Opinion | ‘Boomer Bashing’ by the Millennials? Why you ungrateful little punks!

Leave it to the Millennials – with 40 active wars currently being waged around the world, they decided to start one more: “The War Against the Aged.” All of a sudden these self-absorbed children of the selfie’ born between 1981 and 1996 are publicly accusing us, the babies born into the post-war economic boom of being solely responsible for the mess this world is in. Seriously, have these screen-addicted, mirror-loving, job-hopping, pseudo intellectuals forgotten what we, The Boomers, have contributed to their world? We gave them Elvis and the Beatles, the 1972 Summit Series, seatbelts and the pill, a 40-hour-work week and national healthcare, recreational drugs and the Pocket Fisherman. We gave them the transistor radio, Gilligan’s Island, and the Ed Sullivan Show. (To understand why every generation hates the previous one, Google: “Ed Sullivan won’t allow teenagers watch Elvis shake his pelvis.”) Forty years old today, we gave them Happy Meals for goodness sake and a drive-thru so they could pick up their food without putting down their phones. Even Millennials, “The Trophy Kids” who were rewarded for just showing up, cannot deny that on a personal level we provided the cream ...

This is the text of a speech delivered by Ian Bremmer on November 18 at the

This is the text of a speech delivered by Ian Bremmer on November 18 at the 2019 GZERO Summit in Tokyo. China has made its decision. Beijing is building a separate system of Chinese technology—its own standards, infrastructure, and supply chains—to compete with the West. Make no mistake: this is the single most consequential geopolitical decision taken in the last three decades. It’s also the greatest threat to globalization since the end of World War II. Globalization has lifted billions of people from poverty around the world. We now live longer, healthier, and more productive lives than ever before. We are better educated and better informed than at any time in history. There has never been a better place and a better time to be alive than right here, right now. Why are citizens in country after country bitterly casting aside both governing and opposition parties in favor of political disruptors? Because this IS a moment of transformation, and uncertainty. In much of the world, the lightning-fast, cross-border flows of ideas, information, people, money, goods and services—the same forces that have created so much opportunity and prosperity—also generate fear. Fear that the wo...

New Jersey architect Douglas Batterby wrote in response to recent discussions about insulating masonry buildings. He reminds us that a home’s floor system helps masonry walls resist soil pressure. Tyler from Williamsburg, Va. wants to know how a WRB can resist water, but still allow drying. Ryan from Michigan asks how to insulate a brick-veneer house with fiberboard sheathing. Spenser in Ontario wants to know if he can build his own French patio door and Dave asks about airsealing the gap where the wall sheathing meets the foundation. Dave from Charlottesville writes, FHB team – I’m no expert, but we’ve got three rainbarrels behind our carport (two purchased 65 gal barrels, plus a 50 gal former pickle barrel that fell off a truck near my house). Here’s a tip for Matt so he gets better volume from his setup: use a quarter-turn ball-valve spigot like RAINPAL RBS005 Brass Water...

Physicists use nanostructures to free photons for highly efficient white OLEDs — ScienceDaily

Since light-emitting diodes only produce monochrome light, manufacturers use various additive colour-mixing processes to produce white light. Since the first development of white OLEDs in the 1990s, numerous efforts have been made to achieve a balanced white spectrum and high luminous efficacy at a practical luminance level. However, the external quantum efficiency (EQE) for white OLEDs without additional outcoupling techniques can only reach 20 to 40 percent today. About 20 percent of the generated light particles (photons) remain trapped in the glass layer of the device. The reason for this is the total internal reflection of the particles at the interface between glass and air. Further photons are waveguided in the organic layers, while others get ultimately lost at the interface to the top metal electrode. Numerous approaches have been investigated to extract the trapped photons from OLEDs. An international research team led by Dr. Simone Lenk and Prof. Sebastian Reineke from the TU Dresden has now presented a new method for freeing the light particles in the journal Nature Communications. The physicists introduce a facile, scalable and especially lithography-free method fo...

When hanging drywall, you could measure, mark, and cut holes for all of your electrical boxes before you

When hanging drywall, you could measure, mark, and cut holes for all of your electrical boxes before you install each sheet, but it’s more efficient to cut them out with a drywall router once the sheets are up on the wall. Note: Routing counter-clockwise against the perimeter of a box takes advantage of the the bit’s rotation to help maintain contact with the box, giving you more control over the tool, and resulting in a cleaner cut. When routing against interior perimeters, such as window and door openings, follow the same procedure but reverse the direction. Routing clockwise on an interior cut gives the same result as routing counter-clockwise on an exterior cut; it leaves a clean, straight edge, flush with the opening.

The act of gardening tends to involve lot of digging and poking and clambering around in

The act of gardening tends to involve lot of digging and poking and clambering around in soil, usually concerning the removal of weeds or pesky slugs. It’s often best to be as close to the action as possible, which means that on many occasions you’ll be required to conduct your garden tasks on all fours. Poor old knee joints don’t take too kindly to this kind of punishment, especially if the ground on which you are working is uneven, wet or stony, and nothing hurts quite as much as kneeling on a sharp pebble (wayward fork mishaps withstanding). For comfortable, low-level gardening (not to mention protecting your trousers from earthy stains) it’s a kneeler you need, and we’ve been testing the best, including both standalone kneelers and strap-on kneepads. To please our knees we were looking for kneelers that provided good protection, were durable and that scrubbed up nicely after a hard day toiling amongst the soil. You can trust our independent reviews. We may earn commission from some of the retailers, but we never allow this to influence selections, which are formed from real-world testing and expert advice.

Swinging along with Roomful of Blues | Herald Community Newspapers

The acclaimed band swings their way to Long Island for a jumpin’’ evening that showcases their larger-than-life vocal and instrumental power. Even though Roomful of Blues’ lineup has changed over the years, the band has always been one of the tightest, most joyful blues ensembles around. Currently an eight-piece unit led by guitarist Chris Vachon, the band has never sounded fresher or stronger. In 2010, singer Phil Pemberton took over the vocal duties, bringing his sweet and soulful vocals and adding another bright new dimension to the band’s jazzy, jump-blues musical roots. Along with Vachon, Rich Lataille on tenor and alto sax, and Pemberton, the band also includes tenor and baritone saxophonist Alek Razdan, trumpeter Carl “Geerz” Gerhard, bassist John Turner, drummer Chris Anzalone and keyboardist Rusty Scott. Lataille’s masterful playing can evoke either the fat-toned honking sax of the glory days of early rock or the cool elegance of big band swing jazz. Their winning combination of jump, swing, blues, R&B and soul remains their calling card, as does their ability to fill the dance floor. Roomful keeps on rockin’ and doesn’t plan on letting up.

2020 Hyundai Creta exterior, interior, features, engines, dimensions and more

As the all-new Hyundai Creta will come to India next year, we take a close look at the ix25, its sibling for the Chinese market, to get a good idea of what is to come. The current-gen Creta has unquestionably been a blockbuster hit for Hyundai. Launched in 2015, the Korean brand had announced back in February this year that it had sold over 5 lakh units of the SUV in India. The Creta will see a full model change sometime early next year and, as reported by us earlier, it could be launched in our market sometime in February 2020. Hyundai sells the Creta in many quite a few countries – the SUV is known as Hyundai ix25 in Chinese and a few South American markets. The second-gen ix25 has already been unveiled in China and the next-gen Creta for India is expected to be based on the new ix25, just like the first-gen SUV. A new set of images have surfaced on the internet that give us a closer look at the second-gen ix25 (Creta). Here’s what to expect. As far as dimensions go, the new Hyundai ix25 (Creta) is 4,300mm long, which makes it around 30mm longer than its predecessor. At 1,790mm, the SUV is 10mm wider as well, but with a height of 1,622mm it is 8mm shorter than the outgoi...
