Unfortunately, when it comes to safety we have no other choices.
In the electrical industry, fuses are destroyed in order to
protect lives or property.
Whenever there is a big fault in the power lines, possibly caused
by short-circuiting, fuses are very helpful to stop the flow of
Unlike circuit breakers, fuses have no mechanical moving parts
that can fail to operate. A fuse is just an electrical link in
the circuit that can melt very quickly whenever a certain
temperature is reached.
Fuses have 4 things to do in a circuit:
1. They must sense faults
2. They must open quickly when a short-circuit occurs
3. They must also sense the normal overloaded conditions, but
must open if the overload becomes excessive or prolonged.
4. They must not change or alter the characteristic of the current
during normal operation.
Early types of fuses use lead wires, selected based on their
diameters, connected to terminals. These types have some
disadvantages. Whenever a fuse blows, the molten metal spatters
over the equipment and could cause injury to people or cause fires,
especially when the arc was not confined.
Later, cartridge fuses replaced the old lead wire fuses. These
consist of non-conducting cylinders which contain soft metal fuse
strips. The strips are connected to the ends of the cylinders by
metal caps or ferrules. The entire cartridge fuse is mounted onto a
matching fuse block.
Even these cartridge fuses have 2 types – those with renewable fuse
links and those one-time non-renewable types. The only advantage of
the renewable type – they are more economical because the cartridge
can be reused. However, more precautions are needed with regards to
the cleanliness of the contacts, the securing of the cap bolts, and
the choice of the current rating of the link.
Whenever a fuse blows, it means there is already a big fault in the
circuit. Electricians must be especially careful during this time
and take the necessary precautions. The fuses blow up for safety.
Don’t cause another blow up!
Pharmaceutical industry jobs are said to be one of the sought after jobs as these opportunities are said to be recession-proof jobs and there are a lot of benefits that are attractive for those who are looking for jobs that allow flexibility especially when it comes to how much you can earn.
In fact, there are indeed a good number of benefits and privileges in getting into the pharmaceutical industry jobs. You can may be provided with a vehicle from the company and great commissions especially if you get to comply your quota or you have exceeded it. Of course, you can also have a command on the commission that you want to earn. Being a pharmaceutical sales representative, you can actually deal as much products as you would want so that you will also get higher commissions.
If you are interested in landing in one of the pharmaceutical industry jobs, you might find the following tips useful to be able to get that job you’ve always wanted and enjoy the benefits as well.
- Know the pharmaceutical sales industry. If you want a job in the industry, you have to learn everything about the industry and know what are the challenges that you need to tackle. Of course, along with the great benefits of the job are the tough challenges that you have to tackle as well. Keep in mind that pharmaceutical sales representatives often have to meet sales quotas and they may need to travel to see doctors, pharmacists and clients from time to time, which is most probably the reason why most pharma sales agents are issued company cars for their use.
- Assess your skills that can make you succeed in pharmaceutical industry jobs. If you want to break into the pharmaceutical industry, you have to at least assess yourself if you have the skills and if you have what it takes to be a successful sales representative.

People find themselves online trying their hand at a home based business only to get very discouraged because they are not having any success. The main problem is that no one really pointed out what all it takes to have success online. This article is going to tell you how not to fail in the home based business industry.
Step #1: Dive head first into personal development before you even step foot into the home based business industry. Why you might ask? Because this is definitely going to be a huge challenge for you and one where you will face every obstacle there is. You will get discouraged, upset, mad, frustrated and very ticked off. If you don’t know how to handle those feelings and move forward, you will become another statistic and join the 98% that have quit. You have to learn how to handle what is in store for you..
Step #2: Do your research before joining any business opportunity. Do not join the first thing that looks appealing. Call the person whose site you landed on and ask them any questions you may have. People need to be informed about what they need to do in order to have success. Feel comfortable with the person you are thinking about joining under. If there is not a connection, move on.
Step #3: You must be passionate about whatever you are promoting. If you are a health fanatic, join a health related business. If you love to travel, join a travel opportunity. If you love dogs, become part of an opportunity that promotes dog products. If you are building your own business you will have much more success if you are really passionate about what you are involved in.
Step #4: You HAVE to learn how to market. Although most opportunities will have some type of training, they will not teach you how to market you. You will need to invest in your education and join some type of generic training community that will teach you how to present you to the online industry, how to talk to potential prospects without chasing them away, how to create your own website, what to write in your autoresponder series, how to advertise on PPC, how to write articles that will pull, why video marketing is a must, etc. There is SO much to learning what it takes and it is imperative that you learn how.
Step #5: Depending on what opportunity you join, it WILL take you a few years to start making the kind of income you desire. There are no overnight successes in the online industry no matter what you have heard. Advertising that is filled with hype sells yet the people who get pulled into those opportunities become extremely disappointed almost immediately. This is a business you are building and it will take time.
I do hope these steps on how not to fail in the home based business industry were helpful. I hate to see people be misled into believing that this is easy and a no brainer. It takes time, desire, dedication, passion and a will to succeed to make it to the top. Anyone can do this if they truly have the desire to succeed.

The farm manager’s duties vary widely, but he or she is usually employed directly by the farm owner and works in conjunction with the farm operator. On a large farm, the manager might be responsible for one area of operations, such as feeding the animals. On a smaller farm, the manager’s tasks range from planning the farm’s yield to assisting in the planting and harvesting activities.
Animal scientists conduct research to develop methods of feeding, housing, and breeding farm livestock. For example, they might develop beef cattle that yield more lean meat, cows that give more milk, or sheep that grow finer wool. They work in laboratories, research stations, or on farms.
Veterinarians work on farms, in labs, and at any institutions in which animals are kept or raised. One must earn the doctor of veterinary medicine degree in order to become a veterinarian.
Agri-business technicians organise, operate and manage farms or agricultural businesses.

Educators are teachers of agriculture that work in high school departments of agriculture education, agricultural colleges, and with the agricultural extension service. Agriculture is such a diversified industry, the opportunities for teaching are great. Many universities, colleges, technical schools, and high schools need teachers of agricultural subjects.
Agricultural consultants, sometimes called agricultural extension workers live and work primarily in farming communities to bring new ideas and technology in agriculture to farmers and farm families.
Landscapers and ground managers work in a field related to the agricultural industry that provides opportunities for employment in a variety of areas which are not on farms. Landscapers and ground managers plan and design gardens, parks, and lawns and supervise the care of trees, plants, and shrubs that are part of these areas. Employment opportunities exist in private homes, schools, office parks, and shopping malls.
Horticulturists and horticultural technicians develop new and improve varieties of bushes, shrubs, trees, and landscape products, as well as fruits and vegetables. They act as consultants to farms on their vegetable crops, or they may direct public botanical gardens. They also often work as landscape contractors serving homeowners or city or state park commissions.
