Joey Strada’s Inline Route to USHL Is Paying Off With Goals

Joey Strada did not start playing hockey as early, or from the same motivations as many of the players he competes with today in junior hockey.                The Des Moines Buccaneers forward received a pair of inline skates for his seventh birthday, originally intended for his extreme sports interest.         Strada quickly developed a proficiency for roller hockey on those skates. A quick transition to ice hockey followed, and Strada was soon moving past an early interest in BMX bike racing and devoting his energies to a sport that has taken him from his home state of Arizona to South Dakota, and now to Iowa, where he’s wrapping up his final year of junior hockey before returning to Arizona. Strada, a 20-year-old from Scottsdale, has committed to Arizona State University, where he will report next fall. After three seasons with the Aberdeen Wings in the North American Hockey League, Strada elected to spend his final year of junior hockey one level up, playing for the Buccaneers in the United States Hockey League. Heading into this weekend’s games, Strada is leading the highest level of U.S. junior hockey in goals. “I was doing pretty well in roller hockey, so a year later I ...

Solve Venting Problems on Twin-Screw Compounding Extruders : Plastics Technology

Compounds must be free of voids and volatiles or else the material will cause subsequent processing problems. Here’s how to ensure your venting is effective. Alternative vent-port designs are available to suit specific requirements for degassing. Heated side vents are designed to prevent contamination (e.g., black specks) that can occur when polymer accumulates and degrades within the vent port. Most twin-screw compounding extruders utilize one or more atmospheric vents (e.g., for removing entrained air at side feeders) in addition to a vacuum vent for degassing volatiles. Side feeding of low-bulk-density fillers at high loadings (up to 80%) and high productivity requires multiple atmospheric vents to facilitate removal of large volumes of air from the extruder barrel. Melt can come out of the vacuum vent when the backup length (length of filled screws to develop pressure) reaches the vacuum-vent opening. The backup length increases as a result of screen fouling or die holes freezing. Screw and barrel wear in this area has the same effect of increasing backup length over time—in that case, vent flooding would be a chronic problem Melt is exposed to vacuum between filled section...

The average FDM 3D printer is not so different from your garden variety laser cutter. They’re

The average FDM 3D printer is not so different from your garden variety laser cutter. They’re often both Cartesian-coordinate based machines, but with different numbers of axes and mounting different tools. As [Gosse Adema] shows, turning a 3D printer into a laser cutter can actually be a remarkably easy job. The build starts with an Anet A8 3D printer. It’s an affordable model at the lower end of the FDM printer market, making it accessible to a broad range of makers. With the help of some 3D printed brackets, it’s possible to replace the extruder assembly with a laser instead, allowing the device to cut and engrave various materials. [Gosse] went with a 5500 mW diode laser, which allows for the cutting and engraving of wood, some plastics and even fabrics. Unlike a dedicated laser cutter there are no safety interlocks and no enclosure, so it’s important to wear goggles when the device is operating. Some tinkering with G-Code is required to get things up and running, but it’s a small price to pay to get a laser cutter on your workbench. We’ve seen [Gosse]’s 3D printer experiments before, with the Anet A8 serving well as a PCB milling machine. is it really that hard to modify 3d...

In the garden with Felder: Let’s talk landscape lighting

Columns     Entertainment     Food     Recipes     Transitions & Announcements   |   Suggest a Story Nighttime garden lighting can also be pretty by day and, after dark, makes garden paths safer to navigate.Photo by: Felder Rushing/Courtesy photo When Daylight Saving Time was put aside for the winter, folks with day jobs lost opportunities to enjoy after-work colors and textures. And it got dangerous, because after dusk, we can’t as easily see where to put our feet, especially when stepping out from the bright lights of the house, or stumbling home after a convivial evening on the town. Over the years, I’ve worked out a few things to help get me and visitors through the garden in the near dark. One is to simply set light colored plants along walks, including strategic clumps of variegated Liriope and a few winter-white “dusty miller” plants tucked here and there for added oomph. On even a partially moonlit night they shine like gems. I also planted silvery reflective gazing globes in sharp curves and hung outdoor wall mirrors that catch and glow with reflected light. But for my curved walks and steps, which can be daunting even in the daylight, I lon...

The perfect companion for a long road trip or family holiday, a coolbox can help keep

The perfect companion for a long road trip or family holiday, a coolbox can help keep your snacks fresh and your drinks cool. Choose one that plugs into your car’s 12-volt power socket and you can enjoy cooled food for longer, or if it connects to the mains in your house, you could even use one as an overflow fridge or pre-cool items ahead of your journey. The main role of a cool box is to keep food and drinks cold, so we tested each of our assembled eight boxes for efficiency by running each at their coolest setting for two hours. Before and after temperatures were taken and there were compared to ambient temperature to asses cooling power. We also made sure to see how well everyday items fitted, as well as checking for extra features like mains power connectivity and heated settings. Price was also a consideration in our final results. This cool box was joint best-in-test, boasting a temperature drop of 15.3 degrees. We were impressed by its build quality and good-sized compartment too; four 1.5-litre bottles were easily stored. There was no temperature control or mains power option, and we weren’t as impressed by its carry handle as on its larger cousin below, but the Halford...

Woman Claims Trip to Nail Salon Left Her With a Fungal Infection

GREENSBORO, N.C. — A Triad woman says she will never go to a nail salon again. She said she had a nightmare experience at a Greensboro salon that left her with a fungal infection. WFMY News 2 chose not to name the salon because we can’t prove for certain she got the infection there. But there’s still a lesson to learn from the customer’s experience. The woman who only wanted to reveal her first name said she got a dip powder manicure on October 17th. Bethany said the nail tech cut her while filing her nails, dipped her finger into the powder container, and finished the process. “I noticed about a week later I had a little spots go up [around a few nails] and tried creams over-the-counter and then soaked them in alcohol and peroxide and it just kept getting worse, ” she said. When her nails started to bleed earlier this week, she went to the doctors who diagnosed her with a fungal infection. Despite the name, “dip powder manicure” nail techs in North Carolina are not supposed to put your finger into the original powder container. “Our rules are very clear indicating once a product has come into contact with the client, it has to be...

An EPFL researcher has developed a mathematical model for optimizing heat transfer in factories and dramatically

An EPFL researcher has developed a mathematical model for optimizing heat transfer in factories and dramatically reducing water and energy consumption. The model could, in theory, cut water use by 60 percent at a Canadian paper mill and allow the facility to produce as much as six times more power. googletag.cmd.push(function() { googletag.display(‘div-gpt-ad-1449240174198-2′); }); Manufacturing consumer goods requires vast quantities of water, heat and electricity. The firms that make these items produce large amounts of CO2 emissions and have a huge impact on the environment. At the COP21 climate conference in Paris, world leaders highlighted the prominent role that manufacturers could play in combating climate change by reducing greenhouse gas emissions. Maziar Kermani, a researcher at EPFL’s Industrial Process and Energy Systems Engineering (IPESE) group, which is headed by Professor François Maréchal, has come up with a pioneering mathematical model that could cut the amount of water and energy used in industrial processes. He has developed a way to recycle lost heat and energy and to employ biorefinery technologies – combining turbines and organic fluids ...

West Stanly Middle School announces its honor roll for the first quarter of the 2019-2020 school year: 6th Grade Easton Aldridge, Mercedes Aleman, Nicholas Allman, … Read more | Add your comment In his new book, “Tar Heel Lightnin’: How Secret Stills and Fast Cars Made North Carolina the Moonshine Capital of the World,” he asserts that our state is tops in moonshine. He writes, “Indeed, if North Carolina has ever held the distinction of being number one nationally in anything, it is in moonshine production.” Then, in about 275 pages, showing the long and rich history of the making, sale and consumption of illegal liquor, he shows why and how North Carolina developed its No. 1 connection with what we call moonshine, also known by other names, such as corn liquor, white lightning, blockade, home brew and a host of other terms. “From the earliest colonial times, farmers, using techniques their families had learned in the British Isles, distilled their corn and fruit into whisky and brandy.” Until Civil War times, no government restrictions prevented them from making alcoholic beverages to trade or sell. In 1862 the national government passed an excise tax on liquor. After th...
