A stainless steel kitchen sink should be the ultimate accessory of any kitchen. But since all stainless steel sinks come in different sizes and styles, selecting the right one may become a daunting task.

Before you window-shop for your next stainless steel sink, make sure that you have the correct dimensions of your counter top. As a rule of thumb, single basin sinks look better in smaller kitchens and for larger kitchens double-bowls or even triple-bowls are ideal.

If you have a standard size kitchen, it is very likely that you are using a double-basing sink, which fits perfectly in cabinets that are 36 inches long. If your next remodeling project does not include the change of these cabinets, it is best that you pick your new stainless steel kitchen sink with the same dimensions.

If you are rebuilding your kitchen and want to add a separate island as working area or even a dish washer, you can opt for a smaller single-bowl stainless steel kitchen sink, as these are more practical and take up much less space than traditional ones.

Keep in mind that though your next kitchen sink is for practical uses such as washing your dishes and preparing foods, a sink will add a stylish accent that no other item in the kitchen will. So, make sure that your current or future accessories match the look of your new kitchen sink, which may come as brushed metal or as a polished look.

Though the traditional stainless steel sinks come in these two styles, many manufacturers also offer other finishes, such as antique, copper, hammered, weathered, among others. To pick the right one it is recommended that you have an idea of the color and style of your cabinets and other accessories, kitchenware, appliances, furniture and even the color of your kitchen walls.

One major reason people choose stainless kitchen sinks is for their durability, low maintenance and low price. And some new styles of stainless steel sinks are designed with technological properties such as an undercoating that muffles sound. If you will be handling many heavy objects such as cast iron pots and pans, make sure that you ask about the strength of the material of your next kitchen sink. As a rule of thumb, a stainless steel kitchen sink made with a lower gauge will be sturdier and quieter.

High-end stainless steel kitchen sinks are made of 18 to 19 gauge.

If you are looking to entertain your relatives and friends, pick a kitchen sink that will offer a wow factor and become the conversation piece of you kitchen; a polished one may do the trick.

If you cook frequently, select a stainless steel kitchen sink with double-basins, as it will allow for more working space to cook efficiently and even hold foods as you cook them. You can actually speed up the cooking process by doing the dishes on one side as you use the other for your cooking needs.

Always ask for the opinion of your vendor before selecting the right kitchen sink, and bring photos of your kitchen or samples of the material of your counter tops to match with ease.

A New Damon Electric, New Alpinestars Airbag Vests

On top of all the expected unveilings of gadgetry aimed for fun and productivity, this year’s Consumer Electronic Show featured more compelling futuristic cars and car tech than we’ve seen in a while. It also was the site of some cool two-wheeled—and two-wheel-related—news.To get more news about ev, you can visit davincimotor.com official website.

We first saw Damon at CES two years ago. Back then it was showcasing a new electric motorcycle called the HyperSport that could switch from sport bike to touring bike at the push of a button: handlebars raised up, windscreen raised, pegs went back, seat slid forward, and voila, you go from hunched-over sport bike to more comfortable sport touring bike. At this year’s CES Damon Motors showed off its new limited-edition HyperFighter Colossus, “the ultimate stripped-down urban assault sportbike derived from Damon’s first bike, HyperSport.”

“The HyperFighter Colossus motorcycle redefines the streetfighter category with a powerfully-charged limited edition model,” said Jay Giraud, co-founder and CEO, Damon Motors. “The HyperFighter is a stripped-down demon of a bike that is not for the faint of heart, so that riders can fight traffic, fight gas, and fight compromise. We’re excited to give the naked sports bike fanatic everything they want, coupled with the unrivaled technological features found only on Damon bikes. Only 100 HyperFighter Colossus motorcycles will hit the road, making them highly coveted.”
The new bike promises 200 hp, “more than” 148 lb-ft of torque, 0-60 mph in less than three seconds, and a top speed of 170 mph. Range is listed at 146 miles. The HyperSport of two years ago was said to go 200 miles. Damon says something it calls HyperDrive is the key to the bike’s performance. It describes HyperDrive as the “world’s first monocoque-constructed, 100 percent electric, multi-variant powertrain optimized for maximum performance, design and safety,” which, to be frank, is more than a little vague. It looks like what they mean is that the battery pack is a stressed member of the frame, but that information is lost in the marketing gobbledeegook. Damon bikes do have Ohlins shocks, Brembo brakes and single rear swingarms.

Both the new HyperFighter Colossus and the HyperSport will come with Damon’s CoPilot—“a 360-degree advanced warning system that uses radar, cameras, and non-visual sensors to track the speed, direction, and velocity of up to 64 moving objects around the motorcycle for unparalleled situational awareness.” Both bikes will also get that transformational setup, Shift: “At the push of a button, patented electronic ergonomics allow riders to transform their riding position with adjustable handlebars position and a retractable windscreen to dramatically reduce wind resistance and increase long range comfort, all while in motion.”
The Damon website says the HyperFighter Colossus retails for a "subscription price" of $475 per month or $35,000 to buy, and that the bike can be reserved with a fully refundable deposit of $250. There is also a HyperFighter Unlimited 20 with a 20 kWh battery for $25,000 or $357 a month, and a HyperFighter Unlimited 15 with 15 kWh for $19,000 or $264 a month.

Damon claims to have $65 million in total funding, having announced December 8 that it had garnered $30 million in a Series B Funding round led by an entity called House of Lithium. A search for House of Lithium on Google shows a beachfront home in Newport Beach and a website showing a tattooed tough guy speeding about on an electric bicycle (not on a Damon). House of Lithium makes electric bicycles and looks to be led by a guy named "TJ," perhaps the guy with the tattoos and the beach house. So Damon Motors is getting help from a like-minded investor. Looking forward to riding one of these someday.

“It’s been a very busy Q4 for Damon, marked by massive momentum for the company, having secured an additional $30M in funding, global expansion into Europe, announcement of a 110,000 square-foot manufacturing facility in Surrey, British Columbia, Canada, to begin production in 2022; awarded 6 issued patents for its technologies, and surpassing a $45M milestone in orders for its flagship HyperSport motorcycle,” Damon said in a release.

World’s first pedal-powered electric motorcycle

eROCKIT electric motorcycle can be mistaken for a bicycle, bit unusual looking though. However, it is actually an electric motorcycle with a unique drivetrain that allows the vehicle to be driven as a bicycle as well as a motorcycle also, thanks to the pedals. It is the first pedal-powered electric motorcycle in the world, claims Andy Zurwehme, CEO of eROCKIT Systems GmbH.To get more news about high quality electric motorcycle, you can visit davincimotor.com official website.

Priced at 11,850 euro (Approximately ?9.88 lakh), the eROCKIT electric motorcycle is licensed as a light motorcycle in Europe under the L3e vehicle class.

The company claims the motorcycle is powered by a human hybrid technology with the rider at the centre of the entire power generation technology.In terms of design, the electric two-wheeler is built on high-strength aluminum and dons a retro look with features like an LED headlamp, digital instrument cluster, and a single rider seat. The battery is positioned in a manner that makes the motorcycle looks thin. The alloy wheels with disc brakes too come with the same minimalist approach that is visible across the entire body frame.

The company claims that it sources high-quality parts from across the world to make the motorcycle. “We source high-class parts from different countries. The battery is jointly developed by us and a Switzerland based company," said Zurwehme.

The most interesting part of this electric motorcycle is the pedal onboard powering a generator that measures the power output that goes into it. There is no throttle on the handlebar. This means if the rider pedals fast, the motorcycle will accelerate. It uses brake energy recuperation technology as well. Stopping pedaling means the bike will come to standstill.There is a 16 kW electric motor onboard that produces the required juice for the two-wheeler weighing only 120 kg. The German company claims the pedals can take the speed of the motorcycle to more than 80 kmph. Also, the 6.6 kWh battery pack is claimed to be capable of delivering a range of 120 km on a single charge.

The electric motorcycle has three different driving modes - Eco, Normal, and Sport. Each mode generates variable power output. The battery pack can be charged with the help of a regular 110 – 230 V socket, claims the company.

These Were The Top 5 Biggest Electric Motorcycle News Stories Of 2021

You may not have known it, but 2021 was a huge year for electric motorcycles. While Asia has traditionally been responsible for many of the electric motorcycles we’ve seen before, 2021 welcomed several new US entries in the market.To get more news about davincimotor, you can visit davincimotor.com official website.

We counted millions of views across our electric motorcycle coverage this year, and these are the top five stories that our readers voted on with their eyeballs.While SONDORS is better known for its successful electric bicycles (and somewhat less known for its presently less successful three-wheeled electric car), the company’s biggest launch of the year was definitely its first motorcycle.

The Metacycle was unveiled with impressive commuter-level specs, including an 80 mph (130 km/h) top speed and an 80 mile (130 km) range to match.The bike was originally destined to make deliveries by the end of this year, but several delays have pushed the new delivery estimate to the middle of next year.

We’ve also seen the Metacycle undergo a number of design changes, many of which were expected due to several of its fancier design features found on the concept model not being street legal.BMW unveiled a decidedly out there concept motorcycle back in September that had many of us scratching our heads.

Known as the Vison AMBY, it wasn’t a particularly fast model. Instead, it appears to be designed for urban commuters that want something a bit more powerful than an electric bicycle.

Its top speed of 60 km/h (37 mph) is rather slow compared to other entries in the light electric motorcycle class. The Vision AMBY’s lightweight design has it more closely competing with small electric trail bikes like a Sur Ron Light Bee, albeit BMW’s presumably street-legal design would offer a significant advantage over those other off-road-only alternatives.News that deliveries commenced for the company’s fat tire Volcon Grunt electric motorcycle brought in massive views from around the world. Perhaps that’s why Volcon is in the process of opening up a string of national and international dealers.

The Volcon Grunt is an off-road electric motorcycle designed for adventure and utility riding. Think: hunters, farmers, and various off-the-beaten-path explorers.For those that care less about the green aspect, the bike also requires almost zero maintenance, doesn’t leak oil all over your garage or barn, is easier to operate, and offers powerful low-end torque that only electric motorcycles can achieve.

The company opened local production facilities in Texas and is also working on developing multiple four-wheeled UTVs and a smaller electric motorcycle known as the Runt.

Volcon also celebrated its IPO earlier this year, with the stock climbing quickly before entering more of a rollercoaster trajectory not uncommon for new listings, especially in such a volatile market.The company had claimed nearly three years earlier that the bike would be based off the legendary BMW R71, just like the one seen in the classic Steve McQeen film The Great Escape.

The only problem is that the bike they rolled out didn’t quite mimic the inspiration. They even hyped the hell out of the big reveal; I got five different press releases alone ahead of the event.When Kawasaki announced that it would reveal three electric motorcycles next year, it must have really touched a nerve in the industry. Few pledges have brought in this much attention (and there have been plenty of e-moto promises to go around).

Part of the excitement might have been due to the fact that Kawasaki hasn’t launched any electric motorcycles yet.Sure, it has that prototype that has been hanging around the R&D department for years, but the company hasn’t seemed overly excited about sharing any updates on that front.

Brittany Charboneau set a marathon record on Sunday, and she did it dressed as her favorite Disney characters.To get more disney latest news, you can visit shine news official website.

Charboneau swept all four of the Walt Disney World Marathon weekend races, becoming the first person to top the 5K, 10K, half marathon and marathon finishers in the event’s 29-year history. That’s a combined 48.6 miles of running on consecutive days known as the “Dopey Challenge.”She completed the 26.2-mile marathon in 2 hours, 45 minutes, beating runners from all over the world who competed in Disney-themed costumes.

The 33-year-old aspiring Olympian from Denver said she decided to tackle the Disney races after suffering an injury in training and enduring a difficult run at the Boston Marathon in October. She wanted something fun to look forward to after a tough race.

“I feel amazing,” she said Sunday. “This was such a mental-win weekend for me. My goal was never to win all of these. My goal was to go out, wear costumes and have an amazing time.”She won the 5K dressed as Elsa from “Frozen” and the 10K as Bing Bong from “Inside Out.” For the half marathon, she led the pack as Joy, another character from “Inside Out.” She crossed the finish line for the full marathon as Cruella de Vil from the “101 Dalmatians.”

She faced another setback over the holidays, but it didn’t derail her victories. Charboneau said she tested positive for COVID-19 around Christmas despite being fully vaccinated and boosted, but she was cleared to run in time for the event.

Thousands of runners participated in the races, which feature courses winding through the Magic Kingdom, Disney’s Animal Kingdom, Disney’s Hollywood Studios and EPCOT. Runners were back on the track after the pandemic forced last year’s race to be held virtually.

Charboneau started running when she was 13, competing in cross country and track in high school and as a walk-on her junior and senior years at Colorado State University. It took her 15 years to win her first race. She finished first in the Chi Town Half Marathon in 2015 in Chicago.When she won a marathon in Denver in 2017, she quit her sales and marketing job and focused full time on running. In 2020, she finished 13th in the U.S. Olympic Marathon Trials, recording her personal best marathon time of 2 hours, 33 minutes.

The reason I wanted to do this is to remind people you can have big goals, but you can have fun with it,” she said.When she’s not running, Charboneau enjoys doing improv and sketch comedy. Her nickname is “The Funny Runner.”

In April Verizon said its top priority for 2021 is to prepare its network for its C-band spectrum, and it has begun installing C-band equipment from Ericsson and Samsung in its Ultra Wideband network — this is the company’s 5G network built mostly on mmWave spectrum in urban metros to date. But Verizon will boost Ultra Wideband with its new C-band spectrum as quickly as it can.To get more ericsson news, you can visit shine news official website.

Under this new $8.3 billion agreement, Verizon will deploy Ericsson's 5G solutions in its Ultra Wideband 5G network. Those solutions include Ericsson's Radio system portfolio, Massive MIMO, Ericsson Spectrum Sharing and Ericsson Cloud RAN.

In 2020, Verizon was the first communications service provider to receive a commercial 5G mmWave Street Macro base station from Ericsson's new factory in Lewisville, Texas. And that technology is also part of the new contract.
Ericsson said its solutions support both Verizon’s 5G standalone (SA) and non-standalone strategies. Both Ericsson and Verizon declined to comment on the status of Verizon’s SA core network.

A year ago, Verizon sounded as if it was about ready to shift to a 5G SA core. But then it began hedging on its timeline for that shift. AT&T also kept pushing out its timeline for its 5G SA core.

In a big announcement timed to coincide with Mobile World Congress 2021, AT&T recently said it was putting its 5G SA core on Microsoft Azure’s cloud. Dish Network has also said that it will run its core and RAN functions on a public cloud — AWS in its case.
The fifth generation (5G) of cellular networks has given us enhanced connectivity, low latency and greater bandwidth to usher in unparalleled opportunities for industries and society. It’s the platform that’s enabling Communication Service Providers (CPSs) to thrive and reach new milestones in an increasingly competitive ecosystem.

In 2021 more service providers launched and switched on 5G networks, but many are still waiting to see its true potential so they can grow their revenue with agility and speed. While every CSP’s strategy is unique, the evolution from 4G to 5G networks requires a transformative point of view. It’s not enough to just replicate a 4G network with newer technology. The build out of 5G is fundamentally different to how networks have traditionally been built with previous generations.

In order to get the full power of 5G and deliver on its promises, CSPs need to deploy and adopt 5G Core into their networks. Designed to handle all network demands, 5G Core performs many of the central operations in a mobile network. It’s where all the magic happens that will give CSPs the right capabilities to scale up or down their operations. Without a 5G Core, advanced 5G use cases such as multiplayer augmented reality gaming or virtual factory maintenance, will never materialize.
.Today, many CSPs begin their 5G journey with Non-Standalone (NSA) architecture, which uses existing 4G LTE radio access to support new 5G services. However, this approach has made it challenging to unlock 5G’s full potential because 4G network architecture is not able to withstand the expectations of mobile networks needed to meet the requirements from new applications emerging today with enterprise and industry business opportunities . While the technology still plays a critical role in our day-to-day lives, it does come with certain limitations for CSPs looking to step into the future they were promised with 5G.

Transitioning to a 5G Standalone (SA) network not only evolves the existing network in place today, but it also upgrades it so transformative elements can be introduced for new business opportunities or vertical needs. The technology allows service providers to simplify their planning and execution process, and connect to 5G quicker.

Undermount Sink

Undermount kitchen sinks are all the rage today. In these days of modernizing kitchen décor, these sinks have proven to be an invaluable asset. These sinks combine wonderful functionality with superb designs and styles to select from.

The Unique Functionality
Unlike other regular sinks found in kitchens, undermount kitchen sinks have a unique functionality of their own. The specialized function called flush fitting is one of the revolutionary aspects of such sinks. The sink is installed below the countertop portion. This helps lend the top of the kitchen a seamless and superb finish. With no unsightly joints and seams, the finish is professional and neat. The benefit of such a sink is that you just have to push the mess into your sink and never have to bother about it!

Various Options Available
There are many varieties of undermount kitchen sinks to choose from these days. Right from the kind of shapes available, to the type of materials these are made of to even the size needed, you are sure to find one that fits your unique needs. There are even varying depths of these sinks, according to your requirement. Right from stainless steel to ceramic, you can select these kinds of sinks, as per the décor of your kitchen.

Stainless Steel: A Favorite Choice
Amongst the various kinds of undermount kitchen sinks available these days, the stainless steel ones are more popular when compared to the ceramic varieties. The high resistance and durability quotient of stainless steel makes this a good choice. Stainless steel undermount sinks are resistant to scratches, dents, stains and lots more. The kinds of shapes available in such sinks include rectangular, oval, elongated and round as well.

Customized Ceramic Sinks
Most of the ceramic undermount kitchen sinks come in white finish. Such a finish is great because it can match any kind of kitchen décor. You can also order a custom made ceramic undermount sink to match the theme and design of the kitchen. You can also opt for butler sink styled sinks, which perfectly complement Victorian themed kitchens and homes. If you have a more rustic and countryside styled kitchen, then solid ceramic and rectangular shapes are more appropriate to suit such a décor.

Getting It Fitted
The expenses in fitting undermount kitchen sinks are not that much. These costs are slotted across diverse ranges so you can take your pick as per the budget. There are also sinks with hot and cold taps separately placed. There are even sinks with mixer options installed in them. There are also various draining and plugging systems found in such undermount kitchen sinks.

TORVA® Undermount Sinks are constructed with premium 16-gauge thick grade 304 stainless steel for durability and strength. Handcrafted brushed finish to prevent scratches for long-lasting use in your busy kitchen. Undermount installation provides you with much counter space, seamless transition and easy to clean corners make for a modern aesthetic and easier cleaning.

Sondors Metacycle is a highway-ready $5,000 electric motorcycle

Perhaps best known for its electric bicycles, Sondors announced the Metacycle on Thursday, its first fully electric motorcycle with an 80-mph top speed and a relatively affordable starting price of just $5,000.To get more news about DC100, you can visit davincimotor.com official website.

With the average price of a new car cresting $40,000 and many new electric motorcycles -- like the Harley-Davidson Livewire or the Zero SR/S -- coming in just as expensive, the Sondor Metacycle could find itself in an economical price-to-performance sweet spot, especially since the average American's commute is only about 16 miles per day.The Metacycle is an eye-catching, lightweight (about 200 pounds) electric motorcycle built around an aluminum frame. There's a gaping hole where you'd expect the fuel tank to be, emphasizing the bike's fuel-free performance. The removable 4.0-kilowatt-hour battery pack is positioned low on the belly of the frame, and is good for about 80 miles of cruising range. Charging can be handled at pretty much any 110-volt wall outlet in about 4 hours, but it can also be juiced more quickly at Level 2 (240-volt) public and residential charging stations.
image
Forward motivation (and, presumably, regenerative braking) is provided by a 14.5-kW (about 20 horsepower) hub motor that fills the rear wheel's negative space, providing a nominal 8 kW of thrust under most conditions. Top speed is estimated at 80 mph.

80 miles and 80 mph make for a nice poetic symmetry, but we're pretty sure you won't be able to hit the max range while riding at max speed. Expect actual performance to fall somewhere between those extremes. That's not a lot of range and really just enough top speed for the highway, but as a street-legal commuter for shorter around-town trips, the Metacycle's low starting price certainly makes it a little tempting.

The Metacycle has all of the rest of your street-legal motorcycle bits -- mirrors, headlamps, tail lights and so on. Up front is an inverted fork suspension and providing stopping power are a set of hydraulic brakes built by Brembo-subsidiary Bybre.We also reckon that hanging a heavy hub motor on the rear suspension has to have some effect on the Metacycle's handling, but the maintenance benefits of not having to deal with a chain and sprocket are certainly worth the tradeoff. The bike's modest performance goals mean that a small handling compromise is probably not a deal-breaker.

Don't expect a whole lot of tech at this price point, but with a clear-doored phone box that integrates a wireless charger, you can bring your own navigation on the road fairly easily.

Some may remember that, way back in 2017, Sondors attempted to crowdfund a $10,000 electric three-wheeled car. The Metacycle seems a bit less ambitious in scope, but more believable as a deliverable product. Expect deliveries of the Sondors Metacycle to begin in October.
