Beehive Wrap Up Cocoon with Environmental Monitoring Some might say I am slightly obsessive about beehive insulation for the winter, but I am only guided by other beekeeper's experiences in my neighbourhood. Two years ago people were losing 2/3 of their bees due to the cold and they're still not insulating their hives. Now, I have come up with a third design that leaves them no excuses as it is incredibly cheap and quick to accomplish, easy to mass produce and re-usable year on year. This design will be especially relevant to bee keepers who experience harsh winters in Canada, Northern USA, Scandinavia, Russia, central Europe, Scotland etc. and have quite a few hives to manage. The design is based on the principle of wrapping with fibrous insulation but rather than wrapping directly on the hive, there is an intermediary frame which allows the whole structure to be removed with great ease and speed.

EUROKTIMATIKI REAL ESTATE AGENT RHODES GREECE Building a Parabolic Solar Hot-Water Heater using 123D My first step was to do a calculation to figure out if my idea was crazy. I started with my goal: Make the solar equivalent of the hot-water tap on a coffee machine. How much power do I need? Lets say I want to fill up my mug with hot water in about 15 seconds. How big of a mirror is that? In most places, on a clear sunny day, there's about .8 kilowatts of sunlight per square meter. That was a lot bigger than I could make, but it gave me an idea of scale.

DianeDi Listen to Richard Gage admit that he, an architect, has never studied the very important NYC seismographic data, and that thermite does not explain all of the evidence from 9/11 It's absolutely mind-blowing to think about how many well-intended people are still fooled by this man's unscientific claims... After I found out that Richard Gage was coming to Peoria, IL, I couldn't resist the opportunity to ask him why he continually ignores the overwhelming sum of easily verifiable physical evidence that thermite and explosives of any kind do not explain, why he has not filed his "smoking gun" thermite evidence in a court of law, and why he banned me, a donating member, from his AE911Truth organization just for sending Mr. Gage one well-intended email to ask if he knew about the large sum of important physical evidence that Dr. Judy Wood has discovered. I also asked Mr. If Mr. 1. 2. FREE E-book -- Finding The Sincerely, -Abe

Whole Hog Butchering: Breaking down a Mangalitsa-Red Waddle Heritage Pig Much of meat’s flavor comes from fat. People are starting to embrace fattier cuts, and cooking with pork lard is making a comeback. With the welcome of full flavored, lard-laden pork, the fat, furry Mangalitsa heritage breed of pig, native to the Austro-Hungarian Empire, is gaining in popularity. Known as the “kobe beef” of the pork world, their meat is marbled and fat stores plentiful. It’s said that their fat is less saturated that normal pig fat, and so tastes lighter and cleaner. Jointing a pig is different from traditional butchering.
