For clean energy, think small (nano small)

For clean energy, think small (nano small) | OH&S And Aviation By Elijah Ceeney | Scoop.it
Inexpensive nanotubes – sheets of carbon rolled into pipes thinner than a human hair – may be the key to making hydrogen fuel cleaner and less expensive. A new study shows how nanotubes could bring clean energy technologies closer within reach.
Elijah Ceeney's insight:

 

Another great example of nanotechnologies and how they are being used for a better future.

If we could harness hydrogen in a cost effective and zero emissions process it could potentially revolutionize the energy sector.

 

The Idea of being involved in futuristic technologies and research has always ignited a curiosity.

Renewable energy is an industry the world cannot escape as it is imperative that we find ways to harness energy without the need of fossil fuels. Being a part of this technology is something I would like to be potentially involved in the future.

Workplace injuries in Manningham and Yarra Ranges in the last five years cost $6.9m in wages, treatment and expenses | OH&S And Aviation By Elijah Ceeney | Scoop.it
A NEW campaign is encouraging young workers to speak up about safety as new figures show the cost of workplace accidents.
Elijah Ceeney's insight:

This is a great example of how much more e need to do on the issue of workplace safety.

Victoria has the best record of injuries in the country for young workers but still yield 15,000 injured workers a yearly

 

Being a welder I have personally noticed in the past 18 months there has been noticeable difference in employer’s duty of car regarding work place safety.

 

This article shows one of the reason why i am debating on perusing a career in safety.

Safety in Australia has a strong future, there is a lot more work to be done to reach a goal no injuries or fatalities

First F-35B Arrives at Marine Corps Air Station | OH&S And Aviation By Elijah Ceeney | Scoop.it
The first F-35B Lightning II Joint Strike Fighter assigned to Marine Fighter Attack Training Squadron 501(VMFAT-501) arrived at Marine Corps Air Station Beaufort, July 17. The aircraft is the first to join VMFAT-501 at MCAS Beaufort since relocating from Eglin Air Force Base, Fla. late last week.
Elijah Ceeney's insight:

This is a milestone achievement for the next generation fighter jets.

The amount of technology and money being utilized for this program is astonishing.

This project has been clouded by controversy from sceptics.

The people who are directly involved in the project have stated their content with how the project is evolving.

There will always be unforeseen obstacles that poses a challenge in any new technology being developed.

The new technologies IT departments need to embrace

The new technologies IT departments need to embrace | OH&S And Aviation By Elijah Ceeney | Scoop.it

I am extremely interested in new technologies being developed.

I found this article particular interesting from many points of views.

The point that made the most impact is utilizing human augmentation technology to improve employee productivity and safety.

 

There would be a lot of legal issues to overcome if this technology was to be developed for a workplace environment. This technology would raise debate over whether or not it would be violation for a employer to have a worker have a permanent augmentation or require surgery.

 

I know that mining companies do have similar technology embedded in mobile equipment operators hard hats.

The smart caps monitor brainwaves and alert the operator of fatigue.

In the past IT departments have always been about crunching numbers and processing data. But emerging technologies are beginning to take IT into unfamiliar areas that in turn have an impact on the wider operation of the business.

All-electric plane heralds future of green aviation - tech - 01 May 2014 - New Scientist

All-electric plane heralds future of green aviation - tech - 01 May 2014 - New Scientist | OH&S And Aviation By Elijah Ceeney | Scoop.it

After last week's flight of an electric-only plane, how long before we start flying in hybrid passenger jets?

Elijah Ceeney's insight:

The aviation industry is investing significantly addressing the need for more sustainable energy sources for future viability.
It has become extremely clear in the last decade.

The price of maintaining a profitable company due to the rising price of fossil fuels is becoming an increasing issue.

 

Whether or not the aviation industry trend of investing in renewable energies for flying is mainly for environmental purposes is highly unlikely.

But nevertheless it is beneficial for the environment and aviation companies.

Malaysia Airlines MH17: Australian expert questions flight's Ukraine route

Malaysia Airlines MH17: Australian expert questions flight's Ukraine route | OH&S And Aviation By Elijah Ceeney | Scoop.it
The former head of safety at Qantas has questioned whether Malaysia Airlines flight MH17 should have been flying over the eastern Ukraine.
Elijah Ceeney's insight:

Another tragedy in the aviation industry and coincidently from the same airline.

But this time it has brought more attention to a subject that has been prevalent in the media this year.

The conflict in eastern Ukraine involving Russian backed separatist.

Maybe john Lennon’s plea for world peace might have to sit on the backburner for a while longer.

Let the blame game begin between the conflicting parties

How China’s coal cap makes it a leader in tackling climate change : Renew Economy

How China’s coal cap makes it a leader in tackling climate change : Renew Economy | OH&S And Aviation By Elijah Ceeney | Scoop.it
Coal caps mean China may be doing more to tackle climate change than the EU and US.
Elijah Ceeney's insight:

 

It is great to see the world’s biggest polluter taking action against environmental change.
This is especially comforting at a time where Australian government voted to take backwards approach.

The effect humans have had on the environment has been immense in the past century.

The quest for more advanced technologies has put tremendous strain on the environment to feed our desire for easy and effective energies.

Coal has been our backbone for providing energy but the coal reserve are running out.

Hopefully in the next decade there is a substantial shift in finding and implementing renewable energy to feed our power hungry societies.

Printing a human kidney

Printing a human kidney | OH&S And Aviation By Elijah Ceeney | Scoop.it
Surgeon Anthony Atala demonstrates an early-stage experiment that could someday solve the organ-donor problem: a 3D printer that uses living cells to output a transplantable kidney. Using similar technology, Dr. Atala's young patient Luke Massella received an engineered bladder 10 years ago; we meet him onstage.
Elijah Ceeney's insight:

This was an amazing video to watch.

The example of how 3D printing could change the world of medicine is astonishing.

There still would have to be a lot of regulations put in place to oversee this method of regenerative medicine.

But it looks like a promising future for everyone.

The other thought that comes to mind is that if we could grow human tissue and organs then how long could we live?.

Inequality and poverty have taken center stage in American politics in the years since the recession. Fast food workers have raised the profile of low-wage w...

Elijah Ceeney's insight:

The standard of Occupational health and safety has grown significantly in the last decade. But in this article it argues that since the global financial crisis safety standards amongst low wage earners has declined compared to middle class workers.

Thus leaving a gap between the social-economical classes.

 

This article states that court rulings, financial troubles and time frame faults in providing standards for safe working guidelines. The other main issue raised by this article is the way in which injuries are reported to governing agencies.

The main focus seems to be on fatalities and life altering injuries. Whilst these are very significant events. We should not forget or marginalise less serious injuries as they effect more of the workplace population who fall victim to work place injuries.
