Concord – creating innovations and new technologies in museum lighting

From tablet-based apps that control lighting systems to the LED revolution and its own Concord Beacon Muse, David Neale, Marketing Manager at Concord by Sylvania UK answers Advisor’s questions on the innovations in lighting technology and their recent work at Leeds Art Gallery What have been some of the major innovations in lighting over the past five years and how have they aided museums? Firstly, I think it’s important to look at how LED technology revolutionised the lighting world and continues to do so. The initial benefits of LED compared to Halogen for example were around energy efficiency, reducing power consumption from 50w to 13w for the same light output. However, the benefits of LED have now extended to controlling colour temperature (from a warm effect to a cool effect) to adjust the atmosphere of an object without changing the fitting. Additionally some standard light sources require filters for objects which are sensitive to light, LED technology does not create the same levels of IR & UV light and is therefore ideal for sensitive environments such as galleries and museums. There’s also added benefits of new technology and that’s the ability to introduce smart,...

Igloo cooler with built-in beer tap fits 85 White Claw cans

Labor Day is a holiday best celebrated with brews and buddies, and this year Igloo is revolutionizing the cooler game to make hosting a breeze. Igloo’s Kegmate Jockey Box Cooler— which comes complete with its own built-in beer tap — allows tailgaters and barbecuers to keep their kegs cool without the hassle of dunking them in a massive ice bucket. The state-of-the-art cooler is made of stainless steel and boasts a 54-quart capacity — equivalent to a whopping 85 12-ounce cans of White Claw or most other brands of hard seltzer or beer. And if you prefer bottled beverages, the cooler also comes with a sturdy steel bottle opener fastened to the front. The chrome faucet with a black faucet knob is connected to a 120-inch coil, making for a seamless replacement for tapping a keg outright. All you need to do is connect a CO2 tank, a regulator, and a standard keg to the back of the cooler before filling the inside with ice and serving up ice cold tap beer of your favorite variety. And if you’re feeling particularly creative, you can swap out the tap handle for whatever design best fits the vibe of your party. The Kegmate is 24.4 inches long, 15.9 inches wide, and 16.5 inche...

Qatar’s agriculture push risks further groundwater depletion

Qatar’s leading news outlets recently reported that local agricultural production has jumped by 400% since a political and economic blockade was imposed on the emirate by its Arab neighbors in 2017. And within a few years, 40% to 50% of fresh products could be produced locally, Faleh bin Nasser Al Thani, assistant undersecretary for agriculture and fisheries at the Ministry of Municipality and Environment, told Al-Monitor. It is widely acknowledged that the country’s staggering efforts to strengthen its farming industry is one of the political responses to the blockade. Thani said the blockade caused Qatar to realize its vulnerability when it comes to the food supply. However, the Gulf state faces major obstacles in this regard. For example, it was recently ranked as the most water-stressed country in the world. It is also one of the few countries with no permanent rivers as rainfall is extremely unpredictable and highly erratic. Each year, 92% of the 250 million cubic meters (75,000 acre-feet) of groundwater withdrawn from the country’s aquifers is given free of charge to farmers. The usage of this water could be far more efficient and effective. Governmental...
