So, you’ve heard about this Linux thing and want to know what it’s all about. Electrical engineering or systems engineering lays the groundwork required to work in IT hardware engineering, though a degree in electronics or software architecture may be enough. IT security is its own specialty within IT engineering. PAS 130 gives the guidance on how to label manufactured nano-particles and products that contain them. PAS 130 is a British standard. PAS 131 gives the standard terminology for medical and personal care uses of nanotechnology. The operating system’s interface is clear and simple, so much to the point that there’s no real desktop like that on macOS and Windows—you can’t pin apps or documents to the desktop—it just sits there looking pretty. The Dock is fine, though not as functional as Windows’ Taskbar, but the program launcher and settings are well implemented. A properly operating plant, which has been … Read the rest

The history of gadgets spans as far back as humanity itself – since hominids began creating tools to make their lives easier. If you’re looking to become an electrician as part of the construction trades and work on-site to install, repair and maintain electrical systems in new construction and existing buildings, electrical technology is the training you’re after. Agricultural Engineering is the engineering discipline that strives to apply engineering science to agricultural production and farming. In some circles it is commonly accepted that the scope of agricultural engineering is broader than all other forms of engineering, as it combines elements of mechanical, civil, and chemical engineering with animal and plant biology. Nikola Tesla was one of the most important contributors to the birth of commercial electricity. He was originally an employee of Thomas Edison’s and he invented a system that transmitted alternating current, as opposed to Edison’s direct current system. … Read the rest

When history looks back on the last few decades and the infancy of the Internet can be properly defined, it will likely be chronicled that the Internet is the greatest learning tool since the printing press. As the main daily meal in dozens of countries around the world, lunch holds a place of primary cultural importance. In 9-to-5 environments, the midday meal isn’t always such a big deal, but making time for a healthy lunch can pay off both mentally and physically. Headphones and earphones connect to computers via cable or Bluetooth wireless signal. People may reach for zero-calorie energy drinks like sugar-free Monster for numerous reasons. Increased energy is perhaps the most obvious, along with mental clarity. In addition, dieters may opt for sugar-free energy drinks in place of high-calorie foods or beverages while restricting calories, to manage appetite or for a metabolism boost. Athletes may drink energy drinks … Read the rest

Blogs are budding faster when compared to websites being bought over the internet. Proponents also feel nuclear power leaves a smaller carbon footprint, because its waste can often be reprocessed to produce more energy, and whatever is leftover can be, they say, safely stored in deep repositories. The waste from an entire lifetime of use, the industries say, would only be large enough to fill a bottle of designer water. Because the futuristic technology being used is so invasive of privacy, its use against people like me is a major breach of federal and state privacy laws, civil liberties and human rights. When you’re young, you may not give nutrition much thought. But what you eat as a young adult can affect your energy, your appearance and your health. It’s important that you eat a variety of foods from all the food groups so that you get all the essential … Read the rest

Have you ever wondered what all principles go behind the working of televisions or radios or computers? One advantage I didn’t see mentioned here (or maybe not as clearly as I am) is that you can have multiple extensions on a landline. This is a great advantage if you have someone stationed overseas as we do or away in school. That way when the person calls, more than 1 person can be in on the call at the same time. Can’t do that with a cell phone. Students interested in the engineering side of the field should research electronics engineering technology programs. Through courses that explore communication circuits, basic electronics, embedded controllers, physics, and more students learn to work inside the electrical engineering industry. Coursework provides student with the knowledge needed to develop, examine, and maintain the engineering of electronic equipment. Programs prepare students to work with digital microprocessor systems, … Read the rest

Even though the modern electric utility industry didn’t begin until the late 1800s, we have been fascinated by electricity since our ancestors first witnessed lightning. So here are a few ideas for projects. The simplest experiment with electricity might be an exploration of conductors versus insulators. A conductor is simply a material through which electricity will flow with little resistance; an insulator prevents electricity from flowing. This can be tested by creating a simple circuit with a battery and a light bulb. If a material completes the circuit, the light bulb will luminesce, indicating that it is a conductor. Most metals are conductors, while most nonmetals are insulators. Therefore, it will not be a surprise to see that silver and copper are conductors, while cotton and glass are insulators. However, you may be surprised by the results of lead (a metal) or graphite (a non-metal). Epoxy molding engineering plastics mainly … Read the rest
