Open the bathroom window or use the extractor fan when showering. Keep the bathroom door closed at all times, to prevent water vapour from showers circulating around the flat. Use a cooker hood (venting directly to the outside) when cooking every litre of gas burned produces five litres of water vapour. Finally, every home would benefit from use of a dehumidifier. Use it on the low, economy setting all the time, but turn it up when a higher moisture load is introduced into the house such as showering, cooking, or bringing damp washing into living areas.

Most of the time, it s an oversight. Occasionally, it s on purpose, but to be honest, I haven t run across an on purpose in years. It s common practice now that www is optional; mostly because it s redundant and URLs are long enough without adding redundant information. But once upon a time, there was a reason. The original intent was that the www specified what you were trying to do, so you could be sent to the right computer to do that. Servers that were available for World Wide Web access used a www prefix. ...
A coat of arms has been granted to Kate Middleton's family ahead of the royal wedding. How do you acquire such a design? Her parents may have been an ex-flight dispatcher and a former air stewardess descended from a miner, but an absence of noble blood has not prevented the family of Kate Middleton having a coat of arms drawn up for them. Generic family heraldic designs may be widely sold in gift shops and hung in the living rooms of the socially aspirational. But for any British person to have a legal right to a coat of arms it must have been granted to them or they must be descended in the male line from a person to whom arms were awarded. Organisations can also be granted a coat of arms. In England, where the Middleton's design was carried out, there are no fixed eligibility criteria
Many people think that some parts of the year are hotter because we're nearer to the Sun, but the real reason is that the Earth is wonky (tilted). Why do we have seasons? We have seasons because the earth is tilted (wonky) as it makes its yearly journey around the sun. The Earth's tilt The Earth's axis is tilted at an angle of 23. 5 degrees. This means that the Earth is always pointing to one side as it goes around the Sun. So, sometimes the Sun is in the direction that the Earth is pointing, but not at other times. The varying amounts of sunlight around the Earth during the year, creates the seasons. The tilt of the Earth's AXIS is the most important reason why seasons occur. We have hot summers and cold winters because of the tilt of the Earth's axis. The tilt of the Earth means the
Pushups and pull-ups have long been considered the two best exercises you can do to train your upper body. The reason for that is these two exercises target every major muscle group of your upper body. б YouБd be surprised as to how good of shape you can get into when you only perform these two exercises. б Ask anyone who has gone through Бboot campБ and see what kind of shape they are in? б Ask them what exercises they did? б When you do push-ups or any type of pushing movement like a bench press you target your chest, shoulders and tricep musclesБhalf your upper body. б Pullups or any type of pulling motion targets different muscles. б The pulling motion targets your back, biceps and forearm musclesБthe other major muscle groups of your upper body. б The problem for most people,
Our bodies make noise all the time. We snore, burp and pass gas, and sometimes our joints crack. But are our internal soundtracks normal or unhealthy? Dear Dr. Manny, My stomach makes the loudest and strangest gurgling noises all the timeБ even when I'm not hungry! Should I be worried and visit a doctor, or is there a simple way to prevent it? Thanks, Becky A noisy abdomen does not necessarily mean you are hungry. The digestive system causes stomach sounds, known as Borborygmi, when air or fluid is moving around the small and large intestines. During a process called peristalsis, stomach muscles and the small intestine contract and move contents forward in the gastrointestinal tract. БThese sounds occur both when the stomach is full and when it is empty. Б, a gastroenterologist in New
The season of germ sharing is well underway. If your household is like most, it is a domino effect with colds passing between children and parents. From the sniffling, sneezing, and runny nose, you may also experience another common cold side effect, teeth pain. If you find yourself asking, Бwhy do my teeth hurt when I have a cold? Б, hereБs the scoop. Sinuses are airб. They have tiny hairs (БciliaБ) inside them, which help clean out mucus and keep air chambers free of debris. When you get a cold, the chambers can get blocked withб. The bacteria begin to spread, which often results in illness. Since one of the air chambers is located above and behind the upper jaw, it can cause what seems like a serious toothache when in fact it isб. б If your tooth pain continues after your cold is gone,
