The one-hour documentary tells the stories of four autistic adults — James, Jeanette, Wendy and Akash — who get together at the autism social picnic, stories about love, family, work and friendship. James, Jeanette, Wendy and Akash share with the audience their difficulties with perception, empathy, emotion, and the practicalities of daily life and open the door into a world that has often been described as unreachable. Beyond the notions of the inaccessible autistic child or the autistic savant there is the question:
Inspection, Use and Maintenance Inspection of Ladder Ladders need to be inspected by a qualified person for visible defects before each use. While in use, a ladder may go through conditions that may impact its integrity. A ladder with compromised integrity will not be safe for use.
General Inspection Employees should conduct inspections for general ladder safety for all portable ladder types by checking the followings: Ladders should not have any damage, lack of structural integrity, missing components or loose parts Warning Damaged or worn ladders should be destroyed.
The steps or rungs must be tight and secure to the side rails. All hardware and fittings need to be properly and securely attached.
Movable parts must be tested to see that they operate without binding or without too much free play. All labels should be intact and readable. Ladders shall be free of oil, grease, or slippery materials.
A ladder that has been exposed to fire or strong chemicals should be discarded. All accessories such as leg levelers, paint shelves, stand-off shelves, etc.
The ladder base shall be placed on a secure and level footing. When necessary, ladder levelers shall be used to achieve equal rail support on uneven surfaces.
The ladder base must have the slip resistant material. While inspecting extensions ladders you need to make sure that: Ropes and pulleys are in good condition.
Ladder extension locks move freely and lock correctly Rung locks are on the rails of the top section to ensure the top section will not fall.
Extension guide brackets are secure and in place Additional inspection In addition to the general inspection elements mentioned above, there are ladder type specific elements that also need to be inspected.
Do not use the ladder if you find any of the ladder-specific conditions listed below present in the type of ladder you are inspecting. For metal ladders, also check for the followings: For wooden ladders also inspect the followings: When using a ladder in a crowded area, erect warning signs or barricades to guide traffic away from the foot of the ladder.
If this is not possible, have someone hold and guard the bottom of the ladder. Rest the base of ladder on a spot away from hallways, passageways, doorways, driveways or heavy traffic areas.
Never set up a ladder in front of a door unless the door is locked or a guard is posted. Rest the base of ladders on firm, level, dry, non slippery surfaces.
If one foot sits in a low spot, build up the surface with firm material or use leg levelers or mudsills when necessary to provide firm support.On this day 47 years ago, The Beatles made their first live American television appearance on The Ed Sullivan Show.

Alone in a Crowded Room is a warm, intimate, moving and quietly challenging film about a condition that is usually either sensationalised or marginalised. Writer/Director Lucy Paplinska filmed the documentary over a period of four years, during which she developed .
I guess the single [Rooms on Fire] is about when you're in a crowded room and you see a kind of person and your heart goes, 'Wow!' The whole world seems to be ablaze at that particular moment. After the boats were crowded, they would hold on to them so that they could not leave the shore.
The afternoon is far advanced—the parks and public drives are crowded. Production Story. Lucy Paplinska’s interest in making Alone in a Crowded Room was sparked by her father’s research into Early Intervention in the field of autism. She first discussed the project with co-producer Lisa Horler in while they were both directing episodes of an ABC TV Series Family Story.
I know what it feels like. Everyone does really. You can have piles of friends and be alone. You can have a loving family and be alone. You can be alone in a room full of people.
