Wirewerks Expands NextSTEP Technology™ Fiber Management System with Scalable Base-8 Connectivity Solutions – JSA

Wirewerks announced today it has expanded its NextSTEP Technology™ Fiber Management System, a multi-award winning high-density connectivity solution for fiber management applications in data centers, MSO/Broadband networks and Enterprise LANs, with the launch of the NextSTEP™ 3-Series Modules, known as 3S Modules. The 3S Modules include the NextSTEP™ 3-Series Distribution Module and the NextSTEP™ 3-Series Loaded Patch Module.

The NextSTEP™ 3-Series Loaded Patch Module houses incoming pre-terminated cable assemblies or provides fusion splicing for up to 24 LC or 12 SC ports on the front of each...

Honey, switch to the 10-pounders,” says Kirsten Gillibrand. This directive is made in a dreary, windowless

Honey, switch to the 10-pounders,” says Kirsten Gillibrand. This directive is made in a dreary, windowless gym on the fourth floor of a Courtyard by Marriott hotel in Waterloo, Iowa. At 7:15 a.m. the Sunday before Memorial Day, press secretary Alex Phillips and I are blearily sweating through a Gillibrand-devised circuit the senator correctly predicts will leave us sore tomorrow. She’s using 25-pound barbells for the exercise that she wants me to use 10 pounds for. She’s encouraging. Nurturing. Appropriately bossy. As she corrects my foot position during triceps kickbacks, I feel the blessed relief of surrendering to competence. I’d asked to attend the workout of the senator from New York and aspiring president after seeing her do chest presses on Instagram, thinking it would work as a facile metaphor for the strength she’d need to break out in a 24-person Democratic field. I’d hoped the sight of 52-year-old Gillibrand’s now-famous biceps might reveal some larger, heretofore obscured appeal. Some reserve of magnetism, also hiding under a navy blazer. A glimpse into the reasons she’s not gaining ground as a candidate. The majority of Democratic hopefuls have yet to experience a ...

Welcome to Is This Shoe OK?, an infrequent column about shoes that may or may not

Welcome to Is This Shoe OK?, an infrequent column about shoes that may or may not be good, as determined by me—an authority, because I own shoes—and you, in the comments below. In today’s installment, we’re looking at velcro sneakers, a new trend overtaking adults, not just children who’ve yet to learn to tie their shoes. Not all trends are created equal, and not all trends are for you. It’s a lesson even the most adventurously fashionable must confront at some point in life and then again every season forevermore afterward, and it’s one I never really considered until everyone in my life started wearing heinously ugly dad sneakers. (In case you didn’t know: Demna Gvasalia, the influential Balenciaga/Vetements designer, started the trend because he hated looking at small feet. If you’ve partaken, you’ve fallen victim to a troll and as a result, elected to look like a clown. Also, I hate sneakers, so my apologies in advance for the inherent biases you’re about to devour.) Next up in the tennis shoes trend is the velcro sneaker, according to a recent article on Well and Good, part of what the writer describes as an ongoing “‘so uncool, they’re cool again’ footwear craze.” I rebuke...

Craft brewers, already feeling the hangover of a declining U.S. beer industry, are facing new troubles

Craft brewers, already feeling the hangover of a declining U.S. beer industry, are facing new troubles as their equipment gets wrapped up in Trump’s trade war. Small breweries hoping to open or expand in the next few months say they’re holding off on orders of new equipment as they wait to find out whether the administration’s latest round of proposed tariffs on $300 billion of goods — including brewery machinery — will go into effect. “We are being more cautious and taking a conservative approach,” said Dan Coronado, who’s planning to open nanobrewery Lokahi Brewing in Kailua, Hawaii, with a partner next spring. The sector may not have to wait long for clarity. President Donald Trump will sit down with Chinese President Xi Jinping on the sidelines of the Group of 20 summit in Japan on Saturday, where it’s possible they’ll hash out a deal — or at least make enough progress that the U.S. will delay the potential fourth round of tariffs. But tensions are high leading into the meeting, with Xi taking a not-so-subtle swipe at Trump’s policy slogan, “America first,” in remarks to African leaders. If the tariffs do go into effect, higher equipment costs could make it...

Veolia and Nestlé partner, Garnier makes PCR commitment

Recycling services provider and consumer goods company will explore collection opportunities and emerging technology. Also, hair care company commits to increasing postconsumer recycled content in its bottles. Nestlé and Veolia Environnement, two Europe-based companies with global presences, have announced an agreement to collaborate on recycling and waste collection and sorting with an emphasis on plastics and flexible plastic packaging. The two firms say they have identified projects that “will focus on 11 priority countries across Asia, Africa, Latin America and Europe.” The partnership will also explore technologies to establish viable models of recycling in different countries. This includes chemical recycling technologies like pyrolysis, which the companies say is capable of producing virgin quality plastic from scrap materials. “These technologies will help Nestlé to increase the recycled content of its bottled water packaging to 35 percent and its overall product packaging to 15 percent by 2025,” the two firms state in a joint news release. “Plastic waste is a challenge that requires an ecosystem of solutions all working simultaneously,” comments Magdi Batato, executive ...

A robot dog has learned to run faster with machine learning

Reinforcement learning has helped a four-legged bot move a bit like a real animal, without having to be taught how to make each step. The news: Roboticists want their creations to mimic animals because animals invariably move in the most energy-efficient way. But the eerily lifelike movement of robots like Boston Dynamics’ Spotmini is usually coded by hand. Now researchers have combined simulation with a technique called reinforcement learning to teach a dog-like robot called “ANYmal” to run faster and recover from falls. Crucially, it did so without any manual intervention.  Automatic Ball Roller Suppliers for Sale Train at super-speed: The simulation let the team run training sessions 1,000 faster than real time on more than 2,000 ANYmals simultaneously. After the simulated training was transferred to a real robot, it was able to exceed its previous top speed by 25% and flip over after falls, the EFH Zurich team explains in a new paper published in Science Robotics today. It’s still pretty limited (as you’ll see above), but it’s a step (ho ho) in the right direction. Uses: Besides keeping Jeff Bezos company? To be honest, there aren’t that many compelling practical uses at th...

Dell XPS 15 vs. XPS 15 2-in-1: Which laptop is best for you?

Like the XPS 13, Dell expanded its XPS 15 lineup to include a 2-in-1 model. It looks similar to the clamshell one, it has similar hardware inside, and it also has a gorgeous display. Prices are likewise closely matched, and you might be wondering exactly which model is best for you. Let’s break things down to help you make a final decision. The overall look and design of the clamshell XPS 15 lineup hasn’t changed a whole lot over the last few years, sticking with the carbon-fiber inside and CNC-machined aluminum outside. It’s a proven design, and as long as you’re not tired of the look, it should serve you well. The newer 2-in-1 model has taken that classic feel and added two convertible hinges to a thinner and smaller chassis, with the same silver exterior and black interior option; there’s also a brushed onyx color available for the 2-in-1. Both laptops are built extremely well and should put up with a lot of abuse. The backlit chiclet keyboard on the XPS 15 is a delight to use, and the large Precision touchpad on either laptop has plenty of room for multi-touch gestures. It should ultimately come down to a personal test of both laptops, but the X...

This IIT-Bombay alumnus is pedalling his way through the Golden Quadrilateral on his solar-powered autorickshaw

Sushil Reddy is on a journey of the Golden Quadrilateral connecting Mumbai, Delhi, Kolkata, and Chennai, on an autorickshaw, with the aim to create awareness on the importance of green energy. Earlier this year, the United Nations made a startling revelation – we have only 11 years to prevent irresistible damage from climate change. This announcement has spurred governments to take stringent action against carbon emissions and has made a few individuals take up the responsibility as well. Sushil Reddy, an alumnus of IIT-Bombay is one among them, who is currently traversing the Golden Quadrilateral, connecting Delhi, Kolkata, Chennai, and Mumbai. What’s interesting is that Sushil will cover the entire journey on a solar-powered autorickshaw to create awareness on the importance of clean energy. The 30-year-old green energy enthusiast began his journey on May 25 and aims to complete it on July 26. As of now, Sushil has crossed Delhi and competed 3,500 km. Sushil is also a Guinness World Record Holder for undertaking the longest journey on a solar-powered electric bicycle in 2016. During his tour, Sushil also spoke to citizens and explained to them how clean energy like solar...
