Sept. 11 – I got this emailed to me. I have an Allis Chalmers Model 66 All-Crop Harvester. We have used it the last 6 years or so to harvest our small grain crops of a few acres. This machine works and runs well. We are moving out of the country and cannot take this with us. I need to sell this machine and it would be a travesty if some scrap iron guy purchased this as scrap. I am hoping that I can find a good home for this. I would consider any reasonable offer.

If you are able to spread the word to find a good buyer and home, it would be greatly appreciated. Anyone interested can email or call me at home (leave message). I am located near Glenwood MN.

Atomic Force Microscopy (AFM)

Atomic Force Microscopy (AFM)

Atomic Force Microscopy

Description of Technique

Atomic Force Microscopy (AFM) is a form of scanning probe microscopy (SPM) where a small probe is scanned across the sample to obtain information about the sample’s surface. The information gathered from the probe’s interaction with the surface can be as simple as physical topography or as diverse as measurements of the material’s physical, magnetic, or chemical properties. These data are collected as the probe is scanned in a raster pattern across the sample to form a map of the measured property relative to the X-Y position. Thus, the AFM microscopic image shows the variation in the measured property, e.g. height or magnetic domains, over the area imaged.

The AFM probe has a very sharp tip, often less than 100 Å diameter, at the end of a small cantilever beam. The probe is attached to a piezoelectric scanner tube, which scans the probe across a selected area of the sample surface. Interatomic forces between the probe tip and the sample surface cause the cantilever to deflect as the sample’s surface topography (or other properties) changes. A laser light reflected from the back of the cantilever measures the deflection of the cantilever. This information is fed back to a computer, which generates a map of topography and/or other properties of interest. Areas as large as about 100 µm square to less than 100 nm square can be imaged.

Analytical Information

Contact Mode AFM – The AFM probe is scanned at a constant force between the probe and the sample surface to obtain a 3D topographical map. When the probe cantilever is deflected by topographical changes, the scanner adjusts the probe position to restore the original cantilever deflection. The scanner position information is used to create a topographical image. Lateral resolution of

Intermittent Contact (Tapping Mode) AFM – In this mode, the probe cantilever is oscillated at or near its resonant frequency. The oscillating probe tip is then scanned at a height where it barely touches or “taps” the sample surface. The system monitors the probe position and vibrational amplitude to obtain topographical and other property information. Accurate topographical information can be obtained even for very fragile surfaces. Optimum resolution is about 50 Å lateral and

Lateral Force Microscopy – This mode measures the lateral deflection of the probe cantilever as the tip is scanned across the sample in contact mode. Changes in lateral deflection represent relative frictional forces between the probe tip and the sample surface.

Phase Detection Microscopy – With the system operating in Tapping mode, the cantilever oscillation is damped by interaction with the sample surface. The phase lag between the drive signal and actual cantilever oscillation is monitored. Changes in the phase lag indicate variations in the surface properties, such as viscoelasticity or mechanical properties. A phase image, typically collected simultaneously with a topographical image, maps the local changes in material’s physical or mechanical properties.

Magnetic Force Microscopy – This mode images local variations in the magnetic forces at the sample’s surface. The probe tip is coated with a thin film of ferromagnetic material that will react to the magnetic domains on the sample surface. The magnetic forces between the tip and the sample are measured by monitoring cantilever deflection while the probe is scanned at a constant height above the surface. A map of the forces shows the sample’s natural or applied magnetic domain structure.


Image Analysis – Since the images are collected in digital format, a wide variety of image manipulations are available for AFM data. Quantitative topographical information, such as lateral spacing, step height, and surface roughness are readily obtained. Images can be presented as two-dimensional or three-dimensional representations in hard copy or as digital image files for electronic transfer and publication.

Nanoindentation – A specialized probe tip is forced into the sample surface to obtain a measure of the material’s mechanical properties in regions as small as a few nanometers. (See the Handbook section on Nanoindentation Hardness Testing .)

Sample Requirements

No sample preparation is typically required. Samples can be imaged in air or liquid. Sample height is limited to about 1.5 inches. Areas up to 8 inches in diameter can be fully traversed without repositioning. Larger samples can be fixtured for imaging within a limited area. Total surface roughness in the image area should not exceed about 6 µm.

Typical Applications

  • 3-dimensional topography of IC device
  • Roughness measurements for chemical mechanical polishing
  • Analysis of microscopic phase distribution in polymers
  • Mechanical and physical property measurements for thin films
  • Imaging magnetic domains on digital storage media
  • Imaging of submicron phases in metals
  • Defect imaging in IC failure analysis
  • Microscopic imaging of fragile biological samples
  • Metrology for compact disk stampers

Midwest Palliative & Hospice CareCenter

Midwest Palliative Hospice CareCenter. a nationally recognized industry leader, is the preferred hospice partner for Northwestern Memorial Hospital. Referrals can be made by calling 847.HOSPICE (847.467.7423). Onsite offices at Northwestern enable their staff to visit the same day, and talk with patients and families about considering hospice as an option for care.

Team members can coordinate the transition to home hospice, nursing home or hospital, or at their two state-of-the-art hospice centers The Marshak Family Hospice Pavilion or the Hospice Suite at Northwest Community Hospital. Hospice care can be delivered alongside treatments meant to improve quality of life. Comprehensive hospice care includes family support, whole-person medical and psychosocial care, facilitation of meaningful experiences, as well as medications and medical equipment.

Midwest CareCenter works with Northwestern physicians to provide grief support and Palliative Care Services.

Emphasizing pain relief, symptom management, and psychosocial support, hospice may be a care option that is right for anyone facing a serious prognosis. Hospice begins when a seriously ill person chooses care options focused on comfort and symptom relief rather than on a cure.

At the center of hospice care is the belief that each of us has the opportunity and right to:

  • Live with dignity, free of pain and other distressing symptoms.
  • Connect with those that we love in meaningful ways.
  • Know that our loved ones will be supported by the professional hospice team.

Midwest CareCenter hospice teams provide a compassionate presence and specialized knowledge to our patients and their families as death draws nearer. Each team member including your own doctor contributes a distinct perspective and depth of experience as they care for you. And we remain sensitive to your personal, cultural and religious values, beliefs and practices.

Horizon, JourneyCare and Midwest Merge to Enhance Patient Care

Three of Illinois’ leading palliative and end-of-life care providers announced today they have entered into an agreement to merge into one agency which, when fully integrated, will become one of the premier non-profit palliative and end-of-life care providers in the state.

Under the terms of the agreement, Chicago-based Horizon Hospice Palliative Care, Barrington-based JourneyCare and Glenview-based Midwest Palliative Hospice CareCenter will operate as a single entity. When combined, the organization will employ more than 800 health care professionals and care for thousands of patients annually in Chicago and 10 surrounding counties.

“We are excited to combine the incredible talent and compassion of three strong organizations, which will expand the breadth and depth of services for patients and their families across a much larger footprint,” said Sarah Bealles. who was selected to become President and CEO of the newly combined agency, moving from her current role as President and CEO of JourneyCare.

“Each of us shares the same vision, which is to provide exceptional care and compassion to our patients and their loved ones. We are honored to be entrusted with their care at this very intimate time in their lives. This will never change,” Bealles shared. “However, by joining together we will be able to integrate our strengths while leveraging our combined infrastructure and expertise. This agreement positions us to take a lead in defining how care is delivered in the transforming health care market,” Bealles added.

The merger will bring together three highly respected community-based organizations which have more than 100 years of combined experience in the fields of palliative medicine and end-of-life care. The new agency’s name is expected to be announced by late summer.

Collectively, the three organizations have five inpatient hospice centers – located in Barrington, Woodstock, Arlington Heights, Glenview and Chicago – and six offices in the greater Chicago area. These facilities will remain fully operational, and the new agency’s corporate functions will be dispersed throughout its existing offices.

With 40 acute-care hospital affiliations and numerous post-acute partnerships, the new organization will care for approximately 2,500 patients daily. All existing partnerships are expected to remain in place, and all employees will be transitioned into roles within the new agency.

The combined organization will be led by a newly elected 18-person board, with six members chosen from each provider’s current board. Following the closing, up to four additional independent voting members may also be chosen from outside of the organizations within a year after closing.

“The health care industry is not standing still and neither can we,” said Jamie O’Malley, CEO of Midwest CareCenter. “As three of Illinois’ founding palliative and end-of-life care providers, we’re moving forward together to continue to take the lead in finding innovative ways to enhance care for the seriously ill.”

“Our announcement today goes a long way toward increasing access to care for a diverse population of people while increasing efficiencies and improving integration and collaboration with all of our health care partners,” said Mary Runge, CEO of Horizon. “We’re proud to be a part of this merger, which truly forms the premier palliative and end-of-life provider in the region.”

Mary Runge, CEO of Horizon, and Jamie O’Malley, CEO of Midwest CareCenter, will remain in active roles through the transition.

“I’m so grateful to have the support of Mary and Jamie as we move forward through this integration,” Bealles said. “Their deep knowledge and passion for providing excellent patient care will be instrumental in making this transition process seamless for our patients, their families and our employees.”
