I can't believe someone could NOT understand what Beverly Hall did. She encourage and sponsored cheating for profit at the expense of children. Clear enough for you? I must be getting old. I remember when CNN actually reported news.

False alarm on the Edisto
April 20, 2014
The South Fork of the Edisto River recently was included on a list of the nation s 10 most endangered waterways by American Rivers, a national environmental group. And it might actually have belonged on that list had not a dispute over the withdrawal of water from the river been satisfactorily resolved earlier this year. As it is, the listing is misleading as to the actual protections enjoyed on the Edisto and to the efforts that brought about those safeguards. The agreement reached with Walther Farms includes reducing by 50 percent the projected volume of water to be taken from the Edisto for farm irrigation, limiting the further harvesting of hardwoods along the river, putting an agricultural easement on the land, and paying for the installation and operation of a continual flow monitor in the river. Walther Farms agreed to use groundwater to irrigate during periods of low flow. It also has provided substantial setbacks along the river.

Cartell Announces a Stand-alone Driveway Alert System with Added Floodlight Control.
April 19, 2014
  Salunga, PA (PRWEB) April 19, 2014           Cartell's DriveGuard Ultra™ system is the result of over thirty years of product evolution, culminating in a system that offers more features, longevity and reliable performance than any other vehicle detection product in the industry.           The DriveGuard Ultra™ system is made up of three components: a sensor probe that is buried beside and toward the end of the driveway, a control unit installed in the home, and electronic sounders that may be installed in multiple locations in the home or other structures on the property. Electronic buttons on the sounder faceplate allow the homeowner to interact with the control unit to turn the lights on and off manually and turn the sensor probe off for an adjustable amount of time.           A 15-amp floodlight relay on the DriveGuard Ultra™ allows 1800 watts of light from a single circuit to be integrated with the system. When the home owner returns at night, lights outside and inside the home will be automatically turned on, giving a pathway of safety into the home. When strangers (or would-be criminals) drive up, they will know they have been professionally detected and the house will be made to look occupied.             To keep the lights off during daylight, a photocell comes standard with the DriveGuard Ultra™ system.

Potential for windmills at the microscale
April 01, 2014
FULL TEXT Micro-windmills can operate without even standing up. THE CHALLENGE IN FINDING LONG-TERM LUBRICATION solutions for wind turbines is well known and documented. One approach that has been discussed involves finding ways to reduce the stress on individual wind turbines in a farm in order to improve their longevity. In a previous TLT article, researchers used a technique known as Simulator for Offshore /Onshore Wind Farm Applications to examine an existing wind farm and studied five scenarios in which the turbines are spaced in a different manner from each other.1 The results from these scenarios indicate that staggering wind turbines leads to a significant improvement in the efficiency of each individual unit. A second factor is that reduction of the number of wind turbines also results in greater efficiency.

What's New
February 03, 2014
What's New Filter Media Adhesive A cross-linked vinyl acrylic polymer, FilterFAB 3000 can be sprayed directly on filter media by filter manufacturers in order for the now-sticky media to entrap more particulates from the airstream, said the company. The adhesive dries quickly in an oven, minimizing additional production time. Its water-based formulation renders it easy to clean with water when wet, reducing cleanup time. According to the manufacturer, FilterFAB 3000 is a low-volatile organic compound (VOC), formaldehyde-free adhesive that is safe for the environment and for use in air filtration systems. It is pressure sensitive, so it can be used for laminating multiple layers of media to achieve the desired performance level. Franklin Adhesives & Polymers, a division of Franklin Intl. Inc.
