A Rochester Airport security worker has been fired following what she did earlier this summer. First

A Rochester Airport security worker has been fired following what she did earlier this summer. First of all it’s worth clarifying that Rochester Airport doesn’t use the TSA, but rather contracts out to another company, so this wasn’t a TSA agent. A passenger was traveling through the airport in late June, and as he went through the metal detector one of the security guards handed him a note, which said “you ugly” on it. How classy! The way things unfolded, you can see her at roughly the 40 second mark of the video grabbing a note. She then hands it to the guy as he walks through the metal detector — the guy didn’t initially look at the note, but as he walked off the lady allegedly yelled at him “you gonna open the note?” Once he did, she burst out laughing. The guy obtained this video through a Freedom of Information request, which was only recently completed. Apparently he didn’t get very far having formally filed his complaint, so he then posted the video on Reddit, where it went viral. That’s when action was taken against the employee in question. While the security company didn’t initially provide a comment on the incident, the TSA did issue the following statement: “TSA hol...

Homebrewers have more temperature-control options at their fingertips than ever before, and these compact glycol chillers

Homebrewers have more temperature-control options at their fingertips than ever before, and these compact glycol chillers bring professional-level control and speed to even the smallest of setups. PROS: The Stasis offers the most compact and aesthetically pleasing design for the space-constrained brewer. At a very reasonable price point, The Stasis not only includes the chilled reservoir, but has built the pumps and controllers right into the unit. The controllers are simple to operate—set your desired vessel temp and forget it. The much smaller glycol reservoir makes the unit lighter and more portable. CONS: The Stasis is purpose-built to chill one or two smaller vessels (less than 10 gallons) at a time. With its compact design and built-in controllers/pumps, it doesn’t offer the flexibility or the power of the chillers with 10-gallon-plus glycol reservoirs. The unit tested was a pre-production sample, and we’ve been assured that the final will be quieter, but this chiller was significantly louder than the others tested. THE VERDICT: The Stasis is designed and constructed for the 5-gallon homebrewer who never has more than two batches fermenting/crashing at a time. If that’s yo...

Seniorled adds LED high bay UFO to its lighting product line

TheDrive and its partners may earn a commission if you purchase a product through one of our links. Read more. Car care can be a rewarding but frustrating experience. There are countless brands, colors, materials, and sizes of buffing pads—which do you choose? In this guide, we’ll give you the information and tools you need to make an informed decision when it comes to purchasing buffing and finishing pads. Most buffing pads use a hook-and-loop design, which simply refers to how the pad attaches to the backing plate of your buffer. You’ve probably seen the hook-and-loop style before if you’ve ever worked with Velcro—it’s the same concept. Hook-and-loop polishing pads are the most common you’ll see. Cutting pads are rougher and are intended to contact the surface of the paint and create friction/heat when used with cutting compounds. They may also be referred to as compounding pads, though polishing pads fall into this category as well. Typically made of coarser materials, cutting pads must be used in conjunction with polishing pads (and polish) to achieve a swirl-free, sparkling, like-new effect when doing some heavy cutting. Most cutting compounds come in all shapes and sizes, ...

SCHOTT: 50 years of progress — 50 years of innovation

The firm had a long reputation as a manufacturer of precision optical glass used in the world’s finest optics, and the U.S. military had often expressed interest in a domestic source for high quality glasses required for defense purposes. The summer of 1969 was notable for several significant events, including the moon landing and the Woodstock Festival of Peace and Music; Sesame Street debuted, and Richard Nixon was sworn in as president. Amid these historic happenings, SCHOTT North America opened its factory in Duryea. The firm has grown i size and stature from 55,000 square feet to more than 200,000 square feet today and from less than $2 million to more than $50 million in sales over that time span. July 1, 1969 marked the first optical glass melt at the new factory. Since then, many developments have fostered growth and stature within the local and optical communities. Three keys led to the establishment and subsequent growth of the firm: • The foresight of SCHOTT’s management in Germany to act on the obvious demand for a US presence at the urging of the United States military. • The support of the local business community, especially the Greater Pittston Chamber of Commerc...

‘I loved Ivan with all my heart’: David Cameron on losing his son | The Sunday Times Magazine

David Cameron’s son Ivan, who died aged six, was born with a neurological disorder that left him in need of round-the-clock care. In an exclusive extract from his new book, the former prime minister writes about its devastating impact You’re the first, the last, my everything . . .” The lyrics of the Barry White song boomed across the operating theatre from a radio. I’d always been a fan of his music, but I was concerned that it was too loud, and the team of doctors and nurses hovering over Samantha wouldn’t be able to concentrate. I needn’t have worried. Everything went smoothly. And within minutes I was holding our first-born son, Ivan. It was April 8, 2002, and we were in Queen Charlotte’s Hospital in west London. Samantha was having an emergency caesarean, because when her contractions started it turned out that Ivan was “feet first”. In other words, he was the wrong way round in the womb, or what they call an… Get The International Pack for free for your first 30 days for unlimited Smartphone and Tablet access.

Mazak’s VTC-300C FSW Joins, Machines Alloys with Low Melting Points : Modern Machine Shop

A part of Mazak’s family of hybrid multitasking machining centers, the VTC-300C FSW combines milling capabilities with friction stir welding (FSW). A part of Mazak’s family of hybrid multitasking machining centers, the VTC-300C FSW combines milling capabilities with friction stir welding (FSW). With a full traveling-column design, automatic toolchanger and 40-taper spindle in addition to the FSW package, this machine helps shops achieve reduced lead times and greater part accuracy while enabling novel methods for processing parts with stronger welds, the company says. The machine’s FSW package uses a process that involves frictional heat and forging pressure to create full-penetration, defect-free welded joints said to be stronger than those made with conventional methods. Using a solid-state joining process with a non-consumable tool pin, the Mazak FSW head joins two metal plates without melting the workpiece. Commonly considered a forging process, FSW is described as well-suited for joining alloys with low melting points, including aluminum, copper and brass, among others. The new welding technology complements the existing VTC-300C machine platform, which delivers a standard ...

Intrinsic Uncertainty: The Elephant in the Room > ENGINEERING.com

YPE html PUBLIC “-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN” “http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-transitional.dtd”> I’ve written a lot about how we can determine the uncertainty of a measurement. It is often assumed that our confidence in a measurement equates to our confidence that the product being measured conforms to a specification. Unfortunately, this is not the case. Specifications describing the form of components are usually given as Geometric Dimensions and Tolerances (GD&T). These state that all points on a feature must lie within a given tolerance zone. We can, of course, only measure a finite number of points on a surface. If the measured points are within the tolerance zone, we assume the feature conforms, but we don’t know what is happening at all of the unmeasured locations on the surface. This issue doesn’t get talked about much, probably because there isn’t a neat solution to it. In this article, I look at some of the approaches currently being used to deal with it, as well as how it may finally be solved. The Guide to the Expression of Uncertainty in Measurement (GUM)refers to ‘the uncertainty due to variation in the thing we are...
