Lightning arresters can be adopted all over Bangladesh to save lives: ADB

Lightning arresters, a low-cost technology, can be adopted all over the country to save lives and stop undue human damages from lightning strikes, says the Asian Development Bank (ADB). “Its use in different parts of the country can save human lives. It’s a low-cost technology,” ADB Country Director Manmohan Parkash told UNB after handing over seven types of completed subprojects for use under the Emergency Assistance Project. The ADB Country Director handed over the facilities to LGRD Senior Secretary SM Ghulam Farooque on Friday, which were completed with grant assistance from the ADB. At least 600,000 “displaced people” sheltered in Cox’s Bazar Rohingya camps and the host community will be benefited under the Emergency Assistance Project, says the Bank. Parkash said lightning arresters are used in many countries to make sure when lightning strikes it goes down to earth so that people do not lose their lives. “So, we’ve included it as part of our project here (camps).” The ADB Country Director said they will be more than happy to take it up for the country if they are requested. According to reports carried by different na...

Can a Supply Chain Platform Birth the Next Kylie Jenner? | News & Analysis

Cala promises to help emerging designers and influencers set up their own supply chains by connecting them with a global network of manufacturers. The goal: bring their designs to market before fast fashion can rip them off. Cala promises to help emerging designers and influencers set up their own supply chains by connecting them with a global network of manufacturers. The goal: bring their designs to market before fast fashion can rip them off. NEW YORK, United States — Andrew Wyatt, founder of fashion supply chain platform Cala, is accepting applications to be the next Kylie Jenner. Cala pairs fashion brands with manufacturers around the world, providing an online platform for both parties to manage the garment supply chain, from producing samples to financing and fulfillment. Wyatt said he’s targeting his service at the “bleeding edge” of fashion, including emerging designers and influencers who have creative vision (or at least a Kardashian/Jenner’s merchandising ambitions) but not the connections to quickly get an apparel line into production. Early clients include the avant-garde brand Vaquera, rapper A$AP Ferg and the model Jazzelle Zanaughtti (@uglyworldwide on Instagra...

Advanced Manufacturing Media is a leading source for news and in-depth technical information about advanced manufacturing

Advanced Manufacturing Media is a leading source for news and in-depth technical information about advanced manufacturing in North America. Shortening cycle times, improving production accuracy and processing and handling smaller medical parts are just a few of the areas in which micromachining equipment makers and fabrication shops are honing their work for the medical sector. For instance, at Marubeni Citizen-Cincom Inc. (Allendale, NJ), a proprietary process called low-frequency vibration cutting that is unique to its Swiss-style machine tools is shortening production time and reducing the risk of part damage from residual chips. Meanwhile, Omax Corp. (Kent, WA) is increasing the precision of its waterjet manufacturing systems with proprietary cutting software and higher optical resolution. Custom fabrication shops are also refining their production processes, whether by building their own tooling or creating special systems for handling microparts. Having upgraded its MicroMAX machine about a year ago, Omax has better positioned the unit for the medical industry by providing improved positioning and cutting accuracy, said Stephen Bruner, vice president of marketing. “We impr...

XYZprinting Unveils da Vinci Color 5D 3D Printer with Included Laser Engraver and 2D Inkjet Printer

After announcing just a few short months ago that it would be changing its focus to the industrial side of the industry, 3D printer provider XYZprinting is introducing its latest desktop system at IFA 2019, which takes place in Berlin starting tomorrow, September 6th, through the 11th. The new da Vinci Color 5D is truly something to behold – it combines the latest full color 3D printing technology with a 2D inkjet paper printer into one machine, and adds on a laser engraver for good measure. XYZprinting, which also offers a combo unit featuring 3D printing and laser engraving, in addition to 3D scanning, in its da Vinci 1.0 Pro 3-in-1, claims that this is the world’s first 3D printer to combine color 3D printing with 2D inkjet printing and laser engraving, and I’m inclined to agree. “XYZprinting has a strong legacy in consumer paper printers, large format printers, and 3D printers alike. We’ve had more than 30 years in the printing industry as a market leader, which is largely thanks to our constant innovation and investment in creating new products. We’re thrilled to be adding to this now by bringing the da Vinci Color 5D to IFA 2019, and ultimately making 3D printing more acce...

How to preserve the life of your electric golf trolley

It could be the single-biggest golfing purchase we make. So we want it to last and we don’t want it to let us down on the golf course. Golfstream are one of the largest suppliers of replacement trolley parts, accessories and batteries in the country. So if there’s anything they don’t know about looking after an electric golf trolley it isn’t worth knowing. They also make quality trolleys themselves. Their latest addition is the Vision with an anti-glare screen and new easy-fold mechanism. We spoke to the brand’s managing director Derek Richford to get some tips on how we can keep our trolleys in decent working order and what to do if we find a fault. “There are a few to be honest! From the rotary switch at the top to bearings in the front wheels, tyres on the main wheels and axle blocks. “Their first reaction will be to blame the battery but in well over 50% of cases the trolley itself will be the issue.” “The old story of “a stitch in time saves nine” is true of golf trolleys, don’t leave it until you have a fault, look after it. “Many people will think nothing of getting their lawn mower serviced each year but all too few do the same with their golf trolley. “Just playing once...

Are you thinking about popping the big question to your partner? Marriage is one of life’s

Are you thinking about popping the big question to your partner? Marriage is one of life’s greatest commitments. You’ll need to care for your partner for the rest of your lives together and work through your problems as a team. The engagement ring is a symbol of your commitment to one another. It’s a time-honored tradition that’s the precursor to marriage, and your choice of engagement ring says plenty about how you view your relationship. Legend suggests that you spend as much as you can afford on the ring, which is usually around three-months’ salary. Selecting the perfect ring for your partner can be both an exciting and frustrating experience. Everyone wants to get the best deal and save themselves a few hundred dollars that they can put toward the wedding costs. As a result of your frugal behavior, you run the risk of dealing with unethical individuals that might rip you off, leaving you with a worthless piece of costume jewelry. There are so many considerations to take into account when buying your partner their ring. Do you want gold or silver, or how about platinum for the setting? Diamonds are a girl’s best friend, and you’ll need to ensure the ring design has a few car...

EVENT CENTER: The multipurpose event center at Northeastern State University (NSU) in Tulsa, Oklahoma.

EVENT CENTER: The multipurpose event center at Northeastern State University (NSU) in Tulsa, Oklahoma. VRV UNITS: Four variable refrigerant volume (VRV) systems at the NSU event center provide multi-zone air conditioning control and help save energy. BLENDING IN: Chilled beams and diffusers help provide low-key yet effective comfort at Amber Trails Community School. It’s impossible to take stock of the thousands of sustainability measures being incorporated into commercial buildings today — the market and technologies appear to have nothing but unlimited opportunities for growth ahead. But here is a look inside three recent projects that illustrate successful implementation of sustainable building solutions. The HVAC system at Northeastern State University’s (NSU’s) 78,200-square-foot multipurpose event center outside of Tulsa, Oklahoma, needed to satisfy the occasional high-occupancy requirements of an event and athletic center while providing daily back-of-house functionality. In addition to an auditorium/arena, the event center houses athletic offices, locker rooms, the NSU team store, concessions, and  a meeting space. When a traditional four-pipe system was deemed not econo...

Excalibur Co. adds to platform with acquisition of Ensign Equipment

MUSKEGON — Ensign Equipment Inc., a bulk-material handling and storage systems producer based in Holland, Mich., has been acquired by Muskegon-based Excalibur Co. LLC. Through the acquisition, Ensign will join a conglomerate of manufacturers and increase Excalibur’s platform to four facilities with more than 120,000 square feet of production space, full metal fabrication and finishing capabilities for aluminum, carbon and stainless steel. The acquisition of Ensign Equipment provides a “natural fit” for Excalibur, according to Managing Partner Mark Hoofman. “It combines the manufacturing capabilities on our fabrication side with the product line that is sold nationally on the sales side,” Hoofman told MiBiz. The former owner of Ensign, Dave Pulver, started the company nearly 30 years ago, finding a niche in offering customized material handling solutions along with standardized products. Now, he is ready to retire, Hoofman said. “(Pulver) was interested in the legacy and continuation of the business in the present facility with the present staff,” he said. “We fit that bill and so we’re able to consummate the sale.” Excalibur acquired Muskegon-based Heights Sheet Metal Inc. unde...

Here is another look at the far-southern-Virginia town of Danville: once a thriving tobacco-and-textile center, now

Here is another look at the far-southern-Virginia town of Danville: once a thriving tobacco-and-textile center, now trying to figure out what to do after all the mills have shut down. In keeping with the previously announced intention to keep drawing connections, parallel themes, and lessons from the communities we visit, here are three aspects of Danville’s story worth noticing elsewhere, as boiled down as I can make them. A summary: Previously, I did several reports on Danville’s attempt to put its extensive (and beautiful) inventory of old mill buildings to modern use: “The Reinvention of Danville’s Downtown, Part 1,” “Danville’s Story, Part 2,” and “How Danville Avoided Omaha’s Mistake.” Deb Fallows has written about the involvement of Danville’s faith community (and others) in dealing with rural health issues (“A Regional Approach to Rural Health Challenges”), and about the exceptional new Y that has opened alongside the Dan River downtown ( “A Community Within a Community”). 1) The role of foundations—and foundations of a particular sort: Institutions called “community foundations” are well known, active, long-established, and important across the country. Each year, they...

Nothing says summer quite like eating outside, whether you’re gathering your crew for a day at

Nothing says summer quite like eating outside, whether you’re gathering your crew for a day at the beach or throwing down a blanket for an outdoor movie screening or concert. In fact, it all seems so romantic in your head, right? What could go wrong? That’s when you realize how challenging pulling off a picnic in temperamental Mother Nature can be. But don’t fear! When it comes to dining outside headache-free, being prepared for just about anything—from ant invasions to not-enough-wine (the horror!)—is all in how you pack up your picnic basket. Thankfully, today’s options for portable picnics are better than ever, and we’ve rounded up the most handy options out there. If you’re more of a glamper than a camper, this backpack is the perfect way to make sure you’re dining in the great outdoors—in style. (Or maybe it’s just a really long walk from the parking lot to the outdoor concert venue.) This bag is packed with everything you need for a chic dinner for four: lightweight melamine plates, napkins, flatware, acrylic wine glasses, a cheese board (with knives), corkscrew, salt and pepper shakers, and a fleece blanket. And an extra cooler tote means you won’t starve.Buy Now This pho...
