Kentucky’s resurgent hemp sector flexed more economic clout in 2018, with processors reporting sharply higher sales and farmers reaping more than twice as much income from their crop. A new crop may be available to Iowa farmers next year, as some state lawmakers are designing a program for growing industrial hemp. “I think there’s potential for an alternative crop for Iowa farmers,” said Tim Kapucian, a Republican state senator and farmer from Keystone. Industrial hemp is plant member of the cannabis family. The plant’s seeds and stalks have myriad commercial uses, including in building materials, paper, textiles, oils and food. For decades it...

Love Red Wine But Hate the Stains It Leaves on Your Teeth? Wine Wipes Can Help

How your mouth looks after a glass of red wine depends on your genes and hygiene habits. People with strong enamel and not a lot of plaque can emerge from a wine bar with a relatively clean smile, but for those of us without those markers of exceptional dental health, red wine usually leaves dark, unsightly stains. If you fall into the latter group, there’s a way to enjoy wine and preserve your smile without sticking to whites and rosés. Using Wine Wipes is a convenient way to remove red wine stains from your teeth. The wipes come in individually wrapped packets like wet wipes. If you suspect your mouth is looking more purple than you’d like it to, tear open a packet, remove the wipe, and rub it over your pearly whites to make them pearly white again. The wipes comes in an orange blossom flavor, which won’t spoil your palate in case you want to have another glass of wine or two. The Wine Wipes are billed as toothbrush alternative for when you’re drinking outside your home, but wiping your teeth may be even better that brushing them if you want to remove wine stains. The bristles of a toothbrush can scratch enamel, creating entry points for dark pigments. ...

It’s only been a few days since the announcement of a new business in New Town,

It’s only been a few days since the announcement of a new business in New Town, but there’s more news to come. Kung Fu Tea, a locally-owned franchise selling various tea products and Taiwanese fried chicken specialties, will open at 4902 Courthouse St. between Brass Tap of Williamsburg and Conte’s Bikes, leasing agent Cushman and Wakefield | Thalhimer wrote in a news release Thursday.

The drinks can be customized on three levels, called the topping, sugar and ice levels.

Asus ROG Zephyrus M GU502 review: Powerful gaming laptop that scores brownie points in productivity

Asus may have just released its Zephyrus M GU502 gaming laptop, but we’ve been testing this device for a while now to see if it lives up to the Zephyrus standards. The Zephyrus M that Asus sent us packed a 9th Gen Intel Core i7 CPU, Nvidia GeForce GTX 1660Ti GPU, 16GB of DDR4 RAM (Expandable to 32GB) and an M.2 NVMe PCIe 3.0 512GB SSD. The build quality on this device is pretty solid sporting a brushed aluminium lid with a red Zephyrus logo on the side. Asus has used a combination of magnesium and aluminium alloys on the chassis, ensuring a light form factor. The palm rest hides honeycomb reinforcements to ensure zero flex and a stiff frame. Asus confirmed that the GU502 is 14 percent smaller in volume and 22 percent lighter than the previous Zephyrus M. The Zephyrus M series ditches the famed Zephyrus design that shifts the keyboard to the bottom and trackpad to the side, opting for a more traditional user layout, and is far more comfortable than the Zephyrus GX501. The keyboard doesn’t get a Numpad but it is particularly nice for typing and gaming; there’s a little tactile feel when pressing down on a key and the spacing between each key is quite adequate. T...

Dedicated Production Line for Beryllium Foil and Sheet Set to Launch > ENGINEERING.com

YPE html PUBLIC “-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN” “http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-transitional.dtd”> Los Angeles-based elemental manufacturing firm American Elements is doubling down on its commitment to high-purity beryllium fabrication. Beryllium already occupies an important niche in manufacturing. The element boasts an array of useful properties. A combination of a remarkably high specific heat, good thermal conductivity and low density make it extremely well suited to structural applications requiring high thermal stability. This is why the metal is most commonly employed as an alloying agent to copper, aluminum and iron. Its low density and knack for withstanding huge temperature and pressure fluctuations has made it a favorite for aerospace and military implements for decades. Modern fighter jets, missiles, spacecraft—any object likely to break the sound barrier while remaining intact—likely incorporates beryllium in some proportion. However, for certain other applications, compounds won’t get the job done. In this context, thin, highly purified sheets of beryllium are needed. It is for these situations that American Elemen...

The Quad-City Times is pleased to announce a new hardcover coffee-table book, Into the Fields: A

The Quad-City Times is pleased to announce a new hardcover coffee-table book, Into the Fields: A Celebration of Farm Life. This unique book provides an up-close and personal look at farm life over the years through the eyes of the Quad-City photographers and the treasured stories from writer Jennifer Ewoldt. Since 2009, Jennifer Ewoldt has been sharing memorable tales about farming and rural life in her column, “Rural Route 4.” Over the years, Quad-City Times readers have gotten to know her family, the ups and downs of the farm economy, the terror of drought, the celebration of a good harvest and the pain that comes from the death of a favorite horse. The column is paired with beautiful photography showing farming and rural life in our community. The photos span generations – some pulled from the newspaper archives and many others shot by Quad-City Times staff photographer Jeff Cook, who has worked to capture local farm life for more than 30 years. Bins full of seed corn are ready for planting earlier in May at the Bowman farm, north of DeWitt, Iowa. Locally grown sweet corn and other produce is available at the Blossom Farms location near the intersection of 42nd a...
