On-Train Hydrogen Storage Development Agreement

The title of this post, is the same as that of this article on Railway Gazette.

This is the first paragraph.

Alstom and automotive technology company Plastic Omnium have signed a memorandum of understanding to collaborate on ‘high-end’ hydrogen storage systems for on-train applications, with a dedicated team established to manage the technical and commercial development of ‘innovative and competitive’ equipment.

This sounds like hydrogen tanks will be efficiently designed and produced for trains and locomotives.

The designs for these important areas will probably lead to better hydrogen tanks for any application that needs one.

People With Coeliac Disease Are At Higher Risk For Cataracts

The title of this post is the same as that of this page on Ocli Vision.

This is a paragraph from the article.

In a recent study published by the American Journal of Epidemiology, researchers found that people who suffer from celiac disease are at a much higher risk of developing cataracts than those who are not diagnosed with the disease.

On Monday, Boots identified that my cataracts had got worse and signed me up to a private hospital that could do them free on the NHS.

It was an offer I couldn’t refuse.

RMT Calls New Strike Ballot On ScotRail

The title of this post, is the same as that of this article on RailNews.

This is the first paragraph.

The RMT has served notice of an industrial action ballot on ScotRail as the latest development in its long-running pay dispute. The union said that the schedule for the ballot would permit action to take place during COP26 if, as expected, its members voted yes. Over two thousand RMT members will be polled. A few days earlier nine out of 10 ScotRail ticket examiners had confirmed their backing for continued strikes. The law required another vote, because industrial action began six months ago.

Does the date of the strike, illustrate the RMT’s views on climate change and COP26.

An Unusual Find In My Food Cupboard

I found this can of Heinz Tomato Soup in my food cupboard.

What happened to it?

  • It looks like a half-eaten tin of meat.

I never usually buy tomato soup.
