Shale business and UK fracking hullabaloo IGas is one of very few investible plays in UK shale, and of those that are investible it is the most significant. It has, pending confirmation of new licences, about one million acres in the UK that deemed to be prospective for shale. Whilst it has only done work on small portions of that it believes it has already identified huge gas resources. Estimates put that resource at 80 trillion cubic feet of gas-initially-in-place (GIIP). If it was easy to plan, permit, drill and frack shale wells in the UK the group's valuation would be unrecognisable but currently the market gives very little credit to IGas and its shale business. Such is the uncertainty over timelines, for local planing and permitting particularly, IGas is now working through what it is describing as a five year strategy for shale. At present, this mostly involves planning applications, appeals, and a lot of waiting.

Losses of between ten and 20 sheep like Jack's can be quite regular. Charles Sercombe, you have seen a rise in the number of attacks, or your members and planing of an increase. Why is this an increasing problem? I think it is just a consequence of is a growing problem in the south-east, where urban spread is getting people closer to the countryside, meaning that dogs are sometimes let out to Rome on their own, or get out of yards.

In the past few years what has become to be known as a "Moxon Vise" has become a pretty popular workbench accessory. The basic theory behind it is that lots of joinery operations, especially dovetailing, need to be done at a higher bench height than a typical bench—which is usually set for planing operations. In Moxon's engraving from Mechanick Exercises (1678) the vise is placed at an obviously incorrect position, with no way of attaching it to the bench. Felibien, in an earlier book, (which Moxon liberally copied from) shows a group of these vises hanging from a wall behind the main workbench. I think it was the Lost Art Press' edition of The Art of Joinery that brought the vise back to the limelight and it is now a very popular accessory. Today several vendors, ourselves included, stock complete Moxon vises ready for use or hardware kits for making your own.

I am planing to use Perspex for the whole case and if anyone has and ideas please do let me know. I know there are a few off the shelf cases around but ive found that they are either 8L+ in volume with space for BIG GFX cards or uber small (the 4L NFC S4 Mini) but using external PSUs which i really want to avoid aswell. Thanks Tom

Musical instrument makers (Lutherie) use a bench that's pretty much the same as a cabinetmaker's bench, but the work is lighter overall, and the glue pot is indicative that instruments are mostly glued together rather than joined like furniture. There is a small planing stop on the bench, and of course precisely planing wood is an important part of the job. Wood engravers don't need a fancy bench, just something that will clamp the work on the surface. Here we see a holdfast and the dogholes to put it in, nothing else. The case maker's bench (for making briefcases/suitcases and the like) is pretty simple, as cases aren't very heavy. So this is a light-duty bench with a single leg vise. This bench is shown several times in the Encyclopedia, once in a workshop illustration but twice as a detail, in the joinery section and in the cabinetmaking and marquetry section.

PETALING JAYA: Barisan Nasional component parties today reiterated their stand that they will not support amendments to the Syariah Courts (Criminal Jurisdiction) Act 1965 if it is in conflict with the Federal Constitution. MCA president Datuk Seri Liow Tiong Lai (pix) said if the amendments are not in the spirit of the Federal Constitution and cause disunity, the party will be against it. He said the party is against any assembly or gathering if it tears apart the community and causes disunity in the country. He added that it was important that all parties involved act responsibly and within the law. PAS is planing a rally, the Himpunan RUU355, on Feb 18 and is targeting an attendance of 300,000. The bill is expected to be re-tabled when Parliament convenes in March. MCA plans to present a paper to the Cabinet, following a report by its legal bureau on the bill.

If you practice any kind of meditation, chances are you have your favorite spot to settle into for me, a 2x a day meditator, I have a spot that's part of my routine. Ariel Lynne was partaking in a workshop in Copenhagen when she decided to design a meditation seat for her home in Chicago that would allow her to incorporate meditation more often. The result is The Ginkgo. The sculptural chair's design began after a bike ride to a park in Copenhagen with a sandy area that formed impressions when she sat down. That planted the start of her immersion into Scandinavian design, with inspiration coming from Hans Wegner's Shell Chair, as well as the works of Verner Panton and Bjørnrgaard. The process began by milling and planing raw lumber 18 different profiles to be exact. After rigorous sanding and sculpting, The Ginkgo's curvy silhouette was born with a built-in handle for easy movement.

Revs build and die slowly, but the warbling soundtrack and muscular performance distract you from the slightly lazy response. The nose also rears up under acceleration like a planing boat, and that just feels cool. The V8 is good for 410bhp and 391lb ft, making the Mustang comfortably the most powerful car here. Ford claims 0-62mph in 4.8sec – which also makes it the quickest – and 155mph limited. At £34,995 it just undercuts the M235i. This is a different sort of Mustang to the ones that came before it. It was designed to work all around the world because it is being sold globally, and rather than a live rear axle it uses a sophisticated multi-link arrangement. You feel that most when driving away from a bumpy corner because traction really is very strong indeed. In fact, if you havent deliberately unsettled the car on the way into the corner, you wont be able to persuade the rear wheels to break traction on the way out, no matter how much throttle you throw at them.

If you became a follower of our Instagram this past year, you're probably familiar with the term "process porn", or, a short, highly satisfying short clip of any kind manual or automatic manufacturing process. Whether it's a highly satisfying video of a woodworker planing an extraordinarily thin wood shaving from a 2x4, an expertly or sensuously glazed pot or a mesmerizing example of glassblowing, chances are any type of process you could think of is most likely floating around on our Instagram page . Here are 10 of our most popular examples of #processporn from the year 2016. 10. Inertia welding Whether you're well familiar with the process or not, inertia welding (also known as friction welding) is pretty undeniably a hypnotizing sight. 9. Glassblowing We had several entertaining glassblowing videos on the Instagram this past year, but getting to see how they executed the groovy multicolored decoration on this pitcher made this video a clear standout from the rest.

I have great respect for contractors who do on-site work. I would be a terrible contractor, and here's why: In my shop, I have every tool I need, but when I have to hit the road to do work, I overthink my selection and bring far too many tools—always missing the one I really need. I'm sure this is just an experience thing, and if I had to do more work outside my own shop I would get better. For now however, I'm a hopeless mess. This afternoon I will be planing a Douglas Fir beam at the J. Gibson McIlvain lumber yard that is too big for any of our moulders and planers in the millworks. It is a custom sized roof beam for a timber framer that is 18 feet long, 10? thick, and 14? wide. Because of the non-standard dimensions, we had to bandsaw it to size. Since the customer is using this in a highly visible space, he does not want the tool marks in evidence.

On this weekends broadcast of on Fox News Sunday, President-elect Donald Trump said he was not planing to take a wrecking ball to President Barack Obamas legacy but instead he will attempt to do whats right. Host Chris Wallace asked if it was fair to say he was going to take a wrecking ball to the Obama legacy. Trump responded, No, no, no. I dont want to do that at all. I just want whats right. On the EPA, you cant get things approved. People are waiting in line for 15 years before they get rejected, Okay. Thats why people dont want to invest in this country. You look at whats going on and you can look at a jobs report, but take a look at the real jobs report, which are the millions of people that gave up looking for work, and theyre not considered in that number thats less than 5 percent.

(credit: US Navy) This has not been a good year for the US Navy's newest ships. Four ships from the Navy's two classes of Littoral Combat Ship (LCS)—the high-tech, modular warships that were supposed to be the future of naval warfare in areas close to shore—have suffered major engineering problems, including breaking down at sea. Three of the LCS ships that suffered engineering failures were from the Freedom class, ships built by Lockheed Martin for the LCS program: USS Freedom , USS Fort Worth, and USS Milwaukee. The program has also seen other setbacks, including the USS Montgomery (an Independence -class LCS built by Austal USA) suffering a cracked hull after bumping the wall of a Panama Canal lock. But the LCS' engineering woes may not be the end of the trouble its shipbuilding programs are facing. As defense writer David Axe reports , David Giles, a British aerospace engineer-turned-marine architect, has filed a lawsuit accusing the Navy of stealing elements of the Freedom 's design from work he did to commercialize a wave-piercing, "semi-planing" hull—work Giles patented in the early 1990s.
