WL Plastics building pipe plant in New York logo-pn-color logo-pn-color

Fort Worth, Texas-based WL Plastics Corp. is starting construction on an polyethylene pipe extrusion plant in Fort Edward, N.Y., that is expected to open in mid-2020 and create 50 new jobs. David Fink, senior vice president of WL Plastics, said the location was chosen to meet the region’s needs for “the fastest-growing pipe product” for sewer and water lines and natural gas distribution pipes. High density PE’s long-term performance and easy installation “without costly trenching and related street, curb, and tree damage” are making it an attractive option to upgrade infrastructure, according to WL Plastics officials. In addition, HDPE pipe can withstand extreme temperatures and seismic activity, and it is low maintenance for municipal water systems, resists corrosion for wastewater applications, and is leak-free and flexible for conveying natural gas. WL Plastics produces pipe from a 1/2 inch to 54 inches in diameter. The new manufacturing plant will go up at a former General Electric Co. dewatering site in Fort Edward. Economic development agencies worked hard to seal the deal, state Assemblywoman Carrie Woerner, D-Round Lake, told the loca...

The green energy debate: are wind farms really worth it?

It was the huge island windfarm that promised to pump millions into the local economy but after more than a decade the project has divided the community as hundreds call for it to be scrapped. As reported in yesterday’s The Herald, more than 800 Shetlanders have banded together in a bid to stop the proposed windfarm, which could be the UK’s third biggest if approved, to be built across the archipelago, voicing concerns over the islands’ fragile bio-diversity and plans to desecrate ancient peatlands. If given the go-ahead, Viking Wind Farm could span 129 sq km of the islands leaving many islanders living close to or within the wingspan of the 103, 155 meter turbines. A partnership between Scottish and Southern Energy and the council-owned Viking Energy Shetland, signed in 2005, the windfarm is to largely be built on peatlands, raising fears over carbon release. The installation of the turbines and the infrastructure required to support them can fatally damage the peat through extraction, drainage and drying. Scottish peatlands are vital in climate change mitigation, acting as a sink for greenhouse gases, supporting biodiversity and regulating water quality and f...

Quantitative analysis of intrinsic and extrinsic factors in the aggregation mechanism of Alzheimer-associated Aβ-peptide

Thank you for visiting nature.com. You are using a browser version with limited support for CSS. To obtain the best experience, we recommend you use a more up to date browser (or turn off compatibility mode in Internet Explorer). In the meantime, to ensure continued support, we are displaying the site without styles and JavaScript. Disease related mutations and environmental factors are key determinants of the aggregation mechanism of the amyloid-β peptide implicated in Alzheimer’s disease. Here we present an approach to investigate these factors through acquisition of highly reproducible data and global kinetic analysis to determine the mechanistic influence of intrinsic and extrinsic factors on the Aβ aggregation network. This allows us to translate the shift in macroscopic aggregation behaviour into effects on the individual underlying microscopic steps. We apply this work-flow to the disease-associated Aβ42-A2V variant and to a variation in pH as examples of an intrinsic and an extrinsic perturbation. In both cases, our data reveal a shift towards a mechanism in which a larger fraction of the reactive flux goes via a pathway that generates potentially toxic oligomeric ...

441 cubic inches. 2,625 hp. 1,767 lb-ft. 40 pounds of boost. That’s the current state of

441 cubic inches. 2,625 hp. 1,767 lb-ft. 40 pounds of boost. That’s the current state of engine-builder Ken Duttweiler’s latest Bonneville land-speed-record (LSR) engine that, when fully developed and debugged, he hopes will recapture Bonneville’s fastest piston-engined crown, currently held by Danny Thompson in the refurbished, 50-year-old “Challenger 2” Streamliner originally first driven back in 1968 by Danny’s dad, the legendary Mickey Thompson. Danny’s new high-water mark of 448.757 mph over the 5-mile-long salt flats course set just last summer surpasses the previous 2012 Bonneville SCTA high-water mark achieved by a single Duttweiler-built, 347ci small-block Chevy in George Poteet’s Speed Demon (HOT ROD, April 2012). Running in AA/FS (AA/Fuel Streamliner), Challenger 2 needed two 2,500hp, nitro-fueled, unblown, old-school, 500ci, dry-block Hemi engines to get the overall two-way record. Duttweiler plans to take it back with a single 441ci engine. Nope, it’s not a big-block Chevy nor even another highly evolved traditional Chevrolet small-block. Instead, Duttweiler is moving to the modern GM “LS” small-block architecture, albeit in “Pro” racing trim using Dart’s brand-new ...

Bordeaux Vintners Convicted of Fraud, but Fellow Winemakers Cry Foul

Hervé and Régis Grandeau were found guilty of selling surplus wine, but protest that regulations were unclear and no one was harmed Bordeaux is roiling under another fraud conviction, this time concerning one of the trade’s most well-known figures. Hervé Grandeau, president of the Federation des Grands Vins de Bordeaux (FGVB) and member of the regional council for France’s appellation authority, the INAO, and his brother Régis Grandeau have been convicted of mislabeling wine. Bordeaux’s criminal tribunal sentenced Hervé and Régis to six- and four-month suspended prison sentences, respectively, and €30,000 fines (with €20,000 suspended). Their two family businesses were fined €200,000 each (with €150,000 suspended). The conviction has left many in the wine trade stunned, especially because of the crime in question. “Not one grape from another estate in Bordeaux or from outside Bordeaux was sold by Hervé and his brother,” said Christophe Château, a spokesperson for the CIVB, the leading trade group. “There was no impact on the quality of the wine for the consumer.” But in the eyes of the French administration and justice system, Hervé and...

2019 Guide to CNC Router Bits: All You Need to Know

Without the right bits, even the perfect CNC rig won’t be going very far. Explore this comprehensive guide to CNC router bits! While CNC machines have opened all kinds of creative possibilities, the magic lies in the bit. It determines whether you will end up with a perfect or okay design. Plus, it also makes the difference between cutting down on waste or increasing material costs significantly. The bit is used to remove material in a specific way. Initially, routers used to be handheld tools that were guided by templates or ball-bearing pilots, and they were moved manually around the workpiece. But today, routers are controlled using computers that precisely determine the toolpath, and these routers require bits to make intricate cuts. The range of materials and designs cut by router bits has grown significantly in diversity, and so have the types of CNC router bits. Today, the market is flooded with so many kinds of CNC router bits that picking the right bit for a project isn’t always intuitive. Before going any further, let’s familiarize ourselves with some CNC routing jargon that will be used throughout this article: Even though bits fall into these two main categorie...
