PLATES - SETWhen construction troubles in the suburban area behind, and finally, there is not just a roof over my head, and housing, regardless of how large or small, there is another problem — the improvement that is built.

Many do not consider this to be a problem, but just dumped here the old furniture that was unnecessary in a city apartment.

SHOWERFor water treatment there are many different devices. In Russia we have a traditional of them is bath, bathtub, shower. The people noticed that the bath treats, bath — relaxing, but invigorating shower. Besides, a shower is the most rapid form of bathing, which does not require any special preparations. In my view, it (the shower) and the most economical of these. Here I am, having a bath in the garden tub and in the house he decided to shower and use the tub as a sump. But the tub was already old, and on “family Council” decided that this version of us is not so necessary. Just need one soul, arranging him in the bath — in the corner of the boiler house extension to the house, where there was a gas boiler. It’s warm even in the bitter Siberian winter, besides eating and sanitation.

The preparatory work consisted of dismantling the old tub and the acquisition of missing materials. But I must say that both were not big problems and work.

Heat exchanger

Fig. 1. Solar water heater on the roofThe same heat that we feel from sunlight, can be used for household needs in the suburban area — for example, for heating water for shower, dishes or watering plants. A device of this solar heater is simple. Just need the roof set so-called heat exchanger coiled hose connected to the tank with water.

Immediately it should be noted that for water heating solar heat exchanger is suitable mainly in the spring, summer and early fall (the use of this design in a cold time requires expensive, quite complex, alterations).

The proposed solution is best used for suburban areas not connected to the mains and has a sloping roof (Fig.1). The basis of design — tubular plastic heat exchanger, Packed in a box with dimensions 2×1 m. Its own one-time capacity of approximately 20 liters. Naturally, this is not enough, so you must mount and connect the tank, which will refill the system with water as it is warming up and use.

BRAIN FOODGerman and Dutch scientists first discovered an alternate power source for the brain. Because previously it was thought that the brain runs exclusively on glucose. Using spectral analysis, scientists have discovered that the brain receives from the incoming blood not only glucose but also lactate — lactic acid, the increase in the content which is observed when the mismatch of oxygen into tissue and energy costs, that is, when active muscular work. Thus, the energy “waste” is supplied by the muscles, are used by brain as energy.

The study, neuroscientists showed that the brain, like muscles, in a situation when the body is working at the limit of their capabilities and the level of sugar in the blood decreases to a critical value, starts to feed on the lactate, not glucose. This discovery explained why the brain is able to work at the same level, even when other tissues and organs begin to consume several times more glucose and oxygen than usual. The brain is just another mechanism to maintain their own life in the conditions when working muscles need glucose.
