You’ve spent months on real estate websites and toured dozens of properties. You’ve finally found the right house in the right location for the right price… You’ve spent months on real estate websites and toured dozens of properties. You’ve finally found the right house in the right location for the right price and your offer has been accepted. Now you have to select the method to finance your purchase, and for most first-time buyers there are two main options – an FHA or a conventional mortgage. An FHA loan is guaranteed by the Federal Housing Administration, part of the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD). If you qualify for an FHA mortgage, the U.S. government guarantees to the lender that the loan will be repaid. The loan has some advantages and disadvantages for the borrower. The first is that it is easier to qualify for an FHA loan than it is a conventional mortgage. Because it is a program to encourage homeownership, and the government stands behind the loan, a borrower may qualify with less than perfect credit. While overall lending requirements are much tighter in the wake of the housing crash, FHA requirements are a bit less ...

This young artist pursues both passion and profit by painting on bags

MANILA — Choosing between the desire to pursue their passion and the need for a stable well-paying job is perhaps every millenial’s dilemma. Let’s face it, for the generation known for jumping from one job to another, having both remains to be a distant dream.  Ira Balmes, founder and sole artist of Martini, an online shop that specializes in customized handpainted bags, however, is one of the lucky few able to turn that dream into reality. The innovative entrepreneur was able to capitalize on her talent by using stylish bags as her canvas and painting on them what folks across generations deem priceless — their pets.  “For the aspirants who are being clouded by the thought that the art industry is only profitable for the select few, I have to say, you only need to find value in your art and then make your art valuable,” Balmes declared.  While Balmes admitted she was inseperable to the paint brush since she was a child, the painter never imagined she could build a business with it. “I had no formal education in the arts but have always spared some weekends just painting my heart out… In hindsight, those weekends I would paint on r...

Sound levitation technology might one day replace laser surgery

Mechanical engineers have devised a clever technology that can levitate and move individuals particles using ultrasonic waves. Although the technology is still in its infancy, this powerful proof of concept suggests that it might one day be possible to perform surgery acoustically instead of using lasers which can destroy cells and healthy tissue. Acoustic levitation isn’t exactly new. Scientists have demonstrated it in various forms in labs across the world and you can find a lot of very entertaining videos on YouTube. What’s different about the new research is that scientists have now levitated and moved particles independently from one another for the very first time. Previously, acoustically levitated objects behaved in the same way. The team of researchers at Universidad Publica De Navarra in Spain and the University of Bristol in the UK have called their technology “Holographic Acoustic Tweezers” (HOT). The name plays on the wording of Holographic Optical Tweezers (HAT), an increasingly popular method for applying precisely controlled forces to microscopic object. The researchers hope that their method will one day replace HAT, whose main downside is that it can kill cell...

PB2 Foods Wins Another Race to Market: First Peanut Powder with Prebiotics and Probiotics

TIFTON, Ga., Aug. 22, 2019 /PRNewswire/ – In a first for the category, PB2 Foods has begun rolling out PB2 Peanut Powder with Prebiotics & Probiotics – bringing the trend of offering additional functional benefits in new formulas to the nut butter market. The new product is now available at Walmart locations nationwide and is expected to hit shelves in other retail locations beginning in September, when it also will be available on Amazon. “This item is completely unique within our category, because no one else in the food business has produced a peanut butter powder with prebiotics and probiotics,” explained Craig Entwistle, the chief executive officer of PB2 Foods. “We’re also introducing a no sugar added element as part of this product, and that is a big differentiator for us that we know will translate to sales.” PB2 with Pre + Probiotics contains 6 grams of plant-based protein per 13-gram serving, which amounts to about 2 tablespoons.  It also has just 60 calories and 1.5 grams of fat per serving, or roughly 90-percent less fat and nearly 70-percent fewer calories than traditional peanut butter.  The prebiotic found in PB2′s new...

The latest patch update, v10.20, is now live across Xbox One, PlayStation 4, PC, Nintendo Switch, and mobile that include the new Bubble Shield, map changes, and more. Fortnite’s tenth season of Battle Royale, Season X, has been moving along at a steady pace. Each week there is either a content or patch update that can include slight to significant changes to the game. August 27’s v10.20 update launched at 4 am ET/1 am PT/9 am BST, with players immediately hopping in to check out the update. Fans were previously alerted about the new Bubble Shield item on August 26 through Fortnite’s in-game news section. That item did arrive in Fortnite with the v10.20 update which acts as a barrier from explosives and projectiles. More information became available on August 26 thanks to the Rift Beacon changing locations to outside the Truck ‘N’ Oasis truck stop in the desert. The new item was briefly teased on August 26, and fans did not have to wait long to get their hands on the Bubble Shield. Last week players were introduced to the throwable Junk Rift item, and we suspect the Bubble Shield will be used to help counter them along with BRUTEs. The new item’s description reads: “This is a b...

How an Old School Jordanian Sweets Maker Made it to Walmart

A U.S.-bred entrepreneur is bringing gourmet Middle Eastern sweets from his Amman bakery to Walmart. The secret to his pastries’ price and snob appeal? Would you believe the cost of pistachios, the formerly ho-hum nut that Iranian embargoes have transformed into a delicacy filling foodies can’t live without. As a 23-year old marketing manager at Prudential Securities in Pittsburgh, Abdallah Zalatimo was dreaming of a hot-shot career building brands on Wall Street when a visit to Jordan for his sister’s wedding in 1985 sent him on a “One Thousand and One Nights”-style metamorphosis into promoting the ancient art of Arabian sweet-making. Zalatimo, a self-described “all-Ameican boy,” grew up in near Scranton, Pa., where his father––who’d been raised in Jerusalem––worked as a physician. Zalatimo’s dad and sister were now living in Jordan, and during the festivities, the Zalatimos held a family meeting to discuss an offer to buy the rights in Jordan to their ancestral business, a brand of artisanal sweets that had a single outpost, a tiny bakery in the old city of Jerusalem run as a one-man-show by Abdullah’s 80-year old gra...

The installation of electrical, gas, water or other services in the walls of a building is

The installation of electrical, gas, water or other services in the walls of a building is generally permitted by the Building Regulations 2010. However, removal of material from a wall for the installation of services can weaken the wall and may lead to structural movement of the wall and/or building. Therefore, the designer and installer of building services must take account of the requirement not to impair the stability of the walls where such services are to be installed within a wall. To reduce the risk of structural movement of a wall and/or building, chases in walls for the installation of services should not be positioned in such a way as to impair the stability of the wall. Furthermore, ADA recommends for particular walls that the dimensions of chases are restricted. The restrictions given in paragraph 2C30 of ADA are illustrated in Fig 1. They apply to walls constructed of masonry units, such as bricks or blocks, forming part of a residential building of up to three storeys, where such walls are parapet1 or extend to the full storey height and the walls are: The restrictions on dimensions of chases apply equally to parapet walls, external and internal load-bearing wal...

Best Backpack Coolers of 2019: 7 Brands Put to the Test

We reviewed the 2019 backpack coolers from YETI, OtterBox, Hydro Flask, and more to find out which is best. Read our take on ice retention, portability, and cooler features. In 2019, cooler brands big and small invested in developing backpack models. Cooler backpacks haul ice, beer, and food easily to the campsite, park, or hiking trail. But each cooler comes with advantages and disadvantages. In our test, we discovered ice retention isn’t everything. With cooler backpacks, key attributes were portability and comfort. When you load an entire backpack full of ice, water, and beer, it gets heavy quickly. Caveat: There wasn’t one clear winner in this review, and the brands aren’t listed in any particular order. But each cooler succeeded in certain areas. We’ve organized this review with modules detailing each product, noting where each excelled and lagged. The YETI Hopper BackFlip 24 is a rugged, well-built cooler with lash points on all sides. It sports one central zipper, YETI’s beefy HydroLok — which we’ve tested before, and it didn’t break or leak. And it makes the BackFlip waterproof. YETI’s DryHide shell is on the outside. It withstands abrasions well, didn’t rip in our field...

Stainless Steel Etching: A Faster Way to Manufacture Complex Precision Components

As a photo chemical etching specialist for over 50 years, Precision Micro has developed etchant chemistries and processes that make etching possible on a wide range of metals. Stainless steel, however, remains the number one choice for many of the company’s customers due to its versatility, the numerous grades available, and the vast array of finishes. Precision Micro’s stock steel grades include austenitic (300) and ferritic martensitic (400) series, mild steel, electrical steel, maraging steel, high-carbon (spring) steel, precipitation hardened (17-4, 17.7) steel, and duplex and super duplex steel, as well as specialist grades including Sandvik Chromflex strip steels and Uddeholmstrip flapper valve steel. Chemical etching produces precision components by selectively removing metal through a photo-resist mask. When compared with conventional sheet metalworking, it has a number of inherent advantages, key among which are its ability to produce parts without degrading material properties – no force or heat is used during processing – and almost limitless part complexity as component features are removed simultaneously using etchant chemistries. The tooling for etching is d...
