NEIGHBORHOODS

I think that it is great for neighbors to keep other neighbors informed of what is going on in our neighborhood.

Introduktion
Du kan börjat på en ny karriär, eller du kan överväga ett byte av anställning, eller faktiskt vara ute efter för att starta ett företag i undersökningen. Förhoppningsvis kommer kommer svaren på de frågor du måste fråga att finnas i denna artikel.

Startar i Undersökningen
För de läsare som har ingen utredning bakgrund alls, rekommenderar vi ett antal samtidiga metoder.

Först och främst söka utbildning. Institutet ger en utmärkt online Foundation privata utredning kurs samt olika nivåer av undersökande utbildning (staden och gillen kvalifikationer och seminarier), liksom andra organisationer, föreningar och företag, men undersökande utbildning inte behöver, och bör inte, vara allt som sker.

En blivande utredare bör överväga juridisk utbildning och/eller utbildning i verksamheten. Båda områdena komplettera utbildningen som en utredare behöver, och kommer att lägga till personliga färdigheter oberoende av din framgång i att söka arbete på detta område. Lokala högskolor kan konsulteras om denna form av utbildning.

Finansiering av utbildning kan hittas genom karriär utveckling lånefaciliteter, lokal myndighet finansiering, och genom att arbeta på andra jobb medan utbildning genomförs.

För det andra, börja komponera din meritförteckning. Anteckna varje prestation, både när det gäller akademiska kvalifikationer och erfarenhet. Bli inte frestad att överdriva – hålla innehållet enkelt att läsa, och absolut korrekt. Tänk på att din blivande arbetsgivare, bättre än någon annan, kommer att kunna kontrollera dess riktighet...

Chicago Conservation Corps (C3) Environmental Leadership Training

The Chicago Conservation Corps (C3), a program of the Peggy Notebaert Nature Museum, provides support (in the form of training and funding) for Chicago residents who are interested in leading community-based environmental service projects. Since 2006, nearly 600 Chicagoans have participated in our ~20-hour training and led capstone projects. We’re proud of the diversity in our program; our volunteers represent 48 of the 50 wards.

Spring 2015 Environmental Leadership Training Series

The Chicago Conservation Corps is now recruiting for its Spring 2015 Environmental Leadership Training Series. During the training, you'll learn from community and environmental leaders about urban environmental challenges and opportunities for change; then you'll lead a sustainability service project in your community with C3 support and resources.

To participate in the training course, you must be an adult Chicago resident and attend one of the orientations listed below. The course will be held at C3’s home, the Peggy Notebaert Nature Museum, 2430 N. Cannon, Wednesdays, April 29 through May 27, 5:30-9:00 p.m. A $75 fee covers course participation and project support. Financial assistance is available upon request.

Attend an orientation to learn more; visit www.naturemuseum.org/c3 or call 773-755-5100 x5039 to reserve a space.

-Tuesday, April 14, noon to 1 p.m., Chicago Department of Transportation, 30 N. LaSalle, 11th Floor
-Wednesday, April 15, 6 to 7 p.m., Peggy Notebaert Nature Museum, 2430 N. Cannon Dr.

Dyman & Associates Risk Management Projects: New Chip can Turn Smartphone into 3D Scanner

With 3D printers all but widely-known now, it only remains to have an accurate and portable 3D scanner to practically produce anything on-the-go. The current 3D scanners are all bulky and very expensive but we may soon have that functionality installed in our smartphones.

With 3D printers all but widely-known now, it only remains to have an accurate and portable 3D scanner to practically produce anything on-the-go. The current 3D scanners are all bulky and very expensive but we may soon have that functionality installed in our smartphones.

A team of CalTech researchers led by Ali Hajimiri has designed a small camera chip that can enable a smartphone to do an accurate 3D scan of an object.

The tiny silicon chip called nanophotonic coherent imager (NCI) only measures one millimeter square and can conveniently be placed within smartphones. It uses a type of Light Detection and Ranging (LIDAR) technology in capturing an item's width, depth and height. Basically, a laser is shined on the object so the light waves that bounce off of it can serve as guide for the imager when capturing the measurement data.

The technology used on the chip is further explained by Caltech:

According to Dyman & Associates Risk Management Projects (http://dymanassociatesprojects.com), LIDAR technology is commonly used in self-driving cars, robots and precision missile systems due to its effectiveness in identifying locations and objects. Although the concept of LIDAR is not that new, their idea of having "an array of tiny LIDARs on our coherent imager can simultaneously image different parts of an object without the need for any mechanical movement" is a novel one...

RBC’s commitment to water conservation on display as it marks five year anniversary at prestigious flower show

LONDON, December 2, 2014 – Garden designer Matthew Wilson grew up with a love for the countryside, wildlife and the outdoors and realized at an early age the importance that fresh water had in preserving the natural world. Now, as Managing Director and principal designer at Clifton Nurseries in London, he combines these early interests when creating urban gardens underpinned by a commitment to conserving water. Using his breadth of experience in sustainable garden design, Mr. Wilson is partnering with Royal Bank of Canada (RBC), to design the “Royal Bank of Canada Garden” at the RHS Chelsea Flower Show next year (19 – 23 May 2015), the fifth year in a row RBC has presented a garden at this, the most prestigious event in the horticultural calendar.

The surprising discovery of "square ice" which forms at room temperature was made by an international team of researchers last week.

The study was published in Nature by a team of scientists from UK and Germany led by Andre Geim of University of Manchester and G. Algara-Siller of University of Ulm. The accompanying review article was done by Alan Soper of Rutherford Appleton Laboratory in UK.

To study the molecular structure of water inside a transparent nanoscale capillary, the team used electron microscopy. This enabled them to view individual water molecules, especially because the nano-capillary was created from graphene which was one atom thick and would not impair the electron imaging. Graphene was also chosen because it has unusual properties like conducting electricity and extreme strength. It's a 2D form of carbon that once rolled up in cylinders will form a carbon nanotube, a material, which according to The Koyal Group Info Mag, is a subject of further study because of its unusual strength.

The scientists themselves were admittedly surprised at finding out that small square-shaped ice crystals formed at room temperature where the graphene capillaries are narrow (3 atomic layers of water at most). The water molecules formed into square lattices arranged in neat rows -- an arrangement that is uncharacteristic for the element that is known for forming consistent triangular structures inside regular ice. This discovery ( http://koyalgroupinfomag.com/blog/ ) may just be the first example of water behavior in nanostructure.

The Koyal Group Info Mag ( http://koyalgroupinfomag.com/ ) reports that scientists have been trying to understand for decades how water structure is affected when it is confined in narrow channels. It is only now that this becomes possible through computer simulations, but even with those, the results they get do not agree with each other.

The team is also trying to determine how common this square ice actually is by using computer simulations. And from what they've learned, if the water layer is thin enough, it could create a square ice regardless of the chemical properties of the nanopore's walls where it is confined. Since there is water practically everywhere -- in microscopic pores and monolayers on surfaces -- it is likely that square ice is actually very common in nature.

Aside from its more practical applications in water distillation, desalination and filtration, their finding also allows for a better understanding of how water behave at a molecular scale which is important in nanotechnology work.
