The world's largest container ship has docked at a British port for the first time. On Wednesday, the 400 metre long CSL Globe, which carries 19,000 standard containers, docked at Felixstowe port in the east of England. The vessel, which left China in December, arrived at the Suffolk port sometime after 1230pm. Hundreds of spectators lined the coast to watch the ship dock, which is carrying a large range of consumer goods including food and drink, clothing, electrical goods and furniture. This vessel's tongue is the biggest in the world. 19,000 units. Ten years ago, 9,000.
Self Freezing CocaCola The trick that works on any soda!
With this one simple trick, you'll be able to take any bottle of soda, and pour out an instant slushy on command. Now if you don't believe what you're seeing, that's ok, but it is real, and in this project you'll discover the insanely easy secret to making an instant soda slushy. For this project, grab a bottle of room temperature soda, and start shaking it violently. We want as much pressure to build up inside as we can get. Now I've done this with these 500mL bottles, and set them in the freezer for 3 hours and 15 minutes. This is the point when.
They're colder than freezing, but not actually frozen. Now you can show your friends that it's just a normal soda, but watch what happens if we simply release the pressure, tighten the cap, and turn it upside down. In just 3 seconds, the entire bottle has turned to an icy soda slush. Pour it in a glass, and you'll get a good idea of how thick the slush really is, and when it starts pushing up at the top you can see it's a light and fluffy, delicious carbonated ice. Now let's try removing the pressure very slowly. This is going to.
Take a bit of patience, but when you get the cap off, you might notice, your soda didn't freeze. If you pour it into a frosty bowl that just came out of the freezer, it'll ice up right before your eyes. There's one chilled soda ready to be served. You could try keeping your soda liquified by pouring it in a clean bowl, then freezing it by dropping in one flake of ice. These crystals will grow rapidly, until your entire bowl is filled, and now we have another chilled soda, ready for your enjoyment. On a bigger scale, like in a glass,.
You'll notice that the crystals collect at the top. To get them to spread out, just take a spoon, or a straw, and give it a little swirl. You should see the whole drink quickly ices over. Now, if you're wondering why this works, it's because the liquid is supercooled and actually wants to freeze. It just needs some help getting started. Now this works with every soda, and sports drink that I've tried because it's the water in the drink that's actually freezing. As the ice forms, the syrup gets trapped between the ice crystals, so.
The slush keeps its flavor. If you try this yourself, keep in mind that every freezer is a little different, so just play around with the time it takes to get your best results. I tried supercooling canned soda and found that they work as well, but you have to release the pressure very very slowly or they'll ice up in the can. When you do get them open, you'll see the trick works exactly the same as the others. Well now you know how to superchill, your favorite soft drink, and master the art of the 3 second slushy. If you like this project,.
AntWorks Illuminated Ant Farm Gel
AntWorks provides you with a revolutionary way to observe the astute architectural brilliance of nature's beloved ants. This six and a half inch by six inch spaceage habitat is based on technology used by NASA. The translucent gel not only allows you to watch the ants create their network of tunnels, but also provides the ants with food and water for survival. Speaking of ants, you must collect your own or order some from the enclosed order forms found in your AntWorks instruction manual. This instruction manual also includes tons of interesting ant facts.
Once you've received your batch of ants, remove the lid and poke four holes in the gel using the included two and a quarter inch stick. These holes act as starting points for the ants to begin tunneling. Next, insert approximately 20 to 25 ants into the container. Larger ones, such as harvester ants, are recommended. Their size makes them easier to observe, and their large mandibles are great for tunnel digging. Avoid mixing different species of ants, as they could spend more time fighting than actually creating tunnels. Because the gel is a very foreign environment for ants,.
24 to 48 hours may pass before any digging occurs. As you watch the time lapse footage of our ants in action, keep a few things in mind. First, avoid storing the AntWorks in direct sunlight. Ants prefer shade, so put them in a room temperature between 50 and 74 degrees Fahrenheit if possible. Second, the gel consists of more than enough food and water for your ants to survive. In addition, ants require little oxygen, so the small holes on the lid are sufficient. However, opening t lid for a few seconds every week.
Wouldn't hurt. Finally, ants generally have a lifespan of one to three months. Some may live longer, and some may expire before a month. Once the ants have begun digging and their intricate tunnels begin to form, you can study their unique, intelligent behavior up close. Their network of tunnels is nothing short of amazing. AntWorks comes with a magnifying glass, allowing you or your child to observe specific ant mannerisms unable to be seen by the naked eye. The included extreme zoom lens lets you get even closer to the action.
The Best Vegetables to Grow in Your Garden Choosing the Tastiest, EasytoGrow Plants
Music People often ask us which vegetables are best to grow. The answer will depend on a number of factors, but the following 3 step process will help you to make the right choices for your own garden. First, produce a short list by selecting the vegetables that suit the conditions you have in each area of your garden. If you're using our Garden Planner, check out the Filter button at the left hand side of the selection bar. This enables you to ask the Garden Planner to just show plants that match your requirements.
For example, we can ask it to show us just plants that are easy to grow. This is perfect if you're a new gardener, or can't commit much time to your garden. Or, we can select several criteria at once, such as selecting herbs for a corner of the garden which are shade tolerant and can be planted in May in your location. You can also choose plants from a particular crop family, such as brassicas, that are often planted together so that you can place netting over them to prevent pests from eating the crop.
Once you have your shortlist, the Information boxes can show you what you need to do to prepare your soil and whether the plant has any special requirements, such as needing supports or protection from pests. Second, decide which crops will fit in the area you have. If you have a small garden, space will be at a premium and you probably want to grow high value vegetables such as tomatoes and climbing beans which produce a lot on each plant and would cost far more to buy at the grocery store.
On the other hand, if your garden area is large you may wish to concentrate on growing plants that need little maintenance and are easy to store, such as potatoes or squash. In each case, our Garden Planner will show you just how many plants can be placed in the area. Hover over a row or block of plants to view the quantity, or drag the handles to adjust the area for the size of harvest you want. Third, narrow down your selection to vegetables that you'll really appreciate your favourites, that taste wonderful when freshly grown.
For example, once picked the sugars in sweet corn start to turn to starches, so there's nothing quite like the taste of garden grown cobs picked just before eating. The same goes for fresh peas, which make a delicious healthy snack for kids. As home gardeners, we have access to many wonderful varieties that don't suit the requirements of supermarkets, and growing more than one type each year is a great way to experiment and learn what's best for you. By doubleclicking any plant and then clicking the button, you'll be able to browse varieties,.
Complete with their catalog descriptions to help you choose. Choosing the best crops to grow takes time. You need to consider the space you have, the soil and climate, your favorite vegetables, and whether you want to concentrate on shortlived but tasty summer harvests or longlasting storage crops. Are you going to grow crops that save a lot of money, or ones that don't require much time What about delicious new varieties that you can't buy in the shops Having all the information you need at your fingertips makes it easier to plan the right crops for your garden.
Start a Fire With a Water Bottle
Normally, we'd think of using water to put out a fire, but in this tutorial, you'll learn how to use water water to start them. If you're ever lost in a survival situation, here's a little trick you're gonna be so glad to know. To practice this technique we'll use 3 sheets of paper, and a water bottle. A paper with black ink is easy to practice with, so let's get started making this top sheet into a platform by folding it in half 3 different ways. The black ink is showing,.
And that's a good thing, so now we can prepare these other 2 sheets by cutting or ripping them in half. This gives us 4 pieces, and we can fold each of them in half so that they're creased down the middle. Alright, time for the action. We'll need to remove the label from this little bottle and use the convex edge as a makeshift magnifying glass to focus the sunlight. It only takes a few seconds to get this paper smoking, and pretty soon we've got it smoldering. When the hole is about the size of a quarter, we'll need to.
Slowly add multiple layers of papers. Swinging it around gently will help the air get to the embers, and when they get hot enough. a flame appears! That's it in a nutshell, but in practice you'll probably find that it's not quite as easy as it looks. So here are a few tips and tricks to help you master your technique. First of all, use a bottle with clear plastic and remove the label. The top should be smooth and rounded so that it magnifies the image on the other side. I've been successful with colored bottles like this green 2 liter.
And this little blue 8oz bottle, but the color absorbs some of the suns energy and makes it a lot more difficult to get a coal. The color of the liquid also needs to be as clear as possible, but in desperate situations, it is possible to light a fire with your pee. Look for how to do that in a different project. If you're using paper for tinder, use something with big black letters or pictures, or rub some dirt on it because the black absorbs the heat. Trying to do this on a white piece of paper is just going to frustrate you. When.
Focusing the light, hold the bottle close to the paper and slowly back it away, shifting the bottle around to find the area where the majority of light is concentrated. It should be very bright, and start smoking within a few seconds. Keep the light focused until a hole begins to burn, and grows to the size of a quarter. At this point, you can gently set the embers in the creased part of another paper, and hold it loosely at the corner. Tight enough so that the embers are in contact, but loose enough to allow plenty of air to.
Flow. When the embers have burned a hole through the sheet, add another one in the same way, pinching the corner and holding loosely. As the heat builds, and the process is repeated 2 more times, you should have a billowing bundle of smoke. It's at this point you can blow forcefully into the embers, and voila. a healthy flame. This is a technique that I've had the most success with. It should work for you, but might take a little practice. If you try this at home, you may be surprised to learn that you can rub the ashes into your.
How to Grow Hedge Screens At Home With P. Allen Smith
Hey, you have an area in your landscape that you wanna screen This little guy may be just the answer. Who doesn't have areas in their garden or their landscape that they wanna screen or hide You know, those eye sores that you don't wanna look at One way to look at it is, well, an opportunity, an opportunity to plant a living screen in the form of a hedge. Take a look at this hedge This is actually Needlepoint Holly. And you can see that it's about five feet tall. And when I planted it, I started with plants this size.
This plant will grow about a foot and a half, once it gets established, a year, which is pretty impressive. I planted these about ever three feet apart, and then over time, they began to knit together as well as grow up and hide the area that I wanted to screen. You see, you can't even look through here. I mean, there could be a used car lot on the other side, and you'd never know it. But in this case, there's just a green house over there on the other side. Now what's great about these Needlepoint Hollies It's evergreen,.
It has beautiful red berries on it throughout the fall and the winter and very early spring, and it delivers what it promises it's a great screening plant. The key to growing a plant like this is getting the right plant in the right place. These plants love full sun, they love soil that's well drained, and you wanna make sure that the moisture level is, well, consistent. Come on over here, let me show you something else. As you can see, this hedge is taller. It was planted at the same time as that other one. We just allowed.
It to grow up higher before we started cutting it off horizontally. The more you prune these hedges the thicker they get. We prune these about twice a year. They could be pruned a little more than that, but early on when you're trying to establish the hedge, it's good to prune it and make sure it's growing in the direction you want it to. The more you cut the more those little lateral limbs that come out, and it thickens up quicker. Now, the other thing to do is prune a hedge where it's slightly thinner at the top and wider at the.
