During 2009, Brockman Resources Limited has positioned itself at the forefront of Australia's emerging iron ore sector, with significant exploration and development studies during the year. This firmly established the Marillana Project as a world class iron ore deposit capable of supporting a long-term, high quality iron ore export business. Brockman has made major strides in the development of the project during the year and is targeting first production by early 2013.

Resource Sector update August 2009 Transcript: Now the markets, since the last one of these, you can see that theyve preformed very very well, particularly the resource sector, the gold price has held fairly steady in US dollar terms (in A$ its fallen because we had a much stronger $A) but weve seen quite good performances out of the base metals over the few months, reflecting the Chinese restocking and a realization that probably were not going to see a rerun of the 30s even though Wall St economists and analysts are very much influenced by perhaps whats happening in their banking system and in their economy generally. But there are other places we should be looking. China, clearly is growing very well, weve seen steel production exceed 600million tones, thats a new record level over the last couple of months, so higher than the level of 2008, and thats a great contrast with whats happening in the United States, where its only running at about 55miilion tones, so its more than 10 times the size there in china at moment and it dwarfs whatever is happening in the United States. The performance of the stocks, really the base metal stocks, things like the Mincors and Independence Groups, and the Kagara Zincs all those have done very well at that mid cap range, and what were seeing also now is some of the smaller stocks are starting to perform as people recognise that these things are really extremely cheap, theyre coming off the floor so were seeing very good percentage rises. We should see a lot more of these things particularly for the gold and base metal players. The Iron Sector has been also buoyed by the iron or shipments into China at very high levels theyre record levels of imports into china and the prices of Iron ore above the benchmark prices achieved and set earlier this year. So a lot of those little Iron Ore companies are positioning themselves quite well. In the coal sector we see a parallel, and improvement there, and some mines have been reopened, weve still got the navies of ships sitting off the ports, all waiting to pick up on the coal and the numbers were starting to see for thermal coal demand going out two or three years are still quite substantial, were looking at about 5% per annum over the next 2-3 years increase in seaborne trade, most of that income really has to come from Australia. So the Australian resource sector is looking quite good, and its assisted by the US equity market rallying. The driving force is obviously the very large level of liquidity, easing monetary conditions, and were seeing the American dollar weaken as a result of the increase in supply of dollars, the American bond market weakening, as a reflection of the increase in the supply in bonds, and with the deficits continuing hitting 1.8trillion dollars or there about for the next year or two, thats a lot of bonds that need to be rolled over or issued. So we must see lower bond prices, higher yields and I think were also going to see quite strong inflationary pressures picking up, particularly in the United States. That will come back and impact the gold price, reasonably soon. I think the next two or three weeks will be the critical stage, however we look at it, the driving force of China, India, South America, middle East with a rise in demand for raw materials, and that those monetary issues effecting the US and UK as well, weakness in currencies, all those are just going to push money into the resource sector. We saw 10 years of commodity bull market, from the December quarter 98, up until the big correction last year, but should be seen as a correction. We saw the low in November 98, in terms of commodity stocks, they didnt participate in the new lows that we saw in March, and they look as if theyve probably got another five to six years of bull market ahead of us. Sure its not going to be straight up, therell be rocky bits, but it has been robust from here and I think its going to be robust for a bit longer, and then well get some sort of correction, of some sort of sector rotation and then probably a very strong market again, probably in early 2010. But I think most of 2009 will be good before we start getting that correction. But if the gold price does what I think it might do we may in fact find that correction is really only a matter of rotation within the market, gold market and the speculative should have a very good run up until Christmas.

I built a like-new(but really refurbished) iPhone 6S 16GB entirely from parts I bought in the public cell phone parts markets in Huaqiangbei. And it works! How much did it cost? Answer here: https://youtu.be/-KucQDXnKws I've been fascinated by the cell phone parts markets in Shenzhen, China for a while. I'd walked through them a bunch of times, but I still didn't understand basic things, like how they were organized or who was buying all these parts and what they were doing with them. So when someone mentioned they wondered if you could build a working smartphone from parts in the markets, I jumped at the chance to really dive in and understand how everything works. Well, I sat on it for nine months, and then I dove in.

This 1980 film was made for the US Department of Labor's Employment Standards Administration (ESA) which administers the Federal Black Lung Disability Trust Fund. The film, narrated by Cliff Robertson, looks at the life of coal miners in a small town in the United States. We learn that federal legislation regarding black lung disease improved the lives of the inhabitants of the town. In the last decade, over 10,000 miners have died of coal workers' pneumoconiosis, or what is commonly called black lung disease. The disease is also known by Black lung disease, which is caused by inhaling coal mine dust, results in scarring of the lungs and emphysema, shortness of breath, disability, and premature death. Like all occupational diseases, black lung is man-made and can be prevented. In fact, the U.S. Congress ordered black lung to be eradicated from the coal industry in 1969. While the prevalence of black lung disease had decreased by about 90% from 1969 to 1995 following the enactment of the Coal Mine Health and Safety Act, the downward trend of this disease in coal miners has stopped. Since 1995, the prevalence of black lung cases has more than doubled. Many current underground miners (some as young as in their 30s) are developing severe and advanced cases. Identification of advanced cases among miners under age 50 is of particular concern, as they were exposed to coal-mine dust in the years after implementation of the disease prevention measures mandated by the 1969 federal legislation. An increased risk of pneumoconiosis has also been associated with work in certain mining jobs, in smaller mines, in several geographic areas, and among contract miners. For more information, go to the NIOSH Science Blog at http://www.cdc.gov/niosh/blog/nsb081808_blacklung.html . Late in 1968, a number of miners organized the West Virginia Black Lung Association, which successfully led a campaign to introduce a bill in the 1969 session of the West Virginia legislature making coal workers' pneumoconiosis a compensable disease. The compensation bill was quickly made a major issue by the Black Lung Association and militant miners in February when the legislation ran into opposition from the coal-operator-dominated legislature. Most of the 40,000 miners in West Virginia walked out of the mines, and a large number of them marched on the state capitol in Charleston demanding passage of the bill. Three weeks later, after the Governor signed the bill, the miners went back to work. This was one of the largest and longest strikes ever on the single issue of occupational health. This strike played a vital role in the ultimate passage of similar legislation in three more states in 1969 and one in 1971, and the enactment of the Federal Coal Mine Health and Safety Act of 1969. In this Act, Congress established the black lung benefits program, the first and only federal compensation statute to compensate victims of occupational diseases. In 1977, amendments established a Black Lung Disability Trust Fund to provide compensation to miners whose employers no longer existed, financed by taxes paid by all coal operators. They also made coal companies directly responsible for compensation and medical costs for black lung victims that had worked for them.

This is the second installment of Summer 2017. This is the more cooler side of my Job. The other side is simply running around doing errands for my Professors and Hauling Bins around the office. After trying (and hilariously failing) at explaining what I do in the Nanotechnology Lab, I decided to make a video on it. I worked on 4 pieces of Equipment, the F20 Thin Film Analyzer, TT AFM, Polyvar SC, and lastly the Ellipsometry System. It was truly an honor to be allowed to play with all of these fun toys. A huge thank you to Professor Pedrotti for allowing me to work in the Nanolab. THE MUSIC IS NOT MINE. I HAVE A DISCLAIMER IN THE VIDEO. Footage was captured at the Nanotechnology Lab at Texas State Technical College at Waco. Music by Not The King - Pill R/B
