La Administración Wolf recuerda a los residentes de Pennsylvania que deben usar máscaras mientras disfrutan al aire libre Español, Press Release, Public Health El Gobernador Tom Wolf y la Secretaria del Departamento de Conservación y Recursos Naturales (DCNR), Cindy Adams Dunn, recordaron hoy a los residentes de Pennsylvania que deben usar máscaras mientras disfrutan al aire libre cuando no pueden mantener un distanciamiento social constante de las personas que no son miembros de su hogar.“Es fundamental que los residentes de Pennsylvania aprovechen la oportunidad de salir y disfrutar de nuestros diversos parques, senderos y playas. Es bueno para nuestra salud física y mental. Pero debemos hacerlo de un modo seguro”, dijo el Gobernador Wolf. “La concurrencia a los parques ha aumentado drásticamente. Por ese motivo, los residentes de Pennsylvania deben protegerse a ellos mismos y a las demás personas que disfrutan del aire libre con una máscara”.La Secretaria Dunn dijo que las personas están acudiendo a sitios al aire libre en números récord, según lo demuestran las cifras recientes de la Oficina de Parques Estatales. Los informes de concurrencia de mayo de 2020 indican 5.8 millones de visitantes respecto de los 4.2 millones del año anterior. El sistema de parques tuvo un aumento de más de 1.5 millones de visitantes, lo que supone un incremento del 36%, y 18 parques vieron un aumento de más del 100%.“El fin de semana pasado atrajo a una multitud de visitantes a casi todos nuestros parques estatales, y esos números redoblan la necesidad de que todos los visitantes de los parques sean inteligentes y permanezcan seguros usando máscaras”, dijo Dunn. “Los funcionarios de nuestros parques dicen que las multitudes de este fin de semana festivo fueron ordenadas y, en su mayor parte, guardaban el distanciamiento social, pero que muchos no usaban máscaras. Las máscaras deben usarse por la seguridad de todos, especialmente en las áreas que reúnen a los visitantes de los parques: piscinas y playas cuando no están en el agua, áreas de sanitarios, y oficinas de parques estatales y centros de visitantes”.Para obtener información actualizada sobre los parques estatales y las instalaciones forestales, visite el mapa ¿Qué está abierto y qué está cerrado? del DCNR.El 1 de julio, la Secretaria de Salud la Dra.

SeaRoc Group has launched a new, fully portable communications solution that allows technicians to communicate from within a wind turbine.As radio signals are not able to be detected from within the confines of the turbine because of the metal structure, this can create a challenge for offshore wind farm maintenance.SeaRoc’s new solution enables the radio signal to be broadcast within the turbine so technicians can communicate with third parties.“This new product addresses a very specific and common problem during operations on offshore wind farms,” Nick Murphy, Head of Operations at SeaRoc Group, said.”Supplied in a light, compact unit that can be easily moved and set up, the system enables essential safety radio communications for technicians working inside a turbine. This solution increases both efficiency and safety as it means technicians don’t have to go outside to talk to the rest of the network and they can now talk to other users from the inside of the turbine using their own handheld radio.”This new solution is an extension to SeaRoc Group’s SeaHub range of communications solutions.
While some Gunners fans may have allowed themselves a little bit of fantasy football results over the run-in, which will see Chelsea come to the Emirates Stadium on April 26 and also play both Manchester United and Liverpool, Wenger remains very much focused on the job in hand. “I have enough experience to know that I have to live with reality and reality is points and the next game,” he said. “The dreams are for everybody – we all have dreams at night, but when I wake up in the morning I have to come here and make sure we give everything to win the next game.” Wenger continued: “Chelsea have a difficult schedule, we have a difficult schedule, but what we can only do is master our own schedule. “What we want is to go as high as we can until the end of the season, give our best and we are also in the semi-final of the FA Cup. “So we are at an important moment of the Premier League season and it is a period where you show your quality by focusing on the next game and maintain the quality. “Of course we want to continue to progress and improve – we can learn from victory as well and everything was not perfect in our last game.” Arsenal’s injury problems look to have finally eased, with midfielders Mikel Arteta, Jack Wilshere and Abou Diaby all having stepped up their rehabilitation from injury, along with full-back Mathieu Debuchy. England international Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, though, continues to be hampered by an inflamed groin, while centre-half Laurent Koscielny will face a fitness test on his thigh problem ahead of Saturday’s match. Burnley continue to scrap at the other end of the table, currently second bottom, but only two points from safety. With Manchester City having gone down 1-0 at Turf Moor last month and Tottenham then held to a goalless draw, Wenger is not taking the trip to Lancashire lightly. He said: “You shouldn’t look at the table because they started slowly, but recently they have played very well against all the big teams in the league and are quite efficient at home. “You have to be at their level of physical performance, because they will be there. “On the rest, you want to produce the quality of performance that is expected from us on the technical side, but you have first to fight with them physically, that’s for sure. “We have to make sure we produce the expected performance on the commitment, on the focus and on the quality of our game.” The Gunners head to Turf Moor in search of what would be an eighth straight league victory, following on from last weekend’s 4-1 triumph over Liverpool. Despite their superb run, which has seen confidence grow after some 15 wins in the last 17 through all competitions, the title remains Chelsea’s to lose, as the leaders currently hold a seven-point advantage and also a match in hand. Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has challenged his squad to put any dreams of a late charge for the Barclays Premier League to bed and focus instead on the cold reality of winning at Burnley on Saturday.
