Korea Steel: Environment Turning Even More Favorable In 2018

The steel sector index has been moving sluggishly recently despite the improving Chinese blast furnace spread, which moves in line with stock prices. This is largely due to doubts over whether the Chinese blast furnace spread can widen further in 2018. However, given the conditions that surround the steel sector in 2018, we have a positive view toward steel shares. The blast furnace spread is improving as the price of iron ore falls and steelmakers continue to gain more pricing power thanks to ongoing industry consolidations in China. In terms of demand, oil-producing countries’ steel demand is picking up on the back of oil price hikes and Chinese steel demand should also continue to grow thanks to the country’s infrastructure investments. Given the ongoing Chinese steel sector consolidations and a rise in iron ore supply globally, China’s blast furnace spread, which moves in line with steel share prices, should improve further in 2018 as raw material prices decline. Higher oil prices are expected to boost oil producers’ steel demand by about 5% in 2018. Soaring steel demand from these countries will have more impact on global steel supply-demand balance ...

In a remote pocket of Kansas, a former missile silo has been converted into multi-million dollar

In a remote pocket of Kansas, a former missile silo has been converted into multi-million dollar luxury bunkers for the wealthy to wait out the apocalypse. Welcome to the survival condo. It’s 8:15 on a sunny Tuesday morning and I’m standing 201 feet below ground. With my phone in hand (and, somehow, with service), I’m on the 15th floor underground of an old missile silo in remote Kansas that’s been converted into a luxury bunker. To get there, I flew from New York City to Atlanta, then hopped on a plane to Wichita, where I rented an SUV and drove nearly 200 miles to a secret location near a city called Concordia. With a population of just about 5,000 people, Concordia is your typical small American town, with a Main Street, an old movie theater and, just another 10 miles away, the Survival Condo Complex — a 54,000 square foot structure built inside an Atlas missile silo, a government structure built to withstand a 200 pound-per-square-inch atomic blast that once housed a nuclear warhead and now holds 12 high-end apartments costing upwards of 1.5 million dollars, built for rich people to withstand hurricanes, tornadoes, volcano eruptions, nuclear disasters...

ARIZONA — Many of today’s most successful professional rodeo stars finished in the money at several Fourth of July rodeos in the White Mountains, Prescott and Window Rock. Childhood hunger is not only a problem in poor countries around the world. It exists in our local communities. Of the 1,000 students attending Blue Ridge Elementary School, 600 qualify for free or reduced fee breakfast and lunch. Sadly, many of these youngsters have little or nothing to eat between their Friday school lunch and Monday’s school breakfast. The local chapter of the national Backpack Snacks program, aims to make a small but significant difference in the lives of these youngsters. Everyone knows that our youth are the future, and our society faces considerable challenges that these young people will have to help solve. Therefore, it is in all of our inter...

HVAC Pumps Global Market 2019 Industry Key Players, Trends, Sales, Supply, Demand, Analysis & Forecast By 2025

A new market study, titled “Discover Global HVAC Pumps By Upcoming Trends, Growth Drivers and Challenges” has been featured on WiseGuyReports. Report Summary:A heat pump is a device that transfers heat energy from a source of heat to what is called a heat sink. The global centrifugal pumps market has witnessed some volatility in its demand in the past few years mainly due to the downturn in the oil & gas upstream sector. However, the industry has started to recover in 2017 with an increase in spending and outlook is seems to be positive on account of increasing crude oil price and an increase in activity, especially in North America. Increasing concern towards wastewater treatment has been one of the major drivers in the past few years, which has helped to reduce the level of shock from oil & gas industry. Free Sample Report »https://www.wiseguyreports.com/sample-request/4244650-global-hvac-pumps-market-2019-by-manufacturers-regions The objective behind the study of the Global HVAC Pumps Market is to accurately describe, define, and estimate the overall size of the market.

I happen to be a particular fan of unisex watches, and NOMOS Glashütte timepieces are particular favorites

I happen to be a particular fan of unisex watches, and NOMOS Glashütte timepieces are particular favorites of mine. Many of its watches are sized for a male or female wrist, and they feature minimalist case and dial designs with a healthy dose of Bauhaus. Even the names of many of its collections, like Metro, Tetra  and Autobahn—give little away as to their intended audience. Now, just in time for summer, two new Aqua watches are being introduced . The Aqua series, as its name suggests, is designed for beach lovers, with sturdy steel cases and see-through casebacks that are “extra-water resistant” to 200 meters, according to the Germany-based brand. Available in the Ahoi and Club collections in July, the watches sport a red, white and blue palette that is both nautical and, of course, a Fourth of July favorite. These watches each have a “siren white” dial, with blue hands and red hour markers and a red small seconds hand. Arabic numerals are at 12, 2, 4, 8 and 10, and on the seconds subdial, blue Arabic numerals are at 20, 40 and 60. Superluminova detailing on the dial makes the watches practical and attractive from sunup til sundown. Both watches feature the NOMOS automatic ca...

LEDs deliver significant gains in light quality, move toward CSP future (MAGAZINE)

Since our last roundup of packaged LEDs, color quality and performance has changed dramatically. While there are still many commodity low-end LEDs and glare in some products remains an issue, there are far more premium-quality LEDs on the market. At the same time, the SSL industry is moving toward enhanced mid-power packages and chip-scale package (CSP) technology for many applications and stretching quality improvements across the low-to-super-high-power sectors. Let’s start with discussion of an LED family that touches several of the trends we mentioned in the opening paragraph. Seoul Semiconductor introduced the SunLike LED technology during the summer of 2017 with the architecture based on a violet emitter or pump in place of the more typical blue pump, and with a three-phosphor mix developed in partnership with Toshiba Materials. The spectral power distribution (SPD) mimics the sun and eliminates the blue energy peak that can potentially cause circadian issues for people exposed to the blue at night, and that some still believe is dangerous for the eye. Seoul recently released the results from research at a Korean medical school that associated working under SunLike LEDs wi...

Thermally rearranged (TR) polymers, which are considered the next-generation of membrane materials because of their excellent

Thermally rearranged (TR) polymers, which are considered the next-generation of membrane materials because of their excellent transport properties and high thermal and chemical stability, are proven to have significant drawbacks because of the high temperature required for the rearrangement and low degree of conversion during this process. We demonstrate that using a [3,3]-sigmatropic rearrangement, the temperature required for the rearrangement of a solid glassy polymer was reduced by 200°C. Conversions of functionalized polyimide to polybenzoxazole of more than 97% were achieved. These highly mechanically stable polymers were almost five times more permeable and had more than two times higher degrees of conversion than the reference polymer treated under the same conditions. Properties of these second-generation TR polymers provide the possibility of preparing efficient polymer membranes in a form of, for example, thin-film composite membranes for various gas and liquid membrane separation applications. Internal interconnected microvoids of polymers determined as free volume result from chain mobility and substantial packing disorder of covalently bonded polymer chains. Lately...

The 46 Best Shark Tank Products Under $25 On Amazon

Sometimes the most useful products come from smaller, independent entrepreneurs instead of the big brand name companies — but these products aren’t always easy to find when you’re just casually browsing through aisles. That’s where Shark Tank comes in. Not only does the show give a select few hopefuls the chance to team up with a successful investor, but they also get easy publicity for a product that the masses likely haven’t heard of before. Even the products that don’t get deals with the sharks can become wildly successful, and many of these genius products you can easily find right on Amazon. From a young kid pitching his dissolvable toy glue to the couple who came up with the fun wine glass that attaches directly to the bottle, there are hundreds of Shark Tank-approved products available on Amazon — but in an effort not to break the bank, I’ve also kept this slideshow to items under $25. Be warned: personal experience implores me to tell you that exploring Shark Tank products without boundaries can quickly lead to a hefty $300+ charge on your credit card, and while I choose to live my life with reckless abandon, I recognize that not every...
