Everyone gets to set up a profile and included in your profile are the blogs you have submitted so anyone can see your blogs, which is great for gaining exposure! Here is my Socialspark profile.An exciting feature about SocialSpark is the number of ways you could participate.Paid Opportunities - Sponsored posts; advertisers set a price range and their specific requirements for the post.

GREENPIX ZERO ENERGY MEDIA WALL IN BEIJING
2008-05-05 15:28:00
This huge LED screen displays mesmerizing patterns of light and video to passersby. But the really amazing thing about the enormous wall of light is that it’s completely self-sustaining. That is, the light panels themselves harness the energy of the sun during the day to power a colorful light show at night.The GreenPix Zero Energy Media Wall , designed by Simon Giostra & Partners and Arup, uses thousands of solar capture cells attached to each of its glass panels to charge up during the day and then release dazzling light shows at night. It's the first time perforated photovoltaics laminated in glass have ever been used in a building in China, but if all goes off without a hitch, it most certainly won't be the last.The wall was constructed for visitors attending the 2008 Beijing Olympics, and located in the Xicui entertainment complex, near the site of the games.You can read more about the project over on the GreenPix website.

SOLAR LIGHTINGS FROM CHINA
2008-05-03 03:51:00
We were invited to visit sample of solar lightings from a supplier here in the Philippines.  The place is somewhere in Quezon City.  The images you see here are all running and gives light during the night.   These sample are just a few to the available designs.  You could actually have your own design to suit your preferences.  They are actually cheap compare to other commercially available.  They say solar lightings are good for the environment and in the long run could save you money from electrical bills.  But what we have learned is that you have to replace the batteries every year which is very expensive and one thing where will we the replaced batteries go.  So these types of lighting have made us think of using it.  But you could save a lot of electricity especially on street lamps who will be on overnight plus the amount that will be less on those electrical wires used on installing the lamps if it is conventional street lam...

MODEL HOUSE INTERIOR INSPIRATION 2
2008-05-01 05:56:00
Aside from the Model House Interior Inspiration , here are another some interiors for a model house somewhere in Laguna by a realty developer here in the Philippines.  These interiors are from 3 different model houses.  I just compiled them for you to have more ideas.  A good thing about this set of interiors, is that a regular could actually learn from it and adopt it to their home.  With these you could learn that a good interior does not really need expensive furnitures, gorgeous built-ins. imported ceramic accent accents.  A good interior always depends on the comfortability of the space.  As long as you could feel at home at any interior, you will definitely find it useful.  Having expensive interior without you being comfortable with it is useless.  The room will just be a showcase of expensive stuffs.  Add color and lighting to adjust to your taste and mood.  Look at the images below to see more.

WORKS OF RON MUECK
2008-04-26 16:40:00
Ron Mueck (born 1958) is an Australian hyperrealist sculptor working in Great Britain.  Mueck's early career was as a model maker and puppeteer for children's television and films, notably the film Labyrinth for which he also contributed the voice of Ludo, and the Jim Henson series The Storyteller.Mueck moved on to establish his own company in London, making photo-realistic props and animatronics for the advertising industry. Although highly detailed, these props were usually designed to be photographed from one specific angle hiding the mess of construction seen from the other side. Mueck increasingly wanted to produce realistic sculptures which looked perfect from all angles.In 1996 Mueck transitioned to fine art, collaborating with his mother-in-law, Paula Rego, to produce small figures as part of a tableau she was showing at the Hayward Gallery. Rego introduced him to Charles Saatchi who was immediately impressed and started to collect and commission work. This led to the...

STERN PINBALL - LAST STANDING PINBALL MANUFACTURER IN THE WORLD
2008-04-26 14:52:00
Pinball games was a hit back then but now less and less people are playing it. Didi you know that at present there is only one company making these entertainment stuff. That sole survivor of the pinball age is Stern Pinball, based outside of Chicago, and it's the last purveyor of this relatively low-tech entertainment left. And things aren't entirely rosy for Stern Pinball. While they used to pump out 27,000 pinball machines a year, they're down to a mere 10,000 now, most of which end up going to homes rather than to arcades. It's a sad state of affairs. But the owner, Gary Stern, can't really imagine that pinball is on thay out. He thinks that it's like a sport; while it may wane in popularity, it'll never go away.

Remember the Toilet House posted last October.  Those where only 3D images of the images you see here and some construction picture updates of the house.  A couple of months ago, the Toilet House was done constructing and now the house is standing as you can see in the images.  Alongside with the exterior images where interior images just to show you how elegant and beautiful the house has turned out.  The house is a 419sq m structure with two bedrooms, two guestrooms and other rooms, the two-storey house of course features three deluxe toilets.

If you would like to visit this house you can go to Sim Jae-duck native city of Suweon, 40km south of Seoul.The feeling of something you have designed that had been into a reality is an overwhelming much more if your design is more of this type.  Nice.  How I much love White structures so simple yet expres...

2008-04-22 10:06:00
Here is another free e-book that you could read during your past time.  According to Wikipedia, Raymond Zinke Gallun"was born in Beaver Dam, Wisconsin. He lived a drifter's existence, working a multitude of jobs around the world in the years leading up to World War II."

The Planet Strappers started out as The Bunch, a group of student-astronauts in the back room of a store in Jarviston, Minnesota. They wanted off Earth, and they begged, borrowed and built what they needed to make it. They got what they wanted--a start on the road to the stars--but no one brought up on Earth could have imagined what was waiting for them Out There! Get the free -Ebook - The Planet Strappers

THE EFFECT OF COLOR TO STRUCTURES
2008-04-21 16:37:00
 This will show how color could greatly affect the look of any structure.  The two images you see here are great examples on how color could change the appearance of any structure or anything for that matter The above image is the original look of the clubhouse of one of the real estate company in the Philippines before it was change to image below.You could see that the original color of the accent stones was red and it does not blend well the overall structure.  Because of the color the original looks uninteresting, old, and just an ordinary structure with no appeal of whatsoever, but after coloring the accent stones and the window sill moulding into white, the structure now looks more interesting and classy.  The overall structure now has an appeal that could make you look twice.  This example only shows that careful selection of colors even to the smallest detail is important and helpful to bring the beauty of your structures.

WANNA HITCH ON MY BIKE?

I saw this on the Clubhouse amenity in one of our lower middle income subdivision projects in Laguna while we are doing the .  I guess this bike belongs to a construction worker in one of the construction projects there.   Through the history of mankind, Innovation always comes out because there is a need for it.  In the vicinity, public transport is a shortage and expensive and the distance to the main town is far.  The owner of this bike must have a relative or a close friend along with him that works near the vicinity as well.  That buying another bike is costly that adding a scrap pieces of wood to it.  I hope if that is the case, how sweet it is to see two male on this bike the other one seating on the built-up seat.  As I was thinking of the use of this, it does not help to think that it could also be used as a paid lift or hitch, here in the Philippines it could be possible.

BAHRAIN WORLD TRADE CENTER

The successful rotation of the blades involved collaboration between Atkins architects and engineers and turbine specialists Norwin, who were in Bahrain for the milestone event. “Having all three turbines spinning simultaneousl...

NAYONG FILIPINO - CLARK
2008-04-10 10:45:00
It was an accidental trip to the Nayong Filipino at Clark Expo Center in Pampanga.  It was just a cruise inside Clark Air Base until we saw a sign pointing to the direction of Nayong Filipino.  At first we thought it was already a bygone place. No cars parked outside, no festivities whatsoever. But still we went inside the Nayong Filipino compound and was greeted by a nice looking place with lots of native Filipino houses and a grand old house that reminds us of the Spanish houses owned by famous Filipinos in Cavite, Ilocos and other historic places in the Philippines.The Nayong Filipino in Clark is a cluster of replicas of houses, churches, Spanish type “plaza” with a replica of a grand old Barasoain Church at the center.  But on the adjacent area lies the good part about Nayong Filipino in Clark. Its a small community of Ifugao and Kalinga huts which are authentically constructed complete with their respective traditional furnishings. The plac...
GOOD FRIDAY RITUAL - PHILIPPINES

Yeah yeah yeah... this post is bit late (wooo... a bit late???)  These pictures are scenarios in the Philippines every Good Friday of every Year.  People do this kind of penitence to atoll for their sins and to show their belief or love for Christianity or Catholic for that matter.  There are even person crucified in the cross just like a re-enactment of  the crucifixion of Jesus as per what the Holy Bible is saying.  Blood blood... This is a bit fun to watch and a bit silly.  Why?  You tell me why these events have to be practiced?  Are these for their so called God? Are these for a show-off?  I heard some areas pay for persons who do these things.  Is the Catholic religion in favor of these doings?  What do they get from all of these aside that tourist flock to our country just to see this kind of acts?  They said, its just a way of asking for forgiveness to their God, a way of thanking their God for the graces they recei...
