Grads and proms enjoy substance-free, all-night party – News – telegram.com

In 1980, after seven teens were killed in three separate alcohol- and other drug-related car crashes during the previous commencement season, adults in the Oxford Hills, Maine, area began having all-night alcohol- and substance-free celebrations for graduating high school seniors to keep them safe. Dubbed Project Graduation, the all-nighters in some form has spread to high schools in all 50 states. Some schools choose to do a similar event after the prom. Richard J. Cormier, a graphic arts teacher and president of Project Graduation at Oxford Hills Comprehensive High School, said this will be the 37th year the all-night event is held for seniors after commencement. In addition to fun activities and food, the event receives so much support from throughout the region that organizers began giving away a used car that was overhauled by students in different technical shops at the school as an incentive and reward for attendance. Since the 30th celebration in 2010, and on every five-year cycle, they give away a brand-new car that an area dealership provides at a discounted price. Attendance is high each year, but particularly when a car and $500 to a male and female student are given...

All 2,493 items targeted by China’s tariffs in US trade war — Quartz

China’s latest tariff retaliation, announced today, will hit some $60 billion in US exports, including hundreds of agricultural, mining, and manufactured products, threatening jobs and profits at companies around the United States.  Before the trade war starts in earnest, China bought about 17% of US agricultural exports and was a major market for other goods, from Maine lobster to Boeing aircraft. It has been the largest market for Apple iPhones since 2016. Since the escalation of tariffs, though, China has stopped buying soybeans and lobsters, and Apple warned it would miss its expected Christmas holiday sales figures because of trade tensions. In addition to the 25% tariffs below, Beijing also added 20% tariffs on 1,078 US products, 10% tariffs on 974 US products, and 5% tariffs on 595 US products (all links in Chinese). The list was translated from China’s ministry of finance press release using Google translate, and may be inexact in spots. Quartz also rearranged some items on the list to group them into categories, and they may not be in the order of their “harmonized tariff schedule” codes.  Barbed Wire, Razor Wire, Conveyor Belt, Metal Meshes, Stainless Steel Wire ̵...

Here we are, this is the final installment of StereoNET’s High End Munich 2019 Show Report.

Here we are, this is the final installment of StereoNET’s High End Munich 2019 Show Report. We hope that you’ve enjoyed our virtual walk-around. We haven’t mentioned massive horns for a while it seems. Well, we are confident that the ESD Dragon system will not disappoint. This five-way design packs in the S30 Subwoofer+E20 Horn, S100 Woofer Driver+E100 Horn, S500 Mid-range Driver+E500 Horn, S2000 Tweeter Driver, S8000 Super Tweeter Driver, D08C-1B Field Coil Power Supply all supported by the Opera Frame. It did sound rather good, but our main takeaway was that if they could get it in this room then assembling it in a home should be no problem. If you were wondering, this system is supplied with its electronics and unique crossovers, but you are in ‘money no object’ territory. The good news is that if you have a regular-sized home ESD produces loudspeakers such as the Crane Horn Floorstanding Speaker and the Panda Field Coil Bookshelf Speaker either of which we would gladly test in our homes. Another company which produces goods for the pro audio market, as well as the domestic one, is the Dutch-based Grimm Audio. They have a good spread of kit on offer including cabl...

MBI’s Worcester expansion should get more biotech startups off the ground

Due to our new system upgrade, we are requesting all existing users to update their password. Create a new password Inside dozens of closet-sized laboratories in three different Worcester buildings is a goldmine of biotechnology brainpower and promising research just waiting for the right opportunity to explode onto the marketplace. By the end of the year, that space will more than double and allow for companies to grow with Worcester biotech incubator Massachusetts Biomedical Initiatives. The new space is the former Cogmedix facility at 17 Briden St. in Worcester. MBI, currently in two facilities at Gateway Park and another on Barber Avenue totaling about 16,000 square feet, will move into 20,000 square feet of space on Briden Street by the end of the year. An additional 18 labs for early stage startup companies will be added, but MBI is hoping to expand its business model by adding suites of 1,000 square feet for companies not quite ready for the private real estate marketplace. “This will give us an opportunity to keep these companies in the nest a little bit longer, help them grow sustainably and go from there,” said Jon Weaver, president and CEO of MBI. The incubator’s gro...

Viscosity the most important physical property of a lubricating oil, as determines how easily the oil

Viscosity the most important physical property of a lubricating oil, as determines how easily the oil circulates and its load carrying capability. Maintaining the correct balance between low viscosity for ease of circulation and high viscosity for load carrying is important for the application of any type of lubricant. Oil provides other benefits in addition to lubrication, so it is important that it is able to flow under any condition. During use, the oil viscosity is influenced by contaminants such as water, oxidation, fuel entering the oil, and soot. This makes viscosity measurement an important test for the oil used in a mechanical system. Kinematic viscosity (the resistance to flow under gravity) is the conventional method to monitor machine condition. Kinematic viscosity, ν, indicates the flow behavior of a substance under the influence of Earth’s gravity. It is calculated by dividing the dynamic viscosity by density (ρ), which is defined as mass per volume. Gravity is constant anywhere on Earth and as a driving force, it does not need any elaborate technical equipment. The SI unit is either mm2/s or m2/s, where 1 m2/s = 1,000,000 mm2/s. The SI units can be derived from th...

Coolsculpting is an FDA-approved treatment that freezes fat cells under the skin, all without damaging the

Coolsculpting is an FDA-approved treatment that freezes fat cells under the skin, all without damaging the surrounding skin or other tissue. Many know that CoolSculpting is a body-shaping process that contours and sculpts the body by freezing fat cells. With that fact in mind, a common question Maine Laser Skin Care gets is, “Are the effects of Coolsculpting permanent?” When people use the word “permanent,” they generally mean forever, or at least a lifetime. While there is no guarantee that CoolSculpting lasts until the end of time, studies have shown that the effects of CoolSculpting can last at least 9 years and counting. In order to understand why CoolSculpting lasts so long and works the way it does, it helps to understand the process of fat loss and weight loss through which your body goes without the use of CoolSculpting. When you lose weight by diet and/or exercise, the effects you see or feel on your body (e.g. clothes fitting better, bulges decreasing in size) happen as a result of fat cells shrinking in size. Conversely, when you gain weight, these same fat cells swell or increase in size to accommodate more fat produced by your body’s metabolism. In other words, duri...
