HFD revamping high rise response – Honolulu, Hawaii news, sports & weather

The Honolulu Fire Department is revamping techniques firefighters use to respond to high rise fires. New training tactics were developed after the department re-evaluated how crews responded during the Marco Polo fire in 2017. HFD says it now requires all crews to use bigger hoses. For decades, crews used a 1.5 inch wide hose that pumps out 125 gallons of water per minute. The department’s 2.5 inch hose is now capable of pumping out 250 gallons a minute. But it comes with some setbacks. The larger hose weighs 125 pounds compared to the smaller hoses’ 38 pounds. “It’s not so easy to throw around. It starts to get taxing on you. It’s wider on your hands so you don’t get to grip it as easily and it’s a lot more rigid. It just tires you out. Fatigue happens so much faster,” said HFD Capt. Joey Condlin. HFD also acquired special nozzles designed by firefighters in New York. Its a device fire officials say can be a game changer. Its used when crews are unable to get to the floor where the fire is burning. It can quickly put out the blaze from the floor below. During the Marco Polo fire, multiple companies struggled to put out the blaze r...

I love jewelry. I love making and I love to wear it and look at it.

I love jewelry. I love making and I love to wear it and look at it. I like to see the work of other artisans becoming creative, but I never expected to write about jewelry or the art of making it for CleanTechnica – the way I usually save it for my blog. However, this story about a Tesla owner and his wife definitely needs to be shared. Jewelry is used for many things. Gemstones and jewelry have been a part of humanity since history was passed on orally. The ancients would make talismans made of feathers, bones, shells, and pebbles – pebbles that were actually gems. In these ancient times, jewelry had one important use – as amulets for protection against bad luck and illness. Many gems and minerals have these legends, as Tiger Eye is seen as a stone of protection while traveling. Legends, tradition and jewelry are often mixed together. The oldest piece of jewelry found to date has been dated to around 25,000 years old. It was a simple necklace made from fish bones found in a cave in Monaco. Jewelry has had many meanings over time, both for practical use and for religious use. Speaking of the multifaceted use of jewelry, a Tesla owner and his wife have made a different use for a ...

The Best Dairy-Free Probiotic Supplements + Essential Label Reading Tips

This is the flagship post in our dairy-free probiotics section, which I will continue to update. Finding dairy-free probiotic supplements used to be a challenge, but these days there are quite a few options. Technically, probiotics themselves are free of all food. They’re live bacteria and yeasts that occur naturally in our digestive tracts. But two primary food issues can arise with probiotic supplements. Supplements often contain fillers, binders, and other types of ingredients to bulk them up and create a functional pill. Getting live bacteria to our guts without a transport system would be next to impossible. But these ingredients can include food, like dairy. Most of the time it’s lactose (milk sugar), but other dairy ingredients might be used. Nonetheless, the ingredients should be clearly visible on the label. And the probiotics themselves must be grown on a medium. This is often dairy. The bacteria is removed from the medium, and in theory shouldn’t be problematic for most people with a dairy issue. The bacteria itself doesn’t contain properties, like proteins, of the dairy it was grown on. However, there can be a concern for trace cross-contamination, and vegans might o...

2019 Moto Guzzi Audace Carbon Guide • Total Motorcycle

AUDACE CARBON IS THE MOTO GUZZI WITH THE STRONGEST AND MOST REBELLIOUS CHARACTER. IT IS A MUSCLE-BIKE DESIGNED TO EMPHASIZE THE PERFORMANCE OF THE “MADE IN MANDELLO” 1400 CC BIG BLOCK. eval(ez_write_tag([[300,250],’totalmotorcycle_com-medrectangle-3′,’ezslot_12′,192,’0′,’0′])); No other Moto Guzzi expresses that dark soul already introduced on the Moto Guzzi V7 II Stone and reconfirmed by the majestic MGX-21 better than the Audace Carbon.
