The Art of Paper Cutting

<p class="MsoHeader" style="margin: 0in 0in 0pt">Papercutting is an old, based artwork that dates nearly way back to the production of paper itself. In today’s multicultural global, papercutting embraces any variety of topics, designs, and pictures. it truly is an all-inclusive artwork that calls for few instruments and minimum fabrics.

Mikroprozessortechnik: Grundlagen, Architekturen, Schaltungstechnik und Betrieb von Mikroprozessoren und Mikrocontrollern

Das Buch Mikroprozessortechnik wendet sich an alle, die bei begrenzter Zeit einen leichten Einstieg in das Thema und einen Überblick über die wichtigsten Techniken suchen. So weit möglich, werden zu allen Themen zunächst die zu Grunde liegenden Ideen verständlich und plausibel gemacht; dabei wird großer Wert auf die Zusammenhänge gelegt.

5 SUMMARY With the concept of NEGA-Resources, an approach to realize high resource efficiency in product use phase is presented in this paper. The case study of water zeroemission house shows, how to implement the approach to achieve sustainable water consumption in household. g. improving the efficiency of water by grey water recycling system, creating more value from waste by black water separation system, recover energy by energy harvesting system, increasing the social awareness of resource saving by information center system.

3. e. drinking, body care, washing/shower, toilet flushing. But the required water quality and quantity is contrary to each other, for example, 33% of water is used to flush toilet, in contrast, only 2% for drinking. 30 Fig. 3: Distribution of water consumption inside household [8] Due to rising price of water supply and disposal, inhabitant should pay more money for water consumption. A data from shows form 1990 to 2005, the total price of fresh water per m3 has increased by 350% [9], meanwhile, disposal of wastewater costs about 14% more than supplied fresh water.

Battery, etc. Actually, the most percentage of resource consumption happens in production and use phases. For example, CO2 emission is usually considered as an indicator of energy consumption, the Product Environmental Reports of Apple Inc. shows that 45% and 46% of CO2 emissions of total product lifecycle are generated in production and use phases [2]. Production phase could be partly considered as the use phase of machines. Therefore, the NEGAResources are further confined as the consumptive Fig.
