SAFER (“Safe And Feasible Exponential Risk”) Diamond® is a novel risk assessment and management tool, with a user-friendly graphical presentation format of data and results.
While incorporating the best features of the familiar Risk Matrix to obtain quantitative risk (R) as product of probability (P) and severity (S) of loss, and ALARP (“As Low As Reasonably Practicable”) triangle as depicted in Fig. 1, it offers many advantages over existing methods.
The technique differs from existing job hazard analysis methods as follows:
(1) It requires input of only minimum and maximum values of probability P of occurrence and ...
Safecity is a platform that crowdsources personal stories of sexual harassment and abuse in public spaces. This data which may be anonymous, gets aggregated as hot spots on a map indicating trends at a local level. The idea is to make this data useful for individuals, local communities and local administration to identify factors that causes behaviour that leads to violence and work on strategies for solutions.
Since our launch on 26 Dec 2012 we have collected over 10,000 stories from over 50 cities in India, Kenya, Cameroon, Nepal, Nigeria and Trinidad & Tobago.
Safecity aims to ...
1.) TITLE - SECOND GENERATION WIRELESS EXPENDABLE BATHYTHERMOGRAPH (WXBT)
(1.1) BACKGROUND - The author of this document has had specific experience designing a part of the existing XBT system while under contract with the National Oceanic & Atmospheric Institute (NOAA). It is this exposure that led to this new approach over the existing oceanic temperature measurement technique.
(1.2) ABSTRACT (PROBLEM STATEMENT) - Current Expendable Bathythermograph technology utilizes ocean-going vessels with personnel to deploy wired temperature probes commonly known as “XBT’s”. These instruments contain spools of copper wire that unravels as the XBT plummets to the ocean floor. These wires are left ...

The manufacture, characterization and modeling of magnetic antidots have been studied because of their potential applications, as they are promising candidates for a new generation of electronic devices such as transistors. In addition, the absence of the superparamagnetic boundary in nanostructured antidots makes them strong candidates for ultra-high-density recording media.
We have Permalloy thin films with quasicrystalline Cairo (Cairo Transformations) patterns. In these systems it is possible to anchor the magnetization in certain individual elements.
We will investigate by magnetic micromagnetic simulations the magnetic properties of an arrangement of antidots ordered according to a tiling of Cairo Tiling and ...
The performance of electric energy systems is based mainly on their powers chains structures. Indeed, the power chain structure influences the consumed energy, the energy losses and the simplicity the control system reducing the faults causes. In this context, we propose a power chain modeling approach based on asymmetrical control. The vehicle power chain is constituted by a synchronous motor with permanent magnet and axial flux and a DC-AC converter constituted by only three power IGBT transistors (Insulated Gate Bipolar Transistor) and power diodes. This choice is used to increase the gain in production cost and power chain performance. ...
Production advances have spurred further investigation into identifying properties of synthetic diamond films in high-purity form. These properties have provided evidence that films of exceptionally high quality can be used as a heat sink, as a sensor material in electro-chemistry, and as a neutron sensor. This discussion focuses on purposing a diamond film production method that may be used as a sensor material. To be utilized as a sensor material competitive with existing neutron detectors, these diamond films must be single crystals that are nearly completely free of lattice defects; possess high electron and hole mobility; demonstrate a high ...
We augment typical, low-cost plastic traps for many insect pests with the necessary optoelectronic sensors to sense the entrance of the trap to detect, time-stamp, GPS tag, and –in relevant cases- identify the species of the incoming insect from their wingbeat. For every important crop pest, there are monitoring protocols to be followed to decide when to initiate a treatment procedure before a serious infestation occurs. Monitoring protocols are mainly based on specifically designed insect traps. Traditional insect monitoring suffers in that the scope of such monitoring: is curtailed by its cost, requires intensive labour, is time consuming, an ...

Keep out of reach of children, almost every cupboard contains something that states this warning on the label. Whether it is for the child's safety of the sanity of the parent; medication, paint, blenders plastic bags or a vast array of other things need to be kept safe from children while still readily accessible to adults.
While a toddler's finger painting on the new Persian rug is, at least in the long run, preferable to salami fingers, both can be prevented by locking the cupboard. Sometimes you forget to lock it and it is frustrating to try find ...
"Ofrige" is a portable cold and hot refrigeration and storage system that keeps food consumed at the work stations, fresh and healthy. Ofrige gives a real alternative to the preservation and manipulation of solid foods and beverages in offices and workplaces, avoiding their deterioration.
"Ofrige" is made up of a refrigerator that has a special grill for the distribution of food and two sides with compartments. It is accessible by means of two doors. Ofrige offers a new solution which adapts the vitroceramic technology to have cells The product uses a rechargeable battery which operates by means of an ...
A non-surgical invasive way for cardiac myocytes experiencing arrhythmia may be achievable with an enhanced magnetic field across the cardiac myocyte depolarization pacemaker action potential electrophysics. The attached charted graph--see mA/mmsquared vs. Magnetic Field Tesla (L)--illustrates the critical current with the enhanced magnetic field @77degK in rare-earth REBCO superconductor. The critical current runs in 5 microns layer of the REBCO, while the substrate lamina can be used at the liquid oxygen temperature 77degK--available at stored oxygen. We think a caudal and anterior assembly of a pulse generator, small external O2 with circulation, and REBCO material plates could be hung, ...
