When they say multisport, they mean it. You can pick from a combination of swimming, biking, and running. No need to do a triathlon (this one’s a 1K swim, 30K bike, and 7.4k run) or half marathon, although they have those, You can also do a duathlon (run, bike, run), an aquabike (swim, bike,) or a 5K run. The courses are flat, so expect fast times. The whole seaside town gets involved: The transition area is on the main street, and when you cross the finish line, you can party on the boardwalk.

Today, 635 people line up annually to do the climb on two wheels. This 7.6-mile bike race is far steeper than what you see in the Tour de France. The average grade is 12 percent, with extended sections of 18 percent, capped off by a 22 percent grade for the last 50 yards. It’s considered the toughest paved-hill climb in the world.

The Wolverine I-90 EPX CarbonMax Boot won the 2018 Pro Tool Innovation Award for Best Boot

The Wolverine I-90 EPX CarbonMax Boot won the 2018 Pro Tool Innovation Award for Best Boot so there must be something special about it. I laced up a pair to find out exactly what Wolverine did so well. For any tradesman that wants a lightweight, comfortable, and durable safety boot that also protects feet from the elements and slippery conditions, these Wolverines fit the bill. SUPPORT OUR ADVERTISERSgoogletag.cmd.push(function() { googletag.display(‘div-gpt-ad-1389975325257-0′); }); I don’t think there’s a work boot worth its salt that doesn’t require at least a little break-in period. Fortunately, the break-in for the Wolverine I-90 EPX CarbonMax Boot was pretty short for me. It was really more of a newness factor than an uncomfortable one. Besides, I was gladly swapping my non-waterproof, regular boots for the waterproofing and safety of the Wolverines. My only real (small) concern at first was convenience: I usually wear boots with a metal zipper and the I-90s have laces. I know, big deal, right? I’m happy to find that the Wolverines go on and come off without a problem. Every jobsite has a hundred things that are potentially hazardous to your feet. In the mason...

Americhem builds base in India with acquisition CRAINS-CLEVELAND-horizontal-red-wht CRAINS-CLEVELAND-horizontal-red-wht

Americhem Inc.’s recent acquisition of Indian materials firm Prescient Color Ltd. is the next step in the firm’s global strategy, according to CEO Matthew Hellstern. Cuyahoga Falls-based Americhem announced the deal on June 1. Prescient is based in Pune, India, and makes textile and specialty masterbatch concentrates for markets including synthetic fibers. No sale price was announced for the transaction. “Acquisitions are going to be key for us, along with organic growth,” Hellstern said in a recent interview with Plastics News. “India is a fast-growing region. The Indian middle class continues to expand. “We have customers moving into that region and we want to move with them. [Prescient] also is focused on fibers, just like we are.” Hellstern added that Americhem is impressed with technology that Prescient has developed and plans to merge some of it with its own core competencies and technologies. Prescient was incorporated in 2006 and initially operated in a small plant of its parent company, Sudarshan Chemical Industries Ltd. Prescient acquired its own site in 2008. Most of Prescient’s products are based on polypropylene and PE...

6 Laptop Charging Bags, Ranked Best to Worst laptop

No matter how long your laptop, phone and tablet last on a single charge, you can always use some extra juice when you hit the road. Carrying a portable power bank makes a lot of sense, but it’s even easier if that external battery is built right into your bag with dedicated spaces for ports and wires. A good laptop-charging bag can be pricey investment, so we’ve tested the major models and ranked them from best to worst. We took the Lenovo Yoga 920 at full charge (12 hours and 22 minutes) and connected each of the fully charged battery packs to calculate the additional power the Yoga received. While each battery was plugged in, we ran our Laptop Mag Battery Test, which involves continuous web surfing over Wi-Fi at 100 nits of brightness until the power is drained. We benchmarked the new battery lifetimes and subtracted 12:22 from the results to determine how much benefit you get from the backpack power banks. We used the same methods to find the additional runtime added to the iPhone 8 (9 hours and 54 minutes). However our smartphone test involves continuous web surfing at 150 nits instead. With 12 padded pockets available to store your items, whether it be a 17-in...

Australian Coal Power Will Be Quickly Killed By Low Cost Renewables

YPE html PUBLIC “-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN” “http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-transitional.dtd”> Last month the entire country sweltered under an oppressive heatwave — except the half known as Western Australia.  As air conditioner power consumption soared on the 25th, 40% of Victoria’s coal generators failed followed by rolling blackouts. When faced with this incontrovertible evidence of coal’s unreliability, the government dedicated itself to the rapid phaseout of coal under its “affordable, reliable 24/7 power” program. Sorry, only kidding.  What they actually did was offer to pay the debts of new coal power stations that go bust. While the Coalition is content to fiddle while the world burns, the good news is the days of coal generation are numbered.  Despite what many politicians seem to believe1, the work of countless dedicated people around the world shows the cost of new renewable energy generation is less than the cost of new coal generation.  This includes enough storage or dispatchable2 generation to meet demand more reliably than coal.  When an old coal power station is shut down it won’t be replaced with new coal...

(WOWK) – When temperatures reach the mid 30s down to just above the freezing mark, the National Weather Service will issue a Frost Advisory so people will know they may need to take care of plants they don’t want to suffer from the cold. What’s important to note here is that frost is a form of freezing water vapor. The catch is, the air temperature may be well above freezing above the ground, but the grass blades or leaf surfaces or tree branches may continue to radiate heat out and the surface temperature can drop to the freezing mark. Here are ways to protect plants from the University of California Division of Agriculture and Natural Resources: Any time there is a frost advisory or hard freeze warning for our area you will see those listed here with county by county info from StormTracker 13.

Of all the screws used for industrial motion control, ball screws rise to the head of the class, offering several advantages over other options such as roller screws and acme screws. Featuring efficiencies of at least 90%, ball screws are one of the most economical ways of converting rotary motion into precision linear motion. They’re able to move heavy loads at fast speeds with outstanding accuracy. Moreover, ball screws can be cost-effective alternatives to pneumatic and hydraulic actuators. A ball screw consists of a threaded shaft and a nut, and either one can act as the traversing component. Ball screws work in a similar fashion to ball bearings, where hardened steel balls move along an inclined-hardened inner and outer race. To select the correct ball screw and nut for a specific application, engineers should consider design factors like loads, life expectancy, speed, length, and mountings. Application considerations include lubrication and en...

Review: HAIX Black Eagle tactical and athletic boots

You don’t have to sacrifice comfort for performance with these German-engineered boots – find out for yourself! Law enforcement is an equipment-dependent profession. We spend quite a bit of time researching our firearms, holsters, vehicles, flashlights, et al. We invest this time in the pursuit of equipment which will help us stay safe and injury free. Do we make the same investment of time in researching our duty boots? Probably not. We should probably start paying a little more attention to some of the most health-critical pieces of equipment we use every day. I recall, a few decades ago, a department in which administration required officers to wear a duty boot with slick outsoles (the part that touches the ground). They wanted to ensure that officers weren’t dragging mud into the building at the end of their shift. Not coincidentally, the department was struggling with how to address an epidemic of fall-related injuries to their officers. Thankfully, times have changed. A duty-grade set of boots should not only protect us from falls, but also against long-term injuries to our feet, hips and back. Budget boots do neither of those things. HAIX (pronounced, “hikes”) star...
