On paper, the Genesis compares nicely to luxury cars like the BMW 7 Series, Lexus LS

On paper, the Genesis compares nicely to luxury cars like the BMW 7 Series, Lexus LS and Audi A8. It offers similar power, performance and features, but does so for thousands, sometimes tens of thousands less. The only thing money can’t buy is how impressed your friends and colleagues will be by the Genesis name. The G90 3.3T has a starting price just over $70,000, while the more powerful G90 5.0 starts closer to $75,000. That’s thousands less than the BMW 7 Series, Lexus LS and Audi A8, but more expensive than the smaller Cadillac CT6. While the G90’s emblem does bear some resemblance to Bentley’s winged fly “B” badge, the two companies have nothing in common. Genesis is actually the luxury division of Korean auto giant Hyundai motors. While the Genesis brand in relatively new, it has earned a good reputation among its owners for reliable service and longevity. Genesis owners also report a good experience with the dealer network, especially when it comes to dealing with unexpected repairs. The 2020 Genesis G90 is a full-size sedan flagship from Hyundai’s luxury operation. It might lack prestige and dazzling technologies found in well-established German rivals like the Mercedes-...

Buyer’s Guide To Streaming ‘Star Trek: Discovery’ On A Budget

One of the biggest challenges about Star Trek: Discovery for people in the U.S. is that it is exclusively available on the  CBS All Access  streaming service. With only around 1.5 million subscribers, it is likely that most fans will be signing up for the service for the first time. So the question is, how can you watch the show? The CBS app is available on Android and iOS, so you can certainly watch it on your phone or tablet screen easily, as well as on your computer through the CBS website. But Star Trek: Discovery is a show that is being promoted as ‘big’ and ‘cinematic,’ so you’ll probably want to watch it on your TV. “How do I do that?” you might ask. We’re here to tell you. You may already have a device that is ready for CBS All Access. If you’re a gamer, the CBS All Access app is available on the PlayStation 4, the Xbox One, and Xbox 360.  It’s also on any Android TV, including recent higher-end Sony smart TVs, which are CBSAA-ready. And many Vizio smart TVs from the last couple of years (E, M, or P series) have Google Chromecast built-in so they are also ready for you to use your smartphone or tablet to send the CBS All Access video stream to your TV. If you have a dedi...

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

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...
