Vehicle Factories Stop Filling Landfills

By Ben Anton

With environmental concerns taking the forefront of a company’s public image, a number of industries are attempting to convert their manufacturing facilities to have a lower environmental impact. Leading the way are a number of vehicle manufacturers and their associated factories; the factories that make Honda engines in particular are becoming exceedingly ‘green’ and Earth-friendly. In addition to making cars, trucks, and other vehicles which feature reduced exhaust output, they are converting their factories and manufacturing facilities into zero landfill sites in an effort to greatly reduce the waste created by the manufacturing process.

Zero landfill factories are a new trend that is rapidly growing in popularity, allowing Honda and other small engine and vehicle manufacturers to be able to produce quality products without the waste and emissions that were previously associated with vehicle plants. Through conservation, recycling programs, and advanced emissions reduction technology, the goal of these zero landfill factories is to eliminate any waste from the factory being buried in a landfill. Any waste which is produced by the manufacturing process will be recycled or otherwise reused so that it doesn’t end up as a pollutant that could potentially cause unwanted environmental damage. This results in a more environmentally-safe product that consumers who are concerned about environmental issues can buy without worry.

In addition to the ground-breaking work that Honda has been doing to ensure that Honda engines are manufactured in environmentally safe factories, other small engine manufacturers are taking up the zero landfill call as well. Kawasaki, Subaru, and other companies are working to develop plans to convert both new and existing factories which will be able to produce both passenger vehicles and small engines with a minimal impact on the local and world environment. Many of these environmentally sound factories are designed to have a small enough impact on the local environment that they are even safe for wildlife which may live on or near the factory grounds.

Just because the zero landfill factories that vehicle and small engine manufacturers are converting to are safe for the environment doesn’t mean that they aren’t also cutting-edge manufacturing facilities as well. The factories that produce Honda engines are designed to be able to convert quickly from one manufacturing line to another, being able to produce a wide number of products with a high rate of efficiency and a very small turnover period from the manufacture of one part or vehicle to another. They are efficient in their workloads as well as their waste control, paving the way for a new type of factory in the 21st century.

To aid in the environmental benefits of zero landfill factories, a number of fuel-efficient vehicles are planned to be produced from them. In addition to standard vehicles and small engines which boast impressive fuel efficiency, it is estimated that at least some of these zero landfill facilities will focus largely on the production of hybrid vehicles as they continue to grow in popularity. It is likely that the fast conversion from the production of one vehicle or product to another will allow these factories to begin producing alternative fuel vehicles as they are developed as well.

Politicians begin campaigns for Flint, Michigan replacement mayor

Wednesday, March 4, 2009

Several candidates have announced their intent to run in the special Flint, Michigan mayoral primary election scheduled for May 5, 2009. The primary election was called to fill the remainder of resigning Mayor Don Williamson‘s term ending in 2011. The two candidates with the most votes will face off in the August special general election. Each candidate will need to collect at least 900 signatures of registered Flint electors in twenty day to qualify for the May 5, 2009 ballot.

On the first day petitions were available, the City Clerk’s office handed out petitions in the morning to Aron Gerics, Dayne Walling, Sheldon Neeley and Brenda Clack. Gregory Eason, Waseem (Sam) Fakhoury, Theodore P. Jankowski, Eric Mays, Devona Watson and Darryl Buchanan picked up petitions later in the day. Stephanie Robb Martin, a Flint Board of Education Trustee was one of eight more potential candidates that pick up petitions since then.

Darryl Buchanan, former City Administrator and “Deputy Mayor”, announced he is the running for the office of Mayor on Tuesday February 17. Williamson just replaced Buchanan as City Administrator on February 4, keeping him from succeeding Williamson as Temporary Mayor upon his resignation. Buchanan served as the city ombudsman and councilor before becoming city administrator. He believes he has good relations with the city council and was critical of Williamson’s combative relations with the council.

Buchanan supporters believe that Buchanan has the experience for the position of mayor. While some residents and a political analyst, Bill Ballenger, editor of Inside Michigan Politics, believes that his role in Williamson’s administration and their friendship hurts his candidacy.

Sheldon Neeley, current city councilman for Ward 6, announced his candidacy. Neely stated he will open three offices last week. Already, Sheldon Neeley has returned his petitions Thursday with 1,100 signatures to the City Clerk’s office.

Dayne Walling, who narrowly lost to Don Williamson in the 2007 general election, previously announced that he was running if the recall election against Williamson was successful. On Thursday, Walling officially announced he was running at a “Working for Change” rally at the YMCA.

I’ve realized for the past few years, Flint has been held hostage to progress. I just can’t take it anymore.

Genesee County Commissioner Brenda Clack served as Michigan 34th District State Representative from 2002 to 2008 switching positions with former Flint Mayor Woodrow Stanley.

Aron Gerics, a Mott Community College student and a Mott’s Workforce Development Program program assistant, intends to run for mayor. As a write-in candidate for the 2008 49th District House seat election, Gerics lost to Lee Gonzales, D-Flint Twp, the incumbent.

Gregory Eason is a former CEO for Jobs Central Inc. and a Williamson critic. Eric Mays is a political activist. Devona Watson is retiree and long time resident. Theodore P. Jankowski served in the Marines and produces a show for public access television.

City Administrator and Temporary Mayor Michael Brown stated that he will not run as he wants to focus on city business, and is slated to deliver the annual state-of-the-city address.

“He’s not just keeping the seat warm until someone else takes over,” Brown’s communications director Bob Campbell said. “There are some difficult decisions ahead, most notably in the area of the city’s finances. He’s all about the revival and renewal of the city of Flint.”

Additional public officials are considering entering the race including former County Commissioner Raynetta Speed and Councilman Scott Kincaid. State senator John Gleason D-Flushing is pondering a moving into the city to run.

On Tuesday, March 3, Darryl Buchanan, Brenda Clack and Gregory Eason all turned in their completed nominations to the city clerk’s office.

Rep. Barbara Lee calls for U.S. Congress probe into Iraq War planning

Friday, July 22, 2005

Congresswoman Barbara Lee (D-Calif.), co-chairwoman of the Out of Iraq Caucus and a member of the International Affairs Committee, along with 26 co-sponsors, proposed yesterday a Resolution of Inquiry in the House of Representatives which, if passed, will require the White House and the State Department to “transmit all information relating to communication with officials of the United Kingdom between January 1, 2002, and October 16, 2002, relating to the policy of the United States with respect to Iraq.” The resolution, was submitted in the House of Representatives and referred to the U.S. House Committee on International Relations.

The resolution comes in response to questions that have been raised about the handling of pre-war intelligence by the Bush administration, and the planning and execution of the Iraq war. “We would like to see a member of Congress look into whether or not the president committed impeachable offenses,” said John Bonifaz, a constitutional lawyer. “We’ve been having that discussion with a number of offices.”

Rep. John Conyers (D-Mich.), U.S. House Committee on the Judiciary Minority leader, recently met with John Bonifaz and representatives. But Conyers is reluctant to take such a bold step just yet. “My inclination at this time is not to do something like that,” Conyers said, although he noted that he wanted to press for an investigation in other ways, including sending committee investigators to London.

Earlier this month, Rep. Zoe Lofgren (D-Calif.) said at a forum held by Conyers “If you read the record of the writing of the Constitution, ‘high crimes and misdemeanors’ had a very particular meaning at the time of the drafting of the Constitution. It certainly didn’t mean lying about sex, but it might well mean lying to the Congress about a large public purpose such as Iraq.”, referring to Republican’s filing of such a resolution in 1998 in an effort to remove Bill Clinton from office.

Rep. Barbara Lee’s resolution of inquiry is a less-drastic parliamentary maneuver that would ask the administration to provide more information related to the claims in classified British memos that suggest that pre-war intelligence in Iraq was “fixed” in order to justify the invasion. The Resolution of Inquiry is a privileged resolution, which means that if it is not acted on in 14 legislative days after it is introduced, the member of Congress who introduced it is entitled to request that it be brought to the House floor for a vote. The committee may take the matter up right away, and could vote it down before the August recess. If they do not, they will be required to take it up by September 16th.

RESOLUTION

Requesting the President and directing the Secretary of State to transmit to the House of Representatives not later than 14 days after the date of the adoption of this resolution all information in the possession of the President and the Secretary of State relating to communication with officials of the United Kingdom between January 1, 2002, and October 16, 2002, relating to the policy of the United States with respect to Iraq.

Resolved, That not later than 14 days after the date of the adoption of this resolution—

(1) the President is requested to transmit to the House of Representatives all documents, including telephone and electronic mail records, logs, calendars, minutes, and memos, in the possession of the President relating to communications with officials of the United Kingdom from January 1, 2002, to October 16, 2002, relating to the policy of the United States with respect to Iraq, including any discussions or communications between the President or other Administration officials and officials of the United Kingdom that occurred before the meeting on July 23, 2002, at 10 Downing Street in London, England, between Prime Minister Tony Blair of the United Kingdom, United Kingdom intelligence officer Richard Dearlove, and other national security officials of the Blair Administration; and

(2) the Secretary of State is directed to transmit to the House of Representatives all documents, including telephone and electronic mail records, logs, calendars, minutes, memos, and records of internal discussions, in the possession of the Secretary relating to communications with officials of the United Kingdom from January 1, 2002, to October 16, 2002, relating to the policy of the United States with respect to Iraq, including any discussions or communications between the Secretary of State or other officials of the Department of State and officials of the United Kingdom that occurred before the meeting on July 23, 2002, at 10 Downing Street in London, England, between Prime Minister Tony Blair of the United Kingdom, United Kingdom intelligence officer Richard Dearlove, and other national security officials of the Blair Administration.

200 candles: Chileans celebrate country’s Bicentennial

Saturday, September 18, 2010

Chile is celebrating its Bicentennial, with several events that have been organized by the government for almost a decade. It commemorates two hundred years since the First Government Junta of 1810 was formed, starting the Independence process, that ended in 1818 after Bernardo O’Higgins proclaimed it.

The Bicentennial takes place on a holiday from September 17th until 21st. Sebastián Piñera inaugurated the official fondas (places where typical food and drinks of Chile are sold; similar to a tavern) earlier on Friday. Piñera also danced a “pie” of Cueca, Chile’s national dance, with Government Spokeswoman Ena Von Baer.

More than 60 thousand people gathered on Plaza de la Ciudadanía (Citizen’s Square) in Santiago to celebrate the Bicentennial. There was a projection of historical images that also contained a message from the trapped miners in Copiapó. A giant flag of Chile (18 meters of height, 27 of width; weighing 200 kilograms) was raised on the square on Friday morning.

Celebrations of the Bicentennial in Pichilemu started earlier this month. On September 2, two thousand people lined up in a formation to create the message “Viva Chile Bicentenario Cardenal Caro” on Pichilemu beach “Las Terrazas”. The message was used to create a postal stamp to be released worldwide. The event was promoted by the Government of Cardenal Caro Province.

Private schools in the city, such as Colegio Preciosa Sangre, prepared events specially for their students. On Thursday, “Fonda Don Vicente Nario” was opened on Preciosa Sangre. Several games were performed there on that morning, including “el emboque”, “ponerle la cola al burro” (to put the tail to the donkey), and others.

Another event on Preciosa Sangre took place on Thursday night, when students recreated scenes of the History of Chile, including: a tertulia featuring Manuel Montt (starred by Luis Rojas); a chingana (a popular tavern); and selected colonial professions, such as the “motero” (person who sold motemei and chestnuts).

The official fonda of Pichilemu, La Bombonera, was inaugurated on Thursday night by Mayor Roberto Córdova, who danced cueca with people who attended the event. According to Córdova, at least 30,000 people have arrived at Pichilemu as of Friday, and it is estimated that another 30,000 will arrive during the next three days.

A great event took place on Pichilemu beach on Friday afternoon. Chilean typical games highlighted the event. People danced reggaeton, Américo’s cumbias and cuecas, while others were swimming. The National Shoe Fair (Feria Nacional del Calzado) was established on Agustín Ross Hotel on Thursday, and will stay in the town until September 23rd. Alicia Grez, who works on a kiosk in the Pichileminian Craft Fair located in front of One Discotheque, said that “sales have been excellent,” and that “[they] won’t miss the possibility to experience such an event like this.”

How it all Began for James Gilbert and Son – Established in 1881

by

Giles Blunden

James Gilbert and Son was founded in 1881 on its current site in Acton, as a manufacturer of sieves and safety grilles for the machinery working in the gravel pits on the opposite side of the Uxbridge Road. The pits, once they became devoid of gravel were then filed in, concreted over and built upon to create the Vale Estate, intersected with optimistically arboreal names like Ash Grove and Beech Drive though some might agree that simply retaining the name ‘the pits’ would probably have been more appropriate.

James Gilbert and Son had by then established itself as a reliable manufacturer and purveyor of hand made wire work for industrial purposes and so despite the disappearance of the gravel works and with it the reason for its nascence, it persisted. More surprising perhaps is that it persisted in its original location around which developed a retail community, not the traditional neighbours of a metal works. Somehow however this strange curiosity of a business has stood firm through world wars and credit crunches and refused to be relocated to predictable soulless industrial estate of which the local area has plenty. Not that the environs of the Vale are without their own special brand of soullessness.

Now flanked by a post-office/mini-market and on the other side a pharmacy, both resplendent in the latest lurid plastic generic shop-fronts James Gilbert and Son is resilient and unapologetic in its unchanging Victorian fascia that seems to grimace and ask, are you sure you want to come in here? to those who approach the door. Indeed even those who dare to peer through the glass gain little further clue of what goes on inside from the dimly lit random selection of dusty architectural oddments. Only the occasional glimmer of a shiny freshly polished surface belies the fact that deeper within the steady beating heart of metal being honed against metal is still pumping out its wares to those who know.

How those wares have changed. Though much of the original machinery is still in place and not only kept in good order but used on a daily basis, the scope of its produce has changed significantly over time and expanded dramatically in recent years. As the demand for hand made sieves and machinery guards subsided the company began exploring a relationship with more decorative products for domestic use. Hanging baskets, jardinires, aviaries, and a wide range of curly metal objects were made for the house and garden all decorated with the trademark sconces and scrolls which became standard on such products in this era.

Eventually with the invention of injection moulding and plastics and mass produced imports from around the world, James Gilbert and Son was forced to find its niche which came in the form of decorative grilles. The decorative grilles that it still manufactures are made to the same pattern on the same machinery as they were over a century ago, though not quite by the same hands. James Gilbert and son have now been supplying the widest range of decorative grilles for longer than any other company in the world and are generally regarded as the industry standard in this field. They produce every kind of historical grille to have existed from the Renaissance period onwards, including regency grilles, perforated grilles and especially hand woven grilles. All of which can be treated to make them look as new or as old as the customer requires. A selection (though not all) of these can be viewed on their website. To these they have added a several ranges of modern grilles and meshes to suit the changing tastes; “though the styles always seem to come around again, says the current proprietor. We have clients who come in one year and want us to replace all their aluminium radiator grilles with brass ones because that is the fashion then 5 years later they come in again and ask for them all to be chrome plated or bronzed. Though their tastes change, the one thing they can rely on is that we will still be here”.

Giles Blunden has over twenty years experience in the metal fabrication business at

James Gilbert and Son

. Although historically

decorative grilles

have been the main focus of the business, the company is also involved in architectural metalwork, working with interior & set designers, architects, developers & private clients on both small & more prestigious commissions.

Report says US military gear sold to Iran and China

Wednesday, January 17, 2007

Fighter jet parts and other U.S. military gear that were to be sold to Iran and China have been traced back to the Pentagon. The gear was not sold directly to these countries, but rather it was obtained by middlemen who the sold it again.

In one case, federal investigators said that a Pakistani middleman purchased arms from the Defense Department’s surplus auction. The arms purchased were Chinook helicopter engine parts, which the Immigration and Customs Enforcement agency said did successfully make it to Iran.

In a second case, Tomcat parts were bought from the Defense Department’s surplus division. Custom agents confiscated and returned the parts, but later found out that the Defense Department had resold the parts to another buyer suspected of being a broker for Iran. Except for the US, which recently retired its Tomcat air fleet, Iran is the only other country flying Tomcats.

In 2005 alone, the profits made from the Pentagon’s public surplus sales were $57 million.

The Pentagon has had previous incidents in the past. In 2003, a Camden, New Jersey company, State Metal Industries, was convicted for selling AIM-7 Sparrow missile guidance parts, which it had bought from the Defense Department’s surplus auctions, to an entity partially owned by the Chinese government.

The Moscow Mule: The History And Resurrgence Of The Drink And The Copper Mug}

Submitted by: JT Smiles

This is the story of the Moscow Mule drink and mug, the rise in popularity, and a few recipes of the refreshing drink. If you mix spicy ginger beer, lime juice, vodka and garnish it with a slice or wedge of lime you have the refresing Moscow Mule, also known as a Vodka Buck. And you may take my word for it… it is refreshing and very GOOD!

The recipe became popular in the 1940’s as Hollywood celebrities took a liking to this locally invented drink and, of course, what Hollywood likes will most likely become a popular favorite across the country. Which is exactly what happened. And the Smirnoff company was particularly pleased as the marketing of the original Moscow Mule featured their vodka as a main ingredient. Then by the 1960’s, like many fads, the drink fell out of favor.

However, if you have been to a pub or a bar lately it’s likely you have seen one or more types of the beautiful copper mugs that is The traditional drinkware of the refreshing Moscow Mule. The copper, metal glasses are shiny and large often adorned with a handle of some sort as the glass gets frosty and chilled. Following the mention on a popular TV show, there if every indication the drink is back and may be here to stay.

The inventors of the concoction, John A. Morgan (Cock-n-Bull Restaurant), Rudolph Kunett (Smirnoff President),and John G. Martin(Heublein, a spirits and food distributor) knew they were onto something special. The men at the Cock ‘n’ Bull restaurant in Hollywood, Martin specifically, ordered engraved mugs made of copper with a mule logo and the drink and glass became forever linked.

What is copper mug made from?

Many of today’s mugs are copper-plated outside and lacquered. The inside might have a nickel, tin or a stainless steel lining. However, Moscow mule mugs can be made from 100% copper are available, but be prepared open your wallet! Several styles of the mugs are hammered to give it a brazen and worn luster. The mugs are pretty and bar owners today often have to take special precautions,like holding I.D.s, just to make sure the beautiful mugs are returned to the bar at the end of the evening.
