It’s a well-known narrative: The state of American manufacturing is challenging in the 21st century amid cheaper exports, trade wars and an ever-evolving international marketplace. But near vineyards in south Healdsburg, the Criveller Group is proving success can be had. It also helps that the product Criveller makes is in great demand on the North Coast: production equipment for wineries and breweries that range from large stainless steel tanks for fermentation to destemmers for crushing grapes. Its customers include local beer, wine and spirits businesses such as Ledson Wines, Siduri Wines, HenHo...

If you’re like me, you’ve taken one look at the ab wheel at the gym and gone running back to your mat. For such a small piece of equipment, the ab wheel is intimidating, and with good reason. Eric and Ryan Johnson, the NSCA-certified trainers behind Homage Fitness, told POPSUGAR that although the ab wheel first rose to fame through cheesy infomercials, “out of the endless amounts of ‘As Seen on TV’ abdominal products out there, the ab wheel is the best piece of equipment, hands down.” Unlike exercises like sit-ups and crunches, they explained, the ab wheel trains your abs to resist the motion of your spine extending. “When done correctly, by not allowing your lower back to extend or belly button sag towards the floor, the core is working to stabilise the spine,” Eric and Ryan said. They use ab wheel exercises as challenging progressions from the plank; once your plank variations start feeling too run-of-the-mill, use an ab wheel to spice things up. Be warned, ab wheel rollouts are tough; you’ll probably be shaking the first few times you try them. But Eric and Ryan gave POPSUGAR four exercises to help you work your way up to...

2020 Die-Casting Competition: prizes for innovative aluminium die-castings | foundry-planet.com

The winners of the International Aluminium Die-Casting Award 2020 have been announced. In all, four castings were awarded prizes at EUROGUSS 2020 in Nuremberg, while two others received special commendations. The ninth International Alumini-um Die-Casting Competition was organised by Düsseldorf-based Gesamtverband der Alumini-umindustrie e. V. (GDA). It was run in partnership with the German Foundrymen’s Association (Bundesverband der Deutschen Gießerei-Industrie, BDG), the Swiss aluminium association (alu.ch) and the non-ferrous metals trade association of the Austrian Economic Chambers (Fachverband Nichteisenmetalle in der Wirtschaftskammer Österreich). Die-casting has been a successful industrial casting process for series or mass production of structural parts for decades. Die-casting foundries have become increasingly important as sup-pliers to automobile manufacturers, companies engaged in mechanical and plant engineering and other branches of industry, such as communications technology, the furniture industry and the electrical and electronics industries. The development of ever-newer die-cast components is advancing rapidly. Whether it be structural elements, parts for e...

3D Geocells Protect Environmental Geomembrane Covers

Economic pressures, public desire for aesthetic green solutions and the increasing trend towards climate extremes are all factors in the growing need for effective soil-stabilization measures. In urban and rural environments, structures such as dams, landfill covers, lagoons and storm water containment basins need soil-stabilization systems to cover and protect geomembrane liners that are integral to the system. Soil, aggregate and concrete protective covers can be secured against known gravitational, hydrodynamic and seismic forces using 3D soil confinement systems, which are referred to as geocells. Without the use of 3D geocell technology, soil and aggregate are commonly used over geomembranes on slopes of less than 3H:1V. When slope gradients are greater than 3H:1V, soil and aggregate covers need to be stabilized with a geocell system to avoid soil movement and potential failure. In arid areas, cover depth may range from 3 to 6 in. In conditions that support vegetation and cover, depth may range from 6 to 24 in. or greater where the final depth is a function of the vegetation’s characteristics. Geocells are available in depths from 3 to 8 in., allowing for sufficient coverag...

Sports betting jumpstarts gaming and kiosks; (hey, cash isn’t dead) | Commentary

Lance Arnett presents the Glory prototype sports betting kiosk at the Global Gaming Expo. Photos by Networld Media Group. Gaming continues to become a popular form of entertainment as more states permit sports betting. And while it’s not one of the larger kiosk verticals, gaming continues to grow rapidly and serves as a springboard for self service technology innovation as casinos seek new ways to enhance the guest experience. Last year, the U.S. Supreme Court overturned the Professional and Amateur Sports Protection Act, allowing states besides Nevada to permit sports betting. That’s been a game changer for sports, for gaming and for the technologies the industry adopts. National Hockey League Commissioner Gary Bettman told the expo’s sports betting symposium at the Sands Expo Center that he wouldn’t be surprised if future NHL broadcasts include sports gambling information. Bettman, as reported by the Las Vegas Review-Journal, said the league recognizes sports betting will boost viewership, and that NHL broadcasts could integrate with sports betting. I pondered the implications of Bettman’s comments on sports betting and professional sports busines...

For many years now I have employed “ATGATT” when I ride. In my case, especially when commuting, this means I am wearing over-pants or other riding pants that will fit over work clothes. Being roomy enough to handle this situation means that the armor in these pants might not be held securely enough to remain in place in the event of a crash. To mitigate this situation, for the past several years I have been removing the installed armor in my riding pants and have instead used MX style knee protectors in their stead. I’ve had protectors from Alpinestars, Thor, and Shift Racing* over the years and they’ve served me well. The problem with the aforementioned protectors is that they are not designed for street riding. I have used them with the idea I would rather have protectors I know will stay in place offering some protection, rather than the risk of suitable protectors not remaining in place when I need them. WebBikeWorld was recently offered a chance to review the AR Knee Protectors from Forcefield and I jumped at the chance to try out some armor that might be the best of both worlds. *I want to point out that I have, and still use, those same Shift Racing knee protectors from 2...
