This collection of porcelain art in Jingdezhen, the porcelain capital of China is a breath-taking sight of ingenuity – the Sanbao Art Museum!
Sanbao village, a scenic place not far from the Central City of Jingdezhen in China, hosts a nascent, dynamic, porcelain-centric hub with porcelain artists’ studios and porcelain-related industries, causing a highly competitive environment, where it takes great ingenuity and endless efforts to be the best. The relationship between the artists and their creation is sort of romantic, like the feeling of first love: indirect probing, exploring, negotiating and subtle manoeuvring. And the transformation in the pottery kilns is like the process of developing films – full of uncertainties; like the photographers’ having projected their best imaginations onto the films, but results will be unravelled only after the mandatory stint in the dark room!

 

But it is these very risks and uncertainties that mandate detail and delicacy; brain power juxtaposed against a passionate song in the heart… romanticism at its best!

An art museum in this milieu not just builds an interactive space to encourage reciprocal communication between visitors and the space, both emotionally and behaviourally, it inculcates sensitivity and imagination. The museum is a visually linear shape, 150m long, but the visiting flow is nonlinear, with visitors having multiple paths to explore. The purpose is to boost serendipity between people and spaces. Architecture creates the atmosphere with which visitors have personal connections. Walls, the most important part at shaping exhibition space and atmosphere, are made of rammed earth to offer a poetic feeling. The main passage is a long transparent space, 100m; around which rammed-earth walls, 4m high, grow from earth.

Major materials used in building the museum, such as rammed earth, titanium zinc panels and travertine, will be eroded by time. This process of erosion is like the fermentation of wine, time gives its unique flavour. In addition, Sanbao village naturally produces unique soil, slightly red in colour, so the continuous loam walls are built with local clay, delivering a certain familiarity and tension.

Experiences vary, when visitors walk through different areas, attracted by the outstretched eaves after the woods area. The sound from the creeks relaxes, whilst what lies ahead leads visitors further into a cryptic but joyful world. Every tour becomes a story between visitors and architecture – a mix of discovery, expectation, waiting, anxiety, disappointment and joy.

Take a Leap Into the Unknown: 4 Exciting Bungee Jump Techniques!

Take a Leap Into the Unknown: 4 Exciting Bungee Jump Techniques!

For many, a bungee jump is a once-in-a-lifetime, adrenaline-filled activity that you’ll remember forever – and you’ll forever be able to tell people about your jump! There are many ways to skin a cat, and some of these bungee jump techniques will make your jump even more memorable. Whether you’re a seasoned jumper or will only take the plunge once in your life, there is a thrilling technique out there for you.
Feel Like You Can Fly Techniques!

 

The Swallow Dive is one of the most popular jump styles in use today, and for good reason! Especially beloved by adrenaline seekers, you have to take a big running jump off the platform with your arms stretched out as wide as possible (like a swallow). This will let you soar through the sky to the ground below. There will be a huge adrenaline rush as you feel like you’re flying through the air… and as an added bonus, as the cord begins stretching you will be pointing downwards – perfect for a smooth and easy deceleration.

Be aware: if the body harness you’re kitted out with has a front cord attachment, ensure you twist 180 degrees so by the time the cord tightens out you’re facing upwards. Don’t worry, your instructor will know all this! But the more you know before your jump, the more relaxed you’ll be before the big event.

The Bat Drop is a little trickier than the swallow dive, and much more daring! For this jump style you’ll have to be positioned hanging upside down (!!!) on the edge of the platform. Someone else will need to be holding your feet, and once they release you you’ll shoot off like a bat or vampire into the darkness of the night!

The Back Dive is another jump which is considered to be a little more difficult. You’ll really need to put your all into launching off the platform so that when you’re at the end of your fall, your head will be pointing straight down. Just like the swallow dive, be sure to be facing upwards at the end of your jump if you happen to be using a front-connected body harness.

The Elevator is a technique you’ll definitely have seen somewhere before. You simply step off the platform with your feet pointing down at the ground, and when you reach the end of the bungee you’ll be automatically flipped the right way round.

Top tip: only do the Elevator if you have access to a rubber (Kiwi/ Euro) cord to avoid hurting yourself and doing your ankles some serious harm!

Jump Safely, Jump Insured

Whether you’re going for the jump of a lifetime or plan to tick off all of our suggested bungee jump techniques, make sure your travel insurance covers you. Let’s Go Insure offers cover for one or multiple jumps, and our friendly staff are on hand to help you with getting covered for all of your daredevil antics!

First wooden free-form houses Museum of Bread!

First wooden free-form houses Museum of Bread!

COOP HIMMELB(L)AU designed PANEUM – Wunderkammer des Brotes is the first wooden building in free form!
Meticulously planned, this customer information centre and event forum for the company Backaldrin in Asten, Austria, is an iconic structure comprising two elements: a box-shaped plinth building with foyer and event rooms that can be used for a variety of presentations, receptions or workshops for up to 120 visitors and the Wunderkammer des Brotes (Museum of Bread), a two-storey freeform exhibition area floating on top. The square base building shows a cast-in-place concrete façade while the rounded wood structure of the museum is clad with stainless steel shingles.

 

A centrally chiselled circular atrium is at once the cynosure of all eyes as it is flanked by a robust spiral staircase that invites visitors to pause awhile and take in the exhibited items from various perspectives. The stair provides access to the two exhibition levels, where the objects are displayed with the help of walls, tables, and cabinets that are integrated into the architecture. It further allows for striking vertical displays that take on a chandelier-like appearance, adding on to the visual appeal of the commanding building. The raw aesthetic of the interior is augmented by its self-supporting wood shell with its layers of cross-laminated timber and the natural light that filters in from above the atrium. This method of construction enables the realization of the free form and the high degree of prefabrication with 3D CNC technology that is precision-driven and cuts valuable construction time. It is a step into the future of construction; as Design Principal, COOP HIMMELB(L)AU, Wolf D. Prix says, “3D plotting, 3D milling and building with robots – that is the future of building.”

Alertness from XiaoMi Success, see lighting industry

Alertness from XiaoMi Success, see lighting industry

LED lighting Manufacture development A recent article said millet destroy “Chinese manufacturing”, is the punchline: “when the other side of the United States through the knowledge economy strides to promote economic recovery, we are thinking of the Internet bubble hysterical carnival.” The author is cursed by the evil spirit “the Internet thinking” the trouble to the whole manufacturing industry “blindly, flashy without substance” impetuous environment, while millet company is using the Internet thinking mode of walking in the forefront of the typical success, the lighting inside completely ready to hook up. The LED lighting industry needs an example like this to drive the entire market.
However, in the Internet age, millet success is a pioneer or martyrs, it is difficult to distinguish clearly. Millet’s success and see, just four and a half years on the global mobile phone supplier third throne, the valuation is jumped to $40 billion, becoming by far the fastest growing mobile phone brand, has gone global, to challenge Apple’s courage and determination. The lighting companies, all eager to replicate this success in their own body, but many industry insiders said that at the present stage of development of the “O2O” mode is not very mature, the concept of O2O is far greater than the actual operation, select the “O2O” model can be described as lighting companies, opportunities and challenges coexist!

 

It is a reminder that people need not be brainwashed in lighting, not impetuous wind industry become dizzy with success attitude is the pros and cons of time to talk about the effect of millet success.

First, the potential energy of the case is a little empty

This year the traditional economic bland, most of the traditional enterprises to dafanshenzhang hopes in the transformation and upgrading of the Internet. Many traditional enterprise boss cornered, to find a breakthrough, they have set up the new media department, playing micro-blog WeChat from the media, fans, etc. to engage in social economy, a lot of costly, less effective? Can taste the sweetness through the development of new media, the traditional gene in most of the enterprises due to the ingrained, trying to do new media after a period of time, finally in front of KPI assessment heroic dead ends.

The reason is very simple, the Internet thinking is a proposition on the “road”, many enterprises as “technology” to use. Millet company as a a enterprise, pioneered the use of the new economic model has been successful, with the example of potential energy, is a trendy avant-garde “business model” and “flexible marketing play” shapes such as: pre electricity, hunger marketing, channel control, fans economy become a new play, cross Model company, by many enterprises learn to imitate. For a time, a nationwide upsurge of millet, all walks of life are learning millet, various business school professors and training professors are taking millet as an example. In this example the potential of millet, wearing gold and silver, without any input from the media lies in the author’s works, science and technology media headlines and netizens talk at leisure. These are LED enterprises do not have the resources, we take what compared with millet?

Many LED business owners may wonder, why millet, carved sirloin and Huang Taiji, three squirrels and other enterprises, can be successful, and we can’t just be? Because most of the successful cases of stimulated nerve, did not translate into actual operational measures. Taste good, stumbled on the back, take a impetuous psychological speculation play commercial feasible? The so-called gehangrugeshan, LED lighting is not fast consumer products, more need is the product of the precipitation!

Two, pre purchase electricity supplier addiction

When the millet company was founded, in the face of a relatively heavy hardware industry, congenital lack of confidence, lack of capital investment, supply chain negotiation ability is poor, the risk of investment mistakes of bankruptcy is too big, how to do? Millet was through the media for preheating, fans online community forum training, according to a predetermined amount of fans then, quantitative orders to suppliers, then batch sales. The advantage of this is light assets, less investment risk, bad is addictive. Arguably, millet is now strong capital, not bad money, but millet still used the “pre supplier of the play, especially in the new release will adopt this model, like millet 4 of these new market demand products will do. Why, this is illogical ah, millet 4 sold so well, not to fully open to buy, banzhebanyan is?

Because the pre purchase electricity supplier can be the consumer’s purchase time delineated at the same time point, so as to create a second, 1 minutes 500 thousand sold out of the “expl

5 Common Behavior Problems on pet parrots (and how to fix them)

5 Common Behavior Problems on pet parrots (and how to fix them)

For any pet owner, it’s important to recognize when pets display behavior issues and know how to resolve the issue.

And, just like pets such as cats and dogs can err, birds parrot can show various troublesome behavior and cause frustration for the owner.

However, there are some behavioral issues displayed by parrots that are more reported than others.

Read on to find out what behavioral issues should be considered in your pet parrot and what you can do to improve it.

1. Biting
Biting is probably the most common problem seen in pet parrots, and this is often the result of how the owners approach and treat their pets.

If you approach your pet parrot with fear, will feel this and respond with a bite. And if you use your hands to expel your bird or cause damage, he will learn to associate your hand with something bad. The parrots and other birds have no hands to defend themselves so they use their beak.

Unfortunately, not all birds are treated as well as those from XtreemParrotlets and may act out of fear after harassment. So, even if you always behave well toward your pet parrot, it might react like this because of how the previous treatment.

The best way to overcome the problem of biting is to approach the parrot calmly and just use your hands in a friendly way, never for rejection or punishment.

Grab your tray when it does not bite you, and avoid reacting while doing so. If you scream or yelp it will strengthen your behavior and your parrot will continue to bite you.

2. Plucking Fur
This is a serious problem approaching three out of ten birds that suffer at some point, although there are many different causes for it.

A poor diet can cause brittle or brittle feathers so make sure to supply your pet parrot with a variety of nutritious foods.

Lack of light can also cause parrots to smear themselves. Put your bird cage in a sunny place at home so your parrot gets daily sunshine and vitamin D.

Picking feathers can be a result of boredom. Let your parrot be entertained with toys and make sure the cage is big enough to move.

Finally, picking feathers is often a sign of depression or loneliness. Spend a lot of time with your parrot and pay a lot of attention, especially if you’ve just spent time away from home or someone in the household has left.

3. Shouting
While screaming and voicing is common to most birds, especially at dawn and dusk, an improper scream is a clear problem.

Like biting, you have to ignore the shouts or sounds you do not like and avoid seeing or going to your parrot when you’re screaming.

But, make a point of benefit to your pet with attention and praise when stopping screaming. Slowly wait longer before giving attention so your parrot learns not to scream.

Yelling can be a result of boredom or stress. So, to eliminate the cause of the problem, make sure your parrot is stimulated properly with toys and lots of human interaction.

And just as talking or writing down our feelings can help us cope with stress, teaching your parrot to talk can help express its feelings.

4. Destructive Behavior
Destructive behavior in parrots such as making a cage hood or biting furniture is often a sign that your pet is not receiving enough mental stimulation.

Be sure to spend a lot of time with your parrot, talk to him and put it into your daily activities, such as family meals and watching television.

Get a new toy for your parrot to prevent boredom and talk regularly with your parrot and praise, especially as he refrains from destructive behavior.

5. Be Territorial
Territorial birds will react to or attack anyone who occupies certain areas, such as furniture, claiming it as a private territory.

Birds can sometimes be territorial as a result of hormonal changes. However, your parrot vigilance may be a sign that he is unhappy with his surroundings and uncomfortable with you as you wish.

Bonding technique is like sharing

Launching Commerce – Professional Backup Requirements

Starting your own business is a hiccup. You hope to nurture something through your own efforts; fulfill dreams; and become your own boss. For most new business people, their initial focus is on the product or service they will provide; their location; and their marketing design (including “seeing” their business).
But always forgetting is the need for good professional advice. One of the first things everyone needs to do is get professional advice. The three main areas of advice needed in any new business are:

• Constitution

• Settlement

• Insurans

In the beginning, where the money may be tight, it is interesting to circumvent rather than spend money on a peguam, akauntan or insurance broker or ejen. Often the idea is to suspend the shopping mall for this professional until the trade fair exchanges. Even though the filming of kos is so tempted, it is also a mistake. The solemn professional advice is the reshaping of the future of the business enterprise.
Having a third or three professional advisors at the beginning of your business venture has advantages. First of all, it means that everyone knows your business from scratch and can help guide it from the start. Second, they have the opportunity to work as a troop. Often advice by a professional will affect what others do.
But while hiring a professional may be a concern, there are several ways to subtract the boarding. First, talk to them in front of them and find out what they are paying for their rituals. Secondly, see if you can get a “fixed fee” offer (in proportion to the bill based on the time it takes). Third, make sure the professional has relevant experience. This may be very important with regard to legislation, wherein the peguam tends to focus only on one or two areas of practice. Dealing with a lawyer who practices corporate and commercial law will be easier than a person who does not (and may need to work around issues that an expert might know – an investigation you may need to pay).
Finally – educate yourself! You do not have to be an expert, but doing a basic investigation before talking to a professional is important. For example, before seeking legal advice on merging, see principles on establishing the organization including some general issues to deal with and alternatives. It will help to cultivate your questions and provide clearer direction, making the work of the rapport easier and faster. Certain web pages may provide you with a cheap educational tool that can save your life when dealing with your lawyer.
