Pants Or Skirt? The Debate Behind The New School Uniforms Policy In Mexico City

MEXICO CITY — Skirt or pants? Children and teenagers in Mexico City’s public schools will be able to choose what to wear regardless of their gender. But the gender-neutral uniform policy in Mexico City’s basic education system comes with controversy. How hard will it be for the measure to promote tolerance and diversity? Classes are over in Mexico City on a warm afternoon. School buses depart, and parents pick up their kids. Among them is Lourdes Ríos, mother of two 13-year-old girls and students of a public junior high school. Ríos agrees with Mexico City’s new rule for public school uniforms, which allows students to wear skirts or pants regardless of their gender. As we chat, another mom joins our conversation. She’s Maricarmen Tapia, who at first said it would be weird for boys to wear a skirt, but later adds that men in Scotland and in ancient cultures used to wear them — so why not? “Pants would be great for teenage girls. Skirts make them an easy target for bullies” Tapia said. “When I was young, we had to wear white skirts, which was even worse, because when we were in our period, it wasn’t comfortable at all.”  “It’s time to take off the bandage from our ey...

The Spare Tire Windshield Washer System in Old Volkswagens Is Both Ridiculous and Clever

As a painful-to-be-around hardcore old air-cooled Volkswagen geek, I sometimes forget that the arcane details and quirks of these old cars are not necessarily common knowledge to everyone. That’s why I was actually surprised to find that some of my colleagues—equally hardcore gearheads though they are—didn’t know the goofy yet wonderful method old Volkswagens used to wash their windshields. On the off chance that you don’t know either, I’d be delighted to tell you all about it. So prepare yourselves. Let’s start by just reminding ourselves exactly what a car’s windshield washer is and does. The job of the windshield washer system in most cars can be, if you’re a clever enough student of language, discerned by the name: it washes the windshield. It’s a complex, subtle thing, but I think you get it. The way this usually happens is via the expulsion of a cleaning fluid, like water or some Windexian compound, onto the surface of the windshield, and then the windshield wipers wipe it all over the, um, windshield. It’s the part that involves the spraying of the fluid that I want to focus on. To spray fluids with some force out of a little nozzle, you need either a muscular bladder lik...

01. I Muffle Your Inner Choir 02. The Hardship of the Scots 03. Old Star 04. Alp Man 05. Duke of Gloat 06. The Key is Inside the Wall The progression of extreme metal legends DARKTHRONE from black metal genre pioneer to ambassadors of pure heavy metal expression has been fun to experience. While some of their contemporaries continue to put out competent-yet-watered-down rehashes of works that defined the genre and others self-destructed under the weight of their own psychological excesses, Fenriz and Nocturno Culto quietly continue to get together every few years, plug in, and crank out musical statements awash with heavy metal revelry that cement their status as masters of the genre, aging gracefully. There are no diatribes on the state of the extreme metal scene. There are no overly verbose manifestos decrying the lack of danger in modern heavy metal. There are no self-aggrandizing ego trips bordering on oblivious self-parody. Devin Townsend screamed that “The time has come to forget all the bullshit and rock!” in the chorus of “Liberation”, the opening track of his 2012 record, “Epicloud”. That’s exactly what happens when a new DARKTH...

InMode Introduces Triton: The World’s First and Only Simultaneous Multi-Wavelength Hair Removal

NEW YORK, July 12, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — InMode Ltd., a manufacturer and distributor of medical-aesthetic technology to doctors around the world, is pleased to announce the launch and FDA clearance of the Triton hair removal device. Triton, is the first and only high power laser to offer simultaneous multi-wavelength hair removal firing, allowing concurrent emissions of Alexandrite, Diode and Nd:YAG wavelengths. With the Triton’s simultaneous multi-wavelength, practitioners are now able to treat a broader range of hair and skin types with a high level of power. Combining the three most popular hair removal wavelengths in one device, practitioners can now achieve safety and efficiency, without compromising results. In the past, lasers had to reduce peak power or increase pulse width to reduce the risk for postinflammatory hyperpigmentation (PIH) in darker skin types. Now with the Triton, high power and a blend of wavelengths are optimized make this the ultimate system for hair removal. According to the American Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgery 2017 survey, hair removal is the number one sought after energy-based aesthetic procedure in the world.   5 In 1 Beauty Machi...

When it comes to robots, we usually see some aluminum extrusion, laser-cut parts, maybe some 3D

When it comes to robots, we usually see some aluminum extrusion, laser-cut parts, maybe some 3D printed parts, and possibly a few Erector sets confabulated into a robot arm. This entry for the Hackaday Prize is anything but. It’s a robot chassis, a 3D printer, and the structural frame for any sort of moving project that’s made out of a special composite material. [Marc]’s project for the Hackaday Prize is all about articulated mechanisms. Instead of the usual structural components, he’s using Hylite, a special material that’s basically a polypropylene core clad in a sheet of aluminum on both sides. By carefully milling away the aluminum on both sides, [Marc] is creating a living hinge that can be used to build a 3D printer, robot, or really anything else. This really isn’t a finished project; it’s more of a technology demonstrator. That said, [Marc] has a lot of examples where he can bend these Hylite aluminum plates over on themselves, can create boxes and space frames, and has the ability to create just about any shape he wants. It’s really a highly precise means of bending aluminum with a mill, and has the added benefit of looking really, really good. Already, [Marc] has a f...

T.W. Paterson column: HMCS Athabaskan’s fiery end came quickly

“When I got over there and stepped on the base of the starboard Oerlikon motor mount, it just seemed like I’d stepped on a detonator to set off the second explosion.”—former seaman Joe Bell. Lesser known in the epochal story of D-Day is the vital role played by ships of the Royal Canadian Navy in sweeping the English Channel of enemy shipping, before, during and after the initial invasion. Among them was the destroyer HMCS Athabaskan, whose tragic end is yet clouded in mystery and controversy. Last week we saw how this second destroyer escort of the powerful new Tribal Class to be constructed for the Royal Canadian Navy narrowly escaped destruction on Aug. 27, 1943, when struck by a newly-developed glider bomb known as a “Chase Me Charlie.” Five men were killed and 13 wounded but Athabaskan, commissioned just six months before, lived to fight again. In 1969 former Athabaskan shipmates held a 25th reunion in Toronto and the Victoria Colonist asked me to interview two local men, Steve Dunnell and Joe Bell. The destroyer’s former chief ordnance artificer, by then retired after 25 years with the Victoria Police Department, Dunnell had been assigned to the destroyer while she was sti...
