In this sprawling megatropolis of over 24 million people, home to some of the tallest skyscrapers in the world, it appears that big is beautiful. But against this fast paced high rise backdrop there are some very special small packages to be found, from tiny galleries hidden in old French mansions, to speakeasies secreted in basements, to inventive boutique hotels scattered in shikumen style back streets and out the way water villages. But, while Shanghai has its fair share of small hotels, quality and standards of service can be an issue.
After applying a constant load to the bar in a pull compression configuration, tests were conducted by increasing the ambient temperature in an electrical oven up to an appropriate level in order to avoid post curing effects in the adhesive. Two types of resin were tested, as well as two different shapes for the internal hole surface (cylindrical and threaded), in order to evaluate whether different geometrical properties of the hole could affect the performances of the connection, when subjected to elevated temperatures. Experimental results show, that an increase in the temperature of the bonding layer causes a significant decrease in the bond shear strength of the adhesive with respect to the cold state (approximately halves when approaching the Heat Deflection).
One alder said we were pushing an anti military agenda. Others suggested we were denying the city a ‘seat at the table’ if we said no to F 35s. Some alders and the Mayor felt we didn’t have enough information about noise mitigation strategies, flight path options, or the potential reduction of flights if/when simulator flight training is provided..
The board of RZIM, which is led by Zacharias daughter, said it was “shocked and grieved by Ravi actions,” and apologized to his victims: “Words cannot come close to expressing the sorrow that we feel for what you have been through or the gratitude we feel for the bravery with which you have responded.” RZIM denied any sexual misconduct by its founder last fall, and Zacharias had sued one accuser for extortion before he died. Most of the women Miller Martin interviewed said that during massages, Zacharias would grab their breasts or genitals and ask for sexual gratification. Investigators found more than 200 other massage therapists listed in his phones, many of them in Asia.
This past week was tough sledding for most of us at MPD. In addition to the “usual” calls that illuminate the human condition at the worst moments, our world turns upside down and sideways when the victims are children. One two year old murdered, one six month old baby was admitted to a local hospital suffering from significant injuries, and the death of a three week old baby from a tragic accident will reduce grizzled veterans and rookies alike to tears.
