From Starting A Company In Her Car To Increasing Women’s Labor Force Participation

Years later, she became a stay-at-home mom with two boys in Chicago. But ultimately,  she returned to Jordan, wanting to build a better world for her boys  through business. In 2016, she cofounded Seven Circles, a one-stop-shop consulting agency that works with multinational corporations, nonprofits, government entities, and UN agencies on developing strategic partnerships, creating new revenue streams, and building sustainable solutions. The company also invests in startups across the Middle East and North Africa. In addition to helping run Seven Circles, Dina spearheads Empowering Through, an initiative bringing together multiple ecosystem stakeholders including aid agencies, the private sector, the public sector, academia, impact funds, and civil society to elevate individuals economically and socially. The project began when the UN asked Seven Circles to create a book to empower women refugees through cooking. Dina and her team decided if they were going to produce a book to encourage women to rise up through what they love to do the book should address all women.   Ax4060 Needle Roller Bearing So, the final product, the book Empowering Women through Cooking (EWC), came to ...

High transparency PP resin clears way for extrusion blow molding

This site is operated by a business or businesses owned by Informa PLC and all copyright resides with them. Informa PLC’s registered office is 5 Howick Place, London SW1P 1WG. Registered in England and Wales. Number 8860726. Hungary’s MOL Group has developed a new grade of random copolymer polypropylene (PP) specifically tailored for extrusion blow molding (EBM) that reportedly offers excellent optical properties in terms of transparency and gloss. This development means PP can finally compete with PVC or PET when it comes to transparency in EBM applications according to MOL. Modified with Milliken Chemical’s Millad NX 8000E clarifier, MOL’s resulting random copolymer — Tipplen R 665 XClear PP resin — also offers a fresher look, very low haze, a low yellowness index, and tunable aesthetics. Tipplen R 665 XClear works on all types of EBM machines, including single-station shuttle, double-station shuttle and long-stroke EBM machines. And it is suitable for use in all types of bottles –– from detergents to cosmetics to food applications. Millad NX 8000E has been designed specifically to provide a step change in optical properties with standard Ziegler-Natta PP EBM resins. It ...

In a National Theatre rehearsal room in 2009, Michael Gambon has been wrestling for three days with Alan Bennett’s new play, The Habit of Art.

Midland invests £250k to bring lamination in-house

Midland Regional Printers (MRP) will bring laminating services in-house later this year after investing £250,000 in new kit from Swedish manufacturer Lamina System. The Nottingham-based business is set to take delivery of a Lamina FA Blackline 1600/800 automated laminator in October, at which point operators will undergo two weeks’ training on the machine. The device will be additional to the company’s portfolio – it currently outsources all lamination work. “We’re putting a lot of mounting out at the moment and we’re looking at bringing these services in-house,” said sales and marketing director Kate Tew. “We started to look into the types of machine that suited what we wanted to do and Lamina were recommended to us. “While we’ve got space for the laminator, we need to clear some space for all the material that it’s going to take, so we’re in the process of moving things around to try and make way for it at the moment.” Running at a top speed of 5,000sph, the Lamina machine takes sheets up to 450gsm at a maximum size of 1.6x2m. It has edge-to-edge registration accuracy up to 0.2mm and automatic feeding for both its top and bottom feede...

Self-amplifying crystallization produces a Christmas tree of salt

Thank you for registering with Physics World If you’d like to change your details at any time, please visit My account Salt creep – a common phenomenon that occurs when salt crystals rapidly precipitate from evaporating solutions – can create serious problems for outdoor electronics, buildings, artwork and agriculture because of its corrosive effect. A team of researchers from the University of Amsterdam in the Netherlands has now quantitively described the creeping mechanism for the first time, showing that it is most likely to occur when relative humidity is low and solution evaporating rates high. They also say that creeping, which they describe as a self-amplifying crystallization process, can be inhibited by adding non-ionic additives such as Tween 80 to a salt solution. The salt crystals deposited during creeping can “climb” onto solid surfaces and spread quickly away from the evaporating solution. The phenomenon is fascinating because of the complex patterns it produces, but it is also a major nuisance in many practical situations, rapidly corroding even well-protected surfaces. Indeed, the speed at which the salt spreads is so fast that it has even been likened to...

Laser Caused ‘Dangerous’ Situation at 2017 Vernon Fireworks: Cops

VERNON, CT — A dangerous situation was created at the 2017 Vernon fireworks show by a man aiming a laser pointer at those in charge of monitoring the display, Vernon police said Friday. The man was arrested on a warrant Thursday. Vernon’s annual July in the Sky fireworks show draws thousands of spectators from the area. A warrant contains months of testimony on the case. Police quickly thwarted a similar incident in 2018, which led them to a suspect in the 2017 incident, case records show. The fireworks display began at about 9:40 p.m. in 2017 on July 5, and, shortly after, police noticed a “high powered” green laser light was being aimed at the area near Fox Hill Tower at Henry Park, where a private company shoots off the fireworks via a computer-coordinated program, according to a warrant. The tubes through which the fireworks are shot off must be monitored by sight by an attendant with a shut off switch and abnormal explosions could cause a firework to be shot off horizontally “toward the crowd,” according to a warrant. According to a warrant, a disturbed launch tube could cause a shell to travel 500 feet horizontally and “hot explosives...

From e-bikes to Uber, EVs to public transport; your resource for reviews, news and advice focusing on urban lifestyle. Renault claims its Trafic Trader Life is in response to industry demand for a delivery or small business van (2.5-2.5 tonne GVM) focused on minimum cost of ownership, for either single vehicle owner/drivers or fleet operators. In Renault PR speak, the Life is “optimised for the busy urban environment where high performance is less important than low running costs.” With sharp launch pricing of $29,990 driveaway for ABN holders, the Life’s low-cost specification certainly hits a sweet spot, given Canberra’s by-partisan support to increase the instant tax write-off threshold for SMEs from $25,000 to $30,000 in the next federal budget. However, while the idea of instantly writing-off the total cost of a new van might appeal to accountants, such cost-cutting also results in having to ‘pay a price’ in important areas like safety and practicality. The Life’s sub-$30K driveaway launch pricing puts it in the bargain basement wi...

IPP REVIEW–The International North-South Transport Corridor

One of Eurasia’s largest connectivity projects is taking off. The International North-South Transport Corridor (INSTC) is a major transit route designed to facilitate the carriage of goods from Mumbai in India to Helsinki in Finland, using Iranian ports and railroads, which Tehran plans to connect to those of Azerbaijan and Russia and its Baltic ports. Those links could give Russia rail connectivity to both the Persian Gulf and the Indian rail network. Russia, Iran and India founded and laid the groundwork for the project between 2000 and 2002. Subsequently, other countries joined the project. They included Armenia, Azerbaijan, Kazakhstan, Belarus, Tajikistan, Turkmenistan, Ukraine and Bulgaria. With countries in the Caucuses, South Europe, West Asia and Central Asia joining the INSTC, it is envisaged as one of Eurasia’s most important connectivity ventures. The INSTC is not and cannot be a counterpoise to China’s Belt and Road Imitative (BRI). Apart from India, all the countries involved in the INSTC are on the BRI. They also have far stronger trading ties with China than with India. Indeed, the INSTC was conceived long before Xi Jinping had arrived on the world scene as China’...
