CNE- THE EX 2017 Crazy Food!

The CNE provides heart stopping, edible creations that are not for the faint of heart.  Some of these coronary inducing indulgences are extreme interpretations on classic carnival fare, comfort foods, burgers and more.
FOOD BUILDING – CNE Tradition
As a foody, I had to find out what they are featuring at the Ex this year. Everyone goes to the Food Building. It’s a tradition. You can not  miss it. It is located right neat the Go Train for all you suburbanites! I am not going to show you pictures of the CNE Food building. you can smell it and it is huge. Inside there is an eating area of picnic tables. You can walk around and see your favorite vendors.  H.Salt Fish and Chips are really good. They have not changed their winning recipe. A good nosh.  Burgers are always a hit. This year you will feast your eyes on “RED” burger buns. Reminds me of red velvet cup cakes. Franks Hot sauce adds that firey red glow to the buns. I am guessing red food colouring does the rest. Clever idea. I will get one and let you know how much fire is really in those burgers.   

GAME OF THRONES
To celebrate the dark days of the Middle Ages, we give you the black funnel cake topped up with charcoal ice cream? I hope they are not using real charcoal.
BURNT PIZZA! If that isn’t enough, how about black, carbon-crust pizza by the slice. Only from Pizza Nova. And, only at the EX!

CRICKETS ANYONE? If that doesn’t scare you crunchy crickets might be just what you need for dessert. I am guessing they are real crickets.  People say they don’t taste like crickets. What does that mean? It goes to show you that you cover anything with chocolate and it tastes good! My son said he ate a roasted cricket once and it tasted quite good. Crispy and crunchy. Yum!
Exciting fun food at the Canadian National Exhibition CNE —-This years fun food looks more like steam punk trending for Goth followers, or are we a bit early for Halloween?  My money is on Franks red-hot burgers. Nah! H.Salt Fish and Chips. Back to my comfort food! My biggest food adventure I have had are a deep- fried pickles.

Cyber Wire Flowers

Scrap Metal Recycling is available in more than cars, stoves and old BBQ’s. You can get metal wire scraps and make a lot of small and large designs for your home or office. for the DIY ( Do it yourself ) project I have supplied you with various tools you may want or use a pencil (for coils) or the end of a table for sharp corners. Be inventive. This video show you the process. Hope you will make a bike for your friend that rides a lot or maybe a skier? If your brother has two kids, you can make some fun stick figures of a family. Get a pattern online. There are so many selections.

Wire Sculpture, Steel, Brass, Silver and Paint Lacquer

Wire sculptures have so many possibilities. You can draw your design or get one you like from existing works of art and make one for yourself. They are really cute and….you made it! You were wondering how large these wire sculptures can get. Theo Kaccoufa has been commissioned for large pieces. a real talent. Check out his website theoland.com to see his work.

“Theo Kaccoufa’s work explores visions of the future and questions the possible outcomes of genetic manipulation. Appearing like ghosts of the natural world, his three-dimensional wire drawings of flowers are born out of the desire for constant improvement, the search for that which is bigger, better and longer lasting”. courtesy of theoland.com



Keeping it simple has its own rewards. Dont forget the stick golf player. My sister plays golf. I can make a wire stick figure for her with her hair style so she really knows it is her. First I would go on the internet and see some samples. Then, I would draw out a pattern or idea I night follow. More like a guide.

Challenges For Scrap Car Recycling

Only  30% of Metals Are Being Recycled

First Mobile Phone – 1973

The current overall metal recycling rate is around 30 percent.  How do we recapture more material for recycling?  The expansion of community recycling programs and public awareness help a lot. But what is the problem?  Sometimes the recycling facilities are not there to capture all recycling materials. A lot of third world countries do not have a sophisticated recycling program. Garbage is still thrown on the highways or plastics are still being mixed in with household trash. People will not take garbage seriously until it becomes a problem. People are still working on ways to make recycling better.

Another important reason for the low recycling rate has to do with the design of various metal products. The growing complexity of various modern products and their material mix makes recycling increasingly difficult. For instance, a simple mobile phone can contain as many as 40 different elements. So, extracting every kind of materials from a mobile phone and reusing them in the production of new products makes it difficult.

 

Metal Recycling Technologies

Modern recycling technologies can identify many different kinds of metals.  Never-the-less, there is still a need for even more effective recycling technologies to separate non-ferrous metals.

Magnets are used to separate ferrous metals from non-ferrous metals. It is one of the most important steps in the sorting process. As ferrous metals contain iron and they are attracted to the large magnets which easily pull out the iron materials from the mixed waste stream. In scrap yards, cranes fitted with an electromagnet can remove larger pieces of ferrous scrap.

When sorting metals from a mixed stream of recyclable material, paper is removed first leaving only plastics and metals. Then, electric currents are induced across the stream where only metals get affected. This process is called Eddy Current Separation. Although aluminum (cans) is not magnetic, this technology can levitate it and allow plastics to drop out of the process.

An Eddy current magnetic actually repel the non-ferrous metals, such as aluminium caps and rings from PET bottles

Recovering precious metals such as palladium, platinum, gold and other valuable metals such as copper, lead, and silver from electronic waste becomes economically viable only if enough scrap is collected. Such separation takes more technologically advanced and sophisticated recycling equipment. These days, in large recycling facilities, the use of sensors to identify metals through infra-red scanning and x-ray has become popular. Three common categories of metal sensing processes include biotechnology, hydrometallurgy, and pyrometallurgy. The use of these technologies can effectively improve metal recovery rates.

Trends in Scrap Metal Prices

REDUCE RE-USE RECYCLE! Help the environment by scrapping your metal

Trends in manufacturing follow the old golden rule of supply and demand. Using secondary raw materials means we do not need as much natural resources any longer. Why? It’s because we are overrun with old scrap metal. Lots of cars are getting demolished and shredded. We put them back together like Humpty Dumpty in our processing plant when we make new steel slabs or coils.   New cars are always in demand and are made up of 25%-30% recycled steel.  Scrap metal is made into new metal compounds. We still use raw iron ore in steel making; nickel in stainless steel; or alumina and bauxite in aluminium smelting.

ENERGY SAVINGS: Recycling steel scrap metal cars  has considerable savings in energy. Also, it reduces CO2 emissions. Bringing  old scrap metal into scrap yards helps to save the planet. Prices are better too.

SCRAP METAL PRICES:
Scrap prices change daily. Market forces decide on what the price is for scrap sheets, coils and bars for the next week.  Regionally, you will see varying prices. Local prices may fall behind or ahead. How much scrap metal you have stored at your yard?  If the price is good, you flood the market with your scrap metal stores. Sometimes you can’t afford to sit on scrap metal during low periods. You still need to pay the rent.  To remain on top of live scrap prices you have to follow reliable metal price sites. Subscribe to these websites. Prices change by 10 cents or 10 dollars.

LARGEST SCRAP YARD In England
At the Newport Docks in South Wales you will find Sims Metal UK Ltd., home of the largest scrap car processing in the world.  They now have about 200 companies world-wide.

Tow Truck Minions Vs Disney Lightning Mcqueen Monster Truck

FUN FOR KIDS!
This video is great for kids to learn about wonders of how tow trucks work. Especially when driven by MINIONS! So funny!

There’s a lot we can show our kids by visual demonstration and fun ways of learning. If they think its fun, they will learn more and learn better. It have been proven in some countries where the kids only go to school half of the week and “EXPLORE” the world the other half of the week. That country is rated as having a higher level of education; above most other countries. I wont name names. But, the concept works. It makes sense?
How about this one kids!!!

LEARNING IS FUN!
CLASS TRIP: Visit a Scrap Yard! Seeing videos and making fun art from scrap metals allows young minds to understand how things are made. Demonstrating what happens to old cars is interesting and will make people more considerate and conscientious about cars and what we do with them.

WELCOME TO THE SCRAP YARD
This is a place to learn about cars in an easy to understand way, without being too technical. It is also a place to enjoy different aspects of cars like engines. courtesy of DRIVETRIBE.COM

Ontario Car Insurance: Why Did No One Tell Me?

HOW IT WORKS

Photo by Gary Larson on Pinterest

There are new policies for drivers that have not had a ticket since 2014.
I stumbled across this great article about how to shop for an insurance company. Valuable tips and things you need to know about car insurance—>  discountdrivers.com
Click on the link above to get all the details. This article  provides links to many insurance companies in Ontario that you should consider. Make a check list before you buy a new car based on the TIPS provided to you here.  It may make all the difference in the world. Saving can mount up when you become the educated consumer.  I have had outlandish quotes for insurance companies when I have gone shopping for my car insurance.  Prices range for $1200 a year to $3500 a year for the same car.   Some of you know what I’m talking about. How can the insurance companies do this?  The Government of Canada determines the rules and guidelines to some extent. We know how the Drive Clean test was criticized and how the Government of Canada dropping the $30 Drive Clean Fee as of April 1, 2017.  Then, they started to scratch the surface of the carbon tax proposal again. A tug of war; give and take.  However, cars still need to be tested. I digress a bit. But, it affects how we buy cars, insurance and what we need for a good running car.  Back to insurance tips.

Challenges for the metal recycling industry

NUMBERS TELL THE STORY

The current overall metal recycling rate is about 30 percent. This means only 30% of used products are actually being recycled. It does not look good for us as a whole ! Where did we go wrong? There is a lot of talk about recycling and how wonderful it is. But, people are still missing recycled metals such as aluminum pop cans with regular waste.  The challenges remain as to how we can recapture more material for recycling. The expansion of community recycling programs and public awareness helps. The next generation may do a better job. Awareness is evident in advertising and public feelings. But, the practical process of recycling should be improved.

Just—Do It!

LOW RECYCLING RATES
Another important reason for the low recycling rate has to do with the design of various metal products. The growing complexity of various modern products and their material mix makes recycling increasingly difficult. For instance, a simple mobile phone can contain as many as 40 different elements. So, extracting every kind of materials from a mobile phone and reusing them in the production of new products makes it difficult. We know how many mobile phones are on this planet. Its time for someone to invent a better process. Or, have reusable phones or phones made from different materials.

Plastics/Aluminum:

Recycling plastics and aluminum uses only 5% to 10% as much energy as making new plastic or smelting aluminum
Recycling a tonne of PET containers saves 7.4 cubic yards of landfill space
