Millionaire Mind – Win the Lottery – Luck OR Law of Attraction?

It is time to stop being so serious and have some fun with the universal Law of Attraction, also known as the Law of Belief.

In simple words, this Law states that “you get exactly what you believe”, “it is done unto you as you believe”, “be it done unto you according to your faith”, “your deeply held beliefs are materializing your reality”.”you materialize on all planes the subconscious beliefs held in your subconscious mind”.

Let’s see if we can share some light on this Law and winning the Lottery.

(1) Some state there is no such thing as LUCK. That is their BELIEF. These people have no luck at all.

(2) Others keep repeating this sentence preached by so many gurus and so called experts: “Luck is the intersection of preparation and opportunity”. These are the ones who want to impress people with the HARD WORK they NEED to perform

in order to achieve their goals. They glorify working real hard, struggling against all odds, and all that NONSENSE. They just don’t know any better. The idea of things being EASY and even FUN never crosses their minds. Their BELIEF is that they must work real hard for anything they achieve.

(3) Then, there are those who are just plain LUCKY. They keep winning in contests, bingo games, raffles. They always get parking spaces right in front of the places they want to go to. Happy events keep materializing in their lives without them really making any efforts whatsoever. People who know them keep commenting on how LUCKY they are. That reinforces their beliefs that they are LUCKY. And they keep getting LUCKIER by the day.

If you analyze those three examples, they all have ONE common factor: BELIEF.

The first group BELIEVES there is no such thing as LUCK. And that is exactly what they get: NO luck.

The second group BELIEVES that by preparing themselves opportunities will appear. They prepare themselves because they BELIEVE opportunities will appear to those who are ready and prepared. And these opportunities DO appear as they BELIEVE.

The third group BELIEVES they are lucky. Therefore, they BELIEVE good things happen to them all the time. And they do happen since that is what they BELIEVE.

Interesting, they are all getting results according to their BELIEFS. That looks TOO MUCH like the universal Law of Attraction, also known as the Law of Belief, at work — giving each group what each group BELIEVES.

Changing focus a bit, this is a true story about a fellow I know. I caught him once sitting in front of his TV checking the winning lottery numbers. He kept always saying that he would make millions winning the Lottery.

A friend of his decided to have some fun and asked him “John,

I always hear you saying there are only three ways to make lots of money. Refresh my mind. What are they?”

John replied, “You can make lots of money by (1) inheritance, (2) having your own …

Deaerator Working Principles and Deaerator Types

The Deaeration Principle

Today a deaerator is an essential part of a steam system. Corrosion in boiler cycles is caused mainly by the presence of non-condensable gasses such as oxygen and carbon dioxide, or by a low pH value. While the pH is raised by the addition of chemicals, it is more economical to remove non-condensable gasses mechanically. This mechanical process is known as Deaeration and its employment increases the life of a steam system dramatically.

Using Henry’s law of partial pressures, the principle behind Deaeration can be explained as follows: The quantity of a gas dissolved in a given quantity of liquid is directly proportional to its partial pressure surrounding the liquid. Therefore, by reducing the partial pressure of the unwanted gasses in the surrounding atmosphere, the gasses are diminished. These partial pressures are reduced by spraying the liquid into a countercurrent flow of steam. The steam, which is free of non-condensable gasses, is the liquid’s new atmosphere and Henry’s law prevails. Using steam is advantageous in that the solubility of a gas in a liquid decreases with an increase in the temperature of that liquid. The liquid is sprayed in thin films in order to increase the surface area of the liquid in contact with the steam, which, in turn, provides more rapid oxygen removal and lower gas concentrations.

With these principles in mind, Deaerator employs a two-stage system of heating and deaerating feedwater. This system reduces oxygen concentration to less than 0.007 ppm, and completely eliminates the carbon dioxide concentration when tested by the APHA method. Testing for oxygen concentration shall be done in accordance with ASME Performance Test Code 12.3. Other methods of testing may be used if mutually agreed upon by the parties involved.

Deaerator Operation – Stage One

The first stage of deaeration is shown in Figure I. The prime element in our vent condenser zone is the self-adjusting spray valve that allows incoming water, which is to be deaerated, to discharge as a thin-walled, hollow cone spray. Because steam flows countercurrent, intimate water to steam contact occurs with consequent latent heat transfer. As the falling water reaches the tray stack (tray type deaerator), or the collection basin (spray type deaerator), its temperature is within 2°F (1ºC) of the counter-flowing saturated steam temperature. Most of the dissolved oxygen and free carbon dioxide have been removed at this point. Since nearly all of the steam has been condensed, the non-condensable gasses and the small amount of “transport” steam exits through the vent piping.

Deaerator Operation – Stage Two

Tray Type Deaerator

The partially deaerated water enters the tray stack at saturation temperature. The heated water flows down over the trays, zigzagging through counter flow steam. This arrangement provides additional retention time to allow a final oxygen strip by the purest steam. The two-stage tray deaeration technique is the most reliable method for meeting critical performance over a complete load range.

Spray Type Deaerator

Water from the collection basin flows down the vertical down comer and …
