These Are the 5 Items That Travelers Always Ask the TSA About

There are strict regulations surrounding what you can and cannot pack in your carry-on and checked luggage. Whether you’re planning for a long weekend in Austin or you’re jetting off on a two-week romp through Asia, you want to make sure you meet these rules so you don’t find yourself held up at airport security. To ease the stress of packing — and make your next airport experience a little less stressful — the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) shared the top five items they get asked about the most in a recent blog post. From razors to deodorant, here’s what they want you to know when you plan to bring these must-have travel items on vacation. According to the TSA, certain types of razors are permitted on board while others are not. Disposable razors, replacement blades, and electric razors can go in either your carry-on or checked baggage; if you have a safety or straight razor, you can pack it in your carry-on — but you must remove the blades first and pack them in one of your checked bags. Luckily, in our tech-centered age, you can pack a wide range of batteries and battery chargers in your carry-on bag. TSA allows dry cell alkaline (e.g. ...

New technologies for pasteurisation of low water activity foods

It has long been assumed that dry food and ingredients, by virtue of their low water activity (aw), carry relatively little risk with regards to foodborne pathogens. It has become clear, however, that whilst pathogens are unlikely to grow in dry products, if present they can often survive. Foods with a low aw tend to have a long shelf life because spoilage organisms grow slowly or are prevented from growing. Pathogens cannot grow in low aw products; however, if they are present in high numbers, or the infective dose is low, then the risk to the consumer still remains. If low aw ingredients are rehydrated during manufacture or preparation, growth can occur, thus increasing the risk to consumers. Recent outbreaks have raised concerns regarding the safety of low moisture foods. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention1, a recent USA outbreak in dry ingredients originated in organic sprouted chia powder. A total of 31 people infected with the outbreak strains of Salmonella Newport (20 people), Salmonella Hartford (seven people), or Salmonella Oranienburg (four people) were reported from 16 states. Another outbreak in June 2013 originated in tahini sesame paste and...

GROW: The rain will stop and you’ll have to start watering the landscape | Lifestyles

With the amount of rain we’ve received across the state in the last few weeks, watering the garden may be the last thing on gardeners’ minds. However, as we all know, the rain clouds will disappear, and the temperature will heat up and start drying things out soon enough. When this happens, it’ll be time to roll out the hose, turn on the sprinkler system or fill the watering can and get some much-needed moisture to your plants. It’s no secret plants need water in order to survive, but how much you water can make a big difference in plant health. It also can affect your pocketbook. To help gardeners keep their plants well hydrated, but also keep a little cash in their pockets, here are some tips on how to water properly. First, don’t water every day. Instead, water deeply, but infrequently. Allowing the water to soak into the ground and letting the soil dry out between watering forces plants to produce strong, deep roots. Add mulch to your flower bed, around trees and even in your containers. It helps retain moisture, prevents erosion, controls weeds and increases soil quality. Although it seems obvious, don’t water the hardscapes. Your driveway, sidewalk or the street won’t gro...

Stacey Porter didn’t know she was pregnant delivers baby on bathroom floor

A woman who didn’t know she was pregnant got the shock of her life when she delivered her baby alone on her bathroom floor. Stacey Porter, 20, had gone to bed with a stomach ache, and it wasn’t until she felt her baby’s head coming that she realised she was about to give birth. “I had to take a seat on the bathroom floor as my pain was that bad and after a few moans and groans her head started to come out.” Despite some heartburn when she was in Thailand over the Christmas and new year period, Stacey had no symptoms of pregnancy at all and had been getting regular periods. “I put [the heartburn] down to the amount of spicy food we had been consuming and the wine and different Thai beers,” she explains. And when her partner, David Johnston, 26, also claimed to be experiencing heartburn, she didn’t think anything of it. On the night she gave birth to her unexpected baby, Stacey had been picked up from work by David after complaining about feeling unwell. The couple went back to David’s family home – where they were house-sitting while his parents were on holiday. Though she was suffering from a stomach ache, Stacey didn’t want to go to hospital, so David decided...

In a traditional storage management environment, an IT administrator gets involved in many manual actions: setting

In a traditional storage management environment, an IT administrator gets involved in many manual actions: setting up storage LUNs, virtual arrays, RAID groups, iSCSI targets, iSCSI initiators, to name a few. For those without much experience, this can be a daunting and time-consuming task. IT generalists with minimal storage expertise will find much to like about HP’s SB600c Storage Blade. Accordingly, HP (Palo Alto, Calif.) designed the HP StorageWorks All-in-One (AiO) storage family, and, specific to this snapshot, the AiO SB600c storage blade. The storage blade works in conjunction with the HP BladeSystem c-Class enclosure. The SB600c provides shared storage for c-Class application servers as well as data protection software. “The AiO SB600c storage blade is designed to be managed by IT generalists with minimal storage expertise,” said Jim Hankins, product marketing manager for SB600c. He explained that the AiO Storage Manager (ASM) software interface in the system hides the complexity yet allows administrators to manage at the application level. For example, setting up iSCSI SAN storage for Microsoft Exchange in a traditional SAN environment could take ab...

Ring Smart Spotlight vs. Smart Floodlight: Which should you buy?

The Ring Smart Spotlight is just as the name suggests – it’s a spotlight. Specifically, a motion-activated spotlight designed to shine on garages, sheds, above doorways and other little nooks that need a little light. It’s quick and easy to install as there are no wires involved, which also means you can install in any area you like where motion can be detected. The Ring Smart Floodlight is a two-light floodlight perfect for shining a light on your driveway or backyard. It can shine 2000 lumens on whatever area you chose to install it in and it is motion-activated. There is a battery-powered option that can shine 600 lumens, but you’ll probably want the wired version for the brighter light. Both the Ring Smart Spotlight and the Smart Floodlight do the same thing – detect any motion and activate their lights. With an additional accessory, they can alert you at the same time. The difference is in the brightness of the lights and that’s where their purpose differs. The name of the products pretty much sum up what they will do. The Smart Floodlight has two lights that give you brighter illumination for larger areas such as your backyard, driveway ...

Autosalon Ženeva 2019: Polestar 2 se představuje, bude to Tesla killer?

Volvo rozjelo značku Polestar, aby zabodovalo v elektromobilitě. Teprve Polestar 2 je ale konečně slušný elektromobil. Slibuje dojezd až 500 km. Plug-in hybrid Polestar 1 nijak zvlášť nenadchnul. Polestar 2 se chce stát jedním z hlavních konkurentů pro Tesla Model 3, nebo – když nic jiného – se alespoň přiživit na značce Tesla. Cena elektromobilu Polestar 2 začne na 39 900 eur (německá cena včetně daní). První rok výroby ale bude z pásu padat speciální “launch edition”, která vyjde na 59 900 eur. Výroba by se měla rozjet letos v Číně, do prodeje auto půjde příští rok. S baterií o kapacitě 78 kWh, dvěma elektromotory a celkovým výkonem 300 kW/660 Nm se Polestar 2 alespoň parametrově své hlavní konkurenci v podobě Tesla Model 3 přibližuje. Volvo hovoří o dojezdu kolem 500 km WLTP, EPA pak spíš kolem 442 km. Tak či onak je to už slušné číslo s (mid-range) Modelem 3 plně srovnatelné. Baterie je uložena, jak jinak, než v podvozku a skládá se z 27 modulů. Zrychlení 0-100 km/h zvládne Polestar 2 pod 5 sekund. Zajímavostí je možnost přikoupit si Performance Pack, který zlepšuje jízdní dynamiku mimo jiné tlumiči Öhlins, brzdami Brembo a speciálními 20″ litý...
