I have a friend who recently moved to a hot weather state and it’s interesting to know that it can seriously harm the one person’s health. She shared her experiences on how to be ready in extreme hot weather days. One should prepare a list of free, near places to go for cool air or air condition. This could be the public library, theater, store, mall and etc. Avoid using stove and ovens during hot days strikes as it can produce more heat indoors. Check your air conditioner if it’s working properly or if Continue reading
Last night, my boys are busy doing homework. My oldest son doesn’t do this more often. He is new to the subject of Geography. I introduce to him the simple basic concepts of what a World map, a Globe and a Compass rose looks like.

Hardware manufacturers have partnerships with research and development teams that specialize in materials science. Companies that primarily use metal for manufacturing must find high-quality materials that are also affordable. There is a never-ending effort to find the perfect balance between quality and price in the metal industry. Fortunately, innovations in materials science have led to the development of metal alloys that are relatively inexpensive to extract, process and mass produce.
Steel is perhaps the most sought after alloy. However, raw iron and carbon are somewhat expensive to purchase for hardware manufacturers. Additionally, there is a complex process that fuses iron… Continue reading

Times are tough. The job market is dismal at best, and better prospects do not seem to be anywhere in the near future. This means that most everyone is looking for a way to save money. Most have cut corners so closely that they are now rounded. What if there was one more option? Would you take it?
One option that many do not consider is the use of solar panels as a form of electricity. Do not be frightened at the idea of going green. Most people, who use or switch to solar panels for power do it purely… Continue reading
