แต่งบ้านไซส์มินิให้น่าอยู่

ไม่ว่าบ้านจะหลังเล็กหรือใหญ่ก็สามารถตกแต่งให้สวยงามลงตัวได้ทั้งนั้น ดูอย่างบ้านหลังเล็ก ๆ ของคนญี่ปุ่นที่ดูดีด้วยเทคนิคการตกแต่งที่ช่วยให้ทุกพื้นที่ถูกใช้ประโยชน์ได้มากที่สุด โดยนำวิธีเหล่านี้มาใช้ คือ

แบ่งสรรพื้นที่แต่ละส่วนให้ลงตัว

การจะจัดบ้านหรือคอนโดขนาดเล็กให้ดูดีน่าอยู่ ต้องเริ่มจากการวางแผนใช้งานพื้นที่แต่ละส่วนให้เหมาะสม ไม่เกะกะ หัวใจของการตกแต่งก็คือการวางเฟอร์นิเจอร์ โดยต้องทำให้ขวางทางเดินให้น้อยที่สุดโดยคำนวนจากการดูทางเดินเข้าออก จากประตูทางเข้า ไปจนถึงทางเดินเข้าห้องครัว ห้องนอน ห้องน้ำ และควรจัดพื้นที่ที่การใช้งานเกี่ยวข้องกันไว้ใกล้ ๆ หรือต่อเชื่อมกันไปเลย เช่น ห้องครัว กับพื้นที่รับประทานอาหาร และห้องนั่งเล่นดูทีวีอาจจะอยู่ใกล้ชั้นหนังสือหรือชั้นเก็บดีวีดี หรือ หนังสือ

ใช้ประโยชน์พื้นที่ทุกตารางนิ้ว

สำหรับคอนโดหรือบ้านขนาดเล็ก ๆ นั้น จะปล่อยให้พื้นที่ใดพื้นที่หนึ่งถูกลืมหรือทิ้งให้เป็นที่เก็บฝุ่นเปล่า ๆ ไม่ได้เลย ทุกตารางนิ้วไม่ว่าจะเป็นช่องว่างระหว่างช่องเสากับผนัง คาน ห้องใต้บันได ซอกเล็ก ซอกน้อย สามารถนำมาใช้ประโยชน์ได้ ไม่ว่าจะเป็นการจัดทำให้เป็นมุมหนังสือ ชั้นวางของ ที่เก็บร่ม

การเลือกใช้เฟอร์นิเจอร์และการจัดวางที่เหมาะสมก็ช่วยประหยัดพื้นที่ได้มาก สำหรับห้องเล็ก ๆ แล้ว เฟอร์นิเจอร์ที่มีการใช้งานมากกว่าแบบเดียวนั้นเหมาะสมมาก เช่น เตียงที่มีพื้นที่เก็บของด้านล่าง หรือโซฟาที่ปรับเป็นเตียงได้และมีที่เก็บของด้านล่าง โต๊ะกาแฟ เก้าอี้สไตล์ออตโตมันที่เก็บของได้

แบ่งสัดส่วนของห้องแบบไม่ทึบ

การจัดห้องเล็ก ๆ ให้ดูโปร่งนั้น หัวใจก็คือการสร้างพื้นที่ที่ต่อเนื่องกัน หากต้องการแบ่งแยกพื้นที่จริง ๆ ควรใช้วัสดุโปร่งอย่างผ้าม่านโปร่ง ๆ พลิ้ว ๆ หรือสามารถเลื่อนเปิดปิดได้ตามต้องการแบบประตูบานเลื่อน ซึ่งสามารถสร้างความเป็นสัดส่วนและรักษาความเป็นส่วนตัวไว้ได้โดยไม่ทำให้ห้องดูปิดทึบ การใช้ชั้นวางของเตี้ย ๆ ที่ไม่เกะกะสายตาเป็นตัวแบ่งพื้นที่ใช้สอยก็เป็นความคิดที่ดี

สร้างจุดสนใจในห้อง ลวงตาให้ห้องดูกว้าง

ลองใช้ทริคในการออกแบบมาสร้างภาพลวงตาให้ห้องดูโล่งโปร่งมากขึ้น เช่น การใช้สีโทนสว่างที่ช่วยให้ห้องดูโล่งมากกว่าสีเข้ม หรือการใช้สีเข้มทาบนผนังหนึ่งด้านก็ช่วยลวงตาสร้างความลึกให้ห้องได้ นอกจากสี ก็ยังมีเรื่องของลายเส้น ที่ทั้งมองเห็น หรือเป็นสิ่งที่เกิดในความรู้สึก เช่นการทาสีเป็นเส้น ลายวอลเปเปอร์หรือผ้าม่าน กรอบรูปที่แขวนเป็นเซ็ตแนวนอนหรือแนวตั้ง การวางของในแนวนอนหรือแนวตั้ง ของตกแต่งเก๋ ๆ เด่นสะดุดตาสักชิ้นหรือวัสดุมันวาวสะท้อนแสงก็ช่วยดึงดูดสายตาให้ห้องดูกว้างขึ้นได้เช่นกัน อาจเริ่มตั้งแต่หน้าบ้านโดยเลือกใช้ประตูที่มีดีไซน์มากกว่าปกติเช่นประตูหรูที่ทำจากไม้สักอย่างดี มีการตกแต่งด้วยหินสี เป็นต้น แต่ควรตกแต่งให้ไปในสไตล์เดียวกันทั้งพื้นที่

Easy And Convenient Asian Recipes With Marion’s Kitchen

Asian inspired dishes are extremely popular worldwide. Not only are they tasty, they are also healthy and easy to prepare. Most Asian recipes are not only easy to follow, but they are also versatile. While some parts are constant and mandatory, others give you the freedom to throw in other ingredients to make your recipe unique. A perfect example would be the Pad Thai recipe, which allows chefs to improvise and create their own versions.

When it comes to Asian food, all you need is to deep fry a mixture of ingredients and add a variety of seasoning, depending on what flavor you’re going for. Since most Asian deep fry recipes call for a combination of meats, vegetables and noodles, it is considered a complete, nutritious meal by many.

Following Asian Recipes

If the preference for Asian food is an acquired taste, cooking Asian food is also a skill acquired through trial and error. Nowadays though, there are specially made packets and packages designed to make cooking Asian food easier and faster. The packets usually contain all the mandatory ingredients for a certain dish, plus instructions and recommendations on which additional ingredients suit the dish best.

When it comes to Asian recipe packs, Marion’s Kitchen is one of the many choices that give you the closest thing to authentic Asian cuisine. The contents of the pack are made from natural ingredients and follows recipes originating from Thailand.

It takes skill and several tries before you manage to create something that is anywhere near authentic.

For example, although Australia has a lot of shops selling ingredients for Asian cuisine, there’s always a chance that you won’t find that perfect seasoning for your Singapore Noodles or Pad Thai.

Recipe packs like those from Marion’s Kitchen bring convenience and ease. This is perfect for people who want to eat Asian cuisine whenever they want despite having a busy schedule.

The Past and the Present come together with Organic Welsh Pork

For anyone who has had the pleasure of really eating organic pork, as opposed to the processed products found in most supermarkets, you will notice the difference in taste immediately. There is a stronger flavor to this porc. It has a real texture as well. These organic pigs are raised naturally in smaller herds. Their diet and routines follow the seasons. The pigs are reared for a much longer time than their factory farm compatriots. This will quite often result in a darker skin colour along with a rose or a pink coloured flesh. Added to this, older varieties of pigs breeds have been retained or re introduced. These include native Welsh pigs along with rare breeds such as the Mangalista and the Oxford Sandy & Black. This is a range of organic porc which gives more flavours and tastes.

Best Porc Recipes

Along with an increased range of organic Welsh porc, there has been a matching set of best pork recipes, that exploit the possibilities that have been opened up by Welsh organic pig farming.

porc

The pig is one of the most important sources of protein and amino acids. Pork also contains a range of trace elements. These are zinc and iron, along with vitamins B1, B2, B6, and B12. Again, due to factory farming, the image of pork is of a very “fatty” meat. This was not the case in the past and it is not the case now with organic Welsh pork. Also, for centuries, keeping a pig was an essential part of country life across most of Europe. Therefore, healthy recipes with pork is a real possibility.

Thinking too of the past, many cuts that were common then have now disappeared. So using the pig’s head, trotters and hock (just below the knee) have been re introduced.

The past and the present can now be brought together. These are some of the recipes available. Their names indicate that both traditional and world cuisines have been fused to produce these new combinations:

  • Pork Loin of Pork and Walnut Stuffing with Sloe Gin.
  • Pork, Mango Pate and Pistachio.
  • Pork Spare Ribs, with Maple Glaze and Stout.
  • Pork Steer Fry. Oriental Style.
  • Spicy Pork Burgers using Cheese Nachos Toppings.
  • A Pork Pot Paprika style.

How to Make Pulled Pork

This is again a traditional recipe: how to make pulled pork, which is a cut that tends to be associated with pork taken from the shoulder of a pig. It can be a tough area to cut. Consequently the pork is cooked for a long enough time until it is tender enough to be “pulled”. This can be used when roasting a joint of pork.

A pulled pork recipe will need three hours cooking time. It is best to pre-heat an oven to Gas 4 or 180c or 350f.

With this pulled pork recipe, use a roasting pan and line with a double layer of foil. Prior to cooking, it is best to remove the rind and some of the fat with a sharp knife, using a cutting board. Then score the meat with a “criss-cross” pattern. Add a further foil layer on top, before placing in the oven. A variety of ingredients can be used to heighten the taste.

Importance of Soil Testing

A soil test involves checking for various parameters in the soil, including the pH level, the available nutrients/the concentration, the presence of contamination (contamination soil testing Sydney), and the composition. Therefore, measurements of these aspects of soil are important in determining soil characteristics and suitability for certain uses such as agriculture.

Additionally, soil testing has to be carried out by experts with the right skills and tools in taking soil samples and testing them. Simple sampling and testing procedures can easily take place on-site, while more complex test procedures such as soil contamination testing Sydney have to be done at a lab facility. contamination soil testing sydney

In Sydney and NSW, the go-to soil testing expert is Alliance Geotechnical. This company provides a wide range of environmental and geotechnical services, geared at coming up with and implementing effective, innovative, and budget-friendly solutions to various environmental and geotechnical issues.

Soil testing 

Their soil testing services offer great benefits, from engineering to agriculture. Below, we look at some of the reasons why soil testing is of crucial importance.

1. Determining the composition of soil

For agricultural purposes like crop cultivation, knowing the soil components is very important. Different plants require different minerals. There are also certain general components that should be present. With soil testing, it is possible to detect nutritional deficiencies or excessiveness of fertility which may lead to plant toxicity.

2. Determining the fertility level

How suitable is an area of land for planting? To answer this question, Alliance Geotechnical experts apply various procedures to check for important trace minerals as to determine soil concentration. They also check for other things like moisture levels.

3. Soil contamination 

An important aspect of the soil is contamination. Soil contaminants may include both liquid and solid materials which bond with soil particles. Examples of toxic substances include lead, arsenic, and other heavy metals. Sources of such heavy metal contamination may be nearby roads or lead-painted walls. Toxic wastes dumped on a certain land long ago may also be a major source of contaminants. These contaminants may hinder plant growth and become a serious health hazard, especially to pregnant women and children.

Contamination soil testing Sydney involves using a number of on-site and lab processes in determining the presence and concentration of specific toxic substances. Over the years, contamination soil testing Sydney evolved on how it is carried out and Alliance Geotechnical employs the latest tools and practices to achieve accurate results. These results are important in decision-making regarding the use of land, especially for planting.

4. Determining the soil growth potential

Even if results of the test show that the soil is unsuitable for use, it can still be made better. Testing for growth potential means taking into account whatever nutritional deficiencies there are now and present toxicities that may hinder proper soil growth in terms of fertility.

All of the above services provided by Alliance Geotechnical are crucial in ensuring the ideal environment for various uses including human settlement.

Taking Care of the Conveyor Belt

A conveyor belt is the key means through which a conveyor system carries various items from one spot to the next. While they are simple, easy to use, and efficient, a conveyor repair is necessary to prevent catastrophic occurrences and save on future costs.

conveyor repair
conveyor repair

Nowadays, conveyor belts of different layers are manufactured from two types of materials, rubber and PVC. The sealing material used on conveyor belts to prevent spillage is also made from rubber. The conveyor skirting rubber comes in a variety of lengths and thickness to suit any needs. Not only is it flexible, but it is also hard enough to provide resistance on wear-and-tears because of heavy usage. The skirting rubber can also be pre-ordered in the form of skirting strips to fit any conveyor widths or trough angles. As far as the sealing rubber is concerned, the synthetic version tends to last about five times longer than a natural occurring skirting rubber.

The All State Conveyors Company work primarily in Melbourne and Victoria, providing a myriad of services that concerns conveyor repair. The company conducts audits on conveyor belts in various worksites to ensure that they last for the long term. Sometimes it is not easy for the conveyor belt operators to notice any deterioration and thus, the All State Conveyor auditors inspect the belts on their behalf and recommend various options such as preventative repair or conveyor belt removal. The company also offers 24-hour breakdown services to their clients for either type of conveyor belting, installations, removals, skirting, and splicing that typically involves two tables in reducing the overall time taken when conducting a conveyor repair.

For any conveyor belt owners who need fast repairs, products like Fourthane can provide quick solutions. Fourthane is a synthetic rubber, applied on conveyor belts to ‘heal’ the rubber and provide impact resistance. This allows conveyor belt operators to resume using the belts within an hour of applying Fourthane. The Fourthane is in liquid form and therefore, applied to the conveyor belt using a spatula and after which, it restores the rubber cover and patches any damaged portions of the belt.

Any operators of a conveyor belt should always take the maximum caution. Mechanical failures have cost many people their health and their well-being. It is important for all personnel to undergo safety training, safe operating, and repair procedures. Companies such as the Flexible Steel Lacing Company (Flexco), provide online safety programs that maintenance people can use. Some procedures that enhance the safety include rip fastener and clip installations, if the belt is susceptible to tearing; proper cutting and skiving procedures to increase the lifespan of the splice; use of portable belt cutters to enhance precision; proper use of belt cleaners to prolong the life of cleaner blades; and conveyor belt squaring.

Taking care of the conveyor belt is a continuous process. Any owner or operator should take all necessary steps to ensure that the belt is safe for use. Constant inspections and audits ensure that repairs can be done when needed and thus, prolong the life of a conveyor belt.

How To Extend Your Equipment’s Lifespan With High Quality Repairs

HP Printers and photocopy machines are durable and efficient, but even these printers can succumb to relentless printing tasks and the occasional employee rage. Machine thumping and kicking might be good material for office comedies, but in real life it is a common cause of broken office equipment. Thankfully, with good Xerox and HP printer repairs, you can extend the life of your equipment and get your money’s worth on your important business assets.

Finding The Best Photocopy Repair

Printers and photocopy machines are similar in structure and share the same strenuous daily tasks. This is why it’s a wise move to get one provider that offers both photocopier and printer repairs. No other place can beat Sydney in Photocopier repairs, with providers sprouting like mushrooms here and there. However, if you’re a top notch company that relies on your office equipment heavily, no ordinary company would do.

When looking for companies that offer Sydney photocopier repairs, choose one that has an affiliation or partnership with top brands like HP, Xerox, Canon and others. An award or two might be a good idea, and check if any of their technicians has undergone training with top photocopier and printer manufacturers. This is how you know that your printers and photocopy machines will be in good, capable hands.

A Variety of Services

As mentioned above, it’s a good idea to choose a company that can repair most of your office equipment. It is quite confusing and expensive to have one provider for your Sydney Xerox repairs and another for your HP printer repairs. With one provider, you can build a good, long-term working relationship with whichever company you trust the most.

When companies offer a variety of repair services, it means they are versatile, skilled and talented at what they do. With a company like that, you are less likely to encounter a situation wherein they don’t have a solution to your equipment problems. Try to look for companies that offer not only Sydney photocopier repairs, but also maintenance work and part replacements. If you are a large office, make sure to get printer technicians that know how to work with extensive printer to computer network connections and other technical know-how.

Emergency Services

Emergency repair service is a must-have for a business setting. A broken printer or photocopier could mean lost productivity, delays, aggravated clients and lost income. You need a company with prompt response times, and 24/7 services. After all, not all companies work within the usual 9-5 shift. If your company is up and running around the clock, you need repair services that can keep up with you. Learn more about this at http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Printer_(computing).

If something happens to your office equipment and you find that it is beyond repair, your provider must also have a solution for that. Companies that offer reliable HP printer repairs like Global Office Machines, offer more than just emergency services, they offer solutions for office equipment that is beyond repair. You can count on companies like these to find reliable equipment on such short notice. And in the event that you do not have enough cash for a new printer or photocopier, some companies even offer financial terms such as loans so you can immediately get your new equipment, which means less delays in your company’s workflow.

ブランディングとは自分らしさの追求である

ブランディングというと、まだまだ日本ではその重要性が認識されていませんが、今後、企業がグローバル競争の中、勝ち残っていくには必要不可欠なものです。 それは「わが社のイメージカラーは青です」とか「会社のロゴを丸みを帯びた優しいものにしよう」とかいう「イメージ作り」程度の事ではありません。  ブランディング   ブランディングとは、誰もが共有しているその会社「らしさ」を構築することです。アップルを見ればわかるように、言葉にできなくても誰もが「アップルってこうだ」というイメージを持っています。しかも、全世界でアップルの世界観を統一しているのです。製品についても、一番売れそうな形や機能、価格を追い求めるのではなく、「アップルらしい製品」を出すことに意義がある、というスタンスをとっています。   つまり、ブランディングは企業の根幹や経営に関わるものなのです。経営者は、ブランドを壊すと思えば、確実に売り上げを上げると思われる新製品のアイディアを、ボツにする勇気が必要です。一時的にヒット商品を作っても、ブランドを毀損すれば、長期的には経営にとってマイナスとなってしまうからです。それくらい、ブランドは大切なものです。   ただし、それは新製品を作らないということではありません。もしもアップルが、非常にアップルらしい素晴らしい家具を作り出したとしたら、人々はそれを違和感なく受け入れ、欲しがることでしょう。   ブランディングとは、その会社にとって「要となるイメージ」をデザインしていくことです。世の中に広く受け入れられる必要がありますし、社員一人一人が誇りを持てるものである、ということも大切です。それを作ろうとするには、まずは「企業としてどうあるのか」「どうしていくのか」という経営方針をはっきりさせくてはいけません。 http://www.corporate-branding.jp   要となるイメージを決め、それをロゴや制服、製品、店舗などあらゆる部分で形として落とし込んでいくことで、その会社「らしさ」が作られるのです。会社はその「らしさ」の中で、進む道を決めることになります。その意味で、ブランディングとはまさに経営戦略といえるのです。
