    Setting up a Dynamics 365 Business Central development environment tenant using Docker

    >>Hello and welcome to this video in which I will talk about setting up a sandbox environment for Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central using Docker containers. We’ll go into a brief introduction about Docker itself, and then I’ll cover how Docker is used to create containers for a variety of different versions of Dynamics NAV and Business Central. You will learn how easy it is to deploy any available version in a matter of minutes. I want to take a moment to give a shout out to Freddy Kristiansen’s who pioneered this technology to be used for NAV and Business Central. Next time you see him, shake his hand and…

    Are We Running Out Of Drinking Water?

    You’ve probably heard a lot about rising sea levels and flooding like never before. But the biggest water crisis brought on by climate change could be not having enough to drink. Thirty-three of the world’s biggest cities, with over 3 million people, already face extremely high water stress. That’s a total of 255 million people throughout the world. But by 2030, that number could almost double. 71% of the planet is covered in water, but only 2% of that is fresh. And only half of that is actually accessible. 1%. The rest is trapped in glaciers and ice sheets. After looking at how much water is actually available, and how…

    Sustainability? Answering Google’s 4 Most Search Questions

    Hi Alex here. Nice to see you again. I am excited today because, we are answering the 4 most searched questions about sustainability on Google. This is the TOP 4 questions people have when they search sustainability on Google: What is a simple definition of sustainability? What are the 3 pillars of sustainability? Why is sustainability so important? and How can we achieve sustainability? Ok, let’s answer the first question: Sustainability is the capacity of our human society to continue indefinitely within Earth’s natural cycles. Then a development that leads toward full sustainability. It makes sense so far, right!? What are these natural cycles? In 1989, after many drafts, a…

    What does Net Zero emissions actually mean?

    It’s easy to get lost in the numbers when we talk about climate cha… *DISTANT* The limit of 2 degrees or 1.5 degrees was agreed at COP21 in 2015. CO2 is at over 410ppm and emissions need to fall by… But there’s one number that is very easy to get your head around. Zero. Net zero greenhouse gas emissions, to be precise. Net zero just means adding no greenhouse gases overall. We need to reach net zero if we want to stop global warming. And the more we want to limit it, the sooner we need to reach net zero. For our most ambitious targets, we need to reach it…

    Program Spotlight: Environmental Science and Management (PhD)

    Environmental Management is a really interesting program because it brings in the human aspect of the environment. It’s not just about the natural environment, but how humans interact with it. I found this program in Environmental Management very interesting, especially because it is basically merging the knowledge of the scientist with the knowledge of the decision maker. We take Economics, Environmental Law and Policy and we take things like Geochemistry and Water Resource Management. So I think that allows us for looking at problems, environmental problems differently and trying to solve them in a different way. Coming into this program, I think a lot of people, they have very diverse…

    Research on River Pollution | Research | Cleaning Rivers | The Ocean Cleanup

    We’re in Guatemala. We’re focusing on the Montagua river And it’s a river which flows from Guatemala City towards the Caribbean coast and what we found out is that there is actually one big plastic or debris source near Guatemala City And then it flows down and we see it stuck on all the banks And close to the source it’s a lot of soft plastics and on the beaches we only find hard floating plastics It’s very important to identify the sources where is the plastic actually coming from? I think it’s one of the main tasks This is point number one. This is the start so this is…

    Pollution Prevention and Wastewater Pretreatment successes at VT and NH breweries

    [music] Narrator: Like many food and beverage manufacturers, breweries produce process wastes. Narrator: Brewery process wastes contain a lot of organic material like yeast, spent grains, and trub. Narrator: These wastes can pose a challenge to manage through municipal wastewater systems, since facilities vary in available capacity to handle high strength wastes. Narrator: Many cannot accept a large amount of brewery waste and still provide needed treatment services to the rest of the community. Nick Giannetti, VT DEC: The municipal wastewater treatment facility is crucial in protecting Vermont’s surface waters. They’re the one who receiving and treating this wastewater and discharging it to the river itself. Nick Giannetti: Food and…

    The world’s most polluted river | DW Documentary

    Our journey begins in the mountains of the island of Java….. At the foot of the Wayang volcano there is a lake….. The cradle of the Citarum river. Titi Bachtiar, a geographer at a university in the region, knows this place well. Situ Cisanti is the name of this sacred lake at the beginning of the Citarum. If we walk a little further, I’ll show you the real source, where the bubbles come out of the ground. The water here is very pure — clean enough to wash your face with? It’s more than just home for me. I feel at peace here. The water is still so clean. Legend…

    The Natural Environment of Tudor London

    I could have chosen any number of individuals to act as a guide through the Tudor London. but we know that Sir Thomas was an intelligent man with an eye for curiosity and an understanding of the broad sweep of history too – and that’s a sound basis I think for a companionable walk. I’m not a historian, so I should own up to that. I’m an environmental scientist, so some of the history, I’ve had – I’ve had to get to grips with myself. Strictly speaking the medieval period ended and the Tudor period began on the 22nd of August 1485, when Henry Tudor defeated Richard the third at…

    Advanced Conversation with Jennifer on the Environment & Climate Change 🌎

    Hi everyone. I’m Jennifer from English with Jennifer, and I’m ready to share another current issue. If you’d like to communicate more confidently and effectively in English, remember to subscribe to my YouTube channel. I have videos on many different topics, from current issues to grammar, and everything in between: pronunciation, vocabulary, reading, writing, listening, and American culture. Let’s get started with our new topic. A couple of things have made the environment a central issue in U.S. news. First, it’s election season here, and all the top Democratic presidential candidates have laid out their plans to address climate change. We’ll see how Trump responds as we get closer to…
