The 100 greatest moments in Chicago Bears history: 90-81

The Chicago Bears, one of the two remaining charter franchises of the National Football League, have put together an impressive century – nine NFL championships and a league-most 28 players inducted into the NFL’s Hall of Fame. Within that history have been signature moments spanning every era. NBC Sports Chicago has identified the 100 greatest Bears moments, the “Hallowed Hundred” that are etched in memories throughout the history of the organization that started it all. Some of those moments have been individual games with defining overall significance. Some have been specific plays within those games. And some of those moments have occurred away from any one game. Pivotal games rate edges over individual performances. Fair or not, games since Thanksgiving Day 1934, the date of the first Bears game broadcast nationally, on NBC radio, and since the NFL crashed into national consciousness in 1958 with “The Greatest Game Ever Played” get a touch more weight simply because the Bears have been seen and heard more with the growth of football on the air. Put simply, games that are seen or heard are going to be arguably more memorable than ones only read about in the newspapers of the...

2016 Was a Good Year for Lasers; 2017 Looks Even Better

Advanced Manufacturing Media is a leading source for news and in-depth technical information about advanced manufacturing in North America. Strong 2016 earnings among top industrial laser providers, continued brisk adoption of fiber lasers, cheaper ultrafast lasers, and a host of novel applications and notable corporate acquisitions signal a big year ahead for photonics-based manufacturing. With fiber lasers continuing to replace CO2 systems in cutting operations, experts see diode lasers eventually emerging as the leader for materials processing. Ultrafast lasers are playing a bigger role in refining traditional laser processes, while considerable research fuels advances in processes like joining dissimilar materials and additive manufacturing. Laser-based additive manufacturing, particularly for metal parts, is spurring major investment and advances in machines. For instance, in the communications sector, the high-power UV light of excimer lasers anneals polycrystalline silicon to produce faster and more energy-efficient flat-panel displays for mobile devices. In the auto industry, Jenoptik earned an innovation award in December for a process of robotic laser cutting and weldi...

Once a 3D-printed die has undergone final surface finishing (when necessary), hardening, quenching, and tempering, the

Once a 3D-printed die has undergone final surface finishing (when necessary), hardening, quenching, and tempering, the completed A2 die tooling is ready for testing and production. A priority of any manufacturing process is to deliver high-quality parts as efficiently as possible. To actualize this goal, stamping has repeatedly evolved to become more productive and cost-effective. In the past two decades alone, software simulation tools have streamlined stamping die design, and the introduction of servo presses has increased flexibility and line throughput. However, even with process efficiency at the forefront of stamping innovation, there have not been major upgrades to die component manufacture in the past 100 years. The absence of a die build evolution is not because the die production process has been optimized. In fact, it has long been an arduous, expensive affair. Die components are typically made of tool steels with low machinability and, as with any process dependent on CNC bandwidth, the design flow of stamping tools can be tedious. Design rework bogs down the die manufacturing process, so engineers often rely on simulation rather than prototype iteration to verify to...

With UNDERCOVER and Nike recently unveiling a collaborative lineup of hi-tech SS19 garments, the Japanese label

With UNDERCOVER and Nike recently unveiling a collaborative lineup of hi-tech SS19 garments, the Japanese label returns this time in the form of a subtle gothic-inspired necklace. The necklace encompasses a thin curb-style chain that comes with an engraved “U” logo tag at the clasp. At the base of the necklace is a circular bail that holds the pendant. Made in Japan with .925 sterling silver, the pendant takes the form of a red upside down cross that’s detailed subtly with a slim outline and double lines at the top and the bottom. The red cross is placed behind a creamy ecru base at the center. Behind it lies a hidden pocket knife with an embossed dip on the side for easy opening. Other details like its slightly weathered tone and Jun Takahashi insignia at the back gives the piece a vintage feel defined through the unique lens of UNDERCOVER.

Pokémon Go’s new snapshot mode will let you take better AR-powered pics

Pokémon Go players will soon be able to level up their photography skills, thanks to a new augmented reality feature coming to Niantic’s hit mobile game. Called Go Snapshot, the feature will let trainers take pics of any of the Pokémon they currently have in storage against real-world backdrops. Players can already take AR-powered photos of Pokémon in Pokémon Go when they’re attempting to catch them. But Go Snapshot will offer the chance to do a photo shoot with your favorite Pokémon anytime, anywhere. Automatic Transfer Switch Suppliers for Sale Select a Pokémon and tap on the screen to throw its Poké Ball to that spot. Once your Pokémon is situated in the ideal spot, you can then move around it to find the best angle for your photo. Is your Pokémon distracted or looking the wrong way?

Photos really do not do this car justice. It’s a designer’s car. It’s an engineer’s car.

Photos really do not do this car justice. It’s a designer’s car. It’s an engineer’s car. And, most importantly, it is a driver’s car. And if you’re just a happy grandma looking for an efficient way to get your groceries home or a middle-aged man surviving the daily commute, it’s also your car. I made it about to the end of my street before I said to myself, “I really love this car!” After many more miles over all kinds of roads, I simply added more reallys to that statement. Yeah, all that because of a compact Japanese hatchback. It all starts with the car’s exterior style, an exemplification of Mazda’s KODO design philosophy that includes flowing curves juxtaposed with sharp creases. Crisp lines extend from the black mesh grille to define the hood. Chrome trim around the windows and complex curves of the distinguishing C-pillar add beauty, but so do the sculpted surfaces of the doors. Adaptive LED headlamps and round taillamps are neatly tucked into the facias. I could stare into the deep Soul Red Crystal Metallic paint for days. Black 18-inch alloy wheels set it to pavement. As we visit the interior, keep in mind this is a Mazda and not an Audi or Alfa. Drink in the oxblood r...

Blow Molding: New Machines Take on Challenging Shapes : Plastics Technology

From very small to very large, from hotel amenity bottles to automotive jounce bumpers, new and upgraded machines tackle difficult jobs while improving productivity, quality, and energy efficiency. Part of the trend to larger all-electric shuttles is the new Hesta700, the company’s biggest model yet, with 22-metric-ton clamp. Ossberger has upgraded its unique Pressblower machine for production of automotive jounce bumpers from copolyester TPE. Special molds convert injection machines to injection-blow. Engel e-motion 220 T with Foboha four-station cube mold and Engel easix robot. New Nissei ASB-70DPH/DB is unusual in adding “double-blow” heat-set capability to a one-stage ISBM machine. Some two dozen new or enhanced machines of extrusion blow shuttle, suction blow, injection-blow, and one- and two-stage stretch-blow types at the show—plus other new developments in extruders, tooling, and controls—indicated a healthy level of innovation in blow molding. While many of these developments are aimed at increased productivity and energy savings (witness the many all-electric, hybrid, an servohydraulic entries), a number of them are tailored for production of unusual or challenging sh...

Bolt Mobility brings a new group of escooters to Baltimore

After a brief time with three escooter brands around town, Baltimore once again has four micromobility options. Bolt Mobility launched last week in the city bringing a fleet of yellow escooters. Known as Chariots, they’ll be operating in neighborhoods throughout the city. Under the permit, the company can start with a local fleet of 150 scooters, and increase gradually up to 1,000. The company has grabbed headlines for the entrepreneurial moves made by its famed cofounder Usain Bolt. “Given my vast travel experience all around the world for The Olympic Games, I have seen traffic congestion increase year-over-year and I believe that affordable and clean transportation solutions are needed in all cities so people can arrive to their jobs, appointments and classes on time,” Bolt said in a statement. “Maryland is my home state and Baltimore is an especially exciting city for us to launch in as during my time studying at the University of Maryland Baltimore Campus, I became intimately familiar with what draws people to this great city, while also experiencing the transportation challenges that impact local traffic and mobility,” Haynes said in a statement. Now the company is enterin...

This device addresses resonances within components that, when oscillating concurrently but not in unison, produce electrical noise that smears sound. The QPoint generates what Nordost describes as a “subtle field” that affects electromechanical resonances within its immediate proximity, to cause them to vibrate in unison. Powered by a switch-mode power supply, the QPoint offers a choice of fields—users decide which is better. The upshot, according to Nordost, is a wider soundstage, increased detail and dynamics, enhanced coherency, and more. I wish I could tell you what I experienced when the QPoint was switched in and out, ...
