YPE html PUBLIC “-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN” “http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-transitional.dtd”> A unique learning opportunity will be coming to Lamar Community College in early April.  The LCC rodeo team is sponsoring the goat tying clinic, with their own Ashten Marchant teaching. Marchant will help young rodeo students learn or expand their goat tying skills in a two-day skill-building clinic to be held on April 1-2 in the LCC Rodeo Arena. To ensure quality instruction and plenty of one-on-one time, the course is limited to twelve students.  Anyone interested in attending the clinic is encouraged to reserve their spot as soon as possible. Cost to attend is $150 with a $50 deposit due on March 17th. Dog Clippers “Ashten has plenty of experience to share,” commented LCC Head Coach Fred Sherwood.  “She qualified for the College National Finals last year and is doing well now.  We had the opportunity to host a clinic for younger girls in the area to learn goat tying and I’m sure she can help them a lot.” Including competing in the 2015 College National Finals Rodeo, Marchant was the 2013 Wyoming State Goat Tying Champion....

Special Request: Stacked’s applesauce is chunky, lightly caramelized | Food and cooking

Fuji and Gala apples combined within cinnamon and lemon juice creates a sweet and tart chunky applesauce at Stacked Burger Bar. Q • I would like to have the recipe for the chunky applesauce at Stacked Burger Bar. It’s the perfect lighter side when you don’t want fries or chips with your burger. It’s sweet and tart with a nice touch of cinnamon. — Jen Hinkl, Princeton Heights A • You don’t ordinarily find “applesauce” listed as a side dish in a great burger joint, but then, the applesauce at Stacked Burger Bar isn’t at all ordinary. Chunky, sweet, lightly caramelized, and tingly tart, this side dish holds its own against the brawny burgers at Stacked. “The flavor of the apples works well with our burgers, but especially with our pork offerings, and with our turkey burger as well,” chef and co-owner Laura Windisch (formerly Borghardt) says. The cooked apples provide a nice change of pace from sides of fries, chips and onion rings. Windisch uses this applesauce as a base for the Apple Pie Bites on the dessert menu. She also turns it into a savory apple butter she uses with pork and with turkey burgers, and she sometimes uses it as a base for a cobbler. It’s not unusual for this tal...

Summary: The most interesting books are the most provocative, challenging the beliefs of a society’s elites.

Summary: The most interesting books are the most provocative, challenging the beliefs of a society’s elites. Martin van Creveld has done so for decades, and time has repeatedly proven him to be correct. Here he challenges the belief that women should be front-line soldiers in America’s forces. Our military cannot win now. Will more women soldiers make it stronger? This book is important because it re-defines the military reform agenda. Previously, military reform has focused on the problems that have led to America’s repeated military defeats. The issues van Creveld raises in Pussycats suggests we are moving from an American military that can’t win to one that won’t even fight. The essence of Creveld’s argument is that we (both the U.S. and Western Europe) have de-militarized our military. The introduction of women is one of the factors, but not the only one, although if a military is to fight it must have an aggressively male culture. That is unacceptable not only to the women in the military but to a broadly womanized society and culture. It would not surprise our ancestors to hear that a womanized society can’t fight. But Creveld looks at influences well beyond womanization....

The Atlantic Ocean’s ‘Conveyor Belt’ Stirs Up a Science Fight

Researchers are debating the best way to monitor the ocean currents that sweep through the Labrador Sea—and may foretell the planet’s climate future. Smack dab between eastern Canada’s Misery Point and Greenland’s Cape Desolation is a place where the thrashing of the Atlantic Ocean’s churn sounds about as friendly as the nearby place names. This stretch of water, the Labrador Sea, has long been considered a critical junction in the global circulatory system of the world’s oceans. By pumping warm water north and cool water south, the system regulates the planet’s climate. For decades, scientists have turned to the Labrador Sea to understand how ocean processes there may be affecting the strength of a massive oceanic conveyor belt known as the Atlantic Meridional Overturning Circulation. Many researchers have found that the system is weak, which could spell trouble for changing climate conditions in the future. But data emerging from new suites of ocean-monitoring instruments suggests this narrative is headed for a twist. The idea of a faltering AMOC entered public consciousness years ago with the popular but exaggerated catastrophe flick The Day After Tomorrow. ...

NetComposites Ltd. is transferring the rights and ownership of its website content, email newsletters and conferences

NetComposites Ltd. is transferring the rights and ownership of its website content, email newsletters and conferences to Gardner, effective 1st January 2020. At K 2019 in October, Venator will launch a new titanium dioxide (TiO2) pigment to the global plastics industry.  TIOXIDE TR29 is Venator’s highest performing white pigment for low moisture applications and demanding processing conditions. Combining ultra-low moisture content, with excellent dispersion properties and a high packing fraction, TIOXIDE TR29 is designed for use in the manufacture of highly technical thin films, and in engineering polymers where moisture sensitivity is a consideration. Made using a carefully modified and controlled manufacturing process, TIOXIDE TR29 can be used to create masterbatches with a very high TiO2 loading, while maintaining a high throughput rate and a low specific energy requirement – which can potentially reduce production and transportation costs compared to multipurpose masterbatch grades.  In the manufacture of technical multi-layer films, the low moisture content of TIOXIDE TR29 enables converters to produce thinner films with a reduced risk of lacing. This enables the manufactu...

Every August, we share all the coolest stuff in Baltimore—restaurants, shops, galleries, salons, and more—and it’s basically the highlight of our year. But here’s a little something you don’t know: We always leave some stuff out. Look, can you blame us? Some things have to be just for us—we can’t share everything. Or can we? This year, we’re opening the vaults and pulling out the deepest cuts. For the first time ever, we’re offering what we call “Hidden Gems”—namely our personal faves, the stuff we didn’t want to spoil with fame. We trust that you’ll treat these gems with the care and love they deserve.

Aluminium as a Conductor Material: A Lighter and More Economical Alternative

Choosing conductive metals for different industries and applications can be a challenge. Copper is often used in cables and wires because of its excellent conductivity and malleability. But it is relatively heavy and expensive compared to aluminum. Switching to aluminum, which is lighter and significantly less costly than copper, is a viable option in many cases. Using aluminum successfully is a matter of understanding the capabilities of this conductive metal and how to deal with the challenges it presents. Copper, at $4,323 per ton, is currently more than twice as expensive as aluminum, which costs $2,043 per ton (as of 02/02/15). The greater availability of raw aluminum compared to copper accounts for this significant difference in price. After oxygen and silicon, aluminum is the third most common element in the Earth’s upper crust, while copper is ranked 25th in availability on the list of raw materials. Assessment of current prices is further reinforced by the volatility of the raw materials market. If one looks at the numbers from the last five years (2010-2014), copper prices fluctuated within a range from $3,674 to $5,980 per ton. In 2004, the annual average value was st...

Rapid Detection and Differentiation of Clinically Relevant Candida Species Simultaneously from Blood Culture by Use of a Novel Signal Amplification Approach

Fungal bloodstream infections are a significant problem in the United States, with an attributable mortality rate of up to 40%. An early diagnosis to direct appropriate therapy has been shown to be critical to reduce mortality rates. Conventional phenotypic methods for fungal detection take several days, which is often too late to impact outcomes. Herein, we describe a cost-effective multiplex assay platform for the rapid detection and differentiation of major clinically relevant Candida species directly from blood culture. This approach utilizes a novel biotin-labeled polymer-mediated signal amplification process combined with targeting rRNA to exploit phylogenetic differences for sensitive and unambiguous species identification; this assay detects seven pathogenic Candida species (C. albicans, C. glabrata, C. parapsilosis, C. tropicalis, C. krusei, C. lusitaniae, and C. guilliermondii) simultaneously with very high specificity to the species level in less than 80 min with the limits of detection at 1 × 103 to 10 × 103 CFU/ml or as few as 50 CFU per assay. The performance of the described assay was verified with 67 clinical samples (including mixed multiple-species infections...

Facebook parenting groups: ‘Amid the milestones, the bump photos and the freshly painted nurseries, there was

Facebook parenting groups: ‘Amid the milestones, the bump photos and the freshly painted nurseries, there was also the unimaginable, terrible tenderness of stillbirths and angel babies.’ Photograph: iStock Before I had a child, one sentence used to madden me. “As I parent, I can fully empathise/relate/understand.” The subtext, of course, was that becoming a parent somehow sent you to a higher plane of emotional literacy, while us child-free types were simply unable to fully grasp the finer details of the human condition. Just because I couldn’t get a guy I liked to text me back, I reasoned, didn’t mean I couldn’t fully comprehend feelings of love, loss, vulnerability or protectiveness. I’ve been a parent for nearly a year and it’s changed me in so many ways. I hate to admit it, but it feels as though the softer parts of me have expanded and opened up. I’m less annoyed at shrieking kids in restaurants. I tear up watching charity adverts on TV. Psychologists would say that the act of supporting a completely helpless baby will drive the development of our psychological sensitivity to others needs. (On the other hand, McGill University researchers established that stress inhibits e...

Some of the largest gains in percentage terms came from medium-sized companies in the FDMC 300 list, but the largest companies also recorded stronger sales in 2017. Overall, sales for the FDMC 300 group of companies grew 5.4 percent in 2017 over the previous year to $52.209 billion.  This group of the 300 largest North American cabinet, millwork, furniture and fixture manufacturers recorded a sixth consecutive year of sales expansion in 2017. A year earlier, sales for the FDMC 300 group of companies grew 5 percent in 2016 to $48.786 billion. (We adjusted the 2017 figure to $51.409 billion to make the comparison with the previous year, since there were some large additions and subtractions in the list of companies.) According to the Kitchen Cabinet Manufacturers Association’s monthly Trend of Business Survey, participating cabinet manufacturers reported sales totaling $6.9 billion for 2017. Th...
