Functionality vs Novelty: Why you Shouldn't use your iPhone as a Scale.
The idea that an iPhone could be used as an accurate scale followed quickly on the heels of the release of the new iPhone 6s, due to the new pressure-sensitive hardware included with the phone.
Tips for Properly Using and Storing Weights
When working with weights, accuracy is key. However, many people underestimate how delicate weights really are. If they are mistreated or stored improperly, their mass changes.
The 10 Least Effective Workouts
When it comes to exercise, there are some points that are widely known. Most people head into a workout routine knowing they need to work on different parts of their bodies, rest their bodies between training days, and drink a lot of water. However, what about the routine itself? What types of exercises are most effective, and which are more likely to harm the body? If you are unsure about what to watch out for with dangerous routines, then follow these few tips on what you should avoid to keep your body safe and healthy.

Definitive List of Airline Safety Procedures
When it comes to flying, things have changed a lot over the last decade. Things that were fine to carry with you a few years ago are now banned, plus there are more safety checks that people have to keep in mind on a daily basis. If you have not traveled recently by air, then you may not be aware of what safety procedures to expect. Here's a list of what you can expect the next time you head to an airport, so make sure to include the extra time in your travel plans.

7 Facts the Weight Loss Industry Doens't Want you to Know
When it comes to weight loss, there are some items that most companies within the weight loss industry try and keep hidden from you. If consumers knew about all of the secrets that are being kept from dieters, they would spend far more time at home getting healthy than they would at the gym or buying health products. Torbal recognizes the growing health initiative and is here to help. We've listed some of the biggest secrets that consumers should know before they spend another dollar on unnecessary items.
Moisture Analysis in Food Production
Water is vital to sustaining life. In fact, every living organism that we know of requires sufficient water to thrive. Destructive bacteria and enzymes, however, also require sufficient water to thrive. Out of balance, too much water content multiplies the microorganisms that hasten decay. For this reason, moisture analysis becomes critical in food production. At least three things are making food processing and moisture control even more important.
1. A reliance on speed and convenience.
As our social norms lean more toward prioritization of speed and convenience, our processed and packaged foods have become more and more popular. Life is fast and full, and we have less time to build our meals from scratch. Food processing is an increasingly large industry.
Five Ways Stainless Steel Floor Scales Pay for Themselves
One area in industry that should never be overlooked relates to the long term benefits of quality equipment. For example, many manufacturers require scales to account for the proper weight of items. It is much more practical to go with a stainless steel floor scales that can provide ruggedness rather than a flimsy, cheap scale. Of course, depending on the industrial or commercial application, stainless steel floor scales can actually pay for themselves over time. Here are five items to consider when weighing the investment versus payoff.
Whether the need for a scale is in a liquid heavy environment, a dry material location, or a forklift traffic area nothing answers the bell more than a piece of equipment designed to handle whatever operators throw its way. Stainless steel offers a heavy duty alternative to traditional and less expensive metals and can easily handle whatever task is demanded.
Analytical Balances: When and How to Use Them
Laboratories and businesses looking to make precision and minute measurements of mass need to have analytical balances. These balances are designed specifically for measuring minute masses less than a milligram precisely. Using these devices can take some time to learn the basics, but once understood, they become very easy to understand.
When to use an Analytical Balance
An analytical balance is to be used in conditions where knowing a precise mass is necessary. Knowing these precise measurements could be to ensure a safe product, reducing byproducts, or making a controlled budget of resources. An analytical balance will be able to measure the correct amounts of reagents and how much product was produced. Typically these balances can measure every 0.1 mg up to 200 g. Using these scales is similar but somewhat different than others.
Waterproof Scales are Not Just for Liquid Process Areas
At first glance the term waterproof scale brings to mind environments filled with liquids that can overflow onto the device. While that scenario is often true regardless of the process area, dry environments can also necessitate waterproof scales. Many times, the material being weighed can spill onto the scale surface, and smaller granular material can render the air dusty and settle on the scale display.
Whether the scale in question is being used to package a final product or stage a raw material, the operator is not going to think twice before unleashing a water hose to clean the piece of equipment. Proper industrial hygiene is essential to workplace safety, which means that the equipment present in the production area needs to withstand the rigorous demands of production and cleanup.
Jewelry Scales Ensure Accurate Sales
Jewelry scales often aren't the focus of the jewelry industry. After all, who cares about a simple scale when you have precious metals and gemstones all around you? The humble jewelry scale certainly can take a backseat to the glamor, but it shouldn't. In reality, the jewelry scale is one of the most important aspects of the jewelry industry.
Consider, for example, that your humble, insignificant-looking jewelry scale can be the difference between a great transaction and losing money. With a substance as precious as gold, even a few tenths of an ounce can represent a lot of money. For that reason, you have to make sure that when you're weighing jewelry, your scale is accurate.
