Kids II announced Friday that it is recalling nearly 700,000 inclined baby sleepers sold under a variety of different brand names and models after reports of five infants dying.

These days you can find amazing bed sheets made of all kinds of materials — polyester, linen, rayon, and blends — but traditional 100% cotton is still the most common fabric we see.

Hands-on: nearly instant photofinishing direct from your smartphone

Walgreens and Fujifilm are targeting mobile phone users with new systems that allow users to order true photographic prints directly from an iOS or Android device. Both companies launched APIs this week that allow app developers to integrate print ordering directly from their photo-related apps. Fuji is configured to mail finished products to customers from a centralized lab, while Walgreens allows pickup from the nearest of its 7,900+ Walgreens stores. Camera-equipped mobile phones have largely supplanted compact cameras for a wide variety of users, resulting in 10-20 percent annual declines in compact camera sales for the last couple of years. While smartphones allow users to easily share photos via social networking sites like Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, and Flickr, getting photo-quality prints is usually the last thing on many users’ minds. That’s a situation that Walgreens and Fujifilm hope to change. The APIs allow mobile developers to tap in to each company’s photofinishing services, making it almost as easy as clicking a button to get prints from your latest “iPhoneography” masterpiece. “One of the things we see is that there are qui...

All 2,493 items targeted by China’s tariffs in US trade war — Quartz

China’s latest tariff retaliation, announced today, will hit some $60 billion in US exports, including hundreds of agricultural, mining, and manufactured products, threatening jobs and profits at companies around the United States.  Before the trade war starts in earnest, China bought about 17% of US agricultural exports and was a major market for other goods, from Maine lobster to Boeing aircraft. It has been the largest market for Apple iPhones since 2016. Since the escalation of tariffs, though, China has stopped buying soybeans and lobsters, and Apple warned it would miss its expected Christmas holiday sales figures because of trade tensions. In addition to the 25% tariffs below, Beijing also added 20% tariffs on 1,078 US products, 10% tariffs on 974 US products, and 5% tariffs on 595 US products (all links in Chinese). The list was translated from China’s ministry of finance press release using Google translate, and may be inexact in spots. Quartz also rearranged some items on the list to group them into categories, and they may not be in the order of their “harmonized tariff schedule” codes.  Polycarbonate Sheet, Pvc Ceiling, Pvc Wall Panel, Pvc Ceiling Panel – Bofa...

Watch: Serving beer tanks can eliminate the need for kegs, walk-in coolers, extra tanks, extra hassle

The leap from homebrewer to professional brewer takes a lot of time, money and equipment. It also takes a lot of physical space. Just ask Ole Pederson, co-owner of Mad Mole Brewing in Wilmington, N.C. The money and space constraints of operating both a brewery and a taproom led Mad Mole to incorporate Paul Mueller Co. serving beer tanks, eliminating the need for kegs and a walk-in cooler while catching the eye of thirsty customers walking into the place. They do look very cool — especially with proper signage indicating what beer is inside — see the video above. At Mad Mole’s 2,000-sq-ft brewery, barkeeps serve 12 perfectly carbonated beers on tap, at all times, from beautiful, steely, horizontally-mounted serving tanks. Watch the equally beautiful video above. No extra brite tanks. No carb worries. No wasted space in a right-sized brew and serve operation.

At Buffalo Manufacturing Works, Mike Garman, senior engineer-automation, tends to the nonprofit … [+] organization’s array of robotic arms. If you look up at the night sky and happen upon some little lights on the move it might be a shooting star. Likely it is not a UFO. The better bet, of course, is that the lights belong to an airplane. And the odds are very high they come from Astronics Luminescent Systems Inc (LSI). These ingeniously designed, extra-durable LED exterior lights are made at Astronics LSI’s flagship factory in East Aurora, New York, a suburb of Buffalo. The facility, utterly nondescript from the outside, though a sprawling, bustling workshop inside, employs 300 mostly blue-collar workers. With its motto of “innovation at 30,000 feet,” Astronics LSI is well-known in the industry for aircraft lighting. It’s also a major supplier of cockpit instrument panels. The company’s hundreds of products are subjected to rigorous quality control measures as dictated by the Federal Aviation Administration. ...

EL CAJON — There is a scene in the classic 1941 film, “Citizen Kane” where an exuberant millionaire playboy Kane (Orson Welles) exclaims, “I think it would be fun to run a newspaper.” The context here being that publishing a paper is nothing more than a simple diversion. EL CAJON — There is a scene in the classic 1941 film, “Citizen Kane” where an exuberant millionaire playboy Kane (Orson Welles) exclaims, “I think it would be fun to run a newspaper.” The context here being that publishing a paper is nothing more than a simple diversion. In local terms, Robert Zakar, who was raised in a family of merchants and has successfully operated gas stations, grocery outlets and convenience stores, decided to take a left turn and delve into — well, for lack of a better term — the body transport business. “When people pass away, we will take the deceased to a hospital or funeral home,” Zakar said. “My brothers would handle the actual transportation, while I would do the marketing and accounting. “At first, I did not want anything to do with removing bodies, it seemed pretty creepy to me; but when I thought about it, I realized that it was about the loved ones left behind,” he said. “I foun...

2020 Land Rover Defender: Pictures, Specs, Release Date + More | Automobile Magazine

To call the Land Rover Defender an icon is to understate the matter a bit. For most of the second half of the 20th century, the Defender was to most of the globe what an off-road vehicle looked like if it wasn’t a Jeep. But in 2016, Land Rover quit making the Defender, and the automotive world felt the loss. Fortunately, reincarnation is real when it comes to cars, and now the Defender is back once again—and seemingly better than ever. Right out of the gate, the 2020 Land Rover Defender demands attention with its blend of sleekness and boxiness. The look is at once fresh and yet clearly tied to the slab-sided, much harder-bitten edges of the Defenders of yore. Not everyone will like it, but then that’s a hallmark of good—or at least compelling—design. From where we sit, it’s just about the best Land Rover could have done, especially as the company went back to the drawing board after the poorly received DC110 concepts from earlier this decade. Reinventing a legend is never easy; just ask the folks who did the most recent Wrangler, or the new Corvette. But does the new Defender have the mettle to match its visual might? On paper, it sure looks like it does. Whil...

Keep On Pushing: Student sit-in opposes militarization of Johns Hopkins

Earlier this week, Johns Hopkins University undergraduate and graduate students voicing ongoing opposition to the university’s all-but-fully-approved campus police force and demanding an end to JHU’s contracts with Immigrations and Customs Enforcement (ICE), walked into administrative building Garland Hall and kicked off a sit-in. Wearing shirts with “NO ICE” and “NO PRIVATE POLICE” on them, the 30 or so hung up a large banner which read “NO PRIVATE POLICE, NO ICE CONTRACTS, JUSTICE FOR TYRONE WEST,” chanted “Ronny D loves the BPD”—a reference to JHU president Ronald Daniels—and then Peter Weck, a member of the Hopkins Coalition Against ICE announced that this was indeed, a sit-in. “We’re not going to be sitting in a circle, we’ll be sitting in clumps,” Mira Wattal, of Students Against Private Police (SAPP) announced and the group quickly fanned out and sat on the floor, up against the walls, and at the few tables and couches in Garland Hall, filling the lobby of the building where President Daniels has his office with energized students ready to wait the university out. “This time around we’re actually going to be sitting in here so that they will have no choice but to continue...

Since prehistory man has been aware of the importance of particle size in producing resources and

Since prehistory man has been aware of the importance of particle size in producing resources and wares with desired properties. Archeological evidence indicates that paints used for cave wall paintings are mixtures of finely pulverized pigmenting materials, predominantly carbon, ochre and hematite. Man came to realize that adding pulverized materials to clay not only improved its workability, but improved the drying process, reduced shrinkage and changed the characteristics of the resulting vessels. There also is evidence of using particles of certain sizes to control porosity. For many centuries, finely divided, calcined lime powder or gypsum mixed with sand was used in plasters and binders. Then, about 2000 years ago, the Romans improved upon the formula by adding volcanic (pozzolanic) ash, which produced a superior hydraulic cement that was used in building many structures that still stand. Today, finely divided particulate materials and objects that incorporate or are produced from these fine particles are everywhere about us. Frequently encountered powders include cement, lime, fertilizer, cosmetic powders, table salt and sugar, detergents, bath and dental powders, coffee ...
