Brazilian steelmaker Companhia Siderúrgica Nacional (CSN) has confirmed that it is in advanced negotiations over the divestment of its assets in Europe. This could well be concluded in a relatively short period of time, says the company`s president of the board of directors Benjamin Steinbruch during the financial second-quarter report conference with analysts monitored by Kallanish. The company is looking for buyers for its Portugal flat steel producer Lusosider and the German long steel manufacturer Stahlwerk Thüringen (SWT) (see Kallanish passim). The executive said that the sale of the company`s assets abroad is currently being helped by the exchange rate and the current positive momentum of operations in Portugal and Germany. Good steel demand in Europe is also helping. This follows the sale of CSN subsidiary Heartland to US steel producer Steel Dynamics for $400 million in May. “We have strong performance at Lusosider supported by a growing Spanish economy and the recovery of demand in that country, being the main market of the Portuguese unit. In Germany we have also strong performance and margins,” says Steinbruch adding that CSN has already hired a bank to advise...

Maleah Davis to Be Buried in ‘My Little Pony’ Casket Custom Made by Texas Company: ‘It Was Very Emotional’

The final resting place of Maleah Davis has been made to encapsulate the cheerful whimsy the Texas 4-year-old delighted in, as the little girl will be buried in a casket adorned with artwork from “My Little Pony.” The custom design is the work of Trey Ganem’s SoulShine Industries, which received a flood of requests from strangers familiar with Maleah’s tragic death to create a casket representative of her spirit and innocence.  “My passion purpose is to help others, and I couldn’t fathom [her death],” Ganem said. “I have kids, they’re grown now, and my heart hurt; I just wanted to do what I could to help the family.” Maleah was last seen alive April 30 entering the apartment complex she lived in with her mother and mother’s fiance at the time, Derion Vence.  Days later, Vence claimed to have been attacked by three men who abducted Maleah, but investigators said his story did not add up. Vence was arrested and charged in connection to her disappearance, though he denies killing her. About a month after she vanished, Maleah’s remains were found in a black garbage bag near a freeway outside of the town of Hope, Arkansas on May 31.  “She touched the lives of many; our shining, beaut...

How To Reverse Engineer Mechanical Designs For 3D Modeling

If you’re interested in 3D printing or CNC milling — or really any kind of fabrication — then duplicating or interfacing with an existing part is probably on your to-do list. The ability to print replacement parts when something breaks is often one of the top selling points of 3D printing. Want some proof? Just take a look at what people made for our Repairs You Can Print contest. Of course, to do that you need to be able to make an accurate 3D model of the replacement part. That’s fairly straightforward if the part has simple geometry made up of a primitive solid or two. But, what about the more complicated parts you’re likely to come across? In this article, I’m going to teach you how to reverse engineer and model those parts. Years ago, I worked for a medical device company where the business model was to duplicate out-of-patent medical products. That meant that my entire job was reverse engineering complex precision-made devices as accurately as possible. The goal was to reproduce products that were indistinguishable from the original, and because they were used for things like trauma reconstruction, it was critical that I got it right. We were reverse engineering parts wit...

Big Plastic User Japan Fights Waste Ahead of G-20 Summit

TOKYO (AP) — Japan has a plastic problem.In a country where cleanliness and neat packaging have long been considered good service, almost everything, from single bananas to individual pieces of vegetables, pastries, pens and cosmetics is sold plastic-wrapped. But as world leaders descend on Osaka for the two-day G-20 summit that starts Friday, Japan will attempt to become a leader in environmental policy at the same time it plays catch-up with countries that already have well-defined goals in place. In the months leading up to the G-20 summit, Japanese officials have delivered full-throated endorsements of future bans on single-use plastics, beach cleanup efforts and more research into alternatives such as bioplastics. The problem is, the enforcement and timing of the directives have yet to match measures already in place in the EU — including sweeping legislation passed earlier this year that will ban single-use plastic in all member states by 2021. Just last summer, Japan was criticized for failing to sign the G-7 Plastics Charter, the only country to do so besides the United States. At a mid-June meeting of G-20 environmental ministers in Karuizawa, Japan brokered an agreeme...

It’s a technology that can be used with the OPC Unified Architecture (UA) and time-sensitive networking (TSN) to deliver robust embedded systems, but the combination is relatively new. I spoke with Brett Murphy, Senior Director of Business Development for the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) at RTI, and Costantino Pipero, Founder and Chief Technology Officer at Beeond, about these technologies. Can you summarize the new architecture approach that you (RTI and Beeond) are proposing in regard to DDS, OPC UA, and TSN? OPC UA is the prevalent technology in industrial automation for moving data and information from field devices to back-end applications. It offers a “client-server” model for applications (typically clients) to interact with a complex system (implemented as a set of servers). Importantly, it also allows introspection and control...

12 TV Series Whose Sets Will Intoxicate Design-Minded People

https://www.wsj.com/articles/12-tv-series-whose-sets-will-intoxicate-design-minded-people-11561139041 IN MY HOUSE, the fastest way to torpedo a perfectly good Friday night is to reach for the remote control without a plan. I’ll start by staring down the offerings on Netflix, a digital Hydra that sprouts two new series for every one you contemplate. My husband will then request a due-diligence scroll through Amazon Prime, Hulu and our ever-more-dejected DVR. By the time we’ve done the rounds, we’re too sapped to make a decision. What a relief it would be to have a selection of shows that’s been as expertly curated as, say, a drawing room on “The Crown.” Or what if the filter were the design itself? To that end, Off Duty asked dozens of real-world interior designers to name their favorite series based on the strength of the shows’ décor as well as plot and characters, then narrowed it to these nine—including three whose aesthetics are so notable our panel recommended them despite finding the shows otherwise lacking. And there are benefits beyond diversion: Even casual décor fans can be inspired to bring a touch of the shows’ visual savvy into their own living rooms. According to ...

‘Knitting Has Always Been Political’: Ravelry Bans Pro-Trump Content, and Reactions Flood In

But on Sunday, Ravelry, a popular website for knitters and crocheters, took a political stand when it announced that it was banning content that supports President Trump, in what it said was a resolution against white supremacy. “We cannot provide a space that is inclusive of all and also allow support for open white supremacy,” the site said in a statement explaining the decision. “Support of the Trump administration is undeniably support for white supremacy.” The policy applies to content on the site, including knitting patterns and forum posts, but not to people, according to Ravelry, which said it still welcomed Republicans and those with conservative political views. “You can still participate if you do in fact support the administration, you just can’t talk about it here,” the statement said, adding that “hate groups and intolerance are different from other types of political positions.” The announcement led to a swift and intense reaction from all corners of the knitting world, whose denizens range from twentysomethings in Brooklyn to grandmothers in the Midwest. Some people condemned the policy as liberal bias and promised to delete their accounts, while others said they...

Clean Clothes is a series examining the fashion industry’s impact on our planet, and the brands, technologies, and people helping us toward a cleaner, more environmentally conscious future. Norwegian brand Norrøna has made outdoors gear since 1929. It’s a family-run company that employs fewer than 100, and its CEO, Jørgen Jørgensen, is the founder’s great-grandson. It’s also one of the most innovative makers of outdoor gear in the world. In 1977, Norrøna introduced Europe to GORE-TEX membranes. It was the first brand on the continent to use PTFE laminates, one of the outdoor industry’s true performance breakthroughs. Now, forty years later, Norrøna is – like many Scandinavian brands – leading the global charge toward sustainable fashion. But true to their name (and the name of their founder), they’re doing it boldly. Case in point: the Norrøna oslo GORE-TEX insulated Parka, a winter coat that aims to radically reduce the environmental impact of high-performance outerwear. The Norrøna oslo insulated is an all-weather parka designed for cold and wet conditions, and its sustainability creds are impressive. On the outside, the jacket’s GORE-TEX 2L membrane is faced with a recycled p...
