Eco-Friendly Fountains: Good for the Planet

Eco-Friendly Fountains: Good Planet 04035231.jpg Eco-Friendly Fountains: Good for the Planet Have you always wanted to beautify the look of your residence? Stop looking! Solar water fountains are the ideal solution - they bring elegance to any home and at the same time add financial value to the property. They offer all the valuable benefits of electric fountains, such as improving health and general well-being but they also provide tremendous monetary rewards. Even though there may be a greater expense at the beginning, the long-term investment will make it worthwhile. Despite periodic power shortages, your fountain will not be affected as it does not run on electricity.

Constant running water fountains will most probably lead to a higher electric bill at the end of the month. Even though you might not instantly see the short-term benefits, remember that your residence will certainly gain in value in the long-term.

Higher costs is not the only issue with using more electricity, the environment takes a big hit as well. Becoming “green” is just one of the advantages of installing a solar water fountain running only on the energy of the sun. The eco-system can only benefit from the use of solar powered houses and water fountains.

This kind of fountain needs less maintenance than others. Clogs don't occur because there is no motor - which means less cleaning. And since there is little cleaning to do, you will have more time to play!

The Main Characteristics of Ancient Greek Statues

The Main Characteristics of Ancient Greek Statues Up right up until the Archaic Greeks created the first freestanding statuary, a phenomenal achievement, carvings had mainly been accomplished in walls and pillars as reliefs. For the most part the statues, or kouros figures, were of adolescent and nice-looking male or female (kore) Greeks. The kouroi, viewed by the Greeks to portray beauty, had one foot stretched out of a fixed forward-facing pose and the male figurines were regularly undressed, with a strong, sturdy shape. The kouroi started to be life-sized starting in 650 BC.Main Characteristics Ancient Greek Statues 356277629591161819.jpg A huge era of improvement for the Greeks, the Archaic period introduced about more forms of government, expressions of art, and a greater comprehension of people and cultures outside of Greece.

Hydro-Statics & Water Fountains: An Overview

Hydro-Statics & Water Fountains: Overview 3123836681385431982.jpg Hydro-Statics & Water Fountains: An Overview When in equilibrium, liquid applies force to its container or any other material it comes in contact with. These fall into 2 categories, hydrostatic load or outside force. When applied against a level surface, the liquid exerts equal force against all points of that surface. Liquid in equilibrium will apply vertical pressure at every point of an object’s exterior when that object is fully submerged in the liquid. These vertical forces are buoyancy, and the concept by itself is more fully defined by Archimedes’principle. Liquid acted on by hydrostatic force is then subject to hydrostatic pressure at the point of contact. A city’s water supply system, fountains, and artesian wells are all good examples of the application of these principles on containers.
