Fishing the North Coast: Salmon season opens Friday

first_imgIt’s been a long wait, but the time is finally here. After suffering through a complete shutdown of our salmon season in 2017, beginning Friday morning sport salmon anglers will once again set their sights on ocean kings. I’m not sure whether it’s the year-long hiatus or the fact that nearly 360,000 adult Klamath kings are said to be swimming off our coast – but there’s a buzz around town like I’ve never heard. It’s all anyone wants to talk about. Standing in the checkout line at the …last_img read more

This article is only available to GBA Prime Members OAK RIDGE, TENN., April 1 — According to Andrei Constantinescu, a senior researcher at Oak Ridge National Laboratory, it won’t be long before new American homes no longer require central heating. “Every year, the heat produced by electronic gadgets is increasing,” explained Constantinescu. “By 2014, most new American homes won’t need a furnace.”As televisions get larger, their heat output increases. “Four plasma TVs can heat a house in Kentucky,” said Constantinescu. “If you throw in a set-top box and two or three computers, you should be fine as far north as Maine.”Data from the Energy Information Administration confirm that the average heat output of electronic gadgets has been rising for years. “It’s only a matter of time before furnace manufacturers have to close their doors,” Constantinescu predicted. Carrier Corporation has already announced plans to move its corporate headquarters from Farmington, Conn., to Fairbanks, Alaska, where the demand for residential furnaces may last until 2018.According to Julie Flack, media coordinator for the American Association of Electronic Gadget Manufacturers (AAEGM), heating a home with plasma TVs makes a lot of sense. “When you go to bed, it’s important to leave all of your TVs on,” Flack advised. “Especially on cold winter nights.”The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) has been closely monitoring the heating-with-your-television trend. “Beginning in 2016, television labels will be required to include heat output in BTUH,” said DOE spokesperson Christine Keely. “The new labels will be a boon to consumers. If your home has a design heat loss of 30,000 BTUH, and you’re shopping for three new TVs, just be sure that each TV has a minimum heat output of 10,000 BTUH.”Editor’s note: This news story has been published a day ahead of Holladay’s usual Friday blog posting in order to meet the April 1st press… center_img Start Free Trial Already a member?

In Mathura, Narendra Modi launches programme to vaccinate 500 million livestock

first_imgAsking people to shun single use plastic, Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Wednesday said the wanton use of plastic posed a hazard to the environment and had led to livestock and fish being killed. Mr. Modi was addressing a gathering in Mathura after joining women in segregating plastic from waste at a ‘Swachhta Hi Seva’ programme. The Prime Minister sat on the floor with women who pick plastic from garbage and helped them sift through the waste. Mr. Modi, who is on a day’s visit to this Uttar Pradesh town, also launched the National Animal Disease Control Programme (NADCP) for eradicating foot and mouth disease (FMD) and brucellosis in livestock. With 100 per cent funding from the Central government till 2024, the ₹12,652 crore NADCP programme aims at vaccinating over 500 million livestock, including cattle, sheep, goats and pigs, against FMD. The programme has targeted vaccinating 36 million female bovine calves annually in its fight against brucellosis disease, a bacterial infection transmitted from animals to humans. The programme has two components — controlling the diseases by 2025 and eradication by 2030. During his visit, Mr. Modi interacted with farmers and also launched the National Artificial Insemination Programme. As part of the “Swachhta Hi Seva” programme, the prime minister met 25 garbage workers. The women wore masks and a glove and responded to Modi’s questions on garbage generated from households and the amount of plastic in them. The women were honoured for their work. Addressing the COP (Conference of Parties) to United Nations Convention to Combat Desertification (UNCCD) at Greater Noida two days ago, the prime minister spoke of India’s resolve to end single use plastic and urged other nations to embrace the cause as well. “My government has announced that India would put an end to single use plastics in the coming years. We are committed to the development of environment-friendly substitutes and also an efficient plastic collection and disposal method,” Mr. Modi said. The government has pledged to eliminate single use plastic by 2022. As part of the effort, the government is likely to put out descriptors of what constitutes single use plastic.last_img read more

Dola Banerjee lends helping hand to Indian archers

first_imgShe is one of the best archers India has produced and the current Indian team looks up to her, and Dola Banerjee is also doing her bit to help the country win its first Olympic medal in the sport.Dola, who was part of the gold medal winning team at the 2010 Delhi Commonwealth Games, and the archers training at the Sports Authority of India (SAI) Eastern Centre waste no opportunity in benefiting from the expertise and experience of the two-time Olympian.She is not part of the team going to London, but one would never know that by the way she interacts with the other archers at the camp.It helps that Deepika Kumari and Bombayla Devi have been on the same team with her, while the men’s team going to the London Olympics includes her brother, Rahul Banerjee.”Both the teams are very good and capable of winning medals, though one cannot put a number. I could not get an Olympic medal, but if the current lot can be successful I will be very proud,” Dola told Mail Today. “I also train here and try to help them in whatever way I can.”Bombayla and Tarundeep (Rai) have prior Olympic experience, but also the others are very confident. If they score like the way they are doing now, they will definitely be in the medal contention, though in archery a lot depends on one’s performance on the day.”One aspect in which Dola can help the first-time Olympians, such as Deepika Kumari, is in dealing with the pressure they will face in London.advertisement”They have competed at various world cups, world championships, Asiad and Commonwealth Games. But the huge crowds, noise and pressure are at a different level,” she said.last_img read more
