AccuWeather says more rounds of cool air and occasional showers are in store for the northeastern United States ahead of a surge of warmth around the middle of June.  While cool weather fans may revel at the pattern, hot weather enthusiasts may be reaching for blankets and long sleeves over the next week or so.  The jet stream is forecast to dip across the Northeast until nearly the end of next week. This will cause cool days to far outnumber warm ones.  The vast majority of the time will be free of rain, and when it does rain, it will be more of a nuisance with sporadic showers and a locally heavy thunderstorm.

 

University City Science Center of Philadelphia has been selected as one of eight accelerators in the nation by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) to drive innovation in lifesaving medical technologies.  Accelerators scout innovative technologies and products that can be developed to solve healthcare challenges that extend beyond traditional vaccine and drug development.  A new HHS unit called DRIVe – part of the Biomedical Advanced Research and Development Authority (BARDA) – will oversee the accelerator network and is recruiting a nonprofit partner that can work with private investors to fund innovative technologies and products to solve systemic health security challenges.  University City Science Center received a $100,000 DRIVe grant to serve as an accelerator.

 

The American Red Cross will be in Juniata County for a blood drive today and tomorrow.  The Bloodmobile will be at the Port Royal Methodist Church on Fifth Street both days from 1:30 pm to 7:00 pm.
