CCRFS provides free home smoke alarm installations

first_imgThe State Fire Marshal’s Office recently presented the Campbell County Rural Fire Service (CCRFS) with a supply of 10-year battery smoke alarms to be installed in all homes owned or rented within the community that are high risk of fire.This statewide distribution of smoke alarms launched in November of 2012 and is part of the State Fire Marshal’s effort to both educate and equip Tennesseans to incorporate fire safety into their daily lives.“We want residents to make sure they have functional smoke alarms in their homes, as well as a rehearsed fire-escape plan. These are tools proven to save lives – because even one fire death is one too many,” says State Fire Marshal Julie Mix McPeak.The alarms are free, but must be installed by the fire department or a partnering organization that has been trained by the fire department. Because supplies are limited, the fire department may need to give first preference to those who are not able to otherwise afford smoke alarms.“We are excited to be able to partner with the State Fire Marshal’s Office in providing these smoke alarms for the citizens here in Campbell County said Daniel Lawson of the Campbell County Rural Fire Service “Fire can spread through a home in a matter of minutes and smoke alarms can give residents the warning needed to get out safely.”To request an installation, call 423-563-9983 and provide your name, address, and phone number. A fire department representative will then contact you to schedule a time for the installation.In addition to having working smoke alarms, follow these other important tips to make sure your home is fire-safe:Always stay in the kitchen when frying, grilling, or broiling food. • Check to see that matches and lighters are kept up high in a cabinet with a childproof lock. • Develop a home fire escape plan with two ways out of every room and an outside meeting place. Share and practice the plan with every member of the household.Keep portable space heaters and candles 3 feet away from anything that can burn, including people, furniture, and pets.Always turn off portable space heaters when you leave the room or go to bed.Have the chimney cleaned and checked regularly.Do not smoke in bed.Make sure that all matches and ashes are cool before being thrown away.Make sure that extension cords are in good condition and are used to power small items only – never major appliances.For further information on fire safety, feel free to visit the State Fire Marshal’s Office Get Alarmed Program by CLICKING HERE.   (WLAF NEWS PUBLISHED – 10/23/2018-6AM)Share this:FacebookTwitterlast_img read more

Govt, business join climate fight

first_img18 October 2005A partnership between the government and Business Unity South Africa to address the challenge of climate change was formed at the National Climate Change Conference in Midrand, Johannesburg on Monday.The newly formed partnership is expected to create a system for monitoring and reporting on the levels of greenhouse gas emissions in South Africa.“At the World Summit on Sustainable Development, South Africa led the way in highlighting the ‘triple bottom line’ of business – economic, social, and environmental concerns,” said Business Unity SA (Busa) President Patrice Motsepe.“This agreement gives further content to that approach. Busa understands the importance of economic growth that does not mortgage our future for the sake of short-term profit, and we will work with government to ensure that we address the challenges of climate change together.”The mining magnate also referred to the increasing number of South African companies that were exploring investment opportunities presented by the Clean Development Mechanism.Environmental Affairs Minister Marthinus van Schalkwyk said the government hoped to extend the partnership with business to other interventions, “especially those which will help our rural and agricultural communities adapt to the impacts of climate change through the diversification of the rural economy.”Investment in scienceScience Minister Mosibudi Mangena opened the science session of the conference with calls for greater investment in the science of climate change and African research and development.Stating alternatives for energy use, Mangena said nuclear power was one of the options, alongside wind and solar technologies.“Climate change research requires global observation of numerous characteristics of the earth system over a long period of time,” the minister said.“Scientists need to ensure that reliable data is collected by a whole suite of observing systems – from satellite to surface stations to ocean buoys operated by various countries and agencies.”Source: BuaNews Want to use this article in your publication or on your website?See: Using SAinfo materiallast_img read more

OpenSocial’s Failed Promise: Only 0.7% of Apps Have Crossed Networks (Updated)

first_imgA Comprehensive Guide to a Content Audit The Dos and Don’ts of Brand Awareness Videos Facebook is Becoming Less Personal and More Pro… marshall kirkpatrick Guide to Performing Bulk Email Verification OpenSocial was intended to help everyone else keep up with the huge success of the Facebook platform. If there’s one clear market leader, everyone else has a common interest in creating a standard that will help scale the market opportunity on their platforms vs. what Facebook can offer. It hasn’t worked out that way, though. Outside observers hoped that OpenSocial would allow for user data to be transmitted from one site to another. People thought this was the coming of Data Portability, though OpenSocial advocates quickly said that wasn’t the intent. It was just for apps to port, not user data. There is a lot of innovation going on in OpenSocial – it’s a shame the platform isn’t better appreciated.Below: I discuss OpenSocial in March of last year on G4TV, forced to break the host’s heart about data portability!Video Games – E3 2009 – Attack of the ShowWhy hasn’t cross-network development happened though? There are a few theories. The most common is that though there is a common bed of code across all the different social network containers, each of them is also tweaked just enough that it’s not that easy to “write once.” When that became apparent, OpenSocial advocates started saying that the standard still made it a lot easier to develop for multiple networks. So if not “write once, deploy everywhere” then perhaps it was “write once and then take a lot less time to write for elsewhere than you’d have to otherwise.”Clearly developers haven’t taken advantage of that opportunity.Google’s Kevin Marks, one of the leading public faces for OpenSocial, told us today that there are serious cultural differences between the networks and that this could help explain why there hasn’t been more cross pollination. One look through the directory makes it clear though that while the countless “hot bikini girl” apps may not translate from MySpace to LinkedIn well, all the other networks have their own isolated versions of many of the same insipid apps.The most viable explanation could be that Facebook is in fact the only game in town for the most sophisticated developers. That’s a real shame, because it’s never good for innovation for there to be only one game in town. Tags:#social networks#web#Yahoo Related Posts When the Google-led OpenSocial campaign launched in October 2007 it aimed to give developers a common environment that application publishers could publish widgets to with one set of code, deployable across Google sites, MySpace, Hi5 and numerous other social networks.A directory of OpenSocial Apps launched today and the reality is even further from that goal than we expected. Out of 12,456 apps listed, only 83 are running on two or more “containers.” That’s 0.7% or one out of every 1500. Update: See this reply below from Google’s Kevin Marks. Marks says that cross-network presence was counted manually and is actually larger than it appears in the directory.last_img read more

Pakistan’s tour of Zimbabwe called off: PCB sources

first_imgPakistan team’s tour of Zimbabwe next month and a planned tri-series ODI tournament there have been called off after mutual understanding between the two countries.A Pakistan Cricket Board official confirmed to PTI that the tour was officially off.”It is true we were having second thoughts about playing a tri-series with West Indies but the Zimbabwe Board was also facing problems securing sponsors for the tour. So basically the tour is off with mutual understanding,” the official said.He said the PCB had told Zimbabwe that it would definitely undertake a full tour in the near future whenever both countries were able to secure a window for the bilateral series.The calling off of the tour to Zimbabwe has come about after a new look Pakistan side outclassed Sri Lanka to gain a unassailable 3-1 lead in the ongoing five match one-day series. The series win has also boosted Pakistan’s rankings in the ICC ODI standings to eighth position.The PCB official said that previous reports about the PCB confirming the tri-series in Zimbabwe were not correct. “No agreement was made for either the tri-series or bilateral ODI series,” the official said.He said Pakistan had offered to play a T20 tri-series with West Indies in Zimbabwe but the hosts had declined the idea saying it was not viable for them.”But we remain committed to touring Zimbabwe in near future as we enjoy very good relations with Zimbabwe cricket board particularly after the way they supported us by sending their team to Pakistan in May,” he said.advertisementZimbabwe became the first Test side to play in Pakistan in May six years after militants attacked the Sri Lankan team in Lahore.last_img read more
