About half of the world’s population is comprised of women: they truly help make the world go ‘round. Whether she’s a mother caring for her children, a wife who loves her spouse, or a woman working to support her extended family, they are all important people in our lives.
Today, on Women’s Health & Fitness Day, how can women treat their bodies better?
A tape measure can solve basically one problem….How long is the item? But a pipe diameter tape measure can solve a short list of problems for you.
What is the outside diameter (OD) of that pipeline, without having to cut into it. You don’t even have to divide by pi.
What is the diameter of a tree trunk.
What is the accurate diameter of a tire.
What is the diameter of a beach ball, when fully inflated.
Even if the pipe is distorted, and the cross sectional diameter would be different in different directions, you can do it. The pipe diameter tape measure can tell you what the diameter would be, if it weren’t distorted. That’s because the measurement is based on the circumference. The tape automatically divides by pi (3.14159) for you.
We are already halfway through the week, but have you thought about how hard America’s farmers and ranchers are working to provide for their communities and the nation as a whole? This week is Farm Safety & Health Week- a perfect time to give thanks to our hard-working agriculturists.
Did you know…
2017 Census of Agriculture says there are 3.4 million agricultural producers in America
It’s the most dangerous work sector in America (23.4 deaths per 100,000)
Our farmers and ranchers truly are essential workers
Police officers are getting a lot of attention in the media in recent months. But you know who usually falls by the wayside? Security officers. Today is Security Officer Appreciation Week- a week for these people to shine.
How can we thank them this week?
Say a quick “thank-you” when you see one around town or at an event
Gift them with a Maglite engraved with the hashtag #SecurityOfficerAppreciationWeek
The burning questions is “Why does it matter”. If you ask an architect, he or she will tell you that an architect scale ruler is vital to their daily business. They would not be able to function without these rulers.
What is an architect scale ruler? It is a special ruler that is marked in special scales that correspond to the scale of the drawing. If the drawing is done in 1″ = 1 foot, then each inch on the correct scale will represent one foot in the drawing. If the drawing is done in 1/4″ = 1 foot, then each quarter inch on the 1/4 scale corresponds to 1 foot in the drawing. On this particular scale, each 1/4 inch is marked 1,2,3,4,5,6 etc. So that the “4 marking number” is one inch from the zero mark. Simple, so far. But each of these rulers has several scales, so you don’t have to have multiple rulers in your pocket. Other scales can be 1/8, 1/16, 1/3, 3/16 and so forth. The trick of this business is to be able to choose the correct scale for each drawing you are working on. If you are reading a highway map which is drawn to 1/4″ = 1 mile, you would use the 1/4 scale. If you are with me up to this point, you could become an architect!
This month of September contains many American holidays that the average person doesn’t even hear about. Sure, this week we celebrated Labor Day, but did you know that Uncle Sam Day is on Sunday the 13th, and the birthday of the Air Force is next Friday the 18th? In fact, the entire month of September is also dubbed Americana Month.
What better way to celebrate at your office than to pass out promotional Maglites with the American flag printed on them?
The true meaning of Labor Day is usually overlooked. Too often this holiday is seen as the last weekend of summer: a time for BBQ’s, picnics, boating, or one last beach vacation before the summer comes to an end.
Did you know..
Labor Day is always the first Monday in September
Celebrates America’s laborers and their contributions to developing our country
It became a federal holiday in 1894
Your employees would appreciate you celebrating their hard work by giving them any of these promotional maglights:
