How Do You Tie a Rope Curtain Tieback?

You can use a large cup hook, it's the least expensive way. Also in the curtain hardware department you will find the more ornate curtain pulls that connect to the wall that are fancier, they almost look like a sideways "C". Wamart, Lowes, any store like that will have these.

1. Can Jump Rope lose BELLY fat ?

Wehn i was your age.....i had the EXACT same problem. That belly fat that you have now WILL go me! Yuo just gained that weight because of hormones. Now, unfortunately, in most cases, you wont be able to lose those child bearing hips for a while, but yes, jumping rope will help you lose weight! But even better, if you have a hoolahoop. ...its WAY better! Jumping rope makes you pant which circulates blood, and that helps you lose weight too. Make sure when you are trying to lose wieght that you eat at LEAST 5 veggies a day as well as 3 fruits.........i know its a drag, but i lost around 5 kilos in a month when i was ur age JUST from only eating tons of veg's and fruit and lots of water:) Hope this helps!!!.

2. What are some good cardio options?

dancing, walking, jump rope, swimming, bike riding, aerobics

3. halloween ideas???!!! FAST PLEASE HELP :)?

On year my sister was dirty laundry. She cut a hole out of a small laundry basket, and got like rope to tie it to her body and then she taped socks and stuff on her. It was pretty cool.(:

4. Can JUMP ROPE increase the speed at which SOMEONE RUNS?

Sure jumping rope for is a great exercise but for an hour a day? No coach would tell you to do that. Go do some intervals and vary your exercises. I can not give you a good targeted suggestion without knowing what distance you run for an what your regimen details are. I am guessing since you are talking an hour a day you might be running in excess of ten k. In that case get on they have all sorts of suggested speedwork and i guarantee not a single time will jumping rope for an hour be suggested. If your running 5k or more and your are serious about running i suggest buying the garmin 610 with heart rate monitor from heartratewatchcomany. com. It is $100 off for this week with free shipping and no taxes. It allows yourself. Are 15 second faster sustained miles worth $300 to you?

5. Using Rope Lights for Under Cabinet Lights?

I have not used these, but I have used strings of white Christmas lights .... I simply taped them to the underside of my kitchen cabinets, hidden behind a horizontal front-piece....they were lovely in the evening when I did not want to leave on the big light but needed to go in and out of the kitchen; it made it look so friendly x

6. What is the strongest type of marine rope?


7. During a Battle Royal, when a guy gets thrown over the top rope?

I do not know, ask the script writers

8. Tips and Method in burning fat.?

You can do almost anything that raises your heartrate or makes you sweat! If you can not go to the gym, try other things. Jump rope, clean the house, get outside and run, walk, rake, sweep, or wash your car. These things will obviously not do anything for someone who is really in shape but if you have a lot to lose they are great ways to start. Good luck!.

9. To loose weight, what should I do at the gym?

Pilates and yoga are great toning exercises that also help target core areas people have problems with, including the butt, thighs and stomach. Take two or three pilates courses a week, combined with some cardio (I prefer jumping rope or running for 10- 30 minutes) and some light weight work. As you lose that much weight, it is important for you to keep doing weights and toning activities, otherwise you will have problems with loose skin.

10. what are some things to do outside?

Play basketball, hoola-hoop , play w/ ur dogs (if u have any), run around, sing (i love to do that outside), jump rope, hop-stoch, or make something up! =)

Characterizing the Transplanar and in-plane Water Transport Properties of Fabrics Under Different Sw
The water absorption and transport properties of fabrics are critical to wear comfort, especially for sportswear and protective clothing. A new testing apparatus, namely Forced Flow Water Transport Tester (FFWTT), was developed for characterizing the transplanar and in-plane wicking properties of fabrics based on gravimetric and image analysis technique. The uniqueness of this instrument is that the rate of water supply is adjustable to simulate varying sweat rates with reference to the specific end-use conditions ranging from sitting, walking, running to other strenuous activities. This instrument is versatile in terms of the types of fabrics that can be tested. Twenty four types of fabrics with varying constructions and surface finishes were tested. The results showed that FFWTT was highly sensitive and reproducible in differentiating these fabrics and it suggests that water absorption and transport properties of fabrics are sweat rate-dependent. Additionally, two graphic methods were proposed to map the direction of liquid transport and its relation to skin wetness, which provides easy and direct comparison among different fabrics. Correlation analysis showed that FFWTT results have strong correlation with subjective wetness sensation, implying validity and usefulness of the instrument.FFWTT, diagrammed in , can be divided into two parts: (i) sample stage (square: 12 cm × 12 cm) and (ii) water supply part. The sample stage was made by polytetrafluorethylene (PTFE) to minimize interfacial wicking between the sample and the stage. On top of the stage, the testing specimen was placed in-between two layers of standard material (ADVANTEC filter paper No.1) for examining the direction of water spread. The use of this particular filter paper could be attributed to the following reasons: (i) very good water absorption and transportation, (ii) guaranteed wetting performance with high reproducibility, (iii) flat surface with random fibre arrangement, and (iv) easily purchased at relatively low cost. A compression loading was placed above the sample to ensure even and reproducible contact between the layers. For the water supply part, syringe pump was utilized which enables constant rate of water supply and the rate of water supply is adjustable. The syringe pump and the sample stage were connected by a silicone tube with outer diameter of 3 mm and inner diameter of 1 mm. This tube, acted as a sweat gland, was used to deliver 'perspiration' away from the body. To minimize the gravitational effect on absorption, water was supplied from the bottom to the back side of the sample.Throughout the experiment, water supply was continuous under constant water flow. By switching the setting in the syringe pump, the water flow rate is adjustable to simulate different sweating levels based on the specific end-use. The physiological response (sweat rate) is assumed constant. This is useful when selecting fabric for a particular activity and environmental condition. In this study, water flow rate of 3 ml/h, 10 ml/h and 40 ml/h was investigated which simulates different levels of sweating. The relationship between water flow rate and sweat rate is demonstrated by equation (1). This assumes that sweat was uniformly distributed in our body whilst water was uniformly distributed in the entire fabric surface. Given that the surface area of the testing sample is 0.0144 m and the surface area of human body is 1.8 m , the corresponding sweat rate of human body is 375 ml/h (208 ml/m/h) when the injection speed of syringe pump is 3 ml/h. For 10 ml/h and 40 ml/h water supply, the corresponding sweat rate is 1250 ml/h (694 ml/m/h) and 5000 ml/h (2778 ml/m/h), respectively. With reference to online, the injection speed of syringe pump of 3 ml/h represents gentle walking or driving. On the other hand, the injection speed of 10 ml/h (i.e. sweat rate of 1250 ml/h) represents high speed running. For the injection speed of 40 ml/h, it was set with reference to the water supply rate of another tester, Spontaneous Uptake Water Transport Tester (SUWTT), of which the rate of water supply is fabric-dependent and ranged from 37.37 to 80.66 g/h as shown in online. This simulates extremely high level of work and approximates to the highest sweat rate of human.The targeted injection amount of water was set as 0.6 ml and the injection time varies with the injection speed as calculated by equation (2). The higher the water flow rate, the shorter the injection time is.Based on equation (2), the duration of water supply is 720 seconds at 3 ml/h water supply, 216 seconds at 10 ml/h water supply and 54 seconds at 40 ml/h water supply.Once sweating occurs, the injected water was first contacted with the bottom filter paper, followed by the fabric and the top filter paper. Here, the bottom filter paper acted as a simulated skin helps to dispense the injected water from the sweat gland (water pipe) while the combination with the top filter paper was used for characterizing the transplanar water transport behaviour. Since water absorption and transport ability of the filter papers and the test sample are different, the water gain in each layer varies, contributing to between-layer difference and between-fabric difference. The less or slower absorptive the fabric, the more the water remained on skin and the poorer the wear comfort it provides.Apart from the water flow rate, the pressure loading applied onto the sample was also adjustable in this set up. The applied pressure might be set at a higher level for tight-fitted garment and at a lower level for loose-fitted garment. Preliminary experiments suggest that the applied pressure should not be too low (around 0.5 g/cm) to ensure reproducibility of the test. The selection of pressure loading is demonstrated in the online. With reference to reproducibility and testing sensitivity, external loading of 360 g (2.5 g/cm), which is the same as the setting for the standardized water absorption tester - Gravimetric Absorption Testing System (GATS), was chosen. This loading simulates the condition when a tight-fitted garment is worn.Before the test, the sample was put onto the sample stage and compressed with an external loading. The syringe pump was switched on for a predetermined duration. After injection, the compression plate was removed and layers of textiles were separated immediately. The water gain in each layer was measured by an electronic balance. The spreading pattern of each layer was scanned by an optical scanner and the wetting area in different layers was calculated.In this study, the targeted amount of water injection (i.e. 0.6 ml) was determined with reference to the relevant test in the literature. Since termination of the test was controlled manually, there might be little variation in the injection amount. In order to minimize this variation, the amount of water absorbed by each layer was presented as fraction value. was calculated by the water absorption mass in a specific layer divided by the total absorption amount of the three layers, as shown in equation (3).The transplanar water flow was determined by the water distribution in the top and bottom filter paper. By dividing the amount of water absorption in the top filter paper with the bottom one, an index called '', which has been developed in our previous study, can be determined using equation (4). It is anticipated that this ratio could tell the transplanar wicking ability of the fabric. The higher the ratio, the more the water wicked away from the skin surface and the less the clammy sensation it provides.In addition to the gravimetric measurement, the of each layer, which reflects the in-plane wicking property of fabric, was additionally measured and expressed in cm. The larger the spreading area, the greater the area for sweat evaporation. measures the amount of water within the sample. The calculation of water content of fabric is defined in our previous work and its calculation is shown in equation (5). This parameter is affected by the geometry of the sample with its wetted area, thickness and porosity being considered. In study conducted by Ghali , water content is defined as the fraction of the void space that is filled with liquid. At 100% water content, all void space in the sample is filled with liquid. At 0% water content, there is no liquid presenting in the sample excluding the moisture regain from air. In general, the higher the water content within a fabric, the less comfortable it will be.

The Strange Case of Dr. Alderotti and the Arabic Liquor in Europe
(Note: I am grateful to Dr. Jelena Mrgić and Dr. Gordan Ravančić who responded thoughtfully to the emails of a stranger enquiring about alcohol in the Balkans. All views or errors remain mine.)Many Croatians enjoy sipping a distilled alcoholic beverage called "rakija", a name they no doubt associate with merriment and conviviality. The name and the drink are also connected to the lengthy and serpentine history of alcohol distillation. Less than 200 miles away from the Croatian coast, on the other side of the Adriatic Sea, lived a key figure from the alcoholic annals: Dr. Alderotti. This professor at the University of Bologna wrote about alcohol more than 700 years ago, and was the first to mention water cooling in his distillation procedure[1]. The invention of a process that would distill alcohol efficiently eluded human beings for centuries, and the development of water cooling in the 13th century was a major breakthrough. But despite the geographic proximity to Northern Italy, there are no traces of distilled alcohol in Croatia or the rest of the Balkans until 300 years later. We have to wait for an official Ottoman document from 1586. This official tax register mentions the custom duty charged on distilled alcohol in Vidin, a town located in present-day Bulgaria[2]. This 300 year hiatus is puzzling. You would have expected Dr. Alderotti's revolutionary technology to spread at a faster rate across the neighboring regions of Northern Italy. There was also extensive trade across the Adriatic Sea.One explanation could be the dearth of medieval sources from the Balkans[3]. Under this narrative, the region was enjoying liquors in medieval times, but we simply lost all sources attesting such consumption. There may however be a more plausible explanation. The name "Rakija" derives from an Arabic word meaning "distilled"[4]. It is a close cousin to Turkey's Raki and Lebanon's Araq, two other distilled alcoholic beverages. The Balkans may have imported their liquor-making technology from the East rather than the West.Dr. Alderotti and his peers were developing distilled alcohol purely for medicinal purposes. They produced small quantities of the liquid with sophisticated apparatus and high quality glassware. They probably achieved very high levels of alcohol content. But around the same time, far away east in Central Asia, distillers had developed a technology to produce spirits for conviviality rather than medicinal purposes. They were producing distilled alcohol for consumption during banquets, feasts and parties[5].This eastern technology probably required less sophisticated equipment and produced lower alcohol content than Dr. Alderotti's equipment. But it spread swiftly across geographies, and reached the Balkans around the 16th century. And Croatians understood that sipping Rakija for conviviality purposes is a great medicine too, with all due respect to Dr. Alderotti.[1] Dr. Edmund O. von Lippmann transcribed Dr. Alderotti's Latin writings relating to the distillation of alcohol ("aqua vite"). I was able to find these in "Sudhoffs Archiv für Geschichte der Medizin und der Naturwissenschaften (1913-1914)". The key passage is on page 386. [2] I was unable to find a digital version of the original Ottoman document. I have found a translation written in Serbo-Croat: Dušanka Bojanić, Turski zakoni i zakonski propisi iz XV i XVI veka za Smederevsku, Kruševačku i Vidinsku Oblast (1974). The relevant passage is on page 67 of this document. The author provides the following references for the original document: "Opširni defter Vidinskog Sandžaka iz 1586, godine, fol. 6r-6v Table XI-XII". Vidin is located approximately 600 miles away from Bologna (Italy) according to Google Maps.[3] In her paper, "Wine or Raki — the Interplay of Climate and Society in Early Modern Ottoman Bosnia", Dr. Jelena Mrgić writes about the Central Balkans (Bosnia and Serbia) that "not a single royal or town archive has survived from the Middle Ages".[4] "Rakija" derives from 'Araqi ("عرقي"). The Arabic word could be translated as "sweated", a reference to the similitude between the distillation process and perspiration. [5] A Chinese dietary book dated 1330, the "Yin-Shan cheng-yao", mentions a distilled alcoholic beverage based on wine. See Paul D. Buell, Eugene N. Anderson, A soup for the Qan : Chinese dietary medicine of the Mongol era as seen in Hu Szu-Hui's Yin-shan cheng-yao : introduction, translation, commentary and Chinese text (page 499)How do I keep my dog's water cool on hot days?Ice. That's what I do. And, it works!
What Is the Specific Property of Epoxy Paint ?
Epoxy paint is sometimes known as powder coating. Raw epoxy paint comes in a powder form which is applied electrostatically (sticks with static) to bare metals before being baked at high temperature. Because there is no solvent (paint thinner) involved, the process is environment-friendly (very low air pollution) and resulting coating is much stronger than those achieve by regular paint job. A drawback of epoxy paint is that it usually needs to baked at high temperature.1. what kind of paint can be permanently applied to aluminum alloy car wheels?powder coating would work well. Many colors to choose from2. are the wheels on Michael Waltrip's race cars chrome, or do they just look like it?CB is right. Chrome plating is a coating not a metal, It holds in too much heat and was the reason it was termnated back in the 80's as a wheel type. Powder coating can look like chrome or anodized and not have any effect on wheel or tire temp. Good answer CB3. How do you paint the markings on an AR-15 lower receiver?Powder coating is the most common. You put a positive charge on the item and 'hang it', then shoot negative charged powder on the item - comes in a million colors and you can mix and match. Then it is either let to dry, or, baked. The dry coatings are quick, easy, and inexpensive. The baked ceramic coatings are more durable, cost more, and take an extra day or so to do. Hope this helps.4. Restoring 1924 claw foot tub, erosion on interior?I have a 1927 tub. I have seen tubs that acid drain cleaner was used in and it is not pretty. I would try to find an alternative to epoxy coatings. Powder coating might be a good solution. Look up Eastwood Co and using a heat gun to cure it might be better then just paint.5. How do you paint car rims?Powder coat... The metal is electrostatic-ally charged and a dry (paint)dust is blown at the metal which sticks because of the charged electrons. This is now put in an oven and the dust is melted over the metal in an even coat. The pores in the metal open up due to the heat and form a strong bond with the paint. You can find powder coating in the phone book or google it. It' slightly more expensive but WORTH it. Good luck- Black rims look cooler.6. powder coating?Powder coating is a method that involves painting machinery or any other surface with a high-density and small-particle paints. Check out this site. They have a lot of information on powder coating and are a world leader doing it.7. Best Alloy Wheel Refurbishment Techniques | My Tyre ShopYou often experience accidental scuffing of your alloy wheel. You do not have to worry in this case as alloy wheel repair can make your wheel look brand new. A wide variety of damages are covered under alloy wheel repair that includes scratching, peeling, rim scuffs, corrosion. Each process of repair is different. Your alloy can be refurbished back into a new condition if the damage is not severe. Here are a few techniques that help in alloy refurbishment: In powder coating, the wheel is removed from the car as this is a full refurbishing process. The alloy wheel cleaner is used to clean and degrease the wheel. Sandblasting of the wheel is done that is a process that includes blasting air carrying sand at a high velocity. It is done to clean the tougher particles of alloy wheels. The wheel is degreased again using a cleaner. The rim is heated in an industrial oven this help to releases gases. These gases cause problem while the finishing process. A spray gun is used for powder coating on the alloy wheel. The rim is heated again until the powder coating has a gel-like consistency. The final finishing is done by polishing. Diamond cut alloy has a glossy finish that gives your car a luxurious look. However, these alloy wheels are difficult to repair as it cannot be repaired at home. These require lathe for its repair. A lathe is a machine that can perform various operations like drilling, turning, cutting, and sanding. The wheel is removed from the vehicle. The old layer of paint is removed from the wheel using the machine. The smooth finish is then coated with powder and kept for drying. The lathe is used to cut the thin layer from alloy and finishing is given by polishing. The final step is to heat the alloy wheel in an industrial oven. This process of alloy wheel refurbishment Coventry starts from cleaning the wheel with cleaning liquid. This removes all the dirt and grease. To smooth the alloy wheel using sandpaper. Use a cloth to wipe the dust and then keep it for drying. The damaged area is to be filled with fillers and then smooth the area to avoid any lumps. You can even use filler sprays and if the damage is deep then you must apply the spray several times. The filler must be left for setting and then again smooth it out using sandpaper. Use a wet cloth to remove the dust. The final step includes painting and polishing. The paint should be applied in thin layers and let it dry before you apply the second layer. You can even apply lacquer this seals the paint. Apply a thin layer first and then allow it to dry then apply another coat. It also protects the wheel from damage.
Chemistry, Metal Properties. Water, Chemical Element, Gas?
If you do your own work rather than post it here, you will do better1. Properties of water ? help?This property is known as "capillary action," also called "wicking." It is a property that chemists take advantage of when using a technique called thin layer chromatography. Another way to think of it is by thinking about the wick in a lantern that burns oil - the oil reservoir sits below the flame, and small amounts of oil are wicked up and burned when you light the lantern. In plants this property is extremely important, as capillary action is what allows them to soak up water from the ground and transport it high into their branches and leaves. If you have your chemistry textbook handy, it will describe the intermolecular forces which relate to this and help you understand why the different materials (paper towel, cotton, wool, spandex, and silk) take different amounts of time to become wet, even though they each have 1 cm of material in the water.2. What are the six properties of water?This Site Might Help You. RE: What are the six properties of water? Please list six properties of water, their explanation, and their benefits in life. An example would be: Ice Floats.3. How do fish survive during winter in ponds? How do the specific properties of water affect the fish?The water cools down, this in turn slows down the fish's metabolism. They do not move as much and do not need to take in as much oxygen or water, thus they save energy. Their bodies live off the fatty reserves they've put on during Summer and Autumn.4. Describe how the properties of water molecules contribute to the upward movement of water through a tall tree?Water molecules have three main functions that aid in its upward movement in a tree . They include: 1) Dispersion forces 2) Dipole-Dipole interactions 3) Hydrogen bonding (main function)5. Explain physical properties of water in a pond/lake that influence the rate of photosynthesis of aquatic plant?The actual properties of water help shop aquatic organisms lubricated and forestall them from drying out. The chemical properties of water help the organisms breathe (via way of gills, or in spite of) besides as have a relentless pH to allow for the survival of the creature, so as that it does not die. in case you alter the pH or the chemical makeup of the water (via dumping pollutants or something) then the creature can die.6. Describe the importance to living organism of the following properties of water?iv) Because water is less dense when it is frozen, lakes and rivers freeze on the top layer only, because it does not sink. This shell of ice blocks out the surrounding environment's sub-zero air and allows the water underneathe to remain liquid. This allows water organisms to live through the winter (they would all die if their river or lake was ice from surface to base. ).7.

Kodak's Strategic Transformation and Brand Revitalization --- China Intellectual Property
When speaking of Kodak, most people first think of cameras and film. However, for Kodak's employees, this is both glorious and ironic. Since 2003, when the Company announced that it would "march into the digital world," it has successfully evolved from being a giant of traditional imaging products to a global powerhouse of digital products. Nevertheless, little has been stated or publicly known about this rebirth. To understand Kodak's phenomenal success, China IP interviewed Mr. Xu Silin, chief representative of Kodak (China) Investment Company Limited and chief government officer of Kodak Greater China. In his early years, Mr. Xu was a reporter with the Economic Daily. Later he went abroad to study, worked as financial analyst and investment consultant in New York, and subsequently joined Hill & Knowlton (China) Public Relations as the deputy director of the California and Hong Kong/China offices, responsible for government relations, investment and business development. After leaving Hill & Knowlton, he joined Lucent China as PR Director, in charge of media relations, advertising and government relations. Prior to joining Kodak, he was general manager of Corporate Planning and Communications for IBM's Greater China Group. From Traditional to Digital - the Success of Strategic Transformation The 130-year history of Kodak is a timeline of patents. As early as 1879, Kodak's founder George Eastman applied for patent protection for his invention - a plate coating machine in London, and the following year obtained a patent in America. The manufacturing of dry plates based on this patented technology proved to be a great success. The development of Kodak has been achieved by constant technical innovations and intellectual property protection. Since its founding in 1880, Kodak has lead the global imaging market and been synonymous with cameras and especially film. "The development of digital technology greatly cornered the traditional film industry. With the continuous slump of the sales of films from 2001, Kodak's traditional film industry shrank at an annual rate of 8%. Under the perilous situation, Kodak began to look for breakthroughs, for technological improvement and business diversification. Meanwhile, it rolled up sleeves for strategic transformation," said Mr. Xu. Regardless of Kodak's great success in the film business, it became the biggest obstacle on its road to digitalization. "We have experienced from a high-profiting period to such a downturn. Both we and our company have been through struggles to face and accept the reality. Transformation is not something that happens overnight. We will come across all kinds of difficulties in the process: blames from consumers and customers, and challenges from competitors," stated Xu. The makeover faced extreme difficulties at the beginning. In October 2005, due to the heavy payments brought by restructuring and the continuous decline of revenue from traditional products, Kodak suffered a fourth-quarter economic loss. The net deficiency for the third quarter of 2005 was USD 1.03 billion, a historic new high. Additionally, there were rumors of a purchase by HP. Due to fierce competition in the digital camera market and the enormous cost pressure, moreover in order to further improve profitability and productivity of digital products, Kodak chose in August 2006 to transfer the production, storage and transportation of digital cameras to Flextronics International; and shift a part of the design and development work to the Singapore enterprise. Although Kodak eliminated digital camera production, it took the reins in the high-end system design, contour and appearance design, user experience, and the R&D of digital cameras. In addition, Kodak reserved all intellectual property rights. After the growing pains, Kodak made substantive advancement in its digital business. "In 2003, the digital business only contributed to 30% of the total sales. But now, more than 75% of the products on our product line are about digital products. Digital cameras, digital picture frames, digital video and such consumption products have been expanding their markets; commercial scanners, computer-to-plate, work flow software, digital printers and such commercial products are also emerging on a large scale. From 2003 to 2009, the company maintained more than 10% annual growth rate in its digital business. Even in 2009 when the whole world was swept by financial recession, Kodak stood out and presented us with a 12% growth rate. These figures show that Kodak's transformation has successfully passed its initial stage," Mr. Xu said with pride. "We have initiated a big move at the moment. Formerly, we simply gave the trademark use right to over 6,000 stores; but now, we implement the franchising system," Mr. Xu told the reporter. In the late 1990s after Kodak made headway in China, it established Kodak Express in an overwhelming way in the country's tier-1 and tier-2 cities. Within a few years, the number of Kodak Expresses hit 10,000, and its service network claimed to be only second to China's mail system. However after 2003, the impact of digital imaging forced Kodak to change its focal point The bewildered company had little time or energy to take care of the numerous and scattered Kodak Expresses, which following their parent company, were caught in a dilemma and had to fend by themselves. Mr. Xu told our reporter: "In the process of digitalization, some personalized and fashionable service needs are gradually surfaced. Some customers like going to the stores to get service. Some would rather stay at home and transmit the photos via the Internet to the stores. And there are still some who want to print the photos by themselves. Kodak is providing all these services." Mr. Xu further disclosed that after the implementation of the franchising system, Kodak Express will introduce the "central cabinet" idea, where consumers may get personalized service via the Internet or by on-site participation. Moreover, the "convenience store" service pattern will be introduced to provide convenient and diversified services to the residents in the neighborhood. "We have set up seven or eight flagship stores last year, and the profitability is averaged at 15-25%," said Mr. Xu. From B2C to B2B - the Rise of Commercial Products According to Mr. Xu, most of Kodak's products target two groups: the consumer market and commercial market. This is what we usually describe as B2C business and B2B business. Two groups respectively control these two businesses: The Consumer Digital Imaging Group (CDG) and Graphic Communications Group (GCG). In the B2C field, Kodak supplies digital cameras, digital photo frames and digital videos, and provides consumers the special experience of discovering beauty and sharing happiness. In the B2B field, Kodak has developed computer-to-plate (CTP), digital printing, work flow software and the commercial scanner. Besides CDG and GCG, Kodak also has a FPG (Film & Photo Group), which operates the company's traditional business in the image entertainment area. Additionally Kodak provides professional services to photographers, photojournalists, photographic studios and photo shops. "Digital printing has a very promising growth prospect. In the aspect of laser digital printing (digital xerography), Kodak occupies the high-end market and provides corporate clients one of the best products of the industry. In the field of ink-jet digital printing, Kodak could hardly find a rival. Especially in the printing of variable data, such as invoice and lottery, Kodak owns a majority of market shares. Besides the ordinary black and white ink-jet printers, Kodak has also developed color ink-jet printers used for bill printing by banks and other institutions. Now we are popularizing a Stream digital ink-jet technology, which is a core ink-jet technology exclusively owned by Kodak. stream digital ink-jet printers are applicable to mass and streamline productions, and are completely compatible with variable information. It is expected that owing to the low cost, high efficiency and the offset printing-comparable precision, Stream digital ink-jet printers will finally bring a revolution to the traditional printing industry. In Kodak, we can say that all B2B business under the operation of GCG is about digital," Mr. Xu said. "Kodak positions its core strategy in 'gaining sustainable growth based on the superiorities in the crossed section of material science and digital imaging science.' In fact, Kodak is incomparable in the two fields of technology and intellectual property. This core strategy may be regarded as the continuation of Kodak's advantages, and the core of this core strategy is to develop commercial products," said Mr. Xu.1. What yields a better print from B&W negatives: photo printing or digital printing from a scan?Scanning a negative and then digitally printing it allows for color management, so even if it is a B&W image, your tones will be faithfully reproduced (or can be tuned). You can also remove certain amount of noise, grain, etc.If you develop the photo, your development method, selection of paper, etc. will determine the end result. Since paper has slightly non-linear response to light (and same is with the negative), plus your exposition time, temperature, etc. can vary, your reproducibility of the original image is worsened.The only time you would go for paper print if you have a special negative and paper with larger dynamic range than current CMOS sensors in scanners. Note however that you can rescan the same negative multiple times, and with some filters, you can recreate the film's dynamic range. Moreover, multiple scans and post-processing can help further removing noise2. HomeDoveton Press Print Services in Bristol was born out of a necessity for expert litho and digital printing, with an old fashioned service. We have been a family run business for 50 years, with loyal staff who believe in attention to detail as much as you do. Doveton Press continually strives to keep up to date with new printing technology and environmentally friendly processes, which has kept us at the top of our field. Our directors, team of estimators, reprographics team, printers and finishers are always happy to talk you through any questions you may have.3. what is the difference between laser printing,digital printing and inkjet?Can anyone help?Digital printing is a catch-all phrase that means printing anything of of a computer file. Specificaly, laser printing is a form of xerography, much like photocopy printing. The exact same technology is used to make the image. The digital image is used to place an electical static charge on parts of a metal drum. Toner attaches to the parts of the drum with the charge, and then transfered to paper. Heat is applied to make the toner stain permanent. An ink jet simply "sprays" a tiny dot of ink on the paper. Lots and lots of dots will make the final image.
My Self Propelled Lawn Mower Consumes a Lot of Gas. Is There Anyway It Can Be Reduced?
Check for a gas leak - let mower stand on a dry surface for an hour or so then check the surface for gas drips. If found, wipe gas lines, valves and carburetor with paper towel looking for leak. Tighten any loose screws, connections on tank, carb, fuel line. Check if a "tune-up" is needed - is air cleaner clean? sparkplug clean, correct type? It's easy and inexpensive to replace air cleaner and sparkplug.1. What Causes Valves to go out of Spec?For valve clearances to change the position of the valve with the respect to the rockers much change. Here is a list of some of the main causes of valve clearance changes: Half Ring Squish Closer shim deformation (where the half rings seat) Valve Seat wear (worsened by valve guide wear) Head wear (where valves seat into the head) Rocker Arm wear Cam wear My experience has seen the valve clearance changes to decrease as the miles increase, if the valves are set properly. The valve adjustment within the first 6,000/7500 and 12,000/15,000 miles are the most important ones to do. Excessive clearance begets more excessive clearance as the valves get hammered (closers). The openers will tighten up and you want to avoid interference (negative opener clearance). From what I am hearing the newer bikes have better materials and closer tolerances so the valves seem to stay within spec longer. Of course the higher revving bikes (track/race) need valve checks more often. Mike2. Why do cylinder head valves have to be round?Valves are round to turn and constantly re-seat themselves, this has been proved from over 100 years of testing. Until man can create a compound that will not change shape from expansion and contraction, and will not allow anything to stick to it, ever, this is what we got3. Does transmission fluid help to quiet valves ticking?I heard if you add a 1/2 quart atf to your oil it wo not thin it out enough to cause lack of lube. I've got a couple noisy lifters in my 3.9 liter Dakota when I rev the engine up around 2,400 RPM so I am gonna try the atf. I hear it works well so long as the engine is not to plugged with sludge. If the engine is loaded with sludge, then the atf breaks too much free and it either blocks the oil pump pickup screen or plugs the oil filter, which caused the bypass valve to let all that heavily contaminated oil circulate through the engine and then the real problems begin. So for some engines that have been overly neglected it might not be a good idea to try atf in the oil.4. How Automotive Engines Work | VroomGirlsAutomotive engines consist of multiple cylinders (usually four, six or eight), all bored into a block of metal (the engine block). Each cylinder contains a piston, which moves up and down. A connecting rod connects the piston to a rotating crankshaft, which turns the up-and-down motion of the piston into a circular motion. Today, all car engines are "four-stroke" or "four-cycle" engines, meaning it takes four movements of each piston (down-up-down-up) to complete one power cycle. Let's look at what happens in each of the four cycles. The piston starts at the top of the cylinder and begins to move downwards. Meanwhile, valves in the top of the cylinder (the cylinder head), called intake valves, are opened. The downward motion of the piston creates a vacuum, sucking in a mixture of gas and air through the intake valves. (We will talk about how the gas and air get there in a moment.) When the piston gets to the bottom of the cylinder, the intake valves close. The piston moves upwards, compressing the fuel-air mixture and making it hotter and more volatile. As the piston reaches the top of the cylinder, a spark plug, which is screwed into the top of the cylinder head, produces an electric spark. This ignites the fuel-air mixture, causing it to burn and expand and driving the piston downwards. When the piston reaches the bottom, another set of valves, called exhaust valves, are opened. The piston moves upward, pushing the spent exhaust gases out of the cylinder. When the piston reaches the top, the exhaust valves close, the intake valves open, and the cycle starts again. Before gasoline can be burned, it must be mixed with air. On modern cars, this is the job of the fuel injection system. When the driver steps on the accelerator pedal, she is actually opening a valve (called a throttle valve) that lets more air into the engine. The car's electronic control unit (ECU) monitors how much air is coming in through the throttle valve, as well as other parameters such as air temperature and humidity, accelerator pedal position, and engine temperature. From all these numbers, the ECU decides exactly how much fuel is needed. Gasoline automotive engines like an air-to-fuel ratio of around 14.7:1, but the ECU can fine-tune the mixture, making it leaner (more air) or richer (more fuel), depending on conditions. The fuel is sprayed into fine droplets by the fuel injectors. In most cars, this takes place in a chamber just outside of the engine called the intake manifold. Most automotive engines have one injector for each cylinder, placed just above the intake valves. Some newer designs use direct fuel injection, which sprays the fuel directly into the cylinder during the intake stroke. Direct fuel injection provides more precise control over the amount of fuel, essentially allowing more of the fuel to be burned. This increases power and fuel economy and reduces emissions. Because the injectors must withstand the high temperatures and pressures of combustion, direct fuel injection systems are more expensive to build. The intake and exhaust valves are driven by a camshaft, a long spinning shaft with several egg-shaped lobes. As the shaft turns, the tall part of the lobe pushes the valve open. By altering the profile of the cam lobes, engine designers can fine-tune the opening and closing of the valves (called the valve timing) and change the characteristics of the engine. Unfortunately, valve timing is a compromise. A cam profile that provides strong power at high engine speeds might result in a rough idle or poor low-speed power. (This is why many old muscle cars have such a rough idle - they have cam profiles that are tuned for power, rather than smoothness.) A fairly recent development is the variable valve timing system, known by trade names like VVT-i or VTEC. Variable valve timing is a mechanical system that moves the camshaft slightly as engine speed increases, which effectively changes the valve timing. This allows the engine to produce more power at both high and low RPMs, and results in smoother, stronger, and more even acceleration. Buying a new car?

What Properties of Water Make It so Unique?
This seems to be some latest class assignment. Several people are asking the same questions. Some of the unique properties are 1) Anomalous expansion of water at lower temperatures. Usually all liquids lose some of their volume when cooled and frozen. Water on the other hand has maximum density at 4 degree centigrade. If it is cooled beyond 4 degree centigrade it starts expanding and loses density. It is one of the rare compounds where the solid form floats over the liquid form. 2) Universal solvent. It is a liquid that dissolves more substances than any other liquid. 3) Neutral pH of 7. Pure water is neither acidic nor alkaline. 4) It is the only natural substance that is found in all three states in large quantities on earth. 5) Pure water is a bad conductor of electricity. However electrolyte impurities such as salts increase its electrical conductivity significantly.1. Properties of Water Question. ?Probably it's oil2. what are the six properties of water?Liquid at room temperature Boils at 100 degrees c freezes at nought degrees c Densest at 4 degrees c3. what are the physical properties of water?it is wet4. who can explain to me the properties of the water that can be used as alternate fuel instead of gasoline.?What you are actually doing is separating the hydrogen and oxygen molecules with a 12 volt dc current from your car's battery and that two gases is mixed with the air intake and then goes into the carburetor. If done correctly will almost double your gas mileage. You might have more water coming out of your exhaust.5. What properties of water change when acetic acid is added?Well the solution pH changes for a start..and this depends on (i) the acid dissociation constant of acetic acid; and (ii) the concentration of the acetic acid in solultion... Acetic acid is a WEAK acid, but pH would descend from 7 given protonation of the solvent by the acid...6. What are the 4 unique properties of water?Unique Properties Of Water7. If we collect rainwater directly (in air), then do the properties of water remain the same all over the world?No - water raining through the air will collect pollutants in the air as it comes down. This is the principle behind "water scrubbers" used to remove pollutants from flue gasses at many power stations. In short if the air is clean, the water will be clean. If not the water will contain some of what is in the air. Which in some cities can be pretty bad.If we collect rainwater directly (in air), then do the properties of water remain the same all over the world?8. What chemical properties of the water a bagel is boiled in determine how good it will be?Bagels are boiled in alkaline (high pH/basic) water. The increased pH aides the Maillard Browning reaction. The Maillard reaction is the browning, and flavour development which takes place in the presence of amino acids, carbohydrates and heat. Traditionally, water was alkalized with NaOH (lye/caustic soda), which is a very strong base. I think this is less common currently, but am unaware if this is banned in any jurisdictions. I think sodium bicarbonate is also currently used to alkalize boiling solutions. What chemical properties of the water a bagel is boiled in determine how good it will be?9. what are all the four properties of water?water has high heat of vaporization , high surface tension , low viscosity , high heat of fusion, high heat of vaporization and etc10. What are the properties of water? Need good answers to this and the details?Water is unique because it has a relatively high heat capacity, surface tension, it's a near universal solvent, non-toxic, and it's most dense at 4 degrees C (important for ice to float over liquid water in a lake) among other things. Water molecules bond with each other by Van der Waals forces, dipole-dipole forces and hydrogen bonds.11. How do the properties of water supprt life on Earth?necessary for respiration and growth. Moderates change of temperature produces weather tides irrigation transfers heat around the world reflects back excess energy etc etc12. How can I draw a picture of water in motion, and have 4 of the 6 properties of water illustrated?well, you could have a window open so that you can put a water bug in the sink floating on the water for adhesion/cohesion, maybe. uhm, you could have ice floating in a cup for density, because as a solid, water is less dense, so it floats. something with water giving off heat or something? like, the water in a lake sucks in the warmth of the sun during the day and slowly releases the heat at night. anddd, that's about all i can think of
What Are the Six Properties of Water?
Cohesiveness. The cohesiveness contributes to the transpiration process of plants. A network of water-conducting cells takes water from roots to trees. Unusually high specific heat. Because of this, it will change its temperature less when it absorbs or loses a specific amount of heat. And organisms can resist temperature change better. The expansion of ice as it freezes. This is important because without it all ponds, lakes and oceans would freeze. Since organisms depend on bodies of water to survive, life would be impossible here on earth without this special property. Evaporative cooling. It prevents terrestrial organisms from overheating and contributes to the stability of temperature in lakes and ponds. It prevents leaves on a plant from drying out because it keeps the tissues from becoming too warm in the sunlight. It accounts for the high heat of vaporization. It helps regulate the internal temperature of an organism, in both aquatic and terrestrial ecosystems, and moderates the earth's climate. Water also conducts heat easily1. What are the 2 properties of water?Lancenigo di Villorba (TV), Italy You asked :"Briefly describe 2 properties of water and how each property is important to life functions?" MY ANSWER IS :"WATER IS A FLUID WHERE LIFE MAY BEGIN ITS EVOLUTION FROM PROTEINs. METHANE OR AMMONIA DIDN'T BECAUSE WATER IS DIFFERENT FLUID, IT'S A FLUID : - having High Dipolar Moment (e.g. polar molecule), so Water may acts effective Solvatation onto Polar Molecules like Proteins are ; - having High Boiling Point, so Water keep unchanged Mass' Amount of its Vats. I hope this helps you.2. each of the following properties of water is due to hydrogen bonding EXCEPT...?obviously d. when boiling points of hydrides of group 16 is determined, hydride of oxygen (i.e water) has highest boiling point. bcoz of high bp, it exists as liquid in rtp. adhesion-cohesion force, a form of its capillarity is also due to H-bond. water is bent bcoz O has 2 pairs of lone electrons. this repulsion is higher than repulsion posed by d bonding electrons between O and H, so d bonding electrons cant be linear. it has nothing 2 do with H-bond3. AP bio help - properties of water?Adhesion and unity of water molecules and xylem, transpiration pull, tension from the Casperian strip interior the basis (that's impermeable to water, so as water enters via the cellular wall that's compelled into the cytoplasm and could't get lower back out, inflicting a push upwards. that rather does not do this plenty in terms of water circulation; its fairly greater the transpiration pull). And diffusion, yet that works basically for extremely short distances. It basically facilitates to get water into the basis hairs, then transpiration pull fantastically plenty takes over. in the journey that your speaking approximately animals, then i assume the bloodstream and aquaporins interior the cellular membranes4. List 3 properties of water?1. Cohesion: is the sticking together of similar molecules. Water is very cohesive. This allows water to be pulled along a pathway with relative ease. 2. Surface Tension: cohesion allows water to pull together and form droplets or form an interface between it and other surfaces. The measure of how hard it is to break this interface is its surface tension. Water allows materials to rest upon it if the surface tension is not broken. Pollen, dust, water insects, and other biological materials are able to remain on the surface of the water because of this tension. 3. Adhesion: The sticking of one substance to another. Water is a good adhesive. It will cling on to many objects and act as a glue. Capillary Action is an example of cohesion and adhesion working together to move water up a thin tube.5. Which of the following properties of water explain why beetles don't quickly dehydrate when exposed to higher?The last two. The high heat of vapourization means that water can be exposed to a lot of heat without changing to a gas and getting out of the beetle. Hydrogen bonding between water molecules means water requires a lot of energy before it decides to change into a gas. This contributes to its high heat of vapourization. I can not think of how liquid / solid water density has anything to do with this, it's not like you are defrosting a frozen beetle right?
What Are Some of the Weirder Chemical Properties of Water?
It is practically non-compressible.When going from the liquid state to the solid state, it actually expands instead of contracts.The true vapor state is not visible to the naked eye.Can be boiled, then suddenly frozen at room temperature, using a Bell jar and vacuum pump.1. what are the six properties of water?Liquid at room temperature Boils at 100 degrees c freezes at nought degrees c Densest at 4 degrees c2. How would you explain the properties of water?That depends on the property concerned. There are rather a lot.A very strong dipole moment is why water is a particularly good solvent.The strong dipole is due to the large electronegativity between the oxygen and hydrogen atoms.The ability of water to act as both an acid and base has to do with that strong dipole and the low energy barrier to dissociation of a proton. There are a lot of properties I'm not mentioning. Perhaps you'd like to narrow this question down a bit or list the properties you are particularly interested in.I have no medical health qualifications. Any advice given is purely personal opinion, and should not be used for treatment of any physical, or psychological problems. How would you explain the properties of water?3. what are the physical properties of water?solid(cold), liquid(average temp.) , gas (boiling point)4. what are some chemical properties of water?You probably know water's chemical description is H2O. As the diagram to the left shows, that is one atom of oxygen bound to two atoms of hydrogen. The hydrogen atoms are 'attached' to one side of the oxygen atom, resulting in a water molecule having a positive charge on the side where the hydrogen atoms are and a negative charge on the other side, where the oxygen atom is. Since opposite electrical charges attract, water molecules tend to attract each other, making water kind of 'sticky.' As the right-side diagram shows, the side with the hydrogen atoms (positive charge) attracts the oxygen side (negative charge) of a different water molecule. (If the water molecule here looks familiar, remember that everyone's favorite mouse is mostly water, too). All these water molecules attracting each other mean they tend to clump together. This is why water drops are, in fact, drops! If it was not for some of Earth's forces, such as gravity, a drop of water would be ball shaped -- a perfect sphere. Even if it does not form a perfect sphere on Earth, we should be happy water is sticky. Water is called the 'universal solvent' because it dissolves more substances than any other liquid. This means that wherever water goes, either through the ground or through our bodies, it takes along valuable chemicals, minerals, and nutrients. Pure water has a neutral pH of 7, which is neither acidic nor basic.5. What are the 2 properties of water?Physical: Water is unique in that it is the only natural substance that is found in all three states -- liquid, solid (ice), and gas (steam) -- at the temperatures normally found on Earth. Water has a very high surface tension. In other words, water is sticky and elastic, and tends to clump together in drops rather than spread out in a thin film. Chemical:Pure water has a neutral pH of 7, which is neither acidic nor basic. Water is a polar substance and is cohesive6. who can explain to me the properties of the water that can be used as alternate fuel instead of gasoline.?What you are actually doing is separating the hydrogen and oxygen molecules with a 12 volt dc current from your car's battery and that two gases is mixed with the air intake and then goes into the carburetor. If done correctly will almost double your gas mileage. You might have more water coming out of your exhaust.7. What are two properties of water used by insects?Surface tension. The surface of water exposed to air tends to cling together. When I was a kid I would often watch a type of bug we called a water spider, it lived by riding on the water surface. I've never seen it myself but have heard about insects that live in water, which capture small air bubbles and use them to adjust how deep they are. Guess that would be called buoyancy.
