BP Oil Spill

The BP oil spill, also known as the Deepwater Horizon spill, occurred in late April 2010 when a oil well exploded in the Gulf of Mexico and killed 11 people. The disastrous spill gushed millions of gallons of oil into the Gulf and is considered an environmental catastrophe and one of the worst offshore oil spills in U.S. history.

Where can you find a sample hardship letter to help you write to a creditor who has repossessed your vehicle?

Answer

Go to www.nolo.com for answers to most everyday legal questions, including sample letters.

You will get more out of it if you find a book you like there and either buy it, or get it at your library. It has a great step by step manual WITH ALL FORMS (!!) to file for bankruptcy, for instance.

Answer

Here's a link to one I found: http://www.foreclosurebeat.com/a_hardship_letter_020804.htm

Answer

Debtors who STAY in contact with Lenders dont usually need this. The lenders are AWARE of your payment records to them and others. Their confidence in you is built by CONTACT and exchange of info. Telling a lender of your hardship will do little if anything good AFTER they have repossessed your collateral. Money TALKS and Everyone else WALKS. Good Luck with your letters.

What is tripping pipe on an oil rig?

The term "tripping the well" got it's start most likely as a reference to the "round trip" made by the drill bit. The first leg of the trip is coming out of the hole, by lifting the entire drill string and unscrewing the upper most drill pipe called a joint, the newly removed drill pipe is laid beside the rig and the drill string is lifted again, etc. until all drill pipe is out of the hole. After service work is performed, for example change to fresh drill bit, then the second leg of the trip is to reverse the process, lowering the drill string as each new joint is made until fully back in the hole with the bit on bottom. You can find a lot of interesting videos on offshore rigs, jobs, etc here:

I left the previous answer in place:

When drill pipe is lowered or put into the well in the well, it is called running in or is tripping into the well. When drill pipe is raised or pull out of the well, it is call running out or tripping out of the well.

Why is the oil spill problem so important?

The oil spill problem is important because of the short and long term implications.

National Geographic reported in detail on many of the impacts and dangers of the BP oil Spill.

This situation impacts the food chain from the bottom level up. Humans are showing high levels of toxic chemicals in their blood stream. The "responsible" Gulf fishing industry has been destroyed. Not to say that there isn't fishing and shrimping happening. In fact even though are government is holding data proving this sea food is toxic they are allowing it to be sold on the open market and now have a plan to feed it to our military.

The darkest of important issues is the Bilouxi dome / Macando region which is a under sea volcano that has been punctured into it's core. The reason so much of the oil in the ocean appears red is because it contains magma. We have big problems. Not to mention the scientific theories of the methane explosion pending which can in turn create another Ice Age.

Really scary stuff, but that doesn't make it false.

Should the Gulf Oil Spill be capitalized?

Yes of course! Anything name or place should be capitalized.

It would depend on the context. If "Gulf Oil Spill" were a newspaper headline all the words in this case would be capitalised. However, under normal circumstances, only the word "Gulf" is referring to a specific place, so the other words would not be capitalised.

What items are used to clean up ocean oil spills?

  • Booms -- Floating barriers placed around the oil or around whatever is leaking the oil. Booms contain the oil so skimmers can collect it.
  • Skimmers -- Boats, vacuum machines, and oil-absorbent plastic ropes that skim spilled oil from the water's surface after booms have corralled it. The skimmer collects oil into a container so it can be removed.
  • Chemical dispersants -- Materials that break down the oil into its chemical constituents. This helps disperse the oil and make it less harmful to wildlife and shorelines.
  • In-situ burning -- Igniting freshly spilled oil while it's still floating on the water.

When your oil burner ignites it always starts and stops and starts again in rapid succession?

There are two possibilities that could be the cause of your problem.If you are referring to the flame igniting and then shutting off the problem could be with your burners having difficulty maintaining a unimpeded flame, due to dirt build -up. When the flame goes out and the thermostat demands heat, the ignitor tries to restart the flame and the process repeats itself. If you are speaking of the heat cycle itself being of short and repeated duration in order to satisfy the thermostats requirements, then the problem lays with theHeat intissipator that is located within your thermostat. It is the small level inside that usually has a small pointer with marked graduations the is there to adjust the heat cycle itself.The scale usually goes from .10 to 1.2. Most thermostats work best at.8. It is adjusted by removing the thermostats cover and gently adjusting the slider to the desired level. This can be accomplished by the average person if care is exercised. If the burners are fouled, the cleaning should be done by a qualified technician so that the burner heads can also be adjusted to give maximum efficientcy. Most heating contractors offer reasonable rates for this problem. Signed Been there...done that.

Can a loose battery cable cause other electrical problems?

== == A loose battery cable will allow the alternator to run 'open circuit'. This puts the engine computer and other equipment under alot of strain from having to deal with very poor quality power. (essentially pulsed dc with some high voltage spikes and varying with engine RPM) The battery greatly stabilizes this dirty power. Assuming you didn't fry your engine computer, I'd try just resetting it. Disconnect the negative battery cable. Wait 5 minutes. Hook it back up. Try to start it. Beware of doing this if you have an anti-theft radio or an ignition key with a chip in it. You'll likely end up needing the dealer. The harder the copper wire presses the more energy will flow through it.
