Needle
(SP-649: t. 22; 1. 71'; b. 10'; dr. 3'9"; s. 12 k.; a. 2 mg.)

Needle, a wooden motor boat built in 1906 by George Lawley & Sons Corp., Neponset, Mass., was acquired by the Navy from George L. Batehelder, Medford, Mass. 9 June 1917, and commissioned 20 June 1917 to serve on section patrol during World War I. After wartime service, she was struck from the Navy Register 18 August 1919 and sold to Morgan Barney, New York City 16 September 1919.


Who Invented the Syringe Needle?

Various forms of intravenous injection and infusion have been around as far back as the late 1600s. However, it wasn't until 1853 that Charles Gabriel Pravaz and Alexander Wood developed a needle fine enough to pierce the skin. The syringe was the first device used to inject morphine as a painkiller. The breakthrough also eliminated many of the technical difficulties facing those experimenting with blood transfusion.

Credit for the evolution of the universally useful hypodermic syringe with its hollow, pointed needle is usually given to Dr. Wood. He came up with the invention after experimenting with a hollow needle for the administration of drugs and found that the method was not necessarily limited to the administration of opiates.

Eventually, he felt confident enough to publish a short paper in The Edinburgh Medical and Surgical Review titled “A New Method of Treating Neuralgia by the Direct Application of Opiates to the Painful Points.” At about the same time, Charles Gabriel Pravaz, of Lyon, was making a similar syringe that quickly came into use during surgeries under the name of the “Pravaz Syringe.”


Needle felting is begun by rolling up a small amount of wool and stabbing it with the needle. When the wool is stabbed with the felting needle it pulls the wool into itself. By stabbing the wool with the needle over and over while turning the wool it continues to pull wool into itself and the wool, with its tiny scales, locks together. Continued stabbing and turning results in a firm round shape. Once there is a basic shape to start with wool is added where it is needed to form a sculpture.

This is the basic’s of needle felting, for more details and answers to your felting questions please scroll down the page.


Needle electromyography: Basic concepts

Needle electromyography (EMG) is the technique of recording and analyzing the electrical signals derived from individual muscle fibers of motor units, at rest and during voluntary contraction, using a needle recording electrode inserted into the muscle. Needle EMG entails inserting a needle electrode into a muscle, recording and amplifying the electrical signals generated from resting or contracting muscle fibers, and interpreting the signals to determine the function of the muscle fibers and motor units. Many factors affect the recorded signals during needle EMG, including the types of needle electrodes and filters and amplifier settings. Different semiquantitative and quantitative methods of analysis of the recorded signals are available, each with advantages and disadvantages. While needle EMG is a safe technique, potential risks include pain, bleeding, and pneumothorax.

Space Needle History

In 1959, Seattle hotel executive Edward E. Carlson, who was a chief organizer of the 1962 World’s Fair, traveled to Stuttgart Germany where he was inspired by a broadcast tower featuring a restaurant. He doodled an idea of a dominant central structure for the fair on a napkin in a hotel café convinced that such a tower could make a permanent center-piece for the fair and an enduring symbol for Seattle. He called it a “Space Needle.”

With innovation comes challenges…
Carlson and his supporters soon found moving the symbol from doodle to the drawing board, and then to the construction phase, was far from easy. The first obstacle was the structure’s final design. Carlson’s initial sketch underwent many transformations, including designs that resembled a landed UFO, a tethered balloon and even a cocktail shaker with a tram ferrying visitors to the top.

Architect John “Jack” Graham, Jr. fresh from his success in designing the world’s first auto-centric shopping mall (Seattle’s Northgate) and experimenting with a revolving bar in Hawaii, focused on a flying saucer-shaped top house. Graham’s team worked on sketches and ideas before a final design was reached just a year and a half before the World’s Fair. Architect Victor Steinbrueck came up with the wasp-waisted tower shape based on an abstract sculpture of a dancer called “The Feminine One.”

Home sweet home … planting our three legs.
Location and financing were also major challenges. The tower had to be privately financed and situated on land that could be acquired for private use on the fairgrounds. Early investigations indicated such a plot of land did not exist. However, just before the search was abandoned, a suitable 120-foot-by-120-lot on the site of an old fire station was found and sold to investors for $75,000 in 1961, just 13 months before the opening of the World’s Fair.

Construction, managed by the Howard S. Wright Construction Company, progressed quickly. An underground foundation was poured into a hole 30’ deep and 120’ across. It took 467 cement trucks an entire day to fill the hole, and the largest continuous concrete pour ever attempted in the West. Once the pour was completed, the foundation weighed as much as the Space Needle itself, establishing the center of gravity just five feet above ground.

December 1961

Let’s get ‘Spacey’
The basic Space Needle tower was completed in December 1961, eight months after it began. In keeping with the 21st Century theme of the World’s Fair, the final coats of paint were dubbed ‘Astronaut White’ for the legs, ‘Orbital Olive’ for the core of the structure, ‘Re-entry Red’ for the Halo and ‘Galaxy Gold’ for the sunburst and pagoda roof. The Space Needle’s chief engineer, John Minasian, had also designed rocket gantries for NASA.

April 21, 1962

Opening day. Hooray!
The Space Needle officially opened the first day of the World’s Fair. During the expo the tower hosted an estimated 2.65 million visitors. They included world celebrities including Elvis Presley, the Shah and Empress of Iran, Prince Philip of Great Britain, Bobby Kennedy, Walter Cronkite, John Wayne, Bob Hope, Chubby Checker, Billy Graham, John Glenn, Jonas Salk, Carol Channing, Neil Armstrong, Lyndon Johnson, Walt Disney and scores of others. The mast originally topping the structure was a natural gas torch that was lit up at night in rainbow colors.

After the fair, a radio broadcast booth was built on the Space Needle for a local radio station.

The Wheedle
Local Seattle author Stephen Cosgrove introduced the beloved character, the Wheedle. The infamously shy, orange character resembled Bigfoot with a bright red nose and lived atop the tower. He was featured in a popular children’s story and later became the mascot for Seattle’s NBA basketball team, the SuperSonics.

SkyLine
The 100’ SkyLine level was added as a special event space, hosting view-spectacular weddings, receptions, and business meetings.

The Space Needle falls…April Fools!
One evening in 1989, the KING-TV Almost Live comedy show ran a spoof news bulletin announcing that the Space Needle had fallen over. The live broadcast included a mocked-up graphic of the tower in ruins on the ground. The April Fools prank received international attention and overwhelmed Seattle’s 9-1-1 emergency system with people who believed it was real.

April 21, 1997

For its 35th anniversary in 1997, the tower introduces a new, short-lived mascot, Sneedle.

Legacy Lights
The Space Needle unveiled its Legacy Lights for the first time. The powerful beam of light is powered by lamps that total 85 million candela shinning upwards from the top of the tower to honor national holidays and special occasions. The Legacy Lights remained lit for eleven days straight in response to the September 11th attacks in 2001.

April 21, 1999

37 Looks Good on you. Happy Birthday!
On April 21, 1999, the Space Needle’s 37th birthday, the City’s Landmarks Preservation Board named it an official City of Seattle Landmark. In its Report on Designation, the Landmarks Preservation Board wrote, “The Space Needle marks a point in history of the City of Seattle and represents American aspirations towards technological prowess. [It] embodies in its form and construction the era’s belief in commerce, technology and progress.”

The tower completed a $20 million revitalization in 2000. The project included construction of the Pavilion Level, SpaceBase retail store, SkyCity restaurant, Observation Deck improvements, exterior lighting additions, exterior painting and more. In comparison, the Space Needle was built in for about $4.5 million dollars in 1962.

Space Race
For the Space Needle’s 50th anniversary, it sponsored “Space Race 2012,” a contest that selected one lucky individual to win an actual flight into orbit. The contest was announced by Buzz Aldrin, the Apollo 11 astronaut who was the second man to walk the moon.

Century Project
In September 2017, the Space Needle commenced construction on the largest renovation project in its history, “The Century Project.” The renovation aimed to reveal the tower’s internal structure and harken back to the original conceptual sketches, all while expanding and improving its views. The Space Needle remained open to the public during its 360-degree “Spacelift,” revealing its new look in late summer of 2018. Guests are now surrounded by two breathtaking, multi-level, floor-to-ceiling glass viewing experiences including an outdoor observation level with open-air glass walls and Skyriser glass benches. The upper observation level is now connected by the Oculus Stairs to The Loupe, the world’s first, and only, rotating glass floor below.

Bringin' the Noise: Duke of hurl

Whether seen in pop culture or sports, strokes of luck are ubiquitous. Anyone who stumbles across a group of experienced lady wooers at Comic-Con would definitely agree.

In baseball, unpredictable events mystify the masses on a daily basis. Disrespected slugger Josh Willingham(notes) launching two grand slams in a single game (The Noise tried to tell you!), Everth Cabrera(notes) flexing bleacher-reaching muscle and Homer Bailey(notes) actually not inducing sickness, are just a few recent examples.

Sometimes fortuitous episodes can stretch over an entire season.


With activation and a possible jersey-switch around the corner, "The Duke" could pay royal dividends down the stretch.

Last year, Oakland's Justin Duchscherer(notes) was the ultimate Cinderella. Widely considered one of the game's top-flight middle relievers entering '08, his seamless transition at age 30 from the bullpen to rotation was astonishing. In his All-Star honored campaign he compiled 10 wins, a 2.54 ERA, microscopic 1.00 WHIP, 6.04 K/9 and 2.19 BB/9 across 141.2 innings. Per Baseball Monster, the stellar performance was the 54th-most valuable output regardless of position and 24th-best among pitchers. Despite the rotation-anchoring effort, sophomoric humorists continued to purposely mispronounce his name.

Duchscherer's '08 campaign was unquestionably stunning, but many in the virtual sports community characterized him as "The Duke of Fluke." Based on his incredibly fortunate .240 BABIP – the lowest among qualifying starters – and 3.69 FIP, the naysayers had a strong argument. Oakland's efficient defense combined with the Coliseum's ball-suffocating dimensions padded his numbers. To non-believers, the crafty righty was another Kent Bottenfield '99 or Estaban Loaiza '03. It's sufficient to say, his foot wasn't expected to slide into a glass slipper again.

Sidelined since late March after undergoing arthroscopic surgery to relieve intense right elbow pain, Duchscherer has traveled down a long, winding road to recovery. Numerous instances of back tightness prolonged his rehab. Finally healthy, he's on a crusade to prove '08 wasn't an anomaly.

Donning Stockton Ports' threads this past Sunday, he worked two flawless innings, yielding zero runs with two punchouts. Slated to join Triple-A Sacramento Friday, he's scheduled to throw 60 pitches. If the injury imp doesn't resurface, expect him to return to big league action the second week of August. However, don't be shocked if he isn't wearing green. A number of hurler hungry teams, including the Yankees, Brewers and Rangers, scouted his performance in Stockton. Because Billy Beane's asking price is rumored to be a "modest prospect," odds are favorable the free-agent-to-be will be dealt before the deadline.

Whether he remains in O-town or not, the 40 percent-owned starter is a commodity trophy-minded owners should acquire. His potpourri of pitches – mid-80s cutter, high-80s four-seamer, curve, two-seamer – excellent control and ability to draw a respectable amount of weak contact (career 1.09 GB/FB) are qualities that arrow to continued success. But don't expect him to give Lady Luck a bear hug again. It's also important to keep in mind a ticket out of Oakland could increase his chances for Ws at an ERA/WHIP cost. Though still solid, he sported a .253 BAA on the road (2.70 ERA, 1.20 WHIP) compared to a .172 mark at home (2.41 ERA, 0.83 WHIP).

Flukes are indeed omnipresent in fantasy, but Oakland's motivated "Duke" could be the missing piece for champagne-thirsty owners.

Fearless Forecast (rest of season): 59 IP, 4 W, 3.38 ERA, 1.19 WHIP, 44 K
