Taking the mound at Citizens Bank Park on Science Day: Philliebot

Because our firm president, Andrew R. Yarmus, P.E., is an avid Mets fan, we couldn’t resist sharing a springtime baseball story with you about “PhillieBot, a one-armed, three-wheeled contraption that” threw “out the ceremonial first pitch before (a) game against the Milwaukee Brewers”.  While the Mets and Phillies are divisional rivals, we couldn’t pass up the opportunity to share a story that combines engineering, sports, and ingenuity.

Mr. Yarmus was one of the founding members of the Lower Hudson Valley Engineering Expo, and is thrilled to see up and coming engineers put their education to such challenging and interesting tests.  Please contact our office if you would like additional information about  the Engineering Expo, or are interested in having Engineer(s) speak at your local area school, student group, science club, etc. 

PlaNYC Includes Phasing Out Heavy Heating Oils 

On April 21, 2011, the AP reported “NYC Mayor Bloomberg offered an update Thursday to his PlaNYC proposal that aims to reduce greenhouse gas emissions 30% by 2030. Under the plan, “the phase-out of heavy oils from the city’s boilers would start right away and be completed by the 2030 deadline. It would reduce the presence of airborne fine particulate matter, which the city says is killing 3,000 residents each year and forcing 6,000 to seek emergency asthma treatment.” Bloomberg said that the city “would seek to encourage property owners to make the change right away, by working with energy companies to increase the distribution of natural gas and by making it easier for landlords to get permits for the work”.
