Welcome to another instalment of Behind the Desk! Today we are in London. Where we are very busy loading soybeans into ocean importexport freight containers. Containers, or boxes as I prefer to call them, provide a convenient means to transport goods between manufacturers and buyers. A tremendous amount of products, such as Electronics and clothing, manufactured in Southeast Asia are loaded into boxes, transported by truck or rail to the ship yards for their journey to United States consumers by large steamships to US ports. Once in the States, the containers are transported.
Either by truck or rail to their final distribution points. Rather than ship these containers back to the ship yards empty, and paying the railroad to move empty freight, these boxes are utilized to carry bulk commodities back to Southeast Asia. US produced corn, soybeans, wheat and DDG's Distiller's dried grains are commonly loaded into these containers for export to Southeast Asia. Heritage Cooperative has been participating in the container loading business for almost 10 years. We ship soybeans out of our London, Derby, Kileville branches and occasionally Mechanicsburg and Marysville will join in.
The fun. In order for the process to work, the branch needs to be in close proximity to an intermodal railroad yard, like Columbus, that has market access to empty boxes and ability to load full boxes. Container loading is a labor intensive process for our branches. Each box has specific weight and grade guidelines that must be met. A conveyor is used to load the box from one end and cardboard is used to hold the grain in place until the doors can be closed. The container market provides a completive market for branches.
That would normally have to rely on hauling by truck to a local processor. In some years we have loaded as many as 3 million bushels of beans, which equates to over 3,000 containers. The prime loading opportunities also coincide with our harvest and winter bean exports program. Once we load the container at one of Heritage facilities it takes about one month the get to the port of call in the Asian Pacific Rim. The next time you're waiting at a railroad crossing as a train passes containing boxes, there's a good chance some of them may contain.
Hall Tree Accessory Rack The Garden Home Challenge With P. Allen Smith
Mirror, mirror on the wall, will this house ever be finished at all You watched us design and build this house in 150 days, but the work is far from over. We're about to jump into my favorite part of the process of bringing all this together. Join me for an exclusive look right here on eHow Home. This is a really wacky and fun piece. You know, you might call it a piece of late 19th century Americana. It's certainly Victorian, so it would be Victoriana, I suppose. But I love all of the whimsical shapes and forms to it. It looks like it could.
Sprout legs and run across garden. It looks like something out of a Tim Burton film or Dr. Seuss. Well, it's a hall tree. It has a mirror in here to make sure you have your scarf on right and your hat. All of these little hooks and places to hang things are for hats and scares and walking sticks and umbrellas. And if you look down here, you can see, it even had an umbrella pan at the base where umbrellas could sit here and they would drip into the pan. But, sadly, the pan was lost some time ago. When I found this.
It was painted black, but that color didn't really work inside the house. It was just a little too harsh. So I painted it this soft taupe color just by using some Krylon spray paint. Looks pretty good, don't you think You can imagine with it painted black it would really have some stark contrast against our white walls in the house. That's another reason to tone it done and go with this taupe. The form of itself creates high contrast against plain walls. You can just imagine this silhouette. I think that's what makes it so whimsical.

Today Panasonic News Portal takes you to beautiful Sulawesi Island, in the central region of Indonesia where Panasonic is taking part in an event in collaboration with the Indonesian Red Cross Society. Every five years, the Indonesian Red Cross hosts a Youth Red Cross event called JUMBARA, an Indonesian term meaning together for a cause and to be happy. This year an estimated 3000 participants from all over Indonesia as well as other parts of the world are expected to attend this six day event.

During JUMBARA, the Life Innovation Container will be used as the Red Cross mobile office and will also power various electronic equipments that are needed in the Red Cross tent, exhibiting its ability to provide electricity even in offgrid areas. The participation at JUMBARA and collaboration with nonprofit organizations.
Container gardening is the practice of growing plants exclusively in containers instead of planting them in the ground. A windowsill, patio, deck, or a doorstep will provide sufficient space for a productive minigarden. There are many benefits to container gardening. You can save money you know exactly what herbicides or pesticides were used, if any gardening naturally calms and reduces stress it is a great form of physical exercise, and fresh produce tastes better and is healthy. To get started on your container garden, choose a sunlit area in which to place the containers.
decide which plants you want to grow. I recommend you grow what you eat and grow vegetables that continue to produce after first harvest, such as tomatoes, peppers, and bush beans. Next, choose a good planter. Vegetables with shallow roots such as lettuce, radishes and herbs can grow in as little as 8 inches of soil depth. Larger plants, such as tomatoes, bush beans and squash, need deeper and larger pots. It is important to check for moisture of the soil at least two times a day. Potted gardens need more watering than regular.
Gardens because of the confined space. They tend to dry out more quickly than a traditional row garden. These are just a few tips on how to get started with your container gardens. You can raise substantial amounts of many edibles in containers on a patio, deck, porch, or balcony. Remember to select vegetables that you like, select vegetables that can be easily stored or preserved and select vegetables that are expensive to buy in the grocery store. More detailed information about container gardening can be found on our blog. Happy planting and happy eating!.
Attract Backyard Birds
All kinds of birds will flock to your yard daily if you provide these 3 basic needs. To attract the largest variety of birds, offer several kinds of foods. Cardinals will feast on sunflower seeds, Chickadees favor black oil sunflower seeds, and Blue Jays just can't resist shelled peanuts. If you wanna keep it simple, a good quality bird seed mix will satisfy most birds. And don't forget about the feeding station. This one combines the four basic feeder types to attract many birds. There are two tubes for small and large seeds.
A hopper feeder, a suet feeder, and a platform feeder. Shelter is a key factor too. Birds are more likely to linger in your yard between meals if you provide protective places to rest. Evergreen trees and shrubs and favorite hiding places. So are brush piles. It's important to provide constant access to fresh water in a backyard bird habitat. This is critical during the winter when most natural sources are frozen. There are many heated bird bath options available or you can use a small heater to keep water from freezing an irregular bird.

Custom Homes remodeling, building bomb shelter and bunkers
I am Mike Scarlett and I build homes. One of the things I like to do is treat each home as if it were my home. As soon as I walk in the door to talk to the customer about their project, I am going to make sure that I think of every little detail that I can as if it were my own home. If I build your home, you are going to be proud of it and I am going to be proud of it. I am passionate about what I do. I love what I do I always have, ever since I was a freshman.
In high school. I've been doing it for a long time, it's the only job I ever had. I don't want to do anything else. And I think that passion will come through in your project. One of the other things that I constantly hear is your enthusiasm. I am one of those guys that on the weekend when maybe some other guys are watching football games, I am watching TV shows and indiscernible shows and so on. And people have told me that the passion that you have for what you do always comes out.
I am also very honest. If I say I am going to build something in a certain way, that's exactly how I am going to build it. If I say it's going to cost a certain amount of money, that's exactly what you are going to pay. One of the things that I am really proud of is some of the awards I won in the past. I was particularly proud of the Green Parade of Homes in Dalton in 2006. The judges gave me 7 first place awards out of the possible 10 categories. One was the judge's favorite.
Home. They like my home better than all the other builders, which was always nice. But the Craftsmanship was the one that I really like because I spend a lot of time a lot of detail went into this house. That's something that I am always going to look back on and I was really proud of. I really make it a point to make sure that the customer knows that I am looking out for them in the long run, whether they plan to stay in that house for a longtime, never move.
