Then the chance of scattered thunderstorms overnight. Low 69F. Winds light and variable. Chance of rain 80%. Locally heavy rainfall possible. County Administrator Scott Simpson relayed some more expensive news regarding the courthouse renovation project to the Halifax County Board of Supervisors during their Monday night meeting, this time to the tune of $485,829 for the 10th change order. Simpson explained much of the money would go towards unanticipated work of shoring up the back of the original courthouse building with concrete, construction of footings and concrete anchor bolts as well as grading to get the land containin...

With the stated intent of combating illegal immigration, Senators Chuck Schumer (D., N.Y.) and Lindsey Graham

With the stated intent of combating illegal immigration, Senators Chuck Schumer (D., N.Y.) and Lindsey Graham (R., S.C.) are crafting new legislation to institute a national identification card. The card would be required in order to be eligible for employment, and would in turn enable employers to identify and reject illegal immigrants who are seeking work. The card would be biometric, i.e., containing identifying characteristics unique to the physiology of the cardholder. In this case the biometrics would most likely be comprised of either a fingerprint or a scan of the veins on the back of the hand. This is not the first time a biometric card has been proposed: in the wake of 9-11, there was a strong push for a national ID card on the basis of national security. Schumer and Graham claim that the institution of a national ID would not be accompanied by the creation of a complementary database; however, no national identification system has ever operated independently of a database. It would be impossible to run a national ID system without a corresponding database available for purposes of verification. Thus, although the card would initially include only biometric and citizen...

For many, retirement is a time to pinch pennies on everyday expenses. It might help explain

For many, retirement is a time to pinch pennies on everyday expenses. It might help explain why retirees are so fond of Costco. Research shows that older shoppers tend to prefer the discount warehouse club over popular retailers such as Walmart and Target. Further, baby boomers — there are about 74 million of them alive today in the U.S. — are more likely than millennials to renew their Costco memberships, which run $60 to $120 a year. As a boomer and regular Costco shopper, I’ve learned over the years that some of the best values can be found in the warehouse club’s own Kirkland Signature line of products. In fact, one in five products on Costco’s shelves carry the Kirkland brand. Many of these exclusive items hold unique appeal to retirees as well as near-retirees like me. Oh, and don’t let an empty nest discourage you from buying in bulk. Check expiration dates, stock up on items with long shelf lives, and remember that a surprising number of foods can be frozen. Take a look at our list of retiree-friendly Kirkland products from Costco. In 2016, I first explained “Why I Bought My Prescription Glasses at Costco,” and since then I...

Advanced Manufacturing Media is a leading source for news and in-depth technical information about advanced manufacturing

Advanced Manufacturing Media is a leading source for news and in-depth technical information about advanced manufacturing in North America. With greater laser power being used to weld sheet metal, tubes, copper and aluminum, operators must deliver that power with a precision that avoids defects. With great power comes great responsibility, the saying goes. And with greater laser power being used to weld sheet metal, tubes, copper and aluminum, operators have a greater responsibility to deliver that power with a precision that avoids defects. For instance, Trumpf’s BrightLine Weld technology lets users of its TruDisk lasers apportion power to the inner and outer cores of a two-in-one fiber to produce the ideal join. And, multiple upgrades by IPG Photonics to its fiber laser portfolio refine welding through programmable adjustment of the output beam mode and monitoring technology that provides real-time feedback for crucial processing characteristics. Likewise, Miller Electric is employing multiple beam modes to optimize welding of coated steels, aluminum and dissimilar materials. Meantime, Prima Power Laserdyne is expanding its welding repertoire with continuous wave and quasi-c...

You see a lot of pneumatic actuators in industrial automation, and for good reason. They’re simple,

You see a lot of pneumatic actuators in industrial automation, and for good reason. They’re simple, powerful, reliable, and above all, cheap. Online sources and fluid-power suppliers carry a bewildering range of actuators, so why would anyone bother to make their own pneumatic cylinders? Because while the commercial stuff is cheap, it’s not PVC and plywood cheap. Granted, that’s not the only reason [Izzy Swan] gives for his DIY single-acting cylinder. For him it’s more about having the flexibility to make exactly what he needs in terms of size and shape. And given how ridiculously easy these cylinders are, you can make a ton of them for pennies. The cylinder itself is common Schedule 40 PVC pipe with plywood endcaps, all held together with threaded rod. [Izzy] cut the endcaps with a CNC router, but a band saw or jig saw would do as well. The piston is a plywood plug mounted to a long bolt; [Izzy] gambled a little by cutting the groove for the O-ring with a table saw, but no fingers were lost. The cylinder uses a cheap bungee as a return spring, but an internal compression spring would work too,. Adding a second air inlet to make the cylinder double-acting would be possible as we...

Friday’s top deals: cheap wireless chargers, angled USB-C cables, & more

This Qi-enabled fast wireless charging pad powers compatible devices at up to 10W, and using the code below will snag you the lowest price we’ve seen on nearly any wireless charger ever. Wireless charging has become significantly more common in the recent years, and if your phone supports it, you should be using it. The chargers have come down in price as the popularity rises, too, which basically eliminates any excuse you have to not buy one. This fast-charging option supports quick speeds on compatible devices, and has a slim design so it won’t take up much space. This is about the cheapest we’ve seen for any of these options, but you will need to buy your own wall adapter, as none comes with this one. An integrated intelligent chip and upgraded coil help enhance its foreign object detection to cut off power in case a piece of metal is placed on the charger accidentally, and there are protections against over-currents, over-voltages, and short-circuits too. In case it doesn’t work as described, POWERADD includes a warranty with its purchase. A 3-foot USB cable comes with the charger as well. Drinking responsibly doesn’t just mean knowing your limi...

More than 2.12 million Acura, Dodge, Jeep, Honda, Pontiac, and Toyota vehicles are being recalled for

More than 2.12 million Acura, Dodge, Jeep, Honda, Pontiac, and Toyota vehicles are being recalled for a defect that may cause airbags to deploy inadvertent… More than 2.12 million Acura, Dodge, Jeep, Honda, Pontiac, and Toyota vehicles are being recalled for a defect that may cause airbags to deploy inadvertently. The recalls will provide vehicle owners with a new remedy after the manufacturers’ original attempts to fix the defects proved ineffective in some vehicles. “Keeping the traveling public safe is our number one priority, and we expect the manufacturers to get this remedy right to prevent injury to drivers and their families,” said Transportation Secretary Anthony Foxx. The new recalls cover 2.12 million Acura MDX, Dodge Viper, Jeep Grand Cherokee and Liberty, Honda Odyssey, Pontiac Vibe, Toyota Corolla, Toyota Matrix and Toyota Avalon models made in the early 2000s. The vehicles were subject to earlier recalls to address a problem with an electronic component manufactured by TRW that caused some airbags to deploy inadvertently — that is, in the absence of a crash. The National Highway Traffic safety Administration (NHTSA) discovered through the monitoring o...

When you think of the glamour bodyparts to train in the gym, you often think first

When you think of the glamour bodyparts to train in the gym, you often think first of the so-called “mirror muscles.” These are the muscles that every guy loves to train, and the ones that you can always see easily—chest, arms, abs, and shoulders. But if you really want to that perfect superhero physique, you have to build a ripped and chiseled back, too. Specifically, you have to hit your lats, the wide, fan-shaped muscles that loom large along your back. The perfect physique doesn’t really come together without a muscular back that tapers in width from shoulders to waist. And that taper is really a product of lat development. Training your lats, however, feels boring to some and daunting to others, because sometimes, we think of pull-ups as our only option. But there are a host of exercises that can get the job done. Here are 10 moves that will really develop your lats. Make sure you’re hitting 2 or 3 of these moves at least once a week to round out your physique. In order to work your lats you have to understand them at least a little: They’re the large, triangle-shaped muscles on the back, creating a thick taper from shoulder to waist. The muscle inserts into the upper part...
