Coming Sunday: a 4,300-square-foot pirate exhibit at Tampa Bay History Center Newspaper icon Email Plus Outline icon

Pity the area schoolchildren who took class trips to the Tampa Bay History Center in recent weeks. Those landlubbers missed out on piracy fun. Sure, the kids enjoyed learning about local history through the museum’s interactive exhibits, which include a cattle drive ride-along. But if the schools had planned the trips just a little bit later in the year, their students could have learned whether — yo ho, yo ho — the pirate life is for them. This Sunday, the Tampa Bay History Center will open its new permanent display, “Treasure Seekers: Conquistadors, Pirates & Shipwrecks.” And to paraphrase the swashbucklers who once sailed the Caribbean that the exhibit details, “Arr, blimey, shiver me timbers!” “We’ve asked visitors and others in the community what do you want in the history center we don’t already show,” said Rodney Kite-Powell, curator of the history center, while giving the Tampa Bay Times a preview last week. •?A life-sized, 60-foot, stem-to-stern replica of a small, fast pirate sloop complete with swivel guns, cannons, holograms of pirates on board and, projected above, the night sky’s constellations buccan...

An activist group says it has gathered 40,000 signatures demanding Wasserman Schultz’ ouster and today, television viewers in her South Florida district are seeing TV and cable ads that include a recent news clip in which she calls payday lending “unfortunately … necessary.”    “What’s truly ‘unfortunate’ is that Debbie Wasserman Schultz is still refusing to put her constituents and millions of vulnerable Americans ahead of an industry that has given her more than $68,000 in campaign cash,” said Karl Frisch, executive director of Allied Progress, a liberal advocacy group.  Opponents of the measure Wasserman Schultz is co-sponsoring say it would encourage states to adopt the “Florida ...

After three days of starting flights, it took just one more day of play to determine a champion with the 30-minute levels. India’s Abhinav Iyer dominated his final table en route to his first career bracelet and the top prize of $565,346. In addition to the money, Iyer also earned 1,200 Card Player Player of the Year points for his win. The POY is sponsored by Global Poker. “I won crucial pots at the right time,” Iyer told WSOP reporters. “Luckily my table on day 1 was pretty good, and also my table starting today was relatively good. I came into [today] with over 50 big blinds so I knew I could mane...

The original in the premium segment of small cars has reached its 60th birthday – but it is even younger than ever. It was sixty years ago, to be precise on 26 August 1959, that British Motor Corporation (BMC) proudly revealed the result of their development activities in creating a new, revolutionary compact car. The original in the premium segment of small cars has reached its 60th birthday – but it is even younger than ever. It was sixty years ago, to be precise on 26 August 1959, that British Motor Corporation (BMC) proudly revealed the result of their development activities in creating a new, revolutionary compact car. And indeed, the public right from the start were able to admire no less than two new models: The Morris Mini-Minor and the Austin Seven. This double premiere of two almost identical four-seaters was of course attributable at the time to the broad range of brands offered by BMC in the market, but it was also of very symbolic nature. Lots of space inside with minimum dimensions outside, seats for four passengers, impeccable driving characteristics, superior fuel economy, and a very affordable price – precisely this was the brief the creator of the Mini, automot...

As well as efficiency and performance, portable power – generators, compressors and lighting towers – also

As well as efficiency and performance, portable power – generators, compressors and lighting towers – also improve working conditions on site and can bring down the cost of the whole project. Advances in construction equipment technology mean that manufacturers can offer some excellent solutions to power needs, while keeping the design as lightweight as possible and easy to operate. US-based portable power manufacturer Chicago Pneumatic, part of Atlas Copco, recently extended its range of electrically-powered light towers with the launch of two new models – the CPLT V2 LED and CPLT V3 LED. Both can be integrated with the company’s CPPG inverter generator, which provides a reliable source of AC power below 3kW. The manufacturer said this provided reliable illumination for remote worksites, giving contractors access to a cordless, lightweight and flexible solution to site lighting. The new models can also be plugged into an electric power source, such as an outlet. It comes with four 160W LED bulbs that provide an average coverage of 2,000 to 3,000m2 depending on the model. It comes with a 5.5m manual vertical mast, a robust canopy to protect the light tower in varying weather con...
