Called also pressure-plug. An apparatus invented by Gen. Rodman for measuring the pressure exerted by the gases of exploded powder. It consists essentially of a steel plunger, on the head of which the pressure is exerted. The other end of the plunger is widened out into two cutting edges which meet at an obtuse angle. This point rests on a disk of copper, into which the cutter is driven by the pressure. The pressure is deduced from the length of the cut. Two forms of the instrument are used,—one is placed in a hole bored through the side of the gun. The other is complete in itself and is placed at the bottom of the cartridge-bag. Lieut. Metcalfe’s (U. S. Ordnance Corps) modification of the pressure-gauge has a cutter with a helicoidal edge. To measure the cut he uses a circular scale with a hole in the centre (in which the inducted copper is placed), and a radial arm to show the extent of the spiral cut. The English modification of Rodman’s instrument is called the crusher-gauge,—a short cylinder of copper is substituted for the disk,—the reduction in its length gives a measure of the pressure. The crusher-gauge is frequently attached to the base of the shot. A similar modification is used to test the power of the high explosives, such as dynamite, dualin, etc. A lead cylinder is crushed in this case. A very small charge is used. The reaction is obtained by placing a heavy cylindrical shot over the charge, which rests directly in a cavity on the top of the plunger.

Milling cutters are cutting tools typically used in milling machines or machining centres to perform milling operations (and occasionally in other machine tools). They remove material by their movement within the machine (e.g., a ball nose mill) or directly from the cutter's shape (e.g., a form tool such as a hobbing cutter).

Previously known as ShopwithStella.com, STUNABLE is a web application poised to revolutionize the way women experience fashion. Stunable is a clothing aggregator and commerce platform poised to revolutionize the way women experience fashion through new applications of API technology. Stunable powers a universal shopping cart that allows fashion retailers to sell products directly on blogs and other digital media publications.Embracing APIs and the ecosystem growth strategies they enable is rapidly becoming vital for all brands and retailers, not just technology companies. Brands that provide a compelling experience on partner and retailer websites, mobile and social apps, or in other channels will have a huge advantage over their competitors. But leveraging new online channels is not in the core competency of most brands-especially fashion brands. Stunable empowers fashion brands by leveraging API technology.Through Stunable Sync, Stunable integrates the inventories of its vendor partners via APIs, connecting fashion brands, designers, and retailers to content creators, allowing consumers to purchase content across all platforms ranging from ecommerce sites, blogs, digital publications, and other commerce-based web applications without having to redirect, as with affiliate links. Stunable handles payment processing and fulfillment for its vendor partners and currently the company offers two methods of API integration for fashion brands:(1) Login with existing inventory management platform (i.e. Shopify, Magento, Volusion, etc.) (2) Custom built API integration for a subscription fee
Work hardening, also known as strain hardening or cold working, is the strengthening of a metal by plastic deformation. This strengthening occurs because of dislocation movements and dislocation generation within the crystal structure of the material. Many non-brittle metals with a reasonably high melting point as well as several polymers can be strengthened in this fashion. Alloys not amenable to heat treatment, including low-carbon steel, are often work-hardened. Some materials cannot be work-hardened at normal ambient temperatures, such as indium, however others can only be strengthened via work hardening, such as pure copper and aluminum. Work hardening may be desirable or undesirable depending on the context. ⁕An example of undesirable work hardening is during machining when early passes of a cutter inadvertently work-harden the workpiece surface, causing damage to the cutter during the later passes. Certain alloys are more prone to this than others; superalloys such as Inconel require machining strategies that take it into account. ⁕An example of desirable work hardening is that which occurs in metalworking processes that intentionally induce plastic deformation to exact a shape change. These processes are known as cold working or cold forming processes. They are characterized by shaping the workpiece at a temperature below its recrystallization temperature, usually at the ambient temperature. Cold forming techniques are usually classified into four major groups: squeezing, bending, drawing, and shearing. Applications include the heading of bolts and cap screws and the finishing of cold rolled steel.
A person who creates or promotes high fashion, i.e. a fashion designer or fashion editor.

Complimentary accommodation means you have been granted to stay in a hotel, you will be using some or all of their services, and you won't have to pay. Usually, this happens, with airlines: when a flight is canceled, the airline office can coordinate with a hotel which will take all their clients. Those won't be paying their stay and all those rooms are credited to the airline. By Luck: when you win a competition, you can get a free stay in a hotel. With adverts: a room can be offered in exchange for very nice publicity. Of course in all those cases, hotels don't give anything freely. Either they are being paid by other companies to host their clients, or they are not paying you for the publicity you are doing for them.

A transit hotel is a short stay hotel typically used at international airports in the transit zone where airplane passengers on extended waits between planes can stay. The hotel is within the security/passport checkpoints and close to the airport terminals. No entry visa into the country is required to stay. The transit hotel "V Express" at Sheremetyevo International Airport in Moscow drew international attention in June 2013 when Edward Snowden was reported to be staying at one of the hotels after leaving Hong Kong en route to another country. Snowden's stay at the transit hotel meant that he did not have to present a visa/passport to enter Russia as the United States had revoked his passport.
Bratz is an American product line of fashion dolls and merchandise manufactured by MGA Entertainment and created by Carter Bryant.Four original 10-inch dolls were released in 2001—Yasmin, Cloe, Jade, and Sasha. They featured almond-shaped eyes adorned with eyeshadow, and lush, glossy lips. Bratz reached great success and the original line of dolls was expanded with a number of spin-offs like Bratz Kidz and Bratz Babyz, as well as media featuring the Bratz characters, including a web series, movie, TV series, music albums, and video games. In 2005, global sales were two billion dollars and, by 2006, Bratz had about forty percent of the fashion-doll market.Bratz dolls have provoked controversy in several areas. From the dolls' stylized proportions to fashion-forward clothing, the brand has always followed pop culture trends closely. For years, MGA Entertainment was involved in a lengthy legal dispute with Mattel over the rights to the Bratz design. In 2011, the dispute ended with MGA as the victors. Related litigation is ongoing in a lawsuit by MGA alleging Mattel's theft of trade secrets.In early 2010, Bratz took a brief hiatus after Mattel's first lawsuit and returned later that year to commemorate the tenth anniversary of the franchise. In 2013, Bratz changed to have a taller body and an all-new logo and branding. MGA Entertainment made the decision to completely overhaul the Bratz brand throughout 2014, in an effort to return the brand to its roots. As a result, none of the Bratz 2014 product line was offered to North American retailers. In July 2015, Bratz made a comeback and a set of new dolls were released, introducing a new main character called Raya to the lineup of Cloe, Jade, Yasmin, and Sasha as well as a new slogan and website design. The bodies were changed to be 10" tall again, but with a new body and head mold. A stop-motion web series premiered in August 2015. The Bratz app was released in September 2015 to accompany the new dolls and web series. The 2015 Bratz dolls were met with a negative reaction from fans, who felt that the dolls lacked sass and believed that MGA Entertainment ignored them and tried marketing the brand to the wrong demographic, taking away "what made the Bratz special." Due to the poor reception and sales of the new Bratz dolls, only two lines were produced for Fall 2016, and MGA replied to emails asking about the status of the brand saying that they are taking a break from making the fashion dolls. MGA Entertainment President and CEO Isaac Larian took to Twitter and announced on January 16, 2017 that Bratz would be relaunched for a third run, with many changes based on fan feedback. Based on feedback from many former Bratz fans, they rejected the new Bratz dolls and preferred the Bratz dolls released prior to the relaunch in Fall 2015 (and to some extent, prior to the relaunch in Fall 2010). On May 21, 2017, the 16th anniversary of Bratz, Larian took to Twitter once more to announce that the Bratz would be returning Fall of 2018.On May 21, 2018, the 17th anniversary of the Bratz, Hayden Williams announced that his collaboration with the brand would be released later in the year. He created a line of "Bratz Collector" dolls, in which he had complete creative control over how the dolls were produced. On the same day, the official Bratz Instagram account posted for the first time since deleting all of its posts, changing its profile picture back to the original Bratz logo, and reviving the original slogan. They posted a series of photos that comprised the phrase "Passion for Fashion."
