Now, walkie-talkies to aid SWM

Thanks for reading my website, here is an article i actually enjoyed reading. With their consent i can repost it. I write tons of my own articles, but irregularly repost other articles i think are fascinating, thankyou for reading.

As part of its efforts to improve and streamline solid waste management (SWM) in the city, the Bruhat Bangalore Mahanagara Palike will soon begin distribution of two-way radios (walkie-talkies) to officials handling the service.

According to BBMP Commissioner M Lakshminarayana, walkie-talkie handsets will be used to relay messages on uncleared garbage. When members of the public call the BBMP’s control rooms with complaints on uncleared waste, staff will relay the information to the officials concerned via walkie-talkie.

Interestingly, the plan could cut costs as it does not involve purchase of new equipment. Instead, nearly 300 two-way radios, that are currently used by senior officials or fitted to their service vehicles, will be redistributed to other staff.

Lakshminarayana explained that currently walkie-talkies were provided to staff of the rank of assistant executive engineers and above. “However, the service was not effective as officials were using mobile phones,” he said.

“Now, in order to utilise the service more effectively, we are planning to provide this service only to officials working in SWM such as health inspectors, assistant engineers (including ward engineers) and others,” he said.

Explaining further, Lakshminarayana said walkie-talkie handsets given to officials working in welfare, roads and other departments will be withdrawn.

“These officials do not require this service,” he said.

He also said because of unnecessary lines, walkie-talkie communication was not effective.

“All these days, walkie-talkie service was hierarchy-based and given to senior officials. But now onwards, it will be an activity-based service,” he added.

The Commissioner said he had asked the joint commissioner (Health), who is in-charge of SWM, to provide a list of officials working in the department.

However, some Councillors are sceptical. A senior councillor from the BJP, who wished to remain anonymous, said “Our officials do not have commitment. If we complain about garbage on the streets to them over phone, they will not make an attempt to clear it.”

“Now, complaints will be conveyed to officials via walkie-talkie from control room staff. How can one expect them to clear the garbage?,” he questioned.

Sony Ericsson W8 – Not Your Ordinary Walkman Phone

bluetooth 7.1With very little information on the internet about radio earpiece‘s, it is very rare when we get a chance to re post, with permission, an article from this industry.

It has been a longtime tradition for handheld mobile device to allow us to enjoy more from our music.

By giving us the ability to store our tracks on our phone’s memory, you could listen to your music on the go. This means that you no longer have to rely on mp3 players to listen to music. All you had to do was plug in headsets to your mobile phone and listen to tracks.
With the Sony Ericsson W8, you get to enjoy more from your music and more.

First of all, when it comes storing your tracks, the phone comes with 1528 MB of onboard memory. This might not be enough to store your multi-media. However, you can make use of as much as 16 GB from a micro-SD card. This provides more than enough storage for files such as your tracks.

One of the unique features found on this handset is PlayNow. This download portal allows you to get more from your favorite artists or artists that you are yet to discover. Here, you can choose to purchase songs from a wide variety of albums and artists.

When listening on the go comes to mind, you never have to plug in perky headsets with wires. Users on the Sony Ericsson W8 will get to enjoy wireless headsets via Bluetooth. This means that you can keep the Walkman Phone in your pocket and enjoy more from wireless freedom.

The smartphone does not just allow you to choose from your playlist by going through song titles. It allows you to browse through music by viewing CD album art. This is a more entertaining way to choose the songs you would like to listen to.

The Walkman Phone allows you to enjoy more from its patented Walkman player. This unique player on the Sony Ericsson W8 allows you to sort by artist, track, or album. With these options, users are given more convenient options when it comes to sorting through their music.

Another unique feature on this smartphone is TrackID music recognition. This feature allows you to record a few seconds of a track. You then upload it to the feature. In a matter of seconds, you will get the name of the track, the album where it is found, and other helpful information.

You even get the option to purchase the song if it is available.
As you can see, music on the Sony Ericsson W8 is taken to a whole new level. It may not be as cutting edge as the SE XPERIA Play. However, it allows you to enjoy from your songs and more.

The Dead Actor’s Studio

What’s your favorite feature of the technological advancement? Personally, I like the design job – Its cooler than an Inuit’s underpants!

police frequenciesImagine a young Marlon Brando starring alongside Johnny Depp, or Audrey Hepburn playing rival to Sandra Bullock as Marilyn Monroe stops by for a catty cameo.

Depending on how you look at it, this is either tantalizing ‘fantasy film making’ or else an utterly horrible, cash-in exercise in Hollywood excess. Whatever your viewpoint, it does seem likely that someone, somewhere will try this in the near future.

About three years ago, the news broke that George Lucas, the genius behind the ‘Star Wars’ merchandise (and a couple of related movies), was buying up the likeness rights to a plethora of iconic, yet deceased, leading men and famous actresses from Hollywood’s golden age. His plan? To use a concoction of existing footage, CGI and motion capture to create reasonable facsimiles of classic Hollywood stars and have them appear in future films, despite the notable handicap of being, well, dead.

Initially, it was just for one project, but it raised the prospect of other films being made, as well as a number of interesting philosophical issues.

The majority of critics reacted negatively to the notion of these ‘Franken-films’, some saying that the magic of an individual acting performance would be notably absent in the films, others upset that the actors themselves could potentially ‘star’ in projects that they may not have supported in life.

It really must be said, however, that blockbuster movies like 2009’s ‘Avatar’ and 2011’s ‘Rise of the Planet of the Apes’ already received plaudits for their use of motion capture techniques and CGI ‘acting’. It is an accepted part of modern cinema, like it or not.

Lest we forget, George Lucas’ own ‘Star Wars’ films also featured a number of purely CG characters. In our era, we are becoming very used to CG characters; even CG versions of real actors are commonplace. It really isn’t a huge leap of imagination (or available technology) to foresee deceased stars headlining blockbusters once again.

We are also living in a world that specializes in the glorification of deceased idols and recycled imagery (take a look at this month’s music magazines and count how many times you see Jimi Hendrix, Kurt Cobain or other dead stars on the covers). Look at the movie magazines as they feature young DeNiro as Travis Bickle, or Ray Liotta as Henry Hill. We, as consumers, are being conditioned to expect our stars to be able to do anything we can imagine, including coming back from the dead.

Why we want it:

The question here, to at least some degree, is ‘do we want it?’ but for now, I’m going to be positive and assume that we do…

Bringing classic actors back to ‘life’ would be a daring and controversial decision and would inspire all kinds of debates. It would also, no doubt, stimulate the film industry by providing literally hundreds of thousands of new prospects, pairings and casting choices.

On the downside, it would probably create an updated version of the old Hollywood studio system that would likely prove to be a legal nightmare involving no small amount of heartache for the families of the stars being featured. It could also have the negative effect of holding down upcoming talent.

However, many Hollywood actors do what they do for a shot at immortality and this is, frankly, the closest that they are likely to get to that goal. It would not surprise me at all if ‘likeness rights’ contracts started containing an ‘after death’ clause that specified use of the actor’s image in posthumous film projects.

Culturally speaking, in a world where dead musicians like Hendrix and 2Pac routinely release albums and where popular music is dominated by the ‘sampling’ (and in some cases, outright theft) of other works, or where film texts constantly, almost obsessive-compulsively, reference each other (in what has become the intertextual equivalent of an M.C Escher drawing), rehashing the stars of the past seems like an obvious choice.

Dead icons could spice up Hollywood by adding controversy, class and bankability to the summer’s contrived blockbuster selection. Plus, all their skeletons, secrets and shameful actions are already a matter of public record, so there’s no ill-timed revelatory ‘gossip’ that’s going to rear up and threaten the production.

Even those who oppose the making of such movies will still have to watch them in order to write the requisite bad reviews, this simply proves the old adage that controversy generates cash.

When can we expect it?

Oh snap, it already happened. In the year 2000, actor Oliver Reed sadly died during the filming of Ridley Scott’s ‘Gladiator’. In order for him to finish what would become his final role, the VFX team created a CG ‘mask’ of Reed’s face and used a body double to complete their film.

Remember that car advert with Steve McQueen? It has already begun.

Real, workable CGI stars are already a reality, but the technology does not yet exist to create a completely CG James Dean for a sequel to ‘Rebel Without a Cause’. I’d give it maybe 10-20 years before we start seeing the stars in respectful, tasteful cameo roles, or else old actors performing alongside their younger selves. After that, it’ll be 3-5 years before we see the screen idols like Errol Flynn, Clark Gable and Grace Kelly headlining movies again.

Cool factor 3/5 – It really depends on how these ‘stars’ are handled. The results could, potentially, be beautiful codas to a star’s career (which is how they could be sold to the audience), but they could also be horribly insulting, denigrating the work of great actors and actresses. Time is going to tell, as usual…

Playing Online A Lot? In Need Of A Decent Headset?

With very little information on the internet about earphone‘s, it is very rare when we get a chance to re post, with permission, an article from this industry.

Are you having trouble with hearing the insults being hurled at you when you play games online? Its bad enough that youre being screamed at in a language you can barely comprehend, let alone when you cant hear most of whats being said.

The Internet has opened the world up to people in ways that would have been inconceivable just a few short decades ago. In bygone times, there would be no way for me to maintain complicated and close friendships with people who live thousands of miles away, but today? Today I maintain regular contact with distant relatives both at home and abroad.

Whilst I was at University, I wrote a paper on the lack of accurate representation of first nations people in American media. As a British person, to compile the massive amount of data I used (which included interviews, up to date anthropological studies and historical anecdotes) would have been next to impossible without the Internet. I also befriended one of my interviewees and we have a friendship that continues to this day, despite never having met face to face. Thats just one of the many great things about the Internet.

Politically, the Internet has made it harder for the governments of the world to perform their usual scaremongering and war waging tactics (harder, but not impossible, sadly). In the past, the neighbouring countries of A and B never had contact with each other beyond killing each other over a piece of paper or some drunk diplomats off colour remarks every few years, but today, the people of A can exchange emails with the people of B and talk to them openly and frankly. This means that if the government of B tells its people that the citizens of A eat their own children, a quick email or Skype call can confirm whether or not this is the case. This might help to explain why they keep trying to censor the net? Perhaps freedom of speech makes a better theory than practice in their eyes?

Of course, its not all serious stuff like wars and University assignments, for much of the time, its the games that do the talking and playing together benefits from much the same sociological effects as a free ranging chat does. See? Youre not wasting your time, youre saving the world, man.

This site is full of links to news, reviews and places to buy the very best headsets around. If youre going to play collaboratively, then you really do need a top quality headset and if you want one of those, youre certainly in the right place. With a new headset, you can explore the world in the most modern and up to date way, with all the cursing, belittling and trash talking intact. That has to be worth something, doesnt it? Whatever, Im off to kill some zombies.

Everything you know about earbuds is wrong

Wow. The brand new headset is wonderful. I mean its just so gorgeous and so sophisticated. I pity those who grew up without the earphone.

Apple earbuds (left), and Etymotic ER-4 in-ear headphones (right).

It’s easy to understand why there’s so much confusion surrounding the differences between earbud and in-ear headphones. The two designs are sometimes referred to interchangeably, but they are two very different types of headphones. Earbuds rest on the outer concha ridge of the ear, located in the center of your outer ear. In-ear or ear-canal headphones are placed inside the ear canal, sealing the listener off from environmental noise.

A few in-ears — like the Etymotic ER-4 — fit deep into the ear canal to provide maximum isolation. Most in-ears are more comfortable “shallow fit” designs that provide less but still substantial noise reduction.

One not-so-obvious advantage of blocking outside noise is that since you don’t have to play music loud enough to overcome the din, you can listen at much lower, safer levels. In-ears’ noise isolation is a purely passive function; it doesn’t require batteries or electronics. In-ears’ isolation is good, but not as effective at hushing the din as the better noise-canceling in-ear or full-size headphones, which always use batteries and electronics. I find that noise-isolating headphones tend to sound better than noise-canceling headphones.

Phiaton PS210 half in-ear headphones.

Some people find the process of inserting in-ear headphones uncomfortable and don’t like being cut off from the environment, so they will probably find earbuds’ less-intrusive fit more comfortable. Earbuds also have another potentially significant advantage over in-ears: They let you hear more sound in your environment. With earbuds, you won’t feel sealed off from your surroundings, and that’s definitely a plus if you’re exercising, riding a bike, or walking on busy streets. I’m referring to the sort of earbuds that come with phones and iPods.

For best sound quality, I prefer in-ear headphones. Finding great-sounding earbuds is next to impossible, but Phiaton’s PS210 “half in-ear” headphone ($159) bridges the gap; it’s literally a hybrid of the two types of designs.

mototrbo iMPROVE PERFORMANCE IN YOUR CREWS AND YOUR COMMUNITY

When we found this informative article we were so pleased, having searched for over one year for this, finding it on this site was an thrilling day for me.

events 8th novemberWhether you’re a streets and sanitation worker on a snowplow or a parks and recreation crew on a maintenance call, citizens expect a certain level of performance.

The Challenge

Serving the public with critical services such as mass transit, public works, streets and sanitation, and parks and recreation have become even more challenging for local government today.
Despite budget cuts, citizens and businesses still expect the same commitment and quality.

What are Earbuds

With such a lot of information around the web about headset’s it’s hard to discover the best and most honest information. heres an article from a reputable website that i believe as veritable, do not quote me on it but please read and enjoy
Earbuds are headphones, typically made out of a hard plastic material, that fit inside the ear, just outside of the ear canal. These arent the same thing as ear canal earphone, which have a rubber tip and seal within a listeners ear canal.

security networksSeveral portable music devices, like mp3s and Personal Digital Assistants (PDAs), come with earbuds when the device is purchased. Earbuds are a less expensive alternative to ear canal headphones or other listening devices. Consumers tend to purchase earbuds for their convenience, as they are easier to carry around than other headphones because of their small size.

This style of headphone also tends to be more inexpensive than other kinds, like ear canal headphones, circumaural headphones that fit outside the ears, or the supra-aural headphones that have pads that are placed on top of the ears, rather than around or inside them. Circumaural headphones are typically used in recording studios and supra-aural headphones can still be purchased at some stores, though these kinds of devices have given way to headphones that fit within the ear.

Because of the design of earbuds, there can be a few drawbacks to owning them as opposed to owning another style of headphone. First, the rigid design of earbuds can sometimes make it difficult for them to fit comfortably inside a listeners ear. If theyre too large or too small, they can either slip out of the ear or wont fit inside it at all. Another problem reported by consumers is that because earbuds dont seal the ear canal, the sound quality is muddled through other ambient noises.

Essentially, most earbuds work the same as other headphones and the set-up is relatively simple. Wires move up from the electronic device that is putting out sound, such as an mp3 player. These wires connect to a voice coil. The coil is attached to a cone, which is flexible and plastic. A magnet is attached to the back of the earbuds. When sound passes up through the wires and to the magnet, the voice coil becomes electromagnetic and moves up and down with the sound. The cone then pushes the sound out through the earbud and into the listeners ear.

When listening to earbuds or any other type of headphones, physicians recommend to keep the volume at a reasonable level, as research had proven that prolonged exposure to high noise levels can lead to permanent hearing loss. Prolonged listening to loud noises, including music, puts unnecessary stress on the hairs in the cochlea. This causes permanent damage to the hairs and can eventually lead to hearing loss.
