He loves South Carolina. He said he will win South Carolina. He spent the days before the primary reminding South Carolina why it should love him back. HEMINGWAY, S.C. — Joe Biden was moving — two buttons unbuttoned, sunglasses indoors, a God-love-ya in every pot — and the finger-guns would be holstered for no one. “How ya doing!” he hollered, pointing and stepping through a rickety barbecue spot where a couple dozen fans awaited him on Thursday. They grabbed at his hands, his shoulders, the back of his head, grazing wisps of the hair some had seen when it wasn’t quite so white. They hung on his precision pandering: an insistence that his father wanted to be “reborn in Myrtle Beach, I tell ya” and a reminder that Fritz Hollings, the state’s deceased former senator, was a good friend. They told him when they had last hugged him. “You remember your girlfriend?” a woman called out at one point, waving an old photograph of herself with Mr. Biden. He slid his shades down his nose a little, Ferris Bueller-style, pursing his lips mischievously. He said he remembered. “It’s a little like going home,” Mr. Biden had said of his South Carolina travels the day before. He could use the hosp...

The Harley-Davidson Fat Boy 30th Anniversary model celebrates three-decades of the original model that was designed

The Harley-Davidson Fat Boy 30th Anniversary model celebrates three-decades of the original model that was designed by legendary Harley-Davidson stylists Willie G. Davidson and Louie Netz. The 2020 Fat Boy 30th Anniversary has a blacked-out Milwaukee-Eight 114 engine with bronze highlights. Harley is only going to make 2500 of them, and each will be numbered and include a serialized plate on the fuel tank console. Milwaukee, WI (February 3, 2020) – Harley-Davidson celebrates an icon with the introduction of the Fat Boy 30th Anniversary motorcycle. Cloaked in dark finishes with bronze highlights and powered by a blacked-out Milwaukee-Eight 114 engine, production of the 30th Anniversary Fat Boy will be limited to 2,500 examples, each serialized with a number plate affixed to the fuel tank console. The Fat Boy was a perfectly outrageous name for a motorcycle that at its 1990 introduction was brilliantly bodacious. “The Fat Boy took the look, proportions and silhouette of a 1949 Hydra-Glide motorcycle and completely modernized it for a new generation of riders,” explains Brad Richards, Harley-Davidson Vice President of Styling and Design. “Those riders appreciated our post-war desi...

10 Best Organic and Vegan Condoms and Lubes 2020 | The Strategist

Every product is independently selected by (obsessive) editors. Things you buy through our links may earn New York a commission. Looking for eco-friendly condoms is complicated. Kim Marks, the owner of As You Like It, a nontoxic and environmentally conscious sex shop in Eugene, Oregon, describes the concept as a Catch-22: “Condoms are onetime use, but we need them for safe sex,” she says. Matthew Nolan, the co-author of the Oh Joy Sex Toy book series who runs a website of the same name, agrees. “Condoms are super tricky,” he says. “Almost all condoms are made from latex or a latex derivative — stuff that takes forever to degrade. The best thing you can aim for is a cruelty-free, considerate condom manufacturer.” And there are a handful of companies that go the extra mile to ensure that their rubber and manufacturing processes are sustainable. “As an FDA-approved item, condoms are highly regulated,” says Coyote Amrich, the director of purchasing and product development at Good Vibrations. “As such, there are only so many ways a condom can appeal to people looking for a more responsible brand.” There are two main companies, Glyde and Sustain, that are transparent about their manuf...

Decades after the end of the space race, an American rocket took off from Cape Canaveral.

Decades after the end of the space race, an American rocket took off from Cape Canaveral. This was a routine launch to send a communications satellite into orbit, but the situation was an historic first. The rocket in question was driven by a powerful Russian engine unlike any ever built in the States. Although this particular engine was new, the design dated back to the space age. By the early 1960s, the Russians were leaps and bounds ahead of the United States in terms of space exploration. They had already launched Sputnik and sent Yuri Gagarin to orbit the Earth. All in all, the Russians seemed poised to send a man to the moon. Russian technology had the Americans worried enough to spy on them with satellites, and the images that came back revealed something spectacular. Out in the Kazakh desert, the Russians were building an enormous causeway and two launch pads. As it turns out, the US had every reason to be worried. The Russian space program was largely controlled by one man, Sergey Pavlovich Korolyov. It was his design workflow that made the Russians so successful. Instead of spending thousands of hours at the drawing board, they would simply build rockets, fly them, and...

Xu hướng thời trang golf bền vững và thân thiện với môi trường

Từ lâu, nền kinh tế tuần hoàn trong ngành thời trang đã hướng đến việc tái chế các nguyên liệu đầu vào. Thời trang golf cũng không nằm ngoài xu thế ấy. Năm 2016, nếu như các ông lớn như Adidas, Nike, Speedo đã thành công trong việc ứng dụng nguyên liệu tái chế từ rác thải nhựa để sản xuất những dụng cụ thể thao trứ danh của mình thì nay, Ralph Lauren tiếp tục làm điều đó. Ralph Lauren đang mở rộng việc sử dụng vải Polyester tái chế (loại vải được làm từ sợi Polyester tái chế, chủ yếu từ chai nước đã qua sử dụng, rửa sạch rồi cắt thành những miếng nhỏ, đưa vào quá trình nung nóng và kéo thành sợi) để tạo nên ba loại vải áo golf cho năm 2020: lightweight airflow, featherweight airflow và airtech pique. Theo ước tính, khi mỗi chiếc áo golf hoàn thành, bảy chai nhựa sẽ được tái chế. Ngoài ra, công ty còn tập trung vào việc duy trì chất lượng và hiệu suất bằng cách đưa từng mặt hàng qua các quy trình kiểm tra nghiêm ngặt để đảm bảo các vật liệu bền vững được giữ vững trong suốt chu trình. Mục tiêu đến năm 2025, Ralph Lauren sẽ cung cấp 100% Polyester tái chế cho tất cả các sản phẩm Poly. Nike đã thiết kế lại BST Victory Collection để bao gồm cả vải và sợi Polyester tái chế. Mỗi chiế...

The students from Plastic Free MV will get a chance to pitch their plastic bottle ban

The students from Plastic Free MV will get a chance to pitch their plastic bottle ban to Oak Bluffs voters at annual town meeting on April 14, but voters will also face a separate proposal from town business owners that seeks to put off the ban. The two proposed bylaws revolve around reducing plastic on the Island, but take separate routes to get there. The goal of Plastic Free MV is to eliminate the use of disposable plastic water and soda bottles 34 ounces (roughly one liter) and under; gallons and large containers would still be allowed. If passed in Oak Bluffs, the bylaw would take effect May 1, 2021. To make up for the lack of plastic bottles sold and distributed on the Island, the students are advocating for convenient water refill stations in businesses and public areas, and the use of alternative brands in glass or boxed containers. The group of young activist students were successful in getting the article passed by voters in the up-Island towns of West Tisbury, Chilmark, and Aquinnah. The law will go into effect for those towns in May. Last week members of the Oak Bluffs Association met to discuss the potential impact of the proposed bottle bylaw, and to talk about an...

For all you stoners who didn’t pay attention in organic chemistry, here’s a second chance to

For all you stoners who didn’t pay attention in organic chemistry, here’s a second chance to learn how to do something that you would have already known if you’d stayed awake. I’m not recommending you do this. And it’s not like the Manhattan Project; this information is online in various forms. Rather, it’s simple organic chemistry – called a cyclization - where a molecule of CBD oil, aka cannabidiol, under certain sets of conditions, can be coaxed to forming an entirely different chemical compound – THC, one of the psychotropic chemicals in marijuana.  Admit it, the only reason that you guys are all reading this is that you think I’m going tell you how to convert CBD oil, which is not illegal or psychotropic (1,2) and can pretty much be obtained in every store in Manhattan, into THC, which is both illegal and psychotropic. ”Hmm,” those of you who haven’t already nuked every brain cell are thinking,” why can’t I just get a whole bunch of CBD and make my own THC?” Well, you can, and that’s where organic synthesis – the art of converting one organic (3) molecule into anot...

The aftermath of a crazy party was the set at Dilara Findikoglu. Red-wine soaked napkins, rotting

The aftermath of a crazy party was the set at Dilara Findikoglu. Red-wine soaked napkins, rotting fruits and half broken tables seemed on brand with Findikoglu’s dark and subversive creations. But this time, her woman has grown up. “I want to grow up so I want my characters to grow up as well. I am almost 30!” she said. Gothic dress and embellished straitjackets yielded to expensive looking tight tweed jackets with chain belts dangling her logo; fairy dresses armed with silver bras and body chains, and geometric hats. Findikoglu said the new collection is a study on herself, her dark side and bright side, and address “how hard it is to be a female creative in the industry.” WWD Critique: A more womanly and refined direction is promising and timely for Findikoglu. Maybe she can try bridal next time. Pageant Crowns, Bridal Crowns, Rhinestone Mask, Rhinestone Scepter – Crownsworld,https://www.crownsworldchina.com/
