Hang a right a few miles past the Dirty Devil River, bump down Cow Dung Road,

Hang a right a few miles past the Dirty Devil River, bump down Cow Dung Road, and the barren, red landscape beyond morphs from mere desert into something, well, otherworldly. Men and women in spacesuits and oxygen tanks pick their way around boulders. One collects soil samples. Another launches a drone. Since 2001, the Mars Desert Research Station, a small complex that includes a laboratory, living quarters, observatories, a repair shop and a greenhouse, has served as a reliable stand-in for an actual base on Mars. The station is operated by the Mars Society, a collection of 10,000 space enthusiasts from more than 40 countries dedicated to exploring and settling the red planet. Researchers here pretend they are 140 million miles from Earth rather than seven miles from Duke’s Slickrock Grill and the Whispering Sands Motel in Hanksville. Now with NASA’s plan to land humans on Mars by 2033 and the promise of commercial space travel, interest in the station has soared. Engineers, physicians, geologists, astronomers, biologists and others come to test ideas related to living on Mars. Last month, more than 500 college students from 10 countries took part in the station’s annual Unive...

As of mid-February, the direction of steel prices in the near term was almost as big

As of mid-February, the direction of steel prices in the near term was almost as big a mystery as prices in the future. (For companies looking for a way to get a better handle on possible steel price increases or minimizing risk in their steel supply chain, see the sidebar What Does the Future Say About Steel Prices?). Multiple mills announced a $40/ton hike in the price of flat-rolled steel products in January, but weeks later it remained unclear if the increase would have much effect on the spot market. Just because mills announce an increase does not mean they will collect it. Much depends on the support the increase gets from steel distributors and ultimately what the market is willing to bear given the current demand. As of Feb. 12, the Price Momentum Indicator from Steel Market Update (SMU) was set at “neutral” on flat-rolled steel, as the price direction was unclear. (All prices below are FOB the mill, east of the Rockies.) The price of hot-rolled steel averaged $680/ton ($34/cwt), with lead times of two to five weeks. Cold-rolled steel was selling at an average price of $810/ton ($40.50/cwt), with lead times of four to eight weeks. The benchmark price for galvanized 0.06...

Welcome to the exciting world of screen-printing. It is one of the last home based businesses that can be started with little initial investment and with very little training. Remember you do not have to be an artist or have a business mindset to be successful at running a silk-screening business. We have watched hundreds of people become successful entrepreneurs with silk-screening who have never printed a T-shirt before in their life. What Are Screen Printing Machines Used For?

Do not limit yourself to t-shirts; there are sweatshirts, jackets, and polos. With the increasing mark...

How Hydraulic Jacks Work Register ico-categories ico-open ico-close ico-supplier ico-white-paper-case-study ico-product ico-cad

A jack is a device that uses force to lift heavy loads. The primary mechanism by which force is applied varies, depending on the specific type of jack, but is typically a screw thread or a hydraulic cylinder. Jacks may be categorized based on the type of mechanism used to generate the lifting force, typically mechanical power, hydraulic power, or pneumatic power. Mechanical jacks, such as the commonly used car jacks, lift heavy equipment and are rated based on the lifting capacity, which is typically expressed in terms of the number of tons that the jack can handle. Hydraulic jacks tend to have higher lifting capacities than mechanical jacks owing to the amount of force that can be generated by the hydraulic cylinders which product the lifting action. Common forms of hydraulic jacks include bottle jacks and floor jacks. Hydraulic jacks function based on a concept in fluid mechanics known as Pascal’s Principal. Essentially, if two cylinders (a large and a small one) are connected by an incompressible fluid, and a given amount of pressure is applied to one cylinder, that same pressure is imparted to the second cylinder through the fluid connecting them. However, because pressure i...

(June 18, 2019) – Young adulthood can be a pivotal point in life where every decision can lead to unexpected adventure and opportunities. This rang true in 2012 for a young Georgian man whose ambition and desire would lead him on a new course. James Wright was attending Georgia State University, pursuing a degree in nursing, when the 19-year-old decided he needed a new challenge and a different path than everyone else in his family. “I realized I was only pursuing nursing because it just seemed right since my mom was a nurse,” said Wright. He saw the Navy as an exciting opportunity, but he took it a step further when he wen...
