What is your level of stick-to-itiveness?

little complicated. You need to find the weight of the solids from a material safety data sheet or contact the manufacturer of the coating for this information. It’s usually between 20 and 40 percent, with the rest being solvent that evaporates.

Transfer efficiency became an important measurement when HVLP spray guns were introduced in the early 1980s because it defines the purpose of HVLP — to produce a soft spray that bounces back much less than the spray from high-pressure conventional guns.

It’s bounce-back, not overspray, that is important. Bounce-back is the amount of solids and solvent that bounces off

WE HAVENT HAD THIS MUCH FUN IN A LONG TIME. THANKS JINRI PARK.

Two words: Nongshim noodles.

This is not an endorsement. We’re just trying to junk a cliche by substituting something else. And here’s how the old trick goes: we find a woman from another country, of some exotic mix or ethnicity, and we scramble for a kind of food or drink so obviously from their place of origin as metaphor for what they are. So Russian women are like vodka. Korean women are—forgive us for even thinking we were so clever—hotter than kimchi.

So no, Jinri Park is not fermented cabbage. She is Nongshim noodles, those flaming packs of processed ramen

The fast and the curious

International acclaim and only 25 years old, Jamey Price started his rise to fame as an automotive photographer in May 2011: «It was a NASCAR truck race where I was being paid to cover Kimi Raikkonen, the 2007 F1 World Champion, who was running in his first stock car race,» he says. «I’m very early in my career in the grand scheme of things. I grew up just loving car racing — I’m a very passionate fan. If I’m not at a race, I’m certainly watching one on TV.»

Getting the WOW!

Jamey’s WOW! image was taken during Formula One’s

Red-Hot Mama

The Biggest Loser host Alison Sweeney loves a good challenge. I Iere, the actress, director, writer (her first novel comes out this month), and mother of two shares her tips for turning dreams into reality.

WHAT A DIFFERENCE A YEAR MAKES. When Alison Sweeney did her first shoot for SHAPE in early 2012, she had never posed for a magazine cover in a bikini. “I was so nervous about showing my body,” recalls Ali, who had struggled with her weight since she began appearing on the daytime soap Days of Our Lives at 16. Despite having successfully lost 30 pounds

Q Acoustics Concept 20

£350

They look similar to the 2020is opposite, but the Concept 20s have great new-tech under their skin.

Concept 20 stands

We don’t always recommend buying stands from the same people who built the speaker, but not only are the Concept 20 stands (£200 a pair) gorgeous, they also put the speakers at the right height (at least for our listening position) and firm up the delivery impressively well. Also consider biwiring — it makes the sound more open and transparent.

We love the Q Acoustic 2020i speakers. So much so that we gave them an Award in 2012. But

Preface to the revised edition

It was with some trepidation that I accepted the task of revising Ernest Joyce’s work, for in the eyes of so many it had become the woodworker’s bible, helping countless people in their search for woodworking knowledge and their own personal search for excellence. This reluctance to tamper with the bible, which was strong, and shared by many other people, was tempered by the knowledge that much had changed in the world of craft furniture since 1970 when this work was first published— changes that Ernest Joyce himself would well have approved. Writing as he did in the late sixties,

ORANGEY BOOM

In 1973 BMW celebrated the 50th anniversary of its boxer twin with its most audacious road bike ever — the R90S. Sporty at heart and with the Z1 in its sights this crazy kraut took on the Japanese and won.

It’s strange how history is sometimes tainted with hyperbole.

The arrival of the Honda CB750 in 1969 turned motorcycling on its head. Or did it?

On its launch it in fact had an inferior power-to-weight ratio, and was only slightly faster than the Norton Commando released a year earlier.

Even Kawasaki’s equally seminal Z1 offered more in terms of flash

Tester’s notes

Skids. Drifts. Oversteer. Churlish, childish stuff that is inefficient, irresponsible, wears through tyres and slows cars down. All true. A colleague came back to the office the other day and reported that an industry test driver had told him one of the “problems” with car journalists is their obsession with going sideways. True, too, perhaps.

This driver, and the company he works for, likes cars that go fast. Flipping fast. If there’s too much lateral slip, too much looking out of the side window, too much smoking of tyre, with knuckles visible through the windscreen to amply demonstrate

Sham marriage thing is definitely bad and even criminal offenses, so alien, enclosing a marriage with the sole aim to get the right to live here, not only will have to leave Germany, but also — as well as his «spouse» — pay a sensitive money penalty. All this trouble, of course, honored and the like, the only problem is that the consulates, as well as the Office for Foreigners in every second case perceive the presence of a marriage and provide spouses to prove the contrary, that it is very difficult to do, if the husband or wife is not in Germany. In this case, the consulate in the case of family reunification after interviewing the spouses simply stated — and in most cases unfounded — that there was a suspicion of a marriage of convenience, so sorry, no reunification. Spouses can do is file a lawsuit in court, with extremely competent Administrative Court of Berlin that such things are simply folds «in a pile» and does not take any decisions. Here are unhappy newlyweds in a stupid situation where marriage seems to be imprisoned just have to live separately. Well, as they say, do? In one of the cases that led our Office to do had the following: In the case of his wife was a German citizen, my husband was a Ukrainian, with previously are in Germany illegally and under a false name, why he was 5 years ago and was hence expelled, namely deported. After the marriage, and the application for family reunification has a real name case dragged on for over a year, why his wife and turned to a lawyer, here in Germany, in order to expedite the processing. Finally, after having been carried out a survey, with the result that the Consulate any «suspicion that the marriage», more and found that the newly-spouse, it turns out, the person is not entirely unblemished, and in particular was in Germany with false documents, They refused to reunite, so that it was necessary to appeal against the refusal. Unfortunately, in this case it turned out to be a lawyer, to put it mildly, a strange man, it is not processed, and taken from klietnov money to pay expenses incurred in the deportation of the spouse left himself, rather than to transfer them to the ministry. In addition, he assured people that it already «is in the court,» and even in the fact that the court has already taken place, but that’s the solution yet, etc. The case is already more than two in the flight of «processing», when some pissed man took and bought turputevku Poland and drove to visit his wife in Germany to understand that and saved, it can be said family. After treatment of spouses in our chancellery we have requested materials to the Ausländerbehörde, and found that no court was not, like everything else, because the court is not accessed, the money used to repay the costs of deportation of the Office not received, and generally for a year absolutely nothing was done. The suspicion is based on a marriage of meterialy case, especially survey spouses were unfounded, even Ausländerbehörde is not denied. When considering the fact that all this has lasted for no more than two years of foundation, and to contend with long Ausländerbehörde and thus may not delay the case, we will in a few weeks agreed with the agency that her husband will give the so-called Vorabzustimmung he will leave and then will drive to the «proper» visa will remain at last in Germany with his family. All this

— I.e. All processing is done with the exit and entry — took about two months and the couple have been living together, even without redemption costs of deportation.

They, of course, will have to pay, there’s nothing you can do, you can just pay gradually. Return the money, «prikarmanennyh ‘previous attorney, we have now to sue, but, of course, and it can be solved in the near future. In this case, it was also a feature that the wife receives public assistance, which is usually also an obstacle to family reunification, although it is against the law when it
