DuPont™ Vespel® CR-6100 APPLICATION AND INSTALLATION GUIDE FOR CENTRIFUGAL PUMP STATIONARY WEAR PARTS Fluid processing industries have embraced the use of composite materials in pumps to reduce vibration, increase mechanical seal life and MTBR (mean time between repair), reduce the risk of seizure, increase efficiency, and reduce repair costs. API 610, 10th Edition (ISO standard 13709), the latest centrifugal pump standard from the American Petroleum Institute (API), recognizes the use of composites to achieve these benefits. The function of wear rings Wear rings are installed with close radial clearances and separate rotating and stationary, higher and lower-pressure sections of a pump. When shaft deflection occurs due to off-design operation, Background wear rings can experience contact. Historically, wear rings have The CR-6100 grade of DuPont Vespel parts and shapes is a been made from metal, which can gall and seize the pump composite material consisting of carbon fibers held in a Teflon® under contacting or run-dry conditions, resulting in abrupt, high- fluorocarbon resin matrix (PFA/CF Reinforced Composite, energy pump failure. With metal wear rings, design clearance 20 wt% random x-y oriented carbon-fiber). Vespel® CR-6100 has is increased to prevent failure, which has a negative effect on been installed in thousands of pumps in refineries, chemical efficiency, suction conditions, and overall pump vibration.

Healing gardens for cancer populations: one size or style does not have to fit all. Mirroring the diversity of types and stages of cancer, these healing gardens each have their own blend of nature and health services translated and designed into hardscape, softscape, and aesthetic vibe. The commonality among them is the recognition of nature as a healing element. The Gathering Place: Norma’s Healing Garden, Cleveland, Ohio http://www.touchedbycancer.org/about-us/take-a-tour/ Leah Diehl’s categorization of healing gardens describes two branches: passive restorative gardens and active enabling gardens. Diehl describes restorative gardens as those that provide passive “experiences… focus[ing] on the requirements for mental restoration” (2013, p. 4). Enabling, or active, gardens specific for cancer populations may provide therapeutic and medical services such as horticultural therapy, creative arts therapy, acupuncture, and infusion treatments. Therapeutic garden design and health goals can be interrelated. Therapeutic goals for those dealing with cancer often address increasing a sense of hope, renewal, and restoration. Therapeutic interventions can be both active and passive and it is helpful to note that “scheduled and programmed activities” (in both restorative and enabling gardens) are identified as an important characteristic of therapeutic gardens (American Horticultural Therapy Association [AHTA], 1995). Consequently, healing gardens can provide a twofold function: the platform from which therapies and services are delivered as well as a place of physical sanctuary. Understanding the physical and psychological impact of cancer...

This report studies the North America healthcare information technology market (2012 to2017). High costs, disorganized and inefficient delivery systems, high medical and medication error rates, poor communication and care coordination, lack of information support for effective decision-making, and counterproductive payment incentives characterize the present state of healthcare systems. Hence, the need for IT has evolved, as it has the potential to improve workflow, safety, and efficiency within healthcare organizations. The ability to capture, store, exchange, and analyze medical information in electronic form will improve healthcare in many ways. Healthcare IT provides benefits such as improved patient care, increased engagement of patient in healthcare, improved population-based knowledge, development of new tools for medicine, and augmented administrative efficiency

Exposing the 9/11 cover-up is the only way to bring about real change in America. Evidence shows that the 9/11 attacks and anthrax murders provided the “new Pearl Harbor” prescribed by Neoconservatives31 to win immediate public support for previously planned security legislation (USA PATRIOT Act, Homeland Security Department) and their desired wars and occupation in the Middle East, so as to control the region and its resources. The attacks could not have occurred without high-level complicity from inside the U.S. government.32 Similar “false ﬂag” operations have been used by powerful interests throughout history to take a nation to war, including by our own government, according to recent declassiﬁed documents.33 Facing this reality, however diﬃcult, is critical to changing the disastrous course set for our country eight years ago. Justice demands accountability. Change needs truth To our fellow concerned citizens: For the sake of the 9/11 victims and their families and for the safety, freedom and honor of every American, learn the truth and tell others. Challenge the media to stop repeating the lies and the cover-up. Urge your senators and representatives to open a new, truly independent investigation—wherever it may lead. Join the steadily growing nonpartisan 9/11 Truth movement, and demand justice.
The Foundation Center have focused on the ultimate uses and beneficiaries of the donations raised by the relief funds from all sources, and we have issued a comprehensive report on their funding activities and practices.1 While the scope of our 9/11-related efforts has expanded, we have continued to track the foundation and corporate response. Specifically, in the latest year we have added hundreds of new donors to our 9/11 database and thousands of individual gifts. This report provides an overview of 9/11 giving by institutional donors based on data compiled through September 2003, updating and expanding on the findings presented in our November 2002 report.2 The latest information was drawn primarily from 2001 and 2002 annual reports provided by foundation and corporate donors and from data reported by private foundations in their Form 990-PF tax returns. Information also comes from grantmaker news releases and Web sites and donor lists compiled by leading recipients, such as the September 11th Fund of the United Way of New York and the New York Community Trust and the American Red Cross.
