A cup of tea and its many benefits

Peole in different country have different hobby,such as drinking,many people in western countries like drinking coffee,but other people from eastern may like drinking tea.they use different types of cup,and mat in different material,for example,mat,may be there are silicone mat,woolen mat,plastic mat and so on.

While everyone is addicted to coffee, be it a cappuccino or espresso, not many are aware of the hazards of the consumption of excess caffeine, as compared to the good old cuppa tea.

So reduce your intake of coffee and drink tea more often. A few points on why tea is not just refreshing, but also beneficial to our physical and mental well-being!

Since tea contains antioxidants, it protects the body from premature aging and ill-effects of pollution.

It is known to reduce the risk of a heart attack and stroke. Studies show that drinking tea keeps your arteries smooth and clog-free.

It's not just the milk added to tea that builds strong bones. Tea itself protects your bones.

Tea contains fluoride and tannins that keep plaque at bay. So add unsweetened tea drinking to your daily dental routine of brushing and flossing for healthier teeth and gums!

Drinking tea helps in building a strong immunity. It helps the immune system to fight off infections.

Tea is one of the single best cancer fighters you can put in your body. Thank the polyphenols, the antioxidants found in tea, for their cancer-fighting effects.

If not consumed in excess, tea keeps you hydrated. It is one beverage that contributes to our fluid needs.

Unless you add milk or sweetener to it, tea is calorie-free and helps in losing weight. So if you want to have a satisfying, calorie-free beverage, it is the top choice.

Tea increases your metabolism. Lots of people complain about a slow metabolic rate and their inability to lose weight. By drinking just five cups of tea per day, you can increase your metabolism.

Automotive Roundup October From Australia

Janpan Auto Sales Post First Rise Since Quake:Japan's carmakers are finally recovering after the earthquake and tsunami that rocked the country in March of this year severely disrupted the automotive industry supply chain.

New car, truck and bus sales rose 1.7 per cent in September to 313,790 vehicles, according to the Japan Automobile Dealers Association.

It was the first year-on-year rise in sales in 13 months and comes after figures showed higher auto production and exports during August.

Auto sales in the September 2011 to March 2012 period will increase by 17.4 per cent compared to a year ago, according to the Japan Automobile Manufacturers Association.

In September, Toyota saw sales volumes rise 0.7 per cent, mainly off the back of a 59.9 per cent increase in deliveries of its luxury Lexus brand.

Honda posted a 1.6 per cent sales gain while Nissan actually saw sales dip by 7.7 per cent year afer year.

Gap between automobile exports and imports may continue to grow:China will continue to import more passenger vehicles than it exports, figures indicate.

Imports totalled 316,177 units in August, up 83 per cent on last year, according to data from the China Association of Automobile Manufacturers collected by chinanews.com.

At the same time, the level of exports rose just 37 per cent to 223,776 units.

Honda's Thai production underwater as floods hit Japan firms:Japan's big auto companies faced severe disruption to production in Thailand as the country is hit by some of the worst flooding in decades.

Toyota said it would be forced to close three plants, accounting for around eight per cent of global production.

Meanwhile, Honda could lose up to 60,000 units of production. Plants in Japan are already operating at full capacity to make up for the earthquake and tsunami in March, leaving little room to pick up the slack.

"Capacity utilisation in Japan is already high to meet post-earthquake recovery demand, so Honda's Japanese plants may not be able to supply sufficient volumes," Nomura analyst Masataka Kunugimoto said a report.

WRAPUP 4-Daimler, VW feel chill of Europe car slowdown:Daimler AG and Volkswagen have delivered a pessimistic outlook for Europe's carmakers as the eurozone debt crisis hits.
Sales of Daimler's Mercedes-Benz brand fell two per cent in Western Europe, denting the firm's third-quarter profits.

The firm said the region has "little sign of any significant growth impetus".

Volkswagen said: "The strained debt situation in certain eurozone countries and the end of subsidy programs will have a negative impact on demand for new vehicles in many western European countries."

Truck sales in Europe actually rose 4.5 per cent in September, according to industry group ACEA, though Volvo is preparing to cut output in anticipation of lower demand in Europe and Scania has issued a similar warning if sales fall.

Silicone Rubber Properties and applications

Silicone Rubber Properties:
1) It has high resistance to oxidation and weathering.
2) Resistant towards ozone and corona.
3) Low water absorption capacity.
4) Silicone rubber is odorless, inert and a stainless rubber.
5) It has extraordinary electrical qualities.
Silicone Rubber Properties:
Silicon rubber is extensively used in automobiles, to make apparels like undergarments, footwear, sportswear, medical devices and many more. One great thing about silicone rubber is that it can be extruded into strips, solid cords, tubes and many more according to the requirement. Therefore silicone rubber can be easily moulded to create custom designs and shapes. Always use the silicone rubber on non porous surface as using it on porous surface will cause the staining. Like if you will use silicone rubber product on marble then it will get stains.

Ice tray is good for ice cream lover

lovely strawberry ice tray
People like ice cream,especially for children,cetainly,it is popular for young women,they like it much,when Summer is coming,many people go shopping never forget to buy one ice cream or other cold drink,it's cool in hot day.

But here are many people they do it themselves,because,with the development of economy,almost every family has refrigerator.they can do it,like make ice cream and other cold drink.

However,we know that just have a refrigerator is impossible to do what we want to,in other word,we can't do a ice cream when I just have a refrigerator.So may people choose to sell ice tray,people can use it to make different types of ice cream,there have lovely strawberry ice tray,cute letter ice tray and so on.

If you are the one of ice cream lovers,why not to try it yourself?

The Wedding Cake Model Theory of Criminal Justice

The Wedding Cake Model Theory of Criminal Justice was developed by Samuel Walker, a scholar who analyzed the judicial system. The theory divides the proceedings in the criminal justice system into four different categories: celebrated cases, serious felonies, lesser felonies and misdemeanors. The theory allows for a closer analysis of these different types of cases based on the manner in which they are dealt with in the criminal justice system.

Celebrated Cases:The top layer of the Wedding Cake Model Theory of Criminal Justice includes the "celebrated cases." These types of cases garner a great deal of media attention because the crimes are unusual or because the defendants are celebrities or high-ranking officials. The manner in which these types of cases are undertaken is not typical of the operation of the criminal justice system. Because they are such high-profile cases, there are factors that need to be taken into consideration that do not exist in more typical criminal cases. These include everything from cameras in the courtroom to crowd control. By their very nature, examples of celebrated cases are obvious: OJ Simpson, Michael Jackson, Bernie Madoff and so forth.

Serious Felonies:The second layer of the Wedding Cake Model Theory of Criminal Justice includes "serious felonies." On this layer of the "cake," the criminal justice system engages in its standard operating procedure. There are not the same external factors impacting the system as there are in celebrated cases. Serious felonies are cases involving those types of crimes in which a defendant is not likely to be released on bail. There is a lesser chance that the defendant will enter into a plea agreement before trial.
Lesser Felonies:On the third layer of the Wedding Cake Model Theory of Criminal Justice are lesser felonies. These types of cases tend to be non-violent. Within this grouping of cases are certain drug-related charges, financial crimes and the like. A good portion of these cases end in plea agreements.
Misdemeanors:The final layer of the Wedding Cake Model Theory of Criminal Justice involves misdemeanor cases. These are the least-serious types of crimes in the criminal justice system (excluding traffic infractions). These types of cases include petty or minor theft and disturbing the peace. Misdemeanors represent the largest category of cases in the criminal justice system. Many misdemeanor cases are resolved with plea agreements.
Significance:The Wedding Cake Model Theory of Criminal Justice assists in better understanding the operation of the criminal justice system. How these cases fit into the overall justice system leads to a clearer understanding of the mechanics of the judiciary. Moreover, by making distinctions between different types of cases -- particularly between celebrated cases and other types of criminal proceedings -- an observer better understands the differences between the norm and the exceptions in the criminal justice system.

Sell Solar Energy Flashlight

Solar Energy Flashlight
This type of flashlight we can see it on the right,at first,it is easy to carry,and we can notice that a black squar pattern in the middle of flashlight,it looks more beautiful.

Second,we can see,there are four led lights in the head of it.behind it there have a switch.

Now we can take about it:
Solar flashlights are essential for any emergency kit, for both home and car. They can be used at a moment's notice and do not require anything but the power of the sun to recharge. Most of these flashlights use LED bulbs, which use far less power but provide an amazing degree of illumination. Because they are less draining on a battery, they are ideal for use with solar power.

Solar flashlights are perfect for camping and hiking. Because they are designed to be charged via the sun, there is no need to carry an extra supply of batteries. Most of these flashlights have solar panels integrated into the design of the flashlight itself, and so simply leaving them sitting in the sun during the day is usually enough to charge them for a full night's worth of use. They are also compact enough to easily fit into a backpack with the rest of your needed equipment.

Solar flashlights are commonly used as replacements for kerosene-burning lanterns. Aside from the fire dangers inherent in using an open flame for lighting purposes, kerosene also costs money. Using a more eco-friendly solar powered light can save a user a substantial amount of money over the long run. They are also much more convenient than a gas lantern because they are easier to pack.

How Do Solar Powered Flashlights Work?

Solar power lights are rather ingenious inventions that have many uses. Who would have thought you could use the sun to power a light, or a flashlight? Solar powered flashlights are pretty cool little gadgets. They generally look quite similar to a regular flashlight. They have a simple switch that turns them on and off. They have an area on one end that emits light...sufficient to allow to be used at night or in any dark area.

A solar powered flashlight uses sunlight energy, converted into electrical energy in a solar photovoltaic (PV) cell or panel that sits on the outside of the flashlight, that is then stored in a battery. Most solar powered flashlights use LED or Light Emitting Diode lamps rather than an incandescent light bulb, as LED's take less electrical current to operate, and they last longer. While an incandescent light lasts, on average, for about 1000 hours, an LED lasts for an average of 100,000 hours.

Similarly, solar charged batteries that are used in the solar powered flashlight, as compared to the normal, single use nickel, lithium, or cadmium batteries generally seen in flashlights, usually will not require replacement for about two years with steady use. The comparison rate is about 15 hours for a regular battery, compared to around 2500 hours for a solar rechargeable battery.

To maximize the usage of your solar charged batteries, you should leave the flashlight on for 15+ hours at least once a month to fully expend the charge. Rechargeable batteries have a memory effect. Therefore if you continually use the flashlight without ever fully discharging it, it will eventually only recharge to a lower (memory) level, and never return to 100 percent of its available power.

For best results, keep your solar powered flashlight on a window sill when it is not in use, where the solar panel is exposed to the maximum amount of sunlight. If you're not using it regularly, be particularly mindful to turn it on...and leave it on...as described above, at least once a month.

You can find solar powered flashlights in most hardware stores today. They're great for camping and emergency use. Every vehicle and every home should have one. If you wonder why...think about those times that you've needed a flashlight in a hurry only to find that the batteries were dead, and you had no spares...or didn't know where they were!

Some amazingly innovative designs are being created for solar flashlights...with add-ons like siren, flasher, cell phone charger, etc... in addition to the basic flashlight design. There are also any number of solar flashlight key chains are on the market today. The price range varies, depending on the uniqueness of the style, the outside casing, and additional functions.

If you're interested in "spreading the light" in a very solar way, you may want to visit bogolight.com. The name stands for "Buy One, Give One." SunNight Solar, the company that operates the BoGoLight Program is a Limited Liability Company founded by Mark Bent in 2006. Having served in the American Diplomatic Corps in a number of developing countries, Mark saw the need for light in many places, and found a way to provide it. When you purchase one solar flashlight at BoGoLight, or through one of its affiliates, such as InHabitat, an identical solar flashlight will be donated to a non-profit who collects and ships the lights to areas of need throughout the world.

What a unique and wonderful way to "shine a little" light...in a very solar way...and light the dark for those who cannot see. Solar powered lights are the wave of the future.

Romance of the plastic shell

Plastic shell:By the mid-1950s, the wound-paper shotgun case had reached the peak of its development. The folded crimp had replaced the roll-crimped shell with over-shot wad. Winchester-Western had introduced a highly efficient, bottle cap shaped, obturating over-powder wad and their Mark-V plastic shot wrapper that reduced shot deformation and improved patterns considerably. Yet, the problem was in the paper.

Whether the paper hull was waxed or lacquered, it still tended to absorb moisture. I can recall shells that could hardly be seated into the chamber of my gun and others, that upon firing, could hardly be extracted, particularly when shooting a pump or semi-auto. The wound-paper tube had to go, and the major manufacturers like Winchester-Western and Remington consequently spent millions of dollars developing plastic substitutes.

There were endless failures during early attempts to form cases using the injection-molded process. Working with the available plastics of the day, companies found that the resulting cases did not have the necessary tensile strength plus they became soft when heated and brittle when cooled. It took a German technique, the Reifenhauser process, to really bring plastic shotshells to the marketplace by the mid-1960s.

What the Reifenhauser process did was to work the plastic in such a way that its tensile and radial strength were increased during the manufacturing process. In the simplest terms, melted polyethylene resin was extruded through a die to produce a heavy walled tube that was then stretched to six times its normal length, resulting in the resin's tensile strength increasing from 4,500 psi to about 18,000 psi.

The thin walled tube was then expanded in diameter through the use of air pressure, thereby increasing its radial strength. In industry terms, the end product was known as bi-axial oriented tubing. Cut in shotshell length segments, the tube and a separate base wad were then crimped securely into a metal head, producing a straight walled plastic case that was very strong indeed.

Concentrating solar power

Concentrating Solar Power (CSP) systems use lenses or mirrors and tracking systems to focus a large area of sunlight into a small beam. The concentrated heat is then used as a heat source for a conventional power plant. A wide range of concentrating technologies exists; the most developed are the parabolic trough , the concentrating linear fresnel reflector, the Stirling dish and the solar power tower. Various techniques are used to track the Sun and focus light. In all of these systems a working fluid is heated by the concentrated sunlight, and is then used for power generation or energy storage.

A parabolic trough consists of a linear parabolic reflector that concentrates light onto a receiver positioned along the reflector's focal line. The receiver is a tube positioned right above the middle of the parabolic mirror and is filled with a working fluid. The reflector is made to follow the Sun during the daylight hours by tracking along a single axis. Parabolic trough systems provide the best land-use factor of any solar technology.The SEGS plants in California and Acciona's Nevada Solar One near Boulder City, Nevada are representatives of this technology.Compact Linear Fresnel Reflectors are CSP-plants which use many thin mirror strips instead of parabolic mirrors to concentrate sunlight onto two tubes with working fluid. This has the advantage that flat mirrors can be used which are much cheaper than parabolic mirrors, and that more reflectors can be placed in the same amount of space, allowing more of the available sunlight to be used. Concentrating linear fresnel reflectors can be used in either large or more compact plants.

The Stirling solar dish combines a parabolic concentrating dish with a Stirling engine which normally drives an electric generator. The advantages of Stirling solar over photovoltaic cells are higher efficiency of converting sunlight into electricity and longer lifetime. Parabolic dish systems give the highest efficiency among CSP technologies.The 50 kW Big Dish in Canberra, Australia is an example of this technology.

A solar power tower uses an array of tracking reflectors (heliostats) to concentrate light on a central receiver atop a tower. Power towers are more cost effective, offer higher efficiency and better energy storage capability among CSP technologies.The Solar Two in Barstow, California and the Planta Solar 10 in Sanlucar la Mayor, Spain are representatives of this technology.

New technology found to turn old tyres into new rubber products

 "Every year, a billion tyres are discarded worldwide following wear and tear, with the bulk going into landfills and placing a burden on the environment. But now, researchers have found a way to reuse them -- by creating rubber products.We have come up with a way of giving new life to old tyres that should eliminate the need for them to end up in a landfill,"" said study author Chris Skourtis from Deakin University Institute for Technology Research and Innovation.""Tyres simply dumped or placed in landfill are known to leach harmful chemicals into the environment; cause fires; and provide a perfect breeding ground for pests like mosquitoes and rats,"" said Chris Skourtis from Deakin University.our process does not rely on chemicals and uses less power -- making it more environmentally friendly,"" said Skourtis, according to a Deakin statement.

It also results in high quality ingredients that can replace virgin and synthetic rubbers in the manufacture of products such as new tyres, car parts, insulation materials, conveyor belts and asphalt additive for roads,"" said Skourtis.Deakin researchers, led by Qipeng Guo, developed a small-scale facility at the university's Waurn Ponds Campus to test and refine the recycling technology developed and patented by VR TEK Global.We now have a technology that is far better than any other tyre recycling processes,"" Skourtis explained.“First, the tyres are segmented in a way that allows for each part to be treated differently which eliminates impurities and results in a higher quality end product. For example, the steel reinforcement in the tyre is separated without fragmenting, which is not common in current tyre recycling.“We have then created an efficient means of devulcanising and activating the tyres into rubber powders for recycling into rubber products.“Devulcanisation essentially reverses the chemical process used to create the tyres. This is normally done using environmentally harmful chemicals.

We have developed a mechanical method that requires no chemicals.“We have also developed a way of using ozone gas to activate the rubber powder which makes it more compatible with other materials. This extends the usability of the powder for producing a wider range of rubber and plastic products than currently possible.”The statement added, “This breakthrough in tyre recycling technology is the result of four years of research and development between VR TEK Global and CSIRO and Deakin University. The project has been funded by the Federal Government (via the Advanced Manufacturing Cooperative Research Centre) and the Victorian State Government (through the Victorian Centre for Advanced Materials Manufacturing).“In 2012, VR TEK will take the technology into commercial operation.” - IANS with additional inputs from TWL Bureau"

How can you identify Silicone and how about them?

How can we identify it in our daily life?Finding out if silicone is in your products is typically fairly simple.  Most silicones end in the letters -cone or -cates.  The following is a partial list of some commonly found silicones in hair products:  Dimethicone (simethicone), Cyclomethicone, Trimethicone, Simethicone, cyclomethicone, cyclopentasiloxane, trimethylsilylamodimethic one, trimethylsiloxysilicates, amodimethicone, dimethiconol, beheonoxy dimethicone, phenyl trimethicone, dimethicone copolyol, lauryl methicone copolyol, hydrolyzed wheat protein, hydroxypropyl polysiloxane.

Silicone can either be “light” or “heavy”.  Light silicones tend to be VERY water soluble and therefore are easily washed away and do not cause a buildup.  However, these light silicones are very expensive, found in fewer products, and often evaporate as the hair dries, making them fairly ineffective.  Other silicones are “heavy”.  They are not nearly as water soluble and therefore they stay in place making your hair smooth and shiny.  However, because they are not easily washed away, they typically cause buildup on the hair shaft over time weighing down your hair and causing it to look/feel greasy.  This buildup can be washed away by using a stronger, clarifying-type shampoo.  However, these shampoos also strip the hair and scalp of natural moisture and therefore damage and weaken it - requiring the use of conditioner which uses - can you guess what? - SILICONE to cover and mask the damage.  This leads to a cycle of covering and stripping hair, which over time causes damage.

What is Silicone and which Products Use Silicone?

egg cup
What is Silicone and which Products Use Silicone?
People may know what is silicone,however they can't describe it in detailes,they only to know it wheny they but silicone products.Silicone is a synthetic (man-made) material.  Basic properties which make it useful in hair products include water repelling (though not a complete hyrdophobe), smoothing, and resistance to oxygen, ozone, and UV rays.  It is used in hair products to smooth the cuticle by coating the hair, thus masking damage, improving comb-ability, lessening frizz, and making hair feel silky.

It is said that silicone is contained in nearly every hair product on the market.  The list of products NOT containing silicone would be far shorter than a list of those which do.  Silicone is found in shampoos, conditioners, gels, smoothing products, de-tangling products, protective products, shine products and more.  If we were to name specific lines, the list would be endless.

America Solar-Power Developer SunEdison Moves To California From Maryland

It is said that SAN FRANCISCO (Dow Jones)--MEMC Electronic Materials Inc.'s (WFR) solar-power development unit SunEdison moved its headquarters to the San Francisco area from Maryland to be closer to the one of the world's fastest-growing solar markets, the company said Monday.

"We do think that California is the epicenter for solar," SunEdison President Carlos Domenech said in an interview.

California is on track to add about 6,000 megawatts of solar power over the next few years and SunEdison aims to snag a good-size piece of that, Domenech said.

SunEdison, which builds, owns and operates solar-power plants and rooftop generators using solar panels, does about half its business in the U.S. and Canada, and the rest in Europe and other regions, Domenech said. The group uses panels made by its parent company and also buys panels from other manufacturers for its projects.

SunEdison moved its headquarters from Beltsville, Md., to Belmont, Calif., a suburb of San Francisco. MEMC, which makes silicon wafers for the semiconductor and solar industries, is headquartered in St. Peters, Mo.

California Gov. Jerry Brown, who attended the opening of SunEdison's new headquarters, praised the company's move.

"California is open for business, we're the innovative state and we're going to invest in solar and make California not only the national leader, which it already is, we're going to make it the world leader, and we're going to do that with a company like this," Brown said.

In September, SunEdison bought San Francisco-based solar-farm developer Fotowatio Renewable Ventures Inc. for $112 million, plus repayment of $19 million of debt. That purchase added 1,400 megawatts of solar farms to SunEdison's project pipeline.

The pre-orders came as Mr. Jobs's funeral was due to be held on Friday, according to a person familiar with the situation. Apple has said there are no public services planned for the company's former CEO.

Two men line up in front of an Apple store in London on Friday to secure a spot, as the company and carriers began accepting pre-orders.

Reaction to the 4S is critical for Apple, because it is an indication of whether the company can continue to generate desire for its devices. Smartphones are Apple's single-largest product category by revenue.

Consumer demand for the iPhone 4S could be shaped by an outpouring of emotion surrounding this week's death of Mr. Jobs. "I wanted to show support and help to knock initial sales out of the ballpark," said David Michael, 46, who stayed up until 2:15 a.m. attempting to order a white iPhone 4S.

Mr. Michael, who was drawn to the phone because of its upgraded camera, said he began attempting to order the new device when pre-sales began shortly after midnight from his home in California, but experienced problems on the Apple and AT&T Inc.'s websites but ended up placing an order.

Analysts had a more muted reaction to the phone after Apple introduced it on Tuesday, with some predicting the company lost potential customers by not changing the external design of the phone or calling it an iPhone 5. The newest iPhone has a similar look to its predecessor, but sports a faster microprocessor and new voice-activated software.
