VANCOUVER and HOBRO, Denmark, Oct. 2, 2019 /PRNewswire/ – Ballard Power Systems (NASDAQ: BLDP; TSX: BLDP) today announced receipt of a purchase order for 3 of its FCveloCity® 100 kilowatt (kW) fuel cell modules from Berlin-based BEHALA (www.behala.de), a port and logistics specialist, to power the world’s first zero-emission push boat. The boat, to be named Elektra, will be used primarily to transport goods between Berlin and Hamburg as well as on inner-city transport routes in Berlin.

Propulsion power for the Elektra will be provided by the Ballard fuel cell modules along with modular batteries (2.507 kWh capacity).

While the Elektra is under construct...

5 Stylish Swedish Cleaning Tools You Should Be Using | Real Simple

Over the past few years, Scandinavian-inspired everything has been having a moment—in home decor, in fashion, and yes, even in cleaning products. It’s perhaps no surprise that minimalist Scandi style goes hand in hand with a clean, decluttered space, and so even Swedish cleaning tools are functional, attractive objects worthy of display. Rather than cheap plastic tools that get hidden in cabinets and stashed inside closets, invest in these durable and (dare we say) stylish cleaning essentials that you can leave out in the open. In fact, you may even want to show these beauties off.  A cross between a sponge, a dishcloth, and a paper towel, these reusable Swedish dishcloths are ultra-absorbent, will mop up every spill in your kitchen, and can be cleaned in the dishwasher. Plus, they’re biodegradable.  You can’t talk about Swedish cleaning tools without mention of Iris Hantverk, a maker of luxury home goods that are conceptualized by top designers and assembled by craftspeople who are visually impaired. Crafted using techniques that date back to the 19th century, these Swedish cleaning tools stand the test of time.  One Iris Hantverk classic: this tiny (it’...

The iPhone 11 is one of the hottest gadgets this holiday season, but Apple isn’t the place to go shopping for iPhone deals. The iPhone 11 might be more affordable than we imagined, starting at $699, but the Pro models are priced much higher, starting at $999 (11 Pro), and $1,099 (11 Pro Max). Thankfully, there are ways to score a cheaper iPhone 11 such as installment plans, upgrade programs, and trade-ins. If that’s how you were planning to buy an iPhone 11 this year, then you absolutely should check out the following three iPhone 11 Black Friday deals. And the best part about it is that you don’t have to wait until November 29th to get them, as Best Buy, Sam’s Club, and Target have early sales for Apple’s newest iPhones. Best Buy’s iPhone 11 deal is included in the company’s early Black Friday sale event, and it’s available right now.

You can save up to $500 on the three phones. The deal is valid through November 10th and requires an in-store visit. It will then return on Black Friday. Sam’s Club is hosting a special one...

Who Deserves the Blame for the Arizona Cardinals Weaknesses?

The Arizona Cardinals have made vast improvements since last year’s 3-13 showing, but no 3-5-1 team is devoid of critics. Fans and analysts can be notoriously harsh when things aren’t going perfectly. So, I thought it would be good to go through the most heavily criticized Arizona Cardinals in 2019 and say my peace as to whether those criticisms are valid or not. Johnson has been a confusing player to watch this year. In the receiving game he has been as electric as ever, showcasing some of the trademark highlights that made him an All-Pro in 2016. But he has also struggled to have the impact in the running game that led to his 1239 rushing yards and 16 rushing touchdowns in 2016. To top that off, the effectiveness of Chase Edmonds and Kenyan Drake make it even more difficult to absolve him of his struggles this year.  Edmonds ran all over the Giants for 126 yards and 3 TDs, and Kenyan Drake went for 110 rushing yards on an eye-popping 7.3 YPC against the vaunted 49ers defense. David Johnson has failed to rush for 100 yards in a game all year, and even his most adamant supporters are running out of excuses for the lovable running back. All of this being said, Johnson is an uber-...

While I love reviewing new floorstanding super towers from RBH Sound, I also recognize in-walls represent

While I love reviewing new floorstanding super towers from RBH Sound, I also recognize in-walls represent a big chunk of their Custom Integrator business. Let’s face it, not everybody has the space to accommodate a pair of Signature reference towers in their listening space or those that do simply can’t replicate the same speaker setup as a surround channel. But, what if there was a way to get Signature level of performance without having the big hulking box? RBH Sound has an entire line of Signature in-wall speakers that are up to the task, such as their SI-6100 and SI-663 LCR speakers. But with the advent of immersive audio, it was time for them to introduce an in-ceiling speaker at the quality level of the rest of their Signature in-wall line. The SI-615 in-ceiling speakers feature a 6-1/2” aluminum cone woofer and a ¾-inch pivoting ring-radiator tweeter.  The speaker has a great sensitivity rating of 88dB (2.83V @ 1 meter) and the 6 1/2″ driver boasts bass extension down to 50Hz (-3dB, free air).  There is a o/- switch on the tweeter mount that allows you boost the treble if desired. RBH claims the SI-615 is primarily designed to be used for in-ceiling chan...
