5 Wall Flap Wine Rack

The NASA pioneered eco-system, which is on everyone’s wish list this year.
We all aim to be original, thoughtful and unique when we buy presents for friends and loved ones but if like most, you struggle to find a gift that will wow then look no further! Ecosphere was developed by scientists at NASA to create a self-contained ecosystem which features small marine shrimp, algae and micro-organisms – all contained within filtered sea water in a hand blown, completely closed class sphere.
The ecosystem was designed by NASA to be incredibly enlightening and stimulating from an educational point of view but they also act as great gifts and centre pieces in the home and office.
The function of each ecosphere is like a battery. The energy gained through the light is stored and biochemically transformed. In order for the algae to produce oxygen, it needs light and carbon dioxide which is the process of photosynthesis. The shrimp breathe the oxygen produced by the algae and eat some of the algae and bacteria within the system. The bacteria is also essential to the ecosystem, as it transforms the waste produced inside the ecosystem into reusable nutrients for the algae and shrimp. To close the circle of life and interdependence in the Ecosphere, the shrimp and bacteria both create carbon dioxide which is again needed by the algae to start the circle with photosynthesis. Through this distribution of labour the Ecosphere achieves a balance of nature in its most simplistic form.
As each and every ecosphere is a self-sustaining ecosystem, the living organisms will utilise the natural resources to thrive and will not overpopulate or contaminate their environment. Because of the nature of the ecosphere it does not require essentially any maintenance. Scientifically, each ecosphere demonstrates the delicate nature of our earth environment.
The only care the sphere requires is a source of indirect natural or artificial light. The gorgonia, gravel and glass provide the ecosystem a place for the micro-organisms to flourish that help feed and sustain the life cycle that allow the ecosphere to function.
Ecospheres have an average life expectancy of 2-3 years however it is not uncommon for them to survive for 7 to 10 years. We have even been fortunate enough to hear from customers wishing to replace a 14 year old sphere!

AlcoSense Lite 2
Christmas is the season of office parties, and celebrating with friends and family.
Responsible motorists would never dream of driving after a few drinks, but it’s surprisingly easy to have residual alcohol in your system the following morning.
Almost one in five drink drive convictions are the morning after the night before, and a third of all breath tests after an accident are conducted between 7am and 1pm.
You can now remove potentially fatal guesswork as to whether you’re safe to drive with the AlcoSense Lite 2 personal breathalyser.
Designed in the UK, it brings new levels of reliability and precision to the under £50 sector – thanks to an upgraded sensor, sampling system and simplified operation.
It gives you clear results in seconds. All you need for a reading is to turn the unit on, wait for it to count down to zero, then blow until it beeps. If you want to re-test, simply wait five minutes for the sensor to clear and blow again.
The new AlcoSense Lite 2 is aimed at the occasional user looking to check their level of intoxication, before deciding whether to get behind the wheel the morning after they’ve consumed alcohol.
It can be set to the drink drive limit in England, Wales and Northern Ireland – or the lower limit in Scotland and Republic of Ireland.
Sleekly designed in striking white, the pocket-sized AlcoSense Lite 2 is available priced £44.99 from Halfords or online at www.alcosense.co.uk

The festive season is just around the corner, a time for getting together with family and friends, sharing good times and presents. But with all that festive fun comes the age-old problem – what to get the tricky, hard-to-shop-for ones on your list who already have everything?
Now Carling, Britain’s Number 1 beer* and mastermind behind this summer’s sensational interlocking pint glasses, is serving up an original gift idea for beer lovers everywhere.
