It looks like a tube made of glass but it’s actually aluminum. Well, aluminum with an asterisk beside it — this is not elemental aluminum but rather a material made using it. We got onto the buzz about “transparent aluminum” as a result of a Tweet from whence the image above came. This Tweet was posted by [Jo Pitesky], a Science Systems Engineer at the Jet Propulsion Lab in Pasadena. [Jo] reported that at a recent JPL technology open house she had the chance to handle a tube of material that looks for all the world like a section of glass tubing, but was billed as transparent aluminum. [Jo] tweeted this because it was an interesting artifact that few people get to play with and she’s right, this is fascinating! The the material itself is intriguing, and I immediately had practical questions like what is this stuff? What is it good for? How is it made? And is it really aluminum rendered transparent by some science fiction process? As with many things in life, the answer to that question is, “It depends.” In this case, it depends on how you define aluminum. Or more precisely, it depends on what your expectations are for a material that purports to be aluminum. Regular old aluminu...

3M exploring $1 bln sale of drug delivery systems unit -Bloomberg

<!–*/ */ /*–>*/ Industrial conglomerate 3M Co is exploring a sale of its drug delivery systems unit, which could fetch around $1 billion, Bloomberg reported on Friday, citing people with knowledge of the matter. Dec 6 (Reuters) – Industrial conglomerate 3M Co MMM.N is exploring a sale of its drug delivery systems unit, which could fetch around $1 billion, Bloomberg reported on Friday, citing people with knowledge of the matter. The company is currently working with an adviser to run an auction process for the business, Bloomberg reported, adding that the business is likely to draw interest from private equity firms. 3M’s drug delivery business, which manufacturers inhalers and skin patches, accounted for about 1.4% of the company’s 2018 revenue of $32.77 billion. Sales from the business were flat on an organic local currency basis in the recently reported third quarter. The company, known for its Scotch tapes and Post-it notes, reported third-quarter revenue well below analysts’ estimates and cut its full-year profit forecast in October, signaling that American corporations are suffering from the protracted trade war with China. The vie...

Justice demands accountability for this cop: Wayne Isaacs, who shot and killed Delrawn Small, must be fired

Last March, our brother, Delrawn Small, would have celebrated his 40th birthday, a milestone he would have been excited to share with his two children, his girlfriend, the young people he mentored, his coworkers and the rest of our community. Instead, that day and every day, we wake up without him in our lives, feeling the void that was created when NYPD Officer Wayne Isaacs killed him more than three years ago. Delrawn was the world to us, his children and many in his life. He was our big brother and our protector. Early on, our mother passed away and we went into foster care. Delrawn stepped up and basically raised us, even though he was a child himself. He would listen to us for hours when we were sad and he was always there when we needed him. Delrawn would have done absolutely anything to stick up for his family, and that’s what he spent his last moment on earth doing. On July 4, 2016, coming from a friend’s barbecue with his girlfriend, his 4-month-old baby and his teen stepdaughter, a reckless driver put Delrawn’s family in danger multiple times. Not one to sit idly by while someone threatened the safety of his family, Delrawn approached the driver about his danger...

Miltown Eats Offers a Local, Sustainable Approach to Meal Kits

Jon Marrone (left) and Yulia Koltun (right) of meal kit delivery service MiltownEats, which launched in October 2019. Miltown Eats, which was launched this past October by Yulia Koltun and her friend, Jon Marrone, puts a local spin on meal kit delivery services. Miltown Eats sources ingredients by Milwaukee- and Wisconsin-based businesses and uses reusable, insulated tote bags for delivery, thus eliminating excess cardboard boxes and insulation. The concept began with Isthmus Eats, a separate entity founded by Marrone in 2018. Marrone, who loves to cook, had first tried Plated brand meal kit delivery service in 2015. Although he liked the ease and convenience of meal kits, he had noticed how much excessive packaging was left over. He came up with the concept for Isthmus Eats, which scaled down the service area and handled delivery directly, rather than using Fed Ex or United Parcel Services (UPS). He also created a reusable insulated tote bag with ice packs that are swapped out and reused to deliver meal kits to customers. Marrone and Koltun, who lives in Milwaukee, became friends when they worked together at a software company in Madison. They discussed Isthmus Eats and knew t...

Most anticipated roller coasters of 2020: Iron Gwazi, Orion, Aquaman

Will we heed the example set 100 years ago and also refer to the next 10 years as the “Roaring Twenties?” Who knows? But, one thing we do know: A wild bunch of new roller coasters will be roaring at parks throughout the U.S. in the first year of the yet-to-be-named decade. Let’s run down some of the wildest thrill machines that are on the way. Along with virtually every other coaster boy and girl that visited Busch Gardens Tampa Bay in Florida and spotted the forlorn remnants of the park’s defunct wooden coaster, Gwazi, I used to think, “Now there’s a prime candidate for RMC to do its thing.” Some background: RMC is short for Rocky Mountain Construction, a ride manufacturer that has developed a stellar reputation for taking past-their-prime, rough-riding wooden roller coasters and transforming them into gloriously smooth wooden-steel hybrid coasters. Five years after Gwazi closed, my fellow coaster nerds and I will get our wish. Set to open in the spring, the reborn Iron Gwazi will feature RMC’s patented IBox steel track. While it will retain much of the original coaster’s wooden structure, the redesigned layout will make it considerably taller and faster. In fact, with a 206-fo...

The State Of EV Batteries: LG Chem, SK Innovation, & Tesla–Panasonic Improvements

The state of electric vehicle (EV) batteries can get confusing. Although internal combustion engine (ICE) aficionados talk about engine displacement and horsepower, EV drivers often consider energy storage as the most important part of their decision making. Today, there are more lithium battery chemistries than ever and figuring out which one is used where and what appears after the dust settles can be difficult. Here’s a brief look at what’s in store tomorrow from the major EV battery OEMs. It’s hard to imagine that in the 1980s I was hauling an insanely heavy video recorder system. A heavy gel-pack battery swung over one shoulder, the other carried the video recorder, all the meantime balancing the actual video camera on a shoulder, and if you want quality sound, you had to manage a microphone — and boom! Finally, nickel-metal-hydride batteries (NiMH) came to our rescue and revolutionized portability. Then an oil giant (Texaco, which soon became Chevron) got its hands on the battery patent and squeezed out the competition until lithium came to the rescue. It started with the lithium-cobalt-oxide chemistry and moved onto oxides of nickel-manganese-cobalt (NMC), nickel-cobalt-a...

YPE html PUBLIC “-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN” “http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-transitional.dtd”> Francestown’s Select Board is opting to stick with the geothermal heat pump that controls the climate of the George Holmes Bixby Memorial Library after looking into alternatives following a pump failure last winter. The existing system was originally installed when the library underwent major renovations in 2009. It uses the thermal energy of the groundwater in a 1,000 foot-deep well to regulate the building’s temperatures, heating in the summer and cooling in the winter. The system has worked well, Selectman Henry Kunhardt said, but last winter a valve failed on the heat pump, forcing the library to heat the building with electric space heaters for a week. The repairman who fixed the valve suggested the town replace the aging pump, which operates with refrigerant technology that’s now discontinued, which makes repairs more expensive, Kunhardt said. Kunhardt acknowledged that last year’s repair, in conjunction with the fact that the system’s initial installation went over budget, might have made some residents worry th...

BAGHDAD – Over the past seven years, Iraqi consumers have gradually been attracted to the Chinese

BAGHDAD – Over the past seven years, Iraqi consumers have gradually been attracted to the Chinese smartphones for their usability, affordability and advanced technologies. In 2008, Chinese-made phones from little known manufacturers first entered the Iraqi market, but found a foothold due to their considerably low prices, new technologies such as touch-screen, hi-fidelity speakers, and attractive designs. However, poor performance besmirched the image of Chinese phones relative to devices of Nokia and Samsung. Now, a new class of Chinese smartphone manufacturers have quickly risen as tech giants in the world markets. Many of them found profitable niches in the Iraqi markets as well as in the world markets. The crowded thoroughfare of al-Rubaie in eastern Baghdad has become the hot spot of wholesalers of cellphones, accessories, and spare parts. The shops there are also supplying other smartphone markets in Baghdad’s other districts and across Iraq as well. The Chinese smartphones are widely spread in the thoroughfare. In 2013, Huawei was the first Chinese smartphone manufacturer that played an instrumental role in changing the stereotype of the Chinese smartphones a...

In 2017 we named the then all-new Ford Super Duty our Truck of the Year. I’ll

In 2017 we named the then all-new Ford Super Duty our Truck of the Year. I’ll never forget it, for a couple of reasons. The big one is that at our gala Of The Year event held at the Deco-meets-Gaudi Theatre inside the Ace Hotel in downtown Los Angeles, yours truly gave Ford the big award. “It’s the truckiest truck that ever trucked,” is how I concluded my speech. We had never seen anything like that Super Duty. Gargantuan, dripping with functionality, and oozing capability, the Super Duty wowed us like few other vehicles have during my decade-long experience with Of The Year events. “Sometimes, one vehicle so clearly satisfies or exceeds our criteria that we spend more time looking for faults than attributes,” features editor Scott Evans said. Amen. Since then, both Chevy/GMC and Ram have completely revamped their heavy-duty lineups. Ram even took the logical/ridiculous step of endowing its biggest hauler with 1,000 lb-ft of torque. GM kept the numbers down (“only” 910 lb-ft of twist), but thanks to a fantastic 10-speed transmission, properly equipped 3500 HDs can tow 35,100 pounds, beating the giant Ram by a meaningless (but funda...
