Windsor Central High School custodian explains changes made for school year

first_img“We clean first, then sanitize to make sure everything is disinfected,” Miller said. “Just thank you,” Klumpp said. “Thank you for all of the hard work. The extra time. The extra hours. You can really tell he takes his job to heart.” WINDSOR (WBNG) — Today is Custodial Workers’ Recognition Day and one Windsor Central High School custodian explains the changes he and his team made to the school for the year. Even with the changes his staff has made, Miller says he’s still optimistic about the school year.  Miller and his staff are sanitizing high traffic areas with spray bottles with vital oxide two to three times a day. Miller says they had a plan in place over the summer but had to make a few adjustments. Klumpp says they spent about two weeks prepping for the first day. If Klumpp could say anything to Miller… “At first it was very stressful, but the district is a great one,” Steve Miller, head custodian, said. “We came out with a good schedule.” “You can disinfect and sanitize all areas,” Miller said. “It’s portable.” “When they open the door, touching their hands on everything,” Miller said. “Signing in with pencils, pens, computers.” Over the summer, with the help of Chris Klumpp, associate principal, Miller put directional arrows on the floors and hand sanitation stations in every classroom. “As of now, I think all of the kids are happy,” Miller said. “Staff’s happy. Everything is running pretty smooth.” “It’s kind of all hands on deck,” Klumpp said. “The reality is if everybody wasn’t getting their hands dirty there’s no way we were able to be open on time.” Miller and his staff are working day and night disinfecting and cleaning Windsor Central High School.last_img read more

Binghamton University professor creates prototype tool to detect lung cancer

first_imgVESTAL (WBNG) — Chuan-Jian “CJ” Zhong, a chemistry Professor at Binghamton University, has created a device to help detect lung cancer just by breathing into a tube. He compares the device to a breathalyzer saying that, “you blow into the tube and the breath biomarkers interact with the sensor interface, producing an electrical signal instantaneously that provides diagnostic information of your breath biomarkers, related to lung cancer,” and then the data appears on the screen. Zhong, a specialist in sensors, said he is still in the early stages of development but adds that he collaborated with a Broome County oncologist, where some people were screened using the prototype.center_img He is now gearing up to do the next phase of trials which are clinical tests with large groups of people to determine the effectiveness of the device.last_img read more
