A parka is a wintertime essential for much of humankind. Without one, layering enough to stay warm can be a nuisance. But oh, what a sea of decisions: How thick does it need to be? Do you need the hood to be lined with fur? How do you feel about faux fur? We’re still left to ponder pockets, length, and lining. And what on earth does “fill power” mean? While all of the above may or may not be critical decisions, they’re all things we have to consider. A parka is something we hope to invest in for the long haul, and a parka that doesn’t last more than a few seasons is, in my humble opinion, not a parka at all. Let’s start with the filling, and what fill power means, exactly. That’s how many cubic inches of loft one ounce of a given variety of feather produces. Fill power does not necessarily tell you how warm a parka might be because it doesn’t denote how heavily packed the down is inside your coat. What the fill power of a down does tell you is how well a certain typ...

Tissue Culture Incubator Market to Witness Steady Growth Through 2026

A tissue culture incubator is designed to maintain constant temperature along with high humidity that allows the growth of tissue culture cells or microbiological culture under a CO2 atmosphere with constant temperature. A majority of companies manufacturing tissue culture incubators are bringing in their new technologies and advanced engineering techniques to yield the well-established growth of cell culture. Standard tissue culture incubators, in a broad category, include air-jacketed incubators, water-jacketed incubators, and direct heat incubators. Companies are strategizing their sales by carrying out merger and acquisition activities in order to maintain their dominance in the industry. A standard tissue culture incubator offers a CO2 range of 0.3% to 19.9%, temperature of +4°C to 50°C, along with humidity levels superior than 80% RH. Tissue culture incubators find a large range of applications in end-use settings, including research and clinical laboratories, where these incubators are used to lead tissue culture and cell culture work. Tissue culture incubators are also used for cell cultivation, and IVF and stem cell applications. Newly launched tissue culture incubators...

Threat or promise? E-auto boom could cost industry jobs

In this Tuesday, May 14, 2019 photo, robot arms stand at the assembly line during the reconstruction for the electrical car body construction at a press tour at the plant of the German manufacturer Volkswagen AG (VW) in Zwickau, Germany. Volkswagen will total shift into electric cars at the plant in Zwickau and the first vehicles are to roll off the assembly line at the end of 2019. (AP Photo/Jens Meyer) Over 115 years the auto industry in the east German town of Zwickau has lived through wrenching upheavals including World War II and the collapse of communism. Now the city’s 90,000 people are plunging headlong into another era of change: top employer Volkswagen’s total shift into electric cars at the local plant. The world’s largest carmaker is creating its first all-electric plant and phasing out production of the internal combustion-engine cars built by generations of local workers. The electric transformation raises questions about the long-term prospects of the auto industry, which employs 840,000 people in Germany and millions worldwide, as a source of jobs for communities like Zwickau, which gave the world both the luxury brand Audi and the communist-er...

This family of potable water components (valves, regulators, fittings, tubing and hoses) includes potable water solenoid valves. These NS-Series NSF (National Sanitation Foundation) certified valves (from GC Valves) are an excellent choice for food and beverage grade potable water applications.

NS301 series valves are direct acting with an armature that acts directly on the valve orifice to control fluid flow and does not require a minimum pressu...

Whether you’re nursing a back injury or just want to experience the thrill of levitation, aerial

Whether you’re nursing a back injury or just want to experience the thrill of levitation, aerial yoga is a playful way to improve the health of your mind and body. With training, some believe it’s possible for yoga masters to levitate thanks to special powers known as “siddhis.” Whether or not you believe in this spiritual power, you can still get your practice off the ground with aerial yoga. Aerial yoga, also known as “antigravity yoga,” incorporates silk hammocks suspended from the ceiling, which support practitioners as they do yoga postures. Invented in 2014 by New York-based choreographer Christopher Harrison, aerial yoga combines traditional yoga poses with some Pilates and dance elements. Not to be confused with aerial technique classes, which use elements of circus performance such as trapeze, hoops, and silks to perform acrobatic and dance tricks in the air, aerial yoga is focused on using the silk sling to specifically assist with yoga postures. Not only does aerial yoga help strengthen core muscles—practitioners are essentially always engaging their core by holding onto the silk hammock—it’s also a good option for people with back pain, because the hammock prov...

The ultimate Rockumentary is coming to the Reef Gateway

GET ready for a night full of fist pumps, head-banging and belting out classic Aussie rock tunes – the ultimate Australian “Rockumentary” is coming to the Reef Gateway Hotel on July 20. The “Lost Legends Showcase” is a heartfelt tribute to the Aussie legends of rock and roll who dominated the music scene in the 70s-80s. The show was originally formed by three members of the Australian pop/rock band, Masters Apprentices when they attended the funeral of founding member and lead vocalist Jim Keays. Their combination of grief, respect and reminiscing resulted in a fresh and inspired concept of telling the stories of the iconic legends they performed alongside as well as celebrating the glory days of Aussie rock. Known as the Dead Singer Band, the group is comprised of members Vanessa Lea, Colin Burgess, a founding member and drummer of AC/DC, Denny Burgess, former member of “The Throb”, and Roger Faynes, voted Australia’s Best Bass Player in 1986. The Dead Singer Band will honour the legacy of several Australian singing icons paying fitting homage to the lives of the band members, mates and colleagues with a truth that can only come from genuine experi...

The Invasion of Giant Pythons Threatening Florida | Science

In the Everglades, everything still looks the same. The waving saw grass, the cypress and pine trees draped with air plants, the high, white clouds parked like dirigibles above their shadows—if you’ve been to the Everglades before, and you go back, you’ll still find these. But now there is also a weird quiet. In the campsites of Everglades National Park, raccoons don’t rattle the trash can lids at four in the morning. Marsh rabbits don’t scatter with a nervous rustle on the hiking trails as you walk by. Tires don’t shriek when somebody brakes to avoid an opossum transfixed by headlights in the middle of the road. In fact, roadkill, which used to be common in this wildest part of Florida, is no longer seen. The raccoons and marsh rabbits and opossums and other small, warmblooded animals are gone, or almost gone, because Burmese pythons seem to have eaten them. The marsh’s weird outdoor quiet is the deep, endlessly patient, laser-focused quiet of these invasive predators. About two feet long when hatched, Burmese pythons can grow to 20 feet and 200 pounds; they are among the largest snakes in the world. The pythons are mostly ambush hunters, and constrictors. They kill smaller ani...
