Whenever you need to move items in bulk, a belt conveyor is a great option. These are the workhorses of the production line, shipping department, a loading dock and in the manufacturing system as well.

With a range of different styles and sizes, a belt conveyor can be configured or designed to meet any material moving requirements. Both covered and uncovered, these conveyors can easily move boxes, containers, or large or small aggregate materials, dry items or lump materials up, down or along a selected path.

It is also possible to use different types of models in a belt conveyor to facilitate material movement in a production line. With their versatility, these are going to be a go-to piece of equipment and one which will increase productivity and efficiency over the manual movement of materials or other types of systems.

One of the most interesting factors in adding a belt conveyor to a manufacturing system is the option to have it move materials horizontally or vertically. It is possible to use a series of conveyors, or even combine conveyors and augers, to move materials both along a horizontal path as well as straight up into processing equipment or into storage containers.

When conveyors are used to moving equipment vertically or on an incline, the belt is specifically designed to hold the material in place. The design of the belt, or the grip, will be determined by the materials as well as the incline percentage.


Based on the size and motor of the belt conveyor, different designs and options will have more or less capacity. Knowing the size of the material or components which will be moved along the conveyor is critical in making the right selection.

With the continual feed operation, this equipment will provide a steady, measured amount of material based on the speed of the belt. They can also be designed for manual operation, allowing the technician to turn the conveyor system off and one as needed.

With the design of the belt conveyor, they require less energy to operate as they use a wider belt area that evenly distributes the weight of the items on the belt. This often means a smaller motor is required that with other types of lift systems, helping you to save money on operations.

There are many different benefits to choosing a belt conveyor over other types of conveyor systems. By considering the advantages and looking at the various designs out there, you will find a conveyor just right for your requirements.

Financial difficulties do not directly affect relationships but it does influence the way people perform in a relationship.

Relationship with lenders

This is the most obvious relationship that will be strained if you continuously incur bad credit. Lender-borrower relationship is a very sacred ad mutual relationship (especially if it is in prime lending). The lender is able to keep his business running because of borrower, and the latter is able to get by through the loans provided by lenders. Bad credit score ruins a relationship in the sense that the previous carefree relationship is now strained because of the bad credit factor. Instead of continuously making transactions with the same lender for an extended period of time, bad credit might make you ineligible to negotiate with that company again and this brings you to other lenders or probably to subprime lending institutions.

Relationship with your family

When the breadwinner is having financial problems, his or her family members are the ones who first see the abrupt changes in his mood and disposition. The breadwinner may be aloof for quite some time until he has contemplated about the matter or found a solution for it. The husband or wife who works for the family is likely to concentrate on working and finding new ways to get more income. The usual result is lack of time for the family who might think they are being taken for granted.

Then again, if the situation is discussed with the members of the family they might feel equally stressed as the main provider is. Having bad credit score means taking careful financial decisions to avoid further damaging of the breadwinners credit portfolio. This translates to decreased instances of dining out, postponing family trips or the purchase of certain items (i.e. new laptop or car), and prohibiting extended use of appliances inside the houseall for the purpose of eliminating unnecessary expenses.

Relationship with yourself

This is not a way of telling people that you have a split personality. Rather, it only attests to the fact that relationships with other people are just as important as your relationship with yourself. A bad credit score ruins a relationship with yourself simple because, as a breadwinner, youll be blaming yourself for the financial difficulties that your family experiences. Bad credit scores signal that you are not wise enough I spending what you earn and that much thought must be given on where you spend the money. You might be guilty of committing several rounds of alcoholic drinks at least once a week. Or probably you are spending too much on your car or clothes. Once the realization sinks in, you become vulnerable to being blamed and gives you guilt all throughout the process until financial recovery arrives.

Indeed, bad credit scores ruins relationships. Besides these three that were listed down here, there are other relationships that might be jeopardized because of incurring bad credit. But remember that the bad credit is not the direct reason for the collapse of the relationship; it is only a factor. Therefore, once the credit scores go up again, youll find more time for your family, reconnect with your old loan provider, and reclaim the self worth you lost when you were not in control of the financial situation before.

Virgin Media announced weak results last week, in part due to competition from Sky. Virgin Media lost 47,000 customers from January to March 2007, while Sky gained 51,000 customers in the same time period.

Franklin Mutual Advisers, which has 9.4% of the Virgin Media shares (Sir Richard Branson owns 11%) wants to have a meeting with Virgin Media about its “strategic direction, corporate governance and management”. Franklin Mutual Advisers is known to take great interest in the companies in which it invests.

This has caused many of the other investors of Virgin Media to demanding meetings with the management of the company. The demands are due to confusion among shareholders at the direction in which the company is heading, The Guardian reports. After the attempt to buy ITV was stopped last year, the shareholders think that Virgin Media may lose its battle with Sky and TalkTalk.

Another issue causing concerns amongst investors is the £25.2 million pay cheques for the top seven executives of Virgin Media. Virgin Media reported a £15.3 million loss last year.

Buffalo, New York —Two weeks after a 19th century stable and livery on Jersey Street partially collapsed and caused 15 homes to be evacuated in Buffalo, New York, residents still do not have answers from the city despite a court order to work with them and come to an agreement on a way to save some or all of the building, Wikinews has learned. Despite the frustration from residents, the city is planning on suing the building’s owner. A rally was held at the stable’s site where residents are hoping to bring more awareness to the situation and gain more support to save the building.

On June 11, a significant portion of the stable’s right side wall collapsed into the yard of a resident’s home. Authorities, including the Buffalo Fire Department were called to the scene to evaluate the collapse and evacuate 15 homes of residents surrounding the stable as a precautionary measure. The following day, the city ordered an emergency demolition on the building, which was stopped by a restraining order residents with Save The Livery ( won on June 14. Two weeks later, five homes are still evacuated and residents don’t know when they will be able to return.

On June 19, Judge Justice Christopher Burns of the New York State Supreme Court ordered a halt to the emergency demolition and ordered the city and residents to come to an agreement to save the building, or at least a significant portion of it. Despite a court date today, no agreement has yet been reached between the two parties.

“It is in the interest of the city to have a safe environment–but also important to maintain a sense of historical preservation,” stated Burns in his June 19th ruling. The court ruled that a limited demolition could take place and that the city was only allowed to remove material in immediate danger to residents and pedestrians, but stated that the demolition could only be performed with “hand tools.” The court also ordered that any rubble which had fallen into neighboring yards when the building collapsed, to be removed. Since then, most of not all the significantly damaged portions of the building or portions in immediate danger of falling have been demolished. The roof has also been removed to put less stress on the stable’s walls.

“Its been over three years since we have been having problems with part of the livery falling down. There was an implosion two weeks ago and suddenly the city wanted to have an emergency demolition,” said Catherine Herrick who lives on Summer Street immediately behind the stable and is the main plaintiff in the lawsuit against the city. Many homes on Summer are small cottages which were used as servants quarters when the stable was in operation, many of which were built in the 1820’s. At least seven homes on Summer border the stable’s back walls. Residents in those homes have significant gardens which have been planted against the building and growing for decades.

“Both parties are to continue to work together to see how we can meet everybody’s needs. This is the third time we have been in that courtroom, and that is what we were basically told to do,” added Herrick who said the rally was held today because this “is Buffalo’s history. Buffalo is a wonderful place to live because of its history and this is a historical, beautiful building and we need to keep those beautiful buildings.”

Herrick states that the city is working with residents, but also believes that its “slow moving” and they are allowing the owner to get away with neglect on the property.

“I believe right now that they are letting the owner get off. The owner was negligent for 20 years, and hasn’t done anything to it despite what he has claimed to say. Now that this is an emergency situation, the city has a lot to say about it,” added Herrick.

Currently the building is owned by Bob Freudenheim who has several building violations against him because its poor condition. He has received at least five violations in three months and residents who live near the building state that Freudenheim should be “100% responsible” for his actions.

Freudenheim gave the city permission to demolish the building on June 12 during an emergency Preservation Board meeting, because he would not be “rehabilitating the building anytime soon.” Freudenheim, along with his wife Nina, were part-owners of the Hotel Lenox at 140 North Street in Buffalo and were advocates to stop the Elmwood Village Hotel from being built on the Southeast corner of Forest and Elmwood Avenues. They also financially supported a lawsuit in an attempt to stop the hotel from being built. Though it is not known exactly how long Freudenheim has owned the stable, Wikinews has learned that he was the owner while fighting to stop the hotel from being built. Residents say that he has been the owner for at least 22 years. Attorneys for Freudenheim confirm that the city is starting proceedings against him for his violations beginning as early as Wednesday June 25. Freudenheim has not released a statement and could not be reached for comment.

Many residents want the building preserved and Herrick states that their engineer can have it stable in “four days” as opposed to the 14-30 days it would take to demolish the building and “at a lesser cost than what it costs to demolish it.”

It will cost the city nearly US$300,000 to demolish the building which is paid for with tax money collected from residents in the city. The Buffalo News reports that fees are approaching $700,000. Though reports say there is a potential buyer of the stable, Wikinews cannot independently confirm those reports.

Residents say the stable was designed by Richard A. Waite, a 19th century architect, and was first owned by a company called White Bros., used as a stable and housed at least 30 horses at any given time. It also stored “coaches, coupes, broughams, Victorias and everything in the line of light livery,” stated an article from the West Side Topics dated 1906. According to the article, The company first opened in 1881 on Thirteenth Street, now Normal Avenue, and later moved into the Jersey building in 1892. The Buffalo Fire Department believes the building was built around 1814, while the city property database states it was built in 1870. It is believed to be only one of three stables of this kind still standing in the country.

At about 1950, the stable was converted into an automobile body shop and gasoline station.A property record search showed that in 1950 at least four fuel storage tanks were installed on the property. Two are listed as 550 square feet while the other two are 2,000 square feet. All of the tanks are designated as a TK4, which New York State says is used for “below ground horizontal bulk fuel storage.” The cost of installing a tank of that nature according to the state, at that time, included the tank itself, “excavation and backfill,” but did not include “the piping, ballast, or hold-down slab orring.” It is not known if the tanks are still on the property, but residents are concerned the city was not taking the precautions to find out.

Wikinews has called the city along with the Mayor’s office several times, but both have yet to return our calls. There are conflicting reports as to the date of the next hearing. According to Herrick, the next hearing is July 1, 2008 though the Buffalo News states the next hearing is July 8. The News also states that Burns will make a final ruling on the stable at this time.

A two-year-old girl was found dead inside a car yesterday in Union Township, Clermont County, Ohio

The car was parked outside the Glen Este Middle School with all windows rolled up. High temperatures in the area reached 100ºF (~38ºC). Police said that the girl had been inside the car for hours before her death.

A friend of the family said the child was Cecelia Slaby, however police are not reporting any personal information.

The car was registered to the school’s vice principal, Brenda Nesselroad-Slaby. The school staff had to report to work to prepare for the start of school next week.

The family friend that identified the girl also told News 5 in Cincinnati that Nesselroad-Slaby was scheduled to attend a 7 a.m. meeting, but decided that was too early in the day to drop off Cecelia, so she ran several errands instead. The source said Cecelia likely fell asleep in the car and Nesselroad forgot about her when she did go to the school, as she usually does not care for the child in the morning. However, police have not released any specific details. The family friend described Nesselroad as “mother of the year.”

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration says the temperature inside a closed vehicle setting in sunlight can raise nearly 20 Fahrenheit degrees (11 Celsius degrees) in just three minutes. Another three or four minutes, and the administration says a car’s temperature can reach 125ºF (~52ºC). Heatstrokes occur when the body reaches a temperature of 104ºF (40ºC).

No charges have been filed. An autopsy has been scheduled.

Early media reports today indicate experts are predicting a massive blizzard to hit the northeastern United States late this evening. Such storms, coloquially called “Nor’easters”, often wreak havoc across cities and smaller towns. The storm itself may ultimately stretch across 22 states, potentially effecting about one-third of the country’s population.

The city of New York came under a winter storm warning late yesterday evening, with nine inches of snow predicted to fall. Sources also indicate Long Island may experience wind chills as severe as 10 below zero Fahrenheit (about 23 below zero Celsius). Boston schools were reportedly closed for tomorrow, though the press secretary for Boston’s mayor had earlier, regarding braving cold weather, described New Englanders as “hardy”.

By 2pm today Chicago O’Hare airport had experienced 592 flight cancellations. Many homeless shelters across the Northeast region are expected to be filled to capacity or beyond. Weather officials have speculated that next week, parts of Wisconsin could experience the coldest temperatures in nearly seventeen years, since February 1996.
