Quotes

"A lot of people will release balloons after a party, but they don't realize that the metal in the balloon conducts electricity and can bring down a power line" Sarkissian said
"We shake our martinis until our hands stick to the tin..." promised Beth Hobbs, manager and chief bartender, whose staff gets rigorous training before taking to the rail
"Some adhesives, however, may have difficulty bonding to glass (e g., the cover) or to metal (e g., the enclosure). To improve the bond provided by the adhesive, an ink layer can be provided over the adhesive. For example, an ink layer can be applied to the ring around the periphery of the cover such that the ink layer is between the cover and the adhesive (which is placed in contact with the enclosure). In some cases, a filter or coating can be applied to the cover ForFor example, an infrared filter can be applied to a surface of the cover. Then, a second ink layer can be placed between the cover and the infrared filter to improve the adhesive of the infrared filter to the cover. The enclosure and cover can be heated to improve the bond provided by the adhesive. The enclosure and cover can be secured within a fixture, which can be constructed from silicon, to be heated."
