The Role of Commercial Divers: When is Deep “Deep”?

Commercial DiversOften mistaken as having the same abilities as a scuba diver, commercial offshore divers know more than the basics of diving. They’re not your average diver.

For instance, an entry-level commercial diver requires additional training before they can assist underwater construction services. Uccdive.com added that they have to use different types of diving gears, several types of materials, and plenty of skills to carry out certain duties.

The Dynamic Role

Commercial divers inspect and repair services in offshore oil. For both offshore and inshore services, they are necessary for the fitting of power plant outfall and intake pipes, in harbor construction, and in pipe pulls. These divers need thorough experience and training to ensure that underwater facilities are on stream even if it is through underwater welding, security of a platform, or recovery of a vessel.

Like anyone who spends a long time underwater, the U.S. Department of Labor says commercial divers are at risk of hypothermia, respiratory and circulatory problems, and drowning.

The Deepest “Deep”

Marianas Trench has the depth of 11,033 meters below sea level and is the deepest place among all oceans. It lies north of Guam in the Pacific Ocean running for 2,550 km below the waters lying between Japan and Australia. The only known person who has ever reached the depths was the explorer and movie director James Cameron using a manned craft.

Cameron constructed a 24-foot submersible vehicle for the dive, calling it the Deepsea Challenger. He describes it as a long, green torpedo that vertically maneuvers through the water. Equipped with nine and a half inches thick window, he was able to watch his descent and view the remarkable species on the ocean floor.

The new technology and vehicles today enable mankind to investigate more on the mysteries that lie in the deepest ocean floors. Someday soon, this capacity will be able to benefit commercial divers in their work.

Four Ingredients to Include in Your Chicken Feed to Produce Delicious Eggs

Chicken EggsGetting the best eggs on your table could be attributed to one key factor: using the right chicken feed. With the right mix of ingredients, your chook can produce eggs with great taste, colour and quality.

Chicken eggs are a staple in most diets. They are versatile and accessible. Aside from the breed type and how the chickens are raised, using the right blend could determine the outcome of the eggs.

For chooks to produce great tasting eggs with healthy yellow yolks and consistent whites, consider certain factors when purchasing their chow.

Plenty of Protein

Chickens are omnivores, which means they eat both animal and plant base food. Give them the right amount of protein they need for their own bodily needs. There should be enough protein for their egg production. On average, Livestrong.com says eggs are composed of six grams of protein; three grams go to the yolk and the remaining on the white part.

Ingredients like worms and bugs are the ideal sources. You can also use fish meat. Takaninifeeds.co.nz mentions soya meal as another source of protein, especially for hens.

Mix in the Greens

Aside from protein, eggs are also composed of nutrients, which could be incorporated by including vegetables in the feed. The mix could include lettuce, kale or any kitchen vegetable leftovers.

Easy on the Carbs

To give the eggs its richness, add carb sources like dried corn to the feed. However, carbs tend to make the chicken eat less of the food that matters, like the protein sources and greens, so keep this in moderation.

Water

Even if chickens receive the most appetising feeds, they may not eat as much if it's not served with fresh water. Hens that are about to lay eggs tend to drink plenty of water to help with the process.

Each farmer has their own mix of feed for their chook. To get the best eggs served in your kitchen, be mindful of what you feed your chickens.
