Yet another reason to welcome the end of Daylight Saving Time. According to some Swedish researchers, there are fewer heart attacks following the end of Daylight Saving Time. Apparently most people don’t schedule in enough time for sleep. The time change forces an extra hour in. I guess that causes most to spend the extra hour sleeping…
Why do we have Daylight Saving Time? Here is a site that gives some historical info. Too bad neither McCain or Obama put this into their wish-list of changes. Guess we’ll have to wait till 2012 and see if it’ll make somebody’s list or not. Then again, the campainging for 2012 will probably start late 2009…Yikes!! -KS
Omron’s Sergio Bitti emailed this photo of the Omron PLC Training class in session yesterday in Houston. The class is sponsored by Innovative University, the knowledge arm of Innovative Automation. Looks like everyone is intent in their studies . . . probably waiting on IA’s Stephen Weatherly to show up with the beverages.
We recruit 365 days a year for the best people to join our team. However, our technical services area — industrial control panel building, repair, retrofitting, etc. — is really picking up steam and we need some more help.
If you can work with hand tools and are immaculate in following directions and have great attention to detail, we have a great place for you to work: in our climate controlled shop in Carrollton, Texas.
Call us at 214.574.9500 and ask for Britt Jensen.
After spending two hours on Monday putting together a video from our trade show in Houston — showing various customers smashing boards with their bare hands — the movie making software Pinnacle Studio 11 has decided to crash and has rendered my work useless.
Despite working on it until 7 last night, hoping that in some way I could coax it to work and find my movies (which I know are on the drive because I can open them with other programs), it won’t work. During lunch today, I am going to uninstall and reinstall Pinnacle Studio 11 and start over. Can anyone tell me why I am not headed to Fry’s to pick up a different software?
If you were a board breaker at the show and were looking forward to your vids, sorry, it might be another week before I can get to it again. For now, I’ll leave you with this compelling photo of a horrified teacher (upper left) as she realizes one of her students on a field trip has just mowed through a board at our booth. Yes, he was 18 and yes, he signed the waiver. — ph
