As many as 15% of caregivers must travel an hour or more when caring for an aging parent with dementia, according to the Alzheimer’s Association’s latest Facts and Figures report. Long-distance caregiving can lead to difficulties with communication, coordinating care and handling expenses, not to mention the emotional burden of caring for someone who lives far away. As a result, caregivers have had to come up with creative ways of addressing the problem of staying connected with their loved ones and coordinating with other family members.

Huskers bring the heat to improve biodegradable plastics

Introducing a simple step to the production of plant-derived, biodegradable plastic could improve its properties while overcoming obstacles to manufacturing it on a commercial scale, says new research from Nebraska.

HUSKERS BRING THE HEAT TO IMPROVE BIODEGRADABLE PLASTICS

Lincoln, Nebraska, Aug. 31, 2017 – Introducing a simple step to the production of plant-derived, biodegradable plastic could improve its properties while overcoming obstacles to manufacturing it commercially, says new research from the University of Nebraska-Lincoln and Jiangnan University.
That step? Bringing the heat.
Nebraska’s Yiqi Yang and colleagues found that raising the temperature of bio-plastic fibers to several hundred degrees Fahrenheit, then slowly allowing them to cool, greatly improved the bio-plastic’s normally lackluster resistance to heat and moisture.
Its thermal approach also allowed the team to bypass solvents and other expensive, time-consuming techniques typically needed to manufacture a commercially viable bio-plastic, the study reported.
Yang said the approach could allow manufacturers of corn-derived plastic – such as a Cargill plant in Blair – to continuously produce the biodegradable material on a scale that at least approaches petroleum-based plastic, the industry standard. Recent research estimates about 90 percent of U.S. plastic goes unrecycled.
“This clean technology makes possible (the) industrial-scale production of commercializable bio-based plastics,” the authors reported.

Welcome to TrumpDiaries – Trump Diaries

 What You’ll Find Here – TrumpDiaries is an academic blog that explains what Trump is doing here in Washington. You’ll gain a basic understanding, but I also help readers find out where to go if they want more details.

I want to inform. I also feel there’s a real need to untangle the issues so we feel more confident we actually know what’s going on!

I explain the effects of Trump’s actions, what WE can do about it, and most of all, remind people that we have power and that we can slow him down and even stop him.

I want to educate, support, and provide a jumping off point for people who are just starting to learn about these really important issues. Once you feel you’ve wrapped your head around how crazy things are, I’ll help you find out where to go for more details.

Everything I write about is available here, or you can scroll to the bottom for a list of my recent posts.

Purpose

TrumpDiaries was created to make sure that we never forget how good things were before Trump changed everything. Not everything is bad, only about 99% of it.

Just like everything else in life, some days will be really hard. It’ll be tempting to accept things as normal, to lower your standards so that you can actually feel good about what’s going on. However, you need to always remember that Trump is NOT NORMAL.

In 2020, we want to vote for someone who isn’t just better than Trump but WAY better than Trump and maybe even better than we’ve ever had!

There’s gonna be a day when someone who cares actually asks us what we want, when we have a chance to vote for someone who’s going to pay attention to us, and I don’t ever want to think that’s a fantasy.

For me, writing it all down allows me to remember the way things used to be. If I ever have trouble remembering, I’ll have something to refer to.

I hope you enjoy TrumpDiaries. Please remember that you are worth it, your voice matters, and that you are stronger than you think.
