IBM thinks the future belongs to computers that mimic the human brain and use quantum physics…and they’re betting $3 billion on it.

IBM is unveil­ing a mas­sive $3 bil­lion research and devel­op­ment round on Wednes­day, invest­ing in weird, sci­ence fiction-like technologies–and, in the process, essen­tial­ly stak­ing Big Blue’s long-term sur­vival on big data and cog­ni­tive com­put­ing.

Over the next five years, IBM will invest a sig­nif­i­cant amount of their total rev­enue in tech­nolo­gies like non-silicon com­put­er chips, quan­tum com­put­ing research, and com­put­ers that mimic the human brain.

The $3 bil­lion fund­ing round will go towards a vari­ety of projects designed to cat­a­pult semi­con­duc­tor man­u­fac­tur­ing past what IBM phys­i­cal sci­ences direc­tor Supratik Guha calls the “end of sil­i­con scal­ing” in microchips. Essen­tial­ly, IBM believes there will be a point in the medium-term future where microchips will no longer be made out of sil­i­con because other mate­ri­als will allow for faster and more com­plex com­pu­ta­tion. In a tele­phone con­ver­sa­tion, Guha told Fast Com­pa­ny that his com­pa­ny sees an end to sil­i­con scal­ing with­in the next three to four tech gen­er­a­tions.

The new R&D ini­tia­tives fall into two cat­e­gories: Devel­op­ing nan­otech com­po­nents for sil­i­con chips for big data and cloud sys­tems, and exper­i­men­ta­tion with “post-silicon” microchips. This will include research into quan­tum com­put­ers which don’t know bina­ry code, neu­rosy­nap­tic com­put­ers which mimic the behav­ior of liv­ing brains, car­bon nan­otubes, graphene tools and a vari­ety of other tech­nolo­gies.

IBM’s invest­ment is one of the largest for quan­tum com­put­ing to date; the com­pa­ny is one of the biggest researchers in the field, along with a Cana­di­an com­pa­ny named D-Wave which is part­ner­ing with Google and NASA to devel­op quan­tum com­put­er sys­tems.

The news of the fund­ing round is sur­pris­ing to some IBM-watchers; for the past year or so, rumors flew that IBM was con­sid­er­ing an exit from the microchip busi­ness. Bar­ring an unlike­ly sharp turn by Big Blue in busi­ness strat­e­gy, the fund­ing round is essen­tial­ly a shift of strat­e­gy by IBM. While it looks like­ly that IBM will sell their chip unit–the New York Times cites Glob­al­Foundries as a like­ly buyer–the invest­ment means that IBM sees a new way to make money from chips: Long-term returns from hold­ing valu­able, poten­tial­ly lucra­tive pate …
It’s a sad day for video games as Ralph Baer, the “father of video games,” has died at the age of 92.

He was a prolific inventor who earned more than 150 patents in his life, but his most famous work was creating a machine known as the Brown Box. It was later released in 1972 as the Magnavox Odyssey, the first home video game console. Gamasutra confirmed Baer’s passing.

It’s a reminder for us all that the video game industry is still pretty young, and many of its pioneers are still alive. But Baer’s passing is also a reminder that it’s good to preserve the industry’s history and honor its professionals while they’re still alive.

Baer earned the National Medal of Technology — the nation’s highest honor for inventors — from President George W. Bush in 2006 for Baer’s work in starting the video game industry. He invented toys such as the light gun, a peripheral for video game consoles. He also created the interactive memory game, Simon.

He was born in Germany in 1922, but had to flee the Nazis. His family fled two months before the Kristallnacht, or Night of Broken Glass, when the Nazis attacked Jewish businesses and homes. His family moved to Holland and later to the U.S.

New research suggests skincare tailored to individuals’ DNA may be the best way to combat the appearance of ageing

Those who believe that beauty is only skin deep may need to think again. For the first time, scientists have gone right into our DNA to develop the most advanced anti-ageing serum ever created.

The new treatment, developed by one of Britain’s leading scientific innovators, is personally tailored to each individual and could revolutionise how women – and maybe even men – approach their daily skincare regime.

It relies on a new microchip that allows the product’s creators to analyse a person’s genetic code within just 30 minutes. Through this, they can discover how fast their body degrades collagen – the structural protein that keeps the skin plump and supple – and their level of antioxidants, which protect against damaging free radicals.

Using this information, they develop a personalised anti-ageing cream to deliver the right amount of collagen and antioxidants to reduce the appearance of wrinkles.

Clinical trials over 18 months have already suggested that the product, named Geneu (pronounced ‘gene you’), reduces fine lines and wrinkles by up to 30 per cent within just 12 weeks.

The skincare range was developed by Prof Chris Toumazou, Regius Professor at Imperial College, London, who invented the cochlear ear implant, which helped 10,000 deaf children to hear, the artificial pancreas for Type 1 diabetics and the wireless heart monitor.

The range is possible because of his latest invention, a handheld microchip device, which can sequence DNA in 30 minutes. He recently won European Inventor of the Year 2014 for the breakthrough.

Prof Toumazau hopes that by bringing the technology into the consumer arena, it will help the public get used to the idea of DNA checks which will ultimately benefit their health and encourage an era of personalised medicine.

“It’s not really skincare, it’s skin health,” he said. “The skin is the largest organ in the body.”

At Geneu’s New Bond Street clinic in central London, doctors take a cheek swab before isolating the DNA strands and injecting them into the microchip, which is then fed into a sequencing computer. In 30 minutes, the profile is ready and a serum can be created.

Dr Maria Karvela, one of the scientific advisers at Geneu, who administers the test said: “As soon as I heard about Chris and the microchip, I wanted to be part of it. It really is cutting-edge science.”

Most people degrade collagen at an average speed, but …

Use the type with a round head and flat underside head. That way they hold the material better without splitting into it. Two packages of 16 screws sell for $2.36 at Home Depot. That’s where I got mine and 32 screws are plenty for one cabinet.

I’m a little old lady, and was apprehensive about assembling it by myself, but the instructions were clear with every step illustrated, and it went together quickly and tightly. The only difficulty I had was getting the package from the front porch into the kitchen: it was around seven feet long, and VERY HEAVY, partly because it was so well protected from potential damage in transit. I had the help of a small dolly, but a couple of healthy grandsons would have been nice, too.
Vacuum friendly. This broom closet solves a common storage problem: the unwieldy bulk of a vacuum with an extension wand.

It’s too early to tell what long-term effects Apple’s new, bigger-screened iPhones—the 6 and the monster-sized 6 Plus—will have on its shaky iPad tablet business. But according to Pocket, the popular service for saving web articles to read later on your phone, the new iPhones are already taking screen time away from iPads.

Specifically, Pocket found:

iPhone 6 and 6 Plus owners are reading more on their phones. “Those with the 6 now open 33% more articles and videos inside Pocket than they did with a 5/5S, and those with the 6 Plus open 65% more items than they did with a smaller phone,” Pocket says.•
The larger phones are cannibalizing iPad reading share.
Previously, iPhone 5 and 5S users opened about 55% of their Pocket articles on their phone, versus about 45% on a tablet. With the iPhone 6, that changed to 72% of activity on phones. And with the iPhone 6 Plus, it’s about 80%—the same ratio seen among Pocket’s Android population.•
But the iPad is still popular at night.
“Regardless of which iPhone they have, users still reach for their iPads around 9pm for some late-night, bedtime reading,” Pocket says.

(See Pocket’s blog for some more interesting observations.)

A few caveats: First, the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus are brand new, so it’s possible this reflects new-gadget lust more than the long-term trend line. Second, this is one company measuring a subset of its users performing specific activities—primarily reading articles and also watching saved videos. It’s hardly representative of the entire ecosystem. And third, Apple CEO Tim Cook has stated clearly that he’s fine with cannibalizing his own products. He will be especially glad to do so with the iPhone, which is significantly more profitable than the iPad.

Early note shows delight at birth of his daughter while later letters show fame was beginning to be a trial

The letter from the 22-year-old Albert Einstein revealed his delight at fathering a daughter, Lieserl, with his sweetheart, former classmate and future wife, Mileva Marić. How the new mother took the missive is less than clear.

Posted to her from Berne, Switzerland, on 4 February 1902, the letter conveys Einstein’s excitement at hearing of his daughter’s birth at Marić’s family home in Serbia, but swiftly launches into questions about the new arrival’s health and appearance. “Is she healthy and does she already cry properly?” Einstein asked. “What kind of little eyes does she have? Whom of us two does she resemble more? Who is giving her milk? Is she hungry? And so she is completely bald. I love her so much and I don’t even know her yet!”

The letter goes on to express Einstein’s fascination with the idea of having a baby himself (“it must be so interesting!”) before making a request of Marić, who was still recovering from the birth. “When you feel a little better, you must make a drawing of her.”

The letter is among 5,000 searchable documents from the first 44 years of Einstein’s life, which go online free on Friday in their original German and in English translation. The letters, diaries and scientific papers represent the contents of The Collected Papers of Albert Einstein from Princeton University Press, and cover the time up to Einstein’s Nobel prize in physics for the photoelectric effect in 1921, and his long voyage to the Far East the following year. More volumes will be added to the collection as they are printed.

“We want to make everything accessible to a much wider audience than just the scholars, historians, physicists and philosophers,” said Diana Kormos-Buchwald, director of the Einstein Papers Project. “It’s been a challenge to get all the material online, but I’m extremely thrilled that we have succeeded.”

Though Einstein did not keep many of his earliest writings, the collection gives an extraordinary view of his transformation from an unexceptional student into the staggering intellect who developed the principle of relativity, proposed that light behaved as particles, or “quanta”, and showed that energy and mass were two sides of the same coin.

Within the documents are early signs of the force Einstein was to become. In a French essay, a 17-year-old Einstein writes that while a happy man is too satisfied with the present to dwell too …

A hose reel is perhaps the most efficient way to re-coil your hose when you’re done watering your garden or washing the car. As everyone who’s ever tried to tidy up a hose knows, coiling it by hand usually results in annoying kinks and a stubborn hose than wants to only curl a certain way. With a hose reel you can simply wrap your hose around it, or use a crank to let the reel do all the work for you.

In the mid-1820’s the Shakers, an industrious religious order, started making brooms, changing the design of the round broom: they eliminated the woven stems up the handle, the holes and the pegs, and used wire to bind their broom to the handle. They then put their broom in a vise, sewing it into the flat brooms we use today. While their flat broom sweeps a rough surface very well, it does not do as quick and thorough a job as the earlier round broom, on a smooth surface.

The steam itself is powerful and variable, making it perfect for lifting ingrained stains, as well as scrubbing up hard floors and carpets a treat. The triangular cleaning head is also brilliant for getting into stubborn corners.

This wasn’t a test, per se, but we felt it was important to judge the comfort level of using each steam mop. We considered how much it weighed, how easily the mop head maneuvered into tight spaces, how easy it was to use, and whether or not it was noisy during use.

Manufacturers indicate that their steam mops can be used on various hard floors, including vinyl, tile, and sealed wood. But all the tested models left residual moisture, some more than others. A wood floor that appears sealed might have crevices where water can seep in and cause damage. Also, some wood finishes or older waxes might haze over. Check with the manufacturer of your flooring to make sure using a steam mop wouldn’t void the warranty.

Garage organization is not difficult nor is it expensive. It is however, essential if you want a clean space where everything is relatively easy to find. Whether you have a large garage or just a small space, there are many things that you can do to utilize that space and give yourself a bit of additional storage without taking up the area that you need for cars and other items.

The cleaner’s 300ml reservoir is good for 15-20 minutes of steaming on the lowest setting, or half of that on the maximum scrub setting. One real boon is that it uses tap water alone to steam off dirt, eliminating the need to buy pricey detergent.

Exactly what I needed and cut on the miter saw perfectly. I needed to finish up a wall and needed a few odd sizes. The standard panels are 4′, but I needed 5′.

Keep lawn and garden tools off the floor with an adjustable hanging rail system. The rails mount to your garage walls and you add hooks to hang tools. The open floor space underneath is a great spot for your mower or wheelbarrow.

A steam mop works by heating up the water inside the reservoir to temperatures of about 120 degrees Celsius (248 degrees Fahrenheit). Many steam mops have one jet dry steam (but may have as many as 15 jets), moistening a microfibre pad placed underneath. The steam helps soak the pad and dirt is drawn off ground. Unlike regular mops, steam mops do not leave a residue on the floor and often clean through the dirt. The heat of the steam can kill about 99 percent of the bacteria and dust mites. Steam mops can disinfect floors, restore shine, kill dust mites, and remove some stains.

The cartons of all but one steam mop promise to sanitize floors and other surfaces. Those claims may well be true, at least to some extent, because all the tested models produced steam that was hotter than 200° F. (With a typical home heating system’s hot water set to 120° F, the hottest you can make an ordinary squeeze mop is about 100° F.)

Keep lawn and garden tools off the floor with an adjustable hanging rail system. The rails mount to your garage walls and you add hooks to hang tools. The open floor space underneath is a great spot for your mower or wheelbarrow.

Use a hanging shoe organizer for even more storage space. Hanging shoe organizers with pockets are ideal for organizing any number of small objects. Group together seed packets, dowels and stakes, twine, weedeater string, or any of your other garden supplies.

Everyone is always looking for ways to be more organized, and it can be hard to find a home for some items, no matter how put together your home is. But a simple pegboard like this can help keep rooms clean, and items in plain sight and within reach when needed. Your wall never has to be marred by miscalculated nail holes or markings.

High traffic areas – We wanted to find out how well each steam mop cleaned up ground-in dirt and dust, and there was no better test for this than the laundry/mud room. Outside dirt is constantly tracked onto the linoleum floor here, leaving dusty and sometimes muddy footprints all over the surface. With each steam mop, we did the same number of slow passes on the floor and then checked the results. After cleaning, we considered the floor’s brightness, how it felt to the touch, and how much dirt was on the microfiber pad (meaning it was no longer on the floor!).

For a budget-priced buy, the Shark Pocket Mop is our pick for the best deal. Priced as low as $52 at publication, this mop comes with many of the key features we looked for in a mop. It heats up in less than a minute (30 seconds, to be exact) and our test floors were dry in around two minutes.

Featuring a simple but nice design, the Berry Ave broom holder is truly one of the best the market has to offer. This top-rated organizer boasts of 5 ultra strong spring-loaded ball that slots auto-adjust to any handle size. Its easy-release feature ensures effortless removal. It also has six retractable hooks for additional storage. The holder works both outdoors and indoors.

You should make sure the size of the mop head included will meet the requirements for the area you have. Too small, and it will take you longer, too large and you’ll have trouble getting close to the edges or into corners.

I originally had a long review here and only gave this two stars, but I bumped it up to three because it does hold a lot of stuff, and even though it’s pretty flimsy, I’m pretty happy with it. If you never move this and aren’t trying to hold an army of odd fitting tools, then you’d probably give it a higher rating. I definitely have a ton of stuff on it and it’s very important for me to be able to move this, so I’ll probably have to bolt on 2x4s to stabilize it somehow (which would be pretty difficult because everything is so wonky).
The only suggestion I would give to the producer/seller is to use better quality screws, because just soon I tried tightening the ones provided in the package the head stripped off, I had to go thru the hassle to take’em out and use 2 same length bolts I luckily had in my hardware box.

I bought this fo our town home so we could put up the tools we brought over when we moved out of our single family house. This is obviously a lit better than leaving everything in a corner. they come in smaller sections so you can break it up and customize your wall layout. holes match up with standard stud placement. The plastic hooks are kind of weak so I will probably get some metal ones, but they are working just fine. I feel like I need to be delicate taking things off the hooks though, but I haven’t had a problem with them yet, and you get quite a few hooks for the price.

This garden tool organizer is rather large with a length of over 8 feet. Highly durable product and manufactured in China. Steel rail can be held on walls and other surfaces. Can hold up to 24 garden tools and is available in the color silver. As long as there is plenty of space, this tool storage system works incredibly. 8 feet is huge, not something you find in the everyday organizer. A lot of people may think that 8 feet is going to take up a lot of space. Well, this is not exactly true. Remember, this is just a rail, not something boxy that has to be in a precise location.
This product is not as advertised. The plastic is very flimsy and poor quality. The hooks can’t hold heavy tools and objects. Should have gone for the one made out of metal instead of plastic. I don’t expect this to last very long. It’s not worth the price.

A great thing about the Rough Rack 4×4 Tool Rack is that it gives you plenty of space for multiple gardening tools. (48 inches in length with over 40 inches for hanging your tools). A lot of gardening organizers may have too little or too much space, I believe that this rack works well for the average gardening purposes. Another incredible feature this rack has is its ability to hold over 30 standard size shovels. While you probably do not have 30 shovels lying around, it shows the massive amount of items it can hold at once. Finally, the Rough Rack 4×4 Tool Rack is made in America.

The tower rack was pretty sturdy and was easy to assemble minus the fact that the casters fit in the holes at the bottom, but wouldn’t stay. (In the picture they are there because they stay there, but once you move it, they fall out) The casters are meant to just pop right into a predesigned hole. Almost like the holes were too big for the casters. From my understanding, you can place the tools in there one of two ways. One way is straight from the top. Just slide down into place. That’s not really the best method to do it if it’s in a shed due to lack of height. The other way, if I’m not mistaken is to go through the side. Going through the side is a bit difficult. Maybe the tools I have (mainly husky), are too wide in diameter. It was tough to push through the side. It advertises 40 tools, but I think comfortable I could probably fit half of that.

Ideally you will need 54 inches of horizontal space to mount one bar on top and another bar below so the holding prongs are off center. The hanger does not come with mounting screws so you will need #10 by 2 1/2 in wood screws.

I like those dust mobs! I think I’ll look into them. Personally I use and prefer a Swiffer because of its ease of use—and because my apartment is not that huge, so the cost is acceptable. My problem with microfiber cloths is that they bind so many dust balls, so I don’t want to put them in the same laundry cycle as my clothes. I also have a spray mob, and I really do like it, but washing the microfiber cloths is just annoying because of that. If my bathroom floor is really dirty, I occasionally even use the wet Swiffer sheets just so that I don’t have to deal with that wet and dirty microfiber cloth. What am I to do with a single cloth a week? In my country at least, those Swiffer sheets get burnt, not put into the ground.

Indoor brooms are designed to move small quantities of dust and fine particles, but their bristles and bindings generally aren’t strong enough to push heavier materials. Outdoor brooms are designed to move large-scale effluvia such as acorns, wet leaves, sand, and gravel, and their heads are wide enough to clear a wide swath quickly. Our top outdoor broom picks have a mix of fine bristles for dust and coarse bristles for big debris. You can use just one broom to sweep away sand, spent fire-crackers, bottle caps, durian rinds, band-aids, and all the other evidence of your block party aftermath.

If you prefer a swinging sweeping motion or a rustic, traditional look, we like the Garrett Wade Heavy Duty Garden & Garage Broom ($30 + $10.50 for US shipping), a natural (not synthetic) broom made of piassava bristles. It’s tough, stiff, and can remove every bit of dust from rough concrete, decking crevices, or any tight corners, but just make sure those areas are dry first. Its bristles can rot when used on wet debris, which gives our synthetic push brooms a huge advantage.

Step four: There is no step four! You’re done. Just don’t forget to keep your broom clean. Maker recommends washing it with soap and water in a sink, using a sink strainer to keep the crud from clogging up your pipes.

A good broom and dustpan is a requirement for any home, but even for a basic household item like this one, finding the perfect choice can be difficult. The more useful a product is, the more options the market has available for sale. To make it easier for you to choose the best option, we put together a list of things to consider when shopping for your next purchase.

Does anyone here still use the old-fashioned type of broom for sweeping indoors? I’ve got hardwoods throughout most of my house, with Saltillo tile in the kitchen and ceramic tile in one bathroom. I find it so much easier to just get out the regular ol’ broom and sweep up messes (we’ve got 4 cats, so messes are frequent!), but am wondering if there’s a difference in the types or brands of brooms. I saw a program recently featuring a broom craftsman – a gentleman who makes brooms by hand (of broomcorn?) and he said that they’re still the best for sweeping, and that the brooms with synthetic bristles are inferior. I dunno, but I’d sure like opinions on the best broom out there if anyone has an opinion to share!

Follow-up. As you can see in the comments the manufacturer did 2 things that are VERY unusual these days of neglected customer service as the norm: 1) they actually followed the reviews of their products and 2) they made good on product failures without even having to be asked.

Sweep or vacuum the floor before mopping. Most mops do a poor job of picking up crumbs, hair, and other forms of solid debris. As such, you’ll need to use a broom, hardwood floor vacuum, or handheld vacuum to clean up the floor before mopping it.[3]

The Casabella Wayclean Wide Angle Broom’s biggest flaw is that it doesn’t come with a dustpan. Our survey found that most people don’t want a dustpan-and-brush set, they want to use their broom with a dustpan. Pairing our pick with the $6 OXO Good Grips Clip-On Dustpan costs only $16 total—that’s still cheaper than many broom and dustpan sets we tested, and a better combo than all the alternatives.

This angled broom from Black & Decker not only makes our list of best brooms but also scores top marks in almost every aspect. The design of this broom is extremely ergonomic and convenient and lets you reach into the tightest and smallest of places. The bristles and the handle both are exceptionally well-made and provide very efficient cleaning. The handle also has a rubber bumper in the middle which makes it very easy to grip and move around. This broom is ideal for all sorts of settings, be it your home, office or outdoors.

Why is this broom so effective? Most of the magic is in the bristles. The Casabella has 2,880 bristles; 96 clumps with 30 bristles each arranged in four staggered rows. Because the PVC (polyvinyl chloride) bristles are so dense and well-arranged, they create a thick forest for sweeping and trapping dust, ensuring that few particles are left behind. Our pick is about 25 percent thicker than our runner-up, which has 2,184 bristles, arranged in four rows that leave small, diagonal paths through the broom for dust and other particles to escape while you sweep.

To learn what makes a good broom, dust mop, and dustpan, we interviewed Debra Johnson, a home-cleaning expert who has worked with Merry Maids since 1997. In addition to her firsthand cleaning expertise, she works with the Merry Maids Franchise Cleaning Council to research and improve the cleaning equipment the company uses. We also talked to Green Cleaning Coach Leslie Reichert, a housekeeping expert who teaches people how to clean effectively and in environmentally friendly ways. Then, we surveyed hundreds of Wirecutter readers to find out what they love (and hate) about their own brooms.

If dusty cleaning implements offend you, you can clean plastic brooms with hot water and bleach. Cleaning corn brooms is trickier because if they stay too wet for too long, they’ll mildew. The Martha Stewart juggernaut suggests that you “Clean the bristles by running them over a stiff edge, such as a deck stair or a front stoop,”… that is, put the dirt back on the places you were trying to clean with your outdoor broom in the first place. You can’t win.

Our pick is wide angle, but most brooms are of a similar size so if you’re having issues with larger areas you might want to look into something like the dual-action dustmop we recommend above. Hope this helps!

Generally, we found more bristles and a denser broom head to be more effective than a sparse-bristled broom. But individual bristle stiffness and length also played a part in the overall texture of the broom—long, soft, floppy bristles fling dust around rather than making a neat pile, whereas thick, stiff bristles can’t reach into cramped corners. We were looking for a Goldilocks broom: as dense as possible, not too soft, and not too stiff. Just right.

When we researched the O-Cedar Dual-Action Flip Mop, we were concerned that the dust mop’s flipping mechanism would be loose and uncooperative, making the dust mop difficult to steer. But we found that the polypropylene resin frame has two thin, hollow strips that make the head top heavy. This makes the frame easy to flip along its horizontal axis by simply lifting the handle.

When comparing this tool to any other similar one, it will always be at least as good, and in most cases it is better. This broom is extremely high quality, and it easily outperforms every other option.

The Black+Decker Angle Broom (261019) is not as good at picking up dust as our top pick or runner-up. According to two of our testers, its bristles aren’t as plentiful or dense, which limits its usefulness. Since it’s more expensive than both of our picks and is prone to flinging rather than picking up dust particles, we don’t recommend it. The sharp angle is great for digging out dirt stuck corners, however.

The $15 Rubbermaid Flexible Sweeper has an effective cover, but that cloth is too big for the frame. During cleaning it feels like it’s going to fall off. The frame is hollow in the middle, so it doesn’t press the cloth evenly into the floor. Finally, the handle extension mechanism is bulky and makes the Rubbermaid difficult to grip.

The $15 Casabella Flip Floor Duster had the same problem as the Rubbermaid Flexible Sweeper: Its hollow frame didn’t evenly press the cloth into the floor for a thorough wipe-down. It was also difficult to steer and didn’t hold up well in the wash.

The dry mop can in many instances replace a broom and has the ability to hold a limited amount of dust or sand within itself. The heads of dry mops are often removable and can be washed and replaced when saturated with dust.[4] Another option is using a vacuum cleaner to suck surface dust away from the mop; however, this is much more limited in its effectiveness.

Step three: Divide and conquer by breaking the room up into smaller sections, and then sweep each one using “fairly short deliberate strokes,” she says. Deal with each pile of dirt you create by sweeping it into a dustpan within that section—don’t try to move that pile all around! As for that “dreaded line of dirt” that the pan always seems to leave behind—which Maker refers to as “crazy-making,” and we don’t blame her—she recommends dealing with it using a damp paper towel.

On the other hand, dry dust mop serves as the best alternative for sweeping.  Products like the Swiffer Sweeper have static charged dry mop cloths that attract dust and debris.  These are a great way to get the particles that a soft bristled hardwood broom just can’t manage to sweep up.

The first SmartBroom was used by Canada before the 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi, Russia. But at the request of Curling Canada, the country’s national curling federation, Hamilton and his partners agreed not to sell SmartBrooms to other consumers until after the Olympics. Fowler called it a “polite agreement” rooted in relationships with Curling Canada officials.

Once you’ve swept up the most obtrusive crumbs, hairs, and dust clumps, Aarssen suggests doing a wet mop to get rid of the smallest dust particles; she calls it wet dusting. Aarssen likes using a device called the Rubbermaid Reveal Spray Mop, and points out that Velida manufactures a spray mop, too. Doing that can really eliminate all those little dust and hair particles, she says.

Hang to dry. Microfiber air-dries faster than most materials, and even the fluffiest dust mop heads we tested were fully dry within five to seven hours. If you must use a dryer (you really shouldn’t), then use low heat or tumble dry. Too much heat will melt and destroy your microfiber.

Both corn brooms and push brooms are made with a confusing variety of fibers. For most homeowners, the key issue is whether the broom is made of natural fibers—corn, tampico, piassava, or palmyra—or synthetic fibers. (Be aware that while “tampico” is made of plant fibers, “black tampico” is plastic. ) Corn, palmyra, and piassava fibers are made of plants, and if you get them wet, they can rot to pieces. Synthetic fibers won’t rot if they get wet, but they can get mold and mildew and stink up your broom closet. If you’re going to be sweeping wet debris regularly, get a synthetic-bristle broom. Most synthetic fiber brooms available to consumers are made of polypropylene.

Our panel unanimously agreed that the bristles on the $20 OXO Good Grips Any-Angle Broom are too soft, and the mechanism on the head isn’t useful. Its head is also thinner and sparser than the Casabella’s, and its bristles stick out at odd angles, which makes sweeping a neat pile difficult.

The hot mop (or steam mop) follows a similar concept to a steam iron. After water, the water is heated to make it exude on top of a floor, which can then be cleaned without using a cleaning solvent. These can work best on surfaces where a regular mop would also be used, such as bare floors, hearths, and laminate.

The Rubbermaid Commercial Palmyra Hardwood Block Street Broom looks promising, with strong, sturdy, firmly-attached bristles—but it’s just a broom head. The broom does have a hole for inserting a handle, but that hole doesn’t have threads. It’s just a conical hole, designed to match the Rubbermaid Commercial Sanded Wood Handle with Tapered Tip—that is, a pointy stick. What happens when you sweep with a broom pushed onto the end of a pointy stick? The head falls off, over and over and over again. Neither I nor my testers could manage to make the Rubbermaid Palmyra broom stay on its handle.  If you have patience, glue, a strong arm, and a mallet, you could probably make this broom head work for you.

It is a rubber made broomstick which has synthetic bristles enabling to move the serious dirt in an efficient manner. The handle of broom is padded which provides easy handling and comfort for perfect grip. You just have to give it a firm shake to collect the debris. It provides long lasting performance and does not pull off easily. It makes the sweep smooth. It is reliable and well suited for commercial and industry use.

Because our pick’s cloth has a large surface area and deep chenille nubs, it needed to be washed only every two weeks after cleaning 500 square feet of my apartment once per week. Your mileage will vary based on the size of your space and how dirty it is. The O-Cedar holds more dirt than any other dust mop we tested, and as a result needs to be washed less often.

Have you considered evaluating the Casabella neon broom? It appears to be very similar but the handle is slightly different – would be curious to hear your take, since it’s much easier and cheaper to come by.

Our runner-up has a 45.5-inch green pole and an 8.5-inch head, which adds up to a 54-inch-tall broom. As mentioned in the section above, the Libman is only an inch taller than the Casabella, but it’s effectively 3 inches taller because the Casabella’s 2-inch storage loop extends off the broom’s end rather than being built into the handle. It’s not a huge difference, but if our pick is a little short for you, the Libman may be a better option. Like the Casabella, the Libman is well-made and doesn’t rattle or flex during ordinary use (or vigorous shaking).

The broom closet (or cupboard) may be tiny, but it can cause major frustration when it’s not designed well. Whether you’re looking to incorporate a new broom closet into your remodel or want to better outfit your existing utility zone, these ideas can help.

Especially for BCC fan Gareth Noall, the wonderfully spooky, yet equally enchanting Moondial by Helen Cresswell. I watched this a couple of months ago, and it still holds up. I recommend you getting it if you can! – Calum

Cost: Wall storage systems can cost from $200 to $600 (and up), depending on size and features. You can install a pegboard for $100 or less, using materials from the hardware store and your own labor.

I wasn’t expecting such a good deal on these cute hanging storage cups. They are much bigger and sturdier than I thought they would be. They are a great deal for the price. They do not come with instructions but are very easy to assemble. I would definitely recommend them if you want cute storage cups to hang on your wall.

Prep Garden Tools Clean, sharp tools will make your garden chores much easier. Cleaning also extends the life of your tools and thus reduces waste. Tools should be cleaned, filed and oiled for the winter. If that’s overwhelming for your busy schedule, here are the shortcuts we’ll be taking to clean our tools year: Rinse off the dirt from garden tools.

Elsewhere, a Damien Hirst dot painting is glimpsed through the out-of-focus filigree of a Jeff Koons mirror at a Christie’s auction (Mirror, 2003-2004), while one of his spin paintings is shown hanging in what looks like a broom closet (One Big One in an Edition of Five, 2003-2004).

The Libman weighs about a third of a pound more than our pick, with more weight in the head, so it feels top-heavy in comparison. One of our panel members loved it, saying “I feel like the weight of the broom is assisting, like the broom is doing some of the work for me.” But most panel members didn’t like the Libman’s heavy head and bristles; they preferred the lighter, more evenly distributed Casabella.

Use a level to make sure the top 1-by-4 is level. Hold it in place and drill two 1/4-inch pilot holes over each stud. Level and drill similar pilot holes over the lower 1-by-4. The top edge of the upper 1-by-4 and the bottom edge of the lower 1-by-4 should be 10 inches apart. Screw both 1-by-4s into place with 2 1/2-inch screws.

Breakdowns during programmes on Children’s BBC were infrequent but when they occurred were often entertaining. One episode of Willy Fog suddenly lost picture part way through, before falling off air completely, resulting in an unscheduled appearance by Andy Crane and guest Steve Colman (presenter of quiz game Knock Knock) for some hastily improvised filling.

We learned that synthetic bristles are best for brooms because they’re immune to rot and can be cleaned with warm, soapy water. This means corn or horsehair bristles are out. The bristles must have flagged ends—intentionally frayed tips designed to capture dust, dirt, and hair at the broom’s sweeping surface. (In our survey and perusal of user reviews, we learned that many people think this fraying is a sign their broom is wearing out—not so!)

For Summer 1986, the decision was taken to move Children’s BBC to the mornings. The traditional BBC1 afternoon schedule was abandoned (though BBC2 ran dubbed drama Heidi and Hanna-Barbera’s The Roman Holidays with standard out-of-vision, announcer-led presentation). The summer morning line up of programmes including repeats of Record Breakers, the acquired drama Silas, a summer version Newsround presented from alongside the Radio 1 Roadshow, and the long running Play School.

Insert lag screws through the handles’ center holes, and twist on the nylon spacers. If a hole is too small, clamp the handle to your work table, put a ¼-inch bit in the chuck of a drill/driver, and widen it.

Gordon The Gopher came to the Broom Cupboard at Christmas 1986, courtesy of Phillip’s Auntie Diane. The squeaky puppet soon became a firm favourite with viewers, and the bane of executives at BBC Enterprises, as Phillip shrewdly retained the merchandising rights.

and needed another like a hole in the head but after reading about the Casabella WayClean I wanted to give it a try. Ordered straight from Casabella and it arrived two days later.While it is a tad too short compared to the Black & Decker I really liked the way it cleaned my hardwood floors, so it’s my first choice.

Edd and Wilson eventually returned to the Broom Cupboard. Edd particularly liked the theatrical release Dick Tracy, starring Warren Beatty and Madonna, and regularly appeared in tribute, wearing a yellow raincoat and hat, as Duck Tracy. In the movie, Madonna’s character was called Breathless Mahoney and so in The Broom Cupboard, one of Edd’s feathered friends appeared – as the mute Quackless Baloney!

The $22 Bona Microfiber Floor Mop has an extendable handle like the Simplee Cleen, but it also has the same built-in Velcro that prevents us from recommending the Simplee Cleen. None of the Bona’s cloths were as good at cleaning as our pick, and removing the cloth from the Velcro teeth resulted in a massive dust plume in the air and all down my front. The Simplee Cleen had the same problem, but to a lesser degree.

A new face came to Children’s BBC on 1 April 1986, to allow Phillip to take a holiday and to present the 1986 series of Take Two. She was a one-time contestant on Bruce Forsyth’s Generation Game and her name was Debbie Flint.

Yes, Backpack vacuums really can go along way to replacing the dust mop, but there will always be a place for dust mops. Great job making an effort to control the dust! Once you capture the dust, why not contain it, right?

There are many different variations of dust mops, but I am going to focus on 3 common types. Cotton, Synthetic and Microfiber. I have used all of these over the years for dust mopping. Some are better than others, but this should help you know and understand the difference.

Andy’s last afternoon, Friday 20 April 1990, saw Wilson return from holiday and the old threesome were reunited once more. As the programmes of the afternoon (including quiz Eyespy with Christopher Rowe, and Australian sitcom Round The Twist), played out, the Broom Cupboard was slowly stripped of pictures. In the last link of the day Andy was joined by Andi Peters, as well as Roger Finn and Terry Baddoo from Newsround, who all came to say goodbye. Andy and Edd reprised their low-budget till-roll credits, acknowledging many of the stars of Children’s BBC from the last two and a half years, before Andy said goodbye – only to find out he’d been given a false count and had airtime remaining. Children’s BBC’s two production secretaries then appeared with a huge cake which Andy hid behind after saying an emotional goodbye. Aww!

I spoke with Mark Warner, senior training specialist at the Custodial Management Institute. CMI is a leading industry association that offers training to workers and in-depth seminars on regulations and best practices to plant managers. Like Wright, Warner offered deep insight on (and a winning enthusiasm for) proper mopping and sanitizing.

Carmel Phillips of Our Fifth House wanted to make the most of the small square footage of her master closet. The master closet has a small footprint, so utilizing and maximizing the vertical space was key, says Carmel. Stackable shoe shelves keep valuable floor space available for a dressing area.

The Swiffer WetJet is best suited to clean daily dirt from your hard floor. It does not absorb liquid spills and doesn’t pick up chunks of grime, but those who use it just for wet mopping are pleased with its performance. The textured pads pick up a lot of dirt, according to users, and you can even lean in and give a stubborn spot a good scrubbing — although some suggest pretreating dried stains first by squirting the spot with the mop’s cleaning solution and letting it sit, or using a separate cleaner to pretreat it. Many reviewers say the WetJet works well at picking up pet hair, too.

Wall Washing Kits feature pivoting heads and long handles that allow washers to move evenly over surfaces and clean at difficult angles. The raised rib design works with side or downward pressure mop wringers.

Looking for storage you can measure by the foot? Garden sheds come in metal, plastic or wooden finishes. And with spacious sheds, you’d be forgiven for turning it into a cosy little hideaway. If you fancy a bit of home-grown produce, install a mini or full-size greenhouse to the side.

The Libman Wonder Mop’s green handle and built-in wringer have been a familiar kitchen presence for decades. Like the O-Cedar’s, its metal handle is strong, light, and nimble, though it’s not quite as long (52 inches vs. 58 inches). In testing, we found it worked generally well: The mop readily absorbs spills and scrubs stains, and the built-in twist-wringer does its job. It just didn’t work as well as the O-Cedar at any of these tasks, its closest kin in design. One key difference: The Libman’s microfiber strips aren’t looped; they’re just ribbons of fabric attached at one end. That made for some tangles. However, because the wringer is built-in, you don’t need a bucket to use the Libman—you can wet it, rinse it, and wring it under a sink or tub faucet. That makes it advantageous for seriously small living spaces.

Brooms are one of the most basic but important tools in your janitorial arsenal, and they come in various forms to meet different needs.

The O-Cedar EasyWring Microfiber Mop and Bucket Floor Cleaning System is cut from the same cloth as the Casabella and Mopnado, though the bucket is slightly smaller (18 by 11½ by 12 inches, 3¼ pounds) and much more streamlined. It has no unnecessary gizmos, and the wringer is much simpler to use: Place the mop in it, pump a pedal on the bucket, and allow the handle to rotate in your hands. But, as with the Mopnado and Casabella, the spinner can’t be removed, and the bucket can only be filled halfway—so it’s another single-purpose space-waster. As well, when the bucket is filled with any amount of water, it tilts forward about 20 degrees, and feels like it’s about to nosedive when you carry it. The unique, triangular mop-head is a clever concept—theoretically making it easier to mop along baseboards and into corners—but in practice we found it constantly caught on the floor, jarring our wrists.
