Garmin Forerunner 945 Multisport Watch In-Depth Review

Ahh yes, the moment you’ve all been waiting for has arrived: The plastic Fenix 5 Plus. Except, wait…not really. Yes, it has everything the Fenix 5 Plus does, but it actually has more. It’s got special sauce both from a hardware and a software standpoint. Which makes sense, it’s almost a year later since the Fenix 5 Plus came out. Sure, the new FR945 gains things like onboard music storage/playback (including Spotify), as well as contactless payments and SPo2 readings. All staples of more recent Garmin wearables. But it goes beyond those too. It also takes in all of the new features of the $1,500 Garmin MARQ watches, including temperature and altitude acclimation as well as more detailed training load/focus metrics. And while they were at it, it joins almost every other 2019 Garmin device in adopting the Sony GPS chipsets – which in turn gives it longer battery life (though, not without some downsides I’ll dive into). Now this wasn’t the only device released today. In fact, Garmin released two other series: The Forerunner 245/245 Music and the Forerunner 45/45S, which are at lower price points. Atop that, Garmin also announced new female health tracking – and it’s actually incred...

Kyntronics’ high-speed/high-force dual cylinder actuator system optimizes complex clamp, press mode productivity.

Kyntronics’ high-speed/high-force dual cylinder actuator system optimizes complex clamp, press mode productivity. Traditional clamp-and-press actuation applications present the challenge of having a rapid stroke at a low force, while requiring steep ramp-up to a high force for a short period. Achieving these demanding performance parameters typically means expensive oversizing of the hydraulic infrastructure to provide both high speed and high force. Within this large machine footprint, delivering required position and force control presents complex motion and expense variables. In addition to having too many pieces in the equation, other factors include oversized and continuously running pumps, large hoses that often leak and require maintenance, and the energy consuming valves repeatedly turning on and off while transitioning from high speed to low speed. To overcome the problem of oversizing components for applications that have a rapid stroke at low force with a load stroke at high force, motion control/actuation specialists Kyntronics have developed a high speed/high force (HSHF) all-in-one actuator. Combining a servo-based SMART hydraulic actuator (SHA), coupled with a hig...

Why Subscribe to Microsoft Office When So Much Is free?

Just as I was warming up to choosing a Microsoft Office 365 subscription over making a one-time software purchase, Microsoft started giving away a lot of subscription benefits for free. The company now offers Word, Excel and others at no cost on most mobile devices. It’s a smart move by Microsoft, but it makes me wonder whether you really need a subscription, which starts at $70 a year. The subscription will appeal to people who use Office apps on traditional Windows or Mac computers or Windows tablets, such as the Surface Pro 3. Those who primarily use iOS and Android mobile devices can probably stick with free apps. What’s right for you comes down to whether you need a PC or can get things done with just your smartphone or tablet. Here’s what to consider. Microsoft’s newly released Office apps for iPhones, iPads and Android tablets are quite good. Microsoft offers Word for text documents, Excel for spreadsheets, PowerPoint for presentations, Outlook for email and OneNote for organization–all for free. (Access for databases and Publisher for desktop publishing aren’t available yet.) I’m writing this review on Word using an iPad and Andr...

3D printing is revolutionizing the healthcare market, bringing new tools to all medical specialties. This technology

3D printing is revolutionizing the healthcare market, bringing new tools to all medical specialties. This technology was first introduced mainly in traumatology and maxillofacial surgery, where bone models were printed to help learn about and understand complex fractures, deformities, or scoliosis. Since the anatomy of each patient is different, 3D printing is essential to manufacturing individualized solutions. As expected, the idea of printing implants and custom surgical tools soon emerged. With this development two questions arise: how advanced is this technology today, and how far could we go with it? One of the advances with the greatest impact on orthopedic and maxillofacial surgery is surgical guides – tools provided with channels or tubes that guide traditional surgical instruments on a path planned by radiological software. These guides are designed and personalized to adapt to the anatomical contour of the patient. The field where they are most developed is dentistry, although they are also being implemented in traumatology, maxillofacial surgery, and oncology. Choosing the material is not an easy task. Guides, like any other surgical instrument, must be printed using...

Warum wir uns nicht vor Schusswaffen aus dem 3D-Drucker fürchten müssen

Waffenbastler stellen ihre Baupläne ins Internet und träumen von Knarren für alle. Doch bisher hat kaum jemand tatsächlich funktionierende Plastikwaffen mit dem 3D-Drucker produziert. In Deutschland wäre das ohnehin verboten. Waffen aus dem 3D-Drucker tauchen immer wieder als Schreckgespenst in der politischen Debatte auf. Zuletzt sorgte eine Ankündigung der US-Regierung für Aufsehen, nicht mehr juristisch gegen die Verbreitung von Druckvorlagen für Schusswaffen vorzugehen. Das ließ Anhänger uneingeschränkten Schusswaffenbesitzes in den USA jubeln. Doch nicht für lange: Ein Bundesrichter hat fürs Erste die freie Verbreitung von Waffenplänen im Internet verboten, mehrere Staaten gehen nun rechtlich dagegen vor. Wir brauchen uns jedoch vorerst ohnehin wenig Sorgen über Amokläufe mit Pistolen und Gewehren aus dem 3D-Drucker machen: Denn bisher wurden kaum funktionsfähige Schusswaffen hergestellt. Die zunehmende Verbreitung von 3D-Druckern in den vergangenen Jahren macht das Selberdrucken von Schusswaffen möglich, zumindest im Prinzip. 2013 stellte die Gruppe Defense Distributed in den USA den Bauplan für die angeblich erste komplett 3D-druckbare Handfeuerwaffe mit dem Namen „Liber...

Duke falls outside top seeds in projected bracket Podcasts CBS Sports Digital Facebook Twitter Instagram Podcast Sportradar

Duke is a popular pick near the top of college basketball in 2019-20, with the Blue Devils coming in in the top 5-6 teams in nearly every Way-Too-Early Top 25 poll. But long-time college basketball writer Andy Katz released a mock NCAA Tournament bracket Monday that had the Blue Devils lower, as a No. 3 seed in the New York City Regional. The good news is that it would put Duke’s first two projected games — the first round against Liberty and the second round against Utah State, Michigan or North Carolina — in nearby Greensboro, less than an hour from Cameron Indoor Stadium. But it would also mean Duke would enter the NCAA Tournament outside the top eight teams, and could sit potentially further down if the Blue Devils aren’t the top-ranked No. 3 seed. Interestingly enough, Duke hasn’t reached the Final Four as anything but a No. 1 seed since 1994, when Duke was a No. 2 seed. And the Blue Devils last reached the semifinals as a No. 3 seed or lower in 1990, when Duke was a No. 3 seed. Michigan State, Kansas, Kentucky and Louisville were the No. 1 seeds, following by Texas Tech, Florida, Maryland and Seton Hall as the No. 2s. Joining Duke on the No. 3 seed line are ACC rivals Nort...

Tailored approach to twin-carrying dairy cows lifts yields

A Pembrokeshire farm has tailored transition-cow management for cows carrying twins, boosting milk yields by up to 1,000 litres a cow. The Griffiths family made alterations at Penlan Farm, Haverfordwest, in 2014, after scanning revealed eight sets of twins were to be born in five weeks. Unable to work out what caused the run of twins, Andrew Griffiths and son Rhys looked to alter twin-cow management in their high-profitable lifetime index herd to prevent energy-negative fresh cows and spare a production shortfall of 21 litres/day in early lactation. Fertility was also an issue, admits Rhys, with cows needing up to three services following a twin birth. “Prior to the run of eight cows, we found twin-carrying cows were starting milking giving as little as 9 litres/day,” explains Rhys, who targets 4,000-5,000 litres/year from pedigree Jerseys and 8,500-9,000 litres/year from the farm’s pedigree Holstein-Friesians. The decision was then taken to scan the Carwyn herd monthly, combining the expertise of both the farm’s veterinarian and its AI company to alter twin cow management. The result has been an extra 500-1,000 litres produced a cow, with cows now calving twins and “not lookin...
