Shanghai ... solar refrigeration in a warming globe Since the beginning of the last century, average global temperature has risen by about 0.6 K according to UN Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC). It is also warned that the temperature may further increase by 1.4–4.5 K until 2100 (Climate Change, 2001). Having realized the seriousness of the situation, the world community decided to take initiatives to stop the process. One of such efforts is the Kyoto Protocol, a legally binding agreement under which industrialized countries will reduce their collective emissions of greenhouse gases by 5.2% compared to the year 1990. Especially regarding the reduction of carbon dioxide, being an inevitable byproduct * Corresponding author. Tel.: þ43 505506668; fax: þ43 505506613. E-mail addresses: email@example.com (D.S.

On April 25, 1954, proud Bell executives held a press conference where they impressed the media with the Bell Solar Battery powering a radio transmitter that was broadcasting voice and music. One journalist thought it important for the public to know that “linked together electrically, the Bell solar cells deliver power from the sun at the rate of 50 watts per square yard, while the atomic cell announced recently by the RCA Corporation merely delivers a millionth of a watt” over the same area. An article in U.S. News & World Report speculated that one day such silicon strips “may provide more power than all the world’s coal, oil, and uranium.” The New York Times probably best summed up what Chapin, Fuller, and Pearson had accomplished. On page one of its April 26, 1954, issue, the Times stated that the construction of the first solar module to generate useful amounts of power marks “the beginning of a new era, leading eventually to the realization of one of mankind’s most cherished dreams—the harnessing of the almost limitless energy of the sun for the uses of civilization.” In 1954, the world had less than a watt of solar cells capable of running electrical equipment. Fast-forward through 50 years of continued discovery and development of silicon and other PV materials and this is what you’ll see. Today, a billion watts of electricity generated by solar cells help to power the satellites so necessary for modern life, ensure the safe passage of ships and trains, bring abundant water, lighting, and telephone service to many who had done without, and supply clean power to those already connected to the grid. The worldwide market for solar electric energy has grown by 20%–25% per year over the past 10 years. According to Solarbuzz, the international solar electric industry now generates around $3–$4 billion (U.S.) in revenues each year.

Rowling’s unsparingly negative portrait of the Ministry of Magic and its bureaucrats. I decided to sit down and reread each of the Harry Potter books with an eye toward discerning what exactly J.K. Rowling’s most recent novel tells us about the nature, societal role, and legitimacy of government. I did this for several reasons. First, with all due respect to Richard Pos13 ner, Cass Sunstein, or Peter Schuck, no book released in 2005 will have more influence on what kids and adults around the world think about government than The Half-Blood Prince. It would be difficult to overstate theinfluence and market penetration of the Harry Potter series. Somewhere over the last few years, the Harry Potter novels passed from a children’sliterature sensation to a bona fide international happening. Second, Rowling’s scathing portrait of government is surprisingly strident and effective. This is partly because her critique works on so many levels: the functions of government (see above), the structure of government, and the bureaucrats who run the show. All three elements work together to depict a Ministry of Magic run by self-interested bureaucrats bent on increasing and protecting their power, often to the detriment of the public at large. In other words, Rowling creates a public-interest scholar’s dream—or nightmare—government. Her critique is also particularly effective because, despite how awful Rowling’s Ministry of Magic looks and acts, it bears such a tremendous resemblance to current Anglo-American government. Rowling’s negative picture of government is thus both subtle and extraordinarily piercing. Taken in the context of the Harry Potter novels and the personalities of the bureaucrats involved, each of the above acts of government misconduct seems perfectly natural and familiar to the reader. The critique works because the reader identifies her own government with Rowling’s Ministry of Magic. Lastly, The Half-Blood Prince is a tremendous work of fiction that deserves a more careful reading of its themes and plot. It continues a trend in the Harry Potter novels: over the last six books, Rowling’s Harry Potter novels have gotten longer, more complex, and much, much darker. The first two Harry Potter books tell straightforward stories of good triumphing over evil—Harry defeating the evil Lord Voldemort—at the magical Hogwarts...

How To Change Blown Fuse Or Reset Circuit Breaker Because the "blowing" of a fuse results from the overloading of an electrical circuit, many people think that the fuse box is a dangerous area to approach, as it controls the flow of so much electricity. Nothing could be further from the truth. Of course, it is always advisable to approach electrical apparatus with caution; but there should be no fear whatsoever attached to the common chore of changing a burnt fuse. We would, however, like to give you a few pointers before we begin the actual procedure for that simple task. As far as fuses are concerned, the cardinal rule is Be Prepared. That is to say, you should make a list of all the different types and sizes of fuse in your fuse box, and make sure you have three or four of each on hand at all times. Because, if one "blows" on Sunday, you'll be whistling in the dark till Monday. Now, if you really want to be secure when working around your fuse box, take our humbly, offered advice, and make the following chart: 1. Make a diagram of your fuse or circuit breaker box, as shown in Figure 54A. 2. Number each fuse or circuit breaker, both on the chart and beside each in the box, making sure that your numbers correspond exactly with one another. 3. Turn on all the lights in your apartment or house. 4. Now, one at a time, unscrew each fuse or trip circuit breaker and see which lights go off. 5. Mark down beside each fuse or circuit breaker in your chart the area of the house or apartment each controls See Figure 54B. 6. Once you have completed this, tape your chart beside the box in plain site. 7. From then on, if the power fails in your bedroom, say, you will know exactly which fuse or circuit breaker has disconnected and must be corrected by consultining the chart.
