How to Get the Right Office Chairs

One of the most important factors that you have to consider when putting up your office is getting the right office chairs for your employees. To help you work without risk of injury and help your employees (and yourself) work efficiently, it is vital to select the right type of chair. Since most of your time in your office will be spent sitting, getting the right chair is not a consideration to be made lightly or be taken only based on aesthetics. The chair can be regarded as an important part of your workplace.

Find a chair that can be easily adjusted and is flexible. Usually you will want to purchase a chair that has height adjustment, a pneumatic seat, seat depth adjustment, arm height adjustment, adjustable tilt tension and back seat height adjustment. Ensure that the chair has a good quality material. There are many different materials available in the market or online, but usually the chair’s base must be steel or aluminum. Steel is extremely durable, scratch resistant and strong, while aluminum is both strong and lightweight. Examine the chair to ensure that it is suitable for your body size and weight. It is also advisable to consider the overall physical feel of the chair.

Ensure that the chair suits you ergonomically. Also, it must be both deep and broad enough to enable you to sit comfortably. The pad of the chair must be made of a breathable, durable material that is comfortable and firm, without being excessively spongy. In addition, the chair back must be padded in such a way that it assists the natural curve of your spine. Don’t forget to examine the adjustable arms. They should be firm, but not very firm as to hurt your wrists or arms after an extended period of time working in the chair. Armrests must be adjustable and must not affect with the workspace. You must be able to move closely to your desk without losing support from the backrest. Your shoulders must be relaxed and your forearms must comfortably rest on the armrests. If the armrests are very high, they will tend to elevate your shoulders and give you pain or stiffness in the neck and shoulders, whereas if they are very low, they initiate leaning and slumping to one part. Eliminate armrests if you don’t utilize them, if they affect your work or they cannot be adjusted properly.

There are a wide variety of office chairs found in the market and online. They are designed with various features, sizes, shapes and materials that can suit your needs. Many furniture manufacturers are offering high quality items. However, before you make any purchase, you need to try several different office chairs. Inquire about the return policy when buying your chair, because at times the chair may feel comfortable in the beginning, but after a day it may not. If you cannot get a chair that fits your decorative tastes, it is advisable to buy an ergonomically built chair than a pleasing aesthetical one. You should also avoid chairs with cheap plastic materials as they are prone to accidents that break off, which can lead to severe injury.

Don’t settle for cheap office chairs. Ergonomic chairs are more expensive than standard chairs. But as a business owner who cares for the health of his/her office staff, investing in these chairs could not be better.

Top 5 Design Tricks for Beautifying Your Home for the Summer

Now that summer is approaching, it is time to rid yourself of the stuffy signs of winter for good. Sprucing up your home for summer is not difficult or expensive, and you don’t have to be a professional decorator to do so. Use these five tips to brighten up your home indoors and out and welcome the summer with open arms.

Brighten interiors with pillows

Did you know that by switching out your pillows you can completely change the feeling of your living areas and bedrooms? You don’t even have to replace the entire pillow, just the pillow case! Look for bright pillow covers at inexpensive stores. If you don’t have a pillow that fits the case, you can stuff it with polyester stuffing for an inexpensive pillow you can easily use anywhere in the house. Choose brighter versions of colors already present in your home. For example, if you have maroon accents in the winter, switch to a bright red or even a magenta shade for summer. Patterns also transform a room into summer.

Switch out stuffy curtains

Heavyweight curtains can really drag the feeling of a room down. Switch out your stuffy winter curtains for gauzy, lightweight curtains for summer. If you still want the light-blocking power of heavier draperies, simply exchange dark colors for brighter colors. Floral patterns and gingham are also perfect patterns for summer draperies.

Add color to your yard

Unless you live in a desert, you can grow plants in your yard during the summer months. Just adding a few bright blooms to flower beds can really perk up an outdoor space and make it feel inviting. A couple of flowers planted in pots by the door creates a welcoming atmosphere. Scattering flowers and greenery around a patio also encourages summer outdoor activities. In a pinch, you can always use fake greenery instead of real flowers.

Bring comfort outdoors

Summer was made for spending time outdoors, but if your outdoor areas are uncomfortable, no one will want to stay out there. Fill your yard or patio with comfortable furniture, side tables, and brightly colored cushions and pillows to encourage outdoor lounging. Provide other comforts as well, such as a cooler full of cold beverages or a fire pit to keep warm on cool summer nights.

Bring outside in

Another easy way to prepare your home for summer is to bring the outdoors into the house. Bring in natural reminders of the outdoors, such as bark or wicker furniture, flowers and other plants, or paintings of bright, summery scenes. You can even switch out a traditional style rug for a modern rug in bright patterns. Floral patterns are big right now, and perfect for summer decorating.

You don’t have to spend a fortune to transform your abode into a summer paradise. You may be surprised how just a few simple changes completely transform your indoor and outdoor areas without spending much of your hard-earned money. Of course, to really reach the full benefit, keep those areas clutter-free.

Add Character to These 3 Home Areas – Bedroom, Living Room, Conservatory

What does your home say about you? Whether or not you are aware of it, your interior décor is a reflection of your family’s character. Sentimental accessories and unique designs will truly transform your house into a home.

If you want your home to speak of your personality, you may think out of the box with these clever tips on how to add character to your living area, bedroom, and conservatory.

Living Room

The living room is one of the cosiest areas in your house and it can also be customized according to your taste. An extensive mix of your favourite collections can certainly bring appeal to your living room.

Family photos can help make your living space more personalized. Create a group of photos in black and white, put into similar frames with the same colours. You can combine portraits with the same colour to create a formal look. You can also buy collage frames to display your favourite colours.
You may also decorate your walls with special items. You can place a shelf underneath any wall art with other items that you want to display. To make it visually appealing yet simple, you may have the same item in a set of three.

In addition, you may add a bookshelf into your living room to make it appear more chic. You can also make use of items like throw pillows and candles. All of these decors enhance your space and make it cosier. You can also add a huge area carpet at the centre of your living area with a design you love.
Don’t forget to give each section of your living space a flattering glow to shed the finest light in every family moment.

Bedroom

Your bedroom is your private place where you can be yourself without any rules.Why don’t you let your own territory reflect your personality, tastes and moods, and hobbies?

First, sit and plan out a design that will greatly suit your interests instead of just picking randomly. If you are into music, sports, or books, then you use that as a theme to reflect your hobbies and interests.

Next, limit yourself to a few colours. Colours affect your mood, so you have to pick a colour of your own preference, such as the one that makes you happy or the one that makes you feel inspired and colour your room with that.

Add photographs and posters on one side of your wall. You may also put up photos of outings with your friends and families or posters of the exciting places you have visited, your favourite celebrity, music icon, and whatever else that you can think of.

Conservatory

A conservatory needs careful consideration just like any other parts of your home. There are modular designs available in different configurations, but the customized conservatory enables home-owners to choose a design according to their character.

For instance, if you want to transform your bland conservatory into a music room, then you can start by bringing in all musical instruments that you already have. Then, add some accessories that suit your favourite music genre.

On the other hand, if you are a bookish person and you want to turn it into a library, then you can buy bookshelves and place them at the edges of your conservatory. Then you can just add a modish table and comfy seating furniture at a specific part of the room. Also, make sure that you have good lighting to enable you to fully understand what you are reading or writing.

With these easy suggestions, you can surely add character into your living area, bedroom, and conservatory. Always remember that whatever you do, ease and comfort comes first so you have to ensure that the interior design and furniture you have chosen is comfortable. And before you personalize your home interior; do not forget to check your budget.

Modern designs for renewable energy

Solar Forest

The very best designs often solve more than one problem. The same can be said for Neville Mars’ solar forest which keeps cars and people shaded from the sun, yet uses solar tiles to convert light into usable energy. The stored energy can also be used to charge the electric cars below; genius!

Plastic Balloon Power

For thoroughly space-age solar design, meet the plastic balloons which aim to magnify sunlight onto solar photovoltaic cells to improve electricity output. Like a string of party bunting, the plan is to hang the 6ft balloons onto metal wires to capture maximum sunlight. They are cheap to create, relatively easy to manufacture and could be coming to a sunny climate near you. Find out more information at cnet.

Solar tree charger

Not three words you would expect to hear in the same sentence, but this solar tree charger does actually exist. Gone are the days when solar solutions were unsightly and bulbous; now they are perfectly integrated with everyday life and interior decorations! Perfect for small electronics, the 54 ‘leaves’ on the solar tree will charge your mp3 players, mobiles and digital camera batteries with ease. Bend and flex the branches as you see fit!

Solar boat

Ride the waves and catch the sun with the TURNOR PlanetSolar boat which is the largest solar powered water vehicle in the world. The New Zealand-based designers trump the WWF boat used to raise awareness, educate the masses and save the world.

Solar fan

Photovoltaic or solar PV cells are to thank for this genius solar powered fan created by Yorick Stuyts. These cells are then connected to two small fan blades, multiple wires and a savvy motor to create the ultimate heat-beating fan. The fan is flexible so easy to fold and preserve. Plus, it cools your office, business or home for free!

Wind power

It is widely known that the EU is only just beginning to harness the power and realise the potential of wind power. However, they have high hopes for this environmentally-friendly power source technology, and the Upwind Project predicted 20-MW turbines are “likely” by 2020. To put this in perspective, current production lines create 3 to 5-MW wind turbines and the leading manufacturers are launching 6 to 10-MW turbines as we speak.

You’ll agree it’s a long way to go yet but in GE, Siemens and Vesta we trust.

Building A Successful Brand For A Small Business

Brand building is an important strategy for any business, no matter how big or small it is.  Yet, small business owners often lack the acumen or knowledge in how to brand their business successfully, and what strategies are open to them to achieve this.  Here are some tips to get great branding on the road.

Know who you are

A strong brand lets others know what it does.  Make sure you, and your staff, fully understand your own brand – who you are, what your goals and values are, what you want to achieve, etc.  If you don’t fully understand yourself, then it will be hard to communicate this well to your customers.

Be unique

With lots of competitors in the marketplace, your branding needs to scream out what makes you different from the rest.  Let others know why you are unique and what it is that you do differently from your competitors.

Consistency of messages

Successful branding involves reinforcing strong messages, so that your customers will retain information about who you are and what you do.  Make sure you are clear on what message you want to give out, and stick to the same message on all mediums of communication.  Consistency is a key component to branding success.

Name and logo

An instantly recognisable brand name and logo is a sign of good branding.  Whatever name or logo design you choose make sure it is recognisable, inspires trust and makes a connection to the types of goods or services you offer.  Consider hiring the services of a design agency to create name or logo concepts as you start out, and always include them on every piece of communication you send.

Get your name out there

Organisations both large and small understand the importance of building networks with customers and new customers, as well as generating trust for what they offer.  By building an online and offline community, you are in the driving seat to get customers on your side and love your brand.  Make the most of social networking sites and start blogging.

Online communications

Your business cards and letterheads look great, your customer service team know how to reinforce your brand with customers, and your products are something to be proud of.  But, make sure that the internet is not letting all of your hard work down.  It is easy to neglect this side of a business, but in fact it is a crucial element of branding.  Make sure your website is up to date, and looks as slick as your offline communications.  Use the same level of professionalism replying to email comments as you would for hand-written communications.  Don’t let your guard down, either, on social networking sites, where it can be easy to adopt a more casual or informal approach.

Have a great product or service

Having a successful branding strategy is one thing, but you need to combine that with a great product or service.  Don’t let your product or service slip, just because your branding is on top form.  It’s not a sustainable strategy, and your customers will soon lose trust in you.

Deliver

It’s easy enough to spout great marketing speak about who you are and what you offer, but make sure that whatever you say and how you say it, you can deliver and not let your customers down.  Create honest branding that builds up trust.

Be original

There are many great brand names out there, and there’s nothing wrong with taking inspiration from them and learning from their achievements.  But, never ever nick ideas off them.  Don’t copy the big boys, as you will soon be seen-through.  Try to always think of original ideas, or at least add a twist to tried and trusted branding messages and strategies.

Build relationships

Get to know who your customers are, and what they like about you.  Valuable customers who like your offering can become great brand ambassadors, spreading the word to others about what you’ve got to offer.  Spend time nurturing these important relationships and get to know who your brand ambassadors are.

Definition of penalty and ban on a web page or site from Google

What difference is there between Ban and Criminalization of a Web Site?

First of all it is good to clarify what is a penalty and what is the ban of a website.

Criminalization of the Web site or Web page

What does it mean that a page or site has been penalized by Google?

A website is considered penalized when one or more pages, the first placed permanently with certain keywords, undergo a sudden collapse and no longer placed in the top positions. When a site or specific pages of a site is penalized, are indexed in the indexes of the engine, but are downgraded in the SERPs  (an acronym for Search Engine Results Page ), which results pages of search engine.

In practice, the penalty is a ” downgrading “of the site or a web page that involves the loss of positions in the SERPs .

The penalty is usually a “downgrading” of positions within the engine’s results pages .

► The Google penalties are usually of two types :

  • penalties algorithmic / automatic : algorithms applied by the search engine
  • Penalties Manual : manually applied by the Google team

Some types of Google Penalties are for example:

  • Google Penalty -5 : Google this slight disadvantage is the downgrading of a web site from first to sixth place . In practice, if your website has always been at the top of Google searches with a given key, and suddenly finds himself in sixth place, could have suffered this penalty.
  • Google Penalty -30 / -90 : page penalized (penalized or pages) is hereby imposed a penalty of TOT positions (30 to 90) so that it no longer appears in the first pages of Google. In practice, if the first page was a well-positioned with a keyword, it will be relegated to positions of XX in Google SERPs.
  • Google Penalty -950 : -950 penalty in the event, the page hit by the penalty will only appear after the 95th page of Google SERPs. This is a penalty due to over-optimization  or keyword stuffing (Over Optimization Penalty)
  • Other Penalties : There are also numerous other types of penalties from Google, for example due to over-optimized backlink in a reduced period of time, the excess of tags, the presence of duplicate content, and more.

Keep in mind that some penalties are often not real penalties, but only of ” fluctuations “.

Ban the Website

What does the site banned from Google?

A site is banned by Google when it is completely excluded from the Google index . In practice even a page of the website is in the archives of Google. The banned site will no longer appear in the results of the engines for any type of query.

How can you tell if a site is penalized or banned?

See if a site is banned is very simple. Just search Google for site: nomedelmiosito.com. If the engine does not return any results, then there is no page in the indices of the engine. Tell if a site is penalized, however, is not always easy and requires a thorough analysis.
