Washington St. Photo courtesy of Creative Commons.Welcome to The Most Haunted Places In The RGV. I am your narrator, Luna.On our last story, we visited South Padre Island, where we continued our investigation at the Isla Grand Resort, formerly known as the Radisson Resort. JoeDarkly Vlogs and I were supposed to shoot a video update for The Radisson, but were not able to, due to bad weather. We will have a video update soon, later on in the week.This week, we are taking you to another part of Cameron County, where many individuals have informed me of high levels of paranormal activity in Brownsville, Texas, at a place called “The Stillman House.” The Stillman House was built in 1850, by Henry Miller, with Charles Stillman (a founder of Brownsville, Texas) moving in with his wife Elizabeth and their two children. Elizabeth moved her children New York, due to the high levels of disease in Brownsville at the time, while Charles stayed behind and expanded his business in Brownsville to make a better life for his family. The house was then owned by Manuel Treviño—sold to him by Stillman in 1858—who maintained the home for 50 years, once making the home the site of the Mexican Consulate.When I got the pleasure of visiting the Stillman home, now a historical museum, I got a chance to speak to some of the employees that have worked there for almost 70 years. I interviewed a lady named Esther who has worked there since 2002, as a housekeeper, taking over from housekeeper Cindo Camario, who worked there for 70 years, but left after experiencing a lot of paranormal phenomena.Esther told her the things he saw and heard, but she didn’t initially believe him. She also claims that Camario told her of hearing a little girl that would cry and ask for help. Legend has it that there was a little girl who lived there, bound to a wheelchair. The family never let her out into society, because they were ashamed of their child being in a wheelchair, so they locked her away in one of the rooms so others wouldn’t see her. The little girl would plead with her parents to let her come out to play when other children would visit the family and they denied her plea. The little girl later died in the Stillman House, and many people claim they still hear and see her in the house, asking for someone’s help to let her out. Esther said one day, when she was cleaning the Stillman House, that she herself saw the little girl in the hallway. Esther asked her if she was lost, and the little girl asked her for help in a very faint voice.Esther says she little girl isn’t the only spirit that is in the Stillman House. She told me that when she was in the kitchen, towards the back of the house, she was getting things ready to close up when she locked one of the side doors. Esther heard banging on thedoor, as if someone had been locked out. When she opened the door, no one was there. She thought nothing of the situation and locked the side door again, only to hear someone banging against the door again. She ran back to the door to open it and the banging stopped. Esther continued to close down the museum when she claims that she saw a man standing in the house, dressed in 1920s attire, speaking calmly as he described Esther’s deceased husband.She claims that the man described everything that her husband wore before they buried him, and she was stunned, because no one else knew what her husband was buried in but her and her family. Esther says that she had no idea who this man was and shocked how he knew all this information. Esther says that after the man walked away, all the cleaning supplies on the shelf fell to the ground. Esther followed the man inside but he was gone. Another employee that walked in to speak to Esther asked her what was going on, and Esther asked her, “Did you see the man that just walked out of here?” The employee told her “No! What man? I didn’t see anyone walk in or out of the house!” Esther was confused, but says she never saw the man again.I took it upon myself to do a little investigating of my own after I interviewed Esther, and I, too, had a paranormal experience of my own. I walked into the house, with my voice recorder on, and asked the usual questions, like “are there any spirits here that would like tospeak?” But I got no response. I walked into the hallway and I took some photos to see if I captured any orbs or anomalies, and one of the photos I took seemed to stay out of focus. I turned to the left to take another picture and when I looked at one of the mirrors I saw something and I got really scared. I stood there frozen, not knowing what to expect, so I decided to walk very slowly in case there was something there. I walked carefully toward the mirror with my camera recording, so if in fact I saw something, it would come out on camera. When I turned the corner to see who or what it was, I began to laugh at myself for being such a scaredy cat, because the reflection I saw wasn’t an entity: it was a mannequin! I felt so ridiculous after I saw it and was still laughing.I kept walking, continuing my investigation with my voice recorder and asking other questions. I walked up to the room where employees claimed to have seen, and heard, the little girl and asked, “What is your name?” How old are you?” After my investigation I thanked the employees and Esther for letting me visit and experience the Stillman House Museum. Later on that day. when I got home. I decided to go back and listen to my voice recording to see if I caught any paranormal entities that wanted to be heard. At first I heard nothing, but when I listened closer to when I asked for a name, I could hear loud breathing, and I thought. maybe it’s just me and thought nothing of it. When I got to the part of when I asked, “How old are you?” I heard someone say “Luna!” in response. I replayed the recording and again, hearing my name “Luna!”If you have a similar story, please feel free to contact me at joannasanchez3232@gmail.com. We will be more than happy to get your story.

Layani Kendaraan Listrik, Momentum Dynamics Rilis Halte Berdaya 200 Kilowatt Nirkabel

first_imgSumber: newatlas.com Perkembangan teknologi yang kian merambah seolah memaksa setiap orang untuk turut berada di dalamnya agar tetap dapat bersaing, tidak terkecuali di dunia transportasi. Dewasa ini, sudah banyak perusahaan-perusahaan bus dari seluruh penjuru dunia yang mulai beralih menggunakan armada berbasis tenaga listrik yang didukung oleh pabrikan seperti Hyundai, Daimler, BYD, hingga Proterra.Baca Juga: Seorang Desainer Industri Rancang Halte Bus yang Dilengkapi Pengisian Daya EV Nirkabel!Berbicara soal bus listrik, tak lengkap rasanya jika tidak menginggung soal sistem pengisian dayanya. Jika pada artikel sebelumnya sudah pernah dibahas soal seorang desainer yang merancang halte lengkap dengan stasiun pengisian daya listrik nirkabel untuk bus, kini sebuah perusahaan yang berbasis di Pennsylvania, Amerika, Momentum Dynamics, diketahui tengah memasarkan charger nirkabel berkekuatan 200 kilowatt pertama di Negeri Paman Sam sebelah Utara. Seperti yang dihimpun KabarPenumpang.com dari laman newatlas.com (20/4/2018), Momentum Dynamics sendiri telah menguji coba charger nirkabel ini pada bus listrik yang menggunakan mesin BYD di Wenatchee, Washington beberapa waktu yang lalu. Bus tersebut mengisi daya sembari melakukan pemberhentian secara rutin. Bus-bus ini tidak melulu melakukan operasi secara terus-menerus, ada kalanya mereka berhenti – semisal menaik-turunkan penumpang atau berganti pengemudi. Nah, di saat itulah daya mereka diisi ulang.Salah satu pihak dari Momentum Dynamics mengatakan bahwa ketika bus listrik BYD K9S melakukan pemberhentian terjadwal di Link Transit di Wenatchee selama 5 menit, baterainya secara nirkabel akan menerima lebih dari cukup daya untuk ‘menggelinding’ di rute berikutnya. Cara pengisiannya pun cukup sederhana, bus hanya perlu berhenti di atas mesin pemancar yang tertanam di jalan dan pengisian daya pun akan mulai secara otomatis.“Kesederhanaan konsep pengisian dan kapasitas daya yang mampu disalurkan kepada bus-bus listrik ini memungkinkan setiap armada melakukan perjalanan secara terus menerus sepanjang hari tanpa harus melakukan pemberhentian khusus untuk mengisi daya,” tutur salah seorang juru bicara dari Link Transit, Todd Daniel.Baca Juga: North Carolina Canangkan Halte Bus dengan Tenaga Surya“Kami berencana untuk memperluas sistem pengisian daya nirkabel ini hingga ke wilayah pedesaan dalam waktu dekat ini. Hadirnya prasarana semacam ini secara tidak langsung akan mendorong program penggunaan 100 persen moda elektrik,” timbalnya. Momentum Dynamics memperhitungkan bahwa penghematan biaya potensial untuk operator bus yang menjalankan armada listrik dapat menambah hingga jutaan dolar setiap tahun, dibandingkan dengan armada kendaraan diesel dan hibrida.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Like this:Like Loading… RelatedSeorang Desainer Industri Rancang Halte Bus yang Dilengkapi Pengisian Daya EV Nirkabel!16/02/2018In “Bus dalam kota”Bus Listrik Untuk TransJakarta, Antara Harapan dan Realita30/11/2017In “Bus dalam kota”Tak Perlu Repot Bawa Kabel, Penumpang South Western Railway Bisa Nikmati Charger Nirkabel18/12/2018In “Darat”last_img read more

Bill To Combat Opioid Epidemic Passes House

first_imgWhile treatment for opioid addiction and law enforcement efforts to reduce the access to illegal opioids are both important pieces of addressing the current crisis, reducing the potential for abuse of legally obtained opioids is one of the lowest cost measures that can deliver the greatest benefits. House Bill 159 passed the Alaska House of Representatives by a vote of 25-8. HB 159 will now be transmitted to the Alaska State Senate for consideration. Dr. Butler: “We can do a better job of not only describing the risk of Opioids but also providing information on what can do be done in our communities to address the problem. This includes promotion of leftover drug return and disposal, and talking openly about recognition and management of dependency and addiction as health issue rather than solely a criminal justice issue or moral failing.”  Both Governor Walker and the Alaska Legislature recently issued a disaster declaration for the ongoing opioid epidemic and allowed for the distribution of Naloxone. HB 159 is an important next step in curbing the recent rapid growth of opioid abuse in Alaska. Rep. Spohnholz: “90 people died of opioid overdose in 2016, and two thirds of those deaths involved a prescription opioid. Better information and education can reduce these avoidable tragic losses to individuals, families, and communities.” HB 159 takes simple steps, including requiring two out of every 40 hours of providers’ continuing medical education credits be in pain management and providing regular reports with non-punitive feedback to each provider on her or his prescribing practices for opioids and how that compares to that of their peers. FacebookTwitterEmailPrintFriendly分享The Alaska House of Representatives passed House Bill 159, introduced at the request of the Governor Bill Walker and carried in the House by Rep. Ivy Spohnholz (D-Anchorage), to update statutes regarding the prescription of opioids to empower and protect Alaskans. In addition to education and information for providers, HB 159 would give patients the ability to execute a Voluntary Nonopioid Directive, and parents and guardians will have the ability to do so on behalf of minors. These directives would prevent the use of opioids in treatment (except in an emergency) and will help patients who believe they may be at risk of addiction or abuse. The bill also increases consultation and update requirements for the Prescription Drug Monitoring Program (PDMP) database, limits initial prescriptions to a maximum of seven days (unless the prescriber documents why a longer prescription is necessary), and allows patients to request pharmacists only partially fill a prescription.

Hope targets another masterclass in England

first_imgMANCHESTER, England (CMC): Windies middle-order batsman Shai Hope believes he has it in him to repeat the heroics at Headingley in 2017 when he led his side to one of its most famous wins against England.Hope, who is here with 24 other Windies players for the three-Test Wisden series beginning next month, says it’s just a matter of self-belief.Three years ago, against all odds, he crafted two of the greatest innings in Windies Test history, 147 and 118 not out, becoming the first batsman to make tons in the same match.He was immediately catapulted into the limelight and was named one of Wisden’s Five Cricketers of the Year. He shared the spotlight with Kraigg Brathwaite, who fell just five runs short of a similar double, with scores of 134 and 95, as the pair shared century stands in both innings. Belief in self “I just need to have the continued belief in myself, back my ability … because I know I can get it done. It’s not like I haven’t done it before,” he said via a Zoom link from the team’s base at Old Trafford in Manchester on Tuesday. “It’s a case of making sure I make the most of these opportunities and do whatever I can to make the team win.“Obviously, you’re going to be hard on yourself, especially when you know you can get something done but it’s not really portraying on the stats.”Hope has displayed imperious form in the One-Day Internationals (ODI), where he averages 52. During the last three years, he has made eight centuries and 13 fifties in ODIs, at an average of 57 – the best figures by a wicket-keeper in West Indies history. Last year, he scored 1,345 runs at an average of 61.13 – including a memorable match-winning ton against India in Chennai. AVERAGES However, he has struggled in the Test format, with an average of 27.Since the West Indies’ famous win at Leeds, he has not passed three figures and over that three-year period has averaged 19.“Red-ball batting is definitely my favourite part of the game, but the runs and the stats aren’t exactly where we want them to be, but I’m working towards that,” he said.Earlier this week, assistant coach Roddy Estwick urged the Barbadian to rediscover his Test form in the upcoming “biosecure” series in which matches will be played at Ageas Bowl in Southampton July 8-12 and at Old Trafford in Manchester on July 16-20 and 24-28 behind closed doors.last_img read more
