    Equipment failure caused a transformer at the Hoover Dam to explode, causing a fire that lasted about a half-hour and sending plumes of black smoke swirling through the air. Crews quickly extinguished the fire Tuesday morning. Doug Hendrix, public affairs specialist for the U.S. Bureau of Reclamation, emphasized that the fire was isolated to the single area, which limited damage to the facility, and that investigators would soon know what caused it. “We’ve got engineers and some of our senior leadership down there taking a look now, also with some inspectors to see exactly what happened,” Hendrix told KTNV in Las Vegas. Hendrix did not respond Wednesday to emails from The Associated Press. WHAT IS HOOVER DAM? Hoover Dam, about 25 miles (40 kilometers) southeast of Las Vegas on the Nevada-Arizona border, is one of the tallest concrete dams in the U.S. at 726 feet (221 meters). It supplies hydroelectric power for about 350,000 homes in Arizona, California and Nevada. To create hydropower, a renewable energy source, water from the Colorado River flows into the dam, then into a pipe,...
    PALO ALTO – One out of every six homes in this leafy birthplace of Silicon Valley has a plug-in car, with more to come. Other homes have heat pumps, induction cook tops and arrays of glistening solar panels that help reduce climate change. Yet yesterday’s electrical grid can’t keep up with tomorrow’s carbon-free ambitions. “We’re in a ‘ramp up’ mode. We won’t hit our goals unless we accelerate,” said Mayor Pat Burt, who drives a plug-in hybrid Mitsubishi Outlander. “But we really don’t have the capacity to do it faster than we’ve been doing it. That’s the crunch.” It is a harbinger of what is to come in other California cities. As Berkeley, San Jose and a growing number of other communities commit to an all-electric future, their transformers and distribution lines are being sorely challenged by the need to deliver much more power. Los Angeles is also proposing to study what is needed to modernize its power grid infrastructure. In Palo Alto, the grid of this entire city was built around the electrical needs of the 1950s, ‘60s and...

    (CNN)The Biden administration is unveiling two new programs, established by the bipartisan infrastructure law, that will provide $20 million worth of rebates to replace old transformers and upgrade electric motor systems, according to the Department of Energy.The draft guidance, which was unveiled Wednesday to solicit public feedback, will help make distribution transformers and electric motor systems more efficient by providing financial support to replace and upgrade aging systems. Roughly 29% of the total power grid load is represented by industrial and commercial electric motors, according to the Department of Energy. "More efficient transformers and electric motor systems will reduce energy use, save companies money, and carry more clean energy to American homes and businesses," Energy Secretary Jennifer Granholm said in a statement. "We're harnessing input across America to strengthen our approach to recharging our nation's infrastructure with the best-available technologies at our disposal while slashing energy bills and combating the climate crisis."The new rebate programs, which are part of the $1.2 trillion infrastructure law passed by Congress last year, will help bolster energy efficiency and resiliency, according to an Energy...

    TRANSFORMERS: Dark of the Moon saw Rosie Huntington-Whiteley as Shia LaBeouf's new love interest. Here's a look at why Megan Fox did not return for the third film. 2Megan Fox is a popular actress and model Why was Megan Fox not in Transformers 3? Released on June 28, 2011, the third Transformers film hit theatres featuring Rosie as the new protagonist woman. At the time of the movie's initial release, Megan's team claimed she had chosen to leave the franchise on her own accord. For the first two live-action Transformers films, Megan was the female lead and Shia's on-screen girlfriend. During an interview with Wonderland in 2009, Megan made comments about Michael Bay - the Transformers director - which reportedly resulted in her departure from the third installment. "He's like Napoleon and he wants to create this insane, infamous mad man reputation," she said at the time, of working with Bay. "He wants to be like Hitler on his sets, and he is. So he's a nightmare to work for but when you get him...
    Right-wing extremists planning terrorist acts are increasingly focusing on the nation's electrical infrastructure, particularly power substations, as a way to foment social chaos. The self-described “death squad” of neo-Nazi ex-Marines who had moved from the East Coast to Idaho had a plan: They would take their high-powered rifles to power substations around the region and target transformers in order to render the stations nonfunctional. They also planned to collect the makings for bombs, then use them to blow up other substations—all in order to “take down the entire regional or coastal power grid and cause chaos for the country.” The FBI, however, arrested them before they could carry it out. That incident, plus a number of others, convinced the Department of Homeland Security to issue an intelligence bulletin this week warning that far-right extremists are preparing to target the nation’s electrical infrastructure with the intent of “wreaking havoc.” The DHS bulletin also warns that extremists "adhering to a range of ideologies will likely continue to plot and encourage physical attacks against electrical infrastructure." The bulletin, first reported by Shannon Vavra...

    Forget about Optimus Prime and Megatron! Swiss experts have developed a four-wheeled robot that can rear up on its hind legs and spin like a performing poodle. Developed by ETH Zürich spin-off Swiss-Mile, the agile bot that can reach speeds of up to 14 mph (23 kph) is the latest iteration of the 'ANYMal' robot concept.  The design — which superficially resembles Boston Dynamics' robot dog, Spot — has previously been shown using its AI to get back up after being kicked over. In a newly-released video, the robot is shown not only performing its standing trick, but also wheeling along and taking ascending and descending steps in its stride.

    BROCKTON (CBS) – The Brockton Fire Department was stretched really thin during the nor’easter early Wednesday, responding to calls for downed trees and wires and two fires at the same time. One of those fires was at a house on Pine Street that went up in flames after transformers exploded. The home is completely charred but everyone escaped safely. “It was scary. It was scary. When I saw it, it was like ‘wow that really happened.’ I felt a little helpless,” Anthony Dent-Deal told WBZ-TV. He left for work around 5:30 a.m. and felt like he stepped into a scene in a movie, with sparks flying and flames roaring as three transformers blew in front of him.

    RICHMOND (KPIX) — After Saturday night’s light rain, thousands of East Bay residents woke up to a power outage Sunday morning and PG&E was scrambling all day to restore electrical service. As it turned out, the outages happened because of how little rain fell, rather than how much. By mid-afternoon, Esther Dominguez had been without power in her Richmond home for more than 12 hours but she doubted it was because of the rain. “It was just sprinkling,” she said. “So, I don’t think that is the reason why the power went off. It has to be something else.” PG&E says that if it had rained harder, there wouldn’t have been so much trouble. Company spokesperson Deanna Contreras said a lot of dust and dirt has built up on the power lines with no way to wash it off. “When the first mist or rain comes along after a long dry spell, it turns that mixture into mud and mud conducts electricity,” she said. “This could damage electrical equipment and cause outages.” It’s called a flash-over and it damaged transformers...
    Steven Caple Jr., director of Transformers: The Rise of the Beasts, referred to the opportunity he will have to command the filming of said project in Peru. Transformers: The Rise of the Beasts it is already in filming. The film, which will be directed by Steven Caple Jr., who did the same with Creed ii, finished its pre-production phase and filming began. In the process, as was public knowledge, the team is located in Peru, where it was previously reported that the tape was going to be in development. Although there is no news about the arrival of the main cast, an important part of the cast has already reached ‘Inca’ soil. It is nothing more and nothing less than the cars that will be part of history. It should be noted that apart from the autobots and decepticons, will enter the scene maximals and the predacons. The latter occurs because the plot will be based, in part, on the series of the 90 ′, Beast wars. Besides, there will be an important human staff. In this regard, the...

    GI Joe: Snake Eyes – 53% was recently released, which is the origin movie of the eponymous character from Hasbros’ popular GI Joe toy franchise. This last film failed to connect with critics and according to the figures it has not managed to connect with audiences either. The reality is that although the other movies in this line of toys have not fared badly, they have not managed to become an unstoppable franchise like Hasbro’s other great intellectual property: Transformers has. We recommend you: Transformers 7: Ron Perlman will be Optimus Primal in the movie The reality is that since the first GI Joe movie came out, fans have dreamed of seeing Snake Eyes and Optimus Prime in the same movie. It is something that makes sense because in comics there have been these types of crossovers between the two franchises for years. In fact, Henry Golding, the actor who brings the lead of the new film to life, spoke in an interview for CinePop (via Comic Book) and cited comics as the reason why he thinks it’s completely logical...
    OAKLAND — A three-alarm structure fire at a vacant warehouse early Saturday morning downed several nearby poles, causing a power outage in the area. No one was injured in the fire, which fully engulfed a 100-by-50-foot warehouse near the intersection of 45th Avenue and East 12th Street in an East Oakland neighborhood filled with auto repair businesses. Responding crews brought the flames under control at 1:47 a.m., battalion chief James Bowron said in a video posted to Oakland Fire Department’s Twitter shortly after crews had put out the flames. Extreme heat from the fire downed three poles and led to “a lot of transformers popping off,” Bowron said in the video. Power had not been restored in the area by 9 a.m. Saturday, said fire department spokesman Michael Hunt. It is unclear from a PG&E outage map exactly how many customers in the area have been affected. Firefighters are still investigating what caused the fire. Eyewitnesses told responding crews that there had been homeless encampment tents lining the sidewalk in front of the warehouse. “Definitely have not pinned down a...

    There is no danger to integrated workshops for fear that many quarterbacks will drop their shores. The logical choice is that physical qualities are not so essential in assessing the ability of these players to lead an entire team full of the highest level athletes. Recently, a pitcher gave himself to the Combine game to prove that he is an even more serious athlete. This is Justin Herbert, the best player of the year. Measurements please At 1.98m tall and weighing 107kg, Herbert is blessed with a physique that is admired by NFL managers and coaches. Tall and strong, thanks to these two features, he has the ability to watch the game above the lines (full of very tall players) and the ability to withstand shocks in the event of dismissal. If he wasn’t considered an extraordinary jig for the NFL, Herbert would be nothing more than a consistent man to ordinary people. At almost 2 meters over 105 kg, it is a “cute baby”.

    The partnership between Hasbro and Paramount has led to two franchises in which the major has deposited an immense faith, some would say that it is foolish. A, G.I. Joehas yet to bear fruit as several films are being developed at the same time, while the other has already confirmed its box office appeal. It is, of course, Transformers, prolonged through five films of Michael Bay and one of Travis knight; this last, Bumblebee, showed its producers that the battle of the Autobots and Decepticons did not have to saturate the public if new angles were found to develop the story, and caused the next steps for the franchise to be much more varied. In this new phase, the announced animation prequel by Josh cooley (fresh from Toy story 4) and a reboot directed by Steven Caple Jr. (Creed ii).

    The Royal Air Force has backed a British firm to develop a new aircraft that can be converted from basic trainer to aggressive fighter by swapping engines and wings. Suffolk based Aeralis was given £200,000 by the RAF to develop its 'modular' two -seater aircraft that will come in one of three variants depending on requirements. The variants have the same fuselage, but by fitting different engines and wings it can be transformed - allowing the RAF to operate with few aircraft in its fleet.  A base version of the aircraft will be used as a trainer for combat exercises, but the modular design means it can be adapted as circumstances change.

    Josh Duhamel celebrates his birthday on November 14, 2020. A bearded, tall and handsome guy, he’s that kind of a lad with whom any girl would want to marry.

Rodin Eckenroth/Getty Images/DreamWorks Pictures/Paramount Pictures In a new interview with Refinery29, Megan Fox spoke about the "bandwagon of absolute toxicity" she suffered when she was a young star. Fox, who is promoting her new action movie "Rogue," said: "I was just stranded in open water on my own for so long. However, that built up so much strength." Fox said that she recently rewatched an old movie of hers that received poor reviews, and "started getting really angry" when she realized she wasn't as bad as the critics made out. "I was like, 'F--- that, why did I live for a decade thinking that I was s--- at something when I was actually pretty decent at it?' That led to this realization that I'd been in a self-imposed prison for so much of my life." Visit Insider's homepage for more stories.

    Transformers: War for Cybertron – Siege, out now, is the first part of a Netflix-exclusive trilogy of Transformers cartoons. The show goes belly-deep into Transformers lore. Sure, everybody knows Optimus Prime and Megatron and Bumblebee and the tape player guy with the cool voice, but Siege transports us to a planet full of robo randos and references, and someone who is in deep on Transformers toys and mythology, I realize it might take some elbow grease to sort through it all. Who’s that green Starscream? What’s Primus? Who the heck is Megatron impaling in that mural in Decepticon headquarters? All these questions (except the last one) are answered in this spoiler-riffic blast through all six episodes of War for Cybertron’s first chapter.

So dire that even Optimus Prime, scion of hope and occasional truck, is getting a bit defeatist. Netflix just dropped the latest trailer for Transformers: War for Cybertron: Siege, the first in a planned three-show series (of six episodes each) it’s developed with Hasbro, Rooster Teeth, and Godzilla: Monster Planet’s Polygon Pictures. Inspired by the recent toylines from Hasbro—named Siege and Earthrise, and to be followed up by a third, currently untitled series—the show depicts re-imagined takes on the first generation of Autobots and Decepticons as we knew them in the beloved Transformers animated show, as they fight for the fate of...
    Throughout every iteration of Transformers, Optimus Prime is an eternal Optimist Prime. If the Autobots can keep fighting for what’s right in the galaxy, defend their home planet and the worlds of others from the Decepticons with every ounce of oil pumping through their combustion engine hearts, then fate will grant them victory. But the Optimus in Transformers: War for Cybertron Trilogy, a new anime-inspired series from Netflix and Rooster Teeth, is gloomy and existential. Maybe all the warring was for nothing. Maybe there’s no beating ol’ Megatron. Image: Netflix/Rooster Teeth “I cannot help but ask myself … is this a hopeless crusade?” While War for Cybertron isn’t going full Jarhead, the new Transformers series has a grit and darkness that seems to lend the drama a level of reality that a billion jagged pixels couldn’t do in live-action. This is war — and it’s intense. In the final trailer for the series, premiering exclusively on News Brig, things aren’t going well for the Autobots and what’s left of...
    Megan Fox released a statement on Monday to address online discussions that erupted after her 2009 interview on "Jimmy Kimmel Live" went viral.  After watching the interview, fans accused director Michael Bay of sexualizing Fox when she was a 15-year-old extra in "Bad Boys II." Though she thanked fans for their support, the actress clarified resurfaced stories about Bay to ensure that people's opinions are "seeded in the facts of the events."  "These specific instances were inconsequential in a long and arduous journey along which I have endured some genuinely harrowing experiences in a ruthlessly misogynistic industry," she wrote.  Fox continued to say that she could list names that "deserve" to be "going viral" for their behavior, but said that she never felt "assaulted or preyed upon" by Bay.  Visit Insider's homepage for more stories.
