Would you turn off/on JavaScript?

It's a widely used language that makes the web what it is today, allowing for websites to be more responsive, dynamic, and interactive. Disabling JavaScript takes websites back to a time when they were simple documents without any other features.

What are the advantages of using JavaScript?

Speed. Since JavaScript is an 'interpreted' language, it reduces the time required by other programming languages like Java for compilation. JavaScript is also a client-side script, speeding up the execution of the program as it saves the time required to connect to the server.

Project Description:

A condominium building located in northern New Jersey was experiencing water infiltration into various locations around roofs, curtain wall systems, and balcony access points. The Condominium Association engaged Falcon to investigate these issues in support of their dispute resolution with the Developer

Investigation by Falcon:

  • In order to evaluate the source of the water infiltration, Falcon performed visual observations and used Infrared Imaging.
  • Infrared Imaging was used to assess the relative differences in temperature of wall areas. The relative thermal differences indicated anomalies in wall areas, which enabled Falcon to discern problematic areas and the source of leaks.
  • Falcon accounted for temperature differences that occurred due to a variety of acceptable causes unrelated to anomalies, such as:
    • Materials with different heat conductivity and emissivity, like metal
    • Heat reflective materials, like glass
    • Open areas and detailing that typically indicated cool spots, such as the areas around windows.
  • The infrared imaging allowed Falcon to study the issue without performing invasive and disruptive testing, which would have incurred an additional cost to the Association.

Summary of Findings:

The IR camera allows Falcon to find and trace leaks without invasive means. The IR camera can advise Falcon as to the construction and insulation characteristics of the wall without the expense of opening the wall.

The need to have increased security to public venues such as airports, schools, religious facilities, day care centers, shopping centers, and government buildings is nothing new. However, it has become apparent that many unexpected assaults and deadly attacks are coming from individuals that have gained a certain level of intimacy with the venues and organizations that they are invading. The attackers are not necessarily strangers, but people we know.
