Tesla’s Musk rejects solar on cars. It’s not stopping Toyota, Hyundai

It sounds like a Utopian concept: drivers being able to power their vehicles simply by leaving them out in the sun. Even tech leaders know their bold visions have been skeptical. In 2017, Tesla CEO Elon Musk called it a fantasy to put solar panels on cars, stating that the surface area available for panels, and the amount of time many cars spend parked in garages, argued against pursuing the design. “The least efficient place to put solar is on the car,” Musk said at the 2017 National Governors Association meeting. That has not stopped Toyota or Hyundai. Both automakers are debuting solar panels on their electric vehicles to add an additional charge, while auto start-ups are experimenting with even bolder solar panel designs. The idea is not entirely new. The 2015 Toyota Prius had a solar panel roof feature that would help power the vehicles’ ventilation system. Now Toyota is trying to take it a step further in their new solar power testing. The company is inspired by new ultrathin solar panels developed by satellites that make them malleable enough to form-fit to the body of a car. “The goal is to utilize efficient power as much as possible,” said ...

Home urine test for prostate cancer could revolutionize diagnosis — ScienceDaily

A simple urine test under development for prostate cancer detection can now use urine samples collected at home — according to new research from University of East Anglia and the Norfolk and Norwich University Hospital. Scientists pioneered the test which diagnoses aggressive prostate cancer and predicts whether patients will require treatment up to five years earlier than standard clinical methods. Their latest study shows how the ‘PUR’ test (Prostate Urine Risk) could be performed on samples collected at home, so men don’t have to come into the clinic to provide a urine sample — or have to undergo an uncomfortable rectal examination. This is an important step forward, because the first urination of the day provides biomarker levels from the prostate that are much higher and more consistent. And the research team hope that the introduction of the ‘At-Home Collection Kit’ could revolutionise diagnosis of the disease. Lead researcher Dr Jeremy Clark, from UEA’s Norwich Medical School, said: “Prostate cancer is the most common cancer in men in the UK. It usually develops slowly and the majority of cancers will not require trea...

4 Chain Necklaces for the Holiday Season and Beyond

Layering necklaces has been a popular style in some iteration or another for a very long time. Most recently, though, it’s been fun to watch how it has blossomed from a relatively simple concept to something quite a bit more elaborate and personal. Some years ago (say, between five and 10), layering pendants were all the rage. You’d have a short chain—say about 16 inches—then a slightly longer one, and then one slightly longer than that, each strung with a single pendant that created a perfectly aligned trio of everything from diamonds to hearts to palm trees. The exact look was so popular that jewelers began offering all-in-one pieces, combining three strands into one clasp and calling it a day. This is still a very well-liked style that I’m sure you wouldn’t be too hard-pressed to find. Quick memory detour: Remember in the ’90s when those three-strand fishing wire necklaces were everything? You know the ones strung with bezel-set gemstones (usually crystal or cubic zirconia) that appeared to be floating? Those were fun. Anyway, back to 2019. Layering has gotten much less formal as of late. There’s no specific number of necklaces needed to achieve a specific look, no right or w...

Baby bouncer box purchased at Florida Goodwill contains semiautomatic rifle instead

VALPARAISO, Florida — A Florida woman says what she thought was the perfect baby shower gift turned out to be anything but. The Palm Beach Post reports Veronica Alvarez-Rodriguez went to a Goodwill store and bought a box that indicated a Baby Einstein’s bouncer was inside. She tells the newspaper the gift, which cost $9.99, was in what appeared to be an unopened box and seemed to be new. She also purchased a baby bathtub toy. “I was winning. I thought I hit the jackpot with two gifts that were not open,” Alvarez-Rodriguez tells CNN. She gave the gifts to the expecting mother, Amber Rosas, CNN reports. Rosas and her husband opened the box for the baby bouncer later that day and were stunned by what they found … a loaded Mossberg 715T semiautomatic rifle, Fox News reports. Police in Crestview, Florida, are now investigating the incident. The Daily News reports that the gun has not been linked to any criminal activity and has not been reported stolen. However, police are waiting for more information from the Federal Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives. 1.5w Lens High Power Led Lights “You can imagine we get all kinds of crazy things — some are donated in...

It’s the first thing I saw as I walked into the storefront, in cursive print, emblazoned

It’s the first thing I saw as I walked into the storefront, in cursive print, emblazoned on a white shirt with a heart-shaped earth scribbled on top. Its owner, a mannequin donning a poofy gray Champion jacket and black sweatpants, was dressed more expensively than I’ve ever been. The Evanston Urban Outfitters: one of the largest clothing stores in immediate proximity to Northwestern’s campus. It’s where I spent my money in the first quarter of freshman year, determined to build a skater boy vibe despite not knowing how to skateboard. I hadn’t been back since. Last week, armed with $20, I was back. I felt drawn to the checkerboard-patterned flannels, blues and reds and yellows and blacks, which occupy their own display, and the racks of vintage hats on the far back wall. But with my cost-conscious budget in mind, I headed straight to the clearance section and parsed through the array of shirts still on the racks. I slung two shirts over my forearm and moved on towards the jeans section, where I picked up a pair of stonewashed skinny jeans. The dressing room at Urban is minimalist, with wood panels on either side of a large central mirror, hooks on the side for clothing. I walked...

The Best Photography Lighting For 2019, From Speedlight To Strobe

Photography is all about light, and one of the best ways to improve your photography is to learn how to bring your own light to a scene, whether on or off-camera, flash or video light. When it comes to photography gear, rarely is any product the definitive “best” for every photographer, and this is particularly true with lighting equipment.

That is, if you can afford it. The B10 may stand above other options, but it’s far from the most affordable way to get great lighting. Here are some of our favorite photo and video lights for different disciplines and budgets. Why you should buy this: High flash output in a compact form factor for bringing the studio to the field.
