Millclock ZIN18 Nixie clock gives modern tech a retro touch » Gadget Flow

first_imgThe Millclock ZIN18 Nixie Clock is sure to start conversations. This creative clock features Nixie tubes, which were used in the 50s as light-up numeric indicators in technical equipment. The tubes were handmade and required expertise to manufacture. Today, they harken back to a different era. The Nixie tubes in this clock are also handmade and use higher-quality materials than the originals. They’re also pretty energy efficient. Moreover, the ZIN18 comes with a smartphone app and has a touch-sensitive control panel that allows you to set the time. Additionally, this clock synchronizes its timing with the internet, so you won’t have to worry when it’s time to move the clocks forward or back. Best of all, it has its own alarm. With this retro clock, what’s old really is new again. – Advertisement –last_img read more

NC Special: Grant ‘proud’ of Hearts despite losing to Kotoko

first_imgDespite the painful loss to rivals, Kotoko, in Sunday’s NC Special Tier 1 Competition semi-finals, Hearts of Oak head coach, Kim Grant, still has a lot of respect and admiration for his players.The Phobians needed to a 94th minute penalty from Christopher Bonney to bring them back into the game after conceding in the 5th minute of the first half.Unfortunately, they failed to match Kotoko’s precision in the shootout and lost 5-4.However, despite failing to make the finals, Grant said after the match that he was very pleased with the efforts the players had given on the day and all through the tournament.“What I would like to say is that I am so proud of the boys because they kept on going and going. In the second half, we controlled the game and I tried to make the changes to get the momentum going and Kotoko on the back foot.We had one penalty disallowed and we got a second one later. I was looking for that never-say-die attitude and the boys showed it.If these boys stay together and keep working hard, they will go places. Unfortunately, it was our second semi-final loss but it is a work in progress. In that short space of time that I have been here, I am proud of what they have done. I hope that they learn from this and we will come back stronger next year.”Hearts fell out of the NC Special Tier 2 competition via the same penalty shootout. They lost 4-2 to UniStar Academy but Grant refused to draw conclusions on whether the incidents were the beginning of a pattern.“I am not bothered by the losses we have had in shootouts. When it gets to penalties, it is a matter of fine margins and luck. They took theirs and scored and we missed ours. It is that simple. I feel bad for the players but they have worked hard to get here and I am proud of them.”With Hearts out of the two competitions organised by the Normalisation Committee, it is unclear what the team will do next in terms of keeping their players active ahead of the resumption of normal football in Ghana.The likeliest option for the club is to organise friendly matches with teams in and outside Ghana.last_img read more

Orioles-Nationals game suspended because of grounds crew’s tarp failure

first_imgThe Orioles and Nationals will have to complete their Sunday matchup later in the week because the Nats’ grounds crew couldn’t roll the tarpaulin onto the field quickly enough as rain swamped  the Nationals Park infield.Video of the grounds crew losing its battle against the tangled tarp rocketed around the internet Sunday afternoon. The crew couldn’t restore the drenched infield even after the rain had stopped and the sun had come out.MORE: Angels rookie knocks ball over the fence with his glove”I don’t know if you’d call it a rain delay,” Nationals starter Stephen Strasburg told reporters, per MLB.com. “I think it was more of a tarp delay.” That, in turn, forced umpires to suspend the game at the point of the delay: in the top of the sixth inning with the Orioles leading 5-2. MLB Rule 7.02(a)(3) calls for games to be suspended when there is a “malfunction of, or unintentional operator error in employing, a mechanical or field device or equipment under the control of the home club (e.g., a retractable roof, a tarpaulin, or other water removal equipment).”The contest will resume Friday in Baltimore, where the teams are set to play a weekend series.”I was unaware of the mechanical part of the rule. Now I know. I’ve never been a part of something like this,” Orioles manager Brandon Hyde said, per MLB.com.last_img read more
