Turns out coffee pods are actually pretty good for the environment

If you want to combine your love of espresso with a desire to be green, you may have to make a few unexpected coffee choices Our addiction to single shot coffee capsules is not good for the environment, because of the energy to grow the beans, make the capsules, brew the coffee, and dispose of the waste. But there’s an upside: capsules turn out to be a more sustainable way of drinking espresso than nearly any other method of making coffee. And according to new research, recyclable aluminium pods are more environmentally friendly than all other capsules, whether they are made from plastic or compostable materials. These capsules, whether from Nespresso, Lavazza, Illy, Bosch Tassimo, Keurig, Nestle or a bevy of smaller companies, have quickly conquered the world; even connoisseurs and many Michelin-starred restaurants have opted for them. In the US alone, sales of coffee pod machines have soared during the past decade, from 1.8 million units in 2008 to 20.7 million in 2018, according to market resear...

We wax poetic about how a great pair will age: how it will develop a unique patina, how it will form to the wearer’s foot, how it can be resoled countless times. We talk about it like it’s a serious investment, not as a rhetorical exercise, because it actually is. Most quality boots cost hundreds of dollars and are designed to last for years. When many brands or retailers describe expensive boots, they often rely on manufacturing processes as marketing terms. This is Goodyear welted, therefore, it is a quality product. Though construction processes undeniably have an effect on the quality of a boot, one method is not necessarily better than another. They have different purposes and features, resulting ...

German Energy Shift Will Be Like ‘Open-Heart Surgery’-Economy Minister

BERLIN — Germany’s transition to a fossil-fuel free energy mix will be like undergoing “open-heart surgery” as the car, steel and renewable industries will need to work hard to stay competitive, its economy minister said on Tuesday. The German government has spurred Europe’s largest economy to shift to volatile renewable energy sources like wind and solar power in the wake of its decision to end nuclear power by 2022 and exit coal-fuelled power sources by 2038. Economy Minister Peter Altmaier said Germany could in the meantime use natural gas as a transition fuel, tap into intra-European Union power sharing, and develop a green hydrogen-based economy that will offer energy storage and enable industry to work sustainably. “We have to keep fighting for our competitiveness,” Altmaier told an annual energy summit of government and industry leaders hosted by newspaper Handelsblatt. Germany’s efforts to wean itself off nuclear energy and coal could be an export model going forward, he said. The national hydrogen strategy will take shape shortly and may be presented within seven to eight weeks, he said, adding that this was especially important...

The right camera bag isn’t always the easiest thing to find. Some prefer slings, others prefer

The right camera bag isn’t always the easiest thing to find. Some prefer slings, others prefer pouches, and a good number prefer backpacks. I’m studying journalism, and a substantial amount of my coursework is reporting-intensive, meaning I have to go to locations to get the story. So, I need to comfortably carry both my camera kit and my laptop. Case Logic’s SLR Camera/Laptop Backpack arrived, and I found a solution to my academic and professional needs. -EVA bottom is an excellent touch that allows the bag to stand upright -Great amount of organizational capacity -Shoulder straps are comfortable -Hammock suspension system works very well (more on that later) -You will sweat -Be careful in crowded spaces, you might knock into folks -This is not for those who don’t want others to know they’re photographers -Sony a580 with Minolta AF 70-210mm f4 attached -Minolta AF 28mm f2.8 -Minolta AF 50mm f1.7 -Minolta AF 135mm f2.8 -Minolta AF 28-85mm f3.5-4.5 -Samyang 85mm f1.4 -Sigma 15mm f2.8 -MacBook Pro 13″ -Logitech mouse With the lead image here, you can see that Case Logic’s backpack has a semblance in shape to standard backpacks: small front pocket, large middle bit, side compartmen...

Brass Community School kindergartners Valeria Garcia, left, and Armando Barajas-Castillo, right, paint pots and plant plants

Brass Community School kindergartners Valeria Garcia, left, and Armando Barajas-Castillo, right, paint pots and plant plants in Laura Marran and Henry Thurman’s class at the school on Thursday. Thanks to Jen Conrad of Unique Blooms and Stephanie Ash of Arbitrary Creations, the students painted small ceramic pots and then filled them with soil and plants. “It was great,” Conrad said. “The teachers were thrilled, and every one of the kids was focused and engaged.” After the children potted their plants, they were taught how to care for them, including sunlight, soil and watering. This is the first time Conrad hosted a “Paint and Plant” activity in a school. She does them regularly at Union Park Tavern. The idea came from her sons, who wanted use money they received for Christmas to give back to the community, specifically to kids at Brass School. Her sons — Harborside Academy students Morgan Meyer, Matthew Conrad and Michael Conrad — also helped out with the event. “We hope to make this an annual event,” Jen said. “We hope to create a fund and do a larger program.” Sophia Loeffler, center left, and Maya Weyker, center right, pose for photographs before commencement ceremonies at ...

NovelCart智能购物车系统关键技术研究–传媒–人民网

摘要:目前,全国大小超市星罗棋布,几乎所有的超市都会出现大量顾客排队等待结账的场面,这不仅会浪费顾客的时间,也不利于超市的经营与盈利。本文基于超宽带室内定位技术(UWB)、射频识别技术(RFID)以及一些人工智能算法,从技术上解决了传统超市人工收银台结账效率低下、用户长时间排队影响用户体验的问题,同时也解决了现有智能购物车需要用户手动扫描已购商品的问题,实现了功能比较完善并可直接安装在传统购物车上的智能购物车系统NovelCart。 NovelCart智能购物车系统搭载的UHF-RFID模块用于实时获取车内商品信息,同时将信息通过串口发送至ARM主控制器;UWB室内定位模块配合定位基站与STM32协处理器通过串口与树莓派连接,进行室内实时定位,实现固定区域自动结算;与ARM主控制器通过HDMI连接的触摸显示屏可以用来与用户进行交互和AI广告推送;整个系统的核心ARM主控制器依靠强大的计算能力对整个系统进行信息处理,同时根据收集到的用户购物信息,运用关联规则挖掘算法Apriori进行数据挖掘,实现精准的广告推送。NovelCart智能购物车系统的实现,在提升用户购物体验的同时还帮助超市节省了人力成本;且对比现有的一些智能购物车,成本更低,功能更加齐全,设备更加智能,有利于后续推广。 关键词:UWB;RFID;图像识别;关键规则挖掘算法;协同滤波算法;智能购物车 物联网是新一代信息技术的重要组成部分。目前,与物联网技术结合的超市智能购物系统已经得到了广泛的发展,...

Bobcat’s new T76 compact track loader is part of its R-Series lineup of CTLs and skid

Bobcat’s new T76 compact track loader is part of its R-Series lineup of CTLs and skid steers. Photo: Wayne Grayson It’s not surprising that we’re hearing tales of compact equipment sales in some geographical areas growing 40 percent per year from 2015 to 2018. The construction industry has seemingly gone gaga over these versatile, maneuverable machines. From a sheer numbers standpoint, you could even say they’ve taken over. Three compact machines – for this part of the discussion we’re limiting it to compact track loaders, compact excavators and skid steers – now make up 66 percent of the top 13 types of new machines financed this year through August 31, 2019. This is according to data from EDA, a Randall-Reilly firm that tracks financed machine buys. When we looked at the top buyers of these three machines from 2014 to 2018, all of the top user segments have seen double-digit growth – and in the case of heavy construction, triple-digit growth – in the number of new and used units financed. (See chart.) Since 2014, the number of new machines financed – again, we’re talking about CTLs, compact excavators and skid steers – has risen by 9 percentage points. You could dismiss this ...
