www.FarmProgress.com – June 2011 39 Kansas Farmer Business Watch Diversiﬁcation is the future at Taylors’ 4-Star Hydroponics LIVING BASIL: Jarrod Taylor looks over the latest product at 4-Star Hydroponics: living basil. The company is growing the herb for Kroger, where it will be marketed with the rootball intact. T TRAINING TOMATOES: Lee Taylor walks on stilts down the rows of growing tomatoes to adjust the wires they’re trained to climb. The vines are leaned a few inches forward every few days to encourage new branches to climb. How hydroponic tomatoes are grown in Kansas H YDROPONIC vegetables have been grown in Holland for generations. The plant genetics used at 4-Star Hydroponics in St. John were developed in the Netherlands, and the seeds for the hydroponic family farming operation are imported from Holland. “These plants have been bred to grow well in greenhouse conditions, and to root well in the perlite and nutrient water we grow them in,” Taylor says. Each plant is rooted in a gallon container of perlite; drip irrigation tubes keep the growing medium wet with water that has been enriched with nutrients normally found in fertile soil. He says the plants have also been bred to produce the fruit size and pulp consistency that consumers associate with slicing tomatoes. Generally, he says, tomatoes are considered a fairly easy crop to grow. “They are, in the sense that they survive and are pretty forgiving,” he...
AEG/Electrolux standardizes on Zytel HTN for oven fans and frames ® AEG/Electrolux has standardized on glass-reinforced Zytel®HTN for the high-speed fans and inner glass door support frames in its new Competence range of electric ovens. By Hubert Mueller, DuPont Engineering Polymers, Germany Switching to glass-reinforced Zytel® HTN high performance polyamide from metal means that AEG/Electrolux can standardize the fans and support frames used across its new range of Competence electric ovens. "By moulding these components in Zytel® HTN , we have reduced the overall number of parts used, improved production efficiency and implemented substantial cost savings," said the design director for Electrolux’s Competence range, Horst Meister, who is based at Electrolux’s Central European Oven Development Centre in Rothenburg ob der Tauber (Germany). AEG/Electrolux requires high temperature dimensional stability for the fans, which need to run reliably at continuous temperatures of up to 260 degrees C – necessary when the oven is being automatically cleaned by pyrolysis at up to 500 degrees C. The fans of glass reinforced Zytel® HTN meet this specification with ease. As an added plus, the new high-speed fans also cool down oven door exteriors better than the previous, metal fans. Even after a full hour of hot air operation, the outside surface of the oven doors reach an average of only 40 degrees C, whereas the doors reached up to 80 degrees C when they were cooled by metal fans. The complex design of AEG/ Electrolux’s Competence oven fans means that the mould tool is unusually large; it is about the size of an office desk. This is because seven solid cores were required for the...
This Meal Planning Guide is based on the Exchange System, which groups foods into categories such as starches, fruits, vegetables, milk, meats and meat substitutes, and fats. One serving in a group is called an “exchange.” An exchange has about the same amount of carbohydrates, protein, fat, and calories as a serving of every other food in that same group. So, for example, you could swap one small apple for 3/4 cup of blueberries for one fruit serving. Sometimes nutrient figures may seem to vary a bit from list to list due to rounding-off, different serving sizes, or different methods of preparation. But if you eat the specified number of servings of each group, you can be comfortable that you’ll have a diet rich in nutrients and low in fat and calories. At first it appears a bit tedious measuring out an ounce of this and a cup of that, and with some foods it can be hard to measure or estimate an exact serving size. An inexpensive kitchen scale will come in handy. And these pictures will illustrate some helpful estimations:
Cereal Chem. 67(5):448-451 Temperature profiles and quality characteristics (batter specific gravity, weight loss, cross-sectional area, and symmetry) were evaluated in a lean cake formulation heated by microwave and conventional energy in metal and glass baking pans for the purpose of choosing one pan type for future studies. The statistical results showed that cakes baked in glass pans in microwave and conventional ovens had more similar crosssectional areas and weight losses than their metal pan counterparts. Also, temperature profiles showed hottest edges and coolest centers for cakes baked in glass pans in both oven types. Cake quality is influenced by pan size and shape and by pan materials (Charley 1950, 1952, 1956; Toledo 1980.) For example, a shallow cake often results in a better quality layer cake (Charley 1952). Cake volume was higher when dark, dull pans composed of steel, japanned iron, or anodized aluminum were used, and it was lower in shiny aluminum, tinned iron, stainless steel, and copper pans (Charley 1950, 1952). Also, the heat transfer characteristics were different in glass than in metal pans. Glass pans...

New York and London are the leading cities in terms of wealth generation and economic growth which means they are likely to appeal to expats seeking a world class city to live and work in. A new report from international real estate adviser, Savills, classes leading cities on their prominence and fame, as well as economy and size that give them what it calls ‘world class’ city status with the X-factor. The firm has looked at a combination of global competitiveness, together with measures such as connectivity, international visitors and web search data, to determine overall world city status.

INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS Location 1. The fireplace may be hanged on any wall surface that can support its weight and where it can be leveled. As it does not irradiate any heat from the back and no rear clearances are needed. 2. The heater, which is located at the base of the fireplace, must be a minimum of 16 inches away from any combustible material. 3. It is important that the wall on to which the fireplace is to be installed is of sound construction. It is recommended that the brackets are installed directly into beams for support. But not necessary depending on the size and weight of the unit. 4. Yosemite fireplaces are approved for indoor use only. 5. The fireplace must be kept away from any source of damp or moist conditions. Avoid any close contact with water. 6. This fireplace produces heat. Consequently it is important to ensure that a suitable wall covering is selected behind and around the appliance. Typical wood frame drywall construction is suitable. 2|P a g e Installation Figure 1 1. Select the position of the fireplace on the wall to which it is to be mounted. Draw a level horizontal line on the wall at the required height. This line will correspond to the top of the fireplace so it is important to allow for the extra height of the glass face. 2. Mark the center line of the fireplace on to the horizontal line. 3. Place the Installation Plate along the horizontal line and line up the center “V” cut out with the center line. See Figure 1. 4. DRYWALL INSTALLATION Install screws into studs at 4 outside corner screw holes. If studs are not present, install self drilling hollow wall anchors at the 4 outside corners and find wood studs with at least 4 more screws on the mounting plate (two high and two low). Holes are offset to allow finding wood studs at normal spacing. Attach more screws into larger models as needed.
