If you’ve ever left your stylist’s or barber’s chair with  perfectly coiffed and voluminous hair feeling

If you’ve ever left your stylist’s or barber’s chair with  perfectly coiffed and voluminous hair feeling ready to take on the world, only to have your efforts fall flat when it comes time to recreate the look on your own, we’re going to let you in on a secret: It’s probably your blow dryer’s fault. Yes, that’s right — the secret to getting shiny, bouncing salon-level hair at home is as easy as adding a great hair dryer to your arsenal to make blowouts at home a breeze. And no matter your hair’s texture, letting strands dry on their own often ends in a whole lot of frizz and the kind of volume you don’t want.  While there are some pretty impressive hair dryers out there to get the job done, not everyone wants to shell out a few hundred on a pricey Dyson model. (You know, the one that topped our list of best hair dryers for every budget.) The good news is, there are plenty of solid hair dryers out there at a much lower price point that still work impressively — without skipping right to a travel-size option.  As with any budget-friendly option, there’s some give and take when it comes to opting for a lower-priced blow dryer. For instance, the dryer may not last as long or co...

Review: The Polaris Slingshot Is The Most Fun You Can Have On Three Wheels

They stood in single file lines winding from the curb to the yard. Everyone wanted a ride. Parents poked cameras over shoulders to get a snapshot and a better spot in line. They called it Batmobile, go-kart, trike-a-bike, three-wheeler, the Thing. The Thing was a Polaris Slingshot. The reaction was the same regardless of age: a grin rising with the engine note, then the outside hand shot out for the awww shucks bar on the frame, and then, the best part, an eruption of sound as if the engine were ripping out of their chest. Afterward, everyone loved it. And everyone said it was fun. The dozens who rode and the many more who saw said, “What is that thing?”  Polaris Slingshot is what it isn’t: It is neither car nor motorcycle. It’s missing a lot of things besides a roof. It doesn’t have doors, it doesn’t have a fourth wheel, it doesn’t have vents or heating and air conditioning, doesn’t have modern conveniences such as steering wheel controls, USB ports, or windshield wipers because there isn’t much of a windshield. What the three-wheeler has in abundance is its reason for being: fun.  No other vehicle in the hundreds of vehicles I’ve test driven has elicited this many comments, ca...

Part 2: Why Shoulder Bolts are Too Important to Ignore : Plastics Technology

Let’s start off by clarifying two frequently misused names given to shoulder bolts. If the function of a shoulder bolt is to limit the distance a plate or any mold component travels, it is referred to as a range bolt. In addition to limiting travel, range bolts also serve as a safety feature. They ensure a floating plate won’t slide off its guide pins or leader pins during mold assembly, disassembly, or maintenance within the molding machine. Range bolts are almost always used in three-plate molds to control the distance that the “X” or “X-1” plate travels when stripping the runner off the sucker pins. They are also used in stripper-plate molds for the same purpose—to limit the distance the stripper plate travels when ejecting a part. Figure 1 depicts a typical installation of a range bolt. If the function of a shoulder bolt is to pull a plate or any mold component, then it is called either a stripper bolt, or a puller bolt. Since there is an exception to every rule, sometimes a shoulder bolt has a dual function, where it can be both a range bolt and a stripper bolt. A common example of this is in three-plate molds, where a shoulder bolt is located between the X-1 plate and the ...

We’re Driving A Suzuki Jimny, What Do You Want To Know?

It’s not very often that an affordable car comes along and captures the hearts of enthusiasts across the globe. The new Suzuki Jimny is one of the rare few that has. Unveiled in its newest form in mid-2018, the latest-generation Jimny has been extremely well received, thanks largely to its cute exterior design and in some markets, it even sold out for 2019. Sure, it may have failed the moose test and isn’t particularly safe but it sure is capable when taken on an off-road adventure. Later this week, we’ll get the keys to a new Jimny and will put it to the test in a variety of situations. From what we’ve heard, the Jimny isn’t all that practical to use on a daily basis. This is hardly surprising when you consider its tiny 1.5-liter four-cylinder engine offers up just 101 hp and 96 lb-ft (130 Nm) of torque. When the pavement turns to gravel is where the Jimny is really meant to come into its own. Before we jump behind the wheel of this pint-sized Mercedes-Benz G-Class, we want you to let us know any questions you have about the Jimny that you may want answered. Additionally, feel free to give us some suggestions about various off-road tests we should perform to see just how capab...

A group of 50 forward-thinking dairy farmers from Northern Ireland took part in a two-day educational

A group of 50 forward-thinking dairy farmers from Northern Ireland took part in a two-day educational tour incorporating a visit to two units, each milking over 1,000 cows in southwest Scotland. The group also visited AgriScot as part of the excursion. Norbrook, the UK’s only homegrown veterinary pharmaceutical company, hosted the popular trip – which was oversubscribed – as part of its efforts to support and serve the farming community in the shift towards smart and sustainable agriculture. The initiative was organised in cooperation with National Milk Records (NMR), the leading supplier of milk recording services to the UK. Southwest Scotland is home to the highest concentration of dairy farms. The Forsyth family owns a large-scale livestock enterprise and the group visited their 500-hectare, Broadwigg unit at Whithorn, where Dave Ellis, the herd manager has been in charge for three years. Mr Ellis now manages 1,310 cows and he is constantly fine-tuning herd management to get the most from them. Housed year-round, the cows are carefully monitored to achieve a calving interval of 393 days. Rolling milk yield averages 10,500 litres. Age at first calving is 2 years an...

Engineering single-atom dynamics with electron irradiation

Atomic engineering is envisioned to involve selectively inducing the desired dynamics of single atoms and combining these steps for larger-scale assemblies. Here, we focus on the first part by surveying the single-step dynamics of graphene dopants, primarily phosphorus, caused by electron irradiation both in experiment and simulation, and develop a theory for describing the probabilities of competing configurational outcomes depending on the postcollision momentum vector of the primary knock-on atom. The predicted branching ratio of configurational transformations agrees well with our atomically resolved experiments. This suggests a way for biasing the dynamics toward desired outcomes, paving the road for designing and further upscaling atomic engineering using electron irradiation. Controlling the exact atomic structure of materials is an ultimate form of engineering (1, 2). Atomic manipulation and atom-by-atom assembly can create functional structures that are hard to synthesize chemically (3–6), e.g., exactly positioning atomic dopants to modify the properties of carbon nanotubes and graphene (7). Nitrogen (N) or phosphorus (P) dopants might be useful in quantum informatics d...

Mountune lleva el Ford Focus RS por encima de los 500 CV

Mountune es un respetado preparador británico que cuenta con el respaldo de Ford en el país. Con la llegada del nuevo Mercedes-AMG A 45 S y sus 421 CV, parece que este compacto se queda escueto en cuanto a potencia se refiere. Hay quienes 350 CV pueden parecerle pocos, y por eso Mountune ha lanzado un par de kits que pueden elevar la potencia del Ford Focus RS por encima de los 500 CV. Los nuevos paquetes se encuentran en el pináculo de la montaña en cuanto a las preparaciones sobre el Ford Focus RS se refiere. El primero de ellos, bautizado como M450, intercambia el turbocompresor de fábrica por una unidad BorgWarner EFR-6758 más grande, especialmente configurada por Mountune. También se añade un convertidor catalítico de alto flujo, abrazaderas de acero inoxidable más fuertes y nuevos manguitos de silicona. Tampoco faltan rodamientos cerámicos o un escape con catalizador deportivo y downpipe (ideal para los más macarras). Esta etapa aumenta la potencia de salida del Focus RS hasta los 450 CV y 580 Nm de par motor, 100 CV y 110 Nm más que el modelo de serie. Si quieres este kit, se puede pedir a través de su página web o bien optar por que nos lo monten en sus instalaciones de ...

Vizio P-Series Quantum review: Can’t afford a 65-inch OLED? Here’s the next-best thing

The Good The Vizio P-Series Quantum’s overall image quality is as good as any non-OLED TV on the market. It’s blindingly bright, offering a superb HDR image and great performance in a bright room. Effective full-array local dimming creates deep black levels and minimizes blooming. Styling is sleek and modern. The Bad OLED TVs have a better picture and don’t cost that much more than the Quantum’s list price. Some banding artifacts in 4K HDR material. Poor remote and smart TV features. Only available in a 65-inch size. The Bottom Line If you can’t afford an OLED TV, the Vizio P-Series Quantum is the closest you’ll get to picture quality perfection. Vizio’s P-Series Quantum is something special. It’s hands-down Vizio’s best TV ever, and one of the best-performing LCD TVs I’ve ever tested from any brand. It’s only available in a 65-inch size, model PQ65-F1. And the list price is expensive for a Vizio at $2,100. At that price you’re close to 65-inch OLED TV territory. The Quantum isn’t as good as LG’s cheapest 2018 OLED, the B8 series, nor is it as good as LG’s 2017 OLED models, which are still ...
