Is Sound The Future Of Fire Fighting?

April 2, 2015 Around Virginia Comments Off on Is Sound The Future Of Fire Fighting?

– By Hannah Hager

What if you could extinguish fire with sound instead of carbon dioxide? That’s what two undergraduates at George Mason University have set out to do.

Engineering seniors Seth Robertson and Viet Tran have submitted a patent application that could potentially revolutionize the red fire extinguisher we’re all familiar with. The students’ version uses low-frequency sound waves to stymie a blaze instead of the messy, white foam.

The idea didn’t emerge out of thin air. The pair decided “to fight fire with sound waves” as part of a class project for a design course in which they built their own prototype using their own money, according to a university press release, which is also “free of toxic chemicals and eliminates collateral damage from sprinkler systems.”

The recent Daylight Savings Time is a reminder to turn back the clocks, but it should also be a reminder to switch out your smoke alarm batteries. The National Fire Protection Association reports that smoke alarms sounded in only half the home fires reported between 2007-2011 in the U.S., and three of every five home fire deaths were in homes with no or non-working smoke alarms.

Fighting fire with low frequency sound waves such as those used in the bass of hip-hop songs could one day prove to be another line of defense. The students aren’t alone in their thinking. Researchers at the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency and West Georgia University are also working on prototypes, according to the press release.

Prince William Mother, Daughter Killed In Germanwings Crash

April 1, 2015 Around Virginia Comments Off on Prince William Mother, Daughter Killed In Germanwings Crash

– By Hannah Hager

When a tragedy happens close to home it can be hard to find any semblance of comfort. Such may be the feeling of the family members and friends of the two Americans killed aboard the Germanwings flight that crash landed into the French Alps this week.

Nokesville mom and daughter Yvonne and Emily Selke were two of the 150 passengers that died on the flight that took off from Spain, but never made it to its destination in Germany. Nokesville is in neighboring Prince William County.

Father and husband Raymond Selke confirmed to the Washington Post that his wife and daughter were the two Americans on the ill-fated flight. A majority of the passengers were German and French. Details are still emerging around what exactly happened. It is believed that the co-pilot, 28 year-old German national Andreas Lubitz, locked the head pilot out of the cockpit after he momentarily left his seat. The co-pilot then intentionally grounded the plane into the mountains.

Poe Museum Vows to Find the Next Edgar Allan Poe

April 1, 2015 Around Virginia Comments Off on Poe Museum Vows to Find the Next Edgar Allan Poe
poe museum

Who will be the next Edgar Allan Poe? The Poe Museum in Richmond intends to find out. From June 21-27, the museum will host its annual Edgar Allan Poe Young Writers’ Conference for high school students. Designed and founded in 2004 by Edgar Award-winning author and Edgar Allan Poe’s cousin, Dr. Harry Lee Poe, the Edgar Allan Poe Young Writers’ Conference attracts students from across the country to take part in a unique and intensive writing experience. In addition to participating in daily workshops, the students will learn from writing professionals, including award-winning novelists, editors, journalists, poets, and playwrights. What makes the conference special is its Poe connection. Richmond was home to Edgar Allan Poe for 13 years, and it is here that he began his literary career. Students will learn from and be inspired by Poe by studying his craft as well as by visiting the sites that inspired or served as settings for his greatest works.

Past speakers have included Nero, Lefty, and Shamus Award-winning author Brad Parks; Hammett Prize-winning novelist and journalist Howard Owen; Edgar Award-winning biographer and educator Dr. Harry Lee Poe; and Theresa Pollack Award-winning editor Mary Flinn.
The conference is designed to empower students to be leaders, educators, and writing professionals. So far, past students have become published authors and have been accepted into prestigious university writing programs.

To learn more about the conference, please call the Edgar Allan Poe Museum at 804-648-5523 or tours@poemuseum.org.

New Carrier Stationed In Norfolk

April 1, 2015 Around Virginia Comments Off on New Carrier Stationed In Norfolk

The Virginia congressional delegation has announced that the U.S. Navy will position its newest carrier, the Gerald Ford, at Naval Station Norfolk for the next several years. This will provide an additional aircraft carrier to the region until 2018 when the USS Lincoln returns to its home port. The Navy has also decided to reverse an earlier decision and will maintain Little Creek as a deep water amphibious port and homeport four amphibious ships at Little Creek through 2020. The delegation worked with the Navy to fund critical infrastructure upgrades for Little Creek, including a $30 million electrical grid upgrade in 2012.

“This is tremendously good news for Virginians and for the Navy. Not only will this create thousands of jobs in the region, but Virginia is home to the world’s best shipbuilders and contractors. Aircraft carriers are vital to projecting the country’s strength, and there is no better place to homeport the Gerald Ford than Norfolk,” Sen. Mark Warner said. “I want to commend the delegation, the Navy, and local leaders for this strong partnership that has resulted in securing funds for critical upgrades. I am especially pleased with the decision to maintain Little Creek as an amphibious port. These two important commitments demonstrate the Navy’s confidence in Virginia’s world class ports.”

“Combined with our successful effort last year to restore funding for the refueling and overhaul of the USS George Washington, the Navy’s decision to homeport the USS Gerald Ford in Norfolk is welcome news for Hampton Roads,” said Sen. Tim Kaine. “The temporary addition of another carrier will bring thousands of new sailors and their families to the region and our shipyards and shipbuilding industry will benefit greatly from the opportunity to take on more projects in support of our nation’s Naval forces.”

“The Navy’s decision to position the USS Gerald R. Ford at Naval Station Norfolk is great news for Hampton Roads,” said Rep. Bobby Scott. “The Ford will be the pride of the fleet, largely in part due to the talented work of Virginia’s shipbuilders. Our region’s local, state and congressional leadership has worked together on maintaining a strong Navy presence in Hampton Roads and this decision, as well as the decision to maintain Little Creek as a deep water port, is a testament to that collaborative work.”

“The Navy’s decision to homeport the USS Gerald R. Ford (CVN-78), our nation’s most advanced carrier and the first in its class, in Norfolk is welcomed news. Hampton Roads, which is home to more men and women in uniform than any other region in the country, undeniably leads in defending our nation, and remains the best place for any command to call home,” said Rep. Scott Rigell, who noted that the move will spur economic growth and stimulate short and long-term job creation.

Loudoun Getting Out–And–About

April 1, 2015 Around Virginia Comments Off on Loudoun Getting Out–And–About

Longer Days Have Us Eyeing Our Calendars

– By Andrea Gaines

Last fall the Farmer’s Almanac predicted that the mid-Atlantic region’s impending winter would be “cold, wet and white.” And, that was pretty accurate.

Now, though Loudouners are shaking off the snowflakes and making plans.

With so much right here – from historic towns and villages … to great retail shops and galleries … farms, wineries, distilleries and breweries … historic spots, mountainside trails, parks and more – it’s hard to decide what to do first. Here are some ideas as we all head into April …

Wait … How Many Daffodils?

Nature lays out a carpet of everything pink, green, yellow and lavender as Loudoun heads into April, and great flower and garden-related events abound.

52nd Annual Upperville Garden Club Daffodil Show is April 14. With thousands of daffodils of all sizes, colors and forms, this American Daffodil Society show will not disappoint (www.uppervillegardenclub.org).

25th Annual Leesburg Flower And Garden Festival is April 18 & 19. Described as an annual “rite of spring” – with everything from music to plant sales to a wine and beer garden to landscaping displays and kids’ entertainment – the festival has something for all (www.flowerandgarden.org). The Loudoun Wildlife Conservancy Native Plant Sale is also April 18 at Morven Park (www.loudounwildlife.org).

Virginia Garden Week is April 18–25. Known as “America’s Largest Open House,” Virginia Garden Week is another rite of spring, welcoming visitors at hundreds of magnificent homes, gardens and historic sites throughout the state. There are several sites in the Leesburg area, and/or an easy drive from here in Winchester, Warrenton and Front Royal (www.vagardenweek.org).

Flower And Garden Classes, Demonstrations And Exhibits. Our area has many opportunities for both intensive and everyday gardening classes. Three great sources are Blandy Experimental Farm, State Arboretum of Virginia (blandy.virginia.edu), Rust Nature Sanctuary (www.audubonnaturalist.org), and master Gardeners of Loudoun County (FaceBook).

Wait … How Many Calories ?Would I Burn?

It varies by your age, height, weight and sex, of course. But, on average, a person burns 150 calories per hour during a slow walk, almost 500 hiking cross country, 245 walking the dog, 200 bird watching, and 200 pushing a stroller or walking with their children. With 27 county parks and 11 community centers, 8 region parks and easy access to both the WO&D bike trail and the 2,174-mile Appalachian Trail – Loudouners have lots of opportunities to get moving. We also have some of the most advanced private heath clubs in Northern Virginia.

So, here are some tips for finding that perfect recreational opportunity this spring …
A good source for area fitness clubs is the Loudoun County Chamber of Commerce (www.loudounchamber.org).

Earth Day’s 45th Anniversary is April 22. Three organizations with local events are: Earth Day Loudoun (www.earthdayatloudoun.org), The Nature Generation (www.natgen.org) and the Loudoun Wildlife Conservancy (www.loudounwildlife.org).

A quick search of parks, trails and community centers at www.loudoun.gov will connect you with Banshee Reeks Nature Preserve, Claude Moore Park, Potomack Lakes Sportsplex and other great opportunities for individual and family recreation.

For more information on nearby access points for the Appalachian Trail go to www.appalachiantrail.org. For the WO&D Bike Trail go to www.wodfriends.org.
For camping, hiking, and canoeing try Watermelon Park (www.watermelonpark.org).
Wait … George Washington ?Really Did Sleep Here?

George Washington did indeed sleep here – at Middleburg’s 1728 Red Fox Inn & Tavern. Loudoun County is a magnet for local and visiting history buffs alike. Here are some ideas for how Loudouners can get out and about to enjoy our local history and hospitality this spring.

Loudoun’s historic towns and villages are a great place to visit. Old-fashioned county stores, where you can grab some lunch, also anchor many of our historic villages – including Bluemont, Philomont, Waterford and Middleburg. Go to www.loudoun.gov and search “county historic districts” – lots of things to explore, there.

The Loudoun Museum cares for and displays approximately 8,000 local artifacts – from documents signed by Presidents Washington and Monroe, to a schoolgirl’s 18th Century sampler (www.loudounmuseum.org).

A sampling of other museums and historic libraries include: The National Sporting Library and Museum (www.nsl.org), Thomas Balch Library (www.balchfriends.org), The Winmill Carriage Museum at Morven Park (www.morvenpark.org), and The George C. Marshall House (www.georgecmarshall.org). A little further afield but worth the drive is the Shenandoah Valley Discovery Museum (www.discoverymuseum.net).

The Loudoun County Bed & Breakfast Guild 6th Annual Open House & Self-Guided Tour is coming right up, too, on May 4. The tour features 10 Bed & Breakfast stops as well as helpful hints about the nearby wineries, lunch stops and farm shops you can visit along the way (www.loudounbandb.com).

Enjoy, and look for more out-and-about opportunities in our May issue.
