Hyundai has presented an alternative look at the Veloster, one that puts an off-road spin to the otherwise plucky hatchback. The model, called the Veloster Grappler Concept, is sporty, rugged, and can go anywhere your heart desires. It will be presented at the 2019 SEMA Auto Show, but like most concepts that attend SEMA, there’s no indication that the Veloster Grappler, or even a derivative of the concept, will end up in production. All the same, the Veloster Grappler Concept looks like it’s ready to hit the trails. By the looks of it, the concept would make for a great companion in the outdoors. Hyundai’s little hatchback just received an incredible makeover to the extent that I didn’t recognize it as the Veloster at first. Make no mistake, folks. The Veloster isn’t suffering from an identity crisis; it’s showcasing a new level of purpose that many people either didn’t see before or just didn’t know existed. The headlights are the same. The quirky shape of the hatchback remains the same. Even the cuts and body lines are intact. Hyundai didn’t try to alter the Veloster’s physical makeup. What it did was reinvent its purpose with enough new parts and equipment to create a far mor...

If consumers knew how farmed chickens were raised, they might never eat their meat again | Environment

The year 2012 marked a leap forward for animal welfare in the European Union. Farmers were no longer allowed to keep egg-laying hens in barren battery cages smaller than an A4 sheet of paper. Instead, the minimum requirement now is that hens are kept in a cage the size of an A4 sheet of paper, with an extra postcard-sized bit of shared space that allows them to scratch and nest. These are known as enriched cages. Animal welfare campaigners would like to see them abolished too, saying they barely make a difference to the birds’ ability to express their natural behaviour and live free from stress. Around half of the eggs we eat are still produced in caged systems. Full debeaking to prevent hens pecking each other is no longer allowed either, but beak clipping is still permitted in egg-laying hens. Their primary sensory organ is typically clipped at a day old, whether caged or free range. Progress here is that farmers must now use infrared lasers to carry out the process rather than the hot blade of previous days. It is cleaner but remains painful to the bird. Industrial egg-laying hens have been bred to produce more and faster, laying about 320 eggs over a life span of about 72 we...

A Farm Organizer Visits Fish Country: An Alaska Journal, Part II

Salmon is the most valuable commercial fishery managed by the State of Alaska. Fewer than one million acres (of Alaska’s 365 million) are farmed.   (Photo: Severine von Tscharner Fleming) Editor’s note: Severine Von Tscharnar Fleming was invited to Alaska to study the commons and speak to young people on behalf of the Alaska Marine Conservation Council and the Alaska Food Policy Council. Part two of her three part report continues here. (Read An Alaska Journal Part I) What is it about the ruthless sea? An acculturation in agricultural landscapes, full of flower buds, dewdrops, fresh hay, kittens and baby lambs cannot prepare you for the hard, chilling mechanics of a mechanized fish harvest. To my tender agrarian eyes, the fishing business is brutal. We may call them “stewards of the ocean” but lets face it—they are killing fish. The vessels themselves vary a lot in size—from combine, to dump truck to barn size—with hydraulics overhead and $60,000-plus nets piled up waiting for use. The fish get hauled in and killed by the dozens of tons by hulking large steel vessels—machines out back, overhead, swinging in the air, these vessels barely accommodate the needs of the ...

When it’s hot outside, sometimes you need a little help cooling your home down. As such, it

When it’s hot outside, sometimes you need a little help cooling your home down. As such, it might be time to start looking for a new window-mounted air conditioner to keep your home nice and cool, so that you don’t roast over the summer months. Of course, there are a ton of window air conditioners to choose from, and they’re not all worth buying. Some are simply lower quality and won’t last as long as others that are better-built and more energy-efficient. There are a number of things to consider when you’re buying a window air conditioner, and you’ll want to think about them before you buy to ensure that you get the best quality. For starters, you’ll want to consider the air conditioner’s BTU – or “British Thermal Unit.” The higher the number here, the better the unit will be able to remove heat from the room. But a higher BTU also means it will likely consume a little more energy. Check out the list below to figure out the BTU rating you’ll need depending on how large your room is. Figures are courtesy of Lowes. You’ll also want to think about the air conditioner’s energy efficiency rating, noise lev...

The Nationals and their fans have been chomping along to “Baby Shark” since shortly after reserve

The Nationals and their fans have been chomping along to “Baby Shark” since shortly after reserve outfielder Gerardo Parra made the children’s tune his walk-up song, in honor of his 2-year-old daughter, on June 19. Monday’s Game 3 of the National League Championship Series featured a new addition to one of the more amusing rituals in baseball: a stuffed baby shark hanging from the railing of the Nationals’ dugout. Parra, who wore his usual orange-tinted sunglasses, was seen playing with the toy, which was visible most times TBS’s cameras showed a Nationals player who just recorded a hit turning toward the dugout to give the appropriate “Baby Shark” hand signal to his teammates. The Nationals recorded a lot of hits against Cardinals starter Jack Flaherty, tagging the ace for four runs through four innings en route to an 8-1 win that gave Washington a commanding 3-0 lead in the best-of-seven series. #BabyShark and #CaptainObvious give all us NATS fans life!!! And what an AMAZING game this is!!! 8-1 in the 8th!!! #LETSGONATS @Nationals @NatsCaptObvious #Natitude pic.twitter.com/opDbCtO1qd why yes, that is indeed Gerardo Parra harnessing the energy of a stuffed baby shark hanging on...

This story was written in collaboration with Forbes Finds. Forbes Finds covers products and experiences we think you’ll love. Featured products are independently selected and linked to for your convenience. If you buy something using a link on this page, Forbes may receive a small share of that sale. There is nothing better than riding around in a squeaky-clean car, especially if you detail it yourself. The key is to use the right products. It can save you time, prevent costly damage, and ultimately yield a much better result. You’ll need a dedicated car washer, wheel cleaner and wax. Bug and tar remover would also come in handy but aren’t necessary. And that’s just for the exterior—plan on buying a carpet cleaner, glass cleaner, vacuum and leather or vinyl cleaner, too, for the interior. The first step to washing a car properly is to thoroughly hose it down to remove loose contaminants, such as dust, dirt and mud. Then, roll up your sleeves and start scrubbing. Use at least two buckets: one filled with clean, soapy water and another with just water to rinse off your cleaning mitt. You don’t want to wash your car with dirty water or a dirty mitt. Th...

10 Reasons to Use Duct Rodder in Cable Television Industries

Science and technology are always moving in a direction that will make human life easier as well as facilitating production. Technology is always supposed to serve people, but during overhaul or installation of a circuit; workers are always faced with threading work, which is troublesome, complicated and prone to errors. It is something which gave workers lots of problems until the duct rodder cable placing equipment was born. Duct rodder, which is also known as fiberglass conduit rodder, is an exceptional cable pulling machine. When the surface is resilient and smooth, the piercing is easier and allows easy passing through narrow pipelines. Why should you use duct rodder in cable television industries? Here are ten reasons why. When laying cables for cable television industries, you should go for a duct rodder that is resistant to factors such as corrosion due to acids or alkalis. Duct rodders are lightweight and also aging resistant. They are features that make them perfect to use in cable television industries as cable placing equipment. Duct rodder bending properties and high tensile strength make it capable of going through narrow pipes with ease. It is a good thing because...

E-scooters, hoverboards – the tech transforming travel

Electric scooters and other new modes of transport could be allowed on Britain’s roads under a wide-ranging review. It is currently illegal to ride powered scooters – which can travel up to 30mph – on public roads or pavements, but the government has said the traffic laws are “a barrier to innovation” and is considering changing them. That’s the headline anyway. The Department for Transport has subsequently played down the possibility of reform in the short term. Nevertheless, the sustainable transport charity Sustrans says there is a “huge untapped demand for people to get around without a car”. But under the UK’s Highways Act 1835, footpaths can only be used by pedestrians – the driving of any “horse, ass, sheep, mule, swine, or cattle or carriage of any description” is banned. And electric scooters fall within the legal definition of a “motor vehicle”, which means they cannot be used on public roads without meeting a number of requirements, which include conforming to technical standards and being subject to driver testing. The Department for Transport says prospective users “find it ver...

Last year was a high-water mark for drug approvals, with the U.S. Food & Drug Administration

Last year was a high-water mark for drug approvals, with the U.S. Food & Drug Administration green-lighting 46 new molecular entities. By mid-June, FDA had given its nod to as many new molecules as were approved in all of 2016. The 2017 number surpassed the nearly 20-year peak reached in 2015, when drug companies pushed through 45 new products. Cancer treatments represented just over a quarter of all new molecules approved last year, though many work by the same mechanism of action as already-marketed drugs do. Those include two more CDK4/6 inhibitors, two more PD-L1 inhibitors, and more compounds that block the proteins PARP, BTK, and ALK. Rare diseases also continued to be a focal point for drug developers. Some 41% of new drugs approved in 2017 had “orphan” status, granted to treatments for diseases that affect fewer than 200,000 people. Although the biotech industry has been energized by the potential for new technologies and therapeutic modalities to tackle difficult-to-treat diseases, small molecules continue to dominate FDA’s docket. Conventional small-molecule drugs represented almost two-thirds of the new molecular entities approved last year. Antide Acetate Gmp Su...
