Just doing his job

first_imgLos Angeles County Fire Department Capt. Gary Bronner said Lyons, 29, is alive because of Sandoval’s help. “Even to the bigger point, he probably would have died if we hadn’t gotten to him before the next minute – that’s how close it was,” Bronner said. Sandoval, 39, went inside the apartment after Glendora police Officer Mike Skibar went in but could not see more than three feet inside because of “intense” smoke and exited the building, Schmidt said. Bronner said Sandoval put on his breathing apparatus, and Glendora fire engineer Ed Vasquez gave him a 300-foot hose line for safety. “I was feeling around and I felt his left foot,” Sandoval said. “I grabbed both feet and dragged him out.” GLENDORA – Firefighter/paramedic Fred Sandoval estimates he took three minutes to save Bryce Lyons’ life. He also insists any one of his fire crew members could have rescued the Glendora man – who was certain to die from smoke inhalation – inside of a fire-filled apartment building. But May 7, Sandoval was the one who went inside the apartment at about 6:40 p.m. in the 500 block of Parker Drive. “Anyone of them would have done it – it was just Fred’s turn to go in,” said John Schmidt, emergency services manager for Glendora. Fireman Dominic Viramontes and firefighter/paramedic Pat Dunham from Engine 32 in Azusa helped pull him away, Sandoval said. Sean Cusack and George Gonzalez from Sandoval’s Engine 151 helped to resuscitate Lyons, Sandoval said. The cause of the fire is under investigation. Sandoval has worked for the Los Angeles County Fire Department since 1990 as a fire suppression aide, and was hired as a firefighter in 1992. He was also an ambulance driver. He has been at his current Glendora station for 11 years. Bronner said it was a team effort in saving Lyons. “I have an excellent crew,” he said. “It doesn’t surprise me my crew made the right decision to make a difference.” Schmidt believes Sandoval made the difference. “If Fred was on the hero list, I’d vote for him.” [email protected] (909) 483-9378160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

Ritchie strikes to stun lacklustre United

first_img0Shares0000Matt Ritchie and the Newcastle fans were elated after he scored the only goal of the game against Manchester United © AFP / Lindsey PARNABYNEWCASTLE, United Kingdom, Feb 11 – Jose Mourinho is still waiting to win a Premier League game at Newcastle after Matt Ritchie’s goal sentenced Manchester United to a shock 1-0 defeat on Sunday.This was Mourinho’s seventh attempt to steer a team to victory on Tyneside and the United manager was destined for more misery at St James’ Park thanks Ritchie’s second-half goal. Adding to Mourinho’s frustration, the goal stemmed from a free-kick awarded for a needless dive by United defender Chris Smalling.But Mourinho could have no complaints about second placed United’s second defeat in their last three league games.This was an unimaginative performance lacking drive and desire and leaves them 16 points behind leaders Manchester City.United couldn’t match the aggression of a Newcastle team fighting for survival and there were wild celebrations at full-time as the hosts moved out of the relegation zone.Mourinho must have feared the worst early on.United arrived with seven clean sheets in their last eight games, but proved to be surprisingly vulnerable.After only five minutes, David De Gea made an excellent save from Jonjo Shelvey after Dwight Gayle’s free-kick rebounded to the midfielder off the United wall.Ayoze Perez drove a shot narrowly wide from the edge of the area and a superb clearance from Smalling snuffed out another Newcastle threat as United struggled to retain possession.It all added up to a hugely encouraging start for Newcastle manager Rafa Benitez, who gave a debut to Slovak goalkeeper Martin Dubravka following his arrival on loan last month.In his first half-hour of Premier League football, Dubravka was only required to make two routine clearances from the edge of his area.At the other end, De Gea had made another save from Kenedy by the time the visitors finally tested Dubravka as he turned away a 32nd minute shot from Jesse Lingard.– Clumsy challenge –Pogba was ineffectual as United lost at Newcastle to slip back towards their fellow top-four hopefulsFour minutes later Dubravka showed why Benitez was so eager to sign him.Anthony Martial appeared certain to score when Nemanja Matic’s measured pass sent him clear, but the keeper narrowed the angle and kicked away the shot.United might have gone in behind if referee Craig Pawson had not rejected justifiable penalty claims when Gayle went down under a clumsy challenge from Smalling in the 40th minute.Benitez’s furious reaction on the touchline mixed anger with disbelief.The Spaniard was more impressed by Pawson’s judgement eight minutes into the second-half when the official decided – correctly – that Romelu Lukaku had pushed a defender as he rose to head past Dubravka.Lukaku, like the majority of his teammates, had been anonymous.One exception was Alexis Sanchez and he almost put them ahead in the 57th minute when he rounded Dubravka before his goal-bound shot was blocked by Florian Lejeune.Mourinho was already preparing to send on substitutes Michael Carrick and Juan Mata in place of the ineffectual Paul Pogba and Lingard when his side went behind from a free-kick awarded for Smalling’s dive.The defender was cautioned and further punishment was to follow when Shelvey delivered the free-kick.Lejeune headed it towards goal, Gayle touched it back into the path of Ritchie and he stroked his shot inside the post from 10 yards.It proved to be enough to earn Newcastle three invaluable points, but only after two goalline clearances from Gayle denied Martial in the closing moments.0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today)last_img read more

RIM Agrees to Indonesian Government’s Demands to Filter BlackBerry Users’ Internet Access

first_imgRelated Posts Why IoT Apps are Eating Device Interfaces What it Takes to Build a Highly Secure FinTech … Tags:#mobile#NYT#web The Rise and Rise of Mobile Payment Technologycenter_img BlackBerry maker RIM has agreed to the Indonesian government’s demands to implement pornography filters for the country’s 2 million BlackBerry users. According to a statement from the company RIM is seeking a “prompt, compliant filtering solution.” The Indonesian government gave RIM until January 21 to begin filtering porn sites or face being shut down in the country.RIM has faced these sorts of threats from other governments for failing to censor online content, most notably last year when both Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates were poised to ban the devices for non-compliance with the countries’ telecommunications rules. But this is the first time that RIM has publically agreed to filter Internet content on its phones. However it’s unlikely to be the last time that it will face these sorts of demands, particularly as RIM expands into countries where there are heavy restrictions on porn and other “objectionable” content. “This isn’t just Indonesia,” Heru Sutadi, a member of the Indonesian Telecommunications Regulatory Body, which oversees the industry, told Bloomberg. “Middle Eastern countries are also being hard on RIM. By looking at the big Indonesia market, I’m sure RIM will obey.”According to Bloomberg, the filtering in Indonesia may include a complete blocking of the BlackBerry’s web browsing capabilities. While RIM has said it will offer an Internet filter in Indonesia, it has complied with several other of the government’s requests, building a server in Indonesia so authorities can “conduct investigations against perpetrators of crime.” Role of Mobile App Analytics In-App Engagement audrey watterslast_img read more

Are Solar-Powered Attic Ventilators Green?

first_imgAt face value, attic exhaust fans make a lot of sense: if your attic is too hot, you force more air through it to cool it down. To be efficient, you use a solar-powered attic exhaust fan. When the sun is shining and heating up your attic, that’s when the photovoltaic panel wired to the exhaust fan powers the fan. Pretty slick.But there is a catch: why is your attic “too hot?” It is probably because living space under the attic is uncomfortable…from the less-than-well insulated and air sealed ceiling that separates the attic from those rooms. If you don’t have a continuous air seal at the ceiling plane, then your solar-powered attic exhaust fan can pull conditioned air into the attic—now that will cool it down! It can be worse than that: if that attic fan is depressurizing living space that has atmospherically-vented gas appliances or a problem with radon, you may have moved from wasting energy to indoor air quality problems. RELATED GBA ARTICLES Fans in the Attic: Do They Help or Do They Hurt?Martin’s Useless Products ListGeorgia Pulls the Attic-Ventilator Plug (Sort of) INFORMATION ON POWERED ATTIC VENTILATORS Effective Attic VentilationHome Energy: Drawbacks Of Powered Attic VentilatorsFSEC: Performance Assessment of Photovoltaic Attic Ventilator Fans center_img Field research supports these scenarios. Work done in 1995 by John Tooley and Bruce Davis of Advanced Energy Corp (as reported in Home Energy, “Drawbacks of Powered Attic Ventilators”) revealed depressurization issues and associated energy, moisture and combustion safety problems. And field research done by the Florida Solar Energy Center (FSEC) specifically on solar-powered attic ventilation (“Performance Assessment of Photovoltaic Attic Ventilator Fans”) concluded that the approximately $850 installed cost of the system yielded relatively modest cooling energy savings and an unfavorable payback over more than twenty years.The bottom line? Proceed with caution. If you have a well-sealed and insulated attic floor and either no HVAC equipment in the attic or all of the HVAC equipment and ducts in the attic are well sealed, then you could install solar-powered attic ventilation with some cooling energy benefit and little potential for safety or indoor air quality problems. For far too many homes, this is a mighty big “if.”Joe Lstiburek of Building Science Corp. puts it this way:“In order for the fan to work the air needs to come from the outside and not be pulled from the house so this means that the attic ceiling needs to be airtight. If the attic ceiling is airtight you don’t need the fan. Your money is better spent on something else.”For most homes, it will be “greener” to take the money you would have spent on the PV-powered attic ventilation and upgrade the air sealing and insulation in your attic and on your HVAC system.last_img read more

PEP Students Will Have Enough Materials – Education Minister

first_imgStory Highlights “We’re going to also have these practice materials online (on) an exclusive website. All materials necessary for assisting in preparing our students, as well as teachers to deliver the National Standards Curriculum (NSC) and PEP, are going to be made available to the society,” he pointed out. Parents of students sitting the Primary Exit Profile (PEP) are being assured that enough materials will be provided to adequately prepare students for the upcoming examination. Speaking at a meeting of the Rotary Club of Portmore at the Jamaica Employers’ Federation (JEF) headquarters on Ruthven Road in Kingston on September 19, Education, Youth and Information Minister, Senator the Hon. Ruel Reid, said sample items and practice materials are to be made available to the education system and will be accessible free of cost. Parents of students sitting the Primary Exit Profile (PEP) are being assured that enough materials will be provided to adequately prepare students for the upcoming examination.Speaking at a meeting of the Rotary Club of Portmore at the Jamaica Employers’ Federation (JEF) headquarters on Ruthven Road in Kingston on September 19, Education, Youth and Information Minister, Senator the Hon. Ruel Reid, said sample items and practice materials are to be made available to the education system and will be accessible free of cost.“We’re going to also have these practice materials online (on) an exclusive website. All materials necessary for assisting in preparing our students, as well as teachers to deliver the National Standards Curriculum (NSC) and PEP, are going to be made available to the society,” he pointed out.The NSC aims to enhance the quality of education offered to learners and improve the general academic performance, attitude and behaviour of students, which will redound to the positive shaping of the national, social and economic fabric.The curriculum, which is learner-centred and emphasises problem-solving skills, will help to realise the mantra of the Ministry of Education, Youth and Information that ‘every child can learn… every child must learn’.Addressing the concerns of some parents who had purchased workbooks designed for the obsolete Grade Six Achievement Test (GSAT), the Minister insisted that students will have “limited preparation in utilising those books for PEP”.He urged parents not to panic, as the Ministry will “provide the core curriculum texts for the (primary school) system”.Senator Reid said he has instructed the Chief Education Officer, Dr. Grace McLean, to investigate “how wrong information might have gotten out there”.“I got one particular complaint from a primary school where it has been alleged that a secretary sent out the wrong information. However, this is an isolated incident and not general. I want parents and the parent-teacher associations (PTAs) to be vigilant to ensure that schools are conforming to the Ministry’s directives,” he said.The PEP replaces the GSAT as the national secondary-school entrance test and is intended to provide a better and more complete profile of students’ academic and critical-thinking capabilities at the end of primary-level education.It comprises a Performance Task, Ability Test and a Curriculum-based Test. Students who entered grade six in September 2018 will comprise the first PEP cohort.The Education Ministry has been training teachers for implementation of the examination.last_img read more
