Hardwood flooring is classic and timeless

Posted on

Wooden paneling are popular in houses designed in the 1980’s. Our ancestral house is made of wood, except for the footing, columns . beams and roof, the rest are made of hardwood. My childhood homes living room had one wall paneled with this artificial wood, so was my basement. My mom decided to remove that one wall of the living room and replaced it with a concrete wall since the wood can no longer hold frames and other hanging decorations. Most wall of our bedroom were replaced too to avoid pest and other insects thriving in the middle of the wood panels. Now days, no one with a sense of design would add wood to their walls. They are just used now to floors and cupboards. Good-looking hardwood flooring are memorable. I am one of the biggest fans of hardwood floors since what we have at our ancestral home is easy to polish and maintain.

Hardwood floors are timeless, classic and are always in style. Styles of floors have made progress from the 1950’s. My home growing up had this type of flooring installed when the house was built. It was as authentic as it comes. Our family dream house of course should have hardwood floors in some portion of the house.



SEER Tools for your Project Management needs

Posted on

Construction projects are huge and complicated work. I know it because I have been in the industry for the past 20 years. The task is daunting especially if you are the project manager. Every employee produce works to further the project and that creates a ton of files to sort through. Each contractor, consultant and engineers and everyone involved in the project communicates with one another to ensure the direction of the collaboration is mutual. These communication can happen at meetings, over the phone, radio or via email. At the end, it is difficult to keep track of all this communication. Some of the information becomes obsolete as time flew . I remember when I was still a fresh graduate with my Civil Engineering , everything was manual then. I started as an apprentice to the biggest construction company in our region and was assign in monitoring materials and equipment usage, I was faced daily with bulk of paper works. Encoding of data were all manually encoded. It takes time to print and re-check the data.

Now with the onset of modern technology managing a project is made easier through computer program software. The wealth of information flows out of on every project are monitored, recorded and evaluate easier. Have you heard of SEER Product Tools? It is a project management tool which would allow you to describe a project in a few simple steps, and based on sound science and applicable project histories. The tool would be of great help as it provides you with the most likely estimate for project cost, effort, and duration. It can analyze and test trade-offs in a matter of seconds by changing one or more project variables. Why SEER? Because it can determine specific percentage probabilities for achieving project objectives, and further, how those probabilities could be improved by small changes in various underlying constraints and assumptions. It can let you create privacy controls.

For more information about the tool, you can look at the diagram below, A flow chart at how SEER tools work.

Its truly a close race!!! Romney Vs. Obama !

Posted on

Barack Obama is way behind by  29 points since as of this posting 10:25am here in  the Philippines, Romney got 152  while Obama at 123.

I was amused today since a blogger friend asked me whom I voted for the election. She thought I am living in the USA. It’s maybe because I kept posting on my Facebook Status the election results. If only  I am a US Citizen, I would surely campaign for my bet. Being a politician runs in my blood. My father has been a Barangay Chairman and  a Vice-Mayor . Me? I have been an Sangguniang Kabataan Chairman . I transferred residence when I got married, so I was not able to  run as Chairman in our plance.

Anyway, back to the USA Election Fiasco, I hope my bet will win. What do you think?
