Electric cars are all the rage lately, but let’s not forget about the old standby –

Electric cars are all the rage lately, but let’s not forget about the old standby – internal combustion. The modern internal combustion engine is a marvel of engineering. Today’s engines and surrounding systems have better power, greater fuel economy, and lower emissions than anything that has come before. Centuries’ worth of engineering hours have gone into improving every aspect of the engine – with one notable exception. No automotive manufacturer has been able to eliminate the engine’s camshaft in a piston powered-production vehicle. The irony here is that camless engines are relatively easy to build. The average hacker could modify a small four-stroke engine for camless operation in their workshop. While it wouldn’t be a practical device, it would be a great test bed for experimentation and learning. A multi-cylinder gasoline engine is a complex dance. Hundreds of parts must move in synchronicity. Valves open and close, injectors mist fuel, spark plugs fire, and pistons move up and down. All follow the four-stroke “Intake, Compression, Combustion, Exhaust” Otto cycle. The camshaft controls much of this by opening and closing the engine’s spring-loaded intake and exhaust val...

From keen gardeners and allotment holders looking for somewhere to keep their tools, to the DIYers in need of a workshop, through to those who want to create an extra room or two to use as an office, a place to relax or even somewhere guests can sleep in. With so many functional considerations for the modern shed, it’s no surprise that there’s a lot of competition among manufacturers, who produce thousands of products for us to choose from. To help us put together this list of shed suggestions we consulted some experts on the subject, including Cuprinol Shed of the Year founder Andrew Wilcox (aka Uncle Wilco) and authors of Haynes Shed Manual, John Coupe and Alex Johnson. Most of the sheds we looked at are produced by businesses with a national presence, but it’s also worth checking suppliers in your area – you’ll likely find a great choice of sheds fro...

The Best Travel Coffee Mugs For Taking Your Brew to Go

You can (and should) invest in great coffee beans, store them in an airtight container, and brew them with the best gear around. But pouring that elixir into anything less than the best coffee mug is a great way to waste all of that money and effort. Bad mugs don’t keep hot coffee hot or cold coffee cold, leaving you with lukewarm swill. Oh, and they leak. The only thing worse than drinking bad coffee is not even having bad coffee to drink because most of it ended up on your shirt. But deciding to ditch that free mug you got for donating to NPR ten years ago is the easy part. Finding a worthy replacement, with so many brands, features, and price points available, is difficult. We reached out to Bryan Duggan, Eastern Divisional Manager for Counter Culture Coffee and coffee-loving dad, for some expert guidance. He says that you actually can tell a lot just by looking at a mug. Pick one that’s compact, without a top-heavy shape that can fit into a cupholder. Make sure the lid is easy to operate and closes with a dependable seal. Duggan likes mugs with insulted walls that can keep both cold brew and hot coffee ready to drink for hours. We do, too. This slender, Japanese-designed mug...

Russell Westbrook and Jordan Brand are collaborating with Opening Ceremony to release the latter’s first athlete-design

Russell Westbrook and Jordan Brand are collaborating with Opening Ceremony to release the latter’s first athlete-design project. “I’ve always loved fashion and the creative process when it comes to designing. When the opportunity came for me and Jordan Brand to collaborate with another brand, Opening Ceremony was a perfect match,” says Westbrook. “I liked the idea of doing something with bold color patterns and adventurous silhouettes, and I’m excited to see this collection come to life.” The apparel pieces — including an overcoat, a pant-trouser hybrid, a color-blocked track jacket and more — modify classic Air Jordan looks with new proportions and details based on the point guard’s irreverent personal style. “When Russ and I sat down together to design, it started a creative dialogue and synergy of true collaboration,” says Opening Ceremony co-founder and creative director Humberto Leon. “The resulting collection shows how, together, we reworked our favorite Air Jordan essentials into new garments. We’re looking forward to seeing how the public puts their own spin on these pieces by incorporating them into their daily wardrobes.” The O...

Blu-ray Review: Andrei Tarkovsky’s Andrei Rublev on the Criterion Collection

Andrei Tarkovsky’s second feature, Andrei Rublev, takes place against a vast backdrop that magnificently illuminates the vision and soulfulness of the eponymous 15th-century monk and icon painter (Anatoly Solonitsyn), evincing a complex understanding of spirituality and faith that would inform all of the Russian auteur’s subsequent films. Andrei is introduced to us as a man who radiates serene piety, projecting the ideal image of devoutness as he travels the countryside of the Grand Duchy of Moscow, visiting cathedrals in search of places to ply his art. His behavior sharply contrasts with the nervousness of his colleagues, fellow monk artists Daniil (Nikolai Grinko) and Kirill (Ivan Lapikov), who move through the cold, harsh land in scuttling fashion, motions that give away their anxiety about leaving the safety of their monastery. The other monks’ pragmatism becomes a foil for Andrei’s idealism, which is increasingly challenged over the course of Andrei Rublev’s running time. Daniil and Kirill’s fears are somewhat justified by the despair of feudalism that rages outside their monastery. Incessant rain turns barren lands—dotted by the craggy, inextricable stumps of recently fel...
