Utilizing Air Conditioning Salt Lake City

Boostability

I grew up in the northern European country of Norway. The area of Norway in which I grew up in, is located in an area where it snows pretty much year round. There are cities that are close by that have mild summers and we were able to get a taste of the summer sunshine that most of the rest of the world gets to experience. In some summer months, we would even be able to take swimming trips, and it was truly wonderful. In my last year at the university, I was able to study abroad in the United States. I had been taught English throughout my younger years, so studying abroad was something that I was excited about and comfortable with.

It just so happened that while studying at the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor, Michigan, I met my future husband. I had not intended on staying in the United States, but after our engagement, we decided upon staying in the U.S. for a while, as my husband already had a career path planned out. I was supportive of this and definitely willing to work around his plans, as I had none of my own quite yet. My husband was offered a wonderful opportunity in the city of Salt Lake City, Utah. I, obviously, had never been there, but I had heard of it many times, as the winter Olympics had occurred there in the past. I was excited for all of the changes to come. While we moved to Salt Lake City in the month of May, I already felt insanely happy with the warmth. I had imagined Salt Lake City to be something like Norway, but I had it all wrong. While the winter months are filled with snow, it seemed the summer months were warm and sunny. We arrived at our new home near the mountains, and I was very excited for this new life. However, due to my body being used to cold weather, I realized that the heat would ultimately be too much for me. Our home did not have an air conditioner, and despite my unfamiliarity with them, I knew that is exactly what we were going to need for the summer. I decided to look online for air conditioning Salt Lake City. Upon searching air conditioning Salt Lake City, I found that there were a variety of businesses that specialized in installing them. I read that there were air conditioning Salt Lake City businesses that installed window air conditioners, as well as air conditioning Salt Lake City businesses that installed central air conditioning systems. After doing further research, I realized we needed a central air conditioning system to make our house a comfortable temperature at all times. I read many reviews and ratings of different companies in the area, and decided upon the highest regarded. This company was actually able to come to our home the following day, and set up our air conditioning system in a few short hours while we were away at work. When I returned home that evening, I noticed a huge difference in the temperature of the home. After reading the instructions, I realized that this air conditioning system was installed so that it was on a timer to turn on when we returned home at the end of the day, and also adjusted when we usually went to bed in the evening. In this way, it was extremely efficient, and I was overly pleased with this choice. I would recommend this service and this installment to anyone who lives in an area where the temperature differs year-round, as I am more comfortable now than ever!

MT duo & Robot Taiwan 2008: Vast opportunities for machinery industry

Filed in Uncategorized Leave a comment

Friday, May 2, 2008

The 2008 Taipei CNC Machine Tools & Manufacturing Technology Show (MT duo) and Taiwan International Robot Exhibition (Robot Taiwan 2008) both began yesterday. These events are both taking place in the build up to Taipei International Machine Tool Show (TIMTOS 2009) at TWTC Nangang, which is due to take place next year.

The 2008 MT duo and Robot Taiwan mainly focused on software designed for industry, rather than consumers. This is in contrast to the choice of software displayed in many Japanese Trade Shows, which often displays products designed for consumers.

Robotics is a major industry in Taiwan. As a result the organizer of the event decided to refine “Manufacturing Taipei” and split it into the “Robot & Industrial Automation” of Manufacturing Taipei and “Robot Taiwan”.

There was also a “Taiwan International Robotics Forum” and “Seminars on MT duo” at the event. Both were designed to attract executives from IT, manufacturing, and machinery industries to promote the worldwide use of robotics in industry.

Ali Akbar Salehi, chief of Iran’s Atomic Energy Agency, announced Friday that Iran is scheduled to launch its first nuclear power plant in Bushehr. Russia said that it will start loading fuel into the reactor on August 21, 2010.

Russia has assisted Iran in the construction of this reactor since the mid-1990s. The proposal to build this reactor was put forth 35 years ago by Mohammad Rez? Sh?h Pahlavi, the former emperor of Iran.

Dmitry Anatolyevich Medvedev, the current president of Russia, said that Iran and Russia are in active trade partnership. Medvedev called on Iran last month to explain its nuclear program.

The official launch is scheduled for August 21, 2010. Russia has promised to run the plant by supplying fuel and taking away fuel waste.

Wednesday, April 9, 2008

Five years after its launch, Apple Computer‘s iTunes downloadable music service in February passed Wal-Mart to become the No. 1 music seller in the United States, according to figures released April 3 by NPD Group, a market research firm.

The firm said more than 4 billion songs had been downloaded from the iTunes store since its launch in 2003 and that as of February, the iTunes store accounts for 70% of all digital music sales. NPD said according to those figures, Apple’s iTunes store passes U.S. electronics retailer Best Buy for the No. 2 U.S. music retailer in 2007.

According to an April 2nd report in Ars Technica, an internal memo at Apple showed the company passed Wal-Mart as the top U.S. music seller Wal-Mart at the beginning of the year. Their projections showed that as of January 2008, Apple’s iTunes held 19 percent of the U.S. music market with Wal-Mart at 15 percent, followed by Best Buy at 13 percent. Rounding out the top five were Amazon.com and Target at 6 percent each.

There are 2 hydraulic winch types of weriline unit:

1. Open loop

2. Close loop

The Winch unit will be powered by the power-pack on separate skid. Hydraulic winch power is supplied by connecting the power-pack to the wireline unit using hydraulic hose and quick coupling union.

Hydraulic oil passed from the reservoir tank through a suction strainer mounted inside the tank, to the hydraulic pump which driven by the diesel engine. On leaving the pump under pressure, the oil passes through a tee connection which exposes the pressure to the pressure control relief valve. The valve is set to open at 2,400 psig.

The minimum pressure signal for this valve can be overridden by the pilot relief valve to adjust the maximum system pressure to any valve less than 2,400 psig. The operating pressure of the system can be read on the pressure gauge. From the pressure relief valve the oil proceeds to the 4-way valve directional controls the directional control valve and then to the motor. The 4-way valve controls direction of rotation of the drum. When the handle is pulled toward the operator, the drum rotates toward him, when the handle is pushed away from the operator, the drum rotates away from him. When the valve is in the neutral position, oil flow directly to return line.

Gearbox oil proceeds to the cooler, gearbox filters and back to the reservoir tank.

Types of wire used in workover and completion operation are “Slick line”, “Braided line”, and “Conductor line”. “Slickline”, that is, single strand wire of 0.066″ up to 0.125″ diameter is carried on a single drum winch unit or double drum winch unit.

Since from the beginning of time, man has been using machinery and tools to improve his quality of life and perfecting work efficiency. We are the only species on earth with the intelligence to design and implement tools that are able to assist us in our daily tasks. Over the past generations, technological advancements have improved the tools we use today, and have continuously revolutionized industries through each generation, in particular those of the past 150 years. The hydraulics industry in particular can be credited with significantly impacting and changing the face of human machinery forever. Hydraulic systems are tools and machines that rely heavily on high pressure liquid power to fulfill its functions. The state of purity of this liquid is crucial to be able to perform its purpose, which means the hydraulics liquid has to be run through an oil distillation system to filter out any impurities.

Wide varieties of cylinders and motors will transfer this hydraulic liquid by means of control valves, hoses and tubes to the cylinders and motors. A lot of machinery used to perform important functions in our everyday use makes use of hydraulics in their function. Bulldozers, which are classified as crawlers, move making use of rigid plates joined to each other set on wheels, using continuous tracks. The purpose of this continual track movement is to allocate the mass of the machine over a much larger surface than mere wheels would be able to dispense. The bulldozer comes equipped with a ‘dozer blade’. Even though a bulldozer is the term assigned to various types of machinery, the correct use of the term is only to describe a tractor with a dozer blade.

This blade is utilized in moving debris, sand and soil, especially in construction work. In the first bulldozers, its blade was controlled by a brake, or winch system. They are now fitted with hydraulic cylinders, allowing much more exactitude in the blade’s operation. Another piece of machinery which uses hydraulics in its function is a backhoe. It is a kind of excavating tool commonly referred to as a digger. In essence it is a tractor, fitted with an articulated arm with a digging bucket at the end, used in excavation scenarios. The arm which is closest to the vehicle is referred to as a boom, and the other part of the arm is the dipper. The bucket and the arm are powered by sophisticated and highly developed hydraulics that allow for accurate movement.

Forklifts are powered by hydraulic systems as well. Such machines are powered by industrial trucks which are used in the lifting and transporting of heavy materials, especially moving and lifting pallets in warehouses and stock distribution centers. The mast of the forklift is what performs most of the work in raising and lowering the loads. It is obvious that hydraulics are used in our daily lives, even if we don’t see it in our every day.

Study says poor African American women less likely to receive pap smears

Filed in Uncategorized Leave a comment

Wednesday, December 28, 2005Black American women living in communities with high poverty rates are significantly less likely to be screened for cervical cancer, a study finds.

The Harvard School of Public Health’s Geetanjali Dabral Datta investigated the relationship between individual characteristics and larger socioeconomic factors and cervical cancer screening rates. The Febreuary 1 issue of Cancer carries the study. More than 40,000 black women from across the United States participated in the Black Women’s Health Study.

“African-American women have twice the mortality rate from cervical cancer as white women,” said Elizabeth Ward, the director of the American Cancer Society. “Researchers need to investigate how those differences are related to socioeconomic status. One of the big factors that may account for this finding is access to high-quality medical care. Often communities that have high poverty rates either lack access to good quality care, or people have to travel longer distances to obtain high-quality care.”

David L. Katz at Yale University’s School of Medicine said; “While this finding is not surprising, it is noteworthy just the same. No one should die of cervical cancer, because a simple screening test reliably finds the condition in its earliest stages when cure is almost universally achievable. Yet, several thousand deaths from this cancer occur each year in the U.S.”

Colleges offering admission to displaced New Orleans students/International

Filed in Uncategorized Leave a comment

See the discussion page for instructions on adding schools to this list and for an alphabetically arranged listing of schools.

Due to the damage by Hurricane Katrina and subsequent flooding, a number of colleges and universities in the New Orleans metropolitan area will not be able to hold classes for the fall 2005 semester. It is estimated that 75,000 to 100,000 students have been displaced. [1]. In response, institutions across the United States and Canada are offering late registration for displaced students so that their academic progress is not unduly delayed. Some are offering free or reduced admission to displaced students. At some universities, especially state universities, this offer is limited to residents of the area.

Hydrogen fuel cell cars promoted in various states, but U.S. federal funding cut

Filed in Uncategorized Leave a comment

Tuesday, June 2, 2009

American Secretary of Energy Steven Chu is cutting US$100 million dollars from hydrogen fuel cell vehicle research and diverting the remaining $69 million to hydrogen fuel cell research for household current.

Former president George W. Bush advocated the zero-emission vehicles and launched $1.2 billion for hydrogen fuel cell research over a number of years.

President Barack Obama is proposing a “corporate average fuel economy,” or CAFÉ, placing standards for gas mileage at 39 miles per gallon for cars and light trucks at 30 mpg.

“The probability of deploying hydrogen-fuel-cell vehicles in the next 10 to 20 years is low.” said Tom Welch of the U.S. Department of Energy. “We asked ourselves, ‘Is it likely in the next 10 or 15, 20 years that we will convert to a hydrogen car economy?’ The answer, we felt, was ‘no,'” said Chu.

In response, the U.S. Fuel Cell Council and the National Hydrogen Association said, “The cuts proposed in the DOE hydrogen and fuel-cell program threaten to disrupt commercialization of a family of technologies that are showing exceptional promise and beginning to gain market traction. Fuel-cell vehicles are not a science experiment. These are real vehicles with real marketability and real benefits. Hundreds of fuel-cell vehicles have collectively logged millions of miles.”

“I just got the Clarity, which is a wonderful hydrogen vehicle,” said Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger. He lent his car to The Hydrogen Road Tour.

On Tuesday, The Hydrogen Road Tour began in Chula Vista, California. Twelve hydrogen fuel cell cars by seven auto makers will arrive in Vancouver, British Columbia June 3 for the Hydrogen + Fuel Cells 2009 conference, a global hydrogen and fuel cell event. “The point really is to raise awareness about fuel celled vehicles and hydrogen, their benefits both to energy efficiency and the environment as well as to consumers because we really believe these vehicles are going to be a market winner,” said Catherine Dunwoody, the Executive Director of the California Fuel Cell Partnership.

The Hydrogen Fuel Cells 2009 conference began June 1. “Our global environmental challenges, such as climate change, do not stop at the border,” ” said John Tak, conference Chair, “I am pleased that scientists, engineers, government representatives and businesspeople from more than 35 countries are coming to Vancouver, an active hub for hydrogen and fuel cell development, to help create solutions to these challenges.”

The Ohio Fuel Cell Symposium was held in North Canton, Ohio on Wednesday and Thursday. “The hydrogen and fuel cell industries are at a stage where they have the momentum and energy to accomplish some truly revolutionary things in terms of how they apply their technologies,” said William Whittenberger, president of Catacel Corp. These fuel cells produce electricity and exhaust carbon dioxide and water.

A hydrogen powered municipal street cleaning vehicle is currently being tested for the next year and half in Basel, Switzerland. “Our aim is to take fuel cell technology from the laboratory onto the street,” said Empa’s Internal Combustion Engines Laboratory Project Leader Christian Bach.

Dan Lutz, the fleet manager for the Beloit, Wisconsin public works department, experimented with retro-fitting his personal truck. The department now has a large pickup truck, a garbage truck, a recycling truck, a police squad car and a small pickup truck using hydrogen technology increasing gas mileage from 14 to 22 and 31 mpg. “We know the basic technology works, but the issue is, is it practical,” said City Manager Larry Arft, “Can it be used realistically?”

The drawback is that the technology may rely on platinum, a rare metal, or palladium. Infrastructure would need to be changed to supply hydrogen fueling stations. Critics are also concerned about hydrogen fuel storage and the costs of retro-fitting existing vehicles.

Baby in California born with 12 functioning fingers and toes, in a rare case of polydactylism

Filed in Uncategorized Leave a comment

Tuesday, February 3, 2009

A six-pound infant born in San Francisco, California has six perfectly formed and functional fingers and toes on his hands and feet, so that it isn’t considered a disability or deformity, say doctors at Saint Luke’s Hospital who were amazed by the oddity.

In a medical rarity, super baby Kamani Hubbard was born two weeks ago with 24 working digits. He is healthy and home with his parents in Daly City, California. Polydactyly, a congenital disorder is not uncommon in humans and animals, including cats, but to happen on both hands and feet is a rare hereditary condition.

“Nurses and doctors, looked so normal they couldn’t tell, they told me he was six pounds in good health, that was all they said,” said Miryoki Gross, Hubbard’s mother. Her baby’s specialness didn’t even show up on prenatal ultrasounds. “I heard nothing before I gave birth so I’m still in shock, kinda,” Gross added. Despite the mother’s shock, Kamani’s father, Kris, was the first to notice the condition.

Polydactyly (from Ancient Greek means ‘?????’ (polus) or “many” + ‘????????’ (daktulos) “finger[s]”), also known as polydactylism, sexdactyly, hexadactyly, or hexadactylism, is a congenital physical disorder consisting of supernumerary fingers or toes.

In Kamani’s case, however, all of the digits are perfectly formed and function or work normally. “I was in amazement, it took a little time for me to take it all in,” said Kris, a postal worker, who has a family history of polydactylism, but none of his relatives can remember it happening on both hands and feet.

Mostly, cases of polydactyly are surgically corrected. Kris himself had nubs of sixth digits, which were removed during his early childhood, for having been non-functional. “My son has six fingers then I saw toes, and I thought, this is quite unique. Some family members have had six fingers, not completely developed. But not the toes,” Kris noted.

“I would be tempted to leave those fingers in place. I realize children would tease each other over the slightest things, and having extra digits on each hand is more than slight. But imagine what sort of a pianist a 12-fingered person would be imagine what sort of a flamenco guitarist, if nothing else think of their typing skills,” Dr. Treece remarked.

“I just want him to see what greatness will be in store for him,” said Kris.

Fully developed and functional extra digits on both hands and feet are considered very rare as a genetic trait in medical history, amid some partial development of an extra digit occurs about twice in every 1,000 white male births. Ordinarily, polydactylism appears as an extra piece of non-functional tissue, typically occurring as an extra finger, sometimes with a bone, but no joint.

“It’s merely an interesting and beautiful variation rather than a worrisome thing,” said Dr. Michael Treece, a St. Luke’s Hospital pediatrician, and the OBGYN who delivered Kamani. He has postaxial polydactyly, which is 10 times more likely to occur in black children, and also more likely to appear in boys.

Goliath, a figure in Old Testament, was depicted as having had six fingers on each hand and six toes on each foot.

Blues guitarist Hound Dog Taylor, Get Carter, Little Tich, Toyotomi Hideyoshi and several other figures in history have had polydactyly. Sid Wilson, a turntablist of Slipknot, had been born with an extra finger and toe on his hands and feet which were removed shortly after his birth as doctors considered them to be dead.

The Opportunities In Construction Jobs Abroad

Filed in Quantity Surveyors Leave a comment

By Duncan Freer

The Construction Industry operates on a global scale with many opportunities to work abroad. The developed world maintains many types of project, including continuation, decommissioning and environmental work, much of which is implemented by some of the industry’s leading companies, who are diversifying into new markets. Factors such as tourism and the continuing rise in the global population have increased the demand for housing, commercial buildings, high-rise constructions, industrial processing plants and new and improved transport infrastructures.

New markets are arising in countries with unused natural resources. Countries such as South Africa, South America and Russia are providing budding opportunities in this area, whilst countries in the Middle East, such as Saudi Arabia and Dubai are plowing billions of pounds worth of investment into housing, hospitals as well as residential and tourist developments. Other industries are having a positive effect on the construction industry; India has achieved an almost overnight success within its IT sector. As outsourcing and the off-shoring of international business have grown in conjunction with the development of this IT industry so, too, has the demand for commercial, residential and retail constructions. China is also offering substantial opportunities for jobs in construction as its changing infrastructure demands new housing and power developments.

UK qualifications are well-respected worldwide by construction recruitment organizations, offering British workers considerable opportunities to work overseas. Whilst overseas project tend to favour more experienced graduates, many multinational companies will readily take on more-recently qualified graduates into their ranks. Contracts overseas can mean long periods of time away from the UK and, in some cases, working longer hours than UK contracts stipulate. However, in these circumstances, many companies offer employees additional pay allowances and extra money to assist the costs of intermittent flights back to Britain. Many consider this to be a career for single people, as the long periods away from home and the frequent lack of facilities to cope with dependants often take a toll on married couples or those in relationships.

Construction jobs overseas require a variety of employees with a variety of skills, such as site managers, site engineers, plant engineers, electricians, quantity surveyors, structural engineers, store managers, finance personnel, personnel managers, catering staff and procurement managers. Working abroad can also present language and cultural challenges, whilst trying to oversee a large build, but this leaves extra room for graduates to use their qualifications to their best advantage.

Of course, British engineers and specialists are not confined to finding construction jobs overseas; with the advent of the 2012 Olympics in the UK. Since 2006, the Olympic Committee has been sourcing the best candidates for the required builds and competition between companies is fierce for the relevant contracts. As the Games approach, there will be more and more opportunities for qualified candidates to consider making their mark on British soil, as well as taking into account the benefits offered by working overseas. The Olympics are being heralded as a showcase for the talents of UK construction companies, which is hoped to generate further work abroad.
