Over the years, the city experienced several wars, and it was even occupied by the French for some time. After the Napoleon’s occupation in the beginning of the 19th century and the intense battle with troops from England and Portugal, the city has been completely destroyed and turned to ashes.

Those who survived where determined to rebuild the city, after which better times were ahead of San Sebastian city. The second half of the 19th century marked the beginning of the more prosperous times for the city and its inhabitants. Queen Isabel II visited the city and encouraged its development. In 1863 San Sebastian was named the capital of the Gipuzkoa province. The old fortress walls were demolished and the main activity of the locals became commerce. As the city developed, it turned to a popular tourist destination.

Beautiful designs are very important nowadays, as they can attract attention and focus one’s mind to an object in question. The application of design is so vast that there is a constant need for designers in various different areas, starting from web design to designing of product packages or advertising messages.

What brought this idea of design thinking is the need to be noticed. As we live in consumer society, we are constantly overwhelmed with all sorts of advertisements, messages, information, etc. It is estimated that a person is exposed to over five thousands ads a day. Not only are people unable to fully grasp the message of each ad, but they are most likely to forget the ad quite soon.

In order to prevent this, companies struggle to find new ways of attracting people with visual elements. Since it is familiar that people are able to comprehend the message on an image much quicker, than if the same message was written, the modern world simply demands effective images and designs to be used in different areas of our lives.

Starting from the need to design a package for all sorts of products, such as cookies, make up or book cover, companies are working hard on finding new designs and creating a unique set of designs which could make a company be recognized.

When it comes to web design, this skill is something that almost every company needs if it wants to be successful at reaching consumers online. Airline companies, online stores, children playrooms, bookstores, etc. Everyone wants to be found online as consumers are oriented at online search, rather than walking and looking at the store windows. Well-designed websites, blogs, social media accounts, etc. are there to attract the attention of the online visitors with original, breath-taking designs.

A Conference in Madrid

Posted by loverblog on March 07, 2014

I have been working as a teacher for over fifteen years now, and I am very interested in new, innovative ways of learning and teaching. New technologies and different ways of communication and socialization impose some new challenges in both teaching and learning. This is way I am interested in learning about new methods that are applicable in the modern classroom, hoping those would produce best results.

Over the past few years, there have been lots of conferences and conventions about language teaching and learning, and I have tried to attend as many as I could. Not only have I learned about the latest improvements, suggestions and teaching methods, but I have also met teachers from different cities and different countries that face the same challenges as I do.

This kind of experience helped me a lot when it comes to teaching and working with students. It helped me understand the modern way of communication that might seem intimidating to the older generations, but is something almost innate to the younger generation. Having this in mind, I believe that the teaching process has to be adapted to fit the modern reality and to exploit the technology that is available.

Therefore, when I find out that Madrid will host the International Conference of Linguistics, Language Teaching and Learning, I have decided to apply. The conference will be held in a conference center at the end of this month. I do not believe that a two-day event would be enough to focus on all of the topics that should be dealt with, but it will certainly be a great opportunity to be a part of such an important event.

The goal of these kinds of conferences is to bring academic scientists, researches, linguists and educators to present and discuss the recent innovations and trends, as well as to talk about challenges we all encounter in this work. Experts in this field will speak about practical solutions that should help us overcome the challenges and use the situations in order to teach more effectively.

Besides the lectures, there will be presentations of researches conducted by respectable linguists and teachers. Their aim was to analyze the influence of the Internet and social media on teaching and learning. The international scientists and researchers have invested time into their studies, and they are eager to present their latest findings. Certain segments will certainly be devoted to general topics about the languages and how current situation affects the development of different languages. The influence of English is something that will definitely be discusses, as it has a great impact on all aspects of our lives.

I am really looking forward to this conference as it will enable me to take different opinions into consideration. This will also be a chance to learn about different experiences which ought to help me in my own work as I am constantly working on improving and advancing in professional sense. In addition, I will be able to meet some colleges from abroad.

MBR Technology

MBR is short for membrane bioreactor. It refers to the process that combines microfiltration or ultrafiltration using membranes in the bioreactors. This process is widely used for wastewater treatment.

Bioreactors are devices or systems that are used for conduction of chemical processes which involve the usage or various substances. Organisms within the bioreactor are exposed to certain chemical process using the biochemically active substances. The substances react and create a chemical reaction that is supposed to affect the organism and create the desired outcome.

The chemical reactions inside the bioreactors are controlled by the adequate usage of certain chemicals that are inserted in the bioreactor. It is important that the balance of chemicals is planned in order to create the appropriate chemical reaction.

Anaerobic MBR is the process used for treatment within the bioreactor. Membrane technology enables advanced treatment of chemicals in order to cause the desired chemical reaction inside the bioreactor. The final goal is to treat substances in order to create solvents of certain chemical quality.

The usage of anaerobic MBR is an economical process as it enables membranes to be reused in the several processes. In this case, it is possible to save energy and reduce costs as a membrane will be efficient in several repeated cycles.

One of the main usage of anaerobic membranes is in the treatment of industrial wastewaters. Having in mind that the water supplies are getting scarce, it is evident that new solutions for preservation of existing water have to be introduced. Therefore, membranes offer a cost-effective solution that enables the energy recovery. The water can be used in several instances as the membranes inside the bioreactor will disinfect the water that has already been used in the process of production.

Membranes can be installed in the main vessel of the bioreactor or in the separate tank. Membranes that are installed inside the bioreactor are more isolated and more difficult to maintain, as the bioreactor has to be disassembled in order to access the membrane. However, this process of filtration is more effective if there is a constant fluid of the chemical, and especially if less surcharge is expected during the process of filtration. If the membranes are installed in a separate tank, they are not as isolated and they can be approached more easily. This type of installation is recommended when the expected biomass that is filtered in this process is significant. This enables the easier maintenance of membrane system.

Membrane fouling can have negative effect on the filtration process, as it may cause unplanned chemical reaction that would harm the components and the final product. This is why the process of efficient removal of the fouling layer from the membrane surface is extremely important for the successful process of water filtration. MBR technology is developing new ways to reduce the undesired effect that can affect the composition of the chemicals involved in the process. This would allow wide-spread application of this process as it would create optimal conditions for successful filtration process.
