Man Builds Stunning Off Grid Shipping Container Home on Mountain Top

Adam from HoneyBox (http://www.honeybox.ca/) built this stunning off-grid shipping container cabin on top of a mountain in British Columbia, Canada. The cabin is built with 3 x 20 foot shipping containers. The middle container is bolted to a cement block foundation using twist locks, and the two outer containers are cantilevered using lashing rods. He designed the cabin to take full advantage of the panoramic mountain view by covering almost an entire wall with windows, although he admits this is not the most energy efficient design. He's got 800 Watts of solar panels to power his 12-volt system for lights, outlets, and a water pump. He has a wood stove for heat, propane for the fridge, hot water, and cooktop, and he has a composting toilet from Sun-Mar. For water, he has a well and a rainwater catchment system, and he uses both to fill 2 large water tanks for showering and washing dishes but he doesn't yet have a filter for the rainwater and the well water is ferrous so he brings in drinking water for now. One of the main challenges of building with shipping containers is trying to avoid water leaks along the seams where the containers are joined together. Once the clamps are in place, there's a 3 inch gap between containers. Adam installed a mechanical gutter along the seams on the roof to divert water off the roof, and he has a second gutter underneath it to catch any leaks from the first gutter. So far he hasn't had any water issues. You can avoid leaks by building a roof over the containers. The cabin is insulated with spray foam insulation, which adheres to the steel walls and helps avoid condensation problems that might arise with fibreglass batts. Adam built this structure as a studio to demonstrate one of the many ways that shipping containers can be used to create unique living spaces. He doesn't live in it full-time.

View full lesson: https://ed.ted.com/lessons/how-do-solar-panels-work-richard-komp The Earth intercepts a lot of solar power: 173,000 terawatts. That’s 10,000 times more power than the planet’s population uses. So is it possible that one day the world could be completely reliant on solar energy? Richard Komp examines how solar panels convert solar energy to electrical energy. Lesson by Richard Komp, animation by Globizco.

In replace for that, I filled in the "Reliability Section" (in my rubric) with the average reliability for the Hyundai brand as a whole. Secondly, I gave the Ioniq the safety rating that Hyundai expects the Ioniq to achieve for the "Safety Section"! As a result, the overall score may be slightly skewed.

SOUTH AFRICA: FLAME THROWING DEVICE TO COMBAT CAR JACKING (V)

SOUTH AFRICA: FLAME THROWING DEVICE TO COMBAT CAR JACKING (V)

English/Nat VOICED BY: Louise Bates With car-jackings increasingly common in South Africa, one inventor has created the ultimate deterrent - a flame-thrower. When it's fitted to the side of a car, the 'blaster' system send out jets of fire to stop any would-be hijackers in their tracks. VOICE-OVER: 0005: The heat is on for South Africa's car thieves. 0007: It looks like a James Bond movie. 0009: But the inventor of the Blaster system, Charles Fourie, believes he's found a way to deal with car-jackers... 0015: SOUNDBITE: (English) "This car is a coded key pad, or just a key switch on the dashboard. When it's turned it'll show that the system is now armed and ready for activation. Underneath here we have a foot switch; the system will function for as long as you keep it down. And just quickly to explain how it works. When this foot switch is pressed, two things happen. One, a 14-thousand volt spark would appear here in this nozzle, and then you have these four jets here shooting out gas. Liquid gas from the gas bottle in the boot. Liquid gas, as soon as it exits over the spark here, will ignite and a ball of flame will shoot out of both side of the vehicle. Incapacitating the hijackers immediately." 0111: Amazingly perhaps, the system's legal in South Africa - provided the driver is acting in self defence as depicted in this mock-up. 0020: About 25 vehicles so far have the Blaster, but no one has yet tested the system for real.

CIA Tesla Gun - Death Ray Energy EMP Ion Cannon

CIA Tesla Gun - Death Ray Energy EMP Ion Cannon

This Pulse CIA EMP cannon was built in 2010 by Army General Alex Melnikov and Military Engineer Alex Williams in San Francisco, CA. Tested by me Igor Kryan aka Alexander Williams. After tests we had to replace all cell phones, computers, light bulbs in the building. It can easily disable truck, tank or small building. In 2013 CIA agent Rostislav Kryzhanovsky and Navy Engineer James Garcia commissioned 100 times more powerful truck version of this energy weapon in Fresno, CA. The beauty of this top secret weapon that regular EMP bomb is blown only once and target everything inside its circle while this pulse EMP gun can be fired for precise selective targeting and can be used and re-used 1,000s times. The truck version can easily disable a large building, aircraft carrier or nuclear power plant. The reason I disclose this top secret is to make Americans aware that at least 2 of these truck sized devices are currently in hands of rogue CIA operatives who plan to use it against Americans for a new false flag attack next year and to blame Russians and start a new war against internal and external enemies.
