1. Cooking with stainless steel cookware...?

pre heat the pan, I have AllClad and it will stick if I dont pre heat it first. Same as when I worked in a deli, they would pre heat also. Check out the "Consumer Report" of cooking, they explained the science behind pre heating.

3. Can we use both Galvanized and stainless steel chimney pipe in a chimney?

Galvanized metal will not with stand the constant heat from a chimney. If the chimney in question is going to be used on a wood stove or fireplace should be all stainless steel with a temp rating of 2100 degs. if the chimney is going to be for a gas heater an aluminum chimney might be able to be used. Either way you can not mix and match chimney metals because of the corrosion that will take place under the constant heating conditions

4. can i gauge my ears with plugs instead of tapers?

Well, tapers should not be worn as jewelry in the first place. Tapers are used to gradually stretch your ears and then once they are through they should immediately be followed by plugs. Stretching without tapers and just forcing the jewelry through is not a good idea at all. If your lobes are a standard size, you will probably want to start off at 16g. There are plenty of websites with jewelry and tapers on them... Just make sure that you do not get cheap acrylic body jewelry. For fresh piercings after you stretch them you want to be wearing stainless steel or titanium. If you do not know a lot about stretching, I strongly recommend you either talk to a piercer or do a lot of online research on what to do and what not to do. It's really easy to screw up your piercings.

6. What color walls would look the best with medium oak kitchen cabinets and stainless steel appliances ?

Reds,Peaches, beige's, bronze, browns, taupe,sunny yellows,sage greens for the wall color choices...For the floors....One could go to Medium blond to red oaks or maples in floor laminates....But you could go darker into the walnut shades as well for the floor ,( as it would help balance the ubatuba dark counter tops) The distressed looks are clean and beautiful . ...Flooring placed on the diagonal makes a space appear larger

7. What details should I consider when replacing my toilet whilst adding 1" of height to the bathroom floor?

Yes there are extensions for this very thing. A big hardware store will have it. Just know beforehand the I.D. = inside diameter of the flange, cast iron or PVC, and do not forget to buy another wax ring if your toilet style is an old model installed years ago. (common in the US) You will have to consider the two bolts that are on either side of the toilet base. Are they rusty? Change to stainless steel, or do you call that INOX in Europe? (whilst...) Making the toilet height HIGHER than it used to be on the old floor is uncomfortable. But lowering it one inch will not. (in my experience of doing it the wrong way, long ago.)

8. how to clean rust from stainless steel sink?

Try rubbing the affected area with a lead pencil

9. Stainless steel versus plastic bowls?

I dont think so, plastic bowls the dog will try to chew it up as tosy,. keep you tolit closed and something heavy on top of the lid to keep him/her out, forcing the dog to use other source for water. if the dog get thirsty enough he/she will drink from it cause you can not go with out liquids in you body. They say you can lead a horse to water but can not make him/her drink it.

What Are the Benefits of Using Stainless Steel Signs?
PAYING the crew for sex, passengers getting caught with cocaine on board and “sh*gger” newcomers working their way through their colleagues and passengers – anything goes while afloat on a cruise ship.According to passengers who were being filmed for a new Channel 4 reality show,the scenes on their boat included a "drug-fuelled orgy" with cocaine being "easier to buy than booze.”Yet such shenanigans are all in a day’s work for anyone who has worked in the cruise ship industry.Four ex-crew members reveal all:Claire Sanders, 27, worked as a hairdresser on cruise ships all over the world for a year when she was 20.Claire says: "Before you board though you are thoroughly checked out for your seaworthiness. The female crew are obliged to undergo pregnancy tests and everyone has to take a drugs test.My hours were 8am to 8pm and it was 100 per cent commission - if I didn’t have any hair to style – I didn’t get paid.We had a lot of solo passengers on the world cruises and when they got lonely they'd chat with the crew.Generally they were the older, retired types, but the bar staff and cleaners would think nothing of having sex with them for cash.They saw it as a way to top up their wages. And they weren't ashamed - everyone talked about it and everyone knew everyone else’s business.I’ve worked on the booze cruises between the UK and Belgium and they are a nightmare:If people aren’t fighting they are taking drugs - we got used to hearing reports of cocaine being found.On one world cruise in between the Cook Islands and Hawaii we were raided by the drug squad and immigration.We were so shocked when the sniffer dogs came on board with immigration and the drug squad. We were even more amazed at the amount of cocaine they found and how many people were kicked off the boat. These were retired pensioners catching some winter sun!I left my job there because I developed dermatitis from having my hands in the water all the time.It eventually cleared up with medication but I was told I’d never get medically cleared to work on a cruise ship again.But despite the drama, it’s a brilliant life below deck. It helped me grow up. I got to see amazing places - and party too."Business owner Tina Molson, 52, from Cleethorpes, worked in an on board duty free shop from 2002-2010.Tina says: "I worked at sea for eight years for two different cruise lines - one catered for younger passengers and the other for older clientele.Working on a cruise ship is a promiscuous lifestyle. Most crew memberswere jumping into bed with one another.The real action is below deck where staff hooked up all the time.There was often fancy dress parties in the crew bar, usually hosted by us 'shoppies.' We would decorate the crew bar and everyone would make costumes out of anything they could get their hands on.When anyone left with a member of the opposite sex everyone shouted, “Taxi!” as a joke to make sure everyone knew they'd pulled.It’s a lonely lifestyle and everyone was on the lookout for someone.The higher the rank, the better the cabin - so most girls wanted an officer regardless of their looks or marital status.Many of the officers had wife and kids back home - but no one seemed to care. The married men on board often led double lives.Travelling the world on a ship you get used to different nationalities. When the Australians were on board the cruise was lively with late night drinking and dancing. They like their booze!We had to work extra hard on the last day of the cruise - we’d be in the shop until the early hours,getting their booze orders ready to take off the ship. They would clear the shop of alcohol.It's not unusual for a Chinese passenger to walk into the shop and walk out with five designer handbags worth $4000 each.All cruise lines have sent their ships to China because they spend so much money.The passengers travel with large groups of family members. When one buys a bag all the family want one too.Rumour has it that the artificial plants outside the restaurant had to be removed.Some passengers would urinate on them. “No Spitting” signs also had to be placed on the bins around the ship.One passenger punched me on the bum as I was going up a flight of stairs. She didn't know where the restaurant was and decided that was the best way to get my attention. I was speechless.Many of the older passengers go on cruise ships for months because it's cheaper for them than living at home - and some even go to sea to die.There was often a death on board. On one ship we had a shop store room next to the freezer room where the bodies were stored. We called it the 'coffin locker'."James Harris, 47, from Somerset worked as a cruise ship photographer in the US for five years.James says:"My official job title was Photographer. But when you first start on ships at the bottom of the photo crew you’re called 'shagger' - because that’s what the young staff did!The hedonistic lifestyle and days in the sun meant the newbies would shag their way around the crew and passengers!It was a given that married crew would get with one another.Lots of officers would move their mistresses into their cabin for the season. But they'dhave to move out sharpish when the wives and children came aboard for holiday. It was seedy but common.As the cruise photographer I got to see people at their worst. One passenger was constantly on my case complaining that my photos made him look fat and asking me to retake them for him.I got my own back though. He ordered the Louis XIII brandy. The bottle cost over a thousand bucks and a glass was $180. The bar tender and I swapped it for a cheaper version when he wasn't looking.It was immensely satisfying watching him quaff his cheap brandy knowing that we’d been necking the real stuff for the entire cruise at his expense.Once the wine waiter and I were in the cellar when we were caught in a hurricane. All of the stainless steel cabinets opened and most - but not all - of the bottles smashed.As it was a luxury ship the breakages amounted to hundreds of thousands of dollars. Nobody could figure out exactly what was destroyed so they just wrote off the entire stock.We were able to stock up the crew wine supplies and were getting p*ssed on $500-a-bottle wines for weeks afterwards!It is tiring though. You work 80-hour weeks with no days off for the entire contract. But every night was party night. The crew bars are so much more fun that the passenger ones.It was a good job: no rent to pay, no food costs and no tax either. I never had any money though it always went on partying!"Hayley Jane, 38, from Luton, was a cruise hostess between 2009-2013Hayley says:"Crew parties were the best part of working on the ships, but security could be a nightmare when sneaking back to your cabin afterwards.They’re around 24/7 to breathalyse crew and catch us out. If you got caught p****d and over the limit – and many did – it was standard to be removed wherever the next port was.It happened to someone on the Panama Canal. God knows how they got home - I was just lucky enough to never get caught!Alcohol is everywhere - you hear the horror stories of people having drunk too much and running around the ship naked at stupid o’clock in the morning.We're all in close living quarters next to each other, so relationships do happen. The crew do sleep with the passengers - which is a no-no - but it happens.I’ve heard of staff having competitions to bed as many of the passengers as possible. I suppose that’s the equivalent to the mile high club.While I do miss it, I wouldn’t go back. My life has moved on."

As a rough guide, I will wear a balaclava under my helmet when it gets below around -15 Celsius but that’s mainly to keep my face warm rather than the top of my head. I always wear a neck-warmer though, unless the temperature is well above freezing.In the picture below you can see that my helmet is vented so it’s not quite as warm as my old helmet, which was not. However I do have a lot of hair so that probably helps to keep my head warm. It was about -18 when this picture was taken and I’m wearing neither a hat nor a balaclava. I was a little cold stood at the top of the lift there, but as soon as we set off downhill I was quite comfortable. You can see also my sons are covering their faces but I can assure you that they aren’t wearing hats either.Unless you are bald or it’s really cold, a hat is unnecessary. It’s just going to make your head sweaty and allow your helmet to move around more, which will compromise its effectiveness.
Son of Sebenza! Chris Reeve Knives' Umnumzaan Brings Quality in Spades.
Son of Sebenza! Chris Reeve Knives' Umnumzaan Brings Quality in Spades.
It took 20 years for Chris Reeve to come up with an heir apparent to his wildly popular and revered Sebenza model. Reeve, a former South African turned Idahoan, is the perennial winner of the Blade Show's Quality of Manufacturing award, crowned by a team of judges and those in attendance. It appears that Son of Sebenza was well worth the wait.The Umnumzaan, the Zulu word for "Boss" and referred to as "Zaan" for short, is a frame-lock folder. This design, popularized by Reeve, is a take-off of the popular Michael Walker-style liner lock. However it is widely considered to be stronger because the thick metal of the frame also serves as the locking leaf, as opposed to a thinner strip of metal inside the frame. The frame rails of the Zaan are 1/8" thick and made of top-shelf Titanium that not only offers strength, but weight savings. With a handle length of 4.77" the Zaan is Reeve's largest folder to date, and when engaged the 3.675" blade stretches the overall length to a smidgeon under 8.5".[ILLUSTRATION OMITTED] The S30V premium stainless steel blade sports a stonewashed double-clip design, deeply hollowground for added slice. Rather than a stop pin to serve as a blade stop, Reeve has ingeniously used ambidextrous thumb studs to do the job, and these have rubber O-rings to serve as "shock absorbers" when the blade snicks into the open position. Another improvement is the addition of a stronger pivot with oversized pins to keep the blade secure and inline during harsh use.What words and pictures can't describe is the extreme precision Reeve builds into his knives. Only by handling and cutting with one will you appreciate the tight construction, smooth action and vault-like lockup that has become his trademark over the years. The price for the Umnumzaan is $400; less than many custom knives that can't hold a candle to Chris Reeve's incredibly high standards.KNIFE: UMNUMZAAN MAKER: CHRIS REEVE KNIVES 2949 S.

They are all made from sheet steel, stainless steel, etc. which is rolled, pressed and shaped to the end requirement, and these pieces are then welded together. For pressure vessels, the quality of the welding is critical and subject to extensive checking - even X-ray analysis and ultrasound checking.

With a roasting time of about 15 minutes at a max. temperature of 230C this type of drum roasting, also known as long roasting, guarantees a better development of taste and flavours. During roasting the volume of the coffee beans becomes considerably larger, but there is also a certain weight loss due to baking. -------Autobody Repair Welding Choices?TIG welding is stronger and prettier but takes a whilke to master. A skilled welder can weld thin metal with a TIG with no warpage. MIG welding is plenty strong enough for autobody applications. You will find that most body shops do not even have TIG welders. Another way to attach non-structural metal is with adhesives. This is currently the most common way for body sheet metal to be attached. Check with your local autobody supply for more info. Chance are, they will carry Automix, Duramix, Fusor or one of the many brands of adhesives available. Best part about adhesives is no warpage------Best way to Round off sharp edge of Stainless steel appliance?I would call the Kenmore dealer and have them replace it. They want to know about the problem anyway so that they can get the manufacturer to correct the mistake at the factory. The dealer and manufactured should both be notified about the problem. I bet they will gladly fix the problem or replace the appliance. Manufacturers have to pay for an insurance known as Finish Product Liability and the only way to keep their premiums low is to be very proactive about fixing problems as you have described.------What kind of welder should I buy?For autos you will possibly in all danger discover it extra handy to apply a MIG welder or gas welding equipment. Stick arc welders are somewhat complicated to apply till now each thing yet are not incredibly ideal for welding autos because of the fact the steel is incredibly skinny and in many situations rusty. With certainly one of those you will possibly have difficulty getting the arc going and it would tend to maintain blowing holes interior the steel. do no longer ignore while you are going to do autos which you need to definately have hearth extinguishers and water handy------Why does glass break?There are a few reasons. Glass is brittle. Glass is brittle because it does not have good large-area orderly crystalline structure. If it did, it would be like sheet metal steel, where it dents and deforms instead of shattering. Secondly, glass breaks due to heat Applying a temperature change to one side of the glass causes expansion or contraction to occur. Because glass is not a good conductor, the glass does not expand or contract evenly across the pane. Because glass is brittle, the stress imparted causes it to break, shatter or explode.

The Ruger SR40c: the Most Dangerous Handgun on the Planet?
Kyle MizokamiSecurity, One of the more powerful compact pistols on the market, the Ruger SR40c combines a discrete size with the Smith & Wesson .40 caliber handgun cartridge. Invented by the Federal Bureau of Investigation after an infamous shootout, the cartridge is meant to provide additional power over more traditional medium handgun calibers.The 1986 Miami shootout was a watershed moment for law enforcement firepower. The incident pitched two criminals armed with a rifle and shotgun against FBI agents with service firearms. The gun battle, for which the agents were unprepared, was an extended one which saw 140 rounds by both sides. Both criminals were killed, but at the cost of many lives. Two FBI agents died and four other people were wounded during the gun battle. The two criminals were repeatedly struck by bullets but fought on despite their injuries.The incident prompted a call for the FBI to adopt a new medium weight pistol caliber with greater energy than the nine millimeter round then used by the bureau. The FBI rushed to adopt the 10 millimeter (.40 caliber) Norma cartridge but then transitioned to the .40 Smith & Wesson round. The .40 S&W round gradually became the go-to cartridge for law enforcement, with up to seventy percent of police and sheriff’s agencies using it over the nine millimeter round.The Ruger SR40c is one of many semi-automatic handguns using the .40 S&W round. The SR40c is the SR9 handgun adopted to the compact size category and modified to carry the .40 caliber round. The gun is 6.85 inches overall with a barrel length of 3.5—about average for its compact contemporaries. The barrel has six grooves and a 1:16 right-hand twist for stabilizing popular .40 loads. It has an overall height of 6.81 inches and measures a slim 1.27 inches wide.The SR40c is a recoil operated, locked breech handgun. It features a double stack magazine carrying fifteen rounds of .40 S&W ammunition, plus an additional round in the breech for a total of sixteen rounds. Aiming is via standard three dot sights, adjustable for elevation and windage, and both front and rear sights can be removed and replaced with aftermarket parts. It also has a built-in Weaver rail for attaching weapon lights and aiming lasers.The SR40c is a two-tone handgun, with a frame made of brushed satin stainless steel and a black glass-reinforced polymer frame. This results in a pistol that weighs just 23.4 ounces. The combination of lightweight, compact dimensions, and a dehorned exterior—that won’t get caught on clothing while being drawn—results in a handgun that strongly lends itself to carry.Ruger’s compact .40 pistol comes with two magazines, one nine-round magazine that sits flush with the grip for carrying purposes and a larger fifteen-round magazine that makes the pistol almost as tall as the full-size version. In states that have enacted high capacity magazine bans it ships with two nine-round magazines. The magazines are made of steel, making them long-lasting and resistant to deformation.The SR40c has several features to ensure safe operation. The pistol includes a firing pin block safety to prevent accidental discharge if dropped, and a magazine disconnector that prevents it from firing if a magazine is not inserted in the mag well. It also features, like a Glock handgun, a trigger safety. Going one step beyond Glock—and like many Ruger handguns—it also has an ambidextrous manual thumb safety.Ruger’s .40 caliber handgun is also left-handed shooter friendly, with ambidextrous magazine releases and thumb safeties. Rather than include backstraps of separate sizes, the SR40c has a single reversible backstrap for hands of different sizes. The pistol’s ergonomic features are rounded out by aggressive slide serrations for a positive grip when racking a round.The SR40c is a capable handgun backed by the .40 S&W round, making it one of the most powerful concealed carry handguns available today. For those gun owners that feel the need for a compact handgun in a caliber greater than nine millimeter, the SR40c delivers.Kyle Mizokami is a defense and national-security writer based in San Francisco who has appeared in the Diplomat, Foreign Policy, War is Boring and the Daily Beast.

India's First Manned Submersible: Studying the Sea: India
CHENNAI: At a time when India has successfully launched its heaviest rocket-GSLV-Mk3- capable of carrying humans to space, work has begun on building a vehicle to take man deep into the ocean. A team of scientists at ESSO-National Institute of Ocean Technology (NIOT) is ready with a preliminary design for the country’s first manned submersible that can accommodate a three-member crew. Expected to be ready in five years at a cost of Rs 500 crore, it will be able to take scientists about six kilometres deep into the ocean to look for precious metals and lesser known life forms. Once the vehicle is ready, India will join an elite group of nations sending man underwater in a craft. At present, only China, US, Russia, France and Japan have conducted manned deep-sea expeditions. NIOT director Satheesh Shenoi said the organisation submitted a proposal to the government and was awaiting approval. "Once we get the nod, an expert committee with members from scientific institutions like ISRO, DRDO and IIT will review and fine tune the design," said Shenoi. According to the design, the craft will be lowered into the sea from a ship. The crew, lying prostrate, in a 3.2 diameter titanium sphere, will be able to perform their task underwater for eight to 10 hours. A robotic arm will help them collect samples from the seafloor while they get a clear view through a glass pane. At present, India is conducting explorations for polymetallic nodules and polymetallic sulphides in certain regions of Indian Ocean on contract with the International Seabed Authority as part of the Deep Sea Mission launched by the Union ministry. The submersible is also part of the mission. "It is difficult to remotely operate unmanned vehicles to collect samples from small chimneys venting sulphides deep in the ocean. Manned submersibles will make the exploration less complex," Shenoi said. But before a bigger mission is executed, scientists are planning to make a similar looking spherical submersible in the next three years and send people about 500 m deep into the Indian Ocean. The smaller vessel will give scientists confidence and the required experience to get the final model ready. "Bharat Heavy Electricals Limited in Trichy has experience in making stainless steel vessels but not of the dimension we have planned. We are still debating on the material to be used and are looking for companies that can fabricate it here. We may also get from abroad. Once the sphere is ready, we are planning to make other components indigenously," Shenoi said. Indigenously making a submersible out of titanium — a metal that can withstand high water pressure —is a challenge. "We are in discussions with ISRO too as many aspects of the vessel are similar to a spacecraft," he added. Read this story in GujaratiDownload The Times of India News App for Latest City .
A Symphony in Stainless Steel
After almost 40 years, the Los Angeles Philharmonic is performing its very last concerts in Dorothy Chandler Pavilion. In the fall, the orchestra moves across the street, into a brand new home. The Walt Disney Concert Hall has been 15 years in the making, at a final cost of some $274 million. It's designed by one of the most acclaimed contemporary architects. NPR's Susan Stamberg went to downtown Los Angeles for a hard-hat tour of the new building."This just might be one of the great American buildings -- right up there with the Chrysler Building in New York, and Frank Lloyd Wright's Falling Water in Pennsylvania," Stamberg reports for Morning Edition Disney Hall is designed by Frank Gehry, who got so much attention for his Guggenheim Museum, in Bilbao, Spain. "The Bilbao museum is clad in titanium -- a billowing swoop of gold and sunset colors. Gehry's Los Angeles concert hall is swooping, too. But the L.A. swoops are silver," Stamberg says."We selected a different finish so it would stand apart," Gehry explains.The building features stainless steel "just one-sixteenth of an inch thick -- curving and sailing in waves to form two towers, an entry way, the auditorium," Stamberg says. "In the sun, the stainless turns pewter, then greige, with a smudge of blue. In clouds, the steel goes flat -- to matte gray. It's like a fine old black and white photograph -- or an Astaire and Rogers movie. A soaring swirl of a building -- not a straight line in sight -- occupying a full city block smack in the center of L.A.'s dull downtown skyscrapers." The new building stands in "not a particularly beautiful part of the city -- actually a very tough gritty urban part of the city," says Nicolai Ouroussoff, architecture critic for The Los Angeles Times . He calls the concert hall "sexy," adding that "nothing in this country looks like that. No, nothing." L.A. Philharmonic conductor Esa-Pekka Salonen can only imagine what the auditorium will sound like. The orchestra won't start rehearsing there until the end of June. But Stamberg says, "the final sound remains a mystery until the official opening in late October -- and it will take months of adjustments before the sound is fully set." Still Salonen and Gehry just couldn't wait to hear the music. One day, the conductor asked principal violinist Martin Chalifour to play his instrument inside the half-completed auditorium (the seats weren't even installed and there was a hole where the stage should be).Chalifour was so excited he didn't even want to tune his violin. He just launched into Bach.Gehry says that as he sat with Salonen in the back of the auditorium, "I grabbed his hand and the first notes we started crying."
Seven Native Teens Dead Or Missing While Away at School
THUNDER BAY—Grade 9 student Jordan Wabasse vanished Feb. 7 after getting off a city bus, just a block from his boarding house but hundreds of kilometres from home.“We have no idea what happened,” says Derek Jacob, who does not believe his son has run away.Wabasse, 15, is one of seven native teens to have disappeared from the Thunder Bay area since 2000. All had come from remote northern reserves to attend high school because there was no suitable school for them back home.A provincial coroner’s inquest into the October 2007 drowning of 15-year-old Reggie Bushie, which was scheduled for June 2009, has been delayed indefinitely because of legal arguments. The inquest into his death and the four students who died before him was also to have looked at the effects of removing native children from their home to send them away to school.“These are 14- and 15-year-olds trying to manage on their own,” says Nishnawbe-Aski Nation Grand Chief Stan Beardy. “They are just kids.”In Canada, native education is a federal responsibility and funding to the schools has simply not kept up, says National Chief of the Assembly of First Nations, Shawn Atleo. Some schools are missing science labs, libraries, computers, or, there isn’t a school at all and children are sent away.On average, a child going to school on a reserve is funded at $2,000 less per year than a child going to school in a neighbouring community, Atleo says. “There is a basic and fundamental inequity here,” Atleo says. “It denies our children what every other child in Canada has.”Since Bushie’s death, Kyle Morrisseau, the grandson of famed Ojibway artist Norval Morrisseau was found dead in the McIntyre River floodway, Wabasse disappeared, and three of the other teens were eventually found drowned in the waters that feed into Lake Superior.Robyn Harper died of asphyxiation in an alleged alcohol-related death. She was the only one not found in water. It is unclear of the circumstances that lead up to the deaths of most of the teens.Six of the dead natives were students at Dennis Franklin Cromarty High School, which is administered by the Northern Nishnawbe Education Council and funded by the federal government.Nearly 100 kids go to school here. Each has left their home in the Sioux Lookout area, hundreds of kilometres away, to board with other families. “The kids who come to Thunder Bay do not come by choice,” says principal Jonathan Kakegamic. “They come to further their education. For our people in Sioux Lookout, you need to leave.”Dennis Franklin Cromarty High School first opened in 2000 and since then, the loss of six students — Jethro Anderson, Paul Panacheese, Curran Strang, Harper, Bushie and Morrisseau — is palpable. (Wabasse attended the Matawa Learning Centre.) “It’s awful,” says vice-principal Sharon Angeconeb. “Everyday we thought they would come back.”Teacher Greg Quachegan, who taught Curran and Panacheese, still finds it painful to stare at their desks.When the kids come to Thunder Bay they are not used to being in a city, they are homesick with free time and often no money, he says. Students can be targets of easy targets for native gangs. “Students get harassed for not joining,” he says. “They get homesick. They miss traditional foods — wild meat. A lot don’t have money.”Conscious of the loneliness, DFC teachers act as surrogate parents, says Angeconeb.Native art hangs throughout the school and large murals painted by the students adorn the walls. There is an elder on site all day. She occupies a comfortable room that always has tea brewed and bannock at hand. DFC provides breakfast and lunch for the kids as many come to school hungry. “We tell all our staff they have to be committed, they need to come for the students,” she says. “We are their moms and dads. Our school work doesn’t end when the bell rings.”To that end, some of the staff are on call 24 hours a day in a unique after-hours program. They patrol the streets in a van, searching popular hangouts including the river banks, after school until the wee hours of the morning looking for wayward kids. “When you send a 14-year-old to high school — hundreds of them — logic dictates there will be accidents,” says Kakegamic.Wabasse was from Webequie First Nations, a growing community 500 kilometres north of Thunder Bay. With a birthrate three times higher than the national average, First Nations communities are teeming with children and Webequie is no different. Sadly, many are born into lives of poverty and despair. The unemployment rate at Webequie hovers at 95 per cent even though the reserve’s traditional lands sit on what international mining companies are calling the Ring of Fire — a potentially $30 billion deposit of chromite, the mineral used to make stainless steel.Wabasse, a talented hockey player, longed to play with other boys in a more organized league and at a real hockey rink, says his dad, Derek Jacob. Jordan begged to go to Thunder Bay to school. The Jacobs thought he could have a better education in the city and let him go.This was Wabasse’s first time alone in the city.On Tuesday, Feb. 8, the Thunder Bay boarding house where Wabasse was staying called his parents to say he didn’t come home the night before.Since then Wabasse’s parents, Derek and Bernice Jacob, have lived a nightmare. With the support of their band, an outpouring of donations from northern First Nations and even Jordan’s hockey team the Current River Comets, a command centre was set up in an old Canadian Red Cross building downtown.It has been more than 71 days since he went missing yet the volunteers — many from neighbouring northern bands with experience in tracking — keep coming. Nearly 60 people a day are fed lunch, dinner and sometimes breakfast.On March 21 volunteers found a sneaker believed to belong to Jordan on the shores of the Kaministiquia. Police divers using sonar equipment have scoured the river twice but have found no trace of the shy teen.Two weeks ago, Thunder Bay police announced DNA tests prove the Maple Leafs hat found offshore by searchers is Wabasse’s.Footprints were also found by the shoreline, says Thunder Bay Police Services executive officer Chris Adams.“In the absence of not finding Jordan, we can’t rule out foul play,” he says.Native educator Cindy Blackstock says it will take a “million man march”— reminiscent of U.S. civil rights activist Martin Luther King Jr. — to raise awareness of education inequities.Governments, provincial and federal, build two bridges for children, she says. “One for non-aboriginal children that goes from one side of a rapid river to another side,” she says. “Most children are able to safely cross to a possibility of opportunity and life.“And then governments build a bridge for First Nations children but it only goes halfway over the rapids. And when the children fall into the rapids and First Nations children and their families are screaming, the province of Ontario and the federal government say to First Nations, ‘Aren’t you thankful for the half of a bridge we built?’ ”The federal department of Indian and Northern Affairs would not comment on this story. Instead, they referred calls back to the aboriginal authority in charge of DFC.
