  • Business, Garbage, Service, Tech Comments Off on High Tech Garbage Services – Ludicrous But True

    While many companies have sprung up to offer different product and services, collection systems, junk hauling, treatment and disposal of waste have been relatively untouched by technology. For example, the only technology used by junk hauling Orange County is a website to reach customers who prefer to use search engines to find professional hauling services.

    However, all that is changing through Rubicon Global in Atlanta that managed to raise more than $145 million from investors. A garbage service using technology sounds ludicrous but it is true. RTS is making it simple for customers to schedule on-demand pickups using a phone app. The business is audited to establish how much garbage it generates in a set amount of time.

    The fact is WeWork, Whole Foods and SoulCycle have signed multi-year contracts with RTS in exchange for their highly flexible pricing options and notifications about the arrival of a truck and reports on where the garbage will be sent. Customers can now see that the organic truck has picked up their garbage and taken it to a farm or waste energy facility. They see real numbers not estimates.

    Instead of investing in their trucks, RTS has partnered with mid-size independent haulers. They are provided with tablets to make their work more efficient. There are 18,000 mid-tier independent hauling companies in the United States. RTS uses technology to fill out the truck routes that already exist. The trucks travel 24/7 and they are given access to business that they never had before. For RTS, it is like creating their own fleet.

    RTS can separate and track what is on the trucks. There are materials like cardboard and plastic that can generate additional revenue. The secondary market for commodities like plastics and cardboard is now worth $90 million. Since there are smart cities and smart trucks, it is important to control the flow of waste.

    It is quite common for junk to build up because they are bulky and heavy. Instead of trying to move the heavy items, a better option is junk hauling Orange County with a team that is trained and insured to ensure safety. They know how to haul junk properly and what equipment to use for an efficient task.

  • Car, Service, Tech Comments Off on The Technology Behind The Michelin Tires Used In Bugatti’s 300 Mph Record

    The only vehicle component that touches the roads is the tires that are supposed to withstand the speeds that the vehicle is capable of reaching. At exceptionally high speeds, intense heat, pressure and other forces can affect the tires leading to excessive wear, disintegration or a sudden blowout which can end in a disaster.

    How did the Bugatti Chiron Super Sport 300+ reach 304.77 miles per hour on the Ehra-Lessien test track to become the first production car to reach the coveted 300mph mark? The answer is lots of money, a fearless test driver, Andy Wallace and tires. According to Stefan Ellrott, Bugatti head of development, the new Chiron Michelin tires were beefed up with carbon fiber on the tire carcass which is the layer of rubber found below the tread and responsible for load-bearing and shock-absorbing.

    Advances in technology also allowed the safe 300mph record. The fact is circular bits of rubber are not supposed to withstand high speeds. This is the reason why the series tire of Chiron has to be modified slightly with the addition of a carbon fiber layer. The Chiron Super Sport 300+ still uses a Michelin Pilot Cup 2 tire but with an additional layer of protection.

    In order to create a tire that could withstand forces and provide the driver with warning in the event that it could not, Bugatti and Michelin had to take the development team to the aircraft tire testing center in Charlotte, North Carolina. A lot of bench testing made sure that the tires were safe. With new tires, the first signs that they may completely explode are noise and vibrations.

    Because Bugatti has established a record, other manufacturers like Koenigsegg are expected to try and beat Bugatti’s record next year with or without the help of Michelin. It is expected that they will be using special tires, too.

    New awe-inspiring tire designs are guaranteed to set your ride apart from the rest. There are brand new tires from highly regarded names like Michelin, Uniroyal, Yokohama, Bridgestone and BF Goodrich for cost effective prices. The tires are certified to accurately fit the vehicle’s size, tread type and matched rims.

    Aside from the driver, tracking equipment also ensures that the truck is in good shape. Smart trackers monitor the engine’s health and status and alert the driver whenever a part needs fixing. Moreover, some devices also notify the driver of the truck’s maintenance schedule. This can help companies reduce their costs on vehicle repair as there is constant surveillance.

    With the benefits listed above, a tracking device is definitely a lucrative investment. Real-time reports and updates can surely help a trucking company monitor and oversee the condition of their trucks, cargo and drivers. This constant checking can help them improve their system by consistently removing the chinks in their armor. Technology has definitely helped trucking companies provide a faster, more competent and reliable service to their customers.

  • Mosquitoe, Pest Control, Service, Tips Comments Off on Study Reveals That Mosquitoes Carrying Zika Virus Are Resistant To Pyrethroids

    There are more than 3,500 species of mosquitoes all over the world and more than 300 can be found in Australia. In order to protect a person from the diseases that are carried by mosquitoes, people purchase insect repellents or mosquito nets.A very good option is Mozzie band in Australia, a silicon-based wristband that keeps away mosquitoes, sand flies, midges and insects.

The mosquito Aedesaegyptiis known as a carrier of dengue, Zika virus and yellow fever.

    According to James Becnel, an entomologist of Mosquito and Fly Research Unit of USDA, Aedesaegypti was the reason for the limited Florida outbreaks of dengue in 2009 and 2010. When there are health emergencies, different strategies are used t control mosquitoes like the application of a pesticide sprays through trucks or aircraft. However, it is important to understand the magnitude of insecticide resistance before an effective control program can be undertaken.

    A first statewide study was made by a collaborative group from the USDA-ARS, Navy Entomology Center of Excellence, Florida Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services and Florida mosquito control districts. They measured the scope of pyrethroid insect resistance of Ae. Aegyptiand Aedesalbopictus. These are other species of mosquitoes carrying the chikungunya virus. Resistance to pyrethroid insecticides in many locations all over the world can have a negative on mosquito control operations.

    The 4-year study that was published in PLOS Neglected Tropical Diseases revealed that resistance to permethrin, an insecticide in the pyrethroid family was present in the 20 strains of Aedesaegypti collected all over the state. In order to effectively control the resistant populations, 60 times above the susceptible levels of permethrin doses must be used.

    Mosquitoes are present outdoors and it is important to wear Mozzie band in Australia to enjoy a summer picnic or family camping. The wristband is natural, non-toxic and DEET-free. It is safe to use and effective up to 48 hours.
