2020 Toyota Camry TRD review: Can a Camry be sporty?

The Good The Camry TRD offers a superb powertrain anchored by a silken V6 engine, more style than you might expect, a well-controlled ride and even an aggressive-sounding exhaust system. The Bad While more engaging than any other version of this four-door family-hauler, the TRD model is still trying a bit too hard to be something it really isn’t. Toyota could have done a bit more to make this a driver’s car. The Bottom Line This TRD-modified sedan performs well, sounds good and looks aggressive. It could be the car for you if you want a vehicle with Toyota reliability and more pizzazz than a run-of-the-mill Camry. Be respectful, keep it civil and stay on topic. We delete comments that violate our policy, which we encourage you to read. Discussion threads can be closed at any time at our discretion. Ah, the venerable Toyota Camry, a car that’s as innocuous as it is ubiquitous. This ever-practical four-door is about as enticing as a new pair of slacks or even a coupon for half-off cheesy breadsticks with the purchase of a medium, one-topping pizza. Yes, it’s a wild and crazy ride! Long a symbol of automotive indifference, the Camry is easy prey. Even the c...

When you’ve been in the business of media blasting and painting for nearly 30 years, you

When you’ve been in the business of media blasting and painting for nearly 30 years, you tend to pick up a few ideas and tips that make life a little easier. For Jim Deardorff, who owns and operates Superior Coatings in Chillicothe, Missouri, those shortcuts can also mean a little more money in his pocket, since time literally is money in his business.  Over the years, Deardorff has media-blasted everything from classic cars and tractors to wrought iron lawn furniture and metal buildings. A few years ago, he even media-blasted and repainted a fighter jet that is on static display at the Chillicothe airport.  In the process of continually seeking new answers, he’s developed his own media mix and process, called Classic Blast (classicblast.com). It consists of a low-pressure cleaning process that uses a unique blend of fine, dense aluminum oxide, trace minerals, and graded walnut shells. Here are just a few of the tips Deardorff has discovered over the years that will help anyone facing a blasting job, whether it’s a classic tractor or a fighter jet. Preparation Is CrucialPower-wash the area you are media-blasting to remove surface contamination. Washing can reduce blasting time u...

A New Innovation in Glove Coatings — Occupational Health & Safety

The latest innovations in nitrile-based glove coatings have created a game-changing double-dip that takes the best of traditional palm coatings and rolls them into one unique glove treatment without sacrificing dexterity or tactile sensitivity. What’s new in coated work gloves? For a long time, the answer to that question has been, not much! There have been many innovations in the work gloves themselves, including far higher cut levels and coreless technology that makes hand protection lighter and less irritating. But the coatings we use to increase grip as well as abrasion and liquid resistance have remained pretty consistent. Traditional Glove Coatings Coated gloves are made by taking a machine-knit base glove and dipping it into the desired coating. Dipping ranges from a partial dip that covers the palm and fronts of the fingers, to a ¾ dip, to a fully dipped glove. Most coated gloves are single dipped, meaning they’re dipped only once. Some are double-dipped, meaning the glove is dipped, allowed to dry, and then dipped again to provide a thicker coating. For years, your choices in glove coatings have been polyurethane, nitrile, sandy nitrile, foam nitrile, or latex. An...

As Bars Stay Closed, Chicago’s Legendary Tamale Guy Tests Home Delivery

Chicago’s bars have been closed since March 17, and while some taverns have started to sell beer and wine to go, another familiar part of the city’s culture has been also forced to adjust: The Tamale Guy. Claudio Velez is the superhero without a cape who routinely makes his way through Chicago’s bars holding a red or blue cooler full of plastic bags filled with pork, cheese, or chicken tamales. This week, without bars full of potential customers, Velez has tested out home delivery. For more than a decade, Velez has sold his tamales inside bars that don’t have kitchens, rescuing hungry customers — often arriving late at night when patrons need sustenance to soak up alcohol, walking by tables and saying one word: “Tamales?” His popularity in Wicker Park, Bucktown, West Town, and Logan Square has inspired imitators. He is a beloved figure in Chicago’s tavern scene at bars like Innertown Pub, Green Eye Lounge, Bucktown Pub, and the dearly departed Club Foot. He shows up a bars almost at random. There is even a Twitter account that tracks him, but it’s not always super reliable. There’s an element of luck when bumping into Tamale Guy. For many, he’s a myth that needs to be seen to be...

GM Forges On Without U.S. Ventilator Contract After Trump Attack

General Motors Co. and ventilator maker Ventec Life Systems Inc. had much of what they needed in place to ramp up production of breathing machines that would help coronavirus patients survive and recover. They were just waiting on the Trump administration to place orders and cut checks. And then, just as frustration was mounting within the largest U.S. carmaker and its partner over the federal government finalizing the details, President Donald Trump went on the attack Friday. He accused the company of moving too slowly and charging too much, specifically criticizing Chief Executive Officer Mary Barra. As usual with “this” General Motors, things just never seem to work out. They said they were going to give us 40,000 much needed Ventilators, “very quickly”. Now they are saying it will only be 6000, in late April, and they want top dollar. Always a mess with Mary B. Invoke “P”. The Twitter missives were a remarkable turnabout from the night before, when Trump told Fox News he wasn’t invoking the Cold War-era Defense Production Act to compel manufacturers to make ventilators because companies including GM had already stepped up. Trump called on GM to open an assembly plant in Ohio...

ALP will retain its LexaLite line of injection molded lighting optics. Near-term plans incl...

Lensless on-chip microscopy platform shows slides in full view: Researchers develop low-cost, high resolution technology for improved optical imaging — ScienceDaily

When you look through a microscope, whatever is on the stage is magnified to a degree the naked eye can hardly imagine. While traditional microscopy techniques allow miniscule details to come into view, standard equipment doesn’t provide us with the full picture. Most optical microscopes have a limited field of view, only one to two millimeters. This is a major inconvenience for life scientists and pathologists who rely on microscopy to analyze and diagnose disease since prepared tissue samples have dimension in the centimeter range. To address this unmet clinical need, a new microscopy platform developed at UConn removes a central component of traditional microscopes — objective lenses. By going lensless, researchers can actually provide clinicians a fuller picture, leading to more accurate diagnoses. Guoan Zheng, a University of Connecticut professor of biomedical engineering, recently published his findings on a successful demonstration of a lensless on-chip microscopy platform in Lab on a Chip. This platform eliminates several of the most common problems with conventional optical microscopy and provides a low-cost option for the diagnosis of disease. Rather than...

Roof shingles represent an important chapter in the evolution of roofing materials. Up until the middle

Roof shingles represent an important chapter in the evolution of roofing materials. Up until the middle of the 19th century, wood and slate shingles or clay tiles were commonly used for roofing in Australia and elsewhere. Roofs were also laid by covering the surface with fabric or heavy paper, which was then coated with tar and sprinkled with sand for long-term protection. The process was further simplified with the introduction of paper pre-coated with tar and sand. The roof shingle, as we know it today, owes its origin to the inventiveness of Henry Reynolds, a roofing contractor from Grand Rapids, Michigan who cut up the tar-coated paper into rectangular pieces in 1903 to create asphalt shingles. Asphalt shingles continue to be a popular roofing choice in the building industry. Having evolved considerably since their introduction in the market at the turn of the 20th century, asphalt shingles today feature a fibreglass mat as the base layer coated with asphalt and ceramic granules. These roof shingles score high on wind and impact resistance, waterproofing, fire performance, style, appeal and affordability. However, there are several different types of roof shingles with mater...
