Ever worried about keeping loved ones informed during an emergency? How about staying updated in an earthquake? Or what will happen if you become incapable of seeking help?
The Earthquake App addresses these problems by providing a unified platform that educates the user before disaster occurs, notify loved ones and track the user during a crisis, and follow up with the user after the initial strike. It relays live-time condition and status of the user to their specified contacts in an easy-to-understand and informative way, while maximizes the user’s chance of acquiring help and provides the user with a peace of mind when dealing with the unexpected.

Developed by two undergraduate college students, the Earthquake App is a Windows Phone application inspired by our own experience and our passion to create technology that will enhance people’s everyday living.

This team is participating in Microsoft’s Imagine Cup Software Development competition (integrating Azure) hoping to make the treatment of tuberculosis easier for patients.
To combat this problem, we plan to create a SMS-based automated alert system that will remind patients on a regimen to take their drugs or notify them of required checkups, along with an accompanying UI for medical staff to manage those patients, so that even those patients who cannot afford or have no access to personal caretakers will have a higher rate of success with their treatments. Because of the widespread availability of cell phones around the world, SMS is readily available and easily accessible, even in developing countries like India and Africa. We hope to harness this availability to create a service that could potentially have a great influence on TB treatment and save numerous lives.

This application was created for my CS50 Final Project in Fall 2011 to provide a platform for unifying useful pre-existing Harvard services (mobile websites, shuttle tracker, dining hall information, etc.) along with several other utilities for added convenience (a unique simple calculator, unit converter, weather search). Also this application was created to facilitate the potential for future expansion – that it should be reasonably easy to add other pages (such as for maps and even more interactive options) and even generalize the concept for audiences larger than Harvard.

When I first launched the "things NOT made in China" photo group, I was hoping to see household items not made in China. Needless to say, not too many things are not made in China these days.

Of the things still made outside of China, they’re mostly processed foods, heavy machinery like automobiles and airplanes.

I was quite delighted the other day, when I bought my first ever shave brush, to find out that it’s made in Italy!

Quoting Smithsonian National Air and Space Museum | Vought OS2U-3 Kingfisher:

The Kingfisher was the U.S. Navy’s primary ship-based, scout and observation aircraft during World War II. Revolutionary spot welding techniques gave it a smooth, non-buckling fuselage structure. Deflector plate flaps that hung from the wing’s trailing edge and spoiler-augmented ailerons functioned like extra flaps to allow slower landing speeds. Most OS2Us operated in the Pacific, where they rescued many downed airmen, including World War I ace Eddie Rickenbacker and the crew of his B-17 Flying Fortress.

In March 1942, this airplane was assigned to the battleship USS Indiana. It later underwent a six-month overhaul in California, returned to Pearl Harbor, and rejoined the Indiana in March 1944. Lt. j.g. Rollin M. Batten Jr. was awarded the Navy Cross for making a daring rescue in this airplane under heavy enemy fire on July 4, 1944.

Quoting Smithsonian National Air and Space Museum | Boeing B-29 Superfortress "Enola Gay":

Boeing’s B-29 Superfortress was the most sophisticated propeller-driven bomber of World War II and the first bomber to house its crew in pressurized compartments. Although designed to fight in the European theater, the B-29 found its niche on the other side of the globe. In the Pacific, B-29s delivered a variety of aerial weapons: conventional bombs, incendiary bombs, mines, and two nuclear weapons.

On August 6, 1945, this Martin-built B-29-45-MO dropped the first atomic weapon used in combat on Hiroshima, Japan. Three days later, Bockscar (on display at the U.S. Air Force Museum near Dayton, Ohio) dropped a second atomic bomb on Nagasaki, Japan. Enola Gay flew as the advance weather reconnaissance aircraft that day. A third B-29, The Great Artiste, flew as an observation aircraft on both missions.

Quoting Smithsonian National Air and Space Museum | Lockheed P-38J-10-LO Lightning :

In the P-38 Lockheed engineer Clarence "Kelly" Johnson and his team of designers created one of the most successful twin-engine fighters ever flown by any nation. From 1942 to 1945, U. S. Army Air Forces pilots flew P-38s over Europe, the Mediterranean, and the Pacific, and from the frozen Aleutian Islands to the sun-baked deserts of North Africa. Lightning pilots in the Pacific theater downed more Japanese aircraft than pilots flying any other Allied warplane.

Maj. Richard I. Bong, America’s leading fighter ace, flew this P-38J-10-LO on April 16, 1945, at Wright Field, Ohio, to evaluate an experimental method of interconnecting the movement of the throttle and propeller control levers. However, his right engine exploded in flight before he could conduct the experiment.

Here are some tips to help you find and choose the best plastic injection moulding company in China:

* Verify the company’s experience in mould making – Narrow your selection of plastic injection moulding companies in China to include only those that have been in business for at least a decade. Their years of experience should be a good indicator of their commitment to the manufacturing industry and to serving their clients well, or they would not have lasted that long. Being in the business for that long should have enabled the plastic injection moulding company to make connections with a wide array of businesses from various industries, too.

* Find out what other customers think of their service and products – To gain confidence in the company’s reputation and years in the business, look up reviews and feedback about them. Ask for references and consider companies that have worked with well-known brands. For instance, one of the highly-rated plastic injection moulding companies in China has experience in producing parts for Canon, Volkswagen, Brother, Xiaomi, and Toyota.

* Find out how they work – Established and reputed plastic injection moulding companies in China follow a chain of stringent quality management standards to ensure high-quality products. Steps include pre- and post-measures, which help shorten the tooling and moulding processes. This way, the company is able to deliver results ahead of the deadline to keep you a step ahead of your competition. Consider the types of plastic injection moulding services they offer, too. Leading providers are well-appointed and employ highly skilled and trained specialists to conduct double-shot or over-mould, high precision, insert injection, gas-assisted injection moulding, and thin-wall injection moulding.

* Determine how you can get in touch with them – Make sure they have reliable professional sales and engineering teams, which you can easily contact for assistance and for inquiries.

I bought the 500W 110 to 220 voltage converter (1) to power the Denon DN-X800 digital/analog mixer (pictured) and the Denon DN-2600F DJ CD player (not shown)—two pieces of 110V electronics which I bought in the US. The cords of the Denon units are not very long so I put the converter on the shelves (2).

Turns out that this is the best position for all electronics so even though I don’t need to convert the voltage for 100-240V electronics e.g. the iPad / iPhone, I now also plug the charger into the converter because it saves me time scrambling on the floor looking for outlet.

I think that I am going to make a rack mount unit and just create rows of outlet on desk level as that makes the most sense to me.

# Notes
1. I bought mine at Sham Shui Po (SSP 深水埗) for HK0 (US).
2. Doron Lachisch’s Cubitec Shelving (2008) combines the exceptional strength and stability of injection-molded polypropylene with simple, modular design. Available at Design Within Reach dwr.com — highly recommended. I bought mine in 2009. Looks new til this day because it is easily cleanable.

Look for High Quality, Affordable Manufacturing Equipment in East Asian Markets

Look for High Quality, Affordable Manufacturing Equipment in East Asian Markets

East Asian markets have been known for providing with low cost but high efficiency machinery. If you are a new manufacturing start up, then you should consider this as the top option. Not only, you save money, but also improve product quality.

East Asian Markets Are Not The Cheap Shot Many Think They Are.

This is not some market talk, but more of a productive talk. We will be talking about quality machinery that you can buy from here. If you are a manufacturer based somewhere in Europe, North America or India, you would certainly a cheaper alternative to production. This is very much true in the case of the industries that are springing up recently. We are talking about new start-ups that people initiate in the manufacturing business, where they have to invest a substantial part of money for their industry.

This requires a balance of quality and money. These new startups are looking for machinery that is not only affordable but also efficient. We are not talking about the extremely efficient German-Japanese kind of machines, but at those that perform comparatively lower, but are at least decent performers.

Are you looking for a plastic mould? Why not look for a plastic mould China?

But Why You Should Go For The East Asian Markets Only

This is no hard and fast rule that you should go only to these markets. However, when you are looking for some decent pricing with decent performance, you have to move towards this direction. The reason is that you don’t have other markets where you can get this. You will get quality, but with a heavy price, or you may get low costs but with no performance.
We don’t claim that these markets are the ultimate place where you can find all the quality, but you can be assured that you will find at least the decent quality of manufacturing machines that can really help you in the beginning.

This is especially true for those companies that are new start-ups for manufacturing. You know that you need more quality and also that you cannot just afford to spend so much money initially. The only way you can get this done is by contacting a supplier anywhere here.

In addition, you can find many innovative machineries and equipments being sold here. The machinery does come with guarantee and warranty, so need not worry about post sales services.
Are you going to buy a decent quality plastic mould? Do you need a supplier of plastic mould China? Well, that would surely be a good decision for you if you are new into the business.

Countries and which essential to be bought from more defined markets. If a low-cost country is befitting, appraisal of lead times can help set up which trade good can be began from distant low-cost countries and which need to be acquisition more topically from Mexico or Eastern Europe. Executing of this appraisal necessitates going on the far side emblematic procurable piece-price investigation. It requires the involvement of engineering and manufacturing units to define the total.

All about rawness poor China outsourcing attack, bad provider direction build up and too overmuch haste to hire people to activity in or sent to China. I am seeing too many business when we have to activity our customers’ China Procurable Offices direction and technical force in getting the right consequences from their Chinese providers. The Mattel difficulty can be a contained difficulty if they had the correct people to anticipate the predictable difficulties from fast moving providers in a fast growing country.

It has acquired a low wage charge which mechanically cuts the price of the goods. Action this as an benefit, the China manufacturers have contracted their field. Today, China has a very good dictation complete the physics items, goods of holdable and current appliances with a lower berth fund too. China also industries Computer goods much inexpensive and as we know the improvement of IT substructure of Asia in last decennial has formed like anything, China got the vantage to grow its market in global much quick. Thus with a low cost vantage, the China makers are boffo in making China Beginning as an constitutional part of global trade.

Many Western companies are eager to source Chinese parts and products in order to achieve these goals. Retailing giants such as Carrousel are purchasing an spread out range of Chinese-made crackings for up to 40% less than the cost of comparable with bang-up made in formed countries. Driven by a constant margin squeeze, an acceleration number of commercialized endeavor players also found their way to source basic natural science and trade good, small device, molds, commercial enterprise and much more in China. Ford Motors, for example, has spent appreciable effort to source more parts in China, but still those production stand for only a fraction of the components used in their transports.

This is the initiation conception of Provider Improvement: A Provider Change of state project normally starts when the owner of a Chinese institution accepts the active activity of his possible client over a period of time and engages his company in the implementation of all the best practices brought to him and his staff. In return, the buyer creates a tailor-made production facility for its parts, and a loyal china supplier. After 6 months of weekly visits and workshops with the different departments, the Chinese factory undramatic ally improves and the production starts.
