Upffront.com has supplied many running rigging packages for top level J70 campaigns. Find out what is currently “hot” when it comes to driving the best performance out of these exciting sportsboats. N.B. These recommendations, based on Gottifredi Maffioli’s full range, apply to any small performance sportsboat from 23-27ft. Note: there is a J70 class rule minimum diameter of 6mm for all primary sheets and halyards. The SK78 core provides excellent strength and stiffness and as the main is cleated off, it has no special cover requirements and the H.T. polyester cover is more than adequate. We recommend a soft LOOP shackle for attachment to the head of the main. The jib halyard is effectively a strop with a spliced eye at both ends and therefore the single braid Ultra 78 offers the maximum strength/stiffness for minimum weight. A soft LOOP shackle attaches the head of the jib and the tail end exits the mast when fully hoisted and attaches to a 4:1 purchase for tensioning. A lightweight, 5mm polyester cover-only line is used as a hoist line for the main Ultra 78 halyard strop. Again, the DSK78 core provides performance level strength and stiffness but this line re...

During the anaerobic digestion of dewatered sludge, polyacrylamide (PAM), a chemical conditioner, can usually be consumed as a carbon and nitrogen source along with other organic matter (e.g., proteins and carbohydrates in the sludge). However, a significant accumulation of acrylamide monomers (AMs) was observed during the PAM biodegradation process. To improve the anaerobic hydrolysis of PAM, especially the amide hydrolysis process, and to avoid the generation of the intermediate product AM, a new strategy is reported herein that uses an initial pH of 9, 200 mg COD/L of PAM and a fermentation time of 17 d. First, response surface methodology (RSM) was applied to optimize PAM removal in the anaerobic digestion of the sludge. The biological hydrolysis of PAM reached 86.64% under the optimal conditions obtained from the RSM. Then, the mechanisms for the...

Continuity testing is one of the most valuable functions on the modern multimeter. It will help

Continuity testing is one of the most valuable functions on the modern multimeter. It will help you investigate wiring problems in your car, tell you if you’re holding a nullmodem serial cable or the regular kind, and even reveal when you’ve accidentally shorted the data lines right to the power supply. However, all that beeping can get annoying, so [bitelxux] built a vibrating version instead. The build was borne out of necessity; [bitelxux]’s meter lacked a buzzer, and it grew frustrating to always look at the display. In order to allow late night hacking sessions to go on undisturbed, an unobtrusive vibrating tester was desired, as opposed to the usual audible type. Two whiteboard markers donated their shells to the hack, fitted with small nails to act as probes. Inside, a pager vibration motor is connected, vibrating when continuity is found. The circuit runs from a 1.5V AA battery which neatly fits inside the marker shell. It’s a basic build, but gets the job done with a minimum of fuss using parts that most makers probably have lying around. Of course, you can always go a slightly more complicated route and throw an Attiny at the problem. This is a great idea! I have sever...

Properties of LED light can boost poultry production and profits (MAGAZINE)

The energy-efficient, narrow-band emission of LED sources makes the lighting technology valuable in life science applications. Ken Marrin examines how solid-state lighting is being deployed in poultry-rearing applications to both reduce electrical expenses and boost production. The energy-efficient, narrow-band emission of LED sources makes the lighting technology valuable in life science applications. KEN MARRIN examines how solid-state lighting is being deployed in poultry-rearing applications to both reduce electrical expenses and boost production. The demand for food worldwide is expected to double by 2030. To meet that demand, producers are adopting new technologies that will enable them to increase production at a reduced cost with less stress on the environment. Most of these production technologies focus on enhancing traditional inputs such as water, air, nutrients, and housing. One largely unexplored production input is light. By utilizing LED lighting and taking advantage of the unique spectral requirements of poultry, swine, dairy cattle, fish, or crustaceans, farmers can reduce stress and mortality, regulate circadian rhythm, and substantially increase the production...

In the out-of-hospital environment, the ability to manage our patient’s airway is perhaps the most crucial

In the out-of-hospital environment, the ability to manage our patient’s airway is perhaps the most crucial skill we can possess, and one that is often taken for granted. Whether it is establishing an airway on the trauma scene patient, or being able to successfully manage the worst case event of an unexpectedly extubated patient, when Murphy’s Law brings the gremlins to our transport world to wreak havoc on our day, we have to have the skills ready to respond immediately. Prepare for the worst   As skilled providers and masters of our craft, we owe it to our patients and their families to be prepared for the unexpected – from the time we make contact until the moment we drop them off to our destination facility, and during that time, we should hold the mentality that failure is not an option. I have been fortunate to have worked with many great mentors throughout my career, one of which, my first medical director, referred to flight paramedics as holding the expectation of being the ‘airway masters’. His true belief was that, as professionals, we brought many skills and abilities to a scene, but the most important was the expectation that we should have the ability to secure and...

Best multi-cooker that does all the hard work for you Home Home Social/Facebook Social/Twitter

If someone said you could do away with your pans, roasting tins, microwave, slow cooker and even your conventional oven – but still cook delicious meals – you might think they’d gone potty.  But the growing range of increasingly clever multi cookers means it’s a reality. And there’s more choice than ever. We tried and tested a range of multi-cookers using the suggested recipes and programmes – from machines that cost no more than twenty quid up to those that will set you back over a grand.  We took into consideration number of programmes, ease of use, extra functions such as timer and keep warm, and of course the culinary results.  Interestingly, it wasn’t always the top dollar machines that came out best – in fact, some didn’t even make it into our roundup at all. Read on to find out which ones did, and why. You can trust our independent reviews. We may earn commission from some of the retailers , but we never allow this to influence selections, which are formed from real-world testing and expert advice.

They might not have a catchy nickname like the “terrible twos”, but three-year-olds come with a whole new set of challenges courtesy of all the developmental changes they are going through. While all children are different and learn at different rates, there are a few key skills you can expect your pre-schooler to acquire during this busy year. This includes mastering the ability to dress and undress themselves – although where and when they will choose to do this is anyone’s guess – and they start to develop the first signs of being able to negotiate conflict. They will also become more independent, begin to recognise themselves as a whole person with emotions as well as physical feelings, and the lines between fantasy and reality may get a little blurred. All of these changes mean the way your child plays – and what they play with – may start to change. Role play becomes a key part of everyday life ...

First Look: Greenworks Commercial Lithium Z industrial electric lawnmowers impress

I’ve used Greenworks lineup of 40V then 80V line of lawn equipment to take care of my acre of grass (and driveway in the winter) for over 5 years. Overwhelmingly, the experience has been positive with clean, quiet, vibration-free battery power really taking the edge off of lawn maintenance. If you are used to gas mowers, do yourself a favor and try an electric mower –– environment aside, it feels like pushing around a box fan compared to a loud, vibrating, smoke belching, antique. When we learned Greenworks were launching a commercial lineup of Zero Turn Lithium mowers to compete with Mean Green Mowers and more importantly compete with the awful machines that commercial lawn care companies use, we had to take a look… The Greenworks brand was started over a decade ago by the Chinese Global Tools Group parent company with a large minority stake being bought by German based Stihl Group as of May 2016. Stihl brings to the table expertise in high quality gasoline powered products, though the company has their own battery division with products that overlap with Greenworks portfolio. Like I said, I’ve used Greenworks’ consumer electric tools and mowers and mostly they’ve done a great ...
