We're shown a previous generation Tesla pack for comparison, that is much smaller. Eye-watering performance and range come at a price, and we're seeing it here in front of us. The standard of construction appears to be very high indeed, which makes sense as this is not merely a performance part but a safety critical one. Owners of mobile phones beset by fires will testify to this, and the Tesla's capacity for conflagration or electrical hazard is proportionately larger. The chassis and outer cover are held together by a huge array of bolts and Torx screws, and as they comment, each one is marked as having been tightened to a particular torque setting. Under the cover is a second cover that is glued down, this needs to be carefully pried off to reveal the modules and their cells. The coolant is drained, and the modules disconnected. This last task is particularly hazardous, as the pack delivers hundreds of volts DC at a very low impedance.

Of course, the big feature is the addition of WiFi and Bluetooth. The Pi Zero W adds the wireless functionality from the Raspberry Pi 3B. That's 802.11n and Bluetooth 4.0. The Pi Zero's claim to fame was, of course, the price. The original Pi Zero was at first a bit of hardware glued to the cover of the MagPi magazine, later to sell for just $5 USD. The Raspberry Pi Zero W is priced at just $10. See that triangle shape below the CPU? That's the antenna. What's changed in the Pi Zero W? Unless you're looking at the PCB from the angle of RF design, not much. The big change here is the addition of WiFi and Bluetooth. This hardware comes directly from the Raspberry Pi 3B. Encased in a fancy, glassy chip and attached to the board through weird curvy RF traces, both of these Pis have 802.11n and Bluetooth 4.0. As with the Pi 3, the Pi Zero W doesn't suffer from photonic reset of the wireless subsystem when exposed to a laser.

The three holes on the right one will have taps for the air flow of the water feature. These next two are all I have of me cutting the holes in the motherboard tray, because it was not such a fun process with just a stanley knife. You can see the basic box underneath being used as a cutting board, as it will be veneered in the end and I'm in my bedroom... These are the side panels being made/completed The motherboard tray is glued in, with the side panels being test fitted. They are held in by magnets Painting the inside... Painting done, with another test fit Starting to veneer the outsides with olivewood. Not the cheapest so being careful as I have no workbench or clamps etc. Best I can do is a desk and a heavy flight case. Last pic shows a nice idea of the direction it's taking That's all for now! It won't be long till more. Thanks for taking an interest!

Elements like chips and LEDs can simply be sandwiched between two nanosheets, rather than chemically bonded or glued into place - a process known, wonderfully, as "sandwich fixation". Bulky Wearables To test their inventions, they built a digital tattoo and stuck it to some artificial skin, where it stayed in place and operating for several days. It's hoped that digital tattoos of this sort could one day replace the bulky wearables we have today, as well as proving useful in the fields of medicine, healthcare and sports training. The full details of the discoveries were published in the Journal of Materials Chemistry. This 3D display is made from laser-generated bubbles

I was experiencing what parents worldwide are going through watching kids scroll through life, says American physician and filmmaker Delaney Ruston, on the phone from New York. Her concerns over her two teenage childrens growing exposure to screens (PCs, video games, smartphones) started when her daughter Tessa asked for a smartphone. I felt guilty and confused and was unsure about what limits were best, especially around mobile phones, social media, gaming,...

The non-Apple shopping bags have twine-like handles glued between strips of paper. In the Abercrombie Fitch bag the handles disappear into slots. The mid-range bags have shoelace handles that are knotted on the inside. The Apple bag has knit handles that are made from paper. They don't feel softer in the hand than the shoelace handles but they do feel more substantial. They disappear into the bag through these half-moon cutouts and are reinforced on the inside. The top of the bag feels quite strong and I'm certain that if this were to fail, it wouldn't be at the handles. (This drawing is a cross-section of 9-9 shown in Fig. 1) I'm a longtime Apple user, but the company no longer holds the magic for me that it once did. I find their products aren't any easier to use compared to competitors and their software is non-intuitive, clunky and buggy.

Video of Ball-rolling bees reveal complex learning See related This drone could pollinate your entire garden Animal migration tracking: how did we get to bee backpacks? Bees are now officially an American endangered species for the first time Now the really interesting bit: with three different balls set at varying distances to the hole, bees invariably picked the closest one, even when they had been trained with nearby balls glued down. This means they werent just imitating what they had seen before: the bees were learning generalised patterns to solve problems more easily. “The bees solved the task in a different way than what was demonstrated, suggesting that observer bees did not simply copy what they saw, but improved on it.,” Loukola explained. “This shows an impressive amount of cognitive flexibility, especially for an insect.” "It may be that bumblebees, along with many other animals, have the cognitive capabilities to solve such complex tasks, but will only do so if environmental pressures are applied to necessitate such behaviours.

WALKER: And as I hear these stories, I think to myself, been there, seen that. (LAUGHTER) You know, from our standpoint it's exactly why we've been talking, not only here today, but to people over the last few months all across this great country, reminding our leaders about what happened in Wisconsin. About why we did what we did. And most importantly, about what's happened since. So let me share it with you a little bit here. In fact, I was reminded of late about that just two weeks ago tomorrow so less than two weeks ago, it was two weeks ago tomorrow that I saw the video of protesters trying to stop the new U.S. Secretary of Education from going into a public school, just up the way here in the District of Columbia. And so I called Betsy DeVos, who's a good friend of mine, and I said, you know what, been there, done that. (LAUGHTER) You don't happen to remember in the midst of our protest the protesters as outrageous and radical as they were, they literally glued the door shut to an elementary school where I was going to come and read to the children.

Nearly 90 percent of Americans say they “constantly or often” check their email, texts and social media accounts leading to increased stress, according to a report from the American Psychological Association (APA). Those who said they checked constantly showed, on average, higher stress levels than those who checked less often. Using a 10-point scale, where one is “little or no stress” and 10 is “a great deal of stress,” constant checkers reported a 5.3 stress level compared to 4.4 for those who were less glued to their smartphones. Working Americans who check their work email on days off reported a stress level of 6. “The emergence of mobile devices and social networks over the last decade has certainly changed the way Americans live and communicate on a daily basis,” said Lynn Bufka, PhD, APA’s associate executive director for practice research and policy.

To that end, what you’re looking at is an air-suspended styrofoam ball sensitive enough to measure the tiny movement of six individual ant legs using optical mouse sensors. The ants themselves were tethered to the ball with tiny leashes made from the filament of dental floss glued to their backs. This is what that looks like in action: via GIPHY So what did the researchers find? Initially, when the ants think they know where they’re going, they march in one direction in a determined mannerusing navigation techniques that past studies had revealed ( the position of the sun and step counting are two that we know of). Of course, on a treadmill ants will never actually hit the nest, and the researchers noticed that when the ants failed to find their nests, they would switch to “search mode”, where they slow down and move around in a looping pattern.

Seasons on Amazon Prime: 1 (third season) Sneaky Pete's plot maybe a little cliche - a con man assumes the identity of someone else to try and make a new break in the world - but Giovanni Ribisi is superb as Marius, the titular character and there's plenty of intrigue to keep you glued to this new Amazon Original. Interestingly, the show is co-created by Bryan Cranston which makes him the streaming king, given he's done so well with Breaking Bad on Netflix. Don't expect Sneaky Pete to be as intense as Breaking Bad - it's a crime caper, yes, but it doesn't take itself too seriously. Seemingly always vying for the top spot of Best Recently Finished Drama (we may have made up that award) with Breaking Bad, Sons Of Anarchy is a long brooding menace of a show that deserves your attention. Centred on a motorcycle gang that live by their own rules (you can probably guess what their name is from the title) the show is positively Shakespearean in its storytelling and will have you gripped from episode one.

We start this evening with the claw hammer which is Number 32 and is secured in the top till by a brass spring clip. The manufacturer's imprint is on one cheek of the hammer and the other side is stamped "USVA". The latter stands for The US Veterans Administration. They were used at The VA Hospital in St. Louis, Missouri. Thank you for sharing your knowledge about a tool if you have information on it. The subject clawhammer is in the top till. The imprint has been damaged but it appears to read, "C. OGDEN, NEW YORK". The "C" is somewhat questionable. You can see the original inventory number stamp, "32", on the wooden handle right behind the head. The other side of the hammer head is stamped, "USVA". Next I continued cleaning and stabilizing tools in the top till. Here I'll show you the three little Stanley Hurwood screwdrivers and two awls. The three screwdrivers are on the upper left of the photo below, each one in a spring clip with their tips in slots in a piece of wood glued in the end of the till.

Restoration artists in Rome restored two sculptures from a museum in the Syrian town of Palmyra after they were damaged by militants from the so-called Islamic State (IS; formerly ISIS/ISIL), at the Italian Institute for Conservation and Restoration, Thursday. Francesco Rutelli, former Mayor of Rome (English): "I think the importance initially is that we do not accept that the last word is given to terrorists. If they want to destroy there will always be somebody able to rebuild. There can be rebirth for cultural heritage." Antonio Laccarino Idelson, restoration artist (English): "What we did was reconstruction for the fragments which were glued back to their original position. And then with a 3D scan of the whole head we were able to divide the head into two symmetric part, and then with a mathematical operation we were able to mirror the existing part on the missing part, so that basically we were able to extract the shape of the Lacuna and print it in plastic.

Emma Sims 2 min 51 sec ago Life Culture Why did the millennial cross the road? Because these pavement lights told him it was permissible to do so A town in the Netherlands has installed LED traffic lights in its pavements in order to prevent entranced smartphone users from meeting a premature demise. The light strips, which resemble lightsabers ensconced in concrete, are designed to catch the attention of pedestrians who would otherwise be glued to their social media feed. It’s a story worthy of r/NotTheOnion , Reddit’s home for news stories that are implausible enough to be confused with satire. Or maybe The Week’s ‘Spirit of the Age’, which lambasts and lampoons ridiculous present day practices (think English schools offeringmindfulnessclasses in lieu of good old-fashioned cross country). Dutch road safety group VVN was also sceptical of the idea, arguing that it “rewards bad behaviour”.

Among the innovations made by the Philadelphia Furniture Workshop in our vise—a narrow shelf is glued on the back of the rear jaw to create a clamping ledge so that you can clamp your tails down firmly when you lay out your pins. The way our kit works is that the two acme screws thread into two nuts mortised into the back jaw of the vise. Just locate the holes far enough from the bottom so the nuts have enough clearance and first drill the holes and then mortise away. The nuts we use are custom for the vise and are offset. We found that, especially with a sloppy mortise, a regular nut can spin in the mortises as the vise wears. This design gives you plenty of room for error and you won't have to worry about wear. The front jaw can be as thin as 4/4 but here again the Philadelphia furniture workshop design has a great innovation. The inside of the jaw is slightly cambered so even if the jaws are tightened unevenly the vise will hold in the center perfectly.
