Blow Molding: Ultra-Light PET Base Design For CSD Bottles : Plastics Technology

Sidel has expanded its family of PET bottle-base solutions with the StarLite UltraLight for carbonated soft drinks (CSD) and sparkling water. Allowing for a 25% reduction in bottle weight compared with a standard PET half-liter CSD bottle at around 13.5 g, the new base is designed specifically highly carbonated beverages with a short distribution stream sold in countries with a temperate climate. Such products are typically sold through hard discount supply chains that apply regular stock rotation. The new base addresses these chains’ need for more affordable products. It offers even greater material savings on a 1.5 L bottle. The base reportedly offers excellent bottle stability and allows for output rates of 2500 bph per mold (bphm). Sidel’s StarLite UltraLight solution also comes with an innovative CSD bottle-neck design, a 26/22 neck finish weighing as little as 2.3 g. It has a thread diam. Of 26 mm, inner diam. Of 21.7 mm, and height of 13 mm. It can be combined with the new Novasoda 26/22 cap for CSD from Novembal, a member of the Sidel Group. And together with the lighter base and neck comes a patented bottle body design, with a rigid waist that prevents splashing when o...

The German company is one of the largest accessories manufacturers out there, and it’s nice to see it releasing a line for the popular adventure bike.

Pierre Yovanovitch revamps Hélène Darroze at The Connaught dezeen-logo dezeen-logo

Salmon-coloured surfaces, curved furnishings and a cooking-themed wall mural appear inside high-end restaurant Hélène Darroze at The Connaught, which has been recently refreshed by Pierre Yovanovitch. To mark its 10-year anniversary, French designer Pierre Yovanovitch was tasked with overhauling the dining space to more acutely reflect the “refined yet comforting” style of chef Hélène Darroze’s cooking. “There was freedom in this project in that our main focus was to create an ambience that supported the strength of Hélène’s Michelin-starred menu,” Yovanovitch told Dezeen. “It was different to designing a private residence in that we weren’t designing to fit someone’s everyday lifestyle, but instead were quite focused on the dining experience of The Connaught’s customers.” Keen to strike a balance between “tradition and newfound contemporary soul”, Yovanovitch refrained from making any significant alterations to the restaurant’s architectural shell. Instead, the existing dark-wood wall panelling has simply been stripped back to a lighter hue. A butterfly-print panel by British artist Damien Hirs...

Colorado Fracking Study Shows Toxic Chemicals Up to 2,000 Feet Away From Drilling Sites

Data from a Colorado study finds that people living near oil and gas fracking sites may have heightened risk of nose bleeds, dizziness, headaches and other short-term health effects, according to The Denver Post. Right now, state regulators have set a 500-foot minimum setback distance for residences. Evidence from the study finds that residents living between 500-2,000 feet of fracking sites are exposed to benzene and other chemicals. Chemicals, like benzene, toluene and ethyltoluenes were found at up to 10 times the recommended levels at a distance of 500 feet from fracking operations. Those levels were still unsafe at distances of 2,000 feet from some oil and gas fracking facilities. Fracking, the common name for hydraulic fracking, is a method of unconventional natural gas development, according to the National Institute of Environmental Health Services (NIH). Sand, water and chemicals are forced into wells drilled horizontally into shale. When the shale cracks, natural gas or oil is released. It is possible for the chemicals used during the fracking process to enter and contaminate drinking water sources. This water pollution can also occur during if flowback, the release o...

‘They’ve got no margin for error’: Biden cash crunch raises alarms

After the latest look at his campaign finances, some Democrats question whether he can go the distance. Former Vice President Joe Biden‘s sluggish fundraising and high expenses — including nearly $1 million for provate jets — have left his campaign with low levels of cash on hand that worry supporters. | Mario Tama/Getty Images Stalled in the polls and on the heels of another uninspiring debate performance, Joe Biden’s campaign was forced to respond to another troubling issue Wednesday: his lackluster fundraising. Just months ago, Biden’s initial cash haul surprised naysayers who doubted he could compete with the money-minting machines that are Elizabeth Warren and Bernie Sanders. But now the former vice president is bleeding money. Biden spent almost $2 million more than his presidential campaign raised in the third quarter, a predicament caused by sluggish fundraising coupled with the expenses of maintaining a big payroll and a nationwide operation — one that included luxury expenses such as swank hotel stays at the Westin and The W, and nearly $1 million for private jets. His cash on hand sum of $8.9 million is so low that it’s almost four times lower than the $33.7 million ...

“Building a Fiber-Connected World” is the tagline of Broadband Communities magazine, and each year the FTTH

“Building a Fiber-Connected World” is the tagline of Broadband Communities magazine, and each year the FTTH Top 100 list recognizes organizations that lead the way in this arena. Fiber-to-the-home deployment in the United States is beginning to outpace legacy copper broadband, a trend that is impacting service providers and their vendor suppliers. Fiber-based broadband services, according to an RVA study commissioned by the Fiber Broadband Association, surpassed DSL in 2018 as the second-most common type of home internet connection in North America, following cable. According to the research firm, fiber now passes 39 million homes in the United States (1.6 million of them have multiple fiber passings) and connects 18.6 million homes, up 17 percent over 2017. A large portion – 71 percent – of fiber-to-the-home builds are by large incumbents. The remaining 29 percent are from Tier 2 and 3 providers, including a mix of independent telcos, municipalities, competitive providers and electric cooperatives. Vendors are also seeing a transition in the equipment they sell. For example, Broadband Trends reported that global DSL port shipments declined 22 percent year-over-year to reach 35....

Sales of big sport utility vehicles all but collapsed 10 years ago during the last recession

Sales of big sport utility vehicles all but collapsed 10 years ago during the last recession but they have made a steady comeback because of their ability to carry multiple passengers in relative comfort. While General Motors with vehicles such as the Cadillac Escalade and Chevrolet Suburban or the Ford Motor Co. with the Lincoln Navigator and Ford Expedition clearly dominate the full-size SUV segment, a handful of other big SUVs, such as the Infiniti QX80, also have staked a claim to the coveted territory. The 2019 Infiniti is a big, roomy offering with plenty of elbow room for the driver and passengers, and nicely furnished with comfort-oriented features that customers seem to demand or expect in this type of vehicle, which are prized both for the imposing size, which set them apart from other vehicle and for their ability to carry anything and everything. Infiniti, like its rivals for sales in this particular segment, also has made sure to load the QX80 with technology, including an eight-inch screen that houses Infiniti’s InTouch Navigation system in the center stack, Bluetooth for hands-free telephone calls, voice-recognition technology and Bose speakers to enhance the vehi...

Man wearing a MAGA cap slashes another man with a SWORD outside a San Francisco roller-skating rink

A man wearing a MAGA cap attacked another man with a sword outside a San Francisco roller-skating rink Friday night, police say.  The victim is said to have grabbed the assailant’s red ‘Make America Great Again’ hat during the bloody confrontation before being stabbed in his hand.  In shocking images posted online the red hat  – a symbol of Trump’s 2016 presidential campaign – can be seen laying on the sidewalk surrounded by blood.   Eyewitness David Miles said: ‘I came outside. The guy was cut, he was bleeding like you wouldn’t believe. He was just gushing blood, so we got the first aid kit from inside and tried to stop the bleeding.’ Miles posted a shocking image of the aftermath of the incident on Facebook. It showed the red hat near a pool of blood.  Other images show the cap left on the floor after the victim, who has not been named, is said to have chased his attacker before realizing the extent of his injuries.  Shocking images posted online show the red hat – a symbol of Trump’s 2016 presidential campaign – on the sidewalk surrounded by blood after a man was slashed with a sword  Miles added: ‘...
