A few nice auto insurance images I found: Aerial transfer bridge (ferry), Duluth, Minnesota, ca.1920 (CHS-5034) Image by Fæ Wikimedia Commons image page Description Description ”Aerial transfer bridge (ferry), Duluth, Minnesota, ca.1920 Photograph of the aerial transfer bridge (ferry), at Duluth, Minnesota, ca.1920. The bridge stands several stories tall and was built to ferry people from one side of the lake to the other. In the middle of the metal truss bridge, suspended from a moving metal under-carriage, is the ferry car that transports passengers. People can be seen waiting on the right side of the lake, near a building. On the left side of the lake are a few buildings and houses. In the foreground, there is a pier-like walkway.; "Completed in 1905, Duluth’s new Aerial Transfer Bridge carried up to 62-1/2 tons including automobiles, horses and wagons, and pedestrian traffic. It took 5 cents and about one minute to transit the 300-foot wide ship canal one way, and a crossing was made about every 5 minutes when demand was heavy. Two 40 horsepower electric motors beneath the suspended car or ‘gondola’ pulled cables which moved it from side to side while hanging from tracks mounted on the fixed truss overhead. In the event of a power failure, the motorman could hand-power the gondola across the canal." — unknown author. Call number: CHS-5034 Photographer: Pierce, C.C.

Save Money On Fuel And Van Insurance

Save Money On Fuel And Van Insurance

by photo Save Money On Fuel And Van Insurance Unless you’ve been living under a rock for the last few weeks, you will know that money is about to get tighter. Now that the spending cuts have been announced, people up and down the country are trying to work out how they can save money and this is particularly the case for businesses. If you run a business that relies on a fleet of vans, then you will know all about those costs that just seem to creep up on you. No sooner have you renewed your tax disc than you’re being hit by a massive bill for your van insurance. But there are ways in which you can save money. Be a little more careful and start shopping around for cheap van insurance and you will soon start to see a difference to the company’s bank account. But if you’re still in need of some money saving tactics, then another thing that you could perhaps look at saving money on is petrol. As petrol prices continue to soar, it’s important that you pass some driving techniques onto your drivers that can help them be more efficient with their fuel. The first tip to pass on to your drivers is to use the right gear. They should move up the gears fairly quickly to avoid wasting any fuel. Something else that can save fuel is limiting the time that you use air conditioning. Using your air conditioning can really increase the fuel usage so it’s best to keep air conditioning to a minimum. Checking the pressure of your tyres...
Indiana And Its Long Term Care Insurance Partnership

Indiana And Its Long Term Care Insurance Partnership

by luke1946 Indiana And Its Long Term Care Insurance Partnership The demand for long-term care continues to grow in Indiana, and therefore the cost of those benefits increase as well. In effect, residents are becoming very much concerned with these booming health care costs. A survey conducted by AARP in 2007 revealed that members aged 50-64 and non-members age 30-49 reside in South Central Indiana and 82% of these respondents believe that the state of Indiana should give priority to affordable long term care choices for its residents. According to a study on the median costs of long-term care in the State of Indiana conducted by Genworth Financial, a leading insurance company; though there are a number of choices and services available in the state, the costs vary as well which are very dependent on where the person lives. In Indiana, most residents opt turning to Medicaid to help pay for the costs of long term care. Individuals who are found eligible are aided by the Indiana Medicaid, a medical assistance program funded by the federal and state government. But, when it comes to determining eligibility, in case of a person who is single, his or her assets must not exceed $ 1,500. For married couples, assets must not exceed $ 2,250 to qualify for the program. For Indiana to push further with its objective of helping and reaching out more to its residents particularly with long term care costs, the Indiana Long Term Care Insurance Program or ILTCP was developed. ILTCP is a collaborative program between the State of Indiana through the Medicaid program and private insurance. It...
Radio Wave Propagation Models Used in RF Coverage Analysis

Radio Wave Propagation Models Used in RF Coverage Analysis

by Fæ Radio Wave Propagation Models Used in RF Coverage Analysis Radio wave propagation can be categorized as LOS (Line Of Sight) and non-LOS modes. LOS is direct point-to-point propagation with no obstructions in between. Non-LOS is indirect propagation in the absence of LOS path which consists of diffraction, reflection and scattering. In the HF band (3 – 30 MHz), propagation is primarily using sky wave for long distance communications. VHF and UHF (30 MHz – 3 GHz) waves travel by LOS and ground bounce propagation. The SHF (3 to 30 GHz) wave uses strictly LOS propagation. The goal of propagation modeling is to determine the probability of satisfactory performance of a wireless system that depends on radio wave propagation. For RF systems planning, the modeling of propagation is for the purpose of RF coverage analysis. This analysis uses the propagation model and terrain data to predict the RF coverage area of a transmitter, the received signal strength at the end of a wireless link, the path loss from the transmitter to a distance receiver, the antenna tilt angle of the transmitter, the minimum antenna height to establish Line of Sight communication path and channel impairment such as delay spread due to multi-path fading. Propagation models for different applications, environments and terrains had been developed by the US government, private organizations and standard body such as International Telecommunications Union (ITU). These models are based on large amount of empirical data collected for the purpose of characterizing propagation for that application. Since propagation models are created using statistical methods, no single model will exactly fit any particular application. It is...
Photography Studio Guide

Photography Studio Guide

by ell brown Photography Studio Guide There are various factors which could help an individual in establishing such heights of photographic excellence. While some of these factors are given their due relevance like the photographers camera to mention one, there are some others which stay in the background of the photographers list of priority but play an extremely vital role in the clicking of high quality pictures. One such integral part, in the process of photography, is a photography studio. THE RELEVANCE OF A PHOTOGRAPHY STUDIO Whether you are a small time photographer or a professional company into the business of clicking memories, it is always important to rationalize the cost that you are incurring. However, one will not want to compromise on the picture either. That is where the concept of studio photography, helps photographers to accomplish both feats at once. A photography studio can provide an illusion of the real presence of various sought after destinations of the world right within the four walls of the studio. The illusion is created by effective 2D or 3D photographs, in front of which the model is required to pose. Its completeness has been proved over times through various snaps which have been clicked through the cameras of some established and high acclaimed camera men. Not only are studios restricting themselves to location photography, also known as location studios, they also provide blank solid coloured backgrounds for the photographers to use for photographs. Such clicks, with solid coloured backgrounds, are used for different purposes all over the world. PHOTOGRAPHY STUDIO HIRE The next question that arises is the ways in...
