Judging by the number of times I’m asked about it, the The One For All SV

Judging by the number of times I’m asked about it, the The One For All SV 1760 solves one of the nation’s most pressing AV issues, allowining you to ‘beam’ audio and video wirelessly from an HDMI source in your main living room to a distant projector or a TV screen in another room. It’s a simple concept and there are some drawbacks, but for many households it’s a timely solution to an annoying problem. Despite having the Wireless HDMI Sender installed for a couple of weeks at the time of writing, I still find myself flip-flopping over whether I admire the business-like design or whether it’s actually just a bit dull. They look like tiny wireless routers with perforated holes spcing up an otherwise grey-and-black design.Thanks to their small size it’s pretty easy to hide them from view if you decide they’re not the ideal ornaments for your AV kit shelf or mantelpiece. You can lie them both flat if you wish, though they cut a more elegant profile if you slot them onto the little hexagonal feet One For All provides in the box. The basic idea behind the One For All Wireless HDMI Sender is simple: to send full HD, even 3D video – with accompanying audio – wirelessly from an AV source...

Why handwritten letters are becoming more precious in an increasingly digital world

For most of my three years working at a luxury writing shop in Perth, the most expensive pen was the Mont Blanc Marlene Dietrich, a special-edition fountain pen in commemoration of the actress. It had an 18-carat solid gold nib (of course), inlaid mother-of-pearl on the top of the cap and a diamond adorning the clip, which was shaped like the ties of which its namesake was so fond. That, in turn, was not the most expensive pen the store had ever had — that honour went, I was told, to a Caran d’Ache fountain pen that was literally encrusted with hundreds of diamonds. It was worth $1.7 million and travelled pen stores worldwide. Wherever it went, it apparently came with its own security guard. It makes my most expensive sale look like utter peanuts, but thankfully it doesn’t cost thousands to partake in the joy of writing. From working at the pen shop I learned that no matter how bad one’s handwriting is, or how rarely they put pen to paper, almost everyone harbours some kind of love for stationery. Industry experts say that no matter how flash the newest iPad might be, pen and paper are here to stay. Fountain pens rose to prominence in the first half of the 20t...

TribLIVE’s Daily and Weekly email newsletters deliver the news you want and information you need, right to your inbox. Whether it’s a preference for online browsing, time constraints or anticipating a package’s arrival, many people embrace a “personally curated,” often subscription-based shopping service. “It’s like getting a little present in the mail every month,” Linda Brasile says of her regular Stitch Fix deliveries. Customers submit preference profiles, let stylists choose their “fix” — five pieces of apparel, accessories or footwear — and pay a $20 styling fee per shipment. They can keep what they like, with the $20 fee credited toward a purchase, and return the rest at no cost, according to its website. Brasile and her sister, Barb Twaddle, both enjoy shopping. Each has tried a few of the numerous online subscription services, as have several family members. Brasile says she can choose the frequency of shipments. She likes the styling cards that suggest ways of wearing the items in each package. She gets a 25% discount if she elects to keep all five items in a shipment. “I like things I can dress up or down,” says Brasile, finance administrator at the Arnold Palme...

1. The Truth and Reconciliation Commission Act 2000 (“the Act”) enjoined the Truth and Reconciliation Commission

1. The Truth and Reconciliation Commission Act 2000 (“the Act”) enjoined the Truth and Reconciliation Commission (“the TRC” or “the Commission”) to make findings in relation to the causes, nature and extent of violations and abuses during the armed conflict in Sierra Leone.1  In particular, the Commission was mandated to deliberate on the question of whether such violations and abuses were the result of deliberate planning, policy or authorisation by any government, group or individual.  The Act required investigation into the roles of internal and external factions in the conflict.2 2. This chapter summarises the main findings of the Commission.3  The detailed findings of the Commission are to be found in the different chapters of the report.  The main findings are preceded by primary findings.  The primary findings are the central or most important findings made by the Commission. 3.

MorningStar Launches New “Incogmeato” Vegan Meat Line 

In early 2020, MorningStar Farms—a subsidiary of the Kellogg Company—will debut its “Incogmeato” vegan meat line at grocery stores and through foodservice partners. The new line will feature the company’s first ready-to-cook, “next-gen” plant-based burger patties to be sold in the refrigerated meat case, and the company’s new non-GMO soy-based Chik’n tenders and nuggets will be sold in the freezer aisle. “As more consumers are choosing a ‘flexitarian’ lifestyle and actively reducing meat, we’re thrilled to be extending the MorningStar Farms portfolio with a delicious and satisfying meat-like experience,” said General Manager of the MorningStar Plant-Based Proteins Department Sara Young. “We know that about three-fourths of Americans are open to plant-based eating, yet only one in four actually purchase a plant-based alternative. So, the intent is fully there, but it hasn’t necessarily been followed with action. We know the number one barrier to trying plant-based protein is taste. These consumers are still seeking the amazing taste, texture, and sizzling qualities of meat but want a better alternative for themselves and the planet.” Earlier this year, MorningStar announced it wo...

New details emerge on Cleveland Cyclewerks’ upcoming light electric motorcycle

Ohio-based Cleveland Cyclewerks (CCW) is planning to become the next US-based electric motorcycle manufacturer. The big reveal of their upcoming electric motorcycle won’t take place for another two months, but the company is keeping the hype alive by dropping a slew of new details. Earlier this year, Electrek became the first to break the news about Cleveland Cyclewerks’ new electric motorcycle program. While Cleveland Cyclewerks had previously only built gas-powered motorcycles, this will be the first electric motorcycle designed and built by the company. We dug around a few weeks ago and did some sleuthing to find as many details as we could about the project. As it turns out, CCW’s new details show we were pretty darn close with our original findings. And as an added treat, the new specs for CCW’s upcoming e-moto are certainly intriguing. First of all, the company will apparently be releasing not just one but two new electric motorcycles, or at least two new versions of the Falcon Rising e-moto. The two models will be known as the Falcon 01 and the Falcon BLK. According to the company, the bike will feature a 12kW (16hp) IPM electric motor and a 300A speed controller. The sp...

Light Distance and Ranging (lidar) systems have been utilised in atmospheric monitoring system to give researchers

Light Distance and Ranging (lidar) systems have been utilised in atmospheric monitoring system to give researchers powerful insight in atmospheric properties. These include studying clouds, wind, temperature and gases. Typically a lidar system would consist of an output and input beam. The output beam would transmit a laser into the atmosphere and the backscattered light would be collected by the receiver. The data would be linked to computers with algorithms to process the ample information and to provide meaning information such as wind velocity, cloud altitude, cloud classification, concentration of gases and more. Laser Components can manufacture a range of precision lenses, mirrors, protective windows and beamsplitters optimised for custom and common lidar wavelengths (1550nm, 1064nm and 532nm). These coatings can be manufactured with high laser induced damage thresholds (LiDT) for high powered lasers and are hard coated resulting in highly durable coated optics suitable for the harshest outside environment. Light Distance and Ranging (lidar) systems have been utilised in atmospheric monitoring system to… Read More 1390 Laser Cutter 6-D Laser LLC was formed in 2018 as...

New York – Bath accessories lend a dash of fashion to the bathroom counter and fulfill the

New York – Bath accessories lend a dash of fashion to the bathroom counter and fulfill the utilitarian function of holding toothbrushes, soap bars, lotions and cosmetics. Excell is looking to change that equation. Its new Diatomite collection of hard bath accessories is made of diatomaceous earth, the naturally occurring fossilized remains of single-celled aquatic algae. Diatomite bath mats and accessories absorb water, dry quickly and resist mildew. “It’s a natural material. You don’t get soap scum in the dish; it doesn’t sit on top. And with the accessories, we can infuse them with scents,” said Akeem Glaze, senior designer for business development. Diatomite is a material commonly used in swimming pool filters, noted Rosie Iglesias, VP of sales for Excell Home and Glenoit. “The fact that you can speak to it being a real material is important, especially to the Millennial customer. It’s a really fun story to tell.” Excell is also adding benefits to the lowly tub mat. One new construction is studded with mini magnets, which have been used for healing properties since ancient times. Other tub mats designed to offer grooming benefits include an attached pumice stone, scrub brush ...
