I worked with one NASA atmospheric modeling system which one of the guys in our office didn't believe the answers it was giving. The model had been around for many years and used by many. I investigated and found a unit mismatch where one place was expecting watts/steradian and the other watts/degree. Fixed it and the answers were much more reasonable. I worked with another model produced by…

Durbin makes fund-raising stop in Quincy

Private event Sat night at QU

U.S. Senator Dick Durbin (D-IL) made a stop in Quincy for a private fund-raiser Saturday night at Quincy University.

Before the fund-raiser, Durbin made a statement about this year’s corn and soybean crop. “It’s the time of year when we have to take a close look at transportation issues, and one that’s going to be very important for us in the Midwest. We’re going to have a bumper crop of corn and soybeans, and we’re going to need a lot of efforts to move it. Obviously the river is major, and we’re going to use trucks, but 30% of our crop moves by rail. The problem we have now is that a lot of rail cars are being used in the upper Midwest to move bulk oil out of North Dakota and Canada. They’re finding problems in the upper Midwest when it comes to capacity. I wrote to the Surface Transportation Board in Washington this week, and I asked them to monitor the availability of rail capacity to move our crop. We wanna make sure that this great crop moves to market, and that our farmers end up with a profit at the end of the year.”

When asked about the priorities of his re-election campaign, Durbin said “The highest priority is, of course, to let the people of Illinois know what it takes to create good-paying jobs in the state. We’re still concerned. We’re coming out of the recession slowly, but there’s also a problem with jobs that don’t pay enough money. There’s a problem with students having too much college debt, and being unable to pay it back. So these are the basic middle-class, middle income working issues that I think are still front and center. What I’ve tried to do in the Senate is to bring the money home. Being a down-stater myself, and having represented this area for many years, I know how important it is to make sure we have the best investment. The single best investment we have in terms of job creation, I think, is our university system downstate, and our community colleges. The community colleges like John Wood, linking up with local employers, create real jobs with real paychecks. And I’m finding that to be a real source of hope, and the future of job employment downstate”.       

Durbin and his wife stayed  in Quincy overnight, and say a few remarks at the Sunday service at the Cathedral of orship on North 25th Street.
