Zsu Zsu Pets

If you’ve read this article just now, then chances are you are one of those scampering around to get your hands on those hard to find Zsu Zsu Pets. Or maybe you were living in a cave somewhere in Afghanistan for more than a month now and just come out to know about the hottest craze among the ever-demanding 5-10 year old American consumer.

What are Zsu Zsu Pets?

Zsu Zsu pets are actually four little toy hamsters with wheels and sensors which enables them to run around, bump and make a turn, sniff, make cute squirmy noises over and over again on the floor or in their hamster habitat. These four cute furry friends are touted to have four unique personalities.

CHUNK. This laid back surfing hamster is famous for chilling out, hanging back and laying low but he’s off and running with a sniff of slamming surf.

  1. SQUIGGLES. He is the one who is always on the go to explore around. He’s been around and has lived to tell his experience. Love him, pet him and watch him go.

NUM NUMS. She is the tracker and if there’s something which attracts this cute and fussy little friend’s highly trained sniffer, she can easily tract down those munchies.

PIPSQUEAK. She is the daredevil of the group. Just give her the wiggle room and she’ll do her stuff. She may be small and petite and she’s quite a powerhouse.

If you are lucky enough to be able to get your hands on these four little pets, the kids would enjoy it more with the Hamster Funhouse, their Adventure Ball and the Hamster House Starter Set. And what would make these fun loving hamsters happier than to have their own Hamster Wheel, Carrier and Blanket, Garage and Hamster Car.

The Big Question

Where can I find them? Cepia LLC, which manufactures and distributes the Zsu Zsu line of toy hamsters, has announced that the Zsu Zsu pets are available at Toys “R” Us, Walmart, Meijer, Shopko, Duckwall, Blains and online at toysrus.com. Zsu Zsu pets are also available at Amazon.com.

But the bigger question is, “Are the Zsu Zsu pets available till now?” Of course this depends on when now is. While it is prudent not to go for overpriced finds, try explaining to your kid that you can’t find anywhere his much anticipated Christmas present. If you can’t find it in official outlets, you can always try Ebay. Here’s a tip: while these toys maybe popularly spelled Zsu Zsu pets, you can also search under Zhuzhu, Zu Zu, Zoo Zoo or even Go Go. Happy hunting!

What is Wrong with this World

Everyday we see sensational events happening all around us. We see random acts of violence and insanity; continuing war and violence; world economy in turmoil; natural disasters distroying countless lives, poverty and diseases killing people by the millions. Is the state of humanity turning from bad to worst?

Extremism

This terminology is constantly attributed to Al Qaeda and the Taliban but it exists as divisive elements in each and every society in the world. Extremists may be few in numbers but their controversial ideas and propositions often fill media outlets and fuel anger and cynicism.

American society is in such polarized and battered state that extremists, in trying to justify the meaning of all of this, is feeding people’s fears and anxieties to advance their personal agenda. The reason why people are easily manipulated brings us to the next phenomena.

Herd Mentality

As Kay in Men in Black aptly said, “A person is smart. People are dumb, panicky dangerous animals and you know it.” This is the reason why people are gullible to fall into just about anything, to be able to sleep well at night.

Which herd do you belong? If you are not a Republican, then you must be a Democrat? And if you’re a Democrat, are you with the “Blue Dogs” or with the ultra-liberals? If you are an ultra-liberal then you must be appalled with Stupak’s betrayal? Why can’t most people get out of such tagging and labeling? – As if we’re cows.

Apathy and Cynicism

But are we able to think through each and every happening that comes our way? – Only if we’re not apathetic and cynical all the while. We may be experts and adept in our field of expertise (we even consider ourselves indispensable) but when we are disconnected with the world around us, what does that make us?

We choose to live in our comfort zones – a safe corner where we are the master of our universe. But as always, it exists only a while; until a cataclysmic event like the Global economic crisis encroaches what we thought, all of the while, as the perfect little world.

Sins of the Father

After an emotional tsunami hits us, we scamper to get on with our lives. The process almost always passes through our powerful denial system which justifies and rationalizes our frame of mind. After a while, many would eventually go back to battered paths but once in a while, a few, venture on to become pathfinders and in the process discover the “sins of the father.”

Psychologists would attribute our psychological makeup as the summation of all our experiences. It determines our frame of mind and belief system but at the same time we swallow everything, “hook, line and sinker, and incorporates everything to our subconscious. But the really question is, “Is this healthy?”

The Truth is a Paradox

The world is how we see it. We may see the Health Care bill as Socialism while others see it as a stand against the excesses of Capitalism. We may see the war against terror as protecting American interests while others see it as America’s arrogance and intolerance. But incredibly, what is highlighted are the extremes and what is missing is the middle ground.

There aren’t enough people working to make things work sustainably for common welfare and interests. People justify their actions as the “right” thing to do. But what is “right” anyway? Isn’t it just coming from own version of truth? What is wrong in this world is when people, especially those in power, think they have the monopoly of truth.

 

Steps to Running your Vehicle on Vegetable Oil

There is a growing movement towards the use of renewable sources of energy. One viable option is using vegetable oil to run diesel-powered vehicles. Enthusiasts and purists prefer the use of waste vegetable oil (WVO) because it is the cheapest option and at the same time, it is a form of recycling. However, there are technical issues which must be considered before jumping into the bandwagon.

Compatibility

The diesel engine was originally designed to run on vegetable oil. But as the petroleum industry grew, diesel fuel became the standard by which future designs of the diesel engine was founded into. Since diesel fuel and vegetable oil have inherent differences in properties; all available solutions center on improving viscosity and combustibility of vegetable oil.

Solutions

Cetane Enhancers

The easiest way to address the compatibility of vegetable oil with the diesel engine is through the use of additives or “cetane enhancers”. These commercial “secret formulas” basically address the main issue of making vegetable oil more efficient to run on diesel-powered engine.

Diesel Conversion Kits

Diesel conversion kits allow the use of both diesel fuel and vegetable oil through separate feeding tanks. The main principle is to use heated-up vegetable oil to fuel most of the running time and diesel fuel for certain critical periods.

Diesel conversion kits incorporate heat exchangers to raise the temperature of vegetable oil to 160-180 degrees Fahrenheit. The heating process makes the oil less viscous and more combustible. It for this reason that manufacturers, as a matter of operating protocol, recommend the use diesel fuel to start the engine, vegetable oil during cruising and shifting back to diesel fuel prior to engine stop.

Biodiesel

Biodiesel is vegetable oil which has undergone through a process called transesterification. The process involves reacting vegetable oil with catalysts like methanol or ethanol and other reagents to remove free fatty acids. There are commercial modules available which also incorporates dewatering and filtration systems.

Getting started

Finding a consistent source of WVO

WVO is usually free and can be source through restaurants and food chains. These outlets would be more than glad to have somebody pick-up their WVO on a regular basis. However, providing the vegetable oil source with collection bins is necessary to have an efficient collection system.

Deciding on the process and appropriate equipment

The minimum equipment needed for anybody planning to shift to vegetable oil, is a dewatering/filtration system. Dewatering involves heating the vegetable oil to remove water while filtration is needed to remove macro impurities. But for biodiesel production, additional equipments are needed for the transesterification process.

Finding a compatible vehicle

Vegetable oil can have adverse reactions on the different components of the fuel system. In many cases, it destroys major components of the engine. It is for this reason that proper consultation is needed before making a decision on which diesel-powered vehicle to buy.

As a matter of general principle, there are three vital components for any diesel-powered vehicle to efficiently run on vegetable oil: Indirect Injection System, Bosch Injection System and Heated Filtration System. However, newer models which have common rail and other types of electronic injection systems can run on quality processed biodiesel.
