Top 6 Healthy Fish To Eat And Those To Avoid

1. Pole or troll-caught Albacore Tuna (From British Columbia or the US)

Unlike most tunas, Pole or troll-caught Albacore tuna has considerably lower mercury levels and other contaminants, thus safer/healthier to eat. This is also the canned white tuna you will find in the market with a Super Green rating. The young albacore tuna is fished in British Columbia and the US using troll or poles, unlike bigger ones that can only be caught with longlines. However, the younger fish have very low mercury and contaminant ratings, with those caught in northern waters (colder) richer in omega-3 fatty acids. A bit of homework is needed to know the kind of tuna you’ll be buying. The MSC (Marine Stewardship Council) blue eco-label is the sign to look for when shopping for healthy and good quality albacore tuna.

Everything You Need to Know About a Damper

If you want your car to serve you for many years, you must understand its different parts and how they work. For this reason, we will look at a damper and how it works.

A damper is a hydraulic or mechanical device that absorbs and dampens shock waves in a car. This is accomplished by transforming the shock’s kinetic energy into heat which is subsequently dispersed. It is a tube filled with oil and containing a piston that moves at a predetermined speed to absorb shock waves. See here for koni FSD.

Components of a Damper

The primary body of a damper is made up of these 5 parts:

1. A piston with holes that have been accurately carved into it.

Everything You Should Know About Cottage Windows

Cottage windows are one of the most cost-efficient solutions to give a new building that classy, charming touch of traditional homes.

But what are cottage windows, anyway? Originally, cottage windows were made from wood. This made them wear down over time, hence needing refurbishing every few years. Thanks to advanced materials and breakthrough technologies, you can install new cottage windows that are way more durable.

Cottage Windows is actually more of an umbrella term that describes windows used in traditional homes. This doesn’t mean that they won’t suit more modern buildings.

Also known as Tudor or Georgian windows, cottage windows can be made from a wide range of materials such as uPVC, wood, and aluminum. Just like regular windows, cottage windows can open either as a casement, with hinges, or sash, with a vertically sliding frame. What makes these windows unique is their glass, which consists of multiple smaller …

Protecting Livestock From Predators

1. The Value of Guardian Animals

Guardian animals are an investment not only in the health of livestock – they reduce stress levels and that can lead to weight gain – but animals such as Lamas, dogs, and donkeys also keep livestock safe from predation. That weight gain adds to the bottom line, so these animals offer an exceptional return on investment.

The choice of which guardian animal to choose will depend on the type of livestock as well as limitations in terms of space – and the animals that are preying on the livestock. There are also a number of other animals that are not classed as ‘guardians’ – but that can be tremendously useful. For instance, barn cats can help to keep rodent numbers in check. That can be of tremendous use to those farms that are focused on the production of eggs – one of the favourite …

The Differences Between Tennis And Badminton

Differences Between Tennis And Badminton

On more than one occasion, both sports have been compared to each other. This is due to the fact that they share quite a few of the same characteristics when compared side by side.

Buying A New Car – A Complete Guide

If you’re going to buy a new car, there are many choices that you have available, especially when they are arriving faster than ever before.

Manufacturers are exploiting new sectors and expanding in areas at a rapid pace. They are targeting niches, which is the older term, but this simply means that they are focused on crossovers and SUVs which are much more mainstream than family hatchbacks.

It’s not just about the cars, but the powertrain that is part of these vehicles which has made the whole situation much more complicated. Increasing numbers of electric cars and PHEV vehicles which most major manufacturers are producing will have many different body styles as well. The government is trying to than the sale of new cars that have combustion engines beyond the year 2030, but it seems likely that this alternative powertrain will also become as redundant as current models – especially …
