Man devastated after police dump grandmother’s ashes on ground during search

A man in the Kansas City area says a police officer dumped his beloved grandmother’s ashes — which he wore in a vial around his neck — onto the ground during a routine search last month. Now, Deonta Words and his mother, Devona Douglas, say they want answers and an apology for the “disrespectful” way the officer handled their loved one’s remains, according to the Kansas City Star. But the Kansas City Police Department (KCPD) said in a statement on Wednesday that “the incident was an accident.” According to Words’ account, he was walking to a friend’s house on May 30 when an unmarked car pulled up alongside him. He claims to have started running as soon as he saw a gun flashed. When officers caught up with Words, they allegedly arrested him and began searching him. In the process, one officer opened a silver bullet attached to a chain Words wearing as a necklace. The bullet, Words said, contained the cremated remains of his grandmother, who passed away in January. Words claims there was too much going on during the search and he didn’t have a chance to give the officer a heads up before he noticed the officer had poured the ashes on the ground. “I seen [my] money flying, so I loo...

Dame Products Sues New York City MTA Over Rejected Sex Toy Advertising

New York’s Metropolitan Transit Authority has never allowed advertising of sex toys—but it’s run plenty of sexually suggestive ads, notably for products addressing male-oriented issues like erectile dysfunction. Sex toy startup Dame, which manufactures products geared toward women, developed an ad campaign featuring small vibrators and phrases including, “Toys, for sex.” The campaign was rejected by the MTA in December, and now Dame is suing the transit authority for damages. The rejection “reveals the MTA’s sexism, its decision to privilege male interests in its advertising choices, and its fundamental misunderstanding of Dame’s products,” the company said in its complaint. “Just because we are talking about sex in public, doesn’t mean we are saying you should have sex in public,” Dame CEO Alexandra Fine says, “and just because we are talking about sex doesn’t mean it has to be arousing.” The five-year-old, Brooklyn-based startup says it invested $150,000 in the defunct ad campaign and “suffered substantial economic losses” from the MTA’s decision. Its lawsuit in the Southern District of New York cites the MTA’s approval of ads for the Museum of Sex, birth control pills, and t...

Microsoft launched Office 2019 late last year, but the new ad campaign makes it pretty clear

Microsoft launched Office 2019 late last year, but the new ad campaign makes it pretty clear the company would really prefer that you didn’t buy it. Instead, Microsoft’s latest twins challenge ads, which pits Office 2019 and Office 365 against each other by having three sets of identical twins complete the same tasks in both versions to determine which is better. The end result, Microsoft concludes you’d be much better off with a monthly or yearly subscription to Office 365. The Office suite has been one of Microsoft’s biggest cash-cows for the company since its first release in 1987. Every three years or so, the company has release upgrades to all the apps mainly targeted at business users. However, in 2011 Microsoft replaced Business Productivity Online Services (BPOS) with Office 365 and the whole game changed. It is not clear that there will be a new, static Office 2019 release in three years’ time. Neither is it clear that is really necessary. While Microsoft has never been shy about its cloud ambitions for Office 365 and that it wants users — both business and consumer — to move to Office 365, recently it has launched a new ad campaign that, for all intents and purposes, u...

Most modern scales do so much more than tell you your weight, and luckily, they don’t

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 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...
