After Narendra Modi And Rajinikanth, Akshay Kumar To Go Into The Wild With Bear Grylls

Akshay Kumar’s schedule is filled to the brim where he is playing polar opposite characters. Do you think I am joking? Well, take a look at these projects (according to IMDb) and tell me if I am joking: Sooryavanshi, Laxxmi Bomb, Prithviraj, Bell Bottom, Bachchan Pandey, Mahila Mandali, Ikka, Housefull 5, Holiday 2, Hera Pheri 3, and Crack. And in the middle of all this he has found the time to do some hardcore hiking with Bear Grylls. How?! Kumar will become the third Indian to collab with Bear Grylls after PM Narendra Modi’s visit to the Jim Corbett National Park in Uttarakhand and Superstar Rajinikanth’s trip to the Bandipur Tiger Reserve in Karnataka. According to News 18, Kumar will be doing his episode of Man Vs Wild in the Bandipur Tiger Reserve as well. He was actually snapped arriving at the Mysore airport for his shooting. You can check out the pic here. In case you don’t notice him, he’s in the camo suit. So, not your fault. Karnataka: Actor Akshay Kumar arrived at Mysore, earlier today, to shoot for an episode of ‘Man vs Wild’ with British adventurer Bear Grylls. pic.twitter.com/P3tNrJAfqx Kumar has a huge fan-following and t...

Is it really possible to build a rotary encoder out of a flattened tin can and

Is it really possible to build a rotary encoder out of a flattened tin can and a couple of photodetectors? Sure it’s possible, but what kind of resolution are you going to get from such a contraption? Is there any way that you’d be able to put them to work in a DIY project like a CNC router? If you pay attention to the basics then the answer is yes, and [HomoFaciens] wants to prove that to you with this detailed video on homebrew encoder design. Faithful Hackaday readers will no doubt recognize [HomoFaciens] from a number of prior appearances on these pages, including this recent hardware store CNC router build. When we first ran across his builds, we admit a snicker or two was had at the homemade encoders, but if you watch the results he manages to get out of his builds, you quickly realize how much you can accomplish with very little. The video is a primer on encoder design, walking you through the basics of sensing rotation with phototransistors, and how a pair of detectors is needed to determine the direction of rotation. He also discusses the relative merits of the number of teeth in the chopper; turns out more isn’t necessarily better. And in the end he manages to turn a c...

Hilton has just announced the details of their 18th hotel brand, called Tempo by Hilton. Hilton has been on a roll lately when it comes to introducing new brands that I struggle to differentiate, including Signia Hilton, Motto by Hilton, and more. Before we talk specifically about Tempo by Hilton, I think it makes sense to talk about why hotel groups start new hotel brands. It’s not necessarily to be able to sell to consumers, but rather to be able to sell to investment companies. For the most part, the global hotel chains don’t own most of their hotels, but rather they just have management or franchise contracts for them. So the reason they create so many new brands is so they have something to pitch to investors. They try to make each brand seem unique, in hopes of luring a company to build a city’s first Tempo rather than third Hilton, for example. That’s why there’s also such little innovation when it comes to new hotel brands. Instead I feel like we just see each of the major hotel brands introduce similar concepts over and over. An approachable lifestyle brand curated to serve a growing segment of “modern achievers” who seek a hotel experience that reflects their ambition...

Hat Cannabis eine Zukunft in der Zahnheilkunde? – Cannabis in der Medizin

Das Potenzial der Cannabispflanze ist enorm, egal ob als Rohstoff, als Nährstofflieferant oder als Medizin. Gerade im medizinischen Bereich gewinnt Cannabis in den letzten Jahren stark an Bedeutung und die Zahl unterschiedlicher Diagnosen, bei denen Cannabis verordnet wird, nimmt stetig zu. Früher oder später stellt sich da natürlich die Frage, ob Cannabis als Medizin auch in der Zahnheilkunde Verwendung finden wird und wie es zur Mundgesundheit beitragen kann. Dass ein Zahnarzt demnächst seinem Patienten empfehlen wird, Cannabis zu rauchen, ist eher unwahrscheinlich. Denn das Rauchen ist generell eher schlecht für die Gesundheit, das gilt auch für den Mundraum und die Zähne. Es verursacht verstärkte Zahnbeläge, Karies, Zahnfleischerkrankungen und erhöht das Risiko für Krebserkrankungen im Mund- und Halsbereich. Darüber hinaus können sich die Zähne verfärben und der Geschmackssinn kann sich verändern. Dies sind allerdings alles Probleme, die das Rauchen mit sich bringt. In anderen Einnahmeformen steckt durchaus das Potenzial, auch in der Zahnmedizin verwendet zu werden. In Untersuchungen hat sich gezeigt, dass der Wirkstoff Cannabidiol (CBD) den Knochenverlust reduzieren kann, d...

Gear-obsessed editors choose every product we review. We may earn money if you buy from a link. How we test gear. High-end rotomolded coolers are great for keeping your food and drinks cold for days, but you need to pack them right. Here are some easy tips to maximize ice retention and get the best performance out of your cooler. Loading a warm cooler that has been stored in a hot garage or car will waste a significant amount of ice to just bring down the temperature of the cooler. Store your cooler at room temperature and then pre-cool it with ice overnight before packing it the next day. Help your cooler out by loading frozen steaks or refrigerated six-packs. It can take over a pound of ice to cool a six-pack that started at room temperature, and a frozen steak will thaw perfectly over a couple days in a cooler. The ideal ice-to-contents ratio is 2:1, so don’t expect a cooler full of food with just a sprinkle of ice on top to stay cool for very long. Pack as much ice as you can. Use a second cooler when necessary. Not all ice is created equal. The ice from your refrigerator is warmer than ice from a commercial freezer. Dry ice mixed with regular cubed ice is an ideal co...

Thomas Markle shares photos and video of Meghan’s childhood

Thomas Markle has shared extraordinary unseen photos and films of his Duchess daughter for a 90-minute bombshell documentary where he spoke of their loving and close relationship before she dumped him for Harry and his ‘stiff’ royal family. The 75-year-old also described his pride after the birth of his daughter in August 1981 as he opened up to Britain’s Channel 5 in a film, watched by 1.2million people last night – just days after the Duke and Duchess of Sussex started their new life in Canada.  Mr Markle says Meghan’s childhood years were ‘the happiest of my life’ as he shared dozens of pictures of her key moments including on the day she entered the world and as father and daughter bonded while he changed her nappies in the following days. There are also a string of happy photos of Meghan with her mother Doria Ragland, including at family Christmas parties and summer picnics near their home in California, before she moved in with Thomas as a teenager after the couple’s divorce.  Mr Markle has also shared rare home video footage of Meghan’s first school productions where he says a star was born, her high school graduation,...

Danash’s Northern Tempest is not hard to find at the Winter Equestrian Festival (Florida). She is

Danash’s Northern Tempest is not hard to find at the Winter Equestrian Festival (Florida). She is quite literally spotted. The 7-year-old Friesian-Appaloosa (Danash K—Chief’s Bold Angel) stands out from the bays, grays and blacks traditionally found in the hunter ring. But owner Laura Reece knows “Dani’s” coloring is not her only defining quality. “Dani is just a fun, willing horse,” Reece said. “If you chip something or land awkwardly, she doesn’t care. She just keeps going. She’s got a really great demeanor about her.” Reece grew up competing on her high school’s equestrian team in Newtown, Pennsylvania, and her riding career was spent primarily on lesson horses. While in college, Reece took a break from horses to focus on her academics. Though she loved the sport, work and life kept it on the back burner. But when her second daughter started riding lessons at DeVaux Farms in Berryville, Virginia, Reece decided to swing back into the saddle. “It is nice to get to have the time to spend on it again,” Reece said. “That’s something that’s nice about riding. It’s something you can do when you’re 5 or you’re 85. It’s a lifetime sport.” In 2017, Reece and her family moved to Palm Be...

T-Mobile launches GoTo line of accessories and device essentials

When you’re buying accessories for your new device, you probably don’t go directly to your carrier because a lot of them are overpriced. But T-Mobile has now launched their very own line of accessories called GoTo and the pricing is relatively affordable. You will now be able to purchase smartphone cases, screen protectors, cables and various chargers for devices from Samsung, OnePlus, and other supported brands. Pricing ranges from $10-$45, depending of course on what you’re buying for your smartphone. The chargers are the most affordable ones that you can get from their GoTo line, starting at $9.99. There are various smartphone cases available as well, starting at $19.99. When it comes to screen protectors, they are a bit more expensive with $24.99 for film, $39.99 for glass, and $44.99 for the curved glass. They’re also including an easy-installation frame so that should be a bonus especially if you have trouble installing those protectors. Beautiful Shoes Buying accessories from carriers is not always that prudent and while the T-Mobile GoTo accessories are still cheaper than others, you can also find more affordable 3rd party accessories on Amazon or other retailers. Quali...

The Female Leaders at Joor and NuOrder Are Disrupting Wholesale

The tech industry has two crusaders aiming to bring wholesale management into the digital age — and they both happen to be female. Olivia Skuza, co-founder and co-CEO of NuOrder, and Kristin Savilia, CEO of Joor, came to the industry from different backgrounds but have found themselves on the precipice of implementing significant digital change. “In 2010, B2B technology wasn’t keeping pace with the digital innovations in B2C,” said Skuza. “My co-founder and I ran a digital agency working with brands, retailers and trade shows. We’d walk trade show floors and see firsthand that the wholesale process was broken. Brands were still operating on pen, paper and fax machines, leaving room for error as well as money on the table.” For Savilia, she first gained insight into some of the struggles wholesalers faced as a buyer at Macy’s. Then, after moving to XO Group — where she oversaw the digital transformation of the local marketplace for the company’s wedding website, The Knot — Savilia felt prepared to return to wholesale. While Savilia and Skuza also hope to change the gender imbalance in the wholesale market, they faced immediate challenges from the get-go: finding enough women to ...

Mexico’s Waste Eco Treatment considered a variety of shredding equipment before it found an option that

Mexico’s Waste Eco Treatment considered a variety of shredding equipment before it found an option that offered the versatility it sought. Many within the U.S. recycling industry have a common misperception that when it comes to industrial standards and environmental regulations Mexico represents the Wild West. Waste Eco Treatment (WET), a company based the state of Querétaro, Mexico, is committed to breaking those perceptions, which it says simply do not reflect the reality of the country, its people or WET’s long-standing mission to care for the environment through the responsible collection, storage, transportation and recycling of hazardous waste. Santiago Ortega, an executive at WET, had been on a mission for more than a year to find the right equipment for WET’s ambitious expansion plans. Ortega had taken a global tour, attending recycling conventions and expositions and visiting recycling equipment manufacturers in his effort to find the right equipment. While attending ISRI2019, the annual convention hosted by the Institute of Scrap Recycling Industries (ISRI), Washington, in Los Angeles this April and WasteExpo in Las Vegas in May, one line of size-reduction equipment i...
