“Our plunger bearings are longer than our competition, with a spiral groove allowing the plunger to be immersed in a bath of oil,” he said, “Our waterjet piston is designed with a hydraulic T-seal with wear rings, giving it an extended life up to 12,000 hours vs. 2,000 hours. We use a screwless, low-pressure poppet so no Loctite thread locker is required. Our customers don’t have to worry about a failed, loose or dropped screw damaging the plunger. We designed our pumps with threadless high-pressure cylinders to eliminate the issue of cracked, struck, misaligned, or stripped threads.

“This business plants seeds in our heads, pitting us against each other when it shouldn’t be like that. Some people in the business like to play chess with others’ emotions. We are all human, we all have feelings, and shouldn’t be put in competition with one another. Yes, there are rivalries, but at the end of the day we’re all working. So why be mad at another black model? All of us are beautiful in our own way. Why can’t we all be friends?”—Beverly Peele, model
“As women of color in the fashion industry, we have had rewarding and challenging experiences. As we reflect on the beginning of our careers when we were interns and executive trainees, there were very few people who looked like us and progressed through the career path, which is why we serve as co-presidents of BRAG, a nonprofit organization dedicated to providing internships and scholarships to people of color interested in fashion retail careers. Too often, we see high potential talent at all levels leave this industry because they do not see a future for themselves, and often feel their perspective isn’t valued.”—Nicole Cokley Dunlap, vice-president, Bloomingdale’s, and Shawn Outler, executive vice-president, Macy’s

A classic favorite, the best time to rock a dark lip is this season, as seen on many celebrities such Shay Mitchell and Lily Collins. If you want to channel old-school glamour, add a dark berry lip with nude eyes and lashes of mascara. To make sure you have the perfect red lip for the whole night, start with outlining and filling your lips with a lip pencil and then use a lip brush to apply the color of your lipstick for a precise finish. To avoid edges that fade, add concealer around the sides of your lips and blend it out. Pair this makeup trend for Christmas with a dramatic winged eyeliner and a subtle touch of blush.
“Waterjet controls, like all machine tool controls, continue to evolve to make them more intuitive and easier to use. More features, basically ‘canned code,’ make it less necessary for the operator to understand machine programing and the features/geometry of a part. However, too many ‘canned code’ lines reduce the operator’s access to programs and may negatively impact skilled users’ flexibility to optimize cuts and nest production. Finding the right balance is important.”
