Discarded shipping pallets, long used as construction material by gardeners, have now been discovered by crafters. Recent USDA regulations require manufacturers to treat wooden pallets before shipping to prevent the spread of pathogens. They either treat pallets by fumigating them with methyl bromide, a toxic pesticide, or by heattreating them in kilns. For reusing purposes, look for pallets stamped with an “HT”, which means they haven't been exposed to chemicals, at least not in the treating process. These new regulations designed to prevent invasive pests from hitching a ride in the wood mean some pallets really shouldn't be used in the garden or home, burned for fuel, or discarded where they can wind up in local waterways.
The history of Raleigh bicycles started in 1885, when Richard Morriss Woodhead from Sherwood Forest, and Paul Eugene Louis Angois, a French citizen, set up a small bicycle workshop in Raleigh Street, Nottingham, England. In the spring of that year, they started advertising in the local press. After World War II, Raleigh became known for its lightweight sports roadster bicycles, often using Sturmey-Archer three and five-speed transmissions. These cycles were considerably lighter and quicker than either the old heavy English utility roadster or the American "balloon-tire" cruiser bikes. In 1946, Raleigh Bicycle Corporation accounted for 95% of the bicycles imported into the United States.
Before he was a blockbuster movie star, and even before he was known as The Rock, Dwayne Johnson wrestled under the name Rocky Maivia. As the 20th anniversary of his first WWE match approaches, Johnson sat down to watch the match for the first time and share his memories of that night.
Amblyopia, also called lazy eye, is a disorder of sight due to the eye and brain not working well together. It results in decreased vision in an eye that otherwise typically appears normal. It is the most common cause of decreased vision in a single eye among children and younger adults. Early detection improves treatment success. Eye glasses may be all the treatment needed for some children. If this is not sufficient, treatments which force the child to use the weaker eye are used. This is done by either using a patch or putting atropine in the stronger eye. Without treatment amblyopia typically persists into adulthood and evidence regarding treatments for adults is poor. In adults, the disorder is estimated to affect 1–5% of the population.
This was hands down the defining moment from last night's debate: Clinton: "It's a good thing Trump isn't in charge of the law in this country." Trump: "Yeah, because you'd be in jail." But be honest, did anyone else expect one of the debate producers to stick their face right into the camera frame and shout, "WORRRLLLD STAAARRRRR!"
A cabriole leg was used by the ancient Chinese and Greeks, but emerged in Europe in the very early 18th century, when it was incorporated into the more curvilinear styles produced in France, England and Holland. It was first developed in Europe by the Dutch in the early 1700's, and made its way to America about 30 years later. The style of the carving generally seen in England is a lion's paw, and an eagle's talon in America. Many of the antique claw foot tables of the Queen Anne era, which lasted from approximately 1725-1755, stood on gracefully curved, slender cabriole legs. Several types of these exquisitely handcrafted antique tables with ball and claw feet include dining room tables, tea tables, bed side tables, candlestick tables, and tripod tables.
All sailboats have a rudder, an underwater movable fin that turns the boat. This rudder is attached to either a long stick, called a tiller, or a wheel that you use to steer. Install a steering wheel instead of a tiller to have the comfort of a wheel while cruising with the ability to make small adjustments with the turn of a wheel. Edson Ultra Light Aluminum Racing Wheel has become a favorite on the grand-prix racing circuit because of its low-weight slock styling and sensitive feel. They are available in sizes ranging from 44 to 80 inches diameter.
South Florida has experienced a significant increase in the number of people coming from South, Central America, the Caribbean and Mexico. This coupled with an increase in the number of tourists visiting the Sunshine State and acquiring taste for ethnic Latin cuisine created greater demand for food from Latin America. In order to meet customer demand and offer a more convenient shopping experience to our customers, El Bodegon supermarkets were established.
Burr mills do not heat the ground product by friction as much as blade grinders ("choppers"), and produce particles of a uniform size determined by the separation between the grinding surfaces. Food burr mills are usually manufactured for a single purpose: coffee beans, dried peppercorns, coarse salt, spices, or poppy seeds, for example. Coffee mills are usually powered by electric motors; domestic pepper, salt, and spice mills, used to sprinkle a little seasoning on food, are usually operated manually, sometimes by a battery-powered motor.
Caseology began as a couple of friends selling unbranded cases out of an apartment. As popularity grew, we committed ourselves entirely to researching ways to bring great cases to a lower price. Amazingly, people liked what we were doing and Caseology was born. Even after growing to mass volumes, they never compromised quality, or our hunger to make stylish products, mindfully design. They strive beyond aesthetics for versatile products with the customer at the center of it all, and Caseology has become one of the consistent top 20 best selling cell phone cases.
The royal French government used many flags, the best known being a blue shield and gold fleur-de-lis -- the Royal Arms of France -- on a white background, or state flag. Early in the French Revolution, the Paris militia, which played a prominent role in the storming of the Bastille, wore a cockade of blue and red, the city's traditional colors. According to Lafayette, white, the "ancient French color", was added to the militia cockade to create a tricolor, or national, cockade. The colors and design of the cockade are the basis of the Tricolor flag, adopted in 1790. The only difference was that the 1790 flag's colors were reversed. The royal white flag was used during the Bourbon restoration from 1815 to 1830; the tricolor was brought back into use after the July Revolution and has been used ever since 1830.
Bacchus was the Roman god of agriculture and wine, copied from the Greek god Dionysus. Bacchus was the child of Jupiter (whose Greek name is Zeus) and Semele, a human whom Juno (whose Greek name is Hera) had tricked into asking to see Jupiter as he really was. Since she was a mortal, she was burned up by the sight of Jupiter in his divine form. So Jupiter sewed the infant Bacchus into his thigh, and gave birth to him nine months later. As a child, Bacchus was tutored by Silenus, who was a great lover of wine and often had to be carried on the back of a donkey. Before he took his place at Olympus, Bacchus wandered the world for many years, going as far as India to teach people how to grow vines. He often carried a pinecone-topped staff, and his followers were goat-footed Satyrs and Maenads, wild women who danced energetically during his festivals.
For hundreds of years, farmers in the agricultural regions of southern Belgium and northern France have brewed ale to serve to the farm workers: food and drink were part of the daily wage. Often brewed in the winter months, when farming activity was slower, these seasonal summer beers became known as "saison" beers - French for "season." The flavors and strength found in different saisons ranged widely, depending on the farm's regional ingredients and the brewer's palate, but word of an especially tasty saison at a farm would surely help attract workers for future work. Saison 1858 is made from barley malt, unmalted wheat, hops, and a bit of spice: coriander and orange peel; the yeast strain is traditional, and is bottle-conditioned.
Maybe Papa John's doesn't use chemical dough conditioners in their pizza dough, corn syrup or sugar in the sauce, or preservatives and cheap fillers in the meat toppings. Maybe they go the extra mile to make a high-quality pizza that's as close to homemade as possible. Although the fact that Papa John's garlic sauce, which comes in little green peel-open containers, is made with a slew of additives – mono and diglycerides, partially hydrogenated soybean oil and the preservatives sodium benzoate and calcium disodium EDTA – does not inspire confidence.
Trump: the election is rigged. Democrats: prove it. Wikileaks: here's proof. Democrats: the Russians are interfering with the election.
Okay, it's been 36 hours, so these pictures are fair game.
