Some employees may be jealous of what is earned by employees in the company money.co.uk. By working there they get various advantages, namely beer and a free gym.

Not only that, they are also free of any vacation once a year and awarded 5,000 pounds sterling to be donated to the charity of their own choice.
It is the work of Chris Morling, founder and managing director money.co.uk whose mission is to create “the best place to work”.

“Caring for my team is the most important thing … they are my most valuable asset,” said Morling as quoted by the Daily Mail, Wednesday (18/01/2017).

Do not stop there, Morling also renovating the company headquarters is located in a castle in Cirencester, Gloucestershire with poured funds amounting to 3 million pounds sterling, or approximately USD 49.3 billion.

To renovate the building, he consulted with 50 employees and collaborated with celebrity interior designer, Laurence Llewelyn-Bowen.

Currently, the company’s employees can enjoy a wide range of office facilities and unique, like a conference room that doubles as an ice cave, cinema-themed Star Wars, and a toilet with a Rolling Stones theme.
“It’s about making this place to be amazing, productive place to work,” said Morling. “What we do is designed everything in accordance with the needs of the team.”

“Some people want to stand while working, someone chooses to work alone. In the end it comes down to create a space where you feel comfortable,” added Morling.

Morling explained that he used the services of the flamboyant designer is famous because it requires someone who thinks differently. Llewelyn-Bowen sees the project as an opportunity to redefine the interior of the “ugly, unfriendly, and not creative” into a modern work space.

In addition, employees money.co.uk also benefit by the availability of free gym, yoga studio, and working hours fleskibel. Once a month, they held a lunch and dinner familiarity.

Although British castle is seen as a place that is too fancy for a company that has only 50 employees, Morling insist that it is really an effective option when compared to constructing a building in London.
“The physical environment is amazing just a small part puzzle when you create an exceptional place to work,” said Morling.

“When your team really feel valued and their opinions be heard, they will feel helpless and it was much more valuable than the benefits we offer,” added the man dubbed a number of parties as the best boss in the world.

How To Attach A Guitar Strap To An Acoustic Guitar With Only One Strap Button

If you own, or have ever even taken a look at an acoustic guitar, most of them only have a single knob or button on the bottom where you can attach a strap. Have you ever wondered why? I have.

While I’ve browsed Google, Yahoo, Bing and Wikipedia, I can not find an answer about why. I’ve checked out the websites of Taylor, Martin, Gibson, Fender and a lot more manufacturers and they definitely do not discuss it. I can not even find anybody on a guitar online forum who has speculated about why.

I’m not the only one who questioned that and fortunately, somebody named Lucas Man provided this explanation on YahooAnswers.

“Most acoustics only have a single strap button on the butt of the guitar. The reason they don’t have one near the heel of the neck is because if you hook a strap onto an acoustic guitar that way, the guitar will suffer from “neck dive”. That’s when the guitar isn’t balanced properly on the strap and the neck falls down instead of staying at a nice comfortable angle. This happens because the body of the guitar is so light and can’t counter the weight of the neck.”

Many people suggest the answer to the issue is to install a 2nd strap button. I’m not about to drill on my guitar but I understand if I take it to Sam Ash or Guitar Center they’ll be happy to do it for me. To that, Lucas Man advises,
“remember, there’s probably a good reason they didn’t put one (strap knob) on in the first place.”

Alternatives to the Shoe String.
If you accept that reasoning, then what’s your option for attaching a guitar strap to an acoustic guitar?

For years, people have actually connected a shoe lace to the top of the acoustic guitar to attach the strap to the guitar. In fact, it’s so common that many guitar straps are sold with a shoe lace already attached to the strap. But, a shoe lace is not only an unattractive option but is likewise subject to being torn, frayed and broken throughout its use. Worse yet, lots of guitar players say it causes stress on the neck.

Now there’s a new product available which solves this particular problem by providing good balance to prevent neck dive and covering more mass than a shoe lace, thereby removing the neck stress issue.

The Leather Acoustic Guitar Strap Holder.
The leather guitar strap holder offered by MAC Music Accessories secures firmly around the neck of the guitar over the frets and under the strings so that there is no interference when playing.
Furthermore, the strap holder is simple to button on and off so you can leave it affixed to the guitar or the strap; whichever you prefer.

The Advantages of Using a Leather Guitar Strap.
There are definitely a variety of benefits to having your acoustic guitar protected by a leather strap holder instead of a shoe lace. Certainly, a proper strap holder looks professional and offers a more pleasing look than a shoe lace that looks homemade and amateurish.

Leather is not only flexible; it is extremely strong also. It needs only minimal maintenance which means that under normal conditions the strap holder will last for years and only get more beautiful gradually.

For those who own an acoustic guitar, it’s definitely worth thinking about making the small investment in a leather acoustic guitar strap holder in place of using a shoe lace or having another button attached to your guitar.

How Much Does It Cost to Build A Pool Screen Enclosure

A helpful guide to determine pool enclosure cost including design and materials.

Pool enclosures provide a number of benefits, from guarding against leaves and insects to adding privacy as you swim. They also offer added security and prevent pets and children from venturing into an open pool. From a design standpoint, pool enclosures increase your home’s resale value and enhance your swimming experience. They also provide an entertainment space for your guests throughout the year.

Every day we are asked by prospective customers how much does it cost to build a pool screen enclosure. Therefore, that is the basis for this article. The average cost our company has experienced in the last few years has been in the $6,000 to $8,000 range which is based on 20 x 40 pool deck with a dome roof. Of course, there are also other criteria which come into play which are explored below.

Enclosures for All Types of Pools

A pool enclosure must accommodate the many different pool sizes and shapes available. The enclosure varies in its construction depending on both the type and the location of the pool.

All of our outdoor pool enclosures typically are constructed with industry standard aluminum. We have found that this alloy offers the durability necessary for Florida storms. Other factors that determine price are design preference and matching the home’s structure.

Pool Enclosure Designs and Options

You have the choice of a pool enclosure that attaches to your home or stands alone as its own unit. You can also choose a basic enclosure that covers just the pool itself and doesn’t provide an enclosed space for the patio or the deck.

The screen enclosure roof varies depending on your preference; it can have a flat design or interesting peaks and gables for more visual appeal. The majority of pool enclosures we build are domed shaped. However, you can also have the pool enclosure built with a hip or mansard roof, also known as French roof with two slopes on each side.

The Many Benefits of Pool Enclosures

An enclosure reduces the time and effort required to remove leaves, bugs and other debris from your pool. It also minimizes the need to add more chemicals or operate the pool vacuum. Other benefits of adding an enclosure include:
Providing a safety barrier between the water and any pets or children who should not have access to the pool area
Creating a place to entertain guests and have pool parties without worry of insects and other bugs ruining the fun
Depending on the screen you choose, you can also reduce solar heat and create a buffer between you and the Florida heat

How I Accidentally Became a Recording Engineer

Well, not exactly. I did intentionally learn how to record. But it wasn’t as a career choice. It was only out of necessity. It’s really expensive to record in a professional studio. Where I live, it costs at least $250 per song to record with the top local engineer. That is an enormous bill at the end of a 10-song project. And bands around here somehow come up with that money. However, I cannot. And neither can any of my band mates. So, in order to get anything recorded, someone has to undertake the massive chore of audio recording. And somehow that person has ended up being me. And I’m not completely happy about it. I mean, I love the end result of a recording project. It’s such a difficult process that it’s hard not to be proud of the final product. But getting there is very painful. Not physically, but mentally. It requires a great deal of studying and experimenting to get adequate results out of a recording studio. I spent many months stressing and obsessing over sound treatment and setup.

There are so many variables to deal with: sound treatment, microphone placement, studio monitor placement, etc. And that’s just the preparation to start tracking. And then once tracking is complete, mixing and mastering are the next two laborious chores. And these two tasks entail so much attention that I consider each to be an additional task to accompany the recording process. On my first project I did all three: recording, mixing, and mastering. And after that project, I immediately understood why this is not the usual method. It’s a good idea to let a fresh set of ears take over at the mastering stage, allowing for a new perspective to the project. I am now more than happy to turn the project over to someone else after the mixing stage.

Not too long after that first project was completed, I started getting asked by other bands to do recording for them. Definitely not my intention, but I figured, “why not?” I had already spent so much time studying the recording process and setting up my own studio, that it almost seemed silly not to. So I did. And at first I was very passionate about it. People were enjoying my work and I was very proud of the sounds I was obtaining in my DIY recording studio. But as time went on, I began neglecting my own music. Recording had become nothing more than a job. I think of it in the same way that I do my experience playing in a cover band. Playing other people’s music or recording other people’s music… the end result of neglect is the same. So now, I’m back in college to obtain an accounting degree. I’ve already tried twice to make music my career. Both times my passion was depleted. But it’s back now. I can concentrate on playing music and writing songs. And with my arsenal of recording tools, I can document my own music with relative ease. These days I take pride in sharing my DIY and cost effective recording techniques with those who are just getting into the field of home recording. So in the end, my temporary time as a paid recording engineer really ended up being a positive thing. And the knowledge is a great backup to have as a last resort, just in case I go completely broke again.

Hinckley, The Birthplace Of The Hansom Cab

The Hansom Cab is something that people will have seen in movies and in picture books and old photographs. It is a two wheeled carriage pulled by a single horse with a driver perched on the back of the carriage. This was invented by a gentleman called Joseph Hansom in the year 1834 in Hinckley, a town in Leicestershire, England. Joseph Hansom was an architect who was born and brought up in York before moving to Hinckley.

Joseph Hansom brought his architectural skills to bear by designing his cab to have a number of improvements over the carriages that were in use at the time in Hinkley and the rest of the world. The word ‘Cab’ refers to the word ‘Cabriolet’ which describes the design of the carriage. One of the major advances that Hansom introduced was to design the cab to have a low centre of gravity. This quality made sure that cornering at speed was safer than ever before, and there was less chance of the carriage falling on its side.

The most popular carriage of the time was called the Hackney Carriage. The cab had four wheels and was therefore heavier, so it had to be pulled by two horses. The test drivers were able to overtake the slower four wheeled carriages on the roads of Hinckley with ease. The Hansom Cab was more agile too, and could swerve around the slower Hackney Carriages being pulled on the roads of Hinckley.

The rigorous testing that Joseph Hansom and his test drivers carried out on the roads of Hinckley showed that the Hansom Cab was faster, safer, lighter and more economical to run than the Hackney Carriage, as it only needed one horse instead of two. Following its development and testing on the roads of Hinckley, the Hansom Cab became a great success. It became all the rage, and quickly replaced the Hackney Carriage as the most popular conveyance for people in England.

News of this brilliant invention spread quickly around the world, and before long the Hansom Cab was in use in Paris, Berlin and St Petersburg in continental Europe. By the late nineteenth century they were also being used in the United States of America, with the largest numbers being in New York. From its beginnings on the roads of Hinckley, the Hansom Cab became established in New York in the year 1869 through the Hansom Cab Company.

The Hansom Cab was the preferred means of transportation up to the 1920s when the advent of two things took over. These were low cost motor cars and reliable mass transit public transport systems. The last license that was issued to a driver to operate a horse drawn cab was granted in the year 1947.

So Hinckley certainly has a claim to fame in the world of transport. People these days may think that the word taxicab has always been used to describe cars, but in fact the word taxicab was used to describe a Hansom Cab with a taximeter installed in it. A taximeter was a clockwork device for measuring and displaying the fare that the passengers would be charged at the end of their journey.
