At the forefront | Logistics, Trucking & Transport News

YPE html PUBLIC “-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN” “http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-transitional.dtd”> More than a decade ago, Blanchard’s Haulage embraced a burgeoning Performance Based Standards scheme to find an innovative solution to a dimensional transport dilemma. The end result is a fleet of distinctive 8×4 Volvo crane trucks that have provided a critical solution for a major customer while still delivering much needed versatility. For the best part of 45 years Blanchard’s Haulage, based in Grafton in the Northern Rivers region of New South Wales, has partnered with Volvo Trucks Australia to obtain efficiencies and innovations in performance as it goes about delivering the best solutions for clients in infrastructure and the pole transport industry. Robert Blanchard, the Executive Officer of Blanchard’s Haulage, considers it a ground breaking business – and with good reason. Although the association with Volvo can be traced back to 1972 when the company purchased its first truck from the commercial vehicle manufacturer, it has consistently looked to adopt new technologies including the latest safety suites offered in the 1990...

If you don’t yet have a toaster oven you can’t use with food, here’s yet another

If you don’t yet have a toaster oven you can’t use with food, here’s yet another reason: DIY powder coating. Powder coating is much harder and more durable than paint – a property imbued to it by the fact that it’s baked on to a part. [Thomas] had a go at powder coating some skateboard trucks, and with the right tools, found the process downright easy. [Thomas] only needed a few things to powder coat his parts, the first and most important being a powder coat gun. A few years ago, Craftsman produced a powder coat gun that’s still available on Amazon and eBay for about $50. Powders are plentiful and cheap in small quantities. The only other tools needed were an N95 or better respirator, some high temperature tape for masking off the part and a toaster oven. If you want to coat big parts, there are DIY oven options for that. After the part was sandblasted down to bare metal, [Thomas] masked off all the holes and threads of the part with polyimide tape. Any tape that’s capable of withstanding high temperatures will do, and most of us have a roll of Kapton sitting next to a 3D printer, anyway. The part is coated with powder via an electrostatic charge, and this means attaching a gr...

FAREWELL TO FLAME: Uponor ProPEX LF Brass Copper Press Adapters can be used with an expansion tool to create a flameless PEX-tocopper transition. High-efficiency boilers.

Using Uponor ProPEX LF Brass Copper Press Adapters and the M18 ProPEX Expansion Tool from Milwaukee Tools, technicians can create a PEX-to-co...

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.  Aqua Bike, Water Bike, Aquatic Bike, Underwater Bike, Water Exercise Bike –...

Recharge Your HVAC Trade Show Experience | 2019-03-18

TRY IT OUT: Keefer Rader, owner of Outlaw Mechnical in Sandia Park, New Mexico, and Gabriel Curry, a service tech at the company, checked out Milwuakee Tools’ battery-powered pipe threader. This year, my wife, Dorian, and I wanted to re-energize our AHR experience by taking one of our technicians to the show with us — Gabriel Curry. We’re sure glad that we did, and so is he. Naturally, the other guys were miffed that they didn’t get chosen. But hey, they’ll get their chance in years to come. The show is pure inspiration for me, and I look forward to starting my year with it. I was a bit curious to see what Gabe’s reaction would be. Sure enough, it was magic — like a kid’s first experience with fireworks. Gabe and I were able to compare notes and impressions on all of the new technology, tools, mechanical components, and equipment that we saw. HANDS ON: “In some cases, we actually had the opportunity to gain some hands-on experience,” Keefer Rader said. His participation in hilmor’s Fastest Hands competition is just one example. At the Taco booth, we were able to use Taco ECM circulators and zone valves. And walking through the Milwaukee Electric Tools booth was like walking thr...

Break Your Anxiety Cycle With This “Vigilant” Method

This Sunday, I’m thinking about breaking bad habits. Societally, when we think of bad habits, we typically think of vices like smoking cigarettes or compulsively checking Twitter. But anxiety can manifest as a bad habit, too. How can you break it? You have to uncover your triggers and examine what exactly is going on when you slip into an anxious cycle. Judson Brewer, Ph.D., the director of research and innovation at Brown University’s Mindfulness Center, acknowledges that people usually pause when they hear that anxiety can be a habit. But research indicates that feeling anxious can be a result of the same reward-based learning process that prompts all habits, positive and negative. A version of this article first appeared as the Sunday Scaries newsletter. Sign up for free to receive it on Sundays. He explained to me that we learn through positive and negative reinforcement, and these link to context-dependent memories. From an evolutionary perspective, it’s easy to see how habits can be a good thing. If we learn what makes us feel good — like a life-sustaining, calorie-filled meal — our brains will tell us to remember what we did to feel good and how to get back that feeling a...

The Million Mom March: Mass Mobilization Against Guns

On Mother’s Day 2000, record-setting demonstrations for gun control were held in Washington, D.C., and in 73 other cities. Organized by the “Million Mom March,” these demonstrations were hailed by much of the media at the decisive turning point in the political battle over gun ownership. This article takes a look at the history of the march, and some of the similarities and differences from 2018 anti-gun rallies. After growing up in Louisiana and graduating from Louisiana State University with a major in journalism, Donna Dees-Thomases began her career as a local television news reporter. Then she moved to Washington, as a staffer first for Democratic Sen. Bennett Johnston, then with Sen. Russell Long, both of Louisiana. Her autobiography makes no mention of her having any opinion on the gun control issues that those senators addressed during her time with them. (Her autobiography is Donna Dees-Thomases & Alison Hendrie, Looking for a Few Good Moms: How One Mother Rallied a Million Others Against the Gun Lobby (Emmaus, Penn.: Rodale, 2004).) After that, she became the publicist for CBS News anchor Dan Rather. By 1999, she had transitioned to a one-day-per-w...
