Space Weather News for April 3, 2010
http://spaceweather.com


SPACE SHUTTLE SKY SHOW: On Monday morning, April 5th, thousands of people gathered in Florida to witness the launch of space shuttle Discovery may get more than they bargained for. Just fifteen minutes before the shuttle takes off, the International Space Station (ISS) will fly over the launch site.  The station's path across the dawn sky takes it right past the gibbous Moon--a beautiful close encounter!  Photographers should be prepared for the ISS at 6:06 am EDT followed by Discovery's launch at 6:21 am EDT. Sky watchers with iPhones can prepare themselves by downloading our Simple Satellite Tracker (http://simpleflybys.com); it will guide you to the ISS and count down to the flyby so you can't miss it.

SUNSET PLANETS:  This is for everyone. Venus and Mercury are having a close encounter on April 3rd and 4th.  Look west at sunset to see the two bright planets beaming through the twilight only 3 degrees apart.  Sky maps, pictures and more information may be found at http://spaceweather.com

UMass Lowell baseball (13-11, 2-6 NE-10) opens the gates of LeLacheur Park on Saturday afternoon for a double-header with Saint Rose (7-17, 2-6 NE-10) starting at 12 p.m. The River Hawks will look to reverse their two-game losing skid in front of their home fans.

Last time out, UMass Lowell came up short, 4-3, at Southern New Hampshire despite rallying for two runs in the final two innings. Freshman David Smith (Amesbury, MA) connected on two hits and two RBI, while Matt Jacobs (Hudson, MA) drove in the only other run.

Senior Dan White (Southboro, MA) battled through five hard innings, surrendering four runs and striking out five. He was relieved by Dallas Nunes (Easton, MA) who was stellar over the final three innings, allowing only one hit.

For the season, senior JT Leary (Newburyport, MA) continues to lead the pack with a .360 batting average, .418 on base percentage and 21 RBI. Luke Wallace (Yorktown Heights, NY) is hot on his tail with a .340 average, 13 RBI and a team-best five home runs.

Leading by example on the mound, junior Dustin Ramey (Kingston, NH) has been terrific through five starts. Ramey (3-2) maintains a 2.02 ERA with a team-high 32 strikeouts over 35.2 innings pitched. Likewise, Matt Monico (Tewksbury, MA) has given the bullpen a boost with a 2.18 ERA in seven appearances and a 1-1 record.

The River Hawks have a short turnaround before they return to action. UMass Lowell hosts Merrimack in a double-header on Monday starting at 3 p.m.

Help With Eradicating Invasive Species

The Southborough Open Land Foundation (SOLF) is working with the New England Wildflower Society to address invasive species on Southborough Conservation land and promote native plant conservation.

Many Southborough Residents are familiar with the invasive vine Oriental Bittersweet that engulfed the old apple orchard at the Breakneck Hill Conservation Land. The town has worked for years to eradicate the bittersweet and restore native plant populations to the conservation land. SOLF is also working to remove invasive species on the lands they own. Oriental Bittersweet is just one of many invasive species that threaten our native plants and wildlife habitat. Unfortunately there are new invasives headed our way that may pose even greater threats to our native ecosystems.

The goal of the New England Wildflower Society’s (NEWFS) project is to locate, document and eradicate new invasive species before they get established in the region. The code name for the project is “Early Detection Rapid Response” (EDRR).  To kick off the project NEWFS is holding 4 workshops to train volunteers from all 36 towns in the Sudbury Assabet and Concord Rivers Watershed (SuAsCo).

SOLF is hosting one of the NEWFS workshops on May 15th at the Southborough Fire Station. The training sessions run from 10:00 a.m.-3:00 p.m., and includes a PowerPoint presentation on the early detection species with a discussion of their identification, habitats, impacts, and control.  The rest of the morning includes a discussion of survey and documentation methods, use of GPS, and how/where to report findings.  The afternoon training is primarily in the field, doing practice surveys and documentation.

Participants will come from throughout the 36 SuAsCo Watershed towns, but SOLF is hoping for a strong attendance of Southborough residents who will then help us document and control the invasives here in town.

There was a related story in today’s Metrowest Daily News http://www.metrowestdailynews.com/news/x905412009/Volunteers-on-the-lookout-for-invasive-plants

SOLF’s Participation in the project is funded from a generous grant from The Foundation for MetroWest. Southborough residents that would like to attend or want more information are encouraged to contact SOLF’s Stewardship Coordinator Freddie Gillespie at Stewardship@solf.org

Reduce and Prevent the Risk of Falling
Older woman with daughterWe are all moving around more with the warm spring weather. Anyone can fall, but the risk is higher in older people. The risk of falling can change with aging, medical conditions and the environment. Why take chances? To prevent falls: identify and correct unsafe conditions, such as lighting, clutter and, loose electrical cords. Also, proper foot care, eye care, and physical activity can help reduce the risk. Ask your doctor or primary health care provider for advice. Canes and walkers can lend stability and reduce the risk of falling. Together, these measures can mean a safer spring.

Meet Volunteer Brian Casey
Brian CaseyBrian K. Casey, 35
Profession: Business Systems Analyst
Hometown: I was raised in Everett, I reside in Melrose presently
My mother was diagnosed with Alzheimer's disease in 1993 (I was 18). I have run 2 Boston Marathons with the Association's Run for the Memory (RFTM) team and been a member of 2 Reach the Beach relay teams. I joined the RFTM leadership team in spring 2009, and over this past winter I was able to work with the race director of Max Performance Triathlons and the Association's Michelle Gonzalez in expanding the RFTM program into triathlons for 2010. Just recently I began working with a small team to organize a group focused on reaching out to people in their 20s and 30s and getting them involved with the Alzheimer's Association.
What do you most want people to know about Alzheimer's disease?
This is not an 'old persons' disease. While the disease may affect the older individual - the devastation affects the entire family.  As a disease without a cure and one that can strike any of us, it's in our own best interest as well as those of our loved ones to push for better treatments and a cure. For people who have dealt with the disease, I want them to know what an eye-opening experience it is to be out in the public as a volunteer or fundraiser for the Alzheimer's Association. When dealing with my mother's illness, it was never something we talked about much with people outside of the family, and I understand that many families deal with the disease the same way. For me, one of the most amazing things about getting out behind an Association banner and asking for people's support was the number of individuals who would share their own experience with the disease. They seem grateful to see someone working for the cause and are always very generous in their support.
Why did you decide to get involved with the Alzheimer's Association?I needed to do something to help find better treatments, and to help other families deal with the disease. It's an awful thing to watch the effects this disease has on a person and the family - and to know that there is no option for a treatment is disheartening. I hope that in my lifetime I can see this changed.

Keep Kids Fire Safe Foundation Dedicated to Helping Keep Children Fire Safe

 

Keep Kids Fire Safe Foundation, based in Clarksville, Arkansas, was recently designated as a tax exempt, 501 (c)(3) not-for-profit corporation organized specifically for charitable and educational purposes.

 

Founded by Fire Safety Educator Dayna Hilton, a firefighter, the foundation’s mission is to help keep children and their caregiver's fire safe nationwide. The Keep Kids Fire Safe Foundation develops and distributes educationally sound innovative fire safety related materials at little or no cost to children and their caregivers, fire departments, schools and other organizations.

 

According to the United States Fire Administration’s Children and Fire in the United States Report (1994-1997), the very young (those under age five) have a much greater risk from fire than others. The group accounts for 11% of fire-related deaths~ the highest population for any age group. 

 

Hilton, a nationally recognized fire safety expert, along with her fire safety dogs, have made it their mission to save lives, reduce injuries and decrease property loss from fire for almost a decade, concentrating their fire safety efforts on children in pre- and elementary schools and their caregivers.

 

Keep Kids Fire Safe Foundation's mascot, Sparkles the Fire Safety Dog, rescued from a home with 62 other dogs and adopted by Hilton in 2003, has received critical acclaim along with Hilton, for their innovative fire safety programming methods. Together, the two have reached millions of children and their caregivers their efforts have resulted in helping save the lives of two children and members of their families.

 

The Keep Kids Fire Safe Foundation goals include the following:

 

  • To be the premier fire safety education association for children and their caregivers

  • Identify characteristics of excellence in fire safety education

  • Provide a forum to promote fire safety for children and their caregivers in America and throughout the world

  • Promote continuous improvement in fire safety education through utilizing the latest fire safety research, thereby benefiting children, their families and the public

  • Establish a continuing relationship with individuals and groups interested in promoting excellence in fire safety, including schools, business and industry, government agencies and professional associations

  • Promote innovation and creativity in teaching and learning fire safety, including the sharing of best practices and assisting in the professional development of fire safety educators

  • Be a resource and provide beneficial services for schools, fire departments, and fire safety educators concerning issues in fire safety education

  • To assist fire departments in benchmarking through the sharing of best practices and providing research and information

  • To support worthy projects and research in fire safety education

  • To present appropriate awards to and confer recognition upon outstanding supporters of fire safety education

Due to Passover the Southborough Advisory Committee's meeting scheduled for tonight HAS BEEN CANCELLED.

Gov. Deval Patrick has declared a state of emergency as of 15:05 today, March 29, 2010 and mobilized the National Guard as the state braces for potential flooding from the latest storm.

The governor says all of the state's rivers are likely to reach flood stage in the next couple of days, and because the ground is
saturated from prior rain storms, it is difficult for the water to be absorbed.

Patrick told a Monday afternoon briefing at the state's emergency management headquarters that 700 National Guard troops
will be deployed by daybreak Tuesday to help in several capacities, including sandbagging and, if necessary, evacuations.

Patrick says no mandatory evacuations had been ordered as of yet, but residents of flood zones should be prepared to leave their homes quickly if flood waters rise.

Forecast for More Rain


The forecast for the next few days calls for 3-6 inches of rain throughout the Commonwealth, with localized higher amounts possible.  With many rivers still in minor flood stages from the previous two rain storms, and the ground so thoroughly saturated, it is certain that street flooding and minor to moderate flooding of rivers and streams will occur.  Today, the Governor reminded the public about precautions it should take, and updated people on the state’s efforts to prepare and assist local communities with response needs. 

Message to Citizens

  • People need to monitor the forecast.  In many areas, it will make a big difference whether we get 2" to 3" of rain, in which case there may be widespread minor flooding like we saw during the second rain storm last week (March 25).  But, if we get as much as 5" or 6" in some places, there may be widespread moderate and even major flooding, similar to the first rain storm (March 12-15).  

  • People who had water in their homes in the last few weeks should plan for more water in their homes.  Now is the time to check sump pumps, to move things that may be damaged or destroyed by rising water, to place sandbags if necessary.  And, people should have a plan if they experience power outages and their sump pumps won't work.

  • People who had to evacuate their homes in the past two weeks should have plans to evacuate again.  This means having a plan to leave before the waters rise to a dangerous level, and knowing what they will take and where they will go.

  • Finally, people who live or work in areas where roads were impassable over the past few weeks because of high water should plan for that to happen again. 

  • Do not get caught unprepared.  People who need supplies should get them now, before the storm hits.  If you don't have an emergency kit at home, please purchase flashlights, batteries, food, water, medicines, and other basic supplies.

  • Please remember to use extreme caution around rising rivers and in flooded areas.  Currents can be deceptively fast and dangerous and this is not a time to be canoeing or kayaking in our rivers.  The waters are dangerous.  People should pay particular attention to children - fascination may draw them towards dangerous waters.

  • Pay close attention to downed power lines, particularly around water.

  • As with any rainstorm when rain is falling fast in great quantity, drivers are encouraged to drive carefully and drive safe.  Be aware that the commute may take a little longer than usual.

  • Additional flood safety tips can be found on our  website at http:www.mass.gov/mema 

  • Please call 211 with questions or non-emergency concerns.  For emergencies, please dial 911.

St. Mark's Takes A Closer Look

March 28, 2010 - Story Musgrave was the keynote speaker for America 2010- St. Mark's Takes A Closer Look. The students started the day together in the class of 1945 Hall hearing from astronaut Story Musgrave. Musgrave was as student at St. Mark’s but never graduated, instead he joined the U.S. Marines and was stationed in Korea, where he was an aircraft electrician and an engine mechanic. He started flying with the Marines and over the next 55 years accumulated 18,000 hours in over 160 aircraft. He is a parachutist with over 800 freefalls. Musgrave may be best known for his work as a NASA astronaut. He worked for NASA for over 30 years and flew on six spaceflights. He performed the first shuttle spacewalk on Challenger's first flight, was a pilot on an astronomy mission, conducted two classified DOD missions, was the lead spacewalker on the Hubble Telescope repair mission and on his last flight, operated an electronic chip manufacturing satellite on Columbia.

After listening to Mr. Musgrave, students broke into smaller groups to listen to various speakers including Southborough resident Ari Haseotes, President of Cumberland Farms.  The day completed with  C. Boyden Gray ’60. Gray is a lawyer who has worked as White House Counsel to President George H. W. Bush, was Ambassador to the EU from 2006-2008, and most recently has served as the Special Envoy for European Affairs and Special Envoy for Eurasian Energy at the Mission of the United States to the European Union.

Flood Watch In effect from Monday afternoon through Tuesday Afternoon,
The NWS in taunton has issued a
Flood watch for portions of northern Connecticut, Massachusetts and Rhode Island, Including The Following areas, In Northern Connecticut, Hartford Ct, Tolland Ct And windham ct. In Massachusetts, Eastern Franklin Ma, Eastern hampden ma, Eastern Hampshire Ma, Northern Middlesex Ma, northern worcester ma, Southern Worcester Ma, Western franklin ma, Western Hampden Ma and western hampshire ma. In Rhode Island, Eastern Kent Ri, Northwest Providence Ri, southeast providence ri, Washington Ri And western kent ri.
From Monday afternoon through Tuesday afternoon
A slow moving low pressure system will bring the potential for 2.50 to 5 inches of rain Monday through Tuesday afternoon. There is still some uncertainty where the heaviest rainfall axis will set up. Our initial concern will be for western Massachusetts and northern Connecticut. This area will slowly transition eastward and onto the coastal plain Monday night and Tuesday. Flood watches will probably be expanded northeastward and extended into the middle of the week in later forecasts.
This heavy rainfall may result in significant small stream flooding later Monday, And Especially Monday night into Tuesday. In addition, There Also Is the potential for significant urban and poor drainage street flooding over this time.
Many of the larger rivers may take until late Monday night or Tuesday to go into flood. However, The Potential Exists for substantial river flooding by the middle of next week. Individuals that have experienced significant flooding over the last month should be taking steps now to prepare for another potentially significant flood event.
Precautionary/preparedness actions,
A flood watch means there is a potential for flooding based on current forecasts.
You should monitor later forecasts and be alert for possible flood warnings. Those living in areas prone to flooding should be prepared to take action should flooding develop.
