Depew School District using temperature wrist scanners to start new school year

The Depew Union Free School District has spent about $30,000 on new technology to detect whether anyone has a temperature.

DEPEW, N.Y. — Some local schools are already back in the classroom – others will return next week, and at one local district new technology is being used that’s intended to keep everyone safe.

The Depew Union Free School District will start the new year with Wrist temperature scanners at all their entrances. The wrist temperature scanners give you a reading in just five seconds.

“Every student, every employee has to pass by those scanners to get their temperature checked before they come in,” said Jeffrey Rabey, the Depew Schools superintendent. 

This on top of health screenings that should be done at home.

The district purchased 10 standing temperature scanners at a cost of nearly $30,000 using CARES Act funding, but according to the district superintendent, the manufacturer is backed

If Arctic ice melt doesn’t boost sea levels, do we care?

US government scientists reported Monday that the Arctic Ocean’s floating ice cover has shrivelled to its second lowest extent since satellite records began in 1979.

Until this month, only once in the last 42 years has Earth’s frozen skull cap covered less than four million square kilometres (1.5 million square miles).

The trend line is clear: sea ice extent has diminished 14 percent per decade over that period. The Arctic could see it’s first ice-free summer as early as 2035, researchers reported in Nature Climate Change last month.

But all that melting ice and snow does not directly boost sea levels any more than melted ice cubes make a glass of water overflow, which gives rise to an awkward question: who cares?

Granted, it’s a red flag. 

“The decline in Arctic sea ice in summer is one of the clearest, most unequivocal signs of climate change,” said Julien Nicolas, an

5 takeaways from Georgia Tech’s loss to Syracuse

ExploreMichael Cunningham: Tech took a step back at Syracuse

There were times when Tech did its job well. After the Jackets fell behind 30-20 late in the third quarter, the defense came up with consecutive three-and-outs to give the offense opportunities before quarterback Jeff Sims’ interception that was returned for a touchdown iced the game. But big plays, along with disadvantageous field position created by turnovers and ineffective kickoff coverage, expedited the defeat.

“I’d say, honestly, that’s not us,” said cornerback Zamari Walton, who had his first career interception and also had a deep-ball pass breakup in one of the aforementioned three-and-outs. “We could have played better. We had a downfall (Saturday), but I promise you, we’ll be back, and we’ll have it together.”

In his long-awaited but unexpected debut after being left off the “Above the Line” chart, defensive end Antonneous Clayton was effective in spurts pushing back

In Brazil’s Amazon a COVID-19 resurgence dashes herd immunity hopes

BRASILIA (Reuters) – The largest city in Brazil’s Amazon has closed bars and river beaches to contain a fresh surge of coronavirus cases, a trend that may dash theories that Manaus was one of the world’s first places to reach collective, or herd, immunity.

When a large portion of a community becomes immune to a disease, its spread becomes unlikely.

University of Sao Paulo researchers suggested that a drastic fall in COVID-19 deaths in Manaus pointed to collective immunity at work, but they also believe that antibodies to the disease after infection may not last more than a few months.

Local authorities on Friday enforced a 30-day ban on parties and other

5 things to think about before buying LED bulbs

smart-bulb-promo

Before you head to the store, learn about the specs to look out for when buying LED bulbs.


Chris Monroe/CNET

If you haven’t switched to LED bulbs, now is the time. The reasons why are compelling. For starters, LED bulbs last much longer than incandescent bulbs, and they put out the same amount of light using significantly less energy. That’s great for the environment, and it can save you lots of money in the long-term on your electricity bill. 

If you’re smart home-inclined, LEDs open the door to all sorts of interesting and worthwhile features, including bulbs that change colors and bulbs that sync with your security system or voice assistant of choice. Besides, many incandescent bulbs — including the 100-watt incandescent — are being phased out, so you’ll need to make the switch eventually, anyway.
