Coral Glades Boys and Girls Varsity Soccer Teams Defeat Boyd Anderson

It was a memorable day for Coral Glades High School as both the boys and girls varsity soccer teams won games against Boyd Anderson High School by a combined score of 15-0. The boys won their fifth game of the season scoring seven goals in a 7-0 win. The girls were able to top that with an 8-0 win to move to 6-5 on the season. After Coral Glades Boys Soccer was unable to get on the scoresheet following their draw against Coconut Creek High School on January 13, the Jaguars broke out on Wednesday behind a two-goal performance from Robert Banhegyesi. Giovannie Garcia added to his team-high seven goals, and Johann Morris and Johann Osorio each registered their first goal of the season. David Herrera and Hamza Fares scored the other two goals for the Jaguars while Lewis Mussingham recorded the shutout in net. “We were organized and disciplined defensively,” said Head Coach Robens Decius. “We need to play more aggressive offensively and score more goals.” To begin the season, the Jaguars scored six times in a win over Northeast High School. They also defeated Deerfield Beach, Coral Springs Charter, Pompano Beach and tied to Cypress Bay, JP Taravella, and Monarch, and Coconut Creek Hi...

As a Hackaday writer, you can never predict where the comments of your posts will go.

As a Hackaday writer, you can never predict where the comments of your posts will go. Some posts seem to be ignored, while others have a good steady stream of useful feedback. But sometimes the comment threads just explode, heading off into seemingly uncharted territory only tangentially related to the original post. Such was the case with [Steven Dufresne]’s recent post about decimal time, where the comments quickly became a heated debate about the relative merits of metric and imperial units. As I read the thread, I recalled any of the numerous and similarly tangential comments on various reddit threads bashing the imperial system, and decided that enough was enough. I find the hate for the imperial system largely unfounded, and so I want to rise to its defense. What is a system of units anyway? At its heart, is just a way to measure the world. I could very easily measure the length and width of a room using my feet, toe to heel. Most of us have probably done just that at some point, and despite the inconvenient and potentially painful problem of dealing with fractionalization of your lower appendage, it’s a totally valid if somewhat imprecise method. You could easily pace out...

The infinite triangular loop of arrows that we know as the recycling symbol adorns millions of plastic

The infinite triangular loop of arrows that we know as the recycling symbol adorns millions of plastic pop and water bottles we carefully sort in the blue bin. It comforts us with the idea that each one will be recycled over and over again forever.  Many bottles aren’t recycled at all, and those that do get recycled usually aren’t turned into other bottles or recycled again after that. Instead, they end up in the world’s landfills — or worse, in the ocean. In Canada, plastic bottles and caps were the top plastic trash items collected during shoreline cleanups in 2019, just behind cigarette butts. They’re also typically among the top three items in shoreline cleanups worldwide. Here’s a closer look at what actually happens to those bottles after use and what needs to happen to boost recycling in the future. The plastic used to make water and pop bottles is polyethylene terephthalate or PET, which is also known as No. 1 plastic. The number is its “resin code,” which often appears in a triangle that resembles the recycling symbol. It’s technically one of the most recyclable plastics in use today. While many plastics degrade in qualit...

Roger Scruton changed the course of my life. He addressed my school’s philosophy society when I

Roger Scruton changed the course of my life. He addressed my school’s philosophy society when I was 16, speaking so compellingly about Wittgenstein and language that, when he finished, no one wanted to ask the first question. So, more to fill an awkward silence than anything else, I stuck my hand up and asked him what he saw as the role of a conservative thinker. ‘The role of a conservative thinker,’ he replied, in his charmingly diffident manner, ‘is to reassure the people that their prejudices are true.’ That beautiful aperçu never left me. It animated my career in politics, not least during the Brexit referendum. I spent part of my gap year in what we then still called Eastern Europe, observing the end of communism. Roger had given me various materials to carry to his dissident friends, so I watched the revolutions through Scrutonian eyes. Although it is nowadays fashionable to portray 1989 as a ‘return to Europe’, it was clear at the time that people mainly wanted an end to foreign occupation and a return to national sovereignty. Roger used to call it ‘the politics of the first person plural’: the need for a shared sense of identity in an open society. He was spot on. He alw...

Pretty, Powerful: Hokistrings Bracelets Raise Domestic Violence Awareness, Funds

BOSTON — When is a bracelet not just a bracelet? When it helps a battered women’s shelter halfway around the world. Ashley and Haley Kutzer, according to their mother, Donna Partamian-Kutzer, are both artistic and generous. The two teen sisters started Hokistrings, a line of beaded bracelets, last year. All the money from the sale of the popular bracelets goes toward the Women’s Support Center (WSC), a shelter for women escaping domestic violence in Yerevan. WSC Action Committee: From l to r. Bottom Row: Haley Kutzer, Ashley Kutzer. Top Row l to r: Donna Partamian-Kutzer, Maro Matosian, Lucine Kapreilian, Nancy Barsamian, Lenna Garibian and Laura Purutyan “My daughter Ashley has had a long-time hobby of making beaded jewelry. Last year she began a new design and her peers took an immediate liking to her bracelets. What was a simple hobby suddenly began to take up much more of her time as she was taking orders from many of her friends from school and at work. Ashley decided that she could ask people for a few dollars for each bracelet and then donate the money to a good cause. It was right around this time that Lenna Garibian spoke about WSC at an event at Holy Translators Church...

After the limo arrivals, Golden Globes go full vegan as environmental gesture

Once upon a time in Hollywood, a room full of movie and television stars sat down to a Sunday supper of king oyster mushrooms meant to look and feel like scallops. That entrée featured in an all-vegan menu at the Golden Globes, the first major awards show to entirely eliminate meat and dairy. The offerings were a last-minute change from menu selections previewed in December that had included fish and were a deliberate move to call attention to food sustainability, said the Hollywood Foreign Press Association, which selects and hosts the Globes, the first of the season’s major awards programs. Don’t miss: Ricky Gervais attacks ‘woke’ Hollywood and shreds Apple, Disney and Amazon in savage Golden Globes monologue Joaquin Phoenix, winner for best actor in a motion picture–drama (he picked up the award for his turn as “Joker”), eats vegan every day. His speech included a thank-you for the dining decision and its message for combating climate change. He told his fellow actors: “We don’t have to take private jets to Palm Springs. … I’ll try to do better, and I hope you will, too.” This particular night, Phoenix and follow nominees and guests sat down (those who took their seats...

Ultrathin ZSM-5 zeolite nanosheet laminated membrane for high-flux desalination of concentrated brines

The tremendous potential of zeolite membranes for efficient molecular separation via size-exclusion effects is highly desired by the energy and chemical industries, but its practical realization has been hindered by nonselective permeation through intercrystalline spaces and high resistance to intracrystalline diffusion in the conventional zeolite membranes of randomly oriented polycrystalline structures. Here, we report the synthesis of ZSM-5 zeolite nanosheets with very large aspect ratios and nanometer-scale thickness in the preferred straight channel direction. We used these ZSM-5 nanosheets to fabricate ultrathin (<500 nm) laminated membranes on macroporous alumina substrates by a simple dip-coating process and subsequent consolidation via vapor-phase crystallization. This ultrathin b-oriented ZSM-5 membrane has demonstrated extraordinary water flux combined with high salt rejection in pervaporation desalination for brines containing up to 24 weight % of dissolved NaCl. The ZSM-5 nanosheets may also offer opportunities to developing high-performance battery ion separators, catalysts, adsorbents, and thin-film sensors. The MFI-type zeolite, including its pure silica form ...

Brake hoses are the most government-regulated components on a vehicle. Anyone making brake assemblies must be

Brake hoses are the most government-regulated components on a vehicle. Anyone making brake assemblies must be registered with the Department of Transportation (DOT). All aftermarket hose, fittings and complete hoses must conform to FMVSS 106 and SAE J1401. These tests are demanding and often exceed what a vehicle will see in the real world. Brake hoses are the most government-regulated components on a vehicle. Anyone making brake assemblies must be registered with the Department of Transportation (DOT). All aftermarket hose, fittings and complete hoses must conform to FMVSS 106 and SAE J1401. These tests are demanding and often exceed what a vehicle will see in the real world. The DOT standard in a nutshell says brake hoses must be flexible in a wide range of temperatures while having a predictable expansion rate so the pedal feel and ABS response is the same in winter and summer. It also specifies that hoses must be able to bend and twist at certain angles without collapsing, kinking or bursting. FMVSS 106 and SAE J1401 do not specify construction or materials. These documents outline a test procedure that completed hoses must pass. These tests and standards include:• Markings:...
