Want some *good* surprise entertainment? Well here it is!

I had my fair share of really bad entertainment, most of the times at (at least!) three recent weddings I’ve been to and then on a bunch of holiday parties with my job.

The “entertainment” that I had the misfortune to witness had been truly awful.

The thing is, when the music is just bad at  such an event, whether it’s a wedding or a party, this can bring down the entire event.

The strange thing is that some folks don’t hesitate to spend their entire life savings on things like a wedding, where they may spend a fortune alone on the food and whatever else comes with it. Well, I’ve never been one who had been much for super-expensive weddings. But if you are already spending your money on a single day in your life, then you should spend it wisely. From what I have seen, people for some reason I will skimp when it comes to the musical entertainment.

So there you have flower bouquets costing as much as a small home, but then they hired some student as a DJ for the night. Except that the guy or gal of course doesn’t really have much of a clue, let’s not mention that he or she will in all likelihood also have a quite awful taste in music.

The most fun at the wedding I had just last year, at Maribel’s and John’s wedding in Nottingham. What made it so good in my opinion was that they had the Singing Waiters, which are one of the top surprise entertainers in the UK. Unlike some poor DJ, the Singing Waiters are always trying to get everyone involved in the show. Well, you can imagine what happens if they pull someone up on the stage of the really little bit tipsy. Let’s just say we had a hell of a lot of fun! I can highly recommend the Singing Waiters if you want to book someone for a wedding or your next budgetary!

What Is Video Fire Detection?

Video fire detection is a new technology that tremendously adds to fire safety.

To understand why is this, it may help if we quickly explain how your fire detection systems work.

In previous times, the most prevalent form of fire detection had been with smoke detectors. These pretty common devices do however have at least one significant drawback, this is the limited range and when they can be used. Due to the way how the work, smoke detectors can only detect fires inside buildings since their function relies on being installed in the vicinity of fire respective the smoke from it. This makes smoke detectors useless for many other locations in particular for the outdoors and for monitoring large spaces.

Video fire detection is fundamentally different in the way how it works. Essentially, a fire camera as a video camera which contains advanced software that analyses the video to detect fires. This happens in real time with only minimal delay. Advanced fire cameras can detect flame or smoke from a video anywhere from 10 to 15 seconds after it appeared. What’s more, since these fire detection systems are not relying to be placed near a potential fire, they can also detect fires from a distance. This makes them suitable for many types of locations where fire detection in the past had been challenging if not entirely impossible.

Video fire detection is increasingly employed in many types of locations that can range from industrial complexes to shopping malls and has now become the fire detection method of choice especially outdoors. In recent times however, there are also becoming increasingly popular among private homeowners who use video fire detection systems to add more fire safety to properties.

 

Working Out At Home Vs. In a Gym

Thanks to the wonders of the Internet, folks who want to work out and do something for health and fitness these days don’t need to leave their home.

There is a plethora of fitness and workout videos to find on YouTube and other video sites or you could find a myriad of exercise routines perfectly suited for any type of purpose.

Whether you want to lose weight, want to build some muscles or want to strengthen your abs, rest assured there is the right video on the Internet that you can follow and then do your exercises conveniently at home any time you want.

On the other hand, rather than doing exercise routines at home, going to a fitness gym can have several advantages.

One of them, even if it’s not obvious at first, can be the social aspect if you meet like-minded folks in a fitness studio. Many times, when you can do your exercises together with others, it can be motivating and last but not least also be a lot of fun.

One other advantage of fitness studios can be that you should be able to find a qualified person for help and advise, something that is especially important if you happen to be be new to exercise routines and don’t know where to start. You can simply ask the staff about the right routines or how to use of certain types of equipment.

Better Learning With Ergonomic Furniture

ergonomic furniture benefitsErgonomics, in simplified terms, is the science on how to make things better suited and easier to use for us humans.

And nowhere can this be more important than if we are talking about furniture.

Ergonomic furniture causes less strain and less pain even when we need to work for extended hours.

Working with equipment such as computers or even simple tasks such as writing can go much better when we take advantage of furniture that can be adjusted in multiple ways.

During work we won’t have to bend, the screen will always be at the right  height without  having to look up or down and there will be less strain on our spine since the back is always optimally supported.

With less strain and pain comes also more motivation along with better concentration and the ability to focus. And this is why quality ergonomic chairs and ergonomics desks are likewise e beneficial for learning.

It is good to know that increasingly more schools and workplaces in the UK today know about the importance of ergonomics. But ergonomic furniture should also be on your list if you’re thinking about getting furniture for your own home such as your home office or your children’s study.

With ergonomic furniture you will have numerous benefits not only for your physical health and overall well-being. Because of that and the reasons mentioned above,  ergonomic chairs and ergonomic desks are always a good investment you should look into.

For more information on modern office furniture and their benefits I recommend you see ergonomic chairs. There is also a helpful Wiki page on ergonomics on Wikipedia.

Glasgow School of Art Fire Could Have Been Averted With Modern Fire Suppression System

This past May, a severe fire destroyed parts of Glasgow’s School of Art and with it its entire library. What is ironic is that the school planned to put in place a new fire suppression system this coming summer.

Experts are now debating whether the new fire system in-place would have prevented major damage with most of them agreeing that the new system would have enhanced the fire safety measures in the school significantly.

The article at http://www.bbc.com/news/uk-scotland-glasgow-west-27564239 gives more details about the fire which broke out at the school one month ago. About 200 firefighters were involved, with 16 appliances at the scene at the height of the operation.
