Saving Your Child from Lead Poisoning

Lead poisoning. We prefer to stay unaware, safe in the comfort of our homes, treating the issue like it never existed. That is until it comes down to haunt us, making us wish that we’d taken some basic precautions earlier. Lead replacement. A much talked about issue. Something everyone agrees is a must. But an issue that very few wish to deal with. The extra effort and costs in front of something that may or may not happen and isn’t the easiest or the most obvious to detect makes us want to push the dirt under the rug.

Magnetic Radiation Shielding Protect Astronauts in Deep Space

Radiation poisoning and the lack of radiation shielding has been one of the biggest concerns facing deep space astronauts for decades. Proper measures that helped protect our modern-day explorers in deep space were amiss, that is until an EU-funded project, the SR2S (Space Radiation Superconducting Shield) project, actually came up with a tangible solution.

Researchers now possess the expertise, the knowledge as well as the tools they need to create effective radiation shielding materials required to protect astronauts from deep space galactic cosmic rays, thereby diminishing their exposure to the risk of developing certain types of cancer.

Frangible Bullets for Hunting Deer

Big game hunting.An interesting concept.A fascinating adventure.But only effective when you have the right bullet. A bullet placement and design theory has come under the scanner. Some believe that it works and is exciting, but most others believe that it often fails dramatically and is incredibly risky. Some term this approach as frangible ammo or explosive, but inadequately so, as these bullets cannot explode, but they can certainly break down under pressure, causing particles to scatter throughout the tissue of the animal. Most varmint shooters are quite familiar with the effect as the frangible bullet often tends to explode the animal when applied to a 2-pound rodent.

Many deer hunters believe that frangible ammunition can have the same effect when applied to the lungs or heart of their target, and some even manage to prove it by carefully...  Read More
