Created by noted American director, producer, and writer Vince Gilligan, Breaking Bad is a popular neo-western crime drama series that made science, particularly chemistry, cool again. The series’ main protagonist, Walter White, goes from a meek, mild, and severely underpaid high school chemistry teacher to a criminal chemical genius worth millions.
Although following in Walter White’s fictional footsteps will probably land you in jail in real life ? so don’t try this at home ? his expert knowledge of chemistry remains admirable and even inspiring. If anything, Breaking Bad and other shows like it give glimpses into the exciting careers of chemists, scientists, and lab technicians. Although TV portrayals are rarely what the seem, a career in science is well worth the hype.

A challenge to make revisions and suggestions to the report that your boss asked you to look over.

No matter the industry, many companies that venture out to trade shows will end up setting up a booth of sorts where they can display marketing materials. From banners and brochures to business cards and informational pamphlets, many companies rely on those working in the printing industry and graphic designers to produce their marketing materials. But just how much do companies tend to spend on such materials? Are printed marketing materials like flyers and brochures beneficial? Let’s find out
For starters, it’s estimated that the typical company will spend nearly 31.6 percent of its marketing budget on exhibits and events. Additionally, studies have found that more than $24
Data centers are starting to change in many ways, as advances in technology are made. For example, as more individuals start to use cloud services to store all their data, these services can grow to over $180 billion a year. This can affect everything, from data rack products, to a thermal containment system. Here are some of the ways data centers are being affected.
Centers Are Becoming Outdated
Before all the recent changes in technology, data centers were not as outdated, and would last a long time before having to undergo changes or being rebuilt. Most data centers are built to last anywhere from nine to ten years. However, now data centers that are seven years are considered to be out of date. This can be costly, as everything from Continue Reading No Comments
Currently, the world’s population consists of approximately 6.5 billion people. Within the next 4 decades, however, this population is expected to increase by 50% to over 9 billion people. As a result, it is even more vital to engage in marketing analytics and demographic reporting in order to meet the demands of the world’s increasing population.
How Geospatial Data Is Collected
Currently, there are approximately 30 GPS satellites circling the Earth. At any given time, at least 24 of these are active. There are spares available just in case of malfunctions.
These satellites travel at 7,000 miles per hour at 12,500 miles above the planet. It takes these satellites 12 hours to go around the world once. It’s interesting to note that a GPS receiver is able to know the current t
Printed circuit boards are valuable commodities, used for a variety of different purposes in this day and age. The revenue of PCBs in 2014 alone was around $44 billion. The industry itself was valued at $7.1 billion in 1995, just 50 years after it started — and by 2000, it was worth $10 billion, rising to $60 billion worldwide in 2012. The demand for PCBs often requires mass production, as they’re often ordered in batches. Even low volume PCB assembly can require the production of dozens of PCBs. While PCBs were once made by hand, machine assembly has become favored in more recent years. This has led to the concern that there could be a drop in quality — while in fact, PCBs ma
The actual design and plan of a new construction project can be just as time consuming, if not more, than the actual build of the project. There are often many details and considerations when it comes to a building project. Take building a new road for example. Where will drivers drive in the meantime to get around the city? How will construction workers get from one location to the job site, without roads? How do you build new roads over waterways? These are all considerations that need to be decided before beginning a new road project.
Temporary road structures
One of the most common ways to provide temporary commuting routes is with temporary road structures. This could be in the form of a quickly assembled bridge to go over waterways or it could be in the form of
