21 Nov 11 Construction Intervention: The Blarney Stone

Forty years ago, the Blarney Stone, a family owned Irish bar, opened its doors in the Financial District to much success. But, after the death of the Keane family patriarch and 9/11, business has suffered, leaving brothers Teddy and Joe struggling to carry on the family business. Now, after 40 years of wear and tear, The Blarney Stone desperately needs renovation in order to attract the new wave of young residents living in the Financial District. However, renovation has been out of the question and the bar is literally disintegrating around them! A construction intervention would resurrect the spirit of the Blarney Stone and bring in new customers to this much loved neighborhood institution. When someone new walks in, they almost immediately walk out because nearly everything is original from 1969! From the barely functioning steam table to the cracked tile floor, the kitsch of this bar is killing its revenue. Although these troubles haven’t stopped loyal regular customers from enjoying great food and cheap drinks, the grungy appearance has hindered the flow of new clientele that Joe and Teddy need to make up for the loss of business they suffered after 9/11. While the brothers try their best to keep profits up, they are barely making ends meet and fear losing the family business that was their father’s pride and joy. Nearly everything could use a facelift. The floors are dingy, the ceiling tiles are mismatched and water damaged, the air conditioning ducts leak, the

20 Nov 11 How to Avoid Electro Magnetic Field and Radiation Part 2

Qlink Pendant : Qlink Pendant Reviews: Home Radiation Protection : REMOVE ALL ELECTRICAL EQUIPMENT FROM THE BEDROOM. Clock radios, TVs, phones, electric blankets. • If you must have them in the bedroom, place them as far away from the head of the bed as possible. It would be best to use a wind up or battery operated alarm clock. • If you sleep in a water bed, unplug it (only switching off is not sufficient) before getting in at night. • Do not use electric blankets. Use a hot water bottle or preheat bed with electric blanket, but unplug during sleep (only switching off is not sufficient). • Sleep with your head away from power outlets. SLEEP/REST AWAY FROM HIGH FIELD AREAS like the house power main and operational refrigerators and appliances. Remember, fields extend some distance, even through walls. • Place kitchen and laundry appliances on outside walls. • It is highly beneficial to turn the power to the bedroom off at night. Remember there may also be lighting fixtures in ceilings below your bedroom and these should be turned off at the main also. IN YOUR VEHICLE: There are high levels of EMFs in the engine compartment of a vehicle. The alternator and ignition being the main culprits. If you are in the market for a new car, it would be best to choose one that allows you to sit further back from the engine. Although fuel efficiency is a concern, for the health purposes of someone with EHS it would be better to choose a

19 Nov 11 Thought-Controlled Wheel Chair

Its the power of imagination thats directing this wheelchair to move around at Japan’s Riken Brain Science Institute. Well, more precisely, its the result of a computer reading the brainwaves of the subject seated in the chair. Carmaker Toyota has teamed up with the Riken Brain Science Institute to create the technology that can smoothly move a person around in light wheeled vehicle. [Andrzej S. Cichocki, Riken-Toyota Collaboration Lab Head]: “This system is based on so-called imaginary motor paradigm. So, a subject after training, he imagines movement of the limbs, right hand, left hand and feet.” The wheelchair requires at least one week of training before the software and the user can adapt to each other. The time required to process a brain wave into computer data has been trimmed down to 125 milliseconds – and this is why a wheelchair can twirl around as though it were being handled physically. The research team has big plans for the future of this technology, but for now an immediate goal is to improve wheelchair technology so that it can be used by those most paralyzed. Over the next five years, the researchers to increase accuracy up to 100% and reduce training time to one hour or less. Cichoki envisions a SmartHouse where you won’t have to give a second thought when turning on electronic applications ranging from computer keyboards to gaming and refrigerators. [Andrzej S. Cichocki, Riken-Toyota Collaboration Lab Head]: “In SmartHouse, a person can control many

19 Nov 11 Carnot Engine

Check us out at A Carnot heat engine is a hypothetical engine that operates on the reversible Carnot cycle. The basic model for this engine was developed by Nicolas Léonard Sadi Carnot in 1824. The Carnot engine model was graphically expanded upon by Benoît Paul Émile Clapeyron in 1834 and mathematically elaborated upon by Rudolf Clausius in the 1850s and 60s from which the concept of entropy emerged. Every thermodynamic system exists in a particular state. A thermodynamic cycle occurs when a system is taken through a series of different states, and finally returned to its initial state. In the process of going through this cycle, the system may perform work on its surroundings, thereby acting as a heat engine. A heat engine acts by transferring energy from a warm region to a cool region of space and, in the process, converting some of that energy to mechanical work. The cycle may also be reversed. The system may be worked upon by an external force, and in the process, it can transfer thermal energy from a cooler system to a warmer one, thereby acting as a refrigerator or heat pump rather than a heat engine. In the adjacent diagram, from Carnot’s 1824 work, Reflections on the Motive Power of Fire, there are “two bodies A and B, kept each at a constant temperature, that of A being higher than that of B. These two bodies, to which we can give or from which we can remove the heat without causing their temperatures to vary, exercise the functions of two

18 Nov 11 Absorption Chiller Animation part 1

Absorption Chiller Animation part 1 —
Video Rating: 4 / 5 Several developments have highlighted the growing hazards of EMF pollution—and the crucial need to address them. A report that cited more than 2000 studies found that chronic exposure to even low-level radiation (like that from cell phones) can cause a variety of cancers, impair immunity, and contribute to Alzheimers disease and dementia, heart disease, and many other ailments. One likely way: EMFs open the blood-brain barrier, causing blood vessels to leak fluid into the brain and damage neurons. Whats more, a lesswell known kind of EMF, known as “”dirty”” or transient electricity, may play an even more damaging role. Transients are largely by-products of modern energy-efficient electronics and appliances—from computers, refrigerators, and plasma TVs to compact fluorescent lightbulbs and dimmer switches—which tamp down the electricity they use. This manipulation of current creates a wildly fluctuating and potentially dangerous electromagnetic field that essentially charges up the electrons in every cell of your body. Some research suggests that by overlapping the bodys signaling mechanisms, transients may interfere with the secretion of insulin, drown out the call and response of the immune system, and cause other physical havoc. Luckily, there are some things you can do to protect your health. Environmental consultant Cindy Sage recommends these simple steps to limit your exposure to electromagnetic fields from all sources. 1. Avoid
