    We are off to a flying start in 2012. The company strategy to expand into the Japanese market has already resulted in no less than four capital projects being offered for possible adoption in Japan.

    Further to the presentation of tsunami escape structures to consultants and government departments in Tokyo in September 2011, we are now seeking to make contact with shipyards who possess solid commercial acumen in order that they might benefit from the latest fuel saving technology developed by Maricuda.

    These energy saving projects are aimed directly at fuel efficient propulsion and how economic power conversion can be most effectively achieved by large ocean going cargo ships such as tankers, bulk carriers and container vessels.

    Maricuda has designed these systems primarily for new build vessels but they can equally be retro-fitted to existing vessels by tailoring the design cases to suit the particular vessel while at sea and completing the structural modifications once in dry dock as part of a pre-planned maintenance programme.

    Possible the most significant project in terms of immediate impact on daily life is our tidal energy generator, capable of producing 7MW of usable power from a 1.5knot tidal flow. At these rates approximately 142 units would generate electrical power equivalent to a single nuclear reactor.

    The tidal generator has recently been successfully modeled to demonstrate the operating principles at the core of the design and is now locked into the patenting process.

    So why trade with Japan, why not our own country, why not Europe which is on our doorstep while Japan is almost 6000 miles away.

    Look at the facts. From 1963 to 1980 the percentage of world production of dry cargo and tankers produced by Japanese yards went from 36% to 47%. In the same period the equivalent figures for UK product went from 17.5% to 3.3%. If you are a marine innovation company with ship related technology, where are you most likely to sell it?

    Japan is geographically situated in a high tsunami risk area and also has the means to manufacture tsunami resistant structures. It would be totally illogical to offer a large structural shelter to a country that wasn’t at risk or didn’t have the engineering resources to manufacture the structures.

    Finally our tidal energy generator design is capable of providing a near constant supply of cheap, clean electricity. With earthquakes and tsunamis representing a daily threat to the integrity of nuclear installations, tidal energy is the only serious alternative in a seismically active area.

    Thus the answer to ‘why trade with Japan’ is plain and simple. Maricuda sells technology. We generate new ideas which we then sell to the highest bidder. Japan currently has a need for our products; add to the above a willingness to do business and embrace new ideas and the choice becomes much less difficult to make.

If you have the cash I’d definitely pick up AA. It’s a solid game and you wont rgreet it. If you have any inklin to buy it, I’d do it before AC. AC is supposed to be larger and more complex, so it might seem like a step back if you bought AA after AC. It’s been out for a while so you can probably pick it up for 10-20 bucks anyway. I think I bought it on steam for under 10. DinoRidingJesus

I had a rather hard time chnsoiog just one type of physician I would want to work for. So many of them fascinate me, and with me not really going into any medical field other than support, I never gave this any thought in the past. After reading the list, I am more favorable of working for a neonatologist. It is difficult to think about how neonatologist physicians sometimes have the most difficult job in the world, but I can only imagine how amazing it would be to be a part of saving a baby’s life. I had a coworker once whose baby was born at 36 weeks, and her baby had a lot of heart and lung problems. There were concerns about whether or not they would ever fully develop once she had him, but after many months in the NICU, and many scares that happened during it, the doctors were able to save him and he is now a very healthy 5 year old. It is because of that I have a higher interest in the neonatologist field.I hate to say which type of physician I would care less to work for, and it is because I worry that many will take it the wrong way. When I was 16, I used to help my mom at an assisted living home as a caregiver. We would get to work at 7:00 A.M. every morning to prepare breakfast for four of the elderly men and women that we were caring for. We would then make sure that all bedding was changed, rooms were cleaned, meals were prepared, and appointments were handled. We worked 12 hour days, and they were always grueling. The owner of the home made sure that everyone had their medicine and made it to their doctor appointments on time. However, she was more worried about getting paid for her services than actually helping the elderly. She would yell at them if they did something wrong, and even call them terrible names. My mom reported her and we both quit our job, but it has always left a sting in my heart since then. It is because of my experience with that situation that I do not think I could ever work for a gerontologist. I know that the situations would be much different, but ever since my experience with caring for elderly individuals it is very hard for me to think about assisting a physician in geriatrics because I worry that someone else might treat the elderly in the same way the owner of the home did. I am a firm believer that the elderly deserve the ultimate care and comfort when going through any treatment and aging in general, but I do not think I could ever work in that environment again.

You want a scary thought? I’m 28 (you’re close) and at 28, I’m as close to lenrniag how to drive (16, as I am to 40!) Yeah, time flies. The older you get, the more time you’ve experienced, so it seems to go by faster. At 10 years old, a year was 1/10th of your life. At 28, a year is 1/28th of my life. This explains why time always seems to go faster the older you get.And BTW, Dave Ramsey’s envelope trick really helped me out with budgeting and debt. Total Money Makeover. I’m not a fan of everything he says, but it’s one of the better resources I’ve come across.

For me this is a relatively easy queotisn, but has a pretty complex answer. The specialty I have actually looked forward to working with is OB/GYN. I find that the ability of a woman’s body to produce a child, endure the amount of abuse it takes during a pregnancy, and the amount of pain endured during delivery is amazing. The joy of being able to be present as life enters the world is truly one of the greatest moments in life. To me that would be the best possible option. I also would love working in the operating room with a surgeon. I have experienced the OR quite a few times, and have been on both sides of the table. I have to say I would love to work with any surgeon in the OR except for Orthopedics. The reason behind that is the surgery’s are pretty brutal when it comes to the skeletal system. Having been in the OR with an Orthopedic surgeon and seeing the use of the saws, hammers and other heavy equipment in order to perform the surgery just sends chills up my spine. I know that type of surgery is not for me. I think my favorite surgeries have to be that of the abdominal cavity. The specialties that I would least like to work for are few, and for simple reasons. Pediatrics is not a specialty for me since I have four children of my own. My Aunt is a neonatal nurse practitioner and I followed her in high school and saw the good, the bad, and the ugly so I can honestly say I could not emotionally handle that type of position. Podiatry is also an area I could not see myself working. The reason behind this is pretty silly, but here goes, I very much dislike other peoples feet especially if they are not well kept. I know in the medical field you will encounter feet on a daily basis, but I could not mainly work with feet on an everyday basis. My last specialty is Orthopedics for the reasons I noted above about the barbaric nature of the surgeries and treatments for the musculoskeletal system. Its just not for me.

I do enjoy the way you have presented this particular concern and it does indeed present us some fodder for consideration. Nevertheless, through just what I have personally seen, I simply just wish when the actual remarks stack on that men and women continue to be on point and don’t embark on a soap box associated with some other news of the day. Yet, thank you for this fantastic piece and while I do not go along with the idea in totality, I regard your point of view.

I’ve been surfing on-line more than three hours as of late, yet I by no means found any fascinating article like yours. It’s beautiful price enough for me. In my opinion, if all website owners and bloggers made just right content material as you did, the net will likely be much more helpful than ever before.

Just bee yourself, show your intelligence and most oof all respect everyone since they
are your equals. As compared tto these advanced messengers,
Facebook chat seems quite plain. You can click on one or multiple screen names and type conversations to each other.
Chat roooms (synchronous discussions) seem to hhave few advantages over news groups, listservs, or mailing listss (asynchronous discussions) – with one exception. Instant
messaging is a program that you log into with a sceen name or username.
Proofread Your Work Business chzt might not bbe the same thing aas a report or a presentation, but you
should still poofread your message before you tap that Enter key.

I ignored what my offline family and friends were saying about these online friends, because I felt an instant
connection with some of them. But pretty much, you
just need to click on the Play button and begin. If you happen to be mulling over visiting adult
chat rooms or maybe purchasing the membrship of a site that
offes singles chat, following is a peek at why you should continue
with your contemplated plans. America right now isn’t really a safe place to
live at the moment. Go to Work Path. By ruby : A how to
tutorial about my touch 4g video chat with iPhone 4g, my touchh 4g video chat apps, my touch 4g connection with a pc, Product Reviews ith step by step guide from ruby.

Thiss will give him/her stipulated time to spend in talking online.
Oncce done, you click all the necessary buttons and
await thhe first ding of an invitation to chat.
Adium has been in development for years, and has continued too progreess
with each new release. After using these, you will no longer find Facebook chat to
be a drag, compared to othr instant messengers. All one needs to
ddo is to go on thee internet aand look for them on the search engines.
However, until such a time, at least you know thedre are three decent alternatives to having to log on alll the time in order to chat.

I nnow chitchat on a braznd new hosting service in Austraalia and this server has
no guidelines really, simply guidelines for safe and good chat.

Talk, Explain, Present Facts, Make Kids Aware Keeping an eye on thhe
Internet log book helps you monitor the websites
your child is visiting. Because it is possible to seee or contact the products within the World wide web,
outlets should head tto a little more effort to supply youu with technical
specifications, which will allow you to compare everything you’re obtaining in your funds throughout vareious internet sites.
Moderators assess tthe chat rooms, and if anyone chazts in an inappropriate manner, his/her chat access to the particular room is blocked.
This is a positive attitude.

I remember world events being shared with my online friends.
However, there are certain rules of etiquette for chatting onlinbe that make it more tolerable and less stressful.
So, be careful who you private chat with. These mainstream
media websites distribute news utilizing journalistic standards,
but are marred by the hidden agenda of tneir editors.
Everyday a person is missing because of the internet or phopne chat.
I did not geet charged until I clicked on the hire expert button. 4) I only visit G-rated rooms.

Most of them access pornography at a very tender age.
There are several websites that offer help for translating these letters imto understandable sentences or phrases.
Tex chat iss just anolther trend to geet your
money. Anywhere in the world where there is a place for
people to gather and communicate, there will eventually be bullies.
He started talking marriage one minute,then put her off the next
with “you’re too young for me and need time to grow.” She’s in her
early twenties. A better way iis to be introduced by someeone you doo know and trust.

Life is all about this kind of communication and chat forums wilpl ensure that
you have a good platform. This will lead to blockage of suuch websites.
Randy, Mike H and the other Mike all treated us
girls with respect as if we were sisters to them iit was great.
Pick up your phone or login to your computer and try the frfee
treial phone chat now. Parents should enssure that their kids are emotionally involved in the family.
In thgis case, rules will enable yyou know how to conhduct it.

This option is found nnear the far ight of the menu.
It really doees not matter where you are, politics will always spark different emotions.
These are the pesople who make it possible for a forum to be fun or exciting.
I’ve heared pre-release music, live music and comedy acts.

To now a lot of people and to socialize amidst friends iss good enough and of huge importance as these are the years of your prosperity where you can find your loved one who can ultimatsly lead youu in all walks of your life.
Another disadvantqge of onliune chat is that there are
some incidents of rape annd other hideous crimjes that stafted
as a mere simple chat betwedn the two parties.
Both these fantastic handsets aree preloaded with plenty of hi-tech and lucrative which allows users
to perfform several tasks.

The instant messenger, launched by Facebook, is a great online
application that alows you to chat with friends anywhere, anytime.

A built-in browser also gives users the ability tto click on web
links. Is this a real way to find love or is it just a way for another
business to profit on feelings? However, it is always advised
to guide your child in the right track while he is accessing onliine chat rooms.
Some chat rooms discourage typing in caps as this is usuallly seen as shouting.

Facebook chat emoticons are not capable to signify some subtleties in feelings.
Each user represents a nodee in this group, and every tjme a message is sent by a node, it
is delivered to all the other nodes in the group.
Typonese hhas become moe oof a laughing aloud type of language
to thos who chat on a daily basis. To aid customers triumph
over this problem, Facebook made a host of smiley faces that Facebook end users can utilize ass representation for some of ther feelings
or facial expressions. Another wonderful chat personality is that of the
“attention hog”. Exactly what are the strategies of finding yourself in thhe
grup which will enjoy success?

These conversations should not have anyone worried about the taking over by artificial intelligence any time soon.
Therefore, forums are in plenty and you just have to think of anny topic.
Don’t take anyone met in a chat rom at face value. You
can therefore rely on tthe service to give you the besdt in chatting facilities.
Make sure that the chat rooms for kids that your children chat aare genuine and places no
harm on thei way. They can interact wwith kids and establish global contact with
