Different Decking Maintenance


Matt Buchel

Revitalizing your garden with affordable price and low maintenance system, setting decking could be the answer. This fast and practical way of beautifying a garden, backyard or commercial business is more popular than ever.

Decking can be used as a smart alternative to the strenuous chores with keeping a perfect yard. Wood timber gives a natural feeling than those of gravel and it eco friendly with plant pots and flower beds. It is one easiest building component to work with, denoting you can create designs almost any shape or size you want. Moreover, it provides an immaculate facade for furniture. This style also are being adapt by bars and cafes to captivate sun-loving customers in the summer. However, quality design agenda must be plan before all the decking started. This few things are need to be considered:

1.What landscape are you working with?

2.Is the ground sloping or flat, or plagued with pot-holes? The charm of decking is that even if your yard is uneven, decking can be set up perfectly.

3.Do you want flower beds built in?

4.Who the users of the deck?

5. Is it part of your home, or for commercial business?

6.Will it be subjected to heavy weights, such as a hot tub or a crowd of people?

Extra features can be added to your deck like spaces for sand pits and climbing frames for kids. Consider the light in the location – adults might enjoy it in the sun, but children need more shade.

Once you have decided to build one, either on your own or with a landscaper, you can draw up plans that match your house and your yard. But, it is much wiser to hire somebody to install a decking than to be to be left with a disaster if you make a mistake.

Timber deck built with good quality materials lasted up to twenty years and in order to keep yours robust and looking good, you need to use freshly-treated wood that helps prevent rotting and damp. Be sure to use suitable materials for the timber. Do not use an outdoor coating that is intended for vertical surfaces like windows and doors, as these can peel and chip when applied on a flat deck.

If you are a deck wizard, there are online magazines that you can subscribe to unleash your cleverness around the world!

UN Report: Earth ecosystem in peril

Filed Under (Uncategorized) by XpvB79 on 05-07-2017

Thursday, March 31, 2005 A report Tuesday from a United Nations-backed project, consulting more than 1,300 scientists from 95 countries, and written over the last four years, warns that 60 percent of the basics of life on Earth — water, food, timber, clean air — are currently being used in ways which degrade them. Furthermore, fisheries and fresh water use-patterns are unsustainable, and getting worse.

“The harmful consequences of this degradation could grow significantly worse in the next 50 years,” according to a press release from the Millennium Ecosystem Assessment (MA), a massive four-year study begun in 2001.

“We’ve had many reports on environmental degradation, but for the first time we’re now able to draw connections between ecosystem services and human well-being,” Cristian Samper, director of the Smithsonian Institution’s National Museum of Natural History in Washington and a chief architect of the study, told the Christian Science Monitor.

The project’s Synthesis Report, first in a series of eleven documents and published yesterday, explains the objective: “to assess the consequences of ecosystem change for human well-being and to establish the scientific basis for actions needed to enhance the conservation and sustainable use of ecosystems and their contributions to human well-being.”

It then goes on to report on four main findings:

  • Changes over the last 50 years to meet rapidly growing demands for food, fresh water, timber, fiber and fuel, have effected substantial and largely irreversible loss in the diversity of life on Earth.
  • Net gains in human well-being and economic development are offset by growing costs, in the form ecosystem degradation, the possibility of abrupt and unpredictable ecosystem changes, and worsened poverty for some groups. Unless addressed, these problems will substantially diminish the benefits that future generations obtain from ecosystems.
  • Ecosystem degradation could grow significantly worse over the next 50 years, presenting a barrier to meeting UN Millennium Development Goals.
  • The challenge of reversing the degradation while meeting increasing ecological demands can be partially met under some scenarios, but only with significant changes in policies, institutions and practices — changes that are not currently under way.

Walter Reid, the study’s director, speaking at yesterday’s London launch of the report said it shows that over the last 50 years “humans have changed ecosystems more rapidly and extensively than in any comparable time in human history.”

“This has resulted in substantial and largely irreversible loss in the diversity of life on Earth,” he said.

It is unclear what this will mean to future generations or the possible emergence of new diseases, absence of fresh water and the continuing decline of fisheries and completely unpredictable weather.

With half of the urban populations of Africa, Asia, Latin America and the Caribbean suffering from several diseases associated with these problems, the death toll is reaching 1.7 million people a year. Entire species of mammals, birds and amphibians are disappearing from the planet at nearly 1,000 times the natural rate, according to the study. Oxygen-depleted coastal waters and rivers result from overuse of nitrogen fertilizer – an effect known as “nutrient loading” which leads to continuing biodiversity loss.

With the United States’ non-participation in the Kyoto Treaty, former U.S. Senator Timothy Wirth, president of this U.N. Foundation, says “U.S. leadership is critical in providing much-needed expertise, technological capabilities and ingenuity to restore ecosystems.

“We can take steps at home to reduce our nation’s adverse impact on the global environment.”

“At the heart of this assessment is a stark warning,” said the 45-member board.

Arsonist behind Namdaemun gate fire in Seoul imprisoned for 10 years

Filed Under (Uncategorized) by XpvB79 on 05-07-2017

Friday, April 25, 2008

The arsonist responsible for setting fire to the historic Sungnyemun gate (more commonly referred to as Namdaemun gate) in Seoul, South Korea in February has been sentenced to ten years’ imprisonment. The 600-year-old landmark was considred one of the nation’s greatest and most iconic, with some sources describing it as the single most important one in the country.

The 69-year-old male defendant has a previous conviction from two years ago for attempting to torch the Changgyeong palace, for which he received a suspended prison sentence and was fined. It is understood he destroyed the Namdaemun gate and attacked the palace over an unconnected land ownership dispute which had angered him. He felt that the compulsory purchase of his home a decade ago had been inadequatly compensated for by the state.

After the fire, residents left flowers at the scene and wrote grieving notes.

Chae Jong-Gi, who admitted the crime, was told of the seriousness of the offence in a statement by the Seoul district court. “A heavy sentence is inevitable as the accused inflicted unbearable agony on the people and damaged national pride… (The monument was) the treasure among all treasures which had survived all kinds of historic disasters. Even if restored, the gate’s originality will never return. Therefore, the nature and consequences of this crime are very serious,” said the statement.

The man is thought to have selected the gate as a target due to lax security measures. In the fire’s aftermath, officials have been criticised over this and concerns that firefighting efforts were ineffective, and the Cultural Heritage Administration‘s chief resigned to show he accepted responsibility for the blaze.

The two storey gate in pagoda style was constructed in 1398 and despite a 1447 rebuild and multiple renovations still contained original timbers prior to the destruction in the fire. Only the stone base survived.

According to the Cultural Heritage Administration, a reconstruction effort will take two to three years and cost 20 billion won (US$21 million).

Key words in the title tag This tag has the highest rank. In the tag should not include more than 65-70 characters. The smaller the tag words, the higher rank are the words included in this tag. In addition, the tag value is used by search engines as the title found document. Therefore, do not give in to it a list of keywords, and draw up a title page containing the keyword.

The density of keywords in the text. The text of the document must meet the key word. The optimum density – 4-5%.

Keywords in the tag H1, H2. The situation is analogous to the situation with a tag with the tag title.

The presence of a keyword in the address. The key word in the address in English. Choose a better word, which sounds nicer and more memorable.

Keywords in text links. (internal and external), a positive effect on the position of the site

The situation of the keyword on the page. The higher the better.

The size of the document. The search engines are not always fully indexed documents are very large and small are not taken seriously. The desirable size of the document 20-50 Kbyte

Topic link on your site. It is desirable that it coincides with the theme of your site

Availability of external links on the pages of your site. Less – better. If they are, it must be thematic.

Date of document The greater age of the page – the better.

The frequency of updating the document. The more updates – so the quality of information. At least search engines think so.

Number of external links to your site. The more – the better, but to improve the position in the external links should be keywords.

The period of registration of the domain. Considers Google. Thus it determines the seriousness of the site.

Keyword in meta keyword. The influence of this factor debatable, but it is better to use it. There can be only better.

Tags strong, alt, b. Greater effect is not given, but it is.

Standards W3. Perhaps the position of the site did not affect much, but the standard is a standard and stick to his need.

Site map for good indexing by search engines, the site must have a tree structure. Sections and subsections. Prior to each page of the site should not be more than 5 clicks (5 layers).

Synonyms keyword. Search engines have algorithms that are able to recognize on the synonyms of your keywords. Therefore, to improve readability, you can use synonyms. For example the students and the pupils.

We examined the factors that positively affect the position of the site in search results. Some of them will be discussed in more detail in the following sections. Now, not to make irreversible mistakes, let us consider the factors adversely affecting the position of the site.

External links to the Non-sites. With a large number of links to other sites, topics that do not coincide with the theme of your site, resulting in a decline in the position

Spam Too frequent use of keywords (20%) or nonsensical text on the page, not carrying any information.

Invisible text, invisible text, in order to artificially increase the keyword weight. Generally, all invisible to the keywords – bad. For example the image-link in 1 pixel. Search engine immediately detects it, and anything good from this is not followed.

Use redirect only 301 That swing, but not all redirects searchers can identify.

Link Exchange Currently, search engines have learned to recognize this type of link exchange and Google considers badly to excessive reciprocal link exchange.

White farmer who beat Mugabe in court over land seizures, dies

Filed Under (Uncategorized) by XpvB79 on 02-07-2017

Saturday, April 9, 2011

The Zimbabwean farmer who took Robert Mugabe to court over the seisure of land from white farmers, Mike Campbell, has died at the age of 78. It is claimed by his family that Mr. Campbell never fully recovered after being kidnapped and severely beaten by Zimbabwean militants.

The Southern Africa correspondent for the BBC, Karen Allen, said that Mr. Campbell became “one of the most well known names in the white farming community in Zimbabwe.”

His struggle through the courts was captured in an award winning documentary, Mugabe and the White African, although his win in the regional courts was subsequently ignored by Mugabe, whose policy of land removal continued, along with the intimidation of residents and workers on white owned farms.

Campbell and some members of his family were kidnapped in mid 2008, and taken to a military camp where they were severely beaten, before being made to sign legal documents stating that they would drop the case against Mugabe. However, the case went ahead, and in November of the same year, the regional SADC tribunal ruled that the land seizures were against the law, and directed the Zimbabwean government to protect the rights of the landowners in Zimbabwe.

Mugabe refused however, and stated that he and Zanu-PF militants would continue to take land from white farmers, since the policy of land reform was a core policy and “could not be reversed.”

Even today, out of an estimated 4,000 white owned farms, only 300 still remain and the evictions continue.

Mr. Campbell suffered health issues after being attacked, losing certain mental functions including calculation. After the seizure of his property, he went to Harare, and it is here that he died on Wednesday, homeless. His own home on the land he’d owned, burned to the ground in front of him by supporters of the Zanu-PF party.

DiCaprio finally wins Oscar for Best Actor

Filed Under (Uncategorized) by XpvB79 on 02-07-2017

Monday, February 29, 2016

Yesterday Leonardo DiCaprio won his first Oscar, for Best Actor, at the 88th Academy Awards. The award ended DiCaprio’s long wait for an Academy Award — he was first nominated in 1993 and won on his sixth nomination, for his role in The Revenant, which also won Best Cinematography and Best Director.

I thank you all for this amazing award tonight. Let us not take this planet for granted. I do not take tonight for granted. Thank you so very much.

In his acceptance speech, DiCaprio described The Revenant as “about man’s relationship to the natural world”, and spoke of underprivileged people affected adversely by human activities on nature. He also said “Our production needed to move to the southern tip of this planet just to be able to find snow”. He concluded saying “I thank you all for this amazing award tonight. Let us not take this planet for granted. I do not take tonight for granted. Thank you so very much.”

DiCaprio was previously nominated for his work in The Wolf of Wall Street, for Best Actor and Best Picture; Blood Diamond, for Best Actor; The Aviator, Best Actor; and What’s Eating Gilbert Grape, for Best Supporting Actor.

Kate Winslet, who co-starred with DiCaprio in Titanic, was nominated for Best Supporting Actress for Steve Jobs, but lost to Swedish actress Alicia Vikander for her role in The Danish Girl. Brie Larson collected Best Actress for her performance in Room.

Mad Max: Fury Road had ten nominations and won six of them: Best Costume Design, Film Editing, Makeup and Hairstyling, Production Design, Sound Editing, and Sound Mixing. Ex Machina won the award for Best Visual Effects. Spotlight won the Best Picture award, and Sam Smith’s song Writing’s on the Wall won Best Original Song for Spectre ahead of the Grammy-winning song Earned It by Canadian singer The Weeknd.

Politically concerned movie Zootopia wins Academy Award for Best Animated Feature Film

Filed Under (Uncategorized) by XpvB79 on 02-07-2017

Wednesday, March 1, 2017

On Sunday, Disney’s Zootopia won the Oscars award for the Best Animated Feature Film at the 89th Academy Awards ceremony held at Los Angeles. Pixar’s animated short Piper won the Oscar for Best Animated Short Film and Disney’s The Jungle Book won for Visual Effects.

Others competing with Zootopia in the category were Kubo and the Two Strings, My Life as a Zucchini, The Red Turtle, and Disney’s Moana. This was the first Oscar for directors Byron Howard and Rich Moore who were previously nominated for, respectively, Bolt and Wreck-It Ralph.

In the acceptance speech, director Byron Howard said, “About five years ago, almost six now, […] we got this crazy idea of talking about humanity with talking animals in the hopes that, when the film came out, it would make the world just a slightly better place.” The Disney movie addresses several social problems such as racism, sexism, prejudice, stereotyping, and fear. The New York Times said the parental guidance (PG) rated movie was “Funny, smart, thought-provoking — and musical, too.”

Before announcing the award, Mexican actor Gael Garcia Bernal said, “As a Mexican, as a Latin-American, as a migrant worker, as a human being, I’m against any form of wall that wants to separate us.” The movie was released in March, during the 2016 US presidential race.

In an interview with Variety, the directors of Zootopia said movies about bias and discrimination haven’t been Disney’s main focus, but during its production, “Things were not great in the world. […] It was more like we had our finger on something important right now and we really need to do our best to portray this as honestly as we can. Then with the election and the campaign, the real move towards governing by fear […] I don’t think we could have predicted it any closer with this film.”

With this win, the Walt Disney Company has won nine out of ten Best Animated Feature Film Oscars in the last decade, with Pixar Animation Studio winning six out of them. Zootopia also won Best Animated Film at the Annie Awards and the Golden Globe Awards.

U2 fan ordered to destroy CDs

Filed Under (Uncategorized) by XpvB79 on 02-07-2017

Thursday, August 14, 2008

A man living in South Wales, United Kingdom was ordered to destroy his entire music collection after creating a ruckus by listening to the music at an extremely high volume. Police seized his stereo equipment in a raid. Karl Wiosna, a 44-year-old resident of Graig in Pontypridd, was playing Cher‘s album Believe at extremely high volume. His neighbours complained under the Environmental Protection Act and he was warned not to play the album at such high volume. However, he thought the warning was only for the Cher album, and he then started to listen to a U2 album a week later. His neighbors said they could hear the lyrics in their living room.

Before the Rhondda Magistrates’ Court Wiosna admitted breaching the noise abatement notice, with which he was served. He was ordered to pay a £200 fine. He was also ordered to pay £50 in costs, £15 in victim surcharge, and to destroy his music collection.

“They took £500 to £600 worth of stuff,” complained Wiosna. “I don’t think they should be able to do it, it isn’t right.”

“A legal notice under the Environmental Protection Act was served on Wiosna demanding he reduce the volume or stop playing music,” read a statement by the Rhondda Cynon Taf County Borough Council. “Just a week after the legal notice was received, officers were called to the address during an out-of-hours emergency by a neighbour.”

“In this case, the swift and effective actions of environmental health officers enabled the issue to be dealt with and I hope it serves as a reminder to others, that we can take them to court and seize their belongings if they do not cease causing a nuisance to others,” said Councillor Mike Forey, the cabinet member for environmental health.
