With MS, Treating Magnesium Deficiency Should Be a Priority

While Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups are the true “two great things that go great together,” calcium and magnesium take first place for those with MS. Many proponents of special diets for MS encourage the consumption of foods high in this mineral dynamic duo (along with other vitamins needed for effective absorption), and for seemingly good reason. Magnesium and calcium need each other in order to be effectively absorbed and used by the body. While many people may get enough calcium in their diet, it doesn’t hurt to double-check the nutritional guidelines. Postmenopausal women, in particular, should consider calcium supplementation. For this column, I want to focus on the role of magnesium for people with MS. According to several sources, the typical United States diet may not provide sufficient magnesium. In 2006, the Grand Forks Human Nutrition Research Center, publishing on the relationship between magnesium and exercise, found that a significant number of individuals do not consume sufficient magnesium. Similar results were found in another review, which also pointed out the potential effects of magnesium on neuromuscular function — something we can all agree is especially impor...

Laser texturing software guarantees quality and productivity

Smartpatch technology brings together smart machining strategies, increased quality, and optimized productivity to advance laser texturing as a manufacturing process. Significantly greater productivity—ranging from 20% to 40%, depending on the specific application—and quality are among the cost-saving benefits reported by early adopters of GF Machining Solutions’ latest-generation GF Laser Workstation Software.

Fireboxes Market Comprehensive Analysis of World Markets, Trade, Commodity Review Of Long-Term Forecasts 2017 – 2025

Fireboxes are present in every fireplace, be it in a steam engine or a house. They are used extensively for heating and to some extent, for cooking and decoration purposes. Fireboxes are available in various sizes as per the customers’ needs. A typical firebox consists of cast refractory panels, a fire grate or log pan and a fire screen. Cast refractory panels come in various sizes and designs and can be made of different materials, such as cement, bricks or metal. Prefabricated fireboxes come with metal panels. A fire grate or log pan is the chamber where fire is ignited using wooden logs or coal chips. It’s the most important component of a firebox. The fire screen separates the room from the fireplace, which ensures that no excess heat flows into the room, making the people inside uncomfortable. Fireboxes work on the principal of thermodynamics where the logs or other fueling agents, such as coal, are burnt in the fire grates. The heat thus produced is reflected by the refractory panels and the same is controlled using the fire screens. Fireboxes come in a number of variants as per the standards set by the Chimney Safety Institute of America (CSIA) and American Society for Te...

Woven or laminate? That’s the choice for anyone in the market for cruising sails – until

Woven or laminate? That’s the choice for anyone in the market for cruising sails – until now. Chris Beeson finds out how North Sails has blown the debate wide open with NORDAC With no seams or patches anywhere, these sails should furl and unfurl easily and smooth the airflow Credit: Amory Ross/North Sails As with most things in life, choosing new cruising sails involves compromise. You can opt for the longer life and lower cost of woven polyester sails and accept that, within a season, they will begin to stretch and you will lose full control because you can’t flatten the sails, which means more heeling, more weather helm, more leeway. There are more expensive sailcloths that weave in stretch-resistant fibres like Dyneema and Vectran, but the very fact that they are woven means they will still stretch as the fibres straighten under load. Woven polyester sails are by definition low modulus (resistance to stretch), low tenacity (breaking strength) compared to newer fibres, but remain popular because of their comparatively low cost, high UV resistance and high flex resistance, which means they can take a lot of punishment. In the early 1980s, another option became available: the p...

Verizon Offers Free Electronics Recycling Rally on Thursday

Verizon employees and contractors will gather in the parking lot of the company’s Dulles facility on Sept. 19 to collect unwanted electronics and other items from home or the office for recycling.          The free Recycling Rally is part of Verizon’s commitment to protect and preserve the environment by enabling employees and the public to be green at work and at home. The supplier disposing of the discarded items will adhere to Verizon’s zero-landfill objective, meaning the materials will be reused or recycled so that they do not end up in a landfill.  This will be the ninth Recycling Rally locally, and the first at Verizon’s Dulles center, at 22020 Broderick Dr. Continuous Plastic Recycle To Diesel Recycled items can include glass, plastics and aluminum cans; laptop and desktop computers; CRT (cathode ray tube) and LCD (liquid crystal display) monitors and televisions; computer cables, mice and keyboards; gaming consoles; telephones and answering machines; stereo and audio equipment; paper shredders; alarm clocks; printers; cameras; conferencing equipment; remote controls; earphones; small electronic appliances (such as coffee makers, toasters, toaster ovens and can openers);...

2020 Lamborghini Sian is the most powerful Lambo ever: photos, specs and design details

Lamborghini took the wraps off the Sián a few days ahead of the Frankfurt motor show, unveiling its most powerful car ever and the first to feature a hybrid powertrain fed by a supercapacitor. The Sián pairs the 785-hp 6.5-liter V12 borrowed from the Aventador with a 48-volt mild hybrid that squeezes out an extra 34 hp for a total output of 819 hp. So it’s not the kind of hybrid meant for maximizing fuel efficiency during an urban commute, even though the Sián will rely on electric power alone at slow speeds, such as when looking for a parking spot in front of a fancy restaurant, which is where we imagine one might see it … if at all. The real technological marvel in the Sián is its method of energy storage: It’s not a traditional lithium-ion battery, as in just about all EVs and hybrids, but the aforementioned supercapacitor, tech that was tested in the Aventador. The automaker says it’s three times lighter than a traditional lithium-ion battery that produces the same amount of power — Lamborghini placed it between the bulkhead and the cockpit for optimal weight distribution — with the entire mild-hybrid system, including the motor, weighing ...

Fact – we spend 355 hours of our lives buying period products. Those of us who

Fact – we spend 355 hours of our lives buying period products. Those of us who are lucky to afford them, anyway. But how much time do we spend considering the environmental impact of all those bleached polyester sanitary towels and individually wrapped tampons in plastic casings? Almost none. Which, when you consider that single-use period products are the fifth most common waste product washed up on our shores, is a little bonkers. Next time you go for a romantic stroll on the beach, just take a moment to consider the nine used tampon applicators that find a new home on the sand every kilometre. From the applicator and string on a tampon, to the backing on a sanitary towel, to the wrapping you buy them in, your chosen period product could be made of up to 90% plastic. But, it’s not just the environment that’s suffering as the result of plastic-based period products – it’s our bodies and our budgets as well. We’re fastidious about buying paraben-free beauty products, won’t touch fruit and veg grown using pesticides and know the ingredients list of our daily bowl of cereal intimately, but how much do you know about what goes into making y...

HP-RTM for serial production of cost-effective CFRP aerostructures: CompositesWorld

CTC has demonstrated HP-RTM parts with 60-percent fiber volume and less than 2 percent voids, molded in 20 minutes, such as this 1.5-meter-by-0.5-meter CFRP rib, representing possible aerospace primary structures. Working with Airbus Helicopters and KraussMaffei in the SPARTA project, Alpex Technologies designed and built HP-RTM tooling using automotive best practices, which was used to produce a demonstrator frame for the Airbus A350 passenger door, currently manufactured by Airbus Helicopters using low-pressure RTM. RTM tooling for the A330 spoiler hinge fitting in action, illustrating Alpex’s experience and innovation. When resin transfer molding (RTM) began transitioning into high-pressure RTM (HP-RTM) roughly a decade ago, it was mostly lauded for automotive applications, reducing composite part cycle times from hours to less than 2 minutes. Less has been said about applying this technology to aerospace parts. The aircraft industry has a long history with conventional RTM, including its use to produce thousands of carbon fiber-reinforced plastic (CFRP) fan blades and containment cases for commercial aircraft engines. Airbus has even prototyped a 7-meter-long, one-piece co...
