The Plastic Bag Industry

by

Bizymoms.com Management

Plastics are classified based on their polymer backbone. Just as there are many varieties of plastic, there are several different ways to process plastic. It depends on what the ultimate product needs to be. Most plastic bags consist of carbon, nitrogen, oxygen, sulfur, or chlorine.

Plastic bags are usually made up of the plastic type polyethylene. Basically it consists of units called ethylene, which are repeated in the plastic and joined together by strong bonds. Plastic bags came into the spotlight during World War II and have been popular ever since. This type was the first plastic in US to reach sales of more than billion pounds per annum. Shopping bags, garment bags, trash bags and packing material all use polyethylene. Youll notice that even these shopping bags can vary in texture. Plastic bags in groceries are flimsy while at malls you get more sturdy types. If the polymer making up the plastic is highly branches, it gives a flimsy finish.

Petroleum and natural gas are the key ingredients that are used by the plastic bag industry. This usage of non renewable energy sources has sparked debates among environmentalists who claim that its such a waste to direct valuable energy towards whats becoming an environmental hazard.

The plastic industry is now looking towards making degradable bags, like those use starch as a raw material. Another way to make plastic less durable is to add a UV light absorber so that it will break down when exposed to sunlight. These procedures are more environmentally friendly but more expensive at the same time.

Plastic bag industries have spoken out against any bans that may be implemented on the use of plastic bags. They say that the environmental concern is exaggerated and that there is no conclusive evidence that marine life is endangered by discarded plastic bags. They even assert that paper bags (an alternative for the plastic bag) do not degrade much faster than their plastic counterparts. Even some environmentalists will agree that banning plastic bags does not seem like a good idea in the long run because it will encourage use of paper bags (and in turn more cutting down of trees). Thats why plastic bag industries embrace the idea of recycling. Some companies have even started to make the thick variety of plastic bags that can be reused several times, thus reducing the amount of plastic used in general.

Most DJs basically do not feel employing a sub is necessary in their setup. That may be correct to an extent that it is of program quite possible to do a good gig with all-function speakers.Nonetheless, with out DJ subwoofers, you will not consider benefit of delicate and not-so-subtle influences on the audience that a subwoofer, specially effectively placed subwoofer presents.

Mass wedding held against racism in Belgium

By 5Mu3Ji

Thursday, March 22, 2007

When Wouter Van Bellingen became the first black registrar in Belgium, he knew there would be negative reactions, but he admitted that he didn’t expect them to be “so direct, so soon.” In February, three couples refused to pledge their wedding vows in front of the first black alderman of the city of Sint-Niklaas, because of the colour of his skin. After the racist incident, Van Bellingen told himself: “If people don’t want to marry, then that’s not my problem, it’s the problem of those people.”

But then someone gave him the idea to react with a positive signal against racial discrimination. Together with local NGOs and the Center for Equal Opportunities and against Racial Discrimination, he decided to organise a multicultural group marriage happening to, as mayor of Sint-Niklaas Freddy Willockx describes it, “forge this stupid racist behaviour into an unparallelled positive signal against racism and for tolerance.”

Indiana legislators vote for state constitutional ban on same-sex marriage

Indiana legislators vote for state constitutional ban on same-sex marriage

By 5Mu3Ji

Thursday, February 20, 2014

Indiana’s Senate passed a proposed constitutional amendment Monday that would ban same-sex marriage in the state’s constitution. Indiana’s state law already prohibits same-sex marriage. A sentence banning civil unions was removed from the proposal.

For a constitutional amendment to be approved in Indiana, it must pass both the House of Representatives and the Senate during two separately elected legislatures, which means there has to be an election between the two sets of votes. The proposed amendment cannot be changed from one voting session to another and cannot be changed from the House of Representatives to the Senate. Once the proposed amendment has passed those hurdles, then the amendment goes to Indiana voters who vote yea or nay on the amendment.

Following the House of Representatives’ approval, the Senate passed the proposed amendment, which is known as House Joint Resolution 3, with a vote of 32–17 Monday. Opponents needed eight more votes to stop the proposed amendment from reaching the necessary margin of support.

The proposed amendment already passed both houses in 2011. A change was made this legislative session when the second sentence was deleted first by the House of Representatives and then was passed in a similar form by the Senate Monday. The failure of the second sentence, which proposes to ban same-sex civil unions, could possibly open the door for civil unions in the future. Following the process, HJR-3 will be reviewed again by the next elected legislature in either 2015 or 2016 to remain in process.

Although the amended version grants the possibility for civil unions in the future, some in the LGBT (Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender) community say it isn’t enough.

“I think it’s still bad because it fails to legitimize us as human beings, since it’s trying to deny us basic rights,” said Myranda Wanden, program director at Indiana Youth Group, an organization that provides support and advocacy for LBGT teens and young adults.

Indiana Governor Mike Pence supported the proposed amendment. Pence, in his “State of the State” speech for 2014, said, “I believe in traditional marriage, and I have long held the view that the people, rather than unelected judges, should decide matters of such great consequence”. Pence also called for a civil debate for the matter and to treat everyone with respect.

“I think the rest of the country is moving towards being more open and accepting about gay marriage,” Wanden said. “I think Indiana, which is a conservative red state, saw this and wanted to resist the changing tide. I think it caused fear in many legislators, but I definitely don’t think it’s reflective of a majority of the Indiana population.”

Indiana is not the only state that prohibits same-sex marriage by law or as proposed by constitution. There are 29 other states that prohibit same-sex civil marriages under their constitutions, while Indiana and three other states prohibit it by statute. The states that allow for some form of same-sex marriage number 17 plus Washington, DC.

Worldwide, there is a wide diversity in same-sex marriage and rights laws. At this time, 17 countries allow same-sex marriage, the most recent being Scotland. Most of the countries that allow same-sex marriage are concentrated in Europe, but there are also countries in South America and Africa, as well as New Zealand, Canada, and parts of Mexico that have legalized same-sex marriage. Homosexual sex is legally criminal in at least 78 countries, and punishable by death in five.

Furry fans flock to Further Confusion 2007

Furry fans flock to Further Confusion 2007

By 5Mu3Ji

Tuesday, February 6, 2007

San Jose, California – Cell phones, cigarette lighters and glowsticks are raised in tribute as Circle of Life begins playing. Soon cheers drown out the song as the multicoloured performers appear on stage. A somewhat unusual introduction; but this is no ordinary show, and these are no ordinary attendees. This is Further Confusion, the second largest furry convention in the world.

The volunteer organizers have something to cheer about, too; Furry fans have gathered from far and wide at the DoubleTree Hotel to indulge their love of anthropomorphics, and Further Confusion’s 9th year is its largest, with a paid attendance of 2061. Their gains mirror those of Midwest FurFest, a similar convention held in Schaumburg, Illinois which grew 35% last November.

Both events feature art shows and auctions, live puppetry performance, masquerades, variety shows, games and parades, as well as panels that range from science and technology to society, sex and spirituality. Filling out the schedule, the hotel walls are lined with announcements of public and private room parties for separate groups. At night, the disco floor fills with dancing cats, dogs, and dragons.

For some, dressing up plays a large part of the convention – almost 300 brought a full costume. There are few professional mascots here, though, and only one or two of the costumes would be recognized by even the most avid cartoon-watcher. Instead, each act is planned and performed by other attendees, wearing “fursuits” of their own design. Many play off the year’s secret-agent theme — “Fur Your Eyes Only”.

Other fans seem content to restrict themselves to small accessories — perhaps some combination of paws, ears, or tail. Each fur bears a 3″x2″ badge detailing their personal character, or “fursona“. Often these characters are better-known than the people who play them.

It may seem lighthearted, even frivolous, but these conventions are becoming big business. Furry fans spent over $180,000 for lodging during the five days (Jan 18-22) of Further Confusion, and another $50,000 at the art auction. Attendees also purchase all manner of merchandise from attending dealers and artists, from on-the-spot art commissions and comic books of all ratings to prints, sculptures, and plush toys – even their very own fluffy tail.

Of course, any business has risk, and conventions can drain wallets when the sums just don’t add up. The first furry con, ConFurence in Southern California, ran successfully for over a decade, but cost its new organizer an estimated $60,000 in its last four years due to falling attendance before folding in 2003.

Anthropomorphic Arts and Education board member Peter Torkelson says that won’t happen to Further Confusion. Indeed, the convention ran a healthy surplus of almost $30,000 on $125,000 revenue last year, allowing it to pay off the last of its old debts and save for the future. As Torkelson explains: “The idea is if for some reason, say an earthquake happens, and it cripples the revenue stream, the convention will be able to survive into the next year. It does help our staff to know that we have [a reserve].”

The reserve also gives AAE the financial flexibility to fund charities throughout the year, a big part of its 501(c)(3) mandate. Over the nine years of the convention, attendees have raised over $60,000 for a variety of animal sanctuaries, wildlife refuges, and the Comic Book Legal Defense Fund.

Further Confusion’s hopes for the future are high. Chairwoman Laura Cherry noted that, unlike previous years, the board has “gone all out” for next year’s tenth anniversary, booking as many rooms as the hotel could offer. The host for 2009 has yet to be decided, but for many fans the question was not whether the current hotel will reach a limit, but when – and where – the convention will find a new home.

Essentials of Family Medicine Training

by

ATI Medical

According to Wikipedia, the term family medicine is used to connote a medical specialty program which is devoted to comprehensive health care to people of all ages or age group. Thus, it is a form of primary care to provide comprehensive and continuing health care solution to individuals and family indiscriminately i.e. without any discrimination based on age, sex, disease, etc. Family medicine training focuses on the patient in the context of the family and the community and disease prevention as well as health promotion in common.

Thus, according to the World Organization of Family Doctors (Wonca), the fundamental aim of family medicine is to provide comprehensive and continuing personal care for the individual in the context of the family or the community. Accordingly, the American Board of Family Medicine (ABFM) was founded 1969 to achieve the following:

It will work to improve the quality of medical care available to the public and establish as well as maintain standards of excellence in the specialty of Family Medicine. Thus, the organization will strive to improve the standards of medical education for training in Family Medicine. Along with alleviating the standard of family medicine education and training, it will also do evaluation of the fitness of specialists in Family Medicine.

Scope of Practice for Family Medicine Specialists:

Doctors specializing in family medicine in the United States may hold either an M.D. or a D.O. Degree. Thus, doctors specializing in family medicine or offering family medicine services in addition to the medical degree must successfully complete an accredited three-year family medicine residency program. After doing the three year residency program such doctors become eligible to write the exam for Family Medicine Specialist.

A successful completion of Family Medicine Course helps doctors get attractive jobs in hospitals and health plans. Candidates appearing for Family medicine training are taught topics such as continuing medical education, medical knowledge review, patient care oversight through chart audits, practice-based learning, etc. In addition to regular medical qualification, the American Board of Family Medicine requires its candidates to earn certification through an ongoing process in family medicine. The certification expires after a certain time and candidates are requested to reappear for the same.

The Family Medicine Core Curriculum includes subjects such as Cardiology, Gastroenterology, Obstetrics / Gynecology, Dermatology, Geriatrics, Orthopedics, Emergency Medicine, Hematology / Oncology, Pediatrics, Endocrinology, Nephrology, Pulmonary Medicine, Eye and Neurology, etc. amongst others.

ATI Medical Education is a leading provider of simulation software aimed to offer comprehensive and user-friendly study material to prepare for family medicine examination. The

Spanish police reportedly closing in on fugitive Nazi doctor

Spanish police reportedly closing in on fugitive Nazi doctor

By 5Mu3Ji

Sunday, October 16, 2005

Spanish police believe they are close to capturing Aribert Heim, the 91-year-old known as “Dr. Death”. Dr. Heim, described by The Times as “the most wanted Nazi still believed to be alive”, is thought to be living in the town of Palafrugell in the Costa Brava area of Spain.

Heim worked as a doctor in a number of Nazi Germany concentration camps (Mauthausen, Sachsenhausen and Buchenwald) carrying out a series of experiments on the camp’s Jewish inmates. His experiments reportedly included operating on a patient without anaesthetic to see how much pain a human being could endure, and injecting petrol into the bloodstream, then timing how long it took for the victim to die. Hundreds of people are believed to have died as a result of these experiments.

The Times reports that Heim led a normal civilian life after the end of the Second World War, but fled Germany in 1962, when the authorities were about to issue a warrant for his arrest. Nazi hunters, including researchers from the Simon Wiesenthal Center, have been looking for him ever since. The center’s founder, Simon Wiesenthal, was himself active in pursuing Heim prior to his death last month.

German police received a tip six weeks ago by an Israeli citizen who met a man in Ibiza with characteristics similar to Heim. The police acknowledged the information was helpful. Other evidence pointing the trail to Palafrugell involve banking transfers and tax filings.

Alleged war criminal Radovan Karadži? caught in Serbia

By 5Mu3Ji

Tuesday, July 22, 2008

Alleged war criminal Radovan Karadži? was caught yesterday in Serbia by Serbian security forces after almost 13 years on the run from authorities.

Last night he was questioned by an inquisitor of the War Crimes Court in Belgrade.

Karadži? has been accused by the International Criminal Tribunal for the former Yugoslavia of genocide, war crimes and crimes against humanity during the Bosnian War from 1992 to 1995. The Srebrenica massacre, in which about 8,000 Muslims were killed, is among the most serious of his alleged crimes. The massacre was categorised as genocide by both the International Court of Justice and the International Criminal Tribunal for the former Yugoslavia.

Internationally, the arrest was unanimously welcomed. Along with former military chief Ratko Mladi?, Karadži? has been one of the most sought-after war criminals of the Balkan conflict.

Described by the BBC’s Kate Adie as a “smart, rather vain man”, his capture found him with a long white beard working in a clinic and practicing alternative medicine under the name Dragan Dabic.

Large Shade Trees; Pine, Oak, And Maple For Shade Tree Planting And Growing

by

Pat Malcolm –

The largest living creatures that man encounters are shade trees that are handily defined as trees that produce shade protection from the sunlight. Mankind loves and respects shade trees with their cooling benefits and the many available wood products, that improve the recreational environment and offer food and shelter for wildlife, birds, insects, and other creatures. Trees are planted and grown for many purposes; for their sculptured beauty, beautiful seasonal color, and flowers. Flowering trees are usually not planted to grow as shade trees, but mainly for their beautiful flowers, and their growth is not fast enough to produce a tree large enough to shade a house very well. Many specific products of shade trees are fruit, berry, nut, wood pulp, sugar, turpentine, bark, mulch, timber, and sawdust. Fast growing shade trees in landscapes tend to suppress weeds by shading the ground with minimum light. Shade trees purify our atmosphere by absorbing automobile emissions of carbon dioxide and replacing oxygen as fresh air to breath.

Large shade trees protect the soil from erosion and cool the earth beneath the trees with shade. The height of some longer shade trees can grow to 100 ft in the landscape, and often the roots grow out from the base of the tree, at least as far out as the height. Some botanists report that the greatest enemy of the forests of shade trees is agriculture, because civilization has cut down the trees in order to plant row crops and to build homes. Many large virgin forests of Longleaf Pine trees have vanished, and are replaced for planting and growing agricultural crops. The great forests of large, black walnut trees are now gone and replaced with condominiums, and large grassy lawns growing there instead. Early American botanists and explorers wrote letters about walking all day underneath the cooling avenues of large Live Oaks and their graceful boughs that touched the earth. People are encouraged today to save the environment and to plant and grow large trees in their landscape. Eight to ten foot shade trees are best to provide fast growing trees for quick shade.

Shade Trees make an important and powerful statement in the landscape composition. Group plantings of shade trees can filter out automobile noise and noxious exhaust fumes. Single specimen tree plantings can make dramatic horizontal or vertical blockage for privacy.
