State-Of-The-Art Design And Technology Can Meet Both Energy And Comfort Demands

The CFC phaseout has forced facility executives to take a hard look at their HVAC systems. At the same time, current technology offers significant opportunities for energy savings from the heating and cooling system, typically the second-largest energy user in commercial facilities. On top of all that, the definition of comfort has evolved rapidly over the past decade.
At one time, HVAC systems satisfied the comfort issue by simply making sure the work area was warm or cool enough for most occupants. Now, comfort is being refined to include indoor air quality and outside air exchange.
All in all, it’s a tall order: The HVAC system is expected to achieve comfortable conditions for the individual and the masses in the office without harming the delicate global atmosphere. A good example is the CFC phaseout.
Facility executives have three choices: contain CFCs in existing chillers, convert existing units to alternative refrigerants or replace existing machines. Installing new high-efficiency equipment can result in significant energy savings.
Modern HVAC equipment offers improved efficiencies, which are being achieved with better motor performance and better temperature splits in the refrigerant tubes. Today’s HVAC systems also offer better part-load efficiencies than older models. Multi-stack units and horizontal screws run more efficiently at part-load levels than earlier models. The economizer bundles are better than they used to be, so the systems run more efficiently.
The recent improvements in chiller efficiencies are the result of refinements in many small places. Manufacturers have done it by better designed compressors, by improving heat transfers. Every component has been reengineered.
New materials, notably plastics, offer major potential for increased HVAC advances that end up benefiting building owners and managers. New materials make units more efficient, easier to install and more corrosion resistant. HVAC systems are becoming more component oriented so they can be put in after the building is built.
Resolving IAQ via HVAC
One of the biggest challenges facing facility managers today is how to meet ASHRAE’s current standard for outside air exchange. Variable air volume systems and normal applications need to be reexamined to meet ASHRAE fresh air standard.
To maintain energy efficiency and meet the new standard, multi-zone air-handling systems may need some overhauls. The normal unit has two decks — one for warm air and one for cool. Provided air is mostly being recirculated, the two decks work effectively.
With the larger temperature differences involved with increased outside air, a neutral zone also may be needed. In a triple-deck system, the outside air is brought by the heat exchanger to that neutral point, before entering the air stream. The result is returned efficiency to the HVAC system in its heating and cooling modes.
Another promising solution is the use of dessicants to pre-condition air without mechanical cooling.
For buildings undergoing major retrofits, the building’s air should be tested before renovations begin. Establish the levels of existing contaminants, if any, so that you have a point of reference. After renovations, the air quality should be retested. Periodically, additional IAQ tests should be conducted.
What should building owners do when indoor air actually is better than outside air, as often is the case in buildings located adjacent to major airports? Filtration for gaseous contaminants can play a major role in cleaning the building’s air. The health care industry already is aware of the importance of air filtration in controlling the spread of airborne pathogens. But other building owners are just beginning to recognize the importance of proper filtration systems.
Custom comfort
Many advances have been made in HVAC control technology during the past decade. One of the most recent is the ability to control air flow, temperature and even air quality at individual workstations. Because of metabolism and dress in the office, women often complain that they are too cold, while men are too hot.
Advances in DDCs and control systems give us tools to get better air as well as energy conservation from HVAC systems. Everything now is automatic. We can set certain parameters for temperature and humidity with the outside air economizer.
And we can do so much more with the system to protect the health of the people inside the building. For example, if there is a fire and the smoke-detection system is activated, the HVAC controls can stop the air-handling system and start exhausting smoke from the space while alerting local fire and alarm departments.
Electronics in HVAC systems are becoming more integrated with each other: The air-handling unit knows how much is needed from it, and the chiller knows what each air handler is doing and can adjust itself accordingly.
Further refinements in HVAC system controls are on the near horizon. For example, comfort control that relies on more than the temperature to measure a space’s overall comfort currently is being investigated by researchers, …

HR Technology: Adapt Or Perish?

Is HR becoming the IT of the 21st Century?
In business, change is unceasing. A sense of change is especially true in the field of modern human resources.
As the HR profession changes, becoming high-tech and advanced, professionals must keep up by becoming technologically savvy-perhaps even with a hint of IT expertise.
Analytical skills and software competence are becoming essential proficiencies. Talent acquirement, recruiting, onboarding and development are increasingly moving online, evidenced by the sharp increase of cloud-based software, and apps for mobile devices.
These new tools are rapidly taking the lead in HR services- companies like Jobvite, Ovation Technologies and HR Concepts. They are affordable, easy to implement, and require a level of computer literacy.
In response, the successful HR professional cannot go by human management-or soft skills-alone. The new HR specialist needs to be able to incorporate the new tools of the trade, such as job posting software, applicant tracking, software-as-a-service and hiring management systems.
New advances assure that companies that rely solely on the old ways of recruiting, training, hiring and onboarding will be left in the dust-as forward-thinking companies take control. These new tools will ensure even the smallest of businesses can compete with the big players for all the best qualified talent.
It has become a matter of change, or perish. Perhaps not so dramatic, but the key point is the same.
The future of HR can look forward to the ability to provide an integrated workforce experience-combining information, data metrics, collaboration and execution into a personalized employee experience. This individualized relationship with employees-especially during onboarding-will secure the goodwill of the corporate culture by starting the new hire on a positive note.
As opposed to travelling to an employer when applying for a job, applicants have the ability to begin the process online. This one revolution exponentially expands the pool of potential candidates. No more physically arriving at a location just to fill out an onsite application.
The old ways were time-consuming, especially for hiring managers responsible for several units, chains restaurants or convenience stores. Often they would spend days traveling to locations, just to pick up applications.
By employing Web-based talent management solutions, hiring kiosks and company employment pages, the process of collecting resumes, generating assessments and evaluating skills needed for the job become productive and streamlined. In addition, candidates appreciate the opportunity to apply comfortably at home, resulting in a larger, higher-quality set of possible applicants.
According to Cisco’s “Visual Networking Index: Global Mobile Data Traffic Forecast Update,” mobile data traffic more than doubled in 2011; the latest in a four year course of exponential growth. Cisco estimated that by 2016, the total number of mobile devices per capita will reach 1.4 -more than 10 billion units. Ironically, the number of mobile devices will exceed the global population, estimated to reach 7.3 billion.
It is clear that with mobile HR management technology, spreadsheets, ledgers, burdensome reporting methods-even pen and paper-will become curious anachronisms. Routine tasks and reports can be completed from anywhere. Scheduling, vacation and time-off requests are approved-or denied-within moments.
This requires managers and human resources staff to have more than traditional soft skills-like personal interactions and negotiations. They have to have the ability to analyze larger numbers of data-more than was even possible in the past-to arrive at better, more insightful, decisions about legal issues and workplace problems.
As technologies like social media surface in the workplace, new challenges pop up; issues like compliance, employee ethics, behavior and more. This does not mean the old norms of workplace performance will go by the wayside; it simply means that the breadth of topics falling under the umbrella of HR substantially expands.
One thing may be true from all this; when viewing the big picture, Human Resources has become the potential to be the new IT of the 21st Century.
This trend also requires the most fundamental choice for HR professionals-adapt, or perish!…

History of Educational Technology

There is no written evidence which can tell us exactly who has coined the phrase educational technology. Different educationists, scientists and philosophers at different time intervals have put forwarded different definitions of Educational Technology. Educational technology is a multifaceted and integrated process involving people, procedure, ideas, devices, and organization, where technology from different fields of science is borrowed as per the need and requirement of education for implementing, evaluating, and managing solutions to those problems involved in all aspects of human learning.
Educational technology, broadly speaking, has passed through five stages.
The first stage of educational technology is coupled with the use of aids like charts, maps, symbols, models, specimens and concrete materials. The term educational technology was used as synonyms to audio-visual aids.
The second stage of educational technology is associated with the ‘electronic revolution’ with the introduction and establishment of sophisticated hardware and software. Use of various audio-visual aids like projector, magic lanterns, tape-recorder, radio and television brought a revolutionary change in the educational scenario. Accordingly, educational technology concept was taken in terms of these sophisticated instruments and equipments for effective presentation of instructional materials.
The third stage of educational technology is linked with the development of mass media which in turn led to ‘communication revolution’ for instructional purposes. Computer-assisted Instruction (CAI) used for education since 1950s also became popular during this era.
The fourth stage of educational technology is discernible by the individualized process of instruction. The invention of programmed learning and programmed instruction provided a new dimension to educational technology. A system of self-learning based on self-instructional materials and teaching machines emerged.
The latest concept of educational technology is influenced by the concept of system engineering or system approach which focuses on language laboratories, teaching machines, programmed instruction, multimedia technologies and the use of the computer in instruction. According to it, educational technology is a systematic way of designing, carrying out and evaluating the total process of teaching and learning in terms of specific objectives based on research.
Educational technology during the Stone Age, the Bronze Age, and the Iron Age
Educational technology, despite the uncertainty of the origin of the term, can be traced back to the time of the three-age system periodization of human prehistory; namely the Stone Age, the Bronze Age, and the Iron Age.
Duringthe Stone Age, ignition of fire by rubbing stones, manufacture of various handmade weapon and utensils from stones and clothing practice were some of the simple technological developments of utmost importance. A fraction of Stone Age people developed ocean-worthy outrigger canoe ship technology to migrate from one place to another across the Ocean, by which they developed their first informal education of knowledge of the ocean currents, weather conditions, sailing practice, astronavigation, and star maps. During the later Stone Age period (Neolithic period),for agricultural practice, polished stone tools were made from a variety of hard rocks largely by digging underground tunnels, which can be considered as the first steps in mining technology. The polished axes were so effective that even after appearance of bronze and iron; people used it for clearing forest and the establishment of crop farming.
Although Stone Age cultures left no written records, but archaeological evidences proved their shift from nomadic life to agricultural settlement. Ancient tools conserved in different museums, cave paintings like Altamira Cave in Spain, and other prehistoric art, such as the Venus of Willendorf, Mother Goddess from Laussel, France etc. are some of the evidences in favour of their cultures.
Neolithic Revolution of Stone Age resulted into the appearance of Bronze Age with development of agriculture, animal domestication, and the adoption of permanent settlements. For these practices Bronze Age people further developed metal smelting, with copper and later bronze, an alloy of tin and copper, being the materials of their choice.
The Iron Age people replaced bronze and developed the knowledge of iron smelting technology to lower the cost of living since iron utensils were stronger and cheaper than bronze equivalents. In many Eurasian cultures, the Iron Age was the last period before the development of written scripts.
Educational technology during the period of Ancient civilizations
According to Paul Saettler, 2004, Educational technology can be traced back to the time when tribal priests systematized bodies of knowledge and ancient cultures invented pictographs or sign writing to record and transmit information. In every stage of human civilization, one can find an instructional technique or set of procedures intended to implement a particular culture which were also supported by number of investigations and evidences. The more advanced the culture, the more complex became the technology of instruction designed to reflect particular ways of individual and social behaviour intended to run an educated society. Over centuries, each significant shift in educational values, goals or objectives led to diverse technologies of instruction.
The greatest advances …

Save With Green Technology

The term green technology may conjure images of scientists designing futuristic solar or wind energy equipment. But it is more than that.

Technology derives from the Greek word technologia, meaning the systematic treatment of an art. There are many actions you can systematically take each day which may seem low-tech as compared to a hybrid car, but which will save you time and money while improving the health of the world in which we all live.

In the process, you may create a green innovation to the job you now perform, or build a new opportunity for yourself in this rapidly growing economic sector.

What Is It?

According to Green Technology, a non-profit initiative designed to promote sustainability through private sector-public sector cooperation, the primary goals of green technology are:

Sustainability: providing for our needs without depleting or harming natural resources or impairing our children’s ability to provide for themselves

Renewable Design: engineering products so they can eventually be reclaimed for later use instead of being thrown out-called “cradle to cradle” design

Source Reduction: changing patterns of production and consumption to reduce waste

Innovation: finding alternatives to unhealthful technologies such as fossil fuel or petrochemicals

Viability: capitalizing on products and activities that benefit health and the environment so they are more quickly adopted, create jobs, and products pricing drops due to greater supply.

How Can You Play A Role?

Adopt Green Habits. From the list of green living ideas at our personal website below, pick three that you can, and more importantly that you will adopt immediately as a new routine in your life. Remember that technology requires a systematic approach. Stick with whatever you choose, and add others as you are able.

Make a Difference at Work. This can include starting or improving a recycling program, helping to facilitate more energy efficient building features or energy use, transitioning to purchasing practices supporting environmentally sound products or allowing flexible work-at-home scheduling to reduce building space needs and travel costs.

Become an Expert. Educate yourself through web resources, books and seminars or classes. Find out what others in your field of interest are doing to innovate toward green practices and mimic them. Make a proposal to your boss, your school district, residential community or other body that sets forth a goal and how you would oversee its attainment. After one project, you suddenly have a new resume entry or side business.

Fill a Need While Making Money. Often we ask ourselves why someone doesn’t provide a needed service. With the help of Home Based Business Hub your ideas become strategies and an action plan for operating a green business from home.

Don’t Green Technologies Cost More?

The answer to this depends on how one looks at “cost.” At the dealership, a hybrid Toyota Prius will cost more than a comparably equipped gasoline car. Over its lifetime, however, you will almost certainly recoup the added expense through better fuel efficiency and lower repair rates due to fewer moving parts.

Also consider the hidden environmental cost of the higher polluting gasoline car. Part of our taxes goes to government efforts to clean the air, so it follows that we will pay less if we pollute less.

On the consumer products side, a concentrated chemical household cleaner will likely be a bit cheaper per ounce than a green version. This has to do with economies of scale and who pays for hidden costs.

Until green cleaners get enough viability, or market share, to allow them to be truly mass produced, the mass produced chemical versions will remain cheaper. If you buy the green version, you are inching that company toward being able to offer a lower price to improve its competitive edge.

The hidden cost factor is largely environmental protection costs which the green company chooses to pay, but the chemical company does not yet have to pay.

An example is production waste. A chemical cleaner company can dispose of waste up to the legally allowable air, water or solid waste limits without cost. The green company typically uses green technology to pollute much less, but at a cost which is passed in part to the consumer.…

Radio Systems – Technology for Non-Stop Communication

A good radio system is a perfect choice for a reliable communication system. This wise investment caters for personal and commercial usage. The device is easy to operate and ensures greater safety even in dangerous environment. Two way radio systems can be conveniently used for various purposes such as military, outdoor recreation, public safety, businesses and personal security. Commercial two way radios are best alternatives to stay connected during emergencies or natural disasters. They can work on batteries during power crisis for long hours.
It is important to choose the correct type of radios, which specifically fits with the operating environment. Consider the frequency to ensure reliability and free communication. You can select from two modes such as very high frequency (VHF) or ultra-high frequency (UHF) with 136 Mhz to 174 Mhz and 450 Mhz to 470 Mhz range respectively.
VHF frequency is best suited to communicate on open land or hilly areas. On the other hand, UHF offers good range in and out of concrete or steel structures located in the crowded city areas. You can also choose radio systems with or without license depending on your budget, safety and functional background. Licensed version is highly favored for business purposes to ensure greater security and wider coverage with less interference. Whereas for license free system, you don’t need a network, call fees, or contract. It covers a range up to 3kms and supports entry level communication systems at affordable rates.
With technology development, analogue and digital radios have come to the scene. Take the advantage of analogue radios for better communication even though the received signal is noisy or weak. However, digital radios guarantee two way conversations with enhanced speech quality and higher security. These devices also provide multiple channel options to communicate with different departments within one business. Hence, before buying two way radio systems, decide on how many channels you require for managing your business.
Another factor to consider is the working environment – specifically hazardous inflammable surroundings or waterlogged areas. Thus take precautions to select the suitable two way radios for providing an uninterrupted communication. Other factors worth recognition are Lone Worker, GPS, Man Down and Voice Activation. Do assure the quality and working of radio systems with the free on-site testing and demonstrations, before spending for the device.
Sometimes, the radio systems create serious problem of poor coverage due to large distance difference or blockades. PMR radio is a solution for such situation to advance the range of a radio system. It is programmed to pass on one particular frequency and simultaneously take on another. As two way radio systems support many applications, you need to pick the perfect equipment that suits your budget and requirement after seeking professional guidance.…
