Best portable blender 2020: small cordless mini blenders for time-pressed healthniks

These portable blenders will whip up a delicious smoothie, purée baby food and mix a cool cocktail without so much as a sniff of electricity Battery-powered portable blenders are a relatively new addition to the health and fitness canon and shouldn’t be confused with mains-powered, single-serve personal blenders which are smaller and more efficient at blending a wider variety of ingredients. Portable blenders, on the other hand, require no mains power to operate so they can be used, well, anywhere really. They’re also cheap to buy and you can charge them using any USB-based power pack, computer, car charger or mains plug. Portable blenders are perfectly capable of whipping up smoothies on the go (assuming you’re able to take the ingredients with you, which let’s face it is totally impractical) and they’re pretty good at pulverising ice and mixing cocktails, too. They’re best suited for home or office use, campsites and picnics, or whipping up simple stuff like protein shakes after a workout at the gym. They are also especially handy (in fact they’re a Godsend) for puréeing baby food on the fly. If you’re sold on the idea of joining the ever growing throng of healthni...

Folding is ubiquitous in nature with examples ranging from the formation of cellular components to winged insects. It finds technological applications including packaging of solar cells and space structures, deployable biomedical devices and self-assembling robots and airbags. Here we demonstrate sequential self-folding structures realized by thermal activation of spatially-variable patterns that are 3D printed with digital shape memory polymers, which are digital materials with different shape memory behaviors. The time-dependent behavior of each polymer allows the temporal sequencing of activation when the structure is subjected to a uniform temperature. This is demonstrated via a series of 3D printed structures that respond rapidly to a thermal stimulus and self-fold to specified shapes in controlled shape changing sequences. Measurements of the sp...

News Corp is a network of leading companies in the worlds of diversified media, news, education, and information services. THE WRITER Malcolm Gladwell famously wrote about the ’10,000 Hour Rule’, which states that if you practice a specific task, like football, for a certain amount of time over a certain period, you can become a total pro. Since we’re short on time, we’ll need some extra help, which is why we’ll be buying the best football training equipment to up our game on the pitch. If you’re looking for a cheap and easy football training aid, a speed agility ladder that can help with coordination and quickness training, can be a useful item for the back yard. A ‘skills trainer’ is another useful, inexpensive piece of kit: it’s a cord that attaches to your wrist and wraps around the ball so you can practice your shooting, passing and ball control without bending to retrieve the ball every few seconds. Target goals are great for kids who want to practice their shooting in the backyard, as are rebounder nets. For those looking for the next level in intensity – or just want a fun new gadget – we’ve got you ...

Types Of Welding: Their Applications, Advantages, and Disadvantages

From MIG, TIG, and arc welding to oxyacetyle welding, here’s a complete guide on the common types of welding methods used today. Welding is the process of joining two materials together by the application of heat through an external (electric arc or heaters) or internal entity (friction). Many believe that Welding is a term that is reserved for metals. However, that is not true as a material like plastic can also be welded. In this article, we will discuss some of the most common weld techniques used in the industry and where they are used. The types of welding mentioned here are quite comprehensive but apply only to metals. The following are the most popular metalworking weld methods we use today. As the name suggests, arc welding uses an electric arc to melt materials before joining them together. The electric arc is brought between the two materials using an electrode (mostly non-consumable electrode). This electric arc can create temperatures upwards of 3500°C, which is sufficiently high to melt high strength metals like carbon steel.  This method also uses shielding gas in conjunction with arc welding. There are different types of arc welding such as Shielded Metal Arc Weld...

Police say they’ve arrested Oregon City nail bandit

OREGON CITY, Ore. — Oregon City police have arrested a 56-year-old Oregon City man accused of throwing roofing nails from his vehicle onto roads across the Portland metro area over the past couple years. On Tuesday around 5:37 a.m., police caught the suspect, Bret Michael Wilson, throwing nails onto South Center Street in Oregon City. Wilson told police he’d thrown nails over 50 times onto streets over the past couple years, not only in Oregon City but across the metro area. Wilson is being held at the Clackamas County Jail and faces four counts of second-degree disorderly conduct, police said. In late 2018, Oregon City police offered a $1,000 reward for information that led to the arrest of the suspect after nails were found on multiple roads in Oregon City, including at Linn Avenue from Holmes Lane to 5th Street; on South Center Street from Telford Road to 2nd Street; and on Washington Street near 9th Street and 13th Street.

The Peak Design Travel Tripod rethinks what a go-anywhere tripod looks like, eschewing the fold-up designs

The Peak Design Travel Tripod rethinks what a go-anywhere tripod looks like, eschewing the fold-up designs of competitors to more easily fit into your pack. Photo hobbyists and pros know that a lot more goes into a tripod than three legs and a place to mount your camera. Construction quality, ergonomics, and design choices matter too. Until now, buying a quality travel tripod meant going with a folding model with reversible legs—compact, but still something that goes on the outside of most camera bags. Peak Design has reframed the concept with its Travel Tripod, a Kickstarter darling now coming to retail in an aluminum version for $349.95, or in a lighter carbon fiber edition for $599.95. We took the latter for a test drive and found it to be worth every penny, as well as our Editors’ Choice. When its legs are closed, the Travel Tripod has a similar footprint to an insulated canteen, something other tripods can’t match. There’s an engineering feat made to get there—the extending legs aren’t circular. Instead, the tubes have beveled edges and flat surfaces—harder to fabricate, but with less wasted space. When closed down the tripod is 15.4 inches tall with...

It looks like a tube made of glass but it’s actually aluminum. Well, aluminum with an asterisk beside it — this is not elemental aluminum but rather a material made using it. We got onto the buzz about “transparent aluminum” as a result of a Tweet from whence the image above came. This Tweet was posted by [Jo Pitesky], a Science Systems Engineer at the Jet Propulsion Lab in Pasadena. [Jo] reported that at a recent JPL technology open house she had the chance to handle a tube of material that looks for all the world like a section of glass tubing, but was billed as transparent aluminum. [Jo] tweeted this because it was an interesting artifact that few people get to play with and she’s right, this is fascinating! The the material itself is intriguing, and I immediately had practical questions like what is this stuff? What is it good for? How is it made? And is it really aluminum rendered transparent by some science fiction process? As with many things in life, the answer to that question is, “It depends.” In this case, it depends on how you define aluminum. Or more precisely, it depends on what your expectations are for a material that purports to be aluminum. Regular old aluminum...

Lindow Man, officially known as Lindow II, is the name given to a bog body that

Lindow Man, officially known as Lindow II, is the name given to a bog body that was discovered in Cheshire, North West England. Radiocarbon dating of Lindow Man shows that he lived around the 1st century AD. Additionally, examination of the body shows that Lindow Man died a violent death. It is unclear, however, as to why he was killed in the first place. In any case, after Lindow Man’s death, his body was thrown into a pool in a bog. As a result of the bog’s conditions, the body was well-preserved and eventually unearthed during the 1980s. The modern story of Lindow Man begins in 1984. In August that year, Lindow Man was discovered by workers of a peat-cutting company on the edge of Lindow Moss (hence the name of the bog body), near Wilmslow in Cheshire, North West England. The initial discovery was made on the 1st of August by Andy Mould , a commercial peat cutter. Mould saw something like a lump of wood on the conveyor belt of the shredding machine. Having removed the object, he threw it, and when the lump hit the ground, the peat fell off to reveal a human foot. This was not the first time Mould made such a gruesome discovery. On the 13th of May 1983, Mould and another coll...

Campbell’s $14M Development and Cultural Center Is All About Impact

By Jeremy LydicCAMPBELL, Ohio – In a project for his technology class, Mihali Koullias was challenged with protecting an egg. The task was clear: build a car that protects the egg during a short trip down a diagonal track. Koullias, seventh grade, and his classmates designed and built each car to a specific length and width, then used computers and 3D printers to design and make the wheels. His team’s first egg cracked, he says, but they solved the issue by upgrading the car’s seat belt “to make it secure.”  Hands-on projects like this are the cornerstone of education at the Northeast Ohio Impact Academy, a STEM (science, technology, engineering and mathematics) school adjoined to Campbell Middle School.   Koullias, who aspires to be a cardiothoracic surgeon, says projects like this make him more confident with problem solving and working with his hands, and he’s eager for the forthcoming health pathway in the new Community Literacy, Workforce and Cultural Center, set to open May 1 next to the school. The idea for the Impact Academy came about around the same time Campbell City Schools was planning the Cultural Center, says Kent Polen, the academy’s chief administrative officer...
