Storage_Wars

We are pleased to announce that one of our Ludlum Measurements, Inc. instruments guest starred in a recent episode of A&E’s “Storage Wars” reality program. The Model 177 Benchtop Counter, equipped with two external detectors, was discovered amid the jumbled boxes of random goods from a California storage unit. Because the rent for the unit had been left unpaid for 3 months, the contents were auctioned off in a single-lot, cash-only sale, as permitted by California law. The show continues with the purchaser reviewing the heretofore uninspected contents, estimating approximate dollar values for the individual items, and calculating the projected profits from their eventual resale. The Storage Wars’ season 7, episode 12, titled “High Stakes and Low Blows” showed Mr. Ivy Calvin outbidding the competition and winning one such auction.

April: National Records and Information Management Month

Posted by Larissa Place on Tue, Apr 21, 2015 @ 11:04 AM

March comes in like a lion and goes out like a lamb according to the proverb. But what does the month of April offer us? April 15th is Tax Day in the United States, the deadline for filing income tax returns to the federal government. Other April observances celebrate foods such as pecans, garlic, cheeseballs, and caramel popcorn. More globally-oriented topics are Russian cosmonauts, fun at work day, and world health. Some observances are month-long, including national poetry and poetry writing, jazz appreciation, Arab-American heritage, and stress awareness. In our industry we naturally pay special attention to April being designated National Records and Information Management Month.
