The good news is: there is food for all, enough and more. Our godowns can beat

The good news is: there is food for all, enough and more. Our godowns can beat several months of lockdown. Together, 140 crore Indians eat 214 lakh tonnes of grain a year—as rotis, rice, biscuits, noodles, poha, idlis or whatever—and our warehouses have 565 lakh tonnes. If together 140 crore Indians can prevent the coronavirus from reaching our paddies and fields through community transmission, our farmers can safely walk to their fields to harvest a bumper this season which, by early estimates, should yield about 2.9 crore tonnes. Not just roti and rice, there will be dal, too. Pulses are in plenty. The season is yielding 2.3 crore tonnes, which is 27.6 lakh tonnes more than in any year since 2015. And, oil to cook these. Oilseeds production is estimated to be 26.7 lakh tonnes more this year, and sugar 40.7 lakh tonnes more. So with most other food. The challenge is how to get this food from the godowns to the locked-down markets. A few lakh among the 140 crore will have to venture out, taking the risk of being bitten by the virus, and move this grain from the godowns into our kitchens—loaders, drivers, managers, mandi merchants, book-keepers, grocers and shop boys. To keep the...

Expansions-highlight-new-year-for-20/20-Custom-Molded-Plastics logo-pn-color logo-pn-color

Organic growth seems to suit 20/20 Custom Molded Plastics Ltd. just fine, and the company continues to expand its facilities in Ohio and Indiana to keep up with demand. The Holiday City, Ohio-based company specializes in low-pressure structural foam gas-assist injection molding. In October, it announced plans to expand add 240,000 square feet to its existing 170,000-square-foot facility in Bluffton, Ind. According to 20/20 President Ron Ernsberger, work in Bluffton is just getting up a good head of steam. “The building should be up by third quarter 2019,” he said in an email interview. “Getting the machines in, up and running will likely take a full year beyond the building part.” 20/20 purchased the Bluffton facility in 2017 and initially planned to invest more than $27 million to purchase, equip, and expand the facility and create up to 155 jobs. However, the newly announced expansion is larger than initially announced. A total investment now reaches over $41 million and the creation of over 200 jobs since the August 2017 acquisition. In announcing the acquisition of the former Buckhorn site, at first 20/20 said it planned to purchase the presses and e...

Light-induced assembly of living bacteria with honeycomb substrate

Some bacteria are recognized to produce useful substances and electric currents, offering a promising solution to environmental and energy problems. However, applications of high-performance microbial devices require a method to accumulate living bacteria into a higher-density condition in larger substrates. Here, we propose a method for the high-density assembly of bacteria (106 to 107 cells/cm2) with a high survival rate of 80 to 90% using laser-induced convection onto a self-organized honeycomb-like photothermal film. Furthermore, the electricity-producing bacteria can be optically assembled, and the electrical current can be increased by one to two orders of magnitude simply by increasing the number of laser irradiations. This concept can facilitate the development of high-density microbial energy conversion devices and provide new platforms for unconventional environmental technology. The broad application potential of a wide variety of beneficial bacteria is increasingly recognized by exploiting bacterial metabolic mechanisms, including the purification of useful organic compounds for sewage treatment and bioethanol production (1) and acquisition of electrical energy (2). ...

Modular Fixture Plates Perfect For Small Production Runs

If you’ve ever done any small production runs of anything that needs a bit of assembly, you know that jigs and fixtures are a huge time saver. However, these usually need to be mounted, which means you end up drilling holes in your workbench or making one-off mounting plates. [Jim Smith] is no stranger to this problem, and created the Pact Plate, an affordable modular fixture plate and is running a Kickstarter campaign to get it produced. Each plate 150 mm × 150 mm in size with a 25 × 25 mm grid of holes with M4 threaded inserts. This allows quickly and easily mounted to and removed from the plate without the need to drill additional holes. Plates can be bolted together to form larger plates. The demo video shows him using a variety of 3D printed jigs, toggle clamps, PCB and part holders (available for download) and even a robot to quickly set up small assembly stations. This could also save a lot of time during the prototyping and development phases to hold parts in place. [Jim]’s prototypes are all 3D printed, but want’s to get tooling made to produce the plates using injection moulding. He doesn’t say what material he intends to use, but it’s likely some type of fibre reinfor...

10 to 30% of the electrical bill of an average industrial company is taken up by

10 to 30% of the electrical bill of an average industrial company is taken up by compressed air. Furthermore, only 50% is used for production, as shown by studies. So, investing in compressed air savings, pays back easily!  Here are 10 tips how to reduce your consumption. In the mean-time, if you want to learn more about the huge compressed air savings potential, click here. A simple manual or motorised valve can save you thousands of euros/dollars. Make sure that air is not lost through leaks or machines standing in idle mode. Flow meters help to determine to which sections air is flowing. A compressor converts 90% of its power into heat. The compressor room heats up, while a compressor uses less energy to compress cold air. 3°C cooler air, already results in 1% energy savings. Have insight in your compressed air usage profile, so you can optimise your compressor control system. Ask an air audit specialist to perform an air audit and make an improvement plan based upon the results. Clean compressed air is important for the life span of your compressed air installation. Choose the right quality carefully for specific processes whenever possible, as higher air quality results in ...

Within the fictional metropolis of Cosmopolis rests the district of Mission Hill and its many hip

Within the fictional metropolis of Cosmopolis rests the district of Mission Hill and its many hip kids. The cartoon’s creators, Invoice Oakley and Josh Weinstein, felt that Mission Hill focused on an age group few different reveals in animation centered — a truth that is still true to at the present time. Many several types of relationships unfold throughout Mission Hill’s singular season, highlighting lifelike sexual themes in addition to constructive portrayals of a (then) trendy homosexual couple. The present’s partaking coloration palette and incisive humor nonetheless handle to impress, and although fashions have modified, its portrayal of aimless younger maturity stays poignant. 18 episodes had been deliberate, however solely 13 had been truly made. Oakley and Weinstein declare a lack of awareness of the way to correctly market the present on the a part of the community is in charge, alongside their very own naivete. They’d long run plans for the present, nevertheless, and have not given up on them solely. One other set of episodes may see predominant characters Andy and Kevin develop extra, and cement the present as a low-fi, avant-garde favourite. Here is hoping. Making...
