Why You Should Travel To New Places Using Navigation System

It is good to know where you are going as this will help you to get there faster. You will also know the best turns to make to get to the destination faster. Familiarity with a road will help you drive in the best speed and the right direction. It also means that you have knowledge on where the road is safe and where there are blind spots. The bmw navigation system is present to help all who have it installed in their cars to get to a place that they are not familiar with. It works well for many as on many occasions you will have a need to go to places that you are not know well. The navigator will give you the directions that you need to get to your destination.

When you have a companion who is familiar with the destination, you can get directions to the place from the individual.

Amphibious Houses - The Ultimate Guard Against Climate Change

Later this year, work will be starting on the first ever amphibious house to be built in the UK. The 225 sqm house will be Buckinghamshire, set a mere 10m from the banks of the Thames. While there will be a fixed foundation for the house, it will be designed to float up in case of flooding in the area, and Baca Artchitects is the design firm behind the innovative idea.
How Does Amphibious House Work?
The main section of the house will be built from lightweight timber, which will be nestled into a concrete hull shaped base, which creates a sort of free floating pontoon. The whole house will be set inside four vertical guideposts which will hold it in location, the same sort of guideposts you see used in marinas. They are a part of the visual design and will be a feature that can be seen on the outside of the home.

Best Credit Cards for Art Entrepreneurs

It's tough out there for art entrepreneurs right now – slow economy, high cost of living, everybody's wearing your favorite designer. We get it. As a business owner, credit is very important and can be the difference between paying the bills and going out of business. Although it's hard to find business credit cards that cater specifically to artists and art-related businesses (let us know in the comments of you know of any), there are plenty out there that target small business owners and entrepreneurs.

Many budget and finance blogs urge readers to do without credit cards, however, entrepreneurs have different needs and can't really do without credit. In fact, according to an article by Wharton business school, most entrepreneurs are funded through a combination of credit card debt, personal loans, and second mortgages. Artists and art entrepreneurs can be especially vulnerable to cash flow problems with long lead times between creation and sale.
