AUSTRALIA’S BID FOR THE 2018 FIFA WORLD CUP™ OR 2022 FIFA WORLD CUP™ “The proposal in this Bid Book represents the hopes and dreams of perhaps the world’s most sports-loving nation. Australia will welcome the world for a FIFA World Cup™, as we have welcomed the world since our nationhood little more than 200 years ago. Our Bid is financially and operationally secure. We are ready to host FIFA’s flagship event, and FIFA can be certain Australia will fully deliver on its responsibilities and obligations as a host nation. The expansion of our excellent sports infrastructure will leave a long and lasting benefit to football in Australia and the region.” The Honourable Kevin Rudd MP Prime Minister of Australia “A quarter of Australians were born overseas, and three million Australians speak a language other than English at home. Every nation represented at a FIFA World Cup™ in Australia will have its own base of support and be able to call Australia a “home away from home”. As a member of the Asian Football Confederation, and a former member of the Oceania Football Confederation, Australia can be a bridge between these regions and an integral player in the development of football in the Asia-Pacific. As hosts, we would consider it our obligation and our proud duty, in partnership with FIFA, to find ways to use the world’s greatest event to bring help where it is needed most. Football is a powerful vehicle for sustainable social cohesion, inclusion and equity.” Frank Lowy AC Chairman Football Federation Australia...

THE IMPACT OF ENERGY EFFICIENCY STANDARDS ON STANDBY POWER IN CONSUMER ELECTRONICS DESIGN A Lattice Semiconductor White Paper May 2010 Lattice Semiconductor 5555 Northeast Moore Ct. Hillsboro, Oregon 97124 USA Telephone: (503) 268-8000 www.latticesemi.com 1 The Impact of Energy Efficiency Standards on Standby Power in Consumer Electronics Design A Lattice Semiconductor White Paper Regulatory Measures to Reduce Standby Power Squeezing every last microwatt from a system is a common objective for engineers who are designing battery operated equipment. And as more strict government regulations regarding power consumption appear, even traditional home and office appliances like LCD TVs, set top boxes (STBs) and multifunction printers (MFPs) are being scrutinized for ways to save power. To help ensure products are in compliance with the latest EnergyStar and European Commission Code of Conduct regulations, designers are seeking innovative ways to provide low-power modes of operation in a variety of product lines. This white paper examines design methods and practical advice for saving power using programmable logic devices (PLDs). The 1-Watt Plan is an energy saving proposal by the International Energy Agency (www.iea.org) to reduce standby power use in all appliances to just one watt. Standby power, also called vampire or phantom power, refers to the electricity consumed by many appliances when they are switched off or in standby mode. The typical power loss per appliance is low (from 1 to 25 W), but when multiplied by the billions of appliances in residential and commercial use, standby losses represent a significant fraction of total world electricity use. Research indicates that standby power accounts for as much as 7-13% of household power consumption. While the definition of standby power use depends on the product being analyzed, standby power includes at a minimum the power used while the product is performing no function. PLDs are increasingly being applied to maximize the amount of circuitry that can be unpowered or placed in a standby/sleep mode when the system is idle. Since modern programmable logic devices (PLDs) have very low static current requirements, often in the microampere range, they are ideal as system event...
How to protect yourself when filing taxes online More than 27 million taxpayers already have filed their taxes for 2013 from home computers, a process known as e-filing. As of this week, that's up 6 percent from 2012. But the convenience of electronic filing also allows cybercriminals to file fraudulent tax returns—undetected—to the tune of $3.6 billion for tax year 2011, according to the most recent review by the Treasury Inspector General for Tax Administration.
Rising energy costs are generating new interest in thermal energy based refrigeration systems. These can compete with electrical energy based refrigeration systems if the source of heat energy is waste heat or solar energy. Chillers for industrial use based on absorption refrigeration are commercialized now. In India M/S Thermax manufactures and markets lithium bromide/ water system, based absorption refrigeration machines for industrial and institutional use. These systems are relevant to India because: 1. Ambient temperatures are high through out the year in most parts of the country. Higher ambient temperatures mean more energy is consumed in refrigeration 2. Solar insolation is high in most parts of the country. This implies that we have more energy at our disposal. 3. There is huge potential demand for refrigeration in rural areas, which are best suited for solar energy based refrigeration systems Proposal: Solar energy based refrigeration is an idea whose time has come. The economics are moving into positive zone. Companies who get into this line can expect to reap the benefits in next five years time. Product mix:
Buildings, structures or parts thereof required by this code to have a smoke control system or systems, or a stair pressurization system shall have such systems designed in accordance with the applicable requirements of Section 909 and the generally accepted and well-established principles of engineering relevant to the design. The construction documents shall include sufficient information and detail to adequately describe the elements of the design necessary for the proper implementation of the smoke control systems. These documents shall be accompanied by sufficient information and analysis to demonstrate compliance with these provisions. 1020.1.7 Smokeproof enclosures. In buildings required to comply with Section 403 or 405, each of the exits of a building that serves stories where the floor surface is located more than 75 feet (22 860 mm) above the lowest level of fire department vehicle access or more than 30 feet (9144 mm) below the level of exit discharge serving such floor levels shall be constructed as a smokeproof enclosure or pressurized stairway in accordance with Section 909.20. In buildings required to comply with Section 403, each of the exits of a building that serves stories where the floor surface is located more than 75 feet (22 860 mm) above the lowest level of fire department vehicle access shall be a smokeproof enclosure and pressurized stairway in accordance with Section 909.20. Reason: This proposal would require Stair pressurization for all high rise buildings with required interior stairwells serving floors over 75 ft. Smoke control systems have been required in nearly two thirds of the United States for over a decade.
Construction companies offer free written quotations after visiting the premises and reviewing their scope of work. If the client is happy with the proposal, the written quotation is then converted into a contract with the scope of work defined with more clarity.
