Sure, some jobs are a dream and some are soul crushing. Some provide prestige while others

Sure, some jobs are a dream and some are soul crushing. Some provide prestige while others merely a paycheck. But the one office gig equaliser? The fact that most positions require employees to spend the majority of their day sitting down. And if you’re on your butt for hours on end, you definitely want a well crafted chair at your disposal. That’s right, don’t underestimate the importance of a good desk chair. A solid, comfortable chair lends itself to a productive and efficient work environment. An uncomfortable chair leads to constant fidgeting and shifting, which can be highly distracting. Even worse, it may result in leg issues, back strain, or carpal tunnel syndrome. And having a day job is painful enough already.  Lumbar Support: Let’s get real; if a chair doesn’t provide adequate lower back support, you don’t want it. After all, sitting for extended periods can put strain on your back and cause you to slouch. We recommend looking for a chair that has adjustable lumbar support (for both height and depth). That way you can guarantee you’re not putting any undue stress on your body. Adjustability: If you want to maximise your comfort, it’s imperative to find a chair that’s...

Helter Spelter: lost Beatles footage from 1965 found in a bread bin

The film was found during the clearance of a house, and sees the Fab Four being interviewed in Cardiff in 1965. The footage sees John, Paul, George and Ringo joking around with the interview, before breaking into a rendition of ‘There’s No Business Like Show Business’. Additional footage found, from 1967, show The Beatles talking about the spiritual figure Maharishi Mahesh Yogi, and about their relationship to his readings. Speaking in response, John Lennon said: “Of course it’s not a cult and if we didn’t take it seriously we wouldn’t be here.” A third recording has also been found, also valued at £10,000, which sees Lennon playing an acoustic version of ‘God’, a solo song he released post-Beatles. “All four Beatles are in fine form throughout both of the Cardiff films, laughing and joking, while the interviewer tries to remain serious,” Fairweather remarked of the tapes. In other Beatles news, a newly discovered tape revealed that the band were in talks to make another album after ‘Abbey Road’. In the tape, which captures the tension that marred the Beatles’ final years, McCartney can also be heard saying, “I thought until this album that George’s songs weren’t that good.” Lat...

If you’re starting to feel chilly when you climb into bed at night, it may be

If you’re starting to feel chilly when you climb into bed at night, it may be time to change your duvet to one that’s going to keep you snug in the colder months ahead. You have two options – either go for a heavier tog duvet (ideally anything over 10 tog for winter) or get an all-seasons duvet (multiple duvets that you can attach together for the winter).  The duvet filling requires serious consideration. Synthetic microfibre duvets are good for allergy sufferers, as well as generally being more affordable. But those with deeper pockets may prefer the more luxurious feel of natural fillings, such as feather or down (or both combined). Some natural fillings, such as silk, are also good for allergy sufferers and there are also some specially-designed fillings available too, as with Rested Outlast All Seasons. ​Breathability is key if you’re prone to waking up sweaty and don’t forget the casing, which you don’t want to feel scratchy against your skin through your duvet cover. Finally, make sure the filling is evenly distributed and consider if you’ll want to be able to wash and dry your duvets at home. All the duvets listed here are available in sizes single, double, king and supe...

Cuisinart AirFryer Toaster Oven reviews: Here’s what people are saying

If you have even the smallest modicum of interest in kitchen appliances, you’ve probably heard about the latest craze it culinary helping hands: Air fryers.  Air fryers have been taking over the conversation in the world of kitchen creatives — but why? Well, for the most part, their convenience and health-conscious nature garner them big points. Who wants to buy a whole oil fryer setup for their kitchen anyway? Are you trying to have your entire home smelling like a McDonald’s? No thanks. While it’s easy to get sold on one of these things, actually choosing one is an entirely different story — the internet is basically flooded with options; enough to deter you from ever making a decision.  We want to help you out with that, so we’ve been breaking down what people are saying about the most popular air fryers, from the Ninja Foodi, to the Instant Vortex, and everything in between. (Get our list of all our top picks for the best air fryers here.) Another air fryer to grace that list is the Cuisinart AirFyer Toaster Oven. (Yes, a toaster oven!) Take a deep dive into what people are saying about Cuisinart’s entry into the air fryer game, an appliance that prides itself on its ample s...

More for Less: $8K Four vs. $8.2K Triple vs. $8.7K Twin + Video

“Chock full of bland mediocrity” was the original subhead for my second ride review of the 2015 Suzuki GSX-S750. It was a subhead EiC, Kevin Duke, rightly removed. I was a little harsh on the new Gixxus, and now in a group of its peers, the naked bike from Suzuki has proven itself to be quite the contender. Out of the three testers involved in this shootout, John “run-on sentence” Burns and Troy “I’ve ridden the new R1 more than you” Siahaan, it is I who is championing the GSX-S. On my ScoreCard the Aprilia Shiver came in third behind the FZ and Gixxus by less than two points. Burns and Siahaan didn’t see things the same way. In fact, none of us managed to agree. When the results were tallied, Siahaan ranked the Suzuki third, while Burns slotted the Yamaha into last place. But once we averaged the scores and included the Objective scores for Price, Weight, etc., a winner did emerge. It’s a little surprising, and here’s why. For 2015, the FZ-09 is even more of a hoot because Yamaha managed to fix the bike’s EFI/Ride Mode issues (see 2015 Yamaha FZ-09: New And Improved Fuel Injection!). What Yamaha failed to address, however, is the FZ’s marshmallowy suspen...

How robots are contributing to the metal finishing industry

The effective use of robotics is now prevalent in many types of manufacturing and industrial applications, and metal finishing is no different. Robots can perform many of the tasks conducted by humans, and they can usually complete them a lot faster and with fewer glitches. As the execution of robotics-based metal finishing processes creates the need for substantially advanced budgeting, companies usually experience a fast return on investment in the form of increased operating efficiency and lower cost.  Robotic techniques are now commonly used in processes for example sanding, edge-breaking (deburring), grinding and polishing. Automated work cells enable computerised processes to eradicate sharp edges, fins, burrs, and various other surface flaws over much shorter periods which is far quicker than human labour. Most of these work cells can easily be incorporated at the particular point of manufacturing with various other processes and systems that are already in place. The majority of mass finishing systems I have noticed so far utilise a large vibratory tumbler (click this link for more information about tumbling media used in machines) inside of which a finishing media whirl...

World’s First Zero-Emissions Top Handlers Introduced at the Port of Los Angeles

Increasing its commitment to combat the detrimental environmental effects of carbon emissions, the Port of Los Angeles unveiled its new Taylor ZLC976 zero-emissions top handlers, which rely on battery-powered electricity. Manufactured by Louisville, Miss.–based Taylor Machine Works, Inc., the pre-commercial, on-dock cargo-handling trucks are the first of their kind in the world. Through testing over the next year, the Port of Los Angeles will examine how the full capabilities of the machines aid in supporting more-efficient and cleaner cargo handling at the Everport Container Terminal. “Today shows we are making good on our pledge to do the hard work of advancing commercially feasible solutions to meet our goal of transitioning all cargo-handling equipment to zero emissions by 2030,” said Port of Los Angeles Executive Director Gene Seroka in a press release. “We’re excited to power up these battery-electric top handlers and test them under the real-world conditions of a working container terminal.” 4×2 Yard Truck The top handlers—also known as top picks—were presented on Oct. 2 during California Clean Air Day, when citizens are encouraged to engage in energy-conservation p...

Peeling Back the Layers For Beacon Roofing Supply, Inc. (NasdaqGS:BECN), United States Cellular Corporation (NYSE:USM)

In trying to determine the current valuation of Beacon Roofing Supply, Inc. (NasdaqGS:BECN) shares, we note that the Book to Market ratio of the shares stands at 0.878136. It’s commonly accepted that a Book to Market ratio greater than one indicates that the shares might be undervalued.  The book to market ratio has some limitations in certain industries however where intangible assets (such as knowledge) often are not represented on a balance sheet. The ratio is calculated by dividing the market price per share by book value per share. Many investors are concerned with the proper portfolio diversification. Stock portfolio diversification entails spreading the investment dollars around to help minimize risk. When investors are creating a portfolio, they may be looking to add a combination of growth, value, income, dividend, and foreign stocks. They may also be spreading out stock picks among various industries. Keeping a mix of stocks that perform differently under certain market conditions can help keep the portfolio afloat when the environment shifts. Holding a few large positions in a small number stocks may lead to trouble if the market turns sour and stock prices decline dr...
