How much does the air conditioning in your car?

You have arrived the heat, and in Spain we notice but based on well. Take a trip in mid – afternoon, or back to the car after having left it parked in the sun, you can assume little more than a faint heat that can accumulate inside the car, like a greenhouse.

Today there are very few cars not equipped with air conditioning, or any variant technologically similarly, call it what you call: manual climate control, automatic climate control, electronic climate control, dual zone climate control, Trizone, cuatrizone … Essentially we always refer a cold machine. Let’s see briefly how it works, and above all, how much you spend.

Take hot air, cool it and put it in the passenger compartment

At this point no one should be surprised if we say that the air conditioning consumes energy, or in other words, in a petrol or diesel car consumes (or gas, or whatever you use your car to get around).

Dark City

Science-fiction: ‘Dark City’ by Alex Proyas

Roger Ebert called it the best production of 1998. That’s nothing. It was a box office flop raising two hundred thousand more than their bare – bones budget of $ 27 million dollars, but that did not stop him to acquire the fast condition cult film obligatory pilgrimage for fans of science fiction.

A condition well deserved since, although this writer not qualify as the best that saw the light during his debut year -there would be to stop the tape on the Normandy landings in Spielberg or that the “note” signed by the Coen, yes that would place it among the top five, not of 1998 but of science fiction that we saw during the nineties.

If this is so – and it is, I have no doubt – is due to multiple factors that combine to build a hypnotic film, full of nuances and references which greatly enrich its content and are put there so no chance to raise a microcosm in which, if anything stands out above all is the fascinating and amazing staging of Alex Proyas.

Ways for Measuring Customer Satisfaction

Customer satisfaction is very important for any business that wants to work its way up to the top. Without a brand of loyal customers who are satisfied with your products and services, your business would never get a positive vibe around it that would entice other people to check out your products and services as well. You can market your services all you like but without a band of excited consumers who would go out of their way to promote your business on their own without any rewards, your business would never be able to attract a lot of people. Measuring customer satisfaction is also important as you would like to know if your customers are dissatisfied with your services or not. Knowledge of unhappy customers is very important as these consumers can start spreading negative word of mouth about the business if you dont do enough to end their dissatisfaction. And you wont be able to take any steps to do so if you dont know that some people are dissatisfied with your business in the first place.

The cassette tape is back … but this time the station is hipster!

Vinyl returned several years ago and now finds entire sections dedicated to them even in supermarkets. Today, it is the only format that survives the dreaded digital music, although physically still deflating and everything indicates that the final advancement of online models in music consumption will occur along this 2016.

The online stores have also expanded their physical catalog: Amazon now offer 4 million CDs and 1.3 million vinyl records (which are bought more than heard). Throughout this evolution, the last of those formats that evokes other times, the cassette is not on the shelves of the Fnac and seems to disappear at the gas pump road: where does, then his course resurface?

The geographical factor

In recent years, many artists have released their work into tape as The Oh Sees, Japandroids, The Growlers, MGMT, Deerhunter or even Nelly Furtado, who sold a collaboration tape format with Blood Orange at one of his concerts Christmas in Harlem. Although they seem more specific initiatives, it notes that increasing interest from record labels grope again in this format. One of the managers JazzyMs, a small shop in the middle of Madrids Calle de la Palma, is clear: “Sooner or later, the tape will come. I look every week how the matter proceeds to bring or import as seeing movement. We will always be willing to sell, but the key is in the marketing.”
