Amokura: The classic yacht celebrating her 80th anniversary by racing

A classic wooden yawl might not seem the obvious choice for offshore racing, But Nic Compton finds this classic yacht is up for it There’s no shortage of stunning boats moored at Port Pendennis in Falmouth when I visit the marina in June, not least a couple of enormous, shiny superyachts being polished to death by their crews. But I haven’t come to see them. The boat I’ve come to see is tucked away at the far end of the outer jetty. With her glowing varnish, immaculately scrubbed decks and period fittings, Amokura looks every bit the timeless classic she is: a precious piece of maritime heritage to be nurtured and preserved and treated with the utmost respect and reverence. She’s a concours d’elegance winner; the lead boat in any parade of sail. Yet, as she motored out of the marina towards the open waters of the Carrick Roads, Amokura wasn’t heading towards yet another classic boat festival, to compare baggywrinkle tying techniques with other aficionados – far from it. This 80-year-old classic was off to Ireland to race, tack for tack and gybe for gybe, against a fleet of modern racing yachts in the 270-mile Dun Laoghaire to Dingle Race. Not only that, but she was being sailed...

Fail Of The Week: Did My Laser Cutter Tube Really Burn Out?

All the cool kids are doing it these days, or more like for many years now: you can get a laser cutter for a song if you don’t mind doing your own repairs and upgrades — you know, being a hacker. The downside is that some failures can really ruin your day. This is what [Erich Styger] encountered with his cutter that is just a bit more than a year old. This Fail of the Week looks at the mysterious death of a CO2 laser tube. This is the infamous K40 laser cutter. Our own [Adam Fabio] just took one on a couple of months back and [Erich] even references Hackaday coverage of the K40 Whisperer project as what pushed him over the edge to make the purchase. We’ve followed his blog as he acquired the cutter and made upgrades along the way, but after an estimated 500 hours of use, a horrible teeth-gnashing screech sprung forth from the machine. [Erich’s] reaction was to hit the e-stop; that’s certainly why it’s there. Chasing down the problem is a story well-told, but as is often the case with these FotW articles, in the end what caused the failure is not entirely known. We’d love to hear what you think about it in the comments below. The investigation began at the power supply for the la...

OnePlus 8 Pro renders show quad camera, punch-hole notch

OnePlus might have only just unveiled its late 2019 flagships, but that hasn’t stopped the leaks of its next lineup. We caught a glimpse of the potential upcoming OnePlus 8 just ahead of the 7T launch, and now it’s the turn of the OnePlus 8 Pro, which has appeared in a series of 3D renders. The renders come courtesy of @OnLeaks in collaboration with 91Mobiles, and given the track record of the leaker, there is every chance that this represents a close-to-final product representation. Of course, we have had a glimpse of the potential OnePlus 8 already, thanks to the popular leaker. It appears as though the Pro and mainline OnePlus line will share a common design language if these renders are to be believed. According to these OnePlus 8 Pro renders, we’ll see a similar design to the OnePlus 7 Pro, but with a few minor refinements. These include a new punch-hole notch within the display, meaning no pop-up selfie camera this time around. It’s worth noting that the curved display looks set to be slightly smaller at 6.65 inches rather than the 6.67-inch panel found on the recently released OnePlus 7T Pro. We would also expect it to come with at least a 90 Hz refresh rate — which OneP...

ICYMI: This Machine Makes Zaxby’s-Level Ice in Your Very Own Kitchen

You know that ice you get at certain fast food restaurants that puts every other piece of ice you’ve ever had in your life to shame? You know—that ice. The chunky, pillowy, crunchy, stuff sent straight from heaven. Most people simply call it “the good ice,” but apparently it has a name: nugget ice. Once only available at Sonic, Zaxby’s, and other fast food favorites, you can now enjoy nugget ice in the comfort of your very own home. We missed it somehow, but apparently the Opal Nugget Ice Maker was released a few years ago after a successful crowdfunding effort. This baby is straight out of an ice lover’s dreams: This 3-pound beauty holds up to 2.5 quarts at a time and it produces one pound of ice per hour. “Traditional ice makers freezes water into a hard ice cube,” the website states. “Opal nugget ice is made by scraping the ice flakes off the inside of a chilled stainless steel cylinder. The flakes are extruded through a round hole, compacting them into chewable nuggets similar to a snowball.” Unfortunately, good ice doesn’t come cheap. The Opal Nugget Ice Maker will set you back about $500, a shockingly low price compared to similar (albeit larger) nugget ice makers that co...

Laying a foundation for worker safety truly starts from the ground up. Footwear safety is paramount

Laying a foundation for worker safety truly starts from the ground up. Footwear safety is paramount for skilled craft trades across the board. One small misstep or incident can result in varying levels of injury, causing lost time and compromised well-being. Finding protective footwear that is not only comfortable for workers, but also protective, is key to starting the workday out on the right foot. Craftsmen know they need the right tool for the right job. That same theory applies for footwear. When looking at a specific trade – in this case, working with and around electricity – special attention must be paid to footwear to reduce the possibility of electrocution or other electricity-related incidents on the jobsite. There are three general classifications for safety footwear from an electrical standpoint, and all three have very distinct purposes.Non-conductive footwear. Non-conductive footwear often is classified with an “EH” rating. This safety standard is designed to provide a secondary source of protection when accidentally coming in contact with live electrical circuits to reduce the potential of electric shock. When it comes to safety toes, EH-rated boots can have stee...

Teacher helped get me through JFK assassination | Ledger Independent

Ask yourself: Aside from your parents, or possibly a clergy person, or your grandparents, who else has had more of an impact on the adult you have become than a grade school teacher or – were you as lucky as I was – several grade school teachers? For me, there was one who stood out above them all – Mrs. Phipps, my homeroom and history teacher in the fifth grade at Cleveland Elementary School in Dayton, Ohio. I hadn’t thought about Mrs. Phipps for some time until a week or so ago when I was on a Facebook page for graduates of Cleveland Elementary and Mrs. Phipps was mentioned. Do not ask me her first name; this was the early 1960s and, for all we knew, teachers didn’t have first names. They were “Mrs. Phipps,” “Miss Partlow,” “Mr. Neff,” etc. The person who posted the reference to Mrs. Phipps was asking us to tell our favorite stories about this remarkable woman who was at the center of our lives when we were 10 and 11 years old. I said there were too many tales to recall, but I said that I would tell one – the story of how, in November 1963, she helped me and others in our class to deal with what certainly was the most traumatic period of my young life: the assassination of Pres...

Photos: Raw vegan meals that eliminate animal products and cooking

The raw vegan diet cuts out meat, animal products, and anything heated to more than 115 degree Fahrenheit in an effort to improve digestion and overall health. Research supporting the diet is mixed at best: While it’s true some foods have more nutrients raw, but others are actually more nutritious after cooking.  Veganism, a plant-based diet that’s been growing in popularity over the past decade, eliminates all animal products, including meat, milk, cheese, eggs, and sometimes even honey. Raw veganism is a subset of this diet that’s even more restrictive: It only includes foods that haven’t been heated above 104 to 118 degrees Farenheit, and avoids excessive processing of foods. Advocates of raw veganism believe this is a healthier, more natural way of eating, and that raw food has more nutrients or beneficial enzymes. Although the evidence on these theories is mixed, it’s true that incorporating more fresh fruits and vegetables, nuts and grains, into your diet is healthy.  On the other hand, avoiding all animal products, as well as cooked plant products, can be extremely limiting and unsustainable. Plus, some vegan foods like tomatoes, cabbage, spi...
