The Barred Plymouth Rock chicken originated from a cross between a Dominique rooster and either a black Java or a Black Cochin hen in the mid eighteen hundreds. The Barred Rock chicken is truly one of the best dual purpose birds a hardy bird even in cold weather, it is also docile, tame, and active. Barred Rocks like to run, but they don’t demand much space. Also, due to their heavy structures, they don’t fly, meaning you don’t need a fence to be too high to accommodate their needs. They don’t need much to thrive, so are very easy to keep and breed. The Barred rock males and females have an upright carriage and are graceful, stylish birds. The hens are rarely broody but are good mothers and roosters matures early into a broiler. The Barred Rocks are a great practical addition to any flock for every day in the year use.

|a4e416da73c9aacd5fd38cfe52785447||cb7b66ea18191cee8a2a42e6a8f15c8f| Barred Rocks have long, broad bodies with a well-rounded moderately deep breasts. All of their feathering are black and white horizontal lines (barring) that extend out to their moderately short tails, which are spread well in the roosters but tend to be a bit shorter and twice as much black per line in the hens making them much darker. Their combs are red medium size, single comb evenly serrated with 5 well-defined points that are straight upright. Their beak feet and leg are yellow.

Pop-Up Tents for Pets – Worth the Investment?

Kostenlose Immobilienbewertung

You will be surprised to know that there is a wide variety of pop up tents available in the market.

If you want to give your pet a taste of the outdoor life, let your dog carry his own tent when backpacking or protect any of your elderly cats, you will find a tent that will suit both you and your pet.

Most pet tent are often designed for dogs. However, manufacturers have come to realize that our feline friends could also use one. Let us look at a number of the top kinds of pop up tents available nowadays.

Pop Up Tents for Cats

Needless to say, many dog tents being sold can be used for cats as well.

Always remember (no pun intended) that it is even worse to let cats stay inside the tent without supervision while camping. They will not only try to claw, scratch and bite their way, out but also possibly invite predators if you are not around.

Cat tents still prove to be a favorite product; especially in the way they allow indoor and elderly cats to have fun in the outdoors.

Some of the advantages of cat tents are:

Suitable for Indoor Cats

Pet owners are concerned if the mental stimulation they give to their cat is sufficient. A cat tent lets you take your cat outdoors without needing any leash or harness. What can be really more fun than herding cats!

Protect Aging/Handicapped Cats

If it is taking years for your cat to recover from surgery, you will want to keep it away from dogs and other cats.

When you put up a cat tent on your grounds, your elderly pet can continue to enjoy the outdoors. They can also be used inside your home if you have other cats as well.

Ideal for Front Porches and Balconies

Whether you are living in a condo or apartment, it is hard for your cat to get fresh air. When you set a cat tent on the balcony, you have peace of mind that they will not jump over the railings.

Most cat tent owners set them on their front porch/deck. This way, they can enjoy the weather outside with their furry friends.

Keeps Cats from Jumping Over Fences

Cat tents can be used to prevent indoor cats from jumping over the fence while outdoors. This can relax your mind if you live along a busy street or close to a highway.

Best for Territorial Cats

By nature, cats are territorial, and if you have many cats, this can be a problem. They mark their territory by spraying some urine. At times, it could be hard to remove a cat from a particular closet or room.

In this case, a cat tent can come in handy – since it provides your cat with an enclosed space. This is a lot better than going to an extra room each time you like to see your beloved furry pet.

Using Broadband Technology for Mission Critical Train Radio Communications

Kostenlose Immobilienbewertung

If you live in or around a big city like Sydney or Melbourne, you will have traveled by train at some point in time. Most people would understand the basic concepts, like the signal is at green, the train arrives turning the signal red for a short period of time until the first train has moved a safe distance away, allowing the signal to turn green again. There are signals located in every sector, where trains travel through and they are very reliable; should the signalling system fail, then all the trains stop and you have a right side failure. When the signalling system is no longer operating correctly or if it has received conflicting data from track circuits, all the signals display a red signal and the driver needs to be authorized by the signaller to pass.

The driver after waiting for a short period of time, contacts the signaller using a train radio for permission to pass a signal at red. The train radio is used for mission critical communications, because passing a signal at red can cause an accident, such as one train crashing into the back of another or head on collision if at a siding entering a main line.

The origins of modern train radio go back 40 years to 1977 when a paper written by Clive Kessell on „The Development of Radio Communications between the Signal man and the Driver“ was presented at an Institute of Railways Signalling Engineers meeting to promote interest in developing radio communication between train and the signal box. Radio communications was the best way to stop a train or move one that had stopped; it is safer to keep the driver in the train rather than walking the track looking for a signal post phone to contact the signaller.

A communication standard was developed at the time called UIC751-3 created a 4 channel UHF analogue train radio network that was deployed around London’s Kings Cross and St Pancreas station; it was also rolled out in parts of Europe, especially in West German where much of the initial development occurred.

The analogue train radio Metronet was rolled out in Sydney in 1994 at the same time a very similar radio system called „Cab Secure Radio“ was deployed in the UK and other parts of the world. In early 2000 a newer radio network was developed based in Europe on the popular GSM standard, moving away from an analogues network to digital voice improved the voice quality, reducing the unwanted static that analogue communication was famous for. This digital train radio system (DTRS) was commissioned in 2017 in Sydney to replace the analogue Metronet and improve rail communications.

However the pace of change by mobile phone utilities occurred quickly, GSM (a second generation technology) which DTRS is based on is now almost obsolete; we have all come to love the benefits of advanced 4th generation mobile phone technology. In the railway sector, there is considerable interest in what technology will be used to replace DTRS, how it will be developed and when it will be implemented.

My research looks at these issues to identify how a modem broadband 4th generation mobile technology can be developed to provide all the mission critical communication needed to operate trains along with the benefits that high speed broadband data can deliver like real time CCTV. The risk adverse nature of railways consider any change as an increase in risk, so they have become change adverse in the process. However by keeping old technology, risk increases because the safety benefits associated with newer ways to communicate are not realized; there is also the technical challenges in keeping equipment that is not supported operational when replacement hardware components cannot be found.

Running a modern railways such as the one in Sydney, where you have a million passenger journeys a day really requires a modern communication system so safety is not compromised. The signalling system is reported to have a wrong side failure once in thousands of years but yet they happen for reasons no one every considered.

The train radio allows corrective action to happen immediately by the driver and signaller to prevent an accident from occurring; saving many people from serious injury or death if you have a train crash. Fourth generation mobile communication are now a proven technology that can provide the mission critical communication allowing GSM-R to be retired sooner rather than later.

Guiding Stars In Matrix Reimprinting And The Advanced Patterns of EFT

Kostenlose Immobilienbewertung

Reading the Book Matrix Reimprinting Using EFT by Karl Dawson and Sasha Allenby, I came across an explanation of a concept called Guiding Stars. This was originally the work of Silvia Hartmann in her book The Advanced Patterns of EFT, and reading the explanation in the Matrix book, I understood what was meant in the original explanation by Silvia Hartmann. Let me explain it to you, illustrating with experiences from myself and my clients.

Basically, a Guiding Star is a perfect moment of bliss that we have experienced in life that we try to re-create over and over again in the hope of achieving that blissful feeling again. Since the conditions in which the original moment cannot be duplicated exactly again on later occasions, the person trying to recreate them continues to try, often in a way that is not necessarily constructive or conducive to their happiness.

For example, when I started treating my weight issue, I became aware that certain foods cooked in certain way reminded me of good times with loved ones and that I ate them not due to hunger but in an attempt to re-create that special moment. There was a boyfriend I had whom I loved very much, and the love was reciprocated fully. However, we knew that our relationship was not to last, due to our career commitments at the time, and that was OK. Every Sunday morning, we would have fried eggs and bacon together, often with fried bread. And when I embarked on my weight loss journey, I found out that I was trying to re-create those special loving moments by cooking a full fried breakfast any morning I wanted more attention from my spouse. After tapping on it with EFT, I no longer was attracted to the big fried breakfasts that I ate in those days. Now I can truly enjoy time with my spouse without the need to cook such a kilo-joule rich breakfast.

Another example, given by Karl in Matrix Reimprinting Using EFT, is very typical of some clients I see. His Guiding Star, his own special moment of bliss, was on a beach during a particular holiday, which he had kept trying to re-create. And when he realized what it was, he worked on it and stopped travelling in search for that special feeling, finding it within himself at last, where it had always been. I really am so glad to have read this, because I know many people keep travelling on expensive holidays to exotic locations, going without work for months on end and returning home to a life of virtual poverty as a result. Some are lucky enough to afford this lifestyle, which is great financially. However, they still suffer by missing out on opportunities for settling down with a partner, family, and career that they would like to have, since they keep travelling to exotic remote beaches instead. I usually wait for the appropriate moment to tell them that the happiness they seek is within. It is beautiful when they reach that peace and can finally get on with their lives, more happy and fulfilled.

These two examples I have given in this article are the two most common that I experience with clients. One involves a food or drink, the other involves a holiday to an exotic place. EFT, short for Emotional Freedom Techniques, is an excellent method of releasing the need to continually re-create that Guiding Star and find true contentment and deep inner peace.

Celebrity Autographed Checks

Kostenlose Immobilienbewertung

Autographs from celebrities have been collected for centuries. For many years the most common form an autograph available to collectors a letter, either handwritten or typed, a document, or on a photograph. Many autograph collectors prefer cancelled checks signed by celebrities.

Why are cancelled checks so attractive for autograph collectors? Checks signed by celebrities are desirable for many reasons. The primary reason is that signatures on cancelled financial documents are usually real. Unlike photographs, slips of paper, or index cards where a signature may be open to question, a cancelled financial draft is a legal document where a signature has been authenticated by a financial institution. Forgers would not usually bother to forge a celebrity signature on a cancelled check because it is usually not a cost-effective method of deception. Besides, forgers of legal documents checks are subject to a variety of commerce laws where punishments can be quite severe.

Checks can be so attractive. Unlike many modern checks with similar styles and conventional logos, vintage checks have elaborate engravings and beautiful imprints. They can be quite attractive. Many financial documents have the added benefit of handwriting of the celebrity in the body of the check. The additional handwriting is also useful for validating the authenticity of the document.

Checks are a moment in history that can be very revealing. We have seen financial documents from Edgar Allan Poe to his publisher, a bounced draft from James Dean to the New York Telephone Company, and a curious check from Robert Frost to a travel agency. Why is the travel agency on the Frost check so remarkable? Well, it was written shortly before he traveled to Washington to recite poetry at John Kennedy’s presidential inauguration. The handwritten draft by Frost to his travel agency was probably related to travel expenses to attend the inauguration.

Certain dealers and collectors specialize in checks autographed by celebrities. So consult with a knowledgeable financial document collector before you throw away your shoebox of cancelled checks stored in your attic or basement. You could be sitting on a treasure trove of great autographs.
