While not the most attractive creatures, the small, segmented animals come in many forms - there are more than 900 species of them - and they're found everywhere in the world, from the highest mountains to the deepest oceans. The views expressed in the contents above are those of our users and do not necessarily reflect the views of MailOnline.
1.1 Students learn to identify the role of enzymes in metabolism, describe their chemical composition and use a simple model to describe their specificity on substrates. Most people would know that some animals (like frogs, snakes and lizards) are a€?cold-bloodeda€? and that when the weather is cold, these animals are less active than when ita€™s warm. Each enzyme has a unique shape - it is this shape that means it will make just one reaction go.
Enzymes are not usually used up in chemical reactions - they can be used over and over, so they can be present in tiny amounts. Enzymes are difficult to study in high school but there is one in saliva that we can study. Explain why our bodies need to make large amounts of digestive enzymes (like pepsin) but only tiny amounts of other enzymes (like hexokinase, which is present in every cell and catalyses the breakdown of glucose to glucose 6-phosphate). This experiment is important to addressing the skills outcome H11 (a€?A student justifies the appropriateness of a particular investigation plana€?). I hope you have a picture of many chemical reactions occurring in your own body right now, each one occurring because of the presence of tiny amounts of enzymes. So, it is important that the temperature and acidity in your body has to be kept at the right level.
Maybe you can think of some changes that occur in your body when the temperature gets too low!
The first step to prevent your death is for your body to recognise the change in your body temperature. I have only considered what happens when there is a danger of you over-heating but there are many aspects of your body that have to be kept constant - for example, oxygen, sugar and water levels in the blood. Nerve impulses travel very quickly, and travel from one small part of the body to another small part. Hormones travel relatively slowly in blood, from an endocrine gland to a number of target organs. An example might be the hormone adrenalin, travelling from the adrenal glands above the kidneys to skin (constricting blood vessels), the pacemaker in the brain (increasing heart rate), the liver (increasing the level of glucose in the blood) and many other organs. At the Mid-Atlantic ridge, a€?black smokersa€? raise the temperature of the ocean above 100oC without the water boiling (because of the very high pressure). There are other organisms that thrive in temperatures close to the freezing point of water. The temperatures at which organisms are found and the range over which they can survive is because of the enzymes in their bodies. A Grylloblattid - (Grylloblatta bifratrilecta) an insect related to crickets and cockroaches that lives in snow. Leta€™s make our ectotherm the impressive but relatively harmless (if left alone) Red-bellied Black Snake (Pseudechis porphyriacus).
Comparing our ectoderm (Black Snake) and endoderm (Wombat) it is clear that both have behaviours and bodies that help them to survive extremes. Your textbook does not give any examples of plants responding to temperature change - only adaptations to temperature extremes -so Eucalypts have drooping leaves which helps them to avoid overheating when the Sun is high; deciduous trees drop their leaves which helps them to avoid frost damage. Responses of plants to temperature change are not common but there has been great interest from horticulturalists over several hundreds of years in the ability of Rhododendron spp to curl their leaves in response to temperature change.
Most people would know that some animals (like frogs, snakes and lizards) are a€?cold-bloodeda€? and that when the weather is cold, these animals are less active than when ita€™s warm.A  Why is this? Enzymes are not usually used up in chemical reactions - they can be used over and over, so they can be present in tiny amounts.A  But most importantly, they only work under special conditions - a narrow temperature range and a narrow pH (acidity) range. That usually doesna€™t happen because things happen in your body to cool your body.A  You sweat, surface veins open up so that blood flows closer to the cooling air, and you breathe more often releasing warm our from your lungs. This is a practical investigation involving second-hand research.A  Before you start it, you should read these notes.
I have only considered what happens when there is a danger of you over-heating but there are many aspects of your body that have to be kept constant - for example, oxygen, sugar and water levels in the blood.A  For each, there are receptors that detect the changes and a control centre (usually in the brain) that counteracts the change.
Nerve impulses travel very quickly, and travel from one small part of the body to another small part.A  An example might be from a fingertip to a very small part of the brain when we touch something.
There are other organisms that thrive in temperatures close to the freezing point of water.A  For example, there are bacteria-like cells that grow on snow turning it red (to produce a€?watermelon snowa€?). On the other hand, individual organisms can generally survive in a fairly narrow range.A  For example, tropical fish die in cold water, yet antarctic fish would die in tropical waters.
Choose an ectothermic animal species, an endothermic animal species and a plant species.A  Dona€™t forget the advice about second-hand research, especially to acknowledge your sources. Your textbook does not give any examples of plants responding to temperature change - only adaptations to temperature extremes -so Eucalypts have drooping leaves which helps them to avoid overheating when the Sun is high;A  deciduous trees drop their leaves which helps them to avoid frost damage. Our Commercial Estimator, Dave Scaturro, was recently featured on Sherwin Williams's Segment "Pro On The Go". Alpine Painting was recently featured in a great article in PPC (Professional Painting Contractor) Magazine's Fall 2015 Issue. Watch our video to see how Alpine Painting incorporates technology in our business practices. Alpine Painting was recently featured on the cover of Utility and Transportation Contractor (UTCA) Magazine for the Month of June. The key to properly painting a historic structure is capturing the essence and ambiance of when it was first built. We were honored to be awarded the job and we hope the Historic Preservation Commission is as pleased as we are with how it turned out!
Thank you to all that made this project possible, including the Paterson Historic Preservation Commission (Kelly Ruffel & Gianfranco Archimede) Ken Simpson (Chariman of the Historic Preservation Commission and Supervisor of Passiac County) and Mohammed Ahmed for helping spearhead this project. With much more elasticity and elongation compared to typical paint, elastomeric coatings is the answer to your waterproofing inquiries.
When the surface of your warehouse fluctuates in temperature, elastomeric coatings are flexible enough to expand and contract without cracking their surface. Re-caulking expansion joints is another way stop water from penetrating into your building.
Although, we just offered a few procedures for waterproofing your building, this type of job is best left to an experienced professional who will assure full potential of your product. We are privileged and honored to have Anthony as a valued member of our team, and admire his creativity and drive to constantly improve our technology systems. It is with great honor and pride to announce that two of Alpine’s field workers, Demetri Moraitakis and Swaveck Plokarz, have successfully passed their NACE CIP Level 1 course and exam. At Alpine, we are constantly obtaining and renewing quality and safety certifications to not only stay compliant with legal standards, but to go above and beyond them. Manufacturers selling in the state will now be responsible for providing paint collection spots around the state for paint disposal. In addition, safer workplaces lead to fewer accidents as well as uninterrupted work with superior performance from our journeymen. Last night at The Bethwood in Totowa, NJ, Alpine Painting received the State of New Jersey Governor’s Safety Award. When painting a manufacturing facility, Alpine, first, has the facility manager remove all portable materials, supplies and equipment from the work area before the job is performed. Painting and specialty coating applications in manufacturing and processing plants goes way beyond walls and ceilings. Epoxy floor painting and dryfall paint for ceilings are very useful applications that provide more than a welcoming atmosphere for your manufacturing facility. Alpine Painting proudly accepted the NJ Governor's Occupational Safety and Health Award this March for the 5th year in a row. This year marks Alpine Painting's 40th year in business and there is no better way to celebrate it than to be featured in our hometown's newsletter, Chamber Happenings!
With over 40 years of exterior painting experience, Alpine Painting knows the proper temperature that the air, paint and substrate must be as well as the suitable dew point and relative humidity. Instead of completely replacing your masonry system, Alpine Painting can perform both repair and painting services to make your masonry look like new at a fraction of the price.
Give Alpine Painting a call today at (973) 279-3200 and get a free estimate for the exterior of your building! Sam and Ben Scaturro, natives in the field and Alpine’s second-generation owners, were the facilitators and teachers behind the operation. This past weekend, March 4-7, 2015, Steve and Dave Scaturro had the pleasure of representing Alpine at the 2015 PDCA (Painting & Decorating Contractors of America) Expo in Charleston, SC. At Alpine, we strive every day to be one of the front-runners in the commercial and industrial painting industry and we are beyond thrilled to be recognized for our efforts by such an honorable and renowned committee. With a wide range of colors, textures and finishes, epoxy paints loos as good as they protect. Did you realize epoxy floor coatings can be considered environmentally and physically safer than the average floor? Proper application of epoxy floor finishes is critical to final appearance and long-term durability. Alpine Painting and Sandblasting Contractors has years of surface preparation and coating application experience in a wide variety of facilities. Alpine Painting is proud to announce that the Greater Paterson Chamber of Commerce featured us in their newsletter "Chamber Happenings" in September of last year.
Sure the layers of paint on your vehicles and equipment serve to make them look nice; however, did you know that these coatings serve to protect them as well? Before reapplying a new layer of paint, all existing coatings, including paint, rust, grease, oil and dirt, should be sandblasted from the surface. Alpine Painting was hired by FirstService Residential to paint Wanaque Community Mid Rise, an active adult lifestyle community, located in Wanaque, NJ.
With each project Alpine completes we have full-time project managers along with English-speaking crew leaders who make sure the job gets done properly and efficiently. Office buildings, Retail Stores, Hotels, Warehouses are just a few examples of interior projects Alpine paints throughout the winter. Alpine Painting is excited to announce that from February 3-6, we will be attending the 2015 SSPC (The Society for Protective Coatings) Expo featuring GreenCOAT in Las Vegas, NV! If you are investing your own time and money into a project, wouldn't you rather do it right the first time? Interior: For interior projects, the first thing you want to do is either remove all of the furniture from the area or place it in the center of the room and cover it with drop cloths. Interior: Since paint does not adhere to dirt or damaged areas, surface repair is a vital step in the painting process. When preparing interior walls, wipe down any dirt that is present by using a sponge or a cloth with water and a mild detergent; the surface must be dry before moving on to the next step.
Exterior: When preparing exterior walls all peeling and flaking paint should be removed with sandpaper and scrapers. To clean the surface, use a mixture of water, trisodium phosphate, and bleach and scrub down the surface with a long-handled brush. When the surface is dry, start preparing it by using an exterior spackle to repair any damaged areas.
Interior: Priming your interior surface is not necessary, but doing so will allow the paint to adhere and wear better. Exterior: Priming your exterior paint job is important for staining and weathering purposes.
When priming or painting the exterior of your building, it is advised to avoid doing it with direct sun. Interior: When painting the interior of your building, the main concern you should have is ventilation. Lead is considered a toxin that can hinder the development and functions of every organ in the body. Although home testing kits do exist, the EPA strongly suggests that a certified lead inspector or a certified lead risk assessor performs the lead test. The risk assessment method locates failing paint in your building and evaluates the degree and cause of the deterioration. Here at Alpine, all of our rigid scaffolding and containment is stamped and approved by a Professional Engineer. By following the correct safety standards in containment rigging, we are able to work in high winds with the guarantee the integrity of the structure will not be compromised.
When sandblasting a tank, the used abrasive, many times including lead paint dust, is suctioned out of the containment with a dust collector.
In conjunction with our containment systems we also utilize heat or dehumidification equipment as well as other engineering controls to finish large projects within very tight time frames.
Whether working on small private projects or high-profile, public bid projects, as a contractor, you should never ever take shortcuts.
By teaming up with Community Outreach Services Inc., Alpine has raised money for turkeys and boxed and canned goods to feed over 150 families this year and over 100 families each year in the past. On Wednesday night of last week, Alpine Painting was presented the Good Graces Award at the Hamilton & Ward Steakhouse in Paterson, NJ.
Alpine received the Eagle Award in Specialty Painting for our work with the Morris County MUA.
We are so grateful to be a part of ABC and even more grateful to be recognized by their committee for our hard work. We are proud to announce that we were ranked 37th of the top specialty contractors in the New York Tri-State Area by ENR New York in September of this year. The work is written in Turkish with large naskhi script in black ink on 90 leaves of delicate finished (aharlA±) paper. This work was made for the Treasury of Sultan Murad III, and the quality of its paintings, its binding and its calligraphy make it one of the greatest works of Ottoman art created for a sultan. A contemporary copy of an illustrated cosmography, and perhaps the earliest to survive of the great geographer Ibn al-Wardi (d. The work has also been attributed to an earlier author, Zayn al-Din Abu Hafs a€?Umar Ibn al-Muzaffar Ibn al-Wardi, who died in 1348 AD, but according to the 1479 and 1487 copies of the Kharidat, this author would pre-date the original work. Though the identity of the author is still uncertain, at the very least the physical evidence of our copy would indicate either that it is a very early edition of the later Ibn al-Wardi, perhaps copied within a few years of the original, or that it is an edition of the earlier author, completed within less than a century of his death. Islamic sacred geography differs from the Ptolemaic tradition in that it does not employ cartographic grids, or longitude and latitude scales; as a rule, these used Mecca and the Kaa€?ba as the center of the world. Between the 12th and 16th centuries, the study of Islamic geography often extended to include cosmology, cosmogony, astrology and similar subjects, rather than the production of purely geographical works that were characteristic of earlier periods. In addition to the two dated copies mentioned earlier, further copies of the Kharidat al-`Ajaa€™ib include one in the Vatican Library dating to the 18th century, one of a similar date (1778 AD) in the National Library of the Czech Republic, as well as one in the Library of Congress, which is undated.
The following excerpts are taken out of a work older then 968 when Cairo became the capital. The land of the Zinji lies opposite to that of Sind; between the two intervenes the breadth of the Sea of Persia. Aden, nice town, where the ships of India and China come, one finds there all the products of the eastern countries, brought there from different places, silk, arms, kaimoukt (kind of leader) , musk, aoud (aloes wood), several aromatics, ivory, ebony, clothes of grass, estimated higher is value then those of silk, lead, pearls, precious stones, the zoubad (civet) and amber.

There you do not see anymore the pole star, or the big bear, and the waves are big as mountains. He calls the area south of the sources of the Nile: Rub'a al-Kharab, one of the richest regions in the world.
He describes Zanzibar as peopled by idolaters who boasted no code of writing (meaning no revealed religion) but were accustomed to being harangued (meaning they get speeches) by leaders of society in the marked places. One finds at Sofala a big amount of gold, in very pure nuggets and each nugget (tibra) can be 2 to 3 mithcals.

However, because it can maintain its body temperature within a narrow range, wombats can remain active over a much wider temperature range.


To Alpine this means bringing the figure or building back to life, but with its original sparkle. With the ability to stretch and retain its shape under extreme temperatures, an elastomeric coating will not fail under pressure. They have the ability to endure wind driven rain up to 100 mph; wind and rain that would normally crack the surfaces of your building.
This type of coating is a clear thin film coating system that is useful for repelling water, oil, ice, and a number of other liquid materials from a surface. CIP Level 1 is a six-day course that includes a full 60 hours of training on the technical and practical fundamentals of coating inspection work for structural steel projects. We want to keep our promise to our customers and deliver top quality performance day-in and day-out on the job. Because they are accountable for the funding, Manufacturers will be obligated to increase the cost of paint for retailers and ultimately consumers. This award was in recognition of a performance of excellence in workplace safety during which 739,831 hours were accumulated without lost-time injury from January 1, 2002, to December 21, 2014. His goal is to bring awareness to the SSPC and to give back to the SSPC what the association has given to Alpine. It is a day to recognize workers who have died or are exposed to hazards on the job and to honor the families who have suffered consequentially. This is why we do everything in our power to minimize this risk with state-of-the-art safety equipment, daily safety meetings, annual in-house safety training, and constant renewal of safety certifications for all of our employees.
As a commercial and industrial painting contractor, Alpine works with old tanks and buildings that frequently contain lead-based coatings. Then our crews use plastic and tarps to drape and cover the existing equipment, interior lighting, HVAC equipment, contuit and floor surfaces assuring that everything is protected. Durable epoxy floor coatings provide protection against the continuous movement of people and resists harmful chemicals which would normally crack or change the color of your floor. We earned the award for our achievement in the prevention of occupational injuries during the 2014 calendar year. Both the surface and air temperature must be above 40 degrees for at least 2-3 hours for most paints to dry properly and 50 degrees for most primers.
We use moisture meters to measure the amount of moisture in your building and will paint accordingly to avoid blistering and surface leaching.
Common exterior surfaces such as concrete walls, floors, balconies and structural steel require different waterproofing materials that stand up to the elements and are flexible enough to contract and expand with varying temperatures.
We will not only improve your building’s aesthetics, but we will apply specialty coatings to increase its structural integrity for years to come.
In fact, we recently had an in-house training day for two of Alpine’s shop employees, Mike Robertson and Bernard Santiago.
With hands-on lessons, Alpine’s two shop employees, Mike and Bernard, were able to watch Sam and Ben operate the spray and spot reading equipment, then get in the booth and operate it themselves. That resists harmful chemicals which would normally crack or change the color of your floor? They will give your facility an attractive professional finish and can even create more light for your interior. Although they do have a self-leveling effect, epoxy coatings should not be applied until the surface is prepared properly. Factory trained crews handle every step in the process from preparing the substrate to application of a wide variety of epoxy, urethane, or quartz flooring systems, non-skids, line striping and even clear sealers and floor polishing. We were featured for volunteering to paint Hinchcliffe Stadium, a historic stadium built in 1930, in the spring of last year.
Primer is used to seal, bond, and create a stable surface for your topcoat to be applied to.
Call your local paint contractor today and talk to them about bringing life to your office. Networking with peers as well as continuously furthering our education in the industry is what helps us stay among the top painting contractors in the nation.
Good preparation is proven to help paint last longer, look better and prevent problems such as chipping, peeling, and mold growth. With that being said, at least a day should be dedicated to this step in your project schedule, especially if you have repairs to make.
Initially, scrape with a large scraper, then use a disc sander to smooth out any imperfections; begin sanding with coarse paper then finish with a fine one.
With wood surfaces, joints and cracks in the trim and window frames should be filled with paintable caulk.
Primer is necessary, however, if your painting surface is stained or you plan on using light-colored paint. Make sure to use a special stain-blocking primer when priming nail heads and knots in the wood to inhibit rust bleeding and wood resin.
The heat can dry the primer and paint before proper penetration and can cause oil-based paints to develop blisters. Make sure to open windows while priming and painting so that any pollutants are circulating out of the room. If the surface or weather is under 50ºF, effects such as cracking and improper film formation can occur. Not only does it become ingested into the bloodstream, but some is deposited into the kidneys and brain and stored in the bones as well. The downfall of this method is that painted surfaces in good condition are not tested; therefore a negative report does not always mean lead-based paint does not exist.
Contractors that are working on these projects must provide the building owners with a new hazard pamphlet and place lead hazard signs around the property.
In many cases, accessing areas of the job and keeping the job from exposing to the surrounding environment is harder than the work itself!
One main reason we take caution is because of OSHA scaffolding safety requirements that must be met to insure worker and public safety. A dust collector is essentially a giant vacuum cleaner; but instead of picking up dust off a floor, it uses a large hose to suction dust out of the containment. This equipment is used to keep the coating system at the right curing temperature, even in very cold or humid climates. The lives of your workers as well as the people and the environment surrounding your project depend on it.
With that being said, we understand the importance of sharing and giving to the ones we love. With a beautiful ceremony and delicious dinner, the event turned out to be a remarkable night that Alpine was honored to be a part of. Their water tank needed major restoration that required Alpine to abrasively blast the interior to be a white metal blast and for the exterior to be commercial-blast clean. This is a huge growth indicator for us considering this our first appearance with ENR New York. Within are 55 miniatures depicting subjects in the text, some of them one to a page and some two. The type of paper used here, which is a style associated with 14th and 15th century Spain, and the style of calligraphy which points to a 14th century hand, suggest this copy was produced during the 14th or 15th century, and may thus indicate the earlier authorship. The tradition is generally associated with 10th century scholars such as al-Balkhi, al-Istakhri, al-Muqaddasi, Ibn Hawqal, and the ninth century geographer Ibn Khurdadhbeh (d. These cosmological works seem to have been produced for the average lay reader as organized compendia of world knowledge, rather than critical scientific works, and relied heavily on earlier sources.
64r, shows the direction of prayer to qiblah [Mecca] from different countries, seen here in 35 sectors. Several inscriptions on the inside of the front doublure exist in a later maghribi hand; one of these refers to one unidentified individual by the name of Ibn al-Maa€™mun. There are also several examples in the Chester Beatty Library, dating from the 16th to the 18th centuries; and several examples are cited in C. Others are his stories taken from Masa€™udi (without mentioning his name) in which the Zenj warriors ride on cattle. It is said that their king goes forth to battle with three thousand followers, ridding on oxen. In the north there is a mountain who goes from one sea to the other, leaving two wholes through which the boats can pass, this town (Aden) is 4 days away from the Zendges. That island produces nardgil or coconuts, sugarcane, one makes there clothes of grass, as beautiful as from silk, one builds boats of 60 elbows long, that carry 200 men. Mecca, the focal point of all spatial references, is near the center of the Arabian Peninsula, which is embraced by the Persian Gulf and the Red Sea in the shape of a crescent moon to signify the unity of the celestial and terrestrial worlds, a unity of conjoined sacredness.
While obviously these maps were produced after the European a€?early medievala€? period, they still reflect the medieval world view of the Arab cartographers. With over 40 years of experience in Historic Restoration, Alpine understands just what kind of research and communication it takes tackling such a project. This coating prevents water from lingering on surfaces which restricts mold and mildew accretion as well as a rotting foundation. It is a super hydrophobic coating that works by creating an air barrier on the surface that it is applied to.
The best way for new sealant to adhere to your substrate is to make sure that all existing sealant and backer rod is removed from the surface. The affordable system uses iPads, a software application and a cloud-based storage system to store data files, allowing instantaneous collaboration between offices and field crews. Students learn about coating materials and techniques for surface preparation to perform basic coating inspections using non-destructive techniques and inspection instrumentation.
We are so proud of our team and are excited to add two more NACE Level 1 Coating Inspectors to our job sites!
This program is used to promote recycling and environmentally-friendly disposal practices of post-consumer paint. We have won this award each year for the past 5 years and we plan on winning it for the next 5. With his knowledge and drive, he will be an excellent leader and bring great changes to the entire industry. Alpine and our project managers just became recertified EPA Renovation, Repair and Painting (RRP) Contractors.
We have the right knowledge, skills and equipment to keep all of our jobs contained and to keep the public as well as our workers protected from potential lead poisoning.
We cover all sprinkler heads with tin foil to protect from paint, still giving them the ability to work in case of an emergency.
When using dryfall paint on your ceiling you can be ensured that no paint will drip down and hit the equipment or product stored in the warehouse. With average spring temperatures of 50-55 degrees Fahrenheit and relatively low humidity in New Jersey, spring is a great time to start painting. Mold and mildew from moisture buildup can create an unhealthy indoor environment for your customers and staff.
Some of our specialties include: concrete spalling, brick or tuck pointing, and reinforcement steel (rebar).
In this training, Mike and Bernard learned all about spray equipment and how to operate it. At Alpine, we feel that hands-on, one-on-one learning is the best way to achieve the best results from our employees.
Epoxy floor coatings are the preferred finish for commercial and industrial applications in warehouses, healthcare facilities, pharmaceutical plants, manufacturing facilities and more because they perform as such. You can chose one solid color for your floor or create a decorative pattern using several colors.
The correct preparation techniques require special equipment such as, shot blasting, scarifying and diamond grinding.
Our on time reputation as a professional coatings resource makes Alpine Painting the best choice for epoxy floor surface preparation and coating applications.
March 7th than meet up with Steve & Dave Scaturro to network and learn the latest and greatest in our industry at the 2015 PDCA Expo. Our head salesmen and project managers lead over 800 volunteers in the repainting of the graffitied stadium. Protective layers should be reapplied in the off season so there is no downtime when the winter comes around.
The Alpine Family took the opportunity this week to celebrate the birthday of Steve Scaturro, the Vice President and one of the Founders of Alpine Painting, and we plan on celebrating each and every one of our employees’ birthdays for years to come. Yes, these colors stand out in a directory ad, but safety-red walls may be just a bit intimidating for people around them. The way you look at your marketing material is the same way you should look at your office.
Don't be afraid to use a colorful piece of art or an accent wall to dapper up your space.
Whether making homemade dry-erase boards with special dry-erase paint, turning a wall into a mural of one of your jobs or hanging paint cans from the ceiling, find ideas that will spark creativity in your workplace. Whether you need your walls painted, your building waterproofed, or your space completely renovated, Alpine is here to service you.
The event will be featuring exhibits with exciting new products and specialized SSPC training with more classes at one time, in one place, than any other time of year! Make sure to remove all window and door screens, light fixtures, electrical covers, and plumbing outlets. Different levels in the surface will appear when painted so make sure that all surfaces are smooth and even. If the weather is too hot, the humidity can highly affect oil-based paints by turning the paint blotchy or showing color-variations in the film. If you plan on selling or renting out your space, you have a legal obligation to inform the potential buyer or renter of any information you have about the lead-based paint or lead-based paint hazards in your building. The samples will then be tested by either portable x-ray fluorescence (XRF) or will be sent to laboratory recognized by the EPA’s National Lead Laboratory Accreditation Program. This is why some building owners decide to have both a paint inspection and risk assessment performed to their property. There are some precautions you can take to make sure that the lead does not affect you or people in the surrounding area. This is why every year, for the past 3 years, Alpine has dedicated our time and efforts to feeding the less-fortunate families of Paterson, NJ for Thanksgiving. The Historic Preservation Commission did a fine job at recognizing local businesses, government boards and churches for their dedication to the preservation of historic landmarks in the city of Paterson.
Because we pride ourselves on safety, this is a huge honor and privilege to be recognized for such a highly respected award among our peers. The job entailed concrete repairs, installation of a mixing system, the use of a catholic protection system, and the application of a 3-coat protective coating system.
When looking exclusively at how Alpine stacks up in New Jersey, we were ranked 15th overall.
On pages 1ba€“2a two round medallions carry an inscription stating the worka€™s subject and saying that it was prepared for the Treasury of Sultan Murad III (r. This work sums the geographical knowledge of the Arabic world of the time, referring to climate, terrain, fauna and flora, population, way of living, existing states and their governments in individual regions of the world.

The text and map in the manuscript suggest a medieval precursor; old place names and archaic descriptions occur frequently. The final page bears a partial reference to the owner or scribe of the manuscript, whose name appears to be al-Qawariqi. They worship idols, are brave, hardy and fight in battle riding oxen, as their country supplies neither horses, mules, nor camels.

This means that your HVAC system is being assisted in preventing moisture buildup and temperature changes due to dampness will decrease. We have experience in waterproofing warehouses in towns all over New Jersey including South Plainfield, Piscataway, Clifton, South Brunswick, and Paterson. The STEP program evaluates a safe working culture and pushes us to exceed our current safety standards and performance. To Alpine, there is nothing more important than the safety of our workers and we would like to applaud them for taking safety seriously on each and every job.
It is evaluated each day, on every job, to prevent injuries or death to our valued workforce.
This means that all of our certified project managers must provide lead-safe work practices training to all non-certified renovation workers on each job site. Proper surface preparation is essential to ensure your new coating adheres properly to the surface.


Dryfall paint will actually dry to a dust before it hits the ground, allowing it to be cleaned up easily by sweeping, rather than having to meticulously wipe it off items. Give Alpine a call and we will show you what an experienced contractor can do to make your manufacturing facility look and feel better for your employees and customers. We have multiple safety training classes for our field workers throughout the year and take systematic approaches to the safety of our jobs day-in and day-out. Whether you manage a retail store, hospital, restaurant, hotel, office or apartment building; the exterior of your structure makes a difference between people walking in and walking on by. Alpine knows the proper waterproofing sealant application procedures as well as the right elastomeric coatings to use to prevent moisture buildup. They learned what a product data sheet is and the information it supplies, how to achieve a dry film thickness using a wet film thickness gauge, and learned all about spot readings. We plan on continuing this type of training for years to come and watching our employees prosper in the painting field. Cracks and crevices that once warehoused bacteria and dirt in your floor are no longer a problem when you fill them in with a smooth epoxy finish. Contact us today if you feel that the epoxy coating is the best flooring solution for your facility! This is why it is important to prevent any damage that can be caused by dirt, salt, acid, and moisture during the winter before the integrity of your equipment is depleted.
This step is important because it removes all the existing coating and corrosion, down to the bare substrate, and creates a fresh canvas for a new coating to adhere to. Find the purpose of your business and have it spring off your walls and resonate in your employees’ work. With clients such as Dunkin Donuts, AllState, Cannon and AT&T, we know what it takes to make a job look professional and keep our customers happy.
Even out the primer by using long brush strokes and once again, check the surface for any drips.
Condensation can cause bleed or shadowing in the surface which may cause dark streaks, blotches, or glossiness on the paint film. As the body absorbs nutrients and grows, lead transfers in and out of the bones, staying in your body for as long as twenty years. Since the report from either test does not indicate the condition of the paint or whether it poses a health risk, you may want to consider utilizing the next testing method which is a risk assessment. First, make sure that the lead-based area is not a place where a lot of wear-and-tear occurs. Projects that require this type of preparation include tank and tower coating, church steeple restoration, exterior high rise renovations, heat stacks, bridge painting, and more. A contractor that practices safe working habits has happier and healthier employees that are more likely to produce better standards of work. A unique feature of this job is that Alpine utilized a self-contained unit so there was no need for containment while blasting the exterior of the tank. The author also speaks about Slavs and their lifestyle and mentions al-Mahdiyya as the residence of the Fatimid dynasty. Throughout the work, the author refers to various historians and geographers, such as al-Masa€?udi (d. These geographical works neglected to include coordinates or to employ mathematical geography in the maps, and bear great similarity to the simpler-produced maps of medieval Europe. The region between North Africa and Syria is associated with the northwest wall of the Ka`ba, with a qiblah from east to south.
At the top, Africa is extended the length of the Indian Ocean, but unlike Ptolemya€™s map, here the continent does not enclose the ocean. We view this day as a reminder to stay committed to the fight for safe and healthful workplaces for all workers, including our own. We will forever stay committed to our safety program because to us there is nothing more important than having our workers go home safe to their families at the end of each day. When it comes to manufacturing plants, Alpine has the right skills, patience and safety guidelines to contain your machinery and maneuver around it quickly and proficiently to satisfy your painting needs.
We couldn’t be more proud of the hard work our Safety Manager and Field Workers put into the program and we are thankful to be recognized for their dedication. Different color coatings or line striping can be used to define safety zones, forklift traffic zones, assembly lines and more.
Here at Alpine we will work with you to make sure we are using the paint best suited for your vehicles and equipment. To reach the paints full color and coating effect, apply two coats of paint to the surface. We then create vent holes towards the top of the containment because without holes, the pressure difference can become so great that the entire containment can collapse. We are so appreciative to have been a member of this event and look forward to hearing how our work has affected the community for decades to come. All of our achievements will keep us recognized as one of the top specialty contractors in the tri-state area for years to come. The work, which was written by the court panegyrist (Azehnameci) Sayyid Loqman AAYuri, consists of two main sections. The region between Iraq and Afghanistan is connected with the northeast wall of the Ka`ba and has a qiblah from south to west. The Nile, drawn in red, takes a right-angle turn, possibly reflecting the rivera€™s great bend.
The death lull kicked in around1230 and fishing picked back up again at 3pm.I landed the usual residents of the lake-- a few trout, afew nice crappies, perch and gills.
While being exposed to the elements and extreme temperature changes day in and day out your warehouses is bound to react. Make sure to prime the surfaces where you see rust or surfaces where the sealant will not bond to.
Finally, after all surface preparation is completed, we begin priming and painting with high performance, rust inhibitive coatings. Whether you are looking for a high-gloss finish, excellent durability, stand-out colors, or all of the above, Alpine will find the right solution. Here at Alpine we used common colors, wall designs, art, and canvas photos of our projects in every room to keep a theme throughout the office. The first begins with the universe and the signs of the zodiac and continues with stories taken from the Torah, the New Testament, and the Qura€™an which tell of the lives of prophets and those who rendered service to the faith.
Its sense of proportion is highly schematic, and the location of certain places is rather unusual, but al-Andalus [Spain], Qustantaniyyah [Constantinople] and the River Nile are all approximately where one might expect. India, Tibet and China are associated with the Black Stone in the eastern corner of the Ka`ba, with a qiblah pointing slightly northwest. Snow is not know among them, nor rain, which is commonly the case with the greater part of the country of the blacks.
They have islands in the sea, from which they collect cowries to adorn their persons, and they use them in traffic one with another, at an established rate. The original work is said to have been completed around the year 1419 AD, as stated on the earliest known copy which is dated 1479 AD (cited in R. The world is shown surrounded by water, with an outer boundary of mountains, seen here as the polychrome outer border. A fourth region, the Yemen, the Hadramawt, Aden and Socotra are linked with the southern corner of the Ka`ba, with a qiblah pointing north.
They have no ships, but traders come in vessels from Uman, to buy their children, whom they sell in different countries.
The first part ends with genealogical trees of the Prophet Muhammad, the Four Orthodox Caliphs, and the sultans and high officials of Muslim dynasties such as the Umayyads, the a€?Abbasids, the early Islamic period, the Ghaznawids, the Ilkhanids, the Seljuqs and the Timurids.
Sellheim, Arabische Handschriften: Materialen zur Arabischen Literaturgeschichte, Wiesbaden, 1976-87, Vol. In addition to the extensive chapter on geography, the Kharidat al-`Ajaa€™ib contains a chapter on the types of birds and other animals that exist in the places that the author has described. The second part opens with Sultan Osman, the founder of the Ottoman dynasty, and goes up to Sultan Murad III, with 12 portraits of Ottoman sultans. The inclusion of a small section explaining the game of chess, including a detailed drawing, has not been recorded in other copies of Ibn al-Wardia€™s cosmography. The inhabitants are infidels, and the tartars among the blacks, consisting of savage tribes of freebooters, who continually take captive and plunder every thing that falls in their way.
In recent works from about 2000 on the Ibn al-Wardi concerned is often called pseudo Ibn al Wardi. Water can deteriorate the substrate, ultimately causing exposure of lead to the surrounding area.
In their country the river divides; one branch going towards Egypt, and the other to the country of the Zinji. The paper of the present manuscript can be clearly located to Spain no later than the middle of the 15th century. Plenty ofpanfish with a few perch hitting the 9-inch mark and a crappie thatwas almost 10 inches.I caught trout sporadically throughout the day, ending with 9. It is an extensive district, and mines of iron are found in it, which the people of the country work and sell to the traders from India, who give a high price for it, on account of it being harder and of better temper than that which they obtain in their own country, and they purify it and make it into steel, which admits to a durable edge. The most remarkable produce of this country is its quantity of native gold that is found, in pieces of two or three Meskalla weight; in spite of which, the natives generally adorn their persons with ornaments of brass. Teddy told me the lake is completed covered and the ice might be about 1 inch orso.Teddy has patrolled and lived next toAntietam Lakealmostall his life and he knows the lake. There isplenty of rainfall predicted for that area.Most of the fish sitting in the estuary should be entering the river as I type this. Anglers tend to give you space, the scenery is beautiful and the Osprey's always put on a show. Wednesday was spent in the upper fly zone and wasslow in the morning but pretty consistent in the afternoon. Ialso landed a smallmouth bass, a few small brown trout, afew small rainbows (steelhead smolts ?), a fallfishand a baby AtlanticSalmon. The Mohawk egg pattern accounted for many smaller fish and the salmon sized Light Spruce fly produced a few hookups.
Last years--One Day Trip-- hot fly,Olive bugger with White marabou tail and redcrystal flash also received plenty of attention and did account for 2 fish.
The guyI was fishing withused plenty of flies with smaller bucktail flies doing most of the damage. He didhook-up with a few fish while usingmy Death Stonefly, landing one nice Coho.I can tell you this---the next few weeks will provide some serious action. There are fish in the system at this moment and with the water release at 1800 CFS and the rain. The pool we were fishing was loaded with suckers and chubs and I did see a few trout and a couple of nice sized smallmouth bass.
Any questions as to what to tie, just shoot me an email or use the Contact 2Bonthewater page.
All that cold water coming from a quarry and the creek itself in that area is near lifeless. The bridge is now being painted a Hunter Green color.Most of the creeks in the OleyValley are really low. Even with the rain, the creeks remain very low.A I have a trip scheduled to the Salmon River planned inlate September thanks to Jack. Without Jack's kindness and awesomeness, I would not be going salmon fishing.A I have startedtyingflies for the upcoming salmon trip. Zoe competed in a National Beauty pageant and won honorable mention in the beauty competition (FYI -- Zoe wears no make-up, fake hairor fake teethand she competes in the natural division--she is my little girl and I would never DRESS HER UP like all those crazy folks you see on TV).
We dressed as fishermen, answered a question about each other and then Zoe did some fly casting on stage. Zoe was crowned Little Queen when she won the Pennsylvania state pageant back in 2006 while competing in a Sunburst pageant.
There are plenty of out of the way smaller streams that are teeming with Smallmouths, Carp and a variety of Panfish.
Perkiomen Creek -- air temp 89 degrees, checked the temperature at two spots, temps were 70 and 69 degrees -- Taken between 415-425 pmA Manatawny Creek -- air temp was 88 degrees, checked the temperature at three spots, temps were 76 degrees at Red Covered Bridge, 74 degrees above TIKI bar and 76 degrees below the Rt. This heatwave has made most ofthe local trout streams too warm to fishfor the catch and release angler. Maiden Creek below Ontelaunee Lake should provide anglers with some fishthat are willing to bite. You can find Carp, Smallmouth Bass, Largemouth Bassand a wide assortment of panfish to keep you busy. Take some cold water with you !!!Your best way to keep the water cool is to freeze a bottle or two of water the night before you head out. As the day heats up, the water bottles will slowly melt, leaving you with nice cold waterto drink throughout the day.
I fished for 30-minutes on Manatawny and landed 2 wild browns on a tan caddis dry fly in the area where the water temp was 68 degrees. Temperature wise, if it is 90 degrees outside, pretty sure most, if not all of the local trout waters will be at 70 degrees or higher. We don't wantto kill the trout.The trout that survive through the summer will offerus great fishing in the fall.
I have not made a trip to the Schuylkill River as of yet, but I'd bet the house that the smallie action should be pretty darn good. You can also takeyour watercraft outbefore Epler atCross Keys Road or at Muhlenburg Township park which is below the PFBC Epler Access. There is little room to fish, unless you don't mind walking the shoreline that is covered with all types of vegetation, including Poison Ivy. Pleny of fish to be caught in this body of water, that is if you can get to them.A Manatawny Creek fished OK. This stretch used to provide some very nice smallmouth action, but the last few trips here have been poor. Switched to a spent spinner pattern and hooked up twice--snapped one off and landed a nice stocker brown.
The water is up from recent rains inthe valley, but the stream was clear and in perfect condition. The Schuylkill River and a few tribs shouldprovide any cat or carp angler with a few bites each nite. Channel catfish prefer dead baits andsmaller live bait, while the Flatheads prefer larger live bait. Carp will eatsmaller live bait including minnows andcrayfish along with the standard fare of homemade MUSH bait or whole kernel corn.The bottom line is--It doesn't really matter what bait you areusing. But, by now it was pitch black and it was raining pretty good and thelightning made it look like the 4th of July came early.I managed to land 2 fish on my emerger pattern androll 2 other trout.
Started out at the mouth of Sacony Creek but there was some serious bridge work going on, so I left after a few casts.
Caught some nice bluegills, onebrown trout, pumpkinseeds, green sunfish, agolden shiner and I almost hooked into a very nice largemouth bass. Kids and water mean plenty of noise,lots of splashing and lots offun.Normally, 750pm is about the timethe sulphurs start popping off. I saw some Iso's and huge stoneflies coming off and flying around.I caught a trophy Bluegill, no kidding check out the picture, almost 9 inches. I left my headlamp in the truck so I had to walkout before it got too dark and miss the potential spinner fall.
I then drove to another stretch of the crick and hooked up a few times fishing a brown spent spinner. I lost them at the bank.A Fish the mornings with a brown or white spent spinner and you might get a few takes on the surface. My favorite is a "John's Spring Creek Pupa" tied in size 18 and 20 (Trout Flies of The East--page 93). I caught two brookies on a CDC sulphur dry fly and the rest of the fish were caught with nymphs.
What an amazing fish, especially on a 2 wt bamboo fly rod with a fly reel that is dated to the 1930's or 1940's.
What a specimen.He looked like a submarine swimming in the water !!My first impression of the leviathan is that it was a wild fish. Tonights fishing provided a mixed bag of fish, a few smallwild brown trout, along with a few stocker browns, stockerrainbows and the brook trout. I topped it all off with a visit to Ted's house to show off the bamboo fly rod and talk shop.
It was about 40 degrees and raining.I didroll a larger fish on a midge, but aside from that, it was a very slow night.
Cast down and across and hop the flies upoff the bottom with quick upward lifts of the fly rod.The fish would really strike hard. I still have not figured out whyone day I will catch all browns, one day I will catch all rainbows and some days, you will catch a little of everything.
