The Awnings Can Be Made With Transparent Plastics

Submitted by: Carlos Mello

The Awning crystal, known as ” transparent ” curtain, it is indicated for closing of atmospheres that need to protect against the cold, the wind and the moderate rain, without losing the visibility, because their main characteristic is the transparency.

The awning crystal doesn’t have the internal plot, therefore their mechanics qualities are limited and inferior to the one of the canvas of PVC. If be picked up wet and stay closed for some time, the water doesn’t evaporate and ” penetrates ” in the crystal, leaving it with a characteristic “milk”.

This problem will disappears completely after some time open “taking sun”.

The manufacturing of the awning crystal is in two ways:

Horizontal welds:

Less numbers of welds, however can have shrink in the width after some weeks, because the product doesn’t possess the internal plot. Due to the static energy generated by the attrition in the rolling up and the extremely flat surface, the awning Crystal “glues” if it is coiled for several hours.

Vertical welds (recommended):

There will be a weld on average each 1.35 meters and whole strips are used.

In the center or in the extremities there will be a smaller strip in agreement with the use of the material. In the lateral ones, there will be reinforcement in Crystal (equal the amendment) of 2.5 centimeters.

In the sense of the vertical welds the shrink doesn’t exist, however, when opening the awning crystal they will appear waves, which will disappear in few minutess.

Comparing with the horizontal weld, that vertical method “glues” less when coiled.

Lexmark releases printer with built-in CD burner

Wednesday, September 14, 2005

Lexmark International introduced the Lexmark P450 in the USA yesterday, the first printer to have a built-in CD burner. The CD burner allows users to copy photos from their camera directly to CD without requiring the printer to be connected to a computer.

The P450 is a small, portable printer that can print 4in by 6in photos. Photos can be printed from USB flash drives, memory cards, Bluetooth devices and PictBridge compatible digital cameras. The printer includes a 2.4-inch color LCD from which users can perform basic editing tasks such as cropping, rotating, and removing red-eye.

“The Lexmark P450 brings more photo processing functions to the home. People can now save and organize their digital photos on CD, print from a cell phone, view their photos on a television and much more. The Lexmark P450 is quite intuitive, easy to use and affordably priced,” said Najib Bahous, president of Lexmark’s Consumer Printer Division.

This printer will compete with many other portable printers such as the popular and slightly cheaper HP Photosmart 375.

The Lexmark P450 is scheduled to be released in the USA in October, with an estimated retail price of $199USD, and Canada in November, with an estimated retail price of $299CAD. It is scheduled to be released in other countries shortly thereafter.

    Police report drug haul seizure worth up to £30 million in Brownhills, England

    Monday, December 2, 2013

    Police in the West Midlands in England today said nearly 200 kilograms worth of drugs with value possibly as great as £30 million (about US$49 million or €36 million) has been seized from a unit in the town of Brownhills. In what an officer described as “one of the largest [seizures] in the force’s 39 year history”, West Midlands Police reported recovering six big cellophane-wrapped cardboard boxes containing cannabis, cocaine, and MDMA (“ecstasy”) in a police raid operation on the Maybrook Industrial Estate in the town on Wednesday.

    The impact this seizure will have on drug dealing in the region and the UK as a whole cannot be underestimated

    The seized boxes, which had been loaded onto five freight pallets, contained 120 one-kilogram bags of cannabis, 50 one-kilogram bags of MDMA, and five one-kilogram bricks of cocaine. In a press release, West Midlands Police described what happened after officers found the drugs as they were being unloaded in the operation. “When officers opened the boxes they discovered a deep layer of protective foam chips beneath which the drugs were carefully layered”, the force said. “All the drugs were wrapped in thick plastic bags taped closed with the cannabis vacuum packed to prevent its distinctive pungent aroma from drawing unwanted attention.” Police moved the drugs via forklift truck to a flatbed lorry to remove them.

    Detective Sergeant Carl Russell of West Midlands Police’s Force CID said the seizure was the largest he had ever made in the 24 years he has been in West Midlands Police and one of the biggest seizures the force has made since its formation in 1974. “The impact this seizure will have on drug dealing in the region and the UK as a whole cannot be underestimated”, he said. “The drugs had almost certainly been packed to order ready for shipping within Britain but possibly even further afield. Our operation will have a national effect and we are working closely with a range of law enforcement agencies to identify those involved in this crime at whatever level.”

    Expert testing on the drugs is ongoing. Estimates described as “conservative” suggest the value of the drugs amounts to £10 million (about US$16.4 million or €12 million), although they could be worth as much as £30 million, subject to purity tests, police said.

    Police arrested three men at the unit on suspicion of supplying a controlled drug. The men, a 50-year-old from Brownhills, a 51-year-old from the Norton area of Stoke-on-Trent in Staffordshire, and one aged 53 from Brownhills, have been released on bail as police investigations to “hunt those responsible” continue. West Midlands Police told Wikinews no person has yet been charged in connection with the seizure. Supplying a controlled drug is an imprisonable offence in England, although length of jail sentences vary according to the class and quantity of drugs and the significance of offenders’ roles in committing the crime.

    Strongest earthquake in 40 years hits Southeast Asia
    Posted in Uncategorized | April 9th, 2021

    Sunday, December 26, 2004

    Indian Ocean – The death toll continues to grow and millions face a homeless life in the new year as coastal communities in south Asia struggle against continued aftershocks and flooding caused by the largest earthquake to strike the planet in more than a generation.

    The magnitude 9.0 undersea megathrust earthquake struck off the western coast of Sumatra, Indonesia on December 26, 2004, at 00:58:50 UTC (or 07:58:50 local time in Jakarta and Bangkok).

    The earthquake was the strongest in the world since the 9.2-magnitude Good Friday Earthquake which struck Alaska, USA in 1964, and the fourth largest since 1900. More than 140,000 deaths[1] were caused by resulting tsunami, which in Thailand were up to 10 meters (33 feet) tall, and struck within three hours of the initial event.

    Multiple tsunamis struck and ravaged coastal regions all over the Indian Ocean, devastating regions including the Indonesian province of Aceh, the coast of Sri Lanka, coastal areas of the Indian state of Tamil Nadu, the resort island of Phuket, Thailand, and even as far away as Somalia, 4,100 km (2,500 mi) west of the epicenter.

    While the earthquake and the tsunamis are no longer ongoing (other than aftershocks), the humanitarian and economic crisis generated by the disaster is still ongoing. This report will attempt to cover the crisis as it continues to develop.

    Canadian media company Bell Globemedia to acquire rival CHUM

    Canadian media company Bell Globemedia to acquire rival CHUM
    Posted in Uncategorized | April 8th, 2021

    Wednesday, July 12, 2006

    Canadian media company CHUM Limited has announced that it has agreed to be acquired by larger rival Bell Globemedia Inc. for $1.7 billion CAD cash, bringing the CTV and Citytv broadcast-television networks and such specialty channels as MuchMusic, TSN and Bravo! under the same corporate umbrella.

    Shareholders will receive $52.50 per common share of CHUM and $47.25 per Class B (non-voting) share. The estate of the late Allan Waters, who died late last year, has agreed to tender all its shares to the bid, netting the Waters family nearly $450 million.

    In a joint statement, CHUM’s chairman, Jim Waters, said, “In Bell Globemedia’s offer, we not only found value for shareholders, but confidence that we would be placing CHUM in the hands of an owner with the financial resources and track record to continue to grow and build on our collective legacy.”

    Globemedia CEO Ivan Fecan added, “We are able to make this premium offer because Bell Globemedia is clearly the most logical buyer of CHUM. There is a unique strategic fit to our operations that can make the united company a stronger national champion in broadcasting. We intend to maintain and build the valuable CHUM brands and develop more opportunities for Canadian programming.” He added that CTV and Citytv will remain separate networks and “will maintain separate and independent news divisions in order to ensure a continued diversity and competition in news coverage.”

    In a separate release, CHUM announced it would be cutting 281 jobs at its stations across the country, particularly at its Citytv stations in western Canada. Effectively immediately, evening newscasts at CKVU-TV Vancouver, CKEM-TV Edmonton, CKAL-TV Calgary and CHMI-TV in the Winnipeg market are being eliminated, with plans for a new newsmagazine tentatively titled In Your City at the three Prairie stations, and more resources being put into each station’s local version of Breakfast Television. Less drastic changes are planned for its A-Channel stations in smaller markets. The company said these changes will result “in a significant reduction in staffing and operating costs.”

    The companies said that they expect to sell CHUM’s A-Channel stations, as well as Alberta educational broadcaster Access, to third parties, despite CTV’s historical ties to several of them. Many of the A-Channel stations were originally acquired by CHUM from Baton Broadcasting, the predecessor of Bell Globemedia, in 1997, as part of a trade that sent CHUM’s ATV and ASN assets in Atlantic Canada to Baton and allowed Baton to acquire the CTV network itself.

    Despite CHUM’s ownership of MuchMusic and CTV’s recent launch of MTV Canada, the companies claim their specialty channels are “complementary” and did not indicate any sale plans.

    Bell Globemedia is currently majority-owned by BCE Inc. but is awaiting regulatory approval for a restructuring involving the Ontario Teachers Pension Plan, Torstar Corp., and the Thomson family. In the interim, the takeover offer will be made by a new company owned by the proposed new shareholder structure.

    Russian territory expands by 4.5 square kilometres after seismic activity

    Russian territory expands by 4.5 square kilometres after seismic activity
    Posted in Uncategorized | April 8th, 2021

    Saturday, November 14, 2009

    According to scientists, the land territory of Russia has expanded by about 4.5 square kilometres within the last few years in the Far East due to seismic and volcanic activity.

    The gained land was recorded in the Sakhalin Peninsula. Boris Levin, head of the Institute for Sea Geology and Geophysics of the Russian Academy of Sciences, said that the increase happened primarily due to two seismic events.

    The first, in August of 2007, was when a heavy 6.8 earthquake near the city of Nevelsk in the Far East raised about three square kilometres of seabed above the level of the water. The second was in June of this year, when the Sarychev Peak volcano on the Matua Island erupted. GPS trackers on the Matua island were used to monitor the eruption, and the volcano changed its shape, adding 1.5 square kilometres of land, scientists said.

    Geologists also reported that the Kuril Islands nearby were slowly moving towards mainland Russia at an estimated rate of eighteen milimetres per year.

    Early morning fire kills four New York group home residents
    Posted in Uncategorized | April 7th, 2021

    Sunday, March 22, 2009

    After an early morning fire began, four out of the nine people living at the Riverview Individual Residential Alternative group home located in Wells, New York were killed by the blaze. The Sunmount Developmental Disabilities Services Office, which supervises the home, told the media that the fire started at approximately 5:30 AM Eastern Daylight Time. Two staff members were at the home at the time, who safely evacuated four of the five survivors.

    The names of the residents killed in the fire were not able to be released due to New York’s Mental Hygiene Law, but are able to be identified as two adult men, aged 32 and 52, and two adult women, aged 43 and 60. A 71-year-old male was injured in the fire, and was taken to a hospital in Utica, a nearby city. The other four residents have been relocated to an unnamed group home. Both staff members are also being examined at the hospital.

    “On behalf of all New Yorkers, I wish to extend my heartfelt condolences to the families, loved ones and friends of the four victims and to continue to pray for the full recovery of those five people and two staff members who survived this incident. I also want to express my thanks and appreciation for the first responders and volunteers who worked swiftly and diligently to respond to this tragedy,” David Patterson, the governor of New York, said to the media.

    The exact cause of the fire has yet to be determined. However, the New York Civil Liberties Union stated that “the blaze appears to have been an electrical fire and the sprinkler system was knocked out immediately.” They also called for “an immediate investigation into the causes of and contributing factors of the fire.”

    The New York State Department of State Office of Fire Prevention and Control is currently investigating the causes of the blaze, with help from New York State Police Bureau of Criminal Investigation and the New York State Commission on Quality of Care and Advocacy for Persons with Disabilities.

    Alternative Health Products: The Natural Way to Digestive Health

    by

    Chris Robertson

    A common question asked by patients of natural medicine practitioners is how to achieve healthy digestive function naturally. This is a great question to explore, because so many of us struggle with indigestion, constipation, diarrhea or other gastric upset. Here’s an overview of a few of the alternative health products that may keep your digestion running smoothly.

    HCL (Hydrochloride): If you’re over sixty, or past menopause, and often experience bloating, indigestion, diarrhea or aren’t able to tolerate oral supplements, it’s possible these symptoms are caused by a lack of gastric acid secretion by the stomach. Without this acid secretion, what you eat isn’t fully digested and causes all kinds of digestive upsets. Nutritional supplement experts are advocating the ingestion of HCL to aid in the digestion of protein, in particular.

    Lipase: This plant enzyme is reported by natural health advocates to be helpful in the metabolism of fat. The inability to properly metabolize fat can be seen in two ways: constant stomach upset or the inability to gain weight. Lipase has also been found to be important in the correct processing of triglycerides and other harmful fats.

    L-Acidophilus: This probiotic is essential for complete digestion of food. People with low levels of this microorganism in their digestive systems might, for example, have trouble digesting dairy foods. For that reason, some products such as milk and yogurt may have L-Acidophilus added to aid in their digestion. Also look for L-Acidophilus in supplement form.

    YouTube Preview Image

    Berberine: A plant alkaloid found in several plant species, berberine has long been used by Chinese medicine practitioners. They believe it to be helpful to inhibit fungus such as yeast in the digestive tract, while not harming helpful microorganisms.

    Fiber Supplements: Many recent studies have proven the benefit of dietary fiber. It’s been touted as the simplest method of lowering cholesterol and reducing the risk of heart disease. If you find it difficult to eat enough fiber every day, a fiber supplement can provide the same benefit, as well as cleansing the digestive tract and preventing constipation.

    One of the best fiber supplement ingredients to look for is psyllium husks, which absorb large amounts of water and form a sticky substance that removes hardened matter from the colon. Natural remedies such as psyllium husks keep the colon clear without pharmaceuticals.

    L-Carnitine: One of the most popular amino acid supplements is L-Carnitine, which supplements the same amino acid your liver creates when you eat meat. If you’re a vegetarian, you must find another way to introduce this essential amino acid into your system, as it helps to metabolize fat at the cellular level so it can be used as energy. A lack of L-Carnitine in the body can cause all fat ingested to be stored rather than metabolized, resulting in weight gain.

    No matter your digestive issue, there is an herb, plant compound or other alternative health product that may help. Work with your alternative medicine provider to determine which nutritional supplements to try.

    Look for the purest form of each, those without fillers or additives. Pay careful attention to dosage instructions, as these are powerful compounds with possible side effects when misused.

    Natural remedies have been used for centuries by natural health practitioners. Consider these alternative health products when looking for a way to build digestive health naturally.
