The view from the air of our June 27, 2016 Eyes Over Puget Sound marine monitoring flight.

Read details of water conditions in this month’s Eyes Over Puget Sound report: www.ecy.wa.gov/programs/eap/mar_wat/eops/EOPS_2016_06_27.pdf

Eyes Over Puget Sound combines high-resolution photo observations with satellite images, ferry data from travel between Seattle and Victoria BC, and measurements from our moored instruments. We use a seaplane to travel between our monitoring stations because they are so far apart. Once a month, we take photos of Puget Sound water conditions and turn those out, along with data from our stations, in the monthly Eyes Over Puget Sound report.

Benefits of a 2 Way Radio

September 17th, 2016
Washington Radio
by ep_jhu

The discovery of a 2 way radio can be traced back to 1888 when it was proved by Hertz that electrical signals could be transmitted without wires. Later in 1912, transmitters and receivers were installed on marine ships so that communication could be made easy. Since then these radios are providing a lot of benefits to people from all walks of life.

Today the 2 way radios are very compact and lightweight and easy to handle. They can operate on a larger number of frequencies and can have multiple channels. These also have several other features that make these radios very user friendly and durable. These radios also find use in a lot of applications. These are used by security personnel, in taxis, businesses, schools and hospitals. These are even used at construction sites and by military organizations.

The main benefit of a 2 way radio is that it is portable. This means it can be easily carried from one place to another. These offer a simple way in which people can stay connected with each other over both short distances as well as larger distances. Another main benefit of using radios for communication purposes is that there is no charge for talking to each other. This makes these radios even more popular than cell phones where there is a per minute call charge. These radios are very easy to use. These are provided with a push button that just needs to be pushed for the transmission. This makes these radios fit for use even for children. Also these radios are manufactured keeping in mind all the regulations that have been set and thus they are also safe to use.

Another advantage of these types of radios is that they are affordable. These are available in a very good quality and their cost effectiveness has made them popular. These radios can be selected by a user on the basis of the usage and the area that needs to be covered. The users can select from either a high power radio or a low power radio depending upon the area that needs to be covered.

Many 2-way radios are also compatible with computers. This makes it possible for users to send and receive data over different computer systems. Another benefit offered by these radios is that they operate on wireless technology. This means that a user does not have to go through the hassle of arranging wires and maintaining them. Another advantage of these radios is that they have batteries that have a long life. This means that these radios can be used for transmission of data over longer distances as long as the battery has life without having to pay anything extra.

2 way radios also have several features like weather reports, compass for navigation, satellite receivers etc. These features make these radios all the more attractive.

When buying such a radio, the various benefits need to be kept in mind so that one can choose the best possible radio set.

#PreciousGoods Washington, D.C. | Monthly Care Package Assembly Mixer

September 16th, 2016

#PreciousGoods Washington, D.C. | Monthly Care Package Assembly Mixer
Event on 2016-09-25 18:00:00
#PreciousGoods Can you imagine being on your cycle and not having access to the items you need to manage it? While many of us may cringe at that thought, it is an unfortunate, recurring reality for many young girls and women who aren’t in a financial position to purchase feminine hygiene products. The Black Pearl Project’s goal is to ease this burden for as many of our sisters as possible through #PreciousGoods, our primary initiative in which we collect donations of feminine hygiene products and distribute them to women in need. The three key parts of this initiative are the product drive, assembly mixers, and care package distribution. Product Drive As this is an ongoing initiative, we accept (and appreciate) donations on a rolling basis. Specifically, we ask for packages of individually wrapped tampons, pads, and panty liners. If you are unable to attend one of our mixers but would still like to donate, please contact us to make arrangements. While it is preferred that you donate the listed items, we’re also happy to accept monetary donations via PayPal or Venmo. Assembly Mixers Volunteers are a huge part of #PreciousGoods as we need help putting care packages together. We’re constantly growing and expanding to new cities so please check the main events page to see if there’s a mixer coming up near you! The assembly mixers are also a great opportunity for you to meet other like-minded women and make new friends. After all, sisterhood is one of the cornerstones of The Black Pearl Project! Care Package Distribution The care packages are distributed over the week following a mixer. They will be given directly to homeless women, as well as to those currently living in shelters and group homes that we work with. While specific distribution methods and locations may vary by city, we always want to ensure the care packages are given to the women that need them most. If you are aware of an individual or organization that is in need of our help and is located in an area that we currently service, please contact us directly. Questions? Want to help? If you have any questions or would like to play a role in this initiative, please visit our contact page and fill out the form, or contact us directly at hello@theblackpearlproject.org.
