    Trump still sees midterms success, despite House loss

    Democrats have won enough seats in the US midterms to flip the house. Now the Democrats have gained power to investigate President Donald Trump and help shape the nation's political agenda for the next two years.

    However, it’s not a blue wave south of the border as the GOP held senate control with wins in key battle grounds, beating Democratic incumbents in Indiana, Missouri and North Dakota, hanging on in Texas and winning an open seat in Tennessee.

    Did you know?

    Laughing lowers stress hormones (like cortisol, epinephrine, and adrenaline) and strengthens the immune system by releasing health-enhancing hormones.

    Tony Clement facing extortion demand after sending explicit photos, video

    Conservative MP Tony Clement has resigned from all his committee roles after admitting he shared sexually explicit photos and a video to an extortionist demanding 50,000 euros or their release. The RCMP has confirmed that it has received the information from the long-time MP pertaining to the alleged extortion attempt.

    For now, Conservative Party Leader Andrew Scheer has appointed Lisa Raitt to take over for Clement as justice critic.

    Today is...

    Stress can be a real killer, both in the workplace and in our day to day lives. Stress serves a solid purpose in human biology but our modern lives have brought about a surplus of causes that haunt us from day to day.

    Stress Awareness Day was set aside as time to be aware of the stress in our lives and how it affects us. The best way to celebrate Stress Awareness Day is to take the opportunity to remove the stress from your life for the day.

    In the quest for cleaner fuels, a scientist turns to Tim Hortons coffee grounds.

    When chemical engineer Sophia He was recruited to Dalhousie University's agriculture school five years ago, she began to brainstorm with local farmers about how leftover organic material could be turned into useful products.
    One day, she got a call from one of them wondering about used coffee grounds. So she dispatched a student to a local Tim Hortons in Bible Hill, N.S., where inquisitive staff sorted through their compost waste and handed some over.
    So began a research effort aimed at taking the waste product of a must-have staple for millions of Canadians and turning it into a fuel that could help power their cars.

    "We think this is a very important waste stream, but it's under-evaluated and it's underutilized," He said in an interview in her lab.
    The associate professor is part of a larger push in Canada, and elsewhere in the world, to create more environmentally friendly fuels from "biomass waste" — everything from kitchen scraps to sawdust.
    Ethanol, a biofuel largely made from corn and wheat, now accounts for about six per cent of gasoline content in Canada. But as demand for alternatives to fossil fuels rises, there's an attempt to add more novel sources to the biofuel mix.

    "There's going to be a limit at some point to how much you can pull out of agriculture," according to Ian Thompson, president of the industry advocacy group Advanced Biofuels Canada.
    It's not outrageous to think that coffee grounds can help power vehicles. For instance, the British firm bio-bean, in concert with oil giant Shell, last year started providing such fuel to London's transportation system, albeit only enough to power the equivalent of a single bus for a year.
    In the world of biomass waste, coffee grounds have a leg up, according to He. For one, they are already a "beautiful particle size" that unlike other feedstocks don't need to be ground down, she said.
    They also contain about 15 per cent oil, which can be easily extracted.

    What to do with what remains is more tricky, He said. She uses a hydrothermal liquefaction reactor in her lab, essentially a pressure cooker that turns the residue into a crude oil, one that still needs more refining before it can be used.

    "It's really doable. The only barrier is cost," she said.

    Bringing the costs of producing fuel from biomass waste down to a level near fossil fuels is one of the challenges. Another issue is trying to "scale-up" — the process of going from the test-tube level in the laboratory to a rugged industrial technology.
    The chemistry and thermodynamics involving high volumes are different than with small amounts, Thompson said. And the new types of biomass waste being tried also tend to have more contaminants.
    Still, companies converting waste into fuel are popping up across the country, he said. Some use residue from the forest industry, or the stalks and leaves left over from the corn harvest. Some are highly efficient, Thompson said, making them low-carbon intensity.

    "There's a remarkable number of projects that are out there doing it," he said. "It's a pretty exciting time in that regard."
    Sophia He has been aided along in her research by plenty of local interest. She's helped one farmer use old cooking oil to fuel his equipment. On a recent day, another farmer stopped by her office to discuss what she might be able to do with chicken feathers.
    One local businessman, Martin Trainor, said he's has even helped fund part of her research out of his own pocket. Like many, he's concerned about the environment.
    But he also notes the costs associated with trucking away the thousands of kilograms a year of water-laden coffee grounds that can come from a single coffee shop, and then paying tipping fees at the local municipal compost site.
    "Every coffee shop, every McDonald's, everybody has the same issue," he said. "It's a waste product, organic waste product for the most part. And what do we do with it?"

    What to do with the left over Timmie's coffee, after 20 mins, fill up your gas tank.

    Good morning fellow Canucks!

    What is that bright thing in the sky thats giving me a headache? Oh its the sun! I forgot that it existed considering the craptacular weather we have had the past few weeks.

    Speaking of the sun, there is a space probe that was launched back in August toward the sun. The other day the Parker Space Probe made one of its scheduled closest approaches to the sun, coming about 4 million miles from the surface. The Parker space probe will make more orbits around the Sun and Venus, with each pass of the sun being closer and faster.

    Temperature of the surface of the sun is about 5,000 degrees (C or F, it doesn't matter), but the atmosphere or corona of the sun is much hotter. One of the tasks of the Parker probe is to try and find out why this is.

    Well, that stuff was interesting to me. I am a space geek.

    Have a great day folks!
