Electricity - it's one of the most important innovations in the history of humankind. It's hard to imagine life without electricity, and for good reason.

Panel Breaker is Tripped

If you don't have any power in your home, it might be time to check your electrical panel to see if there are any tripped breakers. If you spot a tripped breaker, try your best to switch it over to its original position. If you can't, remember that some breakers need to be flipped to the "off" position before turning it back on. If you don't have any luck, give our office a call. We'll send a trained residential electrician in Ariel to your home to fix the problem on-site.

Overhead Fan Stops Working

If you have an overhead fan in your living room or bedroom, you know how quickly it can accumulate dust. Most homeowners clean up using a rod duster. However, sometimes homeowners accidentally hit the fan direction switch when doing so. But, instead of flipping it "on" or "off," they bump it into a limbo zone where neither direction is selected. When this happens, your overhead fan will not spin. If one of your fans stops working suddenly, this is one of the most common reasons why. If you're sure you didn't hit the fan direction switch, it could be an indication of a larger problem. In this case, call our office for a free phone consultation. We'll troubleshoot with you over the phone and if necessary, send out an electrician.

Kitchen Breaker Keeps Tripping

If your home was built in the last 35 years, chances are it has two 20-amp circuits running to your kitchen countertop outlets. Newer homes will have three circuits. If you're constantly tripping the breaker to your kitchen, it's most likely because you have too many electrical devices connected to the same circuit. To help alleviate this problem, place appliances like coffee makers and toasters on two different circuits. That way, they can share the load.

At the end of the day, your home is your place of solitude and relaxation. But, when you have electrical issues in your home, things can quickly go from peaceful to problematic. Whether you're renovating your home and need a new room wired for power or your panel breaker keeps giving your problems, L&M Electric is here to assist. If you have questions about an issue or need to schedule service, our team is ready to help answer your questions and coordinate the best time for a residential electrician to come to your home in Ariel.

 Smart Home Installation Ariel, SC

Install Surge Protectors

Intense lighting storms can cause powerful surges of electricity that ruin your home's electrical appliances and amenities. Surge protectors installed at your electrical panel can help prevent these surges by grounding the electricity running through your home. They do so by directing it away from your electrical devices. This common solution is inexpensive, effective, and always a better choice than replacing expensive items like TVs and computers.

 Electrical Repairs Ariel, SC

Examine Your Breaker Panel

Breaker panels control the power to your home. When they go bad or are damaged, there's a good chance that you will lose power to most of the rooms in your house. Open your breaker panel and keep a sharp eye out for signs of corrosion and rust. Double-check that each breaker you see flips on and off properly. If you notice corrosion or if the breaker switches won't flip, it's time to get in touch with a residential electrician in Ariel, SC, who can inspect your breaker panel and recommend upgrades if necessary.

 Electrical Safety Inspection Company Ariel, SC

Test Your GFIs

GFIs, or Ground Fault Interrupters, are similar to surge protectors in that they prevent electrical damage from happening in your home. The primary job of a GFI is to prevent electrical shocks that happen during a ground fault. Because water is a conductor of electricity, GFIs should be installed anywhere that an outlet comes into contact with water. You should try to test your GFIs every month, if possible, to ensure that they are working correctly. When you look closely at your GFI, you will notice a "test" and a "reset" button. Hit the "test" button to trip the GFI outlet and then hit "reset" to restore power. If your outlet resets, your GFI is working as it should. If not, you need to replace your GFI outlet. Because electricity is involved, we recommend hiring a professional to install new GFIs in your home. That way, you know the job is done right.

Replace Outdated Light Bulbs

The right light bulb can add the perfect amount of ambiance to your home. Eventually, however, even the best light bulbs will need replacing. While they don't need checking every month, it's a good idea to inspect all your bulbs at the beginning of the year. If any of your bulbs are dead, you should replace them. You should also consider replacing bulbs that are incandescent with LED lights. LED light bulbs may cost more upfront but use less electricity and are more efficient over the long run.

Schedule a Home Safety Inspection

In terms of preventative maintenance, scheduling a safety inspection for your home's electrical systems should be a high priority. These inspections will shine a light on the electrical features in your home that need to be fixed. Most modern electrical fires are caused by short circuit arcs, defective insulation, or broken wiring. An inspection conducted by a qualified electrician will help determine what needs to be fixed so you and your family stay safe in your home. Your inspector should cover your whole home and will examine common features such as:

  • Breakers
  • Fans
  • Exposed Wiring
  • Electrical Panels
  • Circuits
  • Switches
  • Outlets and More

All Opening Day Scores

In her first start in a home opener since 2018, Washington Mystics forward and former league MVP Elena Delle Donne led her team in holding off a young Indiana Fever squad 84-70 Friday night at Entertainment and Sports Arena in front of a sold-out crowd.

The Fever, with the most rookies of any other team in the league, put up a good fight late in the game to get within six points midway through the fourth quarter after trailing by 21 early in the third period.

Mystics coach and general manager Mike Thibault said that late in the game his team began settling for long jump shots and not putting the Fever in foul trouble like they did in the first half, but “all in all, a good start.”

With a balanced effort, the Mystics pulled away for a 31-16 lead in the first quarter after a close contest in the first five minutes.

Veteran guard Natasha Cloud guided the Mystics in the first ten minutes. Leading all scorers with eight points heading into the second period. Newcomers, including rookie Center Shakira Austin, had significant contributions early in the game. At the half, Cloud was in double digits with 15 points while Austin had seven.

Delle Donne, who missed two seasons due to injuries and Covid-19 precautions on her part, turned it up in the second half with seven points in the third quarter and eight in the last ten minutes to finish with a team-high 21 plus nine rebounds. She said postgame that she was “feeling great and just grateful to be out here.”

“I feel like it took me a little bit to get my rhythm but my teammates kind of stuck with me, just stuck with the process of making reads, knowing that our looks were good and staying on it. But yeah, I came out with a little bit of butterflies, but good ones. I mean, shoot. I’m playing basketball again. So, this is fun.”

Cloud’s contribution was also significant: 17 points, four rebounds, and six assists. She was also 100% (5-5) from the free-throw line. Ariel Atkins added 15 points and Shatori Walker-Kimbrough scored 10 points.

While fourth-year guard Tiffany Mitchell led the Fever with 18 points, the other two Fever players in double figures were rookies who started. NaLyssa Smith, a forward out of Baylor and the No. 2 pick in the 2022 draft, put up a double-double of 13 points plus 13 rebounds. Her fellow Baylor alumna, center Queen Egbo, added 10 points plus six rebounds. Another rookie starter, guard Destanni Henderson out of South Carolina played about 17 minutes and scored four points, and dished out a team-high five assists. Off the bench, rookie Emily Engstler (Louisville) had four points plus nine rebounds.

The Fever return home to face the Los Angeles Sparks on Sunday at 3 p.m. ET. Washington goes on the road to play at Minnesota on the same day at 8 p.m. ET.

You don't have to go to Mexico for authentic Mexican cakes, breads and pastries. These bakeries are right here in Green Bay and Appleton

Authentic tastes of Mexico. Traditional pastries and a bit of a sugar rush. You can get all three in Green Bay and Appleton at three bakeries run by three couples — with three stories of hard work.

La Rosa Bakery and El Manjar Bakery in Green Bay and Trigales Bakery in Appleton each fill their display cases with traditional baked goods like tres leches cakes, concha and cornbread. Some recipes include a dash of innovation. Think coffee-infused tres leches cake or a baguette-like bread stuffed with cream cheese and fresh jalapeno slices.

A pinch of competition doesn't hurt.

La Rosa and El Manjar at 1742 and 1741 University Ave., respectively, sell their baked goods across the street from each other.

“I think the competition is good, it makes all of us do a better job with our products. In the end, the client is the beneficiary,” said Flor Angeles Hernandez, co-owner of El Manjar.

“They have families, that’s why I don’t mind the competition. I wish them well, to them, and everyone that has a business and a family,” said Adriana Soto, co-owner of La Rosa.

Trigales Bakery

Where: 2305 S. Oneida St., Appleton

About the bakery: Trigales, the Spanish word for wheat fields, is owned and operated by husband and wife team of Laura Zavala and Ivan Rosas.

Baking is a generational family tradition for Rosas.

"My uncle said that my grandfather made churros and my grandmother made doughnuts. So this goes way back."

Rosas, now 37, started working with dough when he was 7. He learned the baking trade under the guidance of his uncles, who own bakeries in Mexico.

Using four basic doughs, Rosas creates more than 60 varieties of baked goods. Many, like conchas, follow his grandfather's recipes.

Concha — the Spanish word for shell — is like a doughnut topped with a layer of sugar in a swooshy, shell-like pattern. Traditionally, the topping colors are white or pink or chocolate but Rosas said they break from tradition in summer.

"We added different colors, like purple and blue and made it a unicorn or rainbow colors," Rosas said. "People really liked them."

Most Valuable Pastry: Concha, tres leches cake and a salty bread they call "bolillo," similar to a baguette.

"If there aren’t any conchas, even with everything else filled, people say, ‘Aww, I’ll be back later’, and they don’t take anything," Rosas said. "But if there are conchas, then they do buy other stuff."

Pastry sampler: With dozens of pan dulce, Spanish for "sweet bread" or pastry, in Rosas's repertoire, Trigales features an ever-changing array of treats. Some you might find include:

Ivan's favorite: A molasses cookie cut in the shape of a pig, known as puerquito.

"That is very traditional in Mexico ... there are places where they only sell puerquitos, big ones and small ones. They are very easy to make, so people started selling them in bags of five. They became famous. You can even see people on the streets (in Mexico) with a big basket selling them."

For first-timers: Rosas suggests treats filled with jam, like strawberry, pineapple, and guava, for sweets. If customers are looking for a mild sweetness, he suggests pastries like concha because it's "not as sweet, or at least not exaggeratedly sweet."

A passion for pastry:For Rosas, baking provides fulfillment. Authentic pastries like his grandfather's conchas and puerquitos provide Trigales customers a true taste of Mexico.

"What I really like is that is not a repetitive job. Every day changes. Also, to see the product finished makes me emotional and I like it."

La Rosa Bakery

Where: 1742 University Ave., Green Bay.

About the bakery: La Rosa, Spanish for “The Rose,” is owned by Adriana Soto and Jaime Flores, a Mexican-American couple.

Soto and Flores met and married in Chicago, where they each worked two jobs and saved money to one day have a business of their own. Flores cleaned floors at a bakery where he would stay after his shifts and watch the bakers at work. His interest led to an unpaid internship at the bakery, which provided a new set of skills and more.

Soto said he frequently would come home with a new recipe and say, “put that away, for when we have our own business.”

After years of hard work, the couple moved to Kenosha and opened their first bakery, Sweet Zulem. Soto ran the business, attended to custumers, dealt with vendors and did some of the accounting. Flores baked. They sold the bakery after their first child was born in 2008.

They visited family in Green Bay the following year. They liked the calmness of the city and its job opportunities and stayed. After a serious discussion, Soto agreed to use the money from the sale of Sweet Zulem to open La Rosa Bakery.

Most Valuable Pastry: Birthday cakes are the best sellers, and the tres leches, a sponge cake — in some recipes, a butter cake — that is soaked in three kinds of milk: evaporated milk, condensed milk, and heavy cream. Flores infuses the milk with flavors like pina colada or coffee.

You can order personalized cakes in different sizes.

Soto says they usually made big cakes, but during the pandemic they had to adapt to what clients demanded.

"They were having smaller celebrations, so they asked for smaller cakes, so now we have mainly two sizes: big or small," she said.

Pastry Sampler: Soto says they have a little bit of everything to satisfy their diverse clientele. Hispanic customers look for traditional sweets like the conchas, or breads like bolillo and telera. Other customers enjoy sweets like flan, palmeritas (sugary covered crunchy bread) or guava and cheese pastry.

Other treats regularly available are:

El Manjar

Where: 1741 University Ave., Green Bay.

About the bakery: Flor and Jose Hernandez opened “El Manjar,” or "The Delicacy" shortly after they moved to Green Bay in 2014 from South Carolina, where they had lived for seven years after arriving in the United States from Mexico.

Jose works as the baker, something he learned by watching others work in bakeries in Mexico.

“I didn’t have a school for this,” he said.

Flor works in the front of the store. She also helps in the kitchen when Jose needs an extra hand.

The couple, with help of their three children, make El Manjar a go-to for traditional pastries of Mexico and some from the United States — with a Latino touch.

Flor says what makes El Manjar different is that their products have “a presentation of the city, but with the flavor of the countryside.”

They also use locally sourced, fresh ingredients.

Most Valuable Pastry: Pan de elote, or Mexican cornbread, is one of their biggest sellers. To make this bread, they buy fresh corn on the cob, grate it manually and freeze it for winter.

Pastry Sampler: El Manjar makes baked goods like doughnuts, eye of the ox, elephant, ears, which are deep fried rounds of sweet pastry dough that's been made with yeast, and other popular Hispanic pastries including:

Flor says they also bake special items for celebrations like Día de Reyes (Epiphany), when they make King's Wreath, a sweet bread shaped in the form of a wreath with candied fruit on top.

They also make personalized cakes for quinceañera birthdays, weddings or whatever their customers are celebrating.

"We also do raffles on Facebook and give away sweets, cakes and other pastries for kids. People love that," she said.

Epigenetic patterns in a complete human genome

Structured Abstract

The human reference genome has served as the foundation for many large-scale initiatives, including the collective effort to catalog the epigenome, the set of marks and protein interactions that act to control gene activity and cellular function. However, for more than two decades, efforts to construct a complete epigenome have been hampered by an incomplete reference genome. With recent technological advances, we can now study genome structure and function comprehensively across a complete telomere-to-telomere human genome assembly, T2T-CHM13. As a result, we can now broaden the human epigenome to include 225 million base pairs (Mbp) of additional sequence.

The epigenome refers to DNA modifications (e.g., CpG methylation), protein-DNA interactions, histone modifications, and chromatin organization that collectively influence gene expression, genome regulation, and genome stability. These epigenetic features are heritable upon cell division but dynamic during development, generating profiles that are unique to different tissues and cell types. Here, we present an epigenetic annotation of the human genome in which we explore previously unresolved regions, including acrocentric chromosome short arms, segmentally duplicated genes, and a diverse collection of repeat classes, including human centromeres. Generating a complete epigenetic annotation of the previously missing 8% of the human genome provides a foundation for elucidating the functional roles of these genomic elements that are critical to our understanding of genome regulation, function, and evolution.

Completion of the human epigenome required that we develop approaches to profiling the previously unresolved regions. Using the T2T-CHM13 reference with existing short-read epigenetic data, we identified 3 to 19% more enrichment sites for epigenetic markers. However, even with the complete reference, these short-read epigenetic methods cannot correctly resolve regions of the genome of high similarity, including segmental duplications, gene paralogs, or large repeat arrays. On the other hand, long-read epigenetic methods can resolve single-molecule epigenetic patterns within these regions by anchoring to flanking or infrequent unique regions, providing a foundational assessment of these areas. Long-read methylation calls using the T2T-CHM13 assembly increased the number of probeable CpG sites by 10% (3.2 M), revealing epigenetic patterning of genomic regions that were previously intractable. We generated long-read methylomes of distinct developmental time points and surveyed >99% of the genome’s CpGs. We probed highly homologous gene families and observed paralog-specific differences in regulation between disease and nondisease states. In tandem repeats, we identified differences in epigenetic regulation between genetically identical sequences present across different genomic locations, observing locus- and single-molecule-level differences in methylation. Our analysis revealed that these regions vary in epigenetic and transcriptional activity despite high sequence identity, highlighting the importance of the local chromosome environment as a modulator of epigenetics. Finally, the T2T-CHM13 genome assembly has opened exploration of the human centromere, enabling us to probe the epigenetic elements that define centromeric chromatin. The centromere is the site of assembly of the kinetochore complex, an essential complex for eukaryotic cell division. We generated complete epigenetic maps of human centromeres, revealing epigenetic markers of centromere activity that denote active human kinetochores. We predicted kinetochore site localization within active centromeres and report variability of kinetochore localization across individuals representing diverse ancestry.

The improvements in epigenetic profiling using T2T-CHM13 set the foundation for complete assemblies and long-read epigenetics for major biological advancements. Using technological advances in genome resequencing and alignment, we present a comprehensive functional assessment of previously unresolved genomic regions. This study marks the start of exploration into duplicated and repetitive portions of the epigenome, pioneering the exploration of epigenetics in a complete human genome.

The Perlman Music Program Suncoast presents PMP Alumni: Around Town featuring the Ariel Quartet on Saturday, April 9 at 7:00pm at Temple Sinai, 4631 S Lockwood Ridge Rd, Sarasota, FL.

Distinguished by its virtuosity, probing musical insight, and impassioned, fiery performances, the Ariel Quartet has garnered critical praise worldwide for more than twenty years. It's members first met in Israel in 1998 when they were just teenagers. In 2000, they officially formed as a quartet in Jerusalem as part of a chamber music class at the Jerusalem Academy Middle School for Music and Dance. According to one of the members: "We used to study for school exams together, but since math didn't go so well, we decided to stick to music..." In 2003, the Quartet was invited to attend The Perlman Music Program's inaugural Chamber Music Workshop, and returned to PMP's Shelter Island Campus every summer throughout the following decade. In 2012, they joined the faculty of Cincinnati's College-Conservatory of Music as its official quartet-in-residence, and in 2013, received the prestigious Cleveland Quartet Award, granted by Chamber Music America in recognition of artistic achievement and career support.

The Ariel Quartet first visited the Suncoast in 2009 to present education outreach programs in Sarasota and Manatee schools. During the 2013-2014 season, the Quartet - its members not even 30 years old - delighted audiences with a rare performance of the complete cycle of Beethoven String Quartets, presented in six concerts over three months. They returned for a concert at the Sarasota Opera House in 2015 and their last live performance in the area was at the Venice Performing Arts Center in 2016. In 2021, we presented a virtual recital featuring the Quartet as part of our PMP Alumni: At Home series. We are excited that these incredibly talented young musicians will be returning to Sarasota for live performances in April.

Repertoire for the evening will include Ludwig van Beethoven's String Quartet No. 10 in E-flat major, Op. 74, ("Harp") and Béla Bartók's String Quartet No. 5.
