The ABC of equipment
This is a simple guide when handling your equipment especially research equipment because sometimes they are sensitive and some of them are very expensive. So, you might want to operate them cautiously.
A – Assembly
First thing first, you might want to check the assembly of your equipment such as what are the parts or things that make up your equipment. This is important as a missing part of your equipment might affect the functionality of your equipment.
B – Battery
Battery here means your equipment’s power. If your equipment needs power, you have to make sure what type of power does it need? AC or DC? How much power does it need for the equipment to operate? This is to make sure the equipment receive enough and appropriate power so that it will functioning well and you don’t want to end up having your equipment blown up because of high voltage.
C – Connection
After all the assembly and power of your equipment are identified and gathered you can proceed with the connection of your equipment. A proper knowledge on your equipment is a must so that you can connect it well and the equipment will give you its maximum capability. When you connect your equipment, always remember that first thing comes first. It is also an advantage for you to sort out your idea and to-do list on a paper first so you will have a better view of what are you going to do.
Thanx for reading.

The first EPI was published in 2002 developed from the Pilot Environmental Performance Index. It was preceded by the Environmental Sustainability Index (ESI) implemented between 1999 and 2005. Up to date, a total of 163 countries have joined this programme.
The EPI was developed by the Yale University (Yale Center for Environmental Law and Policy) and Columbia University (Center for International Earth Science Information Network) in collaboration with the World Economic Forum and the Joint Research Centre of the European Commission. The methodology of this EPI is each country has responsible to carry out analysis and assessment on all the required 25 indicators and the report would be submitted to the Yale University and Columbia University for further evaluation. The results would be an index which can be used by country’s decision makers such as policy makers, environmental scientists, and the advocates and also for general public.
For 2010, the top 5 countries with high EPI were Iceland, Switzerland, Costa Rica, Sweden and Norway while the bottom 5 were Togo, Angola, Mauritania, the Central African Republic and Sierra Leone.
The EPI scores can be viewed at this link EPI map. The index can be viewed according to the metrics/indicator or by scale. Hope the information provided by the EPI can also help you to decide which country is suitable for your end of year vacation.
Thanx for reading.

More news are as follows:
"uangzhou, China, November 27, 2010 – China came from the first two sets down to beat Korea 3-2 (21-25, 22-25, 25-10, 25-17, 16-14) in a thriller and clinch their fourth gold medal in a row at the women’s volleyball tournament of the Asian Games here on Saturday.
China quickly jumped to a 4-1 lead, forcing Korea call a timeout in the first set. After that, Korea fought to fall behind at 7-8 in the first technical timeout. Korea and China dueled point for point until 14-14. China’s errors and Korea’s blocking gave Korea a lead. Korea blocked and Chen Liyi‘s several unforced errors in spiking allowed Korea to go ahead with a four point advantage. China made nine mistakes while Korea had only three in the first set. Korea took the first set.
Korea blocked China’s top scorer Wang Yimei twice at the start of the second set and attacked with great efficiency through Yang Hyo Jin, Kim Yeon Koung and Hwang Youn Doo. China had to change the setter to let Shen Jingsi step in, but Korea were not distracted and Kim spiked the ball to clinch the set 25-22.
China found them no way to choose but to fight hard from the third set. Middle blocker Xue Ming led China’s onslaught. Korea was fined one point for technical violation which disrupted their moral and momentum. China took full advantage of that to jump to a 18-8 lead. China took the set easily.
In the fourth set, Korea stayed neck to neck with China until Xue Ming, spiker Li Juan and Wang Yimei carved a four-point lead at 17-13, when Korea made more mistakes which helped China take the set, forcing the match into the tiebreaker.
Korea opened the fifth set in better form. Xue Ming served off the court, Korea’s captain Kim Sa Nee blocked for one point and Zhou Suhong’s error in attack, allowing Korea to claw a 6-2 lead. However, Ma Yunwen collected three points through fast attack, narrowing the scores to 5-6. Wayward hits by China’s Wang gave Korea a two points lead at 13-11 and Kim Keon Young spiked to bring up match point 14-12. Korea is near their great victory. But China did not give up fighting. Veteran middle opposite Zhou Suhong, who rejoined the team only two months ago, earned one point through attacking and then served an ace, leveling the scores at 14-14. China eventually rallied back to take the match due to an off-court attack by Korea and a strong counterattack by Li Juan."(1)
So, I would like to share the word Libero which is used in the volleyball game. A Libero is a free player who plays defensive role all the time in a volleyball game.
The volleyball libero is a defensive specialist position in indoor volleyball. The position was added to the game in 1999 along with special rules for play in order to foster more digs and rallies and to make the game more exciting. The libero remains in the game at all times and is the only player not limited by rules of rotation. He usually replaces the middle blocker position when they rotate to the back row and never rotates to the front row himself.
The libero is chosen by the team before the match or tournament and that designated player must remain the libero for the entire match or tournament. If the libero is injured, he/she can be replaced by any player who is not on the court, but that player must remain the libero for the remainder of the match.
The libero is responsible for a great deal of the passing in serve receive. Often the libero will be responsible for a much greater part of the court than his teammates. The libero is in the game to add ball control, so his main responsibility is to pass the ball well so the team can run the offense. On defense the libero needs to dig well, getting a hand on every ball he can to keep the play alive. Since the libero has no attack responsibilities, he must chase down every ball he can. He may also be responsible for setting if the ball is dug by the setter or out of the setter's range.
The Libero has to be a good passer and a good digger and usually they can be spotted as the player wearing different colour of jersey.
