Most modern scales do so much more than tell you your weight, and luckily, they don’t all cost a fortune. The Digital Body Fat Weight Scale by Balance (sold by Greater Goods) is our top pick because it is very affordable, reliable, and innovative. It’s a simple scale that does so much more than show your weight. To get started, you enter your height and age. Then, using bioelectrical impedance analysis (BIA), the device tells you your body fat, muscle mass, bone density, and hydration. The scale then stores this information along with the weight and BMI of up to eight people, which is great if you live in a multi-person household. The screen has extra-large numbers and is backlit for easy readability. The scale is rated to support up to 400 pounds, and the four weight sensors have a resolution of ±0.2 pounds, so you know you’re getting an accurate reading. Balance’s scale runs on four AAA batteries, which are included. Plus, a portion of the proceeds from each purchase goes to support Love146, which fights to stop child trafficking and to care for survivors. Experts and buyers alike recommend this scale. The Spruce called the Digital Body Fat Weight Scale...

Even though it’s my job to think critically about products, there are a few attributes that

Even though it’s my job to think critically about products, there are a few attributes that I don’t think to question. For example, I can’t complain that earbuds have to go in my ears. Such is the nature of earbuds. If I have tiny, weird-shaped ears, that’s my own problem. Likewise, I can’t complain that cargo bikes are big and heavy. For a bike frame to have the strength and stability to carry 400 pounds, it has to be correspondingly large. You can’t put a 20-pound dog backpack on a Chihuahua, right? That is common sense, but it makes getting an electric cargo bike less convenient for the people who would most stand to benefit from them. If you live in a crowded urban center, you might seriously consider going carless. But you’re SOL with a cargo bike if you don’t have enough ground-floor storage. If you’re maneuvering a cargo bike through crowded streets, you’d better practice your one-billion-point turns. And since many e-cargo bikes are too big to transport in many personal vehicles, you better live within a certain distance from a preferred retailer. These were all things that I considered to be inviolable truths about e-cargo bikes...

Charging Your Tesla Model 3 With Just A Wall Outlet

When purchasing an electric vehicle, the biggest worry for approximately 99% of the would-be owner base is range. Right? Or maybe it’s some charging concern. Like charging at home perhaps? We all live in different areas with different supercharging and/or public charging options available. To most, the readily available power source in your garage warrants the question: can you drive your Tesla Model 3 with charging from just your wall outlet? The short answer is yes. But there’s more to it. With different usages and commutes undertaken by owners each day, we’ll be concentrating on the median value that represents most Model 3 owners. Let’s say your daily commute is some 50 miles (80 kilometers). This represents a value of a distance from Long Beach to Downtown LA, Yonkers to Brooklyn, or for example, Starnberg to Munich. All of these represent routes that are easily trekked every day, they represent a healthy commute distance for upper-mid-level house incomes and a stable daily commute that doesn’t change in mileage or road gradient in any significant way. To most, this will be the maximum daily commute they undertake, while many will not travel ne...

The company experienced 20% growth in 2017 because of the efficiency of fiber laser cutting and

The company experienced 20% growth in 2017 because of the efficiency of fiber laser cutting and this rate of increase is continuing through 2018. D & M Design & Fabrication (Kirkby Malzeard, North Yorkshire, England) has seen dramatic growth since the joint owners, Dave Mawer and Mike Barratt, started running the business in 2010. At the time, neither thought that seven years later, they would buy one of the most advanced fiber laser cutting machines on the market—a Bystronic 10 kW ByStar Fiber with automated sheet handling. Related: The UK’s first 10kW fiber laser is now in productionThe machine, installed in May 2017 in one of the company’s factory units, is capable of processing 3 × 1.5 m sheet and is about 10X faster at processing 10-mm-thick material than the company’s previous Bystronic 3.3 kW CO2 fiber laser machine bought five years earlier. A sheet can be completed typically in less than 40 minutes, rather than six hours.”We were previously struggling to keep up with laser-profiling our material, despite running the CO2 machine around the clock, six days a week,” Barratt says. “With the speed of fiber technology, we are easily...

What This Spring’s Wet Conditions Mean for Nitrogen Loss

Wondering how this spring’s prolific rainfall is impacting nitrogen (N) loss? Fabian Fernandez and Dan Kaiser, University of Minnesota Extension specialists, share some insights on what farmers can expect. Over the last several years, we have noticed that wet springs are becoming the norm. In addition to keeping us out of the field at a critical time, these wet conditions also create anxiety about nitrogen loss. Wet conditions in the spring are normally bad news for N management. However, wet conditions accompanied by cooler temperatures reduce the potential for N loss. N loss pathways are driven by water and are dependent on N being in the nitrate form. Nitrate is formed in the soil from ammonium by bacteria through the nitrification process. Nitrification slows when soils are cold, keeping much of applied fertilizer N in the ammonium form. Since ammonium is a positively charged molecule, it is held by the soil and will not readily leach with excess water. On the other hand, nitrate has a negative charge and is repelled by soil particles, so it moves freely with water. In general terms, most of the agricultural land in Minnesota has been wetter and cooler than normal since last...

Should Motor Trend sell puppies? Should Ferrari make an SUV? Should the ES be offered as

Should Motor Trend sell puppies? Should Ferrari make an SUV? Should the ES be offered as a performance sedan? On that last point, Lexus thinks so, so the automaker has added an F Sport variant for the first time as part of its 2019 ES lineup. It’s taken seven generations to move the midsize sedan this deep into the sporty space. Lexus wants to broaden the customer base for its best-selling sedan and thinks adding an F Sport will attract customers 10 years younger than the average ES buyer. Lexus executives aren’t worried about a sporty ES encroaching into GS territory. As they see it, they’re providing more choice by taking the ES (Executive Sedan) known for luxury, quiet, and comfort and pumping up the driving dynamics. It’s part of a larger initiative to make the Lexus brand more dynamic, led by the LC coupe with its virtuous exhaust notes. This is chapter three of the evolution of Lexus, and designers were given freedom to create new silhouettes. So we headed to Nashville for our first time behind the wheel of the new ES, which is longer, lower, and wider than before. The styling is bolder, following the lead of the LC and LS. LED taillights wrap aroun...
