Bay Area Earthquake Destroys 70 Buildings In Napa

September 2, 2014   

This photo was sent to us by Joy Dionisio Mendoza via Facebook who said,

Among the red-tagged buildings is the Napa Senior Center, which is closed until further notice, city officials said. The city’s Community Services building and some other city facilities have been yellow-tagged. Several streets throughout the city, including in the downtown area, remain closed as officials make the inspections to make sure that buildings in the area are not going to collapse. There were about 90 leaks to water lines from the quake and crews worked all night repaired eight, but much of the city remains without water and service is not expected to be fully restored until Wednesday or Thursday, Napa Public Works Director Jacques LaRochelle said.

The earthquake caught many people sound asleep, sending dressers, mirrors and pictures crashing down around them. Queen of the Valley Medical Center reports that 208 patients were treated in the aftermath of the quake. Hospital spokesperson Walt Mickens reported that 12 patients were admitted. Seven had orthopedic issues and five were treated for respiratory and cardiac conditions. One is still in the hospital in critical condition. The bulk of patients have been treated and released. Two triage tents that were set up were taken down later Sunday night and the hospital is getting back to normal operations. Mickens reports that a 13-year-old boy, who was identified as Nicholas Dillon, was brought in and stabilized before being airlifted to another hospital.

The teen was injured when pieces of a fireplace fell down on him and fractured his pelvis. He is now being treated at the University of California, Davis Medical Center and is recovering from surgery. Other serious injuries involved broken bones and other trauma. Mickens says the rest included “mostly lacerations, bumps and bruises” and those patients have been treated and released. Hospital staff said early Sunday evening that they were starting to see a slowdown in the number of patients seeking treatment for earthquake-related injuries.

Is Your Home Safe? Expert Tips To Prepare For And Recover From Disaster

August 29, 2014   

Rooter(R) Plumbing No one can be fully prepared for a natural disaster, but there are steps one can take to minimize damage. Napa, Calif. (PRWEB) August 25, 2014 Following the earthquake yesterday morning, thousands of homes and businesses are dealing with the aftermath of the natural disaster, including unsafe plumbing conditions. Mr. Rooter Plumbing offers tips to help protect your greatest investment, as well as things to look for following an earthquake that could save home and business owners money. No one can be fully prepared for a natural disaster, but there are steps one can take to minimize the damage caused by an earthquake. Steve Ferguson, owner of Mr. Rooter Plumbing of Oakland, suggests ensuring the homes water heater is secured via a seismic stabilizer. Not only does it keep your water heater from shaking and breaking loose from water and gas lines, but its a code violation in California if you dont have this done. In addition, Scott Rossmiller, owner of Mr. Rooter Plumbing of Marin County, suggests having an automatic gas shut-off valve attached to your gas line. If there is an earthquake, this will automatically shut off all gas to your home, minimizing the chance for a gas fire or worse. Many insurance companies are now requiring homeowners to have this valve installed prior to approving insurance applications. Finally, ensure all appliances have flexible connectors. This enables the appliance to shake and rock without busting a gas or water line, causing more damage to your home. You would be surprised at how many homes still have inflexible connections their furnace, oven, dishwasher, etc., stated Ferguson. This will inevitably lead to a broken gas or water line, resulting in major damage to your home and possibly your health. Paul Kitchen, co-owner of Mr. Rooter Plumbing of Sonoma County, also suggests these tips for inspecting your home following an earthquake: 1.Take a moment to turn off all gas and water in the home. Go out and check the meter to make sure it isnt moving. If the dial is turning, there could be an unseen break in the gas or water lines. Call a plumbing or utilities professional to inspect the home immediately. 2.If a sewage smell or slow draining fixtures are noticed, immediately call a plumber as there may be a break or breach in the underground mainline. 3.Prepare for disaster by knowing where the main water supply and gas supply shut-off valves are located. Should a gas leak or flooding occur, immediately turn your main supply off. About Mr.

Polycarbonate Market For Automotive, Electronics, Construction, Optical Media, Packaging: Global Industry Analysis, Size, Share, Growth, Trends And Forecast 2013 – 2019

August 27, 2014   

Polycarbonate, a thermoplastic polymer produced using BPA (Bisphenol A) and phosgene as the major feedstock. High tensile strength, high shatter resistance and high thermal stability than the traditional engineering plastics such as acrylic have been major factors driving demand for polycarbonate. Browse the full Polycarbonate Market Report: http://www.transparencymarketresearch.com/polycarbonate-market.html Polycarbonate helps in reducing the overall weight of the vehicle without compromising durability. Therefore increasing demand for light vehicles is expected to be a major factor driving demand for polycarbonate. In addition, easy sterilization and cleaning of polycarbonate have led to increase in demand for polycarbonate in packaging applications which is anticipated to be among the major factors driving demand for polycarbonate. Moreover, BPA is a derivative of crude oil; therefore volatile pricing of BPA has been restraining polycarbonate market growth. Furthermore, low scratch resistance of polycarbonate has also restrained polycarbonate market growth mainly in the automotive segment. Developing low cost scratch resistant polycarbonate is expected to offer huge growth opportunities in the market. The demand for polycarbonate can be segregated into six major application segments: automotive, electronics, construction, optical media, packaging and others. Electronics, followed by automotives, are the dominant application segments for polycarbonate. The other application segment includes niche applications such as medical implants and tableware, among others. Browse Press Release of Polycarbonate Market: http://www.transparencymarketresearch.com/pressrelease/polycarbonate-market.htm Asia Pacific dominates the global demand for polycarbonate. Owing to high GDP growth in the emerging economies of India and China, Asia Pacific is anticipated to be the fastest growing region during the forecast period. Europe is another major regional segment in the demand side of the polycarbonate market.

Retire In Style At A Continuing Care Retirement Community – Nasdaq.com

August 24, 2014   

“Afterward, his memory wasn’t as good, and he just didn’t have the confidence that he used to have,” says Pat. “We realized that we were okay now, but the situation could change very quickly.” Both of their mothers suffered from dementia at the end of their lives. “We didn’t want our kids to worry about taking care of us,” she says. The Cooks began shopping for a continuing care retirement community. Such communities, known as CCRCs, provide independent living, assisted living, skilled nursing and memory care (or just independent living and skilled nursing) on the same campus, typically in exchange for a sizable up-front fee. The idea is that residents will have a place to live for the rest of their lives, with access to care as they need it. CCRCs are generally limited to people age 62 and older; the average age of entry is 80. Most people leave their homes only when they need assisted living, says Andrew Carle, executive-in-residence and founder of the Program in Senior Housing Administration at George Mason University, in Fairfax, Va. To entice residents who might otherwise stay at home, CCRCs offer country-club amenities, including posh dining rooms, fitness facilities and plenty of activities. They also offer safety backups, such as monitoring systems that let security guards know whether a resident has fallen or is otherwise unable to move around the apartment. In their 30 years of existence, CCRCs have largely been built, says Carle, “on golf courses and mountaintops in the middle of nowhere.” Lately, however, CCRCs are expanding to attract niche or affinity groups, and they have greater involvement in the community. CCRCs may now be university-based, focused on the arts, or geared toward the lesbian-gay-transgender population. During the recession, demand for entrance to CCRCs fell as people had trouble selling their homes and freeing up equity to pay the entrance fee. But with increased consumer confidence and improvements in the housing market, demand has begun to rise again, says Beth Burnham Mace, chief economist of the National Investment Center for the Seniors Housing and Care Industry, in Annapolis, Md. Conducting the search In researching their next move, the Cooks looked at CCRCs down one coast of Florida and up the other. “We wanted to see all our options,” says Pat. They were tempted by a CCRC located close to the beach on Amelia Island, one of the Sea Islands stretching from South Carolina to Florida. Ultimately, however, they chose The Marshes at Skidaway Island, just a couple of miles from The Landings. “If we had moved, we would have had to reestablish everything. But here we already have friends, doctors and our lawyer,” says Arne.

After all, I am paying good money to have the opportunity to use their fitness equipment when I want. When it doesnt work, it disrupts my entire schedule. This forces me to either wait for the equipment that is working to free up or cancel my workout all together. Both options cost me time and lower my opinion of the facility as a whole. Why Fitness Equipment Fails When electronic gym equipment stops working, the majority of the time it can be traced back to a very simple cause.

First: Pour about 1/4 to 1/3 cup rice into your spice grinder (or coffee grinder), then grind it for about a minute, until it looks like dust. The rice bits will both dislodge residual spices and absorb their fragrant oils, eliminating all traces of flavor. Dump out the rice-sand, and then wipe out the remaining rice-dust with a clean, damp cloth.

Remove the racks and anything else (e.g. the spray arm) blocking your access to the stains. Scrub away the stains inside the dishwasher with cleaning vinegar and water, or dish soap, and a sponge or brush. Be sure to clean the drain grating well, since debris often gets caught here. Make sure you check all the small holes as well. Clean the racks and other accessories with the same solution you used in step 2. It may be easier to clean the racks in the bathtub than in the sink, because theyre so large. Clean the rubber seal of your dishwasher with a solution of three cups hot water to half a cup of cleaning vinegar. This is important because the seal can catch food or get mouldy.
