Plants are the
primary source of food. The whole mankind in some way or the other depends upon
plants for their nutritional requirements. But how are plants able to produce
their own food? Why are humans not able to do the same? It is because of the
process called photosynthesis. The photosynthesis process
is unique to plants wherein light energy obtained from sunlight is utilized and
converted into chemical energy. Utilizing this energy from light,
sugars(carbohydrates) are produced from water and carbon dioxide. As a waste
product, oxygen is released which is the most vital gas for biological life to
survive on Earth.
process is governed by the presence of chlorophyll in living entities. The
presence of this pigment imparts the color green and assists in the absorption
of sunlight which helps it to combine with carbon dioxide to bring about the
conversion of these compounds into ATP. ATP or adenosine triphosphate is an
organic chemical vital in the association between living entities and energy
and is often referred to as the “energy currency for all life”.
Listed below are 5
reasons why photosynthesis is important:
1. One of the most
significant uses of the process of photosynthesis is that it provides living
entities with the life-sustaining gas i.e. Oxygen as a byproduct. It occurs in
the chloroplasts of plants and powers the living systems of the planet.
2. The photosynthesis
process is considered to the ultimate source of life for almost all the living
entities hence replenishing …
Back in the day, the video security
systems used analog technology, which was the revolution in the world of
monitoring and security for both businesses and household owners.
However, today, we live in the times when
analog has become passé which means that most people are using digital
technology that made analog perspective completely obsolete.
Therefore, if you wish to install a new
surveillance system that will protect your business, it is crucial to do it as
soon as possible, especially if you’re still using analog technology for video surveillance.
It doesn’t matter if you wish to do it for
commercial or residential purposes, because you will be able to implement an infrastructure
that will help you avoid burglaries and theft attempts.
Decades ago, analog surveillance was the
part of the security standard for most industries that you could find on the
market. However, today, you can find technology as well as smart software that
will help you improve customer support and accessibility.
You Will Reduce Theft and
It is essential to start from the very
beginning by saying that the apparent reason and advantage of the video
surveillance system is to provide you the ability to capture and store
everything that is going on, which is much better consideration than analog
You will be able to enjoy in HD clarity as
well as wide viewing angles.…
There are times in everyone’s life when it’s
impossible to get away, even to attend the funeral of a person who was very
important to you. Work obligations, family needs, or financial pressures might
prevent you from traveling to a funeral at a distant location. Increasingly,
funeral directors are offering webcasts of funeral services to make the
proceedings accessible to anyone who can’t be there in person.
Using one or more cameras mounted strategically in the
funeral chapel, a funeral director controls the webcast using computer
software, usually on a laptop reserved especially for the purpose. The funeral
service is streamed online in real time, letting anyone watch and hear the
After the service, the video is kept online for up to
a year, or even longer. The funeral director, in consultation with the family,
decides how long the video will be available.
Although funeral webcasts can be left open to anyone,
they are usually restricted for privacy. Family members can choose to set up
the funeral website with password protection, requiring anyone who wishes to
see the service to enter the pre-determined password. They can keep the
password protection in place during the entire time that the video is
Families can also decide who to notify before the
funeral takes place, usually via an email message system. This gives the family
another layer of privacy, ensuring that their very personal event is open only
to those they’ve chosen to notify. This practice isn’t …
The other day, I was
speaking with a thought leader from South Africa working with the schools and
promoting the future of innovation with the goal of fostering business
entrepreneurship to allow South Africa to meet the demands needed for the 21st
Century. One thing that I find interesting here in the United States is that
when we talk about energy innovation everyone assumes that we are talking about
solar technologies or better wind turbines. They never seem to consider the
traditional energy industry and all the technological advances being made there,
such as fracking.
There was an
interesting article in the ‘corporate news’ section of the Wall Street Journal
on December 17, 2012 titled; “Chevron Enters Shale Hunt in South Africa –
Company’s Decision Comes as Temporary Ban on Exploration Is Lifted in a Country
Estimated to Hold Large Reserves,” by Devon Maylie and Alexis Flynn which
noted that South Africa has the 5th largest estimated reserves using the new
fracking technologies – maybe more.
Believe me when I tell
you that as more fracking is going on around the world to get out gas and oil,
there will be new methods, and even more efficient technologies introduced. In
fact, it is happening now. If South Africa and other countries continue to
develop safer environmental strategies for fracking, and more efficient ways to
get at that oil and gas, then we can have the best of all worlds. You see,
shale fracking technology is real energy innovation, …
In the last few years, Cloud Hosting has evolved to become the preferred name in hosting for small and large websites alike due to a wide range of benefits offered by Cloud Hosting providers. Instant resource scalability with no single point of failover and around 99.9%+ uptimes have undeniably struck the right chord with site owners. However, despite its popularity, there are still many myths about Cloud Hosting which are keeping site owners away. In this article, we will look at all such myths which need debunking.
Website data is not exclusive to me. The hosting provider can view my user’s data!
The data can be accessed only by people who have been authorized by you and provided with a username and password.
Users considering public Cloud Hosting services might be inclined to think that since they upload their data to a third-party server, the hosting provider can view all their sensitive data. However, as a policy, no hosting provider can access your customer’s data without a user id and password. Also, this access has to be granted by you.
Cloud Hosting services are costlier than their traditional counterparts.
Cloud Hosting is the most cost-efficient option available.
Remember, we are talking about cost-efficiency. While certain traditional plans might seem cheaper to begin with, they usually include high costs for scaling up the resources. Further, downtimes can be costly for your business and reputation. Cloud Hosting allows you to include only as many resources …
