Is it really cost effective to build a compact unit to extract hydrogen from H2O ?

Wednesday, January 23rd, 2013

Question by j l: Is it really cost effective to build a compact unit to extract hydrogen from H2O ?
Especially for transportation purposes…trains, cars, etc….I know on submarines , they extract the oxygen from H2O. Is there a car on the market where you can add water instead of gas/diesel ?

Answer by oiloiloilcoal
You have to inject more energy than you will extract. Submarines have a handy nuclear reactor as standard equipment to provide the energy for the extraction process.

Does it really matter if I use trackbed with HO model railroad tracks (Code 100)?

Tuesday, September 11th, 2012

Question by AJ: Does it really matter if I use trackbed with HO model railroad tracks (Code 100)?
I was deciding on whether or not to get some track bed because I’m getting some things that involve trackwork for Christmas. I was debating and decided to ask the people of Yahoo Answers for this. So, if roadbed really does make a difference, what would be the best brand and/or type to go with? Also, what would I want to do about a bridge because I’m planning for a bridge on my layout? Would I just cut if off at the bridge section, or bring the roadbed through the bridge? Please let me know if I need to add details. Thanks for your input, A.J. (Gonfiantini)

Answer by PM Railfan
well roadbed is nice. gives you a base to not only lay track, but also to give a shape to ballasting it. however it is totally not required. ive always used Atlas roadbed and never had a problem with it. as far as your bridge goes youll want to end the roadbed. i wouldnt carry it across the bridge. it wouldnt look right and in most cases ( depending on the type of bridge ) you wouldnt need it. a stone arch would use it as opposed to an open girder type which wouldnt. actually some real bridges you can see right thru the tracks down below. remember, its not the ballast that supports the track. as bridges prove. its the roadbed under the ballast. but in model railroading that support is not required at all. its mostly for sound deadening and looks. somefolks actually lay track right on homasote or other soft sound deadening media.

Does one volt really matter on an input rating?

Monday, July 23rd, 2012

Question by AJ: Does one volt really matter on an input rating?
I have a model railroad crossing signal controller that says on the package 19VAC but I have only 18VAC. I have tested this but it won’t work for either that reason or some other reason. So does one volt really make a difference in this situation? If so, what can I do to fix this and please thoroughly explain how.

One of the garden railway clubs had a model of a Milwaukee Road Hiawatha train, including this model of the famous observation car Cedar Rapids, built to scale. The cars were so long that they got hung up on the bridge just outside the layout’s yard. Here, the modeler who built the train (standing) operates the throttle while another club member (kneeling) ensures that the models don’t get damaged by the bridge.

being an air hostess. is training really important as a pre req for recruitment?

Question by : being an air hostess. is training really important as a pre req for recruitment?
im 5’7″, done modelling earlier (only to pay for my own fees while in college) and currently pursuing animation studies. but now i am tired of my animation course and the guys are far more talented than my student work and i feel demoralised and accept that while animation industry may b tough for me, job of an air hostess might prove to be better for me.
i know that i am well groomed, know the ethics and meet all the requirements for an air hostess. i am also aware that the job is only glamorous on the outside and that, an air hostess has to take rude passengers in her stride and yet b as polite and stuff..
i have heard about various air hostess training n grooming institutes that help the girls get through with interviews and get selected. but i dont intend to do that because i feel most of them are only doing business and cheat the girls with high course fees.
i would like to know if the airlines’ recruiters only select candidates who have done the grooming courses from those “air hostess training” sort of institutes, or can i walk into an interview right away?
kindly let me know.
i am already 22.. in2-3years, even airlines wont look at me for recruitment, lol. so i need to make a quick decision..
thanx. . 🙂 all answers will b appreciated and the rude ones shall b reported. lol
please be genuine. i alone know right now how confused i am. thank you once again.

Airline jobs are hard to get because they pay good benefits but there are quite a few airlines so you can try other airlines than the one you applied to, I think you still have a chance.

Flight attendant schools are a complete waste of money. Apply directly to the airlines that interest you. All airlines have a Careers section on their websites, though sometimes you have to search for it, and this area lists the requirements for flight attendants. Generally, apart from being over 18, you need to have graduated high school and have a first aid certificate. Knowing a second language also helps. Once you’re accepted by an airline you go through a training course, and that’s all you need to know. Save your money, and go straight to the airlines.

In the U.S., all you need is a high school diploma or GED to qualify. Since the airlines will be training you, there is no need to go through additional courses. Being able to speak another language will be to your benefit and any experience you have in dealing with customers is always good as well.

Hi,

My belief is that the many deportment and training institutes are into a ‘numbers’ game; a waste of your time and money.

From what I have seen on TV, all Airlines train their cabin staff. You sound confident and believe you have all the necessary attributes, so my suggestion is – make an application and go for it.

As a Job-Search trainer, I always advise my students to make a ‘Speculative Job Application’ because it is the very best way to secure gainful employment.

Other suggestion: Visit your local airport, bail up one or more air-hostesses – they’re friendly, and ask how they commenced their careers with their airline. Ask the questions you need to ask (have your questions pre-prepared), and when you have finished, ask this one last question: “Is there anything else I need to know?” It is always useful to know the name and title of the person that you should write to as it makes your application more personal. Equally, when you have occasion to do some ‘follow-up’ you can ask for that person by name.

Always ask to be ‘put through to name’ because that infers that you know or believe him/her to be in their office. Don’t be shy about saying good stuff about yourself – you gotta fly your own flag!

As a passenger, I am always impressed by their efficient and friendly attitude.

Best wishes for your career.

On30 is a mixing of O Scale trains on HO scale track. This particular group used modular models to make it more portable. Their setup was my favorite of the day
