City eyeing way for water users to manage costs
November 23, 2014
It is a genuine challenge for Evansville water customers to make it very long without having a water-line break. It happens often, and seemingly too often on the homeowner’s side of the meter. If it is on the government side of the meter, it is the city’s responsibility. That rarely seems to happen. More often, it is on the resident’s side of the meter and therefore it’s the resident’s responsibility to pay for the break.

Meter readers given hand devises to counter over-billing
November 22, 2014
RAWALPINDI, Nov. 22 -- IESCO has started giving Hand Held Unit (HHU) to its meter readers to avoid over billing issues. HHU is a device already being used in noting the readings of gas meters. However, meter readers are being trained to how to use new meter readers. Almost 200 meter readers are being trained for this purpose in Rawalpindi. Numeral people have issued notice to IESCO through court to get back their overpaid money, whereas IESCO has planned to adjust the overpaid money through bills.

Two reports of cars with punctured gasoline tanks
November 20, 2014
TWO REPORTS OF CARS WITH PUNCTURED GASOLINE TANKS FIRE ROUNDUP There's a new way to steal gasoline and Spokane Valley Fire Department firefighters are left to clean up the mess. There have been two instances lately where someone has crawled under cars and used a drill to make a small hole in the gas tank to drain off the fuel, said Fire Marshal Kevin Miller. "It's pretty dangerous," Miller said. "You can catch yourself on fire doing something stupid like that." The first case was reported on Nov. 6. The car's owner was refilling his gas tank at the 7-11 on North Argonne Road when the method of gas theft was discovered. "While they were putting gas in, there was gas coming out," Miller said.

AAXA LED Android Projector
November 14, 2014
The AAXA LED Android Projector ($499) is a portable mini-projector that packs in a lot of features, most prominently a built-in Android operating system. It's capable of projecting Android apps and games at a much larger size than you can get on your phone or tablet. Although its video and photo quality are underwhelming, it has good data-image quality, and a nice range of ports for a small projector. Design and Features The all-black LED Android is a mini-projector, slightly larger than palmtop size. It measures 1.4 by 5.9 by 5.2 inches (HWD) and weighs 1.5 pounds. Behind the lens is a focus ring. In back are the connectors: a VGA port; an HDMI port; a USB Type A port; a mini USB Type B port; a composite audio/video-in port; and a headphone jack. It also has 4 GB of internal storage. This DLP-based projector has a 550-lumen LED, and a native WXGA (1,280-by-800) resolution. Its light source is rated for 20,000 hours of use, which should last the lifetime of the projector.

Sea State Determination from Ship-Based Geodetic GPS
November 01, 2014
FULL TEXT ABSTRACT Ocean waves have a profound impact on navigation, offshore operations, recreation, safety, and the economic vitality of a nation's maritime and coastal communities. This study demonstrates that ships equipped with geodetic GPS and a radar gauge can provide accurate estimates of sea state. The Research Vessel (R/V) Kilo Moana recorded 1-Hz data for the entire period of a 10-day cruise around the Hawaiian Islands. Solving for precise kinematic positions for the ship and combining these solutions with the ranges from the ship to the sea surface provided by the radar gauge, it was possible to retrieve 1-Hz estimates of the sea surface elevation along the cruise track. Converting these into estimates of significant wave height, strong agreement was found with wave buoy measurements and hindcast wave data.
