Arctic Liquid Freezer II series looks … interesting

Arctic launches its new Liquid Freezer II series of AIO water coolers. Designed for high performance, the second generation Liquid Freezer includes four product versions: Liquid Freezer II 120, Liquid Freezer II 240, Liquid Freezer II 360, and Liquid Freezer II 280. For the Liquid Freezer II series, ARCTIC has incorporated an in-house developed PWM-controlled pump with a copper bottom plate. At low loads, the pump reduces rotational speed, thereby lowering power consumption. The 40mm fan on the pump provides consistent cooling for the motherboard voltage converter, while the sealed water circuit is maintenance-free. Thanks to its flat design and compact pump, the Liquid Freezer II fits into many cases and offers optimal RAM compatibility, even for modules with larger heatsinks. Each Liquid Freezer II model is compatible with all common AMD and Intel sockets. All versions of the Liquid Freezer II use tried and tested, pressure-optimized ARCTIC P fans, which are characterized by their durability. The new Liquid Freezer II coolers have been tailored to suit the needs of gamers and other demanding users. Compared to the predecessor series, they achieve even greater cooling performa...

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 citize...

Video Shows Power Isn’t Everything In Laser Engraving

When it comes to power tools, generally speaking more watts is better. But as laser maestro [Martin Raynsford] shows, watts aren’t everything. He shares a brief video showing his older 100 W laser being handily outperformed by a newer 30 W machine. Shouldn’t the higher power laser be able to do the same job in less time? One might think so, but wattage isn’t everything. The 30 W laser engraves and cuts a wooden tile in just under half the time it takes the 100 W machine to do the same job, and with a nicer end result, to boot. Why such a difference? Part of the answer to that question lies in that the newer machine has better motion control and can handle higher speeds, but the rest is due to the tubes themselves. The older 100 W machine uses a DC-excited (big glass water-cooled tube) CO2 laser, and the newer 30 W machine uses an RF-excited laser that looks a bit like a big metal heat sink instead of oversized lab glassware. Both tubes output what is essentially the same beam, but the RF tube is overall capable of a more refined, more stable, and more finely focused point than that of the glass tube. Since engraving uses only a small fraction of even the 30 W laser’s power, the ...

See Pete Buttigieg’s logo and branding for the 2020 presidential race

An award-winning team of journalists, designers, and videographers who tell brand stories through Fast Company’s distinctive lens On Sunday, Pete Buttigieg formally announced his candidacy in South Bend, Indiana, where he has served as mayor for eight years. Just a few months ago, few people had heard of Buttigieg and fewer still could pronounce it. (His campaign encourages people to pronounce it “Boot Edge Edge.”) But he caught many people’s attention at a CNN Town Hall in March, standing out in the crowded field of Democratic hopefuls as the youngest candidate at 37, who also happens to be openly gay, a vet who fought in Afghanistan, and a progressive who has won support in a conservative Rust Belt state. He’s since seen surge of interest over the past six weeks. A poll on Friday placed him third among voters in Iowa and New Hampshire, after Bernie Sanders and Joe Biden. [Image: courtesy Hyperakt]In addition to officially joining the presidential race, this announcement was an opportunity for Buttigieg to unveil his new campaign design and website, created by Brooklyn-based design firm Hyperakt. The new logo features a yellow backdrop with the word “PETE” in bold blue in...

Samsung OMN and OMN-D Digital Signage Fosters a New Era of Business

Samsung OMN and OMN-D Digital signage products are helping quick service restaurants (QSRs) and other businesses communicate with customers. A new set of solutions designed to meet the rapidly increasing demand for quick service restaurant (QSR) environments, the Samsung OMN and OMN-D products provide a range of display options. Samsung entered the QSR market about six years ago, and the company says that today’s market conditions, which include the use of apps driving business towards services such as Doordash, Grubhub and UberEats, as well as Millennial purchase habits, are greatly impacting a number of markets. The company says that businesses are taking the data cultivated from apps, and applying that information to digital signage and offering pro-integrator initiatives such as customer loyalty programs. Andrew Catellier, senior business development manager, Samsung Electronics, mentions that some of the information included in digital signage applications include calorie counts, which are required by law for restaurant chains that have more than five restaurants. “The current law has been suspended I think, but you are seeing the trend, but everything is moving to a health...

Church of MO: 2009 Harley-Davidson VRSCF V-Rod Muscle

Let us open our hymnals to the song of the 60-degree liquid-cooled Porsche-designed V-Rod engine, whose 2001 launch represented the last Radical Departure for Harley-Davidson. With its hydroformed frame and underseat gas tank, this bike was the way to the future, one that sadly ended after 2017. In this review of the new V-Rod Muscle from 10 years ago, you can feel Pete “the Rock’s” pain as he struggles to produce faint praise. Ashes to ashes, dust to dust. Like the new, robust chassis on Harley-Davidson’s touring machines, news about a brand new V-Rod is only weeks old, but like the touring bikes, our time at the recent ‘09 H-D model launch presented an opportunity to cop a ride on the new V-Rod Muscle.The long, low and clean look of this latest VRSC family member strikes a familiar pose to that of the other two V-Rods, the intimidating blacked-out (and now Dark Custom member) Night Rod Special and the more simple but classic-looking V-Rod. The LED stop/turn/tail-light integrated into the rear fender is a brilliant design feature. Also note here, and in other photos, the slightly more angular shapes of some of the bodywork. The Muscle is primarily a styling exercise. Rather...

Farmers being given a demonstration of the Japane-made riding type weeder at Evoor near Musiri in

Farmers being given a demonstration of the Japane-made riding type weeder at Evoor near Musiri in Tiruchi district   Next to the modern paddy transplanter, the Cooperative Department has introduced a Japanese-made modern riding type weeder with many features. It was demonstrated on a field at Evoor near Musiri a few days ago. The imported weeder is said to be among a very few riding type weeders available in the country. It is said to be a replacement for cono weeder and power operated weeders, which are commonly available in different areas. The new machine removes weeds on four rows simultaneously. It takes just 45 minutes to remove weeds on one acre of land as against four days required by the cono weeder. The riding type weeder requires just a rider. It can be operated on any soil. Besides uprooting the weeds, the weeder buries them in the sub surface of the soil. The weeds subsequently become organic matter to the soil. The weeder cuts the extended roots of the crop thereby increasing the number of tillers to give more yield. K.C. Ravichandran, Joint Registrar, Cooperatives, Tiruchi, told The Hindu that the riding type weeder had possessed features to simplify the weeding ...
