Business Careers

We all look to our future as children and answer that question growing up. What do you want to be when you grow up?

As a kid you would then answer with something like, a fireman, a police officer, a doctor, a spaceman and so on. Who as a kid actually replied they would like to be a bin man or a home painter and decorator or bespoke joiner.

It is only later in life when the question is asked of you and you then decide what courses to apply for or which college to attend. When it matters and most the time you rush with your decision.

It is easy to make a snap decision and apply for a course and a few weeks in you realize that its just not enjoyable and feel you made a mistake.

Take time to make decisions on your future career

If you have children and they are attending high school, now is a good time to help your children find out what they enjoy and where there potential is.

I always knew as a kid I enjoyed computing so when I finished school I did an IT course but even though what I was doing closely related to computers it wasn’t what I wanted. I started the wrong area of computing and I wasted a year at college doing it.

Home Theater & Lighting Installations

Home Theatre

The term “home theater” used to mean a small room designated for the enjoyment of watching movies. Then gigantic flat screens and HD technology came along, and the video game industry upped the ante with Xbox, PlayStation and Wii products that appealed to every age group. With so many different uses, the home theater has morphed into an auxiliary family room.

How can one room be made flexible enough to suit all of the activities performed there? Easy! According to the Theedam Electrics all you need to do is make a few tweaks in your lighting to satisfy the sports fan, the gamers and the movie buff.

“The affordability and popularity of big-screen TVs, high-quality sound and home entertainment systems has created many opportunities for using specialized lighting to enhance the experience.

Whether your home theater is part of new construction or a remodeling project, think in layers. A lighting layer is defined as a specific type of fixture that is unique from others in that same area. For example, a room that has recessed downlights, a decorative fixture in the center of the room, plus wall sconces on one wall would be defined as having three layers.

Each of the three types of fixtures would be controlled by separate switches and dimmers.

“The objective of using layers is to create lighting options for different tasks and activities in that space. The ideal lighting for the entire family to watch a full-length movie in the evening might be with the recessed lighting turned off and the decorative lighting at the ceiling and the wall sconces dimmed to a low level. If the kids are watching cartoons or playing video games, turning on the recessed lighting to the maximum output, and turning off the decorative lighting.
