feedback - what is the best car alarm
The Romanian people may taste one of the most digestible fruits in the West --
Style and democracy: mail from your own.
France quickly deviated from its standards in trying to establish relations with the newly liberated Romania.
According to a complete
Earlier this month, in a page advertisement for the French newspaper Liberation, "thousands of addresses" have appeared from the Romanian directory and are stored on Minitel, which is owned by France
The French were asked to randomly select a name and send a postcard to the person they chose (
Photos of the Eiffel Tower or Santa Claus).
They are sure that Romanians will not have any difficulties in understanding French.
For a cynical person like feedback, the use of technology in this case can be said to be at least mixed.
Nevertheless, as far as the Romanians are concerned, this initiative should make gratifying changes from the concerns of the terrible secret police in their country.
Technology is still a mystery for some people.
Feedback knew of a sports writer who, since moving into aflat, did not cook in an electric oven with a digital display.
Similarly, many people (
Or call home and ask the baby-
Although it is possible to program in advance to automate the work, the nanny will still turn on the video recorder.
We even saw a video recorder with a black tape on the digital clock display to prevent it from flashing 8 s lines, as the owner hasn't had time to set the time of the day.
Recently, we met a famous, really charming actor on a radio station.
As part of the live broadcast, he is waiting for an interview.
He had a portable radio in his hand.
We asked him why.
"I brought it so I could hear the interview," he explained when he was brought into the studio . ".
We are still trying to figure out the logic behind it.
* The prospect of a green dash on the road is beyond our grasp, which makes us very concerned.
The price of a car catalytic converter is listed in a helpful little publication of Friends of the Earth, Catalyst Connection.
Some automakers seem to be standard with catalytic converters.
Volvo is available for free.
Almost all other automakers, such as BMW, Jaguar and Saab, offer a price of £ 350.
The manufacturer that stands out is Rolls Royce-Royce.
The catalyst converter on the roll is standard
But not on Bentley.
And the cost of a Bentley catalytic converter?
People's feedback is a raise.
* Did you know that economists see environmental pollution as a "market failure problem "?
You or I might define it in some other way, but the economist is clearly sensitive people who won't be outspoken if the shovel is longer.
This information comes from an updated report prepared by consulting firm Ecotec for the British government on controlling industrial pollution costs.
As explained in the report: "For an economist, environmental pollution is seen as a market failure problem, rooted in the lack of clearly defined private property rights in the Environmental Media.
In other words, since environmental media are not exclusively owned by industrial operators, their "pollution convenience" is a factor of production that is free for them without economic incentives.
Now we know.
Feedback always thinks it has something to do with creating confusion.
* Definition is always tricky, of course.
To get feedback, Bruce Charlton is trying to define scientists elsewhere in this issue with the shoes they wear, which seems impeccable, but someone will definitely point out that he is somewhere
For some reason, Charlton's article reminded the feedback about the undergraduate student-who was a law student-that had to find some accommodation during the second year of college.
He approached his university residence and said that as long as he could share a house with a scientist, he didn't mind where he ended up living.
Does he want to broaden his horizons through extra-curricular contact?
Is it because scientists are so attached?
"Oh, no, that's not the case," he replied.
"This is the only way I can make sure I don't have to queue up to go to the toilet in the morning.
It was a mole at first, now a squirrel.
About a year ago, in this column, there was a rather long debate about the best way to get to mol Mohl's garden without destroying creatures (
Feedback, December 24, 1988/31). Now, R. A.
Crick of Chelmsford, Essex, wants to know how to convince the squirrel family to move out of his attic.
Creak has tried to use a sonic anti-theft alarm but has not succeeded.
The alarm is triggered by a mobile probe that makes a screeching scream when the alarm rings.
Unfortunately, he said, my wife and I found this to be more irritating than a squirrel because the squirrel didn't notice it at all.
Creak is now trying to flash the lights and strobes, but is not sure if it is possible to convince his guests to leave by having his guests listen to the recording of the squirrel's call for help.
Airport authorities often use recordings of bird distress calls to keep birds away from the runway, and Creak thinks it might be worth trying similar techniques in his attic.
If anyone knows where he can find a recording of the squirrel's call for help, or if they made a call for help, we would be happy to pass on the message.
If this is not possible, we are pleased to hear about any other technology that might help solve his problem.
