A better climate from day one
February 20, 2015
By Dick Duindam The decision of broiler farmer Bernard Wolters’ (54) to use ionisation lamps was an unintended consequence of the transition of regular illumination lamps to the use of LED lamps in his houses. 
This liberated two out of four rows of lighting fixtures. Wolters: “The vendor of the company Freshlight-Agri, which installed the LED lamps suggested to place ionisation lamps in the released fittings. We treated it like a laughing matter at first, as at that time we had no idea what the function of those lamps could be.”Normal fitting, so easily placeable Initially, at the beginning of 2014 in one house 42 ionisation lamps were placed in the present luminaires (about 55 m2 surface per lamp) with a production of 5 million units/m3/second each. The lamps have normal E27 fittings, making them easy to be installed. Next, weekly measuring’s were conducted in order to see the lamps’ actual effects.

Events are now on social media
January 07, 2015
Social media: Social media has given a new turn to the entire events industry. Earlier, events were just executed on-ground and then broadcast on television. Now, it is all on social media. The support that social media has rendered to the events business is tremendous. Earlier, around 5,000 people would attend events on-ground. Today, with social media, an event can engage 5-15 million people at a time. They can share or post messages and pictures from events taking place across the world via Facebook, Twitter or Instagram. Social media has definitely been the game changer for the events industry in terms of marketing promotions or even the way people engage themselves during an event on social media.

Li-Fi Lighting the Way
January 01, 1970
FULL TEXT Communicating with light is nothing new. Ancient Chinese soldiers used signal fires along the Great Wall to alert one another of an impending attack. Laser beams have been used for shortrange voice and data transmission in line-of-sight and fiber-optic applications for decades. Now, building on an idea first proposed by University of Edinburgh professor Harald Haas, scientific teams and startups are putting a 21stcentury spin on the idea, piggybacking high-speed broadband Internet access onto ordinary room lighting. Dubbed Li-Fi in Haas's 2011 TED Talk, the system takes advantage of LED lighting. As the name implies, Li-Fi is analogous to Wi-Fi, using light instead of the radio frequency (RF) spectrum. The system takes advantage of the ability to flicker LED light bulbs billions of times a second, far too fast to register with the human eye, by modulating current. The systems can operate even when the bulbs are dimmed to the point they appear to be off.
