As you travel around and visit the various public toilets, you tend to come across an ever growing array of hand dryers. Notwithstanding the different ecological benefits, which obviously vary between units, some hand dryers are more effective and sleek than others. Not that I have seen any list of top ranked hand dryers, although such much exist somewhere, I thought I’d post about this Dyson Airblade hand dryer, invented by billionaire Sir James Dyson. I found it extremely attractive, sleek and effective. You basically put your hands down into the slot and the thrust of cold air dries your hands in no time flat (officially 10 seconds). When you extract your hands, the machine actually turns off immediately. Here is a write up on gizmodo. The Dyson Airblade apparently uses 80% less energy than normal warm hand dryers and is thus better for the environment. The Airblade is a credit to design and engineering. Check the company’s site for a better animated visual of the product.

I liked your blog very much especially the question about whether teachers were 'nimble' enough to react to the changes in pedagogy. I think not. At least in Canada there is no motivation or incentive to do things differently and the burden to 'relearn' is too great for them. Universities need to start to train differently and the physical structures of schools and classrooms need to change too. My, there is lots to do!
Thanks for your comment… I think that the Educational institutions and facilities around the world are all struggling to change … as they were all programmed and formatted by the way they themselves were educated/trained… We need to do a lot of un-programming to inject more curiosity, creativity and individuality into the way learning is organized.
Aside from the conventional blow dryer found in most department stores, beauty supply stores have started to carry state-of-the art blow dryers and thermal styling tools that utilize ceramic and negative ionic energy to style hair and keep it healthy. A blow dryer that uses this type of energy dries your hair in half the time using less heat. The construction of the ionic blow dryer also utilizes ceramic heating elements instead of traditional metal ones to infuse moisture and health deep into the hair strand while at the same time drying it. ^`
