Have you ever wondered what nature is like when you are not there? What do the animals do when no one is looking?
By developing and enhancing your awareness of your natural surroundings, one minimizes the impact and the disturbance one makes as they walk in the woods. This allows you to be in nature without nature knowing that you are there. This is how professional photographers get the picture of a fox licking its paws, or a deer nursing her young. Nature Awareness is also developing and honing your own five senses enabling you to interact with the world around you in ways that are new and exciting.
We all can hear the songs and calls of the birds. But did you know that the birds communicate between themselves, the animals around them? Through this bird language ancient hunters were able to move silently through the wilderness without being detected. How is it that so many animals live in the woods near you but are seldom seen? They listen to the birds who see you coming and who send off alarms calls to the forest community. By the time you arrive all of the animals have long since disappeared.
Do you want to interact with nature on a more profound level? Do you want to get close enough to the deer to watch them in their day beds without them seeing you? Learning the language of the birds will put you on that path to nature observation.ANIMAL Tracking, BIRD LANGUAGE and Nature Awareness Weekend

Improving the Home With a Dumbwaiter

Finding a way to make chores around the home easier is very important. These devices are especially handy for caretakers or house cleaners because it is possible to do more work in less time. They are often designed to allow access to all areas of a home, sometimes with more than three stops. In addition to being very popular at home, they are also commonly used in businesses, such as restaurants or car manufacturers.

The electric dumbwaiter is fairly new, with the first one being developed in the eighteen hundred, but the manual dumbwaiter is much older. Manual dumbwaiters have been used for many thousands of years and are in fact still used today. Some of the earlier manual dumbwaiters used animal power, but today they rely on the human body to SD Lifts.

At its most simplistic, a manual dumbwaiter is simply a rope and a platform made out of wood or some other type of material. The rope is attached to the platform and is used to pull the platform up between an area of changing elevation. While it is possible to use this simple design, most people use some sort of pulley system, to help reduce how much effort it takes to raise the lift.

Why is Dumbwaiter Popular?

Even if you use a pulley system to reduce the amount of work, you still have to use your own body to raise the lift. This is why the electric dumbwaiter is the most popular choice today. These allow the lift to be instantly sent to another floor, just by pushing a button. They are also a lot more stable and secure. With the many built-in safety switches and sensors, most electric lifts will provide better service.

It is important to choose a dumbwaiter that will be installed easily. There are several available that can be installed with relative ease, but it is necessary to have a strong background in construction or house repair. Some find that it is out of their comfort zone, so they will opt for having a company do the installation. If you buy a kit that is easier to install, it can reduce the installation time, so even if you aren’t doing the actual installation, it can still save you money.

Usually, the car will come with much of the cable drive system already installed. It comes on a piece of track that is a few feet long. The car, track and all, can be attached to the top of the elevator shaft. This eliminates having to secure the cable system and line it up, which could often be very tricky.

There is still some wiring that will need to be done

The dumbwaiter itself will need power, but most plug directly into a regular 115 VAC outlet. This is the standard kind found in most homes. While this makes the electrical wiring easier, the call buttons will still need to be installed on every floor where the dumbwaiter will stop. Most of the ready to install kits available use simple snap together connectors to make this task easier.

Those that are in need of making work around the home easier and quicker, often turn to dumbwaiters. Their use and popularity have only increased since they were first used and today they are incredibly popular.…

Save Nature, Save the Future

Survival will be man’s greatest reason to face and act on the environmental problems that have stricken the earth today.  He must protect his shelter and resources to continue to exist.

Habitat destruction is the main reason why other living creatures have abandoned a certain place or have gone extinct.  Animals need food and shelter just like mankind.  If they are deprived of these basic needs, they withdraw themselves and go somewhere where they can find subsistence.  Worse, if they can no longer find a place where they can survive, they cease to live.

Plants, trees, and those that live on ground also need food to live, produce and reproduce.  Water, sunlight and soil are their elementary needs.  Yet, climate change has affected these beings.  Too much heat and less rain has resulted to drought, thus, scanted the ground with water.  The damage in the ozone layer brought by industrialization has also affected every living creature.  This stratosphere layer could no longer protect living creatures from too much heat from the sun.  Notice that nowadays especially during summer, a notable part of forests, rice fields and crops plantations wither and burn.

If these living creatures cease to exist, man will get extinct at the same time.  If you want to survive, you need to do something about these problems.  Save the nature for your future.…
