The History Of Plastic And Injection Molding

Written by

When Alexander Parkes invented the first thermoplastic in 1856, he probably had no idea how pervasive his invention would become in the centuries that followed. Today, thanks to the invention of injection molding, plastic is used in almost any industry you can imagine, including manufacturing, packaging, construction, education, transportation, and healthcare.

The use of plastic in manufacturing has been expanding exponentially since it was introduced over one and a half centuries ago. For example, by 2018, the production of plastics on a global scale reached almost 360 metric tons. It is expected that over a billion metric tons of plastics will be produced by 2050.

From the numbers above, it’s clear that plastic will continue to be an important part of the manufacturing process. Consequently, processes like injection molding will continue to play a significant role for those who want to manufacture thousands, if not millions, of products with plastic components.

In this article, we follow the history of plastic and injection molding. We start by focusing on the events that led to the invention of plastic as we know it today. The article will then focus on the invention of the first plastic molding machine and how the technology has progressed since then.

John Wayne: The Forgotten History of “The Duke”

Written by

John Wayne is an American Hollywood icon every bit the equal of James Dean or Marilyn Monroe. He is also a man from another era, a man whose conservatism came as naturally as walking down the street. Affectionately known as “The Duke,” he spent three decades as a top box office draw with 179 film and television credits to his name.

My Dear Britannia,

 

I have just watched a policeman in GREAT Britain on Sky News kneeling on a man’s (suspect’s?) neck and I started screaming: UNBRITISH! UNBRITISH! UNBRITISH!

PART 5

…between a nation’s two most objectionable alternatives – Judas of Daura and Barabbas of Adamawa

 

“Russia has landed on the moon, the U.S.A. too has landed on the moon and China has just landed, but Nigerians can’t even feed themselves and govern themselves yet at a time when the re-colonization debate is ongoing in the West.

What occupies the minds of the babies called Nigerians are what they can eat, wear, the latest exotic cars and technologies, marrying many wives, partaking in the National Cake Extravaganza, endless partying (Owambe), Obitos, wealth without working – money, money, money, appearances, dumping one girl and going for another, moon sighting as directed by the Sultan of Sokoto and other emirs, the niqab/hija wahala, hunting for miracles, where they can live, accolades and approval of society.”

Chad has ratified the Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Discrimination against Women (CEDAW) in 1995, more popularly known as the Women's Convention is the international women's rights treaty that spells out women's rights and obliges governments to ensure respect for these rights. However, it's still not sure whether there are some Chadian women know that if Chad ratified the optional protocol to CEDAW or the Protocol to the African Charter on Human and Peoples' Rights on the Rights of Women in Africa, better known as the Maputo Protocol.

SERIES: BUHARISM AND THE FIERCE URGENCY OF NOW


Never in the history of all polities and democracies had a party so enjoyed a 100% goodwill as the APC did, whilst campaigning  and on actually capturing power, but gone ahead to squander it on the altars of complacency, incurable crass insensitivity, divisiveness, authoritarianism, politcal aggrandizement, vendetta, grandiose greed/avarice, nepotism, regionalism, stupendous corruption, favouritism, hereditary privilege, religious bigotry, violence to national psyche and actual blood-lettings, cultural ethnocentrism and imperialism.

As the potentate of the ancient city of Kano, SLS points his accusing finger at the Yorubas for being the troublers of the Nigerian Federation, he must not forget that four fingers are pointing back at himself and his ilk - the caliphate delusionists, and by extension, his own Fulani ethnic nationality that have continued to hold the nation by the jugular since independence. And what is more, under the current Hausa-Fulani Government as led by Muhammadu Buhari, a supra Fulani irredentist like Sanusi himself, the whole of the nation's five fingers are pointing at his nomadic cousins for their bestial tendencies, brutishness and monstrosity!

2015: Between Liberation and Slavery , Part 1

Written by

Non-caliphate Nigerians seem to have no clue what time it is in their history. They are unaware that they have arrived at the fateful junction where, depending on how they vote on Feb 14, they will either go into slavery for untold generations to come, or set out on a path to liberation. They have sleepwalked into their moment of fateful decision. If they don’t wake up now, they could vote themselves into slavery. But if, by some miracle, they are startled or shaken awake, they have a chance to vote their way out of the slavery path on which they have been for 70 years.

My task today is to help them see that such is the case. In the first section “Discourse on our mumu”, I shall explore why most Nigerians have been oblivious of what the basic struggle in Nigeria has been about since 1945. I shall then, in the section “2015 Election issues”, examine the issues that are dominating this election. And show why the peoples of the New South should not allow themselves to be conned into voting for Buhari, the Caliphate candidate.

Introduction

Although there is no strict legal definition as there is for a refugee, but the United Nations Report - Guiding Principles on Internal Displacement defines an Internally displaced people/persons (also referred to as DPRE in many civil and military parlance) as people or groups of people who have been forced or obliged to escape or to leave their homes or places of habitual residence, in particular as a result of or in order to avoid the effects of armed conflict, situations of generalized violence, violations of human rights or natural or human-made disasters, and who have not crossed an internationally recognized State border. Please note that an internally displaced person (IDP) should not to be confused with the term "displaced person," which may encompass both internally displaced persons and refugees. The United Nations Refugee Agency (UNHCR) asserts that internally displaced persons or IDPs as they are sometimes referred to are among the world’s most vulnerable or defenseless people. According to the UNHCR, by the end of 2014, a record-breaking 38 million people were forcibly displaced within their own country by violence.

Since Buhari was elected President, non-Caliphate pundits have been publicly offering suggestions on the changes he should make. These are changes the pundits think can fix Nigeria’s well-known problems: Corruption, the bloated and costly government structures, the lavish emoluments of legislators, and the like. Fooled by Buhari’s “Change” mantra, they imagine that what concerns them, fixing Nigeria in the interest of ordinary Nigerians, is also of interest to Buhari.

Our Aims

  • To expose all levels of corruption in Nigeria, especially official corruption and by so doing ensure probity and accountability in every sphere of the Nigerian life.
  • To within the body politic stir up the spirit of nationalism amongst Nigerians aimed at pushing back the tides of ethnic chauvinism, tribal jingoism, religious bigotry, oligarchism, cronyism and nepotism.
