If you’re just getting started and taking a look around a grow store for the ﬁrst time the range of equipment, plant products and growing methods can be bewildering -in fact, it’s almost as diverse as the variety of plants you can grow!... Highly recommended—grow tents make setting up your indoor garden so much easier! Straightforward for one person alone to construct, grow tents are light proof and reflective inside, and provide a framework upon which to hang grow lights and other equipment. Available in many different shapes and sizes. A grow light simulates the sun so it needs to switch on and off at the same time over a 24-hour cycle. Sure, it’s possible to do this manually but it really isn’t all that practical in the long term. By connecting your grow light to a timer you can be sure that your plants are receiving the right amount of light each day. Many plants use day / night length as a trigger to start producing flowers and fruit. Analogue and digital timers are available... It’s vital that your indoor garden is constantly supplied with fresh air to regulate temperature, humidity and carbon dioxide (CO2) levels for optimum plant health. Indoor gardeners commonly use extraction fans to remove old air and pump in new air. Fans are rated according to the volume of air (in cubic feet) they can move in a minute. They are also specified in terms of compatible ducting and filter diameters (e.g. 4”, 6”, 8”, 12” etc.) It’s very important to select the correct size fan for your grow space. Fan speed controllers measure the temperature in your garden and adjust the power of your extraction fans accordingly so that you stay as...

GMC ACADIA / ACADIA DENALI New for 2014: Forward Collision Alert and Lane Departure Warning, standard on Denali and available on SLT-1 and SLT-2 Two charging-only USB ports on the rear of the center console for second-row use 2014 GMC ACADIA HIGHLIGHTS SAFETY, CONVENIENCE FEATURES With its reputation for comfort, performance and efficiency, GMC Acadia has remained a popular choice since it was introduced as the brand’s first crossover SUV in 2007. Its luxury-minded Denali model, which came to market in mid-2010, has widened this midsize crossover’s appeal to customers looking for a high level of style, power and functionality. In 2014, the Acadia focuses on safety with the addition of Forward Collision Alert and Lane Departure Warning, crash-avoidance systems that use a camera and sensors to help detect when the driver is getting too close to a vehicle ahead, or when the vehicle enters another lane without the use of a turn signal. The systems alert the driver with visual cues on the dashboard, as well as audible signals. They complement Side Blind Zone Alert and Cross Traffic Alert, which were added in 2013. The camera technology was recently named a “Top Ten Tech Breakthrough of 2012” by Popular Mechanics. The new model year also brings an additional convenience feature: two charging-only USB ports on the rear of the center console to power up electronics from the second row. Acadia’s lineup for 2014 includes the SLE (with SLE-1 and SLE-2 trims), the SLT (with SLT-1 and SLT-2 trims) and the Denali models, with seven- or eight-passenger configurations. A 3.6L V-6 VVT engine that uses gasoline direct injection technology powers all Acadia models, optimizing performance and fuel economy across the board. The engine is paired with Acadia’s fuel-saving six-speed automatic transmission to help give FWD models an EPA-estimated 24 mpg on the highway. The transmission controls provide quick and consistent shifts for a commanding feel behind the wheel. All-wheel drive is also available. Towing capability for the Acadia is 5,200 pounds (2,364 kg), when...

Tutorial http://www.investopedia.com/university/forexmarket/default.asp Thanks for downloading the printable version of this tutorial. As always, we welcome any feedback or suggestions. http://www.investopedia.com/contact.aspx Table of Contents 1) Forex: Introduction 2) Forex: What Is It? 3) Forex: Reading a Quote and Understanding the Jargon 4) Forex: Benefits and Risks 5) Forex: History and Market Participants 6) Forex: Economic Theories and Data 7) Forex: Fundamental Trading Strategies 8) Forex: Technical Analysis 9) Forex: Ready To Trade? 10) Forex: The Conclusion Introduction Foreign exchange (forex or FX for short) is one of the most exciting, fast-paced markets around. Until recently, trading in the forex market had been the domain of large financial institutions, corporations, central banks, hedge funds and extremely wealthy individuals. The emergence of the internet has changed all of this, and now it is possible for average investors to buy and sell currencies easily with the click of a mouse. Daily currency fluctuations are usually very small. Most currency pairs move less than one cent per day, representing a less than 1% change in the value of the currency. This makes foreign exchange one of the least volatile financial markets around. Therefore, many speculators rely on the availability of enormous leverage to increase the value of potential movements. In the forex market, leverage can be as much as 250:1. Higher leverage can be extremely risky, but because of round-the-clock trading and deep liquidity, foreign exchange brokers have been able to make high leverage an industry standard in order to make the movements meaningful for FX traders. (Page 1 of 30) Copyright © 2010, Investopedia.com - All rights reserved. Investopedia.com – the resource for investing and personal finance education. Extreme liquidity and the availability of high leverage have helped to spur the market's rapid growth and made it the ideal place for many traders. Positions can be opened and closed within minutes or can be held for months. Currency prices are based on objective considerations of supply and demand and cannot be manipulated easily because the size of the market does not allow even the largest players, such as central banks, to move prices at will. The forex market provides plenty of opportunity for investors. However, in order to be successful, a currency trader has to understand the basics behind currency movements. The goal of this tutorial is to provide a foundation for investors or traders who are new to the currency markets. We'll cover the basics of foreign exchange, its history and the key concepts you need to understand in order to be able to participate in this market. We'll also venture into how to start trading currencies and the different types of strategies that can be employed. What Is It? The foreign exchange market is the "place" where currencies are traded. Currencies are important to most people around the world, whether they realize it or not, because currencies need to be exchanged in order to conduct foreign trade and business. If you are living in the U.S. and want to buy cheese from France, either you or the company that you buy the cheese from has to pay the French for the cheese in euros (EUR). This means that the U.S. importer would have to exchange the equivalent value of U.S. dollars (USD) into euros. The same goes for traveling. A French tourist in Egypt can't pay in euros to see the pyramids because it's not the locally accepted currency. As such, the tourist has to exchange the euros for the local currency, in this case the Egyptian pound, at the current exchange rate. The need to exchange currencies is the primary reason why the forex market is the largest, most liquid financial market in the world. It dwarfs other markets in size, even the stock market, with an average traded value of around U.S. $2,000 billion per day. (The total volume changes all the time, but as of April 2004, the Bank for International Settlements (BIS) reported that the forex market traded U.S. $1,900 billion per day.) One unique aspect of this international market is that there is no central marketplace for currency exchange. Rather, trade is conducted electronically over-the-counter (OTC), which means that all transactions occur via computer networks between traders around the world, rather than on one centralized This tutorial can be found at:

FUNCTIONAL DESCRIPTION The TEA5710 incorporates internal stabilized power supplies. The maximum supply voltage is 12 V, the minimum voltage can go down temporarily to 1.8 V without any loss in performance. The AM circuit incorporates a double balanced mixer, a one pin low-voltage oscillator (up to 30 MHz), a field-strength dependent indicator output and is designed for distributed selectivity. The AM input is designed to be connected to the top of a tuned circuit. AGC controls the IF amplification and for large signals it lowers the input impedance. The first AM selectivity can be an IFT as well as an IFT combined with a ceramic filter; the second one is an IFT. The FM circuit incorporates a tuned RF stage, a double balanced mixer, a one-pin oscillator, a field-strength indicator output and is designed for distributed IF ceramic filters. The FM quadrature detector uses a ceramic resonator. March 1994
