The Bronze Age

Ireland's heatwave may be over, but half of us are still looking suspiciously bronzed. Almost 50pc of Irish women have hit the bottle in a bid to look more sunkissed, according to a new survey.Staggeringly, it makes us the biggest consumer of fake tan per capita on the planet.But it seems that practice doesn't always make perfect, with a third also admitting to mucking up their sunless tan.Jennifer Lopez, and Christina Aguilera are just some of the stars to suffer fake tan fails in the past.When hers went wrong, even jokingly compared herself to controversial 'Tan Mom', Patricia Krentcil, who was arrested for allegedly taking her five-year-old daughter to a tanning salon last year.Posting a snap of her tan, the reality star tweeted: "The tanorexic mum has some serious competition."So with the chances of developing a 'real tan' getting slimmer by the day here, Ireland's top beauty experts reveal how to fake it till you make it.Paula Cuddihy, Urbana Dublin and Drogheda:"When applying your tan, start from your feet and work your way up in light circular motions, leaving your arms until last. It's better to apply two thin layers than one thick layer so you can control the depth of colour. Use the cool setting on the hairdryer to dry the first coat before applying the second one; never use it on a heat setting as you will start to sweat and ruin your tan. If you don't have a tanning mitt or glove, improvise by wrapping a plastic bag around your hand and putting an old sock over it to apply your tan."Elaine Butler-Doolin, Bespoke Beauty:"To avoid tell-tale orange palms, always use latex gloves to apply your tan from the legs up. Once you've done your arms, remove one of the gloves and apply a small amount of tan to the back of your hand with the other (still gloved) hand. Then remove the second glove and put the first one back on, but only over your fingers, to do the same with the other hand for a completely natural-looking finish."Karen Brown, KARORA Cosmetics:"When self-tanning, always leave your hands and feet until last. Avoid streaking by putting tan on to a baby wipe, which adds extra moisture and absorbs any excess colour, and glide it on to the back of your hands, feet and ankles. If you're prone to breakouts, run an ice cube or cold damp cloth over your face before you apply self tan to seal the pores first."Liz Dwyer, IMAGE magazine Beauty Editor and Beauty Bootcamp:"As a new mum, I've all but given up on self-tan. Now it's more likely to be Sally Hansen Airbrush Legs (spray, €13.95 or lotion, €16.95) in a panic in the morning! My secret is to add a few drops of body oil and mix it in the palm of your hand before slathering on to exposed skin. This gives a lovely glow and covers any imperfections without looking too opaque. It only takes a few minutes to do your whole body and if you use scented body oil, it saves even more time!"Ailbhe Lynch, TheBeautyLounge.ie:"When tanning your face, only use products designed especially for the face as they're gentler than body ones. I've been applying Lancôme Flash Bronzer Self-Tanner Face Gel (€28.97) for years. After using latex gloves to apply tan to the whole body except face, neck and hands, I remove the gloves and apply a light layer of facial self-tanner the same way I would my regular moisturiser. Then, having washed my hands, I put some tan on a cotton pad and apply it to the back of my hands to complete application."Audrey Kavanagh, Therapie Clinic:"When tanning at home, my biggest tip is to get into a routine and stick to it so you never miss any bits. Gently smooth self tan on to the skin. Don't rub it as this can make it uneven. Once you've applied your tan, pat a tiny bit of baby powder under your arms to help prevent it from sweating off during the night. Your tan won't get deeper the longer you leave it, so there's no point leaving it on longer than the recommended development time."Derrick Carberry, Callanberry Makeup Academy:"There are so many tans out there that it's pretty much a case of trial and error until you find the right one for your skin tone and type. When you do, go to a cosmetic counter and get the makeup artist to match your foundation to the colour of the tan on your neck line. It's a good idea to have a small amount of tan on your face as well in case your foundation starts to wear off during the day. Tans with a golden undertone are generally best for Irish skin as it helps tone down any redness."Sinead Halpin, New Age Laser, Skin and Beauty Clinic:"At the salon, we sometimes do contouring to help clients looked more toned. At home, you can get the same effect by applying one light layer of tan to the whole body and then going over the cheekbones, jawline, collarbone, hips, and basically anywhere else you can see bone. However, we turn the spray tan down for this, so when you're doing it yourself only use the excess tan on the mitt, otherwise it will look like a streak."Afterwards, use a moisturiser with a little shimmer in it to highlight along the centre of the legs and outer arms to make them look slimmer. To maintain a glowing tan, simply add a few squirts of tan into your regular moisturiser in the mornings."Marissa Carter, Carter Beauty Blackrock and Cocoa Brown Tan:"To avoid getting tan in your eyebrows, my advice is to put a little petroleum jelly (such as Vaseline) on them first. Similarly, if you've got dark circles under your eyes, you can either use some Vaseline to stop them from getting any darker or avoid putting tan on the area. If you're using a spray formula, wrap your hair up in a towel. Nail varnish will protect your finger and toe nails from staining."Meanwhile, putting a sheet of kitchen towel under each foot will help prevent picking up any excess tan on the soles of your feet during the application process."Irish Independent

State Lawmakers Block Plastic Bag Bans, Like Philadelphias, in Move One Representative Calls Huge Ab
State Lawmakers Block Plastic Bag Bans, Like Philadelphias, in Move One Representative Calls Huge Ab
After several years of failed attempts to pass free-standing legislation blocking municipal plastic bag bans, Pennsylvania lawmakers used a budget-related bill to extend a current moratorium on such bans for at least a year, with little debate and no public hearings.The new provision, inserted into the fiscal code (HB1083) just hours before a full vote, is tucked between parts of an amendment on how to spend state gambling proceeds. It prohibits municipalities from enacting any fees or restrictions on all single-use plastics such as bags, utensils or styrofoam containers.If approved, it would effectively delay implementation of any current plastic bag bans such as those passed in Philadelphia, West Chester and Narberth, at least until July 1, 2021, or six months after Gov. Tom Wolf lifts his COVID-19 state of emergency.State lawmakers tried to permanently ban plastic bag bans in 2017, but Wolf vetoed the bill, citing the Environmental Rights Amendment to the Pennsylvania Constitution.During last year's budget process, Senate majority leader Jake Corman (R-Centre County), spearheaded a similar provision, which prohibited plastic bag bans for a year and authorized studies to assess the economic impact of single-use plastics bans. Corman's district includes a plastic bag factory, Hilex Poly, a division of Novolex, which employs about 160 people. It's one of country's largest manufacturer of plastics products.On Thursday, State Rep. Greg Vitali (D-Delaware County) attempted to remove the language from the fiscal code."I think this is a huge abuse of power," Vitali told StateImpact Pennsylvania. "What it is, is one powerful politician preventing an entire state from enacting good environmental policy to protect a very narrow interest in his district. It's really politics at its worst in my view."Jennifer Kocher, a spokesperson for Corman, said he was not responsible for this year's provision but would not say who inserted the language. Kocher pointed to the COVID-19 pandemic as a reason to further delay plastic bag bans."Senator Corman has indicated that now is not the time to be banning plastic bags made from recycled materials when grocery stores have actually banned shoppers from bringing reusable bags into the stores due to concerns over spreading the virus," she said.On Earth Day, Philadelphia Mayor Jim Kenney announced that the city would delay enforcement of its plastic bag ban until April 2021, citing the COVID-19 pandemic and wanting to make sure businesses did not have to incur more costs.In the limited 15 minutes of debate over the issue in the House Thursday night, Vitali urged his colleagues to consider the damage done by plastics pollution."Worldwide shoppers use 500 billion, billion with a 'b', single-use plastic bags annually," Vitali said. "It's estimated by 2050 there will be more plastic in the ocean than fish. Think about that. More plastic in the ocean than fish."Much of that plastic trash gets broken down into tiny pieces called micro plastics, which are then released up into the atmosphere, according to a recent study.State Rep. John Hershey (R-Juniata County) supported the measure, saying hundreds of family's livelihoods are tied to the Novolex plant in Milesburg."This issue also has COVID-19 import," Hershey said. "Philadelphia, right here in the Commonwealth, has delayed implementation of a plastic bag tax because plastic bags have been proven to carry COVID 19 virus."The scientific research surrounding whether plastic bags can spread the virus is ongoing, and so far has not "proven" anything. The CDC says the main way the virus spreads is through person-to-person contact, while surfaces may carry risks.Philadelphia City Councilman Mark Squilla, who championed Philadelphia's plastic bag ban, says it's safer for everyone to bring their own bag."I would rather bring my own bag and pack my own bag," he said.Squilla says the move is illegal based on the "single subject rule," which prevents lawmakers from inserting provisions that veer away from the titled subject of the bill. He says he's had discussions with the Philadelphia Law Department on challenging the state's pre-emption of the plastic bag bans."If they are going to continue to do this, we need to sue to prove a point that what they are doing is not legal," Squilla said.PennEnvironment director David Masur agrees that lawmakers have continually gotten away with inserting items into the fiscal code that they could not get through as stand alone bills."It's wildly anti-democratic," Masur said. "The fact that you can introduce a bill and move it in 90 minutes through the legislative process is certainly not the way to do the people's business. For cities like Philadelphia that are trying to tackle plastics pollution, it means the city wo not be able to do it on their timeline. And if you were a city or town in Pennsylvania that were thinking about plastics legislation, this certainly has a chilling effect."The Governor's office did not return a request for comment.Is the ban on gay marriage unconstitutional?I am not sure whether it's unconstitutional or not but one thing I know for sure that it is not against religion. What does gay marriage have to do with Catholic Church in terms of LEGALITY.
Henri Van Breda Questioned in an Ice Cold Room Wearing Only His Underpants, Court Hears
Henri Van Breda Questioned in an Ice Cold Room Wearing Only His Underpants, Court Hears
Cape Town - Henri van Breda was questioned in an ice cold room wearing only his underpants and was not told his rights, he alleged in his plea explanation in the Western Cape High Court on Monday.He pleaded not guilty to axing his parents and brother to death, seriously injuring his sister and defeating the ends of justice.Van Breda, 22, alleges an intruder wearing a balaclava, gloves and dark clothes was behind the attack and that he had heard other voices of people speaking Afrikaans in their home in the De Zalze Estate in Stellenbosch that morning in 2015.He said he had pursued the suspect who had axed his family, but that the man had escaped.He claimed he had tried to phone the emergency services after the intruder fled, but didn’t know the number.He tried to phone his then girlfriend, but was unable to reach her too.“I also tried to Google the emergency number on my phone,” he said.He ascended the stairs after hearing his brother Rudi in the bedroom and as he went toward the second floor he saw his sister Marli moving on the landing.“The last thing I recall seeing is Marli and my mom. I then lost consciousness. I am unsure whether this was due to shock or to the injuries that I sustained when I fell down the stairs [while pursuing the suspect earlier] or a combination of both.” Henri claimed to have gained consciousness later when it was already light outside.He was still disorientated, but saw Marli moving, he said. Rudi was also still making what sounded like gurgling sounds in the room, he alleged.“I also recall seeing blood on the vertical side of one of the stairs where I had lain. I assume that this must have been my own blood,” he said in his plea explanation, read by his advocate Pieter Botha.His phone was lying at the bottom of the stairs and he picked it up to phone an ambulance.“I looked at the emergency numbers on the fridge door, but they did not appear to me to be of any assistance.”He found an emergency number on his cellphone and dialled it. He said he was not sure how many times he tried calling it, but the State had provided him with his cellphone records and it appeared he had tried calling the number twice, both times “unsuccessfully”.‘Panicked’He tried again from the cordless phone. He claimed to have panicked and lit a cigarette in the kitchen to remain calm so that he could communicate better with the operator, to whom he got through.South Africans in the past had difficulty understanding his Australian accent and he has a stutter at times which worsens when he is under stress, Henri said. He also has a “tendency to mumble”.He tried to speak calmly and clearly, but “struggled for a very long time to get the operator to send an ambulance”.He again tried to call his girlfriend and she didn’t answer, and outside the house also asked a person to get help.Henri said once the first police officers arrived on the scene, he told them to go upstairs.“Once they arrived the adrenaline and the feeling that I should be doing something to help started to dissipate and I could feel myself going into shock.”His stab wounds were dressed by an ambulance crew.“At some stage the police took my grey sleeping pants and white socks that I was wearing, leaving me dressed only in boxer shorts,” he said.He was led to a police vehicle by two officers and told he was being taken for medical attention, he said.“They enquired about the race of my attackers. I replied that I only saw one and that I think that the one I saw was black.“I overheard them saying that Marli had been administered a drug that makes her ‘wide awake and telling us everything’. I enquired about my family members, but they refused to provide me with any details.”At the police station, one of the officers collected a plastic bag and documents before taking him to a doctor, who filled out a J88 form which noted his injuries. “At one point, one of the officers asked the doctor in Afrikaans if it would be possible to say if my wounds were self-inflicted. I cannot recall which one of them asked the question. The doctor replied in Afrikaans that she ‘sal sien wat ons kan doen’ [will see what they can do].”Only in underpantsHe said he was then taken to the detectives’ offices where he was “made to wait in a communal office with officers coming and going dressed only in my underpants”.He was given cigarettes and a bottle of Coke, while an officer returned with food and drinks for the rest of them, Henri said in his plea agreement.“They then moved me to another office, which had the air-conditioning turned down to make the room ice cold. I was visibly shivering from the cold.“After waiting in this office with police officers around for a while, a large man arrived, whom I later learned was Colonel Beneke. [He] came in, poured himself a Coke and without introduction, told me that he ‘does not believe a word of [my] bullshit story’.”At Beneke’s request, Henri said he repeated to him what had happened a number of times and repeatedly inquired about his family but “was denied any information”.Beneke ostensibly said that Marli was “telling them everything” and asked if his version would be the same as hers. Henri said yes.He said he was again asked what had happened before another officer was told to take his statement and type it, saying he could leave once it was signed.“I waited in a tiny office with a computer and printer for the officer to type up what he either had written down earlier or what he recalled from memory.“By the time that the statement was being typed up, I was extremely exhausted due to the fact that I had not slept for a long period of time. I was also still in shock. The last time I had anything to eat was the previous evening.”At that stage, he just “wanted to get out of there as quickly as possible”.‘Some inaccuracies’“Although my statement was not correct in all aspects, I did not want to sit around correcting the officers and reliving the trauma of the night before with another retelling of what had happened.“Although the gist of what was written down is correct, the statement does contain some inaccuracies and also does not contain all of the detailed information that I conveyed to the officers.“It also contains a number of grammatical errors, probably due to the fact that the statement is a paraphrased version by an Afrikaans speaking officer.”He said he was at no stage told that he had the right to remain silent or to legal representation.“Had I realised at the time that the police would be using the statement as evidence against me, I would most certainly have asked for an opportunity to consult with a legal representative.“Although I have nothing to hide and would probably have provided them with my version I would have been able to provide a far more accurate and comprehensive version than the one obtained in the statement.”He said he was “severely prejudiced” by police who are now “holding me to each and every word contained in a statement that was taken from me”.EmotionalThe first officer at the scene, Sergeant Adrian Kleynhans, also testified on the first day of the trial, saying Henri had been emotional, but not crying when he arrived at the scene that morning.When he pulled up outside the Goske Street house, Henri came out through the front door in his underwear.Kleynhans said he smelt alcohol on his breath.The officer testified that besides the bloody axe on the stairs, the ground floor appeared fine, with valuables, such as a handbag and laptop, all in place.The weapon was the first sign of something being wrong, Kleynhans told the court. When he ascended the stairs, he found Marli and Teresa.He phoned for help when Marli's arm and leg moved and he realised she was still alive.He took cellphone photos of the scene before allowing paramedics to work on Marli. While taking the photos, he saw Rudi and Martin’s bodies in the room.The sergeant said when he walked through the family’s house, he saw the kitchen door was ajar and the windows were slightly open. There was no sign of forced entry, he said.There was also a paper with emergency numbers stuck to the fridge, near where cigarettes butts had been killed on the kitchen floor, Kleynhans said.An in loco inspection will take place at De Zalze on Tuesday.

Where Can I Find Plastic Injection Molding Manufacturers in China?
Where Can I Find Plastic Injection Molding Manufacturers in China?
This article was originally published on the Sourcing Allies blog“What kind of materials can be used in plastic injection molding?”‍PLASTIC INJECTION MOLDINGWhat is the plastic injection molding process?This process is similar to that of metal die casting. In this process, molten plastic is injected into a die under pressure and held until it cools. Once it becomes solid, the die is opened and the plastic casting is taken out. Plastic injection molding is an extremely versatile, precise, fast and inexpensive method of mass producing plastic products.What materials can be used?This process mainly uses both thermoplastics and thermoset plastics, each of which have their own advantages and limitations. The primary difference between the two is that thermoplastics can be melted back into liquid form or recycled while thermoset plastics cannot.ThermoplasticsPros: Recyclable, cost efficient (because waste during manufacturing process can be reused), increased impact resistance because of flexibility.Cons: Lower heat and chemical resistance (they degrade faster.)ThermosetPros: Higher chemical and thermal resistance and higher mechanical strength and dimensional stability.Cons: Cannot be recycled, lower impact resistance. Also, thermoset plastics are more difficult to work with so you might find it difficult to find suppliers for them.What will I need in terms of design input?We must have 3D files in STEP or IGES formats.Where in China can you find plastic injection molding factories?Depending on what kind of plastic you want to use for your product, these suppliers can be found all around China. Different factories have different quality levels and expertise.How much does tooling cost?It can cost from a few thousand dollars for simple tooling to hundreds of thousands for more complex multi-cavity tools.How long does tooling last?It depends on the material, but most likely 200,000 pieces is not a problem.What is the average lead time for tooling?15 days to three months depending on complexity.Do plastic injection molding products or their tooling need any final finishes?It is not unusual for injected parts to need final machining. This may also include addition of inserts (that can also be inserted during casting) or threads cutting. Final surface finishes may also be needed such as powder coating or paint application. Sometimes, under some circumstances the tool itself may need a special surface texture added, which will imprint on the final injected parts.What are the pros and cons of plastic injection molding?Pros:Consistent measurements.Quick production rate.Low cost per unit.Good surface finish.Products can often be recyclable.Manufacturing process can be quite cheap because scrap can be recycled/reused.ConsTooling cost.Warpage and shrinkage.Some thermosetting plastics or rubbers cannot be recycled.Recycled material will not give as good performance as new material.What are the known challenges of the plastic injection molding process?Some suppliers will use recycled material without telling you. Material type used is critical if you are looking for specific physical properties or performance. Additionally, shrinkage can be problematic across larger surface areas.Sourcing Allies is a team of expert China sourcing agents that has helped western customers manufacture and source products from low-cost regions since 2006.For more on plastic injection molding visit our website or write to us at info@sourcingallies.com.·RELATED QUESTIONWhat are some good skin whitening masks?Skin color is not a determiner of someone’s beauty.

How to Curl Your Hair Like This?
how to curl your hair like this?To get curls like that you use a curling wand. Almost like an iron but without a clamp and it gets smaller at the bottom. To get bigger curls, you use a thicker wand.

What Is Preventing the Solar Energy and Other Renewables to Replace the Oil?
What Is Preventing the Solar Energy and Other Renewables to Replace the Oil?
Solar energy and other renewables do not return the energy invested compared with fossil fuels. Fossil fuels are also portable-they have lots of energy and they can be transported. Not true of solar or wind, which are site specific and have to be part of an electrical grid. There's also the fact that the oil and coal still sitting underground is worth trillions to the oil companies, and the people who run those companies get rich from the status quo1. what is the most common and renewable energy sources?solar energy or w can use water as hydropowr2. Do solar energy panels for your home make sense?I looked into it once, just for the hell of it. I assumed the sun would shine 12 hours every day, which it does not in this part of the world.I assumed no maintenance cost. The pay-back was about 20 years.In all the companies I have worked for, if the pay-back on a project is over 4 years, it has no chance. The payback depends on the cost of electricity from the local supplier, the maintenance cost, the amount and intensity of sunlight and the installed cost of panels. This is all constantly changing. As the situation stands now, I would rather invest my money in lottery tickets or better still buy good stocks.3. What kind of fuel is the most used one for generating energy?We rely mainly on coal, nuclear, natural gas, hydroelectric, and petroleum power and a small amount from solar energy, tidal harnesses, wind generators, and geothermal sources. 80% of the world's energy consumption is in fossil fuels -- coal, oil and natural gas. Coal is still "king" right now at almost 50% of the US energy needs. Oil is a modest second. .4. How much do you know about solar energy?enough to know it's not the way to go for the future. I also know enough not to count wikipedia as a reliable resource. I firmly believe that nuclear is going to be the common source of power in the future.5. How is solar energy stored for later use?I have a solar panel system installed by a team called cotterill civils from birmingham, the midlands. If you need understand more about it, i would see there site as it has an informational6. Solar Energy | Save & Learn More with ChooseEnergy®The United States is on track to top 3 million solar PV installations this year, adding 1 million photovoltaic panels in just two years, according to a study by Wood Mackenzie Power & Renewables and the Solar Energy Industries Association. The number will exceed 4 million in 2023, the study says. It took more than 40 years for the first million installations. "The rapid growth in the solar industry has completely reshaped the energy conversation in this country," said Abigail Ross Hopper, SEIA president and CEO, in a press release announcing the study. The 2.7 million solar systems installed through September 2020 have the capacity to generate nearly 89 gigawatts of electricity. The solar industry employs about 250,000 Americans, the SEIA says. The expansion of solar is part of a growing movement toward renewable energy. Green energy made up 22.5 percent of all electricity generated in the country in 2020, according to the U.S. Energy Information Administration. Solar energy was responsible for about 14.7 percent of the green energy generated.7. can solar energy generate electricity in a home alone? what is needed?.?Adequate #of Solar Panels Adequate #of Storage Batteries Battery Charge Controller System load management Controller Mounting and wiring equipment Gas or Diesel Generator (Properly sized) I would figure on spending around $30,000-$40,000 for a decent system. This system will not give you air conditioning or heat, but will probably be adequate for a small homes other electrical, with some inconveniences at times. There are many companies offering these on the Internet. Some of them have forms and calculations for sizing all the equipment based on your location. You are not in a very good area because of a lot of rain, so diesel will need to run a lot. The most important thing in sizing system is to be accurate in listing ALL appliances electrical loads you have and how many hours/day they operate.

Great hairstyle for a teen girl with long straight hair?cornrows,twist,braids in the front up in ponytail,french braids,you can even cover the eye when it is out Im an hairstylist2. My hair is outrageously curly and frizzy, help!?Your hair texture changes as you age due to hormones. The stylists will recommend a keratin treatment - this contains formaldehyde, which is carcinogenic. Do not believe them if they say it is formaldehyde-free or chemical-free, or that XYZ brand is 'safe' - the process requires formaldehyde to set the keratin, and the heat changes some ingredients to formaldehyde gas. If the stylist needs a mask in order to put it on you, it's toxic. Some women have also had all their hair fall out from keratin treatments. Curly hair needs different techniques to straight hair to maintain - you are more than your hair, but working with your hair's natural texture is easier than working against it.3. what is better [natural] curly or straight hair?Curly. And I dispute most of the thing you said that you can not do with it. Sure, it's not the same as with the straight, but it's not impossible.

Why Does an Air Conditioner Sometimes Take so Much Time to Cool a Room?
Why Does an Air Conditioner Sometimes Take so Much Time to Cool a Room?
In one word "capacity".Capacity" in relation to air conditioners is a measure of how fast they can transfer heat from inside the room to outside.Every room presents a "heat load" This is a combination of:The size of the roomThe temperature difference between inside the room versus outside the roomThe type of insulation / insulating materials between the room and outside the roomThe orientation of the room with respect to the sunThe number and type of windows and window dressings (awnings / curtains etc)The number of occupantsOther sources of heat including lights, devices such as televisions, computersAs your air conditioner extracts heat from the room, additional heat is being added to the room both from outside the room and from sources of heat within the room.If your room is eventually cooling down but takes a long time, that suggests that the capacity of the air conditioner is greater than the heat load, but not by much. In other words, you have little spare capacity.Your options to improve the situation are:Reduce the room's heat load. Things like covering windows with external shade, internal thermal curtains, better ceiling insulation etc. Ensure that the air conditioner is able to run effectively, with as much capacity as possible. Things like ensuring the indoor units filters are clean, ensuring both the indoor and outdoor coils are clean, checking that indoor and outdoor fans are all operational.If you have done everything possible to reduce the heat load and maximise the effectiveness of your air conditioner and it still takes too long to cool your room, another option is to turn it on earlier, so there is less heat to remove from the room, or leave it on at a higher setpoint, again to reduce the amount of heat the air conditioner has to remove before you feel comfortable. The last option is to replace your air conditioner with a unit with a greater cooling capacity. Obviously this is the most expensive option. It is also the reason why when choosing an air conditioner in the first place, getting the correct capacity is so important. Professionals will perform a heat load calculation to work out the capacity of cooling required. As you can see, getting this right is very important to avoid these sorts of situations from occurring in the first place..1. can you put an air conditioner in a room within a room?No because you will not be able to use the other room, nor the AC will work efficiently,and the performance of your AC will gradually reduce in a short span of time, due to lack of fresh air flow which the other half of your needs to discharge th heat collected from AC room. Butter get raid of your window type, go in for split AC.2. why does my air conditioner make my room smell like a locker room?Usually your air conditioner has a filter. Take the filter out and soak it in a solution (50/50) 4 cups vinegar /4 cups water, then throw a little baking soda (1/4 cup) Soak for 3-4 hours, let it dry in the sun. This should take the moldly, mildew smell out. If it does not , you may need to buy a new filter. Good luck!3. I have to install an air conditioner but the outlet has a round hole and 2 horizontal slots underneath?The more correct way is to find an outlet that fits your a/c. Are you trying to hook a 110 to a 220 outlet? Even so you can change the outlet to match your power cord. Shut off the breaker that feeds this outlet and swap it out. If going from 220 to 110, just cap off the extra 110 feed wire and fold it up in the box. Use the remaining wires on the new outlet4. Dorms and cooling question, Evaporative (swamp) or air conditioner?You definitely need an air conditioner because, like you said, we do not have very many humid days. I have had friends buy swamp coolers because they are trying to save a buck and they end up having to buy an a/c.5. Air conditioner btu rating needed for 1500 sq ft home-need opinions?to top length an AC equipment call a qualified HVAC contractor and characteristic them carry out a warmth/COOLING analysis. which will furnish the coolest length required. employing sq. pictures on my own is not the magnificent thank you to length.
