Local heating companies see spike in business as people get ready for cold temperatures | News

PORTLAND, OR (KPTV) – The cold temperatures outside have many trying to heat up inside, as we reignite that annual relationship with our furnaces and heaters.  As the temperatures dip, many of us will be reaching for the thermostat for the first time in a while, that’s if you haven’t already. And for some, that heat just won’t come, and that’s what’s keeping area heating companies plenty busy right now. Furnaces can be a fickle thing. Whether it’s a bad wire or a burned-out motor, a lot can go wrong, and it seems like a lot of folks are already running into problems. “It’s been a surprise because normally, folks don’t turn their furnace on until the middle of October, and we’re getting a burst here right at the end of September,” said Jack Brockway. “We work in the cold and we work in the heat, so if it’s not cold we’re twiddling our thumbs and if it’s not hot, we’re doing the same thing,” he said. “It seems like there’s too many calls to handle sometimes. Everybody’s trying to turn their units on at the same time, and many of them, they sat for months in a row and now they’re not wanting to fire up,” said Jacob Hinchcliff. Brockway says it’s always a good idea to fire up...

3 Ways Textile Manufacturers are Seamlessly Integrating AI into Production Register ico-close ico-supplier ico-white-paper-case-study ico-product ico-cad

Welcome to Thomas Insights — every day, we publish the latest news and analysis to keep our readers up to date on what’s happening in industry. Sign up here to get the day’s top stories delivered straight to your inbox. AI is upgrading the way textile manufacturers are doing business. Every element of the process, including textile production, product cost, quality control, data collection, statistical process control, just-in-time manufacturing, and computer integrated manufacturing, is getting an AI makeover. Computers and robotics were first used in the labor-intensive textile industry as early as the 1960s for fiber production, yarn and fabric formation, dyeing processes, and machinery. Now, artificial intelligence can access and collect both historical and real-time operational data to improve efficiency and compliment and amplify the capabilities of human workers. Three of the more practical AI applications already being implemented in the textile industry today include defect identification, pattern inspection, and color matching. Until recently, human workers would manually inspect fabric to ensure quality, but factoring in several aspects, such as fatigue, neglect, or ...

Taylor Swift Brings Spectacle to Amazon Music’s Prime Day Concert

Subscribe to the all-new Rolling Stone! Everything you need to know from the authority on music, entertainment, politics and pop culture. Dua Lipa, SZA and Becky G also perform for Prime Day at the only show to feature a crowd cheering the phrase “Free shipping” Taylor Swift brought spectacle and avoided controversy at Amazon Music’s annual Prime Day concert in New York. In the 1950s, an iconoclastic quantum scientist and mathematician named Hugh Everett developed the many-worlds theory, a controversial idea that would lay the groundwork for a canon of alternate universe sci-fi detailing parallel dimensions. Everett’s work focused on the splits in the universe caused by measuring quantum objects, but became fodder for the idea that alternate realities besides our own are forming continually. I don’t know how many people in the audience at Wednesday night’s Amazon Music concert at New York’s Hammerstein Ballroom have nerded out on Everett’s theory, but a bastardized version played out as Taylor Swift brought her stadium show to a far more intimate gathering to promote the site’s Prime Day next week. In one universe, Taylor Swift the consummate businesswoman has been public...

Poll: Should parents who don’t get vaccinations for their children have child benefit cut in half?

AN IRISH DOCTOR has suggested that parents who don’t get the recommended vaccinations for their children should have their child benefit cut in half.

Venezuela: Military Imposes Fuel Rationing in World’s Most Oil-Rich Nation

According to a report from Reuters, dictator Nicolás Maduro ordered soldiers to manage the distribution of fuel, forcing long lines of vehicles to form in service stations in several regions on Sunday. In the western city of San Cristóbal, near the Colombian border, members of the country’s National Guard wore anti-riot gear as they limited gasoline sales to 40 liters (10.6 gallons) per vehicle, roughly equivalent to a full tank for a compact vehicle, but well below capacity for SUV’s, 4×4’s and other large vehicles. In some parts of the city, angry protesters vented their frustration by blocking streets with garbage, metal barriers, and tree branches. “How can a country function like this?” Antonio Tamariz, 58, told the agency, having waited days for fuel to return his truck back to his farm. “No one has explained why there are so many lines for gasoline. I think the government is losing control of this.” In Maracaibo state, once considered the epicenter of the country’s oil industry, soldiers limited drivers to just 20 liters (5.3 gallons) of gasoline. “They have taken control of the pumps,” said Rocco Huerta, a manager of a service station in Maracaibo. “Every five hours the...

Philips Hue Sync Box review (early verdict): TV synced with smart lighting is cool

Philips Hue has the best smart bulbs business on lock right now, with an unparalleled portfolio of smart lights allowing people to intelligently light their home in whatever way they wish. There’s a reason why we gave the lighting platform a maximum 5-star score in our Philips Hue review. And, with the new Philips Hue HDMI Sync Box, the lighting master has now added the ability to have its smart lighting products sync to content playing on TV. The Sync Box sits between any TV box, games console, DVD/Blu-ray player, or entertainment system and a television and allows a user to sync their lights to their home theatre experience. The Sync Box itself (seen above) has four HDMI inputs, too, meaning that up to four devices can be connected at any one time, and as the box itself connects to the TV via HDMI, the result is a rapid and seamless display of coloured smart lighting that responds and reflects the content viewed. In addition, the Sync Box can work with just audio streams, too. Recently, at IFA 2019, T3 got to witness just how the system worked. The demonstration took place in a living room environment where multiple Philips Hue light strips and towers were placed around ...

At a starting price of $2,499, it’s not cheap, and the model we’re reviewing here rings up at $2,999. For power users who live life on the ble...
