  • Fire Retardant Test of linen to British Standards (Crib on top)

    In prisons, hospitals, detention centres and other secure units it is imperative and indeed a legal obligation to ensure fire retardant bed linen is issued. This bed linen must comply with BS 7175: 1989 Ignition Source 7 passing the crib test placed at both the top and below the sample. The video shows this test and the flaming combustion must self extinguish in a pre-defined time as the fabric retracts away from the flame and self extinguishes.

    With the help of her singing rabbit puppet Petunia, Darci Lynne Farmer, a 12-year-old ventriloquist from the Oklahoma City area, wowed the judges and studio audience on Tuesday's season premiere of "America's Got Talent." For her audition, Darci and her bunny buddy crooned an incredible rendition of George Gershwin's "Summertime" from "Porgy and Bess." Not only did she control the puppet with skill and charm to spare, but the girl also managed to sing beautifully through clenched teeth.

  • Barclaycard Advert

    This advert represents a strange "first" in British bank advertising history - although desperate to express their individuality and advertise on TV, British banks were tied by a gentleman's agreement to only issue bland joint statements on policy. In 1966 Barclays were able to break the agreement in a rather ingenious way. They advertised BARCLAYCARD, a subsidiary company product, in Scotland, for customers of the British Linen Bank, another Barclays subsidiary company! Thanks to our friends at Barclays Group Archives, and Lloyds Banking Group Archives, we are pleased to present the British Linen Bank Barclaycard Advert, not seen for decades.

In prisons, hospitals, detention centres and other secure units, it is imperative and indeed a legal obligation to ensure fire retardant bed linen is issued. This bed linen must comply with BS 7175: 1989 Ignition Source 7 passing the crib test placed at both on top and below the sample. The video shows this test - the flaming combustion must self extinguish in a pre-defined time as the fabric retracts away from the flame and self extinguishes.

See how the East Indiaman Götheborg was built just as in the 18th century! This documentary follows the building of the exact replica ship; from the selection of 200-year-old oak trees to the traditional, hand-made carpentry and blacksmith work, and the making of 1.964 sqm hand-sewn linen canvas sails and 20 tons of hand-made hemp ropes. This is a truly fascinating documentary that everyone with an interest in old, traditional 18th century shipbuilding ought to see! Se hur replika ostindiefararen och fullriggaren Götheborg byggdes precis som på 1700-talet! Denna dokumentär följer skeppsbygget, från selektionen av 200-åriga ekträd, till det traditionella snickeri, gjuteri och järnsmide arbetet, de 1.964 kvm handsydda seglen av linneduk och 20 ton handgjorda repen av hampa. Detta är en fascinerande dokumentär som alla med ett intresse för gammalt, genuint och traditionellt skeppsbygge bör se! 'The Swedish Ship "Götheborg" is made of oak. Oak timber is hard, strong and resistant to decay as it contains tannin. This is why oak has always been by far the most popular wood for shipbuilding in Europe. Oak has been used for beams, knees and planking. More than a thousand oak logs from southern Sweden and Denmark have been used. Other important tree species include pine, spruce and elm. Pine has mainly been used for the ribs, decks and masts, spruce for the yards and spars, and elm for the blocks. The new East Indiaman's gun deck has ten six-pound cast iron cannons. The cannons were cast according to a drawing dating back to the 1700s from Åkers Styckebruk in the province of Södermanland, the most important cannon producer in Sweden at the time. 18th century East Indiamen were mainly designed to sail in a tailwind. The rigging is an exact reconstruction of the original rigging from the 18th century. Built mainly using 18th century technology and materials. Rig: Full-rigged square sails Number of masts: Three Number of yards: Ten Heaviest yard: 1,7 ton Material of the mast: Pine, approx 37 pines Material of the yard: Fir Rope/cordage: 20 ton hand-made hemp Number of blocks: approx 650 st Hight above waterline: 47 m The sails are made, maintained and repaired by hand. During voyages there are always sailmakers on board to carry out repairs when the sails are damaged. It takes eight years for a sailmaker to make all the sails for the ship, which is why new production always is carried out. Totalt har det gått 4000 m3 virke, varav 75 % ek och 25 % furu i bygget av Götheborg. Allt virke specialbeställdes eftersom skeppsvirke inte kan köpas på vanliga brädgårdar. Eken behövde vara 100 -- 200 år gammal. 10 kanoner i gjutjärn, sexpundare. Originalet hade 30 kanoner, både tre- och sexpundare som försvar mot pirater och andra anfallande skepp. 1700-talets ostindiefarare var i huvudsak undanvinds-seglare. Riggen är en exakt rekonstruktion av en originalrigg för en ostindiefarare från mitten av 1700-talet. Tågvirket till den stående och den löpande riggen väger cirka 20 ton. För att manövrera riggen finns inga moderna hjälpmedel. Den hanteras helt och hållet med muskelkraft. Ostindiefararen Götheborg är ett tremastat skepp med råsegel, dvs. rektangulära segel, på alla tre masterna. Förr i tiden kallades ett skepp av det här slaget fregatt riggat, i dag kallar vi det ett fullriggat skepp eller en fullriggare. Riggtyp: Fullriggad råseglare Antal master: Tre Antal rår: Tio Tyngsta råt: 1,7 ton Längsta råt: 23 m Masternas virke: furu, ca 37 furor Rårnas virke: gran Tågvirke: 20 ton handslagen hampa Antal block: ca 650 st Riggens höjd över vattenlinjen: 47 m Samtliga segel ombord tillverkas och repareras för hand. Under långseglingar finns det hela tiden segelmakare ombord för att utföra reparationer när segel får skador. Det tar åtta år för en segelmakare att sy alla segel till skeppet, därför pågår ständig nyproduktion och reparationer av seglen.'

This advert represents a strange "first" in British bank advertising history - although desperate to express their individuality and advertise on TV, British banks were tied by a gentleman's agreement to only issue bland joint statements on policy. In 1966 Barclays were able to break the agreement in a rather ingenious way. They advertised BARCLAYCARD, a subsidiary company product, in Scotland, for customers of the British Linen Bank, another Barclays subsidiary company! Thanks to our friends at Barclays Group Archives, and Lloyds Banking Group Archives, we are pleased to present the British Linen Bank Barclaycard Advert, not seen for decades.
