You can read their review at Homeguyd.

Here are the top benefits of using a corded electric lawn mower:

Constant supply of power

One of the best advantages of using a Corded Electric Lawn Mower is that since you use an electrical socket to provide it with power, you can be sure that it will receive a consistent power supply. This is not the case with a battery operated electric lawn mower since it is bound to get discharged while mowing and so, you will need to recharge it again before you can start mowing again. However, in a corded electric lawn mower, you don’t have to worry about the mower getting discharged and can mow your whole lawn in one go.

Lightweight and easily portable

Since a Corded Electric Lawn Mower doesn’t include a battery section, it is found to be much lighter and easy to carry around than a cordless electric lawn mower. You can easily move it around your lawn and it would be simple and easy to direct too. This will not only save a lot of effort from your side but will also help you in saving a lot of time.

More Powerful than a cordless option

Let’s face it, no matter how easy it will be to mow your large lawn with the help of a cordless electric lawn mower, it won’t offer the same power as a corded electric lawn mower which will result in increased time for mowing the lawn. You will need to mow the same area a couple of times to make sure that the area is properly mowed. In a corded electric lawn mower, you don’t have to mow the same area more than once since it provides you with enough power to take care of an area in just one swipe.

Budget-Friendly

Another great benefit of using a Corded Electric Lawn Mower is that since it doesn’t need batteries to operate, you don’t have the battery cost to add up to your lawn mower’s cost. In fact, a cordless electric lawn mower often costs double of a corded electric lawn mower. So, if you are looking for a budget-friendly option then a corded electric lawn mower is the best bet for you.

More Efficient at mowing

Since a corded electric lawn mower gets a constant supply of electricity and is more powerful than a cordless electric lawn mower, it ends up being more effective in mowing the lawn than a corded electric lawn mower. You can be sure that your lawn will be properly trimmed and mowed with the help of a corded electric lawn mower.

A lot of people in all age ranges suffer from acne which can cause your skin to get inflamed or become red and can cause a lot of pimples, blackheads, lesions, etc. on your skin.

Thankfully, there is an easy and natural way to get rid of this skin problem, you can use an all-natural neem oil to control your acne and other skin related problems.Neem Essential Oil

Since Neem oil contains antifungal and antibacterial properties, it is really effective in fighting off fungal infections and bacteria which causes acne and its moisturizing property ensures that your skin doesn’t become dry during this process. It is also used effectively in the kitchen but majorly used to treat the skin problems.

So, here are a few ways in which you can use Neem essential oil to treat your various skin problems:

1. Applying it directly

One of the best ways to treat skin problems is by applying Neem oil directly on the skin spot or mixing it with another essential oil like oregano oil, argan oil, or tea tree oil to fight off the bacterial infection and help your skin in healing.

You can apply the essential oil at night before you go to sleep or you can apply it once or twice a day directly to the spot. If applying the oils directly cause irritation, then you might need to dilute the essential oil with a carrier oil.

2. Applying it after dilution

A lot of people have sensitive skin which might not be suitable for a direct application of the Neem oil onto it so you need to dilute the oil with a carrier oil before you apply it on your skin. You can use any carrier oil like Jojoba oil, almond oil, olive oil, coconut oil, and so on.

Just add 6 drops of neem oil to 1 teaspoon of any carrier oil and apply this mixture on your acne spots, lesions, etc. You can also adjust the ratio depending on your required quantity.

3. Making a daytime moisturizer

Another great way to treat your skin problems is by creating a daytime moisturizer by adding neem essential oil in it. You can use aloe vera gel and neem essential oil to make your moisturizer. Make sure that you take just 1 teaspoon of the aloe vera gel and 6 drops of neem oil and mix them well together.

If you are using it as a nighttime moisturizer, then massage your skin with this mixture for a couple of minutes as this will help in removing toxins from your skin and will help your skin to heal.

4. Wash face with neem oil soap

One of the best ways to clean your face and disinfect your acne and other skin infections is by using a mild neem oil soap on your skin. Make sure that you don’t scrub your skin too hard and apply the neem oil soap gently to your face to cleanse the skin. Once you have washed your face with the soap, use cold water to rinse it off and then pat your face dry with the help of a dry towel.

Once you have washed your face with the soap, use cold water to rinse it off and then pat your face dry with the help of a dry towel.

For a newbie cook, even the simplest of recipes can be difficult. From peeling onions or garlic to chopping them it can all seem like a real chore and cooking a recipe doesn’t usually take 4 to 5 minutes, unlike the video.

Cooking is a skill and only with practice can you better your skills. So here are a few simple hacks that will change your life in the kitchen forever.

Peeling Garlic

One of the most tedious and time taking tasks I have had to do in the kitchen is peeling garlic. At times it’s annoying and you’d probably throw it in any way, isn’t it? Don’t do that just yet.  If you’re chopping them, smash it first with the flat side of the knife for easy peeling and if not, crush a whole garlic right from the center.

Throw the pieces into a mason jar and shake it as hard as possible for 25 seconds and voila, you can easily peel it off now.

Peeling Egg Skin

Like peeling garlic, peeling hard-boiled eggs is equally tough especially if that’s your idea of a quick and healthy early morning breakfast. There were times I’d end up breaking the egg in trying to peel it off right but not anymore.

It’s easier than you’d think. All you need to do is give it a bit of a crack, put it in a mason jar and shake it for 10-15 seconds. The shell breaks and frees the white. Wish you knew that earlier, don’t you?

Get The Yolk Out

Continuing on eggs, I guess for bakers a common problem is separating the yolk from the white. Well, it’s actually pretty easy. Get a clean plastic bottle and squeeze the bottle. Now position it over the yolk and let go.

Voila, the yolk slides into the bottle which you can then empty into any pan or dish. It’s simple science. The bottle acts as the suction. No more throwing away eggs anymore, right?

Get The Yolk Out

Cleaning A Pan

No, simply rinsing it over and over again or scrubbing it for hours won’t clean it. It only damages the non-stick coating turning the pans into a health hazard. To remove the grease stains or the burnt marks all you need to do is rub it with some salt.

Let it sit for 5-10 minutes and then use a dry cloth to get rid of the salt. Once done, rinse it with water and there, your pan’s as clean as you’d like.

Time To Make Lime Juice

Well, I could certainly use some lime juice and I’m sure you’d like a glass too but wait, are the lemons too hard to squeeze or even slice? Can’t find the squeezer? Just throw the lemons into the microwave for 15-20 seconds.

The heat pulls out all the juices making it easier to squeeze. Rolling it works fine too but isn’t as effective as the microwave trick.

Looking for an Aero Garden for yourself? Not sure what to look out for? Whenever you decide to buy a product for yourself, you need to consider several things to make sure that it is the right choice for you. There are a lot of factors and features one needs to look at before they buy a product. Same goes for an Aero Garden too. An Aero Garden is a method to grow plants indoors without using soil. So, whenever you are looking for an Aero Garden for yourself, you need to look at these 5 factors:

Number of plants it will grow

The first thing you need to consider is the number of plants your Aero Garden needs to grow at a time. If you want small herb gardens, then you can consider a small Aero Garden kit which allows you to grow one herb at a time but if you want a huge indoor garden which can grow many plants at a time, then you need to find an Aero Garden product which will offer you this feature.

Amount of product

The next thing to consider is the amount of yield an Aero Garden will provide you with. Many Aero Gardens will help your plants to grow quickly whereas other Aero Gardens will take a slower time to grow your plants. So, choose the one which will provide you with a higher yield in a short amount of time.

LED lights

The next feature to consider is the LED artificial lights which are included best AeroGarden kits. These lights provide your plants with the artificial light which simulates the sunlight and helps your plants in growing faster. You could also get these LED lights separately but one included in your kit will help you in saving money and will also come with many advanced features.

Timer functions

This is another thing to consider. You need to search for an Aero Garden which will do everything automatically and would require least the amount of manual work from you. This means that it should mist the plant roots at a fixed time and pump the nutrients and water supply. It should also turn on or off the LED lights so that your plant is provided with a proper amount of nutrients, water, and sunlight. This is only possible if your Aero Garden comes with some timer functionality.

Reusability

One of the most important things to consider when buying an Aero Garden is that you should be able to reuse its packaging and pods to grow more plants without the need to buy the whole kit again. This will allow you to grow your custom made plants without needing to spend any extra amount of money and you can grow more plants in your Aero Garden with ease. It would also be better if you go for an Aero Garden kit which is cheaper and won’t be a pain if you end up buying it again.e

Pollution is a reality that is very present in our environment, in several completely different forms. All these types of pollution do not have the same degree of destruction, but it is still important to recognize their presence. Here is a short list of some of the faces that can take pollution as well as some of its detrimental effects on the environment.

Let us remember, however, that pollution is the result of our choices as a consumer society. We condemn it, but we do not want to radically change our way of life. The real challenge is to achieve ecological versus economic equilibrium.

airpollution

Air Pollution: Air pollution is possibly the most common type of pollution. It is mainly caused by gasses and particles released into the atmosphere by automobiles, thermal power stations, other industries or by certain natural phenomena (volcanoes). Acid rain and smog (dense smoke over cities) are two of the results of air pollution and they cause heart problems and lung problems in all animals, not just in humans.

Soil pollution: Soil pollution is often industrial, that is, some companies do not always take the necessary precautions to avoid the leakage of toxic waste. Agriculture is also one of the causes of soil pollution. Consider only fertilizers, insecticides, pesticides.

Water Pollution: Water pollution is often directly linked to soil pollution. The rain quickly transports pesticides and other toxic substances, from dry land to seas and oceans. The eutrophication of lakes and rivers is one of the effects of this pollution. It causes, among other things, an increase in the presence of algae and a decrease in animal and plant biodiversity.

waterpollution

Radioactive pollution: This type of pollution is mainly caused by industries when generating electricity from a nuclear power plant. The waste that results from the process is radioactive and therefore very harmful to living beings: they emit dangerous particles that can cause tumors or even mutations …

Sound pollution: Noise pollution may not be as damaging as The previous ones, but it can still cause hearing problems, irritability, insomnia and even depression. However, it is difficult to determine the effects of this pollution on living beings other than humans.

Olfactory pollution: This pollution is rarely toxic, but remains unpleasant! We think here of the odors released by refineries, wastewater treatment plants, breeding.

Light pollution: Light pollution refers to the presence of abnormal or disturbing light, as well as the effect of this artificial lighting on the entire ecosystem. This subject is in fact slightly controversial because many deny that this is a true type of pollution.

As we have seen, all these types of pollution affect our environment, that is to say, they harm the well-being of the human being, but also the other species that surround us! Here are some links to sites offering information on these endangered species:

1. Extinction of species
2. Animals in danger of extinction
3. Animals in danger

A detective for the environment, I propose an investigation. You can make it in front of you or on the bus. Arm yourself with papers and a pen. In 15 minutes, observes the cars passing by. You know that most vehicles can accommodate five people. Write down on your paper how many occupants there are in each car. The results are striking!

Statistics

– On average, cars occupy an average of 1.07 passengers on journeys to and from work;
-In Europe, half the journeys are less than five kilometers;
-Transport accounts for 16% of the budget of a household;
-25% of air pollution is linked to transport, the largest emitter of greenhouse gasses in France;
-The emissions of cars cause air pollution that causes several respiratory, cardiovascular and neurological diseases as well as allergies.

Stress

 

One solution: carpooling!

The carpooling is the principle to carry out a common path with a non-professional driver (not a taxi or a bus) and one or more passengers. This practice has many advantages:

-Personnel: Significant personal savings (carpooling saves close to $ 2,250 each year), stress reduction;
– Reduced congestion and road accidents, reduced costs and requirements for road construction and repair, and reduced costs associated with air pollution.

Covoiturage

 

The future is clearly in carpooling. Several projects have been set up to encourage its practice: the creation of reserved lanes, free websites for announcements, a dynamic carpooling system with GPS, etc. The means are multiple and the benefits considerable. Talk it over!

For a week, keep the plastic waste of your family. Then lay them on the floor. How much does this waste plate? A few square meters? Imagine now if all the families of the Earth kept their plastics to cover the largest possible surface. How many square kilometers would this surface measure? One could practically create a seventh continent with. But it already exists. In the Pacific Ocean, there is a waste plate measuring about 2700 kilometers. Imagine an area three times the size of Quebec (about 4.5 million km²). The area, which is nearly 30 meters deep, contains about 3.5 million tons of waste, mostly plastic.

wasteboard

How is it possible?

Each year, out of 100 million tons of plastic produced each year, about 10% end up in the ocean. Of this percentage, 70% flow while the rest is allowed to rock by sea currents. From North America and Asia, this waste can drift for years to reach the seventh continent in the heart of the Pacific Ocean. The North Pacific Waste Plate was created because of different marine currents that meet. The current of the North Pacific, the current of California, the north equatorial current and the current Kuro Shivo converge in what is called an oceanic gyre. The currents collide, Creating oceanic eddies that take hostage as hostages. The waste remains caught in the eddies, forming this famous “plastic soup” or “vortex of garbage”.

particlesplastics
Are there any dangers for marine animals?

Plastics, made up of extremely toxic products such as DDT and PCB, take more than 500 years to decompose. They accumulate and, over time, disintegrate and transform into small particles, forming a sort of floating sand. What should we think of this harmful sand which, for hungry marine animals, resembles strangely their food? Fish and seabirds accumulate plastic particles in their stomachs that are impossible to digest. More than 267 marine species are victims of the questionable matter of the seventh continent. And, food chain compels, this problem will touch us one day.

Soil conditions are currently experiencing problems. And I’m not referring to your neighbor’s yellowed grass! Soil degradation involves soil depletion in water and minerals. Have you ever heard of erosion or desertification? These are the possible consequences of soil degradation.
The soil is mainly used in the agricultural sector. Luckily, the techniques in agriculture have changed a lot. It was time because the old practices of intensive agriculture have destroyed the soil for decades! Indeed, many farmers exploited soils until their productivity began to decline. Obviously, all minerals and soil water were drained. Nevertheless, as productivity declined (usually after 5-6 years of intensive farming), farmers continued by reproducing the same destructive pattern of other lands. They abandoned completely siphoned fields, fields that took decades to regenerate to drain new ones.

The ground is tired of Pollution

Today, fortunately, Science has led to the development of new efficient and eco- responsible practices to protect soil. Here are the means proposed:

  • The green manure (legume or grass-legume mixture) improve soil fertility and protect it from erosion and frost;
  • The natural windbreaks (rows of trees and / or shrubs) protect the soil from erosion by slowing the wind speed;
  • The crop rotation (succession of different cultures) in the same field improves the fertility of the soil, reduces the use of pesticides and prevents erosion and the cycle of diseases;
  • The riparian zones (grasses and shrubs that separate streams of fields) prevent erosion of riverbanks , help keep the minerals and protect waterways from contamination;
  • The technique of direct seeding and reduced labor (less aggressive seeding of the soil) protects the soil from erosion and promotes infiltration.

There are several ways to protect soil in agriculture. For more information, please consult Agri-Réseau’s Good Agri- Environmental Practices guide. There are also the MAPAQ (Quebec Department of Agriculture, Fisheries, and Food) and Agri-Réseau sites that provide relevant information and solutions to farmers. Do not hesitate to visit their website! The only problem with the new agricultural practices is that it is not enough to develop them, it is also necessary that the people of the middle apply them! So, for sustainable agriculture, talk about it!
