Charging System Tests. Before we start, there are two conventions to observe.

Charging System Tests

First, VW wiring systems are negative ground which means that the negative post of the battery is connected to the vehicle body. This may seem natural but positive ground systems exists (like vintage British made Jaguars) which can be confusing to people who have worked on the opposite system. Second, when talking about current, in the automotive field we more often mean conventional current which states that current flows from positive to negative.

In reality, electrons (which are the charge carriers) flow from negative to positive but the conventional system is illustrated in more texts (a hold over from the early days of science).

Wood block pavement is thought to have been used first in 14th-century Russia, however it enjoyed something of a revival in the 1820s and 1830s as cities in Europe and America sought alternatives to the rough, uneven cobblestone that served as the most common form of pavement.

The immediate advantage of wood over cobblestone was that the resulting street surface was smooth when properly constructed, and much quieter. The disadvantages emerged over time. The wood did not wear as hard as stone, and wheel ruts soon formed. The smooth surface was slick when wet. The wood eventually began to rot, sometimes releasing an objectionable odor.

Rattan bone implants set for human trials - SciDev.Net South Asia

India and Sri Lanka — could be the source for bone implants by 2019. Italian firm GreenBone announced last month that trials on sheep prove that the technology works. It found that rattan can be used to build a scaffold to support damaged bones because rattan has the same strength, flexibility and porosity as bones. The chemical process that turns rattan into a bone-like material was developed by a team at the Institute of Science and Technology for Ceramics (Istec) of the Italian National Research Council. Wood-Based Bone Implants Developed In Italy. A group of Italian researchers say they have developed a new procedure that turns wood into artificial bones.

Wood-Based Bone Implants Developed In Italy

The procedure offers hope of a bone replacement material that lasts a lifetime. The findings were presented in the Royal Society of Chemistry Journal. Italian scientists at the Institute of Science and Technology of Ceramic Materials in Italy are currently developing wood-based bone implants for animals and humans that may assist neighboring bones to heal quicker and with more support than the artificial ones available today.

That’s because a North Atlantic weather anomaly briefly made temperatures at the North Pole comparable to those felt the same day in Vancouver, B.C. Meteorologists at Environment Canada confirmed Dec. 30 that an ocean buoy near the North Pole registered a temperature of only 0 C. “We had a buoy report up near the [North] pole showing about zero degrees just north and west of the pole this morning,” said Environment Canada meteorologist Kirk Torneby.

VIDEO: See Hail in 3D! 12 Incredible Artificial and Man-Made Beaches (PHOTOS) - Ask people what a perfect summer destination would be, and many would say a tropical island with pristine, white-sand beaches and crystal-clear waters.

But what do you do when you're stuck in a landlocked city or urban locale with no nearby natural beaches? Many cities are home to amazing artificial beaches (or surf-friendly "lagoons") which can transport sun-seekers to a tropical, picture-postcard paradise—and they can seem as good as the real thing. DNA sequencing suggests why octopuses are so smart. One of the weirder facts about the animal kingdom is that octopuses are actually quite smart.

Octopuses exhibit all kinds of impressive behavior when tested. They can solve fairly complex spatial problems and remember patterns for later. They can learn and work toward a goal over time. They even engage in elaborate hunting behavior to trap or lure prey. Plasma Active. The Definition of Pre-ordering Video Games (OC) Nobody’s Going Anywhere – Trapped in La Paz.
