Growing up in the era of smartphones and social media, today’s kids have the world on a handheld screen. Yet they don’t often engage on environmental issues. Why? “We’ve never been told our opinions matter,” says Xiuhtezcatl Martinez (his first name is pronounced Shoe-tez-caht). The refrain he hears from grown-ups: “‘These issues should be left for adults.’” Martinez, who is half-Aztec, helps organize unified actions like protests and tree plantings for Earth Guardians, a nonprofit that encourages youngsters to stand up for the planet. Martinez rallied youth for the 2014 climate march in New York City and the Native Nations Rise march on Washington this March. At just 16, Martinez has addressed the United Nations five times and is one of the 21 kids suing the federal government over climate inaction. He has also talked climate on HBO’s Real Time with Bill Maher and in Teen Vogue, among other media outlets. Makes you wonder what the hell you were doing when you were in high school, huh? By the time he’s 26, Martinez would like to see a much better world. Ten years isn’t much time, though. This generation has to take action fast. “We’re not just the future,” he says. “We’re also here right now.” Meet all the fixers on this year’s Grist 50.


Receive press releases from Aspose Pty Ltd: By Email Apply Checksum Validation on Codabar & Enhanced Reading Code39Standard Barcode Using Aspose.BarCode for .NET 17.3.0 It allows developers to apply checksum validation on Codabar Barcode. The API now exposes the CodabarChecksumMode enumeration to specify the checksum mode. It also allows developers to get barcode text along with checksum value. This release also includes several enhancements, such as Process of reading GS1DataMatrix barcode, Process of reading Code39Standard barcode, Recognition of DutchKIX barcode in MaxBarCodes mode & processing of GS1DataMatrix barcode generation has been greatly improved. Lane Cove, Australia, April 22, 2017 --( The latest version of Aspose.BarCode for .NET 17.3.0 has been released. The major development in this release is the support to apply checksum validation on Codabar coded barcode. Functionality to get barcode text along with checksum value in a single call has also been incorporated in this release. The API allows developers to apply checksum validation on Codabar. The API now exposes the CodabarChecksumMode enumeration to specify the checksum mode. EnableChecksum property of the BarCodeBuilder class is needed to be set to TRUE before setting the checksum mode. Aspose.BarCode for .NET allows developers to get barcode text along with checksum value. Aspose.BarCode API now exposes an overload method GetCodeText of the BarCodeReader class to accomplish the task. This month’s release also includes several bug fixes that were reported by Aspose users in the previous release, such as Process of reading GS1DataMatrix barcode has been improved, Process of reading Code39Standard barcode has been improved, Recognition process of DutchKIX barcode in MaxBarCodes mode has been improved and processing of GS1DataMatrix barcode generation has been improved. Below is the list of new and improved features supported in this version. • Add checksum feature for Codabar • Barcode is not giving correct output • BarCode is not giving correct output when GS1DataMatrix barcode is supplied to read • Unable to recognize barcode of type Code39Standard from a TIFF image • Fake recognition of DutchKIX in MaxBarCodes mode • Generation GS1DataMatrix isn't correct Overview: Aspose.BarCode for .NET Aspose.BarCode is a .NET component for generation and recognition of Linear and 2D barcodes on all kinds of .NET applications. It supports WPF with 29+ Barcode symbologies like OneCode, QR, Aztec, MSI, EAN128, EAN14, SSCC18, Code128, Code39, Postnet, MarcoPDF417, Datamatrix, UPCA etc. Other features include barcode insertion in PDF, Word and Excel documents. Also take image output in BMP, GIF, JPEG, PNG and WMF formats. Users can also control image styles such as background color, bar color etc. More about Aspose.BarCode for .NET - Homepage of C# & VB.NET Barcode Component: http://www.aspose.com/products/barcode/net - Download of Aspose.BarCode for .NET: http://www.aspose.com/downloads/barcode/net - Online documentation of Aspose.BarCode for .NET: http://www.aspose.com/docs/display/barcodenet/Home Contact Information Aspose Pty Ltd Suite 163, 79 Longueville Road Lane Cove, NSW, 2066 Australia http://www.aspose.com/ sales@aspose.com Phone: 888.277.6734 Fax: 866.810.9465 Lane Cove, Australia, April 22, 2017 --( PR.com )-- What's New in this Release?The latest version of Aspose.BarCode for .NET 17.3.0 has been released.

A flashing strip can include a body and at least one reinforcing member. The flashing strip can include a viscoelastic body deformable by a manual force between at least a first configuration and a second configuration. The flashing strip can also include at least one reinforcing member being deformable by the manual force. The reinforcing member can be configured to maintain a first shape of the body when the body is in the first configuration and when the manual force is not applied to the body and can be configured to maintain a second shape of the body when the body is in the second configuration and when the manual force is not applied to the body.

A slide-top tent retrofit system for converting a frame tent to a slide-top tent is described. In some embodiments, the system comprises a retrofit end crown fitting that can attach to an original crown fitting using an original attachment means. In some embodiments this retrofit end crown fitting comprises a sliding channel and attaches to retrofit rafter beams, also comprising a sliding channel, which replace original rafter beams. The retrofit rafter beams can also attach to retrofit side eave fittings, which replace original side eave fittings. In larger tents comprising one or more original mid crown fittings, retrofit mid crown fittings can replace the original fittings and attach to retrofit rafter beams. In one embodiment, the retrofit end crown fitting attaches to the original end crown fitting using a pin and hole attachment system.


A surface relief structure includes a recording medium configured to be structurally modified when exposed to interfering and non-interfering portions of radiation beams, the structurally modified recording medium including, when viewed in a two-dimensional cross-section along one of the axes of the recording medium a plurality of equally spaced steps of fine-sized periodicity superimposed upon a plurality of deep depressions of substantially coarse-sized periodicity. The structurally modified recording medium is configured to produce in reflection single and multiple colors in a broad spectral range when illuminated by a source of light.


Disclosed is a sapphire single crystal growing apparatus using the Kyropoulos method, and more particularly, is a Kyropoulos sapphire single crystal growing apparatus using an elliptic crucible, which can increase the recovery rate by the elliptic crucible and anisotropic heating.
