With a seemingly endless number of styles, colors, collaborations, and designs available, sneakers are arguably the best way to express your personality and style through fashion. As someone who owns more than 100 pairs of shoes, I could conceivably wear a different pair to perfectly match every outfit I put together, but white sneakers remain my favorite. Clean, simple, and easily paired with a majority of clothes found in any wardrobe — simply put, they’re a wardrobe staple. Almost every sneaker in existence has been made in a white colorway, so trying to figure out which one is truly the best can be pretty difficult. And, frankly, what’s “best” for you is going to depend on your own set of criteria, like style, comfort, and materials. I’ve owned dozens of white sneakers over the years — and yes, I’m wearing a pair now as I write this — so I rounded up eight styles to appeal to a var...

GM’s eBoost trailer-brake concept enables better stopping distances for trucks

Let’s imagine for a second you’re hauling the family camper down the highway, driving five over the speed limit because little Johnny couldn’t find his bike, Sarah didn’t want to stop playing Xbox and you just really want to get to the campsite. Cresting a ridge, you see Bullwinkle standing on the yellow line, right in your path. What do you do? If you answered “crap my pants,” you’re being honest, because that extra 9000 lbs of Heritage Glen fifth-wheel adds immensely to any truck’s stopping distance. GM thinks it’s come up with a solution, one that should reduce the brown-pants factor in the above situation. Currently in concept form, this idea starts with the pickup’s eBoost braking system. GM engineers integrated a trailer with a similar eBoost system plus upgraded hardware components such as brake rotors, calipers and tires. With eBoost on both the truck and trailer, plus proper software to enable communication, the stopping distance improved by up to 20 per cent when hammering the stoppers at 100 km/h when compared to an identical truck-and-trailer combo using traditional electric trailer brakes. This tech permitted the truck’s electronic brain to command trailer-braking a...

eWEEK INNOVATION ANALYSIS: There is a path to doing innovation right, which Apple demonstrated with the

eWEEK INNOVATION ANALYSIS: There is a path to doing innovation right, which Apple demonstrated with the iPhone; the question is, can Elon Musk execute his idea for a futuristic truck steeped in IT? As we talk about enabling and driving innovation, the recent announcement of the Tesla Truck showcases that there is one huge, glaring problem we continue to fail to recognize: People don’t like change. This seems to get worse as we age. There is a path to doing innovation right, which Apple demonstrated with the iPhone; recall that before the iPhone the most popular smartphones had keyboards and came from companies like Palm, Nokia and Research In Motion. As we approach the holidays, let’s talk about doing innovation right. #responsive_asset { border-bottom: none !important; } #middleBorder{ border:#2b9fea solid 3px; margin-bottom:20px; } I watched with fascination how the Twitterverse responded to the launch of the Tesla truck, which is arguably the most aggressively innovative design that segment has seen since the Corvair Pickup of the 1960s. That one didn’t sell particularly well, and I know this because I had one, or more accurately, my father had one, and it became my daily dri...

It’s pretty cut and dry: Hunting geese—big honkers, lesser Canadas, specklebellies, and even snows—is easier over

It’s pretty cut and dry: Hunting geese—big honkers, lesser Canadas, specklebellies, and even snows—is easier over water. It’s more familiar to them; they roost and loaf on the same ponds and lakes; and it’s a more relaxed/comfortable environment. Plus, there aren’t 10 hunters laying in the middle of the decoys or crouching in A-Frames in a hedgerow with their heads peeking out the top of the blind. But since there isn’t always an abundance of water for all of us to hunt, we have to go to the cut corn, beans, milo, etc., to get the job done. Water is typically more conducive to a quick, successful hunt, so we will give you the tools to fill straps there first and then move on to fields, which takes more ingenuity and oftentimes patience. It’s a long-standing no-no to shoot the roost, but it’s the most successful way to consistently kill geese. The trick is sleeping in. Get there about 8 a.m., and wait for a majority of the birds to fly out to feed. If it’s an early-season resident Canada goose hunt and there are just 100 birds, let them all get off the water. With so few birds, you can’t afford to push any off (they probably won’t come back). When it’s January in Kansas and there...

It’s been another busy 12 months in the courts of Nottingham – and Nottinghamshire Live has

It’s been another busy 12 months in the courts of Nottingham – and Nottinghamshire Live has been there to bring you all the latest news. From the jailing of the killers of teenager Lyrico Steede in Bulwell to the death of father-of-four Omar Shafiq at the Forest Recreation Ground, and from the dismantling of the heroin gang targeting north Notts to the sentencing of the woman who caused the Nottingham Train station fire, these are the cases that made the headlines in 2019. The vast majority of the cases were heard at Nottingham Crown Court and Nottingham Magistrates’ Court, but there are a handful from courts in Lincoln, Derby, Leeds, Leicester and London which we have included because they involve local people. Kasharn Campbell, 19, who had no fixed address, and Christian Jameson, 18, of Kirkbride Court, Chilwell, were found guilty of the murder in December. On January 25, the judge imposed tariffs of 20 years and 37 days to Kasharn Campbell and 16 years and 36 to Christian Jameson. A 17-year-old boy – who cannot be identified, and Remmell Miller-Campbell, 18, of Sneinton Boulevard, were found not guilty of murder but guilty of manslaughter. The 17-year...

Like so many, can’t wait to get out into the garden. My question is, what can

Like so many, can’t wait to get out into the garden. My question is, what can I do to finally eliminate the major problem of squirrels digging and eating my flowers and bulbs. They do so in my garden, my window boxes and somehow feast on my squirrel-repellent bird feeders. I have tried products like shake-away & sprays that only last for a short time or until it rains. I even purchased an electronic sound device that worked for 2/3 weeks until they realized it was a phony sound. Any help would be appreciated. A: Squirrels are some of the most pesky garden visitors. They raid bird feeders, dig up bulbs and destroy flowers. But make sure you have a squirrel problem before adopting preventive measures. Some of the signs include small holes in planting beds and containers, fruit or flowers that are missing or half-eaten, damaged or missing plants and chewed plants. While you can use an all-purpose solution such as getting a dog to deter unwanted animals in the garden, specific situations are often best addressed with a remedies directed at those particular problems. I checked with the Humane Society of the United States and other organizations for recommendations that deter the ...

For the workers of the city Corporation’s health wing, it is a familiar process all over

For the workers of the city Corporation’s health wing, it is a familiar process all over again, as they gear up for the Statewide ban on single-use plastic, which will become effective from New Year day. More than two years ago, the civic body had banned the use of plastic carry bags, after which it had carried out campaigns across shops and markets in the city, to promote the use of alternatives like cloth and paper bags. Although some change is visible, especially in the use of cloth bags in some supermarkets and shops, plastic carry bags are still widespread. Quite a few of the shop owners have continued to use them after the initial phase of frequent raids had stopped. “In 2017, when the Corporation first imposed the ban, we did not have the capacity to produce alternatives on our own. So, we depended on such manufacturers, bringing them together in fairs for alternative packing materials and supplying them to the shops. This time, the supply of cloth bags come from the five cloth bag-making units, which the Corporation opened recently. In the past one month, around 1.5 lakh cloth bags have been sold. But, shopkeepers have still not turned up in expected numbers to collect t...

Today I want to share how I created a few huge, Gigapixel photos, using a DIY panoramic head. Actually,

Today I want to share how I created a few huge, Gigapixel photos, using a DIY panoramic head. Actually, it is not a panoramic head, because it not only goes right and left, but also up and down. I’ve been a big fan of panoramic photography and of landscape in general for a long time. But four years ago I was climbing a mountain and the view from the top simply took my breath away. I felt an urgent need to share the image with people who don’t climb and therefore will never get access to such views. Here is the thing though, standard photos do not have enough details. Our eyes have far more resolution that your standard digital camera, so a new project began: I wanted to build an awesome Gigapan Robot — a custom, automated panoramic head for DSLRs. I got inspired by some pro grade products, but could not find one that fit my two main needs: total control and A LOT of weight. The idea is to move a Nikon D90 (about 650 grams) body mounted with a Sigma 150–500mm lens (1.9 Kg) at small increments on two axis overlapping images in both the vertical and horizontal axis. Incidentally, just a few days prior to climbing, my friends (Alex & Joan) gave a quick rundown on Arduino: a smal...
