Bathroom Lights and their importance.

Often an afterthought, or even forgotten, bathroom lighting does not seem to get the attention it deserves. 
Bathroom is a space that needs layers of light from multiple sources.
When deciding on the type of lightbulb to use in your task lighting fixture, it is important to pay attention to the bulbs, also known as the color temperature. The best color temperature to use is it the closest to daylight. Daylight is the ideal color temperature for tasks, such as putting on makeup, because it provides the most accurate depiction of color.

Task lighting is bright, directional light designed to provide more localized light for an activity. Incredibly important and often overlooked in a bathroom, task lighting is usually found around the vanity and is needed for personal grooming practices.
A vanity light mounted horizontally above the mirror or two wall sconces mounted alongside the mirror will provide adequate task lighting for putting on makeup, shaving, or brushing teeth.
Enhancing ambient lighting and softening task lighting, accent lighting provides a subtle glow that creates depth and highlights different parts of the bathroom.
An easy way to add accent lighting to a bathroom is through the addition of wall sconces. A wall sconce will provide a soft, diffused light to counterbalance ambient and task lighting.

Now that the type of light that is needed in a bathroom has been determined, it is important to identify the appropriate areas that need to be illuminated and what light fixtures will sufficiently to illuminate the space.

A light fixture in an area that is not directly exposed to water but is occasionally exposed to moisture and condensation, such as next to a sink, should be listed for Damp Locations.



In areas directly exposed to water, like the area around a shower or bathtub, bathroom lights should be listed for Wet Locations. This means if the light fixture is splashed or comes in contact with water that the water will not damage or build up in the electrical area of the lamp.


Even though there are general design tips for lighting a bathroom, such as the ideal height to mount a wall sconce or how to balance the light in the room by using a combination of different types of light, it is important that you consult a local contractor or electrician to make sure all local codes and regulations are observed.

Crucifixos fora das escolas públicas por ordem do Governo

Ministra da Educação diz não querer atacar a Igreja Católoca, mas antes fazer alguma pedagogia e demonstrar igual respeito por todas as religiões. Os ofícios com a ordem governamental já começaram a chegar às escolas onde os símbolos religiosos ainda permanecem visíveis

Embora ache que há cruzes muito mais importantes com que o governo se devia preocupar, e essas sim deviam ser uma prioridade, pois são cruzes demasiado pesadas e estão nos ombros dos portugueses, como é o caso dos impostos, do desemprego, etc...Não posso deixar de concordar com a atitude. Afinal, e embora a população portuguesa seja maioritariamente católica, não nos podemos esquecer que vivemos numa democracia e que temos que levar em consideração todas as outras ideologias religiosas, parece-me por isso uma medida acertada e coerente a de retirar os crucifixos das escolas públicas.
Não há que impôr nenhuma religião a ninguém, há que educar e respeitar a liberdade de escolha de cada um.

Aprender a ser prostituta

Com o objectivo de descrever as ocupações existentes no país, o governo brasileiro criou no site do Ministério do Trabalho e Emprego, um manual de como ser uma boa prostituta. No item 5198 é descrita passo-a-passo a actividade de prostituição, desde a abordagem ao cliente até a satisfação dele.

Este "manual" é de facto "muito pedagógico", já que os conselhos nele fornecidos, vão desde a forma de poupar e aplicar o dinheiro, até sugestões directas de como atender o cliente.

O manual está dividido em sete partes: conseguir clientes, minimizar as vulnerabilidades, atender clientes, acompanhar clientes, administrar orçamentos, promover a organização da categoria e realizar acções educativas no campo da sexualidade.

Para os interessados, fiquem a saber que, e, segundo o manual, uma prostituta, só alcança o pleno desempenho da sua atividade após dois anos de experiência.

Por isso meus amigos, se pensarem em recorrer à ajuda de uma profissional do sexo, a primeira pergunta qu…
