  • Populations in developing countries are growing so quickly that the land and water are unable to sustain them. In most developing countries, prime farmland and fresh water are already fully utilized. Although irrigation can be employed to bring land in arid areas into production, it often leads to salinization. In some countries, the amount of newly irrigated land is equalled by salinized irrigated land going out of production. Moreover, irrigation water is often drawn from river basins or aquifers shared by several countries, and friction over its use is common....

  • It is widely accepted that irrigation allows for the increase and stability in agrarian yields, being a necessary tool to support food supplies and necessities for certain raw materials in the world. However, irrigated agriculture is also considered the most significant fresh water consumer and one of the main causes of pollution, degradation and depletion of natural resources. These impacts are primarily related to changes in the water cycle, salinization of agricultural soils, and salinization and pollution of water resources due to the use of agrochemicals....

  • A little something about Origami Boxes: the art of origami is not just about pretty flowers or birds or animals… it can also be about creating something that’s actually really useful! I’ve got little paper boxes all over my house, mainly in my office to keep little things in, but also in the lounge to keep dried flowers in, and other ornaments, but to be honest they’re great ornaments on their own! Especially if you make them with beautiful paper… and they are so easy!, Origami boxes are quite useful as gift boxes and small containers. They're fun to make...

  • In today’s practical and cost-conscious world, sheet-metal parts have already replaced many expensive cast, forged, and machined products. The reason is obviously the relative cheapness of stamped, or otherwise mass-produced parts, as well as greater control of their technical and aesthetic parameters. That the world slowly turned away from heavy, ornate, and complicated shapes, and replaced them with functional, simple, and logical forms only enhanced this tendency. Remember old bathtubs? They used to be cast and had ornamental legs.

  • MINING For thousands of years, people have mined native metals such as gold, silver, and copper, and turned them into tools, weapons, and ornaments. At some point, they discovered that heating far more abundant metal ores in a charcoal furnace separated the pure metal, and this led to the widespread use of materials like iron. Other minerals such as flint, building stone, and gemstones have also been mined since prehistory. Fuels such as coal, oil, and natural gas have been exploited more recently.

  • In speaking of art we often contrast the useful or mechanical arts with the Fine Arts; by these terms we denote the difference between the arts which are used in making such things as are necessary and useful in civilized life, and the arts by which ornamental and beautiful things are made. The fine arts are Architecture, Sculpture, Painting, Poetry, and Music, and though we could live if none of these existed, yet life would be far from the pleasant experience that it is often made to be through the enjoyment of these arts....

  • There is a peculiar charm about the relics found in an old home--a home from which many generations of fledglings have flown. As each milestone in family history is passed some once common object of use or ornament is dropped by the way. Such interesting mementoes of past generations accumulate, and in course of time the older ones become curios. It is to create greater interest in these old-world odds and ends--some of trifling value to an outsider, others of great intrinsic worth--that this book has been written. ...

  • Works of art inspired by ancient Greek sculpture often took on new forms and meanings in the Roman home. In Greece, monumental statues of gods and goddesses were placed in sanctuaries and public spaces, but in villas and houses around the Bay of Naples, formerly public art became private and, often, decorative and functional pieces. For example, a sculpture of Apollo, the god of learning and music, was made to hold a tray and placed in a Pompeian home.

  • The Vedas show us Indra, armed with a wooden club, seizing a stone with which to pierce Vritra, the genius of evil.1 Does not this call up a picture of the earliest days of man upon the earth? His first weapon was doubtless a knotty branch torn from a tree as be hurried past, or a stone picked up from amongst those lying at his feet. These were, however, but feeble means with which to contend with formidable feline and pachydermatous enemies. Man bad not their great physical strength; he was not so fleet a runner as many of...
