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...

MLB: Widow files wrongful death lawsuit against Braves

The widow of a beer tap inventor who died inside a walk-in beer cooler at SunTrust Park, home of the Atlanta Braves, has filed a wrongful death lawsuit against the ballclub. According to the Atlanta Journal Constitution, Angela Keeling filed the lawsuit on Friday in Fulton County State Court. She is seeking unspecified damages in the death of her husband, Marvin Todd Keeling, who was found dead on June 26, 2018, inside a walk-in beer cooler where he was installing beer taps. Keeling’s lawsuit says a faulty door mechanism and lethal carbon dioxide leaks were the primary causes of her husband’s death. According to the lawsuit, Keeling was finalizing the installation of the tap system when the cooler filled with carbon dioxide. The autopsy report said Keeling’s “fall/collapse was very rapid or that he was so disoriented that he was unable to form or act on logical thought processes.” Keeling’s lawyers contend the 48-year-old inventor had no way to get out of the cooler because of a “faulty door release mechanism that was improperly constructed, assembled, maintained and allowed to exist” despite knowledge of its status. In addition to the Braves, the lawsuit also names several con...

Plot twist: Straightening single-molecule conductors improves their performance

A team at Osaka University has created single-molecule nanowires, complete with an insulation layer, up to 10 nanometers in length. When they measured the electrical properties of these nanowires, the researchers found that forcing the ribbon-like chains to be flat significantly improved their conductivity compared with a twisted conformation. The findings may allow for a new generation of inexpensive high-tech devices, including smartphone screens and photovoltaics. googletag.cmd.push(function() { googletag.display(‘div-gpt-ad-1449240174198-2′); }); Carbon-based polymers, which are long molecular chains made of repeating units, can be found everywhere, from the rubber in the soles of your shoes to the proteins that make up your body. We used to think that these molecules could not conduct electricity, but that all changed with the discovery of conducting polymers. These are a small subset of carbon-based molecules that can act like tiny wires owing to their alternating single and double chemical bonds, also called conjugated bonds. Since carbon-based conductors are much easier and cheaper to make and customize than conventional electronics, they have seen rapid adop...

The US government has started to ease its ban on domestic companies doing business with Huawei,

The US government has started to ease its ban on domestic companies doing business with Huawei, stating that some firms will be licensed to supply the Chinese giant. Huawei has been frozen out of the US device and telecoms equipment markets for several years, and earlier this year was effectively blacklisted by Washington on national security grounds.

Line up an offcut of floorboard with the architrave. Use a panel saw to trim the

Line up an offcut of floorboard with the architrave. Use a panel saw to trim the architrave to its height. Then, use a hammer and chisel to remove enough of the bottom of the architrave that the solid wood will fit underneath it. Be sure to leave a 10-12mm expansion gap. Once you’ve worked out how many rows of boards you’ll need, and the width of the last row, you may need to do some cutting to ensure your last row isn’t less than 60mm wide. If necessary, cut the boards in your first row accordingly so that your last row won’t be too narrow. Starting in the left-hand corner of the longest wall, use a trowel to spread adhesive from the wall to the width of two planks. Lay the first board with the groove side facing the wall. Depending on the length of the board, place one or two 10-12mm spacers along the length, and one across the width. Introduce the next board at an angle of around 20-30° and lower into place. Take great care with the alignment as it is key that your first row is perfectly straight. Add spacers to maintain an expansion gap between the board and the wall. Continue laying until you can’t lay any more full boards, ensuring the line of boards is perfectly straight...

Rick Bramwell column: Kayak buyers must be sure to do their homework | Sports

Almost everyone I know who has a kayak would choose something different if they purchased a new one. I have fished often from my son’s “sit-in” 10-foot kayak. It is a pretty good set-up for floating White River or fishing small pits. However, sitting low makes it more difficult to comfortably cast and stresses my lower back. I have been watching ads for used kayaks on the internet. Some, $1,000 or more, were out of my price range while there are bargains from $150 to $600. Add-ons, such as crates with side pouches, didn’t look good but served a purpose. I was close to making a purchase several times but just could not get there before they were sold. I liked an Ascend 12 at Cabela’s, but it was $599.99. As an employee, I can get a discount of seven percent, above cost, on boats. Last Saturday, my dream Kayak showed up at the Bargain Cave marked down $100. A customer returned it because he found a scratch. “This is considered a camping item not a boat. Therefore, you can use your store-brand employee discount of 45 percent,” he said. I grabbed the ticket off the boat and headed for the checkout. This 12-foot, lime-green, sit-on-top Ascend Kayak was mine. It is long, wide and a li...

Futuristic Fibers Are Always in Fashion at Advanced Functional Fabrics of America

Fashion brands live and die based on service — whether that is online, in stores or through their factories. However engrained that is in the industry, the forward-thinking Advanced Functional Fabrics of America wants insiders and consumers to recognize the service that technologically enhanced fabrics can provide. Running tights that illuminate when facing headlights, color-changing garments, cellphone-charging fibers, athletic wear equipped to share real-time physiological data and app-powered trade show bags that share personal information are among the Cambridge, Mass.-based group’s projects. Developing fabric as a service or fabric as software is part of its mission. The concept of fabrics as a service as opposed to fabrics as a commodity is going to make the industry think about their business models in a very different way, according to AFFOA chief product officer Tosha Hays. “With subscription models like Rent The Runway, Harry’s and things like that, the consumer’s mind is shifting about how they actually purchase and use goods. The time is right for us to think of fabrics as a service,” she said, adding that services-enriched apparel is more appealing to consumers whet...
