Industrial lasers continue solid revenue growth in 2016

This report will again show strong growth, which runs counter to more modest gains reported in the global machine tool sector. Most of the world’s economies decreased in gross domestic product (GDP) in 2016, leading to unsettled times for the global manufacturing sector. Setting aside the normal up-and-down cycles of manufacturing, a number of factors occurred last year that affected the manufacturing economy. Globalization hit a wall, with foreign direct investment in rich economies dropping 40% from peak and international lending down 9% in the past two years. This concerned the International Monetary Fund and World Bank as nations turned inward, potentially worsening global malaise in manufacturing—specifically in the U.S., where the presidential election results sent a message of rising protectionism. The World Trade Organization slashed growth in global trade volumes to 1.7% and negative signs appeared, such as shipping containers falling 4% after four decades of double-digit expansion. Growth prospects for the global manufacturing economy continued to weaken, compounded by recent events such as the Brexit vote, terrorist attacks around the world, China’s delays...

In need of a new beginning, Marcia Hoffrage of Carol Stream would like this family room

In need of a new beginning, Marcia Hoffrage of Carol Stream would like this family room to be a cozy, relaxing place. A Monroe sofa would be the starting point around which this family room is redesigned. Photos Courtesy of O’Reilly’s Furniture This room screams chaos and indecision. Since my husband left me, I have felt nothing but stuck trying to figure out what to do to make this room more peaceful and serene. My nest is empty since my four children are grown and have their own homes. Along with that I have recently lost my mother and one of my sisters. In helping to care for them when they were sick, it became difficult to know what to do for myself. I have lived in this house for 40 years. Twenty-five years ago, we converted two bedrooms into a family room. It has never looked the way I wanted it to. I always ended up with somebody else’s castoff furniture. I would love to win new furnishings just to help inspire me to move on and to enjoy this room where I spend a lot of time. Our plan with this room is to help organize this space to make it relaxing and peaceful. We are looking to keep the design simple and minimal. Start by taking out all the existing f...

Cows, Carbon and the Anthropocene: Commentary on Savory TED Video « RealClimate

Allan Savory delivered a highly publicized talk at a “Technology, Entertainment, Design (TED)” conference in February of this year (2013) entitled “How to fight desertification and reverse climate change.” Here we address one of the most dramatic claims made – that a specialized grazing method alone can reverse the current trajectory of increasing atmospheric CO2 and climate change. The talk was attended by many conferees and has since been viewed on the TED website over 1.6 million times. It has received substantial acclaim in social media, some of which is available at the Savory Institute website, but it has also received considerable criticism (of particular note is a blog post from Adam Merberg and an article in Slate magazine. Although these criticism quickly followed Mr. Savory’s presentation and are broadly supported by the available science, his sweeping claims have continued to resonate with lay audiences. An apparent example is his invitation to deliver a speech to Swiss Re during their 150 year anniversary celebration in London in September, in which he is quoted as saying “…only now due largely to my TED talk on the desertification aspect of the global problem, was ...

Used in long sections and small widths, the TSSA was able to effectively bend and hold

Used in long sections and small widths, the TSSA was able to effectively bend and hold shape after processing in an autoclave. The original purpose of the study was to evaluate at what length would the TSSA connection would fail in shear due to a mismatch in coefficient of thermal expansion for the glass and metal. However, the lengths studied indicated a potential to control the amount of bending due to length. The technique presents a potential art to create curved facades in lieu of the use of conventional structural silicone sealants under constant loads. As the TSSA is now the material under constant load, the curved glass could be installed in different façade assemblies via fittings. Transparent Structural Silicone Adhesive (TSSA) is a unique crystal-clear film adhesive that is used to bond point supports of metal, typically stainless steel to glass. The TSSA is cured in an autoclave where glass is laminated usually with Polyvinyl butyral (PVB) or ionomer interlayers. Once the TSSA is cured onto the glass inside the autoclave, the fabrication and erection of the panels involves the simple attachment of engineered hardware on a project site. The TSSA application is a highe...

Best flagship Android phones you can buy [August 2016]

It’s August, and with an ever-increasing number of notable Android OEMs reaching maturity, we’ve seen more new handsets than usual launch this summer. The summer started off strong with the Moto Z and Moto Z Force (not shipping!), and most recently Samsung finally showed us its Galaxy Note 7 after many months of leaks. But which ones are the best buys?… Whether you like a pocket-sized phone that offers more in terms of raw features, or a phablet-sized phone that sticks to stock Android, you’re sure to find something to fit your preference when you go with Android. The platform can be found on more than 80% of smartphones on the planet, and there’s a reason for that. After all, Google’s mantra for the platform is “Be together. Not the same.”, and that rings true in the sheer diversity of Android phones, tablets, watches, and in-car consoles. If a phone is what you’re after, though, you’ve come to the right place. Below we’ve listed the best options among the mid-to-higher-end tier as of August 2016, their ups and downs, their specifications, and the best prices you’ll find anywhere on the web.

Melissa and Chris Battiste are hoping their new yurt will help them live at least a

Melissa and Chris Battiste are hoping their new yurt will help them live at least a little bit off the grid. Melissa and Chris Battiste moved from Cold Lake, Alberta to Newfoundland in 2012. They’ve been slowly “cutting the grid cords” since they moved onto their property. In July 2019, they built and moved into a 314 square foot, 20-foot circular yurt that they purchased from British Columbia. (It took them two days to put up after the floor plan was built). Chris Battiste explains, “A yurt is a tent-like structure. The original yurt is different from our more North American style. We have regular windows and a front door as well as different wall material. We have vinyl walls along with modern insulation layers. We built our yurt in the windiest part of the province; it’s called the wreck house for a reason. Where at least twice a year we get 180 km winds. We have been in the yurt through 150 km; and so far, so good!” To get ready for the winter, they didn’t have to do anything to the yurt itself. Battiste stated, “There was nothing to get ready regarding winter. Not in terms of preparing the yurt itself. We collect fire wood, like any wood burning structure. We just recently...
