10 Accidents In Metal Industry! This Video talks about different kinds of risks that is associated in metal industry. So. that we can aware you about safety instructions. As you know safety of workers or individuals are primary concern for TTI. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ # 10 Slag Explosions Slag or metal waste is the waste material that remains after Ore-Purification. And that won't be used in the metal processing. Generally when metal impurities mix with water, for instance, a big explosion may occur. #9 Electric Arc Furnaces The electric arc furnaces have been substituting traditional furnaces in many steel plants worldwide. #8 Boiler Explosion Boilers are very important in the metal industry. They are defined as a closed pressure vessel where a fluid is heated by applying the resulting heat externally. #7 Fires One of the hazards to be considered in the metal industry is fire. Fire increases the possibilities for accidents to occur. #6 Moisture Water entry or just simple moisture in the boiler can produce bad results that could put at risk the worker’s live in the metal industry. #5 Slag Dumping We cannot consider the slag dumping as an accident, but the consequences of this action can be very negative. Slag or waste originate from ore smelting to purify metals. #4 Steel Casting ladle break Broadly speaking, the steel casting ladle is a tool used in the metal refining and casting. it is used to transport and pour the red hot metal. They are made of steel and have a refractory lining to withstand high temperatures. #3 Molten Metal Splashes One of the most common risks in metal smelting are the splashes of molten metal. It is in fact one of the points for risk prevention. #2 Eruptions in Metal Casting Centres A very risky event is the metal casting process. This process consists of pouring the smelted metal into a cast for it to become solid. #1 Fire Loops or Cobble this kind of accident can be lethal for workers who are near. The temperature of this kind of molten metal loops is extremely high. --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- FOLLOW TOP 10 INFORMATION-TTI Facebook Page:- MESSEGE ME https://www.facebook.com/top10informationssss/?fref=ts Google Plus:-https://plus.google.com/+TOP10INFORMATION10 Twitter:-https://twitter.com/TopTenInfor SUBSCRIBE:-https://goo.gl/F6pHMw INSTAGRAM https://www.instagram.com/top_10_information/ ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- CONTACT Me for Copyright Related issues, Credit addition and deletion: we will solve your issue within few hours https://www.facebook.com/top10informationssss/

Here are 11 of the most unusual findings deep in the earth like ancient and time primate fossils or trapped toads alive in rocks!! Subscribe to Talltanic http://goo.gl/wgfvrr # 7 Toads found in Rock One strange phenomena that still doesn’t have an explanation are toads that find themselves entombed deep into stone and continue to live. For years quarriers and miners have discovered to their surprise, live toads inside of the rocks they crack open. In some cases the toads are found 5, 10, and even 20 feet deep inside of rock. In all cases, they have no visible way in or out and yet in all cases they are all still alive. This bizarre phenomena is often called “toad in the hole”. No one knows how these toads find themselves in the rock, or how they survive without any water, food, or air. # 6 Ghost Miners in Mponeng The world’s deepest gold mine called the Mponeng Mine located in South Africa runs so far into the ground with so many winding tunnels that it’s almost like a dark underground city. The expansive, dark, and hot mine is almost impossible to completely keep watch over so every once in awhile an illegal squatter will be discovered. Mponeng squatters are called “ghost miners” and will find empty caverns to make their home in, illegally mine gold to sell above ground, and will even meet with prostitutes in the mines. # 5 The Bold Travelers of Mponeng - Desulforudis audaxviator In the world’s deepest gold mine, a new species of bacterium was discovered called Desulforudis audaxviator. Audaxviator translates to “bold traveller” which refers to the fact that the bacteria was found 2 miles below the surface of the Earth and is the only organism in its ecosystem. The strange bacteria has evolved to live without sunshine or oxygen. Instead, it lives off of hydrogen and sulfide as food, which come from the breakdown of radioactive elements. Basically, it’s a nuclear waste eating bacteria. It’s the only one of its kind and have amazed scientists with its complete solitude underground. # 4 Giant Roach Fossil Found in Ohio Coal Mine Geologists were combing through an old coal mine in an area known for its plant fossils when they discovered an extremely rare fossil. It was a giant roach fossil - about 4 inches long and twice as big as most modern American roaches. The fossil is rare because it’s completely in tact, while most insect fossils are only partial imprints. Fossils in the cave also preserved some of the smallest cockroach fossils ever found and their color patterns. Inside the coal mine, even more rare insect fossils were found including a rare ancient arachnid and a 60 inch long and 12 inch wide centipede. The chemistry of this coal mine in Ohio somehow preserved these insects with extreme detail that is not seen anywhere else. # 3 Dead Body found in Ghost Town Mine Hobby adventurers had the scare of their life when they were exploring an abandoned ghost town called Whroo in Victoria, Australia. The two were in the ghost town’s abandoned mine when they found a dead body covered in plastic and shoved into a deeper hole inside. The victim was a 50 year old man in a Neil Young shirt and the perpetrators were later found to be a 26 year old man and 30 year old woman. The details on this case are scarce, but it has all the makings of a really good CSI episode. # 2 Four Square Miles of Carboniferous Forest Discovered The fossils of almost an entire forest from the Carboniferous period was uncovered in the ceiling of two adjacent coal mines in Illinois. This discovery is the largest single-period fossil discovery in recorded history. Archaeologists delved into the 250 feet deep mine to explore and record the fossils. There were upwards of 200 specimens of detailed shrubs, trees, flowers, and even insects. # 1 Tiny, Strange Primate Fossil In the Krabi coal mine of Thailand, archaeologists uncovered a new species of a teacup sized primate. They found mandibles that belong to the pea-sized primates called Krabia minuta. Krabia minuta were native to Asia and are the ancestors to all monkeys, apes, and humans. They were impressively able to make it to Africa despite being separated from a body of water at the time that was bigger than the Mediterrenean sea. This bizarre find is very important for archaeologists, because it indicates a period of extreme evolution of primates in the area and will continue to yield more discoveries in years to come.

From amazing art to a mysterious train, these are 13 of the most bizarre underwater discoveries. Subscribe to Talltanic http://goo.gl/wgfvrr 10. The Cancun Underwater Museum has over 500 underwater sculptures dedicated to the Art of Conservation. The unique attraction offers divers a spectacular view of the statues that can be seen from a glass bottom boat. The museum began its venture in Cancun in 2009 and was completed in 2013. Each figure was made from a PH neutral cement, coral, seaweed and algae. The reason for this is to help benefit and protect coral reefs. Coral reefs can be created from sunken ships that fall to the bottom of the ocean floor. Creating statues are used to help save the ocean by creating a new way to grow coral reefs. 9. MS Zenobia was a Swedish ferry boat that sank on her maiden voyage in 1980 near Larnaca, Cyprus. After passing through the Strait of Gibraltar in route to Athens Greece the captain began to notice problems associated with steering. Once they arrived at Larnaca, the problem occurred again and the computerized pumping system was forcing additional water into the adjacent ballast tanks because of a software error. A few days after the ferry sank and sank in Larnaca Bay. Now it is a favorite dive site for visitors in Cyprus. 8. From land, the swimming whole Angelita looks like an average swimming hole. It is located in the Yucatan in Mexico. Divers have to plunge down to nearly 100 feet underwater to see the river. The “Underwater River,” is a cenote that is just an optical illusion produced by a cloud of hydrogen sulfide intermingling with the surrounding saltwater. 7. USS Oriskany is nicknamed the “Mighty O”. Was one of the small amount of Essex-class aircraft carriers finished only after World War II for the United States Navy. The ship was called for the Battle of Oriskany through the Revolutionary War. The aircraft carrier saw years of combat through both the Korean and Viet Nam Wars before the carrier was purposely sunk to become part of the world's largest artificial coral reef. 6. Several miles off New Jersey’s coast there lie an unanticipated site below the ocean’s surface. Two trains were found in 1985 but no one knows for sure how they got there. The most excepted theory behind how the locomotives got there is that in the 1850's the trains were being transported from the place they were built to their new home which was likely a rail yard. Because the locomotives were small, they could have been pushed overboard into the sea. Now the trains give an interesting spot for divers. 5. Yonaguni Monument is located off the coast of the Ryukyu Islands, in Japan. The monument is connected to a large rock mass in the ocean and believe to have been deposited over 20 million years ago. The main monument is a rectangular formation which measures 490 by 130 ft. The rock formation is made out of moderate to very fine sandstones and mudstones. Scientist who have studied the formation have concluded that some of the features could be manmade. One scientist believes that the site could be fragments of the legendary lost continent of Mu. 4. The SS President Coolidge was an ocean liner from the U.S. The large ship saw its nautical days finish after yielding to mines near the large military base on Espiritu Santo. Now the ship is used as a dive site. Divers can see a mostly intact cruise liner and a military ship. They can swim through numerous parts of the ship. There are guns, cannons, Jeeps, a stunning statue of "The Lady", chandeliers, and a mosaic tile fountain. Coral grows around the ocean liner where the divers can view sea creatures such as reef fish, barracuda, sea turtles and moray eels. 3. The Titanic, was the world’s largest cruise ship sank on her maiden voyage on April in 1912. The ship was touted as “unsinkable” and was supposed to be one of the safest ships ever built in history. She collided with an iceberg, and nearly half of the passengers lost their lives due to the inadequate supply of life boats on board. 2. The Lion City is a real life Atlantis located in China. The city was purposely flooded to make way for a build hydroelectric power station in 1959. Unfortunately, the city was forgotten but remains largely intact for being underwater for fifty years. Currently, there are plans in the works for divers because they like to use the metropolis to use as a tourist site. 1. SS Thistlegorm merchant ship that was sunk during World War II in the Red Sea. She set to sell for Alexandria, Egypt when two bombs were dropped on her from above. The bombs struck the stern of the ship, and it quickly sank. The ship and holds everything from vehicles, motorcycles, ammunition and other weaponry. Now the SS Thistlegorm is used as a recreational diving site.

Mid December we showed you this footage. Full version at the link above. How 2 Idaho girls who lit up methane and Hydrogen sulfide gases in the frozen lake setting the chain reaction that will result in Yellowstone eruption and of the United States end as we know it. Your comments were form fake news to Igor Kryan just put two girls to play with fire for entertainment purposes. Yes, Kryan Channel films lots of fun videos for entertainment purposes, especially now during the winter holidays, so our channel won't be just about fear mongering gloom and doom but this one was not one them, it was real. If it was real why don't you hear about on mainstream media? That's because all mainstream media are busy covering largest ever fire happening in the History Of United States between Los Angles and Santa Barbara. Kryan channel covers that fire too at the link above. And the events happening near Wyoming, Idaho and Montana border are far too remote, too desolate especially in the winter and hard to access for major news companies from LA and San Francisco. Kryan channel had to use all terrain snow mobiles to reach it and show you the growing doom there that will eventually consume the entire United Stares. In mid December when girls just lit the lake - the event was tiny, by Christmas it grow close to 1% of Santa Barbara Thomas fire area, still negligible for major news outlets to react while Thomas fire is 100 times bigger. But Thomas fire happening on the surface. This event will be 1 million times bigger than Thomas fire because it is hidden under the surface but you can already feel its effects 50 miles away from Yellowstone. Even before we reach the area - 50 miles away from the epicenter our team member was swimming in the ice opening, not because she is crazy and want to get sick but because the water was warm almost like your bath tub. The epicenter is no longer possible to reach on land thanks to Idaho girls who started under ice firestorm so we left out snowmobile and took helicopter and flew towards the columns of raising smoke form the ice. Once we got within 10 miles from the epicenter we saw the burning ice lake sending the tower of black smoke in the air, it was not just methane, but hydrogen sulfide and volcanic tar burning. The closer to the epicenter we got the scarier pictures we saw. Now, if you like you can continue this journey with us, or if you too scared than pack your bags and flee United States as far as you can because Yellowstone super volcano was awaken by those 2 Idaho girls.

RALEIGH, NORTH CAROLINA— Passengers on an American Airlines flight were all evacuated on Sunday afternoon when someone farted so hard that it made people sick. An unknown passenger reportedly passed gas and it stunk so bad that it warranted an actual deplaning. The fart apparently made passengers on the plane feel nauseated and overcome with headaches, CBS-affiliate WNCN reported. The plane quickly landed at Raleigh-Durham International Airport in North Carolina and passengers were let off the aircraft. Luckily, no casualties were reported from the incident. American Airlines later released a statement that said they did have an aircraft from Charlotte travelling Raleigh. The flight landed at 2:19 p.m. local time, and went out of service for an actual mechanical issue — and odor in the cabin. But it was not due to “passed gas”. Farts, flatus, or flatulence can actually make you sick. It is comprised of minor sulfur gas components — including hydrogen sulfide, and depending on the amount, it can cause headaches, nausea, skin and eye irritation. ------------------------------------------------------------- Go to https://www.patreon.com/tomonews and become a Patron now TomoNews is now on Patreon and we've got some cool perks for our hardcore fans.

#SaveBor – это фильм о национальном парке «Бузулукский Бор», единственном в мире реликтовом степном сосновом лесу. Весной 2015 года в России был объявлен тендер на добычу в нем нефти. This is a film about the Buzuluksky Bor National Park. It is the only steppe relict pine forest in the world. In the spring of 2015 a tender to produce oil here was published in Russia. Его выиграла компания «Новый поток» – предприятие, занимающееся только переработкой и не имеющее опыта добычи нефти на особо охраняемых территориях. Объявило тендер министерство природных ресурсов России. Ведомство, которое должно было защищать заповедники, само предложило добывать нефть в центре национального парка. It went to the New Stream company which at the moment only dealt with oil processing and had no experience of oil production on protected territories. The tender was published by the Ministry of Natural Resources of Russia. The state institution which has to protect national parks offered to produce oil right in the center of one of them.

The first thing you notice about Sarnia, Ontario, is the smell: a potent mix of gasoline, melting asphalt, and the occasional trace of rotten egg. Shortly after my arrival I already felt unpleasantly high and dizzy, like I wasn't getting enough air. Maybe this had something to do with the bouquet of smokestacks in the southern part of town that, all day every day, belch fumes and orange flares like something out of a Blade Runner-esque dystopia. Sarnia is home to more than 60 refineries and chemical plants that produce gasoline, synthetic rubbers, and other materials that the world's industries require to create the commercial products we know and love. The city's most prominent and profitable attraction is an area about the size of 100 city blocks known as the Chemical Valley, where 40 percent of Canada's chemical industry can be found packed together like a noxious megalopolis. According to a 2011 report by the World Health Organization, Sarnia's air is the most polluted air in Canada. There are more toxic air pollutants billowing out of smokestacks here than in all of the provinces of New Brunswick or Manitoba.

Opponents of sulfide "acid" mining in Michigan's Upper Peninsula held strategy meetings in mid-February to galvanize their single ideal: There is no place for destructive sulfide mining on the Yellow Dog Plains or anywhere in the Great Lakes. Opponents of Kennecott Minerals and their subsidiaries have teamed with a legend in the battle against those committing environmental crimes. Environmental warrior Lois Gibbs was dubbed the "Mother of the Superfund" after she successfully battled chemical companies in the infamous Love Canal saga. Save the Wild U.P. and other sulfide mining opponents met with Boston attorney Peter B. Sessa, who represents the nonprofit Gibbs founded and is executive director - The Center for Health, Environment and Justice (CHEJ) in Falls Church, Virginia. For several days in February 2011, Boston attorney Peter Sessa, representing an environmental nonprofit founded by Lois Gibbs, helped sulfide mining opponents galvanize their battle plans Groups opposed to the mine will unseat and defeat all elected officials who support the mine. No Democrat or Republican will be spared as groups seek to expose criminal activities involving Kennecott, its lobbyists and Michigan's greedy elected officials. Gibbs believes the pristine beauty of northern Michigan is worth saving and said the numerous sulfide mines planned will leave huge areas of the U.P. a moonscape. The Anishinaabe nation is sickened that Kennecott Eagle Minerals is planning to dynamite through sacred Eagle Rock in the spring of 2011 -- the desecration of a sacred religious, spiritual and ceremonial site for the Ojibwa. Ojibwa singer Bobby Bullett says placing the entrance of the sulfide mine in Eagle Rock shows a sickness of mind in humans and international corporations have reached. In fact, all of mines opened by Kennecott Minerals have turned into environmental disasters -- and the company has been accused of murder and human rights violations. Many Ojibwa believe that the desecration of Eagle Rock will lead to death and disaster for all those who enter the mine -- that opponents hope to halt in its tracks through ongoing litigation and new tactics that will be unveiled in 2011.

What is GOLD RUSH? What does GOLD RUSH mean? GOLD RUSH meaning, definition & explanation. Source: Wikipedia.org article, adapted under https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-sa/3.0/ license. A gold rush is a new discovery of gold that brings an onrush of miners seeking their fortune. Major gold rushes took place in the 19th century in Australia, New Zealand, Brazil, Canada, South Africa, and the United States, while smaller gold rushes took place elsewhere. The wealth that resulted was distributed widely because of reduced migration costs and low barriers to entry. While gold mining itself was unprofitable for most diggers and mine owners, some people made large fortunes, and the merchants and transportation facilities made large profits. The resulting increase in the world's gold supply stimulated global trade and investment. Historians have written extensively about the migration, trade, colonization, and environmental history associated with gold rushes. Gold rushes were typically marked by a general buoyant feeling of a "free for all" in income mobility, in which any single individual might become abundantly wealthy almost instantly, as expressed in the California Dream. Gold rushes helped spur a huge immigration that often led to permanent settlement of new regions. Activities propelled by gold rushes define significant aspects of the culture of the Australian and North American frontiers. At a time when the world's money supply was based on gold, the newly mined gold provided economic stimulus far beyond the gold fields. Gold rushes extend back as far as gold mining, to the Roman Empire, whose gold mining was described by Diodorus Siculus and Pliny the Elder, and probably further back to Ancient Egypt. Within each mining rush there is typically a transition through progressively higher capital expenditures, larger organizations, and more specialized knowledge. They may also progress from high-unit value to lower unit value minerals (from gold to silver to base metals). A rush typically begins with the discovery of placer gold made by an individual. At first the gold may be washed from the sand and gravel by individual miners with little training, using a gold pan or similar simple instrument. Once it is clear that the volume of gold-bearing sediment is larger than a few cubic metres, the placer miners will build rockers or sluice boxes, with which a small group can wash gold from the sediment many times faster than using gold pans. Winning the gold in this manner requires almost no capital investment, only a simple pan or equipment that may be built on the spot, and only simple organization. The low investment, the high value per unit weight of gold, and the ability of gold dust and gold nuggets to serve as a medium of exchange, allow placer gold rushes to occur even in remote locations. After the sluice-box stage, placer mining may become increasingly large scale, requiring larger organizations, and higher capital expenditures. Small claims owned and mined by individuals may need to be merged into larger tracts. Difficult-to-reach placer deposits may be mined by tunnels. Water may be diverted by dams and canals to placer mine active river beds or to deliver water needed to wash dry placers. The more advanced techniques of ground sluicing, hydraulic mining, and dredging may be used. Typically the heyday of a placer gold rush would last only a few years. The free gold supply in stream beds would become depleted somewhat quickly, and the initial phase would be followed by prospecting for veins of lode gold that were the original source of the placer gold. Hard rock mining, like placer mining, may evolve from low capital investment and simple technology to progressively higher capital and technology. The surface outcrop of a gold-bearing vein may be oxidized, so that the gold occurs as native gold, and the ore needs only to be crushed and washed (free milling ore). The first miners may at first build a simple arrastra to crush their ore; later, they may build stamp mills to crush ore more quickly. As the miners dig down, they may find that the deeper part of vein contains gold locked in sulfide or telluride minerals, which will require smelting. If the ore is still sufficiently rich, it may be worth shipping to a distant smelter (direct shipping ore). Lower-grade ore may require on-site treatment to either recover the gold or to produce a concentrate sufficiently rich for transport to the smelter. As the district turns to lower-grade ore, the mining may change from underground mining to large open-pit mining. Many silver rushes followed upon gold rushes. As transportation and infrastructure improve, the focus may change progressively from gold to silver to base metals. In this way, Leadville, Colorado started as a placer gold discovery, achieved fame as a silver-mining district, then relied on lead and zinc in its later days.

Dance by members of BUMP (ban uranium mining permanently) outside the Australian uranium conference in Fremantle as part of the protest against uranium mining. Several companies are trying to start uranium mining in WA, a state where there is still no uranium mining activity and it should be kept this way. The rally was against uranium mining for various reasons, namely: - Aboriginal people don't want it on their land - It is used for nuclear weapons - The waste stays radioactive for many years after the mining has ceased - Radiation leads to many health problems, some of which are only discovered in future generations. - It causes massive damage to the environment - Australia can meet all it's energy needs with renewable energy, thus discounting any reason to use nuclear power.

OIL USA OilUSA.co Petroleum oil based fossil fuels formed when sea plants died with ancient animals die. Oil is based on the remains that were buried millions of years ago under several thousands of feet of rock, silt, sand or mud. Gas, shale, oil sands, tar sands, oil arrives to the surface in many forms as the fossil fuels combine under the pressure within millions of years to develop into an evolution of energy namely petroleum which may be considered to be a non-renewable energy source. Fracking is injecting a mixture of sand, water and chemicals into a well. The mix cracks the shale and fills the cracks with sandy grit, allowing natural gas to flow up the well. Petroleum hydrocarbons are hydrocarbons pressured under the earth's stress into compounded carbon hydrogen atoms pulverized under strength, the force of the earth into petroleum based substances, which include the primarily element of sulfur. Shale is an abundant sedimentary rock found in basins around the planet. Oil can be found in shale gas. Petroleum shale gas is delivered due to hydraulic fracturing. Shale is being discovered around the globe with new technology to turn shale oil into energy. Shale fissile rock that is formed by the consolidation of oil mud, clay, namely silt. Shale has a finely stratified or laminated structure. Dark black and dark brown shale containing hydrocarbons that yield oil based petroleum by distillation. Shale has the potential to change economies. Power nations. Oil drilling a complex technical process surrounding the drilling of oil into the earth as well as the process of pumping petroleum based oil from underground wells. Pipelines in Alaska, Middle East, Canada, and throughout the United States of America are historically advancing as technology is established for safe efficient modes of energy transport for crude oil within the sphere of petroleum based products. Oil sands known also under the name tar sands. Petroleum based oil sands are geologically as well as technically bituminous sands that with recent technology in the modern age are developed into fossil fuels necessary for production, manufacturing and job growth. The petroleum based oil sands are a type of unconventional petroleum deposit. The oil sands are loose sand. The mixture is often referred to as tar. Petroleum in the oils natural elemental form is primarily collected under the title crude as in crude oil. Crude petroleum is often clear, green or black - There are many different petroleum oils. Petroleum is either thin like gasoline or thick as sands as in the title tar oil sands. Deepwater drilling for petroleum based oil is the process of gas oil exploration in deep water oceans such as the Gulf of Mexico between Florida and Texas.

These deposits form a mineralized package that is of economic interest to the miner. Ores recovered by mining include metals, coal, oil shale, gemstones, limestone, chalk, dimension stone, rock salt, potash, gravel, and clay. Mining is required to obtain any material that cannot be grown through agricultural processes, or created artificially in a laboratory or factory. Mining in a wider sense includes extraction of any non-renewable resource such as petroleum, natural gas, or even water. Mining of stones and metal has been a human activity since pre-historic times. Modern mining processes involve prospecting for ore bodies, analysis of the profit potential of a proposed mine, extraction of the desired materials, and final reclamation of the land after the mine is closed. De Re Metallica, Georgius Agricola, 1550, Book I, Para. 1Mining operations usually create a negative environmental impact, both during the mining activity and after the mine has closed. Hence, most of the world's nations have passed regulations to decrease the impact. Work safety has long been a concern as well, and modern practices have significantly improved safety in mines. Levels of metals recycling are generally low. Unless future end-of-life recycling rates are stepped up, some rare metals may become unavailable for use in a variety of consumer products. Due to the low recycling rates, some landfills now contain higher concentrations of metal than mines themselves.

US Navy Training Film MN-1511L http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bacteria Bacteria (singular: bacterium) constitute a large domain of prokaryotic microorganisms. Typically a few micrometres in length, bacteria have a number of shapes, ranging from spheres to rods and spirals. Bacteria were among the first life forms to appear on Earth, and are present in most of its habitats. Bacteria inhabit soil, water, acidic hot springs, radioactive waste, and the deep portions of Earth's crust. Bacteria also live in symbiotic and parasitic relationships with plants and animals. They are also known to have flourished in manned spacecraft. There are typically 40 million bacterial cells in a gram of soil and a million bacterial cells in a millilitre of fresh water. There are approximately 5×1030 bacteria on Earth, forming a biomass which exceeds that of all plants and animals. Bacteria are vital in recycling nutrients, with many of the stages in nutrient cycles dependent on these organisms, such as the fixation of nitrogen from the atmosphere and putrefaction. In the biological communities surrounding hydrothermal vents and cold seeps, bacteria provide the nutrients needed to sustain life by converting dissolved compounds such as hydrogen sulphide and methane to energy. On 17 March 2013, researchers reported data that suggested bacterial life forms thrive in the Mariana Trench, which with a depth of up to 11 kilometres is the deepest part of the Earth's oceans. Other researchers reported related studies that microbes thrive inside rocks up to 580 metres below the sea floor under 2.6 kilometres of ocean off the coast of the northwestern United States. According to one of the researchers,"You can find microbes everywhere — they're extremely adaptable to conditions, and survive wherever they are." Most bacteria have not been characterized, and only about half of the phyla of bacteria have species that can be grown in the laboratory. The study of bacteria is known as bacteriology, a branch of microbiology. There are approximately ten times as many bacterial cells in the human flora as there are human cells in the body, with the largest number of the human flora being in the gut flora, and a large number on the skin. The vast majority of the bacteria in the body are rendered harmless by the protective effects of the immune system, and some are beneficial. However, several species of bacteria are pathogenic and cause infectious diseases, including cholera, syphilis, anthrax, leprosy, and bubonic plague. The most common fatal bacterial diseases are respiratory infections, with tuberculosis alone killing about 2 million people per year, mostly in sub-Saharan Africa. In developed countries, antibiotics are used to treat bacterial infections and are also used in farming, making antibiotic resistance a growing problem. In industry, bacteria are important in sewage treatment and the breakdown of oil spills, the production of cheese and yogurt through fermentation, and the recovery of gold, palladium, copper and other metals in the mining sector, as well as in biotechnology, and the manufacture of antibiotics and other chemicals. Once regarded as plants constituting the class Schizomycetes, bacteria are now classified as prokaryotes. Unlike cells of animals and other eukaryotes, bacterial cells do not contain a nucleus and rarely harbour membrane-bound organelles. Although the term bacteria traditionally included all prokaryotes, the scientific classification changed after the discovery in the 1990s that prokaryotes consist of two very different groups of organisms that evolved from an ancient common ancestor. These evolutionary domains are called Bacteria and Archaea...

Deep diving has different meanings depending on the context. Even in recreational diving the meaning may vary: In recreational diving, a depth below about 30 metres (98 ft), where nitrogen narcosis becomes a significant hazard for some divers, may be considered a "deep dive". For some recreational diving agencies, Deep diving, or Deep diver may be a certification awarded to divers that have been trained to dive to a specified depth range, generally deeper than 30 metres (98 ft). However, the Professional Association of Diving Instructors (PADI) defines anything from 18 metres (60 ft) to 30 metres (100 ft) as a "deep dive" in the context of recreational diving (other diving organisations vary), and considers deep diving a form of technical diving. In technical diving, a depth below about 60 metres (200 ft) where hypoxic breathing gas becomes necessary to avoid oxygen toxicity may be considered a "deep dive". In professional diving, a depth that requires special equipment, procedures, or advanced training may be considered a deep dive. Deep diving can mean something else in the commercial diving field. For instance early experiments carried out by Comex S.A. (Compagnie maritime d'expertises) using hydrox and trimix attained far greater depths than any recreational technical diving. One example being the Comex Janus IV open-sea dive to 501 metres (1,644 ft) in 1977. The open-sea diving depth record was achieved in 1988 by a team of Comex divers who performed pipeline connection exercises at a depth of 534 metres (1,752 ft) in the Mediterranean Sea as part of the Hydra 8 programme. These divers needed to breathe special gas mixtures because they were exposed to very high ambient pressure (more than 50 times atmospheric pressure). An atmospheric diving suit allows very deep dives of up to 2,000 feet (610 m). These suits are capable of withstanding the pressure at great depth permitting the diver to remain at normal atmospheric pressure. This eliminates the problems associated with breathing high-pressure gases.

Bacteria are vital in many stages of the nutrient cycle by recycling nutrients such as the fixation of nitrogen from the atmosphere. The nutrient cycle includes the decomposition of dead bodies; bacteria are responsible for the putrefaction stage in this process. In the biological communities surrounding hydrothermal vents and cold seeps, extremophile bacteria provide the nutrients needed to sustain life by converting dissolved compounds, such as hydrogen sulphide and methane, to energy. Data reported by researchers in October 2012 and published in March 2013 suggested that bacteria thrive in the Mariana Trench, which, with a depth of up to 11 kilometres, is the deepest known part of the oceans. Other researchers reported related studies that microbes thrive inside rocks up to 580 metres below the sea floor under 2.6 kilometres of ocean off the coast of the northwestern United States. According to one of the researchers, "You can find microbes everywhere—they're extremely adaptable to conditions, and survive wherever they are."The famous notion that bacterial cells in the human body outnumber human cells by a factor of 10:1 has been debunked. There are approximately 39 trillion bacterial cells in the human microbiota as personified by a "reference" 70 kg male 170 cm tall, whereas there are 30 trillion human cells in the body. This means that although they do have the upper hand in actual numbers, it is only by 30%, and not 900%.The largest number exist in the gut flora, and a large number on the skin.

Endocoal Limited (ASX:EOC) reported today that the total JORC resource at the company's 100%-owned Orion Downs coal project in the Bowen Basin, Queensland, has increased by 54% to 41.2 million tonnes. The increase is due to the incorporation of a maiden JORC resource of 14.4 million tonnes at the Meteor Downs South project. Most of the Meteor Downs South project area has minimum basalt cover and shallow, thick coal seams and is ideal for an open cut mining operation. Progress is now underway for mine planning. Coring is also underway with a view to moving these resources to a JORC indicated status. Austin Exploration Limited (ASX:AKK) announced a further expansion of its United States oil and gas interests with the acquisition of a 34% working interest in the Bombing Range Prospect, the third major oil project since the company restructured its management 12 months ago. The company will spend approximately US$320,000 on drilling the well and drilling operations are expected to commence in the second week of December 2010. Brumby Resources Limited (ASX:BMY) has recently completed a reverse circulation drilling programme at its Brilliant Well Project in Western Australia. Drilling has continued to further test encouraging gold and base metals results returned from the April-May 2010 drilling programme. The best intersection was within hole BWRC055 which returned 11m at 1356 ppm copper, including 1m at 1750 ppm copper from 51m down hole depth. This anomalous copper zone is open at depth and to the east. Further drilling will better define the extent of copper anomalism. Malagasy Minerals Limited (ASX:MGY) announced a A$3.2 million capital raising to accelerate drilling and exploration programs at the Company's key nickel-copper-PGE and VMS-style copper-silver-gold projects in Madagascar. Extensive drilling and regional exploration are planned next year to test the massive sulphide system and the Bisha-style copper-silver-gold mineralisation.

Lead paint or lead-based paint is paint containing lead. As pigment, lead(II) chromate (PbCrO4, "chrome yellow") and lead(II) carbonate (PbCO3, "white lead") are the most common forms. Lead is added to paint to speed up drying, increase durability, maintain a fresh appearance, and resist moisture that causes corrosion. It is one of the main health and environmental hazards associated with paint. In some countries, lead continues to be added to paint intended for domestic use, whereas countries such as the U.S. and the U.K. have regulations prohibiting this, although lead paint may still be found in older properties painted prior to the introduction of such regulations. Although lead has been banned from household paints in the United States since 1978, paint used in road markings may still contain it. Alternatives such as water-based, lead-free traffic paint are readily available, and many states and federal agencies have changed their purchasing contracts to buy these instead.

On January 7, UFCW Canada activists joined more than two hundred other labour and community allies for a candlelight vigil held at the base of a Toronto apartment building where a Christmas Eve construction accident had killed four migrant workers, and left a fifth migrant with critical injuries. The vigil was organized by Justice for Migrant Workers and No One Is Illegal-Toronto.

Fifteen uncoupled simple pendulums of monotonically increasing lengths dance together to produce visual traveling waves, standing waves, beating, and (seemingly) random motion. For more details see http://sciencedemonstrations.fas.harvard.edu/presentations/pendulum-waves The period of one complete cycle of the dance is 60 seconds. The length of the longest pendulum has been adjusted so that it executes 51 oscillations in this 60 second period. The length of each successive shorter pendulum is carefully adjusted so that it executes one additional oscillation in this period. Thus, the 15th pendulum (shortest) undergoes 65 oscillations. Our apparatus was built from a design published by Richard Berg [Am J Phys 59(2), 186-187 (1991)] at the University of Maryland. The particular apparatus shown here was built by our own Nils Sorensen. Video courtesy of Harvard Natural Sciences Lecture Demonstrations, © 2010 President and Fellows of Harvard College

A safety lamp is any of several types of lamp that provides illumination in coal mines and is designed to operate in air that may contain coal dust or gases both of which are potentially flammable or explosive. Until the development of effective electric lamps in the early 1900s miners used flame lamps to provide illumination. Open flame lamps could ignite flammable gases which collected in mines, causing explosions and so safety lamps were developed to enclose the flame and prevent it from igniting the surrounding atmosphere. Flame safety lamps have been replaced in mining with sealed explosion-proof electric lights. This video is targeted to blind users.
