1.0 INTRODUCTION

The site investigation is the one thing that must be done before starting the construction of the building. This is because the soil condition at the site need to be identifies to determine the suitable foundation use for the building. As we know, soil play a main role to support the load that come from the building and the building need a suitable foundation to transfer the load to the ground. Therefore, the investigation of soil need to be done to identify the type of soil to ensure the soil can carry the load.
In investigating the soil condition, the probe mackintosh commonly use in this country , Malaysia. Probe mackintosh may consist of two type which it is normal probe mackintosh and JKR probe mackintosh. The difference of these equipment is the degree of its degree of it penetration cone. Although they differ in the slope of Cone penetration but its function remains the same. The purpose of the investigation by using probe mackintosh is to take the soil in the ground as a sample to identify the condition of soil and to identify the strength of soil to carry load from the building.
In the process of investigating soil by using probe mackintosh, our group has chosen Lala land which is located in the Universiti Teknologi Mara (UITM), Seri Iskandar,Perak to practice soil investigation work by using mackintosh probe. The selection of location is to facilitate the work done. Besides that, we have also given the task to prepare a report relating to the assignment received which we have to identify the condition of the soil at this location and should be recorded for the purpose of determining the strength of the soil.

2.0 OBJECTIVE

... IFRS projects into U. S. GAAP. If FASB-style "due process" can't get it all done, someone is supposed to be able to figure out a way to pick up all the pieces. Endorsement — Simple math combined with the most obvious lessons learned from recent history leads to the inescapable conclusion that the "endorsement" phase can't even begin for at least another decade. At that point, the FASB is supposed to get hog tied; it will not be allowed to do anything except for figuring out how to fit new IFRSs into the GAAP codification. The Staff Paper Fizzles instead of Sizzles Except for the Big Four (I'll be getting to that later) and perhaps a few large companies, the Staff Paper has gone over like a lead balloon. To start, the handpicked investor panel at July's SEC Roundtable on IFRS provided only tepid encouragement, and the smaller public companies panel could barely be held back from strangling the SEC staff; all they saw in IFRS was a lot of incremental cost and zero incremental benefit. Other federal regulators exercised political restraint, but the representative of the state boards of accountancy condemned the SEC's for its foolhardy quest for a holy grail -- which not everyone believes is so holy -- in no uncertain terms. It is quite possible that the failure of the Roundtable to drum up support for IFRS adoption may have also moved the IASB itself to go negative shortly thereafter. In an August 3 public conference call discussing the IASB's agenda, Ian Mackintosh, vice...

Testing

...The Mackintosh Probe development was based on the principles stated by Hvorslev (1948) for drive rods for sounding and sampling and recommended methods for static and dynamic sounding by European Group Subcommittee (1968). The probe consists of a cased screwed onto the lower end of the rod. The rods are of 16mm diameter HY steel each of length 120 cm. The rods are connected to each other by 25 mm outer diameter couplings. These couplings provide the lateral support to the rods so as to prevent buckling during driving. Driving is performed with a small hammer of 5 kg in weight and falling vertically through a fixed height of 30 cm along a guide rod. The total number of blows required for the pointer to penetrate a distance of 30 cm is recorded and used as a measure of the consistency of cohesive soil and the packing of granular soil. The relationship between Mackintosh Probe and Safe Pressure is as follows: - P = (2860 + 550 (R - 40)1/2) x 0.04788 kN/m2 for blows > 40 P = Refer Chart for blows < 40 Where, P = safe pressure (kN/m2) R = Mackintosh Probe Penetration resistance in blows/0.3m For more information or site appointment, please call us or drop us a message here.

Arts and Crafts Movement

...Through out the 19th century, England engaged many artists, designers and manufactures together expanding the design border. However, in 1836 a report of the Parliamentary Select Committee on Art and Manufactures (MET) commented on how British-manufactured goods were lacking in quality. This indeed created the Arts and Crafts movement in 1860, where the movement rejected modernity and industry, mainly towards the output of British Industry. As history reaches the 2nd half of the 19th century, the mission of Arts and Crafts movement did not completely establish but instead it provided more opportunities for new designers and more options on the market for consumers. With great support of the design society one of the many talented designers stood out and influenced the style of that period, it was Charles Rennie Mackintosh. Charles Rennie Mackintosh was born in Glasgow, Scotland, 1868 where the Arts and Crafts movement was happening. The time period where Mackintosh grew up was between the influences of Japan, which significantly influence his style later on. Mackintosh was part of the Scottish School, where a group of artists and designers establish new and strikingly modern style in 1880s. (V&A) They together worked in Glasgow and created decorative schemes for architectures and design. It can be concluded that Mackintosh grew up in an artistic environment and design was his main passion. He has three outstanding designs that were eye opening during the period...

Difference in Contemporary Uk Society

...In this short essay, I will be attempting to define difference by describing the concept in my own words with the inclusion of examples. Difference may allude to several variants, including behavioural, physical, anecdotal or a set of beliefs. Groups based on age, sex, class, religion and ethnicity all differentiate when relating or corresponding to those variants (Blakeley and Staples, 2014, p. 25). Physical variants may refer to the elderly, who are susceptible to different diseases and health related issues (e.g. Parkinson's, Arthritis, Alzheimer's) than those in their teens or early adulthood. Difference can be examined through individual or group choices. People may have different tastes and choices in clothes and restaurants. Others may prefer to choose different methods of travel. Certain groups of people may use different shops and stores. On City Road, the older generations typically use the Taste Buds Café, for it's friendly and secure environment where the elderly are made to feel welcome. The same people who use the Taste Buds Café may be different to those who use The Municipal Club, which is frequented by a small community of nostalgic pub goers who reminisce on times gone past (The Open University, 2015). Xquisite Africa and the Mackintosh Centre may appeal to people from different ethnic backgrounds and groups due to their differing identities and cultural connections (Blakeley and Staples, 2014, p. 25). Those looking to tap into their African......

...Nucleic Acid Hybridization Nucleic acid hybridization is a general method in determining the sequence of homologous DNA, it is also used to differentiate order of genes in a haploid set of chromosomes of a particular organism and the size of limitation fragments that contain such sequence. Meaning, it is possible to study the genetic differences between different organisms and individual here on Earth. A nucleic Acid Hybridization analysis uses five laboratory skills the Restriction fragment preparation: where a restriction enzyme is added to a DNA sample, Electrophoresis: separate the restriction fragment from DNA sample, Blotting: single strands are transferred onto special paper or nylon membranes through capillary action, Radioactive probe: it is added to DNA bands, probe is a single-stranded DNA that is complementary to it, Autoradiography: after the probe hybridizes and excess probe is rinsed off, a sheet of photographic film is laid over the gel, radioactivity in the bound probe exposes the film to form an image corresponding to specific DNA bands-the bands containing DNA that base pairs with the probe. The key on detecting specific nucleic sequence in the mixture of different DNA molecules is in the base pairing between complementary strands. Cytosine and guanine is paired by three hydrogen bonds, thymine and adenine is paired by two hydrogen bonds when DNA is heated the DNA attain heat that drive them to vigorous jiggling as the temperature extend to 95° that...

...TYPES OF SOIL TEST IN-SITU TESTING TRIAL PITTING DYNAMICS PROBE TEST BOREHOLES IN-SITU TESTING In-situ testing techniques including Standard Penetration Testing, Permeability Testing, Borehole Vane Testing, Pressure meter Testing and Packer Testing can all be carried out in the boreholes in order to provide information for geotechnical design. Disturbed and undisturbed samples are retrieved from the boreholes for inspection and logging by engineers and subsequent testing in our laboratories. TRIAL PITTING Trial pitting can be carried out by a variety of methods from hand dug pits to machine excavated trenches. Trial pitting is generally carried out to a maximum depth of 4.5m with standard excavation plant and, depending on soil conditions, is generally suitable for most low rise developments. All trial pit investigations are supervised by experienced engineers with a thorough understanding of geology and soil mechanics.

Atomic Force Microscope

...AFM Tutorial Within the past decade, a family of powerful surface imaging techniques, known collectively as scanned probe microscopy (SPM), has developed in the wake of the invention of the scanning tunneling microscope (STM). Each scanned probe technique relies on a very sharp probe positioned within a few nanometers above the surface of interest. Some combination of probe and/or substrate positioning is required to provide sub-nm-resolution, three-dimensional motion of the probe relative to the substrate. When the probe translates laterally (horizontally) relative to the sample, any change in the height of the surface causes the detected probe signal to change. In general, if the probe signal decreases, this means that the point on the surface directly beneath the probe is farther from the probe than the previous point was. Conversely, if the probe signal increases, then the point on the surface is closer to the probe than the previous point. The electronic circuit that controls the vertical position of the probe relative to the sample uses these changes in the probe signal as sensory feedback to decide which direction (up or down) to move the probe to maintain a constant probe signal. When the probe signal decreases, the circuit realizes that the surface is now farther away, so it moves the probe down until the signal increases to the same level that was measured at the previous point. Similarly, the circuit responds to increases in probe signal by moving the probe up...

Mergers and Acquisitions

...In 1980s, the workforce in US was affected by twenty five percentages through mergers and acquisitions activity. If the Percentage of activity will continue in recent phase, then in the end of decade all public companies will listed under new management or ownership. As the actual share value is paid by bidders the financial cost of acquisition will be understate and they don’t take some expenses under consideration such as advertising cost, golden parachutes, expenses of unsuccessful bids and payment for senior management. (Fulmer, 1986, Mc Manus, 1988) Many Multinational Companies are spending huge expenses on advertising and in public campaigns to take over major deals. The major deals between Dixon and Woolworth takeover took place. The company spent huge expenses on advertising and for public campaign which affect the financial position of Dixon’s company. In 1987 the huge bid was place by BTR against Pilkingtons. After two month Pilkingtons made a good stand by setting up International news agency which works for twenty four hours. They spent huge expenses on advertisement and made some expensive public campaign. In 1988, the Philip Morris paid $ 12.9 billion for kraft food which recorded a largest acquisition in a year. In the same year Atlantic Nestle paid £ 1.8 billion for Rowntree – Mackintosh which recorded as huge earning. From 1991 to 1993 through joint venture KPMG International recorded good value in three years. Investment pattern is greatly affected in......
