Gasoline can

Gasoline is an important part of our lives. We need it for
our cars and trucks, for lawn mowers, for boats and
motorcycles. However, gasoline can be dangerous if not
handled properly. Gasoline is extremely flammable.
Gasoline vapors may also be harmful to your health.
Most people using gasoline in normal situations (like
pumping gasoline into their cars) do not experience any
of the symptoms listed in this paragraph. However,
inhaling gasoline vapors can cause dizziness or irritated
eyes, nose, and throat. A high concentration of vapors
can cause headache, flushed face, nausea, mental
confusion and depression, loss of appetite, slurred
speech, and difficulty in swallowing. Extremely high
concentrations of gasoline vapors can lead to vomiting,
convulsions, coma, and death. Getting gasoline on your
skin may also cause the same problems as inhaling
gasoline vapors.

Studies with laboratory animals have shown that gas-
oline vapors caused kidney damage and kidney cancer in
rats and liver cancer in mice. As far as scientists now
know, low-level or infrequent exposure to gasoline
vapors is unlikely to be associated with cancer or other
serious diseases in humans. However, in light of the
above information, you should take the precautions
outlined in this article.

Keep gasoline away from heat, sparks, and flame.
Gasoline catches fire and burns very easily. Gasoline
vapors may explode.
* Do not smoke when handling gasoline.
* Do not use gasoline indoors.
* Use only as a motor fuel. Do not use gasoline for
any other purpose.
* Put gasoline in a small engine (like a lawn mower)
only when the engine and attachments are cool.
* Do not store or use gasoline near a furnace, hot
water heater, or anything with a pilot light. Store

DO tank your car the correct way to avoid gas fumes.

be dangerous

only in a well-ventilated area, away from your
living quarters.
Store gasoline only in approved containers that
are clearly labeled. Never store gasoline in glass
or unapproved plastic containers.
Turn off your car engine before filling the gas
Do not mix even small amounts with kerosene.
Do not use in kerosene heaters or lamps.
Avoid prolonged breathing of vapors.
Keep your face away from the nozzle and gas
tank when filling your car's gas tank.
Keep away from container opening.
Use gasoline only in an area that gets plenty of
fresh air.
Keep gasoline containers closed when not in use.
Do not overfill gas tank. Make sure the gas cap is
put back on when your gas tank has been filled.

Lago's Marketing


One of the Lago operations which takes place outside of
the refinery area is marketing; nonetheless, it is a vital
link in the chain of services provided to the public. Our
marketing section covers the following areas:
Airport Refueling
The Airport Refueling Operation handles all aircraft
calling at the Reina Beatrix International Airport. The
large aircraft take turbojet fuel, while smaller aircraft,
such as those operated by Oduber Aviation, take avgas.
On the average about 740 aircraft are fueled here each
The Bunkering Operation handles all bunker
requirements in the San Nicolas and Oranjestad
harbors, as well as some calls in Willemstad, Curacao.
Numerous grades of bunker fuel oil (different viscosities).
marine diesel oil and marine gasoil are supplied. In
addition, at the request of vessels, marine lube oils may
be supplied. Approximately 120 vessels are bunkered
each month.
Aruba landtrade is mostly done through the Esso Service
Stations. It provides the local market with gasolines,
diesel, kerosene, LPG, batteries, tires an other accesso-
ries. There are nine Esso service stations in Aruba.

Marketing is part of the Operations Programming and
Marketing Department headed by John Every.

Interactive use

of Computers

Traditionally, the use of computers required the
assistance of the computer experts in an organization's
"Systems Design and Programming" group. They
provided the link between the computer user and the
computer itself. Recent advances in computing
technology, however, have brought the computer much
closer to the user, often eliminating the intermediate step
involving the technical expert.
A new way of using computers has been developed where
the user communicates via video terminals directly with
the computer. The name assigned to this type of
computing is interactive computing. It is a two-way
conversation between a user who has a problem to solve
and the computer. The computer provides an efficient
and accurate means for analyzing a problem and
presenting the results.

Interactive computing has several advantages such as:
* USER FRIENDLY. An interactive computing
system is designed for the user, rather than for the
computer expert. Mastering the use of this tool requires
little training because of the simple commands needed.
* ACCESSIBILITY. Interactive computing provides
direct access to information stored in computer
memories by the user.
* CONTROL. Direct communication between user
and computer provides full user control over information
gathering, analysis and reporting.
computing, by eliminating the intermediate step of the
expert between user and computer, substantially reduces
the amount of time required to complete any computing
Interactive computing simplifies complex decision
making processes. Problem solving, which previously
required lengthy calculations -- many manually
performed --, has been made easy.
Interactive computing improves the mechanics of
problem solving and produces significant gains in terms
of employee productivity and company profitability.

At her computer terminal, Bianca Croes of Lago's Employee
Relations Department, retrieving information.

Interactive computing was introduced at Lago during
1981. Currently over 40 terminals, linked to the IBM
system 4341 mainframe computer, serve a population of
over 100 engineering professionals and systems analysts.

Heart Attack!!!

recognize its symptoms
By Dr. Larry Crook
leart disease is the leading cause of death for both men
nd women. Twice as many men and women die from
heart attacks than liom all types of cancer combined.
becausee of this, it is important that everyone know the
/mptons of a heart attack.
'am is the most important sympton. The pain is usually
described as dull, aching, or squeezing. It starts slowly,
nd may last for hours. It is located in the center of the

chest, and may spread to the arms, the neck, or the upper
part of the abdomen, where it is often mistaken for
indigestion, or heartburn.
The pain is often accompanied by weakness, shortness of
breath, anxiety, nausea, or vomiting. The victim may be
pale, cool. and sweating profusely. Occasionally a victim
will feel dizzy, lightheaded, or may even faint.
The pain may begin at any time, whether the patient is
resting or working, and is not relieved by rest. Olien the
victim will walk about trying to find relief.
Heart attacks may occur without pain. This is fairly
common in older people and in diabetics. These people
may have some of the other symptoms listed above, such
as shortness of breath, vomiting or fainting.
There is an important fact to keep in mind about heart
attacks. Over one half of the people who die from heart
attacks do so in the first 60 minutes, before they ever
reach a hospital! So, the most important thing you can
do if you think you might be having a heart attack is to go
to the hospital or clinic as soon as possible.

Papiando di Salud

Atake di


Reconoce e symptomanan
Pa Dr. Larry Crook.
Enfermedad di curazon ta e causa principal di morto pa
ambos homber y muhernan. E cantidad di homber y
muhernan cu ta muri di atakenan di curazon ta dos
biaha mas grand cu e cantidad cu ta muri di tur tipo di
cancer combing. Ta pesei, ta important pa tur hende
conoce e symptomanan di un atake di curazon.
Dolor ta e symptoma mas important. E dolor ta word
describe como dolor cu no ta intense, cu ta molestia ofcu
ta primi. E ta cuminsa poco poco y e por continue pa
oranan largo. E ta localisa den e centro di bo pecho, y e
por sigi pa bo brasanan, pa e nek of pa e parti ariba di e
abdomen, unda hopi biaha e ta wordo confundi pa
indigestion of pa acido di stoma.
Hopi biaha e dolor ta wordo compaia pa debilidad, falta
di rosea, anshamento, mariamento y sacamento. E
victim por tin un cara descolord, frieuw y e por ta
sodando hopi. Tin biaha e victim ta sinti cu su cabez ta
bira, e por ta sinti tolondra of e por hasta cai flauw.
E dolor por cuminza na cualquier ora, sea, cu e paciente
ta descansando of ta trahando, y no ta wordo alivia door
di descanso. Hopi biaha e victim lo cana rond pa hafia
Atakenan di curazon por tuma lugar sin dolor. Esaki ta
basta comun cerca hendenan mas bieuw v diabeticonan.
E hendenan aki por tin algun di e otro symptomanan cu
a wordo menciona ariba, manera falta di rosea,
sacamento of nan por bai for di tino.
Tin un hecho important cu nos tin di corda tocante
atake di curazon. Mas cu miti di esnan cu ta muri di
atake di curazon ta fayece durante e prome 60
minuutnan, prome cu nan yega hospital. Pesei, e cos mas
important cu bo por haci, si bo ta k6re cu bo por ta
hafiando un atake di curazon. ta, pa bai hospital of
clinic mas lihe cu ta possible.
