HAZEMAG EPR celebrations for 60 years

first_imgHAZEMAG & EPR is a concern that evolved from the merging of two separate German companies, both of which have good reason to celebrate. Hazemag is celebrating 60 years this year, and EPR over 100 years more. During its long and varied history, the Eisenhütte Prinz Rudolph (Prince Rudolph Foundry), which has been resident in Dülmen, Westphalia for some 165 years, has progressed from its beginnings as the first industrial firm in Dülmen to a successful specialist manufacturer of mining and tunnelling equipment.The Prince Rudolph Foundry was established in 1842 and, by being aware of the economic situation of the time, developed from a conventional foundry to a much sought after specialist in the manufacture of mining machinery. The company benefited from the growth of the coal mining industry in the Ruhr and became a significant player in this field; this connection still exists today. Currently, EPR supplies mainly components for tunnelling, loading & dinting and drilling equipment under the TURMAG, HAUSHERR and Salzgitter brands. Since the long-term future of the mining industry in Germany is rather bleak, the company at a very early stage re-orientated itself towards overseas markets. Mining machinery is now exported, principally to Eastern European countries, Russia and China, in other words, those markets where coal mining is an expanding industry. It is now a matter of adapting the technology of well-proven, reliable and dependable machinery to meet the new demands, “a permanently challenging task for our designers and engineers,” the company says.More than 60 years ago – on August 14, 1946, Dr. Ehrhardt Andreas and Richard Rendemann applied for the registration of the company HAZEMAG in the Commercial Register in Münster. It is almost impossible to imagine the extremely difficult circumstances under which the first machines were fabricated in a Germany totally devastated as a result of WWII. The two founders of the company must have enjoyed a large slice of optimism and incredible business acumen to found a new company at this time. The basis on which the company was established was the HAZEMAG ANDREAS-type impact crusher. The brother of the founder, Arno Andreas, had already tested this innovative crushing system in Berlin during the war. In the aftermath of the war, this new impact crusher proved its superiority over other crushing systems in the necessary processing of the huge amounts of building rubble in the bombed-out cities and towns of Germany.There was certainly no lack of material to be processed and, within a short time of its founding, the company had sold more than 150 crushers, which converted the useless rubble into the high quality aggregate and chippings needed for reconstruction purposes.With the reduction in the amount of rubble available for processing, the crushers were adapted and deployed mainly in the crushing of non-metallic minerals such as limestone, gypsum, shale, coal and hard rock, all of which were available in large quantities. Of notable success were the applications in the global cement and gravel industries.The company has come a long way from the rather primitive beginnings of debris processing to the construction of the world’s largest rubble recycling plant. Much midnight oil was burnt during the preparations for this ambitious project prior to the signing of the contract in Dubai in December, 2007.Today, HAZEMAG products are used in practically all branches of raw material recycling and recovery. Impact crushers, hammer crushers, roll crushers, hammer mills, dryers, apron conveyors, wobbler feeders, push feeders, impact separators and hard materials separators are used effectively in various combinations for the design of efficient and reliable plants.In 1988, Salzgitter Maschinenbau acquired the facilities in Münster and re-located in Dülmen together with one of its other companies, the former Eisenhütte Prinz Rudolph (EPR). Following re-organisation within the Preussag group of companies, HAZEMAG became part of Noell Service- und Maschinentechnik. Finally, in 1999 the whole Dülmen location was taken over by Messrs. Schmidt Kranz & Co., and made into an independent limited company (GmbH), since which it has been known as HAZEMAG & EPR GmbH, Dülmen.In 2006, the company enlarged its product range by taking over the Mineral Processing Division (MinPro) of DBT in Lünen. The line of products from MinPro covers through-flow crushers for primary crushing stages as well as scraper chain conveyors. All the crushers from this new division operate on the horizontal flow principle, and have proved their operational reliability and safety value in many applications above and below ground for the processing of coal, potash and salt, non-metallic minerals, ore and rubble recycling.With an approximately 300-strong work force, HAZEMAG & EPR is a medium-sized company located in the pleasant country town of Dülmen in Münsterland, manufacturing steel products ranging from conventional- to giant-size to customers all over the world.On May 16, 2008, customers and business associates have the opportunity to see the whole company with a stroll round the premises and through the fabricating shops, to form their own impression of the capabilities and efficiency of the company. In a well-preserved building dating from the founding years of the company, there is a display illustrating the background history and giving an insight into those former days.On May 18, 2008, HAZEMAG & EPR will open its gates to employees and their relatives as well as interested member of the public. This ‘open day’ offers the opportunity to see what goes on behind the (usually) locked doors of the company. There will be an interesting programme for large and small which will certainly make this day a memorablelast_img read more

Debuchy hopeful of making World Cup

first_imgSaint-Etienne defender Mathieu Debuchy is hopeful of making the French World Cup squad this summer after impressing in Ligue 1 this seasonThe former Arsenal defender returned to Ligue 1 in January with Saint-Etienne after a disappointing spell in North London.Since his return to France, Debuchy has impressed and recently won a Player of the Month award with the full-back now hopeful of making a comeback to the France team ahead of this summer’s World Cup in Russia.“I was surprised to get back to this level so quickly.

Columbia River getting huge sockeye run

first_imgSockeye salmon — great table fare, but not good biters on sport gear — are streaming up the Columbia River in massive numbers and appear likely to be a record return this year.Tuesday’s count of 41,573 at Bonneville Dam was a record-high, topping Monday’s count of 38,756. The old daily count record was 30,690 on June 24, 2010.And, sockeye might be even more plentiful in the decades to come.“It’s an exciting success story of water management and ever-improving passage over the dams,” said Steve Smith, a Canby, Ore., fisheries consultant who works extensively with the Colville tribe.Cindy LeFleur of the Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife, chair of the Columbia River Technical Advisory Committee, said the panel of scientists determined on Monday the sockeye run is on track to be the forecasted record of 462,000.The cumulative count through Tuesday is 289,493. The current mark is almost 388,000 in 2010.Sockeye migrate through the lower Columbia in June and July, with the peak counts at Bonneville normally about July 1. They are an inland-origin fish, which needs rearing lakes in their natal watershed as part of their life cycle.The predictions for this summer are for 28,800 sockeye to return to the Wenatchee River, 1,900 to the Snake River and a whopping 431,300 to the Okanogan River.last_img read more

Three dead gray whales wash up on Kodiak Island beaches in one

first_imgWhale carcass. (Photo courtesy Kathy Burek, Alaska Veterinary Pathology Services)Three dead gray whales washed up on two different Kodiak Island beaches recently.Listen nowThe strandings happened within the span of a week, said Mandy Migura, Alaska Marine Mammal Stranding coordinator with NOAA.Three whales washing up in such a short span of time in the same area is concerning, Migura said. Preliminary results from necropsies should be back soon while more detailed reports will take more time.Gray whales are on their annual migration with their young from Mexico, where they winter. They are listed under the Marine Mammals Protection Act.Residents first reported June 25 a young gray whale lying on Pasagshak Beach, Migura said.“It sounded like some of the local residents had been seeing it for a few weeks prior to us receiving a report. And so we were able to work with a local group who is part of our stranding network, and they were able to go out and collect some samples. There is some discussion that the tongue was missing on this young animal. And so, if that is the case, we speculate its cause of death might have been due to a killer whale attack.”The Sun’aq Tribe of Kodiak will partner with NOAA to assess strandings on Kodiak.The second stranding came just two days later in the same area.“We received a second report on June 28 of an adult gray whale that was actually fairly fresh dead, that was also in Pasagshak Bay, in Kodiak, and we were able to get a veterinarian out to conduct a necropsy on this past Saturday,” Migura said.A third whale washed up just a few days later on a different part of the island.“On Sunday night, our local network partner sent an email saying that they had received a report of another fresh, dead gray whale near Port Lions,” Migura said. “On Monday they were going to go out for us and collect some samples.”Migura warns that the areas where the whales washed up should be avoided as the carcasses can attract bears.If you see a stranded whale, NOAA officials ask that you to take photos and call NOAA’s stranding hotline as soon as possible at: 1-877-925-7773.last_img read more

Game Boy Advance SP hacked into a Quakeplaying portable PC

first_imgThere were plenty of good games you could play on the Game Boy Advance SP. Quake 3 Arena obviously wasn’t one of them, but now it is. Provided you do a little bit of hardware modding first, that is. Make that a complete gut. Scrape out all the dated Nintendo bits, cram in an ARM dev board, a Teensy, a new screen, and a larger display, and you’ve got yourself a full-blown portable Linux emulation box.Despite being billed as a Raspberry Pi in the creator’s video and pictured next to a big ol’ Raspberry Pi sticker, the system was actually built around a $30 Hardkernel Odroid W. The company bills it as their version of a scaled-down Pi (complete with Pi-compatible GPIO and camera header) with additional built-in functionality. It’s powered by an ARM11 Broadcom processor clocked at 700Mhz with 512MB of RAM, and it measures just 60 x 36 mm and weighs only 8 grams.Its diminutive size left creator Johnny Parks plenty of room to cram in a bunch of additional hardware, including a 4-port USB hub (two external, for mouse and keyboard connections, and two internal). Here’s a look at his build, laid out in pieces prior to assembly:And here’s a look at the build in progress. He clearly spent a lot of time scraping contact points and soldering wires:With a bit of epoxy and hot glue to finish it all off, the result is an amazing hand-made, pocketable Game Boy PC. Johnny’s been kind enough to share the full details of his Game Boy Advance SP mod over on his personal site, so if you want to build one of your own all you need to do is order up the parts, take a deep breath, and start following along!last_img read more

Radiologists play a key role in the cancer care continuum after the initial diagnosis of prostate cancer. This includes regular imaging assessments to monitor growth, and tracking tumor changes to measure the effectiveness of various therapies. For the radiologist evaluating prostate cancer, it is key to first determine the severity of the disease, which determines whether the patient will be monitored over the course of several years, or if immediate treatment is required.“The greatest challenge is to distinguish patients who need aggressive treatment and those who are low-risk,” said Hedvig Hricak, M.D., Ph.D., chair of the Department of Radiology at Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center, New York. She spoke on prostate assessment at the 2014 Radiological Society of North America (RSNA) meeting in December. Aggressive prostate cancer is treated with radical prostatectomy (RP), radiation therapy (RT), brachytherapy or cryotherapy. All of these require post-treatment monitoring to ensure the therapy is working and see if new cancer activity is present, she explained.Hricak said contrast-enhanced magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) has emerged as the current standard for assessing local recurrence of prostate cancer after RP or RT. She explained that early detection of local recurrence is important to allow potentially curative salvage therapy. Prostate biopsies are usually ordered when prostate-specific antigen (PSA) levels reach 2.5 ng/mL or higher. There are no PSA levels that determine when a prostate MRI should be ordered, however she said the earlier the better for diagnosis and for detecting recurrence. “You should not wait for clinical symptoms before ordering an MRI,” Hricak said. “There also is definitely an emerging acceptance of MRI in newly diagnosed PSA biochemical recurrence.” It is important to know how MRI protocols for detecting local recurrence should be adjusted depending on the prior treatment and the questions being asked. Hricak offered several examples. After RT, T2-weighted MRI is limited due to post-radiation effects on the prostate such as glandular shrinkage, loss of normal zonal anatomy and reduced contrast between cancer and normal tissue caused by glandular atrophy and fibrosis. She said MRI should include both T2-weighted and diffusion-weighted imaging (DWI) sequences. A recent study suggests that in most patients, dynamic contrast-enhanced (DCE) MRI could be omitted after RT without lowering diagnostic performance. She said this also eliminates the risks and costs associated with the use of contrast. If salvage treatment is an option after RT, MRI offers locoregional staging. Post-RT MRI can evaluate the length of the urethra and may show urethral shortening (which has been associated with incontinence after primary RP), decreased urethral margin definition and other tissue changes that could conceivably affect treatment selection and planning. After surgery, in addition to DWI, the use of DCE/MRI is essential. Hricak explained that it can show small lesions and differentiate a tumor from scarring. MRI may help to determine whether post-RP local recurrence is amenable to salvage RT, and may aid RT planning. The Role of Nuclear ImagingAssessment of prostate cancer recurrence after emerging focal therapies remains problematic, since methods for reliably differentiating necrosis or scarring from tumors are lacking. In the future, Hricak said PET/CT with targeted tracers may be able to address this need. PET/CT and bone scanning are valuable in the search for nodal and osseous metastases, she explained, adding that the implementation of clinical PET/MRI and the use of new tracers will likely open new horizons in the assessment of recurrence.Hricak said nuclear imaging with PET/CT or PET/MRI also can help in evaluating prostate treatments, stating that nuclear scans can offer an attractive alternative to MRI for patients, since MRI requires use of an endorectal coil. “The patient is not going to keep coming back if you always use an endorectal coil,” she explained. New MRI Imaging TechniquesStandard contrast MRI often misses tumors that do not significantly differ from surrounding healthy tissues with contrast. For this reason, diffusion MRI is being used at some centers to measure the diffusion of water in and around the prostate. Diffusion MRI is a standard technique for brain imaging. Cancer tissues are denser than healthy tissues, which limits the amount and mobility of water within them. However, a big issue with diffusion MRI is that imaging can suffer from magnetic field artifacts that can distort the actual location of tumors by as much as 1.2 cm. This becomes an issue when surgeons are trying to determine if a tumor extends beyond the prostate and into adjacent nerve bundles.The new approach, called restriction spectrum imaging-MRI, or RSI/MRI, corrects for magnetic field distortions and focuses on water diffusion within tumor cells. This has the ability to more accurately image and plot a tumor’s location and extent, said Nathan White, Ph.D., assistant project scientist at UC San Diego. He is the co-inventor of the RSI/MRI technique and co-author of a recently published paper on the subject in the journal Prostate Cancer and Prostatic Diseases. “This new approach is a more reliable imaging technique for localizing tumors. It provides a better target for biopsies, especially for smaller tumors,” said Rebecca Rakow-Penner, M.D., Ph.D., a research resident in the Department of Radiology at UC San Diego and the study’s first author.The technique is also valuable in surgical planning and image staging, said David S. Karow, M.D., Ph.D., assistant professor of radiology at UC San Diego and the study’s corresponding author. “Doctors at UC San Diego and UCLA now have a non-invasive imaging method to more accurately assess the local extent of the tumor and possibly predict the grade of the tumor, which can help them more precisely and effectively determine appropriate treatment,” he concluded. Reference:1 Rakow-Penner, R A , White, N S, Parsons, J K, et al. “Novel Technique for Characterizing Prostate Cancer Utilizing MRI Restriction Spectrum Imaging: Proof of Principle and Initial Clinical Experience with Extraprostatic Extension.” Prostate Cancer and Prostatic Diseases, Jan. 6, 2015.  FacebookTwitterLinkedInPrint分享 A prostate MRI showing benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH).

Germany Chancellor Merkel on visit to Afghanistan

first_img Former Arizona Rep. Don Shooter shows health improvement Merkel flew to the northern city of Mazar-e-Sharif after sunrise on Friday. She was expected to stay only a few hours, said the spokesman, Lt. Col. Marco Schmidl. He declined to give further details, citing security concerns. She was travelling with German Defense Minister Thomas de Maiziere.On May 4, insurgents firing rockets killed a German soldier and wounded a second in northern Baghlan province. It was the first death of a German special forces soldier in Afghanistan. Considered to be the military’s elite forces, the German special forces soldiers are similar to the U.S. Navy SEALS. They were accompanying an Afghan-led military operation at the time. Since 2002, 35 German soldiers have been killed in Afghanistan in fighting. Another 17 died of non-combat injuries, including seven who died in a helicopter crash in Kabul in 2002.At the northern Kunduz military base, Merkel and the defense minister laid a wreath at a memorial wall, etched with the names of the 35 German soldiers who have been killed in Afghanistan since 2002. The wreath, in honor of Germany’s latest casualty, read only “Task Force 47, Special Forces,” because special forces soldiers remain anonymous even in death. New Valley school lets students pick career-path academies The final decision on Germany’s post-2014 deployment will be made by the next German government following September elections. Polls show Merkel is likely to win a third four-year term. While largely unpopular among Germans, the Afghanistan mission is supported by Germany’s mainstream political parties.Germany’s offer of troops also requires an invitation from the Afghan government.At a ceremony in the Afghan capital, Kabul, on Thursday, President Hamid Karzai said he wanted each of NATO’s 28 members to negotiate directly with his government about how many soldiers it wants to keep in Afghanistan, where they will be deployed and how the contingents would benefit the country.Protracted negotiations between the U.S. and Afghanistan over conditions for American troops after 2014 have so far not produced an accord. The U.S. insists on immunity from local prosecution as a condition.Schmidl said there were no plans for Merkel to meet with Karzai or talk to the Afghan president on the phone.“It is only a visit of our troops,” he said in a telephone interview.____Associated Press writer Geir Moulson contributed to this report from Berlin.(Copyright 2013 The Associated Press.

Milstead says best way to stop wrong-way incidents is driving sober Top Stories Comments   Share   “We will keep an eye on the political process moving forward here,” Merkel told the troops, according to a statement released by the government. “The presidential elections must be prepared and many things _ building up the economy, and people must be given hope _ have to be resolved.”Merkel emphasized Berlin’s intention to continue its military involvement in Afghanistan after 2014, urging other NATO countries to commit soldiers to Afghanistan.“Talks are still being conducted on this,” she said.With more than 4,000 troops deployed in northern Afghanistan, Germany is the third-largest international troop contributor in Afghanistan.

WikiLeaks claims NSA targeted German ministers beyond Merkel

first_img New Valley school lets students pick career-path academies 4 must play golf courses in Arizona The secrecy-spilling site’s latest report is likely to rekindle concerns in Germany that the NSA was engaged in widespread surveillance of its close ally. Last week, WikiLeaks published documents that appeared to show the NSA had eavesdropped on the French government, prompting anger in Paris.WikiLeaks said the new, partially-redacted list of 69 phone and fax numbers belonged to senior officials at Germany’s economy and finance ministries, among others.The site also published two documents it claimed were summaries of conversations intercepted — one involving Merkel and a second involving a senior aide — concerning the Greek debt crisis. The second conversation was intercepted by British intelligence, which passed it to the NSA, according to WikiLeaks.It wasn’t immediately possible to confirm the accuracy of the documents. But German newspaper Sueddeutsche Zeitung, which said it had been given access to the documents, reported on its website that the list appeared to be from a period between 2010 and 2012, and at least some of the numbers are still in use.WikiLeaks didn’t provide a source for the documents. But the site has a history of publishing confidential U.S. government files and one of its contributors, Sarah Harrison, is a close associate of Edward Snowden, the former NSA contractor who leaked secret documents exposing numerous U.S. surveillance programs. 3 international destinations to visit in 2019 Sponsored Stories German government officials didn’t immediately respond to a request for comment late Wednesday.The report came as members of Germany’s governing coalition indicated they want to appoint a former federal judge to review sensitive documents requested by lawmakers investigating the NSA’s activities in Germany.Copyright © The Associated Press.

Phew Everyone does

Phew. Everyone does that I have been floating ever since at one of the swimming pools in my summer homes in UK or in one of my yachts ‘somewhere in the Mediterranean’ (only my captain knows the location Yeah!) because anytime the banker or a investigating official can knock on my door asking me to pay back the money I owe them I can’t blame them though They narrate with a heavy heart that they have been given a deadline of March 2017 by this Rajan to clean up the bank balance sheets (disclose the NPAs) These guys are unnecessarily panicking and asking me to pay back Never have I done that in my life mind you But I’m not afraid anymore I have such immense confidence in our political system I can’t express my joy seeing Swamy’s daily tirade against that ‘not mentally fully Indian’ guy I absolutely wholeheartedly agree with Swamyji I don’t think he is even half-Indian I have never seen Rajan wearing a North Indian kurta or South Indian lungi He always in a western suit Why There is something seriously wrong with Rajan I strongly suspect he is a double agent for ISI and CIA Look at the way he utters all sorts of unnecessary words such as ‘intolerance’ ‘autonomy’ ‘one-eyed King’ and ‘Make for India’ Who does he thinks he is by the way Well if he predicted 2008 global financial crisis even I did Just that no one was around And what is this “I’m Rajan I do what I do” Is he Rajnikant of the Indian economy or what Enough of this Bu***hit Modiji I’m running out of patience Who will tell him to limit his gyan on what he is getting his salary for—‘macroeconomic stability’ ‘monetary policy dynamics’ ‘yield curves’ and ‘asset-liability mismatch’ There are more things he could talk on (I can get back on the specifics after reading a bit Bloody economics) Swamy is again right when he accuses Rajan of leaking sensitive information through the use of unauthorized email ids I strongly suspect Modiji that Rajan has already leaked last week’s sector-wise credit growth data to someone in the US treasury Mind you this data is not public yet As for the allegation on deliberately destroying the economic growth and jobs Swamy is again spot on In a country with Hong Kong-like infrastructure with abundant supply of power and water so much of foreign investments (Oh God) and easy environmental clearance high interest rate is the only thing that stands between us and economic growth Had Rajan cut interest rates by 300 basis points immediately in his first week in office India would have attained minimum 10% GDP growth and millions of jobs (and mind you this is a conservative estimate) One could always argue that inflation would have crossed GDP growth then But that’s only a lame excuse Why shouldn’t someone mistrust an economist like Swamy Modiji you have rightly observed that Rajan’s reappointment is not of media’s interest and is an administrative issue I agree In fact nothing that impacts us crony capitalists should be of media’s interest What you think is the reason for me closing down my airline my resignation from companies which were my family jewels and my current plight—just imagine I am forced to write to you even this letter from ‘somewhere in the Mediterranean’ This has never happened since Independence I urge you to continue to let our ‘Swamy and friends’ unleash their tirade against Rajan I am sure after a point Rajan would decide himself not to continue here even if you approach him with the request I see signs of that’s already happening Already some are accusingus of supporting the ouster of Rajan They have got it correct Once Rajan is out and someone more acceptable to you and me and more importantly ‘ek dam fully Indian’ comes to the post of RBI governor at that point I promise I will come back With love and

varsity Addressing the House on Sunday PU Vice-Chancellor Arun Kumar Grover said “The excess money collected from the fee hike will be spent on the EWS students in order to help them financially The university administration will also appoint a committee to increase the cash prizes that are given to the meritorious students All of these expenses will be made utilising the surplus funds generated from the fee increment” Discussing the issue of increased police interference on the campus Grover informed the House that a meeting with the IGP would soon be arranged to ensure ways of handling situations by minimising police interference Further approving the recommendations of the Panjab University Board of Finance the PU Senate gave the final nod for the proposed budget of Rs 51733 crore

the Senate also discussed ways of increasing the university’s financial income Implementation of paid parking installation of solar panels and reduced electricity usage starting of short-term summer programmes during the summer vacation generating more revenue through the university’s holiday home in Shimla adopting a common policy for renting out of university shops and renting vacant shops at the earliest were amongst the few proposals that were put forward The PU Think Tank had earlier recommended that the university buildings could be rented after classes in an attempt to raise more money “We can link our programmes with the industry which will not only help in revenue generation but will also help the students in skill development training” a member of the Senate pointed out The

university academically and repeated instances of Dr Chopra’s improper conduct Grover had recommended that no extension be given to him After a thorough discussion it was however decided that the issue would be reconsidered by the Syndicate PUTA and the departmental academic committee before a final call is taken “Until the re-examination is conducted let Dr Chopra continue teaching and drawing money from the university It is anyway the taxpayer’s money” stated a seemingly irked Grover after questions were raised on his intentions behind his suggestion not to give extension to Dr Chopra A discussion was also held on the retirement age for the teaching staff of the university “Does an extension in the retirement age and the consequent re-employment have more demerits than merits We need not allow re-employment; instead young professors should be appointed in these posts That will also help us in increasing employment opportunities for youngsters and in decreasing the
