HomeVacuum pumps – the un-sung hero of home and industry – both practical and versatile all in one well designed piece of equipment. When it comes to pumps, vacuum pumps are utilised widely and are well respected in industry and retail simply due to their simple, practical form and countless functional aspects. Sewerage vacuum pumps are found more commonly than one might think, in the home as well industry. You would be forgiven for not realising how many vacuum pumps are silently going about their business in your home. Versatile and convenient, they are the perfect partner to assist with a wide variety of errands. Well-known areas where a vacuum pump is used range from air conditioners, electrical appliances to your everyday usage of your sewage system.

RVS Liquid Ring Vacuum Pumps RBS/AV Vacuum Boosters

A vacuum pump has the ability to pump solids, liquids and air out of one area and into another. Through its mechanical design it is able to displace the “object” away from where it is currently to where the operator would prefer, or require it to be, making the vacuum pump the most effective tool in a system based on transposition, such as any sewage system. The purpose of the sewage system is to remove the sewage waste from the point of origin and ensure that through a series of pipes and tanks, the waste is deposited in a central collection tank awaiting the point of discharge. Gravity and differential air pressure are no longer the heroes of the waste disposal system as they proves to be fatally flawed when faced with any incline, except when assisted by a force outside of itself. Which is where pumps take centre-stage. Since the invention of the vacuum pump and with their technological advances, engineering and construction industries have make use of vacuum pumps which have been seen to have the ability to apply their designs and used in previously untried areas. In the construction of a more modern sewage system the vacuum pump plays a significant role.

Through their design, partnered with technological advances, vacuum pumps have become less expensive and therefore less costly when than gravity dependant sewage systems. Pumps like Robuschi are so well constructed that they simply can last for a life time or longer, unless they are exposed to undue pressure on an on-going basis. Because they are simply near fail proof, there is far less impact on the environment which is especially relevant in these times, preserving residential, industrial and commercial locations and lowering maintenance costs. With radically reduced replacement and maintenance costs of your vacuum pump, combined with the astonishing various practical applications, contacting your local Robuschi Distributor, IBS, would undoubtedly be one of the best investments for your business needs.

Winston Churchill is referenced with the quote “We shape our buildings; thereafter they shape us.”

Churchill didn’t know it at the time, in 1943 when he made this statement, but he would go on to prove this statement to be irresolutely true, however for all the wrong reasons. When rebuilding the bombed-out House of Commons, Churchill insisted that despite the fact that the old building was too small for the modern needs of its occupants, that the building be erected in precisely that same place with the exact dimensions in which it had previously been structured. The reason being that he felt that the overcrowding would create a sense of urgency which would in turn motivate the politicians to higher levels of productivity. He couldn’t have been more mistaken in that case, however, at the same time, he couldn’t have been more correct. The building did shape the politicians! Just not in the way that he had intended.

Since the beginning of humanity, we have had the indispensable need for shelter. Shelter has provided human beings with safety, warmth, space to home their families and protection from the great outdoors. Human beings have always required a space to keep them and their families safe from the threats of predators on the outside as well as from the elements. Stemming from there humans, have taken time out of their busy lives, to ensure that they have a safe place that is theirs and theirs alone. Further to this, humans have developed a necessity of finding a place to house and keep safe their goods for sale or exchange, stock that they could sell or use to procure what they needed to sustain their families and get a varied of goods that they themselves may not have had the skill or ability to produce or grow themselves.

From humble beginnings, homes and businesses have grown to be more than just places to store people and goods which are precious. Homes and places of business have become more than just the structures or shapes that they have been styled into. Buildings have come to represent who we are, who we have been and where we are going.

dblo architect studio recognises that the buildings that we shape, in turn shape us. With that kind of intensity of outcome for both function and form, whether it is your home or your workplace, we understand the effect that the building will have on your life. Going above and beyond the ability to merely protect you and your loved ones, your home is the ultimate representational display of your being.  With that in mind, it is every aspect of design that becomes the focus point of your build, new or renovated, residential or commercial, community or public. Design is the tool that we use to ensure that every aspect of the building is utilised to its fullest potential and that creative design and high-quality construction enhances the environment and the community giving a sense of place and responsibility.

Mal Weeraratne – author of Emotional Detox through Bodywork

Mal Weeraratne – author of Emotional Detox through Bodywork- talks about the true meaning of Tantra

‘No examination of the art of Tantra would be complete without first examining its history’, writes Mal Weeraratne in his fascinating book ‘Emotional Detox – through Bodywork.  In a chapter entitled, ‘ Ancient Practice, Modern Uses’, Mal Weeraratne goes on to explain that ‘Tantra started over 5,000 years ago in India.  From India it went to china and they call it Tao’.

Mal explains that Tantra was originally practised as a path to enlightenment through sensual energy called Prana. This is very powerful and when circulated around the body leads to a positive, energised state; indeed it invigorates the entire body. Harnessing sexual energy is a very powerful technique that is an essential tantric technique; and as Mal describes, ‘familiarity with Tantra can help a person enjoy life to the fullest’; this is because harnessing sexual energy rejuvenates and improves physiological, emotional, psychological and spiritual health.

Tantric Journey - School of Healing and Awakening was founded by Mal Weeraratne in London as a result of Mal’s development of a unique and pioneering treatment method that combines, Tantra, Tao bodywork along with specialised trauma release methods that are capable of releasing trauma at cellular level in the body. Mal Weeraratne is considered a pioneer in the field of emotional detox through bodywork and has treated thousands of clients from around the world with his unique treatment method:  Tantric Journey.

Mal Weeraratne works as both a therapist and teacher from his Tantric Temple in Hammersmith, London, but also teaches at Tao Gardens in Thailand. During his training sessions Mal has witnessed many positive transformations, but for those who cannot attend one of his courses his book is an excellent self-help guide, in which Mal reveals how all women are capable of experiencing emotional freedom and ecstatic bliss, the book covers everything from information on understanding how the female body may be activated to deepen ecstatic states; yoni massage, detox diet; strengthening the pelvic floor, negative emotions, healthy orgasm, healthy male ejaculation and so much more.

Emotional Detox through bodywork is packed with practical advice and tips and readers will learn emotional trauma can block pleasure and cause disease; the difference between soft penetration and deep sustained penetration, including how to avoid premature male ejaculation; the secrets and history of female ejaculation; techniques for awakening and yoni massage; and will come to understand how emotional trauma can block pleasure and cause disease. The book is an excellent starting point for those who wish to improve their health and well-being or wish to understand how negative emotions are stored within the body.

For those who wish to seek professional help to release negative emotions and experience full release /emotional freedom from stagnant negative emotions then a session with Mal or one of his fully qualified Tantric Journey therapists is recommended. Mal Weeraratne has over twenty years experience in his field and offers one-to-one therapy sessions, 7 days per week in London, via appointment.

DIY Marquees make things simple for marquee business owners

DIY Marquees make things simple for marquee business owners, with useful, practical marquee accessories and amazing marquee lighting packages simplicity is key, simply connect the leads together plug in to the house/extension lead and you’re done. If your customer needs another power supply, then an additional extension lead would usually do the job.

This simple system is perfect when you’re starting up a marquee hire business but after a while the jobs will become more intricate and so do the electrics. At this point you need to consider attending training courses from our friends at Essential Supplies who are running electrical courses aimed at the marquee hire industry:

Event Lighting Course:

Our one day workshop is specifically aimed at those working within the events industry. We shall cover methods and types of lighting and how to install your system. This is a non examined course and provides no formal qualification; it is de-signed to help candidates with lighting. Candidates will receive a certificate of attendance upon completion.

Price: £180 + VAT per candidate

Marquee flooring packages are designed to be easy to lay whilst giving one of the best finishes available in a marquee using new carpet, available in red, green or honeybeige.

Included in each package is a non-breathable underlay, this is placed underneath the carpet when laying to prevent the build-up of condensation during your event (grass gives off a lot of water vapour if not covered). Grass is very tough so covering for a week or so will not generally cause any harm.

The marquee flooring is simply nailed in place -hammer, nails, cutting knife and a tool belt are included in the package. Watch our marquee flooring video to see how easy it is to lay.

This is the flooring and method of laying used by most of the marquee hire industry.

WHAT IS THE IMPORTANCE OF HAVING AN UP TO DATE WILL?

Only 30% of people in this country have made a Will. This is because we do not like thinking about death and we are unaware of the importance of having a professionally drafted Will. Once a person overcomes their fears and makes a Will they find that it is a positive step that gives them great peace of mind. They are reassured that their affairs are in order.

If you die without a Will you die “intestate” meaning the intestacy laws set out which of your family members inherit and the amount. Your spouse will not necessarily inherit all of your estate and if you are unmarried your Partner will not inherit anything.

A legally valid Will, carefully prepared by a qualified expert Solicitor, will ensure that:

you provide for your loved ones in the way you wish;

you choose the Executors who will administer your estate;

you choose the Guardians for your minor children; and

you can take steps to reduce the Inheritance Tax payable.

You can also choose to appoint Lodge Brothers Legal Services as the Executors of your Will. We will ensure that your estate is dealt with promptly and efficiently so that your loved ones do not have the responsibility but do receive their inheritance as quickly as possible.

Fixed fee for a single Will starting from £325 +VAT (£390 inc. VAT).

Fixed fee for mirror Wills starting from £500 +VAT (£600 inc. VAT).

All our fees are fixed and agreed in advance.

Our professional services offer peace of mind to you and your family.
