Ohio STARS 2012 Costume Campaign

Woo-hoo! Halloween is just around the corner! What are you dressing up as? A witch? A pirate? A clown? A nun? An inappropriately sexy fairy tale character?

There are a lot of options for playing dress up during Halloween. While you’re thinking about your costume, the Ohio STARS – Students Teaching About Racism in Society – asks you to think before you settle on a costume. For the past two years they have launched a poster campaign aimed at bringing awareness to racially and culturally insensitive and offensive costumes.

I’d also say have a second thought about woman- and gay-bashing costumes. Maybe leave the ditzy blonde, the dirty hooker and flaming queer costumes at home this year?

These are three of the posters from the “We’re a culture, not a costume” campaign. This year’s theme is “You wear the costume for one night. I wear the stigma for life.” You can click on any of the images to be redirected to the STARS webpage, which includes all six of this year’s posters as well as those from the 2011 campaign, “This is not who I am, and this is not okay.”

Asian Stereotype Costume
 
African Stereotype Costume
 
Black Stereotype Costume

I think this campaign is targeted to people who may be unaware of the implicit racism that is prevalent in so many Halloween costumes. Hell, the costume companies do a great job at perpetuating racial and cultural stereotypes in their manufactured, packaged ensembles, and if they say it’s okay… Last weekend I stopped in to one of the temporary Halloween stores that pop up at this time of year and saw getups for a drunk Mexican, a ghetto pimp, and a hillbilly hick. Srsly?

Have fun, dress up as whatever you like. Only you know the company and context in which you and your costume will be seen, and this does play a role in appropriateness. Or maybe you’re going for inappropriate. *shrugs*

No one’s telling you what to wear, just asking you to be aware of what message you and your costume will be sending. Are you cool with it? Cool. Does it make you uncomfortable? Go change.

    Привет господа! https://drive.google.com/file/d/14O9w55SwmlE2-tlnmfFQS62GmpBmQNET/view?usp=sharing
    Ремонт сделан, но сколько сил нужно потратить на уборку после него! Люди просто теряются при виде гор строительного мусора и заляпанных окон и дверей.Уборка после ремонта требует опыта, убирать нужно аккуратно, чтобы не испортить дорогой ремонт и не повредить элементы дизайна нового интерьера. Стоит задуматься и о том, сколько денег придется потратить на уборку после ремонта своими силами: закупка необходимых чистящих и моющих средств, а также защита от пыли и вредного воздействия химических веществ (перчатки, респираторы, укрывные материалы, не говоря уже об одежде). Ведь многие страдают аллергией, а испорченную кожу рук после работы с агрессивными материалами быстро не восстановить. Особую сложность представляет собой уборка помещений после ремонта, если мебель из них не выносилась. Даже если все было тщательно укрыто, пыль проникла везде, в каждую щель. Для осуществления такой уборки требуется специальное оборудование, а ковры и мебель желательно не просто пропылесосить, но и помыть.

    Приветствую Вас господа
    Роторный и шнековый способы бурения. Их отличия.В зависимости от глубины бурения и типа почвы компания “БухтехСервис” применяет 2 способа бурения.
    Роторный способ бурения. Выполняем с помощью передвижной буровой установки УРБ–2а2 на шасси ЗИЛ–131. Применяемый инструмент – шарошечные долота с широким диапазоном диаметров 75–300мм. Благодаря универсальности этого способа с легкостью разрушаются мягкие и твердые горные грунтовые слои.rotornoe-burenie
    Вращательную мощность ротор направляет долотом на рабочую колонну. Для удаления разрушенной породы делают промывку через буровой насос с помощью специальных полимеров. После того, как пройдена бурением первая часть скважины, опускают первую обсадную колонну (кондуктор), чтобы перекрыть слабые неустойчивые породы и верхние водоносные горизонты, производят гидроизоляцию затрубного пространства, закачивают в него приготовленную смесь с цементом. Бурение скважины продолжается долотом меньшего диаметра внутри обсадных труб до отмеченной глубины, затем в скважину опускают следующую обсадную колонну или эксплуатационную колонну, которая будет находиться в водоносном слое.

    Роторный метод обладает высокой продуктивностью и способностью обрабатывать любой тип почвы, но также и более дорогостоящий нежели шнековый.

    Шнековый способ бурения популярен среди населения по причине своей простоты и доступности. Его используют в рыхлой почве и грунте средней твердости. Отличительным в технологии пробуривания шнеком является то, что отсутствует необходимость в промывке водой, так как снятие набившихся разломанных слоев почвы осуществляет шнек. Все дело в скорости обрабатывания. Но если в почве попадутся камни, использование шнека станет проблематично. Рационально использовать этот метод при строительстве скважин малой глубины в почве.

    Несомненный плюс в пользу способа с применением шнека – доступная стоимость.

    Технология шнекового бурения позволяет добиваться глубины бурения до 40 метров, в том числе и зимой в сильные морозы. Гораздо более глубокие скважины бурят посредством роторного способа. Он справляется с любым грунтом, в то время как шнековый способ позволяет обрабатывать только сухие и не самые твердые виды почв.

    У каждого способа свои плюсы и минусы. При выборе способа бурения для своего случая нужно учитывать тип почвы в своей местности, а также климатические условия.

    Приветствую Вас дамы и господа

    Канализация
    Наличие отопления и водоснабжения в загородном жилье составляет часть комфортного проживания, но довольно трудно представить благоустроенную жизнь за городом без автономной канализации. Нет, можно конечно и дальше изображать радость от походов в дождь и в снег на улицу до выгребной ямы. А можно провести систему канализации, и жить еще с большим удобством.

    Канализация для загородных домов – это специальное очистное сооружение, куда попадают сточные или иные воды, проходят очистку за счёт технических или других механизмов.

    Существует несколько вариантов канализационных систем:
    Накопитель без дна с грунтовой фильтрацией;
    Установка накопительной емкости;
    Использование септика;
    Сооружение станции биологической очистки.
    Любая из этих систем состоит из внешних коммуникаций, подведенных к колодцу или септику, и разводки труб по дому.

    Выбор сооружения для вашего участка зависит от многих факторов, наши специалисты помогут разобраться Вам в этих вопросах. Сложные инженерные системы требует тщательного расчета и четкого воплощения. Затраты на устранение аварий и реконструкцию обойдутся дороже, чем обращение к профессионалам нашей компании.

    Наша компания оказывает услуги по монтажу канализационной системы, и они включают в себя
    строительство переливных колодцев диаметром от 1 метра до 2 метров (подходит для участков, где до 3-5 метров под землю будет песок)
    монтаж септика активного или неактивного (данный вариант удобен, если на участке глина)
    Использование септика;
    Прокладка канализационных труб от дома до приемных колодцев.
    В любом случае сооружение канализационных систем – это очень индивидуально и нашим специалистам необходимо видеть участок, чтобы принять решение, какой вариант подойдет именно Вам.

    DUI allegations need most of the skilled tools commonly used in criminal cases. protecting a DWI begins with deciding not one of your rights on the constitution are violated. Because a police officer is in direct contact with you, while they are basically the single witnesses all of the time, the training and procedural conduct is of the essence. We all create mis haps, and police are no no exception to the rule. The Occasion happens with obvious accusation which will lead to probable cause. For example, a person gets flashed over for driving too slow at 1 a.m.. The cop takes the usual suspicion that you committed a moving violation, swerving. Now, as the police begins to start visual connection or moves in closer to the vehicle, he or she will say you are showing red eyes, or there is an smell of liquor. This raises the reasonable suspicion of recklessness to providing a police officer a good idea that someone may be operating while under the influence. 80% of cops will say smell of beer, watery eyes, or lazy speech. They may also insinuate you were rumaging around trying to get your id and proof of insurance handy. Now a person will be likely commanded to get out from the car and do regular physical sobriety checks. Those are SFST’s are learned under NHTSA (National road Traffic precautionary Administration) regulations and need to be followed per situation. If you do perform the checks, the police will make mistakes that will have the check, or tests thrown out of from evidence. Things such as physical impairments and the best situational conditions can be integrated into results of your performance. (example: someone can not perform a walk and turn check on ramped stret). A person will usually take a breathalyzer test. There are accidents in these gadgets also, after all they are devices that need to be maintained and training on for days. The incarceration is captured at the instance the police turns on their red and blues. It is through this captured footage we are able to secure an factual opinion if the cops performing of the checks, to the clients ability taking the checks. If you give an OK to the tests or not, a person will go to jail.
