Europe’s first underwater restaurant offers views of the seabed

Under features a large panoramic acrylic window that allows people to watch the marine life of Norway’s southern coast(Credit: Ivar Kvall) Visitors to Norway can now dine both on and with fish in an impressive new restaurant by Snøhetta. Appropriately named Under, the building is part-sunk into the sea and is encased in a concrete shell designed to withstand the harsh conditions on the seabed of Norway’s rugged southern coast. Likened by Snøhetta to a sunken periscope, the 34 m (111 ft)-long restaurant was built atop a barge a short distance from where it now rests in what sounds like an impressive work of engineering. “Under was built on a barge as a concrete tube shell 20 m [65 ft] from the site,” explains Snøhetta. “The windows were installed prior to the submersion. During submersion, the structure floated on its own and was delicately moved to its final location by a separate crane and tugboats. Following the submersion, structural work was completed, and the building was bolted to a concrete slab anchored to the bedrock beneath the seabed. In order to ensure a proper connection to the bolts on the concrete slab, the construction team filled t...

Managing tolerances Precision sheet metal has many variables that effect tolerance, shape, size, and features. For

Managing tolerances Precision sheet metal has many variables that effect tolerance, shape, size, and features. For example, sheet thickness tolerances from a mill can vary from +/-.0035 on the most used gages, which are 14-20 gage (.074” – .036”) to +/-.0075 on the thicker gages. A common issue to watch is designs with zero clearance between parts. This can create a tolerance stack up, resulting in parts that will not fit during assembly. When assemblies are modeled, the tolerance of the parts should be accounted for in the spacing of the parts to be sure they will fit together when assembled. Tooling considerations The tooling required to make a part can limit that part’s shape. Conventional press-brake tooling, for example, allows for precision straight-line bends that can be fitted to almost any length and are typically used on most fabricated sheet metal parts. Keeping designs in this shape area allows for lowest cost and fastest manufacturing times. This holds true for features like round embosses, bridge lances, countersinks, extrusions, or other features. These can be typically done in a punch press and every effort should be made to stay with standard sizes when possible...

Dainese Torque D1 Out Air Boots Review: Motorcycle Boots

The Dainese Torque D1 Out Air motorcycle boots are designed with racing in mind, yet are fully capable of street work. As a result, they are highly protective, yet remain comfortable. The Out portion of the name refers to the boots being designed to be worn with racing leathers or riding pants tucked inside, while the Air portion refers to ventilation to make the boots comfortable on summer motorcycle rides. The rear zipper is the only closing system on the Dainese Torque D1 Out Air boot. Coupled with the rear-entry into the boot, makes it very easy to put on and take off. There is nothing to fiddle with, yet the boot feels nice and secure when on. Velcro adjusters at the top of the boot allow the top opening some leeway for those of us with bigger calves—a nice feature on an ‘out’ style boot. Redesigned flexible ankle hinges and flexible bellow joints down the front of the boot increase torsion control and yet still allow plenty of movement, so although safety is improved, I always found plenty of feel at the foot levers. Helped by the reinforced shift pad that now has an integrated flex zone, gear changes are always positive with no missed shifts or undue pressure on the lever...

Rhode Island’s ‘red strips’: Bakery pizza doesn’t come with cheese

Rhode Island’s bakery pizza is so odd that some might even argue that “red strips” don’t meet the basic definition of pizza. This conversation is moderated according to USA TODAY’s community rules. Please read the rules before joining the discussion. The scene: Great American Bites has tried many of the nation’s regional pizza specialties, from New York to New Haven style, Chicago deep dish to Detroit pan, ultra-thin cracker-crust St. Louis pizza to crispy Neapolitan classics. But perhaps the most unusual – and least known – major style is exclusive to Rhode Island. While it is virtually impossible to find outside the Ocean State, “bakery pizza” is ubiquitous within its borders.  As the name suggests, this style of pizza is found not in pizzerias but in bakeries, including the bakery section of just about every supermarket in the state. But it traditionally comes from small Italian bakeries, which also sell a stunning variety of cakes, cookies, breads and often calzones or other stuffed dough products in the pizza family. Some even sell more traditional pizza, too. But bakery pizza is the constant, and while every place does it slightly diffe...

Conditions in Palo Alto area hills are ripe for wildfire | News

Palo Alto and the Bay Area are at great risk for a large fire similar to the Camp Fire in Butte County, a California Department of Forestry and Fire Protection (Cal Fire) spokesman said. The Bay Area is currently vulnerable to a possible fire that could spread into residential areas because of low humidity, dry vegetation and light winds, Cal Fire spokesman Jim Crawford said. “We’ve had some pretty extreme conditions in the last month. It’s never really changed,” he said, noting the sustained, offshore winds that bring drier air. The relative humidity in the Los Altos/Palo Alto mountainous areas has recently been as low as 16 percent and as high as 42 percent, depending on the time of day, according to National Weather Service National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) data. But the historical November average humidity is about 68 percent. Even more concerning, the vegetation or “fuel” moisture in the past week was only 5-7 percent — exceedingly dry — according to NOAA. Local foothills and the Santa Cruz Mountains have a similar fuel load and topography as that near the town of Paradise. Hilly canyons there channelled winds and inc...

Lidl is selling award winning bottles of wine for just £3

News Corp is a network of leading companies in the worlds of diversified media, news, education, and information services. SHOPPERS can pick up award-winning wine for under £3 at Lidl with its deal giving customers 25 per cent off – but you have to buy six bottles. The 25 per cent off is available from today until July 10 in stores only so you’ll have to be pretty quick to take part. But bear in mind that not all of Lidl’s wine is included in the offer – and its very cheapest bottles have been excluded from the deal. That said, we’ve worked out that you can still pay under £3 a bottle if you opt for the cheapest wines in the deal – we’ve listed them in the box below. The cheapest six bottles in the 130-strong range cost between £3.58 and £4.09, which makes them between £2.69 and £3.06 once you take off 25 per cent. Of course, as you have to buy six bottles that means your total spend is between £16.14 and £18.36. There’s a pricey Comte de Senneval Champagne Brut at £11.49, while wine buffs even think the £10.99 Saint Emilion Grand Cru tastes as good as a £30 bottle. There are around 760 Lidl stores throughout the UK, and you can f...

Netflix Rival HBO Max To Launch Next Year With ‘Friends’

WarnerMedia revealed the name of its new streaming service, HBO Max, and said it will lay claim to exclusive streaming rights to the hit sitcom Friends, a blow to rival Netflix. The service, which launches commercially in the spring of 2020, will be anchored in HBO’s premium content, as the name implies. But it also will feature exclusive originals, such as a one-hour thriller series starring The Big Bang Theory’s Kaley Cuoco, and a ten-episode romantic anthology series featuring Pitch Perfect’s Anna Kendrick. Though original programming may attract subscribers, popular shows likeFriends have the enduring, comfort-food appeal of the familiar. HBO Max will be home to all 236 episodes of Friends, the long-running situation comedy about a group of friends in Manhattan that debuted in 1994 but remains popular long after the last episode aired on NBC in 2004. Netflix paid a reported $100 million last December to keep Ross, Rachel and the rest of the crew on for another year. WarnerMedia didn’t reveal pricing for Max. The network’s stand-alone subscription streaming service, HBO Now, costs $15, more than Netflix’s standard plan ($12.99) and the recently announced Disney+ streaming ser...

Anarchists attack officers guarding ND event, smash cars | News

Self-styled anarchists clashed with police guarding an event in Athens where former conservative prime minister Antonis Samaras and other New Democracy lawmakers were in attendance. A group of about 15 to 20 people exited from the campus of Panteion University on Wednesday afternoon, crossed Syngrou Avenue through the underpass and hurled firecrackers against the officers stationed outside the building on the other side. According to reports, the car of MP Notis Mitarakis was among the three damaged in the attack. “That is [PM Alexis] Tsipras’ Greece for you,” Samaras said, leaving the event. In a separate incident, a group of anti-establishment protesters held a rally and shouted slogans in favor of jailed terrorist Dimitris Koufodinas outside a building where New Democracy’s MEP candidate Vangelis Meimarakis was speaking. A large police force kept protesters away from the venue where the event was being held.  Booking.com (function(d, sc, u) { var s = d.createElement(sc), p = d.getElementsByTagName(sc)[0]; s.type = ‘text/javascript’; s.async = true; s.src = u + ‘?v=’ + (+new Date()); p.parentNode.insertBefore(s,p); })(document, ‘scrip...
