Bruce Spicer In House Hockey Program aims to make youth hockey affordable in Grand Forks – Grand Forks Herald

Posted: August 29, 2021 at 1:54 am

Growing up in Grand Forks during the 1950s, he had to borrow money to buy skates. He didn't have enough money to play for a team. So, he rounded up other children from the neighborhood to play in parks.

"He had nothing when he grew up," his daughter Katie Marcotte said. "It's kind of where I was as a young parent. Without him, my kids would not have played hockey. Now, both my boys are on full-ride college scholarships because of hockey. They love it. They get good grades. They keep their nose clean. Without my dad, it wouldn't have been possible. He made sure they had what they needed."

Bruce passed away unexpectedly last summer at the age of 68.

Soon after, two of Marcotte's co-workers at Berkshire Hathaway Khonsavanh Boettner and Jodi Danzl came up with the idea of starting a charity golf tournament in Bruce's honor. They asked Marcotte where she thinks the money should go.

After sleeping on it for a night, Marcotte knew the answer.

"It's got to be hockey," she said. "That's what my dad loved. He was always helping out kids at daycare so they could play hockey. He was at every hockey game for all of his grandkids. He played hockey himself. That's basically what his life was. He was always so giving, too. If he could help, he did."

The first golf tournament last summer raised $25,000. The second annual event was held Friday at King's Walk.

Proceeds are going to Grand Forks Youth Hockey, which is using the money to cut fees roughly in half for its youngest players, termites (ages 5-6) and mites (ages 7-8).

"The request to us is to use it to help people who otherwise wouldn't be able to afford it," Grand Forks Youth Hockey president Brad Lucke said. "They told us that they don't need any recognition for it. They just wanted hockey to be as accessible and affordable as possible. The credit is to them for wanting to give back to youth hockey and grow the game. As an organization, we need to strive to make sure we're doing everything on our part to make sure it has the biggest impact it can."

Because of the significant impact of the fundraiser, Grand Forks is renaming its termites and mites program to the 'Bruce Spicer In House Hockey Program.'

"It will have a huge impact on us as we try to grow the association," Lucke said. "It's a significant contribution."

Marcotte said the fundraiser to make youth hockey more affordable and accessible in Grand Forks is a perfect way to honor her father.

"It still kind of chokes me up," Marcotte said. "I just wish he was here to see it. At the tournament, people kept coming and coming and coming to donate. It showed what a stellar person my dad was and the people who loved him. Because of him, people were taking time out of their day to drop off a donation. It was overwhelmingly wonderful."

How you can prevent bugs from taking over your home – KGUN

Posted: at 1:54 am

TUCSON, Ariz. (KGUN) You have probably noticed more bugs than usual around the area. The busy monsoon is one of the main factors behind all the extra pests.

"Activity gets busier when it rains, but it really gets busier after it stops raining for a week or two," John Smalley, the owner of Pest Friends said.

Smalley says one of the biggest issues they are seeing right now are termites.

"You know it hasn't rained in two years, so the termites were really deep," Smalley said. This rain has really activated quite a bit of activity."

But for some of the more common insects like moths, spiders, and mosquitoes, you can take a few steps to help minimize their presence.

Smalley says that turning off outside lights will help immensely. Spiders and other insects are drawn to the light. He also recommends maintaining brush and other shrubs to keep some of the bugs away. You should also double check doors and windows to make sure they are fully shut. Smalley says that bugs like the cooler air inside of apartments and homes.

"If you take control of your environment, you can minimize your challenges," Smalley said. "We live in Tucson. In the wild west you are going to have challenges."

Public urged to keep savings in banks – The Manila Times

Posted: at 1:54 am

THE Bangko Sentral ng Pilipinas (BSP) encourages the people to keep their money in its supervised financial institutions, where they will be safe and secure following an incident where a delivery man's savings were nearly destroyed by termites.

Adonis Buemia, who has been delivering ice for 30 years, was able to buy a house, a brand-new tricycle, and even save about P50,000 from his 300-peso daily wage, according to the central bank.

"Despite being a solo parent and a primary caregiver to a special child, Buemia managed to save P100 or one-third of his daily income, which he tucked away inside a cabinet in his home," the BSP said.

"However, his savings almost disintegrated in the cabinet after termites feasted on them. Desperate to save his hard-earned cash, Buemia commented on the Facebook account of a program in a local TV station for help. In turn, the program referred his case to the BSP."

The Bangko Sentral's Currency Policy and Integrity Department pre-evaluated what was remained of the termite-infested bills right away. BSP Acting Deputy Director Nenette Malabrigo phoned the nearest bank to Buemia's home and endorsed the mutilated currency for replacement. Buemia eventually received his cash savings replacement on August 11 this year.

The reminder was issued after the BSP recently assisted in the replacement of roughly P50,000 worth of Buemia's damaged hard-earned savings.

The central bank said the size of the remaining bill must be 60 percent or three-fifths of the original size of the bill to qualify for replacement.

"To avoid damage caused by termites, water, and other elements, the BSP encourages the public to keep their savings in BSP-supervised financial institutions where they will be safe and secure," the central bank noted in a statement on Wednesday.

Interesting facts about the bushveld rain frog – Southlands Sun

Posted: at 1:54 am

ONE of the cutest types of frogs in South Africa are the rain frogs. The most common and widespread species of rain frog, is the bushveld rain frog, also known as the common rain frog. They are common throughout much of Southern Africa, all the way to Angola.

The bushveld rain frog measures about 6cm in length as an adult and spends most of its life underground. They are only active in the spring and summer months and usually only during rains. The rest of the time, it spends in an underground burrow where it can produce a mucus cocoon around itself for protection during the drier months.

They often live communally, with a few individuals sharing the same burrow.

The rain frog emerges from its burrow on warm, wet evenings to hunt for food. Their favorite diet is ants, termites and flying ants. They will often sit by an ants burrow, happily lapping up the ants and termites as they come out. They have a short sticky tongue, similar to that of a chameleon, which they use to catch their food.

Unlike most other frogs, the rain frog does not need pools of water in order to reproduce. They lay large eggs under ground, where the babies fully develop within the egg, emerging as tiny frogs.

These cute little grumpy-faced frogs have an even cuter self defense strategy. When threatened, they inflate their bodies to make themselves look bigger and will often also let out an angry little squeak.

Im not quite sure who this is supposed to intimidate, but us humans think its just too cute. My good friend, Dean Boshoff, filmed a rain frog preforming its intimidating threat call and has had over 23 million views on YouTube, if you want to see it, simply search for, worlds cutest frog, said Warren Dick.

‘There is always a fix’: Co-host of HGTV’s ‘Inside Out’ hopes show will ‘encourage the viewers to do home renovation projects’ – Albuquerque Journal

Posted: at 1:54 am

Mike Pyle, left, and Carmine Sabatella work together to transform the homeowners spaces in HGTVsInside Out. (Courtesy of HGTV)

Carmine Sabatella was always very fond of the programming that HGTV put on in the past.

In fact, he loved the platform, often finding inspiration from the shows.

Its not too far-fetched that the real estate agent and interior designer would want his own show on the network.

Mission accomplished.

Sabatella is coming off the first season of Inside Out, which is available on demand on rebroadcasts.

This show as a bucket list item of mine, he says. I wasnt sure how it would come to fruition. But it was serendipitous how it happened.

Inside Out, follows home renovations featuring Sabatella and Mike Pyle. The two begrudgingly agree on one thing a beautifully updated home requires great design indoors and out.

Sabatella, a real estate agent and interior designer, and Pyle, a landscape designer, each pitch their design plans to clients. The budget is set, so the pair must be persuasive to score a bigger chunk of the dollars to either max out the interiors or make the most of the outdoor spruce up.

More money for Sabatella will mean clients get all they want and more for their homes interior, while extra cash for Pyle will give the property wow-factor curb appeal and major outdoor living perks.

No matter who gets the majority of the renovation budget, both the interior and exterior will get a stunning transformation.

Sabatella enjoys working with homes built before the 1960s.

I dont love ultramodern homes, he says. When you buy a house that was built in 1918 and its still standing, thats a testament to how they built houses back then. In California, we have termites, and termites dont like old houses because the wood was sustainable and well treated. Theres a big difference in those homes.

Sabatella says undertaking a home renovation project is exciting, yet overwhelming.

He says working with Pyle on the show has built their professional relationship even more.

Of course, we dont agree on everything and see a project from two different views, he says. It was important for us to show that despite the difficulty of home renovations, there is always a fix.

Sabatellas journey to interior designer has been full of long roads.

Growing up in a traditional Italian family household who was known for their work in the world of restaurants, Sabatella took to the family business at a young age and opened his first restaurant with his father right after graduating from university.

Following the success of his first restaurant, he then built and designed from the ground up his own cocktail bar and lounge in Pasadena, California.

After outgrowing his love for restaurants, he dedicated his time to another passion of his, interior design and renovations.

Between the restaurant and the cocktail lounge, I ran them for 15 years, he says. It had run its course.

Sabatella taught himself about plant selection and learned which zones were best for which plants.

I never got a degree in design, but the talent was something I was born with, he says. I had a knack for design of spaces. I did wardrobe design. When I was in my early 30s, I redesigned my restaurant. I knew there was a next step in my career.

After friends and colleagues saw his work with his own bar and his familys restaurant, Sabatella began getting hired as an interior designer and renovator through contacts he had made over his previous career.

This had held him to open his own company, CS Domains, as well as The Sabatella Group which handles the real estate side of the business.

I pride myself on a very eclectic design style, and I love to combine the new and the old, he says. What drives the comfort is the energy flow. Its the feeling of when you walk in the door and I try to salvage windows, doors or hardware. If theres anything that is original, I take a look at it and try to salvage it.

Sabatella says having Inside Out is another platform to educate an audience on a bigger scale.

What we wanted to do with the show is to encourage the viewers to do home renovation projects, he says. Its overwhelming for sure, but in the end, the results are beautiful.

With so much on his plate, Sabatella uses his home as a sanctuary.

A self-described gym junkie, he loves to travel with his family and unplug from the world.

We have a house in Palm Desert that we love, he says. We go out there as much as we can. I create calmness in my home with use of colors. Theres a pool and we utilized all the elements of nature. This is where I sit back, mediate and decompress.

Could we grow endangered plants on other planets? No – New Scientist News

Posted: at 1:54 am

Josie Ford

Could we grow endangered plants on other planets? We pause and consider this question. No.

Still, since this query is the subject line of a PR email from an online flower-delivery service, handed to us by a colleague with a pair of tongs and a disparaging look, we find it worthy of further consideration. Even more so since we are promised conclusions reached using research and working with a designer.

Today, nearly 40% of the worlds plants are endangered, according to a report from the Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew, we read. Sad, sad science fact. But never fear, once we have destroyed Earths ecosystems, a bright, green future exists elsewhere in the solar system, at least in the world of whirly-eyed PR.

As the soil on Mars has double the amount of iron than soil on planet earth, leafy green vegetables and microgreens would easily thrive there, we learn. Dandelions, too, apparently a species far from endangered on Feedbacks small patch of terra firma. Hops vine [sic], trees, shrubs and poison ivy might be able to survive the challenging temperatures on this moon, it opines of Jupiters satellite Europa, where days struggle to rise above -135C and surface radiation levels are around 2000 times those on Earth. One of the only things that can kill poison ivy is boiling water so the cold and wet conditions on Europa seem to be the ideal environment for this plant.

The outlook is even rosier on Titan, the Saturnian moon where water ice at around -180C fulfils the function of bedrock, and great surface lakes are filled with liquid natural gas. Titans surface is sculpted by methane and ethane, which only one other planet in the solar system has: Earth. Therefore, tobacco plants should grow on this moon too, our correspondent concludes, non-sequentially.

Please let me know if you have any questions, the email ends. So, so many, including where we get some of the wacky Europa baccy too. Optimism is a fine, fine thing, but as far as the future of life on Earth is concerned, we fear the rationalists counterstatement applies: il faut cultiver notre jardin.

We are all in the gutter, but some of us are looking at the stars, as one of the usual suspects once wrote. Or we are all in the gutter, sending in responses to our recent item on peculiar toilet signage (31 July).

Toilets and viewing area was an unfortunate juxtaposition that confronted Richard Ellam at an Aberdeen Science Festival some years back, while Chris Evans relays that A lay-by eatery near where I live (on the A59 between Skipton and Clitheroe) for some years displayed a sign reading Sit-in or take-away toilet' neither of which seems particularly practicable or desirable.

Our item on the newly introduced crocodile hazard at the Royal Port Moresby Golf Club in Papua New Guinea (14 August) reminds Stuart Reeves in Wake Forest, North Carolina, of playing at the Skukuza Golf Club in Kruger National Park in South Africa a sentence that exhausts us even typing it.

Its local rules include such gems as Burrowing animals Rough/Fairway drop without penalty from holes made by burrowing animals and termites, NOT HOOF MARKS. Burrowing animals include warthogs, moles and termites.

Other rules (formal and informal) that Stuart has encountered on his travels include Give way to a herdsman and his cows crossing the fairway; free drop from a hippopotamus footprint; free drop about 3 club lengths if the ball lands in the coils of a snake (no need to be precise); if a monkey steals your ball it is a lost ball. Strong stuff and further congratulations on your self-confessed status as a recovering golfer.

Mentions in Almost the last word (14 August) of interesting numbers, numbers with their own Wiki page and the fine-structure constant (approximately 1/137) prompted me to recheck the Wiki page for 137, writes Mike Sargent, displaying the talent for the tangent that we so admire among Feedback readers. It has for several years now informed us that Wolfgang Pauli, a pioneer of quantum physics, died in a hospital room numbered 137, a coincidence that disturbed him.

It is difficult to know which is more surprising, that Paulis consciousness transcended death, or that he then contrived to communicate his feelings on his demise to a Wiki page editor, he continues. We dont wish to sound too woo, but it is a fundamental tenet of quantum mechanics that information cannot be destroyed, and Physics might create a backdoor to an afterlife but dont bank on it is the headline of an article we see in our webspace starting from that basis. We would say thats living proof, but thats possibly not quite right.

Casting our all-seeing eye over our shoulder, we see that our neighbours and friends in Almost the last word (backwards readers: youll find it towards the front) are discussing how a photon knows to travel at the speed of light.

With the privilege of having the actual last word, we must give the obvious missing answer: because it is very bright.

Air conditioning is one of the greatest inventions of the 20th Century. Its also killing the 21st – TechCrunch

Posted: at 1:52 am

When did indoor air become cold and clean?

Air conditioning is one of those inventions that have become so ubiquitous, that many in the developed world dont even realize that less than a century ago, it didnt exist. Indeed, it wasnt so long ago that the air inside our buildings and the air outside of them were one and the same, with occupants powerless against their environment.

Eric Dean Wilson, in his just published book, After Cooling: On Freon, Global Warming, and the Terrible Cost of Comfort, dives deep into the history of this field. It took more than just inventing the air conditioner to make people want to buy it. In fact, whole social classes outright rejected the technology for years. It took hustle, marketing skill, and mass societal change to place air conditioning at the center of our built environment.

Wilson covers that history, but he has a more ambitious agenda: to get us to see how our everyday comforts affect other people. Our choice of frigid cooling emits flagrant quantities of greenhouse gas emissions, placing untold stress on our planet and civilization. Our pursuit of comfort ironically begets us more insecurity and ultimately, less comfort.

Its a provocative book, and TechCrunch hosted Wilson for a discussion earlier this week on a Twitter Space. If you missed it, here are some selected highlights of our conversation.

This interview has been condensed and edited.

Danny Crichton: The framing story throughout the book is about your travels with your friend Sam, who works to collect Freon and destroy it. Why did you choose that narrative arc?

Eric Dean Wilson: Sam at the time was working for this green energy company, and they were trying to find a way to take on green projects that would turn a profit. They had found that they could do this by finding used Freon, specifically whats called CFC-12. Its not made anymore, thank goodness, but it was responsible in part for partially destroying the ozone layer, and production of it was banned by the 90s.

But use of it, and buying and selling it on the secondary market, is totally legal. This is sort of a loophole in the legality of this refrigerant, because the United States government and the people who signed the Montreal Protocol thought that when they stopped production of it that it would pretty much get rid of Freon by the year 2000. Well, that didnt happen, which is kind of a mystery.

So Sam was driving around the United States, finding Freon on the internet, and meeting people (often people who are auto hobbyists or mechanics or something like that) who happened to have stockpiled Freon, and he was buying it from them in order to destroy it for carbon credits on Californias cap-and-trade system. And the interesting thing about this is that he was going to basically the 48 contiguous states, and meeting people that were often global warming deniers who were often hostile to the idea of the refrigerant being destroyed at all, so he often didnt tell them upfront that he was destroying it.

What was really interesting to me is that, aside from a cast of colorful and strange characters, and sometimes violent characters actually as well, was the fact that sometimes after establishing a business relationship first, he was able to have really frank conversations about global warming with people who were otherwise not very open to it.

In a time in which were told that Americans are more divided than ever politically, that were not speaking to each other across ideological divides, I thought this was a curious story.

Crichton: And when it comes to greenhouse gases, Freon is among the worst, right?

Wilson: I should be really clear that the main global warming gases are carbon dioxide and methane and some other ones as well. But molecule for molecule, CFCs (chlorofluorocarbons) are thousands of times greater at absorbing and retaining heat, meaning that theyre just thousands of times worse for global warming, molecule for molecule. So even though theres not that many of them in terms of parts per million in the atmosphere, theres enough to really make a sizable contribution to global warming.

The irony is that the replacements of CFCs HFCs (hydrofluorocarbons) for the most part, dont really do anything to destroy the ozone layer, which is great. But theyre also super global warming gases. So the ozone crisis was solved by replacing CFCs with refrigerant that exacerbated the global warming crisis.

Crichton: Now to get to the heart of the book, you focus on the rise of air conditioning, but you start by giving readers a wide view of what life was like before its invention. Why did you do that?

Wilson: This was a surprise I did not go into the book thinking that I was going to find this. Before air conditioning really took off in the home, there was a really different sense of what we would call personal comfort, and something that I really argue in the book is that what weve come to think of as personal comfort, and specifically, thermal comfort, has changed. What I argue in the book is that its really in part a cultural construction.

Now, I want to be really careful that people dont hear that Im saying that its entirely a construction. Yes, when we get too hot or too cold, then we can die, for sure. But whats really interesting to me is that theres a lot of evidence to show that before air conditioning began at the beginning of the twentieth century, people werent really hungry for air conditioning.

There was this greater sense that you could deal with the heat. I put that really carefully, because I dont want to say that they suffered through it. Certainly there were heat waves and summers that got too hot. But there was a real sense that you could manage the heat through analog ways, like sleeping outside, sleeping in parks, or designing buildings that incorporate passive cooling. The thing that really disturbed me was that through the twentieth century, we really kind of forgot all that, because we didnt need that knowledge anymore because we had air conditioning. So modernist architecture began to kind of ignore the outside conditions, because you could construct whatever conditions you wanted inside.

I think the question that nobody really asked all along is, is this good for everyone? Should we have a homogenized standard of comfort? Nobody really asked that question. And theres a lot of people that find that the kind of American model of an office or American model of comfort is not comfortable, both in the United States, and in other places.

Crichton: Even beyond a homogenized standard though, you want readers to understand how comfort connects all of us together.

Wilson: I think that one of the pernicious things about the American definition of comfort is that it has been defined as personal comfort. And the reason why I keep using that is because its defined as individual comfort. And so what would it mean to think about comfort as being always connected to somebody else, as more ethical that way? Because its true.

The truth is that our comfort is related to other people, and vice versa. Its really asking us to think interdependently, instead of independently, which is how were often encouraged to think, and thats a huge, huge ask. Actually, thats a huge task and a huge paradigm shift. But I really think if were really trying to think ecologically, and not just sustainably, we have to think about how were all connected and how these infrastructures, how they influence other people in other parts of the world.

Crichton: Air conditioning didnt take off right away. In fact, its inventors and customers really had to push hard to get people to want to use it.

Wilson: Air conditioning really got its start in the early twentieth century, in order to control the conditions in factories. I was surprised to find out that air conditioning was used in places to make things hotter, or more humid and slightly hotter in a place like a textile factory, where if its not humid enough, cotton threads can break.

Outside the factory, movie theaters were really the first time that thermal comfort was used as a commodity. There were all kinds of other commodifications of comfort, but this was really the first time that the public could go someplace to feel cooler. And the funny thing is is that most movie theaters in the 20s and 30s were freezing cold, they were not what I would call comfortable, because the people who were running them didnt really understand that air conditioning works best when its noticed least, which is a hard sell. In the 20s, though, it was a novelty, and the way that you caught peoples attention on a summer day was to crank the AC up, which felt good for like five minutes, and then it was terribly uncomfortable and you had to shiver through an hour and a half of the rest of the movie.

Crichton: Im jumping ahead, but what does the future look like as global warming persists and our cooling increases in line with that heat?

Wilson: In so many cooling situations, there are major alternatives, like redesigning our buildings so that they require way less energy and way less cooling. There are really amazing architects who are looking to things like termite mounds, because the colonies that they build sort of have brilliantly engineered rooms with different temperatures.

That said, I was surprised how much our opinion on comfort could change by simply understanding that it could change. I think that we have to make the world of tomorrow desirable, and we can take a nod from the commercial advertising industry. We have to sell this future as one that we actually want, not as something that were giving up. And I think the narrative is always like, Oh, we have to stop doing this, we have to lower this, we have to give this up. And thats certainly true. But I think if we understand that as not something that were giving up, but actually something that were gaining, then it makes it a lot easier. For people, it makes it feel a lot more possible.

If you have scorpions or black widows, which can be dangerous, call a pest control professional to get rid of them.

Special to the Arizona Daily Star

Question: How can I get rid of crickets in and around my home?

Answer: If youre seeing crickets inside your home, then more serious predators are sure to follow. Get rid of those crickets fast.

Heres what not to do: Dont empty a can of Raid on those creepy crawlers. Sure, youll drown the ones you can see, but their friends will simply sidestep the chemicals when they come out of their hiding places.

A better strategy is to find out where theyre hiding and lure them out with a granular food bait that will trap them. You also can use sticky traps or concoct your own traps using a jar containing some water and molasses.

Q: How can I get rid of ants around my house and yard?

A: We have compiled a list of recommendations from the hosts, listeners and Rosie on the House extermination partners.

Small apple slices (kills the queen ant due to digestive problems)

Corn meal (may harm bird digestion, use with caution)

Grits (safe for bird digestion)

Cinnamon (deterrent only)

Avon Skin So Soft in a spray bottle, diluted with water (also helpful to keep mosquitoes off your skin)
