Tweaked the EDL-based print spooler we ran to get print from Camp Lejeune so we could store more than 65,535 lines of print (hmmmm maybe it was 255 lines)... that made it possible for the "night shift" person to come in @ 5am and still get all the print off and ready by 7am... before, we had to start at 10pm to get the same amount of work done.

Absurd. Private insurance industry can do the exact same thing, deny coverage because of lifestyle. In fact private industry has an even greater incentive to do so... profit margins.

You're right that concrete isn't a guarantee... but true EF5 tornadoes are almost as rare as landfalling category 5 hurricanes... and EF4 tornadoes aren't a whole lot more common. On the other hand, EF0 tornadoes are abundant, EF1 tornadoes are common, and EF2 tornadoes aren't particularly UNcommon. Switching to Florida-style construction wouldn't eliminate the risk of death or injury from a tornado altogether (because frankly, the only place that's safe to be when an EF5 hits your house is "somewhere else, far away")... but it WOULD basically eliminate meaningful damage from common EF0 tornadoes, would dramatically reduce property damage and injuries from EF1 tornadoes, and would almost certainly reduce the death toll (though not necessarily number of injuries or number of houses rendered uninhabitable) for EF2 and EF3 tornadoes. So yes, an unlikely (but non-inconceivable) EF5 tornado hitting downtown Kansas City mid-afternoon would still result in unfathomable carnage... but the dozen or so EF0 and EF1 tornadoes that hit the KC metro area over any given 5-year timespan would barely earn more than a few minutes of semi-sensationalistic coverage on the local TV news (maybe CNN, if someone gets good video footage of the tornado itself & it's a slow-news day).

Submission + - SPAM: Fire Alarm Testing - Key To Preventing Fires

An anonymous reader writes: Fire alarm testing is a key part in preventing fires and making sure, if a fire does occur, all people in the building or area are safe and at less risk of injury. Fire alarms tests are legally required by all buildings which have a fire alarm system and these tests should be done regularly.

Every building manager will perform tests the minimum amount of times required in a year and many building managers will perform additional tests to ensure safety for the occupants. The process: The process of fire alarm testing is relatively simple and incredibly important. A fire in a building not only presents a chance to cause major damage to the structure but also presents a threat to occupants' safety. The first step in fire alarm testing will be to make sure all smoke and heat detectors are powered. All batteries in these units or in electrical panels they may be attached to must be tested on a regular basis. This is the first, and most obvious step, but many fires do occur simply because the heat or smoke detector had a dead battery. Along the same lines, all elements of the fire detection system will be checked to make sure that power is delivered and all aspects of the system are powered.

This includes making sure all heat and smoke detectors have fully charged batteries, that fire panels and electrical units are fully powered and operational, that all sounds and alarms and speaker systems are also powered. In relation to this, the next step in fire alarm testing will be to make sure that all sounds and alarms are working. Some systems have sounds delivered via bells and other systems have sounds delivered via speakers. The sound sent through the speakers might be a bell simulation or a distinct fire alarm sound. Many systems will also allow users and fire fighters to communicate with the occupants of the building. As an example, in an apartment building there might be speakers in individual flats and through these speakers a fire fighter can communicate to the residents of the building, notifying them that an alarm has been activated and investigation is under way and all residents are to remain in their flat. The fire fighter can then inform residents of any resolution, such as the alarm has been investigated, no fire was found and all residents are safe to continue about their business.

These speakers are relatively new within the past 10-20 years and are more commonly used in larger buildings, especially residential units. All fire panels which indicate where the alarm was first set, what floor, what area of the building, etc. will be tested to make sure they have power and are functioning. All electrical panels which source the fire alarm system will also be tested for power and functionality. As part of the overall testing process, a simulated escape might be made mandatory for the occupants of the building just to make sure all escape routes are known. Fire alarm testing steps can be summed up as: smoke and heat detectors functioning and powered, bells and alarms functioning, and all indicator panels working.

It's questionable whose opinion is remarkably naïve. Doctors have been abdicating their responsibility for patient care for financial reasons over the past thirty years. And even more so over the past five to ten in their rush to be absorbed into giant healthcare systems who exercise corporate power over their practices. Ergo, patient care is subjugated to the corporate bottom line. Now... doctors and the AMA could've sought other solutions utilizing not only their financial but also their professional expertise influence. After all, no one else is legally permitted to practice medicine in every state except licensed medical professionals. Thus, if they wanted to, they could dictate conditions in the medical/insurance economy. But they haven't. Why? Money, just like the insurance agents/companies. So who's worse, the people who are in business to make money or the ones who took the Hippocratic Oath to serve? Seems clear doesn't it?
