Imagine this: it is a very hot day in July, you are watching T.V, your movements are as if you were a robot. Your fingers of your right hand are looking for a channel that gets your attention, and you found it. You have a comfortable posture in the couch, the windows open and fresh air coming through it. The T.V continues with the program until is commercial time. The commercial starts normal, then it shows a cool drink and suddenly you are thirsty. You get up and head to the refrigerator, you open it, and you got a really cold Coca-Cola. This past 200 years we have seen the big effect that ice had in our lives. It everything started as a theory, and idea, of Dr. Cullen, which the one consisted on the cooling effects of liquids evaporating in a vacuum. Then a lot more people started experimenting with this “cooling” theory. Even if he invented, he didn’t created, he just came up with the idea. Here I am going to tell you how this four scientists had revolutionized the refrigerator to how we use it today. But first let me tell you how the people did to storage their foods before the refrigerator. Do you remember the first example? Well you would said, that’s really easy, nothing to worry about. But imagine if you didn’t have the refrigerator. How would you have fresh food? How would you storage it? How would you be able to get a really cold cup of ice cream? Well we would suffer if the refrigerator wouldn’t exist. We are so dependent on the electricity and new technology that if something happened we would be lost. If we go back 250, or at least 300, we would notice that the people handled this situations whit the recourses that they could get. The people of those days used snow from the mountains and transported to their houses to later contain it in insulated material. They sometimes stored like the milk and butter in cellars, or underwater in the near lakes. Or to cool down their drinks the Egyptians placed their liquid in container open and in the ceiling to let the night air cool it. In 1805, Oliver Evans came up with an idea to create colder temperatures by the evaporation of liquids in a vacuum. He did this but never created a model to prove it. Later on in 1834 Jacob Perkins did create the first Ether Ice Machine, with the ether vapour compression cycle. According to “Perkins' patent, liquid ether was contained in an "evaporator vessel" where it was vaporized under a partial vacuum maintained by the suction of a crude hand-operated compressor. The evaporator vessel was submerged in a liquid from which the heat required to vaporize the ether was extracted, thereby cooling the liquid. The compressed ether vapor from the compressor discharge was then condensed back into liquid ether by flowing through piping coils submerged in water. The liquid ether then returned through a pressure reduction valve into the partial vacuum of the evaporator vessel. Clearly, Perkins' system included the four principal features uses by modern vapor-compression refrigeration systems, namely an evaporator, a compressor, a condenser and an expansion valve. Unfortunately, Perkins had no success in commercializing his system.”…...

Ice Movement

...Ice movement Cold based glaciers (POLAR) occur in the high Latitudes where the temperature of the snow fall is far below zero degrees and the ice of the glacier remains at below zero throughout the year. These glaciers therefore stay frozen to the bedrock all year and there fore there is little ice movement and therefore little erosion. Greenland and the Antarctic have cold based glaciers. Warm based glaciers or temperate glaciers have water present throughout the ice mass and this water acts as a lubricant. This may be for a period of the year or all year, and allows for much greater rates of movement and thus more erosion. These glaciers are often found in mountain glaciers at lower latitudes but higher altitudes than polar glaciers. Cold based glaciers move mainly by internal deformation. These glaciers are frozen to the bed and therefore only move 1-2cm a day. The ice crystals within the glacier orientate themselves in the direction of ice movement. This allows ice crystals to slide past one another. Where the ice movement is fast enough crevasses may develop. Temperate glaciers move mainly through BASAL SLIPPAGE. If the glacier moves, this can raise the temperature of the base ice through pressure and friction. The basal ice can then melt, and this water helps to allow the ice to slip more easily over its bed. This could move at 2-3m per day and pick up material with which it can use to erode its bed. This is related to regelation, which is the phenomenon of......

Ice Cream

...evaluated the ice cream industry from a Porter’s Five Forces perspective to determine the attractiveness of the market. Next, we observed Amy’s Ice Creams’ strategy through interviews and class concepts to see how Amy’s competes. Then, we assessed the strengths and weaknesses of the company’s strategy to offer recommendations for Amy’s Ice Creams going forward. Production and Sales The biggest activities in the ice cream industry consist of production and sales. In 2011, U.S. manufacturers produced 1.53 billion gallons of ice cream, a 6.5 percent increase from 2009. In addition, U.S. ice cream sellers sold 25.4 billion servings of ice cream and other frozen desserts. This represents a 2.4 percent increase from the previous year, a slight increase after two year of stagnant sales (New Hope 360). There are two channels for ice cream sales. The first channel is food service where customers visit an ice cream parlor and pay a premium for the product. The second channel is retail where customers purchase their favorite brand of ice cream from a retail chain like Wal-Mart.  Food services constitute a larger portion of the two channels accounting for 57 percent of overall ice cream sales (New Hope 360).   Products    The products in the ice cream industry include premium ice creams and novelties.  Premium ice creams include sorbet, sherbet, and fruity flavored ice products packaged by the pint or quart. Novelties are separately packaged ice cream products like ice cream......

Mobile Ice Cream Vending Machine

...Electronic machine used to disperse a product to a consumer after a certain amount of money has been put into the machine. Vending machines are commonly used to disperse beverages and snack items, but in recent years companies have introduced vending machines that disperse other items, even including electronic items such as digital cameras or iPods. Often the focus of profitable business ventures, ice cream vending machines can be found in supermarkets and many commercial venues such as shopping malls and train stations. There are several different kinds which can be fitted with various functional and decorative components. Some store only ice cream, but others sometimes contain other frozen foods as well. Other machines are capable of making ice cream from ingredients which are stored separately, depending on desired flavour, and based on recipes contained in computer memory. Many ice cream vending machines include pre-packaged ice cream snacks. These typically have a temperature control system in addition to mechanisms that handle dollar bills and coins. Coin changers are usually integrated as well, so a customer can receive change once he or she purchases a product. There are also ice cream vending machines that can store the ingredients to various recipes separately. These sometimes have a robotic arm that can accurately pick from the ingredients inside the machine; some robotics include suction devices to hold items. More sophisticated ice cream vending......

As Russia’s largest domestic ice cream producer, they had held onto their market leadership for many years. However, increasing competition from foreign companies, along with the emergence of regional producers of ice cream led to Ice-Fili’s market share erosion in the recent years. Porter’s five forces model was the primary method to analyze Ice-Fili’s industry and its competitiveness in the industry. Segmentation analysis was used for further study of the ice cream industry in Russia. The analysis was carried on key variables like distribution channel, buying behavior, geographic locations, and product characteristics. Based on this model, various alternatives were considered. From these alternatives, it was possible to form a recommendation: Ice-Fili will need to focus on the strengthening of its distribution channel through various efforts including marketing and raising of capital while focusing on its long history and brand recognition. Above all, availability of its product to the consumers is the key to Ice-Fili’s success. Porters Five......

Machines

...Should machines be used to do good and services instead humans? I believe they should not for many reasons. Machines can not be smart unless a human is controling it. So it would not matter if its an intelligent machine or not a human is still controlling it to do everything. When using a machine it could easily malfunction and it could be hard to fix the problem or it will just take a while to fix it. If a human is taking over instead of the machine there may be fewer problems. Machines have so many problems that it would not be worth having. Also, the more machines you have the less jobs there are for people because everyone thinks it would be better to have machines instead of people. When less people are out of work that means less money for those people and sometimes they will lose their homes or cars because they can not afford anything. Sometimes working with machines can be very stressful because they may not work at times or they could be running extremely slow and won’t get anything done. Machines are not smart at all, only when people are controlling them they are but not all the time. It may seem smart but its really not. In conclusion, I think machines should not be used to take over a human job because machines can not think only humans can think and make right or wrong decisions. Machines do not have brains, their not wired to think so why have them do stuff that we can do ourselves....

Fire and Ice

...Brett Hall Professor Armstrong English 113 M 17 November 2011 Fire and Ice Frost loaded an unbelievable amount of meaning into hos poem fire and ice. He brings up the highly debated topic of how the world is going to end. Two ways that he thinks the world will end is through fire and ice. Both fire and ice have deeper metaphorical meanings than just on the literal meaning of the poem. Fire can be used in the literal meaning of the word. In the second line of the poem Frost talks about how the world could end in fire. This topic is an extremely well researched thought and has a very real possibility of that happening. One way that this could happen is if another world war breaks out, a war that would be a war unlike any other that has ever been waged. We have technology now that is nothing compared to the types that we had in the first two world wars, now we have the power to destroy the world many times over. Fire could be a nuclear blast that would purge the land in a fiery explosion, covering what Frost is talking about in his poem about the world ending in fire. Also some scientists predict the end of the world would come from sun ether from a solar flare or from it expanding and engulfing the earth. This enlarging of the sun would it the description of the fiery destruction of the earth. Fire can also be passionate emotions like rage. The bible tells us to stay away from anger in psalms it says “Refrain from anger and turn from wrath; do not fret-it leads only...

Ice Plant

...INTRODUCTION Ice manufacturing has started in early this century. Prior to these factories ice was imported from the mountains, at a very high financial cost, and did not last too long due to temperature. But these new factories started producing three to four tons of ice per day. This was enough to support the population more so than ever before. Ice was preserved over the warm summer months by packing the ice in saw dust for insulation. Instantly the ice business became big business. Many entrepreneurs started investing money in formulating mechanical refrigeration at an economical cost. Interest in ice making equipment was at full force in the early twentieth century. Uncertainty of supplies, great fluctuations in price and sanitation standards made natural ice obsolete to the artificial product. Ice making equipment and refrigeration processes spread throughout the country. Ice making equipment became crucial for long distance shipments of perishables. Ice preservation in the home, though, was still not up to par at this point, but that only benefited the manufacturers. Ice was not a cheap product either. In fact it cost more than many meats and dairy products. Ice manufacturing caused a shift in many familial practices. Household foods could be preserved for longer periods of time, Prior to refrigerators and iceboxes basically all foods had to be consumed on the spot. Ice breeded ice cream, cold beer and many other luxuries. The regular availability of ice......
