High-tech additive manufacturing, or 3D printing, takes the guesswork out of making a hollow metal object, while tweaking and fine-tuning the properties of the material composing it. These components were fabricated at the Signma Complex at Los Alamos National Laboratory. (Courtesy of LANL) Making a vessel by building it up from a base material is at least as old as the art of pottery. To create a vase, a potter starts by mixing clay with sand, other minerals – perhaps mica for a glittery shine – and water. Then the clay is kneaded to the desired consistency and coiled into thick ropes of moist clay that lie on top of each other to form the desired shape. Th...

First Look: A Luxury All-Inclusive Resort Is Opening In Florida

After a devastating fire tore its way through the Bungalows Key Largo last May, the luxury, adults-only hotel will officially reopen its doors just in time for the holidays. The only all-inclusive resort in the Florida Keys, the hotel is back and better than ever, featuring 135 private bungalows each of which are outfitted with its own bougainvillea-laden veranda complete with oversized alfresco soaking tub and garden shower. Located on the Northernmost part of the Florida Keys just 63 miles South of Miami, the luxe waterfront resort spans across 12-acres and is now accepting reservations for December 19 onward. “Bungalows Key Largo opened to a bevy of buzz and incredible interest from guests throughout the U.S. and beyond,” owner Jerry Johnson said in a statement. “We have worked tirelessly to restore the resort to its original grandeur, and we are confident the finished product is worthy of the hotel’s opening fanfare.

The immediate thought when someone sees a hammock is one of relaxation. Rather than just thinking

The immediate thought when someone sees a hammock is one of relaxation. Rather than just thinking about it, start feeling stress-free when you purchase a brand new hammock for your backyard or your next camping trip. Lounging in a hammock lets you enjoy the sights and sounds of nature while being immersed in the experience. Hammocks can even be made to fit multiple people, so you can share a special moment with a close one or family member. Of course, it also lets you spread out a bit in a large canvas by yourself if you want. Feel the stress release and begin dozing off, thanks to any of these three multi-person hammocks. A Brazilian hammock has gathered ends on each side so you can sleep diagonally across the cloth canvas. The Hammock Sky Brazilian Double Hammock is a two person bed made of soft woven cotton. It has comfortable, long-lasting thread that provides a soft and delicate touch. From loop to loop, the hammock is 12 feet long while the resting area is 98″ x 59″. It may take a week or two for it to stretch out, but it will get there. It comes with a free bag to transport it, so you can bring it with you and use it on your next trip. It requires two hooks to hang from. ...

SHEEP farmers have welcomed the news that British lamb was on the menu at last night’s

SHEEP farmers have welcomed the news that British lamb was on the menu at last night’s State Banquet at which Her Majesty the Queen hosted US President Donald Trump. Some guests on the night circulated the event’s menu on social media, revealing that the main course was a new season Saddle of Windsor lamb with herb stuffing – although it was listed in traditional menu French as ‘Selle d’Agneau de Windsor Farcie Marigny’. National Sheep Association chief executive Phil Stocker suggested that this might be a good starting point to opening the US market to UK lamb exports. “As Her Majesty stated in her address yesterday, Britain and the United States have long been close trading partners, and the largest investors in each others economy. NSA was delighted to hear British lamb was served to the President in amongst these discussions,” said Mr Stocker. “With much uncertainty surrounding future markets for British lamb, it is reassuring to see the Palace waving the flag for British lamb and presenting this quality British product to President Trump. NSA is pushing for an increased number of export destinations for British sheepmeat and giving ...

Don’t Travel Stark-Naked: Make a Jewelry Statement | Buzz travel

If your ears, neck, wrists, and fingers are bare, you must have missed the memo, “Jewelry is an important part of being a c-suite executive.” Whether traveling to the office on Long Island or to Milan for a meeting, jewelry immediately signals corporate status. Annual jewelry global sales are healthy, growing at 5-6 percent per year. In 2018, the global luxury jewelry market amounted to approximately US$20 billion (18 billion Euros) and the largest markets for jewelry and watches include the USA, Germany, and France. The success of the industry can be attributed to the agility of designers, manufacturers, distributors, online and brick/mortar retailers who have become agile competitors in a very crowded industry. In the 1980s, apparel brands were important (i.e., Marks & Spencer/UK), while global market leaders today are Zara, H&M and Hugo Boss. Jewelry appears to be following a similar path, although, at the moment, the jewelry industry is local. The ten largest jewelry groups control only 12 percent of the worldwide market and only 2 – Cartier and Tiffany & Co., are in Interbrand’s ranking of the top 100 global brands. The strong national brands include Christ (Ger...

The biggest fashion trend in recent years is “fast fashion”—the mass production of trendy, inexpensive clothing

The biggest fashion trend in recent years is “fast fashion”—the mass production of trendy, inexpensive clothing with lightning-quick turnaround. This is a hugely wasteful global, environmental and human rights disaster, according to bestselling journalist Dana Thomas in her new book Fashionopolis. Making the industry’s 80 billion garments per year requires huge amounts of water and toxic chemicals. It employs every sixth person on Earth—most in dangerous conditions for very little money. Fast fashion also produces mountains of clothes that go unsold or are discarded and end up in garbage dumps and landfills. There is no single solution for these problems of ecological damage, exploitation and waste, but there is hope for the future. Consumers, retailers and innovators are pursuing a variety of options for sustainability, such as buying secondhand clothes; renting outfits; recycling clothes into new, reusable fibers; 3D printing clothes on demand; biofabrication; reshoring; and using organic and natural fibers. And just buying less. Perhaps the worst offenders in terms of environmental and human damage are blue jeans. In this excerpt from Fashionopolis, Tho...
