Nashville Sounds lose in extra innings to Tacoma Rainiers, 5-3

 

Nashville Sounds

Nashville SoundsNashville, TN – The Nashville Sounds and Tacoma Rainiers exchanged punches late with Tacoma issuing the final blow to defeat the Sounds 5-3 Sunday night at First Tennessee Park.

With the Sounds on top 1-0 and the pitching staff seemingly cruising, the Rainiers pulled out a pair of runs in the top of the eighth inning. Ian Miller singled with one out in the frame off Jeremy Bleich and swiped second base.

Raul Alcantara then replaced Bleich to face John Andreoli whom he promptly walked. Two batters later Mejias-Brean served a hit into shallow centerfield. An onrushing BJ Boyd made a sliding attempt at a catch but the ball skipped past him allowing both Andreoli and Miller to score and Mejias-Brean to reach third base.

AAA says Worn Tires Put Drivers at Risk

 

AAA

AAAOrlando, FL – Afternoon downpours could spell disaster for millions of road trippers this summer, thanks to an unlikely suspect – tires.

New research from AAA reveals that driving on relatively worn tires at highway speeds in wet conditions can increase average stopping distances by a staggering 43 percent, or an additional 87 feet — more than the length of a semi-trailer truck — when compared to new tires.

Compared to new tires, tires worn to a tread depth of just 4/32” exhibit an average increased stopping distance of 87 feet for a passenger car and 86 feet for a light truck. (AAA)

Tennessee Department of Agriculture says “Weird” Veggies are favorites you just haven’t tried

 

Tennessee Department of Agriculture

Tennessee Department of AgricultureNashville, TN – A stranger is just a friend you haven’t yet met, the saying goes. The same is true for the unfamiliar vegetables that will be showing up at farmers markets and in community supported agriculture (CSA) boxes this summer.

As the national movement toward eating more fresh and local produce grows, so does the need for more variety. Other, less nutritive foods are tempting if you grow bored with a limited roster of vegetables and recipes.

Many vegetables that are unfamiliar at farmers markets are actually items we already enjoy at restaurants.

SpiritualityMurfreesboro, TN – It’s happening.

If you have been following my blogs (read this one to catch up) or my life in general, you know that my husband and I have been prayerfully considering moving to San Diego, California to join a church plant in the city.

In fact, before we began our dating relationship, I knew that marrying J.J. meant following him wherever the Lord might lead. And it was clear that San Diego was the direction. We have both participated in internships with the North American Mission Board in San Diego, CA.

Tennessee Department of Environment and Conservation

Tennessee Department of Environment and Conservation (TDEC)Nashville, TN – The Tennessee Department of Environment and Conservation (TDEC) has officially transitioned all of its 650 golf carts at the nine Tennessee State Park courses from gas to electric.

NASA’s Juno Spacecraft’s mission is extended

 

NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory

NASA - National Aeronautics and Space AdministrationPasadena, CA – NASA has approved an update to Juno’s science operations until July 2021. This provides for an additional 41 months in orbit around Jupiter and will enable Juno to achieve its primary science objectives. Juno is in 53-day orbits rather than 14-day orbits as initially planned because of a concern about valves on the spacecraft’s fuel system. This longer orbit means that it will take more time to collect the needed science data.

An independent panel of experts confirmed in April that Juno is on track to achieve its science objectives and is already returning spectacular results.The Juno spacecraft and all instruments are healthy and operating nominally.

During its continued mission, NASA's Juno spacecraft will maintain its 53-day polar orbit around Jupiter. At its closest, Juno passes within 3,000 miles (5,000 kilometers) of Jupiter's cloud tops once during each 53-day orbit. At the high end of each orbit, Juno is about 5 million miles (8-million kilometers) from the planet - which is just beyond the orbit of the Jovian moon Themisto. (NASA/JPL-Caltech)
