The top five coal producer rankings remained largely the same from 2017 to 2018, except that Murray Energy Corp., which primarily mines coal in the Northern Appalachia and Illinois basins, overtook Cloud Peak in terms of coal production volume.Murray Energy, like many of the largest coal producers, reported relatively flat production from the mines it owned in 2018 compared to the same mines’ output in 2017. Murray Energy declined to comment about its production levels or future production plans.Coal production at Cloud Peak mines declined by 14.0% from 2017 to 2018. The company has struggled with operational issues at its Antelope mine and recently warned that it was considering Chapter 11 bankruptcy reorganization.Peabody Energy Corp., the largest coal producer in the U.S., mined about one-fifth of the coal produced in 2018. The company’s U.S. production of 155.5 million tons was down about 2.1% compared to the prior year and may go even lower in 2019 under Peabody’s plan to reduce volumes from North Antelope Rochelle, its flagship Powder River Basin mine, by about 10 million tons.More ($): Top 5 miners produced over half of U.S. coal in 2018; Cloud Peak’s ranking slips Five companies mined 53% of U.S. coal production in 2018—S&Plast_img read more

Top 10 Tick Facts

Posted on by

first_imgIf you’ve paid attention to the news in recent months, you probably know what we are currently in the midst of what most experts would call a banner tick season. Because these blood sucking parasites are well-known carriers of lyme and other disease causing pathogens, it’s important for every outdoor enthusiast to arm themselves with knowledge about how to avoid and cope with tick encounters in the wild.Reference this handy tick fact sheet next time you set out into the great outdoors. 1. Ticks crawl up. Ticks don’t jump, fly, or drop from trees onto your head and back. If you find one attached there, it most likely latched onto your foot or leg and crawled up over your entire body.2. All ticks (including deer ticks) come in small, medium and large sizes3. Ticks can be active even in the winter. Deer Ticks in particular are not killed by freezing temperatures, and will be active any winter day that the ground is not snow-covered or frozen.4. Ticks carry disease-causing microbes: Tick-transmitted infections are more common now than in past decades. With increases in deer populations, extending even into semi-urban areas in the eastern and western U.S., the trend is for increasing abundance and geographic spread of deer ticks and Lone Star ticks; and scientists are finding an ever-increasing list of disease-causing microbes transmitted by these ticks (Lyme disease bacteria, Babesia protozoa, Anaplasma, Ehrlichia, and other rickettsia, even encephalitis-causing viruses, and possibly Bartonella bacteria).5. The only way to get Lyme disease is by being bitten by a deer tick or one of its “cousins” found around the world.6. For most tick-borne diseases, you have 24 hours to find and remove a feeding tick before it transmits an infection. Even a quick daily tick check at bath or shower time can be helpful in finding and removing attached ticks before they can transmit an infection. Lyme disease bacteria take at least 24 hours to invade the tick’s saliva.7. Deer tick nymphs look like a poppy seed on your skin. And with about one-in-four nymphal deer ticks carrying the Lyme disease spirochete and other germs in the northeastern, mid-Atlantic, and upper mid-western U.S., it’s important to know what you’re really looking for. They’re easy to miss, their bites are generally painless, and they have a habit of climbing up (under clothing) and biting in hard-to-see places.8. The easiest and safest way to remove a tick is with a pointy tweezer. Using really pointy tweezers, it’s possible to grab even the poppy-seed sized nymphs right down next to the skin. The next step is to simply pull the tick out like a splinter.9. Clothing with built-in tick repellent is great for preventing tick bites. An easy way to avoid tick bites and disease is to wear clothing (shoes, socks, shorts or pants, and shirt) with Insect Shield tick repellent built-in.10. There’s really only one way you get a tick-transmitted disease, and that’s from a tick bite. Reducing tick abundance in your yard, wearing tick repellent clothing every day, treating pets every month and getting into a habit of doing a quick body scan are all great actions for preventing tick bites.–Tips courtesy of tickencounter.org.last_img read more

Alliant Energy has some tips to reduce energy usage during heat

Posted on by

first_imgMASON CITY — Air conditioners will get a workout the next few days with Excessive Heat Warnings and Heat Advisories out for much of the state.Alliant Energy spokesman Mike Wagner says customers may want to try to plan ahead wisely to avoid sticker shock when their bill comes next month. “If you look at the forecast for the next couple days, the high and the low are really close to each other. In that overnight, your air conditioner is not going to get a break, these machines are to be running in a pretty long cycle here for the next couple days. We think it’s important for customers to recognize that and then also try to look for ways to control their energy use so they will get a big surprise in August when their bills come and they’re surprised at the amount of energy they’re using.”Wagner says you should make sure that your air conditioner has had a tune-up recently. – “A friend of mine was having problems with their air conditioner and found out that it was down to about 20% coolant. They had a service tech come out, clean it, do the service on the machine but also add more coolant, and then the machine was working much more efficiently, it wasn’t running as often and was cooling at a much better rate. There’s other things too like making sure you have a clean filter inside and out. You want to do everything you can to not restrict air flow.”Wagner says there’s other alternatives you can think about to reduce the strain on your air conditioner.  “Use your ceiling fans, use box fans, but I use those to cool you and the people in the room. Think of it kind of like using those fans as creating your own wind chill. I don’t know if I’d necessarily rely on them to circulate air around the house, but to have that cooler air blowing on you helps cool you down, and also allows you to maybe turn the temperature in your thermostat up a couple degrees so that you don’t necessarily need to have your air conditioner working quite so hard.”Wagner says this is not the time to use your oven a lot.  “This is a great time to turn your oven off. Use the stove top if you need to, use a toaster oven, Crock-Pots, instant pots are really popular. I can find an excuse to grill just about anything. You don’t want to turn the oven on. This is not really the time during the heat wave here to start baking a cake or maybe put a pizza in the oven if you don’t need to,  because those are things in your air conditioner has to compete with.” For more energy-saving tips, click herelast_img read more
