Flooring for your Home


Richmond Nicks

Integral pad carpet is a kind of carpeting that has its own cushioned backing attached and attached to the backside of the carpeting, thereby eliminating the need for installing separate carpet padding.As compared to hardwood flooring is most of the bamboo is produced in Asian countries and hence it has to be imported, which increases the cost of bamboo as well as processed bamboo flooring.

As the name implies, Brazilian Cherry originates in South America. Variations in color range from a lighter tan to a dark reddish-brown and incorporates whites and pinks into the grain.There are different types of flooring out of which the woven bamboo flooring is sturdy and durable, and therefore it provides you with money’s worth.

There are endangered species of zebra, so one should be wary of where their hide comes from. African species of zebra, the Burchelli, are not endangered, and may be purchased as long as the seller has the licenses for doing so.Just like putting in any other style of carpet, you have to make certain that the floor is completely clean and dried, is structurally complete, and has a relatively smooth or straight surface.

The top layer is made of aluminum oxide, which is a very strong layer that keeps the floor safe and secure from accidental spills or tears and cracks. Formica can be installed in any room, while hardwood not so much.To make laminate flooring installation easier, Armstrong, which is one of the top flooring companies in North America, has created an innovative “swiftlock” technology.

One of the realistic looking laminate floors out in the market are made by Westhollow.Nowadays, Wilsonart International is one of the largest laminate manufacturers in the US. The company now makes a wide array of laminate materials.

The number one cause of scratching is by small hard particles, in other words, such items as small rocks, bits of glass, pebbles, grit, hard dirt, tiny pieces of hard plastic and gravel.Parquet should be laid by starting in the centre of the room, working outwards towards the walls. Like all other wooden flooring an expansion gap must be left around the edges.

Asthma is one of the most common respiratory conditions. Every day, more than 30,000 people in the US suffer from asthma attack.In its early days laminate flooring has been attacked by critics as being manufactured in an un-environmentally friendly way. But that was ages ago.

Industrial Blowers and Fans


Oleg Tchetchel

Manufacturing industries utilizes fans for power boilers, recovery boilers, lime kilns, dissolving tanks, and dryers. These applications, which are integral to the production process, are often very corrosive. Reliability and durability of fans and blowers for such applications are vital for continuous operation. NISCO fans for demanding and corrosive applications ofer real value – saving on future downtime and maintenance costs.


Boiler fans create efficient combustion by supplying a consistent and reliable ait flow. Induce Draft Fans (I.D. Fans) operate at elevated temperatures and draw the air stream through the combustion chamber, then push it through pollution control equipment. Forced Draft (F.D. Fans) or Combustion Air Fans push the air stream into the boiler combustion chamber. Multi-Fuel Burning Power Boilers are used to create steam for different power needs. Induced Draft Fans are typically AMCA arrangement 3, single or double inlet with inlet box(es). Wheels often require abrasion resistant construction with radial tip or backwardly curved blades. Combustion Air FD Fans are typicallyconstructed of carbon steel, and utilize airfoil or backward inlined blade design. Common AMCA arrangements for combustion air fans are arrangement 3 and 8, both with inlet vane or outlet damper control.

Exhaust Fans are typically used on the suction side of a scrubber or fabric filter, and pull the air / gas stream through the piping and cleaning device. Dissolving tanks are used in conjunction with Recovery Boilers to recapture process chemicals. Exhaust Fans draw hydrogen sulfide or sulfuric acid fumes through a wet scrubber. This corrosive atmosphere can require either FRP, stainless steel or alloy construction. Exhaust fans can be in either belt or direct drive arrangements. Lime Kilns may be used to recover lime used in paper manufacturing. The fans used in this process often require high pressure and handle corrosive gas streams. Straight radial or radial tipped blade designs, 304L or 316L stainless steel construction and special shaft seals are often employed.


Many dryers are used in the paper manufacturing process. These drying applications utilize fans extensively. Most of these applications are not extremely demanding on the fan equipment – except the Yankee Dryers that are used for the manufacturing of tissue, and require a rugged fan design to handle high temperature (up to 800 F) and pressure requirements. Arrangement 8 direct driven fans allow for access and maintenance of fan components. Accessories often include labyrinth or lip type shaft seals, insulated housings or thermal blankets, raised access doors, shaft cooling wheel and safety guards.

CB Blower Co. offers various designs of industrial fans and blowers for Pulp and Paper Industry.

Tough applications mean tough fans and blowers by CB Blower Co.

Massive explosion in North Toronto, Ontario

Massive explosion in North Toronto, Ontario
Posted on Saturday, September 9, 2017 in Uncategorized

Sunday, August 10, 2008

Multiple large explosions have been reported at Sunrise Propane Industrial Gases, a propane facility in northern Toronto near Keele Street and Wilson Street near the Highway 401, at approximately between 3:25 and 3:50 am EST, at Murray Rd. and Spalding Rd. A six-alarm fire continued to erupt from the explosion, now under control. The cause is currently unknown.

A person who was 10km from the explosion told Wikinews that “my house shook 10 km away. The sky was rumbling every few seconds.”

Windows were blown out, doors were broken, and balls of fire descended from the sky near the explosion.

A witness who was in Niagara-on-the-Lake at the time witnessed the entire skyline of Toronto lighting up; someone else in Aurora at the time saw and felt the explosion.

A user on YouTube named “wolfshades” said that “we don’t know whether the explosion was chemical or by virtue of its proximity to the Toronto Airport if a plane had crashed.” Some witnesses thought the explosion was thunder or a nuclear bomb; the explosion was seen at Ossington Avenue and heard in Bloor and Jarvis in Toronto.

At least eighteen injuries have been reported, with one person still unaccounted for. All of the injuries reported so far have been minor, although one man had a layer of skin burned off his back. A Toronto firefighter died near the scene from a non-traumatic cause, believed to be a heart attack while fighting a fire near Murray and Regent; efforts were made to revive him, but were unsuccessful.

Large numbers of police are on the scene to keep people away from the explosion.

There is concern that two large railcar-mounted propane tanks, each capable of carrying 220,000 litres, could explode with enough force to affect a 1.6km radius. The air was found not to be toxic at the site. Firefighters are working to cool the tanks down and keep flames away, reducing the risk of explosion. More than 12,000 people have been evacuated. Most evacuees were transported to Yorkdale Mall and York University.

At the time of writing, evacuated residents have not yet been allowed to return to their homes. The 401, a major highway has been closed near the area; Eastbound 401 has been shut down between 400 and Allen Road, westbound shut down from 404/DVP to Highway 400. Three TTC subway stations: Yorkdale, Wilson, and Downsview were closed, but later re-opened. It was reported that Yorkdale Mall had been evacuated, but the Toronto Mayor David Miller confirmed through a teleconference from Vancouver that the report was false.

Flash floods kill over a hundred in India, 500 missing

Flash floods kill over a hundred in India, 500 missing
Posted on Saturday, September 9, 2017 in Uncategorized

Sunday, August 8, 2010

Five hundred people are missing and as many as 150 are reported to have been killed by flash floods in India, caused by a sudden cloudburst that hit Indian-controlled Kashmir on Friday. The downpour struck the town of Leh and several surrounding villages, and reportedly caused a mud slide that hit the refugee-populated village of Choglamsar.

Associated Press reported that at least five foreign tourists were among those killed. Their nationalities are not known but New Delhi Television (NDTV) reported that 110 tourists, half of them foreigners, were being looked after at an Army transit camp on the Leh-Manali road. NDTV also said that the tourists had been given food, medicine and phone connections to their embassies. Flights have been arranged by the Indian government to bring affected foreign tourists back home.

Massive relief efforts are continuing; Farooq Ahmad, who is Inspector General of Police in Kashmir reported on Sunday today that “63 bodies had been identified so far and that rescue teams were fanning out to six villages near Leh that had not yet been reached during relief operations.” Believed to contain 5000 people, Choglamsar, on Leh’s outskirts, is one of the villages that rescuers have been clearing roads to reach.

The army has been called in to assist in rescue work. Thousands of troops, police and paramilitary soldiers were clearing roads in order to reach isolated villages. Those living in the upper reaches, whose housing was not adequate to provide protection, will have borne the full impact of the mud slides caused by the 12 mm of rain that fell on Friday in just a few minutes.

Officials said that rescuers were digging through crushed homes and piles of mud to search for survivors. The hundreds of reported injured are being treated at an army hospital and several makeshift clinics. Mohammed Deen Khan, a social activist who has been assisting in rescue work, said the mud was 15 feet high in some places. Heavy earth-moving equipment has been brought in to move the tonnes of mud and boulders blocking roads.

The rescue officials have faced a serious problem due to the severe damage of the Bharat Sanchar Nigam Limited (BSNL) office, a telecommunication enterprise, leading to the complete disruption of communication in the Leh region. The general manager of BSNL reports that the damage has caused a loss of 120 million INR. Another telecommunication enterprise, Airtel, has provided SIM cards to local administration for setting up hotlines that people can call for assistance.

The major problem is due to the communication breakdown. If communication is restored it will help in co-ordination of rescue operations in a better way.

Pashi Tsetan, a local administration development wing (deputy director) said, “The major problem is due to the communication breakdown. If communication is restored it will help in co-ordination of rescue operations in a better way.” Other institutions like Defence Institute of High Altitude Research (DIHAR), the ITBP camp, the Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF) and others have also been affected.

1,314 people, mostly tourists, have been airlifted from Leh to Delhi. Three additional Indian Airlines flights from Jammu and Delhi have been planned. Three IL-76 and four AN-32 aircraft carried relief material to Leh this morning, and four more by Jet Airways and Air India and three by Kingfisher Airlines will carry relief material and doctors to Leh.

The ITBP has sent water tankers containing drinking water to affected areas. Medical camps have been set up in villages like Saboo. The bodies of eleven persons were transported to Jammu and Kashmir, Punjab, and Rajasthan this morning.

India’s crisis comes as Pakistan is experiencing the worst floods in the country’s history.

Football CL: All first leg games of second qualifications round are over

Football CL: All first leg games of second qualifications round are over
Posted on Saturday, September 9, 2017 in Uncategorized

Wednesday, July 27, 2005

First leg of the second qualifications round of UEFA Champions League is now over. Second leg games will be played on August 2 and August 3.


  • 1 Selected match reports
  • 2 Partizan boycotted by fans
  • 3 All results
  • 4 Sources

The biggest surprise of the leg is probably Artmedia Bratislava’s (also known as Artmedia Petrzalka) easy victory over Glasgow Celtic of 5 – 0. According to IFFHS’ ratings, Celtic is 43rd on the list, while Slovakians are on position 200. [1]

RSC Anderlacht secured an almost certain victory in the second round, as they won 5 – 0 at home against PFC Neftchi.

Another clear favorite is Liverpool, which beat Kaunas in an away game yesterday with a final result of 1 – 3. Kaunas will have to score at least three goals at Anfield next week to stay in game.

Anorthosis made the same result against Trabzonspor, but at home, which can still give Turks realistic hope to make it up next week.

Dudelange lost at home to Rapid Vienna with 1 – 6. Strikers were on a goaling spree in the first ten minutes of the game, leaving Rapid with a steady advantage of 1 – 3. Akagündüz scored his second goal of the game in 16′ for Rapid. Two more goals in the second half secured an easy home game for the Austrians.

Partizan Belgrade managed to beat Moldavian Sheriff at home, with 1 – 0, but the organized fans among 15,000 present at the stadium did not cheer for their team. Fans were protesting against the club management, as they banned any banners from the stadium. Most fans only chanted “Management out!” every few minutes.

Partizan’s stadium has a capacity of 32,710 seats, but last season games avaraged only about 2000 spectators in domestic matches. There is a long standing conflict between Partizan’s fans and the managament, as fans accuse the club leadership of manipulation of club’s funds and favoring certain fan groups.

North American roads suffer from dramatic thaws and freezes

North American roads suffer from dramatic thaws and freezes
Posted on Tuesday, August 29, 2017 in Uncategorized

Monday, January 8, 2007

Major city roads across North America are suffering from an early surge in potholes due to the dramatic freezes and thaws this month, some several feet across and inches deep. The potholes are caused by water seeping into cracks during warm weather, and pushing concrete apart when it freezes. Traffic erodes chunks of concrete from the cracks to form holes that continuously grow larger.

While car repair shops are experiencing a boom in business, city budgets are being hit with the costs of patching potholes. Thierry Larivée, an infrastructure spokesman in Montréal, Canada, says about 20 pothole patrols are working throughout the city. They are expected to continue work until at least Friday.

Craig Bryson, spokesman for the Road Commission for Oakland County in Michigan, United States, reports problems on unpaved roads as well. “The warmer weather is also playing havoc with gravel roads; the top layer of dirt thaws, but remains frozen about 10 inches below the surface. Surface water has no place to go. This creates a rutted, soupy road, especially in low-lying areas.”

Environment Canada meteorologist René Héroux attributes the unseasonable thaw to warm winds from the southwest. Environment Canada predicts a new cold front on Thursday.

Vancouver storm pollutes water; 2 million waterless

Vancouver storm pollutes water; 2 million waterless
Posted on Tuesday, August 29, 2017 in Uncategorized

Friday, November 17, 2006

Severe rainfall on the 16th of November has led to a water quality warning affecting more than two million people living in the Greater Vancouver metropolitan region. Wednesday’s storm triggered severe landslides in the region’s three water reservoirs, creating sediment levels up to ninety times higher than permitted under federal health standards. The Vancouver Coastal Health Authority issued a warning to residents advising them to boil all water intended for personal consumption. The advisory is mandatory for hospitals, daycares, and other public facilities, and is in effect until further notice.

The region’s Chief Medical Health Officer has advised that tap water not be used for anything. “We know that with turbidity levels this high there is an increased risk of gastrointestinal illness. So people need to be aware of that, although it’s their choice,” warned Dr. Patricia Daly. “If I’m asked, I’m telling the public: Don’t drink the water from the tap at this time. Drink bottled water or boil your water for a full minute.”

Commercial operations were affected as well. Food stores were ordered to turn off produce sprayers used to cool vegetables, and restaurants had to stop serving many food products. Many of Vancouver’s hundreds of coffee shops were quiet.

The Greater Vancouver area has received a total of 236.8mm of rain this month. The rainfall record of 350.8mm was set in 1983, according to measurements taken at Vancouver International Airport. BC Hydro, the province’s primary electrical provider, was busy repairing power and telephone lines blown down in the heavy winds. Over 220,000 customers were left without electricity in the aftermath of the storm, with more rain expected on Sunday.

SEPTA buys rail cars from NJ Transit to deal with crowding

SEPTA buys rail cars from NJ Transit to deal with crowding
Posted on Tuesday, August 29, 2017 in Uncategorized

Tuesday, July 29, 2008

As gas prices have risen in the United States, the regional transport authority for southeastern Pennsylvania, SEPTA, has seen a sharp increase in ridership, which has caused overcrowding on the trains.

“As fuel prices have continued to rise, SEPTA ridership has steadily increased and is the highest in 18 years,” said SEPTA General Manager Joseph Casey. Monthly ridership was 22 percent higher last month than a year ago.

“They have crushed loads on their rail lines, already where people are standing, and there’s not enough seats,” said Rich Bickel, the director of the Delaware Valley Regional Planning Commission.

“At peak times some railcars are standing room only and commuter parking lots are nearly full. All Regional Rail lines are running near full capacity and the train station parking lots are at about 90 percent capacity or more,” SEPTA spokesperson Felipe Suarez said.

While SEPTA awaits new Silverliner V trains from Hyundai Rotem, which begin arriving in 2009, it had hoped to lease eight rail cars from New Jersey Transit, at an agreed-upon rate of US$10,000 per month. However, due to problems with insurance and liability indemnification, the deal fell through, according to Casey.

SEPTA has entered a new agreement to purchase the eight rail cars from NJ Transit. The transit authority will pay US$670,000 for the cars and assorted supplies plus one additional inoperative car which will be used for spare parts. The rail cars will be operated using a SEPTA provided locomotive as they are not self-propelled.

The cars are being disposed of by NJ Transit because it has switched from single-floor cars to double-decker cars.

SEPTA is expecting to raise US$3.1 million by selling rail that has been out of service since 1981 at auction.

Mizuno Irons – The Players Choice


Bruce J Dillon

But it is surely significant that when players are not bound by contract to play a particular brand, their weapon of choice is the Mizuno iron. Tiger Woods used Mizuno irons all through college and before he turned professional.

Mizuno Irons have long been the choice of many top players… before they sign multi million dollar endorsement deals with various other manufacturers.

But it is surely significant that when players are not bound by contract to play a particular brand, their weapon of choice is the mizuno iron. Tiger Woods used Mizuno irons all through college and before he turned professional. Nick Faldo used Mizuno irons to shoot a remarkable round of golf to score 18 straight pars to win the British Open.

YouTube Preview Image

The vast majority of Mizuno irons are forged.What does this mean? Most golf irons are cast. This means that the clubs are made from a stainless steel alloy and made by pouring melted steel into a mould.

A forged club is made from one piece of metal by hammering and shaping heated metal into shape. Mizuno generally use mild carbon steel. This process gives a club greater consistency and performance.But it is more expensive than the more common casting method which can lead to more inconsistent performance.

Why? Because when the metal is poured into the mould, it always traps tiny bubbles inside the metal structure which can make the face inconsistent and in extreme cases leads to cracking and breaking.

Another consequence of air being trapped in the head is the different sound that a cast club will make versus a forged club. The air that is trapped in a cast club can absorb the sound of the ball leaving the club which means that the better golfer does not get the same feedback from the strike as with a forged club.

Indeed many say that the sound of the cast club is a dull, dead sound.Which is not what the ambitious golfer wants when he is trying to hone his game.

If you really love the sound of a well struck iron shot and the feel which a forged iron from Mizuno can give you then you owe it to yourself to check out the Mizuno irons.

If you are interested in being the best player that you can be then you owe it to yourself to feel the beautiful sensation of a well struck iron shot with a forged Mizuno iron.
