Introducing: The Zodiac Super Sea Wolf 68 Limited Edition (Live Pics & Pricing)

Zodiac is a brand with some real history, though there are still a lot of people who don’t fully realize this. Back in the late 1960s and 1970s, Zodiac made insanely cool, colorful dive watches with Bakelite bezels (like this one), in addition to a full complement of chronographs and dress watches. To celebrate the 50th anniversary of its Super Sea Wolf diver, Zodiac is releasing this tribute watch, the Super Sea Wolf 68, aptly named for the model’s birth year. The watch has a certain vintage aura, though there’s no question it’s a modern watch. The case measures a hefty 44mm x 50mm (it’s slightly oval-shaped) and 16mm thick, and it’s made from solid stainless steel. It’s also rated to a totally insane 1,000 meters, more than any diver really needs. But a little overkill is nice sometimes, right? Beyond its serious profile, this watch is about details. First there’s the rotating bezel, which is stainless steel with a frosted finish and raised, polished markings. Also, in addition to being unidirectional, it has to be pressed down to turn – this isn’t going to accidentally move on you, even in tough conditions. Then there̵...

Glens Falls Hospital and every other hospital has published a list of starting prices for all

Glens Falls Hospital and every other hospital has published a list of starting prices for all medical procedures, in compliance with a new transparency law. Glens Falls Hospital and every other hospital has published a list of starting prices for all medical procedures, in compliance with a new transparency law. Glens Falls Hospital, and every other hospital in the country, on Jan. 1 published a list of prices for every medical procedure offered. They were required to by law. But the so-called “chargemaster” list does not show real prices. Instead, it shows the starting price that each hospital begins with before negotiating with health insurance companies. In other words, the prices are the worst possible scenario: most procedures should cost less in reality. You can’t just ask your health insurance company for those negotiated rates, although United Health Care offers some prices online on a “price calculator” for members only. “You could ask the provider for an estimate, but the only way you’ll really know is at the end when they bill you,” said an employee at United Health Care, who asked to be anonymous because she was not authorized to speak to the press. To view Glens Fal...

In anticipation of the long weekend, many Americans are stocking their fridges with beer, wine, and other alcoholic beverages. A growing number of people are also reaching for hard seltzers, a relatively recent but increasingly popular addition to liquor store shelves. According to market research conducted by The Nielsen Company, sales of hard seltzers increased by 193 percent between the spring of 2018 and 2019. A blend of carbonated water, alcohol, and fruit flavoring, they also tend to be light in alcohol and low in carbohydrates and calories. “Hard seltzers usually have between 5 to 7 percent [alcohol by volume], making them a lower alcohol choice compared with wine, some beers, and mixed cocktails,” Libby Mills, MS, RDN, LDN, FAND, a registered dietitian nutritionist and national spokesperson for the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics, told Healthline. One popular brand of hard seltzer called White Claw contains 100 calories and 2 grams of carbohydrates per 355 mL can, with an alcohol content of 5 percent. That’s similar to many brands of light beer. Such numbers have led marketers to push hard seltzers as a good choice for health-conscious consumers. With their low carbo...

Chinese crawlers tie up to a ‘reefer’ – the refuelling and offloading vessels that service the long-distance fleets One Wednesday in March, 2019, a small group of ocean experts gathered in a conference room in Panama City’s Waldorf Astoria, ready to take the stage. Outside, the weather was hot and muggy and the streets dirty with rubble from nearby roadworks. Inside the cool, marbled interior of one of the city’s glitziest hotels, government officials from Panama, Ecuador, Colombia and Costa Rica sat on cream chairs in neat rows, listening intently. First came the usual formalities: welcome addresses and statements of intentions to collaborate. About halfway through the morning’s proceedings, it was Bjorn Bergman’s tur...

Registered in England and Wales. Number 8860726. Texas Instruments rolled out a new battery charger IC that boosts the run time of compact consumer and medical electronics while cutting charging times and filling up more of the battery’s available capacity. The new switching battery charger IC can add more than 5% of run time to the average battery crammed inside wearables, earbuds, patient monitoring devices and wireless charging cases, the Dallas, Texas-based company said. The BQ25619 is designed to limit how much current is lost when the charge entering the battery is cut off—called the termination current. Once a lithium-ion battery is fully charged, energy must be shut down to prevent overcharging, which can not only degrade the battery’s capacity but can also lead to dangerous conditions that cause it to overheat. It supports 20 mA in termination current. Other chips on the market draw more than 60 mA, Texas Instruments said. 13x Molecular Sieve The BQ25619 also limits standby cu...

Mining mega-mergers, such as Newmont-Goldcorp and Barrick-Randgold, are spurring similar business combinations in the supplier space,

Mining mega-mergers, such as Newmont-Goldcorp and Barrick-Randgold, are spurring similar business combinations in the supplier space, said Pekka Vauramo, President and CEO of the newly-formed Metso Outotec. On July 4 Metso and Outotec announced that they were combining. In 2018, the two companies had combined sales of $4.74 billion (€4.2 billion), which would rank the newly-combined company as number two in the process technology sector, just behind Sandvik. “When customers consolidate we have to look at similar actions. Bigger customers look at suppliers who are relevant to them,” said Vauramo. Vauramo, who left Finnair about a year ago to head Metso, said the two mining businesses are complementary. “If you look at the mineral processing business altogether, Metso is known as being very strong in the comminution, the front end. Outotec’s strengths are in the backend starting from beneficiation all the way to metals refining,” said Vauramo. “Customers appreciate someone who can be strong throughout the chain, who can innovate and take a very holistic view of the entire chain.” Vauramo likes the current gold price. This summer gold appe...
