The Social Rewind for July 28, 2014

Are you subscribed to multiple social media networks like we are? Do you find it difficult it to keep up with all of the updates from the people you follow? Do you feel like you’re missing a lot of good information?

“The Social Rewind,” is a weekly blog digest of what we thought were the most interesting, funny, or informational social media posts of the previous week. Q Source follows some really fascinating companies and individuals on Twitter, Facebook & Google+ and we want to share the best of what they have to say.

Leading off this week, Zebra Technologies shared this post about using RFID tags to track bees. Busy as a bee? Honey, you ain’t seen nothin’ yet!

Ever wonder why you can’t use your cell phone in a hospital? TE Connectivity’s John Spindler explains it all in this post.

Does contemplating gravity feel like the weight of the universe is on your chest? The National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) lightens the load with their post about the frustrating attempts at measuring gravity.


Work can be stressful enough on its own, why make it more so by uttering the three phrases mentioned in this post by Workrite Ergonomics?


Mom always said not to play with our food. We think she’d be okay with it though if she saw Laughing Squids post about these tater tots made to look like Tetris shapes.


And we close out this week’s column with our post focusing on Atrix’ new vacuums with LED indicator lights.


There you have it…another quick look at a few of last week’s most interesting social media posts. We hope you enjoyed this week’s Social Rewind. We’d love it if you shared other interesting blog posts with us. Keep on reading! We’re look forward to continuing The Social Rewind through 2014. This is an exciting year for us as we celebrate our 30th anniversary. Keep your eyes open for new features, promotions, interviews, and more. See you next week!

New Atrix Vacuums, Kit Add LED Indicator Light for Safer Operation

Atrix International has released new vacuums and an add-on kit featuring an indicator light to warn of potential filter overflows. Aimed at providing a safety feature to avoid hazardous materials overflowing from the vacuum filter, the new indicator light is available on the Atrix VACHFIL Omega Plus Abatement Vacuum w/HEPA Filter & Light Kit, VACGFIL Omega Green Supreme Vacuum w/HEPA Filter & Light Kit, and as the FILKIT Full Filter Indicator Light Kit for Omega Series & High-Capacity Vacuums.

The red LED filter indicator light warns when the filter is reaching full capacity, helping you avoid potential dangers of materials like lead dust, mold spores, asbestos, etc. escaping from the filter. Changing the filter at the right time will also protect the lifespan of the vacuum, save on filter costs, and boost filter efficiency.

VACHFIL OMEGA PLUS ABATEMENT VACUUM W/HEPA FILTER & LIGHT KIT

This portable Omega Plus Vacuum is made of durable, high-impact Starex flame-retardant polymer, has built-in over-heat protection, and features a self-contained HEPA filter cartridge that traps hazardous particulates. The Filter Full Indicator Light complies with British Standard No. 8520. The quiet, yet powerful, VACHFIL includes a hose plug, utility nozzle, utility brush, 6' clear hose, crevice tool/brush, and 16" flexible wand.

As with the VACHFIL, the Filter Full Indicator Light complies with British Standard No. 8520.

The FILKIT Full Filter Indicator Kit allows the Omega Plus, Omega Supreme Plus, Omega Green Series, Omega MRI Series and Omega Cleanroom Series Vacuums to be equipped with the new red LED warning light. As previously mentioned, the light illuminates as the filter approaches full capacity and meets British Standard Number 8520, which applies to all fine-filtered HEPA and ULPA vacuums used with hazardous materials. Please note: The FILKIT must be ordered at the time of purchase of an Omega Series or High-Capacity Vacuums.
