The Nite Ize Steelie Kits are an innovate way to create a mini stand for a tablet, e-reader, or other device.
Make a stand and get a handle on your tablet, e-reader, or other electronic device with the Steelie HobKnob Kit.
With its ingenious magnetic design, the Steelie HobKnob Kit is a fun, innovative way to create both a handle and mini stand for your tablet, e-reader, or other device. Simply peel and attach the Steelie Tablet Socket to the center of the back of your tablet or its rigid case. The Steelie Tablet Socket Component is a strong, machined aluminum base containing a powerful, circular magnet ringed and centered with flexible silicon and backed with 3M®'s VHB™ foam adhesive tape. The Steelie HobKob Handle Component - a specially engineered aluminum knob topped with a grippy rubber ball that fits securely around the socket, attaches to it magnetically, and makes a perfect handle so you can easily share your tablet, show videos, and give presentations without obscuring the screen or fumbling in the process. And, when it's propped on any flat, smooth surface, the HobKnob makes a useful angled stand, in either landscape or portrait, for typing, viewing, reading, or video chatting. As easy to detach as it is to snap on, the HobKnob fits easily in a pocket, and is as mobile as you are.
As an added plus, with the Tablet Socket attached to the back of your device, it will magnetically connect to other convenient metal surfaces - refrigerator doors, steel shelving, stove hoods, filing cabinets, lockers, and toolboxes -so you can dock it securely and keep it accessible and viewable wherever you go.

For most of us, when we think of nitrate and agricultural pollution, we think of the nitrate that comes from fertilizers and leaches quickly through the soil. The effects of this kind of pollution are realized quickly, but researchers from Lancaster University and the British Geological Survey have recently revealed an underground time bomb of nitrate in rock. In the recent paper , lead author and hydrogeologist Matthew Ascott and the team quantified the vast amounts of nitrate that exist within the layers of rock between the soil and groundwater tables for the first time. They discovered that there is about twice as much nitrate lurking in this rocky vadose zone than there is in the soil—up to 180 million tons—nitrate that has been omitted from global scale nitrogen budgets.Read More
In a state that knows water is perhaps the single most decisive factor in its continued existence, the Arizona Water Center (AWC), part of the United States Geological Survey (USGS), plays a critically important role. James Leenhouts, Director of the AWC and a hydrologist by training, has lived in Arizona for decades, and devoted his career to helping Arizonans cope with the unique challenges water presents. “A key part of what we do is provide information for resource managers to answer their questions,” Leenhouts explains. “For example, if someone wants to put wells in a certain place in the aquifer, how will it affect nearby wells?” It's a fair question.Read More
In many cases, new instrumentation leads to new knowledge, which leads to a new publication. But for Warren Wood, visiting professor of hydrogeology at Michigan State University, and his colleague David Hyndman, also a Michigan State University hydrogeologist, their new study arose from looking at previously gathered data in a new way. “In the paper, we estimated that a significant amount of CO2, 1.7 million metric tons per year, was likely being added to the atmosphere because groundwater has been tapped so much in recent years. A number of things went into our calculation. I had 40 years’ worth of groundwater data from my career at the United States Geological Survey (USGS). I also had a lifetime of experience with hydrogeology issues.Read More
