ACP Announces Debut Of Genesis Recycled Series Ceiling Panels

Acoustic Ceiling Products (ACP) announced today the debut of its new Genesis Recycled Series Ceiling Panels. Washable, water- and mold-proof, Genesis Recycled Ceiling Panels provide the clean, architectural styling of flat panels yet are manufactured with recycled materials. “Sustainable building products are in high demand due to issues around energy and atmosphere, materials and resources, and indoor air quality, for example,” says ACP President Rob Rebman. “Genesis Recycled panels can potentially fulfill LEED requirements by addressing these issues while satisfying consumers’ desire to be environmentally responsible.” Available in 2×2 and 2×4 sizes, the Genesis Recycled panels are 2.3 mm wide. The panels are water- and mold-resistant and come in two styles and colors. The flecked panel is made of 75% recycled material (it includes a .012 virgin vinyl skin for a consistent white appearance), while the black panel is made of 100% recycled material. The engineered, pre-stressed panels feature a room-facing profile to prevent sagging. They are easy to install and simply lay in to any drop grid system for 2×2 or 2×4 panels.

8 Finalists Announced in $1.55M Challenge for New Solutions to Detect Opioids in International Mail

Today, the White House Office of National Drug Control Policy (ONDCP), U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Science and Technology Directorate (S&T), U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP), and the U.S. Postal Inspection Service (USPIS) announced eight finalists in the first stage of the Opioid Detection Challenge, which is a $1.55 million global prize competition for rapid, nonintrusive detection tools that will help find illicit opioids in international mail. “A critical part of addressing the addiction crisis is finding new ways to stop the flow of deadly drugs coming into our country. This is exactly why we have taken a whole-of-government approach and launched this competition. The responses from innovators, universities, and technology leaders have been outstanding. We will continue to support the development of these creative solutions that have the potential to detect opioids and ultimately save lives,” ONDCP Director Jim Carroll said. “I am alarmed with dangerous illicit opioids traveling through our international mail system not only because they feed the devastating opioid epidemic in our country, but because they put our operators at risk,” Acting DHS Sec...

Lightning is some nasty stuff. Luckily, it doesn’t have a very long lifespan. [BigClive] decided to

Lightning is some nasty stuff. Luckily, it doesn’t have a very long lifespan. [BigClive] decided to tear down an 11KV lighting arrestor used in power distribution systems. The fiberglass core has silicone rubber water-shedding disks that make the unit look sort of floppy, but inside is some serious hardware. To protect the circuit, metal oxide varistors shunt high voltage from a lightning strike to ground as you’d expect. The interesting part is how the device deals with failure. It would be a disaster if the device shorted the 11KV power line to ground for any length of time due to a fault. To prevent that problem, a resistor heats up when struck by lightning and triggers an explosive charge that disconnects the ground wire and releases a flag to indicate the failure. [BigClive] triggered the charge in the video below. So if you like to see things explode in a bucket of water, you’ll enjoy the video. Amazingly, this isn’t the first lightning arrestor tear down we’ve seen (although the embedded link is dead). However, it seems most hackers don’t want to stop lightning, they just want to photograph it. The deflagrating squibs used in these can be really powerful. It’s not an expl...

Changyu’s Ningxia estate to become 100% biodynamic

YPE html PUBLIC “-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN” “http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-transitional.dtd”> Speaking to db in London this week, Changyu’s chief winemaker, Lenz Moser, said the company hopes to be certified biodynamic in three years. “My big aim for Changyu is to convert the estate to being 100% biodynamic. We’re in the early stages of conversion at the moment and want to be fully certified by a European body in three years. If we achieve this, we’ll be the first certified biodynamic wine estate in China. “I practiced biodynamics in Austria. It brings Mother Nature in sync with the vineyard and keeps the ecosystem in tact. There’s the voodoo and cow shit element, which if you believe in it then it works. “Biodynamics is all about living with the vineyard on a daily basis and taking care of the land in a much more intense way.” As for the motivation behind the move, Moser said he’s doing it for ethical reasons. “People say that being biodynamic makes the wines takes better, but I doubt it. “I’m doing it for ethical reasons the same way you might drive an electric car. If a side effect is that the wine taste...
