His life started with misery... He had fallen in the hands of psychotic kids who immersed his body in glue as a pup, then dragged him through the mud.

MTA Launches First Ever Pilot with UVC to Kill COVID-19


The Metropolitan Transportation Authority (MTA) announced an ultraviolet (UV) light pilot program which reportedly kills COVID-19, with the first phase set to launch on subways, buses, and other New York City Transit facilities throughout the system this week.

The MTA pilot will deploy approximately 150 dual-headed mobile devices from Denver-based startup PURO Lighting to test and evaluate the efficiency and cost-effectiveness of UVC technology in a number of settings across New York City Transit including trains, buses, stations and occupational facilities, using strict protocols and procedures to ensure the safety of the employees and customers. After evaluation, the pilot's second phase will expand to Long Island Rail Road and Metro-North.

UVC light is an efficient, proven, and effective technology for eliminating viruses, including SARS-CoV-2 that causes COVID-19, from surfaces in MTA’s system, says the MTA, and UVC is demonstrated to kill viruses in many other applications, including hospital operating rooms, urgent care clinics, universities, and fire stations. The first phase of the pilot will focus on the feasibility of using UVC to eradicate COVID-19 in rolling stock, including car classes R188, R62, R46, R68, and R160, stations and yards at Corona, Coney Island, Jamaica and Pelham. Occupational facilities, including maintenance areas, crew rooms, operations and technology centers, and offices, will also be included in the pilot.

The MTA has also launched a “Temperature Brigade” on March 24, taking employee temperatures at work locations, implemented rear-door boarding on buses and eliminated cash transactions at stations and on commuter rails to prevent person-to-person contact to ensure the safety of operating employees.

While Most Museums Remain Closed, 3 Kansas City Penguins Enjoyed a Day of Experiencing Great Works of Art

As social distancing precautions drag on, many Americans are aching to get out of the house and explore the world’s wonders. Earlier this month, one temporarily closed cultural institution received visitors from the Kansas City Zoo: a trio of Humboldt penguins.

On May 6, the three penguins strolled through halls of the the Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art, located in Kansas City, Mo., viewing artworks by Impressionist and Baroque masters.

Julián Zugazagoitia, the director and CEO of the museum, tells TIME that he had expected that they would be most interested in the works by Claude Monet, because they are “soothing” and resemble water. However, the waddling visitors seemed to be most engaged with the Baroque works, including those by Caravaggio, Zugazagoitia says.

“I don’t know what they feel, what it says in their mind,” Zugazagoitia says. “They stop, and look and wonder.”
