PETALING JAYA: Taps will run dry again in Selangor, this time in parts of Shah Alam. A total of 26 areas there will suffer water supply disruption for a day. Syarikat Bekalan Air Selangor Sdn Bhd (Syabas) yesterday said the disruption is due to works on one of the main pumps at the Sungai Selangor Phase 3 (SSP3) water treatment plant. Repair work at the water treatment plant is at 50% as at 3pm yesterday and is expected to be completed by 9pm yesterday. “We are targeting restoration of supply by stages starting early tomorrow morning (May 17),“ it said in a statement yesterday. “The repair work does not involve any water treatment plant shutdown but just a reduction of treated water production for distribution. It will cause temporary water supply to several areas.” Syabas will set up two local service centres this morning to update residents on the supply. It will also deploy water tankers to affected areas. “Public water pipes will also be opened at … [Read more...] about Water supply disruption in parts of Shah Alam
Does reverse osmosis make water acidic
Inland cultivation of expensive tiger puffer fish has spread from Tochigi Prefecture to other areas in Japan, helping revitalize local economies. Intensive research was undertaken to make use of local hot springs. Cultivation pools have been set up in plastic greenhouses on a former swimming pool site in Nasukarasuyama, Tochigi Prefecture. In the pools, tiger puffers, which grow to about 35 centimeters in length and one kilogram in weight, swim smoothly. Nasukarasuyama-based company Yumesozo, which cultivates tiger puffer in water from a hot spring, launched its business in the neighboring town of Nakagawa about 10 years ago. The company currently sells 25 tons of puffer fish a year to about 150 stores, mainly in the prefecture. President Katsuaki Noguchi, 62, focused on the prefecture’s abundant chloride springs as a resource to develop the region, while running an environmental consulting firm in the prefecture. As he researched the composition of the hot springs’ … [Read more...] about Japanese company cultivates puffer fish in hot spring water
MIAMI: A component meant to slow an aircraft on landing was inoperative on the Boeing jetliner that slid off a runway into a river at a Florida military base, injuring 22 people, investigators said on Sunday (May 5).The failure of the left-hand "thrust reverser" on the Boeing 737-800 was one of the factors investigators were looking at, as well as a request by the pilots to change runways, said National Transportation Safety Board Vice Chairman Bruce Landsberg.The plane chartered by the U.S. military landed during a thunderstorm at Naval Air Station Jacksonville on Friday night and was arriving from Naval Station Guantanamo Bay in Cuba with 136 passengers and seven crew members.It slid off the end of the runway into shallow water and sank up to its wings, forcing passengers to walk along the wings to safety."The aircraft had been in maintenance and the maintenance log noted that the left hand thrust reverser was inoperative," Landsberg told a press conference, explaining that the … [Read more...] about ‘Thrust reverser’ broken on plane that slid into Florida river
By Kevin McGran Sports Reporter Wed., May 1, 2019 Brad Marchand’s true colours are showing through, huh? Gonna guess a fair bit of Leaf Nation is rooting for the Columbus Blue Jackets at the moment. Or maybe you should be with the Marlies, who signed Egor Korshkov (though his name is Yegor on hockeydb.com), for their playoff run. Game 1 vs. Cleveland (Columbus’s top farm team) is tonight. Korshkov, whose Leaf contract kicks in July 1 and runs two years, will stand out because he’s actually big. Six-foot-four. We’ll see what kind of pro he is, if he can skate, etc. His numbers in the KHL don’t exactly scream: “Prospect.” Injured most of this year, he had five points in 19 games, and 65 points in 119 career games with Lokomotiv Yaroslavl. He had a terrific 2016 World Juniors, with eight points in seven games, losing the gold medal game to Kasperi Kapanen’s Finland. He was drafted by the Leafs that summer, already 19. … [Read more...] about Leafs forwards make the grade: Marner is the key
The outcome may rest with Dtac, the telecom operator holding his mobile phone records. Thanathorn’s accusers say there is no way he had time to travel by road from Buri Ram to Bangkok on the January 8 deadline to sign the transfer of his media shares to his mother. Unless his chauffeur was driving at 200 kilometres per hour, that is. Thanathorn’s response? Check with Dtac and see where I was on the afternoon of January 8, he told veteran journalist Suthichai Yoon in an interview. Dtac responded that any request for Thanathorn’s phone records had to come from the man himself; nobody else could check. It’s an extremely important issue. Even if Thanathorn ends up having his election candidacy nullified, the events of January 8 will go a long way toward defining his political fate. Being disqualified for an oversight regarding his V-Luck Media shares would make him a political martyr. Telling a lie to protect himself or being involved in fabricating evidence … [Read more...] about Thanathorn’s acid test: The real deal or just another political opportunist?
