crazy woman hits Canadian construction zone flagger, then escapes and is arrested nearby for assaulting her kids. (thanks Andrew!)

June 30th, 2017 by admin

A driver in a white Hyundai crossover — whose licence plate is visible — can be seen trying to merge into the stream of traffic from a lane closed for repaving. Orange lane posts can be seen separating the two lanes. Directly in front of the vehicle just metres away is an orange post and a flagger in a high-visibility uniform with a stop sign.

About 39 seconds into the video, the SUV begins to move even though there does not appear to be a gap in traffic. The flagger then steps forward with her stop sign held up, but the vehicle proceeds to hit the flagger and the post, and continue on to overtake the vehicle driving slightly ahead of it.

The flagger can be seen being pushed up against the hood of the SUV before being knocked to the side and partially under the vehicle.

The online video of the hit-and-run sparked outrage, with many flaggers calling for attempted murder or assault with a deadly weapon charges.

“They’re threatening to shut bridges down during rush hour,” group co-founder Diane Herback told CBC’s Early Edition. “The flaggers have had enough.”

the tree transplant experts Environmental Design, from Texas, were called to Idaho to move a Sequoia, they used Caterpillar machinery

June 29th, 2017 by admin

St. Luke’s Health System in Boise is paying $300,000 to relocate the tree to city property, to make room for a hospital expansion.

The tree is believed to be Idaho’s largest Sequoia, not native to the state, it was sent to Boise as a seedling by naturalist John Muir, who played a key role in establishing California’s Sequoia National Park.

Muir, a Scottish immigrant to the United States, rambled around the Sierra Nevada mountains and took long treks across the country to Florida and through Alaska. His writing helped bring attention to the United States’ natural wonders and the threats they faced from logging and ranching. His book on the newly created parks of the West, Our National Parks, caught the eye of President Theodore Roosevelt, who visited Yosemite in Muir’s company to discuss future conservation initiatives.

The tree’s new home is twelve hundred feet away from where it was first planted in 1912.

In October, the tree’s roots were trimmed to keep them from expanding. This spring, wood and burlap walls were built around the root system, then steel pipes and airbags lifted the massive tree into position. Crews then rolled the tree down the street on airbags, getting the tree into its new position at the park by 11:15. On Monday, they leveled the tree and added more dirt from its original position to help it adapt.

David Cox told the AP this is the largest tree his company, Environmental Design, has ever moved.

I posted about another tree moving a couple years ago, it too was a Caterpillar powered move of incredible proportions

Jack Dempsey in his 1929 DuPont

June 27th, 2017 by admin

Probably the most memorable of all duPonts were the Model G’s, introduced in late 1928. Power was from a eight-cylinder L-head Continental 12-K engine that displaces 322 cubic-inches. It had an aluminum cover over the distributor, spark plugs and wiring which made it waterproof and gave it the allusion of having overhead valves. The 125 horsepower engine rested in a wheelbase that measured up to 141 inches. The price of ownership included hydraulic shock absorbers and four-wheel hydraulic drum brakes. The sticker price ranged from #4,360 to $5,750 and buyers were able to select from twelve body styles which included roadsters to town cars. Most were bodied by Merrimac Body Company.

The Merrimac Body Company was established by Stanley Judkins, son of John Judkin’s of the J.B. Judkins Company who were famous for their bodying of Lincolns and Packard’s, among others. Both were located in Merrimac, Massachusetts, along with around 40 other custom coachbuilders. This Mecca location attracted the most influential and prominent buyers from around the world who would come to see the new designs and creations.

The Merrimac Body Company was initially created to aid Judkins in creating vehicles, as Judkins was backlogged by numerous orders for their work. Merrimac’s largest customer became Rolls-Royce of America in Springfield, though they bodied other marques such as Lincoln, Locomobile, Franklin and Packard. Their legacy resides with the work they did for duPont and the sensational Model G Speedsters.

The world was blessed with the introduction of the Model G Speedster at the January 1929 New York Auto Show. It was bodied by Merrimac and shown in two-passenger configuration. There were gently-sweeping fenders, a bull-nose grille, and other unique and distinctive trademarks. The first individual to purchase the Model G Speedster was Mary Pickford for her husband Douglas Fairbanks.

With the Great Depression in full swing, the list of potential clients dwindled. The competition for the luxury car segment was at a pinnacle and Paul duPont decided to suspend production until the economy was more stable.

The company merged into the Indian Motorcycle Company when E. Paul du Pont purchased the Indian Company.
