One of the first questions many people asked me when I told them I was moving

One of the first questions many people asked me when I told them I was moving to Minnesota from California was about food. Were there going to be fresh fruits and vegetables during the winter? Most importantly, would I have enough options as a vegetarian? While the first can often be lacking, to my pleasant surprise, I have found that there is much to offer in the way of vegetarian and vegetarian-friendly dining in the Twin Cities. The first restaurant I have chosen to review is J. Selby’s, a plant-based eatery located on Victoria Street, not too far from Macalester. The restaurant opened in April of 2017, and every time I pass the restaurant, it is packed with people. The restaurant has a fun atmosphere with huge windows and bright walls. It is designed with many communal tables as well as smaller tables dispersed throughout the space. When I went, the place was packed with people of varying ages and ethnicities. For me, this was a good sign, showing their food served a wide variety of tastes, and not just those you would expect to see at a hip vegan restaurant on a Saturday evening. My friend and I both chose to order dishes without meat substitutes, although many of their dis...

Visit WIRED Photo for our unfiltered take on photography, photographers, and photographic journalism wrd.cm/1IEnjUH People have told Jack Horner he’s crazy before, but he has always turned out to be right. In 1982, on the strength of seven years of undergraduate study, a stint in the Marines, and a gig as a paleontology researcher at Princeton, Horner got a job at Montana State University’s Museum of the Rockies in Bozeman. He was hired as a curator but soon told his bosses that he wanted to teach paleontology. “They said it wasn’t going to happen,” Horner recalls. Four years and a MacArthur genius grant later, “they told me to do whatever I wanted to.” Horner, 65, continues to work at the museum, now filled with his discoveries. He still doesn’t have a college degree. When he was a kid in the 1950s, dinosaurs were thought to have been mostly cold, solitary, reptilian beasts—true monsters. Horner didn’t agree with this picture. He saw in their hundreds-of-millions-of-years-old skeletons hints of sociability, of animals that lived in herds, unlike modern reptiles. Then, in the 1970s, Horner and his friend Bob Makela excavated one of the most spectacular dinosaur finds ever—a mass...

Hydrogen power could be coming to the superyacht scene in a pretty spectacular way, with Dutch

Hydrogen power could be coming to the superyacht scene in a pretty spectacular way, with Dutch company Sinot’s latest concept just unveiled in Monaco. The Aqua is a 360-foot (112-m) monster that would run entirely on liquid hydrogen and offer a range of 3,750 nautical miles (4,315 mi, 6,945 km). And boy, is it nice to look at from just about any angle. The Aqua’s huge hydrogen tanks are one of its many design highlights; to visit them, you take the spiral staircase in the center of the boat down to the lowest of five decks, and there they are, glowing with blue light. Two 28-ton, vacuum-isolated tanks designed to keep the liquid hydrogen stable at -253° C (-423.4° F) sitting behind strengthened glass for safety. These tanks can split off power at up to 4 MW, powering two 1-MW electric propulsion motors and two 300-kW bow thrusters for tighter maneuvering. A 1.5-MWh battery pack acts as a buffer, providing instant access to power and running the ship’s electrics, and is charged as necessary by the fuel cell. The Aqua can reach a lazy top speed of 17 knots (20 mph, 31 km/h), and it carries enough fuel to cruise at 10-12 knots for some 3,750 nautical miles, which ...

MIT’s color-changing ink could let you customize your shoes

Imagine if, rather than buy your favorite shoes in blue or red, you could buy one pair of shoes and change the color depending on how you feel each day. Maybe you’d decide to add multicolored flames or zebra print. A new, reprogrammable ink might let you do just that. PhotoChromeleon Ink, developed by MIT’s Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Laboratory (CSAIL), can change the color or pattern of an object when exposed to UV light. The CSAIL team mixed cyan, magenta and yellow photochromic dyes into a solution that they spray on objects — anything from shoes to cars, phone cases and toys. A coated object is then placed in a box with a projector and UV light. Users map the color or pattern they want into a program, which uses the UV light to activate and deactivate different colors. The colors last in natural light, and if you aren’t happy with the design, you can use the UV light to erase it and start again. For objects the size of a shoe or a model car, the process can take between 15 and 40 minutes. 0.6m T8 Led Tube High Quality Supplier “This special type of dye could enable a whole myriad of customization options that could improve man...

YPE html PUBLIC “-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN” “http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-transitional.dtd”> Five young chefs took part in a cookery competition sponsored by the Rotary Club of Westbury, at Matravers School on Wednesday 1st November. Rotarian David Perkins says, “They were each required to prepare, cook and serve a three-course meal for under £15 within 1 hour 30 minutes. The result was a mouth-watering selection of dishes, giving the judges a difficult task. Whilst the entrants all did very well, there had to be a winner to go on to the next heat. “After much deliberation the award went to Phoebe Strout, who served sweet chilli and garlic prawns, followed by chicken and leek hotpot and white chocolate mousse with a raspberry coulis. We are confident that she will do well in the next round of this year’s Rotary Young Chef competition. “Matt Prudence prepared stuffed mushrooms, Tandoori chicken with cauliflower, and chocolate and orange cheesecake; while Cameron Dawes produced butternut squash soup, beef cannelloni, and a mixed berry crumble. Sam Wills presented tartiflette toast, then chicken, bacon and asparagus pasta,...

Direct targeting of oncogenic RAS mutants with a tumor-specific cytosol-penetrating antibody inhibits RAS mutant–driven tumor growth

Oncogenic RAS mutant (RASMUT) proteins have been considered undruggable via conventional antibody regimens owing to the intracellular location restricting conventional-antibody accessibility. Here, we report a pan-RAS–targeting IgG antibody, inRas37, which directly targets the intracellularly activated form of various RASMUT subtypes after tumor cell–specific internalization into the cytosol to block the interactions with effector proteins, thereby suppressing the downstream signaling. Systemic administration of inRas37 exerted a potent antitumor activity in a subset of RASMUT tumor xenografts in mice, but little efficacy in RASMUT tumors with concurrent downstream PI3K mutations, which were overcome by combination with a PI3K inhibitor. The YAP1 protein was up-regulated as an adaptive resistance-inducing response to inRas37 in RASMUT-dependent colorectal tumors; accordingly, a combination of inRas37 with a YAP1 inhibitor manifested synergistic antitumor effects in vitro and in vivo. Our study offers a promising pan-RAS–targeting antibody and the corresponding therapeutic strategy against RASMUT tumors. Oncogenic mutations in RAS genes (KRAS, NRAS, and HRAS) are found in approxi...

1970s: Metal fabricating finds its footing The FABRICATOR STAMPING Journal The Welder The Tube and Pipe Journal The FABRICATOR en Español The Additive Report The FABRICATOR The Welder The Tube and Pipe Journal STAMPING Journal The Additive Report The FABRICATOR en Español

The FABRICATOR began life as a newspaper-style publication in January 1971. (The July/August 1973 edition is shown.) The reader got the latest in metal fabricating technology news and ink stains on their fingers. If you lived through the 1970s, you’ll recall disco music, pointy-collared shirts, big automobiles, and record inflation. It was a decade that wasn’t so much easy to remember, but more like hard to forget. If you worked in metal fabricating in the 1970s, however, you might look back at these years with some fondness, polyester leisure suits aside. Many elements of modern-day fabricating appeared on the scene during this time, and over the next three decades, the technologies and trends adopted would grow, many becoming integral parts to all sorts of metal manufacturing. The pages of The FABRICATOR, which the fledgling Fabricating Machinery Association, the forerunner of The Fabricators & Manufacturers Association (FMA), launched in 1971, has covered this evolution over the past 50 years. Those early issues of the magazine—which originally was published six times per year—dedicated much of its content to coil processing, roll forming, and stamping, all processes ass...

Safety Boots and Footwear: The Complete Buyer’s Guide

SHP Online 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. Changes to legislation in recent years mean that PPE (including safety boots and footwear) is provided by the employer at no cost to the worker.  But with such an abundance of safety footwear on the market, it can be a daunting task working out exactly what your workforce needs and which products meet the requirements of the tasks and workers involved. Sole descriptions are varied, from ‘improving the grip performance’ to ‘excellent multi-directional slip-resistance’. Often, footwear is just described as ‘slip-resistant’ with no description of the conditions for which the footwear is most suitable. When selecting footwear, you need to take into account several factors in addition to slip resistance, such as comfort, durability and any other safety features required, such as toe protection. Even the HSE suggest that the final choice may have to be a compromise. Safety footwear – as with all types of PPE – should only ever be used as a ‘last resort’ whe...
