Okay, so what is a robot? Per definition of en.wikipedia.org, the Holder of All Human Knowledge, a robot is: a mechanical device that can perform physical tasks. A robot may act under the direct control of a human (eg. the robotic arm of the space shuttle) or autonomously under the control of a pre-programmed computer. In the context of Science Olympiad and other small engineering competitions, we are looking at the first type, human control. There are plenty of opportunities to put autonomous features into a Science Olympiad robot, but if you are reading this for content, it is likely beyond your scope and unnecessary. Therefore, for the purposes of this text only, a robot will be defined as: A mechanical device, operated under the direct control of a human, that is engineered to perform a specific task or accomplish a goal. In this case, the goal is to compete in Science Olympiad's Robot Ramble event. And win. More on that later. I'm not smart enough to build a robot! Yes you are. Modern technology has developed to the point at which it permeates our lives. One side effect of this is that it is much easier to learn and try out than in years past. The hobby robotics market is only increasing, and there are a number of companies that specifically make products catered to robots and their builders. Full directions and kits are available to build or program small robots. In some cases, they're even premade, and all you have to do is mess with them. This is often the best way to go about learning.
The MetaCheck is an affordable metabolic analyzer that provides an accurate, professional metabolic rate measurement. Measuring a person’s metabolic rate allows you to construct an effective weight loss plan based on individual caloric needs. In the past, these measurements have only been available by using cumbersome, expensive equipment, and were generally only available at hospitals. Today the MetaCheck provides the same critical data with just a simple 10 minute breath test at a fraction of the cost. Plus, the MetaCheck is simple to use and maintain, using disposable testing supplies and requiring no additional computer to operate.
Processing large volumes of Linked Data requires sophisticated methods and tools. In the recent years we have mainly focused on systems based on relational databases and bespoke systems for Linked Data processing. Cloud computing offerings such as SimpleDB or BigQuery, and cloud-enabled NoSQL systems including Cassandra or CouchDB as well as frameworks such as Hadoop offer appealing alternatives along with great promises concerning performance, scalability and elasticity. In this paper we state a number of Linked Dataspeciﬁc requirements and review existing cloud computing offerings as well as NoSQL systems that may be used in a cloud computing setup, in terms of their applicability and usefulness for processing datasets on a large-scale. Although there are more and more data sources that are available over the Web, it is still relatively rare that a dataset is linked to another one. An important trend over the past decade has been the growing awareness of the importance of “light-weight” approaches to integrating data. The argument for lightweight approaches was best made in (Franklin et al., 2005). With these approaches the goal is to create loosely integrated “dataspaces” instead of completely integrated databases or distributed databases.
•Analyze all the items showing high stress levels and figure out how to rein them in, particularly if you feel your health is being significantly affected. But keep in mind that any such scale, along with its categories, is subjective and that some stressors, such as deadlines, can actually have positive consequences. • Remember that stress differs for all of us. Things like bungee jumping that are distressful for some may be pleasurable for others. Similarly, no stress-reduction technique works for everyone. Jogging, meditation or yoga are great for some but can actually prove stressful when arbitrarily imposed on others. Find out what works for you. • Don't automatically assume that your headaches or other complaints are stressrelated just because you have a high job stress score. A physician should always be consulted if you experience new symptoms, or if past problems seem to be getting worse, because they may be due to something else that is much easier to treat in its early stages. • Finally, although stress is difficult to define, the feeling of having little control is always distressful. Anything you can do to gain more control over your daily activities will provide powerful stress reduction rewards.
The global economy looks much healthier as we begin 2014 compared with 12 months ago. Then, fears over the ‘fiscal cliff’ in the United States, the recession in Europe and the rebalancing of China’s economy were dampening growth prospects across the world, and globally, business confidence was at its lowest since the financial crisis.Today, global growth prospects look a lot brighter with most large developed economies, especially Japan, the United Kingdom and the United States expected to grow strongly in 2014. The optimism of business leaders in these economies has increased dramatically over the past year and the hope is that rising confidence will encourage them to invest more in their operations and their people to achieve long-term, sustainable growth. However, the situation in many emerging markets is something of a mirror image. Since the United States Federal Reserve announced plans to begin tapering its huge quantitative easing programme, many economies have seen their currencies slide and growth suffer. Business confidence in China, Brazil, India and South Africa all fell to record lows in 2013, and in Russia and Turkey to record lows since the financial crisis began. Confidence has rebounded, especially in China and India, but with many of these economies suffering from slowing growth, sliding currencies and social unrest, 2014 could be a period of significant adjustment. The eurozone crisis also remains delicately poised. Following a contraction of 0.4% in 2013, the currency bloc is expected to return to growth in 2014, but while Germany is expected to expand robustly, the next two largest economies in the currency bloc, France and Italy, look set to struggle and their business communities are amongst the least optimistic in the world.
This report focuses on the vital role that America’s entrepreneurs and small business owners play in strengthening the U.S. economy. The Obama Administration has put new initiatives and increased incentives in place to support small businesses – including seventeen tax cuts, improved access to capital and expanded support for high growth businesses – as they continue to out‐compete, and out‐innovate the rest of the world. Over the past two and a half years, President Obama has enacted sweeping changes to support, reinvest, and revitalize America’s economy in the wake of a major recession. As a result, large U.S. firms are now making powerful new investments, including building new facilities and buying new equipment. With regards to job creation, however, we know that America’s small businesses pack the biggest punch, creating two out of every three new jobs in the U.S. each year. These small businesses are the cornerstone of our communities. They are the source of pride for working families. And, every day, we see America’s entrepreneurs continue to step out and take risks with new ideas in order to help us win the future. This report details the many investments this Administration has made since January 2009 to support small businesses, investments that include: expanding access to capital, supporting startups and high‐growth firms, training America’s workforce, reducing barriers to entrepreneurship, increasing small business exports, and much more.
The installation process is the same for each cylinder with the exception of the removal of the throttle body on the left hand side because the cam chain tensioner is more difficult to access with its positioning behind the throttle body. DO ONE SIDE AT A TIME, ROTATE THE ENGINE TO TDC FOR EACH CYLINDER BEFORE REMOVING THE CAM CHAIN TENSIONER, ROTATE THE CAM TO LOCATE THE PIN AND SEAT THE SPROCKET ON THE CAM CORRECTLY. REINSTALL THE CAM CHAIN TENSIONER BEFORE ROTATING THE ENGINE AND MAKE SURE THE CAM TIMING ARROW LINES UP WITH THE MARK ON THE CHAIN.CHECK THE TIMING BY ROTATING THE ENGINE ONE OR MORE FULL CYCLES BEFORE MOVING ON TO THE OTHER SIDE. IF YOU FEEL THE SLIGHTEST RESISTANCE DO NOT FORCE THE ENGINE PAST THIS POINT. Ensure that whichever side you are working ON is positioned to Top Dead Centre (TDC). When the timing chain sprocket covers have been removed you will see the arrows on the sprocket will be parallel to the ground at the 3 o’clock and 9 o’clock positions (in line with the motion of the pistons.) ALWAYS REMOVE THE CAM CHAIN TENSIONER FIRST. Ensure that you use good quality allen/torx bits so that you reduce the risk of them breaking or damaging the cam retaining bolt.
After watching the Construction Video from August 4, 2008 (www.apogeerockets.com/Rocketry_Videos/Rocketry_Video_16.asp), I wanted to show how to get a smooth, rounded leading edge on a paper covered and reinforced balsa ﬁn. Normally, paper covering involves two separate pieces of paper, one glued or stuck to each side of the ﬁn. Papering the leading edge like this might make it prone to peeling after a few ﬂights. This method should alleviate the problem. Papering a rounded leading edge is more aerodynamic and gives a more ﬁnished look to the ﬁn. Note by Tim Van Milligan: This method, because it uses spray adhesive to hold down the skin to the wood will not yield a ﬁn that is as strong as the one shown in the video referenced above. The spray adhesive I’ve used in the past had a rubbery texture to it, so it can ﬂex with the wood. While I have not tested it, my gut feeling is the edges might peel up if you don’t tack them down with water-thin viscosity super-glue. But the big advantage of Chris’ method is that it is a lot quicker to apply to the ﬁns than what I showed in the video, and the ﬁn is in no danger of warping due to the water in the glue.
