I Proposed innovation

The system based on the use of the solar power that accumulates, regulates and controls the energy consumption of the building through the control of operations of all devices and energy consuming elements of the building, including the equipment (TV set, computer, fridge, etc.), heating and water supply system, windows shutters, lighting of the interior and exterior, while owners of the buildings can sell out the excess of energy accumulated by the system.

II Introduction and background

Today, the problem of the environment protection is one of the major challenges to the contemporary society. In actuality, this problem is global and affects the entire global community. In such a situation, the ineffective use of technology and excessive energy consumption by buildings, both households and public or private buildings used for other purposes, contributes consistently to the aggravation of the problem of the environment pollution. Traditionally, technologies, including information technologies have been viewed as the major source and driver of the energy consumption growth. To a significant extent, such a view on the technology was right because the progress of the technology stimulated the wider use of new devices, machines and equipment that required more and more energy.

At the same time, today, the technology can contribute to the solution or prevention of the problem of the excessive energy consumption and, therefore, the problem of the environment pollution. In this regard, the proposed system will accumulate the energy using the power of son. Solar batteries installed on the roof of buildings can accumulate the energy, while the information system connected to all the equipment and systems of the building will distribute the energy, while the excess of the accumulated energy may be sold by the owner of the building to third parties. In fact, contemporary information technologies and modern telecommunication systems allow monitoring and control the performance of virtually all equipment within buildings. In such a situation, there is a potential possibility of creating smart houses or buildings, which can be controlled by the information system. In this regard, it is possible to suggest developing the information system that focuses on the regulation and control of functioning of the equipment, heating and water supply system, windows shutters, lighting of the interior and exterior and other elements and parts of buildings that consume energy can help to minimize the energy waste and to maximize the energy efficiency of buildings. Existing smart houses projects and systems focus on saving energy but they do not provide the efficient system of control over the use of energy and the consumption of energy by different elements of the building or equipment. In other words, the distinct feature of the innovative system is the focus on the optimization of the performance of each element of the building to maximize the efficiency of the energy consumption that will make households and other buildings energy efficient and, thus, will cut the energy consumption consistently. In addition, the new system will not just optimize the use of the energy by the building but also allow users to sell out the excess of energy accumulated by solar batteries. Continue reading

Working In Medicine (Without Being A Nurse)

Many people who want to jump into the healthcare profession are not particularly interested in the field of nursing, where the work can be backbreaking, very dramatic or very dull. It can also involve internal medicine, which may not be your cup of tea.

So, what do you do? If you’re looking for rewarding work, but don’t really care for the sight of blood or have worries about the heavy lifting involved in nursing, try these technical job ideas out for size. After all, income levels for peripheral healthcare technicians, such as radiation therapist or sonogram technician are holding up well, because of the training involved and the high demand.

Here are some job ideas for smart folks who don’t necessarily care for a traditional job as a nurse or a doctor:

Healthcare administration

Hospitals and clinics still require office managers, who make vital decisions on how to allocate funds or whom to hire. Often these jobs involve community-wide budgeting decisions, simply because it is unwise for a hospital to invest a million dollars into the same piece of equipment a rival hospital down the block is also thinking of buying. Salaries for hospital administrators run from $50,000 to $150,000, depending on the size of the hospital. Small clinics also require administrators, generally called office managers.

The role of aerodynamics in sport

Aerodynamics stems from fluid dynamics, the study of fluid flow. It concerns itself with the motion of air, especially the way air interacts with solid objects.

Without our extensive knowledge into aerodynamics, the world would look extremely different to how it appears today. Flying would be non-existent, driving would be considerably harder, and even sport would suffer.

The far reach of aerodynamics is quite staggering. Its role in sports can be decisive at times. Below are some of the supports that rely heavily on aerodynamic exploitation. Continue reading

Inventions Science Still Owes Us in 2015

Science evolves at an incredible rate. We have realized more in the last few decades than all things the bright minds of the previous centuries have realized altogether. A man has stepped on the surface of the moon in our lifetime, and possibly another one will set foot on Mars before we pass away. But there are still things that have been predicted that science still owes us – inventions that have never been built. Here are a few.

1. True holograms

Holograms were always a thing of science fiction movies. Villains have tricked us into believing they were there, when they were only projected. The Enterprise D had an awesome holodeck – something I think everyone would love to see finally built – that projected lifelike images of people and places on board an interstellar journey. Even the infamous Back to the Future II has featured a holographic ad for Jaws 19. But science has still not provided us with a real life hologram.

Not that there were no attempts to create one, but the closest anyone has gotten to an actual hologram was IO2 Technology with its famous Heliodisplay. Augmented reality and VR might viable alternatives, but both of them require devices to be worn – but I still would like to see an actual hologram in other places than movie and TV screens.

Technical Education in Ukraine

Young people realize how important it is to have a good education. Only by getting a decent education and skills, it is possible to withstand a tough competition of today’s highly competitive job market. The quality of education you can get depends on the university you choose, its educational process and faculty. These abilities you can get to go to study for foreign students in Ukraine in the technical universities.

Many school graduates aspire to get technical education, as it opens numerous opportunities when it comes to a dream work search. Upon getting technical or IT education, graduates have excellent chances to find a well-paid job and start a good career. However, before you start gaining profit, it is necessary to make certain investments in the education. Modern applicants have lots of options when it comes to choosing the best higher educational establishment and they are not limited by the boundaries of their countries only. Ukraine is in the list of world’s most popular destinations for getting quality technical education. Continue reading
