Today, many technology innovations provide great functionality at lower price, giving more values to customers and stimulate mobile consumer market. The trend had shifted the consumers closer to business where on-line transaction can be done through simple clicks at palm.

Product designers have played a great role in improving interfaces for better information presentation over mobile devices. Many technology corporations have been engineering on artificial intelligence to humanize handheld devices into a better personal assistant. In the most familiar face, Siri technology in iPhone 4S is the most advance implementation of voice recognition technology that can help the owner to get things done by asking.
Geographical location technology must also be accredited for the success of Mobile Commerce. In order to deliver location service, mobile device tracks individual physical location as he or she moves about. Without many consumers knowing, some data-mining company use the Global Position System (GPS) to track their movement for market research. As such, this help researchers to study the consumers’ habits and behavior to exploit further possible technologies to complement lifestyle.

With much convenience provided through GSM (Global System for Mobile Communication), the most common cellular standard, extended by the GPRS (General Packet Radio System), banks and payment gateways have adopted token authentication as the best practice for safe mobile transaction. Soon to be true, more consumers will have a better reason to switch to cashless payment after the announcement of NXP Semiconductors N.V. secure contact-less Near Field Communication (NFC) technology solution.

On top of the cutting-edge technology, mobile web platform is available today to help company engages in the development and management of mobile site without much complexity. It is an on-line system that provides convenience to member of staff to manage the entire mobile web site without the need for any technical knowledge. For many business owners, this is thought to be highly sustainable and cost-effective than the traditional method of engaging highly paid professional to work on project based web development. A mobile site builder helps organisation to suit their mobile site exactly to the company image without compromising its security.

Strong infrastructure combines with innovative technological ideas give additional earning opportunities to vendors with reliable products. Besides setting up a physical store, a virtual business is equally important to attract technology savvy consumers who tend to leverage on the social network to search for better deals in the vast internet space.

These events occurred before and may recur in situations where observers losing control in crowded places. The crowd control at the stage is often too difficult: the famous play teams from the Premier League, stadiums are overcrowded.

Big stadiums in the world May contain an enormous number of people: for example, the ability of Wembley Stadium is 90,000 people, and Old Trafford Stadium – 76,000. The capacity Luzhniki Stadium in Russia is about 85000 people, and the Stadio Olimpico in Rome-82000.

Mixed Integer Programming

  • Posted on March 2, 2018 at 1:04 pm

An Integer Programming problem is a mathematical optimization problem of which some or all of the variables are limited to be integral numbers. In a lot of settings the term Integer Programming refers to Integer Linear Programming also known as mixed integer programming. Integer programming is NP-hard. A special case is the 0-1 integer linear programming, in which the unknown values are binary. This is one of the 21 NP-complete problems of Karp.

In linear programming problems, all the variables are real numbers. In problems constrains and the function remain linear, but some or all of the variables are integers. So while linear programming has continuous variables, Integer programming has discrete (integer) variables and Binary Integer programming problems have binary variables. Mixed Integer programming problems have discrete and continuous variables, examples are numbers, 0/1 decisions. Non-linear conditions can be formulated as linear. (if-then conditions) Integer problems are much harder to solve than continuous problems. Discrete problems are often NP-complete. (no polygonal algorithm) The amount of solutions is limited in most cases, but limited can still be a large number.

Some examples of Integer Programming problems are: designing distribution networks, transportation planning, determination of series size in production, shift-schedules, frequency assignment in telecommunication, gate distribution in the aviation industry and determining the consistency of software releases.

To avoid any confusion, the simplex method, which can be used for normal linear programming problems, is not enough for solving integer linear programming problems. There are also no dual integer linear programming models and there are no sensitivity analyses that can be applied to integer linear programming models. In short; most of the common methods for solving linear programming problems, cannot be applied to integer programming.

A concrete example of an integer programming problem is the knapsack problem. In the knapsack problem there is a bag that can carry a maximum amount of kilograms. Then there are a few items that you want to fit in the bag. Every item has its own weight and its own value. The objective here is to a few items in the bag with the highest possible value possible. The decision problem form of the knapsack problem lies in the question: Can a value of at least X be achieved without exceeding the weight Y. The knapsack problem is a fairly simple and imaginative example of the knapsack problem. Most real life problems are far more complex.

Best Way To Clean Your Surgical Instrument

  • Posted on March 2, 2018 at 11:38 am

Manual cleaning prior to mechanical washing should be kept to a minimum. The most crucial factor is selecting the soap, which should be at a neutral PH level. Never use a soap that is not exclusively designed to be for surgical instruments. The manuel washing part is more used to clean lumens, box locks and serrations.

Don’t Use These Soaps on your Surgical Instruments:
-Kitchen sink soaps
-Laundry soaps
-hand scrub for surgeons
-Iodine soap

Cleaning Surgical Instruments using Ultra Sonic Technology:
The best way you can do to clean your surgical equipment is to use ultra sonic technology. This technology removes bioburden very efficiently and its very safe for instruments. The more time you have the surgical instruments in the ultrasonic cleaner, the more clean they’ll become. Never put manuel instrument cleaning soaps in an ultra sonic cleaner and only use a neutral PH level solution.

How to Rinse your Medical Instruments:
After manual washing or ultrasonic cleaning, rinse the medical instruments with h2o, preferably with distilled water. Dont forget to get rid of residue from your surgical instruments after washing it.

Drying of Surgical Instruments:
To avoid water spots on your surgical tools never allow water to dry on it, which will turn into stains.

Lubrication of Surgical Instruments:
after use hinged surgical instruments need lubrication. A machine applied lubrication works best, or even a spray-on lubricant especially for surgery instruments. The most advised are neutral PH lubricants. Mineral based lubricants can never be used as steam, cannot penetrate mineral oils and instruments will not achieve sterility.

Other Surgical Instrument Tips:
-The temperature of tank solution may improve performance with heated solution.
-When you can see bioburden in the tank you should change it. For best results change it daily.
-The longer the surgical instruments are left in the better.
-Do not overload ultrasonic cleaner as this does away with its cleaning efficiency.
-Surgical instruments always are in the open position when placed in the ultrasonic cleaner.
