Hand-Painted Glass Mugs and Teapots Will Brighten up Your Teatime

Ukrainian glass painting artist Vita (of Vitraaze) produces mugs and teapots that are sure to brighten up your morning tea time. Each vibrant piece is hand-painted with non-toxic paint and then heat-set so the designs don’t come off when washed. From floral designs to seasonal motifs, each colorful piece is a functional piece of art. “I love the idea that I am not only creating something beautiful but also useful,” says Vita. “I hope that my works will be used and loved and bring lots of positive energy and smiles into your lives.” The artist’s portfolio of colorful glassware features a broad range of designs inspired by nature, including a butterfly-themed teapot and a pumpkin patch mug. Others are more abstract, like a rainbow-themed tea set that emits dappled patterns when hit by sunlight. Painted in Vita’s distinct style, each mug, glass, and teapot looks just like a piece of stained-glass art for your kitchen. sublimation Metallic Articles Like unique tableware?

10 best reusable coffee cups and thermos mugs: from eCoffee to Keep Cup and Bodum

Whether it’s Greta Thunberg sailing to New York, or Extinction Rebellion protesting in London, our awareness of humans’ impact on the planet has grown hugely in the past five years and climate change is never far from our minds.  One of the biggest issues we face is the amount of non-recyclable waste that eventually makes its way into the oceans. Eight trillion pieces of plastic are dumped into our seas each year, according to a Forbes survey, which has a huge impact on marine life.   The disposable coffee cup is a repeat offender. Government figures show that the UK throws away 2.5billion coffee cups each year, with less than 1 per cent of these recycled.  Most single use coffee cups contain a thin layer of polyethylene, which releases methane gas when sent to landfill, rendering them unrecyclable. This material is difficult to separate from the cardboard that surrounds it, and the UK only has three centres in which polyeth...

Will there be another series of Bake Off and will the judges return?

The finale will see another choux champion be crowned, joining the likes of past winners Rahul Mandal and Nadiya Hussain.

If you have dreams of whipping up a masterpiece in the tent, head to the application page online and follow the steps. It’ll likely come back exactly as we know and love it, but if the show decides to rebrand ‘Prue Paul’s Dough Race,’ that’s just the way the cookie crumbles. The show bosses waited until summer 2019 to confirm the Noel, Sandi, Paul and Prue would all be returning with an Alice in Wonderland teaser so the same could be expected for the 2020 season. Based on comments Prue has made in the past, it would be shocking if she didn’t return – that’s if fans can forgive her for her Baklava remarks. She told The Mirror earlier this year: ‘I just want to at least equal Mary Berry, she did seven years. I’ve got another four years to go.’ Noel Fielding recently signed up as a guest judge for Comedy Central’s Roast Battle UK so it’s unclea...

What the Amazon founder and CEO wants for his empire and himself, and what that means

What the Amazon founder and CEO wants for his empire and himself, and what that means for the rest of us. Where in the pantheon of American commercial titans does Jeffrey Bezos belong? Andrew Carnegie’s hearths forged the steel that became the skeleton of the railroad and the city. John D. Rockefeller refined 90 percent of American oil, which supplied the pre-electric nation with light. Bill Gates created a program that was considered a prerequisite for turning on a computer. At 55, Bezos has never dominated a major market as thoroughly as any of these forebears, and while he is presently the richest man on the planet, he has less wealth than Gates did at his zenith. Yet Rockefeller largely contented himself with oil wells, pump stations, and railcars; Gates’s fortune depended on an operating system. The scope of the empire the founder and CEO of Amazon has built is wider. Indeed, it is without precedent in the long history of American capitalism. Today, Bezos controls nearly 40 percent of all e-commerce in the United States. More product searches are conducted on Amazon than on Google, which has allowed Bezos to build an advertising business as valuable as the entirety of IBM. ...

STMicro extends motor drivers modules for MikroElektronika

ST’s STSPIN ICs simplify motor control by integrating the advanced control features, protected output stage, and safety functions including non-dissipative over-current protection in an extremely small footprint. Mounted on the new plug-and-play Click boards, the motor drivers are ready to use without any hardware configuration. In addition, ST has actively supported creation of MikroSDK libraries and code examples, working with MikroElektronika, to deliver high-performing software that lets users get the best from each board. The STSPIN220 Click board contains the STSPIN220 IC, which is the market’s first 10V stepper driver with the 256-microstep resolution. Delivered in a 3x3mm QFN package, it has the market’s lowest standby current, at 10nA (typical), and can deliver up to 1.3A to drive the motor with PWM current control through each of the two on-chip 0.4Ω H-bridges. The STSPIN820 Click board with the STSPIN820 stepper driver delivers an optimal balance of cost and performance for 7V-45V applications, with the 256-microstep resolution and delivering up to 1.5A in a 4x4mm QFN. The STSPIN250 Click board features the 3x3mm STSPIN250, the smallest high-current DC brush mo...

The Day – Group begins new effort to replace Ocean Beach clock tower

It’s one of the few remaining pieces of the iconic 140-foot clock tower that overlooked the park for nearly 50 years but whose clock faces crashed through the boardwalk in 1988 when workers were attempting to refurbish the steel structure. “It was tragic, the day it came down,” he said. “It was a central meeting place and is probably still on the nautical charts. It gave the whole boardwalk a different, kind of majestical feel.” A new movement is afoot to replace the clock tower, which, prior to its removal and later disappearance, was the focal point at the park. “It was visible from the entire beach and Long Island Sound. You always knew you could find somebody because you would just tell them to ‘meet me at the clock tower,’” said retired City Clerk Clark van der Lyke. Van der Lyke and New London business owner Jeff Suntup are spearheading the formation of a committee intent on raising enough funds to erect a replica of the old clock and install it where it once stood. In addition to people who already have shown interest, the public is invited to attend a meeting at 5 p.m. Wednesday in the City Hall Council Chambers. Suntup said initial estimates put the cost of replacement...

Is there anything more irritating than sharing a long bus ride with a manspreader?

OPINION: Two of the most interesting places to watch human behaviour are public swimming pools and public transport. At the pools, you can observe people’s relationship with water; whether they churn up and down the lanes like aquatic combine harvesters, get all blissed out doing amoeba impersonations or – like lots of men at the pool where I swim – simply wallow in the spa, righting the world’s wrongs and watching women in their togs. On the buses, you get to see the very best and worst of us: the Catholic-school Pasifika kids who almost always stand up for older or pregnant commuters (and the private-school and high-decile ones who often don’t), and the passengers who artfully arrange their handbags or manbags on the outer seat to prevent someone sitting next to them. (Even if there are spare seats elsewhere, I make a point of making them move their stuff, and plonking down beside them – I think of it as delivering therapy.) And don’t start me on the manspreaders… READ MORE: * Jeremy Elwood & Michele A’Court: Here’s why I’ll be casting my vote * Woman’s hair cut off on Sydney bus * Diary of a Christchurch bus passenger Once, ...

Lake Wildwood Irrigation System Moving into the New Millennium

Lake Wildwood Irrigation System Moving Into the New Millenniumby Bill Hamilton, LWA Director of AgronomyWhat is it that costs an extremely large amount of money, most people will never see, and that no modern golf course or park can exist without? The answer of course is an irrigation system. The efficient application of water is getting increasingly more important in today’s agronomic world. “Water is the new oil” and we need to use our purchased shares wisely and with intent. The days of slinging water aimlessly are over. We cannot continue to loosely apply water with an outdated system that was designed and built in the early 1970’s. There is presently a motion before our Board of Directors to replace the irrigation systems on the Golf Course and the four Parks that incorporate turf. I want to share with everyone the facts as I know them about the history and present condition of these watering platforms. New irrigation was in the planning stages to be replaced in 2013/2014. At that time, it had then come due on the Replacement Reserve schedule. Half of the project was scheduled for 2013/2014 and the other half in 2014/2015. The whole project was to be budgeted half at the e...

Gobbling Up Yogurt, Fiber Tied to Lower Lung Cancer Risk

Consuming more yogurt and fiber may protect against lung cancer development, a global study of nearly 1.5 million adults suggested. After adjustment for various known risk factors, individuals who ate higher amounts of yogurt — roughly 3 oz per day for men and 4 oz per day for women — had 19% lower risk of lung cancer compared to non-yogurt eaters (HR 0.81, 95% CI 0.76-0.87), reported Xiao-Ou Shu, MD, PhD, of Vanderbilt University Medical Center in Nashville, Tennessee, and colleagues. For fiber, people in the highest intake quintile had a 17% reduced lung cancer risk versus those in the lowest intake quintile (HR 0.83, 95% CI 0.76-0.91), as described in JAMA Oncology. “High consumption of fiber (prebiotics) and yogurt (probiotics) was related to a low risk of lung cancer. This association pattern was consistently seen among current, past smokers, and never smokers,” Shu told MedPage Today. “In addition to the known cardiovascular benefit of fiber and yogurt intake, physicians now have additional justification to encourage their care population to increase their consumption of these two types of healthy diet.” Combined, the two were associated...
