Concept Concerto: Jeep And Mopar Wow 4×4 Fans With 7 Incredible New Vehicles

It’s become a tradition that Jeep and Mopar invade the town of Moab, Utah, with a collection of incredible concept vehicles during the annual Easter Jeep Safari event. Jeep and Mopar have trotted out some amazing concepts over the years. Who can forget 2012 and the Mighty FC, which was a nod to the Jeep Forward Control? In 2010, fans were wowed by the gritty Nukizer 715 that paid homage to the Kaiser M715. In 2011, one of the standouts was the Pork Chop, which had 850 pounds chopped from its weight. And in 2009, a concept debuted that is still talked about today—the Lower Forty Wrangler, which was shod with 40-inch tires and no suspension lift. For 2018, Jeep and Mopar unveiled seven notably different vehicles. They ranged from an impeccably restored and modified Wagoneer to a desert racing–inspired machine that worked as good as it looked. Over the next few pages you can read about these seven 4x4s, and included are little-known facts about this year’s batch of Jeep and Mopar concepts. We’ve also included our opinions on these rigs, because frankly, we always have an opinion. But that’s not all. There are many more photos of these rigs, as well as video, at fourwheeler.com! Ba...

Festo has developed its VOFC/VOFD solenoid valves and VACC solenoid coils that increase process safety across

Festo has developed its VOFC/VOFD solenoid valves and VACC solenoid coils that increase process safety across the entire system. VOCD/VOFD solenoid valves are backed by TÜV certificates up to SIL3 in accordance with IEC 61508. The valve housing is treated with Ematal anodizing to create a hard aluminum oxide layer with titanium oxide intercalations, to resist wear and abrasion. The 3/2- and 5/2-way valves are intended for deactivation of pneumatic drives in potentially explosive areas of chemical and petrochemical plants. The NAMUR flange pattern and integrated spring chamber ventilation protects quarter-turn actuators against contaminated ambient air and weather influences. The VACC solenoid coils are available for ignition protection types: Ex e mb, Ex ia, Ex db, and Ex d. Local and regional certifications are available.www.festo.com Miniature Solenoid Valve, CNC Solenoid Valve, Plastic Solenoid Valve – Baojie,https://www.baojie-pneumatic.com/

North Korea leader Kim Jong Un was an unremarkable child, book claims

North Korean leader Kim Jong Un was an entirely unremarkable child who was embarrassed by having to answer questions in class, according to a new book about the secretive dictator and his family. Kim’s academic shortcomings were so severe that they may have informed his future style of ruthless leadership, according to an excerpt from Anna Fifield’s “The Great Successor:The Divinely Perfect Destiny of Brilliant Comrade Kim Jong Un,” which Politico published on Wednesday. The book from the Beijing bureau chief for The Washington Post is on sale now. The excerpt details Kim’s formative years in Bern, the capital of Switzerland, where he attended an international school with his brother Kim Jong Chol, and lived with his aunt. It paints a picture of Kim as a forthright but not particularly academic child, who struggled to learn German and found it difficult to express himself in lessons.

Custom 1940 Packard woody pickup truck loaded with vintage style

Packard didn’t officially produce any pickup trucks after 1923, devoting itself instead to its acclaimed line of luxury cars.   But there were special-bodied Packards produced by coachbuilders for specific purposes.   The Pick of the Day is an interesting 1940 Packard described as a Henney woody truck, which has been built into a sympathetic resto-rod that retains much of its original style, aside from bold wood paneling on its flanks. The Henney Motor Company of Freeport, Illinois, installed custom bodies for limousines, hearses, funeral flower cars and taxicabs, and this Packard apparently started out as Henney flower car mounted on a 156-inch wheelbase, according to the Conroe, Texas, dealer advertising the Packard on ClassicCars.com. “At a point later in life, it was converted to a unique truck that you won’t find anywhere else,” the ad says. “The rear of the cab was provided from a ’52 Chevy Deluxe Cab pick-up and outfitted with a rear power window. “Unlike any classic truck you will find anywhere else, the front sides of the bed feature suicide doors. While the cab has been beautifully painted in a Dark Blue with crystal pearl, the doors and bed are beautifully outfitted w...

All 2,493 items targeted by China’s tariffs in US trade war — Quartz

China’s latest tariff retaliation, announced today, will hit some $60 billion in US exports, including hundreds of agricultural, mining, and manufactured products, threatening jobs and profits at companies around the United States.  Before the trade war starts in earnest, China bought about 17% of US agricultural exports and was a major market for other goods, from Maine lobster to Boeing aircraft. It has been the largest market for Apple iPhones since 2016. Since the escalation of tariffs, though, China has stopped buying soybeans and lobsters, and Apple warned it would miss its expected Christmas holiday sales figures because of trade tensions. In addition to the 25% tariffs below, Beijing also added 20% tariffs on 1,078 US products, 10% tariffs on 974 US products, and 5% tariffs on 595 US products (all links in Chinese). The list was translated from China’s ministry of finance press release using Google translate, and may be inexact in spots. Quartz also rearranged some items on the list to group them into categories, and they may not be in the order of their “harmonized tariff schedule” codes.  Knitted Protective, Knitted Flame Resistant, Muti-Functional Workwea – Har...

In situ microscopic observation of chitin and fungal cells with chitinous cell walls in hydrothermal conditions

Thank you for visiting nature.com. You are using a browser version with limited support for CSS. To obtain the best experience, we recommend you use a more up to date browser (or turn off compatibility mode in Internet Explorer). In the meantime, to ensure continued support, we are displaying the site without styles and JavaScript. Recent findings of intact chitin in fossil records suggest surprisingly high recalcitrance of this biopolymer during hydrothermal treatments. We also know in the experience of everyday life that mushroom, cells of which have chitinous cell walls, do not fall apart however long they are simmered. We used in situ optical microscopy to examine chitin and fungal cells with chitinous cell walls during hydrothermal treatments, and obtained direct evidence that they remained undegraded at temperatures well over 200 °C. The results show very hot and compressed water is needed to make mushrooms mushy. Chitin is a linear and nonionic polysaccharide made of N-acetylglucosamine units that are connected via β-1-4 glycosidic linkages1. It is the most abundant organic polymer in the marine environment2 and its annual production amounts to 106–107 tons3. Chitin is us...
