Researching the Way That Utilities Are Regulated

I have been studying about the way that Electricity and other utilities are regulated in this country. Of course every one needs power and they want to get it at the lowest price possible. However in most states there is one company which has a local monopoly over the power grid. Here in North Carolina Duke Power has a deathgrip over most of the state. There is at least one other power company, Carolina Power and Light which has smaller territories in the mountains. I think Texas is the only state with an open market. At choosetexaspower.org you can go and read about the laws the. Continue reading

Texas Soon to Be Leading Alternative Energy

Alternative energy is an energy source that is produced without consuming a product. The sun is dying slowly, but because it has a shelf life of several million years we can yet ignore this. Renewable energy is in vogue. Given the high oil prices, growing energy demand in Asia and the doubts about the security of energy supplies have contributed – the most recent example is the dispute between Russia and Ukraine over gas supplies. A comprehensive source of energy needs in the Americas only by wind, solar and hydroelectric power is difficult to imagine, but may in the not too distant future a reality. A key criterion is the constructive research, especially by the Federal Government.

A series of regulations, policies and laws around the world support the promotion of research and development of new energy sources. Continue reading

Finding a New Energy Company Was Easy

When my husband got into an argument with a customer service rep for our electric company, I was just as upset as he was. He had simply called in to get some answers about a recent bill, and the person was extremely unprofessional. Since the questions were not answered to his satisfaction, he told her that we would look into the different energy providers in Texas and find a company that would be happy to do business with us. I went online that same day, prepared to look at the different websites of the energy providers in our area.

I did a quick search, and I was surprised to see that there is already a website that has all of the information for each of the providers in Texas. Even better, I was able to put in our zip code and get just the providers that service our area. Continue reading

Why Do You Need a VPS

When I first heard the words “Virtual Private Server Hosting“, my eyes immediately glazed over and my mind went on auto pilot, as it often does when I encounter anything that I deem even remotely complicated or too technical. It wasn’t until I did a little research on the subject that I realized this is a very good thing and not too complicated to understand after all. The official definition for a virtual private server is: A virtual private server (VPS, also referred to as Virtual Dedicated Server or VDS) is a method of splitting a server. Each virtual server can run its own full-fledged operating system server can be independently rebooted.The practice of partitioning a single server so that it appears as multiple servers has long been common practice in mainframe computers but has seen a resurgence lately with the development of virtualization software and technologies for other architectures.

Let’s start with a simple break down of what that actually means. A private server is just that, private. It’s kind of like taking a taxi cab instead of a city bus. It’s a secure way to run programs live on the internet in a secure environment. Continue reading

A Frozen Coil Halted My AC Unit

When I first moved into my house, my dad came over to make sure that everything was working properly. I am his only daughter, so I figured that he would end up doing that. I was also very thankful, because I really didn’t know how to do a lot of those things myself. He wanted to make sure that the air conditioning and furnace were working properly too, but the AC unit was not working as it should. He contacted a company that handles AC repair in Essex County NJ, one that he has used for his own AC unit at my folks’ house. Continue reading

I Needed a VPS Windows Hosting Service

I knew that I had found the right VPS Windows hosting when I started reading about Winity. I had been looking for a company that provides this service, and everything I Read about Winity indicated that they are the ones. I really like their website a good bit because it answered all of the questions I had about them. It is obvious that they put customer service as well as satisfaction at the top of their priority list. While I was concerned about price, customer service was at the top of my priority list as well.

Pricing did come a close second though. I wanted a host that was not going to be more than what I could budget for this. I am just starting out in business, so my budget is tighter than most others. This is something that I absolutely needed though, and the price was well within my budgeted means. Continue reading

Getting Peace of Mind Through Security

There is no doubt that safety is important, as it is a fundamental part of living. Even before society formed, it was natural to find protection from potential predators or sources of harm. The bottom line is that while we may be able to fight back against many threats, avoiding them altogether is always preferable and sometimes even easier to implement. ADT home security understands this, which is why the protection starts with the fact that a simple ADT sticker or logo can scare off people who are thinking about trying to break in or rob your house.

Of course it is not going to perfectly repel everyone, as some people simply cannot be stopped from doing something silly. For those that do try to get in, the sensors and alarms will handle them by alerting the support center that is monitored by trained ADT staff 24/7. They know the best way to handle any problems, so can forward information to the appropriate authorities with reliable accuracy and efficiency. Continue reading

Started to Plan the Lake Cottage

I am going to do some home work before I start on the house. For now I am thinking that I might clear off a little part of the land and pave a little pad on which to park a camper trailer. That is not ideal, but a camper trailer is adequate for what I have in mind. I would have electricity hooked up to it and I could keep the beer cold and have a comfortable place to lay your head when you are not fishing. If you click here you can figure out which power companies are available in the place which you are looking for, but I am not really sure that any of them is going to be in a great big hurry to hook the power up here.

There are big high tension lines in the area, but this is on the opposite side of the lake from most of the places that have power. So it is not like they would run a line from a place that is across the street or next door. It is probably close to a quarter of a mile to the main road where there is a little country store. At any rate I need to get them to hook the power up, but there is not a lot in it for them. In fact I might be able to make do with other means if I needed to do it. For example you could get a natural gas tank and use that for heating, cooking and even running the appliances. I figure that I could get a small efficient refrigerator, the type that you get on a motor home. Those can be set up to run on what you have available and you can use it any way you like.

Let’s Be Patient with Our Tech Support

together A cable box thatI’ve had the pleasure of being a Comcast Cable TV customer for a couple of years now and I have to say the number of complaints that I hear against the service seem kind of absurd to me. I’ve not yet had a single problem in my area – I don’t know if that is a reflection of Comcast itself or if the cable infrastructure here is just better than average, as I am sure that has a lot to do with the quality that people have. I do know that many cable lines are in dire need of servicing as a former employee of one of the cable providers.m

Now that I have your attention I hope you don’t mind that I use this moment to make a plea of empathy to you readers. When you call into tech support, please realize that those techs are not at fault for your loss of service or whatever the problem might be. Often it is hardware or something more physical in the lines, nodes or what have you. Continue reading

Getting Faster Internet Connections at Home

Those interested in keeping up to date with the latest in technology have been waiting for fiber internet to come to their area. The process of getting it in your immediate area has taken quite a while but the payoff is worth it to many. This type of service is now locally available. It is in demand because it is thought of widely as the fastest internet connection available to consumers at this point. Now that fiber internet for tennessee is a reality, people can begin to sign up for installation.

As we become more reliant on technology, we have seen our need for a fast internet connection increase. It was acceptable before to have a DSL or a cable internet connection, anything beyond slow dial-up, and it was considered to be fast. Continue reading

Just Got Down Here in Birmingham,Alabama

In fact I am living a bit Northeast of Birmingham in a suburb called Trussville. It is convenient to the job that I have been transferred to. Right now I am trying to get ready for to wife and kids, who really are not happy about leaving North Carolina. They were pretty happy living in Cary and Becky had a good job with the Wake County school system. Right now I am waiting on the guy with the trussville adt to set up the alarm in this big old house I bought. We still have to sell the house in North Carolina, but that is going to wait for the kids and Becky to finish the school year. We might even rent it out, because that would be rather easy it appears. In fact there might be a way that we could sell the land under the house and move the house to a new location.

That is because the place where we live now is becoming a commercial area and there is a huge amount of traffic on the street where we live. It is a rather large corner lot and so it would be ideal for something like aservice station or a little convenience store or perhaps a restaurant. We would definitely be willing to talk to anyone who wanted to use the land for whatever purpose. We just need to get the house sold, because we can not afford to own two houses. This one was very inexpensive for the size of it. At least it is a lot cheaper than a house like this would have been in Cary. I need to do some work to it, but it is not as though the place is going to fall down on top of me or anything.

What must be the value of r for the astronauts to weigh 1/4 of their earth weight?

  1. Suppose the surface (radius = r) of a cylindrical space station is rotating at 23.1 m/s to provide artificial gravity. What must be the value of r for the astronauts to weigh 1/4 of their earth weight?

    Answer by Earth Man
    Answer –> 217.6 m


    v = 23.1 m/s
    a = 2.4525 m/s^2 (25% of 9.81 m/s^2 Earth gravity)

    Original equation is:

    a = v^2 / r

    Solve for r:

    r = v^2 / a

    With values:

    r = (23.1 m/s)^2 / (2.4525 m/s^2)

    r = (533.61 m^2/s^2) / (2.4525 m/s^2)

    r = 217.6 m

  2. A conical paper cup is to have a height of 4 inches. What is the radius r of the cone that will result in a surface area of 6π in^2?

    Answer by poornakumar b
    2 π r h = 6π in^2
    & r = 4″.
    h = 6 π / (2 πX4)
    = 3/4 “.

  3. Please help. I’m trying to find a good quality r/c plane under $ 150. I do not know if I should buy a plane with a nitro engine or an electric engine. Thank you.

    Answer by Jack
    Ive always been a massive fan of nitro engines. but recently changed to electric.
    its so much cheaper in the long run, there is no mess to clean up, no messing arround with engine problems which you will get from small r/c engines and its much safer. starting an engine is dangerious and ive know people to loose fingers from this. ive had a few close shaves myself.
    As long as you have a decent charger you can charge a spare battery in the time it taks you to run the other flat, just wack it on a car battery.
    Only downside is you dont get that awsome noise you get from nitro.
    Hope this helps 😀

Best Commercial Roof Repair Prices

I have a really bad headache right now, and I do not know what is up. It is strange, because I usually do not get headaches. Pretty much ever, unless I like actually physically get hit in the head with something, which has happened a few times in my life. Anyway, I need to focus and not let it distract me because I am trying to hire commercial roof repair in Essex county NJ to fix the roof on this building. It does not seem like it would be that big of a fix. If I knew anything about fixing anything, and I do mean anything, then I might try to fix it myself.

I do not like the quotes that I have been getting thus far though, and so I have been compelled to continue to shop around and call different companies, to see if they can give me a quote that I like better. I don’t know if it will happen, but I guess we will wait and find out. I am not sure how this is going to all pan out. I hope that it works out in my favor. But I do not want to bet on that, and be wrong. I always feel foolish when I am wrong about stuff.

After that, I am going to go on lunch break and go pick up some cheap fast food from around the corner. It is cheap but delicious. It is a local chain and probably the best fast food restaurant that I have ever been to in my life. I mean they have quesadillas and corndogs as side items. It is just nuts. But I guess I have got off track. Need to get back to accomplishing things at my job, so boss doesn’t yell at me.

Something That Actually Works for Weight Loss

When I first started taking Garcinia Cambogia, I didn’t think it would actually work. I didn’t want to take it at first, because it cost money, and I didn’t want to pay for it. It just so happens that one of my friends started taking it, and he gave some to me. He swore up and down that it was a good product and I would greatly benefit from it. I thought he had been taken in and was simply wasting his money, but I wasn’t one to turn down a free gift, so I accepted it. I’m glad I started using it.

The supplement produced some noticeable results in a short amount of time. I looked forward to weighting myself in the morning, because I liked seeing the numbers going down each day. Continue reading

Get More Customers With Social Media Marketing

You will be more successful if you can come up with new and interesting content. People will share something they believe is worth their time or provokes a pleasant reaction. Look at successful campaigns and identify the type of content that people will want to share with their friends on social networks.

You will establish a great impression with your social media marketing if you spend time interviewing important experts from your niche. Make videos of these interviews and present them on YouTube. Customers will appreciate the interesting content, and by associating yourself with these people, you make your company look smart and reliable too. This authenticity only helps you sell your products and services within your niche. It is best to require only a minimum of effort from your customers. If your first contact with a customer is a request for his information or a survey, that customer will probably just leave your website. If the first steps are easy, they will grow into something positive for your company and will stick with it.

If you are using WordPress for your site, be sure to put a Retweet button that is at the top of your posts for your readers to use. This will make it easy for them to pass on your information to others. WordPress has plugins for this, so it will be simple for you to do with huge benefits in the long run. Update your social network profiles when you post new content on your blog. The people who follow you through social media sites will appreciate being notified when you provide fresh, useful content for them. Social media marketing today is one of the tops methods people use to promote their business online. This platform can, however, be confusing for the average business owner. Admittedly, it can be difficult trying to figure out not just how to set up pages, but also how to target potential customers, and stay within budget. This article will guide you in how to effectively set up your campaign to be highly effective in achieving the goals you desire. If you have a business, your customers are usually on a social media site. If you’re not already set up with a profile for your company, what’s stopping you? You can potentially increase your number of customers by targeting your marketing efforts on some of the better-known social network sites. One technique that many social media marketers use is advertising with strange images that have been heavily Photoshopped. It is a very brilliant idea to use attractive images to draw buyers onto your ad. An advertisement to which customers pay attention is one that will be more effective in encouraging them to check out your business. Always test and tweak your content before you make it accessible to the general public. Even post launch evaluations can be a powerful tool to make sure you are getting the most from your efforts. When you do this, you prevent the release of content that can bring down your business and harm your image.

Allow your customers to follow you on a variety of social networks. People are now accustomed to using social media sites every day, so giving them fast access via Twitter, Linkedin or Facebook is a great method to ensure they can access your information instantly when you post. Take time to check out your competition before creating your first Facebook page. A little opposition research will give you a better handle on what works, and what doesn’t, and what has already been done. Your page must be attractive and contain key information in order to succeed.

If you have a tough time with formatting, use a list format for the next article you post on your social networking profiles. A list provides a straightforward, clear structure for both you, the author, and your audience. Numbering the list can also establish priorities and clarify the relative importance of your points. Since many social media users are younger, they will appreciate the effort you put into delivering relevant information in an abbreviated fashion. Interact with your customers, and potential customers, as much as you can. Comment on their blogs, send messages, and communicate via forums. Do anything you can as long as it is appropriate. Avoiding getting into personal discussions with your customers, stick to product or industry related issues only.

Find ways to increase your ability to reach contacts of friends and other users that exist on the social networks. You need to always place the Facebook share icon at the beginning of you posts. Doing so might require a little extra time and effort on your part, but you’ll notice the difference that it makes.

Try using services like Twellow or Tweepi to find customers and followers who are interested in your products or niche. These programs are designed to locate the highest attention lists, and also who runs them. Then, request that the owners add your business to their lists.

Always take the time to look over your Facebook content or Twitter post for errors before you hit the submit button. Keep in mind that it is always important to remain professional. Use abbreviations sparingly when communicating with your customers on Twitter. Your content should look as professional and well-written as possible.

      Beautify Your Eyes with an Eyelash Curler

      Curled hair is appetizing especially when it belongs to a lady. Women could not only curl their head hair. They can as well coil their eyelashes using an eyelash curler. This is a simple looking hand-run gadget being sold now on the Internet. If you have less than perfect lashes, you can still enhance their appearance by curling. Short or long, curly eyelashes look hot and trendy. However, if you want to look hotter, the best thing to do first is to try to grow your natural lash.

      There are many different ways of doing that, including wearing eyelash extensions. If you like being natural and beautiful, you can use simple methods to grow the lashes. When they are longer and thicker, the curler produces wonderful results within a short duration. Some of you are hearing this for the first time and will probably buy one of these gadgets soon.

      Support This Blog By Visiting Sponsor URL with respect to Paf :

      A typical eyelash curler can be made of plastic or metal. The former is a simple gadget, which is less heavy and cheap to buy. It is very appropriate for ladies that are always on the go because it is very convenient to carry and use. The latter is very appropriate for all other women that need to make their lash curly. Metal is durable and it can retain heat and these are two qualities that these gadgets have.

      Still, you can find devices that use battery heat to run and they are very dependable. You do not need to use a hair blow dryer to heat them so they can work effectively. Regardless of the above-implied differences, all curling devices have similar features. First, they all have a frame and a hinge for easy eyelash clamping.

      Second, they have a handle, which you should hold with your hand as you twist the lid. For extra comfort and safety of your eyelid, most curler styles have a padding attached to them. Whenever a pad cannot work any longer, you can easily replace it by first removing the older one. Next, press the new one into the holder. Since most gadgets are sold with replacement cushions, you will not have another shopping task ahead.

      The best curlers have to apply heat as they do their job. The metal ones are very easy to use because they can conduct heat fast while plastic cannot. All you should do is to heat them for about five seconds, clamp the lash as next to the root as you can and hold it there. Then, slither it slowly towards the middle of the lashes and eventually to the tips.

      If you use them properly, metal curlers should work easily and quickly, especially if they use battery power. Although there are many curlers in the marketplace, not all styles are good for you. In fact, some are junks, as they will make your eyelash thinner and weaker. If willing to buy the best eyelash curler, you must be willing to find out other shoppers experiences. Solicit ideas from friends or even the online community before buying.

      You actually might need to become familiar with – Great Ideas About Understanding Cats In The Article Below

      Use short words when you want to express displeasure with your cat. A short ‘no’ will be remembered, even if not always followed. A lot of people think that cats don’t listen to anything, but short word commands are certainly understood by cats, and they will respond to those commands if you are consistent with them.

      There’s nothing like having a pet. There are many kinds of pets, but there’s a special one that has warmed the hearts of many pet owners. Cats are great companions for your home. If you want to care for one, read this article for tips related to caring for cats. If you want a cat that is well-behaved and not prone to biting and scratching, make sure that you do not try to adopt one when it is too young. It takes 12-16 weeks for a kitten to learn proper cat behavior from their mom and all of their siblings.

      In all likelihood, your cat is very important to your household and taking good care of him is quite important to you. Since looking at this piece, you have a better understanding of how to properly care for your cat. Use these tips for a happier cat. If your cat is loved by you then that cat will love you back. When you move your cat from one house to another, be sure to move the cat last. Set up a quiet room with familiar items for the cat. Keep your cat in the room and quiet for a day or two. Visit and feed the cat in the room. After a couple of days, the cat can explore the rest of the house. Happy dogs wag their tail. A cat wagging its tail can have a very different meaning. In cats, wagging of the tail tends to indicate conflict or anxiety. When you hold your cat and he begins to wag his tail, put him down! As was mentioned earlier in this article, cats need a lot of attention and care if you want them to live a happy and healthy life. Make sure to implement the advice mentioned above if you’re considering getting a cat. It is information both you and your cat are sure to benefit from. Cats are constantly grooming themselves, and this is why they rarely need a bath. If your cat gets into something particularly stinky, a bath will not hurt them. If your cat does not like water you might want to wear gloves so that you do not get scratched. You might also want to enlist the help of a friend or family member.

      Cats are one of the most independent pets you can own. However, this doesn’t mean you can simply let them live their lives without caring for them. A lot goes into owning a cat and the following article has some great tips to show you exactly what you need to know. Read on and learn. Feed your cat top quality food. Pay attention to the ingredient list on any food you feed them. Protein needs to be one of the very first items on the list, while fillers like corn and other grains should be avoided. Corn and other such protein-free fillers are things you want to stay well away from. Since cats are carnivorous, they require animal protein to stay in the best health.

Different breeds and bloodlines make an impact on how your new cat looks, behaves, and is cared for. Use this article to find some of the breeds that you find most entertaining.

      There is no need to bathe a cat since they are able to do most of their cleaning by themselves. The only way that you should bathe a cat is if there is something on their coat that has not come off for a good length of time, like oil and chemicals. You can microchip your cat. If you realize your pet is missing, you can log onto a website and see exactly where they are, which means they will be much easier to recover. Cats are said to be very intuitive and sometimes more helpful as companions than even other humans! If you own one, you already know this! Hopefully this article has given you answers to the questions you have about cats and set you straight on important issues. Enjoy your cat for many years to come.

      Encourage your child to play with cats by using toys, not by using their fingers and hands. Choose toys that put distance between the child’s hands and the cat’s teeth and claws. During a vigorous play session, an excited kitten is more likely to accidentally scratch its playmate’s skin. For example, you might use a long wand-type toy with a dangling feather or bell.

        How you approach a psychic reading can make it a worthwhile experience or not. You can set the tone by pointing the reader in the right direction. Preparing before you go to your reading is important.

        People have readings for fun, like at a fair and/or others might use a psychic reading to gain insight for advice making serious life decisions. Approaches to a reading can differ from the attitude of “tell me what you see” to those who have specific questions. Which way is the best approach?

        Preparing questions for a psychic reading will definitely give you more for your money and time. When you prepare before your appointment you are in control of your destiny. For instance, asking a reader to tell you anything is like stopping your car and asking for directions and when asked where are you going, you answer wherever you direct me is similar going to a reading without a prepared direction.

        Even if you are stopping by a booth at a fair you can quickly prepare by thinking of one, two or three areas of your life you wish insight into. One question can take about five minutes to answer without the reader elaborating. If its a 15-minute reading most likely two or three questions be can discussed.

        Most popular questions are about love, money, career and health. Parents often ask about their children and spouses about the other spouse. Others ask about education, travel and also spirituality – karma. Forget asking for lotto numbers. If the reader knew the winning numbers shed be doing something other than working for a living.

        State your question simply. No need to elaborate, but dont play games with the reader. Its waste of your time. Be willing to part with some information about your topic. For instance if you asking about a love interest and the reader asks for her/his name, give it. No need to tell the reader everything about the person, your feelings and thoughts about him or her. Let the reader pick it up psychically.

        Structure your questions to gain as much as possible from the reader. Rather than asking “Will I have love?” say, “I wish to share my life with a love partner. How does that look for me?” The latter lends to a more detailed answer.

        You want to get as much information needed so prioritize before the session and if you have a thirty-minute reading you want the most important issues answered first. Write your questions and the day of prioritize them.

        Near the end of the session you might ask, “Is there anything else for me?” – just in case youre not aware of an important issue at hand or coming up in the future.

        Remember a reading is to gain insight to help you make decisions therefore take control and use it as such.

        Synchronized Swimming

        Synchronized swimming is a form of swimming which combines the sport of swimming with the artistic characteristics of both gymnastics and dance. It could be performed by a solo, a duet, a trio, or more commonly, by a team of swimmers. As its name implies, synchronized swimming involves performing a synchronized routine of complicated and intricate moves in the water while being accompanied by background music.

        Visit Affiliate AD with reference to Bet365 –

        Synchronized swimming requires a lot from its participants. Swimmers that participate in this sport have to have highly advanced swimming skills along with incredible breath control because many maneuvers require the swimmer to be upside down under the water. They also have to be very graceful, flexible, and artistic in the water. Lastly, the swimmers must have an impeccable sense of timing in order for the routine to come out well.

        In both the Olympic Championship and the World Championship events of synchronized swimming, men are not allowed to compete. However, in the US and Canada Championships, male competitors are allowed to participate along with the women. Most of the synchronized swimming championships held in Europe allow male swimmers to compete as well. France even has male only synchronized swimming events. The Mens Cup synchronized swimming championship – a worldwide biannual synchronized swimming event for men – has also been steadily growing over the past years.

        During competition, the participants are required to perform two different routines that will be scored by the judges. The first one is a technical routine while the second one is a free routine. Both of these routines though require the participants to show off their endurance, elegance, and creativity. There are also age group based routines.

        The technical routine also requires the participants to show off predetermined elements of synchronized swimming that must be done in the exact order that they have been given. The free routine on the other hand has no such bounds. This is the routine where the swimmers incorporate their own unique moves and show off their imaginative and artistic talents.

        The length of time allowed for the routines is greatly dependent on the number of participants. Solo and duet competitions are the shortest routines as they are given just two and a half minutes to complete their routine. Team competitions naturally would require more time for them to be able to show off their skills and are therefore usually given up to 5 minutes to complete their routine. The skill level of the competition and the age level of the participants are also usually considered when determining the maximum allowed time for the completion of a routine.

        Synchronized swimming was first exhibited at the Olympics during the 1952 summer games. It was not until the Olympic Games at Los Angeles, California in 1984 however that it became an official sport of the Olympics. Furthermore, it was only in 1968 that synchronized swimming was recognized by the Federation Internationale de Natation (FINA) as the fourth official water sport, joining the ranks of swimming, water polo, and platform diving.
