News OCR Text: Hartzell introduces Top Prop conversion for Piper Seminole

Hartzell Propeller Inc. has received an FAA Supplemental Type Certificate (STC) for a 2-bladed propeller conversion kit for all normally aspirated PA-44-180 Piper Seminoles.

The conversion kit provides Piper Seminoles with improved performance, appearance, and decreased noise signatures, according to company officials.

The new Hartzell Top Prop kit features 74-inch diameter 2-blade aluminum compact hubs with “blended” airfoil Scimitar-shaped aluminum alloy blades that offer an improved takeoff and climb performance (+80 fpm at 2,500 msl), company officials said. The swept-tip Scimitar blades result in reduced noise of .9 dB(a); 84.2 dB(a) measured per Federal Aviation Regulations (FAR) Part 36 Appendix G as well as the ICAO Annex 16, Chapter 10 noise standards. Performance margins are improved, with a 50 fpm increase in single engine climb as well as a 60 fpm increase in balked landing climb with the gear and flaps down.

Hartzell developed the new Top Prop STC in cooperation with the Kent State University Aeronautics Program. Kent State, of Kent, Ohio, operates 24 aircraft in its training fleet. For multi-engine training, they use Piper Seminoles recently re-equipped with new Hartzell Scimitars.

Available directly from Hartzell or through Hartzell's Top Prop dealers, the 2012 list price for these kits, which include new highly polished aluminum spinners, is $22,600. The new propeller carries the exclusive Hartzell Plus3 warranty, which delivers three years or 1,000 hours of coverage, and have a six-year/2,400 hour TBO.

News OCR Text: Aurora -- Members of the Church in Aurora worked with a Kent State University student to bring a health-conscious and successful farmers market to the church's lawn in late summer 2011.

And it has been determined that the venture will operate again this year probably at the same location.

Aurora enterpreneur-in-residence Jack Burge, who also is a KSU professor and member of the church, said he had been working to start a farmers market in Aurora since early 2011, but faced issues with securing a venue.

Ken and Mary Ellen Liang brought their idea for a health-food-conscious farmers market to the community outreach committee at the church and contacted Burge.

The event took place for seven Wednesdays in the church's backyard.

After the market sessioins ended, leaders at the Church in Aurora decided that it will return this summer with different dates.

"We want to open it July 11 and end the third week in September, said Kent State University student Matt Johnson, who was charge of running the market.

News OCR Text: According to an article that appears on the Kent State University website, "Steve Toepfer, associate professor in Human Development and Family Studies at Kent State University at Salem, says he has always been interested in the power of writing. In 2007, he created an assignment in his Building Family Strength class intended to show his students that being kind to others has psychological benefits. He decided to measure these benefits in a pilot study where participants wrote letters of gratitude to determine if there are benefits in terms of well-being for the authors of the letters."

His research shows shows writing letters of gratitude increases happiness and life satisfaction, decreases depressive symptoms.

Toepfer is quoted as saying, “The letter writers were instructed to write a letter of gratitude to anyone they wanted, however, the letter couldn't be trivial and it couldn't be a ‘thank you' note for a gift or ‘thanks for saying hello to me this morning.' The participants had to write about something that was important to them."

“As they wrote, up to three letters, results showed increasing benefits,” Toepfer continued. “The more letter writing people did, the more they improved significantly on happiness and life satisfaction. The new and potentially important finding is that depressive symptoms decreased. By writing these letters – 15 to 20 minutes each, once a week for three weeks to different people – well-being increased significantly.”

For the group that did not write letters but filled out the questionnaires, their well-being did not change.

“What we come away from this study is that if you are looking to increase your well-being through intentional activities, take 15 minutes three times over three weeks and write letters of gratitude to someone,” Toepfer said. “You'll feel better on those three variables. There is a cumulative effect, too. If you write over time, you'll feel happier, you'll feel more satisfied, and if you're suffering from depressive symptoms, your symptoms will decrease.”

Toepfer said people have a store of gratitude that they carry with them all the time, and by simply using it, they can improve their well-being in significant ways.

“We have this powerful resource we're carrying with us, but we need to tap into it in order to let it work for us,” he said.

Data analysis continues as the project also examined the influence of writing letters of gratitude on family characteristics. Preliminary results indicate that writing such letters improves perceived family bonds and decreases perceived criticism from the family in the author.

News OCR Text: Fossil Hermit Crab named after Michael Jackson

On Thursday June 25th 2009, an international team of paleontologists did a great discovery in northern Spain. Not only did they find a new species of hermit crab, but it also appeared to represent a new genus, and even a new family was erected after careful study. Even more impressive was the day of the spectacular find. The paleontologists learned the same evening in a local restaurant in the city of Alsasua that the ‘King of Pop’ had passed away that day. Thus, they decided to honor Michael Jackson by naming the new species after him: Mesoparapylocheles michaeljacksoni.

“We discovered the shield of the new hermit crab in an abandoned limestone quarry in the foothills of the Pyrenees in the Spanish province Navarra,” explains co-author Adiël Klompmaker, a PhD-candidate in the Geology Department of Kent State University. “These rocks in the Koskobilo quarry are part of a fossil coral reef with an age of 100 million years. This is right in the middle of the Cretaceous period, when dinosaurs were dominating the continents. In this area in northern Spain, we find many invertebrate fossils such as corals, algae, sea urchins, but also a wide variety of crabs. ”

Mesoparapylocheles michaeljacksoni has one living relative from the same family. Parapylocheles scorpio lives in deep waters of the Indian and Pacific Oceans. “However, the new hermit crab lived in the shallow waters of a coral reef hidden in between the branching corals,” tells lead author and director of the Dutch Oertijdmuseum René Fraaije. Still undiscovered species of the same family must, thus, have migrated to deeper waters at some point in time.

Nowadays, hermit crabs predominantly use a snail shell as a shelter when the shell comes available after the death of the snail. When the extinct ammonites were still around in the Cretaceous, they would also use their shell sometimes. Klompmaker: “We are not sure what the fossil hermit crabs from Spain used as a protection, because snail and ammonite shells are extremely rare in the quarry. They may have relied on the additional protection provided by the branching corals, as hermit crabs are rare in rocks from the same quarry that contain few corals.”

Fossil shields of hermit crabs are much rarer than those of true crabs (Brachyura), which are a separate group within the decapod crustaceans. Today, less than a dozen of these shields are known and much concerning the evolution of this group still remains undiscovered.

The Oertijdmuseum Boxtel is one of the leading institutes in the world studying fossil decapod crustaceans such as crabs, lobsters, shrimp, and hermit crabs.

The scientific publication on the new species and yet another new species and genus is just published online: Fraaije, R.H.B., A.A. Klompmaker, & P. Artal. 2012. New species, genera and a family of hermit crabs (Crustacea, Anomura, Paguroidea) from a mid-Cretaceous reef of Navarra, northern Spain. Neues Jahrbuch für Geologie und Paläontologie Abhandlungen 263: 85-92. http://www.ingentaconnect.com/content/schweiz/njbgeol/2012/00000263/00000001/art00010

Park Commissioner Jackie Mills said ideas include having a walkthrough garden behind the tennis courts on the east side of the park. The garden would allow people to walk though it on both sides

"We have discussed new additions to the park, and a garden has been one idea,'' she said.

Mills said residents will have the opportunity to plant native Ohio plants in the garden.

"We want the garden to be an educational place and the public to help us sustain it,'' Mills said noting the Trumbull Master Gardeners and scout groups could also help.

Park Commissioner Jim Brutz will contact the Ohio Department of Natural Resources. Kent State University and Ohio Parks Board to see what financial assistance and grants may be available to help with a garden and gazebo.

Park Commissioner Nick Spano plans to see what costs will be involved and will have designs and specifications prepared for the gazebo and garden.

Mills said the commissioners have also heard of possible donors offering money for a garden and gazebo.

Brutz said a timeline is to get the process started this spring with construction in the summer and planting in the fall.

The next park meeting is at 4:15 p.m. Thursday at the Rotary Building in the park.
