Who would not be tempted by the idea of owning a rare and historic Porsche, for

Who would not be tempted by the idea of owning a rare and historic Porsche, for less than $40,000 (£30,000)?  Forget ideas of buying a vintage 911 or 356 for that kind of money though. Your aspirations may need to be a little more agricultural and down to earth.   Instead, you could become the proud owner of a Porsche Diesel Junior tractor. Like the one currently advertised for sale on ClassicCars.com.  Company founder Ferdinand Porsche had experimented with the idea of an affordable tractor during the 1930s. World War II curtailed many of Ferdinand’s plans, including an early concept for a four-wheel drive tractor. After WWII, Porsche signed licensing deals with various companies to enable their tractor ideas to be produced. In 1956, Mannesmann AG bought the rights to Porsche’s tractor designs, creating the Porsche-Diesel brand.  Between 1959 and 1963, some 125,000 examples of the Porsche-Diesel tractor were made, although only around 1,000 were exported to the United States. Although a whole range of Porsche tractors were sold, the Junior model proved to be the biggest success. Farmers would need to find $1,750 to buy one new, whilst the fancy ‘Super’ would cost $3,600.  It m...

WTF IN HISTORY: ‘She Rocks the Vote’ exhibit postponed, carries multiple themes relevant to today

While ‘She Rocks the Vote’ at UNCW is postponed, folks will eventually see some relics of birth control, including old-time condoms and Lysol douches (below), serving as reminders that science, being informed and voting matter. Photos by Shannon Gentry Like nearly everything else in March, next Thursday’s “She Rocks the Vote” exhibit at UNCW’s Randall Library has been postponed. Spearheaded by Randall’s humanities librarian Lisa Coats and Jennifer Le Zotte, assistant professor of U.S. history and material culture, the curated event to help celebrate Women’s History Month will have a new date as soon as possible. “She Rocks the Vote” encompasses a history of birth control in North Carolina, and while Le Zotte says it is not specifically about political control of women, this exhibit connects political issues and women’s health. Its themes surrounding women’s history, health, voting rights, suffrage and feminism remain eerily timeless. They’re relevant to what we as a nation are experiencing right now amid an election season and public health crisis. The takeaway: to be informed, to seek information and sort through misinformation. “One direct parallel I see are in news stories ab...

Oncogenic human herpesvirus hijacks proline metabolism for tumorigenesis

Edited by Thomas Shenk, Princeton University, Princeton, NJ, and approved March 2, 2020 (received for review October 24, 2019) While understanding metabolic change of tumor cells is crucial to improve cancer therapy, current 2D cell culture condition may not fully recapitulate in vivo metabolic environment of tumors. Our metabolomics analysis demonstrates that proline metabolism is critical for the KSHV-transformed cell growth in 3D culture, not in 2D culture. Specifically, the KSHV K1 oncoprotein activates PYCR proline biosynthesis enzyme, increasing intracellular proline concentration for tumor cell growth in in vitro 3D spheroid culture and in vivo tumorigenesis. This study describes an oncogenic strategy of KSHV to enhance proline synthesis for virus-induced transformation, adding the proline metabolic pathway as a potential target for KS treatment. Three-dimensional (3D) cell culture is well documented to regain intrinsic metabolic properties and to better mimic the in vivo situation than two-dimensional (2D) cell culture. Particularly, proline metabolism is critical for tumorigenesis since pyrroline-5-carboxylate (P5C) reductase (PYCR/P5CR) is highly expressed in various t...

engineers created a huge foil blanket that protects homes from forest fires

a team of researchers at case western reserve university have found a way to protect homes from the blaze of a forest fire by wrapping them in a huge foil blanket. after a series of tests demonstrating the viability of this method, researchers hope their findings could help to prevent the damage caused by natural disasters such as wildfires across california. ‘the whole-house fire blanket is a viable method of protection against fires at the wildland-urban interface,’ says lead study author fumiaki takahashi, a professor at case western reserve university, cleveland, ohio, USA, who teamed up with the NASA glenn research center, US forest service, new jersey forest fire service, and cuyahoga community college for this study. takahashi was approached by people living and working in fire-risk areas who wanted to know if viable products existed commercially. this prompted his research and an initial investigation, which revealed that whole-structure fire blankets were already available. ‘I thought about a means to reduce wildland fire damage and found a US patent ‘conflagration-retardative curtain’ i.e., a fire blanket, issued during world war two,’ he says. ‘in addition, the US for...

As concern about plastic waste grows, the search for sustainable packaging has gone mainstream | National and International

Revival Food Hall sells Open Water exclusively as its packaged water. The water is packaged in aluminum bottles instead of plastic. CHICAGO — Nicole Doucet and Jess Page were met with skepticism when they first tried to persuade retailers to sell their brand of bottled water. Consumers, the young entrepreneurs were told during those early sales calls five years ago, would not pay more for water packaged in aluminum containers instead of plastic. It turns out their Chicago-based startup, Open Water, was just a bit early to the party. Food and beverage companies that cater to on-the-go consumers are rethinking their packaging amid growing concern about single-use plastics clogging up swaths of ocean and killing sea life, with the likes of Coca-Cola and PepsiCo launching aluminum bottled water as part of commitments to cut down on plastic usage and waste. “It has gone very mainstream,” said Doucet, CEO of Open Water, which counts Hyatt hotels, salad chain Sweetgreen and Second City as customers. Plastic, most of which is made from oil and natural gas, has raised particular environmental ire because half of the plastic produced globally is designed to be used just once, resulting in...

If you came here from an internet search because your battery just blew up and you

If you came here from an internet search because your battery just blew up and you don’t know how to put out the fire, then use a regular fire extinguisher if it’s plugged in to an outlet, or a fire extinguisher or water if it is not plugged in. Get out if there is a lot of smoke. For everyone else, keep reading. I recently developed a product that used three 18650 cells. This battery pack had its own overvoltage, undervoltage, and overcurrent protection circuitry. On top of that my design incorporated a PTC fuse, and on top of that I had a current sensing circuit monitored by the microcontroller that controlled the board. When it comes to Li-Ion batteries, you don’t want to mess around. They pack a lot of energy, and if something goes wrong, they can experience thermal runaway, which is another word for blowing up and spreading fire and toxic gasses all over. So how do you take care of them, and what do you do when things go poorly? This video happened 2019/10/20 in Shantou, China, and shows a charging electric scooter experiencing some rapid unscheduled disassembly. Play with sound, but maybe turned down a bit. Notice also the fire extinguisher in the bottom right, as if this ...

Electric Vehicle Total Cost Of Ownership Calculator

We’re quite fond of running and publishing total cost of ownership forecasts here, whether comparing the Tesla Model 3 with the BMW 3 Series, comparing the Tesla Model Y with the Mercedes-AMG GLE 63 S, or comparing the Volkswagen ID.3 with the Volkswagen Golf. California utility PG&E Corporation has also joined the cost of ownership fun. It has a cost of ownership calculation tool for 52 electric vehicles on the market in California (plug-in hybrids as well as fully electric vehicles). Clicking for details on what goes into the calculations, you get the following table, indicating that the 5 year cost of ownership comparison takes into account estimates for upfront price, electricity costs over time for the Model 3, gasoline costs over time for the Golf R, maintenance costs, and insurance costs: I presume the calculator uses California medians for miles driven, electricity costs, gasoline costs, and perhaps insurance costs. Estimating maintenance costs is more of an art at this point, and how they determine insurance cost estimates is unclear to me, as that’s always been a tricky business. Going a bit further, you can select your preferred EV here, can sort by EV type (full ...

The Department of Defense significantly expands drop test definitions and procedures in the new MIL-STD-810H Test

The Department of Defense significantly expands drop test definitions and procedures in the new MIL-STD-810H Test Method Standard You wouldn’t know it from looking at almost all of the published ruggedness testing results, but the good old DOD MIL-STD-810G was replaced by the MIL-STD-810H in January 2019. And if you thought the old MIL-STD-810G was massive in size, the new one is bigger yet. While the old MIL-STD-810G document was 804 pages, the new one has 1,089. That’s 285 extra pages of testing procedures. The new standard brings quite a few changes in ruggedness testing. In this article I’ll take a first look at one of the marquee tests as far as rugged mobile computing equipment goes, the transit drop test. It was described in Method 516.6 Procedure IV in the old MIL-STD-810G, and now it is under Method 516.8 Procedure IV in the new MIL-STD-810H. The drop section has grown from two to six pages, and there are some interesting changes. The basic approach to drop testing remains the same. Items must still be tested in the same configuration that is actually “used in transportation, handling, or a combat situation.” What has changed is how testing is done. Pr...

NASA’s Plans to Explore the Moon and Beyond Aided by Space Station Research

Credit: NASA As part of the Artemis lunar exploration program, NASA plans to return astronauts to the Moon and use that experience to inform future human exploration of Mars. To safely and comfortably explore for days at a time on the surface of these celestial bodies, astronauts need suitable equipment and places to live. Almost 20 years of human habitation aboard the International Space Station and a growing body of research conducted there are contributing important insights into how to meet these needs for future lunar explorers. As a first step toward sustained human presence on the Moon, NASA is building an outpost in lunar orbit, known as Gateway. This spaceship will provide access to more of the lunar surface than ever before and serve as home base for astronaut expeditions on the Moon. Its capabilities for science, more autonomous exploration, and commercial and international partnerships all are influenced by and build on the experiences o...
