Galveston Capital Tourism and Marketing Hotel Sued Over Acid-Related Injury



GALVESTON — A deliveryman is suing Eighteen Seventy Strand Corp., which does business as the Hotel Galvez, alleging he was severely injured after stepping in a bucket of acid on the premises.

Jason Velez Roman filed a complaint on March 6 in the Galveston County District Court against Eighteen Seventy Strand Corp., alleging that the property owner failed to maintain the premises in a reasonably safe condition and free of hazards.

According to the complaint, the plaintiff was delivering goods to the defendant's property, at 2024 Seawall Blvd. in Galveston, on July 30, 2015, when he stepped on a bucket that contained acid. The bucket broke as his foot went through the bucket, the complaint said. He sustained severe injuries and damages, medical expenses, loss of earning capacity, pain and suffering and mental anguish. The plaintiff holds Eighteen Seventy Strand Corp. responsible because the defendant allegedly failed to correct the unreasonably dangerous condition.

The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks monetary relief of more than $1 million and for such further relief to which he may be entitled. He is represented by Jorge L. Gomez of the Gomez Law Firm in Houston.

Tyre&Auto Southbourne Group Review: 4 benefits of a good exhaust control

Today, living also involves dealing with pollution; especially to those people living in major cities, and because of the frequent use of cars and other modes of transportation in those places, having a smoky environment is quite normal.

If there were good effects the modern society gave to us, it also had bad effects. With constant use of combustion engines, its damaging outcomes still linger in our environment. Millions of people are prone to its harmful consequences and chances of being suffocated are high due to the fumes expelled into the environment by large numbers of vehicles each day.

A proper exhaust control can decrease the effects of exhaust fumes from combustion engines. Tyre&Auto Southbourne Group listed below some of the benefits of having a good exhaust control:

Noise level becomes minimal

A proper design and installation of an exhaust pipe system can reduce noise pollution, and with the help of a professional car servicing company, this could be achieved with lesser trouble. A broken exhaust pipe could also lead to increased noise levels, so it requires the immediate repair of a professional car service provider like Tyre&Auto Southbourne Group.

Passengers are free from direct exhaust

Car exhausts were built at the tail end of a car, or raised high up, for a reason – and that is to keep the direct exhaust away from the passengers, or to support the escape of exhaust fumes into the atmosphere. Call a car service provider to determine any clogging or leaks to guarantee a more comfortable ride, because this predicament might cause the exhaust to enter through the windows or holes in the chassis.

Engine performance becomes much better

One of the main reasons for a reduced power and performance in your car is a defective exhaust pipe, due to the fact that it decreases the ability of the engine to maximize its burning capability. Inefficient disposal of the waste gases, which resulted from the combustion process, could also lead to a huge percentage of lost in the engine’s power.

Effective fuel consumption

Increasing the efficiency of fuel consumption requires appropriate burning, while a defective exhaust system could reduce car mileage.

A defective exhaust pipe system could also burn your money, not just pollute the atmosphere, so Tyre&Auto Southbourne Group suggests that all people should be responsible for controlling the quantity and quality of exhaust fumes.

Promenade Medical Office to Elk Grove - Richard Isaacs MD


Kaiser Health, wellness facility coming to Elk Grove

On June 16, Kaiser Doctors and area leaders broke ground at what will be the new Eventually Promenade Medical Office Building in South Elk Grove.

The two-story, 67,000- square-foot facility will be designed Kaiser Permanente to focus on matters Affecting patients' mind, body and soul.

It will feature a 50-meter outdoor sports track thatwill be part of a 4,000-square-foot Sports Medicine Center where athletes can be Evaluated and rehabilitated.

In addition to the Sports Center, the medical office will house so adult medicine, pediatrics, women's health, Health Education, radiology, laboratory and pharmacy services.

The building is scheduled to open in late 2011th

Elk Grove Mayor Sophia Scherman, Vice Mayor Steve Detrick, city council member Pat Hume, Dr. Richard Isaacs, MD, and Dr. Lisa Liu, MD, broke ground where the new facility will be built.

"Your presence in Elk Grove Means more quality health and wellness for our residents," Scherman Said in a speech Before They broke ground.

Dr. Isaacs and Dr. Liu so Addressed the crowd.

Liu Said The building will be "thought fully designed" with soothing colors, local artwork and a coffee bistro inside.

Improving Diagnostics and Energy Analysis for Multifamily Buildings: A Case Study

BOILER ENERGY BALANCE
One possible retrofit in buildings with old single-pipe steam heating systems is replacement of the existing brick-set steam boiler. These boilers are usually significantly oversized, have large standby losses, and thus have low seasonal heating efficiencies. Because of the difficulties associated with separating envelope and distribution system performance from boiler performance, energy bill analysis is not adequate for evaluating boiler replacement as an option. However, boiler surface-temperature measurements, heat-flux measurements, and stack heat-loss measurements can be used to make a detailed energy balance the boiler. Such a detailed energy balance contains the information required to evaluate both boiler retrofits and complete boiler replacement. We used the measurements made during our week-long experiment to make a detailed energy balance on the boiler. The surface temperature measurements, along with the boiler room air temperature were used to calculate the convective and radiative heat losses from the surface of the boiler during both on- and off-cycle periods. The heat losses from the steam pipes in the boiler room were estimated from short-term measurements of their surface temperatures. We used the temperature measured on the ground underneath the boiler, along with estimates of outdoor air temperature and the groundwater temperature to determine the conductive heat losses from the bottom of the boiler. The off-cycle stack heat losses were determined from the tracer gas measurements used in the vent damper tests, and the on-cycle losses were determined from steady-state efficiency measurements made by the MEO staff. The heat losses from the boiler surfaces were determined using simplified models of radiative and convective heat transfer, and assuming that the wall surface temperatures were equal to the boilerroom air temperature.
