Spend Less – Get More (Running Shoes Study)

The research that Jens Jakob Andersen (lead researcher) and Wojciech Fedyszyn (assistant) conducted comes to a bunch of really interesting and surprising conclusions when it comes to running shoes, their prices, brands and level of satisfaction. The guys analyzed 134,867 user reviews from 391 running shoes at RunRepeat.

Other than that, the researchers also made use of list prices from 24 brands on the same running shoes. Doing that allowed Jens and Wojciech to get both shoe and brand specific data as a result of their meticulous work. It goes without saying that it’s not 100% perfect (as any other study out there) so you still need to take that into account while looking through the results.

You can rest assured that you will be surprised at least a few times. For one, it turns out that you don’t really need to spend tons of money to be happy with your running shoes. Though it may sound extremely counterintuitive, the study proves that the price of your running shoes and the level of satisfaction with your running shoes are not proportionally dependent at all.

Moreover, it looks that the higher is the price of the running shoes, the higher are the odds that you will not be satisfied with your running shoes. Go figure! On that note, it works the other way around as well. The cheaper is the price of your running shoes, the higher is the chance that you’re actually going to be satisfied with your buy.

Five Questions About Chiropractic

According to a new Gallup report commissioned by Palmer College of Chiropractic, 33.6 million U.S. adults (14 percent) seek chiropractic care each year.

The report, officially named, the “Gallup-Palmer College of Chiropractic Inaugural Report: Americans’ Perceptions of Chiropractic,” also indicates that more than half of U.S. adults view doctors of chiropractic positively and agree they’re effective at treating neck and back pain.

Key highlights:

  • Two-thirds (61 percent) of adult Americans believe chiropractors are effective at treating neck and back pain.
  • The majority (57 percent) of adults are likely to see a chiropractor for neck or back pain.
  • More than 1/2 of all U.S. adults have visited a chiropractor, and more than 1/4 of them would choose chiropractic care first for back or neck pain.
  • Nearly 1/2 of all U.S. adults don’t know if their insurance covers chiropractic care.

This first-ever nationally representative annual survey measured perceptions of, and experiences with, chiropractic among U.S. adults. The survey will be repeated for at least two more years as part of Palmer College’s on-going effort to study and advance the profession’s identity and public understanding of chiropractic care.

Highlights of the study are available online from Gallup. The full report also is online. In addition, a scientific article based on this research, titled “Public Perceptions of Doctors of Chiropractic: Results of a National Survey and Examination of Variation According to Respondents’ Likelihood to Use Chiropractic, Experience With Chiropractic, and Chiropractic Supply in Local Health Care Markets,” was published by the Journal of Manipulative and Physiological Therapeutics (JMPT).

Parenting in the Digital Age

There’s no denying that being a parent has changed a lot in the past 20-30 years. Since most teens tend to stay in front of a gadget instead of going outside and play, it can be very hard for a parent to use the same approach as a few decades ago.

It can be hard to find the perfect balance between being a great parent all while offering your child the freedom he wants. And with the digital addiction being one of the major issues that teenagers have to face nowadays, it can be very challenging for a parent to find the right approach in this digital age.

Demolition Contractors Explain Long Reach vs. High Reach Excavators

These days demolition contractors don’t truly “demolish “buildings. In fact, they are strategically dismantled and removed piece by piece, using long-reach and high-reach excavators, as well as other construction equipment, in versatile ways.

These powerful tools are the linchpins of modern demolition. Their versatility and unique capabilities have enabled the industry to meet the increasingly complex demolition needs in cities such as Portland, Oregon where old buildings are often extracted from crowded neighborhood blocks to make way for new construction.

Here’s a look at the top challenges Oregon demolition contractors face—and how excavators help overcome them.

Demolition in the Big City

Over the past few years, economic growth in Portland has fueled demand for demolition services. Around 300 houses are demolished in Portland each year, and 110 commercial buildings were approved for demo in 2013 alone. Many of the demolitions occur in tight urban or neighborhood spaces, where traditional methods couldn’t safely remove a building without putting nearby people and structures at risk.

“In crowded cities there are tougher controls over demolition,” says The Economist. “With excavator arms that now reach up 12 stories, demolition firms can ‘chew a building apart’ from the top down.”

Eco-consciousness has also had a big impact on building demolition. Portland and many other forward-thinking cities have placed a high premium on sustainability, requiring “responsible management of debris generated by construction and demolition activities.”

The average 2,500 square-foot home can contain more than 25 tons of debris, most of which has traditionally ended up in landfills. Excavators make it possible to break down and sort up to 90 percent of a building’s materials for reuse or recycling—compared to 40 percent using conventional methods.

That’s why more than 99 percent of demolition work is now performed by specialized equipment such as excavators.

How Excavators Work

Since the first hydraulic excavator was built in 1951, these machines have played an influential role in construction. With the ability to shovel up as much as 57 cubic yards of debris, they made digging ditches, foundations and basements much faster.

Over the years, those early ditch-digging excavators evolved to tackle other types of projects as well. Demolition contractors began using them to scoop out debris from demolition sites. Excavators not only sped up the job, but they made demolition safer. Oregon demolition firms became more operator-driven than labor-driven; instead of having more people risking injury on the job, a few operators could complete the work faster and from a much safer vantage point.

Today’s excavators come in a variety of sizes, with all sorts of safety and utility features. (The world’s largest weighs more than 2 million pounds.) There are two main types of excavators: long-reach and high-reach. Although they look similar in many ways, they perform two distinct functions.

Long-reach excavators: These machines extend horizontally, allowing demolition contractors to reach inside a building and break apart or scoop out its insides. Although they can reach as far as 150 feet, they’re not made for upper-story work. Demolition companies most often use them for digging out rubble and salvaging scrap metal from a building’s interior. By attaching a pair of shears, for example, a contractor can cut a building apart, gnawing through steel columns thick enough to support 20 stories.

High-reach excavators: These are the giraffes of the demolition world, built to reach a building’s highest stories. They can extend as high as 160 feet—some are capable of taking down a 10-story building. Without high-reach excavators, demolition contractors would have to put machines on top of structures and work their way down. They also excel at precision demolition in tight spaces.

In many ways, these excavators have revolutionized building demolition; Portland contractors rely on them to meet tight timelines and strict city regulations. Instead of blunt force, they apply surgical precision. Take a look at our infographic to learn more about the incredible tasks this amazing equipment is capable of performing.
