7 Best Outdoor Christmas Lights 2019 | The Strategist

Every product is independently selected by (obsessive) editors. Things you buy through our links may earn New York a commission. The first time someone decided to hang little lights on a pine tree that was chopped down and carried inside a home was in December 1882, when Edward Johnson, vice-president of the Edison Electric Light Company, wrapped a hand-wired strand of 80 colored light bulbs around his Christmas tree. It probably looked beautiful, even if it was a terrible fire hazard. Today, Christmas lights are used by more than just one brave guy — a lot more. And we have a lot more options. LED bulbs that use less energy and are much less likely to burn out. Bulbs that are outdoor rated. Bulbs that twinkle and pulse. And, in extreme cases, bulbs that people set to music.With so many choices, it can be hard to know what the best Christmas lights are. Plus, the best lights for you may be different than the best lights for your neighbor. To help navigate the choices, we spoke to Brandon Stevens, president of the Decor Group, a Texas-based Christmas light installation company with franchises in 48 states; Josh Trees, president of the Christmas Light Installation Pros Association...

Even if you only have a small yard with just a few bushes and trees, it

Even if you only have a small yard with just a few bushes and trees, it doesn’t take long to accumulate a good bit of natural debris on your property. Since your options for getting rid of yard waste are limited, often the best solution is investing in a wood chipper. You need a machine that is large enough and powerful enough to handle the size and type of debris that you have. We like the sheer power of the YARDMAX Chipper Shredder with a Briggs & Stratton engine. This model can handle branches up to 3 inches in diameter. To learn more about this and other wood chippers, keep reading. Considerations when choosing wood chippers It’s not uncommon for people dealing with yard waste to assume they need a wood chipper, which is a powerful device with blades that can reduce large branches down to tiny piles of wood chips. However, unless you live in a wooded area, the average homeowner is dealing primarily with twigs and leaves. A shredder can be effective, but may not be quite powerful enough for every task that you must accomplish. What you really need is a chipper shredder. This machine can handle anything from branches, ranging from 1″ to 3″ in diamet...

Why shouldn’t we be using PVC yoga mats when there are so many around? They’re great

Why shouldn’t we be using PVC yoga mats when there are so many around? They’re great for grip, aren’t they? They’re affordable. And they take a really long time to wear through. So what if they’re too expensive and impractical to recycle? Or that they take hundreds of years to decompose when thrown out? Who really cares that dioxin, a highly dangerous toxic chemical, is released if they are incinerated instead? It doesn’t matter all that much – does it? If you are suspiciously eyeballing your yoga mat right now, terrified of what it might be made from, we don’t blame you. But thankfully, there are now a number of eco-friendly options to choose from. Whilst we don’t recommend you chuck out your old PVC mat to buy one, perhaps you could retire it from yoga and find another use for it – just to stop you from glaring at it as you attempt your next downward facing dog. The answer is simple: if it has been made from natural materials. The super eco-friendly ones use materials that are sustainably sourced, and for full marks, the mats should really come in recyclable packaging as well. “We should be trying, in every area of our lives, to think about our impact on the planet,” says yoga...

How to get an ‘ab crack’ like Emily Ratajkowski

Usually on Academy Awards night, it’s the outfits that get the most attention, and while there were some stunning looks on show at the Vanity Fair Oscars party, it was what Emily Ratajkowski wasn’t wearing, that got people talking. The model chose a white bandeau crop top and low-slung maxi skirt, the minimalist matching set showcasing her incredibly toned stomach and famous ‘ab crack’.Emily Ratajkowski attending the Vanity Fair Oscar Party (Ian West/PA) Some people thought the tube top was a bit too revealing for such a glitzy A-list event, but showbiz presenter Ksenija Lukich summed up our thoughts when she commented on Instagram: “If I had abs like that, I’d probs wear that too.” If we started doing 1,000 sit-ups a day, would we all end with a deep ab crack running down the middle of our torso? Or is the 28-year-old’s body the result of genetics, rather than gym visits? “Everyone has abs under there somewhere – they just need to be revealed,”  says Adam Pinder, head trainer at F45 Peckham Rye. “Emily is blessed with some pretty fantastic genes and a low body fat percentage, combine that with a decent work ethic and you’ve got the recipe for some well-defined abs.” “It’s true...

High-speed dividers take pressure off operators | 2019-09-30

As production lines in commercial bakeries fly faster, product quality can’t suffer as throughput increases. At the divider, it’s dependent on accurate dough weights and that the dough’s cell structure isn’t harmed — or damage is minimized — as it is cut. Balancing these needs against high-volume production has become a responsibility of equipment and software. “It’s our opinion that it is not the operator who should take care of managing high speed with accuracy,” said Richard Breeswine, president and CEO, Koenig Bakery Systems. “The equipment available nowadays is capable of fulfilling these requirements. The operators should be trained well to know where to adjust certain parameters to achieve high weight accuracy, but basically, this is not something a bakery should be worried about. This is the equipment manufacturer’s job.” Creating an accurate, quality dough piece at the divider while moving at high speeds relies on many features coming together at once: consistent dough delivered to the divider, automatic adjustments, and cutting mechanisms that are fast, accurate and gentle when necessary. Much of the magic of dividing accurately at high speeds exists within the divider...
