Holmen author features iconic La Crosse locations in newest novel | Local

It is her colorful group of eight female cousins, adored aunts and wise mom that inspired the Holmen author’s newest novel, “Close Quarters,” the first in a planned series of four tomes. Centered on cousins Kelly, Lindsay, Mia and Harper, an amalgamation of Zieba’s own kin, the story follows the women’s founding of a bookstore in honor of their late grandmother, an “infamous Midwestern literary critic.” The cousins, each with vastly different personalities, quirks and lifestyles, find themselves struggling after the death of their beloved matriarch and face plenty of obstacles, both personal and work related, as they build their business. From an unexpected pregnancy to a influx of mysterious parcels arriving at the bookstore, the book touches on what Zieba calls “the tribulations of being a woman in today’s high-expectation world, the complexities of close-knit families and the power of friendship.” “I think that being a woman in today’s world is tough,” Zieba says. “There are so many things to balance and this story speaks to that, as well as the benefit of having a strong support system to help you on the days you can’t do it alone.” Zieba, who keeps in touch with her cousin...

Casting super strong metals with grain sizes down to nanometers during slow cooling. The study was

Casting super strong metals with grain sizes down to nanometers during slow cooling. The study was published in Science Advances For several years, Professor Xiaochun Li has been incorporating dense nanoparticles to make materials stronger and tougher – for example lightweight aluminum alloys and more recently, glass and ceramics. But those enhancing qualities take effect when the material is in its final form. Li started to wonder, “what if nanoparticles could help make super strong metals, during the actual formation?” That is during casting, when they solidify from a hot molten liquid in a mold. That could be a major breakthrough in the casting of metals, a process that is thousands of years old. At the atomic level, atoms of metals group together to form crystal lattices. Those lattices then form units are known as crystalline “grains.” “A grain is kind of like a little family of atoms that are ordered in lattice structure,” Li said. “Metals in their solid form are made up of these many families – each grain has its atomic lattice oriented in one direction, while its neighbors will be ordered in other directions.” “The smaller the grain sizes, the stronger a metal gets,” Li...

DHS Officially Announces ISSI/CSSI Testing Under P25 CAP Program

The U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) announced the Project 25 (P25) Compliance Assessment Program (CAP) added Inter-RF Subsystem Interface and Console Subsystem Interface (ISSI/CSSI) equipment. The expansion allows P25 ISSI/CSSI equipment to be tested for interoperability by accredited laboratories. DHS Science and Technology Directorate’s (S&T) is working to accredit laboratories to conduct the testing. The American Association for Laboratory Accreditation (A2LA) and ANSI National Accreditation Board (ANAB) — both DHS-recognized accreditation bodies that provide onsite assessment of testing laboratories as part of P25 CAP — are now ready to accredit testing laboratories for ISSI/CSSI Interoperability testing. Once the laboratories are accredited by their respective accreditation body, they will be able to test manufacturers’ ISSI and CSSI equipment to P25 CAP’s interoperability requirements. S&T published compliance assessment bulletins (CABs) outlining testing requirements for two types of testing — ISSI/CSSI interoperability and ISSI/CSSI conformance — earlier this year. This next step of accrediting laboratories for ISSI/CSSI interoperability testing brings...

Save to read list Published by Lucy Stewardson, Editorial Assistant World Cement, Tuesday, 05 February 2019 09:45 Every bulk material handler has a vested interest in technologies that help to reduce hazards and prevent injuries, given the number of conveyor-related accidents that occur during routine maintenance and cleanup. Seemingly mundane tasks, such as adjusting belt cleaners and removing spillage often require employees to work in close proximity to the moving conveyor, where even accidental contact can result in serious injury in a split second. Spillage can also contribute to the risk of fire by interfering with pulleys and idlers, and by providing potential fuel. Even worse, in confined spaces, airborne particles can create the right ingredients for an explosion. The buildup of fugitive material can occur with surprising speed. An amount equal to just 4 g/hour (the equivalent of just one packet of sugar) results in the accumulation of about 700 g at the end of the week. With an escape rate of 4 g/min., the accumulation will b...

The federal monitor overseeing the New York City Housing Authority will be paid $12 million for

The federal monitor overseeing the New York City Housing Authority will be paid $12 million for its first year of service, according to its contract with the city, which was publicly released Tuesday. The deal with monitor Bart Schwartz and his firm Guidepost Solutions will run five years, with its term having begun in February 2019. Included in the $12 million price tag are outside subcontractors. Under the contract, Schwartz will get $594 an hour, with his pay capped at $350,000 in 2019 only. Executive officers of his firm will be paid $503 an hour and members of the project leadership team will be paid an hourly rate of between $366 and $480. Monitor spokesman Montieth Illingworth described the rate of pay for monitor employees as “deeply discounted.” “Bart Schwartz’s effective hourly rate will likely be significantly less because his total fee is a fixed amount and he has and continues to devote significant time to the monitorship,” he said. “All the monitorship rates are discounted.” The city agreed to the monitor after NYCHA was rocked by a series of scandals, including its failure to properly test for poisonous lead in apartments and lying to the federal government about...

Seafood wins from China trade deal upgrade, but dairy will have to wait

Companies selling fresh, perishable goods, like seafood into China will now have goods expedited through customs clearance in six hours. This will mean the release of goods outside normal business hours and ensuring goods are stored properly. The existing free trade agreement was upgraded this week after years of negotiations, with a number of concessions aimed at making trade with the global superpower smoother. The announcement was made this week by Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern after meeting with Chinese Premier Li Keqiang at the East Asia Summit in Bangkok. READ MORE: * China trade by the numbers: New Zealand’s big buyer * New Zealand announces upgrade to China trade deal * Upgraded China free trade agreement won’t deliver for dairy  Seafood New Zealand chief executive Tim Pankhurst said the efficiencies at the border were a welcome change. “Any improvements in the customs border clearance processes are welcome, especially as the value of chilled and live seafood to China was less than 0.1 per cent in 2008 and is now around 51 per cent of the total value of trade to China. The volume of seafood being exported to China had decreased, but the value of the ex...

Queen’s mighty bassist John Deacon is a true recluse, rarely appearing in public since the demise

Queen’s mighty bassist John Deacon is a true recluse, rarely appearing in public since the demise of his band’s iconic singer Freddie Mercury two decades and more ago. But that doesn’t stop us celebrating his body of work, saluting his hugely influential bass playing, revealing the secrets of his gear and pulling in a ton of stellar bass players to pay tribute… We’re often asked about players that we should interview. Without exception, the one name that crops up time and again is John Deacon of Queen. In a reader’s poll in 2017, Mr Deacon came eighth in our list of the Top 40 Greatest Bassists, while two of his best known basslines, Under Pressure and Another One Bites The Dust, could be found in our Top 40 Coolest Basslines Ever poll, at numbers seven and two respectively. Deacon took the decision to call time on his own musical endeavours following the recording of No-One But You (Only The Good Die Young) The man is a huge bass influence and, although Queen’s legend continues to grow, it’s a shock when we realise that the musician who provided the group’s (fat) bottom end hung up his bass strap 21 years ago. Following Queen singer Freddie Mercury’s AIDS-related death in Novem...
