September 27, 2019 — For all their many virtues, wind and solar power have one major flaw: at some point, even in the windiest, sunniest parts of the planet the wind stops blowing and the energy-giving rays of the sun disappear over the horizon. So as the world works to decarbonize its energy supply by reducing its reliance on coal, natural gas and petroleum and increasing its use of these variable renewable sources of electricity for the grid, one technology in particular is experiencing a renaissance: the stationa...

“Ain’t no doubt that the river is the Boss; she does what she wants, goes where

“Ain’t no doubt that the river is the Boss; she does what she wants, goes where she wants, and there ain’t no bargaining with her.” Those words were spoken to me by an old river man, years ago after a scary incident I had on the White River at nearby Waverly. Rivers have always captivated people. Books such as “A River Runs Through It,” have become classics, as are songs such as “Old Man River,” “Moon River,” “Proud Mary” and even the Indiana state song, “On the Banks of the Wabash. So today let’s all kayak down the Wabash River, putting in at the Department of Natural Resources launch site just west of Delphi. We will paddle 9 1/2 miles down river to our takeout point, the confluence of the Tippecanoe and the Wabash Rivers. Before we head out, let’s review a little Wabash River history. As all rivers do, it starts as a small stream, and in the case of the Wabash it starts as a tiny stream in Ohio. Widening and deepening into the heartland of Indiana, it travels southwesterly for 475 miles, draining over 60 counties, and finally merges with the Ohio River. Considered our state river, the Wabash is also the longest free-flowing river east of the Mississippi. No different than any...

As the debate continues on superannuation policy and ideas like allowing low income earners to opt

As the debate continues on superannuation policy and ideas like allowing low income earners to opt out of compulsory payments, Open Drum asked readers how they envisioned their retirement. For Tara Rymer, the outlook is a tad bleak. When I was in my early 20s I would often think about retirement as I watched caravans pass on the highway; stickers such as “Adventure before Dementia” and “Grey Nomads” plastered on the rear windows. I imagined myself and my partner Steve doing the same, finally travelling once free from the demands of work and raising young children, cherishing a time when it would be just he and I once again. Travelling across country and cruises will likely be an unachieved dream. With the pittance that is the pension and my measly amount of superannuation, I expect the cost of living will drain the finances fairly quickly, let alone leave any funds for travel. The reality of retirement and aging is daunting. Will I be able to afford to eat? To feed the cat? To pay for all the medications my decrepit, falling apart body will rely on to function? To pay for my husband’s funeral? (He’s slightly amused by the fact I’ve resig...

Parts Rush: Young Dept. Manager Ends Up in Music Limelight

Confession: As much as I like to preach about focus and discipline, I’m as guilty as anyone in chasing the shiny object, sprinting down the rabbit hole or, as we say in my men’s group at church, falling prey to that swiveling head of a dog in the backyard: “SQUIRREL Alert!” A bit of a side hobby is noticing farm equipment references in history, news and culture. I’ve also been told I get overly enthused by even the tiniest of references (and occasionally, picking out the mistaken reality of how something is portrayed). A few examples of things that draw me in … the White Farm Equipment and Versatile dealer (and son-in-law/combine salesman Jake Gyllenhaal) in Brokeback Mountain, the Massey Ferguson dealership destroyed by a tornado in Twister and even the dark connection of implement manufacturer to the evil-doings of Dr. Josef Mengele as shared in The Killing of the SS. Last Friday (while the wife and kids were in the basement binge-watching The Office), I had a date with Netflix. A free documentary selection would deliver something of interest, as I’d known that progressive rock icon, Rush, had a tie to farm equipment. I tuned into the 2010 documentary: Rush: Beyond the L...

Hazardous Child Labor in United States Tobacco Farming

Children working on tobacco farms in the United States are exposed to nicotine, toxic pesticides, and other dangers. Child tobacco workers often labor 50 or 60 hours a week in extreme heat, use dangerous tools and machinery, lift heavy loads, and climb into the rafters of barns several stories tall, risking serious injuries and falls. The tobacco grown on US farms is purchased by the largest tobacco companies in the world. Ninety percent of tobacco grown in the US is cultivated in four states: North Carolina, Kentucky, Tennessee, and Virginia. Between May and October 2013, Human Rights Watch interviewed 141 child tobacco workers, ages 7 to 17, who worked in these states in 2012 or 2013. Nearly three-quarters of the children interviewed by Human Rights Watch reported the sudden onset of serious symptoms—including nausea, vomiting, loss of appetite, headaches, dizziness, skin rashes, difficulty breathing, and irritation to their eyes and mouths—while working in fields of tobacco plants and in barns with dried tobacco leaves and tobacco dust. Many of these symptoms are consistent with acute nicotine poisoning. Based on our findings set out in this report, Human Rights Watch believe...

News Corp is a network of leading companies in the worlds of diversified media, news, education, and information services. IT’S a kitchen staple that most people use every day, so get the best pepper mill you can and your taste buds will thank you for it. Peugeot – they of car-making fame – made the first pepper mill with a built-in metal grinder way back in 1842, but since metal can corrode and wear, many of today’s pepper mills have ceramic mechanisms because they’re more durable. Manual crush designs are the most common and work by holding the body of the mill and twisting the top section and only have one coarseness setting. Battery-operated ones are essentially the same as manual crush models but grind pepper at the touch of a button, while precision grinders allow you to adjust how coarsely you want to grind the pepper. As a general rule, finely ground pepper gives a more even flavour and is best used in things such as sauces where a smooth texture is important; a coarse grind is best for steaks, marinades and general seasoning. After you’ve decided which type you’d like, the other thing to consider is whether you mind a little pepper residue left on your worktops or...

Appliance Science: HEPA filters and the physics of fresh air

HEPA air filters promise to take nasty things out of the air, removing cigarette smoke, pollen and other irritants. How do they do this? Appliance Science looks at how HEPA air filters work, and how to tell the real from the fake. Fresh air? More like stinky, germ-filled and particle-laden air. The air that you breathe is filled with all manner of things, from visible dust to invisible (but stinky) chemicals. Most of these things are harmless, but some can be harmful to your health, especially for those with conditions such as asthma. For these people, relief can come in the form of a HEPA (short for “High Efficiency Particulate Arrestance” or “Air,” depending on who you ask) filter that removes the ick, pumping out clean, stink and dust-free air. HEPA is a US government standard, first set in 1983. The standard says that to earn the name, a filter must capture at least 99.97 percent of particles larger than 0.3 µm (micrometers, or microns) in size, while only impeding the flow of air by a relatively small amount. The progression of modern of air filters design goes back much further, though: the technology behind them was developed to capture tiny radioa...
