Many times stress is the result of things left unresolved, like work projects, medical visits, paperwork and many other concerns. These tasks can hang your head week after week, building up stress without even realizing it.

Make a list of all the small things that have piled up, then come up with a time line to make them disappear. By catching up and completing these, you will feel in better control.

* Propylene Recall

The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission announced a voluntary recall of propylene containing compressed gas cylinders that are used for soldering, brazing, cutting and welding. They contain 14.1 oz Map-Pro, 14.1 oz Propylene or 16 oz MAPP (Methyl Acetylene Propadiene Stabilized). The cylinders are approximately 3” in diameter and 11” tall and are either yellow or black in color. They were sold alone and in kits that include a torch and a cylinder. To assist you in identifying whether you have such cylinders in your possession, please refer to the below images of the cylinders in question, including the kit. At issue is the seal on the cylinders that can leak after torches or other fuel consuming equipment are disconnected from them, posing a fire hazard. In the event you possess any of these cylinders or the kit please follow the instructions outlined in the CPSC notice by clicking on this link. Contact Lucas Brandt (lb96 or 2697) with any questions you may have.

* Baseball Ends Season After Redbirds Rally, 5-4, in 10

The University of Evansville baseball team was three outs away from advancing to another tournament game, as the Aces led 4-3 in the top of the ninth. However, Matt Mirabal’s RBI double to left-centerfield forced extra innings and in the 10th, Chad Hinshaw belted his second home run in as many at-bats, representing the winning run, as the Illinois State University Redbirds knocked Evansville out of the 2012 State Farm Missouri Valley Conference Tournament by a score of 5-4.

The Aces’ young squad finished the season with a 32-27 overall record.
