Warning after Grimsby cyclist rides into barbed wire trap

A woman from Grimsby has described how she rode into barbed wire stretched across a path while out riding her bike with her husband. Fortunately, Kat Slater was not badly hurt in the incident, which happened on Sunday, but she has warned other cyclists to be vigilant, reports the Grimsby Telegraph She was on a bike ride with her husband heading towards Bradley Lakes when she rode into the wire, which was stretched between two hedges across the path. The wire was described as being around 18 inches off the ground, with its placement said to be “clearly intentional.” Ms Slater said: “I ran into barbed wire stretched knee height across the track leading to Bradley Lakes. I actually rode into it and the barbed wire wrapped around my pedals.” “I can’t say who they were trying to target or why. It may well have just been a good laugh for them,” he said. “I caught sight of it and shouted to stop. She wasn’t going very fast – it could have been a lot worse if she was. “I just saw this flash in front of my face. I didn’t realise what it was at first – I just shouted her to stop.” “The sun was shining down that way so she wouldn’t have seen it. I just so ha...

It is shockingly easy to steal a car in Oregon and not get prosecuted

PORTLAND, Ore. — According to national and local crime statistics, Portland is one of the worst cities in the country when it comes to how many cars are stolen per person in the city. Sherri Ominski has had her 1988 Toyota Camry stolen five times in and around the Portland metropolitan area over the last 20 years. “So, I bought the club, I was told it was foolproof. Well it’s not, because it was taken twice with the club,” said Ominski. It’s been stolen while she was at work, bowling with friends, in front of her condo and from a hospital parking lot. Jessie Kay Miskill was convicted of UUV, unauthorized use of a vehicle, and resisting arrest in early December. She received a probationary sentence. Miskill’s probation was revoked at the end of January after failing to report to her probation officer. “I just kind of lost it. It’s not of great value to anybody but me. I can’t afford a new car.” Senator Laurie Monnes Anderson, Deputy District Attorney Ryan Lukin and Gresham Police Captain Claudio Grandjean testified in front of the House Judiciary Committee in support of HB 2328. The law would change the wording in the law, making the excuse of “I didn’t know the car was stolen” n...

Here Are The Cheapest Cars Sold At The 2017 Pebble Beach Auctions

Another Monterey Car Week has come and gone. Fortunes changed hands and many resplendent vehicles have found new homes with new owners. It’s a happy time for all. Last year, we did a roundup of the most expensive cars sold at the Pebble Beach Auctions. And it was kind of… meh. Like, how many people can realistically relate to spending almost $22 million on an old Jaguar? Not many. In true Jalop fashion, the follow-up post with the 10 cheapest cars sold at Pebble was way more compelling for everyone. These were the cars that were attainable—that could be debated over. So, for this year, I thought I’d just do everyone a favor and skip right on over the 10 most expensive cars sold at Pebble because nobody actually gives a fuck. (If you’re interested, the most expensive one was an Aston Martin DBR1. It went for $22.5 million. I know. Which beggar bought that?) And here they are, according to a no-frills, no-nonsense Excel spreadsheet sent along by a helpful Hagerty employee. Please note that, for whatever reason, some of the cars weren’t listed on the auction sites. It’s like they don’t care about the cheap ones or something! I was expecting some beat-to-shit BMW. But no! Thi...

bellingcat – Guide To Using Reverse Image Search For Investigations

Reverse image search is one of the most well-known and easiest digital investigative techniques, with two-click functionality of choosing “Search Google for image” in many web browsers. This method has also seen widespread use in popular culture, perhaps most notably in the MTV show Catfish, which exposes people in online relationships who use stolen photographs on their social media. However, if you only use Google for reverse image searching, you will be disappointed more often than not. Limiting your search process to uploading a photograph in its original form to just images.google.com may give you useful results for the most obviously stolen or popular images, but for most any sophisticated research project, you need additional sites at your disposal — along with a lot of creativity. This guide will walk through detailed strategies to use reverse image search in digital investigations, with an eye towards identifying people and locations, along with determining an image’s progeny. After detailing the core differences between the search engines, Yandex, Bing, and Google are tested on five test images showing different objects and from various regions of the world. The first ...

‘Coffee cart’ offers new way to learn at Fairmont Area | News, Sports, Jobs

FAIRMONT — Fairmont High School is in the process of creating a coffee cart that special education students will use to sell coffee to teachers and staff during the week. Kristin Tietje, a special education teacher at the high school, said they are funding the endeavor through a STEM grant. Tietje wrote the grant for $1,500. It was approved and the money was used to purchase two coffee brewers, three airpots, a cart and the coffee. She explained that in order to receive the grant, her project had to do with science, technology, engineering or math. “For my students, it has to do with math,” Tietje said. “They will be doing all of the accounting behind it. The staff will be ordering coffee through technology. They will be getting a Google form and ordering it online, which will be sent to a spreadsheet. My students will print out the spreadsheet and have all the coffee orders for the morning.” She said students will then need to calculate how much coffee to make. They will fill the airpots and collect how many creamers, sugars, flavored creamers and other special items requested by staff. Before Tietje received the grant, she had to make sure there was enough interest in offering...

Serena Williams Amazon Masks Are Surprisingly Affordable

While you’re grabbing toilet paper and paper towels from Amazon, take a look at the retailer’s beauty department. It includes some of the best brands and products around, including some stellar face masks. Hey, even Serena Williams gets her face masks on Amazon. As Allure first reported, the tennis star took to her Instagram account earlier this week to give her 11.9 million followers a peek into how she gets such great skin. Get ready to take notes. “Every night, I try to do different masks,” Williams said to the camera. “Tonight, I’m doing this chin lift ’cause I need to lift my chin.” I’ve personally used the K-beauty mask before, that’s made by a few different retailers. It’s a stretchy white fabric that tightens under your chin and slips over your ears. Who knows if it actually works (I doubt it) but it’s fun to try regardless. But that’s not all she uses. “And then I have my gold undereye masks,” she adds. If you think these are some high-end masks with triple-digit price tags, you’d be mistaken. “I get them all from Amazon,” she says. “So it’s fun. I love it.” Williams also acknowledges that the masks look a little silly but “hey, this is the price you pay when you keep a...

Introducing Canoo, No Paddles Required For This Electric Van

It seems like every time we turn around lately, another startup is hoping to break into the auto industry with an electric vehicle. Some achieve a modicum of success like Tesla and manage to hang in and grow sales, if not profits. Others – most actually – arrive with hyperbolic plans and flame out spectacularly before ever delivering a product like Faraday Future. One of the more interesting entries was actually spawned by a group of executives and engineers that fled Faraday as the apparent death spiral was picking up steam in late 2017 and makes its public debut this week as Canoo. When former BWM executives Stefan Krause and Ulrich Kranz left Faraday to form their new venture it was initially called Evelozcity, but that name was dropped a few months ago in favor of Canoo. Krause served as CEO until August of this year when he stepped down to deal with some family matters and CTO Kranz is currently running day to day operations. When Canoo’s first vehicle, itself known as Canoo comes to market in 2021, it won’t be competing directly with the likes of Tesla, or Audi or Porsche. There won’t be any Canoo dealers. In fact, you won’t even be able to buy a Canoo. Canoo w...

Heliogen’s 1000C solar-heating tech could be key to low-emission cement dezeen-logo dezeen-logo

American company Heliogen has managed to concentrate solar energy to temperatures of more than 1000 degrees Celsius – hot enough to provide a fossil-fuel-free way to make concrete. The company creates ultra-high heat using a precisely aligned array of mirrors to focus sunlight onto a single target — a technology it describes as a “multi-acre magnifying glass”. Its breakthrough means that in the future solar thermal energy could be used for industrial processes that currently require the burning of fossil fuels. Chief among these is the production of cement, which requires high temperatures to form a composite from a mix of materials such as limestone, chalk and slate that are then ground into a powder. As the key ingredient in concrete, cement is behind an estimated eight per cent of global greenhouse gas emissions, leading to calls for architects to switch to other materials. But Heliogen’s technology could create the ultra-high heat required for its production via the sun, lowering concrete’s carbon footprint. Around 50 per cent of cement’s CO2 emissions come from the chemical reaction of converting calcium carbonate into calcium hydroxide, howev...

If you have watched MythBusters, you are aware that they often crash things into each other.

If you have watched MythBusters, you are aware that they often crash things into each other. In the latest episode, the MythBusters dropped a piano onto the roof of a house. Before the drop, they stated that the piano weighed 700 pounds and would be dropped 50 feet above the roof. Right before impact, the piano would be traveling at 38 mph and have an impact force of 12,000 pounds. So, how did they get these values? Clearly they could just measure the mass and the starting height. But what about the speed and the impact force? Let me show you how you calculate these values. The great thing about this piano drop is that it’s a perfect introductory physics problem that uses both the Work-Energy Principle and the Momentum Principle. This is the simplest part of the problem. How fast was the piano right before it hit the roof? Here is a diagram. I’m going to use the work-energy principle to find the speed. Sure, you could use one of the kinematic equations but it isn’t as clear as the work-energy principle. The work-energy principle says that if you have some system, the work done on it is the change in energy of that system. If I just just use the piano as the sys...
