Sensitive teeth can be repaired. You have the sensitivity because you've lost the protective layer on the top of the tooth, which has exposed these micro-holes in the sensitive part of the teeth. Sensodyne Repair Protect provides a hard layer, which gives a strong repair for sensitive teeth.

The appearance of small bodies in the outer solar system could be deceiving. Asteroids and dwarf planets may be camouflaged with an outer layer of material that actually comes from somewhere else.

Sen. John Cornyn (R-Texas), the majority whip, said that as far as he’s concerned, the crisis of confidence is about to give way to confidence in Trump. “I think the best indication is the quality of the people that he’s nominated to his cabinet and who he’s selected as his vice president,” Cornyn said. “They understand both the political and the practical challenges of getting things done, and I’m very optimistic.” But to Cornett, the presence of so many unconventional, untested cabinet nominees adds another layer of mystery for what’s ahead. “He's chosen a cabinet that is a little bit out of the mainstream,” he said. “Not questioning the quality of the people, I'm just saying they have a little bit different résumés than the people who've held these positions before.” Still, most Republicans shrug, chuckle, shake their heads at Trump. They’re happy with his cabinet appointments, at least.

Down in the forest, something stirred EVERY 11 years or so, a new sunspot cycle begins. Sunspots are apparent blemishes in the sun’s photosphere, the layer which emits its light. Though still hot (about 3,500°C), they are cooler than their surroundings (about 5,500°C) and thus appear dark by contrast. A cycle starts with spots appearing at mid-latitudes in both northern and southern hemispheres. Over time, the spot-generating areas migrate towards the equator. As they do so, the amount of light and other radiation the sun emits first increases to a maximum and then decreases to a minimum, until the spots vanish and the cycle renews. On Earth, the increased illumination of solar maxima drives photosynthesis, and thus plant growth. That permits botanists to use treesannual growth rings to work out what sunspot activity was like hundreds, and occasionally thousands, of years ago.

We also have two electrodes usually made of carbon, an electrolyte and a separator that allows the transfer of ions in the electrolyte. When voltage is applied to the electrodes, positive ions diffuse to the negative electrode and negative ones to the positive electrode. Electric charge accumulates at the surface of each electrode, forming a double layer (hence the name electric double-layer capacitor). Each double layer works as the simple capacitor we explained before, but we have one at each electrode. Therefore the supercapacitor is effectively two capacitors in series by design. But why is capacitance so large in a supercapacitor compared to a normal one? The capacitance (which is proportional to the energy that can be stored) is directly proportional to the plate area and inversely proportional to the plate separation. In a normal capacitor, the plate separation is the thickness of the dielectric on the order of tens of microns while in a supercap that distance is on the order on nanometers (one-thousandth of a micron).

From telegraph wires to skyscrapers, urban worlds are full of sights that were at one time alien. “If we went back to the days before cars and exposed people to the level of exhaust fumes that we currently get in most places, they’d probably be horrified,” says Westlake. “But we accept that, because most cities probably wouldn't run without cars. We forget the days when cities were full of horses – how basically cities stank of horse shit all the time. “So the sea of drones in the sky may be something that is shocking to us, but in 15 years’ time may be what cities are like.” "Motopia was never built. But the Westway was."

Let's get it out of the way right up front: you still need to etch the boards. However, [Mikey77] found that flexible plastic (Ninjaflex) will adhere to a bare copper board if the initial layer height is set just right. By printing on a thin piece of copper or conductive fabric, a resist layer forms. After that, it is just simple etching to create a PCB. [Mikey77] used ferric chloride, but other etchants ought to work, as well. Sound simple, but as usual, the devil is in the details . [Mikey77] found that for some reason white Ninjaflex stuck best. The PCB has to be stuck totally flat to the bed, and he uses spray adhesive to do that. Just printing with flexible filament can be a challenge. You need a totally constrained filament path, for one thing. There are several other tricks. The fabric PCBs are very flexible, although that has nothing to do with the flexible plastic, which is all removed after etching.

Real-time access to new types and sources of information -- as well as the tools to analyze it -- provides exactly that. Analyzing the Analysts -- and the Analysis When crowdsourcing analysis and complex forecasts, the size of the crowd isn't everything. The product is inherently subjective and therefore requires second-order analysis. This means we should look at not just what the crowd says, but who in the crowd is saying it and why. The weight given to each contributor and their analysis must differ depending on the purpose of the exercise. For certain purposes, one may wish to compare and contrast opinions of different group types. Given the above, we soon will witness the introduction of discourse analysis tools for crowdsourcing managers. Another layer of insights will thus be added to the results of a crowdsourced exercise. We call this "big knowledge" -- i.

Global News reports that an arena roof caved in during a game. Here's a scary video. No one was hurt. It is not clear why the roof suddenly collapsed, arena designer Tomas Fris told reporters, adding that all construction standards were observed. There was a 25-centimetre layer of snow on the roof before the accident, but Fris said the snow could not have caused the collapse.

A small, family-run business has come up with a metal printer that it thinks will transform manufacturing. The MK1 metal printer works by melting aluminum into a molten form, and then using a magnetic field to eject droplets of the substance onto a moving plate, which maneuvers around to create the desired 3D shape. That differs from other metal printers, which lay down a layer of powdered metal and melt it with a laser or electron beam, a process called powder bed fusion. In this process, there's a chance that some particles of the powder do not get melted, creating weak spots. Zack Vader is the CTO and co-founder of Vader Systems and says he came up with the idea of making a metal printer after he failed to find a company that was capable of printing a microturbine generator he needed for a project. So with the help of his father, Scott, and alma mater, the University at Buffalo, he set out to build his own. To read this article in full or to leave a comment, please click here

Then on the case I first peeled the foam off the front cover then CNC cut some patterns on the front backed with painted mod mesh for some enhanced front airflow for the radiator to be placed in the front of the case. The next mod was a magnetic power supply shroud made of laser cut acrylic for the front of the case. I used 1/8" red for the base and 1/16" black on top to fit flush right behind the tempered glass. The Top layer caps the magnets and allow them to be glued in place. After that I installed the radiator, and made a custom grill with 2 layers of laser cut acrylic glued together. Moving right along with the watercooling I made 2 of my favorite things to make, water manifolds! I went with the glued style this time because of time constraints and I didn't want to worry about possible o-ring leaks or anything. I pocketed out the base which was .

The Internet is rife with conspiracy theories about lip balm. Some claim it's addictive, while others argue popular products are loaded with ingredients that actually promote chapped lipstherefore ensuring you buy more balm. Experts say many of those rumorsmany, but not allare either exaggerated or silly. But to understand lip balms pros and cons, it helps to recognize your lips unique characteristics. As far as skin goes, your lips are oddballs. Unlike your arms, legs and torso, your lips are covered in transitional skin that lacks a stratum corneum: a tough outer layer, explains Dr. Zoe Draelos, a North Carolina-based dermatologist and researcher. This is why your lips look red compared to the rest of your face, she says. Draelos says lip skin is similar to the inner lining of your mouth and nose.

Owners value talent over management. Coaches still matter, as does the top talent, but as the Dallas Cowboys showed us this year, great teams can survive and even excel despite the loss of superstar players. Empowered teams develop a talent for mutual adaptation, knowing each others moves so well that great plays happen. They create inspired results that are more creative than the original design. How can agencies mimic them? Think the way they do. Here are a few questions to get started: 1. Can we recognize and reward without making another manager? Successful football players dont get promoted to coach. They get rewarded through richer contracts and recognition that builds personal capital and a sense of worth. 2. Can we substitute a depth chart for our org chart? Its not a coincidence that the NFL model is more layer cake than pyramid.

Azarga Metals Corp (CVE:AZR) is continuing with exploration work at its 60%-owned Unkur copper-silver project in the Zabaikalsky region of eastern Russia. The most recent work completed was a ground magnetic survey, the results of which were released in January 2017 and which added an extra layer of knowledge on that gleaned from last year’s drilling programme. Some of the results from these were labelled by chief executive Dusty Nicol as “extraordinary.” Historically large copper-silver project at Unkur Historical data, some of which dates back further than 40 years, suggests that Unkur has the potential to be a globally significant silver and copper project, both in terms of size and grade. The most recent Russian resource estimate reckoned Unkur to contain 173,400 tonnes of copper in over 20 million tonnes of ore at grades running at an average of 0.
