Application Configuration Access Protocol

The Application Configuration Access Protocol is a protocol for storing and synchronizing general configuration and preference data. It was developed so that IMAP clients can access address books, user options, other data on a central server and be kept in synch across all clients. Two International ACAP Conferences were held, one in Pittsburgh, PA, USA, in 1997, the other at Qualcomm Incorporated, San Diego, CA, USA, in February 1998. ACAP grew to encompass several other areas, including bookmark management for web browsers—it's a roaming protocol for Internet applications. ACAP is in use by at least four clients and three servers to varying degrees, but it has never achieved the popularity of Lightweight Directory Access Protocol or SyncML, it is a deceptively simple protocol, but the combination of three key features, hierarchical data, fine-grained access control, "contexts" or saved searches with notification, has caused serious problems for server implementors. Unlike LDAP, ACAP was designed for frequent writes, disconnected mode access, so on.

It handles data inheritance, sometimes known as stacking, which provides easy creation of defaults. The IETF ACAP Working Group ceased activity in April 2004, having released two RFCs, RFC 2244 and RFC 2245.

Connecticut Route 136

Route 136 is a state highway in southwestern Connecticut, running from Darien to Easton. The route was established in 1932 to serve the beach communities between Darien and Southport, its eastern end was relocated in 1963 to head northeast from Westport to Easton instead. Route 136 begins at an intersection with US 1 in Darien and heads east, intersecting I-95 before crossing into Norwalk. In Norwalk, it continues south and northeast through the Rowayton section of the city before a 1.11 miles section maintained by the city between the intersection of Wilson and Meadow Streets and the intersection of Water and Washington Street, after which it continues east across the Norwalk River, through a triangular one-way couplet and into Westport. In Westport, Route 136 turns northeast along the Saugatuck River, intersecting I-95 again before crossing the Saugatuck overlapping Route 57, passing beneath Route 15 without a junction, continuing northeast across the northwest corner of Fairfield into Easton.

In Easton, it continues northeast before ending at an intersection with Route 59. Modern Route 136 in Westport and Easton was the southern portion of an early 19th-century private turnpike known as the Branch Turnpike, incorporated in 1831; the road ran from Wesport center, through Easton center and the Upper Stepney section of Monroe, to the Housatonic River at Bennett's Bridge in Newtown, collected tolls until 1851. Between Easton center and Upper Stepney, the old turnpike is now part of Route 59. In the early 1920s, Connecticut assigned numbers to its state roads. A coastal road in the Gold Coast region of the state running parallel to U. S. Route 1, from Darien to Southport, was designated as State Highway 335; the former Branch Turnpike, remained unnumbered. Route 136 was formed as part of the 1932 state highway renumbering as a renumbering of old Highway 335. In 1963, Route 136 was relocated to its current route, including the portion along the old Branch Turnpike, as a result of the 1961 Route Reclassification Act.

Maintenance of the coastal portion of old Route 136 in Westport and Fairfield was returned to the towns. Additionally, a 1.1-mile section in the South Norwalk section of Norwalk is still maintained by the city and is one of only two such maintenance gaps in a state highway in Connecticut. The entire route is in Fairfield County

House in multiple occupation

A house in multiple occupation, or a house of multiple occupancy, is a British English term which refers to residential properties where ‘common areas’ exist and are shared by more than one household. Most HMOs occupied by one family; some housing legislation makes a distinction between those buildings occupied on long leases and those where the majority of the occupants are short-term tenants. The definition of an HMO has its origins in fire safety legislation, following a series of publicised, preventable deaths in overcrowded buildings. In HMOs, bathrooms and kitchens / kitchenettes are designated as common areas shared by all tenants, but contractually speaking common areas may include stairwells and landings. Houses may be divided up into bed-sitting rooms or simple lodgings. Compliant HMOs are characterised by a higher standing of fire proofing, after a series of deaths in overcrowded houses. According to the Campaign for Bedsit Rights, three people a week died in fires in houses in multiple occupation between 1985 and 1991.

HMOs were principally defined by the Housing Act 1985, as being "...a house, occupied by persons who do not form a single household". The Local Government and Housing Act 1989 expanded the definition to include any part of a building which: "would not be regarded as a house" and "was constructed or subsequently adapted for occupation by a single household"Both the 1985 and the 1989 Acts have since been superseded by the Housing Act 2004, which established a more complete and complex definition and introduced the requirement for some HMOs to be subject to mandatory licensing; the Housing Act 1985 was a consolidating act. The definition of HMO in section 345 HA85 was from section 129 of the Housing Act 1974; the Housing Act 2004 introduced mandatory licensing for large HMOs which were defined in the Act as properties with 5 or more tenants forming more than 1 household sharing facilities such as kitchen bathroom and/or toilets over 3 or more floors. On 1st October 2018 "The Licensing of Houses in Multiple Occupation Order 2018" amended the large HMO definition in the 2004 Act by abolishing the "3 or more floors" requirement.

Purpose-built flats in a block of 3 or more such flats, were excluded from the amended classification. Apart from the statutory definition of HMOs requiring a mandatory licence, Local Authorities have the power to introduce approved licensing schemes which include smaller HMOs as licensable; these are for 3 or more tenants forming more than 1 household. The Housing Act 2004 introduced a classification of HMO under section 257 of that Act which includes self-contained flats in a converted block, where: the conversion did not comply with 1991 building regulations less than 2/3 of the self-contained flats are owner-occupiedThis classification helps bring buildings with inadequate fire and safety regulations under the control of Local Authority inspection regimes. S257 HMOs are expressly included in LA Additional licensing schemes for HMOs; the Council Tax Regulations 1992 provide a different definition of HMO, used for determining Council Tax liability. The landlord is required to pay Council Tax on behalf of tenants.

HMOs living spaces are smaller but cheaper than a one bedroom flat. HMO agreements include most utility bills with the rent; this is because it is difficult for landlords to apportion the cost of bills to each tenant and it is more appealing to potential tenants. HMO licensing was first introduced in Scotland in 2000. To be granted a licence under the scheme, properties must meet certain standards, such as presence of smoke detectors and fire doors; these provisions were included in response to a fatal fire at a student flat in Glasgow, which had no working smoke detectors, metal bars preventing escape through a window. HMO schemes have been subsequently introduced to other parts of the UK, though the legal definition of what constitutes an HMO varies between Scotland, Northern Ireland, England & Wales. In the United Kingdom, an HMO has the following characteristics: at least 3 tenants live there, forming more than 1 household and toilet, bathroom or kitchen facilities are shared between tenants.

Definitions of what constitutes an HMO and a household are set out in the law for each legal jurisdiction. A home is a large HMO if all of the following apply: at least five tenants live there, forming more than 1 household toilet, bathroom or kitchen facilities are shared between tenantsBefore 1 October 2018, there was an additional criterion that the building was three or more storeys. Landlords of large HMOs must apply for a licence and must comply with certain standards and obligations. HMOs do not need to be licensed if they are managed or owned by a housing association or co-operative, a council, a further education institute or student housing provider, a health service or a police or fire authority. Where an Article 4 direction has been applied by a local authority, planning permission is required for the change of use of a dwelling house to HMO accommodation in the area designated; this is to protect the housing mix in particular areas of a city. Local authorities and enforce the licensing of HMOs in England and Wales.

Depending on the region of the Authority, they have some or all of the following powers, to vary: the minimum size of a property requiring a licence the licence fee and the conditions of the licen

China's waste import ban

China's waste import ban, instated at the end of 2017, prevented foreign inflows of waste products. This decision caused widespread repercussions on a global scale; this decision in China will promote investment in domestic recycling facilities and innovation in plastics production, making these products easier to reuse. It can inspire the public to change the current “one-time use” culture. Pollution and wastes are the biggest environmental problem faced by the global. In July of 2018, China produced a document to the World Trade Organization regarding environmental and health issues. China requested an urgent change to be made revolving the imported waste China imports from other countries; the recommended list was pushing forward for wastes such as plastics and paper products to be banned from imports. Waste disposing is a great challenge faced by China, each type of waste disposing industry has its advantages and disadvantages. So choosing a proper combination of different waste disposing industries is much more efficient than adopting monotonic industry.

The technology on waste disposal industries should always improving and creating. Technological progress can as a endogenous factor to increase the aggregate demand in economy and driven the economic growth in China; the first step of disposing of the waste is to divide them into different categories. Recycling standards are various from different countries, but we can divide them into two big categories and none-recyclable waste. In general, plastic products can be recycled; the difficulty is the sorting process. For example, although the plastic bottle is theoretically 100% recyclable, the plastic bottle cap and the label cannot be mixed together for recycling because they are different plastic materials; the sorting machine is unable to unscrew the cap and tear off the label, so this step must be done manually by the sorting worker. This process increases the business cost and human resources; some illegal industries recycled mixed plastic products together to control the costs, this cause incomplete recycling of plastic which causes some unexpected environmental issues.

The general disposal method is to categorize the types of waste and dispose of them in different processes. However, a few illegal industries want to minimize the cost of disposing of the waste, so they choose the easiest way to deal with the rubbish. By inappropriate use of landfills and incinerators, earning money from the disposal of waste, rather than the secondary benefits of proper recycling waste; the burning of uncategorized waste produces toxic and contaminate air to the sky which harmful for human health. The carbon dioxide produced by the process of burning wastes. By statistic, the global total carbon dioxide produced in 2018 was about 37.1 gigatonnes. Some power plants were operated by the heat produced from the burning of waste, it is a combination of disposing of waste and producing electricity which adopted in China's waste disposing industries. Pyrolysis plants is an innovative technology; the process of disposing of is describing as "Plastics are crushed and melted at temperatures below gasification temperature and contain less oxygen.

Heat decomposes plastic polymers into smaller hydrocarbons that can be refined into diesel or other petrochemical products, including new plastics." This technology is still in the demonstration phase and hopping to expand globally. The facilities are built in China as well. Pyrolysis plants can recycle many hard to decomposed materials, it will only produce no contamination at all. The economic profits from expensive pyrolysis plants is the determinate factor of whether to build more of these plants or not. China suggested in July 2017 to stop import 24 kinds of solid waste from foreign countries. Solid wastes including plastics, paper products, textiles, etc; the new policy implemented on January 1, 2018, banned the imports of those 24 solid waste as mentioned above. An tighter policy introduced on March 1, 2018, aimed to ban all waste imports to the country. Ministry of Ecology and Environment of China brought the policy into effect on April 19, 2018. 16 types of “Category 7” materials will be banned from import beginning December 31st, 2018.

Another 16 materials will be banned on December 31, 2019. It's important to notice that, quite amount of imported foreign wastes were unauthorized by the government, which flowed in country through reselling licenses, fake report, smuggling, etc; the conservative estimate is a few times the national licensing quota. The cost of obtaining foreign waste is low, it can obtain high profits. It is a “honey” for illegal people, it is a "poison" that destroys the local ecological environment and endangers the lives and health of the people. The documentaries "Plastic China" and "Beijing Besieged by Waste" told the cruel truth about garbage in China, it is a story that revealed the poverty and humanity. Electronic waste transactions began in the eastern coastal areas of China and enabled local farmers to get rich quickly. Take Guiyu, Guangdong Province as an example, there are 150,000 people in the town, 120,000 people are engaged in the e-waste industry, they handle millions of tons of e-waste every year, the transaction amount is 75 million US dollars.

After more than ten years of development of the garbage dismantling industry, Guiyu has become a wealthy town. However, the wealth of Guiyu has come at the expe

Toshiro Sakai

Toshiro Sakai is a former tennis player from Japan. Sakai, a student of Waseda University, competed in the 1970 Summer Universiade, held in Turin, Italy, he and Jun Kamiwazumi won the doubles gold medal for Japan. When the Japanese Davis Cup side upset Australia in 1971, Sakai played a large role, winning both of his matches, over Colin Dibley and the deciding fifth rubber against John Cooper. Sakai made the third round of the 1971 US Open. In 1972, Sakai was semi-finalist in the U. S. Men's Clay Court Championships. At Wimbledon in 1973, Sakai was eliminated in the third round by Ilie Năstase, having earlier secured wins over Frew McMillan and Hans Kary. In Osaka that year, he beat Zeljko Franulovic in the semi-finals to make it into his first Grand Prix final, which he lost to Ken Rosewall.
