    A construction site is a risky space where labourers have to work under exposed condition, fighting the rough weather and tough industrial challenges. This is why safety is a major concern while buying scaffolding equipment. Apart from fighting external challenges, there are many other critical constructional challenges that workers must overcome–the scaffolding are mounted and dismounted in accordance with the schedule and convenience – whereby scaffolding equipment must be heavy-duty and durable.(Information credit: http://www.southendscaffolding.co.za) Deaths and accidents are not uncommon in construction sites. As a contractor, it is your responsibility to look after the safety of your employees. Not sure what you can do to improve the safety of the project site? This article will walk you through some common dos and don’ts that will help enhance the safety of your workers. Dos When you purchase scaffolding equipment, safety should be your primary concern. To avoid casualties in the construction site, don’t compromise with the quality of scaffolding you purchase. Find out about the international scaffolding standards and choose your equipment wisely. Always get your equipment from an accredited vendor and only settle for products which are manufactured strictly following the standards set by the SABS. Construction sites are a vulnerable place to work. Hiring amateur workers who lack experience can be catastrophic. Contractors must ensure that all the employees have adequate training required to handle scaffoldings efficiently. In addition, workers should be trained to handle constructional exigencies. Scaffoldings need to be erected, dismounted and altered as per the working pattern. To avoid any hazards, make sure that these alterations are supervised by professional inspectors. Workers should wear a hard hat when working on or with the scaffolds. Nowadays, workers wear boots, jackets and other safety gear too. Train your workers to be alert about the people working above and below them. If you find that someone is mishandling the scaffolding, take necessary actions. Don’ts Don’t leave anything dangling on the scaffolding at the end of your work. Littering debris everywhere in and around the scaffolding might lead to tripping. Don’t overburden your scaffolding structure with heavy loads. Know how much load the structure can take to ensure safety. Don’t be reckless while mounting the scaffolding structures. Use hook-on ladders and guard rails to enhance the safety of your workers. Don’t meddle with the scaffolds unless you are asked and supervised. All the repairs should be handled by professionals. Don’t let the workers mount the scaffolding setup after heavy rain. Allow the water to dry out to prevent accidents. Construction workers have to work daily under exposed circumstances. Unavoidably, construction sites are one of the most accident prone areas. Apart from working with colossal structures, workers need to work at heights, in pits and on climb ladders. As a contractor, it is your primary responsibility to take necessary safety measures for accidents and mishaps.

    Whether it is refurbishing a kitchen or building a new one, getting the right set of the appliance is not as simple as it sounds. One requires a valid design plan to furnish the kitchen with necessary items. Besides, there are a number of considerations before deciding on what to include and what to strike out. When it comes to a kitchen appliance, there is no lack of quality appliance stores in Houston, accommodating a wide range of appliances, ranging from refrigerators, cooktops, dishwashers, wall ovens, chimneys to other specialty appliances. When it comes to buying large appliances, such as, refrigerators and dishwashers, it is natural to feel vexed, as operability is a huge factor and not appliances are worth their values. In case if you are wondering about how to kick-start the process, here are a few buying tips that can help you make a good investment: (Information Credit – Knsales.com) Avoid Impulsive Decision The most important mistake that people make while purchasing appliances is making a random choice. Even if you are not willing to plan ahead, at least make sure you are not making any impulsive decisions. Also, people often chose their products based on discounts, without considering factors like warranty and operability. This can lead to mediocre choices, and the products might fail to operate smoothly after a while. Know What You Need Knowing what you will need is half the work done. In case you have a small kitchen and a few members to accommodate, you will certainly need to reconsider large systems like big wall ovens and large ventilation hoods, which might clutter the given space and limit its functionality. Read Instruction Manuals Reading between the lines is a good idea when you are settling for your options, as this gives you a clear idea of what features are available, allowing you to compare the features before the purchase.  Don’t Let Appearances Fool You Many buyers fall prey to the high-tech appliances, which boasts of superior features but ultimately fail to deliver. Find out about the applications and read about the reviews if that is applicable, but decide in haste.  Get the Right Size Getting the right size is as important as getting the right equipment. If you have fewer members to accommodate, it is pointless to splurge extravagantly on these large appliances. Besides, the right equipment size plays a vital role in the quality of food. Inspect Thoroughly Regardless of where you fetch your products, buyers must inspect the appliances thoroughly before finalizing their decisions. Consulting the inspector is a good idea, and you can ask for a demo if that is convenient.  A kitchen renovation is an excellent opportunity for replacing an old set of appliances with a new one. While there are plenty of options available to homeowners, deciding on what to purchase can still be an excruciatingly difficult task, and therefore expert consultations are recommended. The above guide can certainly help you in the selection process, but your considerations are not limited to just these. Research about your options and choose appliances that tick all the right boxes.

    With the fashion industry booming with giant enterprises, finding an appropriate label has become a tedious affair. While many international labels are specializing in avant-garde designs, some of the Nordic designers have become the talking point in the industry, captivating the consumers with a spectrum of a vibrant ensemble. Speaking of the big names in contemporary Danish fashion houses, Ivan Grundahl has expanded the horizon to provide apparels that combine dark Nordic aesthetics with international tropes. Founded in 1973, the fashion house is internationally renowned for its universal appeal. A prestigious name in Scandinavian countries, Ivan Grundahl, has penetrated into the global market in the recent times, and as an influential label in northern Europe, it has made a considerable impact in the United States. (Information Credit – http://www.be-jewel.com/manufacturer/index/product/designer/3) Ivan Grundahl creations go beyond what’s trendy, experimenting with various kinds of textiles and bold designs to appeal to a wide range of public. Ivan Grundahl designs are cosmopolitan, while the designer fuses asymmetrical lines, Scandinavian motifs and a number of architectural shapes to produce clothing lines for an international audience. Mostly available in monochromes, the extravagant designs are appreciated for their fluidity and fragile appeal. The garments, which are found in an array of bold colors, can be teamed up with pocket bags, belts, as well as other accessories. Ivan Grundahl, a Pioneer in the Danish Fashion World Based in Copenhagen, Ivan Grundahl’s splendid Danish designs come in straddling layers and structure. As a rebel in his own right, Ivan Grundahl designs display an unconventional mix of darkness and subtlety, which come alive in multifarious apparels, from asymmetrical skirts, trousers, cardigans, T-shirts, scarves to sweatshirts. In many ways, Ivan Grundahl designs deconstruct the traditional structure, as the dark monochromes conjure a sinister mood which is undercut by a poetic fragility. The paradox in the clothing line can be understood in terms of its contrast between construction and fluidity. Interestingly, the designs balance the rawness of the construction with sophistication, juxtaposing distressed materials with natural fibers and leather. Specializing in a spectrum of ensembles, the groundbreaking work of Ivan Grundahl has been appreciated among the budding talents of the contemporary fashion industry. What’s more, infusing traditional Scandinavian tropes in the designs, the label has gone beyond its traditional roots to exploit Global tropes, enabling the users to make a powerful fashion statement. Subverting the conventional structures, the label is a game changer in the contemporary fashion universe. Whether it’s the handling of distressing materials or the deconstruction of traditional construction, Ivan Grundahl clothing line stands out from the rest in terms of its quirky appeal. As for users, the carefully crafted apparels are an ideal match for any occasion, casual or formal, and are available in a variety of sizes. Blending the dark Nordic aesthetics with the contemporary trends, the dazzling collections from Ivan Grundahl are made for the modern women, who appreciate subtlety and clever craftsmanship.

    Technology has both been a boon and a curse in terms of accessibility. We are greatly benefitted from fast health, telecommunication, electricity, transportation and delivery services. However, the curse comes in the form of easy access to illicit substances, narcotics and other morally/physically reprehensible materials. The worst affected by this curse are the parents of adolescents. They have to bear the brunt of the waywardness of their children. Although addiction does not discriminate on the basis of age, teenagers are still more susceptible to substance abuse than people of other age groups. This is because adolescence is the time of primary and secondary physical, mental and emotional growth. They learn about the world through a new eye. Often, resulting from an enthusiastic experimental spree, a young teen finds a new thrill from substance abuse. Experiments grow into a habit and then addiction. It can happen to anyone anywhere. This is where teenage rehab programs play their role in society. (Information Credit – http://sancawc.co.za) Addictions can be traced back to simple things like a couple of energy drinks or a few spoons of cold medication. Here is a concise list of common addictions: 1.) Caffeine Abuse 2.) Alcohol abuse 3.) Smoking/Nicotine Use 4.) Illicit drug abuse Marijuana Heroin Cocaine Crystal Meth Ecstasy LSD 5.) Prescription drug abuse Dextromethorphan (Cough Syrup) Vicodin Adderall Steroid Abuse Ativan Xanax Valium There are more ways to harm you than to help you. The rehabilitation programs aim to change the scenario. The motto behind almost every rehab centre is the same: teaching the teens to abstain from drugs because drugs are not the solution to their problems. They are taught to figure out the underlying problems by adopting a healthy coping mechanism. Here are some key functions and services of a typical rehab centre: Detoxing from alcohol and substance abuse Detox is necessary for patients who are physically dependant on drugs. Detoxing at home is not advisable as it can be physically painful and even life-threatening. Individual Therapy The initial counsel is offered by a primary therapist. He plays the vital role in guiding your child through the steps of getting clean. Continuous evaluation and assessment through multiple sessions a week actually helps in building a feeling of trust and reliability. Evidence-based methods such as Dialectical Behavioural Therapy (DBT), Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), along with other techniques are used. Family Therapy The homely environment is necessary for treatment. Family therapy gives the opportunity to both the parents and their children to understand the dynamics of the current scenario; they are then taught relevant skills to sort out the situation. This accounts for a seamless transition back home after recovery. Academic Support Getting treated at the cost of academic development is not really a viable option. Therefore, as we keep in mind the academic requirements in mind, the rehab centres coordinate classwork with their home school, provide virtual courses, GED courses, or assist them with credit recovery. Group Therapy The most important aspect of rehab is making the child understand that he is not alone in his struggles. Group therapy helps the teen to gain perspective on their problems. It helps the teen to learn to cope with the underlying causes and it prevents the teen from relapsing.  Life is not always a bed of roses; hardly ever so. But substance abuse is never an option. Everyone deserves love and care, and most importantly, a second chance. As the saying goes “Just because someone stumbles and loses their path, doesn't mean they're lost forever.”

       By now, probably everyone is aware of the terms “pollution” and “global warming”. From acid rain and erosion to the unavailability of drinking water, the world has already witnessed several major impacts of pollution and global warming. In the current scenario, it has become essential to develop new ways to preserve nature and reduce our levels of pollution. Experiments are also being conducted to find feasible solutions where the ultra-modern workplace can thrive without leaving behind an excessive carbon footprint. (Information Credit – Oxbow SA) Being environment conscious, many companies in South Africa are nowadays providing eco energy solutions for the office space. This type of company will analyse the electricity spend of your company first and then discuss what would be the best solution for your office. a. Energy reducing lights: Gone are the days when people used high power bulbs. Advancement of technology has led to the invention of bulbs and tube lights that consume less energy and at the same time have greater output than the old-fashioned bulbs. Light Emitting Diode (LED) and Compact Fluorescent Lights (CFL) are some of the feasible solutions that are extensively used in place of traditional bulbs. They have the power to light up a larger area and if the placement of lights is done strategically then, even the nooks and crannies will also be illuminated properly. The CFL and LED lights are also priced lower than the traditional bulbs. b. Heating Solutions: In South Africa, a major part of electricity is derived from coal. There is also the issue of depletion of coal. Therefore, the companies in South Africa providing eco energy solutions are looking in the direction of other natural sources as the source of mass electricity production. Solar power and hydro power have become a popular means of generating electricity as alternative solutions. For instance, if the solar panels are placed correctly then it is possible to generate more than 10 watts per square foot. Due to advancement in technology it is now possible to install solar panels in a much smaller area and generate enough power to supply electricity to the whole office building. Different alternate heating solutions are also used by the eco energy solutions companies in Cape Town to reduce electricity bills of office buildings in and around Cape Town. When you are choosing an eco-energy solution providing company then, you should look in to whether they have the necessary skill to install alternative energy solutions. Their services should follow the electric wiring installations guidelines and they should have a Fire and Safety certificate. The aim is to reduce your electricity spends per annum by providing feasible solutions like LED and CFL lights and make your office dependent on alternative sources like solar energy. You should also check out whether the solutions provided by the company are within your budget. It is best to choose an experienced company in the field of providing eco-energy solutions in Cape Town.

    Like kitchen renovations, bathroom renovations have become a trend in modern homes. Clear-cut planning of the bathroom remodelling will ensure that you are satisfied with the end product, so take the time to make sure planning is done properly. There are several companies in southern suburbs of Cape Town that offer professional bathroom renovation services. Keeping the remodelling professional and within budget is not as easy as it appears to be, so below are some pointers from the experts at these renovation companies: (Information Credit – http://homedecorinteriors.co.za/services/bathroom-renovations) 1. Have a proper plan before starting: Working out a proper plan with a professional remodeler will assure that the budget you allotted for the renovation of your bathroom, the design and the timeline are all realistic. Sound planning will also prevent hidden costs and unnecessary, costly mistakes. 2. Maintain plumbing: Another reason to hire a professional is that they will show you how to make use of existing plumbing pipes. Relocating essential bathroom utilities like the toilet and the bathtub are daunting tasks, which can be best done by a specialist, saving you a lot of money. 2. Mirror frame-up: The renovation experts dress up the builder-grade mirror with a solid frame. This is done at a far lower price than installing a big hanging mirror. A frame is an essential component of bathroom renovation as it hides away any normal wear and tear. 3. Toilet installation: The right bathroom renovation company will look to save you money by saving your toilet. If the ceramic pan and cistern are still modern-looking and are in good condition, they are able to replace only the seat and lid. 4. Using proper budget items: The experts use large pieces of salvage wood as a shower curtain valance. Although it looks like an expensive buy, it actually serves as a focal point and can save a lot of your money. These salvage products are usually found in flea markets, antique stores and auctions. 5. Open shelves: Despite the fact that the bathroom is a small, private space, open shelving can make it seem more spacious. Open shelving lightens up the interior décor of your bathroom, adding style and function. 6. Count on countertops: For a more elegant finish inside your bathroom, the renovation experts can easily install granite countertops. Choosing a slab granite vanity as the focal point of your bathroom’s interior space will look good and keep your renovation project within budget. Choosing the right bathroom renovator who has the right skills and has your best interests at heart, will save you time and money, and bring about all the desired results.

    Aluminium tubing plays a vital role in construction and commercial sectors. Where weight is a critical factor, aluminium is considered the best metal to work with since it provides approximately three times as much volume of metal per pound as steel products. aluminium tubing is also preferred due to its ability to bend and be formed easily. Mostly aluminium tubing suppliers South Africa have an extensive inventory which consists of heat-treated and non-heat-treated alloys for aluminium tubing. Types of Aluminium Tubing: Different types of aluminium tubing can be classified depending upon their Tube Shape, Tube Grade and Tube Size. (Information Credit – http://www.eurosteel.co.za/index.php/aluminum-std-extruded-tubing/index.html) Types of Tube Shapes: 1. Aluminium Rectangular Tube 2. Aluminium Round Tube 3. Aluminium Square Tube Types of Tube Grade: Tubing alloy designations are a system created by the aluminium industry using four-digit numerical designation to identify aluminium alloy. The first digit stands for the major alloy metal. The second number indicates modification in the basic alloy. The last two digits specify particular alloy. For example; 2024 Drawn Aluminium Tubing It is mostly used in aircraft manufacturing due to its high strength and fatigue resistance. 3003 Drawn Aluminium Tubing This is mainly used for heat exchangers and condensers in chemical equipment as well as pressure vessels. 5052 Drawn Aluminium Tubing This type of aluminium tubing consists of Magnesium as the major metal in the alloy hence it provides with good corrosion and weldability characteristics. 6061 Drawn Aluminium Tubing This type of tubing consists of Magnesium and Silicon which gives it extreme welding and brazing. It is preferred in applications where formability is required. 7075 Drawn Aluminium Tubing When zinc is used as a major alloy metal in aluminium tubing, it becomes highly tensile and strong. It is heavily used in aerospace industry. Applications of Aluminium Tubing: Aluminium tubing is used in every commercial sector due to its versatile properties and capabilities. Being lightweight and yet a very strong material, it is ideal for the automotive and aerospace industries and even rail transportation. It is a good conductor of heat because of this property, 1XXX grade aluminium tubing is primarily used in reboilers, engines, solar power and steam generators. Aluminium tubing also has applications in many government-contracted works on highways which sometimes include guardrails as well. Some more areas of application are the following: Marine Accessories Outdoor lawn furniture Electronics Healthcare products Automotive Sports Ventilation, Refrigerators Air conditioning and Heating systems Important Notes: Although aluminium tubing seems the ideal partner for any engineering project, it’s important to figure out whether it is the best option for your needs or not. It is true that aluminium is a combination of light-weight, durability and flexibility but there are some important notes to keep in mind while working with aluminium tubing. Firstly, tubing doesn’t mean piping. Piping offers only fluid transportation, but tubing offers more structural benefits. Aluminium tubing is not cheap although it is light-weight hence you get more volume for the price by total volume.

    Logistics is a vital aspect of our daily life. A significant part of the logistics business contributes towards a country’s economy. The process of transporting goods is quite complicated and requires expertise in the field. It is a step-by-step process. The objective of the clearing agents in Cape Townis primarily to check the insurance of the export and import goods. After collecting the required data about the cargo, they group them into different categories. This determines the export or import fees of the goods. They have to play the role of a coordinator basically. Another task of these clearing agents in Cape Town is to keep the records safely such that a person can refer to them in case of any discrepancy. (Information Credit – http://www.optimainternational.co.za/projects/page/about) Let’s look at the role of the clearing agents in the logistics department elaborately. As said earlier, the clearing agents have to determine the correct tariff of the goods for the customs duties (if applicable). According to the tax rate of a country, the clearing agents must calculate the import duties and taxes/VAT that must be paid by the interested parties. The clearing agent has to confirm that the information received from the consignee and the shipper is authentic before submitting them to the customs clearance department. If they do not adhere to strict norms of the customs department then, both the logistics company and its customers have to face huge penalties. Therefore the role of the clearing agents is of utmost importance in the logistics business. The clearing agent has to frame the Bill of Entry (BOE). This needs to be given to the customs/SARS via electronic data interchange (EDI). Other duties regarding customs clearance that include port health exams, specific cargo requirements in accordance to the laws should be seen to avoid any penalty or delay. The duty of the clearing agent does not end with the release of the customs clearance papers. They also need to look at the various modes of transport. Air: The clearing agents have to check the process through which the cargo is transferred from the warehouse of the logistics company or their clients’ own warehouse to the consignee. After this, the cargo will be shipped via air services. Sea: The clearing agents will have to see that all the requirements are met for transport by sea. Then, the goods would be given in care of the consignee that will assign the goods to ships going to different regions according to the goods’ destination. Road: In case of road freight, the limitations of the vehicle have to be taken into consideration. The clearing agent sees that everything is completed smoothly. LCL (less than container load): The cargo is collected from a specialised licensed warehouse first and then delivered. FCL (full container load): The release notice is handed out depending on the shipping line depot agreement and the transport agreement. The container is then handed over to the consignee. Therefore, the clearing agent in Cape Town plays an essential role when it comes to logistics service.

    Outdoor fire pits have become a trend and landscaping favourite for homeowners, architects and interior designers. Fire pits and fire bowls enhance the looks of outdoor gardens, backyards, patios, balconies, terraces, even indoors at times. They add a unique experience of warmth and comfort while beautifying the overall ambiance of the building. But there are many types of fire pits to choose from, that can be customized to meet the desired looks of the area. (Information Credit: http://www.theoriginalflame.com/fire-pits-fire-bowls/) Lets us view the different kinds of pits available in the present market. 1. Classic Fire Pits Natural Gas Fire Pits Wood Fire pits 2. Fire and Water themed Fire pits 3. DIY Fire pits 4. Gas Fire tables 5. Table Top Fire Pits 6. Fire Urns Wood fire pits are easy to build providing many customisable options at various prices. DIY-savvy homeowners can design and make their own fire pits at a very pocket-friendly budget while rejuvenating the house and the backyard. Those not looking for wood wastes or too much headache regarding a fire pit can opt for two other types: Natural Gas Fire pits or Propane Fire pits. We can summarise the key disparities between these two kinds of fire pits to help you choose from either. 1. Every house has natural gas connection for their homes which can be taken to provide fuel to the natural gas pit while propane pit requires a separate propane tank for fuel feeding. Propane pits provide versatility and mobility over the permanent option of natural gas pit. 2. Propane pits are no-doubt costlier than natural gas pits. When you need the pit for a spur- of -the moment use and not wait for a fuel refill as natural gas is always available, natural gas pit gives an edge over the others. 3. Propane pits provide higher heat energy as the thermal unit count for same amounts of propane is more than that of natural gas. These minute details can help you decide on buying a fire pit variant that best suits your needs and purpose. Here are some other points to consider before planning your own fire pit, adding an extra quality to your house. Costs can be saved by the owner if the hole is dug and stones are bought by the owner through consultations with a technical service provider of a reputed company. It is the personal choice of the owner to choose between the various kinds of pits offered by companies through market research and future sustainability reviews of the unit. Regardless of the style chosen by the owner, it is relevant to consider whether the unit will be permanent, fixed or portable. This will narrow down the choices and help owners suffering from disillusionment while choosing a fire pit. Deciding upon the fuel type to be used for the fire pit too will help the homeowners choose among the varied range of pits available in the market. They also need to look into the matter of how much time they are willing to spare for the caring and cleaning of the unit. A natural surface such as concrete, stone, gravel, brick or slate or a fire-resistant compound should be the option for setting up a safe fire pit as flying of embers and sparks is a very common problem faced while using fire pits. It is also safer to install a fire extinguisher near the fire pit if things get out of hand. There are various options available to set the right mood for a great campfire night, or relaxing under the starry night. Energy efficient low power LED lights can be put around the pit. Metal chairs, or fire resistant furniture around the pit enhances safety measures. It is always recommendable to ‘look before you leap’, i.e., plan, chalk out and research before buying or making a fire pit for your new household makeover.

    After the passage of a certain length of time, it becomes an absolute necessity to make some changes in your kitchen. When it comes to revamping your kitchen, people mostly think of discernible differences that call for huge changes. But in reality, very small and subtle changes can revamp your kitchen entirely with the appropriate choice of kitchen appliances. As there are millions of kitchen appliances available, offered by various companies and brands, choosing the right equipment might seem like a confusing and daunting task. With Wolf appliances, this confusion can be banished, as they are suitable for both traditional and contemporary style kitchens. Wolf is one of the most popular and reputed brands when it comes to kitchen appliances. Only selecting the brand, however, will not solve all your problems, as you still have to select the suitable appliances as for your individual needs. (Information credit: http://www.knsales.com/appliances/wolf) Described below are some of the most popular appliances that people usually select to upgrade to Wolf appliances– 1. Wolf’s range oven: An oven is the first appliance that people usually change during the renovation of their kitchen. Wolf's range ovens are preferred by a significant number of homeowners as they are suited for different styles of cooking. Using these ovens, you would be able to cook, fry, steam, bake, and grill your food and make it reasonably toothsome.  2. Wolf’s ventilation hoods: If the ventilation system of your kitchen is not adequate to eject all of the smoke and odors, this ventilation system is a most suitable option. With these hoods, you would be able to have extremely clean air in your kitchen. 3. Wolf’s built-in refrigerators: The built-in refrigerators of this brand are capable of providing a temperature below the freezing point of water for preserving food.

To revamp your kitchen successfully, you have to consider the following factors for the entire selection and installation procedure of kitchen appliances. A. Checking the power outlet of your kitchen: Wolf appliances are ingeniously made, and their functionality can be impaired with inappropriate usage. To optimize them, you must consider the power outlet of your kitchen. For this, you have to do a thorough research of the products that will function properly with the power outlet in your kitchen. B. Assessing your requirements: Revamping doesn’t mean replacing each of your kitchen appliances with a new and expensive one. Before their installation, you must consider your budget and the overall condition of your kitchen to avoid unnecessary wastage of money. C. Adapting to the latest technologies: You might feel at a loss after purchasing a brand new kitchen appliance because, nowadays, they come with the newest technology and an entirely different working procedure. Hence, you must go through the manuals minutely to make the most of your new kitchen equipment.   Attention to detail and proper choice of kitchen equipment is a must.

    Les vêtements liturgiques ont été en vogue dans le monde chrétien depuis des siècles. Originellement supposés être inspirés de tenues juives, les chercheurs ont plus tard découvert que les vêtements étaient adaptés du monde Gréco-romain. On considère que les vestiges des tuniques de culte en mosaïque que l’on trouve parmi les habits des prêtres maintiennent la nature ésotérique de la foi Catholique. La plupart des vêtements liturgiques sont réservés pour l’utilisation des prêtres dans les services de l’église. (Informations sur la source: Holyart.fr)   Les vêtements liturgiques et leurs origines peuvent être placés dans les 4 ères suivantes.   1. Avant Constantin: Les mentions d’habits liturgiques les plus anciens remontent aux habits journaliers et aux ornements portés à cette époque. Ils étaient souvent assez simples en nature, avec seulement quelques ornements réservés pour la célébration de mystères sacrés.    2. Du 5ème au 9ème siècle: Lorsque la chrétienté a commencé à se former dans le monde, notamment en Europe, 5 éléments essentiels ont été incorporés aux vêtements liturgiques. Tout d’abord, une distinction a été faite entre les habits liturgiques et non liturgiques. L’étole et le pallium ont possiblement été rajoutés après l’influence orientale. La tunique propre au 3ème siècle, ainsi que sa version plus longue, a ensuite été remplacée par une tunique plus courte et une tunique ouverte pour les offices religieux. Ces éléments on petit à petit été incorporés aux vêtements que nous voyons aujourd’hui.    3. Du 9ème au 13ème siècle: Les directives ont commencé à changer et les acolytes n’était plus obligés de porter d’étole, de chasuble ni de manipule. Au 11èmesiècle, la soutane a été introduiteparmi les habits religieux. Etant donné la position dont profitaient les évêques, les vêtements pontificaux ont ensuite été développés.    4. Du 13ème siècle jusqu’à aujourd’hui: Les vêtements liturgiques ont subi quelques modifications suite à l’ajout de broderies compliquées et parures ornementales. Afin de refléter la nature de ceux qui les portaient, les matériaux et l’ornementation utilisés sont devenus plus élitiste.    Code couleur des vêtements L’utilisation de vêtements liturgiques et les couleurs utilisée sont interdépendants. En fonction de l’occasion, les prêtres peuvent porter du blanc/doré, du rouge, du vert, du violer, ainsi que d’autres couleurs moins présentes.   Blanc/Doré : Les vêtements blancs ou dorés sont principalement utilisés pendant les célébrations de pâques et de noël, ainsi que pendant les fêtes de la Vierge Marie, des saints non-martyres et des anges. Les prêtres peuvent aussi utiliser cette couleur pour les messes d’enterrement, ce qui symbolise la résurrection du Christ. Rouge : puisque le rouge symbolise les pouvoirs sacrificiels de Jésus Christ pendant le Dimanche des Rameaux, les habits rouges sont utilisés pour des occasions comme le Vendredi Saint, les jours marquant le martyre des apôtres (sauf St Jean), ainsi que la célébration du Sacrement.   Vert : Les vêtements liturgiques verts sont réservés pour l’utilisation journalière des prêtres, symbolisant l’espoir et la vie.   Violet : Les vêtements violets sont utilisés pendant l’Avant et le Carême et signifient le sacrifice et la préparation.   Chaque couleur à une signification et une importance précise dans le monde catholique, utilisées à travers le monde entier et dans toutes les cultures et pays différents.

    It is becoming increasingly difficult for businesses to tackle wayward debtors. Even large businesses face the trouble of collecting their outstanding monies on time. Thus, today the issue is relevant for businessesof all sorts and sizes. In present times, it is not easy to handle such issues alone. After all how much time will you waste following up with a non-paying customer or how many such customers can you follow up with? There are numerous Credit Management Agencies who are waiting to take responsibility for such non-paying customers. It is a sensible decision to hire the services of such a registered company.   The authentic collection agencies are well versed in debt collection strategies and legalities. Hence, you should hire them to ease your anxiety. They will devise a strategy according to the type of debtor. Some of the non-payers may require more persuasion than the others. Sometimes, sending a letter or email to debtors will make them pay the bills. But, it has been observed in most of the cases that they do not even bother to open the letter. In fact, some debtors have become experts at avoiding payments.   Hence, collecting debts is a test of skill, patience and perseverance. The registered agencies can easily point out this type of debtor by their attitude. Some of them may claim that they had never applied for credit from you, while some may acknowledge the debt. Then, they will give all possible excuses to delay the date of payment.   Here are some suggestions on how to handle difficult situations when collecting debt.   The first step would be to hire a registered company which will collect the debt on your behalf and protect you from fraudsters. For this, you should thoroughly research the company or agency’s website and see how experienced they are. They follow the norms and devise strategies according to the situations. (Information Credit – https://www.accountability.co.za/new_m_quality_services.php)   Although they will act as a layer of security for your company, you should make clear that the payment has to be made on time when your client approach you for credit. Ensure that your client understands the terms and conditions when applying for credit with your company. Before providing credit, do a background check on your potential client. This will significantly reduce the number of errant debtors. Do not depend upon hearsay. You should always be focused when making decisions. Do not listen to gossip or personal stories narrated by the client when they are applying for credit. The debt collecting agencies, as your representation, are always focused and professional when meeting a client. They keep a tight rein on conversations and so should you. These types of agencies often ask questions rapidly to bring out the truth from the wayward debtors. This strategy has a high success rate. You should notify the Credit Bureaus when none of the above methods work. This will result in a bad credit rating for the debtor and they will be listed with the Credit Bureau.   The last resort is litigation. The agency will advise filing a lawsuit against an exceptionally stubborn client when they do not pay heed to any warnings. The proceedings, thus, must be taken seriously and executed properly.

  • La Santa Comunión es un evento extremadamente auspicioso dentro de la fe católica. La Sagrada Comunión, también conocida como la Sagrada Eucaristía, es ofrecida en todas las misas. En sentido general, la Sagrada Comunión conmemora la unión de Dios con sus súbditos. La hostia de la comunión, cuando es consagrada por un católico, se asume que representa el cuerpo y la sangre de Jesucristo. (Crédito de la información: holyart.es)   Al ser un evento de acción de gracias, la Sagrada Comunión nos relata el último sacrificio de Cristo en la cruz hecha en nombre de la humanidad (el sacrificio por todos nosotros). Al recibir la hostia de la Eucaristía durante la primera Comunión, la personaque la recibe asume que se estáiniciando formalmente en la fe católica.   El papel de la Hostia de la comunión La Hostia de la Comunión, que abarca el pan y el vino, representa el cuerpo y la sangre de Cristo. Los cristianos rezan con el pan y el vino porque juntos constituyen lahostia de la comunión para celebrar el Día de Acción de Gracias.

    What people learn during their childhood makes a lasting impression in their minds and creates a platform for their future education. This is why it is important to ensure that a child retains the knowledge gained in childhood. To this end, the traditional method of teaching children orally,or even by using a blackboard, is not always the most effective way to grab and hold someone’s attention.   The main objective of educational videos for kids is to provide them stimulus that immediately attracts and holds their interest so they can enjoy the process of learning enough to assimilate the knowledge instead of having to memorize it mechanically. According to child experts, visual learning andvisualizingstudy materials goes a long way in developing cognitive ability and increasing the retention rate.   Many educational institutions around the world these days use interesting educational videos for preschool students. Some of the advantages that videos provide in learning facilitation are discussed below:   1. Improving cognitive thinking and problem solving skills: The use of moving images along withsound creates a direct interaction between the subject matter and the children. As a result, students can relate better to the material, and interpret the key concepts on their own. This capacity to think independently enhances their cognitive abilities and, consequently, their problem solving skills.   2. Flexibility:In traditional teaching methods, children sometimes face difficulties in coping with the teacher’s speed. Videos are much more flexible in that aspect, as you can pause, re-watch, and fast-forward them as per requirement. Also, videos provide the opportunity forchild-material engagement as the children can ask about questions about the video.   3. Developing listening and observation skills: Videos are all about listening and observing. So using them as a tool for education automatically increases the power of observation alongside the listening skills of the children. Improved listening skills lead to better communication skills. The students also become aware of the appropriate pronunciation of different words, which they cannot do so easily from reading alone.   4. Taking advantage of supporting tools: Educational videos can often be used in conjunction with various supporting tools like work sheets, exercises, or even homework. This can apply to math, English, science, and most other subject areas.  In the case of history, a video clip of a renowned historical character or the picture of an ancient battlefield along with the corresponding dates help children develop their memory and eventually, to retain important facts.   5. Step by step demonstration: Educational videos usually cover the subject matter in fragments rather than in large chunks, so that the child does not have to assimilate everything all at once. This step by step demo is extremely helpful in promoting understanding by breaking the matter down into logical parts.   Videos provide an enhanced learning experience for the child, and judging from how fast technology is evolving, educational videos have definitelybecome an integral part of the learning process.

    Many people join piano groups and classes after their 50s. Maybe they had the desire to learn piano, but never had the right opportunities in past. Now, after retirement, they have the chance of fulfilling their desires. Nowadays, doctors also recommend piano lessons for adults. They prescribe them when the patients have concentration issues and neurological problems.   It is never too late to start taking piano lessons. The saying, if someone did not learn to play piano as a child then it is too late to learn, is just a false belief. Adults who learn piano attend the classes of their own volition. There is no pressure from home or parents as is the case with some children. (Information Credit - http://www.europeanpianoacademy.com.au)   Some of the benefits of taking piano lessons:   Better Cognition Abilities Adults can grasp concepts more easily than children due to their level of maturity. Thus, grownups can appreciate and analyse musical concepts far better than children. It is important to understand and like the  sense of the piece of music they are playing and not have to learn it by automatic repetition derived of any feelings or with displeasure of any sort.   Cognitive and Physical Benefits Learning to play the piano can improve a person’s cognitive skills. Research has shown that learning music changes the part of the brain which controls memory, hearing and hand movements for the better. Neuroscientists say that musical training boosts communication between brain regions and increases brain volume. A recent study has shown that after six months of playing the piano, adults aged between 60 and 85 have demonstrated positive gains in terms of better memory, verbal fluency, planning, and cognitive ability. All in all, playing piano is a complex process that enhances and improves many different areas if our minds and bodies.   Emotional and Psychological Benefits Apart from the physical benefits, taking up piano lessons can improve a person’s mood. Everyone knows that music affects the emotional state. Similarly, playing musical pieces on piano has psychological benefits. It is also a proven method to relieve stress. Playing piano helps in lifting the mood of someone distressed. It thus has great therapeutic abilities. Besides, learning to play piano simultaneously teaches you to gain mastery over your emotions, in the sense that you learn to express, suppress or control your own emotions through music. As music, especially classical European music, enhances your sensitivity and speaks to your psyche directly.   Perseverance Learning piano requires patience and perseverance. It takes time to work out the difficult sections of a piece of music. Therefore, this is a good exercise for those who are impatient. Taking piano lessons will help a person in improving his or her organisational skills and time management. To become a skilled pianist a student would need to work around office hours and develop a consistent and regular practising schedule. Then again practice hours should not be compromised if a consistent progress is expected.   Curiosity Satisfaction Those who are curious about the cultural history and journey of music can satisfy their curiosity by spending some time in piano classes. Adults would come to know more about classical piano music, contemporary piano, and everything in between.   Apart from all the medical benefits, playing piano is a great source of pleasure. An adult has the maturity to enjoy the aesthetics of harmony and subtle feelings that every masterpiece possesses. It is also fun to play music if you enjoy it. The body and the soul engage and work together to create a harmonious and emotional performance.

    Kadzidło było cenionym towarem od czasów starożytnych. Otrzymanie daru kadzidła było wielkim zaszczytem. Kościół katolicki niesie ze sobą repertuar elementów konotacyjnych, takich jak kadzidło, świece i oleje. Mówi się, że kadzidło zostało wprowadzone do kościołów katolickich przez wschodnią część kościoła. Ten towar jest nadal używany w obchodach liturgicznych. [Informacje dzięki: http://holyart.pl/]   Proces Cały proces palenia kadzidła ma jego eteryczny dotyk. Jasne ziarna kadzidła są po raz pierwszy umieszczone na czerwonym gorącym węglu. Pachnący dym przechodzi przez cały kościół, gdy kadzielnica jest zwinięta. Procedura jest wyrazem bezwarunkowej miłości do Jezusa Chrystusa, Matki Marii i świętych i aniołów, która przekracza wszelkie formy materialne.   Cel użycia kadzidła w kościele Stary Testament mówi, że Bóg nakazał ludziom spalanie kadzidła. Ten sakramentalny towar służy do pobłogosławienia, uświęcenia lub czci świętych. Dym powstały w wyniku spalania kadzidła ma spokojny ezoteryczny efekt. Czciciele czują obecność ukochanego Pana wśród nich.   Msza św. Kadzidło jest również używane podczas Mszy. Zapach i wizualny wizerunek dymu wzmacnia transcendentalny aspekt Mszy (łączącej Niebo i Ziemię). To tak, jakby wierzący osiągnęli inną płaszczyznę. Unoszący się dym symbolizuje oddanie i wiarę wszystkich chrześcijan, a zapach oznacza cnotę chrześcijańską.   Błogosławieństwa i uwielbienie Po wprowadzeniu kadzidła do kadzielnicy, kapłan błogosławi je znakiem krzyża. Podczas tego błogosławieństwa oferowana jest milcząca modlitwa. Kadzielnica trzęsie się trzykrotnie, aby okadzić Najświętszy Sakrament, Święty Krzyż, krzyż w ołtarzu, obrazy Pana, Księgę Ewangelii, świecę paschalną, kapłana i zgromadzenie. Kadzielnica jest dwukrotnie obrócona, aby okadzić relikwie i obrazy świętych. Odbywa się to na początku uroczystości, na początku której następuje zapalenie kadzidła przy ołtarzu.   Ofiara całopalna Od jego początków kadzidło również oznacza "ofiarę całopalną" - ofiarę natury. Według Starego Testamentu, spalenie czegoś oznaczało ofiarowanie tego Bogu.   Modlitwa Kadzidło jest również symbolem modlitwy. Często uważa się, że jest najczystszą formą modlitwy, ponieważ nie ma żadnych żądań ani celów   Oczyszczenie Uważa się również, że dym kadzidła działa jako oczyszczacz. Przed przyjęciem Komunii Świętej, wierni muszą oczyścić dłonie dymem. Trzymają dłonie tuż nad miską kadzidła. Naczynia liturgiczne takie jak kielich, patena i gwiazda są również oczyszczane podczas obchodów maronitów Kościoła Katolickiego. Są one odwrócone nad płonącym kadzidłem, tak że pokryte są wonnym dymem.   Kadzidło jest również używane w uroczystych procesjach, a także do błogosławieństwa nowych ołtarzy, dzwonów kościelnych i naczyń świętych. Krzyżmo i inne święte oleje są konsekrowane dymem kadzidła.

    During the process of recruitment, candidate talent testing is a common feature. Having been initiated more than fifty years ago, and used extensively by the majority of enterprises worldwide.  Competition is everywhere; between enterprises for market share, as well as potential candidates for the increasing number of openings. Any potential candidates are thus required to go through a series of skill assessments and ability tests to be absolutely sure that the employer gets the required talent with relevant qualifications. In this article, we will discuss the advantages of conducting candidate talent testing before presenting candidates with the final offer of a job. (Information credit: Global Talent Mine)   1. Tests are objective:  The traditional procedures of hiring employees based on their CVs and personal interactions with interviewers cannot effectively predict on-the-job performance.  Unstructured interviews, mass résumé screenings and pre-interview calls are not enough to guarantee the level of a candidate.  This is due to the subjective nature of this methodology rather than a directly job oriented approach. Candidate testing works differently, providing the management with a clearer, more objective, conclusion.  A well designed candidate talent testing procedure will leave no stones unturned, and is thus, considered to be the most reliable method of hiring.    2. They are standardized: Unlike traditional methods of screening calls and unstructured interviews, candidate testing offers a fairer and less subjective assessment of talent, eliminating the absence of a consensus on how to rate candidates. Standardized talent testing are centrally administered, laying emphasis on strictly job related criteria.    3. Saves Time:  One-on-one job interviews are a great way to perform an initial assessment, but that’s about all. Assessing the many traits of a potential employee can take a substantial amount of time and effort from both parties. Candidate talent testing provides the best way to assess a candidate’s knowledge.  Besides skills like typing speed, written communication, or problem solving skills, certain behavioural traits can also be assessed.     4. Quantifiable insight:  Another problem with cumbersome interview procedures is the lack of quantifiable insight into the applications.  Structured tests can provide the management with a tangible value to make important hiring decisions.  It eliminates employer bias, wrong conclusions, or simply having to work with instinct, and provides a much more streamlined and reliable assessment methodology.     5. Work intensive assessment: Candidate talent testing can easily examine the specific job related traits of a candidate.   There are many types of such tests like personality tests, focusing skills, as well as labour intensive tests like writing speed and solving complex problems.  The employer can choose to focus on the desired test for selecting the candidates with the job-specific skills among the many tests available. The tests are designed in such a way as to focus solely on the job requirements at hand.   A well designed, standardized talent testing program can add objectivity to a recruiting process.  As the burden on human resources personnel begins to increase, more and more employers are using this screening process to their advantage.

    Technology and communication have developed and advanced exponentially in the past decade, opening-up new avenues of achieving efficient communication between individuals and businesses. Long gone are the days where communication options were restricted to landline phones. Advancements in technology have made more efficient and portable communication devices available, and more and more service providers are using wireless systems and data packages to their advantage. (Information credit: http://www.oxbowsa.co.za/xerox-cape-town/) The importance of an effective and responsive communication system to a business cannot be overstressed. As well as offering convenience, installation, maintenance and organisations, these communications systems ensure that the workflow is never interrupted. They also become the most cost effective option, lowering phone bills while raising productivity.   Qualities of a Good Telecommunications System Picking the right communication system is crucial for the success of any business, allowing seamless connectivity to aid business activities. The qualities of the ideal telecommunications system are listed below:   1. Reliable:  The ideal telecommunications service will have the necessary resources to identify any problem and provide a solution. They should have a competent customer service team for effective troubleshooting.   2. Customized services: As no two businesses are identical, their individual requirements may vary as well. A good service provider will have customised solutions for each kind of business. For example, a good service provider will always have plans that cater to a big corporate setting as well as a small business like a hotel or nursing home.   3. SLA: SLA’s or service level agreements should be made with the service provider after installation. Any malfunction that results in a loss of communication can affect the business both externally and internally.  Customers are unable to get through to the business and the staff cannot function properly if the internal connection is down. Thus SLA’s ensure that a reasonable turnaround time is maintained, which should not affect the business’s productivity, revenue and profit.   4. Integrated devices: Many service providers use different providers for each individual product or service. The problem occurs if they are not properly compatible or integrated with each other in a centralised system. By choosing a competent service provider, a suitable combination of compatible devices is delivered. This saves the management a lot of time and energy, not to mention a substantial amount of money.   In conclusion, it can be said that the effectiveness of a communications platform depends on the level of service provided. With the emergence of so many telecommunications service providers, it can be a confusing task to select the right service. The best way to do this is to define the business’s telecomm requirements and act accordingly. Some businesses might require self-hosting VoIP systems, while others may need a simple VoIP system. No matter what decision has been taken though, it should always be ensured that a safe, reliable and consistent service provider is chosen. After all, responsive communication with clients and internal members are the prerequisites of a successful business.

    Polyurethane foam is an extremely soft and lightweight material which is used across industries for various purposes. Most notably, polyurethane foam is used in the manufacture of backrests in various types of furniture, including office chairs and stacker chairs.  Despite its softness, it has a remarkably durable quality that makes it stand out. Backrests built by using this foam have more advantages when compared to other types of furniture material. (Information credit: Furniture Depot)   1.

Lightweight and adjustable: Because of the unique qualities of polyurethane foam, the material is highly flexible and adjustable. It’s also lightweight, making it suitable for a variety of users. Having a varied degree of flexibility also protects the material from daily wear and tear.   4. Thermal insulation: Although not a direct point of contention, polyurethane has high thermal retention capabilities, meaning it can retain heat for a longer period of time. This is extremely useful for use in cold climates, where materials like stainless steel or wrought iron often fail.   5. Ergonomics: One of the prime functions of using polyurethane foam is the amount of comfort they provide. It’s a soft and flexible material that provides a comfortable yet strong back support.

    Stainless steel (also known as inox or inox steel) can be defined as an alloy of steel containing a significant percentage (10.5) of chromium content. Besides iron and chromium, stainless steel also consists of molybdenum, nickel, and carbon. Among them, nickel is capable of acting as a catalyst in a certain crystalline structure known as austenite. (Information credit: Eurosteel)   Stainless steel exhibits many properties such as – a) Anti oxidation: The chromium content of stainless steel acts as a galvanising agent and provides a passive layer that protects this material from getting oxidised in air. The oxidation of iron in air and water is popularly known as rusting. The amount of chromium might vary in this alloy from 13% to 26% according to the nature of the environment. If the air is damp, more chromium content will be required to prevent rusting.   b) Non-reactivity against acid, base, and alkali: Stainless steel usually doesn’t undergo chemical reaction with acids and alkaline substances depending upon the temperature. For example, at room temperature, type 904 steel doesn’t even react with concentrated sulphuric acid whereas type 430 is non-reactive with nitric acid. In the case of bases and alkalis, stainless steel materials of the300 series are impervious to alkalis like sodium hydroxide, ammonium hydroxide and sodium hypochlorite.   Due to these properties, stainless steel is used in numerous fields and to manufacture myriads of products such as pipes, sheets, plates, coils, valves, flanges, ornamental tubing, decorative finish, BSP fittings and many more.    Products made of stainless steel come with many advantageous features. These features are discussed below:   1. Free from corrosion: Stainless steel is impervious to oxidation that prevents rusting and consequently prevents corrosion. It is also non-reactive to various acids and alkaline substances. So stainless products are unlikely to be spoiled even if it comes in contact with acids. All varieties of stainless steel are also water resistant.   2. Ductile nature: Stainless steel has a high elasticity quotient that makes it one of the most ductile metals in the world. This nature allows designingof products of any possible shape and size from long pipes to small flanges. This property also makes the installation of such products much easier.   3. Temperature resistant: Almost all varieties of stainless steel are resistant to temperature. They can withstand significantly higher temperature than room temperature. Because of this and corrosion resistance, all products made of this substance are extremely durable.   4. Economic advantage: This type of steel is a widely manufactured substance that makes its cost significantly low. Furthermore, the durability and corrosion resistance of this type of steel greatly lowers its maintenance cost. The installation cost of stainless steel products, like pipes, is also very low because they are easy to install and require less manpower.   5. Aesthetic qualities: Stainless steel finishes are aesthetically pleasing and the products made of it can blend themselves in with modern architectural constructions and designs.   These are the main reasons behind the huge popularity of various stainless steel objects across the globe.

    Formal watches are regarded as the single most important accessory a man can own. It serves as an ultimate style statement and is reflective off the personality of the wearer. However, most people have a tough time selecting a men’s watch. The final choice is often not suitable for work or wearing on a formal occasion.  (Information credit: Lars Larsen)   Below is a list of factors to guide you away from common pitfalls in selecting watches while helping you achieving that sophisticated look. Read on.   1. Considering your lifestyle: When selecting a watch for dressier occasions, you should go for something which is classy in appearance and its durability is assured. Mechanical or sports watches may have additional features like a compass, digital display or night vision features, but these are not suitable when you need to look quietly elegant at a formal celebration. Thus, formal watches demand more of a traditional appearance and more basic functionality rather than a high-functioning but chunky gizmo.   2. The face of the watch: One of the physical aspects to keep in mind is the size of the dial of the watch in relation to the wrist on which it’s worn. Selecting a watch in relation to one’s wrist will get you the right sort of watch that does not look sloppy, too small or too large and cumbersome. Men with a larger build than average might find a standard watch face too small and disproportionate. Many modern designs have been introduced which have a larger than standard watch face to fit the requirements of bigger men.   3. Water resistance: Most sports watches come with water resistant qualities with watches being fit for underwater use for prolonged periods. This is, however, not the case with most formal watches. Purchasing a water resistant watch can be really useful if you are caught in the rain, or if you accidently get wet. As most formal watches come with intricate designs and an expensive finish, it is important for it to possess a certain level of water resistance to prevent structural damage.   4. The Colour of the Dial and the Band: When it comes to colour, it has a great bearing on the appearance of any accessory and watches are no exception. Normally, men’s formal watches do not have loud or flashy colours but there has been a recent trend of getting more brightly coloured dials and straps. Too much brightness, however, can destroy a watch quiet elegance, and make it look cheaper than it is. A simple black or deep blue is recommended for straps.   5. A Reputed Brand: Selecting a watch from a reputable brand always helps in completing a formal look with a touch of class. A brand that is old and operating for a long time can almost always guarantee literally timeless quality and functionality. All warranty and repair services are also handled by the company.   6. The Strap: The strap or band of a formal men’s watch is sometimes ignored. However, the look and feel of the strap has a direct impact on the aesthetics of a watch. Leather straps are generally chosen for men’s formal watches, with brown and black being the preferred colours. Some of these watches also have straps which are mounted on a bracelet-like structure and seamlessly blends with the rest of the watch.   The selection procedure of a men’s watch boils down to the preferences and tastes of the person wearing it. There are many factors to consider with styles and price points being the major variables. For achieving a classic and timeless look, the subtlety and elegance of a modern formal watch is something worth taking some time over.

    The type and nature of glass windows used by commercial institutions have dramatically changed over the years. They are now equipped to resist extreme weather conditions, provide thermal insulation, sound proofing and security. Double glazing refers to a process whereby windows are specially treated to allow much less heat loss through a particular window. Glazing solutions are generally cost effective. However, you have to be aware of the factors to be considered before choosing a particular type of glazing service. (Information credit: Randburg Glass)   Here are some of the factors given below:   Reputation of company: As is the case in most industries, a company with a good reputation and years of experience will always provide satisfactory goods to customers.  Hence choosing such a company will decrease the risk of buying sub-standard materials and future material failure.   Value for money: Cost is always an important factor while choosing a service provider. However, customers have to choose the right combination of low cost and good quality so as to reap the full benefits of the service. Lower prices may be enticing, but can result in sub-par services that will not match the customer’s needs.   Accreditations: A good glazing service provider will always be registered with a regulatory body for maintaining the industry standards for replacing windows. A company with good accreditations has products that are quality checked and suitable for use. They keep the interests of their customers in mind.   Check their portfolio:  Before enlisting the services of a glazing company, checking their portfolio is a must. A portfolio will contain examples of completed projects, so that the customer can better understand the level of expertise of a particular service provider.   After Sales service: A good glazier will always provide customers with a responsive customer support team. Only a company that offers maintenance or repair services both within and after the warranty period should be selected.   These factors should all be considered while selecting the most suitable glazing service provider according to the client’s needs. A good glazing service will ensure that customers receive the best product possible and do not experience frequent maintenance issues. A good glazing service provides benefits like thermal insulation, security, sound-proofing as well as UV light protection. The glazing company should be able to give you a combination of a good experience working with them, expertise and quality to ensure each and every customer is satisfied. They consult thoroughly during the entire process and ensure that the client’s needs and preferences are taken care of. Additionally, make sure that the purchased glass matches the existing glass in colour and texture. The customer should be informed about the durability of the glass. If it wears out or breaks, it should be easily replaceable.

    These days, different types of inflatable boats are available ranging from canoes and kayaks for exercise, inflatable boats for water skiing and fishingto a floating ‘island’ with shaded areas where you can relax.If you want your boat to last for a longer period of time, then make sure you take proper care of it and follow a strict maintenance routine. If you do not take proper care, then chances are that the material will develop weakness and get punctured easily, which in turn will make the boat unsafe for use. Here are some maintenance tips for inflatable boats shared. Information credit: http://makoafrica.com/)   1. Clean the boat Proper cleaning is the first step to maintenance. Straight from day one, follow a cleaning routine. In this case, remember that not all cleaning products are good for your boat, as they can damage the material of your inflatable boat. If the cleaning agents you use contain ingredients such as acetone, ammonia, bleach and MEK, and have a pH greater than 11.5 then you will end up weakening the material and reducing its lifespan. The same will be the effect if you use abrasive steel wool or scrub pads for cleaning. Use products that are especially made for cleaning inflatable boats. Also, it is important that you rinse your boat thoroughly after every use.   2. Store the boat with care When you are not using the inflated boat, the best thing to do is store it partially inflated. If your boat is completed deflated, then the chances of damage will increase. In case you have limited space and cannot keep the boat partially inflated, then what you have to do is to ensure that it’s completely clean and dry. Then, following the instructions, you have to roll it and store in the bag that you got with it. Make sure not to fold the boat while storing, as the folds can cause serious long-term damage to the material.   3. Keep away from sharp objects Sharp objects are the most obvious threat to inflatable boats. If you leave objects such as oars, knives, ropes and fish hooks to rub against the material of the boat, then it can cause abrasion and eventually give way. Of course, it is quite hard to keep boats away from sharp objects, as at thedock there are jutting wood or barnacles and at beaches there are shells and rocks that can tear the material of the boat. So you have to be extra careful to lessen the risk to the boat.   4. Don’t over-inflate If you over-inflate your boat, it will cause a lot of damage. Inflate in a way that the boat hasstill a little to give. If your boat is over-inflated, it can explode if struck.   With these care and maintenance tips in mind, your inflatable boat can have a lifespan of 20 to 30 years.

    Who does not want to live in a safe and happy environment? The bitter truth, however, is that accidents occur every day, so the world is not completely safe. All you can do is to take precautions in order to avoid accidents. In workplaces where there are many employees working together, the risk of accidents is huge. As you cannot avoid accidents altogether, you can take preventive measures to stop the accident from being a fatal one. Employees do not have proper knowledge of how to handle emergency situations. And this is where first aid training for the workplace becomes important. If the employees are trained, they will be able to handle emergency situations in a far more capable way, especially in workplaces such as factories and construction sites. (Information credit: SGK Consulting)   In order to save lives, it is important to provide first aid. In this article, some benefits of first aid training are discussed in detail.   1. Handle emergency situations like a pro There may be emergency situations where you need to act fast and where you cannot really wait for medical assistance to arrive. If the human brain does not receive oxygen for six minutes, chances are that it will expire. Employees will be able to handle situations such as a heart attack or any other emergency, if they are given first aid training. First aid can be life saving in situations like these.   2. Increases confidence among employees If employees get proper first aid training, they will be confident in taking the right actions in case of an emergency. They will be equipped with the right skills as well as sufficient knowledge from first aid training that helps them to act appropriately in emergency situations. The morale of the employees gets a boost.   3. Takes the right first aid measures You may come across many cases where you can see that a co-worker of the victim of the accident tries to help them. But if they don’t know what exactly to do, then it can be more damaging to the victim than it is useful. If the employees are provided the right first aid training, they will know how to help a co-worker in emergency situations. Without doing any further damage to the existing situation, they will be able to use the right methods. The person in need will get fast as well as effective treatment.   4. Awareness When the employees are provided first aid training, their sensitivity and awareness is raised. This, in turn, helps them in staying alert. The safety of the employees, thus, improves. The more they become aware of the possible injuries and accidents, the more they can take quick preventive measures.   Keeping first aid kits and conducting first aid training in the workplace makes it a much safer work environment for employees. According to workplace safety regulations, workplaces should adhere to a certain first aid standard.

    The best way to scan large documents is to use a large format scanner. The large format scanner is one of the best solutions if you are planning to generate a digital archive.  Some large format architectural printers have built-in scanning facilities. However, you can invest in a large format scanner to make excellent scans. Whether your documents are torn, have thick foamy boards, or have faded colors, no matter how difficult your project is, scanning with a large format scanner ensures accurate and high quality images.   Scanning a standard document is quite easy; the document feeder or the flatbed handle do not create many problems. However, scanning large documents could create a lot of hassles. Whether you want to print blueprints, long certificates, architectural drawings, or banners, a large format scanner is the one stop solution for all your scanning issues. (Information credit: ByColortrac.com)   If you have never used a large format scanner before, here are some simple steps that will ensure a smooth scanning process.   1. Determine the Layout of Your Documents Before getting into the details of how to scan large documents, you must find out about the layout of your documents. Talking about scanning, a large document can mean several things: it can mean a document with large volumes of pages or simply an oversized document. Large documents may include architectural designs, exceptionally wide banners, long certificates and images requiring careful handling.  Irrespective of the type of documents, you must be thoroughly informed about their specifications.   2. Prepare the Documents Before sending your documents over for scanning, you must inspect them.  If there are any torn edges or paper folds, they might create problems while scanning.  Additionally, check if your document is clean or not.  Neat documents are the key to good scanning.   4. Load the Pages into the Feeder Once you have organized your documents into a neat pile, load them into the feeder. Large format scanners mostly involve feed rolls. This is why you should align the edges of your documents before placing them on the feeder. Once you have finished preparing the feeder, there is really nothing much left for you to do.   4. Calibrate Your Scanner Cleaning and calibration are important for a scanner’s optimal performance. Calibration will enhance the accuracy of your scanning. Calibrating your scanner to your monitor is very similar to calibrating your monitor to your printer. You can choose a good program, for instance, Adobe Photoshop, to do your calibration. Some people also buy third-party calibration programs that are readily available in the market. Regardless of what you are using, the process involves these following steps:   Generate a color reference sheet Scan this color reference sheet Make sure you clean up the scanned copy by removing dust and scratches. Analyze your scan either by making visual adjustments or allowing the profiling software to make adjustments.   5. Press Scan Once you have completed all the above steps successfully, you are all set for scanning. Check your set up and hit the scan option. Make sure that you don’t forget to save the file in the appropriate format — pdf, jpg or tiff.   If you have a sizeable scanning project to complete, switch to a large format scanner to get excellent scans. For large document scanning in fields such as construction, architecture, engineering and manufacturing, a large format scanner is extremely helpful. Talking about technicality, large format scanners have high cameras that set them apart from other forms of scanners. The excellent technology of large format scanner ensures hundred percent accuracy of the image.

    It is really important to boost the productivity at the workplace and maintain high levels of it. And when it comes to boosting productivity, nothing can beat a good cup of coffee. Employees need to stay active and energetic the whole time. A cup of coffee can act as an energiser. This is the reason that almost every big office or organisation has a coffee vending machine. Coffee keeps employees alert, and helps the business achieve high productivity.   Nowadays, most businesses prefer to install a fully automated coffee vending machine in their offices to make their employees more active and productive. An automatic coffee vending machine dispenses coffee in paper cups. There are different types of coffee vending machines which offer different flavours of coffee, from espresso to cappuccino. There are a number of reasons behind choosing a fully automated coffee vending machine. Just a few of them are discussed below. (Information courtesy: The Coffee Co)   1. Minimises idle time: If there is no coffee vending machine in your office, employees have to go somewhere else to buy refreshments. This increases the idle time of employees. So by installing a coffee vending machine, you can save the time that employees take getting refreshing beverages from elsewhere. Therefore, actual working and productive hours increase.   2. Office rooms are more tidy and clean: Since the machines vend the beverage into cups, there is no chance of spilling. In case of conventional coffee making processes, employees spill coffee and other stuff while mixing the coffee. Automated coffee vending machines also minimise the requirement for regular cleanups.   3. You don't have to pay extra for catering services: There are a number of offices that hire catering services that deliver coffee to employees at offices. And for providing this service, they charge a hefty amount of money, which is a complete waste for employers. Instead, they should install a fully automated coffee vending machine to get good quality coffee in a cost effective way.   4. Keeps employees safe from any accident: A fully automated coffee vending machine saves people from any accidents. In the case of traditional coffee machines like boilers, employees face accidents like burning, while mixing coffee themselves. An automatic machine vends coffee directly into cups and that minimises the risk of accidents.   5. Cost-effective A fully automated coffee vending machine is not only profitable but also a cost effective way to brew coffee. Be it cappuccino or espresso, you can get everything in a cost-effective way with the help of an automatic coffee vending machine.   There is no denying the fact that coffee is an important energy drink and it is necessary for all employees. But every employee does not require coffee at the same time. So, if you want to keep your employees active the whole day, the best option for you is to install a fully automated coffee vending machine.
