Silent auction and raffle needs booth volunteers
AEG Foundation
The following is from Jane Gill-Shaler, RG, AEG Foundation director and fundraising chair:

We are on the home stretch to the AEG 2015 Annual Meeting, and the AEG Foundation needs volunteers to sit at the raffle and silent auction, Booths 1-3. We have both a 3-D Printer (photo to the right) and the queen-sized quilt, "Pittsburgh Before Pittsburgh," for the raffle, as well as many fine items for the silent auction.

Volunteers are encouraged to sign up for as many hours as possible. It is a great place to sit and rest between technical talks and to spend time with your friends and new acquaintances.

The front cutterhead has been repaired, and has been lowered back into the access shaft to be reattached to the TBM. The time-lapse video below shows the cutterhead being lowered down into the access shaft. What caught my eye was the number of steel cables on the crane blocks ... that's a heavy lift!

New sea-level rise handbook highlights science and
models for nonscientists

U.S. Geological Survey
Coastal managers and planners now have access to a new U.S. Geological Survey handbook that, for the first time, comprehensively describes the various models used to study and predict sea-level rise and its potential impacts on coasts. Designed for the benefit of land managers, coastal planners and policymakers in the United States and around the world, the handbook explains many of the contributing factors that account for sea-level change. It also highlights the different data, techniques and models used by scientists and engineers to document historical trends of sea level and to forecast future rates and the impact to coastal systems and communities.
