Understand the hidden costs of free 0-10V LED dimming drivers (MAGAZINE)

Roland Ledyard explains how 0-10V and digitally-connected LED drivers differ in functionality, and how those differences are manifested in commercial solid-state lighting installations. ROLAND LEDYARD explains how 0-10V and digitally-connected LED drivers differ in functionality, and how those differences are manifested in commercial solid-state lighting installations. One of the most persuasive words in marketing has got to be “free,” despite the fact that we generally know that nothing in life is truly free, especially when it comes to LED drivers. Dimming functionality in drivers, implemented based on 0-10V controls, is sometimes touted as free, but in reality nearly every technology decision has a cost associated with it. Read along to learn about the issues with 0-10V LED drivers that can lead you to optimal selection and understand how more-robust digitally-addressable drivers may ultimately prove more economical in an actual solid-state lighting (SSL) project. The adage that nothing truly comes for free is certainly true for 0-10V LED drivers. Many 0-10V LED fixture manufacturers offer dimming drivers as a no-cost upgrade versus what we will call switching dri...

New immunotherapy moves further into clinical testing with promising results

August 6, 2019 — Success in international clinical trials leads to U.S. based research organizations beginning phase I/II clinical trials. If this form of immunotherapy is successful and deemed safe, then it could save the lives of liver cancer patients across the world. Hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) is a rare disorder in the United States, but the most common primary tumor of the liver. According to the National Organization for Rare Disorders there are approximately six new cases of HCC per every 100,000 people in the general population of the U.S. The number of people who develop HCC in the U.S. has risen in the last four decades. About 31,780 people will die of liver cancers in 2019. The ET140202 ARTEMIS AbTCR T-cell receptor platform is a novel proprietary technology that was designed to utilize the natural biology of T-cells to fight cancer potential to eliminate T-cell hyperactivation and consequently, cytokine release syndrome (CRS). The platform contains two domains: an antibody-based antigen-binding domain and an effector domain. HCC is associated with elevated levels of alpha fetoprotein (AFP). Moreover, HLA-A2 (human leukocyte antigen) is a major histocompati...

£18-a-pot caviar is farmed at an old mushroom plant in deepest Yorkshire

It is a region more usually associated with Yorkshire pudding, Tetley tea and Wensleydale cheese, but now God’s own county can boast a more exotic – and unexpected – contribution to Britain’s food supplies: caviar. The almost impossibly expensive delicacy is normally shipped from the chilly Caspian Sea to grace the delicatessen counters of stores such as Harrods and Fortnum & Mason. But now the sturgeon’s eggs are being produced in a former mushroom farm just outside Leeds – and going on sale in Aldi this week. ‘When I tell my friends that I work at a caviar farm, they say, “What? There’s a caviar farm in Yorkshire?” ’ exclaims Megan Babicz, ‘“No way!” ’ Yes way. Because Megan, 17, is one of five workers at KC Caviar, which you’ll find down a dirt track near the former coal mining town of Garforth, past fields of winter kale and turnips. I expected to discover a large lake – West Yorkshire’s very own Caspian. Instead, I was met by six large sheds, which a decade ago housed mushroom compost beds. Inside each shed are three tanks some 10ft across, which look like over-sized paddling pools. And inside each pool there are 30 5ft sturgeon – dark and strangely prehistoric looking...

2019 Porsche 911 Speedster First Drive: Dosing The GT3 With Vitamin D

Despite a provocative naming strategy, the Porsche 911 Speedster’s first four generations looked quite a bit faster than they actually were. Sleek and stripped down, the limited-edition roadsters flirted with incremental weight savings and minor gains in power, but never tapped into the hardcore performance potential of Porsche’s GT cars. Enter 2019, and things are suddenly different: the new Porsche 911 Speedster disrupts the paradigm by packing genuine GT hardware beneath its low-slung bodywork, making a track-capable Speedster that finally goes as fast as it looks. Strip away the exterior – the chopped windshield, sloping carbon-fiber decklid (which is the largest structure of its kind Porsche has ever produced), and various other lightweight panels – and the mechanicals echo what you’ll find in the GT3 Touring. Of course, the naturally aspirated 4.0-liter flat-six figures prominently into the storyline. Producing 502 horsepower and 346 lb-ft of torque, the engine is a hugely symbolic totem for Porsche that keeps a foot in the past by not succumbing to forced induction, and inheriting a complex individual throttle body setup from the GT3R race car. Continuing the theme, all 1...

Taking into account the lifestyle of modern people and the amount of time they spend sitting

Taking into account the lifestyle of modern people and the amount of time they spend sitting in front of a pc, bending over smartphones and tablets, manufacturers of medical devices are paying close attention to all sorts of the so-called “posture correctors.” This category of goods includes various belt constructions, bondages, spine fixing corsets, clavicular straps, and other appliances aimed at treating back problems. So let’s dig deeper into the question of wearing posture correctors and look at the situation from a purely medical point of view. Do not know if posture correctors are what you need and want to know more about the indications for the appliance use? Let us get all this straightened out. Experts confirm the alarming increase in spine pathologies in the last decade. And this fact is not surprising at all since with the development of the electronic device industry, people spend more and more time in front of the computer, spending hours bending over smartphones and tablets. And in most cases, people do not think about the correctness of their posture. Lately there is alarming increase in the condition which is called “text neck”. Hence, this all causes osteochon...

Alvo Medical Shows Off Its Vision of The Future of Operating Room Design

October 16th, 2019 Scott Jung Emergency Medicine, Exclusive, Military Medicine, Neurosurgery, Orthopedic Surgery, Plastic Surgery, Radiology, Surgery Located in the picturesque town of Śmigiel, Poland, Alvo Medical is a family-run business that specializes in everything related to operating room layout and design. Since the company first started producing steel operating room furniture 25 years ago, Alvo has grown to become a worldwide provider of innovative healthcare solutions in the OR. During our recent visit to Poland, we had the opportunity to visit Alvo’s corporate offices and “Customer Experience Center,” a hands-on showroom of their current and upcoming technologies. The centerpiece of the showroom is Alvo’s integrated and modular operating room. Modular operating room design incorporates fixtures and furniture that can be quickly and inexpensively customized, removed, and replaced to fit the needs of the clinical staff. For example, instead of the bare, painted walls in a standard operating room, an Alvo-designed OR is lined with interchangeable stainless steel and glass panels. These wall panels contain an anti-microbial silver ion treatment and better reflect interio...

‘Shark Tank’ inventor from Viera High gets visit from Mark Cuban

Mark Cuban of “Shark Tank” visited Nohbo production facility in Melbourne to film a Jan. 19 update on the success of Viera High graduate Ben Stern. After learning depressing data about plastic bottle waste in his freshman biology class, Ben Stern realized that “the farthest room away from the recycling bin was the bathroom.” Then the future entrepreneur spotted his mother using a Tide laundry detergent pod. ”And the idea hit me like Eureka!” he described. By age 16, Stern invented the plastic bottle-less Nohbo Ball, an eco-friendly, single-use shampoo ball. The Viera High junior successfully pitched his innovative product to billionaire investor Mark Cuban on ABC’s ”Shark Tank” in February 2016. Fast forward four years. After various tribulations, 70-hour workweeks and “blood, sweat and tears,” Stern has reformulated his signature product and reorganized his Melbourne company, eyeing future growth. “We have purchasing commitments in Europe for 76 million units over the course of the next four years. We’re closing out our Series A round of financing for $3.35 million from a series of syndicate investors...
