The materials will be obtained from three pits. The composition of the materials in the different pits is as follows: Pit 1: 52% sand, 30% fine gravel, 18% course gravel pit 2: 20% sand, 50% fine gravel, 30% course gravel pit 3: 25% sand, 20% fine gravel, 55% course gravel How many cubic meters should be used from each pit in order to complete the project?(Hint: There are three unknowns, implied by the question. There are three equations, relating known quantities to sums of unknown quantities. ). Essentially — Let x be the amount of material obtained from pit 1, y be the amount of material obtained from pit 2, and z be the amount of material obtained from pit3. Then, we see that we obtain 0. 52x + 0. 20y + 0. 25z m^3 of sand, 0. 30x + 0. 50y + 0. 20z m^3 of fine gravel, and 0. 18x + 0. 30y + 0. 55z m^3 of course gravel. Equating these with the given values yields the system: 0. 52x + 0. 20y + 0. 25z = 2400. . . . . . . . . . . . (1) 0. 30x + 0. 50y + 0. 20z = 2900. . . . . . . . . . . . (2) 0. 18x + 0. 30y + 0. 55z = 2850. . . . . . . . . . . . (3) Solving (1), (2), and (3) gives x = 86125/43, y = 153325/43, and z = 111000/43. In other words, we should obtain about 2002 m^3 of material from pit 1, 3566 m^3 of material from pit 2, and 2581 m^3 of material from pit 3. I hope this helps.
Over the space of a year, central London conference centre One Great George Street has more than doubled their web traffic from re-designing their website to make it more user friendly and DDA compliant. To gain better search engine positioning and hence increase traffic further they have also embarked on an SEO project.
Who are One Great George Street?One Great George Street is an elegant and historic central London conference venue. Situated in the heart of Westminster the venue has 19 rooms suitable for a plethora of events, from conferences to meetings; training sessions to product launches, awards dinners to private fine dining and the venue is also available for exclusive use for weekend wedding receptions. With modern and traditional rooms and the capacity for 6-400 guests, there's a room for every occasion.
Although a well known and established conference venue already, in 2004 it was felt that the corporate image needed to be updated to better reflect the prestigious nature of the business. So, along with a new logo and new brochures an access-friendly website was brought online in Feb 2005.
Website creationDesigned and created with the help of marketing agency WDPA (now SOUK Response) and built by E-Business (part of Thomas Telford Ltd), the new site adopted the fresh new streamlined look that can be seen on all other literature and material. As well as updating the site aesthetically, the aim was also to make it more in line with the new DDA standards. The venue is keen to offer a service for all, so that people of all abilities have easy access to the site and the facilities in the building.
Improvements and additions included an option for changing text size for sight-impaired users and a page detailing accessibility features in the building. A text version is also currently being developed to improve the accessibility. With a clear navigation system, it was made easier to work through from searching for a suitable room, to seeing virtual tours and making a booking. As wedding receptions are an increasingly valuable source of business to One Great George Street, two distinct sections were created one for weddings and one for corporate visitors. These markets have very different requirements so it is important to separate them to make the site more relevant for the visitor.
Search Engine Optimisation opportunitiesOn the SEO front, basic foundations were laid down by E-business in late 2005 with the aim of testing the waters whilst fully researching the SEO options. During the last 6 months since adding keywords, alt tags, meta tags etc, the positioning on the key search engines has increased slightly, but by working with an experienced SEO agency the aim is to get even higher visibility. Commercetuned (www. Commercetuned. Co. Uk) are working on an ongoing project which includes adding new website coding, link building and providing recommendations on keyword positioning on the customer interface.
With search engine marketing and optimisation being such hot topics, the One Great George Street marketing strategy needs to keep up with and top of these trends and are therefore fully embracing any changes. The marketing plan has been adapted over the last two years to incorporate this more and more with all campaigns now including e-shots and web advertising as a core element and all communications are directing the client to the website.
Visitor numbersWith visitor numbers increasing so significantly, the re-designed website has been a great success. Over the last 3 months a key campaign was undertaken and a quarterly e-newsletter was distributed and the success of these can clearly be seen with visitor numbers at nearly triple what they were before the re-design. From the visitor statistics what is also very encouraging is the increase in 'returning' visitors. This again has doubled over the last 6 months to 28% of total visitors.
This increase in traffic is great news for the venue and is far more than expected, but there is still more that can be done to improve the awareness of this conference centre, which is why Commercetuned are now on board working on an all encompassing SEO/SEM project.

Men brag about building roads, houses, buildings – which is great for us and sucks for you. However women build, carry, and produce human beings. I think humans are a little more impressive than a big slab of concrete that any cave man can build if given the right instructions (ahem – by women). I think I found an answer. How many human beings can a woman, requote, "build carry and produce" without some enthusiastic or disinterested (sperm donor) help on the part of a male human being??? The answer is "0" (nada; zilch). In fact in about a 3 day period, most normal male human beings of reproductive age can generate 3 to 5 million possible human beings [individual sperm cells with half of the human chromosomes (23) required to build an entire human being], whereas every human female is born with and retains only enough "half human beings" (23 chromosomes) to ovulate/emit once per mo during her reproductive life time — 300 – 400 possible half human beings as immature eggs in her ovaries. So since humans are more impressive than roads, the human beings who can produce the greatest numbers of half human beings are arguably more impressive than those who can produce much lesser numbers of human beings. And one man could theoretically impregnate millions of women, whereas one woman can only actually bear/produce something less than dozens of children. The comment about right (engineering) instructions (ahem – by women) is noted even though women engineers/architects are a fairly modern phenomenon. The "instructions" part is correct, but engineering instructions is a dubious qualification. The really "cool" part is when there is a happy and enthusiastic cooperation in women and men making, building, protecting/nurturing and enjoying the company of their biological constructions. Kevin

I am an Asian interested to study in Canada in Master of civil engineering especially Construction Management or Highway engineering or Transportation planning/ management. I was so happy to find this — If you're applying for a Master's program, you should get financial support as part of your acceptance. Apply to more than one school and pick from them. Financial support should include – in country tuition waiver, teaching assistance ship or research assistanceship. If they don't at least offer you an in country / resident tuition rate, go somewhere else. As an alternate suggestion – try Cooper Union, in New York State. They're free if you're admitted.
Yea I know that they are completely different professions . I know for a fact that a mechanical engineer can work in the construction industry. For me, I want to be both. Not at the same time because that would not be possible obviously, but both of these careers are great . Making machines and managing big complex projects. I am just wondering if its possible for a mechanical engineer to be a construction project manager. From what I can tell… No, because construction is not in the field of expertise of a mechanical engineer. Maybe he can be resident engineer, or lets say assistant project engineer.

I own my home in Shamokin Dam, PA and I am trying to see if any local building contractor would be willing to show me and help me put up a addition to my home ? I can only afford to do the actual cost of the materials. I am willing to work hard and to learn but I cannot afford to pay the going $63 – $86 per sq. Ft rate contractors want for labor. Any suggestions. Please e-mail me at poohandhunnypot@verizon. Net Many thanks. What I found out was – You may find a contractor willing to consult with you at an hourly rate. This may fit in their schedule between jobs or in an afternoon when they finished another job early. Or you may want to hire them for part of the work. If you are not in a hurry, I suggest you volunteer with Habitat for Humanity. You'll learn all the necessary building skills and be helping deserving families as well. There is an affiliate in nearby Selinsgrove, as well as Northumberland, Millersburg, Bloomsburg, and McAlisterville.
For example, what about spending significant federal funds on infrastructure repair projects, the construction of better schools & public buildings, etc. , and hiring unemployed men and women — and some present day welfare recipients — to do most of the work? Or what about the federal government creating and funding a program to clean up visitor facilities in national parks, increase the energy efficiency of government buildings, and do other neglected environmental tasks — maybe even oil spill cleanup — and hiring the unemployed and idle to do the work? Wouldn't that kind of federal program be psychologically healthier for the poor than simply getting checks for doing nothing? And wouldn't the nation get more bang for its bucks that way. Do you know what I found? No, you have the wrong idea here. It is bad enough illuminati want world domination and what you are suggesting is nothing short of that. The reason some of us sit around and do nothing is because we do not receive enough $$$ to do anything but nothing. We are living from one day to the next. Yeah, yeah, I hear you say get off my arse and get a job. Not all of us are bludgers – I have previously had three workplace back injuries – both companies refused to accept liability – so I had no where to turn but to government assistance. It was the government that put me into the second workplace where I received two workplace back injuries. There was no health and safety guidelines in the warehouse, no scales to tell us how heavy the boxes were – don't do the work, you get sacked – then you wait up to 8weeks to get any benefits from the government – oh and by the way the $$$ they pay us with, is electronically transferred – which means – the money has come from non-existence – they pulled it from nowhere – changed a few figures on a computer – and had the audacity to exchange that for what they call money and we are expected to be grateful. I am so grateful that the government said, go do the job because if you don't we won't give you any more $$$. So I stay at a job I absolutely hate – I work in the health and caring sectors. So yeah I really appreciated being shoved into a dirty warehouse job, that did nothing but rip the customer off at every turn. I don't see the government suffering constant back pain because of it. Two years later, at 47, I still can't get a job. Myself, my parents, my grandparents, my great-grandparents and theirs before them, all paid taxes – where is our dues? Psychologically healthier for the government – you sound like you are dictating – do as I say not as I do attitude – you should get a job in politics – you'd make a great pollie as you only see the side you wish to see. Discrimination is rank in the workplace, age, health, race, younger, prettier, sexier, dumber (for if you ask questions you are considered a trouble maker, that leads to being fired). I remember who I am, and who I am not, and I am not a SLAVE.
