Fisk, armed with a mere twenty-five dollars, began what is now an industry leading electrical, structured cabling and building technologies integrator that offers a single-source for design, installation and continuous maintenance of integrated building technology solutions. We owe our culture for quality and our current success to a near century of hard work and entrepreneurial spirit — all beginning with a man working out of his father’s shed. Electricity arrived in the city of Houston in in the form of one 1. That is enough to power about 75 typical homes today. Each day John would carry a roll of wire, his ladder and cutters on a streetcar to install power wiring in houses and buildings that were previously illuminated by natural gas. As more uses for electricity developed such as fans, elevators, pumps, and appliances, the business grew.

Australian oil rig first in the world to be powered by batteries
In addition to a five-year moratorium already in place in the Atlantic, removing the canyons from drilling puts much of the eastern seaboard off limits to oil exploration even if companies develop plans to operate around them. Neither measure affects leases already held by oil and gas companies and drilling activity in state waters. White House officials described their actions to make the areas off limits to future oil and gas exploration and drilling as indefinite.

Life on the road, eating out every night and of course, who can complain about the pay cheques!! Wow it all sounds wonderful doesn’t it? Rig life does have huge benefits but it also has its down sides. Just like any job on the road, life on an oil rig, can make relationships difficult. Wives are left at home while men are out working.
This can put an awful lot of strain on a marriage. For some couples this type of lifestyle is easy, but for others it can be unbearable. I know alot of the advice that is given to people that work away on an oil rig is to just quit. People will tell you the money is not worth the hardship it is causing in your marriage. Can you just quit rig life? Maybe you are finacially stable enough to just give up working on the rigs and go home to your family.
Then again, maybe you are just an average family trying to keep food on the table, roof over your head and bills paid. If so oil rig life might be all you have right now. So how do you make relationships work if you are working on the rigs?
Rig Counts – Drilling (DR) – by Month
When Joe Forsythe returned to the West Texas oilfields last year after a stint in a drug rehab facility, he thought he had beaten his addiction to methamphetamine. The year-old rig worker and equipment handler lasted about a year before relapsing. I was just plagued with fatigue and needed something to improve my work ethic. Drug use is a significant factor in workplace injuries and crimes involving oilfield workers, according to drug counsellors, hospital and police officials and court records in West Texas, the epicenter of US shale.
As the shale revolution has spawned waves of hiring since , law enforcement authorities have tracked a boom in drug trafficking and related crime.

Could not subscribe, try again laterInvalid Email A 17, tonne oil rig has been swept ashore after being hit by severe weather and heavy winds in the Western Isles. Police rushed to cordon off the popular surf beach in Dalmore, Scotland, after fumes could be smelt coming from The Transocean Winner rig early this morning.
HM Coastguard confirmed the rig is currently holding metric tonnes of diesel. As the waves continue to crash into the rig off Isle of the Lewis there is a serious risk it could be damaged and pollute the sea.
I’ve never understood why, as surely in normal use the system should heat up, pressurise to something less than the cap pressure, then simply cool down and depressurise back to zero.
ScoMo’s business tax plan Treasurer Scott Morrison wants to follow America’s lead and extend lower corporate tax rates to all businesses. The ‘corporate watchdog’ has been everywhere in the last 12 months, but what do they actually do? Mr Maxted was trying to trade the bills to his client, wealth management powerhouse AMP from both Mr Howarth and another colleague David Page who at the time did not have the bills.
Related Articles Cultural accountability is not a choice ASIC alleges telephone, email and chat room transcripts lay bare the trade where Mr Howarth delayed the release of the bills to Mr Maxted until after the rate had been set. They’re abusing the balance sheet, they’re abusing the market, they’re abusing customers,” Mr Page told Mr Maxted on September 9 after discovering Mr Maxted’s client had been allegedly affected by Mr Howarth’s actions.

Head Gasket Towards the end of Bee didn’t seem to be pulling so well, and sounded a bit rough backing into the garage. Checking the carbs the rear was OK on the lifting pin but the front didn’t give the usual response. Checking the plugs the front pair looked a bit weak, so richened going for max idle when turning the nut, but the lifting pin still didn’t do much. I’d deliberately left the Bosch 4-point plugs in well over 10k just to see what happened, no mechanical wear, but decided the experiment had gone on long enough so fitted a new set of NGKs.
Running noticeably better, some response from the front lifting-pin, but still not as good as the rear. Did a compression test, and No.
Drug-taking soars as meth helps oil workers cash in on boom
Dear Fellow Members, I hesitate to do this my hard drive is only 1gb , but I’m going to solicit advice from the collected Willys “brain trust” on this site. I finally got my 58 cj3b purchased three months ago home this past weekend. I know, I know I should be disbarred from the Willys club for waiting so long, but its a long story so don’t ask. The body is solid and straight, no cancer, very little surface rust and even has a solid tool box.
It has all it’s parts and pieces to include the original drive train and the remains of three-point hitch it had during its farm days. Only things missing are the side-view mirror and a spare tire mount.

David Reynolds poses with his Guinness World Records certificate, which officially recognises his creation as the world’s biggest matchstick model His creation has now been officially recognised by Guinness World Records as the world’s biggest matchstick model – with 4, , million individual matchsticks. The previous biggest was a recreation of the Titanic using 3. Mr Reynolds, who lives with his wife Julie, 49, in Southampton, described the remarkable model as a hobby which ‘got out of hand’.
I suppose I got quite complacent about it. The former engineer, who worked on temporary oil rigs in the s, has recreated the platform, which he has dubbed the Cathedrals of the Sea, in painstaking detail. His model includes the accommodation block for rig workers, the flotilla of ships moored to the rig, the platforms and towers. He spent between two and ten hours a day dabbling with the model – a total of 32, hours over the 15 year labour of love.
The model became so big it had to be split into 14 different sections and housed in various rooms throughout his home. It was finally assembled into one piece at the Bursledon Brickworks Museum in Southampton in March this year.
