Trump Administration Plans to Ban Flavored E-Cigarettes

As vaping-related illnesses spread, President Trump and top health officials met at the White House to discuss ways to keep the products away from teenagers. WASHINGTON — The Trump administration said on Wednesday that it would ban the sale of most flavored e-cigarettes, at a time when hundreds of people have been sickened by mysterious lung illnesses and teenage vaping continues to rise. Sitting in the Oval Office with the government’s top health officials, President Trump acknowledged that there was a vaping problem and said: “We can’t allow people to get sick. And we can’t have our kids be so affected.” Alex M. Azar II, the health and human services secretary, said that the Food and Drug Administration would outline a plan within the coming weeks for removing flavored e-cigarettes and nicotine pods from the market, excluding tobacco flavors. The ban would include mint and menthol, popular varieties that manufacturers have argued should not be considered flavors. The White House and the F.D.A. have faced mounting pressure from lawmakers, public health officials, parents and educators, who have grown alarmed by the popularity of vaping among teenagers but have felt powerless to...

Machine vision system automatically gauges parts and archives images for trending

When a small automotive spiral spring manufacturer sought to improve its production process, Industrial Control was brought on to develop a machine vision system for gauging. When a small automotive spiral spring manufacturer sought to improve its production process, Industrial Control (Zeeland, MI, USA; www.industrialcontrol.com) was brought on to develop a machine vision system for gauging. Required measurements for the system include the length of the inner and outer hook ends, the angle of the hooks with respect to each other from spring center, and the radius of the hook end loop. Once a person inserts a part into a tray, a PVD series single-piece part verification sensor array from Banner Engineering (Minneapolis, MN, USA; www.bannerengineering.com) activates the system, signaling an MX-40E vision controller from Datalogic (Bologna, Italy; www.datalogic.com) to activate WLS27 series white LEDs from Banner inside the cabinet. When the tray is inserted into the cabinet, the PVD arrays trigger a greyscale camera, also from Datalogic, to acquire an image of the part after hands are no longer in view. The camera’s 12 MPixel CMOS sensor pairs with an MTL-24018C-008 large format,...

COMMENCE: Surgical AVR with bioprosthetic valve confers improved outcomes at 4 years

Patients who underwent surgical aortic valve replacement with a bioprosthetic valve with novel tissue was safe with favorable hemodynamic performance at 4 years, according to data presented at the American Association for Thoracic Surgery 99th Annual Meeting “This is a technology that … sets patients up for either a potential re-operation down the road depending on the age that they have a valve put in or for TAVR down the road,” Lars G. Svensson, MD, PhD, chairman of the Heart & Vascular Institute at Cleveland Clinic, told Cardiology Today. “This is a valve that a lot of young people will be asking for. So far, everything looks good with the valve.” Bartley P. Griffith, MD, professor of surgery at University of Maryland School of Medicine in Baltimore, and colleagues analyzed data from 689 patients (mean age, 67 years; 72% men) from 27 centers who underwent surgical AVR. “This is a biological valve that we deliberately tried to put into younger patients,” Svensson said in an interview. “About 20% of the patients were lower than the normal recommended age of putting in a biological valve.” “Those were a couple of important advantages: dry storage, potential better lon...

The star turn of most hackspaces and other community workshops is usually a laser cutter. An

The star turn of most hackspaces and other community workshops is usually a laser cutter. An expensive and fiddly device that it makes much more sense to own collectively than to buy yourself. This isn’t to say that laser cutters are outside the budget of the experimenter though, we’re all familiar with the inexpensive table-top machines from China. Blue and white boxes that can be yours for a few hundred dollars, and hold the promise of a real laser cutter on your table. Owning one of these machines is not always smooth sailing though, because their construction and choice of components are often highly variable. A thorough check and often a session of fixing the non-functional parts is a must before first power-on. [Extreme Electronics] bought one, and in a series of posts documented the process from unboxing to cutting. Starting with a full description of the machine and what to watch for out of the box, then a look at the software. A plugin for Corel Draw was supplied, along with a dubious copy of Corel Draw itself. Finally we see the machine in operation, and the process of finding the proper height for beam focus by cutting an inclined plane of acrylic. The series rounds ...
