Hand dryers v paper towels: the surprisingly dirty fight for the right to dry your hands

For a century, the humble paper towel has dominated public toilets. But a new generation of hand dryers has sparked a war for loo supremacy.

By Samanth Subramanian

In the summer of 2005, a Chicago marketing consultant named George Campbell received a tantalising call from a headhunter. Was he open to an interview at Dyson? The company was secretively preparing to launch a new appliance, and it needed a sales strategy for the US: that was all the headhunter would divulge. Campbell was excited; he saw Dyson as aa company with the iconic quality of Apple, and an ability to take a basic product like a vacuum cleaner and make an 80% margin on ita.

He went along to Dysonas office, a factory-like space with lofty ceilings and timber beams next to the Chicago river. In his first few conversations, he recalled, they wouldnat even reveal what the product was. Finally, Campbell was told in strict confidence: it was a hand dryer. And head thought he was joining Dyson for the glamour. aMy heart dropped to my stomach.a

In crowded cities, poorer neighbourhoods often experience the most noise pollution. But advances in architecture and sound engineering could offer solutions

The air on Mint Street is heavy with the clang and clatter of the 08:15 to Liverpool Street station. The east London estate is squeezed into a small space beside a curved train line, and the carriages squeal as they round the bend. All conversations freeze until the racket is over, then a few words are passed between neighbours before the next train comes.

Stand on the pavement and the sound is thunderous, but step inside one of the flats and you can suddenly hear yourself think. A double-glazed indoor balcony full of potted plants buffers the noise to nothingness.

Ever since the Brexit vote in June 2016, many of us pro-Europeans have had to live with a dilemma. On the one hand, we regarded the vote to leave the European Union as a disaster for our country.

Dare to declare capitalism dead a before it takes us all down with it | George Monbiot
Date: Thu, 25 Apr 2019 05:00:53 GMT
From https:

The economic system is incompatible with the survival of life on Earth. It is time to design a new one

For most of my adult life Iave railed against acorporate capitalisma, aconsumer capitalisma and acrony capitalisma. It took me a long time to see that the problem is not the adjective but the noun. While some people have rejected capitalism gladly and swiftly, Iave done so slowly and reluctantly. Part of the reason was that I could see no clear alternative: unlike some anti-capitalists, I have never been an enthusiast for state communism. I was also inhibited by its religious status. To say acapitalism is failinga in the 21st century is like saying aGod is deada in the 19th: it is secular blasphemy. It requires a degree of self-confidence I did not possess.

But as Iave grown older, Iave come to recognise two things. First, that it is the system, rather than any variant of the system, that drives us inexorably towards disaster. Second, that you do not have to produce a definitive alternative to say that capitalism is failing. The statement stands in its own right. But it also demands another, and different, effort to develop a new system.

Black Car Burning by Helen Mort review a in the shadow of Hillsborough
Date: Thu, 25 Apr 2019 06:30:42 GMT
From https:

This debut novel from the award-winning poet is a love letter to Sheffield and the landscape that surrounds it

On 15 April 1989, a crush on the dangerously overcrowded terraces at Sheffieldas Hillsborough football stadium at the start of the FA Cup semi-final between Liverpool and Nottingham Forest led to the deaths of 96 people, the worst disaster in British sporting history. Thirty years since the catastrophe, the trial of the former police superintendent in charge of the match recently ended with the jury failing to reach a verdict on the charge of manslaughter, although the safety officer in charge that day was convicted of breaching legal duty.

Hillsborough is the weeping sore at the centre of Helen Mortas debut novel Black Car Burning, which is also a love letter to her home city of Sheffield and to the climbing community of the Peak District that surrounds it. Mort, an award-winning poet whose 2013 debut collection Division Street contained a poem about the 1984-85 minersa strike, is also a climber: her second collection No Map Could Show Them takes the radical female mountaineers of the 19th and early 20th century as its theme. Politics and landscape are fiercely intertwined in the history of South Yorkshire, and Mort now demonstrates that she can write as assuredly on both subjects in novel form as in her poetry.

Making your own bacon and salt beef gives you the chance to avoid the nitrates and nitrites of the industrially processed product a but can you keep it pink?

I discovered domestic curing in an absolutely stunning book, Salt, Sugar, Smoke by Diana Henry, where thereas a recipe for salt beef without which my adult life would have been immeasurably poorer. The beauty of home-curing is twofold. For some reason, it is off-the-scale delicious. Better still, you end up with tons of meat, more than you could ever justify buying in a shop.

But cured meats are steadily becoming infamous as a lurking cancer risk on the scale of tobacco. Meat, generally, wreaks havoc upon your colon (red meat is associated with cancer risk if you eat it in large amounts), and a meta-study in 2011 found that cured meats could increase your risk of colon cancer even if you just like the occasional slice of ham. And slices of ham, like cloves of garlic, are almost never consumed in ones. There is also evidence of a breast cancer risk. The World Health Organization places bacon in the same category as asbestos, alcohol and arsenic.

Derek needs to find a laptop with Windows 10 Homeas device encryption to keep his data safe

I want to buy a new Windows 10 laptop for home use, and I want one with device encryption capability, so that the boot drive is encrypted. Until recently, this has only been possible with Windows Professional editions using BitLocker. I now see that if a laptop has the right specification, all versions of Windows 10 can have device encryption turned on.

The problem is that itas difficult, if not impossible, to get information from mainstream laptop vendors as to whether a specific model supports device encryption. Recent MacBooks are capable of using FileVault and Apple spells out which models support it, so why is this information so hard to find for Windows laptops? Derek

Iam glad you asked because youare right: thereas a shocking lack of information about device encryption on laptops, and this applies to Microsoft, to PC manufacturers, and to retailers. Itas also something that laptop PC reviewers rarely seem to mention, which makes it hard, if not impossible, to tell how many laptops are compatible with Windows 10as device encryption.

Pristine forests are vital for climate and wildlife but trend of losses is rising, data shows

Millions of hectares of pristine tropical rainforest were destroyed in 2018, according to satellite analysis, with beef, chocolate and palm oil among the main causes.

The forests store huge amounts of carbon and are teeming with wildlife, making their protection critical to stopping runaway climate change and halting a sixth mass extinction. But deforestation is still on an upward trend, the researchers said. Although 2018 losses were lower than in 2016 and 2017, when dry conditions led to large fires, last year was the next worst since 2002, when such records began.

In crowded cities, poorer neighbourhoods often experience the most noise pollution. But advances in architecture and sound engineering could offer solutions

The air on Mint Street is heavy with the clang and clatter of the 08:15 to Liverpool Street station. The east London estate is squeezed into a small space beside a curved train line, and the carriages squeal as they round the bend. All conversations freeze until the racket is over, then a few words are passed between neighbours before the next train comes.

Stand on the pavement and the sound is thunderous, but step inside one of the flats and you can suddenly hear yourself think. A double-glazed indoor balcony full of potted plants buffers the noise to nothingness.

Moore hits the high notes opposite Ken Watanabe in this soapy adaptation of Ann Patchettas bestselling novel

Julianne Moore could put a toothpaste advert into awards contention with the inner turmoil she conveys with her magnificent eyes. She certainly lifts her scenes in this slushy heavy on the romance adaptation of Ann Pratchettas novel about a world-famous opera singer falling in love with a Japanese billionaire during a hostage crisis. If the book is a work of elegant literary fiction, here we have the movie equivalent of a bumper airport paperback: always watchable and often soapy, with a handful of unintentional giggly bits.

Moore is Roxanne Coss, an American lyric soprano paid silly money by the government of a nameless Latin American country to perform at a soiree to impress electronics boss Mr Hosokawa (Ken Watanabe). When leftist guerrillas waving machine guns storm the party, their target is the countryas president, but he stayed home to watch his favourite TV soap opera so the hijackers take the guests hostage instead.
