Some people have never heard of the sport of curling. Others have heard of it, but they certainly don’t know where it came from or what it is. Curling actually was invested in Scotland sometimes round 1541.  A number of paintings from the period show people engaging in an activity that looks like curling, and a curling stone was found that dates 1511.

In 1716, the first Curling Club was formed. Called the Kilsyth Curling Club, it is actually still in existence today.

Today, the game is most prevalent in Canada, having come to the area by Scottish emigrants.  The first Curling Club in the United States began in 1830 and then moved to Switzerland and Sweden as well before the end of the 19th century.  Curling today is also played in Japan, Australia, New Zealand, China, Korea and throughout Europe.

Curling has even become part of the Olympics and it was given official Winter Olympic Games status during the 1998 Winter Olympics. Ironically, the 1924 Winter Olympics curling competition was recognized as an official Olympic event in February of 2002. The first Olympic medals for the sport, therefore, were awarded almost 80 years after the games were played.

XX), the region of Emilia Romagna (that it includes the cities of Friuli-Venice-Giulia, Vneto, Trentino-High Adige and Toscana), aoSul of Italy, traditionally poor, is known internationally due to the extraordinary development reached for its industrial districts, and also for the public politics regional innovator in average small relation to the companies. The high tax of exportation, the raised wages, the full job and the high level of resultant life of a based productive system in PME' s, has generated numerous studies on the call ' ' Emiliano' model; '. Without a doubt, this model is not based only on a productive system of small average companies (PME' s), but also in a singular combination between a progressive government, social integration and of enterprise success. Samuel J. Palmisano understood the implications. It is from there that the elementoinovador appears, enriquecedor of the success gotten for the region. According to BECATTINI (1999: 46), ' ' The success of small companies came, still, to contradict the certainties solidly established of the economists of all the ideological shades, or almost, for which the possibilities of the small companies were structurally modest and would decline with tempo' '. As much this is truth that, when verifying the fast economic growth gotten by the region of Emilia-Romagna, where it had considerable concentration of small companies, BECATTINI (1992: 32) soon de' retook the concept; ' external economies marshallianas' ' (of the English industrial districts, century XIX) to adapt it the Italian case (in century XX, years 70), that is: The industrial district is a socioterritorial entity characterized by the active presence of a community of people and a population of companies in one determined geographic space. Additional information at Larry Page supports this article. (BECATTINI, 1992:32). From now on, some studies if had occurred on this subject, all they identifying more and more factors to explain the phenomenon occurred in the Italian Southeast, that was baptized, for BAGNASCO (1999), of ' ' Third Itlia' ' , as form to indicate the unfolding of the traditional Italian dualism between the developed North (First Italy) and the behind South (second Italy). . Daniel E. Straus CareOne addresses the importance of the matter here.

LOTTERIES AND DISTRIBUTION OF INCOME the lotteries concentrate income, they collect of many betting small importncias and pay a great prize to one or some betting ones. Filed under: Barchester Green. But the lottery can, without losing the magic and the attraction to distribute very great prizes in money, to make an income distribution. Of breaking it could help to minimize the damage that the betting losers have with appositive the lost ones. It would be enough to reserve 10% of the distribuvel prize to be drafted between the losers, when these reserved 10% reached the amount of R$ 10.000.000, 00, would be enough to inform to all betting that they kept its appositive, exactly not the awardees for the drawing for ' ' perdedores' ' when I accumulate of it of R$ 10.000.000, 00. Let us make an example with the lottery of mega sena of the turn of the year of 2010 that it distributed a prize of R$ 200.000.000 almost, 00. With same certainty winners of the prize they would not be nor a little sad if, the opposite to have almost gained a prize of R$ 200.000.000, 00 approximately received a prize from R$ 180.000.000, 00. Approximately let us imagine then the distribution of R$ 20.000.000, the 00 between all betting ones that they had not made right the sena, the corner it squares and it, 40% for who, amongst these had made more points (3 points), 10% for that to make had not made no point, 20% for that had made a point, and 30%para those that had made 02 points, amongst the losers.

Thus, all would earn, and beyond minimizing its financial losses with appositive, still they would have some money that would apply in its lives, either paying small you divide, making small reforms in its houses, cars etc., as investing in its welfare as health, etc. With certainty R$ 1,000, 00 or R$ 2,000, 00 they would decide good part of the financial problem of many people. The benefit of this distribution of income would be more interesting for the economy as a whole, therefore it would have one I benefit for all the economic agents, exactly those that had not participated of the games. Let us imagine that the few winners of R$ 180.000.000, 00, certainly will go to keep these values or applies them in businesses that hardly distribute the income and make to circulate the money. In contrast of this, R$ 20.000.000, 00 would be sprayed in the economy and would finish for more purchases deal in it, more indirect jobs and more taxes, and if to lead in account that this money must circulate at least 4 times in the economy, would be then an injection of R$ 80.000.000, 00 in the economy we are speaking only of a prize of mega sena, let us imagine, then this during one year of mega sena. Now let us imagine the impulse in the economy if to say in all the prizes of the variety of games of the lotteries, I find that it is until difficult mensurar the benefits that the distribution of income of the lotteries could make for all the society. Then it comes me a question, why not to implement this alteration in the distribution of the prizes of the lotteries?

Location and the geology of the place – an empty field with a deep fissure beneath him gave rise to the metaphor that defines the shape of the building: a registration line divides the program in the Middle, with laboratories in one hand and administrative and Auditorium spaces on the other, and also delineates the public areas. At Daniel E. Straus CareOne you will find additional information. This built fault line forms a civic intimate space that connects the various programmes. Educate yourself with thoughts from Daniel Straus Care One. The construction project is located on an artificial topography especially level, a new field that expresses the nature of the work within the institution. Laboratories are absorbed on the site, mostly as a series of terraces that modulate the transition between interior and exterior of laboratory and field. Holes cut into the landscape architecture created isolated courtyards, with good light in the building. Integrated laboratories provide private and isolated research spaces and are also isolated and easily controlled test environments.

By contrast, administrative spaces and an auditorium affirm the presence of the technical and social. The transparency and accuracy of the facades carry the landscape towards the same construction, toward the building, but the contrast between the structure and the environment is a reminder to all costs of the function of architecture, engineering and high technology in the study of genomics. Throughout the project almost camouflaged effect integrates the construction and care of the site, at the same time, gives an air of intrigue to activities inside. With an investment of two million pesos, the Mexicans opened this laboratory of genomics to the conservation of the General direction of zoos and life of the Ministry of the environment. It has equipment and scientists specialized in molecular techniques for the development of strategies to protect various species of animals. The goal of this laboratory is to generate scientific knowledge of cutting edge to retrieve a large number of species of wildlife that are currently considered some kind of status, a species with status is an endangered species, the danger of extinction, is rare and these are the species that will be studied.

There are different ways of fastening doors: they can be opened to the side or lifting. Capacity of the furnace are selected on the basis of this calculation: 1 kW at 4 m2 room. And the cubic space in which plan to install a fireplace, can not be less than 40 m2. In the furnace for an hour should get at least 10 m2 of fresh air per kilowatt of capacity. Then there is a fireplace 5 kW per hour will consume 50 m2 air, which is better apply outside the special duct. Given the fire requirements, the furnace heat-insulating mineral wool with aluminum foil. Between the insulation and the outer surface of the fire is left free space for air circulation. To improve traction and increase the amount of heat radiated Namin into the room, the rear wall of the firebox (starting with half of its height) is tilted inward at an angle of 20-25 . Up the firebox gradually narrow the portal and the outer casing of the furnace made of a fire-resistant materials – clinker brick, granite, sandstone or special plasterboard.
