The Best Beverage Coolers for Guys Who Take Refreshment Seriously

Be it a frothy beer, a can of your favorite soda, or just an ice-cold bottle of plain old water, there are few things in life as simply satisfying as cracking open and gulping down a crisp, chilled beverage when you’re thirsty. If this is one of those little pleasures that you enjoy on a daily basis, then a dedicated beverage cooler is one of the best things you can add to your kitchen or home bar – especially if you find yourself going through a lot of cans or bottles of your favorite drinks. A beverage cooler, also commonly known as a beverage center, is basically a beefy mini-fridge that’s designed solely for chilling drinks. What set a beverage center apart from a basic refrigerator are design touches like stainless steel construction, glass doors, and LED lighting, plus more powerful refrigeration capabilities (usually some sort of compression system similar to what you’d find in a full-size refrigerator) with precise degree adjustments within specific temperature ranges. Many people also opt to install a beverage cooler under a kitchen or bar counter, so these refrigerators are typically built more like heavy-duty home appliances than your standard dorm room mini-f...

What is Die Casting? Development, Processes and Materials in Die Casting

What is die casting and how has been progressing since the 19th century? This and many other basics such as the use of different processes and materials are explained in the following article. Die casting is one of the most economical and quickest forming processes. The advantages of this production process are that hundreds of thousands of castings can be produced relatively quickly by using just one mold. All components produced have a uniform quality and involve relatively low unit costs. But how exactly does the manufacturing process look like? What materials can be used and in what areas are the castings used? Die casting is an automated casting process in which the liquid melt is pressed into a mold under high pressure (150 to 1200 bar) and at a high filling speed (up to 540 km/h). Usually alloys with a low melting point are used. This casting process is particularly suitable for series and mass production of components because, unlike sand casting, for example, permanent metal molds are used which do not have to be destroyed after casting. It is possible to produce large and complex components with low wall thicknesses. The die casting molds, made of high-quality, heat-re...

Philips launches affordable 242B9T 24-inch 1080p touch screen monitor

Having a touch screen can be great on a laptop — especially on convertible models that transform into a tablet. On a desktop, however, not so much. Don’t get me wrong, there are plenty of applications where a touch screen monitor makes sense — particularly in business and education. But home consumers won’t necessarily see value in one. Today, Philips launches a new 24-inch 1080p touch screen monitor that is surprisingly affordable. Called “242B9T,” it has plenty of ports, including VGA, DVI, HDMI, and DisplayPort. The touch aspect requires a USB connection, which doubles as connectivity for the integrated 2-port USB hub. It is built to be rugged, with IP54 water and dust resistance, plus there are built-in speakers too. Best of all, the stand is adjustable, making it quite versatile. 1024*600 Lcd Display “The monitor uses projected capacitive 10-point touch technology for natural, fluid touch responsiveness. The anti-glare touch screen monitor offers simple and intuitive use across all touch-based applications. Whether you’re collaborating with colleagues at work, or learning through interactive games with friends at school, the Smooth...

Let’s Talk Lumens: A Q&A with Bruce McMath of the Arkansas Natural Sky Association

When it comes to outer space, count me among the ranks of the laity. I doubt I could explain celestial light refraction to you with any finesse, and I probably couldn’t pick out Sirius or Betelgeuse from a police lineup. I’ve embarked on a road trip designed to stop in the “totality zone” of the 2017 solar eclipse, though, and I’ve checked out a telescope from CALS to peer at the Perseids meteor shower. And I never get tired of the way it feels when a friend comes to visit Arkansas from a big city, awestruck and slack-jawed when they catch a glimpse of the night sky from rural Garland County, or from a bank along the serpentine curves of the Buffalo River.  The thing is, though, those places are getting harder and harder to find in Arkansas. As subdivisions and Dollar Generals and golf courses sprawl and subsume more and more acreage, they bring tons of light along with them, resulting in a bigger “sky-glow” imprint across the state. We talked about that imprint with Bruce McMath, the chair of the Arkansas Natural Sky Association. McMath, along with a small but dedicated team of volunteers, operates the nonprofit organization with an eye toward protecting what’s left of The Natu...
