The Canberra Battery Test Centre’s 7th Report: 83% Faulty

YPE html PUBLIC “-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN” “http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-transitional.dtd”> Of 18 batteries tested, 7 didn’t need repair or replacement and only 3 batteries passed the testing without issue: Sony Fortelion, Samsung AIO, and Pylontech. Sony was the best performer by my reckoning. Good news!  The Canberra Battery Test Centre have released their 7th report.  I admit I’m a little behind in reporting this because it wasn’t released this month, or last month, or even the month before that.  It came out all the way back in September.  But it’s their fault I’m so late writing about it.  They normally take eight months to put out a report, but this time it only took them four months.  I was shocked, shocked I tell you!  And you may be shocked too when I reveal that of the 18 battery systems tested so far only 7 didn’t need to be repaired, replaced, or buried at midnight under a crossroad. Just how shocked you are by this probably depends on whether or not you’ve kept up with their previous reports.  If you’re familiar with them then it’s no surprise that all is not well in home battery land: As two article titles ...

Using inexpensive and readily available materials such as an aboveground swimming pool you can get fresh

Using inexpensive and readily available materials such as an aboveground swimming pool you can get fresh fish from your back yard. “By raising your own fish, you can achieve a higher level of self-sufficiency and provide a healthier diet for your family,” says Steven Van Gorder, author of Small-Scale Aquaculture. “Backyard fish farming is as practical as gardening for producing food for the family.” Van Gorders book explains backyard aquaculture in detail, with plans and step-by-step instructions that can help you successfully raise fish even if your only source of water is a garden hose. Puanani Burgess, executive director of the Waianae Coast Community Alternative Development Corp. in Waianae, Hawaii, says the methods “look so simple that everyone thinks, ‘Hey, I can do it.’” Fourteen years ago, Burgess’ group formed a micro-aquaculture cooperative, which hundreds of islanders have participated in over the years. Historically, aquaculture has something of a bad reputation because it has been limited to large commercial facilities that require significant amounts of water and energy, and thus can be major sources of pollution. In contrast, Van Gorders systems blend 4,000-year-...

Croda International Resilient performance despite subdued market conditions

Croda International Plc (LON: CRDA), the speciality chemical company that creates high performance ingredients and technologies relied upon by industries and consumers globally, has today announced its half year results for the six months ended 30 June 2019. “We have delivered a resilient performance in challenging market conditions and against strong prior year comparatives, testament to Croda’s focused strategy. Although Personal Care was significantly impacted by the US/China trade dispute and new sales legislation in China, we saw growth across the rest of the sector. An excellent performance in Life Sciences ensured overall progress in consumer markets, whilst Performance Technologies slowed in line with the wider industry, due to softer end markets in automotive and polymers. “We have a strong pipeline, a robust business model and a strategy to leverage innovation, customer intimacy and sustainability. Life Sciences is expected to show continued progress and in Personal Care we anticipate the US remaining subdued while Asia recovers progressively. Performance Technologies is likely to remain softer until end markets improve. Based on the current challenging economic condit...

“The trouble will come when the products are mixed and some blends prove incompatible with one

“The trouble will come when the products are mixed and some blends prove incompatible with one another: when a more aromatic 0.5% product comes into contact with a more paraffinic blend, the products are likely to separate and form sludge, blocking filters.” Jack Jordan, a researcher with S&P Global Platts. Image: © vectorpocket/AdobeStock (This is excerpted from Maritime Reporter & Engineering News’ January 2020 “The Path to Zero” column.) Are the world’s ships’ engines ready for IMO compliant very low sulfur fuel?  That’s a wide open question as ship owners step to the end of the preparatory gang-plank on January 1, 2020 when 0.5% very low sulfur distillate fuels (VLSF) have to replace residual heavy fuel oil (HFO) containing 3.5% sulfur. You might think that given the length of time to prepare – since 2008 – shipping experts and engineers would have a clearer picture about new fuels and marine engines and operability.  That newer engines and systems, for example, might fare better than older equipment.  Or that trial runs so far are proving optimistic – we can do this.  Or even a rather grim warning: there aren’t any general conclusions – ever...

In the North this summer, a devastating offensive is underway. Enemy forces have seized huge swaths

In the North this summer, a devastating offensive is underway. Enemy forces have seized huge swaths of territory; with each passing week, another 22,000 square miles of Arctic ice disappears. Experts dispatched to the battlefield in July saw little cause for hope, especially since this siege is one of the oldest fronts in the war. “In 30 years, the area has shrunk approximately by half,” said a scientist who examined the onslaught. “There doesn’t seem anything able to stop this.” In the Pacific this spring, the enemy staged a daring breakout across thousands of miles of ocean, waging a full-scale assault on the region’s coral reefs. In a matter of months, long stretches of formations like the Great Barrier Reef—dating back past the start of human civilization and visible from space—were reduced to white bone-yards. Day after day, week after week, saboteurs behind our lines are unleashing a series of brilliant and overwhelming attacks. In the past few months alone, our foes have used a firestorm to force the total evacuation of a city of 90,000 in Canada, drought to ravage crops to the point where southern Africans are literally eating their seed corn, and floods to threaten the ...

Lawyers for Vanessa Bryant, the widow of Lakers great Kobe Bryant, on Monday filed a wrongful-death

Lawyers for Vanessa Bryant, the widow of Lakers great Kobe Bryant, on Monday filed a wrongful-death lawsuit against the company that operated the helicopter that crashed into a California hillside last month, killing her husband, 13-year-old daughter and seven others. The suit was filed on the same day that thousands of fans gathered at the Staples Center in Los Angeles to remember Bryant and his daughter Gianna. The lawsuit alleges that the helicopter company, Island Express, was “vicariously liable” for any and all actions of pilot Ara George Zobayan, including his “negligent and careless piloting.” “Defendant Island Express Helicopters authorized and/or permitted a flight with full knowledge that the subject helicopter was flying into unsafe weather conditions,” the suit filed in Los Angeles County Superior Court alleges. The suit also faults Zobayan for failing to “properly monitor and assess” the weather before takeoff and for failing to “abort the flight when he knew of the cloudy conditions.” In an emailed statement, a spokesman for Island Express said: “This was a tragic accident. We will have no comment on the pending litigation.” Bryant, who regularly flew in helicopte...

Amazon.com starts direct sales of merchandise in Brazil after delays

SAO PAULO (Reuters) – Amazon.com Inc is launching its long-awaited in-house fulfillment and delivery network in Brazil after months of delays caused by complicated logistics and a highly complex tax system in the largest Latin American economy. Amazon, which some rivals had expected to kick off direct sales of items beyond books as soon as the Christmas selling season, said it will directly sell 11 categories of merchandise from over 800 suppliers from L’Oreal to Black & Decker as of Tuesday. Its shift to stocking and delivering goods itself from acting mostly as a marketplace is expected to intensify competition for fast delivery of goods in Latin America’s largest economy as it exits a painful recession. “We are launching (our direct sales platform) with 320,000 different products in stock, including 200,000 books… Our obsession is always to increase this catalog and to have everything Brazilian consumers seek and want to buy on the internet”, Amazon’s Brazilian country manager Alex Szapiro told Reuters. In November, Reuters reported that Amazon’s attempt to advance with its so-called Fulfillment by Amazon program in Brazil had run into difficulties such as the...

See How This DIY Duo Totally Transformed Their Tired Brooklyn Brownstone – Home Tour

Falling in love, like finding your dream home, rarely happens overnight. It requires tenacity, a solid checklist, and near-perfect timing. So was the case for Barry Bordelon and Jordan Slocum — the DIY-loving couple behind The Brownstone Boys. “We took a risk and purchased a place together after having only dated for one-and-a-half years,” the couple admit, rather frankly. “We met on a dating site and had our first date in one of our mutually favorite bars, right here in Brooklyn. We were both looking for someone to spend a life with and we immediately found that we were on the same page on almost everything — our love of travel, music, food, Brooklyn — and of course, we shared this dream of creating a home here.” Passion — for both each other and the prospect of restoring a tired, towering Bedford-Stuyvesant brownstone back to its pre-war glory — is still the glue that binds. Bordelon had done it all before, in a roundabout way. In 2011, he purchased his first apartment, flipped it, made a tidy profit and moved on to the next. Multiple properties, a sound portfolio, a smart broker, and the wherewithal to know when to take a risk, led Bordelon to “...

Upset Hindus urge Baltimore jewelry firm to withdraw Lord “Ganesh Toe Ring” & apologize

Upset Hindus are urging Baltimore (Maryland) based online company, The Irish Gem Jewelry, to immediately withdraw “Ganesh Toe Ring”; calling it highly inappropriate. Distinguished Hindu statesman Rajan Zed, in a statement in Nevada today, said that Lord Ganesh was highly revered in Hinduism and was meant to be worshipped in temples or home shrines and not to adorn one’s toe. Inappropriate usage of Hindu deities or concepts or symbols for commercial or other agenda was not okay as it hurts the devotees. Zed, who is President of Universal Society of Hinduism, also urged The Irish Gem Jewelry CEO to offer a formal apology, besides withdrawing “Ganesh Toe Ring” from the website. Hinduism was the oldest and third largest religion of the world with about 1.1 billion adherents and a rich philosophical thought and it should not be taken frivolously. Symbols of any faith, larger or smaller, should not be mishandled, Rajan Zed noted. In Hinduism, Lord Ganesh is worshipped as god of wisdom and remover of obstacles and is invoked before the beginning of any major undertaking. There are about three million Hindus in USA. 925 Sterling Silver Jewelry “Ganesh Toe Ring”, described as .925 Sterl...
