  • New Briquetted Iron Plant for East Toledo, OH (1.200 const. jobs & 130 perm. jobs at $100K year)

    06/19/2017 11:55:35 PM PDT · by 2ndDivisionVet · 9 replies
    Cleveland's Cliffs Natural Resources Inc. announced it will build the Midwest's first-ever plant producing hot briquetted iron used in steelmaking. The $700 million project is expected to break ground in early 2018 on the Ironville site in East Toledo, a former Brownfield site. The project is scheduled to create 1,200 construction jobs and 130 permanent jobs. Hourly jobs at the plant will pay about $100,000, said Lourenco Goncalves, chairman, president and chief executive officer of the 170-year-old mining and natural resources company. The plant will be Cliffs' first facility in Ohio and is to begin production in 2020. "We got...
  • NASA to explore space rock worth so much money it would DESTROY world economy

    THE American space agency is planning to send a spacecraft to a lump of metal in space worth quadrillions of dollars. The 200km-wide asteroid is currently orbiting the sun between Mars and Jupiter. It is made up of various precious metals such as iron, nickel and gold. Experts believe the iron alone in the rock would be worth $10,000 quadrillion – enough to cause the world’s economy, worth $73.7 trillion, to promptly collapse altogether.
  • The Earth's core has a 'jet stream' of molten iron

    12/21/2016 11:18:23 AM PST · by BenLurkin · 21 replies
    You know jet streams as fast-flowing air currents in the atmosphere that can help predict temperature and help planes fly faster. According to data sent back by a trio of ESA satellites called Swarm, though, there's also a jet stream deep beneath our planet's surface, and it's made of molten iron. A team of European scientists have discovered the jet stream in the Earth's outer core that's located 1,900 miles underneath its crust. It moves at 25 miles per year, three times faster than the speed of the other layers in the outer core and a thousand times faster than...

    A last-minute fight over a “Buy America” provision has erupted in the final negotiations over a waterways bill. At issue is language included in the Senate-passed version of the Water Resources Development Act (WRDA) that would require American iron and steel products be used in projects assisted by the Drinking Water State Revolving Fund. Sources familiar with the negotiations say Speaker Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) is actively pushing to strip the provision from the bill. Supporters of the provision say Ryan's push is at odds with President-elect Donald Trump’s promise to support American manufacturers and create jobs for the middle class....

    King Tut was buried with a dagger made of an iron that literally came from space, says a new study into the composition of the iron blade from the sarcophagus of the boy king. Using non-invasive, portable X-ray fluorescence spectrometry, a team of Italian and Egyptian researchers confirmed that the iron of the dagger placed on the right thigh of King Tut's mummified body a has meteoric origin. ...
  • Too much iron in food?

    09/16/2015 8:49:27 AM PDT · by LouAvul · 26 replies
    I recently went on a low cholesterol and low sugar diet. Carbs were ok but I wanted to lose weight and tone muscle. It was short term (6 to 8 months?) but I started eating egg whites. Couple dozen a week. Whole wheat bread. Couple loaves a week. Tuna. Up to 2 cans a day. And my snack was a large bowl of cheerios or corn flakes. I had some blood work done for my new PCP and they discovered my iron level is/was 3 times normal. Now I discover the foods I was eating are rich in iron, with...
  • What is Mars Made Of?

    Like Earth, the interior of Mars has undergone a process known as differentiation. This is where a planet, due to its physical or chemical compositions, forms into layers, with denser materials concentrated at the center and less dense materials closer to the surface. In Mars’ case, this translates to a core that is between 1700 and 1850 km (1050 – 1150 mi) in radius and composed primarily of iron, nickel and sulfur. This core is surrounded by a silicate mantle that clearly experienced tectonic and volcanic activity in the past, but which now appears to be dormant. Besides silicon and...
  • J Street Endorsees in Congress Refuse to Support Iron Dome Funding for Israel

    Free Beacon ^ | 8/21/14 | Adam Kredo
    Eleven lawmakers backed by liberal advocacy group J Street either voted against or refused to vote in favor of increased funding for Israel’s Iron Dome missile defense system, which has been a critical life-saver during Hamas’s latest assault on the Jewish state. Congress overwhelmingly approved an emergency increase in funding for Iron Dome this month by a vote of 395 to 8. Three of the eight who voted against the funding increase are J Street-backed lawmakers. Another eight abstained from the pro-Israel vote and also are financially supported by the group. J Street’s political action committee (PAC) has already donated...

    Hot Air ^ | 8/3/14 | Jazz Shaw
    You may recall that on Friday, in what would have been a Christmas Miracle were it not several months early, Congress actually got something done. It was the passage of a bill approving $225M in funding for Israel’s Iron Dome defensive missile system. It was quite the bipartisan effort in retrospect, garnering an overwhelming 395 votes in the House with only eight in opposition. One of those eight was Minnesota Congressman Keith Ellison, and as The Corner reports, he went out on the weekend gab circuit to explain why he didn’t support the measure. “Because a cease-fire is what we...

    Mycenae -- the ancient city of the legendary King Agamemnon, best known from Homer's Iliad and Odyssey and its iconic Lion Gate and cyclopean defensive walls, has long fascinated scholars and site visitors alike with the epic proportions of its imposing citadel remains... But there is another Mycenae -- one known for centuries from ancient historical documents -- which has nevertheless eluded the eyes of archaeologists, historians, and tourists. One might call it "Greater Mycenae", the Lower Town. It is invisible because most of it still lies undetected, unexcavated, below the surface. In its heyday it was a second millenium...

    The moon is made of far more valuable stuff than green cheese. And one man wants to capitalize on that fact. NASA, which ended America's space shuttle program in June, says it wants to privatize spaceflight. Naveen Jain, co-founder and chairman of Moon Express, Inc., wants to go a step further: He wants to privatize the moon itself. Jain's company plans to piggyback on private shuttle flights, using them to carry his lunar landers and mining platforms to the moon. "People ask, why do we want to go back to the moon? Isn't it just barren soil?" Jain told FoxNews.com....

    As a child growing up in rural India in the 1960s and 1970s, Naveen Jain would gaze up at the moon and imagine a life beyond his modest surroundings. Today he's still gazing at the moon, but for far different reasons. Jain, 55, is co-founder of Moon Express, a Mountain View, Calif.-based company that's aiming to send the first commercial robotic spacecraft to the moon next year. This serial entrepreneur-he founded Internet companies Infospace and Intelius-believes that the moon holds precious metals and rare minerals that can be brought back to help address Earth's energy, health and resource challenges.

    The Mighty Democrat Senator "No Debate" Reid has spoken though his use of raw Park Police Power by an incompetent, spendaholic, Democrat Administration: Release the floodgates of continuous increased Federal Spending or we will lower the BARRYCADE IRON CURTAIN until you cave in. In this way Reid and Obama have defined for America what continued control of the US Senate and the Administration will be like in the future. Each section of the BARRYCADE IRON CURTAIN is a visual testament to the abject failure of the Obama-Reid Adminstration and Senate. There should be no doubt, except for the true believers...

    At least one rocket was fired towards the Israeli resort city of Eilat on Monday night. Sirens were heard throughout the city shortly before 1:00 a.m. Local residents reported hearing explosions following the sirens. The Iron Dome anti-missile system, which was just recently deployed near Eilat, reportedly intercepted the rocket before it could explode in a populated area. There were no reports of damages, but three people suffered shock. Two of them were treated by paramedics and the third was taken to the Yoseftal Hospital in the city. The IDF and the police are searching the area to determine whether...

    One Critical Commodity Is Having A Worse Year Than Gold Sam Ro May 29, 2013, 7:59 AM Here's a chart that Deutsche Bank includes in its periodic "Equity View" report. It's the year-to-date and month-to-date returns of the world's most important asset classes. There aren't too many surprises here. Japan's Nikkei is leading stocks and the yen is lagging the currencies. High yield bonds are leading the credit markets as investors reach for yield. One area that may surprise some is commodities. Gold has experienced a very widely reported sell-off. But iron ore is actually having a worse year. Iron...

    In the past few days a number of hugely misleading reports have circulated in both Britain and the United States alleging that Margaret Thatcher snubbed Sarah Palin. It all began with a blog post in The Guardian claiming the former prime minister had refused to meet with Mrs. Palin on her upcoming visit to London, on the grounds that she was “unworthy of an audience”, and quoting an anonymous “ally” of Lady Thatcher. According to The Guardian, in a piece entitled ‘Margaret Thatcher to Sarah Palin: don’t bother dropping by’: Her (Lady Thatcher’s) allies believe that Palin is a frivolous...

    During his trip to Israel this month, U.S. President Barack Obama is expected to pay a visit to the Church of the Nativity in Bethlehem, members of his delegation told Israeli government ministry representatives on Monday. According to a high-ranking Israeli official, that stop, scheduled for Friday, March 22, was added to his itinerary only in the past few days. UNESCO recognized the Church of the Nativity as a Palestinian World Heritage Site in June 2012, several months after Palestine became a full-fledged member of the organization.

    Greenland's prime minister warned the European Union he could scrap a preliminary deal intended to safeguard the bloc's access to his country's huge mineral resources, saying Brussels has failed to follow through. "I don't understand the behavior of the (European) Commission," leftist Kuupik Kleist said on Wednesday in his office... Kleist's comments to Reuters signal Greenland may be increasingly willing to play off rival powers from Brussels to Beijing that are drawn by its minerals as global warming opens up sea routes and mining prospects. Kleist, who grew up harpooning whales from a remote village in northern Greenland, faces a...
