  • Nature inspires a greener way to make colorful plastics

    Recycling and Waste News -- ScienceDaily

    Long before humans figured out how to create colors, nature had already perfected the process -- think stunning, bright butterfly wings of many different hues, for example. Now scientists are tapping into those secrets to develop a more environmentally friendly way to make colored plastics. Their method uses structure -- or the shapes and architectures of materials -- rather than dyes, to produce colors.

    I just finished crocheting this striped reusable tote bag. Each year I crochet a recycled bag item for my local Relay for Life event. They use the donated items in gift baskets and for their fundraising. I used my ultimate recycled grocery tote pattern to crochet this bag. I just added three rows with pink recycled plastic bags or plarn, one row with blue, and then three final rows in pink again before switching back to white plarn. Finding the colored plastic bags isn’t easy and just a few can spice up a plain white tote bag such as this one. Plus I always like to use pink in my…

    For decades, crystal-clear water bubbling from the ground has driven Florida tourism, via scuba divers, canoeists, boaters and swimmers, but today, many of those springs aren't healthy. Although the blame for algae-choked springs is often pinned on excess nitrate, scientists say the absence of algae-eating native freshwater snails known as Elimia may be a key to restoring the springs' health.

    Recycling News
    29 Jul 2014 | 4:54 pm
    Monterey County is one step closer to being plastic bag free in all retail stores! Yesterday the Board of Supervisors unanimously approved the introduction of an ordinance banning single-use plastic bags, and placing a ten cent minimum charge on each paper or reusable bag for customers who don't bring in their own bags and need one. The ban, once approved and formally adopted at an August 26 hearing, would be effective in unincorporated areas only. Monterey County provides some of the best views of the Pacific coastline in the state, and two of its cities, Monterey and Carmel, have…

    Last week the Humboldt County Board of Supervisors voted to begin work on a single-use bag ordinance for grocery, drug, and convenience stores in its unincorporated areas. According to media reports, the ordinance will be similar to the proposed statewide bill, SB 270, to ban single-use plastic grocery bags, although there may be some differences in the charge on allowed bags. The state bill specifies a ten cent minimum charge per paper or reusable bag. This amount is also specified in many of the 113 local ordinances across the state, including in LA County which reported an initial 95%…

At the initial ban proposal most businesses were in support, as they’ve seen other similar bans successfully implanted without problem.

The baby booties were crocheted using my cuffed baby sock booties pattern and the hat is my baby ribbed hat pattern. I did work a few extra increases until I worked the hat even on 56 stitches so my hat is about 14 inches wide.

    The moss stitch is a pretty crochet stitch that I used to make this little baby blanket. There are several versions of the stitch and I used the one below to crochet a preemie baby blanket for the 2014 NICU baby blankets for Christmas drive that Kathryn heads up over at Crochetville each year. This was my first attempt at using the stitch and because I needed just a small blanket for the NICU babies, I chained 95 to begin using a H (5 mm) crochet hook. This resulted in a beginning chain about 22 inches long. Here are the details in US terms for crocheting a small baby blanket as shown using…

    I picked this thing up because the design attracted me. Then my antique loving friend came by and said: Oh, that’s pretty, what is it?No idea to be honest, though obviously it had been the support of something. But I was happy she approved of my rescue.So I listed it as ‘a pedestal or something like that’. Two days later a young artist picked it up who told me he was going to use it for one of his concrete sculptures. My friend was thrilled when I told her that.

The Man dragged it home years ago, and as I can always use extra storage it served to stock my yarn for a long time. Then, replaced by something prettier I decided to get rid of the heavy clumsy thing. But waiting in vain for a buyer I almost re-trashed it.Glad after all I didn’t.

Another class cut-up has graduated from our motor pool. The Nissan Cube’s indefatigable weirdness was likely both its chief selling point and its Achilles Heel, but Autoblog sources say that after a six-year run in the US, the niche player has been scrubbed from the Japanese automaker’s lineup. The move is hardly unexpected – there was confirmation from Nissan Canada that it was pulling the plug on the…

    The length of this car is amazing! What can we say about Lincoln circa 1966, except that it is everything the Lincoln of today is not? The automaker has taken a step forward with the MKZ, but it’s going to take awhile to straighten out its once-prestigious house.  In 1966, there was no MK-everything alphabet soup. There was just the Continental, and that was enough. The Continental’s advertisements were as understated as its styling (though we prefer the details seen on the earlier years of this body style). Take this example, pulled from a moldering issue of Status magazine.
