External intercostal muscles

The external intercostal muscles, or external intercostals are eleven in number on both sides. The muscles extend from the tubercles of the ribs behind, to the cartilages of the ribs in front, where they end in thin membranes, the external intercostal membranes, which are continued forward to the sternum; these muscles work in unison. The internal intercostal muscles relax while the external muscles contract causing the expansion of the chest cavity and an influx of air into the lungs; each arises from the lower border of a rib, is inserted into the upper border of the rib below. In the two lower spaces they extend to the ends of the cartilages, in the upper two or three spaces they do not quite reach the ends of the ribs, they are thicker than the internal intercostals, their fibers are directed obliquely downward and laterally on the back of the thorax, downward and medially on the front. Continuation with the external oblique or serratus anterior: A supracostalis muscle, from the anterior end of the first rib down to the second, third or fourth ribs occurs.

Salt Water Barrier (Delaware River)

The Salt Water Barrier was a proposed project on the estuary of the Delaware River, projected in the late 1950s to convert the lower reaches of the Delaware into a freshwater lake. The barrier was proposed as a 30-foot high dam near New Castle, Delaware, 53,300 feet long, equipped with locks for the passage of shipping to Wilmington and Philadelphia. A study for the project was authorized by Congress in 1958, with engineering evaluations and public hearings by the U. S. Army Corps of Engineers; the prime purpose of the project was to develop the lower river as a source of drinking water for communities along the lower river. Objections to the barrier included concerns about the oyster industry, shipping constraints, increased shoaling, ice formation, most the possibility of trapping pollutants above the barrier; the project was found to be not economically practical. It was not included in the final Delaware River Basin Report of 1962, which proposed reservoirs higher in the Delaware River basin, no further action was taken.

The location of the impoundment was set by the presence of the eastern terminus of the Chesapeake and Delaware Canal south of New Castle, to remain a sea-level canal. Studies examined problems of ship passage, which would necessitate a system to flush the locks with pumped water to prevent salt water contamination; the study indicated that in the absence of regular tidal flushing there would be a buildup of pollutants in the impoundment that would render the fresh water reservoir unusable. The barrier itself was proposed as a low dike built using hydraulic fill, armored against storms with concrete paving. An overflow spillway was to be set in a section of concrete structure, adjacent to four navigation locks that could accommodate vessels of more than 40-foot draft. A 13-foot diameter tunnel was proposed to carry water from an intake structure near New Castle at a depth of about 400 feet for 39,000 feet in populated areas, or in a cut-and-cover trench in rural areas over 60,000 feet to Hoopes Reservoir above Wilmington.

Costs were projected in 1960 to be about $345,000,000 for the barrier, between $35,000,000 and $45,000,000 for water tunnels. Costs for an alternative intake from the reservoir behind the existing Conowingo Dam on the Susquehanna River were estimated to be between $140,000,000 and $170,000,000. Annual costs were estimated in the same proportion as the differences between the projects

James F. Reilly

James Francis Reilly II is an American geologist and a former NASA astronaut. He flew on three space shuttle missions: STS-89, STS-104 and STS-117. Reilly is the current Director of the United States Geological Survey. Reilly was born at Idaho, he graduated from Lake Highlands High School, Texas, in 1972. He has three degrees from the University of Texas at Dallas, a bachelor of science degree in geosciences in 1977, a master of science degree in geosciences in 1987 and a doctorate in geosciences in 1995. In graduate school, Reilly was selected to participate in the 1977–1978 scientific expedition to Marie Byrd Land, West Antarctica, as a research scientist specializing in stable isotope geochronology. In 1979, he started work as an exploration geologist with Santa Fe Minerals Inc. in Texas. From 1980 to the time he was selected for the astronaut program, Reilly was employed as an oil and gas exploration geologist for Enserch Exploration Inc. in Dallas, rising to the position of Chief Geologist of the Offshore Region.

At the same time, he was involved in applying new imaging technology for industrial applications in deep water engineering projects and biological research. Reilly spent 22 days in deep submergence vehicles operated by Harbor Branch Oceanographic Institution and the U. S. Navy. NASA selected Reilly for the astronaut program in December 1994, he reported to the Johnson Space Center in March 1995 and completed a year of training and evaluation, qualified for flight assignment as a mission specialist. He was assigned to work technical issues for the Astronaut Office Computer Support Branch. Reilly flew on STS-89 in 1998 and STS-104 in 2001, he has logged over 517 hours including three spacewalks totaling 16 hours and 30 minutes. He has worked both on the Mir space stations. Reilly was next assigned as the Astronaut Office lead on Shuttle training. In 2007 was a member of the crew of STS-117. Concurrent with his crew assignment he is designated as Payloads and Procedures Operations lead for the Astronaut Office ISS Branch.

From January 2010 to May 2014, Reilly worked as the American Public University System's Dean of the School of Science and Technology. In January 2018, U. S. President Donald Trump nominated Reilly to be the director of the U. S. Geological Survey; the U. S. Senate confirmed him in April 2018. Officer in the U. S. Navy Reserve. Member, American Association of Petroleum Geologists, Naval Reserve Association, Tailhook Association, Reserve Officers Association, Association of Space Explorers. Antarctic Service Medal, 1978. US Navy ROTC scholarship, 1972. Seventh Honorary U. S. Marshal, 2001. After James Reilly was appointed by President Trump to lead the U. S. Geological Survey he instructed his office to abandon the traditional practice of using climate models that stretch to the end of the century and instead only use computer-generated climate models projecting the impact of climate change through 2040, his statements on the National Climate Assessment focused on the uncertainties in the science rather than directly stating concurrence with opinions expressed by some scientists.
