Climate Activist Greta Thunberg: ‘From Now On, I Will Be Doing Death Metal Only’

Teenage climate-change activist Greta Thunberg says that she will be “doing death metal only” now that her fiery speech at the United Nations Climate Action Summit was turned into a killer metal song. The viral YouTube hit “Greta Thunberg sings Swedish Death Metal” is the work of John Meredith, drummer for the New York metal band SUAKA, who told Rolling Stone he created the clip because he was “very impressed” by Greta’s “passion and outrage. And the words she chose just evoked the darkness of the metal music I love: ENTOMBED, GOJIRA, AT THE GATES, SEPULTURA,” he said. Meredith copied Thunberg’s speech into Pro Tools and growled along to her words himself to make the delivery sound “metal enough.” “I guess I didn’t really have a specific intent other than to turn her brutal words into a metal song,” he told Rolling Stone. Earlier today, Thunberg shared a tweet containing Meredith’s video and included the message: “I have moved on from this climate thing… From now on I will be doing death metal only!!” The Swedish teenager gained international media attention in recen...

Santi Cazorla and Villarreal: chapter three of a love story that continues to defy and entertain

Time was running out, and Villarreal’s efforts had been in vain. But in the blink of an eye, an outpouring of emotion infused the atmosphere: El Madrigal erupted. Santi Cazorla scored his second of the game to restore parity, guiding his team to a 2-2 draw against reigning European champions Real Madrid. Cazorla’s 82nd-minute goal was emblematic of a footballing love story that had come full circle. Six months into his third spell at the club, he had found the back of the net in LaLiga for the first time that season. It was not the type of finish that is synonymous with this Villarreal team, and especially not the diminutive playmaker: at five foot four inches, he ghosted in behind Sergio Ramos and ahead of Marcelo to nod the ball past Thibaut Courtois.  The smallest player on the pitch quietly moved forward, sensing an opportunity to make the unlikely occur; patiently awaiting a chance to creep up on the stalwarts of Spanish football and remind them of his timeless quality. His first strike came via an expertly taken first-time shot, finessed into the bottom corner in the opening exchanges, and the spoils were shared in a 2-2 draw. Real Madrid were nothing to write home about, ...

3D printing evolves from fad to standard process in truck making

Layering tiny particles of plastic, metal and composites to make objects from three-dimensional math data “is a tool in the toolbox,” said Eric Starks, chief executive of FTR Transportation Intelligence. “It is a standard part of the process.” Volvo Trucks North America counts more than 500 examples of 3D printing of manufacturing tools and fixtures on the plant floor.  “When we started five or six years ago, we did have a lot of non-believers,” said Adam Crowder, manager of advanced manufacturing technologies at Volvo’s New River Valley plant in Dublin, Virginia. “It took time to start making parts, let people start using parts [and] let them see that maybe this is beneficial in what I do,” Crowder told FreightWaves.  Now ideas regularly come from line workers who visit Crowder’s team in a 1,000-square-foot air-conditioned lab inside the plant. Crowder also evangelizes 3D printing at a dozen Volvo Trucks plants globally, In the New River Valley plant, a digitally manufactured robot arm grabs and opens truck doors in the paint shop. A one-piece diffuser used to clean paint atomizers saves the company more than $1,000 on each diffuser, in part because multiple pieces were elimin...

Publisher – Motocross Action Magazine is the worlds leading publication about motocross and supercross.

Publisher – Motocross Action Magazine is the worlds leading publication about motocross and supercross. A: The average person can easily break off-road bikes into six simple categories: (1) Motocross. (2) Enduro. (3) Play/Trail. (4) Trials. (5) Dual Sport. (6) Adventure/Rally. But, when you try to pigeonhole the 2019 KTM 250XCF, it really doesn’t fit in any one of those categories. It isn’t a pure-bred motocross bike, even though it is based on a KTM 250SXF. It isn’t an enduro bike, because it is a little too high strung to be used for time keeping. It isn’t a trail/play bike, because its $9500 price tag pushes it into the upper stratosphere of 250cc dirt bikes. And, it sure as shootin’ is not a trials bike, dual-purpose street-legal bike or a Paris-Dakar replica. So, what is it? The 250XCF is a hybrid machine that is best suited to high-speed cross-country events. Think of the 250XCF as a KTM 250SXF motocross bike with a six-speed transmission and larger fuel tank. As conceived, it is designed to be all things to all people. Wanna race in the desert? Wanna do laps at your local motocross track? Wanna try to get to checkpoints early at the monthly enduro? Wanna have one bi...

7 Tips To Achieve Coffee-House Cold Brew At Home, According To A Small-Batch Roaster

Summer, spring, fall and even during the excruciating Chicago winter, you can find my boyfriend sipping on a chilled cup of joe. He’s a cold brew guy through and through. As a hot cup girl, I decided to gain a few points with my boyfriend and learn the art of creating the perfect cold brew at home. Home cold brew is not only easy to create, it saves a nice chunk of change compared to $4 and $5 cups you find in coffee shops across the country. As someone mildly obsessed with all things coffee ― I go so far as to roast my own for friends and family ― you can bet when it comes to determining a cold brewing process, I was going to do my research. Like most things on the internet these days, people have a lot of opinions on cold brew and how precisely you should make it. From coffee selection to grind size and containers, I’ve dug into it all. It’s very easy to get lost in the rabbit hole of extraction times and water chemistry, but the right equipment takes the guesswork out of making the perfect cold cuppa. As a result, I’ve compiled my best notes and put together my two cents on some simple tips and tools for those of you who want to become a cold brew hero for your significant ot...

Prototyping PCBs With Electrical Discharge Machining

Here at Hackaday, we thought we’d seen every method of making PCBs: CNC machining, masking and etching with a variety of chemicals, laser engraving, or even the crude but effective method of scratching away the copper with a utility knife. Whatever works is fine with us, really, but there still does seem to be room for improvement in the DIY PCB field. To whit, we present rapid PCB prototyping with electrical discharge machining. Using an electric arc to selectively ablate the copper cladding on a PCB seems like a great idea. At least that’s how it seemed to [Jake Wachlin] when he realized that the old trick of cutting a sheet of aluminum foil using a nine-volt battery and a pencil lead is really just a form of EDM, and that the layer of copper on a PCB is not a million miles different from foil. A few experiments with a bench power supply and a mechanical pencil lead showed that it’s relatively easy to blast the copper from a blank board, so [Jake] took the next logical step and rigged up an old 3D-printer to move the tool. The video below shows the setup and some early tests; it’s not perfect by a long shot, but it has a lot of promise. If he can control the arc better, this h...

Big tobacco’s high stakes bet on vaping as a way of replacing falling cigarette sales appeared to be folding in the face of intense concerns it is no healthier, with a cancelled mega-merger in the US and a revenue warning from London-listed Imperial Brands. The Davidoff, West and Gauloises Blondes cigarette maker said it expects net revenue for its financial year ending on Monday to grow by around 2%. Earnings per share is expected to be “broadly flat” at constant currency. This is due to a “challenging” next-generation product market in the US and “changes to our results expectations” in the Africa, Asia and Australasia division. Next-generation products include e-cigarettes and vapes. Reflecting the increased pressure on tobacco firms, Philip Morris International and Altria Group ended merger talks on Wednesday, partly over the increasingly fraught US vape market. Imperial Bands has “...
