THOR UAV hovers like a helicopter, flies like a plane 

Students at Singapore’s University of Technology and Design have developed a drone that can transition from hovering to flying as a fixed-wing aircraft.  While normal multicopter drones are effective at hovering and Vertical Take-Off and Landing, they can’t travel long-distance as efficiently as aircraft with fixed wings.  So students at SUTD incorporated both design aspects in the drone prototype, dubbed THOR (Transformable HOvering Rotorcraft).   The THOR drone’s design inspiration came from the samara seed – a tree seed that is capable of flying long distances because of its stable shape. Pictured is the drone in hover more According to New Atlas, THOR’s design inspiration came from the samara seed – a ‘helicopter’ tree seed that is capable of flying long distances because of its stable shape. When the drone is in hover mode, it can rotate its wings (servos) by 90 degrees to transition to cruise mode,  During this transition, centrifugal force of switch is used to move the ballast, a weight in an aircraft used to bring the center of gravity into the allowable range, to keep the aircraft balanced.  While the drone is still at th...

‘Tasting Funny for Years’: Lead in the Water and a City in Crisis

Adunola Clement washed dishes in her home on Norwood Street, in Newark’s West Ward neighborhood.CreditCreditBryan Anselm for The New York Times NEWARK — Donnette Goodluck tried all day to pick up the free bottled water the city was distributing as officials addressed a growing lead contamination crisis. When she first arrived at Boylan Street Recreation Center last Tuesday at 10:30 a.m., the line wrapped around the block; Ms. Goodluck and others were told to come back at 1 p.m. At 1 p.m., she was instructed to come back two hours later. Uncertain she could find a neighbor to watch the six children she babysits, she gave up. “Two free cases to do everything — to drink, to cook. It won’t last me that long but it’s not cheap for me to keep buying water myself,” said Ms. Goodluck, 52. On Ms. Goodluck’s stretch of Norwood Street in the city’s West Ward section, residents say the water crisis now gripping Newark began long before officials agreed to distribute free bottled water last week. The city’s stopgap measure was taken in response to a scathing letter from the E.P.A. released on Aug. 9, which found dangerously high lead levels in sections of the city’s water supply. It was Newa...

Bronze ist eine attraktive Alternative zu Stahl oder Edelmetallen, wenn es um Uhrengehäuse geht. Die Optik

Bronze ist eine attraktive Alternative zu Stahl oder Edelmetallen, wenn es um Uhrengehäuse geht. Die Optik unterscheidet sich deutlich von Gold; dazu nehmen Bronze-Uhren im Laufe der Zeit eine Patina an, das heißt ihre Oberfläche verändert sich. Das ist je nach Träger und Umwelteinflüssen unterschiedlich, sodass nach einer gewissen Zeit jede Bronze-Uhr quasi ein Einzelstück ist. Die Idee, Bronze für Uhrengehäuse zu nutzen, stammt vom Designer Gérald Genta (1931–2011), bekannt unter anderem als Gestalter der Audemars Piguet Royal Oak und der Patek Philippe Nautilus. Er brachte schon 1988 eine Bronzeuhr namens Gefica unter seiner eigenen Marke. Nachdem Bulgari die Marke Gerald Genta übernommen hatte, legte man 2011 die bronzene Gefica BiRetro Safari auf. Die Uhr zeigt die springende Stunde digital im Fenster; Minuten und Datum werden mit zurückspringenden Zeigern (retrograd) dargestellt. Da Bronze-Uhren seit einiger Zeit total im Trend liegen, lancieren zahlreiche Uhrenhersteller Modelle aus diesem Material. Sie nutzen aber unterschiedliche Legierungen: Den Hauptanteil bildet Kupfer, dazu kommen Zinn und/oder Aluminium sowie, zu geringeren Anteilen, Stoffe wie Eisen...

A child in a classroom for the youngest students at Hill Country Montessori sets up his workspace. Photo: Jackie Mader/The Hechinger Report AUSTIN, Texas — Mallory Foster was relieved when she, her husband and her stepson’s mother agreed that a local Montessori school would be the right fit for their 4-year-old. They weren’t specifically looking for a Montessori program, but that style of learning appealed to the three parents; it was a sort of added bonus to a school that advertised itself as a “Montessori garden” where kids would spend most of their time outside. Located in a south Austin home, the daycare center boasted more than half an acre of land for children to explore and on which they could grow vegetables in their own gardening plots. Inside, the living room was filled with wooden toys that Foster was told were Montessori supplies. But after only a few months, Foster started to have concerns about the school’s safety and the quality of the education. Long emails from the director, the only adult on site, came during the middle of the day while the children were awake. Foster wondered how the woman could monitor children while writing. And Foster’s stepson didn’t seem ...

Consumers are becoming more tech-savvy and, as a result, their expectations for the data and services

Consumers are becoming more tech-savvy and, as a result, their expectations for the data and services utilities offer are more demanding than ever. They want to see data to support the charges outlined on their water bills and expect a response to issues in real-time. At a time when transparency is valued more than ever, better transparency can be an essential asset to utilities seeking to improve relationships with their customers. One way utilities can gain greater accuracy in their billing and improve transparency for their customers is through flow measurement. When examining flow measurement, it’s first important to define exactly what this entails. Flow measurement speaks to how the water meter monitors the volume of flowing water running through it in order to accurately detect usage. While utilities cannot control how fast water is flowing through their pipes, they can provide accurate data to measure it. In addition to providing accurate data for billing purposes, having a better understanding of the rate provides insights that can help assess potential damage when there is a water leak or monitor the risk associated with a broken pipe in terms of lost revenue. The choi...
