Portland-Based “Puncture” Magazine Upped the Game for Punk Rock Zines. A New Anthology Shows How.

On the outside, the first issues of Puncture looked like the dozens of other roughly constructed zines covering punk and post-punk culture in the 1980s: hand-folded and stapled with cut-and-paste cover art.

What set it apart was the content on the inside. The writing was wise and witty, covering artists ignored by most other underground papers—the Virgin Prunes, Negativland, Toiling Midgets—and included thoughtful writing on literature and film. As it became a proper magazine with glossy covers, eventually relocating from San Francisco to Portland, and opened its ears to embrace hip-hop, jazz and the avant-garde, Puncture remained on the bleeding edge. It was the first to write about Guided By Voices, Jeff Buckley, and Neutral Milk Hotel in any meaningful way, and even published an early excerpt of David Foster Wallace’s Infinite Jest before the novel became a phenomenon.

The magazine folded in 2000 when founder Katherine Spielmann and fellow

Tesla’s Elon Musk unveils new battery technology that will see more affordable cars

TESLA IS WORKING on new battery technology that CEO Elon Musk says will enable the company within the next three years to make sleeker, more affordable cars that can travel dramatically longer distances on a single charge.

But the battery breakthroughs that the entrepreneur unveiled yesterday at a highly anticipated event did not impress investors.

They were hoping Tesla’s technology would mark an even bigger leap forward and propel the company’s soaring stock to even greater heights.

Tesla’s shares shed more than 6% in extended trading after Musk’s presentation.

That deepened a downturn that began during yesterday’s regular trading session as investors began to brace for a potential letdown.

Musk raised those worries with a series of tweets on Monday warning that Tesla’s new battery technology might not be ready for high-volume production until 2022.

He reiterated that timetable during yesterday’s showcase and then added it might take up to

Technology Bolsters On-Demand Teacher Training

In the past, she says, she would go into the classroom, watch the instructor teach, and then “look for a time when we could go over the lesson.” But “sometimes that didn’t happen until the following week,” Shirey says.

The delayed feedback was far from ideal. “It’s much more effective when you can say in the moment, ‘Here are some things you can do better,’” she says.

Now, Shirey uses a tablet mounted on a motorized Swivl base that automatically tracks a teacher moving around the classroom. From a computer in her office, or through any device with an internet connection, Shirey can observe a teacher over a live Zoom video feed and provide live feedback through a Bluetooth-equipped headset.

“The teachers love it,” she says. “The students barely notice what we’re doing because I’m not disrupting the class with my presence, and the coaching is just a lot more

Nuovaluce Beauty Device Recognized as a Go-To Health and Beauty Device in Forbes Magazine

Founded by beauty entrepreneur Angelo De Simone, Nuovaluce was launched in 2017. The article recognizes the device’s most unique characteristic – not requiring the use of conductive gel— as something other microcurrent devices say is required. It was held as common industry knowledge that conductive gel was needed for devices that utilized micro-current technology. After years of research, De Simone found that this was not true.

The author mentions Nuovaluce’s ability to simplify her beauty routine, noting that “…it yields visible results quickly…”. She did not need any extra product to use it, which reduces operating costs over the long run—making it a win-win.

Other devices recognized in the article include BeautyBio’s Cryo Dual Roller, a professional-grade, stainless steel cryo skin icing roller for the face, eyes and body, as well as Moda One, a smart hair dryer by Tineco.

In the midst of the pandemic, Nuovaluce offers a
