How to make an automobile diagnosis?

With the advanced technology of today’s cars, a large majority of breakdowns can be spotted thanks to the vehicle’s diagnostic systems. However, in most cases, the consultation of this system will have to be done via a “diagnostic bag”.

Principle, case and connectors

hhshsdfjseddhheeeeeeeAs far as the principle is concerned, the ECU constantly receives information from the various sensors on the vehicle. It has a correct value range, beyond this range or in the total absence of a signal, it considers the element concerned to be out of service. This causes the diagnostic indicator light to illuminate. It can also compare the information of the different sensors and see an anomaly.

The “diag” case allows you to read these faults by connecting to the diagnostic socket such as OBD or OBD 2. These same sockets allow the reprogramming of the auto but require a more sophisticated tooling. The software interface translates the default code into French to make it easier for the user to understand. These car cases are often supplied with a range of plugs and adapters to connect to all existing systems.

During playback, the user can see whether the fault is fugitive (shown X times and then disappeared) or permanent (present on the vehicle at the time of the diag). There are many ways you can purchase and obd2 scanner.

How to get one

bfaisbvhsfhsicsgfiscisnxnsThe ideal is the suitcase manufacturer but it is very difficult to get one. Nevertheless, there are a multitude of universal suitcases for cars on the market. You can choose between purchasing the USB cabling or connecting it to a PC on which you have installed an interface software, or buying a portable box directly to read the faulty codes.

Unfortunately, the majority of these boxes and interfaces have a limited range of actions and will only allow the reading of faulty codes and their deletion. It is quite understandable that access to more advanced functions such as reprogramming keys and disabling the anti-start function are difficult to obtain because of the fraudulent use of this function (car theft).

Google continues its offensive against abusive advertising

Google announces new measures against abusive advertising. After the popup and videos in autoplay, it’s the unwanted redirections that are in its collimator.

Google continues to improve the experience on its Chrome browser. As he prepares to launch an integrated ad blocker, the firm is also taking steps against pop-ups, pop-unders and now abusive redirections.

In a blog post of Chromium, the company announces three new functionalities to protect Internet users. They will be deployed on the next versions of the browser.

hshdaohgoshgoshgoshgiosOne of these features is aimed at redirects that automatically return the user to another page. According to Google, these redirections do not usually come from the creator of the page, but from the third party, elements integrated by the latter.

And to avoid this type of bad experience, from version 64 onwards, all redirections coming from iframes (such as embedded videos) will be blocked. Instead, the user will see an information bar. The redirection, on the other hand, can only be done if the user has clicked on the iframe.

Also, Google is also targeting a technique sometimes used by websites (especially in porn) to bypass popup blockages.

When the user clicks on a link, the content opens in a new window while the main window opens another unwanted page (usually advertising). These redirections will also be blocked from version 65 onwards.

And finally, Google Chrome will protect its users against fake play buttons that redirect to another page, clear filters and other malicious techniques that aim to make users click to redirect them to another page. You can see a lot of them on illegal download or streaming sites.

If you think that your website might be affected by these new measures, you can use the validator proposed by Mountain View to see what changes you need to make to your pages.

The practices targeted by these future updates are part of the reasons why Internet users end up installing ad blockers. And because Google makes money from online advertising, it’s in their best interest to stop using them.

Cyber-addiction is rising

Cyberdependence: Is technology toxic?

Health professionals, parents, teachers, and parents would benefit from promoting a realistic, proactive and inventive discourse on new technologies to overcome the fear of fear of the anguish of modernity.

protect your kidsThe Internet and video games are now part of our daily lives, which does not prevent them from being regularly the focus of controversy. They are readily credited with having a negative influence on the new generations.

For example, in recent years, the concept of “cyberaddiction” has been used to evoke the abusive use that can be made of these technologies. Many psychologists remind us that addiction and virtual addiction is still not listed as a pathology in the international classification of mental disorders.

But the notion of addiction has expanded its perimeter and no conduct seems to be able to escape it.

Addiction to virtual addiction in adolescence would be more of a stigmatization than a true diagnosis, a judgment that runs the risk of freezing a child and his or her family in a misunderstanding of their difficulties.

Fear of A New Social Data

Almost all technical and cultural developments have generated their share of hopes, apprehensions, and worries. Writing, printing, the press, cinema, radio, television and now information and communication technologies, including the Internet and video games, are no exception to the rule.

The 35-year-olds have always been wary of the influence of technological innovations on their children’s future, education or psyche. Concerns that revolve around recurrent themes: New media could replace the “real life” and legacy of previous generations in the learning of moral principles while maintaining an excessive and unhealthy imagination.

Cyber-addiction: Definition

The term “cyberdépendances” has enjoyed some success since the 1990s, following on from the concepts of “drug-free addiction,” mentioned by Otto Fenichel in 1949.

Among the pitfalls to avoid, the assimilation of the Internet as a toxic substance that, in addition to demonizing a tool that is widely used today and used daily by millions of people, makes it possible to identify a comfortable scapegoat.

The perimeters of concepts are even more complex when one considers cyber dependency from adolescence: the quest for identity, psychological fragility, imposes an absolute caution regarding diagnosis.

Issues

phoning while drivingThe Internet offers opportunities and accessibility to a wide variety of content. Combined with the ability to remain anonymous behind the screen, these new uses are changing our online media and behaviors.

Beyond the dangers of dependency, there are other issues that arouse public interest. The increasingly violent content, increasingly shocking images, overdose and pornographic scriptwriting contribute to the formatting of adolescents’ emotional and sexual education.

For older people, this immoderate flow also contributes to a radical reconsideration of the notions of privacy, social ties and a series of cognitive problems specific to the “Google generation” (attention disorders, dysorthography, etc.).

In the same way, our relationship with time and space is shaken up “confusing real and virtual would be, in this case, wanting to decode our existences in the light of the exceptional, the” photogenic .” The debate on violence in video games is an example of this.

household appliances need cleaning on a regular basis

How to clean and maintain small household appliances?

Many small appliances are used to save time in everyday tasks.

To get the best performance out of your tech devices, it is best to clean them regularly, especially those that are used daily like cleaning appliances!

It can only be beneficial to them. After losing our dear coffee machine and steam cleaners here in the office, we want to share this article with our readers.

Here are some easy cleaning tips to follow.

A rule that you should never neglect is to always follow safety rules. For cleaning, the appliance must be disconnected first before doing anything else! No handling of appliances if your hands are not dry and finally, never allow soaking in the dishwater or water. To wash the blades, do it with a brush, not with your fingers…

For bread toasters: If a slice is stuck, use a wooden pliers or chopsticks to make them up, never with a knife or fork, especially if the appliance is turned on. If there is no drawer to collect crumbs and other debris, compressed air as a sprayer will eventually dislodge them.

maid cleaning an ovenAn electric kettle is easy to wash: a mixture of malt vinegar and water, which is brought to the boil and with which the resistance is involved, is used. Alternatively, put a coke-based soda in the kettle and run the kettle. It will be like new!

To reduce the wear and tear of household appliances, always avoid heating the engine;

Use the speeds recommended in the operating instructions of the user manual. If you feel that the robot is struggling, either you go to the top speed, or you divide your preparation to mix them

The steam cleaners will scald over time . Especially if your water is very hard. So here is a natural trick to maintain them and thus prolong their life.

Every year you will add a little white vinegar or alcohol vinegar in your water.
You will use your steam cleaner with all the accessories so that the mixture will pass through all the part of your cleaner.

The action of the vinegar will remove the limestone from your pipes and your nozzles; you will find a device without deposition of scale and prolong its life.

Be careful not to do this cleaning too often. The action of white vinegar, if used too frequently, could damage the joints.

Windows 10: Too many cores hinder performance?

Windows 10 suffers from bugs that slow down the operation of the OS when it needs to run on machines with many processor cores.

More cores are not always better when it comes to computing. One could imagine that the acquisition of a powerful machine with 24 cores would do wonders regarding performance.

But on his blog, programmer Bruce Dawson is not as optimistic…

He explains why he was experiencing unexplained slowdowns on his machine, bugs that he did not find when he changed configuration by switching to another OS or running Windows 10 on a more traditional machine.

Bruce Dawson currently works for Google and more specifically for the Chrome team. But as explained in his biography, he also worked in the past for Microsoft, mainly in the field of debugging and performance improvement. With such a pedigree, the programmer, therefore, sought to understand a little more in detail what caused these unexplained slowdowns on his machine.

To do this, he examined the operation of the processor via the information collected by Windows and performance analysis tools. Analyzes that allowed him to refine his diagnosis: a particular process related to the closure of ongoing processes and called NtGdiCloseProcess.

Without going into the technical and complicated details, this process fails to properly exploit multiple cores to duplicate its spots, and these are treated serially by a single heart. A non-optimal use of the memory, which has the effect of causing significant slowdowns of the machine when it has to close many processes at the same time.

To test this phenomenon, the researcher has thus created a script capable of creating on the fly more than 1000 processes, then wait a few seconds before closing them abruptly. The behavior differs dramatically when Bruce Dawson retries the experience on Windows 7, which uses all the cores to run the processes.

For the researcher, this phenomenon illustrates a phenomenon that attempts to explain the limits inherent in the distribution of calculations on several hearts and the “bottleneck” effect of certain spots that can not be duplicated.

As Bruce Dawson notes, frequent machine reboots can help minimize the consequences of this bug. The researcher added that he had informed Microsoft of this problem and that the teams are investigating the problem. One can, therefore, hope for a resolution of it in a future patch.

The Rise of Vaporizers in the Vaping Industry

Used in both phytotherapy and aromatherapy over the centuries, the vaporizer is gradually integrated into the universe of cannabis, with a huge success in 2017.

If most users have been conquered by this device with offering features, it is probably because of its legendary effectiveness and its ability to prepare cannabis in a more tasty way compared to traditional smoking methods. The cannabis vaporizer is therefore used by quite a lot of green addicts.

What is a cannabis vaporizer?

A cannabis vaporizer. also called “vaporisateur pour herbe” is a device that heats grass, oil or resin at a given temperature to release the flavours or active ingredients without the slightest form of combustion. It is a process that turns cannabis into vapour by the effect of sublimation. The vapor delivered by the vaporisation action is very pure compared to traditional smoking methods and consists solely of the aroma of the plants as well as the active ingredients.

The cannabis vaporizer transforms cannabis while retaining its aroma and 99% of its active substances. In short, it heats it by bubbling, reduces the smoke while preserving intact the active substances contained in your substance. The vaporizer heats the grass until the cannabinoid crystals evaporate without allowing the plant material to burn. It is a process that increases consumer satisfaction, because of the ability of grass to pass through the body more easily.

This is undoubtedly what contributed to the success of this device until now.

Technology Trends In Manufacturing

Technology has the potential to make a significant difference in the manufacturing sector. It can increase productivity, make the production process more efficient and change the way products are distributed. Some companies are already making significant changes in the way that they use technology, and this may point to the way things will be in the future.

Analysing Big Data

It is estimated that over half of manufacturing companies are now analysing big data to assess their performance in certain areas. This helps to make them more competitive as they use this data to find ways to operate more efficiently.

Upgrading Security

top-10-strategic-trendsWhen IT is used on a regular basis, it may be necessary to ensure that all of your systems are as well protected as they can be. Up to ten percent of companies have not made any attempts to upgrade their security recently and this could pose a real threat to their business.

IT Investment

Significant investments have already been made in IT systems by many companies. Investment needs to be made as soon as possible so that companies do not find that they have too much to catch up on. If competitors are already making investments, then it will give them the edge.

Internet Of Things

The Internet of things refers to the ability of objects to send information to other objects without the need for any human intervention. Although this is technology that is still very much in the early stages, the potential has certainly been seen by many manufacturing companies.

Assertiveness From Non-US Companies

Companies that are based in the US are not leveraging technology in the same ways that overseas companies are. It could mean that US companies are in danger of being left behind if they do not start to adapt some of these methods soon.

The Lucrative Business of Star Wars Action Figures

Whether you’re a serious collector or a keeper of nostalgic items, Star Wars is a trend that isn’t bound to go out of style anytime soon.

At Creative Collaboration, we are all (sorry Jen) huge SW fans and have accumulated a large number of figures over the last few year!

Action figures depicting your favourite characters, dioramas of your favourite scenes, and even the highly-detailed vehicles depicted in the movies and cartoons are available on numerous sites for sale. Figurine Star Wars pas cher are now available all across the web!

our-collection-on-the-shelves
Our collection on the office shelves

Spanning across generations from the 1970s when the first movie hit the theaters, Star Wars toys have been all the rage for decades.

Fan Favorites

Fan favourites such as Luke Skywalker in his black outfit to Chewbacca and Han Solo and the always famous Millennium Falcon are often the hardest to find. Prized figures such as C-3PO, Darth Vader, and even Yoda are considered so rare that they go for untold amounts when auctioned off. Darth Vader, Han Solo, and Luke Skywalker appear in multiple lists when speaking of popularity amongst Star Wars characters, which is hardly a surprise.

Newer Characters

collector-luke-skywalker-figureThose characters that are newer to the franchise are no less popular despite their lack of intrinsic value. Characters such as Ahsoka Tano, Anakin Skywalker, and even General Grievous are hard to find at times, as their popularity is rivalled by only a few.

Prized Characters

One of the most notorious best sellers is a fan favourite and a character that has drawn a cult following since his appearance in the original trilogy, Boba Fett. Simply speaking the name to serious collectors will set chills down their spine as they can only imagine what it might be like to possess such a rare and sought after figure for their collection. Also on the rare and desired list are Darth Vader, Obi-Wan Kenobi, and, surprise of all surprises, a Jawa figure.

Conclusion

For each and every character there are numerous representations throughout the toy and collectable realm that would suit most Star Wars fans just fine. For serious collectors, though, nothing short of the roughly four-inch representations will do. Such figures from the 1970s and 1980s when the original trilogy came about are considered quite rare and fetch unseemly prices but are considered to be well worth the money, and the effort.
