Anchoring Concrete Fasteners to Block Walls Register ico-close ico-supplier ico-white-paper-case-study ico-product ico-cad

Welcome to Thomas Insights — every day, we publish the latest news and analysis to keep our readers up to date on what’s happening in industry. Sign up here to get the day’s top stories delivered straight to your inbox. For applications that require fastening to concrete blocks, it is important to gather information in advance; this will help inform decisions about where to drill into the block and the best anchor choice for the specific application. Some applications may allow each fastener to be placed in the same part of the block, while other installations require that each anchor be placed in different sections of the block. Tip: All anchors – except for concrete screws – exert an outward force. An anchor exerting this pressure against an unsupported edge decreases the anchor’s holding values. Fastening into the mortar joint can be an excellent option depending on the quality and quantity of mortar used to set the block in place. The block’s solid sections usually offer the best quality fastening; this will depend on the distance of the fastener to the unsupported edge of the cavity and the quality of the material from which the block is made. The hollow section...

Exposed: Johns Creek Mayor Office Corruption Scandal

FOIAs documents expose campaign corruption at the highest levels of Municipal government: Johns Creek Mayor, Mike Bodker. A massive trove of documents displays scandalous behavior from Mayor Bodker and his executive aide, Craig Kidd. In an astonishing conflict of interest, text messages on city phones display their discussion of conspiring City Council candidates to run for the upcoming election. There is the misuse of government time, resources, and City property. Taxpayer’s money is also left in Mayor Bodker’s garage. Why? It’s the Dirty South! Craig Kidd makes 4X the salary of his boss Mayor Mike Bodker. The part-time Mayor has a full-time employee dedicated solely to him, with a base salary of $81K. $400 per month car allowance,  gym membership, health insurance, long term disability, dental, life, full 17% 403b match and profit-sharing retirement plan.

There was a significant increase in elected Democrats to Fulton county positions that occurred during Craig Kidd’s 6 years as GOP Vice-Chair. Recently known as the ‘Blue Wave’. Much ...

44 Things That Make You Feel Better Physically & Mentally For Less Than $40 On Amazon

Life can be stressful, so it’s not at all surprising that the self-care industry is flourishing. Of course, it’s hard to shell out tons of money on self care. That’s why I’ve put together this collection of Amazon products that make you feel better, all of which are under $40. When you think about it, that’s cheaper than a massage, a spa appointment, or, you know, a beach retreat in Bali. (However, all of those things do sound nice.) If you ask me, true self care requires paying attention to both your physical and mental health — so you’ll find products here that cover each of those bases. There are selections that’ll help you take care of your mind, such as essential oils, a white noise machine, and a light therapy lamp. There are also products that’ll help you take care of your body, like a shiatsu massager, an extra-large heating pad, and a filtered wand that reduces unpleasant reactions to wine (genius, I know). You’ll also find a ton of beauty products, including healing clay masks and hydrating facial serums. Here’s the best part, though: You’ll get to partake in some retail therapy while searching for those...

Medical marijuana has been a hot topic for political debate in recent years, and now, concentrated

Medical marijuana has been a hot topic for political debate in recent years, and now, concentrated CBD has also grown in popularity as an alternative to traditional medicines. It is a common misconception that smoking marijuana and using CBD are the same thing – they’re not, and we’ll explain how in this article. Both have medical benefits but different effects. The stigmas surrounding cannabis and CBD has continued to affect medical research into its properties, but this hasn’t stopped people using it to soothe their conditions. CBD has proven to help with epilepsy, anxiety, and insomnia – and even autism spectrum disorders. Some people with autism use CBD oil or other forms of cannabidiol to help manage negative symptoms of the condition. But what is CBD, and how does it benefit those with autism? WebMD defines cannabidiol (CBD) as “a chemical in the Cannabis sativa plant, also known as marijuana or hemp.” It is the second most abundant chemical in the cannabis genus of plants – the first being THC. Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), the main psychoactive component in cannabis, is what makes marijuana users feel “high” or “stoned.” CBD, unlike THC, does not this feeling. It has antip...

Ground is an interesting topic when it comes to engineering. Either it’s the reference level for a digital circuit (not necessarily at zero volts, either), or it’s the return path for current, or it’s the metal chassis, which shouldn’t be the return path for current or else something’s terribly broken. Erika Earl’s talk at this year’s Hackaday Superconference is all about ground. The first type of ground to talk about is the ground in your outlets and walls. The AC safety ground is the third pin on your plug that should be attached to the chassis of your washer/dryer on one end, and somehow connected to the neutral wire somewhere near your breaker box. The theory of this being if a conductor touches the chassis of a lamp or appliance, all the current will go along that ground bus saving you from electrocution. It should also trip the circuit breaker. But really we’re rarely dealing with mains power around here. When it comes to electronic design, we’re mostly dealing with analog grounds and digital grounds in circuits. Sometimes these are the same, sometimes they’re not, but they’re both usually referenced to 0 Volts, Add in some considerations for EMC, and ground loops, and you...

‘The Best Thing You Can Do Is Not Buy More Stuff,’ Says ‘Secondhand’ Expert

Author Adam Minter remembers two periods of grief after his mother died in 2015: the intense sadness of her death, followed by the challenge of sorting through what he calls “the material legacy of her life.” Over the course of a year, Minter and his sister worked through their mother’s possessions until only her beloved china was left. Neither one of them wanted to take the china — but neither could bear to throw it out. Instead, they decided to donate it. Waiting in the donation line at Goodwill, Minter began wondering what would happen to the dishes: “It occurred to me this is a very interesting subject,” he says. “Nobody really knew what happened beyond the donation door at Goodwill.” Minter had spent nearly two decades reporting on the waste and recycling industries. Now he began looking into the market for secondhand goods, both domestically and in Africa and Asia. “Your average thrift store in the United States only sells about one-third of the stuff that ends up on its shelves,” he says. “The rest of the stuff ends up somewhere else.” Minter visited Goodwill donation centers in the U.S. and watched as empl...

EL CAJON — There is a scene in the classic 1941 film, “Citizen Kane” where an exuberant millionaire playboy Kane (Orson Welles) exclaims, “I think it would be fun to run a newspaper.” The context here being that publishing a paper is nothing more than a simple diversion. EL CAJON — There is a scene in the classic 1941 film, “Citizen Kane” where an exuberant millionaire playboy Kane (Orson Welles) exclaims, “I think it would be fun to run a newspaper.” The context here being that publishing a paper is nothing more than a simple diversion. In local terms, Robert Zakar, who was raised in a family of merchants and has successfully operated gas stations, grocery outlets and convenience stores, decided to take a left turn and delve into — well, for lack of a better term — the body transport business. “When people pass away, we will take the deceased to a hospital or funeral home,” Zakar said. “My brothers would handle the actual transportation, while I would do the marketing and accounting. “At first, I did not want anything to do with removing bodies, it seemed pretty creepy to me; but when I thought about it, I realized that it was about the loved ones left behind,” he said. “I fou...

Cardi B & Offset Working On New Children’s Clothing Line For 2020

It seems like the next step for a celebrity mom is to start a children’s clothing line. Lots of people have done it, with mixed results. But we’re really excited about the fashion, which could soon come for our kids with the latest celebrities to enter the kids clothing business. Cardi B and Offset are working on their latest collaboration with a children’s clothing line, and that could mean some really lit mini-fashions to come. Cardi and Offset have an adorable 1-year-old named Kulture. They have been in an on-again, off-again relationship for a while, but they work hard to co-parent their little girl, while continuing their growing careers. Both Cardi and Offset are rappers first, but they are both into the fashion game, big time. Offset actually had a new menswear capsule collection debut at Paris Fashion Week recently, and Cardi’s fashion sense landed her on a Vogue cover with Kulture recently. Some moms might not be as excited as we are about the clothing news, but that’s because they only know Cardi’s more sultry outfits. She definitely knows how to appeal to an audience, and her first forays into fashion were pretty sexy. But Cardi has...
