Running or managing a business can bring a number of important responsibilities, all of which might tie in some way towards creating the right working environment that can be conducive for efficiency, productivity, and peace of mind. Creating a safe, secure working environment can entail identifying credible threats and making provisions that can help mitigate those threats. In offices and places of business, fire hazards represent one of the most important threats and this is why it can be a smart move to deploy fire safety and suppression methods in your workplace.
There can be many ways you can create a working environment that is properly protected from fire hazards. While some steps might work towards preventing fires, others can come into play when a fire does start and help minimize the damage. Fire hazards can cause a lot of damage including injuries, loss of life, and damage to property. This is why businesses take fire safety seriously and do all they can in order to ou
In today’s working world, Millennials have gotten something of a bad rap. They are considered to lack job loyalty, and have even often been referred to as the “job hopping generation.” This statement is based in fact, however, as up to 60% of all Millennial employees have actually stated that they would be more than willing to take a new job elsewhere and leave their current one behind at the drop of a hat, should the new job provide them a better set of opportunities and even benefits.
However, Millennials should really not be blamed for this behavior. After all, it is something that has been going on for quite some time now. Even back in the June of 2015, more than two and a half million employees voluntarily decided to leave their jobs. From the year prior, the June of 2014, this marked an increase in such activity by as much as very nearly one quarter. And in the time that has passed us by since, this is a problem that has only continued to grow – and will likely only continue
Both teachers and professional raters are resting their eyes as the prepare for the upcoming days of scoring student writing papers. Starting with the text dependent papers written by sixth graders and moving on to eighth graders next, the group is preparing for the biggest scoring even t of the year: the four days they spend reading the high school papers. Those high school papers serve as a graduation requirement so it is important to note that the ultimate goal is to have everyone scoring as consistently as possible to make sure every writer is given equal opportunity.
With an option to take a 60 minute lunch and score until 4:00 p.m. or the alternative of taking a 30 minute lunch and scoring until 3:30 p.m., the room full of scorers all started at 8:00 am. Selected to participate in writing professional development, the team consists of a combination of current teachers, retired educators, and substitute teachers who work together to rate the district’s students’ papers each y
Many people know the benefits to APIs (Application Program Interface), but few know the benefits to API management. If you have a business, API management is becoming essential in this digital age. Here’s why.
What is an API?
An API is communication or an interface between a business and a server that can help a business create software. An API can be used on the web, on an operating system, computer hardware, software library, or database system. A good API makes it easier to create computer programs by providing all the tools that a programmer needs.
In other words, you’re using APIs all of the time. If you use the Facebook app or check the weather on your phone, you’re using APIs. The app connects to the Internet and sends the data to the server, which retrieves and interprets it before performing an action and sending it back to you in a readable way.
What is API management?
API management is when an API is safely designed, published, documented,
This is a busy day in the district.
As a small group of professional raters gather to learn the new rubric for scoring text dependent writing, the high schools thought the third largest district in the state are on an altered schedule. Seniors and freshmen get to have the day off while the juniors take the practice ACT test in the morning. The sophomores are taking the writing assessment that the professionals scorers are preparing for.
All of this testing, of course, means that the technology staff in both the high schools and the district office are on full alert. With the integration of the latest API management tools, including custom build micrservices requests will need to operate flawlessly. The first time that the practice ACT will be taken online and the fourth year in a row where the writing assessment will be completed online, there will be technology
Ever since Nuclear Magnetic Resonance (NMR) was first used in the mid-twentieth century, it became a crucial tool in modern chemistry. NRM has many useful applications for pharmaceutical and biotechnology companies.
It is projected that the global pharmaceutical industry will be worth $1,170 billion by 2021. As such, pharmaceutical companies are entrenched in a drug discovery race in order to increase their market share.
When it comes to drug discovery, Nuclear Magnetic Resonance (NMR) is an invaluable asset. By using spectrometers, scientists are able to analyze samples at a molecular level without damaging the sample. NMR spectrometers use permanent or electromagnets and can range from 60 MHz to 100 MHz.
In simple terms, these machines facilitate an in-depth analysis of molecular structures by providing different components of a molecule such as type, number of parts, and how they combine to form the molecule.
However, using low field NRM spectr
