Introduction
This project was inspired by a power outage we experience now a days. Since every day we experience black out, we decided to make our own DARK SENSOR EMERGENCY LIGHT. It is so very useful during power outage rather than using a candle that may cause fire incidents.
This is an automatic emergency lamp with day light sensing, means it senses darkness/night and turns ON automatically. Similarly it senses day light and turns OFF automatically. The good thing about this circuit is that it incorporates ordinary, cheap components which can be easily procured from the local market.

Description I-Schematic diagram

Conclusion
We have to make the light sensor Night switching, we used two transistor, one LDR, one potentiometer (100K ohms), a diode (1N4007), bulb, rechargeable battery (4.5V), and a resistors (2pcs 33 ohms and 2pcs 1K ohms ). We connected a resistance of 1K in series with base of transistor (T1) and also connected the other components of the circuit as shown in the circuit diagram. We used the common emitter configuration of the transistor in this circuit.
If we only used one transistor than the circuit will be daylight switching, we have to make the night switching so we inverted the output by connecting the base of the other transistor with the collector of the first transistor.
Transistor (T1) is ON when there is a light present on the LDR because the voltage drop across the variable resistor is greater than 0.6V so that’s why the emitter collector is shorted all the current passes through this and transistor (T2) is turned off. That’s why we have no output when there is light because we are getting the output across T2. And whenever the LDR detects no light, T1 is off and T2 is on so we got the output in the dark.

A bipolar junction transistor can be used in many circuit configurations; as an amplifier, oscillator, filter rectifier or just used as a switch. If the transistor is biased into a linear region, it will be used as an amplifier or another linear circuit, if biased into saturation or cut-off, then it will be used as a switch, controlling other circuits. This article describes the BJT when used as a switch.

Transistor as a switch

BJT used as an electronic switch, in grounded-emitter configuration.
Transistors are commonly used as electronic switches, both for high-power applications such as switched-mode power suppliesand for low-power applications such as logic gates.
In a grounded-emitter transistor circuit, such as the light-switch circuit shown, as the base voltage rises, the emitter and collector currents rise exponentially. The collector voltage drops because of the collector load resistance (in this example, the resistance of the light bulb). If the collector voltage were zero, the collector current would be limited only by the light bulb resistance and the supply voltage. The transistor is then said to be saturated - it will have a very small voltage from collector to emitter. Providing sufficient base drive current is a key problem in the use of bipolar transistors as switches. The transistor provides current gain, allowing a relatively large current in the collector to be switched by a much smaller current into the base terminal. The ratio of these currents varies depending on the type of transistor, and even for a particular type, varies depending on the collector current. In the example light-switch circuit shown, the resistor is chosen to provide enough base current to ensure the transistor will be saturated.
In any switching circuit, values of input voltage would be chosen such that the output is either completely off,[21] or completely on. The transistor is acting as a switch, and this type of operation is common in digital circuits where only "on" and "off" values are relevant.

...make the decision to go to upper management about it. I had to take into consideration that it would be known I was the one who brought it to management’s attention, so I would be the bad guy. I also knew that if security saw it on video and I had not said something, I would be reprimanded. The values that I have as a senior lead, led me ultimately to make the choice to go to my boss, although knowing it was on camera also played a factor in my decision. I also felt that if a new employee saw this on the first day, she may be offended. As it turned out the new hire chose not to come back and I question whether the things she saw impacted her decision. Both the employee that was reprimanded and I were impacted by my decision, personally and professionally. The outcome was that she received a verbal warning and I am not the most liked person in the office. It makes it very hard to make decisions like these when we are friends away from work also, but when I took this job, I was aware that this may...

The Clown

...another day, I would spend the first quarter buying gifts and making letters or videos for the people who made an impact in my life. After doing those things, I would invite the person I love for a picnic under a tree somewhere on a hill and have a great time. Before I die, I would actually want to do something extreme. After having lunch with the person I love, I would want to go sky diving with a really good friend of mine because we promised that we would go on a sky dive together. I actually want to ride all the roller coasters in the world, but since that would require travelling the world and would accommodate days, I would go on skydiving because it can be done in less than a day. After going on a sky dive, I would eat the best burger in town together with my sister because we had a deal when we were young that we will eat the tastiest burger in the country. After eating with my sister, I would host a party somewhere spacious, like a dome. My family, my very close friends, even my classmates back in preschool, all of them would be there. I would hire all my favorite bands to play all my favorite songs. I would love it if everyone would just have fun and it would be one of the most memorable parties that they have ever been to. During the last hours of my life, I would spend it with the people I love somewhere windy and near a waterfall. I would give them my presents and letters or videos that I have prepared earlier.

...BUS 2240 News Article Assignment Tap to hail In ever more cities, smartphone apps are reshaping the taxi market Oct 19th 2013 | LONDON AND NEW YORK |From the print edition * * All hail the quick, reliable taxi SINCE last month the citizens of Johannesburg have been able to hail and pay for taxis through SnappCab, a local start-up. A tap on SnappCab’s smartphone app summons a cab; a driver accepts on his own phone; and the passenger sees the driver’s name and photo, so he knows whom to expect and when. At journey’s end, he can pay with another tap through a pre-loaded credit card, or in cash. The idea is simple: the app makes it easier to bring together drivers, whose cabs are often empty, and passengers. Time and fuel are saved. Money is made. In many other cities taxi apps have taken off rapidly. Hailo, founded in London by cabbies and techies three years ago, says 60% of the city’s black-cab drivers are now on its books. Several cabs are decked out in Hailo yellow. It has spread to 14 places, most recently Osaka in Japan. Uber began in 2009 in San Francisco, which has a shortage of taxis but a surfeit of geeks looking for problems to solve. Now it can find you a ride in 49 cities in 19 countries. GetTaxi, set up in Tel Aviv in 2010, has reached London, Moscow and New York. Local apps can be found in cities from São Paulo to Singapore. Besides SnappCab, Johannesburg has Uber and Zapacab (which also started in Cape Town earlier this year) plying for......

The Rise of the Sharing Economy

...The rise of the sharing economy (http://www.economist.com/news/leaders/21573104-internet-everything-hire-rise-sharing-economy) On the internet, everything is for hire Mar 9th 2013 LAST night 40,000 people rented accommodation from a service that offers 250,000 rooms in 30,000 cities in 192 countries. They chose their rooms and paid for everything online. But their beds were provided by private individuals, rather than a hotel chain. Hosts and guests were matched up by Airbnb, a firm based in San Francisco. Since its launch in 2008 more than 4m people have used it—2.5m of them in 2012 alone. It is the most prominent example of a huge new “sharing economy”, in which people rent beds, cars, boats and other assets directly from each other, co-ordinated via the internet. You might think this is no different from running a bed-and-breakfast, owning a timeshare or participating in a car pool. But technology has reduced transaction costs, making sharing assets cheaper and easier than ever—and therefore possible on a much larger scale. The big change is the availability of more data about people and things, which allows physical assets to be disaggregated and consumed as services. Before the internet, renting a surfboard, a power tool or a parking space from someone else was feasible, but was usually more trouble than it was worth. Now websites such as Airbnb, RelayRides and SnapGoods match up owners and renters; smartphones with GPS let people see where the nearest rentable car......

If Julia were to borrow money from a friend before the first game to purchase more ingredients, could she increase her profit? If so, how much should she borrow and how much additional profit would she make? What factor constrains her from borrowing even more money than this amount? Yes, Julia could increase her profit if she borrowed from a friend. The shadow price is 1.50 for each additional dollar that she earns. This was found by looking at the sensitivity analysis report from the computer solution output. The shadow price means for every dollar she borrows she will make a profit of 1.50. The shadow price is valid within the sensitivity range for her budget and she can only borrow up to the maximum limit of the sensitivity range. The maximum limit in the food booth model is 1658.88 (which is the factor that constrains her) which means that she should borrow 158.88 from a friend to make an additional...

Case Problem “Julia’s Food Booth”

...Assignment #3: Case Problem “Julia’s Food Booth” La-Tia Jackson MAT 540 Dr. Albert Yin May 26, 2013 1. Formulate and solve an L.P. model for this case. There are three products or variables in this problem that we must consider for purchase. X1 = number of pizza slices Julia should purchase X2 = number of hotdogs Julia should purchase X3 = number of barbecue sandwiches Julia should purchase. Julia decided to have a food booth in order to make some money. Her goal is to maximize the profit that she can get from selling the hotdogs, pizza, and barbeque sandwiches that she plans on selling. The first thing to do is find the profit that Julia will make per Item. To find that per Item price, the cost of the item will be subtracted from the selling price. Pizza: Julia can buy a pizza that contains 8 slices for $6. That means each slice of pizza will cost her $0.75. She plans to sell each piece for 1.50. $1.50-$0.75= $0.75 profit Hot dog: $1.50 - $0.45 = $1.05 profit Barbecue Sandwiches: $2.25 - $0.90 = $1.35 profit The objective function can now be written since we have found the potential profit of each food item. The objective of this function is to maximize Z (profit). Z= $0.75x1 + $1.05x2 + $1.35X3 Budget is the one thing that has to be taken into consideration. Julia has $1,500 on hand to purchase and prepare food for the first home game. A constraint must be formed for the budget. Cost of each item and money available is what is known, so it is easy to form......

Marriages are not for allowing two lovers to accomplish personal goals, but rather for faithful companions to live the rest of their lives together. A Royal wedding demands more than an unconditional love. The majestic couple looking to get married today is really facing a set of very difficult and complicated decisions about social, culture, financial and economic judgment. On the other hand, running for the Presidential elections is all about winning the presidency.

However, the candidates, who present the best of opinions to construct a nation, have the chance to win the primary and general election campaigns. To win a Presidential election one must be comfortable with messaging, campaign organizing and fundraising, among other skills. When founders thought, who will govern the nation, they came up with the concept of elections. Since then, it has become the tradition and culture of United States of America to select the President through an election. In Presidential elections the candidates pass through, campaign planning, debates, speeches and social networking asking people for their votes.
