Locals set to work sewing masks. Will they help fight coronavirus? – News – The Columbus Dispatch

The dining room at Marilyn Elliott’s Pickerington home more resembles an assembly line these days than a gathering spot for family meals. However, the wooden table still remains a place of serving because the 93-year-old, her daughter and granddaughter have spent hours there since last Friday, honing a template for handmade face masks and then fashioning them for the dozens of health care professionals they know. The Elliott women’s charitable operation — the three live in three houses side by side — is just one of hundreds across central Ohio and the nation churning out fabric masks for those who might need them as the new coronavirus spreads and more reports circulate of impending supply shortages. >>> All of The Dispatch’s stories about the coronavirus are being provided free as a public service to readers during the coronavirus outbreak.

Is there ever a bad time to play with one of the best Nerf guns? The

Is there ever a bad time to play with one of the best Nerf guns? The answer, obviously, is no. And the great thing about these shooters is that no one can restrict a Nerf battle to outdoors or just for summertime, as are the unwritten rules of Super Soaker. Nerf can be whipped out all year round and, with some straight-up impressive artillery unleashed onto the toy market, getting one could be the best decision you’ve ever made. Just make sure you hide the expensive china. Gone are the days when you can merely pop to the shops to easily pick from a tiny selection of similar-looking and terribly basic guns. Now, you’ll feel overwhelmed just browsing the hundreds available online, meaning you’ll have to put the time in to find the right shooter for you: whether that’s a pocket-sized sidearm blaster for a quick draw, one of the dozens of mid-range and more powerful war machines to see you right during a prolonged battle, or one of the top-end destroyers that requires both hands to operate or, in some cases, even a tripod stand to use. So, to save you the hassle and inevitable frustration of trying to pick out the best of the best when it comes to finding the right...

While often initially installed for privacy, window treatments do a lot to improve a space’s interior

While often initially installed for privacy, window treatments do a lot to improve a space’s interior design. Curtains help fill out an empty wall, make windows appear larger, and even draw in accent colors from elsewhere in the room. Just as important as the design and texture of the fabric panels themselves is the decision on which hardware you use to hang them. Often, curtain rods are an afterthought, purchased with whatever remains of the budget window treatment budget. Sure, cheap tension rods get the job done, but their lack of style often detracts from the drapes. Metal rods with decorative finials and tiebacks, on the other hand, enhance the fabric with their sheen. For a luxe look on a budget, you’ve got to get creative. We made these with surprisingly simple supplies from the hardware store! By styling wooden dowels to look like copper rods, the DIY curtain rods were so inexpensive (just $12 apiece!) that we had money left over to craft statement-making tiebacks to match. MATERIALS AND TOOLS Available on Amazon (per window) – 1inch wooden dowel – Saw – Sandpaper – Wooden drawer knobs (2) – Contact adhesive – Metal curtain rod brackets that accommodate 1inch rods (2) – ...

Tesla’s claim to have million-mile batteries has been dismissed by critics, but latest research suggests Tesla

Tesla’s claim to have million-mile batteries has been dismissed by critics, but latest research suggests Tesla is already there. Million mile battery life has huge implications for electric robo-taxis, semi trucks and grid storage. The breakthrough to truly long-life lithium batteries appears to be precision control of cathode powder crystal structure and coatings. Long-life, high-density, powerful batteries will open up Tesla’s future promise – and invite competitors – across vehicle and energy markets. The challenge for Tesla and others will be making these batteries at low cost and without cobalt. There is one interesting, small company helping the big players do just that. Bathroom Faucet Black Electric car and energy storage maker Tesla (TSLA) announced back in April that it would soon have million mile car batteries. This like many Tesla claims was met with skepticism by some Shower Door Roller, Shower Door Handle, Shower Door Hinge, Faucets – Leway,https://www.nbleway.com/

Russia orders tech platforms to remove coronavirus “fake news”

A woman wearing a protective mask, used as a measure to prevent the spread of coronavirus disease (COVID-19), stands at a public transport station near a board informing of a nationwide vote on constitutional changes in Stavropol, Russia March 26, 2020. REUTERS/Eduard Korniyenko Disinformation and misinformation around the coronavirus have been rampant on television, in print, and online, especially on social media. And governments are taking notice, especially in Moscow. The Russian government has been actively engaged in spreading disinformation and misinformation around the pandemic. The Kremlin has also been active in ordering internet platforms operating in the country to remove coronavirus “fake news” from their platforms, which follows previous Kremlin efforts to crack down on independent internet sites offering legitimate news. On March 18, Roskomnadzor, Russia’s internet and media regulator, threatened “stringent” action against those services disseminating false information around the coronavirus. Specifically, the announcement pointed to Federal Law No. 149-FZ, which criminalizes the sharing of many different kinds of information online, including that which threatens...

Mayor calls for more security solutions following Westport shooting

KANSAS CITY, Mo. — The shooting Saturday morning in Westport has caused Kansas City, Missouri, Mayor Quinton Lucas to highlight security protocols in the district. Over the past couple years, there have been several efforts to turn the tide of crime. In 2018, the district implemented security checkpoints at all the entrances in the heart of the district. The checkpoints had metal detectors and would only be used on Friday and Saturday nights from 11 p.m. to 3 a.m. between the months of April and October. But this solution wasn’t available for this deadly shooting because it happened when the security protocols weren’t around. The Westport officials Regional Business League issued a statement Saturday afternoon regarding the shooting. “There are no words to express our sadness about an incident like this in our city,” the statement read. “While the incident occurred outside where enhanced screening is performed, the screenings are not conducted in the wintertime, when outdoor crowds are typically smaller. The screenings will resume in the spring.” “In Westport, we tried some, we vacated the sidewalks, we come up with a crime fighting stra...
