Santa Rita, NM Chino Mine (# 0809)

A broader view of the mine. Per the operator (Freeport-McMoRan), there is a long history of mining ore at the site and open-pit mining started in 1910.

In this picture there’s three haul trucks heading up and to the right, and two (plus dust cloud from another) heading up to the left – each of those haul trucks is so large that a pickup looks like a toy. They’re also a good example of the problems with modern economics/employment – at some mines the haul trucks are now driverless, operated by a smaller number of technicians at computer screens.

Taken near the Rogers Limestone / Sand Quarry

Nashville, Tenn.-based Rogers Group Inc. will invest $8 million in a new system to more efficiently process limestone mined from beneath the surface at its mine in eastern Jefferson County.

The company will remove an old conveyor system and install a more efficient version at Jefferson County Stone Quarry, said Rogers Group vice president Les Geralds.

The new system will have a series of rock crushers that will allow various sizes of stone to be produced in less time.

The quarry is located on Avoca Road off Old Henry Road near the Gene Snyder Freeway. Rogers Group began underground limestone mining there in 1999.

Ground was broken on the renovation last month. The work, which is being done by Process Machinery Inc. of Shelbyville, is expected to be complete by July 1.

Per-hour capacity to increase by 200 tons
The new system will allow Jefferson County Stone Quarry to process 850 tons of limestone an hour. The plant, which has a total of 50 employees, currently can process about 650 tons an hour.

The stone is used for driveways, roadways and concrete production.

Geralds declined to disclose the quarry’s annual revenue figures, but he said the quarry ships between 1.5 million and 2 million tons of stone a year at priced at $5 to $7 a ton.

"The key is getting trucks in and out quicker," Geralds said, explaining that each contractor dump truck currently is loaded with stone or gravel and sent on its way in about 10 to 12 minutes.

The new system will allow a truck to be loaded every three or four minutes, which means as many as 1,000 trucks could be loaded each day.

The system was designed by Rogers Group engineers, who have designed similar systems for other Rogers quarries.

From Stone Age to digital age
The loading system is the latest improvement in stone processing and loading at the quarry.

About five years ago, Rogers began assigning truck drivers a radio frequency identification tag. It allows them to arrive at the quarry, have their trucks automatically loaded at a stone-dispensing bin, then check out with a load, all without interacting with another person.

Geralds estimated that about 15 hauling companies regularly buy stone from the quarry, along with various independent haulers that purchase stone less frequently.

The RFID system, which has been in use at the quarry for more than four years, has sped up the paperwork and billing process involved with purchasing stone, Geralds said.

"We have seen a 30 (percent) to 40 percent time savings since implementing this system," Geralds said. "We are hoping that this new system will further cut down the time it takes to load a truck."

He added that computer-controlled machinery that dispenses the stone also is more accurate than humans, ensuring accuracy within 200 pounds. In the past, it was common for trucks, which typically carry loads of 70,000 pounds to 80,000 pounds, to be overloaded by 1,000 pounds or more.

An impression from “Interstellar”

An impression from “Interstellar”

According to the ticket computer network of the Korean Film Commission on 18th, the film drew audiences totaling 210,410 people for one day on 17th and it is topped the box office. Total attendance at this movie has topped 5million. It is about a box office hit `Interstellar’

The director has studied the subjects related to this movie at the university for 4 years.

He said that he didn’t want to make an immature and groundless movie. Thus Christopher Nolan worked on this movie.

To make a higher quality movie, it is based on the theory of a possibility of time travel through wormhole of internationalphysicist, Kip Torne’s Physical cosmology.

‘The story of `Interstellar’ goes like this. As the earth became that mencan’t live on, peoplehad to find a new planet to survive. The main character Cooper went into space, leaving his beloved family behind, as a last hope of mankind. He ventured his life in another galaxy through wormhole

In the film, fine dust covers whole earth. Only corn farm survived despite fine dust covered on their labored crops. In fact, not only our country but also other countries struggle with fine dust these days. Is it only fine dust?
The temperature of the earth is getting higher and the ice on polar regions are melting slowly. The marine life is dying from some unknown cause, abnormalityof climate caused mutation of produce, and some people are suffered from the shortage of water. I thought this kind of story can be happened in the future science fiction film in my childhood

But this came into reality already. The message of `Interstellar’ is not just an interesting story. We should do something for stimulating the global environment. We have to change our mindset and we need to make a habit of thinking about the conservation of nature in daily life. In addition, we need to teach our children how to love the nature and make them carry out the idea.

It recalls me a commercial copy that“Nature is not ours but we borrowed it from our future generation.” Today I deeply feel that we need peace not only among people but also peace between people and nature..

The Urban Environment And Hearing Loss: How To Get Around Potential Dangers

The Urban Environment And Hearing Loss: How To Get Around Potential Dangers
While the suburbs did enjoy their boom, these days, plenty of people are staying in cities–and plenty of other people are starting to relocate. The fact is that being able to simply head outside of one’s apartment building to find a world of restaurants, grocery stores, and mom and pop establishments is a rare and enjoyable feat, and one that is becoming en vogue again in the United States. But part of the urban environment, and a strikingly high number of suburbs, is the fact that noise levels keep going up. And while people might assume that their hearing is not suffering just by virtue of being around more traffic, the truth is that all of those small noises can really add up, as far as hearing loss and mental health are concerned.

There’s definitely no reason to become overly neurotic about every single facet of life in a bustling city, but the fact is that it is important for residents who are in louder areas to pay attention to how they are faring after awhile without a vacation, and to also look at those various little aspects of daily life and figure out where there can be a cut in the amount of noise that is being processed. Ears are delicate, and that ringing sound after a loud night of being close to speakers at a concert isn’t just something that will go away; it’s a warning that some hearing damage has been done.

Unfortunately, hearing loss isn’t always something that’s easy to catch until it’s too far gone. And being somewhere that there is constant white noise makes it even tougher to detect. For those who are in cities and who spend a lot of time listening to music on earbud headphones, stopping immediately is necessary. The headphones don’t block out the street noise, they merely pump loud sounds directly into the most sensitive part of the ear. That’s a recipe for disaster, and one that can be easily avoided by deciding to not attempt to blast music while in a loud part of the city, or by investing in noise-canceling headphones.

Apartment living and hearing loss often go hand in hand, too, when there are noisy neighbors. Instead of trying to drown out sounds the next time that whoever lives downstairs decides it’s a great time to practice shredding on electric guitar or to crank up a stereo, put on some headphones or put in some earplugs. It’s going to do a world of good for hearing preservation, and it will make for less stress, too. No one ever wins volume wars, so it’s smarter to stop competing. Likewise, those who find themselves commuting a lot should stop keeping their stereos turned up all the way, even though it might seem like a pleasant way to enjoy favorite songs. It is important to keep volume levels in check in general, because if there is a constant bustle that’s already assaulting one’s eardrums, these extra stresses can really have a negative impact.

HearingAidsReviews.com is a great resource for those who might need a bit of assistance with their ears. With www.hearingaidsreviews.com/free_hearing_test.html, there’s no reason to not make that move to extra help today.
