Pompano Beach add Mack electric garbage truck to fleet

Pompano Beach add Mack electric garbage truck to fleet

The streets of Pompano Beach, Florida will be cleaner and quieter than ever starting this week, thanks to a new, all-electric Mack LR waste truck that was delivered last week! The city revealed the new truck in Coastal Waste & Recycling colors at a local e-mobility event last week. It’s the South Florida city’s first electric garbage truck — but won’t be its last. “We see this as a pivotal moment in our commitment to sustainability. Partnering with Mack Trucks and our dealer network, Nextran Truck Centers, allows us to lead by example and drive positive change in our industry,” said Brendon Pantano, CEO of Coastal Waste & Recycling, at the truck’s public unveiling. “Working together, we developed routes for the LR Electric to ensure a full day’s work based on the application needs.” Mack reports that Coastal Waste & Recycling is Florida’s first private waste hauler to go electric, and said in a LinkedIn post that the company would soon also be piloting a Volvo CE EC230 Electric 23-ton excavator, with similar service support …

The 1 Item Of Food Waste UK Gardeners Should Always Add To Their Compost

The 1 Item Of Food Waste UK Gardeners Should Always Add To Their Compost

With the mild winter and nearing spring causing early hayfever symptoms for some, we can at least console ourselves with a comforting fact; the UK’s gardens are waking up. If you’re a keen gardener, the bleak winter months may have offered you a welcome respite from backyard work. But easing into seasonal chores doesn’t mean you have to toil away ― in fact, one of the most effective additions to your soil is probably lying in your bin bag as we speak. In a recent Facebook post shared with the (inaccurately-named, IMO) Dull Men’s Club, a site user said, “One of my dullest winter activities is to store the winter’s consumption of eggshells then pulverise them into powder and use them the following spring/summer to sprinkle on the soil of tomato plants suffering from ‘blossom end rot’ (a very common and very annoying occurrence in the UK which can ruin a crop).” Does that work? The theory Beverly Finnegan, the poster behind the suggestion, shares is that ”[blossom end rot] is caused by lack of …

Donald Trump’s dominating GOP primary performance doesn’t add up

Donald Trump’s dominating GOP primary performance doesn’t add up

Of all the 2024 political events I believed were irrelevant, the GOP primary campaign has been at the top of the list. But I was wrong. As it turns out, this cycle’s primaries, which have commonly been touted in the media as decisive evidence of the Donald Trump juggernaut going into the fall election, are illustrating a major weakness in his coalition — and it’s one that we have been seeing since the day after he won the 2016 election. There is a substantial faction of Republicans and Republican-leaning voters who simply cannot stand Donald Trump. Yes, he is overwhelmingly popular among his MAGA base which makes up about three-quarters of the GOP and the majority of them are blindly devoted to the man no matter what he does. They are not just enthusiastic about voting for him, they are ecstatic. The media sees this as a sign that he is virtually unbeatable even to the extent of pushing the narrative that he is the frontrunner for the general election and that incumbent President Joe Biden …

‘Everyone hates them’: see-through pants add to MLB’s uniform controversy | MLB

‘Everyone hates them’: see-through pants add to MLB’s uniform controversy | MLB

MLB’s new uniform reveal hasn’t gone very well. Now some of the rampant criticism has moved below the belt. Major League Baseball Players Association deputy executive director Bruce Meyer confirmed on Thursday that the organization is relaying concerns from players to MLB about the new pants, which are somewhat see-through. The complaints – first reported by ESPN – are part of broader scorn for the new uniforms, which are designed by Nike and manufactured by Fanatics. “I know everyone hates them,” Phillies shortstop Trea Turner said last week. “We all liked what we had. We understand business, but I think everyone wanted to keep it the same way, for the most part, with some tweaks here or there.” MLB officials say the new uniforms improve mobility by providing 25% more stretch and also will dry 28% faster. The lettering, sleeve emblems and numbering are less bulky in an attempt to make uniforms more breathable and comfortable. Commissioner Rob Manfred previously said he expects criticism to fade, but that was before the below-the-belt complaints. Some MLB …

Just add sugar for an almost death-defying study on tea and coffee

Just add sugar for an almost death-defying study on tea and coffee

Sweet or not, the end Almost everyone who gets old dies. In a gross way, that brief sentence could sum up a Dutch/Danish/British study called “Use of sugar in coffee and tea and long-term risk of mortality in older adult Danish men: 32 years of follow-up from a prospective cohort study“. The study says: “In total, 2923 men (mean age at inclusion: 63±5 years) were included, of which 1007 (34.5%) added sugar. In 32 years of follow-up, 2581 participants (88.3%) died, 1677 in the non-sugar group (87.5%) versus 904 in the sugar group (89.9%).” Feedback’s nifty, thrifty summary recalls a speech at an Ig Nobel prize ceremony by Yoshiro Nakamatsu. (Nakamatsu, also known as Dr NakaMats, received the 2005 Ig Nobel nutrition prize for photographing and retrospectively analysing every meal he had consumed over 34 years, an activity he continues in 2024.) Nakamatsu said: “Life should be long. Speeches should be short.” Shocking news The practice of mindfulness helps us focus on some particular thing – not just fleetingly, but at length. Feedback cannot stop …

Israel May Add Restrictions to Al Aqsa Mosque Access for Ramadan

Israel May Add Restrictions to Al Aqsa Mosque Access for Ramadan

The Israeli government was locked in debate on Monday on whether to increase restrictions on Muslims’ access to an important mosque compound in Jerusalem during the holy month of Ramadan, leading to predictions of unrest if the limits are enforced. The office of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said in a statement that a decision had already been reached, without disclosing what it was. But two officials briefed on the deliberations, who spoke on the condition of anonymity in order to discuss a sensitive matter, said a final decision would be made only after the government received recommendations from the security services in the coming days. On Sunday, Israeli cabinet ministers debated whether to bar some members of Israel’s Arab minority from attending prayers at the Aqsa Mosque compound, a site which is sacred to Muslims and Jews alike, during Ramadan, according to the two officials. Israel has long limited access to Al Aqsa for Palestinians from the Israeli-occupied West Bank, and since the start of the war in Gaza, it has imposed extra restrictions on …

Why You Should Never, Ever Add Too Much Water To Your Baby’s Formula

Why You Should Never, Ever Add Too Much Water To Your Baby’s Formula

Until you’re a parent, you don’t really think about the fact that babies aren’t actually allowed to have water until they’re six months old. Upon sharing this fact with many of my friends who do not have kids, they’re always baffled by it. 90% of them have no clue that this was even a thing — and to be honest, neither did I until I became a mum. But one TikTok is going viral after debunking the idea that babies aren’t allowed water, yet we mix their formula with water. So how does that work? Dr Karan Rajan, an NHS surgeon and TikToker who often does explainers on medical issues on both TikTok and Instagram revealed why this is the case. He advised not to give babies extra water to drink until they are at least six months old as it could be fatal. He said: “Newborn babies have kidneys that are half the size, or less than that of an adults. Their kidneys are still undergoing software updates so they’re not mature enough to …
