FDA Drug Recall:
Endo Pharmaceuticals Issues Voluntary Nationwide Recall for Two Lots of Robaxin(R)

Lewis County BOCC News Release:
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Oct. 1, 2018
CHEHALIS – More than two years after the Chamber Way overpass was damaged by an oversized load, the new bridge structure above Interstate 5 in Chehalis is complete and work to finish the roadway connections is gearing up.
Beginning Monday, Oct. 15, contractor crews working for the Washington State Department of Transportation will close Chamber Way between the I-5 ramps. The closure will last for up to 60 hours and will allow crews to complete all grading and paving work to tie in the new bridge with the final roadway alignment. Following the closure, the new Chamber Way overpass will reopen to traffic, providing a wider structure with improved sidewalk facilities and a higher vertical clearance.
“The extended closure of Chamber Way eliminates three weeks of staged construction, significantly reducing overall traffic impacts prior to the start of the holiday season,” said WSDOT project engineer Susan Fell. “We understand that the closure will affect all users of this well-traveled overpass and we are doing our best to minimize impacts to the community and traveling public.”
In addition to avoiding several weeks of staged construction, consolidating the work into a 60-hour extended closure also increases the odds that weather-dependent work such as paving can be completed this season.
Signed detours will guide travelers through the area during the closure. People who use the sidewalk will be able to cross I-5 using the new bridge during the closure.
Closure and detour information:
• Monday, Oct. 15 to the morning of Thursday, Oct. 18: Chamber Way will close between the I-5 ramps from 7 p.m. Oct. 15 to 7 a.m. Oct. 18.
• Monday, Oct. 15 to the morning of Tuesday, Oct. 16: The northbound I-5 off-ramp to Chamber Way will close from 10 p.m. to 5 a.m. nightly for paving.
• Wednesday, Oct. 17 to the morning of Thursday, October 18: The northbound I-5 off-ramp to Chamber Way will close from 10 p.m. to 5 a.m. nightly for paving.
The final paving work is weather dependent and the closure dates may change based on the weather forecast.
Before heading out the door, drivers can get up-to-date traffic information with the WSDOT mobile app, and the WSDOT Travel Alerts page.

David Thompson started Food is Free Project Tacoma to help feed his neighbors. Instead of dumping what he can’t eat, he gives it away. What if all of us just did one thing to help the environment and our community? We can't do everything, but we can all do something. GOOD JOB DAVID!

Thank you parents and staff for sending boxtops and dimes in. Every little bit helps our school.
Ethan Siegel writes on Starts With A Bang:
“It has often been noted, such as by the AAUW, that one of the barriers to accepting women in STEM as normal is a lack of representation at the highest levels. In selecting Donna Strickland as a Nobel Laureate, in the same year that Jocelyn Bell-Burnell was awarded the $3M Breakthrough Prize, we’re stepping closer to a world where women can expect to receive equal treatment and equal respect to men in the scientific workplace.
The preamplifiers of the National Ignition Facility are the first step in increasing the energy of laser beams as they make their way toward the target chamber. NIF recently achieved a 500 terawatt shot - 1,000 times more power than the United States uses at any instant in time.
Whether your research will win you the Nobel Prize — or even will be successful — is often largely a matter of luck. But rewarding those who do good work, get lucky in how nature responds, and leads to the development of technological applications that serve humanity is what the Nobel is all about. This year, there can be no doubt the selection committee got it right. Let’s all celebrate Ashkin, Mourou, and Strickland as your 2018 Nobel Laureates in Physics!”
The 2018 Nobel Prize in Physics goes to Arthur Ashkin, Gerard Mourou, and Donna Strickland, for advances in the field of laser physics. Ashkin wins half the prize for his work developing the optical tweezers technique, while Mourou and Strickland share the other half for the development of chirped pulse amplification, which creates high-power, short-period pulses of lasers. Both of these inventions have proven their worth scientifically and practically, leading to a wide variety of applications. But there’s so much more to the story than that, and the fact that this is just the third physics Nobel ever to include a woman cannot be overlooked.
Come learn all about the science and societal impacts underlying the 2018 Nobel Prize in Physics!

Toledo School District reminder:
Friday is Teacher Inservice Day. There will be no school for students that day. Teachers will be learning about the effects of adverse childhood experiences (ACEs) on learning and behavior and how to build resilience in children who have these experiences.
Over half of adults in the U.S. have had at least one of these ACEs. Many have had more than four. The Center for Disease Control and Kaiser Permanente found that there is a direct correlation between ACEs and adult health conditions such as heart disease, obesity, alcoholism, anxiety and depression. They also found that chronic stress like ACEs can change how a child's brain functions and negatively impact learning. For more information, go to https://acestoohigh.com/aces-101/
