NEWS DETAILS: Flush with Ideas to Improve Toilets, Researchers Try Rice Nov 19, 2013

Today is World Toilet Day (http://worldtoiletday.org/) and rice has contributed to providing this sanitation device to more people through better efficiency.You’ve probably not spent much time thinking about the technology that makes toilets possible. The Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation is changing that with their Reinvent the Toilet Challenge, which encourages researchers to create a cost-effective toilet that can remove germs from the waste, recover valuable resources, and operate without a substantive network of water, sewer, and electrical lines. Research teams can apply for grants to help them with development.

So how do they test the toilets to see how well they work? They create fake feces.After extensive testing, they found the perfect recipe – one that might sound a little like dinner: it is composed of soybean paste and rice and made on a machine like the ones that make sausages. This combination most closely mimics the real thing in weight and the way it breaks down, and its consistency can easily be altered. Since they began testing in 2003, toilet capacity has increased from 335 grams to over 650 grams in a single flush – nearly three times the average deposit! They’ve also revealed solarpowered toilets that generate electricity and toilets that extract useful elements and resources from the waste.

When Weather Turns Cold, Your Skin Doesn’t Have to Turn Dry – Rice to the Rescue Daily Rice E-Newsletter by Rice Plus Magazine www.ricepluss.com News and R&D Section mujajhid.riceplus@gmail.com Cell # 92 321 369 2874


Nov 19, 2013

Winter is quickly approaching in the Northern Hemisphere, and for lots of people that means months of dry, itchy skin. Decreased humidity and exposure to wind and cold take a toll on our skin. Moreover, many people suffer from chronic dehydration in the winter because we tend to drink less water when it’s cool outside. This dehydration is reflected in the dryness of our skin, which gets bumpy, red, and rough.You can easily spend lots of money on fancy lotions and potions claiming to provide that extra hydration your skin needs, but why not whip something up with ingredients you have in your kitchen? It’s a much more cost-efficient choice, and it doesn’t take but a few minutes to craft the recipe. This particular recipe is inspired by a treatment in the Maldives, so it uses traditional Maldivian ingredients. However, most of them are probably already on your spice rack. The one exception is rice powder or brown rice flour, which can be found at some grocery stores or specialty stores. To make this dry, rough skin remedy, combine equal parts of the following: • Nutmeg • Turmeric • Ginger • Cinnamon • Cloves • Rice powder (or brown rice flour) Then, slowly add hot water to the mixture until it is a paste-like consistency. Apply to your body, making sure to focus on rough spots like knees and elbows and anywhere your skin needs smoothing. Leave on the skin for 15 minutes or so; you may feel the paste start to get warm. Wash it off, and enjoy your new, smooth skin! Tags: dry skin, rice remedies, winter, body scrub, rice beauty products

again active today, however large offers noted slightly above the session highs likely limited their aggressiveness as they decided to be patient in an attempt to get better fills. Negativity in outside markets likely added additional pressure to the rice market. The other grains were seen mixed; soybeans finished the day about 0.9% lower at $12.7625 per bushel; wheat finished about 1.3% higher at $6.5025 per bushel; and corn finished the day about 1.4% higher at $4.1875 per bushel.U.S. stocks tallied mild declines on Tuesday as investors wait to hear from the Federal Reserve in weighing central-bank monetary moves ahead. Fed Chairman Ben Bernanke speaks at a dinner Tuesday night, and Wednesday brings the release of minutes from the last Federal Open Market Committee meeting. The Dow Jones Industrial Average wavered on either side of neutral. On Monday, the blue-chip index cleared 16,000 for the first time and ended with a slight gain and its fourth straight record close. The S&P 500 slid. Utilities paced losses and financials performed the best among its 10 major industry groups. On Monday the benchmark climbed to an intraday record and surpassed the 1,800 level before finishing the session with a modest loss. After the prior day's close snapped a six-session winning streak, the Nasdaq was lately lower. U.S. stock markets are currently trading down about 0.1%, gold is trading about 0.1% higher, crude oil is seen trading about 0.4% higher, and the U.S. dollar is seen trading about 0.2% lower at about 2:00pm Chicago time.Looking to the daily continuation chart of Chicago rough rice futures for January delivery, after an early morning attempt to break through the nearby high of $15.895 per cwt (about $350 per ton) failed the market traded between incremental gains and losses for the majority of the session. Ultimately the nearby contract settled just a tick lower as large offers overhead limited gains. Technically today’s action is seen as supportive as prices marked a higher high and higher low from the previous session. The expanding Bollinger bands also provide additional support as the upper Bollinger band moves higher to provide an ever increasing price objective, noted at $15.952 per cwt (about $352 per ton) today. As mentioned the market will first have to overcome nearby resistance marked by the nearby high before moving to test secondary resistance or ultimately psychological resistance at $16.000 per cwt (about $353 per ton). Today’s trading range is noted as $15.765-$15.895 per cwt (about $348-$350 per ton).Monday, there were 370 contracts traded, down from 374 contracts traded on Friday. Open interest – the number of contracts outstanding – on Monday increased by 12 contracts to 8,212. Tags: chicago rough rice futures

Local sources say that the government must import rice soon to prevent hoarding and consequent steep price rises ahead of Christmas next month.The Philippines has imported around 210,445 tons of
