We Have A Little Emergency (W.H.A.L.E.) program

From the http://www.whaleprogram.org/ website:

“W.H.A.L.E.™ stands for “We Have A Little Emergency.” This car seat safety program was developed by Connie Day, a caregiver from Virginia. In the event of an automobile accident that incapacitates the adult driver and passengers, rescue personnel will have a difficult time identifying children riding in car safety seats. In some situations, these adults may not be related to the child passenger; therefore, conventional means of obtaining information will be useless. In these cases, W.H.A.L.E.™ can make a significant difference.”

The program consists of three parts:

1. An Information Label is attached to the back of the car seat, which provides important information about the child, such as name, date of birth, medical history and who to contact in case of emergency. The label is placed on the back of the car seat where it is not visible from outside the vehicle. This ensures the privacy of this personal information.

2. Two W.H.A.L.E™ Car Seat Stickers are attached to the sides of the seat.

3. Two W.H.A.L.E™ Vehicle Stickers are attached to the rear/side windows of the vehicle. Each of these stickers depicts the W.H.A.L.E™ logo and will alert emergency personnel that the occupants participate in the program.

Breathes easier by design

AirWave® – the valve-free respirator that breathes easier:

  • Less resistance than other leading disposable respirators*
  • Even less exhale resistance than the leading valved respirators*

More surface, more airflow

The outstanding performance of AirWave®is due to its patented, wave design technology. It allows more airflow in and out of the respirator for cool comfort and easier breathing.

  • Unique waves double the filter surface area of our comparable respirator
  • Dura-Mesh® shell provides bi-directional protection from dirt on the outside and moisture on the inside

The Airwave is available in an N95 with classic 2-strap or with Smartstrap. It is also available in a P95, a N100 with Ventex Valve and a N95 with nuissance level Organic Vapor

Argentina Ushers in the “Safety Truck”

Technology that we didn’t have even a couple of years ago suddenly seems impossible to live without. Case in point is the back-up cameras in most newer model trucks and SUVs.

In Argentina, where the highway infrastructure includes a lot of two lane highways, almost one person each hour is killed, most from trying to pass trucks and other vehicles where visibility is not good.

Samsung, realizing that there was a simple solution to the problem started rolling out the “Safety Truck”. What it does is to essentially put cameras on the front of the truck and project what it sees onto a large set of panels on the back of the truck so that the driver whose vision is blocked can actually see what is in front. A simple concept that could save thousands of lives.

Have a look at the YouTube video:

Can the wrong choice of gloves contribute to arthritis?

The result of a medical study in Sweden has found that “...exposure to mineral oil has a 30% increased risk of developing rheumatoid arthritis in later life.” That’s pretty significant!

ATG

A new whitepaper by ATG Intelligent Glove Solutions discusses the problem inherent in choosing the wrong glove when working with oils. The problem is that oil on the skin is absorbed into the body.
