These 3 tires are available for next winter – Retail

The Hakkapeliitta R2 SUV (pictured) and the R2 feature the “Grip Claw” design — dense sipes in the shoulder area for snow traction. Nokian Tyres plc invited its largest dealers in North America to Finland to test its latest winter tires at its Ivalo Testing Center located 200 miles north of the Arctic Circle in Finnish Lapland. The Hakkapeliitta R2, Hakkapeliitta R2 SUV and WR G3 combine snow and ice traction with silica-based compounding for low rolling resistance. They are available through the parent company’s North American subsidiary, Nokian Tyres Inc. 1. Hakkapeliitta R2. Like the tire it is designed to replace, the Hakkapeliitta R, the non-studded R2 features a directional symmetric tread pattern. It has superior ice and snow grip thanks to improved compounding and siping design, including dense sipes at different angles in the shoulder area. The new compound also contains millions of sharp particles for traction. The company says it hopes to patent this technology — what it calls its Cyro Crystal Concept. Although Matti Morri, technical customer service manager, would not reveal what the particles are made of, he did say corn, rice or walnut...

Global Uninterruptible Power Supplies Market, Forecast to 2025

The global UPS market is witnessing growth due to data center demand across key countries such as the U.S, U.K, Germany, China, Japan, UAE, and African countries. UPS is an essential component to ensure uninterrupted, high power quality to equipment that cannot afford an interruption or disturbance in power. The market revived after a slump and is witnessing steady growth throughout the forecast period. Among the vertical markets, the commercial segment has high contribution, while the data center segment has the highest growth rate, while most of the UPS used in data center is the above 20 kVA UPS segment. UPS is a mature, well-established market, with strong demand across different end-user applications. Smaller power ranges face the challenge of fierce competition and commoditization while larger power ranges have the advantage of high barriers for entry and high price margin. The UPS market showcases different market structures depending on the power capacity. In less-than-50 kVA, the market is fragmented, commoditized, with strong contribution from local participants (especially in the less-than-10 kVA), while above 50 kVA, the market much more consolidated, with few partic...

WOLF STREET Beer Mugs Are Coming. Here’s the Design for the Soon-Infamous “Nothing Goes to Heck in a Straight Line” Mug

That sounded like a fun idea, but I have neither the time nor the talent to create things like this and deal with the logistics. So I approached our iconic commenter, WOLF FEST name-tag creator and writer-cartoonist-artist Kitten Lopez. In our preliminary discussions, I said that we should do a coffee mug because it’s simpler and a good place to start. But she instantly put her foot down and said, no way, it has to be a beer mug. The theme on WOLF STREET is a beer mug, she said, including the donation button at the bottom of each article, where you can send “beer money” to support the site. End of discussion. Kitten Lopez is now in charge of the entire project, from design to execut...

Modellers and makers who have been around the block for a few decades generally have their

Modellers and makers who have been around the block for a few decades generally have their preferred materials. Balsa wood, sheet metal, brass tube… these were all staples of the hobbyist workshop. Composites are very much the new kid on the block and are starting to gain more of a foothold in the hobby marketplace. [Anthony] has been experimenting in this area, and has created some useful attachments for carbon fiber tubing. The fittings are designed to be lasercut from aluminium or 3D printed. The rod ends are a simple two-piece design that slots together, before insertion into the carbon fiber rod. [Anthony] shows off a series of rods being used as linkages with a stepper motor, before performing pull-out tests on the links. Installed with cyanoacrylate glue, the link holds up to a pull load in excess of 180 lbs. The strength is impressive, and [Anthony] also talks about how to install the appropriate bearings to use the links for motion projects. Overall, these links will likely prove useful to anyone using carbon fiber rods in a build, and helpfully, the required files are all available on GitHub. The source material is now cheap and readily available online, and is strong ...

Best personalised children’s books that make the perfect Christmas gift for kids

Stick a child’s name on a flimsy volume – easy enough given recent developments in printing technology – and charge four times what anyone would pay for the same text otherwise. A good personalised book, however, can be a lovely keepsake present, and there is no denying that young children in particular get a certain thrill from seeing their name, or even an illustrated or photographic version of themselves, in print. Below is a selection of personalised books that we think are worthy of gift status. There should be something to suit most tastes, among them. You can trust our independent reviews. We may earn commission from some of the retailers, but we never allow this to influence selections, which are formed from real-world testing and expert advice. This revenue helps us to fund journalism across The Independent. This labour of love from two Devonian entrepreneurs is a lovely gift that our tester has returned to repeatedly since receiving it two years ago. Each handmade copy is personalised, not just with the child’s name, but with thoughtful details such as their favourite songs, hobbies and friends, which are woven into the story. A photo on the final page transforms the ...

The random pipes all over Plymouth with a very smelly history

You have probably been walking past these giant ornate poles for years without knowing what they are. The humble stink pipe, also known as stench pipes, or sewer vent pipes, have been a curious feature of our cities since the late 18th century, when our sewage systems were far from sophisticated. Although most are disguised as brick chimneys or metal columns looking a bit like lamp posts, some are ornately decorated with gold etchings and elaborate engravings. And in Wyndham Lane, behind North Road West, you will find an 100-year-old, 60-ft-high, red brick chimney which ensured, and still does ensure, any sewer gases are dispersed well above both head and house height. It is the only one of its kind left in the area. Stink pipes are no longer installed because there is no need for them in the 21st century, but South West Water still maintains those still in existence. Doctor Caradoc Peters, programme leader of the BSc (Hons) in archaeology at the University of Plymouth, says stink pipes were a feature of sewage systems of the Industrial Revolution, from the late 18th century onwards. “They were developed to help ventilation in long underground sewer tunnels,” he explained. “Sew...

& Other Stories Black Friday sale is finally here – and we’re very excited about it

& Other Stories Black Friday sale is finally here – and we’re very excited about it here at ELLE. In fact, tbh, this is one we’ve been waiting for all year. Because, although the Scandi brand can drop a decent sale, it’s not partial to a promotional code or even student discounts. So if you want one of its cult cropped cardigans or a pair of leather trousers, you’ll need to pay full price (items like these usually sell out rather than make it into clearance). Until Black Friday that is. It’s overtaken Boxing Day as the biggest retail event of the year. Which makes sense really, since no-one wants to venture out of their Boxing Day food coma to brave the shops…and most of us are broke after Christmas anyway. For some brands, like Glossier, Monica Vinader, Missoma and & Other Stories, it’s one of the only time they actually discount anything. So we’re pleased to say that, you can get 20% off absolutely everything on & Other Stories’ site right now. Just type the code ‘NOIR20′ at the checkout to see your basket total drop (a sight guaranteed to make you giddy.) Loved by every kind of woman, including roya...
