If you are fond of tinkering with stuff around the house, fixing things or creating objects

If you are fond of tinkering with stuff around the house, fixing things or creating objects of art, then you agree that one of the most convenient tools to have around is the wire cutter. If you want a quality wire cutter or need a good replacement, better read the essentials first so you will know which product to buy. Read our guide for some FAQs and reviews. Answer: The wire cutter is used to perform precision cutting; it can cut without damaging the wire. In jewelry-making, it’s used to cut certain lengths and lop off excess wire. Answer: The different types of wire cutters include the following:• Bevel – Ideal for standard, offhand cutting applications. Leaves a spike or nip on the wire.• Flush – Good for preventing spikes and nips left from cutting. Requires less pressure in order to cut. Good for those who need to deal with tasks that obligate them to cut lots of wires daily. Comes in two types; standard flush and ultra/super flush.• Shear – Requires even les pressure compared to flush cutters. Leaves a moderate step in the wire, not a nip or a spike. Must be used with precision in order to avoid cutting the wrong angle or material. Answer: First, you need to consider you...

Posted to Maritime Reporter (by Brent Perry, CEO, SPBES with forward by Chris Kruger, CTO, SPBES) on February 4, 2020 ———————Sterling PBES Energy Solutions———————— © Sterling PBES Energy Solutions – used with permissionSPBES CEO Brent Perry and CTO Chris Kruger developed the safest propulsion battery in the marine industry.  ForwardA Li-ion battery has several potential hazards that must be considered in order to keep people and equipment safe. It is important to consider these hazards for each stage of the battery life, not just the day it is installed. From manufacturing through to delivery, installation, commissioning, maintenance and eventually the recycling of the battery, safety must be first and foremost. At the core of the system is the lithium-ion cell; a chemical power plant that cannot be simply switched off in order to make it safe. A battery cell is by its nature always live; therefore, it is important to ensure the safety of personnel from this potential hazard. The voltage on a single cell is low and therefore not hazardous, however the potential current is very high si...

$90 Million Upgrade: Is the Navy’s Troubled Zumwalt Class Worth Fixing?

Key Point: The Zumwalt class of destroyers was supposed to be a fleet of high-tech wonders. But instead, they’ve been overbudget ships that don’t even work. In January 2019, the Navy will commission its second hi-tech Zumwalt-class stealth destroyer, the USS Michael Monsoor. The third and last, USS Lyndon B. Johnson was launched this December 2018 and will be commissioned in 2022. This piece was originally featured in December 2018 and is being republished due to reader interest.  Traditionally, warships are tailored to perform specific missions. But the cutting-edge Zumwalt has been a ship in search of a mission, especially since procurement of hyper-expensive ammunition for its primary weapon system was canceled. Years and billions of dollars later, the Navy may finally have found one. In the post-Cold War 1990s, the U.S Navy lacked peer competitors on the high seas, so it conceived its next-generation surface combatants for engaging coastal targets. As the Navy phased out its last battleship, it decided its next destroyer should mount long-range guns that could to provide more cost-efficient naval gunfire support than launching million-dollar Tomahawk cruise missi...

The crowds visiting Oregon’s beaches have grown by leaps and bounds during the past decade, seemingly leaving no grain of sand untouched. But lifelong Oregonian and Salem resident John Shewey says there are places to find sandy solitude, and to prove it, he’s written a book. “Oregon Beaches: A Traveler’s Companion,” offers details and locations of about 140 different beaches along the coast. The book doesn’t focus o...

Plush? Tick. Juicy? Tick. Smooth? Double tick. Over-rated? Hang on a minute… Although it’s sneered at by amateur connoisseurs who know enough about wine to tell when a vintage is crap, but not enough to pick the right bottle in the first place, Merlot is one of Australia’s best reds—if you know where to look.  The statistics bear this out: Wine Intelligence research reveals that, behind closed doors, Merlot is one of Australian’s favourite red varietals, despite the prevalence of poor-quality Merlot clones that have cropped up over the years.  “Why has this happened?”, you might be tempted to ask? “Surely all wines face competition from poor quality imitations?” Well, as veteran wine-maker Jim Irvine told The Australian, Merlot faces a few extra challenges. “So much Merlot in Australia is planted on the wrong sites — people expect that it will just grow like Shiraz or Grenache, but it doesn’t — it hates wet feet, for a start, it needs well-drained soil, so if you plant it in clay you’ll have problems, the fruit won’t set properly.” “The day will come,” he continued, “When we get rid of the Merlots that are lean, green and mean, the poorly made Merlots — they’re a damnation.

Here is why the stock market may take a precipitous slide and why a wrenching economic

Here is why the stock market may take a precipitous slide and why a wrenching economic downturn is around the corner. Americans should keep this in mind: Economic prosperity of the past 10 years was not God-given. It was all the result of quantitative easing (QE), where an unprecedented amount of money was printed and poured into the financial system. Cheap imports from abroad, notably from China, played a key role in ensuring that this policy could be sustained without upward pressure on prices. Therefore, should the Sino-U.S. trade conflict morph into a full-blown trade war, it will bring the long expansion to an end. The outcome is Armageddon. From a macro perspective, an enormous creation of money has two effects. First, it blows up asset prices; in particular, stock prices. Second, it makes domestic demand less constrained by the availability of money. To meet the unbridled demand, the economy will produce as much as it can, while the unmet demand will be filled up by imports. So, with the Federal Reserves (Fed) in QE, it is no surprise that unemployment keeps decreasing. It is also perfectly normal for the U.S. to run a continued trade deficit with China. If you have three...

Automobiles like the Toyota Prius and Tesla Model S are some of the best cars with

Automobiles like the Toyota Prius and Tesla Model S are some of the best cars with large touch screens. Take a look at these 10! Automobiles and their features were such simple and necessary things in the early 1900s. From one passenger, it became two and then someone invented the backseat. Then in 1959, with the ingenuity of Nils Bohlin, Volvo installed the first seat belts in cars. Then some decades later smart technology has infected all other mobile devices, including our cars. The touch screen panel is no longer a luxury we are happy to have, it’s become a necessity that has to be bigger and easier to navigate. This is a list of ten cars with the largest and best screens on the market today. The 2019 Toyota Prius Prime is a hybrid car on its second generation and was released three years ago. It comes in three models, Plus, Premium, and Advanced. While the Plus model has only the 7-inch touch screen, the Premium and Advanced get the bigger one at 11.6 inches. It’s a high-resolution monitor with a split-screen display called the Entune Premium Audio with Integrated Navigation and Entune App Suite. It has a USB port and an auxiliary port, with iPod connectivity a...

首尔半导体胜诉 亿光电子“2835 LED封装”被判专利侵权

全球性LED企业首尔半导体称,德国地方法院已判决由贸泽电子(Mouser Electronics)流通的台湾LED生产企业亿光电子(Everlight Electronics)的‘2835 LED封装’产品构成对首尔半导体的专利侵权,并发布了对该产品销售的永久禁令,同时下令其召回自2017年2月以后销售的相关产品。 诉讼涉及的专利为通过提高LED光反射率,保障其耐久性和高效率的多波长绝缘反射器(Multi-Wavelength Insulation Reflector)技术【图A】。该专利技术是用于室内照明、LCD背光等的0.5W~3W级中功率(Mid-Power)LED封装,且广泛应用于照明、智能手机、TV背光、汽车等领域。最具代表性的产品有‘2835、3030、5630LED封装’。 通过创新发明,LED由第一代进一步发展升级到了第二代,目前大部分LED产品均为提升可靠性和效率的第二代产品。因此,第二代专利技术也被推举为不可或缺的LED生产核心技术。 在专利侵权诉讼中,这是对EverLight产品下达的第二次销售禁令。第一起判决首尔半导体胜诉是2018年12月,法院发布亿光电子产品禁售令以及召回2012年7月13日以后销售的产品。涉及该诉讼的专利是大功率UV或用于白色LED等的大功率(High-Power)LED技术【图B】。继大功率LED以后,此次获得胜诉的专利技术与通用的中功率(Mid-Power)产品有关,意义十分重大。 360 Degree Rotation Selfie Stick 由此,首尔半导体在欧洲、日本、韩国等五个国家针对亿光电子开展的专利侵权诉讼以及专利无效诉讼共计10项中,全部获得了...
