    MARTINSBURG, W.Va. (AP) — Authorities say a West Virginia grandmother has joined her grandson in jail after being accused of smuggling drugs to him behind bars. The Mountain State Fugitive Task Force said 64-year-old Carolyn Lou Gay was arrested Wednesday on 15 charges related to drug possession and delivery.

    How do you deal with extreme heat? I have zeroed in on a strategy that works very well for me. I am retired, on a limited budget, do not own a swimming pool; limited retirement income.I am also lucky to own a 41-year old house, with the originally installed ac/heating unit capable of maintaining a 33-degree differential between outside and inside temperature, apparently indefinitely. Limited only, so far, to the amount I am able to afford for pay for the energy. I do a minimum of work inside the house and keep the thermostat between 78-82, keep the large screen...

  • Fun Fact: That Drawer Underneath Your Stove Isn't for Storage

    Perhaps, like me, you use that drawer located underneath your stove for storing pans, cookie sheets, and muffin tins. Unfortunately, we've all been doing it wrong, according to the good people who manufacture stoves. While it does serve as a great spot for all of your back-up cooking tools, it's actually meant to be a warming drawer. You may notice a message printed on the inside of the drawer or in some sort of owner's manual that says something like this: "The warming drawer is designed to keep hot foods at serving temperature. Always start with hot food. Cold or...
  • Gov. Brown signs bill allowing people to break into cars to rescue animals from heat

    LA Times ^ | 9/24/16 | Patrick McGreevy
    Gov. Jerry Brown on Saturday signed into law a measure allowing Californians to break into vehicles to rescue animals if they appear to be in danger from excessive heat. **SNIP** Under AB 797, a citizen must first call law enforcement to report a situation in which he or she believes an animal to be in peril. But if the animal is in imminent danger, the car is locked, and law enforcement is not arriving quickly enough to save the animal’s life, the bill provides immunity from civil and criminal liability to a person causing vehicle damage for the purpose of...

    China activates bomb shelters Intelligence sources suspect reopening to public is part of strategic deception Posted: June 28, 2005 1:00 a.m. Eastern © 2005 WorldNetDaily.com China's decision to open up massive bomb shelters to the public, ostensibly to provide a respite from summer heat, has U.S. intelligence analysts concerned about a possible strategic deception by Beijing, reports Joseph Farah's G2 Bulletin. The government made a high-profile public announcement, carried by the official Xinhua news agency, this week that bomb shelters in central Chongqing would be opened to the public to allow residents to cool off during a heat wave in...

    JAISALMER: Left in the heat with its legs tied all day, a camel attacked its owner and severed his head in anger in Rajasthan's Barmer district on Saturday. About 25 villagers struggled for 6 hours to calm the animal down. Urjaram of Mangta village was entertaining guests at his house on Saturday night when he suddenly realised that his camel had been out in the heat all day with its legs tied. He was attacked when he tried to untie the annoyed animal. "The animal lifted him by the neck and threw him on to the ground, chewed the body...

    The upper-air weather pattern over North America this week has been an extreme one that has yielded record-breaking results. An area of low pressure in the upper atmosphere that pushed into California on Monday dove southward into Mexico, where it became mostly detached from the main jet stream to the north. This allowed it to stall over northern Mexico, resulting in rare March snow for parts of that country and extreme flooding in the southern United States. At the same time, the jet stream built north over southeast Canada, where an expansive area of high pressure both aloft and at...

    Man-made heat put into the world's oceans has DOUBLED since 1997: Energy absorbed equivalent to Hiroshima bomb being exploded every second for 75 years The amount of man-made heat energy absorbed by the seas has doubled since 1997, a new study has revealed. Scientists have long known that more than 90 percent of the heat energy from man-made global warming goes into the world's oceans instead of the ground. Researchers have now tracked how much man-made heat has been buried in the oceans in the past 150 years.

  • Lasers could rapidly make materials hotter than the Sun

    11/16/2015 12:54:59 AM PST · by LibWhacker · 11 replies
    Lasers could heat materials to temperatures hotter than the centre of the Sun in only 20 quadrillionths of a second, according to new research. Theoretical physicists from Imperial College London have devised an extremely rapid heating mechanism that they believe could heat certain materials to ten million degrees in much less than a million millionth of a second. The method, proposed here for the first time, could be relevant to new avenues of research in thermonuclear fusion energy, where scientists are seeking to replicate the Sun’s ability to produce clean energy. The heating would be about 100 times faster than...

    Wherever you live or happen to travel to, never complain about the heat and humidity again. In the city of Bandar Mahshahr (population of about 110,000 as of 2010), the air felt like a searing 165 degrees (74 Celsius) today factoring in the humidity. Although there are no official records of heat indices, this is second highest level we have ever seen reported.
  • Saharan silver ants can control electromagnetic waves over extremely broad spectrum range

    Phys.Org ^ | 06-18-2015 | Provided by Columbia University School of Engineering and Applied Science
    Nanfang Yu, assistant professor of applied physics at Columbia Engineering, and colleagues from the University of Zürich and the University of Washington, have discovered two key strategies that enable Saharan silver ants to stay cool in one of the hottest terrestrial environments on Earth. Yu's team is the first to demonstrate that the ants use a coat of uniquely shaped hairs to control electromagnetic waves over an extremely broad range from the solar spectrum (visible and near-infrared) to the thermal radiation spectrum (mid-infrared), and that different physical mechanisms are used in different spectral bands to realize the same biological function...

    Ben Gurion University reported Monday that researcher Mordechai Guri, assisted by Matan Munitz and guided by Prof. Yuval Elovici, uncovered a way to breach air-gapped systems—that's quite something considering that air-gapped systems, said the Daily Mail, are among the most secure computers on the planet, used in high security settings such as classified military networks, payment networks processing credit and debit card transactions for retailers, and industrial control systems for critical infrastructure. The research initiative was given the name BitWhisper, part of research on the topic of air-gap security at the Cyber Security Research Center at Ben-Gurion University. Dudu Mimran,...

    Smoke wafting from wood fires has long provided a familiar winter smell in many parts of the country -- and, in some cases, a foggy haze that has filled people's lungs with fine particles that can cause coughing and wheezing. Citing health concerns, the Environmental Protection Agency now is pressing ahead with regulations to significantly limit the pollution from newly manufactured residential wood heaters. But some of the states with the most wood smoke -- including Minnesota and Wisconsin -- are refusing to go along, claiming that the EPA's new rules could leave low-income residents in the cold. Missouri and...

    Coal is a small part of Colorado’s economy as a whole, but nearly half of the statewide industry is based in far northwest Colorado, where it helps boost average household income higher than the average for the state as a whole. ... While coal mining directly accounts for 4.6 percent of the region’s total employees, at 1,545 jobs, it makes up more than 17 percent of the region’s total economic output, says the report, by Broomfield economist Gary Horvath. Another 571 people are directly employed in the region’s electrical power generation industry, which is supplied by locally generated coal, and...
