Wilmingtons Tony Marra An OffDuty Watertown Firefighter Helped Save Life In Wilmington

first_imgWILMINGTON, MA — Wilmington resident Tony Marra, a firefighter for the city of Watertown, is being heralded for his off-duty heroism in response to a serious rollover car accident on Route 38, near the Wilmington Plaza, on the morning of Wednesday, July 18.Around 8:20am, a 38-year-old woman was driving a 2012 Nissan Rogue northbound on Main Street when she reportedly veered to avoid a vehicle pulling out of the Speedway parking lot. Her vehicle rolled over multiple times, landing on its roof.Tony Marra, an off-duty Watertown firefighter, witnessed the accident and quickly jumped into action to assist the driver.“Marra gained entry into the overturned vehicle, helped extricate the patient, and removed the patient from the immediate danger of the running overturned vehicle in an active roadway,” according to Wilmington Fire Lieutenant Robert Varney. “When I reached the patient, Marra had already given the patient a rapid trauma assessment, and had successfully calmed the patient down from an excitable state due to the severity of the accident.”The driver was transported to a local medical facility with non-life threatening injuries. Her vehicle suffered major damage and was towed. Mass Highway was contacted to remove a significant amount of shattered glass from the roadway. Traffic was backed up in the area, with northbound traffic rerouted through the Wilmington Plaza paring lot and one of the two southbound lanes temporarily closed.“Firefighter Marra did not have to stop and help, yet he did not hesitate to jump into action and provide lifesaving care by removing the patient from immediate danger,” Varney wrote in a letter to Watertown Fire Chief Robert Quinn. “Firefighter Marra provided himself an exemplary model of a civil servant, and a Firefighter that you and the town of Watertown should be proud of.”“In a time where the media sometimes only focuses on the negative actions of firefighters, they miss out on the day-to-day heroic actions of firefighters,” added Varney.Rollover crash on July 18 (courtesy of WPD)Like Wilmington Apple on Facebook.

Executive magistrates to run mobile court till 10 October

first_imgExecutive magistrates will be able to run mobile courts in the country till 10 October as the Appellate Division of the Supreme Court on Wednesday adjourned the matter till that day, reports BSS.”Mobile courts run by executive magistrate will remain adjourned till 10 October,” said the apex court full bench headed by Chief Justice Surendra Kumar Sinha.The Appellate Division came up with the order accepting a time plea from the state.Earlier on 1 August, the apex court had allowed the state two weeks to run mobile courts by the executive magistrates.The Appellate Division on 4 July had extended for two more weeks its stay on the High Court order that declared illegal the running of mobile courts by executive magistrates.Earlier on 21 May, the apex court extended the stay for the first time till 2 July. The chamber judge of the Appellate Division on 14 May stayed the High Court order on 21 May, sending the matter to Appellate Division’s regular bench for further hearing.On 11 May, the High Court passed the initial order, pronouncing some 14 sections and sub-sections of the concerned act unconstitutional.A High Court division bench comprising justice Moyeenul Islam Chowdhury and justice Ashish Ranjan Das passed the order, declaring absolute the rule issued earlier in this regard.The court came up with the order after holding hearing on writ petitions filed by three people who were earlier convicted by mobile courts.”The court ordered to cancel their sentences and refund Tk 1000000 realised from one of them as fine within 90-day of receiving the copy of this judgment,” Barrister Hassan MS Azim, counsel for the petitioners, told the newsmen on that day.”From now on, the government cannot run mobile courts by executive magistrates. The government has to amend the law or formulate a new law if it wants to run mobile courts,” he had added.last_img read more

Congress To Take Up DACA Border Wall As It Advances On 2018

first_img Share Andrew Harnik/APPresident Trump, with House Speaker Paul Ryan of Wisconsin, Senate Majority Whip John Cornyn, R-Texas., and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell of Kentucky, speaks to reporters after a retreat where GOP leaders made plans for 2018.It may be a new year, but Congress plans to spend most of January wrapping up old business left over from 2017.Congressional leaders are promising to head off any chance of a government shutdown well before the Jan. 19 deadline, but a nearly yearlong fight over President Trump’s demands to build a wall along the U.S.-Mexico border could threaten those plans.Democrats want the upcoming spending bill to also permanently protect the roughly 700,000 immigrants who are in the country illegally after being brought to the U.S. as children. They stand to lose the protected status they were given under the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program, or DACA.Trump rescinded that program last year, setting an expiration date in March, and congressional Republicans have agreed to work with Democrats on a new law to grant rights to those immigrants. Those talks appeared to be progressing over the holidays, but Trump’s demands that the deal include money to build a border wall could prevent an agreement.Trump repeated his demands Saturday during a news conference held during a weekend planning retreat with congressional leaders at Camp David.“We want the wall,” Trump said. “The wall is going to happen, or we’re not going to have DACA.”But Democrats are threatening to block any spending bill that includes funding for a wall — even if that means shutting down the government. Illinois Sen. Dick Durbin, the No. 2 Senate Democrat, said Friday that Democrats would not accept the latest offer from Republicans because it included $18 billion to build a wall. “President Trump has said he may need a good government shutdown to get his wall,” Durbin said. “With this demand, he seems to be heading in that direction.”Alabama Democrat Doug Jones was sworn in last week, which leaves Republicans with just 51 votes in the Senate. GOP leaders will need votes from at least nine Senate Democrats to pass any spending or immigration legislation. To do that, negotiators will have to balance Democrats’ calls for citizenship for all people protected under DACA against Trump’s demands for border security and the construction of a border wall.That standoff comes at a critical moment in the talks. Lawmakers are set to return to Washington on Monday with hopes of finalizing an immigration and spending bill while continuing talks to reauthorize a controversial wiretapping program, fully fund children’s health insurance and send billions in disaster aid to roughly half a dozen states and U.S. territories.Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., told reporters on Thursday that he is confident that negotiators will reach a deal without the risk of a shutdown.“Nobody wants to shut the government down on either side,” McConnell said. “I’m optimistic we’ll get a resolution to many of those issues before Jan. 19.”Finishing that work in just two weeks would be ambitious under any circumstances, but the talks come as Congress is also gearing up for the start of an election season that will determine which party controls both the House and the Senate.Congressional negotiators were nearing an agreement in late December on the spending portion of the talks, but leaders have been unwilling to finalize any single portion of the deal until all other elements are complete.That strategy is based on a political bet that a big, broad deal will include so many elements that nearly every lawmaker will be able to find something in the bill that they can support. That plan is particularly risky if lawmakers on either side try to add in politically motivated provisions — like abortion funding restrictions or means testing for government aid programs — known as poison pills.The House plans to kickstart action on some parts of the broader agreement early next week with a vote to extend a controversial wiretapping program authorized by Section 702 of the FISA Amendments Act.Leaders are also in talks over plans to extend the Children’s Health Insurance Program, which is set to expire in March, though some states may run out of funding sooner. The program generally enjoys bipartisan support and could be added to a big spending bill in hopes of making it more appealing to lawmakers who might be skittish about other parts of the deal.One group that may need some extra convincing are conservatives who are frustrated with Democrats’ demands to increase funding for domestic programs as part of any eventual spending deal. Democrats want the upcoming spending agreement to uphold a recent pattern of funding domestic programs at the same rate as military expenditures.Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., told reporters that cutting domestic funding would starve programs including health insurance for veterans and newly created initiatives to combat the opioid crisis. Schumer said there are a number of issues that have yet to be resolved, but like McConnell said he believes a deal is within reach.“Democrats are hopeful we can get this all done,” Schumer said. “We had very serious discussions with the Republican leadership in those areas, and now there will be staff discussions in the next few days trying to get those things done.”Copyright 2018 NPR.

Simulation shows its possible to move H2OC60 using electrical charge

first_img Two years ago, Japanese researchers Kei Kurotobi and Yasujiro Murata figured out a way to imbed a water molecule in a 60-atom fullerene (buckeyball)—they slit it open, inserted a single water molecule, then sealed it back up again, effectively trapping the water molecule inside—they called it H2O@C60. In this new effort, the researchers created a computer simulation which they claim shows what would happen if such a molecule were placed inside a nanotube and subjected to an electrical charge. Their efforts show, they say, that it would cause the fullerene (and water molecule) to move, in this case through a channel.David Lindley, in an article for the American Physical Society site Physics, says that the simulation the two researchers created takes into account all of the known properties of H2O@C60 and notes that the simulation treats the molecule as a single entity.After embedding the water molecule inside the fullerene, the researchers simulated putting the new structure inside of a carbon nanotube, essentially creating a channel to allow for movement of the fullerene along with its water molecule cargo. They then applied an electrical charge parallel to the nanotube. Doing so, the researchers found, caused the fullerene to move within the channel (and the water molecule inside to spin), carrying its cargo with it. Normally, applying an electrical charge to water molecules does not cause them to move (because they are neutrally charged)—instead a thermal driven motion known as libration occurs.In the simulation however, embedding a water molecule in a fullerene allows it to be driven through a channel using electric current, opening up the possibility of creating fullerenes that carry other chemicals through nanotubes—a process that could prove useful for applications such as delivering therapeutic drugs to ailing body parts, for example.Interestingly, the researchers found that if the charge was increased to 0.065 volts per angstrom, the direction of movement in the channel was reversed, though they can’t explain why.

( —Researchers Baoxing Xu and Xi Chen, working at Columbia University, have created a computer simulation that shows it’s possible to manipulate the movement of a 60-atom fullerene, with a water molecule trapped inside of it, using an electrical charge. They describe their simulation and results in their paper published in Physical Review Letters. A water molecule bestows electric polarity on the fullerene sphere that surrounds it, allowing the structure to be guided by an electric field, even though it remains electrically neutral.

Rev. Lett. 110, 156103 (2013) a single water molecule inside an endohedral fullerene provides an opportunity for manipulating the H2O@C60 through the encapsulated polar H2O molecule. Using molecular dynamic simulations, we propose a strategy of electrical-driven transport of H2O@C60 inside a channel, underpinned by the unique behavior of a water molecule free from a hydrogen-bonding environment. When an external electrical field is applied along the channel’s axial direction, steady-state transport of H2O@C60 can be reached. The transport direction and rate depend on the applied electrical intensity as well as the polar orientation of the encapsulated H2O molecule.
