Sunburn — The morning read of what’s hot in Florida politics — 6.13.19

Gov. Ron DeSantis on Wednesday re-issued a proclamation supporting Pulse remembrances with a correction — adding references to the LGBTQ and Hispanic communities. They were notably absent from the original proclamation that came out Tuesday evening, which often garnered scathing criticism from those communities and the state’s Democrats. The new proclamation adds references to those communities who made up the vast majority of the victims of the June 12, 2016 massacre at Orlando’s popular gay nightclub on “Latin night.” And the document adds the word “hate” alongside the word “terrorism” as things Florida will not tolerate. Further, DeSantis added a stop to his Wednesday schedule to include a visit to the makeshift Pulse memorial, on the grounds of the now-shuttered club, to pay his respects at 5 p.m. As to DeSantis’ failure to fall on his own sword or name the guilty party, it was shrugged off by Tallahassee lobbyist and longtime Republican operative Mac Stipanovich. “There is nothing to be gained by feeding a specific staff member to the lions other than making the lions happy,” Stipanovich tweeted. “And doing so gratuitously would have a pernicious impact on staff morale and...

DRILLING: Boart Longyear introduces new DriftMaster top hammer rods and bits

SALT LAKE CITY, Utah – Boart Longyear announces the launch of its newest top hammer tooling, the DriftMaster series of rods and bits. They are designed with a unique thread profile for added endurance and strength in the most demanding tunneling, bolting and drifting applications. The DriftMaster series of rods and bits with asymmetric thread geometry minimizes stress concentrations. “Global field testing of DriftMaster products has exceeded expectations leading to an extended trial duration, extensive sample size and very positive responses.”  said Jeff Hogan, product manager for top hammer tooling at Boart Longyear. “Test results from the field strongly aligned with our design goals of significantly improved durability compared to standard threads. Our customers will benefit from increased productivity and lower overall costs.” For maximum productivity, DriftMaster offers increased strength through stress reduction in two key ways: 1) The tapered profile provides an increased material cross-section at the base of the threads and 2) the asymmetric thread geometry minimizes stress concentrations. The lower stress combined with deep case hardening allows for a significant increas...

历经20年谈判欧盟与南共市达成历史性自贸协定 – 国际

欧盟与南美地区最大的经济一体化组织南方共同市场(MERCOSUR)达成自由贸易协定。路透社报道说,欧盟和南共市早在20年前就开始了有关自由贸易协定的谈判。在特朗普当选美国总统之后,欧盟与南共市加速了自贸协定的谈判。 目前该协定还有待缔约各国议会批准方能生效。对南共市而言,欧盟是第一个与其达成自贸协定的主要伙伴。路透社指出,这为欧盟企业提供了潜在的先机。目前,欧盟是南共市最大的贸易和投资伙伴,也是与其商品贸易往来第二大的经济体。 该协定将涵盖政府采购、贸易便利化、卫生检验检疫以及知识产权等多领域内容。协定生效后,南共市国家出口欧盟的部分农产品关税将被取消,出口商有望增加肉类、糖和乙醇等产品对欧盟的出口。同时,协定生效后,欧盟对南共市大部分出口产品的关税也将被取消,有助于促进欧盟工业产品出口。欧盟委员会主席容克表示,在国际贸易紧张局势下,该协定表明欧盟支持“以规则为基础的国际贸易体系”。 南共市是南美地区最å...

Fracking With CO2 Instead of Water Is Greener, Say Researchers

Fracking is a process used to remove gas and oil from shale rock. It involves pumping a highly pressurized liquid, typically water mixed with sand and chemicals, into the rock formation to open up cracks through which the gas or oil can then be extracted. The controversial practice is considered one of the most damaging forms of energy production. But now, Chinese researchers say they’ve found a counter-intuitive way to make it more eco-friendly: replace the water with atmosphere-polluting carbon dioxide. In a study published Thursday in the journal Joule, the researchers describe how they tested liquid CO2 as a fracking fluid on shale in the lab and found it created cracks with much higher volumes than those made by water. Mixers Their lab results were confirmed by field tests using five oil wells in north-east China, which showed that using CO2 over water resulted in 4 to 20 times more oil extraction. Typically, 30 to 50 percent of the fracking fluid remains in the shale after the resource extraction, meaning that replacing water with CO2 could effectively store the atmosphere-destroying gas. “We chose CO2 fracturing from a range of options because the process includes multip...

Lensbaby has become a bit of a household name in recent years and for those of

Lensbaby has become a bit of a household name in recent years and for those of us searching for a more unique look to our images, Lensbaby has been there to provide a whole host of creative solutions. Their latest product is no different, but this time around they aren’t producing a new lens, but instead a ‘creative filter system’ called the Omni. I was fortunate enough to get my hands on one of these Omni’s prior to launch and I also had chance to test it out on a couple of portrait shoots recently so I thought I would share my thoughts on it here. If you’re unfamiliar with Lensbaby then they are predominantly known for their creative lens solutions. These lenses, now more colloquially and affectionately referred to as ‘art’ lenses, offer a different perspective for photographers looking for something outside of the norm. Their lenses range from the more aggressive lens distortions like the ‘Edge’ that creates a tilt-shift look, to the more subtle ‘Velvet’ lens that simply softens the edge of the frame, creating a very reminiscent look of the bygone era of photography. I’ve personally used Lensbaby lenses for many years and long before they ever reached out to me to get my feed...

Thermoplastic composites: Scenic view : CompositesWorld

First use of thermoplastic composite guide rails to replace aluminum brings many benefits to fixed-glass, roller-blind sunroof modules. A team in France has developed a novel fixed-glass, rollerblind sunroof module that uses thermoplastic composite guide rails for the first time to replace conventional aluminum rails. Already in production for two years on the Renault Scenic and Grand Scenic multi-purpose vehicles, this change in rail material saved weight, cost and tooling, eliminated hardware and multiple processing steps, simplified assembly line installation, reduced operating noise, and also freed up 13 mm of headroom between vehicle occupants and the glass panel.   When retracted, the roller-blind sunshades take up little space under headliners and cannot be seen by vehicle occupants yet they still provide the same thermal isolation from the sun and sound damping from the wind and rain as rigid sunshades. When paired with large transparent, fixed-glass sunroof systems like those offered on the Renault Scenic and Grand Scenic, they provide a large daylight opening that spans nearly the length and width of each vehicle’s roofline.  Cavity side of family tool where all eight...

Presence sensing is a broad topic that entails both object detection and machine guarding. Choosing the

Presence sensing is a broad topic that entails both object detection and machine guarding. Choosing the right device always entails some forethought, especially when installing it in difficult-to-reach or hazardous areas. Our panel of experts tells you what you need to know. Tim Kelly, vice president of U.S. sales, Tri-Tronics: The reason there are different technologies is that each application is unique and may require the best solution. Obviously, there are applications that are extremely easy, repeatable and unchallenging. These types of applications require very little technical expertise and can be solved with almost any kind of low-cost sensing technology. But the more difficult applications require some level of expertise from the supplier, as well as the best technology to solve the problem. Ultrasonic sensors are good for ignoring color, texture and material differences, but they may have issues with angle of incidence or speed or limited space between objects. Photoelectric sensors are great for either tolerating differences in colors, as infrared LEDs are often utilized, or detecting the difference in colors, like white LEDs do. Polarized photoelectric sensors can be...
