It’s National Home Ownership Month, MSU Tornado Researcher, Prof. Mark Skidmore, Touts Manufactured Homes As “Great” Option

  • “That box [a manufactured home] is going to be built better than any [conventional] home, unless it’s built to hurricane standards,” said Dr. Tim Reinhold, Chief Engineer, Insurance Institute of Building & Home Safety (IBHS)
  • June was proclaimed by President Donald J. Trump as National Home Ownership Month.  In a surprising set of admissions, Professor Mark Skidmore, Michigan State University (MSU) co-author of Climate Change, Tornadoes and Mobile Homes: a Dangerous Mix, has told MHProNews that he believes manufactured homes are a “great” option for home ownership. 

    In an on-the-record digital exchange between:

    Skidmore made a series of admissions that cut away at the sensational claims of their tornado-related research.

    Among the revelations from “Climate Change, Tornadoes, and ‘Mobile Homes’ – Dangerous Oversights – Mark Skidmore Admits Michigan State Univ Study’s Omissions; Revealing Analysis & Report,” Kovach, Weiss, and Ghorbani’s digital discussion with Skidmore and others at MSU produced the following facts, admissions and revelations.

    1. There have been no mobile homes built in the U.S. in over 41 years.
    2. Manufactured homes evolved from mobile homes, but they are not the same thing in terms of construction, safety, energy efficiency, and durability.
    3. Skidmore and his fellow MSU researchers did not break down the data between pre-HUD Code mobile homes and manufactured homes – the latter of which are built to superior standards.
    4. Skidmore said, “I think the benefits of manufactured homes are great,
    5. Skidmore touted the affordable quality of manufactured homes, “I see them as filling an important niche in the housing market.”

    Kovach cited in their discussion a previous statement made by Insurance Institute of Building & Home Safety (IBHS) Chief Engineer, Tim Reinhold, Ph.D. about the strength and relative safety of a manufactured home compared to conventional, ‘on site,’ built housing.

    While noting that the safest place in a tornado is an underground shelter, the IBHS has done wind studies that demonstrated that conventional construction is not as durable in a windstorm as a properly installed modern manufactured home is.

    In an interview with MHLivingNews, Reinhold said, “That box [a manufactured home] is going to be built better than any [conventional] home, unless it’s built to hurricane standards,” said Dr. Reinhold.

    When several facts and apparent oversights were brought to Skidmore’s attention, he candidly said those items were not considered or a part of the scope of their research. 

    No Mobile Homes Built in Over 41 Years, Manufactured Homes are Different

    Speaking about the 41st anniversary of the ‘birthday’ of manufactured housing on June 15, 1976, which ended the mobile home construction era in the U.S., Weiss said “The establishment of the HUD Code was — and is — an important milestone for both the industry and consumers.  The industry itself sought out federal regulation under a preemptive, performance-based, uniform code of federal standards that balances the key factors of safety and cost, along with uniform enforcement within a federal-state partnership.”

    To learn all about the surprisingly low odds of dying in a mobile home in a tornado, as well as safety tips, a video with dramatic wind-test footage, plus other revelations made by Skidmore, Weiss, Kovach and others see: “Climate Change, Tornadoes, and ‘Mobile Homes’ – Dangerous Oversights – Mark Skidmore Admits Michigan State Univ Study’s Omissions; Revealing Analysis & Report.”

    The latest kitchen innovation – Wable Raclette hood

  • Past week the Dutch entrepreneur/inventor Robin Willemse launched his product which is very useful for a lot of households in Europe. He started a kickstarter campaign for “Wable”. This raclette grill exhaust hood, which you can put over your raclette grill, ensures all the poisonous particulate matters, odours and whirling around grease is being sucked into the hood and filtered.
  • Summary:“Well if it can kill birds, it must not be too healthy for people and particular children and people who are asthmatic”

    Past week the Dutch entrepreneur/inventor Robin Willemse launched his product which
    is very useful for a lot of households in Europe. He started a kickstarter campaign for ‘’Wable’’. This raclette grill exhaust hood, which you can put over your raclette grill, ensures all the poisonous particulate matters, odours and whirling around grease is being sucked into the hood and filtered.

    Robin  Willemse, former entrepreneur of BBQ Burger in Almere, the Netherlands, has had  negative experiences with exhaust systems. In his restaurant the hamburgers were
    grilled on real barbecues. The enormous amount of smoke that came along with this process was hard to filter and sometimes made his restaurant looking like it was on fire. This did not get of his head. During the holidays, when using the raclette grill with the whole family, it was the topic of conversation: ‘’Nice using the raclette grill, but the nasty odours make your house smell for days’’.

    ‘’Actually it is very strange that nowadays in the Netherlands more than half of the people use their raclette grill during the holidays but there is still no real exhaust hood for the odours’’. That is wat Robin Willemse thought off when he began designing the raclette grill exhaust hood. Several months he worked with his father, father in law and brothers to get the design right and that worked out. Since the 6th of March you can order the product.

    Robin Willemse is trying to get the funding via a Kickstarter campaign. You can order a ‘’Wable’’ via www.kickstarter.com or via www.wable.eu. When Robin has reached 1000 orders, the producing can start. He is convinced that it will be a great success: ‘’Who doesn’t love to use the raclette grill with his loved ones, without the nasty odours spreading through the entire house’’. You are thinking, the table even fuller than it is, but nothing is further from the truth. Because his flat design the Wable creates extra space on the table.

    The Wable has even more advantages than what Robin Willemse thought off when designing it with his family. ‘’We tested all thinkable tests on the Wable’’. This is when
    they found out that it sucks and filters all particulate matters, so the air is always clean. This used to be a big problem for people with birds. ‘’Well if it can kill birds, it must not be too healthy for people and particular children and people who are asthmatic’’ is what Robin thought when he began experimenting with his filter. The Wable comes with disposable filters.

    No Need to Endure More Tantrums of Your Wife as Cryo Therapy Will Bring You Back to Action.

  • The two most painful things in my life are arthritis and joint pains.
  • Summary:Recently had a surgery and your surgeon advised a cold therapy treatment. Check out which product is best suited for you.

    Pain is the only thing that never leaves us and makes our life agonising. There are several types of pain we face but joint pains are probably the most agonising conditions that we face in our life time. Now, parting ways with a friend is easy but to bid adieu to the joint pain is something next to impossible. Thus, you need all the care and treatment procedure you can get to get relieve from the pain in the joints.

    The cold therapy has always been revered as one of the most effective treatment procedures in joint pain. Well, even our body joints need to chill sometimes. But the question is how can you get the most effective cold therapy for your joints? Now, burying yourself under the ice is not the therapy that you require for your aching joints; so you need something smarter which will provide you with all the relief that you need.

    Thus, you need to avail the cryo cuffs for soothing your aching joints. Why use cryo cuffs? Cryo cuffs are effective treatment in the treatment of joint pain because it keeps the area around your aching joint compressed while circulating the ice cold water uniformly throughout the area around the joint thereby providing uniform cooling effect across the inflamed joint and ensuring maximum relieve.

    Although it may feel to get rid of the joint in order to get relief but start using cryo cuffs instead, and get faster recovery without having to lose an important body part. Now there are several brands of cryo cuffs available and it is too hard to choose the perfect one.  Choosing your favourite car is much easier than choosing a cryo cuff. Thus, we have selected some brands for you which are revered across the globe for their efficient use:

    1. Aircast:

    Aircast cryo cuffs are more popular than any celebrity to the people witnessing joint pain. The cryo-therapy products sold by these brands are widely used by people throughout the world due to the relief it provides to patients. The Aircast cryo cuffs are available for treating the knee joints, shoulder joints, ankles and waist. These products can be distinguished into two different types: Cryo cuff with cooler (Non-motorised) known as gravity cooler and cryo cuff with IC cooler (motorised). No matter what type of cuff you are using, all of them are compatible and can be used with any type of aircast cooler.

    Aircast has perfected the way it creates compression on different body parts by using an IC cooler. It has only one tube from where the cold water can flow in and out of the cuff, then the question arises how it can keep the intermittent compression going?

    The answer lies in the double walled cuffs from aircast. As you switch on the motor which is hidden in the lid of the cooler, the water flows through the cuff to provide the cold effect. To create compression on the body part air is pumped into the outer walls of the cuff which creates an intermittent compression helping in patient’s recovery process by using dual method of cold compression.   

    Aircast cryo cuff systems are for the masses and priced competitively. Please refer to the chart below.  

    2. Donjoy:

    Like Aircast brand Donjoy has 2 types of coolers classic and IceMan. Donjoy is one of the best manufacturers of efficient cryo cuffs that help to reduce the pain in the joints. The name of this brand has Joy in it thus you totally trust on the well crafted cuffs of this renowned company. The cryo cuffs are designed from an engageable hook material which can be easily wrapped around the inflamed area to keep it under pressure while providing the cold therapy. The cryo cuffs from Donjoy are available in all sizes for knee, shoulder and ankle; moreover, they are highly convenient to use due to the lightweight of the material and its flexibility.

    Unlike Aircast Donjoy coolers have 2 tubes which pump water in and out of the cuff. It is easy to attach Donjoy cooler with the pad by using easy to plug and play technology.A semi-closed loop recirculation system is used by Donjoy which is patented and makes it different from its competition. IceMan cooler boasts of delivering the most accurate, steady and uniform temperature over a period of time. To back it up it also has a temperature gauge.

    The major difference between IceMan and classic cooler is: iceman has clear walls with a temperature gauge whereas capacity to carry more water lies with the classic cooler. The other major difference is the pricing with IceMan holding a clear edge on price.

    3. Breg System:

    The cryo cuffs are the most versatile as well as convenient offerings in Breg’s cold therapy line of products. These cryo cuffs are very easy to use due to their compact design and that is the reason why these cryo cuffs are widely used by the patients witnessing joint aches at home, clinics or hospitals. What makes it more likeable for the customers is that it can be used for availing cold therapy for a long period of time like 6-8 hours with just an initial fill of icy water. The products are highly popular among the patients and are widely used by the people across the world. The superior design of these cuffs make helps them to cover the entire area thus provides maximum cooling effect. Other than few minor problems, the Breg cryo cuffs are absolutely reliable for efficient use.
