The White House Auction

“Professor, the more I see of these so called debates, the more convinced I am that we are losing that element of geniality and inspiration that used to make this country great. Listen, I spent a few minutes watching some politicians accusing each other of real or imaginary sins, delivering the same sing songs about a few issues and in general talking as if their words were heard and their meaning understood.”

The Professor, busy with a breakfast that again raised Antoine’s expertise a few notches, smiled at me and replied:

“Before we solve the problems of the republic, have you tasted that salmon?”

Of course I had tasted it and it had a peculiar effect on me. It made me realize that perfection is not unreachable. It made me think that quality is not totally elusive. It made me realize that attaining excellence is not a distant aim that is beyond our means. And, unfortunately it reminded me of the sad episode represented by those stupid presidential debates that are regularly inflicted upon a semi literate public.

“It was unique, Professor. Antoine continues to improve on anything that reaches his kitchen. This salmon was divine. Do you think there will be leftovers for tomorrows’ breakfast?”

The Professor smiled and said in a serious tone:

“You have not recovered from the moments you spent watching those debates. I wonder what those citizens that retain the capacity to think feel about this magnificent farce. I wonder if some of them who have the power and the vision, supported by honesty and integrity, feel that we are coming to the end?

Can they do something about it?”

Yes, I thought, there must be a healthy percentage of Americans that feel that things have gone too far with our political system. Someone said recently that the best auction on the planet was the US presidential elections and lamented that participation was limited to US born citizens. He added, with tongue in cheek, that if such requirement was removed, candidates from Saudi Arabia, Qatar, China, Singapore, Brazil and Super Chavez of Venezuela would have the opportunity to buy into the most attractive and profitable market ever created on the planet.

I mentioned that to the Professor who shook his head and said:

“He was not far from the truth. Our elections in general are nothing but auctions. If you have the means, or can obtain them by associating yourself with persons or entities possessing sound economic resources, or even one of those nation-wide religious sects that have developed their own gold mines, you can opt for an elected office. Even the Presidential office!”

I asked:

“How about the political parties? There is a long tradition and valid concepts propping them up. Can they do something?’

“Not anymore. Keep in mind that the party system is moribund. The parties as such do not count anymore. They are just a label or a clever television phrase.”

I thought for a moment about the changes in the party system in the US. While never perfect, it did steer public opinion, created the visions and injected the necessary optimism. It developed, in most cases, acceptable political platforms that blended practical policies with the chosen candidate’s own visions. I said so and the Professor came back with a serious evaluation:

“Well, these days political parties are limited to raising funds, maneuvering with the media and dream up the catchy phrases you mentioned. In my opinion, we should revise the entire process, beginning with the unnecessary complication of primary elections instead of individual state conventions. If not, soon there will be Secondaries and then Tertiaries and so on, so that we will have a steady menu of elections every day of every year. Would you stand something like that?”

“You make it sound as a lost cause, Professor. But every time I think of those debates and the attending circus I have to agree with you fully. Now, is there any salmon left?”

House Window Spring Repair

It is that time of the year again for a house window spring repair. Winter is almost over and I am excited about the prospects of summer. After months of cold hard weather and the season has taken its toll on the house you do need to take a few days to fix and repair.

Well today I want to share some few tips on repairing your house windows in time for the summer time.

First you need to make sure that you have the right tools for the house window project. I always tell my readers never to start a job without all the necessary tools in place. So you need to make sure that the following is available:

Glass of Proper Size that you will use to replace the old one with, a glass cutter for sizing the windows, putty knife or alternatively you can use a glazer or scraper, paint, pliers, paintbrush, chisel, razorblade scraper, linseed oil, heat gun or make that a soldering tool, window scraper, glazier’s points and a hand cleaner. You also need to organize some work glover to protect your hands from the broken glass and all the debris.

Once you have all these then you are ready for your house window spring repair. Now let me provide some key tips about the actual repair process;

• You may have to remove the windows and replace screens on clean windows if you are dealing with interior storm windows.

• You must make sure that weather stripping provides a good seal. Examine that caulk lines carefully around the exterior windows before you begin.

• You can use a screw driver to probe the trim that is made of wood. This is found around the windows.

• You need to move faster with the house window spring repair process to beat the early rains that many damage your wood if exposed to the rain.

Auction House Offerings

Auction houses are taking the consumer market by storm, but many of us are still unsure of exactly what we can save money on. With the current economic climate auctions can be a great alternative to retail when it comes to saving on items you may be thinking you need to forgo.

Motor Vehicles
Cars available at auction can have low kilometres and manufactures’ warranty included in some instances and have become increasingly popular amongst the general public. From ex-Government vehicles, prestige and classic to commercial vehicles, variety is paramount to the success of motor vehicle auctions this decade.

Trucks and Machinery
For those in the market for yellow goods, some auction houses specialise in industrial goods or have industrial sites scattered across the country, appealing to businesses, farmers and the mining industry alike. These large items are a huge investment and buying at auction can usually mean a significant discount for buyers.

Damaged Vehicles
Motor vehicle enthusiasts, smash repairers and panel beaters have bought from auction for decades, grabbing bargains on damaged vehicles for restorations and parts. Cars can sell for under a hundred dollars, making purchasing a low cost method for acquiring parts. With a large national network of reputable vendors, like insurance companies, consumers and small businesses can turn this cheap buying method into profitable DIY projects.

Recreational, IT and General Goods
Many auction houses also offer a vast array of recreational items such as boats and motorcycles, IT and computer equipment, as well as general items under the hammer on a regular basis. From office furniture, to electronics, whitegoods to fitness equipment, you will be sure to save considerable amounts on every item you bid on.

Auction houses have also evolved their buying methods to make sure consumers are comfortable dealing with them. Technology and consumer need is driving change and providing additional buying options like fixed prices, online auctions, and real time auctions that can be remotely accessed over the internet.

Whatever your preferred purchasing method, auction houses have evolved to integrate technology and meet the needs of modern consumers.

Pickles Auctions are Australia’s largest auction group, holding regular offline and online auctions of used cars and general goods.

House Design Types

It’s possible to achieve a great house design with a low budget. To achieve this, one must invest keenly on the architectural design. A good example is Allan Donovan’s House in Kitengela which is designed with a West African concept in mind-flat roof with pigeon holes on the parapet wall.

Another example is the Hacienda Eco City Development in Mombasa which is also coincidentally designed with a West African/Islamic architectural concept with a flat roof and pigeon holes on the parapet walling.

The presidential State Lodge in Sagana, Nyeri is also a magnificent piece of architecture that has utilized architectural design to achieve greatness without necessarily using very expensive materials. It’s a plain rectangular house with hipped roofs and low aluminum casement windows.

Technological uses also affect budget. New lighter roofing materials such as stone-coated steel roofing tiles save on the amount of timber trusses used to support the roof.

The choice of foundation type will also affect the costs. Estates such as Jericho in Eastlands area were built on a raft type of foundation which is very cheap to put up. The ground floor slab rests on small sized beams which are laid on top of the ground so no excavations and foundation walling is done.

On superstructure walling, within Nairobi area, masonry stone is readily available hence not expensive. A cost-effective way to achieve elegance is to have the stones hand-dressed to a pattern of your liking. Hand-dressed stones bring out character to your house and will save you in terms of maintenance since they virtually require no maintenance at all.

Prefabricated houses are slowly coming into the Kenyan market. These houses are the solution to affordable housing in the developed economies such as USA, China and Europe and it’s a matter of time till they find their niche in Kenya.

In conclusion, architectural design and use of appropriate technology can greatly reduce the cost of construction of your house.

The Modern Green House or Glass House

Basically a green house is a building or a place where plants are grown and is made up of different types of materials such as glass or plastic roofs. These are also called a Glass House…

The structure of these houses is built in such a way that the incoming solar radiation from the sun is absorbed by the plants and the soil. The glass inside these green houses is partly opaque. This is because the thermal energy re-radiated by the green houses is trapped inside. The primary heating mechanism of the green house is convection.

There is some heat loss due to thermal conduction, but still there is a net increase in energy inside the green house. The miniature greenhouse is also known as cold frame. Greenhouses are divided in to two classifications namely glass greenhouses and plastic greenhouses.

Green houses for business operations use a high tech production technology. They generally produce flowers and vegetables. Glass greenhouses are filled with some of the equipments like screening installations, and computers control the temperature settings for the lighting, heating and cooling.

Greenhouses are much helpful in the production of crops. They protect the crops from too much of heat or cold, dust. They also keep the plants away from the pests. Arable land can be converted into an arable land by means of these greenhouses. Generally greenhouses are often used for growing flowers, vegetables, fruits and tobacco. The greenhouse has its own requirements when compared to outdoor protection. Control the extreme of heat and humidity, proper irrigation for providing water etc is required in this green houses.

The temperature and humidity of green houses must be constantly monitored to ensure optimal conditions. Now days wireless sensor networks are used to gather data remotely. The data is transmitted to remote control location and is used to control the heating, cooling and irrigation systems.

Sell Your House Faster With an Open House

If you’re placing your home on the market, putting together an open house may assist in moving it quicker. This can generate the necessary visibility when you place your home on the market. This is a buyers market so an open house may attract a lot of attention. When folks are dropping by at all times and days of the week it can be stressful, but hang in there and keep it tidy. Prospective buyers want to see it clean.

When you advertise your open house, you can guarantee people will be stopping by. You should accommodate them by setting specific hours your house is available for viewing. I also recommend offering refreshments to your visitors. They will welcome the hospitality.

Open houses are typically organized by your real estate agent because they usually have a few to orchestrate at once. However, you can hold your own open house if your home is “for sale by owner” or maybe your simply assisting your agent to increase the likelihood for a faster sale. Either way you can facilitate or assist with the advertising to ensure a hefty turnout.

There are numerous low cost options for promoting your open house. Small classified ads and flyers are excellent for advertising. Be sure to include details that will interest potential buyers. If the prospect is viewing multiple homes in one day you want to make sure they have key points in mind that initially generated the interest.

Make yourself or your agent available during all open house hours. Your potential buyers have questions and you need to be present to answer them. The buyer may simply need a nudge with info to make an offer. You’re not just selling, they’re buying.

An open house may also entice people to make a quicker offer. They’re viewing the home with other buyers and their reactions may be the ticket to get an offer on the table. A buyer may like the house you’re selling, but if they suspect someone is going to buy it they may decide they must have it.

Planning an effective open house doesn’t have to be stressful. Planning in advance will help you put together an event that will fill your home with buyers and they will have a pleasant experience viewing your home. The small financial investment you make for advertising and refreshments will easily pay for your time and trouble. If you’re looking for buyers, hosting an open house can be a sure ticket for drawing them in. We typically all want what we can’t have and placing multiple buyers in one room to discuss the things they like about your home is usually a win-win situation for you – the seller.

Fishing House

My husband and I bought a little finishing house in Colorado as our little escape from the heat in Phoenix during the hot summer days. The house is located outside Durango at the lake; our closest neighbor is miles away from us and the closest grocery store is 45 minutes away. Since we both have crazy work schedules back in Phoenix, we wanted our summer home to be some kind of our gate away from the people and civilization.

As we do not have anything to cover the little boat that belongs to the property, and our garage is not ready yet, my husband – a retired military officer, came up with the idea of purchasing a camouflage netting; you know, the one the military use for their training purposes. In the beginning I did not think about it as a good idea because all I could picture was a piece of fabric on the top of our little boat; however, when my husband unpacked the camouflage netting and placed it over the little boat I was surprised how the boat blended in in the natural environment of bushes and trees! From the distance you would not be able to notice the boat and the effect was not bad!

We bought more camo nettings just in case we will need more in our little summer house.  I was impressed; the fabric was made very well and the colors were almost identical to the trees on our property. The extra ones we bought are still unpacked and we keep them in the storage room outside the house; my husband advised me that noting bad will happen to it because the fabric will work well in both cold and warm temperature.

I recently advised my girlfriend to purchase one for herself in case she needs to cover something up, as she also owns a little summer house in Colorado. I think the camo nettings are great and quite cheap as you can use them and re-use them for many seasons and purposes.

House Dust Mite


The body of a house dust mite is just visible against a dark background in normal light. A typical house dust mite measures 420 micrometers in length and 250320 micrometres (0.00980.013 in) in width. Both male and female adult house dust mites are creamy blue and have a rectangular shape. The body of the house dust mite also contains a striated cuticle. Like all acari, house dust mites have eight legs (except 3 pairs in the first instar). Dust mites can be transported in dust bunnies or by minor air currents generated from normal household activities[verification needed].

Life cycle

The average life cycle for a male house dust mite is 10 to 19 days. A mated female house dust mite can live for 70 days, laying 60 to 100 eggs in the last 5 weeks of her life. In a 10 week life span, a house dust mite will produce approximately 2000 fecal particles and an even larger number of partially digested enzyme-covered dust particles.

Habitat and food

The house dust mite survives in all climates, even at high altitude. A person sheds about 1.5 grams of skin cells and flakes every day (approximately 0.30.45 kg per year), which is enough to feed roughly a million house dust mites under ideal conditions.[verification needed] If trying to control house dust mites, humidity should be kept low. House dust mites thrive in the indoor environment provided by homes, specifically in bedrooms and kitchens. Dust mites survive well in mattresses, carpets, furniture and bedding, with figures around 188 animals/g dust. Even in dry climates, house dust mites survive and reproduce easily in bedding (especially in pillows), deriving moisture from the humidity generated by human breathing, perspiration, and saliva.

House dust mites consume minute particles of organic matter. Like all acari, house dust mites have a simple gut; they have no stomach but rather diverticulae, which are sacs or pouches that divert out of hollow organs. Like many decomposer animals, they select food that has been pre-decomposed by fungi. House dust mites eat the same particle several times, only partially digesting it each time; between feedings, house dust mites leave particles to decompose further. Only when the particles are fully digested do they enter the dust mite’s fecal matter.[verification needed]

Asthma and allergies

Main articles: Asthma and Allergy

Allergens produced by house dust mites are among the most common triggers of asthma. A safety and tolerability clinical trial (Phase IIa) has been completed with positive results by Cytos Biotechnology using an immunotherapeutic (CYT003-QbG10) for treatment of house dust mite-triggered allergies.

Some main signs of house dust mite allergies are itchiness, sneezing, inflamed or infected eczema, watering/reddening eyes, runny nose and clogging in the lungs.

Avoidance of dust mites and their allergens is the best course of action for those with dust mite allergies. The use of bedding that acts as a barrier to the dust mite and its allergens is a good first step. The bedding should also be breathable and be able to withstand frequent washing. However, a home allergen reduction plan has been recognized as being an essential part to the management of asthma symptoms. and therefore all aspects of the home environment should be considered (proper vacuuming, use of air cleaners, off-gassing from paint and cleaning products, etc). The Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America as well as the Asthma Society of Canada certify products that may be used in a home allergen reduction plan in a Program called Asthma and Allergy Friendly.

Most people who have dust mite allergy sneeze when they wake up in the morning. They will generally feel better as they go out of their rooms, then at night when they sleep, the cycle repeats again. This can cause the allergy to be chronic and long lasting. To determine the concentration of dust mites the Acarex Test is performed.[verification needed]

Myths and misconceptions

It is commonly believed that the accumulated detritus from dust mites can add significantly to the weight of mattresses and pillows. While it is true that the fecal matter of dust mites will increase over time, there is no scientific evidence for these claims.

Allergy and asthma sufferers are also often advised to avoid feather pillows due to the presumed increased presence of the house dust mite allergen (Der p I). The reverse, however, is true. A 1996 study from the British Medical Journal has shown that polyester fibre pillows contained more than 8 times the total weight of Der p I and 3.57 times more micrograms of Der p I per gram of fine dust than feather pillows.


Disodium octaborate tetrahydrate powder is often used to eradicate house dust mites.

A simple washing will remove most of the waste matter. Exposure to temperatures over 60 C (140 F) for a period of one hour or freezing, exposure to temperatures below 0 C (32 F), will typically prove fatal to house dust mites; a relative humidity less than 50 percent may also be fatal. Ten minutes in a household clothes dryer at lethal temperatures has been shown to be sufficient to kill all the dust mites in bedding. House dust mites reproduce quickly enough that their effect on human health can be significant.

The Fifth House

The House of Children, Intelligence and Competition


In Zodiac, Leo is the 5th house in the horoscope. We have already discussed separately about the characteristics and traits of Leo persons. Now about the 5th house.


The 5th house represent children, intelligence, morals, love and fortune, pregnancy and all matters about pregnancy, facility and sterility, conception, knowledge of future (astrology etc), sports and ministry of welfare etc (HRD), position in life, emotions. Body parts attributed to 5th house are liver, and some attribute heart also, belly intestines.


Now, in this write-up, we shall mention about the effects of 5th lord when placed in various houses i.e. from Lagan (first house to 12th house). In this case, Leo’s lord is the Sun and if the Sun comes in any of the 12th house, the effects shall be different. Now know more details about the 5th house and 5th lord.


Fifty Bhava (House) signify, among other, intelligence, father, atma, discrimination power, children, fame and position competition activities, love affairs, lottery, ambassadors, good or bad morals, mantra-tantra, high learning and wisdom, enormous riches, spiritual practice.


If the lord of the 5t occupies the 3rd the 6th or the 12th and is aspected by malefics, the person’s children die early.


If the Sun is in the 5th house and is badly placed, the father will die. If the lord of the 5th house joins favorable planets, the persons gets many issues.


If Jupiter becomes lord of the 5th and being powerful is aspected by the lord of the birth, the persons will have children.


If the 5th as well as its lord are placed between evil planets and Jupiter is in company with malefics, there will be loss of children.


If all the malefics occupy the 4th or id all of them occupy the 12th, the 5th, the 8th and Lagan the person’s family becomes completely extinct.


The person will have piercing intellectual if the 5th house is between beneficial planets.


If Saturn is in the 5th, or aspects the lord of birth or Jupiter, there will be brain derangement.


If the lord of the 5th is masculine, joins a masculine sign and combines in a masculine navamsa, the first-born child to the native will be a male.


If the lord of the 5th joins a female sign with a feminine planet and combines in a feminine navamsa, the first born baby will be a female.

Now we discuss the effects of the 5th lord placed in various houses. The results would be modified as to how the 5th lord is aspected by malefics or benefices and the power of the 5th lord including with reference to rising degree and Nakshtra etc.


Lord Of 5th Bhava (5th House) in :-


First – Good Children, learned in Shastras, intelligent, thinker clever.


Second – Wealthy, famous, gains from speculation, lottery etc. (For loteery the conjunction of lord of 11th in second or his aspect on the lord of fifth in 2nd is necessary). He has many children, looks after his family and is loved by his wife.


Third – liked by brothers but backbiter, miser, selfish. This is not a good position as far as the native is concerned as the 3rd house is dusthana (bad house).


Fourth – Happy, father and mother long lived and prosperous, intelligent, minister, but few or no children because fourth is 12th to 5th and therefore, a house of loss for the 5th. It gives good results in other respects because the lord of 5th being the lord of trine is posited in a Kendra which is an auspicious house and from there aspects the 10th house, the house of profession and honors.


Fifth – Happiness from children, clever, intelligent, famous. Here the lord of the 5th is in his own house. Therefore, all good results of the significations of this house may be expected.


Sixth – Enmity or quarrels with his own children or childless, or adopts a child.


Seventh – Respected, happiness from children, charitable, good for conjugal life.


Eighth- Few Children or no children, asthma patient, loss of peace of mind, short-tempered, unhappy.


Ninth – Son becomes famous, high officer, minister. He is wealthy happy, author, famous and brings good name to his family.


Tenth – This is an excellent position for the 5th lord. He becomes wealthy, holds high position in government or otherwise, gets name and fame; but few children.


Eleventh – This is also a very good position. When the lord of a house aspects his own house particularly from an auspicious house, the aspected house get strengthened and gives good results according to its significations. The native is wealthy, famous has children, popular, highly intelligent author and powerful.


Twelfth – Loss of children or child-ness or adopts a child. This is a bad position because the 12th house is the house of loss for the native and it is 8th from fifth house. It may be noted here when the lord of a house is in 3rd, 6th, 8th or 12th from his own house, the significations of that house suffer. This principle is of great importance and should always be kept in mind. The exception to this principle is that when the lord of house is in 3rd, 6th, 8th or 12th from his own house; but that house is an auspicious house, the significations of the house will suffer, but predominantly good results will be seen. Thus lord of 5thgives good results to the native if he is in 10th house which is 6th from 5th, as the 10th is a very powerful and auspicious Kendra house.
