Large-scale government projects require a variety of resources like time, money, collaboration of all parties involved, and of course – communication. When you take a look at an example like New York City’s biggest expansion of their subway system in 50 years, adding the 2nd Avenue Line, it presents itself as a quite the formidable challenge to undertake in all matters. The Second Avenue Line, nicknamed “The Line That Time Forgot” since several plans for the subway line have been initiated and then abandoned, beginning in 1919. From legislative and logistics delays to communication problems, projects of this scale are prey to all sorts of mishaps and delays. Fortunately, once large government construction projects and citywide renovation efforts finally get approved and initiated, like the Second Avenue Line, it can be handled efficiently with the use of Hytera’s innovative lines of communications products.

Product Features Enhance Communications in the Digital Age

The handheld PD982 DMR (Digital Mobile Radio), the latest launch in Hytera’s exceptional DMR portfolio, is suited to projects as expansive as the Second Avenue Line. Noise cancellation technology allows the PD982 to provide top-notch audio quality, along with enhanced features like full duplex calls, recording capability via Micro SD, Bluetooth 4.0 for audio or data, and single-frequency repeater mode for increased coverage.

The RD982 is an open-standard DMR repeater that is able to connect to multiple sites via internet. It can be integrated with Hytera Smart Dispatch or other third party dispatching software. The RD982 S model is capable of being upgraded to trunking as capacity requirements increase, while the analog version of RD982 allows for an easier transition to digital technology.

Hytera’s complete DMR portfolio, now featuring the PD982, can compete with the best on the market for meeting diverse requirements, from simple, cost-effective handsets (PD3 and PD4 series), to feature-rich technology that can survive the toughest conditions (PD5 and PD6 series), to high-end system radios (PD7, PD9, and X1). Hytera’s entire portfolio offers specifications to suit custom needs – display or non-display, GPS or non-GPS, UHF, and VHF – allowing users a choice of product features to best serve operations and mission critical tasks.

Agencies and departments directing projects like the Second Avenue Line require seamless communications coverage, no matter the environment. Steel buildings, tunnels, and underground structures require the same level of communication efficiency as open air. Hytera is proactive in foreseeing potentially unreliable “blind zones” and breakdowns in communications. With each product, we make sure these challenges are addressed so our line of solutions can continue to provide flawless service.

5 Modern Design Styles that Changed the World

Modern-industrial is all the rage. From a contemporary office with a view of the skyline, to an old cotton mill resurrected as residential lofts, the sleek aesthetic of the new Industrial Age is upon us. Architectural scavengers are raiding abandoned warehouses and factories, selling repurposed relics for thousands of dollars. The DIY crowd scans roadsides and storage unit auctions in hope of discovering lost treasure. Why? Because the trend is rough without being insensitive, nostalgic and sexy at the same time…

Excerpt

In Post World War I civilization, many new art forms were born out of the chaos and disillusionment of a generation — “The Lost Generation”, as it was called. A new culture sprouted from the turmoil of mass manufacturing, impersonal machines used for waging war, and the fascist ideologies that had been imposed on much of the world during this period nicknamed “The Roaring Twenties” or “The Jazz Age”.

Out of the sadness blossomed new ways of thinking and doing. This movement became known as Modernism, which features some of the greatest thinkers, artists, architects, literary figures, musicians, and designers of the 20th Century.

Excerpt

It could be that bacteria were meant to rule the world. Living beings, like humans, for example, are just trillions of tiny bacteria holding hands. The human body contains about 100 trillion good (helpful) bacteria, not including the invasive “bad” bacteria that lives in every human body that essentially behaves itself most of the time. Researchers now know that bacteria is essential to life; digesting food, synthesizing vitamins, and protecting bodies against disease are just some of their functions.

Bacteria are, after all, one of the Earth’s decomposers. They congregate around dead things, garbage, and organic toxins. They have a job to do. Thus, it should be no surprise that bacterial populations will accumulate in dirty, unhygienic, or polluted environments. Additionally, they have as much innate will to survive as another other living thing.

Recent studies have found that microbes seem to possess a form of evolutionary intelligence. While studying the E. coli. microbe, researchers at Osaka University in Japan found strange sequences in its DNA. Later, Eugene Koonin, an evolutionary biologist who had been studying these results, realized that the microbes actually inserted virus segments into their own DNA sequences, allowing them to recognize and fight the viral attackers. Continuing studies into the process of microbial immunity may make waves in modern medicine’s battle against disease.

Other research has suggested that bacterial microbes may be inherently linked with cases of cancer. Not only are several strains implicated in actually causing cancer, but studies have shown a correlation between malignancies and the microbes connection to hCG, a fetal growth hormone. While hCG functions in a healthy body to protect cells, bacteria acts in conjunction with cancer cells to produce hCG, which, in turn, protects the cancer cells.

Bacteria appears to be quite the survivalist. They may have been dwelling on this planet for at least 4 billion years, and will latch onto whatever will increase their chances to reproduce and thrive. Fortunately, in the big picture, bacteria have already proven to be more helpful than harmful to other species including humans,
