Electricity is considered to be one of the biggest contributors of huge budget allocation aside from the water supply. Whether it is for home or business establishment use, a lot of users would tend to express their disappointments when the electric bills summon for their payment. According to the energy saving body of the Carbon Trust , electricity costs have found to have doubled particularly in businesses over the past years. This eventually pushed for the imminent raise of concerns regarding sustainability. In an attempt to accommodate and address this pressing agenda, initiatives in pushing energy efficient lighting strategies have been a very rampant ...

Thinking about going green? Quite a few companies nowadays are taking action to reduce their environmental footprint. Some of them are doing to comply with certain eco-friendly legislation, to lower their costs through energy efficiency increase or to simply meet their customers’ demands. But switching to eco-friendly environmental practices has other pros, as companies can achieve significant financial benefits and become widely known as eco-friendly companies. Energy Efficiency Hopefully, renewable energy sources will become dominant means of creating energy in the future, although there are several barriers still preventing that scenario: cost, ...

With depleting energy resources, energy costs are rising. Homeowners can take steps to cut heating costs by having their home assessed for energy ratings and following proper insulation, heating and glazing to increase the energy efficiency of their heating systems. Speaking of which, anyone else considering double glazing to be just a myth ? Anyways, reducing the amount of energy the building uses, you’ll not only be reducing pollution, gas emissions and playing a part in reducing your impact on climate change, but also save money. For homeowners that don’t have the resources to bring major changes in their home insulation and install more efficient ...

Industry News America's Oil And Natural Gas Booms Are Two Very Different Stories by: Suzanne McGee and Ashley Kindergan, The Financialist Not long ago, the idea of the United States producing more oil than Saudi Arabia seemed like a pipe dream. But then fracking, a technique the energy industry has been using in some capacity since the 1950s, came into its own. Huge advances in hydraulic fracturing and horizontal drilling over the last decade have coaxed crude oil and natural gas from shale beds once considered impenetrable in the United States. The implications are huge: According to the International Energy Agency, the U.S. could ...

Southern U.S. to see nearly $500 billion in oil and gas infrastructure spending by 2025 Energy companies are set to spend close to $1 trillion on oil and gas storage, processing and transportation upgrades over the next decade, investments that will support more than 900,000 jobs nationwide. API State of American Energy 2014 event held in Washington D.C. on Tuesday (Jan. 7), predicts companies on average will spend $73.8 billion annually from 2014 to 2025 to build new pipelines, storage and processing facilities.

The workplace is our second home. There is no denying it – we spend most of our waking hours there. Whether is it a garage, a road or an office with a balcony and a lovely view, it undeniably shapes a big part of our lives. Is makes sense then, that the age old quest for bigger and better in terms of productivity has relatively recently shifted toward a number of techniques that can be summed up in one simple fact: a happy worker is a good worker. Work performance is inextricably linked with one’s ability . Other two factors identified as crucial catalysts in increasing productivity are motivation and opportunity . The latter does not relate only to advancement ...

The Commission proposes training, access restriction, and signage requirements for fixed transmitter sites considering recent standards activity working toward defining industrial RF safety programs. In particular, the Commission uses, in part, a combination of certain concepts, programs, specifications, and actions contained in IEEE Std C95.7-2005, IEEE Std C95.2-1999, NCRP 2002 Letter Report, and Chapter 2.4 of the NAB Engineering Handbook, in the derivation of these proposed rules. The Commission realizes that rigid requirements may not be practical in all cases, but clear rules that can be followed where feasible can help avoid both inadvertent over-exposure ...

Radio Pulse

Radio pulse At one end of a disused runway, E2V assembled a varied collection of second-hand cars and motorbikes in order to test the prototype against a range of vehicles. In demonstrations seen by the BBC a car drove towards the device at about 15mph (24km/h). As the vehicle entered the range of the RF Safe-stop , its dashboard warning lights and dials behaved erratically, the engine stopped and the car rolled gently to a halt. Digital audio and video recording devices in the vehicle were also affected. “It’s a small radar transmitter,” said Andy Wood, product manager for the machine. “The RF [radio frequency] is pulsed from the unit just as ...

A British company has demonstrated a prototype device capable of stopping cars and other vehicles using a blast of electromagnetic waves. The RF Safe-Stop uses radio frequency pulses to “confuse” a vehicle’s electronic systems, cutting its engine. E2V is one of several companies trying to bring such a product to market. It said it believed the primary use would be as a non-lethal weapon for the military to defend sensitive locations from vehicles refusing to stop. There has also been police interest. The BBC was given a demonstration of the device at Throckmorton Airfield, in Worcestershire. Deputy Chief Constable Andy Holt, of the Association ...

Energy Efficient Living

According to a study by the U.S. Department of Energy , one-fifth of the total energy consumed in any average American home is attributed to the use of energy inefficient electrical appliances. Therefore, replacing such appliances with energy-efficient ones can go a long way in cutting down on your energy consumption. Due to this, various governments are collaborating with manufacturers of electrical appliances to provide Energy Star appliances that consume less energy. For a home to be ENERGY STAR certified, it must meet the energy efficiency guidelines set by the EPA . And so if plans are to do some home improvement projects, energy efficiency ...

Looking back at the past 40 years of development and forward to the new millennium, this article reviews the subject of safety standards for exposure to microwave/RF energy. The present standards are highly advanced with the use of modern dosimetry and a thorough computerized review of the literature. The bioeffects and hazards are predominantly thermal in nature and applicable standards, whether for exposure or product performance, incorporate large safety factors. These standards are the result of broad consensus among an appropriate balance of scientists, engineers, and stakeholders that results under the due ...

Some interesting news these days regarding cloud industry. Major companies signed some really big deals with government agencies. I'm not really sure how its going to affect lives of civilians but more and more lately we're hearing about interconnections between big cloud computing companies and government security/spying agencies even though we all witnessed recent scandal surrounding NSA and their infamous PRISM program. From what we can see, these companies are fleeing to provide services to government. IBM has inked a five-year, $30 million cloud computing contract with the U.S. General Services Administration ( GSA ) to provide end-to-end ...

According to the U.S. Federal Communications Commission (FCC), which regulates radiation from cellphones, "there is no scientific evidence to date that proves that wireless phone usage can lead to cancer or a variety of other health effects, including headaches, dizziness or memory loss." But, Schulder said, "commonsense would tell you that since a cellphone is a microwave generator and emits radiation, it has the potential to alter DNA. And it should be used in moderation." Proving a causal relation between cellphone use and brain tumors is very hard to do, Schulder added. "It [would] take following many patients over many years to try to draw a connection," ...
