Pa. clockmaker restores family heirlooms - Washington Times

Clocks serenade him as he works at his scarred bench, restoring and repairing wooden cases and intricate brass movements, at peace. Not everyone would hear the harmony of steady ticking punctuated by chimes and cuckoos, but the owner of Steiger Clock Shop does. Steiger , 75, examines a clock’s shiny innards arrayed before him: gears, shafts, precision crafted by masters more than a century ago. He’s redrilling a hole in a plate for a tiny bushing. “It’s not that soft (modern) stuff with a lot of lead in it. ”. His hands move steadily, like those of his clocks, patience born out of necessity. He carves an almost invisible bevel on one side of the bushing hole to create a countersink for lubricating oil. Based on the plate’s thickness and the hole’s diameter, he selects the correct bushing from a bushing gauge with tweezers. “One thing you don’t want to do is drop this one on the floor,” Steiger says. With a bushing stake and a small hammer, he taps the bushing into place. Because his pounding squashed the bushing’s aperture ever-so slightly, it’s now a fraction too tight. Out comes a cutting broach first, to shave off a microscopic layer from within the bushing, then a smoothing broach to polish out imperceptible marks in order for the gear to spin freely. “This is going to put the finishing touch to that bushing,” Steiger says.

Why Make One 'Goosebumps' Movie When You Could Make All Of Them? - The Wire

Ken Marino was cast today in Sony's Goosebumps movie , which will star Jack Black as author R. L. Stine and, from the bare-bones plot description, will see his most famous creation Slappy the living dummy unleash a bunch of monsters on a school. But what the world has really needed for years is a slew of theatrical Goosebumps adaptations, working from the best, most demented works in Stine's vast library (don't talk to me about that low-budget TV show). Like anyone else born in the mid to late '80s, I basically learned to read with Goosebumps —and I certainly learned the art of the ridiculous last-chapter plot twist (in that way, they really were the Twilight Zone for a new generation). The first-ever Goosebumps book is just straight-up terrifying if you're an upper middle class family looking to move anywhere quaint. The premise is devastatingly simple: a family moves to a new home, and the brother and sister realize everyone else who lives there is dead, and once a year, they feast on the energy of the living fools who move into the empty property. The key is keeping everything realistic and low-key. One Day at HorrorLand A family gets lost driving and happens upon a strange theme park which traps them into a bunch of rides that keep very nearly killing them.

How to Turn a Frog Egg Into a Robot's Artificial Nose - Discover Magazine (blog)

“People for many years, my lab especially, have been involved in work using Xenopus oocytes to express olfactory receptors,” said Laurence Zwiebel, professor at Vanderbilt University who was not involved in the study. ” [ LiveScience ]. Although e-noses have been around for a while–and are used to sniff out rotten food in production lines–they lack accuracy. That’s because e-noses use quartz rods designed to vibrate at a different frequency when they bind to a target substance. But this is not a foolproof system, as subtly different substances with similar molecular weights may bind to the rod, producing a false positive.
