Conch River As an Alternative Source of Protein

Conch River- Source of Protein.

A small number of people in some countries consume river conch. They cook in different ways, roasted, fried, boiled or cooked like cooking seashells. For the local community, the conch or rice snail is one source of protein that can be obtained with an easy and cheap way from nature.

Some people may feel disgusted to eat the meat of this river conch because a little slimy. The unattractive shape also makes people lazy to consume river conch.

Is it true that this river conch is an alternative source of protein?

Review of Earthquake Resistant Building Structure

In order to become a building that is resistant to earthquake then the structure of the building needs to be considered. As in the review, this structure will discuss Footings, columns/ post, roofs, and walls.

Earthquake: Building Resistant

1. Footing.
The Footing is a lower structure that holds the structure above and forwards the load to the ground so that the Footing satisfies the following.

The Footing should be placed on a solid ground, the Footing laid on the hard ground. Footing lies deeper than 45 cm below ground level. The whole Footing must lie on a strong ground.

The Footing must be connected to the Footing belt (sloof), this is given to the local Footing as well as the continuous Footing.

The Footing beam (sloof) should be lumped on the Footing with a 1.5 m with 12 mm diameter iron reinforcement.

The Footing should not be placed too close to the cliff wall to avoid landslides. To prevent cliff slopes, the soil is given a retaining wall from the stone pairs of times or from bamboo or wooden plaster.

2. Column / Column.
columns or poles to help the wall in holding the load above it while making the wall into a ductile wall. The things to note in the column are as follows.

Buildings should use columns as load-bearing elements, eg using reinforced concrete columns.

The column should be laid on the Footing beam (sloof) or the bond is passed to the Footing.

At the top end of the column is repeated or each column must be tied and put together with the beam around / ring balk.

Building frames (Sloof, beams, and columns) should have a strong and sturdy relationship.

The column should be equipped with a stiffening beam (ring balk, latei beam) to withstand the lateral force of the earthquake.

3. Building Beams.
The beams on simple house building consist of ring balk (beam around) and lintel beam. Latex beam/lintel has a function as a horizontal reinforcement and is generally located above the frame. Crosslinks can be mounted when possible.

4. Roof Building.
The roof structure needs to pay attention to the following points.

As discussed upfront, the roof should have a lightweight by using materials such as zinc, asbestos, aluminum or other lightweight materials.

The framework of the Truss must be strong to withstand the roof load and should be levied on its support that is on the column or ring beam.

In the longitudinal direction, the roof should be reinforced with a wind bond between the truss of the Truss.

5. Walls.
The walls in particular of cement walls have the following uses.

The building wall in the event of an earthquake will receive the surface load in the direction perpendicular to the wall and the shear load on the parallel direction of the wall.

The strength of the inner wall of the load is influenced by the existence of the armature on the wall side and the reinforcement (practical column) on the wall itself.

The walls should be haunted in columns with a length of armature 1.5 times the length of a brick or brick. In addition, the armature is installed every 10 layers of red brick or every 3 layers of brick.

The walls of ampigs (mountains) will experience a large deflection when shaken by the earthquake because it is located at the highest part. Therefore, the mountains require the reinforcement of a wall frame.

The walls should be provided with practical columns and binding beams on sections of the wall that have an area of more than 12 m2 or wall length 15 times wall thickness.

Installation of ½ brick walls should be reinforced by practical columns binding both with sloof (foot) and ring beams at the top of the wall.

Eliminate Body Odor with Herbs

Many people have a problem with the smell of sweat so sharp that it often interfere with work relationships. The appearance of various scents and perfumes is very helpful to those who have body odor problems. Perfume aroma of the manufacturer is very diverse ranging from flowers, fruits, tobacco, synthetic to a mixture of various scents. The smell of perfume can be designed to cause passion and sexual fantasies of a person.

Herbs: Eliminate Body Odor

The existence of these various perfume products make the problem of sharp body odor becomes less important or even forgotten. Dependence on this perfume will be a very big disaster if you lose perfume for example. You will be surrounded by anxiety associated with perfume, for example, out of stock, lost in the street, forgot not to wear. Body odor can not really be removed just like that with perfume, like a perfume only serves as an umbrella.

To get rid of body odor with herbs can be done as follows.
Take the kenanga flower as much as 2 handfuls add temugiring that has been peeled as much as one handful. Both of these materials are finely ground and stirred evenly. The shape becomes a small grain the size of pill medicine or capsule. The concoction of herbal medicine that you have form the small granules then dried. You can dry by way of drying in the sun or using the oven. At the time of drying you should keep the cleanliness and the level of heat to the material. You can keep it in a jar or closed medicine container, and keep it for a few days. Medicinal herbs taken or eaten with bananas every morning and afternoon as much as one pill.

There are other herbs that are easier to do. This herb utilize leaves beluntas and basil leaves. You should eat more often these two types of herbal ingredients. The way of processing to become an herbal medicine according to your taste. You may mix it with other foodstuffs or make it like a juice. You may eat fresh leaves or cook them first. If you are unfamiliar with the smell and flavor of the leaves, you should mix with other foods. You can ask friends help to mix into a recipe that suits your taste.

The Causes of Pet Bird Pairs do not Want to Lay Their Eggs?

Birds- Not Lay Their Eggs

We keep birds for many reasons, among others, beautiful voice, good shape, already rare in nature, or because of the beauty of the color of the fur. Hobbyists and bird breeders often keep birds in cages in pairs. The main problem that often happens is that the pair of birds does not want to lay their eggs.

Why do birds not want to lay their eggs?
The problem must be searched for its causes because the possibility does not only come from one cause.

The causes of your pet bird do not lay eggs include:

Both parent birds may be of the same sex: male x male, or female x female. So, make sure both the parent bird is a couple of males and females. The most common problem is the difficulty of distinguishing between male and female birds. Some bird species such as parakeets and walnuts have similarities between males and females. Often male and female birds have a singing skill, which can only be distinguished by an expert hobbyist.

It is possible that the birds have not reached the age of the adult sex, either one or both mothers are paired. Signs of maturity birds that are ready to mate are often difficult to see. can only be seen by experienced people.

One or both birds are not ready mentally to mate. Many factors affect the mental readiness of birds. Usually occurs in male birds younger than female birds. Birds that since childhood grows in a comfortable environment will have a better mentality.

Birds are afraid or uncomfortable with disturbances in cage lighting, noisy environments, frequent people, or other dreaded animals such as cats and dogs.

Other important reasons include:
Birds have nutritional problems. Birds should not have malnutrition or excessive obesity.
Birds have hormonal disorders. This disorder can occur in female birds and male birds.
Birds in sick condition. Birds often do not show symptoms of pain because their instinct will cover it from the threat of predators.
Birds have physical disabilities or are hereditary.
Birds experience disturbances in the reproductive system other than hormonal factors.
Too often mated and changing partners in one season.

When it is known the causes as above then the treatment of the mother bird can be applied. Keep in mind, however, that the causes that affect your pet birds will not spawn may not be just one cause.
In some cases, such as physical disability, or not yet reached adult age, the best solution is to replace the troubled bird with a new bird.

Also, make sure the environmental conditions support the cage. Keep the cage not in a closed room, and the air temperature is cultivated relatively stable. In the cage needs to be provided nest compilers for birds encouraged to mate.

Architecture Overview of Earthquake Resistant Buildings

Our previous writings have examined the damage to buildings caused by earthquakes. We have also studied the concept of the simple earthquake-resistant building. This is important for people living in earthquake-prone areas.

The Building Concept of the Simple Home Living that Earthquake Resistant

Simple residential building earthquake-resistant is very useful for residents who live in earthquake areas. An earthquake caused by several causes is not discussed on this page but is discussed in another page at Countries with middle-income inhabitants desperately need the concept of simple earthquake-resistant residential buildings.

Earthquake- Simple Residential Building

Objectives Planning for Earthquake Resistant Buildings.
The purpose of planning earthquake resistant buildings as follows below.
Prevent and reduce the incidence of human fatalities.
Prevents, reduces, or protects people from injury.
Prevent and reduce the occurrence of damage to buildings.
Prevent and reduce the incidence of damage to the contents of the building (property, furniture, and valuables).

The building’s concept of earthquake resistant can be formulated based on references written by earthquake experts, institutions and studies from a field survey in earthquake-damaged areas.

The Principles of Earthquake Resistant Buildings.
Earthquakes can be classified into 3 levels ie, light earthquakes, moderate earthquakes, and heavy earthquakes. In the construction of simple earthquake resistant, residential buildings must meet the principles of earthquake-resistant buildings. These principles are as follows.
In the event of a light earthquake, the building is not damaged.
In the event of a moderate earthquake, the technical building may suffer damage to non-structural elements but should not be damaged in its structural elements. Simple earthquake-resistant buildings may damage the walls.

In case of a major earthquake, the technical building may suffer damage to its non-structural elements and structures. Fixed buildings should not collapse, while simple buildings may suffer wall damage and retrofitting practically. The damage can still be fixed.

Buildings that are resistant to large earthquakes are ductile buildings (clay, a lot). The ductile building is the ability of the building to change shape but still can accept the burden. The opposite of ductile builds is the brittle building. The brittle building is not very resistant to earthquake shocks.

Buildings Damage Caused by Earthquakes

Strong earthquakes can cause damaged facilities and infrastructure. Some scientific studies concluded that the damage to buildings by the earthquake occurred in many residential buildings inhabited by people with middle to lower income. The damage encountered can be either one or a combination of damage to the roof, walls, and foundations.

Making Organic Fertilizer Using Lumbricus

Earthworm – Organic Fertilizer

One method of making compost from organic material is by utilizing earthworm mainly from Lumbricus rubellus type. This method is more effective than the compost method in general that relies solely on the activity of bacterial decomposers. In a worm composting system, bacteria decomposers that are aerobic bacteria remain active to decompose waste. Fresh organic waste and the resultant bacteria will be digested by earthworms.

Earthworms As A Solution Kitchen Waste Problems

Facing the problem with kitchen waste?

Domestic waste consists of organic and nonorganic wastes. The largest part of the domestic waste is the organic waste, which we can convert to compost (organic fertilizer).

Earthworm- Solution Kitchen Waste Problems

Compost can be made by using earthworm activity (Lumbricus rubellus) to decompose organic material so that the time required is shorter than composting process conventionally. Lumbricus rubellus worm is a worm that lives in the topsoil, is brownish red and the lower part is pale yellowish.
