Okay. For sure that the ATM that I was talking about refer to the Auto Teller Machine. Have you ever wonder what ATM is all about and how they come out with an ATM? ATM also known as ABM (Auto Banking Machine), cash point, cash line or hole in the wall. According to Wikipedia.com, it is a computerized telecommunications device that enables the clients of a financial institution to perform financial transactions without the need for a cashier, human clerk or bank teller. 

The idea of self service in retail banking was developed through independent and simultaneous efforts in Japan, Sweden, United Kingdom and United States. Despite of many ATM invention, the only registered invention was recorded in 30 June 1960 and it was first presented to public on 1959 in the Kingsdale Shopping Center, Ohio (Wikipedia.com). Since then, due to the increasing demand and widely accepted, more and more banks come out with their own Auto Teller Machine. Till today, there are various types of ATM around the world and travel with your ATM card today, are no more a burden. 

The very old types of ATM. You can only withdraw money.

And here, I introduced you with the future ATM by Apple. If you're an Apple user, the features in the ATM might sounds familiar and compared to the current ATM, I would prefer this! It's easier and more customer friendly, I guess. Let's wait whether Apple can produce it better. With the latest Apple ATM, money withdrawal are never as boring as before.

Plastic and Obesity

Assalamualaikum


Few days ago, while I was alone in the car, driving back home, I listened to IKIM.fm and they were discussing about the plastic consequences and its effect towards human and environment. At first, of course, being a business student, I wonder how bad can it be and it was a bit confuse since how come a plastic could cause you an obese? I left science stream few years ago, so pardon me for being so typical. The thing is, that's what we called technology. Don't you think a bottle just came out in shape after you added in the plastic? It went through many process to come out with one good bottle. What makes it stay in shape is the chemicals behind the product. Anyhow, if plastic do cause you an obese, I really don't know how to handle this. If we noticed, almost everything - I mean from a product packaging to toys, mostly used a plastic and the communities also depends very much on the plastic. Am I right? It's obvious to see people with plastic anywhere and I guess, plastic could be a savior and in the same time will harm you. Since it was hard for us to stop using a plastic, this is the right time for scientist to shine by creating and inventing something on organic basis.

Typically, people always mention that numbers inside the triangle underneath the bottle - like the picture below - used to be a sign of how many times the plastic had been recycled but it's a big NO! You're wrong. I was in doubt at first but after listening to the radio and had some simple research, here and there and it turns out that the symbol is not like what we think.

The number inside the triangle symbol tells you the chemical used to make a plastic. Come to think of it, no wonder people around me, sometime said that the water bottle tasted like a plastic. It's not a joke even though it sounds weird since you're drinking it directly from the bottle. Those chemicals can be easily absorbed into your food or drinks and wallah, your food is contaminated with chemicals!

Even my parent would reminds us not to took and consume any food or drinks that been exposed to heat for a long time because chemicals will react on certain level of heat. As a precaution, if you had a mineral water bottle that you kept for quite a long time and under constant heat, it is advisable to just throw it away. But wait! Do throw the bottle to recycle bin or any disposal bin as we need to live in a clean and fresh country. One small deed can lead into another, guys!

See the number? It doesn't mean that the bottle has been recycled twice.

As I said earlier, number inside the triangle represent chemicals that being used in the plastic production. However, do not ask me what kind of chemicals that they used since every plastic based product are not as the same to one another. Actually, there's a precaution way where most manufacturer, nowadays, produce product based on BPA (bisphenol A) free due to their consumer awareness on this issue. Don't get excited yet because BPA free product also got chemicals but it's more organic than those with BPA.

Please correct me if I'm wrong okay! Please look for more information and details if you want deeper understanding as what I wrote here may be contradict with the real facts. I'm a business student, never will and won't be a chemist since I got no expertise in chemistry. Sigh. Therefore, instead of using plastic bottles, there are a few other alternatives such as paper bag and biodegradable plastic, so let's used it to the fullest. Even the retailer also consider on being green, right? Why don't us as the consumer, support the national effort of making the world greener and enjoy the healthy living style in future. We might not see the repercussion of plastic today, but for the long term period, you can't even imagine what harm could it bring. To conclude with, technology affect us in so many way. When it give us happiness, it could harm us too. And the best way when you had no choice, Recycle, Reuse and Reduce (3R) might be the best resort. Plastic harm both human and environment, so go for green, guys! :)
