The BayCare Health System of hospitals in Florida has increased security measures at most of its facilities now, including metal detector screenings. Most BayCare hospital facilities will now require visitors to pass through a metal detector screening and show identification before they can enter. Visitors who successfully pass these two steps will receive the photo ID badge required to enter the facility. According to John Nicely, director of safety and security, BayCare began implementing these security measures last year and will continue rolling them out during the next few months. BayCare is the largest not-for-profit healthcare provider in the Tampa-St. Petersburg area. The system is not revealing which hospitals have metal detectors in place, but St. Anthony’s Hospital in St. Petersburg started using them last week, according to Catalyst. “Safety is a primary concern for BayCare. Nothing specifically has happened at our hospitals but we want to keep a safe and secure environment for our patients, physicians and anyone in our...

AliExpress has great electric bicycle & scooter deals today for Singles Day

When Mr. Big proposed to Carrie Bradshaw in Sex and the City 2, he did so with

When Mr. Big proposed to Carrie Bradshaw in Sex and the City 2, he did so with a five-carat black diamond Itay Malkin ring set in 18-karat white gold (to be exact) with the words, “Because you’re not like anyone else.” The truth is, Mr. Big nailed it—a bold, stylish, unconventional woman requires a ring that matches her in every measure. Though the trend began gaining influence in the late 20th century, Carrie fans catapulted the unique gemstone into pop culture, and now, six years later, we’re seeing black diamonds on the fingers of fashion girls and celebs alike. Today’s brides are always looking to set themselves apart from the rest and convey their own sense of style, for which the alluring, glamorous black diamond is ideal.

Not to mention, black diamonds often carry slightly lower price points than their white diamond counterparts. Finally, black diamonds symbolize eternal, flawless, and unchanging love, making them perfect for an engagement ring. Compl...

Woman reportedly dies after falling onto eco-friendly metal straw

Eco-friendly metal straws have been all the rage after several US states enacted bans against single-use plastic straws, but a tragedy in the UK might have some consumers thinking twice. According to The Daily Echo, Elena Struthers-Gardner, a 60-year-old retired jockey known as “Lena,” suffered a fatal brain injury after she tripped and fell on a metal straw, which pierced her brain at her home in Broadstone, England. Struthers-Gardner was carrying a mason-jar-style drinking glass with a screw-top when she stumbled while holding the beverage container, causing the 10-inch stainless-steel straw to go through her left eye socket and ultimately into her brain, according to the report. According to The Daily Echo, the death of Struthers-Gardner prompted a coroner warning “that metal drinking straws should never be used with a lid that fixes them in place, and ‘great care should be taken’ while using them.” Metal drinking straws have started popping up in stores and restaurants around the world following reports that single-use plastic straws are not only incapable of being recycled because of their small size, but are also especially perilous to s...

Print Hub installs Konica Minolta AccurioPress C6085

The 2011-founded company specialises in commercial digital printing, photo album printing along with providing design services. “We took the time and effort to check all the competitors in the segment before narrowing down on the C6085 which replaces our Nexpress,” said Sathiya Ramanan R, founding partner of Print Hub. This is the company’s third Konica Minolta press with 1060 and 70hc being the other two machines. A raft of finishing equipment like Itoh cutting machine, Macrobond laminator, Digi laser-laser cutting machine etc., also part of the setup. “The consistency in colour reproduction combined with the ability to print in higher grammage of up to 400 gsm are some of the features which made us choose this press,” said Ramanan. The 6085 can print sizes from 13×19 inches to 13×51 inches up to maximum speed of 85 ppm. “We have noticed a significant improvement in our productivity since replacing the press. For example, the time taken for the first copy from the C6085 is at max 10 seconds whereas we had to wait a couple of minutes in our Nexpress,” said Ramanan “Power consumption is considerably lesser and we have cruc...

Car theft WARNING: simple safety errors putting you at risk of having your vehicle stolen

British drivers could be putting themselves at risk of having their car stolen by making a number of mistakes. According to figures from the Office of National Statistics (ONS), the number of cars stolen increased by nine per cent in 2018, compared to the previous year. There were a total of 113,037 offences of “theft or unauthorised taking of a motor vehicle” logged by authorities. As a result, drivers are encouraged to be vigilant in protecting their vehicle to avoid running into problems. New research from Halfords found that drivers are negotiating to take simple safety steps to deter criminals. Keyless entry car theft is perhaps the most prolific type of theft taking place in Britain at the moment. This type of crime sees a pair of transmitters are used to ‘trick’ the vehicle into thinking the key is near to the vehicle by intercepting the signal allowing criminals to break in enter and start the car with ease. Despite the wide reporting of this type of offence only five per cent of drivers hide their fobs in a RFID wallet, a simple precaution which can stop gangs from intercepting the signal from their keyless entry system.
