Hallmark Data Systems, a b-to-b focused fulfillment bureau, has partnered with ePublishing, a cloud-based enterprise publishing technology provider to integrate audience data services. The partnership will offer a new platform-level solution that combines Hallmark’s demographic audience data tech with ePublishing’s behavioral data collection capabilities.The partnership is a direct acknowledgement of the growing need of merging the various forms of customer data—particularly in integrating behavioral, purchasing and engagement metrics at the customer level.Fulfillment companies in general have been much more open to third-party partnerships as publishers have begun to drive more data collection efforts and are looking for ways to connect that information with specific customers. And with bottom-up, made-from-scratch development efforts that are costly and difficult to produce quickly, fulfillment providers are often looking to partner with tech expertise that’s already in the market.Key to that data collection is the ability to store it in a single repository, and both companies say that this new solution is a data-level integration that will populate Hallmark’s Illume database.According to a spokesperson, the combined service will be sold by each of the companies.

(PhysOrg.com) — A technique developed by a Californian company, Simbol Mining, will enable the valuable mineral lithium, widely used in high-density batteries, to be reclaimed from the hot waste water produced by a geothermal power plant in California. The consumption of lithium has been increasing globally, and is predicted to triple by 2020 as lithium battery use increases, electric cars become more widespread, and as more batteries are used to store electricity produced by solar and wind sources.The traditional sources of lithium are soil and brine dried in salt ponds, especially in Chile and Bolivia, but the waste water produced at the geothermal power plant, which can be millions of gallons a day, is equally rich in lithium. Extracting the lithium from geothermal waste water is easier than extracting from brine, and less water-intensive than extracting from soil, and the process has a smaller environment footprint because the water has already been extracted to generate electricity. The geothermal plant is built on top of the San Andreas Fault at the Salton Sea in southeastern California, around 80 miles east of San Diego. The plant is one of a cluster of geothermal plants that draw hot water at up to 360C from underground to the surface to produce the steam that drives electricity-generating turbines. The hot waste water produced in the process is salty and rich in silicates and minerals such as lithium.The presence of silicates presented problems in the extraction because they tend to clog equipment, but Simbol now uses a technique developed in the Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory in Livermore, California to remove the silicates from the waste by precipitation and filtration. The filtered water is then passed over a chemical resin that draws lithium ions from the solution to form lithium chloride, and then the remaining solution is returned to the ground. Lithium chloride is not a suitable form for shipping, so sodium carbonate is added, and the mixture forms lithium carbonate, which is easier to transport.The extraction process is partially driven by the heat of the waste water, which means the environmental impacts are fairly minimal, according to geologist Michael McKibben of the University of California at Riverside.Simbol Mining has tested the process fully and is now constructing a pilot plant, which is expected to produce around a tonne of lithium per month. If the pilot is successful, more ambitious plants will be built. Chief Executive Officer of Simbol, Luka Erceg, said he also expects the method to be used to extract other minerals such as manganese and zinc, since the Salton Sea is rich in minerals having, as Erceg said, “half the periodic table” in the water.Simbol Mining’s project has been aided by $6.7 million in funding from Firelake Capital and Mohr Davidow Ventures.More information: www.simbolmining.com/© 2009 PhysOrg.com Researchers power up new lithium battery for hybrid cars Lithium ingots with a thin layer of black oxide tarnish.

Pint-sized car engine promises high efficiency (PhysOrg.com) — The best hybrid cars of today can only deliver about 48 miles per gallon. By using this newly developed fuel injection system a test vehicle was measured at achieving 64 miles per gallon in highway driving. This is approximately a 50% increase in fuel efficiency in a gasoline engine. More information: Transonic Combustion: www.tscombustion.com/ Explore further The fuel injection system was developed by a startup company Transonic Combustion and their goal is to increase fuel efficiency of existing gasoline engines. The cost for this ultra-efficient system would be as much as high-end fuel injection systems currently on the market today.By heating and pressurizing gasoline before injecting it into the combustion chamber places it into a supercritical state that allows for very fast and clean combustion. This in turn decreases the amount of fuel needed to run the vehicle. The gasoline is also treated with a catalyst to further enhance combustion.What makes Transonic’s fuel injection system different from a direct injection is that it uses supercritical fluids and requires no spark to ignite the fuel. The supercritical fluid mixes quickly with air when it’s injected into the cylinder. The heat and pressure, in the cylinder, alone is enough to cause the fuel to combust without a spark.Ignition timing happens just when the piston reaches the optimal point, so that the maximum amount of energy is converted into mechanical movement of the engine.Proprietary software has also been developed by Transonic Combustion that allows the system to adjust the fuel injection precisely depending on engine load. Transonic Combustion is currently testing their new fuel injection system with three automakers. One key concern is the life of the engine when it’s subject to high pressures and temperatures. The company plans to manufacture the system themselves and not license the technology. Transonic Combustion plans to build its first factory in 2013, and place the technology into production cars by 2014. © 2010 PhysOrg.com Citation: Fuel-injection System That Delivers 64 Miles Per Gallon (2010, March 10) retrieved 18 August 2019 from https://phys.org/news/2010-03-fuel-injection-miles-gallon.html The new fuel-injection system is placed into this sports car which weighs approximately the same as the Toyota Prius hybrid and has similar aerodynamics. The new fuel injection system gets better gas mileage than the Prius hybrid. Credit: Transonic Combustion This document is subject to copyright.

Kolkata: The denial of basic healthcare to transgenders has been brought to light through a documentary “Beyond Blue and Pink” that seeks to promote dialogue and discussion towardsA creating a trans-friendly way of accessing West Bengal’s healthcare system. The members of a city-based NGO, Civilian Welfare Foundation, Indrani Kar and Shuvojit Moulik, had undertaken a study titled “Basic Medical Facility for transgenders-a crucial step towards improving public health” in 2014. Also Read – Heavy rain hits traffic, flights They came across the plight of many members of the community, and thereafter filmed the documentary to reach out and sensitize a larger audience. One of the directors of the documentary, Debgopal Mondal, who himself is a part of the LGBT community, mentioned that there was a lot of talk on Article 377, rights of the community and choice of partners, but while making the film he realised that the real issues of the transgenders were not being highlighted. Also Read – Speeding Jaguar crashes into Merc, 2 B’deshi bystanders killed For instance, there is lack of trans-friendly public urinals. “The whole system is running on a binary mindset, anything different or outside the box is challenged and resisted,” said Abhirupa Kar of Civilian Welfare Foundation. Transgenders are subject to ‘trans-phobia’, discrimination, harassment and mockery even during getting basic treatment in West Bengal and other parts of India. “I have witnessed doctors being intolerant, insensitive and callous due to which the people like us (transgender) are becoming scared to visit the doctors. As we face constant discrimination, we are not at at mental ease and as we are deprived of basic physical treatment, the ailments are aggravating,” said Anurag Maitrayee, a city-based gender activist. “In our society, we are taught to hold guns but not hands. The documentary made me feel that the things shared are about me and I could relate to it,” Maitrayee added after watching the film on Friday. According to psychiatrist Madhurima Ghosh, the constant denial of even the basic rights results in anxiety, depression and other mental disorders. “Sensitisation of parents is important; it can only be done once a psychologist is able to able build rapport with them. We cannot directly do it as the stigma is deep-rooted,” said Ghosh, who is attached to AIIMS, Delhi. She said the Indian Psychiatric Society (IPS) will conduct inclusive workshops to sensitise the medical practitioners, psychologists and common people. People need to stop terming the third genders as being ill. Even parents are misled by the healthcare system. “My parents took a lot of trouble to cure me at first, showed me to various doctors, took me to Vellore as well,” says Sourabh Das, a transgender at Amitie Trust. “Even doctors in Vellore did not know about transgenders and I was given electric shocks and even put in an asylum to be cured. Now my mother understands that this is not abnormal or a disease and she participates in workshops to understand it more,” added Das.

Selim said the BJP is well aware that they would not win the Lok Sabha Elections. Thus they are trying to create an unstable situation to scare the voters as well as the Trinamool supporters and workers. Till Tuesday night, none of the accused persons could be traced. The police have initiated an extensive search operation to nab the accused persons.
