NewsLocal NewsWood burning stoves put thatched homes at riskBy Bernie English – February 24, 2018 2266 Printcenter_img Linkedin Limerick’s O’Connell Street Revitalisation Works to go ahead Twitter RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR Thatched cottage The owners of traditional thatched cottages who install wood-burning stoves are running a serious risk of having a house fire.That was the message from the Conservation Officer of Limerick City and County Council this week, when he told a meeting of elected members of the council that a number of the county’s thatched cottages had been lost to fire.Conservation Officer, Tom Cassidy was addressing a request to members of the KIlmallock and Cappamore district of the council to remove a listed thatch cottage from the record of protected structures.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up He told the meeting that ten buildings have been lost lost to fires from the protected structures record in Limerick in the last five years.“In many cases, the fires can be attributed to wood-burning stoves being installed. The problem is that in Ireland, we’re not very good at seasoning our wood for two years,” Mr Cassidy told the meeting.“Wood that hasn’t been properly seasoned still contains sap and this adheres to the inside of the flues and catches fire. A wind lifts the material and the thatch goes up.“This happens around two years after a wood burning stove has been installed,” he explained.Mr Cassidy said that the high heat generated by burning wood in a stove can contribute to the hazard.“People should be aware that installing a wood-burning stove in a protected structure requires planning permission. There’s a reason we require people to do these things. Installing a wood burning stove can be the death-knell of a thatched house,” he told the meeting.Asked whether it was possible to control such modifications, Mr Cassidy said his department “does not have enough staff to go around knocking on doors and asking people if they have installed a wood stove”.He told members of the area committee that there are currently more than 200 thatched cottages in county Limerick.More local news here.

Radhika Nagpal, expert on swarm robotics, celebrated among ‘Nature’s 10’

first_img Read Full Story Radhika Nagpal, the Harvard computer scientist whose self-organizing swarm robotics are today’s state of the art in collective artificial intelligence, has been named among Nature’s 10, the ten scientists and engineers who “made a difference” in 2014.Nagpal is the Fred Kavli Professor of Computer Science at the Harvard School of Engineering and Applied Sciences (SEAS) and a core faculty member at the Wyss Institute for Biologically Inspired Engineering at Harvard University.In February of this year, her research group announced the creation of a robotic construction crew, inspired by termites, which is capable of assembling blocks into 3-D structures without any human intervention. And in August, Nagpal’s group unveiled its thousand-robot swarm, a massive assembly of small robots that collectively arrange themselves into shapes, interacting much like a school of fish or a flock of birds. Dubbed “the first thousand-robot flash mob,” these Kilobots demonstrate the power of computationally simple programs to collaboratively and autonomously execute complex behaviors.“The beauty of biological systems is that they are elegantly simple — and yet, in large numbers, accomplish the seemingly impossible,” Nagpal said. “At some level you no longer even see the individuals; you just see the collective as an entity to itself.”Nagpal’s research sheds light on the nature of coordination in large groups in order to better understand natural systems like social insect colonies and multicellular self-organization, and to engineer robust and powerful technologies like multi-robot systems for use in search and rescue, construction, or agriculture.last_img read more

The DMV will accept registration renewals, plate surrenders, vehicle registrations for new purchases and plate transfers.All automobile dealer work can now be left at any one of the DMV offices. The DMV, however, can’t renew driver’s licenses at this time as a personal visit is required. New York State extended the expiration date on driver’s licenses until further notice.New York State DMV is currently closed and has been closed for several weeks. Any renewals done online will not be processed by them at this time. Make sure that all DMV work is mailed to a Chautauqua County DMV office or left in one of their drop boxes. You may call any of the DMV offices with questions. The DMV, however, has limited staff and many calls, so this may be difficult at thistime. Whether by mail or drop box, please enclose a stamped self-addressed envelope large enough to hold what you are requesting, and containing enough postage for your request as the DMV will mail your items to you, and include your phone number as the DMV will need to contact you for payment. Any forms that you need can be found on the NYS DMV website atwww.dmv.ny.gov.last_img read more
