Dangling earrings have been the statement bauble of choice for a while now. Blame it on the advent of off-the-shoulder mania. Along with those skin-baring tops and dresses came the need to fill the space between — and what better way than with a pair of swingy jewels? From tassels to ball drops, the statement earring was the sleeper hit of Spring/Summer 2017 and with the holiday season here, the ultra long shoulder duster is here to party.

The fall runways were full of ornate, lengthy earrings that were glam and shoulder-grazing at the same time. At Isabel Marant, crystal fringe options and sculptural styles upped the ante on 80s redux. Miu Miu served up sparkly teardrop-shaped hoops that literally met their matches in the form of diamanté collar necklaces. Naturally, houses like Maison Margiela and Balenciaga went the edgier mismatched route, while Alberta Ferretti’s offerings were mystical and opulent, punctuated by pearls. It was a feast for the eyes — and ears, of course.

The Future Of Termite Infestation Treatments Looks Strange

The Future Of Termite Infestation Treatments Looks Strange

The business of termite eradication has undergone some changes over the course of its history. Toward the beginning of the last century, many people living in the United States were not even aware of what termites were. In fact, termites were thought to belong to another species of insect. For the longest time, termites were referred to as “white ants”. Some people living in foreign countries still refer to termites as white ants. Today in America, everybody knows that a termite infestation is probably the most damaging type of infestation that a homeowner can experience. But no matter the time period being considered, people have always relied on knowledgeable professionals for help with eradicating termite infestations. The business of pest control will probably always exist, but exterminators of the future will no doubt have some cool high tech anti-termite technology at their disposal. One anti-termite device that is nearing completion is referred to as the “Termibot”.

A company in Australia is currently perfecting a robot designed to kill insects, specifically termites. The robot travels on two belts like a tank, or that robot from Short Circuit. The Termibot is described as a “dual-tread thermal imaging robot”. The Termibot is built at a size that allows it to travel behind walls, and other hard-to-reach areas. The Termibot is outfitted with a “thermal camera” and “moisture sensors”. These two features collect data on termite infestations within a home. Not only that, but this robot can, apparently, eradicate termite infestations by using a probe to inject insecticides into termite nests.

At the moment, the Termibot is tethered to a remote control operator. But the company is hoping to develop a wireless version. However, it has been claimed that the company is struggling to perfect the wireless version of this termite-killing robot. In addition to eradicating termite infestations, company officials are claiming that similarly designed robots can be used for other important purposes. These purposes include, bomb disposal and search and rescue operations.

Do you think that devices like the “Termibot” will become practical for use by pest control professionals any time soon? Or is the belief that these robots will hit the market soon just a result of wishful thinking?

Rupert Murdoch calls allegations of sexual misconduct at Fox News 'largely political'

Rupert Murdoch

  • Rupert Murdoch called the series of sexual harassment allegations made against men at Fox News “largely political” in a recent interview.
  • Several prominent Fox News employees were ousted in recent years over sexual misconduct allegations, including former CEO Roger Ailes, and hosts Bill O’Reilly and Eric Bolling.

 

In an interview about the Disney-Fox deal with Sky News on Thursday, media mogul Rupert Murdoch called the series of sexual harassment allegations at Fox News in recent years “largely political.”

Several high-profile men at Fox News were ousted in the past two years after sexual misconduct allegations, including former Fox News CEO Roger Ailes, and hosts Bill O’Reilly and Eric Bolling.

“That’s all nonsense,” Murdoch said, when asked whether sexual harassment allegations had harmed Fox News. “There was a problem with our chief executive, sort of, over the years, outside incidents. Soon as we investigated it, it was out of the place in hours. Well, three or four days. And there’s been nothing else since then.”

“But that was largely political, because we’re conservative,” Murdoch continued. “Now, of course, all the liberals are going down the drain. NBC is in deep trouble. CBS, their stars.”

Murdoch, who currently is executive co-chairman of 21st Century Fox, did not go into further detail on NBC and CBS. For context, NBC fired “Today” host Matt Lauer in November after a series of sexual misconduct allegations were made against him; CBS fired Charlie Rose in November over sexual misconduct allegations. 

Murdoch’s comments on sexual misconduct at Fox News addressed only the allegations Ailes faced. He neglected to mention that O’Reilly and Bolling were also ousted over alleged sexual misconduct.

Watch the full interview over at Sky News.
