A Brief History Of Gasoline: How Standard Oil Got Away With It
The last installment of this series covered the rise of Standard Oil, the blueprint for every murderous modern corporation, but this week’s entry does not cover its fall. There has been no great defeat of Standard, as the little companies that it was broken into continue to evade judgement — real judgement — for their crimes. After each blow, Standard grew a new head; at each grasp Standard, became more slippery. This is the fifth story in a series of stories on the history of gasoline.

Material Knappiness: German furniture is more expensive
The German furniture industry suffers from the worldwide material shortage like many other industries. In addition to wood, metal components, fittings, electronic components, upholstered foams, cover substances and packaging materials are scarce, said Jan Kurth, managing director of the associations of the German Furniture Industry (VDM / VHK) on Monday in Cologne.

Tachometer 101: Saving Engines and Winning Races Is Still a Thing!
These 13 cool tachometer options are the latest muscle car cockpit accessories.

The business of Henkel and its approximately 52,000 employees is based on three pillars: the adhesive technologies adhesive, the washing and detergent division Laundry Ampersand Home Care and the cosmetic part Beauty Care.
Henkel benefits from the business with adhesives

The Laundry Ampersand Home divided almost 1.7 billion euros in the third quarter - and thus almost two percent more. In the Detergent business segment, Henkel just achieved growth in the nuclear brand Persil. For surface cleaners, on the other hand, the demand decreased. This has been normalized after she had risen at the beginning of the pandemic. Laundry Ampersand Home stands for one third of the Henkel sales.
