As a tower technician with Hudson-based Midwest Tower Erection Inc. he enjoys expansive wide-sky views every day from towers high over landscapes all over the MidwestMeissner a father of two young girls worked in construction until jobs dried up during the recession A friend who worked at Midwest Tower encouraged him to apply for an opening about three-and-a-half years ago as the company expanded thanks to investments Verizon was making in its long-term evolution (LTE) service across the nation“They hired me on the spot and I’ve been working for Verizon Wireless ever since” Meissner said “It’s all Verizon whether we’re stacking towers or taking towers down or hanging new antennas for LTE or AWS (advanced wireless services) or installing a microwave dish”Most people probably don’t give it much thought but it’s towers technology and technicians like Meissner that are to thank whenever their cell phone conversations and wireless data service work as they should“If it wasn’t for guys like us people wouldn’t be able to do everything on their phones with games and apps” Meissner said “What people don’t realize is that for your calls and Internet to work really well guys like us risk our lives every day We freeze up there just to make sure everything works It has to get done”Though it’s clear that the job involves heights Meissner says that’s just the beginning of the risks involved in working on metal structures hundreds of feet in the sky Rigorous safety training and equipment prepare him for many contingencies in a job he believes is even more dangerous than those of the commercial fishermen portrayed in the Deadliest Catch TV show“If a tower falls there is no Coast Guard to come help us” Meissner said “If their ship goes down they still have a chance of getting saved If a tower collapses that’s pretty much it”According to Meissner each tower technician with Midwest Tower is certified for tower climber rescue operations in case of individual accidents on the job So far Meissner hasn’t had to use that training in a real-world lifesaving situationOther dangers that keep Meissner and his fellow crew members on their toes include dishes that emit potentially harmful microwave frequencies strong winds cold temperatures and icy tower conditions “We are one of the best when it comes to conditions in the Midwest” Meissner said “Guys from down in Texas they can’t really come up here this time of year and try to do this It is miserable This is the time of year when it really starts to suck There’s times when your eyes can start freezing shut Amazing stuff can happen up there when a tower’s glazed in ice”He admits that upon occasion his mind has wandered to thinking about how the towers are engineered particularly how much ice weight and wind shear they can withstand He also thinks about what the human body can withstand at extremely low temperatures When the weather is cool he is careful to climb the tower very slowly to avoid breaking a sweat He’s not trying to be lazy he just doesn’t want his exertion to turn against him when he reaches the top Once at the top he needs to be there for several hours to complete his job That means moving too quickly and working up a sweat could lead to a lot of discomfort — or even hypothermia — as he stops climbing at the top“When it’s 2 degrees on the ground it’s probably like minus-12 up there even at just 100 feet up” Meissner said “We’re usually working between 300 and 400 feet sometimes higher than that”Meissner’s highest climb was 550 feet but he says he knows guys who have been about 1000 feet up on a tower near Somerset that has since been loweredOn pleasant days Meissner very much enjoys the unique parts of his job“Cars look like Micro Machines (toys)” Meissner said “I’ve had flocks of geese fly underneath me I’ve had helicopters fly pretty much at or just underneath me I’ve had hail rain and snow up on the tower I’ve seen it snow below us without it being very bad up top”One weather situation all tower crews are especially careful to avoid is lightning which can spell doom for both the climbers and the ground support crew members“Only certain things sketch me out like if I’m 400 feet up in the air and I see a storm rolling in with lightning” Meissner said “If a lightning bolt hits the tower you’re done The whole crew is done everybody on the ground is done It can arc off and kill everybody There are times you might not be able to climb down fast enough when a storm rolls in and a tower is just a giant lightning rod just asking to get hit”Despite the dangers Meissner can’t imagine ever leaving the company to find safer work“I’m going to stay here forever I love this job” Meissner saidIn fact the vistas the job offers have provided him with a heavy dose of artistic inspiration that he has begun exploring thanks to the cell phone photography application InstagramHis Instagram account has awe-inspiring images of brightly colored sunsets and autumn landscapes tranquil green forests and farmland and shots looking straight down at the tower itself Meissner’s artsy shots are mixed in with selfies and slice-of-life snapshots of his daughters — Kennedy 8; and Brynn 6“I’m trying to get into amateur photography because I can take so many amazing pictures from there of the sunsets the leaves the lakes and the mountains” Meissner said “I was on a tower last October where I could see Mount Rushmore from the tower That was really cool”Over the past two years Meissner has been shooting photos just with his cell phone but he has recently purchased a nice 35mm film camera to experiment with“I want to open up my own darkroom and start bringing back real vintage-type photos without a digital camera doing it all myself” Meissner saidFor now he still shoots all his photos with his cell phone but he hopes to soon begin packing his film camera along with his lunch tools and other equipment For Meissner it’s about learning to create some of the Instagram filter effects using only a camera film and darkroom techniques“Everybody strives for the old-school look now” Meissner said “A lot of people take pictures and go on Instagram to try to make them look old If you just get yourself an old camera you can shoot real vintage stuff and it will be old”Meissner’s Instagram images can be viewed at instagramcom/blackmoonkiller Rudd was

German court can hear his appeal of a decision rejecting his asylum application identified only as Nasibullah S. was among 69 Afghans deported last month on the same day that Interior Minister Horst Seehofer turned 69 – a coincidence he welcomed as a sign of increasing expulsions Seehofer the Bavarian conservative leader who nearly brought Germany’s governing coalition down over his demand for strict migration policies came under fire after one of the other migrants in the group of 69 committed suicide The Afghan man who had arrived in Germany in 2015 had been living in the eastern state of

generated by auto-feed Tournament leaders were chopped to a third at the conclusion of the Chesscom Isle of Man Masters Of the six overnight leaders only Wang Hao and Arkadij Naiditsch won their games and remained on maximum score of 40/4 Hot on their heels are Maxime Vachier-Lagrave Radoslaw Wojtaszek Richard Rapport Vidit Gujrathi Jeffery Xiong Mircea-Emilian Parligras and Abhijeet Gupta On the top board American teenager GM Jeffery Xiong carefully avoided going into the lines of the Sicilian Najdorf against Maxime Vachier-Lagrave The Frenchman is a known expert on the line and has slain many a Grandmaster in it Quite understandably therefore Xiong opted for a sideline the Sicilian Rossolimo and induced an early queen exchange The ensuing middle game saw players battle in a fairly balanced position until the 33rd move before agreeing to a draw The other two games that featured the leaders also did not seem to hold much promise at the start Wang Hao had a small but negligible edge over Erwin L’ami while Pavel Tregubov had managed to equalise against Naiditsch with the French Defence the opening that has been quite in vogue on the top boards in this tournament The game between Naiditsch and Tregubov had begun with the Winawer variation of the French a line which usually leads to extremely sharp positions But then this line had also been used quite successfully in the previous round by Sam Sevian against Levon Aronian Pavel Tregubov (left) went down surprisingly fast from an equal but passive position against Arkadij Naiditsch Image courtesy: John Saunders Naiditsch deviated from Aronian’s chosen move order in the line on the 6th move but black still managed to equalise But having ‘castled by hand’ Tregubov only had to ensure his king rook didn’t remain locked in on its home square Once that was resolved the position was just equal Naiditsch was still more active with his pieces however and tried to make something of this by maneuvering his queen and rooks Somewhere around here Tregubov got into time trouble and began defending passively Exploiting this Naiditsch quickly switched wings and began posing threats on the kingside Unable to defend against this Tregubov was forced to resign on the 40th move “Somehow black should be perfectly fine but Pavel did not find a way to get his Rh5 into the game.In the time trouble he made it much easier to me than it should have been” Naiditsch told Chesscom after the game Hao also exploited the passivity of his opponent’s position in his game against L’ami The game had begun with an Anti-Berlin that eventually had begun to show the contours of an Italian Opening But as is the case in both the Italian and the Berlin the position had remained fairly balanced all the way through In the endgame white had a very slim edge due to better activity of his pieces but black on the other hand had nothing to fear due to his solid – although slightly passive – position What Hao did have working in his favour was that he had no risk of losing in the position He could have tried to ‘squeeze’ for as long as he wanted and then taken the draw if nothing worked On the 43rd move L’ami cracked and made a tactical error that netted his opponent a pawn This was all that was required for Wang in addition to his positional edge The game wrapped up in the Chinese Grandmaster’s favour in just seven more moves after this GM Gupta who sported a Superman cap on Day Four also played like he possessed superpowers and outclassed the Vietnamese super Grandmaster (as GMs rated above Elo 2700 are often informally called) Le Quang Liem Abhijeet Gupta and Le Quang Liem discussed a sharp theoretical Sicilian in Round 4 Image courtesy: John Saunders Both players did not shy away from a high-power theoretical game In the Sicilian Richter-Rauzer Gupta went for broke in a complicated middle game trying to generate an attack on the enemy king After several ups and downs the game finally liquidated to a rook and minor piece endgame on his 36th turn and remained with an extra pawn The endgame went on until the 60th move of the game before Gupta had finally managed to force resignation After two back to back draws GM Viswanathan Anand finally won his second game of the event against his young compatriot GM Shyam Sundar With the black pieces Sundar had essayed the aggressive and relatively rare Schliemann variation of the Ruy Lopez Anand however was hardly surprised by his opponent’s opening choice Getting a clearly better position out of the opening Anand had reached a winning position after some skirmishes on the queenside By the 25th move black’s entire queenside had shattered and in a dozen more moves Anand had forced resignation The other all Indian encounter between Gujrathi and R Praggnanandhaa ended with a win for the former In a Catalan Defence Praggananandhaa mishandled the opening with the black pieces and ended up in a much worse position quite early out of the opening Trading queens Vidit quickly won a pawn and had no problems converting “After that it was just suffering for him” Vidit told Chesscom talking about the position after the queen trade on the 15th move The fifth round of the tournament will feature a clash between the two leaders of the tournament Hao and Naiditsch Gujrathi will face his fourth straight Indian opponent of the event in Gupta on board four The two are currently sharing the second place with 35/5 Another important detail of Round 5 is that Anand has decided to take a half point bye As per the rules of the tournament players are allowed to take one half point bye in any of the first eight rounds of the event Anand isn’t the only one however to take this bye in the middle of the event Seven other players have done the same Some of the top names include Vladimir Kramnik Radoslaw Wojtaszek Peter Leko and former women’s world champion Alexandra Kosteniuk Games from Round 4 Aditya Pai is an editor at ChessBase
