Как move in the jungle?

In the jungle, energy consumption in motion at t°C= 26,5°-40,5°C and high humidity increases by 2 times compared to a temperate climate. Sweating increases sharply, sweat does not evaporate, flows down the body, water loss increases several times up to 0,5-1,1 liters per hour.

The basic rule when moving in the rainforest is to take your time and keep moving, moving from place to place. Every hour a stop for 10-15 minutes, after 5-6 hours a big halt for 1,5-2 hours.

Movement is significantly hampered due to thickets and debris. If a group is walking, the former can remove interfering plants to facilitate movement. To do this, you should take a machete or, which, of course, is not so cool, an ordinary garden pruner. Tropical forests are very difficult to navigate. A large number of thorny and poisonous plants, as well as insects. It is very important to monitor the integrity of your skin, because. in a hot and humid climate, wounds heal very poorly, and there is a high probability of suppuration.

1,5-2 hours before dark, it is necessary to begin the arrangement of the camp.

Night comes immediately without twilight (at 17-18 hours).

A place for setting up tents should be chosen in such a way that there are no dead woods and large branches nearby, because. they can break off and fall with small gusts of wind.

Artificial leather for touch emulation 15.04.2024

In a modern technology world where distance is becoming increasingly commonplace, maintaining connection and a sense of closeness is important. Recent developments in artificial skin by German scientists from Saarland University represent a new era in virtual interactions. German researchers from Saarland University have developed ultra-thin films that can transmit the sensation of touch over a distance. This cutting-edge technology provides new opportunities for virtual communication, especially for those who find themselves far from their loved ones. The ultra-thin films developed by the researchers, just 50 micrometers thick, can be integrated into textiles and worn like a second skin. These films act as sensors that recognize tactile signals from mom or dad, and as actuators that transmit these movements to the baby. Parents' touch to the fabric activates sensors that react to pressure and deform the ultra-thin film. This ... >>

Petgugu Global cat litter 15.04.2024

Taking care of pets can often be a challenge, especially when it comes to keeping your home clean. A new interesting solution from the Petgugu Global startup has been presented, which will make life easier for cat owners and help them keep their home perfectly clean and tidy. Startup Petgugu Global has unveiled a unique cat toilet that can automatically flush feces, keeping your home clean and fresh. This innovative device is equipped with various smart sensors that monitor your pet's toilet activity and activate to automatically clean after use. The device connects to the sewer system and ensures efficient waste removal without the need for intervention from the owner. Additionally, the toilet has a large flushable storage capacity, making it ideal for multi-cat households. The Petgugu cat litter bowl is designed for use with water-soluble litters and offers a range of additional ... >>

The attractiveness of caring men 14.04.2024

The stereotype that women prefer "bad boys" has long been widespread. However, recent research conducted by British scientists from Monash University offers a new perspective on this issue. They looked at how women responded to men's emotional responsibility and willingness to help others. The study's findings could change our understanding of what makes men attractive to women. A study conducted by scientists from Monash University leads to new findings about men's attractiveness to women. In the experiment, women were shown photographs of men with brief stories about their behavior in various situations, including their reaction to an encounter with a homeless person. Some of the men ignored the homeless man, while others helped him, such as buying him food. A study found that men who showed empathy and kindness were more attractive to women compared to men who showed empathy and kindness. ... >>

Power miniblock for high current POL converters 22.01.2008

International Rectifier has announced the iP1206, a new technical solution for the implementation of step-down synchronous converters used to power telecommunications and network equipment.

The IC is the latest addition to the iPOWIR family of power miniblocks containing all the passive components and semiconductors for realizing the power part of synchronous converters. Based on iPl206, it is possible to implement a single-phase converter with an output current of up to 30 A and a two-phase converter with two independent outputs for currents of 15 A each. Both options are based on anti-phase operation of the channels in order to reduce input voltage and current ripple. To achieve high bulk density, iPl206 uses a full-fledged PWM controller and an optimized power stage based on modern semiconductor devices.

Since the new chip contains all the semiconductor and passive components that are important in terms of conversion quality, only a few additional power passive components are required to create a high-quality converter. At the same time, the requirements for the qualification of the developer and the printed circuit board are significantly reduced.

The features of the iP1206PBF are a constant PWM frequency of 600 kHz in the channels, lossless current limiting, overvoltage and overtemperature protection, offset start mode, and output voltage tracking. The input voltage range is 7,5...14,5 V, the output voltage range is 0,8...5,5 V.
