James H. Doolittle led in the first bombing mission over Tokyo have been released from a Japanese prisoner of war camp at Peiping, the Office of Strategic Services announced. The names of the four, who were rescued by a humanitarian team which parachuted on the Peiping airfield, were withheld pending notification of their families. Months after the historic raid, in April 1942, the Japanese radio, apparently in an attempt to intimidate other American flyers, announced that some of Doolittle’s men had been put to death. - Border belt markets of North Carolina and South Carolina sold 8,576,679 pounds of tobacco at an average price of $44.82 hundred-weight, the Federal-State Corp Reporting Service noted.

New STAD Stadium and Sports Light from Access Fixtures

WORCESTER, Mass., Jan. 2, 2020 /PRNewswire/ — Access Fixtures has announced  a new LED sports light – the versatile and powerful STAD. STAD is an LED sports lighter with a twist. While STAD is a superior choice for new sports lighting projects, STAD is designed to be a perfect one-for-one replacement of outdated metal halide and PSMH sports lighters. Each of its three wattages, 360, 430, and 500, produce up to 179 lumens per watt. STAD emits sufficient lumens to replace the light emitted by metal halide and pulse start metal halide sports luminaires. A choice of a bolt or bracket mount makes retrofitting easy and fast. With a choice of narrow, medium, or wide optics, the STAD is a formidable option to illuminate any sports field or stadium efficiently. “STAD is designed for new lighting projects as well as for direct one-to-one replacement of old 1000w and 1500w metal halide sports light fixtures,” says Access Fixtures CEO Steve Rothschild. “For one-to-one replacements, STAD has the correct lumen output, optics and mounts to work on existing sports poles and brackets, enabling facility managers to be able to upgrade the lighting for their sports fie...

Joint guidelines explore best practices in NB-UVB therapy for psoriasis

Based on the available literature, the American Academy of Dermatology and the National Psoriasis Foundation published joint guidelines on ultraviolet light-based therapies for the treatment of psoriasis. Here, Healio Dermatology summarizes the joint findings on the risks and benefits of narrowband ultraviolet light B (NB-UVB) treatment. NB-UVB refers to wavelengths from 311 nm to 313 nm and is typically used to treat generalized plaque psoriasis, according to co-chair of the guidelines Craig A. Elmets, MD, from the University of Alabama, and colleagues. The researchers recommended treatment two or three times a week and warned that a greater frequency results in minimal benefit and may expose a patient to a higher total dose of UVB radiation, leading to a greater risk for UV-induced erythema. Before treatment, a thin layer of emollient such as petrolatum should be applied to increase effectiveness and reduce erythema. Based on comparative studies, psoralen plus ultraviolet A (PUVA) resulted in faster clearance with less treatment than NB-UVA, according to the researchers; however, oral PUVA has a higher rate of adverse effects. “Although PUVA monotherapy was more effective than...

An automated weather-based irrigation system helps Florida’s Hibernia Nursery save water and labor.

An automated weather-based irrigation system helps Florida’s Hibernia Nursery save water and labor. Hibernia Nursery is a 70-acre wholesale container nursery located near the Central Florida town of Webster. Hibernia produces landscape plants in large containers (trade 7 and 15 gallon) with micro-irrigation and small containers (trade 1 and 3 gallon) with sprinkler irrigation. Hibernia is under the jurisdiction of the Southwest Florida Water Management District, one of five districts regulating water use in Florida. The district supports technologies that can help agricultural producers be efficient with their limited supply of water. In this article, we describe a cooperative effort between the district, the University of Florida IFAS (Institute of Flood and Agricultural Sciences) and Hibernia Nursery to test a new irrigation technology that had been 10-plus years in the making. Containers have a limited volume for water storage so that irrigation water is applied frequently, typically daily or several times each day. With little buffer between under-watering and over-watering, frequent irrigation places a priority on applying the correct amount of water that will resupply wate...

Most of Dean’s new Select Series guitars are priced between $699 and $999, occupying a more accessible niche between their USA custom shop guitars, which feature guitars in the over $3000 range, and their beginner line, which offers guitars priced as low as the $200 range. The beauty of the Thoroughbred Select reviewed here is how often it blurs the line between mid- and high-pricing in terms of performance. The Price Is Right Select Series guitars are made in Indonesia, and the quality is, in most respects, excellent. In fact, the only quality control issue I encountered was that the input jack nut loosened early in my testing, which could just as easily have been a function of rough handling from a shipping courier. The factory setup was perfect, and playability was as good as it gets. The guitar comes strung-up light, with D’Addario .009–.042s, and the C-shaped neck, with its 12″ radius fretboard and 22 jumbo frets, felt super comfortable. The satin finish on the back of the neck makes moving across the who...

We’ve all been there, when the temperature outside drops, your skin dries up overnight and you’re

We’ve all been there, when the temperature outside drops, your skin dries up overnight and you’re left wondering how to get rid of the the dry skin on your face. According to Skin 55 dermatologist Dr Anjali Mahto, a reduction in the production of natural oils in our skin during the colder months causes this increased dryness and flaking. “Cold weather and central heating result in less humidity in the environment and more evaporation of water, otherwise known as increased transepidermal water loss from the skin’s surface, leading to dryness,” Dr Mahto explained. The protective barrier on our skin that prevents water loss, and therefore keeps our complexion hydrated, battles against the elements and often loses out to the cold weather. So, what’s the best way to get rid of dry skin on your face? Experts Dr Mahto, Dr Howard Murad of Murad Skincare and Dr Mary Sommerlad, expert at skincare brand Cetraben, shared with us their top tips on how to soothe flaky skin and prevent it from drying out again. Here are the three steps you should take to get rid of dry skin on the face. “It’s important to note dryness is a lack of oil in the skin whereas dehydration is lack of moisture,”...
