Do it in Barcelona Job profiles Solar energy installations planner
There will be increasingly more photovoltaic installations all over the country, so it will be necessary to do more projects. My job consists of designing photovoltaic installations and this means a study of sites with the potential factors for a photovoltaic station, place, latitude, temperature, fog, possible influence of shadows, capacity studies to see how much power it is going to be possible to install at that place, design of the projects, layout of plates on the surface, energy production calculations, etc. Travel is unavoidable. We've got to move around a lot because before.
Making any installation we need to know very where the site is going to be carried out. To do this work it is necessary to have a technical base. It would be necessary to have a level of engineering, because there are a lot of different subjects, such as mechanical design, electrical design, use of quite complex computer tools, and so you need a good technical basis, an engineering one. You have to be continuously updating your knowledge because everything that you are working with is being modified. You have to constantly study what is appearing in the market in order to.
The Solar Industry Is Driving The U.S. Economy
In 2015, the American solar industry added jobs 12 times faster than the rest of the economy. In fact, it's grown 123 since 2010, and the industry keeps expanding! Last year, Obama announced a new program to train veterans to work in the solar industry. And recently, Congress actually extended a tax credit for solar investment. With that tax credit, some estimate that, by 2020, the US solar industry will double the number of jobs and almost quadruple its capacity. Now, isn't that something California just became the first state to ban antibiotics in livestock.
Energy 101 Feedstocks for Biofuels and More
Nearly a billion dollars a day. That's how much we spend on oil imports in the U.S. oil that powers our nation's transportation systems and industries. But here's something to think about a strong biofuels industry could meet much of our demand. Biofuels are made from organic materials, or biomass, grown in our own fields and forests. A booming biofuels industry would also keep a lot of the money we spend on imported oil in the country. Plus, it would reduce our dependence on foreign oil and create jobs in rural America. In fact, we can use homegrown biomass to replace.
Or supplement almost every product that comes from a typical barrel of crude oil. These are things like gasoline, diesel, jet fuel and other consumer products, like plastics. Much of our imported oil could be replaced with sustainable, renewable biofuels and bioproducts made in the U.S.A. Check this out. This is the BillionTon Update study by the U.S. Department of Energy. This study found that potential biomass resources could produce about 85 billion gallons of biofuels a year. That's about a third of the oil we use. OK. So what kinds of plant materials or.
Feedstocks can be converted to fuels, and where will they come from America is already using biomass that comes from agriculture and forest operations across the country. These are nonfood plants grown specifically for energy. American farms all across the U.S. can produce a wide variety of energy crops. These are plants that are grown because of their high energy content crops like switchgrass, or fastgrowing hybrid poplar trees. And energy crops can also be grown on marginal, degraded, or underused agricultural land, helping farms expand and become more productive.
Agricultural waste can even be converted into biofuels. Look at this. Farmers can gather and sell corn stalks and wheat straw to be converted to biofuels, making their lands even more profitable. This is nonedible plant material left over from crop harvests that's been collected from farmland instead of going to waste. So how do you take plants and make them into fuels and other products No matter what kind of plant you start with, the first steps are to break them down. The U.S. Department of Energy, partnering with private industry, is making these steps a.
Lot more efficient and affordable. Together, they're developing new machinery and processes specific to the various biomass crops. This equipment is harvesting bailing, grinding, and condensing these raw plants into energyready materials. Materials like these energydense pellets, ready for the biorefinery. From there, energyready biomass feedstocks are transported to one of many biorefineries sprouting up in communities across the country. Here, they can be further broken down, converted into biofuels and made ready for use. Homegrown biomass feedstocks creating jobs in rural America generating clean, renewable fuels and reducing our dependence on foreign oil.
Working in Publishing at the RSC
Music pause gtgt Sophia Anderton The RSC is a really friendly place to work. There are lots and lots of different people working here and a lot of people join the graduate training scheme and everyone gets on really well, there is a really good atmosphere around the office. gtgt Rob Eagling I look after a team on the development side of the general chemistry portfolio, that is three journals chemical communications, chemical science, chemical society review. Our role is everything prior to submission, so we are the outward facing part.
Of the journals. We do a lot of commissioning, getting people to write, making contacts, dealing with editorial boards, going to conferences both nationally and internationally. Very much focussed on getting the very best content for the journals we have. gtgt Sophia Anderton Since I joined the RSC I have had three different jobs. I started as an assistant editor where I was reporting to a managing editor. About a year later I was promoted to deputy managing editor. Several years later I was promoted to assistant manager of the editorial production department primarily.
Looking after peer review across the RSC journals. gtgt Rob Eagling I have been at the RSC for 10 years, I love working here. There has been lots of opportunity for me to move up within the organisation. I think they reward people who are committed and work hard. All the members of the team of publishing editors are working with very intelligent people. gtgt Sophia Anderton Additionally I have lots of editorial meetings with my team, where we discuss manuscripts about their suitability for the journal, discussing decisions on reports that referees have.
Provided. I also meet with various other colleges in different departments, their role is the development of the journal and commissioning lots of the work and obviously if they are going if they are going out commissioning work we're then dealing with the papers. We have to interact closely to make sure we are working together. After a paper is accepted we edit the papers for English content and also consistency in the chemistry, after that the authors get sent a proof and checking for any proof corrections. We then apply them to the manuscript we then publish the papers on the.
Web immediately and then gather them together in issues when they get published in print at a later date. gtgt Rob Eagling On the development side we work really hard to get the papers to come in and Sophia and her team do a tremendous job of actually getting those papers through the system as quickly as possible dealing with authors, referees and then publishing them to the highest expectations we have at the RSC. gtgt Sophia Anderton I have been at the RSC for 6 years now and in that time there has been a lot growth. The number of journals that.
DIY Watermelon Phone Charger Man vs. Pin Pinterest Test 51
Well, well, well. We meet again. All right. Suggested over and over and over again by BeautyBy Bella week after beep week, the goddamned charge your phone with a watermelon pin. PinOMeter, come on. Bullshit. Whoa, whoa, whoa, what Really If it's on the Internet, it's got to be true. So I picked myself up a large bowl, plopped in my watermelon followed by some ice and some cold water. Then I added a bunch of salt. Now I'm not sure why I added the salt, but I guess it makes the water.
Colder just like it makes water boil faster. I don't beep know. So I mixed it up, I stirred it around, and I let it sit there for a while letting the watermelon get really cold. And then I took out my phone. Now I'm using an iPhone 6 for this experiment. I have my charger here. You can see, the whole cord. I'm not trying to trick you or anything. I picked a good spot. I plugged it in and nothing. Absolutely nothing. Maybe it's not cold enough or there's not enough salt to produce the electricity needed.
Now it did say that the watermelon needed to be ice cold, so I'm going to give it a few more minutes and then I'm going to add some more ice and some more salt. Same thing. I found a good spot, I plugged it in, and nothing. Nothing is happening whatsoever. Still not believing that the core temperature of this watermelon was the right temperature, I decided to leave it in the ice for another half hour. I added some more electric salt and some more alkalinecharged water. After finding the coldest spot on the watermelon,.
I plugged it in and what What the beep How the beep does that work That's beep crazy. Here's the whole cord, no trickery. Wow. I am impressed. There you go. The beep watermelon phone charger. Be sure that you leave your suggestions in the comments below. I'll see you around here next time. Come on. Really Are you living on another beep planet where watermelons beep produce electricity Oh, I forgot my charger at home. Let me just stop off at the supermarket and grab a beep watermelon. This doesn't work nor does any other fruit really. I tried. An avocado, ripe and ready to charge.
Cell Phone Bans Dont Make Roads Safer!
This episode of Dnews is brought to you by Ting Mobile that Makes Sense. More and more states are banning cellphone use while driving but is it actually effective Hey guys, Tara here for Dnews and since 2008, California has had a ban on all handheld cellphone use while driving. Previous studies using driving simulators, have found that people who talk on a cellphone while driving are equally as impaired as people driving while intoxicated. Although none of those studies have been conducted on actual drivers so it's possible the.
Statistics change when someone gets behind the wheel. In any case, a new study from the University of Colorado Boulder, shows that the ban in California has been largely ineffective and there's been no decrease in traffic accidents since the law was put into place. Researchers looked at the rates of accidents in California for the 6 months leading up to the ban, and compared it to the number of accidents in the 6month period after. They chose that relatively small window of time, so they could avoid confounding variables.
That might impact their numbers, like the introduction of safer cars on the road, or the reduction in the number of drivers, due to things like economic recession and rising gas prices. They also accounted for precipitation levels which are known to increase accident rates. The purpose of the study was to see if the ban was effective, but the fact that it's not raises a lot of questions about why that may be. According to the author of the study, Dr. Daniel Kaffine, there are several possible reasons. The most obvious one, would be that people simply aren't complying with the.
Law although similar bans have been enacted in other states, and they seem to be effective there. If this is really the reason, then logic dictates that increasing the fines associated with the ban at least in California could produce better results. Another possible theory, is that handsfree devices which are still allowed under the law could be just as distracting as handheld cell phones. And there are studies out there that corroborate that. It's also possible that the type of people who drive recklessly with cellphones are.
Just prone to distracted driving, no matter what. So even if they're not using their cell phones they could be fiddling with other things, like the radio or a GPS device. Kaffine says that more research needs to be done to figure out why the number of traffic accidents hasn't decreased since the ban was put into place and that doing so could lead to more effective policies in the future. I think it's safe to say that as long as you're not using them while driving, cellphones.
Are a pretty awesome invention. But you know what's not awesome Paying your monthly cellphone bill. It's expensive, it's confusing So what if there was a better way Well with Ting, there absolutely is. Ting is a new mobile phone service that puts the power back in your hands.

SolarLayer Every Surface is a Solar Panel
Hi, I'm Luke. And I'm here to show you one of the coolest most revolutionary things you'll see in your life. Do you see this road It looks like a normal road. It isn't. It's Magic! It happens that if I put a low voltage bulb in it. It lights Up! It turns on! The road is generating electricity. By itself. All the way. Can you imagine what that means For the last four years we have been researching and developing a nano molecular technology we now call the Solar Layer.
The SolarLayer can be mixed with the standard and industrialized Pavement fabrication process Transforming roads to low voltage electricity generators If we use this technology in a responsible way During the next 20 to 25 years Every road on earth can become A solar panel Solving all our energy requirements No need for coal burning, Gas burning Biodiesel use and no need. For nuclear power. Clean Water, clean Soil and clean Air Cheap, green energy for all of us. Especially for the third world, that relies mainly on nonrenewable energies. Now. Pavement is deployed by governments, you might say.
Then what about ourselves, in a smaller scale It turns out that the solar layer can be mixed with house paintings too Your roof, your walls, your ceiling Indoor and outdoor, can all generate electricity The Big Picture is. That every constructed surface on the planet Can become an electric generator With the proper development, it can even Be placed inside glass windows If deployed in a large scale We can start a green energy revolution And it can completely change The way we think about our global energy supplies One in a production line.
Solar Layer will be cheap and accessible to everyone Now, there is one more thing. Every day, we can be reminded how we Coexist with nature And how we must cherish and protect that relationship For the future of our humanity So many of today global conflicts go around energy So we know that this technology has the potential to revolutionize the world Reduce conflicts between nations And give peace, a chance. To reach this point, we had to invent Several technologies and put thousands of hours In research and analysis.
