Posted on in by In our previous articles about and the limited supplies of fresh water we have, it was clear that water is one of our most precious resources. P Considering that every single person on the planet needs water to survive, it seems strange that many of us would have no problem leaving the tap water running but we would go to war if someone tried to steal our oil supply. P While and saving some money on home energy is important, take a moment and get back to basics. P For the sake of your family and the survival of our future generations, explore these 5 reasons why conserving water is important to you. The Importance of Water Conservation Reason #1:P Without fresh water you will die in just a few days. P Plain and simple, no sugar coating, it is a simple morbid fact that
METEOROLOGIST JEFF HABY The troposphere is the layer of the atmosphere closest to the earth's surface where the weather takes place. The warmest temperatures in the troposphere are near the surface with the coldest temperatures being at the top of the troposphere. Although the sun light comes from the top to the bottom of the atmosphere, the troposphere is primarily heated from the bottom. This is because the surface is much better at absorbing a wide range of solar radiation as compared to the air. Much of the sunlight filters down through the air and to the surface. Certain gases do absorb radiation and warm the air such as carbon dioxide and ozone. However, a great amount of solar radiation makes it to the surface. The surface is warmed by the sun and then this energy is distributed
Australia uses an, and potential jurors are randomly selected from an. Jurors receive a small payment for each day of attendance. Employers are also required to pay their employees "make-up pay", that is, the usual pay the employee would have earned from working, less the jury duty payment received from the state. Under the National Employment Standards, make-up pay is required only for the first ten days of jury service - however the laws of Victoria, Queensland and Western Australia extend the make-up pay requirement for the entire duration of the jury service. The jury system in New South Wales is administered by the Jury Services Branch of the Office of the Sheriff of New South Wales, an office in the, and operates in accordance with the Jury Act 1977 and Jury Amendment Act 2010.
This question was asked by Joseph from Plymouth, UK. P Although gravity has always existed on Earth, it wasn t until the 17th century that we began to understand exactly what it is. A famous physicist called Isaac Newton realised that there must be a reason why objects always fall downwards. The legend tells that he realised this after an apple fell onto his head while he was sitting under a tree; although this is probably untrue it s a funny story. Isaac Newton worked out that this reason is a force called gravity. Any object that has mass (it takes up space and has density) has gravity, which means that it pulls other objects towards itself. This gravitational pull becomes stronger the closer to the object you are, and the bigger the object is. So although people have gravity it s so
Until recently, Iвd never given canned milk much thought. But last summer, I was following a new recipe for potato saladВthat called for evaporated milk, and I mistakenly used condensed milk. Having ruined the salad, I decided it was time to figure out what was what. Both evaporated and condensed milk begin as fresh milk. The milk undergoes a vacuum process that evaporates over half the volume of water and concentrates the nutritive part of the milk. Evaporated milk is then poured into cans that are heatsterilized to prevent spoilage. The ultrahigh temperatures of sterilization cause the milk sugars to caramelize and give evaporated milk its characteristic cooked taste. In the end, evaporated milk has the consistency of light cream and a tint that ranges from ivory to pale amber.
Watermelon is a highly anticipated summer treat. (Image: Thinkstock/Comstock/Getty Images) Vine-ripened watermelons are a clear confirmation that summer has arrived. Plant stresses such as pests, leaf diseases and poor nutrition will affect the health and taste of watermelons. According to the University of Minnesota, irregular watering patterns alter the quality of sugar and cause watermelons to split on the vine before maturing. Watermelons need large drinks of water, at least 1 to 2 inches deep, weekly. Shallow watering that only wets the soil can cause fruit rot and other unsightly blemishes. Watermelon deprived of sufficient water when fruits are young may develop blossom end rot or end up small and malformed. ...
The Universal Capability of NAND and NOR Gates NAND and NOR gates are universal logic gates. The AND, Or, Nor and Inverter functions can all be performed using only NAND gates. The AND, OR, NAND and Inverter functions can all be performed using only NOR gates. An inverter can be made from a NAND or a NOR by connecting all inputs of the gate together. If the output of a NAND gate is inverted, it becomes an AND function. If the output of a NOR gate is inverted, it becomes an OR function. If the inputs to a NAND gate are inverted, the gate becomes an OR function. If the inputs to a NOR gate are inverted, the gate becomes an AND function. When NAND gates are used to make the OR function and the output is inverted, the function becomes NOR. When NOR gates are used to jake the AND function and
In central heating systems, heat is supplied by a single unit and ducted to outlets in the floor or ceiling of rooms/spaces inside the house. Most central heating systems use hot air, though heated water passing through radiators or underfloor pipes can also be used. For homes, separate room heaters are more common than central heating. Most central heating systems use gas or electricity, but some use energy-efficient sources such as, waste heat recovery, or the absorption of passive heat (for example, solar radiation). Though both air and water have reasonable heat storage capacity, there are always some energy losses between the heating unit and the room. These heat losses can be reduced by minimising the length of duct/pipe run, minimising cross-section area, maximising flow rate,
Where did Red Wings octopus tradition come from? I grew up in the Detroit area, now I live in Utah. I know that at Detroit Red Wings games we had a tradition in the playoffs of throwing an octopus on the ice. But I can t for the life of me remember why! - Tawnia It s truly a sight to see for any Hockey fan: when the Red Wings win a playoff game, you might see an octopus make an appearance center ice. In fact, some fans even smuggle the creatures into the arena inside their coats! But what s with the odd tradition? The Motor City s proud tradition of saluting the Detroit Red Wings with slimy creatures of the deep dates back over half a century. The first octopus landed on the ice during the 1952 Stanley Cup run, courtesy of brothers Pete and Jerry Cusimano, who owned a fish market. If you
