More used needles found in Kansas City spikes concern over Hepatitis C in metro | FOX 4 Kansas City WDAF-TV

KANSAS CITY, Mo. — When Michelle learned she had contracted Hepatitis C from intravenous drug use, she remembered precisely how it happened. “It was an accident,” said Michelle, who asked that FOX4 not publish her last name. “The used needle got mixed up with the new one, and it just happened. That’s how I ended up getting Hep C.” Drug users and experts in the medical field say tracking new cases of Hepatitis C can be difficult because many addicts infected will never seek medical attention. Health advocates voiced concern over rates of undiagnosed cases of Hepatitis C after yet another discarded needle recently turned up in a Kansas City neighborhood. On Wednesday, Diane Euston disposed of a used needle and rubber tourniquet from a residential street just south of Waldo. “We’re only a block and a half from an elementary school and three blocks from a high school,” she said. One resource many drug addicts, like Michelle, are using to address the issue is the needle exchange program at KC Care Health Center in Midtown. If you come across drug paraphernalia on your property, experts say don’t touch it. Call 311 or your local health department first for hel...

QOTD: Are All These Turbocharged Cars Going to Last?

Of course, there are a lot of other trends, too. That whole SUV coupe thing is bizarrely catching on. And I think we can all agree that it’s only a matter of time before someone sees the Subaru Outback’s 20 years of unrivaled success and finally decides to re-enter the wagon game. But in the last few years, it’s turbocharging that has really managed to beat out everything else for today’s most popular automotive trend. These days, everything is turbocharged. And I mean everything. Years ago, it was just Volvos and Saabs and maybe the occasional Audi or so. It was an unusual thing, turbocharging, and we weren’t exactly sure what to make of it. “That car is TURBOCHARGED,” people would say. “Oooooh.” It was so much of a unique thing back in the day that companies would advertise products that were turbocharged when it couldn’t possibly be so. There were turbocharged shavers. Turbocharged medicines. Turbocharged toys. All used roughly the same level of forced induction as a grapefruit. In modern times, everything is turbocharged. Family cars. Subcompacts. Luxury sedans. Ford has not one but two different turbocharged F-150s: a 2.7-liter and a 3.5-liter. They’re...

Can you build a working EM weapon from three microwave ovens? Apparently, yes. Should you do

Can you build a working EM weapon from three microwave ovens? Apparently, yes. Should you do so? Maybe not when the best safety gear you can muster is a metallized Mylar film fetish suit and a Hershey’s Kiss hat. Proving that language need not be a barrier to perfect understanding of bad ideas, the video below tells you all you need to know, even without subtitles in the non-Russian language of your choice. [KREOSAN]’s build is obnoxiously obvious — three magnetrons mounted on a tin can “resonator” with a foil-covered waveguide at the business end. The magnetrons are tickled by a stun-gun that’s powered by a pack of 18650 batteries. The video shows some “experiments”, like lighting up unpowered CFL bulbs from about 15 meters away and releasing the Blue Smoke from the electrical system of a running motor scooter. Assuming they weren’t added in post, the artifacts in the video belie the gun’s lack of shielding for the operator. We doubt any of the ad hoc safety gear would provide any protection from the resulting microwaves, but we also doubt that it matters much when things have gotten this far. We’re not too sure about this one — some of the zapping stunts look a little too conv...

Three-Phase Conversions Gain Traction for Grain Dryers

Father and son both wondered late last year why they hadn’t done it sooner: installed three-phase motors with phase converters on their single-phase service.  “I don’t understand the science, but the converter changes the phase of the electricity coming in to allow us to use a three-phase motor,” says Tyler Wynthein of Arlington, Iowa, who farms with his father, David.  They now run two large motors that would not have been feasible to run on single phase before. They aren’t the only ones doing it. John Molumby, customer relations manager for the Allamakee-Clayton Electric Cooperative (ACREC) in northeast Iowa, says Wynthein’s reaction is typical, and he’s seeing it frequently.  “Typically, people wish they had done it a lot sooner. Usually the price scares them at first. Once they make the change, they wish they had done three phase long ago,” Molumby says.  Three-phase availability should be a prime consideration for any operation that needs motors with more than 10 hp., Molumby says. “You don’t have to live where your grain dryer is. You can turn them on and monitor them from home.”  If three phase is reasonably close, Molumby says getting a new dryer and some financial help ...

CBD Oil With THC In It Is Now In Kansas Stores, But Good Luck Figuring Out If It’s Legal

TOPEKA — They’re here in Kansas. CBD products with a bit of that oh-so-taboo THC in them. To vape, to put under your tongue. Some retailers argue those products became legal on July 1 because of tweaks to state regulation of cannabis-related substances in a bill supporting the state’s fledgling industrial hemp program. THC is the chemical that puts the high in medical and recreational cannabis. Polls show most Americans want it legalized. Kansas is one of a small handful of states with the most restrictive laws against it. Other vendors who also believe small amounts of THC became legal in Kansas on July 1 geared up to sell, then got cold feet after a hemp advocacy group posted a warning from a high-level Kansas Bureau of Investigation official on its Facebook page. “Full spectrum is not legal,” says the statement, which Kansans for Hemp organizer Kelly Rippel says he received from KBI executive officer Katie Whisman. “CBD isolate or CBD containing no other controlled substance is what was carved out as legal.” Full spectrum commonly refers to CBD products that include THC. (Although, buyer beware: Sometimes products labeled “full spectrum” don’t actually contain THC, and somet...
