Be Prepared….How To Recharge (Single Use) Alkaline Batteries


knew this was kind of possible; as a kid we used to leave dead alkaline batteries out in the sunshine for a few hours, and this seemed to recharge them a little bit, so we could get a bit more use out of them… What I didn’t realize is that you can actually purchase specific battery chargers which are designed to recharge dead single use alkaline batteries. Now maybe everyone else knew this, but I certainly didn’t!

This means that once you have purchased a battery charger, such as the: Maximal Alkaline, RAM, Ni-MH, Ni-CD, AA, AAA, C, D, N, 9V BatteriesPower FC999 Universal Rapid Charger, you then effectively have free batteries for life. Our local authority recycles dead batteries, they pick them up with the garbage once a month. If I went out into the neighborhood that day, I could literally collect 1000s of free alkaline batteries which could then be recharged and reused. Even if your local authority doesn’t provide this service, you could still get all the free batteries you need, by asking friends and family to save their batteries for you. You could also ask local stores and commercial premises if they could save their batteries for you.

Just to note – the Maximal Power FC999 Universal Rapid Charger doesn’t just charge alkaline batteries, it also charges: RAM, Ni-MH, Ni-CD, AA, AAA, C, D, N, and 9V batteries, so it’s got you covered for everything. Additionally, you might also want to purchase a battery tester, to check batteries are dead and check how well they have recharged; this SE BT20 9-Volt Battery Tester costs just $3 (with free delivery).

Anyway, this might not be news to some of you, but hopefully it is useful information and saves some money for people that didn’t know. All our flashlights, remotes and radios etc take batteries; not to mention, if you have young kids, you get through a huge amount of batteries with all their toys and games. If nothing else, it is for more eco-friendly to reuse old batteries, rather than just throwing them in the trash…

Some of Obama’s investment…SCANDALS


1. RASER TECHNOLOGIES in 2010, which has fewer then 10 employees, was given $33 million to build a power plant. According to the Wall Street Journal the company FILED FOR BANKRUPTCY HEARING this year.
2. ECOtality in 2009 was given $126.2 million for the installation of 14,000 car chargers in 5 states. The company has since incurred more than $45 million in losses, and the company is under investigation for insider trading.
3. NEVADA GEOTHERMAL POWER was given $98.5 million in 2010. The New York Times reported in October that the company is in “financial turmoil,” and there was significant doubt the company’s ability to continue as a going concern.
4. FIRST SOLAR was given $3 billion for power plants in Arizona and California, and Business week reported their stocks fell to a record low after reporting $401 million restructuring costs, and had fired 30 percent of its workforce.
5. ABOUND SOLAR was given $400 million to build photo-voltaic panel factories. Forbes reports in February the company halted production and laid off 180 employees. In June of 2012, Abound went BANKRUPT.
6. BEACON POWER was given $43 million even though Standard and Poor’s had given the company a dismal outlook. Last fall the company received a delisting from NASDAQ and has FILED FOR BANKRUPTCY.
7. SUNPOWER was given $1.2 billion and as of January owed more then it was worth.
8. BRIGHT SOURCE was given $1.6 billion and then posted a string of net losses totaling $177 million.
9. SOLYNDRA, a solar panel manufacture, was given $535 million and since then has gone BANKRUPT.

NOW HERE IS WHAT IS MOST INTERESTING IN THIS ARTICLE BY THE LINCOLN JOURNAL STAR:
“Of all these grants and loans 71 percent of the money went to “individuals who were bundlers”,
members of Obama’s NATION FINANCE COMMITTEE, or large donors to the Democratic Party.”

BTW:
Tonopah Solar got $737 million (larger than Solyndra)
Tonopah Solar is run by Nancy Pelosi’s brother-in-law..

A look at life around you…..”In case I’m gone tomorrow”…


ONE day a woman’s husband died, and on that clear, cold morning, in the warmth of their bedroom, the wife was struck with the pain of learning that sometimes there isn’t “anymore”.

No more hugs, no more special moments to celebrate together, no more phone calls just to chat, no more “just one minute.”

Sometimes, what we care about the most gets all used up and goes away, never to return before we can say good-bye, say “I love you.”

So while we have it, it’s best we love it, care for it, fix it when it’s broken and heal it when it’s sick.

This is true for marriage…..And old cars… And children with bad report cards, and dogs with bad hips, and aging parents and grandparents. We keep them because they are worth it, because we are worth it.

Some things we keep — like a best friend who moved away or a sister-in-law after divorce. There are just some things that make us happy, no matter what.

Life is important, like people we know who are special. And so, we keep them close!

Suppose one morning you never wake up, do all your friends know how you really feel?

The important thing is to let every one of your friends know your true feelings, even if you think they don’t love you back.

So, just in case I’m gone tomorrow, please vote against that asshole, Obama.

Facebook court ruling: What you share on Facebook is admissible as evidence


Did you know that what you say on Facebook can be used against you in a court of law? If you’re sharing something with your friends, you may as well be sharing directly with the judge and jury: A recent ruling in a U.S. federal court says that if you post something on Facebook, your friend can share that information with the police — it’s not a violation of your privacy.
Accused gang member Melvin Colon had argued in court that investigators violated his constitutional right to privacy when they viewed his Facebook profile via one of his friends’ accounts. But US District Judge William Pauley III ruled that Colon’s messaged threats and posts about violent acts he committed were not private, and indeed fair game for prosecutors. To some extent, the ruling makes logical sense: When you say something publicly on Facebook, you’re often sharing a thought with hundreds, maybe even thousands of people. There’s not much that’s private about that.

Courts have settled a number of questions pertaining to Facebook and our legal system this year. Courts have ruled that it is improper to deliver a court summons via Facebook, even when it’s the best method of reaching someone. A court has also ruled that a Like on Facebook isn’t constitutionally protected free speech — something Facebook is vigorously appealing.
