Safe Summer Biking

first_img* Wear the helmet flat on your head, not tilted back at an angle. Don Bower, a human development specialist with the University of Georgia ExtensionService, urges families to talk about how to bike safely. You can’t beat a summer day, a bike and a cool bottle of water. But too many bikersleave safety plans behind. The result is about 900 bicycle-related deaths and anotherhalf a million injuries treated in U.S. hospital emergency rooms every year. Your safety job isn’t over once you strap the helmet on. “The most important thing is to wear a helmet,” Bower said. “Using bicycle helmetsproperly can reduce head injuries by up to 85 percent.” * Get a helmet that fits snugly and doesn’t block your view. Bower said the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission suggests these bicyclehelmet safety tips: “Bikes can be fun and good exercise,” Bower said, “but only when you remember yourresponsibility as a safe rider.” “See and be seen,” Bower said. “Wear bright fluorescent colors during the day.Flashing rear lights help drivers see you. If you must ride at night, equip your bikewith a headlight and taillight, and wear reflective clothing.” * Make sure your helmet meets standards. Check the label. * Don’t use a helmet after it has been involved in an accident. It could be cracked.Destroy the helmet, get a new one or ask the manufacturer to inspect it to see if itneeds to be replaced. * Always wear the helmet with the chin strap firmly buckled. The strap should fitsecurely and stay fastened. No matter how hard you twist or pull, the helmet shouldstay on your head, and the strap should stay buckled and secure. Remember the rules of the road. Ride with the traffic, not against it. Be aware oftraffic around you. Obey traffic laws. Check your brakes, tires, gears and headlightregularly.last_img read more

Governor Wolf Announces Funding for Energy Efficiency and Facility Upgrades at Riverside School District

first_img August 10, 2018 Governor Wolf Announces Funding for Energy Efficiency and Facility Upgrades at Riverside School District Education,  Efficiency,  Energy,  Infrastructure,  Innovation,  Press Release,  Schools That Teach Harrisburg, PA – Today, Governor Tom Wolf announced new funding for the Riverside School District in Lackawanna County for significant energy efficiency and facility upgrades to several buildings within the district.“Investing in our schools to provide a good education for our children in safe and secure classrooms is one of my top priorities,” said Governor Wolf. “This project will help the Riverside School District to make safety improvements, while expanding the use of energy efficient equipment that will help to reduce costs to taxpayers.”Riverside School District was approved for a $500,000 grant for lighting upgrades, building envelope improvements, and HVAC improvements at the elementary school. Additionally, a new front entrance will be designed and built for the high school and new energy-efficient lights will be added at the all-purpose football field to improve lighting conditions.“The approval of this grant by Governor Wolf comes at a great time for Riverside School District officials who will be able to leverage the money for long-term cost savings through overall facility improvements,” said state Rep. Sid Michaels Kavulich, D-Lackawanna. “This will benefit students, teachers and most importantly local taxpayers.”In addition to lowering energy consumption and costs to Riverside School District taxpayers, the project will also address safety concerns with improved lighting fixtures and sidewalks at school facilities.Supported through the Redevelopment Assistance Capital Program (RACP) program, funding will support critical expansion projects, some of which will provide opportunities for additional economic development.center_img SHARE Email Facebook Twitterlast_img read more

Golar Power to Provide FSRU for Brazilian LNG Terminal

first_imgBermuda-registered company Golar Power will be providing a floating storage regasification unit (FSRU) for a new LNG terminal at the Port of Vila do Conde, in Barcarena, Brazil.The terminal will be wholly operated by Golar Power, a 50/50 joint venture between Golar LNG and Stonepeak Infrastructure Partners.Located in a strategic entry point in the North region of Brazil, the LNG terminal is expected to start operations by mid-2021.It will be used as a hub to allow the distribution of LNG and supply of natural gas for electricity generation, commercial and industrial customers, transportation and bunkering before a 605MW LNG-to-power project in Barcarena, which will also be delivered by Golar Power, starts operations.The company said FSRU selection and detailing of the terminal were under way with an anticipated FID in the first half of 2020.“The energy hub that will be introduced by Golar Power in the State of Pará has the potential to supply an area larger than Western Europe, with millions of kilometers of river navigation routes,” Eduardo Antonello, Golar Power CEO, commented.“Considering the environmental and social benefits, our project has the potential to displace very large volumes of diesel, coal, LPG and heavy fuel oil (HFO) consumption with cheaper LNG, allowing significant reduction of greenhouse gas emissions and creating unique technical and economic development opportunities for the local populations.”This is the company’s second LNG-to-power project in Brazil. In 2016, Golar Power secured a 25-year FSRU charter for the Porto de Sergipe Project.The announcement of a new FSRU delivery agreement follows Golar LNG’s decision to spin off its LNG shipping business with the aim of focusing the company’s core business on LNG infrastructure. Golar LNG earlier said it was in discussions with Golar Power to exchange one of their LNG carriers for the FSRU Golar Tundra.Should the joint structure proceed as planned, the company’s direct exposure to the carrier market would then be limited to one modern steam turbine vessel, Golar Arctic, with Golar Viking contracted to be sold in 2020 post FSRU conversion.The spin-off is expected to be completed by the end of 2019.last_img read more
