Winning Entries Announced in Smithsonian–Cricket Media’s 8th Annual Spark!Lab Dr. InBae Yoon Invent It Challenge

2019 Spark!Lab Dr. InBae Yoon Invent It Challenge

More than 564 Students, through individual and team entries, submitted pioneering inventions to help improve and enhance the lives of older adults.

This group of winners, the honorable mentions, and all the submittals reflect Dr. Yoon’s legacy and vision, including his idea that ‘invention is a state of mind.”

— Sharon Klotz, Head of Invention Education, Lemelson Center

WASHINGTON, DC, USA, May 24, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — Aging affects people’s ability to stay socially engaged, mentally and physically active, and complete everyday tasks, but if the highly original concepts and inventions proposed by students around the globe as part of the 8th Annual Spark!Lab Dr. InBae Yoon Invent It Challenge are any indicator, help is on its way. Cricket Media, in partnership with the Smithsonian’s Lemelson Center for the Study of Invention and Innovation, is pleased to announce the winners of this year’s challenge, which received more than 250 entries from across U.S., South America, Asia, and Europe.

The challenge asked students ages 5–18 to think about a real-world way to help older adults and to devise new, ground-breaking inventions to achieve these goals. For their entries, students were required to follow a seven-step invention process, including identifying a problem, conducting research, sketching their ideas, building a prototype, testing the product, refining it, and marketing it to potential users. The eight winners—four individuals and four teams—and 20 honorable mentions were evaluated by a panel of judges from the Smithsonian, AARP, and Cricket Media.

“[Older adults] love to garden … gardening is good for relaxing, exercising, combating loneliness, and spending time with the family or the community,” say 15-year-old Delaney and Makenzie, inventors of the “Pop Up Planter.” This hydraulic-powered garden bed helps those with limited mobility improve physical, social, and mental health. Addressing the issue of decreased food consumption due to age or medical conditions such as strokes, 11-year-old Ravindu’s Temp Plate is meant to help older adults – who tend to eat more slowly than others – with a means to keep their food warm. Virtual Me, created by 10-year-old Kavi, is an innovative robotic technology that integrates artificial intelligence, virtual reality and augmented reality technology to help older people who live apart from family members to get the emotional support and personal connection they need.

The winners of the team 5–7 age category built Pop Out Stairs, a multipurpose cane that contains a set of foldable stairs, to enable older adults to “feel safe when reaching things up high.” Sophia, winner of the individual 14–21 age category, invented The Helping Hand, a device that helps older adults with arthritis maintain proper oral hygiene. People can slip their hand into a glove that is fitted with various tools for brushing, cleaning, and flossing their teeth, eliminating the need to grip toothbrushes or small pieces of floss.

This year, the two amazing inventions that won the ePals Choice Award, with both receiving tens of thousands of online votes, are the “FIG” created by a team of 11- to 13-year-olds and “The Craw” created by a team of 8-10-year-olds. The “FIG” provides older adults with an easy way to garden indoors and “The Craw” assists older adults in picking up objects off the ground while also serving as a safety light.

“These young inventors have taken the time to research and understand the complexities of aging and have devised brilliant inventions to assist and empower the aging population,” says Laura Woodside, Vice President of Education Products at Cricket Media. “We are proud to showcase their inventions on our global platform. Their work is evidence of their innovative thinking, impressive creativity and their admirable desire to improve the quality life for all.”

“The winning entries reflected not only innovative ideas but also the inventive process.” says Sharon Klotz, Head of Invention Education for the Smithsonian’s Lemelson Center for the Study of Invention and Innovation. “In fact, the process skills – iterative design, collaboration, prototyping, tweaking based on feedback – are lifelong skills applicable in any context. This group of winners, the honorable mentions, and all the submittals reflect Dr. Yoon’s legacy and vision, including his idea that ‘invention is a state of mind.’

Complete List of Individual Winners, by Age:
• Ages 5–7: The Tomato Picker– Brendan D. (Virginia)
• Ages 8–10: Virtual Me – Kavi S. (California)
• Ages 11–13: Temp Plate – Ravindu K. (Connecticut)
• Ages 14+: The Helping Hand – Sophia I. (Missouri)

Ridgewood Racquet Club in New Jersey Is Now Realizing the Benefits of Superb LED Lighting – Guy Albert de Chimay

Ridgewood Racquet Club 5 Courts

Little Silver Racquet Club 3 Courts

Match Point NYC 9 Courts

Discover how Green Arc Energy Advisors greatly enhanced light output and coverage of Ridgewood Racquet Club and similar complexes with LED lighting conversions.

The Eclipse™ fixtures have transformed the lighting in our facility, and our customers are very pleased with the upgrade. Green Arc’s customer service and support far exceeded our expectations.”

— Martin Infante

NEW YORK, NEW YORK, USA, May 24, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — Green Arc Energy Advisors completed a conversion project installing new LED light fixtures at Ridgewood Racquet Club’s 5-court building in Ridgewood, New Jersey, increasing the facility’s lumen output by 100%. With this retro-commissioning project, Green Arc transformed the original 8-per-court 1,080-watt, 480-volt powered metal halide fixture layout by converting over to 44 new 495-watt Eclipse™ LED light fixtures.

The new Eclipse™ fixtures provide optimal distribution across the entire facility, delivering maximum light levels on-court, which are now at the equivalent of 60 foot-candles, as demonstrated by new court light readings. Prior to the conversion, base court readings were registering below 30 foot-candles.

Green Arc’s proprietary optic technology distributes light against reflective roof surfaces at a 180-degree beam angle, eliminating dark spots typically associated with alternate solutions, filling the spaces evenly between the exposed beams. The fixtures were added to the apex of Ridgewood’s complex, utilizing the existing electrical distribution, which required no structural modifications.

In response to the dramatic improvement to the facility’s lighting, Martin Infante, the owner of Ridgewood Racquet Club, said, “The Eclipse™ fixtures have transformed the lighting in our facility, and our customers are very pleased with the upgrade. Green Arc’s customer service and support far exceeded our expectations. We greatly appreciate their professional assistance in completing this project.”

Green Arc previously converted other similar facilities to its LED lighting solutions, including Match Point NYC in Brooklyn, New York, which deployed the same Eclipse™ LED light fixtures in several areas within its expansive facilities, including the tennis and basketball courts and world-class gymnastics-training center. By replacing Match Point’s existing metal halide light fixtures with nearly 140 Eclipse™ LED fixtures, the facility increased its maximum on-court tennis light levels from 40 foot-candles to 80 foot-candles. Moreover, by making the conversion, Match Point was able to virtually eliminate the hassles of regular maintenance. Similarly, Little Silver Tennis Club in Little Silver, New Jersey, installed 36 Eclipse 495-watt fixtures within its new 3-court steel-frame building, yielding maximum on-court light levels of 80 foot-candles. And, like Match Point, Little Silver Tennis Club now experiences hassle-free maintenance, along with all the other benefits that LED lighting provides.

According to Guy Albert de Chimay, Executive Vice President of Green Arc Energy Advisors, “As with all LED upgrades, the benefits extend well beyond the initial usage reductions. In addition to the direct wattage, new Eclipse™ fixtures eliminate almost 4,000 BTUs per hour per lamp in passive heat gain compared to 1,000-watt metal halide lamps, which must be removed by the facilities’ HVAC systems. In most facilities, for every dollar saved at the plug, a dollar is saved in HVAC costs during the cooling season.” Additionally, the new fixtures carry a 10-year warranty and have a 100,000+ hour useful lifespan. All fixtures include 10KV surge protection and are engineered for low glare.

About Green Arc’s Patented Eclipse™ LED Lighting
Designed specifically for the demanding requirements of air dome/air-inflated structures, butler buildings with reflective ceilings, fabric-over-frame structures, natatoriums, and other complexes, Eclipse™ is engineered with innovative Controlled Light Delivery (CLD) technology™ to deliver brighter output, better light distribution, lower wattage, and run much cooler for enhanced longevity, making them ideal for use over all court and field surfaces. By generating 50,000 lumens (405w), 55,000 lumens (450w), or 60,000 lumens (495w), depending on lighting needs, direct energy usage can be reduced to 62%, 58%, or 54%, respectively. Eclipse™ LED lighting is the ideal solution for both amateur and professional sports facilities, in both direct and indirect lighting configurations. Eclipse™ also has sealed LED arrays, making them resistant to water and dust, which will provide years of consistent, trouble-free illumination. In addition, these fixtures qualify for energy rebates in participating jurisdictions.

Esperanto Activist Retired Professor Ronald Glossop Ph.D. to be Featured on CUTV News Radio

SAINT LOUIS, MISSOURI, UNITED STATES, May 24, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — The internationalism of the 20th century has given way to the globalism of the 21st century.
The destruction of war should no longer be necessary to resolve conflicts.

Esperanto was designed to serve as a readily learned second language to foster peace and international understanding.

Retired professor Ronald Glossop Ph.D. is a former president of the American Association of Teachers of Esperanto from 2009 to 2018, as well as a member of the board of directors of Esperanto-USA and a vice president of the International League of Esperanto Teachers.

“Mi parolas Esperanton. I speak Esperanto,” says Glossop. “I've been teaching for 35 years and it’s much easier to learn than most languages.”

Esperanto is the most widely spoken constructed international auxiliary language in the world. The word “Esperanto” translates to English as "one who hopes." There are approximately two million speakers across the world.

The author of Confronting War and a member of Citizens for Global Solutions, Glossop discovered Esperanto through a happy accident.

“One day I was giving a talk about my ideas about what needed to be done in order to make war less likely, to minimize or eliminate war. And I said it would really help is if everybody could speak a common language. Well, one person in the audience was an Esperantist. Afterward he came up and he said, ‘You know, there's already a world language like what you're talking about.’ As I investigated it, it conformed precisely to the ideas I had already developed about what a world language would have to be.”

Esperanto was invented in late 19th century by Polish physician L. L. Zamenhof while a student in Poland.

“He lived in the town of Bialystok where there were four different language groups who were routinely in violent conflict with one another,” says Glossop. “He thought if they could just communicate with each other, it would prevent them from escalating to violence. Once you have a common language, you can talk about your differences.”

The Esperanto alphabet is 28 letters; each letter has one and only one sound. One of the unique features of Esperanto is that there is a perfect correlation between its written language and its spoken language. If you know how to spell it, you know how to pronounce it; if you know how to pronounce it, you know how to spell it.

“By keeping it simple, Esperanto enables people from different countries to readily communicate with each other without having to learn another complicated national language,” says Glossop. “I did not have to learn Chinese before going to China. I did not have to learn Italian before going to Italy.

Dr. Glossop believes Esperanto could help lead us toward a vision of a more peaceful future.

CUTV News Radio will feature Ronald Glossop in an interview with Jim Masters on May 28th at 3pm EDT and with Doug Llewelyn on June 4th at 3pm

News about Dr Leonard Joseph Marchinski

A medical condition of the shoulder or arm severely affects one’s daily activities. The new article by surgeon Leonard Marchinski, MD, explains treatments.

LEONARD JOSEPH MARCHINSKI, M.D. (N/A:N/A)

Elbow surgeries are one of the most crucial ways for treating pain, swelling, tearing, fracture, or dislocation of the muscles, tendons, tissues, and bones that form the elbow joint.”

— Dr. Leonard J. Marchinski, Pennsylvania, orthopedic surgery

WYOMISSING, PENNSYLVANIA, UNITED STATES, May 24, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — The upper limbs or arms and hands are critical for performing almost every activity of daily life. Any disease or injury that affects a shoulder, elbow, forearm, wrist or hand also has a significant impact on a person’s quality of life. Orthopaedic surgeon Dr. Leonard J. Marchinski explains this subject in a new article. The complete article will be available on Dr. Marchinski’s blog at https://leonardmarchinskimd.wordpress.com/

While upper extremity orthopedics refers to any process that is undertaken to treat a problem in the bones, joints, muscles, tissues, nerves, ligaments, and tendons of the hand and upper extremity area, this article focuses on elbow surgeries.

Structure of the Elbow Joint

Elbow is a hinge joint that connects the upper arm to the forearm via humerus and the radius and ulna, respectively. The joint is held together by the lateral collateral ligament (LCL) from the outside and the medial collateral ligament (MCL) from the inside. The joint is also surrounded by a set of muscles that facilitate its movements. The muscles are attached to the bones via tendons and protected by the cartilage covers at the ends. For further protection and lubrication of the joint, bursa sacs are present.

Elbow Surgeries

Just like all other areas of medicine, surgeries make one category of treatment procedures for conditions that affect the structure and/or functioning of the elbows. The elbow joint can get affected due to a variety of reasons, such as injuries, diseases, trauma, aging, and overuse.
Common diseases and elbow conditions that may require surgery for treatment include:
* Arthritis
* Elbow stiffness
* Bone spur
* Fractures
* Dislocations
* Ulnar and radial nerve entrapment
* Elbow instability
* Tennis elbow
* Golf elbow
* Nerve palsy, i.e. the loss of flexion and extension of the elbow
* Radial tunnel syndrome
* Cubital tunnel syndrome
* Osteochondritis dissecans
* Olecranon bursitis
* Repetitive motion disorders

In most cases, surgery is the last choice of treatment and is only suggested or opted for when other measures, such as treatment, injection, splints, and physiotherapies, fail to provide relief.

Methods of Elbow Surgeries

Elbow surgeries can be performed in the following two ways:

1. Open Surgery
The surgical procedures performed in traditional ways i.e. by making incisions on or around the affected area are called open surgeries.
2. Arthroscopic Surgery
Also called keyhole or minimally invasive surgeries, they are performed by using an endoscope. These types of surgeries have been increasingly preferred because of minimal incisions and shorter recovery periods.

Types of Elbow Surgeries

Here are some of the most widely performed elbow surgeries:
* Ulnar Nerve Decompression/Transposition
As evident from the name, this surgical procedure is performed to relive pressure, and when necessary, reposition the ulnar nerve, which is responsible for providing muscles nerve supply and sensation to the forearm and the hand. Several factors can cause the ulnar nerve to get pressured and compressed and causes pain, numbness, and/or irritation in the elbow.

Some conditions that may increase the risk of ulnar nerve compression are cubital tunnel syndrome, fracture of the medial epicondyle – the area where the nerve is naturally located, rheumatoid arthritis, or even due to leaning of the elbow on a hard surface for a prolonged period of time.

During the ulnar nerve transposition surgery, the nerve is relocated from behind the medial epicondyle (its natural position) to the front of the elbow, so it no longer gets compressed or pinched.

* ORIF
ORIF stands for Open Reduction and Internal Fixation. It is a type of elbow surgery that is performed to treat elbow fractures in cases where:
* The broken bone pierces through the skin
* The bone has broken into several pieces
* The broken pieces are significantly dislocated or out of alignment

These conditions usually occur when a person falls on an outstretched hand, but certain diseases, like osteoporosis, also increase the risk. The procedure involves repositioning the bones and fixing them in place with plates, screws, nail, or wires; whatever the surgeon deems necessary. The surgery is usually performed under general anesthesia.

The Bottom Line

Elbow surgeries are one of the most crucial ways for treating pain, swelling, tearing, fracture, or dislocation of the muscles, tendons, tissues, and bones that form the elbow joint. Hence, they make a crucial category of the upper extremity orthopedics.

About Leonard Joseph Marchinski, MD

Dr. Leonard Marchinski is a medical doctor in Pennsylvania, focusing on orthopedic surgery. In addition to General Orthopedics, Dr. Marchinski provides medical and surgical treatments such as:

* Endoscopic Carpal Tunnel Release and treatment of similar Nerve Compression Syndromes
* Wrist Arthroscopy and treatment of Wrist Instability
* Reconstruction of the Base of the Thumb Joint
* Tendon and Ligament Repair, Reconstruction, Transfers
* Shoulder Replacement
* Operative and Non-Operative Fracture Care

PRECAMBRIAN: A Time Traveling Adventure in Music by Sverre Knut Johansen with Robert Rich

Sverre Knut Johansen in his workshop

Sverre Knut Johansen of Norway has created a musical journey back through time with PRECAMBRIAN on Spotted Peccary Music.

Dreamers and Warriors photo by Martin Stranka

Album cover photograph, Dreamers and Warriors, was created by international award-winning photographer Martin Stranka

Robert Rich

San Francisco-based ambient music, dark-ambient, tribal, and trance music artist Robert Rich collaborated on Precambrian.

New Spotted Peccary Release PRECAMBRIAN by Sverre Knut Johansen offers atmospheric aural escape, collectible physical product, and audiophile-worthy recording.

The music is epoch-based where I try to convey with nature sounds what might have happened on Earth, creating moods around certain events that have taken place, like oxygen, birds, water, and ice.”

— Sverre Knut Johansen

PORTLAND, OREGON, USA, May 24, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — The story of life on Earth is an ambitious undertaking. Focusing his conceptual musical lens on the prehistoric development of planet Earth and its inhabitants, Sverre Knut Johansen is joined by noted electronic music maestro and soundscape pioneer Robert Rich to create a deeply compelling ambient-electronic odyssey that serves as a virtual soundseeing tour through our planet's vivid history. PRECAMBRIAN, the album, releases on the Spotted Peccary Music label this Friday, May 24, 2019.

PRECAMBRIAN takes the listener through significant geological periods and evolutionary events of Earth's 4.6 billion year history, bringing the epochs and eons to life through musical poetry and recorded natural sounds. The sonic landscapes, both organic and electronic, are always deep and captivating, evolving through abstract amorphous spaces, peaceful harmonious moods, and dramatic eventful moments. One almost wishes it were required curriculum in every 8th Grade Science classroom, for enhancing studying as much as learning evolution and geology.

Sverre Knut Johansen, with Robert Rich, has created a sonic masterpiece that goes from the dim beginnings of gas and dust particles through the formation of the planets, the beginnings of microbes and simple algae creating the air we now breathe, all the way to our current Anthropocene epoch. The music is built on a foundation of swirling synths, pulsing electronics, and occasional rhythmic moments, creating a space where Johansen’s mesmerizing compositions are highlighted by Robert Rich’s piano, with added guitar textures by David Helpling. Add to that the recordings of environmental sounds, both natural and mechanical, and the immersive world of PRECAMBRIAN springs to life with depth, energy, and artistic vitality.

"A meditation on the story of life on Earth is an ambitious undertaking. Perhaps only the language of synthesizers is complex enough to handle it all," writes music critic Robin B. James. "The natural sounds of trickling water and a few supersonic aircraft in the distance are realistically expressed, everything else is purely electronic. This is music for thinking about creation, certainly not a narrative explaining the Big Bang Theory. What you will hear is a meditation."

Album packaging and design stands out on this release, from its 3-fold geological timescale and 20-page booklet to the award-winning photography. PRECAMBRIAN’s cover art, Dreamers and Warriors, was created by international award-winning photographer Martin Stranka, a Czech photographer who won first place with the image at the 2019 prestigious Sony World Photography Awards, chosen from 326,000 photographs from 196 countries. Watch the "unboxing" video: https://t.co/cXt4l0aouX?amp=1

“The epochs on Earth are an exciting topic for me," Johansen professes, "so I was inspired to create an album around the concept of the Earth's geological time scale. The music is epoch-based where I try to convey with nature sounds what might have happened on Earth, creating moods around certain events that have taken place, like oxygen, birds, water, and ice.” Deep listeners may notice some of the real world ambiance skillfully woven into the tracks throughout the album.

Johansen and Rich transport the listener through the ages as they conjure sonic visions of a planet in constant change. The music evolves in a vivid timelapse that unfolds before the ears, occasionally pausing to experience key events along the way, before the title track ends the album with a sweeping musical epilogue that acts as the closing credits to Johansen’s epic geologic adventure.

Tracklist:
1. HADEAN EON (04.56)
2. ARCHEAN EON (06.40)
3. PROTEROZOIC EON (11.33)

5. MESOZOIC ERA (06.51)
6. CENOZOIC ERA (07.47)

About Robert Rich:
Robert Rich has helped define the genres of ambient music, dark-ambient, tribal, and trance, so of course his music remains hard to categorize. Part of his unique sound comes from using home-made acoustic and electronic instruments, microtonal harmonies, computer-based signal processing, chaotic systems and feedback networks. Rich began building his own analog synthesizers in 1976, when he was 13 years old, and later studied for a year at Stanford’s Center for Computer Research in Music and Acoustics (CCRMA). He released his first album Sunyata in 1982, and across four decades he has released over 40 albums. Rich has performed in caves, cathedrals, planetaria, art galleries and concert halls throughout Europe and North America. His all-night Sleep Concerts, first performed in 1982, became legendary in the San Francisco area. Rich’s solo albums available on Spotted Peccary Music include Tactile Ground, Vestiges, What We Left Behind, Filaments, Nest, The Biode, Ylang, Medicine Box and Echo of Small Things.

You may think plumbing is all about rigid pipe, but the experts at Haynes Plumbing Services are keenly aware that a new technology called flexible PEX pipe.

LORTON, VIRGINIA, UNITED STATES, May 23, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — Haynes Plumbing Services Offers Fully Licensed, Insured and Trusted Plumbing Expertise to Residential Customers

You may think plumbing is all about rigid pipe, but the experts at Haynes Plumbing Services are keenly aware that a new technology called flexible PEX pipe offers its residential customers a great many benefits, including durability, reliability, and cost-effectiveness.

Unlike more traditional piping solutions, PEX plumbing systems can be installed with any combination of Crimp, Clamp, Push-To-Connect, Expansion, and Expansion-With-Compression connections. According to Haynes Plumbing Services:

Crimp connections use a copper ring outside the pipe married to a special fitting inside the pipe. To make a connection, it’s easy to slide on the crimp ring and then insert the fitting. A specialized crimping tool then makes the connection in one easy operation, which is easily verified using a “go/no-go” gauge.

Clamp connections are similar, using a stainless-steel ring outside the pipe married to a different style of insert. However, clamp connections are easier to take apart if and when repairs become necessary.

After 25 years in the plumbing business, the experts at Haynes Plumbing Services know that durable, leak-proof PEX connections can’t be done without properly calibrated tools. Any error in calibration is almost certain to produce a leaky connection.

Push-To-Connect fittings use a simple stiffening sleeve that pushes into the pipe, after which the connecting pipe can be pushed onto the other end of the fitting. Although this system costs a little more, in many ways this is quickest, easiest method for building a PEX plumbing system. It requires no special tools, and these connections can be taken apart and used again, when necessary.

Because they can be removed and replaced with more permanent connections later on, Haynes Plumbing Services often uses Push-To-Connect PEX fittings for temporary or emergency repairs.

Any of these three kinds of PEX connections work well behind walls and buried in soil, although it’s important to wrap the connection in impermeable material to prevent corrosion after soil burial.

Expansion (or “cold expansion”) connections use a PEX expansion ring and a matching fitting. The expansion ring slides over the end of the pipe, leaving a short overlap on the end of the pipe. Then an expansion tool working within the end of the pipe temporarily stretches that overlap enough to accept the connection fitting. The expanded PEX pipe automatically shrinks to its original size, creating a water tight seal.

This more “professional” style of connection is the strongest, and allows for the largest flow through the pipe. It also eliminates any need for “go/no-go” gauges or carefully calibrated crimping and clamping tools. It’s easy to see at a glance whether the expansion connection is a good one.

Expansion With Compression connections combine the expansion idea with the compression idea, utilizing a metal compression sleeve outside the pipe and a fitting on the inside. A special tool for this connection is built with both an expansion head and compression jaws. But because this connection involves a two-step process, the work can take a little longer to do, particularly in tight spaces where manipulating the tool can be tricky.

These two methods also produce the only PEX connections approved for burial in concrete.

In addition to PEX installations and repair, Haynes Plumbing Services handles any kind of plumbing or sewer work you may need, from fixing a leak to installing new fixtures, and more.

Haynes Plumbing Services is available to serve you throughout Virginia: Fairfax, Alexandria, Reston, Herndon, Vienna, and more.
