History Poll and Water Fountain

Ancient World
As seen in tomb paintings from 3000 BC, the Egyptians planted gardens within the walled enclosures surrounding their homes. In time these gardens came to be formally laid out around a rectangular fish pond flanked by rows of fruit trees and ornamental plants.
In the highlands of Mesopotamia, the Assyrians and Persians planned rectangular walled formal gardens, irrigated by pools and canals and shaded by trees, usually set in vast plains. These gardens symbolized paradise and inspired Persian carpet designs.
Roman houses, similar to Greek houses, included a colonnaded garden, as depicted in wall paintings at Pompeii and as described by Pliny the Elder. The vast grounds of the Emperor Hadrian’s villa near Tivoli (2nd century AD) were magnificently landscaped. The Roman populace enjoyed gardens attached to the public baths.

Non-Western World
Living where the climate is generally hot and dry, the Muslims were inspired by the desert oasis and the ancient Persian paradise garden centered on water. Muslim gardens were usually one or more enclosed courts surrounded by cool arcades and planted with trees and shrubs. They were enlivened with colored tilework, fountains and pools, and the interplay of light and shade. Before the 15th century, the Moors in Spain built such gardens at Córdoba, Toledo, and especially at the Alhambra in Granada. Similar gardens, in which flowers, fruit trees, water, and shade were arranged in a unified composition, were built by the Mughals in 17th- and 18th-century India. The most notable examples are the Taj Mahal gardens in Agra and the Shalimar Gardens in Lahore.
In China, palaces, temples, and houses were built around a series of courtyards, which might include trees and plants (often in pots that could be changed with the seasons), and pools. The Imperial City in Beijing contained elaborate pleasure gardens with trees, artificial lakes and hillocks, bridges, and pavilions.
Japan has a long tradition of gardens inspired by those of China and Korea. Kyoto was especially famous for its gardens which included pools and waterfalls; rocks, stone, and sand; and evergreens. Every element of a garden was carefully planned, sometimes by Zen monks and painters, to create an effect of restraint, harmony, and peace.

Medieval, Renaissance, and Baroque Periods
In medieval Europe at the 9th-century Swiss abbey of St. Gall, the large garden was divided into four areas, for herbs, vegetables, fruits, and flowers. The gardens of most monasteries were surrounded by cloistered walks and had a well or fountain at the center, possibly inspired by Persian gardens, which was intended to enhance meditation.
During the Renaissance in Italy, castles gave way to palaces and villas with extensive grounds landscaped in the Roman tradition. Borders of tall, dark cypresses and clipped yew hedges, geometric flower beds, stone balustrades, fountains, and sculptures conformed strictly to the overall plan. Examples from the 15th century include the gardens of the Medici, Palmieri, and La Pietra villas in or near Florence. Among increasingly formal and elaborate villa complexes in the 16th century are the Villa Lante in Bagnaia and the Villa Farnese in Caprarola. Others are the Villa Madama and the Villa Medici in Rome and the Villa d’Este in Tivoli. Italian gardens of the 17th century became even more complex in the dramatic baroque style. They were distinguished by lavish use of serpentine lines, groups of sculptured allegorical figures in violent movement, and a multiplicity of spouting fountains and waterfalls. Examples are the Villa Aldobrandini in Frascati, Villa Garzoni in Collodi, Villa Giovio in Como, and the gardens on the Isola Bella in Lake Maggiore.
Modified versions of Italian Renaissance and baroque gardens appeared throughout Europe. In Spain, Moorish and Renaissance elements were combined in the gardens of the Alcázar in Seville. In France the great châteaus of the Loire valley, such as Chambord and Chenonceaux, were laid out with formal gardens, and with extensive forested parks.
In the 17th century, France replaced Italy as the primary inspiration of architectural and landscape design. The vast building programs of Louis XIV included miles of symmetrically arranged gardens, which, like royal architecture of the period, were designed to give an impression of limitless grandeur. The grounds were regularly intersected by radiating alleys lined with trees or hedges and embellished with fountains, pavilions, and statuary. Versailles and its immense gardens spawned splendid imitations in dozens of kingdoms and principalities throughout Europe.

Romantic Period
In the late 18th century the rise of romanticism, with its emphasis on untamed nature, the picturesque, the past, and the exotic, led to important changes in landscape architecture as well as in other arts. At such great houses as Blenheim Palace and Chatsworth, English architects replaced the symmetrically arranged flower beds and straight walks with sweeping lawns, sloping hills with curving paths, and rivers and ponds punctuated by informally planted groups of trees and shrubbery, to achieve the effect of a wilderness.
The English romantic style spread to the rest of Europe by way of France, where a notable example of the style was created at Ermenonville. It was introduced in North America at Monticello, Jefferson’s Virginia estate. The most important example of this style is Central Park, New York City, designed in 1857.

20th Century
Domestic architecture in the first half of the 20th century attempted to achieve a closer integration of the house with its surroundings. In areas with mild climates, such as California, a garden might be continued within the house. With today’s apartment-style living, many architects seek to incorporate natural elements into their interior designs. Indoor pools and water fountains are enjoying great popularity in shopping malls, offices, and homes. They offer an oasis of cool tranquility in an otherwise hectic world.

Tealight Candle

March 11, 2009

Tealight Candle with stone holder

A tealight, or nightlight, is a candle used in tea or food warmers or (because they last for many hours) as a night light. It is different from a regular candle in that it is encased in a thin metal cover and liquefies completely while lit. Tealights are often used to heat fondue and as food warmers. They are also suitable for accent lighting and for heating scented oil. In tealights the wick is tethered to a piece of metal to stop it from floating to the top of the molten wax and burning before the wax does. Generally, tea lights give off very poor light unless grouped together with many other tea lights; they were designed to be a long-lasting comfort light rather than a working or reading light. Tealights may be distinguished from Nightlights by the duration of burning; a tealight usually burns for 4 to 5 hours but a nightlight, which is larger, is intended to burn for a whole night (about 8 to 10 hours).

Cup styles
As candles have become popular again, tea-light candles have been protected under several patented designs. In some cases, the standard tea light metal cup has been replaced with a clear plastic cup. However, the metal cups are still offered by many candle makers. The clear cup allows more light to escape the holder, and even offers a “stained glass” look when multiple colors are used. In the early 2000s, a new shape of cup was patented to encourage more even burning and complete liquifaction of the wax. The new cup shape slopes inward toward the wick, forcing the wax pool toward the wick. This technology change has worked to increase burn time and in some cases scent throw. These candles are also available in decorative pieces.

Tealights are increasingly implicated as the cause of domestic fires and a common form of misuse is the placing of spent matches or other debris inside the tea-light during use. This can lead to dangerous overheating.

The overheating leads to the wax reaching its “fire point” and igniting. As the wax is consumed the excessive heat is tranferred to the metal of the holder. The base reaches temperatures exceeding 300 Celsius. This is sufficient to melt through plastic and if the tealight has been placed unprotected on a television or other cabinet-style plastic items it will melt the plastic. The hot tealight falls through the hole created and, if the plastic is not fire resistant, the flame ignites the edge of the hole as it passes. This has led to many uncontrolled fires and some deaths.

It is not an issue only of misuse: some tealights are of poor design or quality, some are subject to poor quality control in manufacture.

There is a substantial amount of research on this subject in the UK. The first paper and formal identification of the problem was presented in October 1999 by David Townsend of the London Fire Brigade, United Kingdom. This led to further study in November 2000 by the Consumers Association on behalf of the Department of Trade and Industry

Decorative tealights

Varieties
Tealights can come in many different shapes and sizes, as well as burn times and scents. Some tealights can be used together to create a certain atmosphere.

Holders
Tealights are especially popular for use with candle holders. From small pockets of stone, river stone, cast stone, glass, metal, ceramic and other materials to larger, more elaborate tea light lamps, holders come in a wide range of styles, colors, and shapes. Holders have an appropriately sized cup to use a tealight candle, either scented or unscented. Discount stores, gift stores, and home decor stores often carry an array of holders for these small candles.

707 Game – Backgammon

February 28, 2009

Directions & Instructions
Backgammon directions can be a little confusing to a new player. If you are a serious backgammon player, then you will find that if you are determined and have your mind set on playing the game, then you should have no problem getting the hang of this game. The backgammon directions usually come with any normal backgammon board game.

Setup
Backgammon is set up to play with two players. It is played on a board that has twenty-four triangles, which are called points for each one. The triangles are alternated with color and are grouped into four categories of six triangles in total. These categories are also known as the players home board and outer board. And the opponent’s home and outer board. The home and outer boards are separated with a line down the center of the board, which is considered the bar. This may sound a little confusing at first but it really is not.
The points are number for each of the players starting with the player’s home board. Each player will receive fifteen game pieces of his own color. The normal order of the game pieces is two on each player’s twenty-four point, five on the player’s thirteen point, three on each player’s eight point, and five on each of the player’s six point.

How to Play
The main goal of the game is for the player to move all of his or her game pieces into his own home board and the get them off before your opponent. The player to do this first is considered the winner of the game.
The fair way to determine who plays first in the game is to roll the dice and whoever gets the higher number moves their game pieces according to the numbers that come up. After the first roll, each of the players will alternate throwing the dice and taking turns.
The roll of the dice will indicate how many points the player can move there game piece. The game pieces are always moved in the forward direction to a lower-numbered point.

Rules
A point taken by a single game piece of either color is called a blot. If the opponent game piece lands on a blot, the blot is hit and placed on the bar. If a player has one or more pieces on the bar, his first resort is to enter those pieces into the opponent’s home board. A game piece or checker is entered by moving it to an open space or point that goes in accordance with one of the numbers rolled on the dice.
Once a player has got all of the fifteen pieces into his home board, he may then get or bear off. A player bears off a game piece or checker by rolling a number that corresponds to the point where the piece resides and then taking that piece off the board.
There are many different rules and regulations to this game; however, it is a fun and exciting game to play once you understand all the necessary rules. You can then teach your friends and family how to play and have a great time doing so. Have great fun with backgammon while learning the backgammon directions.

Instructions
Backgammon has been a popular game for many years. It is a game similar to checkers, however your strategy is the complete opposite. Backgammon instructions are easy to follow and anyone can play. When you purchase a backgammon game, there are usually always backgammon instructions that come along to walk you through. If the instructions are misplaced just search the Internet.
The main goal of the game backgammon is for each of the players to get all of his or her game pieces onto the home board and then to find a way to get all the pieces off the board. The first player to achieve this is the winner of the game.
To start the game, figure out who will go first. You can roll the dice for this and whoever gets the bigger number goes first. This is just the easiest way to determine who goes first, without any conflict.
Each player will get a turn to move his or her pieces. The players will first roll the dice before every move. You will move with whatever consists with the roll of the dice. If you roll a 4 and 3, then you will move seven slots. You can break the moves up between two game pieces. In other words, move one four spaces and the other piece three. You just have to make sure you move one game piece in accordance with the number on one of the dice rolled. And the other piece in accordance with the other number rolled. It is really easy to learn.
If the same number would appear on both dice rolled, then the roller would be allowed double what the number is. For example, if you roll a 2-2, then the roller is allowed four moves instead of two. There are instructions in the game to remind of the hard plays and so you can refer back to when you need to.
You get a point by getting two or more of your game pieces on it. Once this occurs, the opponent cannot come to rest on that point when taking the combination of his dice.
There are different terms and circumstances that must be followed during the course of the game. When you are stuck on what to do, you can go back and look in the backgammon instructions to the game to figure it out. If you are playing for the first time and your opponent is a pro, then they can help you along and give you pointers throughout the game. Using the instructions seems to be the proper way to truly learn the game.

706 Games – Zen Garden

February 28, 2009

A Japanese rock garden = “karesansui”, sometimes called a Zen garden, is an enclosed shallow sandpit containing sand, gravel, rocks, and occasionally grass and/or other natural elements. The main elements of karesansui are rocks and sand, with the sea symbolized not by water but by sand raked in patterns that suggest rippling water. Plants are much less important (and sometimes nonexistent) in many karesansui gardens. To maintain such gardens means that the plants, rocks, or other focal points are on occasion moved, turned or removed altogether. The gravel is occasionally raked smooth and re-raked to create new lines if weather or human elements disturb the lines. Rock garden creation and maintenance is considered to be an art form. Karesansui gardens are often, but not always, meant to be viewed from a single, seated position.

In the western world, table top rock gardens are becoming popular for those who can not have a full rock garden outside. They are also popular for work places as it is thought that they can relieve stress.

705 Game – Nine Men Morris

February 28, 2009

Introduction
This game has also been known as : Merlles, Merrills, Merreles, Merrels, Merrelus, Marels, Marelles, Marrills, Muhle, Muller, Morell, Morelles, Molenspel, Mills, Mylla, Mlynek, Mylta and Morris. It is simple board game for two players and is probably one of the oldest games still played today.
Boards have been found in and on many historic buildings throughout the world. Traces occur on objects from the first city of Troy and another from a bronze age burial site in Ireland. The earliest one that can be dated was found on the Gokstad Viking hip burial of B70 AD.
A board of this type has been found cut into the temple Kurna, Egypt in – 1440 BC although this may well have been done some time later. According to Thomas Hyde in 1908, the Chinese also played the game circa 500 BC.
A couple of centuries on, Ovid mentions the game in “Ars Amatoria”. Roman boards were usually made of wood or stone although the rich occasionally had boards made of more exotic materials. Trimalchio had one of turpentine tree and Martial speaks of an ivory board. The game was widely played in England in 1300 AD and visitors to the cathedrals of Norwich, Canterbury, Gloucester, Salisbury and Westminster Abbey can see boards cut into the cloister seats by monks.

Equipment
The board consists of three nested squares connected by a line through ach of the four sides. Pieces are placed at he corners of the squares and the intersections on the sides. Nine pieces are needed for each player, for a total of eighteen pieces.
The key concept of the game is the mill; a straight line of three pieces of the same color along line on the board.

The Game
When a player forms a mill. that player can remove any one of their opponent’s pieces that is not also part of a mill. If all of the opponent’s pieces are in mills, then any piece may be removed.
There are two ways to win Nine Mens Morris; Reduce the number of your opponent’ pieces to two, or block all of your opponent’s pieces so they cannot move.

The Play
The game begins with an empty board. Randomly select a player to go first – possibly toss a coin. Game play proceeds in three phases. If a player forms a mill during any of the phases, that player immediately removes one piece belonging to their opponent. In the opening phase, the players alternate moving one of their pieces into an adjacent, unoccupied space. Pieces must move along a line on the board, and may never jump another piece. The ending phase begins when one player has been reduced to only three pieces. At that point, the player with three pieces may jump a piece to any position on the board.
The game ends when the winner reduces his opponent to two pieces – thus can no longer form mills, or blocks all of his opponents pieces from movement.

704 Game – Chess

Learn How to Play Chess: Rules and Basic Strategies

History of Chess
The origins of chess are not exactly clear, though most believe it evolved from earlier chess-like games played in India almost two thousand years ago. The game of chess we know today has been around since the 15th century where it became popular in Europe.

The Goal of Chess
Chess is a game played between two opponents on opposite sides of a board containing 64 squares of alternating colors. Each player has 16 pieces: 1 king, 1 queen, 2 rooks, 2 bishops, 2 knights, and 8 pawns. The goal of the game is to checkmate the other king. Checkmate happens when the king is in a position to be captured (in check) and cannot escape from capture.

Starting a Game
At the beginning of the game the chessboard is laid out so that each player has the white (or light) color square in the bottom right-hand side. The chess pieces are then arranged the same way each time. The second row (or rank) is filled with pawns. The rooks go in the corners, then the knights next to them, followed by the bishops, and finally the queen, who always goes on her own matching color (white queen on white, black queen on black), and the king on the remaining square.

The player with the white pieces always moves first. Therefore, players generally decide who will get to be white by chance or luck such as flipping a coin or having one player guess the color of the hidden pawn in the other player’s hand. White then makes a move, followed by black, then white again, then black and so on until the end of the game.

How the Chess Pieces Move
Each of the 6 different kinds of pieces moves differently. Pieces cannot move through other pieces (though the knight can jump over other pieces), and can never move onto a square with one of their own pieces. However, they can be moved to take the place of an opponent’s piece which is then captured. Pieces are generally moved into positions where they can capture other pieces (by landing on their square and then replacing them), defend their own pieces in case of capture, or control important squares in the game.

The King
The king is the most important piece, but is one of the weakest. The king can only move one square in any direction – up, down, to the sides, and diagonally. Click on the “>” button in the diagram below to see how the king can move around the board. The king may never move himself into check (where he could be captured).

The Queen
The queen is the most powerful piece. If moved she can move in any one straight direction – forward, backward, sideways, or diagonally – as far as possible as long as she does not move through any or her own pieces. And, like with all pieces, if the queen captures an opponent’s piece her move is over. Click through the diagram below to see how the queens move. Notice how the white queen captures the black queen and then the black king is forced to move.

The Rook
The rook may move as far as it wants, but only forward, backward, and to the sides. The rooks are particularly powerful pieces when they are protecting each other and working together!

The Bishop
The bishop may move as far as it wants, but only diagonally. Each bishop starts on one color (light or dark) and must always stay on that color. Bishops work well together because they cover up each other’s weaknesses.

The Knight
Knights move in a very different way from the other pieces – going two squares in one direction, and then one more move at a 90 degree angle, just like the shape of an “L”. Knights are also the only pieces that can move over other pieces.

The Pawn
Pawns are unusual because they move and capture in different ways: they move forward, but capture diagonally. Pawns can only move forward one square at a time, except for their very first move where they can move forward two squares. Pawns can only capture one square diagonally in front of them. They can never move or capture backwards. If there is another piece directly in front of a pawn he cannot move past or capture that piece.

Pawns have another special ability and that is that if a pawn reaches the other side of the board it can become any other chess piece (called promotion). A pawn may be promoted to any piece. [NOTE: A common misconception is that pawns may only be exchanged for a piece that has been captured. That is NOT true.] A pawn is usually promoted to a queen. Only pawns may be promoted.

En Passant
The last rule about pawns is called “en passant,” which is French basically means “in passing”. If a pawn moves out two squares on its first move, and by doing so lands to the side of an opponent’s pawn (effectively jumping past the other pawn’s ability to capture it), that other pawn has the option of capturing the first pawn as it passes by. This special move must be done immediately after the first pawn has moved past, otherwise the option to capture it is no longer available. Click through the example below to better understand this odd, but important rule.

Castling
One other special rule is called castling. This move allows you to do two important things all in one move: get your king to safety (hopefully), and get your rook out of the corner and into the game. On a player’s turn he may move his king two squares over to one side and then move the rook from that side’s corner to right next to the king on the opposite side. (See the example below.) In order to castle, however, it must meet the following conditions:
* it must be that king’s very first move
* it must be that rook’s very first move
* there cannot be any pieces between the king and rook to move
* the king may not be in check or pass through check
Notice that when you castle one direction the king is closer to the side of the board. That is called kingside. Castling to the other side, through where the queen sat, is called castling queenside. Regardless of which side, the king always moves only two squares when castling.

Check and Checkmate
As stated before, the purpose of the game is to checkmate the opponent’s king. This happens when the king is put into check and cannot get out of check. There are only three ways a king can get out of check: move out of the way (though he cannot castle!), block the check with another piece, or capture the piece threatening the king. If a king cannot escape checkmate then the game is over. Customarily the king is not captured or removed from the board, the game is simply declared over.

Draws
Occasionally chess games do not end with a winner, but with a draw. There are 5 reasons why a chess game may end in a draw:

1. The position reaches a stalemate where it is one player’s turn to move, but his king is NOT in check and yet he does not have another legal move
2. The players may simply agree to a draw and stop playing
3. There are not enough pieces on the board to force a checkmate (example: a king and a bishop vs. a king)
4. A player declares a draw if the same exact position is repeated three times (though not necessarily three times in a row)
5. Fifty consecutive moves have been played where neither player has moved a pawn or captured a piece.

Some Tournament Rules
Many tournaments follow a set of common, similar rules. These rules do not necessarily apply to play at home or online.

Touch-move
If a player touches one of their own pieces they must move that piece as long as it is a legal move. If a player touches an opponent’s piece, they must capture that piece. A player who wishes to touch a piece only to adjust it on the board must first announce the intention, usually by saying “adjust”.

Introduction to Clocks and Timers
Most tournaments use timers to regulate the time spent on each game, not on each move. Each player gets the same amount of time to use for their entire game and can decide how to spend that time. Once a player makes a move they then touch a button or hit a lever to start the opponent’s clock. If a player runs out of time and the opponent calls the time, then the player who ran out of time loses the game (unless the opponent does not have enough pieces to checkmate, in which case it is a draw). Click here to watch two players quickly playing a timed game of chess!

Basic Strategy
There are four simple things that every chess player should know:

#1 Protect your king
Get your king to the corner of the board where he is usually safer. Don’t put off castling. You should usually castle as quickly as possible. Remember, it doesn’t matter how close you are to checkmating your opponent if your own king is checkmated first!

#2 Don’t give pieces away
Don’t carelessly lose your pieces! Each piece is valuable and you can’t win a game without pieces to checkmate. There is an easy system that most players use to keep track of the relative value of each chess piece:
* A pawn is worth 1
* A knight is worth 3
* A bishop is worth 3
* A rook is worth 5
* A queen is worth 9
* The king is infinitely valuable

At the end of the game these points don’t mean anything – it is simply a system you can use to make decisions while playing, helping you know when to capture, exchange, or make other moves.

#3 Control the center
You should try and control the center of the board with your pieces and pawns. If you control the center, you will have more room to move your pieces and will make it harder for your opponent to find good squares for his pieces. In the example below white makes good moves to control the center while black plays bad moves.

#4 Use all of your pieces
In the example above white got all of his pieces in the game! Your pieces don’t do any good when they are sitting back on the first row. Try and develop all of your pieces so that you have more to use when you attack the king. Using one or two pieces to attack will not work against any decent opponent.

Getting Better at Chess
Knowing the rules and basic strategies is only the beginning – there is so much to learn in chess that you can never learn it all in a lifetime! To improve you need to do three things:

#1 – Play
Just keep playing! Play as much as possible. You should learn from each game – those you win and those you lose.

#2 – Study
If you really want to improve quickly then pick up a [recommended chess book]. There are also many resources on Chess.com to help you study and improve.

#3 Have fun
Don’t get discouraged if you don’t win all of your games right away. Everyone loses – even world champions. As long as you continue to have fun and learn from the games you lose then you can enjoy chess forever!

702 Game – Tic Tac Toe

February 27, 2009

History
No one is sure where Tic-Tac-To exactly originated from, but what is known is that it has underwent several changes before becoming the modern version today. Originally known as Three Mens Morris, it’s name varies depending on where you are in the world. In England – Nought and Cross. In Japan – Renju, although not actually created by the Japanese, but rather by the Chinese. This game date back to more than 4.000 years ago. Around 270 BC. Chinese migrants arrived with this game, and the popularity of it soon spread. However, recent studies have brought about another theory, this one originating in ancient Egypt.

It is claimed that diagram for three-in-a-row games were child into the roof slabs of the temple to the egyptian pharaoh Seti I about the year 1300 BC.

‘’Linea’ and ‘Tabula’ have been the known names for this game in France and Italy, respectively; In German it is called Muhle, and besides the term Three Men’s Morris, England also had a secondary term, Mill. Both Mill and Morris have the possibility of the being a lingustic adaption of the word ‘Moor’, which is the name of the Egyptians thought to have introduced this game into Europe during the times of the Middle Ages.
Without a doubt, it scarcely matters where this game has originated, for its a relatively simpler game than most others.

The Play
Select a stone colour and who’s to start first.
A player simply puts a stone on one of the nine squares.
A player may only place a stone on one square per turn, and only in their chosen colour.
Once all the above conditions are met, the turn ends. the turn then passes to the other player, and he will undergo the same process. it is not allowed to pass or skip your turn in this game.

The Objective
The main objective in this game is to have a horizontal, vertical, or diagonal row of 3 stones that belong to you. No enemy stones can be in the way, and the 3 stones MUST be in three different squares. Notice that there are three different ways to get 3 in a row for horizontal and vertical rows, but only 2 for diagonal. Once you meet this goal, you win the game. the other person, obviously, loses.
In the event that all the squares have been filled up and no person has gotten three of their symbols in a row, the game is a draw, often referred to as a ‘cats game’.
