Orion Coolers are named after the ‘Great Hunter’ Orion, of Greek mythology. Orion’s strength, dominance and timelessness are all traits that are built in to every cooler.
Coolers have come a long way in recent years. Gone are the utilitarian Styrofoam or Plastic insulated ones, the kind if you broke, lost, or left behind at a picnic you didn’t worry about losing.
Light consists of two waves, one propagated in the horizontal plane and one in the vertical plane. When light bounces off a flat surface, such as water, the horizontal component is seen as glare. Polarized lenses are made using a special optical filter which absorbs the horizontal component of light and transmits only the vertical component.
The Interior Department recently laid out a final offshore well-control rule that would require more frequent testing of the devices, swift reporting when parts fail, and retrofitting the equipment with extra shearing rams meant to slash through drill pipe and help seal an open well hole. The rules come nearly six years after the catastrophic blowout of a BP oil well in the Gulf of Mexico killed 11 workers and injured many others aboard Transocean’s Deepwater Horizon drilling rig.
