21c Brings Art and Rooms to Durham

Strictly speaking, pink penguins aren native to Durham, but they found a home here, and their presence is making the local environment even more hospitable for art enthusiasts.

No, Durham doesn have a new exotic zoo. We talking about the pink penguins that are the symbol of the 21c Museum Hotel. (Though a real life pink penguin would be
cheap ray bans pretty great. And, to be precise, the 21c penguins are actually fuchsia.)

Visitors can also find artworks decorating the dining room of the 21c restaurant and bar, The Counting House. The restaurant celebrates North Carolina seafood, with fresh catches from the coast prepared by rotisserie and roasting techniques. There is also an emphasis on fresh, seasonal ingredients, and an innovative cocktail menu that can add a special touch to a meal or become the centerpiece of a night on the town.

Guests staying at the 21c will also find artworks throughout the hotel, including in the spa and lounge located in the basement, which used to be the vault of the bank that was originally housed in the building. The rooms are decorated in an art deco style, ensuring that all aspects of the stay are imbued with an artistic twist.

The 21c is also just one of many exciting new hotels coming to Durham. New additions currently under construction or are in the planning stages include The Durham, a boutique hotel featuring a rooftop bar and restaurant from
cheap ray ban outlet James Beard Award winning chef Andrea Reusing; the Jack Tar, a modern 75 room boutique hotel with; a new Residence Inn built in the imprint a former hospital; and two Home2 Suites.

Australian settler

"I treated the men as human beings, not as caged beasts."

David Hoy gave his life to building fine ships, and to saving the men and boys in his care from lives of crime.

Scotsman David Hoy arrived in Van Diemen’s Land in 1824; he was a ship’s carpenter and boat builder. While building ships at Macquarie Harbour he was caught up in the dramatic seizure of the brig Frederick by a group of convicts. Put ashore, he and a few companions walked for eight days along the west coast until they were found.

His health never really recovered. He went to Port Arthur as Master Shipwright in 1836 and remained there until he retired in 1848.

Hoy took great pride in his work; he achieved wonders with the men and boys who worked for him. Few had any trade skills, but under his instruction they turned out ships as good as any in the colony.

William Moriarty, Superintendent of Government Vessels and Port Officer in Hobart
cheap ray bans praised Hoy for ‘making fair tradesmen out
cheap ray ban outlet of the boys and men’ and Hoy himself claimed to have played an important role in their reformation, asserting that ‘many of them are now respectable and useful members of Society’.

Although we do not know what the Port Arthur men and boys thought of him, he seems to have been liked by the Macquarie Harbour mutineers. When they put him ashore they made sure that he had a decent coat and shoes, bandages and two bottles of wine.

David Hoy looked like an old man when he died in his early fifties. He had suffered a war wound, exposure during his ordeal after the mutiny, and a severe spinal injury and a
discount ray bans fractured skull in dockyard accidents. He paid a high price for his passion.

As you move about the Dockyardat Port Arthur,
cheap ray bans you will hear sounds evoking a rich maritime history. Let yourself be transported back to a time when David Hoy ran one of the busiest dockyards in Van Diemen’s Land.Articles Connexes:

NEW DELHI: Sudhakar Kondisetty, SpiceJet’s senior vice president for information technology, has quit, the second top executive to step down in less than one month after the new owner Ajay Singh came onboard.

The airline
Michael Kors handbag outlet may see the exit of some more "highly paid" executives in the coming months due to focus on cost rationalisation, sources told PTI here.

Kondisetty had put in his papers late last month and was allowed to leave the budget carrier on the last day of April, they said.

Earlier, SpiceJet chief commercial officer Kaneswaran Avili too had left the carrier on April 10 on the grounds that he wanted to pursue "certain entrepreneurial opportunities".

Kondysetty had moved to SpiceJet in April last year, when the then promoter Kalanithi Maran announced appointment of a series of senior level executives at the carrier.

Ajay Singh, a co founder of SpiceJet who exited the airline in 2010, took back its control after acquiring the entire 58.46 per cent stake of Kalanithi Maran and Kal Airways Pvt. Ltd in February as part of a revival plan.

As part of
cheap Michael Kors the plan, approved by the Civil Aviation Ministry, Singh has committed an investment of Rs 1,500 crore in the carrier.

"We expect a few more highly paid senior executives to leave the airline in the
Michael Kors handbags outlet coming months as the new owner’s focus is going to be on cost rationalisation in the current fiscal," the sources said.

Of his Rs 1,500 crore investment plan in SpiceJet, Singh has already pumped in Rs 500 crore.

Immediately after injecting the first tranche of Rs 500 crore and taking over the ownership, Singh had hinted at bringing in new people into the airline’s management.Articles Connexes:

Bubbles crystallize into spherical beauty during freezing temps

Arlington’s Angela Kelly of Kelly Images and Photography has been featured in this blog before for her beautiful natural displays of dew drops and melting frost.

But when she heard we were about to be invaded by a chilly arctic wind, she decided to try her hand at something new: Frozen bubbles.

"When I learned that we were expecting to see our coldest temperatures last week since last February,
Michael Kors discounts I knew I had to try to capture the ice we were bound to see it in its best
Cheap Michael Kors handbags (and most interesting) form," she told me.

So she and her 7 year old son ventured out on some very frigid mornings last week when the temperatures
cheap Michael Kors ranged from 9 to 12 degrees.

Then, using a homemade solution from a recipe that she found on the Internet that combined dish soap, karo syrup and water, they gave Jack Frost several individual easels for him to paint his magic.

"We blew the bubbles across the top of our frozen patio table and also upon the hood of my car and then we watched in awe as each individual bubble froze with their own unique patterns," Kelly said. "We noted how they would freeze completely before the sun rose but that once the sun was in view they would defrost along the tops or cease freezing altogether. We also noted how they would begin to deflate and implode in on themselves making them look like alien shapes or in some cases shatter completely leaving them to look like a cracked egg."

She said it was so cold that some of the smaller bubbles would freeze mid air and drop like stones to the ground.

Michael Kors handbags outlet we ever
cheap Michael Kors too old to play with bubbles?" she asked, rhetorically. "I really think that this is the most fun, unique and beautiful series I’ve
discount Michael Kors done yet!"

You can see more of her amazing natural photography frozen bubbles, melted
cheap Michael Kors outlet frost and others, on her Facebook page.

While the beauty of the region will certainly be a topic of discussion during the broadcasts, I’m sure our rather soggy/cool reputation will come up once or thrice as well.

But while you might think rain would be the biggest challenge golfers might have assumed when they started plotting their strategy of playing a Pacific Northwest course (and it will, at least a little bit) it turns out it’s the wind that could have a far greater effect

Can I get a DPF Delete

TORONTO, Ont. As long as there have been pollution controls on engines, someone has tried to mess with them, either by removing, bypassing or modifying components. With all the distrust over newer truck engines, it not entirely surprising that some owner/operators and small fleet owners might consider tampering with their exhaust gas recirculation (EGR) and diesel particulate filer (DPF) systems.

But what is surprising is how much of this is going on. Although it is technically illegal to obstruct or dismantle pollution controls on trucks, the almost total lack of enforcement across Canadian jurisdictions has allowed some vendors to quickly fill this niche. Calling around, within half an hour, I found several independent garages in Ontario and Quebec that would remove and delete the EGR/DPF systems from almost any EPA compliant engine.

Either by Internet or word of mouth, truck owners are attracted to shops and vendors that promise better fuel mileage, more horsepower and an end to expensive DPF maintenance bills. With the addition of a straight pipe running through the gutted DPF canister, the modified tractors look almost identical to the ones coming from the factory.

Beyond the reach of Environment Canada, and existing in the grey area of seemingly unregulated modifications, the practice seems to have picked up steam in the last six months. One garage in Montreal has a two week waiting list and claims to process 20 rigs per day. A simple search of the Internet turned up an online vendor in British Columbia who openly boasted, UP TO 3 MPG! can eliminate the DPF EGR from your Cat C7,C9, C13 or C15, Cummins ISB, ISC, ISL, ISX, Detroit DDEC 4 engines. president of J Ball Electronics, Don Jenner, answered the phone himself when I called an 800 number listed on the above Web site, posing as the owner of a 2009 Peterbilt having problems with the DPF system.

and about four million other people! he joked. can take you back to the good old days, he assured me. He promptly e mailed me a prospective work order and pricing for scenarios as well as step by step instructions on how to remove the turbo and EGR cooler. Most likely, his clients would engage a private shop to get their work done using the plates and gaskets that can also be ordered from this supplier, depending on what strategy is employed to defeat the soot burner and EGR cooler.

Reprogramming the ECM to run at a much leaner mixture is crucial to this process and costs thousands of dollars. Evidently, DPF deletion takes about six hours to complete, but the real cash cow in all this is the software. Once the engine codes have been hacked and modified, the program costs nothing to copy and is easy to franchise to other garages, and is the most expensive part of the procedure.

Checking with a few black market garages, the price for the modifications varies from around $3,000 $6,600 depending on the model engine and which methodology the customer wishes to pursue. And Jenner didn flinch when I ask him if the tampering is illegal, although he admitted, are bending the rules. Another vendor admitted, after some prodding, is illegal guess. over the phone conversations with other DPF Delete providers, assurances were given that this won hurt the engine, but rather, will dramatically increase performance. And the fuel savings can
Michael Kors handbags outlet be astronomical, tens of thousands of litres per year is the claim. One garage owner in Central Ontario told me that I could expect to get 50 or 60 more horsepower and much better mileage. More importantly, he promised to tune the exhaust so that it could pass emissions thresholds set by the Ministry of Transportation during inspections that are required every two years in Ontario. seemed to concur: had lots of guys (from Ontario) running these and haven had any complaints or issues. worth noting
discount Michael Kors that these are not small, fly by night repair shops, as some drivers suggested on the CB radio. The businesses I contacted were mainstream engine tuning and truck repair operations. One fellow was hungry enough for business that he called me back a couple of times, and told me he been doing these conversions for two years. He also claimed to have deleted the DPF EGR on an entire fleet of Class 8 trucks.

Most owner/operators have heard rumours of this kind of thing going on, others may know someone who has had their emissions system After getting stuck behind snowplows with a bunch of truck drivers on my way into Toronto last week, opinion on the CB radio was mixed. One driver was annoyed that people are getting away with breaking the law and not playing fair. Another driver told of a bad experience trying to bypass emissions controls on his 2007 engine, and had to replace the whole system eventually, so he obviously didn recommend it.

But frustration around EPA compliant engines post 2007 is understandable. Replacement parts are very expensive: a blown EGR cooler can cost thousands of dollars. Perhaps part of the problem lies with the OEMs, themselves, and poor communications after some start up problems with the first generation EGRs. It not hard to find drivers who have had problems with these engines. One service manager
Michael Kors handbags outlet told me about a fleet of 12 trucks that was literally to the yard because of DPF problems.

Via e mail, owner/operator Elwood Rines complained about the cost of maintaining the DPF, cleaning the filter and injectors and of the things that the dealer doesn tell you about. Rines runs long haul for Bison Transport out of Winnipeg. He had heard through the grapevine that DPF deletion was going on.

wondered when guys would start tampering with the exhaust, he quipped.

But Rines is pretty sure removing the EGR/DPF is not the solution. interested, said Rines. traded in a 2009 last April because it was regenerating at inappropriate times. But this 2013 Volvo has been good so far with mileage between 7 and 7.5 mpg. is worth noting that some of the shops I called were strongly against this practice, while others were quite willing to provide referrals to places that had no qualms about doing so. But one garage manager and part owner takes a dim view of businesses offering this service.

is totally illegal and unethical, according to Joe Cuffaro of Cambec Diesel in Montreal, Que. trucks are born with this. In the long run they may have to reverse the process. suggests that it is only a matter of time before provincial governments crack down on these operations.

not the case that these trucks are spewing a lot of pollution, he says. you do a sniffer test on them you find they run very, very clean. But what gives them the right to remove the original equipment? If I Paccar, I have to answer to federal regulations, but who do these guys answer to? The worst case scenario would be if one of our customers got nailed doing this and it got traced back to us. That why we don do it. delete suppliers might argue that they are providing a service that customers want, and since the modified units will pass emissions tests, what is the harm in doing so? As well, if the regulations are vague, unenforceable and no one has been charged, why not provide this option?

But from another perspective, disconnecting emiss

ions controls is wrong on many levels. The tragedy of this situation is that the latest EPA10 compliant engines seem to have most of the bugs worked out of them, and they produce almost zero NOx and extremely low levels of particulate. If everyone followed the rules, the case could be made that these
replica Michael Kors outlet newer engines shouldn even be required to undergo emissions
fake Michael Kors testing as the air coming out of the exhaust is almost breathable.

But removing EGR and DPF systems from trucks means you running the emissions wide open once again, and we back to pre 2002 levels. And taking a larger view, widespread EGR/DPF tampering is a step backwards for an industry and manufacturers that have taken great pains to show they are good environmental players. Although provincial environment ministries have dropped the ball on this issue, there are some indications that they are starting to pay attention, and that enhanced fines and beefed up enforcement cannot be very far off.

This is part two of a two part series on emissions tampering. You can read part one here. All to
Michael Kors outlet make the politicians look good and have the public think they are doing something for the environment. You ever see the amount of smoke coming out of an engine when the EGR valve fails? No way
fake Michael kors handbags outlet that can be better for the environment. We had a truck parked for 6 weeks and 5 different shops including 2 Cummins dealers could not find the problem. After $8000 dollars and nothing fixed, a Cummins dealer quietly told us to unplug the EGR valve and see if it fixes the problem. He said they couldn do it themselves and the computer couldn tell them if that was the problem. But he said run it a couple days like that and we would know if that was the problem. So you tell me, when the dealer that manufactures the engine can even diagnose the problem, what choices do we have?

I not condoning this practice but if it is as widespread as you say it is Harry, someone needs to ask why are these people spending thousands of dollars per truck to have this equipment removed? I don think anyone is actually against clean air, nobody wants pollution, so why remove this equipment at great expense? The reason is because it doesn work, and makes the vehicle unreliable, and too expensive to operate, as well as too heavy in some applications. The OEMs and the government agencies that mandated these poorly thought out and poorly designed systems are the root cause of these problems, so the end users should not have to accept all the blame here. A weight allowance to compensate for the added weight of this equipment, as well as some kind of air tax credit to help maintain these unreliable systems, would help somewhat. Bottom line is that people in government and at the OEM level need to realize that trucks are not cars, they are industrial equipment, and should be designed to industrial standards, not the same standards as light duty cars are. I laughed when I read the emissions warranty on my 2012 Volvo, it is the same as my car warranty, 60 months or 161000 km ( 5 years or 100,000 miles). Less than one years warranty under normal truck useage. What does that tell you about the manufacturer confidence in their equipment? And speaking of other industrial equipment, what are the emission standards for railroad locomotives, ships, aircraft, and construction equipment?

with a few black market garages Harry? Seems like a lot of chicken little talk here. I don know of a lot of small fleets or owner operators that don cross the border.

If you a regional operator, how do you get around a mandatory emissions test in Ontario? Seems to me that if someone can devise an alternative to the slap dash methods used by the industry to pass emissions and it works, then I say they built a better mousetrap as opposed to calling them market garages And I would imagine that the thousands of people that have gone or are going broke trying to run 2008 spec junk would agree with me.

I leave the comments for another day when we discuss predatory pricing.

Well John, should I phrase it reputable, mainstream shops that are offering quasi legal services Though, I sure there are technicians and mechanics in smaller garages who would do this work. Heck, there probably a video on U Tube that shows you how to do it. One would have to get the engine codes, though, and be able to reprogram the ECM. And these larger businesses have done their homework, researching specific engine types and fine tuning their craft yes they claim they pass
Michael kors handbags outlet opacity tests in the US and California or wherever. And wouldn it be great to forget about that pesky DEF light?

Lastly, Dave, don consider myself a shill for the OTA and never have been. Leave that to the Road Knights.

Well, thanks for publishing this and making it more known. I can see the end coming now, just like what has happened to the pickup truck tuners. Pretty soon we will all be forced to go even more broke thanks to the EPA and the unreliable, unefficient junk engines they are forcing upon us.

I said it before all the recent advertising, I can see them putting an end to the glider kit trend too.

I even HAD to delete my pickup just to make it somewhat reliable and get any kind of fuel mileage. These are very sad times.Articles Connexes:

"We were fortunate," Peggy Karasek said. "We were able to contain the fire just to that area of the room."Don’t get burned

cheap Michael Kors handbags outlet of consumer products say they’ve fielded dozens of reports this year of cell phone meltdowns that have resulted in injury and property damage. Consumer Product Safety Commission.

The incidents have involved a tiny percentage of the 170 million cell phone subscribers in the United States. But consumer advocates believe that the increase in battery failures points to a worrying trend.

"What we’ve seen over the years is a spike in bad batteries of many kinds," CPSC spokesman Scott Wolfson said.
fake Michael kors handbags outlet "This year, we’ve seen cell phones explode, and there have been reports of fires and of people getting burned on different parts of their bodies."

Treacherous batteries aren’t the only potential dangers cell phone users face. Cellular phones have long been rumored to contribute to tumors in the brain, a notion that gained some credence last week with a report from a Swedish research institute. Officials in some states have outlawed the

A dropped phone can also trigger an explosion, depending on how the device lands.

The threat of cell phone battery malfunctions is coming into focus a little more than a year after reports of exploding phones first began to surface in the United States, following back to back incidents in the Netherlands. In August 2003, a 33 year old Dutch woman was injured when her Nokia phone exploded in her hands.

October 1, 2007

Zenn Motor plans to release a new line of cars in a few weeks that will run on more powerful AC motors but consumers will have to wait for vehicles that feature new energy technology. To date, Toronto based Zenn has inserted DC
cheap Michael Kors handbags outlet motors into its cars. A DC motor can provide a lot of torque at low speeds, but it begins to decline fairly rapidly as the engine runs at higher rpms (revolutions per minute), said Zenn CEO Ian Clifford. The amount of torque an engine can produce directly relates to its performance, so the more torque, the more performance.

In an AC motor, torque doesn’t decline in the same manner. "In a city like San Francisco, you can accelerate into a hill and keep your speed," Clifford said.

The new cars also go farther. The older DC motor powered cars can go about 30
fake Michael kors handbags outlet to 35 miles on a charge, he
michael kors handbags outlet said, while the news ones with AC motors will go 40 to 50 miles. Zenn also made the roof black
cheap Michael kors handbags outlet on the new cars for a touch of style. The cars now look more like Mini Coopers.

Rival Miles Automotive already sells low speed, limited range electric car with AC motors.

While a 50 mile range is probably too low for a regular consumer car, it works in the niche market that Zenn mines. Zenn’s cars are low speed electric vehicles. That is, they contain governors that limit the speed to 25 miles per hour, tops. Universities and military bases buy them to replace the diesel burning maintenance and grounds keeping trucks. (The Department of Defense, in fact, has a mandate to increase its purchases of low speed vehicles.)

Although you can’t take them on freeways, low speed vehicles are legal on city streets, so you can use them for beer runs to the convenience stores; retirement communities are a target market.

Washington state and Montana, ever the rebels, have passed laws allowing these cars to crank it up to 35 miles per hour, but Zenn for the moment is sticking to the federal standard.

Approximately 20,000 to 40,000 low speed vehicles are shipped a year, Clifford estimated. Competitors in the market include
cheap Michael Kors handbags outlet Miles (check out a

test drive of a Miles car here) and Zap. A few dealerships in California (Davis, Berkeley) have Zenns
michael kors handbags outlet on the lot.

Zenn’s new cars run on an EV31A A Discover lead acid battery pack, which was an upgrade from earlier models.

Zenn plans to produce freeway legal cars, but is waiting to get
Michael Kors handbags outlet energy storage units from EEStor. The somewhat secretive EEStor says it has an ultracapacitor that

can power an electric car better (and farther) than a lithium ion battery pack. EEStor has several partisans and detractors, but few have seen the company’s technology up close.

Although EEStor has had to delay its energy storage units, Zenn expects to start receiving some this year. An investor in the company, Zenn has the right to obtain the first units from EEStor. Lockheed Martin has signed a development deal with EEStor as well and is expected to receive prototypes late in 2008.

"They are pretty bullish about delivering product to us in 2008," Clifford said.

The market for highway capable battery electric vehicles (EVs) was documented in 2000, using data from Dohring, a respected auto industry research firm. The Green Car study projected annual EV sales passing 200,000 five years after market introduction of a practical all round EV.

The apparent perpetual motion engine is perplexing, especially after all the impossible to market ‘miracle cars’ I’ve read about over the last twelve years. I’ll follow up on it, since scientific endorsement is implied in the story in Comment 3.Articles Connexes:
