Today was a great day for millions of DJs and vinyl fans around the world as Panasonic announced that they will be releasing a new line of their coveted SL-1200 turntables! These direct drive powerhouses have been a staple in the DJ world for decades and with the look of things vinyl is making a strong comeback so it is only appropriate for Panasonic to make this awesome announcement.
There will be two models being released this year. First will be a limited edition 50th Anniversary model which will only be limited to 1,200 units. Second will be the full production (non-limited) Grand Class SL-1200G. You might still have to wait several months till you are able to buy one, but they are on their way! Just make sure to start saving your money because we’re sure they’re going to come with a hefty price tag.
I am someone who believes that having a positive mindset is important for many aspects in life. Just turn on the news and 95% of what you see is all about negative and unfortunate things that are occurring around the world. I feel like the more you surround yourself around positive thoughts and positive things, the better and more productive results you will have in life.
I was recently introduced to a Soundcloud channel with recordings of a radio show titled “Let’s Talk About Life” by a gentleman named Allen Weinstein. Allen is a self-made man who didn’t even know how to read until he was 13 years old. As a child in school he was called “stupid” and was voted as the person to be the least successful in life. Allen is 80 years old and what you need to understand is that when he was a child in school, learning disabilities were something that people were simply not aware of. The truth is that Allen was not “stupid”, Allen suffered from dyslexia and ADHD which made it very difficult for him to learn as his peers did.
After listening to all of Allen’s “Let’s Talk About Life” radio episodes I was instantly hooked by the incredibly inspiring life experiences that Allen had to overcome in life. If you need a little inspiration and motivation in your life, I highly recommend getting yourself a copy of Allen Weinstein’s book “Memoirs of a Learning Disabled Dyslexic Multi-Millionaire” and don’t think that you need to have dyslexia in order to appreciate this book. There are many life stories that Allen shares in his book that will serve as inspiration to ANYONE.
Precise measurements are essential for any construction project. One of the most common tools found in any toolbox is a tape measure. Taking the right dimensions is very important for any construction or home improvement task around your house. When it comes to construction, a small discrepancy can cause a large setback in both time and money.
I came across this awesome new tool by STANLEY that not only makes everyone’s measuring job much easier, but also provides several additional features that come very handy when working on a construction project. It is called the Smart Measure Pro and it is a gadget that attaches to your smartphone or tablet and makes taking accurate measurements a breeze. Take a look for yourself in the video below…
Doesn’t that seem super easy to use? And the best part is that you don’t have to worry about writing anything down because all the details are store on your phone. I know I personally have spent a decent amount of time measuring something with a tape measure (which can be very clumsy if being done by yourself, lol) and have gone to Home Depot to buy my materials and realized I left the piece of paper with all my measurements at home! This new tool will definitely come in handy in my life. Thanks STANLEY
