Few Reasons Why You Must Own a BeefEater BBQ in Your Lifetime

Do you love to barbecue? I, for one, love and enjoy playing host or visitor at a barbecue parties. There’s a lot of fun and entertainment, not to mention the good food. Many people find the experience exhausting and so I did before trying a BeefEater barbecue. Thanks to the right kind of appliances I have now, barbecuing has become simple, and inviting friends home for some entertainment over fresh cooked meat translates us to pleasure. 😉

Things don’t happen just like that, of course; it takes a well-designed barbecue to get the job done. Here are a few special features of BeefEater barbecues which make my experience satisfying and enjoyable.

Structure & Design:


A fully welded barbecue frame: BeefEater barbecues are fully welded unlike regular barbecues which are spot-welded or bolted down together. This means that there will be a lesser mess as the barbecue doesn’t leak.

Stainless steel barbecue frames: BeefEater barbecues are made from ‘304’ grade stainless steel, which is a preferred grade of steel used in making cooking appliances normally. This kind of material prevents corrosion and I find it very easy to clean.

Porcelain enamel body: The barbecue also comes with a porcelain enamel body which is one of the toughest appliance coatings available in the world. Porcelain has a non-porous surface that prevents bacteria from getting in. It doesn’t burn and is scratch resistant, keeping your barbecue looking clean and new, year after year. 🙂

Roasting Hoods:

I find roasting hoods to be very important while I barbecue my meats, especially while I am trying to get them all well done in a single stretch. With a BeefEater barbecue I am able to do this, as it has a lot of roasting space with good ventilation that helps them all to be cooked evenly. The roasting hood also comes with a removable warming rack and a thermometer. I use the thermometer at times when I am unsure of the cooking time required for a particular kind of meat to be cooked.


If you are looking for different kinds of trolleys, I am sure you’ll be able to get the right one based on your budget and your requirements. I, for one, have two trolleys, a four burner barbecue for our home, and a two burner barbecue for beach house.

Core Features of BeefEater Barbecues:

Quartz Start technology: This technology is quite easy to use, and it comes built in with all burners. All you need to do is depress and turn the control knob to start your burner. This technology is a lot safer than the push button system which may cause accidents. Quartz Start technology doesn’t work on batteries, so you’ll never have to worry about battery replacements.

Stainless steel vaporiser grid system: Working with the BBQ is made easy using this system and it adds flavour to your meat too. This system is used to vaporise juices immediately as they fall off the meat. As the juice evaporates, the flavour of the meat is retained and this rules out the use of a grease management tray in the BBQ.

Precision flame control: There were many times I had gotten frustrated with my old barbecue as it was hard to keep the flame of my burner under control. But with a BeefEater barbecue things are a lot easier, as it comes with precision flame control which is seen in many high-tech kitchen gadgets. This precision engineered gas control can also be used to reduce or increase the flame on your burner, giving you a variety of barbecue options. Now cooking my meat rare or well done isn’t such a big deal anymore.

There were times when I used to find myself dreading barbecue parties at home; all the smoke would just go up my hair, my nose and eyes. I even had a problem with flare-ups, when the fat melted off the meat. And as you are barbecuing using flammable items, the grease always added to the drama. Now, with a BeefEater barbecue, life in the world of barbecuing has become so easy. I am having fun barbecuing, are you?

Inequality and Microfinance Opportunities

Having realized that poverty can’t be eliminated through donations only, we need to develop a structure that provides equal opportunities for everybody and thus brighten their future at all stages of life. One such structure, developed by economists from the World Bank, Brazil and Argentina is Human Opportunity Index (HOI,) provides a method of classifying and rectifying the reasons that bring inequalities in opportunity, particularly for children. The study primarily focuses on children because:

“As a whole, societies with greater inequality of basic opportunities among children are more likely to show inequalities later in the life cycle, despite individuals who beat the odds through their effort, talent and luck.”

The same study also tries to measure inopportunity and makes this significant discovery:

“Between one fourth and one half of income inequality observed among Latin America and the Caribbean adults is due to personal circumstances endured during childhood that fell outside of their control or responsibility, such as race, gender, birthplace, parent’s educational level and their father’s occupation.”

The HOI help recognizing the circumstances over which the child has no control, like its location, race, availability of clean water and electricity and education of parents, but all these can affect the economic future of a child. It also offers statistical data as proof on many prevailing factors which can shape children’s access to opportunities and direct them to a more useful lifer on getting government support, community development programs and even microfinance. These tools are instrumental in providing access to potable water and electricity, perking up literacy rates, and enhancing parents’ incomes. All these go to create a helpful way of offering them a level playing field and open the doors of opportunity.

How do microfinance opportunities contribute to a child’s economic outlook?

Micro financing is a way of offering financial services including loans, saving plus insurance to poor entrepreneurs so that they can improve their small businesses. It has been realized by ACCION International that on availing these financial services poor entrepreneurs can improve their productivity and make more money and thus make savings that can be utilized for the overall benefit of the family thereby enabling them to pay for vaccinations, school fees, improve condition of home and offer clean water and healthy food for their families. ACCION points out that access to financial services to working poor benefit their children.

Here is real story of Juan Pirir, a farmer cum furniture maker from Guatemala. During his childhood Juan needed to work in the fields and thus couldn’t go to school and get educated. With the help of microfinance services, he is now the father of six children.

As per HOI, Guatemala is the lowest-ranking country in offering   opportunities for education of children. The study reveals that uneducated parents living in rural areas and working as agricultural laborers have many children, who have almost zero likelihood of doing well in later life.

Thankfully, Juan could seek loan from Génesis Empresarial, allowing him to replace his manual tools with electric ones. As a result, his production of furniture went up by three times and profit tripled. At present his workshop has all the tools and he employs three local boys from his neighborhood as part time helpers. Availability of fund through microfinance gave him an opportunity to improve his business, enabling him to have a new roof over his family house and send all his six children to school!

Wind Power

Dodgy Reports, Fossil Fuel Fluctuations and Bird Life: Why Wind Farms Still Have to Battle for their Right to Exist

Compared to most other renewable energy sources, wind power seems to attract its fair share of doubters and naysayers. There’s something about these huge pillars with their slowly revolving props that seems to split opinion. Whether it’s a question of their true energy producing efficiency or simply their aesthetic appeal, more than any other renewable energy wind has had to fight for its kudos in the green agenda.

With a recent report that stated people in the UK were more in favour of renewable technologies rather than against, it may be surprising that the debate about wind is still ongoing.


The Wind Farms that are ‘De-Rating’

Only recently a dubious report on the number of smaller wind farms ‘de-rating’ in order to get more government and EU subsidies was largely discounted by Ofgem who said there was little evidence to support the idea. The information was supplied by a public relations company, acting for a small turbine company called Vergnet, and was a report that largely targeted just one wind power company, EWT, saying they were pretending that over 100 of their farms were operating at a lower power level to get more public money.

As the Guardian reported this month, Ofgem have stated that companies have not been able to fix the system and they are paid on a production basis dependent on the Feed in Tariff. According to the newspaper report Ofgem added that “the main losers from the current subsidy system are makers of small turbines, such as Vergnet.”

With research like this making the headlines, it’s often difficult to discover the real truth when it comes to wind power. The BBC recently reported that investing in more renewables such as wind could help to offset the destabilising effect of fluctuating fossil fuel prices. The cost of oil has come plummeting down in recent months, a good thing for consumers, but not necessarily a great thing for the future of the world economy.

The report by Cambridge Econometrics suggest that we will be reaching a time when the supply of fossil fuels such as oil will begin to diminish and these will have to be replaced. If this comes from our gas supplies and their price increases by 30% then the impact on electricity prices could see an increase of 8%. If, however, we are more reliant on the power produced by wind farms, that price rise may only be as little as 4%.

According to co-author of the report, Sarah Billington: “For the wind scenario, you have higher upfront capital costs but fewer uncertain variable costs, leading to more price resilience.” The trouble is that the report was commissioned for RenewablesUK that has a vested interested in technologies such as wind farms.

Challenges to Wind Farm Projects

Wind farms don’t just come under attack, or indeed get support, from people with questionable statistics. There are plenty of pressure groups and individuals who object to the aesthetic appeal of the towers, whether they are a successful technology for producing electricity or not. The latest major stumbling block for energy companies in Scotland is the RSPB who have raised a legal challenge against the construction of 4 large scale wind farm projects.

The developments are intended for the Firth of Forth and the Firth of Tay and had originally received approval but with strict conditions in respect of protecting the environment, something that Friends of the Earth were happy with. But the RSPB has said the impact on wildlife in the area is far too great and could have consequences for preservation in the future.

The company planning to build the wind farms, Scottish Renewables, said they had taken every care to comply with the planning conditions and that the building of new, clean energy was part of protecting the environment and reversing the impact of climate change that was a direct threat to wildlife such as birds. The senior policy manager for the company added: “”This new delay will make it even harder for Scotland to catch up with the rest of UK and northern Europe, which already have a sizeable offshore wind industry and supply chain supporting thousands of jobs.”

Using the power of wind to drive our energy production has been one of our goals since the late 17th Century and we were using it in our windmills to grind corn and wheat for thousands of years before that. Anyone who lives near the coast in the UK has become used to the wind turbines out on the horizon, powering thousands of homes and reducing our reliance on fossil fuels. It seems strange that we have invested so much in the technology and yet are still, quite often, ill at ease with it.

And perhaps that has more to do with the way they crowd the skyline rather than their ability to provide us with an independent and valuable source of power. In truth, wind power is providing an increasingly significant part of the power that we need to live our daily lives and will continue to do so well into this century.

Perhaps it’s time we stopped making excuses for its failure and began embracing it as one of the true green technologies of the 21st Century.

Names of Music

Are you familiar with the name mahalo uke? if not, then you might want to make yourself familiar with it. There are many names of music, and from my experience I can say that the more you know about it, the more likely you are to find an instrument that you will really like. If you are bored with your electric guitar or piano, consider trying out something very original, something you have never tried before.

Spoken English Classes

To be honest, I cannot imagine living in this day and age without knowing English. Everything I do in my everyday life has to do with my knowledge of the English language: my work, the games I play, all the social interactions, etc. I strongly believe that being able to speak and understand English is vital in today’s world and that no person should ignore the importance of being able to communicate in fluent English.

It is possible to learn English with the help of Skype English Classes. As a matter of fact, I really like it that it is indeed possible to learn English over the Internet as this way people don’t even have to leave their homes when they want to learn the language. Attending live Spoken English Classes can prove to be problematic to some people who don’t have an opportunity to travel to their teacher, but a quick and effective Skype English Class can easily remedy the problem and make everything a lot better and a lot more convenient.

I personally recommend Skype English classes as I see them as a great way to gain knowledge about this wonderful language. And even if you think that you are fluent in it and believe that you know it well, you might be surprised to discover that there are some things you might have missed out. I suggest that you make yourself familiar with the possibilities that await you when it comes to learning English and that you take action as fast as possible. No one should waste their time by not learning English. In this day and age, English is mandatory in business, social interactions as well as entertainment. There is absolutely no way a person would do well without knowing this wonderful language that is widely spoken in all parts of the world.
