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...

At last a screen print supplier & machine manufacturer based in Krugersdorp

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? Everywhere you look there are printed t-shirts, creative prints or simply a printed logo to designate a business. Any way you look at it, it means there is money to be made advertising someone’s business or latest fad. Advertising with t-shirts works! It has proven to be one of the most effective ways to get a message out, with hundreds or even thousands of walking billboards that your advertisers pay you for! It does not get better than that. For the last 25 years we watched the industry grow each year with the demand for printed t-shirts increasing to all-time highs according to industry statistics. 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...

Climate Neutral certification launched at Outdoor Retailer in Denver

Peak Design CEO Peter Dering and Jonathan Cedar, the CEO and co-founder of BioLite, operate their companies as carbon-neutral entities. Now they’ve helped create a path for the rest of the outdoor industry to follow suit. On Tuesday, the two executives used the Colorado Convention Center floor as a launching pad for a new certification effort they’ve helped bring about: Climate Neutral. Like a farmer who puts a “certified organic” sticker to a bag of oranges to demonstrate that no synthetic chemicals were used to grow them, the Climate Neutral badge would be a clear sign to consumers that the companies they buy from are tracking their carbon footprint, reducing it and paying to offset it 100 percent. Dering, Cedar and partners have created an independent nonprofit organization — called Climate Neutral — to help brands measure, reduce and offset their carbon footprints and award the certifications. The nonprofit has its own booth on the exhibition hall floor for Outdoor Retailer’s summer show where interested companies can sign up and learn about carbon-reduction strategies and even get help buying carbon credits. Cedar, whose company creates products that use off-grid energy suc...

These recipes are part of a new partnership between Christopher Kimball and the cooks at Milk

These recipes are part of a new partnership between Christopher Kimball and the cooks at Milk Street and the Globe Magazine’s Cooking column. Building a better burger isn’t difficult — it just requires rethinking how the patty is flavored. We give a too-often too-dry turkey burger a makeover with a flavorful panade — a blend of bread crumbs, mayonnaise, and herbs that traps moisture in the meat. We use smoked paprika, cumin, and black pepper to enliven our spicy Cuban burger — and in the process discover how to keep the ground beef from becoming dense and compacted. These deeply savory burgers are inspired by a recipe by Ignacio Mattos, chef of Estela in New York and author of a book by the same name. Mattos uses fish sauce as a seasoning for steak, but we opted for similarly salty and umami-rich Worcestershire sauce. We blend it with rosemary and garlic to create our basting mixture. These seasonings, combined with a simple Taleggio cheese sauce, make these burgers richer, more elegant, and far more flavorful than your average cheeseburger. We recommend brioche buns or Kaiser rolls, which hold up better than standard hamburger buns. As for toppings, we like to keep it simple: s...
