Kansans drank contaminated water for years and weren’t told
It didn’t test private wells less than a mile away. Nor did it notify residents that their drinking wells could be contaminated with dry cleaning chemicals, known as perchloroethylene, so they could test the water themselves.

“We didn’t find out for 7 years,” said Joe Hufman, whose well was contaminated by a Haysville dry cleaner. “Haysville knew it. KDHE knew it. Kwik Shop knew it.”

It had happened at least once before, at a dry cleaning site near Central and Tyler in Wichita, where the state waited more than four years between discovering contamination nearby and notifying residents of more than 200 homes.

Some fear it could happen again at 22 contaminated sites where the state has not checked for people on well water — or that it could happen at a yet unknown site of contamination.

Kansans aren’t required to use city water if they already have a well, and some Wichita neighborhoods still rely on private well water.

The delays stem from a 1995 state law that places more emphasis on protecting the dry cleaning industry than protecting public health.

aknightley: fit the crown to my head
“What’s the fun in a masquerade if you don’t flirt outrageously with the prettiest person in the room?” the young man says flippantly, and then winks at Keith. Keith huffs a laugh, amused.

“You keep saying things like that, but you haven’t seen my face,” he says, gesturing to his mask. “I could have warts under here. I could have spots, or scars.”

“You’d be lovely even with all of those,” the young man says, and he suddenly sounds serious. It takes Keith by surprise, makes his heart twist along with his stomach. “Your eyes,” he continues, tilting his head. “I’ve never seen eyes like yours before.”

Alphabet’s Loon internet balloons can now fly 600 kilometers apart | VentureBeat
Alphabet’s Loon internet balloons can now fly 600 kilometers apart https://ift.tt/2NCadmY

Alphabet subsidiary Loon has achieved a new milestone: Maintaining an internet connection between seven balloons across a span of nearly 1,000 kilometers.

For context, a single balloon in 2014 was capable of beaming internet to an area 40 kilometers in diameter, and at one point achieving connections between two balloons 100 kilometers apart was noteworthy, Loon head of engineering Salvatore Candido said in a blog post today.

Loon leverages a process called backhaul connection to beam internet to balloons 20 kilometers above the Earth. Predictive algorithms are then used to determine the direction balloons should travel in order to stay connected.

The milestones were surpassed last month in trials that began in Nevada and stretched between seven balloons situated along the border of California and Nevada. Loon also recently achieved its longest-ever connection between two balloons at a distance of 600 kilometers.

Last year, Loon began to use machine learning techniques for its navigation algorithms to maintain connections between clusters of balloons. Clusters of balloons allow for Loon to deploy internet faster and cover a larger region.

“Instead of one balloon utilizing one ground-based connection point to serve users, we can use that same terrestrial access point to activate a network of multiple balloons, all of which can connect people below,” Candido said. “In this way, we create a web of connectivity to serve users without having to build lots of new infrastructure on the ground, which is a significant obstacle to bringing traditional access to unconnected and under-connected communities around the world.”

Project Loon was introduced in June 2013, when the idea was to use high-altitude balloons riding wind currents to beam internet to people in parts of the world that lack connectivity. In July, the Alphabet experimental moonshot X division became a standalone company known just as Loon, alongside drone delivery service Wing.

Shortly after becoming a company, Loon announced the closure of its first commercial deal in Africa with Telkom Kenya to begin providing internet access in 2019.

By contrast, Facebook, which began its Aquila project to beam internet to remote parts of the world using a giant drone, was shut down in July.

Scowling even as he accepted defeat, Bellamy slung his rifle over his shoulder. “If anything comes through those gates that shouldn’t, I’m holding both of you personally responsible. Especially you, Chancellor Junior.”

“That’s fair,” Wells said amiably as he took up the sentry position Bellamy had just vacated. “If I get us all killed, you’re well within your rights to kill me for letting it happen.”

Clarke and Bellamy automatically exchanged a Can you believe this guy? eye roll, then hastily glanced away from each other.

Wells had noticed the whole thing and was grinning rather knowingly. “Why don’t you two go back to bed? And if you finally decide to get it out of your systems, try to keep it down; the kids are sleeping.”

[ In which Wells Jaha is a shameless matchmaker, but also the world's best third wheel. ]
