From Fingerprint Picking, Possible Advanced Technology Development Such As Doping Inspection

David A of the English yeast of University of East Anglia ,as for Russell professor, with fingerprint picking, detailed health state and the like of the person in question the research dissertation ““Intelligent” Fingerprinting regarding diagnostic possible new technology: The announcement of Simultaneous Identification of Drug Metabolites and Individuals with Antibody-Functionalized Nanoparticles” it did. It is published to the scientific journal “Angewandte Chemie” just published.

Whether or not in the same research which was advanced by the researcher of University of East Anglia and the research team which consists of the scientist of English (King's College), as an early stage, the subject the smoker it succeeds in distinguishing accurately, due to fingerprint picking. When the nicotine metabolite is inspected from the sweat which comes in contact with the fingerprint surface the system which reacts is developed, assumes that distinction of the smoker/the non smoker was actualized easily.

Although it could use the gold nano- particle which sets the antibody which is connected with ‘intelligence’, as for Russell professor, the antibody which is connected with another substance is used to the same distinction, if is, when just does fingerprint picking, acquisition of the colorful information regarding the health state of the person in question becomes possible, it has explained. For example, because it is possible, to keep distinguishing the information to discernment solution whether the medicine is used, whether alcohol was drunk, whether it took in the food of specification, you say that it is used even in doping inspection and alcoholic detection and the like.

The Impact of Technology on the Developing Child

Reminiscing about the good old days when we were growing up is a memory trip well worth taking, when trying to understand the issues facing the children of today. A mere 20 years ago, children used to play outside all day, riding bikes, playing sports and building forts. Masters of imaginary games, children of the past created their own form of play that didn't require costly equipment or parental supervision. Children of the past moved... a lot, and their sensory world was nature based and simple. In the past, family time was often spent doing chores, and children had expectations to meet on a daily basis. The dining room table was a central place where families came together to eat and talk about their day, and after dinner became the center for baking, crafts and homework.

Today's families are different. Technology's impact on the 21st century family is fracturing its very foundation, and causing a disintegration of core values that long ago were what held families together. Juggling work, home and community lives, parents now rely heavily on communication, information and transportation technology to make their lives faster and more efficient. Entertainment technology (TV, internet, videogames, iPods) has advanced so rapidly, that families have scarcely noticed the significant impact and changes to their family structure and lifestyles. A 2010 Kaiser Foundation study showed that elementary aged children use on average 8 hours per day of entertainment technology, 75% of these children have TV's in their bedrooms, and 50% of North American homes have the TV on all day. Add emails, cell phones, internet surfing, and chat lines, and we begin to see the pervasive aspects of technology on our home lives and family milieu. Gone is dining room table conversation, replaced by the "big screen" and take out. Children now rely on technology for the majority of their play, grossly limiting challenges to their creativity and imaginations, as well as limiting necessary challenges to their bodies to achieve optimal sensory and motor development. Sedentary bodies bombarded with chaotic sensory stimulation, are resulting in delays in attaining child developmental milestones, with subsequent impact on basic foundation skills for achieving literacy. Hard wired for high speed, today's young are entering school struggling with self regulation and attention skills necessary for learning, eventually becoming significant behavior management problems for teachers in the classroom.

So what is the impact of technology on the developing child? Children's developing sensory and motor systems have biologically not evolved to accommodate this sedentary, yet frenzied and chaotic nature of today's technology. The impact of rapidly advancing technology on the developing child has seen an increase of physical, psychological and behavior disorders that the health and education systems are just beginning to detect, much less understand. Child obesity and diabetes are now national epidemics in both Canada and the US. Diagnoses of ADHD, autism, coordination disorder, sensory processing disorder, anxiety, depression, and sleep disorders can be causally linked to technology overuse, and are increasing at an alarming rate. An urgent closer look at the critical factors for meeting developmental milestones, and the subsequent impact of technology on those factors, would assist parents, teachers and health professionals to better understand the complexities of this issue, and help create effective strategies to reduce technology use. The three critical factors for healthy physical and psychological child development are movement, touch and connection to other humans. Movement, touch and connection are forms of essential sensory input that are integral for the eventual development of a child's motor and attachment systems. When movement, touch and connection are deprived, devastating consequences occur.

Young children require 3-4 hours per day of active rough and tumble play to achieve adequate sensory stimulation to their vestibular, proprioceptive and tactile systems for normal development. The critical period for attachment development is 0-7 months, where the infant-parent bond is best facilitated by close contact with the primary parent, and lots of eye contact. These types of sensory inputs ensure normal development of posture, bilateral coordination, optimal arousal states and self regulation necessary for achieving foundation skills for eventual school entry. Infants with low tone, toddlers failing to reach motor milestones, and children who are unable to pay attention or achieve basic foundation skills for literacy, are frequent visitors to pediatric physiotherapy and occupational therapy clinics. The use of safety restraint devices such as infant bucket seats and toddler carrying packs and strollers, have further limited movement, touch and connection, as have TV and videogame overuse. Many of today's parents perceive outdoor play is 'unsafe', further limiting essential developmental components usually attained in outdoor rough and tumble play. Dr. Ashley Montagu, who has extensively studied the developing tactile sensory system, reports that when infants are deprived of human connection and touch, they fail to thrive and many eventually die. Dr. Montagu states that touch deprived infants develop into toddlers who exhibit excessive agitation and anxiety, and may become depressed by early childhood.

As children are connecting more and more to technology, society is seeing a disconnect from themselves, others and nature. As little children develop and form their identities, they often are incapable of discerning whether they are the "killing machine" seen on TV and in videogames, or just a shy and lonely little kid in need of a friend. TV and videogame addiction is causing an irreversible worldwide epidemic of mental and physical health disorders, yet we all find excuses to continue. Where 100 years ago we needed to move to survive, we are now under the assumption we need technology to survive. The catch is that technology is killing what we love the most...connection with other human beings. The critical period for attachment formation is 0 - 7 months of age. Attachment or connection is the formation of a primary bond between the developing infant and parent, and is integral to that developing child's sense of security and safety. Healthy attachment formation results in a happy and calm child. Disruption or neglect of primary attachment results in an anxious and agitated child. Family over use of technology is gravely affecting not only early attachment formation, but also impacting negatively on child psychological and behavioral health.

Further analysis of the impact of technology on the developing child indicates that while the vestibular, proprioceptive, tactile and attachment systems are under stimulated, the visual and auditory sensory systems are in "overload". This sensory imbalance creates huge problems in overall neurological development, as the brain's anatomy, chemistry and pathways become permanently altered and impaired. Young children who are exposed to violence through TV and videogames are in a high state of adrenalin and stress, as the body does not know that what they are watching is not real. Children who overuse technology report persistent body sensations of overall "shaking", increased breathing and heart rate, and a general state of "unease". This can best be described as a persistent hypervigalent sensory system, still "on alert" for the oncoming assault from videogame characters. While the long term effects of this chronic state of stress in the developing child are unknown, we do know that chronic stress in adults results in a weakened immune system and a variety of serious diseases and disorders. Prolonged visual fixation on a fixed distance, two dimensional screen grossly limits ocular development necessary for eventual printing and reading. Consider the difference between visual location on a variety of different shaped and sized objects in the near and far distance (such as practiced in outdoor play), as opposed to looking at a fixed distance glowing screen. This rapid intensity, frequency and duration of visual and auditory stimulation results in a "hard wiring" of the child's sensory system for high speed, with subsequent devastating effects on a child's ability to imagine, attend and focus on academic tasks. Dr. Dimitri Christakis found that each hour of TV watched daily between the ages of 0 and 7 years equated to a 10% increase in attention problems by age seven years.

In 2001 the American Academy of Pediatrics issued a policy statement recommending that children less than two years of age should not use any technology, yet toddlers 0 to 2 years of age average 2.2 hours of TV per day. The Academy further recommended that children older than two should restrict usage to one hour per day if they have any physical, psychological or behavioral problems, and two hours per day maximum if they don't, yet parents of elementary children are allowing 8 hours per day. France has gone so far as to eliminate all "baby TV" due to the detrimental effects on child development. How can parents continue to live in a world where they know what is bad for their children, yet do nothing to help them? It appears that today's families have been pulled into the "Virtual Reality Dream", where everyone believes that life is something that requires an escape. The immediate gratification received from ongoing use of TV, videogame and internet technology, has replaced the desire for human connection.

It's important to come together as parents, teachers and therapists to help society "wake up" and see the devastating effects technology is having not only on our child's physical, psychological and behavioral health, but also on their ability to learn and sustain personal and family relationships. While technology is a train that will continually move forward, knowledge regarding its detrimental effects, and action taken toward balancing the use of technology with exercise and family time, will work toward sustaining our children, as well as saving our world. While no one can argue the benefits of advanced technology in today's world, connection to these devices may have resulted in a disconnection from what society should value most, children. Rather than hugging, playing, rough housing, and conversing with children, parents are increasingly resorting to providing their children with more videogames, TV's in the car, and the latest iPods and cell phone devices, creating a deep and widening chasm between parent and child.

Polyureas - Advanced Technology Industrial Floor Coatings

Polyures are a new breed of concrete coatings with extraordinary benefits when properly applied with the highest quality blends. They are being applied by a small but growing network of highly skilled flooring entrepreneurs around the country. The highest quality polyureas are not massed produced. They require an investment in specific equipment and mastery of the application system.

The Application System

The first step is to acquire high production concrete grinding equipment. These are high torque grinders that cut the concrete easily. They have specialized dustless vacuum systems minimizing airborne dust. Surface preparation is critical to successful application. High spots throughout the floor are leveled, including along expansion joints, which typically are higher than most areas of the floor. Polyureas are not a self leveling product like epoxy. Epoxies tend to have varied thickness throughout the floor. Polyureas perform best with a smooth level surface resulting with a consistent coating thickness.

Once the floor is ground smooth, cracks and damaged areas, including expansion joints, are repaired with a filler compatible with the coatings. These repair products are solvent free, do not shrink, are flexible and impact resistant.

Once the floor is ground and cracks, expansion joints and damaged areas repaired, the floor can be coated. Polyureas are fast curing, avoiding downtime between repair and application.


  1. Increased Adhesion
  2. Grinding opens the pores of the surface allowing the first coat of the polyurea to soak into the concrete. This is typically a coat of approximately 4-5 mils thick. There are no solvents and therefore no shrinkage. The second coat is 11-12 mils thick. The combined coats become part of the floor capping off moisture pressure.
  3. Delamination Resistant
  4. Polyurea ingredients are high quality and expensive to blend. The cross linking strength is extraordinary and will not break down due to efflorescence in the concrete. The ability to soak into the surface means the coating is part of the floor, not stuck to the surface. In most cases the concrete will break before the coating comes off.
  5. Bacteria Resistant
  6. The highest quality polyureas are engineered to resist scratching. Micro scratches that do appear, have straight edges, not frayed. A straight edge will not harbor dirt and trap moisture that causes bacteria growth. Frayed micro scratches trap moisture and dirt creating bacteria growth and making floor difficult to keep clean.
  7. Floor Types
  8. Polyureas are excellent for all concrete flooring. They are applied with exceptional performance for all industrial floor types including, warehouses, laboratories, distribution centers, restaurants, retail stores, dog kennels and medical facilities.
  9. Low Maintenance
  10. Being scratch proof prevents dirt buildup. Floors are easy to clean with neoprine squeegees and look great for years. If they do start to fade, they can be lightly sanded, and a single, fast curing new coat can be applied. Service can be restored the following day.

Shellac and Gelish Manicures: Advanced Technology for Long Lasting Manicures

There's two new fingernail polishes on the market generating a lot of buzz. Shellac and Gelish have formulas that outlast traditional nail polish and have brought new business to nail salons.

About Shellac

Shellac is made by Creative Nail Designs. With its patented technology, CND has created a nail polish that gives you two weeks of chip-free nails. Your nails will look like you just walked out of a salon for at least 14 weeks. Some Shellac fans say it can last even longer with good care of the manicure. The difference in this polish lies in the formula and application. The polish is considered a hybrid of regular nail polish and gel nail polish, making it stronger and longer lasting. The polish is set by holder your fingers under a special UV lamp for a few seconds after each layer is applied. To remove the Shellac polish you do need to visit your salon as it can't be removed at home.

About Gelish

Gelish nail polish is made by Hand and Nail Harmony. The company's website promises three weeks of chip-free nails. Gelish is formulated with a gel and color pigments and is applied much the same as Shellac with setting by UV lamps. Gelish does offer more than twice as many colors than what Shellac offers.

Maintaining Your 2 to 3 Week Manicure

Whether you opt for Gelish or Shellac, you will need to maintain your nails and be conscious of how you use your nails to get the full benefits of the 2 to 3 week chip free manicure. With Shellac it's highly recommended that you also use CND's Solar Oil to moisturize your nails daily. You also don't want to soak your hands in water or cleaning products for long periods of time. And don't put stress on your nails by using them as tools. If your nail breaks, then you will also get a crack in the polish.

Getting a Shellac or Gelish Manicure

Both companies only offer their nail polish systems to specially trained licensed nail technicians. So this isn't a manicure you can do at home. You have to go to a nail salon to get the polish applied and have it removed. Both the CND and Hand and Nail Harmony websites have search features that allow you to find a salon near you offering the company's product. You do want to go to one of these recommended salons. It takes training and experience with the products to apply it correctly. Nail technicians not trained in either Shellac or Gelish may not apply it correctly and you won't have a chip free shiny manicure that lasts longer than a manicure that uses regular nail polish.

Are Customers Getting Actual Benefits From the Advanced Technology in Vornado AQS?

When it comes to utilizing the web as an advertising tool, the successful Vornado Air company from Kansas doesn't do much that sets itself apart. Based on my knowledge, I'd even say Vornado likely does less.

What Vornado does which is the same as pretty much everyone, is Vornado lists features and benefits which it thinks will encourage you to buy the product. Yet, that's what company does. (Except for the companies that make things up. Another topic for another time.)

As Vornado made the commitment to being a serious presence in home air purifiers, it based it's strategy on one large thing it would do better than competitors. The intended outcome would be to instantly giving the company a leg up in the emerging air purifier market.

What was this one concept that Vornado wanted to use to compete with it's Vornado AQS? Basically Vornado always approached value to mean that you give the highest quality and best performing product you could in one single model. The strategy was to hold nothing back on pushing through the best technology available. Then you take that technology and make it work to attack the nagging issues customers had with the old air purifiers you'd perhaps see at the homes of older relatives who smoked.

Vornado AQS was designed to run quieter using advanced three-speed technology. (One user recalled that it sounded like a home computer on idle in the lowest speed.)

Vornado also meant to grab a larger area using advanced electrostatic technology and circulation methods. The result in Vornado AQS is an effective room reach of about 325 square feet.

In doing these two things, Vornado wanted to take the most common customer complaints about air purifiers: that they are really loud and that they really don't work, and overcome those complaints.

So how does the AQS perform? What are the customers saying in their assessments? Keep in mind that Vornado places great importance in word of mouth to both develop and then sell it's products. The Reviews not only matter. The Reviews are everything.

Well, performance ratings are overwhelmingly positive on a statistical basis. Performance in this case refers to the Vornado AQS creating a room environment you can really feel. An environment where the result you have is greater comfort and easier breathing.

One customer in his 60's from Delaware got his Vornado purifier from Home Depot. He had a prior history with the company and had appreciated the experiences he had with his space heaters and fans. He noted a cleaner and fresher breathing environment in his targeted room from day 1. He said the AQS would be especially valuable in the winter time, or if you have pets.

On the other side of the net, an Amazon customer made an interesting point about the air circulation methods of the AQS. He felt that since the air purifier doesn't force like the older air purifiers, that odor removal was compromised.

In fact, Vornado does use a different approach to air gathering more is based more on what the company calls "advanced vortex technology" coupled with electrostatic pull. Together, these two forces grab and filter the air. It is hard to conclude an observation like the one from this customer is totally without merit.

Advanced Technology for Business Mobile Phones

Everyday we see a further advance in the technology and science of mobile phones. Just when we have finished shaking our heads at the last amazing breakthrough, a new innovation comes onto the market - now designers tend to be focusing their efforts on data capture solutions and the business world. How can remote workers be managed cost effectively? How can real time information be transferred within business processes even faster?

Streamlining remote working

More and more businesses employees are finding they are working remotely rather than at one set station. In order to deal with changes and structure effective mobile workforce management, the business mobile phone has been essential in creating an immediate form of communication between remote worker and his base management. It also allows the worker to communicate more effectively with the client. If there is a need for delays or spontaneous meetings, the mobile phone is streamlining business processes, enhancing customer interaction and ultimately increasing efficiency and productivity.

The problem has always been transferring complex information real-time from a workforce working remotely to the business hub. Any delay (i.e. waiting for the employee to return to base; create and the information on another application such as a laptop;) could lead to missed sales opportunities; information just being lost because it could not be retained appropriately; or customer relations suffering.

Data capture solutions for the work environment

Along with the big names such as Nokia, Vodaphone Blackberry and Orange, esay have taken the problem data capture in the business world and produced the Workmobile which apart from answering the above problems it could well lead to reducing overheads for businesses. For instance - no need for those heavy laptops anymore!

Workmobile works with all other big mobile phone companies and offers a streamlined data capture solution. It allows the business manager to create bespoke forms which are related to the information which is needed within any Job role. The employee working remotely is able to bring up the form on his mobile phone (any make of mobile phone) and immediately fill in the appropriate details and information as he receives them. When submitted his head office receives them in seconds and can act on them straight away.

This could have an enormous effect on business processes and current methods. It could be used in the private and public sector for such work as questionnaires, petitions, customer transactions, lead generation, and credit applications. The feeling is it could even have an effect in the medical world as well. If you take a scenario where an employee becomes unwell while working abroad, validation of insurance which is always needed before treatment could be forwarded in real time.

It must also mean processes themselves will become more effective and efficient. The employee would not be under so much pressure to retain information until he can forward the information through another application; bigger and more expensive hardware could take more of a backseat, (so reducing costs) and the employee is more free to create further positive production.
