Met Office issues weather warning for Wales and says we could see snow

The Met Office has issued a yellow warning for much of south Wales on Wednesday amid concerns that heavy rain could turn to snow for many overnight. Downpours are expected to move through the region during the afternoon hours, affecting areas from St David’s to Tenby, Swansea and Cardiff. The rainy spells may be scattered initially before becoming more persistent around 5pm, when the weather warning officially comes into effect. It will then last through 11.59pm on Wednesday. In some locations, between 20 to 30mm of rain are forecast to fall within just a few hours, posing the risk of flooding and travel disruption. But as temperatures plummet to the single digits overnight, rain may transition to snow for some. Blank Medal Factory OEM/ODM Products According to the forecast: “Rain may also turn to snow over the higher routes in south Wales towards midnight, perhaps with a few centimetres accumulating.” Motorists should anticipate slippery roads in time for the Thursday morning commute and the possibility of slow travel.

Researchers transmit energy with laser in ‘historic’ power-beaming demonstration

It was the second day of a three-day-long tech demonstration at the David Taylor Model Basin at the Naval Surface Warfare Center in Bethesda, Maryland, where attendees had gathered to stand around in the dark to look at something they mostly couldn’t see. googletag.cmd.push(function() { googletag.display(‘div-gpt-ad-1449240174198-2′); }); It was a long-range, free-space power beaming system—the first of its kind. Attendees that day, May 23, could see the system itself—the two 13-foot-high towers, one a two-kilowatt laser transmitter, the other a receiver of specially designed photovoltaics. But the important part, the laser that was beaming 400 watts of power across 325 meters, from the transmitter to the receiver, was invisible to the naked eye. On one end of the of the testing facility—one of the largest test facilities for model ships in the world—the receiver was converting the laser energy to DC power, which an inverter was turning into AC power to run lights, several laptops, and a coffeemaker that the organizers were using to make coffee for the attendees, or “laser lattes.” As more than one person there had noted, it wasn’t exactly an ...

The Trine Tuxen Jewelry x LuisaViaRoma Italian Dinner Collection Will Make You Crave Ravioli

Carb lovers, this one is for you. The Trine Tuxen Jewelry x LuisaViaRoma Italian Dinner collection has accessories that are inspired by pasta dishes. Never has wearing spaghetti looked so chic. Trine Tuxen is an indie Danish brand based in Copenhagen. The entire brand keeps its roots in Nordic Minimalism, so you won’t see over-the-top or splashy pieces in its collections. Which means the Italian Dinner line is more delicate and subtle, and will not look like the macaroni necklaces you would make for your mom at camp. LuisaViaRoma is a luxury retailer in Europe that has been around since the late 1800s, and the two joined forces to create a quirky and unexpected line. The small capsule collection is inspired by Italian cuisine and has three playful pieces. The first one is the Farfalle Hair Clip, which is a modern interpretation of farfalle pasta — or the bow tie pasta. While normally wearing pasta in your hair would be an embarrassing moment if you were out at a restaurant or in shooting range of a toddler, this hair clip is quite chic. The ruffled pasta barrette is made out of brass, but plated in 14k gold. This means you won’t have your hair accessory rusting on yo...

These College Sweethearts Rented a Vintage Rolls-Royce for Their Washington Wedding

Evelyn, a financial analyst, and Sam, a software engineer, met in college in August 2011, during freshman orientation. A mutual friend introduced them and they started dating during the first week of school—and have been together ever since. Five years later, in honor of their anniversary, the couple decided to elope in Seattle. Another five years after their elopement, Evelyn and Sam made a public declaration of their commitment to each other with an intimate ceremony and reception attended by just 28 guests that took place on July 19, 2019. They celebrated the nuptials at the Lairmont Manor in Bellingham, Washington, and exchanged vows in front of a bubbling fountain, surrounded by lush, fragrant flowers. Post-service, the duo celebrated with private golden hour portraits and a party to remember (complete with the groom’s all-time favorite cake!). The classy and curated wedding came together smoothly, says the bride, thanks to the couples’ month-of coordinator and florist. Their overarching goal? They made it a point to prioritize their family and friends on their big day by streamlining the process, which involved making the ceremony short and sweet and skipping b...

Iran Calls to Turn the Events of “International Quds Day” on May 31, 2019, into a Show of Defiance Against President Trump’s “Deal of the Century” – The Meir Amit Intelligence and Terrorism Information Center Iran Calls to Turn the Events of “International Quds Day” on May 31, 2019, into a

Iran, which is facing increasing pressured from the United States, wishes to turn “International Quds Day”, set to take place this Friday, May 31, 2019, to a show of opposition to the peace plan of President Trump, known as the “deal of the century.” On the eve of Quds Day, Ramazan Sharif, the Spokesman of the Iranian Revolutionary Guards Corps (IRGC), declared that the slogan used for Quds Day rallies this year will be “the defeat of the Deal of the Century and stabilization of the Palestinian Question.” He lambasted the “deal of the century” and warned that its purpose is to eliminate Palestine. He added that the Palestinians have moved from using rocks to using rockets, emphasizing that the new generation of Palestinians is more committed than its predecessors to the struggle against Israel. The invitation to participate in the “March of Return,” held on May 31, 2019, under the slogan “International Quds Day.” The banner also reads “No to the deal of the century” and the hashtag #toward_Jerusalem (The Facebook page of the Supreme National Committee of the Marches of Return) The escalation between Iran and the United States and its regional allies, in parallel to the Trump ad...

Is the eye massager the latest must-have beauty gadget?

Forget screen breaks to relieve tired eyes, it’s the Taiwanese trend for eye massage machines that we should be looking out for. According to an article by the Wall Street Journal the latest beauty gadget to be sweeping, or at least soothing, the beauty world if the Asian market is anything to go by (and it usually is) is the eye massage machine. Think of it as a hands-free mask which gently massages the delicate eye area to relieve tired and sore eyes. “We’ve been selling eye massagers for years with steady sales, but this year there has been a noticeable jump in demand, with sales up 30 per cent (in the first half of the year from a year earlier),” Sun Shao-qu, sales manager in Taiwan for OSIM International Ltd told the Wall Street Journal. “We believe it is because more people have tired eyes from looking at screens all day.” This beauty gizmo blends two big trends at once: not only does it talk to a world in possession of an eye-boggling obsession with smart phones and computers, it also tends to a new love of mobile beauty devices. So will it be big news in the UK? Thalgo , the makers of a brand new Eye Massage Mask, certainly think so. A...

iFi pitches the xDSD primarily as a mobile DAC with an onboard headphone amplifier, its 2200mAH

iFi pitches the xDSD primarily as a mobile DAC with an onboard headphone amplifier, its 2200mAH rechargeable battery sufficient for up to 8 hours’ playtime. The line-out mode also makes it suitable for connection to the pre-amplifier section of a loudspeaker system, bypassing the unit’s volume control but also the xBass and 3D ‘tone controls’ – useful with headphones, less so with loudspeakers. A healthy 2.1V output seals the deal. So — is this £399 / $399 / €448 xDSD DAC a true multi-tasker? Only if it distinguishes itself in both mobile and home roles and in a product segment not exactly short on alternatives. Even iFi’s own £299 xCan runs close to the xDSD’s utility: a headphone amplifier with a (Bluetooth) DAC on board. What is it? A flexible little beast, the xDSD includes three inputs. On USB we note a male type-A connector recessed into the body of the xDSD – unusual but the robust connection is reassuring. Here file support climbs to PCM 384kHz (and MQA) and DSD256. An alternative firmware jettisons MQA but extends file support to 768kHz and DSD512. I stuck with stock. The 3.5mm socket covers both coax and optical input duties, albeit with a 24bit/192kHz PCM ceiling and ...

Fan failures: five typical problems and what causes them

Centrifugal fans and fan systems used in industrial HVAC applications can fail in many ways. To fix failures it’s useful to know what causes them. Engineering manager Marcel Kamutzki from fan and blower manufacturer Daltec Canadian Buffalo Manufacturing Ltd. in Guelph, Ont. detailed five malfunctions and their symptoms during a workshop for maintenance pros in Hamilton. 1. Fan is too noisy. When an impeller hits the inlet or housing, it’s likely not centred; the inlet or housing is damaged; the impeller is crooked or damaged; there’s a loose shaft or loose bearing; a shaft is bent; or there’s a misaligned shaft and bearing. If the impeller is hitting the cut-off, the cut-off is not secure in the housing, it’s improperly positioned, or it’s damaged. There are numerous causes if the problem is the belt drive: the sheave is not tight on the shaft; the belts are hitting the belt tube; belts are too loose or too tight; belts have the wrong cross section; belts are not matched in length on multi-belt drives; variable pitch sheaves are not adjusted so each groove has the same pitch diameter; the sheaves are misaligned or the belts are worn; the motor anchoring, base or fan is not secur...
