Chinese Theme Park Under Fire for Forcing a Pig to Go Bungee Jumping

Meixin Red Wine Town theme park in Chongqing, China, ushered in the Chinese New Year in a very unusual, very problematic way by tying up and throwing a pig off a 68-metre-high bungee-jumping platform. In a now-viral video, spectators can be heard laughing as the pig, dressed in a blue cape, squealed in fear while it was pushed off the platform. The stunt was meant to celebrate the end of the Year of the Pig and usher in the Year of the Rat, which starts on Chinese New Year (Saturday, January 25). It has now sharply divided the Chinese community online. Many netizens lashed out against the theme park for animal abuse, calling the act “sick” and “perverted.” “Where are the pig-lovers, abusing a pig like that, and then sending it to the slaughterhouse, is there any humanity left?” one Weibo user asked. However, some argued that there was no harm in using the bungee-jumping pig as entertainment, since it was to be slaughtered anyway. Others even lauded the publicity stunt, coming up with creative slogans for the theme park such as “even a pig dares to bungee jump, what about you?” “This publicity stunt is impressive. I have even prepared slogans for you… the bungee jump can be intr...

When it comes to sleep, you’re always worrying about your little one. From the time you take your baby home from the hospital, you keep track of their sleeping and eating cycles. You’re filled with information about how to not let them sleep on their bellies or keep pillows or extra blankets in the crib.  The American Academy of Pediatrics recommends that parents keep blankets, toys, and other objects out of the crib for the first 12 months to limit the risk of suffocation and of Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS). Many parents decide to buy sleep sacks in lieu of blankets to keep their newborns warm and safe. Sleep sacks are basically zippered cloth sacks with armholes. You don’t have to worry about extra material blocking breathing or your baby becoming uncovered at night. Sleep sacks come in a variety of materials and sizes. When I first started using them, I felt overwhelmed by the choices. Plus, you’ll need different weights or Thermal Overall Grades (TOG), depending o...

Turn EV Charging into a New User Experience, Not a Chore

This site is operated by a business or businesses owned by Informa PLC and all copyright resides with them. Informa PLC’s registered office is 5 Howick Place, London SW1P 1WG. Registered in England and Wales. Number 8860726. Lack of a recharging infrastructure that’s equivalent to gas stations is one of the biggest roadblocks to faster adoption of electric vehicles. Or is it? Putting recharging stations on every block and every few miles of expressway is indeed a complicated and hugely expensive proposition. But the question no one is asking is: “Why are we trying to imitate gas stations?” Nobody enjoys going to a gas station. It’s a chore, especially in bad weather. The only good thing about it is it doesn’t take long (if it isn’t crowded) and the typical driver only must go there once a week. The new EV model calls for fast-charging stations that are expensive and take 20 minutes for a partial charge. There is the potential for long lines during peak periods. Why are we pouring billions into an all-new fast-charging infrastructure that promises to deliver a worse user experience than the not-so-great infrastructure it is making obsolete? The idea of replenish...

We live in a golden age of free Electronic Design Automation (EDA) tools. It wasn’t that

We live in a golden age of free Electronic Design Automation (EDA) tools. It wasn’t that long ago that an engineering workstation was an expensive piece of hardware running very expensive software that typically had annual fees. Now, you can go to your local electronics store and buy a PC that would shame that old workstation and download plenty of software to design schematics, simulate circuits, program devices, and lay out PCBs. The only problem with a lot of this free software is it runs on Windows. I do sometimes run Windows, but I most often use Linux, so there is a certain attractiveness to a new breed of tools that run in the Web browser. In particular, I wanted to look briefly at two Web-based EDA tools: EasyEDA and MeowCAD. Both offer similar features: draw a schematic, populate a PCB, and download manufacturing files (that is, Gerber files). EasyEDA also offers SPICE simulation. There’s a lot of advantages: the software is always up to date. You can use it just about anywhere and have access to your files. Of course, there are some cons too: Many people don’t trust their designs in the hands of some alien server. There’s also the problem of what happens if the Web-bas...

Sali Hughes’s 40 best sustainable beauty brands | Fashion

From packaging to ingredients, the Guardian’s beauty editor picks the top brands doing their bit for the planet What follows is an imperfect list, a subjective selection of great quality beauty brands trying to do better for the good of the planet. They are not all doing everything; some are better than others and they could always be doing more. But as industry experts at a recent sustainability conference told me, again and again: we don’t have time to wait for perfect, or for people to reject all the conveniences of modern life. It is more important to do something now than nothing at all, to our later cost. I take the view that big change comes from big business, which is why I’ve included global megabrands where there is at least the will and potential for improvement. What constitutes improvement is another bone of contention, of course. Some believe 100% organic, non-GM products are the only way to go; others rightly point out that some crops can be grown organically only thousands of air miles away. Many of us look for recycled plastic (living only about three lives), others prefer infinitely recyclable (but much heavier to freight) glass. This lineup is more expensive t...

Yummly Smart Thermometer Wants to Help You Cook Dinner

The Yummly Smart Thermometer will be available in early 2020 for $129; later in the year, it will integrate with select smart ovens from Whirlpool, which acquired Yummly in 2017. LAS VEGAS—Worried about burning your dinner? Yummly’s new smart thermometer will keep tabs on your culinary creations and integrate with Whirlpool ovens later this year for even more control. The appropriately named Yummly Smart Thermometer has two sensors: one to measure the temperature of your food, which can be tracked using a companion iOS and Android app, and another to measure the heat in the oven via a dock, placed next to the oven, with a range of 150 feet. The dock is also used to charge the probe, and communicates between it and the Yummly app on your smartphone or tablet via Bluetooth. Should you open the oven door, or change the temperature, the app will automatically calculate any difference it’s had on the food and adjust accordingly. The oven will also be aware of how far through a recipe the user is, and can adjust the temperature up and down to cook meats in a number of ways, including roasting and broiling. The Yummly Smart Thermometer will be available in early 2020 for $1...

Glycolysis, Glutaminolysis, and Fatty Acid Synthesis Are Required for Distinct Stages of Kaposi’s Sarcoma-Associated Herpesvirus Lytic Replication

Kaposi’s sarcoma-associated herpesvirus (KSHV) is the etiologic agent of Kaposi’s sarcoma (KS). KSHV infection induces and requires multiple metabolic pathways, including the glycolysis, glutaminolysis, and fatty acid synthesis (FAS) pathways, for the survival of latently infected endothelial cells. To determine the metabolic requirements for productive KSHV infection, we induced lytic replication in the presence of inhibitors of different metabolic pathways. We found that glycolysis, glutaminolysis, and FAS are all required for maximal KSHV virus production and that these pathways appear to participate in virus production at different stages of the viral life cycle. Glycolysis and glutaminolysis, but not FAS, inhibit viral genome replication and, interestingly, are required for different early steps of lytic gene expression. Glycolysis is necessary for early gene transcription, while glutaminolysis is necessary for early gene translation but not transcription. Inhibition of FAS resulted in decreased production of extracellular virions but did not reduce intracellular genome levels or block intracellular virion production. However, in the presence of FAS inhibitors, ...

Blinded by the light? 8 Investigates examines safety of LED headlights

New LED headlight technology is helping drivers see better while driving at night, but they’re also drawing complaints from drivers who say they’ve been blinded by them. “When I’m driving at night and cars come at me, I can tell the LEDs are a lot brighter in my eyes,” driver Carol Noble said. Are the LED light bulbs to blame? 8 Investigates examined the technology and what’s safest for drivers. The LED headlights are designed to light up a larger area for drivers compared to older halogen headlights. “They’re a whiter light, so I do think they provide better vision for folks when they’re driving when it’s dark. I think they can see a lot better,” Saco police Chief Jack Clements said. Experts said the problem is that some car owners are using replacement LED bulbs that are not manufactured for their vehicles. “After-market products can be problematic if not installed properly,” Pat Moody, of AAA Northern New England, said. “I don’t know that they’re setting the height of the headlights the correct distance, and I’m not sure that they’re setting them up properly,” Cl...
