What's the value of a single piece of customer, patient or research data? How about several billion pieces of that data? These 12 organizations, winners of the first-ever Data+ Editor's Choice Awards, were well aware that they sat on a goldmine of information. And each in its own way turned those massive data stores into solid business results. A top-tier healthcare organization added $62 million in new revenue to the bottom line. A world-renowned research organization gave its scientists a big step forward in helping to power the next generation of solar cells.

Chosen by a panel of Computerworld editors, these organizations are making better business decisions and, in some cases, generating new revenue streams and tapping into new markets.Huge collection of solar outdoor light and garden lighting fixtures. Read on for the other 10 successes as well as the new technologies that are driving the pace in the BI field.

Seeking a competitive edge in 50 hotly contested congressional races in 2012, the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee turned to Catalist, a Washington-based political consultancy that uses dynamic modeling of voter information to develop campaign strategies.

Catalist built the DCCC dynamic models that uploaded daily survey results and field information and combined it with existing data on 190 million registered voters and 90 million unregistered voters. It had 700 data elements on each person.A solar lamp is a portable light fixture composed of an LED lamp, a photovoltaic solar panel, and a rechargeable battery. Every night, highly tuned models for each race used that data to create action plans for the next day.

"It told them whose door to knock on," says Catalist COO Gayatri Bhalla. "We were able to figure out who is newly registered and where they fell on their partisanship score or their ideology score" -- metrics that are based on the history of donations people make to causes or candidates, petitions they have signed or online surveys they may have taken. By building rich profiles with that data, "we're able to predict with a high degree of accuracy which way a voter will lean," she says.

Catalist gets most of its 2 petabytes of data from the offices of secretaries of state around the country. It's allowed to access that information because "we do not serve a commercial enterprise, and we don't operate for profit," says Bhalla, explaining that many states prohibit the use of such data for commercial purposes.

Among other things, Catalist's analytical tools can "match" multiple names to a specific person. "We can figure out that Bobby Jones is the same as Robert Jones and Robert L. Jones, but different from Robert S. Jones," Bhalla explains.

In data analytics, it's important to remember that "not all data is created equal," says Bhalla. "You can have the best tools, but it's garbage in, garbage out."

The food pantry serves approximately 40 families and costs to run it hover at around $2,000 a month. About half of those funds are provided monthly by the Regional Food Bank of Northeastern New York. However, donations are needed to fill the gap. The pantry is finding it difficult to keep the shelves stocked because the economy and job market have not yet recovered and more families are relying on food pantries.

RMIT advances nanomaterials

03:32, 27/8/2013  ..  0 comments  ..  Link

The development of cheaper and less toxic solar cells using nanotechnology is the focus of a collaborative research project conducted by RMIT,We offer solar photovoltaic system and commercial incentives to encourage our customers to install solar energy systems. CSIRO and the Japan Science and Technology Agency.The team is investigating the synthesis of semi-conductor inorganic nanocrystals using low-cost and abundant elements for printable solar cell applications.The research was recently published in the high-impact Journal of the American Chemical Society.

The RMIT research team is led by Professor Yasuhiro Tachibana from RMIT’s School of Aerospace, Mechanical and Manufacturing Engineering."The focus of photovoltaic industries has been to reduce material and production costs for photovoltaic panels," Professor Tachibana said."As a result research into next generation solar cells has been of significant importance as it concentrates on developing novel low cost and low toxicity colloidal nanomaterials in order to meet industry requirements."

Colloidal nanocrystals can be used as an "ink", enabling solar cells to be quickly and cheaply fabricated with a printer.Currently, cadmium or lead elements dominate colloidal nanocrystals synthesis, despite toxicity concerns.The research team – which includes Dr Joel van Embden from the School of Aerospace, Mechanical and Manufacturing Engineering,A solar lamp is a portable light fixture composed of an LED lamp, a photovoltaic solar panel, and a rechargeable battery. and Professor Kay Latham from the School of Applied Sciences – has been exploring alternative elements to synthesise nanocrystals.Huge collection of solar outdoor light and garden lighting fixtures.

Dr van Embden said: "Synthesising entirely new nanocrystals was one of the most challenging tasks, since the initial reaction conditions are unknown."We have focused on incorporating the elements, copper and antimony, into nanocrystals, as they are low-cost, low-toxic and earth-abundant," he said.In its research, the team has discovered the novel selective synthesis of tetrahedrite and famatinite copper antimony sulphide (CAS) nanocrystals.

Both nanocrystals display a brown-blackish colour with strong absorptions of visible and near-infrared light, suitable as a light absorber in solar cells.The colloidal nanocrystal solutions (semiconductor nanocrystal inks) can readily be employed to prepare thin nanocrystal films.Soli-lite provides the world with high-performance solar roadway and solar street lighting solutions.
Professor Tachibana said nanocrystal films could be fabricated on an electrode and applied to photovoltaic devices, thin-film thermoelectrics and transistors at a comparatively low cost compared with other methods.The team has already confirmed electricity generation is possible from the nanocrystalline film under light.

Journal of the American Chemical Society, a weekly peer-reviewed scientific journal that publishes original research papers in all fields of chemistry, is the highest ranked journal in this field.They are called "solar" panels or solar module because most of the time, the most powerful source of light available is the Sun.
Professor Xinghuo Yu, Director of the RMIT Platform Technologies Research Institute, said the publication in the high-impact journal was an indication of the high standard of research conducted by the institute’s researchers."The institute brings together multi-disciplinary teams of academics to undertake high-impact industry-focused projects to solve complex research questions of national and global significance," Professor Yu said.

"The collaboration between the researchers at the School of Aerospace, Mechanical and Manufacturing Engineering and School of Applied Sciences has produced this successful outcome to benefit industry and the community."

These designs will help you

When disaster strikes, survival can depend on a few basic needs. Access to clean water, shelter, warmth and sanitation is a matter of life of death in the days and weeks after an earthquake, tsunami, flood or tornado.

With climate scientists predicting that natural disasters will increase in both frequency and intensity in the coming decades, many designers have turned their attention to how they can help to alleviate their impact. Their work includes a broad range of devices designed to save lives by helping rescue workers or giving people caught up in the aftermath of a natural disaster a way to help themselves.

Mikal Hallstrup, chairman of the INDEX: Award jury, said he and his fellow jury members were looking for ideas that could deliver real change. “We’re not a design award for designer chairs or more white teacups,” he told CNN. “The world simply doesn’t need more stuff, so our focus is on meaningfulness.They are called "solar" panels or solar module because most of the time, the most powerful source of light available is the Sun. … No matter how well designed a solution, we’re not after great design solving the wrong problems.”

He said that successful nominees would address a problem and present an affordable and scalable remedy. “New takes on old problems always get the jury excited,” he added. “So do simple solutions to complex problems.” And they don’t come much more complex or big than a natural disaster.

A personal ark

The Indian Ocean tsunami of 2004 was among the most devastating events of recent years. It led not only to increased interest and investment in early warning systems, but also to the development of personal survival devices for those in the path of an incoming tidal wave. Three of them are up for an INDEX: Award this year, including the Orange Saver, a stylish piece of furniture that unfurls into a life raft if the need arises. It’s kept afloat by eight separate inflatable segments so that it will still be buoyant even if one is damaged.

The Noah miniature ark takes up a little more room than the Orange Saver but its designers intend it for the “average Japanese home”. The bright yellow ball, four feet across, is made from fiber-reinforced plastic and will accommodate four adults. Once the hatch is sealed the pod is waterproof, buoyant and tough enough to fend of debris in the water. Vents in the roof allow in fresh air. The Noah is already in production and sells for about $5,500.

More robust still is the Tsunami Survival Pod built by Havana Houseboats in Australia, which is crush-resistant to a weight of more than 13,000 pounds. It can accommodate four adults strapped into racecar-style seats and with the door closed it’s completely sealed — it contains enough air for about two and a half hours before the occupants would have to open the doors.

Shelter from the storm

Finding safe, warm shelter is a priority for the victims of earthquakes and flooding. In these extreme circumstances, functionality normally outweighs aesthetics, but Marco di Piaggi’s Thin Skyscraper unites both. The Italian architect envisages a multi-storey building made from prefabricated sections of glass and steel, providing high-quality accommodation for hundreds of people while sitting on a site just 40 feet square. That’s a much more efficient use of space than conventional emergency housing and, unlike many other temporary shelters,Huge collection of solar outdoor light and garden lighting fixtures. it can be dismantled and reused over and over again.

A more down-to-earth solution comes in the form of the Next Generation Compressed Earth Brick which would provide the materials for solid, semi-permanent housing in the wake of a disaster. Compressed-earth buildings are already widely used, but the team behind this prototype propose to scale up the process to produce blocks four feet long, two feet deep and six inches wide. Mobile hydraulic presses could pump out the super-sized bricks at a rate of three per minute, the designers say — enough for two small houses every day.

Sometimes the simplest ideas are the smartest, and they don’t come much smarter than the Paklaot. Consisting of four metal parts, the kit converts a door or any other suitably shaped surface into a sturdy trolley for moving personal possessions out of the disaster zone or clearing away debris.

Let there be light . . . and water and power

Natural disasters often disrupt basic utilities such as gas, electricity and mains water, forcing people to live off the grid, sometimes for months. Drinking water is often the most acute need, and two INDEX nominees find it in very different places. The Moses gun punches a hole in domestic water tanks so that people can drink the water inside. Its Israeli designer says the solar heating systems used in homes in many parts of the world contain enough clean water to ensure a family’s survival for several days.

For longer-term use, or for those without access to solar tanks, the Eliodomestico distiller converts seawater into fresh drinking water. Intended for use in hot climates, the simple design works purely from the energy of the sun. A matte black boiler at the top of the terracotta urn absorbs heat, transferring it to the seawater and causing it to evaporate. Fresh water then condenses at the cool base of the unit, where it remains until it is needed. The Italian designer has built a prototype that delivered five liters of water per day in test conditions.

The sun is also the energy source behind the NOMAD solar lamp, whose 12 LED lights provide equivalent illumination to a 40-watt bulb. At maximum power,A solar lamp is a portable light fixture composed of an LED lamp, a photovoltaic solar panel, and a rechargeable battery. a six-hour charge provides six hours’ light, but the light can be dimmed to prolong battery life — at 15% power, a single charge will provide 35 hours of light. As well as providing emergency lighting, the NOMAD is designed to replace oil lamps in developing countries, where kerosene fires and fumes cause many injuries and deaths each year.Soli-lite provides the world with high-performance solar roadway and solar street lighting solutions.We offer solar photovoltaic system and commercial incentives to encourage our customers to install solar energy systems.

The periodic table of elements is iconic. It inspires scientists, poets and rock musicians. Mendeleev created it by arranging known chemical elements in increasing order of their atomic weights (atomic numbers are used now) and in rows and columns in such a way that elements in the same column had similar properties. As a student of Sanskrit, he may have been inspired by Panini who arranged Sanskrit letters in the same two-dimensional way to bring out their properties.We offer solar photovoltaic system and commercial incentives to encourage our customers to install solar energy systems. Mendeleev’s scheme worked so well that he turned a prophet and predicted 8 new elements, each with a Sanskrit prefix, and their properties. All came true. He became so revered that the Czar overlooked his bigamy,Soli-lite provides the world with high-performance solar roadway and solar street lighting solutions. saying “he has two wives, yes, but I have only one Mendeleev”. At one time the table had only 90 elements which were naturally occurring but now, elements are being created in the laboratory and recently element 119 was reported, starting a new row. The periodic table lives. Out of these, how do you pick the ones that changed the world?

Fermi and Szilard working on uranium at Columbia University knew that it would unleash enormous power. Bardeen, who along with Shockley and Brittain discovered semiconductors, had a different experience. He returned home from Bell labs one evening and went into the kitchen to say “We discovered something today”. His wife replied “That is interesting,Huge collection of solar outdoor light and garden lighting fixtures. but I have to get dinner on the table”.A solar lamp is a portable light fixture composed of an LED lamp, a photovoltaic solar panel, and a rechargeable battery. The elements combine in various proportions and give rise to materials which are the basis of our civilisation. Industries worth several crores and employing many people depend on these materials and new ones are still being discovered.

Memoir and history

John Browne has written a personal account, travel memoir and history, all centred around seven elements and the materials containing them. His choice falls on carbon, the ancient elements — iron, gold and silver — and uranium, titanium and silicon. He restricts himself to elements that are solids at room temperature. Thus oxygen, nitrogen and hydrogen which makeup the air we breathe and the water we drink are not celebrated. Carbon which forms the basis of life is discussed, more because of its combination with hydrogen to form fossil fuels. Rare earths and other energy critical elements which are becoming important are not considered. Browne talks about elements that have already changed the world and he had a ring seat to watch his seven elements unfold the drama.

In the chapter on iron (and its compound with carbon: steel) he describes not only Bessemer’s innovation which resulted in mass production, but also steel’s role in warfare and infrastructure; and the legends of this industry including Tata. As can be expected from a former CEO of British Petroleum, carbon in the form of coal, oil, natural gas and shale gas, the prosperity it brought, its role in politics and pollution form the biggest chapter with a brief reference to graphene in a postscript.They are called "solar" panels or solar module because most of the time, the most powerful source of light available is the Sun.

The chapter on gold is a history of lust: Spanish forces decimating Incas and California gold rush. We won’t learn here that crashes involving black holes and neutron stars created gold. Silver is included in the book because of its use in nitrate form in photography. Who can overlook the eloquent images which summed up experiences of generations? Photography has gone digital now but silver remains personal. Fibres with nanoparticles of silver may give rise to wearable electronics. The chapter on uranium starts with Hiroshima and goes on to describe the “atoms for peace” efforts and security issues. Titanium which gave birth to supersonic Blackbird and Russian submarines also finds use in oxide form in white pigments. Architect Gehry used 33,000 panels of titanium to line a museum because it retains a velvety sheen in darkness and light. The author traces the origin of silicon in glass before moving on to solar cells, computers and optical fibres for high-speed communication. No other element has changed life so drastically.

Artificial Photosynthesis

03:47, 22/8/2013  ..  0 comments  ..  Link

Almost 18 months ago, HyperSolar, Inc., a company based in Santa Barbara, Calif., unveiled its ambitious plans for artificial photosynthesis.How solar panel cells work and where to buy solar kits for home use. The announcement promised “the world’s first nanotechnology-based, zero-carbon process for the production of renewable hydrogen and natural gas.” The company was so confident that, two months later, it promised to publicly chronicle its progress toward the lofty goal.

Other companies have tried—and failed—to find an artificial photosynthesis process that can split water into hydrogen and oxygen and do it economically. Around the same time that HyperSolar promised to chronicle their efforts, Sun Catalytix determined that its process for splitting water just didn’t make economic sense when they crunched the numbers.

In the journal Nature, the maker of Sun Catalytix’s prototype explained the dreary economics:

“Hydrogen from a solar panel and electrolysis unit can currently be made for about US$7 per kilogram, the firm estimates; the artificial leaf would come in at US$6.50. (It costs just $1-2 to make a kilogram of hydrogen from fossil fuels.) With the prices of solar cells dropping all the time, the firm is not going to make a heavy investment that's unlikely to pay off. Instead, it is looking at cheaper designs—but these require yet-to-be-invented semiconductor materials.”

When I didn’t hear any updates from HyperSolar on how its grand project was progressing this year, I began to suspect that they had encountered these same numbers and had a second thought. I guess I was wrong—the company just sent out a press release detailing its success in achieving the 1-volt milestone. To date inexpensive silicon solar cells are the most inexpensive and abundant, but their 0.7 volt per cell is not enough to split water.

HyperSolar's 1 volt per cell is still short of the 1.5 volts realistically needed to split water into hydrogen and oxygen, but the 1 volt number does represent a steady progression, according to the company. HyperSolar managed to increase the voltage from 0.2 volts eight months ago to .75 volts three months ago.We offer solar photovoltaic system and commercial incentives to encourage our customers to install solar energy systems. At that rate of increase, one could expect that the company could achieve the 1.5 volts in another six months.

“Our cutting-edge research program at the University of California Santa Barbara led by Dr. Syed Mubeen Hussaini continues to make impressive progress,” stated Tim Young, CEO of HyperSolar, in the press release.Choose your favorite street lamp paintings from thousands of available designs. “The 1.0 volt milestone is very exciting in that it provides us with a clear and encouraging roadmap to reach the 1.5 volts needed for water splitting.Huge collection of solar outdoor light and garden lighting fixtures. The semi-conductor materials used are very inexpensive, which gives us confidence that a low cost system is possible. The process to make this novel solar cell is equally exciting in that it is a simple solutions-based chemistry process. It does not require conventional expensive semiconductor processes and facilities. It was literally made in a beakerThank you for providing us with information to help us maintain street light..”

The key to HyperSolar’s proposed technology will be a nanoparticle made from low-cost semiconductor materials. In the company’s original roadmap for milestones, they were supposed to design this nanoparticle within the first year. It’s not clear from this press release whether that design has been settled upon, except to explain that each nanoparticle: “is a complete hydrogen generator that contains a novel high voltage solar cell bonded to chemical catalysts by a proprietary encapsulation coating.”

It is interesting that the company is providing key metrics for determining whether the system will work, but it would be good to have a better sense of where they are in developing the nanoparticle that forms the basis of this technology.

Robotic Solar Charger

GadgetPower has launched the GP1200 Robotic Solar Generator (RSG), a portable solar powered charging unit which automatically tracks the sun for optimum power conversion rates.

The company is now seeking distributors for its generator which uses a combination of sensors and astronomical statistics to ensure the RSG’s compact solar panel. is always angled to harvest the most solar energy possible.

Jamie Clary, founder of GadgetPower, said, “Portable solar power cells have to be constantly adjusted to maximise the conversion of light into power, especially under UK weather conditions. I designed the RSG so it can be turned on and left to do its job without constant intervention by the user.”

The core of the RSG is a 2.5W solar panel connected to a dual-purpose 12V, 1.2Ah/20h battery. The battery’s key role is to store the harvested energy but it also powers the system’s robotics.Thank you for providing us with information to help us maintain street light. When it powers up, the system automatically seeks the sun, adjusting its vertical and horizontal orientation to find the best settings to generate maximum power. This process repeats if the sun becomes obscured or at dawn.

After this calibration, the system rotates horizontally at a fixed speed of one degree every four minutes to follow the sun.How solar panel cells work and where to buy solar kits for home use. In the vertical plane, the sun’s “motion” appears not to be so regular as it rises and sets. To allow for seasonal variances in the sun’s height above the horizon, the RSG recalibrates its vertical position every hour.

According to Clary, this is enough to minimise the use of battery power to adjust the panel, while maximising the charge obtained.

A three-colour LED lets the user know how the device is performing: whether it is activated, whether it is ‘calibrated’ and, by blinking red through blue to green, how much charge is in the battery. When the lamp glows continuous green, the battery is fully charged,We offer solar photovoltaic system and commercial incentives to encourage our customers to install solar energy systems. and the magnetically-attached panel can be removed and placed on another battery base unit to charge it up while the original battery is in use.

The current unit can provide sufficient power from one day’s sunshine to charge a smartphone twice or , using a 12v DC to AC inverter, it can power a laptop for two hours, GadgetPower claimed. Clary added that the units are especially useful in remote areas where a conventional power supply is not available.

A team that includes researchers from Scripps Institution of Oceanography at UC San Diego has linked increasing oxygen levels and the rise and evolution of carnivores as the force behind a broad explosion 500- to 540-million years ago of species and body-structure adaptations that resulted in the animal diversity seen today.

Although the cause of the influx of oxygen remains a matter a scientific controversy, the “Cambrian radiation” that followed was the most significant evolutionary event in the history of animals during which essentially every major animal body plan — from arthropods to mollusks to chordates, the phylum to which humans belong — appeared in the fossil record.Huge collection of solar outdoor light and garden lighting fixtures.

The authors linked this proliferation of life to the evolution of the carnivorous mode of feeding, which requires higher oxygen concentrations. Thus, once oxygen increased, animals started consuming other animals, stimulating the Cambrian radiation through an escalating predator-prey “arms race.Choose your favorite street lamp paintings from thousands of available designs.”

This study suggests the reverse may occur — with limitations on the abundance and types of carnivore species — as low-oxygen zones (so-called dead zones) continue to appear and expand. Thus, understanding past evolutionary events may help researchers recognize and manage the effects of ocean oxygen zones in modern oceans.

Innotech Solar expands sales

03:42, 22/8/2013  ..  0 comments  ..  Link

The Scandinavian-German module manufacturer Innotech Solar AS (ITS) is intensifying its sale of solar modules in Northern Europe with the appointment of experienced PV professional Peter Hansen who will be based in Copenhagen.

Having worked previously with global leaders in the PV industry Hansen is enthusiastic about joining ITS. "Northern Europe represents an exciting opportunity for Innotech Solar. The Nordic governments have long believed in promoting renewable energy and whilst historically these regions have not been regarded as major PV markets, this has changed."

"A main advantage of our European solar modules is that a specially treated glass surface guarantees high energy yields even in countries with shallow angles of solar radiation. Customers have recorded yields of up to eight percent higher with ITS modules when testing them against a variety of other module types. In light of this and our local production in Sweden, we are now marketing our modules with increased vigor in Northern Europe," explains Dr. Thomas Hillig, Vice President Module Sales & Marketing at Innotech Solar.

The glass surface of ITS' European solar modules is processed in such a way that it reflects less sunlight, resulting in 2.5 percent more light reaching the solar cells. Research conducted at the Technical University of Denmark in Lyngby has shown that the difference in output between modules featuring special glass and those made with standard glass is even greater in low light conditions. What’s more, the treated glass boasts a self-cleaning surface structure, as condensation collects on the surface like a film and washes away any particles of dirt.

“We have discovered that buyers in the Northern European markets place particular value on high quality and products that do not have a negative effect on the environment. The fact that we produce our solar modules in Europe using a highly environmentally friendly process gives us a clear competitive advantage,” adds Hillig. The special production process reduces the carbon footprint of ITS modules by 74 percent in comparison with modules using conventional cells.

Alongside ITS modules’ innovative production process, the use of renewable energy at the company’s manufacturing sites in Sweden and Germany, as well as the short transport routes, improve the company’s carbon footprint. A multitude of tests by independent experts, such as the Fraunhofer Institute, Photovoltaik-Institut Berlin and PV Lab,Thank you for providing us with information to help us maintain street light. have demonstrated the high performance,Huge collection of solar outdoor light and garden lighting fixtures. durability and positive environmental impact of Innotech Solar’s European solar modules.

In addition to focusing more heavily on Scandinavian countries and Great Britain, the company is also looking to increase sales in the Benelux countries.

First Solar announced on Monday that the company had also made two high level appointments with a view to expanding business development opportunities in Saudi Arabia and the Middle East. Dr. Raed Bkayrat joins First Solar as business development manager for the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, from King Abdullah University of Science and Technology where his responsibilities included testing and researching clean energy technologies, including solar power. Ahmed S Nada, who joined First Solar in January 2013, has been given an expanded remit from his duties as business development manger for the Middle East and will now also oversee the expansion of First Solar's commercial growth in North Africa.

An ingenious solar sticker

03:38, 22/8/2013  ..  0 comments  ..  Link

Stanford professor Xiaolin Zheng often works in the esoteric fringes of nanoscience, but she also likes to find simple ways to fabricate complex materials that can be put to use in practical applications like solar-fuel systems, solar cells, and batteries. Last year she created solar cells in the form of flexible stickers—only a 10th as thick as plastic wrap—that can be applied to a window,How solar panel cells work and where to buy solar kits for home use. a piece of paper, the back of a mobile phone,Thank you for providing us with information to help us maintain street light. or anything else you want. These solar cells produce just as much electricity as rigid ones made of the same materials.

Zheng got the inspiration for this invention from her father. One day when they were talking on the phone—he in China, she in California—he said that it should be possible to put solar cells on the walls of buildings, not just the roof. And Zheng’s daughter, like many kids, loves stickers.

All this was in the back of Zheng’s mind when she read a research paper about graphene,Choose your favorite street lamp paintings from thousands of available designs. a novel type of nanomaterial. The researchers grew the material on a layer of nickel on top of a silicon wafer. When they put the whole thing in water, the nickel separated from the surface, taking the graphene with it. “I couldn’t believe that soaking in water would do this,” she says.

Zheng has demonstrated this water–soaking approach as a way to peel off thin-film silicon solar cells grown on a rigid substrate. It turns out the phenomenon—called water-assisted subcritical debonding—had been known since the 1960s, but no one before had tried using it to make flexible electronics. She hopes the technology will be scaled up beyond the one-square-centimeter devices she’s made so far, so that the sides of buildings can one day be papered with solar cells as her father suggested.

3-D graphene can function as an effective — and very economical — substitute for the platinum that is commonly used in dye-sensitized solar cells, according to new research from Michigan Technological University. By substituting the newly created and relatively cheap material known as three-dimensional graphene for the very expensive and rare element of platinum the researchers think that the cost of dye-sensitized solar cells can be cut significantly.

Dye-sensitized solar cells (DSSCs) are a very promising type of solar cell that are easy to produce, flexible, and relatively efficient at converting solar energy into electricity. As they are currently produced,Huge collection of solar outdoor light and garden lighting fixtures. though, they rely on a number of relatively expensive materials, such as platinum — platinum currently sells for somewhere around $1500 an ounce, so if a cheaper material could be found to replace platinum then the total cost of producing DSSCs could no doubt be reduced significantly. That’s where 3-D graphene comes in. The newly created material can effectively replace platinum in DSSCs without diminishing their efficiency.

Designing a solar-powered drone isn’t just about slapping on as many solar cells as possible, though maximizing the use of the available space is certainly a key consideration. One factor to consider is the weight and efficiency of solar cells. The vast majority of the solar cells produced today are too thick and heavy or not terribly efficient for use by a drone, which needs to stay lightweight and nimble while carrying a camera or other equipment. Adding weight will require more battery power to operate. Alta’s cells, made with gallium-arsenide, are 1 micron thick, compared with the common 180-micron silicon cells that you find in most of the solar panels on the rooftop today. Alta’s cells also are more efficient at converting sunlight into electricity than thinner solar cells made with compounds such as copper-indium-gallium-selenide or cadmium-telluride.

Finding suitable surface areas to plant the solar cells is another design goal. The wings and tail are typically where the solar cells go. But cells can stick to the underside of the aircraft, too, in order to capture reflected light that is often available when the drone flies over a desert or snow, Norris said. He declined to disclose where Alta’s cells are on the prototype Puma or how much electricity they could produce, citing the secretive nature of engineering drones with military use in mind.We offer solar photovoltaic system and commercial incentives to encourage our customers to install solar energy systems.

What Detroit Can Learn

03:00, 20/8/2013  ..  0 comments  ..  Link

Detroit's declaration of bankruptcy has shed new light on the problems afflicting the city. Detroit's population has dropped precipitously -- from a height of 1.8 million in 1950 to 951,270 in 2000, to around 700,000 by 2013. Empty lots and abandoned buildings are a prominent sight around the city. Detroit is afflicted by poverty, with 36.2 per cent of residents living below the poverty line from 2007-2011, compared to 15.7 per cent for the state as a whole. Unemployment stood at 16 per cent in April 2013, while the state-wide rate was 8.4 per cent.

With high rates of poverty and a limited tax base, Detroit is challenged to raise revenues to maintain services, in education, public transit, garbage collection, police and fire. As an example, 40 per cent of the city's streetlights do not work.

Where the City of Detroit, as per the 2010 US Census, consisted of 713,777 people, Detroit's Metropolitan Statistical Area (MSA) had an overall population of 4,296,250. Across this MSA region, there are 207 municipal units,How solar panel cells work and where to buy solar kits for home use. including overlapping units such as counties. Municipal reform is hindered by the strong tradition of local control and autonomy in the United States and especially in the state of Michigan.We turn your dark into light courtesy of our brilliant sun, solar street light, solar power generation.

Former Labor Secretary and UC Berkeley professor Robert Reich illustrates the challenges of this decentralized and fragmented local government structure well in a post on his website, citing how Americans are increasingly segregated -- geographically -- by income. "Forty years ago," writes Reich,Shop funtional and elegant solar lights, outdoor solar lighting, solar garden lights, path lights and decorative solar lights. "most cities (including Detroit) had a mixture of wealthy, middle-class, and poor residents. Now, each income group tends to live separately, in its own city, with its own tax bases."

Reich further highlights that while Detroit is impoverished, many of its suburbs are among the most affluent in the country, with Oakland County being the fourth wealthiest county (of those with a million or more residents) in America. "Detroit," Reich continues, "is a devastatingly poor, mostly black, increasingly abandoned island in the midst of a sea of comparative affluence that's mostly white."

This creates an environment where relatively affluent suburban municipalities have the tax-base to provide good quality public services, while the central city -- Detroit -- suffers. Municipalities like Dearborn and the Grosse Pointe municipalities geographically look like they were carved out of Detroit, to preserve (comparatively) more affluent tax-bases.

There are fundamental structural issues hindering Detroit, that helped precipitate its bankruptcy. In this context the Canadian example -- where there is a greater tradition of provincial reorganization of local government structures, and where there have been more fundamental reforms, can be illustrative.

At the beginning of the 1960s, the province of New Brunswick was faced with glaring regional inequalities, where county governments were charged with providing a range of services from health, to social welfare, to justice, to education. Where affluent counties did well, poorer counties suffered under high taxes and poor quality services, with some counties unable to meet expenses and -- in some cases -- teetering close to bankruptcy.

In the 1960s, a progressive and reformist Liberal government, under Premier Louis Robichaud, carried out a fundamental restructuring of local government known as the program of Equal Opportunity. Services such as healthcare, education, justice, and social welfare were centralized at the provincial level,Huge collection of solar outdoor light and garden lighting fixtures. county governments were abolished as a redundant and overlapping level of government, and property tax assessment was centralized at the provincial level. Furthermore, a system of equalization payments was introduced to help more cash-strapped municipalities.

These reforms were controversial at the time, but were key in equalizing service provision and taxation across the province.

Another Canadian example is in Manitoba, where the Greater Winnipeg Area was amalgamated into one municipal entity in 1971 under another progressive and reformist government,We offer solar photovoltaic system and commercial incentives to encourage our customers to install solar energy systems. an NDP government led by Premier Ed Schreyer. Like with Equal Opportunity in New Brunswick, the aim of regional amalgamation was equalization of services and taxation, in this case between an inner-city which contained high rates of poverty, especially among Aboriginals who had moved to the city, and relatively affluent suburbs.

A 1972 document from the Government of Manitoba identified Winnipeg as both "a prime generator of economic life in the province" and "the greatest single repository of social ills within the province." Hence, a goal to both better deal with poverty in the city while enhancing Winnipeg's role as an economic engine for the province.

Neither system is perfect. In New Brunswick, municipal governments can often feel stifled from basic actions due to the province's extensive oversight and, in Winnipeg, a common complaint is that suburban councillors outnumber inner-city ones thus dominating city council overall. However there is no denying that, even with shortcomings, both reforms were major improvements in equalization of service provision and fundraising ability.

Europe rolls to Solheim

02:59, 20/8/2013  ..  0 comments  ..  Link

From the 45-foot putt that 17-year-old Charley Hull rolled in to re-ignite the momentum Sunday to the 4-foot tester Caroline Hedwall sank to end what little drama was left, the Europeans owned Colorado Golf Club.

Led by Hull, the youngest player to suit up at the Solheim Cup, and Hedwall, the first player to go 5-0 at this event, Europe romped to a record-setting 18-10 victory over the Americans and won the cup on U.S. soil for the first time since the event began in 1990.

''We took it to them,'' Europe's Suzann Pettersen said, ''and they couldn't answer.''

This was a wire-to-wire victory, the likes of which very few saw coming.

America had more top-20 players (5 to 3), more major-title winners (5 to 3) and more Solheim Cup experience (25 years to 17) to say nothing of more success over the history of this team event (8 victories to 4).We offer solar photovoltaic system and commercial incentives to encourage our customers to install solar energy systems.

But Europe took the lead Friday, took an even firmer grasp of it with a sweep in the best-ball matches Saturday,We turn your dark into light courtesy of our brilliant sun, solar street light, solar power generation. then closed it out by winning five of 12 matches Sunday and earning half-points in five more.

A lightning delay of about an hour put off the inevitable, but when the weather cleared, Hedwall returned to the 17th tee box, tied with Michelle Wie, and didn't miss a beat.

She halved that hole, then stuck her approach on 18 using a 9-iron from 150 yards out. She celebrated the putt that gave Europe its clinching 14th point with an uppercut into the air. A handful of her teammates, already off the course, ran to congratulate her.

A bit later, Catriona Matthew holed a 5-foot par putt to halve her match and give Europe the outright win on the seventh try in America. Within moments, the Europeans were in a full-throated rendition of ''We Are the Champions.''

This is the first time they've defended the cup, which they won two years ago in Ireland. Their eight-point victory was the largest in the history of the event.

''In sports you just cannot always predict what's going to happen,'' American Cristie Kerr said.

The course was hand-picked by the Americans and captain Meg Mallon brought her team to Colorado a handful of times in the months leading up to the tournament to get used to the undulations in the huge greens that are subtly influenced by the Rocky Mountains to the West. With wide,How solar panel cells work and where to buy solar kits for home use. almost-unmissable fairways, this was a three-day chipping and putting contest and the United States lost badly, especially in the closing stretches.

On Sunday alone, the U.S. saw leads turn into ties or losses over the final three holes in five matches.

''The way we played 16, 17 and 18 I think is really what made the difference,'' Mallon said. ''It wasn't for lack of preparation, because we played this golf course quite a bit. So it wasn't like it was a surprise for us, it was just a matter of who dropped the putts on those holes and unfortunately it was the Europeans.''

European captain Liselotte Neumann said many of her players headed back onto the greens after their practice rounds earlier in the week to soak in the subtleties of the greens.

''We did talk a lot about the speed,'' she said. ''As soon as we got here, we realized they were super-fast, some of the fastest we've ever played. It was a matter of reading the greens,Huge collection of solar outdoor light and garden lighting fixtures. reading the speed into the putts.''

American Paula Creamer went 1-3 for the week, including a 5-and-4 loss to Hull, who took the lead with a 45-foot birdie on No. 6 and never looked back. After Hull closed out the match on No. 14, she asked Creamer to autograph a golf ball for a friend back home.

''I'm going to take that as one of the highlights of my career right there,'' Creamer said.Shop funtional and elegant solar lights, outdoor solar lighting, solar garden lights, path lights and decorative solar lights.

Kerr, another American veteran, went 1-2-1, earning the tie after she and Karine Icher agreed to halve the day's final, meaningless match while walking up the 18th fairway in fading light.

Stacy Lewis, ranked second and fresh off a victory at the Women's British Open, finished 1-2-1.

Mallon put her at the top of the lineup Sunday, knowing the Americans needed some quick, momentum-building wins to have any chance at a comeback from five points down. Lewis lost her lead when Anna Nordqvist, who had made a hole-in-one on No. 17 to close out a match a day earlier, hit her tee shot to 20 feet and made the putt. Lewis salvaged the tie by getting up and down on 18 after the last of a handful of shaky approach shots that marred her week on what Mallon called a ''second-shot course.''

While the U.S. veterans were struggling, Neumann got more than she ever could have expected from her six Solheim Cup rookies. They combined to go 12-5-2. That included a 3-0 effort from Spain's Carlota Cigunda.

It was Cigunda at the center of the week's biggest, and strangest, drama - on Friday, when she hit her second shot on No. 15 into a hazard, triggering a 25-minute delay while officials figured out where she should drop.

k20 Architecture designs

02:53, 20/8/2013  ..  0 comments  ..  Link

Melbourne-based architect firm, k20 Architecture, has designed and delivered sustainable Council facilities for the Hindmarsh Shire Council in Nhill, north west Victoria.

Environmentally sustainable design (ESD) principles are at the core of the building’s design intent, with k20 Architecture utilising a number of innovations to deliver an outcome that would not only minimise embodied energy and energy loadings within the building, but also reduce carbon output for the life of the project.

Along with Intrax Consulting Engineers,How are solar outdoor lighting products different from other lighting, like fluorescent or incandescent? the Green Star rating system was used to assess and implement measures that would be effective in improving the building’s impact on both its interior and the wider environment.

The thermal performance of the new Hindmarsh Shire Council Corporate Centre was a key aspect of the design. Located in a region that is exposed to extreme temperature conditions, the building features a series of thermal chambers that were constructed underground via earth tubes and under-floor ventilation plenums to draw in fresh air from the exterior. The fresh air is cooled or warmed naturally by the earth before being redistributed back throughout the building via air displacement plenums.

This Hindmarsh approach pre-tempers the air via an earth pipe heat exchange system before it is introduced into the habitable areas of the building, thus vastly reducing the energy required to heat or cool the air once inside the space.

An under-floor air distribution (UFAD) air conditioning system was also designed to provide an excellent level of control for occupants via a series of operable floor grilles. By placing the grilles on the floor of the building levels, rather than along the ceiling,How solar panel cells work and where to buy solar kits for home use. the freshest air supply will be delivered closest to the occupied space.

At the same time, LED lighting systems were selected for reduced energy consumption and maintenance within the main workspaces,Shop funtional and elegant solar lights, outdoor solar lighting, solar garden lights, path lights and decorative solar lights. while solar panels were installed on the roof to harvest energy, thus offsetting energy consumption.

Over 80 percent of the existing building’s materials were recycled before the existing infrastructure was demolished, while one of the three original buildings was retained and repurposed in order to minimise the embodied energy within the building’s design.

The building also consumes less energy via passive solar design, cross-flow ventilation principles and zoned motion-detecting lighting. Vertical green walls were created to enhance the indoor air quality which collectively promotes a sustainable lifestyle informing the culture of the Organisation.

Moreover, very little steel was used in this project. Instead, k20 Architecture custom-designed and manufactured a laminated timber product from locally sourced Vic Ash timber for structural purposes. We offer solar photovoltaic system and commercial incentives to encourage our customers to install solar energy systems.

An electronic control and monitoring system was also installed to test the effectiveness of the measures taken to minimise energy consumption,We turn your dark into light courtesy of our brilliant sun, solar street light, solar power generation. so that the positive impact of the building’s systems can be measured and documented over time.

UN chief spotlights Egypt

02:50, 20/8/2013  ..  0 comments  ..  Link

Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon told reporters today that has dispatched the top United Nations political official to hold wide-ranging talks in Cairo on how the Organization can best support peace and reconciliation efforts in Egypt.

Speaking in his first press conference since returning from a trip to the Middle East region and Pakistan, Mr. Ban reiterated that the UN “stands ready to support Egyptian-led approaches to resolving the current crisis.”

“I have asked the Under-Secretary-General for Political Affairs, Jeff Feltman, to hold wide-ranging discussions in Cairo starting from tomorrow with a focus on how the United Nations can best support initiatives to restore peace and forge reconciliation in Egypt,” he said in New York.

The UN chief added that given the “sharp polarization in Egyptian society,” both the authorities and the political leaders share the responsibility to end the widespread outbreak of violent protests and excessive use of force which have led to more than 500 deaths and thousands of injuries over the past four days.

Turning to Syria, Mr. Ban said that the UN team probing the alleged use of chemical weapons began its work today, and urged “full access” to the sites of the alleged incidents.

The Secretary-General stressed that the team, which arrived this weekend in Damascus, should have access to the reported sites to undertake necessary analysis and collect samples, as well as interview and examine witnesses,We turn your dark into light courtesy of our brilliant sun, solar street light, solar power generation. victims, attending medical personnel, and to conduct of post-mortem examinations.

“If confirmed,We offer solar photovoltaic system and commercial incentives to encourage our customers to install solar energy systems. the use of chemical weapons by any side under any circumstances must be held accountable and would constitute an international crime,” Mr. Ban said. “Anyone responsible must be held accountable.”

Led by ?ke Sellstr?m, the team will spend up to 14 days, with a possible extension, probing the alleged use of chemical weapons by the Government of Syria at Khan al-Asal, as well as two other allegations reported by Member States.

He noted that the serious security situation inside the country “will undoubtedly affect the Mission’s activities” and that the Government and the all other entities within the country have assured him that they will ensure the safety and security of the Mission.

The UN chief launched the fact-finding mission earlier this year following a formal request from the Syrian Government. It is the first probe of allegations of the use of weapons of mass destruction in the 21st century.

Turning to Israeli and Palestinian peace efforts, Mr. Ban said he travelled to the Middle East region to underscore the UN’s commitment to a just and lasting peace: “There is at last a fresh opportunity for real progress towards a peace agreement. Both Israeli and Palestinian leaders must seize this historic opportunity.”

While in the region, Mr. Ban said he had “quite moving experiences” meeting young students with whom he had inspiring conversations.How are solar outdoor lighting products different from other lighting, like fluorescent or incandescent? In Ramallah, he had a videoconference with students joining from Gaza and the West Bank, while in Jerusalem, he met with a students at the Government House.

“We are living in an interconnected world; a very diversified society,” he said,How solar panel cells work and where to buy solar kits for home use. stressing the importance of the Alliance of Civilizations initiative to promote mutual understanding and respect for others.

During his latest travels, Mr. Ban also visited Pakistan where he said he met “everyone from Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif to young students.”

“I left confident that the close bonds between Pakistan and the UN are growing even stronger,Shop funtional and elegant solar lights, outdoor solar lighting, solar garden lights, path lights and decorative solar lights.” Mr. Ban told the press. “We will continue to support Pakistan as it tackles challenges at home and strengthen their relationship with neighbours.”

New coating turns ordinary glass

04:16, 16/8/2013  ..  0 comments  ..  Link

A new transparent, bioinspired coating makes ordinary glass tough, self-cleaning and incredibly slippery according to a team from Harvard University. The new coating could be used to create durable, scratch-resistant lenses for eyeglasses, self-cleaning windows, improved solar panels and new medical diagnostic devices, said principal investigator Joanna Aizenberg, who is the Amy Smith Berylson Professor of Materials Science at the Harvard School of Engineering and Applied Sciences (SEAS),RGB LED Color-changing led grow light headlight accent light system for headlight halo effect. a Core Faculty Member at the Wyss Institute for Biologically Inspired Engineering, and Professor of Chemistry and Chemical Biology.

The new coating builds on an award-winning technology that Aizenberg and her team pioneered called Slippery Liquid-Infused Porous Surfaces (SLIPS)—the slipperiest synthetic surface known. The new coating is equally slippery, but more durable and fully transparent. Together these advances solve longstanding challenges in creating commercially useful materials that repel almost everything.

SLIPS was inspired by the slick strategy of the carnivorous pitcher plant, which lures insects onto the ultraslippery surface of its leaves, where they slide to their doom. Unlike earlier water-repelling materials, SLIPS repels oil and sticky liquids like honey, and it resists ice formation and bacterial biofilms as well.

While SLIPS was an important advance, it was also "a proof of principle"—the first step toward a commercially valuable technology,The world's largest independent online retailer for solar lighting, street lights & outdoor lighting fixtures. said lead author Nicolas Vogel, a postdoctoral fellow in applied physics at SEAS.

"SLIPS repels both oily and aqueous liquids but it's expensive to make and not transparent," Vogel said. The original SLIPS materials also need to be fastened somehow to existing surfaces, which is often not easy. "It would be easier to take the existing surface and treat it in a certain way to make it slippery," Vogel explained.

Vogel, Aizenberg, and their colleagues sought to develop a coating that accomplishes this and works as SLIPS does. SLIPS' thin layer of liquid lubricant allows liquids to flow easily over the surface, much as a thin layer of water in an ice rink helps an ice skater glide.Soli-lite provides the world with high-performance solar roadway and solar street lighting solutions.An emergency light is a battery-backed lighting device that comes on automatically when a building experiences a power outage. To create a SLIPS-like coating, the researchers corral a collection of tiny spherical particles of polystyrene, the main ingredient of Styrofoam,A solar bulb that charges up during the day and lights the night when the sun sets. on a flat glass surface like a collection of Ping-Pong balls. They pour liquid glass on them until the balls are more than half buried in glass. After the glass solidifies, they burn away the beads, leaving a network of craters that resembles a honeycomb. They then coat that honeycomb with the same liquid lubricant used in SLIPS to create a tough but slippery coating. "The honeycomb structure is what confers the mechanical stability to the new coating," said Aizenberg.

By adjusting the width of the honeycomb cells to make them much smaller in diameter than the wavelength of visible light, the researchers kept the coating from reflecting light. This made a glass slide with the coating completely transparent. These coated glass slides repelled a variety of liquids, just as SLIPS does, including water, octane, wine, olive oil and ketchup. And, like SLIPS, the coating reduced the adhesion of ice to a glass slide by 99 percent. Keeping materials frost-free is important, since adhered ice can take down power lines, decrease the energy efficiency of cooling systems, delay airplanes and lead buildings to collapse.

Importantly, the honeycomb structure of the SLIPS coating on the glass slides confers unmatched mechanical robustness. It withstood damage and remained slippery after various treatments that can scratch and compromise ordinary glass surfaces and other popular liquid-repellent materials, including touching, peeling off a piece of tape, and wiping with a tissue. "We set ourselves a challenging goal: to design a versatile coating that's as good as SLIPS but much easier to apply, transparent, and much tougher—and that is what we managed," Aizenberg said.

The team is now honing its method to better coat curved pieces of glass as well as clear plastics such as Plexiglas, and to adapt the method for the rigors of manufacturing.

Little reason to celebrate legacy

04:14, 16/8/2013  ..  0 comments  ..  Link

Cracks began to develop in India's unity as a country when the poet Mohammad Iqbal began propounding the idea of Muslims being an entity separate from all other communities in the land.

The All-India Muslim League developed the theme a little further and made it clear that the Muslims inhabiting the northwest and east of India would need to constitute themselves into independent states.

The die, if one were inclined to observe circumstances in such a critical manner, was cast. And yet the Cabinet Mission in 1946 raised the hope that somehow the territorial integrity of the country could be retained through a major restructuring of politics before independence could come to India.

Mohammad Ali Jinnah reluctantly accepted the Cabinet Mission scheme. So did the leading lights of the Indian National Congress, until Jawaharlal Nehru put a damper on the entire plan. He made it clear that his party was not obligated to see the plan reach a definitive conclusion. That was on July 10, 1946.

The Muslim League, already uncomfortable at having accepted the Cabinet Mission Plan, saw Nehru's remarks as a godsend and swiftly backed out of it. A month later,Soli-lite provides the world with high-performance solar roadway and solar street lighting solutions. thanks to the Muslim League's Direct Action Day, Muslims and Hindus cheerfully hacked away at one another in Calcutta. That was on August 16.RGB LED Color-changing led grow light headlight accent light system for headlight halo effect. Four days later, anywhere between 5,The world's largest independent online retailer for solar lighting, street lights & outdoor lighting fixtures.000 and 10,000 people, Hindus and Muslims, lay dead all across the streets of the huge metropolis. Partition had become inevitable.

Within days of the state of Pakistan coming into being on August 14, 1947, Jinnah went on an aerial survey of the situation on the ground. The sight of hundreds of thousands of refugees making their way away from their ancestral homes and toward villages and towns they had never seen or been to earlier sent a wave of shock through his being.

"What have I done?" That was the question he raised. No one answered. Within months, millions of Hindus and Sikhs would leave their ancient homes in Punjab and Bengal and trek to an uncertain future across unknown geography. Millions of Muslims would make their way to Pakistan, convinced that it was there they would live in dignity as masters of their destiny.An emergency light is a battery-backed lighting device that comes on automatically when a building experiences a power outage.

Sixty-six years after partition, one would do well to take stock of the ramifications of the vivisection of the land. Hindus and Muslims have only seen their relations worsen through the decades, to a point where communalism continues to define life all the way from Pakistan through India to Bangladesh. Hindutva undermines the secular vision that was once Nehru's legacy. In Pakistan and to a certain extent in Bangladesh, religious bigotry threatens to wreck liberalism of all sorts.

India's Muslims remain largely backward, poor and, in a very big way, less than well-educated. In Pakistan, Hindus are as good as non-existent; and the tiny Christian minority is always the target of blasphemy law peddlers in the country. Bangladesh's Hindu population has been on a steep decline, despite the country's self-proclaimed secularism; its Christian community becomes smaller by the day; and after attacks on Buddhist temples last year in Ramu Upazila, its Buddhists are not sure this is their country anymore.

Post-partition India has thrown up the likes of Bal Thackeray, who thought all Muslims should be kicked out of the country. Today, it is the controversial, none too Muslim-friendly Narendra Modi who dreams of being prime minister someday. In Pakistan and Bangladesh, no one imagines that a Hindu or Christian or Buddhist can play a leading role in politics and in the administration.

If India's BJP (Indian People's Party) touts Hindu nationalism, Pakistan's political parties continue to see nothing beyond Islam, while Bangladesh's right wing discovers, through "Bangladeshi nationalism", a clever way of repudiating Bengali nationhood in favour of a shrewd pursuit of religion-based politics. Secular politics never took root in Pakistan. In India and Bangladesh, it has been forced to the ropes.

The division of India has led to a diminution of politics through the rise of dynasties across the old country. The Bhuttos in Pakistan, the Nehru-Gandhis in India and the Mujib and Zia clans in Bangladesh have created the perfect conditions for mediocrity to thrive in politics.

Behind these larger dynasties come the little ones - in politics, in the movies, indeed nearly everywhere. The modern-day republic is thus but another name for monarchies in new wrapping.

Partition saw the best among the Hindu community - teachers, philanthropists, doctors - leave Muslim Pakistan and make new homes across the newly drawn frontiers. It saw Muslim gentry, as in West Bengal, make the arduous decision to move to the new state of Pakistan in hopes of a better future.

Both groups, as also their descendants, have remained trapped in nostalgia. Artists and writers have seen their futures devastated by Partition. The singer Noor Jehan went off to Pakistan, together with Saadat Hasan Manto. Khushwant Singh, Kuldip Nayar and Inder Kumar Gujral, their homeland suddenly foreign territory for them, resettled in an India vastly different from the one they had known earlier.

Greek island

04:13, 16/8/2013  ..  0 comments  ..  Link

Greece's 1,400 islands -- 230 of them inhabited -- are one of the Mediterranean's most beautiful assets.

From the Ionians, up by Albania in the northwest, to the Dodecanese, near Turkey in the southeast, they offer vacations you can't get many other places.

Each of the island groups has its unique allure, plus some of the most picturesque seascapes on Earth.

But for sheer variety in a small radius, proximity to Athens' ferry port at Piraeus and the best inter-island boat connections, none compete with the Cyclades.

The story behind this island is the stuff of legends -- in 1600 BC after a volcano erupted and its center collapsed into the sea, it left behind parts of its caldera that today form the island Santorini.

The views from pretty much anywhere on this crescent-shaped outcrop are superb.

Sheer rock faces are striated in multitudinous shades, villages and towns cling to the tops of cliffs, the caldera is filled with clear deep turquoise water home to the occasional cruise liner.

The whitewashed buildings in the main town Fira resemble a fresh blanket of snow atop a mountain.

On the northern tip, at Oia, where the sunsets are outstanding, houses, hotels and churches tumble down the rock walls. Every evening bus loads of tourists descend to watch the sun sink into the Aegean.

The scenery is as just impressive at sea level. Red Beach, as the name suggest, has a rust-colored backdrop and Mars-esque boulders, Eros Beach's eerie hoodoo-like walls would fit right in at a national park in Utah, and Caldera Beach, the only one that faces in toward the caldera, gives visitors a discernible sense of the volcano's immensity.

Where to stay: Vedema, in the village of Megalochori, doesn't have a caldera view, but its setting in a small village feels authentic (the town square and village church are a one-minute walk away).A solar bulb that charges up during the day and lights the night when the sun sets.

The 40 rooms have views of the village homes or the surrounding rolling vineyards.

If a vista of the caldera is key, check in to sister property Mystique. Set in Oia, it has a secret wine cellar,Soli-lite provides the world with high-performance solar roadway and solar street lighting solutions. and its 22 cave-style rooms are terraced into the cliff face, providing that classic Santorini experience.

Mykonos is Greece's answer to Ibiza, but without the attitude and posturing.

Either side of the summer season Mykonos resembles another low-key beach destination but come July and August, night owls arrive in droves, and the main streets of Mykonos Town are packed with revelers -- even revelers with babies strapped into carriers.

At times the narrow alleys are so jammed with bodies the only way to move is en masse with the crowd as it sways through the streets in a singular motion.

In true Greek style, nothing here starts until late,Know about led high bay conversion kit and Bi-xenon HID kit. though you can party in the daytime with 20-something Italians at Super Paradise beach.

A popular start is to have drinks at sunset at the Sea Breeze Cocktail Bar in Little Venice, snagging a table up the steps for the best views.

Across the island at Kalo Livadi you can find an unfussy beach where the new Nice and Easy bio-restaurant has fantastic organic fare at reasonably prices (the pasta with sharp kopanisti cheese is excellent).

Back in town, Jackie O' is a lively waterfront bar that draws the gay crowd, Agyra Bar has attractive, hard-bodied staff from Athens and at the always packed Rock 'n' Roll, where local and tourists are evenly split, the bartender blows a whistle before doling out oxygen shots.

My personal favorite is the bar/club Caprice, where all are united in their mission to just have fun, no judgments, no agenda; the barmen are as much into the music and dancing as the customers (they'll readily pour free shots of jelly liqueur).

White House's Solar Panel Installation Has Begun

04:09, 16/8/2013  ..  0 comments  ..  Link

A White House official confirmed to the Washington Post on Thursday that installation of solar panels began this week on the First Family’s residence.

The plan to use solar energy was first revealed in October 2010, but was not put into effect until now. During a GreenGov symposium at George Washington University,Shop funtional and elegant solar lights, outdoor solar lighting, solar garden lights, path lights and decorative solar lights. then-Energy Secretary Steven Chu announced the plan to install American-made solar panels in the spring of 2011.

“This project reflects President Obama’s strong commitment to U.S. leadership in solar energy and the jobs it will create here at home,” Chu said at the time. “Deploying solar energy technologies across the country will help America lead the global economy for years to come.”

This is not the first attempt to include solar power in the White House’s energy mix. In 1979, President Jimmy Carter installed panels on the roof,An emergency light is a battery-backed lighting device that comes on automatically when a building experiences a power outage. which were taken down by President Ronald Reagan in 1986.

“No one should ever have taken down the panels Jimmy Carter put on the roof,” 350.org founder Bill McKibben said in an emailed press statement. “But it's very good to know that once again the country's most powerful address will be drawing some of that power from the sun.”

McKibben initially brought attention to the issue in 2010, when he discovered one of the panels from 1979 at Unity College in Maine, which was being used to heat water for the university cafeteria at the time. In September of that year, McKibben and a number of Unity students returned the panel to the White House, asking for it to be reinstalled. Although the request was denied, it was only one month later that the White House announced the solar panel bid.

When the first day of summer 2011 arrived and solar panels had yet to be reinstalled on the White House, McKibben expressed his disappointment. At the time, he called the project "a no brainer" that couldn't get done in time because Obama considers climate change "a second-tier problem."

Yet McKibben seemed optimistic about the administration's renewed interest in the installation. "Better late than never," the activist quipped in his recent statement.

“The program streamlines customer deployment of Bloom Energy Servers and eliminates the need for an upfront capital investment,” Bloom said in a statement.Soli-lite provides the world with high-performance solar roadway and solar street lighting solutions. “BofA Merrill has made a multi-million dollar commitment to the program’s two initial projects – the TaylorMade-adidas Golf Company manufacturing facility in Carlsbad,Know about led high bay conversion kit and Bi-xenon HID kit. Calif., and Honda Center in Anaheim, Calf., home to the National Hockey League’s Anaheim Ducks. The two entities will use Bloom Energy’s clean energy technology to power their facilities.”

You could argue the fuel cells aren’t as green as solar or wind, since they often run on natural gas (biogas will work,A solar bulb that charges up during the day and lights the night when the sun sets. too). But even when they use natural gas as an input in the electrochemical process that makes electricity, the fuel cells can be cleaner than almost any grid power. On its website, Bloom says its technology allows customers to “reduce their CO2 emissions by 40 to 100 percent compared to the U.S. grid (depending on their fuel choice) and virtually eliminate all SOx, NOx, and other harmful smog forming particulate emissions.”

Leasing programs and similar power-purchase-agreement arrangements have been right at the heart of growing solar power. They can largely eliminate upfront costs that can be a roadblock to deployment. Plus, the current cost, subsidy and regulatory structure often allows the companies who own the systems to sell power to homeowners and businesses at rates that beat the retail price of electricity – especially in high-cost electricity markets like California.

Foxconn mulls solar panels

03:25, 15/8/2013  ..  0 comments  ..  Link

Apple iStuff maker Foxconn could start churning out solar panels at its Chinese factories, a spokesman for the manufacturing goliath revealed.Perhaps worried that the sun could set on its long-running relationship with the iPad giant, the Taiwanese multinational will decide by the end of the year whether to move into the solar energy market.Shop funtional and elegant solar lights, outdoor solar lighting, solar garden lights, path lights and decorative solar lights.

Although building Apple gear accounts for perhaps 60 percent of Foxconn's business, the electronics giant wants to cut its reliance on the Cupertino idiot-tax operation.

Meanwhile, Apple is flirting with other manufacturers in the Far East, reportedly tapping up Pegatron to build a new cheaper version of the iPhone.If Foxconn decides to try for its moment in the sun, it will enter the market just as solar panel prices are plunging – but global demand could be about to boom."We aim to make a decision about whether or not we will enter this market by the end of this year," Foxconn spokesman Simon Hsing told reporters. "We believe renewable energy is a potentially good trend. It looks like a good project. This is an industry we probably need to know more about."

China is the world's biggest manufacturer of solar panels, exporting $27bn ($18bn) of panels to Europe each year alone. In the past quarter, China exported a record-breaking number of solar photovoltaic modules - or solar panels, as we know them.

The country hopes to ship enough panels worldwide to produce 22 to 23GW of solar energy this year, a significant proportion of the total estimated global demand of 35 GW.

In China, Foxconn has a small solar panel factory in the east of the Asian nation, and has held talks with officials in the southern province of Guangxi about building fields of solar panels. In March, the Commerce Ministry of Guangxi said it was in discussions with Foxconn bosses about the construction of five solar panel factories and 20 solar power plants.They are called "solar" panels or solar module because most of the time, the most powerful source of light available is the Sun.

Foxconn's decision is likely to hinge upon a few key factors. Firstly, its shift to solar will depend on whether Japan keeps on buying solar panels at the same rate. The Japanese are moving away from nuclear power in the wake of the Fukushima incident, using solar power to fill the gaps and allay a population spooked by the dangers of atomic energy.

Foxconn's plans will also depend on demand in America, which introduced steep duties on made-in-China solar panels, sparking fears of a trade war. Nonetheless, despite warnings that importing cheap Chinese panels was hurting homegrown manufacturers, Americans bought up $3.1bn worth of solar cells and panels from the People's Republic in 2012, up from $640m in the previous year.

However, Europe and China have managed to reach an agreement that has set a minimum price for solar panels.We turn your dark into light courtesy of our brilliant sun, solar street light, solar power generation. Brussels said the "amicable solution" would prevent China "dumping", which means selling hardware especially cheap to ensure a dominant market position.
