How A Gas Fridge Works
- electric refrigerator: a refrigerator in which the coolant is pumped around by an electric motor
- A refrigerator is a cooling apparatus. The common household appliance (often called a "fridge" for short) comprises a thermally insulated compartment and a heat pump—chemical or mechanical means—to transfer heat from it to the external environment (i.e.

Jokari Fizz-Keeper Pump Cap for 2-Liter Bottles
Nothing is worse than sitting down with your ice cold cola, only to discover that is flat. Using Jokari's fizz keeper pump, you can re-pressurize your two liter bottles so that they retain their carbonation. Simply press down on the easy to use hand pump, and make sure the seal is tight. With pumping, the soda's elongated life can now last for weeks.
Unless you're prone to malaria, it's a decent bet you won't finish a bottle of quinine-laced tonic water at one sitting--likewise, that bottle of sugar- and caffeine-free Coca-Cola that was brought to a Pepsi Lovers' picnic. And if there's anything sadder than a fizzless, half-filled bottle of cream soda taking up refrigerator space, please keep it to yourself. How to preserve the fizz in that 1-, 1.5-, or 2-liter bottle that wasn't finished? Jokari has created a solution with the Fizz-Keeper pump cap, a simple device just over 3 inches tall that screws onto the bottle's neck, replacing the existing cap. By repeatedly raising and lowering the simple piston until the sides of the plastic bottle (it's not for use with glass bottles) don't compress, you've effectively created an airtight seal and equalized the internal pressure. As the name "Fizz-Keeper" suggests, it's all in an effort to ensure that Saturday's soda makes a gin and tonic effervescently refreshing, even on a Tuesday. --Tony Mason
iRacing article with David Newton
ESPN.com NASCAR writer David Newton drives at Indianapolis while Dale Earnhardt Jr. advises. Whether it was the driver's or the advisor's fault, a lap around Indy proved to be an adventure for the writer.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~Indy's tough in real, vitual world
MOORESVILLE, N.C. -- My No. 64 Sprint Cup Car approaches the Yard of Bricks, that famous piece of real estate on the front straightaway at Indianapolis Motor Speedway that race car drivers yearn to kiss.
I'm going 170 mph.
"Stay on the gas," says the voice in my ear.
"You ain't going to get to 200," the voice says.
"Oops!" the voice says.
A millisecond later the car careens into the wall and then bounces back toward the Turn 1 terrace, where it comes to a rest. The voice knew it was coming and got a laugh out of knowing he was right at my expense.
"I told you this wasn't easy," the voice says.
The voice belongs to Dale Earnhardt Jr., my crew chief, so to speak. We recently spent several hours at his house on "Dirty Mo Acres" to partake in one of his favorite pastimes: iRacing.
Here -- in a corner room overlooking the driveway with the rusty old pickup Earnhardt drives around these 200 acres -- is where NASCAR's most popular driver gets away from the world, sometimes for six or more hours a day.
Here he can compete without the pressure of making the Chase or living up to the standards of his father, seven-time champion Dale Earnhardt. Here he can interact with other competitors, some of whom have become lifelong friends, and yell at his crew chief without worry that what he says will be scrutinized by fans and reporters.
Here nobody cares that he hasn't won a real Cup event since Michigan of 2008.
Here he can be himself.
"Sh--, time just flies," Earnhardt says.
Sleep deprivation may pull Earnhardt away, but hunger or thirst seldom do. He keeps a mini-fridge
close by to take care of that. He's not confined by a hot and sometimes uncomfortable firesuit either. On this day he's wearing a white T-shirt, blue sweatpants and white socks with orange highlights.
This is a labor of love. Earlier this year, when teammate Jimmie Johnson wanted help preparing for a grand-am road course race at Watkins Glen, Earnhardt personally went to the four-time defending Sprint Cup champion's home and installed iRacing.
"Yeah, I wanted to make sure it was done right," Earnhardt says. "It's not simple. And it's a challenge to move around if you've never been on it. I wanted to give him an idea what the quickest way is to get on the track without [messing] around and just looking at it and feeling lost."
It apparently helped. Johnson more than held his own in the Daytona Prototype car, then a few weeks later won his first road-course race in the Cup Series at Sonoma.
"I should have spent more time with [Prototype car simulation], working on the setup and trying to make the car go faster," Johnson says. "But it was very helpful. As I got up to speed I could see how
it helped with the visual references and the rhythm. I learned the shift points, what gear to be in where -- which was totally different than our Cup car with their five-speed gearbox -- and how
much faster those cars are in the turns."
Earnhardt smiles as I share what Johnson said.
"That is the perfect scenario where this is helpful," Earnhardt says. "He'd never seen the route before out the windshield of a race car. He didn't even know what everything looked like. When you can even just cruise around, when you get there in real life you feel like you've done it.
"So when he got to the track his lap times were right there. I'm almost 100 percent certain it was because he was able to cut the learning curve."
My learning curve was much steeper. I wanted to tackle Indianapolis in anticipation of this week's race at the 2.5-mile track.
It should be noted this is not one of Earnhardt's favorite tracks in real life or iRacing. In real life his average finish is 21.5, worse than all but four other tracks. He's failed to finish three of the past five races there, two ending with blown engines and another with a wreck.
But that was the challenge, so Earnhardt did his best to oblige. He spent an hour working on the setup before my arrival, hoping to find something that would get both of us through this test -- and maybe even help him in the real race.
"It seems to be more of a challenge on the sims than it is in real life," Earnhardt says as he prepares for his first lap.
He settles into the chair, checks his brakes, clutch and gas pedal that are more sophisticated than most. He then looks into the three-paneled computer monitor that allows him to get not only a view of the track out the windshield but both sides of the car.
It's virtually the same view he and 42 other drivers will see when they go green Sunday because of laser scan technology that
The Brighton Salon | Green Capitalism: manufacturing scarcity in an age of abundance by James Heartfield
James Heartfield presented the Brighton Salon Book Launch in Conversation with Rob Clowes in March
What follows is Sean Bell's report
James Heartfield was candid about what had driven him to publish Green Capitalism. He was annoyed by what he called the sheer hypocrisy of super-rich environmentalists jetting around the world telling everybody else that that they shouldn’t go jetting around the world.
Al Gore, whose $30 million share of Microsoft is just a part of his personal wealth, justifies his jetting by pointing out that he pays for carbon offsets. James says he doesn’t: Paramount Pictures pays Al Gore’s carbon offsets – to a company chaired by Al Gore!
James briefly (and I thought clearly) introduced the ideas in his book before he was questioned and cross-examined by the chair and audience but, to skip ahead, it emerged in the bar afterwards that some of those present were confused about his stance. To summarise: James sees great advantages in capitalist mass-production and industry and the economic growth and social development that implies. However, that development and the goods it makes available to many of us are by-products of the real objective of capitalist production - to make money, not useful things. In recent times, many capitalists and companies have promoted and shaped the environmental agenda to realise big profits from making nothing at all while simultaneously convincing people that they should make do with less. So while James is critical of the system, which has always been unfair to many people, he sees what advantages it has being completely eroded for the luckier consumers with unnecessary cutbacks in production.
The Seattle riots of nine years ago had an anti-capitalist character that was against big business. Now the green agenda has moved from the margins and into the mainstream to the extant that only people such as petrol-headed Jeremy Clarkson or the head of Ford buck the universal ideology of green capitalism.
Al Gore, Zac Goldsmith, Bill Gates and Prince Charles are now leading voices in environmentalism. Hugh Fearnly-Whittingstall wants us to spend eight quid rather than two on our chickens. Universities and hospitals are forced to buy carbon offset rights from big energy companies such as BP (British Petroleum) and Esso.
James identifies the process that popularises these trends as the manufacture of scarcity, a cultural creation of shortage that strangely echoes the WW2 rationing advice of boiling nettles for soup. In previous generations poor people really were undernourished and suffered from complaints such as rickets that left them with bent legs for their whole lives. Poor people are now fat and there’s no shortage of food. Indeed we throw about two thirds of it away.
Capitalists are largely responsible, James says, for creating the idea that the earth’s resources are running out. Oil, for example, is increasingly being found in the largely unexplored depths of the earth’s crust. The warming atmosphere is reinvented as a shortage of atmosphere by current carbon emission regulations and land is being withdrawn from food production because agriculture is so efficient, creating the raising food prices now blamed on bio fuel production.
Buy an organic chicken if you want to, James argues, but being cruel to chickens is fine. We are not forced to buy organic. Sixty billion people (unless one advocates a cull) cannot live on the earth without mass production and being cruel to nature. There are no shortages as such, just some people withholding the means of existence from others.
Brighton Salon Chairman Robert Clowes asked James if he thought green ideas originally came from the right and if the environmental movement was an ideology that came from the top down rather than from the bottom up, as most people would say. Also, how
could James say that green ideas were incoherent, employing arguments that did not match up with solutions to problems? Surely we are all affected by the ethics of the environmental movement.
Fashions come and go, said James. He used to read Soviet Weekly in the late 70s at college and it was always contrasting the evil capitalist despoliation of nature with the ‘immaculate’ conservation of the Soviet Union! Both left and right had used ecological arguments over the years. The American radicals of the 60s had taken up ecology and environmental issues as part of their competition with the organised left. The Ecology Party in Britain, in protest against mass society and modernity, was critical of both the ruling elite above and the working class organisations below its middle-class base. However, the Club of Rome, involving Fiat, had fixed natural limits firmly onto the political agenda.
The organised left was humiliated by the events of 1989 [when the Berlin Wall came down and the Communist bloc gave up] and so embraced environmentalism.
James said his book is specifically about green capitali
