The ‘Chair Challenge’ is taking over TikTok and here’s how it works

We have made some truly wild discoveries on TikTok recently. This week, Ariana Grande lookalike Paige Niemann went viral for her somewhat spooky similarities to the singer. Meanwhile, Victorious fans were freaking out over a girl that looked like a combination of Victoria Justice and Avan Jogia. Now, there’s the absolutely baffling Chair Challenge – and no-one knows how it works. To put it simply, the challenge basically involves grabbing a chair and standing up with it. But for some reason only women are able to stand up with the chair, while men struggle. Honestly, it makes absolutely no sense. Tried the tik tok chair challenge cause i thought it was fake…… #TikTok #ChairChallenge pic.twitter.com/5Nf5NYsMAt If you want to try out the challenge for yourself, you’ll need a chair, a wall and some willing participants. First, stand right up against the wall, making sure you’re facing it. Take three footsteps back and grab a chair, making sure it’s right in front of you. Bend over the chair so that your body is at a 90-degree angle. Next, place your head against the wall and lift the chair up to your chest, keeping your head against the wall the...

County forces Bent Shovel Brewing to relocate its tasting room because it’s too damn popular

Visitors to Bent Shovel Brewing in Oregon City have found the tasting room’s doors closed for the last week, but its owners want to assure everyone that the brewery is doing just fine. Bent Shovel Brewing has been forced to move its patio and tasting room operations due to the traffic impact the demand for its beer has had on its rural neighborhood. As philosopher P. Diddy once opined: With mo’ money comes mo’ problems. For the past four years, Bent Shovel Brewing has been handcrafting a range of beer styles on a 10-bbl system in a retrofitted red barn located along the Clackamas River on the outskirts of Oregon City. Sounds perfect, right? The brewery’s business is strong, and it continues to grow thanks to the support of craft beer lovers from around the region. Bent Shovel has experienced strong double digit year over year growth for the past three years. In early 2018, Co-owner Rick Strauss was able to leave his corporate job and dedicate 100 percent of his time to the brewery. At that time, he doubled the brewery’s production capacity with the purchase of a new 10-bbl brewhouse to keep up with growing demand. “We want to apologize to our customers for the abrupt short noti...

Wildfires Forcing Electric Car Owners To Find New Ways To Power Up : NPR

Clarence Dold used his 2013 Nissan Leaf to power his house during a four-day blackout in Santa Rosa, Calif., as a result of the Kincade Fire. Vanessa Romo/NPR hide caption Clarence Dold used his 2013 Nissan Leaf to power his house during a four-day blackout in Santa Rosa, Calif., as a result of the Kincade Fire. Lawrence Levee’s evacuation call came at 4 a.m. The Getty fire was just a few miles away. He and all of his Mandeville Canyon neighbors needed to evacuate. He grabbed what he could and threw it into his bright blue electric Chevy Bolt. His car battery was only charged halfway, but that left him with plenty of power to make a quick getaway and then some. But after driving around the next day, running errands in an area he didn’t know well, he was in a pickle. He couldn’t find a charging station. And he had 25 miles left to his tank. “Where are the cheap charging stations?” Levy asked a Facebook group for Bolt owners, where members have been talking about how to charge up in a disaster situation. Levee is one of hundreds of thousands of electric car drivers in California, many of whom are caught in a state-wide struggle for electric power. As...

Understanding and sourcing the right OEM/ODM manufacturer | Security News

Local surveillance companies often struggle when deciding between distributing third-party brands or selling their own branded surveillance products, especially when the company has already achieved some level of recognition among their customers and/or other key players. Distributing a famous third-party brand is a way to “play it safe” in an environment where there is little budget to spend on marketing, public relationships and other expenses related to product placement. Someone else has already made those investments. Nevertheless, when talking about identity, owning a brand eases the way for customers to associate the local company with the type of products/services it offers. A local company seeking more prestige can create its own “additional value” for clients, rather than simply merchandising and trading. By the time a local surveillance company decides to sell its own branded products, another decision needs to be made: whether to manufacture products or to find OEM/ODM manufacturing sources. Understanding the differences between the approaches related to project development and budget planning will provide guidance to any local company. Self-manufacturing represents...

Hands-On The Shaper Origin: A Tool That Changes How We Build

I bet the hand saw really changed some things. One day you’re hacking away at a log with an ax. It’s sweaty, awful work, and the results are never what you’d expect. The next day the clever new apprentice down at the blacksmith’s shop is demoing his beta of his new Saw invention and looking for testers, investors, and a girlfriend. From that day onward the work is never the same again. It’s not an incremental change, it’s a change. Pure and simple. This is one of those moments. The world of tools is seeing a new change, and I think this is the first of many tools that will change the way we build. Like most things that are a big change, the components to build them have been around for a while. In fact, most of the time, the actual object in question has existed in some form or another for years. Like a crack in a dam, eventually someone comes up with the variation on the idea that is just right. That actually does what everything else has been promising to do. It’s not new, but it’s the difference between crude and gasoline. My poetic rasping aside, the Shaper Origin is the future of making things. It’s tempting to boil it down and say that it’s a CNC machine, or a router. It’...

Council Post: What Is The SaaS Architecture Maturity Model?

Companies are moving their on-premise software applications to the cloud and embracing the software as a service (SaaS) licensing and delivery model, hoping to reap its numerous benefits, which include cost savings, security, flexibility, disaster recovery and business continuity, scalability and access to automatic updates, among others. However, just because a solution is advertised as SaaS in the cloud doesn’t necessarily mean it delivers all the above-mentioned benefits. Microsoft’s SaaS maturity model provides a framework for accessing SaaS solutions and describing their maturity along three dimensions: scalability, multi-tenancy and configurability. The SaaS maturity model is broken down into four levels, and each of them brings certain opportunities and challenges you should be aware of when accessing SaaS vendors. At this level of the SaaS maturity model, the only way to support multiple customers (tenants) is to provide each of them a separate copy of the software. Because the provided copies can be customized by writing custom code, each customer is required to run a different instance of the software and scalability is non-existent, even though the software is techni...

Follow These Steps to Purge Accumulator-Head Blow Molders : Plastics Technology

Preventive purging with a commercial product between resins or colors and during normal shutdown and startup cycles can prevent excessive loss of resin and production time. Typical products made by accumulator-head blow molding include single-wall hollow bottles like these. (Photos: Thermo Fisher Scientific, Rochester, N.Y.) The value of purging is especially beneficial when shutting down for an extended amount of time, like a weekend. Thermo Fisher fills the barrel with Dyna-Purge to prevent oxidation, a major cause of degradation. As the machine cools, Dyna-Purge will solidify and shrink, pulling residue away from the barrel walls. Large blow molding machines at ThermoFisher Scientific’s Rochester, N.Y., facility routinely use Dyna-Purge F2 product for cleaning heads and extruder screws. ThermoFisher molding personnel say this practice reduces black-speck contamination after the machine comes out of a scheduled shutdown. Recommended purging procedures outlined in this article deliver significant time savings and reduce resin waste during startup, says ThermoFisher. If you operate accumulator-head blow molders, most likely you have tried to reduce the loss of time and material ...
