Why are manhole covers round? A manhole cover is round because it won’t fall through the opening on which it sits, it can simply be rolled to reach a destination much faster, while applying relatively little effort. Courtesywww.scienceabc.com Traffic control will be set up daily in several locations along the project route and residents are urged to use caution when driving through and walking near these work zones. The work is scheduled to begin at 8 am and end by 5 p.m. each day. The concrete being used is a high strength mix and will require a cure time, residents are urged to avoid driving over these manholes for the first few days after they are poured. This work will begin on Aspen Drive at Range Road and continue along Aspen Drive, Sumac Lane and Maple Drive before finishing back at Aspen Drive. Beginning Monday, July 1, crews will be adjusting manholes in the Ponderosa Estates area. Since there a dozens of manhole adjustments in this sub-division, construction is scheduled to go through July 31.

FacebookTwitterEmailPrintFriendly分享Alaska’s junior senator says the country has more than enough rules already in place and has introduced legislation to stop the number of new laws being passed. Senator Dan Sullivan yesterday debuted the RED Tape Act, which would require federal agencies to remove a regulation from the Federal Register every time they introduce a new regulation. Sullivan also proposed a penalty for those who don’t comply: freezing the cost of living adjustments for agency personnel until the agency abides by the law. Sen. Sullivan(R-AK): “Is America in decline? Are our best days behind us? Is China going to own the 21st century the way we did the last century?” Sullivan said the simple “one in, one out” method would help curb the growth of the regulatory and financial burdens on American people and American businesses.
Sam Baldock’s second-half brace proved enough in a game short of chances but high on controversy, with Peterborough’s Mark Little and Tyrone Barnett both fortunate to escape red cards.Cole Skuse and Greg Cunningham were stretchered off either side of the interval before Lee Tomlin’s penalty in the second of eight added minutes ensured a dramatic finale.Derek McInnes made three changes to his starting line-up defeated so cruelly in the dying seconds by Blackburn Rovers at Ashton Gate three days ago.Marvin Elliott returned after a seven-month absence from starting duties to partner Stephen Pearson in the engine room, while Cole Skuse shifted to the right flank at the expense of Albert Adomah.Also coming in were James Wilson and Baldock at opposite ends of the pitch, replacing Louis Carey and Jon Stead in central defence and up front respectively.Having opened the scoring in the first minute against Blackburn, City were almost on the receiving end of the same fate as Tomlin’s dipping half-volley had Tom Heaton retreating and relieved to see the ball ripple the top of the net on its way over.City more than held their own in a first half starved of clear cut chances. Baldock beat the offside trap but failed to gather Skuse’s defence-splitting pass on the stretch, before the lively striker found space on the right wing.Running to the byline, Baldock fired in a wicked low cross across the six-yard line inviting a tap in. Stephen Pearson was the man arriving, but having sprinted to get there, the former Derby County midfielder could only throw himself at the ball and steer it wide from just in front of Posh keeper Bobby Olejnik.Half-time saw Skuse stretchered down the tunnel with an ankle injury, as McInnes responded by introducing Adomah to open up the game.But the winger would have to wait a while longer to be involved, with the start of the second half delayed by ten minutes due to illness to one of the officials.Again Tomlin was fastest out of the blocks, this time fizzing a low shot past the post seconds after the restart, but Baldock soon provided a reminder of City’s attacking threat by forcing a save from Olejnik at his near post.And it was the same man who broke the deadlock on 56 minutes thanks in part to a calamitous moment from Peterborough right-back Mark Little, who attempted a back pass from just inside his own half without noticing City’s number seven lurking.Baldock could not believe his luck, controlling the ball on the edge of the penalty area, rounding Olejnik and finishing left-footed into the unguarded net.Little was visibly distraught, and Liam Fontaine soon became victim to his frustration as the man on the receiving end of a rash lunge near City’s left touchline – the Posh defender fortunate to escape with no more than the yellow card branded in his direction.The home side were falling apart, and Baldock virtually finished them off with his second just after the hour, taking Adomah’s square pass in his stride with a crisp shot into the bottom corner to double the advantage.If Peterborough were previously frustrated, by now they were apoplectic. With refereeing decisions not to the home fans’ liking, Tyrone Barnett took matters into his own hands with another ugly tackle again resulting in a yellow card.It looked bad on first viewing, and with Greg Cunningham grounded for five minutes after the challenge before being stretchered off, McInnes must have been wondering how his side were still facing 11 men.The remaining minutes passed by relatively incident free until Tomlin’s spot-kick after he was fouled by Martyn Woolford gave United faint hope in the second of eight added minutes, but City held on to secure a welcome first three points on the road.
MELBOURNE, (Reuters) – Australia fast bowler Josh Hazlewood has been ruled out of the test series against Sri Lanka due to a back injury, Cricket Australia (CA) said yesterday. Jhye Richardson, uncapped at test level, has been called into the squad in place of Hazlewood, who has taken 164 wickets in 44 tests.“Josh has reported some back soreness over the last few days and scans have revealed a very early stage stress fracture in the same lower back area as his previous injury from last summer,” CA physiotherapist David Beakley said in a statement.“He will now begin a rehabilitation program and we are confident he will be available for selection ahead of the ICC Cricket World Cup in the UK later this year.” Richardson, 22, has played seven one-day and seven Twenty20 internationals.“Jhye has had an impressive first half in his Sheffield Shield season and no-one could deny he has now continued that form in ODI matches for Australia,” national selector Trevor Hohns said.Australia’s test squad is due to meet up in Brisbane on Saturday evening, ahead of the first day-night test against Sri Lanka at the Gabba starting on Thursday.
In commemoration of Guyana’s 50th Independence anniversary as a nation, the Academic Working Group (AWG) of the National Commemoration Commission (NCC) on Wednesday launched the literary festival activities, which includes a national symposium series and a digital tent.Director of Culture and chairperson of the AWG, Dr James Rose explained that the digital tent, which will take the form of a website, would be capturing Guyana’s history and culture over the past half century.Dr James noted that several activities would be held in keeping with the festival, including 50 days and 50 night of literature.“There will be 50 sessions of interfacing with 50 communities, we have completed 23 sessions thus far and have 27 more by this end of the month,” Dr Rose explained, adding that, “a series of playwright workshop will be held in Essequibo, Berbice and Demerara in line of the literary festival”.Dr Vibert Cambridge, Professor Emeritius, of Media Arts & Studies Scripps College of Communication, spoke of the significant amount of work that was put into the website by way of cooperation between the students of the University of Guyana and their counterparts from the Ohio University.Archivist Nadia Carter expressed excitement over the website which she said would allow Guyanese and others at home and abroad to access information on Guyana’s history.Carter noted the website was still in its demo format as additions are being made, but would soon be available.The website is said to have a similar format of ancestry.com and will be rich in Guyanese history and music.Interviews with various public figures over the past five decades are also expected to be uploaded.
That forced Guardiola to recall Aguero for an FA Cup fifth round draw at second tier Huddersfield on Sunday.But it was an uninspired performance by Aguero in the goalless draw and the rapport between forward and manager looked strained.With just two goals to his name since the end of November, recent events have fuelled the speculation that Aguero, 28, could end his six-year stay with City once the current campaign is over.But, as Guardiola prepared for the first game of a two-legged tie with Monaco in the Champions League last 16 on Tuesday, the City boss insisted he is handling Aguero no differently to at any time in the past.“Sergio has enough experience. He knows, everyone knows,” Guardiola told reporters on Monday.“We are going to talk with him like with all of his team-mates. In this level it is so demanding in the Champions League.“It is one of the most beautiful competitions to play, maybe not the most important, but the most beautiful and we have to do our best.“All of Europe will watch us, to analyse us, to kill us if we don’t win or say how good we are if we do win. That is the huge experience. It is beautiful to me.”And Guardiola has faith in Aguero to rediscover his goalscoring touch.“The guys who score goals, it is talent, instinct. How they have to move, create spaces. He does not need to be controlled like a TV remote control. He is going to do it himself.”– Slump –Guardiola confirmed City captain Vincent Kompany’s injury problems continue after he missed the Huddersfield game — he will sit out the first leg against Monaco.The City manager, however, hopes Kompany’s leg injury will have recovered in time for the FA Cup replay against Huddersfield next week.Meanwhile, forward Kevin De Bruyne insists he is happy with his form despite a dramatic drop off in his goalscoring output this season.Manchester City’s Spanish manager Pep Guardiola addresses the media during a press conference at the City Football Academy in Manchester, northern England, on February 20, 2017 © AFP / Paul ELLISHaving scored 16 times last season, De Bruyne has netted just five this term, and hit the net twice in the last 18 games dating back to the start of November.“No, not at all. I never look at my stats,” said De Bruyne when asked if he was worried by his slump.“I know it is very important for other people. Because I play deeper and not everyone sees that, I am comparing that.“I can see very good how well I am playing for the team, even without me scoring. If we can win a title I will be very happy.“I am playing very consistently. I played a little more defensively than at the start of the season but we changed a lot of positions for me personally.“I know people are looking at a lot of statistics, for me I am playing better than last year but maybe statistically a bit worse.”0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares0000Sergio Aguero warms up ahead of Manchester City’s FA Cup game against Huddersfield Town at the John Smith stadium on February 18, 2017 © AFP / OLI SCARFFMANCHESTER, United Kingdom, Feb 20 – Pep Guardiola insists his relationship with Sergio Aguero remains strong despite mounting speculation over the Manchester City striker’s future since the arrival of Gabriel Jesus.Teenage sensation Jesus took Aguero’s place in Guardiola’s starting line-up before breaking a bone in his foot, an injury that may rule the Brazilian out for the remainder of the season.
