The 2019 Mercedes-AMG G63 throws sensibility out the window. It accelerates like a sports car but

The 2019 Mercedes-AMG G63 throws sensibility out the window. It accelerates like a sports car but its burdened by the extra weight of its formidable off-road kit; it’s got the goods to theoretically take on just about any off-road obstacle but it rides on sticky summer tires that struggle to find grip on anything but tarmac. If common sense drives your vehicular purchasing decisions, then the G63 is not for you. However, those with the means to welcome a little irrationality into their lives are sure to love Mercedes-AMG’s high-performance SUV. Like a SEMA concept come to life, the G63 is stupid-fun in the best ways possible. Sure, a Mercedes-AMG GT is a better on-road performance car and the less powerful Mercedes-Benz G550’s standard all-season tires offer greater off-road performance (real off-roaders will want to slap on knobbier all-terrain rubber, though), but there’s something innately satisfying about driving a nearly three-ton SUV that’s capable of out-accelerating many sports cars. With a starting price of $147,500, the G63 costs a cool $23,000 more than a G550. Is the AMG-badged box really worth the extra money over its lesser Benz branded sibling? That depends....

Energy consumption is a big problem because it increases the carbon footprint, so industries are actively

Energy consumption is a big problem because it increases the carbon footprint, so industries are actively looking for a solution that will at least minimize that. As the energy prices are rising on a global scale, there is a short term necessity to reduce fuel bills to remain competitive on the market. This is where waste head recovery comes into play. Waste heat recovery is a type of recovery system that has huge potentials in energy saving in existing systems. The logic behind these systems is that if we can reduce the fuel used to produce heat in boiler installation, we increase the efficiency of heating. This ultimately results in lowering fuel usage. CO2 emissions into our atmosphere have damaged the ozone layer and are severely impacting our climate. Global warming is a real thing that must be managed otherwise the situation will become so bad that it might become irreversible. A respected scientific journal, the Climate Dynamics”, published a report in 2016 and that report stated that some developing countries might have to reverse carbon emission at least by 2030 and some by 2050 if we want to put an end to this life-threatening problem. And this is where waste heat reco...

Anterior Stromal Puncture Needle Market Is Set To Experience Revolutionary Growth By 2025

Anterior Stromal Puncture (ASP) is a procedure for the treatment of Recurrent Corneal Erosion (RCE), removal of keratoconus sub epithelial nodules, and improvement of contact lenses tolerance. The procedure involves surgical incisions (around 15 to 25 incisions spaced from 0.5 mm to 1 mm) using a short bent needle on the corneal surface. This is done to facilitate an inflammatory response serving as an anchor for the epithelium to be attached to the stroma. View Report: https://www.transparencymarketresearch.com/anterior-stromal-puncture-needle-market.html Anterior stromal puncture needles are available in standard sizes, usually 5/8 inch (25 gauge). These help ophthalmologists to perform desired number of incisions in the cornea. Ophthalmologists around the world have been adopting the anterior stromal puncture treatment method owing to the increase in healing rates in the treatment of RCE as demonstrated by various clinical trials. Incidence of Recurrent Corneal Erosion (RCE) has been rising at a constant rate. Other methods for the treatment of Recurrent Corneal Erosion (RCE), including manual superficial keratectomy and laser phototherapeutic keratectomy (PTK), have been tr...

For forty years Mr Hasan Şemsi has directed and inspired the development of Berdan Civata, based

For forty years Mr Hasan Şemsi has directed and inspired the development of Berdan Civata, based in the ancient city of Tarsus, in south-east Turkey. Here he talks about how a small business grew to be a fully integrated production operation and, remarkably candidly, of the mistakes that taught him how to achieve the highest levels of quality assurance for critical application construction fasteners. In Turkey in the 1980s, an employee who had worked for 15 years over a 25 year period was entitled to retire. That is how I was able to retire from Temel (STFA) Bolt, then the biggest bolt factory in Turkey, aged 43, and join my brother, Yunus, in setting up a 200m2 workshop in Tarsus with five employees. We realised that we had no possibility to be competitive in low strength bolts so we needed to produce high value-added bolt and nuts. At our workshop, the bolts were hot forged and the threads either machined or rolled. Then they had to be taken to a company 40km away for quenching and tempering. Then they were shipped 450km to Ankara for hot zinc coating. Finally they were tested by a state institution in Adana, around 40km from our workshop. I already had twelve years’ experienc...

1933 Industries is tapping into the Silver state, as a new era dawns in cannabis

1933 Industries (CSE:TGIF) (OTCMKTS:TGIF) is a cannabis company with operations in the United States and Canada. Operating via three subsidiaries, 1933 owns licensed medical and recreational cannabis cultivation and production assets, hemp-based, CBD infused products, CBD extraction services and a specialized cannabis advisory firm, that supports clients in security, intelligence and due diligence. As for the name? The “1933” in the company name is a nod to the year when the prohibition of alcohol ended in the US. Today, 1933 Industries aims to capitalize on opportunities that have come as a result of the end of cannabis prohibition in Canada and industry legalization in a collection of US states. Vancouver-based 1933 Industries has three subsidiaries. One is Alternative Medicine Association LC, a licensed medical and adult-use cannabis cultivation and production facility in Las Vegas that produces its own line of products and manufactures other company’s brands. AMA’s products include concentrates such as Cake Batter, Crumble and Sugar; a vape pen sold with distillate oil; and several flower strains.  With more than 42 million visitors each year, Las Vegas is poised to become o...

5-Axis Roundup: Machining Complex Parts With One Setup

There’s good money to be made machining complex parts for industries such as aerospace, automotive, medical, firearms and others. If you’re thinking about grabbing a piece of the action, chances are you’re thinking about investing in 5-axis machines. That’s the only way to handle complex parts without switching to different equipment for each step of the process. You may have a bit of 5-axis experience from a previous job or it’s just as possible this is a brand new direction for you. Knowing where to start can be a bit confusing. Not to worry. No matter what your level of experience, Doosan’s lineup of 5-axis machines has enough variety to provide a perfect match between our equipment and your application. Life Before 5-Axis Many machine shops are accustomed to cobbling together contraptions in an attempt to add a little boost in productivity. For example, retrofitting a 4th axis table with a tailstock onto a 3-axis mill, or putting a 4/5th axis trunnion table onto a 3-axis mill to give the operator access to more of the component faces. In this incremental approach to 5-axis capability, you likely experienced more than a few headaches such as maxing out your table weight...

Destiny 2: Season of Opulence – Pinnacle weapons guide

It wouldn’t be a new season in Destiny 2 without a bunch of new Pinnacle weapons, and there’s three to get your hands on in the Season of Opulence. Pinnacle weapons are some of the most difficult to earn in Destiny 2 as they usually come with a bit of a grind. There are three up for grabs again this season from the Crucible, Vanguard and Gambit, with the Crucible getting its first Pinnacle Sniper Rifle. You’ll be able to pick up the quests for the Pinnacle weapons from Lord Shaxx, Zavala and The Drifter respectively, so let’s take a look at each weapon in detail and, more importantly, how to get them. The quests for these weapons are somewhat easier than previous seasons, but they’ll still take a while to complete. It would be a good idea to team up in a fireteam with different weapons to maximise progression, but that choice is up to you – after all, I’m not your mum. You’ll first need to pick up the In Your Sights quest from Lord Shaxx in the Tower to get your hands on the Revoker. It has the unique perk Reversal of Fortune, where missed shots are returned to the magazine after a short duration, but only one bullet can be returned at a time. Interestingly, you won’t lose any p...

Skincare products are my jam. I take my job as BAZAAR.com’s beauty director very seriously—and by

Skincare products are my jam. I take my job as BAZAAR.com’s beauty director very seriously—and by that I mean I will try anything. I’ll happily sacrifice my skin in the pursuit of becoming an all-knowing encyclopedia of all things beauty: I love a lot of products and feel meh about most others. Because for a skincare product to be genuinely great in my book, it has to have a killer combination of chic-but-functional packaging, top-notch ingredient standards, and results that are both instant and cumulative over time. So I was intrigued by Kylie Skin, the latest beauty venture by 21-year-old non-dermatologist Kylie Jenner. My Instagram inbox was already buzzing with questions about the line: Is it good? Should I try it? What should I buy? I received a PR set of Kylie Skin products a day before they launched. In my box was the Foaming Face Wash, Walnut Face Scrub, Vanilla Milk Toner, Vitamin C Serum, Face Moisturizer, and Eye Cream. I didn’t receive the Makeup Removing Wipes, which is fine, because I’m personally anti-face wipe. To see how the Kylie Skin products truly performed, I decided to swap out all my usual skincare products for the beauty mogul̵...

IOC and GAIL (India) Ltd are still evaluating plans to invest in a ₹ 60 billion

IOC and GAIL (India) Ltd are still evaluating plans to invest in a ₹ 60 billion LNG import terminal being developed by the Adani Group in Odisha. The plan was announced in 2016. According to a preliminary pact signed in September 2016, the Adani Group had agreed to give away half of equity stake in the LNG terminal to IOC and GAIL. The Adani Group said construction orders have been placed and the LNG terminal is on track. Adanis have roped in French energy giant Total to invest in Dhamra LNG terminal. According to the 2016 pact, the country’s top refiner IOC and top gas transporter GAIL were to hold 39% and 11% equity stakes, respectively, in the Dhamra LNG terminal. The Adani Group was to hold the remaining 50%. IOC and Adani were to give away 1% each to a financial institution at a later stage, reducing their stakes to 38% and 49%, respectively. IOC’s 5 mt a year LNG terminal at Ennore in TN is almost ready to go on stream. IOC the nation’s biggest oil firm, said it will commission its first LNG import terminal at Ennore in Tamil Nadu this month. The ₹ 51.51 billion terminal is complete and would be commissioned after completion of dredging of the channel that will bring cryog...
