De Wet van Moore – dat de rekenkracht van computers elke anderhalf tot twee jaar verdubbelt – is een van de grote cliché’s van onze moderne technologische samenleving. Maar volgens The Futurist is er een opvolger: de Wet van Wright. Die is toepasbaar op veel meer dan transistoren alleen, maar op 62 technologische sectoren. De wet stelt bovendien dat de exponentiële groei het gevolg is van onze gezamenlijke inspanning – en dus allesbehalve een onontkoombaar gegeven is. Het werk van Nikola Tesla vormde de basis voor draadloze communicatie, dat wisten we al. Stel je een psycholoog voor die vooral bekend is van zijn zoektocht naar het menselijk zelfbewustzijn. Hoe krijg je zware metalen uit de grond? En de fraude van Diederik Stapel, die blijft maar groeien in omvang. Stel: je bent een universiteit en je wilt iemand aannemen. Het regent vaker op vochtige dan droge gebieden. Moore's Law wordt Wright's Law Moore's Law wordt Wright's Law
Door: Jacqueline Quarles van Ufford, 25 april 2015 ‘We halen groengas uit shit, daar komt het in het kort op neer,’ aldus ondernemer en uitvinder Kirsten Zagt. En dan niet uit koeienmest maar uit rioolslib en groente- en fruitafval. Deze aanpak komt bovendrijven uit vele experimenten die onderdeel uitmaakten van het Nederlandse innovatieplatform. Wanneer alle rioolslib volgens de methode van Kirsten wordt vergist, levert dit via het aardgasnet voldoende groengas op voor alle huishoudens in Nederland. Inmiddels hebben de Gasunie, GasTerra en Bareau, het ingenieursbureau van Kirsten Zagt, de handen ineen geslagen. ‘Waterzuiveringstechnieken bij de Waterschappen zijn ouderwets en innovaties komen vaak niet verder dan plak en knipwerk’. Rendement van 80% ‘Nu kopen boeren mais in om de mestvergister aan te vullen en het rendement van biogas uit koeienmest te verhogen,’ aldus Kirsten.

Peter: So Sarah, tell me, you're teaching right now, could you give me your opinion on computer use in the classroom, like using it in your classes, what do you think about that? Sarah: I think it's good when there's certain activities that are related to using computers. But when you're trying to do an activity that's not on a computer in a classroom that has computers, it's very difficult to get your students' attention because they're often distracted by doing something else on the internet, they shouldn't be doing. Peter: Oh, I totally agree, I often have that problem, it feels like I'm speaking to a crowd of ghosts. I have no idea that they're talking to me or looking at me or doing anything that they should be doing, so it's really hard. Sarah: Yeah. Peter: Ah, that's a frustrating topic. Sarah: Oh, that's good, yeah. Peter: Yeah. Sarah: Yeah, some of my students use it for ... they have a dictionary on there that they use. Sarah: Yeah. Peter: Yeah, I probably would agree with that.

NDT or nondestructive testing is safe and also cost-effective. Due to these reasons they are being used by different industries in a rapid manner. Particularly, manufacturing industries are actually taking it up on themselves to use NDT technology in Malaysia and other countries. More about Liquid Testing Liquid Penetrant Testing is also referred to as Dye Penetrant Testing or Penetrant Inspection method. Although it is a widely used nondestructive testing technique, it is still considered to be the least technologically sound testing method compared to others like ultrasonic testing and radiography. The Process of Liquid Penetrant Testing The process of LT continues in the following manner: The material to be tested needs to be cleaned using a spray cleaner that is easily wiped off with a cloth. LT of NDT Technology in Malaysia depends on only visual inspection thus making it a little weaker method than others.

Nondestructive testing or NDT is a group of analysis methods that is used to assess the properties of a material or component without damaging it. NDT is primarily used in the field of science and technology. NDT has proved to be a highly valuable technique, saving both money and time as it does not alter or damage the material after inspection and evaluation. Malaysia has also built itself an export niche in South-East Asia, which offers nondestructive testing services in the neighboring countries. Nondestructive testing methods are applicable in varied settings that spread across a wide spectrum of industrial activity. The prominent NDT technique that is most vividly used in Malaysia is radiographic testing. Like this: Like Loading...
