Acrylic panels make their first appearance at the Mississippi Aquarium

GULFPORT, MS (WLOX) – Since its inception and original groundbreaking, construction work at the Mississippi Aquarium has been steadily moving past checkpoints and reaching goals. Sunday, another goal was met as the first parts of the acrylic panels were moved to the site. The first piece moved on Sunday morning was about 60,000 pounds and the overall heaviest piece weighs in at about 102,000 pounds and measures 30 by 26 feet. A 500-ton crane will be used to install the biggest piece. In total, about 40 tons of acrylic will be loaded, hauled and installed at the aquarium. Traffic had to be closed off in a small part of U.S. Highway 90 in order to move the panels from the port to the construction area. Due to the various sizes of some of the other panels, not every piece will follow the same route as Sunday. This was one of the biggest pieces, so BH Specialized Hauling needed a wider street to move it on. Some of the smaller pieces may have to be brought in through Highway 49 and some of the side streets, but the company hauling the panels said it is working with the city and businesses in the area to leave the parking spaces on the streets open for the trucks to be able to...

What’s Growing On: Rules for winter pruning of fruit trees – Entertainment & Life – recordnet.com

We’re fortunate to live in California’s Central Valley — one of the most fertile agricultural regions in the country — and thus we have the ability to grow a huge variety of fruit- and nut-bearing trees. Stone fruits (apricots, cherries, nectarines, peaches, plums), pome fruits (apples, pears, Asian pears), nuts (almonds, walnuts, pecans), and others (figs, persimmons) all do very well in our climate and soils. Knowing how and when to prune these types of trees is essential to their successful establishment, their long-term health, and their productivity. Careful, purposeful training of fruit trees during their first few years of life after planting is crucial to having a well structured, healthy and high-yielding tree in later years. Generally speaking, fruit trees should be trained to have a few main branches that emerge low on the trunk, for easier access when pruning and fruit-picking, at a 45 degree angle for good strength. These main or “scaffold” branches should form an open, un-crowded framework, to allow for proper sun exposure and air circulation within the tree. Shaded and/or crowded branches eventually will stop bearing fruit. Fruit trees can be trained into several ...

[LDX] first noticed the odd sounds coming out of his ceiling fan, regularly, on the hour

[LDX] first noticed the odd sounds coming out of his ceiling fan, regularly, on the hour and half-hour. Then he noticed that the lights were flickering as well. Figuring something was up, he built a logging power-line monitor to see if he could decode the shadowy signals and figure out what cryptic messages were being transmitted over the power lines. Naturally, he suspected the Illuminati were behind it. Even if you’re not prone to flights of fancy, you might want to keep track of your power line because it can serve as an accurate long-run timebase for projects, or because it can tell you something about the overall health of the grid. [LDX]’s circuit is as simple as can be. A 10 V AC transformer reduces the mains power down to something reasonable. A resistive divider chops this down further to the range that an Arduino can handle, and then another voltage divider biases the signal to the Arduino’s ADC midpoint. The plus-minus 10 V signal thus swings between 0 and 5 V, just. SPOILERS! After confirming that there was a higher-frequency wiggle superimposed on top of the power-line frequency, he contacted the folks at his power company in Denver. got a tip in the comments to his...

In this episode of The Maker Show, Bret Stateham will show you how to drive a

In this episode of The Maker Show, Bret Stateham will show you how to drive a stepper motor with an Arduino.  Stepper motors are one of the unsung heroes of the age.  Hard drives, CNC Mills, 3D Printers and more just wouldn’t exist without them.  They can do so much more than a regular DC motor, but that capability comes with a little complexity.  This video hopes to de-mystify that and show you how easy it is to get started.  The 28BYJ-48 motor used in this video are inexpensive and readily available.  You should be able to find them online for under $10.00 US and they will offer a fantastic way to get into the world of stepper motors.  Grab one and follow along! This video focuses on how to actually drive the motor with an Arduino.  To gain a better understanding of the internals of the 28BYJ-48 motors, and how the ULN2003 board is used to drive them, check out Bret’s “28BYJ-48 Stepper Motor and ULN2003 Driver Intro” video (https://aka.ms/28BYJ). Lastly, you can grab all the code, and the slides from this episode from Bret’s 28BYJ-48 GitHub Repo: https://aka.ms/28byjrepo [01:44] Hooking it all up[05:20] Wave driving[07:15] Getting the code from Gi...

Brownstone Boys: Keep It Glassy With Shower and Tub Enclosures

Editor’s note: Welcome to the 46th installment of Brownstone Boys Reno, a reader renovation diary. We’re excited to publish their tale of buying and renovating a brownstone in Bed Stuy. See the first one here. They also blog at www.thebrownstoneboys.com. If you are building a new bathroom, especially if you have a nice walk-in shower, you will probably want to have a glass enclosure. Ours was just installed and we couldn’t be more thrilled about it. So we thought we would talk a bit about the process, options and pricing. A glass enclosure to a shower or tub will instantly transform the way your bathroom looks. It will create a nice open and airy feel, provide for a comfortable if not luxurious experience, and show off the beautiful tile or stone you spent so much time picking out. Frame or Frameless If you have ever wondered what makes the glass in one bathroom look modern and attractive and another not so much, it might be the lack of a frame around it. It makes a big difference in creating an open and modern space. Having the frame around the glass is going to add strength. The frameless glass will be fixed to the wall and floor, so the corner there will be very sturdy. The o...

Also, keep in mind that while we have invested hundreds of hours collecting head-to-head data, it’s impossible for us to test every possible scenario. SUPPORT OUR ADVERTISERSgoogletag.cmd.push(function() { googletag.display(‘div-gpt-ad-1389975325257-0′); }); The big difference between these two tools is that the M12 Surge is a hydraulic driver. It uses a hydraulic powertrain instead of a metal-to-metal impact mechanism. More traditionally, we call this oil impulse technology, and t...

Conservative Party launch manifesto vowing to ‘get Brexit done’ but sideline LGBT+ rights

Conservative Party leader Boris Johnson delivers a speech at the launch of his party’s manifesto. (Dan Kitwood/Getty Images) British prime minister Boris Johnson promised on Sunday to “get Brexit done”, pledging in his Conservative Party manifesto to ram his deal through the European Union to withdraw from the bloc before Christmas. However, across the 59-page manifesto, there is a severe lack of pledges which would directly benefit the LGBT+ community. This stands in stark contrast to opposition parties, where manifestos have entire dedicated sections and forensically detailed plans for the future of LGBT+ rights in the UK. With less than three weeks before British voters brave bitter temperatures to vote on December 12, both of the major parties are trying to court votes with their contending visions. In the manifesto branded with the tagline, ‘Get Brexit done’, the governing Conservatives are vying for votes by bargaining with the public’s exhaustion over whether or not to exit the EU. But in Johnson’s accelerated and aggressive approach to, well, get Brexit done, it appears that Conservative policy-makers forgot LGBT+ people exist. We will protect people from physical ...
