Needlework Nowadays there are many ways to express yourself. Someone like weaving with beads, embroidery someone, and someone enthusiastic about the modeling. Needlework in general, is an art form, which can deal not only with the master, but ordinary people for whom this is just a way to escape from everyday life to express themselves in art, as well as to share with others the fruits of their labors. Needlework is just a way to make your home more comfortable. So nice when surrounding things are done personally. Indeed, in each of them a piece of energy you invest, positive, joy.

Engage in needlework always just for fun. Do not forget to create something for myself. Jewelry, necklace, earrings, brooches – all in your clay rukah.Polimernaya One type of needlework – the creation of jewelry made from polymer clay. Polymer clay (or thermoplastic) – a substance similar to clay, from which, in principle, You can do anything, which is then baked in the oven and hardens. It's pretty easy stuff, easy to run. Even the children for whom a needlework novelty, easily able to create something – anything. How do I find stuff? Very easy! Enter in any search engine internet – Polymer Clay purchase, and then your choice of shops, in which it is sold. Well, after the case for small, when the clay is in your hands begin to sculpt, invent and You must have something special.

Thermoplastic – it's not just artificial clay. Noteworthy is the very fact that using it can create or simulate virtually any texture, artistic effect or a surface. For example, wood, glass, fabric, porcelain or even ivory. The possibilities are almost endless. Everything depends on the talent, imagination and skill. One of the most popular techniques of working with Polymer clay – Millefiori. This ancient technique of Italian glassblowers. In working with a thermoplastic, it became applicable in 1981. Esther Olsen manufactured from plastics small decorative candies. Later this technique in the world of polymer clay, called caning (kening). In Russian, these wedges with a picture inside is simply called sausages. Indeed, the shape and pattern in the context they are very similar to that meat product. And a small example of the handiwork of the polymer. Make a flower! Before using the mash and roll out the polymer clay. Any colors, to your taste. From the basic colors sausage rolls and cut it into seven parts by 2cm. One brusochek obvorachivaem stripe of another color – this will be our core. The remaining blocks should be laid around, and with a toothpick make the shape of petals clearer. Once again, a strip of contrasting color obvorachivaem, indenture of the same toothpick at the junction of the petals. When put together all the pieces, and watch carefully so that between them there was no air or holes. Now start gently and slowly rolling resulting brusochek. When we got the uniform thin sausage, cut it in half and look at the resulting pattern. If you are satisfied, cut to the required number of parts. And voila, you get wonderful, lovely beads from polymer clay. And in conclusion, I wish – Be creative, all in your hands!

Engineering Research

Causes of building collapse remain unknown. The absence a clear answer about the causes of deformations of buildings and structures have long pay attention to many experts. Typically, this circle includes mining engineers Profile, surveyors and Geophysics – the people who worked on the underground mines and quarries and familiar with the concepts of the stress state of the geological environment. Most of them are inclined to think that an emergency condition of many engineering structures is caused by a wrong approach for the Engineering Research and underreporting of modern geodynamic activity of the geological environment. Until recently, geologists believe that the earth's crust, except in areas of active volcanism and manifestations seismic events (dangerous in terms of earthquakes) is at rest, ie immobile. However, at this stage with the commissioning of new measuring techniques, the use of satellite geodesy and development geophysical methods of investigation, it became apparent that the Earth's crust is constantly in motion. Roughly speaking, the earth goes right under our feet.

Displacement of the earth's surface and massive rocks have negligible amplitude and not visible to the eye but can have a significant impact, both on the rock mass, and on engineering structures. The mobility of the rock mass is related to their stress-strain state. In the Earth's crust is constantly affected by the forces (gravity, generating a voltage on the weight of rocks and tectonic forces), resulting in geological environment is always in a state of stress. Because the rocks always overstretched, they begin to deform and collapse.
