Officials at one Arizona high school announce backpack ban for students

A high school in southeastern Arizona is banning backpacks and other large bags on campus in an effort to protect students.  Starting Monday, students at Douglas High School will only be permitted to use a clear backpack, clear tote or plastic storage bag to carry their items.  The Douglas Unified School District said on Facebook that district and school administrators made the decision “for the safety of our students.”  A graphic of the new Douglas High School bag policy shows that a clear tote that is made of plastic, vinyl or PVC and no larger than 12 inches by 6 inches by 12 inches was among the bags allowed.  Other acceptable bags were a clear, resealable, one gallon plastic storage bag and a small clutch bag or wallet that is about the size of a hand.  Clear backpacks were initially not allowed in the first announcement of this policy, but the district later clarified that students could bring them. Student athletes would also be allowed to bring their team bags.  RELATED: A gun was found in a 9-year-old’s backpack.

When undertaking MIG welding outside, such as on a construction site or farm, exposing the weld

When undertaking MIG welding outside, such as on a construction site or farm, exposing the weld to the weather may hamper progress and compromise the quality of the final result. Effects of wind, or even just a breeze, during the welding process can be a serious problem. Put simply, valuable shielding gas can all too easily get blown away: resulting in porosity, excessive spatter and inferior weld quality. A simple solution is gasless flux cored welding using a Lincoln Innershield wire, a process that was originally designed to replace stick or ‘arc’ welding. As the name suggests, Innershield wires produce their own shielding gas to protect the weld from the atmosphere. This process is perfectly suited for outdoor use – particularly in extreme operating conditions in industries such as agriculture, construction, shipbuilding, mining, and wherever maintenance is required. “Changing to gasless wires brings many benefits, especially in areas where wind can be a problem – they eliminate the inconvenience and expense of shielding gases being blown away, as is often the case with traditional MIG welding. In addition, they make it easy to weld out of position, including vertical up, ve...

BEL AIR, MD — A new water-themed play area broke ground Tuesday morning in Bel Air. Called Chesapeake Sensory Plaza at Rockfield Park, the water-centered attraction is designed to be educational and interactive. It was funded by grants. The 5,000-square-foot space will educate visitors about the role of the Chesapeake Bay watershed through the power of water, according to a statement from American Water. A 60-foot-long channel will be the centerpiece. People will be able to control the flow of water along the channel using hand pumps and water switches. Then they can watch as it travels through various mill wheels, lock gates, forks and other areas where water may collect. “As the first of its kind in the state of Maryland, we are excited to bring this unique educational play space to Bel Air,” Small said in a statement. “As a Sustainable Maryland Certified community, we value the opportunity to teach local families the importance of the Chesapeake Bay and its watershed area.” Black Basalt Paving Stones The American Water Charitable Foundation provided a $150,000 grant for the town to build the new educational addition. “Maryland American Water has ...

China’s key role in scaling low-carbon energy technologies

Meeting the goals of the Paris Agreement will require net zero greenhouse emissions by 2050 and substantial reductions before then. It will also require collaboration with China, which has emerged as the global leader in the mass production of low-carbon energy technologies (LCETs). In part because of China’s investments in manufacturing, the LCETs required to meet climate targets have become increasingly cost-competitive with fossil fuel sources (1). But some attribute China’s rapid rise in LCET sectors to unfair industrial policies—such as forced technology transfer requirements, massive subsidies, and outright intellectual property (IP) theft—aimed at strategically dominating the next generation of energy technologies (2). Trade relations between China and the world are currently unsettled, especially with the United States, a leading producer of both LCET research and development (R&D) and greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. Against this backdrop, we outline why engaging with China is the more promising path to accelerate the global deployment of LCETs and to rapidly bring new technologies to mass production.
