Every year, The NEWS introduces the latest heating equipment that is available for the upcoming winter

Every year, The NEWS introduces the latest heating equipment that is available for the upcoming winter season. The intent is to help contractors prepare for this busy period by doing the research that will help them to distinguish between brands. Like last year, this year’s Heating Showcase is split into two parts — residential and commercial. The residential and light commercial information is published in this issue, and the commercial equipment will be featured in the Oct. 7 issue. Included in the coverage is feature-specific information about each individual product, submitted by the manufacturers. The showcase features the product grid, which includes technical facts such as unit tonnage, refrigerant type, efficiency rating, and cooling capacity. The accompanying photo feature provides more in-depth information on the features of each individual unit and also includes technical support information from the manufacturer. The manufacturers provided all of the data included in the product grid, as well as in the photo feature. Therefore, any questions should be directed to them via the contact information provided in the photo feature section. Serviceability features: All ser...

Hi-Quality Carbide Tooling Inc., a manufacturer of carbide precision parts and dies, makes one-of-a-kind carbide tooling,

Hi-Quality Carbide Tooling Inc., a manufacturer of carbide precision parts and dies, makes one-of-a-kind carbide tooling, including extrusion dies, spring forming tooling and stamping dies. They’re used in machines to make mass-produced parts for the automotive, aerospace and medical industries. For the past six years, the 15-employee company has used ESPRIT CAM software for its wire EDM work, but because of the specialized products it produces, the shop team wanted to use one software across plant. ESPRIT CAM got the nod. “One of our dies will make two or three million bolts or ball joints for a car,” says Tim Middlehurst, who co-owns the small manufacturing outfit in Orangeville, Ont. with Wendy Middlehurst. “We do lots of bearing work for the oil and gas industry and a lot of aerospace fasteners. We also specialize in spring tools that form shaped wire springs – not just your standard round wire springs.” The facility, which consists of 1,200 square-feet of office space and an 8,000 square-foot plant, has more than 30 machines on the job, including CNC, ID and manual grinders, wire and sinker EDM, and high-speed milling machines. Hi-Quality typically deals with small-quantit...

Death of six-year-old girl who drowned on a trip to the beach was an accident, coroner rules 

The heartbroken mother of a six-year-old girl who drowned in the sea while out on a day trip left a courtroom in tears today as a coroner ruled her death was an accident. Little Dajahnel Amazin Young went missing while out on a day trip with a church group at Margate, Kent in July last year. Her body was found floating in the water in the harbour area of the resort by a passerby who first thought it was a ‘floating plank of debris’. Emergency services attended the scene to save the girl and she was taken to the Queen Elizabeth The Queen Mother Hospital in the town, where she was pronounced dead on July 28 last year.  Dajahnel Amazin Young, 6, went missing during a trip with a church group at Margate, Kent in July last year The girl’s mother Camille Remekie, of Erith, south east London, said she had given instruction to Cynthia and Fitzroy Robinson, who organised the trip, to keep her daughter out of the water.  Ms Remekie said she expected the pair to look after Dajahnel, known by her middle name Amazin, and keep her from going in the sea, but they said they were not given such instruction. The inquest was previously told Amazin had just walked back from the w...

The winter holidays really are the most wonderful time of the year. When else can you

The winter holidays really are the most wonderful time of the year. When else can you justify eating dozens of cookies, opening second and third bottles of wine, stringing lights around the roof of your house, and putting an 8-foot tree in the center of your living room? And in any home where a Christmas tree will be set up during the holidays, it’s as essential to have a great tree skirt underneath the tree as it is to have a shining star up on the top. Tree skirts are important for three primary reasons, which will be of differing levels of value to different people and which I’ll discuss in no particular order. A tree skirt can help keep your home clean by catching the needles that fall from a genuine pine tree, and which will invariably end up spread all around the house if not properly caught and collected. A tree skirt’s ability to keep the room/home cleaner is its primary purpose for many households. (Note that even artificial trees shed some, so from a cleanliness perspective, a tree skirt is a good idea even with a fake tree.) Tree skirts also help to keep pets and kids away from the tree stand. This is all the more important with a real tree that has a water-filled sta...

Death spiral for cars. By 2030, you probably won’t own one

By 2030, you probably won’t own a car, but you may get a free trip with your morning coffee. Transport-As-A-Service will use electric vehicles and will upend two trillion-dollar industries. It’s the death spiral for cars. By 2030, you probably won’t own a car, but you may get a free trip with your morning coffee. Transport-As-A-Service will use only electric vehicles and will upend two trillion-dollar industries. It’s the death spiral for cars. A major new report predicts that by 2030, the overwhelming majority of consumers will no longer own a car – instead they will use on-demand electric autonomous vehicles. By 2030, within 10 years of regulatory approval of autonomous electric vehicles (A-EVs), the report says, 95 per cent of all US passenger miles traveled will be served by on-demand, autonomous, electric vehicles that will be owned by fleets rather than individuals. The provision of this service may come virtually free as part of another offering, or a corporate sponsorship. Imagine, for instance, paying a token sum for a ride into town after buying a latte for $4.50. Or getting a free ride because the local government has decided to make transport easier. The report, by R...

PriestmanGoode redesigning in-flight service to address waste

An award-winning team of journalists, designers, and videographers who tell brand stories through Fast Company’s distinctive lens Last year, a record 45 million airline flights took place worldwide, shuttling roughly 4.5 billion travelers. The amount of plastic waste generated with each takeoff is enormous; meal trays, earphones, and amenity kits all contribute to the 5.7 million tons of cabin waste produced on passenger flights each year. PriestmanGoode, a design studio focused on travel, is addressing this environmental issue with a line of in-flight products made from sustainable materials. Their green service items are on display at the Design Museum in London as part of an exhibit called Get Onboard: Reduce. Reuse. Rethink. And while their products remain prototypes for now, the studio hopes to develop them for use in the future. “The key reason we have addressed air travel is that very little plastic waste is actually recycled—it is incinerated or ends up as landfill due to lack of infrastructure at destinations and contamination legislation,” explains Jo Rowan, associate strategy director at PriestmanGoode, who led the project. “We wanted our exhibition to highlight...

As Boise booms, a city faces the curse of ‘Californication’

Property Lines is a column by Curbed senior reporter Patrick Sisson that spotlights real estate trends and hot housing markets across the country. Comments, tips, and suggestions on where Property Lines should head next are welcome at patrick@curbed.com. When Cameron Crow, 29, contemplated a move back to his native Boise, Idaho, three years ago, his friends reacted with confusion. At the time, Crow was a data analyst working in San Francisco, the nation’s tech hub; why would he leave that for a small city in Idaho? Crow said it took a single sentence for them to see the light: “You can easily own a home, have a 10-minute commute to work by bike, and drink $4 craft beers downtown.” Three years after Crow returned home, becoming a Boise boomerang and starting his own analytics firm, he’s realized he’s in a much different city than the one he grew up in—and the one he pitched to friends. The picturesque metropolitan on the Boise River has boomed. New businesses—and, yes, breweries—have changed the core of a city that’s earned rave reviews for its livability and proximity to nature. The Boise metro area (population 700,000) has also experienced the downsides of rapid growth. Idaho, ...
