Your Horoscope
Week of December 2
(Ramp Accessible) . . . because you are entitled not only to your own truth but also to your own predictions
The astrological stylings of the Autistic Astrologer. If you don't like your forecast, he will stick his fingers in his ears, stamp his feet, and hum loudly.

Cancer (June 21–July 22) A stranger will stop you in the mall and ask if you can change a twenty. This is a trick question. Don't rifle through your billfold. Don't rummage through your purse. Grab your left elbow instead, spin around once, and shout, "Into what, a toad, you jackass?" The stranger will then grant you three wishes. Beware, those have trick answers.

Leo (July 23–Aug. 22) Troubled by crank phone calls you install caller ID, only to learn that the person phoning you at 3 a.m. and reciting obscene limericks in an electronically altered voice is your mother. You left her in a nursing home nine states away, but wait until you find out where she's living.

Virgo (Aug. 23–Sept. 22) Your teeth become sensitive to radio waves following a routine dental X-ray, and you begin picking up cell phone transmissions within a one-mile radius. Soon you are tormented by the shallowness of human discourse and by a neighbor who sneaks out to the garage to talk on his cell phone late at night. Your reactions are not the mark of a large soul. You have not been cursed; you have been blessed with an opportunity to know your fellow humans and to become a better listener. Embrace it.

Libra (Sept. 23–Oct.23) The goddess Maytag, in harmonic convergence with the House of Proctor and Gamble, has designated the crockpot as your ruling symbol. Unfortunately, this symbol is associated not only with the pleasure of cooking for a family but also with the loneliness of the mechanized meal. In other words: heads you win, tails you eat alone.

Scorpio (Oct. 24–Npv. 21) You are at war with your demons, and your demons are winning. You are no longer on speaking terms with your conscience. The cardinal virtues just sublet your beach house to the seven deadly sins. Unless you can lay claim to excess disposable income and a lawyer with disposable ethics, do not change anything more significant than your ring tones until next week. Concentrate on small, manageable issues such as eliminating keyboard plaque, cataloging your CD collection, and arranging the books on your shelves in alphabetical order.

Sagittarius (Nov. 22–Dec. 21) This is your bulletproof week. The world is your White Diamond Escalade. No longer will you travel at the speed of dark. Wealth, success, and teeth-rattling sex are yours for the asking. Often you will be tempted to pinch yourself to make sure you are awake. That beats the weeks when you had to pinch your favorite sex partner to make sure he or she was awake. Warm the cockles of your cockles around this lap-dancing flame of good fortune, and don't be afraid to take risks.

Capricorn (Dec. 22–Jan. 19) The inclination to be status conscious and inhibited are so Capricorn that you rarely stop to ask yourself why you are hyper-cautious. Why do you get caught with your pants up while everyone else is skinny dipping in the communal hot tub? Why do you have to march to the beat of a metronome? If your inner Lady GaGa wants to bitch slap your outer Norah Jones, don't file a restraining order, scalp tickets to the event instead. Life is a party. Why not crash it?

Aquarius (Jan. 20–Feb. 18) Troubled by your lack of formal education, you enroll in a no-courses, no-tests, no-waiting virtual university that awards degrees based on a student’s life experiences. After reviewing your application and waiting for your check to clear, the dean’s council votes to grant you a Bachelor of Arts in Compromising Positions with a minor in communicative disorders, providing you allow them to keep the pictures. Did you remember to write SAMPLE across the pictures? If not, you better start working on your self-preservation skills.

.

Pisces (Feb. 19–March 20) The dating service you contacted suggests that you are best suited for the companionship of a significant other bearing a sticker that says, "Intel Inside." The next time you go looking for love in one of those fee-based places, be sure to check the application box that reads, "Same-species partner preferred."

Aries (March 21–April 19) Ever the cynic you have no trouble believing it isn’t butter; that some minds would not be a terrible thing to waste; and that maybe you don’t deserve a break today. You also have a highly developed sense of irony, which leads you to walk around muttering "I see living people" in a tiny, traumatized voice. Some people close to you might caution that trading on appearances is no substitute for developing the inner you. If they persist, try holding them at arm's length.

Taurus (April 20–May 20) Your life is a run-on sentence that is out of control and greatly in need of editing. Learn to appreciate the nuances of subordinate clauses and the hierarchical conjunctions that exist among colons, semicolons, commas, and em dashes. Strive to make the principles of good rhetoric your guiding lights. Better yet, learn when to keep your yap shut.

Gemini (May 21–June 21) Car A leaves Hollywood at 9:00 a.m. on Monday. Car B leaves Bangor, Maine, at the same moment. Car A, which has a 15-gallon gas tank and averages 19.6 miles per gallon, is driving east. Car B, which has a 17.5-gallon tank and averages 18.9 miles per gallon, is driving west. After three days, what color is car B?

Tips for Selecting Cranes for Hire
Nov 24, 2018 - 6:06
an image
Many construction companies today rent cranes and heavy equipment to complete large projects or install equipment. Any heavy lifting involved with construction projects needs qualified riggers and top-quality equipment.

There are many rental companies to choose from. If you are looking for crane hire Peterborough companies often have a fleet of cranes and other related machinery each used for a specific function. Some of the different types of cranes include:

• Crawler cranes
• Boom trucks
• All terrain cranes
• Hydraulic boom cranes
• Rough terrain cranes
Here are tips for selecting the right crane for the job.

The type of terrain

It is essential to consider the ground condition before renting a specific type of crane. You need to establish the maximum load the access ground and construction site can handle. If you don’t consider this, you might end up having trouble with a crane that is too heavy. Once the crane is already on site, you also need to check the ground condition at the location where the crane will lift heavy objects. If the ground is soft or rough, the best choice would be crawler cranes or rough terrain cranes.

Crane capacity

A crane’s lift capacity is based on the required reach and the load weight. If you also need to swing the load farther, you need a larger crane for the job compared to when you need to place the crane near the load.

Access to other areas within the project site

Before designing the plant site, engineers need to factor in adequate access before, during, and after crane installation. When providing suitable crane access is hard, you can also hire boom trucks or use a rough terrain crane as long as the roof is high and there is a wide access route to and from the site. However, you need to keep in mind that rough terrain cranes have limited reach and an equality limited lift capacity. An alternative solution when there is a problem with access is to remove a small portion of the roof and use either an all-terrain crane or a hydraulic boom crane installed outside. Although this will solve access issues, one of the limitations with this set-up is the distance and load capacity restriction.

Lift height

Lifting loads at a high height can be difficult and dangerous. This should only be done by a company that has experience and skill. Lifting loads at height requires careful planning. Setting up the site can take a long time, and you may need to secure a permit from local authorities. For projects that require high lifts, all-terrain cranes are the best fit.

Any job that requires using cranes for lifting is a dangerous undertaking. In this regard, you need to look for a crane hire company that has extensive experience in dealing with similar projects. Aside from the quality of the equipment, you may also request the rental company to provide a skilled crane operator to man the equipment. The safety of the entire plant site is a paramount consideration for every contractor and hiring an excellent plant hire company can help you ensure that you maintain safety standards until completion.
