Recent progress on highly tough and stretchable polymer networks has highlighted the potential of wearable electronic devices and structural biomaterials such as cartilage. For some given applications, a combination of desirable mechanical properties including stiffness, strength, toughness, damping, fatigue resistance, and self-healing ability is required. However, integrating such a rigorous set of requirements imposes substantial complexity and difficulty in the design and fabrication of these polymer networks, and has rarely been realized. Here, we describe the construction of supramolecular polymer networks through an in situ copolymerization of acrylamide and functional monomers, which are dynamically complexed with the host molecule cucurbit[8]uril (CB[8]). High molecular weight, thus sufficient chain entanglement, combined with a small-amount dynamic CB[8]-mediated non-covalent crosslinking (2.5 mol%), yields extremely stretchable and tough supramolecular polymer networks, exhibiting remarkable self-healing capability at room temperature. These supramolecular polymer networks can be stretched more than 100× their original length and are able to lift objects 2000× their weight. The reversible association/dissociation of the host–guest complexes bestows the networks with remarkable energy dissipation capability, but also facile complete self-healing at room temperature. In addition to their outstanding mechanical properties, the networks are ionically conductive and transparent. The CB[8]-based supramolecular networks are synthetically accessible in large scale and exhibit outstanding mechanical properties. They could readily lead to the promising use as wearable and self-healable electronic devices, sensors and structural biomaterials.

Behavioral health providers looking for assistance when designing a performance management system now have a practical new resource at their disposal. CARF’s new publication, Performance Management Systems: A CARF Guide to Development and Use, helps organizations overcome limited expertise or resources to develop an outcomes measurement strategy that can be used to continuously improve service delivery. This guide is being offered to address several growing demands faced by behavioral health, substance abuse, and child and youth services providers: The effect of these demands means that collecting and sharing concrete evidence of organizational outcomes is becoming more critical to future success. But many organizations—particularly small- to mid-sized organizations with tight budgets—may run into difficulties getting their efforts off the ground. Common barriers to developing a useful performance management system include: Performance Management Systems: A CARF Guide to Development and Use (http://bookstore.carf.org/miva/merchant.mvc?Screen=PROD&Store_Code=CB&Product_Code=8617.53&Category_Code=General-Interest) addresses these barriers step-by-step to help organizations build a performance management system from the ground up. This begins with a broad, six-step template and progressively narrows into the specific components of data collection, measurement, analysis, and reporting. The guide contains grids, sample plans, and real-world examples of various indicators and measurement categories. The objective is to teach staff members how to link an organization’s efforts to its unique mission, goals, and funding requirements. Later chapters cover how to feed the collected data back into performance improvement efforts and address ethical and legal considerations. The guide references many online resources and other publications for easy access. The guide complements the CARF standards for performance measurement and management and performance improvement (Sections 1.M. and 1.N.) and includes an explanation of these standards and their intent. Because it often cites best-practice language from the standards, CARF recommends it be used in conjunction with the standards manual. The 2017 CARF standards manuals are available at http://www.carf.org/catalog.

Compared to on-ear and in-ear headphones, which are loved for their portability and generally low asking-price, over-ear headphones tend to be the best option to get if you're looking for the most immersive sound experience and don't mind a bigger set of headphones.Each kind of headphones has its perks, but people gravitate toward over-ear headphones for a few key reasons: their sound and comfort. Sure, in-ear headphones are great for throwing in your bag and breaking them out at the gym, but if you're looking for the best audio quality, over-ears are the way to go.If you're ready to bite the bullet on a set of expensive over-ear headphones, check out our list of the top-ranking options on TechRadar.Here's the Top 10 best over-ear headphones, ranked based on their price-vs-performance ratio:1. Oppo PM-3 2. Philips Fidelio X2 3. Beyerdynamic DT 1770 Pro 4. Audio-Technica ATH-MSR7 5. Sony MDR-ZX770BT 6. Sennheiser Momentum Wireless 7. Bose QuietComfort 35 8. Sony MDR-1000X 9. Status Audio CB-1 10. Bowers and Wilkins P9 SignatureQuestions? Concerns? Comments? Let us know in the comments below! Not sold on over-ears? Check out our guide to the best headphones overall. The Oppo PM-3's are a truly stunning pair of headphones. Make no mistake, we've reviewed a lot of headphones in the last 10 years but none have we become more fond of than the PM-3.They're equally comfortable being plugged into a headphone amp at home as they are commuting through the hustle and bustle of a big city, and they stand head and shoulders above rival products from bigger brands. We really can't recommend them highly enough, they're just amazing.Read the full review: Oppo PM-3 The Philips Fidelio X2's are a superb pair of headphones offering premium comfort and build quality with a sound that rivals even the most vaunted audiophile cans.Read the full review: Philips Fidelio X2 The Beyerdynamic DT 1770 Pros are a stunning pair of headphones. Are they expensive? To some no, to most yes; but for the sheer listening experience they deliver you'd be hard pressed to take them off after putting them on, even using them with portable HRA players and mobile phones.That said, they really do push the boundaries of what you can do with a dynamic driver. All praise to Beyerdynamic for putting together such a wonderful product.Read the full review: Beyerdynamic DT 1770 Pro It can be an expensive journey if you're looking for a set of headphones that sound as good as they look. That's why Audio-Technica's MSR7 are a sight (and sound) to behold if good sound and sharp build quality are priorities.These wired headphones retail for $250 (£199, AU$349), which isn't cheap, but we think you'll love these. Why? First off, the sound is incredibly well-balanced, pushing out crisp highs and deep lows without distortion. Second, the build materials and included goodies help to offset the cost.Read the full review: Audio-Technica ATH-MSR7 Sometimes, sacrifice isn't necessary. Sony's wizards stuffed a glut of features, cool design and a long-lasting battery into the MDR-ZX770BT, making this cheap set of wireless headphones a must-buy.Read the full review: Sony MDR-ZX770BT These no-holds-barred wireless headphones are oozing with positive qualities, but for many, they're almost prohibitively expensive. However, if you're an audio lover that can spare the expense, do not hesitate on this comfortable, hard-working set of headphones that will likely last for years.Read the full review: Sennheiser Momentum Wireless Bose has finally brought its fantastic noise-cancelling technology to a pair of wireless headphones and it's done so without any of the traditional drawbacks of wireless headphones. They sound great, and their battery life is long enough for all but the longest of flights.At $349.95 (£289.95 / AU pricing tbc) the QC35s sit firmly at the premium end of the spectrum, but if you want the best noise-cancelling headphones available right now then you can't get any better.Read the full review: Bose QuietComfort 35 The MDR-1000X are definitely the closest competitor to Bose's QuietComfort series I've ever had the pleasure of testing. Some high-end codecs (LDAC, AAC and aptX) help the 1000X sound even better than the QC35s, but ultimately the noise canceling is a bit less effective in Sony's pair of cans.What should drive your decision on whether to buy the MDR-1000X is your music player – if you're a Sony Xperia owner, you'd be hard-pressed to find a pair of headphones that sound as good as these with noise canceling tech built-in. Even if you're not, Sony's wares are still worth a listen – and maybe a purchase – if you aren't too put out by its $400 (£330 or AU$700) price tag.Read the full review: Sony MDR-1000X Over-ear headphones are often the most expensive headphones out there, but you don't have to spend a huge amount of money to get a pair of headphones that are comfortable enough to use for hours in your own home. The Status Audio CB-1 are the perfect example of this. They're bulky, so you won't want to use them on the bus, but the flip side of this is that they're an exceptionally comfortable pair of headphones. Some compromises have been made to get to this price point. There are certainly better sounding headphones on this list, and the build quality of the CB-1s isn't incredible, but if you're looking for a pair of budget over-ear headphones then the CB-1s are a great buy for the price. Read the full review: Status Audio CB-1 There's no getting around the fact that you're going to have to part ways with a lot of cash if you want to get your hands on the Bowers and Wilkins P9 Signature. However, if you want headphones with an absolutely astounding level of detailing, separation and balance, then there are few headphones out there that can match them. Using these headphones you'll discover new details in songs that you've listened to hundreds of times before. Yes they're bulky, they're expensive, and they don't have the modern conveniences of other headphones like noise-cancellation or wireless operation, but they're a premium pair of headphones from a premium manufacturer, and there are few others out there that challenge their level of audio quality. Read the full review: Bowers and Wilkins P9 Signature

Grow Condos, Inc.  (OTCQB: GRWC), a fully reporting, publicly traded company specialized in cannabis industry-related 'Condo' style real estate and turn-key grow facilities, today seeks to update investors on the recent acquisition closing of Lake Selmac Resort and RV Park, and the development of its evolving strategy in Lake Selma Oregon. After completing the acquisition, the company believes that the Smoke on the Water business presents a unique separate business model and being entirely ripe for a 'roll-up' acquisition play within the RV and Campground industry. Currently, the industry is entirely dominated by a 'Mom and Pop' type business with no tangible exit strategy. The company feels that these establishments can be purchased for 4 to 7 times EBITA, and then converted into culturally themed Cannabis Friendly destinations, creating a greater industry presence with a growing multiple of franchise themed locations. To Read this and more news for Grow Condos, please go to: http://marketnewsupdates.com/news/grwc.html Plans currently underway at the Lake Selma Resort include the development of a territorial conversion to the Native American theme, enhanced with TeePee style accommodations, Yoga and other spiritually enhancing activities throughout the day, and astrology and celestial centered nightly events. Other exclusive features include 'Theater Night on the Water', an event by which visitors will be able to experience movie viewing on a floating screen while enjoying a peaceful night on the lake. Created to capitalize on the country's continually growing level of recreational marijuana acceptance, 'Smoke on the Water' has launched its own roll-up development strategy, and started on a trajectory to duplicate its success. Chief Executive Officer, Wayne Zallen stated: "We believe that we have reached a pinnacle, since the acquisition of Southern Oregon's Lake Selmac Resort and RV Park, where this sector has established sufficient momentum to yield considerable value on its own." Management has concluded that this strategy will support the targeted growth of this division, advancing each sector with a singular focus on the development of a strong foothold in each niche market. Smoke on the Water is now relatively established, and prepared to capitalize on the fragmented RV industry in marijuana friendly territories." According to popular consensus, it has been revealed that relaxed marijuana laws are a powerful motivator for tourists, since technically it's not yet permissible to recreationally smoke in National and State Parks. This has opened a very lucrative niche opportunity for smaller, privately-owned properties that can offer the freedom of experiencing Oregon's strikingly beautiful landscape, while also enabling its visitors to enjoy Oregon's 420 Friendly privileges. Grow Condos, Inc. recently announced the successful acquisition of one of the territory's privately-owned nature rich vacation spots, Lake Selmac Resort and RV Park, situated in the picturesque heart of Southern Oregon. Located just 20 miles south of Grants Pass, Oregon and 2.5 miles east of the Redwood Highway (Hwy. 199) in Selma, Oregon, Lake Selmac Resort. The peaceful exclusive property currently facilitates fishing, swimming, boating, and in addition to RV parking, has tent camping and cabin locations established for accommodation.
