The Truth About Plastic Bags

The truth is plastic bags, like a coin, have two facesa positive and negative one. Whether it is a shopping bag, grocery bag, trash bag, food bag, or whatever bag it is, they are all made of plastics. Grocery store baggers are very generous in using plastics. They place the fruits in one bag, drop the box of milk in another, and the shampoo in another. Ever wonder why?

The positive side of plastic bags

Grocery stores, shopping centers, dress boutiques, restaurants, and any other establishments would not care to be thrifty in using and giving out plastic bags because it costs no more than a cent, compared to paper grocery bags that cost four cents. It is so economical.

Plastic bags are produced too cheaply and massively that they have gotten the side of at least 80% of store owners. In addition, they are very easy to carry and store, they are light but strongreally a business-catcher.

More to its advantage, according to The Film and Bag Federation, plastic bags consume 40% less energy, 80% less solid waste, produce 70% fewer atmospheric emissions and release up to 94% fewer waterborne wastes compared to paper grocery bags.

Surely, production of plastic bags gains massive increase and manufacturers cannot ask for more to its success. However, seems like the other side of the coin is gaining popularity too. More individuals are now getting concerned how the earth is becoming a victim of the plastic bag success story.

The negative side of plastic bags

Economic vs. environmentthat is the debate. While production and consumption of plastic bags gives positive outlook for business, it is not so for mother earth. The success of plastic bags has resulted to an increase of amount of litter found floating in the waters or messing the streets where we live.

Plastic bags, after usage, usually clutter landfills as trash bags. They clog drainage. They contaminate the oceans. They poison sea animals. They are inhaled as toxins when burned. They simply pollute the ground, air and water.

Now that is the true cost of plastic bags, and looks like it is more than a cent. These are very alarming concerns that needs to be properly taken into action.

The solution

While it is yet impossible to stop the production of plastic bags, there is a way to help solve the issue. By recycling and reusing plastic bags, there can be less litter around. There are absolutely many ways to recycle and reuse these bags. Reuse them as trash can liners, food bags, plant covers, or bring them again for your next shopping. You can also be creative and recycle them as sling bags or clutches, raincoats, place mats or kites for your kiddo.

Whereas there may be good and bad side of producing and using plastic bags and the debate continues, but as long as we do our part in maintaining a cleaner environment, I guess it is a tiebreak.

Healthy Benefits Drink Your Own Home Brew Beer

Beer is the new health drink? Binge drinking aside, in moderation beer actually has healthful effects. Studies reported below illustrate many benefits from consuming beer. Home brewed beer is even better than commercial beer because it has no artificial colors, additives, preservatives or flavors.

Benefits

Here are only a few of the ways that home brewed beer is good for you:

-The University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center discovered (in May, 1999) that moderate beer drinking reduces the chances of getting coronary heart disease by over 30%. Impressive!

-“The New England Journal of Medicine” found (in November, 1999) that moderate beer drinkers decrease the chances of suffering a stroke by 20%.

-The TNO Nutrition and Food Research Institute discovered that homebrewed beer contains vitamin B6, which prevents the accumulation of the amino acid homocysteine (reputed to cause vascular and heart disease). Beer improves vitamin B6 absorption into the blood plasma by 30%.

-Home brewed beer is a stress reliever. Try a quick experiment, if you have any doubt. Even the process of making beer is relaxing.

Equipment

If the above information has whetted your appetite, let’s next consider a typical MYTH: that it is prohibitively expensive to make your own beer. No way!

Forget those huge expensive vats that you have no doubt seen. Basically you only need 2 pieces of equipment: a small fermenter (to store the beer during the fermentation process) and a hydrometer (to know exactly when the beer has finished fermenting). That’s all for equipment.

The final thing you’ll need are consumable ingredients: a can of malt and hops mixture, and some brewing yeast. You can select from lots of basic flavors and styles, also you can customize your own brews with many additional ingredients for your own secret recipes.

It’s very simple to brew your own beer at home. Place a container of malt mix into the fermenter, add water, add yeast, and seal. A few days later use the hydrometer to know precisely when it is finished and ready to drink. Place it into bottles and get ready for your friends to be amazed at your new skill.

It’s simple to get started with home brewing kits readily available online. And it’s cheap — your beer only costs around $5 a GALLON!

Conclusion

Now you have even more reasons to start making your own delicious beer at home. It’s better and cheaper than store-bought beer, plus it’s better for you. So you can drink (responsibly) guilt-free.

Pre-Order Asus 31.5″ 4K IGZO Monitor for $3500

Asus is reportedly now taking pre-orders for its 31.5 inch monitor (PQ321Q) featuring Sharp’s anti-glare LED-backlit IGZO technology. It sports a screen resolution of 3840 x 2160, 140 pixels per inch, and not only cuts down on energy consumption but features an extremely long durability given that Sharp’s tech doesn’t constantly refresh the images. It’s all static until something moves on-screen.

The company introduced the new monitor last month, reporting that Sharp’s IGZO tech supports smaller transistors than amorphous silicon thanks to significantly higher electron mobility. It also not only reduces energy consumption, but reduces the monitor’s overall bulk as well: at 35 mm at its thickest point, the PQ321 is the thinnest 4K UHD monitor available today, the company said.

A Sharp rep said during CES 2013 in January that the 31.5 inch panel will be marketed to professionals first given the end-price. The prototype also had ten-point touch input which apparently didn’t make it into the company’s own PN-K321 31.5 inch IGZO monitor selling for $5,000 USD. The Asus model also doesn’t support touch.

The upcoming PQ321Q supports wide 176° horizontal and vertical viewing angles, 10 bit RGB “deep” color, and an 8 millisecond gray-to-gray response time. Other features include a 0.182 mm pixel pitch, a max brightness of 350 cd/m2, a max contrast ratio of 800:1, picture-by-picture support and HDCP support. The monitor’s typical power consumption is 93 watts.

On the connectivity front, the I/O panel has two HDMI ports, a DisplayPort, and an RS-232C port for old-school VGA connections. There’s also a 3.5 mm mini-jack for PC audio input, a 3.5 mm mini-jack for AV audio input, and a 3.5 mm mini-jack for earphones (for HDMI and DisplayPort).

Last month the company said that the new display is the “equivalent to four Full HD displays stacked side-by-side.” It can now be pre-ordered on Amazon here, and on Newegg here, both requesting $3,499.99 USD. The monitor is slated to arrive on July 16, 2013.
