Restore Hetch Hetchy today announced that world champion rock climber and author Hans Florine, who holds or shares several world records for climbing the 'nose’ of El Capitan in Yosemite Valley, will keynote its 9th annual fundraising dinner on Saturday, March 11th. Restore Hetch Hetchy will also present the John Muir Heritage Award to founding board members Mark Cederborg and Mark Palley. “I am excited to share some of my experiences with supporters of the restoration of the Hetch Hetchy Valley,” said Florine. “To me, Yosemite Valley is the Mecca – the center of the climbing universe - and yet Yosemite’s Hetch Hetchy Valley is all but unknown due to the limited access to its walls. We are missing out on the sister of the greatest climbing area in the world." The dinner, which celebrates Restore Hetch Hetchy’s plans for returning Hetch Hetchy Valley to Yosemite National Park, will be held at the historic Berkeley City Club, a stunning venue designed by famed architect Julia Morgan, who also designed Hearst Castle. “We are honored that Hans is joining us at our annual dinner. The climbing community has been a long time supporter of our efforts. Climbers know the tremendous opportunities restoration of the valley offers not only to their community, but also to hikers, picnickers … and non-climbing visitors who simply want to stand waist-deep in grass and flowers ‘while the great pines sway dreamily’ as John Muir once did,” said Restore Hetch Hetchy Executive Director Spreck Rosekrans. “We are also proud to honor Mark Cederborg and Mark Palley who, over the years, have been instrumental to advancing our mission of restoring Hetch Hetchy and making Yosemite whole once again.” Hans Florine is a speed climber, professional speaker, author and thought leader in speed and efficiency. Florine has repeatedly set and broken one of the most coveted speed records in the world: The Nose of El Capitan, a 2,900-foot monolith in Yosemite Valley. In 2012, Hans, alongside climbing partner Alex Honnold, took the record again in 2 hours and 23 minutes, lowering the previous record by a full 13 minutes. He also holds numerous speed records in Yosemite National Park and all over the globe. Hans won the first International Speed Climbing Championships in 1991 and has held the U.S. National title eleven times. He won gold at the ESPN X-Games three years in a row. As a speaker, Hans challenges audiences to rethink what “speed” really means and is the author of “Speed is Power,” an audio program full of ideas, examples, and tools to utilize the fundamentals of speed in business and life. Hans is also the co-author of “Speed Climbing,” now in its second edition and producer of the award-winning documentary, “Wall Rats.” Hans is an athlete/ambassador for Outdoor Research, KineSYS, Honey Stinger, NUUN Hydration, Blue Water Ropes, La Sportiva, Petal and DFX Sports. He is an ambassador for The Access Fund, an active member of The American Alpine Club and supporting member of the Yosemite Fund, Leave No Trace and South Yuba River Citizens League (SYRCL). Mark Cederborg, currently serving as Vice Chair of Restore Hetch Hetchy, is a Restoration Specialist, Manager and Principal at Hanford ARC. Mark’s experience in habitat restoration has guided and inspired Restore Hetch Hetchy since its inception. Mark authored the Dam Removal and Valley Restoration chapters of “Finding the Way back to Hetch Hetchy Valley” (Restore Hetch Hetchy, 2005). Mark Palley, currently serving as Secretary of Restore Hetch Hetchy, is a civil litigation attorney and a founding partner of an Oakland law firm called Marion's Inn. Mark’s legal expertise has served Restore Hetch Hetchy throughout the life of the organization – from drafting our bylaws to advising our legal campaign in the California courts. The 7th annual Restore Hetch Hetchy Dinner will take place on March 11 at the Berkeley City Club, 2315 Durant Avenue, Berkeley, CA. Reception begins at 6:00 pm, followed by dinner at 7:00 pm. For information on purchasing tickets, contact Julene Freitas: julene(at)hetchhetchy(dot)org / 510-893-3400 and for more information on Restore Hetch Hetchy, go to: http://www.hetchhetchy.org/ INTERVIEWS: We will gladly arrange interviews with Restore Hetch Hetchy Executive Director Spreck Rosekrans. ABOUT RESTORE HETCH HETCHY: The mission of Restore Hetch Hetchy is to return the Hetch Hetchy Valley in Yosemite National Park to its natural splendor while continuing to meet the water and power needs of all communities that depend on the Tuolumne River. Restore Hetch Hetchy is presently engaged in litigation with the City and County of San Francisco, arguing that storing water in an iconic glacier carved valley violates the California Constitution’s mandate that all methods of diversion be reasonable. Restore Hetch Hetchy intends to show the court that not one drop of water supply need be lost in restoration.

The European Sport and Recreation Building Stock accounts for approximately 1,5 Million buildings or 8% of the overall building stock. These facilities are unique by their physical nature, their energy consumption profiles, the usage patterns of people inside, ownership, and comfort requirements. SPORTE2 aims to manage and optimize the triple dimensions of energy flows (generation, grid exchange, and consumption) in Sport and Recreation Buildings by developing a new scalable and modular BMS based on smart metering, integrated control, optimal decision making, and multi-facility management. This tool will enable a new relationship and business model structure between facility managers and power providers. The SPORTE2 modules will be applicable to both new and existing structures and answer the fundamental questions of how, where, when and why energy is produced, used and grid exchanged. The approach will target a reduction of energy consumption by up 30%, with commensurate CO2 reductions and cost savings. The project will make use of a full scale building laboratory environment (Kubik) for system integration and testing. The project will then implement the SPORTE2 modules in three full-scale pilots representative of the sector (e.g. swimming pools, indoor and outdoor courts, gyms, etc) and able to implement the smart grid concept through the availability of RET and cogeneration devices. Strong linkages to sport associations and green building design are present in the consortium to enable exploitation of project results.

Arthroscopy Techniques | Year: 2012

Core decompression is a joint-preserving surgery feasible in early-stage avascular necrosis of the femoral head. An arthroscopically/endoscopically aided development of this procedure is presented to overcome some drawbacks of the standard technique. Conventional imaging may underestimate the articular damage; thus a preliminary hip arthroscopy helps to identify those patients with significant joint damage, who might not benefit from the procedure. The standard fluoroscopically guided core decompression does not allow precise targeting or reliable debridement of the lesion. Tunnel endoscopy helps the surgeon to aim precisely at the lesion and to debride it thoroughly, with accurate visual verification. In conclusion, the arthroscopic-endoscopic assistance may lead to more accurate patient selection, more precise targeting, and more complete debridement, with no apparent disadvantages. © 2012 Arthroscopy Association of North America.

Analytical Chemistry | Year: 2010

Bifunctional hydroxyl/thiol-functionalized fourth-generation polyamidoamine dendrimer (G4-PAMAM)-encapsulated Au nanoparticle (NP) was synthesized and immobilized on a mixed self-assembled monolayer (SAM)-modified gold surface. This modified surface was resistant to nonspecific adsorption of proteins having a wide range of molecular weight and isoelectric points. Part of the dendrimer thiol groups were converted to hydrazide functionalities providing an activated surface available to subsequently immobilize the receptor for developing a sensor surface to immunoaffinity reaction. Herein, the surface plasmon resonance (SPR) detection of insulin was obtained by means of a competitive immunoassay principle. The resulting Au NP dendrimer-modified surface provided an assay with high stability, significantly enhanced sensitivity, and a detection limit for analyzing insulin of 0.5 pM. The SPR detection of insulin was amplified due to the changes in the dielectric properties of the matrixes, occurring upon the biorecognition processes on the sensor surface, through the coupling of the localized plasmon of the NPs with the surface plasmon wave. The developed sensor chip was used to analyze insulin in human serum samples from healthy and diabetic patients. The results showed good correlation to the reference method. The specificity and the improved sensitivity of this biosensing platform could have significant implications for the detection of a wide range of molecules and biomarkers in complex biological media. © 2010 American Chemical Society.
