Ecig Coupons

If you are a regular ecig user, then you probably know how expensive it is to buy these modern cigarettes on a daily basis. The same case applies to those people who smoke traditional cigarettes. Whichever way you look at it, you will still spend a lot of money buying cigarettes regardless of their type or brand.

This is where an ecig coupon comes in to provide the much-needed financial solution. You do not have to spend too much money just because you are craving for a particular ecig flavour. A coupon not only gives you the chance to buy your preferred e-liquid, but also allows you to try new ones without worrying about the size of your wallet.

There is constant competition all over the internet and streets between various ecig companies and suppliers. For that reason, they tend to provide coupons to make their customers happy and also give them the chance to save money. As a regular customer, you should never be afraid of asking whether or not a certain ecig supplier offers coupons. This is one of the smartest and most reliable ways of saving money especially when you buy in bulk.

Another great thing you need to know about ecigs is that they come with so many accessories. Buying or replacing them can be quite expensive particularly when you are not financially stable yet you need them urgently. Instead of buying them at their usual retail price, coupons give you the chance to save your money and get what you want anytime you want it.

Due to the recent high economic hardship all over the world, it can be so expensive to spend money on electronic cigarettes if you have other important responsibilities to take care of in your life. On the other hand, switching back to traditional cigarettes is not only risky for your health but also uncomfortable especially when smoked in public. This explains why most suppliers have now invented better ways to help you smoke healthily and economically.

There are so many coupons offered by various suppliers and brands but they usually expire after a given period of time. You need to hurry and grab some while they are still valid for use before expiring. Make sure you confirm the expiry date before choosing the right one that suits your vaping needs. By taking advantage of the availability of e cig coupons, you will always shop more, spend less and get the best.

Block Paving Driveways

When you are installing a block paving driveway, it’s very important to lay a good foundation. Block paving is a very fine medium. It is similar to cobblestones, and it can turn a lumpy, damaged, dangerous driveway or path into a strong and attractive addition to the front of your property. It’s more than just dumping some blocks down and wishing for the right results. Whether you are installing block paving, or heavy duty concrete paving slabs, it is extremely important to prepare the ground well.

What are the consequences of making a mistake? The heaviness of your car will cause your driveway to sink over time, which will weaken the blocks, and ruin the pattern you set in place. As soon as you aren’t looking, weeds will pop up in the cracks and cause your driveway or path to be bumpy and unsightly. If they aren’t laid on a good foundation, your blocks will break and crack. To be blunt, you significantly shorten their life span.

It can be hazardous to have wonky paving. People love to file lawsuits, and if you have a hazardous driveway or walkway in front of your house, you can count on someone tripping and suing you. Liability is covered by your home insurance but there’s no way to insure that you liability and legal expense claims will be resolved. Additionally, if your project turns out badly and someone trips and hurts themselves, you may end up paying for a civil action.

Driveways, Paths and Patios: A Complete Guide to Design Management and Construction

If you’re thinking of creating your own driveway paving to save money, run your estimates first. When calculating your hourly time to complete the project, make sure to take into account the additional time an amateur will take over the time of a professional. Determine how much your time is worth by the hour. Be sure to include research time and the time it takes to decide on and purchase materials. Calculate the cost of the materials and their delivery plus the cost of having leftover material removed. Then look at the difference between the prices of getting an expert.

Also consider your own health. Unless you’re in great shape, laying block paving is a difficult job physically. There can be some unwanted financial results, especially with injuries like the back.

Ultimately, a paving professional is the best choice because it is critical that the preparation be done correctly. You need someone who is experienced with block laying, has good connections with building supply stores, knows how to choose the right materials quickly and easily, and has a big lorry to haul them in.

How to create dramatic outdoor lighting

You have worked tirelessly on the design and landscaping of your garden and it may be a place of beauty in the sunlight, but will never realise its full night time potential with a solitary security/safety lamp. It is easy to create effective dramatic outdoor lighting that allows you to enjoy a beautifully designed garden or patio area at night and thereby increasing the time you can spend outside on a pleasant evening. If your outdoor area is large, lighting can become expensive, so take the time to think about which areas are used most and which areas can be best showcased by some effective lighting. Generally, the best aspect to focus on is the view that can be seen directly from the house. It is possible to give a garden a completely different look and mood at night with well planned outdoor lighting.

Plan In Advance

Getting outdoor lighting right requires as much thought and advance planning as creating beautiful indoor lighting. Outdoor lights should be unobtrusive, highlighting plants, trees, water features or a stunning architectural detail without drawing attention to the light source itself. Conceal the light behind shrubbery, walls, rocks, or with a glare guard. The key is to be unaware of where the light is coming from. But don’t conceal the light source so much, for example in very low shrubbery, that its effect on its intended focal point is reduced. However, one instance when this can be useful is to create shadowy and silhouetted areas with backlights behind trees and hedges. If a light is angled to just graze a wall or tree, it makes an interesting feature of texture. Shadows work well to complement the lighted areas, so don’t go overboard with flooding the entire area with light. Think about spacing out the lights appropriately. It will not be possible to light several features that are very close together.

Buy Quality Lighting

As you are purchasing outdoor lights, try to buy the best quality and most robust you can afford so that they last longer in the outdoor environment. Place lights unobtrusively and out of the way of a walkway. Place them under objects or alongside objects and they can also perform a double duty by lighting up a path for safety purposes. Installing timers is also a good idea, should you forget to turn them off at the end of the evening or you would like them to come on at a certain time for security reasons. Always make safety paramount. Purchase a transformer that is able to cope with all the lights you plan to install and make sure it has plenty of terminals, as it is not a good idea to run all the lights from one wire. You may have planned the layout of your lighting scheme meticulously but once it is up and running, you may change your mind about some aspects of the design. For this reason, it is prudent to leave all the wiring above ground for a while so it is easy to make changes to the layout.

A Refracting Telescope Can Expand the Universe

In the world of astronomy, different types of telescopes are used to view the stars and planets.  No surprise to practicing star gazers, it is the refracting and reflecting telescopes that reflect the two basic types of telescopes utilized by today’s beginner and professional astronomers.   Considering the two types, the refracting telescope has centuries of use and has developed into one of the most reliable telescopes.   This telescopes origins can be traced back to the 15th century and is still considered a very commonly used telescope in the 21st century.  The truth be known, the refracting telescope is one of the oldest telescope designs still in use by today’s astronomers.

The Principles Behind a Refractor Telescope

The refracting telescope, also known as a refractor telescope, consists of multiple concave lenses that provide for the incoming light to be refracted, giving the user images that are more illuminated and greater in size.  These qualities make the actual images appear much larger than viewing with the naked eye.   These refractors gather the incoming light and bend it, allowing you to view objects from a distance.  This magnification is what provides you with the ability to clearly view the stars and night sky. Even though refracting telescopes look complicated, the truth is that they are just a series of concave lenses that refract the incoming light.

The Advantages of a Refractor Telescope

This is a well tested and constantly improved design that has endured for centuries.   Throughout the years, its design was constantly tweaked, resulting in continuous improvement of its design and magnification abilities.  This was a real benefit, providing astronomers with the ability to analyze the refracting telescope design’s strengths and weaknesses.

Star-Gazing Astronomy Guide

Star-Gazing Astronomy Guide

This telescope design has been improved dramatically since the fifteenth century.  Even with the improvement of refractor technology, it is the size of the refractor telescope that still presents itself as the major concern.  The need to dramatically increase magnification for astronomical research has resulted in larger and larger lens size.  This can result in the potential for defects or sagging.

The truth is that refracting telescopes have proven themselves across the centuries and, to attest to their value, have remained one of the most popular designs among astronomers.  Regardless of the type of telescope you choose to scan the cosmos, the ongoing use and popularity of the refracting telescope provides assurance that it will be with us for decades to come.

Finding a Refracting Telescope

We know that it can be a little confusing trying to decide on the best refractor telescope to purchase.  But what we found was that visiting telescope and astronomy websites that provide telescope user reviews can be very helpful in making your decision.  So, whether you are considering a kids telescope or professional model, be sure to do your research and you will be assured of enjoying many hours of star gazing pleasure.

Do You Have Low Water Pressure?

Many home-owners find that they have a water pressure problem, whether that’s from tap flow or from shower heads. Low water pressure can be a huge annoyance and is one of those things that can really make life difficult.

But you don’t have to suffer from low water pressure! You may be able to fix the problem yourself, or if you can’t you should be able to employ a plumber to solve the problem for you.

Here are the steps you should take to try and resolve your low water pressure problem if you have one.

Step one

Firstly, check that your mains water valve is properly switched on. If you’ve had maintenance done to your plumbing which involved switching the water off at the mains you may find that the mains valve has not been fully opened once the maintenance has been complete so solving the problem could be as simple as switching it on properly.

Step two

If you live in a hard water area then your problem could in fact be limescale and not low water pressure. The best way to find out if you have limescale is to check your kettle. If there are chalky deposits stuck to the filament in your kettle then you have limescale which can cause your water pressure to drop because it obstructs pipes. To get rid of limescale use a chemical or magnetic descaler in your water tank which will dissolve the limescale and stop more from forming. You should also soak your shower head in limescale remover as it forms in the nozzles which restricts water flow.

Home Plumbing Manual: The Complete Step-by-Step Guide

Step three

If you have low pressure in your taps then unscrew the tap handle and check for obstructions as a very small piece of grit or dirt can make a big difference to your water pressure.

Step four

Consult your neighbours to find out if they also have low water pressure as if they do then the problem could be street wide and may need to be addressed by your local council.

Step five

If you live in a block of flats it can be common to suffer from low water pressure the higher up you get. This is because the pressurised water that feeds your taps has further to travel. If you think this is the problem then consult your buildings manager as the problem can be solved by fitting a more efficient pumping system to the mains supply.

Step six

If none of these ideas solve the problem then consult a plumber who will be able to use a water pressure test kit to find the reason for the low pressure. This could be a fault in your pipes or something else but in most cases is quite easy to solve.

Top 5 Bizarre Burglaries

There are hundreds of thousands of burglaries every year in the UK, and around the world the problem is just as common. There are many theories as to why it happens, and every day the newspapers and TV are filled with stories about intruders and thieves who have broken in to a stranger’s home and stolen what is precious to them. A lot of the time, we don’t hear the stories of people who try and steal our goods and fail miserably. Maybe we should do more often. Sometimes we just need the reassurance that sometimes, crime doesn’t always pay. Here are five great stories of burglaries who failed in their terrible task:

1. The Burglar who forgot his phone

A few years ago, in Washington DC, a man was arrested when he broke into a house and proceeded to go through the house stealing whatever he could. He was disturbed during the robbery and left the home in a hurry. When he was arrested later on, he was confused as to how the police knew it was him. He then learned that he had plugged his phone into the wall of the house to charge the battery and left it there. The police then called numbers on the phone to find out who the owner was, and the jig was up. The 25 year old man was later charged with 10 burglaries.

2. The Burglar with a bad alibi

Last year in Belgium, a man was arrested on suspicion of robbing a jewellery store in Liege. But the man had a pretty good alibi, or so he thought. The alibi was that he was busy breaking into a school at the same time, so he couldn’t possibly have been doing both. He probably should have kept that to himself, as he was then charged with breaking into the school.

3. The Burglar with a conscience

In 2007, somebody broke into a home in New Mexico and stole $1,000 cash and jewellery worth a lot more, including a piece of jewellery that was given to the person by somebody who was on their deathbed. Three years later, the items were returned, including a handwritten letter from the burglar apologising for what he had done and for putting them through so much. The victim told police that she was satisfied with this and no longer wanted the burglar found or charged.

4.The Burglar with a sense of humour

A burglar in Oak Hill, Greater London was disturbed by a couple returning home from shopping and took refuge upstairs in their home. He waited a long time for the couple to venture out again, and then made a big mistake. One of the home-owners made a joke, and the burglar laughed, alerting them to his presence and leading to his arrest.

5. The Burglar who got stuck

A burglar who had just robbed a home in Maastricht, Holland made a huge error when he tried to escape from the scene of the crime. Climbing up to the rooftop in a bid to get away, the 33 year old thief tripped and fell down a chimney. Police were called after the burglar was heard shouting for help by the victims neighbours.

Fire Safety In The Workplace

In 2011-12 fire and rescue authorities attended 585,000 fires or false alarms in Britain, 7% fewer than in 2010-11 (626,900). Within this total, fires decreased by 6% to 272,100, while false alarms fell by 8% to 312,400 (ref. HSE)

Most fires are preventable if the person(s) responsible take the correct precautions and adopt the right behaviours and procedures. Having the right equipment installed, whether that would be fire alarms, extinguishers or fire hoses, could help in event of a fire.

You may not know but it only takes three things for a fire to start, a source of heat (ignition), a source of fuel (something that will burn) and oxygen.

The source of heat can be anything like, lighting, naked flames, electrical equipment, smoker’s materials (cigarettes, matches lighters etc.) or anything else that gives out heat.

Sources of fuel are any materials that burn easily if the come into contact with the source of heat. Materials such as wood, paper, plastic, rubber or foam are sources of fuel for a fire to ignite.

Oxygen – quite self explanatory really. The third component of making a fire start is simply the air around us.

How do you prevent a fire when you have the three components in one building? Simple keep them apart – obviously you cannot control air, but keep the source of the heat e.g. a heater, in a suitable place and where it cannot be knocked over and keep the flammable materials away from the source of heat if possible.

Responsibility

Employers responsible for fire safety, must carry out a fire safety risk assessment regularly and keep it up to date. A fire risk assessment will help you decide:

- What the chances are of a fire starting?

- Whether a fire in the building would put people in danger

- Whether your existing fire precautions are suitable

- Whether more precaution are needed

When carrying out a risk assessment, consider 6 things:

1. Use your and your employees’ knowledge and experience to identify fire hazards

2. Consider work processes that could cause a fire

3. Take the whole of the workplace into account such as outdoor locations

4. For small premises, you can assess the building as a whole

5. For larger premises, to make it easy to assess, divide the building into sections

6. If you share you premises with other business, always discuss every risk assessment with them

Fire Safety Risk Assessment

The BS 9999 Handbook. Effective fire safety in the design, management and use of buildings

The BS 9999 Handbook. Effective fire safety in the design, management and use of buildings

A risk assessment contains six steps:

First, identify any possible fire hazards. As you know a fire cannot start without the three components, how many risks are there that involve the three things.

Next, think about who it might harm and how. Consider the 4 groups of people in the building or has access to the building including anyone who works there. People who are disabled, young workers or people with communication. People who are not in the workplace all the time; cleaners or visitors. Members of the public, and people and other businesses who share the workplace with you.

Step 3, assess the risks and decide what precautions to take. All of these things should be in mind when deciding what precautions to take and what equipment you will need.

1. Control the sources of heat (ignition)

2. Limiting the fuel for a fire

3. Detecting and warning about fires – fire alarms and air horns

4. Escaping a fire – Panic bars, fire exits, evacuation chair and fire escape ladders

5. Fighting fires – fire extinguishers

6. Maintaining and testing fire precautions – test all fire alarms and fire exits

7. Fire safety information for employees

To keep this information safe and accessible to anyone, write all information about the assessments in a fire safety manual. It is also helpful to have a log book because when a health and safety inspector comes around, they can keep up to date and check the assessments you have been taking, which contributes to the overall health and safety inspection.

Once you have assessed the building and if you have identified any risks, what do you do next? Take at look at the risks, can you prevent a fire from happening? if not, can you reduce the risks and manage them safely? Always try and prevent a fire from happening, even if it means rearranging the office or moving things about just to avoid the risk.

Making sure that yourself and employees are safe is the number one thing when running a business, so keep all these points mentioned in mind when carrying out a fire safety assessment, this way you won’t miss anything.
