Stuffed animals — teddy bears and bunnies and Minions — aren’t like us: They cannot bathe

Stuffed animals — teddy bears and bunnies and Minions — aren’t like us: They cannot bathe away drool and dead skin and snot. But your child’s beloved bear needs an occasional soak and scrub, too! Washing a stuffed animal is easy. But some plush toys are older, or more delicate, than others. Hand-laundering will be the right option for those well-worn toys, while machine-washing is fine for most stuffed animals. Here we’ll cover the best practices for both approaches, as well as tips for cleaning toys that cannot be submerged in water, such as dolls with electronic components. But first, some unwelcome news, perhaps: Stuffed animals, along with bedsheets and towels, are high on the list of items that should be washed after your child has been sick. Otherwise, look to give Winnie the Pooh a washup only when he appears visibly dirty or no longer passes the smell test. Stuffed toys like teddy bears or bunnies can be machine washed, which will be the easiest choice for most parents. However, you run the risk of damaging some toys by throwing them in with the wash, especially when it comes to cleaning well-loved (and well-worn) stuffed animals. Be sure to look for the manufacturer’s w...

We believe Renaissance Food Group (RFG) is in the process of experiencing a substantial decrease in

We believe Renaissance Food Group (RFG) is in the process of experiencing a substantial decrease in demand from its largest customer which should result in RFG growth turning negative. We believe Calavo continues to lose share in avocados by paying CA growers substantially less for avocados than competitors. We believe this practice has helped inflate gross profit per box. Calavo’s CEO, President of RFG, and other insiders have sold nearly $20M of stock since March of this year and reduced their collective holdings nearly 40%. Calavo has recently extended over $30M of credit to an unprofitable start-up in which Calavo’s board members have invested over $13M of equity. We believe Calavo will earn $1.60 of adjusted earnings next year.  At 20x EPS, it would trade at $32/share, nearly a 70% decline from current levels. Calavo Growers (NASDAQ: CVGW) is a provider of fresh avocados, fresh-cut food, meal kits, and guacamole to grocery chains and food services. Bulls believe that Calavo can compound EPS and revenue at a double-digit rate for many years, driven by Americans’ insatiable appetite for avocados, as well as secular trends in grocery towards fresh-cut fruits / vege...

Automotive Charge Air Cooling System Market Share to Witness Steady Rise in the Coming Decade

An automotive charge air cooling system is used to maintain and cool the temperature of intake air after it passes through the compressor preceding the engine intake manifold for improved fuel economy and increased power. In modern engines, it is imperative to ensure the temperature of the charge does not become excessive. Excessive temperatures in the engine can lead to reduced charge density and higher combustion temperatures which can directly affect power, torque, and emissions. Subsequently, with incorporation of automotive air charge cooling system, excessive temperatures can be curbed. Automotive charge air cooling systems are vital components for complying with the prevailing global environmental regulations. Moreover, compliance with the Euro 6/Tier 4F regulations also supports the increase in the sales of automotive charge air cooling system. Subsequently, the aim of the study is to analyze the most recent trends, dynamics, and potential strategies in the global automotive charge air cooling system market. Despite headwinds, the automotive charge air cooling system market presses forward at a substantial growth rate over the coming years. Increasing demand for improvem...

The LA to Las Vegas Drive: Best Attractions & Things to See on the Way

When it comes to road trips, there’s really only one way to travel between Las Vegas and Los Angeles — by channeling your inner-Hunter S. Thompson and taking a drive through the desert on Interstate 15. The journey is at least three hours and more than 200 miles, but it’s far from boring. Check out all the cool, strange, and downright confusing things you’ll see along the way, from roadside attractions to restaurants and every quirky landmark in between. Jean, NevadaInterstate 15 Exit 25 (driving south), Exit 12 (driving north) About 15 miles south of Las Vegas, you may spot something odd in the distance from the highway. No, it’s not a hallucination. It’s Seven Magic Mountains — a rainbow-colored assortment of rocks stacked in columns more than 30 feet high. The art installation was created by Ugo Rondinone and commissioned by the Nevada Museum of Art. The exhibit isn’t super convenient, which is probably by design. Seven Magic Mountains is between two interstate exits — and at least a 5-mile drive from either of them. In other words, it’s not by an off-ramp gas station. You have to care enough to go out of your way to...

Getting started with the Dremel Laser Cutter: Before the beam

While we don’t have sharks with frickin’ laser beams on their heads, we do have a laser cutter. Welcome to the first article in our new series. It’s hard to believe we’ve been working with and exploring 3D printers for three years here on ZDNet. Before MakerBot sent me their early Replicator, I had never touched a 3D printer. That said, I was pretty jaded when it came to technology. I’d seen it all and done it all. But when we queued up that very first print on the Replicator, and it extruded a doll-size table out of a string of plastic, I once again felt the excitement. This was living in the future. Since that first print, I’ve introduced you to a bunch of 3D printers and we’ve done a bunch of 3D printing projects. We’ve seen how we can put that technology to work for genuinely useful projects. We’ve also printed a whole lot of Yoda heads (which I use as test prints and take-aways for visitors to the Fab Lab). Now, it’s time to start a whole new chapter. Over the past four or five months, I’ve been building and preparing the Fab Lab. We’ll be continuing to explore 3D printers in depth, while expanding our...

If you ever had trouble grasping the complexities of succession among lords and earls in the

If you ever had trouble grasping the complexities of succession among lords and earls in the posh society of Edwardian England, a new production at Saugatuck’s Mason Street Warehouse might help. WMUK’s Gordon Bolar has this review of “A Gentleman’s Guide to Love and Murder.” This Tony Award-winning Broadway musical offers a tongue-in-cheek look at how the other half lives and follows the twisted path of Montague “Monty” Navarro, as he murders his way to the top of the wealthy and powerful house of D’Ysquith. It has uproarious laughter and duplicitous romantic encounters supported by the soaring voices of a gifted cast. Don’t be put off by the body count of those who stand in Monty’s way. A powerful and engaging performance by Elliott Litherland ensures that Monty’s charm, good looks, and poise carry the day – and the audience’s sympathies. Besides, most of the people Monty kills seem to have it coming. Take Lady Hyacinth D’Ysquith, an insufferable do-gooder and society matron. To remove her from his path of succession, Monty, in the number “Lady Hyacinth Abroad”, suggests trips to assist the downtrodden in Egypt, India, and the Congo. When the plague and cannibals, fail to...

The September edition of Maison&Object, the design industry trade fair that attracts 3,000 exhibitors and more

The September edition of Maison&Object, the design industry trade fair that attracts 3,000 exhibitors and more than 85,000 visitors, just wrapped up in Paris. From September 6-10, attendees enjoyed access to the newest design products from leading brands and manufacturers around the globe. Trends spotted included over-the-top details and moody exuberance—lots of rich colors, dark woods, and lush velvets—as well as alabaster components for lighting and accessories and cane and fringe details. Here are 12 product highlights. Corsi Design artisans collaborated with Italian architect, interior designer, and art director Paola Navone to create One-More by Paola Navone, a range of vibrant vases in soft resin. Experimenting with the colors and reflections of Primavera ceramics from the South of France resulted in Tartan, a series of faceted vessels and bowls with unexpected patterns and textures. Based on a 2018 installation at the VitraHaus by design studio Raw-Edges, founded by Shay Alkalay and Yael Mer, the Herringbone Collection by Vitra embraces the technique of immersion dying to create a trio of products: pillows, vessels, and trees. Herringbone Pillows, shown here, feature ...

Sustainable Roofing Buyers’ Guide | Earth911.com Sustainable Roofing Buyers’ Guide

For most people, buying a new roof is one of the most important and expensive maintenance decisions for their biggest investment. For many homeowners, the cheapest option is always the default choice while others choose a style they like and leave the details to a contractor. It’s not always easy to find out who makes your roofing material. It can be even harder to find out if they recycle or work to minimize their environmental impact. But the impact of our roofing choices, both on our homes and on the environment, is too great to ignore. We’ve researched roofing materials and manufacturers to make buying an eco-friendly roof easier. Our results are far from comprehensive, but as more consumers begin to demand this information, more manufacturers will begin to provide it. When they do, we’ll update our sustainable roofing results. In this article, we consider the merits of the most common manufactured roofing materials. Natural roofing materials are not manufactured, so they are not included in the comparison chart. Asphalt is the cheapest option. It is so common that many people assume you are talking about asphalt shingles when you talk about roofing. Laminate shingles (also ...
