The third generation of MKK and MKR Linear Modules from Tectra Automation, a member of the Hytec Group, and a subsidiary of Bosch Rexroth AG, expands the range of equipment options for the company’s Linear Module series. The ready-to install linear axes are ready to be connected to the one-point lubrication system. In the corrosion resistant versions, hard chrome plated ball screw drives and ball rails ensure a high resistance to chemicals. The Linear Module consists of an anodised aluminium profile body with integrated ball rails and the option of a ball screw drive or a belt drive. Both drive types are provided for in the new generation, in sizes 65, 80 and 110. They are interchangeable with previous versions in the same dimensions and do not require large constructive adjustments. As ready-to-install assemblies, Linear Modules reduce construction and installation effort in all types of machines and systems. Bosch Rexroth addresses the industry-wide trend of automating maintenance work with one-point lubrication systems, thus increasing the life of the axes with a comprehensive lubrication concept. The corresponding components, ball screw drive and runner block, are ready for one-point lubrication with liquid grease or oil. Operators choosing to use their own lubricants can order the corresponding Linear Module components with only corrosion prevention and complete the initial lubrication for start-up themselves. In the standard version, the Linear Module is delivered with initial lubrication making the product ready to use. In applications where increased corrosion resistance is required, the hard chrome-plated ball screw drive, profiled rails, and runner block resist NR can withstand water and aggressive chemicals. Stainless steel band covers with a new magnet profile enhance this resistance and increase the resistance to coolants. Tectra Automation supplies the ball screw drive variant of the Linear Module in lengths up to 5 400 mm. A screw support . . .
Getting a foot in the door of an agency, business or organisation you’d really love to work for is not always as easy as putting on your Sunday best and flashing the interviewer your brightest, most charming smile. Often, what they’re looking for is actually just a tertiary qualification, which is why many young people place more emphasis on obtaining an undergraduate degree. However, the mistake so many people make is believing that an undergrad qualification is all they need to build a successful and fulfilling career. Most don’t even consider the possibility of taking their studies further, and pursuing honours and post-graduate studies. Vega (a brand of The Independent Insitute of Education – The IIE) conducted a study which found that 95% of its IIE graduates in 2016 found jobs within six months after graduating, which shows why so many young people are opting to complete undergraduate studies alone, and avoid looking into studying further. “The reality is that, while an undergraduate degree might make you stand out more among other less qualified candidates applying for a job, opting against honours or post-graduate studies robs you of bigger career opportunities, and limits your ability to make a real difference within your industry and the world at large,” says Dr Carla Enslin, Head of Strategy & New Business Development at Vega. “Because you’re focused on a specific area of study, you’ll also have the opportunity to collaborate with like-minded people in pursuit of the same or a similar career goal – perhaps you’ll join forces to turn an innovative idea into a meaningful, award-winning reality? The possibilities at this stage are endless,” she continues. Post-graduate studies allow students to delve deeper into their chosen field and gather more in-depth knowledge, where undergraduate studies are designed to introduce you to concepts and new ways of thinking. The learnings gained during post- graduate studies are therefore invaluable, as . . .
SIC 4737 Continuous Baggage Tracking Solutions from SICK accompany the flight baggage on the entire trip - from automatic baggage drop to transport and sorting processes to baggage reclaim. The ALIS system from SICK reliably identifies and detects baggage. Delayed, damaged or lost baggage reduces customer satisfaction and generates additional costs. IATA (International Air Transport Association) Resolution 753 on baggage tracking is intended to encourage airlines to reduce mishandling by implementing cross-industry tracking for every baggage journey. The resolution states that IATA members shall maintain an accurate inventory of baggage by monitoring the acquisition and delivery of baggage. For this to be successfully done, IATA needs to be able to rely on experienced partners. SICK Automation offers reliable technologies for baggage tracking through its laser, camera, and RFID technology, along with single source support. The company supports the process with its extensive baggage-tracking expertise. The leading manufacturer of intelligent sensor solutions for reading bag tags enables the continuous tracking of a bag from the beginning of a journey to the final destination. From receipt of the bag by the airline up to the point at which it is claimed by the passenger, SICK offers a perfect baggage relay system that is transparent, efficient, and fast. The benefit is obvious: performance enhancement for end-to-end baggage transportation. SICK is helping airlines and airport operators close the gaps of baggage mishandling. This cuts costs and increases customer satisfaction – the ultimate intention of IATA's Resolution 753. The guidelines for the continuous tracking of bags from bag drop to reclamation came into effect on 1 June 2018. This can be achieved with the help of expert advice and intelligent sensors. To do this, SICK pays particular attention to forward-thinking baggage identification concepts in order to offer the right answers and solutions. . . .
As we step into September and welcome in spring, it is time for the flowers to start blooming, and the trees to flourish with new leaves sprouting out. The gardens at Granny Mouse Country House and Spa are always stunning, and well maintained by the garden and grounds manager, William Brown- who has a vast knowledge on all things flowers and garden related. If you birthday is celebrated in September, and you are unaware of what flowers represent your birth month, then consider taking a keen interest in the Aster and the Morning glory – as these are your birth flowers. Flowers are seen as a gesture of love or friendship and may have a special symbolism attached to it. Asters They come in a variety of purples and pinks and regarded as a feminine flower representing positivity. They prefer cooler climates with relatively wet summers. They enjoy full to partial sun in which to thrive. According to Horticulturist at Granny Mouse Country House & Spa, William Brown: “Asters should be planted in early to mid-spring in fertilised and moist, well-drained soil and water thoroughly”. Morning glory These feature in an array of pink, purple and blue shades and is a symbol of affection. What is interesting to note about these flowers is that blooms open in the early morning and generally curl closed later in the day. “These flowers are annual climbers that prefer a sunny, sheltered area to grow in. They do however need a lot of sun to reach their full potential. They should also be planted in well-drained soil and should be planted early in the season. Another tip is that if you are planting from seed, soak them first for a day before planting,” Brown adds. According to proflowers.com, “it’s estimated that there are more than 600 different species of these colourful wildflowers. Ancient Greeks name the aster after the Greek word (astér), meaning star. They often used asters to create wreaths, which they would place on altars to pay tribute to the . . .
Weddings are a celebration of two lives becoming one that is witnessed by friends and family. For some who are new to your friends circle, such as colleagues and extended family, it is a lovely idea to add a photo memory wall to the décor of your wedding, so that people can follow your love story from the day it started, with photos capturing your special moments. For those who have lost loved ones and want to include them in the special day, the memory wall could be of the loved one and your moments with them, so that guests can remember that special person on your special day as well. With websites such as Pinterest readily available to the bride-to-be, ideas are endless. For a simple DIY photo wall, Veronica Sookdin of Granny Mouse Country House & Spa gives us a step by step guide to making your own. First: Find a wall that you want to use at the venue. Second: Create the photo wall and hang. Here is how to make it: Tools: String, ribbon or t-yarn. A wooden dowel. Photos (all the same size is preferable). Stapler or hot glue (glue gun needed for hot glue) Method: Wrap the ribbon or yarn around the dowel and leave about a metre and a half extra on the one side and tie to the other side which will be used to hang the photo wall. Measure and mark even spaces along the dowel. This will be your guide to placing the string, yarn or ribbon. Cut string, yarn or ribbon to the same length and then tie each piece to the dowel at the marks. Arrange all of your images in the order you want them and place on the ribbon. Apply a dot of glue at the back centre of each image and secure on the ribbon, yarn or string or staple the top of each image to the string, yarn or ribbon. To secure the photo wall to a wall you can either hit a photo hanging hook to the wall if the venue allows and hang it on there. Alternatively you can hang it on a tree or on a plastic hook fitted with double sided tape that can be removed from the wall. The ideas . . .
South African born and raised dressage rider, Nichola Mohr, has set the wheels in motion to fulfil her dream of riding and competing her own horse overseas with the eventual goal of riding for South Africa at the Olympic Games. Earlier this year she loaded her best friend, Callaho Winston, onto a flight to the island of Mauritius for him to wait out his mandatory quarantine before flying off to Olympic dressage rider, Tanya Seymour’s yard in Germany where him and Nichola will be based. “It has always been a dream of mine to compete internationally and in the Olympics for my country,” says Nichola. “To be able to ride alongside my idol, Charlotte Dujardin, would be a dream come true!” Nichola, whose love of horses and riding career started before she could even walk, has been seriously competing since she was 8 years old, and in the last 18years since then has competed her horses up to Grand Prix level. “My greatest riding achievement to date definitely has to be competing my off-the-track thoroughbred up to Grand Prix level,” says Nichola. Nichola has been in the Western Province team since the age of 10 and during that time has also represented South Africa. She has also been invited to train and compete at international yards in Germany, Holland, New Zealand and in the UK. Winston comes from the highly esteemed Callaho Stud, and was bought by Nichola at their annual auction in 2013. “We don't often try the horses out before the Callaho Auction, but in 2013 we went to try the horses and Winston was the only one I was interested in. We bought his brother, Fabriccio, 2 years before and we loved working with him, which made me want Winston even more,” explains Nichola. “The day of the auction arrived and I'd never been so cold before. Just before Lot no: 9 – Winston - was meant to make his way into the arena, a huge gust of wind blew through the outdoor arena and spooked the horses warming up there. Winston's rider turned him to stop, he lost his footing and . . .
Johannesburg, 18 September 2018 - Fear of the dentist is known as odontophobia, dentophobia, or more casually as dental anxiety. As dental professionals, and not mental health professionals, our focus isn’t as much on why people are afraid of the dentist, but instead on what we can do for those who are, so that they can receive compassionate and effective treatment. It is important to remember that some studies estimate up to 75% of dental patients experience mild to severe dental fear. So it’s actually more likely for a person to be uncomfortable with the idea of being in a dentist’s chair than not.

We work with dentists to envision what‘s possible and provide innovative solutions to achieve it.

Author : My Dirty Little Bitcoin Secrets PDF EBook by Ofir Beigel How much is enough, well it depends, I usually use 300 as a rule of thumb, but the more samples the better. If you can get to 500 or even 1,000 that’s great. A/B testing - When you don’t know what will work better. One form of testing I want you to be familiar with although we probably won’t talk about it that much is A/B testing. A/B testing (sometimes called split testing) is comparing two versions of a web page to see which one performs better. You compare two web pages by showing the two versions (let's call them A and B) to similar visitors at the same time. The one that gives a better conversion rate, wins! There are a lot of A/B testing tools out there that help you create the different versions and measure the results. This is used when you want to test which image works better on a sales page for example or any other element of the page for that matter. We probably won’t use it that much in the course of this book but I just wanted you to be familiar with the term in case you encounter it. Tracking tools you should know about. So now that I gave you an overview of how tracking on the web looks like, here are a few tools you can use on your website to help you track better. Keep this list as a reference and decide which tools you want to implement after . . .
