The DIY crafting movement certainly isn’t anything new. From independently published magazines like ReadyMade, which launched back in 2001, to mainstream do-it-yourself media icons like Martha Stewart, who has been teaching Americans to flex their crafting muscles for decades, home crafting has gone from being a near-necessity, to a trend, to an incredibly popular activity that people of all ages and nearly all interests seem to be taking part in these days.

For most true motorcycle enthusiasts, there’s simply nothing quite like the experience of getting out on the open road. There’s the sun overhead. The wind whipping by. The road stretching out before you in a never-ending ribbon of possibilities.
However, if you have a GPS device or LCD display radio panel, your leisurely ride can quickly turn into a struggle, and perhaps even a dangerous situation. Continue reading If you Ride a Motorcycle, the DayVue Film Is a Must-Have Accessory for your GPS or Radio Display
Whether you use a Smartphone, a tablet or an e-reader, there’s a pretty good chance that if you’re like most Americans, you spend a lot of time on your mobile device. You use it in so many conditions: cold weather and warm weather; indoors and out-of-doors.
And yet while the technology of these devices continues to develop at a mind-boggling pace, and with an increasing number of features and applications launched seemingly every other day, one thing seems to remain the same: screen glare. The inability to clearly see your screen, that is, as a result of the reflection of sun light or artificial light.
Of course, there are other seemingly insurmountable problems where mobile devices are concerned: smudges, scratches, and dirt, to name just a few. There is perhaps nothing more frustrating than trying to read an important text message or email while you’re outdoors, and being unable to see it because of glare or a smudged screen.
Scratches are another big problem. Not only do they hamper your view of the screen, but they also prevent you from potentially selling your phone back to your carrier of choice when you upgrade, a move that can save you money on your next device.
And if you read on your tablet? Glare, in that instance, becomes an even bigger issue. Meanwhile, forget about reading outdoors, or even near a window. It’s not happening!
As technology continues its expansion into more and more facets of life, churches are increasingly beginning to turn towards it for help in spreading their message. Emails and social media, for instance, help keep the flock in the loop of the church community. Large LCD screens are replacing traditional bulletin boards.
And yet, as churches continue finding new uses for technology, they’re also discovering the problems that technology can introduce.
Consider, for example, a megachurch that uses a collection of digital LCD screens to give parishioners a better view of the pastor. Both natural and artificial light can cause debilitating screen glare, which in turn can easily inhibit the spread of the good word. In fact, that’s almost exactly what happened recently in the North Carolina legislative chamber, where a number of very expensive Sharp digital TV monitors were reduced to little more than mirrors as a result of screen glare.
Fortunately, NuShield was able to help out in that situation. If your church is running into similar problems, we can help fix your situation, too.
