The Little Things I Didn’t Know About Small DC Motors

We’ve all taken apart a small toy and pulled out one of those little can motors. “With this! I can do anything!” we proclaim as we hold it aloft. Ten minutes later, after we’ve made it spin a few times, it goes into the drawer never to be seen again. It always seems like they are in everything but getting them to function usefully in a project is a fool’s errand. What the heck are they for? Where do people learn the black magic needed to make them function? It’s easy enough to pull out the specification sheet for them. Most of them are made by or are made to imitate motors from the Mabuchi Motor Corporation of Japan. That company alone is responsible for over 1.5 billion tiny motors a year. In the specs, you’ll find things like running speed, voltage, stall current, and stall torque. But they offer anything but a convincing application guide, or a basic set of assumptions an engineer should make before using one. This is by no means a complete list, and a skip over the electrics nearly completely as that aspect of DC motors in unreasonably well documented. The first thing to note is that they really aren’t meant to drive anything directly. They are meant to be isolated from the ...

Before CAA came in, 3 decisions had set the background

The Citizenship Amendment Bill (CAB) had originally been drafted by the Narendra Modi government in its previous term in 2016. The Lok Sabha passed the Citizenship Amendment Bill in January 2019 but with the end of its tenure in May, the legislation lapsed. The new CAB was passed by both houses of Parliament in December. The Citizenship Amendment Act (CAA) amended the Citizenship Act of 1955 to make it easier for illegal immigrants belonging to Hindu, Sikh, Jain, Buddhist, Parsi and Christian communities from Bangladesh, Pakistan and Afghanistan to acquire Indian citizenship if they left their parent countries to escape religious persecution. The CAA has led to protests at several places across the country with more dominant display of anguish in states ruled by the BJP. But before the CAA became a reality on December 12, there had been at three decisions that set the background for the new law and paved the way for it. In September 2017, the Union home minister had cleared a proposal to grant citizenship to the Chakma and Hajong refugees in Arunachal Pradesh. Immediate push for the decision was a Supreme Court ruling. Chakma and Hajong refugees are original inhabitants of Chit...

ElecFreaks’ DIY STEM toy can also be used as a camera shutter, security camera or alarm, and music recorder. STEM toys that teach coding and programming are nothing new. Most models literally build on the imagination, providing users with blocks and other components that can be assembled freely and made alive through a variety of buttons and codes. Such toys are targeted primarily to young children. The Cubetto, for instance, teaches kids the basics of engineering way before they can learn to read. Demand for such products does not seem to be wavering, securing this sector as a mainstay in the toy industry’s future. Big-time companies like Google have also tried their hand on STEM coding toys, introducing Project Bloks early last year, and other businesses are following suit. One such company is ElecFreaks, which seeks to make coding not only easy to understand for children, but more fun and...

Michigan City’s landmark Golden Sands Motel reborn as 4411 Inn & Suites | Northwest Indiana Business Headlines

The Golden Sands Motel in Michigan City was extensively renovated and rebranded as 4411 Inn & Suites. The Golden Sands Motel in Michigan City was extensively renovated and rebranded as 4411 Inn & Suites. MICHIGAN CITY — New owners pumped $1.5 million into the landmark Golden Sands Motel, which has been rebranded as 4411 Inn & Suites. NADR Group, led by Nazar Kryvko and Andriy Mykolyshyn, extensively remodeled the vintage roadside motel at 4411 U.S. 12 in Michigan City. “It is rare to find a city that creates so many opportunities and stays true to its commitments,” Nazar said. “We would not be here if not for the city’s economic development agency and the mayor’s office desire to help local communities and businesses. We look forward to a continued relationship in future projects.” The 31-room motel is located near popular attractions like Washington Park Beach, Washington Park Zoo, Indiana Dunes National Lakeshore, Lighthouse Place Premium Outlets and Blue Chip and Four Winds casinos. “Michigan City continues to attract investors who are making huge investments to improve our community,” Mayor Ron Meer said. “My administration wor...

One can almost feel it in the bones: the excitement to come in the world of

One can almost feel it in the bones: the excitement to come in the world of payments in 2020, as innovation sparks new business models and disruption. Part of that future seems likely to involve open-source software, and that’s why PYMNTS recently caught up with Arvind Swami, director of FSI for Asia-Pacific at Red Hat. The company made news over summer when IBM closed its $34 billion acquisition of the open-source software firm. IBM had agreed to purchase the software company in October, marking the largest acquisition in the company’s history of more than 100 years, Reuters reported. Red Hat, which launched in 1993, specializes in Linux operating systems — an alternative to Microsoft’s proprietary software. As Swami told PYMNTS, open source could spark more payments innovation in the coming decade, as more players involved in payments look to affordable, interoperable and collaborative solutions that are relatively easy to scale — in this case, helped along by cloud computing technology and the work of developers to improve payments technology. “Most of the people who contribute to [open-source software] are users, and that’s the key for open source,” he said. “It’s easy to co...

Home Cooking: A trio of cozy soups to warm your heart

What’s a good Catholic girl doing making chicken soup with homemade matzo ball? Blame it on mom. I’m visiting her this week in Florida, her father was Jewish, and she has a very nasty bronchitis. So in an attempt to cheer her up, help her to feel better and make soups that are easy to digest as well as being full of good nutrition — and nostalgia, for that matter — I’ve made a couple of soups that will bring her joy and, I pray, good health. So we’ve got chicken soup with matzo balls, a beef borscht in honor of the years that she lived in Kiev, Ukraine, and finally a fish soup that I made one snowy afternoon in Breckenridge when I wanted something cozy to enjoy by the fire. I hope you’ll enjoy each of the soups as much as mom did. And believe me, she is a tough customer to please at the age of 92. She’s lived around the world, and she knows what she likes. Put everything into a large stock pot and bring to a boil and then allow to simmer for 30-45 minutes until the chicken meat is cooked. Remove the chicken and let it cool for 10-15 minutes, then remove the meat (placing it on a plate to keep cool in the fridge). Return chicken carcass back to the stockpot and allow it to contin...

Greta Thunberg chastises world leaders at UN climate summit google-play-badge_EN

© 2019 Copyright France 24 – All rights reserved. France 24 is not responsible for the content of external websites. Audience ratings certified by ACPM/OJD. Teenage climate change activist Greta Thunberg on Monday opened the United Nations Climate Action Summit with an angry condemnation of world leaders for failing to take strong measures to combat climate change – “How dare you,” she said. Days after millions of young people took to the streets worldwide to demand emergency action on climate change, leaders gathered ahead of the annual United Nations General Assembly aiming to inject fresh momentum into stalling efforts to curb carbon emissions. A visibly emotional Thunberg, 16, said in stern remarks at the opening of the summit that the generations that have polluted the most have burdened her and her generation with the extreme impacts of climate change. “This is all wrong. I shouldn’t be up here. I should be back in school on the other side of the ocean yet you all come to us young people for hope. How dare you,” said the Swedish teenager, her voice quivering. “You have stolen my dreams and my childhood with your empty words,”...
