Fire Marshal Provides Safety Tips During Burn Awareness Week

YPE html PUBLIC “-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN” “http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-transitional.dtd”> HYANNIS – National Burn Awareness Week is underway and State Fire Marshal Peter Ostroskey is providing tips to remain safe at home, work or outdoors. The theme this year from the American Burn Association is “Contact Burns – Hot Surfaces Damage Skin.” According to data from the Massachusetts Burn Injury Reporting System, children under five account for one-quarter of all reported burn injuries, and 45 percent of all contact burns were to children under five over the past ten years. Ostroskey said toddlers are busy exploring their environment as a part of learning and that it is important to supervise them and keep them away from danger. The leading causes of contact burns to young children are from touching heating and cooking equipment, other household items, and walking barefoot on hot pavement. On November 9, an 11-month-old boy touched the glass portion of an oven in use and received severe third degree burns to his hand. The following day, an 11-month-old boy fell onto a baseboard heater at home and received severe burns to his...

Nergal’s Me and That Man Debut ‘Burning Churches’ Christmas Song

Another new song from Me and That Man, the dark folk side project spearheaded by Behemoth visionary Nergal, is an unlikely Christmas tune which confronts sexual abuse within the church, presented as an animated video. While the subject matter is obscenely dark — a boy once abused by a priest enacts revenge as a Satanic anti-hero who torches a church — the song itself has an upbeat jangle thanks to the emotive guest contribution from singer Mat McNerney (Grave Pleasures, ex-Beastmilk, Hexvessel). “If someone would have told me one day, I’d release a Xmas song, I would have burst into laughter. Hell freezes over and I present to you, ‘Burning Churches,’” Nergal stated. “This time I team up with Mat McNerney from the legendary Beastmilk, Grave Pleasures, DHG and Hexvessel. Make yourself comfortable around the Christmas tree, stoke the fire and grab yourself a drink! Hallelujah.” Read the lyrics to “Burning Churches” directly below and watch the animated video further down the page. That night I saw the flames flicker on the television set The vicar’s tears fell as he faced the camera menAnd my mother grabbed her crucifixAnd drew in h...

The panels are typically sold in 16-foot lengths at feed stores and range from 34 inches

The panels are typically sold in 16-foot lengths at feed stores and range from 34 inches to 50 inches in height. Technically, only the shorter panels are for containing pigs, while the taller versions are often labeled as sheep or cattle panels.

Technically, only the shorter panels are for containing pigs, while the taller versions are often labeled as sheep or cattle panels. The spaces between the wires are large compared to mesh fencing – usually 4 inches by 4 inches or 6 inches by 6 inches. The wider spacing coupled with beefier wires makes hog panels more aesthetically attractive than wire mesh fencing, so it is often used in landscaping projects. Here are three ways to use them to make a trellis. This version is best for lightweight annual vines like peas, beans, nasturtiums or gourds. It’s also a good choice for supporting ‘cane’ fruits, such as blackberries and raspberries. Use it on any exterior wall – house, barn or shed – that you don’t mind drilling a few holes into.

Gaming control board calls POM ‘skills’ games ‘illegal slot machines’

WILKES-BARRE — Pennsylvanians Against Illegal Gambling last week applauded the Pennsylvania Gaming Control Board’s effort to intervene in the ongoing court fight to ban Pace-O-Matic of Pennsylvania’s slot machines from the state, noting that the PGCB states unequivocally that, “The POM games are unauthorized and illegal slot machines.” The PGCB filing also states that while the state’s “…permissible and authorized slot machines pay a tax rate of approximately 52% of gross terminal revenue … the operation by POM of unauthorized slot machines actually illegally diverts tax monies from lawful slot machines and other gaming products like the lottery from the intended Commonwealth beneficiary.” “Bottom line: these machines are out of control and they have got to go,” said Peter Shelly, a spokesman for PAIG. “The state’s gaming regulators are joining with the PA State Police, Gov. Wolf, the PA Lottery and Pennsylvanians across the state who want these illegal machines outlawed. It’s time for lawmakers to act to ban these machines once and for all from our state.” The PGCB action is just the latest setback for the illegal slots machines operators. State police continue to conduct raids...

Despite economic challenges in Central Europe exacerbated by Brexit and US-led protectionist policies, hoist suppliers remain

Despite economic challenges in Central Europe exacerbated by Brexit and US-led protectionist policies, hoist suppliers remain bullish about future sales in the region. Tom Woerndl reports. Central Europe has long been the envy of nations around the world. After all, countries like Switzerland, Germany and Austria boast high living standards, developed economies and well-funded welfare states. However, global political and economic insecurity—fuelled by the protectionist policies of the US—as well an uncertainty in Europe over Brexit and the future of the European Union, has led to some stagnation of key industrial sectors in this region. This sobering prognosis is having an effect on sales of hoists, as confirmed by Oliver Riese, export manager at German crane manufacturer Kuli, which is based in North Rhine-Westphalia, in the west of the country. “The European markets in most areas are still weaker than they are in other regions of the world,” he says. “Brexit has caused significant insecurity and prevented companies from investing. As a consequence, maintenance and service of existing technology is increasing and, as we are active in this segment, we are able to profit from t...

Power study finds, but it… Shopping for car insurance, like many other types of shopping, has largely moved online, a new J.D. Power study finds, but it adds that while consumers shop for insurance online, many still make the actual purchase through an agent. The study found that 74% of shoppers use insurer websites or aggregators for obtaining quotes and researching information. While nearly half of customers obtain a quote via insurer websites, only 25% actually purchase their policy online; 50% close through an agent and 22% phone a call center. “While many customers want to shop online, they often still want to talk to someone when they buy their insurance to make sure they are getting the right coverage or have questions about their policy answered,” said Hoeg. “Insurers need to focus on the delicate balance of providing an easy shopping experience while providing product differentiation and professional service.” Erie Insurance and Liberty Mutual tied for first place in providing a satisfying purchase experience, each with a score of 853. This marks the fourth consecut...

YouTuber takes fancy photos in Ikea, claims she’s on Bali vacation

(CNN) — You shouldn’t believe everything you see on the internet. A popular YouTuber proved that, once again, to be true. Natalia Taylor posted a series of photos on her Instagram that made it seem like she had traveled to a far-off exotic destination. There she was lounging in a fancy bathtub. In another, she posed in front of a floral print mirror. “Sometimes, people want to lie about who they are,” she said in the YouTube video. “It’s not hard to do.” The first set of photos featured a flower print mirror — it sure looked like a fancy hotel room. The baby blue wall phone only helped set the scene. The next shots showed Taylor posed on a sun lounger and in a bathtub, dressed in a white robe with a towel wrapped around her head. At the same time, she also posted videos of Bali to her Instagram story. Some were sent from friends who had visited. Others she found online. There was one who noticed something awry — an Ikea price tag on a chair in the mirror’s reflection. It didn’t matter. The photos got tens of thousands of likes. Bali, Taylor explained, was “the perfect place to fake an influencer vacation and lie to all of my followers.” “Today it is easier than ever to become an...

ANCA software, Zoller equipment improve longevity, repeatability, and predictability for California Tool and Cutter Grind.

ANCA software, Zoller equipment improve longevity, repeatability, and predictability for California Tool and Cutter Grind. Regrinding – Small in scope, the service offers cost-effective tool life extension by regrinding tools with complex geometries Complex cutting tools can have many different geometrical features – hook, helix, clearance angles – within the same tools. That variety is why California Tool and Cutter Grind has remained outside the catalog market. “We’re not trying to compete with catalog companies,” says California Tool Manufacturing Manager Jordan Armitage. “We are trying to diversify and operate as a high-end, high-performance house that can grind anything.” An area of particular interest to the company is diamond- coated cutting tools, due to their longevity, repeatability, and predictability. Diamond-coated tools are essential to the aerospace industry because they are used to cut carbon fiber. “There’s a specific grade of carbide required to make the diamond-coated tools, and we stock all that in-house to enable us to move quickly on our customer enquiries,” Armitage says. “We manufacture cutting tools to specification and send them out for diamond coating....

Full text of Budget 2020 speech by Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman 

Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman on Saturday presented the second Union Budget of the Modi 2.0 government. Sitharaman, in her maiden Budget speech, announced major tax reliefs for the salaried class and reduced the tax rate for different slabs for an individual income of up to Rs 15 lakh per annum, if a taxpayer opts for foregoing exemptions and deduction. Sitharaman had cut short her Budget speech in Lok Sabha as she felt unwell after speaking for a record 160 minutes. However, this was the longest Budget speech by any finance minister. In May 2019, Prime Minister Modi received a massive mandate to form the government again. With renewed vigour, under his leadership, we commit ourselves to serve the people of India, with all humility and dedication. 2. People of India have unequivocally given their jan-aadesh for not just political stability and also reposed faith in our economic policies. This is the Budget to boost their incomes and enhance their purchasing power. Only through higher growth we can achieve that and have our youth gainfully and meaningfully employed. Let our businesses be innovative, healthy and solvent with use of technology. 3. For today’s youth bor...
