In the past, householders have looked at repairs that involved joining metal back to metal or to other materials and accepted they’d just have to go out and buy a replacement and then pay a handyman to fit it. Continue reading Don’t replace – repair. And here’s how
It’s all very well having a cutting-edge website that looks great and offers clear and informative content about your products and services, but is it actually racking up a healthy number of visitors? Even more important than the visitor numbers is the conversion rate. If most of your visitors are clicking on to your site, stopping for a few seconds and then clicking off elsewhere, then your website simply isn’t doing its job properly.

The first match of the 2015 Rugby World Cup took place on September 18 at Twickenham. The game featured host nation England taking on Fiji, the initial encounter in the so-called Group of Death. Due to England progressing from their qualifying pool, they had a realistic chance of going all the way.
Of the twenty nations that competed at the Rugby World Cup, the eventual winners New Zealand were the obvious and predicted favourites.
Ranked the number one test nation in the world for an amazing ten years, New Zealand remain the team to beat at the next tournament. As reported in The Telegraph, the defending champions have only lost two of the 42 tests they have played since their triumph on home soil in 2011.
Champions in 1995 and 2007, the Springboks were always strong contenders. Despite only reaching the quarter-finals the last time around, South Africa had the best overall winning percentage of any team in world cup history. Of the 29 matches they have competed in, the Springboks have won 25, which equates to a remarkable 86 percent winning average.
They were not at their best but the Wallabies can never be ruled out when it comes to the Rugby World Cup. So who knows what will happen next time. Just recently, they dropped to their lowest ever ranking of six, although they have since displaced Wales to move back up one spot to fifth position.
As noted in the Daily Telegraph, Ireland have never progressed beyond the quarter-final stage of any previous World Cup. However, after back-to-back Six Nations triumphs, next time the men in green could go all the way. How the team progresses is likely to depend heavily on Johnny Sexton, one of the world’s best fly-halves.
No amount of rugby drills, as recommended, can perhaps prepare England for the pressure that awaits them in any event. As the host nation in the last world cup, the expectation was huge and they were desperate not to disappoint the home crowds.
No matter what the outcome, think of the poor men before and after each match whose job it is to maintain the pitches, luckily for them they are often seen on hand propelled petrol lawn mowers sold by businesses such as http://www.chiffchaffoutdoor.com/tiger-tm4016hp-40cm-16-hand-propelled-petrol-lawn-mower.html
At least I suppose were not looking at a game from 50 years ago when there would have been a lot of tired men frantically working day and night, shears in hand, sweat in the other, desperate to get the grass ready.
The age old complaint about ladies not looking their best in the morning is a complete myth. Who says you can’t wake up to a new day feeling and looking fabulous? Sometimes all it takes is a quick confidence boost. This doesn’t mean having to run to the bathroom and secretly slap on some makeup before jumping back into bed again, but by wearing something that’s going to make you look and feel fabulous.
In the same way that wearing a nice outfit can lift your mood and self-esteem during the day, wearing something flattering and comfortable to bed can make you feel like a complete goddess. So, let’s take a closer look at a few bedroom fashion tips shall we?
Wearing the right kind of lingerie can make a massive difference to your body shape AND your confidence. It can slim you in at the waist and highlight your curves in such a way that anything you wear on top will look flattering. Wearing the wrong bra size on the other hand, can have serious negative effects on your overall look and even your health. You may experience back, shoulder and even neck pain as a result of wearing an ill fitted or poor quality bra. Instead, invest in luxury lingerie such as the gorgeous Prima Donna Deauville Bra from http://www.orchidlingerie.co.uk/pd0161810-prima-donna-deauville-bra.
If you would like some extra cover, or perhaps it’s the middle of winter and things are getting a little…nippy, you may wish to opt for a short silk robe. They can look incredibly classy and many feature laced edging for that extra touch of detail.
Nightdresses are not just for old ladies. They have made a huge comeback this year and are definitely a bedroom must-have. If you prefer, you could opt for a racy camisole instead. Many women wear their camisoles underneath their regular clothes. Cosmopolitan claims that a blazer over your camisole is the perfect match, making you look and feel ultra-feminine.
Make it a Surprise
If you’re not a fan of lingerie, you may wish to hold off until a special occasion arises. Perhaps it’s your husband’s birthday, or your anniversary is coming up around the corner. According to All Women Talk, keeping lingerie for special occasions can make it a lot more special. Of course, this doesn’t mean that you have to be in a relationship to benefit from the silky touch of a gorgeous chemise. Confident women “don’t need a man”, so don’t be afraid to wear whatever you like to bed, even if it’s just to get some much needed rest after a long day in the office!
Okay, so there’s no such thing as free electricity – of course there isn’t. However on 11th May this year something extraordinary happened in Germany, when industrial electricity customers found themselves actually earning money for the energy they were using.
Widely reported in the press, this unusual situation came about for a number of reasons.
87% Renewable Energy Production
At one peak point over the weekend of May 11th, Germany was able to meet 87% of its domestic energy needs from renewable sources such as solar, wind and hydro. Even for Germany, which aims to generate its entire electricity supply from renewables no later than 2050, this is an unusually high figure.
This peak in production was due to an exceptionally sunny and windy day providing ideal conditions for the country’s solar and wind generation facilities.
Germany, of course, is not alone in its quest to increase the use of renewables. In Northern Ireland solar panels are becoming more common as companies install solar panels in Northern Ireland to generate more green electricity there as well.
Reduced Demand for Nuclear and Fossil-Fuel Power
This peak in renewables led in turn to a reduction in demand for power generated from nuclear and fossil-fuel powered generating stations. The grid needs only so much electricity and, with the demand being met from renewable sources, there was an understandable desire to shut down older, more polluting and more expensive to run power stations.
Unfortunately, these generating stations, particularly nuclear, oil and coal powered plants, are not able to react as rapidly to changes in demand for their power as the peaks in renewable production increase. This situation leads to an excess in supply and potential overloads in the power grid as, quite literally, there is more electricity being put into the grid than is being taken out of it by consumers.
The Solution: Negative Pricing
In common with all countries, Germany’s national grid solves this problem by reducing prices in periods of low demand and high production so that more electricity is used. In extreme situations, the grid may even cut pricing for high-volume users to below-zero, effectively paying them to use electricity, to protect the system from damage due to overloading. This action helps industrial users who find that the more electricity they use, the more they earn.
Senior figures in the logistics industry came together at a Chartered Institute of Logistics and Transport (CILT) event recently to discuss how transport must become streamlined more rapidly by the effective integration of technology. Members of the education, automotive and 3PL (logistic services outsourcers) sectors were present to discuss how technology can make the management of goods more efficient.
