In fact the Earth is moving away from the Sun - due to the Suns mass loss - at a mere 15cm per year. That means that in a hundred years, we will be almost 15 metres further …away - hardly worth worrying about. (MORE)
If the earth rotates from the west to the east why do the sun and stars move the east towards to west?
Its all relative to your point of reference... The earth rotates from west to east about its axis, or counter-clockwise looking down from a point in space above the north pole…. You are standing on the earth, so you are also moving from west to east. You look up at the sun or stars, and they appear to move from east to west. Do this experiment... Stand still and look at some object in front of you. Pretend you are the earth and your head is the north pole. Turn slowly to your left (west to east) and you will notice that the object seems to move to your right (east to west). (MORE)
Flowers are a great addition to any garden because to the color and aromas they deliver. Where you want to put your flower garden is going to determine what types of flowers y…ou can use. For those who want to put a flower garden around a large tree, in front of a wooden fence, or against your house, it is best to use flowers that only require part sun.

The following is a list of the common garden flowers with part sun requirements.Gardeners like to add crocuses to their flower gardens because they are easy to care for.

Gardeners normally place these around shrubs or line vegetable gardens with them because of their bee magnet capabilities. Daffodils can't tolerate crowding very well, so it is important to plant them at least six inches apart.Hydrangeas are a popular flower with gardeners because of they grow just about anywhere, and they come in a wide variety of colors. These late-blooming flowers bloom in the summer and fall. In the warmer climates, sometimes they stay in bloom through the winter.

They only thrive in climates where the summer gets hot, and the winters don't get colder than 20 degrees Fahrenheit. Unlike other flowering plants, the best time to prune it is late winter.

Finding a vacuum that is right for you will make the housework chores much easier. The big question for most people thinking of purchasing in a vacuum, is the age-old argument… of canister vs upright vacuum. In short, both have their pros and cons and it is mostly a case of personal preference. However, here are a handful of pointers to help you make the decision.When looking at the difference between a canister and an upright vacuum, you need to think about how they would affect you. An upright vacuum has a motor and a suction head. A canister only has a suction head; this is the main difference. Equally, you push an upright vacuum forward and pull a canister vacuum behind you. The canister vacuum is a wheeled body with a suction piece attached, whereas an upright vacuum is both vacuum and holder all in one.The biggest plus of a canister vacuum is maneuverability. You are not restricted to straight lines and right angles as a canister vacuum can move in all directions. Furthermore, as it is based around a long suction hose, it is easier to reach under tables and other furniture. A canister vacuum is very compact so it can fit in small places without taking up too much room. It can sit under hanging clothes in a wardrobe for example, without interfering with the clothing. It is also relatively light. This makes it easier to carry up and down stairs.People who prefer upright vacuums often complain about having to lug a vacuum behind them when using a canister. It can take up a great deal of energy, especially if the vacuum is full. Equally, there is less control with a canister vacuum. It is pulled by a bendy hose, meaning the wheeled body can scoot out and hit furniture, leaving marks and dents. Furthermore, its lack of control can lead to ankle and heel injuries. Moreover, heads need to be manually changed when using on different surfaces. Canister vacuums also often cost more.Firstly, upright vacuums, especially newer models, often have a self-propelling function. This makes it easier to push, using up less energy. The reach is very good on an upright vacuum so you do not have to run around all over the place. The heads do not need to be changed manually as you can alter the head on the motor setting by flipping a switch. For those with back problems, upright vacuums reduce the amount you need to bend down. Often cheaper, upright vacuums hold more debris. This also saves you money on vacuum bags.Upright vacuums suffer from being restricted by size. It is difficult for them to fit into tight spaces, meaning you need to use the nozzle. Equally, they cannot as easily be tucked away in a cupboard. They can be quite heavy, so households with lots of stairs can be difficult to vacuum. The cord is not retractable which can be annoying when carrying out the chore.In conclusion, finding the right vacuum for you, depends on your preferences and situation. Someone with lots of stairs in their house may prefer a light canister vacuum. However, someone with back problems may want to avoid bending over, leading them to an upright vacuum. There is no true answer to the canister vs upright vacuum debate; it is your choice as to what suits you best.When purchasing a vacuum, test it out beforehand. Always ask the store manager if you can plug it in and use it. This will give you a better feel for how it works when it is turned on. You may find you prefer something different when the power of suction is behind it. (MORE)
Choosing a vacuum cleaner is like most other household appliances. Both canister and upright models have pros and cons. The one that is best for you depends on the type of cle…aning you do. It also depends on your personal preferences. How much room you have to store the machine accessories is another factor.An upright vacuum stands up vertically. The motor and suction mechanisms are in the front of the machine. The handle is used to guide the machine through the cleaning motions by pushing and retracting the unit. A canister vacuum has a large, tube-like body with wheels on the bottom. It is pulled along behind the operator. The cleaning is done through a hose and nozzle attached to the body, which houses the motor and dirt collection bag.A canister vacuum makes it easier to clean under low tables and chairs. The flexible hose is easy to manipulate for both high and low jobs. The weight of the machine lies in its body, so it's easy on the back and arms. The attachments for dusting and other tasks typically attach to the canister for easy storage. Canisters are easy to store in small spaces such as hall or guest closets.Some find pulling the canister through the house tedious and inconvenient. The canister can easily crash into furniture legs and mar them. To switch between cleaning carpets and bare floors, the nozzle has to be changed. Changing the bag in a canister vacuum is often challenging. Canister vacuums are typically more expensive than upright models.For quick clean ups, upright vacuum cleaners are more convenient. They can just be pulled out of the closet and plugged in and they're ready to go, without any attachments. The self-propelled motor in some models moves them backward and forward, requiring less labor. The head can be adjusted for bare floors and carpeting by tapping a foot switch. The bag in uprights generally holds more dirt than a canister, which saves time and money.It's hard to reach tight spaces with an upright. The motor and sweeper housing is too tall to fit under low tables and chairs. The upright style takes up more room in closets than canisters. The handle wrinkles hanging clothes if it's stored in a closet. If you have to clean a two-story house, carrying an upright up and down stairs is tiring.Vacuum cleaner designs get better every year. Both canisters and uprights are available with removable receptacles that hold the dirt, making replacement bags unnecessary. Many styles have retractable cords, which make storage easier. When shopping for a vacuum cleaner, go to a specialty store where you can test several styles and models before you buy. The more comfortable you are with the machine, the easier and faster your cleaning chores will be completed.Although several inventors developed cleaning machines and systems in the 1800s, the first patented motorized vacuum cleaner wasn't developed until 1901. Hubert Cecil Booth, a British engineer, gets credit for the invention. His machine was a large unit that was fueled by gas and pulled in a horse-drawn carriage. The long tubes were fed through the window of the first building he cleaned, which was a restaurant. (MORE)
