I Use This All-Natural Cleaning Paste On My Shower Floor, Kitchen Sink, Counters, and My Hands

OK, here’s a pop quiz for you: what do your hands, an eggplant, the floor of your shower, and the Pyrex dish you baked lasagna in last night all have in common? That’s right, those are all things you can safely and effectively clean using Scour Cleaning Paste from Humble Suds. And you can add tile and grout, the oven, apples, your feet, plates and silverware, and, of course, the kitchen sink to that list. Humble Suds Scour All Natural Cleaning Paste In fact, just about the only thing you can’t clean with this stuff is untreated wood, as the natural oils will seep in and leave a stain. But how much unsealed wood do you really have around the home, anyway? Scour is so safe because it is made of things that are easy to pronounce and not frightening, things like sodium bicarbonate (AKA baking soda), castile soap (AKA hydrolyzed coconut, jojoba, and olive oils), vegetable glycerin (again, a plant-derived oil), and orange and lemongrass oils. In fact, that’s the entirety of the ingredients.

To provide electricity in Nigeria is not about technology, but about political will – Prof Ejiogu (2

In this interview with RAPHAEL EDE, a professor of Electrical Engineering at the University of Nigeria, Nsukka, Emenike Ejiogu, who led a team of researchers that developed a power system that turns solid waste into gas, explains  the hindrances to effective power supply in Nigeria How did your team strike a deal with the UNN? We came to the UNN and said we could produce cheap source of gas. Now, I asked if they could please get a gas engine and they said they had a diesel generator. We said okay, give us this generator and we would modify it to run on gas. Let me give you an example so that you can get a gist of the whole thing. The UNN spends nothing less than between N70m and N80m a month on electricity. Now, if for example there’s a power failure, there are critical parts of the university that must have power. These are run on diesel. Let’s take for example what we have done here. There is a 500KVA generator that powers the whole of the administrative building, the library and the

Verizon reveals the shutdown date for its 3G CDMA network

Today, Verizon put a date on its intention to shut down its aging 3G network: December 31st, 2022. It's not just the end of the extremely widespread 3G system, but a watershed moment for Verizon, since its network began on CDMA technology when the company was first formed in 2000. Greater reliance on the GSM-based LTE network, and finally pushing more customers towards 5G, has let the company wean itself off of the outdated standard. Verizon originally planned to shut down 3G operations at the end of 2019, but extended it to 2020 and beyond in order to transition as many of its customers off older smartphone and networking hardware. It hasn't allowed the certification or connection of new 3G-only devices since 2016 in preparation. According to industry analyst OpenSignal, Verizon's 4G network covers 97.7% of its total coverage area as of January 2021, so it's possible that a few of the most rural Verizon customers may lose service after the transition. Verizon says that

The Kogi State Government has expressed readiness to start administering the COVID-19 vaccine to residents

. Earlier, Governor Yahaya Bello insisted that he won’t allow his people to be used as “guinea pigs by vaccine manufacturers”. . But the State commissioner for Health, Saka Haruna, told journalists on Monday in a telephone interview that Kogi will receive doses of the vaccine on Tuesday ahead of the rollout. He also said the residents will be given “unhindered access to receive the vaccine”. . Kogi is the only state yet to start administering the Oxford/AstraZeneca vaccine to residents three weeks after Nigeria began its rollout. . The National Primary Health Care Development Agency had attributed the delay to two factors – the state’s “concerns around the contradictory information about the vaccines” and the non-repair of its cold-chain store. . When the vaccine doses arrived in Nigeria, Bello who had repeatedly denied the existence of COVID-19 in Kogi, said the vaccination is among their least concerns. . “COVID-19 is just a minute aspect of what we’re treating in Kogi state. I’m not

World Idli Day: Dip Your Fingers In India’s Fermented Food Richness

NEW DELHI — Fifty-one-year-old M. Eniyavan from Tamil Nadu in South India said he owes his life to idli, fermented and steamed rice-and-black-lentil cake, and one of the most popular breakfasts in the country. “I was born to a very poor family with nine siblings in Coimbatore (in Tamil Nadu),” Eniyavan told Zenger News. “My father, who used to do seasonal manual labor jobs, found it difficult to feed his huge family. I went to school till class VIII mainly to get a free midday meal.” Life had other plans for him, of course. After working as a seasonal fruit seller and at a tea shop, he started driving an auto-rickshaw and met Chandra one day. “She used to make idlis. I sold her idlis to a shop once. Eventually, she got me a contract for idlis with which I was able to go to Chennai,” said Eniyavan. He started his idli business in the city in 1997, and since then, there has been no looking back. Today, Eniyavan can make over 2,547 varieties of idli. He supplies the dish to caterers acros

Startup Says It Can “Charge” an Electric Car In Under Ten Minutes

It's using a clever trick to recharge electric cars almost instantly. Ample Time San Francisco-based startup Ample has launched an electric car charging network that can provide a car with a full charge in less than ten minutes, Business Insider reports. Ample got on its feet thanks to a partnership with Uber. It’s currently in charge of charging the ride-hailing app’s fleet of cars in San Francisco. And now, seemingly, it wants to revolutionize the infrastructure of electric vehicles. Like Lego Rather than charging existing batteries, the startup is betting on battery-swapping technologies, a system likened to “Lego blocks” by CEO Khaled Hassounah. The company’s concept is entirely modular, meaning that larger vehicles can fit more battery modules, while smaller vehicles only need to swap fewer. The system is also entirely autonomous with customers only interacting with a smartphone app. Battery Swap The overall goal is to eliminate “range anxiety,” meaning consumer hesitancy caus
