If it’s been a while since you upgraded your bed, it might be time to spruce

If it’s been a while since you upgraded your bed, it might be time to spruce things up. Even if you don’t need to replace your mattress just yet, swapping out your bedding set (i.e. your pillows, comforter and sheets) can make all the difference for a good night’s sleep. The Good Housekeeping Institute Textiles Lab tests bedding of all kinds for things like comfort and durability both in the Lab and with our panel of consumer testers. Read on to learn more about our top picks, but first, here’s what you should keep in mind as you shop for bedding: Check the fiber content. 100% cotton is the most popular option for bed sheets because it feels natural and soft. Premium cotton, like pima or Egyptian, is considered luxury bedding because it’s softer and more durable, but it may be more expensive and there have been instances where brands mislabel regular cotton sheets as Egyptian. Polyester or cotton/polyester blends are stronger, less expensive, and more durable and wrinkle-resistant, but they don’t feel as natural.Choose the construction. Your main choices are percale and sateen. Percale is a basic, grid-like weave that feels light and crisp, while sateen is more intr...

As the British designer looks back on 30 years of pioneering sustainability in fashion, she speaks

As the British designer looks back on 30 years of pioneering sustainability in fashion, she speaks to Vogue about being the industry’s original eco-warrior and why she’ll keep using her voice to effect change. When Katharine Hamnett created her now famous slogan T-shirts in 1983 – emblazoned in block capitals with phrases like “Choose Life” and “Save the World” – she hoped they would be imitated widely. “The messages were the things that were designed to be copied, not just the typeface for fuck’s sake,” Hamnett, 71, tells Vogue from her east London studio. She cites Henry Holland and Dior’s “We Should All Be Feminists” tees as disappointing spin-offs, “watered down” attempts at fashion activism, explaining that the original tees were designed to “weaponise the human body as a noticeboard”. This is coming from the woman who famously caught former British prime minister Margaret Thatcher by surprise at a 1984 reception by whipping off her coat to reveal an anti-nuclear missiles T-shirt (above). “I haven’t been invited since; I think they’re terrified I’ll try to do the same thing again,” she says. A fair concern, considering Hamnett’s outspoken nature. (She’s campaigned on a seri...

Ford to offer hybrid and electric options in redesigned 2020 Escape SUV

Ford today is taking the wraps off the latest generation of the Escape. It’s a major re-work inside and out, with new sheet metal and powertrain options. The 2020 Escape is sportier, loaded with technology and, with hybrid and electric options, clearly built for the future. The Escape has been Ford’s most affordable SUV since its debut in 2000. Smaller than the stalwart Explorer and more traditional than the Edge or Flex, Ford has always positioned the Escape as an easy and accessible sport utility vehicle. The upcoming version carries on that tradition while offering buyers new options. The 2020 Escape comes in several variants. The base model sports a 1.5L EcoBoost engine, or buyers can step up to a 2.0L EcoBoost. Ford is also offering the Escape in a traditional hybrid configuration and, for the first time, a plug-in hybrid setup. But buyers will have to wait for the plug-in version. This trim level will hit dealers next spring while the rest of the line will be available this fall. The driving range is competitive. Ford says the front-wheel drive Escape equipped with the standard hybrid has an EPA-estimated range of 550 miles. The plug-in hybrid is expected to get 30 miles ...

For Red Robin, the problem was its seasoned steak fries. As a signature item for the

For Red Robin, the problem was its seasoned steak fries. As a signature item for the burger brand, it was imperative that the fries, along with the gourmet burgers and growing menu of entrees and sides, hold up in a container for 30 minutes if Red Robin was going to successfully expand its off-premises business. “We needed ventilation for our steak fries,” says Jason Rusk, VP of business innovation for the Greenwood Village, Colorado-based brand. “At first we basically had a cardboard box.” A clear lid was another requirement, “so it’s easier for team members to ensure order accuracy,” continued Rusk, who opted to engage Anchor Packaging, a manufacturer already deep into research and development of new products for home delivery. With a container already on the market designed to keep fried chicken crispy, Anchor undertook “tremendous new product efforts to address a problem at that time that no one felt they could solve: keeping fries crispy,” says Michael Thaler, Anchor’s executive VP of marketing and custom. Anchor adapted its product for fried chicken to develop an entire Crisp Food Technologies line with features such as raised air flow channels on the bottom to promote cro...

Medical Machining Shifts Into High Gear—With a Laser Assist

Advanced Manufacturing Media is a leading source for news and in-depth technical information about advanced manufacturing in North America. Whether it’s traditional machining or hybrid processes, medical manufacturing requires machine builders and toolmakers to stay on their toes When it comes to machining today’s finely tuned medical components, speed—not to mention tool life and automation—is of the essence. Constant refinement of medical machining from tooling design to finished product requires not only the ability to handle a broad range of plastic and metal materials but also to achieve predictable results—particularly in the face of strict regulations. Whether it’s just turning and milling or hybrid processes with lasers being teamed with Swiss systems to perform cutting and welding operations all in one machine, medical manufacturing requires machine builders and toolmakers to stay on their toes. To machine medical parts and features as small as the hexalobes in bone screws while preserving tool life, Tsugami/Rem Sales LLC (Windsor, CT) has equipped several machines in its portfolio with custom speed-quadrupling units. Standard spindles on Swiss-style machines typically...

Four-wheel ads to ply on Hyderabad roads for the 1st time

Hyderabad: Advertising in the city goes for a spin. The Hyderabad traffic police has become the first in South India to give approval for four-wheel advertising on the city roads. The ‘Black Stallion’, has LED screen displays on three sides with P5 resolution for the day and night visuals. This vehicle with GPS tracking system can display audio-video advertisements. The distraction it will pose to commuters is a matter of concern. The traffic police issued certain guidelines and restrictions regarding how and were Black Stallion can be used. The vehicle will be allowed to travel in certain specified areas. The company has been told not to operate the vehicle on main roads or at traffic junctions, as it is likely to distract drivers and pedestrians. The vehicle is permitted to operate in areas where there are private firms, institutions as well as residential areas.  The traffic police has also advised the advertisers to use the vehicle for public campaigns within Hyderabad limits. “Advertisement is about visibility. After months of research, we zeroed in on a three-sided advertisement design with aesthetic appeal. Priority was maximum display space and visibility,” said Mr D. S...

Rob Zombie Releases Three Tracks from the 3 from Hell Score

We don’t know when Rob Zombie’s 3 from Hell is coming out. Shit, we’ve seen a trailer, and we still barely know what the fucking movie is about, other than that it’s a sequel to House of 1,000 Corpses and The Devil’s Rejects. But we do know this: the movie is gonna have a killer score, courtesy of Rob Zombie and Zeuss (who has produced albums for Zombie, Hatebreed, Revocation, The Acacia Strain, and a thousand other cool bands). If you dig the dark, moody, dare we say seedy synth scores for genre films of the ’70s and ’80s, you will friggin’ love this shit: Speaking of not really knowing the actual plot of this movie… Kerrang! astutely notes that the motherfucking drop dead gorgeous cover art (below) for the vinyl edition of the score may clue us into at least one key story point: “For example, it looks like the three in question are Baby (Sheri Moon), Otis (Bill Mosley), and new character Winslow Coltrane (played by Richard Brake, famous for his portrayal of the Night King in Game Of Thrones). Meanwhile, Sid Haig’s infamous Captain Spaulding only appears on the back of the record.” I find this development troubling. Haig’s portrayal of Captain Spaulding is just, MWAH!, a perfor...

YPE html PUBLIC “-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN” “http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-transitional.dtd”> Two members of the community have received the nation’s highest award, the A.C., and a brother and sister and a mother and her son have been recognised by their country. This year’s recipients of the Queen’s Birthday awards who are either Jewish or proud of their Jewish heritage total 38, the highest number according to our records. For eminent service to the law, and to the judiciary, particularly in the field of intellectual property, to higher education, and to sports arbitration. Annabelle Bennett immerses herself in whatever she undertakes and admits that the law has given her many “fabulous opportunities”. “You never think that you are that special, but then it is nice to get this recognition,” she said. She admits that now she has added an AC to her name, she has caught up with her husband who already has one. When congratulated by J-Wire on her Award this year, she gently pointed out that J-Wire had failed to approach her when she was awarded an AO and was glad she would not be missing from the 2019 honour roll of Jewish ...

‘Sex and the City’ Men: Where Are They Now?: Photos

Big! Aidan! The men of Sex and the City stole the show just as much as the HBO hit’s four leading ladies. From Chris Noth to John Corbett and more, the fellas have gone on to great things since the show ended its six-season run and spawned two movies. Carrie Bradshaw (Sarah Jessica Parker), Samantha Jones (Kim Cattrall), Miranda Hobbes (Cynthia Nixon) and Charlotte York (Kristin Davis) stirred up plenty of trouble in their love lives, with the help of everyone from boyfriends to husbands to best guy pals. The drama found its way offscreen too. Mario Cantone, who played Anthony Marantino, made his feelings known after a third film was put on the backburner. “It’s not gonna get done!” he said during a November 2017 appearance on The Wendy Williams Show. “And yes, we’re all very upset about it. I’m very pissed off about it.” Cattrall was initially blamed for the canceled project, leading to speculation of a feud between the Tell Me a Story actress and Parker. The Divorce star denied the rift rumors in April 2018. Jason Lewis, for his part, was unaffected by the ordeal. “I didn’t really think much of it at all. People like to make mountains out of molehills and I didn’t really pay t...
