Draft No. VIII WGAE REG.NO.R07960-00 For Carrie Chapter One Below the thunders of the upper deep

Draft No. VIII WGAE REG.NO.R07960-00 For Carrie Chapter One Below the thunders of the upper deep Far, far beneath the abysmal sea His ancient, dreamless, uninvaded sleep The Kraken sleepeth… Alfred, Lord Tennyson For as long as ships have plied the world’s oceans, sailors have returned from distant seas with terrifying tales of many armed monsters rising up from the abyss, attacking ships and devouring men. In the “Odyssey” the mythic beast was called “Scylla,” in Tennyson’s time, the “Kraken.” Generations have been horrified by Jules Vern’s nightmarish creature in “Ten Thousand Leagues under the Sea,” the Giant Squid. To modern biology, the world’s largest invertebrate is known as Archituethis–Greek for Ruling Squid. On November 2, 1878, an Atlantic Giant Squid became stranded in shallow water in the harbor at Thimble Tickle, Newfoundland. Three fishermen hooked onto the floundering animal with a grapple hook, which they tied with a line to a tree on shore, and then they waited for the tide to go out. At low tide the writhing creature lay marooned and doomed on the muddy flats. Its huge mantle measure...

All 2,493 items targeted by China’s tariffs in US trade war — Quartz

China’s latest tariff retaliation, announced today, will hit some $60 billion in US exports, including hundreds of agricultural, mining, and manufactured products, threatening jobs and profits at companies around the United States.  Before the trade war starts in earnest, China bought about 17% of US agricultural exports and was a major market for other goods, from Maine lobster to Boeing aircraft. It has been the largest market for Apple iPhones since 2016. Since the escalation of tariffs, though, China has stopped buying soybeans and lobsters, and Apple warned it would miss its expected Christmas holiday sales figures because of trade tensions. In addition to the 25% tariffs below, Beijing also added 20% tariffs on 1,078 US products, 10% tariffs on 974 US products, and 5% tariffs on 595 US products (all links in Chinese). The list was translated from China’s ministry of finance press release using Google translate, and may be inexact in spots. Quartz also rearranged some items on the list to group them into categories, and they may not be in the order of their “harmonized tariff schedule” codes.  Pipe Extrusion Lines, Extruder Series, Plate & Sheet Extrusion Lines, Roller...

When people started getting sick and dying last year in troubling numbers from respiratory problems associated with using vaporizers and electronic cigarette products, staff at Mercy Wellness dispensary in Cotati set aside their projects and put all attention toward determining whether their products were safe. Demand for electronic vaping devices and cartridges filled with concentrated cannabis oils has risen steadily since the products first hit shelves six years ago at one of Sonoma County’s longest-running dispensaries, said Brandon Levine, Mercy founder and chief executive officer. But then la...

45 Awesome Things With 5-Star Reviews That Are Starting To Sell Out On Amazon

One of the best things about shopping on Amazon is the fact that you get to crowd-source opinions while you shop. Just a quick scroll down the page and you can check product ratings and read reviews posted by real buyers. It’s a dream come true for those of us who stress about the possibility of buyer’s remorse. (Raises hand.) But if you don’t have hours to devote to combing through reviews, you can rely on us. We’ve sourced all these awesome things on Amazon that have tons of 5-star ratings. Now, getting anywhere close to a 5-star rating on Amazon is nothing short of a monumental achievement. Since most everyone posts anonymously, the reviews are no holds barred. And let me tell you —some of the opinions communicated are brutally honest. The bright side of that? When you read tons of reviews singing the praises of some product, you can rest assured that it really is good. Here’s the thing: avid shoppers eventually catch on to products with consistently high ratings, which means they can sell out fast. In other words, you don’t want to sleep on any of these items — they might be gone before you know it. Made from stainless steel and boasting d...

Water authority nears completion of Bessemer Street project | News

Cloudy with occasional light rain in the afternoon. High 46F. Winds ENE at 5 to 10 mph. Chance of rain 80%.. Light rain early…then remaining cloudy with showers late. Low around 35F. Winds NE at 5 to 10 mph. Chance of rain 80%. VERNON TOWNSHIP — A waterline replacement project along Bessemer Street is nearly complete, with only some warmer weather needed to fully finish the project. Thomas Thompson, a consulting engineer, announced at Wednesday’s meeting of the Meadville Area Water Authority that Pollard Land Services, which was contracted to perform part of the work on Bessemer Street alongside Chivers Construction Company Inc., needed to only perform some restoration work in order to finalize the replacement. Restoration, according to Thompson, refers to recovering any dug up areas of land and either repaving or reseeding over it. While restoration is still required, Thompson said the waterline is operational. “They did a fantastic job — yeah they really did,” Project Manager Robert Harrington said of Pollard. “They came in, they really went the extra mile with our customers down there to make sure we didn’t put any of the businesses out dur...

Mitac Precision Technology: The RHCM leader who has demonstrated achievements in developing bio-based materials

With the consumer market changing faster and faster, the focus of electronic products has been gradually shifting from computing speeds and functionalities to design of the appearances, especially in an age where smartphones and tablet PCs are storming the market and becoming an integral part of many people’s life. The fashion-factor of product appearance is now an important consideration when consumers decide whether they will make a purchase or not. The conventional injection molding technology that is commonly used in the production of many components can only control the mold at temperatures around a preset level. The result is, when removed from the mold after being formed, the finished product’s glossiness is rather unsatisfactory. Its welding lines are also rather obvious. Against this backdrop, many companies have started investing in the more advanced Rapid Heat Cycle Molding (RHCM) process, hoping to reduce the time needed for post-molding processing, to minimize the damage to the environment, and to raise the efficiency of the production lines. Among the many companies, Taiwan-based Mitac Precision Technology Co. Ltd., a subsidiary of Getac Technology Corp...
