Green Up Your Carpet Life-Cycle

first_imgSome background on carpetMost carpet has three primary components: the soft tufted face fiber, the primary backing through which the face fiber is punched, and the secondary backing (the visible back side that locks the face fibers in place). Most residential carpet installations also include a separate cushion or pad.The face fibers in residential carpet are most often nylon or polyolefin, both thermoplastics, and recyclable. The primary backing in carpet is usually polypropylene (another thermoplastic that can be recycled) and the secondary backing is either a latex material or polyvinyl chloride (PVC). Carpet cushion or pad is usually polyurethane foam, also recyclable. While each of these materials is recyclable individually, it gets tricky when they are mixed or bonded together.Tearing carpet outThis can be a nasty job and the path to the dumpster almost irresistible. But we toss more than 2.5 million tons of carpet a year in this country and lots of work has been done to make recycling of carpet and carpet pad possible.In 2002, the carpet industry, key government agencies, and non-profit environmental organizations, created the Carpet America Recovery Effort (CARE). CARE has always had ambitious goals for carpet diversion, starting with 40% by 2012. CARE’s latest report shows a total diversion rate in 2009 of around 25%.There are currently 72 CARE reclamation partners in the US; you can find the one nearest you using the interactive CARE map. Many CARE locations also take carpet padding. There is also an interactive location tool for carpet and carpet padding recycling at Earth911. If you don’t find any carpet or carpet pad recycling facility within striking distance, talk with your local municipal recycling or solid waste coordinator. It may be possible to work with your town or city on a collection location that then trucks the material to an existing facility.Recycling costs for carpet and pad are high; while it may be cheaper to recycle than to toss in the landfill, the materials are not high enough in value to mean you will get paid for the material.Selecting flooringNow that you have the old carpet torn out, what flooring material do you use to replace it? Wall-to-wall carpet has lots of advantages: it is relatively inexpensive, it’s comfortable to walk (and crawl) on, and it deadens sound fairly well. And many homebuyers like or even expect certain rooms to be carpeted. But carpet is not without its disadvantages: it is not nearly as durable as hard-surface flooring materials, it is difficult or not feasible to repair rather than replace when damaged, and it can harbor quite a number of undesirables, such as dust mites, pet dander, and moisture.Here are some recommendations for other flooring materials and for greener approaches to carpet.1. Refinish and rug what you uncover – many hard and softwood floors live underneath wall-to-wall carpeting. Refinishing these floors and using area rugs (which can much more easily be properly cleaned or replaced) is a good combination of durability, comfort, appearance, and indoor air quality.2. Consider carpet tile – While this approach is much more common in commercial settings, it has a number of advantages. Carpet tiles have a tight durable face fiber and can easily be patched and repaired.3. Look for greener carpet – Carpet manufacturers are increasingly offering products with recycled content and better air quality profiles. Also look for carpet with the Carpet and Rug Institute (CRI) Green Label.4. Look for greener carpet pad – There are a wide variety of greener carpet pad materials, including natural materials, such as jute or animal hair, and synthetic materials such as rebond.5. Mechanically fasten carpet – Carpet can be installed without any adhesives; stick (pardon the word choice) with nailed-down tack strips for installation.6. Protect carpet from the outdoors – simple things like shoe benches and walk-off mats at entrances to the home and encouraging a no outdoor-shoes policy in your homeowner’s manual can make wall-to-wall carpeting a much better performing flooring.7. Avoid carpet in high traffic and high moisture areas – Bathrooms, kitchens and basements are tough areas for wall-to-wall carpeting. Other less absorbent sheet goods are a better fit in these areas, but let’s save vinyl flooring for another blog!last_img read more

Samsung Galaxy Gear Smartwatch Could Be Coming To The Arm Race

first_imgRole of Mobile App Analytics In-App Engagement Related Posts The Rise and Rise of Mobile Payment Technology A Samsung smartwatch is likely in the works and it is coming to a Galaxy near you.In a patent filed with the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office, Samsung details a smartwatch concept it appears to be calling “Galaxy Gear.” According to the patent, the device is a watch or a bangle that can connect to the Internet and transmit data and messages.The description from the patent filing:Wearable digital electronic devices in the form of a wristwatch, wrist band or bangle capable of providing access to the Internet and for sending and receiving phone calls, electronic mails and messages; wearable electronic handheld devices in the form of a wristwatch, wrist band or bangle for the wireless receipt, storage and/or transmission of data and messages and for keeping track of or managing personal information; smart phones; tablet computers; portable computers.A patent filing does not necessarily mean that a company will build a particular product. If you look back into the annals of patents given to tech companies, you will find such items as an iPod-like click-wheel iPhone. That product, thankfully, never made it to market. But Apple’s engineers and designers patented it. Samsung smartwatch patent. Image source: Moveplayer.Smartwatches are an inevitability. Between the fascination with smartphones and tablets and the emerging trend of the “quantified self,” the top mobile manufacturers will make, at the very least, a small foray into smartwatches.When that will be, no one is quite sure. The initial thought was that companies like Apple, Google and Samsung would have consumer-ready products by the end of 2013. That may still happen but there has been a lack of tangible news (outside of these types of patent filings) that say that smartwatches will hit the mass consumer market any time soon. Yet with each successive patent, we have a better idea of what these smartwatches will do. Samsung wants it to be a device that can act like a smartphone on your wrist and be able to have its own wireless data connection (which stands apart from other smartwatch rumors that indicate the wearable devices will have to be paired with smartphones for data connectivity). Images from Korean news site Moveplayer showing Korean patents filings for potential Samsung smartwatch.

Is the self-driving car just too much for Apple?

first_imgRelated Posts Break the Mold with Real-World Logistics AI and… David Curry Earlier reports of a potential shift in focus at Apple’s self-driving car division, from hardware to software and services, have been confirmed by anonymous sources speaking to the Associated Press.While the article doesn’t declare the iCar—the name chosen by most onlookers for Apple’s car—dead, it does suggest the iPhone maker is more open to collaboration with automakers.See Also: Did Apple miss the mark on innovation this week?The division has seen a few key changes and talent hires in the past 12 months. Apple veteran Bob Mansfield has taken over operations and Dan Dodge, the founder of operating system QNX, joined sometime in the past six months.QNX is the operating system that powers a considerable amount of car infotainment systems. Apple is keen to expand in that area, after unveiling CarPlay last year.AP’s source gives the impression the team wasn’t worried about the difficulty of building an automobile at the start, but as development grew, the issues started to become more visible. The automobile industry is highly regulated as well, another factor that soured Apple’s car goals.A hardware business that Apple wants to leave?The report says Apple might look to license the software to automakers, though that seems unlikely. Apple’s scripture declares that it must build the hardware, software, and services to provide a meaningful experience.A more likely arrangement would be Apple partnering with a specific automaker that manufactures the car, following Apple’s design instructions. This would be a similar arrangement Apple has with Foxconn, which manufactures the iPhone and iPad.Apple would then stuff the car with a self-driving system and infotainment and sell it.Another option, one that might be prudent now that the European Union and other organizations are looking into Apple’s tax structure, could be an automotive acquisition.It has enough money to purchase Mercedes-Benz, BMW, Volvo and still have $75 billion on hand, if you take the three company’s market cap and add 10 percent. Apple hasn’t been the biggest spender in Silicon Valley however, so it would be a grand statement of where it’s future profits lie if it made a huge purchase in the next few years.

Social Is One to Many

first_img Get the Free eBook! Want to master cold calling? Download my free eBook! Many would have you believe that cold calling is dead, but the successful have no fear of the phone; they use it to outproduce their competitors. Download Now Social Media was once called Social Media Marketing because, when marketers grabbed hold of the tools, they recognized them as one to many. The battle over whether or not the tools are for community or marketing can be traced back to 1999, and I offer the best of all evidence, The Cluetrain Manifesto.Your Facebook post is worthless if it is only seen by one person (unless that is how you define your market). Your Tweets are seen by all of your followers. If your tweet was seen by only one person, you wouldn’t need Twitter. Now LinkedIn offers a publishing platform, recognizing that part of the value of having a network is being able to communicate with that network.Social. Selling?Let’s pretend you found your dream client on LinkedIn. You research the client, looking at their background, their interests, what groups they belong to, and maybe you find something they created and posted themselves. There is nothing social about that. It’s research. The only thing that has changed is the tool you have used.Now you reach out make a connection request. That’s a one-to-one activity, and it feels like sales because you are asking for a commitment (albeit a very small commitment, often one with as much significance as being someone’s friend on Facebook).What do you do next?Let’s say you are one of the nervous kind who wouldn’t dare email your dream client to ask for an appointment. Nor would you dare to pick up the phone call them, cold calling being dead and all. So you decide to publish on LinkedIn, hoping that your dream client will read your excellent opinion on the industry. Maybe you believe that, upon recognizing your brilliance, your dream client will pick up the phone and call you, begging you to come in so they can give your their business. Publishing is one-to-many, and that makes it marketing and that makes it not sales (it’s publishing!).Pretend that your published post didn’t grab your dream client’s attention. I know, it was a great post. Just pretend. You and your dream client are both members of an industry group. You find a question your dream client has asked, and you post a killer response. That post is public, so it’s mostly one-to-many. But wait. Your dream client responds to your comment. Now it’s one-to-one. But there was no ask, no commitment, and you’re not one inch closer to a deal than you were before he commented. No, you’re still not selling.No one is a greater proponent of the social marketing toolkit than me (except maybe Koka Sexton, Jill Rowley, and Jamie Shanks).You have never had a better set of tools for building your personal brand. You have never been able to project the value you create to the people who would most benefit from what you do as easily and effectively as you can now. If you aren’t using the tools, you are woefully behind right now. The line between marketing and sales is so blurry right now it’s difficult to tell where one ends and the other begins. So let me draw the line for you.One to many is marketing (your posts, your tweets, your pictures, etc.). One to one with no ask and no commitment-gaining is nurturing, a more personal form of marketing. One to one with an ask and a commitment gained is selling.Directly asking one-to-one on social is taboo (but Gary Vaynerchuck does it without fear). It looks self-oriented. The social folks generally look down on pitching. Pitching one to many is marketing. Pitching one to one over social is weird.Directly asking for commitments face-to-face or on the telephone is personal. It’s one to one, as it should be.last_img read more

The Hustler’s Playbook: Success is Your Auditor

first_imgSuccess is your auditor. It keeps a very accurate, very precise, accounting of your balances. It will never allow you to withdraw more than you’ve deposited, and you have to pay in advance for any amount you withdraw.Time Invested: Success knows exactly how much time you have invested in the areas you want to create success. You can’t lie about how much time you’ve spent, and you can’t exaggerate with Success monitoring your every waking moment. Sure, you’ve done a little bit of what you need to do, but because you haven’t paid the time required in full, you don’t yet have what you want.Hard Work Invested: Success is extremely stingy with what it doles out. It’s looking for hard work. A little bit of hard work produces no success. The payment is too small for Success to permit you to make any withdrawal. For a good amount of hard work, Success will allow you to have a taste of what you want, but no more. Real success comes at the price of a massive amount of hard work, more than you imagine. If you aren’t willing to sustain the deposits of hard work necessary to pay for your success, Success won’t allow you to have it.Growth Invested: Your auditor doesn’t think you are good enough for the level of success you want. Success is keeping score on how much you’ve improved yourself. Success is looking for real, transformational growth, not this dabbling around the edges, never committing to what you know you need to do, and your excuse making. The kind of success you want doesn’t accrue to people who aren’t big enough to generate it. You have to grow, and Success knows whether or not you are growing or standing still.Success is something you pay for in advance. You can’t have what you want until it is paid in full. If you want to sustainable success, you have to make equally sustainable deposits. Essential Reading!

SC declines plea on Bihar AES deaths

first_imgThe Supreme Court on Friday refrained from intervening on a petition to examine the shortage of doctors in Bihar after the mass child deaths in Muzaffarpur district.A Bench, led by Chief Justice of India Ranjan Gogoi, was urged by the petitioner, Manohar Pratap, to look into the large number of vacancies. But the Bench refused to do so and the Chief Justice said the judiciary was facing enough challenges in filling judicial vacancies. With this, the court disposed of pleas for directions following the child deaths, including for constitution of a medical board, advertisement of preventive steps and infrastructure improvement. It expressed satisfaction with the steps taken by the government.In a recent affidavit, the Centre informed the court of the constitution of an “inter-disciplinary, high quality” research team to ascertain the cause of the acute encephalitis syndrome (AES) outbreak. It said the decision was taken to “save precious human lives in future”. The government said the AES in Muzaffarpur dated back to 1995.On July 2, the Bihar government said the steps taken by the health authorities had helped to lower the AES fatality rate to 19%, less than the global rate of 30%.last_img read more
