Is bear spray effective against other animals?

Is bear spray (pepper spray specially formulated to be effective against bear attacks) effective against other animals, especially mountain lions or wolves? Or is there something in it specifically targeted towards bears that would make it less effective on other attacking animals?

Intermittent Bottomless Filter Spray — Any Suggestions?

I have a Rancilio Silvia and a Breville Conical Burr Grinder. We roast our own beans using a Behmor 1600, and typically do kinda light roasts. Very often, regardless of the bean, roast, packing pressure, or grind size (as far as I can tell), our bottomless filter sprays coffee all over the place. Occasionally, it works fine, but the vast majority of the time it sprays at angles that I thought were impossible (i.e. approaching 90˚ to vertical). Has anyone had this experience and do you have any suggestions for fixing it (or even troubleshooting it)?

Neighbor uses cans of spray paint on his car – can it travel to my car?

I have a crazy neighbor in my apartment complex that spray paints his car instead of washing it.

I have a 2013 car with a nice paint job from factory when I bought it new. It has a nice clear shiny look to it.

The other day I found my neighbor spray painting his tires and other parts of his car while my car as right next to his in the parking lot.

He uses spray paint cans that you buy at the store. Can his aresoal travel far enough to get on my car and ruin the clear shiny look on my car?

Stainless steel spray coating

I’m using spray gun with automatic reciprocator system to coloring stainless steel sheet with some translucent lacquer. However, I found the color is unevenly sprayed and can’t figure why is it uneven.

I’ve tried several ways including:
1.Different distance between spray gun and the steel sheet.
2.Different angle of the spray gun.
3.Moving speed of the spray gun.
4.Spray times and spray volume.
5.Air pressure of the spray gun.
6.Pressure of the lacquer.
7.Different temp and humidity.(64F~85F, 3X%~7X%)
8.Different spray gun.(Iwata LPA-200 and other locally manufactured spray gun.)
9.Cleaning the gun.

It looks like blushing but I think it’s not blushing because the following reason:
1. Situation gets better when I tune the air pressure higher while it is believed to be worse if it’s blushing.
2.I also tried different temp and humidity.(64F~85F, 3X%~7X%)
3.I’ve tried to heat up the steel sheet to about 85F-90F before spray but still in vain.

Is there anybody know the reason?


Update

  1. I’ve cleaned it with Acetone before painting.
  2. For the plate surface, I’m using hairline or “fine bead blasting” plate, not mirror(No.8) plate.

Migrating a Grails application to Scala Play/Spray

We have a moderately sized Grails web application using GORM/Hibernate over PostgreSQL and GSPs serving HTML, and also a few REST APIs. We are standardising on Scala, and would like to migrate this application to Play or Spray, with Slick to access the existing database.

Nimble is currently used for authentication/authorisation and user/role/etc. management.

What are the approaches we can take in order to do the migration step by step, avoiding a big bang migration?

They are both JVM languages, is there a way to avoid treating them as separate web apps running on separate ports at arms length?

16″ Pop-up Spray Heads

Are 16 ” high pop-up spray heads available? I have a 12″ high pop-up spray head positioned 3′ from a rose bush. It sprays forefully into the small rose bush (15″ – 18″ high). I prefer not to move the head, the spray covers the rest of the plants in the mulched bed. What I would like to do is leave the head in that location and simply change the 12″ pop-up spray head to a 16″ (or higher if available) thereby raising the spray height so it doesn’t spray forcefully into the small rose bush.
