Hiring a Furniture Removalists for Home RelocationsJuly 6, 2021
Furniture Removalist Info
When you are about to move to your new house or office, furniture pieces are usually the things that make you consider hiring a furniture removalist. You may transfer those large items on your own but you may not have all necessary materials and equipment to make the removal safe and easy. Chances are your furniture will have new scratch before you even reach your new location. Thus the more practical alternative is hiring a professional furniture removalist.
Of course hiring a professional may cost a little more but with the proper materials and equipment used by the professional will be a guarantee that the furniture will be safe from breakage or damage. Different companies offer different fees so it would be good to first canvass for several quotations before formally hiring a removalist. Choose a company which offers the best value for your money. Not because one company charges high do not mean that its quality of service is the best.
The removal company you picked will perform a pre-assessment method wherein a consultant or representative of the company will visit your place. He or she will evaluate your belongings; determine which type of services is appropriate to cover for your properties and how much materials will be needed to pack everything adequately. Based on how many or how big your furniture pieces are, the consultant will verify what size and type of truck will be able to accommodate the items to be transported. You can check out the consultant's evaluation using online calculators for volume capacity of your furniture.
Packing for the Move
The professional furniture removalist also applies important techniques in packing, loading and transporting the large items properly. You also don't need that your furniture will arrive at late as the professional will work promptly to meet the agreed time.
Packing things is one of the preparations for the moving. Packing clothes may seem an easier task but not packing the furniture. This is one task you may entrust and appoint the furniture removalists to do for you. There are special materials and tools that the professionals use to seal and pack your possessions so that they are guaranteed to arrive at the destination in healthy and good condition.
Make sure you're insured
In transporting your furniture to your new home or office, insurance is the best way to assure that whatever happens to the furniture pieces, they are all covered for. Make sure to get insurance from your insurance agency before your move, especially if you are moving large fragile and/or valuable objects. Some furniture removal companies also have a free insurance cover to offer their customers as a freebie. It will be good if you ask the furniture removal companies whether they offer such services and its costs, when you are choosing the perfect furniture removalist for your move.
The furniture removalists are trained to be organized in doing their tasks. In your home, office or any workplace they may be hired for, they are taught to always practice being organized and systematic so that injuries and accidents which may happen to themselves, their coworkers, you and your furniture may all be avoided. On your part, although it is a noble idea to help out in the task, it would be better that you do not interfere and just let them do everything. For all you know you might just be the cause of delay or injuries. Some snacks might be appreciated, though.

A Phishing IQ Test that Could Save You $1,200June 23, 2021
Having been fully phished into giving away my online banking identity (and having suffered the follow-up banking hassles), I was curious - had I learned from my phishing experience?
How phish savvy am I?
SonicWall, Inc., based in Sunnyvale, CA, offers network security, secure remote access, and web and e-mail security, backup, and recovery products and services. Savvy marketing on SonicWall's part to help educate we phishing innocents with a clever little quiz, I thought.
According to SonicWall, some 755,000 other curious, security-concerned people have taken the Phishing IQ Test and only 6.2% rate a 100% A+ 10 out of 10 score. I completed the Phishing IQ test in less than 10 minutes and earned an impressive (if I do say so myself) 70% (7 out of 10 correct) score. Somehow, I managed to identify all of the sneaky, phishy e-mails. My already-been-phished status did leave me overly cautious: I rated several perfectly legitimate e-mail items as phishy.
I brag only to show that one can learn from being phished - better late than never, right? According to SonicWall, some 755,000 other curious, security-concerned people have taken the Phishing IQ Test and only 6.2% rate a 100% A+ 10 out of 10 score. Test results include the correct answers and an explanation of why the communication was phishy or not. Hints: Was your name personalized in the email (Apparently, it should be)? Does the Sender's From address match the url at the bottom of the e-mail link (Make sure it does!)? Does the e-mail send you to a formal Update url link (Always more secure) or instead include step-by-step instructions on information required (Definitely a red flag)?
Reportedly some 6.1 billion phishing e-mails are sent world-wide each month, with an average loss of $1,200 per person successfully phished (per the Federal Trade Commission and SonicWall). According to APWG reports, as of May, the United States continued to hold the top spot for hosting of phishing web sites, with 32.41%. China follows in second place with 13% and Russia in third place with 7.41%.
Not surprisingly, financial services takes the lead as most targeted industry, with 96.9% of all attacks reported by APWG in May. APWG's May Phishing Attack Trends Report (how eerie is that name!) confirms that the IRS and one tax preparation company were phished in May, along with many smaller brokerage firms.

How to Choose the Best Mosquito RepellentJune 20, 2021
One sure way to ruin your summer fun, is to get a pesky mosquito bite! Not to mention mosquitoes can be vectors for such serious diseases as West Nile Virus and Dengue Fever. If you're going to be spending any extended time outside, you may need a mosquito repellent. This is particularly true if you'll be outdoors in the evening when the mosquitoes are out in force.
How does a Mosquito Repellent work to Prevent Mosquito Bites?
It's important to remember mosquito repellents don't actually kill mosquitoes, they just make the skin surface less attractive to the mosquito so he'll move on and find a new target. They essentially mask the chemicals our bodies produce that attract mosquitoes making it more difficult for a mosquito to detect us.
What Makes One Repellent Better Than Another?
The effectiveness of a mosquito repellent is measured by how long a single application of repellent will repel mosquitoes. The technical name for this measuremen is the CPT or Complete Protection Time. For example, if one repellent has a CPT of 1 hour and a second one has a CPT of 5 hours, the second mosquito repellent is considered to be more effective, .
What Are The Active Ingredients In Mosquito Repellent?
In general, mosquito repellents are composed primarily of either synthetic chemicals or botanical, plant based chemicals. The best known synthetic chemical is DEET. An example of a botanical chemical would be citronella.
Are Mosquito Repellents Thought To Be Safe?
If used properly, mosquito repellents are thought to be safe. There has been some controversy over the safety of DEET since it's classified as a pesticide, but no evidence has emerged that it's a serious threat to your health. There has been no correlation with the use of DEET and thei risk of seizures, cancer or other harmfuf effects. Children should never use a DEET concentration over 10% since beyond this concentration, they can get systemic absorption and they may be more susceptibile to the effects of DEET. Children should never be allowed to apply their own mosquito repellent since they may inadvertantly apply too much.
Which Mosquito Epellents Are Most Effective?
Based on the results of CPT (see above), the most effective mosquito repellents contained DEET in varying concentrations. In general, the higher the DEET concentration, the higher the CPT or complete protection time. One of the most effective with a DEET concentration of almost 24% was
OFF! Deep Woods Mosquito Repellent. It gave complete protection for up to 5 hours.
If the thought of using DEET does appeal to you, you might consider a product called Repel Lemon Eucalyptus Insect Repellent. The active ingredient here is oil of lemon and it had a CPT of 2 hours. The label advised against using this on children younger than 3 years of age.
Less effective were mosquito repellents consisting of varying concentrations of Citronella. These products, including Skin-So-Soft formulations, had CPT's of less than 20 minutes. Mosquito repellent wristbands were shown to be completely ineffective.
Keep in mind that mosquito repellents can vary in effectiveness based on the temperature and humidity on the particular day you use it. When choosing a repellent, consider how long you're going to be outside. If you'll only be out for a short time, you may be able to get by with a citronella based repellent that's shorter actting, but doesn't use synthetic chemicals such as DEET. If you're planning to be outdoors for several hours, you may be best selecting a repellent that contains DEET.
Now that you know how to choose a mosquito repellent, you can enjoy summertime activities and avoid those annoying mosquito bites!

A 3D Printed Titanium Jawbone TransplantJune 18, 2021
One thing about working in technical services for a large company is that I got to see and experiment with some fairly advanced technology. I was in charge of maintaining and improving engraving and printing equipment primarily in a rotogravure print setting though we also did some offset printing. 3D printing is something I investigated for making print cylinders and plates. As I learned more about 3D printing I discovered we could easily use the technology to fabricate intricately shaped parts for our specialized equipment.
A 3D printer can produce a single part at far less cost than traditional methods which often required months in lead time and thousands of dollars for design, sand casting and machining. I could design a worn or broken part with 3D CAD and print out the part or contract the work to a business with more suitable equipment. If we view the human body as a very fine biological machine then it is easy to consider printing a replacement body part. An 83 year old woman recently had her lower jawbone replaced by a specially printed titanium replacement. This is how it was done and what we can look for in the future.
The elderly woman had an infection of the lower jawbone that did not respond well to treatment and had to be removed. Traditional microsurgical reconstruction wasn't considered feasible due to her age. It was decided to replace the entire lower jawbone with a 3D printed replacement. The project was a joint effort between the University of Hasselt, Belgium, several other colleges, Xilloc Medical BV, The Netherlands (3D design), and Layerwise, Belgium, who did the actual additive printing. You can get more details on the participants and procedure here.
The replacement jawbone is designed to mesh perfectly with existing bone structure. The information available doesn't specify but I'm assuming CT scans were used to achieve correct dimensions and shape. Such scans have been used to make models which help surgeons better prepare for delicate surgical repairs. Titanium powder was printed at 33 layers per millimeter and precision fused by laser. The titanium jawbone has holes and grooves to guide regrowth of muscles, nerves and veins. The finished implant was coated with artificial bone (bioceramic) by plasma spray application. I find the plasma application especially interesting because it is exactly the same method we used to treat certain drive cylinders for paper web handling equipment.
The custom fit implant allowed for shorter surgery time. Within hours the woman was able to speak and swallow and had natural jaw movement. After four days the woman was able to leave the hospital. A future procedure will add teeth. The implant is slightly heavier than the original bone structure but should cause no problems.
There has been limited application of 3D printed body parts, mostly partial implants. The transplant of a full bottom jawbone opens up more possibilities for the future. There is even some interest in printing human tissue and organs. All you need is the right "ink." My body is wearing out. I think I'll volunteer.
3d Printing ModelsJune 15, 2021
Creating 3D Printing Models of Your Choice
3D printing is one form of additive manufacturing technology which enables you to create a three dimensional object by laying down several successive layers of plastic, metal or other materials. Equipped with a 3D printer, you can create one single piece objects that you thought were impossible to create. These printers help you develop objects within objects, moving objects or even pieces with complex twists and details. However, you must remember that a very important part of this technology is the 3D printing model, which is created before you send the design to a 3D printer or printing company. Here are a few things that you must bear in mind when creating a model for your three dimensional, actual products.
These Objects are Seamless
If you are designer yourself, then you must keep in mind that unlike other designs created on software, these 3D printing models need to be seamless unless you intend to glue each of the parts together once they are printed. What this means is that you need to create the model using only a single seamless mesh because this will be a lot more easier and hassle free as compared to combining all the pieces once they have already been printed. So no matter what object you need to print, make sure that you start to merge the vertices and edges so you have a solid mesh that doesn't have any unclean parts.
Hollow the Material
Because a solid 3D printing model will require a lot more material to print as compared to a hollow one, most companies will ask you to pay more. Because the prices of most of these vendors depend upon the volume of your object, it would be best for you financially if you create a model that is hollow and not solid. However, you must also remember that because your model will not print hollow by default, you'll need to make some changes when creating the model so everything goes according to your requirements. If you are not yet aware of how to make these changes, either go to a professional company or designers who can create the model for you, or learn all about inner and outer shells.
Clean Your Model
Finally, because all 3D printers love well constructed models, you must ensure that you clean your model and make it as neat and accurate as possible. Fix any non-manifold or shared edges and make sure that you unify all the Normal direction for the perfect object. You can also further clean your model by using some of the most popular cleaning software such as netfabb Studio Basic. Overall, you must always be mindful of the 3D printing model that you are sending to the company because if anything were to go wrong, you would only be wasting your hard earned money.
Once you have your desired model in hand, you can take it the top most 3D printing service provider and ask them to print it for you without a glitch.
Knife Review: Buck 119 Special Hunting KnifeJune 13, 2021
Sometimes, in order to test a knife, ripe red tomatoes must die. The Buck 119 Special fixed-blade hunting knife that I recently purchased was certainly more than a match for a couple of tomatoes and some spinach. In fact, the Buck 119 Special is definitely one of the sharpest knives that I've used in recent years. It is far better than any of the knives in our kitchen knife block.
Where our dull kitchen knives often crush tomatoes, the six-inch blade on this big Buck simply slices through them like butter. Of course, this knife is made for hunting instead of the kitchen. The Buck 119 Special evokes the recognizable classic blade shape of a bowie or K-bar fighting knife. However, the handle has the milder shape and grip of a hunting knife. Of course, if someone comes at you with a tomato or banana, you'll be ready.
The Buck 119 Special is a working quality fixed blade knife that retails for a suggested price of $80. I was able to get it for about half that price at Walmart. While it is a ridiculous tool for cutting a tomato and trimming off spinach stems, this Buck is a sturdily constructed knife.
The blade itself is six inches long and made of 420HC heat-treated stainless steel with a satin finish. The blade has a standard hardness of Rc58. The handle is black as the night and made of a smooth resin material called phenolic. A polished aluminum guard protects the users hand and an aluminum butt completes the knife, discover more.
Of course, a knife is only useful if you can bring along with you on your outdoor adventures. This knife comes with a black nylon sheath that securely holds the knife with a strap and snap that goes around the handle. A belt-loop allows this Buck knife to be worn on the belt. But, unless you want to look like Crocodile Dundee, you might want to use a low key pocket knife around town. The Buck 119 is a lot bigger than my Swiss Army Tinker or Buck 425 Mini Buck pocket knives.
Buck makes knives to satisfy many users. The Buck 119 Special has been made for 47 years to satisfy "avid" users who want a functional, no nonsense, product that holds up to "rigorous" use. This knife is covered by a lifetime warranty that protects against defects in material or workmanship. Tthe Buck 119 is solidly made, right here in America, and it looks like it could last a lifetime. If you are looking for well-made products made in America, you should certainly look at knives from companies like Buck. I'm certainly glad I bought this knife, you can use it to make a great sandwich or dress a deer.
