To be honest, I only see a large display in the sun.
I don't know where the temperature sensor is.

Re: 2020 USA elections poll - Biden VS Trump - Biden wins

From the moment the voter stops punishing the politician who lies to him, there is no reason for the politician to refrain from shamelessly lying (literally: without any shame) to tell the voter this that he wishes to hear in order to be elected.

Re: Solar generator set

I think 36V is not the right choice (unless you want to directly power devices designed to operate on 36V battery ... but these devices are much more expensive than their 220V equivalents), indeed consumer inverters are often designed to be supplied with 12V ...

Re: Perovskite solar cells - calcium titanate

So 6 years to go from the laboratory to the prototype ...

And how much more for industrial production?

I note in passing that the "exceptional" laboratory performance of 21% was beaten meanwhile by a silicon cell.

Re: After Coronavirus

I have always said that the collateral consequences of shutting down the economy due to covid-19 would kill more people than the virus. This does not imply that there would not have been even more deaths in total without the "shut down" ... Global assessment to be made by the end of 2021 ... We cannot do the ...

Re: Did you work during the confinement, your impressions ....

Efficiency is the work task that is carried out in a day ... or any other comparable unit of time office VS teleworking .... If you need 8 hours of office to achieve what you can do at home in 6h the calculation is quickly seen ... Except that in many trades, we never do two ...

Re: The biggest financial crash in history will happen in 2019

They have come closer by drastically reducing the volume of cash in circulation. But it seems the Swedish government has been backing down since the start of the year. https://www.letemps.ch/societe/suede-revient-largent-liquide https: //www.mieuxvivre-votreargent.fr/vie-pratique/20 ...

Re: Did you work during the confinement, your impressions ....

I do not see how teleworking could be a source of reduced efficiency so (except what I have just mentioned) quite the contrary ... From what I see, many managers are afraid that efficiency will drop ... and don't want to take the risk. The big difficulty is that pers ...

Re: Did you work during the confinement, your impressions ....

Not keeping some of the teleworking tasks as much as possible would be a serious mistake ... I am not talking only from a health point of view but from a social (quality of life) and ecological point of view ... in the long term therefore! Some directorates are not of the same opinion. The only subject that matters is financial ...

Do we lift the handles and the weight of the cart does the rest?

Or do we put our foot on the bar of the cart?

Or do we attach the cart by its chain and pull the handles backwards?
