This Is Why Mattresses and Pillows Have A Do-Not-Remove Tag

  This Is Why Mattresses and Pillows Have A Do-Not-Remove Tag This Is Why Mattresses and Pillows Have A Do-Not-Remove TagTo answer these questions, you need to have some historical context. When the mattress industry was booming in the late 19th century, manufacturers began doing what most businesses do in their situation: look for ways to cut production costs and increase profit margins. Apparently, the solution they came up with was to stuff mattresses with unsanitary—sometimes even infested—materials, including "old bedding from hospitals," says Alan Axelrod, PhD, author of America Out Loud.

“In the all-new Terrastorm we signal our ambition to set new standards in the heavy-duty 4 × 4 minibus market across some of the toughest industries known to man,” says Vakhtang Dzhukashvili, founder “ We built Torsus to be a trailblazer and redefine the way people think about commercial vehicles, and

A compact crossover? How quaint. A premium SUV? Behave. What you really need is a Torsus Terrastorm. This is the minibus for you if your morning commute looks like a Snowrunner challenge.

Like the new Land Rover Defender, the Torsus Terrastorm is built in Slovakia. In common with the new Defender, it has been built to conquer the roughest of terrain. The one big advantage of the Terrastorm is that you can take up to 20 of your mates along for the ride.

Torsus . Yesterday at 04:27. TORSUS TERRASTORM - Engineered to be the world's most capable 4 x 4 minibus As part of the TORSUS PRAETORIAN testing, we took it to an undisclos ed location to test it over sandy snowy bumps built to slow heavily armoured vehicles.

The promises from Torsus are great! Torsus is a Czech vehicle retrofitter and with the brand new Terrastorm called four-wheel drive conversion he wants to have put the most powerful minibus But can the robust Torsus Terraform heavy-duty off-road bus really do so much more than the competition?

Defender versus Terrastorm: it’s the final episode of Game of Thrones the world wanted.

As you can see from the images, the Torsus Terrastorm is based on a Volkswagen Crafter 4Motion. Power is sourced from a 2.0-litre twin-turbo diesel engine offered in two guises: 140hp or 176hp. More relevant is the torque, which stands at 251lb ft or 302lb ft, depending on how much shove you need.

You’ve got a choice of a six-speed manual gearbox or an eight-speed automatic transmission.

There are two versions available: TT1 Coach and TT2 Nomad. Both include an upgraded chassis, off-road suspension, all-wheel-drive with a locking rear differential, an integrated winch capable of towing up to 5,500kg, side steps and a scratch resistant coating on the lower body panels. There’s also a bespoke Duraluminium skid plate running from the engine and gearbox to the rear diff and fuel tank to protect the vehicle from damage.

The TT2 Nomad – which sounds like something from a future Terminator film – adds a front metal bull-bar, rear light metal grilles, roof rack with integrated lights, spare tyre rack and rear ladder. This is the one to opt for if you fancy creeping up on Audi drivers on the M4 motorway.

The all-important suspension comprises MacPherson struts and Bilstein B6 shocks up front, and leaf springs with Ironman 4×4 Load Plus and optional Profender Dakar shocks at the back. The raised ride height, uprated suspension and 17-inch BF Goodrich All Terrain T/A KO2 tyres give the Terrastorm a ground clearance of 290mm. Still want that Dacia Sandero Stepway?

The Pandemic’s Geopolitical Aftershocks Are Coming

  The Pandemic’s Geopolitical Aftershocks Are Coming Western capitals aren’t just worried about the risk of a resurgence in coronavirus cases.Imagine a scenario: Just as Europe and the United States begin to feel as if they have the coronavirus under control, it takes hold in the developing world. Exhausted, indebted, and desperate for their own economies to get back up to speed, richer countries are too slow to help. Panic ensues. Migrants mass in southern Europe, which is still struggling to pull itself out of a coronavirus-induced depression. Somewhere, a state defaults on debt held largely by Western financial institutions. In the chaos, an autocrat eyes an opportunity for a land grab.

Torsus has come up with another multi-seat off-road vehicle in the form of the Terrastorm , which is based on a Volkswagen Crafter 4 Motion chassis You and 21 friends can go on an off-road adventure with the Torsus Terrastorm . It’s from the same company that brought us the 36-seat Praetorian.

Taking the bus is usually a fairly routine, mundane activity – but that sentiment doesn't apply to this Torsus Praetorian 4 x 4 . Based in the Czech Republic While the Torsus name is clearly evident, underpinning the Praetorian 4 x 4 is an chassis and engine package from German commercial vehicle

It comes with a wading depth of 690mm out of the box, but an optional Deep Wave pack enables the Terrastorm to go swimming in 820mm of water. For some context, the new Land Rover Defender offers a wading depth of 900mm.

Inside, the Torus Terrastorm offers accommodation for nine to 20 passengers, with each seat equipped with three-point seatbelts. The driver gets a touchscreen above the infotainment system to control the heating, lighting, air-conditioning and speaker system. You need a speaker when there’s 20 people in the bus with you.

Options include ‘extra active’ seats with five-point harnesses, which are the kind of chairs you’d expect to find The Rock or ‘The Stath’ using in some all-action film franchise. You can also add swivel seats, tables and – best of all – the potential to turn the Torsus Terrastorm into a campervan.

In a move that puts us in mind of the original Mercedes-Benz G-Wagen, Torsus will also convert the Terrastorm into an ambulance or a cargo van. The Medivac is built to EU or local regulations and can be supplied with stretchers, electrical suction units, defibrillators, syringe pumps and electrocardiograph machines.

By working with customers and listening to feedback and hearing their problems, we find solutions to create the ultimate off-road minibus.

“Terrastorm is a vehicle that will be at home on the dunes of the Sahara to delivering packages and emergency care work in the mountainous regions. The vehicle is versatile in its configurations, it is always able to offer more capability to serve multiple markets and industries.”
