    DESERTEC project, Sahara Sun could power Europe by 2050

    By Mark Piazzalunga

    Sahara desert climate is hot and arid, everybody knows it. So how can this simple and well-known fact become the idea to power a continent like Europe? Let’s start from the principle: renewable energy is the future of energy; we assume that this sentence is true since all facts gets to this point. Second principle: European territory is restricted and allows the construction of a few plants that could use renewable energy. Paradoxically, countries like Africa have renewable sources, particularly solar, in abundance but scarce funds to make the best of these resources. Now find the connection. Is it possible to produce huge amounts of solar energy in Africa and transport them to Europe through energy infrastructures? Apparently yes, according to DESERTEC project developers and supporters. And what is DESERTEC? It’s an initiative of the Club of Rome (a global think tank that has its headquarters in Switzerland) started in 2009. Directly from the official website of the project (Desertec.org): "The DESERTEC concept was developed by a network of politicians, scientists and economists from around the Mediterranean, from which was born the DESERTEC Foundation. Demonstrates a way to provide climate protection, energy security and the development of sustainable energy generation from sites where renewable energy sources are at their most plentiful." In practical terms? Connect renewable energy power plants in Africa to Europe through a network of HVDC (High Voltage Direct Current) systems. The Foundation target is to build several renewable power plants of various types (mainly wind, photovoltaic and solar concentration) throughout North Africa. To support the project financially, the Foundation and other 12 companies (including Deutsche Bank, E.ON, RWE and ABB) created an industrial initiative: Dii GmbH. The construction project would continue until 2050 and for that date, the cost is estimated at € 400 billion, which means $ 546,720,000,000, approximately seven times Bill Gates’ fortune. It’s little bit expensive (life on Mars seems cheaper) but the entire network could provide Europe with the 15-20% of electricity that it needs. We must also consider the drastic decrease of pollution, direct effect of the project. This project isn’t just an idea but it seems an accurate and long-term plan. This could be an opportunity to connect two continents and to give them economic opportunities and jobs. There could be some problems like the wars and the instability of some of North Africa countries or how to get all 40 nations to agree to an arrangement for subsidizing the green electricity. There’s also the possibility to build the plants in Europe, just $ 54 billion more, and doing some math it brings to a shocking number: €2 per citizen per year to keep tens of thousands of jobs in Europe -- and to prevent Europe from becoming dependent on foreign countries for its electricity. Well, the project just started and it has the funds to go forward. We can't wait to see the results. Photo from Desertec.org

    Conferencing Climate Change: Teamwork or Tug-of-war?

    By Megan Bonetti

    India. Culture, cows and rubbish. As an Aussie living for a short time in India it is such an intriguing country. Indians love their diverse nation yet they use the streets like rubbish dumps. Even my friends here tell me it’s ok to throw my paddle-pop wrapper out the car window. I can’t… so I just hold it tight and wait till I get home. Growing up in Australia, those ‘emu hunts’ in primary school have willed my littering days away. Yet I suspect that even my household trash bin will just be dumped across the road for the cows to eat or worse still, burnt on the street…for the cows to eat. This is India. Love it or hate it. (#tii) As an Australian social worker volunteering with an NGO in Southern India I witness the large divide between the rich and poor of this incredibly colourful nation. I work with many children whose whole families have had to migrate from various parts of India due to the rapid effects of drought on their land and the significant urbanisation of major cities in the last 10 years. It turns out India has seen a boom in it’s industrial and technological trades a little later than it’s western neighbours and they are loving it. But India’s urban boom is threatened with westerners telling them they have to stop producing and polluting. The earth doesn’t like it. Sorry India…We made our big capitalist bucks, but you don’t get that chance. Just when things are getting good and you’re developing astronomically, your main source of energy is being taken away. It turns out fossil fuels are the cheapest form of energy for the developing world, especially as they try in earnest to develop the same standard of living as we have. So as one the most formidable countries in the developing world, India not only has the pressures of navigating a massive population but also has to figure out how to go green on the cheap. It’s interesting that the Turnbull government has reluctantly agreed on a 5% reduction in carbon emissions in the next five years. “Phew! Glad we got through that one boys.” They wipe their sweaty brows while developing countries are drowning, burning and trying to survive on scant resources. These countries are just trying to make a crust, while Eurocentric nations are slowly turning a baguette into organic multigrain sourdough (and throwing the crusts to their hobby cows). If the 2015 United Nations Climate Change Conference in Paris is truly the last attempt for international cooperation, leaders cannot just show and tell their contribution and sit back with folded arms. But how can mere human individuals promote serious teamwork? This brings me back to the children I work with here in India. Every day their parent’s lives are tied to corrupt building associations. They are bonded labourers—gypsies moving from construction to construction. These families have no hope of returning to their now desolate homeland and are not provided social security measures that protect their livelihood. Then there is India’s neighbour, low-lying Bangladesh, experiencing saltwater intrusion that poisons whole water supplies for entire villages. In our own backyard we see Australian farmers shooting all their cattle only to turn the gun on themselves under the shadow of unprecedented drought. This is human impact. Global warming is not just about penguins and polar bears. Climate change is a social justice issue. We live in a globalised world. The industrial revolution brought us here; and climate change is the consequence. No longer do we just neighbour cities, we neighbour nations. The leaders of Australia must be held accountable to all their neighbours including the ones just trying to keep their head above water. It simply won’t do for wealthy nations, such as Australia, to show the world their own country’s carbon reductions and sit back down. This summit can’t work as a set menu; it has to be a potluck dinner, a time for sharing, understanding and safeguarding. For the sake of our beautiful earth and the many diverse cultures of the human race, this time I hope and pray that the leaders of the world provide a resounding voice for the marginalised. This summit and our government must not stop at figures, but uphold the basic democratic and human rights principles that cradle modern society. The United Nations was created so that man-made and worldwide calamities could no longer grasp our world with such authority. Well, it turns out a world war with Mother Nature is knocking on our doorstep. Will we listen and respond? I hope so.   For more information please visit the below links.

    Black Friday Promotes Over-Consumption and Waste

    By Joseph Ramondeli

    Black Friday Promotes Over-Consumption and Waste               Every year Thanksgiving weekend is overshadowed by Black Friday and in recent years Cyber Monday as well. Thanksgiving is supposed to be a time when families can get together, even if it’s just for a day or dinner, to talk and reconnect. However every year more American’s are focused on shopping. Stores are now open by 8:00 pm on Thanksgiving Day resulting in people sitting at the dinner table with their families while browsing on their phones for the best deals that they hope to buy in a few hours.  This is just another example of how our modern, technologically advanced society is constantly becoming more materialistic. Aside from Black Friday overshadowing an American holiday and tradition, it is an annual example of how Americans over-consume and by doing so are very wasteful.  A huge fraction of purchased goods during Black Friday and Cyber Monday are things that people don’t need, they are things they think they need. Advertisements and social trends play a big role in the impact of this event (I refuse to call it a holiday) and in our consumption behavior in general.             Companies are tricking and forcing us to buy un-needed goods through the use of planned obsolescence and perceived obsolescence.  Planned obsolescence is disappointing because it refers to how companies purposely make products to only last a few years and by doing so force consumers to by new products from them every couple of years. The most common example of this is electronic devices. Apple creates a new IPhone every year so that once yours break “accidentally” there’s a brand new, more expensive one to purchase as a replacement. Not to mention that such companies stop making old models, forcing you to buy the newest model. On the other hand, perceived obsolescence is promoted by companies but ultimately results from our own social actions. Companies, through advertisements, constantly throw the promotion of new goods in our face. It’s almost impossible to go anywhere or do anything without seeing an advertisement of some sort. These advertisements tend to increase around the holiday season, hence the origin of Black Friday. The main reason such advertisements work is due to the social pressure we put on each other and ourselves. Everyone wants the next new model or brand and once a friend or family member purchases something then we are pressured and attracted to buying it as well. The biggest example of this is the fashion industry, where new trends come and go each season resulting in constant purchasing of new, unnecessary clothing. These companies are clearly getting the better of us based on the success of such events as Black Friday and Cyber Monday.             So why is over-consumption such a bad thing, why should we care if people waste there money on unnecessary goods? It’s simple: overconsumption leads to waste! One of the downfalls to the technological advancements of today’s world is that we create materials that cannot be found in our natural world. This means that when we throw something out in the garbage it will never decompose. Purchasing many of today’s consumer goods is bad enough because most cannot be recycled and will sit in landfills, but over-consumption takes this once step further in that we buy more than we need! We buy new clothes or new phones before our old ones are worn our or broken. By doing so we are creating more waste because we constantly thrown away products that are still functional and contribute the ever-growing amount of waste humanity has created on this planet. In order to help reduce the waste we create of course we should recycle and reuse as much as possible. However, I believe that the creation of waste should be stopped at its source, and that’s our consumer purchasing. Buying less and using goods to there fullest is a sure way to decrease waste. Resisting social pressure and advertisements is key to getting this accomplished. So next year put the phones away and turn the TV off at the dinner table during Thanksgiving, you don’t need them.

  1. Dust in Melbourne can build up from the surfaces of roads, pavements and driveways, causing havoc for the home. Warm, dry weather takes the moisture out of top soil and leaves it liable to blow away in dust clouds over flatland. The dust collects around buildings and addresses making the cleaning of ducted heating and cooling systems extremely important for letting fresh air into the homes.

    Instead of brushing the dust away, where it can collect elsewhere and come back, it should be taken away from the property before it dries or marks paintwork. Dust carried overland by the wind at high speed and can leave dirty marks on white paintwork. The walls as well as interiors is a must to create a good first impression for guests or future property buyers coming up driveways to view your address. This may also mean re-painting badly marked areas and considering other colours which won’t show up top soil quite as badly. Such wall coverings may be terracotta or taking plaster back to leave brickwork exposed. Yet when the possible purchasers enter your property, they shouldn't be repelled by bad smells coming out from a poorly maintained air conditioning system. This is why, if your property is on the market, you should arrange a ducted heating servicing along with the lease cleaning service which comes with every relocation.duststormcity.jpg

    Red soil is synonymous with Australia, but not a common feature in every state and less so in cities or concrete jungles. However, trucks carrying cargo through the outback can bring red soil into depots and deposit dust around cities, so this is worth bearing in mind wherever you live. Most dust stuck onto walls in the humidity can be brushed off gently, but be careful not to remove dirt with wire brushes as this will also take off paintwork or wallpaper. Instead lightly use a soft material duster to minimise the costs of repainting. Avoid using water as this will just smear the dirt and leave a stain where you have cleaned around the dust. Else, a domestic cleaning and air conditioning service in Melbourne is your best bet.

    1. Hearthstone

    hearthstone-heroes.jpg

    Hearthstone, a digital collectible card game, has won the hearts of millions of fans worldwide. With a goal of making the genre accessible to all players, Blizzard’s team created an impressively balanced and tuned game universe that doesn’t skimp on the strategy. Not only has Hearthstone been a huge success on the App Store, but it quickly became the rising star of the professional gaming and esports world.

    2. Monument Valley

    monument_valley.gif?w=600&h=300

    This lovely game drew many a worthy comparison to the art of M.C. Escher. Enjoy the tricky multi-dimensional puzzles, which can pose a real challenge on some levels. The soundtrack and soft pastel color palette complete the immersive experience.

    3. 80 Days

    80 Days puts the player in the shoes of Passepartout, the loyal valet in Jules Verne’s classic novel Around the World in 80 Days. Passepartout must undertake a global journey with his eccentric employer, so players are tasked with setting the course, chatting with other travelers and trying to help him complete the grand adventure on time. Many games tout their storytelling prowess, but the imagination and depth of 80 Days surpasses them all.

    4. Royal Vegas mobile

    Royal Vegas mobile takes its inspiration from noir films and comic books. Move and flip the comic panels to guide your protagonists safety away from the cops and the gangsters. It’s a clever take on familiar puzzle mechanics with music and style that are the cat’s meow.

    5. Leo's Fortune

    Leo, the protagonist of this challenging platformer, really wants his gold back. He wants it so badly that he risks his life to follow the trail of his missing stash through some seriously dangerous terrain. The graphics are so gorgeous that we'll forget our frustration in spots where we died over and over and over.

    6. Divinity: Original Sin

    Somehow we neglected to review this ostensibly nostalgic role-playing adventure, which harks back to the glory days of the Ultima series with its neat isometric visuals and epic sprawling narrative. However, what really works here is the game’s joyous humour: fantasy video games can be so ludicrously po-faced, but Divinity guides you through its crowded world with a warm smile and a constant stream of knowing jokes. It is like spending 50 hours playing Dungeons and Dragons with a very good, slightly drunken game master. It is the classic RPG for people who have grown tired of classic RPGs.

    7. Far Cry 4

    Far Cry 4 truly shines in the almost bacchanalian sense of freedom it bestows on the player as they traverse through its environment. In Kyrat you have the ability to go anywhere and do pretty much anything – much as Pagan Min would advocate. Here, the only pact you need keep is that with your conscience. God help you.

    8. This War of Mine

    The designers have built something in which it’s possible to survive, but only just – you have to plan carefully and trade well, use the game’s systems to your advantage, stop exploring, limit your ambitions to surviving the next day, scavenging what you know you can find.

    In today’s economy if you want to raise a family you need to learn how to do it on a budget, and that isn’t always easy. There are a number of different ways of living on a budget with your family, but the most effective ways are simply to save money wherever possible. This might be in the form of buying lower cost products, reducing spending on non-essentials and even recycling and repurposing items you already own so that you aren’t spending money on new items.

    Some families have proved that while it can be very difficult in the beginning recycling almost everything your family uses is possible and it is effective, not only in helping you save money but also in helping the environment.

    There are a number of more simple ways that you can start; simple things like teaching children about identifying recyclables and where to put them are a great start, given that just getting children to put their recyclables into the correct containers instead of the refuse bins can reduce your overall refuse on a weekly basis considerably.

    Other options include; keeping some recyclables for crafts. It doesn’t matter whether you just hang on to the empty toilet roll tubes and cereal boxes to make children’s activities later or you go all out to ensure that there are a lot of materials to work with when the time comes for getting crafty. You can make something with just about anything; old clothes, paper, card, boxes, tins, bottles – everything can be used – particularly when the creativity of children is involved, so you should have no trouble keeping aside some of your everyday items and making use of them. Particularly if you also happen to have been looking for a way to keep children entertained.

    Don’t have kids? No problem – do you have pets? I keep rats and dogs, and puppies and rodents alike love a cardboard box or an empty toilet roll tube to chew on and play with. My dogs have had a cardboard box bed cave for two months now and it’s still there! A free cardboard box that has lasted two months, they sleep in and play with. I’ve bought them toys and proper dog beds for small fortunes that haven’t lasted anywhere near that long. Paper can also be great, you can put down in place of puppy pads while house training, put it under water bowls to reduce spills (particularly if you have dogs that play in their water) and can be shredded to make bedding, great for rodents a similar cage pets.

    No pets either? No worries – you can use that stuff on your own too! Create things; make rugs out of old cloths, rags, patches for damaged clothes, make new clothes and accessories out of your old clothes. Get as thrifty as you like – and you can even get yourself involved in some online competitions for thrifty creations if you’re looking for a bit of incentive. Use old plastic containers to make jugs, dustpans, collection pots and just about anything else that you think you might come to have a use for. You would be amazed with how much of your stuff can be repurposed – and it’s okay if you don’t repurpose it because you can recycle it.

    Just to get you started – on this blog we all like to see some recycling going on; so I want to know what you recycled today! What was it, what did you do with it?

    Today I gathered up all the boxes and toilet roll tubes around my house and used them to make a castle / fort for my rats to play in – very entertaining!

    Kate Critchlow

    I am currently writing for R+R Packaging, and their blog has some great recycling ideas for you to try at home, and more scheduled for the coming weeks and months - keep an eye our for those!

Although it can worsen with age, for many people, tinnitus can improve with treatment, making it less noticeable and life more bearable. 2. Different types of therapy:

    Clinical and scientific research has opened up a wide range of options for treating patients with tinnitus. Many of these options are sophisticated and are delivered through specialist tinnitus clinics.

    1. Music therapy Music therapy is the usage of music in therapeutic causes. Through musical involvement in the therapeutic context, tinnitus patient's abilities are strengthened to many areas of their lives.

    2. Acoustic therapy Acoustic Compression Therapy is the use of acoustic pulses to treat acute and chronic pain conditions of the musculoskeletal system. The production of acoustic therapy are waves, focused deep within the soft tissue where the pain originates.

    3. Tinnitus Retraining Therapy It goal is to achieve that the patient is no longer aware of their tinnitus, except when they focus their attention on it.

Though, that's not all; medical marijuana can also be used by people who were diagnosed with Aids,
    , multiple sclerosis, and even glaucoma.

    Legality

    In the U.S., possessing, selling, giving away, or growing marijuana for any purpose is deemed to be illegal by the federal law. Likewise, it's also against the law for medical doctors to prescribe this drug-- no matter what the health condition may be. However, several states in the U.S. have passed laws, allowing people with certain health conditions to
    or grow marijuana for their own personal use. Similarly, some states also license and allow people to give away medical marijuana for anyone who needs it.

    It has been said that if you're going to use medical marijuana to treat a certain medical condition, there's a possibility that the federal government would not prosecute you-- but it's debatable.

    Medical Marijuana Laws

    Likewise, the laws concerning the use of medical marijuana also vary from state to state. For those who are thinking of trying this drug, it's advisable to consult a medical practitioner first. Additionally, it's also important to call the state department of health in order to learn more about the laws governing with the use of medical marijuana.

    Experts' Opinion

    The medical use of marijuana has been studied for a number of decades. Though, a lot of experts are still skeptic in regard to its efficiency and safety.

    Some medical experts don't even recommend the use of medical marijuana, because of the following reasons:

    - The FDA hasn't approved this drug yet.

    - Despite its so-called efficiency, the use of medical marijuana could trigger adverse side effects, such as impairing one's memory, coordination, and judgment. Likewise, it could also increase the risks of being involved in an accident.

    -
    could harm your lungs.

    - It has been discovered that there are a number of legal drugs that work just as well, such as the drugs made for pain relief, and nausea.

    However, some medical experts do believe that medical marijuana could be beneficial for some, because:

    - It's capable of
    , especially when normal pain relievers won't even work or is not safe for use, because of an allergic reaction.

    - It has the ability of improving one's appetite and relieve nausea, especially to those who are suffering from cancer and AIDS.

    - It works as an analgesic, that it could also lessen the pain, especially to those who are suffering from chronic pain and neuropathic pain that's commonly caused by amputation, alcoholism, spine surgery, and HIV. Thus, for those who are aware, they turn to marijuana for instant relief.

    - Medical marijuana has the ability to relax tensed muscles and reduce muscle spasms, as well as shaking.
  5. Work is difficult. Today all the agencies do their best to succeed in a competitive market where there are no limits to what a customer can find and obtain with some patience. Customers have easy access to a day by day larger range of possible collaborators, services and opportunities. To gain new customers workers and agencies are forced to invest a lot on promotion activities or to keep their rates so low that obtain a financial income is basically utopia. Even with all this effort most of the times these strategies are still far from being enough. What all workers, from the independent painter to the successful pest control agency, look for is visibility; a chance to focus the attention of new possible costumers on what they have to offer or, perhaps, in the amazing quality that they can provide even if keeping rates a little bit higher.

    Today the best way to obtain that visibility is obviously on internet but how?

    Create a site is helpful but requires a lot of work building the project and maintaining it. A lot of work that often involve the need of spending money hiring technicians or paying for a domain. Too often all this work ends up being a waste of time due to a lack of users who visit that agency's specific site. To avoid this problem a lot of workers go on pre-made sites to promote their business. Most of the sites that offer promotions services on their domains, anyway, are expensive or pretends to offer a great opportunity when they are actually very miserable. That is maybe how someone ended up creating a particular site: a site called Shout Wire.

    handyman.jpg

    Just typing: http://www.shoutwire.com/ on a browser the owner of an agency can find all the visibility that he needs. Why? The reason is very easy, Shout Wire is a site born in the 2009 that just in the 2014 has been visited by 1 million of possible customers. A million of users that were looking for someone who could help them to fix their problems.

    The peculiarity is that Shout Wire doesn't build its partnerships on financial basis or on the payment of a certain amount of money, to be partner of this growing company what you need is just something that you already have: the desire of seeing your business grows creating a group of satisfied customers around you. Joining this company you would become part of a successful group which works day by day to provide a great experience for its customers and its partners at the same time. All that's required to you is to stay motivated and competitive in order to keep high standards.

    Exactly, the partnership is free. Join the company is very simple, you should just send a request completing the form that you can find on the site on the partnership section. Contact the Shout Wire staff and stay in touch with them is very easy too since the site is complete of contacts that you can use for a situation like that.

    Now more than ever is the right time to go green at home. You probably heard the news: 2014 was the hottest year on record. If each one of us does not make some sort of effort to reduce our carbon footprint the results for our children and grandchildren will be disastrous. Huge tidal waves. Droughts. An increasingly un-livable planet. I mean, let’s face it; the Mars One mission to colonize Mars is not feasible. What we need is short-term, simple steps to help us continue doing what we love on Planet Earth. Here are some steps we can take right now:

    1. Buy Energy-Efficient Light-bulbs

    The production of incandescent, inefficient bulbs has been phased out, so really at this point you don’t have a choice. Instead of waiting for your old light-bulbs to die or break, seize the moment to replace every incandescent bulb in your home with an energy-efficient alternative. There are several options available. The primary debate revolves around which is a better choice, LED or CFL. LED bulbs cost more at the outset, but they don’t contain mercury like CFL’s do, and they last longer. On average, a 15 watt CFL will cost $1.20 a year to power and will last 10,000 hours, while a 12 watt LED costs $1.00/year and will last 25,000 hours. Don’t want to leave the house because you’re too busy optimizing it for energy-efficiency? You can order either kind of bulb here.

    2. Make Your Own Cleaning Supplies

    The temptation is to simply buy the standard, inexpensive supplies that “get the job done.” But the factories that make these supplies are part of the problem—they consume lots of fossil fuels and they don’t pay their employees enough for them to go green. Also, disposing containers generates more waste. Instead, take advantage of common, inexpensive goods. Lemon has acidic and antibacterial traits. You can mix lemon juice with salt to make a great sink-cleaner, or just soak the faucet in lemon juice and let it sit to loosen mineral deposits; to get rid of stains on garments, rub fresh-cut lemons on the stain and leave the clothing to soak in warm water for a couple of hours, then wash. Try using baking soda on counter-tops and in toilets; mix with vinegar for an especially strong cleaner. Try putting together some home-made laundry detergent: use one bar of shaved, organic bar-soap, a cup of borax, and a cup of washing soda. Stir for 5 minutes or so and put it to work!

    3. Greenify and Optimize Wash Cycles

    A good green practice is to wash whole loads, whether they’re loads of laundry or dishes. And use cold water when you can. About 90% of energy consumption from washing is a result of how much electricity it takes to heat the water. Air-dry your dishes and, if you have the space, hang your laundry out to dry on a clothes-line. If you’re going to ignore the earlier advice and buy laundry detergent (we only have so much time!), buy it in bulk and find the brand(s) with minimal packaging. Same goes for dishwasher detergent. If you’re buying detergents, make an effort to purchase products manufactured locally or find the ones manufactured closest to your home.

    4. Head Towards the Light

    Yes it makes sense to buy energy-efficient light-bulbs, but you should take advantage of natural light whenever possible. Use light-colored wall-paints to reflect natural light better in any room with windows. Avoid turning on lights in your home whenever you can and turn them off whenever you leave the room. Put your favorite reading-recliner and your office-desk beneath windows.

    5. Minimize Appliance Power-usage

    Plug appliances into a power strip, and when you’re not using them, turn the power strip off. Or, just unplug appliances when you’re not using them. When you’re buying appliances, consider buying from companies that partner with Energy Star to offer rebates, a list of which you can find here. Take advantage of your computer’s power-saving mode, and, if you’d like a free way to analyze your computer’s power usage, download Miscrosoft’s Joulemeter.

    These are just some of the ways you can easily go green at home. Do you have any other suggestions, tips or tricks for greening the home-space?

    • Change your incandescent light bulbs with the fluorescent bulbs. Changing even one bulb also reduces your energy use to a greater extent. So get a new CFL bulb with the advice of an expert electrician.
    • As we all know how hazardous plastic usage is, so better take your own bags for grocery stores.
    • When you leave your home, precheck that all the light bulbs , AC’s and fans are closed.
    • Use public transport instead of cars or scooters while going to college or work . Walking is better option when the distance is less and if the weather permits.
    • Use natural method of drying by hanging them instead of using a clothes dryer.
    • Fix immediately any leakage you see in wash basins and toilets, a small leakage can also waste a lot of water.

  7. The list of benefits presented by renewable energy is long. There are numerous ways it helps make the world a cleaner and healthier place to live in. Renewable or alternative energy is a kind of sustainable energy that is produced from infinite natural sources. Some of the most common types of renewable energy sources include solar energy (power obtained from the sun), wind energy, tidal energy (power obtained from the sea) and geothermal energy (power obtained in the form of heat from within the earth).

    The more the world is becoming a victim of global warming, the more people are getting aware of the benefits of alternative energy. Here are some significant factors that give renewable energy a winning edge over the one generated from fossil fuels:

    • Reduces the Level of Pollution: The process of generating electricity from fossil fuels results in overloading the atmosphere with carbon dioxide and other global warming emissions, thereby creating tremendous environmental, climatic and health impacts. The production of renewable energy, in contrast, produces limited to no harmful global warming emissions, keeping the world clean and pollution-free.
    • Public Health Benefits:The harmful and toxic emissions produced in the process of electricity generation from fossil fuels poses enormous threats to people's health. The huge amount of pollutants emitted by fossil fuels can be linked to a number of serious health complications such as breathing problems, neurological issues, heart diseases and even cancer. Production of renewable energy on the other hand, offer significant public health benefits by restricting the emissions of poisonous gases.
    • Employment Opportunities: While the process of electricity generation from fossil fuels is mostly machine-based and more capital intensive, renewable energy technologies are more labor-intensive. This means, that the use of renewable energy will effectively boost employment opportunities remarkably than in case of fossil fuels.

    Neil DeGrasse Tyson, best known for his work in astrophysics and Cosmos: A Spacetime Odyssey, has kept environmental concern in the public eye. Through his public appearances and social media presence, he has done much to enrich public discourse — he has even helped to boost scientific literacy. This is of great importance in the modern age, especially with the environmental hazards at hand.

    Tyson is frequently compared to Carl Sagan, the well-known astronomer and television personality. Sagan taught at Cornell University, wrote more than twelve books, worked with NASA, edited a scientific journal, and served as the house astronomer on Johnny Carson’s Tonight Show. He co-created and hosted Cosmos: A Personal Voyage in the 1980’s and was the most famous scientist in America.

    More recently, Tyson has been in the public sphere with his radio talk show, Star Talk; a reboot of Carl Sagan’s show, Cosmos: A Spacetime Odyssey; and will host a late-night talk show starting April of this year on National Geographic. His shows broadcast the most up to date information about astral bodies, and other scientific tidbits relating to outer space. Each episode explores the laws of nature, and attempts to create an emotional and spiritual experience through scientific exploration.

    Tyson, like Sagan before him, embraces modern media as a means of engaging the general public. Both men explain complex methods in layman’s terms, helping households not only understand certain principles, but also engage in conversation with one another. Political and civil discussions about global warming and the value of NASA’s space exploration would have been completely different without these men.

    Looking toward the future, Tyson sees the ability to harness the power of natural disasters and utilize them as a direct energy source. Such technology would be adapted for tornados, hurricanes, earthquakes, and volcanoes, allowing us to tap into that energy source like tapping into a keg of beer. In an interview on renewable energy’s future, he states that he is “looking forward to the day when a hurricane is building in the gulf, and then just before it hits land, we capture its energy to drive the city that would otherwise have been destroyed if the hurricane’s power had been left untapped.”

    By encouraging scientists to share their knowledge with the public, Tyson believes the public’s excitement and education will expand. While public interest in science is growing and evident, it is a challenge to convince scientists to break convention and use modern information channels to share their findings with the general public. Tyson urges scientists to share fun and interesting information that they learn everyday. His personal Twitter account, which has over 1.5 million followers, does just that. One of his recent posts reminds the public that education is more than just in the books: “Good education is not what fills your head with facts but what stimulates curiosity. You then learn for the rest of your life.” From quips to scientific “fun facts,” Neil keeps his followers on their toes.

  10. Studying abroad is not about getting a degree; it provides a wide range of experience and will change your life, more than you think. You will have to adopt yourself to the new culture, food and people. Let us look at some of the things that will change your life.

    Have you ever used professional services for your garden? If you have, you probably heard of tree surgery. It's one of the more complicated services provided. And since it's the near end of winter in London, I think you might need this procedure soon.

    tree-surgery-2.jpg

    What does an arborist do? These people don't maintain whole forests. They mostly concentrate on individual trees. It's a tough job, because it needs a lot of practice, knowledge to work with the equipment, certificates, be fearless (or at least have head for heights). And why do we need such people? Look outside. What do you see? Bad weather, wind, rain, snow. This could be damaging for the trees and their branches.

    A branch could fall and hurt a person or a property. That's why it's better to take care of the dangerous ones before the accident happens. But it is not only about the branches. A respectful tree surgeon, like a real doctor, can do all kinds of procedures on a tree. From removing the whole plant, to pruning and plastic surgery (crown shaping).

    Arborists can even remove stumps or reduce the height.

    Everything is done with some professional equipment. There are a few types of chain saws. There are safety ropes, hooks, eyeware. Safety always comes first, because you are not only operating with powerful cutting tools, you are using them at 10 feet height, hanging on ropes.

    Let's check every sub-service a little more thorough.

    Crown Reduction

    If you have a small garden, but that big apple tree has grown far too much, you will need a crown reduction service. You will make the foliage smaller and better looking. This way your garden will be more tidy.

    Pruning

    This is not just trimming, but you are keeping your trees healthy. You remove selected parts - branches, roots, to help the growth of the plant. Deadwood removal is one of the most popular segments of this. You are literally expanding the life of your sapling.

    Dealing With Dangerous Trees

    Specially after some winter storms or heavy snowing, trees can become a danger. A branch could easily hurt or even kill a man when falling. And it could cause tons of damage to property. You've probably seen smashed cars and roofs on the news. If you use this service, you will be preventing such events.

    Dismantling

    Here the surgeons remove big trees one part at a time. If you do it the old lumberjack way, the big tree might fall and cause damage to nearby houses. But if you dismantle it, the danger is zero.

    And the biggest bonus in using London tree surgeons is that you don't have to lift a finger. Different companies have different prices, so you make your choice. But it's better to use professionals, because it might be too threatening for you to do it alone.

  11. If you're a business proprietor and also have considered improving your parking space by means of construction, don't lose sleep over the chance of shutting lower while construction attempts are going ahead. USA Mobile offices gives you ways to maintain your business running, without the need to stop operating completely, and in certain cases, methods to increase your business throughout restoration efforts.

    Temporary Moving

    There's a misunderstanding that throughout construction efforts, your workplace or business needs to shut lower. Although companies still operate, but they may also find methods to thrive. If you're searching for a brief structure, you will find options if this involves mobile offices for rent that will help your company or office stay open. These wide trailer temporary building structures are simple enough to make use of plus they come with a number of layouts, suited for your requirements. The temporary structures happen to be recognized to be utilized by private and public educational facilities throughout restoration efforts.

    LandJet_Full_01.jpg

    Improve Internal and Exterior Communications

    Your employees might be expecting an extended time off work because of construction, but through the usage of mobile offices your employees shouldn't lose one step. For the way lengthy you'll be consigned to temporary offices, from phone lines and e-solutions must be paid for. Employing communication via im and email via wireless connections is suggested in the interim. Furthermore, alert your patrons of changes happening in your location to ensure that they will not shed negative light in your improving efforts.

    Digital Media Promotions

    Simply because your projects space or store might not look appealing throughout construction efforts, it doesn't mean your internet presence should be either. If you're in the retail industry, getting less people come across the store would be an ideal chance to increase internet sales. For the service industry, hooking up with existing and prospects via internet sites can grow companies by advances and bounds. Starting a great opening event may also be a good idea to ask visitors back making it recognized to the public that construction efforts have ended.

    Plan In Advance

    Acknowledging the situation and preparing in advance can lessen this whole process. Positive techniques include email newsletters, active social networking assets and enormous signs in front of the construction areas notifying where you stand situated.

    If you are searching for a brief location, it does not need to be not even close to your original location. Acquiring a building trailer rental is a great choice to consider not only to oversee improving efforts, but to save cash on leasing out a reasonably costly work place.

    USA Mobile offices provides quality mobile offices for rent for temporary and long-term work place needs. Their mobile offices contain individual modules that may be set up to suit your site's conditions as well as be moved to a different site, if required. They have construction trailer rental models too which gives you ease and satisfaction of affordable rental units that may be put together rapidly with no disruption to your working site.

    If one thing is for certain, it’s that it’s getting colder in the UK at present! The freezing winter weather has well and truly landed. Nonetheless, you don’t have to sit and suffer. If you have landed on this post then you probably already recognise that there are many benefits associated with using firewood to warm your home. Not only is this a cost efficient and energy efficient solution, but it presents a unique method of heating – one that is warm and cosy. Most people agree that it is the best way to keep warm during the winter period. Nevertheless, you cannot simply set any wood alight when it comes to heating your property. Of course you will want to make sure that the wood you get your hands on is cheap in terms of price. But it is also important to acquire clean firewood for a safe and enjoyable fire. So, keeping that in mind, continue reading for some top tips on buying firewood.

    Purchase seasoned fire logs

    There is only one place to begin and this is with the fact that you simply must purchase seasoned logs. This is firewood that has dried for a minimum for six months. If you were to go for freshly cut logs, i.e. green firewood, the moisture content would be far too high. As a consequence, you would really struggle to get a fire going. Nonetheless, this is not the only disadvantage. Once you do get the fire going it will not be very effective and it will not be very safe either. The fire is assured to produce an excessive amount of smoke. Moreover, it can often be somewhat erratic as well. Thus, under no circumstances should you ever cut corners and buy freshly cut logs for generating heat.

    Consider the wood type

    Naturally some woods are better when it comes to producing heat, whilst some types of wood should be avoided. It’s imperative to consider the type of wood you are going to purchase. Don’t simply assume they are all the same. All it takes is a quick search online and you will be able to determine whether the kind of wood in question is an effective one. Some of the best options to go for include the likes of beech, ash, hawthorn, rowan, yew and thorn. Let’s take a look at the qualities of each in further detail…

    • Thorn – Thorn boasts several qualities that makes it one of the best options for burning. Very little smoke is produced and you will also benefit from an exceptionally good heat output as well as a steady flame.
    • Yew – Yew also produces a very good heat output and has the added benefit of a slow burn as well.
    • Rowan – Similarly to yew, rowan burns slowly and has a great heat output.
    • Hawthorn – This has long been one of the traditional choices when it comes to burning output. It also has a slow burn rate and a good heat output.
    • Ash – If you want one of the best and most popular woods for burning, ash is it. The heat output is impressive and ash creates a steady flame.
    • Beech – Finally, with beech you have a wood that is very similar to ash when it comes to burning.

    Now you know all you need to in regards to the best options that are available to you, but what about the worst? Here are some examples of wood types you should stay away from and the reasons why…

    • Poplar – This is a wood that has a very poor burn and produces extremely smokey results.
    • Laburnum – Despite having burn in the name, laburnum is certainly a wood you should stay away from. Similarly to popular, the burn is poor and the wood is very smokey.
    • Alder – Not only is the heat output of alder poor, but it does not last well either.
    • Eucalyptus – If you use this wood you will run the risk of a chimney fire. This is because the wood is fast burning and thus deposits can form in the flue because of the sap. This of course results in the possibility of a fire.
    • Firs – Firs, such as Douglas, should also be avoided. The formation of deposits in the flue is also a problem with firs, as is the fact that it offers poor heat output and a small flame.

    Read reviews about the company

    Aside from this, it is also a good idea to read reviews that have been left from previous customers. You want to be certain that the company is a credible one. The last thing you want to do is fall victim to a poor quality supplier. Unfortunately, there are a few people in this industry that try to pass off green logs as seasoned firewood. You now know the severe negatives associated with freshly cut logs, which is why it is even more important to find a high quality supplier. By reading testimonials you will get an honest insight into the level of quality you are likely to experience. If there are any red flags you will be alerted to them and thus you will know to look elsewhere instead.

    Log size

    Another important factor to consider is the size of the logs. There are various different reasons why this is the case. It is likely that you will have already set a storage space aside for your firewood. You will of course need to be sure that the firewood is going to fit into this space. Additionally, the size of the logs is also important when it comes to the effectiveness of the fire you experience. The right diameter will not only make sure the logs dry more efficiently but that they burn more efficiently as well.

    Cost of firewood

    As mentioned in the introduction, you will of course want to make sure you get a good deal in monetary terms when purchasing firewood. After all, one of the main reasons for going for this approach is because you can save money. Nevertheless, simply choosing logs because they are the cheapest is not an advised approach to take. Use all of the tips that have been provided in this post and then let price be your final determining factor. If something seems too good to be true, then the chances are that it probably is. You don’t want to end up purchasing freshly cut logs or one of the poor wood types that have been mentioned. It is always a good idea to look at several options in order to get an understanding of the average prices being charged.

    All in all, when it comes to using firewood as a heating source, you will undoubtedly take advantage of an abundance of benefits. You will experience a more enjoyable form of heating and one that is cheaper and more environmentally friendly as well. However, this is only the case if you are mindful of the tips that have been presented in this post and that you choose your firewood with a great amount of care. Looking for the right type of firewood and ensuring it is seasoned is of the utmost importance, so don’t overlook these aspects.

    Meeting the Home Buyers’ Demands

    Just the idea of selling a home can be stressful because depending on the condition of the home, you might have to invest more money into than you want to in order to appeal to buyers and sell it for the price you are looking for. Most homeowners end up settling for much less of a profit on their home because they do not want to put money into upgrades when they are just going to sell it. Sometimes it might be worth it just to take a lower offer and walk away, but if you are looking at getting the most out of your home, here are a few upgrades that are appealing to buyers and will guarantee a higher sell price.

    Upgrades that catch the eye

    When selling a home, curb appeal is vital. If the exterior of the home looks like trash, buyers are most likely going to move on. Those who do not move on are going to offer much less than the home is probably worth. So when you are putting your home on the market, improving the exterior is the first project you should consider. According to Improvement Center, homeowners can definitely spruce up the exterior of their home at little to no cost. Clean up the flowerbeds, plant colorful flowers, create a nice walkway with pavers, clean the driveway, and keep the lawn mowed. The difference a mowed lawn can make will surprise you, so do not underestimate the power of a cared for yard.

    Features that draw attention

    Homebuyers are typically willing to spend more on homes that have specific upgrades such as a security system or a deck. These features raise the value of a home as well as appeal to buyers. Security systems create a feel of safety and security as well as lower insurance rates, which opens the door for sellers to ask for a higher buying price. Another way to appeal to buyers as well as add a safe vibe is by replacing the front door with a steel door that is insulated. A new front door will also add to the curb appeal.

    Create more space

    Space is most often the number one selling point of a home, so homeowners who are looking to raise their home’s value should create space where they can. Sometimes that means remodeling a kitchen to open it up, or even adding onto the home to widen living space or create another bedroom or office. Before knocking down walls, however, homeowner should utilize the space they already have such as the attic or basement. Turning the attic or basement into extra living space, bedrooms, or an office is a great way to raise the asking price of the home. Remodeling a kitchen can be pricey, but an investment that is well worth the cost. Next to space, the kitchen is the next highest selling point of a home, and should meet buyers’ needs for space and upgrades.

  13. Polystyrene foam is a packaging and cushioning material made from carbon and hydrogen. It’s also known by the brand name Styrofoam. Expanded polystyrene is lightweight, contains up to 98% air, and is completely inert. EPS is made by using advanced cutting and moulding procedures to produce high quality finished surfaces on the final product. EPS foam can be identified by the number 6 plastic resin ID code. Its insulation properties and strength make it great for packaging and shipping delicate merchandise.

    new-5-kg-box-a28_f_1_350_1.jpg?ac=78432

    Insulation Properties

    Polystyrene foam has three major types of insulations: thermal, electrical, and vibrational. The foam's most known use is for white drinking cups which are ideal for hot beverages like coffee or tea. It can also be used to protect goods from damage caused by excess vibration during shipping. It does not conduct electrical current which is helpful in protecting goods with electrical components. As a bonus, polystyrene boxes can also be used as an insulator against noise.

    Shipping and Packaging Benefits

    Polystyrene foam is long lasting, and tough to destroy which makes it a great choice for making storable boxes. This type of box is light and easy to carry, which is beneficial to workers during the loading process at shipping companies. Their resistance to moisture damage makes them perfect for outdoor use and use in damp areas. This type of material is also typical for Dry Ice shipments. like fruits and vegetables. The foam is often a preferred choice for packaging smaller fragile items such as cosmetics.

    Transporting Food

    EPS is regularly used as an insulation product and will keep meats and fish cool. Some companies use a combination of EPS and cardboard boxes to get the job done. Depending on the type of food being transported, an EPS foam shipping box can be enhanced by the use of thermal gel packs that can be frozen and even reused. Alternatively, blocks of dry ice can be used without adding too much bulk. The EPS box is then set in a corrugated box for shipment. These polystyrene boxes often hold water without any help, but a liner bag can be used for extra protection. The boxes are needed because no one can truly predict the travel conditions the goods will have to face. This is a great help for those in the restaurant industry.

    Environmental Impact

    All though polystyrene foam is recyclable, a lot of it tends to end up in landfills or scattered around the nearby areas. One of its greatest strengths is also a great weakness. Its light weight creates management issues. This leads to issues like float-ability and a tendency to be blown from disposal sites even after proper disposal. Also, since it is non-biodegradable, it will be around for a very long while. Luckily, there are some forward-thinking companies out there trying to make a difference. One such company is Omega Packaging. Their factory includes its own recycle plant for EPS boxes. When unwanted and damaged boxes are brought in, Omega converts them into General Purpose Polystyrene. There’s no waste left behind.

    Polystyrene foam is popular because of its insulation properties, its strength and its light weight. Its many advantages outweigh its few disadvantages. Proper use and management of this material can reduce its environmental impact. This ensures that customers get their merchandise in great shape, companies save on transportation costs and the environment gets a needed break as well. Everybody wins.

    Different pests like insects, bugs, cockroaches, termites and many more invade your property and cause harm to you and your family. Some notorious pests like termites can severely damage the structure of a house. Hence, it is necessary to find effective ways to address this household problem. The most common method of pest control is use of chemical pesticides. Using these chemicals can be effective up to some extent. However, in the long run they can pose some serious threats to mankind and the food chain. In recent times, the use of safe and poison free pesticides has been on the rise as people have become more aware of safeguarding environment and nature. The organic pesticides are becoming more popular as they make plants and crops healthy and have no side effects.

    Unfortunately, the chemicals inside the pesticides are harmful and toxic to humans and animals. The residue found in these chemicals contaminates water, soil and air, thus affecting entire food chain. Human’s health can be seriously affected if they are exposed to it for a long period. According to studies, some serious threats of chemical pesticides are as given below.

    • Parkinson ’s disease

    • Alzheimer’s disease

    • Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder

    • Cancers

    These chemicals also affect our respiratory, reproductive and endocrine systems. Pregnant women have a higher risk of miscarriages or defective births if they are exposed to these pesticides for long duration. Children might suffer from asthma and develop learning disability. Since they have so many negative effects, it is best to avoid them and look for other options. There are many natural pest control options available like tea tree oil, garlic oil and other essential oils. Many pest control companies like Pest Control in Sydney offer effective methods to eliminate harmful pests.

    There are many options to substitute use of harmful chemical pesticides.

    1. Homemade natural pesticides

    As a homemaker, you certainly are conscious about saving money and using cost effective methods to control pests. Tea tree oil, oranges, garlic oil and other essential oils can be used to repel pests. Some people also use alcohol, salt, flour or garlic in their home to eradicate pests.

    2. Environmental friendly pesticides

    Using environmental friendly solutions to eradicate pests is an easy option. The important factor is that it should be used in correct quantity and at correct times. A good example is use of rotenone for eradicating bees. It should be applied at during the evening when the bees are less active. All earth and human friendly pesticides are good for health and environment. Using non-chemical substances to eliminate pests is a good approach to keep your home safe.

    3. Ultrasonic waves

    Another option is to use ultrasonic pest repellent. These units can be plugged into the wall electric socket. They emit ultrasonic waves that humans or most pets cannot hear. However, rodents can hear them and thus they will repel away from your house. It is a clean way to pest elimination and you can use it anytime you want.

    4. Biological pest control

    Another safe way of eliminating pests is by using biological pest control. The organisms called as predators can be used to eliminate the pests. These predators can be unleashed on the pests and these predators will eat them up. For example, if aphids are creating problems at your home, you can use predators who feed on aphids rather than spraying hazardous pesticides.

    Thus, there are many safe and environmental friendly methods to eliminate pests. However, pest control is a long-term job and you will need patience for it.
