WEB DESIGN USING GRID-BASED LAYOUT METHOD

With any beautiful design or structure, from architecture to painting, there lies beneath it a grid-based layout from which these creations were originally derived. It is, in essence, the unseen mathematical component of all design that, for many web designers, has become standard in the pursuit for the perfect web design.

To understand what a grid-based layout for web design is, we first need to understand why it is referred to as “grid-based.” A grid is a structure consisting of intersecting straight vertical and horizontal guidelines that are made up of margins, flow-lines, columns, rows, gutters, modules, and spatial zones. This potentially complex composition provides the perfect structural base that allows a web designer to create graphic elements from, or to organise content within. It is this reason that grid-based layout is used in web design.

By using grids in the website design a sense of uniformed structure is achieved for the overall website, this helps achieve better usability for website visitors as they are able to navigate and engage with the website much easily than if the content was simply thrown together without structure. Another reason grid-based layouts are used is efficiency. By designing to a grid, the actual design process is simplified because design guidelines are already in place, therefore making it easier to decide on design elements, such as width and height.

When using grid-based layouts in our web design, we can either create our own grid, or download a ready-made grid template. If we create our own grid, we will need to rely on what option works best for us and the web design project we are working on. It is therefore valuable to follow some simple guidelines when creating our own grids. These are:

• Use only enough columns as needed for the web design. In other words, if you are only going to use ten columns, then only create ten columns – and not twenty.
• Watch the spacing. As a general rule, columns should have the same number of pixels across as rows are high.
• Don’t box yourself in. If you need to move outside of the grid for specific graphic elements, then do so. A grid is only there for structural support, and is not the end product.

If creating your own grid-based layout isn’t appealing, or you simple do not have the time to invest in it, then downloading a pre-designed grid template is available. There are many online sources that provide such templates, and by downloading a grid template you can save on time and have, at your disposal, an effective grid template ready to use.

It is important to re-emphasise that grid-based layouts for web design should not be mistaken for a strict rule by which all graphic elements or content must adhere to. Naturally, when creating anything we can move beyond specific rules in order to achieve our creative goal, and grid-based layouts are no different. If we use grids as a structural guide in our web design, then we are better able to create amazing web designs that will not only appear organised on our web page, but will hopefully inspire and engage every website visitor.

Energy Bill Busting Tips

Are you dreading your next power bill? Starting to worry about how the increases in electricity costs are going to affect you. Well you’re not alone, so here is what you can do to reduce your anxiety and your bills.

Most of the time simple and easy common sense measures can cut hundreds of dollars fromyour bills just by following these steps.

Top Ten Ways to Reduce Your Bills FOR FREE

1. Most people do not realise how much electricity a simple light bulb could be adding to the cost of their electricity bills. Turning off lights when you exit a room will make a big difference.

2. Try to avoid using the clothes dryer, if the weather is bad purchase a clothes rank that you can use inside.

3. If going on holidays, turn off your electric hot water system at the meter board to avoid the system constantly heating up water when it’s not being used.

4. If you have a peak smart enabled air conditioner you can connect your air-conditioning unit to Tariff 33 – which provides a guaranteed 18 hours of electricity at tariff 33 rates. You may not be able to turn on the system on during peak times, but this could be a good compromise to still enjoy your heating/cooling system without costing the earth. Energex are currently offering $250 reward for split system (peak smart enabled) and $500 reward for ducted systems (peak smart enabled). To see whether your air conditioner is eligible go to the Energex website.

5. An old inefficient pool pump could be costing you up to $640 annually to run on tariff 11. By connect your pool pump to Tariff 33 (if possible) could save you hundreds off your bill. Energex are currently offering a $250 reward for connecting your pool pump to Tariff 33.

6. Turn off additional refrigerators. Have a good think about how much you really use the other fridge. If it’s only for the occasional party switch it off in-between time or if it is to store extra food think whether you really need to stock pile this much as you could be paying a fortune for “just in case you need it”.

7. When running your air conditioner set the temperature to 23 degrees in Summer, as every degree below this will cost you 10% more in running costs (eg. Running at 20 degrees will cost you 30% more than running it at 23 degrees) Or to save more open windows for ventilation rather than turning on the air conditioner in summer time.

8. Use cold water to wash your clothes. With the many washing detergents available today that are made for cold water washing it makes sense to use these rather using your electricity to heat up the water.

9. Once the weather starts to cool down, remember to close any windows that have been left open, use a throw blanket to snuggle up and keep warm whilst watching TV and get out the ugg boots. . If you do turn on the heater, keep the heat in the room you’re in by closing the door.

10. Using low flow showerheads in your shower usually consume less energy and provide the same amount of comfort.

All these free suggestions will reduce your energy usage and your power bills but they do take self discipline and children are often the worst offenders in leaving everything turned on. So if you don’t want to comprise on life style you can still reduce your bills by purchasing energy saving products such as a solar hot water system, solar power system, led lighting, skylights and monitoring systems.

MALE MULTIPLE ORGASM : TEN STEPS TO SUCCESS

I would like to expand your thinking about male multiple orgasms. My name is Aleena Aspley and I have been working with men coaching and teaching male multiple orgasm for nearly 9 years. I have seen many regular male orgasms, where a male builds to orgasm and ejaculates. This experience is called a genital orgasm, and every male on the planet is wired to experience a genital orgasm. It is nature’s desire, that a man ejaculates every time he has an orgasm and the male body comes wired for procreational sex.

Male Multiple Orgasm is a passion of mine. I have also taught many men how to last longer and re-train their male body to become multi-orgasmic.

WHAT IS MALE MULTIPLE ORGASM?
A male multiple orgasm, or cellular full-body orgasm, is an orgasm that can be felt in every cell of the body. When a male has a full-body orgasm, he can be aroused to the point of no return and continue into an extended full-body cellular orgasm without ejaculation. I have safely taught many adult males to experience over 30 minutes, or more, of orgasm after orgasm, without ejaculating.

Guys, it is hard to imagine, this superior orgasmic experience, if you haven’t had one! However, if you were able to pleasure your partner, for as long as you wanted, with a rock hard erection, without stopping and changing positions, or using head control tactics period, then you wouldn’t want it any other way!

WHAT IS AN ORGASM?
Energy is the answer, orgasm is energy. Humans are very successful, at harnessing energy, to make our world an easier place to live. We can position solar panels, on the roof of a house, to harness the sun’s energy and power our homes with electricity. We can convert crude oil, into petroleum products, to power our car.

Men can learn to harness, their male sexual energy, by practicing my simple solo masturbation techniques below. The male body does learn very quickly, how to power its’ owners, basic genital orgasm, into intense dimensions, of full-body multiple ecstasy.

10 TIPS TO BECOME MULTI-ORGASMIC

  1. Solo Masturbation – Take it slow, lie down and close your eyes and stimulate slowly.

  2. Breathe – Breath slowly into the abdomen. Breathe in your nose and slowly out of your mouth.

  3. Movement – Move your hips. Stiff hips, can quickly accelerate a man to the point of no return. Allow your body, and hips, to move with enjoyment and freedom.

  4. Sound – Breathe in your nose and out of your mouth, with an “Aarrrgh”, upward sound. Sound moves erotic energy, from the genitals and upwards into the body. I believe, males are unconsciously wired to make no sound, that’s why many women are multi-orgasmic. Note: grunts and blowing sounds are no good either!

  5. Intention – Lift your chin, so that your eyes are shut and looking upwards. Energy follows your eyes, and your intention is to expand your orgasm into your whole body.

  6. Relax – If you are having problems with brain chatter, then consider relaxing your whole body, starting from your feet and moving upwards to the top of your head. Male multiple orgasm is achieved, when a males brain waves are in Theta (relaxed just like when you first wake up in the morning).

  7. Arousal – Masturbate SLOWLY, for at least 30 minutes or longer, at least 3 times a week. By the way, masturbating quickly, will re-wire your male body to reach orgasm with speed, so SLOW DOWN! When your arousal builds to 8 out of 10, stop masturbating, breathe, moan and imagine your erotic energy, flowing into every cell of your body. When your arousal backs off, then you can slowly start masturbating again.

  8. Conscious Touch – Relax and feel, the wonderful sensations within your body, as you slowly arouse yourself.

  9. Practice makes Perfect – If you want to be good at any task, then practicing often is the key to success. Solo masturbation, is the best way for a man, to re-train his male body to experience multiple orgasm.

  10. Find a Professional Tantra Coach - do a search on the internet for a Tantra Professional who specialises in Male Multiple Orgasm.

FIND A TANTRA PROFESSIONAL

It is much easier, to quickly learn to become a multi-orgasmic man, by finding a Certified Somatic Sexologist (also known as a Sexological Bodyworker) or professional Tantric Sex Coach. There are many Tantra sexuality coaches, popping up all over the internet, however, during your coaching session, if your Tantric Sex Coach is not coaching my steps 1 through to 8, then you are just being overcharged and in an ordinary massage session.

Tips for Kids Parties

Parties for kids have come a long way in the last decade due to more options, more expense and more expectation placed on an event that runs approximately 2-3 hours. Involved in the kids party industry for over fifteen years, I have seen every type of party from the informal backyard gathering to a veritable carnival with everything imaginable hired.

A children’s party doesn’t require a big budget or an event planner to be wonderful. I want to give you some great pointers to get the party started and the kids having a ball.

1. Stick with tradition. Kids enjoy it when predictable elements are present, and if they are overlooked, it won’t go unnoticed! Must-haves are: Food, birthday cake, and the all important Party Bag! If you have at least these three things, you’ve got the basics of party.

2. What to provide for the kids. There are innumerable options: Party games; hire an activity or entertainer or have the party somewhere that will entertain the kids for you. Rule of thumb: DON’T OVER-DO IT!

One or two structured games are more than enough. The fact is, the kids are already being commanded to eat now, cut the cake now, watch the gifts being opened now, etc etc.. When you throw in entertainers, activities and games, the kids can quickly be overwhelmed, and the party whizzes by without the kids having time to actually play with abandonment.

3. Play time: This element should be the top party essential. Time for the kids to play, run about, laugh and talk with each other is golden. It suits children of all ages and capabilities, and -, it’s free!

4. Age-appropriate entertainment. This tip may seem like a no-brainer, but I have attended many parties that can have children feeling bored or bewildered. For example, hiring a magician-clown for two-year olds left most of the children terrified. Another example is a bowling party for four-year olds. The children had no interest in being competitive and after several bowls, the excitement had seriously worn off. And even Pass-the-Parcel can cause distress when played with children who are too young to know they haven’t missed out, they just have to wait their turn. When you are hosting a party with mixed ages and genders, there is a wide range of entertainment that will appeal, such as jumping castles, face painting and balloon-twisting.

5. Try to Relax! When planning your party, listen to your child and use your instincts – you know what they’ll enjoy the most. On the day have a mini run-sheet so you don’t forget anything, like when to put the party pies in the oven or to hand out the party bags.

Then, enjoy YOURSELF too…after all -it’s a party!

All the best!
