Ownership of cold storage space is consolidating to a degree that makes it difficult for small

Ownership of cold storage space is consolidating to a degree that makes it difficult for small processors of refrigerated and frozen products to find space for their goods, according to a report by Bloomberg. The Bloomberg article describes how Americold Realty Trust and Lineage Logistics, between them, have snapped up some 60% of the refrigerated and frozen warehouses in America. Private equity firms are aggressively pursuing deals for cold-storage facilities, which are in increasing demand in part because the push for home delivery of groceries requires more such facilities in wider distribution. As a result, it’s becoming increasingly harder for small processors, especially startups that are not in a position to sign long-term leases, to find space for their refrigerated and frozen products. In a speech to the Global Cold Chain Alliance, the owner of Jeni’s Splendid Ice Creams, pioneer of salted-caramel ice cream, described how Americold twice kicked him out of its warehouses to make room for larger customers. The situation is exacerbated by a pricing structure, supported by sophisticated digital systems, that charges according to how full customers keep their allotted space...

Turn Old PC Fans into Battery-Recharging Wind Turbines

/:16 If you’ve built your fair share of PCs over the years, you probably have quite a few old fans lying around. Here’s how to quickly give them a purpose by turning them into small wind generators. To start you’ll need an old PC fan (the bigger the better, obviously), a thick plastic bottle, an old CD, some wire, some Schottky diodes, and a few miscellaneous craft supplies. You’ll need to know how to solder, too, but beyond that, it’s a pretty simple hack. You won’t actually use the fan’s blades in your final turbine—they’re a bit too small—but a cut-up shampoo bottle works perfectly for some blades that you can then glue onto the fan’s motor. Obviously this isn’t going to power your house, but if you’re looking for a fun project that will save you a few wall outlets (which are precious commodities in the homes of us techies), this’ll do a great job of recharging the rechargeable batteries on your more power hungry devices. The above fan puts out 1.5v and 20ma, for those of you interested in the exact specs. Hit the link to check out the full instructions. Rechargeable batteries have their share of benefit...

All 2,493 items targeted by China’s tariffs in US trade war — Quartz

China’s latest tariff retaliation, announced today, will hit some $60 billion in US exports, including hundreds of agricultural, mining, and manufactured products, threatening jobs and profits at companies around the United States.  Before the trade war starts in earnest, China bought about 17% of US agricultural exports and was a major market for other goods, from Maine lobster to Boeing aircraft. It has been the largest market for Apple iPhones since 2016. Since the escalation of tariffs, though, China has stopped buying soybeans and lobsters, and Apple warned it would miss its expected Christmas holiday sales figures because of trade tensions. In addition to the 25% tariffs below, Beijing also added 20% tariffs on 1,078 US products, 10% tariffs on 974 US products, and 5% tariffs on 595 US products (all links in Chinese). The list was translated from China’s ministry of finance press release using Google translate, and may be inexact in spots. Quartz also rearranged some items on the list to group them into categories, and they may not be in the order of their “harmonized tariff schedule” codes.  Egg Tray Machine, Paper Egg Tray Machine, Corrugated Carton Machine – Wany...

Mother hits back at trolls who said her baby is a ‘monster’

A mother whose baby girl has a unique black birthmark covering most of her face in the shape of a butterfly, or Batman mask, has hit back at cruel strangers who’ve dubbed the adorable tot ‘a monster who should be killed’. Carol Fenner, 35, and her partner Thiago Tavares, 32, were initially shocked when their four-month-old daughter Luna Fenner was born with the distinctive mark, which is known as a giant congenital melanocytic nevus (GCMN).  It affects just one in 20,000 newborns worldwide and doctors warned it could be cancerous, but thankfully, an MRI scan soon showed it was not. Setting up an Instagram page to help raise awareness of birthmarks like Luna’s, Carol, of South Florida, has been buoyed by positive comments, with many of her 70,000 followers calling Luna a ‘little butterfly.’ Carol Fenner, 35, and her partner Thiago Tavares, 32, were initially shocked when their four-month-old daughter Luna Fenner (pictured) was born with the distinctive facial mark But shockingly, the baby – Carol and Thiago’s first child – has also been subject to horrific trolling. Carol, who worked in sales before Luna was born, said: ̵...
