If you are considering installing new ceiling lights in any room in your home there are certain things that need to be considered before you do. Below we take a look at just what these things are to make sure that when the time comes for you to buy an LED ceiling light in Singapore for example that you choose the right one.

The first thing you need to consider is what type of function you want your LED ceiling light to perform. There are three functions such lighting can perform these are task, accent and ambience.

When it comes to task lighting this is designed to provide sufficient light to a particular area where a task like reading a book or preparing food is carried out. As for accent lighting this is purely there for decorative purposes and will be installed to help say enhance a certain feature or item within a room. As for ambient lighting you would be using this to provide soft lighting in a room to help complement certain activities carried out in that room such as watching TV or when entertaining guests.

Once you know what function you want your LED ceiling light to perform you now need to decide where the light is going to be positioned. Most people tend to position such lights in the center of a room. However if you want to avoid too much glare in a certain room then placing it off towards the side would be a great idea.

After selecting the position of course you need to look at how high the ceilings are in the room. If they aren’t that high then make sure that the ceiling lights you choose are ones that don’t hang too low, so reducing the risk of someone hitting their heads against them. Of course if you have high ceilings you don’t want them too close to it because should a time arise when the LED bulbs inside need replacing it won’t be too much of a problem to carry out.

Generally when installing any kind of LED ceiling light be aware that the level of light remains the same. If you would like to be able to control how much light is released so you can create a different kind of feel to a room then why not install a dimmer switch. Once installed a dimmer switch will allow you to quickly and easily choose how much light is emitted. This type of equipment is ideal to use in bedrooms, living rooms and dining rooms.

Of course the other thing you have to consider when thinking about installing new ceiling lights in any room in your home is what kind of furniture you have in that room. It is important that you make sure that the LED ceiling light that you choose for that room complements the rest of the furniture within it. You can still opt to fit a chandelier, as now there is not only very ornate style ones but very modern and simple ones as well.

Two activists convicted for painting the words “NO WAR” in five-metre-high red letters on the highest sail of Sydney Opera House in March 2003, are facing court action again to prevent them from auctioning the equipment used to paint the controversial sign.

Dr Will Saunders and David Burgess were sentenced to nine months periodic detention and ordered to pay the Opera House Trust $151,000 for malicious damage to the building on March 18, 2003.

The pair spent six months in jail for painting the slogan on one of the sails of the Opera House on the eve of the invasion of Iraq. The protesters say they wish to auction the equipment for humanitarian causes in Iraq.

Police confiscated the paint can and two brushes used in the incident and have now applied for a court order to have the can and brushes destroyed. They are saying such an auction would contravene proceeds of crime laws.

Saunders said they wanted to auction the can and send the proceeds to humanitarian causes in Iraq. According to The Australian newspaper, Mr Saunders said the auction could be conducted by a registered charity to raise money for the Mother and Child Hospital in Basra.

He said the can should also be preserved as an important piece of Sydney history.

“We want to give the surplus money that we’ve raised, and anything extra we can make from an auction – not only the paint pot … I think we can raise many many thousands of dollars,” he said. “We’d be happy to come to any reasonable arrangement with the police about how this auction takes place … it’s just mean beyond belief, petty-minded just to destroy it.”

The matter will go before a Sydney court on January 16.

Meanwhile, the world-famous Sydney Opera House is one of 21 international landmarks short-listed to become the new Seven Wonders of the World. The list includes modern landmarks such as Paris’ Eiffel Tower and older candidates like the Colosseum in Rome and China’s Great Wall.

In this article, I will show you the different methods of puppy training.

You probably had no idea before getting a dog the different training methods available. Do you know which one to choose? Before deciding on what is best for your pooch, you should know the differences between each one.

Obedience training is probably the most widely known. With obedience training you are essentially instructing your dog to carry out specific activities and commands. Some of these commands are the time-honored ones like sit, stay and heel. The importance of obedience training is placed on quick, accurate execution. While there may be quite a few general advantages to obedience training, it is usually not always the “end all” for controlling dog behavior.

YouTube Preview Image

Obedience trained puppies will conduct specific instructions because their master is commanding them to do it. The reason why some people think that obedience training is not “all that” is because while your dog may learn some of the obedient behaviors, that does not mean he always acts appropriately. Case in point: some puppies are predisposed to being rescue or herding dogs. You can teach them to sit and stay but at times their instincts will override those obedient behaviors. That is why you sometimes see dogs trying to “rescue” their masters when they are swimming or a dog “herding” children who are running all over the place (like sheep).

With behavior training, you are essentially becoming the “Miss Manners” for the canine set. Some of the behavior training that is included is house training, crate training and good conduct while on a leash. Many people start on potty training when they get a puppy. They start with spread newspapers like house training and graduate up to leaving by doggie door to eliminate outside. Or you might leash your dog and teach it not to pull you around. Barking is also another behavior that is often tamed in behavior training.

When it comes to activity training, it is exactly like its sounds. You are instructing your dog in a variety of specific instructions. Have you heard of the K-9 units with the police department? What about Search and Rescue dogs? Hunters often train their dogs to be companions and help them point out wildlife during a hunt. Ranchers may use dogs to herd cattle. These are all common examples of activity training. More realistic activity training for the everyday dog owner may include fetching a ball and bringing it back in a game of toss. A game of Frisbee is another example. Even obstacle courses and similar activities you might find in competition qualify as activity training.

Be advised that there is no one way to train your dog. In fact, many people combine the different types of training to accomplish their goals with their dog. You might even say that certain behaviors a dog exhibits could be solved with a combined training effort. If you plan to be a do-it-yourself trainer, review each aspect of training and pick and choose what you want to concentrate on. Or, work with a trainer and outline your goals that you want your dog to achieve.

Thursday, January 12, 2006 Maj. Gen. Geoffrey Miller, a top US commander who supervised the detention and interrogation of detainees at Guantanomo Bay and Abu Ghraib facilities declined to testify in a court-martial proceeding, by invoking his right to not implicate himself, the Washington Post reports. This is believed to be the first time that the role of senior officers in the prisoner abuse scandal has formally surfaced.

Gen. Miller declined to testify during the court-martial trial involving two dog-handlers who are accused of detainee abuse. An attorney for one of the accused is seeking to question Miller on whether he ordered the use of dogs to frighten detainees during interrogations.

Gen. Miller’s lawyer has stated that the decision to decline testifying was taken as Miller has been repeatedly interviewed over the last several years, and that he stands by his previous statements made to Congress, Army Investigators and lawyers.

Do you remember when a baby monitor did little more than pick up the conversations your neighbors were having on their cordless telephones? But today, baby monitors have become far more advanced than to simply pick up and transmit sounds. Some systems even have video monitoring. Deciding on which monitoring system is right for you and your family can be difficult and confusing, because there are so many choices! Now there is more to think about than “which kind of walkie talkie-esque contraption will work best with the littlest feedback squeal?” But before you go ripping your hair out in frustration, just consider these tips as a general guideline to help you and your family pick out the best baby monitor.

First, you’ll probably want to control the volume on your receiver. Everyone knows all moms want to tend to their babies if they’re distressed or crying, but it’s a very good idea to be able to adjust the monitor volume to a comfortable level. Imagine flying out of your bed because it sounded like a three alarm fire, and you rush in to discover your baby is playing with a toy and making noise. You DO want a system that adequately conveys an alarm without breaking your eardrums.

Do you lead a relatively noisy lifestyle? If you have other children, share your home with others, or work from home, you may want to consider that these sounds can easily drown out the noises of your baby, which is why you may want to opt for a visual indicator which will alert you when there is something directly related to your baby.

Since you can’t stop every little noise from occurring around you, you will find comfort in using this kind of system, because it visually alerts you when your baby is in distress, so that you become aware, even if you can’t hear it. These are especially important if one or both of the parents is hearing impaired.

Check out the user reviews on sites like Amazon or other massive sales sites. These are good reviews to read because they are from people who have bought the product, not by those selling it. You are likely to find the whole spectrum of reviews on sites like these. It’s likely that whatever you look up will have people who rate it five stars (highest) and those who only give it one star, and everything in between. If you want to get the most out of reviews like these you’ll have to focus on the more useful ones that give you specific reasons why they do or don’t recommend something. By reading about real experiences with various monitors, you can better decide which one is best for you. There are lots of ways to narrow down your choices when it comes time to choose a baby monitor. Considering things like the shape, size, and cost of the monitor should all be an important factor in your final decision. It’s best to be informed before you purchase your baby monitor, so take your time to assess what you actually want and how you want the monitor to deliver those features.

These tips can be helpful for you and also for your child. If you’re looking for even more things that can be useful for the baby in that case check out the sites down the page for some solutions.

British-born Muslim hair stylist Bushra Noah is currently undertaking legal action against the owner of a hair salon for alleged religious discrimination. Noah is suing London hair salon owner Sarah Desroiser. Desroiser who runs a salon in King’s Cross, has said that she would not accept Noah as a stylist if Noah’s hair was covered. Noah, like many devout Muslims keeps her hair covered in public places, believing it to be immodest otherwise.

Noah claims that her headscarf is a fundamental part of her religious beliefs and that wearing the scarf would not interfere in her carrying out the job at all. Desrosiers said that it is not discrimination but rather that “the essence of my line of work is the display of hair. To me, it’s absolutely basic that people should be able to see the stylist’s hair. It has nothing to do with religion. It is just unfortunate that for her covering her hair symbolises religion.” Desosiers added that she had worked with Muslims in the past and employs a Muslim accountant.

Noah claims that the state of her own hair is irrelevant to her ability to style others hair.

The last few years have seen a string of similar cases in Britain. Last year, there was a case over whether a British Airways employee could wear a prominent cross, and another case in which a teacher argued that she had a right to wear a Jilb?b (a traditional Islamic dress that covers almost the entire body) in the classroom. In that case, the teacher lost in the High Court.
