Composica - E-Learning Authoring Tools Concrete Leveling & Lifting | National PolyLevel® Contractor Network Home | Buzzy® Helps Running Tracks & Playgrounds Built on Chinese School Rooftops - chinaSMACK From QQ: Just as the new school year has started, news of a track field built on top of a primary school’s roof in Tiantai County in Zhejiang province attracted a lot of attention. Many people questioned the safety of a rooftop track field. Some people are concerned the railings are not strong enough while others fear that a thousand students on the rooftop can cause the building to collapse. On 2014 September 1, Zhejiang Tiantai Country Cicheng No. 2 Elementary School’s rooftop oval athletic track officially went into use, with students running and playing on the circular track for the first time. The “Guidelines for Ordinary Primary and Middle Schools” across China all set the amount of area dedicated to student activities.

MarketingProfs University - Online Marketing Training from Industry Experts Amazon Go grocery store of the future: PHOTOS, VIDEO - INSIDER Amazon DisclaimerGet real-time AMZN charts here » Amazon plans to break into physical retail in a new way. The online retail giant revealed a concept for a physical store in a video published Monday. The store, called Amazon Go, doesn't work like a typical Walmart or supermarket — instead, it's designed so that shoppers will use an app, also called Amazon Go, to automatically add the products they plan to buy to a digital shopping cart; they can then walk out of the building without waiting in a checkout line. The idea is that Amazon's machine-learning technology can automatically identify when a product is added to your cart, so you don't have to do it yourself. The stores will sell ready-made food, staples like bread and milk, and other grocery products. Amazon internal plans show it could build 2,000 grocery stores across the US in the next decade, Business Insider previously reported. The first Amazon Go store is scheduled to open to the public in Seattle early next year.
