Environmental Science Fair Project

There are increasing numbers of students who are choosing an environmental science fair project for their school assignments. Hardly a day goes by that there is not some sort of news event on the television regarding the problems we are facing with the environment. These students are choosing an environmental science fair project for school because they are interested in studying this area of science. Many of these students are very devoted to finding solutions to the current environmental crises. They have the long term vision that many adults lack by realizing that what we do now will affect the planet in a positive or negative way for years, decades, and/or centuries to come. They are taking this devotion to the cause and choosing an environmental science fair project as their topic of study.

An environmental science fair project can be presented on a wide variety of specific topics. Issues surrounding soil use and preservation are some of the most popular. These issues deal with loss of topsoil, which is where all the plant life is grown. This type of environmental science project can also examine the effects of runoff on the waterways of the world. The silting of rivers is a major concern due to the detrimental effects to plants and animals that rely on oxygenated water for survival. An environmental science fair project may also cover the issues surrounding the use of pesticides and other chemicals on the soil and surrounding wildlife. Students who demonstrate aptitude in these areas will likely continue their passion into their careers as agricultural scientists.

Other students who choose an environmental science fair project could focus on the latest increases in greenhouse gases around the Earth. While the task may sound too monumental for an environmental science fair project, there are ways to scale down the project. These projects are scientifically accurate and if properly implemented and documented can lead to the answers we are in need of to address this issue. Likewise, the study of animals such as frogs can lead to knowledge that can be applied on a larger scale. Frogs are the litmus paper for the health of water, and students can gather information in their local areas to determine the health of ponds and streams.

It seems that most people these days have a friend, relative or neighbor in the Information Technology industry. One could be forgiven for concluding that this popularity is a product of a well known process supplying the Information Technology industry with rejuvenated stock year in and year out. Nothing could be further from the truth, approximately 70,000 searches a month for the keywords Information Technology Career or similar variances on Google alone validate this claim.

Even with a University degree many graduates find themselves lost and confused about their career path. The problem that graduates face is that Information Technology is a broad description encompassing any and all industries involved with the storage, processing or delivery of information. Telecommunications specialists and hardware technicians alike call themselves “IT” professionals despite very different training and skill sets. As do developers, business analysts, help desk consultants, web designers and database administrators just to name a few others.

In an industry where knowledge is rewarded, opportunity awaits savvy students and trainees who focus their training sooner rather than later. Take our two example students whom Ive very imaginatively called Student#1 and Student#2.

Student #1 wasnt sure where his IT education might take him. He is bright and cruised through his course producing the following impressive results.

2007 High School Graduate
2010 Information Technology Degree (6.1 of a maximum 7 GPA)

Good results are great. But can we raise the bar without improving on the GPA?

Student #2 researched the industry very early into his degree; he spoke with appropriate parties including recruitment agencies and other IT professionals. He even volunteered for three weeks of work experience in his field of choice. He continued on a focused career track throughout his time at university and at the end of his degree his final portfolio of achievements looked like this;

2007 High School Certificate
2008 Systems Administrator (3 week work experience) Company XYZ
2009 Microsoft Certified Professional (MCP) Self Study
2009 Professional Membership AITP (Association of Information Technology Professionals)
2010 Information Technology Degree (5.6 of a maximum 7 GPA)
Major Infrastructure Technologies
Major Network Technologies

Student #2 focused his efforts towards a Systems Administrator role three years before he was scheduled to finish his degree. Apart from the additional experience he was able to get a first hand insight into the industry and learned that an MCP certification would be a valuable asset to his job hunting arsenal. Additional research also led him to join a professional association. Even his university degree shows clear intent and when you compare his achievements with Student#1 he looks a much stronger candidate despite a lower University GPA.

This is an example of well planned career development. The Information Technology industry excels in presenting unique opportunities and this is no exception. Forward thinkers and innovators stand up and get noticed Will you cruise through your studies or are you taking the bull by the horns?

Who’s Going To Profit From Nfc And Mobile Payment Technology

By Contador Wanarua
I would like to first inform you that 2011 will be the year when key players start to throw their hat into the digital payment space and Google wallet could indeed be the start of digital money. This technology of mobile payments has excited firms such as Smartphone designers, such as Apple and BlackBerry-makers Research In Motion, but in my opinion it has worried many credit card companies because this could mean end of their business as time goes by. NFC technology was aimed at reducing fraud. Apparently the anti fraud element is that because you do not need to enter your PIN it cannot be seen by other people. They seem to ignore the fact that fraudsters do not need the PIN just your card. But if Google wallet will overcome that then main beneficiaries will consumers both off and online.
Consumers will generally benefit because the technology is aimed at making it easier for you to pay for and save on the goods you want, while giving merchants more ways to offer coupons and loyalty programs to customers, as well as bridging the gap between online and offline commerce. Google emphasized that the service would be open to all businesses and invited other banks, credit card issuers, payment networks, mobile carriers and merchants to work with it. One of the key reasons why this technology will succeed is the security element of the technology that, when the phone is stolen, the credit cards inside could be remotely disabled meaning unlike our credit cards we will be more secure with the technology. Consumers would have the same zero liability for unauthorized transactions made with their phone as they would with their plastic cards.
The cost of installing payment chips has kept carriers from signing on, as has haggling over how the transaction fees should be divided. For now, Google has decided not to take a cut of these fees, which generate billions of dollars for the likes of Visa and American Express. After Thursday suit, I am not sure whether PayPal refused to waive fees, but it could be the reason they failed to beat Google to the chase of this idea. Google will earn money by relying on revenue generated by the increase in traffic to its websites, its new coupon initiative and the sale of more Android phones.
In closing remarks, this technology will help us store your credit cards, offers, loyalty cards and gift cards, but without the bulk. When we tap to pay, our phone will also automatically redeem offers and earn loyalty points for you. I do strongly believe that soon the boarding passes, ID, tickets and keys could be stored in Google Wallet.My top five beneficiaries of the technology are mobile operators, banks, technology companies, consumers and Google.

A greenhouse is basically a structure that has been designed to capture and retain the heat from the sun. It is used to grow plants when the climate does not want to cooperate. Greenhouses can be used in a number of science fair projects and can be used to test concepts from a variety of fields of sciences including engineering, physics, botany and biology.

Project #1 Capturing Heat Energy

In this project the students will be designing a greenhouse that captures heat energy from multiple sources. They will be capturing heat energy from the sun and geothermal heat energy from the ground. This project will require the student to learn about heat extraction techniques related to solar energy and geothermal energy.

Sample hypotheses that can be tested with this project include:
(1) The thickness of the plastic used for enclosing the greenhouse impacts the amount of heat conservation in the greenhouse;
(2) The opaqueness of the material used for enclosing the greenhouse impacts the amount of heat conservation in the greenhouse;
(3) The depth of the insulation on the floor of the greenhouse impacts the amount of geothermal heat conservation in the greenhouse.

Project #2 Growing Radishes

In this project the student will build a greenhouse so that they can grow radishes and conduct experiments on the radish plants during times of the year that are not normally conducive to gardening. Radish projects can look at a number of things. For example, students can try to cross pollinate radishes with another root vegetable like carrots, they can attempt to grow radishes in sand or they can try to manipulate the size of the radish by exposing the plant to 20 hours of light per day.

Project #3 Engineering Greenhouses

For students that are interested in engineering, greenhouse science fair projects can be developed with an engineering focus. For example, students can try to develop a greenhouse using nothing but materials that are normally thrown out or recycled, such as cans, bottles and plastic containers. Students will not only need to design and build their greenhouse, but they will also need to test the effectiveness their greenhouse has in regards to collecting and conserving heat energy.

Project #4 Studying Solar Energy Applications

The final project option will be an application project. Students will be learning about solar energy and how to use this knowledge to harness the suns energy to heat a greenhouse. For this project students will design and build a greenhouse that maximizes the energy delivered by the sun. A good approach for this project is to see if their design can magnify solar energy within the greenhouse to make it effective in cold weather.

New operating systems are necessary to keep up with the demands of today’s users. Mobile phones available right now work on a few such systems like Java, Symbian, Flash, an exclusive OS like the ones utilised by the iPhone and the Windows seven phone.

The most progressive pparticipant in the cell telephone OS market is the Android OS. It’s an open source operating software developed by Google along with other tech corporations. The Android operating system is superb for the tech world and here are the reasons why.

Less expensive mobile products
A chunk of the mobile telephone cost is the O. S. Unless the phone uses special devices and materials like camera lens similar to pro cameras or dear metals for the body, the hardware cost may not amount to a significant value since production costs are going down because of more recent technologies. The free Android OS allows the telephone costs to go down because a gigantic portion of the price isn’t applicable .

Improving Technology
Mobile systems have continuously become better and faster. The advent of this new OS will certainly allow the development of better service and features to the final user. Users should be excited with the chance of larger adventure – like the 90s when we initially began to enjoy SMS, MMS, etc .

Better Services
We’re all acquainted with the iPhone’s ability to allow 3rd party programmers to develop applications, the Android OS is not different as it also inspires other programmers to develop the technology. This allows the end users to enjoy more modern and better applications and will certainly increase the phone’s value. At the end, you’ll get more than you paid for.

Google Products
most of use Google services like Gmail and Google Documents, having an Android device will make this experience more pleasant and pleasurable. With the increasing renown of Google products you may be warranted you are getting onto a good team.

These top reasons make the Android phones a wanted product that will surely make a massive impact on the mobile industry. There are already several brilliantly designed Android phones available in the market, and these phones are getting better and cost less each quarter.

Astral Projection Science – The 2 SHOCKING Facts About Astral Travel You MUST Not Miss

  • Posted on August 9, 2017 at 5:33 pm
wireless-charg-camry

Let’s talk for a few minutes about the SCIENCE behind astral projection. Why? Because if you truly want to take the art and science of OBE’s seriously….you’ve got to embrace the science behind it’s study.

In my view? It’s not good enough to talk about these things in purely science fiction, fantastical terms. If we are TRULY going to take the evolution of human consciousness in the direction it needs to go…..we have to embrace the REAL facts that only rigorous science and study can offer.

Fact #1 – Remote Viewing & Non Local “Awareness” is FINALLY Being Accepted as Fact (By Serious Skeptics as Well)

This is NOT a small fact, either. Richard Wiseman, one of the most famous skeptics in the world, recently (in the Summer of 2009) FINALLY acknowledged what many of us have been saying for well over a decade: Remote Viewing (or seeing at a distance) is not only a real phenomena, it has been PROVEN to be true well beyond any reasonable “burden” that science accepts something to be factual. (Wiseman famously said that while he believes this is true – he still won’t accept “how” it happens as “out of body” – causing yet another uproar amongst the serious researchers who have demonstrated the OBE, remote viewing and astral projection in the real world repeatedly)

Fact #2 – Your First REAL OBE will Forever Change Your Life

Yes, it’s true….having a personal experience with the “supernatural surfboard” will forever change what you believe possible. You’ll FINALLY believe in a soul. And in a transcendent purpose to YOUR life. It’s ONLY amazing, first hand experience that can give you this gift….and if you haven’t had your first, the time to it is now! (nothing will ever quite feel the same once you do)

(and there is NOTHING that will give you the freedom of thought, mind and spirit than learning there is FAR more to your life than meets the eye!)

Warning! Don’t get scammed by another “fake” Psychic EVER Again!

Skeptical? Good! Get a Genuine Psychic Reading Here!

Coaching Centers In West Delhi Science And Commerce Coaching For Standard 11th And 12th

  • Posted on August 6, 2017 at 10:46 pm
untitled-36

The competition in education is growing day by day, and therefore, there is a furore of coaching centers. One can also see an inflow of coaching centers in west Delhi because of which it is becoming a new educational hub. Earlier, the students used to aim for decent marks and thus relied on the self-study. However, now in the age of competition, one cannot aim for a mediocre result. They have to be the best among the rest. Therefore, to achieve their goals by getting those extra marks, one must take proper guidance and coaching. Today the education in schools does not satisfy the needs of a student. In 11th and 12th one wants to get the maximum marks so he or she can get admission in the best colleges. Therefore, attending coaching classes is becoming a need to gain good marks, and survive the competition. There are coaching centers for both commerce and science stream, and in addition prepare students for entrance exams like, BBA, Engg, and Medical. They provide mock exam papers and prepare them for a particular pattern of questions that regularly features in the exam. Not all this happens in school, and so coaching makes students better prepared. Coaching centers use special teaching methods and try to increase the interactions with students. This in turn makes students confident enough to put up their doubts easily. In addition, coaching centre induces a study timetable into the students life, thus motivates them to study harder.

However, one should keep following in mind before opting for a coaching center:

1. As coaching is becoming a business, one must opt for a coaching center which provides best value for money.

2. Coaching centers are also becoming a place for hanging out with friends, so one must take care about that.

3. In addition, with the constant mushrooming of the new coaching center one must ensure about the quality of education.

Therefore, with the advantages, coaching centers have few disadvantages as well. However, the advantages overshadow them and coaching centers turn out to be the real need to achieve success during this educational competitiveness. And so, with an increase in coaching centers in west Delhi, parents are getting more choices of coaching centers for their children. Here one can easily find coaching centers preparing students for their 11th and 12th grade besides providing right guidance for their careers. Thereby, there is no need for parents to send their kids faraway for the proper coaching, because now they can get the same quality nearby their home.
