Power restored in Ellwood City – News – Ellwood City Ledger – Ellwood City, PA

ELLWOOD CITY — Power has been restored to a large section of the borough that lost electricity early Friday.

Mark Linville, supervisor of the Ellwood City Electric Department, said a circuit tripped, knocking out power to customers in the Ewing Park area and south side of the community. Power to most was returned within 45 to 90 minutes, he said Friday.

“Everyone is back now,” Linville said.

Hundreds affected by power outage in SE Lubbock

He said they are not entirely certain what caused the circuit trip, but believe it could be connected to a problem reported at Lincoln High School on Crescent Avenue, which still was without power at 11 a.m. as crews worked on its situation. Inmetco, which is not served by the municipal power company but shares a Penn Power line, also reported an outage. The Ellwood City Medical Center did not lose power because it is on a separate grid, Linville said.

Why The US Has No High-Speed Rail – YouTube

 

China has the world’s fastest and largest high-speed rail network — more than 19,000 miles, the vast majority of which was built in the past decade. Japan’s bullet trains can reach nearly 200 miles per hour and date to the 1960s. They have moved more than 9 billion people without a single passenger causality. casualty France began service of the high-speed TGV train in 1981 and the rest of Europe quickly followed. But the U.S. has no true high-speed trains, aside from sections of Amtrak’s Acela line in the Northeast Corridor. The Acela can reach 150 mph for only 34 miles of its 457-mile span. Its average speed between New York and Boston is about 65 mph. California’s high-speed rail system is under construction, but whether it will ever get completed as intended is uncertain. Watch the video to see why the U.S. continues to fail with high-speed trains, and some companies that are trying to fix that. » Subscribe to CNBC: http://cnb.cx/SubscribeCNBC » Subscribe to CNBC TV: http://cnb.cx/SubscribeCNBCtelevision » Subscribe to CNBC Classic: http://cnb.cx/SubscribeCNBCclassic

Supreme Court Strikes Down Conviction Of Mississippi Man On Death Row For 22 Years : NPR

The Supreme Court has struck down the conviction of an African American death-row inmate who was prosecuted six times for the same crime and by the same prosecutor, a man with a history of racial bias in jury selection.

Writing for the court’s 7-2 majority, Justice Brett Kavanaugh said, “The numbers speak loudly. Over the course of the first four trials, there were 36 black prospective jurors against whom the State could have exercised a peremptory strike. The State tried to strike all 36.”

Curtis Flowers has spent 22 years on death row in Mississippi. In his cases, the same prosecutor struck 41 of 42 black jurors.

Hello, Summer! Today’s Solstice Marks Season’s Beginning | Space

Summer will officially arrive in the Northern Hemisphere today (June 21), marking the longest day, the shortest night and the beginning of summer.

The June solstice will occur at 11:54 a.m. EDT (1554 GMT), as the sun reaches the point at which it is farthest north of the celestial equator. To be more precise, when the solstice occurs, the sun will appear to shine directly overhead for a viewer stationed on the Tropic of Cancer (latitude 23.5 degrees north) in the western Atlantic Ocean, roughly 600 miles (965 kilometers) to the northwest of San Juan, Puerto Rico.

From midnorthern latitudes, we can never see the sun directly overhead, but the same principle holds. For example, as seen from Philadelphia at 1:02 p.m. EDT on solstice day, the sun will attain its highest point in the sky for this entire year, standing 74 degrees above the southern horizon.

To gauge how high that is, your clenched fist held at arm’s length measures roughly 10 degrees, so from the City of Brotherly Love, the sun will appear to climb more than “seven fists” above the southern horizon. And since the sun will appear to describe such a high arc across the sky, daylight will be at its longest extreme, lasting 15 hours and 1 minute.
