Garden how to prepare your home garden for growing crops and preserving these crops. If you follow these guidelines and tips I share with you today I assure you that you will be very pleased with the turn-out of your garden. To start off with you will need to choose what crop you would prefer to grow. This is actually a lot harder than you may think it is. If you are a beginner or you want to start small then I would advise you not to grow a lot of crops at one time. When my grandpa and I started growing crops in his garden we started by growing potatoes, we then went to growing corn, and now we grow different varieties of crops. With a little practice you too can increase the amount of crops you grow. You will need to determine what crops you can grow in your certain land location. Certain crops can be affected by soil, rainfall, climate, or the space available. These all play a huge roll in what crops that you decide to grow. Be sure to choose a location with the requirements for the crops that you plan to grow; they will need good direct sunlight for at least six hours each day. It may be better to work within a fenced area, for this will cut down on some animals getting into your crops. You will also need to become familiar with different types of food crops. If you plan to grow your own crops for your own needs, than you will need to consider your whole diet, along with your family’s diet as well. You need to plan the layout of your garden and be sure to allow room......

...1007/s11465-013-0248-8 REVIEW ARTICLE Nannan GUO, Ming C. LEU Additive manufacturing: technology, applications and research needs © Higher Education Press and Springer-Verlag Berlin Heidelberg 2013 Abstract Additive manufacturing (AM) technology has been researched and developed for more than 20 years. Rather than removing materials, AM processes make three-dimensional parts directly from CAD models by adding materials layer by layer, offering the beneficial ability to build parts with geometric and material complexities that could not be produced by subtractive manufacturing processes. Through intensive research over the past two decades, significant progress has been made in the development and commercialization of new and innovative AM processes, as well as numerous practical applications in aerospace, automotive, biomedical, energy and other fields. This paper reviews the main processes, materials and applications of the current AM technology and presents future research needs for this technology. Keywords additive manufacturing (AM), AM processes, AM materials, AM applications 1 Introduction The ASTM F42 Technical Committee defines additive manufacturing (AM) as the “process of joining materials to make objects from three-dimensional (3D) model data, usually layer upon layer, as opposed to subtractive manufacturing methodologies” [1]. It is also known as additive fabrication, additive processes, direct digital manufacturing, rapid prototyping, rapid......

The Resin Identification Codes assigns these resins with a number from 1 to 6, which are polyethylene terephthalate (PETE); high density polyethylene (HDPE); polyvinyl chloride (PVC or vinyl); low density polyethylene (LDPE); polypropylene (PP); or polystyrene (PS). The coding system also includes a seventh code which is labeled as "other." The principal roles of coding system for these resins are to provide a consistent national system to help consumers and manufacturers efficiently identify and sort plastics for recycling. The coding system is also enable individuals to maintain and perform quality control before recycling, which help to make sure the recycled plastic is as homogenous as possible. Hence, all these seven codes......

Garden Edging

...In simple words, edging refers to separation between lawn, garden, and pavements. But there’s a lot more to edging than just separating parts of ground. It is an important part of landscaping that serves to keep the garden neat, separate it into regions and provide a better appearance to the land. The choice of material used in edging depends on the budget, available time and whether it suits the requirement and looks of your garden. Below is a brief account of some materials used in edging. Metal borders Simple to install, durable and flexible to use are the strips of steel, aluminium, copper or plastic. They are sleek, durable and their top can be covered within grass or soil making them almost invisible and allowing us to mow over the top. They can be easily bent to give shapes of beautiful curves. Aluminium being the lightest and durable is more in use these days. However they are only best used for level ground without much undulation, and their sharp top edge can easily cut bare feet. So, the top should be rounded off after installation. Log edging Log and Bamboo edging can be laid by keeping logs that are well seasoned upright and driven into the ground like piles. Combined with gravel backing, they not only help to retain the lawn soil that may be on the ground or raised, but also gives a seaside appearance to the garden. They can be modified or cut on the top portion to give a wavy appearance, and coloured varyingly to create pleasing looks. Brick and concrete...

It all begins with acquiring the printing device, it comes in kits, complete devices, or even your buddy with their own printer could “print you off” a copy of their device. All you would need after getting your printer set up would extra polymer spools, a computer with the program to translate the instructions of the build, and the digital instructions for your build. 3D Printing is the process of using a computer controlled printing head that travels along the X,Y, and Z axis that leave layers of molten plastic or bio organic material on a flat surface or The prices of 3D Printers vary by model, make and the company who makes it. The cheapest home built device may cost between 150-300 dollars to professional built devices ranging from 6000 to 48,000 dollars. The process of selecting which device is right for your needs depends on a lot of factors; your price range, type of computer, what you will be manufacturing, how big the item is you would like to make, availability of resources, and your mind, the sky is the limit.

The Cup

...Lloyd Williams Geoffrey Agnor 7/12/14 Humanities The Cup Khyentse Norbu’s “The Cup” (Comedy, 1999) the World Cup is being held in France while two young refugees arrive at a monastery in India. While the setting and feel of the monastery would usually be serene and peaceful, it is disrupted by the excitement and hype about the world cup. The main anticipator of the World Cup is a young and mischievous student named Orgyen. Orgyen nows that the World Cup is very important to him, as do many other young boys in the monastery, and he will do anything it takes to be able to watch as much of the games as he can. As this occurs, the head of the monastery contemplates on the changes of the world and how this greatly is affecting the young boys in the monastery. Although technology and tradition and this undying difference, they can ultimately come together and create something great for both the students and the Abbot. The students, particularly Orgyen, idolize soccer and the World Cup. The fascination and wonders of other cultures bring them into a deeper love for the sport and the thrill that comes with the World Cup. These students are willing to do almost anything to be able to experience the World Cup, especially Orgyen. He goes over the line, bringing other students along, and sneaks out to watch one of the games at a place they paid money for. However, the Geko and Abbot are not at all concerned with this idea of soccer and other cultures. They only wish that the......

We cover our food in plastic wrap, drink coffee from Styrofoam cup, wear clothes made from man made fibres like rayon, nylon and polyeseter, and even buy our plastic things with plastic credit cards! Plastic is a versatile product. It can be flexible or rigid, transparent or opaque. The basic raw materials for plastic are petroleum and/or natural gas. These fossil fuel are sometimes combine d with other elements such as Oxygen and Chlorine to make different types of plastic. What all things made of plastic are we as students employees and managers adding to the environment? Pens, which are made of plastic and are the day to day requirements are being used by students. These days “USE AND THROW” policy is the trend. So everybody likes to buy a plastic disposable pen costing Rs. 5 or 10 and easily using It for maximum 2-3 days and discarding it. Have we ever thought that where these all added pollutants are going to be or how can we reduce this all? From the Stone Age to the Metallic Age and now to the Plastic Age! The world is spinning at a wink of an eye. The motto f today’s generation is “Be quick and get way”. So they want everything in life and of......

...Ban Plastic! Reduce, Reuse and Recycle, the three R’s plays a significant role in protection of the environment. Plastics add to litter and landfills. My opinion is to eliminate the plastic bag because it contaminates the water, badly affects the human health and destroys the environment. First, without water no one sustains for long. Plastic bag plays significant role in contamination of water bodies such as ocean, sea, lakes and rivers. For example, 90% of industrial wastes are dumped into water every year. Plastic stands at the top list of industrial wastes. In addition to that plastic bag act as a carrier of food waste as well as electronic waste to the water. Eventually end up in destroying the aquatic life system. Second, large disposal of plastics lead to create various disease which poses serious threat to the human health. For instance, a recent study conducted by Cathy Cirko, President of Canadian Plastics Industry Association revealed that reused plastic bags even showed higher levels of bacteria and toxins. Therefore the foods we carry from different stores in these bags are exposed to contamination. Moreover, a disease pop up and distracts the health of a normal person. Landfills, considered as the storage place of plastics named the critics for development of crucial diseases. Finally, plastic bags destroy the environment by making it as its dumb yard. Recycling of plastic bags increases the pollution. Air and water which are the functional part of a living......

...BLOW MOLDING Introduction Blow molding is defined as a plastic process whereby a thermoplastic material is heated to its forming temperature, which is below that of the plastic materials being used; at its melting point it is made to form a hollow tube called a parison or preform. This heated homogeneous plastic material is then placed between two female molds that are cooled through some medium. The two female molds close on the heated parison or preform and a gas, usually air, enters via an open end of the parison via a blow pin or needle; the gas is blown into the closed female mold halves, taking the shape of the internal female closed mold, allow to cool, and is then sent out through an exhaust. The two female molds are then separated and the cooled, shaped hollow part is then ejected or allowed to drop out for the cycle to repeat. In the first attempt over 100 years ago, to blow-mold hollow objects, two sheets of cellulose nitrate were clamped between two female mold halves. Steam injected between the sheets softened the material, sealed the edges, and expanded the heated sheets to form the inside shape of the two female mold halves. The high flammability of cellulose nitrate, however, limited the usefulness of this technique. In the early 1930s, more suitable materials, such as cellulose acetate and polystyrene (PS), were developed; these led to the introduction, by Plax Corp. and Owens-Illinois, of automated equipment based on glass-blowing......

...Tiles 陶質磚 由陶土製造後,面層再上釉,有防水及保護作用 Because of its durability and smooth, clean look, ceramic tile is commonly used for wet areas in and around showers, regardless of what other materials are specified for the remainder of the locker room - although those surfaces are often tile, too. Unfortunately, smoothness can lead to slipperiness, and grout can attract large amounts of mold and bacteria. Still, allegiance among architects to ceramic tile remains strong. "If a client were to ask me what I would recommend, it would be ceramic tile," Kastelic says. "The maintenance issues are minimal compared to the benefits. It's a durable finish, it has good slip resistance if you use unglazed one-by-one- or two-by-two-inch tiles, and it provides lots of options with colors and designs, which we as architects love. If you go with medium- to dark-colored tiles and use deeper-colored grouts and appropriate sealers, you won't have to deal with as many of the mold and staining issues as you might otherwise. Tiles are a popular option for changing room flooring because there are a wide variety meaning you can customise the look to suit. Tiles need little maintenance because they are waterproof and easy to keep clean. Tiles are hard wearing so last a long time under regular use meaning they are a good long term solutions. antibacterial agent and configured so that the squares snap together to form mats that are laid directly over concrete, ceramic tile and other wet area surfaces.......

...types of plastics can be recycled by most municipal governments. The fraction that does get recycled still requires a lot of energy and water which just isn’t a good proposition when it comes to single-use items. Plastic garbage that ends up in landfills and oceans take hundreds of years to degrade, and there’s increasing concern about the toxins they release into the environment. But in our modern lives, plastic surrounds us and cutting it out can seem daunting. Below are some super easy ways to get started. Bring your own shopping bag Stop buying bottled water Choose cardboard over plastic bottles and bags Say no to straw Re-think your food storage Shop in bulk    Stop using plastic straws, even in restaurants. If a straw is a must, purchase a reusable stainless steel or glass straw Use a reusable produce bag. A single plastic bag can take 1,000 years to degrade. Purchase or make your own reusable produce bag and be sure to wash them often!  Give up gum. Gum is made of a synthetic rubber, aka plastic.  Buy boxes instead of bottles. Often, products like laundry detergent come in cardboard which is more easily recycled than plastic. Purchase food, like cereal, pasta, and rice from bulk bins and fill a reusable bag or container. You save money and unnecessary packaging.  Reuse containers for storing leftovers or shopping in bulk. Use a reusable bottle or mug for your beverages, even when ordering from a to-go shop .  Use matches instead of disposable plastic......
