Quotes

...big conversion project, I generally made sure that nobody was screwing off, that nobody was escaping, and that security was okay," Costello wrote. "It was a neat assignment because the warden had a big house right next to the prison, and we held a lot of events there, parties and the like. He also had a big yacht, and he took me out on it. I could invite anybody from the base with me to picnics on some islands, with beer, women and food."
...to the background information obtained for this patent, VerticalNews journalists also obtained the inventors' summary information for this patent: "An advantage of the present invention is to provide an image display apparatus that inhibits deterioration in image quality caused by a temperature increase in a laser light source apparatus. In order to provide the advantage, an image display apparatus of the present invention includes: a first case having a box shape; a second case housing the first case; a first, a second, and a third light source being held by the first case and each emitting laser light having an emission wavelength different from one another; a projection mouth externally irradiating light output from the first to the third light sources provided in the first case; a heat dissipater held by the first case; and an air passage being provided inside the second case and being capable of guiding air that cools an interior of the second case. The heat dissipater is positioned in the airair passage. In this configuration, the heat dissipater is directly attached to the case of the image display apparatus. Thus, in addition to heat dissipation by a cooling fan provided to each laser light source apparatus, heat transferred to the case of the image display apparatus from each of laser holders for the respective laser light source apparatuses of each color is quickly transferred to the heat dissipater by use of the case of the image display apparatus. Thus, it is possible to prevent an increase in temperature of the laser light source apparatuses due to a long period of operation and thus to prevent a decrease in light output of the laser light sources. Accordingly, deterioration in image quality of the image display apparatus is inhibited. That is, it is possible for the image display apparatus to inhibit deterioration in quality of a projected image and to stably output an image of high quality."
...Ms Ruth Debono a dedicated volunteer, and GO employee, who will again be taking part, said, "The Actavis LifeCycle Challenge is an extremely worthy cause that makes a tangible difference to the quality of life of people, and I am very proud to be a part of it. I have no doubt that the cyclists and support team will do Malta proud yet again."
Yang Sung-jin at Jeju Air said, "We are diversifying flight routes to secure stable earnings amid intense competition."
