Dublin, May 31, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — The “IoT in Pumps – 2018 End-user Feedback on

Dublin, May 31, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — The “IoT in Pumps – 2018 End-user Feedback on IoT Implementation and Challenges” report has been added to ResearchAndMarkets.com’s offering. Pumps industry currently worth $38 billion has the potential to unlock new revenue streams and growth opportunities by integrating IIoT technologies such as intelligent sensors, cloud computing, big data and analytics, cognitive intelligence and industrial mobility. Pumps being the top 5 assets with respect to operational and maintenance challenges faced by end-users, smart and intelligent pumps are likely to gain wider traction and serves as a viable proposition for end-users who are aggressively working towards diminishing their operational costs. In the present context with pressing need to cut down operational expenditure (OPEX), end-users are willing to explore pump solutions that assist in monitoring its health condition, ease maintenance, prevent unexpected failure and asset downtime and in total minimize operational and maintenance costs. The onset of the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) is transforming the entire manufacturing ecosystem by redefining the pro...

Juno’s Latest Photo of Jupiter Is Breathtaking | Smart News

On October 29, the Juno spacecraft that has been orbiting Jupiter since 2016, swooped above the planet’s North Temperate Belt and snapped what may be its most mesmerizing image of the gas giant’s clouds yet. The image, taken 4,400 miles above the planet and enhanced by citizen-scientists and artists Gerald Eichstädt and Seán Doran, includes white pop-up clouds and an anticyclonic storm that appears as a white oval. The stormy image isn’t the only stunner to come from the batch of raw image data from Juno’s sixteenth pass of the planet recently released by NASA. Late last week Doran and image processing collaborator Brian Swift posted other shots, including one that shows a cloud that looks suspiciously like a dolphin diving through the clouds. So, if you were to board a spaceship and take a peek out of the window at Jupiter, would you see beautiful cloud dolphins, bright white ovals and the Van Gogh-like swirls that NASA has published in the last few years? Not quite. Raw data from the Juno probe’s JunoCam is corrected for distortions, brightness and color before being posted. That process used to be done in-house by NASA, which would release images from its missions months afte...

Volvo S60: The S express goes toe-to-toe with the BMW 3 Series, Audi A4 and Mercedes C-Class

AS every sun-seeking holidaymaker knows, you have to get up early to beat the Germans to the best deckchairs on the beach in your Mediterranean resort of choice, writes William Scholes. It probably isn’t stretching the metaphor, or the national stereotype, too far to suggest that when Germany’s premium car-makers turn up pool-side at the Costa del Mid-Size-Sports-Saloon, they don’t just bring one towel, they bring a bale. So dominant are the BMW 3 Series, Audi A4 and Mercedes-Benz C-Class in this part of the market that no-one else has really got a look in. Many have tried. The Lexus IS, with its refined hybrid drivetrain, company car-user-friendly benefit-in-kind tax rate and epic build quality, has made a better go of it than most. Alfa Romeo’s svelte Giulia is as great to drive as it is to look it, but remains a rare sight; Jaguar’s XE is undercooked and unloved. And then there’s Volvo. Its 3 Series rival is the S60 and though a fine car in its own right, earlier versions hadn’t been able to get up early enough to drape a towel over the best deckchair. Until now, that is. The latest, new-to-Northern Ireland S60 doesn’t just pack...

How Suzy Amis Cameron, Famke Janssen, Discovery and Bad Robot Reduce Plastic Waste

To combat the ubiquity of single-use plastics (a new study by Ecolab research group found microplastics are even blowing in the wind), Angelenos are hiring consultation services like Sustain L.A. ($150 for an at-home session) and some stars, including Anne Hathaway, are adopting “Zero Waste” tactics to dramatically reduce how much trash they produce in the first place. “If you start becoming mindful of your impact, you start to notice every time you waste something,” says Michael Kaliski, founder of Good Planet Innovation, which works with film and TV productions to create green sets. With plastic so omnipresent in our lives, every day can feel like a sort of obstacle course. Thankfully, there are plenty of solutions and alternatives — beyond the obvious one of carrying your own reusable water bottle and never using single-use plastic ones — that can help you dramatically reduce the amount of waste your household creates every week. “I always try to minimize the presence of plastic in our lives,” says Suzy Amis Cameron, the author of the new book OMD: The Simple, Plant-Based Program to Save Your Health, Save Your Waistline, and Save the Planet. She says that she and ...

Fiber optics, or optical fiber, refers to the medium and the technology associated with the transmission

Fiber optics, or optical fiber, refers to the medium and the technology associated with the transmission of information as light pulses along a glass or plastic strand or fiber. A fiber optic cable can contain a varying number of these glass fibers — from a few up to a couple hundred. Surrounding the glass fiber core is another glass layer called cladding. A layer known as a buffer tube protects the cladding, and a jacket layer acts as the final protective layer for the individual strand. Fiber optics transmit data in the form of light particles — or photons — that pulse through a fiber optic cable. The glass fiber core and the cladding each have a different refractive index that bends incoming light at a certain angle. When light signals are sent through the fiber optic cable, they reflect off the core and cladding in a series of zig-zag bounces, adhering to a process called total internal reflection. The light signals do not travel at the speed of light because of the denser glass layers, instead traveling about 30% slower than the speed of light. To renew, or boost, the signal throughout its journey, fiber optics transmission sometimes requires repeaters at ...

This man is fighting the French government for control of France.com

The French government seized his domain name and shut down his business. Now, he’s suing to get them back On March 12th, France.com suddenly went offline. For 24 years, it had been a tourist and travel booking site, but now it was redirecting to the English version of the government’s official site at France.fr. No one was more surprised than Jean-Noel Frydman, the previous owner of the domain and trademark holder for France.com. Overnight, his website had disappeared, and all associated email addresses were suddenly bouncing back. In a matter of minutes, a unique and lucrative asset had gone up in smoke. “It’s all gone. In one instant, gone,” Frydman tells The Verge. “It’s been incredibly challenging. I have no contingency for this.” Now, Frydman is fighting to get it back. He’s currently suing the French government and a string of hosting providers in federal court, hoping to undo the swap and rebuild his business. The fight has turned into a lesson in international relations, with US and French courts dueling over a prized slice of intangible namespace, testing exactly how neutral and international the infrastructure of the web really is. Frydman first registered the domain i...

More than 30 Products for Law Enforcement Apparel Police Accessories and Body Armor

A law enforcement officer’s apparel, gear, accessories, body armor products were chosen for specific reasons. And those requirements vary depending on each agency and police department from sea to shining sea.  Not too long ago there was an outcry over the image of a police officer becoming too militaristic versus the traditional officer walking down Main Street handing small children a friendly pack of baseball cards. (I know I still have mine stored away somewhere in a cardboard box up in my attic.) Though, today it seems trends have veered away from a TDU / BDU to an image of their own. Patrol officers have higher-performing clothing options than ever before – all while keeping an important professional and friendly look. It’s a balancing act to put the aspects of image, practicality, and cost in check – one countless manufacturers and suppliers look to provide a great number of options.  General TacticWith a classic look and an unexpected comfort, the Long Sleeve Stretch Shirt was made from General Tactic’s 4-way stretch fabric with Polygiene, an odor control technology based on antibacterial treatment that gives you a fresh-all-day confidence that a...
