Composite boat builders looking for lighter weights are often also looking for lower costs in materials, labor, and propulsion, too, while some builders have found they must actually pay more for materials and labor.
At IBEX 2012, Scott Lewit (Structural Composites Inc.) took part in a panel discussing the spectrum of lightweight boatbuilding and reported on his company's on lightweight composites in military applications. Lewit joins us now with the final results of research that SCI has completed for the Navy on this topic.
The latest issue of ProBoat includes an article by Bob Lacovara that you will want to read before you tune in for this week’s show. We’ll have ProBoat Senior Editor Aaron Porter as well as Bob on the line as we discuss his article, and try to answer your questions about this take on marine composites.
Well gluten is the protein component that's found in wheat in the wheat family. Although Gluten is singular word it actually refers to two proteins. And those are Gliadin and Glutolin. And what happens is these proteins act as a binding agent. So they bind food together. And the reason that they used so wide spread in processed foods is simply because they act a binding unit to make food taster better.Though "true gluten" is sometimes defined as being specific to wheat, gluten is often said to be part of other cereal grains — including rye, barley and various crossbreeds — because these grains also contain protein composites made from prolamins and glutelins.
Steve Colbern is a chemist and material scientist with extensive experience in carbon nanotube technology, controlled atmosphere tube furnaces, and sol-gel chemistry. Steve is a graduate from UCLA. His goal is to use," Interdisciplinary, out-of-the-box approaches to find breakthrough, novel solutions to scientific and industrial problems". Synthesis and characterization of novel nanomaterials, particularly metal nanoparticle filled and coated single-walled CNT, Casimir Force effects on nanomaterials, efficient methods of carbon nanotube purification. Steve Colbern is currently working on carbon nanotube research, including CNT/metal matrix composites, carbon nanotube wafer materials, and novel carbon nanotube purification methods with unprecedented efficiency. Steve Colbern appeared on Coast to Coast AM Radio on Friday night along with Dr. Roger Leir, author of “The Alien and the Scalpel”. Steve Colbern has analyzed several of Leir's patient's implants and is the scientist affiliated with CERO, using scientific equipment to scan self-identified abductees with possible implants and other anomalies. These objects have special properties and to emit radio signals from within the patient and they appear to transmit on satellite and aeronautical communication frequencies. Steve will be discussing his findings with us.
Composite life-cycle issues are taking center stage as research and development activities are on the rise, developing second life uses for composite waste material and functionally obsolete composite parts.
As technology allows for the successful recycling of composite parts, experts anticipate that industry will embrace the business opportunity of turning functionally obsolete or inoperable composite parts into
Co-host Donna Smith welcomes Contech Composites founder, Kevin Hodge to the program to discuss the many aspects involved in the increase of modern day diseases, affecting millions of Americans and threatening their livelihood.
Topics will include: GMO’s, is the FDA helping? Where are our seeds coming from? The buyout of agriculture lands, and what is wrong with the American diet?
Focus will also be placed on many of the causes, how to prevent disease and the cure for such issues.
A few solutions discussed will include: What should we be eating to cure and prevent these types of diseases? What is Hydro Aquaponics and how can they help? And how truck stops could use small agriculture to offset costs of shipping and serve customers fresh, organic produce providing truckers with better health.
Many thanks again to the clients and supporters of Brian Holiday-El and the growing audience of the Sepiasexual BodyTalkLive! Just as I promised, no need to wait another month because HERE WE GO AGAIN! On Episode 1 of BodyTalkLive, the 6 Sexual Doors were briefly explored and those who tuned in we're finally able to receive the key to correctly engaging the uniqueness of their own sexuality and that of the other. On Episode 2, the 7 Year Cycles underlying the changes an individual goes through internally and externally launched a discussion which climaxed with a Body Talk on Composites (Unions), using the Body Graphs of Joe Budden and Tahiry Jose, giving the listeners part of the information and perspective needed to come to a decision of, loving it, learning it, or leaving it. Our Caller, Phyllis, who made it through the line despite the technical difficulties, reported that what she, "RECEIVED was On Point and Needed."
I surrender to the beautiful feedback and responses from the listeners and you all are right, an hour is simply not long enough, so, the next show will run for at least 90 Minutes and as the audience grows as it has over the last two episodes, I will extend the time again and eventually committ to perhaps airing during prime time. It's been spectacular growing with you all over the last 2 Episodes and I'm earnestly looking forward to growing and learning and sharing with all of you. Thank you again! BHoli
Ellen Lee: Impassioned Environmentalist Believes Sustainability Equals Sensibility in Both Vehicles and Life
Who: Ellen Lee, technical expert, plastics research Role: Researcher working to replace traditional, petroleum-based plastics with alternative composites that are better for the environment and the customer
Did you know? Lee enjoys reading cookbooks like most people read novels
Visit Ellen Lee at her home in Ann Arbor, Mich., and chances are better than average she’ll be outside, working in the garden.
“We grow...a little bit of everything,” she says, laughing. “I love fresh vegetables. We have 10 raised beds, and that’s not enough. Every year, I say, ‘I need more room!’’’
Lee’s green thumb shouldn’t surprise anyone. At Ford, Lee is part of a unique team that works to make products more sustainable through science and technology innovation. The team researches traditional, petroleum-based plastics and looks to Mother Nature to create alternate composites that are durable, lightweight and better for the environment.
These all-new composite recipes include more natural ingredients, such as soy oil, wheat straw fiber, cellulose and the sugars in corn, sugarbeets and sugarcane.
“One of our biggest success stories so far is soy foam,” Lee says. All Ford North American-built vehicles use bio-based foam in seat cushions and backs. Ford’s use of bio-based foam has helped the company reduce its petroleum oil use by more than 3 million pounds annually and carbon dioxide emissions by more than 15 million pounds.
Even more recently, Ford and Lear Corporation introduced a new head restraint foam with 25 percent of the polyol replaced with soy.
Mike Bergen and Mark Bishop join us with a preview of the IBEX 2013 seminar on this process which offers and interesting alternative to VARTM. Is this the next new boatbuilding technology? What advantages does it have over VARTM? What are the disadvantages? Join us to ask the questions. (But you may need to go to IBEX to hear the answers.)

Diana P. Trepkov is officially a Certified Forensic Artist through the International Association for Identification. She has been involved in 156 Law Enforcement cold cases throughout Canada and the USA which involved her forensic artwork techniques such as; composites, 2D and 3D facial reconstructions, post-mortems, surveillance video drawing and age progressions. Trepkov recently helped to solve 4 high profile cases in the USA.
Ms. Trepkov has appeared on national television shows such as CTV Canada AM, CTV news, CP24 news, Global news, Mystery TV, GTA’S Most Wanted, ABC CH 15 Phoenix, Forensic Artist Expert for CNN HEADLINE NEWS – NANCY GRACE and was featured as the cover story for P.I. Magazine, which is an international magazine.
In March 2010 Diana did an age progression drawing (well, 3 of them, actually) of Jessie. She did one similar in looks as before she disappeared, just a bit older; one with a split hair style in case she had changed her hair colour or style; and one as she would look after 4 years as a human trafficking victim ... then Diana did another one in March 2012. Then when Diana wrote her book, FACELESS, VOICELESS, From Search to Closure, she included Jessie in the book, and she also included Jessie's pictures on the cover. In January 2011 I was invited to the launch of the anti-human trafficking organization Alliance Against Modern Slavery in Toronto, ON, which is near to where Diana lives. She came to the conference, and we got to meet in person. WEBSITE: http://www.forensicsbydiana.com DIANA'S WORK ON JESSIE FOSTER's CASE: http://www.forensicsbydiana.com/jessie.htm
