    Adjustable height cart

    That’s for warehouse/industrial use. One man man in a warehouse can get a 100’ box off the pallet racks.

    Exploratorium in San Francisco has had an exhibit since I was very young. I remember as a child wondering why there weren’t more cool things like this around. I was always fascinated by echoes. Exploratorium Sound Exhibit

    Where is the Senator?

    I joined partly because of the Senator’s friendly criticism.
  4. Sole salt water I add about 1-2 tablespoons of Sole to my 32oz water bottle when I think ahead. Just enough to make it kinda sweet not salty tasting.

  6. https://www.osac.gov/Pages/ContentReportPDF.aspx?cid=17704 Traveling in hot climates can make you sick, especially if you are not accustomed to the heat. People at highest risk are the elderly, young children, and people with chronic illnesses, but even young and healthy people can get sick from heat if they participate in strenuous physical activities during hot weather. When you are not in an air-conditioned building, take these steps to prevent heat-related illnesses, injuries, and deaths when traveling in hot climates: · Drink plenty of fluids. · Wear loose, lightweight, light-colored clothing and sunscreen. · Try to schedule outdoor activities during cooler parts of the day. · Rest often, and try to stay in the shade when outdoors. · If you will be doing strenuous activities in the heat, try to get adjusted before you leave by exercising one hour per day in the heat. Overheating can result in heat exhaustion or heat stroke. Symptoms include excessive thirst, profuse sweating, headache, dizziness or confusion, and nausea. If you or anyone you are traveling with develops these symptoms, get out of the sun https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dehydration A body water loss of 1-2%, considered mild dehydration, is shown to impair cognitive performance.[4]In people over age 50, the body's thirst sensation diminishes and continues diminishing with age. http://www.system-safety.com/articles/Dehydration.htm Here are some of the most common symptoms or indicators of dehydration. 1.

I don't use the bladder reservoirs often, I have three I have never used. The bladders come free with the packs. I prefer these.

    1. I don't like the idea of Wireless RF in the room. Period. 2. If I found out there was an untrained person in the operating room of a loved one I would not take kindly to the idea. 3. I'm not trying to be gloomy, but after sitting for 3 days listening to internal issues surrounding hospitals, infections and the newest disinfection robots. Even on hospitals best days, stuff can go wrong. 4. Unless you go through all the same disinfection procedures as the surgeons and nurses your opening your self up to liability. Even if you do everything perfectly there is still risk of transmitting infection. 5. Imagine a Tattoo parlor, the tattooist goes through painstaking measures to ensure his tattoo station is disinfected and all his equipment is clean/sterile. ( Maybe ask a tattoo artist about the basics?) a. Clean LAV mics and seal them in ( UA sample jar? It's sanitized.) Ask nurse what a UA sample jar is. Cleaning solution will sterilize mic capsule. b. I say use waterproof cell phone bags for wireless TX that are disinfected/airtight/sealed when you go into the room. c. Ask for additional funds to cover sterile equipment and preparation. d. Think of all the one-time use tools that doctors use during surgery. Then throw away the whole tray. e. Use all new transpore tape, stickies, scissors, batteries, velcro, EVERYTHING. f. Only enter the OR with approved items. -I suggest use a short shotgun, doesn't matter which, as it will only be used for subtitles. -Throw 2 or 3 pocket Zoom recorders around the room in disinfected sealed waterproof bags. Just to CYA. Maybe get Doc to wear one in pocket. ( think police body cam). Dang this sounds like a fun gig. If you want to place a LAV mic on the surgeon, he would have to really be on board and willing to compromise. I doubt you could get him to give up the extra 5-10 minutes to Mic him up properly for surgery. I've yet to meet a doctor that fits that description. They fly to their own clocks ( in a good way).

    Am I the only one that thinks FedEx/UPS with insurance up the wazoo. Just ship that ish straight to the hotel. Have it waiting for you a week in advance. Hikers on the PCT do that. They send food to the stores along the trail. I bet the hotel manager would be more than happy to oblige.
