This new HyperJuice 100W GaN charger could be the charger of your dreams

Image: Hyper Gallium nitride chargers have been getting better fast since they first came out earlier this year — we started with 30W and 45W chargers, then small 61W bricks, then a 60W charger with two USB-C ports, and there was a small 65W charger with two USB-C ports and a USB-A port in September. But now we might have a new wall charging king, as Hyper launched a Kickstarter for the HyperJuice 100W GaN charger — which delivers the maximum amount of power that USB-C can muster under the current standard, in a package that’s about the size of a deck of cards. Here it is, demonstrating a grand total of two USB-C ports and two USB-A ports: It …

High Index Sunglasses….

I have a very high prescription. With nearly -20 diopters combined correction in each eye. My astigmatism is at least -7 in each eye now. I want to get sunglasses with my FSA money burning a hole in my pocket and me barely being able to keep my eyes open in bright summer driving conditions. Are high index sunglass lenses available and how much are they? I go to Lenscrafters as my Ophthalmologist refuses to do refraction for me now. Lenscrafers is the only ones willing to deal with my high prescription for lenses too. I know the hate for them is real, but I tried to support the local guys and my Rx baffles them to no end. I …

Myofascial Release Bodywork

A fascia is a thin, elastic band or sheet of connective tissue that wraps most structures within the human body, supporting and protecting them. It attaches, encloses, stabilizes, and separates muscles and internal organs and generally acts as a shock absorber by creating tissue spaces. It plays an important role in cellular metabolism, respiration, elimination, and fluid and lymphatic flow. Myofascial Release is a gentle bodywork that evaluates and treats the fascial connective tissue system which can become restricted by inactivity, overuse, trauma, or infection, often resulting in muscle tension and pain. Fasciae are major areas of inflammation, and dysfunction can have far-reaching effects. The Myofascial Release therapist applies gentle, sustained pressure into the direction of the restriction by following …

The Differences Between Pot and Column Distilling (Visualization)

Distillation can be complex, but its principles are easy enough to grasp. The aim of all distillation is to “increase the alcohol content of the liquid,” according to the Wine & Spirits Education Trust‘s (WSET) Level II textbook. To do so, you need a still, most of which fall into one of two categories: pot or column. Pot stills, the oldest style, are believed to create more flavorful spirits because the process reuses small, highly concentrated quantities of alcoholic liquid (called “heads” and “tails”). Column stills, also known as Coffey or continuous stills, run continuously, making them more cost-efficient. A good comparison might be cast-iron versus stainless-steel pans. One isn’t better than the other, necessarily: It depends on what you …

From the archive: Britain’s most exclusive doghouse, 1991

The Dynasty room, the Dallas suite, the Barbara Cartland room… it really was barking The Observer Magazine cover story of 27 January 1991 (‘Barking mad: Inside Britain’s Most Exclusive Doghouse’) was probably about the only time it could justify using the headline ‘Rich bitches’ inside the paper. Our roving (Rovering?) reporter, Martin Plimmer, went along to Alicia and Bill Eykyn’s Featherbed Country Club for Dogs in High Wycombe, Buckinghamshire – where pets can stay for £125 a week, or £265 in today’s money (or to put it another way, four times as much as my student room cost at the time) – to find out about this piece of ‘canine heaven’.

Go neon, but go easy | Funmi Fetto

Blocks of bright colours on your lids are nostalgic of the 80s, but the look is perfect for a 2019 update Convention says if you are old enough to remember wearing a trend, you shouldn’t go near it when it comes back round again. Nonsense. It’s about a fresh execution. The 80s-inspired neon eye, as seen at Carolina Herrera, is a case in point. Sidestep nostalgia territory by doing the following: forgo a brush to keep the shape angular but imperfect (try swiping a lipstick bullet across your lids). Go minimal on skin – a light foundation and a dab of highlighter will do – define brows and apply lip balm. There’s your modern, wearable spin on an old-school trend. …

Strong winds and troubled trees | Allan Jenkins

As autumn’s blustery weather arrives it’s time to take stock of struggling trees – and plant bulbs for some early spring colour It is near winter at the summerhouse. Toadstools carpet the grass, some in clumps like fairy homes, others tall and on their own, white like ghosts. The climbing rose is still flowering, a delicate pink and strongly scented. Flocks of birds flit through the rowan, all agitated feeding. Soon they and the red berries will be gone. We have stocked up on sacks of sunflower seed for the residents. Strong winds shake the trees, swirling leaves colour the grass. Soon the oaks and beech will be stripped of leaf, our neighbours exposed. Bo, the tree surgeon, is here …
