How To Be More Disciplined And Organized When Working From Home Being a web worker, I firmly believe that working from home is much better than the alternative of sitting in a cube all day at the office. Although it has its share of negatives, I assume the majority would agree. Over the last few years, working from home has really picked up and now you can find people from in all occupations like freelancers, internet marketers, salespeople or people like our very own Jay White who have convinced their employers to let them do their office work from home. However, for anyone who has just taken the plunge to web working from an office job, the initial days could be the toughest. Decide and organize workspaceIt’s important to decide which portion of your house will be called your home office and then organize it. Fix your work hoursThe liberty to not wake up with the alarm at 6AM is really amazing, however, it could make you lazy and slack at work. Educate your family about the change in lifestyleThis is very important for those who don’t live alone.

GigE Silicon Imaging GigE-CameraLink connectivity products deliver unique value to a wide range of vision applications, including industrial inspection and control, medical imaging, intelligent traffic monitoring, enterprise surveillance, digital cinema, and remote healthcare. In all applications, Silicon Imaging GigE-Cameras reduce complexity, lower costs, and improve system efficiencies by allowing camera manufacturers and systems integrators to create long-reach, high-performance IP/Ethernet links between cameras and PCs. Until now, to meet speed, throughput, and processing requirements, most high-performance cameras have been point-to-point connected to local PCs using specialized protocols and interface equipment. These point-to-point links typically extend only a few meters, which means host PCs are essentially tethered to cameras. And, to receive and process images, the PCs must be fitted with costly frame grabber boards. Point-to-point links between one camera and one PC

5 Ways To Hack Your Brain Into Awesomeness Learn More While You Sleep So say you haven't followed that first step up there and choose to continue sleeping like other mere mortals. A very minor change in your schedule can still let you use your sleep patterns to your advantage, by making you smarter. Holy Shit, How Can I Do It? No, we're not talking about those scams where they have you put a tape recorder under your pillow and let it teach you Spanish while you're asleep. Note: "Sleep on it" is simply an expression. They did a study at Harvard that proved this technique works. No, the participants who slept on it and had 24 hours for the information to fester in their brain did the best on the test, while those who only had 20 minutes did the worst. Wasting your time, nerds, go to sleep. How Does It Work? Scientists say the ability your brain has to retain information works in three different ways: acquisition, consolidation and recall. So does this technique work with the "sleep two hours a day" system we mentioned earlier?

Bruce Lee’s Top 7 Fundamentals for Getting Your Life in Shape If you haven’t been living under a rock for the last 30 years I’m pretty sure you know who Bruce Lee was. If you have, then you may be interested to know that Lee was a very famous martial artist and actor who sparked the first big interest of Chinese martial arts in the West in the 60’s and 70’s. But besides being an awesome fighter and iconic figure Lee also had some very useful things to say about life. Here are 7 of my favourite fundamentals from Bruce Lee. 1. “As you think, so shall you become.” Perhaps the most basic statement of how we work. It’s easy to forget about this simple statement in everyday life. 2. “It’s not the daily increase but daily decrease. “If you spend too much time thinking about a thing, you’ll never get it done.” If you want to improve your life then it’s tempting to want to add more. Adding more and more just creates more stress and anxiety. Adding more thoughts and thinking things over for the 111:th time may create a sense of security. Thinking has its place.

Welcome to Stratech Systems Limited : FOD Detection System iFerret™ intelligent Airfield/Runway Surveillance and FOD (Foreign Object & Debris) Detection System Incidents arising from Foreign Objects & Debris (FOD) on runways cost the aviation industry US$4 billion in aircraft repairs and maintenance annually. Flight delays and accident claims add to the cost. FOD includes a wide range of materials, such as a part fallen off from an aircraft, a detached runway light fitting, building materials, rocks and even wildlife. The Air France Concorde crash in July 2000, which claimed 113 lives, reinforces the need for real-time, automated FOD detection. Currently, airports conduct daily manual runway sweeps to remove FOD. iFerret™ is designed to detect and classify foreign objects, as well as pinpoint their location. iFerret™ has won the R&D prize at the Asia Pacific ICT Awards (APICTA) 2006 .

5 Ways To Hack Your Brain Into Awesomeness Much of the brain is still mysterious to modern science, possibly because modern science itself is using brains to analyze it. There are probably secrets the brain simply doesn't want us to know. But by no means should that stop us from tinkering around in there, using somewhat questionable and possibly dangerous techniques to make our brains do what we want. We can't vouch for any of these, either their effectiveness or safety. All we can say is that they sound awesome, since apparently you can make your brain... #5. So you just picked up the night shift at your local McDonald's, you have class every morning at 8am and you have no idea how you're going to make it through the day without looking like a guy straight out of Dawn of the Dead, minus the blood... hopefully. "SLEEEEEEEEEP... uh... What if we told you there was a way to sleep for little more than two hours a day, and still feel more refreshed than taking a 12-hour siesta on a bed made entirely out of baby kitten fur? Holy Shit!

Control Engineering Asia : List of paradoxes This is a list of paradoxes, grouped thematically. The grouping is approximate, as paradoxes may fit into more than one category. Because of varying definitions of the term paradox, some of the following are not considered to be paradoxes by everyone. This list collects only scenarios that have been called a paradox by at least one source and have their own article. Although considered paradoxes, some of these are based on fallacious reasoning, or incomplete/faulty analysis. Logic[edit] Self-reference[edit] These paradoxes have in common a contradiction arising from self-reference. Barber paradox: A barber (who is a man) shaves all and only those men who do not shave themselves. Vagueness[edit] Ship of Theseus (a.k.a. Mathematics[edit] Statistics[edit] Probability[edit] Infinity and infinitesimals[edit] Geometry and topology[edit] The Banach–Tarski paradox: A ball can be decomposed and reassembled into two balls the same size as the original.

Tools Keep Ford at the Forefront of Innovation - Solutions - Nat Author(s):Kurt D. Osborne - Ford Motor Company At the Forefront of Innovation Since 1992, Ford Motor Company has been dedicated to fuel cell system (FCS) R&D. Despite our significant progress, several deficiencies have prevented FCSs from becoming a commercially viable technology that is competitive with conventional internal combustion-based power trains. Our attempt to eliminate these deficiencies began by demonstrating significant improvements in areas such as system lifetime and freeze starting. In conjunction with our groundbreaking FCS design, we developed a new control system using rapid prototyping. We implemented an HIL system comprised of an NI PXI-8186 controller in an NI PXI-1010 combination PXI/SCXI chassis with associated PXI and SCXI I/O cards, including a controller area network (CAN), to verify the control strategy functionality embedded in the CompactRIO controller. Performance When You Need It Automotive power train control demands real-time performance.
