Basking Ridge Challenged To Recycle 500 Pounds Of Plastic Bags

BASKING RIDGE, NJ — Basking Ridge residents are being challenged to recycle 500 pounds of thin film plastic garbage within six months so that the township can get a high-performance park bench made of recycled plastic from Trex. The Trex Challenge is being hosted the Bernards Township Environmental Commission and Basking Ridge Business Alliance (BRBA) and will run through April 14, 2020. Trex, a company that specializes in composite decking, furniture and other eco-friendly products, aggregates the thin film plastics collected and repurposes them to create outdoor benches. “Thin film plastics” are everyday items: Grocery bags and produce bags; case overwrap, pallet wrap and stretch film; dry cleaning bags, newspaper sleeves, ice bags, wood pellet bags, bubble wrap and air pillow (think Amazon shipping), empty and clean cereal bags and bread bags. Joan Bannan Harris, Township Committee Liaison to the Environmental Commission stated, “We’re excited about this recycling challenge. According to Trex, 500 pounds collected is equal to about 38,000 plastic bags. By participating in this planet-friendly challenge, Bernards’ residents are helping to protect...

There’s not much to do in Morton, Mississippi, population 3,630. There’s a city park with playground

There’s not much to do in Morton, Mississippi, population 3,630. There’s a city park with playground equipment and sports fields, deserted in the Saturday morning heat. There’s a state park pool, populated by local white teenagers and tourists from nearby counties. There are about five Hispanic markets, a few Mexican restaurants, a handful of other restaurants, a downtown strip, and a pharmacy that doubles as an ice cream shop. And there are chicken plants. The biggest employer in town is Koch Foods. Koch operates a slaughter plant (which makes downtown smell like a dumpster), as well as a packing facility (which has a more pleasant McNuggets-esque odor), an outlet store, a hatchery, a feed mill, and in neighboring Forest, a deboning plant. Morton’s poultry industry became infamous on August 7, when U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agents raided seven chicken plants in six Mississippi cities, arresting 680 workers. These arrests included 300 workers in Morton’s Koch facilities and a smaller chicken plant called PH Food. It was the first day of school, and many students were left waiting for parents who never picked them up. Terrified ...

We did this quick 10-minute bodyweight core workout as a warmup before a recent cardio-focused CrossFit

We did this quick 10-minute bodyweight core workout as a warmup before a recent cardio-focused CrossFit class, and it totally fired up my abs and arms. Level 1 CrossFit Coach Sefton Hirsch with Champlain Valley CrossFit said, “It’s a great way to get your body warmed up with low impact, and focuses on all the core muscles.” Sefton added, “These movements are great for people who work at a desk, helping to strengthen the core that becomes weak from sitting in a chair.” Although there are just five moves in this 10-minute workout, you hold them for 60 seconds, so it’s challenging both physically and mentally. Why 60 seconds? Sefton explained that 60 seconds offers a good amount of time to really get the blood moving. If it’s too hard (and 60 seconds is hard for many people, especially beginners), he said to take a quick break and then get back into the hold. I’ve been doing this 10-minute core workout at home a couple times a week and love that it’s quick and effective. Having a strong core has not only helped me prevent injury when in CrossFit, but it’s also helped me feel more powerful when running and more stable when...

By now, the “snackification” of America is well chronicled. Three square meals a day have given

By now, the “snackification” of America is well chronicled. Three square meals a day have given rise to more but smaller eating occasions. Even when they haven’t, Americans feel they have a right to snack in between. And the rest of the world is following suit. As a result, the big food companies – and not just the big snack companies – are paying a lot of attention to this growing, broadening category. Campbell Soup in 2017 bought Snyder’s-Lance. That same year, Hershey acquired Amplify Brands (www.amplifysnackbrands.com), maker of SkinnyPop. Kellogg long ago snagged Pringles. Mondelez was spun off from Kraft in 2012 as a pure-play snack company. “Snack” can mean almost anything short of a full meal, but the core remains salty snacks. Potato chips still reign, accounting for 25 percent of all sales, according to Market Research Reports (www.marketresearchreports.com), followed by corn and tortilla chips at 20 percent and roasted nuts and seeds accounting for another 20 percent. In addition to those, SNAC International, formerly the Snack Food Association, includes such categories as: pretzels, popcorn, crackers, cookies, bars, pork rinds, cor...

Sanders raises $25.3M in 3rd quarter, but Trump swamps all

WASHINGTON (AP) — Bernie Sanders raked in $25.3 million over the past three months, putting him on top of the Democratic presidential fundraising field for now. But in a sign of what he and his rivals are up against, President Donald Trump and his allies raised $125 million. Other leading Democrats, including former Vice President Joe Biden and Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren, have yet to reveal their fundraising figures for the third quarter. But the staggering sum on the Republican side, which was split between the Trump campaign and the Republican National Committee, highlights the cash gulf between Democrats and the GOP. It could revive anxieties among Democrats that a protracted primary featuring nearly 20 candidates could be counterproductive while Trump builds a massive cash advantage that can be used against the ultimate nominee. “This is a (ton) of money,” Bakari Sellers, a top surrogate for California Sen. Kamala Harris, tweeted in reference to Trump’s fundraising. Although activists who contribute small amounts online have been widely celebrated, he said that won’t stand up to the Trump operation. “Small dollar donations alone ain&#...

Ultrasonic Wondercutter Device Could Be Used to Cut Away Supports and Finish 3D Printed Parts

Unless you’re dealing with mainly small, handheld items, 3D printed parts rarely look much like their final form while still sitting on the build platform. In order to achieve functional 3D prints that look as good as they’re supposed to work, you have to take the time required for finishing and post-processing these said prints. From smoothing down and removing excess material to dissolving or breaking off supports, post-processing and finishing are both necessary evils when it comes to 3D printed parts. Multiple companies in the 3D printing industry are working on ways to make post-processing faster, with ideas such as easy, high-speed support removal and using ultrasonic technology. This last is the path a company headquartered in Incheon, Korea, called Cutra Co., Ltd., took for its innovative Wondercutter product – an ultrasonic cutter. At last year’s formnext show in Germany, Cutra first showcased its Wondercutter, which was originally conceptualized three years ago. In February of 2016, the company created its first Wondercutter prototype, with the second iteration completed that summer. Not long before Cutra launched its crowdfunding campaigns for the final Wondercutter p...

Rapid Tooling for Production Parts: Lower Cost, Faster Time to Market > ENGINEERING.com

YPE html PUBLIC “-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN” “http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-transitional.dtd”> Tools and molds are the backbone of the manufacturing industry. Cutting the tools for a production run can be among the most expensive costs associated with production. Even before mass production and prior to the advent of rapid prototyping technologies such as 3D printing, building a functional prototype was costly and time-consuming, putting it out of reach for many entrepreneurs and small to medium enterprises. However, rapid tooling is quickly becoming a cost-effective and lean option for prototyping, and short-run or low-volume production. To learn more about how rapid tooling can save manufacturers money, engineering.com recently spoke with Raymond Cheng, founder of WayKen, a rapid prototype manufacturing service based in the manufacturing super-mecca, Shenzhen, China. “With today’s product lifecycles shortening, product developers must move from design to manufacturing to lean production oriented short-run or low-volume production solutions. Rapid tooling is an extremely effective way to achieve results,” advised Cheng. Depending...

Inventor Benjamin Franklin once said house guests are like fish: they start to stink after three

Inventor Benjamin Franklin once said house guests are like fish: they start to stink after three days. You may agree, but with  holidays like Christmas and Hanukkah on the horizon, you may soon be opening your home to out-of-town guests. If your guestroom has become your home’s catchall or serves double duty as an office, gym or hobby room, now’s the time to make sure it’s functional and comfortable. Who better to offer advice than someone whose business is all about making sure guests feel welcome? “Firstly, the room has to be spotlessly clean,” says Guy Laporte, co-owner of Craigleith Manor Bed & Breakfast in Collingwood. “Nobody wants to be a guest in a room that has dust balls under the bed. If there’s an en suite bathroom, that en suite has to be spotlessly clean as well.” Clear the clutter. “Think about personal belongings that are in that room that aren’t of any interest to anybody but you,” says Laporte, pointing to doll collections as but one example. Remove anything that’s collecting dust or taking up space. If the room has become a catchall, put things back where they belong. Take stock of the bed linens. “Are the pillows comfortable? Is anything worn out and need...

Corning has launched Corning® MicroDEN, an automated perfusion cell culture system that provides a process for the differentiation of monocytes into dendritic cells.The Corning® MicroDEN system enables the wide use of dendritic cells in cell and gene therapy for basic and applied research in immunology and immune-oncology. Developed by Flaskworks, the Corning MicroDEN system is now available from Corning.The rise of personalized immunotherapies has increased demand for dendritic cells. However, the current process for generating these cells is cumbersome, error-prone, and time intensive. Dendritic cells are key elements in immunology and immunotherapy research in oncology and infectious diseases as well as autoimmune diseases and transplant rejection. The Corning MicroDEN system streamlines the process by minimizing the manual steps, resulting in more consistent yields, a reduced risk of contamination, and more efficient therapy research.The Corning MicroDEN system is composed of the MicroDEN unit manufactured by Flaskworks, and closed-system consumables manufactured by Corning, such as tissue culture-treated polystyrene flasks, storage bottles, and tubing.  Corning has announce...
