India might join Russia’s United Aircraft Corporation (UAC), the maker of Sukhoi Superjet to build a new airliner of nearly 130-140 seating capacity.
Sukhoi, famous around the world for one of the world’s most lethal air dominance combat aircraft: Su-30MKI, also manufactures civil Airliners in Russia. Sukhoi Superjet 100 civil airliner is currently being operated by Russia’s state run carrier Aeroflot.
Russia’s United Aircraft Corporation (UAC), has announced plans to build a new airliner by 2016, which will bridge the gap between the Sukhoi Superjet 100 and the larger MS-21 airliner currently in development.
The company’s CEO Mikhail Pogosyan says, “We are considering an airliner with 130-140 seats as halfway between the Sukhoi Superjet with 110-115 seats and MS-21 with 150-200 seats.”

Russia had earlier approached India with the proposal of developing MS-21 jointly, however India had rejected the offer.

The company aims to manufacture nearly 485 planes between 2012 and 2014, Pogosyan revealed. This year UAC is going to sell 20 Superjets to customers and to start testing the new T-50 fighter with India. Pogosyan also says the company plans to boost its order book by 100 airplanes. Currently UAC has 300 orders for civil aircraft and 278 for military.

Russia has big plans to promote its airliner and occupy a section of the airline manufacturing industry which is currently dominated by western companies like Boeing and Airbus. 
Recently Russia’s hopes experienced a setback when Sukhoi Superjet 100 crashed during one of its test flight in Indonesia. The aircraft was flying on a purpose to demonstrate its capabilities to the number of interested parties and potential customers
Today Sukhoi Superjet100 is a successful aircraft developed with the cooperation of Boeing and Russo-French joint venture Powerjet which worked on the 76KN turbofan Engine SaM146. PowerJet is a joint venture between Snecma of France and NPO Saturn of Russia. Snecma is in charge of the core engine, control system, transmissions (accessory gearbox, transfer gearbox), overall engine integration and flight testing. NPO Saturn is responsible for the components in the low pressure section and engine installation on the Sukhoi Superjet 100 regional aircraft and ground testing.
According to Sukhoi, ongoing certification tests have confirmed that the Sukhoi Superjet 100’s direct operating costs are 6–8% lower than those of its key competitor, the Embraer 190/195. In terms of total fuel burn per sector, the SSJ is on a par with the Antonov An-148 but can accommodate 22 more passengers. Its lower operating, maintenance and fuel cost makes it attractive for the developing market like India, China, Brazil, South East Asia, Africa and Latin America.
When asked company’s CEO Mikhail Pogosyan about creation of an international alliance of aircraft-makers, he said, “The foremost partner could be India, which would provide access to the growing Indian market.” Other candidates for the alliance are considered to be China, Indonesia, Italy, South Africa and Ukraine, he added.
Russia already has a good experience of working jointly on projects with Indian companies and government, together Russia and India have successfully developed world’s fastest cruise missile Brahmos (in operation). Currently both the countries are jointly developing military aircrafts like T-50 fighter (5th Gen fighter) and MTA transport aircraft program. 
It is reported that the new Airliner will use aluminium fuselage and composite materials for the wing (including center section), elevator and rudder. The new materials will weigh 15 to 20 percent less, increase service life by 20 to 30 percent, reduce operating costs by 10 to 12 percent and reduce energy consumption during manufacture by 10 to 15 percent.
Fuselage plugs will give the new airliner its greater length. It will feature new engines from a source which has not been yet chosen. Some SSJ100 suppliers might be ousted from the new airliner. For example, the developers say the SSJ100 interior from B/E Aerospace may be out, in favor of a lighter and more modern interior from Italian companies.

Irkut MS-21
MS 21 Medium Haul Airliner
If India accepts Sukhoi’s offer then it would be India’s first ever project in developing a full service international level civil aircraft. This is not the first ever such offer to India. Last year in February 2011, Russia’s Irkut Aircraft Corporation had proposed India’s HAL (Hindustan Aeronautics Limited) to jointly develop MS-21 medium haul airliner. However, India had rejected the offer then, because at that moment HAL’s priorities were in developing defence transport aircraft, MTA with Russia and LCA. Also, HAL had no great past experience in manufacturing of civil aircrafts.
This time also HAL’s condition is same as the last time, but probably HAL would not like to say no to a bigger brand like Sukhoi.

5 Mistakes to Avoid While Buying Study Tables Online

Published

on

Study tables are a necessity in almost every household, office space, public places, etc., where one might just like to relax and read or avidly work on a given project or assignment. Let’s face it, completing tasks within a given deadline is a lot more distracting without a study table present. Sitting for hours on the bed with your laptop on your thighs or reading books casually might lead to back injuries and eyesight complications in the future. Hence it is best to have a proper study table to complete all your tasks and have a comfortable experience. These days, almost all customers have shifted to purchasing study tables online instead of going to stores because it saves a lot of time and money. However, while purchasing furniture online, there are a few mistakes which all buyers must avoid in order to invest correctly and have a commendable consumer experience:-

  1. Ignoring the brand name and price value:– It is really easy to go for furniture which is cheap and the description on the products is very promising. However, do not be fooled by such elevated claims these unknown brands make, because in their mission to sell duplicates of popular brands, they will create a divine image about their product and will rob you off your money. To be on the safe side, it is important to visit sites which are popular and there is good feedback about the purchases made. Try purchasing from brands which have both online stores and shops in the city. Better be safe than sorry.
  2. Impulsive purchasing:- Decisions made on an impulse almost never favour a person’s luck. While purchasing study tables, it is important to consider all possible loopholes that might be associated with it. Take your time to think and make a choice which will complement the area surrounding the study table and also will be durable. Don’t make an investment blunder.
  3. Ignoring the compatibility:– If you want to buy coffee table online or a study table, the surroundings it is going to be placed in must be carefully estimated. For instance, taking proper measurements of the area in which the table will be placed as well as the measurement of the door through which the product will be brought in must be accurate. It is suggested that you find a delivery service which places the table in its right place to avoid future complications.
  4. Not settling the place prior to the arrival of the table:– It is imperative that the necessary documents, books, copies, electronic devices, decor, etc., must be assembled in order prior to the arrival of the study table. That way, a lot of time will be saved and the table will be ready to use sooner. Keep a tab on the return policy from the brand you are ordering your study table from.
  5. Not surfing varieties:- Another major mistake buyers commit is not viewing varieties prior to purchasing a study table. It is more feasible if you surf through the different styles and varieties that these study tables are available in before impulsively investing in one. There are several styles that might suit your preferences like a bed study table, height adjusting table, a study table that can be folded and a light and shade one.

So if you are planning on purchasing a study table or a coffee table online, make sure to avoid these common mistakes to make a sound investment on your purchase and have a pleasant consumer experience.

The Importance and Usefulness of Medical Posters in Research

Published

on

medical-poster

The results of scientific work and research projects in the medical field can be disclosed in a variety of ways. Along with the scientific article and the oral presentation, medical poster presentations are one of the most important and most common communication formats among researchers in the medical field.  The medical poster is a graphic summary of a previous research whose composition consists of a short title; an introduction to the hypothesis: an overview of the experimental approach; the most interesting results, and a discussion about the results obtained. It is also important to include a list of the relevant articles used during  research. And, when there is still room available, it is worth to mention the persons or institutions that have contributed to the work by giving funding or technical assistance.  

Why are medical poster presentations relevant?

Medical posters are an alternative to oral presentations because they offer the opportunity to present research projects or papers that cannot be presented orally for various reasons – for example, if the author resides in a country other than that of the conference venue. Plus, they help to achieve the ultimate goal of all communication in a scientific congress: the transmission of a message by the author and its capture by the audience. This is possible because medical posters allow the attendees to analyze research results at a speed that matches their knowledge and skills, and also because it is easier to remember images – especially if you have time to look at them carefully – than to remember the content of an oral presentation.

In the medical field, posters are a form of communication with great potential because they enable the concise, clear and permanent transmission of their content, without the time restrictions imposed by oral conferences. Medical posters offer the possibility of establishing direct communication with the author(s) of the poster promotes the one-to-one exchange of opinions with a tranquillity that is difficult to achieve in the context of a large-scale conference. E- poster platforms such as https://www.postersessiononline.com/ have virtual galleries where the delegates have access to all the posters and they can interact in the same way they did during the congress, contacting the author, downloading the poster and even starting a discussion in the forum.

On the other hand, an additional advantage of medical posters is that the author does not have to prove his erudition and the presentation does not become a difficult oral examination, which is especially important when research is presented in a language other than mother tongue. It also allows doctors who find it difficult to overcome the pressure of an oral presentation to expose the results of their work.

How is the ideal medical poster?

The design of the poster is important both to attract the interest of people who visit the room where the poster is displayed and to comprehend in a very short time the most relevant aspects of our work. The reading of the poster -and the subsequent understanding of the content should take less than 10 minutes. A poster must be visually attractive and that is why it is important not only to know how to combine colors, letters, images and graphics, but also that it does not contain too much written information: the maximum recommended is 800 words. Therefore, the information should be synthesized so that, in a few minutes, the attendees have a clear idea of the objective and result of the research that they are reading. In this regard, a well-designed medical poster must satisfy the following criteria: Visual appeal, personality, aesthetic balance, clarity in the explanation of ideas, quick understanding of the hierarchy and distribution of the parts, synthesis and rigor.

You also have to take into account the font and size that is used, as some are too complicated to read. Times New Roman, for example, is often used in written texts but is not suitable for a poster as it is difficult to see and read from a distance. The color chosen for our poster is also important. Do not use colours that are too light on a light background or dark colours on a dark background. It is also advisable to avoid loud colours. Another common mistake is to plague the poster with too much information. Don’t forget that the medical poster is not an article in large print. Try to reduce the text and use more graphic resources such as tables, figures or images.

Stuttgart, June 06, 2019 –   America’s most prominent business magazine Forbes places The Karatbars group around Dr. h.c. Harald Seiz in a new list of the  “10 Blockchain Companies To Watch In 2019“. Joresa Bount’s article presents a “deeper look at the technologies, founders, and companies that are emerging in the industry (…) The teams of these innovative blockchain startups are global, cutting-edge, and typically include early blockchain adopters as founders.”

Ms. Bount asserts that “This list showcases 10 companies working to make blockchain more accessible, prominent and mainstream. (…) Each offers something unique with the potential to disrupt traditional industries as well as gain support from legitimate entities.”

“Based in Germany, Karatbars International GmbH is the developer of KaratGold Coin and a robust gold-linked ecosystem of cross-border blockchain solutions. Their latest product, the IMpulse K1 Smartphone, is the first phone using Voice Over Blockchain Protocol (VOPB). Currently, KaratGold allows consumers to trade or purchase gold on more than 500,000 acceptance points worldwide. With all of the recent talk about Bitcoin versus gold, this company provides the best of both worlds,” the article says.

Karatbars CEO and Founder, Dr. h.c. Harald Seiz states that “the Forbes contribution and inclusion in such a list is a great honor for us. The article shows the full diversity of the blockchain universe – and we are proud to be listed in this series due to our two crypto-currency innovations, including a link to gold, and the blockchain smartphone IMpulse K1.” “Cryptocurrencies and blockchain are on everyone’s lips. But cryptocurrencies are not only relevant as an investment object, the underlying blockchain can revolutionize all our workflows and business processes – even outside of finance. That’s what we and the other nine companies exposed by Forbes are working on every day,” he continues.

“In order to strengthen our marketing activities in this area, we have now entered into a cooperation with the most well-known crypto-influencer, John McAfee. Hardly anyone else covers the market as well – and critically – as he does and so we are pleased about the collaboration on our cryptocurrency KaratGold Coin (KBC),” Seiz tells. “Warning: I work with this company. However, KBC coin is linked to gold in a way that downside is limited, while the upside is unlimited. (…) For me, it is simply a way to protect against the crypto markets’ volatility. I only work for companies I believe in,” McAfee shared on his Twitter.
