The racing versions of the Mercedes-AMG GT have been a huge success. Most recently, Riley Motorsports won the team title in the IMSA Michelin Endurance Cup with the AMG GT3 this year, while Mercedes-AMG won the GS class manufacturers championship in Michelin Pilot Challenge after sweeping GS class drivers, team and manufacturers championships in 2018 with the AMG GT4. In Blancpain GT World Challenge, Mercedes-AMG won the 2019 manufacturers championship for their success around the world in Europe, Asia and North America. To have a good race car you first need a good road car, and a drive in the Mercedes-AMG GT C coupe shows it’s just as impressive as its race siblings. With design cues from the legendary 300SL Gullwing of the 1950’s, the AMG GT is beautifully made and designed. It’s not hard to imagine that this is what a new Gullwing would look like if Mercedes had kept making it over the last 60 years. There’s nothing retro about the powerplant under its long hood. The GT is fitted with a 4-liter V8 biturbo motor with a dry sump, which in GT C form puts out 550 hp (more than the GT4 version) and 502 lb.-ft of torque. The GT C is flanked by two other GT models in the lineup, w...

Standpipes 101, Part 2: A Beginner’s Guide to Standpipe Firefighting

In Part 1 of this series, I covered the basics of standpipe systems such as National Fire Protection Association codes, types of standpipes, and pressure reducing valves (PRVs) and pressure restricting devices (PRDs). Now, I will move on to nozzle, hose, and equipment selection. The age-old debate in the fire service among nozzlemen is smooth-bore vs. combination fog nozzle. Both have their place in the fire service, and both have advantages and disadvantages. However, when it comes to standpipe operations there is only room for one, and that is the smooth-bore nozzle. The first reason to use only a smooth-bore is pressure. Smooth-bore nozzles are low pressure; they operate at their rated flow of 50 pounds per square inch (psi). Why is this important in standpipe operations? Because standpipe systems are low-pressure systems. They operate off as little as 65 psi. Another reason is that standpipe systems are notorious for failure and for not providing the pressure that they should. The first reason is partly because of poor maintenance or improper installation. The second reason is weight. The 2½-inch smooth-bore nozzle can weigh as little as 2½ pounds. Fog nozzles can weigh in e...

Best Towels In India That Warrant A Place In Your Washroom logo

Everyone enjoys a relaxing bath. Be it a hot shower or a warm jacuzzi, sometimes all one needs is a good bath to rejuvenate their senses. Now one of the most important elements of a good bathing experience requires using a soft and comfortable towel. After all, picking the wrong towel can cost you a lot of discomforts – itchy and dry skin, bacterial infections, frizzier hair, and more.

ARMing A Breadboard — Everyone Should Program An ARM

I’m always a little surprised that we don’t see more ARM-based projects. Of course, we do see some, but the volume isn’t what I’d expect given that low-level ARM chips are cheap, capable, low power, and readily available. Having a 32-bit processor with lots of memory running at 40 or 50 MIPS is a game changer compared to, say, a traditional Arduino (and, yes, the Arduino Due and Zero are ARM-based, so you can still stay with Arduino, if that’s what you want). A few things might inhibit an Arduino, AVR, or PIC user from making the leap. For one thing, most ARM chips use 3.3V I/O instead of the traditional 5V levels (there are exceptions, like the Kinetis E). There was a time when the toolchain was difficult to set up, although this is largely not a problem anymore. But perhaps the largest hurdle is that most of the chips are surface mount devices. Of course, builders today are getting pretty used to surface mount devices and you can also get evaluation boards pretty cheaply, too. But in some situations–for example, in classrooms–it is very attractive to have a chip that is directly mountable on a common breadboard. Even if you don’t mind using a development board, you may want to...

With its Micro Growth Systems, Aggressively Organic aims to make healthy produce readily available anywhere.

With its Micro Growth Systems, Aggressively Organic aims to make healthy produce readily available anywhere. Jonathan Partlow, CEO of Aggressively Organic in Fishers, Indiana, wanted to build a growing medium “that can go anywhere that a seed would go.” He wanted to decentralize the food supply chain. The first step in Partlow’s plan was to create a personal hydroponic system that can operate in locations as varied as apartment buildings and schools; a system that produces healthy food, is cost-effective, fights food insecurity and doesn’t negatively affect the environment. After five years of experimentation and testing, Partlow came up with the resulting product, the Micro Growth System — a small hydroponic chamber that consists of a glueless corrugated box, plastic liner, coco coir disc and nutrient solution mix. By picking and eating lettuce and leafy greens he grows in the system he created, Partlow has lost 40 pounds. He doesn’t exercise, and he drinks coffee every morning. “I walk by and I graze,” he says, “but I’m never hungry because my body’s getting nutrients.” The company has shipped the systems, along with lettuce and leafy green seeds (Partlow says different crop ...

Tin-based nanoplates as promising anode materials for high-capacity Li-ion batteries

Researchers from the Harbin Institute of Technology, with colleagues from the Beijing University of Technology and the University of Wisconsin Milwaukee, have synthesized tin chalcogenide (SnSe0.5S0.5) nanoplates for use as Li-ion anodes. In a paper published in the Journal of Power Sources, they reported that the as-prepared of SnSe0.5S0.5 exhibits an outstanding discharge specific capacity of up to 1144 mAh g−1 at 0.1 A g−1 after 100 cycles and 682 mA h g−1 at 0.5 A g−1 after 200 cycles with a high coulombic efficiency (CE) of 98.7%. Even at a high current density of 5 A g−1, this anode material delivers a specific capacity of 473 mAh g−1. A full cell with an NCM cathode and SnSe0.5S0.5 anode, under a current density of 0.5 A g−1, delivered a lithiation capacity of 1111 mA h g−1 and after 50 cycles, the full cell maintained a lithiation capacity of 535 mA h g−1 with a coulombic efficiency of ∼98%. Graphite, a widely used anode material for LIBs, is not suitable for the requirement of high capacity due to a low theoretical capacity of 372 mA h g−1. Thus, it is extremely important to develop new anode materials for batteries with high energy density. Silicon is one of the numero...

Bring a Loupe: An Omega Ref. 2383-4 30T2, A Cutting-Edge Plastic Watch From Tissot, And A Universal Genève Waterproof Ref. 20218-1

Don’t go looking for a theme in this week’s roundup, as there is none to be found. I thought I’d give you a little bit of variety today, with a collection of pieces sure to satisfy a wide range of collecting tastes. At the more accessible end of the spectrum, there’s a 30T2-equipped Omega, along with a Zodiac powered by the venerable Valjoux 72. Slightly older than the rest are the Universal Genève Tri-Compax and Lemania CH27 chronograph, both of which ought to impress those that appreciate seldom-seen retailer signatures and impressive early chronographs alike. For the more avant-garde, there’s an innovative Tissot that paved the way for a more recent Swatch release, along with a Movado that still has its decidedly modern looking bracelet. Let’s jump right into it, shall we?  Everyone loves a good Tri-Compax, and I’m no different. The watch first came to market after its introduction at the Basel fair of 1944, commemorating 50 years of Universal Genève with a liberally complicated chronograph. Since then it has achieved legendary horological status, despite other manufacturers producing similarly complicated pieces. In other words, UG got it right with their various Tri-Compax ...

Prosecutors Refile Homicide Charge Against Great Falls Woman

GREAT FALLS — Cascade County prosecutors have refiled a deliberate homicide charge against a Great Falls woman who was found unfit to stand trial in her mother’s 2017 beating death. County Attorney Josh Racki tells the Great Falls Tribune that his office was told Pamela Jean Courtnage may be due to discharge from the state psychiatric hospital in Warm Springs. District Judge Elizabeth Best scheduled a hearing Monday afternoon to determine if the charges can proceed. In September 2017, a judge said hospital staff could medicate Courtnage involuntarily. A year later, state psychiatrist Dr. Virginia Hill said three medications had failed to improve Courtnage’s condition enough that she could help with her defense. -end Tr90 Frames With 5 Polarized Night Vision Glasses Men Magnetic Eyewear © 2019 Flathead Beacon, All Rights Reserved.

CAFE 541: Kiefer-Lucas: The Sidecar, once forgotten, now reinvented into a worthy sip – Entertainment & Life – The Register-Guard

In its initial formulation it was equal parts brandy, lemon and Cointreau. Completely unpalatable to modern palates. With these initial bizarre proportions, and the fact that every bartender worth their salt knows of it, (but have likely never willingly drank one), the Sidecar finds itself in a unique position. Venerated but ignored. Joaquin Simo is the most famous contemporary bartender to proselytize and modernize the Sidecar. He recommends a Cognac, Pierre Ferrand 1840 specifically, increases it to 2 ounces, with ¾ ounce each of lemon and dry curacao. For balance, and “mouthfeel,” he adds a teaspoon of 2:1 demerara syrup. The syrup ensures the drink is not overly tart, as the curacao he uses, a Pierre Ferrand product as well, is quite dry. Brandy is, as I referenced in a previous article, one of those spirits that really can’t be futzed around with. Quality is necessary in a brandy, especially in a brandy forward cocktail. None of the well or entry-level products will do. Similarly, Cointreau, once an almost omnipresent ingredient in drinks has found itself shut out of the conversation due to, at least in Oregon, pricing. I began by pulling the brandy back to 1.5 ounces usin...

2019 Guide to CNC Router Bits: All You Need to Know

Without the right bits, even the perfect CNC rig won’t be going very far. Explore this comprehensive guide to CNC router bits! While CNC machines have opened all kinds of creative possibilities, the magic lies in the bit. It determines whether you will end up with a perfect or okay design. Plus, it also makes the difference between cutting down on waste or increasing material costs significantly. The bit is used to remove material in a specific way. Initially, routers used to be handheld tools that were guided by templates or ball-bearing pilots, and they were moved manually around the workpiece. But today, routers are controlled using computers that precisely determine the toolpath, and these routers require bits to make intricate cuts. The range of materials and designs cut by router bits has grown significantly in diversity, and so have the types of CNC router bits. Today, the market is flooded with so many kinds of CNC router bits that picking the right bit for a project isn’t always intuitive. Before going any further, let’s familiarize ourselves with some CNC routing jargon that will be used throughout this article: Even though bits fall into these two main categori...
