Engineers at NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena are working to understand the cause of the issue.Called the Auxiliary Payload Sensor Suite (APSS), the sensors collect data on wind speed and direction, air temperature and pressure, and magnetic fields. Throughout each Martian day, or sol, InSight’s main computer retrieves data stored in APSS’ control computer for later transmission to orbiting spacecraft, which relay the data to Earth.APSS is in safe mode and unlikely to be reset before the end of the month while mission team members work toward a diagnosis. JPL engineers are optimistic that resetting the control computer may address the issue but need to investigate the situation further before returning the sensors to normal.JPL manages InSight for NASA’s Science Mission Directorate. InSight is part of NASA’s Discovery Program, managed by the agency’s Marshall Space Flight Center in Huntsville, Alabama. Lockheed Martin Space in Denver built the InSight spacecraft, including its cruise stage and lander, and supports spacecraft operations for the mission.A number of European partners, including France’s Centre National d’Études Spatiales (CNES) and the German Aerospace Center (DLR), are supporting the InSight mission. CNES provided the Seismic Experiment for Interior Structure (SEIS) instrument to NASA, with the principal investigator at IPGP (Institut de Physique du Globe de Paris). Significant contributions for SEIS came from IPGP; the Max Planck Institute for Solar System Research (MPS) in Germany; the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology (ETH Zurich) in Switzerland; Imperial College London and Oxford University in the United Kingdom; and JPL. DLR provided the Heat Flow and Physical Properties Package (HP3) instrument, with significant contributions from the Space Research Center (CBK) of the Polish Academy of Sciences and Astronika in Poland. Spain’s Centro de Astrobiología (CAB) supplied the temperature and wind sensors. 83 recommended0 commentsShareShareTweetSharePin it STAFF REPORT Pasadena’s ‘626 Day’ Aims to Celebrate City, Boost Local Economy Business News Make a commentcenter_img Community News Top of the News Subscribe STAFF REPORT First Heatwave Expected Next Week EVENTS & ENTERTAINMENT | FOOD & DRINK | THE ARTS | REAL ESTATE | HOME & GARDEN | WELLNESS | SOCIAL SCENE | GETAWAYS | PARENTS & KIDS Community News faithfernandez More » ShareTweetShare on Google+Pin on PinterestSend with WhatsApp,Virtual Schools PasadenaHomes Solve Community/Gov/Pub SafetyCitizen Service CenterPASADENA EVENTS & ACTIVITIES CALENDARClick here for Movie Showtimes Home of the Week: Unique Pasadena Home Located on Madeline Drive, Pasadena More Cool Stufflast_img read more

Red Beard’s Barbershop, landlord move out due to building structure concerns

first_imgby James Jordan, Sumner Newscow – The building housing Red Beard’s Barbershop at Washington and Lincoln Streets in Wellington was shut down and roped off Thursday.Rumor had it that the building had been determined not safe. City officials said the city code department had no contact with the owners and were not involved with the building in any way. They did say they had received a lot of calls Thursday morning about the building after it appeared roped off.The owner Jan Spevak, was not available for comment. She lived on the top floor of the building. She has moved out as well according to sources.Spencer Furman, who owns Red Beard’s Barber Shop on the ground floor, posted on his Facebook page that he was “as confused as everyone else,” but made it clear he had to move. He said he had been told the building was structurally unsafe because of earthquake damage.Furman said he had seen pieces of the ceiling falling so he knew there were problems, but closing it down was not expected.  He said a construction engineer had examined the property, and when he saw the landlords – the owners – moving out, he decided to do the same.He said the Wellington Heat had helped him with the moving process. Spencer said he is looking at a few places and hopes to be open for business again in a few days.“I am not done cutting. I just need some time to pick up the pieces and figure out where to put them down,” he wrote.Follow us on Facebook.Follow us on Twitter. Close Forgot password?

I hope the owners had earthquake insurance. Best wishes in your search for a new place.

At least the cost of repairs will be covered. Insurance may even cover his relocation expenses. Insurance has twice paid to repair cracks in my home due to earthquakes.

I doubt it. A least as the primary cause. I suspect water damage. BTW, doesn’t this building (the old Masonic Lodge building) have one of the oldest working elevators in the state? I thought I read that several years ago, maybe around the Wellington Centennial celebration time frame. Another tidbit: The building is on the Register of Kansas Historic Places.

Somerset’s Hannah is just champion!

first_img Tags: Champion of Champions, County, Frilford Heath, Hannah Woodley, Women Somerset’s Hannah Woodley is the toast of her county after winning a national title at Frilford Heath Golf Club, Oxfordshire.Woodley, from Enmore Park, is the new English Women’s County Champion of Champions, winning the title with a score of three-over par after 36 holes, with rounds of 71 72 on the Green course.She finished a shot ahead of Northumberland’s Ami Story (Bedlingtonshire), while Nottinghamshire’s Libby Kilbride (Dore & Totley) was third, a further five shots back.Woodley – or Hannah Grant, as she was known until her marriage last year – commented: “I’m over the moon. It’s an incredible feeling to win a big one.”The key to her success was her mental approach: “This is a thinker’s golf course, you don’t need to hit it miles, but you need to put it in the right position to hit the green.”She’s been Somerset county champion four times in the past five years and she’s played at women’s Champion of Champions since the event was started in 2016. “It’s a really good tournament, an amazing addition to the calendar – and I’d think that even if I didn’t get through! It’s a really good way to round off the season.”Woodley, 31, was a regular on the national amateur circuit, but when she worked as an emergency call handler for the police for over five years she had to cut back on her playing commitments. Five months ago she returned to the golfing world with a new job as a tournament controller for the PGA’s South West and Wales region.“It’s fantastic,” she said. “I’m enjoying being back around golf and it’s lovely to watch good golf – maybe that’s helped, it’s rubbed off on me!”For full scores click hereImage copyright Leaderboard Photography 9 Sep 2018 Somerset’s Hannah is just champion! last_img read more
