Building Integrated Photovoltaics (BIPV) Market Promising Growth Opportunities and Forecast 2017-2025

Photovoltaics is one of the most promising arenas among renewable energy technologies. Ensuring there are no concerns related to environmental hazards and energy shortage, photovoltaics (PV) is an ideal way of directly converting sunlight into electricity.  In building integrated photovoltaics, the photovoltaic elements have become an integral part of the building. A number of photovoltaics designers and experts in the U.S., Japan, and Europe are exploring newer ways of incorporating solar energy in buildings. In a building integrated photovoltaics systems, a photovoltaic system is built by assembling several individual collectors, known as ‘modules’, mechanically and electrically into an array. A building integrated photovoltaics system integrates these modules onto the surface of the building, such as the façade or the roof. Apart from adding architectural appeal to the building, the building integrated photovoltaics system saves considerable amount of material and electricity, simultaneously bringing down the use of fossil fuels and the consequent harmful emissions. Building integrated photvoltaics could be used in off-grid, stand-alone systems as well as with utility grids. ...

Future SMD LED rollouts targeting high-contrast LED displays will be in 0505, 0606 and 0808 packages. Larger units popular in lighting and backlighting applications are a staple. LEDs in conventional SMD packages remain a strong category despite the rise of rival COB and chip scale package or CSP types. These are expected to still be the default technology in lights, backlighting and LED displays in the next one or two years, which is why most mainland China manufacturers will continue to raise output and pursue further product miniaturization. More local companies will put emphasis on the development of 0505, 0606 and 0808 models for small-pitch LED displays with high definition and contrast. Although these sizes can be sourced, the predominant output consists of those in 5050, 3528 and 2835, which makers said continue to be in demand in l...

Famous LAX Time Tower Display Runs Like Clockwork with New RealMotion Server

RealMotion hardware refresh breathes new life into LAX Time Tower attraction while delivering flexible content management system. Los Angeles International Airport, the world’s fourth-busiest airport, continued a massive installation of digital displays and technologies in the Tom Bradley International Terminal that kicked off in 2013 with the 72-foot-tall Time Tower. The four-sided LED Time Tower has received a significant upgrade with the integration of a RealMotion server that “enables generative and interactive content, while simplifying content management and creation,” according to a company press release on the installation. That means, no matter how busy you are or how quickly you have to run to catch your next flight in LAX, you’ve definitely noticed the Time Tower. The addition of the RealMotion server “increases the fundamental value of the LED display by streamlining operation and adding flexibility,” according to RealMotion director Geoffrey Platt. “The LAX Time Tower quickly became a world-famous digital media project because, in some measure, it instigated the design currents we still see today,” he said. “However, even the most high-profile installations can be ...

Clinical and Laboratory Testing for Trichomonas vaginalis Infection

Trichomonas vaginalis infection is highly prevalent in the United States and worldwide. Traditional clinical diagnostic methods fail to identify more than half of these infections that, if left untreated, can result in adverse pregnancy outcomes and an exacerbated risk of both acquisition and transmission of HIV. Women bear a disproportionate amount of the burden of these infections, and testing among populations at risk for this disease should be provided. Molecular technologies have expanded our capacity for laboratory-based detection of infection and can be used on samples already being collected for chlamydia/gonorrhea screening. Trichomonas vaginalis is the causative agent of the most common nonviral sexually transmitted infection (STI) worldwide. However, our understanding of the epidemiology of trichomonas infection contains substantial gaps since this infection is often not screened for in large, population-based studies and the disease is not well monitored by public health agencies. The prevalence of Trichomonas infection is best documented in the United States, where the rates are consistently higher than those of Chlamydia trachomatis and Neisseria gonorrhoeae infect...

Stainless Steel Etching: A Faster Way to Manufacture Complex Precision Components

As a photo chemical etching specialist for over 50 years, Precision Micro has developed etchant chemistries and processes that make etching possible on a wide range of metals. Stainless steel, however, remains the number one choice for many of the company’s customers due to its versatility, the numerous grades available, and the vast array of finishes. Precision Micro’s stock steel grades include austenitic (300) and ferritic martensitic (400) series, mild steel, electrical steel, maraging steel, high-carbon (spring) steel, precipitation hardened (17-4, 17.7) steel, and duplex and super duplex steel, as well as specialist grades including Sandvik Chromflex strip steels and Uddeholmstrip flapper valve steel. Chemical etching produces precision components by selectively removing metal through a photo-resist mask. When compared with conventional sheet metalworking, it has a number of inherent advantages, key among which are its ability to produce parts without degrading material properties – no force or heat is used during processing – and almost limitless part complexity as component features are removed simultaneously using etchant chemistries. The tooling for etching is di...

Cognac jumelée avec une ville chinoise productrice d’alcool

Le cognac se marie très bien avec l’alcool de riz chinois le jianjiu. Non pas dans le cadre d’une recette de cocktail, mais dans celui d’un jumelage administratif. La ville de cognac a en effet conclu cet été un jumelage avec la ville de Bozhou, située dans le nord-ouest de la Chine, réputée pour sa production de jianjiu, un alcool local, et de baijio, un autre alcool blanc de céréale. C’est la ville chinoise qui est à l’initiative de ce rapprochement. “Ils sont attirés par le cognac, qui est très consommé en Chine” explique Michel Gourinchas, le maire de Cognac. ”Nous avons eu plusieurs propositions de jumelage, avec différentes villes en Chine. Cela a mis longtemps à se faire” poursuit-il. PERSPECTIVES ÉCONOMIQUESLes deux maires signent un mémorandum d’amitié à Cognac en novembre 2014. Michel Gourinchas se rend quelques mois plus tard à son tour à Bozhou, où il découvre les alcools de riz. ”Même s’il n’y a que peu de rapport entre le cognac et ces alcools blancs distillés, les Chinois ont su nous raconter leur produit. L’histoire de leurs maisons de production, avec l’importance de leurs maîtres de chais, ressem...

Why beetles are the most important organisms on the planet | Richard Jones | Environment

From the minuscule to the mighty, tree-dwellers to pond-swimmers, millions of beetle species reveal a wealth of information about the world we live in The phrase “they come in all shapes and sizes” could have been coined just for the Coleoptera — the beetles. At a fragile 0.325mm long, the Colombian featherwing (Scydosella musawasensis) has a good claim to being one of the smallest free-living insects in the world, and is tinier than many single-celled creatures. At the other end of the spectrum, the obviously named titan beetle, a huge Brazilian longhorn that can snap a pencil in its jaws, reaches 167mm – about 500 times the size. Coleoptera range from the narrow sylph-like elegance of the mould beetle (Adistemia watsoni) crawling up the musty wall of a museum store-room, to the burnished brass bauble of the golden leaf beetle (Chrysolina banksi), cumbersomely crawling over the black horehound plant it feeds on. They occur from seashore to mountain top. Around the south and west coasts of Britain, the tiny pale ground beetle (Aepus robinii) survives in silt-filled cracks in seashore rocks, and is covered up by the tide twice a day. Meanwhile the rainbow leaf beetle (Chrysolina ...

Commentary: 3D-Printed Guns Aren’t as Dangerous as You Think

Earlier this year, controversy arose over whether Defense Distributed could publish blueprints for 3D-printed guns online. While the company was ultimately blocked from doing so, the controversy brought to light the difficult questions surrounding the safety of 3D printing. But are 3D-printed guns as dangerous as they sound? The answer is more complicated than it seems on its face. A 3D-printed gun ultimately functions just like any other gun. The key difference is that whereas manufactured firearms are mass-produced in traditional factories, a 3D-printed gun is created at home (or at the office, or possibly even at the public library). These guns start with a digital file, which can be created with CAD (computer-aided design) software or downloaded from the Internet. Using this file, a 3D printer can create all gun components, one layer at a time. 3D-printed guns can be created from metal, and when assembled, can look and feel exactly like a factory-manufactured gun. More often, however, they are printed from plastic materials. This generally renders them shorter-lived weapons, but also makes them undetectable by metal detectors—which is worrisome for obvious reasons. But 3D-pr...

Everlane Day Glove ReKnit flats review: another comfortable hit

The number one best-selling women’s item at Everlane, a simple leather flat known as the Day Glove, sits on an impossibly high pedestal. Among its accolades at Insider Picks: the most comfortable Everlane shoe, the best women’s flat you can buy, and one of the best products, period, that we tried in 2018. To reach the upper echelons of Picks fame is of course not without cause. These flats are ultra-soft and flexible, with tiny air vents for breathability and a convenient back pull tab. They now come in 16 colors, and as I write this, I’m seriously considering getting a second pair in a cool light blue. Just as we were considering penning another love letter to these fan club-worthy flats, a new generation of Day Gloves arrived to delight us. They’re called the Day Glove ReKnit, retailing at $98 and made from nine renewed plastic bottles, and they’re as amazing as the original Day Glove. Their lightweight and breathable knit uppers, which have a ribbed pattern that reminds us of our favorite summer cardigans, are combined with cushioned leather insoles that let you walk in the shoes for hours on end. Like Everlane’s other popular Day styles, ...
