Physical Computing There are a number of mechanisms common to mechanical systems of all sorts that are useful to know about when you want to control motion of any sort. While this page is by no means comprehensive, it will help get you started on understanding a few basics of how to move things. Before we go much further, there is one important thing you need to know. All of these machines are used to do work of some kind. The Lever The lever is about the simplest of machines, one we're used to deling with every day, from can openers to car jacks and millions of other everyday devices. The ratio of the long arm to the short arm tells us the mechanical advantage of the lever, which is the ratio of work put into the system to work done. The Pulley Pulleys are series of moving wheels and ropes, chains or wires used to gain mechanical advantage. The more pulleys we add, the greater the mechanical advantage we get. These notes are heavily indebted to a number of sources: Flying Pig's mechanics section
Further Secrets of The Great Pyramid and The Changing Earth Peoples in History « Blog Archive « Head Bread by Nunitak The Giza Plateau of Khufu’s time was much more, but not completely, like Ancient Mexico’s Tenochtitlan.

How to Build a Solar Heating Panel with Soda Cans If you’ve got good sun exposure on one side of your house, you can take advantage of free heat from the sun with this DIY solar heating panel, which uses old soda cans to collect and transfer the sun’s energy into your house. Sometimes, low-tech solar devices are much better than high-tech ones for home use, as they not only tend to be cheaper to make, but will also last much longer before any repairs or maintenance are necessary. And even better, they can be built in part from repurposed or recycled components, which is something you don’t see very often in new solar devices. This solar space heater design uses old soda cans to increase the surface area for heat transfer inside of it, and in its most basic design, uses no external power to move the air. Double-glazed glass or polycarbonate panels make up the front of the device, allowing the sun’s rays to enter it while restricting heat loss to the outside air, and the box is also insulated for more efficiency.

Simply removing them is NOT a safe method. This is undoubtedly the most expensive part of detoxing from mercury—removing the source that is in your mouth. To check for the presence of heavy metals, many people still go by hair analysis. Chemistry professor Dr. Dr. Dr. The following is from Dr. Dr. www.autism.com www.toxicmetals.info
Emotional Clearing OM Page How to Use Potassium Permanganate in Water Treatment Potassium permanganate is an oxidant, but a poor disinfectant. It's often used in well water to control odor and taste, remove manganese, iron and color from the water, and to control biological growth that is considered a "nuisance," such as the Asiatic clam, according to the Environmental Protection Agency. The substance is most often used as a pre-treatment before water is filtered, and is better at removing sulfide odors from water than chlorine. Determine the water's temperature, pH, and manganese and iron levels with a water sample test. Purchase pre-made tablets of potassium permanganate if you do not want to do your own calculations. Filter drinking water to remove the manganese dioxide as well as the elemental sulfur precipitate that resulted from the treatment with the potassium permanganate. Store your potassium permanganate in a cool, dry area, advises the Carus Corporation.
