Why does casting shrink in casting process?
when the metal transition occurs from hot molten state to cold state then its volume get reduce by the evulutaion of heat due to metal solidification and it shrins so its remedy is that fill the molten metal slowly & properly & fill it upto sprue so that when it shrinks the molten metal from sprue move down & fill the casting properly

Warhammer 40k Is it better to glue models first or paint first?
Answer It is easier to paint before gluing, but then there is the problem of getting the paint all over your fingers, as it can be quite difficult to hold onto such a small piece. If you paint the pieces while they are still on the sprue, it leaves little plastic bits, unpainted where you break it off the sprue when you have finished. The best way is for you to glue together the parts that would be easy to reach, (i.e. nothing in the way) then when you have painted them, add on the bits that would have blocked painting the rest of the model. Paint in stages, while gluing is the best idea basically.

What autoimmune disorder attacks the digestive sys?
Celiac disease is an auoimmune disease that attacks the digestive system, specificall the small intestine. It is also known as celiac sprue. The body's immune system responds to the presence of gluten, an ingredient in many grains, and damages the intestine in the process. also: lupus erythematosus is one aswell
Definition Tropical sprue is a condition seen in residents of, or visitors to, tropical areas. It impairs the absorption of nutrients from the intestines, causing malabsorption. See also: Celiac disease - sprue Causes, incidence, and risk factors The cause of this disease is swelling (inflammation) of the small intestine due to excess levels of certain types of bacteria in the intestines. Risk factors are: Living in the tropics Long periods of travel to tropical destinations Symptoms Abdominal cramps Diarrhea, worse on high-fat diet Excessive gas (flatus) Indigestion Irritability Muscle cramps Numbness Paleness Weight loss Signs and tests Complete blood count (CBC) Comprehensive metabolic panel Enteroscopy Folate level (serum) Iron level (serum) Stool examination for bacteria and parasites Upper endoscopy Upper GI series Vitamin B12 level (serum) Treatment Treatment begins with plenty of fluids and electrolytes. Replacement of folate, iron, vitamin B12, and other nutrients may also be needed. Antibiotic therapy with tetracycline or another broad-spectrum antibiotic is given at the beginning of treatment. Oral tetracycline is usually not prescribed for children until after all of their permanent teeth have appeared, because it can permanently discolor teeth that are still forming. Expectations (prognosis) The outcome is good with treatment. Complications Vitamin and mineral deficiencies are common complications. In children, sprue leads to: Delay in the maturing of bones (skeletal maturation) Growth failure Calling your health care provider Call your health care provider if: Tropical sprue symptoms get worse or do not improve with treatment You develop new symptoms You have diarrhea or other symptoms of this disorder for a long period of time, especially after spending time in the tropics Prevention Other than avoiding living in or traveling to tropical climates, there is no known prevention for tropical sprue.
