Top 10 amazing homes that are extremely protected! Subscribe to TheHub http://goo.gl/87YJzG For copyright matters please contact us at: email@example.com Remembering to shut the windows and lock the front door is most likely the only security you have in your home, but, unless you’re hoarding a secret million dollar’s worth of artwork behind closed doors, it’s probably all you need. You might hide your iPad under your pillow when you leave, or stash your pocket money under a mattress, but let’s be honest here, the majority of houses aren’t really that well protected. But, we’re here today to show you some of the most highly protected homes in the world. Whether they’ve been made extra secure to look after the people inside, or whether it’s just because the owners have a lot of money, these houses put our double locks to shame.
Andrew George, Professor of Babylonian, School of Oriental and African Studies (SOAS), University of London The Epic of Gilgamesh is a 4,000-year-old Mesopotamian poem about a hero who embarks on an arduous quest to find the secret of immortality. Preserved on clay tablets in cuneiform script, it is generally considered to be the earliest great work of literature to survive from the ancient world. In this illustrated lecture, Andrew George, author of a prize-winning translation of the Epic of Gilgamesh, explores four themes related to this Babylonian masterpiece: the archaeology of the poem’s recovery, the reconstruction of its text, the story it tells, and its messages about life and death. Presented in collaboration with the Departments of Near Eastern Languages & Civilizations and Comparative Literature, with the support of the Provostial Fund for the Arts and Humanities, Harvard University

This talk was given at a local TEDx event, produced independently of the TED Conferences. In this fun and personal talk, Caroline shares a story of moving from stage-paralysis to expressive self. Accompanied by an unusual prop, she encourages us to use our voice as an instrument and really find the confidence within. Caroline Goyder is an author and voice coach, with a lifelong curiosity in the question of how we find the courage to think for ourselves: aloud. Caroline trained as an actor, and then as a voice coach at Central School of Speech and Drama (CSSD), where she worked for ten years. She now runs a business that helps people find confidence and calm in the theatre of life.

At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)
Building Rehabilitation for Private & Public Use
The Methods of Planning and Building for Economic and Energy Saving Projects Working with Rediscovered Craftsmanship Outside Modern Building Standards of Fake Building Physics
Konrad Fischer, Architect BYAK - Shanghai (China), Tongji University 2015-4-2

An all too long lasting period of splendid restoration endangers our cultural heritage. Mostly reinvented heroic examples of our antique magnificence follow a more or less nationalistic ideology. Destructive expert work is followed by extremely expensive projects.
The general renovation has primarily become a financial problem. Secondly the brutal adaption to modern building standards is following a phony building physics created by semi-scientific institutions which are dependent of the building industry.
An economic rehab work & home improvement needs stringent preliminary inspection, precise planning on base of experimental research & experienced knowledge.
Insights into the useful methods of planning - some detailed examples from various profane & clerical building types.
And: What's wrong with usual methods to combat the moisture of the 'rising damp', to cover old facades by modern coatings & to save energy by fluffy insulation, the National Building Regulations & the Industrial Standards? Get surprised by astonishing answers!
The Main Topics
How to manage cost-reduced restauration of ruined building structures, a structural protecting repair, the preservation & conservation of listed buildings, the rehabilitation of real estate. Refurbishment, maintenance, renovation & upgrading modernization of the infrastructure despite salty efflorescence and contamination, woodworm & dry rot, with maximized re-use of the exterior & interior construction & fabric. Protective safeguarding & technical, functional & aestethical update of the historic house, church, monastery, castle, noble manor house, palace & fortress, town hall, rural farmhouse, industrial building, urban residential & apartment houses, the heritage sites onto national heritage buildings & world heritage sites.
The How To's, Hints, Tips, Tricks & Cheats from the financiation & building survey & inventory to the initial planning onto the final account by true eco green design for aged construction.
Modern vs. traditional building technique?
The energy saving window - single, double triple glassed, blinds, wood, steel or plastic, recycling or renewal? Optimized energy efficiency in heating systems, convectional & radiation techniques.
Crumbling, cracking, decay & aging of wooden construction, natural stone, brick, roof tiles & mortars, leaking roof and gutters, lime render & wash & synthetical resin fixings & coatings - problems & solutions.
How to get the economic, thrifty & cost-saving building remodeling & facelifting to contemporary touch in the budget following or despite the conservators of the heritage conservation body (governmental office).
The scam of the thermal insulation by Exterior Insulation Finishing System EIFS / External Thermal Insulation Composite System ETICS, mineral wool, inflammable polystyrene, expanded foam & PUR.
Moisture barriere, damp proof course & rising dampness in wet walls, black mold, dry rot, rotten wood & other building damage. Concrete, cement & non-hydraulic pure hydratic lime mortar - the secrets.
HVAC - Heating, Ventilation, Air-conditioning, Do-It-Yourself-Projects DIY.
Bribery & fraud in the building branche, scientific research institute, media & government.
The problems of the craftsman, architect, civil engineer & builder & owner with the building inventory, the offering process & the work description.
Investments in renewable energy with solar energy panels, wind energy plants, climate change deniers, man made (anthropogenic) global warming sceptics & the IPPC hoax.
The result of the author's 450 executed building rehabilitation projects since 1979 in a two hour lecture only.
