The sling and spreader bar should be adjusted so the lifting hooks are vertical to prevent bending the lifter brackets. To ensure proper weight distribution, all provided lifter brackets must be used. NOTICE: A spreader bar must be used at all times in conjunction with the front and rear lifter brackets to lift the EGR engine to ensure that no engine damage will result. The brackets are designed to lift vertically. 1. Remove the engine from the vehicle.
In the Details The appearance of any packaging solution is driven by a variety of factors, the most significant of which have a direct impact on the safety and usability of a product. On top of this, commercial motivations must also be taken into account, so the final design must strike a balance between a surprisingly wide range of considerations Packaging can be a major factor in what brings a product to life. With the ever-increasing expansion of the pharmaceutical industry, there is continuous pressure for biopharmaceutical companies to develop and launch new drug products. Coupled with the increasing number of drug products coming off patent, greater importance is being placed on the use of packaging for product differentiation. Packaging is therefore fast becoming one of the most important considerations in the growth and success of any drug product. This is evident from the global healthcare packaging component market being currently valued at $87.3 billion (£54.6 billion) (1). Function of Packaging Packaging can be considered from various aspects, but for many within the pharmaceutical industry, its main purposes are:...
Ksenia Polyakova Packaging design as a Marketing tool and Desire to purchase, 72 pages, 2 appendices Saimaa University of Applied Science Faculty of Business Administration, Lappeenranta Degree Programme in International Business Bachelor’s Thesis 2013 Instructor: Mr. Riku Hytönen Senior Lecturer, Saimaa University of Applied Sciences The purpose of the study was to examine the consumer perception on different design elements of a milk package and to provide essential information for the companies about the consumer attraction and importance of design attributes from the consumer point of view. The theoretical framework was based on the secondary data (articles and books) and included core concepts of packaging, packaging design, consumer behavior, consumer perception, and consumer attraction. The mixed method was selected for acquiring and analyzing the research results. Quantitative data was collected from 30 questionnaire responses and was analyzed with the computer program Excel. Qualitative data was obtained from two interviews conducted with the companies, Valio Ltd and Tetra Pak Ltd. The results of the study revealed the importance of packaging design in consumer buying behavior. By examining the consumer perception, it was found out that packaging design elements such as graphics, color, and product information play a key role in decision making and ensure consumer’s attention. Based on the findings, it was defined that successful milk packaging design could be created by the cooperation between the consumer and the company. Further research could investigate other product packages’ design elements.
Organizations that collect large amounts of unstructured data are increasingly turning to nonrelational databases, now frequently called NoSQL databases. M any organizations collect vast amounts of customer, scientific, sales, and other data for future analysis. Traditionally, most of these organizations have stored structured data in relational databases for subsequent access and analysis. However, a growing number of developers and users have begun turning to various types of nonrelational—now frequently called NoSQL—databases. Nonrelationa l dat a ba ses— including hierarchical, graph, and object-oriented databases—have been around since the late 1960s. However, new types of NoSQL databases are being developed. And only now are they beginning to gain market traction. Different NoSQL databases take different approaches. What they have in common is that they’re not relational. Their primary advantage is that, unlike relational databases, they handle unstructured data such as word-processing files, e-mail, multimedia, and social media efficiently. They are also easier to work with for the many developers not familiar 12 r2tec.indd 12 computer with the structured query language. SQL is the programming language used for querying and updating relational databases. Some NoSQL databases can function in a distributed setting. Users could thus scale a single database by running it across additional inexpensive machines rather than by having to run it on a single more powerful and costly machine.
How to access the Wall Street Journal Duke provides free access to WSJ articles through the library (see instructions below). Articles will be listed by date in a database. We recommend going to the WSJ website (www.wsj.com) first to identify which articles you would like to read in full. The public version of the WSJ website allows you to view news headlines and a brief description of all articles, without requiring an online subscription. The “Today’s Newspaper” tab provides the stories from that day’s front page, and each of the main sections, to help familiarize you with the layout of the print version. Guide to accessing the WSJ at Duke Libraries (need to be on Duke Network): 1. Go to the Duke Library website: http://library.duke.edu/ 2. In the catalog search box, select “Title” from the dropdown box and search “Wall Street Journal (online)”. The following page should appear: http://find.library.duke.edu/results.php?type=books&catalogsuggestions=is&catalogsou rce=duke&sourceid=homepage&searchtype=Title&query=wall+street+journal+%28onlin e%29 3. Select the first hit (Wall Street Journal (Eastern ed.: Online) by clicking on “getit@DUKE” which will take you to a different page: http://getitatduke.library.duke.edu/?sid=sersol&SS_jc=JC_001145597&title=Wall+Stree t+Journal+(online) 4. On the page above, click on third "link to Journal" on the left side of the page (1984 - present), and you'll go directly to the Wall Street Journal online. 5. Then the below page will appear and you can select a date and all the articles will appear separately: http://proquest.umi.com/pqdweb?RQT=318&pmid=117310 6. For Today’s article, click on “View most recent issue” at the top of the page. 7. You can search for the article you want, but it requires you to know the exact start of the headline, which sometimes changes. Quickest way to skim through the 125+ articles is to make sure you select to view 100 items per page (dropdown box at the bottom of the page), and select “Brief view” above the first article.

Why do the Islamic fundamentalists in general—and followers of al Qaeda in particular—resort to terrorist tactics against Americans and other Westerners around the globe? This question has haunted Americans since 9/11 and prompted a host of antiterrorist policies throughout the world. Much has been written and spoken on the subject, and more will be written and spoken in the years ahead. Political geography offers a frame of reference to learn about al Qaeda and other militant Islamic groups and their anti-West, anti–U.S. posture. To explore the point of view propounded by Osama bin Laden and others, this case study uses the ﬁve levels of analysis introduced in chapter three, examined here from a geopolitical perspective. The ﬁve levels of analysis are the: 1) international system, 2) regional, 3) state, 4) substate (tribal groups), and 5) individual. INTERNATIONAL SYSTEM LEVEL From the international system perspective, consider the following historical context of al Qaeda’s militant Islam. Militant Islamic fundamentalists and followers of Islam are heirs to one of the great civilizations of the world. While...
This project came about when trying to make a low cost autonomous robot for use in education. The idea being that students would be able to identify with the Xbox controller and enjoy hacking it into something far more interesting! The Concept: This was a concept to make a low cost autonomous programmable robot for education using low cost every day things that the students could identify with – ie. The Xbox Controller. There are of course several existing product in this market most notably the Lego NXT and the Vex Systems. Both of these allow users to build and program autonomous robots, but there are two key differences, 1) On the XBugBot the programming and the processor are not separate! 2) The price! The XBugBot can be build for around 1/10th of the cost of the competing products! The humble Xbox Controller. What is the Xbox controller? Well once connected to the PC it becomes a low cost wireless DAQ (Data Acquisition System), it has several digital inputs (Buttons) and several analogue inputs (Joy Sticks etc.), plus two motor control outputs (Vibration Motors). What can it become? - Meet XBugBot: Hack your Xbox Controller and add a couple of wheels and sensors and you get an XBugBot! How is it Controlled? Using the FlowStone graphical programming language from DSPRobotics: (www.dsprobotics.com ) FlowStone is an awesome teaching tool for science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) as is graphical so students can easily relate and understand it. Also the Xbox Controller is already pre-programmed into FlowStone so you can just use the Xbox Module and start programming your Bot. Programming and Processor:...
