Nashville Sounds fall in ninth inning to Fresno Grizzlies

 

Nashville Sounds

Nashville SoundsFresno, CA – Fresno designated hitter A.J. Reed hit a two-run, walk-off homer in the bottom of the ninth inning to give the Grizzlies a stunning come-from-behind win over the Nashville Sounds at Chukchansi Park Wednesday afternoon.

Reed’s game-winning blast came just moments after Nashville’s Chris Parmelee looked like he was the game’s hero. With the game even at 4-4 in the top of the ninth, Parmelee launched a two-out solo homer to give the Sounds a 5-4 lead.

Sounds reliever Simon Castro – who allowed a game-tying home run in the bottom of the eighth – went back to the mound for the ninth and issued a lead off walk to Preston Tucker. The free pass came back to haunt Castro as Reed launched a 2-1 pitch from the right-hander out to deep right field to give Fresno its first win of the four-game set.

Dodging the Roadkill: A Visit To The Military Memorial Museum

 

Dodging the Roadkill - A Biker's JourneyCrossville, TN – On a beautiful day in May, I joined several other bikers for a day trip to Crossville, Tennessee. We were going to visit the Military Memorial Museum.

And of course, ride the beautiful Cumberland Plateau.

In all of my years, I had never known that this museum existed, much less, that Tennessee was the home to four POW Camps during the war.

“Camp Crossville” along with Camp Forrest in Tullahoma, Camp Campbell in Clarksville, and Camp Tyson in Henry County is where German POW’s were sent. There isn’t much evidence of the other camps today, but in Crossville, what remains of the actual camp is now a 4-H camp. The Military Memorial Museum houses the memories of the war.

NASA explores using Nanotechnology for Aerospace Applications

 

NASA Headquarters

NASA - National Aeronautics and Space AdministrationWashington, D.C. – Mastering the intricacies of controlling matter at the nanoscale level is part of a revolutionary quest to apply nanotechnology to benefit industrial processes. A key element of that technology is the use of carbon nanotubes.

Carbon nanotubes are small hollow tubes with diameters of 0.7 to 50 nanometers and lengths generally in the tens of microns. While ultra-small, carbon nanotubes offer big-time attributes.

For instance, materials can be manufactured that exhibit superior strength but are still extremely lightweight. Think in terms of 200 times the strength and five times the elasticity of steel. For good measure, add in that they offer highly-efficient electrical and thermal conductivity.
