The first wheel, it has been said, probably squeaked, and that was the beginning of noise pollution. Unwanted sound can be a pollutant. Like other pollutants, it makes the world we live in not only unpleasant, but also unhealthy. We don't know what the per capita noise production is. But we do know it's going up.
A widely quoted "intelligent guess" says that in United States cities, noise has increased about one decibel db each year for the past 25 years. A decibel is the unit used to measure loudness. The lowest sound that the best human ear can hear is one db. Leaves rustling in the wind measure about 10 db. Dishwashers, air conditioners, drills, blaring car horns, and screaming sirens fill our homes and streets with noise. There is no escape. Even the once-silent wilderness now echoes Free rent for right lady 49 Grand Island Nebraska 49 the noise of mini-bikes and snowmobiles.
The controversial plane will fly faster than sound, and so will drag behind it that trail of ear-splitting, glass-shattering noise we call the sonic boom. Most of us know that a sudden, very loud noise can cause temporary or permanent deafness. But until recently, few people realized that repeated exposure to noise at lower levels has the same effect. Studies show that spending 8 hours daily at an db rate le to hearing damage. It has been shown that citizens of noisy, industrial nations have far poorer hearing than those living in less-advanced and quieter countries.
Tests show that many American teens have a great deal of hearing loss. In some cases their hearing is no better than that of a year-old. One of the causes may be amplified rock music, which has been metered at a thundering db. Noise doesn't affect just ears.
A sudden loud noise makes the heart beat faster, increases blood pressure, and causes the pupils in the eyes to dilate. It can lead to heart attacks in persons who already have heart ailments. In short, there is no doubt that noise can cause deafness, and there is some concern that it may lead to other physical damage. It is also costly when it reduces worker efficiency, or in the case of sonic booms, cracks windows and walls. It is possible, though sometimes expensive, to reduce noise.
Someone already has invented a quiet jackhammer. Getting co-operation is another matter. Laws can help, but so far there are very few laws about noise. And where there are laws, they are often ignored. New York City has laws against sounding auto horns and rules limiting city noise to 88 db. But these are rarely enforced, as any noise-frazzled New Yorker knows.
It seems that people will have to make noise about noise if we are to lower the decibel rate. But many still think of noise as they used to think of air pollution as a part of progress. If the decibel level keeps going up at today's rate, we are told, we'll all be deaf by the year That's something of a scare statement. But there is a need to educate people, and to let them know that noise may be dangerous. That's what this is all about. In fact, I have just finished copying it into my notebook of poems I want to keep.
She told of Indians around her Sidney home peering through windows and wanting something to eat. I think it is part of their heritage. Ruth L. Buettner, Grand Island. The old ones made by William H. Jackson and the new ones by Lou Ell are fantastic. I like the comparison and illustration of the change of nature.
The picture was taken from the Iowa side of the Missouri River facing southeast. Hamann, Jr. The photo was printed in reverse for technical and visual reasons. There are no excuses for the inaccurate caption save the slip of the typewriter, however. Most all of your stories and pictures had a way of ending up in western Nebraska, not that I didn't enjoy them — but why not eastern Nebraska? I prefer to look at living animals and fish and birds that live in Nebraska. I very much dislike viewing the trophies of hunters and fishermen.
Johnson, Seattle, Washington. There are plenty of us with our normal quantity of horse sense who are well aware that there is a minority in our country that would like to see our nation disarmed for a very easily seen reason. Of course, it is possible that some of these complainers are not conspirators, only uninformed do-gooders. Johnson of East Lansing, Michigan, whose letter appeared in the May Speak Up, mentioned 20, deaths andinjuries. He did not, however, mention how many of these deaths were of innocents and which were those of criminals or would-be criminals. He also ignored the fact that those who are criminally inclined use guns since they are available, but, lacking guns, would commit their deeds with other weapons.
The myriad outdoor activities during this particular June Sunday in typified those of any warm, summer day at the lake four miles west of South Sioux City. About 3 o'clock that afternoon, boat traffic was heavy on the acre lake, and Wally Beerman of Dakota City pointed his rugged, inboard craft toward Lik-U-Wanta Beach.
A celebrity of the water set, Wally is extremely aware of water safety. Whenever boat traffic is heavy, he beaches his craft in favor of shoreline activities until things quiet down. One of a rare and courageous breed, Wally is a daredevil. His specialty is soaring through the air, swinging from a flying kite. The scary looking rig, which takes him as high as feet above the water, is 16 feet long and 12 feet wide, and made of paper-thin material. Thousands have witnessed his extraordinary aerial feats.
This time, Wally was just boating and plunged into a vigorous volleyball game minutes after beaching his craft. Several water skiers were skimming across the lake when suddenly, out of the corner of his eye, Wally saw one of them hit the surf. There was, of course, nothing unusual about a skier taking a fall, but this one slammed the surface hard.
Wally focused full attention on the mishap and, as the wake died, noticed the victim motionless in the water —floating face downward. He raced to the water's edge for a closer look.
By this time, the tow boat was bobbing about 80 yards from where the skier had fallen. The driver yelled to his friend, but, getting no response, dove into the chilly water and began swimming to the rescue. Wally realized the fellow had panicked and would never make it to the downed skier in time.
He hollered to Bill Haafke of South Sioux City, who had also been playing volleyball, and the two swung into action. Together, they pushed Wally's boat off the sand. A whir of the power-packed inboard sent the vessel lurching toward the immobilized skier.
Meanwhile, Wally's wife found a telephone and called for a rescue unit. Wally worked feverishly to revive Rena as she lay limp and unconscious in the boat. An old-timer with the uncertain, Wally refused to abandon hope where another person might have called it quits.
Before long, his dogged determination paid off. Rena began responding to his expert efforts, and recovery was incredibly rapid. The danger was past. Rena was safe! In her own reconstruction of the mishap, the girl remembers losing balance and striking her head on a ski as she went down. The blow knocked her unconscious and out of breath. By the time the rescue squad arrived, Rena was ready to ski again, but after a thorough examination, she was advised to rest the remainder of the day.
It was business as usual at Crystal Lake. The threat of tragedy was gone. A young woman's life was saved. And, the credit was given where due — to the fast and effective action of a brave man, a daredevil at heart, and, in this case, a quick-thinking hero. But say you are going to be out all day, trekking the Sand Hills or exploring the Pine Ridge. Rain gear, a lunch, and extra film, if you're a photographer, are necessities; not enough to bother with a knapsack but too much bulk for pockets. How do you carry these few, but essential items? Many people have found the belt or "fanny" pack an ideal solution.
Originated for skiers, this Free rent for right lady 49 Grand Island Nebraska 49 but versatile pack will quickly become a necessity for any outing. It carries the load —usually more bulk than weight — out of the way at the small of the back, does not hamper sitting or climbing, and its contents can be reached without removing the pack. Materials include a yard of army duck or similar durable, water-resistant material nylon is also excellenta piece of soft cloth for lining if desired, a heavy, inch zipper, belt webbing and buckle, and a spool of medium-weight thread.
Begin by drawing and cutting the pattern, then pin it to the fabric and cut out the pieces. If your waist is smaller than 24 inches, take out the difference from the pack itself, deducting equal amounts from the top, bottom, side, back, zipper, and optional lining. Cut an opening in the side, fold back the edges, and stitch in the zipper a No. Reinforce the seam by restitching along the zipper's outer edges.
Stitch the diagonals of the side and back together first, then the straight edges of the bottom and top pieces to the straight edges of the back. If you wish to install a lining, it should be attached at this point. The material used is ounce, single-filled duck, washed in hot water to make it soft and flexible. Place the lining with the right side against the wrong side of the top and stitch it into the straight seam of the top, leaving five-eighths of an inch free at each end.
Stretch the lining across the back, top, and side and stitch it into the straight seams between the bottom and back, again leaving five-eighths of an inch free at each end. Do this on both ends. The pack is now turned right-side-out. Slip the belt out through the ends. Fold back a quarter of an inch at each end where the side and back and stitch the folded ends to the belt. The final step is to install the buckle by lapping the webbing over the buckle post and sewing them together.Free rent for right lady 49 Grand Island Nebraska 49
