2020 Audi A4 Lineup Debuts With Refreshed Face, Hybrid Power

Audi gave the European version of its A4 lineup the slightest of facelifts last year. As we head into the 2020 model year a slightly more prominent update is befalling the full A4 line. We’ve seen spy photos showing long roof Avants playing in the snow with camouflaged front and rear clips, and now we know why. Audi has decided to pull the covers off its entire A4 lineup for 2020, including the discreetly released S4 TDI diesel that broke news at the beginning of May. For starters, the 2020 A4 line wears a slightly enhanced face. The obvious difference is with the redesigned headlights that eliminate the weird lower notch from the previous model. Less obvious is the refreshed Singleframe grille, which stretches longer across the front for a more horizontal appearance. Conversely, the corner vents on the lower fascia now adopt a vertically themed orientation. Redesigned taillights retain a similar appearance to the outgoing model, while the rear fascia incorporates minor changes to the lower reflectors and exhaust outlets. The refreshed A4 and S4 are joined by the Avant and A4 Allroad, the latter of which gains a few exterior design tweaks and an extra 1.4 inches of ground cleara...

HMI Advances: Is There a Perfect HMI for Every Packaging Machine? | 2019-01-08

No catch-all packaging machine solution exists for every different consumer good, container/material type and plant environment. Similarly, there is no one-size-fits-all human machine interface (HMI) hardware for every packaging application. Machine builders in the packaging industry must select operator interfaces with the correct functionality, screen size and housing type for their applications. Due to ongoing advances in HMI technology in terms of hardware and software, the range of options keeps growing — creating new solutions for specific machines or lines that will support safer, more modular designs and intuitive operation. Most importantly, it will ensure that the hardware is reliable and up to the job for years to come, since high-quality industrial displays must often last for 20 years or more. Broadcasting Live from Global Pouch Forum, this presentation will cover the generalities of the package development and the method by which it works. It will also cover the status and time lines for commercialization in the industry across the different categories in liquids packaging. 10 Point Multi Touch Lcd Manufacturers Cheap Price Broadcasting Live from Global Pouch Foru...

The ban on e-cigarettes, imposed in Rajasthan a day before World No Tobacco Day last month,

The ban on e-cigarettes, imposed in Rajasthan a day before World No Tobacco Day last month, has come after a sustained campaign by voluntary groups spanning several months and recovery of a “missing file” with original note-sheets and documents following the change of government in the State Assembly election. Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot announced the decision to ban production, distribution, advertisement and sale of e-cigarettes on May 30. He said the Congress had promised to take steps to curb smoking and addiction among the youth in its election manifesto and the decision would prove to be effective. The previous BJP government had appointed a committee of experts to study the effects of e-cigarette and make its recommendations in September 2017. Though the committee recommended an immediate ban, no concrete action was taken and the file with original papers went missing from the office of the Additional Chief Secretary, Medical & Health Department. The committee, headed by medical expert Nalin Joshi, had found that the nicotine-laced and heat-not-burn devices were “extremely harmful” recommended a ban on e-cigarettes. Meanwhile, voluntary groups kept appealing to the g...

Martin County wants businesses to ditch plastic straws, go plastic-free

Martin County’s plastic straw resolution will make it the first Treasure Coast government to ask businesses to curb or stop using plastic straws. This conversation is moderated according to USA TODAY’s community rules. Please read the rules before joining the discussion. STUART — To keep more plastic out of the ocean and away from marine life, would you give up using plastic straws at your favorite restaurants? To prove it, commissioners on Tuesday will sign a resolution that encourages county businesses to voluntarily reduce or stop using single-use plastic straws and polystyrene products like Styrofoam. The goal is to help eliminate the 8.8 million tons of plastic pollution that flow into the oceans each year, which is expected to double by 2025, according to the resolution drafted by county staff. Glass straws, like those seen here on an outside table overlooking the south fork of the St. Lucie River in Stuart on Thursday, April 18, 2019, are used for drinks served in-house at Gilbert’s Coffee Bar, while “HAY! Straws” are used for drinks to-go. (Photo: XAVIER MASCAREÑAS/TCPALM) The resolution creates an outreach campaign to educate the public, s...

All 2,493 items targeted by China’s tariffs in US trade war — Quartz

China’s latest tariff retaliation, announced today, will hit some $60 billion in US exports, including hundreds of agricultural, mining, and manufactured products, threatening jobs and profits at companies around the United States.  Before the trade war starts in earnest, China bought about 17% of US agricultural exports and was a major market for other goods, from Maine lobster to Boeing aircraft. It has been the largest market for Apple iPhones since 2016. Since the escalation of tariffs, though, China has stopped buying soybeans and lobsters, and Apple warned it would miss its expected Christmas holiday sales figures because of trade tensions. In addition to the 25% tariffs below, Beijing also added 20% tariffs on 1,078 US products, 10% tariffs on 974 US products, and 5% tariffs on 595 US products (all links in Chinese). The list was translated from China’s ministry of finance press release using Google translate, and may be inexact in spots. Quartz also rearranged some items on the list to group them into categories, and they may not be in the order of their “harmonized tariff schedule” codes.  Picosecond Laser, 808nm Diode Laser, Nyd Laser, Hifu Machine – ALWAYS Beau...
