A decade of innovation: The beautiful prints of India– The Noel D’Cunha Sunday Column

Peacock Media bagged the Award for the clever use of technologies for solutions, which resulted in really innovative products. Innovation based on systematic processes that organisations use to develop new and improved products, services and business methods. According to Peacock Media, it involves harnessing creative ideas of an organisation’s employees and blending it with the infrastructure to bring a steady flow of profitable new innovation to the marketplace – fast and efficiently. Peacock’s Indian Railways project was one such innovation, which attracted national attention. This was followed by its heroics for Jet Lite and others like HSBC. It also earned them awards at the Singapore advertising event and HP excellence award in 2008. As one judge remarked, this PrintWeek India Innovative Award is “yet another Peacock feather in the cap”.table { font-family: arial, sans-serif; border-collapse: collapse; width: 100%; background-color: #ffad33 } td, th { color: black; border: 1px solid #dddddd; text-align: left; padding: 8px; } tr:nth-child(even) { background-color: #fff5e6; } The Innovative Printer of the Year was one of the strong groups with very high-quality entries.

Why the Queen broke royal tradition and ditched her Imperial Crown for Parliament speech

Queen Elizabeth swapped her 2.5 pound Imperial Crown for a lighter tiara during the State Opening of Parliament on Monday.  It wasn’t the first time Queen Elizabeth has chosen not to wear the Imperial Crown; she also chose a different piece to wear for the state opening of Parliament in 2017.  On Monday the Queen wore the George IV diadem with her traditional attire of a full dress and fur shawl.  It is thought that the Imperial Crown was simply too heavy. It weighs two pounds and eight ounces and has 2,868 diamonds, 273 pearls, 17 sapphires and 17 emeralds. It was originally made for the coronation of King George VI in 1937. The Queen previously joked about the crown in a BBC documentary where she said, “You can’t look down to read the speech. Because if you did, your neck would break – it would fall off.” This year, she opted for the George IV diadem instead. The tiara debuted in 1828 and was resized in 1902 by Queen Alexandra.  2019 New Style bridal crown But the Imperial Crown did still make an appearance. It was placed on a table next to her on top of a red and gold cushion.  Pageant Crowns, Bridal Crowns, Rhinestone Mask, Rhinestone Scepter – Crown...

Stock tanks—large containers traditionally used on farms to water livestock—are getting recreationally repurposed as an affordable

Stock tanks—large containers traditionally used on farms to water livestock—are getting recreationally repurposed as an affordable alternative to above-ground swimming pools. While a stock tank is widely available at tractor supply stores and well-suited for the farmhouse-rustic design trend, there are several shopping and setup factors to consider before purchase. You’ll also need to learn maintenance practices that ensure water in a stock tank pool is safe for swimming—free of debris, human contaminants, and waterborne bacteria that can cause rashes or infections. We discuss all of this below, so take the plunge! Stock tanks are manufactured out of plastic (usually polyethylene) and metal (usually galvanized steel). While an in-ground swimming pool can cost $20,000 to $65,000, and an above-ground pool can set you back $3,500 to $15,000, a stock tank can be had for between $200 to $450. Generally, metal tanks cost 35 percent more than plastic ones, and the larger the size and capacity, the more expensive. Tanks can range from two to 10 feet in length and width for square or rectangular tanks, and two to 10 feet in diameter for round tanks, which can hold between 25 to 800 gallo...

Chilean ‘Playboy’ Model Daniella Chavez Flaunts Famous Derriere In Red Lingerie

Daniella Chavez shared a hot new update with her millions of Instagram followers on Wednesday — a photo in which she showed off her famous derriere — and her fans just can’t get enough. The Chilean Playboy model took to the popular social media platform to post a sizzling snapshot in which she can be seen rocking a skimpy lingerie set that puts her famous figure on full display. In the post, Chavez is shown posing in front of a full-length mirror, holding her iPhone next to her body to snap a selfie. The model rocked a deep-red lingerie one-piece that features a thong-cut bottom that left most of her toned derriere on display. The lingerie also featured a cut-out back where a thick strap clasps in the middle, holding the piece in place. The garment boasted thin gold chains as the front straps, which are adjustable to allow the wearer to find the best fit. Chavez accessorized her look with a simple, silver bracelet that added sparkle to her outfit. In her caption, Chavez thanked an online store, Tavo Ramirez, for her new iPhone, adding that she loves the new three-camera feature. She also thanked a Chilean designer for her providing her “dream closet.” As per usual, Chavez wrote ...

The safety and emissions testing new stoves have to go through are very intense. Any manufacturer that can meet the new standards probably makes a good stove, the rest is all about style.” “If you ever need service...

There has never been a greater demand for alternatives to classic plastic products as today. Nowadays, up to 80% of plastics can be replaced by biogenic fillers, such as wood flour and cork or by natural fibres for reinforcement. Biocomposites are available for almost every application: packaging, consumer goods, toys, handles, shoes, façade and terrace elements, floors, automotive parts and even room applications. This year’s nominated companies give a good picture about the emerging application fields for biocomposites: automotive, packaging, casing for consumer goods, instruments as well as solutions for construction such as facades, according to the organisers.

[Frederick] decided his new Zero needed a USB hub. He noticed a small, on hand, USB

[Frederick] decided his new Zero needed a USB hub. He noticed a small, on hand, USB hub was the same size as the Zero. As any good hacker would, he stripped it from its case to piggy-back it onto the Zero. What’s with the piggy-backing since we just saw that with another Zero hack that added a WiFi dongle? Is it something in the water? Nah, probably just a natural fit with the mini-sized Zero. It certainly helps that the USB and power pads on the back of the Zero are available and of a good size to accept direct, soldered wire connections. The USB connections on the hub were a little more tricky. The wires were soldered to the surface mount pins of the mini-B connector. But [Frederick] managed to get that done, also. A nice advantage of this hack is that a couple of soldered jumper wires let the Zero draw power from the hub’s wall-wart, eliminating one cable from those needed to work with the Pi. Using hot glue for strain relief on the wiring is a nice touch. To keep the boards from shorting he put a piece of foam between them and help them together with elastic bands. Simple and easy. I am jealous…. Where did you purchase the Zero’s from. Everyone seems to be sold out or they s...
