Preparing for the Eclipse in Roswell, Georgia

first_imgTraffic We anticipate the increase to begin August 20th, the day before the eclipse, as well as the three to four hours before and after the eclipse on the 21st. We’re also anticipating a slight increase in motor vehicle accidents as people try to watch or film the eclipse while driving. Here in Georgia, American Medical Response (AMR) services the 9-1-1 zones for North Fulton, South Fulton, Dekalb and Troup Counties. We’re fortunate in the sense that the highly-populated metro Atlanta area is just outside of the totality path. We’ll witness a 97% partial eclipse. The totality of the eclipse in Georgia will be generalized in the extreme northeast of the state, and most people in the metro Atlanta area will be traveling to that region for the best views. Altered School Schedules In Georgia, solar power can provide up to 31% of the electricity that’s used by its residents. With that in mind, we have concerns about the impact this will have on solar-powered homes and facilities. Schools in the area will be delaying student dismissal until after the eclipse has taken place. This will have all the local schools letting students out at or around the same time, which will increase traffic congestion. The AMR North Fulton market is where Georgia State Route 400 is located. This is a major artery that feeds into Northeast Georgia from the Metro Atlanta area, and we expect heavy traffic. We don’t have the best infrastructure when it comes to handling daily traffic, so any increase can be monumental. This is a very exciting time for us and we’re looking forward to it. I’m sure there will be lessons learned once that day is upon us, since we can’t possibly prepare for everything that might happen. Train, Train, Train! To prepare for this, we’ve partnered with our local Fire Departments to ensure that there’s an action plan in place if solar powered homes or facilities experience issues. We’re preparing to assist them as necessary if transports to other facilities or from residences are required. To address this, we’ll be increasing our staffing the day before as well the afternoon of the eclipse to ensure that we’re able to handle any increase in call volume. We’re also strategically posting units around the metro Atlanta area to ensure that we don’t have an increase in response times due to traffic congestion. We started our preparations at the end of July. Our main concern has been the excessive vehicle traffic we foresee as visitors from Atlanta travel to northeast Georgia and back for the viewing. Lastly, and importantly, we want our field crews prepared for the event as well. The best way to accomplish that is through education. We also look to them for ideas about how best we can prepare and what they will need from us. Solar Powered Residences and Facilities The field crews are on the frontlines and we take their concerns and ideas into our planning processes. Along with our action plan for the day before and the day of the eclipse, we’ve sent out informational handouts on the eclipse and what to expect.last_img read more

Thrilled Scientists Find Elusive Higgs Particle Seen as Key to the Universe

first_imgAddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to FacebookFacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitterTwitterShare to EmailEmailEmailShare to RedditRedditRedditShare to MoreAddThisMoreScientists announced yesterday that millions of dollars and years of effort in Europe have paid off in the search for the elusive particle called the Higgs boson. Dubbed the “God particle” in popular media, it is presumed to be at the heart of the Universe’s creation and key to the understanding of mass.The discovery of a new sub-atomic particle, which was remarkably close to what researchers suspected the Higgs boson to be, was “a stunning triumph of both theory and experiment”. Peter Higgs, now 83, a theorist who envisioned the particle as a young man in 1964, teared up as he attended the announcement in Geneva.(READ the story in the Washington Post – WATCH the announcement and explanation below from CERN)(ALSO: Higgs boson discovery could usher in ‘new, wonderful technologies’ – CS Monitor你需要安装能够查看此内容的 Adobe Flash Player。Please click here to continue.AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to FacebookFacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitterTwitterShare to EmailEmailEmailShare to RedditRedditRedditShare to MoreAddThisMorelast_img read more

Sharp Adds IoT Dashboard, Synappx, for Its Windows Collaboration Display Users

first_imgSharp Imaging and Information Company of America (SIICA) launched Synappx WorkSpaces. Synappx WorkSpaces enhances the functionality of the Windows collaboration display (WCD) from Sharp by leveraging the device’s data collection modules into a dashboard to provide organizations with the data and analytics needed to make informed decisions about their WCD technology and workspace productivity investments.These insights are a key driver for implementing work transformation initiatives, according to IDC’s recent “Future of Work Survey.” Synappx Workspaces helps organizations meet their productivity goals by providing data on whether employees are using Windows collaboration displays, tracking who is booking a shared workspace and determining if meetings are taking place as scheduled. In addition, this type of analytical data is becoming increasingly valuable as many businesses begin assessing how to return to the office once the COVID-19 pandemic subsides and ensure they do so with increased employee productivity.Designed to address common workspace challenges for businesses of any size, Synappx WorkSpaces monitors ambient conditions, such as temperature changes and attendee impact on the meeting environment. Its analytics provide alert notifications about factors that can impact employee productivity, such as temperature, humidity and air quality. It does this by combining data collected by the IoT sensor hub on the Windows collaboration display with data from Microsoft 365.last_img read more

Harnessing ADHD for business success: Impulsivity materializes in entrepreneurial action

first_imgLinkedIn The symptoms of ADHD foster important traits associated with entrepreneurship. That conclusion was reached in a study conducted by an international team of economists, who found that entrepreneurs with ADHD embrace new experiences and demonstrate passion and persistence. Their intuitive decision making in situations involving uncertainty was seen by the researchers as a reason for reassessing existing economic models.Poor concentration, hyperactivity, a lack of self-regulation – at first glance, the symptoms of ADHD would seem to lower performance. On the other hand, successful entrepreneurs are frequently reported to have ADHD. “We noticed sometime that some symptoms of ADHD resemble behaviors commonly associated with entrepreneurship – in a positive sense,” says Prof. Holger Patzelt of the Entrepreneurship Research Institute at the Technical University of Munich (TUM).In cooperation with Johan Wiklund, professor at the Syracuse University, and Dimo Dimov, professor at the University of Bath, Patzelt asked 14 self-employed people with ADHD about their diagnoses, their careers and their personal background. The study shows that important symptoms of ADHD had a decisive impact on the subjects’ decision to go into business and on their entrepreneurial approach: Pinterest Share Emailcenter_img Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Impulsiveness:People with ADHD are quick to lose their patience. Several of the participants in the study cited boredom in their previous jobs as a reason for setting up their own company, where they could follow up on their own ideas whenever they wanted. One woman reported that she had introduced 250 new products within just a few years. In situations that would be highly stressful for others, such as difficult meetings with important customers, many of those surveyed felt at ease and stimulated. “Their impulsiveness, resulting from ADHD, gives them the advantage of being able to act under unforeseen circumstances without falling into anxiety and paralysis,” says Patzelt.Most of those surveyed act without thinking, even when making far-reaching decisions. One of the entrepreneurs described buying a friend’s company over lunch. He only learned of the friend’s plan to retire during the meal. Other participants reported that they make investments with no strategy and commit large sums of money to projects with highly uncertain outcomes. Some entrepreneurs believe that this kind of quick decision making is the only way to be productive, and are willing to live with setbacks as a result. Some have difficulty coping with structured activities.“A marked willingness to try out new things and take risks is an important entrepreneurial trait,” says Patzelt. However, the respondents’ impulsive actions led to success only when they focused on activities essential to the development of their businesses. One disadvantage of their impulsiveness was mentioned by all of them: problems with routine tasks such as bookkeeping.Hyperfocus:When people with ADHD have a strong interest in a task, they display an unusual level of concentration known as hyperfocus. One entrepreneur reported that he often becomes completely absorbed in crafting customer solutions. Another constantly keeps up with the new technologies in his industry to the point that he is now much in demand as an expert. “With their passion and persistence, and the expertise they acquire as a result, entrepreneurs can gain a substantial competitive advantage,” says Patzelt.High activity level:Many of the entrepreneurs in the study work day and night without taking time off. That is due to the their hyperfocus, but also to the physical restlessness associated with ADHD. The entrepreneurs use this to fuel their workload. As their energy levels are not constant throughout the day, an advantage in running their own businesses is that they can set their own hours.“Logic of people with ADHD symptoms is better attuned to entrepreneurial action”Summing up the results, Patzelt says, “ADHD was a key factor in their decision to go into business for themselves and decisively impacted important entrepreneurial traits: risk taking, passion, persistence and time commitment. Impulsiveness has a special role to play. For People with ADHD it is okay to make intuitive decisions even if the results are bad.”Although one third of those surveyed failed in their business ventures or had little success, Patzelt sees the results of the study as vital for prompting a reassessment of prevailing assumptions in entrepreneurship research: “The way we evaluate entrepreneurial decisions is largely based on rationality and good outcomes. In view of the multitude of uncertainties, however, can such decisions always be rational? People with ADHD show us a different logic that is perhaps better suited to entrepreneurship.”last_img read more

Microcephaly cases rise; Zika detected in amniotic fluid

first_imgToday the number of suspected microcephaly cases in Brazil grew, and yesterday scientists detailed Zika virus findings in the amniotic fluid of two pregnant women, adding more evidence to a possible link between the condition in infants and Zika virus infection.In other developments, local transmission was confirmed in two more Caribbean territories—the Dutch islands of Aruba and Bonaire—raising the total affected locations in the Americas to 28.More microcephaly casesBrazil’s health ministry today reported 201 more suspected microcephaly cases, a condition that might be tied to Zika infection in which infants are born with small heads and underdeveloped brains.The ministry also confirmed 46 earlier cases but ruled out 72 others, putting the number under investigation at 3,935, according to an official statement translated and posted by Avian Flu Diary, an infectious disease news blog.So far 508 cases have been confirmed and 837 have been ruled out, from a cumulative total of 5,280 suspected cases. Brazil’s confirmed microcephaly cases are from 203 cities in 13 of the country’s states.Virus in amniotic fluidIn research developments, Brazilian scientists yesterday published full case findings on Zika virus detection in the amniotic fluid of two pregnant women who had microcephalic fetuses, initially announced by Brazil’s health ministry in the middle of November. The team published its findings in an early online edition of The Lancet Infectious Diseases.Both women had symptoms of Zika virus infection in their first trimester of pregnancy. Ultrasounds at 22 weeks gestation confirmed microcephaly, and researchers obtained amniotic fluid at 28 weeks. Tests confirmed the presence of Zika virus genomes as well as Zika antibodies.Tests on the women were negative for other infectious diseases, and samples of blood and urine were negative for Zika virus. When researchers compared the Zika virus genome from the amniotic fluid to samples from a previous outbreak, they found that they were genetically related to the strain implicated in French Polynesia’s 2013 outbreak.French Polynesian and Swiss experts writing in a related commentary said the findings strongly suggest but don’t prove that Zika virus causes microcephaly and that the next step is to do case-control studies to sift out the risk of microcephaly and other complications stemming from maternal Zika virus infections.CDC travel restrictions for Aruba, BonaireThe Pan American Health Organization (PAHO) added the Dutch territories Aruba and Bonaire to its list of locations in the Americas with confirmed local Zika virus spread, bringing the number of affected areas to 28.Aruba and Bonaire are part of a trio of islands in the Caribbean off the coast of Venezuela, and local spread had recently been confirmed in nearby Curacao.The confirmations prompted the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) to add the two destinations to its level 2 travel warning, which urges pregnant women or those considering becoming pregnant to consider postponing travel to areas where the virus is circulating.World Bank pledges $150 millionAlso, in a show of support for Caribbean and Latin American countries battling the virus, the World Bank Group today announced $150 million in immediate funding, based on each country’s needs. In a statement, the group said it is ready to increase its support if needed.The World Bank also released initial projection of the economic impact to the area, which it said will be modest, at $3.5 billion for 2016. It said the estimate assumes a swift international response to the threat and that the main health threat will be to pregnant women.It added that the group of countries that depend on tourism, especially in the Caribbean, could suffer a loss of more than 1% of gross domestic product.See also:Feb 18 Avian Flu Diary postFeb 17 Lancet Infect Dis case studyFeb 17 Lancet Infect Dis commentaryFeb 17 Lancet press releasePAHO list of confirmed Zika transmission areas in the AmericasCDC Zika-related travel advisoryFeb 18 World Bank press releaselast_img read more

(Photo by T.J. Tijerina)By LARRY GAGESpecial to the PRESSThe Port Isabel Tarpons got back to playing Tarpon football last Friday night at Rio Hondo. After a slow first half, in which the score was tied at seven most of the way, Port Isabel scored four touchdowns after intermission, while holding the Bobcats scoreless, and won the District 32-3A title, 36-7.With the win, the Tarpons (3-1 district, 7-3 overall), clinch a playoff berth and a share of the district championship. Port Isabel came in tied with La Feria for first place in District 32-3A with a 2-1 record, with Rio Hondo and Hidalgo right behind, both with 1-1 district records. Hidalgo beat Progreso Friday night, 49-0. This Friday, Hidalgo will travel to La Feria and a win for either team will lift them into a tie with P.I. for the district title. Rio Hondo drops to 1-2, 5-4.Rio Hondo got the ball first and scored on a 43-yard dash by Hernan Guerrero less than four minutes in. Port Isabel answered right back with a 24-yard Isaiah Martinez-Michael Curry touchdown pass at the 4:04 mark of the first quarter and the score was tied at seven.The Tarpons twice held the Bobcats on downs and the two sides traded punts, the last of which gave Port Isabel the ball at their own 37-yard line with just over a minute left in the half. Five plays later, on second down at the Rio Hondo 34, Martinez hit Andrew Holland in stride as he ran into the end zone with one second showing on the clock. Marcelo Sanchez’s extra-point kick was good and the Tarpons led 14-7 at the break.“That was huge,” Tarpons Head Coach Monty Stumbaugh said when it was all over. “(We got) the momentum going into the half. We drew that one up in the dirt.”“That was a big catch,” Martinez said after the game. “I give him (Holland) credit and I have to thank my linemen for giving me time, and the running backs too.”Another signature aspect of Tarpon football is the running game, and in the second half Port Isabel got it going full-speed. After a scoreless third quarter, Javier Vela went over from a yard out, ending a 10-play, 47-yard drive, and P.I. was up 21-7 with under 11 minutes to play.Juan Aguilera broke up the middle like a cannon shot and streaked 51 yards to put the Tarpons up, 28-7. Jaime Gonzalez went 32 yards with 3:27 to go to close out the scoring, and that was a final, 36-7.“In the first half, they did a great job on our running game,” Stumbaugh said on Saturday. “In the second half we were able to run the ball.”Port Isabel rushed for 198 yards on the night. Juan Aguilera led the way with 82 yards (7.5 ave., 2 TD’s) and Jaime Gonzalez had 42 yards (10.5 ave., 1 TD).The Tarpons got their passing game going again as well. After gaining a net total of less than 20 yards (two completions) through the air the last two games combined, quarterback Isaiah Martinez completed five of nine for a season-best 101 yards and two touchdowns.“We knew we could throw the ball,” Stumbaugh said. “The coaching staff saw some things on film.” On the Martinez-to-Curry TD pass; “They bit on the run fake and Michael was able to get behind them.”Kenny Herrera ran for the two-point conversion on the Tarpons’ last touchdown. Ryan Vasquez returned a kick-off for 39 yards, Luis Aguilera got 10 yards on a punt return, and Marcelo Sanchez made all four of his PAT kicks.On the other side of the ball, Danny Medina and Jacques Guillot led the Tarpon D with six stops each and Kenny Herrera intercepted a fourth-quarter pass.The Tarpons are off this week and await the winner of this Friday’s Lyford-Raymondville game, which will likely decide Port Isabel’s first round, bi-district playoff opponent from District 31-3A.Read this story in the Nov. 5 edition of the Port Isabel-South Padre Press, or subscribe to our E-Edition by clicking here.
