Care and Feeding is Slate’s parenting advice column. Have a question for Care and Feeding? Submit it here or post it in the Slate Parenting Facebook group. I come from a long (very long) line of dysfunction that has, thankfully, improved a bit with each generation. While my great-grandmother was cruel, violent, manipulative, abusive, and neglectful, my own mother was mostly just absent. I’ve tried very hard to break that cycle and have a warm and close relationship with my own children. My grandmother (who fell more to the neglectful and manipulative end of the spectrum) is still alive, but lives in another state and we are mostly estranged. I send Christmas and birthday cards, and occasional brief notes with photos of my children and we speak on the phone about twice a year. She hasn’t seen me or my children in a decade. Unsurprisingly, she has no idea who they are. When I force them to wish her a Merry Christmas during our semi-annual phone call, she has no idea which child is which. I do all of these things, by the way, not out of love or affection, but out of some perverse need to “take the high road” in the relationship and try to insulate myself against regretful recrimina...

But figuring out which bag to take with you isn’t always easy. With countless styles, sizes,

But figuring out which bag to take with you isn’t always easy. With countless styles, sizes, and prices to compare, shopping for luggage can be overwhelming. To help you find the right bag or bags, here are the factors about how you travel to consider, details on luggage types, luggage features to look for, and other shopping tips. Bon voyage! How Do You Travel?Do you mostly fly, drive, or go on cruises? For airplane travel, familiarize yourself with the luggage rules of the airlines you plan to fly on. If you go on road trips, look for bags that are pliable enough to maximize your trunk space. For cruise ships—which stack baggage in the boat’s belly before departure—flat, rigid luggage is best. How Will You Store Your Luggage?Once the luggage gets home, where will you put it? Hard-sided bags are the most unforgiving; you can’t squeeze them into a storage space. Soft-sided, structured bags have a little forgiveness on the front and back. If you have no place to store a stand-up suitcase, you may have to limit yourself to duffels or bags. What Size Luggage Do You Need?This will depend mainly on the length of your trip and, if you are flying, airline luggage restrictions. It also ...

M&A soared in 2018; Autodesk, Hershey, Stryker closed notable deals

M&A was robust with in 2018, with deal activity in the U.S. middle market exceeding $400 billion in 2018, the first year to achieve the milestone, according to a report by PitchBook. Dealmakers closed 2,971 transactions in the middle market (defined by deals worth $1 billion and less) with a total deal value of $427.9 billion. The activity represents an increase of about 15 percent in both volume and value from the previous year. “A sustained market appetite for high-yield bonds and leveraged loans led to an easy financing environment in which dealmakers were able to attain attractive pricing for deal financing,” writes private equity analyst analyst Wylie Fernyhough. On a cautionary note looking forward, he points out that, “attitudes began to change in the fourth quarter, as the leveraged loan market—which has swollen in size since the financial crisis—saw downward swings in pricing.” Overall M&A thrived as well, with the aggregate value of announced global mergers and acquisitions reaching the highest level since 2015, according to information collected by Bureau van Dijk, a Moody’s Analyticscompany. Deal value increased 10 percent over the pre...

Hydraulic Options for High-Force Pressing | 2019-05-06

Some assembly technologies evolve too fast or too slow, while others change at a pace that’s just right. Hydraulic presses belong in the latter category, according to some suppliers, and that’s a good thing. “The biggest area of growth for hydraulic press technology lies in the controls system,” notes Josh Dixon, director of sales and marketing at Beckwood Press Co. “Automotive, aerospace and medical manufacturers want and need advancements in operator control, press-data acquisition, process monitoring, quality control and maintenance scheduling. These benefits nicely complement the hydraulic press’s ability to generate high force over a small area and equally throughout the stroke.” All of these capabilities are important to companies with hydraulic pressing applications, especially those that require 10 tons or more of force. Beckwood has been engineering hydraulic and other presses since 1976, including machines that exceed 5,000 tons of force. One regular user of a high-force Beckwood press is Fike Corp., a global supplier of fire protection, pressure relief, over-pressure protection and pressure activation devices. Fike currently runs five Beckwood machines, including a 2,...

Tossed circuit boards are about 20% copper, a much larger fraction than the roughly half a percent in copper ore mined from the ground. That percentage, plus the growing mounds of global electronic waste, drives the hunt for effective and green methods for extracting copper from circuit boards. A new method takes advantage of ball milling, a brute force means of jumpstarting chemical reactions (Environ. Sci. Technol., 2019, DOI:10.1021/acs.est.8b06081). If the simple process can be scaled up, it would be more eco-friendly and efficient than current methods for recovering copper from circuit boards. Global electronic waste exceeds 40 million tons and is growing at a rate of 3-5% per ...

Good news! You can beat diabetes without giving up pasta or puddings 

It might be a delicious, steaming bowl of spaghetti, or toast in the morning. Perhaps it’s a jacket potato for lunch, a couple of biscuits, or a banana and a glass of milk before bed. All are dietary staples enjoyed by millions of Britons. But would you give them all up if it could ‘cure’ your type 2 diabetes, or prevent it from happening it the first place? The answer might well be yes. Or at least, ‘I’ll give it a go.’ And some experts now advise just this, as part of a so-called low-carb diet. It might be a delicious, steaming bowl of spaghetti, or toast in the morning. Perhaps it’s a jacket potato for lunch, a couple of biscuits, or a banana and a glass of milk before bed. All are dietary staples enjoyed by millions of Britons  For those facing a lifetime of medication, with the threat of illness, disability and an early death looming due to the blood sugar condition, the promise is persuasive – no matter if it means giving up a few of life’s pleasures. In April, it was announced that one such diet plan, The Low Carb Program, had received approval to be prescribed by NHS GPs to people with type 2 diabetes and also those with pre-diabetes. Half of a typical meal would be vege...
