Chemistry professors in top hats and tails have fun with chemistry

Chemistry professors in top hats and tails have fun with chemistry

Honoring a tradition that was started in the 1820s at the Royal Institution, two Pacific chemistry professors dressed as 19th century chemists will carry out experiments that explode, change colors and delight an audience of all ages.

The event is FREE and open to the public, but admission is limited. Tickets are available at the Pacific Box Office.

The tradition comes from the Royal Institution of Great Britain’s Christmas Lecture. The Royal Institution has offered a science lecture to children in the London community every year since 1825, with the exception of the years during World War II when the series was suspended. The lecture series was founded by Michael Faraday, considered one of the great scientists of modern history.

During Pacific’s event, the two chemistry professors will make liquids change colors, set things on fire and blow stuff up simply by mixing liquids together, then explain how they did it all.

Fall home tips from Haggerty Construction

Fall home tips from Haggerty Construction

Fall is here and winter is just around the corner. It's time to decorate in beautiful warm colors, bring out your favorite 'comfort food' recipes, and throw your cozy afghan quilt over the sofa. It's also time to prepare your home, office and properties for the upcoming weather. All of us in California are hoping for a wet year to help us with our ever-looming drought - yet we also know with wet and stormy weather comes potential water damage and drafty rooms.

We've provided a few tips that can be used for your home, business and commercial properties.

1. Window and doors: Check for cracks, leaks and air coming through the sills and doorframes. A tight seal is one of the easiest ways to save on your energy bill & maintain a comfortable interior.

2. Heating Units: Have your heating units cleaned & serviced, which will keep your environment healthy and extend the life of your heating system.

Two-alarm fire erupts at vacant Modesto home


Firefighters from the Modesto Fire Department battled a two-alarm house fire Sunday morning.

The fire engulfed a vacant home on the 700 block of Empire Avenue. The fire that burned the single-story home also threatened occupied structures to the north and south sides according to the Modesto Fire Department's Facebook page.

Since there was a gas line feeding the fire and downed power lines limiting fire crews, response was raised to two-alarms.

A total of 31 people worked to battle the fire and it took crews an hour to extinguish the fire completely. All threatened structures were protected from the fire and no occupants were displaced. The damage was estimated to be $50,000.

The cause of the fire is undermined.
