"I've Been a Bad, Bad, Bad Girl."

I went into our living room last night to discover a purse theft.

Well, actually a theft of my hair brush and Kleenex from my purse. The purse, itself, is to the left of this photo on a table that Ms. H. has direct access if she jumps up on the soft.

Per her usual, she chews things up, but never swallows. Her favorite chew toy of choice that is not a chew toy are sticks - plain, old ordinary sticks that she brings into the house through the doggy door.



Iranian carpet design - in the Islamic and Turkish art museum off the Hippodrome, which is well worth visiting. The ethnographic department on the lower floor has lots of information (in English and Turkish) but is rather poorly presented, though I enjoyed the room-sets of 19th century Istanbul houses. But the main museum is really marvellous, with carpets going back to the thirteenth century and some lovely frescoes from Seljuk times.

Fiberlok Snowflake Kazak MouseRug, Hand Washable Mouse Pad & Desk Protector.

Fiberlok Snowflake Kazak MouseRug, Hand Washable Mouse Pad & Desk Protector.

Manufactured with the amazingly beautiful and intricate Lextra Fiber Graphics technology. Printed without using ink the Lextra process uses high voltage electricity to drive soft dyed nylon fibers into detailed designs that feel wonderfult to the touch. Hand-washable Lextra collections include MouseRugs (mouse pads), and CoasterRugs (coasters) that are manufactured with genuine fringe. Another well-defined group of Caucasian rugs comes from the famous Kazak area around Lake Sewan, in the southwest Caucasus. Field designs of Sewan Kazak rugs present various versions of large, dramatic, central, shield-like, cruciform medallions. Thus, they are also traditionally called Shield Kazaks. Bold and well proportioned, this example shows the addition of multiple, tiny, red and white diamonds, asymmetrically scattered throughout the field. This unique design is commonly called a "snowflake design," and is highly prized by antique Caucasian rug collectors.

Antique Bakshaish Persian Rug #41942 by Nazmiyal Collection

Antique Bakshaish Persian Rug #41942 by Nazmiyal Collection

Antique Bakshaish Persian Rug #41942 by Nazmiyal Collection

Antique Bakshaish Persian Carpet (Bakhshaish or Bakhshaysh) - An allover pattern of bold, graphic medallions in soft reds, blues, apricots, and saffron unfolds across the deep cocoa field of this spectacular antique Bakshaish. Indeed the cocoa ground almost seems to form a secondary allover star pattern. Although all these design elements are of classical Persian derivation, the drawing and articulation the forms has the abstract clarity and impact of the finest Kazak or Konya rugs. The boldness of the field is beautifully balanced by the fine scale and drawing of the classical turtle border on an ivory ground. Bakshaishes are generally prized for such qualities, but even among its type, this example is exceptional.

Global Warming: A Very Short Introduction (Very Short Introductions)

Global Warming: A Very Short Introduction (Very Short Introductions)

Global warming is arguably the most critical and controversial issue facing the world in the twenty-first century, one that will affect every living creature on the planet. It is also an extraordinarily complex problem, which everyone needs to understand as clearly and completely as possible. This Very Short Introduction provides a concise and accessible explanation of the key aspects of global warming. Mark Maslin discusses how and why changes are occurring, sets current warming trends in the context of past climate change, examines the predicted impact of global warming, as well as the political controversies of recent years and the many proposed solutions. Fully updated for 2008, this compelling account offers the best current scientific understanding of global warming, describing recent developments in US policy and the UK Climate Change Bill, where we now stand with the Kyoto Protocol, and the latest findings of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change. Maslin also includes a chapter on local solutions, reflecting the now widely held view that, to mitigate any impending disaster, governments as well as individuals must to act together.

Noise and Tension

Noise and Tension

Photo shows young runners react to the start gun during the United States outdoor athletics championships at the Mike A. Carroll Stadium in Indianapolis, main city of State of Indiana located in the mid-western region of the United States of America on 24th June 2007.

[This is an extraction from Chapter 18, Pages 101-104 of the book “Mental Tension and Its Cure” - Third Edition 1986, authored by Prof. (Dr.) O.P. Jaggi. Prof. (Dr.) O.P. Jaggi is a Physician of international repute in the field of chest Medicine, Asthma and Allergy. He was the Director of Vallabhai Patel Chest Institute, New Delhi, Dean Faculty of Medical Science, Delhi University, and Governor. He is the author of over seventy books including an authoritative 18 volume series on History of Science and Technology in India. His research papers have appeared in several international and national journals. He has over 50 years of experience in patient care, research etc.]

In India, since ancient times, there has been a tradition that those who want to have mental concentration or worship God for prolonged periods, go into the loneliness of the forests. There, away from human habitation and amidst the peace-giving sound of flowing water and melodious singing of birds, they find tranquillity of mind essential for concentration and meditation.

The things have changed now. Last summer I went to out-of-the-way hills for a few days. One day, I went kilometres together inside the forests and sat there in a lonely, beautiful place. All at once, the tranquillity around was shattered by the jarring noise of a transistor radio tunes to Vividh Bharati proclaiming ‘Mody Dhage, Mody Dhage’ – a symbol of the clattering industrial invasion of our environment from which one cannot escape.

Inside the city, it is free-for-all. When people make a telephone call, it appears that they have no faith in the efficacy of the instrument.

Some young men on purpose remove the silencer from their scooter and go tearing away the atmosphere and the people’s eardrums. You have to put your palms on the ears and yet you feel as if you have been hit to pieces.

Then there are the jagrans of the devotees, who earn for themselves nice things in this life and a place in the heavens after death, but take away from others hard-earned night’s sleep.

Harmful Effects

Exposure to noise tells upon the health. Very loud noise of 150 decibles (a unit of sound), can cause a rash under the collar, in between the fingers and the thighs. Eardrums may get ruptured. It can cause giddiness and nausea.

Exposure to over 100 decibles for a few hours, lessens efficiency and makes one more prone to accidents. It makes one aggressive and quarrelsome. Even in those who are sleeping, exposure to loud noise causes a disturbance in their brain waves as recorded by the electroencephalogram.

Lately, a few other observations regarding the damaging effects of prolonged exposure to loud noise have been observed. It can lead to irregular or faster pulse beats, enlarged hearts and increase in blood cholesterol. It causes mental fatigue, irritability, and precipitates or aggravates mental tension and neurosis.

Most disturbing observation is that loud noise increases heart rate of the foetus inside the abdomen of a pregnant mother. This may cause irreparable damage to the unborn baby.

Noise is one of the pollutants of our environment. It is on the increase. Trucks, buses and cars on the road, the trains on their tracks, the jet aeroplanes in sky, they all are producing more and more of noise as their number is increasing. Haphazard growth of the cities, in spite of the efforts of the city planners, is bringing small and large industries beside or inside the residential areas. The transistors, the radios, and the loudspeakers make their own contribution. Much noise comes from people as well, a vast majority of whom are not aware that by speaking loudly, they are being a nuisance.

Noise Control

If there is any doubt at all as to whether a noise hazard exists in a factory, the following questions might give answer :

1. Do workers find it difficult to speak to one an other in a noisy environment?

2. Have workers complained of head-noises or ringing in the ears after working for several hours?

3. Do workers exposed to the noise for several hours, experience temporary deafness?

4. Have workers been told by their families that they are going deaf?

5. Is the labour turnover in noisy workshop considered to be excessive?

6. Has management any suspicion that noise is affecting efficiency or output?

7. Have any complaints of excessive noise been received from adjoining residents?

Good mental and physical health requires that exposure to loud noise should be minimised on the roads, inside the factories, at construction sites and inside residential buildings.

Noise produced inside the factories is very harmful for the workers as they are continually exposed to it for years together. It is detrimental to t

persian oriental rug - Persian Flatweaves

Persian Flatweaves

Persian Flatweaves

This is the first comprehensive survey of the vast and fascinating subject of Persian flatweaves, and in particular floor covers. Previous publications on the subject have largely been dealers' restricted catalogues focusing on a narrow geographical area or the weavings of a particular group, or sections in more general books. This book thus fills a huge gap in the oriental carpet and textile literature. Flatweaves have until recently been seen as merely the products and property of the poor. Since the late 1960s, however, growing attention has been paid to the best known type of flatweave, the gelim, revealing both its quality and variety. Other flatweaves, such as the palas, which is no less frequently found than the gelim, have scarcely been mentioned in any of the literature published so far, yet are shown in this work to be objects of great beauty and diversity. The book is divided into two parts. The first deals with the cultural background to the subject. Drawing on literary sources as well
