Recycling – an Ecological deed

Eco-deed

Continuing on my writing about the recent (15th March) youths’ demonstration – not having done their homework before marching against the government(s) – I thought I dig a bit deeper into Recycling. About what can be done against climate change.

At least give a peek into my personal findings of the state of the world.

Energy conservation – Low hanging fruit

Energy conservation – Low hanging fruit

We as human beings do things out of old behavior – habits – sometimes without reflecting over the logic of our behavior. I will present situations around energy saving behavior, which I have philosophized a lot about.

Are you familiar with the term “Low hanging fruit”? It means things that are easily reached, things that are available at closest reach.

I believe habits are formed because of the road of least resistance. In certain ways, things are simply easier. Therefore, there is a resistance to change a habit, a behavior.

And, if to change, there must be an certain experience of pain.

My first Vallila

Tiira – Vallila Interior

My first textile project using a Vallila Interior product came by chance.

I was new in a local business group of a global network, and in our local group we had arranged a lottery between our guests. From my side the prize was a noise-dampening acoustic wall element, with the textile being the free choice of the receiver.

The receiver chose the textile theme called ‘Tiira’. The name of the black-stripe-headed seagull, in Finnish.

White Duplo bricks

Did you know?

Wanted to celebrate Finland 100 years independence.

Couldn’t find on the net any – any! – photo of a Finnish flag made from Duplo blocks. Scanned the Lego and Duplo forums. Nothing. Went to the most known shop in Helsinki, in hope of finding a building area with loose blocks for spontaneous building. Strike-out.

The helpful lady guided me to call their other store, since they maintain a spontaneous building corner in that specific shop. Answers a young man – Yes they have a corner, but very few white bricks…

Restorative acoustic conditioning

Acoustical conditioning as a restorative factor

(A speech given to the local Toastmasters club members)

I open with a strong one-time clap of hands.

Did anyone hear an echo? No? Well, it was a very quick-responding one. Not a long-ringing echo, such as one can hear in a large room.
