In a world where the energy

crisis is a daily topic of

conversation, it’s no surprise

that people are looking for new

and innovative ways to power

our planet. Hydroelectricity has

been around for centuries, but

could it be the answer to our

current energy woes?

Hydroelectricity is a type of

renewable energy that uses

water to generate electricity.

The water is stored in reservoirs

and then released through

turbines, which spin and

generate power.

A hydroelectricity power plant

produces electricity by using

the kinetic energy of flowing

water. The current energy crisis

is a result of the world’s reliance

on fossil fuels, which produce

greenhouse gases that

contribute to climate change.

Hydroelectricity is a renewable

The CBK Hardware

Development Trend for

More Than 100 Years

How CBK Hardware Development Has Changed Over 100 Years

For more than 100 years, Co Ban Kiat (CBK) Hardware Inc. has been the most

reliable distributor of hardware and home improvement items in the Philippines.

Headed by Johnny Cobankiat, the company aims to make the lives of Filipinos

better with a continuous supply of top-of-the-line home and hardware solutions.

Co Ban Kiat Hardware Inc. started as a humble store in 1920 in the heart of

Binondo, Manila’s Chinatown, with the belief to provide Filipinos access to quality

products. Through the years, it transformed into a huge corporation that is now

dubbed the “House of Home Improvements.”

Thanks to CBK Hardware, Filipinos no longer have to settle for cheap and lowquality

products when it comes to meeting their needs at home or in the office.

While the branded items they sell are expensive, the company wants more

Filipinos to add more value to their money with high-quality products from the

world’s most trusted brands. With this, you no longer need to buy the same

product over and over again.

But how did CBK Hardware Inc., who had the modest beginnings turn into one of

the prime suppliers of first-rate, life-improving hardware and home improvement

materials in the Philippines? Let’s look back in the Philippines’ history and how it

molded CBK Hardware’s mission through time.

It was on December 08, 1941, when Japan made a surprise attack in the Philippines

right after 10 hours of Pearl Harbor bombing. Began with an aerial strike, the

arrival, and the attack of Japanese ground troops on the north and south sides

of Manila. Because of the inability of the Philippine and American troops to fight

back and protect the city, the Japanese occupied Manila on January 2, 1942.


The war between the Japanese troops and the United States-Philippine forces in

the country lasted for several years until Japan’s formal surrender on September 2,

1945. By the time the fight was over, the Philippines suffered great loss with massive

physical destruction and an estimated million Filipinos were killed during the postwar

era and Manila was severely destroyed.

Excellence in Metering






hydroelectric power plant harnesses the energy of moving water to

generate electricity. Water is an abundant and renewable resource, making

hydroelectricity a key part of a low-carbon future. Hydroelectric plants

are efficient and have low operating costs. In addition, they have a small

environmental footprint and can provide other benefits to the local community, such

as recreation and flood control.


Water treatment




The energy crisis

The global energy crisis is one of

the most pressing issues facing the

world today. With traditional sources

of energy like coal and oil dwindling,

it is becoming increasingly important

to find alternative sources of energy.

Hydroelectric power plants are one

such alternative source of energy.

Hydroelectric power plants work

by harnessing the power of water.

Water is stored in a reservoir behind

a dam. When the water is released,

it spins a turbine which generates

electricity. Hydroelectric power plants

are considered to be one of the most

efficient and environmentally friendly

methods of generating electricity.

Despite their many advantages,

hydroelectric power plants have

some drawbacks. They can be

expensive to build and maintain, and

they can have a negative impact on

local ecosystems. But despite these

drawbacks, hydroelectric power plants

offer a promising solution to the global

energy crisis.

What is Hydroelectric Power


Hydroelectric power plants are one of

the most common types of renewable

energy plants. They use the kinetic

energy of flowing water to generate


There are three main types of

hydroelectric power plants: run-of-theriver,

storage, and pumped-storage.

Run-of-the-river plants are the most

common type. They use the natural flow

of water to generate electricity. Storage

plants store water in a reservoir and

release it when the demand for electricity

is high. Pumped storage plants pump

water from a lower reservoir to an upper

irrigation reservoir during periods of

low demand. The water is released

from the upper reservoir back into the

lower reservoir when the demand for

electricity is high.

Hydroelectric power plants are a clean

and efficient source of electricity. They

have low operating costs and produce

no air pollution or greenhouse gases.

The three components of a

hydroelectric power plant

A hydroelectric power plant is a facility

that converts the kinetic energy of

flowing water into electricity. There

are three main components of a

hydroelectric power plant: the dam, the

powerhouse, and the penstock.

The dam is perhaps the most important

component of a hydroelectric power

plant. The dam stores water in a

reservoir and releases it when needed

to generate electricity. Without a dam,

there would be no way to store the

water necessary to produce electricity.

The powerhouse is where the magic

happens. The powerhouse contains

the turbines and generators that

convert the kinetic energy of flowing

water into electricity. The layout of the

powerhouse can vary depending on

the specific design of the plant, but

all powerhouses have one thing in

common: they need to be located near

the base of the dam so that they can

access the water stored in the reservoir.

Types of Hydropower Plants

There are three types of hydropower

plants: impoundment, diversion, and

pumped storage.

Impoundment hydropower plants are

the most common type of hydropower

plant. They use a dam to store water in

a reservoir. The water is released from

the reservoir and flows through a turbine,

which spins a generator to produce


Diversion hydropower plants (also known

as a run-of-river facility) divert water from

a river or stream into a pipeline (called

a penstock). The water flows through

the penstock and spins a turbine,

which activates a generator to produce


Pumped storage hydropower plants

store energy in the form of water in an

upper reservoir. Water is released from

the upper reservoir and flows through a

turbine, which activates a generator to

produce electricity.

How a hydroelectricity plant

works: the water cycle

A hydroelectric power plant uses the force

of moving water to generate electricity.

Here’s how it works:

Water from a river or reservoir flows into

the power plant through a pipe called

a penstock. The water pressure in the

penstock turns a wheel called a turbine,

which activates a generator that produces


The turbine and generator are connected

by shafts and gears, and as the turbine

spins, it turns the generator to create an

electric current. The movement of the

water also powers a second wheel called

a governor, which regulates the speed of

the turbine and keeps it from spinning too


After passing through the turbine, the

water is discharged back into the river

through another pipe called an outlet

works or tailrace.

How Much Power Can Hydroelectric

Power Plant Generate?

A hydroelectric power plant can generate

a lot of power. The potential energy of

water is converted into kinetic energy,







Standard Pipe



which then turns a turbine to generate

electricity. Hydroelectric power plants

can generate up to 1,000 megawatts of

power. That’s enough to power a city of

about 500,000 people.

The amount of power that a hydroelectric

power plant can generate depends on

the volume of water flow and the height

of the drop.

Hydroelectric power plants can have a

very high capacity factor, meaning they

can generate a lot of electricity relative

to their size. In fact, hydroelectric power

plants are some of the most efficient

generators of electricity in the world.

The average hydroelectric power plant

in the United States has a capacity of

about 79 megawatts (MW). But there are

some much larger plants, like the Grand

Coulee Dam in Washington state, which

has a capacity of 6809 MW.

How Hydroelectric Power Plant is


Hydroelectric power plants are one of

the most commonly used renewable

energy sources. The potential energy of

falling water is converted into electricity,

which is then transmitted to homes and


The process begins with water being

diverted from a river or lake into a pipeline,

called a penstock. The water then flows

down the penstock and into the turbine,

causing it to spin. This spinning motion

turns a generator, which produces


The electricity produced by the

hydroelectric power plant is then

transmitted through high-voltage power

lines to substations. From there, it is

distributed to homes and businesses.


Pros and Cons of Hydroelectric

Power Plants

Hydroelectric power plants have been

used for centuries to generate electricity.

They are a renewable source of energy

that does not produce greenhouse gases

or other pollutants. Hydroelectric power

plants can provide a significant portion of

a country’s electricity needs.

However, hydroelectric power plants

also have some drawbacks. They can

be expensive to build and maintain.

They can also impact local ecosystems,

altering water flows and causing habitat


The Advantages of hydroelectricity

• Hydroelectricity is renewable and


• Hydropower plants are a reliable source

of energy

• Hydroelectricity is efficient and costeffective

• Hydroelectricity has a small

environmental footprint

• The hydroelectric power plant is versatile

and can be used in many different ways

• Hydroelectricity is a clean source of


The Disadvantages of


• Hydroelectric stations have high upfront


• Large hydropower plant has a long lead

Is Hydroelectric Power Plant

Enough to Save the Environment?

Development of the hydroelectric power

plant has been one of the most significant

engineering feats of the 20th century. The

ability to generate electricity from water

has helped to meet the ever-growing

demand for energy while also providing

a cleaner alternative to fossil fuels. But is

hydroelectric power enough to save the


The hydroelectric power plant is a

renewable resource that does not emit

greenhouse gases or other pollutants into

the atmosphere. In addition, it uses less

water than traditional coal-fired power

plants. However, there are still some

environmental concerns associated with

hydroelectric power plants.

The construction of a hydroelectric power

plant can have a significant impact on the

local ecosystem. The damming of a river

can disrupt the natural flow of water and

affect fish and other aquatic creatures.

In addition, the reservoir created by the

dam can release methane gas, which is

a potent greenhouse gas.

The Cost of Building a

Hydroelectric Power Plant

The cost of building a hydroelectric

power plant can be significant. The initial

investment for the construction of a small

hydroelectric power plant can range

from $4 million to $6 million. The majority

of the cost is for civil works - such as

dam and powerhouse construction - and

equipment. The cost of installing a 1 MW

turbine in a new power plant is about

US$1.5 million. The total capital cost of

a typical large hydroelectric power plant

can be around US$10 million per MW of

installed capacity.

According to International Renewable

Energy Agency, the bulk of large-scale

hydropower projects that will be put into

operation between the years 2010 and

2019 will have total installation costs

ranging from a low of approximately

600 USD per kilowatt to a high of

approximately 4,500 USD per kilowatt.

On the other hand, because hydropower

is so dependent on the precise location

where it is installed, it is not unusual for

projects to have costs that fall outside

of this range. For instance, the price

of building hydropower at an existing

dam that was developed for other uses

could be as low as USD 450 per kilowatt.

On the other hand, projects located

in distant areas may be economically

viable despite the additional costs that

are incurred as a result of the absence of

local infrastructure. This is owing to the

fact that the prices of alternative power

generation or grid connection may be

significantly higher.

Hydroelectric Power Plant: The

Reality of “Green Energy”

A hydroelectric power plant is a “green

energy” source that many people believe

to be environmentally friendly. However,

the reality is that these plants can have a

significant impact on the environment.

Hydroelectric power plants use water to

generate electricity. The water is stored

in a reservoir and then released through

turbines to generate power. While the

process of generating electricity from

water is relatively clean, it can have a

significant impact on the environment.

The construction of hydroelectric dams

can alter local ecosystems and disrupt

the natural flow of rivers. In addition, the

release of water from reservoirs can cause

flooding downstream. Furthermore, the

operation of hydroelectric power plants

can affect fish populations by altering

their habitat and blocking their migration


Despite the potential environmental

impacts, hydroelectric power plants are a

renewable source of energy that can help

to reduce our reliance on fossil fuels.

The Latest Technologies in

Hydroelectric Power Plants

The latest technologies in hydroelectric

power plants are designed to increase

efficiency and reduce the environmental

impact of these plants. One such

technology is the use of high-efficiency

turbines, which can increase the plant’s

power output while reducing its water

consumption. Another promising

technology is the use of air-cooled

condensers, which can reduce the

amount of water required for cooling by

up to 90%.

Hydroelectric Power Plants


Hydroelectric power plants are

considered one of the most efficient

forms of energy production. They have

the ability to generate large amounts

of electricity with little environmental

impact. The efficiency of a hydroelectric

power plant is determined by its capacity

factor. The capacity factor is the ratio of

the actual output of a power plant over a

period of time to the maximum possible

output. For example, a power plant with

a capacity factor of 50% would produce

50% of its maximum possible output over

a given period of time.

The average capacity factor for

hydroelectric power plants in the United

States is about 55%. This means that,

on average, these plants are producing

about 55% of their maximum possible

output. There are several factors that can

affect the efficiency of many hydroelectric

power plants, including the type of turbine

used, the amount and height of water

available, and the size of the dam.



The future of hydroelectricity

power plants

The future of hydroelectricity power plants

is shrouded in potential but fraught with

uncertainty. The technology to generate

electricity from moving water has been

around for centuries, and hydropower

dams today provide a significant share

of the world’s electricity. But the future

of hydroelectricity is uncertain, as the

costs of construction and environmental

impacts of large dams continue to rise.

In the developed world, many countries

are moving away from large hydroelectric

dams in favor of smaller “run-of-theriver”

plants that have less impact on

the environment. In the developing

world, however, dam construction is still

seen as a way to bring electric power

to rural areas. China, in particular, has

been investing heavily in hydropower

facilities, with plans to more than double

its capacity by 2025.

The future of hydropower will largely be

determined by politics and economics.

Comparison of Hydroelectric

Power Plants with Other Types of

Energy Sources

A hydroelectric power plant uses

the kinetic energy of moving water

to generate renewable electricity.

Compared to other types of electrical

energy sources, hydroelectricity has a

number of advantages.

For one, it is a renewable resource.

Unlike fossil fuels, which are finite, water

is constantly being cycled through the

Earth’s hydrological cycle and can be

used again and again.

Hydroelectricity is also relatively efficient.

In a typical coal-fired power plant, only

about 30% of the energy in the coal is

converted into electricity; the rest is lost

as heat. By contrast, a hydroelectric

plant can convert as much as 90% of the

energy in moving water into electricity.

Finally, hydroelectricity produces no air

pollution or greenhouse gases. Burning

fossil fuels releases harmful pollutants

of moving water to generate electricity. In

contrast, a coal power plant burns coal to

produce heat that turns water into steam,

which then drives turbines that generate


Hydroelectric power plants are less

expensive to operate than coal power

plants, and they have a smaller

environmental footprint. Hydroelectric

power plants do not emit greenhouse

gases or other pollutants, and they require

less water than coal power plants.

Hydroelectric power plants are more

efficient than coal power plants, and

they can generate electricity around the

clock. However, hydroelectric power

plants require a reliable source of water,

and they can be impacted by drought


Hydroelectric Power Plant vs.

Nuclear Power Plant

The debate over which type of power

plant is better, hydroelectric or nuclear,

has been ongoing for years. Each type of

power plant has its own advantages and

disadvantages. Here is a comparison of

the two types of plants to help you decide

Hydroelectric power plants use the energy

of moving water to generate electricity.

They are usually located in areas where

there is a ready water supply, such as

rivers or dams. Hydroelectric power

plants are less expensive to build than

nuclear power plants, and they have very

low operating costs. They also have a

much smaller environmental impact than

nuclear plants. However, hydroelectric

plants can only generate electricity when

there is enough water flowing through

them, so they are not always reliable.

Nuclear power plants can provide

electricity generation by using the heat

from nuclear reactions to produce steam,

which drives turbines that generate


Hydroelectric Power Plant vs.

Tidal Barrage

There are many different types of

renewable energy sources available

today. Two of the most commonly used

are hydroelectric power plants and tidal

barrages. Both have their pros and

cons, so it is important to understand

the difference between the two before

deciding which is best for your needs.

Hydroelectric power plants rely on the

movement of water to generate electricity.

The water is usually stored in a reservoir

and then released through a turbine to

generate power. Tidal barrages use the

natural ebb and flow of tides to generate

electricity. A dam is built across a bay or

estuary, and as the tide comes in, water

is trapped behind the dam. When the tide

goes out, the water is released through

turbines to generate power.

Hydroelectric power plants are generally

more expensive to build than tidal


Hydroelectric Power Plant vs.

Solar Power Plant

Hydroelectric power plants use the

energy of moving water to generate

electricity. They are very efficient and

have low operating costs. However, they

require a large amount of land and can

impact the environment.

Solar power plants use the energy of

the sun to generate electricity. They



are more expensive to build than

hydroelectric power plants, but they

have lower operating costs. Solar power

plants also don’t require as much land as

hydroelectric power plants.

Hydroelectric Power Plant vs.

Geothermal Power Plant

Hydroelectric power plants use water to

generate electricity. The water is stored

in a reservoir and then released through

a turbine. The turbine turns a generator,

which produces electricity. Hydroelectric

power plants can be located near rivers

or dams.

Geothermal power plants use heat from

the Earth’s core to generate electricity. The

heat is used to steam water, which turns

a turbine. The turbine turns a generator,

which produces electricity. Geothermal

power plants are usually located near hot

springs or volcanic areas.

Both hydroelectric and geothermal

power plants have some advantages and


Hydroelectric Power Plant vs.

Wind Power Plant

Hydroelectric power plants are typically

built near large bodies of water, such

as river flows or lakes. Water is used to

spin turbines, which generate electricity.

Hydroelectric power is considered to be

very efficient and has a low environmental


Wind power plants rely on the wind to

spin turbines and generate electricity.

Wind power is considered to be a very

clean source of energy with minimal

environmental impact. However,

wind power can be less reliable than

hydroelectric power since it depends on

weather conditions.

Takeaway: Hydroelectric Power


In conclusion, the potential of a

hydroelectric power plant is great. It is a

renewable source of energy that can help

reduce our reliance on fossil fuels. The

plant can also help to generate electricity

in an environmentally friendly way.

The plant can provide enough power to

meet the needs of a growing population

and help reduce greenhouse gas

emissions. The plant is also flexible and

can be adjusted to meet changing energy

demands. With continued investment and

development, the hydroelectric power

plant could play a major role in meeting

the world’s energy needs.

Optimum Plant Performance



Urethane vs Plastic: Material

of Strength

As finite resources become more expensive, manufacturers are looking for ways

to improve their products with reusable materials. This begs the question about

whether manufacturers should look to urethane or plastic for their products. Plastics

are made of carbon and hydrogen molecules, while urethane is a bit more complex.

Urethanes are often referred to as plastics, but they are not.

How Plastics and Urethanes Differ

Stated by a urethane manufacturer, plastics include commonly used materials like

polyethylene, nylon, and PVC. Meanwhile, urethanes use a flexible polymer molecule that

makes the material an elastomer. This is why plastics must be injection molded, and urethane

can be cast molded or reaction injection molded. Because of their chemical makeup, plastics

will break when pushed beyond their limitations. But, urethanes usually return to their cast or

injected forms.


Durability and Flexibility

Urethane is a more durable and flexible product than any plastic. While plastics do last a long

time, products made of plastic will wear out before a urethane product does. They are also

more likely to break, abrade, or deteriorate before urethanes will.

One of the most unique aspects of urethane is the material’s elastomeric ability. This means

that urethanes can be stretched or extended significantly. And when released, they will return

to their present size. Plastics cannot do this. In fact, if you attempt to stretch or extend a plastic

piece, it will remain stretched, or it will break.

Abrasion Resistance

Another impressive quality of urethane is the material’s resistance to abrasion. Urethane wheels

and rollers will last significantly longer than the same parts made of plastic. Manufacturers

who use urethane parts in their machines are satisfied with the lifespan of the urethane parts

because they do not break down when friction breaks down other materials.

Cost Similarities

Making parts from plastic or urethane have relatively similar costs. But, what cost less is making

the casts for urethane products. Most of the casts are made out of silicon, which is inexpensive.

However, plastic injection molding is not expensive, but the parts made this way do not last as

long as urethane ones do. So, in the long run, urethane parts are more cost-effective simply

because they have a longer lifespan than their plastic counterparts.

Load Bearing

Urethanes have incredible load-bearing performances. Plastics tend to break when they are

pushed to their limits, but urethanes often surprise engineers with home much they can tolerate.

Their elastomer quality gives them better shock absorption when impacts reach higher levels.

Temperature and Friction

When urethane is put under the stress of heat and friction, it continues to perform. Of course,

like all products, there are temperature limits. One of those is the low-temperature threshold,

and urethanes will continue to respond in temperatures that reach -60°F and more.

Sound and Noise

Urethanes are frequently used to dampen noise. For example, polyurethane foam is often

injected into car doors to reduce road noise. While plastic isn’t necessarily a noisy material,

urethanes are generally quiet because they absorb noise. Plastic can be noisy, especially

crinkly bags and rigid toys made from the material.

A Hypercar Beyond

Hypercars: Project Chaos

And The Visionary Engineer

At The Helm

The first hypercar to be made in Greece has been unveiled. Spyros Panopoulos

is preparing to launch Project Chaos, a car so powerful that he claims it goes a

step beyond the hypercar: this, he says, is an ‘ultracar’. Supercars, hypercars,

megacars and ultracars are all impressive feats of engineering that help shape the

future, but what’s special about Panopoulos’ vision, and why is Project Chaos different.

Introducing Project Chaos

Project Chaos will be available in two versions. Both models have a 4 liter V10 engine

made up of 40 valves and 20 injectors, and heavily featuring titanium in their design.

The first variant will contain two 68mm carbon turbos reaching 2000 hp and a limit of

11.000 rpm. The second will be paired with two 78mm carbon turbos, which will reach a

staggering 3000 hp and have a limit of 12.000 rpm. The connecting rods and pistons in


the first variant will be made from titanium; in

the second variant, these components will be

carbon fiber. This version is expected to reach

a speed of 500+ kmh, placing it in competition

with the leading models for speed.

Perhaps what’s most surprising about Project

Chaos, however, is that Panopoulos intends it

to be not a racing car, but an everyday city

car. “We want it to be suitable for the everyday

commute and for all categories of drivers,” he

said. This is potentially a game-changer for the

auto industry, and customers could see cars

like this on professional industry analysis

pages and review sites when searching for

everyday vehicles in the future.

A Visionary Engineer

Spyros Panopoulos has an impressive back

catalog, holding records in dragster racing

with his own custom-built cars. He has built

a 2000 hp Lamborghini and, most recently,

completely rebuilt an EVO entirely on his own.

The initial vision behind Project Chaos was to

create a car for himself — he had no intention

of marketing a hypercar. His view that the

term ‘hypercar’ is widely misunderstood and

his belief that current hypercars are lacking,

however, led him to build a car that would show

the world the true potential of the hypercar.

A Dedicated Team

Project Chaos is entirely built by nine engineers,

using parts custom-made in house. The

majority of auto manufacturers use parts from

other companies, but Panopoulos’ company,

Spyros Panopoulos Automotive, prides itself

on its engineering capabilities. Every part, from

the exhaust to the turbos is made in-house.

The entire Spyros Panopoulos Automotive

team is currently just 22 people strong, with

nine engineers entirely dedicated to Project

Chaos. However, once production of the car

begins, it is expected that the company will

expand significantly.

A number of extreme hypercars have been

unveiled in recent years, but Project Chaos

stands out from the crowd. Not only is it

a spectacular feat of engineering, but it

represents a respect for craftsmanship and

design that is rarely seen in the industry, and it

clearly illustrates the ambitious vision of a man

determined to show the world what a hypercar

really is.

Training Engineering Interns

to Be Productive Members of

Your Company

Internships have long been seen as a way for companies to get cheap labor. Unfortunately,

this abuse of the system has been called out many times and it’s starting to scare away new

recruits that have a lot of potential. Engineering and manufacturing firms of all sizes need to

look for ways to establish a healthy company culture and a team that meshes well together,

and the best way to achieve this level of cooperation is to introduce engineering interns to your

team and have them learn as they meld with the team.

So here are a couple of tips on how to train an engineering intern to be productive member of

your company from the very first day.

Develop a strong internship program

A strong internship program will help attract talented individuals from across the country.

From offering accommodation such as dorms to giving them employee-like benefits, a strong

internship program is a must if you want to attract the best of the best.


Transparency is important to gain their trust

During the internship, it’s vital that you remain as transparent as possible to help establish a

sense of trust between you and your engineering interns. You shouldn’t hide things from them

and you should be clear about their position in your workplace and the opportunities that you

can offer them. Hiding anything will remove any sense of trust and will be problematic in the


Invest in their skills and education if they show promise

Investing in your employees is a must for any productive business, but you should also

consider investing in interns that show promise. Online universities such as KUO offer fantastic

technical degrees that can help teach your employees practical skills. Investing in these types

of courses improves the technical skill of your engineering interns while also solidifying their

loyalty to your brand.

Don’t hesitate to give them homework

Homework can sound a little demeaning, but for an engineering or manufacturing-focused

business, it’s important to give interns “homework” to help them understand your workflow and

processes so they can easily integrate with your team.

Understand their skills and what they bring to the table

Engineering interns can come from a variety of different backgrounds and it’s your responsibility

as an employer to understand what they excel at. By understanding their history, you can

assign them a role that best suits their experience, but can also help them grow their skills to

become a productive member of your team.

Focus on both cultural immersion and their technical skills

At the end of the day, skills can be taught to an intern which makes them more valuable to a

company. However, their personality and attitude are two things which cannot easily be altered.

That’s why it’s important to hold on to the engineering interns that you feel can contribute to

your company and teach them skills later on. However, you should also be looking at their

potential and ability to learn new things at an accelerated pace. The perfect intern should

show promise in both fields, not just one.

The Main Principles To

Adhere To When Moving


If you have made a decision to start a new life elsewhere, your mind may be

spiralling out of control with all the regulations and rules that may come with

finding a new life. Moving to another country often takes thorough checks and

immigration papers. You may want to consider an indefinite leave to remain

application or whatever suits your current situation; again there are always

people who can assist you. Here are some principles that you should adhere to

in order to make your transition a much smoother one.

About a month or two in advance, preparations for the transition

should begin. These preparations include:

Health, life and travel insurance: One of the considerations that arises in

any transition is the issue of health. Medical insurance is different from travel

insurance, it contains extensive and comprehensive coverage in routine and

emergencies. The health services used abroad are usually different from the

public health system used in your own country. The difference is reflected in

the perception of the service, the costs of medical treatments, their availability

and the need to receive service from providers who speak a foreign language

(if needed). They may have different mentalities and priorities than the country

you now live in.


Medical examinations and vaccines: There are some countries that require

vaccinations to enter. Of course currently there are no laws that state a Covid-19

vaccine is needed, but vaccinations such as yellow fever and typhoid may occur

in certain countries. The decision is made on the basis of the passenger’s immune

status, destination country, travel conditions and length of stay. It is advisable to

contact a travelers’ clinic as soon as possible at least 6 weeks before the trip. It is

also recommended to perform a comprehensive medical examination before the trip

for the whole family and to keep the test sheet handy.

Passports and residence visas: Make sure that the passports of all family members

are valid and are not likely to run out within the first year abroad. It is worthwhile to

evaluate the renewal of passports whose expiration date is close in order to avoid

running around in the destination country, certainly during the initial adjustment period.

It is also recommended to leave the country when you have legal residence visas for

the whole family - it is not enough to settle for a tourist visa. It is also recommended

to check the location of the renewal of passports and visas in advance and to verify

the existence of all the required documents in advance.

Bank account in the destination country: It is likely that you will be able to open

a bank account upon arrival in the destination country, but you must still have full

access to your money. It is recommended to check this first to ensure you do not

encounter any issues.

Moving abroad can be stressful but if you ensure that you are prepared, then things

should be much smoother running and you can learn to enjoy the change much

quicker, with less fuss.

Maintenance Tips To Enhance

Productivity For Your

Manufacturing Business


Regardless of how big or small your manufacturing business is, you

probably already know that even one day of plant unavailability due to

machinery breakdowns can be a massive cost loss. What’s more, you

may even lose substantial sales as customers are likely to go elsewhere,

and they may not return. So, to ensure your business is never down, we have

listed a few essential maintenance tips that will keep your machinery operating

while also boosting overall productivity.

Replace Components With Higher Quality Materials

Regardless of the specific type of machinery, all machinery is built from various

components; you can replace some parts to enhance overall quality and durability.

Therefore, you could consider switching to round carbon fiber tubing in place of

steel as steel is heavier and might weigh down machines, slowing them down

and causing more wear and tear. However, before pulling machinery apart, it

is best to have a professional service evaluate the best approach to upgrading

your machinery to enhance performance and productivity.

Schedule Ongoing Maintenance

Instead of waiting for your machinery to break down and hoping that it doesn’t,

you should create a scheduled maintenance plan. Ongoing maintenance is the

best method of avoiding a breakdown

as a maintenance team will be able to

identify issues that you and your workers

would not be able to. You should also

consider the recommended timeline

for maintenance when creating your

schedule. When creating a maintenance

schedule, you should also be sure to opt

for a reliable maintenance service with an

excellent service rating.

Clean And Lubricate All Equipment


The vast majority of heavy machinery

should be cleaned and appropriately

lubricated daily. All the moving parts will

need proper lubrication to work as they

should, so your team of workers should

know that cleaning and lubrication is a

big part of the everyday work schedule.

It is also wise to also invest in quality

lubrication, as quality lubricants will

prevent damage to your machines. Some

machinery requires specific lubricants,

so be sure that you are always using the

right products to keep your machines in

pristine condition.

Maintain Workplace Cleanliness

And Organization

Manufacturing is an industry often noted

as a high-risk work environment due

to the specifics of the workplace. While

maintaining a clean and organized

workplace will reduce injuries and

enhance your health and safety rating,

the effort will also ensure your machinery

is less likely to break down. Because a

messy workplace means that debris and

contagions could become issues for

your machinery, keeping things clean

and organized will protect both your

employees and your machinery while

also enhancing overall productivity.

Workplace layout is also important

for cleanliness, organization, and


Preventative and proactive maintenance

measures are the best way to avoid

unplanned downtime that can significantly

cost your business sales and profits.

What’s more, manufacturing machinery

and most heavy-duty machinery is not

exactly the most affordable types of

machines out there. Keeping up with

preventative and proactive maintenance

should be a priority as it will also help you

avoid the costly issue of replacing your

machines if they are damaged beyond

The Benefits of Having

a STEM Tutor Blog

Top-notch bloggers are earning their living by writing on different niches

such as buying guides, health and fitness, gadgets and tech, and whatnot.

Likewise, your passion for teaching can further help you and the students

as well by initiating a tutor blog. Nowadays every single piece of information

is being accessed at the fingertips so why not bridge the gap between tutors and

students in the digital world? Whether you’re a tutor in Melbourne, California,

London, or any part of the world, your very own tutor blog can help you reach a

broader audience.

Thus, the following advantages of blogging in science, engineering, technology

and maths can help clear up your confusion:

Reach an International Audience

Let’s shed a light on the point we just mentioned above, starting up your tutor

blog can help you reach a broader and international audience. You can spread


your knowledge around the globe and have fun simultaneously. Interacting

with students of different nationalities will give you exposure to their culture,

customs, and values. You can also earn in the international currency which will

benefit you even more if they have a stable economy.

Be the Owner of Your Content

Be it Chemistry, Maths, Physics, and so on, I have seen a plethora of content

of teachers taking a nice journey around the social media platforms without

acknowledging the rights to its owners. You simply lose ownership and control

of your content this way.

Having a tutor blog gives you your personal space where you are the owner,

and you can post however you like. Such kind of platform also allows you to

keep an eye on the analytics such as which of your content performed well in

comparison to the others. This helps you to improve your writing, content and

keep you motivated as well.

Market Your Services and Skills

By using the right and relevant keywords, you can market your services.

Providing valuable and easy-to-read information to the students on different

subjects is also going to give a perspective to them on your teaching methods

and content. Everyone’s first step to their problem is to Google it, especially the

students, and if your tutor blog ranks on Google or any other search engine,

you have the chance to be recognized in the marketplace.

Also, ensure to keep your readers engaged, so they don’t drift away. Use a

simple yet engaging writing style to keep them interested and before posting

the final draft, look out if there’s any room for improvement.

Get Instant and Unfiltered Feedback

Blogging is such a platform that allows different readers to post their comments

to let the writer know about their thoughts. Most blogs also let you post

comments anonymously if a regular reader is too shy to get in the spotlight.

Overall, this allows your readers to give instant and straightforward feedback

on your content quality and writing skills and some of them even ask you to
