Ankace Grow Light Review 36 Indoor LED Grow Lights

List of Benefits of this product
1) CYCLE TIMING FUNCTION – You can set 2 groups of timers for the 2 plant lights for different sets of plants. Different plants require different timings. Check out the guide below

a) Short-day plants – 12 hours per day
b) Long day plants – 14 to 18 hours per day
c) Day neutral plants 8 to 12 hours per day all year round

You can grow 2 types of plants if you like with this understanding and timing function.

a) Short day flowers and plants include chrysanthemums, kalanchoe, azaleas and begonias.
b) Long-day plants
include most seedlings for vegetables and garden flowers.
c) Day-neutral plants
including foliage plants, geraniums, coleus and African violets

2) It is versatile and can be used at various locations and situations like hydroponic greenhouse at your home or your own office.  As you can see from benefit number 1, certain plants require long hours of light to have good growth. You can essentially speed up the growth of your plants and flowers easily with the timer controlled lights besides being versatile enough to be used a various locations at your home and office. It is a dual benefit that works hand in hand with each other.

3) BEST RED/BLUE LED COMBINATION

The LED Lights of Red And Blue each have their function for providing great health to the plants and flowers

a) The 12 Blue LED helps the plant in synthesis of chlorophyll and allows them to take in more energy and nutrients. This make your plant more nutrient dense and less light to wither and cause browing.

b) 24 Red LED chip helps in 3 ways
b1) germination
b2) flowering, and
b3) enhances photosynthesis for better results.

What does germination mean?
The grow light helps the seedling to grow to a structured plant. Other factors come into play for it to become successful like temperature, water, oxygen or air. Light is also an important factor.

For Flowering, a important factor is the physiological reaction of plants and flowers to the length of day or night. That is where the timing function of this Ankace Grow Light is so important.

Photosynthesis is a process used by plants  convert light energy into chemical energy such as carbohydrates and sugars that can later be released to give fuel to such plants and flowers.

4)  FIVE 5)5)DIMMABLE MODES & 3 SWITCH MODES

For various stages of the plant growth requires different light intensity. I suppose for most plants as they grow bigger, they require more grow light. There are 5 modes making it flexible and easy to adjust.

For seedlings they require 120–150 micromoles/sec/m²

Most houseplants need between 50 and 1,000 foot candles

For flowers, it is 2000 to 3000 Kelvin Range.

Even for seedlings, houseplants and flowers, they all require different modes of lighting themselves at various stages.

3 switch modes include, turning on red led only, blue only or turning both on. It really depends on whether it is a (blue) plant or (red) flowering plant.

In a nutshell, Plants that get alot of blue light will have strong, healthy stems and leaves. Red light is gives flowering plants ability to produce healthy flowers and fruit.

5) ADJUSTABLE DESIGN – It has a usb connector that you can connect to your home or office.  It has a 360 degrees gooseneck that can be adjusted so that it can light up wider area of plants and flowers. The main factor is the angle at which the grow light is shining on the plants and flowers.

Good reviews from other actual users

  1. There are people who grow succulents and peppers and have been getting good results. They all gave positive feedback.
  2. They also mentioned the price is good and affordable for its good function and flexibility.
  3. The clamp is strong and sturdy.  You can clamp it at any place you deem good and comfortable for your plants and flowers.
  4. People have been successful in getting seedlings to grow well.
  5. Some of them also felt the light is stronger than expected.
  6. Some of their dying plants came back to life after using this Ankace LED Grow Light.

Future Food – Anthony’s Future Universe (Part 1)

It is a pity that you have never seen trees so green,

water so clear and blue,

strawberries that taste so sweet…

All you have ever known is a reddish foggy sky and this kind of dry cardboard that you eat for survival

Evolution of Food

In the past, food for human consisted of vegetation and plants. However, as human start to encounter more animals or in attempts to fight off animals for survival, animal meat slowly became part of the diet.

After the invention of fire, raw meat was cooked and due to the killing of bacteria by high temperature, meat became safer for consumption and hence more popular.

With the invention of refrigerator and ways to preserve food, it was possible to keep both meat and vegetables for a longer period of time.

With the invention and improvement of transport systems, food are created in huge quantities and distributed all over the world, which is why we have such a huge variety of food to choose from nowadays.

GM Food

Genetically modified food is produced in an attempt to increase food supply by increasing the rate of growth and resistance of crops to ensure the reliability of food supply. These are the pros. However the cons of GM food also involve the fact that since food has been genetically modified, it is not natural. It has been linked to the cause of illness eg. Breast Cancer.

At the end of the day, so some people doubt the safety of consuming such food, where the harmful effects may only be shown in the far future, or even in the next few generations.

Instant Food

When we talk about Instant food, the first thing that comes to many people’s mind is instant cup noodles, the savior of many poor students’ stomach during while studying in the wee hours of the morning.

With the advancement of technology, food is dried and made more compact for easier and cheaper storage and delivery. Such packet food are commonly consumed in the army (Video of army food) or distributed to people who are in need of food after natural disasters.

Health Freaks and Fitness Guru

As people start falling sick and dying due to environmental factors, stress and the food they eat, more emphasis has been placed on the food that we bring into our body. Protein shakes, vitamin pills, turmeric pills, garlic pills are trending as people start to look at food as a way to produce the results they want, eg, bigger muscles, better immune system or slimmer body.

Diets are popping up

Eg. The raw food diet where people only eat food that is not heated to ensure that the enzymes in the food are not killed, going back to the times of how their ancestors eat

Vitamins and Nutritious Food

People are starting to consume Vitamin A, B, C, D as they realize they may not be consuming enough from their daily diet. People who are sick are also trying an holistic range of healing which include consuming multivitamins and nutritious food.

Superfood

20 years ago, small mobile phones and cameras are like something from science fiction. In this movie meatball, food are created with the press of a button.

What is our Future Food Going to Be Like? – Spirulina – Anthony’s Future Universe (Part 2)

What if food of the future is packed with all the essential vitamins and nutrients already? What if food just consist of a few pills or tablets? What will happen to our teeth? Will it disappear eventually due to evolution?

Future Food (Part 1) Anthony’s Future Universe Part 1

Future Food: Superfood

20 years ago, small mobile phones and cameras are like something from science fiction. In this movie meatball, food are created with the press of a button.

Cloudy With A Chance Of Meatball

What if in the future, food is also created in a compact liquid or solid powder?

In the movie Soylent Green, real food like strawberry jam or spinach are luxury item, while the poor can only afford soylent, which look like cracker. (Spoilers: The source of the food soylent is actually human – to solve the overpopulation issues of aging society – environmentally friendly? But is it really safe for consumption with people taking all kinds of drugs etc…)

Soylent Green Trailer

In the movie Snowpiercer ((Hangul: 설국열차; Hanja: 雪國列車; RRSeolgungnyeolcha) is a 2013 English-language South Korean-Czech science fiction action film based on the French graphic novel Le Transperceneige), people eat food that consist of cockroaches for its protein. Of course no one knew those were cockroaches.

Snowpiercer Chris Evans Movie

 

Spirulina

One superfood that looks like it is going to be the food of the future is Siprulina. It is a natural food with the perfect source of balanced nutrition.

Spirulina had already gained recognition as a powerful functional food since 1974.

United Nations World Food Conference calls it the best food of the future and the World Health Organization classify it as a superfood.

http://www2.elken.com/wp/healthcare/spirulina/10-reasons-why-elken-spirulina-is-the-perfect-source-of-balanced-nutrition/

Personally, I take Elken organic Spirulina tablet as a diet supplement. Some consume it to lose weight, gain weight (for me), improve health, detoxification, to supplement healing process. For some cancer patients, due to the inability of their body to absorb nutrients from food as their body has become too weak, they take extra spirulina tablets.

Basically, we consume food, ranging from rice, potato, carbs, to junk food. However, how much nutrient are we really getting?

Consuming 30 spirulina tablets is equivalent to eating 160 oranges, the daily required intake of  RDA of Beta-Carotene

The concentration of B-carotene in Spirulina is 40-60 times higher than those found in spinach and 25 times higher than those found in carrots.
1 tablet of Spirulina = 1 kg of cabbage
1 tablet of Spirulina = 18 apples

According to http://www.urbanhealth.com.my/food/spirulina-the-superfood/, 

Not only does spirulina solves malnutrition, it also improves cholesterol level and health in general, check out the next post for more info! 🙂

If you are interested to know more about the difference between organic spirulina, the possible dangers of spirulina, comment below, and i will create videos to answer your queries.

History and future of clothing – Ancient Clothing to Negative Ion

1. 1. 1) Ancient Clothing

“Clothing can be and has in the past been made from a very wide variety of materials. Materials have ranged from leather and furs to woven materials, to elaborate and exotic natural and synthetic fabrics. Not all body coverings are regarded as clothing. Articles carried rather than worn (such as purses), worn on a single part of the body and easily removed (scarves), worn purely for adornment (jewelry), or those that serve a function other than protection (eyeglasses), are normally considered accessories rather than clothing, except for shoes.”

Ancient Clothing as mentioned in https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Clothing

I suppose people in ancient times do hunting and cover themselves with fur coat of animals to keep warm. They also use clam shells as accessories. According to wikipedia, there are purses, jewellery and eye glasses as accessories as well.

2) Contemporary clothing

The Western dress code has changed over the past 500+ years. The mechanization of the textile industry made many varieties of cloth widely available at affordable prices. Styles have changed, and the availability of synthetic fabrics has changed the definition of “stylish”. In the latter half of the 20th century, blue jeans became very popular, and are now worn to events that normally demand formal attire. Activewear has also become a large and growing market.

There are also sportswear for a variety of sports such as swimming, tennis, badmintion and so on.

There is also fashionable wear like the one you see below which goes with the trends.

3) Future Clothing

Lets talk about the future of clothing. It would be healthy clothing. I know of a company called Netful that produces negative ion clothing. What is this negative ion? Kindly read the abstract below.

The included studies examined the therapeutic benefits of exposure to negative air ions on respiratory outcomes, such as ventilatory function and asthmatic symptoms. Study specific sample sizes ranged between 7 and 23, and studies varied considerably by subject characteristics (e.g., infants with asthma, adults with emphysema), experimental method, outcomes measured (e.g., subjective symptoms, sensitivity, clinical pulmonary function), analytical design, and statistical reporting.

From the excerpt above you can know that a research has been done on the benefits of negative ions.

I am excited to share a new type of clothing that uses the material called Teviron. It pushes out the bad ions and let the negative ions enter your body through the clothing. There are many testimonals. One particular testimonal is when I attended a talk and a lady who is a teacher shared that she has very bad eczema that her skin peels off. After wearing this negative ion clothing, she recovered totally.

List of Benefits of Negative Ion Clothing
1. Helps in Allergies
2. Cardiovascular System
3. High Blood Pressure
4. Menstrual Problem
5. Cancer
6. Menopausal
7. Diabetes
8. Insomnia
9. Asthma
10.Liver and Kidney Problem
11.Frozen Shoulder
12.Gout
13.Cold Limbs
14.Sciatica
15.Uric Acid
16.Water Rentention
17.Spondylitis
18.Arthritis

They all can be slowly cured if you wear the clothing.

The 4 main benefits are purfiy blood, increase cellular metabolism, strengthen immune system and regulate autonomic nerve.

The material used is called Teviron.

  1. Background of Kurata Robot

This is a giant transformer like Kurata robot that is 4 metres tall and weights 4 tons. It has a cockpit which can fit a person to control the robot. It has motion sensor technology and runs on diesel. I was thinking of the air ventilation. I believe to stay long in this robot, there has to be good air ventilation perhaps air conditioning. It has a machine gun that can fire 6000 BB Bullets a minute. It can also shoot out plastic bottles.  It runs at 10 km per hour on the road. It cost a whopping 1.3 million dollars.

1.1  My take on the future use of this robot

Real Life sized gundam can be used for a variety of purposes. It can be used for escorting and protecting people, in space to defend colonies and space stations and so on. This form of robot has weaponary and is more militaristic in nature. However as stated by the creator it is for fun and entertainment purposes.

You can control it with a 3G connection and cell phone. For your information, it is created by Suidobashi Heavy Industry. 

2. Land Walker Robot Background Info

This giant yellow and greyish robot is called land walker. It is 8.5 metres in height with weights 7 metric tons. The creator is a 44 year old engineer working for Sakakibara Kukai, a Japanese agricultural machine maker. However, it may be less flexible than the anime Gundam but I still it is kudos to the Creator of this robot who created this machine.

2.1 How does it work and its functions

To access the cockpit, you need to use a mechanical lift to lift yourself up. There are monitors and levers to control the robot’s arms and legs. Its right arm the shape of a bazooka is able to shoot sponge balls at a speed of 140 km per hour. This robot can be used for peacekeeping, escort and protection.

2.2 Purpose of Robot and a ride of your lifetime

The creator also states that his creations are merely for amusement. Renting the robots cost 100,000 Yen per hour. I suppose it is worth the ride. It would be fun and exciting to pilot a machine

3. The coming of Space Age

The space age is coming and you can see from the video below. Virgin Galactic goes to space.

3.1 Practical Use of Robots In Space

The space is age is definitely coming. The use of robots such as anime style Gundam robots will definitely have a demand. As I have said, these robots can be protectors of space construction and colonization of planets. There may be debris, space storms, alien attacks or space pirates (just a thought), therefore, there is a need for defence and protection of precious resources.

3.2 Using Robots For A Variety of Purposes On Earth and In Space

Robots can also be used for construction and agricultural purposes on Earth and In Space. You can even incorporate AI (artificial intelligence). But I still believe a pilot is necessary to control it for safety purposes.

I also think that computer anti virus and protection is necessary for such robots to safe to use. Imagine a hacker hacking into a military robot and taking control of them.

Now let’s side track a bit, the building of space stations, harbors and even structures on Earth would still need security. That is where these Gundams come in handy.

For the current creators, they have not reached the flexibility and speed yet. But I believe as technology advances, they will be greatly improved as budgets are approved for robotics with the space age catching up.
