United States Consul-General Commercial Representative, Ms Christine Kelly (left); United States Commercial Specialist, Anthony Adesina and President, Ibadan Business School, Asiwaju Yinka Fasuyi at the Networking programme for USA in Ibadan…yesterday. Visitors at the United States Consulate, Victoria Island, Lagos, were compelled to vacate the main building yesterday following a security threat. The evacuation, which happened at about 12.20 p.m., was the climax of repeated radio warnings that began a few minutes earlier. Visa applicants and a group of teenagers who had come for an education programme, were among persons ushered out of the building on account of the development. After about a 40-minute wait at an open space in the premises, Mr. Russell Brooks, the consulate’s public affairs officer, explained to the puzzled evacuees that the order was prompted by the discovery of a parcel containing a white powdery substance. “We are going to find out what that substance is. They isolated that package and they are attempting to verify what the substance is,” said Brooks. “For those of you who do not have anything in the building, it is probably best for you to leave because thi...

Registered in England and Wales. Number 8860726. Hydraulic cylinder cushions have been an inexpensive option available on pneumatic and hydraulic cylinders for more than 100 years. It gets down to a simple, machined extension of the piston rod that can decelerate a load during the last few inches of stroke. This deceleration process is automatic, adjustable, and requires no maintenance. It’s an elegant, cost-effective solution if properly executed. Progressive cushioning relies on the same basic principles but uses additional features for greater effectiveness. Why would you need it? The advantages of progressive cushioning are best realized when you have a very large, heavy structure, such as a flood gate, navigational lock gate, or movable bridge span powered by a hydraulic system. If you are designing such a system, the obvious need to decelerate and stop the structure from moving at each end of the cycle can be accomplished in many ways. Gradually reducing hydraulic fluid flow near the end of s...

An Engineer’s Guide to Laser Cutting > ENGINEERING.com

YPE html PUBLIC “-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN” “http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-transitional.dtd”> 1967 had the Summer of Love, Thurgood Marshall’s confirmation to the Supreme Court and—if you’re a hockey fan—it was the last time the Toronto Maple Leafs won the Stanley Cup. There was also no shortage of engineering news in 1967, including the Apollo 1 disaster, the Saturn V rocket’s first launch and the Concorde’s debut. Here’s another event from 1967 that was arguably just as important but didn’t get nearly as much press: Peter Houldcroft, then Deputy Scientific Director at The Welding Institute in Cambridge, UK began his experiments using an oxygen assist gas to cut a 1mm-thick steel sheet with a 300W CO2 laser. This marked the beginning of using lasers for industrial material processing. Now, 50 years later, laser cutting machines account for the largest segment of the metal cutting machine market, which also includes plasma, waterjet and mechanical cutting. In the simplest terms, a CNC laser cutter uses a coherent beam of light to cut material, most often sheet metal, but also wood, diamond, glass, plastics and silicon. Broadly sp...

A Marine’s sketches of military life to be preserved by Camp Pendleton museum

Ron Burton joined the Marine Corps fresh out of high school in 1952, reporting to Parris Island in South Carolina for boot camp. The 17-year-old recruit, thousands of miles from his home in Pennsylvania, began drawing while off-duty. He didn’t know it at the time, but Burton was recording history with his cartoon-style sketches that captured glimpses of military life — the mess hall, an enlisted club, a drill sergeant giving orders, a Marine in Dress Blues. One drawing shows two young Marines on Christmas Eve 1953, drinking beer alone, slumped in their chairs at a table in an enlisted club decorated for the holidays. In the background a radio is playing, “I’ll be Home for Christmas.” “It was after the Korean War and I was feeling sad because it was my first Christmas away from home,” Burton said. “I wanted to capture that feeling.” Another shows a Marine washing his cup and fork and spoon in a trash can filled with hot, soapy water outside the mess hall at Marine Corps Auxiliary Landing Field Edenton, North Carolina, after the Korean War. A Marine is waiting behind him, ready to wash his dishes. Those drawings are among 12 the retired local Marine captain has donated to the Cam...

5 Best Portable Grills of 2019 (Charcoal, Propane, Infrared)

We grilled and barbecued for weeks to find the best charcoal and propane gas grills you can lug around anywhere. Nothing says summer like cooking over an open flame. Whether it’s for the salty sweetness on that lightly charred, freshly grilled corn or the rich smoothness of smoked meat, summer begs us to get outside and light a fire. Sure, true grilling enthusiasts are outdoors checking the temp on their smokers even when the wind chill is in the single digits. For most of us, though, the grilling season starts on Memorial Day, and we really hit our stride around the Fourth of July. After those final Labor Day hot dogs are gone, the grill goes rolling back into the garage. We’ve looked at full-size gas grills and charcoal grills in years past, but with the summer travel season in full swing we wanted to find the best ways to get your grill on wherever you go, so we researched and tested a dozen new grills to see which can brat the best. Note: When you buy something using the retail links in our stories, we may earn a small affiliate commission. Read more about how this works. Of the charcoal grills I tested, the Weber Jumbo Joe strikes the best balance of affordabil...
