Task force drug sweep leads to at least 22 arrests around Wilkes-Barre

WILKES-BARRE — At least 22 people were taken into custody on Friday and Saturday during a joint task force sweep targeting suspected drug traffickers, city police said. A couple wanted on charges they eluded authorities and skipping court hearings were the last to be arrested in “Triggerlock Operation,” which was a collaboration between Wilkes-Barre police, state police, Luzerne County Sheriff’s Department, U.S. Marshals and the state offices of Attorney General and Fish and Boat Commission. Randall Paul Austin, 41, of Susquehanna, and his girlfriend, Erin Marie Stanley, 37, of Friendsville, were arrested when a search warrant was served at their motel room at the Host Inn on Kidder Street early Saturday morning when a large amount of methamphetamine, paraphernalia and cash were discovered, court records say. Court records say Austin is wanted in Susquehanna and Wyoming counties, and Stanley is wanted in Broome County, N.Y. Austin and Stanley were arraigned by District Judge Joseph Spagnuolo Jr. in Plains Township on various drug trafficking related charges and both were jailed at the county correctional facility without bail. Authorities fanned out armed with 21 search warrants...

Whether you’re looking for wiring, pipes, or just the usual stud, there’s a model here to

Whether you’re looking for wiring, pipes, or just the usual stud, there’s a model here to help you find it. A stud finder is good for, well, finding studs you can’t see. Knowing where those are is crucial so you can be sure to screw into them instead of just the drywall when you’re hanging something heavy, like a mirror or a mount for, say, a flat-screen TV. But some stud finders have other features, too, like deep scanning and AC wire detection. That doesn’t mean they always do what they’re supposed to. There’s a lot going on in walls, and it can be hard, despite advances in tech, for any device to parse it all and determine what’s a pipe and what’s a wire from outside of the wall. To test all the features, we put a selection of stud finders through their paces on a wall of our own making, as well as walls in existing homes. For our test, we built a four-by-eight-foot wall out of common materials: wood and metal studs; drywall; copper, black, pex, and PVC pipe; and nonmetallic sheathed cable. Then we scanned the wall with each of the stud finders. All functioned as expected when it came to detecting the studs, but we quickly found that a number of them designed to pick up the l...

Eugene man embarking on an Alaskan sea journey on his homemade kayak – Entertainment & Life – The Register-Guard

Paddling amid the gentle swells lapping between the Ketchikan Peninsula and various islands on Alaska’s southern coast, native Aleuts hunted from long, bone- and driftwood-constructed kayaks. The boats cut through the water like a sleek barracuda, sliding on the stretched seal skin covering of its structure. They called the craft a baidarka. It was so important, the Aleut considered the canoe to be a living thing. Peter Marquardt of Eugene has been dreaming of sailing the Alaskan coast — in his own baidarka — since high school more than 30 years ago. As a teenager, water provided an escape from the harrowing memory of childhood sexual abuse. After a physical altercation with his male guardian when Marquardt was 15, he and his mother fled to her native Germany in order to avoid further violence. Just two years later, Marquardt washed ashore in the refuge of the wet Northwest. In Seattle in 1986, the steel blue Puget Sound called. Marquardt took to sea as many a foolhardy teenager does, launching from Des Moines, Washington, paddling north along the coast with no plan and only the vague hope of making it as far as he could. Before he could even make it around the Olympic Peninsula...

Increasing Demand for Welding Cables to Fuel Revenue Growth Through 2029

Welding cable is the electrical conductor for the welding current. It is intended to power an electrode for use in arc-welding electric machines, a metal bar that conducts charge, also used in automotive battery and truck battery. The conductor has fine copper strands which give welding cable more flexibility than other types of electrical conductors. Rubber insulation and high strand count helps to increase the cable’s flexibility and made welding cable extremely flexible and durable. The welding cable capacity is impacted by cross sectional area, ohm rating, cable length, ambient temperature, and the temperature rating. The global welding cable market is expected to grow at a high rate owing to the higher technological growth and rapid industrialization going on in the developing countries such as China, India. However, the key factor restraining the growth of welding cables market are the cost of welding cable and threat of fire hazard. Globally, the welding cables market can be segmented on the basis of conductor size, coating, cable size, and application, etc. The metal fabrication and engineered products is considered to be the major end user of welding cables by volume. I...

BAE nets $2.7B for APKWS guidance units for rocket upgrades

Sept. 26 (UPI) — BAE Systems was awarded a $2.7 billion contract by the Navy for Advanced Precision Kill Weapon Systems II upgrades, pushing the program into full-rate production. The contract, announced Wednesday, will procure WGU-59/B units to upgrade the current 2.75-inch rocket system to a semi-active laser-guided precision that support Navy, Army and Air Force. The award also includes foreign military sales for the governments of Australia, Afghanistan, Iraq, Lebanon, Netherlands, Jordan, Philippines, Tunisia and United Kingdom. The APKWS guidance kit converts an otherwise unguided 2.75-inch rocket into a weapon with semi-active laser-guided precision. The rocket is capable of being fired from more than 20 different fixed- and rotary-wing platforms. These platforms include the widely used AH-64D/E Apache, AH-1W/Z Super Cobra and Viper, and UH-60L/M Black Hawk helicopters, as well as the F-16 Fighting Falcon, A-10 Thunderbolt and AV-8B Harrier aircraft. In February, BAE won a previous contract for $225 million to provide the same APKWS upgrades for the Defense Department. Air Sealed Slide Work on the new contract will be performed in New Hampshire and Texas, and is ex...

Surfaces 2018 Review: At this year’s show, branding and marketing shared center stage

This year’s show, held in Las Vegas from January 30 to February 1, was busy, colorful and enthusiastic. Attendee traffic was strong, exhibitor bookings were up 5% and manufacturers put their best foot forward, investing not just in product but also in new brands, booth design, unique merchandising units and dramatic displays on booth floors and walls. The massive L-shaped 450,000-square-foot exhibit space-featuring Surfaces, TileExpo and StonExpo/Marmomac under the umbrella of TISE (The International Surface Event)-was so crammed with people and product that a shortcut across the outside parking lot turned into a pedestrian highway. It didn’t help that the middle third of the exhibit hall was focused on stone processing machinery, essentially cutting the flooring show in two. The Las Vegas Market, showing product including area rugs at the World Market Center at the other end of the Strip, ran more or less concurrently with Surfaces. For the first two days of Surfaces, shuttles, free with a TISE badge, ferried attendees between the shows. But many attendees reported that they just didn’t have enough time to travel across town. The downside for Surfaces is that there’s not much t...

Industrial 3D printers are systems that are used for manufacturing. These systems are generally costly and

Industrial 3D printers are systems that are used for manufacturing. These systems are generally costly and offer high throughput and yield. They often require a lot of ancillary equipment, training, and space to operate. Generally most users will have desktop 3D printers while only a few will turn to industrial systems. There is no best 3D printer. There are many different models and technologies of printers and each has their own advantages. Depending on your situation, throughput and yield several systems could work well for you. Depending on the part quality and part size one printer may be overkill while another may not be what you need. The purpose of this document is, therefore, to show you a number of options that you can consider when buying an industrial 3D printing system. The printers listed have track records that are positive and I’ve received positive comments on these systems through interviews and research. People I know have told me that these systems are worthwhile and that they would recommend them and buy (or lease) more of them should they need more capacity. This list is not exhaustive but it should be a good starting point for someone orienting themselves ...

Curious About Eyelash Extensions? Here’s What You Should Know

Can I let you in on a secret, just between you and me? I’ve worn eyelash extensions continuously for about two years now. They make me feel like a Disney princess whose pure and gentle spirit has enticed delicate, mascara-free butterflies to live on my face. Amid my otherwise low-maintenance makeup routine, lash extensions are like a cosmetic cheat code: Whether I’ve just woken up, exercised for an hour, gone for a swim or lived through a harrowing 24-hour stomach flu, I’m unfailingly delighted by the way my eyes pop, and by how quickly I can get ready. When it comes to, say, applying eyeliner, I have the fine motor skills of a ventriloquist’s dummy, but there is no daily effort required on my part for lash extensions work their fluttery magic. For the uninitiated but curious, I asked the owners of four eyelash-extension salons (and one ophthalmologist) about what to expect when you’re extending. Unlike temporary false lashes, eyelash extensions are neither a D.I.Y. affair nor a fleeting commitment. They are professionally applied, one on each natural lash, with a semi-permanent glue meant to hold them in place for several weeks. Extensions bewitch your lashes with the length an...

A standout solution at this year’s ISE was K-array’s Rail, a product that combines audio and lighting. Rail is a 1.2m line of warm, homogeneous linear LED lights that houses full-range cone drivers. Several combinations are available to cover a wide range of applications. All Rail options are available in black or white and include three 5-inch glass fibre audio transducers designed for maximum excursion. The inclusion of full-range speakers negates the need for subwoofers. Up to 12 Rail units can be driven by a single channel of the manufacturer’s four-channel Kommander-KA02 amplifier, meaning that one amp can power 48 Rails. Once powered up, Rail offers plug-and-play capability and Bluetooth connectivity, as well as USB ports and a mini-jack input. If more powerful sound is needed, Rails can be combined with K-array’s larger Kommander amp and paired with its subwoofer families. Rail models are driven at 24V. Versions are also available with DALI included, allowing for individual management of each unit for functionality such as light dimming. Multiple mounting options and dedicated accessories are also available for Rail. The Pendant model is when Rail is surface-m...
