But for now, the CBO’s report is the official projection of what would happen under President Trump and the GOP’s plan.

Florida vaccine site overrun after false rumors said all could come

first_imgAdvertisementThe site, run by the Federal Emergency Management Agency, administers 500 doses per day. It had enforced Gov. Ron DeSantis’ rules Saturday morning, but when it became clear not enough eligible people would arrive, the workers invited anyone in for a shot. That is not unusual — many drugstores, for example, will inject anyone in the store at closing time if they have leftover vaccines that would spoil otherwise.Social media spread the news Saturday and people came from miles to the small town on the Florida peninsula’s southern tip to get their shots. Florida nursing homes report COVID-19 infection rates nearly double the national average June 16, 2021 FLORIDA CITY, Fla. — A Florida vaccination site had so few eligible takers Saturday that it started inoculating any adult who wanted a shot rather than let the vaccine on hand go to waste.Word spread and on Sunday the Florida City site was overwhelmed, particularly after local state Sen. Annette Taddeo incorrectly tweeted that the federally run site would again take all comers. The Democrat, who was the party’s lieutenant governor candidate in 2014, later deleted that tweet and corrected herself.Police had to calm the crowd Sunday when the site again enforced the state’s eligibility rules: 65 and older; frontline medical workers and police officers, teachers and firefighters over 50; and younger people with a physician’s note saying they would be endangered if they caught the virus.According to the Miami Herald, a Florida City police officer through a megaphone told 200 people waiting in line, “If you do not meet the criteria, you will not be vaccinated today.” Vaccines must be refrigerated at extremely cold temperatures and used that day once they are removed.

Physics Of Sound Is Topic Of May 26 CU Wizards Show

first_img Published: May 9, 2001 Share Share via TwitterShare via FacebookShare via LinkedInShare via E-mail The scientific aspects of sound and air pressure will be explained when CU Wizard Michael Dubson presents his show “Boom! The Physics of Sound and Air Pressure,” on Saturday, May 26, at 9:30 a.m. in Duane Physics, room G1B30. During the free hour-long show, Dubson, who is a senior instructor in the physics department at the University of Colorado at Boulder, will implode a 50-gallon steel drum using air pressure, create a sonic boom with a bullwhip and stage a tug-of-war with the pressure of the atmosphere. Dubson and the audience will explore the sounds made by several exotic musical instruments including an electronic theremin, which emits sounds when a hand is waved in the air near its antenna. The audience also will learn how sound waves are made, why they can be heard and what makes some sounds “musical.” Dubson said he will be handing out colored cards to the audience at the beginning of the show, and they will vote on answers to questions asked by raising colored cards. Other highlights of the show include an exploding hydrogen balloon, a strobe light on a vibrating drumhead and a bed of nails. CU Wizards is a monthly series during the academic year that introduces topics in astronomy, chemistry and physics. Though intended primarily for students in grades five through nine, the shows are educational and entertaining to persons of any age. Dubson was one of two CU-Boulder faculty members featured in an educational program that aired on Denver’s CBS television station KCNC-TV last November. The two-week series “Convection Connection” featured News4 anchor Larry Green, Alex Weaver, former K-12 outreach director at CU’s Cooperative Institute for Research in Environmental Sciences, and Dubson. The award-winning series featured experiments to explain the scientific concept of convection. The final CU Wizards show of the spring, “Black Holes,” is on Saturday, June 16, at 9:30 a.m. and 11:30 a.m. The show will feature Professor Andrew Hamilton of the astrophysical and planetary sciences department at CU-Boulder. Free parking for the May 26 show is available in lot 169 northeast of Folsom Stadium off Folsom Street, lot 396 off Stadium Drive, lot 436 east of the Engineering Center and lot 308 south of Regent Drive and west of Kittredge Loop Road. Parking also is available in the Euclid Avenue Autopark for a nominal fee. Anyone with a disability or special need should notify the physics office at (303) 492-6952 a few days prior to the show.

Water rates to increase by 5 percent

first_imgHomeNewsCity CouncilWater rates to increase by 5 percent Nov. 29, 2016 at 8:20 amCity CouncilWater rates to increase by 5 percentMatthew Hall5 years agocitycity councildaily pressSanta MonicaSanta Monica City Councilsanta monica daily presssanta monica water rateswaterwater ratesSM water rates  BY MATTHEW HALLWater rates will increase by five percent in 2017 resulting in an average increase of about $2 per month for the average residential user.The increase is less than the 9 percent initially scheduled for the year and Council chose to adjust the cost at their Nov. 22 meeting after hearing revenues increased this year while costs were below expectations.Revenues for the water fund came in at about 2.2 million higher than the budget while expenses were about $16 million below budget. The largest cost saving came from unfinished infrastructure projects and staff said theCouncil previously approved five annual 9 percent rate increases in starting in 2015. While the first increase was at the full 9 percent, the 2016 increase was only 5 percent and staff said a smaller increase in 2017 would cover costs for the system.“The recommended rate adjustment would be sufficient to allow the City to fund necessary operating and capital programs; to deliver potable water to Santa Monica customers reliably, safely and sustainably in compliance with federal and state regulations; and stay on track to achieve water self-sufficiency as planned by 2020,” said the staff report.Gil Borboa Water Resources Manager at City of Santa Monica said money from the increase will be used to facilitate repairs to the city’s system, specifically, repair and replacement of water pipes.Santa Monica’s pipes have a lifespan of about 100 years and the industry standard is to replace enough pipe per year to ensure the entire system is replaced within the 100-year lifespan. The rate increase will support the repair schedule while also paying for improvements and upgrades that will focus on water self-sufficiency.Santa Monica currently imports a portion of its water from Los Angeles and local officials want to end that arrangement by 2020.Borboa said existing and future projects are on track to meet the need provided the city can maintain the water savings it has secured during the recent shortage.“Due to the community’s exceptional response to the mandated state drought water use restrictions and implementation of the city’s own Stage 2 water shortage response plan, the citywide water demand has dropped substantially,” he said.According to Borboa, upgrades are needed to ensure the city not only becomes water independent, but is able to maintain that independence for the long term.“As we work towards 2020 self-sufficiency we continue to address the longer term objective of remaining self-sufficient,” he said. “In other words, when we get to self-sufficiency by 2020, that doesn’t mean we’re done and we stop there.”The City is exploring construction of new wells, securing expanded or new treatment facilities, expanded surveys of existing water resources and new water storage projects as tools to meet the 2020 goal.As part of long-term planning efforts Santa Monica will be working with Beverly Hills and Los Angeles to evaluate and manage the local groundwater supply. The three municipalities are required to form a new agency under a state law that mandates better management of ground water resources. The agency will work with private well owners to understand how much water is being used for private projects, like golf courses, and to implement more stringent controls on the construction of private wells.Water Rates Santa [email protected] :citycity councildaily pressSanta MonicaSanta Monica City Councilsanta monica daily presssanta monica water rateswaterwater ratesshare on Facebookshare on Twitteradd a commentScotty Claus is back with rental Xmas trees and a mission to spread peace and joyService Season for the LionsYou Might Also LikeFeaturedNewsDraft Housing Element released to publicBrennon Dixson2 weeks agoFeaturedNewsRent Board announces general adjustment effective SeptemberBrennon Dixson3 weeks agoFeaturedNewsCommissioners talk diversity, or a lack thereofBrennon Dixson3 weeks agoFeaturedNewsSMMUSD breaks down budget revisionsBrennon Dixson3 weeks agoFeaturedNewsCity and Coalition settle legal battleBrennon Dixson3 weeks agoFeaturedNewsCity Manager selection process beginsBrennon Dixson4 weeks agolast_img read more

Rakuten strikes RCP deal with Ligado

first_img Diana Goovaerts Rakuten Mobile secured what appeared to be one of the first publicly announced commercial deals for its virtualised, cloud-native mobile communications platform, with US satellite company Ligado Networks agreeing to use it as the basis for a 5G private network service.In a memorandum of understanding, the companies said they would begin developing a template for Ligado Networks’ product in the current quarter, using the Rakuten Communications Platform (RCP) as a foundation and working with partners to set a timeline for trials.The companies also pledged to team with enterprise customers to further “advanced use cases” and settle on a technology stack for eventual service launches, ultimately aiming to accelerate deployments of private networks based on open technology.Doug Smith, Ligado Networks president and CEO, stated the combination of its “know-how and licensed L-Band spectrum” with RCP and open RAN equipment would allow it to “create a novel blueprint for delivering new efficiencies to US companies” looking to deploy private networks.Rakuten Mobile launched its RCP product in June 2020, and later inked a reseller deal with Tech Mahindra. In September 2020, Telefonica expressed interest in using the platform, but did not make a firm commitment.Ligado Networks faced continued objections to a plan to deploy private networks and IoT services for the enterprise sector, but the Federal Communications Commission recently ruled the company could proceed with rollouts while it considered a challenge seeking to overturn the approval.
