Chipboard is made by bonding together wood particles with an adhesive under heat and pressure to form a rigid board with a relatively smooth surface. Chipboard is available in a number of densities; normal, medium and high-density. Normal density is fairly soft and 'flaky', high-density is very solid and hard (often used for worktops and fire doors) - medium density is somewhere in between.
Chipboard is used for the backing of notepads, backing of stacks of business forms, and in scrapbooking used to ship stacks of sheets of paper to scrapbook stores. Some manufacturers are making acid-free/lignin free chipboard specifically for use in making scrapbook pages. Chipboard can be used to create thickness in scrapbook page embellishments and monogram letters

Nicotine Patch

A Nicotine Patch is a small plaster patch that adheres to the skin, designed to release varying doses of nicotine into the bloodstream in order to reduce cravings for addicted smokers who are trying to quit. This is a form of nicotine replacement therapy (NRT). The nicotine patch looks like a square tan bandage. Applied once a day in the morning to clean, dry, non-hairy skin, the nicotine patch is left on all day, and removed just before bed. Nicotine patches are also available in a clear material, making them less visible on the skin. Researchers are reporting that at least 50 percent of patients who used a nicotine patch for six weeks experienced complete relief of symptoms of ulcerative colotis, compared with 25 percent of patients who used a patch without nicotine

Satellite Receivers

A Satellite broadcasts a few watts of microwave signals from the geostationary orbit 36,000 kilometers above the earth. The transmissions are also broadcast over a wide "foodprint" area. The satellite signals suffer an attenuation of approximately 200dB, while making this 36,000 kilometers journey from the satellite to reception points on the ground. The satellite signals which finally arrive are extremely weak.
A dish antenna is used to collect these weak satellite signals over a large area - the surface of the dish. These signals are then focused by the parabolic curvature of the dish, to the focal point. Even at the focal point, the satellite signals are only a few micro-watts.
