A Milwaukee man wiped his blood-covered hands on his hospital room door and the emergency room door windows, according to a police report.

A nurse at the hospital told police Kyle Weisman requested his discharge against medical advice from St. Luke’s South Shore, 5900 S. Lake Drive, on Oct. 26 and once he was signed out he became agitated. The nurse said he received stitches earlier in the day, but he was still bleeding from his hand; she said he was covered in blood.

Weisman reportedly took his hands and rubbed his blood all over his room door and on the emergency-room exit door windows, the report stated. Once outside, Weisman tipped over a garbage can and barricaded the door to the ER with a bench. The report stated he was yelling and screaming as he left heading north on South Lake Drive.

Weisman had been brought to St. Luke’s South Shore by an ambulance and two Milwaukee police officers, the nurse said. While she was treating him, the officers left, the report stated.

After his discharge, Weisman was located in the 5800 block of South Lake Drive with his pants and jacket covered in blood and his left hand bleeding. Police asked if he needed medical attention and he declined.

When asked what happened at the hospital, Weisman told officers he was mad and just wanted to go home.

Weisman had two warrants with the Oak Creek Police Department — one for possession of drug paraphernalia and the other for possession of a controlled substance. He signed a personal-recognizance bond and was also issued a Cudahy municipal citation for disorderly conduct on-site.

Police offered medical treatment and/or a ride home and Weisman declined both so he was sent on his way.

Later, Weisman created a disturbance at McDonald’s, 6163 S. Packard Ave., and was subsequently arrested, the report stated. The report did not say if he was cited or what the arrest was exactly for.

Dining room tables that never go out of style

Many dining rooms are built as off-shoots of the kitchen or living room.

Planning to redecorate your dining room? The focal point of the room, due to its function, is the table. If you’re not sure what kind of table you want to get, you’ve come to the right place. Here let us look at dining room tables that never go out of style, and when you might want to use them. The style, of course, starts with the shape, and there are three shapes that offer timeless popularity

Remember that some tables are convertible – for example, rectangular tables can become square tables, and round tables can become rectangular–with rounded ends. The type of table you choose will be dictated in part by the available space, but also by your goals.

If you have a small dining area

For small areas, a rectangular dining table might simply look too large, even if it actually fits in the space. A square or round table might better suit your needs. The number of people you’d like to sit can help determine what size table you choose. A square or round table tends to look smaller in the room than a rectangular table.

If your dining room is narrow

Many dining rooms are built as off-shoots of the kitchen or living room. For this reason, they may be quite narrow. A round or square table in a narrow room will either look too large or too small. For narrow rooms, a rectangular table is best.

If you want to facilitate conversation

Have you ever sat down at a long table, only to find that you converse with the people on either side of you and across from you, and no one else? In fact, you might not even talk to anyone at the other end of the table unless you need the salt. And if the table is that big, two salt shakers (or more) may be necessary anyway. If you want to get people to talk to one another, a round table is your best bet. Everyone can see others’ faces.In the middle ages, dining tables were often large and round. Maybe this is where the notion of the knights of the round table came from – King Arthur would have been able to see and speak with all of his knights while they dined.

If you want a modern look

For modern, there’s no table shape like a square. The only downside to square tables is that they tend to seat fewer people than the rectangular or round. For a modern every-day look with the option to seat larger groups, a square table that can convert to a rectangle with leaves may be your best option..

Microsoft opens the door to native ARM apps on Windows 10

Chris Velazco/Engadget

ARM-based Windows 10 devices have improved in performance, but the software is another story — without official tools to write native 64-bit ARM apps, it’s been difficult to help these machines reach their potential. That shouldn’t be an issue after this week. Microsoft has released Visual Studio 15.9, which gives developers the tools they need to craft native ARM64 apps. They can submit those apps to the Microsoft Store, too, although they can also release ARM apps elsewhere (or bundle them into releases for other chip architectures) if they’d prefer.

It may take a while before you see these apps arrive in earnest. However, they could help make a more compelling case for ARM-based Windows PCs. Right now, their frequent dependence on emulated x86 apps (not x64) offsets their touted advantages in battery life and portability. While a Snapdragon-based laptop isn’t about to outperform a reasonably quick Core i5 system any time soon, the gap may shrink enough that more people will give the ARM computer a chance..

PPI: Door and Window Material Prices Show a Mixed Bag in October

Prices for many materials used in door, window and glass manufacturing fluctuated in October, according to the latest producer price index (PPI) from the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS). In most cases, indexes are down slightly from the months prior, but higher on a year-over-year basis—by as much as 10 percent in some cases.

The monthly PPI for flat glass in the commodity category is down 0.1 percent from the previous month, and fell 0.1 percent compared to October 2017.

In the industry classification for flat glass manufacturing, the index dropped 0.4 percent from September 2018, but is up 5.6 percent from October 2017. Industry classifications measure “changes in prices received for the industry’s output sold outside the industry (that is, its net output).”

Prices for fabricated, structural metal products grew 0.7 percent from the previous month, and are up 8.8 percent from October 2017. Ornamental and architectural metal product manufacturing, in the industry category, saw no change from September, and is up 10.3 percent from this time last year.

The PPI for metal door and window manufacturing is down 0.7 percent from September, and is up 7.5 percent from October 2017’s report.

Prices for wood window units remained the same for the third month in a row, but are up 4 percent compared to October 2017. Prices for wood doors for interior and exterior applications also remained the same. They’re up 8.7 percent since last year.

The price of thermoplastic resins and plastic materials rose 0.2 percent in October and is up 4.6 percent from last year. Fiberglass plastic product prices are down 0.1 percent since last month and are 4 percent higher for the year.

The cost of builders’ hardware, which includes hardware used in doors and windows, fell 0.3 percent from the previous month. That price is 3.3 percent higher than in October 2017.

Microsoft opens the door to better Windows on ARM apps

Microsoft is removing one of the big limitations of Windows on ARM this week by allowing developers to create 64-bit ARM (ARM64) apps. Developers will be able to recompile existing win32 or Universal Windows Apps to run natively on Windows 10 on ARM hardware. That means 64-bit app performance should get a lot better, as long as developers take the time to recompile.

Microsoft is now relying on developers to use its tools to improve its Windows on ARM efforts. That’s a situation the software giant has found itself in before, relying on developers to create Universal Windows Apps for Windows 8, Windows 10, and Windows Phone apps for a variety of new touch-based hardware. It’s hard to say whether 64-bit app support will really help move Windows on ARM into the mainstream, but it’s certainly laying the ground work for a bigger push by Microsoft.

Windows on ARM has been progressing steadily over the past year, but performance and app compatibility are still big issues. Windows 10 includes an emulation layer for x86 apps running on ARM processors, and it’s the way you’ll experience most desktop apps on one of these machines at the moment. Emulation is never ideal, so if developers recompile their apps to run natively on Windows on ARM then we’ll start to see just how well these laptops can compare to traditional Intel-powered devices.

As Intel continues to struggle with its 10nm processors, competition from ARM processors has closed the performance gap significantly. Apple compares its latest iPad Pro gaming performance to an Xbox One S console, and benchmarks show it’s competitive at CPU tasks. ARM is also promising laptop-level performance from its Cortex-A76 chip design in 2019. The chip design company has been claiming that ARM processors next year will compete with Intel’s Kaby Lake range on laptops.

New Windows on ARM devices have started appearing recently, including Lenovo’s Yoga C630 and Samsung’s Galaxy Book 2. Both are powered by Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 850, and have phenomenal battery life. Microsoft has not yet launched a modern ARM-powered Surface. Recent reports suggest the company was considering ARM for the Surface Go, but Intel reportedly intervened and petitioned Microsoft to choose its Pentium Gold processors.

Senior center where rape reported installs jams on doors, windows

“Saturday they came over here and closed these doors and put these boards in there. They are screwed in there, the fern strip, which means I can’t open this door to get out,” Bender said.

Bender has only lived at Brookdale Atrium Way for a few months. He said one of the reasons he chose the facility was the unit’s floor plan and patio on the ground level.

“I use it all the time. That’s my car parked right there. To get to my car now, I have to go all the way down to the end of the building and all the way back,” Bender said.

It’s not just the sliding glass door being closed off that has him upset.

“All these windows here have boards like this, screwed in. I can’t open this window. If I tried it, it only goes so far. That’s it. I consider this a fire exit,” said Bender.

Fire is the biggest concern for him.

“I have four exits to this apartment, three of them are blocked,” Bender said.

Bender’s son, Michael, called News4Jax after his dad notified him about the windows and doors.

“I am very concerned. In fact,  I have been talking with him, since seeing your article, about finding a new place for him to live,” Michael Bender said. “In my mind, if something happens here he has no way of getting out. He only has the front door, and if there is a fire in the hall, then he is stuck and there is nowhere else he can go. And the windows, he can’t even open those to crawl out.”

Instead of jams, both father and son have other suggestions to remedy the situation.

“A front gate, swipe in, swipe out. Cameras on all the doors that are around the building,” Michael Bender said.
