Why livestock farming in the Westcountry makes best use of our land

Tackling climate change will mean big changes for farming. Catherine Broomfield interviewed Professor Michael Lee, of Rothamsted’s farming research centre in Devon, to find out how those changes might affect the livestock sector Whatever the eventual outcome of Brexit, the soft regulatory power of society may prove to have the greater impact on the long-term direction of UK farming than the hard regulation of State. Millennials, now joined by Greta Thunberg’s Generation Z, are acutely aware of the half burnt platform on which they stand to face an uncertain future. They are self-organising on local and global scales to demand agency over how natural resources are used to sustain our lives on earth, including what we eat, how it is produced, packaged, distributed, and at what environmental cost. They are better informed and connected than any generation before them, acquiring and sharing content in a 24/7 digital world where opinion can become global fact in less time than it takes to eat lunch, and where nuance and complexity are more hindrance than help to points of view which seek to enlighten debate. In part this may explain why those who vociferously advocate the end ...

Remote control crane operation: Heavy lifting made easy

Cranes are critical in a number of industries, including aircraft/aerospace, auto manufacturing, chemicals and minerals, pulp and paper, steel production, and utilities, as well as the grain industry, logging, rail yards, and ship loading. Traditionally, industrial cranes have been operated by human operators sitting in cabs in the cranes. In such instances, the operator’s actions are guided by the hand signals of a person outside of the crane. “In the past, cranes were operated by the cab operators,” says Brad Robinson, president of Robinson Engineering, which has been offering remote control technologies since 1962. “The guy on the ground was hooking the chains, doing the loading, and having to wave his hands to direct the operator where to move the crane.” In other cases, rather than have an operator sitting in a cab, a person outside of the crane would operate the unit, using pendant pushbutton stations suspended from the crane. In recent decades, technology has advanced to the point where cranes can be operated by remote control. While this technology has been around since the 1960s, it has continued to improve over the years, with newer system...

Apple Announces Support for NFC Tags That Trigger Apple Pay

Apple announced support for NFC stickers/tags that trigger Apple Pay for payment without having an app installed. Imagine tapping your phone on a scooter or a parking-meter and paying for it without signing up or downloading an app first. #ApplePay https://t.co/owgOsH3N7L pic.twitter.com/jpxUf7H6v6 why not scan QR codes, like wechat and other Chinese payment solutions have been offering for years? Seems like the same functionality. That would be cross platform as well (and I’ve just answered my own question lol) How about NFC pet chips so that when you find a stray (or someone finds your lost fur baby), a phone’s wave can provide an ID. Apple’s Beats brand in April unveiled the Powerbeats Pro, a redesigned wire-free version of its popular fitness-oriented Powerbeats earbuds.

Please join the community of Bridge readers supporting our thorough, fact-based news. Pipeline excavation work in Flint. Questions are swirling about Flint’s recent changes to its effort to replace all of its lead and galvanized steel pipelines that may have been damaged during the city’s water crisis. (Photo courtesy of FAST Start Pipe Replacement Program) Flint launched an ambitious project to restore residents’ faith in their water in February 2016, hiring contractors to replace every lead and galvanized steel water service line beneath the sprawling city. It was a big, expensive effort following the infamous contamination of the city’s water supply in 2014. The project, which relies on $167 million from state and federal sources, is being closely watched by municipal leaders throughout Michigan who also must replace aging infrastructure. Nearly three years later, Flint has swapped out more than 7,600 lead pipelines for sa...
