Dallastown man facing felony charges after keeping money for incomplete construction jobs

Dallastown man facing felony charges after keeping money for incomplete construction jobs LANCASTER COUNTY, Pa. — A Dallastown man is facing felony charges after he failed to complete construction jobs and then kept the money. Police say Corey Burns, 34, was given a check in the amount of $4,493.00 to purchase materials for a construction job. He allegedly never did the job and he didn’t return the money. Burns was questioned by police and he admitted his involvement, according to authorities. A criminal complaint was filed and an arrest warrant was obtained in April. Burns surrendered to Magisterial District Judge Mary M. Sponaugle’s office on June 19. He was arraigned and released on bail, and a preliminary hearing is currently pending.

I'm creating a game application from scratch with xcode for iOS , and I've use the OpenGL Game projet template to create mine. I've searched a lot in the past few days, but I can't find any tutorials or example as to how I would load 3 D model (via .obj files) in my Also, my 3 D models are created using blender.

Today, Procore, a construction software company, announced Procore BIM (Building Information Modeling), a new tool that takes advantage of Apple hardware advances to bring the 3D construction model to iOS.

Dave McCool, senior product manager at Procore, says that architects and engineers have been working with 3D models of complex buildings for years on desktop computers and laptops, but these models never made it into the hands of the tradespeople actually working on the building. This forced them to make trips to the job site office to see the big picture whenever they ran into issues, a process that was inefficient and costly.

Body found at Boston construction site, state police say

Body found at Boston construction site, state police say Massachusetts state police have confirmed a dead body was found at a construction site in South Boston on Sunday. The body was found at 425 Summer St. and state police do not know whether the body is that of a construction worker or how the person got there. A large state police presence was seen at the construction site. WCVB has reached out to the Occupational Safety and Health Administration, but has not heard back at this time. NewsCenter 5 will have more information once it becomes available.

The up-and-coming cloud application startup is upending how work gets done on construction jobs, where pens and clipboards still rule.

What Procore has done is created a 3D model that corresponds to a virtual version of the 2D floor plan and runs on an iOS device. Touching a space on the floor plan, opens a corresponding spot in the 3D model. What's more, Procore has created a video game-like experience, so that contractors can use a virtual joystick to move around a 3D representation of the building, or they can use gestures to move around the rendering.

The app has been designed so that it can run on an iPhone 7, but for optimal performance, Procore recommends using an iPad Pro. The software takes advantage of Apple Metal, which gives developers "near direct" access to the GPU running on these devices. This ability to tap into GPU power, speeds up performance and allows this level of sophisticated rendering quickly on iOS devices.

McCool says that this enables trades people to find the particular area on the drawing where their part of the project needs to go much more easily and intuitively, whether it's wiring, ductwork or plumbing. As he pointed out, it can get crowded in the space above a ceiling or inside a utility  room, and the various trades teams need to work together to make sure they are putting their parts in the correct spot. Working with this tool helps make that placement crystal clear.

It's essentially been designed to gamify the experience in order to help tradespeople who aren't necessarily technically savvy to operate the tool themselves and find their way around a drawing in 3D, while reducing the number of trips to the office to have a discussion with the architects or engineers to resolve issues.

This is the latest tool from a company that has been producing construction software since 2002. As a company spokesperson said, early on the company founder had to wire routers on the site to allow workers to use the earliest versions. Today, it offers a range of construction software to track financials, project, labor and safety management information.

Procore BIM will be available starting next month.

Fresh report brings news about Apple’s iPhone 11 release schedule.
A new report says Apple will announce three new iPhone 11 models in September, and that's hardly surprising. After all, Apple has been announcing new iPhones in mid-September for years now and we've seen the iPhone 11 models leak plenty of times already. By the end of September, those new iPhones should hit store shelves and ship to your door if you preorder online. However, for two years in a row now, Apple failed to ship at least one of its new devices on time. With the iPhone 11 however, things should get back to normal.
