The News

( January 22, 2013 -- Whilst it may seem that there is still a long way till Valentine's Day, it will soon be here. It is never too early to seek out ideas on what to do on one's nails.

Nail Rock has unveiled a new collection of embellishments for Valentine's Day. The wraps are decorated with pastel shades and love heart motives including messages such as Crazy Love, Sweet Angel and Forever.

Nail Rock's wraps are applied basically the exact same way any nail wrap is applied, the plus about them however is that if one does not use them all, they can store them and use them at a later date. This is not possible with other nail polish wraps, which will dry out once exposed to air.

There's no better time to play up one's girly side than the holiday dedicated to love: Valentine's Day. This holiday is such a great excuse to be surrounded in adorable pink luxury's and hearts. It doesn't matter if one is in a relationship - they can just take full advantage of the theme.

While natural hues and French tips are always a safe bet for date night, Valentine's Day gives ladies an occasion to go bold with their fingertips! Trendy heart and kiss wraps are a great option for a big statement, along with painted on V-day nail art, like cupids, arrows and hearts. To minimize the effect, they can paint one design or wrap one nail while coordinating a beautiful colour on the other tips. Red and pink nails are also beautiful options for a Valentine's Day manicure.

One doesn't have to go to a salon for beautiful manicured nails! They can learn how to give themselves a Valentine's Day manicure at home with nail courses in Dublin. However, for an elaborate manicure, they should choose acrylic nail courses.

They can spread the love, right down to their fingertips!

DENVER, Colorado ( January 22, 2013 -- The one trait that sets humans apart from all other forms of life is the ability to communicate, and yet humans manage to fail at communicating routinely. The most substantial fails in history can be traced to a communications lapse, and the same goes for failures in business. In her latest blog titled "Closing Communications Loops," time management and productivity pro Laura Stack discusses communications failures in the workplace and how these breakdowns impact productivity and the bottom line.

It isn't only huge miscommunications problems that interfere with productivity either. For instance, the corporate president who calls an analyst for a figure to include in an upcoming speech. The president expected the analyst to spend 15 minutes working out a high level "guestimate," when in fact he received a bill for 10 hours work calculating and crunching numbers.

According to Stack, both the president and the analyst are at fault.

"The president should have said, 'I'm looking for this kind of number, and thinking it'll take you fifteen minutes or so to ballpark it, plus or minus a few million dollars,'" Stack says. The analyst could have then told the president whether it was feasible to give him a proper response in 15 minutes, or tell him how long it would take, at which time the president could have decided if it was necessary to pursue.

One of the most valuable tools an individual has in their ability to communicate well. In fact, it is a crucial productivity tool, Stack says, especially in terms of how thoroughly and even how aggressively one expresses their needs or requirements. Even when communications lines are kept open, the pathway is meaningless if one party is beating around the bush, using obscure terns, paraphrasing the real message intended or burying a request in unnecessary verbiage that can be confusing and irritating.

"At best, this slows others down, and at worst, people may ignore you," Stack says. "Either outcome damages productivity, both yours and theirs."

Whether communicating with employees or superiors, Stack advises readers to make every effort to get their point across with a minimum of unnecessary "noise:"

"Choose your words with care, saying precisely what you mean, as directly as possible," Stack says.

For those who struggle with speaking directly to others, Stack suggests practicing what to say in advance.
"Take a results-oriented stance, envisioning precisely what you want to achieve," she says. "Then edit your message toward that end to make it plain and specific, tweak it to avoid sounding brusque, and deliver it assertively and as simply as possible.

"Avoid unnecessary disqualifiers as well; the "what if's," "maybe's," and "could be's" that cloud up so much of our daily communication, often to the extent that we lose what we really want to say."

According to Stack, directness is essential when asking for information or giving instructions. Take charge, choose the right words, and make your requirements absolutely clear. Workplace communication should be as unambiguous as humanly possible.

TAMPA, Florida ( January 22, 2013 -- An Acoustiblok noise barrier recently installed near a noisy exposed aerator motor at the Hillsborough County Northwest Regional Water Reclamation Facility resulted in an immediate and significant reduction in noise pollution for neighboring residents according to the Acoustiblok Corporation, the manufacturer and developer of Acoustifence.

The facility is part of a 1,500-acre multi-use tract owned by Hillsborough County. It is a Type 1 advanced wastewater treatment facility built to process five million gallons of wastewater per day. The facility is located on a 67-acre parcel of land 10890 South Mobley Road in Hillsborough County Florida. A residential community called Highland Park is located near the county facility.

Last year, members of the Highland Park Residential Community voiced their complaints about loud whining noises coming into their community from the nearby county facility. The facility took action to find a solution to the noise issue. In residential areas, road traffic noise is usually the major source of noise, with air conditioning/heat pumps, generators, construction, and industrial noises also problems typically.

The wastewater treatment facility noise source was a 200-HP Carrousel vertical, high efficiency aerator drive motor located on top of the facility's 24-foot Oxidation Aeration Basin structure according to Flint Seth, general manager of bio solids production and maintenance at the Hillsborough County Northwest Water Reclamation Facility.

Doug Fisher of the Hillsborough County Public Utilities Department worked with Acoustiblok to devise an economical solution consisting of an L-shaped frame barrier with four 6 X 30 foot-Acoustifence outdoor noise reduction panels secured to it. [Acoustifence __title__ ] is a product of Acoustiblok Corporation. Witt Fence Company of Riverview, Fla., was contacted by Hillsborough County personnel to install the barrier.

From a technical standpoint, [Acoustifence __title__ ]is an advanced sound barrier. A sound barrier, by its own named definition, is put between the noise source and the listener. Some barriers can be made of virtually anything that sound does not penetrate. There are however, differences and distinct advantages in some over others. Unlike a concrete block wall, which in one respect is a good sound barrier, the Acoustifence actually flexes with certain frequencies, especially very low frequencies. In the process of sound waves physically moving it, the product transforms sound wave energy into inaudible internal friction energy. A concrete block wall would not do this. As the Acoustifence is only 1/8 of an inch thick, it is very easy to position it closer to the noise source. The closer a barrier is to the noise source the more restricting it becomes to the initial sound waves.

Acoustiblok Corporation's Acoustifence product is a unique proprietary formula. It is a heavy mineral filled viscoelastic polymer material that is 1/8 inch thick and made in the United States. It comes in 6 X 30 foot sheets. It is one of the most effective first steps in reducing noise for many applications including industrial, commercial, and residential. The amount of noise it reduces however is much related to other reflective structures in the area.

A noise meter was used to measure the difference in sound before and after the installation of the noise barrier fence at the wastewater facility. Typical noise from these Carrousel vertical aerator motors ranges from 80-83 decibels from three feet away according to the manufacturer. From 10 feet away, the noise measured 79 decibels before installation of the Acoustifence began and registered 69 decibels immediately after the fence was in place. In a 10 decibel decrease in sound level, perceived loudness is cut in half to the human ear.

"While we were pleased with the reduction in sound decibels picked up by the meter, the most significant difference that we noticed was the reduction in noise heard by the ear. The reduction in noise felt significantly higher than what registered on the sound meter," said Seth.

Besides the proven and tested sound reduction qualities of Acoustifence, another beneficial quality of the product is that it is quick and easy to install. "Once we determine the technical solution to a noise issue, the installation of our products is not time consuming or labor intensive," said Lahnie Johnson, President and Founder of Acoustiblok.

Installation of the sound barrier at the Hillsborough County facility was fast and they encountered no unexpected problems. "It took only one day to install the barrier and it resulted in an immediate decrease in directional noise for our facility," Seth said.

"Acoustiblok's success is not just about the products we have invented but more about the innovation of the products in finding solutions for people's noise problems. For advanced problems, we incorporate state-of-the-art acoustical prediction software modeling. This allows us to really tie down what the results will be in advance of someone's purchase and of course can result in huge financial savings to the customer," Johnson added.

While the solution to the noise issue at the wastewater treatment facility was not a complex one, it was an effective one for Hillsborough County. "The Acoustifence barrier made a difference and we are very pleased with it. We have not received any new complaints about the motor noise since the installation of the barrier fence so that's a good sign so far. We are currently planning to build additional barrier fences for some of the other vertical aerator motors we have on site," Seth added.

While Hillsborough County is happy with how the small amount of [Acoustifence __title__ ] quieted the large pump, Johnson sees this as the first of literally thousands of similar pumps around the country and overseas that may need a similar noise abatement solution.
