As those historic pictures were beamed back to Earth, millions of us sat transfixed to our television screens as we watched Neil Armstrong taking a small step for man and a giant leap for mankind, and indeed for womankind. It’s a reminder for us all that giant leaps often start with small steps. This year, we marked another important anniversary, D-Day. On 6th June…

    How to Change the Contacts on ABB A-Line 95 and 115 Series of Contactors

    Welcome To G-TV! Today I will be showing how to change the contacts on the ABB A line 95 and 115 series of contactors. I will be using the A 95 series for this demonstration since the A 95 and A 115 use similar contacts and can be replaced using the same methods. Prior to installation, I will need to remove any auxiliary contacts that may hinder the installation of the contacts. For replacing the contacts, I will need to have a slotted screwdriver, as well as a T15 and T20 size Torx screwdriver. With the T15 Torx screwdriver, I can remove the front cover by unfastening the four screws…

    News from an alternate universe: Climate Change

    NARRATOR: Scientists have been warning us for years about our changing climate. SCIENTIST: Rising temperaturs, sea level change, iceburgs melting. But warnings are one thing. Social and political change is quite another. Has science managed to convince us? It turns out, the answer is yes. Yes big time. Overwhelming evidence, both at the chemical and atmospheric levels show that man-made CO2 is directly affecting climate conditions. And when we told politicians and the general public, they believed us immediately. Look, when I turned on my TV and saw some scientist spoutin’ off about how some kind of invisible gas is causing something called “global warming” I was like, thank you!…

    Spotting Fake News

    [MUSIC] As information becomes more available to our students and adults I consistently hear from some of our teachers that they think that computers are going to take over their job one day. In fact some think that their jobs are being taken over by computers now. Nothing could be further from the truth. Nothing. In fact, the case is quite actually the opposite. We now need teachers more than ever to help weed out all of the inaccurate information that our students read on the internet, particularly fake news. An MIT study shows that younger people are more likely now to remember where they can find facts online rather…

    Cord cutting update: 18 months without cable TV!

    – Its been about 18 months or so since I made the biggest decision of my life. Now that I’m almost 40. Oh that’s old! I killed cable TV. Okay cable TV still exists, I just don’t have it anymore. So the simple idea more than a year ago was just to see if what we were watching was really worth what we were paying. So 18 months later, where do we stand? How’s it working? And more important how much money are we spending? Let’s go take a look. (upbeat R&B music) So first a caveat. Okay all of this I’m about to say applies to me. You might…
