One of the most popular electronic devices purchased by some drivers is the radar detector. This device is used to detect incoming signal from a traffic enforcer’s traffic detecting device (you may want to visit www.radardetectorweb.com for a complete explanation on how and why radar detectors are used). This means that the radar detecting device you are using will alarm you if you are already past your speed limit. As a result of the alarm, you need to slow down your driving speed to avoid traffic officers in giving you a speeding ticket.

Now if in case you would want this electronic device, where is the best place you would put it in your car. Well, one of the best places where you can mount the radar detecting device is on your car’s dashboard. Simply use glue or the screw it on your dashboard and you can now use it while driving. The fact why it’s usually placed on top of your dashboard is that the electronic device can easily detect incoming radio frequency on a faster rate. Well, it focused on a straight frequency (in front of the car) and this would easily detect other signals.

You can also place it beside your side view mirror. Sometimes, it best placed in your side view mirror since it small and it can’t be easily detected by police officers since they usually focused on the front part of your car (dashboard) and not on the side part while you are driving.

If in case you are using a portable type radar detector, you can simply place it on your dashboard or use your hands to focus on to any radio detecting devices in front of incoming traffic and detect any traffic detecting signals that are one the way. However, it could be inconvenient for you if you’re using the portable type since it’s usually used when you are on a stable position.

Well, you can also stick the radar detecting gadget on top of your car. However, it can be easily seen so it’s best to stick it on the inside top part (front on top of the rear view mirror) of your car. It’s not that easily seen by incoming traffic enforcers unless they have a keen eye with regard to these devices placed in any area in your car.

Take into account, there are other ways on how you can put your radar detector in your car without being seen by the police officer. Just make sure that’s it’s undetected and it’s also legal to use it in your area.

Automated Pool Cleaners: Discovery and Evolution


Automated Pool Cleaners: Discovery and Evolution

 

Pool cleaners are derived from two fields of science: early cistern cleaners and development of the modern water filter. An early Automatic Pool Cleaner device was in fact a cistern cleaner. A cistern is nothing but a waterproof container for holding fluids (mostly water). Cisterns are still manufactured today for collection and storage of rainwater. Palaces during the antiquity period had large and lavish cisterns and pools. Cisterns were also common in early America; references have been made to cistern cleaner patent file as early as 1798 by the United States Patent and Trademark Office. Large cisterns were very popular before swimming pools were in fashion and affordable.

 

An application for “Tank and Cistern Cleaner” was first filed by John Pattison in 1883 and the first patent was issued in 1884. The machine was able to pick up sediments through a combination of suction and manipulation of water pressure. This equipment evolved into the Automatic Pool Cleaner we know today.

 

Early models of an Automated Pool Cleaner:

 

The first pool cleaning machine was invented by John M. Davison of Pennsylvania in 1912. He filed a patent application for a pool cleaner, which was issued in March 1913.

 

The First Suction-side swimming pool cleaning equipment called “Swimming Pool Cleaner” was invented by Roy Everson in 1937. The first fully automated suction-side pool cleaning machine was invented by Andrew Pansini of California. The machine was able to effectively remove dirt and other accumulations from the pool walls and floor. It could also disperse foreign matter which is then easily captured by the pool’s normal pump-filter.

 

The first robotic pool cleaning machine was invented by Robert Myers of Florida in 1967. It was the first electric operated swimming pool cleaning machine. The robotic cleaners today come with an internal microchip that is programmed to turn on/off and reverse the machine without any human intervention.

 

One of the more recent inventions in pool cleaning equipment is the Pressure-side cleaner. It was invented in 1972 by Melvyn Tarzana of California. A United States Patent number 3,822,754 was issued for this automatic swimming pool cleaning machine. This Automatic Pool Cleaner uses three wheels to traverse underwater; it travels on the pool vessel surface along a random path to remove debris effectively. It is now more popularly known as the Polaris Pool Cleaner.

Running When it Rains


While the rain might be exactly what is needed to green up our lawn, it is the last thing we need when we know we should run, but are feeling a little under-motivated. We can either use a rain day as our ticket for a ‘freebie’ day off, or turn up our inner ‘tough’ and go out there anyways.

 

Our team at Running On the Wall has trained, and raced, in all types of weather conditions. Like badges of honor, our race medals are lovingly displayed on our medals holder rack. We know that we made it to those finish line only by pushing ourselves past our own mental boundaries, including running in the rain. If you decide today is your ‘freebie’, then enjoy it. Put your feet up, relax, and wait for the’ sun to come out tomorrow’ as the song goes. If you decide to run in the rain, or find yourself racing in the rain, here are a few suggestions to make your experience a little more positive.

 

1. Wear a hat with a brim. Running with an umbrella is highly impractical, so in order to keep the rain from going into your eyes to the point of frustration, wear a baseball style hat that has a brim.

 

2. Dress in layers. Stay dry from the inside out. That means, wearing fabrics against your skin that wick away your body perspiration, and fabrics on the outside that keep the wet out and off your skin.

 

3. Use either Body Glide or Vaseline to prevent chaffing and blistering that might result from wet shoes, socks or clothing. Feet, inner thighs, and bra lines are all areas that might need the extra protection.

 

4. Wear a garbage bag at the starting gate before racing. Keep dry as long as possible before the gun goes off, and plan a clean dry change of clothes at the finish line. If the weather is not too cool, plan to wear shorts or tights instead of pants.

 

5. Use extra caution. If there is lightning, don’t be stubborn – it’s time to get inside. Drivers also have reduced visibility and can not stop as quickly when it’s wet, so keep this in mind too.

 

6. Think positive thoughts. Instead of resenting the rain, and spending the whole time thinking about how lousy the weather is, try to enjoy it. Think about how cool you can stay with your own constant exterior hydration system in effect instead of blazing heat!

 

When you hang your race bibs and medals on your holder from Running On the Wall, you might think about how participating in a race teaches you to overcome challenges. Rain can definitely be a challenge – but it is up to you how whether you will rise up to the occasion, or go easy on yourself and wait for a better day. Either way, rain does make for a change of pace!
