Bold SF drug-injection site plan faces just one big hurdle: Trump

In Mayor London Breed’s vision, a mobile trailer sits outside a health facility in San Francisco. Inside the safe injection site on wheels are case managers and health workers armed with clean syringes, cotton balls and tourniquets. Users can walk inside with their own heroin or other illegal drug and inject with staffers on hand to help ensure they don’t overdose. They can ride out their high in the adjacent health facility and learn about drug treatment services there, too. A nonprofit created solely to run the trailer manages it and maintains no other assets. It owns no building. That way, if federal authorities seize the illegal enterprise, all they get are a trailer and drug paraphernalia. The best part of this sensible idea? Fewer people dotting the surrounding neighborhood slumping against walls, jabbing needles into their necks and discarding dirty syringes on the sidewalks. Because now there’s somewhere to shoot up that isn’t outside — and somewhere for police and outreach workers to send them. For Breed, the plan to open the country’s first safe injection site has taken shape. What she says she needs now is a new president. Don’t we all. Whether through impeachment, e...

Each year, fashion and jewelry enthusiasts anticipate the first Monday in May for the most important

Each year, fashion and jewelry enthusiasts anticipate the first Monday in May for the most important of New York’s red carpet events, the Met Gala, which celebrates the opening of the Costume Institute’s annual fashion exhibit. This year it’s entitled “Camp: Notes On Fashion”.  Just hearing the name conjures up over-the-top, flamboyant and exaggerated looks. And many of the celebrities played it to the hilt, paying homage to what the exhibit is all about. Inspired by Susan Sontag’s well-known 1964 essay “Notes on Camp,”  which explores and describes ‘camp’, the exhibit covers theatre, excess, irony and parody in fashion. Some of the displays in different sections feature the drama, eccentricities as well as the gay subcultures that dates back to Versailles and other parts of Europe and America from the 19th and early 20th centuries. Alexander McQueen, John Galliano, Rei Kawakubo, Bob Mackie. Karl Lagerfeld  Elsa Schiaparelli, Moschino and Dior are some of the designers highlighted in the exhibit alongside painting and sculpture from the 17th century through the present day. Although 2018′s “Heavenly Bodies: Fashion and the Catholic Imagination” exhibit brought ...

15 of the best duvet covers and bedding sets for a stylish bedroom update 

An inviting bedding set might not solely induce candy goals as you tuck your self in after a protracted day: it may additionally present a much-needed splash of color, riot of print or array of sensual textures to an in any other case nondescript bed room. A brand new cover cowl or bedspread requires far much less of the dedication required when portray the partitions or buying furnishings – we like to consider it as like shopping for a shawl to brighten up your day, reasonably than investing in an entire new wardrobe.  So, how to decide on the correct cover cowl to create the proper sanctuary? Firstly, there’s the query of fashion: would you want a set that is female and floral, brilliant and striped, or geometric? Are you a follower of style courageous sufficient to deck your mattress in Extremely Violet? Or are you merely after a soothing impartial or pastel color scheme?  Then, in fact, there’s the fabric itself. Cotton is a well-liked alternative, and 100 cotton is probably the most breathable and ‘strokable’ in texture. The thread rely is used to guage the standard, and measures threads per sq. inch. In the meantime, cotton “fibre” refers back to the cotton used, and is a...

Microsoft Adds ‘Disable Legacy TLS’ Feature to Windows Server 2019

Microsoft announced the addition of a new Windows Server 2019 feature that will enable admins to enforce Transport Layer Security (TLS) versions by blocking legacy ones via certificate binding. “Beginning with KB4490481, Windows Server 2019 now allows you to block weak TLS versions from being used with individual certificates you designate,” says Microsoft. “We call this feature ‘Disable Legacy TLS’ and it effectively enforces a TLS version and cipher suite floor on any certificate you select.” Beginning with KB4490481, Windows Server 2019 now allows you to block weak TLS versions from being used with individual certificates you designate. This new “Disable Legacy TLS” feature helps make your transition to a TLS 1.2+ world easier https://t.co/SltLmQ71ct The Disable Legacy TLS feature makes it possible for services delivered locally or from online resources to offer “two distinct groupings of endpoints on the same hardware,” namely one that will only allow TLS 1.2+ traffic and another one designed to also support legacy TLS 1.0 traffic. While previously enforcing a specific TLS version would required additional hardware ...

Nikon’s Small Worlds photography competition announces 20 winners

An award-winning team of journalists, designers, and videographers who tell brand stories through Fast Company’s distinctive lens Nikon, the international technology company, is known for its specialty optical instruments, like microscopes, but also for its cameras—both of which are created from Nikon’s very own glass. For the last 45 years, the company has bolstered its left brain-meets-right brain image by hosting an annual photography competition: Nikon Small World. The nearly half century-old competition is unusual, in that it invites photographers and scientists alike to submit images of subjects visible under a microscope. The winners of this year’s contest were announced yesterday, and the images prove that it’s the details within that paint the bigger picture. The winning image, created by microscopy technician Teresa Zgoda and recent grad Teresa Kugler, depicts a technicolor turtle embryo. The team of two captured the embryo using fluorescence and stereo microscopy, which allowed for them to view the scientific specimen under a microscope and render it vividly for the public to enjoy. “Microscopy lets us zoom in on the smallest organisms and building blocks that c...

The best made-in-Chicago gift ideas for the holidays | Holiday Gift Guide

Local artist Joe Mills’s playing cards, printed on casino-quality linen card stock, immortalize Chicago royalty. Among the two decks he’s made, Jordan, Ditka, and Daley (Richard J. in one deck, Richard M. in the other) are kings; Chaka Khan and Oprah are queens; Harold Washington and Muddy Waters are jacks; and Bill Murray, of course, is the joker. —Jack Ladd $15 at shop.joemills.com. It’s sheer coincidence that Secret Hitler is launching as president-elect Donald Trump prepares to take office. The hidden-identity card game from the makers of Cards Against Humanity wasn’t originally meant as a commentary on contemporary politics but as a lighthearted exercise in bluffing—one that doubles as a sobering lesson in paranoia and manipulation to help explain Hitler’s rise to power. Five to ten players are assigned roles as liberals or fascists or the Fuhrer himself; the fascists work stealthily as moles to install their strong-armed leader while the liberals try to discover which player is the Secret Hitler and assassinate him before he assumes power. If that concept itself sounds a little hard to stomach, the game comes with Secret Santa as well as Secre...

Bollinger Motors reveals the price of its hand-built EVs—$125,000

While that’s a lot of money, it gets you a lot of BEV. There’s that 125kWh battery pack, although Bollinger isn’t quite ready to tell us more about its supplier or the pack design. The pack powers a pair of permanent magnet AC motors—one for each axle—each sending torque to the wheels via a two-speed transaxle (with a true neutral in case you need to tow it anywhere). Total power and torque output is a hefty 614hp (458kW) and 668lb-ft (905Nm), and the curb weight is surprisingly good at just 4,800lbs (2,177kg)—significantly lighter than either an Audi e-tron or Tesla Model X SUV. It has yet to be tested by the EPA for range, but with barn-door aerodynamics, Bollinger says it should go at least 200 miles (321km) on a single charge. The company says that, connected to a 400V DC fast charger, a charge takes 75 minutes, although founder Robert Bollinger told me, “me are working with our battery supplier on that final capability—more on that later” when I asked whether the B1 and B2 would be able to use the new generation of more powerful DC fast chargers (currently up to 150kW for 400V BEV architectures). On a 220V (level 2) charger, a full battery will...

Teacher repeatedly raped by former student who held her and daughter for 53 days

Mary Stauffer and her daughter Beth’s horrifying ordeal in Roseville, Minnesota, has been turned into a new Lifetime film starring How I Met Your Mother and American Pie actress Alyson Hannigan A teacher who was abducted and repeatedly raped by an obsessed former student has told how she and her daughter miraculously survived the horrifying ordeal. Mary Stauffer was 36 when she and her eight-year-old daughter Beth were kidnapped at gunpoint by her former algebra student Ming Sen Shiue. Shiue murdered a six-year-old bystander and then held the mother and daughter for 53 days until they managed to escape his home and raise the alarm. Almost 40 years on, their story has been turned into a new Lifetime film called Abducted: The Mary Stauffer Story, starring How I Met Your Mother and American Pie actress Alyson Hannigan. The mother and daughter, who were locked inside a room, managed to escape when Mary removed hinge pins from a door and broke it open while Shiue was at work. Speaking before the Lifetime film airs on TV, Mary told Fox News: “I held the door with one hand and I pulled the hinge pin with the other. It came out just like it was greased … it was a miracle. “B...
