Giant Particle Storage Ring Headed to Fermilab from NY

by The Rullo Team

A particle storage ring spanning 50 feet in diameter is making a 3,200-mile journey from New York to Illinois.

The 50-foot-wide electromagnet will travel to Fermilab by boat, barge and truck this summer to be part of a new experiment that will study particle physics.

A plan has been devised that involves loading the ring onto a specially prepared barge and bringing it down the East Coast, around the tip of Florida and up the Mississippi River to Illinois.

The ring is expected to leave New York in mid-June and arrive in Illinois in late July, 2013.

From the Mississippi River, the barge will travel along the Illinois/Des Plaines River before stopping at the Ozinga port in Lemont, located near the Lemont Road bridge. From there, the ring will be loaded on to the back of another truck and driven to Fermilab.

The ring is one of the widest loads ever to be transported across roads in Illinois, so the proposed route takes it across the widest roads available, including I-355 and I-88. Because the truck will move at about 5 miles per hour and will require portions of roads to be closed, the move from the port to Fermilab is scheduled to take place on two consecutive nights with escort from police and other officials.

No disruption of commuter traffic is expected, officials said.

For more details about the experiment that will likely begin collecting data in 2016, please visit www.livescience.com

How To Keep Your Grass looking Its Best

by The Rullo Team

What kind of “Lawn-Owner” are you?  Visit the Lowes website to figure out which category best describes you. 

Lawn-Owners are categorized as follows:  The Minimalist, The Average Lawn Owner, and The Enthusiast.  The most important lawn care tip that falls under all categories is this: 

Mowing is Key.  Set your mower high and keep your mower blades sharp.

All lawns need basic cleanup in the spring: raking leaves and picking up sticks. Depending on how much time and money you would like to invest, you will want to fertilize, add weed control, aerate, dethatch, water, edge and trim, etc.  The Enthusiast will fertilize and feed AGAIN.

During the hot summer months, along with regular mowing, you have the option to treat your lawn for grubs if necessary.  The Enthusiast will have rain gauges available to determine exactly how much watering is needed.

For Fall, the lawn will need to be fed early and late.  The Enthusiast, who probably has a mulching mower, will want to mulch leaves into their lawn.  Water as needed until the lawn goes dormant.  

Everyone, even The Minimalist, should clean off their equipment for winter storage.

Pick the program that’s right for you!
