first_imgRupee gained in early trade on Friday by 19 paise, as it opened at 59.14 per dollar compared to previous day’s closing value at 59.33-a-dollar.European Central Bank’s meeting on 5 June has brought about a positive response in rupee and stocks and it is likely to later announce policy easing measures to tackle the pitfalls of disinflations.Pramit Brahmbhatt of Veracity told moneycontrol to expect the rupee in a range of 59-60 per dollar.”The stimulus from ECB to the banks has spread positive sentiment globally. Taking cues from this, we expect local equities to trade strong resulting in appreciation of rupee,” Brahmbhatt pointed out.But, at 10:00 am, the rupee declined to 59.1950 from 59.14, while USD-HKD and USD-SGD surged by 0.00 percent and +0.005 percent respectively.Hence, among 13 Asia-Pacific Currencies, only two appeared to be surging.The Sensex and Nifty surged at 25,232.48 and 7,522.60 at 10:00 am today and gainers at early trade in BSE were ONGC, DLF, GAIL, BPCL and Reliance.

first_imgBlack and silver experimental vehicles parked facing south in Sacramento, California on July 17, 2010. Keeping cool using the summer heat More information: eetd.lbl.gov/news-archives/news-cool-cars.htmleetd.lbl.gov/newsletter/nl19/eetd-nl19-1-cool.htmlPaper reference: “Potential benefits of solar reflective car shells: Cooler cabins, fuel savings and emission reductions.” Ronnen Levinson, Heng Pan, George Ban-Weiss, Pablo Rosado, Riccardo Paolini, and Hashem Akbari, was recently published in the journal Applied Energy (Volume 88, pp. 4343–4357). Citation: Silver and white cars are cooler, says study (2011, October 25) retrieved 18 August 2019 from https://phys.org/news/2011-10-silver-white-cars-cooler.html Comparison of roof surface temperatures measured during soaking and cooling trials. Explore further © 2011 PhysOrg.com The numbers continue to take on special significance when extended nationwide. An improvement of 2 to 2 percent in fuel economy, scaled to the fleet of light-duty vehicles in the United States, represents savings of gallons of gas in the billions, if these design changes are adopted by the automotive industry.White, silver, and other light colors are coolest, reflecting about 60 percent of sunlight but there are dark “cool” colors that can also stay cooler than traditional dark colors. When dark surfaces are needed for aesthetics or to reduce brightness, one can use special “cool-colored” materials that stay moderately cool by reflecting only the invisible component of sunlight. Solar reflective paints can decrease the ‘soak’ temperature of the air in a car that has been parked in the sun.Manufacturing designers looking more closely into recipes for pigmented coatings that maximize solar reflectance colors would find plenty of interesting research into cool colors at the Berkeley Lab. Its researchers have been looking into roofs and cool colors for some years. They have been measuring the solar spectral reflectance (reflectance versus wavelength over the solar spectrum) of commercially available pigments. The research team has developed a pigment database describing a variety of colors, including browns, blues, purples, greens, and reds, that are cool, in that they are highly reflective to near-infrared radiation. Ronnen Levinson, scientist in the Heat Island Group at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory, is lead author of the study. The research was published in Applied Energy.The researchers had two cars in the sun for an hour, one black and the other silver, parked facing south, in Sacramento, California. The silver Honda Civic (shell SR 0.57) had a cabin air temperature of about 5-6°C (9-11°F) lower than an identical black car (shell SR 0.05). A silver (or white) shell would allow for a lower-capacity air conditioner as well. The cars were run through five identical cycles of soaking in the sun. Each cycle consisted of an hour with the air conditioners off, followed by a half hour of cooling with the air conditioners running at maximum. The researchers measured the roof, ceiling, dashboard, windshield, seat, door, vent air and cabin air temperatures in each car along with weather conditions in the lot.Overall, the numbers compiled in this car-color exercise found that using white or silver paint instead of black paint would raise fuel economy by 0.44 mpg (2.0 percent); would decrease carbon dioxide emissions by 1.9 percent, and reduce other automotive emissions by about 1 percent. Air conditioning in cars not only decreases fuel economy but also increases tailpipe emissions of greenhouse gases and air pollutants. In this sense, cool-color cars influence both the driver and the planet. (PhysOrg.com) — From an environment standpoint, silver and white cars are cool; black cars are not. Researchers at the Berkeley Lab Environmental Energy Technologies Division (EETD) say that the color of your car affects your car’s fuel economy and how seriously you contribute to pollution. A light-colored shell reflects more sunlight than a dark car shell. The cooler the color, the cooler the cabin air, and the less of a need to run your air conditioner.

first_imgTowel or bear? You decide. The budget-conscious are no doubt drawn to the fact that so many attractions are free of charge once you’re at Butlins. You don’t have to count your pennies or say no to just another ride when you’re at the vintage-style fairground complete with waltzers, dodgems and carousel. A few rides and attractions carry an addition charge, but the vast majority are free and queues are virtually non-existent. My daughter was keen to visit the fairground as often as possible, as well as the neighbouring games arcade with its tuppenny push machines. It was well worth paying a small extra fee to hire a three-seater bike and spend a happy half hour exploring corners we hadn’t seen on foot. We also paid just a few pounds for a round of crazy golf. Read More’Only seeing your parents at mealtimes, Butlin’s was a children’s paradise’   Study your site map well, as there are hidden treasures waiting to be uncovered. We enjoyed seeing snakes and other critters in the Discovery Studio and played endless games of Cluedo after stumbling across a board games lending library in a quiet corner. Search for them and you’ll find some nostalgic remnants of early Butlin’s, including carriages from a monorail and old-fashioned chalets. Anyone for ice cream? But once we stepped inside the accommodation it had Butlin’s written through it like a stick of rock. From the Skegness cushions on the primary coloured sofas to the wooden pin the tail on the donkey game on the wall, the decoration was inspired, retro and a brilliant reminder of the heritage of the brand. There are numerous different types of accommodation at Butlin’s, with numerous different prices. Ours was spacious, well-appointed and spotlessly clean. The big stage shows are so popular that some people start queueing hours in advance. There’s really no need to leave the site at all, and we didn’t touch our car until it was time to go home. We did walk off site to paddle in the sea and build sandcastles, before a bracing stroll along the prom to get the full British holiday resort experience. You don’t even need to do that though, as Butlin’s has created a mini beach inside the resort complete with outsized seaside accessories for the full selfie experience. Like so many other aspects of Butlin’s, the food experience is what you make it. I’m sure some families arrive with their weekly shop, or buy ingredients from the two small supermarkets. But if you want to eat out there’s a varied selection of cuisines to tempt you. Billy the Butlin’s bear. We spent four nights at Butlin’s Skegness, staying in a two bedroomed Seaside Apartment. Among the more exclusive accommodation on the site, at first glance it looked a world apart from the old Butlin’s stereotype. If anything it looked more like a rival holiday resort, the one renowned for being middle class and located in wooded areas. 1950s advert for Butlins One thing we did struggle with was figuring out where to start with the entertainment. There’s so much going on, so many varied things happening at the same time, you almost want to clone yourself to take it all in. We visited during the school holidays with my eight-year-old daughter, and discovered a packed programme designed to provide something for adults and children of all ages. Helpfully, guests are given printed guides to exactly what is on when and where plus details of the age ranges it is most suited to. You can also download an app with everything from interactive maps to restaurant opening times and menus. center_img Get the biggest Daily stories by emailSubscribeSee our privacy noticeThank you for subscribingSee our privacy noticeCould not subscribe, try again laterInvalid EmailButlin’s is all poolside knobbly knee competitions and poky chalets the size of the average garden shed, isn’t it? Come on, climb out of the 1950s. If it’s been some time since you last visited the original British holiday camp then you may be surprised to discover it’s undergone something of a renaissance since Gladys Pugh last said Good Morning Campers. Rather like a bag of pick n’ mix sweets, a short break to Butlin’s can contain whatever you choose to put into it. If you’re content with nothing but fizzy cola bottles then they’re there for the taking, but you can opt for mint humbugs or luxury toffee as well. A game of crazy golf whiles away a happy hour. We saw Titan the Robot, live wrestling by men in tiny, shiny pants, a puppet show and were encourage to exercise by giant Mr Men. But that was just the tip of the big show iceberg with other offerings including a circus, magic acts, a Sleeping Beauty panto, Paddington Bear and much more. The shows were so popular that some people started queuing hours in advance just to get a seat near the front. And if you consider the ticket price to see similar calibre acts at theatres elsewhere, you can easily see why lots of Butlin’s guests pack their holiday with as many of them as possible. Splash Waterworld ranked near the top of our Butlin’s highlights list. We enjoyed it so much that we spent hours moving between the different pools and water features, two days in a row. The outdoor rapids were a favourite – so much so that we stayed outdoors in our swimsuits even when it rained. A Butlin’s full English. There was so much to choose from in the Scoop ice cream parlour that it took quite some time to make a decision, then of course we had to visit again the next day to try a flavour we’d missed. I can confirm that bubblegum flavour ice cream does indeed turn your tongue blue. We had a premium dining package, which included breakfast and evening meal each day at either The Deck Restaurant or The Yacht Club. We hadn’t expected so much choice, so much fresh food and the lack of queues. It’s self-service, with much of the food cooked in front of diners, and there are no limits on what you can have or how many times you can top your plate up. Over the four days we had roast dinners, poached Salmon, rainbow-coloured vegetable stir fries and thick wedges of cheesecake. You could have burger and chips for every meal or you could have four courses rounded off with cheese and crackers if you wanted. Pin the tail on the Butlin’s donkey. Butlin’s is much more than that 1950s cliché. It’s a well-rounded family resort that can be exceptionally good value if you want it to be, or a more luxurious escape if that is what your heart desires. And there isn’t a Gladys Pugh in sight.last_img read more
