When computer and communications technologies are combined, the result is information technology. Computer Information technology has revolutionized the world making tasks simpler and convenient.
IT industry is booming world wide to its full. In India, IT companies have been spreading its tentacles to various other cities like Pune, Bangalore, and Hyderabad after establishing its foot in Delhi and Mumbai. Information technology services include data management, networking, designing, development and also the management and administration of entire systems.
The internet communications has brought the world closer. Anybody from any corner of the world can communicate through mails instantaneously by availing internet facility. Not only all the leading companies of today but also the small and medium scale industries want to have their websites so as to be visible online. This makes them visible globally anywhere at anytime, serving as a marketing tool, thereby generating revenue. IT has also helped in solving the pressing problem of unemployment by providing employment to the youth. There are lots of leading companies which offer services in the area of computer information and technology.
The SentrySafe G1459E 14-Gun Electronic Lock Safe is a very secured safe that’s capable of safe keeping 14 guns. The product has advanced safety measures as we all put important and valuable things inside a safe. To begin with, it has a strong steel door that’s completely pry-tolerant and carries hidden hinges. This ensures complete protection against any form of theft. Aside from the drill resistant steel plate, it also has three steel live locking bolts and 3 dead bolts. Furthermore, it also comes with a LED lock for access. With all these security measures, this model meets the firearm security device requirements of the California Department of Justice.
The inside part of the G1459E is carpeted so as it could give a secure and soft rest to its contents. Additionally, the product would seem to be more high-end and elegant because of the vibrant chrome and satin color combination. Users never whine about the space too. You can organize and stack neatly the accessories and ammunitions you place in the safe as it has fixed shelves. SentrySafe G1459E 14-Gun Electronic Lock Safe interior dimensions are 58.8″ H by 20.8″ W by 12.9″ D. The battery power weighs 182 pounds.
Touch a doorknob, person or pet after rubbing your feet over a carpet, and ZAP, you feel a static electricity charge. Static occurs when electric charges accumulate on an object’s surface. Electrons are exchanged and one object becomes electrically positive and the other electrically negative. Static is usually created when two materials rub together or move apart. Touching another object with an opposite charge, or a ground (neutral charge), makes electrons flow and you feel the little zap. Static shock takes place more often in winter when the air is cold and dry.
The amount of voltage involved in static electricity, is usually in the 10,000-to-12 .000-Volt range. Static voltage is not life threatening because the amperage is minuscule. It is amps, not volts, which is dangerous. Static shock must be 3500-4000 volts before you can feel it. But for electronics, it is quite possible that you never have a sense of static, and still zap the circuitry in electronics. That is because the integrated circuits may be damaged or destroyed by static voltages as low as 400 volts. Low-voltage static charges can cause latent damage, destroying a few gates of the millions in a typical integrated circuit. This loss can be nearly impossible to diagnose and probably won’t cause problems for a long time.
Humidifiers increase the humidity level in your home, thus reducing random static shock and static cling. Water particles in moist air break up static charges faster. Keeping the humidity in your home between 30-50% also limits electric shock around computers and other electronics, which can cause serious damage. A static charge can be very destructive for the sensitive electronics inside a PC and other electronics. Problems increase when you open your computer case to add RAM, upgrade your CPU or hard drive, or plug in a new sound or graphics card.
Are you one of those teachers overwhelmed by the prospect of “integrating technology” into your classroom? Do you secretly laugh when you hear all of this talk about technology and how it is “so important”?
“Get real,” you say to yourself. You may teach in a school that allows your class access to the computer lab only once every three weeks for 30 minutes at a time. You may have only one or even zero computers in your classroom. You may have little or no experience at “surfing on the net.” You are frustrated with all of the new adoptions and are skeptical at any suggestion of “learning something new.” Your “plate is full” and you wonder when the “pendulum of education” will swing back the other direction and allow you to do that which you do best . . . educate. You find yourself thinking: “The students already know how to work on the computer; they will learn it later or from somewhere else; I need to focus on reading, writing, and math.” Does this sound familiar?
Actually these are all comments teachers have made in many of the University of California classes I have taught on integrating technology in the classroom. I am always amazed at how little most teachers really know about integrating technology in their classrooms, even if they are technically literate. Most students, if not all, take the class to meet the requirement for their professional credential. These are the common questions they have when they start class:
The plethora of music newbies in the music industry is mind boggling as these hopefuls aspire to be famous with their musical abilities and vocal talents. It is ambition of every aspiring musical star to make it to the popular music charts where thousands and perhaps even millions purchase their records.
Climbing the ladder
Musical hopefuls who aspire to climb the music chart ladder must be talented and determined in their quest. They would need perseverance and patience to walk the long journey due to the intense competition in the music industry. Their vocal talent must be impressive to a wide audience; their stage performance must be captivating; their musical abilities should be obvious. These and more characteristics help push a musical talent forward. Today’s musical superstars started out as unsigned artistes yesterday; yet through perseverance, they make their way through unsigned music charts first before switching lanes to the top music charts of the music industry. Such a move takes time, talent and persistency. Making the top charts in the music industry is no easy feat which has taken down many ambitious musical talents.
