Environmental issues in New York

Environmental issues in New York State include water, waste disposal, hydraulic fracturing, air quality, invasive species. In New York State there are a multitude of water issues. In 2016 there was a harmful algal bloom. There are a multitude of bodies of water that are being affected by this for example, Chautauqua Lake was reported with as well as a high toxin report. In Cattaraugus County the Allegheny Reservoir* was confirmed with algal blooms but no toxins. There are many more than 50 affected by. In 1984, the "State Acid Deposition Control Act" required the reduction of SO2 emissions from existing sources and further NOx emission controls on new sources in New York State." Issues other causing and or helping the acid rain continue is power automobiles. The environmental impact is eroding the ornamental facades, but it messes with the sensitivity of an ecosystem like the Adirondack Mountains because the acid rains impacts the adequate soil buffering capacity to counter the acids deposited to it.

There are a multitude of different types of waste, disposed in York State some of them being household hazardous waste and demolition debris, industrial/commercial waste, regulated medical waste, waste tires, used oil, much more. Some of the issues that York State faces is there are so many different kinds of waste that needs to be disposed of and there is not enough room for it to go. High-volume hydraulic fracturing in New York State was earlier. Problems with this were contamination of drinking water, it polluted the air with tons of natural gas, pumped from the ground. The drinking water at point was flammable when pedestrians and home owners would light their drinking water on fire; the smell of the gases impacted homeowners health badly making some sick. But it took up a lot of space and affected the living lifestyles of those that were near the sites where they pumped. Another impacted was habitat loss due to the large structures. According to the American Lung Association's report State of the Air 2012, Monroe County received a grade of'C' for ground-level ozone.

That means. That's up from the 2011 report when we had got an'F'. Back in 2004, Rochester was ranked 43rd worst metropolitan area for air quality. And, the last time the EPA measured Monroe County for ground-level ozone in 1997, we received a'marginal' grade, up from the previous'non attainment' grade. In New York State there are a multitude of different invasive species including the Asian carp, the zebra mussel, emerald ash borer, purple loosestrife, the goby and more. An unfortunate byproduct of world travel and trade is the introduction of unwanted invasive species. Shipping pallets and crates, the ballast water of boats and people can unintentionally transport invasive plants and diseases to new areas. Without knowing that they would become problematic, some species have been introduced intentionally for use in landscaping and other purposes. Invasive species impact all aspects of life, from recreation to livelihood. Spotted knapweed is an invasive plant that can take over crop fields, limiting crop production and feed for livestock.

Hemlock woolly adelgid is an invasive insect that exfoliates and kills hemlock trees, a key species in maintaining important habitat along waterways

1958 Rochdale by-election

The Ultimate Computer

"The Ultimate Computer" is the twenty-fourth episode of the second season of the American science fiction television series Star Trek. Written by D. C. Fontana and directed by John Meredyth Lucas, it was first broadcast on March 8, 1968. In the episode, the crew of the Enterprise race to disable a rogue computer in total control of the ship; the Federation starship Enterprise is summoned to a space station without explanation. Commodore Wesley explains that the Enterprise will be a test vessel for the M-5 Multitronic System, a revolutionary tactical and control computer designed by Dr. Richard Daystrom; the M-5 is to handle all ship functions without human assistance. While Science Officer Spock is impressed with M-5, Captain Kirk and Chief Medical Officer Dr. McCoy have doubts; the M-5 succeeds at its first tasks, performing ship functions more and efficiently than a living crew. However, M-5 exhibits unexpected behavior, such as turning off power and life support to unoccupied parts of the ship, drawing increased power for unknown reasons.

In its first tactical drill, M-5 defends the Enterprise against mock attacks from Starships Excalibur and Lexington. The Enterprise is declared the victor, Wesley jokingly refers to Kirk as "Captain Dunsel", employing a Starfleet Academy slang term for a part serving no useful purpose. Kirk is troubled by this; some time M-5 detects the Woden, an unmanned freighter, attacks with live torpedoes, destroying it. Kirk orders M-5 taken offline, but on attempting to do so, finds it protected by a powerful force field. Chief Engineer Scott orders Ensign Harper to disconnect its power source, but the M-5 creates a direct connection to the ship's warp engines, vaporizing Harper in the process. Spock and Scott discover that the M-5 has rerouted all controls. Spock questions Daystrom on his computer design, Daystrom reveals that he has imprinted human engrams onto M-5's circuits, creating what amounts to a human mind operating at the speed of a computer. Meanwhile, four of Enterprise's sister ships, Potemkin and Hood, approach to begin a new tactical drill.

Since M-5 has disabled communications, Kirk is unable to warn M-5's targets. M-5 detects the ships, attacks them with full-strength weapons; the crew watches helplessly as the Enterprise fires on the Lexington, killing 53, turns to the Excalibur, killing all aboard and leaving her adrift. Commodore Wesley assumes that Kirk himself is responsible for the attacks, requests permission from Starfleet Command to destroy the Enterprise. Daystrom, having indicated that the engrams he used were his own, believes he can reason with the M-5, but his conversation with the unit degenerates into a self-pitying lament over his own career disappointments. McCoy warns Kirk that he sees a psychotic episode coming, as Daystrom begins loudly to proclaim his and his creation's invincibility, Spock subdues him with a Vulcan nerve pinch. Kirk tries to persuade the M-5 to stop its attacks; the M-5 acknowledges Kirk. M-5 responds. Kirk rejoins. M-5 acknowledges that it has committed murder and must therefore die, shuts itself down.

In so doing, it cripples the Enterprise. Having received permission to destroy Enterprise, the other Federation ships close in. Since Scott is unable to restore communications Kirk decides to allow the ship to drift with shields down, hoping that Commodore Wesley will realize that the threat has passed; the gamble pays off as the Commodore orders his ships to stand down at the last moment. Michelle Erica Green of Trek Today maintains that it is one of McCoy's best episodes and praises the episode for taking place on the Enterprise, she states that the M-5 turns out to be one of Trek's best villains and that the analogies of computers taking over for humans is still powerful today. In 2011, this episode was noted by Forbes as one of the top ten episodes of the franchise that explores the implications of advanced technology, in particular the danger of A. I. In 2016, SyFy ranked guest star William Marshall's performance as Dr. Daystrom, as the 14th best guest star on the original series; this episode was considered groundbreaking in the casting of an African American, William Marshall, as the genius inventor of the M-5 as well as, the duotronic circuit, the basis of all Star Fleet computer systems.

The original draft was given to Ray Bradbury by mathematician and Star Trek fan Laurence Wolfe to give to Gene Roddenberry.

Bit.Trip Fate

Bit. Trip Fate, marketed as BIT. TRIP FATE, is an arcade-style scrolling shooter music game developed by Gaijin Games and published by Aksys Games for the Wii's WiiWare download service. Bit. Trip Fate takes place over three environments, each divided into two stages and culminating in a boss encounter; the first environment resembles a crystal cavern over a space backdrop, the second a cityscape filled with skyscrapers, the third an underground pit with rivers of magma. The game's hybrid mechanics feature a side perspective, resembling a horizontal shooter, but with Commander Video confined to a set path, called the Vibe, an element of rail shooters. In addition, the player controls Commander Video's movement independently of his targeting reticule, similar to the style of twin-stick games descended from Robotron: 2084; the reticule is commanded by the Wii Remote's IR pointer, with bullets firing radially from Commander Video's location. Movement along the rail is faster; the rail takes on various shapes similar to a sine wave, which are predetermined by the stage, while the screen scrolls at a steady rate.

Enemies advance from all directions, firing targeted and patterned bullets tradition to shoot'em ups. The player's performance and interaction with enemies creates musical feedback which contributes to the stage's soundtrack, providing an element similar to certain music games Rez; the gameplay is less rhythmically constrained than previous entries in the series, providing more freedom to the player, but less dynamic feedback
