18

New York’s ICFF and HD EXPO fairs are the two main US showcases in the furniture sector, and have served as an important meeting point for Spanish manufacturers and North American opinion formers.

Madrid, Spain, May 31, 2013 – New York’s ICFF and HD EXPO fairs are the two main US showcases in the furniture sector, and have served as an important meeting point for Spanish manufacturers and North American opinion formers.

The United States is still in love with Spanish design, and this was clearly evident this month at the two most important fairs in the sector. While Spanish sales in 2012 exceeded 3.191 billion, exports between January and February 2013 rose by around 14% with respect to the same period a year earlier.

The international success of Spanish interior design and home living sector companies has resulted from the country’s firm decision to expand into new markets, with the United States being one of the most important. It is the seventh leading importer of Spanish tiles, the eighth top buyer of furniture, and the sixth biggest customer for -made in Spain- home textiles. The goods sold by Spanish companies are known for their variety and wealth of styles, as well as the large number of comprehensive furnishing projects being undertaken by Spanish firms all over the world.

Some 13 Spanish companies attended ICFF in New York through ICEX, which also organised different Spanish design shows in the Big Apple, with the famous Bergdorf Goodman store showing off glamorous designs from the studios of Marset and Vondom, two Spanish companies at the cutting edge of interiors design. Spanish design from Wanda Barcelona was also on display at the W Hotel.

Meanwhile, the HD Expo in Las Vegas, an event for top-level companies in the contemporary living design segment, was attended by 17 furniture, lighting, textile, flooring, bathroom and interior design accessories companies. This was a great success, since the fair is attended every year by specialist visitors including interior designers, decorators, builders, architecture studios, as well as large hotel, catering and restaurant groups.

Small Wind Turbines boosts in-house energy production

20

While large wind mills that are installed in clusters at wind farms produce energy on a massive scale, small wind turbines produce energy at lower levels. Unlike large wind turbines, this technology helps produce wind energy in the low to medium paced wind conditions and is developed to promote in-house energy production among households, farms and small businesses.

Wind energy has long been exploited as a significant alternative source of power generation in the country through large wind mills. But, they require high speed winds to produce electricity. In this scenario, small wind turbines technology has surfaced as a remarkable development in the wind energy sector as it generates power in low and medium paced wind. This technology, therefore, is ideal for country like India where majority of regions have low to medium paced winds.

Small Wind Turbines (SWT), though in its infancy stage, is set to evolve and grow large as it taps full potential of wind in generating sustainable, economical and environment friendly electricity. Also known as Vertical Axis Aero Generators, they generate clean and emission-free electricity enough to meet the power requirements of households, farms, schools, hospitals and small businesses. Moreover, it is also ideal for rural and remote areas where there is no electricity or the need for power is not so high.

Small turbines can produce up to 100 KW of electricity and are primarily designed for residential, institutional and commercial applications having energy requirements under this limit. The technology is gradually gaining popularity among people as they can generate their own power in-house reducing their electricity needs from conventional sources and thus bringing down their energy bills. Moreover, it helps reduce carbon footprint in the atmosphere with decreased dependence on conventional energy sources that use fossil-fuel and petroleum to generate power.

Small wind power systems come in various sizes that range from 20 W to 15 KW with a capacity to generate power ranging from 400 W to 15 KW. For example, a 20 W turbine can generate around 400 watts of electricity which can be used to charge batteries. 3-15 KW turbines can produce power enough to meet energy requirement of a home. While, a small commercial setup with higher energy requirements may need turbines with higher capacity that can generate around 100 KW of electricity. Indo German Energy, which has introduced various wind turbine models (1, 2.5, 5 and 10 KW) are among the few manufacturers in the country to also produce small wind turbines with higher capacity of up to 50 KW.

According to the industry experts, the market for small wind turbines shall see manifold growth in the decade to come. And, India shall lead the growth story by leading the world in production of small wind turbines.

Be a VIP at home. Use your best stuff every day

My grandmother bought me a set of 6 china cups and saucers for my 21st birthday. Now I’m 50 but those cups and saucers have been used almost daily. Sure, I lost two cups at some point but it doesn’t really matter. Those objects were given for me to love and enjoy them and I’ve had nearly thirty years worth of enjoyment out of them. Of course I could have kept them safe in bubble-wrap at the back of the cupboard but what would be the point of that? Most of us will happily use supermarket glassware and keep the cut-glass in the cupboard. Why? If you have precious items that you want to use but are worried about them being lost or destroyed consider the following: -Take a really great photograph of the object. If you lose the object you’ll have the photograph forever. -Make sure items are properly insured. -Display them somewhere safe (in a lit cabinet? In a jewellery box?). -Be sensible about their use – don’t give your best cut glasses to the children (although I used to … and my children never broke any). -Don’t put your favourite items in the dishwasher or the washing machine (wash by hand) … I’ll admit I stick most things in the dishwasher but that’s just me! However, once you have decided which precious items to keep, clean them carefully and look after them. -Make sure your antique jewellery has a safety chain fitted (a good jeweller will do this for you). Don’t wear that precious necklace until you get the clasp fixed etc (be sensible about it). Then, once you’ve taken precautions, use and enjoy the items that you love. Granddad would have wanted you to have worn his gold pocket watch occasionally or at least have it placed in a beautiful display box where you can enjoy it every day.

Housing Grants for Single Mothers

1

Maslow’s hierarchy of needs states that in order to survive there are four basic needs that all human beings need for developing healthy psychologically; food, water, warmth, and shelter. For a single mother, these four things can be hard to provide when dealing with a struggling economy. That is why there are ways to help single mothers like yourself get the help you need in providing adequate shelter for your family. No one should worry about where there next bed will be and if they’ll have shelter before the next storm. >

Habitat for Humanity

The Habitat for Humanity is a form of a housing grant for single mothers. Unlike usual grants it is not in the form of money. Instead it is in the form of a home that is built by a group of volunteers and the family who will use the home. To qualify for this form of housing assistance you must meet certain financial criteria. You must also be willing to volunteer to help build a future Habitat for Humanity home for another needy family or single parent in the future. Contact your local housing authority or the department of social services for more information on the Habitat for Humanity program.

The Family Unification Program

Sometimes families become separated due to the inability of the single mother to provide adequate and safe housing for her children. This doesn’t mean that the children have been taken away only that they may be staying with relatives temporarily. The Family Unification Program provides a grant voucher to parents who are in need of help in purchasing or renting safe housing for themselves and their family. This program is available through HUD, or the Housing and Urban Development Association. The program is only available to people whom the department of social services have deemed in great need of safe housing. A lack of safe housing must be the only reason preventing the parent from having their child or children living with them.

Housing Choice Vouchers

Although these vouchers are not technically grants they work in the same way. As a federal program, the Housing Choice Voucher provides assistance to single mothers as well as low-income families to help with acquiring affordable housing grants for single mothers. With this program a landlord is paid a subsidy of the rent for the mother. The rest is paid for by the mother.

Affordable housing shouldn’t be stressful. Providing a home should be something everyone can do.

Stacy Montes is a single mom of 3 who writes for the website, Single Mom Financial Help. On the website there are many articles and resources for single mothers, such as how to get grants for single mothers.

What To Look For When Choosing An Estate Agents In London

12

So you’ve decided to sell your London property. You might well be expecting to make a fair profit as the average prices of 1 bedroom places are above 250,000 and 3 bedroom properties attract as much as 3,000,000. You may also anticipate a quick sale, such is the level of competition for homes in this part of England. However, you may also realize the necessity of employing good quality estate agent for success on the property front. Here are a few of the factors that you should consider when hiring home-selling experts down south.

Feedback From People You Trust

It is definitely worth asking your London-based friends and family members whether they have had any positive or negative experiences with estate agents. If they can’t provide any feedback then take a look at the online forums and well-known review websites. You should be able to considerably reduce the list of potential agents.

Level Of Experience

You’ll discover some estate agents that have been in business for a long time and developed a great understanding of the local market. You will also want to keep a look out for the local companies that specialize in selling properties just like yours. They should be able to provide a realistic valuation and market your home to the right types of prospective buyers.

Turnover Rates

If you have a read of the statistics on leading property websites then you’ll discover that some estate agents have a far higher turnover rate than others. This statistic refers to the speed at which properties are sold. It is highly important to take this into account, as it will probably effect the time taken to purchase a brand new place. You should also consider the overall cancellation rate, which tells you how many sales fall through.

The Estate Agent Contract

Your chosen estate agent will ask you to sign a contract before they begin to market and negotiate with potential buyers. You should have a read of the fine print and pay particular attention to details regarding contract termination if you aren’t entirely happy with the service provided. You should also find out what happens if you manage to secure a sale without the help of the agent.

All Important Legalities

The estate agents should give you all of the relevant information regarding the legal procedures that have to be carried out. They may well employ solicitors, who provide guidance regarding the sales agreements and property information forms, which must be signed off by the buyer and seller. They should also ensure the transfer of money upon successful completion of a sale.

Riches And The Garden Of Eden

9

Starting with the disclaimer that this is a purely secular set of observations having nothing to do with religion, I would like to bypass all the theological controversy and bigoted opinions of those who should know better with the assertion that something actually ‘did go wrong’ within the human psyche, and this schism, which undeniably destroyed a pre-existing harmonious and joyous relationship with nature, happened precisely with the concurrence of agriculture.

And it is agriculture I would like to focus the blame on, for if money is the root of all evil, then agriculture is the root of all money. It is true, is it not, that agriculture is the harbinger of civilization? Therefore, whatever civilization has bequeathed to us ultimately can be found in the implementation of agriculture. That is to say that literally- language, the mastery of fire, tool making, just to name a few technologies- have only a small role in the development and rise of civilization. On the other hand, civilization would be impossible without agriculture. (By the way, ‘civilization’ by its root roughly just means ‘urbanization’.)

When heard, the word civilization is generally received with a positive connotation, but in fact civilization is also directly responsible for the greatest man-made horrors upon this earth that we have ever seen. It is responsible for mega wars, genocide, and perhaps most tragically, thousands of years of mass slavery.

Another facet that one might explore about agriculture is that while it tends to feed masses of humans with a monotonous diet of food of dubious nutritious value, at the same time it destroys nature (or the garden if one prefers). But most importantly the advent of agriculture soon resulted in societies where 80 to 90 percent of the population became slaves, 10 percent warriors, a tiny percent scholars and architects, and the tiniest fraction the owners and rulers. That it is a fact of history but my question is: have things really changed?

A’bad apparel park 27 garment makers to get land

8

Over two dozen garment manufacturers in Ahmedabad can finally weave their export plans. In all, 27 companies, mostly Ahmedabad-based, will soon be allotted land in the Ahmedabad Apparel Park, the special economic zone (SEZ) promoted by Gujarat Industrial Development Corporation (GIDC). Sources familiar with the development said these 27 companies have been selected on the basis of their export performance in the last three years and other criteria. Surprisingly, applications of three major textile players – Jindal, Chiripal’s Nandan Exim and Soma Textiles – have not been considered by the development committee. Sources said Jindal’s application was turned down since the company had submitted a -wrong- balance-sheet. -With the land allotment completed and customs formalities almost done, we expect the SEZ to start production within 8-9 months,- a senior GIDC officer told TOI. Among the 27 companies to be allotted land, eight are from Mumbai and one from New Delhi.wholesale apparel manufacturers Maxwell Industries of Mumbai is so far the biggest investor in the apparel park with proposed investment of Rs 35 crore. The total garment exports from this apparel park are expected to be to the tune of Rs 4,000 crore once it is fully functional. In all, 51 companies had applied for plots in this park, which has been a roller coaster ride for the GIDC. Earlier, it was the Ambika Mills land on which it has come up that became a legal hassle and later an issue pertaining to a corporation road passing through it, which delayed the project. apparel manufacturers india Besides these reasons, this project got entangled in the recent national political fracas over acquisition of agriculture land for SEZs, despite there being no issue of farmland involved.apparel manufacturer The delay in notifying this SEZ had also prompted Chief Minister Narendra Modi to intervene and write to Union commerce minister Kamal Nath for expediting the process. There are 44 plots varying between 1,000 sq m and 3,000 sq m in size in this park. The GIDC has developed the road and other infrastructure over 20 hectares of land in this park.
