Dog food buying guide

Dog food buying guide

Feeding your dog properly is important so that it can stay in shape for the longest. With lots of brands of dog food currently on the market, choosing something that your canine buddy likes and good for them as well is no easy task. Hence, in this article, we will give you a brief guideline and some tips to keep in mind when you go and search for the perfect alimentation of your man’s best friend.

Premium or not

Premium

As the name states it, premium food is a lot better than conventional one because of the higher protein content and the better raw ingredients. Cheap dog foods are usually stuffed with fillers and cheap ingredients to make them look bigger. That being said, if money is not a problem, you should go for this type of dog food. On the other hand, if your budget is tight, then you should buy something suitable to your pocket. Your dog will not love you less because of this.

Wet or dry food

While wet food has better taste and smell, its composition is 80% moisture and 20% goods, which means your dog cannot get much nutrition out of it. Plus, it can sometimes be messy and difficult to transport as well.

Wet food

On the other hand, dry foods have a much longer expiration date. In addition, they are easy to transport and to measure for each portion.

So with all that taken into consideration, you may now have a clearer idea of what to buy for you loyal friend.

Age

Just like human eating different types of food at different stages of life, the same goes for your pet. Puppies’ diet is completely different from that of a full-grown dog. With that in mind, you can narrow down your search by stating the dog’s life stage when buying online or with the specialist when buying offline.

Flavor

Dogs are as complicated as human when it comes to this matter. With a matrix of flavor available right now, choosing the perfect one for your dog might give you a bit of a headache. Thankfully, these three criteria will help you narrow down your search: your dog’s preference, easy digestibility, and benefits. Each flavor brings a different beneficial effect so it is better to feed your canine buddy what he is missing.

Flavor

If right now you are at a lost and don’t know what to buy, take your dog for a shopping trip and have him try all the different flavors. You two get to spend some quality time together and your dog gets what he wants. Win-win, right?

Buying

There are two ways to do this, which are online and offline purchasing

With the online method, you can compare prices from different shops with just the clicks of your mouse and have everything delivered to you whenever you want. However, the downside is that you cannot possibly know if your dog will love the food you buy for him or not. Therefore, this is not highly recommended if you haven’t bought food for your dog before.

With the offline method, you can bring your dog alone and have him taste the many different types of food to his heart content. Plus, you can ask the store owner for some personal tips and tricks on how to feed your dog as well.

Key elements for an awesome aquarium

Key elements for an awesome aquarium

How are you lately my fellow aquarium maniac? So for those who are still new with an aquarium, it may be hard to decide what’s best to do for their tank. What to prepare, what to add, how to decorate, and how to keep it clean. Well, I’ve got the ultimate answer for you guys. Just read my post carefully and I’m sure you’ll find out what you need.

Fish tankHere are the key elements that you must consider when choosing and using an aquarium.

Size and capacity

There are lots of choices when it comes to this. It could be a small size tank that could fit on your table. Or a large tank that you could recreate an ocean world inside. So make sure you choose the right one. I personally recommend you guys start with the big one if you have space for it. By starting with this tank, you’ll have lots to learn and you’ll get better faster.

Small fish tankAnd a large tank like this will allow you to have more space for your fishes and decoration. But if you decide to go for the small one, I suggest you plant a large plant in the middle of the tank. Since these type of tank won’t be large enough for a filter or air pumper. The plant will help increase the oxygen and purify the water, so it’ll be great to have one of them.

Decoration

Simple ornaments and decoration stuff like sand, gravel, rock, and plant are great for the job. Spread the sand at the bottom of your tank, make sure they’re thick enough for the fish to lay on and dig in since they love it. And also put some shiny gravel and rock around your tank. It’ll look much better with them. Also, plant some aquatic plants in your tank, it’ll look great, I can guarantee that. There are two option, plastic one, and the real one. I prefer real one because of all the benefit that they brought to my aquarium. But for beginners, you could try the plastic one since real plants are hard to take care of. But also keep in mind that the plastic plants may not good for your fishes.

Fishes

Well, it’s not like I’m going to raise only fishes in my aquarium. It’s just because I don’t know how to name this part. Okay, back to the topic.

Fishes When I choose fishes (or other sea creatures) for my aquarium, I always choose those that can work well together or at least they won’t kill each other. In this matter, you should do some research first. And don’t choose fishes that have different sizes. Because the big one could hurt the small one even when it doesn’t mean to. And remember don’t raise turtle in your fish tank. It’s the worst mistake that some could make. Because turtle love eating fish, you may wake up finding your fishes are all dead.

Equipment

Two of the most important devices that every aquarium need is an air pumper and a water filter. An air pumper will help increase the amount of oxygen in your aquarium. It’s important to have one of this in your fish tank. And the water filter will help clean the excessive dirt in the tank. I suggest you choose a canister filter for this job since this one has both the biologic and mechanic filter function. The biologic filter will get rid of the ammonia that forms up from the fish urine. And the mechanic filter will remove all the dirt in the water. You should click the “best canister filter 2017” button to get access to the top-rated products.

That’s it for today, I’ll be back with more cool aquarium ideas.

Washing machine water hose

Firstly, check to see if the connection between the hose and the machine is secure. Then, ensure that there are at least four inches of space between your machine and the water connection point. Next, check for any cracks or leaks around the connection point. If there are too much, you should do something about it, either patching the leaks or buying a new one and replace it. If you have used your hose for more than 5 years, it is highly recommended that you replace it with a braided stainless steel one. It may sound expensive but it can prevent a catastrophe from happening.

Fridge coil

This part is usually found underneath or behind the fridge. It can also easily build up debris, dust or pet hair, which could cause your fridge to work harder and increase the power consumption. If this happens you should use a coil brush to clean it. For newer model, manufactures tend to encase the coil so cleaning is not necessary. For older ones, it is highly advisable that you clean the coil twice or more times a year.

Dryer

If it takes a long time to dry your clothes or if your dryer is too hot while working, something is not right. This usually means that your dryer is obstructed, the lint in the trap that is. To fix it, you just need to form the habit of cleaning the lint trap after each time you use the machine. It’s easy and it won’t take you long.

Sliding door

If you have to muscle up to slide the door open, then there is probably debris and dirt in its path. Start by removing the door. For each door, there is a specific way to open so it is highly recommended that you google it first. Then, lay the door flat and have a good look at the wheels. If the wheels are broken, replace them. If not, clean them thoroughly and also the top and bottom of the sliding track. After that, apply a bit of lubricant and put the door back in place.

Holes in the wall

Cracks on the walls make your house look unpleasant to the eyes and if not taken care properly, they could get wider and something bad will happen. To cover up the cracks, you need to create the following mixture: cement, lime and sand. Then, force it into the cracks and let time do its job.

Sites like 123movies

Sites like 123movies

Watching movies has never been easier with the help of internet. You only need an Internet-connecting device and a decent internet connection. Here are the best sources to watch movies online for free. That’s right, completely free and all the sites are updated until June 2017.

Youtube

It’s probably the biggest site to watch not only movies but all types of video content. Here you can find movies, tv shows, personal video at all types and category. The content is freely distributed and you don’t have to pay for anything. Just have to watch a few ads before get to see the content you want.

Crackle

This is one of those officially legal sources that allow users to watch free movies online with you charging any extra. The site gets their movies from Sony Picture due to an agreement that allows the website to freely distribute all Sony Pictures movies on it. You can find all types of movies and series that have been produced by Sony and watch them without paying anything.

Popcornflix

Just like Crackle, this site gets their constantly flowing movies source from Screen Media Ventures. The contents vary from action, comedy, horror, sci-fi, document and TV shows. Pretty much all types of movies that’ll satisfy your need. And they’re all free to watch.

CmoviesHD

123Movies

The site is considered a piracy form like torrent by officials but is loved by users since they get to watch tons of free movies here. All the content are from other sites and 123movies doesn’t own any movies on their server. That means there is a whole lot of rooms for developers to update their movies library without any restriction. For the record, this is one of my favorite movies streaming sites.

TubiTV

It has thousands of free movies and TV shows at all genres. Action, horror, comedy, documentary, sci-fi and much more. All of them are free to watch and the website only makes money through advertisements. But also, for this reason, the sites don’t have too many films on it and it doesn’t update new movies like other sites. It usually takes 1-2 years for you to watch a newly released movie on the sites. So you might want to have some alternations.

Cmovieshd

Cmovieshd works just like 123Movies. It only contains links that lead to content from other sites like mediafire.com, sevenload.com, zshare.net, youtube, and others. And that’s why they could sustain and keep updating a lot of new titles each day. You can find both newly released and old movies on the site. These titles vary from horror, action, documentary, comedy,… to TV shows and series.

Public Domain Torrents

The site works like places that share movies, TV show and others content under public domain form. And since it is, watching movies from the site is completely legal. The only thing that bothers me is that you’ll have to wait for them to update the domain links to watch.

Internet Archive Movie

The site works like Public Domain Torrents. All the content fall in the name of the public domain so they’re free to stream and watch, just like when you’re downloading the file from torrent. The content varies bases on the shared link from the site. Be sure to update frequently from IAM website for the most demanding movies.

Conclusion

Although free movies can be so easily to watch, you should always be aware of the risks that these sites can bring. Always stream movies in incognito mode and turn on the firewall to detect any dangerous malware or virus programs that could harm your computer.

Use Solar Technology To Provide Electricity

Use Solar Technology To Provide Electricity

Learn about the forms of power supply

Using the national electricity grid: This is the most economically efficient solution, but this solution can only be applied to the localities near the national grid.

– Diesel generators are commonly used due to the low investment cost and easy operation. However, the use of fuels such as gasoline and oil to run the machine has a great impact on the environment, and the cost of gasoline is now rising quite high. Therefore, the use of diesel generators in the day is not much, mainly serving when there is demand and during peak hours.

– Using renewable energy sources: Now the exploitation of renewable energy sources (especially from the potential energy sources of small hydropower and solar power is very common in remote areas). The national grid has brought about remarkable social efficiency. In this article, I will help you known about benefits of solar energy. It is a clean and green energy for our earth.

Application of solar power technology in mountainous areas

Currently, in the hilly area, there are two main types of PMT power supply models, which are independent power supply models (outside grid) and national grid power supply, models.

Independent power supply models are off-grid, self-generating, and directly supplied to consumers. This power supply model uses two main types of technology: independent power supply technology using MT batteries and independent power supply technology that combine MT power with other types of power sources such as wind power, Biomass, diesel power. The combination of these sources depends on demand, additional load characteristics, potential renewable energy sources in place.

Solar power stations installed in mountainous areas are mostly silicon crystalline (polycrystalline and monocrystalline) batteries because they are highly efficient solar cells and are widely used in the market. However, silicon crystal cell technology has a relatively high cost, and the ability to work in real conditions in this area is reduced when the weather is not favorable .

Recently, with the advancement of science and technology, thin-film solar cell technology has been gradually perfected technically and produced and used in many countries in the world such as USA, Germany, Hungary … The thin-film solar cell technology, which is not very efficient with silicon crystal batteries, has the advantage of being inexpensive and can work on some unfavorable terrains and can work right away. Even when the weather conditions are unfavorable (cloudiness, high ambient air temperature …). Some experimental results have demonstrated in the same technical conditions (solar radiation, the angle of incidence, weather conditions, power, time of use) of the output of the crystal battery Silicon and Thin film solar cells are quite similar.
