All Things Bakelite: The Invention of Plastics

All Things Bakelite: The Invention of Plastics – a documentary at the Mark Twain Library, Redding, Connecticut.  A little history of this extraordinary substance.

In 1907, a determined chemist named Leo H. Baekeland created a new synthetic substance that could not be easily classified. He called the substance – a synthetic plastic — Bakelite. A provocative documentary on Baekeland All Things Bakelite: The Invention of Plastics will be presented by his great-grandson, Redding’s Hugh Karraker, on Saturday, April 16 at 3 p.m. at the Mark Twain Library.

The film by John Maher explores the life and work of Baekeland, the “father of modern plastics,” who was responsible for one of the most transformative discoveries of the 20th century. The primary source and impetus for this illuminating was Karraker, who is the film’s executive producer.

“I wanted to celebrate Baekeland’s life,” Karraker said. “His invention had a huge impact on our lives, but little is generally known about him.”

The film is indeed a celebration of Baekeland—his genius, his innovation, and of a progressive era in America that defined the nation. Karraker spent over ten years researching his great-grandfather’s life, and had access to his mother’s notes on Baekeland’s meticulous collection of 62 diaries. Karraker brought all this to filmmaker John Maher and the result is an hour-long film that is a both a joyous and a provocative exploration of a subject relevant to everyone.

Maher makes history come alive as he weaves interviews with Karraker and other family members with beautifully realized period re-enactments of Baekeland—seen as a curious boy growing up in Ghent, Belgium, then as a persistent chemist and inventor in New York, and later as an old man reflecting on the toll that running the business of the Bakelite Corporation had taken on his life. Archival footage, intimate family photos, and first-person accounts transport us back to the dawn of the modern age when individuals like Baekeland, Thomas Edison, Henry Ford and others led a revolution of innovation with their inventions.

Lovin Summer Beach Tent Canopy Sun Max UV Protection Portable Light Aussie VIDEO

Lovin Summer 1Beach lovers rejoice – chic and simple sun protection is now a whole lot more stylish! Chicest way to stay sunburn-free on the beach.   We just saw these introduced at the NY gift show and were so impressed with this Australian design for a lightweight, portable beach tent with canvas fabric delivering 99% UV protection. Newly available in the United States.

SO much better than cumbersome beach Lovi Summer 2umbrellas, this compact beach tent weighs just 9 pounds and offers up to 10 square feet of shade.  Allows natural air flow (so you can be safe AND enjoy fresh-air breezes) compared to pop-up tents, and a clear line of sight up & down beach, so important if you are keeping an eye on young children.

You can easily adjust the tent to move with the sun so you can stay protected all day.

Easily assembled by one person in just a few simple steps; under 5 minutes according to designer (who sets his up in 2 minutes!) No complicated knots or confusing instructions like other pop-up beach tents.  WATCH VIDEO below to see the instructions on setting it up quickly & efficiently.

Dimensions: 6’4″ x 6’4″ x 38″
100% cotton canvas with Ultraviolet Protection Factor of 40
Aluminum poles
Lightweight matching carrying bag included
Assembles in minutes
Great airflow and sun protection
Use on beach or grass, backyard or park
Includes beach tent, pegs, mallet, carry bag.

Two upright and one top cross poles – each made of sturdy aluminum – form the basic frame. The canvas stretches across, and corner ropes are already attached for ease of setup. Secure the ropes to the ground with the included guy rope clips, polycarbonate sand pegs, and polycarbonate mallet. Ten eyelets on the canvas are double-stitched for maximum strength, and webbing around the edge of the entire canvas offers reinforcement.
