Is GTA Reaching Its Peak?

Is GTA reaching its peak?

GTA always has and always will get a lot of hate. People need to hate on something and GTA just so happens to be one of those games that people can blame for bad crap that people do e.g. murder. Oh, they played GTA? Well, so what? You can not say that a game has reached it's peak and then list two or three games where it's reached it's peak and honestly, why does it matter? I enjoyed the latest Assassin's Creed and do not believe it's reached it's peak, but then that's just my opinion. So long as people keep enjoy stealing cars, running people over and shooting them, let them enjoy GTA: peak or no peak.

Expanding the reach of the Good Shepherd

In the past, the distance was a major obstacle for agencies located several hours away from the Food Bank's headquarters in Auburn; many felt they were not able to access adequate quantities of food. The organization addressed this problem, as well as its responsibility to serve the entire state of Maine, by establishing a distribution center in Brewer. This facility has since closed; however, a new distribution center in Hampden replaced it. The facility in Hampden now serves hundreds of agencies in seven counties in Northern and Downeast Maine

Is it likely that Ripple will reach $5.00 in 2018?

Well if you take into account the amount of xrp released until December 2018 and the amount deleted assuming ripple handle 1500 transactions a day. And if ripple reached the same market cap as Bitcoin currently have by December 2018, each ripple would then be 4,62 USD in value. Keep in mind that ripple is likely to be listed on coinbase in 2018 and that it draws in slot of banks and financial institutions. I would say that it's is likely that ripple will reach prices around 5 dollar pr coin.I have a brand new video on my YouTube channel, it will explain the calculations

Questions about Halo Reach SPOILERS?

1) Some confusion, acording to halsey cortana is a forrunner AI, in my opinion cortana is the redundant AI made to back up and protect against Medecant bias(forrunner Ai made to battle gravemind but goes nuts). Which is why she has so much info about the covenant and the rings on halo 1. Just a theory though. She is not halsey. However they elude to this fact in the halo legends DVD when master cheif rescues halsey and she tells him "Dont make a girl a promise you can keep." Also stated by cortana when Mastercheif is getting ready to leave her on high charity. 2) They were always around i would imagine just were none around in halo 1. Remeber halo 1 is a vertually issolated incident. Not many people are aware its happening. Pillar of Autumn just kinda happens upon the ring and is being chased by a group of covenant ships. So there just might not have been any brutes on those ships simply because brutes are muscle and should be allocated to ground work on reach not in ships. 3) I was actually playing though thinking that noble six was going to be masterchief. I would have been both upset and happy at the same time. She chooses noble 6 because, as stated by one of the vidoes that were availible on XBOX live he is in a group with only 1 other spartan. Our favorite green machine, The MasterChief. So given her options i would say cortana made the choice at the same time. Have 6 get her to the autumn. Where she would then have the best odds to hyperkiller spartans. However 6 stays on Reach. FYI Noble 5 aka Jorge, Spartan with turret is halsey son. Thats why he calls her mom and if you pay attention during the Space mission. When he looks up and reach starts getting glassed. He wants to go save his mom but the AI Dot informs him that he has no chance in heck. She is already gone. Statisticly speaking of course. Ps anyone who has more info or better info please i would love to know more -Rev

Qualcomm Expects 5g Smartphone Shipments to Reach 500 Million in 2021, an Increase of 150%
Qualcomm Expects 5g Smartphone Shipments to Reach 500 Million in 2021, an Increase of 150%
On November 9, according to foreign media reports, chip giant Qualcomm expects that the shipment of 5g smart phones in 2021 will be more than twice that in 2020.It is reported that Qualcomm expects that the shipment of 5g smart phones will reach 200 million in 2020 and increase by 150% to 500 million in 2021.Last week, Qualcomm CEO Steve Mollenkopf attended the Tianyi intelligent ecological industry summit forum and delivered a speech.He believes that by 2022, the global shipment of 5g smart phones is expected to reach 750 million; By 2023, the number of global 5g connections is expected to exceed 1 billion, 2 years faster than 4G reaching the same number of connections; By 2025, the number of global 5g connections is expected to be close to 3 billion, and 5g traffic will account for 45% of global mobile network data traffic.Earlier, Qualcomm President anmeng said that the current sharp decline in 5g mobile phone prices has boosted the growth of 5g mobile phones. Since the last quarter, half of the mobile phones are 5g mobile phones, which is the most representative in the Chinese market. At the same time, this situation will also be seen in more emerging markets in the future, because many Chinese mobile phone manufacturers provide products for these emerging markets.Over the years, apple and Qualcomm have been engaged in a fierce legal battle over intellectual property rights, but the two sides reached a settlement in April 2019. At that time, the two companies signed a six-year renewable license agreement and a multi-year chipset supply agreement, which paved the way for Apple's iPhone 12 series and other products to use Qualcomm's 5g modem.Recently, Apple's newly released iPhone 12 was disassembled. Disassembly shows that the company used Qualcomm snapdragon x55 modem chip in its first generation 5g smartphone iPhone 12 series.According to the reconciliation report between apple and Qualcomm, Apple will continue to use Qualcomm's 5g network compatible modem chip until at least 2023.
Sony's PS4 Device Sales Reached 100 Million Units, with a Revenue of 1.9257 Trillion Yen
Sony's PS4 Device Sales Reached 100 Million Units, with a Revenue of 1.9257 Trillion Yen
Sony released 2019 Q1 financial report: PS4 sales exceeded 100 million units, with a revenue of 1.9257 trillion yenSony released its latest financial report. As of June 30, Sony had sold 3.2 million PS4 devices, which means that the sales of PS4 has reached the milestone of 100 million. After the last quarter, Sony PS4 sold 96.8 million units. According to the financial report, Sony's revenue in the first quarter was 1.9257 trillion yen (about US $17.73 billion), down 1% from 1.9536 trillion yen in the same period last year; The net profit attributable to Sony shareholders was 152.1 billion yen (about US $1.4 billion), down 33% from the same period last year.Daniel Ahmad, senior analyst at Niko partners, said that although the sales of PS4 may slow down, it is still the fastest selling device among home game consoles to reach 100 million units. This is more than the PS2 and Nintendo's popular Wii console. PS4 reached this milestone in only 5 years and 7 months, and its sales exceeded 50 million units in less than 3 years. Sony also revealed that the share of digital content download has exceeded 50%, which means that the number of people buying digital games now exceeds that of physical CDs. In addition, Jim Ryan, President and CEO of Sony mutual entertainment, once said in June this year that "one in 20 people who bought PS4 and other games and peripherals bought PSVR". Unexpectedly, the shipment of PSVR head display may have reached 5 million units. PS4 shipped 3.2 million units in Q1 of fiscal year 2019, with 36.2 million PS users, and sold 42.9 million games in total. Sony lowered the shipment of PS4 from April 2019 to March 2020 to 15 million (the previous forecast was 16 million), which means that if this new goal is achieved, the shipment of PS4 will reach 111.8 million by March 31, 2020. Sony's next-generation Playstation is likely to be the ps5, which now looks likely to be launched in the fall of 2020. Sony promises that the ps5 will support 8K, 3D audio, SSD storage and backward compatibility of existing PS4 games. The ps5 will also use an eight core CPU based on AMD's third-generation ryzen series and include a GPU that supports ray tracing graphics. Sony will also provide some type of CD support on the ps5. With the release of openxr 1.0, Microsoft and oculus will support hololens, WMR head display, rift and questopenxr respectively, aiming to simplify the AR / VR development process of cross head display and cross platform. It is a widely supported project and released version 1.0 today. Khronos group said that this is an important milestone and witnessed the joint development level of many well-known enterprises in the AR / VR field. Openxr is a royalty free standard, which aims to establish the bottom connection between VR and AR hardware, game engine and content, so as to form a more interactive ecosystem. This standard was implemented in April 2017. At present, almost all major hardware, platform and engine companies in the VR industry have joined, including major ar players such as magic leap. With the assistance of Khronos group, representatives of member companies in the openxr "working group" have been actively developing the standard.Today, the working group announced the release of the first openxr version 1.0 under the standard. Khronos group said that starting from 1.0, openxr will maintain "full backward compatibility, provide a solid foundation for software developers and hardware suppliers, and bring excellent and mobile user experience." openxr has both an application program interface (between XR application and platform) and a device interface (between platform and head display). In order to significantly improve the interactive operability, build an application, platform and header display with openxr as the standard (rather than countless proprietary interfaces).For example, this means that applications built by openxr headers can also run on completely different openxr headers without changing the underlying code. In addition, this also means that as long as openxr is supported instead of dozens of head displays running alone, newcomers in the game engine market can quickly master all compatible head displays. Admittedly, openxr does not mean that the applications and contents of one platform must be compatible with the header display of another platform. Every company, even supporters of openxr, can still control where content is available, which platforms or which head displays can be supported. In short, openxr is only the technical basis of interoperability, and it is still the company's decision on content, equipment and platform strategy. Currently, openxr 1.0 can be used on GitHub. The reference guide published by the Khronos group provides a high-level technical overview of the API structure. Next, the engine, header display and content generator will support openxr. Microsoft has implemented initial support for openxr on hololens and windowsmr head displays, and collaborata has also released the runtime of monado open source Linux openxr. Epic said that it had previously supported openxr 0.9 in the illusory engine and planned to update the engine device for version 1.0. Oculus has promised to provide openxr operation support for Rift and quest later this year. Other companies officially involved in openxr development, such as AMD, arm, NVIDIA, HTC, valve, unity and other companies, have indicated that they will support openxr version 1.0, but have not announced a specific timetable. Oculus announced to provide cloud storage for Rift and quest. The SDK of oculus store has supported the cloud storage functions of oculus quest, oculus go and Samsung gear VR. Through the cloud storage API, the PC oculus rift store has been able to provide users with cloud storage for three years. But this API does not apply to Facebook Mobile headphones. At present, the oculus Platform SDK has abandoned the API and introduced cloud storage V2 to realize the oculus multi head display working mode. Like rift, cloud storage V2 requires developers to operate. This only applies to games where developers integrate API development functions.Even if the user uninstalls the game or resets the device, the content of cloud storage will not be affected, which is good news for quest and go users. Developers can set the memory to a mode that can be shared by all versions of the game. In other words, in a game that supports cloud storage V2, after players pause the game on rift, they can also read the progress bar on quest to continue the task. One user and one application can use 100 files on the API, and each file can be up to 10MB. In theory, this means that developers can save up to 1GB of memory per user, although this is not necessary in practice. However, the main problem with cloud storage on rift is that the store will not display whether the user's application / game is suitable or not, which needs to be written by developers - but in most cases, it is not. Users can only ask other users on the forum and guess the answer. Once they make mistakes, they can only find the lost data by themselves. Fortunately, Facebook plans to add an icon to the store page so that users can clearly see whether the application can save data in the cloud. Qualcomm and Tencent signed strategic cooperation: optimize games and develop AR / VR and 5g cloud games. Today, Qualcomm wireless communication technology (China) Co., Ltd. signed a non binding memorandum of understanding (MOU) with Tencent games to carry out comprehensive strategic cooperation in the field of games. Through this strategic cooperation, the two sides expect to jointly optimize future cooperation projects, including those based on Qualcomm ® Xiaolong TM's mobile game terminal, game content and performance optimization, snapdragon elite game feature enhancement, cloud game, AR / VR, 5g game use case development and other related technologies.Ma Xiaoyi, senior vice president of Tencent, said: "Over the years, Tencent has maintained close cooperation with Qualcomm. We are pleased that the strategic cooperation announced today has further deepened and expanded the partnership between the two sides. We hope that the active cooperation between the two sides can make use of each party's technology and R & D expertise to further promote the innovation of the game industry and bring higher quality games and interactive experience to users." Qualcomm said that as a key use case of 5g, mobile games will be able to quickly take advantage of the advantages of next-generation connection technology. Faster speed, higher bandwidth and excellent ultra-low latency will enable real-time and multiplayer immersive game experience. We hope to enrich the lives of consumers around the world and change the rules of the game through the new strategic cooperation announced by Tencent. Qualcomm and Tencent games We believe that by using Qualcomm's core products and technologies based on Xiaolong platform and Tencent's extensive resources in the field of game development, the two sides aim to develop high-quality games and experience them on a wide range of Xiaolong platforms and terminals. The emergence of 5g applications marks the arrival of a new era of connectivity, and a faster and more powerful real-time immersive game experience will transform mobile game production Industry pattern.
Safe Canning Amid Canning Supply Shortages  AnswerLine  Iowa State University Extension and Outreach
Safe Canning Amid Canning Supply Shortages AnswerLine Iowa State University Extension and Outreach
Vinegar. If the recipe does not specify a particular type of vinegar, white or cider vinegar may be used safely as long as it is labeled as 5% acidity or labeled as 50 grain. Apple cider vinegar will impart a different flavor and color when substituted for white vinegar. Specialty vinegars such as red or white wine vinegar, malt vinegar, balsamic, and other flavored vinegars should only be used when specified in a research-tested recipe.whats the best kind of white wine to cook with?Depends on what you are making, of course. If your recipe says to use a dry white wine, try a white Burgundy, a Sauvignon Blanc, or a Viognier. But last night I made a creamy pasta recipe that specified an "off-dry" white wine: I used an inexpensive Gewurztraminer, and it was just right. If your recipe does not specify whether the wine should be a dry one or not, consider the other ingredients you are using and decide whether a spritzy dry wine or one with a slight sweetness would be more compatible with the flavors in the dish.Can white wine vinegar be used instead of white vinegar?No, because white vinegar is distilled with water and chemicals. White wine vinegar is a stronger substance and will damage the sterilizer. White vinegar has a strong and sour taste to it, while white wine vinegar is sour and used as a dressing for salads.Opinion question: Which is more elegant to drink, Red wine or White wine?White wine is much more elegant. Red wine is a casual wineHow to get out red candlewax that spattered all over my white tablecloth lastnight--didn't notice till now?Get your self some spray & wash... the hot form that has 2 bottles at the same time in a plastic wrap. those issues is wonderful! It gets rid of maximum wine stains and just about something, particularly blood. solid success.... perhaps white wine is better while utilising a borrowed vintage.Is white vinegar the same as White Wine vinegar?No, it's not. White vinegar (also known as distilled vinegar) is made of acetic acid diluted in distilled water. Its flavor is simple-its just sour. Typical concentrations range from 5-7% acetic acid.White wine vinegar is made by allowing white wine to turn to vinegar. It has a much more complex flavor profile. It is also frequently less sour (acidic) than distilled white vinegarCan you recommend an easy recipe that involves white wine?Could always mix it with vodka, ribena and lemonadecan anyone give example of red and white zinfandel brand?White Zinfandel is a relative newcomer to the world of wine. That's not to say the zinfandel grape is new. Bottles of wine were first labelled with the name "Zinfandel" as far back as the 1880s in California. First, in the 1980s red wine was touted as having medicinal effects and a red wine boom hit the US. California started planting zinfandel by the county, because it grew so well in that state. Then white wine rose in popularity, and the wineries with acres of zinfandel grape planted wondered if they could make a wine out of it. Thus white zinfandel was born. In essence, to make a white zinfandel the winmaker peels the red skins off the red zinfandel grapes. Without those skins, the resulting wine is light in color, sweet in flavor and without the harsh / rich flavors found in red wines. This is how blush wines are made. Red Zinfandel is an "American Classic" wine. It was even originally thought to be made of native Californian grapes. Research has now shown that the zinfandel grape originated in Italy, but this wine is now primarily grown in California. Zinfandel grows its best in cool, coastal locations. The color of a zinfandel wine is deep red, bordering on black. Zinfandel is a spicy, peppery wine, with a hint of fruity flavor - berries or dark cherries are often the taste range. Zinfandel goes well with "typical American" food - pizza, burgers, etc. It's hearty enough to match up with thick red sauces. Red zinfandel should be served at around 65 degrees, which is NOT room temperature nor fridge temperature. It's somewhere in the middle. It tastes best in a narrow-mouthed glass. Most people like to drink zinfandels young - within a year or two - but there are also quite a few zinfandels that age well. Note that the flavor becomes much different, far more mellow. It's completely up to you if you favor the taste of a young zin over an old! Note that the red zinfandel grape is also used to make white zinfandel wine. The exact same grape is used in both wines. To make white zinfandel, the winemaker removes the red skins before making the wine. The red skins are what give the robust flavor and color to red zinfandel wine. Without the skins, a white zinfandel ends up being light and sweet
Dialog Reached an Agreement with Apple to Support Apple's Chip Research and Development in All Aspec
Apple keeps on developing its own chips. The industry is worried about the fate of dialog. Now there are new developments in the relationship between the two.$600 million dealOn October 11, dialog, Apple's power management IC supplier, announced that dialog reached an agreement with apple that dialog would license some power management technologies to apple and transfer some of its assets and 300 R & D engineers to apple to support Apple's chip R & D.The announcement said that Apple would pay dialog $300 million in cash for the transaction and advance $300 million for dialog products purchased in the next three years. Dialog has won a wide range of new contracts from apple, including the development and supply of power management, audio subsystem, charging and other mixed signal ICs. The new contract revenue is expected to start in 2019 and accelerate in 2020 and 2021.Dialog said that the 300 employees transferred to Apple account for about 16% of the total number of dialog employees. These employees have worked closely with apple for many years. This transformation will promote deeper cooperation between the two companies.Dialog CEO Jalal bagherli stressed that this transaction once again confirmed the long-term cooperative relationship between dialog and apple and demonstrated the strong business and technical value of dialog.Apple said that the transferred dialog employees would stay in Europe and report to Johnny srouji, senior vice president of hardware technology, who is responsible for supervising Apple's chip design."Dialog has deep expertise in chip development. We are glad to have this group of talented engineers who have supported our products for a long time and now work directly for apple," said Johnny srouji, senior vice president of Apple hardware technology. "Our relationship with dialog can be traced back to the early iPhone, and we look forward to establishing a long-term partnership with them."Dialog said that the company's revenue will not be affected by the agreement this year. It will continue to supply apple with products currently being produced, and will continue to provide chips to other customers. The transaction is expected to be completed in the first half of 2019 and is currently awaiting regulatory approval.Dialog intends to launch a stock repurchase program of up to 10% of the issued shares after the transaction update in the third quarter.Both sides are happy?It is reported that this is Apple's largest acquisition of its suppliers. Can this transaction achieve a win-win situation for both sides?As a well-known power management IC enterprise, dialog's global market share is about 20%. The company has been supplying Apple since the advent of the first generation iPhone. Apple is its largest customer. In 2016, apple contributed more than 70% of dialog's total revenue.However, with apple increasingly focusing on self-developed power management IC, dialog is facing the crisis of being abandoned by apple.At the end of November 2017, the media reported that Apple was developing its own power management chip, which led to a sharp drop in dialog's share price. In December 2017, dialog issued a statement confirming that Apple has sufficient resources and capabilities to independently develop power management chips, and may do so in the next few years. This statement led to a sharp drop of 23% in dialog's share price that day.At that time, dialog CEO Jalal bagherli said that he would continue to supply power management chips to apple in 2018. In an interview in May this year, he also said that Apple had entrusted the chip design of many devices in 2019 and 2020 to dialog at the beginning of this year.However, at the end of May this year, dialog publicly said that Apple plans to increase the suppliers of power management chips (pmics) to two for one of its three new iPhone models, changing the situation that dialog supplied separately in the past, which means that dialog will receive 30% less orders from apple this year than expected.In the view of the industry, if dialog fails to properly handle its relationship with apple, it may be another imagination in the future. Now, the transaction with apple is good in the eyes of more people. After the news was announced, dialog's share price in Germany rose 34%, the largest increase since 2002.Karsten iltgen, an analyst at Bankhaus Lampe, said that through this transaction, dialog gained more, not just time.For apple, acquiring some of dialog's assets is undoubtedly a solid foundation for its self-developed chip road.
Huawei 5g Technology Helps Beijing Unicom 5g Network Reach 3088mbps Peak Speed
After China Telecom and China Mobile, the experimental 5g base station of China Unicom has also been quietly opened, which can be regarded as the public test of the corresponding network before the operator tries to commercialize 5g. For ordinary users, they can more intuitively feel how fast the network speed will be under 5g network.HUAWEI's new technology gives China Unicom 5G awesome speed up to 386MB/sSince there is no mobile phone supporting 5g network on the market, in order to enable users to experience 5g network, China Unicom converts 5g signal into Wi Fi signal through 5g CPE, which is used by experimenters by scanning code access. At the same time, China Unicom also provides real-time display to facilitate users to see the gap between 5g and 4G network speeds.From the actual experience, we can see that the 5g network speed can easily reach 1964mbps (245.5 MB / s), while the 4G network speed of China Unicom is only 36mbps (4.5 MB / s). For downloading a 300MB file, 5g can be done in a few seconds, while 4G takes a few minutes.245.5 MB / S is obviously not the highest 5g network speed of China Unicom at present. They showed the achievements of using the latest technology of Huawei. Through Huawei DC dual connection technology (5g terminals are connected through 4G and 5g networks to achieve higher coverage), the peak network speed of China Unicom's 5g network at this stage can reach 3088 Mbps (386 MB / s), which should be among all operators at present, 5g network open test, the fastest speed.China Unicom has obvious 5g advantages, and the 5g network traffic charge will not be expensiveAccording to the information given by the Ministry of industry and information technology, among the three major domestic operators, China Unicom will obtain 5g test spectrum with a bandwidth of 3500mhz-3600mhz and a total of 100MHz, which is the advantage of their early 5g network business. Because this is the golden spectrum of 5g network and the frequency spectrum mainly developed by global operators, it has extensive and mature terminal support, At the same time, the cost of building the network is relatively cheaper.The network speed under 5g network is faster, which means that you consume more traffic. What ordinary users are most worried about is the tariff. Previously, China Mobile said that 5g traffic is affordable and will not be very expensive, and China Unicom and China Telecom basically agree with this view. Firstly, 5g network can carry many times more terminals than 4G network. Secondly, the profit model of operators under 5g network is to split traffic. The biggest source of profit is enterprises, such as 5g network slice realization (dynamic billing), for live broadcasting of sports and concerts, and 5g delay realization is for AR / VR, games, etc, The traffic used by ordinary users only bears the most basic basic billing.It should also be noted that your traffic usage will increase under the 5g network. According to the data released by the Ministry of industry and information technology in November, the per capita traffic under the 4G network is nearly 6GB, which may increase in the future, but 10GB will be a threshold. Zhu Hanwu, deputy general manager of Guangdong Mobile, once said at the China Mobile 5g forum that the Dou (per capita monthly traffic) under the 5g network is at least 60g, Maybe 100g is more common.What is the experience under 5g network?5g network has two characteristics: first, fast network speed and second, low delay. The first is that the network speed is faster. For the 5g network currently provided by China Unicom, the fastest speed can reach 386 MB / s, and the average speed should also be 125 MB / s. at this speed, you can watch 4K and 8K videos online in seconds, and the progress bar can be adjusted freely without any jamming or buffering.In addition, with the feature of lower delay, you can experience more realistic VR games. The game picture and sound can be highly unified under the 5g network. For example, when multiple space environments perform synchronous concert ensemble, you can clearly hear the feedback of music at all levels. For game lovers, different servers are under the 5g network, And there won't be any Caton before.How is the 5g progress of China Unicom?According to the official information given by China Unicom, in the early stage of 5g network construction, they carried out it simultaneously in 16 cities, namely Beijing (and xiong'an), Wuhan, Qingdao, Tianjin, Nanjing, Shanghai, Hangzhou, Fuzhou, Shenzhen, Zhengzhou, Chengdu, Chongqing, Guiyang, Guangzhou and Shenyang. In the third quarter of 2019, a commercial 5g network will be built in the country. At that time, they will try to commercial 5g network in some key cities, and the formal commercial use is expected to be in 2020.This article is from Silicon Valley analysts.

City Plans to Reach 65 Per Cent Landfill Diversion, Implement Curbside Yard Waste Pickup
The City of Regina fellshort of its goal to divert 40 per cent of waste from the city landfill, but hopesto do better going forward."When the targets were set in 2011, there was anticipation that these programs could be introduced and implemented in a fairly quick pace," said Lisa Legault, director of solid waste. "What we found is that it took longer than expected to get the blue cart program on the street. Once it was implemented, our focus turned towards supporting our residents and promoting recycling."The 2011 Waste Plan Regina set the40 per cent waste diversion target by 2015. Now the cityexpects to hit 65 per cent by 2020 with new services now in development, almost ready for implementation. Over the last few years, the City of Regina has promoted recycling through media campaigns, public outreach and presentations to get residents to change their behaviours in regards to waste. The education campaign appears to be working.In 2014, 18 per cent of waste was diverted, rising to 20 per cent in 2016. In addition, blue carts are set out 18 of 26 collection days per year on average. Each bin is about 72 per cent full, but they also contain 11 per cent non-recyclable material."Given what we see, there are still improvements to be made," Legault said.One of the new plans being implemented in 2017, if there is budget approval, is the recycling pilot project for city-owned facilities, including arenas and leisure centres. This will provide the public the ability to recycle while at those facilities. As well, the city will start looking at a recycling program for non-residential venues."We will be looking at recycling more at an office building, fleet garages, that sort of thing," Legault said, adding that 70 per cent of waste in a landfill comes from non-residential sectors. "It is important we look at how well our residents recycle, and how the businesses within the Regina area do as well."Later this year, the city will also look at aproposed curbside leaf and yard waste program. Currently, yard waste can be taken to leaf and yard depots in the city. In 2016, 411 tonnes of leaf and yard waste was diverted from the landfill by residents, which represented a 32 per cent increase from the previous year.While that form of organic waste disposal increased, treecycle depots saw a usage decrease of 42 per cent this year."There has been a significant decrease in natural trees that are purchased during the holidays," Legault said. "I think that is a primary reason. It is a significant decrease from 10 years ago."Overall, residents appear to be very happy with the recycling service in Regina and agree with its importance. In 2016, 96 per cent of respondents stated they agreed that it is important to reduce the amount of household waste going into the landfill."We are really excited that people are happy with the recycling program," Legault said. "Having a few years of experience with the community when it comes to recycling, we are looking at other opportunities to enhance the recycling program as much as we can."Legault stated that residents have been asking for the opportunity to recycle more products, and that the city is looking into the possibility."The most common requests are plastic bags and things like disposable coffee cups," Legault said. "As a city and as a government, it is important to us to ensure that the value added in that cost to add to the program, is appropriate for the value that is provided to residents."
Health Data Breaches on the Rise
Large-scale health data breaches reported by doctors and health plans have been rising steadily, a new report shows.From 2010 to 2013, nearly 1000 large breaches affected more than 29 million individual health records, and more than half resulted from theft or loss of laptops, thumb drives and paper records, according to researchers with access to government data.Hacking incidents more than doubled during those years but still represented less than a third of all breaches.While electronic data security and privacy is not a problem that is unique to healthcare, individually identifiable health data cannot be easily reset or changed once it has been compromised like credit card information can, for example, said lead author Dr. Vincent Liu of the Kaiser Permanente Division of Research in Oakland, California.Electronic health records and other emerging technologies for using health data have great potential to improve the delivery of high-value healthcare, however, we must ensure that our patients' data remains secure, Liu told Reuters Health by email.He and his coauthors analyzed the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services database of breaches of unencrypted health information reported by Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) covered entities. They only included breaches affecting at least 500 individuals, and where the information could be traced back to individual patients.Between 2010 and 2013, there were 949 of these large unauthorized acquisitions, accesses, uses or disclosures, involving more than 29 million records.The yearly number of breaches rose from 214 in 2010 to 236 in 2011, 234 in 2012 and 265 in 2013.Most involved electronic health records, and a third involved laptop computers or portable electronic devices.These numbers, published in the Journal of the American Medical Association, only include breaches that were recognized, reported and affected at least 500 records, so they likely underestimate the true number occurring each year.We found that as many as 30 million records were compromised in a four-year span, Liu said. If each of these represented records from a unique patient, it could suggest that as many as 1 of every 11 Americans' healthcare data has been compromised.Hacking increased over the study period, from 12 percent to 27 percent of incidents. But the physical theft of unsecure paper or electronic records accounted for 55 percent of breaches.Thus, while hacking represents a serious threat to the security of healthcare data, improved cybersecurity alone is not a panacea for our data security problems, Liu said.Many breaches occur due to inadequate practices, like failure to encrypt data, or providers loading data onto thumb drives and carrying them around outside of the healthcare setting, said Dr. David Blumenthal of The Commonwealth Fund in New York, who co-authored an editorial about the results.A lot of that is about changing behavior of healthcare institutions and providers, Blumenthal told Reuters Health by phone.Concerned patients can ask at the reception desk of their doctors office or hospital about what security measures are taken with their health information, he said.I dont think that people will necessarily understand what is said to them or that the responses will be accurate, but knowing that people care creates an immensely powerful force for change, Blumenthal said.People may be getting better at recognizing and reporting data leaks, which would explain their apparent increase over time, he said.The breaches all incur federal penalties, but the penalties are not sufficient or stringent enough, he said.Electronic health records do have tremendous value, however, Liu said.Leveraging information through technology, including electronic health records (EHRs) means that doctors in hospitals have access to full health records where and when they need them and . . . have all of the information about all of the patients all of the time, he said.So there are benefits as well as risks that healthcare providers and others will need to continue to address in the new age, Liu said.
Let's Talk About the Application of Thermal Conductive Silica Gel in LED Lighting Industry
Thermal conductive silica gel sheet is a widely used thermal conductive interface material. It is in the form of sheet, high pressure shrinkage, high reliability, high temperature resistance, excellent thermal conductivity and insulation, with viscosity on the surface, simple and convenient construction. It can be die-cut and punched according to the size and shape of heating devices.Heat conductive silica gel sheet is a kind of heat conductive medium material made by calendering with silica gel as the base material and adding various auxiliary materials such as metal oxides. It is usually called heat conductive gasket, heat conductive silica gel gasket, heat conductive silicon film, soft heat conductive gasket, heat conductive silica gel pad, etc. it is specially produced for the design scheme of using the gap to transfer heat and can fill the gap, It not only completes the heat transfer between the heating part and the heat dissipation part, but also plays the roles of insulation, shock absorption and sealing. It can meet the design requirements of miniaturization and ultra-thin equipment. It is a good heat conduction filling material with manufacturability and usability, and has a wide range of thickness and Application.Led thermal conductive silicon film is mainly used between aluminum substrate and heat sink, between aluminum substrate and shell, etc. Today, we mainly introduce the successful application of thermal conductive silica gel sheet in LED industry: there are many kinds of LED lamps. For indoor LED lamps, thermal conductive silica gel sheet with relatively low thermal conductivity is generally used, which can reduce the cost of the product and meet the needs of the product itself. For some outdoor high-power LED lamps, such as street lamps, the power is much higher than other indoor lamps, In order to better heat dissipation of lamps and improve the service life of lamps, thermal conductive silica gel sheets with relatively high thermal conductivity are generally used.The inherent viscosity of the heat-conducting silica gel sheet facilitates the construction. If the customer needs the heat-conducting silica gel sheet to have strong viscosity to replace the screw fixation, he can also choose to give one-sided or double-sided adhesive backing to the heat-conducting silica gel sheet. If the heat-conducting silica gel sheet needs to lock the screw, please remember to choose the heat-conducting silica gel sheet containing glass fiber cloth, which has the properties of anti puncture and anti tear. In short, the heat conductive silica gel sheet can be customized according to customer requirements to meet customer needs. It can be die-cut and punched according to the size and shape of heating devices.
7 Tips to Help You Sell Your Farm Fresh Eggs for More Money
The continuing trend of raising backyard chickens has had an unintended negative effect on those selling their extra eggs. Due to a steady supply of fresh eggs from backyard flocks and small local farms at markets, roadside stands and feed stores, egg prices are being kept artificially low. But there are some things you can do to help you sell your fresh eggs for a bit more money. When you begin to calculate your expenses - including egg cartons, labels, business cards, feed, supplements, supplies, the chickens themselves, plus their coop and run, not to mention a little something for your time, and gas to get to the market - it's often hard to sell a dozen eggs for a high enough price to simply break even. Many times, local eggs are sold for about the same price as store-bought eggs, despite being fresher and more nutritious AND laid by happy hens. And when you sell your eggs, you are not only competing against the low grocery-store prices, but also against other local sellers. Studies have shown that buyers will more likely make a purchase when you engage more than one of their senses. So by enticing potential shoppers' sense of touch, sight, sound and possibly even taste, you have a better chance at making that sale. Here are some tips to engage the senses, get your eggs to stand out from the crowd and possibly even fetch a premium price. If you are selling at a farmers' market or fair, crack an egg into a bowl to show potential buyers how great your eggs look. Eggs from chickens that eat a lot of herbs, grass and weeds will naturally have more vibrant yolks and look fresher than store-bought eggs from caged chickens. But you can bump up the wow factor of your chickens' egg yolks even more by feeding foods high in xanthophyll, a carotenoid with a naturally orange pigment. Some foods rich in xanthophyll include basil, carrots, corn, marigolds, parsley, pumpkin, red cabbage and the leaves of most green plants. Adding a pop of color to your cartons can entice buyers to your table. Raise some chickens that lay blue, green or cream-colored eggs to create some eye candy in your cartons! Chicken eggs can be a dime a dozen because of the large supply available, but there are other types of poultry that lay eggs. Duck eggs are larger than chicken eggs and thought to be to be better for baking due to their higher fat content. Tiny quail eggs are considered a delicacy and are often pickled or used by five-star chefs to top burgers or salads due to their smaller size and relative rarity. There might also be a market for turkey and goose eggs in your area - and you will likely be able to set your own price. Studies show that someone is more likely to purchase an item if they have touched or held it. Consider putting out a basket of eggs on your table and handing an egg to anyone who stops at your table. Give out free samples - let people take home an egg to try it for themselves. Hopefully, that will compel them to come back the next week to buy - if they do not buy a dozen eggs on the spot. Make your packaging unique. Instead of simply packaging your eggs in cartons and stacking them on the table, why not tie a pretty ribbon or some baker's twine around the carton and attach a wildflower or sprig of herbs? Maybe even tuck a simple egg recipe in. Or fill large baskets or metal pails with eggs and let your buyers hand select a dozen to put in their carton. And do not forget to pass out business cards. Sending each customer away with your contact information is a must to make it easy for them to locate you when they are ready to reorder. Studies have shown that chickens raised on pasture produce more nutritious eggs than chickens that never see the light of day or step foot on grass. Pasture-raised chickens have access to a more diverse diet, including a variety of forages and insects, which can lead to increased levels of vitamins A and E and omega-3 fatty acids. Other studies have shown that chickens raised on grass lay eggs that are lower in cholesterol than those raised on a commercial feed-only diet. Share this information with your potential customers by printing out a nutritional comparison on cards or handouts that they can take home with them - and be sure the handout has your contact information on it too! If possible, play a recording of chickens softly clucking with an occasional rooster crowing at your booth. The sound of happy chickens in the background will work to engage yet another sense and hopefully give your buyers the urge to bring home some farm fresh eggs! And back to sight for a minute, photographs of your chickens or a large poster showing them happily roaming a field can help reinforce the positive image of your farm and your eggs - you are putting faces and even names to the producers! Using a little creativity will give you a leg up on your competition and hopefully fetch higher prices for your delicious, fresh eggs! Also check your state Department of Agriculture's egg laws or cottage-food regulations, so you are aware of egg grading, handling and storing requirements, rules about the reuse of cartons and carton labeling regulations - including the use of such terms as organic, free-range and pasture-raised. Your local extension service should be able to point you in the right direction to get that information or you can find it online. Egg laws vary state by state.Where do they sell jacuzzi?Jacuzzis R us Sells pretty good ones ay low prices Or craigslist Has one for free in LA Go quick
Need Help Finding Kitchen Items and Sofa?
The daybed and the island appear custom made to me. Any of the kitchen redesigners should be able to replicate the island without difficulty. The "tiles" on the floor are flagstone and any slab or rock yard has them, but to use on subflooring you need them guaged so that they all lay even. You really should go to a granite yard to look at the slabs because every yard calls their granite colors by something different with a few exceptions that are industry wide (like absolute black granite because it comes from only one mine in India)1. dog urine on my sofa?I just bought this product last week. It takes EVERYTHING out. It's called Folex and you can find it at Walmart. It's cheap too2. Is my sofa ruined? Help!?!?Just in case scratch it all over. Apply the oil to make it match. This is creativity. You just might like the new look3. Bernhardt sofa back support fallen off internally. Springs OK. Any ideas how to fix the sofa?Well, hubby fixed ours by opening it up, finding the broken piece and replacing it with fresh wood and screws and like the guy earlier stated, problem solve--then he used his staple gun to put the upholstery back in place. Worked quite well and looked professional4. Is buying a sofa from Walmart a good idea?Well even Target does not sell quality furniture. We bought a 5 piece dining room table a year ago and it's scratched up. We do not use it daily, it definitely was not worth $225 and likely can not sell it. I would suggest Garage Sale, Estate Sales, Dock 86, Secondhand shops, or Slumberland had a pretty decent sale on the July 4th, I am sure they will have a great sales weekend Labor Day, We bought a chocolate chenille couch for $580 normally $900. Free Delievry.5. how can i get rid of an unwanted sofa?Place it for free on the Craiglist in the free items section. Depending on where you live someone will be there in a snap to pick it up. If you have a digital camera take pictures also and upload them on the listing. Good Luck.6. How can I save my sofa?Get a strong piece of plywood and cover it with foam batting and stick it underneath the couch cushions. It should give enough support until you can replace it. Congrats on the new home.7. how to get candle wax out of upholstry [ sofa ] ?ummm...sarah has a point...but with something that is as fragile as micro-fiber I think personally I would allow the wax to completely harden and pull up as many pieces as I could as carefully as I could . Just so you do not over stretch the fabirc and cause raised spots. you could gently scrape away the rest. If there is still some in the couch...look up the manufacturers recommendations with water. If its okay with water, then use an ice cube to freeze more of it off. Or, you could even just put the ice in a ziplock bag and just do it that way. I would not take an iron to the couch...microfiber is a bit too satin-y for that. Just work slowly and carefully...and keep at it. Good luck.8. How to make Sofa seats "higher"?You could raise the sofa by placing concrete blocks under all 4 corners. Then get some boards & cover them in fabric or paint them or stain them & place them like a "skirt" under the 3 sides of the sofa. You could even give it an industrial look by using metal sheets or gridwork. As for the cushions, you do not say if they are attached or loose. If they are loose, hopefully they are zippered. In which case you will go to a fabric store & buy some dacron sheets & wrap the cushions with the sheets using a spray glue so it does not shift. Use a dry cleaning bag over the cushion to get it to slide easily back into the cover. Using dacron will probably be a lot less expensive than buying new foam cores, but look into that also - just find an upholstery outlet in your area. You can also just put boards under your cushions, but that will just feel firm, not more comfortable. If your cushions are attached there is not much you can do. You can always look for a sofa on craigslist, but just be sure that you disinfect it.
