From Sun to Snow: Climate Anxiety in St. Andrews

Rivaa explores the impact this week’s changeable weather is having on students’ mental health.

After a lovely long weekend of 15-degree weather, extra scoops of Janetta’s and a plethora of picnics, the weather seems to have taken a sharp but definite turn for the worse. Not only has today seen a return to temperatures colder than even last months, but apparently it’s only going to get worse. Though here in St Andrews we only have an extremely rainy (and gloomy) week predicted, Glasgow is forecasted to have 6cm of snow this week, with places in the North-East being particularly cold and amber weather warnings even being cautioned.

Climate change is, unfortunately, the most probable culprit for this wishy-washy weather. Scotland is more climate conscious than, well, most places, having an aspiration for net-zero carbon greenhouse gas emissions by 2045 as well as an ever-increasing reliance on renewable energy sources like wind power. Nonetheless, climate anxiety is always in the air and this recent weather instability is only making people more stressed, especially when accompanied by looming deadlines. 

How exactly are we meant to stop our planet crumbling between our fingers? There’s only so much clean eating, waiting for buses and desperately trying to sort out your trash into plastics, cans and papers one can do. In contrast to these anxieties, St Andrews was a much lighter, more positive place on the weekend, when people were flocking to East Sands and the Quad without a care in the world. Even though the few sunny days were only a temporary thing, it was fun to distract ourselves and pretend society and nature as we know it isn’t on the verge of collapse.

Everyone knows about how seasons affect our moods and how colder temperatures equal sadder students but climate change is especially an effective student killjoy. 73% of students at Bristol, cite climate change as a source of so much tension and angst for them that their studies and grades have gone to hell and statistics are most likely similar or worse, here. It’s not even just the wild temperature shifts causing this anxiety – it’s that, on top of UCU strikes, exam dates and just general personal problems, climate change denial still exists, yes, even in Scotland where we’re more on the ball regarding global warming in general.

Moreover, there feels like a weight upon students, on top of our already bucketloads of burdens, to take individual action against climate change, raising arms against this intangible imminent doom. As aforementioned, little-to-nothing can be done with individual acts combating climate change; at most what we can do is to either a) shut our eyes and lose ourselves in brief moments of escape under the sublime sunny weekend we just had or b) try as much as we can to alleviate others and our own desperate eco anxiety by spreading positivity and calm, as cheesy and ineffective as both those options sound. 

Nevertheless, I hope we as a student community can try and hold onto all the spells of sunlight we can in our lives, no matter how annoyingly temporary they always are. If you’re ever particularly struggling with climate-related stress though, don’t hole yourself up in your flat crying about the 4-degree weather but try and check out one of the Wednesday eco-anxiety cafes, involve yourself in the efforts of all our environmental society like Transition St Andrews and just try and spread positive, warm vibes to the people around you, despite the contrary weather.

  1. Its such as you learn my mind! You seem to understand a lot
    about this, like you wrote the ebook in it or something.
    I feel that you could do with some percent to force the message house a little
    bit, but instead of that, this is fantastic blog.

    A great read. I’ll certainly be back.

    Knowing suitable metal is essential for you to understand how to engrave metal. Fiber lasers are most suitable for marking all types of brass, copper, aluminum, stainless steel and nickel-plated metals, as well as engineering plastics such as polycarbonate. Aluminum is one of the best and most common metals used in metal engraving machines, and brass and copper are also ideal because both copper and brass have good heat transfer capabilities. Tungsten and cemented carbide are the hardest metals on earth, so engraving or etching is generally not recommended. Here are some metals that you can engrave with a high-efficiency fiber laser engraving machine. 80w laser engraver and 60w laser cutter​​​​​​​.

    BEST LASER CUTTER COMPARISON GUIDE

    Monport has swiftly established itself as a reliable name in this industry. Their machines are available in various configurations, ranging from Desktop 40W models to high-powered 150W units to even flashy Fiber Laser Markers. Each Monport laser engraver is designed to combine straightforward operation with powerful functionality, allowing you to create spectacular.

    MACHINE POWER
    Monport also has a range of laser cutter machines with different power outputs depending on the size and level of engraving you want to achieve. We’re looking at the Monport today, which packs 150W of power — the most powerful of all lasers. This extra wattage means you can cut thicker materials and engrave deeper. But the biggest benefit — you’ll be able to achieve the same laser effects at lower power settings, meaning your laser tube should laser longer! It’s optimized for cutting and engraving, and the laser tube has an operating life of up to 12,000 hours.

  30. The primary benefits of fiber laser engraver and engraving over other types of machined marking are due to there being no physical contact between the laser and the product meaning tool wear is no longer an issue and replacement tooling is not required, thereby cutting down on the longer term costs of marking products.

    Laser etching also allows for more intricate patterns to be created whether these be images, bar codes or written information and it offers better contrast over machined markings. Laser engraving can also offer deeper cut engravings which are more resistant to abrasion and are quicker to produce when compared to machine engraving saving on production time. Laser operating is also considered safer than machine marking for the operators.

    Monport specializes in Fiber Laser Engraver, we currently have 20W, 30W,50W fiber laser engraver, The Sino-Galvo delivers the laser beam with incredible speed and a much higher degree of accuracy than a regular CO2 laser. Its extreme stability ensures quick scanning, engraving, and project turn around.

  31. What is fiber laser engraving? Well, if you have ever used a lens to make a fire, then you probably know that the lens focuses light from the sun and converts it into heat that can cause burning. Similarly, the fiber laser engraving machine generates strong light at the end of the fiber optic cable, and then generates a powerful laser beam. Then use this beam to engrave (or even cut) patterns on different materials.

  47. What can fiber lens do for you?
    In recent years, laser marking technology has become one of the largest application fields of laser processing. Its characteristics of high marking speed, clear writing, strong anti-counterfeiting function and low pollution have attracted widespread attention in the industry. And works near the focal plane of the objective lens. This lens is called F- θ Lens.

    In the marking system, the laser beam passes through F-θ Lens system and will produce off-axis deflection. An abnormal image or distortion will appear on the mark surface with respect to the ideal plane. In brief, the laser beam is irradiated by F-θ, then the lens scatters to form a relatively fixed focal length and mark range. For example, our usual laser marking range is 100mm x 100mm. If you want to mark a wider range of content, you need to replace the f-theta lens with a wider range of marks.

    Different types of galvanometer
    F- θ The lens is more expensive because it is processed so that the light beam will try to be perpendicular to the workpiece and the focus is almost the same throughout the process field. However, for non critical tolerances, the actual “laser mark” position and focus are more predictable.

    Non f- θ lens is cheaper, and when the beam leaves the lens, the light beam resembles a pendulum, so changes in the focus away from the field the center of the flied are to be expected. In addition, the position of the laser marker will shift due to the difference in focus.

  51. CO2 Laser Engraving in Clothing Industry
    Due to the popularity of various personalized clothes, laser engraving is becoming more and more popular among fashion designers who want to create unique designs. With the development of the clothing industry, all kinds of materials can be used in clothing, not only cloth or leather, but also some other metal materials or plastic materials can be reflected in some clothing. A laser engraving machine can meet your various customized needs. Laser engraving is a good way to create a brand for your small clothing enterprises. You can use laser machine to brand your products, as well as your events. Many people use laser machine for this purpose, so don’t be afraid to do it yourself!

    Among the numerous clothing production machines, why is the laser engraving machine increasingly becoming the choice of many designers and niche designer brands ? The engraving process of laser cutter is better than screen printing, embroidery, heat transfer and vinyl, because it is permanent and lasts for a long time. When you use a laser cutter, your design will be burned into the fabric or leather, so it will not peel off like other types of printing. Your design will also look clear, rather than blurring or fading over time as other methods do.

    Compared with traditional patterns of printing, jacquard, embroidery and other fabrics, laser etching patterns have many advantages. The traditional fabric weaving process has high cost, complex process and high price, while the laser carving fabric pattern operation process is simple and fast. A simple pattern can be completed in 5 minutes, saving time and labor, and the cost is also low. The most important thing is that the pattern of laser engraved fabric really meets the customer’s “private customization” requirements. One or two pieces can be completed immediately, unlike printing and jacquard, which generally require mass production. It is no exaggeration to say that CO2 lasers have proven to be the most suitable technology for the fashion industry.

    By using a very extensive and efficient laser marking process on fabrics, you can achieve all the desired designs with millimeter accuracy. The energy efficiency and running speed of CO2 laser source are superior to any other traditional production technology, resulting in significant reduction of energy resources. In addition, this technology will only change the surface of the material, which means that no water or chemicals are needed. Compared with traditional decoration methods, laser engraving for clothing and textile industry is a more efficient, sustainable and environmentally friendly process.

    In addition, Monport laser engraver can achieve faster and more efficient carving and cutting of knitted fabrics. Laser processing is a non-contact, tool free process. In the laser cutting process, the textiles and fabrics that are cut and carved will not be contacted. Therefore, the textile will not warp due to the tearing force. The laser beam melts the material to produce a fiber free, clean and perfectly sealed edge, which is not only a neat edge, but also the whole fabric will not have deformation and other problems.

  52. Top 6 Tips to Reduce Laser Cutting Costs
    How to reduce engraving cost before engraving
    1. Precise design requirements
    The intention of reducing production time and improving design documents will ultimately reduce the cost of customized cutting pieces. If multiple parts are manufactured, adjusting the design direction will also reduce wasted materials and additional time. Build confidence by preliminary testing your design to determine that your order will be the right material with clean edges. In general, if you can use the following skills, your project should be completed faster at a lower price than before. But for complex design, the process may be laborious, and you can’t really know whether the layout you choose is the best solution. Engravers can optimize the laser cutting layout by using browser based vector nesting tools to achieve better integration and optimization of design and materials, maximize the use of materials and the efficiency of using laser engraving machines. Another consideration is the cost of materials themselves – minimizing material waste will also save you money. As an additional reward, saving resources can also make you feel good!

    2. Adjust the resolution and try to carve multiple items in a batch
    One thing that reduces production time is printing multiples. If you have a project that needs to engraver multiple objects of the same or similar design, such as plaques or coasters, print more than one at a time, rather than one at a time. Then, you can fill the whole table with a specific piece of work, and then engraver at a time. It is also helpful to use clamps to properly separate the objects.

    How to reduce engraving cost in engraving

    Minimize the switching times of the laser source. Normally, the laser can be switched off without using a metal laser cutter. In addition, in the case of meeting the cutting requirements, the use of power should be reduced as much as possible to save power consumption.

    Operate the machine according to the operating procedures
    Metal laser cutting machine is a high-tech equipment. Improper use will affect the entire mechanical system. The quality of the cutting workpiece is unstable, which seriously affects the quality of the equipment and cannot be repaired.
