Moleskine has introduced their notebook device that exactly mirrors a branded notebook. From 2012 August, Moleskine and Evernote associated together to manufacture a digital notebook. The notebook has stickers and pages for syncing with the Smartphone. Nowadays we can’t describe our modern life without smartphones, that is why many processes became more easily to do. For example if you want to amuse yourself, you can drop into popular website ValleyGames and choose your online casino, instead of searching for a gambling house. Or to order food, or shopping, or whatever. But some people find it more practical to use paper notebooks. Well, let’s see what moleskine can offer. Continue reading
If not to go into details, then VPN (Virtual Private Network) it is the service providing a connection between the set of networks with the exchange of ciphered data and substitution of the real IP address of the user’s device and the server which is placed far off.
All of this is sounds pretty boring and not especially interesting. Yeah? But in practice, it is the very useful and important technology which will help you to save anonymity and confidentiality inside the Network.
Safe access to home or working network from everywhere
The VPN is extremely important technology for those who have no opportunity to be connected to the office network because of being outside of working place (while being on vacation or on a business trip) but with the need for access to files on this network. Common Internet users are using VPN for the same reasons – if remote access to the local area network or the home PC if necessary.
But why the VPN connection is such useful? The VPN it is excellent for means of safe using the Internet, in particular, if access is made through the generally available unprotected point. There is a high probability that with a connection to free Wi-Fi point, you put at risk own personal data. But many experts saying that use of VPN will reduce the probability of stealing of your personal information to zero. Hackers and other interested persons won’t be able to get access to the ciphered information. They will only see that connection is protected by VPN, and your precious data will remain in complete confidentiality. If you still don’t use these services, then it will be useful to explore VPN service benefits on the Anta.NET or another theme-based website where you will be able to find all information needed.

A significant portion of municipal solid waste, even in the most advanced methods of collecting and sorting waste is subjected to high temperature procession with a primary focus on combustion in mechanical grate furnaces. Prepared in collaboration with Simdean specialists, largely applying solutions, the article analyses the experience of using plasma technology for the processing of various types of waste. It is noted that to process solid waste disposal technologies are hardly used because of the higher maintenance and operating costs compared with layer combustion. The environmental benefits plasma gasification method are also obvious. Continue reading
Experts remind that in the last twenty years, the rapid development of the global network has repeatedly called into question the very idea of copyright-protected source of income for authors, because it conflicted with the uncontrolled and non-profit entity of the Internet. It is only in relatively recent times began to take root in various online business models of especially large corporations, and then the small and medium enterprises (SME). SME firms have been deriving benefits from the use of new digital technologies, will enable them to innovate, to increase the number of jobs and to acquire a niche in the national markets. According to the data from National Statistics Agency and several reports of UMIP, a savvy branch of the University of Manchester focused on intellectual property questions and commercialisation in particular, 5.6% of UK GDP is provided by enterprises of creative industries.

Glass reinforced concrete represents a composite material consisting of fine-grained concrete (matrix) and dispersion reinforced with short glass fibers. Thus, glass reinforced concrete (or GRC) combines the typical of the conventional concrete high compressive strength with extreme flexibility and tensility (4-5 times higher than in concrete), strength (10-15 times higher) and frost resistance (more than 300 cycles).
This is an environmentally friendly material that does not contain harmful ingredients and belongs to the category of non-combustible materials. Glass reinforced concrete offers increased waterproofness and a high degree of adhesion to plain concrete, boasting high resistance to cracking at the same time. Easily molded, acquiring complex spatial shapes with GRC is a walk in the park mission, plus the material exactly replicates the tiniest details on the surface. Moreover, GRC products have a small cross-section (ranging from 6 to 20 mm) and are considerably lighter in comparison with the products of conventional concrete. Continue reading
The growing demand of both industrial towns and large cities in carports, caused by the high population density in the urban areas, throw designers together with a good number of challenges. The main objectives set to car park ventilation professionals are typically the following:
- Maintain the acceptable indoor air parameters
- Ensure decent fire resistance
- Implement an environment-friendly system
Covered parking facilities are usually located below the ground level and require the installation of mechanical ventilation in nine cases out of ten. Semi-covered parking constructions, as a rule, are comprised of frames with multiple floors, though a roof and exterior walls may be partially or completely absent. This is where a natural or mixed ventilation system can be installed (a combination of natural and mechanical systems can also be installed for sites with a large floor area).
Closed car park ventilation system performs the following functions:
- Maintains the allowable concentration of carbon monoxide (CO)
- prevents the formation of explosive concentrations of flammable gases
The main factor determining the characteristics of a future parking ventilation system is the approximate number of cars serviced on a daily basis. This number is oftentimes determined by the type of construction, which represents the carport. As a rule, apartment buildings and shopping centers adopt the condition of constant and distributed car use, while the number of moving vehicles varies from 3% to 5% of the total number of cars. The situation is different in parking lots of sports facilities, concert halls, airports and etc. Here, the number of vehicles in simultaneous motion equals 15-20% during peak hours or during the hours that coincide with the beginning or the end of the business day.
Polyshield is a modern, high-performance, sprayed, two component pure polyurea elastomer. The material is based on various amino-polyester resins, amino-resin and MDI prepolymers, providing a flexible, durable and monolithic waterproofing membrane boasting truly efficient resistance to water and chemical activity.
Polyshield is characterised by high abrasion resistance, that’s why it is added into the armory of protective materials as waterproofing and corrosion-resistant coating in heavy and mining industries to prevent abrasive wear.
Polyurea-based Polyshield features
- 100% solvent-free material
- Unlike other materials, polyshield offers hydrophobic properties; therefore, it reacts poorly with wet or cold surfaces it is applied to.
- Larger gel time allows deeper penetration and impregnation.
- Extreme temperatures resistance (121°C+) with an ability to sustain short 150°C loads.
- High abrasion resistance
- Higher strength in comparison with the majority of analogs
- Class 1 Flammability, National Fire Protection Association USA (NFPA) compliant
Spheres of application
The material has been successfully applied in numerous types of residential and commercial facilities; Polyshield is primarily used for:
- Protection of steel from abrasion
- Waterproofing (swimming pools , roof waterproofing, sewage tanks, dams , tunnels, barges and etc.)
- Replacing or repairing sheet membrane coatings
- Waterproofing and corrosion protection of steel tanks, silos and pipelines
- Protective elastomer for polystyrene
- Protective coating for asbestos cement sheets , lead paint and a range of hazardous materials
- Protective coating for truck bodies, cars, dump cars; roof coating.
Depending on the specialization (exploration, seismology geophysics and etc.), a geophysicist is responsible for various tasks implementation. Thus, a geophysics specialist can conduct the business in a research laboratory equipped with all the bells and whistles as well as in the field, leaving the comfortable office for site exploration. Geophysicists typically visit deserts, mountains and other unusual and hard to reach places; sometimes they have no other choice but to climb the mountains or cross over wild rivers. Continue reading
A group of researchers from Korea and Japan announced they have found a simple way for industrial scale production of two-dimensional graphene film. The neoteric material is more affordable, transparent and durable in comparison with indium tin oxide (ITO), used as a transparent conductor at the moment. Graphene offers immunity to decay effect and incredible lifetime.
A far famed investment fund with a charging structure functioning under the ‘no win no fee’ principle was shut down as it fails to win over savers. Established in the first quarter of 2011 by Nigel Legge, a proficient and respectable stock picker, The Vinculum Global Equity faces its last days. An affair started by Legge collided with a major finance issue – the former Liontrust headman, the fund has managed to raise as little as 2.5m in euro. Therefore, an economically non-viable enterprise was subjected to a radical measure – shut down.
Three years ago, just when the fund was called into existence, financial experts spoke positively of the fee structure standing in fund service. Thus, Vinculum charged just 0.25pc annually, while a typical cost equaled 1pc per year for fund investments run by professional.
Additionally, Vinculum charged investors an extra of 20pc in case outperformance over stock is registered in comparison with the benchmark in the face of FTSE World Index. Legge explained the fees from a rational customer service point of view, saying that such action is way more reasonable rather than charging for underperformance. A savvy stock picker labeled the policy as a fund management evolution. Unfortunately, the evolution experienced a collapse as the fund contacts its investors, notifying of its closure.
The administrator of Vinculum, Peter Smith, in his letter to investors says that the fund is no longer economically viable, and the intention to shut down the fund is the only reasonable option available at the moment. Thus, February 10 was the day the fund stopped its functioning. It seems that Legge accepted the situation and make the decisive step to avoid possible financial accident claims. The state of affairs was previously studied in details at one of the largest UK legal platforms where you can also find a solicitor – at Solicitors Guru. In a case if you need more info on the opportunity to avoid legal fees in a process – read about no win no fee compensations on the same website.
Distillery industry requires particularly close attention to the quality of the components for spirituous beverages production, as well as the quality of glass containers in which they are bottled. The use of modern ultrasound technology allows achieving excellent results in containers cleaning that exceed any quality standards. Therefore, distillery companies can derive juicy benefits from using ultrasound equipment adjusted to particular demands.
Bottle washing machines allow solving one of the most crucial problems in distillery industry – inner surface of glass containers leaching under the influence of alcohol-containing product. This effect occurs because of poor quality glass surface, damaged by incorrect storage of container. Ultrasonic treatment of glass containers in a weak solution of hydrochloric acid at room temperature contributes to a full recovery of the glass surface, if the initial ratio of water resistance does not exceed 0.6 ml of 0.01 N HCl. The quality of the recovered surfaces is confirmed by storing alcoholic solutions for long periods of time under different climatic conditions.
Bottle washing machines – extra advantages
Bottle washing machines are also used for refillable containers cleaning. To remove the salt deposits in the bottle washing machines use acidic solutions, while removing a range of other contaminants implies using alkaline. Implanting ultrasonic cleaning in distillery manufactures contributes to a 100% increase in reusable packaging cleaning and a significant productivity growth.
Ultrasonic Cleaners can significantly intensify the process of extraction, resulting in rapid obtaining of high-quality extracts for the production of alcoholic beverages. An ultrasound effect on the extraction is achieved due to improved hydrodynamic conditions of the process and an increased temperature of the mixture. Another process optimization method lies in ultrasonic modules integration in existing equipment (percolators, extractors and tanks for infusion). Continue reading
