New Hybrid Battery Technology Needed – Interior Designs Considered

If it isn’t obvious to you, it should be. That is to say it should be obvious that we need a new battery technology, and we need more innovation in that sector if we are to enjoy the future of electric cars. Right now the batteries are too heavy, and they require elements and compounds which may not be readily available. Lithium for instance is in short supply worldwide.

Also, batteries only last so long before they are no good anymore and then we end up throwing them away, and this will cause problems for our landfills. There are many new research projects going on right now at some of the top universities in battery technology, but we need to move them along faster. Specifically, we need to work on the interior structure of the batteries, and consider some new designs. For instance, maybe the structures inside of these batteries need to take on the design and properties of;

Olympic Rings
Webbed Mesh
Foam Structure

Now then, if you’d like to learn more about battery technologies there is an interesting video that like to recommend to you online. It’s not too hard to find and you can probably discover it by using any major search engine: MIT Lecture; “How do we think against the grain? Pose the right question,” by Donald Sadoway.

The speaker makes very good points, and things we need to be cognizant of as we move forward into electric car future. Remember we need lithium for batteries for personal tech devices like cell phones, tablets, and computer systems. And that means the cost of the batteries for electric cars or hybrids goes way up. If we use other types of batteries, well they are not as good, and the batteries don’t last as long.

This becomes a problem for our nation’s dumps and landfills. It’s something we need to worry about, and it is unfortunate that we are moving ahead with electric cars before these problems are adequately solved. Nevertheless, here we go into the future, which brings me to my main point here; we need to accelerate research in battery technology to find the best combination for the forward progression of human technologies. Please consider all this.

Basic Ideas for Good Kitchen Design

There are few areas within the modern household where design is as important to homeowners as the kitchen is. There are just so many unique and creative things that you can do in there to help bring about a real change in style and deck out the area with an attractive look that is sure to keep people happy. Of course, with all of the nice things that you can do to make your kitchen area look better, you might be struggling to come up with ideas of your own. After all, many people want to make their own homes look a little more personalized to their tastes, and if you like to do this as well then you will probably want to head out shopping for kitchen decorations and furniture.

One thing that you might want to do is make your kitchen accessible with a door. For example, some kitchens do not look like rooms and are connected to other areas of the household with a hallway that does not have doors. Well, if you chose to install a door in your kitchen you could increase the privacy of the area.

Modern kitchen doors usually tend to look different from the doors that are used for bedrooms and other areas of the home. If you have a look at some of the online stores where many different kitchen doors are being sold you will find that a lot of them tend to be the roll out type. Roller doors are very popular these days and there are a lot of stylish models out there tat you could choose to outfit your kitchen with. It is simply a matter of finding the door that you feel would best suit the interior kitchen space.

If you know a bit about interior design already then you are probably already aware of how important it can be to make sure the interior area is well matched. This is to say that all of the decorative items and other paraphernalia that is in place should help to create a cohesive and well organized environment. Some areas just look a lot more sloppy than others, and these are usually the kitchens that have cheaper furniture design, ugly looking doors, or plain looking decorations that do not really work together to make the whole area look nicer.

The reason for this is usually because most people do not have a good idea of what it takes to beautify the kitchen area. You can avoid making the same mistakes by working hard to develop an attractive interior design – it might not even turn out t be as hard as you think. If you spend some time looking online at interior design web sites and magazines, you will start to see some common design concepts that show up in every photo. This can work as a springboard through which your own creative ideas can be made possible. Finding a nice new kitchen door that looks stylish is just the first step.

Starting Your Business in Redesign, Home Staging and Interior Design – Just Go For It

I recently worked with a woman who was just launching her redesign business. When I had asked her why she thought she needed a business coach she said that she was not ready to begin her business, but wanted to be ready, with clients, at the end of 90 days. As a business coach, one of the first things I do with a new client is assess their business as it stands today, in order to establish the areas in which we need to focus.

As we went over the assessment, I became more and more puzzled as to why she wanted to work with me. Virtually every item listed under my “launching your business” category had been successfully completed. In fact, she had several items completed that I have listed under my “been in business a couple of years” category!

So again, I asked her why she wanted to work with me. Again she responded with, “Because I am not ready.”

After very little conversation, it was obvious she was not going to be ready any time soon. It wasn’t because the business aspects of her work were not covered; it was because she was hiding behind her tasks. The things she “had to do before she could possibly start her business.”

It is very easy to get caught up in the tasks of running your business. Aside from the fact that you actually will be designing for a client, whether you are doing real estate staging or a room redesign, you also have to act as sales manager, marketing manager, bookkeeper and administrative assistant. Don’t forget web designer and public speaker. So put together your to-do lists, and dive in, and in, and in.

There is a reason that large companies have departments to handle the various aspects of a business, because each facet, management, accounting, sales, etc. is a full time job on its own. Especially in the beginning, we typically don’t have the luxury to hire these tasks out, so we take them on ourselves.

I have found that it is very easy to use the “business” aspect of our work as a great big procrastination tool. It’s not as though the individual pieces don’t have to be done, because in fact they do, but the question to ask is “when?” When do they need to be done? Is it really necessary to have a three-page full color brochure ready before you tell all of your friends and neighbors that you are in business? Do you have to have a full blown computer accounting software program before you can accept a check for your services? Hiding behind business tasks is a very easy thing to do. I find that I do it most when the task I really should be doing, the priority task, is a task that I just don’t want to do: for example, invoicing clients. One would think that collecting for your services would be terribly exciting, but for some reason I find the task tedious, and have to use all kinds of tricks and techniques to actually find the motivation to do the work.

I tried to impress upon my coaching client that she could launch her business today! Right now! She could e-mail all of her contacts, and let them know she was open for business. She could call her five closest friends and ask them to call their five closest friends. She could pass out her beautiful fliers in her neighborhood this afternoon! We also talked about how you never can be, nor should you ever really be ready. There is always something new to try and something new to do, so have faith in what you have done to date and get started right now!

It turns out she was right after all. She wasn’t ready. And she has yet to launch her business. But you always have the opportunity to just jump in and go for it.
