Avoid a good scare at home by leaving loose batteries in drawers

first_imgThe batteries, for example, are a great unknown when putting them in a garbage can or other. Disposing them in a container or another correctly is very important since even if you do not know, if it is not done well it can be a danger. If a metal comes into contact with the positive and negative poles of a battery, a short circuit can be generated that produces a heat level to cause a fire. This situation, even if it causes us a little fear, can make us think that this would never happen in our home … All because we are really not aware of the large number of metal objects we have at home. Keys, chargers, coins and even aluminum foil are objects that contain metal and can be a threat if we put them together with a battery.The most dangerous batteries are 9VAccording to experts, the most dangerous batteries are 9 volts. That is, those that have a rectangular shape, since their poles are located next to each other, but even the best known as AAA batteries and AA batteries can be a risk.The solution to prevent a battery from generating a fire may seem to be keeping all the batteries in one place and away from metal objects. Also, one of the best ways is to store them in their own container or cover the poles with some insulating tape, since the contact between them can also end up in a short circuit.

There are products that are easy to recycle such as cardboard or plastic bottles, but there are others that we really don’t know where we have to place them to recycle them properly.center_img Common batteries can generate fires in contact with metalIt is better to store spent batteries in their own containerslast_img read more

Atalanta has hit Champions

Proof of this are the strong bets of forward clubs like Lukaku or Cristiano Ronaldo and also the latest participation in Champions, in which both the Rome Like the turinese They have exhibited offensive muscle. And this season, Atalanta has not wanted to be left behind.Why Gian Piero Gasperini has made his team a goal-scoring machine, to the extent that Atalanta is today the third most scoring team in Europe and the fourth with the best half scorer.

(AP Photo/Jim Mone)MINNEAPOLIS — James Harden was Josh Okogie’s responsibility for much of Wednesday night. Even though Harden piled up 42 points, Okogie’s teammates were full of praise for the Nigerian rookie.“It wasn’t a good 42,” Karl-Anthony Towns said. “It wasn’t a 42 that he’s been getting recently, you know. He had to work for it.”ADVERTISEMENT “You could feel the whole game there wasn’t enough enthusiasm, not enough want,” Rockets coach Mike D’Antoni said. “When we do that, we struggle because we’re not physical like the other teams.”TYING WILT’S RECORDHarden shot 15 of 34 from the field, including 8 of 22 from 3-point range.

BANNED! Galatasaray chucked out of Europe by Court of Arbitration for Sport

first_img The Turkish side now face a season without European football Turkish giants Galatasaray will serve a season-long ban from all forms of European competition after the club lost an appeal at the Court of Arbitration for Sport.UEFA had originally told the Istanbul club in March that they would be prohibited from competing in both the Champions League and the Europa League for one season if they qualified.Former Arsenal striker Lukas Podolski helped to secure a Turkish Cup victory in May, which would have normally allowed the club to compete in the Europa League. This led to Galatasaray appealing the sanction handed down to them.However, the CAS upheld the decision made by European football’s governing body and released a statement on Thursday afternoon.This is the second time in three seasons the 20-time Turkish champions have broken FFP regulations, and they have become the third Turkish side to serve a European ban for financial indiscretions after Bursaspor and Besiktas. 1last_img read more

FRANCOIS INVESTIGATION: GAA LEGEND TOMMY RYAN SOLD ETIC INVESTMENTS, COURT HEARS

first_imgTHE HIGH Court has continued for another four weeks an order restraining a company owned by crook Francois de Dietrich from reducing its bank account in Ballybofey, Co Donegal, below €1.7 million.The order was granted to two Co Donegal businessmen, who are among a large number of people who invested substantial sums in the company.The account of Etic Solutions Ltd, Ballybofey, a firm which allegedly represented to investors that it was involved in purchasing liquidation stock across Europe, has already been frozen on a Garda application. Mr Justice Roderick Murphy was told yesterday there were two Garda investigations into the main director of the company. Daniel O’Donnell, with addresses at Termon, Co Donegal, and South 55th Court, Oaklawn, Illinois, US, is claiming he is owed some €1.6 million arising from his investment with Etic, while John O’Donnell (no relation), Cluain Ard, Letterkenny, claims some €74,000 is due to him. Both are seeking summary judgment against the company.Noel Travers, for the businessmen, told the judge yesterday a warrant for the main director of Etic had been issued in Northern Ireland recently.There had been no appearance for the company to date in this case and he believed it was unlikely a defence would be lodged in the proceedings, counsel added.Mr Justice Murphy agreed to continue the freezing order for another four weeks. It applies to the company’s account at Allied Irish Banks’ branch at Main Street, Ballybofey, which remains frozen after an earlier application by the Garda and is said to contain a substantial credit sum.Daniel O’Donnell claims he is owed some €1.69 million arising from an initial €100,000 investment made by him with Etic, while John O’Donnell claims he is owed some €74,000 arising from an investment of some €53,000.Both men claim they have received no payments from the company and are seeking summary judgment for the amounts allegedly owed.In separate affidavits, both men said they invested in Etic on foot of representations made to them by its local agent, Thomas Ryan, a former inter-county GAA footballer who was also involved in the management of the county team from 2008 to 2010.FRANCOIS INVESTIGATION: GAA LEGEND TOMMY RYAN SOLD ETIC INVESTMENTS, COURT HEARS was last modified: February 8th, 2011 by gregShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)last_img read more

DONEGAL’S MIGRATORY BIRDS STILL HERE THANKS TO GOOD WEATHER

first_imgDonegal’s visiting bird population have delayed their exodus to warmer climates thanks to our unseasonably high temperatures.Tens of thousands of migratory birds including swallows, warblers and housemartins would normally have started their exit – mostly to various parts of Africa by now.But Niall Hatch of Birdwatch Ireland has revealed that our summer visitors are staying a little longer this year as temperatures topped 25C in parts of the country on Wednesday. “Birds don’t have calendars and decide they have to go on a certain date. They go by the climate change.“And thanks to the unseasonably warm weather they are staying longer this year,” he said.And he explained that the increase in temperatures could have a knock-on affect for the chances of many birds survival in Ireland for future generations.Mr Hatch explained how many birds are now feeding as much as they can before they make their 8,000 km journey. “Thanks to the good weather, there is an abundance of flies and other insects which many of these birds are stocking up on.“That will stand them in good stead to make their long journeys and hopefully be able to return to Ireland again next year.“A lot of species suffered this summer because of gorse fires and perhaps this is nature’s way of balancing that out,” he said.As well as insect eaters including swallows and warblers, other birds including many species of tern also migrate at this time of year.Ends DONEGAL’S MIGRATORY BIRDS STILL HERE THANKS TO GOOD WEATHER was last modified: September 29th, 2011 by StephenShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)last_img read more
