TM I-SiteTM laser scanning expertise and software technology is being used to map the geology and layout of the deepest underground laboratory to be established in the USA. The Deep Underground Science and Engineering Lab (DUSEL) in the former Homestake gold mine in Lead, South Dakota, will provide for scientific studies in particle and nuclear physics, geology, hydrology, geo-engineering, biology, and biochemistry. The project, funded by the National Science Foundation, will allow geoscientists and engineers to research the behaviour of subsurface rock, minerals, water and energy sources. A key reason for selecting Maptek to carry out the underground scanning of drifts is the experience of technical personnel in both mining and laser scanning, as well as in data filtering and modelling. Homestake, the deepest mine in North America with galleries at 8000 ft (2438 m), is well suited for experiments that require extremely low cosmogenic backgrounds. In April 2009 Maptek technical services staff scanned 2 drifts at the 300-foot level, capturing 8 million points - 8 Gb data - for geological mapping and evaluating structures. I-Site Studio software has been designed with mine surveyors in mind; DUSEL has a few extra requirements. These tools provided the ability to combine lower resolution scan data with high resolution photographic imagery. Maptek has been developing 3D mining technology for 30 years, helping mining companies worldwide to maintain their competitive advantage. Editorial input has been requested for International Mining’s Novermber focus on GPS and surveying. International Mining’s October issue, currently in final production, includes a focus on the mining industry of Kazakhstan, where one of the major mining companies is Kazakhmys, the world’s No.10 copper producer. BASF’s MEYCO Equipment unit and Sandvik Mining and Construction have signed an agreement on global co-operation in the fields of tunneling and mining.
Advances in geological concepts and technology are the cornerstone of the competitiveness of the mining industry.

The SF 17-22 was specifically designed for applications in industries such as hospitals, laboratories, breweries, universities or pharmaceuticals.
The SF multi-duplex consists of 1 or 2 elements, backed up respectively by 1 or 2 additional elements, integrated in a sound insulated enclosure.  This SF multi-duplex design is compliant with all the stringent redundancy standards within the medical sector.
Atlas Copco's 100% oil-free scroll compressor technology protects both the production process and the end product quality while fulfilling the most stringent requirements for pure and clean oil-free air. By optimizing cooling flow design, pressure drop and lower inlet air temperature, Atlas Copco has increased reliability and performance level.  This results in a free air delivery (FAD) up to 51% higher and specific energy requirements (SER) down 6% for the new SF 17-22 range when comparing to the previous multi-scroll range. The integrated Energy Saver System (ESi) monitors and controls the running hours of each element module, allowing for equal wear so service visits can be combined, optimizing your production process and minimizing downtime.  Convenient access to each element module renders for minimum maintenance time. The SF 17-22 can easily be placed at the point of use due to the silenced enclosure 65 dB(A) with integrated dryer full feature concept reducing installation costs and minimizing pressure drops saving energy. Corollary: since health care is essential to the maintenance of life, should health care be a human right? In the United States (sole among the industrialized countries), the answer currently is NO.
After World War II, large businesses began using health care as a benefit in order to entice skilled workers. As time passed, Federal and State regulations began requiring companies over a certain size to provide these services, thus providing an indirect taxation on business and quietly abrogating the obligation that would normally be expected of the government to administer the programsA (Most other countries chose to address the issue head-on).
In 1965, Medicare and Medicaid were formed, which created health care services for the elderly and poor, respectively, under the aegis of the Social Security envelope.
Medicaid quality varies widely, since it is partially funded and administered at the State level. A retiree is a soldier who has typically served over 14 years and receives a pension AND benefits as a function of time spent in service. A soldier who is injured while in service and requires ongoing medical care is the primary target of the VA system, and the system caters to people as far back as World War I.
Active military and military retirees and their eligible dependents have their own system, which ranges from on-base services to a variation of a single-payer system called Tricare (CHAMPUS). Lastly, some states have a€?at riska€? insurance for people who do not qualify for other insurance programs.
Emergency rooms are also overburdened, since the desperate flock there for treatment of minor ailments, defeating their purpose as EMERGENCY rooms.
Bottom line: people who lost their jobs during which they may have had an ailment are increasingly unable to get or change insurance. A more insidious effect is that if one IS covered by insurance, it becomes very risky to leave that protection.
The current mandated a€?post-separationa€? system, COBRA, provides six months of coverage following separation at relatively high costs to the employee--often thousands of dollars a month (when I left my last employer in 2005, I was offered a generous deal at $460). The amusing thing about this approach is that the US IS a socialist country, is heavily influenced by socialist ideals (or, as some might argue, the Christian ideals that influenced socialist ideals), and has been for well over a century. The Democrats have also made major missteps, and have their share of blame in this situation. Rangel also co-sponsored the House version of the current health bill, HR 3200, and it is even longer. The Democrats also suffer from the assistance of their bedfellows, fringe leftist groups such as MoveOn.org, which used extreme ad hominem techniques to attack a wartime president and the US image abroad and helped engineer the current Democratic a€?opportunitya€? (using precisely the same methods that the Right is using to undercut the current wartime president and engineer their own opportunity in 2010 a€“ both sides will use what works, no matter how disgusting).
Culturally, Democrats have a long tradition of sponsoring expensive government programs, from the New Deal to the Great Society, which end up dabbling in de facto social engineering, and which somehow tend to become dogma and the subject of much emotion.
To support Johnsona€™s Great Society, for instance, much legislation was passed that seemed a good idea at the time, but in retrospect was an awful idea, taking the wisdom, for instance, that racial discrimination is a bad idea, then trying to redress wrongs by discriminating against others or showing preferences to those who were wronged (at the expense of others). Overall, the deepest criticisms come from a gut skepticism: who wants to introduce yet another half-baked hallowed Federal institution? Currently (perhaps too late), now that there's a bill in text, the overarching philosophy seems in agreement, and the issue is merely the approach to be used. So, all retirees are veterans, but not all veterans are retirees.A  And not all retirees are eligible for veteran services.A  Got it? Lastly, some states have a€?at riska€? insurance for people who do not qualify for other insurance programs.A  This is a service-of-last resort, strictly managed, high premiums, typically unadvertised, and with limited enrollment.
4.A  Since insurance companies are offered and regulated at the state level, it is not possible for customers to cross state lines and shop for the best program.
The Democrats have also made major missteps, and have their share of blame in this situation.A  Shortly before Obama took office, an ultra-left member of the House, Charles B. These drifts were last mined in 1920, and lacked geological mapping to the level of detail required.
Maptek's software has the unique features we need to get the right output for the project,' commented Dr Zbigniew (Ziggy) J. Maptek developed new tools to manage the massive volume of captured data, maintaining the required accuracy and detail for analysis.


Modelled surfaces incorporating photographic detail could then be constructed from this data and exported for use in Maptek VulcanTM for geotechnical analysis. On that subject, news comes from the USA that MaptekTM I-SiteTM laser scanning expertise and software is being used to map the geology and layout of the old Homestake gold mine in Lead, South Dakota. Paus reports that since 2007 it has delivered a total of 34 personnel transporters to Kazakhmys. Lack of proper coolant system maintenance is the biggest killer of engines according to David Armstrong, CEO of MECHRONIK.
In a first step they have agreed to initiate co-operation in the service and maintenance of machines for sprayed concrete.
The wholly owned Evonik group subsidiary supplies products to customers in the mining, chemical, pharmaceutical, and surface treatment industries. Ensuring that technical knowledge and opportunity is optimised in mining and exploration has become a core priority in the current period of economic uncertainty. JOHN’S — The 66th Mines Ministers Conference was urged once again to take active measures in support of the Canada’s mineral industry.

A The section of society which is uninsured is hit with a double whammy: both the inability to get insurance, AND the inability to afford the private-pay route.
I know it is, because I have been nauseated since listening to the president's summit last Thursday.If nothing else in this never-ending suffocation of American health care has been clear, the sham was transparent enough.

We heard them mock their own bill by referring to it as a "prop." We watched as those who opposed the bill were insulted and shut off from discussion, and the end result was an immediate threat to "go along" with the 2,400 pages of lower- quality, higher-cost, more restrictive medical treatment or take it up at the polls in November.Do the progressives have no intellectual honesty left in them? They know, as every American instinctively knows, this bill is not affordable to the citizens of this country, and they also know that it will reduce the availability and quality of health care for the majority of citizens. It appears that, like spoiled children, these '60s leftovers care not about anything except their own power. If we allow one-sixth of our economy to be taken over by what has essentially become a handful of "government gangsters" (Michael Barrone's term, not mine) we are in serious trouble. Move on to the important stuff.It's like a group who claims the sky is falling, using doctored data to "prove" it. Or in the case of global warming, government will force you to give it money, burden and tax industry with green regulation, and enjoy telling the rest of us what to do in perpetuity.As you read this, Democrats in Washington are planning a huge energy tax called cap-and-trade to "fight" climate change.
The first of many, I'm sure, it will burden every citizen and business with higher costs of, literally, everything.Questions for the Tallahassee Democrat: Is what George Will says true? Did Phil Jones of the Climatic Research Unit admit there's been no warming in 15 years or that the earth was warmer during the Medieval Warm Period?


Did the IPCC retract its assertion that Himalayan glaciers are melting?Then, why doesn't the Democrat report on it? The state Senate last week approved a 294-percent increase in the state cigarette tax, and unless the House or Gov. Crist rejects the plan, it will punish the very taxpayers the stimulus package purported to save.A A cigarette tax increase is a regressive tax hike on the state's low-income population during a devastating recession. Florida smokers' median household income is almost $10,000 less per year than that of Florida nonsmokers. In some of the state's poorest counties, the cost of cigarettes will surpass 5 percent of household income.A Cigarette tax increases also have detrimental effects on nonsmokers by damaging the larger economy. Raising the price of a pack of cigarettes higher than those found in bordering states promises to not only repel out-of-state consumers but drive Florida citizens over the state border, where prices are lower. Retailers are justifiably clamoring to defeat the tax hike, because they see sales evaporating as customers buy their cigarettes in Georgia and Alabama, where a carton will cost almost $10 less. The price advantage that Florida's retailers enjoyed will go up in smoke if this tax hike happens.A Florida Senators are lauding the $1-per-pack hike as a victory for both balanced budgets and anti-smoking initiatives, but the reality is a cigarette tax increase cannot achieve both. Any drop among in-state cigarette purchases goes hand-in-hand with a reduction in tax revenues, leaving another gaping budget hole in the future. As growing numbers of Florida smokers buy their cigarettes somewhere else, revenue projections will not be met. Between FY 2002 and FY 2007, state cigarette taxes were increased 57 times; 39 of those increases yielded revenues that fell short of predictions. In New Jersey, cigarette tax revenue actually declined after a tax hike there, with revenues falling 181 percent short of expectations. A study by the National Taxpayers Union found that, after 35 tobacco tax hikes between 2004 and 2006, 22 states followed up with other tax increases.For those of you keeping score at home, cigarette taxes are bad for smokers, nonsmokers, the poor, retailers, the government and anyone who cares about the state's economy.
It appears the only people these tax hikes benefit are the misinformed, who will change their tune soon enough.The fact that any tax hikes are on the table is preposterous. Florida expects to receive a $13 billion infusion from the federal government as part of President Obama's stimulus package. We need a government that will encourage entrepreneurs and preserve property rights, thus allowing citizens to invest in America.A This is what has made America great a€” letting one choose his or her own destiny. But keeping people employed through government jobs at the taxpayers' expense will not stimulate the economy.
Government should reduce jobs, just as the private sector does.A This brings me to ask why we, the citizens of Leon County and Tallahassee, are being hit with so many fees in these troubled times? Are citizens here obligated to furnish local-government employees with a better lifestyle by imposing fees while local businesses are hurting for sales? What's next?A The city and county should first look at the situation we have now, which is an ex-fire chief managing the Emergency Medical Services (EMS) and a fire chief managing the Tallahassee Fire Department.
Taxpayers are covering the cost now, and taxpayers have always paid for fire protection through their property taxes.In the 1960s, '70s, '80s and '90s, property taxes paid for local government without the fees we are faced with today. It appears that, like spoiled children, these '60s leftovers care not about anything except their own power.

If Nader hadn't drawn 90,000 Florida votes in 2000, the reasoning goes, a handful of his supporters might have closed their eyes, swallowed hard and voted for Al Gore a€” probably closing the 537-vote gap by which Bush carried the state. A Imagine Clinton or Obama (maybe Clinton and Obama) versus McCain or Mitt Romney or Mike Huckabee next fall. Once again, the Democrats will be the peace party while the Republicans defend their policies.
A It's probably too much to hope for, but the best-known leaders in both Florida political parties are being mentioned for vice president. Charlie Crist's well-timed endorsement of McCain raised his running-mate ratings in the GOP.
Bill Nelson, having won four times in a state with 27 electoral votes, should be on the short list of either Democrat. They're affable and telegenic, but they have shown they can be tough, capable campaigners.
On the other hand, gay-marriage proponents, who have pushed this issue in the courts and legislatures from Hawaii to Massachusetts, seem startled and offended when their cause runs into resistance. Ulysses Grant's drinking, Abraham Lincoln supposedly joked that he would find out what kind of liquor Grant liked and send a case to each of his other generals. Well, Leon County has always had totally clean elections a€” zero defects in the recounts, readily certifiable results, relatively short lines, few if any complaints from candidates.
Even in the post-presidential merriment of 2000, Ion Sancho's office stood out from the rest of Florida.
So now Sancho is investigating allegations of drinking on primary night by some of his employees.
Considering how well our elections have run, maybe he ought to find out what they were drinking and send a case to colleagues in some other counties. With the interviews to begin in FSU's athletic-director search, did you know that the first FSU AD was a woman? Montgomery entered Florida State College for Women, she found there was no provision for recreation for women students outside of a couple of tennis courts. Some said it was not quite ladylike for women to take physical education and was a hazard to the health of women to take violent exercises.
When FSCW became FSU and men were enrolled, a football team was organized, and of course a (male) coach was hired.
Montgomery had a doctorate in physical education, and the coach had only a bachelor's degree, she still remained head of the department of physical education.
