DIY School supplies and room organization for back to school! In this DIY video I show 15 DIY school supplies, room organization and room decor DIY projects for teenagers and kids that'll get you ready for back to school. DIY projects: owl backpack, emoji bag, galaxy bag, pencil case, binder, notebooks, weekly erase planner are just a few of the awesome DIY school supplies crafts that you will find in this back to school tutorial. http://sarabeautycorner.com/ DIY galaxy school bag is a perfect DIY project for those who want to create a cool school bag for notebooks, pencils & other school essentials. You need a black bag or backpack and some white & blue fabric paint. You can buy cheap plain backpack or recycle an old one. I love galaxy DIY projects - so much fun to make, easy and always looking amazing. To keep your school pencils organized a nice pencil pouch is a must. In this DIY school supplies tutorial I show DIY pencil case or a makeup bag step by step that'll take 10 minutes to make and won't cost more than 2 dollars. Next DIY school supplies are two different DIY paper clips and DIY bookmarks options. For the pretty plastic flowers you need some plastic beads, which you need to bake for a few minutes. Stick the beaded flowers on your paper clips and you get awesome flower bookmarks. You can make super cute bookmarks using ribbon and paper clips too! In this DIY school supplies we also recycle plain backpack into an adorable DIY owl backpack! We need some felt or normal fabric material to make the cutest owl backpack for back to school. Instead of owl you can make other animals like a cat, bee, bunny. Just have fun with different colors of fabric! DIY alphabet phone case project? All you need is a plain phone case and permanent markers. Keeping it in line with a back to school theme I decorated mine with a bunch of letters. One of my favorite DIY projects in this DIY school supplies video is a DIY weekly planner. This DIY planner or erase board makes it easy to keep track of all your school tasks and free time activities. It also looks stunning on your desk or on the wall of your bedroom. A beautiful DIY room decor piece that will keep your life organized. An awesome desk organization piece is a DIY beaded bowl. This DIY is fun to make and looks amazing. Pour a bunch of beads into an oven proof bowl and bake for a few minutes. You are left with a cool bowl to store small bits and pieces that would otherwise lay around your room. Pencil holders are a great room decor and DIY desk organization project for storing pens and pencils. We will decorate them with a DIY puffy paint. Puffy paint is so much fun to make and to play with. You can use it to decorate windows, glasses or even make jewellery. I decorated two jars by writing on a bunch of letters and numbers. They help me keep my desk tidy and organized! An epic back to school DIY room decor is where you make your pencils look like a bouquet of flowers! All you do is stick some artificial flowers on your pencils and put them in a jar or a glass. Such an easy and useful DIY room decor idea for your desk. This DIY school supplies guide wouldn't be complete without a DIY emoji school bag! I show how to use a transfer paper to decorate your plain school bag or a backpack with a bunch of emojis! Transfer paper DIYs are so easy to make. You can print out any picture of your choice, quotes, cartoon characters and transfer them to your school bag. I printed out 9 emojis with different face expressions and ironed them on the bag. Perfection! In this DIY school supplies tutorial I also show two DIY notebooks and a DIY binder! For the first DIY notebook dip your thumb into acrylic paint and then press it on the paper. Add a few details using a black pen and you're left with an awesome DIY pineapple notebook! Another notebook design is inspired by Instagram! I created an Instagram feed on my pc, printed it out and stick the sheet on my plain notebook to get a DIY Instagram notebook! We also have to decorate and organize a binder. Binders are super practical because you can use them for many different subjects. So you don't have to carry a bunch of notebooks in your school bag. I show how to keep your binder organised.

All about Hemp
 
01:48
Henry Ford Made a Hemp Car I found an interesting tidbit in the history of natural fiber with industrial applications. There is a long history of use of natural fiber to reinforce automobile parts. Here is some archival footage of Henry Ford’s Hemp Car. Click on the link above and it will take you to an interesting youtube video. Apparently Henry Ford made a car where the exterior was some sort of fiber-reinforced composite using industrial hemp. The video shows Henry Ford hitting the trunk of the car with an axe, and it doesn’t leave a dent. An article appeared in Popular Mechanics Magazine, Vol. 76, No. 6, December,1941, titled: “Auto Body Made of Plastics Resists Denting Under Hard Blows”. The article goes on to describe the car exterior, including windshield and windows, as being made from a mixture “composed of farm crops and synthetic chemicals, the plastic is reported to withstand a blow 10 as great as steel without denting…” The article also quotes Ford as saying he would “grow automobiles from the soil.” naturalfibersforautomotive.com/?p=126 Hemp May Be the Future of Flying Canadian Derek Kesek has set about making the first airplane made almost entirely of hemp. That’s right, Cannabis. (Don’t bother with the “flying high” jokes, he’s heard them all.) If all goes according to schedule, the four-seater plane—which will be made of no less than 75 percent hemp, and will run on hemp-based bio-fuel—will make its maiden flight sometime this fall or next spring from Kitty Hawk, N.C., site of the Wright Brothers’ historic take off. It’s the first part of Derek Kesek’s broader vision to help get industrial-hemp use off the ground and why he chose to make a plane rather than, say, a hemp motorcycle: It’ll get noticed. “There are many advantages to using hemp,” says Kesek, a former organic-restaurant owner in Ontario who founded Hempearth, a company focused on developing hemp products for mass use. “This plane project is just our first experiment with industrial hemp, and we plan to explore many uses. Once we establish structural testing and information from the hemp project, we will take that and work on the next best implication. The sky may not be the limit.” outsideonline.com/1959906/hemp-may-be-future-flying Bosky snow Goggles The third generation 2014 model of bio-plastic snow goggles from BOSKY. Claimed to be the lightest frame on the market, and you can certainly notice that difference. • The goggles are fitted with a plant oil based plastic frame lighter than any petroleum frame on the market • Double pane spherical lenses to prevent optical distortion and fogging. • The lenses are 180 degree view “blue/ violet” with 50% mirrored coating to reduce glare that are for bright to overcast conditions. • The lenses come with anti fog treatment. geartrade.com/item/359934/bosky-3rd-generation-bio-plastichemp-goggles Hempcrete Hempcrete is a bio-composite made of the inner woody core of the hemp plant mixed with a lime-based binder. The hemp core or “Shiv” has a high silica content which allows it to bind well with lime. This property is unique to hemp among all natural fibers. The result is a lightweight cementitious insulating material weighing about a seventh or an eighth of the weight of concrete. Fully cured hempcrete blocks float in a bucket of water. It is not used as a structural element, only as insulating infill between the frame members though it does tend to reduce racking. All loads are carried by internal framing. Wood stud framing is most common making it suitable for low-rise construction. Hempcrete buildings ten stories high have been built in Europe. americanlimetechnology.com/what-is-hempcrete/ Hemp Eyewear Yep, you read that right. 99% of plastics use fossil fuels, which contribute to mass pollution and climate change.

Calling All Cars: The Blood-Stained Shoe / The Ruined Suspenders / The King's Ransom
 
01:27:54
The radio show Calling All Cars hired LAPD radio dispacher Jesse Rosenquist to be the voice of the dispatcher. Rosenquist was already famous because home radios could tune into early police radio frequencies. As the first police radio dispatcher presented to the public ear, his was the voice that actors went to when called upon for a radio dispatcher role. The iconic television series Dragnet, with LAPD Detective Joe Friday as the primary character, was the first major media representation of the department. Real LAPD operations inspired Jack Webb to create the series and close cooperation with department officers let him make it as realistic as possible, including authentic police equipment and sound recording on-site at the police station. Due to Dragnet's popularity, LAPD Chief Parker "became, after J. Edgar Hoover, the most well known and respected law enforcement official in the nation". In the 1960s, when the LAPD under Chief Thomas Reddin expanded its community relations division and began efforts to reach out to the African-American community, Dragnet followed suit with more emphasis on internal affairs and community policing than solving crimes, the show's previous mainstay. Several prominent representations of the LAPD and its officers in television and film include Adam-12, Blue Streak, Blue Thunder, Boomtown, The Closer, Colors, Crash, Columbo, Dark Blue, Die Hard, End of Watch, Heat, Hollywood Homicide, Hunter, Internal Affairs, Jackie Brown, L.A. Confidential, Lakeview Terrace, Law & Order: Los Angeles, Life, Numb3rs, The Shield, Southland, Speed, Street Kings, SWAT, Training Day and the Lethal Weapon, Rush Hour and Terminator film series. The LAPD is also featured in the video games Midnight Club II, Midnight Club: Los Angeles, L.A. Noire and Call of Juarez: The Cartel. The LAPD has also been the subject of numerous novels. Elizabeth Linington used the department as her backdrop in three different series written under three different names, perhaps the most popular being those novel featuring Det. Lt. Luis Mendoza, who was introduced in the Edgar-nominated Case Pending. Joseph Wambaugh, the son of a Pittsburgh policeman, spent fourteen years in the department, using his background to write novels with authentic fictional depictions of life in the LAPD. Wambaugh also created the Emmy-winning TV anthology series Police Story. Wambaugh was also a major influence on James Ellroy, who wrote several novels about the Department set during the 1940s and 1950s, the most famous of which are probably The Black Dahlia, fictionalizing the LAPD's most famous "cold case", and L.A. Confidential, which was made into a film of the same name. Both the novel and the film chronicled mass-murder and corruption inside and outside the force during the Parker era. Critic Roger Ebert indicates that the film's characters (from the 1950s) "represent the choices ahead for the LAPD": assisting Hollywood limelight, aggressive policing with relaxed ethics, and a "straight arrow" approach. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/LAPD
