As a Hackaday writer, you can never predict where the comments of your posts will go.

As a Hackaday writer, you can never predict where the comments of your posts will go. Some posts seem to be ignored, while others have a good steady stream of useful feedback. But sometimes the comment threads just explode, heading off into seemingly uncharted territory only tangentially related to the original post. Such was the case with [Steven Dufresne]’s recent post about decimal time, where the comments quickly became a heated debate about the relative merits of metric and imperial units. As I read the thread, I recalled any of the numerous and similarly tangential comments on various reddit threads bashing the imperial system, and decided that enough was enough. I find the hate for the imperial system largely unfounded, and so I want to rise to its defense. What is a system of units anyway? At its heart, is just a way to measure the world. I could very easily measure the length and width of a room using my feet, toe to heel. Most of us have probably done just that at some point, and despite the inconvenient and potentially painful problem of dealing with fractionalization of your lower appendage, it’s a totally valid if somewhat imprecise method. You could easily pace out...

U.S. finalizes duties on certain welded-pipe imports

WASHINGTON (Reuters) – The U.S. International Trade Commission said on Tuesday American producers were being harmed by the import of certain large-diameter welded steel pipe from Canada, Greece, South Korea and Turkey, locking in duties on some of those products for five years. The ITC said in a statement line pipe from the four countries was harming U.S. makers and backed duties for such pipe from Korea, but not Turkey. It said structural pipe from Canada, Korea and Turkey was being dumped. Stainless steel pipe from Canada was not being dumped, and such pipe from Korea also was not dumped or unfairly subsidized, it said. The Commerce Department said in February the imports were dumped in the U.S. market, and in some cases unfairly subsidized, and announced duties to protect domestic producers. The ITC’s final determination that U.S. producers are being harmed by certain imported pipes from some of the countries ensures that preliminary duties on those products remain in place. In 2017, U.S. imports of large-diameter welded pipe from Canada were estimated at $179.9 million, from South Korea at $150.9 million, from Turkey at $57.3 million, and from Greece at $10.7 million. ...

Week 2 Big Ten Football Power Poll: Sound The Tornado Sirens! – Off Tackle Empire clock menu more-arrow no yes Horizontal – White Follow Off Tackle Empire on Twitter Follow Off Tackle Empire on Facebook Search Horizontal – White Horizontal

Compared to a triumphant Week 1 for the Big Ten Conference, Week 2 was certainly a letdown with two of last week’s top 6 losing as favorites and of course Purdue dropping a game to Eastern Michigan. This power poll is where I alienate everyone with a topic that you, dear reader, couldn’t possibly imagine anyone caring about. Are you ready? It’s time for some outdoor warning sirens! Those of you living in the Heartland Of America surely have seen and heard these devices throughout your lives, whether they’ve startled you during their regular tests or sent you into survival mode during a tornado warning. Civil defense sirens were first used in the US by fire departments for municipal warnings, but they proliferated massively during World War II as the US prepared for air raids that never came. During the early stages of the Cold War, the Civil Defense program installed these sirens virtually everywhere that was settled. As the threat of nuclear annihilation subsided and communication systems became more sophisticated, communities adapted these systems for various purposes. On the West Coast and Hawaii, it’s a tsunami warning. Most places, however, recognize their sirens as the tor...

Refillable’ technology could provide enough energy to drive an electric car up to 3,000 miles

Technology using a membrane-free, flow battery is showing success in powering golf carts and other applications. WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. – A new type of electric vehicle power using “refillable” technology has taken another giant leap in advancing alternative energy with testing that shows it could provide enough energy to run a car for about 3,000 miles. The technology employs a novel type of “flow” battery that is being successfully tested in golf carts. It was first showcased in 2017. Click here for a video about the technology. “The jump that this technology has made in the past two years is a testament to its value in changing the way we power our vehicles,” said John Cushman, Purdue University distinguished professor of earth, atmospheric and planetary sciences and a professor of mathematics. “It’s a game-changer for the next generation of electric cars because it does not require a very costly rebuild of the electric grid throughout the US.  Instead, one could convert gas stations to pump fresh electrolyte and discard depleted electrolyte and convert oil-changing facilities to anode replacing stations. It is easier and safer to use and is more environmentally friendly than e...
