Since 2016, Morocco has banned the production and use of plastic bags. The Zero Mika (zero plastic) campaign, with its pros and cons, is still evolving in order to make Morocco a plastic-free country. Rabat – According to the Moroccan Ministry of Industry, Moroccan households consume about 25 billion plastic bags a year (2016). The ministry’s chart of plastic bags’ yearly consumption ranked Morocco second after the United States and ahead of Australia. Morocco accounts for 900 plastic bags per person.  After use, the plastic waste ends up dumped in the countryside as the country lacks a waste management system for recovery and recycling. Figures presented at the “Ecocean” seminar held in Tangier on June 27, 2019, showed that Morocco produces a massive amount of plastic waste leaking into the ocean. The figures place the country in the top twenty countries for ocean pollution. 51% of the waste that is found on Moroccan beaches is plastic waste. To rid Morocco of plastic bags, the Moroccan government has opted, since July 1, 2016, for a radical solution: the prohibition of plastic bags within six months after the publication of the corresponding law.  The new law came only a few ...

How Playlab, Inc. Brings Some of Virgil Abloh’s Best Ideas to Life

Within the last 10 years, the New York City-based creative studio Playlab, Inc. has published architecture magazines, dropped gigantic inflatable flowers in the middle of Rockefeller Center, and is currently working on building the first self-filtering swimming pool in a New York City river. But they’ve never helped design a fashion show.  Let alone a fashion show for Virgil Abloh and the biggest luxury brand in the world, Louis Vuitton, where he serves as the artistic director of the men’s line. Playlab, Inc. is responsible for some of the most memorable elements of Louis Vuitton Men’s Spring/Summer 2020 runway show. They created the inflatable red Louis Vuitton bouncy castle that has been seen all over Instagram and those oversized monogrammed park benches that were built so that attendees’ legs could dangle like children. Louis Vuitton crepe stands and branded party favors like Eiffel Tower keychains, miniature park benches, bubbles, and balloons were all apart of Playlab and Abloh’s unique vision for the runway show.   “We put this idea on the table early in the process, that this show should be a block party,” says Playlab, Inc. founder Archie Lee C...

Injection Molding at NPE2018: A Showplace for the ‘Smart Factory’ : Plastics Technology

In Orlando, you’ll glimpse the future, and it’s automated and interconnected. But don’t worry, there are plenty of ways for plants of all sizes to get in on these trends. Processors will learn how the Industry 4.0 “smart factory” is a whole new ecosystem, as explained in this overview from the German machinery association (VDMA), which has been the driving force behind the trend. Arburg is launching its revamped machine design and Gestica controller in North America at NPE. First model is Arburg’s largest ever, the 730-ton Allrounder 1120H. Milacron will debut the Quantum line of workhorse toggle presses with energy-saving servo-hydraulic pumps. Among the many illustrations of Industry 4.0 at NPE, Wittmann Battenfeld will show this “Wittmann 4.0” cell in which control of numerous auxiliaries is thoroughly integrated with the injection machine’s Unilog B8 controller. Bucket makers, take note: KraussMaffei’s GX 900 two-platen press with new “speed” option will mold two 5-gal paint pails with IML in less than 14 sec, using automation from Campetella.

The clear $8 Kmart travel bag to pack in your carry on luggage.

Flying anywhere when you’re not in first class isn’t the most comfortable way to spend two to 15 hours. Limited leg room. Pants falling down and/or riding up. Bra sticking into back fat. Cold feet. Smells. Yeah… not so fun. But one of the most infuriating things about flying has to be when you need something – say, a lip balm or your headphones – only to realise they’re out of reach. It’s awkward. You’ve got to do the whole leaning over the person next to you’s feet to reach your bag under the seat. Or worse, tap the mate sleeping next to you on the shoulder and ask them to get up so you can get something very important out of the overhead compartment. Check out the quick video below for some genius travel hacks to make your next flight more comfy. Post continues after video. This is why there’s a very strong argument for packing one of these clear cosmetics bags on your next flight. The premise is simple. To minimise in-flight discomfort and maximise leg room, pop your essential items in one of these mini clear bags. This includes all the little random bits you might like to reach for in the air, like: headphones, tissues, mints, toothbrush, lip balm, earplugs, eye mask, hair ...

The number of hours we spend staring at screens is probably best unknown, but how about

The number of hours we spend staring at screens is probably best unknown, but how about the technology that makes up the video on the screen? We’ve all seen a reel-to-reel projector on TV or in a movie or maybe you’re old enough to have owned one, surely some of you still have one tucked away real nice. Whether you had the pleasure of operating a projector or just watched it happen in the movies the concept is pretty straight forward. A long piece of film which contains many individual frames pass in front of a high intensity lamp while the shutter hides the film movement from our eyes and our brain draws in the imaginary motion from frame to frame. Staring at a Blu-ray player won’t offer the same intuition, while we won’t get into what must the painful detail of decoding video from a Blu-ray Disc we will look into a few video standards, and how we hack them. I’m sure most of us have noticed that an HDMI connector has quite a few connections, 19 pins make up an HDMI connector. Are all of those pins for carrying video from the set top box (insert your media player) to the display, or is there something else going on here? HDMI is orders of magnitude better in quality than any VGA...

Borderlands 3 went with a tried and true number for the starting level cap: 50. It’s been

Borderlands 3 went with a tried and true number for the starting level cap: 50. It’s been the initial cap for every main game in the series since the first, and it seems Gearbox saw no need to change it this time around. Presumably, this will change as time goes on. Borderlands tends to raise the level cap by an arbitrary number throughout the lifespan of each game in the franchise, so who knows what it could end up as by the time the dust settles. The first Borderlands initially raised the cap from 50 to 58, then 58 to 69, while Borderlands 2 raised the level cap by 11 twice (for a total of 72), and the Pre-Sequel ended up with a cap of 70. My gut says we might end up at 80, with a chance of a cheeky level cap of 73 (literally one-upping the previous mainline game’s cap). Only time will tell. With the rework of skill trees though, maybe it’s a good idea to keep the level cap a bit lower. Each tree is more specialized this time around, built mostly (if not entirely) around using the Action Skill of the respective tree. A little mix and matching feels good, but too can lead to the problem. For example, by the end of Borderlands 2, each character of a given role...
