Science Says That Dredging Is Fish-Friendly

If you’ve ever wondered how dredging affects fish and other aquatic wildlife, you can now put your mind at ease. Scientists at the Environment Protection Agency (EPA) have found that suction dredge mining does no harm to fish. Not only that, but it may help to improve their habitat.

The two scientists reporting, Claudia Wise and Joseph Green, have done in-depth research in this area and have come to the conclusion that no evidence exists that dredging harms fish. Wildlife activists have made claims over the years that dredging deteriorates aquatic habitats. They’ve found that it actually helps the habitat of wild salmon and other fish by improving streams and rivers.

In a recent interview, Wise stated, “Any negative effects of suction dredging on fish or fish habitat are insignificant. The benefits definitely outweigh any of the negative effects in any of the studies I’ve ever seen.”

Nearly every study conducted on the impact of suction dredging on fish and their habitats have shown that dredging’s negative impact is less than significant.

Dredging helps to improve fish environments by creating pockets in streams and riverbeds. These pockets provide a place for fish to spawn where naturally available gravel is limited. Without dredging, the bottoms of streams and rivers remain compacted, and the fish have limited places to spawn.

Suction dredging creates small pockets, also called manmade refugia, where fish can then spawn. One study found that after year of dredging a river full of salmon, the river was full of more fish since it became an attractive place for the fish to spawn.

Just one nest of salmon eggs can produce thousands of salmon. Just a small improvement in the attractiveness of riverbeds as spawning areas can dramatically improve a river’s fish population. Wise and Green both agree that much of the media coverage about dredging being bad for fish has been one-sided.

With this in mind, you can rent dredging equipment Montgomery County TX with peace of mind that you wont harm nearby fish habitats. These facts are backed by scientific evidence, and they show that controlled dredging done outside of spawning season can improve the fish population of a river within a few years.

A Home Based Business Success Story: Meet Jill Barber

jill barberMeet Jill Barber. Jill owns River City Referrals, a Homeowner Referral Network (HRN®) business based in Virginia. Jill works from home screening and referring local home improvement contractors in her area.

1. What did you do before you launched your Homeowner Referral Network (HRN)?

I worked at FedEx Express.

2. Why did you want to launch a business from home?

I didn’t know that’s what I wanted to do, but I was pregnant and got a very attractive severance package from FedEx, so I left.

3. What attracted you to the HRN business?

I have a degree in Interior Design and wanted desperately to get back into housing in some way, shape or form. I looked at real estate, then realized I’d be working nights and weekends so that wasn’t much better than my job at FedEx where I traveled a lot.

4. How did you know that an HRN would work in your area?

I didn’t. After reading the material Debra Cohen provided, talking with her, and knowing that the Richmond area didn’t have a service like this, I thought it was a risk worth taking.

5. How did you know that an HRN would be right for you personally? (Did you have an “AHA!” moment?)

I was already doing a VERY scaled down version of a referral service for contractors in my neighborhood and enjoyed it.

6. What was your first job?

A Drywall repair that paid a $26 commission….and I was thrilled to get it!

7. What types of services do you refer through your network?

Anything to do with inside or outside the home. Some of the fringe services I’ve referred include masonite siding claims, energy experts, home watching company for vacation, meeting plumbers, etc.

8. What is the biggest job you’ve referred?

$300,000.00

9. When did you turn a profit?

After the 1st year.

10. What has been the most difficult part of operating your HRN?

Dealing with the attrition in contractors and running the business with a child at home. What I thought would be part time until he was in school turned full time very quickly due to the success of the venture.

11. And the most enjoyable?

The empowerment you get from knowing you can do it. I would never had had the guts to “develop” the industry, untried like Debra did, but I will take a calculated risk.

12. What type of response have you received from homeowners?

“Your service was DYNAMITE, Jill! Your follow-up is unbelievable, your level of attention is one that I aspire to in a customer service business, and I’ll definitely use you again. ”

13. And what has the response been from contractors?

I’ve had a very positive response from contractors in my area.

14. How has your business changed since you first started until now?

Much more to running a business than I thought. I’ve had to delegate the administrative and operational parts of the business, so that I can continue bringing the business in.

15. What goals do you have for your business in the future?

Double, then triple my income- totally attainable! The sky is the limit.

Lost Your Source Code? Decode Your Encoded Files.

Just the other day, I came across a forum where people posted how they hired someone to create a website for them, only to realize later on that the PHP files for their website were encoded by the programmer who can no longer be found. They now needed someone who could decode their files so that they could see the raw code in order to make what they deemed to be necessary changes to the code. They are not the only ones who face that dilemma. There are other people who have files that have unwelcome links to other sites that they do not want to be linked to from their website. In some cases, they bought website scripts without the knowledge of those links being present and it was only after their sites went live that they realized they were there. One thing I can say to all those people who are in despair over those situations is that there is hope – they CAN get their files decoded by KGB Decoders. This means that they do not have to remain stuck with useless encoded files since they can be decoded.

The encoded files that you can get decoded include IonCube, Zend, PHP LockIt, CodeLock, ByteRun, and many others. If you are unsure what your scripts are encoded with, you can check the “Encoded Views” page on the site to make a comparison. The service is quick (unless the decoding process takes a lot longer than expected) and you will have your file or files back in no time. So, instead of sitting and sulking that your files are encoded and all hope is lost, visit KGB Decoders right now to get them decoded.

CellPhone Unlocking: Any Phone, Any Network

Millions of people all over the world own at least one cellular phone. The number of cellphones that adds up to is astronomical! From time to time, people move from one country to another, either to visit or migrate to. They usually carry their cellphones with them which, in most cases, are locked to specific cellphone networks from their home countries. This poses a two-fold problem: (1) roaming charges, for those who are only visiting a foreign country (and do not desire to rent or buy a cellphone in that country), can be quite expensive, and (2) they cannot use a SIM card from a local provider because their phone is locked to their home network. This can be quite distressing and stressful. Well, you and those other millions of people need not be distressed anymore as you can now legally unlock your cellphone so that you can use it in any country on any network. This makes it possible for you to unlock your cellphone and then travel overseas and use your cellphone on the network of the country that you visit. In fact, you can even get it unlocked online in the country that you are visiting.

All of the main cellphone brands can be unlocked. These include Nokia, Blackberry, Samsung, LG, HTC, Huawei, Apple, Motorola, and many more. All of the major cellphone networks like AT&T, Verizon, T-Mobile, etc. are supported. All you need to do is provide your phone manufacturer, IMEI number, and cell-service provider in order to get your cellphone unlock code. Why continue to be a slave to your service provider when you can easily get your cellphone unlocked in a matter of minutes? Break free from slavery to your current provider and get your cellphone unlocked. Then go ahead and travel to any country and use your own cellphone without any SIM restrictions in the country that you are visiting.
