As we go along 2019, I just decided recently to let go of my
previous experience in gardening and start afresh and anew. Instead of
cultivating them in my own backyard, I decided to buy plants instead. I am not
sure what is with my hand but I can’t properly grow a seed. Maybe it’s the
weather? But there are times where I ended up with 13 tomato plants and nothing
else. I have purchased other seeds but I am not successful with them. It is a
total hit or miss thing. Together with a group of friends, we decided to go on
garden shopping. I decided to tag along when I heard they were planning to go
on a shopping spree and when I see those beautiful plants, I decided to buy
A good friend of mine told me that she was able to grow a
pineapple sage and it was really yummy! On a second thought, I kind of think
that it tastes like a sweet pineapple. That’s why I decided to buy one. The
only herb that I could ever think of growing, is basil! That’s the only herb I
was able to take care of. I am so proud of myself that I think my basil is
better than my friend’s sage!
All in all, I had a good shot at growing my garden
beautifully just a few months after the new year. There were already several
harvests that I have already done and it totally surprised me when I was able
to grow egg plants. Which on my end and my worst thumb, it is difficult to do
so. My area also kind of put me in a situation where it is hard growing an
So I would say that if you want a garden, start by buying
plants instead of starting from growing seeds. Well, at least I did not end up
growing 13 tomato plants for the past few months but I am proud to say I was
able to grow plants with can grow beautifully in my garden.
In conclusion, I am glad that I bought plants. In other areas
of life, there are a lot of stuff that can still appear good given the correct
circumstances of the situation.
For example, there is the gasketed enclosures that different
companies manufactures. Especially the WA, WP, and WP enclosures. These cases
do not have molded gaskets on the flanges.
Does this mean that you cannot hung these enclosures? Of course not! Not
at all! There are companies that can offer you optional mounting flange kits
that can be easily attached or installed if you have an application that would
be needing a hanging electronics enclosure. You can attach the flange kits
externally on the electronics enclosure.
There are several options to choose from – there are also
varying colors of flange kits that are available. Both in dark or light gray,
whichever series you purchase make sure that the kits will match the color of
With today’s recent developments in technology, there is a revolution happening in lighting industry and it is being organized by consumers, retailers as well as manufacturers. The energy savings goal was now achieved for the standard light bulbs. It was implemented and sought by Congress in 2007. However, the tipping point has already happened. This scenario is not about the “rolled back” instituted and planned by the government as others may have argued.
The engineering colleagues in the energy efficiency advocacy community are making it to a point to make the Department of Energy (DOE) should roll back the proposal about energy savings that can rectify a significant error. This error is done by DOE in 2017 and the body would like the department to realign its regulatory actions with legal authority Congress has assigned to the DOE in general service lamps.
It is true that DOE should not prescribe any amended standards for energy conservation because it can increase the maximum allowable energy used. At the same time it can also decrease the minimum required efficiency for energy. However, this is not the case.
Then what is the real issue here? Let us clarify on this. The major problems lies within the rollback claim.
First, the claim solidifies what Department of Energy did last 2017. The body defined the general service lamps to include bulbs that are not general service lamps in nature. It is illegal. The body cannot just make a rollback from a place where Congress effectively stated that DOE does not have a legal right to do this on the first place. If this is the case otherwise, it can unconstitutionally subordinate Congress to federal agencies, in this case the Department of Energy.
Second, the energy savings that are reportedly being lost during the energy transfer are based on unreliable statistical data. The singular reliance of the report published by Lawrence Berkeley National Labs (LBNL), a branch of Department of Energy done in January 2017 was done on a bad faith. The data was not updated. Because the data used was directly related to domestic shipments that happened on different types of incandescent lamps and these were installed based on the lamps that use domestic light bulb sockets.
The number stated by the Lawrence Berkeley National Labs are believed to be exaggerated on unrealistic proportions and does not reflect actual numbers. LBNL failed to get the data showing the significant decline in shipments and installation of the incandescent lights of the past decade. This is because of the growing purchases for first compact fluorescent substitutes. This is now what we call the light-emitting diode (LED) substitutes for incandescent lamps.
