Something I got from Amazon a few days ago to recondition and save my lead acid batteries.  I have some huge gel cell batteries in the basement but I doubt it will work on those though.  It can apparently desulfate stuffed lead acid batteries by passing a high frequency signal through the battery to break down the sulfate crystals on the plates.  Seems lots of people say these things are a scam.  It would be nice to find a definitive answer.

Charging a lead acid battery involves desulfating the battery.  Stuffed batteries have large sulfate crystals formed on the plates insulating the lead which don't desulfate with a standard charger.  To break those down requires a high voltage but this then leads to gases being released and boiled off.  These desulfators work by creating the high voltages at a very high frequency so that the gases don't build up.  They also work at the resonant frequency of the battery to help this process.

And the use of paracetamol in pregnancy is again linked to ADHD http://m.nzherald.co.nz/nz/news/article.cfm?c_id=1&objectid=11331644
 
Long-term Tylenol use may double the risk of certain blood cancers (http://1.usa.gov/RPfxS0). Even some of our safest drugs may have side effects, which is why plants might be a better option:
The pharmaceutical industry is starting to shift away from designing single target drugs to trying to affect multiple pathways simultaneously, much like compounds made by plants such as aspirin and curcumin, the pigment in the spice turmeric.

Very useful when the fan itself doesn't have a built in timer.

The person named Reboler? I don't know! I haven't followed the REBOL community closely for a while.

This is a 5g packet of indicating silica gel. Indicating means when it is full of water, it changes color. 1g is good for 1 litre so 5 g should keep 5L dry. Just to be sure I've included 2 packets in my secondary glazing to see if I can prevent condensation. Each packet cost me 40c before shipping and GST from Auckland.

Indicating means it changes color (green) when it reaches its ability to absorb water

Although (fad) low carb, high protein and high fat diets appear to little change traditional risk factors ( cholesterol, LDL etc), mice studies appear to show that such diets can accelerate atherosclerosis through non-traditional risk factors viz. lowered levels of circulating endothelial progenitor cells and higher levels of non-esterified fatty acids.
