If you grew up at a time when floor lamps were popular, you probably have a few memories of them. You almost certainly knocked one over at some point by running through the house or — even worse — playing ball in the house. Or, if you were lucky enough to have a floor lamp with a three-way bulb, you could spend hours entertaining yourself with the bright/brighter/brightest settings. Admittedly, I may not have had the most exciting childhood. You may not have thought much about floor lamps lately. Or maybe that 100-year grounding your parents gave you after breaking the lamp as a kid technically remains in place, so you have a mental block about floor lamps. But modern floor lamps offer different and contemporary designs versus their counterparts from a few decades ago. Newer lamps may use LED lighting, which provides a pleasing type of lighting that’s also cost-effective and efficient. Selecting a floor lamp becomes an easier process if you understand how you want to use it. Floor lamps come in many different designs and use different types of lighting. Floor lamps are about more than just the type of lighting they provide. Floor lamps are about style, too. Now, we know we...

There is a large group of people who have never used a Mac and a set

There is a large group of people who have never used a Mac and a set of ardent Mac users who claim they’d never use a Windows PC. This article is for neither group. It’s for the Mac users who have some curiosity about what’s going on in the other camp, particularly with the arrival of new Windows 10 features and hardware like the Surface line, from the massive Studio down to the Surface Go. Maybe you’re fascinated by the vast selection of Windows computer formats, including ultraportables, like the LG Gram, a full-size laptop that weighs just two pounds, and convertibles that do double duty as tablets and laptops. Then there are super high-powered gaming rigs, which you can build by yourself with hand-chosen, upgradeable parts. On the other end of the spectrum, if you want a teeny tiny computer, you can get something like the Intel NUC that’s less than half the size (and price) of Apple’s smallest option, the Mac mini. You can even get a USB stick that’s actually a PC that you can plug into the back of an HDTV, such as the Lenovo Ideacentre Stick 300. Maybe you’re intrigued by Windows 10 capabilities like touch-screen support, face-login, VR, and accessib...

There are many ways to turn a CAD design into a physical reality. Both subtractive and additive manufacturing can be used to create parts with digital precision. For the best results, choose a manufacturing process that aligns with the structural and economic needs of your design. Most parts can be made with either 3D printing or CNC machining. CNC production will usually create higher quality parts if the design can easily be made with subtractive manufacturing. However, due to cost, complexity, or production speed, 3D manufacturing might be a better choice for your product. CNC machining is a subtractive manufacturing process. A CNC machined product is created by selectively cutting a block of material until it is in the desired shape. This manufacturing method is best used to create durable parts and structural components. The most common materials used for CNC manufacturing are stainless steel and aluminum. Brass, polycarbonate, ABS, and nylon are also viable options. CNC products have great structural integrity and can be produced with extremely smooth finishes. The CNC manufacturing process has higher dimensional accuracy and produces detailed parts with better mechanical...

The best no-equipment workout to try outside this bank holiday

But it’s not over yet people – and this bank holiday weekend is set to be a scorcher. Which means there is time to squeeze in a few more outdoor workouts before the cold sets in. But how can you work out effectively in the great outdoors? Is there a way to challenge your entire body without weights, a spin bike, or any kind of kit? We asked the Marvin Burton, head of fitness at Anytime Fitness, to create a bespoke no-equipment workout – perfect for sunny days when you don’t want to be cooped up in a gym. Transitioning from a standing to prone position (lying flat with chest down) is very demanding and will elevate your heart rate. The push-up is only a small component of this exercise. The strength in your shoulders and core will be improved and therefore give a greater return from the exercise. More importantly, from a health perspective having a strong set of glutes and hamstrings will dramatically reduce your chances of back injury or pain. I like using the bench because it allows us to move the hips up and down and really stretch and develop the core muscles. Although the position of being inclined may take some pressure off the shoulders, it certainly won’t from the core. ...

Jagged roof tops Jennifer Bonner’s Haus Gables in Atlanta dezeen-logo dezeen-logo

American architect Jennifer Bonner has topped this slender white house in Atlanta with an asymmetrical roofline to make the most of the space on its tight plot. Bonner, who runs architecture studio MALL, completed the three-storey Haus Gables in Atlanta’s Old Fourth Ward neighbourhood. It sits on a 24-­foot­ (7.3-metre) wide plot with a breadth of just 18 feet (5.5 metres) – the same width as a mobile home. The project features a cluster of six gables combined to form the single roof, creating a dramatic result that draws a strong contrast to other homes in the area. Bonner came up with the jagged roofline for the property following years exploring the city’s residential architecture. “I spent a few years lecturing, writing and conceptualising these ideas [in Atlanta] setting up a strategy which I would call the ‘roof plan’, as an ideology that might inform space in the domestic interior,” she told Dezeen. The roof’s elaborate pitches are left exposed on the top floor of the residence and are the main feature of the interior design.  “The underbelly of the gable roofs creates an airy, lofty space filled with ample natural light in...

Pretoria West Aug 27, 2019 (Thomson StreetEvents) — Edited Transcript of Exxaro Resources Ltd earnings conference call or presentation Thursday, August 22, 2019 at 9:00:00am GMT Good morning, ladies and gentlemen, and welcome to our results presentation for the 6 months ended 30th June, 2019.

My name is Mzila Mthenjane, and I’m the executive Head for Stakeholder Affairs at Exxaro. I’m feeling good this morning.
