Soil Acidity

Soil – surface layer of the hard shell of the Earth (lithosphere). Soil is a kind of biological membranes, formed as a result of vital activity of organisms and other conditions occurring on the surface of the Earth. Definition acidity of the soil at elevated soil acidity, some crop plants may not receive adequate nutrition, due to limited access of nutrients, macro-and micro-elements and increase the solubility harmful substances. In the Russian market there is a special device to measure acidity pochvy.Pri desire, this instrument can be found in specialty stores for gardeners gardeners. Acidity measured in the ph. Also, soil acidity can be determined using the indicator litmus paper, familiar with the school course in chemistry. To do this, you need to take a sample of soil, moisten the sample with water and attach the indicator litmus paper to the image of the soil.

Change the color of the indicator to blue indicates neutral soil; zelovaty blue color – the soil, whose acidity is close to neutral, yellow – weak acidic soil, pink – a sign high soil acidity, the red color indicates high acidity of the soil. There are still some natural features, indirectly pointing to the characteristics of soil acidity. There are some observations that relate diversity of flora, soil acidity. For example: mint, plantain, prefer soils with high acidity; * tricolor violet, grows in soils strongly and * on slightly acidic soils grow raspberries, apple, nettle * Neutral soil is in most cases, the inheritance of birch and chamomile

Greenpeace Electronics

Environmentalists blamed for electronics manufacturers to inattention to the ecology of the International Greenpeace believes that the world's electronics manufacturers still do not pay enough attention to ecological problems, not letting an alternative environmentally friendly products in sufficient quantities to reduce the harmful impact on its use and disposal. Environmentalists point out that over the last year of electronics manufacturing companies carried out a series of promises in the production of environmentally friendly technology. At Gary Kelly you will find additional information. In 2008, 15 leaders in this area submitted for investigation 50 of its products – mobile phones and smart phones, televisions, computer monitors, computers, laptops and game consoles. Greenpeace evaluated the products on their content of toxic chemicals, their energy efficiency, the full life cycle (the possibility of processing and advanced) as well as several other factors, in particular, promoting the idea of environmental friendliness and innovation. More and more goods began to fulfill the environmental requirements. However, some companies refused to provide their products for the study by Greenpeace.

Incidentally, a week ago, it became known that the production and sale of popular Plasma tv with great power may be banned in Europe in the spring of this year, because as part of the fight against climate change European countries will be new standards for energy consumption This type of consumer devices. Planned measures will contribute to the disappearance of the sale of inefficient in energy for TVs, and a new labeling system will allow customers to choose TVs the lowest power consumption. Microorganisms on Earth are capable of producing rain, and automobile exhaust – Lightning In a study of precipitation samples from different regions of the Earth (Finland, Brazil and Sweden), Swedish scientists have concluded that microorganisms are capable of causing rains in various parts of our planet.

Silicon Valley

Overlapping of factory floors, driveways, warehouses, gardens, oil depots and residential development – such is now the southern coast of Saratov. Sanitary zones there, the smoke from the chimneys yoke, and often smoke plume stretches along the coast to the north, on the promenade. Read more from Verizon Communications to gain a more clear picture of the situation. Leninsky District, was luckier. His planned and built not in the frenzy industrialization of the Stalin's Five Year Plans. The slogan was so – give cutting-edge technology, electronics. If you would like to know more then you should visit Verizon Communications. Here are our 'Silicon Valley'.

Air should be cleaner, less noise. Planned out: to the east from the main area Industrial Area with the railway to the west, along the Bald Hills plateau – residential development. K line made all the public facilities. Along the highway – the boulevard. Everything right, but my annoyance, so put the length of the house that the plateau is not visible was. And on the slopes bred gray lichen garages. Blocked the access of fresh air with forested slopes.

From the Third villa drove the city to the north and north-east – to the steppe. First, the village youth, then 'Techglass', 5 and 6 quarters. Thus arose the dull monotony of concrete boxes. From this architecture, experts say, not long and the 'mental hospital' to go. Newborns 'sleeping areas' of the city – Sunny, Jubilee – not better. The eyes are not what catch. Called visual pollution. And so everywhere: no water-logging, so dirty air, clean air is, but the structure of the 'creep' along the slope, if the slopes are reliable, then the trees do not grow – clay salt, etc. What to do? It is time listen to the experts: architects – city planners, ecologists, hydrogeologists, and other landshaftovedam; do design, construction and supervision of urban development in a scientific and, therefore, objective basis. Well, what about us ordinary citizens, ordinary person? How to survive in such an unsightly conditions, when the streets are clogged with cars chadyaschimi, ragweed grows on wasteland, and turned into landfill pits full swing breed new, hitherto unknown virus antigens. To begin to understand what environmental conditions of our residential area, there is a real threat and where it comes from.
