Let Scanning Solutions Improve Your Workflow

Many companies operate under the impression that scanning documents is a simple, but limited, method for document storage. Although scanning does indeed reduce storage costs, there are many more benefits to implementing a scanning solution than storage alone. In fact, electronically archiving your business records is just one small step you can take toward improving operational efficiency and lowering document costs.

Regardless of your specific industry, a successful scanning solution will reap many benefits, all of which will ultimately have an impact on your bottom line. Once your documents are scanned, document management software ups the ante by adding a laundry list of practical benefits that can save your business time and money. Scanning paper documents and storing them electronically also creates a centralized file cabinet with secured areas, limiting access to only those employees with permission to access specific files. In addition, the document management software records who accessed the document and provides an audit trail. Consider the fact that 90% of US companies had a security breach in the last year from people accessing hardcopy documents. Sadly, many of these breaches go undetected because there is no way to know who accessed these documents when they are in paper form.

Imagine the amount of time you spend hunting down specific documents. Now multiply that amount of time by your total number of employees. If time is money, a successful scanning solution will turn back the clock.

Here are just a few of the many benefits of a scanning solution:

• Increased productivity

• Shortened document retrieval time

• Increased compliance

• Reduced labor costs

• Streamlined auditing

• Reduced storage costs

It’s easy to imagine just how valuable combining a scanning system with a document management solution can be. And it’s also simple to see how inefficient it is to manage your business documents without these tools. For example, without a proper system in place, a customer might call with a question regarding his or her order. Because of the many steps involved in a given purchase, your employee must follow a veritable trail of breadcrumbs in order to answer the customer’s inquiry.

Oftentimes, this results in time lost, which, for your average customer, is frustration gained. A successful scanning and document management solution will allow all the documents associated with particular orders to be accessed by anyone at any time. This way, when the customer calls, your employee is ready with the correct answer almost immediately.

So, while scanning business documents is often useful, it is barely scratching the surface of scanning potential. Embrace the process of real-time scanning, and watch as your company’s workflow drastically improves.

Science & Technology

The content standards presented in this chapter outline what students should know, understand, and be able to do in natural science. The content standards are a complete set of outcomes for students; they do not prescribe a curriculum. These standards were designed and developed as one component of the comprehensive vision of science education presented in the National Science Education Standards and will be most effective when used in conjunction with all of the standards described in this book. Furthermore, implementation of the content standards cannot be successful if only a subset of the content standards is used (such as implementing only the subject matter standards for physical, life, and earth science).

The eight categories of content standards are:

1. Unifying concepts and processes in science.

2. Science as inquiry.

3. Physical science.

4. Life science.

5. Earth and space science.

6. Science and technology.

7. Science in personal and social perspectives.

8. History and nature of science.

The standard for unifying concepts and processes is presented for grades K-12, because the understanding and abilities associated with major conceptual and procedural schemes need to be developed over an entire education, and the unifying concepts and processes transcend disciplinary boundaries. The next seven categories are clustered for grades K-4, 5-8, and 9-12. Those clusters were selected based on a combination of factors, including cognitive development theory, the classroom experience of teachers, organization of schools, and the frameworks of other disciplinary-based standards. References for additional reading for all the content standards are presented at the end of Chapter 6.

The sequence of the seven grade-level content standards is not arbitrary: Each standard subsumes the knowledge and skills of other standards. Students’ understandings and abilities are grounded in the experience of inquiry, and inquiry is the foundation for the development of understandings and abilities of the other content standards. The personal and social aspects of science are emphasized increasingly in the progression from science as inquiry standards to the history and nature of science standards. Students need solid knowledge and understanding in physical, life, and earth and space science if they are to apply science.

Multidisciplinary perspectives also increase from the subject-matter standards to the standard on the history and nature of science, providing many opportunities for integrated approaches to science teaching.

1. Unifying Concepts and Processes Standard:

Conceptual and procedural schemes unify science disciplines and provide students with powerful ideas to help them understand the natural world. Because of the underlying principles embodied in this standard, the understandings and abilities described here are repeated in the other content standards. Unifying concepts and processes include:

i. Systems, order, and organization.

ii. Evidence, models, and explanation.

iii. Change, constancy, and measurement.

iv. Evolution and equilibrium.

v. Form and function.

This standard describes some of the integrative schemes that can bring together students’ many experiences in science education across grades K-12. The unifying concepts and processes standard can be the focus of instruction at any grade level but should always be closely linked to outcomes aligned with other content standards.

Early grades, instruction should establish the meaning and use of unifying concepts and processes-for example, what it means to measure and how to use measurement tools. At the upper grades, the standard should facilitate and enhance the learning of scientific concepts and principles by providing students with a big picture of scientific ideas-for example, how measurement is important in all scientific endeavors.

2. Science as Inquiry Standards:

In the vision presented by the Standards, inquiry is a step beyond ”science as a process,” in which students learn skills, such as observation, inference, and experimentation. The new vision includes the “processes of science” and requires that students combine processes and scientific knowledge as they use scientific reasoning and critical thinking to develop their understanding of science. Engaging students in inquiry helps students develop

i. Understanding of scientific concepts.
ii. An appreciation of “how we know” what we know in science.
iii. Understanding of the nature of science.
iv. Skills necessary to become independent inquirers about the natural world.
v. The dispositions to use the skills, abilities, and attitudes associated with science.

Apple’s New Products – Get Ready for Red

Apple wants you to see “red”, and hopefully buy one too.

The tech giant is releasing a new red phone hoping to capitalize on a vibrant color scheme that could appeal to its huge base of consumers.

The red phones are available in both iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus models. They feature a crimson aluminum finish.

The phones come in 128GB and 256GB storage variations. Pricing is inline or perhaps a little higher than other iPhone versions.

The 128GB version sells for $749. The iPhone 7 Plus goes for $869. Those enrolled in the iPhone Upgrade Program will be able to land one for $37 per month.

Apple has had a decade-long (RED) campaign, which contributes to the Global Fund to fight AIDS. Apple said it’s the world’s largest corporate donor to the Global Fund, contributing more than $130 million. The red phone is said to be a piece of this strategy. The company will donate some money to the charity for each phone sold.

Fans of Apple were recently surprised too with the announcement of a new iPad. It replaces the Air 2 already on the market. It has a 9.7 inch retina display Apple is known for. It comes with a 64-bit A9 chip and 10 hours of battery life.

The iPad has many features Apple fans like such as Fingerprint, TouchID security. It comes with the ability to download and utilize over one million apps specifically for the device.

Also included is an 8-megapixel camera to shoot detailed images or 1080 HD video. Editing can be done them right on the iPad with Photos, iMovie, or an app from the App Store.

Pricing for the new iPad begins at $329 for a 32GB model. It can go up to a $559 for a model which has 128GB with cellular capability.

On a smaller scale, the iPhone SE is getting a boost in storage. Apple is phasing out the 16GB and 64GB models but doubling their storage capacities to 32GB and 128GB. The 4 inch screen phone is getting a little more powerful while the price remains the same at around $399.

Also of note is a new app called Clips. It is a free app and helps users combine video clips, photos and music to be shared through messages and social media. Clips will be available soon on iOS 10.3, with “artistic filters” shapes and emojis.

According to Apple, Clips will automatically recognize people in a video and suggest them as recipients of messages. The app then pulls in elements that are popular in Instagram, Snapchat, Vine, Google Photos and others.

The newer devices, and lower priced iPad, are indications that Apple is redefining some products and the pricing structure. This new strategy takes direct aim at many lower priced competitors. The end result could leave much of the competition not only seeing red, but a lot more.

Medical Device Innovations: From Sci-Fi Movies to the Real World

Star Trek Tricorder
The handheld medical device used in the popular Star Trek Enterprise might soon become a reality. With Qualcomm having began a contest to see if anyone can create a working tricorder (that weighs less than 5 pounds and fits in the palm!), the healthcare industry might be able to benefit from this great innovation. With the ability to diagnose different conditions (ranging from anemia, diabetes, pneumonia, sleep apnea, and chronic diseases amongst others) and monitor vital signs (like blood pressure, heart rate, temperature and respiratory rate) of patients, the tricorder can be used by patients in the comforts of their homes, without having to visit the doctor.

Ender’s Game Robotic Medical Assistant
While Ender’s Game featured a surgical robot performing brain surgery, robotic medical assistants majorly enable safe patient lifting, reducing incidents of workplace injuries, and hence improved clinician staff retention and satisfaction as well as patient satisfaction. These assistants are highly mobile, can move in any direction, and seamlessly operate in confined spaces. They can either work side by side with a trained nurse with the ability to perform simple tasks like monitoring vital signs or delivering medicine. Some robotic nurses serve as interfaces for doctors to use over distances to communicate with patients, and can be supervised by a remotely located nurse, enabling remotely located clinical experts to monitor, diagnose and treat patients in real-time

Mission Impossible Augmented Reality Contact Lens
Google Glass may soon become passé, as augmented reality contact lenses are here. If you’ve ever dreamed of neon interfaces float in front of you and information projected into your eyes (and not on screens), your dream might soon become reality – like showcased in Mission Impossible. With a futuristic vision, device manufacturers are working on developing lenses that will read the light from projectors fitted to glasses. Consisting of a small display, a camera, an RF antenna and sensors, these lenses will detect eye movement, and give patients the ability to control certain inputs just by blinking. These specialized lenses will help users focus on both close and faraway objects. What’s more, advanced AR lenses will also measure blood glucose from tears, and will transform the treatment and management of diabetes.

The Next Black Smart Garment
Move on smart wearables, as smart garments are soon going to become hugely popular. Documentary film The Next Black showcases smart garments (fibretronics) with microchips implanted into them. From socks and sleeves, to shirts and shorts – these smart garments have the ability to react to body temperature, track heart rate, monitor emotions and other vital signs (or even the mood of the wearer) and can be used by doctors in novel ways – without having to grab a phone or tap a screen. By decoupling the touch interface from the digital device, smart garments incorporate sensors that enable simple monitoring, and send the captured data through a wireless signal to the wearer’s mobile device.

The Fifth Element 3D Bio-printer
When makers of The Fifth Element showcased 3D bio-printing, little did they know the concept would someday become a reality! Imagine the level of innovation at which technology has now reached – while 3D printing is being popularly used to create objects, the technology is now being exploited in the medical field. 3D bioprinters are being used to build human tissues (and even organs), for the purpose of research as well as transplantation. Using computed tomography and MRI, bioprinters take a layer-by-layer approach and reconstruct cells and tissues which are then fed with oxygen and nutrients to keep them alive.

The Lithium Ion Battery Advantages

Li-ion battery or Lithium ion battery is one of several types of rechargeable batteries. During the discharge process, the lithium ions travel from the anode to the cathode and vice versa. Let’s know a bit more about the advantages of lithium-ion batteries.

How do these batteries work?

Different types of li-ion batteries make use of different types of cathodes. The cathodes are made of lithium molecules. Generally, the anodes are made of carbon. As with other types of batteries, the chemical reaction that happen between the cathode, anode and the electrolyte generate electric current. Aside from this, the stuff used for these will affect the cost, capacity, performance and the safety of a certain type of battery.

Li-ion batteries, for instance, that feature a lithium cobalt oxide cathode can give you a bit higher capacity. However, they are more reactive because of the lower thermal capacities. Another great option is the lithium iron phosphate. Their life cycle is 4-5 times longer. Moreover, their power density is around 10 times better.

These batteries are of various classes, but they are commonly used in portable or consumer devices like smartphones and laptops. Aside from this, this type of battery is also popular for use in aerospace, military and other electric automobiles.

Given below are some pros and cons of lithium ion batteries.

Lighter and smaller:

These batteries are lightweight but offer higher capacity than other types of products out there. Therefore, it is commonly used in portable devices where the physical specs like form factor and weight are on the list of important considerations.

Energy Density

Lion batteries feature higher density of energy than other types, which means you can enjoy higher capacity irrespective of the size. That is why these batteries are an ideal choice for power-hungry devices like smartphones and laptops. With the advancements in technology, we will have higher capacities down the road.

Self-discharge

Another great characteristic of a Li-ion battery is that it has only 1.5% self-discharge rate per month, which means that it offers longer-shelf life. The reason is that its discharge rate is lower than most of other rechargeable batteries. Here it’s important to note that the self-discharge rate of a nickel-metal hydride is 20% per month.

Fast charging

This type of battery recharges quickly. Usually, it takes a lot less time to recharge than other types on the market.

Open-circuit voltage

Li-ion batteries offer high open-circuit voltage compared to other batteries like nickel-metal hydride, lead acid and so on.

Lifespan

These batteries last longer than other batteries. Even after hundreds of recharging cycles, it will retain its capacity. For instance, some batteries of this type loss only 30% of their capacity even after 1000 cycles.

So, this was a description of Li-ion batteries and their advantages. If you have been looking for a good battery for your needs, we suggest that you take into account this type first. Due to the number of advantages they offer over other types, your best bet is to go for this type.
