How to Get the Infinity Bandana
Although he may not be the most instantly recognizable character in all of video games, Solid Snake is still a fairly iconic hero. Not to mention he has been among gamers’ most beloved protagonists, especially after the bandana-brandishing character made the transition from 2D to 3D with Metal Gear Solid.
It is for that reason that many Metal Gear Solid fans were surprised to see The Phantom Pain’s hero, Big Boss or “Punished Snake,” without his iconic bandana. In nearly iteration of the MGS series, or at least those released before the current console generation, Snake (be it Solid or Big Boss) has worn his trademark bandana.
Turns out, though, that is for good reason, as the bandana is one of the many (and we mean many!) collectibles scattered throughout the game. In fact, there are two bandanas players can earn while playing Metal Gear Solid 5: The Phantom Pain, and one of them, dubbed the ‘Infinity Bandana’, features a pretty cool ability.
How to Unlock the Metal Gear Solid 5 Bandana
First up is the basic bandana, which can be earned about three quarters of the way through the main story. In order to unlock the bandana, players will need to have their Research and Development team leveled up to 34 and they will need to complete Side Op #143. That particular Side Op gives Snake an item called Strangelove’s Memento, which combined with the level 34 R&D gives players the option of developing the bandana. The only other things players will need to do from there are spend the 400,000 GMP necessary for bandana development and wait the necessary time.
Once players have the bandana, they will be 50% less likely to sustain a serious injury while out in the field, which can be a huge advantage. Any time Big Boss takes damage there is a chance he can become gravely wounded, and the player is either required to stop and satisfy a ‘heal’ prompt or they simply let Big Boss die.
However, with the bandana equipped, it becomes more likely that Big Boss makes it out of the gunfight with only a few scratches. And when the difficulty ramps up like it does in the later missions, the ability to take more damage can prove very important.
How to Unlock the Infinity Bandana in Metal Gear Solid 5
While the regular bandana offers players a little extra survivability during missions and side ops, the infinity bandana is a little cooler. As the name implies, the infinity bandana gives players unlimited ammo for all of their weapons, essentially turning Punished Snake into a one-man wrecking crew, or a tranquilizer dart-shooting fiend.
To unlock the infinity bandana in Metal Gear Solid 5: The Phantom Pain, players will need to have satisfied a number of requirements. And since a few of them are story spoilers, we’ll say that there will be spoilers for Metal Gear Solid 5 from here on out.
First off, players will need to unlock mission 46, the “secret mission” in The Phantom Pain. To do so players will need to first unlock mission 45, which requires having maximum bond with Quiet, watching the cutscene where Huey leaves Mother Base, and using anything buy the butterfly emblem for your Forward Operating Base online activities.
After unlocking and completing mission 45, players will then need to complete all story missions up but not including 46, finish every highlighted (with yellow) Side Ops mission, and upgrade their Mother Base to nearly max potential in order to unlock Mission 46. Once that’s done, it’s time to go get the infinity bandana.
Upon completion of Mission 46 players will earn the Star of Bethlehem, another unique item essential to the infinity bandana’s development. Once acquired, players can use the Star of Bethlehem with a Research and Development level of 48 and 1,000,000 GMP to develop the infinity bandana. Again, wait the development time and infinite ammo will be yours.
While the Infinity Bandana would have been a useful unlockable during a first-time playthrough of Metal Gear Solid 5: The Phantom Pain, Kojima & Co. clearly wanted to make players earn the extremely useful accessory. And with it, players can give Snake a more familiar look.
Have you unlocked the bandana or infinity bandana in MGS 5? What other unlockable items have you found very useful?
Metal Gear Solid 5: The Phantom Pain is out now for PS3, Ps4, Xbox 360, and Xbox One.

Bandana Peach Lantana (Lantana camara ‘Bandana Peach’) in Rockport Camden Belfast Ellsworth Bucksport Bar Maine ME at Plants Unlimited
Bandana® Peach Lantana features showy cymes of peach flowers with yellow overtones and orange eyes at the ends of the branches from early summer to mid fall. Its tomentose pointy leaves remain green in color throughout the year. The fruit is not ornamentally significant.
Bandana® Peach Lantana is a multi-stemmed annual with a more or less rounded form. Its medium texture blends into the garden, but can always be balanced by a couple of finer or coarser plants for an effective composition.
This is a relatively low maintenance plant, and should not require much pruning, except when necessary, such as to remove dieback. It is a good choice for attracting butterflies to your yard, but is not particularly attractive to deer who tend to leave it alone in favor of tastier treats. It has no significant negative characteristics.
Bandana® Peach Lantana is recommended for the following landscape applications;
- Mass Planting
- Border Edging
- General Garden Use
- Container Planting
- Hanging Baskets
Bandana® Peach Lantana will grow to be about 18 inches tall at maturity, with a spread of 18 inches. When grown in masses or used as a bedding plant, individual plants should be spaced approximately 15 inches apart. Although it’s not a true annual, this fast-growing plant can be expected to behave as an annual in our climate if left outdoors over the winter, usually needing replacement the following year. As such, gardeners should take into consideration that it will perform differently than it would in its native habitat.
This plant does best in full sun to partial shade. It is very adaptable to both dry and moist growing conditions, but will not tolerate any standing water. It is considered to be drought-tolerant, and thus makes an ideal choice for a low-water garden or xeriscape application. It is not particular as to soil type or pH, and is able to handle environmental salt. It is highly tolerant of urban pollution and will even thrive in inner city environments. This is a selected variety of a species not originally from North America, and parts of it are known to be toxic to humans and animals, so care should be exercised in planting it around children and pets. It can be propagated by cuttings; however, as a cultivated variety, be aware that it may be subject to certain restrictions or prohibitions on propagation.
Bandana® Peach Lantana is a fine choice for the garden, but it is also a good selection for planting in outdoor containers and hanging baskets. It is often used as a ‘filler’ in the ‘spiller-thriller-filler’ container combination, providing a mass of flowers against which the thriller plants stand out. Note that when growing plants in outdoor containers and baskets, they may require more frequent waterings than they would in the yard or garden.

The California Transparency in Supply Chains Act of 2010 seeks the elimination of slavery and human trafficking from product supply chains and requires many retailers and manufacturers that do business in California to publicly disclose their efforts to eradicate slavery and human trafficking from their supply chains.
BAMKO embraces this goal. While we believe the risk of slavery or human trafficking in our supply chain is low, we nonetheless have a variety of mechanisms in place to assess and reduce the risks.
* * *
BAMKO seeks to build relationships with our suppliers based on mutual benefit, trust, performance, and a joint commitment to continuous improvement. BAMKO requires our suppliers to operate ethically and to comply with all contract terms, laws, and regulations.
BAMKO employs various methods for assessing the risk of slavery and human trafficking in our supply chain, including routine visits to facilities by employees and assessments by third-parties. Many of our supplier’s facilities are assessed by the Worldwide Responsible Accredited Production (WRAP) program, which is an independent, non-profit organization dedicated to the certification of lawful, humane, and ethical manufacturing throughout the world. BAMKO also conducts periodic announced and unannounced audits and visits of suppliers’ facilities and requires suppliers, when possible, to be certified by an independent organization.
If needed, we work with our suppliers to develop a corrective action plan to address gaps or vulnerabilities. A supplier’s failure to comply with our expectations regarding slavery and human trafficking will result in termination of the supplier relationship. BAMKO places responsibility on our employees as well. Our employees are required to report anything they observe or discover that indicates our standards are not being met. Every employee is expected to be an active proponent of our principles. Employees who fail to comply with our expectations are subject to disciplinary action, up to and including termination of employment. To minimize the risk of this occurring, our long-term goals include educating our employees involved in supply chain management as to the risks of slavery and human trafficking.

How to protect your dog from ticks? How to treat a dog from ticks? – Tips
“- People have forgotten this truth, – said the Fox, – but you do not forget: you are forever responsible for everyone you have tamed. You are responsible for your rose.
– I am responsible for my rose … – repeated the little prince, in order to better remember. ”(Antoine de Saint-Exupery“ The Little Prince ”)
In the spring, when the snow melts and the temperature rises steadily, the endless battle of dog owners with ticks resumes. Its price is the life and health of our four-legged pets.
Why are ticks dangerous?
The danger of ticks is that they are carriers of diseases such as piroplasmosis (babesiosis) and Lyme disease (borreliosis). Infection does not occur at the time of the bite, but after a few hours. This is due to the fact that the tick crawls over the body of the animal for some time, from 1-2 to 5 hours, looking for the most vulnerable place for a bite.
I’ve already talked about the dangers of ticks, but you can read about it again here.
What remedies exist Nowadays, veterinary pharmacies and pet shops offer a large selection of various remedies for protecting dogs from blood-sucking insects. It could be
Let’s talk about them in more detail.
Vaccination does not protect your pet from being bitten, but it does help build immunity against piroplasmosis and Lyme disease. There are two vaccines for piroplasmosis for dogs – “Pirodog” and “Nobivak Piro”. The disadvantage of vaccines is that the immunity that they form is weak, and it is not enough to talk about full-fledged protection against infection. Vaccination is justified by the fact that the disease is easier and the survival of the dog after infection is guaranteed. And this is important. Vaccination is carried out annually, and in the case of an increased number of ticks and a high risk of infection – every six months.
There are restrictions on vaccinations: pregnant and lactating bitches, puppies, elderly dogs must not be vaccinated with caution.
More recently, a new remedy has appeared – pills. It is enough to feed the dog a pill that tastes good and your pet becomes invulnerable to tick bites. The active substance binds to blood plasma and is not excreted from the body for a long time. The tablet protects not only from external parasites, but also from subcutaneous pathogens of demodicosis.
One of the drugs that has managed to establish itself on the market is Bravecto
“Bravecto” is a chewable tablet with a pleasant aroma and taste to protect dogs from fleas and ticks.
Bravecto acts on fleas, ixodid ticks, subcutaneous ticks (demodectic mange), itch ticks (sarcoptic mange) and ear mites (otodectic mange).
One Bravecto tablet helps protect your dog from fleas and ticks for 12 weeks (Bravecto Instructions for Use).
Bravecto is used for all breeds of dogs from 2 kg and puppies from 8 weeks of age. The dog can be touched, stroked, walked immediately after the animal has eaten the pill.It can also be washed and bathed, even with shampoo! Children and other animals can contact your pet without restrictions.
How does Bravecto work? After giving the dog Bravecto®, the active ingredient is absorbed and distributed throughout the dog’s body, protecting the entire body of the animal, including the most vulnerable areas (inner surface of the ears, armpits, between the paws, stomach, groin area).
Bravecto ® in terms of the degree of impact on the body refers to substances of low hazard and in recommended doses does not have a negative effect on the dog’s body.Can be used in pregnant and lactating dogs under the supervision of a veterinarian.
Overalls, vests, bandanas
In the fight against ticks, clothes impregnated against ticks and other blood-sucking insects can play an important role. Considering the demand of dog breeders, manufacturers offer a variety of models, ranging from bandanas and headbands to full-length jumpsuits. The advantage of anti-mite clothing is that the active ingredient does not get on your pet’s body, but is on the clothing.This reduces the risk of skin allergic reactions.
Bandanas as a means of protection are suitable if the dog does not enter the territory where the ticks have settled. For walking around the city, when the risk of encountering a tick is minimal, you can use a neck band or bandana, they will scare off flies, mosquitoes and other blood-sucking insects that annoy our pets in summer.
In addition, these accessories can be added to an overalls or a vest impregnated with a special anti-mite solution.With a short walk in the green area, such clothes will reliably protect your pet from the attack of ticks, mosquitoes and flies.
It makes sense to use an anti-mite overalls when you and your pet went to the dacha, fishing, to your grandmother in the village or to rest at a camp site for a few days.
Anti-mite overalls are made of light synthetic fabrics with a high cotton content, such fabrics are breathable and moisture repellent. The overalls are provided with horizontal folds-traps, under which a layer of fibrous fabric is sewn, before a walk it can be soaked with an anti-tick agent.Ticks trapped in the folds die under the influence of the drug. Additional protection is provided by elastic bands at the bottom of the legs and at the waist, which prevent parasites from climbing inside the overalls along the legs and reaching the abdomen, groin and armpits. There are models with a hood and a tail cover.
They belong to ineffective means and provide temporary protection. They must be used with caution, because the shampoo can get into the eyes or mucous membranes and cause poisoning.As a means of protection, the shampoo is suitable, for example, for a dog that leads a home lifestyle and almost never goes outside, or for a short trip to an area where there are ticks. Another shampoo should be used when the effect of other protective agents, such as drops, comes to an end.
Considering that shampoo is ineffective, you should not rely only on it.
They have a repellent effect on ticks, which occurs a couple of days after the collar is put on the dog.For more effect, your pet will wear a collar all summer. The collar is replaced with a new one several times per season. When buying a collar, check its validity period and replace it with a new one a few days before the end of this period.
Important! Adjust the collar to fit your pet by cutting off any excess that your dog may accidentally chew and poison.
The principle of the collar is that it is impregnated with substances that destroy ticks, fleas, lice. Slowly released, the substances permeate the coat and skin surface, especially in the head, neck, chest, ears, nape.It is on these zones that ticks cling to in the first place.
Collars should not be used on puppies, pregnant and lactating bitches, sick and elderly dogs.
Another disadvantage of collars is that while protecting the neck, head, chest, they leave the back of the body unprotected – stomach, tail, groin.
IMPORTANT! If you have multiple pets, there is a risk that the collar will be licked or bitten by other pets during play, leading to poisoning.For the same reason, the collar should not be used if there are small children in the house.
Sprays work almost instantly, they are very effective in protecting pets, since they can treat the entire body of a pet, but they have significant drawbacks.
Sprays are applied exclusively in the open air, otherwise both the owner and the pet risk breathing in the poison.
Sprays are difficult to dispense, although the instructions for some products say how many “puffs” you need to make.
There are restrictions on the use of spray for puppies, pregnant and lactating bitches, sick and debilitated dogs.
The disadvantages include the need for repeated treatments.
The most demanded remedy, as they are the most effective and safe for dogs. The drops are convenient to use, they are applied to the withers and along the ridge on the dog’s skin. The action of the drops begins one day after application and lasts about a month.The drops are slowly absorbed into the skin and evenly distributed in it. The poison does not enter the bloodstream, so there is almost no risk of poisoning; some allergy-prone dogs may have a skin reaction.
If you have several pets, be sure to make sure that they do not lick the treated areas on top of each other. For their safety, it is worth treating the dogs in turn and isolating the treated dog for a day so that the drops can be absorbed and the coat dry.
Drops are produced especially for puppies, pregnant and lactating bitches, old dogs.You can pick up the drops according to the weight and even the breed.
Council. If during the period of maximum activity of the ticks the first treatment showed a good result — there were no attacks or bites — use the same remedy for further treatments. So it works on your dog and in your area. If there were bites, then for the next treatments, choose another remedy, and with a different composition. It means that it does not work in this particular area.
When buying drops, pay attention to the expiration date of the drug.Expired or expiring drops will not have the proper protective effect and your pet will remain unprotected!
In addition to using protective equipment, follow simple but effective rules:
- After each walk, carefully examine all areas of your pet’s body, especially those areas that are most often attacked by ticks.
- Remember, the tick moves through the dog’s body for several hours, you have time to find and neutralize the parasite
- Treat your pet with protective agents every 1-2 months.Strictly follow the directions for use of the drops or spray.
- If you intend to be outdoors for a long time, combine pet protection products, for example: drops + overalls, spray + drops, collar + spray.
It is very difficult to protect a puppy from tick attacks, so refrain from walking your puppy in tall grass, in the forest, near bushes, where the risk of attack is high. Use puppy protection.
The number one task of any owner is to protect his pet from tick bites and their consequences as reliably as possible.Unfortunately, most of even the most advertised anti-mite products do not guarantee 100% protection. Therefore, when choosing a drug and methods of protection, it is so important to know and take into account all the pros and cons of each of the available means.

Tips for creating a design and layout for ordering a bandana print
We continue the theme of creating a design for printing on bandanas (start here). Understanding the basic principles of image placement in the layout, and having familiarized yourself with the “theory”, we can move on to “practice” and give an overview of some useful tips arising from the technological features of production
Making bandanas not only better, but also cheaper!
Design talent and the ability to work with graphic programs are completely different concepts and professions, the ideal situation is when these two moments are combined in one person.In our work, we often have to deal with such situations when the resulting layouts contain serious errors. Sometimes these are technological oversights, and sometimes – economic ones … Most often, the following problems are encountered:
- “Economic” error. Its essence lies in the use of a multi-color layout for the production of small editions. When printing bandanas by silk-screen printing with water-based paints, large-size forms are used. The cost of preparing each of them is very tangible and leads to an increase in the cost of products with small circulations.For example, if 100 pieces with a one-color design cost 150 rubles / piece, then with symbols in six colors, their price increases to 245 rubles / piece. Try to minimize the color of the image for a budget advertising medium. For very small batches, sublimated rayon shawls
- “Technology” error – is the use of thin lines in the image. It arises, most often, due to the “virtuality” of the preparation of layouts.Lines less than 0.4mm thick are quite clearly visible on the screen, but virtually indistinguishable even when printed on paper. And the surface of the fabric is not smooth, it has its own texture. Parts of the design that are less than 0.4 mm in size are visible on textiles – it is very difficult, more likely even impossible
can be a financially viable alternative
Further information is offered to your attention that can help you avoid unnecessary mistakes when creating a design and make bandanas beautiful and cheap at the same time
We decorate the layout without increasing the cost
In view of the fact that the cost of manufacturing bandanas with symbols depends mainly on the circulation and the number of printing colors, and any customer would like to minimize it, we recommend that you pay close attention to the color of the image.The circulation is determined by a specific need and, most often, is the value unchanged for each specific order. And the ability to minimize the number of application colors exists very often, except for those cases when there is only one in the layout. Our equipment allows you to print up to eight (inclusive) solid colors and we can use all of them, but we urge you to remember: less color – lower cost. Most logos come in monochrome or monochrome versions. To reduce the cost of products, we recommend using them, especially for small editions.Do not forget that the main advantage of bandanas as an advertising medium lies in their low price
Almost always, any placement of symbols can be decorated with any details without increasing the number of colors used ( example ). When decorating a bandana layout, do not forget that this process must be treated with enthusiasm, but without fanaticism – the original and interesting design should not distract attention from the main information and advertising information (company logo or event name)
In some cases, when creating a design for bandanas or headscarves, it becomes possible to add one exclusive color without increasing the cost of the print run.This “free” color is white ( example , example ). The lack of an increase in the price of circulation due to the appearance of this color is due to the fact that the printing is carried out with water-based inks on bleached fabric. That is, white is not printed, but the color of the material. It is for this reason that it does not affect the price of the product
We have two or three customers with really talented designers on staff. Their abilities allow you to create beautiful layouts using one or two print colors.These customers always have not only attractive bandanas, but also cheap ones!
Solving Thin Line Problems
A separate topic for discussion is the use of thin lines and other elements in designs. All regular customers already know by heart that the minimum thickness of lines and other small objects is 0.4 mm. However, in fact, everyone forgets that this limitation applies not only to lines, but also to the distance (spacing) between them ( example ).This limitation is unambiguously formulated in the technical requirements for layouts. When creating a design, you should be careful about this moment and exclude such details, or minimize their number. We touched on one recommendation for solving this problem in the previous article – do not make used logos and images of a very small size
The second tip to avoid the thin line problem concerns textual information (if any). Try to use sans serif fonts in your design, especially in small text. Even when serif fonts are tolerable and meet the line thickness requirements, the “bridges” in such letters are thinner than 0.4 mm, not to mention that the “serifs” at the ends of adjacent letters actually touch each other, and sometimes they even overlap. And yes – the thickness of the serifs themselves is almost always less than the minimum allowable value. This is true for nine out of ten layouts that use the referenced fonts
Naturally, this advice only works in cases where the serif font is not part of the corporate identity of the client company.The same problem awaits 99% of logos containing the security mark ®, which in most cases turns into a “dirty” dot on the bandana. Most often, customers are aware of this problem and treat it with understanding, however, discussing this with them when creating a layout will not be superfluous
Next, we will discuss the issue of gradients (color transitions from one to another). If you can avoid the use of gradients in the logo, image and design in general when making up a bandana layout – take this chance without hesitation! Variants with the use of “pure” spot colors are always preferable for a number of reasons arising from the technological peculiarities of production
An excursion into technology at the “micro-level” (hide)
The designated moments can take place upon close, close examination and are completely invisible at arm’s length
Printing on bandanas is carried out by silk-screen printing, as a result of which the following factors cannot be ignored:
- The transparency of the ink over the entire area of the image is constant.Gradients are applied by means of raster printing – in the form of dots located at different distances from each other. The more transparency should be, the less frequently the “printed dots” are located ( example )
- The size of the printed dot in silk-screen printing is several times larger than the size of the dots used in printing, it is actually visible to the naked eye. At the time of use of the product, at arm’s length, the drawing or logo looks exactly as it should look, but when viewed “point-blank” the printed dot is visible ( example ).When the customer accepts the finished edition, closely examining the product, these points are visible
- The fabric does not have such a flat and smooth surface as paper, it is a weave of fine threads that has a certain texture, its own “bulges” and “depressions”. When printing, a whole series of dots necessarily fall between the threads from which the material is woven, and becomes invisible. In fact, only those points that fall on the top layer of the fabric, its “bulges” are clearly visible and affect the visual assessment of the application ( example )
- Water-based inks, unlike plastisol inks, do not dry out during application, they are always printed “wet” and dry only after the entire design has been printed.The order in which the colors are applied is determined according to the principle “from light to dark”. A gradient transition from one color to another is practically realized in the form of raster printing (dots) in a darker color on a previously applied light base. When comparing these technological principles together, the physical properties of the fabric must also be taken into account. The first, lighter, color hits a clean, dry surface of the fabric and, coloring it, is absorbed into the surface of the material, causing it to get wet, and the second, darker, color is printed on the wet surface of the fabric.The second paint, falling on previously wet threads, may slightly (not a fact, but possible) drip along wet threads, slightly blurring the clear boundaries of the image
I would like to once again touch upon the issue of the production of bandanas with printing on colored fabrics. For fundamental (hygienic) considerations, disclosed on the page dedicated to these products, we are ready to consider such orders only in two cases:
- When printing in one black color, i. e.because only black water-based paints have the ability to dye 100% of the material of any color, without interfering with the penetration of air through the fabric. That is, a black pattern can be printed with water-based paints on cotton fabrics of any color, while maintaining the ability of the bandana to “breathe” (freely pass air)
- When the area of application of a picture or logo occupies an insignificant part of the total area of the bandanas, i.e. either it is a very small application, or a large drawing, consisting of fine lines.In these cases, there is a theoretical possibility of printing with plastisol inks
If the first option, in the case of compliance with the requirements for layouts, has no “pitfalls”, then in the second they may be present. For those who want to understand and understand all the “subtleties” of this, we will make another excursion into the technology
Possible pitfalls … (hide)
- Printing on colored fabrics with plastisol inks implies the obligatory presence of a “backing”. “Substrate” – the first layer of paint under the entire drawing, usually white, which is dried after application and on which all other colors are printed on top. Substrate drying is carried out by heating to a sufficiently high temperature with a special stove in a pulsed (short-term) mode. With such a temperature effect, the probability of deformation and / or shrinkage of fabric is very high, especially containing synthetic fibers
- As a result of shrinkage, the colors of the image may not fall on the substrate.When shrinking, the size of the fabric may change very slightly, but when thin lines are printed, this is quite enough. Result: from under the color “the substrate sticks out” or the color “falls through” into the material, without hitting the substrate
- The degree of shrinkage of a material depends on the quality and characteristics of the fabric and occurs for a fairly large number of reasons. The main reasons for deformation are changes in the moisture content of the material during heating and its shrinkage as a result of thermal shock. Any canvas is not completely dry, at least its humidity is equal to that of the surrounding air.Under the influence of high temperature and sharp heating, the humidity decreases and the fabric shrinks. Sometimes, when it cools, the material regains its size, but this happens later, after the entire image is printed
- A reasonable question arises: “Why doesn’t this happen when printing on T-shirts?” The answer is simple:
- Firstly, there is a different structure of the weave of the thread in the fabric (“mini-braids”), from which T-shirts are made. This provides “internal compensation” for shrinkage, unlike bandana fabrics, of which in most cases the threads are straight and there is only interlacing of the longitudinal and transverse threads
- Secondly, the fabric of T-shirts is much denser and does not have time to heat up completely during the operation of the impulse drying.Only the upper surface of the material warms up, and the fabric for bandanas is thinner and during the drying operation has time to warm up through and through
- From the above, a conclusion should be drawn: the concept of thin lines, in designs for printing bandanas with plastisol inks, is a relative value. They should not be very thin; ideally, their thickness should be from one to two millimeters. Lines with a thickness of 0.4 mm have a high chance of not hitting the substrate, and lines more than 5 mm wide will severely impede air access to the head
Now the main features of creating layouts for printing on bandanas can be considered fully disclosed.Remember that any design must be treated with all your heart – only in this case you will be able to create good and beautiful products
Memo for those who decided to order the design of bandanas from us. To create it, we need to send logos, images and text information, on the basis of which we need to make a layout and express our wishes, if any. For example, if there are several logos, then we need to understand the degree of importance of each of them, in order to comply with the subordination
We do not promise to draw you two dozen designs, why? As a rule, we make and send for approval two or three options to choose from, but immediately taking into account all the features of the practical use of bandanas, based on more than ten years of experience in the manufacture of these products. In the most layout chosen by you, then we can make the necessary edits in accordance with your wishes
Of course, you can make two dozen options for you called “find the ten differences.” But we do not see much sense in this, especially since two dozen layouts will cost much more. In our opinion, fewer designs, but made with soul, is a much more preferable option

90,000 Do dogs need clothes in winter – Wonderzine
ANSWERS TO MOST OF THE QUESTIONS THAT HAVE ASKED US we are used to searching online.In the new series of materials, we ask just such questions: burning, unexpected or common – to professionals in various fields.
In winter, the cold takes by surprise not only people, but also their dogs. The current variety of dog breeds makes the owners wonder at what temperature they will have to put on a coat on their Chihuahua and whether a down jacket is needed for a fur corgi. We asked the dog behavior correction specialists, the founders of the Pi-Bo school of applied training, the authors of the forthcoming book “Smooth, Love, Praise”, as well as a funny and useful blog about raising tailed beasts, Nadezhda Pigareva and Anastasia Bobkova, how to prevent the animal from freezing and What other positives are there in being addicted to dressing up your dog.
dog behavior and mental health specialists and creators of PiBo
The temptation of the owners to dress up their dog is quite understandable. A sweet woolen friend is almost like a child – unless you deny yourself the pleasure of buying him a jumpsuit in a cheerful color, when all the pet stores are overwhelmed with this good. Fortunately, a useful and comfortable suit will come in handy for a dog of any breed – be it the American Hairless Terrier or the Chow Chow, famous for its “impenetrable” fur.
In winter, of course, clothes for insulation are relevant.All sorts of down jackets and fur blankets are able to warm dogs, which, due to their belonging to a certain breed, are not adapted to the harsh Russian climate. This applies to decorative and short-haired breeds. But do not dress up the dog “by default” – it is important to monitor its condition in the cold and even temper it so that the pet can withstand a short walk without additional accessories. The condition of the dog can be determined by the temperature of the ears. Normally, they are a little cool, but it’s worth running for a new thing if you notice that the dog’s ears become icy at a certain air temperature outside.
The Moscow climate in autumn and winter, unfortunately, presupposes not only cold but also mud. Owners of shaggy dogs know what it means to wash a dog after the next walk, so they also buy clothes, but not insulated, but protective. Waterproof overalls provide excellent protection against splashes in case of bad weather, and blankets will prevent rain from wetting the thick coat on the back of some hairy collie that will take too long to dry. At the same time, it is important not to interfere with natural heat exchange and choose clothes made of technological materials that allow air to pass through well.
Some tailed beasts also need protection from the sun. We are talking about dogs without hair, whose skin can burn under ultraviolet light. Such guys must keep light T-shirts and sweaters in the wardrobe so that they can walk without problems in the summer heat.
In general, clothes are chosen not only on the basis of a specific breed of dog, but also taking into account its individual characteristics. For example, Labradors are considered by default those comrades who would only find the dirtiest puddle and roll in it.But even among them there are delicate daisies that will not walk in the rain for more than three minutes. Accordingly, protective overalls will come in handy for the first, and the latter can easily go naked all their lives.
But no matter who you choose a new suit – it is worth considering how comfortable the dog will be in the clothes. Check for bulging seams along the tender areas of the dog’s torso. They can chafe the armpits or abdomen if positioned incorrectly or if the jumpsuit is too small. Short-footed and overly energetic animals will most likely do better in a blanket.She has no sleeves and sits loosely enough not to chafe or hinder movement. But if the dog behaves like a bulldozer in the snow, whole snowdrifts can form under the blanket without a collar during the walk, which also does not contribute to the dog’s comfort.
Safety boots and bee suit
For beauty, no doctrine prohibits dressing dogs either. But it is important that the dog is accustomed to any clothes. He doesn’t care what his new bee costume looks like, but he is far from indifferent to the owner’s praise for wearing this costume so proudly.And the sincere admiration of passers-by also inspires – dogs very well recognize such emotions in their address. During the first try-ons, it is important to praise and treat the dog, letting him know that he is the most beautiful on earth in these plastic wings. And only after she stops trying to rip off her clothes, you can go out in all this.
But you don’t need to use shoes unnecessarily and just for beauty. Dogs are not very comfortable in it, the usual grip of the paws with the surface is lost due to the hidden claws.Dog boots and boots should be bought if there is a real danger of damaging the animal’s paws with reagents or if it is known for sure that the dog cannot walk normally, because it constantly tightens the frozen paws. Insulated waterproof boots will help against cold weather. They will also protect against reagents. But if the dog does not freeze, instead of shoes, special balls made of dense rubber (for example, such) will do. They are well fixed on the paws. In addition, having reached the place for a walk in the park, having reached the place of walking in the park, they can be removed, giving the dog the opportunity to run without restrictions.These balls help well and protect the paw wounded by the dog, if it is in bandages and cannot be wet and dirty. But it is worth knowing that they are suitable for animals with a decent manicure, because too long claws can break through the material from which the blotches are made.
Passers-by and fashion police
Dog clothing has one subtle bonus that has nothing to do with protecting the dog from cold, rain or heat. With its help, you can change the attitude of others to your animal. Owners of dogs of “formidable” breeds will not let you lie – on walks they often hear something like “they have bred killer dogs, and now they will eat all our children.”Although their cute bull terrier has been working as a nanny for the owner’s baby all his life, he takes the kittens across the road and plays merrily with the old ladies.
Nice clothes will help to reduce the intensity of such passions. She is able to make a “killer dog” out of a sweet kid, whom she urgently wants to stroke, and not a district policeman to call to eliminate the “danger”. If you have a large dog, especially black or brindle, choose brightly colored suits with fun prints. Any Doberman in a pink frog t-shirt looks a little less threatening than naked.So there is much less chance of running into the disapproval of passers-by in the park, who believe that large dogs do not belong there. And who will find the strength to scold a dog dressed up in rhinestones and ruffles? It is very difficult to believe that such a stylish friend can be an aggressor, and not a mother’s berry.
Another useful dog accessory for this purpose is bandanas. They help to emphasize the peacefulness of the dog, if he is too shaggy to wear T-shirts in hot summer. Any colored kerchief on the neck of the Russian Black Terrier will not only allow him to be irresistible in the eyes of his own mummy, but also motivate passers-by to take a photo as a souvenir instead of going around him for two blocks with swearing.Maybe this is a so-so alternative, but it’s better than explaining to everyone he meets that the dog is well-bred and not dangerous.
Doggy Power dressing
Some dog clothes have a therapeutic effect, and it is especially relevant on New Year’s Eve, when all pet owners froze in anxious anticipation of fireworks. Many dogs are terrified of such loud sounds and spend every New Year’s holidays shaking under the bathroom. Soothing blankets like a thundershirt or any tight-fitting T-shirt or sweatshirt will help these guys.These clothes have a so-called soothing cuddle effect. It was studied on farm animals by the American professor of animal husbandry Temple Grandin. She also invented a “hugging machine” in which she herself escaped in moments of stress, which often visits her due to her autism spectrum disorder.
These clothes can be used both indoors and outdoors to reduce the effects of stress on dogs who are very afraid of loud noises. Fear cannot, of course, be cured by it, but it will turn out to be a little “calm” of the dog in panic and not bring the matter to a heart attack.On the Web, you can find information about soothing bandaging for dogs, which also imitates hugs. And everyone needs hugs when it’s scary.

90,000 Imaging has shown how masks prevent the spread of coronavirus
Scientists from the Atlantic University of Florida (USA) have compared several types of masks on how they prevent the spread of coronavirus. The study is published in the journal Physics of Fluids, and LiveScience writes about it briefly.
Three types of masks participated in the experiment: a two-layer cotton, one-layer homemade bandana-type mask, and a non-sterile pharmacy mask in the form of a cone. They were selected based on their availability to the mass consumer.
“We hope this visualization will help inform recommendations for social distancing and the use of face masks,” said study author Siddhartha Verma, assistant professor of oceanic and mechanical engineering at Florida Atlantic University.
During the experiment, a hand pump and a smoke generator were inserted into the dummy’s head to simulate sneezing and coughing. To detect droplets when the dummy “sneezes” and “coughs”, scientists used a laser and mapped the path of the droplets. Thus, they found out how different structures and materials change their route.
Scientists have found that open cough drops (when a person is not wearing a mask) can travel more than 3.5 m in 50 seconds. With a bandana, they spread over a distance of 1 m, with a folded cotton scarf, approximately 40 cm, and with a cone-shaped mask, only 20 cm.The droplets spread less than 10 cm through the tightly sewn cotton mask.
Although the masks tested are not perfect, they can still contain larger droplets. “Awareness of effective methods of protection is extremely important, especially when spikes in cases of coronavirus infection are recorded in many states,” concluded Verma.
Earlier, scientists found out how long the coronavirus can remain on masks.
Across the Ocean – Solar Powered
On April 14, Moscow hosted a presentation of a joint project of the League of Stakes company and the legendary Russian traveler Fyodor Konyukhov (Red Fox team) – the world’s first single passage across the Pacific Ocean on a solar-powered NOVA catamaran.
Fedor Konyukhov once again challenged the sea element and human capabilities.He will have to cover 9,000 nautical miles (more than 16,500 km) in autonomous navigation in the Pacific Ocean from the coast of Chile to Australia. A Russian traveler will spend more than 100 days alone in the open ocean, walking an average of 3,000 nautical miles a month.
The start of the crossing from the port city of Valparaiso (Chile), located at 35 degrees South latitude, is scheduled for December 2021. The “roaring forties” of the South Pacific requires careful study of weather forecasts and careful selection of the starting “window,” says Fedor Konyukhov.- It is necessary to wait for an extensive anticyclone, with sunny weather and moderate winds. Such conditions will allow us to safely move away from the coast of South America. ”
Further, the route runs in the cold and powerful Humboldt Current, which carries its waters from the shores of Antarctica towards the equator. The voyage will take place along South America for several weeks. Coming to the traverse of the city of Lima (Peru), the traveler will turn west and head for the islands of French Polynesia. This segment is relatively calm: trade winds, favorable winds.From French Polynesia, the skipper will go through a maze of islands on the way to Australia.
The port of Brisbane (the administrative center of the state of Queensland) was chosen as the place of finish.
It is impossible to stock up on enough fresh water for a journey of up to 100 days, so a solar-powered seawater desalination plant is installed on board. The traveler’s diet consists of several types of freeze-dried food – light, high-calorie, proven in many expeditions.
During the crossing, Fedor Konyukhov will keep a video diary and conduct environmental monitoring of the ocean for the presence of plastic waste in seawater. The catamaran will be equipped with a special flow-through installation and a set of replaceable filters that can capture plastic microparticles ranging in size from 200 microns to 1.5 mm and more. The collected samples and video materials will be transferred for study and interpretation to the scientific partner of the expedition – the Institute of Oceanology named after P.P. Shirshov of the Russian Academy of Sciences.
Catamaran NOVA is a small ocean-class double-hulled vessel, 11 meters long and 7 meters wide, capable of speeds up to 5-7 knots. The power plant of the unique vessel is completely electric and does not pollute the ocean and atmosphere.
Heterostructure solar modules manufactured by the Russian company Hevel with a total area of 66 square meters, installed on the deck and side surfaces of the floats, provide highly efficient accumulation of direct and diffused sunlight with an efficiency of up to 22%.The onboard energy storage system, consisting of 26 lithium iron phosphate batteries and all the necessary equipment for converting, managing and storing solar energy, was developed with the support of Enel X, the global business line of the Italian Enel group.
The catamaran is driven by two electric motors with a maximum power of up to 3 kW with drives on fully submerged fixed-pitch propellers.
The hull of the catamaran with a displacement of 2.2 tons is made of Russian composite materials based on carbon fiber manufactured by Umatex.This solution allows to reduce the weight of the case by 40% (compared to similar housings made of fiberglass or aluminum) and provide a 20% advantage in strength.
The NOVA catamaran was designed by the famous British designer Phil Morrison, who previously created three rowboats for Fedor Konyukhov’s ocean crossings in the Atlantic and Pacific Ocean. Designed storm resistance – 8 points on the Beaufort scale, which provides an almost unlimited navigation area.
“This is the first sea-going ocean-going vessel under the Russian flag that can operate in unmanned mode. The duration of autonomous navigation reaches six months, the range is unlimited. Modern technologies make it possible to conduct various observations, take photos and videos, take water samples and carry out measurements without human intervention. Thanks to this, NOVA can successfully function even in the most difficult natural conditions and zones of man-made disasters.We will also use solar energy in the conquest of the air ocean in the project by Fyodor Konyukhov and Mikhail Lifshits “Albatross: a non-stop flight around the world”, emphasizes Oskar Konyukhov, head of the Expeditionary Headquarters.
