Fans: Various Noiseblocker fans 25 in total. Lets start off then. Solid drawing Let's weld. Starting off with the basic shape. Table will be roughly 1800x780mm Radiator bay: Parts started to come in After a few more hours I have room for my legs and some placement for the fans http://i.imgur.com/UKIGtMk.jpg Space for knees Gonna want some monitoring The wood was ordered like this. Huge chunks of birch. The will be shaped to be the outer panels of the chassi. It's a really dense wood and it's been dried for years properly before being used. Quite heavy actually. These 3 parts weigh about 50kgs or about 110 pounds After using different bits and sanding roughly down ending at about 320 grit paper I managed to shape them to the shape I desired. Playing around a bit with some of the parts. That's an ST8 Motherboard tray from a caselabs pc

Like all the other “unrecognizedvillages in the Negev, they are provided with no mains electricity, no paved roads, no water, no sanitation. They have to do their best buying water from tankers and using solar panels for intermittent power. Screenshot of Goldog website, a dog kennel and cemetery located in the Negev. Goldog has electricity while their Bedouin neighbors do not. This is not because it is remote. On the contrary, the Jewish owner of a dog kennel only 875 yards (800 meters) away is provided with all mod cons. The Israelis do this solely to make life difficult for Arab villagers so they will move. And it is not a question of money. Often if the villagers try to pave the roads, army bulldozers break them up; if they install water pipes, they are disconnected; if they build stone houses, they are demolished. The Israelis want the buildings to look temporary, ramshackle, worthless.

The tail hump, belly pan, and various other body panels are all carbon fiber numbers. The fuel tank's outer is carbon too, but there's an aluminum reservoir hiding underneath. Lazareth designed the tank to taper towards the seat, offering the rider a glimpse of the velocity stacks doing duty below. Other superbike-worthy upgrades include Brembo brakes, and an array of high-quality Rizoma parts. The cockpit's sporting drag bars, bar-end mirrors and an Acewell digital speedo. According to Lazareth the R1 handles like any other street bike on the road—but turns heads like nothing else. If you'd like to test that theory, he'll let it go for a cool50,000—which is $53,000 if you live on the other side of the Atlantic. Pricey? Oui. But you can guarantee there will never be anything else on the road like it, ever. And in a cookie cutter custom world, that's got to be worth a lot.

This is an incredible engineering challenge. The satellites need to be self sufficient, able to orient themselves correctly, be able to survive the trip from one planet to another, and have the radio equipment necessary to communicate over that distance. This is where the team Nacer works with comes into the picture. Antenna engineers and mechanical engineers work together with the rest of the CubeSat teams to design and build the communications array. In this case, a brand new radio called IRIS was developed to help meet the power and size constraints. There almost no room inside the vehicle left for an antenna array so the reflectors were built to fold flat on the outside of the vehicle. The UHF antenna, which communicates with the Mars ground vehicles, sits flat on the bottom of the satellite but pops out like a jack-in-the-box. The X-band antenna that transmits back to earth folds into three panels.

NEW DELHI: Equipped with cushioned seats, aluminium composite panels, and LED lights, the Antyodaya Express, a new fully unreserved train for the common man with specially designed colourful coaches was unveiled today by Railway Minister Suresh Prabhu. Ready to be pressed into service on busy routes, the first Antyodaya Express will be launched between Mumbai and Tatanagar, and the second will be between Ernakulam and Howrah shortly. "We had announced in the Rail Budget that we would launch four new passenger services. First Humsafar was launched and now Antyodaya," Prabhu said after inspecting the new general class coaches with new colour scheme that are equipped with many facilities like water purifiers, mobile phone charging points and fire extinguishers. "Antyodaya was meant for Aam Aadmi (common man). The facilities provided in Antyodaya coaches are similar in first class.

The body panels are made entirely of carbonfibre, and the car is expected to have a kerb weight which will undercut the Volkswagen Group’s other V10-engined supercar models — the R8 and the Lamborghini Aventador — which weigh 1595kg and 1575kg respectively. The overall impression of the styling is of a modernised Lancia Stratos, although Italdesign’s supercar is more than a metre longer. It is similar in footprint to the Lamborghini Aventador, at 4.87 metres in overall length. The relationship with Lamborghini is far from coincidental, given that it was Audi-owned Lamborghini that completed a purchase of Italdesign in 2015, having bought a 90% interest from the Giugiaro family five years earlier. The new car’s engineers are revealing little about the provenance of their new car’s underpinnings, confirming only that it uses “a modular chassis in carbonfibre and aluminium”.

Cash is what we seek to eliminate.” +++ The omnipresent desire of the financial inclusion community to eliminate cash, and be it by coercion, is a clear case, where the interests of the poor diverge from the interests of the payment providers. The poor will always do better if they get more and better options, e.g. if they get access to attractive mobile payment methods (which are not overpaid and not packed with hidden fees and bundled with unnecessary services). However, if the option of using cash – a very accessible, reliable and cheap technology for them is taken away from them, as happened in India and on a smaller scale in other countries like Nigeria, they will be worse off. The payment providers however, will benefit. Since it helps their business and furthers the security interests of the US, the various groups and panels advocatingfinancial inclusionsupport financial exclusion of poor people by preventing them from using their preferred and often only means of payment.

Online design community Coroflot were interested in developing a space that reflected their creative community while also keeping mobility in mind and the result is their Mobile Work Unit (MWU) . It's a clever office on wheels that was designed in collaboration with Portland-based LOS OSOS who took a new approach when it came time for the construction. The MWU is parked inside an old ambulance garage in downtown Portland that's now home to Hand-Eye Supply. Built on a trailer, they used post-and-beam construction which allowed for the use of polycarbonate panels as walls. That allows light to fill the space while providing some semblance of separation. They paired the translucent walls with locally sourced, kiln-dried Douglas fir for the structure. In addition, a bold, vibrant color was incorporated as an accent. mg class="alignnone size-large wp-image-294267" src="http://2.

“Over 20 million will lose coverage and with all due respect, sir, you’re the man who talked about the death panels. You’re going to create one great big death panel in this country for people can’t afford to get insurance.” Back in 2009, Grassley accused Democrats of crafting legislation that would allow the government to “decide when to pull the plug on grandma.” That fed into fears of what Sarah Palin and others calleddeath panels.” There’s no such thing in the health law, but the line inflamed fears of rationing and ignited the intense opposition to Obamacare that remains to this day. On Tuesday, Grassley tried to reassure the crowd that packed the community hall, saying that three of the four main GOP health care plans circulating on Capitol Hill would preserve Obamacare’s most popular provisions: pre-existing condition protections, the prohibition on lifetime limits and the ability of young adults to stay on their parentshealth care plans.

S. election aimed at helping Trump win. Flynn had led Pence and other Trump aides to believe there had been been no such talk about the Obama sanctions, with Pence then publicly relating the erroneous information on a news talk show. Trump denied that he had directed Flynn to discuss the sanctions with Kislyak, but added, "I would have." The president said Flynn was doing his job to make contact with foreign officials ahead of the new administration taking power. While several congressional panels, chiefly the intelligence committees in both the Senate and House of Representatives, are looking into those and other alleged contacts between Trump aides and Russia, the chairman of the House's main investigative committee has asked the U.S. Justice Department to launch an investigation into the leaks surrounding the Flynn-Kislyak calls. "We have serious concerns about the potential inadequate protection of classified information here," said Utah congressman Jason Chaffetz.

The C-Aircross Concept also promises new interior tech and interior design, with a cabin space that’s just as wild, if not wilder, than the exterior. And why not? Crossovers and SUVs continue to surge in popularity in a variety of markets, so the transition from MPV to SUV makes a lot of sense for the brand, especially with a (relatively) fresh design for the exterior panels and interior space. Linda Jackson, Citroen’s CEO, had this to say – “The C-Aircross Concept demonstrates Citroen’s pursuit of its international product offensive. Based on the state-of-mind of New C3, it illustrates a different vision for the compact SUV segment, full of confidence and boldness.” Although Citroen has expressed interest in tackling the U.S. market sometime in the future, the production variant of this concept will almost certainly not make it stateside. That said, interested European customers will likely get an eyeful with a debut sometime this fall, while an on-sale date will likely follow before the end of the year.

KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo and other sources have claimed the Apple Watch could gain an LTE chip for cellular capabilities as early as 2017, while a supply chain report last year said Apple may switch from OLED to micro-LED displays for the Apple Watch in the second half of 2017 at the earliest. Micro-LED displays have benefits such as thinness, lightness, improved color gamut, increased brightness, and higher resolutions. The panels do not require backlighting like traditional LCD displays, but they can be difficult and expensive to mass produce. Micro LEDs range in size from 1-micron to 100-micron. Apple has filed patents for a number of ideas that could eventually be included in an Apple Watch, such as a heart rate identification system , modular bands , haptic feedback band , and a band with a built-in charger . More significant health and fitness features could be added pending further FDA approvals.
