  4. Use this opportunity to ask for things you may regret not asking for further down the road. For example things like research equipment, professional development and computer equipment may be more important than salary. Make sure you have done your research as far as average salary for the same position is in and around your area.  This will give you a good base for salary and if benefits are needed to exceed it.
  5. If you can try to talk to current employees about how they are finding the work. If you happen to talk to them make sure you ask about the work environment and interaction between staff. Often this is best done by asking more than 1 members of staff, some may be biased ect.

Solar Panels That Work Better on Cloudy Days

solar panels uk technologyScientists recently developed solar technology that makes them more efficient on cloudy days. The National Physical Laboratory are the guys behind this discovery.

The materials these panels are made from are much thinner cloth than regular panels. Although everything is still in early development stages there is hope to develop new products such as bags and clothing using the material. These could be used to charge your phone or mobile devices like tablets.

This new material has been named “organic photovoltaic”, it utilises organic molecules instead of the traditional semi-conductors.

Although the cells are more efficient in cloud (by around 3% more compared to direct sunlight) they are not more efficient than traditional solar panels are in direct light. Due to the lower direct sunlight we get in the uk these are an ideal substitute and will be more efficient.

UK solar energy is becoming more popular with the rising costs of gas and oil. The savings involved (and even gains) over the long run makes it a worth while investment. Find more information about solar panel installations here.


Modern Science Leads to Berkshire Murderer Caught 50 years later

A teenager Yolande Waddington was strangled and murdered in 1966. Although a full investigation was carried out at the time there was not enough evidence to find and convict anyone.

The case was later reopened by the major crime review team. With advances in Forensic science previous evidence was re-examined and put back “under the microscope”.

This led to finding David Burgess DNA on several items found at the murder scene including: a sack, headband and comb.

Enough new hard evidence was found to convict Burgess in 2011. After a 5 week trail at Berkshire’s reading crown court, his solicitors failed to defend his case and he was found guilty and charged.
