The two-dimensional IR nonlinear spectroscopy of a cyclic penta-peptide in relation to its three-dimensional structure. (1/179)

A form of two-dimensional (2D) vibrational spectroscopy, which uses two ultrafast IR laser pulses, is used to examine the structure of a cyclic penta-peptide in solution. Spectrally resolved cross peaks occur in the off-diagonal region of the 2D IR spectrum of the amide I region, analogous to those in 2D NMR spectroscopy. These cross peaks measure the coupling between the different amide groups in the structure. Their intensities and polarizations relate directly to the three-dimensional structure of the peptide. With the help of a model coupling Hamiltonian, supplemented by density functional calculations, the spectra of this penta-peptide can be regenerated from the known solution phase structure. This 2D-IR measurement, with an intrinsic time resolution of less than 1 ps, could be used in all time regimes of interest in biology.  (+info)

Molecular and epidemiological characterization of vaginal Saccharomyces cerevisiae isolates. (2/179)

Although vaginitis caused by Saccharomyces cerevisiae is extremely rare, in recent years we have experienced an increasing frequency of S. cerevisiae isolation from the vaginas of fertile-age women. In order to investigate the epidemiology of these vaginal infections, a total of 40 isolates of S. cerevisiae derived from symptomatic and asymptomatic women were characterized by two DNA typing approaches, named ribosomal DNA (rDNA) hybridization and Ty917 hybridization, based on the Southern blotting technique. After transfer, the polymorphic DNA restriction fragments were hybridized with the entire repeat of S. cerevisiae rDNA for one method and with the entire sequence of the Ty917 retrotransposon for the other. After elaboration with computer-assisted analysis, the results of each method showed that Ty917 hybridization is endowed with a discriminatory power higher than that of rDNA hybridization. With the Ty917 hybridization method, all of the S. cerevisiae isolates tested appeared very heterogeneous, with the exception of those collected from individual patients with recurrent vaginitis. This allowed us to exclude a possible common source of infection while the high relatedness among S. cerevisiae sequential isolates from recurrent-vaginitis patients could suggest a pattern of relapse rather than frequent reinfection.  (+info)

DNA computing the Hamiltonian path problem. (3/179)

The directed Hamiltonian path (DHP) problem is one of the hard computational problems for which there is no practical algorithm on a conventional computer available. Many problems, including the traveling sales person problem and the longest path problem, can be translated into the DHP problem, which implies that an algorithm for DHP can also solve all the translated problems. To study the robustness of the laboratory protocol of the pioneering DNA computing for the DHP problem performed by Leonard Adleman (1994), we investigated how the graph size, multiplicity of the Hamiltonian paths, and the size of oligonucleotides that encode the vertices would affect the laboratory procedures. We applied Adleman's protocol with 18-mer oligonucleotide per node to a graph with 8 vertices and 14 edges containing two Hamiltonian paths (Adleman used 20-mer oligonucleotides for a graph with 7 nodes, 14 edges and one Hamiltonian path). We found that depending on the graph characteristics such as the number of short cycles, the oligonucleotide size, and the hybridization conditions that used to encode the graph, the protocol should be executed with different parameters from Adleman's.  (+info)

An ontology for biological function based on molecular interactions. (4/179)

MOTIVATIONS: A number of important bioinformatics computations involve computing with function: executing computational operations whose inputs or outputs are descriptions of the functions of biomolecules. Examples include performing functional queries to sequence and pathway databases, and determining functional equality to evaluate algorithms that predict function from sequence. A prerequisite to computing with function is the existence of an ontology that provides a structured semantic encoding of function. Functional bioinformatics is an emerging subfield of bioinformatics that is concerned with developing ontologies and algorithms for computing with biological function. RESULTS: The article explores the notion of computing with function, and explains the importance of ontologies of function to bioinformatics. The functional ontology developed for the EcoCyc database is presented. This ontology can encode a diverse array of biochemical processes, including enzymatic reactions involving small-molecule substrates and macromolecular substrates, signal-transduction processes, transport events, and mechanisms of regulation of gene expression. The ontology is validated through its use to express complex functional queries for the EcoCyc DB. CONTACT: [email protected]  (+info)

Graphically-enabled integration of bioinformatics tools allowing parallel execution. (6/179)

Rapid analysis of large amounts of genomic data is of great biological as well as medical interest. This type of analysis will greatly benefit from the ability to rapidly assemble a set of related analysis programs and to exploit the power of parallel computing. TurboGenomics, which is a software package currently in its alpha-testing phase, allows integration of heterogeneous software components to be done graphically. In addition, the tool is capable of making the integrated components run in parallel. To demonstrate these abilities, we use the tool to develop a Web-based application that allows integrated access to a set of large-scale sequence data analysis programs used by a transposon-insertion based yeast genome project. We also contrast the differences in building such an application with and without using the TurboGenomics software.  (+info)

Computerized reminders for five preventive screening tests: generation of patient-specific letters incorporating physician preferences. (7/179)

Compliance with preventive screening tests is inadequate in the United States. We describe a computer based system for generating reminder letters to patients who may have missed their indicated screening tests because they do not visit a provider regularly or missed their tests despite the fact that they do visit a provider. We started with national recommendations and generated a local consensus for test indications. We then used this set of indications and our electronic record to determine test deficiencies in our pilot pool of 3073 patients. The computer generated customized reminder letters targeting several tests. Physicians chose any patients who should not receive letters. The response rate for fecal occult blood (FOB) testing was 33% compared with an 18% historical compliance rate within the same community. FOB reminders generated improved test compliance. Test execution must be considered when commencing a program of screening test reminders.  (+info)

Six-fold speed-up of Smith-Waterman sequence database searches using parallel processing on common microprocessors. (8/179)

MOTIVATION: Sequence database searching is among the most important and challenging tasks in bioinformatics. The ultimate choice of sequence-search algorithm is that of Smith-Waterman. However, because of the computationally demanding nature of this method, heuristic programs or special-purpose hardware alternatives have been developed. Increased speed has been obtained at the cost of reduced sensitivity or very expensive hardware. RESULTS: A fast implementation of the Smith-Waterman sequence-alignment algorithm using Single-Instruction, Multiple-Data (SIMD) technology is presented. This implementation is based on the MultiMedia eXtensions (MMX) and Streaming SIMD Extensions (SSE) technology that is embedded in Intel's latest microprocessors. Similar technology exists also in other modern microprocessors. Six-fold speed-up relative to the fastest previously known Smith-Waterman implementation on the same hardware was achieved by an optimized 8-way parallel processing approach. A speed of more than 150 million cell updates per second was obtained on a single Intel Pentium III 500 MHz microprocessor. This is probably the fastest implementation of this algorithm on a single general-purpose microprocessor described to date.  (+info)

This application is being revised for the AJAX widgets for phylo-informatics project idea. Abstract: This project aims to construct a web-based interface for the tree display and annotation feature of the xrate tool. Through the use of an easy-to-use web interface, those that are not familiar with the process of compiling their own software in an Unix environment, but are comfortable with using a web browser, will be able to use xrates tree tools. It is hoped that such an interface will then be portable enough to be used on other similar tools to allow for easy deployment of any command line based bioinformatics utility. It uses Perl scripts to generate either .png or .svg images of trees to be displayed on a webpage. These trees are generated from either raw .tre files (Newick format) or by using special .stk files which are processed by xrate to generate trees.

The hackathon revealed that consistent behavior from NEXUS parsers is need in all of the Bio* toolkits as well as many of the primary analysis tools in phylogenetics. Rather than reimplement NEXUS parsing in each language, we could develop multiple language bindings to a common parsing library. NCL (the Nexus Class Library) is a flexible C++ library for supporting the parsing of NEXUS. Core tasks (such as tokenizing and reporting errors) are handled well, though not all public blocks have been handled. NCL is already used in several C/C++ programs (e.g. Brownie, TreeView) and is soon to be used by MrBayes4 and GARLI for NEXUS importing. The CIPRES NEXUS parser is also derived from a version of NCL ...

Who doesnt have a soft spot in their heart, if not their DVD collection, for The Andy Griffith Show? The denizens of Mayberry have been with many of us our entire lives. For most of America, The Andy Griffith Show has become the template for any small rural town. The characters stand as prerequisite citizens in any said town. The town drunk, the local barber, the motherly little old lady, and the corner mechanic all look like Otis, Floyd, Aunt Bee, and Goober to most of us now.

COVID-19 has provided a vivid reminder of the power of biological threats. But the threat doesnt come from natural sources alone. Weaponized contagious diseases - which were abandoned by the United States, but developed in large numbers by the Soviet Union, right up until its collapse - have the potential to spread globally and kill just as many as an all-out nuclear war. For five years todays guest - Andy Weber - was the US Assistant Secretary of Defense responsible for biological and other weapons of mass destruction. While people primarily associate the Pentagon with waging wars, including most within the Pentagon itself, Andy is quick to point out that you cant have national security if your population remains at grave risk from natural and lab-created diseases. Andys current mission is to spread the word that while bioweapons are terrifying, scientific advances also leave them on the verge of becoming an outdated technology.

It seemed to me as an outsider that, generally speaking, these people each had their own illustration niche and hence were not in close competition with one another. Once in a while, though, if an artist was chosen by a client but was too booked up with other work, a salesman might in those early years offer as a substitute someone like Dorothy to fill in for Andy. Or Siebel who originated Mr. Clean right there at Rahl in the 50s , or possibly Muenchen could fill in for Dink Siegels semi-cartoon animated figures. That sort of thing. I dont recall this happening often though. Muenchen, an incredible talent whom Andy liked a great deal, was the car man. In a pinch, if Muench was unavailable, Roy Cragnolin might fill in for him.

Nature has created complex biological structures that exhibit intelligent behaviour through an evolutionary process. Thus, intelligence and evolution are intimately connected. This has inspired evolutionary computation (EC) that simulates the evolutionary process to develop powerful techniques such as genetic algorithms (GAs), genetic programming (GP), evolutionary strategies (ES) and evolutionary programming (EP) to solve real-world problems in learning, control, optimization and classification. GP discovers the relationship among data and expresses it as a LISP-S expression i.e., a computer program. Thus the goal of program discovery as a solution for a problem is addressed by GP in the framework of evolutionary computation. In this thesis, we address for the first time the problem of applying GP to mu1ticategory pattern classification. In supervised pattern classification, an input vector of m dimensions is mapped onto one of the n classes. It has a number of application areas such as remote ...
Today, clusters are widely used to execute numerical applications. Mechanisms are needed to ease cluster use and to take advantage of the cluster distributed resources. Process management mechanisms are very useful in this respect. Process duplication is needed for parallel application deployment, dynamic load balancing relies on process migration and process checkpoint/restart is needed to tolerate node failures during the execution of long-running applications. A kernel level approach allows to efficiently implement all these mechanisms. However, they are very complex to implement and to maintain. Nevertheless they are all based on a common concept: process virtualization which provides a mean to extract the state of a process from the operating system executed on each cluster node. This paper presents a process virtualization mechanism called ghost process, implemented at kernel level which can be used by system programmers to easily implement various process management mechanisms. The ghost process
Former Kids In The Hall member Bruce McCulloch wrote and directed this comedy about the romantic tribulations of a group of Toronto twenty-somethings whose relationships with their dogs are more stable and long-lasting than their romances with people. Nice guy Andy (Luke Wilson) gets dumped by his girlfriend Cheryl (Kathleen Robertson) when she meets another man (Gordon Currie); worst of all, Cheryl also ends up with custody of Andys dog. On the rebound, Andy meets Lorna (Natasha Henstridge), the host of a childrens TV show, but shes too obsessed with her dog Peanut to pay Andy much mind. Keiran (Kristin Lehman), on the other hand, is a bit too enthusiastic for Andy, leading to yet another short-lived relationship. Cheryl ends up taking her dog (formerly Andys dog) to a pet psychiatrist (Mark McKinney) who thinks that her promiscuity may be traumatizing the pooch. Meanwhile, Bruce McCulloch and Janeane Garofalo are cast against type as Jeff and Jeri, Andys cheerful and annoyingly romantic friends.

An elegant, masterful portrait of Andy Warhols life, character, and lasting influence by an eminent art critic.Danto . . . sums up the Pop masters evolution as both artist and persona. . . . It is, in essence, everything you need to dive deeper into Brillo boxes and Empire.-Rachel Wolff, The Daily Beast(Best Art and Photography Books of 2009) In a work of great wisdom and insight, art critic and philosopher Arthur Danto delivers a compact, masterful tour of Andy Warhols personal, artistic, and philosophical transformations. Danto traces the evolution of the pop artist, including his early reception, relationships with artists such as Jasper Johns and Robert Rauschenberg, and the Factory phenomenon. He offers close readings of individual Warhol works, including their social context and philosophical dimensions, key

To wrap up the show we run down a few of our ideas for new armies that can work along this theme. I play it safe with Chaos Dwarves crossing with Warriors of Chaos, Dark Elves and High Elves mixing nd finally a Vampire army that can also be Bretonnia or The Empire. Andy is more adventurus and talks about an army of Werewolves, Warriors of Chaos Marauders crossing over to Beastmen and Lizardman army with a Chaotic theme.. Here are a few pics of Andys army.. ...

By Brithna Today was clearly going to be an absolute disaster. There was already too much to do and too much going wrong for it to be a good day; and to make matters worse, Andy wasnt even at the office yet. Why wasnt Andy at the office yet? Because she was stuck here, at the doctors office with Miranda. Yes, the vision of perfection known as Miranda Priestly had a doctors appointment first thing this morning. And why was Andy here along for the ride? She had absolutely no freakin clue. May I ask you something? Andy asked as she tore through her messenger bag to retrieve her laptop. She was in desperate need for something to do. I suppose. Miranda replied as she stared straight ahead at the wall. She hated anything that had to do with a doctor. Why am I here? Surprisingly enough Andy felt pretty okay with asking that question. After everything that had happened last year, Miranda Priestly no longer scared her. In fact, Andy was so unafraid that she spoke her mind whenever it was ...

We discuss aspects of the extended geometric quantization of one of the simplest and yet interesting examples of ∞-Chern-Simons theory, namely 2d Chern-Simons theory and here specifically the case induced by a binary and non-degenerate invariant polynomial, namely the Lie integrated version of the Poisson sigma-model.. It turns out that several aspects of the extended geometric quantization of this 2d theory are known in the literature already, albeit in disguise: the 2-plectic moduli stack of fields is equivalently what in the literature is known as a symplectic groupoid and its higher geometric quantization is essentially what is known as the geometric quantization of symplectic groupoids.. The suggestion that there should be such a relation is contained already in (Cattaneo-Felder 01), but at the time of that writing the geometric quantization of symplectic groupoids had not been performed yet.. To some extent in the following we review the traditional geometric quantization of symplectic ...
As a child actor, Ron Howard was busy even before The Andy Griffith Show. He appeared in television programs in the late 1950s and in 1960, including Playhouse 90, The Twilight Zone, and Dennis the Menace, among others.. In 1959 Howard, at 5 years of age, appeared on the television program General Electric Theater. Hosted by actor and future U.S. president Ronald Reagan, his appearance on the program led to his role as Opie Taylor the following year, as Howard told the Archive of American Television.. I guess I didnt have much of a credit, but Ronald Reagan had seen the episode and at the end, he just ad-libbed this thing and said, Special thanks to little Ronnie Howard who did a wonderful job as Barnaby or something like that, he recalled.. And that led [The Andy Griffith Show producer] Sheldon Leonard to call my agent and say, Im doing a series with Andy Griffith and we need a son.. ...

EDITORS NOTE: We finally come to Part 4 of Andy Synns review of the year in metal. In previous posts, Andy identified the Great, the Good, and the Disappointing releases of 2010. In this final installment, Andy lists his Top 10 favorite albums of the year as well as a critical Top 10 list. Turns out that the same album is in the top spot on both lists.]. Well ladies and gentlemen, finally we come to my personal top ten of the year, followed by my objective, critical top ten.. The first list contains the albums that I consider my favourites, in some cases regardless of relative quality, and that I have gone to for listening pleasure most frequently this year. I love these albums despite (and in some cases because of) their flaws.. The second list contains the albums which I think were the most artistically ambitious and successful, performed the best, and contained the best and most interesting examples of song-writing as art. These are the albums which I feel set a gold-standard for objective ...

A video encoder for encoding a series of groups of frames with an adjustable quantization step, and a method for adjusting the quantization step. The method tracks a complexity parameter of the encoded scenes, and computes a first quantization value in dependence upon the generated complexity parameter. The method further computes a minimum and a maximum step size in dependence upon a number of the bits that have already been generated, and upon the preset target number of bits. The quantization step for the next group of pictures is set in accordance with the first quantization value, but subject to the range defined by the minimum and maximum step sizes. The method further adjusts the minimum and the maximum step sizes.
The title character, whose strip usually appeared on the front cover, was Buster himself. He was originally billed as Buster: Son of Andy Capp; Andy Capp is the lead character of the eponymous Daily Mirror newspaper strip, and Buster wore a similar flat cap to reinforce the connection. In early issues Buster often referred to his father, and Andy was seen in the comic (attempting to find a gas leak in three frames of the 18 June 1960 issue; shown in two drawn photographs in the 2 July issue that same year, the first of which was displayed by Busters mum with the pronouncement, Its a photo of Buster taken with Andy! You can see hes got his dads fine straight nose). Busters mum was often referred to by name, and was consistently drawn to resemble Andys wife Flo. The connection with Andy Capp was gradually forgotten over time, and Andy no longer appeared in the strip by the mid-1960s. From 1965 the strip instead featured Buster in two long-running series: as lead character in the extremely ...

A good friend of mine was diagnosed with a bone cancer called Osteosarcoma in February 2008. This is a rare form of bone cancer only affects about 400 people per year in the UK, mostly children. Andy is 43 and his cancer affected, or should that be infected? - the top of his right Femur close to his Knee.. Since his diagnosis, Andy has had the affected bone removed and a Titanium replacement put in its place - its not quite Bionic. Andys tumour was removed successfully but has a secondary symptom on his Lungs called metastases (tumours). Andy had open chest surgery to remove as many of the metastases as possible and has undergone a series of Chemotherapy and Radiotherapy treatments and is currently (June 2009) having his last dose..

Andy Pernetti, a recovering alcoholic, speaks on the importance of having fun in sobriety and his way of achieving it. When Andy came into the program he found that being of service set him on a new journey of recovery. Andy organizes events such as camping trips and movie nights as a way of achieving fun and new experiences in sobriety. The creative solutions meeting Andy sometimes attends is a meeting focused on how to have fun in sobriety. Andy describes how he feels blessed with all the friends and emotions he has in sobriety that werent present in his addiction.. Andy goes on to describe his 1 year party as a rave with two battling DJs and energy drink jello shots. He did this to prove the point that ones lifestyle does not have to change by being sober aside from the not drinking. One can have as much if not more fun when sober than when drinking or using.. ...

Right in the window facing the street, musician Peter Gavett was setting up. Normally part of a trio, Gavett was playing solo acoustic with a mix of covers and original tunes.. His audience was small when I was there around 7 p.m. A few guys gathered at the bar sipping beers and taking shots of Jim Beam. A couple sat at one of the pub tables.. It was a quiet night, but Ive seen the small bar at Andys quite full. In fact, I remember a happy hour when co-workers and I overtook the bars long picnic-style table, and other customers filled the rest of the barstools.. When I bellied up to the bar, I was pleasantly surprised that Shipyard Pumpkinhead was still on tap and one of the nights happy hour specials. I grabbed a pint of that and started perusing the menu.. Andys has about two dozen offerings for red, white and sparkling wines, a selection of Honeymaker Meads, and 10 beers on tap with even more in the bottle. Of course, it also has a fully stocked bar and is willing to mix up any drink ...

Seoul Taco co-owner David Choi built his food truck into one of the citys most popular, then took a wild leap and opened a brick-and-mortar restaurant with the same name in The Loop this past fall. He still hits the road, though. In fact, one of his prize gigs is feeding the St. Louis Rams - a group whom he said can really put it away.. What did you do before you bought a food truck? [Co-owner] Andy [Heck] and I had to quit our jobs. I was a valet attendant at St. Marys Hospital, and Andy was in mortgages. I had just saved for six months to buy a car, and then to buy the truck, I had to sell it! We had to go to the East Coast to get the truck; we finally found it in Philadelphia. It used to be a Philly cheesesteak wagon.. I imagine you use Seoul Tacos new brick-and-mortar locations kitchen to prep everything for the truck each day? Yes, that was one of the main purposes of getting the brick-and-mortar location, to cater the truck. Our truck is parked right behind the store. Tomorrow were ...
Alice Cooper is set to sell off his prized Andy Warhol art piece at the 2021 Fall Larsen Art Auction. The Little Electric Chair acrylic and silkscreen on canvas piece from Warhols Death and Disaster series is valued between $2.5 - $4.5 million (£1.8 - £3.2 million), and could become the highest selling painting in the state of Arizona. Alice rediscovered the piece in the garage of his Scottsdale, Arizona compound, revealing he had completely forgotten he owned it. Cooper and Warhol became unlikely pals in New York City in the 1970s. One day a few years ago, I was talking to Dennis Hopper who said he was selling a couple of his Warhols, the rock star shared. I said, Wait a minute, I think I have a Warhol somewhere. So I went digging around and found it and it was in perfect condition. I mean it was sort of in a time capsule, which I think Andy would have loved because he loved doing the time capsule as an art piece in and of itself. So, there it was, it had lived by itself for many years. We
Just over a year ago, a report surfaced suggesting former Android king Andy Rubin was considering re-entering the phone business. The report talked about Rubin assembling a team to potentially build out a new company, yet there has been almost zero follow-up since. Today, Bloomberg is reporting that things are very serious on the Andy Rubin smartphone front and we may see a phone (as well as other products) as early as this year. According to this report, Rubins new company is called Essential and is made up of roughly 40 people, many of which have been brought in from Apple and Google. Essential will attempt to compete in the top tier smartphone segment, but the goal is to create a whole ecosystem of devices that all play well together (think both mobile and smart home stuff).. Rubin apparently spoke with wireless carrier execs at CES last week about a high-end phone that Essential is working on, one that will have an edge-to-edge display without bezel (likely larger than 5.5-inches), along ...

Finally they did a bone marrow test and Andy had histiocytic sarcoma. This liquid in his stomach was from the proteins not getting to his body he had a very very low red blood cell count. They told us Andy had 3 to 4 weeks to live when he left the hospital that Friday and he died 30 hours later.

I awakened yesterday to a battle raging downstairs, screams of unhappiness rising up the stairwell. It was odd, they usually play together nicely in the morning now. I sprang up to intercede, and found the problem was about sticks. Joey is very fond of his sticks, which he uses for air writing, and has them about the house. Andy is also fond of sticks, which he uses as most children do: swords, guns, magic wands, whatever strikes his fancy. Apparently Joey wanted a long, thin stick Andy had, instead of the shorter (but still pretty long), thicker stick in his hand. He was screaming that Andy has stolen his stick. Andy was upset because he hadnt stolen the stick (for once), but it was one he had gotten from the yard the day before. In trying to be fair, there was little I could do other than inspect the stick and note that it was, indeed, the one Andy had fetched from the yard the day before- which, of course, settled nothing. Assuring Joey he could go out and get a similar stick was of no ...
The Band: Array. setting: thursday evening at Andys house. our senior year. 1987.. band members: Andy- guitar and backing vocal, Johnny- bass, Daniel-drums, Rebecca- lead vocal, Kimmee- keyboards, backing vocal. shit, boys, we are going to rock the house saturday night, andy exclaimed as he gave me a hi-five. he turned to do the same with johnny but realized he wasnt paying any attention. johnny was, as per usual, in his own little world, sitting back, smoking a joint and staring out at nothing.. a little perturbed by johnnys lack of enthusiasm for the upcoming gig, andy picked up his guitar and played an intricate arpeggio that he had been working on the past few days. andy was a lanky rich boy whos mom was never home and usually had the whole house to himself after school to play loud music in. he was the class clown and was even voted the funniest senior in the yearbook that year. i played a couple of warmup drum fills on the tom-toms and then turned to andy and asked are you sure we ...
Andy Warhols work explores the relationship between artistic expression, celebrity culture and advertising. Andy Warhol was a Roman Catholic who apparently attended Mass almost daily throughout his life but didnt publish the fact. While Andy Warhols artwork may definitely give a mysterious impression, he was not only a regular church attender, but also consistently served at soup kitchens. Although I do not know Andy Warhol nor his life style personally, I have heard many negative descriptions of it. However, I have also heard very positive evaluations of his contributions, and I do think his efforts at using such a mundane everyday symbol as GE in his artwork The Last Supper, might be pointing to the hope of more meaning. By doing this, it would seem that he was hoping to integrate the sacred and the secular more. With the backdrop of Leonardo da Vincis famous The Last Supper, we see imposed a commercial sign, GE and a dove. Andy Warhol appears to be pointing to the symbol of the ...
Yesterday was a joyful and hard day all at the same time as it marked the 13th birthday of my first litter at Ersehnen. I am happy to report that I am still in touch with 3 owners of pups from this litter and they are doing well - a little slower but well. Tempering this joy was the fact that my boy from this litter is no longer with me. Andy, you can see him in the header, was the love of my life and he left some mighty big paw prints to fill. He was my constant companion, confidante, and protector. Jay took him out hunting pheasants - 9 yr old Andys first time out on birds - they got one which Andy kind of retrieved. But what made the trip memorable for Jay was Andy telling him off for not shooting the ducks flying over head. Andy would look up at the ducks, look at Jay bark then back at the ducks all the while Jay was trying to explain that the ducks were too high and out of range. I wish I had a picture of that as I can just see the expression on the Old Mans face during this exchange. He ...
Honeywell said Wednesday it has been awarded a $15 million smart grid project by Connexus Energy, Minnesotas largest customer-owned electric cooperative, to deploy advanced smart grid technology to improve electricity service and reliability, and help the utilitys 130,000 members better manage their energy consumption.. Under the project, Honeywell will install more than 138,000 of its EnergyAxis connected meters and its new SynergyNet mesh networking platform for the utility.. When completed in 2018, the fully integrated system will provide Connexus Energy with real-time data on customers energy consumption for more accurate billing, better management of usage, and the ability to more accurately detect meter tampering and outages for faster recovery, according to Honeywell.. Instead of relying on time-consuming manual meter data collection, Connexus Energy, whose service territory spans seven counties and covers 1,000 square miles in the northern part of the Minneapolis-St. Paul metro area, ...

You cant imagine how much work goes into this little itty-bitty breakfast, said Andy, whos known around town for his organizational prowess and keen eye for detail.. Serving about 1,000 guests is hardly itty-bitty. Planning begins each January, with meetings cranking up to two a month in June. When a vendor last year couldnt deliver the promised number of sausages, Andy went scrambling to make up the sausage shortage. As usual, he came through, but after seven years of working the grills, hes thinking about passing off his spatula to any one of a number of understudies hes been grooming.. We only get two or three hours of sleep that night, Andy said about the big upcoming event. Were up at about three in the morning, prepping and getting the coffee going.. Then again, he could be back in 2012 because Andy is someone who habitually likes to jump from the fire (the tax season) into the frying pan, cooking up all those sausages and pancakes and serving the perfect breakfast that ...

Andy: No, not at all. Not even close. Like I mentioned earlier, we deliberately burn and cut down hundreds of thousands of potential bonsai every year. You have to look at the scale of the landscape. In the National Forest system itself there are over 193 million acres. For comparison the whole state of Pennsylvania is about 44 million acres. And this does not include The National Park system, National Monuments, BLM lands or state forest lands. And one thing I wanted to mention is that a wild landscape is not the only landscape that contains bonsai. Im completely flaberggasted that someone doesnt start a bonsai business just buying old landscaping plants and potting them. There are a zillion old planted junipers out there that are too big for the yard and theyve already had 20 years of pruning. If I had to move into town somewhere Id put an ad in the paper offering to buy unwanted landscaping plants. I called a landscaper in Rapid City and asked if he ever removed large, old plants and if ...
