Britt’s Pick: Eight Point Heart Pendant by Pamela Zamore

Medallion jewelry appears to be experiencing a surge in popularity at the moment. It’s one of those styles that is arguably a staple in many jewelry stores, so rather than having only a few on hand, you’d be smart to stock up. And that’s easy to do, with the variety that’s currently available. Oh, the options! I’ve been poring over a robust realm of medallions over the last couple of months or so—I’ve even written about a few—just in awe of how lovely they all are. With each designer’s new input, out comes a completely different style, making it difficult to choose, true, but more apt for collecting (and medallions positively thrive in groups). So when I opened up my Instagram to be greeted with the photo above (which I also included in this article from yesterday), I knew I was in trouble (or at least, my bank account is). Medallions are typically rounded—by definition, a medallion is “an oval or circular painting, panel, or design used to decorate a building or textile,” but the jewelry definition—“a piece of jewelry in the shape of a medal”—technically says nothing about its shape. Which is what makes Pamela Zamore’s version so extraordinary. The heart is a simple, rather com...

Probiotics Market Revenue Worth $3.5 Billion by 2026: Global Market Insights, Inc.

SELBYVILLE, Del., Dec. 4, 2019 /PRNewswire/ – The global Probiotics Market value is projected to surpass USD $3.5 billion by 2026, according to a new research report by Global Market Insights, Inc. Changing consumer perception towards easily digestible food and beverages and the rising awareness of the potential benefits of probiotic-enhanced supplements may boost market share. Increasing probiotics industry demand for high-quality food additives, owing to the changing perception towards overall wellness and rising disposable income, may boost market share. Probiotics-strain-enhanced additives are widely used to improve the nutritional profile of non-dairy, meat, and baked preparations, owing to their rich concentration of antioxidants and vital amino acids, which are likely to encourage market demand. Consumers are shifting towards alternate versions of their favorite snacks, which are fortified by probiotic strains, as they aid in healthy digestion, which may augment market share.   A rising prevalence of poor diets, an increasing elderly population with reduced nutritional uptake capability, and growing health awareness may promote the growth of the probiotics market fo...

Bike riders love ‘new’ – new bikes, new kit and new products. But sometimes we find

Bike riders love ‘new’ – new bikes, new kit and new products. But sometimes we find a product that we like, that works for us, and we don’t really want to change things up, especially when it comes to personal aspects such as hydration.Asked to review another new hydration product not so long after I spent a month drinking a brand that I liked enough to take it to France on a recent trip for Bicycling Australia, I wondered…really? Can there be anything better than this? What could be different about PREPD? Then I spent some time chatting with Nathan Hocking and his team and learnt a thing or two about this new product. Namely, it isn’t a hydration drink, but actually a hydration enhancer. So that idea is very new. It meant I didn’t have to quit drinking the product I had decided was ‘my’ hydration drink. I could still have it, but add PREPD to my before and after exercise regime.The theory was that PREPD, which tastes like a very nice fruit smoothie (the mango and passionfruit Prime is taken six to 12 hours before training or racing while the equally as flavoursome strawberry and kiwi Recover is taken straight afterwards) works with other forms of hydration in my body (including...

Liverpool Bolster Their Defensive Ranks Ahead of January Fixtures – The Liverpool Offside clock menu more-arrow no yes Horizontal – White Follow The Liverpool Offside on Twitter Follow The Liverpool Offside on Facebook Search Horizontal – White Horizontal

Jürgen Klopp has few options in the centre of defense since losing both Joël Matip and Dejan Lovren to injury. Joe Gomez has slotted right into excellent form next to Virgil van Dijk and Liverpool’s defense nous is actually on the rise. But beyond Gomez and Van Dijk, the manager’s centre back choices are limited. Jordan Henderson completed a successful 90 minutes partnering Gomez in the Club World Cup semi-final match with Monterrey. Van Dijk was out ill. It was a commendable performance by the captain, but Hendo’s powers are best used further up the pitch. With the January transfer opening soon, Klopp has an opportunity to reinforce his pool of centre halves but the club aren’t likely to bring in any big-name defender as a stopgap. Phillips, who signed for Liverpool in 2016 but has yet to make his senior debut, has been on loan to German club Stuttgart this season, playing in the 2. Bundesliga. The 22-year-old defender has played 11 times for Die Roten and has surely been maturing with more playing time in a competitive league. But the situation with Liverpool’s defensive depth has forced Phillips’ recall back to Melwood. It’s unknown if Henderson’s days as defensive emergency...

Police: 4 kids hospitalized after crash that killed 4 others

DAYTON, Ohio (AP) — Four children are hospitalized after a speeding car went off a road and hit a tree in a fiery crash that killed two other children and two adults, police said Thursday. Dayton police Lt. James Mullins said all eight people were packed into the Dodge Avenger that crashed late Wednesday morning in the southwest Ohio city, apparently splitting the car into two parts. Crash reconstruction detectives estimate the vehicle was traveling at least twice the 35-mph speed limit, but why is unclear. “You go drive that fast in a 35 mph zone, you forget about the things on the side of the road like trees and RTA poles that are not very forgiving when you crash into them,” Mullins said. Police said they believe everyone in the car was related, but they were still working to confirm exactly how. Mullins identified the four people killed as Renee Jones-Blevins, 49, who was driving the car; and passengers Quaishia Jones, 28; Tae’Kwaun Jones, 10; and Mae’lah Jones, 5. The surviving children are ages 12, 5, 2 and 1, police said. Police provided no further details about the hospitalized children or their conditions.

The Open19 system provides a means of retrofitting existing 19-inch rack infrastructure with gear that supports

The Open19 system provides a means of retrofitting existing 19-inch rack infrastructure with gear that supports rapid server installation and replacement with little — if any — separate power and network cabling requirements. In addition to simplifying data center assembly, the Open19 project’s goal is to make it easier for companies to build edge infrastructure with open source hardware. An Open19 rack is comprised of three primary components: a brick cage, a power shelf and a network switch. The brick cage is little more than a sheet metal structure with pre-defined openings for an array of bricks, as well as pre-arranged locations for power and network cabling. There are currently two cage heights: 12 RU or 21-in high and 8 RU or 14-in high. All cages are the same width and mount into existing 19-inch racks. This way, each brick can easily slide into a corresponding cage opening and match with a power or data cable  without needing to separately install cabling. There are four brick styles in the Open19 standard. Admins can convert rack cages to accommodate a variety of bricks. A typical brick server is a 1U half-width enclosure that supports up to 400 watts...

CBD Education: Your Ultimate Guide to Enjoying the Craze Responsibly

The Annual CBD sales in the U.S. are expected to reach $1.8 billion by 2022. CBD use has been on the rise over the last few years. The ongoing legalization of cannabis products in various states has boosted the CBD trade into a consumer-based industry. CDB is a trendy buzzword in the wellnesses market. Several consumer products and services now have a CBD-infused alternative from candies and coffee to beauty spas. It seems like everyone wants to get their hands on some CBD. Despite the deep infiltration of CBD products, there is still a lot that people don’t know about CBD. Sellers advertise many different things about their products that end up confusing users even more. Since most CBD products are relatively new to the market, lack of information deters many potential users. There is a lacking in reliable CBD education. People need to know about the product; how to use it and the results to expect. In this article, we look at some of the essential facts of CBD and CBD uses that baffle many consumers, especially new users. CBD is short for cannabidiol, a naturally occurring chemical extracted from the cannabis plant.  The cannabis plant is mainly made up of two active compounds...

A Kickstarter has been launches for SafFire, a hybrid SLA 3D printer and laser engraver. Backers

A Kickstarter has been launches for SafFire, a hybrid SLA 3D printer and laser engraver. Backers can choose from several accessory combinations, depending on whether they need engraving only ($1,095) or engraving plus small ($1,390), large ($2,990), or both ($3,285) sizes of SLA 3D printing. Lasers are the secret to many forms of advanced manufacturing, such as laser cutting, engraving, and certain forms of 3D printing like Stereolithography and Selective Laser Sintering. Given the versatility of the laser, it is perhaps surprising that relatively few manufacturers have attempted to develop multipurpose machines that utilize a laser for several functions. Arthur W. Matteson, maker of the ‘SafFire’ 3D printer and laser engraver, saw an opportunity there, and his all-new galvo-based machine is currently half-way through a Kickstarter campaign which, with around two weeks left to run, could yet hit its goal of $40,000. Ever since the global success of Formlabs and its Form 1 and Form 2 Stereolithography 3D printers, it seems you just can’t make an SLA machine without giving it a translucent orange casing. We have no problem with this identifying feature, and—in fairness to the SafF...

The arrival of the 2003 Chevrolet Corvette represented the culmination of fifty years of evolution for

The arrival of the 2003 Chevrolet Corvette represented the culmination of fifty years of evolution for General Motors flagship automobile.  It had been during the spring of 1953 that the first Corvette had been unveiled at GM’s “Motorama”. Since that time, it had transformed into an entirely new vision of Corvette with each evolution.  “Few vehicles have had the staying power of Corvette” said Rick Baldick, Corvette Brand Manager. “We believe that much of that success comes from a willingness to embrace advancing technology while remaining true to Corvette’s glorious history. As we celebrate our golden anniversary in 2003, we honor our past and cast a bright eye toward the future.” Now, with fifty years behind it, Chevrolet executives were prepared to commemorate the half-century-old sports car through a series of planned events that included the introduction of a Special Edition 2003 C5 Corvette. The “50th Anniversary Special Edition” Corvette package, available only on base coupes and convertibles, consisted of a special metallic-burgundy Anniversary Red exterior with champagne colored wheels and specific “anniversary edition” badging. Complementing the exterior, a shale color...
