Art and photos have the power to transform your walls from everyday to extraordinary, giving them

Art and photos have the power to transform your walls from everyday to extraordinary, giving them character and a point of view. But, often, hanging these treasures can be a matter of finding the right way to protect and perfect them. Whether you have pictures and prints that need framing or are looking for a collection of pre-framed art, we found an inspiring selection of both to spark your creativity. Crafted from brushed stainless steel, this Manhattan Frame Set in Stainless Steel from Room and Board comes with four large-scale hand-welded frames in two different sizes. The graphic nature of the frames creates a modernist vibe for photos or artwork. Hang them all together for a look that feels instantly curated. One of the best ways to show off a prized print, photo or drawing is in a floating acrylic frame such as the Wexel Art 21×27-Inch Popster Plus Magnetic Single Panel Framing Grade Acrylic Floating Frame. The simple system uses four magnets to hold your work in place—and is easy enough to let you switch it out any time if you want. Use just one frame for a statement piece or hang various sizes to create an assorted display. The Wexel Art 21×27-Inch Popster Plu...

Electricity is a mystery to most of us. But even if you don’t know AC from

Electricity is a mystery to most of us. But even if you don’t know AC from DC or volts from watts, if you’ve traveled outside the United States, you are aware that plugs and outlets are different in other countries. In fact, there are about 15 types of electrical outlets in use throughout the world. When you want to plug in one of your devices abroad, you’ll need an adapter, which serves as a sort of “go-between” as it plugs the appropriate prong style into the socket and your cord plugs into the external side of the adapter. And here’s where it gets a bit more complicated. In many countries — most in fact, except for the U.S. and Canada — the electrical voltage is 220/240V. Our American devices are designed for 110/120V which is not compatible, even when correctly plugged in through an adapter. You know this first-hand if you’ve ever fried a hair dryer or curling iron while traveling. This is where the converter comes in. A travel power converter converts or “steps down” the electrical voltage from the outlet to 110/120V so that American devices can be used safely. One more thing: many devices are now made “dual voltage,” enabling them to be used with both 110/120V and 220/240V...

Gunnersen’s high performance wood based Tricoya Extreme MDF panels

The Tricoya Extreme MDF from Gunnersen is a new range of high performance wood based panel products delivering excellent durability and dimensional stability in extremely challenging environments. Suitable for exterior and interior applications, especially in wet and high moisture conditions, Tricoya ExDF uses proprietary acetylated wood technology and a modified fibreboard manufacturing process to create a robust and long-lasting wood panel product. Tricoya ExDF challenges the most fundamental reason for wood swelling – water absorption onto hygroscopic wood fibres due to the presence of hydroxyl groups. The hydroxyl groups or water loving sites can bind or release water molecules causing wood to swell or shrink. Tested in Australia for fungal decay and termite performance in comparison to durability class 1 timber in field trials at Humpty Doo, NT and the AFRC Lab, Melbourne, Tricoya ExDF’s performance is shown to significantly exceed durability class 1 timber such as Spotted Gum. Tricoya ExDF panels are ideal for diverse applications such as façade cladding/siding; fascia/soffit panels; window and door components; door skins; wet interiors, including wall linings in sw...

How to use the Shop feature on Instagram to buy products

If you are a frequent Instagram user, chances are you may have noticed some posts in your feed with a small shopping bag icon, tucked in the lower left-hand corner.  This is Instagram’s Shop feature, which includes products offered by hundreds of brands and retailers across the world — and it’s a wise investment from the social media platform.   Analysts told Business Insider that Instagram’s move to shopping will be so successful that it will generate $10 billion in revenue by 2021. Using the Shop feature is easy, too. Any post with a shopping bag icon has a product or products linked to it — just tap on the product name, and you’re taken to the description page where you can save it for later, or buy it now.  Some products are available to purchase without even leaving the app, while others take you to the retailer’s website to finalize the transaction.  Some retailers partner with Instagram to provide a check-out process within the app. Most of those retailers are featured on Instagram’s @shop account.  Instagram’s @shop account features many retailers that have items available for purchase on the app. Meira Gebel/Business Insider 2....

Along with its motorsport history and fast road cars, Jaguar has always been known for its

Along with its motorsport history and fast road cars, Jaguar has always been known for its sexy and groundbreaking designs, such as the I-Pace and F-Type. Needless to say, the UK automaker, which has fallen on some hard financial times lately, has never been too keen to reveal its design secrets. Until now, that is. Jaguar has just announced that it has not only opened a new and larger design studio in Gaydon, England next to that of its sister brand Land Rover, but also some inner workings details and photos about its award-winning design process. There are six stages to a new Jaguar’s design with both exterior and interior teams collaborating from start to finish. These stages are as follows in this order: Sketching, Clay Sculpting, Digitalization, Color and Materials, Design Technical, and Model Manufacture. The first two stages actually begin about four years the vehicle’s reveal. What’s interesting is that each full-size clay model is not 100 percent clay, but rather comprises of an aluminum chassis and foam core. There’s also 90 mm of pure clay body. The only element that is actually real, meaning production-ready, are the wheels. Each clay model i...

Whether it’s tomato soup for a quick dinner or peaches for a tasty pie, canned food

Whether it’s tomato soup for a quick dinner or peaches for a tasty pie, canned food is a staple in many people’s pantries. Canning definitely helps food last longer, but it can be a pain to get a can open. That’s why every kitchen needs a high-quality can opener. Manual can openers feature some type of blade and a handle that you turn to rotate the blade around the edge of the lid to separate it from the can. Some can openers can do even more, such as open beer and wine bottles. Our buying guide offers all the information you need to find the best can opener for your kitchen. We’ve even included some specific product recommendations, such as our top pick from OXO, which features a soft-grip knob for easy operation and built-in pliers that allow you to remove the lid without touching it. Considerations when choosing can openers You can choose from two main types of manual can openers: handheld and wall-mounted. Handheld can openers feature a blade that you position on the edge of a can. When you squeeze the opener’s handles, the blade pierces the lid. Turning the opener’s blade crank or knob then allows the blade to rotate along the edge of the...
