EnerWatch Systems Offers Energy And Cost Saving Tips To Schools
Energy conservation today is an important element to any school district’s budget. As the cost of energy increases, so the does operating cost of schools. In today’s world, these factors can wreak havoc on the bottom line of a budget. School district facility managers often have the inflexible task of keeping the maintenance budget down and also conserving energy. This is especially important during “occupational mode.” Many will implement people-driven systems that rely on the users of the facility to maintain good energy conservation practices. But often, even though efforts are put forth, the measure falls short of its goal. Companies such as EnerWatch Systems™ work directly with a school district and the individual school’s facility manager to implement technology driven systems that measure, record and analyze all aspects of energy usage, and concurrently execute energy conservation programs that educate the faculty and student body to assist in controlling their energy costs throughout the school year. The EnerWatch Monitoring System™ uses proven technology along with proven methods to lower the utilities immediately. This works in two ways: the first is an “energy watchdog” and the second as a preventive safeguard. The EnerWatch Monitoring System™ detects, amongst other environmental conditions, problematic issues such as possible mold growth, overheated server rooms or water pipes ready to burst due to foul weather conditions, which in turn, would cause school to be closed or cancelled until the occurrence has been restored. In such events, not only does the student body and faculty become affected but also a portion of the budget now will be used for clean up rather than student activities.
According to EnerWatch Systems™, a few immediate tips schools should consider include:
• Turn out the lights
• Stop dripping faucets and fixtures
• Close the doors
• Change the temperature settings in less used rooms
• Get students involved
• Reuse and recycle

The year 2011 will be a trend-defining year for call center services. Experts feel that this New Year will take ahead what was started in 2010. Some of the trends that started off this year will come to fruition next year. For example, this year touched upon customer service more in terms of quality than cost cuts. The BPO industry was built up on the express principle of cost cuts. Business firms in America and Europe were looking for call centers that would take care of their customer service without sitting too heavily on the expenses side of the ledger. However, the recession changed all of that. With business firms emerging from financial crunches, they are now looking for quality work so that they can offer a different experience for their customers and business associates.
Call centers working out of third world countries hire cheap labor to do the work. There is a consistent problem about the quality of call center services that they do. Most of the agents have a problem with their accent. Telemarketing agents who are working in the American and European consumer markets cannot afford to be talking in accents that consumers don’t understand. You can easily find hundreds of complaints against the customer service offered by these call center units. The next year will look to bring these complaints down. Customer care is the only way you can keep your customer base intact. With more discounts and rebates thrown their way from rivals and competitors, you cannot hope to keep them under your umbrella unless you satisfy their association with your brand.
Self-service call center services will also be a trending point in 2011. Self-service options like interactive voice response systems give the users the impetus to shape their own experience at the inbound call center. The list of options on the IVRS help the callers to get to the information you’re looking for without any waste of time. The use of self-service options at the BPO not just saves time for the callers. It brings about a lot of efficiency at the lead generation. The time spent per call goes down and so does the hold time. You can deal with more calls at the same time and because the users choose the information they are looking for, the First Call Resolution (FCR) goes up as well. Self-service can also mean web-enabled telemarketing services where users can choose their options from the websites of the brand.
The year 2011 will be the year when customer service will become a more efficient way of conducting business. As of now, BPO companies are making a conscious effort to cut down on hold times and the response time of the answering service agents. The use of quality CRM software makes it possible for the agents at the inbound call center to find out the solution to the caller’s problem. Improved technology that pops up the required information about the caller and the problem on the agent’s computer screen has revolutionized the response system at call centers.

White Ants or Termites have been around since the time of the dinosaurs. Termites mostly feed on dead plant material generally in the form of wood, leaf litter, soil, or animal dung, and about 10% of the estimated 4,000 species are economically significant as pests that can cause serious structural damage to buildings, plantation forests or crops. Termites are major detritivores, particularly in the tropical and subtropical regions, and their recycling of wood and other plant matter is of considerable ecological importance.
Colonies of termite eat non-stop, 24 hours a day or seven days a week! They have large wings that they shed once they have found a good place to build a nest. White ants cause up to $2 billion in damage per year! All Termites are social insects and raise their young in a group. The total weight of all of the termites in the world is more than the weight of all the human beings in the world. There are generally four types of termites occurs, they are-
• Dampwood termites – Dampwood termites are normally larger in size than other termite species. Their colonies don’t have workers. The younger termites in their colony called “false workers.” Dampwood termites do not carry disease and don’t usually damage buildings because there is not enough water in the wood. To avoid these termites, make sure water drains away from your house and keep damp wood away from your home.
• Drywood termites – they are light brown in color. They form colonies u to 2,500 members. Drywood Termite colonies don’t have workers, therefore the younger termites, called “false workers”, who do all the work for the colony. Drywood Termites eat dry wood, wallpaper, plastics and fabric made from plants, in short we can say that all materials which is made up of cellulose. These kind of termites do not require moisture or contact with the soil. These termites build nest and dig tunnels in buildings. These tunnels cause major damage because the wooden support beams become weak and building can fall down. We can prevent them by sealing all the cracks and crevices around the outside of our home.
• Formosan termites- they are the yellowish brown in color and can be up to 300 feet long. These termites can be tens to thousands in single colony. They are divided into three groups: workers, soldiers and reproductives. They are known to be the largest and destructive kind of termites. Formosan termites live in huge underground colonies and build mud nest inside the walls of a buildings. They are known to eat a lot of wood and unconditional damage to the house.
• Subterranean termites- the colonies of these termites can have up to 2 million members. They are creamy brown in color. They eat wood, wallpaper, plastics and fabric made from plants. They are the most destructive kind of termites, as they damage not only wood but also other expensive thing in the house.

Room air freshener adapted to be used in connection with a register vent. The structure of the freshener is especially formed to be attached to the vent register and includes a formed handle adapted to keep the freshener material adjacent to the grid of the register vent. A certain range in the amount of mass of the freshener is required for a certain volume of air for best operation of the freshener.
This invention pertains to air fresheners such as may be used in rooms required to be heated or cooled for living or working. It is related to the device described in applicant’s co-pending application. In contrast to that device, the present invention includes specific forms for attachment to vents used to vent air from building furnaces or air conditioners into room areas.
Unpleasant odors are frequent in many rooms in houses and places of work. Typical of such rooms would be restrooms, bathrooms, rooms designed for entrance into farm houses from livestock units, rooms specifically designated for use by tobacco smokers, etc. The distress caused by such odors can be alleviated by use of various types of air fresheners including such as may be hanging in the air in the room or which can be placed in receptacles.
By the present invention, the freshener material can be introduced into the room by being carried in the air from an air conditioner or a forced air type furnace. The air freshening material is carried on a clip which is readily fastened into the usual type of outlet vent register for such a unit, and this assures that the air freshening material is properly spread throughout the room. The clip is designed to hold itself in place on the register.
It is also necessary that the clip be designed to provide a proper relationship between the mass of the clip and the volume of air passing through the clip. The clip is designed to provide for such proper relation.
To insert the clip, then, the legs are inserted between the louvers and straddling the control vane. The process of insertion is continued until the sloping neck part of the handle reaches the louvers. At that time, the clip will be tilted relative to the register as the clip is further inserted until the tongue can be inserted between a pair of adjacent louvers. At that time the clip should be in a working plane contact with the tips of the louvers opposite the outer surface of the register. The handle can then be pressed into a place so that the tongue extends to the adjacent louver to hold the entire clip in place. When this point is reached, the clip is again free of the control vane of the register so that the slot is no longer of great consequence except as it relates to the amount of space through which the air passes.
It should also be noted that by the formation of the handle having the sloped portion 13, the use of the device in a ceiling register is made easy. After insertion, the body of the freshener will simply lie against the louvers which form the slots in the register, and when removal becomes desirable, that removal is made easy by the shape of the handle.
The opening provides an expedient by which the clip may be adapted to an alternative use on a ceiling fan. It will be readily apparent that the clip can be used on the stem of such a fan simply by spreading the legs to open the slot slightly and to straddle the stem. As the clip is moved, the stem slides into the opening. This can be proportioned to fit snugly over any standard fan stem and the clip thus held in place in a position substantially perpendicular to the axis of the fan stem. Motion of the air as induced by the fan can then cause that air to pick up the scent from the clip and spread the scent around the room.
Thus, the invention provides an air freshener adapted to different uses in a convenient inexpensive clip form.

What do you do when your big new client asks to have a meeting with you and for you to be the host? Book the meeting room, presumably – if you have one, that is.
Nowadays, it’s becoming increasingly common for many businesses to be run straight from home. After all, so many of them operate solely on the internet that it’s just not necessary to have an office space for people to congregate in. They can just stay in touch via phone, instant messaging, email and myriad other technological advances that have made the necessity to be together in person moot. Of course, that’s all well and good when you’re just working amongst yourselves and getting on with your various tasks, but what exactly is it that you do when a client asks to meet with you?
It’s not a good idea to ask to have the meeting on your client’s turf. After all, they’re hiring you on the expectation that you are a professional, go-getting firm that probably has its own office. Explaining that you work at home doesn’t exactly give off a great impression, especially if the client is asking for the meeting to decide whether or not your company is the right one for the job. Competition is fierce out there, so you have to make sure you have everything on offer that your main rivals do – and thankfully there’s a way around this particular dilemma that is simple and effective.
Don’t have a meeting room? Hire one! There are plenty available in many cities and they come in a wide range of shapes and sizes, with various amenities and equipment such as AV and video conferencing, wall screens, projectors and the opportunity to order in food and coffee for yourself, your colleagues and your clients. By renting out a meeting room, you’ll be able to give the impression that you have your very own office space, and you might even find that you actually like the idea of owning your own. Of course, office space is easy to rent out too and, in buildings that are run by a rental company, sometimes even offer a person in reception that can direct clients to your space efficiently and professionally.
Forget worrying about winning clients through the lack of meeting rooms and simply rent one out – then all you have to worry about is that perfect pitch.

The best way to make sure that your children are getting proper nutrients and minerals is to stress the importance of eating a variety of healthy foods. When preparing a meal, include foods from the different food groups that will provide nutrients which complement each other. The easy and sure way is to eat vegetables, fresh fruits, lean meats, fish, whole grains, nuts, legumes, milk, and cheese with each meal. This healthy talk about preparing and eating may work with adults but does it really work with children and adults. If you are looking for instant gratification, you may be disappointed because the truth works over time. If you introduce the different foods over time, steadily, you will see results.

It is best to introduce new ways of eating and new food items to children like fruit and veggies slowly but consistently. Your child may need to try one vegetable or fruit more than once over a long period of time. Children don’t always eat the way that is healthy or what we would like them to eat. A healthy diet is equally important for children as for adults. For kids who do not get a hefty dose of nutrition from a healthy diet you might consider children’s vitamins as a good way to ensure that they get enough vitamins and minerals as this can be a very simple solution. Parents need to remember that taking vitamins as a supplement is not a cure all for an unhealthy diet. Rather it is an addition to healthy food choices for your kids. If there are homegrown veggies or fruit then it is the best and children will love it. The dairy products and poultry products are rich source of calcium and proteins that is important for healthy bones, nerves, and muscles. Also it consists of zinc and chromium which is important for our immune system and carbohydrate metabolism respectively.

The design of this study reflects what Creswell (2003) calls a sequential explanatory multi-method strategy. This is a design which ‘is characterized by the collection and analysis of quantitative data followed by the collection and analysis of qualitative data’ (p. 215). Specifically, the study reported here adopted a survey approach in which largely quantitative data were first collected through a questionnaire. A sub-sample of the teachers who completed the questionnaire then participated in Merrell Sandal a second phase of data collection through which their questionnaire responses were explored and illustrated in more depth qualitatively [see Bryman for a detailed analysis of rationales for multi-method research]. I discuss the different forms of data below.
In the form of a questionnaire, the cross-sectional survey allows large amounts of data to be collected efficiently, economically, and in a standardized manner [see, for example, Aldridge and Levine (2001)]. The questionnaire used in this study (Appendix 1) had six sections, focusing on respondents’ conceptions of what counts as research, views about the characteristics of good quality research, perceptions of their institutional culture in relation to research, engagement in reading research, engagement in doing research, and background information. The range of themes covered in the instrument was informed by issues raised in the literature reviewed earlier. The instrument was piloted with a group of 21 English language teachers and its length, wording and organization revised in line with their feedback. Questionnaire data were collected from a non-probability sample of 505 teachers of English in 13 countries. My goal was to obtain a broad perspective on the issues under study and with Merrell Boot this goal in mind I approached contacts in a number of ELT contexts around the world who were in a position to invite practising teachers (that was my only criterion for teacher participation) of English to complete the questionnaire. These contacts played a vital facilitative role in this study by providing access to respondents as well as by advising on which mode of administering the questionnaire hard copy, web-based, or e-mail attachment would work best in their particular contexts [all three modes of administration were used in the study see Couper (2005) for a discussion of the use of technology in survey research]. The closed questionnaire data were analyzed statistically using SPSS 12.
Of course, the many advantages of questionnaires are countered by certain limitations, particularly when respondents are being asked to report their beliefs [see Borg (2006c) for a discussion of meth-odological issues involved in using self-report instruments to study teachers' beliefs]. Questionnaires, also, often generate superficial answers and do not allow in-depth exploration of particular issues. In response to these concerns, direct questionnaire items of the type ‘what are your beliefs/views about research?’ or ‘what is research?’ were avoided; additionally, the questionnaires were supplemented with qualitative data, which I now describe.
