Perfect Bottle Calf Bottles - Grit Magazine
I have found (in my opinion) the PERFECT bottles for feeding bottle calves. I’ve never raised calves, so this has been a learning experience for me. The internet has offered lots of great advice, but one issue I ran into was finding a good bottle. At first, I just purchased the simple bottles found at farm supply stores everywhere. You know the ones … opaque white with burnt orange colored nipples at the top. There are two basic types, one with a nipple that just pulls on over the top of the bottle and one that the nipple is fastened with a screw on lid. However, one morning one of my calves pulled the top right off the bottle. I thought I must have mis-threaded the lid, so next time I was very careful to make sure the lid was on securely. I had to hold the tops on with one hand and hold the bottle with the other. Even then it was hard to keep the lids on. I tried switching lids and bottles, increasing the size of the nipple opening, making sure they were tight, everything I could think of, but to no avail. The farm store had milk pails for calves with nipples, so I tried those. They were difficult to handle, the calves had trouble sucking from the stiff nipples they came with, and when they butted the pails out of frustration, the milk flew everywhere. I searched the internet for different types of bottles. I had seen one with a handle on it, but had passed on purchasing it earlier because it was more than I wanted to spend. Now, I took a closer look at it and decided to give it a try. They are made by a New Zealand company called Shoof International. The nipples are high quality Peach Teat brand nipples. They have molded handles, making it much easier to feed two calves at once. But the BEST feature of these bottles is the air valve. The air valve is a toggle switch conveniently located within thumb’s reach just above the handle. Mine has three “speeds,” slow (0), medium (1) and fast (2). Switching this lever allows air into the bottle, which in turn allows the milk to flow easier. This also prevents the bottle from collapsing and lessens frustration on the calf’s part when they cannot get the milk to flow from a vacuum locked bottle. I have found it works best to let the calves suck on the bottles for a few seconds before opening a valve. The milk can leak from the little vent hole, sending an arching sprinkle of milk all over the calves. Another thing I love about these bottles is the large opening. This has made it much easier to fill and clean the bottles. The bottles are a bit difficult to keep clean because of the molded handle. I have a bottle brush, but it falls short in getting all of the curved areas clean without some real trial and error. Also, the nipples are difficult to clean. I have just been rinsing them with hot water and squeezing the nipple to expel the water to clean them. I have not found an easy way to remove and clean the nipples from the lids.www.grit.com
Driven: 2016 Honda Accord Touring - TheChronicleHerald.ca
A number of years back, at the North American International Auto Show, if I recall correctly, a senior Honda executive suggested a wholesale move to alternative fuels will be delayed “because there’s still work to do with the gasoline internal... And it averaged 6. 7 litres per 100 kilometres in the week I had it. That’s good. And it comes in a vehicle you won’t want to cover with a paper bag, with a trunk unimpeded by a battery stack and without 600 volts coursing through your vehicle to power an electric motor. 4-litre achieves its efficiency in a number of ways: first, it’s direct injection, which means fuel is injected right into the cylinders, where it mixes with a swirling influx of air from the valves. As with other direct-injection systems, this allows the engine computer to inject a precise amount of fuel for the conditions. Honda’s i-VTEC variable valve timing system enhances efficiency, as does the continuously variable transmission, which allows the powertrain to maximize performance while keeping the engine speed in an ideal range for fuel economy. You can put aside visions of saving fuel by puttering in the slow lane as countless drivers flip the bird on their way by. Is it a V-6. No. Is it a slouch. You can get four more horses and an extra pound-feet of torque with the high-flow exhaust of the Sport model. The V-6 upgrades power to 278 hp and torque to 252 pound-feet. A six-speed manual or CVT is available on all four-cylinder models, while a V-6 Coupe has the option of a manual but a V-6 sedan comes only with an automatic. It may not have quite the handling of a Mazda6, but it’s close, and it is, to these eyes, more attractive inside and out than Camry. The interior space is huge, the standard amenities are many and the comfort is excellent. The styling of the Accord outside punches above its weight class, with just enough bling and just the right lines. Inside, the Accord dispenses with the expanses of cheap-looking plastic so prevalent in some earlier models. There are two screens, one for the display audio system, positioned low and close enough to access the touch-screen features, and one higher and placed further forward for the backup and side-view cameras. On the road, the ride and handling balance off each other nicely. The steering may lack a little in feedback, but it is precise, while the car holds the road around descending-radius off-ramps well. What it lacks relative to such cars as the Mazda6 or BMW 3 (albeit a much more expensive car) is that pivot-on-a-point feel of the more balanced cars.thechronicleherald.ca
The Role of Sanctions in US-Russian Relations - Carnegie Endowment for International Peace
Sanctions have been a central element of U. S. Russia policy following Moscow’s annexation of Crimea and the beginning of the undeclared war in eastern Ukraine. They have produced some important successes in moderating Russia’s behavior in Ukraine and sent a clear message about the long-term costs of the Kremlin’s dangerous, disruptive foreign policy course. However, overreliance on sanctions in dealing with Russia risks undercutting their effectiveness over the medium to long term as the Kremlin inexorably develops mechanisms to evade sanctions or at a minimum seeks to soften their impact. As a result, the United States must ensure that its approach does not become overly focused on sanctions and instead maintains them as an element of a balanced, long-term strategy within which sanctions are harnessed to larger strategic goals. What Sanctions Have Accomplished Before the impact of sanctions on Russia can be assessed, it is necessary to differentiate among the many types of sanctions the United States has imposed on the Soviet Union and its successor state, the Russian... The United States has frequently used sanctions against the Russian state, Russian individuals, and Russian companies since the Boris Yeltsin era, many of them in connection with Russian activities unrelated to Ukraine. Nonproliferation-Related Sanctions The United States has imposed sanctions on Russian companies for arms and technology transfers that the United States has opposed since the 1990s. Sanctions have also been imposed on Russian individuals, banks,... In particular, Russia’s active arms trade (it is second only to the United States as an arms supplier worldwide and even briefly surpassed the United States in 2013 ) has routinely created issues involving countries that pose nonproliferation... The fact that the United States has had to impose sanctions on some Russian entities on multiple occasions—in particular, Rosoboronexport, Russia’s defense-related export-import agency—suggests that Russian government officials and private... The imposition of penalties in response to the breach of sanctions is therefore a failure from a strategic standpoint, even if it may have tactical advantages. This sanctions effort was intended both to discourage activity by Russian entities in sensitive areas and to prod the Kremlin into building a more effective export control system in the wake of the Soviet Union’s collapse. For example, in the mid-1990s, the United States succeeded in persuading Moscow that it should not export a centrifuge enrichment plant to Iran. The United States had threatened to impose sanctions on Russian companies in the event of such a transfer. Moreover, this reduction in arms sales took place despite the fact that the Russian government successfully opposed the establishment of a comprehensive arms embargo on Iran at the UN. Moscow succeeded in watering down this initiative, which ended...carnegieendowment.org
