With the stated intent of combating illegal immigration, Senators Chuck Schumer (D., N.Y.) and Lindsey Graham

With the stated intent of combating illegal immigration, Senators Chuck Schumer (D., N.Y.) and Lindsey Graham (R., S.C.) are crafting new legislation to institute a national identification card. The card would be required in order to be eligible for employment, and would in turn enable employers to identify and reject illegal immigrants who are seeking work. The card would be biometric, i.e., containing identifying characteristics unique to the physiology of the cardholder. In this case the biometrics would most likely be comprised of either a fingerprint or a scan of the veins on the back of the hand. This is not the first time a biometric card has been proposed: in the wake of 9-11, there was a strong push for a national ID card on the basis of national security. Schumer and Graham claim that the institution of a national ID would not be accompanied by the creation of a complementary database; however, no national identification system has ever operated independently of a database. It would be impossible to run a national ID system without a corresponding database available for purposes of verification. Thus, although the card would initially include only biometric and citizen...

Medtronic gets FDA clearance for cardiac-mapping vest

Figuring out what is causing an irregular heartbeat typically means an invasive procedure: most often, electrophysiologists insert a catheter to the heart via an artery or vein to get a cardiac “map” and identify the origin of the arrhythmia. But a new device from Medtronic takes the process outside, in the form of a sensor-enabled vest. Dubbed the CardioInsight Noninvasive 3D Mapping System, the single-use, disposable wearable received FDA 510(k) clearance last week, following a predecessor system that was used in more than 1,600 patients. In addition to having the benefit of being non-invasive, the vest may also give physicians more insights, as it can be worn long enough to catch transient arrhythmias that could otherwise be missed on a one-time ECG test. The vest features 252 electrode sensors to provide a wide range of electroanatomic 3D maps of the upper and lower chambers of the heart, and works by pairing body surface electrocardiogram (ECG) signals from the chest, then combining them with data from a computed tomography (CT) scan of the heart and connecting to the CardioInsight Workstation. It comes in four sizes, contouring to the wearer’s body and enabling continuous,...

Flare Audio’s Zero speakers boast a stackable and eco-friendly design

Flare Audio, the Brits behind the £999 24-karat gold-coated in-ears, claims to have developed the world’s first premium speaker with an environmentally-conscience design in its new Zero range. So what makes these premium speakers zero-waste and 100 per cent recyclable? Paper. Yes, really. Zero is allegedly the world’s first loudspeaker to use recycled paper in the fabrication of its exterior. “We use an English paper mill which makes the greyboard from recycled paper. This is then stamped into vortices. Waste is sent back to the paper mill, creating a perfect synergy and zero waste. The metal plates are machined from solid plates of aluminium. Any waste from the machining process is recycled, again allowing zero waste,” explains Flare founder Davies Roberts. Using its patented Space technology, Flare Audio clamps layers of 2mm thick recycled paper between solid, milled aluminium plates with such force that the paper apparently becomes as rigid as concrete. These layers of rigid paper sheets form hundreds of vortices, trapping sound but letting air through to release pressure and enabling free movement of the driver. Flare calls this technology ‘Vortex’. ...

Complex Geometry Glass Balustrade: Eleftheria Square, Design and Construction

The Glass structure of the West Balustrade in Eleftherias Square Nicosia Cyprus presented a challenge to Pentagonal in terms of 3D modelling, special glass fittings fabric, glass production, installation and testing in order to achieve the goal of this long waiting project. The design and construction of this prominent and futuristic design by Zaha Hadid Architecture project required input and expertise from Architects, Structural engineers, Software engineers, Glass specialists engineers and General contractor builder. A glass balustrade may be more than the functional propose, may be a land mark or point of cultural reunion creating an urban plaza for the city of Nicosia connecting both sides in the last divided capital of Europe. Todays architectural demand for complex geometry has been developed to attain maximum transparency in more organic forms to improve the wellbeing of users and maximize interaction with the outside. This glass balustrade was produced by Pentagonal and has an inclination of 42 along its length with non regular curved geometry to create a glass balcony faced to west. Structural glass elements and software modelling were specifically developed, simulated...

Laser cutting technology in the leather industry progresses

Along with the progress of society and the development of science and technology, leather products are being more widely used in various applications. Leather products not only create infinite value, but also play an indispensable role in daily life, such as for clothing, shoes, gloves, sandals, fur hats, belts, watch straps, leather cushions, car seats, and steering wheel covers. Traditional technology for leather processing mostly adopts cutting, embossing, and embroidery machines, which operate at slow speeds and have a high manpower cost with sometimes less than high-quality results. As a consequence, this fundamentally restricts the development of the leather industry. In recent years, because of the wide application and popularization of lasers, leather laser cutting machine use also rose at this time. High-energy, high-power-density carbon-dioxide (CO2) laser beams can process leather rapidly, efficiently, and continuously. Laser cutting machines employ digital and automatic technology, which provides the capability to hollow out, engrave, and cut in the leather industry. An example is the leather laser cutting/engraving machine by Hunst Laser Technology (Dongguan, Guangd...

The DSS1 Performance Disc road bike is the first stock bike offering from renowned custom bike

The DSS1 Performance Disc road bike is the first stock bike offering from renowned custom bike builder Thomas Donhou, and represents a distillation of the design ideas expressed in his bicycle creations over the years. What Donhou has created in the DSS1 is a signature bike, a culmination of his bicycle design ideas. One common signature on many of his bikes over the years has been disc brakes. Donhou started adding disc brakes to steel frames many years ago at a time when doing so was still far from the commonplace sight it has become this year. The Reynolds 853 frame is specifically designed for disc brakes. The rear brake is mounted inside the rear dropout and all the cables routed externally along the down tube – the brake cable runs a full length of outer housing for protection from grime and grit. There are no mudguard mounts; the DSS1 is not meant as an all-weather commuter/winter training bike, it’s pegged as a high performance disc-equipped bike. And on that front it delivers. This is a bike with exemplary handling and top notch performance. The ride displays a superb smoothness from the Reynolds 853 Pro Team tubeset and a high class build kit that shines in...

Halloween 5K runners: “They left us in the middle of nowhere”

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. – Runners are speaking out about their experience participating in the Halloween 5K last Saturday, after they say hundreds of people were left stranded in the bitter cold with no direction for nearly an hour before the race started. People are also complaining about a dirty, unmarked course, and a lack of communication from the organizers. The race’s organizers posted to their Facebook page Friday night, saying the U-Haul holding the commemorative Halloween-themed race T-shirts and medals had been stolen. They said they were working with local law enforcement to find the thief, but didn’t expect to have the gear back by race time. Colorado Springs police confirmed to KRDO on Tuesday that there was a report made about a stolen U-Haul outside the Gold’s Gym on North Academy Avenue. We reached out to the organizers early Tuesday, who agreed to speak with us, but have yet to answer our questions about what happened. Race participant Raymond Bailey tells us hundreds of people were dropped off via bus just outside the Caliber Collision, an auto body repair shop across from the park, with no one to direct them to the starting line. “They loaded us up and t...
