I Want to Paint My Kitchen Cabinets, Can I Use Spray Paint?

Yes you could, but it would be very difficult to get an even-looking coat on the cabinets without having a bunch mist onto the surrounding walls...your biggest problem will be the "fallout" from the spray paint that will settle onto the surrounding areas that you do not want to paint. Plus it will dry a lot quicker, so if paint does get in unwanted areas it will be a lot harder to clean up. It will work, it will hold up, but the hard part would be getting it to "look professional." You would have to do an extensive taping/plastic covering job for the walls and ceiling around them, at EXACTLY the point you want the paint to stop, not to mention cover your whole floor with plastic, because spray paint mist tends to drift and settle, even though the application of it works faster than with a brush. And getting the undersides would be even harder, and you would have to plasticize the counters too. I think, purely for the control aspect of it and in getting the edges correct, that you would be better off using a brush or roller.

1. Cat keeps dumping out her water bowl?

Go to the pet store ( Petsmart, Petco, etc ) and buy a DOG bowl. They make the kind that are bigger at the bottom (slant-sided) and can not tip over. Even my Labrador Retriever has a hard time trying to turn his over!! If you get the kind that's made out of stainless steel ( or what looks like S.S. ) that's the best kind for a cat's water. It wo not "harbor" germs / bacteria like plastic. OR......you can get a HEAVY CERAMIC ( straight-sided ) bowl for her water. These are hard to knock over, and are also less "friendly" to bacteria / germs. The bacteria / germs that plastic "harbors" on the rim of the bowl, is what sometimes causes "pimples" on a cat's chin. That's why plastic bowls are not good as water bowls. Hope this helps..........Good luck.

2. Is Alcohol Solvent safe for plastic?

It wo not hurt plastic, but probably wo not take the paint off well. To strip plastic models we usually soak them in the foaming type of Easy Off oven cleaner(use gloves, do this outside). You could also try Simple Green(friendlier) but it could take a few days. Scrub with old toothbrush to loosen stubborn areas. Good luck

3. anyone selling mermaid tails?

You mean a swimsuit that makes you look like a mermaid. Try a supply house for synchronized swimming. That's a big piece of plastic to cast, and a rare, almost custom request, so I do not know if a quality one will fit in your budget.

4. What is plastic welding and where can we get plastic welding?

Plastic welding is the joining of two polymer through melting or softening of the materials and pressing them together to achieve inter-molecular fusion.There are many types of plastic welding and many places to get plastic welding equipment and services. Here's just a few:Bielomatik - Hot Plate, Infrared, Hot Gas, Vibration, Laser, UltrasonicsBranson - Ultrasonics, Vibration (Linear and Orbital), Hot Plate, InfraredDrader - ExtrusionDukane - Ultrasonics, Vibration, Spin, Hot Plate, Heat Staking, LaserEmabond - InductionExtol - Infrastaking, Hot Plate, Spin, UltrasonicHerrmann - UltrasonicsLeister - Laser, ExtrusionRitmo - Resistance, Hot Plate, Extrusion, InductionSonitek - Heat Staking, UltrasonicsSonics & Materials - Ultrasonic, Vibration, Spin, Hot Plate, Heat StakingWegener - Hot Air, Extrusion, Hot PlateIf you need help deciding what type of plastic welding process to use, designing your part to be joined, or developing or troubleshooting a welding process, you may want to contract a consultant, such as EWI (the company that I work for). What is plastic welding and where can we get plastic welding?

5. Whats the dumbest/funniest thing you ever did trying to cook?

Am I the only one who doesn't like the idea of baby slings/wraps?The only people I know of who did not like their sling either had one that did not work for them or it was padded and too hot. Some slings may not fit your body type. I grew up with international family members, so I was commonly exposed to various family members carrying their kids in a sling (5 different kinds too!). It's up to you, of course, but do not complain about how hard it is to hold your baby for a long time. It was your choice not to have a sling.5. The Faces Behind Your Favorite Healthy FoodsAndy and Rachel Berliner, 66 and 60, co-founders, and daughter, Amy Berliner, 25, Sonoma County, CA Lightbulb moment: When Rachel was pregnant with Amy, she asked Andy to pitch in with the cooking. The Berliners had always eaten healthy, nutritious foods, so looking for a convenient option, Andy shopped in the freezer aisle of a natural food store. "Let's just say I was not impressed with what he brought home for dinner that night," Rachel says. "We realized there was a need for healthful, convenient foods that also taste delicious." What is in a name: After months of trying to dream up the perfect name, one night Amy's grandmother literally dreamt of "Amy's Kitchen." "Right away we knew it was perfect," Andy says, "since it was named after our daughter, who was the inspiration behind the business." Growing up "Amy": "It was not until I was about 12 that I realized how strange it was that I could go into any grocery store and read about my birth on the back of a package," Amy says. Today she works in sales and marketing for the brand, which intersects her passions for health, organic agriculture, sustainability, and delicious food, she says. "It's incredibly lucky that I am named after a company that I am so proud of for how much good it does in the world and that aligns so well with my own passions." Up next: What started as a small family business now employs about 1,700 people who produce more than 250 products, including soups, sauces, wraps, desserts, and entrees sold all over the world. Remarkably the Berliner's farmhouse in Petaluma remains much like it was 25 years ago. "We are still tasting everything regularly at our kitchen table-and it's the same table too!" says Rachel, adding that they plan to stick to the same strategy they've always followed: Listen to their consumers and intuition to create new products and ensure every product is made with the best ingredients and tastes fantastic.6. Boots vs. Wraps?? Which do you prefer?Normally, I like boots more. Wraps can be awesome, but only if put on correctly. It takes a lot of practice to get them right, and if you do not you could cause serious harm to the ligaments. For this reason, I tend to lean more towards boots. You just put them on and go: less room for error, and a lot more convenient. If done correctly, I prefer wraps, because I feel they are more supportive and offer more protection, especially for a baby in training that tends to knock their legs a lot. Hope this helps!7. Why are fast food places making Chicken Wraps all of a sudden?They think their serving healthier food this way, because it's chicken, but they still are not that healthy

How to Transfer LED Grains to Glass Or Plastic Substrate Is the Key to Micro LED Technology Replacin
How to Transfer LED Grains to Glass Or Plastic Substrate Is the Key to Micro LED Technology Replacin
According to the observation of DIGITIMES research, the micro display technologies that have been mass produced at present include HTPs TFT LCD based on crystal glass, DLP and LCOS based on silicon wafer and AMOLED on silicon. They were originally applied to projection technology. After several years of commercialization verification, AMOLED on silicon has been proved to be the most suitable for AR glasses and has been commercially available. However, due to the main disadvantages of OLED technology, such as luminous efficiency, operating temperature range and service life, inorganic micro LED will be the mainstream of micro display technology in the future in the long run.DIGITIMES research points out that as the generation of large-size TFT LCD panel enters the 10.5 generation line, and the generation of small and medium-sized TFT LCD and AMOLED panel also enters the 6 generation line, the traditional flat panel display technology and application gradually enter the mature stage. In the future, the development of display application will move towards the fields of wearable or virtual reality and augmented reality (VR / AR) Due to the factors such as panel fineness and power saving, the micro display technology based on wafer manufacturing process is more suitable for emerging applications.DIGITIMES research also pointed out that the technology of making micro LED array on silicon wafer (lattice width is 10 15 microns) has been mature, so the micro display using this technology is expected to be introduced into mass production in the near future, and is expected to be promoted to wearable applications such as smart watches in 2018-2019; However, to expand this technology to general flat panel display applications, mass transfer efficiency has become the biggest technical bottleneck. How to effectively transfer LED grains to glass or plastic substrates will become the key to whether micro LED technology can replace traditional flat display technology.

Plastic Recycling: Your Questions Answered
Plastic Recycling: Your Questions Answered
Firms responsible for a significant proportion of supermarket plastic packaging have signed a deal to reduce plastic pollution by 2025.More than 40 companies, including Procter & Gamble, Coca-Cola and Asda, have signed up with the government, trade associations and campaigners to form the UK Plastics Pact. The Pact says it's a once-in-a lifetime opportunity to rethink the way we use plastic and its impact on the environment. Recently, the government said it was considering banning plastic straws and cotton buds and this came hot on the heels of a proposal to make consumers pay a deposit on drinks bottles and cans.The increased motivation to curb plastic waste and boost recycling comes after the Blue Planet II series highlighted the threat of ocean pollution and showed footage of wildlife eating plastic.But as plastic continues to dominate our shopping aisles for now, we asked you to send in any questions you had about these latest proposals and plastic recycling.BBC Environment correspondent Matt McGrath answers Kathryn Baker's questionThe main way that plastic gets into the seas is via the world's major rivers. Research suggests that 95% of plastic is transported in this way. Eight of these rivers are found in Asia. The majority of the plastic in the oceans comes from China but other countries including Indonesia, the Philippines and Vietnam are also major polluters. However, consumer behaviour in developed countries including the UK, Europe and the US is also a major factor in pushing plastic into the world's waters. According to figures, US citizens produce around 120kg (264lbs) of plastic waste per person every year. The UK produces around 76kg (167lbs) of waste while in Sweden, it's around 18kg (40lbs). BBC Environment correspondent Matt McGrath answers Mark Bolt's questionA major step to expand the reduction of plastics beyond bud, straws and stirrers has been announced in the UK Plastics Pact.Apart from packaging, two of the biggest plastic problems are straws and ear buds. These are among the most widely used items that turn up on beaches around the UK. Plastic cotton buds are often flushed down toilets and are small enough to pass through water filter systems and end up being eaten by fish and other marine creatures. The scale of UK plastic straw use is staggering with a figure of eight-and-a-half billion thrown away each year. The government is consulting on these steps with a possible ban to be introduced next year. Campaigners say that these proposals by government are not enough, and many other products need to be phased out too including plastic film - the UK uses more than a million tonnes a year, most of which can't be recycled. Attempts to cut down on the use of plastic coffee cups in the UK by the introduction of a so-called "latte levy" fizzled out earlier this year. The government rejected the idea of a 25p charge on disposable cups, despite the considerable success of a 5p plastic bag charge introduced in England in 2015.BBC Environment correspondent Matt McGrath answers @DaveStock18's questionLast December, 193 countries committed to a UN plan to stop plastic waste entering the oceans. However, the commitment is not legally binding and doesn't have a timetable. And different countries have adopted different schemes. Around 40 have banned single-use plastic bags, with charges or outright prohibitions in place in China, Rwanda and many others including Bangladesh. Others including the UK are moving to ban plastic straws and cotton buds. Zero plastic waste shops are opening in many towns and cities while plastic-free aisles in stores was part of the 25-year plan for nature in the UK put forward by Prime Minister Theresa May.BBC Environment correspondent Matt McGrath answers David Carr's questionAny substantial action on an environmental problem like plastic pollution requires a number of key steps that take time. It needs a solid scientific base to determine the scale of the problem such as the landmark study in 2015 that showed the world the true scale of the plastic problem with around eight million tonnes entering the oceans every year. More importantly it also needs an informed and motivated public willing to change habits to deal with the problem. In that regard, the global impact of Blue Planet II can't be underestimated. Many governments including the UK, have moved relatively swiftly to consult on ways of curbing plastic use. Large global corporations have also indicated their willingness to reduce plastic over the past five years, but that tide has become a flood in the last year. MarianneYou will not need another recycling bin as the scheme will not operate through kerbside collections. In order to reclaim a deposit, customers will need to take their empty bottles to a collection point, which are likely to be located in shops and other public spaces. Some countries which already operate a similar deposit system have installed "reverse vending machines" to automate the process of reclaiming a deposit. Many of these machines are able to sort, crush and store used bottles.So-called "reverse-vending" has operated since 1984 in Sweden, where more than 90% of household waste is recycled.AnonymousYes, if people have discarded deposit bottles or cans without claiming the deposit, they are fair game for anyone to pick up.You will not need to prove you purchased the bottle in order to claim the deposit. In the times when there was a deposit on glass bottles in the UK, children often used to scoop up waste bottles to make a bit of pocket money. In some US states, the sight of hard-up "can men" or "can women" gathering cans and claiming the deposit is commonplace. Some pensioners in the German city of Berlin have taken to collecting plastic bottles to supplement their incomes. Arguably a high deposit fee would have the effect of maximising recycling, but also maximising the worth of discarded cans. While it is not yet known how high the deposit is expected to be in England, costs elsewhere range from 22p in Germany and 8p in Sweden.JaneThe scheme is only being introduced in England because waste policy is a devolved issue. For example, Wales was the first of the Nations to introduce a charge for plastic bags in shops in 2011. Northern Ireland followed suit in 2013, followed by Scotland in October 2014, and England in 2015. Scottish First Minister Nicola Sturgeon announced a similar deposit return scheme for Scotland in September 2017. MarkThe government is looking to devise a scheme that doesn't undermine local authority collections. But it's a tricky issue and, ultimately, the effects are uncertain at this stage.There has been some disruption to the recycling system since China resolved at the start of the year to ban imports of waste for recycling.JosephThere are more than 50 different types of plastics, making it more difficult to sort and reprocess than other materials. Nearly all types of plastics can be recycled, but the extent to which they are depends on factors such as whether the technology is available in the area you live.Many recycling collections in the UK have focused on key packaging types, for example plastic bottles, which are heavier than most other plastics and therefore relatively easy to sort. Often packaging can consist of more than one polymer type, which makes it more difficult to recycle. Problematic plastics include black plastic food trays, which are used by many supermarkets.They are generally not collected as sorting machines are not able to detect them - the carbon black makes them invisible.If they are collected, they are likely to be rejected at the sorting plant although companies are looking at new technology to get around this problem.Some companies now use yoghurt pots made out of polyethylene terephthalate - the same material that is used for plastic bottles, making them easily recyclable. But other yoghurt pots are made from polystyrene, which is not usually accepted in recycling schemes. Margarine tubs are often made from a wide range of polymers, which require technology not readily available in the UK - meaning it is often shipped abroad for recycling.Some district and borough councils collect plastic bags and film with their recycling, but they are not easy to sort mechanically meaning they are very costly to process.Paul MostynMany local authorities now allow residents to put plastic trays in their kerbside collection but recycling is managed locally, rather than by central government.What each council decides to recycle depends on the resources available. In Greater Manchester, the only plastic recycled is plastic bottles because they don't have the technology available to sort between different types.A bottle and a food tray, for example, can't be recycled together as they melt at different temperatures.Recycle for Greater Manchester, part of England's largest Waste Disposal Authority, says it focuses on plastic bottles as they are in demand by manufacturers that make new products, whereas there is low demand for plastics like yoghurt pots, margarine tubs and plastic trays.However, other areas, such as Surrey, are happy to take those items for recycling.According to the UK Household Plastics Collection Survey 2017, by Recoup - a UK organisation which recycles plastics, 76% of (298) local authorities in the UK collect plastic pots, tubs and trays.Only five local authorities out of 391 do not offer a collection service for plastic bottles, while 19% (75) collect plastic film and 9% (34) collect non-packaging plastics.To find out what you can recycle where you live, click here.L. HudsonPlastic bottles are the most commonly collected packaging type because they are easy to sort and can easily be recycled in the UK, where a far higher amount is used than in most countries because it is used as a milk container.Until recently, people were advised to remove lids from their plastic bottles because they were a different colour and could contaminate the bottle stream.However, many processors are now able to separate the lids from the bottles themselves.Check your local area. Peter HickmanYes, squeezable toothpaste tubes are difficult to recycle and it is unusual for councils to collect them as part of their collections schemes.This also applies to other squeezable tubes that contain products, like moisturising creams.However, the pump action toothpaste tubes are made from a different type of plastic and are easier to recycle.BenEven when plastics can be recycled, some people worry that doing so is even worse for the environment. Recycling paper and glass requires much less energy, so this is a concern more relevant to plastics.According to Prof Thomas Kinnaman, of Bucknell University in the US, recycling plastic uses roughly double the energy, labour and machinery necessary to put it in landfill.And all recycling has some environmental costs, including more trucks on the road. As modern incinerators produce less and less pollution, they could in theory become a more efficient option in the future.Governments are still encouraging recycling to reduce our need to extract ever more raw material from the environment.Moreover, leaving plastics in landfills can lead to greenhouses gases being released as they begin to break down. Karen LeeThe environmental pressure group Greenpeace sets out nine ways for people to reduce the amount of plastic they throw away.Their tips include: avoid packaged vegetables, carry a reusable cup and getting your milk delivered in glass bottles rather than buying plastics ones.Other tips include using Tupperware boxes instead of Clingfilm to keep food fresh and avoiding coffee capsules which cannot be recycled.

The holidays make for more parties, which bring us more drinks, which means extra plastic cups everywhere! What do you do when you have so many Solo cups? Make a big, beautiful spherical light, I say! This contemporary light is simply made from cups, a string of colourful Christmas lights, a drill, and a stapler. Make sure you rinse and dry your cups if you're upcycling, or else your light will be radiating leftover beer. Wait, you might like that. You will need:*The size of the drill bit may need to be bigger or smaller depending on the size of your Christmas light bulbs. I used a standard set of lights and this was the perfect drill bit size for me.Drill a hole in the center of the bottom of a cup. Poke a Christmas light through the bottom to make sure it's a good fit. You want it to poke through without it being too loose so they don't slip off. Continue drilling holes in the rest of the cups.Staple 2 cups side by side, making sure one of the cup's lip is just over the other cup's. Now staple another one next to the other, staggering the cup lips again. They should eventually stagger over, under, over, under, et cetera.You can make this as big as you like, but since I used massive cups, my lower level was just a crescent made of 8 cups. Start stapling on another level on top of, remembering to stagger the lips.Go all the way across, stapling the cups to the ones below and the ones to their sides.Keep going up and across until it starts turning into a ball. You'll start using less cups the higher you get.When you're happy with your spherical shape, turn it over and begin poking the Christmas light bulbs through the holes. They will stay firmly in place.It will look better if you don't put the same colour bulbs in side-by-side. Plug in your lights and enjoy the insanely beautiful glow. Better with your main lights off!
Illegal Plastic Waste Processing
Illegal Plastic Waste Processing
Illegal plastic waste processingIn the months following China's January 2018 banning of nearly all plastic waste imports, around 40 factories sprung up around Jenjoram to take up some of the business. Often hidden in the local palm oil plantations, 90 percent had no permits, as Malaysia suddenly became one of the world's biggest plastic importers. In many cases, existing Chinese waste processing businesses relocated to Jenjarom, attracted by its proximity to Port Klang - Malaysia's largest port and the entry point for most of its plastic imports - together with the cultural fit of the town's Chinese business population, and allegedly corruptible officials. Unrecyclable plastics should be sent to waste centres but Jenjarom's illegal operations simply burned them, releasing poisonous and carcinogenic fumes into the atmosphere, causing respiratory complaints and skin rashes among local people. Several local fish and prawn business lost all their stock, apparently due to toxic wastewater from the factories. When 33 of the plants were closed down, more than 17,000 tonnes of the waste was left behind as an unresolved problem for authorities. Most of the operations quickly reopened nearby.— — — — — —Waste Processing FacilitiesThe first municipal waste processing plant in Kazakhstan was opened in December 2007 in Almaty with support of local akimat. Vtorma-Ecology Plant covered 90% of the city's utilization of municipal solid waste (MSW). At that time Almaty accumulated about 600 tons of garbage per year. During 4.5-5 years, the company was to pay back $28 million investments and reach cost recovery by producing secondary materials - PET flex, plastic pellets, paper, ferrous and non-ferrous metals. But to the economic crisis the price of recyclables has fallen in 1,5-3 times, and the plant was not able to cover its costs and pay the loan, issued by "KazKom Bank". In October 2010 the plant was mothballed, criminal case of non-payment the wages was opened on Rustem Parmanbekov, director of the plant, and environmental prosecutor's office estimated the environmental damage in the amount of 7 million tenge. In September 2012 Agency for Construction, Housing and Utilities of RK has presented the Program of construction of 41 waste processing plants around Kazakhstan within 10-15 years. Particularly, the Agency plans to open 10 plants until 2015. As the Agency informs, the pilot projects will be launched in Aktobe, Atyrau, Karaganda, Abai, Saran, Shakhtinsk, Kostanay, Pavlodar, Taldykorgan, Taraz, Ust-Kamenogorsk, Kokshetau, etc. These efforts will allow developing specific mechanisms of solid waste management in Kazakhstan and providing investors with one more sphere for investments. First of the objects within the Program is Astana Waste Processing Plant, which was planned to open in October 2012 and cover all city needs in MSW utilization, with its productivity of 400,000 tons per year. The opening ceremony was held on December 24, 2012. This is the second waste processing plant in Kazakhstan after Almaty plant. The Astana plant was built on basis of Spanish technology. As regards to Almaty Plant, which is still not operating, the Agency claims that owners have to deal with their economic problems themselves. The Program also covers Shymkent city, which has a dramatic situation with spontaneously growing dump close to residential areas of the city. For residents of these neighborhoods proximity to the dump has turned into serious health problems. Due to constant acrid smoke and smell of burning people get such diseases as asthma, bronchitis etc. The plant in Shymkent was planned to be built in 2007: "Construction is scheduled to start next spring and finish by fall," - declared the subcontractor in January 2007. But the choice of the landfill and other issues took more time than planned. Only in December 2009 an investment agreement with Shymkent Akimat was signed and area for polygon and plant was defined. In Fall 2011 it was again announced that construction of the plant begins. Municipal budget allocated 430 million tenge for the necessary infrastructure needs. Until the end of the year builders acquired approximately 20 million tenge. But in April 2012, Akimat refused to continue funding the project. For the moment the project is still frozen. Operation of the plant is now under threat due to insufficient funds for restoration and permanent increase of the area of garbage dump. The Agency for Construction, Housing and Utilities of RK has also named the city of Pavlodar among the first cities, where the plants will be built until 2015. For the moment, Pavlodar Akimat has announced that they have already chosen the place of 100 hectares for the construction of polygon. Work is expected to deploy on the existing city dump. Another plant is planned to be constructed in Karaganda. By today, "Taza Dala" company was founded to manage this project, places for construction and polygon have been chosen. Now there are negotiations being held with several banks to participate in the project. Finally, in December 2012 it was announced that the modern MSW processing plant will be built in Aktau with support of EBRD: 2.4 billion tenge (€12.7 million equivalent) loan to State Communal Enterprise Koktem, Aktau's waste management company, will co-finance the new integrated mechanical-biological treatment facility and a new sanitary landfill. The project will be co-financed by the Clean Technology Fund which is providing an US$8 million loan. The project will also be supported by a capital grant from the state budget. The Korean Donor Fund provided nearly €300,000 and the EBRDShareholder Special Fund is providing grants of nearly €800,000 for project management, design, engineering, training, operational improvements and other associated spending.

How to Make a Vase Using a Plastic Bottle - 10 Steps
How To Make A Vase Using A Plastic Bottle - 10 stepsThe international logo for recycling has 3 arrows, each one pointing back at each other. The three arrows stand for the 3 "R"s - Reduce, Reuse, Recycle. The importance of this cannot be underestimated, but it can sometimes feel oppressive. It is often much easier to throw things away. However, here at oneHOWTO we are going to show you a way to reuse waste material which is fun, practical and, in it's own way, beautiful. We will provide a step-by-step guide on how to make a vase using a plastic bottle with a picture for each step so you know exactly what you are doing. Used from every-day-use plastic bottles, this vase is great if you just want to have them round the home, but can also be a cheap and effective way to decorate for a big party or reception. There is not really a limit on the size of the bottle you wish to use. However, there is one important element. It needs to have a section with straight sides and this section should be around a third of the size of the total bottle. If the sides are not straight, then you wo not be able to fold them over very easily. Wash the bottle before you start to make your vase using a plastic bottle. You will need to mark and cut this part in the middle of the bottle with smooth sides. It should be about 3¼"/8 cm above the grooved edge on the bottom. We need to cut strips down these straight smooth sides. They will need to be spaced evenly around the edge to get best results. To do this, you can mark the sections using a ruler. Cut out larger sections which you can divide afterwards rather than trying to cut individual strips all the way around. In the picture below you will see we have cut out a wide strip which is the width of 4 individual strips. To fan out the strips for our plastic bottle vase properly, turn it upside down and press it against a flat surface. The individual strips will fan out to make a circle. Fold the strips back so that they touch the side of the bottle and create a definite fold. Now we need to weave the strips from our plastic bottle to make the edge of the vase. Take the first strip and fold it over the next 2 strips, but fold it under the 3rd. In this way, we will be able to tuck the strips into each other. Once it is in the right position, press down the fold tightly so that it remains in place. Continue this process by folding down the next one in the same direction, folding it over the next 2 and tucking it under the 3rd. Again, press down to keep it in position. Continue this process of folding, tucking and pressing until all of the strips are closed over. It is important that the angle at which you fold all the strips is the same so that you can get a uniform patter for your plastic bottle vase. Finish by once again pressing down on all of the folds so that they are as secure as possible. And there you have it; a cheap, durable and pretty vase which works just as well for flowers in your living room as it does as a disposable decoration for a party.— — — — — —would clay stick to a plastic bottle ?Clay definitely will not stick.

It is used for cycle helmets. Kevlar makes very strong fibres, it can be woven into ropes or sheets and it is used in bulletproof vests.

The rigid lenses require a larger incision in the eye to place them. Stitches may or may not have been required. They may even be marginally of higher optical quality, but they are certainly not lower. The vision should be present, and reasonably good, almost instantly. (subject to the performance ability of the rest of the eye). The surgeon will advise on the timing. What can not be determined for a while is the exact final refraction. I would tend to prefer six weeks before being sure that the new prescription is stable. Although most people are fine after four weeks, I've definitely had a few where surgeons have given the OK to refract, only to find two, three, weeks later their vision has slipped a bit. (and they are not that happy paying to replace two-week-old lenses, as a rule.) If the residual refractive error is quite large, and sufficiently troublesome, a temporary Rx may be worthwhile, but this should normally be done in the cheapest form available: no photochromic or varifocal lenses. The frame can be whatever desired: that can be re-used with the final Rx. Optometrist, retired.— — — — — —My dog ate hard plastic, it came out in his poop with blood, should i take him to the vet?
