A Wind Farm Approved By The Ministry Of The Environment In Norwich Township

Published by:

The proposed wind farm in Gunn’s Hill in Norwich Township has recently got its environmental approval which gives the project a go signal for their construction which could be set as early as July of this year.

Last April 9, the document containing the approval was sent by the Ministry of the Environment and Climate Change to Prowind Canada – the company that handles the wind farm project. Prowind Canada may begin the process of construction as soon as the time limit for appeal is reached in 15 days.

Juan Anderson, the vice-president of Prowind revealed that their next step would be to wait until the appeal period is over. He also said that the company is prepared in case an appeal comes their way but the company is sure they have followed every step necessary to get the approval of the ministry. He even went on to describe the process as thorough.

The project in Gunn’s Hill was announced last February 2010 and the public were aware of the project intended to be used as a source of renewable energy.

According to Anderson, the company is excited and have been waiting for the approval.

The approval document was lengthy and has 22 pages which contain the conditions set by the ministry. These conditions include monitoring of the natural heritage of the species in the area of construction such as bats and birds, rules for proper water management, noise emissions and the founding of the liaison committee for the community. The entirety of the said document may be viewed at www.ebr.gov.on.ca

After the appeal period is over and no appeals came through, Prowind’s next step is to get permits to start construction from the Township of Norwich. Roads going to the location of the turbines and entrances in the building will be the first project to be built. The proposed wind farm will contain 10 turbines that could generate 18 megawatt. These turbines will be placed in the Middletown Line within Norwich Township which will be covered from Highway 59 to Oriel Line.

Anderson revealed that before the season of fall ends, the turbine may have already been erected.

Bubble Wrap: How To Use The Right Way

Published by:

One of the most useful packaging products available online at Paper Mart is the bubble wrap. It protects fragile objects and serves as cushioning material during shipping or transport. Though there are no instructions included upon purchasing bubble wrap at Paper Mart, there are methods you could follow in order to maximize the protection of the wrap.

– The first question most users ask before wrapping items is how to position the bubbles, inside or outside? It is recommended by many that the bubbles should be facing inward. This way, the bubbles will be able to make sure the item stays in place while it acts as a cushion around the item to protect it from any impact.

– Recipients might sometimes find their items wrapped with bubbles have little dots stuck on the area where the bubbles touched the object. This is a part of the bubble and usually sticks when exposed to heat or direct sunlight. This should not be a cause for concern since the remaining material can be easily wiped away with a damp cloth. If you want to avoid it at all, wrap the item with paper before covering it with bubble wrap from Paper Mart.

– After wrapping your items, make sure all open edges and sides are secured with tape. This is mostly skipped by most and only adds the tape on the overlapping side of the wrapper. It should also be closed around the bottom and the top to avoid the item from slipping out.

– If you are shipping flat items then there are envelopes padded inside which is suitable as protection. What’s more is that it can be reused again especially if the items are light weight ones.

– If you are wrapping an item for storage, make sure to out a label outside the bubble wrap. You might be looking for something later on and you will have to take out the entire wrap if you have no idea what is wrapped inside. A label could speed up the process.

– After making sure every item is wrapped with bubble wrap individually, add other cushioning materials such as newspaper to add protection to the items.

Professional Body Painters To Gather To Learn New Techniques And Skills

Published by:

In Adelaide this week, professional body painters will be gathering to learn new, modern techniques and styles in the world of body painting.

The painting industry is very susceptible to change. Every year, many techniques and styles are invented and in order to be successful in this industry, one must be kept up to date with all the latest trends.

The convention will be held in conjunction with the Australian Body Art Awards and it will bring together many instructors from the different parts of the world.

Maria Mormile, an organizer of the convention, said that 20 painters, Australian and foreign, were giving lectures and classes to more than 40 participants. Local painters have been highly featured in students and teachers alike.

Referring to the painting industry in Adelaide, Mormile described it as ‘quite big.’

She said that they have some of the best painters in Adelaide including multimedia artist, Emma Hack.

The professional body painting industry has been growing over the past years and the standard is very high especially for Australians. Many people would like to have their bodies painted for fancy dresses, cosplay, gigs and sometimes for personal reasons. Right now, one of the fastest growing trends in body painting is painting on a pregnant woman’s belly.

Of course, like any other vocation, body painting also has its own challenges. For Ms. Mormile who has been a body painter for eight years now, she has never encountered a job that is more challenging than painting a man for the World Naked Bike Ride.

There was a time when she had been hired a by a rider who had received a commercial sponsorship to join that event and he wanted to paint the uniform and logo in his body.

She said that there many people who are worried about that kind of work but since Ms. Mormile was remedial massage therapist, she was a bit desensitized to nudity.

But when it came down to working on the man’s sensitive parts, she would just give him the brush.

Another challenge is also the time it takes to finish a body painting during competitions.

Why Children In Today’s Generation Have Become Fashion Conscious

Published by:

Children today know what they want to wear. They are aware of the latest trends, celebrity styles and famous cartoon characters. Their choices are often influenced by what they watch on television.

It is not surprising for a kid who is an avid fan of My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic to request for my little pony pajamas.

According to industry analysts, the market for kids wear is the fastest growing in the ready-to-wear apparel and it is expected to maintain an average growth rate of 13% until 2016. Different factors will drive the growth from rising media exposure, high disposable income of parents, increasing fashion sense and brand consciousness among children.

There are many international brands in the market but local brands are also accepted by consumers because they provide an unmatched value proposition and they certainly adapt to local tastes. Contrary to what many people believe, the share of branded kids wear in the market has decreased considerably over the last few years. In India, the share of branded apparel remains at less than 10%.

New players have dominated the market because they offer a wide range of styles for cost effective prices. Their concentration is on high volumes and it is becoming a more popular option. Many of the designs focus on comfort and fit particularly those intended for children. In addition, many local and global companies are expanding their geographies in order to leverage of the growth of kids wear market.

Children have started to be fashion conscious. Parents are no longer the sole decision makers because even young children want to take part in shopping. Once the children are in school they are exposed to a wider range of media and they become aware of fashionable styles compared to the past generations. Children today know what they want to wear and how they would like themselves to be dressed.

The 7 to 12 age group is very fashion conscious and it is the only segment that has not been affected the economic slowdown. In fact, this segment is poised for growth.
