The Floating Aerohotel NEw 2013

Russian architect Alexander Asadov is fighting global warming with innovative building designs. His latest concept is a floating Aerohotel, pictured above. This floating island features a 200-meter hub containing hotel rooms or residences, cafes, winter gardens, and restaurants.  The Aerohotel is held aloft by a system of supports and three main legs anchored to the bottom of the site, and unlike man-made islands with tons of gravel fill, this design preserves the aquatic ecosystem below. Asadov's studio states that the construction costs and environmental impact of his design are significantly lower than gravel works projects. This design can be installed in any body of water, and the plan includes docks for boats and a landing strip for zeppelins. Because if you're cool enough to live in a floating island, you're cool enough to travel.





Vagobond Travel Museum The World’s Best Beaches NEw 2013

Want to know where the world’s best beaches are?  There are a few ways you can find out. One is to go to a source like the famous Dr. Beach he’s one guy and he lists the world’s best beaches every year. The only problem is that he focuses solely on the USA and he likes to shift the list around to give all the beaches a fair chance. By the way, Dr. Beach’s favorite for 2012? Coronado Beach near San Diego. As for me my favorite beach in the world is without a doubt Kalama’s Beach in Kailua on the island of Oahu, Hawaii. Not quite as beautiful as the nearby Lanikai Beach but with better waves, Kalamas isn’t as crowded as Kailua Beach Park and has wide expanses of sand. Perfect for body surfing, beautiful views of the Mokulua Islands and a safe and friendly locals beach on an island crowded with tourists. I wanted to know the very favorite beaches of people who travel all over the world to out of the way places and who don’t necessarily have a commercial reason to list one over the other. So I turned, once again, to the travel bloggers of the world. I wasn’t the only one to pick a Hawaiian Beach as my favorite.  Stacy Kuyf of One Travels Far picked La’aloa Beach Park (Magic Sands) on the Big Island of Hawaii (and a few other incredible Big Island beaches.) A couple of mainland American beaches made it to the list as well. Bret Love of Green Global Travel chose Sanibel Island Beach in Florida. Dr. Jesse Voights of Wandering Educators preferred the Great Lakes beaches of Michigan’s Sunset Coast.

Rye Beach, New Hampshire Wedding From Emilie Signature Events


Growing up in the small, seacoast area of New Hampshire, I always knew that I wanted to have a fall wedding in my hometown. Even though Tyler and I currently live right outside of New York City, I am a New England girl at heart and there is something so special about NH in the fall. Over the years, Tyler and I have spent a lot of time in NH together and he has grown to love the area as much as I do. We decided to get married at St. Andrew’s by the Sea, a beautiful, historic stone chapel right by the ocean, and host our reception at Abenaqui Country Club. Both locations are less than two miles from my childhood home so it was amazing to celebrate our wedding day in places that hold such fond, personal memories. Overall, we wanted our wedding to capture the warm, relaxed feeling of fall in NH, but also feel elegant and chic. The inspiration for our wedding actually originated from a shoe! We found this gorgeous Christian Louboutin shoe in a classic tartan (which we later learned was called Stewart Black) and thought the plaid was the perfect way to incorporate the bold, rich colors and textures of fall fashion into our wedding theme. Using the plaid was also a fun way to acknowledge my heritage, as my great grandparents were from Scotland. We incorporated the tartan in many different ways, from the formal invitations to the table linens and place cards. Tyler and his groomsmen wore tartan suspenders that he ordered from Scotland. We also used the tartan on the escort cards, which were mini picnic baskets filled with our favorite candy and topped with a bundle of plaid fabric. Our wedding planner, Amy, did an amazing job of using the plaid fabric and color palette in the reception d├ęcor. She recommended creating plaid overlays and runners and pairing them with bold red linens and napkins, black wine goblets, red tealight holders and striking black chairs. As a nod to the rustic NH setting, we integrated birch accents with birch wrapped vases for the floral centerpieces, birch napkin rings and a birch cakestand. Because we wanted a, romantic, candlelit atmosphere, the tent lighting was a warm amber color and with patterns that resembled fall foliage and branches. It was important to us that the wedding look and feel beautiful, but we also wanted it to be very personal. My Dad was in the Marine Corps and my parents used his sword to cut their wedding cake, so it was really important to me to carry on this tradition. Because my grandparents have passed away, we also found ways to acknowledge them on our special day. I wore my grandmother’s fur bolero jacket and I also wore my mom’s wedding garter, which she updated by adding my grandmother’s rose pin and a touch of plaid fabric in the shape of a rose. We even had my grandparents’ original wedding cake topper on display at the cupcake table. For our guestbook, we decided to forgo the traditional book and ask our guests to sign a wooden bench that we had engraved with our initials and wedding date. Finally, the biggest hit of the reception was definitely the photo booth. All of our guests walked away with their own fun photo prints from the night, and Tyler and I ended up with even more photos of our family and friends to complement the pictures taken by our wonderful wedding photographer.





Hepatitis C Tests Continue After NH Tech’s Arrest NEw

Hospitals across the country recommended hepatitis C testing for about 7,900 patients last summer after a traveling medical worker was accused of stealing drugs and infecting patients with tainted syringes in New Hampshire. But five months later, nearly half of those who were possibly exposed to the liver-destroying disease in other states have yet to be tested. Described by prosecutors as a “serial infector,” David Kwiatkowski is accused of stealing syringes of the powerful painkiller fentanyl from the cardiac catheterization lab at New Hampshire’s Exeter Hospital and replacing them with saline-filled syringes tainted with his own blood. In jail since his arrest in July, he pleaded not guilty to 14 federal drug charges earlier this month and is expected to go to trial next fall. Before April 2001, when he was hired in New Hampshire, Kwiatkowski worked as a traveling cardiac technologist in 18 hospitals in seven states, moving from job to job despite being fired twice over allegations of drug use and theft. Thirty-two people in New Hampshire have been diagnosed with the same strain of hepatitis C that Kwiatkowski carries, along with six in Kansas, five in Maryland and one in Pennsylvania. At least 3,700 people outside New Hampshire have yet to be tested, hospitals and public health officials told The Associated Press. For example, in Michigan, where Kwiatkowski grew up and started his career, about 2,300 patients at five hospitals were notified that they may have been exposed to hepatitis C by Kwiatkowski. As of early December, only about 500 had gone in for testing, none of whom were diagnosed with a strain linked to the New Hampshire outbreak, according to the Michigan Department of Community Health. In Pennsylvania, 2,280 patients at the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center Presbyterian were notified that they should get tested, but only 840 have, one of whom was diagnosed with a matching strain of hepatitis C. Kwiatkowski was fired a few weeks into his temporary job at UPMC in 2008 after a co-worker accused him of swiping a fentanyl syringe from an operating room and sticking it down his pants. Citing a lack of evidence, hospital authorities didn’t call police, and neither the hospital nor the medical staffing agency that placed him in the job informed the national accreditation organization for radiological technicians. Within days, Kwiatkowski was starting a new job at the Baltimore VA Medical Center, where one patient also has since been diagnosed with hepatitis C linked to Kwiatkowski. Though the VA center initially said it had identified 168 patients who may have been exposed, that number was later lowered, and 68 patients ultimately were tested. Two other Maryland hospitals where Kwiatkowski worked also have completed their testing, with no diagnosed cases of hepatitis C matching Kwiatkowski. But at the fourth, The Johns Hopkins Hospital in Baltimore, four patients have been diagnosed with the strain of disease linked to Kwiatkowski. About 500 of the 1,567 patients notified by Johns Hopkins have yet to be tested, according to hospital spokeswoman Kim Hoppe. Kwiatkowski had been referred by a staffing agency that assured Johns Hopkins that it had followed a vigorous vetting process, Hoppe said. He worked there for two 13-week stints, from July 2009 to January 2010. Saint Francis Hospital in Poughkeepsie, N.Y., where Kwiatkowski worked in late 2007 and early 2008, notified and tested 31 patients without finding any linked cases to Kwiatkowski. In Kansas, nearly all of the 416 patients who may have been exposed at Hays Medical Center have been tested and six have been diagnosed with infections linked to the New Hampshire outbreak. There have been no cases linked to Kwiatkowski in Arizona, where about 300 patients from two hospitals have been asked to get tested and about 280 have done so. Kwiatkowski worked at Maryvale Hospital in Phoenix in 2009 and the Arizona Heart Hospital in 2010. He was fired from the latter job after 10 days after a co-worker found him passed out in a bathroom stall with a stolen fentanyl syringe floating in the toilet. That incident was reported to police, Kwiatkowski’s staffing agency, a state regulatory board and the national accreditation organization, but the accreditation group dropped its inquiry after learning police hadn’t filed charges. Days later, Kwiatkowski landed a new job filling in for striking technicians at Temple University Hospital in Philadelphia. That hospital has recommended testing for 312 patients but won’t say how many have followed through or have been diagnosed with hepatitis C. A hospital spokesman referred questions to the city health department, which did not return calls. Testing also is still under way in the last place Kwiatkowski worked before heading to New Hampshire Houston Medical Center in Warner Robins, Ga. According to the hospital, fewer than 100 people have yet to be tested, and there haven’t been any cases yet linked to Kwiatkowski. In New Hampshire, where about 3,300 patients were tested, Kwiatkowski is charged with seven counts of illegally obtaining drugs and seven counts of tampering with a consumer product, though prosecutors have said further charges are possible. Although New Hampshire cannot charge him for possible violations in other states, it can use evidence gathered in those jurisdictions in its trial, U.S. Attorney John Kacavas said. Other states are waiting to see the outcome of New Hampshire’s case before deciding whether to file charges, he said. “We continue to reach out to other states affected by this matter,” Kacavas said this week. “Other health organizations and departments continue to do their work in their states, but nothing has changed in the sense that our prosecution will go forward. At this point, we are the only prosecution in the country, and we’ll see how it rolls out.”

Notes Computer Questions And Answers English Language 2013

Q No 1:  What is computer ?
Ans:

  1. An electronic device for storing and processing data, typically in binary form, according to instructions given to it in a variable program.
  2. A person who makes calculations, esp. with a calculating machine.


Q No 2: Parts of a Computer ?
If you use a desktop computer, you might already know that there isn't any single part called the "computer." A computer is really a system of many parts working together. The physical parts, which you can see and touch, are collectively called hardware. (Software, on the other hand, refers to the instructions, or programs, that tell the hardware what to do.)
The illustration below shows the most common hardware in a desktop computer system. Your system may look a little different, but it probably has most of these parts. A laptop computer has similar parts but combines them into a single notebook-sized package.
