Republic garbage truck smashes into front of Prairie Village home, seriously injuring driver

first_imgPolice say they have not determined what caused a Republic Services garbage truck to lose control before it smashed into a Prairie Village home Wednesday morning, seriously injuring the driver.Two residents were at the house when the accident occurred around 11:15 a.m., with a homeowner and a contractor working in the neighborhood coming quickly to the drivers’ aid until emergency responders arrived.The truck drove through the yard of the home at 83rd Terrace and Cedar, slamming into its southwest corner and seriously damaging two bedrooms. The crash also led to a severed gas pipe, which caused explosion concerns and brought firefighters and utility crews to the scene.Once the gas leak had been mitigated, crews began working to remove the truck from the home. A tow truck’s winch hooked to the back of the Republic vehicle and slowly pulled it back from the home. As it began to move, a thick wooden beam that had smashed through the windshield garbage truck gradually emerged from the truck’s cab: Tow truck pulling garbage hauler off PV housePosted by Shawnee Mission Post on Wednesday, February 28, 2018Prairie Village police say they are still investigating the incident.“We are unable to ascertain any information from the driver as he is still unconscious,” said Capt.

Tweet Sharecenter_img Officials of the Ministry of Agriculture, Forestry, Wildlife & Parks Division, famers and other stakeholders in the agriculture sector gathered at the La Flamboyant Hotel in Roseau on Tuesday, January 22, 2014 for the second in a series of consultationsDominica’s goal to complete an agriculture policy that will set out the strategic objectives of the sector for the period 2014 – 2018 by April 2014 is progressing.Officials from the Ministry of Agriculture, Forestry, Wildlife & Parks Division, farmers and other stakeholders in the agriculture sector gathered at the La Flamboyant Hotel in Roseau on Tuesday, January 22, 2014 for the second in a series of consultations. This consultation follows the first which was held on January 14, 2014 at the Fort Young Hotel in Roseau. The purpose of this second consultation, permanent secretary in the Ministry of Agriculture & Forestry, Eisenhower Douglas said is to build on the foundation laid down on January 14.Douglas noted that the Ministry relies on the feedback of the participants some of whom are directly involved in the agriculture sector on a daily basis.“Our role is to ensure that the enabling environment for the agricultural development and so on, is in keeping with what is required for the unique circumstances of Dominica being a small island developing state”.He stated that when embarking on a program like this, it is critical to first identify and be clear as to what the problem is with respect to production, income, employment, earnings and risks.“You must be able to identify what the problem is… you need to be clear on the problem because essentially the policy must respond to the problem,” Douglas said. When this has been identified, a diagnosis to the problem and prescription to manage the problem must also be found.“We’re allowing that sort of dialogue with you so that you can give us feedback as to whether our analysis, our assessment is in keeping with your understanding of the problem,” Douglas explained.He added that after the policy has been formulated, it must be implemented and monitored.“Monitoring and evaluation is critical to know if what you formulated is in fact consistent with what is being implemented”.This is necessary to determine “where you may be going off track or where you may need some tweaking and in fact new situations may emerge when you are implementing that may require from time to time that you to re-look at the policy to ensure it is relevant, it is consistent”.Douglas recommended that when the annual budget is being compiled that the agriculture policy is reviewed “to see if it is in keeping with our original assumptions, our original assessments of the situation”.“We’re relying on you to help us in that initiative, at the end of the day it’s a policy for Dominica and all of us patriot citizens this is our home so what we do will affect all of us ultimately”.The goal is that at the end of the series of consultations, the stakeholders would have assisted the Ministry of Agriculture in compiling a draft policy which will be finalized for Cabinet’s approval.The Ministry is hoping to complete this process before Easter so that the new policy can take effect in the new fiscal year which commences on July 1, 2014.Dominica Vibes News LocalNews Formulation of agriculture policy for Dominica progresses by: – January 22, 2014 38 Views   no discussionslast_img read more

DD Motoring: All eyes turn to the Galway International Rally

first_imgIn a preview special of this weekend’s Galway International Rally, Brian McDaid takes a look through an all-star cast of Donegal competitors lead by Declan and Brian Boyle as they prepare to compete on what’s looking like the best Galway Rally in YearsWhen you live and travel along the western coast of Ireland you soon get to know the way trends work with towns and villages closing down. The names left still above shop doors that have long been vacated. Advertisement That’s the way it looked two years ago when we watched the 2017 Galway Rally that just got running and no more that year. It felt the writing was on them famous Galway’s stone walls and the Galway International Rally was going to be only a memory.That winning feeling… Declan and Brian Boyle celebrate on the finishing ramp at the Mt Errigal Hotel as they win the Donegal International a few years back. They will lead the Donegal Crews out on Sunday Morning for Galway International in their Ford Fiesta R5. Photo Brian McDaidThe then Galway Motor Club went back to the drawing board and cut their cloth to suit the needs of the present day competitor and have returned with what looks like a winning package.In a class of his ownThere was only one R class of note running around the West of Ireland last year with the Galway Rally off the road, that was Pope Frances in his Skoda Rapid, as he flew into Knock International Airport and travelled in style for 20km up the road in the modern Skoda on his visit to Knock Shrine. Advertisement One year on and there is an abundance of R5 class Rally cars in the West with the Galway International returning in style. Twenty-five and counting R5’s in top 30 lining up for the 2019 rally start this weekend.CurleyCurley messaged me this week: “Hi Brian, are you for the Galway Rally on Sunday? “I will be, hopefully, sir.,” I replied.“Good On U, I might see you down there over the weekend,” Curley said.Our Curley, not to be mistaking for Curley as in Cathal CB Curley, who also has a Galway connection as he was the first winner of the Galway International Rally in 1971 in a twin cam Escort Mk1 with Austin Frazer co-driving.Our “Curley” is also locally known as Curley Kelly, (Martin) a big rally man with his brother Anthony. Both of them were in my class in the boys school in the early 70s when the other Curley was making himself a household name in rallying circles, and come the weekend we will all be in Galway for the rally.Back to schoolThe 2019 Galway International Rally will have a bit of a back to school ring to it this weekend.All the old familiar names like Kelly and Boyle and even Breen will be in the new R5 class. Declan Boyle’s Fiesta R5 ready for Galway this weekend with Brian Boyle back on the notes.The teacher even moved Manus Kelly over to the passengers’ side of his desk and gave him a steering wheel on the left with Barrett calling the notes from the driver’s side of their Hyundai.Sunday SchoolThe learning curve will be tight on Sunday morning as event organisers have concentrated the event into a single day.Those like the two Moffetts from Monaghan Josh and Sam have their homework done over the last few seasons in class R5, so expect them to be very quick out of the box on Sunday morning.Their biggest challenge will be from the top of the class when world rally material of Craig Breen and Paul Nagle are seeded at Number One.Former works Citroen driver and also a winner of the Circuit of Ireland in 2015 Breen will be the man to watch on the Irish championship opener of the Galway a winter equivalent of the Monte Carlo Rally.Galway is a winter rally and anything can happen when the weather or road conditions change so quickly.The top crews to factor this into their preparation to do well this weekend.

The Bleeding Edge of Medicine

first_imgApplication of this advanced technology to healthcare has profound implications for society, promising to transform the practice of medicine from observation driven to understanding driven. However, lack of definitive models, processes and standards has limited its application, and development has remained fragmented in research organizations around the world.Heart simulation invaluableIn January of 2014, Dassault Systèmes took the first step to change this and launched the “Living Heart Project” as a translational initiative to partner with cardiologists, researchers, and device manufacturers to develop a definitive realistic simulation of the human heart. Through this accelerated approach, the first commercial model-centric, application-agnostic, multi-physical whole heart simulation has been produced.Since cardiovascular disease is the number one cause of morbidity and mortality across the globe, Dassault Systèmes saw the Living Heart Project as the best way to address the problem. Although there is a plethora of medical devices, drugs, and interventions, physicians face the problem of determining which device, drug, or intervention to use on which patient. Often times to truly understand what is going on inside a patient invasive procedures are needed.CAE and the Living Heart Project will enable cardiologists to take an image (MRI, CT, etc) of a patient’s heart and reconstruct it on a 3D model thereby creating a much more personalized form of healthcare. The doctor can see exactly what is happening in the patient’s heart and definitively make a more informed decision of how to treat that patient most effectively.What questions do you have about computer aided engineering?Karl D’Souza is a senior user experience specialist at Dassault Systèmes Simulia Corp. Computer Aided Engineering (CAE) has become pervasive in the design and manufacture of everything from jumbo jets to razor blades, transforming the product development process to produce more efficient, cost effective, safe and easy to use products. A central component of CAE is the ability to realistically simulate the physical behavior of a product in real world scenarios, which greatly facilitates understanding and innovation.last_img read more
