Signal’s packing for Canada and he’s bringing…

first_imgA country souvenir for Canada! Canada has many wonders: diverse landscapes, rich history, and abundance of adventures. Plus, plenty of geocaches near and far to show you every corner of this beautiful country—and now, Canada has the added bonus of being the latest addition to the geocaching country souvenir collection! If you’ve already found a geocache in Canada, you’ll automatically receive the souvenir on your profile over the next few days. Souvenirs that are currently available can be found here. You can view which ones you’ve already earned by checking out your Souvenirs on Geocaching.com.Don’t forget to attend any event this weekend July 1 or 2, 2017, to earn the Where’s Signal? Canada Day 2017 souvenir, too!In celebration of Canada’s souvenir, we’re featuring the northern, southern, eastern, and western-most geocaches you can find in the land of the maple leaf. Northernmost geocache: Williams Island in Nunavut (GC60BX6)As the cache details page explains, “Taking a boat out in the summer, or hiking out over the ice in the early spring are the recommended ways to reach Williams Island (although helicopter rides in the early summer are possible too!).” This cache definitely earns its T5 rating for its remote location! Perhaps that’s why the FTF is still up for grabs…any takers?!Southernmost geocache: Spitting South – No Offence, Eh? In Ontario Canada (GC4T9GJ)Extending into Lake Erie from Ontario is Point Pelee, the southernmost point of Canada. Visit this EarthCache and you can learn how sand spits are formed, view migrating birds, and explore over 750 native plant species.Easternmost geocache: NL – Tip of the Tip EC in Newfoundland/Labrador (GC4G4A5)Located on the Avalon Peninsula, this EarthCache is the easternmost point in Canada. While you’re here, be sure to visit the Cape Spear Lighthouse cache (GCEE24) and Extreme East (GCWJZ3) to make it a trifecta of eastern Canada caching!Westernmost geocache: Beaver Creek Rendezvous – Alaska Hwy Mile, Yukon Territory (GC2DPC4) Beaver Creek is the most westerly community in Canada and about a 25 minute drive to the US/Canada border by way of the Alaska Highway. Although this is called Beaver Creek, it’s not uncommon for geocachers to see brown bears nearby!Have you found a geocache in Canada?

A Visit to the Local Sawmill

first_imgBut instead of just sacrificing these beautiful pines to become pulp for tomorrow’s newsprint, perhaps we could harvest some of the better quality logs and use the lumber in the construction or finish of interior spaces. In so doing, the soul of these majestic pines could live on in EdgewaterHaus.Knotty pine boards for panelingSo in a moment of clairvoyance, the plan was hatched: the south-facing three-season room would be built to the same standards as the rest of the house, but it would be finished to resemble a classic Maine waterfront cottage with exposed timbers and knotty pine walls and ceilings. The pine lumber would come from these very trees on our lot, and I would somehow participate in “harvesting” them.Chris Briley, our architect, calculated what size and quantity of timbers and boards we would need.There used to be dozens of small sawmills in southern Maine, but few remain today. Hurd Lumber in tiny Acton, Maine (population 2,000), is one of the few surviving sawmills in the area. They readily agreed to do the milling for our pine logs.Nestled between the Maine and New Hampshipre borders, Acton a scenic 35-mile drive from EdgewaterHaus, with the roadway offering panoramic mountain and lake views. The route we travelled to get to Hurd Lumber even included a brief foray of a few hundred yards into the Granite State before returning to Maine soil and Hurd Lumber.Hurd Lumber has deep roots in Acton. Brothers Carl, Mark, and Frank are the third generation of the Hurd family to own and operate the sawmill. Mark Hurd’s wife is the office manager. Hurd Lumber specializes in milling pine and hemlock, but will do other woods upon request. The three brothers share management duties. All three also work on the production line operating the sawmill.At this sawmill, no products are wastedHere’s a video tour of the Hurd team milling our pine logs. There is no waste from the milling process. All the byproducts from the milling process are collected and sold: sawdust for animal bedding; bark for plant bedding; and log offcuts and remnants are cut into uniform sized chips and sold to paper mills.Our pine logs were milled, stickered and stored outside at Hurd Lumber for air drying. The lumber should be ready to use in a few months.Ayeah, she’ll be a mighty-fine lookin’ three-season room!The first article in this series was Kicking the Tires on a Passivhaus Project. Roger Normand’s construction blog is called EdgewaterHaus.

This is the 14th article in a series that will follow their project from planning through construction.]We all know that ground beef and steak come from butchering a cow, but not many people have been to a slaughterhouse. (I suspect many would become vegetarians if they did).Similarly, I know that lumber comes from milling trees, but I had never been to see how a sawmill processes logs into trees. I have been a woodworker and home remodeler for years. I get my lumber and plywood from the local lumberyard and have often wondered how a once-stately tree becomes a 2×4 stud or a 1×6 board. I thought it would be interesting to see how it’s done.As I explained in my last blog, we had to remove over 30 mature pine trees from our lot to make way for building the home. I am a believer in sustainability: for every tree you cut today, plant another so that it will be available for future generations. Unfortunately, that one-for-one trade won’t be possible on our small lot.last_img read more

Mulayam continues his balancing act

first_imgIn the battle of ego between his son and younger brother, whose side is Mulayam Singh on? That question continued to intrigue followers and observers alike on Tuesday as the Samajwadi Party (SP) patron first surprised everyone by turning up at the office of Shivpal Singh Yadav’s new party, the Pragatisheel Samajwadi Party (Lohia), before balancing it with a visit to the SP office.Morale boosterMr. Shivpal received a morale booster as his elder brother paid him a visit at the 6, Lal Bahadur Shastri Road office. Soon after, the younger Yadav, made an informal offer to declare Mulayam Singh as the national president of his outfit that he formed after differences with his nephew Akhilesh Yadav, president of the SP.While Mr. Mulayam Singh did not give a clear reply to the proposal, he did not decline it either. At the small gathering, he accepted the flag of the new party and a huge garland.This emboldened Mr. Shivpal to announce that a formal decision would be taken soon in a national convention of his new party. Later Mr. Mulayam provided relief to his son, turning up at the SP office where he addressed party workers and leaders on the birth anniversary of social reformer Acharya Narendra Dev.last_img read more

Star Wars Resistance Episode 16 The New Trooper creates First Order chaos

first_img 23 reasons Star Wars is better than Star Trek Commander Pyre is throwing his weight around on the Colossus. Lucasfilm Knocking out the bully leads to trouble… and opportunity.The 16th episode of CGI animated series Star Wars Resistance sees the First Order continuing its totalitarian tactics on the Colossus refueling platform.After lone Stormtrooper CS-515 (Steve Blum) gives fugitive children/First Order victims Eila (Nikki SooHoo) and Kel (Anthony Del Rio) a hard time, a brief tussle leaves him unconscious. The kids rush to Resistance spy Kazuda Xiono (aka Kaz, played by Christopher Sean) for help.Kaz ends up donning 515’s armor and takes the opportunity to learn more about the First Order’s plans for the platform.spoilers-starwarsThe First Order basically refuses to leaveCaptain Doza (Jason Hightower) confronts the First Order’s Commander Pyre (Liam McIntyre) about its continued presence on the platform after the escape of the pirate spy it came to find, but Pyre claims he intends to hunt down the spy’s accomplice and feigns deference to Doza’s authority (but later kicks him out of his own office).It’s pretty obvious that Doza doesn’t believe him… but when will he take action? The citizens of the Colossus are getting sick of the First Order too, as evidenced by their protest.Also, we got a tease about Doza’s time with the Empire — he tells Pyre that his decision to leave was a “personal choice.”zro-ff-002195Stealing a Stormtrooper’s armor… where have we seen that before? Lucasfilm It’s coming in full force… and now we know its planKaz manages to infiltrate Pyre’s briefing and before getting found out learns that a full garrison is on its way. He escapes after Pyre orders “a full mental wipe and reprogram,” which sounds pretty dark.He also discovers (via a stolen data rod) that the First Order is preparing its fleet for war — we must be getting very close to the events of The Force Awakens — and reasons that it plans to use the Colossus as a refueling point. Now playing: Watch this: Tags 5:26 23 Photos Kaz has some excellent comedic moments too. He tells janitor Opeepit, who’s scrubbing the floors by hand, that he’d have an easier time if he had a floor sweeper… even though he knows the First Order seized it from him (what a jerk!). He also has a fun confrontation with a First Order BB unit, and waves to an unknowing Torra Doza (Myrna Velasco) as he passes her room in full Stormtrooper armor.Star Wars Resistance airs Sundays at 10 p.m. ET/PT on the Disney Channel, DisneyNOW and Disney Channel VOD, and you can check out the official episode guide.. Sean also chatted about this episode on the excellent Ion Cannon podcast — give it a listen! TV and Movies Culturecenter_img Post a comment Share your voice Tam’s getting a new perspectiveTam Ryvora (Suzie McGrath), Kaz’s fellow mechanic, was happy enough to see the First Order making the platform safer, but hearing Eila and Kel’s tale about the militant group wiping out their family gives her pause. She may yet see the truth about the group, and it’s likely she’ll end up joining the Resistance.zro-ff-002203Opeepit the janitor has a thankless role, and Kaz makes it even harder. Lucasfilm Neeku’s coming into his ownOverly literal mechanic Neeku Vozo (Josh Brener) is pretty great this episode, knocking out 515 several times.”Well, I didn’t want him to kill us, Kaz!” he says after hitting the trooper with a wrench.He also agrees with Tam that the First makes him feel safer, “in a threatened by the military kind of way” — sounds like the sentiment of a future Resistance member.
