Purdue University Introduces Replica Shirt Featured on Netflix’s ‘Stranger Things’ Show

Atlanta, Ga. (September 18, 2019) – Purdue University, working in conjunction with CLC, its exclusive trademark licensing agent, has introduced a special-edition, replica Purdue shirt that appeared on an episode of Netflix’s “Stranger Things 3” this past summer.  During the Independence Day weekend episode of the show, one of the characters wore a light blue, ’80s style, short-sleeve Purdue shirt, which quickly created a social media buzz with Boilermakers excited to see Purdue merchandise featured on the popular show. Since the airing of the show, the Purdue Trademarks and Licensing Department has been working with CLC and Purdue licensee, Venley, to replicate the unique product that bears the vintage Purdue Pete logo on the left sleeve and Purdue in gold across the chest. “After much anticipation from Boilermaker fans, we are so excited to finally be able to offer the Purdue-branded shirt that was featured on ‘Stranger Things,’” said Erika Austin, Purdue’s manager of trademarks and licensing. “Venley did a remarkable job replicating the shirt from scratch. We appreciate their efforts in developing this special product for our fans.” The shirt will be carried at the Purdue Team...

For those of us who remember LED calculators, the HP 5082-7400 series red “bubble” displays hold

For those of us who remember LED calculators, the HP 5082-7400 series red “bubble” displays hold a special charm. Available in 3, 4, or 5-digit varieties, these multiplexed 7-segment displays provided countless hours of entertainment to those who would spell upside-down words on their pocket calculators. In case you happen to be lucky enough to have access to a few of these beautiful vintage display sticks, [Gigawipf] has designed a small driver PCB that lets you easily interface them to a modern microcontroller. At the heart of the board, aimed at either the 5082-7405 or 5082-7415 5-digit modules, are a pair of 74HC595 shift registers in tiny QFN packages. Five lines from one register drive one of the common cathodes for the selected digit, while the other register drives the eight anode lines through 330-Ohm resistors. The boards are slightly smaller than the width of the displays allowing you to stack them seamlessly for more digits, and eight header pins on each allow you to plug them into solderless breadboards for prototyping. The result is easy to drive with some simple code, and [Gigawipf] provides an example for Arduino as part of the project. The Eagle design files are...

We’ve been wondering when a power supply manufacturer would come up with a product able to

We’ve been wondering when a power supply manufacturer would come up with a product able to match the performance of Corsair’s AX1500i. Now more than three years old, the AX1500i remains unrivaled in our benchmark results thanks to its advanced digital platform. The company loves a challenge, though. Not willing to wait for the competition to catch up, Corsair is ready to extend its advantage even further. If you ask us, it’s strange to spend time and money on a new PSU when the existing one is already class-leading. But Corsair apparently wants to show everyone that it has the know-how and necessary partners to rock this industry at will. Enter the AX1600i. We’re naturally expecting great things from this model, given what we measured from the AX1500i. Currently, the best 1600W PSU is EVGA’s 1600 T2, and it’s based on an analog Super Flower platform. So of course we’re anxious to see how that holds up to an all-digital architecture. The 80 PLUS program starts looking obsolete in the context of advanced PSUs like this one. Even the organization’s highest rating (Titanium) cannot fully describe the potential of modern digital platfor...

While manual pepper mills tend to deliver a more consistent grind, the best electric pepper grinders

While manual pepper mills tend to deliver a more consistent grind, the best electric pepper grinders offer effortless, one-handed use that’s easy on the wrists and the eyes. Many home cooks love the sleek look of the often stainless steel, more modern-looking electric pepper grinders. It’s true that a battery-powered pepper grinder can be a bit heavier than a manual mill, but one-touch electric models are ideal for anyone looking for convenience and are especially great for those with painful conditions like arthritis. When shopping for an electric pepper grinder, a key factor to consider is the material of the grinding mechanism. Materials can vary, though most of the mills we found were ceramic or metal, typically stainless steel. A ceramic mill provides a more consistent grind while also being more versatile than metal. Electric pepper mills with ceramic grinders can be used for salt or other dried spices without concerns of corrosion of the materials over time. What’s more, the best electric pepper grinders boast several features to make the home cook’s life easier. The spice reservoir should be clear so it’s obvious when it’s time for a refill...

A fermented, carbonated tea known for containing probiotics and a hint of alcohol, kombucha is the

A fermented, carbonated tea known for containing probiotics and a hint of alcohol, kombucha is the latest natural health and wellness-oriented product to migrate from the periphery of homebrewers and hobbyists to mainstream retail shelves and foodservice display cases. Natural and wellness retail product tracker SPINS reports that the category has grown between 30% and 40% per year for the past five years. Husband and wife team Austin Sherman and Alexis Korman, founders and owners of Big Easy Bucha in New Orleans, can personally testify to this mainstreaming trend. Sherman had been a homebrewer and recipe tinkerer himself until Korman recognized that his skills were ready for the big time. The pair launched Big Easy Bucha in 2014, established a brand identity, developed varieties distinct from the prolific West Coast kombucha scene, and rode the trend’s meteoric rise into the limelight. “But anecdotally, we find that not many people have heard of it yet, even though it’s approaching a billion-dollar market,” Sherman says. “Think about craft beer at its inception 20 years ago; that’s where kombucha is now. It’s at an intersection of people wanting a carbonated optio...

HBO Will Release Series to Challenge the MCU & Disney+

With Disney+ coming soon — and set to inundate MCU enthusiasts with content spanning across their favorite comic book characters — the streaming platform has virtually cornered the market on superhero TV. While Netflix boasts The Umbrella Academy and the CW retains its set of easily digestible superhero stories, Disney+ will be on a different level — with silver screen supers set to steal the small screen.  From WandaVision and Hawkeye to She-Hulk, Ms. Marvel, and Falcon and the Winter Soldier, fans will be able to endlessly binge these shows, jumping from one to the next, as they follow multiple interweaving narratives, all contributing to what’s destined to become the most impactful cross-conversation between cinema and home-entertainment ever.  Will Disney+ become the new Netflix; will Amazon prime and Hulu suffer under the weight of unsurmountable competition? Maybe, but there’s one premium channel taking a significant stand — with a superhero soiree all its own. HBO is currently developing a series, set to premiere in October that, if executed with finesse, may take some superhero spotlight from the media behemoth that is Marvel. The question is: who will be watching the W...

ROTORUA: What To Do In NZ’s Geothermal Town – PEDESTRIAN.TV ROTORUA: What To Do In NZ’s Geothermal Town

There are few unwavering facts in this life: Trump is the worst, crunchy is the only type of worthy peanut butter, and Rotorua smells like a fart. But you know what? That rotten-egg stench (which is the outcome of hydrogen sulphide emissions, mind you) is so very worth it. The place is beautiful. You’ll forget it’s even there in next to no time. There’s a reason this New Zealand destination, around a six-hour drive North of Wellington and three hours south of Auckland, is such a tourism hotspot, after all. In fact, there’s far more than one reason – but keep reading to see at least six because I don’t have all day. Rotorua is famed for its geothermal activity – it’s actually the reason it smells like 700 filthy uncles got together and simultaneously let it rip – so it makes sense that there is a smorgasbord of hot springs heated naturally from the earth’s mantle. Hells Gate is the obvious option for many because it’s also got a mud pool which is 10/10 fun but Polynesian Spa definitely deserves your consideration. Not only is it conveniently located in town (Hells is a good 20 min drive from the centre, at least), but I personally found it more relaxing and serene. The choice is ...

Using Uponor ProPEX LF Brass Copper Press Adapters and the M18 ProPEX Expansion Tool from Milwaukee Tools, technicians can create a PEX-to-co...

AVZ Minerals DFS fieldwork programme gains momentum

ASX-listed AVZ Minerals is making headway with its definitive feasibility study fieldwork programme at the Roche Dure pit within the greater Manono lithium project in the Democratic Republic of Congo. Democratic Republic of Congo – The DFS field programme is gaining momentum with accelerated dewatering; engagement of geotechnical and hydrogeological consultants and studies now planned and commissioned. The pit floor drilling programme at Roche Dure is also being considered and tendered to several local DRC-based drilling companies. Tenders have also been received from three DRC based environmental consultancy groups for the environmental and social impact assessment study (ESIA) which will generate such items as the long term environmental management plan, the surface water management plan and the social development programme, that will be managed by the AVZ Foundation for the benefit of the Manono town residents. A five ton Allight Sykes CP300 high volume dewatering pump was commissioned at Roche Dure early in September 2019, with almost immediate results on reduction of the water level at Roche Dure. This pump has been combined with a pontoon based spindle pump, which can be ...
