While it’s great to recycle as much as possible, you may be surprised to find out that some of the items you’ve been throwing into your recycling bin don’t actually belong there. While many people recycle items to try and cut back on waste or even make money, putting nonrecyclable items with recyclable items contaminates the process. And a lot of items that are widely presumed to be recyclable actually aren’t (pizza boxes, we’re looking at you), so it can get confusing at times. If you want to recycle more efficiently and easily, keep reading for 17 things you may have been recycling for years that you actually shouldn’t be (and spread the word).

Taskers reveals most common British living room fit-out

The furniture retailer says it has identified the average UK living room and, using online data gathered from its own website, has unveiled a photo-fit of the nation’s most likely lounge. The photo-fit was created using sales and search data over the last 12 months from Taskers.com, revealing that the British public is most likely to have a grey two-seater sofa, a colourful accent chair, an industrial style coffee table, and vintage style floor lamps. More than a quarter of Brits (28%) opted for a grey sofa in the last 12 months, making the neutral tone the 2019 colour of choice, while the once commonplace black leather sofa was the least popular style of the last year (3%) – seeing the biggest decline in popularity. However, the popular and subtle Scandi sofa designs were offset with pops of colour, with midnight blue (10%) and emerald green (8%) making the top five sofa and chair colour choices. Single accent chairs in bright colours have seen a 30% surge in sales, making them one of this year’s must-have home items, says Taskers. Despite being a desirable luxury, corner group sofas made up just 9% of the furniture retailer’s sales, with furniture-buyers more likely to opt for...

Travel hacks for your next holiday including pill boxes for jewellery and charging your phone through the TV

News Corp is a network of leading companies in the worlds of diversified media, news, education, and information services. FORGETTING where your car is parked, not having in-flight entertainment and your jewellery getting all tangled up are some of the everyday gripes that holidaymakers face. But as these genius hacks reveal, the solution could be surprisingly easy – and they will leave you wondering why you didn’t think of it yourself. It can be difficult to remember where your car is after two weeks on holiday, especially when there are so many different numbers and letters for the zones and floors. Taking a photo of the zone sign can help – so you don’t spend hours walking around the car park after a long flight. While bottles containing liquids over 100ml are banned from being taken through security, empty water bottles are fine. You can then just fill it up on the other side, without having to fork out for a new bottle at airport prices. There is even a handy website that reveals which airports have free water fountains and where they can be found. The hairdryer supplied by a hotel is often very basic with no dials or switches – just an on but...

Machine-Agnostic VR Comes to Sterile Manufacturing Education

You’ve heard of OEMs offering augmented reality tools, but virtual reality has come to pharmaceutical processing training. How does improved critical thinking impact the bottom line? If we know that teaching operators to a test or a specific machine doesn’t work that well, why hasn’t training changed in decades? One company set out to change the game with on-demand virtual reality (VR) training, which offers promise in teaching the concepts of the process resulting in more well-rounded staff that can move to other machines and facilities. Virtuosi® is a training platform developed by Quality Executive Partners, Inc. (QxP), a management consulting firm specializing in compliance consulting for the life sciences industry. The company’s leadership has extensive backgrounds as former executives at global pharmaceutical firms. “In the pharmaceutical industry, the way we educate people has regressed a bit since many of us started our careers, myself in the ’90s,” says Brian Duncan, Chief Operations Officer at QxP. “We saw that foundational education just wasn’t being done anymore. Predominantly it’s not really education as much as it is teaching people to follow a procedur...

Modern slavery is being uncovered by satellites and AI

If you turn on television news at any given moment, you’ll probably be barraged with messages of doom and gloom that assert the world’s going to hell in a handbasket. This isn’t true. In fact, many of the metrics we might use to assess whether the world is doing well or poorly lean towards the former: the number of people living in abject poverty has plummeted, literacy rates are up the world over, and violence has been decreasing steadily for centuries now. But there is at least one way in which the world is objectively getting worse: Earth is today host to 40.3 million slaves, more than there has ever been in human history. One in 4 of these are children, and 71 percent are female. With more slaves on the planet than there are people in the country of Canada, one would think there would be more evidence of this exploitation. But recent studies are revealing that the evidence is there — it just requires a new perspective to see. Slavery takes place in the background, but its fingerprints are all over the products modern society relies on. Textiles, electronics, agriculture, and even brick-making all involve slavery to one degree or another. A growing body of r...

What alcohol does to your body in the short and long term

Most Australian adults will have at least an occasional drink and about half of us are regular drinkers. But it’s easy to underestimate the health impacts, and experts believe there is too much risky drinking. The alcohol in drinks is called ethanol (also known as ethyl alcohol). It is made from sugars in grains, fruits and vegetables. Many people underestimate how many standard drinks they’ve had because typical servings are generally larger than standard drink size. When you drink alcohol, it enters the bloodstream within minutes and almost 90 per cent is absorbed within an hour. If you have food in your stomach this slows the rate of absorption down. It travels to every part of the body, especially the brain, liver and kidneys. You walk in the door after a crappy day at work and the bottle of red on the kitchen bench is calling your name. One or two glasses won’t hurt, right? Because women’s bodies are generally smaller than men’s and contain less fluid, a given amount of alcohol produces a higher blood alcohol level in females. For similar reasons, adolescents and elderly people tend to have higher blood alcohol levels than young and middle-age...

Currently on the market there are two major 3D phone players: the HTC EVO 3D and

Currently on the market there are two major 3D phone players: the HTC EVO 3D and the LG Optimus 3D, both laden with dual cameras and autostereoscopic displays. However when you head over to Japan, a third option becomes available – the Sharp Aquos SH-12C; a little known 3D-capable device, powered by Android and also available for import into Western countries. Thanks to our good friends at MobiCity we can take a look at how well the Aquos SH-12C fares in a western environment, how well the dual 8 megapixel rear cameras function, how novel having a 3D display and what it’s like to use a 3D phone from another region. The MobiCity specifications page was a bit light-on with the specifications for the Aquos, however we did manage to dig up what is contained inside the device. The standout feature of the Aquos here would have to be both the 4.2” qHD 3D display and the dual 8-megapixel cameras which best both the EVO 3D and Optimus 3D and their 5 MP offerings. We were a bit disappointed to discover that there is only a single-core inside the device, but at 1.4 GHz with 512 MB of RAM it should hopefully be plenty. The SH-12C does come with the correct 3G bands for Europe and Australia ...
