I do not know why our country is still attached to coal, even though the production of electricity is very harmful to both people and the environment. If we do not want to put on nuclear energy like other European ones, then we should take an example from Denmark, which increasingly meets its energy needs with the help of wind.
Progressive environmental pollution makes air quality worse, which in turn affects our health, causing respiratory illness and leading to death. We should step up efforts to improve the situation, and the first step in this direction is to dismantle coal-fired power plants and switch to renewable energy.
The example is given to us by Denmark, which according to a recent local report by Energinet, last year satisfied 42% of the country’s energy needs. In the previous year it was 39%, which shows that the government is striving to completely eliminate traditional electronics.
Interestingly, an experiment was recently conducted that shut down the largest national power plants all day to show that the country could only be powered by windmills. The experiment has been a success, although it is too early to be fully renewable.
Denmark has been implementing this process since 2005, when it produced 19 percent of the electricity it needed. By 2020, it wants to generate as much as 50 per cent of the electricity needed, but by 2050 it plans to fully meet its energy needs.…
Get a license fee for patents. But ridiculously low. Google’s Motorola has demanded a license fee from Microsoft for its patents. The court admitted it was right, but disagreed with their valuation. Microsoft will pay $ 3.82 billion a year less than the smartphone maker demanded.
Motorola accused Microsoft of illegally using patents related to 802.11 and H.264. These are market standards, so the patents related to them are part of the FRAND agreement. This means that they should be licensed on “fair, reasonable and non-discriminatory basis”. And that was precisely the cause of Motorola’s failure.
Microsoft has expressed a desire to pay the license fee, but disagreed with patent pricing. Motorola claimed 2.25 percent of the value of every product sold using its intellectual property. These products include, but are not limited to, any Windows 7 computer or any Xbox 360 console. That would mean that Microsoft would pay, roughly, four billion dollars a year!…
The coldest water for the survivors of a ship or plane crash, which had to be launched. Low temperatures immediately lead to hypothermia and then to human death. Bob Duncan, inventor and pilot of Alaska Airline, has developed a special suit that can save lives.
The cold water man will last only a few minutes, so in the event of a catastrophe, ships are often equipped with survival suits designed for crews who protect them from the cold, allowing them to safely wait for help. Unfortunately, the suits are not perfect and they can survive for only a few hours, so if the help does not arrive at that time, it will not make much sense.
Bob Duncan, an Alaskan Airline pilot who has been involved in inventions for a while, has developed a suit that greatly increases the chance of survival. The invention is called the Stearns Thermashield 24+ Immersion Suit and, as the constructor claims, is able to keep us alive for up to 24 hours.
The key element of his design is a face mask and a system to distribute the warm breath of the wearer throughout the suit, isolating it from the cold at the same time. In short, they survived the heat itself. Naturally, the dress is fully sealed, covered with a reflective coating andequipped with emergency lighting and a transmitter that sends an SOS signal.
Duncan claims that his invention allows him to survive in cold water about 4-5 times longer, compared to traditional survival suits. It is intended primarily for seafarers who need to repair external plating of ships or drilling rigs, so it also does not restrict the movement of the body.…
