Are you adding an extension to your property or intending to replace your existing roof? While

Are you adding an extension to your property or intending to replace your existing roof? While it makes sense to replace your roof with the same roofing material, you should consider and compare all options. If you are adding a new kitchen extension, or a new bedroom on the second floor, you will need to build a new roof entirely, and you can pick any tiles you want. As promised, here is Part 2 on how to choose the best roof tiles for your home. Slate shingle roofs have been used for centuries, especially in medieval castles and churches, and are known for their opulent appearance, natural beauty, and excellent longevity. Made from natural stone, slate shingles can last you for at least 100 years. It’s no wonder that the slate roofs on historical buildings still appear ageless even after years of punishing weather. Quality comes at a price though; because slate shingles are one of the most expensive roofing materials. They’re also extremely heavy, so you may need additional structural support. Slate roofs are complex to install and require an expert roofing contractor. Otherwise, it will lead to further roofing problems such as leaks and costly damages. Composite shingles are m...

2 Stocks to Buy Now Ahead of the $2 Billion Infrastructure Spending Spree

The one issue both parties in Washington can agree on is infrastructure spending. Spending estimates for an infrastructure bill are as high as $2 trillion. That’s why we’re giving you the top stocks to buy now before the U.S. government allocates trillions for these major projects. Democratic leaders have recently agreed with U.S. President Donald Trump on allocating as much as $2 trillion in new spending through a bipartisan bill that calls for the rebuilding of U.S. infrastructure. Gridlock remains a reality in Congress for a variety of issues, but this infrastructure bill is an exception and could end up on the president’s desk for signature by the end of the year. This would be a monumental stimulus project, but it will also be a catalyst for infrastructure companies. But not all infrastructure stocks are worth owning. Instead, we’ve used our proprietary stock ranking tool to find stocks with the best chance of breaking out higher. And the infrastructure bill could be just the catalyst they need to juice their returns.

[Stable OTA] Huawei P10, Mate 9 series EMUI 9.1 update beta recruitment goes live

Unlike Apple, Android OEMs need time to shape up newer version of Android for their existing devices. More and more companies are now taking part in the early testing phase of Google’s upcoming major version update aka Android Q, but day-one OTA is still a dream for majority of the Android users. Some of these vendors prefer to announce an estimated date of delivering the update, but often end up with a heavily rushed, botched build. Others, like OnePlus, do not want to give any kind of approximation to avoid further issues. Chinese OEM Huawei (along with their sub-brand Honor) usually takes a middlesome policy. They do provide software updates for their legacy devices, but after a series of thorough internal and public beta testing phases. Afterwards, they declare a tentative timing to rollout the final stable build. One such list was surfaced earlier, according to which a bunch of phones such as Huawei P10/P10 Plus were supposedly running though internal beta testing of EMUI 9.1 (based on Android 9.0 Pie). Now we have the official confirmation of the claim as Huawei China is recruiting public beta testers of EMUI 9.1 for the following phones: These devices are circa 2017 and ...

Air conditioning compressors aren’t exactly a mainstay of the average hacker’s junk box. Typically, they’re either

Air conditioning compressors aren’t exactly a mainstay of the average hacker’s junk box. Typically, they’re either fitted to a car to do their original job, or they’re on the bench getting refurbished. However, with the right mods, it’s possible to turn one into a functioning internal combustion engine. The build starts by disassembling the compressor, which contains three double-sided pistons. The housing is drilled with ports to allow gas to flow into and out of the cylinders, as well as to transfer from one side of the piston to the other. Acrylic end plates are fitted to the assembly. One end acts as an intake manifold, delivering air and fuel to the cylinders. The other side acts as the cylinder head, mounting the sparkplugs. Everything is then connected with acrylic tubing and a small square section of acrylic is turned into a carburetor to supply the air-fuel mix. Ignition is handled by coils triggered by the movement of the flywheel. After an initial failure due to the acrylic manifold cracking, a stronger part is fabricated, and the engine bursts into life. The acrylic end caps give a great view of the combustion process in action. We’d love to see the a dyno graph on ...

Continuing the photo essay about public libraries, which showed many examples of children’s rooms and adult

Continuing the photo essay about public libraries, which showed many examples of children’s rooms and adult spaces, this collection shows some of the multitude of activities happening at public libraries. It also includes some of the kinds of collections besides books, and some of the public places where books are available to borrow besides at traditional libraries. Makerspaces are becoming popular in libraries around the country. Some are sophisticated, others modest. Makerspaces harken back to Benjamin Franklin’s early days in the Philadelphia subscription library, where he conducted some of his early experiments in electricity. Ben Franklin was the founder, in a way, of modern makerspaces in libraries. The southmost public library near the Rio Grande in Brownsville, Texas, has an observatory that is used occasionally. The library also hosts movie-and-popcorn events for children who are incarcerated in detention centers alone after having crossed the border from Mexico to Texas. The modest makerspace inside the Dodge City, Kansas, library. It was put together by a young librarian who grew up across the street from the library. He has gathered mostly people’s cast off items, l...

If you only use your conservatory occasionally because it’s often either too hot or too cold,

If you only use your conservatory occasionally because it’s often either too hot or too cold, here are some insulation ideas to convert it into a year-round living space. A conservatory can be a great addition to your home – if only it wasn’t too hot to use in the summer, and too cold in the winter. Research has shown the average south-facing conservatory reaches a comfortable temperature for just two hours a day if there’s no fan in the summer and heating in winter. The extreme variations in temperature are because glass or polycarbonate roofs and walls have very little insulation. But there are steps you can take to insulate your conservatory. There’s the more expensive options, such as having a lightweight metal roof professionally fitted before insulation and a new ceiling is added. Alternatively, some companies will put insulation between the conservatory roof rafters and conceal it behind a new ceiling, or install multilayer foil insulation to the underside of the roof. These measures can provide good insulation, although they prevent any light from entering through the roof. But condensation may form on the underside of the roof, and this can drip on to the insulation, ca...
