’E’ effect for water

first_imgHoshizaki has launched a new chemical-free cleaning system, which takes ordinary tap water and transforms it into Alkaline ’E’ Water and Acidic ’E’ Water. The ROX machine can use these two water types for almost all cleaning and sanitising requirements, without the use of chemicals and detergents. It is available in two models – the ROX-10WB-E which produces 0.7-1.5 litres of each water per minute, and the ROX-20TB-E, which produces 1.5-3 litres of each water per minute.The machine has a central tank, which takes tap water, with the addition of salt, and uses electrolysis and a negatively charged terminal on one side (for Alkaline ’E’ Water) and a positively charged terminal on the other side (for Acidic ’E’ Water). The Alkaline water is suitable for dissolving proteins and oils, whereas the acidic water is suitable for sanitising and for the removal and control of bacteria, which the company says is 80 times more effective than chemical cleaning. The two types of water can be used individually or at the same time and do not leave any residue.The two models are available for sale, lease and rental and are covered by a two-year guarantee.[http://www.hoshizaki.com]last_img read more

This Week’s Picks! Finding Neverlad, Bombshell & More

first_imgHey, you, bawling that you couldn’t get a ticket for the Bombshell reunion concert. There’s no need to get upset. Trust us, you’re so not alone. Besides, you always have your Smash fan fiction—and a ton of fun things to do this week. We have Jason Alexander’s debut in Fish in the Dark, a Spring Awakening reunion, and Cheyenne Jackson performing in your backyard. Dry your eyes and get ready for this week’s picks! See Jason Alexander’s Broadway ReturnBegins June 9 at the Cort TheatreJason Alexander cannot escape Larry David, not that we’re complaining. Seinfeld, where Alexander became a star, was co-created by David. Alexander’s character, George Costanza, was based on David. Now, 25 years after his last performance on the Great White Way, Alexander returns—to a Larry David-written play! Alexander takes over (for David, of course) in Fish in the Dark. Glenne Headly, whose career is not tangled with America’s favorite neurotic, joins him. Click for tickets! Fall for a Spring Awakening ReunionJune 9 at 54 BelowFamily reunions? Lame. High-school reunions? Mega-lame. Reunion featuring cast members from Spring Awakening’s Broadway and touring productions? Amazing. Join Jenna Ushkowitz, Phoebe Strole, Lilli Cooper and more as they belt out tunes and share backstage anecdotes. Three disclaimers: This isn’t a presentation of the musical or its songs. The first show features performers from the first national tour; the second and third shows feature Broadway cast members. Either way, it sounds like fun. Click for tickets! Go on the Town with Cheyenne JacksonJune 12 at Town HallIt’s Friday, so it’s time to celebrate. No, that doesn’t mean burnt microwavable popcorn and the latest Netflix documentary. We can top that. Head to Town Hall, where the super-talented Cheyenne Jackson is performing a new show backed by his band. And if that isn’t enough of a treat, guess who his guest star is? Laura Benanti! Why would you deprive your life of joy? Get going! Click for tickets! Take Vanessa Hudgens & More HomeAvailable June 9The headline is a joke, of course. That’d be weird and probably illegal. (Plus, you haven’t vacuumed in ages.) But you can take Hudgens’ work on the cast recording of Gigi home. And if you’re looking for variety, get the cast recording of the revival of The King & I and Finding Neverland: The Album, a companion concept album to the hit show featuring performances by Christina Aguilera, Jon Bon Jovi, and the musical’s headliner Matthew Morrison. Get Smash-ed with Katharine McPheeJune 11, check local listingsUnless you were one of the lucky few, you missed McPhee in the Bombshell reunion concert, so catch up with the singer-actress on Live with Kelly & Michael, where she just might perform a number or two from Bombshell. And maybe this will be the encouragement you need to stop dressing in black and subsisting on a diet of peanut butter cups and start living! McPhee, Megan Hilty, and everyone else in the Smash family want that too. Find your light. View Commentslast_img read more

New $50 Billion Development Bank’s First Investment Comes Online: A Solar Project in Shanghai

first_img FacebookTwitterLinkedInEmailPrint分享Quartz:In 2015, the BRICS nations—Brazil, Russia, India, China, and South Africa—set up a jointly funded alternative to the World Bank and the International Monetary Fund, calling it the New Development Bank. This past weekend, they watched as the first project it financed began operations.Symbolically, the project involves solar energy, generating power from distributed rooftop installations in the Lingang industrial area of Shanghai. That’s in line with one of the bank’s founding goals: to finance sustainable development projects in the BRICS and other emerging markets.Based in Shanghai, the NDB was established with an initial subscribed capital of $50 billion, distributed equally among BRICS members. So far it’s approved about a dozen projects.The Lingang project was made possible by an NDB loan for 525 million yuan (about $80 million). Today it’s just getting started, with only a fraction of the eventual 100 megawatts of capacity going online Saturday (Sept. 2). When complete—in less than three years, if all goes to plan—it could reduce greenhouse emissions by up to 120,000 metric tons (132,277 tons), according to Xinhua (link in Chinese). The solar installations will be distributed over 1.5 sq km (.58 sq miles) of rooftops.The project meshes with China’s ambition to dominate in renewable-energy technologies, and to address the problem of its smog-filled skies. China is the world’s largest market for solar panels (measured by the number of panels), and it’s home to the world’s biggest floating solar farm.The first BRICS bank project to be up and running is, symbolically, a renewable energy plant New $50 Billion Development Bank’s First Investment Comes Online: A Solar Project in Shanghailast_img read more

The Law Center and Campus will be a major hub of legal activity for Tampa Bay,” said Dean Gary Vause.“Stetson’s Law Center and Campus is a long awaited dream that will soon become a reality and complete Tampa’s goal as a center for academic excellence,” said Tampa Mayor Dick Greco.The three-story, 73,500-square-foot main building to be built at the 1700 N. Tampa Street site just off Interstate 275 will reflect the same Spanish-Mediterranean architecture of Stetson’s Gulfport campus, including a tower that will overlook downtown Tampa.Agreements have been negotiated for the Florida Second District Court of Appeal and the Hillsborough County Bar Association to reside on the campus. Stetson also will offer classes for part-time students at the Tampa location, as well as continuing legal education workshops for practicing attorneys and business professionals.The first floor will house classrooms, a state-of-the-art courtroom and a full law library; the second, proposed chambers and offices for judges and court employees for the Second District Court of Appeal, and the third floor will be reserved for future law school use. Stetson purchased the property for $1.2 million and spent another $427,000 to demolish the former Tampa police station on the site. The estimated building cost is $9.23 million.last_img read more
