The kilogram may need to go on a diet. The international standard, a cylinder-shaped hunk of metal that defines the fundamental unit of mass, has gained tens of micrograms in weight from surface contamination, according to a new study.
As a result, each country that has one of these standard masses has a slightly different definition of the kilogram, which could throw off science experiments that require very precise weight measurements or international trade in highly restricted items that are restricted by weight, such as radioactive materials.
But ozone and ultraviolet light could be used to clean the kilograms without damaging them, the research suggests.
But Schwarzenegger said that gun laws and mental health guidance need reform, not Hollywood.
“How can we do better with gun laws?” asked Schwarzenegger. “If there are any loopholes, if there’s a problem, let’s analyze it ... Are we really dealing with the mental problems the right way as a society?”
In terms of parenting, the former politician alluded to the Connecticut killer Adam Lanza’s mother, Nancy, who was also shot and killed by her own son on that tragic day.
“Does a mother need to collect guns and take her little kids shooting?” he asked.
“Everything has to be analyzed; no stone unturned,” he added. “I think that’s what we owe to our people.”
So in the same breath he definitively states that Hollywood’s trade in violent movies has absolutely nothiing to do with anything and ALSO says that we myst analyze everything. If we have to analyze everything, then why not the type of entertainment that has made Schwarzenegger millions?
Six shots. Five hits in the face and neck. He lived. Thank goodness she still got away. And thank goodness there was only one bad guy. Perhaps next time she’ll have a self-defense weapon with a larger capacity just in case.
The incident happened at a home on Henderson Ridge Lane in Loganville around 1 p.m. The woman was working in an upstairs office when she spotted a strange man outside a window, according to Walton County Sheriff Joe Chapman. He said she took her 9-year-old twins to a crawlspace before the man broke in using a crowbar.
But the man eventually found the family.
“The perpetrator opens that door. Of course, at that time he’s staring at her, her two children and a .38 revolver,” Chapman told Channel 2’s Kerry Kavanaugh.
The woman then shot him five times, but he survived, Chapman said. He said the woman ran out of bullets but threatened to shoot the intruder if he moved.
“She’s standing over him, and she realizes she’s fired all six rounds. And the guy’s telling her to quit shooting,” Chapman said.
The woman ran to a neighbor’s home with her children. The intruder attempted to flee in his car but crashed into a wooded area and collapsed in a nearby driveway, Chapman said.
Deputies arrested 32-year-old Atlanta resident Paul Slater in connection with the crime. Chapman said they found him on the ground saying, “Help me. I’m close to dying.” Slater was taken to Gwinnett Medical Center for treatment. Chapman said Slater was shot in the face and neck.
The overages will be more spread out this year, however, as the passage of Act 10 means administrators can decide who gets extra classes, instead of seniority dictating eligibility. Like many other college administrators, Rafn said overages — and overall personnel costs — will drop because Act 10 allowed schools to extend the number of classes covered by base salary and decrease the amount paid for overages.
And people out of work…. thanks to your federal government. ADDED: And Wisconsin’s Attorney General.
Waukesha - The Golden Guernsey dairy processing plant in Waukesha that supplies milk to schools and supermarkets was closed suddenly Saturday when employees showed up for work and were told not to stay, sources said.
Lynn Hiemke, president of Mapleton Dairy Haulers in Oconomowoc, said he was told by Golden Guernsey managers early Saturday that the plant was shutting down.
Hiemke said he was stunned by the closing and left scrambling as he tried to find alternate supplies of milk for hundreds of local schools.
“There’s going to be schools without milk on Monday morning - a lot of them - and they don’t know it yet,” he said.
The U.S. Department of Justice - along with attorneys general in Wisconsin, Illinois and Michigan - had raised concerns that Dean Foods would have too much of a share of the school milk supply in Wisconsin and Michigan’s Upper Peninsula. As a result, they required Dean to sell the Waukesha plant while allowing it to retain its dairy processing plant in De Pere, just south of Green Bay.
