The Power of a Train Horn

When I found Train Horns Unlimited the other day, I was surprised to actually come across a business with such a well designed website that sold such an esoteric, even archaic, hobby. Don't get me wrong when I say that I am surprised as I really shouldn't be surprised by the sorts of things that you can find on the web but it is often the most mundane of things that always manage to take my by surprise. Take train horns for example; what on earth can you do with a train horn? What's the purpose of them besides making loud noises?

That's when I realized. There is no other point to these train horns. That is exactly what they are for but what could I do with them, besides that? What sort of situations would require that I need to be able to make such loud blasts of noise? Living here in the middle of nowhere, Taylorsville, Kentucky, I have grown used to the idea that my neighbors will go out of their way to annoy me. Whether it's firing guns or playing music as loud as they can, it's like they thrive on being able to be louder than the next guy.

With that realization, I knew exactly what I needed to do. Buying their biggest and most loud of train horns (The Demon Horn, as it's called), I set out to make sure that none of my neighbors would ever be able to match the level of decibels that I'd be able to create with this bad you. You should have seen the look on their faces the first time I employed it to great effect - they had been shooting their guns. All. Day. Long. After one blast of this bad boy, it was enough to cause them to set their guns down after being scared so effectively!

Do You Want to Downgrade from Buggy IOS8?

Hey you think that the company that makes your phone and tablet would have it all together when it comes to an operating system upgrade. However, they make mistakes too. Otherwise, they would not have been releasing a beta version of the OS upgrade. I know they need to work out the kinks, but they are not paying me to endure hassles with something I pay a monthly fee to use. That is why after I upgraded to iOS8 I was going to to be able to go back to the prior version of the operating system that was on my phone.

OS upgrades can be buggy. Well, all operating systems have bugs. New ones can be a particular problem until patches fix those bugs. A beta version can render some of your apps inoperable, or it can make them have erratic performance. If you discover that to be the case after upgrading to iOS8, what do you do? Downgrading is the simple and quick answer. Or so I thought. I had no idea that there was really no way to easily downgrade back to a prior version of the operating system. I must have skipped or skimmed one of the text screens on the upgrade. I learned not to ever do that again. Maybe reading the fine print is useful.

There were two ways of fixing my phone. I could either get a new one, or I could downgrade the OS I had. The cellular provider would not let me have new one, so I found a way to go back to the prior version of the operating system that was on my phone. Granted, they are using exploits to iTunes and code to alter the phone to allow the downgrade. However, what do you do when you are really having problems with bugs that are present in iOS8? Probably not everyone has a problem with the bugs, but for how I use my phone and the apps I had installed it was particularly problematic for me.

Started My New Job This Week

I got this tip on the opening here from a friend of mine. He works with some accountants in Bristol and his company does the books for these people. Apparently they told him that they had a job opening and he immediately thought of me. It is a very good match for my skills as I did some very similar administrative work with the Royal Marine Corps while I was in the service and recuperating from a parachute jump that went badly. I went down there on my way to work one morning. In fact I just had to get out of bed about ten minutes early. It is literally that close to where I am living. I hopped on my bike and rode down there in roughly four minutes.

I was waiting when they came to unlock the doors and introduced myself to a fellow who turned out to the be the man who had founded the company. I did not know that. In fact he seemed as though he might be the custodian and was dressed rather like that. I thought he was just making idle conversation when he asked me if I knew anything about the business they were in, but I told him I had learned something about it in the Royal Marines. He got very excited and asked me what regiment I had served with. I casually told him that I had served with 43 Commando Fleet Protection Group. He asked me a question that you probably would not have known the answer to if you were not a member of the unit and I asked him when he had served. That was how I got the job. They had not even posted it and pretty much I could have said anything once he knew I had been a marine.

Reliable Dry Fillers for Production Line Packaging

Details about Monogram Speedee-Bilt F9F Panther Balsa & Plastic KitIf you have ever worked on a production line, you know that the packaging equipment can make or break your profit margin. If a packaging machine goes down, that is product not going out the door to the retail stores. Even machines that need extensive cleaning between shifts, or when product runs are changed, cause profit loss. Any time that the machines are not putting product into packages is lost money. That is why we were careful about what company we bought our dry fillers from.

Auger filling machines can be especially tricky. You want ones that are extremely reliable. Here at our packaging facility we fill a dry seed product into bags that is for human food grade snacks. We package different seeds, and we do not want to have to spend a lot of time cleaning machines between each product packaging run. The old machines took too long to clean to our high standards. The new dry fillers are easy to maintain and clean.

The next big thing we needed was precise weight filling of the packages. If you have a stated weight on a package, you had better be sure to have at least that much weight in the packages. When you are inspected, they check that stuff. If you sell a 16 ounce bag of seeds, you better not have 15.5 ounces in the package. It would be better to lean toward a little over than being underweight for inspection purposes and customer satisfaction.

However, if you have to always overfill by a higher amount because of the unreliability of your machines, that is tons of free product you are sending out the door every year. I don't know about you, but I cannot afford that. That is why I picked the most reliable dry fillers in the business for our packaging line.

Taking an Old Home and Making It New

Glass Shower Doors Glass Shower DoorsMy wife and I decided several years ago that we wanted to purchase a home, but we never got around to it until now. She was awarded a large settlement and she used a lot of it for a down payment. She was very adamant about buying an older home, even though this means that there will need to be a lot of work put into it and we plan to start right away. This is the main reason why I am going to hire someone who offers shower enclosures in long island. The one that is there now is very old and damaged. It has also sustained a lot of water damage over the years. I couldn't possibly imagine taking a shower in the place while looking at something that is old and beat down. While we want to save the integrity of the home, there is no way that we can leave this alone.

The main thing that concerns my wife is the fact that we are technically modernizing an older home. She believe that doing too much will make it lose character. While I do agree with that to an extent, I think the idea of combining old and new styles can work very well. Now all we have to figure out is where we would go to find the best contractor for the job. We need to find a place that is reliable, cost-effective and experienced. As long as they fit the bill perfectly, there should be no reason not to hire them. I do not know how long a project like this will take, but it would be good if we could actually move in within the next 4-5 weeks. That might be a bit unrealistic, but we think that this will be possible with the right help.

The Contractor Fixed My Roof

Roofing Contractor DoncasterI hate it when natural disatster come to my area. There was a really bad storm that came to the neighborhood, and it did a lot of damage to the homes in the area. Everyone was glad that they made it out of the storm safely, but they were devastated to see the damage their homes had faced. The roof of my home was damaged badly, and I had to call a roofing contractor in manhattan ny to fix it.

I know it's bad for us, but for all of the businesses in the Manhattan area that do a lot of construction and contracting work, they will be receiving a lot of business. There are a lot of people who want their homes fixed, and they will be calling these companies nonstop to have them come out and do repairs to the homes.

I had to do a little research to find a roofing contractor in my area, because I didn't want to get stuck with some fraudulent roofer who would give me a shoddy roof that would fall apart easily in the next storm, leaving me to call them again to get more repairs done. I've heard of some companies that actually have used this kind of scheme before, but they didn't last long. Enough people complained about them and they were shut down and sued for everything they were worth.

I found a contractor online to take care of my roof, and he did a good job. The roof is sturdier than it was before. I have no doubt that when the next storm comes by, if there is one, that my roof will be able to stand up to it. Now, I just hope the rest of my home can stand up to the storm. I don't need any broken windows.

  2. am taking a managerial economics class, and for the final we need to know the F statistic and its relationship to economics. I am not good at stats so if their are other statistical terms used in explaining the F statistic, if you could clarify them that would be great! thanks!

    Answer by Tony
    Gawd, this is a broad question, made particularly difficult because I don't know your background. I'll take a guess and do wot I can. Consider the "t" statistic. When you wish to compare two sample means or a sample mean against a poopulation, you compute a statistic (xbar - mu)/sd or subtract the sample mean from the population mean (or the two sample means from each other), divide by the standard deviation of the mean (usually s.d./sqrt(n)) and get a number. This number is a statistic which has a distribution. That distribution is described or defined as a "t" distribution, and is tabled in the back of most stat textbooks If the number is greater than some given number in the table, then "statistical significance" is claimed. If the s.d. is KNOWN, then the statistic is described or defined as a "z" or "standard normal" distribution, and you look up the number in the standard normal table. For many statistical tests, the procedure is the same. You compute some statistic, then compare the result to some theoretical distribution (t, z) to determine if the results you obtained are 'reasonable". Other such distributions are the Chi Square, exponential, binomial, Poisson, etc. Each are used in various cases depending upon the underlying distribution and statistic computed. From what you wrote, I surmise that you are using the F distribution for some purpose. The typical use of the F distribution is to compare the ratio of two variances--often used for the computational procedure "analysis of variance". Nuttin "special" about it. If you understand the "t-test", the exact same logic applies, but instead of looking up the number in a t table, you look it up on an F table. always, tony

  3. Compare ∆f and df f(x,y) = [e^x] –[y(e^y)] (a,b) = (0,1) ∆x = .3, ∆y = .01 The answer is ∆f = .2950836; df= .2456344, but how do you get this?

    Answer by MAGlCK
    f(a,b) = f(0,1) = (e^0) - (1 * (e^1)) = -1.71828183 f(a + ∆x, b + ∆y) = f(0.3,1.01) = (e^.3) - (1.01 * (e^1.01)) = -1.42319822 ∆f = f(0,1) - f(0.3,1.01) = (e^.3)-(1.01*(e^1.01)) - ((e^0)-(1*(e^1))) = 0.295083611 Sadly, I do not remember enough from multivariable calculus to determine what df could even stand for in this situation, i'm going to need some help or additional information to finish the second part of this problem. I'm guessing it has something to do with partial derivatives...

A Useful Link from a Friend

My friend always gives me random website links for no reason. Sometimes I call him the human spam bot, because he'll just send me an email with nothing but a link in it. Most of the time the links are just funny time wasters or short videos. Occasionally he'll send something like a news story, but he doesn't send these very often. One day he sent me a link to and I was very puzzled.

I didn't quite understand why he would send me a link to a satellite provider. He doesn't work for a provider, so he couldn't have been advertising for them. I couldn't figure out why he sent the link, so I just clicked it for myself. I think my friend sent me the link because he wanted me to see how low the prices for satellite tv are. I have normal television, and I always talk about how the prices for cable and satellite are too high, which is why I don't have them. The prices on the link that my friend sent me were lower than I expected. I didn't know if the prices had been lowered for some kind of new promotion or if they were the permanent prices, but I knew that I had to take advantage of them while I had the chance.

I contacted the satellite company and signed up for their service. As it turns out, the satellite prices were the permanent prices. Finally I can watch all of the channels on satellite without having to worry about high prices. I don't like to spend a lot of money on entertainment, but with this, I feel like I'm getting a good deal for an entertainment experience that can rival even a trip to the movies. There's so much to watch on satellite.
