Robin Williams Has Died

first_imgCelebrityEntertainment IndustryFilmTVRobin Williams Has DiedThe actor, who was 63, is suspected to have taken his own lifeBy Shayna Rose Arnold – August 11, 2014547ShareEmailFacebookTwitterPinterestReddItUpdate: August 12According to a statement from the Marin County, California Sheriff’s Office, coroner investigators believe Williams’s death “to be a suicide due to asphyxia.”Sad news: Robin Williams has died. The actor, who was 63, was reportedly found unconscious at his home, and is suspected to have taken his own life. In a statement, Williams’s representative, Mara Buxbaum, said he had recently been battling severe depression. Just last month it was reported the actor had checked into a treatment facility to focus on his sobriety. The Marin County Sheriff’s Department is investigating his death.Williams will be remembered for countless roles—his performances in The Birdcage, Aladdin, Mrs. Doubtfire, and Good Will Hunting, the last of which earned him an Oscar, come first to mind—but we’ll be taking a moment today to look back on one of his lesser-known appearances, as a cover star on our June, 1986 issue. In it, Williams is holding a pineapple upside down while donning a Hawaiian print button-down, a white blazer, a white hat, and some seriously oversized glasses. The outfit is big—the better to fit Williams’ beloved talent and personality.

Dr. Horace Chang, at yesterday’s (June 24) post-Cabinet press briefing at Jamaica House.Providing details of the project, he informed that this would involve replacing the Rio Cobre pipeline in St. Catherine from Tulloch Springs. “It (the pipeline) was made from asbestos piping, which has a lifespan of just about 30 years, and it has just about exceeded that time,” Dr. Chang explained, noting that some two million gallons of water were being lost from this system daily because of leaks.In addition, the Constant Spring plant, which is the largest in the island, is being rehabilitated to increase the current 12 million gallons average daily supply. The plant has the capacity to supply 18 million gallons of water per day.The Seaview plant at Stony Hill is also being rehabilitated, with new lines to run to Red Hills, Forrest Hills and Halls Green into Lawrence Tavern. The line into Halls Green is expected to produce an additional two million gallons per day to the area.As part of the project, a number of medium-sized systems will be constructed in several rural areas to increase overall supply to rural Jamaica from just under 50 per cent to 65 per cent, over the next three years.Parishes to benefit include St. Ann, St. Mary, Northern St. Catherine, Central Manchester and Southern Trelawny. “This particular project will therefore bring to the Corporate Area and St. Catherine central and south, reliable, adequate, domestic water supply, for the first time in many years,” Dr. Chang stated.The project is the largest infrastructure investment to be undertaken by the NWC, since 1985, when the Yallahs Valley pipeline was constructed.On other matters, Cabinet also approved the award of a $2.5 billion contract for the development of Phase III of the Luana housing scheme in St. Elizabeth.The project, Dr. Chang informed journalists, “is part of the Government’s drive, this year, to provide housing solutions, especially to working persons, and is part of a larger scheme that will take about 1,700 units to the Luana area.”This phase of the project will comprise the construction of 51 units inclusive of 48 start-up homes and four lots. Some 270 units are to follow shortly, with the final phase to begin in the last quarter of the year. The project is being done through the National Housing Agency in conjunction with the National Housing Trust. RelatedNWC Undertakes $18.5 Billion Water Development Projectlast_img read more

28 new COVID-19 cases, one more death, confirmed in Clark County

first_img28 new COVID-19 cases, one more death, confirmed in Clark CountyPosted by Chris BrownDate: Thursday, March 26, 2020in: Newsshare 0 The person who died was a man in his 80s who had previously been hospitalized CLARK COUNTY — The number of people testing positive for COVID-19 in Clark County more than doubled on Thursday, according to the public health department, with 28 new confirmed cases bringing the total to 48.One other person died from the disease, bringing the total to five deaths related to COVID-19 in Clark County since the outbreak began. “Two factors are likely contributing to this increase in cases,” said Dr. Alan Melnick, Clark County health officer and Public Health director. “First, we’re able to identify more cases because testing is available to more people than it was a few weeks ago. Second, the disease is spreading more in our community. We don’t know which is the bigger factor for the increase.”The positive results came from a combination of tests done by the state public health lab, as well as health care providers and private labs throughout the state. All were from samples collected in the last two to 10 days.The most recent victim was a man in his 80s, who had previously been hospitalized. He had no known contact with any other confirmed cases.Melnick said there are no known outbreaks of COVID-19 within long-term care facilities in the county.While information about the 28 confirmed cases released today is still being gathered, the county was able to give age ranges.20 to 29 years: 130 to 39 years: 440 to 49 years: 550 to 59 years: 760 to 69 years: 670 to 79 years: 490 to 99 years: 1Melnick said on Wednesday that his office is no longer actively monitoring people who have been in contact with a confirmed case. While they will reach out to all close contacts, they will simply be given information on remaining isolated for at least 14 days from their last contact with a known case.The best defense remains social distancing, keeping at least six feet away from others when out in public. The governor has issued an order that people should remain in their homes through April 8, unless they are working a job deemed essential, or need groceries. You’re advised to limit grocery shopping to only the essentials, and do so once per week if possible.Washing hands for at least 20 seconds, with soap and warm water, has been shown to be the best defense against the virus that causes COVID-19. If you’re in public, try your best to avoid touching your face, especially your nose and mouth. If you can’t wash your hands, using hand sanitizer with at least 60 percent alcohol, and making sure it remains on your hands for at least a full minute should be sufficient.Healthcare providers are urging people to remain home if they are experiencing symptoms, and only come to the hospital if you feel you are in dire need of medical attention. Symptoms and testingWhile testing is available to more people than it was earlier this month, supplies remain limited in Clark County. For this reason, health care providers have to prioritize who receives testing. Not everyone with symptoms will be tested.People with mild symptoms should stay home and away from others until 72 hours after fever is gone and other symptoms improve. People with worsening symptoms or those with conditions that may increase their risk for serious illness – 60 years or older, underlying health conditions or weakened immune systems – should contact their health care provider. Health care providers will determine whether patients need to be evaluated in person and tested for COVID-19.Additional information about COVID-19 symptoms and what individuals should do if they have symptoms is available on the Public Health novel coronavirus website.Public Health will continue to update its novel coronavirus website with new case numbers by 11 a.m. daily. Updates will also be posted on the Public Health Facebook and Twitter accounts. News releases will be issued for other significant changes, such as clusters of deaths or cases, and other Public Health announcements.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textTags:Clark CountyCovid-19Latestshare 0 Previous : Clark County ramps up quest for testing supplies and protective equipment Next : Clark County jail releases close to 200 inmates due to COVID-19AdvertisementThis is placeholder textlast_img read more

‘Nature’s antifreeze’ provides formula for more durable concrete

first_img Published: May 27, 2020 • By Kelsey Simpkins Secrets to cementing the sustainability of our future infrastructure may come from nature, such as proteins that keep plants and animals from freezing in extremely cold conditions. CU Boulder researchers have discovered that a synthetic molecule based on natural antifreeze proteins minimizes freeze-thaw damage and increases the strength and durability of concrete, improving the longevity of new infrastructure and decreasing carbon emissions over its lifetime. They found that adding a biomimetic molecule—one that mimics antifreeze compounds found in Arctic and Antarctic organisms—to concrete effectively prevents ice crystal growth and subsequent damage. This new method, published today in Cell Reports Physical Science, challenges more than 70 years of conventional approaches in mitigating frost damage in concrete infrastructure. Categories:Science & TechnologyNews Headlines Share Share via TwitterShare via FacebookShare via LinkedInShare via E-mail Wil Srubar III. (Credit: CU Boulder) “No one thinks about concrete as a high-tech material,” said Wil Srubar III, author of the new study and assistant professor of civil, environmental and architectural engineering. “But it’s a lot more high-tech than one might think. In the face of climate change, it is critical to pay attention to not only how we manufacture concrete and other construction materials that emit a lot of carbon dioxide in their production, but also how we ensure the long-term resilience of those materials.”Concrete is formed by mixing water, cement powder and various aggregates, like sand or gravel. Since the 1930s, small air bubbles have been put into concrete to protect it from water and ice crystal damage. This allows any water that seeps into the concrete to have room to expand when it freezes. Without it, the surface of damaged concrete will flake off. But this finicky process can come at a cost, decreasing strength and increasing permeability. This allows road salts and other chemicals to leach into the concrete, which can then degrade steel embedded within. “While you’re solving one problem, you’re actually exacerbating another problem,” said Srubar. As the U.S. faces a significant amount of aging infrastructure across the country, billions of dollars are spent each year to mitigate and prevent damage. This new biomimetic molecule, however, could dramatically reduce costs. In tests, concrete made with this molecule—instead of air bubbles—was shown to have equivalent performance, higher strength, lower permeability and a longer lifespan. With a patent pending, Srubar is hoping this new method will enter the commercial market in the next 5 to 10 years.Nature finds a way Top: Cross-sectional images of cement paste samples after freeze-thaw cycling. Figure (g) shows that the right type and amount of antifreeze polymer resulted in no cracking and no damage after freeze-thaw cycling. Figure (a) is the control with no polymer.Bottom: These images show how adding antifreeze polymers in solution can alter the shape of a growing ice crystal. Normal ice crystals grow in a spherical shape, while ice crystals that form in solution with antifreeze polymers form hexagons. (Credit: CU Boulder)  From the below-freezing waters of Antarctica to the ice-cold tundras of the Arctic, many plants, fish, insects and bacteria contain proteins that prevent them from freezing. These antifreeze proteins bind to the surface of ice crystals in an organism the moment they form—keeping them really, really small, and unable to do any damage. “We thought that was quite clever,” said Srubar. “Nature had already found a way to solve this problem.”Concrete suffers from the same issue of ice crystal formation, which previous engineers had tried to mitigate by adding air bubbles. So Srubar and his team thought: Why not gather a bunch of this protein, and put it into concrete? Unfortunately, these proteins found in nature don’t like to be removed from their natural environments. They unravel or disintegrate, like overcooked spaghetti. Concrete is also extremely basic, with a pH commonly over 12 or 12.5. This is not a friendly environment for most molecules, and these proteins were no exception. So Srubar and his graduate students used a synthetic molecule—polyvinyl alcohol, or PVA—that behaves exactly like these antifreeze proteins but is much more stable at a high pH, and combined it with another non-toxic, robust molecule—polyethylene glycol—often used in the pharmaceutical industry to prolong the circulation time of drugs in the body. This molecular combination of two polymers remained stable at a high pH and inhibited ice crystal growth. Increased stressors After water, concrete is the second most consumed material on Earth: two tons per person are manufactured each year. That’s a new New York City being built every 35 days for at least the next 32 years, according to Srubar. “Its manufacture, use and disposal have significant environmental consequences. The production of cement alone, the powder that we use to make concrete, is responsible for about 8 percent of our global CO2 emissions.” In order to meet Paris Agreement goals and keep global temperature increase well below 3.6 degrees Fahrenheit, the construction industry must decrease emissions by 40 percent by 2030 and eliminate them altogether by 2050. Climate change itself will only exacerbate stressors on concrete and aging infrastructure, with increased extreme temperatures and freeze and thaw cycles occurring more often in some geographic locations. “The infrastructure which is designed today will be facing different climatic conditions in the future. In the coming decades, materials will be tested in a way they’ve never been before,” said Srubar. “So the concrete that we do make needs to last.” Additional authors of this publication include Shane Frazier, Anastasia Aday and Elizabeth Delesky in the Materials Science and Engineering Program; and Mohammad Matar and Jorge Osio-Norgaard in Civil, Environmental, and Architectural Engineering at CU Boulder. Learn more about Srubar’s work from the College of Engineering and Applied Science’s podcast, OnCue​.

Rev Ronald Thwaites, is urging communities to ensure that schools and their equipment are protected, so they can serve for generations.The Minister  made the call today (March 11), while speaking at a handing over ceremony for seven Corporate Area schools that were upgraded by the Jamaica Social Investment Fund (JSIF), at a cost of over $24 million.The event was held at the Central Branch All Age School, in Kingston. Assistance was also provided under the joint Government of Jamaica/European Union (EU) Poverty Reduction Programme, through its schools equipping and fencing project,  which involved the construction of five play areas, complete with perimeter fencing; provision of play equipment, as well as furniture for the classrooms.“These are things that Government (alone) would not have been able to provide in that number, or as promptly as they have been provided for you. We must recognize what is being given to us, and we must take care of them.
