With as many joys as maternity brings, any mom or new mom-to-be knows that it has

With as many joys as maternity brings, any mom or new mom-to-be knows that it has its challenges too. Whether it be temporarily growing out of your favorite jeans or pausing on wearing high heels, anything that can bring additional comfort or ease is much appreciated. This is particularly true for underwear, an item not likely to have been given much thought before but is now a serious source of consideration once your belly is growing.  As your belly grows along with you, wearing your old lingerie becomes increasingly difficult (though you’ll be back in it soon enough!). In the meantime, you might find yourself looking for maternity underwear that will support your ever-changing needs throughout pregnancy. Instead of simply sizing up on your previously-favored brands, consider swapping to brands specifically designed for mothers-to-be.  The best underwear for pregnancy tends to be stretchier, produced from light materials such as cotton, and have a full cut to support your baby bump. That being said, the decision to be made is whether you prefer low-rise under-the-bump undies or full-rise over-the-bump cuts. While the former is often less bulky and better for your jeans and wor...

Clay Alexander has a beautiful vision of the future. It’s one in which your chicken never gets cold and your beer never gets warm. His Los Angeles-based startup, Ember, is trying to disrupt the dishware industry. That’s right: The company wants to radically change the way you eat and drink. Alexander, an engineer and inventor who in 2009 sold his energy-saving light bulb to General Electric, started Ember in 2012. Its newest product is an $80 ceramic mug that keeps your coffee or tea at the exact temperature you like it. Just pair it with your phone via Bluetooth, select your preferred number of degrees, and enjoy all the hot caffeinated goodness. The mug will be sold at more than 4,600 Starbucks locations starting Thursday. Ember’s new mug is a scaled-back take on its first product, a $150 coffee mug that keeps liquid at a constant temperature between 120 and 145 degrees for two hours. That’s a hefty price tag, but Alexander says the company has sold tens of thousands of them since the product’s release last year.  Ember decided to simplify things the second time around. Its new mug is far less futuristic-looking than the original one, which greets...

Sapphire Awards program recognizes leaders pushing LED technology beyond lumens (MAGAZINE)

Now in its fourth year, the LEDs Magazine Sapphire Awards solidifies its commitment to addressing the frontrunners responsible for the evolution of SSL technology as applications continue to emerge with more complex needs and capabilities, writes Carrie Meadows. During the week of Strategies in Light in Long Beach, CA (Feb. 13-15, 2018), the stars aligned to light the way to the LEDs Magazine Sapphire Awards Gala on the RMS Queen Mary, where PennWell’s LED & Lighting Network, industry leaders, and solid-state lighting (SSL) professionals gathered at the blue carpet to commemorate their experience with a photo and celebrate the LED-centric innovations and advances that were submitted to the program this past year. Entertainer Taylor Hughes gave the packed venue a taste of comedy and illusion, while the Swing Cats big band led by trumpeter Dan Methe got the crowd on their feet and swinging to the beat of standards from the 30s through the 50s with their dynamic sound. What lent the evening a more personal touch was the engagement of many well-known SSL industry professionals as presenters who shared their enthusiasm for the Sapphire Awards program with those who received...

Another 139 new cases of a flu-like disease caused by a new strain of coronavirus in

Another 139 new cases of a flu-like disease caused by a new strain of coronavirus in China has shocked health officials. There’s also been a third confirmed death reported today. Worse, the outbreak has now spread beyond Wuhan in central China where the virus was first identified. There have been cases reported in Beijing, a province next door to Shanghai and Shenzhen in southern China. Health authorities in Beijing have now confirmed two cases of the new coronavirus today, while Guangdong authorities in southern China reported one new case in Shenzhen as well. The Shenzhen case is the first confirmation that the virus has spread domestically beyond Wuhan. The Wuhan Health Commission announced today that 136 new patients had been diagnosed over the weekend – 1 person died from the virus, 2 remain in critical condition, 33 are in serious condition. All three patients that have died are believed to have visited Wuhan in the last month or so. The new cases have brought the total number of people diagnosed with the virus in China to 201. That’s a big jump over numbers reported over the weekend. Meanwhile, health authorities in Shenzhen, bordering Hong Kong, say they are monitoring e...

Even if you’re not much of a fan of the Duggar family, you probably know that

Even if you’re not much of a fan of the Duggar family, you probably know that the women in the family aren’t allowed to wear pants. It was a decision that Michelle and Jim Bob Duggar made early on. None of the women in the family are allowed to wear pants by themselves, they must wear long skirts and dresses. Tights or leggings may be worn under said skirts, but never on their own. In in a clip from TLC, Michelle explains her relationship with modesty and how she passed that on to her daughters. “At 15 when I was born again as a Christian, I really began to view things differently because I was looking at it through God’s frame of reference, and the scriptures. As I studied, I realized that if I wanted to honor the Lord, I needed to cover a few more areas of myself so I wasn’t causing someone else to be defrauded,” she explains. She added that she passed this notion down to her children through bible study when they were children. Back in 2014, the older Duggar girls: Jana, Jill, Jessa and Jinger, wrote a book called Growing Up Duggar. In the book, they explain the concept of modesty in a little more detail. “We do not dress modestly because w...

Advanced industrial lasers have evolved well beyond simple cutting and welding applications. Laser technology now offers

Advanced industrial lasers have evolved well beyond simple cutting and welding applications. Laser technology now offers an industrial de-coating and surface cleaning solution that is cost effective as well as responsive to environmental concerns. From the automated cleaning of molds to precise de-coating to oxide removal, laser surface treatments are proving to be an attractive option to traditional labor-intensive methods. In the past decade laser paint removal and cleaning systems have generated significant interest as a viable alternative to conventional cleaning and paint removal technologies. Research on mobile, reliable, and powerful laser systems for cleaning and paint removal operations began in the late 1980s with the modification of welding or cutting lasers into laser systems for surface preparation. This approach did not meet the requirements for surface preparation, which are significantly different than for cutting and welding. In the early 1990s, research took place around the world for more efficient, reliable laser systems for surface preparation work. It took another few years to develop the technology from experimental laboratory systems to dependable systems...

Porsche’s 800V electric sports car Taycan makes world debut

Porsche’s first all-electric sports car, the Taycan, made its world premiere at three simultaneous events in Canada, China and Germany. The most important sales markets of the new electric sports car are on these three continents. The event locations also symbolized three forms of sustainable energy: the Niagara Falls at the border between the US state of New York and the Canadian province of Ontario representing hydropower; a solar farm in Neuhardenberg near Berlin representing solar power; and a wind farm on Pingtan Island around 150 kilometers from the Chinese city of Fuzhou in the province of Fujian representing wind power. The first models in the series of the four-door sports car are the Taycan Turbo S and Taycan Turbo. They are at the cutting edge of Porsche E-Performance and are among the most powerful production models that the sports car manufacturer currently has in its product range. Less powerful variants of these all-wheel drive vehicles will follow this year. The first derivative to be added will be the Taycan Cross Turismo at the end of next year. By 2022, Porsche will have invested more than €6 billion in electromobility. The flagship Turbo S version of the Tay...

If you’re servicing the brakes or suspension system, you do not need fancy orange gloves or

If you’re servicing the brakes or suspension system, you do not need fancy orange gloves or insulated tools. Electric cars are nothing new to Brake & Front End readers. By the time the magazine was first published in 1931, the Anderson Electric Car Company had been producing them in Detroit, Michigan, for drivers like Thomas Edison, John D. Rockefeller, Jr. and famous carver Lizzie Borden. Almost 90 years have passed, and electric cars are back. And just as in 1931, even electric cars need brakes. This month we look at what it takes to service the 2013-current Tesla Model S.  The Tesla Model S is not a spaceship. Once you pull a wheel and look at the brakes, you will quickly realize that it shares many of the same components conventional vehicles use for the brakes and suspension.  For a shop that works on brakes and suspensions, the Tesla – now and in the future – will offer many opportunities. While many Tesla drivers claim they can get more than 100,000 miles out of a set of brake pads, many will need to have the brakes serviced sooner due to noise and pulsation. The noise problem is typically due to corrosion between the steel backing plates of the brake pads and aluminu...

The heart-pounding, fast-paced thrills of roller coasters have been delighting carnival and theme park goers since

The heart-pounding, fast-paced thrills of roller coasters have been delighting carnival and theme park goers since 1804, when the first wheeled coaster opened in Paris, France. What makes roller coasters so impressive is their ability to reach breakneck speeds without the use of an engine. All the kinetic energy required to power a fully loaded coaster through the track is loaded up in the first climb. The materials that are used in building the roller coaster also affect the kind of ride one can expect to have. There are generally two types of roller coasters: wooden and steel. Wooden roller coasters were the first type of coasters ever built. They are composed of steel strip running rails mounted on a laminated wooden track. Common types of wood used include Douglas fir and southern yellow pine. The wood is painted and treated to prevent short-term deterioration. Wooden coasters support the track through the use of large trestle-style structures made of construction grade wood. The structures are supported by ‘bents’, which are made from pairs of 4 x 6’s spaced apart and attached with a series of cross braces and chords. Concrete foundations joined with bolts and nails support...
