    Quick tips for carpets and rugs

     

    Copyright 2006 Melissa Galt Carpet The lowest maintenance and most durable carpet is level loop (often called “Berber”). The loop construction provides 4x the surface of wear, hence its’ durability. It doesn’t show tracking at all and now comes in patterns and colors for every taste. Keep your carpet neutral and consistent throughout for greatest flexibility and resale. Use color in rugs; they are personal and move with you, while carpet doesn’t High twist cut pile, also known as frieze, is considered trackless-- that is it doesn’t show vacuum and foot prints as easily as a regular cut pile. Qualities vary. Velvet plush cut pile, while certainly the softest underfoot, shows every mark, foot print, pet paw print, and vacuum track. It is very formal in nature and maintenance intensive. Believe it or not shag carpet is back! Fun in a contemporary environment, but watch the depth, it isn’t rakeable anymore and can still swallow pet turtles. Rugs Rugs are appropriate for every room and over wall to wall, not just hardwood. They will anchor a furniture grouping and add interest and softness. They are truly artwork for the floor. For size, the rule of thumb is that it should have all your furniture on it (such as a 9x12 in a family room) or all your furniture off it, (such as a 6x9 in the same room) the obvious exception being a coffee table or ottoman. Try to avoid the furniture resting half on/half off. Most dining rooms require at least an 8x10 rug to avoid the chairs “falling off.” Smaller rugs make great accents, and you aren’t paying to cover them up with furniture! Be careful though, substituting a 4x6 for a 6x9 will leave you looking like you have a postage stamp on the floor. Rugs can also make a significant impact on acoustics in rooms with lots of windows and vaulted ceilings. They can even be changed seasonally for a mood shift! Runners Runners are an important consideration not just for aesthetics but for safety and acoustics value. On stairs noise is often amplified, and a runner will muffle the traffic sounds. In hallways, runners serve to breakup a tunnel like effect with pattern and warmth. Rug Pads Be sure to buy the proper pad for your rugs. Pads extend the life of the rug, as well as protecting the floor beneath it. For hardwood and tile floors you’ll want a superloc pad which has a rubberized backing on one side, and a thick jute/felt pad on the other. Do not use the waffle type pads, they can leave marks requiring refinishing on hardwood, and the superloc will even out any tile variance. For vinyl floors, a waffle pad or other slim line pad is acceptable. On carpet a miracle hold pad or a sticky back pad is recommended. This pad has adhesive on both sides, one to adhere to the carpet, the other to stick to the rug, preventing the age old challenge of creep in the rug, and giving an extra layer of protective backing to prevent any bleed through of colors from rug to carpet. Stain Guard Most reputable rug dealers will offer a stain guarding program. Some offer it free of charge with every purchase. Forcefield is the name brand of choice. It doesn’t actually prevent stains, no stain guard does, it does give you considerable extra time to clean up, as it provides a protective shield on the surface forcing any spillage to bead up rather than be absorbed.

         
    Quotations for fathers day

     

    So many people over the years have had a lot to say about fathers! Here are some quotes about fathers to think about this Father’s Day: “It is a wise father who knows his own child.” – William Shakespeare “By the time a man realizes that maybe his father was right, he usually has a son who thinks he’s wrong.” – Charles Wadsworth “To be a successful father, there’s one absolute rule: when you have a kid, don’t look at it for the first two years.” – Ernest Hemingway “If the new American father feels bewildered and even defeated, let him take comfort from the fact that whatever he does in any fathering situation has a fifty percent chance of being right.” – Bill Cosby “Sometimes the poorest man leaves his children the richest inheritance.” – Ruth E. Renkel “It doesn’t matter who my father was; it matters who I remember he was.” – Anne Sexton “The most important thing that a father can do for his children is to love their mother.” – Theodore M. Hesburgh “My father didn’t tell me how to live; he lived, and let me watch him do it.” – Clarence B. Kelland “Love and fear. Everything the father of a family says must inspire one or the other.” – Joseph Joubert “Noble fathers have noble children.” – Euripides “When I was a boy of fourteen, my father was so ignorant I could hardly stand to have the old man around. But when I got to be twenty-one, I was astonished at how much he had learned in seven years.” – Mark Twain “A man never stands as tall as when he kneels to help a child.” – Knights of Pythagoras The best quotes for the Father’s Day Holiday: “It is easier for a father to have children than for children to have a real father.” – Pope John XXIII “Blessed indeed is the man who hears many gentle voices call him father!” – Lydia M. Child “It is much easier to become a father than to be one.” – Kent Nerburn “The greatest gift I ever had came from God, and I call him Dad!” – Anonymous “One night a father overheard his son pray: Dear God, make me the kind of man my Daddy is. Later that night, the father prayed, Dear God, make me the kind of man my son wants me to be.” – Anonymous

         
    Raised air beds used more often for a good night s sleep

     

    Traditional air beds were built to sleep low which left many feeling as if they were sleeping on the floor. Modern air beds are now being built to sleep higher off the ground and are referred to as a "raised air bed." These are favored most amongst consumers and continue to be big sellers. Unlike air beds of the past, these modern raised air beds create a much more comfortable nights sleep. You are further away from the floor which keeps you warmer, as the closer your are to the floor, the colder you will become as well. The raised air bed also allows you to enter and exit them much more easily. This is great for people who deal with lower back issues. Rising up or lying down on a low mattress can wreak havoc on someone with back pain. Your guests will be grateful to not have to deal with the discomfort of the traditional "low to the ground" air bed. Air beds are not just for spare beds anymore. Many people use them as their permanent mattress in their master bedrooms. With updated features such as firmness control settings, many individuals opt for an air mattress rather than a regular mattress. This is what makes a raised air bed even more appealing as you can maintain the height of a box spring/mattress combo. With the old air mattresses of the past, there isn't as much of a concern about losing air pressure throughout the night. Since raised air beds are much larger, losing a small amount of air is not noticeable. Plus modern air beds have been improved where air loss is hardly an issue anymore. You may be very surprised by the comfort and features available with modern air beds. Many people find themselves purchasing more than one for their homes. Raised air beds are often replaced as a main bed in many homes due to the firmness control features. You can provide guests a comfortable nights sleep without the cost of a new bed set.

         
    Raising bilingual children the first 5 steps to success

     

    : When I was growing up, the only way to raise a true ‘world denizen’ was at an exorbitantly priced Swiss boarding school. Luckily, such elitism has been thrown out the window, and now parents raise bilingual and multicultural children themselves. The children grow up just as world-savvy and sophisticated -- and actually know their own parents! Still for the do-it-yourselfer, a few tips can smooth the way. The most common question people ask me is "How do I raise a bilingual child the best way?" "Easy, just talk to them!" is my tongue-in-cheek response. It seems almost impossible to imagine the baby transforming into a communicating creature, let alone one conversant in several languages. Although the miraculous progress from cooing to speech occurs in exactly the same fashion whether it transpires in one or in several languages, the practicalities are different. Here are the first steps to raising your very own polyglot tot. 1. Family agreement: Even though agreement within the family is perhaps the most essential ingredient, I am sometimes asked, “What do I do if my partner doesn’t want me speaking to our child in a language he doesn’t understand?" An insecure spouse may fear being excluded from ‘the secret language’ between the other parent and the child. Discuss and compromise. It is very important that couples find some solution that is acceptable to both parents as well as beneficial to the child. 2. Enthusiastic, yet realistic: Once the idea of two languages has settled in, many people consider adding more.

    Usually the number of languages spoken within the household is enough for the child to absorb, but it’s actually possible to successfully introduce as many as four languages simultaneously -- provided you can offer enough exposure and need for each one. Still, research suggests that a child needs to be exposed to a language 30% of his waking time to actively speak it, and since waking time is a finite quantity, so, too, is language acquisition. 3. The practical plan: Next, you need to make sure you have a plan. Agree on who speaks what language to whom and then stick to it. There are endless variations on the two most successful language systems. The most common involves one person who always speaks to the child in the ‘foreign’ language. Anyone who is spending a significant amount of time with the child can function as this primary speaker.

    The second common language system is where the whole family speaks in the foreign language. To add another language beyond those already spoken within the family, or if your family doesn’t speak any foreign languages, you’ll need to provide an outside source like an immersion program, a nanny or an au pair. 4. Get together: Building a support network is probably the most underestimated success factor, so find others who are raising their children to speak your language.

    You’ll benefit from their knowledge and be able to share both your doubts and your triumphs. It also ensures future play dates that will provide your child with the ultimate language teachers -- other kids. Books, music, movies, and toys in your minority language are the most obvious ways to boost your child’s exposure, but there is also an amazing range of other household items such as place mats, tableware, posters, etc. 5 Be patient: Raising multilingual children requires patience, and there are going to be times when doubt sneaks in. As with most aspects of parenting, it’s a long-term commitment and there will be ups and downs.

    But remember, that’s happening to the parents of the monolingual children too! Don't worry if your child doesn't speak his multiple languages as quickly or as adeptly as his peers. Instead focus upon his successes and marvel at the development of his little brain. Always praise, praise, and then praise some more! Know that when your child says, "I want a hug" in your language, you'll almost cry with pride.

    At that moment, it won't matter that it took some extra effort or that you had to wait a bit for the result. And, hey, remember, you’re not alone. Madonna, Andre Agassi, and Antonio Banderas are among those raising bilingual children. And if they can do it, why shouldn’t you?

         
    Raising kids the green way

     

    Vegans exempt animal products from their lifestyle. This is easy enough for committed older vegans, but how to raise a kid with no milk, ice cream, chocolate, or candy? In today's, predominantly meat-dependent and animal fashion crazed world, it is certainly a challenge for vegan parents to raise their children. Fortunately, the years brought an abundance of information about vegan fashion, vegan shoes, vegan recipes, vegan lifestyle, and veganism. All that vegan parents need right now are determination and creativity to encourage their children to take up the vegan way of life. The first hurdle vegans have to face is the question of feeding their children. There are lots of available food choices in the market today for vegan fare. Vegan recipes are not just salads; they extend to casseroles, baked dishes, and even desserts. Vegan ice creams, smoothies, and candies are now available in the market. These items taste just as good as the traditional dairy products minus the animal abuse. Children being raised on vegan diets won't feel any different from non-vegan kids. The trick is to include substitutes for popular kiddie treats so vegan children won't feel out of place with their non-vegan peers. Vegan dieticians recommend substituting tomato sauce with meat substitutes for regular meat sauces. There is a variety of soy cheeses and flavored soy milk drinks that are completely vegan without sacrificing flavors. Fruit waffles and juices are most welcomed treats. Meat substitutes in pork, beef, poultry, or fish flavors are available. Vegan kids would not miss out on the joys of junk food, except that theirs won't cause them acne and make them healthier. "Junk" foods like popcorn, baked potato and vegetable chips, sweetened dried fruits, raisins, and fruit chips are popular choices. Beverages like fruit smoothies and fruit juices are deliciously sinful enough to be considered junk food. However, kids are easier to manage than teenagers, more so when they're vegans. There are the fashion trends to reckon with: that trendy leather jacket, the fur scarf, or the chic leather boots everyone is talking about. A teenager must have them. Remind them if they're really up to wearing dead animal skins on their body and then buy them some enviable vegan fashion items. There are boutiques that sell exclusively vegan apparel. Vegan online shops also have extensive, not to mention, affordable and chic choices for vegan shoes, vegan clothes, vegan jackets, and even vegan accessories. Vegan cosmetics are also available and they have been proven to be better than the ones that are animal-tested and made with animal oils. After all, slim and fit vegan bodies deserve fashionably gorgeous vegan clothes. Vegan family support groups assert that proper education and information about animal rights and abuse is important. Understanding the vegan lifestyle makes managing and raising vegan kids easier. When they are aware and informed, kids are surprisingly easy to handle. They do make their own choices, but with information, they usually make the right choice. So they strongly advise starting vegan families to encourage each other and educate their children to make them understand why is it good to be vegan. With understanding, the kids become cooperative and healthier, and the family stays together longer.

         
    Reading glasses contact lenses and eye glasses

     

    Reading glasses come in two main styles: full frames, and half-eyes, the smaller Franklin glasses that sit lower down on the nose. Many people feel they look better in contact lenses rather than eyeglasses. Reading glasses are suitable for people who spend a great deal of time concentrating on material close-up. Contacts lenses are a safe and effective alternative to eyeglasses when used with care and proper supervision. The need for reading glasses has long been associated with being old. Have you found yourself having to push that magazine out at arm's length to see the fine print? You've officially reached middle age. However contact lenses, when compared with eyeglasses, require a longer initial examination, more follow-up visits to maintain eye health, and more time for lens care. Reading glasses can be custom-made for each individual through an optical dispenser, or they can be purchased "ready-made" at the pharmacy or department store. Contact lenses move with your eye, allow a natural field of view, have no frames to obstruct your vision, and greatly reduce distortions. They do not fog up, like eyeglasses, nor does mud or rain splatter them. Reading glasses are safe in that they cannot damage the eyes physically, whether or not they are the optimal strength, or whether they are used correctly or incorrectly. Contact lenses, compared to eyeglasses, generally offer better sight. Reading glasses, containing low power plus sphere lenses, and are widely available for non-prescription, over-the-counter purchase. Most eye-care professionals recommend replacing your contact lenses case every 3 months for optimum eye health.

         
    Recreational vs educational after school activities

     

    So, your child is beginning to get restless and make you restless. He has got more time than is good for him, and you are now considering after school programs - anything that will keep him busy for a few life-saving hours! Most after school activities can be broadly classified into three - recreational, educational and society-oriented. The last bit usually comes in when your child is already a bit grown up and can voice his own interests. Educational activities aim at furthering the knowledge of your child. His general awareness, his understanding and his memory are targeted and he is given various techniques that will help him improve one or all of these. Programs such as intensive memory training and speed mathematics are educational after school activities. There are academic programs that will go over your child's homework and class work and help the child gain more in-depth knowledge in the various subjects. Thus academic programs have a definite edge over the fun and games, especially if parents feel that their child has a lot of catching up to do. Recreational activities include sports and games, fine arts, painting etc. The main thrust here is to have fun. Of course, classes become more competitive as the child climbs up the ladder. Many sport events, competitions, stage performances etc are held to encourage the child. When we compare the merits of the two kinds of activities, I believe that the recreational programs have more meat. Firstly, children do not enjoy learning unless they themselves feel curious about something. Most academic programs are standardized courses that are not too flexible. They have a general purpose and a well laid out methodology. After a number of hours at school, the child may feel bored. Further study may overwhelm him and make him feel frustrated. Burnout is very much a possibility here. Recreational programs provide a welcome break from the monotony of learning and studies. The mental challenge and the physical exertion make the child feel a renewed zest and a pleasant sense of fulfillment. Group activity teaches him social skills, discipline and patience. It is a proven fact that children involved in extra curricular activities get better grades than others. Sometimes closing the textbooks and playing a game may be the best way to handle your studies. Whatever program you choose for your child, regular evaluation is the key to success. You will have to measure the child's progress. If progress is unsatisfactory, shift your child out of the program. The child should also have the freedom to reject an activity if and when he feels bored with it. Generally, programs that combine the educational with the recreational are best suited especially for younger children. This way, children can have fun while they learn.

         
    Relationship building with after school activities

     

    After school activities are the rage of the day. With about $500 million invested in these programs and more than 10 million children attending them in America alone, the popularity of these activities cannot be overlooked. Everyone understands the need to develop new skills, gain more knowledge and keep the children safe when parents are working. The most important factor in the success of any program is the relationship between the children participating in the program and the adult members who work with these children. Often, children may confide in an adult member who is not a teacher. This kind of emotional interaction is a must when children are struggling to make sense of the whirlpool of emotions that assail them. Direct contact with professionals can be an inspiring experience. Children are very much impressed by the knowledge and experience of these adults. Young people gain a lot of knowledge and experience when they deal with experienced adults and older youth who serve as teachers or mentors in these programs. These mentors are different from the teachers in the school and children are more likely to draw inspiration from them. After school activities that are managed professionally by people who are successful in their own fields of expertise will produce children who are more enthusiastic and successful. Meaningful interaction with adults is a learning experience in itself.

         
    Relax new building products offer maintenance free living

     

    To help homeowners easily maintain their homes without sacrificing large windows of time, companies are developing maintenance-free products that greatly reduce the traditional hours needed for home upkeep. Maintenance-free products provide homeowners with many benefits, including more time for recreational activities, reduced maintenance costs, appealing appearances and greater home values. There are maintenance-free products available to outfit many areas of the home, such as: • Vinyl and insulated sidings are virtually maintenance-free without the worry of peeling and cracking paint. Traditional vinyl siding styles like clapboard, Dutch lap and beaded can give a home a fresh appearance. Another option is insulated siding. Insulated siding offers long-lasting beauty with all the benefits of maintenance freedom. This siding alternative delivers up to four times the insulating power of traditional vinyl siding for better energy efficiency and added savings, and reduces air infiltration and noise by up to 45 percent. ( cranesiding) • Vinyl windows never need to be painted, and won't flake, peel or chip. Fiberglass windows can withstand extreme temperatures, have great resistance to corrosion, salt and other chemicals and are impervious to moisture. In addition, glass block is typically used for basement windows, but is being used in other locations, including bathrooms, kitchens and even living rooms. ( pittsburghcorning) • Small air leaks around windows and doors not only allow energy to escape from the house and cause an increase in energy bills, but can also cause damage to your insulation from dampness. Luckily, caulking around windows can be a long-term fix to help tackle this temperature and water problem. Easy-to-use, acrylic caulks are a great choice since they provide a durable, weather-resistant, flexible seal with low odor and easy water cleanup. Quality caulks can remain effective for up to 20 years. ( polyseamseal) • New composite decking materials are made with plastic resins and wood fibers. No painting, sealing or staining is necessary. The composite boards are typically comfortable to touch, even on sunny days. ( timbertech) • Unlike wood, vinyl fencing requires no painting or staining. It will not rot, warp or splinter. In fact, vinyl fencing will keep its good look for years longer than wood fencing with no maintenance required. ( vinylvisions) • Lighting accounts for about seven percent of a home's total energy use. In fact, homeowners spend more to light their home than to operate their refrigerator all year long. New compact fluorescent bulbs use at least two-thirds less energy and generate 70 percent less heat than incandescent bulbs. In fact, a 23-watt compact fluorescent bulb produces the same amount of light as a 100-watt incandescent. Plus, the compact fluorescent bulbs last up to 10,000 hours.

         
    Relaxation right at home

     

    Everyone is entitled to a good, relaxing weekend after five whole days of nothing but work and school assignments. Each family member wants and deserves a weekend of pure relaxation. Too often, people take out-of-town trips and vacations to unwind. Not too many people know that there are endless possibilities of doing stress relief activities right inside their very home. Of course, these stress relieving activities may vary depending on each of the family member's unique personality, preference, and lifestyle. For parents, it is double the stress since they have to go to work, do their job, and at the same time manage their home. Managing a home is not that easy since these parents have to deal with their children and schoolwork, daily family meals, bills to pay, cleaning, and basically maintaining their home for good and healthy living. Since the only time they spend with their family is on weekends, there are limitless possibilities in pursuing relaxation right at home. Starting with women, they have a lot of stress relief techniques in mind when it comes to simple relaxation. From going to the spa and having a whole body massage, to simple aromatherapy for relaxing their senses --- these are only some of the things that many tired, stressed women miss out on. Some women want to give and make their family happy through the simple act of baking cookies or a yummy chocolate cake for the kids. By seeing her loved ones happy, this would make her heart smile and makes the day worthwhile. Going on with the family man, he has his own way of relaxing, depending on his personality and his interests. For some, carpentry or woodwork can be an amazing source of stress relief, since they get to work on a home project that will make both him and his wife happy. Another would be cars. This is a total giveaway for men, since cars have this certain impact on their masculinity. Whether fixing or restoring it, this can be a good reward after all the work that they have put on it. If the family man is not the “Mr. Fix-it” type, they could opt for a trip somewhere with the family. Going outdoors by camping, swimming, or just a simple picnic by the park would lessen the thoughts of work and focus more on family relations. Simply put...it's all about family bonding. Of course, during such special family moments, everybody would feel more relaxed and also have fun at the same time. For the children, it is especially crucial to have them exposed to creative activities in order to keep their creative juices flowing. From video games to boardgames, to backyard activities such as baseball, basketball, swimming, to the very fun trampoline, these kids can surely have fun and learn at the same time. Of course, watching TV is like breathing air for them, so for the parents, they have to at least monitor what their children are watching and make sure that what they watch is fun and educational. Relaxation for the family is not as hard as it seems, for they only have to know what their interests are, and how to have fun at the same time. Relaxation time can also mean family bonding time, since weekends are the only whole days they spend with each other. By just being together and having a great time, this is relaxation in itself.

         
    Relieving headaches through lifestyle changes

     

    Tension is the most common cause of headaches and other pains that we feel within our body. Usually, what people do to relieve this tension induced headache is to take anti-anxiety drugs and sedatives. These drugs are fast acting and seem to be the best remedy for headaches. However, the use of these drugs can not give us a lifelong relief from headaches. These drugs can even lead to a more serious problem since anti-convulsive and sedative drugs may cause dependence in the part of the individual after long term use. The curative effect of these drugs are just temporary which means that you need to pop a pill each time you feel tensed and anxious. We need a better way to address tension headaches; there is no other route to take other than a drastic lifestyle change. If you wish to suffer no more without the use of prescription pills, here are some of the changes that you need to follow. Exercise Daily. Exercising is a good way to avoid muscle tension. By doing regular exercise, our muscles get toned and relaxed. We can gain control over our muscles that gets uptight in times of distress and anxiety. Through exercise techniques, we will find ourselves being able to handle moments of anxiety or stress. Any tension is dispersed and thus prevents the onset of headaches. If you are suffering from regular headaches, try to exercise daily and see the difference. Avoid Caffeine. If you are a strong coffee drinker with regular bouts of headache, read on. We all know that caffeine contributes to the increase in muscle tension. It is said that continuous intake of caffeine actually triggers flight response. High caffeine dosage can increases our cardiac rate which further increases the chance for tension headaches. In this case, it is recommended that we just limit our caffeine intake so as to balance its effects. Maintain Good Posture. Good posture is a determinant whether or not a person is likely to experience tension headaches. You can see people shrinking when in distress; a lifelong habit of bad posture can mean that you are not living life well. Happy people are full of zest and walk confident and straight. Start to examine the way you sit, if you see yourself sitting like an old man then straighten up. A good posture can mean better circulation for your body. There are so many ways were posture affects the overall health. Be aware and start changing your ways. The best thing one could do in order to relieve tension naturally is through modifying your lifestyle and reshaping your routine and attitude. Although it may take longer to relieve tension through natural ways, these subtle lifestyle changes will help you avoid dependence on drugs that will later get you to a far worse situation.

         
    Rely on experts when using online information

     

    Increasingly, savvy homeowners are making the Web their first stop when taking on a home improvement project. There are websites that, with the click of a mouse, can detail everything from caulking to landscaping to hiring a pest professional for an annual inspection. It's important, however, to make sure you are getting useful and accurate information. According to James and Morris Carey-nationally recognized experts on home building and renovation, and hosts of the syndicated radio show "On The House"-the key is to select a few reliable websites to serve as guides. "The Internet can be both a help and a hindrance," warns James. "It can be downright time-consuming to comb through the dizzying number of sites that are out there. So, it's absolutely critical to rely on the quality of information a site has to offer, in addition to educated recommendations from reliable home improvement experts." The Carey Bros. advise keeping the following websites a click away: • TheFamilyHandyman: For the DIY-minded consumer, this website hosts a large assortment of great tips and quick fixes. Easy to maneuver, it includes step-by-step pictures for each tip, a resource that's quite helpful for first-time projects. • HGTV: Ideal for decorating, remodeling, gardening and crafts, this website has educational and engaging video tutorials and inspirational content to challenge ambitious homeowners. • OnTheHouse: The official website of the Carey Bros., this website is host to over 20 years of seasoned home improvement expertise, updated daily with fresh content. Says James, "We're fortunate enough to share the tried and true and the latest and greatest home improvement tips and trends with our audience." • TermiteInstitute: There are some projects that even seasoned homeowners should leave to the pros, and termite defense is one of them. Recently featured in The New York Times as a premier termite consumer education resource, TermiteInstitute provides a complete, simple tutorial on termites-how to rid your home of them, as well as prevent them.

         
    Reminders a gradual evolution

     

    One of the most vivid symbols of modern man is the image of finger with a ribbon tied around it. That image symbolizes a reminder, of not forgetting a chore, a task or an event. One of the dilemmas of modern man is the need for reminders. We are faced with so many responsibilities, chores and roles that sometimes we forget the details. But it is precisely this failure to remember that could bring a negative consequence to the many responsibilities that we have to juggle around. We have to be effective in our responsibilities and forgetting is not an option. It is because of this that we have a strong need to look for various ways to remind us of the details. The evolution of instruments and strategies for reminders has gone a long way. During the more low-tech years, one of the more effective methods used was by either circling important events in our calendars at home or taking note of the reminder in a small notebook. These are good instruments but it also had its limitations, most especially with the calendar-at-home method because you obviously cannot bring it with you. Busy mothers as well as working professionals are not always in one place so there was a gradual but increased emphasis on mobility and mobile solutions for reminders. Because of the new mobility factor, diaries and filofaxes became in vogue. The added benefit of a filofax system is that you not only get to bring the reminders with you, important data like addresses and contact details of clients, friends and family members. For a long time, the filofax system and other variants like the Franklin Planner became the standard for effective time management and reminders. The fact that this system became firmly entrenched not only in corporate culture but also among home-bound but still busy family members say a lot about its effectiveness. But it was only a matter of time before technology would bring about another shift in the time management and reminder systems. The advent of personal computers had a lot to do with this gradual shift to electronic equipment for the task of giving people reminders. Operating systems gradually included alarm, appointment and reminder functions that are easy to use and operate. For the more mobile solutions, one of the earliest progenitors was the Apple Newton, Apple’s doomed foray into mobile computing. The first really successful electronic-based time management and reminder system were the Palm handhelds. The easy to use interface, the portability, and the mobility were the qualities that made it an overwhelming success. It’s all in one functions (address book, reminders, appointments, word processing, games) made it very attractive to many people especially those who need the power of a computer in a form factor that would allow them to bring it on the field. The introduction of Pocket PC’s The internet age has now brought another significant change. The desire of mobile solutions has taken a different road with online reminder services that can be found on the internet. This is a more pervasive form of reminding because not only can it be accessed anywhere there is an internet connection (which is practically everywhere because of WiFi and internet hotspots), these online reminder services have a unique feature in that it can send email reminders to a person’s mailbox on a daily basis. The reminder function now has a level of interactivity and pro-activeness that was missing from other previous solutions.

         
    Remodeling a bathroom

     

    So you've decided that it's time to update your bathroom. Whether you're planning to sell your home or you've simply decided your family needs a more updated space, there are a few important decisions you should make before you start. First of all, consider what needs to go (no pun intended). Are you remodeling because all of the fixtures - tub, shower, toilet and sink - are outdated? Or is there a specific area of the bathroom that doesn't work for you? Maybe the floor is outdated or peeling, or the mirrors are in inconvenient places, or you'd like to knock out a closet or install some shelving. Before you start, pin down the exact things about your bathroom that need work. Don't immediately assume you need to overhaul the entire room. You may be able to save yourself big bucks by starting with the problem areas. If your bathroom seems too small, you might not need to tear out a wall. Maybe you just need a pedestal sink instead of a cabinet one. If you're more than ready to just tear the whole thing up and start from scratch, you'll have to make some decisions about what's going to replace the current fixtures. Take some measurements of your tub, sink and toilet, the replacements you're considering, and the size of the room. Keep in mind that just because you want a claw foot bathtub doesn't mean you should have one - your bathroom may be too small for anything but a tub that fits closely into the wall. Draw some diagrams, and move things around until they seem to fit. But keep in mind that the layout of a bathroom is fairly limited. The water pipes only come out of the walls in certain places, so unless you're planning on tearing up the walls and the plumbing, your toilet and shower will probably stay where they are, even if you replace them with new ones. Making decisions about what new items to buy should be the easy part. Look into purchasing a low-flow toilet. If you haven't had a new toilet in awhile, you will be amazed at the savings on your water bill once a new, water-saving model is installed. This is also a huge plus to potential buyers, who will love the idea of saving on utilities each month. Safety in the bathroom is also a consideration. Consider handles around the tub and a non-slip floor covering specifically designed for bathrooms. Many older bathrooms are lacking in safety features, and that's a down side when it comes time to estimate a home's value. Remodeling your bathroom is going to be a job that requires some forethought. Whether you're doing it to sell the home or for your family, it's best to take space, safety, and convenience into consideration. You spend an awful lot of time going in and out of your bathroom. It might as well be comfortable!

         
    Residential asbestos abatement reducing the risk of asbestos diseases

     

    The Firms and Cost Incurred in Asbestos Abatement Residential asbestos abatement is the process to determine if a material is asbestos containing and to take necessary steps removal of asbestos containing materials from the residential buildings. During residential abatement processes you have to ensure that the material is sampled and analyzed by an analytical laboratory. Laboratories that are accredited by the National Institute of Science and Technology (NIST) through the National Voluntary Laboratory Accreditation Program or which successfully participate in the asbestos bulk-analysis program of the American Industrial Hygiene Association (AIHA) can only be relied in determining the presence of asbestos. There are certified asbestos inspectors who collect the bulk samples for determining asbestos content during the residential asbestos abatement process. These are certified asbestos inspectors and can be hired through a consulting firm. These consulting firms are registered in the yellow pages under asbestos or environmental consultants. You can also look for them under the head of residential asbestos abatement. The asbestos inspections are conducted on a random basis, cost incurred depends on the amount of material being removed, and which method is adapted for the abatement. The residential asbestos abatement can cost from $500 to $2000. Precautions required to be taken in Residential Asbestos Abatement Process Any asbestos removal includes the use of engineering controls to reduce the release of fibers in the environment. This is to make sure that the residential asbestos abatement process is safe and do not pose any health hazards. Engineering controls include the use of water during removal, filtered ventilation systems, and plastic barriers for isolating the work area. Though there are no immediate health symptoms from asbestos exposure, but when getting a residential asbestos abatement program done, you should observe that containment constructed of polythene sheeting is surrounding the component(s) from which asbestos is to be removed. In cases where there is a small quantity of asbestos to be removed, you should use a glove bag. You are entitled to request for a copy of the contractor’s license, project/program work plan, the original results before the program, air-monitoring results from the analytical laboratory and a copy of the waste manifest for the disposal of the asbestos. The whole procedure of residential asbestos abatement would take a full day or possibly two days for completion.
