Doodlebugs and Microfibres: The Cutting Edge of Cleaning Innovation

Office cleaning companies looking to deliver high-quality services need to offer the latest technology. Some of this technology includes doodlebugs and microfibres – two technologies that have made a great breakthrough in the cleaning industry, and offer environmental benefits.
Microfibre has said to be the most significant innovation in the cleaning industry over the last hundred years, as not only has it consistently proven to be able to reduce time and energy spent on some tasks, but it’s also much more environmentally friendly than other products that are used. This is because the microfibre products do not require chemicals to help them clean.
Research has also shown that by using this kind of technology, back, shoulder and elbow injuries can be reduced in cleaners. Hence, this products is also providing better quality conditions for those who work in the hard world of commercial cleaning.
So what exactly is a microfibre? Usually, they are often found in kits that clean electrical goods, but when it comes to cleaning surfaces, microfibre cloths provide quick and easy ways of cleaning. These clothes look and feel relatively similar to regular cloths, but microfibre is currently leaps and bounds above basic cloths.
The major difference between these kinds of cloths is that in a microfibre cloth, the strands are so small that the human eye struggles to see them. This allows for greater quality cleaning.
Microfibre is a synthetic fibre that is made up of a blend of polyamide and polyester, and even sometimes nylon. When these materials are used together to form a single strand, they create an effective material for cleaning. These bundles are split into ultra-fine fibre using heat, agitation and a number of chemicals. This technology-based way of creating this new material is one of the biggest advancements in the industry, and has created a product that office cleaners would struggle to work without.
Of course, the environmental benefit of microfibre is important to cleaning management companies – but in reference to the NHS, microfibre is a key tool. Health care facilities have quickly taken to this technology, given that previously mops, chemicals and water would have to be changed when cleaning every room to avoid cross contamination. With microfibre, these requirements are not hard to meet.
Although many departments can benefit from microfibre, health care facilities have been quick to embrace this newer technology. In an effort to reduce cross contamination between patient rooms, some state laws in the US require that housekeeping department’s change out the mop and/or chemicals and water after every room. Using microfibre flat mops, this requirement isn’t difficult to meet. This is because microfibre material can be used in mops to make them more light weight and portable – meaning more than one mop can be carried at once. In turn this means that cleaning work can be performed much faster and efficiently, without having a negative effect on the quality of the work.
The Doodlebug is also used often in the cleaning industry, though perhaps not as much as microfibre. It’s a technological advancement in the industry and popular, and are usually sold in kits. These kits include the doodlebug scrub/strip pad, a pad holder, and rougher doodlebug scrub pads for harder jobs like removing wax or cleaning floor edges.…

Modern Locksmith Services

Locksmith companies offer services and technologies well beyond old lock-picking and replacement.
Magnetic and electronic locks are becoming more accessible and affordable to local owners.
Companies which are comprehensive offers a combination of locksmith services and home security systems, including intercoms,home safes,gates windows and secure doors with the latest technologies such as fingerprint readers. Of course, no home security system is impenetrable, but you can get pretty close.
I never thought I would ever have to have the locks in my house changed. I came home last night and my house had been vandalized. The police think it was just some teenagers trying to have a little bit of fun. Now, I need to check out the area to find someone who will change my locks.
My initial response was trepidation. Would I be able to enjoy the privacy of my home, again? I logged onto the Internet and used my search engine to find a list of locksmiths in the greater Denver area. I was able to find some reputable businesses which had very good ratings.
What is so good about using the Internet is you gain ideas on which companies will work to your expectations. Consumer reviews are usually posted on a number of websites detailing the quality of work rendered. You get scoops on how friendly, how punctual, whether the personnel is qualified, how pricey the work is, and various other subjects important to the person who wrote the review.
It is never intelligent to commission endeavors from people who have no idea what they are doing. Why would you want to spend money senselessly? The locksmith who will be working for you should have been well schooled in the knowledge of what it takes to be a great locksmith. Never ever allow yourself to be talked into using the services of callowness.
Any enterprise which has done labor in the community for approximately ten years, has a very good chance of getting you as a patron. Great prominence is looked upon highly and organizations which keep theirs in the higher ranks, will always continue to do what is best for their consumers. This is simply because they want you as a repeat customer and they want you to give references to them.
Remember that most, if not all, locksmiths are ready to give you service twenty-four hours each day and seven days a week. They may charge higher prices for the weekends or holidays but, there is nothing wrong with this. Sometimes they are being pulled out of bed or from family dinners to work for you. They do deserve honest pay for honest work.…

Wireless in Local Loop [WLL] Emerging Technology

Reasons of Using WLL

Any service provider or organization should strive to provide high quality service in the most economic method available to end-user, the customer.

Telecommunication is no exception and therefore, it is necessary to keep abreast of Technology advancements and innovations to provide the best quality of service at lowest cost possible to the subscriber.

In the last 20-30 years, we have seen switching equipment move from manual boards, Magneto exchanges, strowger etc, to the sophisticated Electronic SPC Switches now in use, viz E-10B, OCB-283 & EWSD etc.

Transmission technology has also advanced, thus far to optical Fibre Cable, Microwave Radio, Satellites Communications etc, and is continuously developing.

The local external Network or the local loop also needs adoption of new techno logies, as it is this part of Telecom Network which accounts for approximately 60% of the total cost of whole, Telecom network. By embracing newer technology in the External Plant, we can maintain a high QOS (Quality of service) and reduce the cost to the subscriber. This means we can offer “Voice and Data Communication” to a much greater percentage of the population, previously denied access (for reasons of insufficient disposable Income) to telephone, Fax and Internet Services etc.

This may be illustrated by:

The average household income in India permits affordable expenditure on Telecommunication services, apportioned across the population, as follows:

Average Affordable expenditure on Telecomm Services

By percentage of population

Rs. 120 per month

25 %

Rs. 160 per month

15 %

Rs. 200 per month

10 %

Rs. 400 per month

5 %

Rs.1000 per month

2 %

And also, the total investment required to install a telephone with conventional Wire Line technology, is approximately Rs.30,000/- to Rs.35,000/-. Looking at the above data/figures, it is evident that cost reduction in the external plant part of Telecom Network is very much essential.

The Radio in local loop, i.e. wireless in Local Loop, if not better service, than Wire Line or Landline, but is an equivalent local loop service compared to wire line services and at lower cost.

The economics of wire line versus wireless are

The cost of installing or Maintaining Wire line systems broadly depends on the cost of Labour (Laying Ducts, digging Manholes) whereas cost of wire less depends on cost of subscriber unit, which tends to fall over time, with increasing economies of scale.

Cost of wire line is more due to use of copper a costly metal in U/G cables whereas WLL is independent of this factor.

Cost of wire line system critically depends on the distance between houses and the penetration levels achieved. These factors are not applicable in WLL.

If a subscriber moves to a different operator in case of wire line system, the investment is lost, whereas in the case of WLL, the subscriber unit in such case is simply removed and installed elsewhere.

The cost of wire line system is incurred, even prior to Marketing to the users, whereas much of the cost of WLL is not incurred until the users subscribe the Network.

The widely used WLL systems are:

corDECT WLL: This is digitally enhanced cordless Telecommunication

The standard is defined by ETSI (European Telecommunication Standard Institute).

CDMA – WLL: An American System as per IS-95.

Requirements for a Wireless Local Loop System

The WLL must provide all services supported by the wired local loop with the same or better quality.

A Wireless Local Loop (WLL) system is meant as a replacement for the traditional copper twisted-pair local loop. The WLL system is expected to provide a superior alternative to buried cable. The main purpose of the WLL system is to substitute a wired local loop for providing fixed telephone access. The WLL must, in general, provide all services supported today by the wired local loop, and also those, that are likely to emerge in the near future. Further, it must provide these with the same, or better, quality.

The requirements of a WLL system can be broadly divided into five categories: services, capacity, PSTN connectivity, cost and maintainability.…

Web Design Study in Interactive Format Described

To become a proficient web designer qualified appropriately for today’s job market, your must-have certification is Adobe Dreamweaver. We also advise that students get an in-depth understanding of the complete Adobe Web Creative Suite, including Flash and Action Script, to have the facility to take advantage of Dreamweaver commercially as a web-designer. This can lead to becoming either an Adobe Certified Professional (ACP) or an Adobe Certified Expert (ACE).
In order to become a web designer of professional repute however, there are other things to consider. You’ll need to study various programming essentials like HTML, PHP and database engines like MySQL. A practical knowledge of E-Commerce and SEO (Search Engine Optimisation) will also improve your CV and employability.
Throw out the typical salesperson who offers any particular course without a decent chat so as to understand your abilities as well as level of experience. Ensure that they have a large range of products so they’re able to give you a program that suits you.. With some live experience or certification, your starting-point of learning is very different to someone completely new. Where this will be your first crack at an IT exam then you may want to practice with user-skills and software training first.
Being a part of the leading edge of new technology is as thrilling as it comes. You personally play your part in shaping the next few decades. We’re barely beginning to get to grips with how this will truly impact our way of life. The way we communicate and interact with everyone around us will be massively affected by computers and the web.
The money in IT isn’t to be sniffed at moreover – the usual income in the United Kingdom for a typical IT worker is much more than in the rest of the economy. It’s a good bet that you’ll receive a much better deal than you would in most other jobs. Because the IT market sector is still developing at an unprecedented rate, it’s predictable that the requirement for professionally qualified and skilled IT workers will flourish for the significant future.
OK, why should we consider commercial qualifications rather than the usual academic qualifications taught at schools, colleges or universities? With university education costs spiralling out of control, along with the industry’s increasing awareness that vendor-based training is closer to the mark commercially, there’s been a dramatic increase in CISCO, Adobe, Microsoft and CompTIA authorised training courses that supply key solutions to a student at a fraction of the cost and time involved. Essentially, students are simply taught the necessary specifics in depth. It’s slightly more broad than that, but the most important function is always to master the precisely demanded skill-sets (with some necessary background) – without overdoing the detail in everything else (as degree courses are known to do).
As long as an employer understands what work they need doing, then all they have to do is advertise for the particular skill-set required. Syllabuses all have to conform to the same requirements and don’t change between schools (in the way that degree courses can).
Finding job security these days is very rare. Businesses will drop us out of the workplace at a moment’s notice – as long as it fits their needs. Where there are escalating skills shortfalls and growing demand though, we always hit upon a new kind of security in the marketplace; driven forward by conditions of continuous growth, companies just can’t get the number of people required.
Investigating the Information Technology (IT) sector, the recent e-Skills analysis showed a twenty six percent shortage in trained professionals. Alternatively, you could say, this shows that Great Britain can only locate three properly accredited workers for each 4 positions available now. This one idea on its own reveals why the country desperately needs many more people to join the IT industry. Actually, gaining new qualifications in IT as you progress through the coming years is most likely the finest choice of careers you could make.…

Telecommunications – FYI About VOIP – Must Read

Hi my name is Nigel, I am writing this article today to inform you of some very exciting advancements in the telecom world. Do you or someone you know have a home phone? Most people will say yes even if they don’t use it they have it. Also if you have a home phone you probably have calling features, and they cost you every month weather you use them or not. So let me ask you a question, have you heard of VOIP? That is voice over internet protocol. Do you know what that means? Well let me tell you, technology has changed so much that now there is a phone that can be connected to your internet and you use it like your home phone. If you haven’t seen it let me explain. Recently I was told about this new phone called a video phone. When I saw it I was amazed. I am not kidding you, right away I saw so many advantages to this technology. But like most I was skeptical to say the least. Also very interested. What I learned and want to share with you is that this new technology is rapidly replacing our old technology. What I mean is that everything we have like music television, photography is going digital. So it is only a matter of time before the last thing the telephone goes digital also, it’s happening right now.
Do you have friends or family that live in another country, state, or province? Would you like to talk to them more? What if you could see them not only hear their voice? That is what I am talking about, a phone that allows you to see and her in digital format. That is not the best part. This phone is just like your home phone, with a local phone number. But this phone and phone number are also portable. That’s right you can take the phone with you and if family or friends want to call you no matter where you are in the world. They can dial your local number and your phone will ring where ever you are in the world, provided you have internet access of course. Try that with your current home phone. Also if your friends or family have a video phone you will not only hear their voice but you can see their face. Did I mention that this video phone comes with all the calling features at no extra cost? That’s right call forwarding, call display, conference calling, etc all included at no extra cost. This VOIP technology is changing the way we communicate.
I was also amazed to find out that this phone with all of it’s features and functions is less expensive than my old home phone, the one plugged into the wall. When I found out all that I wanted to know more. What I found out got me really excited. So I called all my relatives and friends and told them about this video phone and how much money they could save and all the features they would gain. Well they are excited now to. We call each other and visit. That’s right because we can see each other we now visit, it’s great. I actually connect my video phone to my 60 inch big screen television and visit in life size. When my wife and I travel we take one with us and our kids can call us. So we are never out of touch now, we used to use the cell phones when we travel, but the phone companies were charging us roaming. Not with our video phones. Everywhere you go now, hotels and motels even friends houses they have internet. We just plug the phone in and within 2 minuets we have our phone with our home phone number and we get our messages. Did you know that when you stay at a hotel they charge you to use the phone? Well with our video phone we never pay for phone calls anymore.
You see this truly is something to get excited about. I joined the company. Not everyone will but soon everyone will have a video phone. I did mention it was less expensive than our old phone right? Well so much less that we got 2 so that we can always have one with us when we go away. Tell you what, the 2 phones with all the calling features you can get, local phone number and video capabilities cost us the same as 1 conventional analog phone. In summery I have 2 completely independent phones and numbers that are portable and digital and video capable for the cost of 1 regular one line house phone that you cant see the person your talking to, or …

Galaxy Nexus Vs iPhone 4S: Top Smartphones Match

Are you looking to change your old smartphone? If you have been reading a lot of tech blogs then your choices must have only included Samsung’ Galaxy Nexus and Apple’s iPhone 4S. Each of these phones is special on their own right. They have their own unique features that seem to top the one from the other. This makes it hard to choose between them.
But that is if you are not into jumping to bandwagons. Most people would buy the iPhone 4S because it is cool to have one. You can say this for most of Apple’s gadgets. Let us stay away from stereotyping and compare the two phones the way that they should be compared.
Performance
The iPhone 4S runs on Apple’s very own A5 processor, the same one that is on the iPad 2. It is clocked at 1 GHz and is supported by a RAM of 512 MB. Meanwhile, the Galaxy Nexus is powered by Texas Instruments’ OMAP processor which is clocked at 1.2 GHz. It also doubles the RAM of the iPhone 4S. Higher numbers are better although the difference is subtle during actual performance.
Apps
The number of apps on the Apple App Store is larger than those in the Android Market. A significant number of those apps are actually worth the purchase which is something you can’t say for Androids. This is the biggest advantage of the iPhone 4S over the Galaxy Nexus.
Operating System
The Galaxy Nexus is the first phone to have Android Ice Cream Sandwich as its operating system. This latest version of Android offers a lot of improvements both in performance and aesthetics. The iPhone 4S has the iOS 5 for its operating system. It is simpler to use than ICS but you can’t make the choice between the phones based on OS. Both OS are that good.
Camera
The iPhone 4S comes with an 8MP camera while the Nexus has a 5MP camera. This makes the camera of the iPhone take better pictures. Both phones can take 1080p HD camera.
Connectivity
Connectivity options are becoming a big factor in choosing a phone. With the iPhone 4S, you can connect to the internet through 3G and Wi-Fi. It is also the first phone to come out with Bluetooth 4, the latest version of the popular wireless technology. With Bluetooth 4, you can transfer files faster and in an extended range.
Meanwhile, the Galaxy Nexus can connect to the internet using 3G, Wi-Fi and 4G LTE. Through 4G LTE, you can experience internet speeds of up to 21 Mb/s. In contrast, the iPhone 4S can only reach 14.4 Mb/s. You won’t have Bluetooth 4 with Galaxy Nexus but you have Near Field Communication (NFC). This is a new wireless technology where file transfers can be done just by tapping two NFC phones.
Conclusion
Have you decided which one is for you? The iPhone 4S has better apps, camera and a simpler interface. With the Nexus, you have faster internet speeds, NFC, and Ice Cream Sandwich. Check out our Galaxy Nexus vs. iPhone 4s review for a more comprehensive comparison.…
