The gas mask is a mask used to protect the user from inhaling airborne pollutants and toxic gasses. The mask forms a sealed cover over the nose and mouth, but may also cover the eyes and other vulnerable soft tissues of the face. Some gas masks are also respirators, though the word gas mask is often used to refer to military equipment (e.g. field protective mask). The user of the gas mask is not protected from gas that the skin can absorb. Most gas mask filters will last around 24 hours in a nuclear biological chemical (NBC) situation.
Airborne toxic materials may be gaseous (for example sulfur mustard and chlorine gas used in World War I) or particulates (such as many biological agents developed for weapons such as bacteria, viruses, and toxins). Many gas masks include protection from both types. Gas masks are used in construction to protect against welding fumes, in deconstruction to protect against asbestos or other hazardous particles, and in the chemical industry when handling hazardous materials, as in making repairs to leaking equipment or cleaning up after spills; workers have usually issued gas masks as a precaution against leaks.
During demonstrations and protests where tear gas or CS-gas is employed by riot police, gas masks are commonly used by police and demonstrators alike. Aside from serving their functional purposes, gas masks are also used as emblems in industrial music, with the most notable example, the subgenre of drum and bass called Neurofunk. These emblems are used by graffiti taggers because the mask protects them from the paint canister's toxic fumes, and by urban explorers venturing into environments where hazardous materials, such as asbestos, may be present.

Product information management (PIM) means managing the information required to market and sell products through distribution channels. A central set of product data can be used to feed information to media such as websites, print catalogs, ERP systems, and electronic data feeds to trading partners.
PIM systems generally need to support multiple geographic locations, multi-lingual data, and maintenance and modification of product information within a centralized catalog. Information kept by a business can be scattered throughout departments and held by employees or systems, instead of being available centrally; data may be saved in various formats, or only be available in hard copy form. Information may be needed for detailed product descriptions with prices, or calculating freight costs. PIM represents a solution for centralized, media-independent data maintenance, as well as efficient data collection, management, refinement, and output.

A crank sensor is an electronic device used in an internal combustion engine, both petrol, and diesel, to monitor the position or rotational speed of the crankshaft. This information is used by engine management systems to control the fuel injection or the ignition system timing and other engine parameters. Before electronic crank sensors were available, the distributor would have to be manually adjusted to a timing mark on petrol engines.
The crank sensor can be used in combination with a similar camshaft position sensor to monitor the relationship between the pistons and valves in the engine, which is particularly important in engines with variable valve timing. This method is also used to "synchronize" a four stroke engine upon starting, allowing the management system to know when to inject the fuel. It is also commonly used as the primary source for the measurement of engine speed in revolutions per minute.
Common mounting locations include the main crank pulley, the flywheel, the camshaft or on the crankshaft itself. This sensor is the 2nd most important sensor in modern-day engines after the camshaft position sensor. When it fails, there is a probability the engine will not start, or cut out while running.

How to upload products -
While listing products on Amazon is a great way to sell your products and expose them to millions of customers, adding multiple items to your merchant account can be a time-consuming process. Instead of adding products one-by-one, sellers with Pro Merchant Subscription accounts can use Amazon's tools to upload product details in bulk.
1. Download Amazon's pre-built inventory file template from Amazon.com that fits your product category. This template is a Microsoft Excel file. You can use free programs such as Apache OpenOffice Calc and LibreOffice Calc to open and edit the file if you do not own Excel.
2. Open the template in a spreadsheet program. Each template has detailed instructions specific to your product category at the top of the document. Carefully read the instructions before entering your product details so you do not make any mistakes.
3. Print the "Data Definitions" tab in the spreadsheet. This worksheet includes important details on the acceptable values and formats you can enter into the template. Keep it handy as a reference when filling out the template.
4. Add your inventory items to the template. Pay close attention to template columns to make sure you enter product details in the correct cell. Enter details such as SKU, product ID, title, brand, manufacturer, description and more. You can also add bullet points to expand on the description of your item in the cells labeled "BulletPoint1," "BulletPoint2," "BulletPoint3" and so on.
5. Save the file in the .xls format when you are finished entering product details. In Excel, OpenOffice Calc and LibreOffice Calc, select "File" from the program menu, then click "Save As."
6. Save the file again as a tab-delimited .txt file, per Amazon's instructions. This is the file format needed for uploading on Amazon.com. If a dialog pops up that says the file format does not support files containing multiple worksheets or something similar, click "OK." If another warning says the document contains features incompatible with the file format, click "Yes."
7. Log in to your Amazon seller account. Click "Upload multiple items," then select the template type for the file you want to upload. To completely replace all of the items in your inventory, select "Purge and Replace."
8. Click "Select File Upload," then "Browse." Locate your product file on your computer using the dialog box, select it, then click "Upload Now." After you upload the document, the page shows the status of the upload. Refresh the page to see the upload progress. Files over 5MB may take several hours to process.

Mostly no, if what you mean is will they keep your feet warm and dry. They are not water proof, unless specifically stated, and they are not adequately insulated. What you want are PAC boots, Heavy leather and rubber boots with a felt inner boot.

One of the causes of this is when your internet cable in plugged without an internet.
*Solution: restart comp without any internet coming in (in case if its your internet's fault).
Other causes are the capitalization of the letters.
*Check weather you pressed the right buttons and see if your letters where capitalized or not.

Bullet proof vests normally provide very little to no protection at all against bullets fired from rifles (like the M4 carbine 5.56mm or AK-47 7.62mm). They only provide protection against bullets fired from all hand guns.

The Legality of carrying a police baton


In most countries it is legal for law enforcement and military officials to carry. For a civilian to carry a police baton varies from country to country.

Within the United states the laws regarding carrying and pocessing a police baton change from state to state. In some states like Vermont and Arizona one is able to legally carry a baton if you don't have criminal intent or unlawful behaviour. On the other end of the spectrum states like California prohibit the carrying of any club like weapons by a civilian.

In the UK the prevention of crime act of 1953 prohibited the carrying of batons in a public space because they are objects that are adapted for causing harm to another person. The UK also has laws about the manufacturing, selling and importing batons.

Probably one of the most leanient countries in regards to carrying police batons is Canada. They have no laws against carrying a baton in a public area so long as it is not spring loaded or being carried consealed. While in Sweden one is permitted to own a baton so long as they don't carry it in a public space if they are a private citizen.
