  • Reynoldsburg, like other urban centers within the city and throughout the country, is receiving repeated complaints about excessive vehicle noise. Numerous noise complaints have come in through city councillors, town hall meetings, in the media and the public calling in on the police complaint line.

    Loud and excessive noise can be characterized as noise that becomes a nuisance to the general public, taking into consideration the nature, location, time and proximity of the source to residents and members of the public. An example of this would include a loud auto stereo or car, truck or motorcycle exhaust emitting sound to the extent it disturbs patrons at a café, nearby residents or other motorists on the roadway.
    Loud and excessive noise is now being addressed as a community disorder issue in Reynoldsburg. Traffic and Patrol members are conducting an enforcement campaign in an effort to crack down on offenders.

    If operated normally, most original or equipment in any vehicle should not emit excessive noise. Check the equipment that you do have to ensure your exhaust system does not emit excessive noise through a widened outlet that amplifies the noise. Also ensure that your system is equipped with baffles. Have consideration for those around you and avoid aggressive use of your equipment.

    Fines for Violation
    The EPS will charge violators at three benchmark noise levels tested with the motorcycle stationary.:

    Violators in excess of 92 dbA at idle for all motorcycles
    Violators in excess of 96 dbA at 2000 rpm for motorcycles having less than 3 cylinders or more than 4 cylinders
    Violators in excess of 100 dbA at 5000 rpm for motorcycles with 3 or 4 cylinders.

    The fine for violation of this bylaw is $250.00 for first time offenders. Maximum fine is $10,000 and may also include confiscation of vehicle.

    Sections of the Traffic Safety Act can also be used when dealing with excessive noise.

    The Founding Fathers never meant for the countries finances to be finded by debt ceiling increases. The Senate refused to pass budgets and appropriation bills from the House. Harry Reid and the Democrat Senate also failed to pass a budget in 2010 for 2011 when Democrats had control of House and Senate.

    HOTMODEL, how much does Obama pay you to make pro-liberal arguments on the stock boards? Obamacare is an atrocity and certainly non-essential. When the democrats lose their majority in the Senate, Obamacare will be toast.

  • I saw article about Harvard students cheating. Well I think cheating is everywhere.
    When I went to Devry,
    We copied homeworks and the FA's (helpers) checked them off.
    During lab class, we were supposed to get our electronic circuits during lab to work and the instructor or FA person would sign the lab sheet as proof we made progress but not have to finish cause they didnt want to stay late. Once we had signature, we copied lab reports from each other especially from those who had the best results. We turned them in and got the best grades. We all did some of the lab reports but each actually did maybe 2 out of 16 because about a dozen of us copied from each other. It was a community effort, lol.

    We found out the professors gave the same tests over again each trimester, so we knew fellow students in same degree program but ahead of us and copied their old tests and answers. We just memorize those answers and most of the time was the same exact test so we often got 100% scores.

    Through the years I talked with work colleages from other colleges like State University of New York (SUNY), Cornell, California State and they said cheating is just as bad there. The students with the highest GPAs are likely the cheaters and got considered first for jobs. It's a dog eat dog world. I think this is why some C grade students end up suceeeding big later on because they actually learned something during college.

    So what. We don t want to share your habit.

  • According to Stripes publication:
    Citing a Food and Drug Administration test that found some brands of electronic cigarettes contain potentially toxic chemicals, the Air Force surgeon general’s office last week categorized them as “tobacco products,” and thus prohibits their use in most Air Force facilities. Last month, leaders at Marine Corps Base Quantico banned the products in their facilities.

  • Would be a good idea if we did the same especially when military customers visit our facilities.

    This is out of Stripes:
    The military might want its troops to quit smoking, just not by using electronic cigarettes.

    In recent weeks, the Air Force and at least one Marine base banned the use of the smokeless gadgets from the workplace.

    Also known as e-cigarettes, the devices came onto the scene about six years ago as a smokeless alternative to the real thing. But instead of needing a match to get started, e-cigs are battery-operated devices that contain a nicotine-filled cartridge, which is delivered to the user as a vapor.

  • Silence that bloody thing! is something you commonly hear. The harley loud pipoe fad tends to offend much more than it attracts.Generally it is wise to avoid leaving parked bikes unattended while in town due to widespread vandalism. I know a shop owner in lambeth part of London who has a wheel restraining device made for motorcycles which he uses on harleys which illegally park in front of his business. He clamps it on and calls the police to impound the bike from his section of the sidewalk. he said only does to harleys with a muffler problem because it disturbs his guests.

  • For screwing up a design and lying about doing research to elliminate risk before wasting company money and time to get the unit built. From my experience he had a very abrasive personality and treated coworkers of other departments unprofessionaly and disrespectfully. Actually he was part of a group of ex-military folks who worked in the same department with nearly equally poor people-skills. So in my opinion they need to can a few more and not hire any more ex-military. There are useless.

  • New England Patriots owner Robert Kraft revealed the real story behind a 2005 meeting with Vladimir Putin, during which the Russian president pocketed his Super Bowl ring, worth more than $25,000. Kraft, at the time, claimed the diamond-encrusted bauble was a gift, but he now admits Putin stole it, and the White House intervened when he demanded it back.

    Kraft explained the incident happened while Sandy Weill and other business execs were in St. Petersburg. “I took out the ring and showed it to [Putin], and he put it on and he goes, ‘I can kill someone with this ring,’ ” Kraft told the crowd at Carnegie Hall’s Medal of Excellence gala at the Waldorf-Astoria.“I put my hand out and he put it in his pocket, and three KGB guys got around him and walked out.”

  • Now I do not work for Boeing, but my opinion from personal on-the-job experience is.... if you want to preserve your current engineering team's moral, consider NOT hiring ex-military personnel. Horrible attitude, disrespectful to coworkers and customers, unprofessional behavior, unwillingness to follow procedures, poor workmanship, and refusal to collaborate with other team members seem engraved in the military culture. When there was a fight or major disagreement where I work, one of the few ex-military employees seems to always be part of it. For an example, a recent fight erruped after a particular exmilitary engineer exploded in a tirade of foul language and namecalling towards our QA person after he simply requested that the engineer add a few notes in his drawing to be more clear to manufacturing. The ex-military engineer has demonstrated poor behavior towards the QA and others numerous times but HR and management ignores taking any action against it. (his direct manager who refuses to take action is also ex-military - now how suprising is that?) I respect the military and what they do, but it seems to me that they dont mix well within a workplace of civilians.

  • Employees with military backgrounds often have difficulty getting along with team members. From experience I find them difficult to work with as they tend to have a habit of doing things their own unprofessional way while ignoring official procedures. They simply are not team players. For example not long ago, an ex-military engineer asked the QA if he "went to #$%$ hole school" just because the QA reccomended that he should add some info to his drawing so that manufacturing had a clearer understanding of the engineer's instructions. How does an employee report this clearly abuse behavior to HR without getting in trouble? We have another ex-military employee who has similar social issues.Again, please stop hiring ex-military folks.

    I have nothing against the military but I feel you military types should just stay in the military. Your general poor attitude and incompetance disqualifies you for civilian positions. In order to continue churning out innovative and quality products, corporate culture and moral need to be preserved. Hiring complete a__holes like yourself defeats that purpose.

    Yes and that's another good example of lack of intellect showing with harley riders. Most of the time, I think helmets save lives and I always wear mine. Even if decapitated, the helmet still protects the appearance of the head . I dont want my head ruined because at my funeral, my twisted relatives would likely substitute it with a mellon with smiley face drawn on with magic marker.

    Not sure where you're getting your info from . I dont know what percentage of parts are foreign but well known fact is that companies outsource to other countries to get things made. Makes me freaking mad any american company would do this but happening everywhere, even hersheys chocolate is being made overseas. So I bet you dollars to doughnuts that harleys have more foreign parts (and all other so called american products) than you realize.

    Cant argue with facts. A new harley is very loud and does not sound to be running right as you push off the showroom floor. #$%$ bikes are quiet and make the rider seem much more intelligent than the loud biker. Chicks pick intelligence and wealth guys over the loud stupid and broke guys. True or not, that's the impression your noisy bike is telling everyone about you.

    Some saleman at the harley dealership suckered you into buying " piece of history". Now that's a good one. You financed 30 thousand on probably a 15% loan and a piece of #$%$ that sounds like its struggling to stay running. Now get yourself over to the Honda dealership and pick yourself out a nice bike like the 2013 Honda Goldwing. People would look up at you as if you had style, class and intellect
