Canopy Growth and Other Marijuana Companies Face Threat From Colombia

This copy is for your personal, non-commercial use only. To order presentation-ready copies for distribution to your colleagues, clients or customers visit http://www.djreprints.com. There used to be more than 180 rose growers along the highway in California’s Monterey County. Now they’re almost gone. The flower industry went south to the lower-cost country of Colombia. With marijuana legalization in California, Monterey’s greenhouses have shifted from growing roses to growing cannabis. But Paul Henderson—whose Salinas-based company Grupo Flor was instrumental in Monterey’s marijuana revival—isn’t waiting for North America’s cannabis growers to suffer the same fate as its flower producers. So Grupo Flor is preparing to plant its first crop a couple of hours outside the Colombian city of Cali. “When the industry starts to move toward commoditization over the next decade,” says Henderson, “Colombia is the only place that makes sense.” An equatorial climate and low-cost, skilled labor give Colombia a clear advantage in agricultural trade. And that makes the nation a threat to North American companies like Canopy Growth (ticker: CGC), Tilray (TLRY) and Aurora Cannabis (ACB). These ...

Friction Facts: Bigger pulleys really are more efficient

Pro road racers who use Berner’s uniquely oversized rear derailleur cages have sworn time and again that they reduce drivetrain friction thanks to their humongous 15-tooth pulleys. Now, Jason Smith of Boulder-based lab Friction Facts has confirmed that claim with his own independent testing. Berner-equipped racers such as Fabian Cancellara, Edvald Boasson Hagen, Philippe Gilbert and others will be relieved to know that the advantage is genuinely there – but it’s also pretty small at just 1.76 watts compared to a standard Shimano Dura-Ace setup. According to Smith, the Berner cage derives its advantages from three key principles: pulley size, cage tension and bearing friction. Smith isolated the effects of pulley size by machining 10, 11, 13 and 15-tooth pulleys to the same bearing bore and then transferring the same two cartridges between tests. Lower chain tension (i.e., the chain tension between the lower rear derailleur pulley and the bottom of the chainring), cadence, and chainring and cog sizes were kept constant throughout testing. The difference from best (15-tooth) to worst (10-tooth) was very small but still measurable at just 0.49 watts – similar to what others have ca...

It’s a big year for BMW, with the Munich outfit unveiling a brand new S1000RR, plus 1250

It’s a big year for BMW, with the Munich outfit unveiling a brand new S1000RR, plus 1250 versions of all the other ‘R’ boxers – R1250 GS Adventure, R and RS. We also get an Adventure version of the F850 – nice – and a C400 GT scooter… Here’s the inside line on the new S1000RR WE LOVED the old S1000RR, but this looks like it’ll move the game on by a fair margin. It has no less than 207bhp@13,500rpm – up 8bhp from before – from a new variable valve timing motor, and the overall mass has been slashed by 11kg, from 208kg to 197kg, ready to ride. Wow. That all-new engine gets the firm’s latest Shiftcam variable valve setup on the intake side. The system has sliding concentric outer shafts, with two different cam profiles on them, on a splined inner shaft with the drive on one end. An ECU-controlled motor switches between low- and high-speed cams at 9,000rpm (in under 10 milliseconds…), so you get soft, low-lift, short-duration cams for great low-down and midrange torque, then lumpy, aggressive profile cams for peak power production. The outer shafts are moved by a system like you have in a bike gearbox – a movable pin engaging in a cammed slot on t...

Exploring safe and intelligent multi-application liquid nitrogen cooling via auto-fill technology – Jul 01 2019 – Mr E.G.M. Bisschop – Life Science News Articles

The handling of Liquid Nitrogen (LN2) is not easy and can be extremely hazardous. Scientists are unable to avoid using LN2 as there are applications requiring the cooling power of the liquid. A system enabling the use of cryogenic cooling without the risk of coming into contact with LN2 is therefore desirable. The LN2 microdosing system is a cryogenic cooling system in which Liquid Nitrogen (LN2) is used as the cooling medium. LN2 is transferred from the Dewar to the desired application. The Norhof LN2 cooling systems stores the Liquid Nitrogen in pressureless cryogenic Dewars. When a LN2 transfer is required, a micro processor controlled heater element in the LN2 generates a small overpressure and liquid nitrogen flows out of the system like water from a tap, without spilling, noise and vibrations. The cryogenic transfer flow is variable and can be optimised to the application. These autonomous cooling systems are designed for use in scientific instrumentation environments and/or in processes that require perfect control over the temperature required. LN2 is used as the cooling medium and is taken from a storage vessel by a static pump and delivered through a fill line to the a...

Resident Evil 6 is the eighth mainline entry–when including Code: Veronica & Zero–in the popular Resident

Resident Evil 6 is the eighth mainline entry–when including Code: Veronica & Zero–in the popular Resident Evil series, announced by Capcom on January 19th, 2012 and released at October 2nd, 2012. Set in 2013, four years after Resident Evil 5 (and 10 years since the downfall of Umbrella), Resident Evil 6 brings back the two most prominent leads Chris Redfield and Leon S. Kennedy to canonically star together for the first time in Resident Evil history. Shying away from a linear progression like the most recent Resident Evil titles, Resident Evil 6 allows players to select from any of the four available campaign stories–Leon, Chris, Ada, and the new character Jake Muller–in whichever order they so choose, somewhat reminiscent of the first two Resident Evil games. Despite this freedom of choice, it was suggested by RE6 director Eiichiro Sasaki that Leon’s story be tackled first. Initially Ada’s campaign had to be unlocked upon first completing the three prior campaigns, however via a patch update it is now available from the outset. Resident Evil 6 is an action-shooter with an over-the-shoulder perspective in the same vein as prior entries, Re...

New Silk Road: Ancient trading route revived with a freight train from China to Barking

Chinese goods are coming to London by freight train for the first time in history in a 7,400-mile journey along an ancient trading route. A diesel engine has set off from the manufacturing town of Yiwu in east China bound for Barking in London with 34 carriages and £4million of socks, clothes, bags and suitcases in tow. And the goods will finally arrive in Britain via the Channel Tunnel in a fortnight, after crossing seven countries. It is part of China’s One Belt, One Road initiative, aimed at reviving the fortunes of the ancient Silk Road. In medieval times and even earlier, the route was used by merchants bringing their exotic wares to Europe from the Orient.  The trains are operated by China’s Yiwu Timex Industrial Investment, and will run once a week during a trial period. They join a twice-weekly service to Madrid in Spain via the German city of Duisburg, which was launched more than a year ago. Oscar Lin, manager of the new line’s UK agent Onetwothree Logistics, said: ‘This cargo train service highlights the important trade partnership between the UK and China post-Brexit.’ The train will eventually arrive in Britain via the Channel Tunnel, a...

The UK’s biggest local TV operator is to shut 13 of its 20 studios, meaning some

The UK’s biggest local TV operator is to shut 13 of its 20 studios, meaning some news bulletins will be hosted by presenters outside the area they serve. That’s TV operates 20 of the UK’s 34 local TV stations, broadcasting to areas from Southampton to Aberdeen. The company said it would be keeping reporters in all 20 areas, and that viewers would not notice a difference. Regulator Ofcom took “the financial difficulties the sector faces” into account when agreeing to the move. A national network of local stations was launched by then-Culture Secretary Jeremy Hunt in 2013 on channel seven or eight on Freeview. That’s TV’s stations combine local news with teleshopping. In the future, the company will operate seven regional studios, which will each broadcast the news for up to six local stations. For example, the news for That’s Hampshire, That’s Surrey, That’s South Midlands, That’s Thames Valley, That’s Salisbury and That’s Solent will all come from Salisbury. He told BBC News: “Does it make sense to be investing resources in 20 physical premises where you’re tying up quite a lot of your repo...
