Curious striations on avocado sapling trunk...?

Greetings I started growing an avocado tree from a pit...it's at least 8 months old now.  My roommate said it was important to nip off some of the top shoots so that it would get stronger lower leaves.  After it got about 20 inches tall, we nipped off the top, and now a few weeks later the top half of the trunk is showing signs of what I can only assume is infection. The bottom of the stalk/trunk is quite strong and stiff - as are the 6 or so leaves coming from it.  Above that, where the newer leaves are, the stalk is mottled with 2-5mm long dark spots running vertically, and all the leaves in the area with the spots are paper thin, slightly translucent, and very weak.  On top of them they have a waxy shiny sheen, where the healthy leaves do not.  The healthy leaves are quite erect sideways, opaque, and vibrant dark green -  while the weaker leaves droop almost vertical, are translucent, and lighter in colour. Is it an infection?  Is there anything I need to worry about?  Is there anything I can actually do? Pictures:  1) Good bottom 1/3 section 2) mottled middle 1/3 section 3) mottled top 1/3 section

Need some help on a broken valve handle, I'blers. Can you help me out? Answered

I hate that I cannot find a picture of the valve to show you exactly what I mean but I have a 1/4 in compression fit water valve in my utilities closet that leads to the evaporative cooler above.  When I went to turn the handle it turned but the central part that is actually the valve stem (the part that screws in/out) did not.  It is one of the older types with a flat handle and seemingly hollow central stem.  Is there any way to turn the valve on without completely replacing the valve? edit: Sorry.  Somehow I always forget one important detail.  It's a valve on 1/4 in copper tubing.  I got some pictures but they look crappy because there wasn't really enough room for the camera so I took them with my phone and found my phone's usb cable.  The valve was there first and the heater and water heater were installed later, leaving very little room to work. I also tried the vice grip idea.  The brass stem cracked and  part of the stem is gone now. Even if I do just end up replacing it, I thank you for your input.

DIY Storable Tubular Extendable Member (Tape Measure Style Extendable Robot Arm)

Hello, I am on an FTC robotics team, and often robots are required to lift/reach objects. This year, a challenge was to reach up and grab onto a pullup bar; the robot then completed a pullup. One common method this year was to use a tape measure; the tape measure was unwound using a motor, remained rigid due to standout, and was then wound up, lifting the robot in the process.  I am now in the offseason and I want to improve on this design. I found that a very similar mechanism to the tape measure has been used for extendable antennas on spacecraft. I would like to create a similar mechanism. The main difference between the tape measure and the STEM mechanism is that the STEM extends a tube. The tube is rolled from a sprung piece of metal. The piece that I am looking for is a material that could be flattened, but would retain its tubular shape like on the STEM. Does anyone know of any types of pipe or tubing that could be cut lengthwise and possess this springy characteristic? Is there anyway to create a material like this? Thanks, icecats

What are these used for? I found these "Scissors that don't cut anything" in a grab bag at Goodwill. Answered

Hi everybody! I found these scissors in a grab bag at goodwill, but they don't really cut anything. They just kind of dent it. There is a sort of blade on one side, but on the other side there is just a groove in the plastic. I went and tried to google everything I could think of today, but I didn't find anything similar. I also took them to my local craft store and they didn't know either. Anyone have any ideas? My best guess is that maybe you could use them for bending wire edged ribbon, or possibly for some flower arranging purpose. The serrated edge on the top is kind of sharp, so I suppose you could saw something(stems) with it, and maybe strip the leaves from stems with the strange hex hole in the middle, however it is plastic, so I am not sure that it would hold up very well. Anyone have any ideas?

Removing a teeny/tiny iPod/iPhone drilled screw

Hello, I have been doing some repair work on an iPod Touch 3G. One repair I'm having to perform is the power button which is totally unresponsive. This required removing some very soft tiny screws at the bottom of the device. Unfortunately, one didn't survive the screwdriver and quickly chewed up, which means I've had to drill it using a drill bit, which took a surprising amount of effort. The problem now I have is extracting the final stem which is still screwed in. The stem isn't flush with the metal but it's not far off, making it hard to grab using pliers. I'm looking for some suggestions how to remove it. I've read that cutting a thin screwdriver in half and gluing it using super glue is a way. Another way seems to buying an extraction set but the only one I can find in the area looks far too big (despite having a precision piece). Thoughts? All suggestions welcome.

It can be configured to fit in a bike frame in any number of positions as long as the roller can touch the front tire. I plan to mount this on a trike, There are only two possible locations, on the handlebar stem, or the fork center hole for the fender after fender has been removed. I need mounting instructions, user manual, premium hardware kit, any special mounting brackets, and sources as to where I can buy a fully assembled kit charged and ready for mounting. I am concerned that the unit is not long enough to reach the tire from the stem. I might need some sort of extender block to make it longer.

Lets save the Bees. Things YOU can do!

Bee habitat is not just flowers, it is also brood space and shelter. Most bees are not honey bees or bumble bees, they are little solitary bees  and they do a lot of polination. We need to provide them with lots of brood space and overnight shelter too!  And modern garden practice is simply not doing it. First of all, I am not a bee racist. I am trying to help all the bee species.  I find that there is a succession of different bee species through the year. And they use different size holes .   In fact they don't just lay eggs in these holes, they shelter in them too. I did not know this..  This year I also discovered that they burrow into the pith in old raspberry stems and in grape vines! So if you compost your old raspberry canes,  you are probably composting bee babies  too. Dave from Camas, Washington has been bundling teasel stems for several years for orchard mason bees.   You could do the same with raspberry canes!? http://www.permies.com/permaculture-forums/520_0/critter-care/orachard-mason-bees I found this a week ago after I had started my project.  I make holes in cop blocks for the bees. I have also started layering plant stems At least 4 bee species are using the first cob bee blocks for brood or shelter.  I have some pictures at the link below.  Hopefully you can see the captions too.

Growing roses from seeds

I have a pair of nice, perfumed roses that are getting quite old now. This season one of them produced a nice fruit containing 8 seeds. It is a light pink variety and I also obtained some seeds from a white perfumed rose. Last time I did this was with my grandfather and I was still a little kid LOL The common way of multiplying your roses is by grafting them onto a fresh stem of some wild or low quality roses. The reason for this is quite simple: A "manufacturered rose" is usually designed to look pretty and show certain other features, but not be a strong plant. When using seeds it all comes down to how strong the original mother rose was, not the stock it was crafted on. In some cases you end up with a little bush rose in other cases with something that grows so high that the stem will break in strong winds. But for the lucky few cases that do work good you are paid off with a beautiful new rose. For next couple of weeks the seeds will stay in the fridge to aid germination but if it works out I will take pics of the progress and document it all in an Instructable - but it will be about a year to finnish as roses grow slow from seeds. If I don't forget it again I will also show how to graft one rose onto another to get a bush with different varieties in one.

Would the water be drinkable? Will Abs stand up to constant presure or would it be best to release the presure when not in use? Im thinking 35-40psi would be reasonable with the tank 2/3rds full of water.

Elefanternas passion för matematik och naturvetenskap - Edublogs

Http://isabellica.edublogs.org/2013/03/09/elefanternas-passion-for-matematik-och-naturvetenskap/ UB studenter att göra lärande mer hands-on, tillämpliga för pre-collegiate studenter Den endast lärande hinder Lavone Rodolph stött på gymnasiet försökte kombinera vad han lärt sig i klassrummet med det verkliga livet, sade han. Då var utbildning ibland immateriella bortom tjäna ett betyg. “Om jag lära ett koncept i klass, fysik eller kemi, ibland jag inte visste hur jag skulle använda det i mitt personliga liv eller jag visste inte nytta av lärande det än passerar en test,” sade Rodolph. Rodolph-nu en doktorand i datateknik – försöker förbättra lärandet för studenter vid sitt alma mater, Hutchinson Central teknisk högstadium i Downtown Buffalo, så de inte behöver möta den samma problem som han gjorde. Rodolph arbetar med tvärvetenskaplig vetenskap och teknik partnerskap (ISEP), ett femårigt program som leds av UB. Dess huvudsakliga fokus är att förbättra upplevelsebaserat lärande i naturvetenskap, teknik, teknik och matematik fält (STEM) för studenter i Buffalo offentliga skolor. Forskning har visat att en betydande andel − − 33 procent av barnen börjar tappa intresset för vetenskap så unga som 8 år. Av middle school ökar andelen till nästan hälften av dessa barn, enligt National Center for STEM grundutbildning. ISEP syftar till nytändning i en passion för vetenskap och andra STEM ämnen genom att erbjuda mitten och gymnasieelever en mer praktisk, tvärvetenskapligt förhållningssätt till lärande. Det innebär planering studiebesök att stärka förståelsen av lärande material och utformning laboratorieförsök som illustrerar abstrakta begrepp. Dessa aktiviteter gör lärande STEM ämnen kul, ett mål som Rodolph anser vara högsta prioritet för ISEP. “Huvudmålet är nr 1, att göra något kul STEM fält på högstadiet nivå,” sade Rodolph. “Sätt från högstadiet nivå, de vill fortsätta det på gymnasienivå. Och igen, målet på gymnasienivå är att göra det roligt och utmanande, så från gymnasienivå, de kan fullfölja ett STEM fält på kollegial nivå.” Som en examen assistent, har Rodolph hjälpt med samordna lärare i flera projekt. Dessa inkluderar undervisning Android-programmering, instruera eleverna på att skapa kol-dioxid-drivna racecars och planerar en resa till Buffalo Museum of Science att se hur DNA kan användas i rättsmedicinska undersökningar. Sedan starten 2005 har expanderat ISEP från två pilotskolor till 12 hög-behov mitten och gymnasier. Under 2011 fick det $9,8 miljoner euro i finansiering från National Science Foundation (NSF). − och andra stödjande partner som arbetar med tre viktiga partner − Buffalo offentliga skolor, Buffalo State College och buffel Museum of Science Roswell Park Cancer Institute, ISEP syftar till att uppnå sitt mål att förbättra elevernas lärande genom att samla resurserna. Lärarutbildningen är en stor del av ISEP’S plan. För att bättre förbereda lärare att göra STEM utbildning mer relevant för eleverna, kan ISEP och dess partner lärare att bli studenterna själva. Under somrarna, lärare utveckla deras professionella kompetens genom att arbeta med UB doktorander och tillägna sig färdigheter inom forskning och utredning undervisning. Under läsåret, både akademiker och studenter hjälper lärare utforma och genomföra mer hands-on lärande i klassrummet. “[ISEP] mål är att ge lärarna en ökad professionalisering, öka utbildning lärarna själva, så de kan få sin utbildning tillbaka till skolor och skapa bestående fördelar för studenter, säger Phillip Tucciarone, en junior kemiteknik stora. Han har varit involverad i ISEP för tre terminer och designar främst och genomför “hands-on laborationer” samordna lärare. ISEP har gjort framsteg sedan dess tillkomst, enligt UB News Center. För exempelvis studenter i ISEP klassrum på Native American Magnet School, en av de två pilot skolorna, har varit ungefär “30 procent mer sannolikt än distriktet jämnåriga att uppnå kompetens på den åttonde klass stat vetenskap examen”, enligt UB News Center. Innan sådan förbättring, var Native American Magnet School på listan skolor Under registrering granskning (SURR). SURR skolor är lågpresterande skolor som inte uppfyller statliga normer, enligt New York utbildning utrikesdepartementets hemsida. Native American Magnet School kan vara stängda, sade Joseph Gardella, chef för ISEP och John och Frances Larkin professor i kemi vid UB, via e-post. Native American Magnet School togs bort från listan i 2009, fyra år efter det blev inblandad i ISEP. Se skolans akademiska förbättring bland åttonde klassare har varit en av de många minnesvärda upplevelser för Gardella.

At first it grew very quickly and then slowed down dramatically, so I fear that it isn’t getting the right care. It has long, smooth, chunky leaves (Though I’m not sure you would call them leaves) and a pale green stem. At first most of the plant was covered with a kind of hydrophobic white powder that has since worn off. If someone could provide the name of this plant that would be perfect, thanks a lot!

Mousebot Help...Plz

I have been working on the mousebot on and off for a few weeks now. Yes...weeks. Completely new to everything about it. I have everything together and after the same problem last build I am stuck. 1 motor is getting 3.3 volts. 1 motor is getting 7.78 volts. Resulting in a spinning bot. I removed the eyes (desoldered the sensor from eye stems) so ,if I am thinking correctly here, both motors should get the same voltage. Wires are bare, not touching. Again...this is the second build with same exact result, so I am doubting I soldered the same exact connection badly. I also replaced the relay and LM386 with new ones for second build. Any ideas??

How can I construct my own flexible clamps for macro photography?

I am trying to figure out how to construct my own Wimberly clamp style flexible clamp for macro photography and for holding reflectors etc. The US McClamp range look great but I can't afford the shipping fees! I can get hold of individual A clamps but need to get flexible stuff to connect them so I can clamp one end to a table or tripod leg and the other to hold a plant stem or reflector in place.  It needs to be be sturdy enough to use outside in a breeze. Any tips for where to get stuff and how I can put clamps together (I'm UK based)?

1000mph car to be powered by rubber and hair-dye.

The largest rocket fired in the UK for two decades will be lit soon, in the race to produce a land-vehicle capable of 1000mph. It will burn a mixture of solid propellant (HTPB, or hydroxyl-terminated polybutadiene, a kind of rubber) and liquid oxidiser (high-test peroxide, HTP, a highly concentrated form of hair-bleach) for 20 seconds. The Bloodhound SSC will also be powered by a jet engine from a Typhoon fighter. In the 20 second burn, the rocket will need fed with a tonne of HTP, so the pump is being powered by a Cosworth Formula 1 engine, which will become the only piston-engine running in a car at supersonic speed.  The team are planning to give the engine a major power-boost by feeding the supersonic airstream into the engine without slowing it to the usual operating speeds. The huge engineering challenges are being used to inspire students through the UK's STEM programme.

Tiny Talents - Learning Bar Tricks in the New York Times Magazine

Tiny Talentsby Virgina HeffernanOn the Web's amazing how-to sites, I am studying bar tricks. I should be learning, once and for all, how to do CPR, but all I really want to know is how to mix a Singapore Sling, palm a card and tongue-knot the stem of a maraschino cherry.The best thing about how-to sites like Howcast, eHow, WonderHowTo, Instructables, SuTree, VideoJug and ExpertVillage -- huge collections of videos that offer instruction in Chinese dining etiquette and surviving zombie attacks, plating fettuccine Alfredo and linking spins in freestyle kayaking -- is that they revive a lost era of two-bit skills, when Cross pens whirled around thumbs, Zippos burst in and out of flames and someone was forever trying to show you how.More news and press about Instructables here.
