Delft’s New Train Station

Intro: Mecanoo Architects design the new Delft station, marking one’s arrival at Delft as a ceremonial and memorable experience…

Copy: Delft’s new train station is now in use. It was officially opened on Saturday, 28th February 2015. The station, in combination with municipal offices and the new city hall, sits atop a new train tunnel built in place of the old concrete viaduct that has divided the city in two since 1965. From the outset, Mecanoo’s idea has been to design a station that makes it clear to visitors that they have arrived in Delft.

Says Francine Houben, Mecanoo’s creative director, -Coming up the escalators, the impressive ceiling with the historic map of Delft unfolds. When you look outside, you see the city and the old station as a modern -View of Delft’ by the painter Johannes Vermeer. Arriving in Delft is now an unforgettable experience!-

The character of Delft, epitomised by the combination of past and future, was the starting point for the design led by Francesco Veenstra of Mecanoo. A vaulted ceiling features an enormous historic 1877 map of Delft and its surroundings, connecting the station with the city hall that is currently under construction. Within the station hall, walls and columns are adorned with a contemporary re-interpretation of Delft Blue tiles. In 2017, you will be able to walk directly from the station into the city hall.

The glass skin of the building is designed to reflect the Dutch skies. The panels of fused glass with lens-like spheres reference a vernacular window design that can be seen throughout the historic city. The combination and rhythm of open panels of high performance glass and closed fused glass panels enable a high degree of energy efficiency.

Throughout the design process the building volume has been shaved and reformed to create a compact, highly efficient building form. The lowered roof lines at the corners provide a gradual transition towards the existing small-scale development of the Delft city centre and the adjacent Wester Quarter. Incisions in the glass volume form a pattern of alleyways and courtyards, which are themselves inspired by the intricate structure of Delft itself.

The station hall is a part of the first phase of the development of the station and municipal office. When the old railway viaduct will be demolished in 2017, and the city hall and entire municipal offices completed, the whole complex will be open to the public.

Georgia Transportation – How large amounts of people travel around

Georgia Transportation – How large amounts of people travel around

When there is a big group of people that you have to move from one place to another, there might not be as many options for you to look into. Hence, you might want to look at some of the existing options and choosing the best one amongst them. If you happen to be in the state of Georgia, this is not a particularly hard task to do and you should be able to easily choose something that you might seem fit for your purpose. One such option would perhaps be to go in for an Atlanta charter bus.

With the charter bus, you can carry a large number of people in one trip and save time as well as money. Fortunately, the Georgia transportation is such that you can easily get the charter bus without having to try as hard. There are a number of companies out there that are willing to give you these kinds of buses without hassling you too much. The costs are really unbelievable and you might end up opting for this service even if your group happens to shrink in size at a later time. The joy of everyone travelling together is quite like nothing else, which is after all what the charter bus is all about.

Hence, with all of these advantages, you should conclude that this option is a good one even for those who would like to arrange transportation for large events like weddings and other such social gatherings. People who have tried out the wedding Atlanta transportation option are quite satisfied with it and in fact recommend it to others as well. Most of the options involve things like buses and coaches, which can serve their purpose well for weddings and other such similar social gatherings. You should really hire these services the next time you plan for a wedding.

Finally, for any occasion that has a lot of people, there is always the option of the Atlanta coach. These coaches have been serving people for quite some time now, and if you need one, you can actually rent it out. Normally, they come equipped with a driver as well, since they require a special license to be driven on the roads. If you have someone with this license, you might be able to rent only the coach for a lesser amount of money. One thing that is guaranteed is that you will love the experience and won’t have anything much to complain about.

MTIlimos offers Atlanta limousine, Atlanta bus service, Atlanta airport limousine and Wedding Atlanta transportation.

Daniel Ricciardo plays down spin in Silverstone testing

Daniel Ricciardo plays down spin in Silverstone testing

Daniel Ricciardo

Daniel Ricciardo minimised the importance of an off-track moment on what was effectively an audition for a seat with Red Bull in 2014.

The Australian, who races for Red Bull junior team Toro Rosso, lost the car at Silverstone’s Luffield corner on his seventh lap of a test on Thursday.

“I had a small off, but otherwise it was a trouble-free day. The off was my mistake; I lost the rear,” he said.

The 24-year-old added: “I drove to my ability and did what I could.”

Ricciardo set the third-fastest time of the day in his afternoon’s running in the Red Bull. He also set the quickest lap, behind the wheel of his regular Toro Rosso in the morning, when he was 0.215 seconds quicker than he was in the Red Bull.

The second-fastest driver was another Red Bull junior, Spaniard Carlos Sainz, also in the Toro Rosso.

Sainz, who races in the GP3 feeder series, took over the car from Ricciardo in the afternoon and was 0.044secs slower.

Ricciardo said: “It was a good opportunity to get behind the wheel and experience two different beasts.

“In terms of the inevitable speculation, I think this test is something for Red Bull to look at, but there’s still the rest of the season with Toro Rosso to do, so I’ll switch my focus back to that and won’t get too caught up in any rumours.”

Portuguese Antonio Felix Da Costa,  who races in the Formula Renault 3.5 series and is a possibility for a seat at Toro Rosso next season, drove the Red Bull in the morning and was 0.771secs slower

than Ricciardo managed later on.

The headline lap times are not necessarily an accurate comparison of relative pace because it is impossible to know the specifications in which the teams run the cars, with fuel loads, tyre choice and a number of other factors all having a significant effect on performance.

The ‘young-driver’ test has that name because rules state only drivers who have competed in no more than two grands prix may take part.

However, it is a misnomer this year because race drivers have been allowed to feature, under strictly controlled conditions, so they can try out a new type of tyre introduced by supplier Pirelli.

The Italian company has changed the design of the tyre in an attempt to prevent the multiple blow-outs that were experienced at the British Grand Prix at Silverstone last month.

So far at the test there have been no problems with the tyres, which are being used by all drivers.

Among the hopefuls to get an outing in a Formula 1 car were Britons James Calado, who races in GP2, and Oliver Turvey, a McLaren test driver.

Calado set the sixth-fastest time of the day in his Force India.

He said: “It has been fantastic to get an opportunity to drive this week. It’s another world compared to what I am used to with so much to learn.”

Turvey was just ahead of him in fifth place in the McLaren, in which Dane Kevin Magnussen set the fastest time of the first day of the test on Wednesday.

How To Train Bloodhounds For Search And Rescue!

How To Train Bloodhounds For Search And Rescue!

Preparing Your Bloodhound For Training!!

Training a bloodhound is a bit different than training a regular dog. They are naturally clumsey animals that dont particularly make good for obedience training. They are very emotional animals that need to be tendered and cared for to get the best training results from them. They love to be loved on and cared for. This will help you tremendously when you begin your training them.

Training Bloodhounds To Search and Rescue!

Your very first day of training will consist of a rubber ball or golf ball which ever you choose to use. For the first couple of days you want to play pitch and fetch with him. This process is teaching him to retrieve things and getting him set in a pattern of doing this.
On your third day you will want to bring someone else in to use as a hide and seek player.
Let your partner come over so the bloodhound can scent him and then let your partner go hide just a little ways away and let the bloodhound go and find him. Continue performing this task for a couple of days each time moving the hiding technique a little further away until finally the search is being accomplished within a block or more.

Advanced Training Techniques for your Bloodhound!

Now that you have the bloodhound finding your partner on a regular basis within a block or so. Its now time to begin his real mission—Search and Seisure. This best place to perform this training is in a country setting. Take a piece of your partners clothing from home with you for this training. Let your partner get out of your vehicle and run about a half of mile into the woods and hide. Take the clothing you brought with you and let the bloodhound smell the scent and go with him to find your partner. Remember this is a game to the bloodhound so you want him to continue believing that. Each time he finds your partner give him a treat and a lot of love. This will encourage him to continue performing this task. After a very short period of time your bloodhound will be able to find your partner wherever he goes as long as there is a scent to be picked up by your bloodhound.

FIFA end Cameroon exile

FIFA end Cameroon exile

Cameroon have been welcomed back to the world of international football after FIFA lifted their competitive ban on Monday.

The Cameroon Football Association were on July 4 excluded from all international action due to the country’s government becoming involved in the running of the national team.

The news came as a massive blow to the Indomitable Lions as they were in danger of missing out on playing their final 2014 World Cup qualifier, where they will meet Libya to decide who goes through from the group stages.

However, coach Volker Finke’s men will now be able to defend their top-spot in Group I after FIFA confirmed the ban had been lifted.

A statement from world football’s governing body read: “FIFA passed a decision (Monday), 22 July 2013, to lift the suspension of the Cameroonian Football Association (FECAFOOT) given that the conditions previously set have been met.

“As requested by the FIFA Emergency Committee, the normalisation committee that was appointed on 20 July 2013 was able to take up its duties this Monday, 22 July 2013, at the FECAFOOT headquarters, with FIFA and CAF observers present.

“The lifting of the suspension means that FECAFOOT’s clubs, officials and other representatives can immediately resume their activities, which had been interrupted. The same applies for the resumption of the courses and various programmes provided by FIFA, CAF and other member associations.

“FIFA and CAF will continue to closely monitor the situation, particularly in relation to the revision of the FECAFOOT statutes.”

Training In MLM – Why It Is Important To Train Your Downlines

Training In MLM – Why It Is Important To Train Your Downlines

Did you know that it is important to give your downlines regular training in MLM? Yes, it is. Network marketing is not a one-man show. It is a team effort, and how successful you become as an individual pretty much depends on how successful your downlines are individually. In this article, I will be explaining more about this topic. By the end of this article I believe you will understand this better, and you will know how to leverage on these facts to build yourself a successful network.

Your Downlines Can Affect Your Earnings

This statement is true to a certain extent. Your earnings should be based on your personal volume as well as your downlines individual volumes. However, as I mentioned earlier, network marketing is a team effort and not a one-man show. Hence, you need to be interested in your downlines’ success as well. If your downlines are successful, then you will be successful, but if they are struggling, then no matter how much volume you are able to achieve, your earnings will be greatly affected by your downlines’ inability to get high volumes. I will explain this in greater detail in the next point.

Your Downlines Are Meant To Support You

What is team effort without a team of people? Would you rather work with people who are useless or people who are competent? That is why I need to emphasize on training in MLM for your downlines. Each person has a role, and your goal should be to train your downlines to be independent and self-sufficient. Obviously, this may take some time, especially for those who lack the required skills. However, with patience and regular training in MLM, your downlines should eventually become experts in their own right. That is how they will be able to support you and your network.

Your Tasks Can Be Completed More Efficiently

And when the above two points are present, you will then be able to complete your tasks more efficiently. You need not spend time helping your downlines build their individual networks because they are able to do that themselves. Furthermore, you can even ask them to train their own downlines until they too are independent and self-sufficient. Now, while your downlines are managing their own networks, you can focus the bulk of your time focusing on building your own network. That is what I call team spirit!

With that, I hope you now have a better understanding of why you should train your downlines, so don’t forget to enroll them in regular training in MLM.

Do you want to get more training in MLM? I highly recommend a resource found on MLMMarketing.com where you get to learn how you can leverage on the internet to help you succeed in network marketing! Check it out for more training in MLM today!
