Southwire is expanding its hand tool lineup with a more robust line of strippers and cutters.

Southwire is expanding its hand tool lineup with a more robust line of strippers and cutters. Up first on our plate is the Southwire Forged Romex Stripper. SUPPORT OUR ADVERTISERSgoogletag.cmd.push(function() { googletag.display(‘div-gpt-ad-1389975325257-0′); }); We put Southwire’s new Forged Romex Stripper to work in our shop. So far, we really like what we see. The new forged Romex stripper is made from heavy-duty…you guessed it…forged steel. But it’s not just a Romex Stripper. Once you pull off the outer jacket, you can prep the wires inside with the included single 14 and 12-gauge strippers. You’ll also find a wire loop on one jaw and 6-32/8-32 screw shears. As you make your way up to the jaw tips, it’s obvious these are far from your cheap stamped steel wire strippers. Wide jaws with solid knurling can accommodate Romex and help you grab, pull, and twist wire (including Romex) to your heart’s content.

China: Export volume of purple sweet potatoes slightly smaller this year

The Chinese export volume of purple sweet potatoes declined this year because of unstable weather conditions in production areas across the country. The price did not experience significant fluctuations. The price of purple sweet potatoes is more or less on the same level as around the same time last year.” This is according to manager Chen of Guangdong Fuyi Agricultural Product Co., Ltd. “We have farms in Hainan, Guangdong, Guangxi, Yunnan, and Hunan. The overall surface areas of our farms is more than 333 hectares. The main sweet potato variety that we produce on our farms is the purple sweet potato, which is purple inside and out. The wide distribution of our production areas guarantees year-round supply of sweet potatoes. Our company mainly exports sweet potatoes to Canada and Europe. The retail volume in the first half of this year was around 600 tons. That is more or less the same as in the first half of last year. The export volume of purple sweet potatoes is relatively small in comparison with the regular potato, which is a common product in overseas markets. However, more and more consumers show an interest in purple sweet potatoes. The European market deman...

A murine preclinical syngeneic transplantation model for breast cancer precision medicine

↵† Present address: Department of Melanoma Medical Oncology, University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center, Houston, TX 77054, USA. We previously demonstrated that altered activity of lysophosphatidic acid in murine mammary glands promotes tumorigenesis. We have now established and characterized a heterogeneous collection of mouse-derived syngeneic transplants (MDSTs) as preclinical platforms for the assessment of personalized pharmacological therapies. Detailed molecular and phenotypic analyses revealed that MDSTs are the most heterogeneous group of genetically engineered mouse models (GEMMs) of breast cancer yet observed. Response of MDSTs to trametinib, a mitogen-activated protein kinase (MAPK) kinase inhibitor, correlated with RAS/MAPK signaling activity, as expected from studies in xenografts and clinical trials providing validation of the utility of the model. Sensitivity of MDSTs to talazoparib, a poly(adenosine 5′-diphosphate–ribose) polymerase (PARP) inhibitor, was predicted by PARP1 protein levels and by a new PARP sensitivity predictor (PSP) score developed from integrated analysis of drug sensitivity data of human cell lines. PSP score–based classification of The Can...

Actors want to be singers and singers want to be actors. The hacker equivalent to this

Actors want to be singers and singers want to be actors. The hacker equivalent to this might be that 3D printers want to be laser cutters or CNC machines and laser cutters want to be 3D printers. When [Kurt] and [Lawrence] discovered their tech shop acquired a 120 Watt Epilog Fusion laser cutter, they started thinking if they could coax it into cutting out 3D shapes. That question led them to several experiments that were ultimately successful. The idea was to cut away material, rotate the work piece, and cut some more in a similar way to how some laser cutters handle engraving cylindrical objects. Unlike 3D printing which is additive, this process is subtractive like a traditional machining process. The developers used wood as the base material. They wanted to use acrylic, but found that the cut away pieces tended to stick, so they continued using wood. However, the wood tends to char as it is cut. In the end, they not only had to build special jigs and electronics, they also had to port some third party control software to solve some issues with the Epilog Fusion cutter’s built in software. The final refinement was to use the laser’s raster mode to draw surface detail on the p...
