After a two-year hiatus, the Fête des Arbres gala dinner returned to Vacaville on Monday.

It might have been in a new location, but all the elements were there: trees decorated and sponsored by local businesses and agencies, live and silent auctions, a gourmet dinner and, of course, the chance to collect. funds for a local homeless shelter. Housing.

The gala dinner has long been the flagship event of the Festival of Trees for much of the tradition’s 31-year history. However, like so many events in 2020, the dinner had to be canceled last year as the festival took on a virtual format due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The gala returned this year, but not to Vacaville Ice Sports where it was previously held, but rather in the Grand Ballroom at the Sunrise Banquet Hall & Event Center.

Colleen Berumen, executive director of Opportunity House, said the largest cleared space for the biggest gala crowd the Festival of Trees has ever had. It also made the event really feel like a gala, which the rink didn’t.

“It felt colder and we were limited,” she said. “We were at the maximum. Here it allows us to grow, and in fact, in the years to come post-COVID, we may have even more people here. “

The new venue served as the backdrop for what appeared to be a very chic party, with a red carpet at the entrance, participants in costumes and dresses, and the predominance of champagne glasses filled with different drinks. One of the most popular was the Ooh La La Lemon Drop created by Jeet Singh of Clay Oven Bar & Grill, which won the Cocktails for a Cause competition from Opportunity House and thus secured a spot as a signature cocktail. served at the Festival of Trees.

The crowd included some of the most prominent local government officials including MP Jim Frazier, Solano County Assessor-Recorder Marc Tonnesen, Mayor Ron Rowlett, Deputy Mayor Nolan Sullivan, City Manager Aaron Busch, City Attorney Melinda Stewart and Council Members Greg Ritchie, Mike Silva and Roy Stockton.

Berumen said she was very excited about the participation.

“People are happy to come back and do things, especially for the holidays,” she said.

Over the past few years, all of the bidding Christmas trees have been on display in the same venue as the gala. This year, the vast majority of trees are currently on display in Vacaville business windows through Friday, and can be offered for sale through the Festival of Trees website, but six trees were on display at the gala.

Kaiser Permanente Vacaville donated a white tree surrounded by items you might find in a rustic home, Kay Bonifacio from Frank’s Septic Services donated a flocked tree with large red ornaments, California Highway Patrol donated a tree with blue and white ornaments and lots of toys underneath, and Travis Credit Union contributed a “12 Holidates” tree with sachets hanging from the branches each containing a different prize, like a Napa wine tasting, from skydiving at iFLY in Sacramento, an ax throwing at Victory or Valhalla in Dixon or just a romantic dinner at Pietro’s.

A tree paid tribute to auctioneer Joe Gates, and a quilt paid tribute to the life of Nancy Walton, co-founder of the Festival of Trees.

The companies also provided some of the bidding desserts, including a donut tower from Stems Florist, a cheesecake from Tahoe Joe’s and a cookie tower from Opportunity House.

One of the contributions that generated a lot of activity was a rotating photo booth donated by Budget Blinds. Seated in a corner of the ballroom, the participants stepped on a platform on which a smartphone was mounted on a pole. The pole would rotate and capture panoramic images of the subjects in the center, and the subjects would have the option of sending the photos to their own phones.

The festivities continued with a dinner provided by Chef to Go Catering consisting of tri-tip, grilled chicken, roasted potatoes, a mix of carrots and green beans, salad and butter rolls.

Berumen highlighted the theme of the evening, “We Can Only Imagine,” which she said encapsulates the work of Opportunity House and its parent organization, Vacaville Social Services Organization.

“Over the past four years, we have used our imaginations, hearts and collaborations to work to make an impact on our homeless or homeless community,” she said.

Some of the achievements of Opportunity House over the past year cited by Berumen include the start of accepting single fathers as residents, setting up a program for young people and adolescents to share their problems with others. adult mentors, operating a heated hideaway at the Georgie Duke Sports Center in the winter. months and organizing fundraisers such as cocktails for a cause, cookies for a cause and a celebrity golf tournament.

“It takes a lot more than imagination to accomplish what we have done,” said Berumen. “We created a program at Opportunity House that gives a helping hand to individuals and families, not a handout. “

The only thing Berumen failed to imagine is the support of the community, as Opportunity House has received a lot.

“At all times, we are supported by you, whether you are a monthly donor, a food donor, a volunteer, a fundraiser, a second hand or a donor, a coat driver… you are making a huge difference. She said.

Berumen then introduced Brandon Sanborn as this year’s Speaker of Hope, a resident of Opportunity House who overcame initial hardships after being enrolled at the shelter and being successful. Sanborn was only the second single dad in the program, and he spoke about his experiences being on probation and raising his two children while homeless.

“Being homeless is more than having a place to stay,” he said. “It’s being in a situation that affects physical and mental stability. It’s a full time job figuring out where you’ll feel safe long enough to figure out what to do next.

Sanborn first became homeless in December 2018, and he said it took him less than a month before exhausting all of his options to provide for his children. He spent his first Christmas that year in a hotel and on New Years with his sister. His probation officer recommended that he stay at Opportunity House.

“I had never heard of this place before, but I was ready to give it a shot, even if it was only for a week,” he said. “A week without having to worry about myself and my children.”

Sanborn spent his last 20 dollars on Little Caesars pizza and gasoline to get from Vallejo to Opportunity House for his face-to-face meeting. While in the lobby, his son said he was hungry and the family were offered a lunch bag.

“It was the first moment in what seemed like an eternity that I could step back and breathe,” he said.

Sanborn did very well at Opportunity House, where he used his cooking experience to help prepare food in the kitchen, earned his GED, went through a positive parenting program, and got a full-time construction job. .

“Today, I believe the past does not define me,” he said. “I believe that nothing is too small or too difficult to achieve, I believe that I can make a difference and most importantly, I believe in myself.”

Sanborn expressed his gratitude for Opportunity House.

“The Opportunity House helps kick-start a momentum for success that I still have today,” he said.

The remaining bidding trees will be on display in company windows until Friday. One way to see them is to take part in the Winter WonderWalk in downtown Vacaville, from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. on Thursday. For more information, visit Downtownvacaville.com/events/winter-wonderwalk/.

Ethernet Connection Innovations – Aerospace Manufacturing and Design https://embroidery2u.com/ethernet-connection-innovations-aerospace-manufacturing-and-design/ Tue, 30 Nov 2021 11:06:28 +0000 https://embroidery2u.com/ethernet-connection-innovations-aerospace-manufacturing-and-design/

Harting takes into account current trends and developments shaping industrial transformation and presents infrastructure solutions for easy access to IIoT. Connector innovations such as RJ Industrial MultiFeature, preLink RJ45 as well as the industrial interface T1 for single-pair Ethernet according to IEC 63171-6 in M12 and M8 housings play a special role.

Ethernet is deployed in more and more areas of automation and is the connecting element for IT and OT (Operational Technology). Harting develops and refines its range of industrial Ethernet connectivity to implement networks for industrial use. With fast Ethernet and gigabit Ethernet, the Technology Group is highlighting new variants of the RJ Industrial Multifeature interface: the industrial RJ45 with “integrated side cutter” for accelerated and simplified cable connection, as well as the new RJ45 preLink with optimized design. Both RJ45 innovations are available in straight and angled versions.

To meet demanding Ethernet applications at the field level, where the assembly can be subjected to massive time pressure, Harting introduces circular M12 connectors conforming to the new standard IEC 61076-2-010. This is the PushPull locking standard in the market for M12 connectors. allowing access to both standing and recessed device sockets, while interfaces can also be connected 75% faster in the field and overcoming the problem of second source and interoperability.

Compared to RJ45 solutions, the miniaturized ix industrial connector features the 70% smaller interface specified in the PROFINET directive Wiring and interconnection technology and provides users with a more compact, robust and industry-compatible interface for demanding applications in the PROFINET environment.

The variants of the industrial interface T1 for single-pair Ethernet also play a special role, in particular the standardized interface according to standard IEC 63171-6 in M12 and M8 housings. The Technology Group will present the new hybrid concepts for SPE plus Power according to IEC 63171-7. The -7 standard for hybrid SPE solutions represents an important step in meeting power requirements beyond the possible 50 W of Power over Data Line.

Trying to make SPE technology accessible to other areas of industrial applications, the Technology Group made available the first single-pair connection solutions via a PCB terminal. The terminals further simplify the connection of SPEs, bring Ethernet to the field level, and simplify handling. This is particularly interesting in the context of SPE and IIoT with low data rates from 10 Mbit / s and transmission lengths of up to 1000 m in industry, construction and process automation.

Sex shops give evangelicals in Brazil a taste of paradise https://embroidery2u.com/sex-shops-give-evangelicals-in-brazil-a-taste-of-paradise/ Tue, 30 Nov 2021 02:25:50 +0000 https://embroidery2u.com/sex-shops-give-evangelicals-in-brazil-a-taste-of-paradise/

Sometimes she disguises her merchandise as medicine. Others like bakery delivery. Whatever the packaging, Andrea dos Anjos knows that discretion is key when emerging evangelical sex shops in Brazil send erotic products to their customers.

Dos Anjos opened her online store, Memorias da Clo, in 2019, providing evangelical women with a safe space to ask questions and seek advice about products designed for a part of life that remains taboo for many conservative Christians in the world. Brazil.

The 43-year-old Baptist is based in Rio de Janeiro, but advises clients primarily through a private messaging app, like her pioneering colleague Carolina Marques, who has opened her own evangelical sex shop – or “love store,” as she prefers. call it – a year ago.

Marques’s company, ConSensual, offers an online catalog of “relationship auxiliaries,” such as sex toys and flavored lubricants – all tactfully presented, avoiding the wilder side of the sex toy business.

The idea, she says, is that customers “won’t have to rush to shut down their laptops” if someone walks into the room while they’re browsing her website.

Marques, 26, a member of the Assembly of God church, consulted with his pastor and wife before opening his business.

They are the ones who advised against calling it a “sex shop”.

“It scares people,” she remembers saying. “‘This is vulgar. This is not who we are.'”

“They always remind me to be careful with the packaging,” says Marques, who wants to become a sex therapist.

Discretion is paramount for evangelicals, who make up about 30 percent of Brazil’s 213 million people, a percentage that has skyrocketed in recent years.

“I’m not going to show up and hand out flyers after church,” says Marques at her home in Sao Goncalo, a suburb of Rio.

“We Christians always have this taboo around sensuality. But in a marriage, with your spouse, it can be natural. I want to get rid of the stigma that says sex should only be for procreation. . “

The Brands product line includes a vibrating egg-shaped gadget to help get partners in the mood, lubricants with flavors such as cotton candy or “candy apple” and aphrodisiac scents.

Dildos, anal sex toys, and masturbation materials are strictly prohibited.

“I don’t want (customers) to feel like they’re doing something wrong,” she says.

Marques doesn't sell dildos, anal sex toys, or masturbation equipment because they don't want customers "feel like they are doing something wrong Marques does not sell dildos, anal sex toys or masturbation equipment because it does not want customers to “feel like they are doing something wrong” Photo credit: AFP / DANIEL RAMALHO

Dos Anjos says she turned to the Bible to seek to answer the question, “What is sin? in relation to sexuality.

The answer, she decided: each couple should set their own limits.

She got the idea for her business after leaving her husband, who sexually assaulted her.

After their divorce, she went to a sex shop.

“It was a time in my life when I didn’t know what fun was. But the clerk there was a man. How could I have discussed this subject with him? she says.

“I realized that many evangelical women must feel the same way.”

She says a large part of her job is giving advice to women on issues such as lubrication issues and postpartum sex.

She also accompanies couples. She remembers a couple, both virgins, whom she counseled for days before having sex for the first time.

“In this case, the sale didn’t come until later,” she says.

Jessica, 24, is a regular customer of ConSensual.

“I mainly use massage gels, thermal lubricants, flavored … They make the relationship more pleasant and fun,” she told AFP.

She requested that her last name not be used, speaking through a WhatsApp message to protect her identity.

Jessica says she convinced some of her friends to try erotic products. Others, she says, dismiss the idea as being too “aggressive.”

Marques, who says she has started receiving orders from other parts of Brazil, has a phrase she uses to allay such fears.

“Our body is the temple of the Lord and we must take care of it,” she said.

Trend detection

Well-being, technology and the connection with nature have been dominant themes in kitchen and bathroom design this year and are expected to gain momentum in 2022.

Jamie Gold | November 29, 2021

What a long and strange year it has been! Let’s take a look back at the dominant trends of 2021 and anticipate what 2022 will likely bring.

While it’s difficult to predict with any clarity, given some major unknowns, here are some hot spots from across the industry and the country from unique perspectives:

  • Tatiana Machado-Rosas, designer based in San Diego, head of the design department at Jackson Design and Remodeling;
  • Susan Serra, kitchen and bathroom designer based in Long Island, New York;
  • Josh Christian, CEO of the Home Technology Association;
  • Bob Gifford, Director of Business Development for luxury retailer Hastings Tile & Bath in New York;
  • Susan Chung, vice president of research with the American Society of Interior Designers;
  • Emily Clark, Boise, Idaho-based custom home builder of Clark & ​​Co. Homes.

Well-being trends are accelerating

Designers have focused on wellness for decades with the interest of some customers, but the pandemic has really brought out its importance. Literally! “For 2021, the continued attention to health and hygiene has helped revitalize the kitchen,” observes Chung. She also sees its importance elsewhere, noting that “the bathroom has really become a place to escape the stress and fear of the outside world.” Well-being has also appeared in outdoor spaces, working from home, and mindfulness. “As the home became a hub for all types of colliding activities, homeowners sought to design it as a way to reduce stress and promote tranquility,” concludes the ASID executive.

Beyond the spaces mentioned above, well-being manifested itself in related rooms. “The transition from what was called the ‘mud room’ to what is now called the ‘laundry room’ or pre-wash area; so many people wanted a place to drop off their groceries and sanitize items before they got home, ”Gifford shares. This is linked to a growing interest in hands-free functionality, he explains: “Soap dispensers, faucets, hand towels – anything that gives people a sense of comfort and control over their surroundings. “

Kitchen Design Trends

“Multipurpose kitchens with open floor plans have continued to be a strong trend as customers seek to make their kitchen the vibrant heart of their home,” says Machado-Rosas. “The integration of smart technology, especially with more people using the kitchen space to work from home or attend virtual classrooms, has become even more essential. In addition, customers have shown a renewed interest in the hygiene of their spaces, which has led to a desire for easy-to-maintain materials for countertops and flooring, ”she adds. Conversely, the design director sees a resurgence of natural stone for sinks and countertops, attributing it to a desire for calm stemming from a connection to nature.

Across the country, Serra sees three dominant trends: “Well-being on steroids, convenience of cooking and visual comfort. Health and cleanliness were the main concerns of the customers. This included “performance materials in the surfaces, as well as devices [and fixtures] that promote healthy lifestyles and preserve our health, such as renewed attention to adequate ventilation, improved touchless faucets, and larger sinks that have become common – often with two faucets’ as a few examples.

Changes in shopping and dining habits are also influencing kitchen design, says the New York designer. “A new type of hybrid cuisine has appeared; time (but not too much) is taken to create healthy, homemade meals from fresh, quality foods, assisted by smart and efficient devices. Buying a freezer for bulk food storage, better cabinet storage solutions, and designing more counter space creates a near-utopia for one or more cooks.

Visual comfort is also a trend, Serra observed. “While the kitchen has taken on more lifestyle functions over the past 18 months, homeowners are much more open to creative design solutions,” she shares. This means larger windows, blends of nature-inspired textures and finishes, and cozy dining rooms with flexible designs or banquettes. “The transition of kitchen aesthetics to integrate more seamlessly with surrounding rooms decreases the perception of the kitchen as a workspace and brings it closer to a living space”, suggests. she.

Clark has also seen kitchens evolve, she comments, citing an “expansion of the back kitchen or pantry, work areas as opposed to a work triangle and multiple mini kitchens for a living. multigenerational “. Antimicrobial counters, touchless faucets and chef sinks also promote healthy living and cooking, the homebuilder notes. Natural finishes, warm woods, and creative design solutions with saturated cabinet colors are also popping up in her northwest region.

Bathroom design trends

“The emphasis in the design of the bathroom has been to create a highly personalized space that communicates joy and tranquility,” observes Machado-Rosas. “Guests are looking for a personal retreat with a spa atmosphere where they can truly relax.” These include steam showers, heated floors, trendy – sometimes personalized – tubs, and premium features to meet personalized customer needs and wants. Natural materials also appear in these luxurious bathrooms, notes the San Diego designer. “Balancing porcelain or glass tiles with wood and natural stones and amplifying natural light has been popular,” she adds.

Clark also sees the trend for personalized luxury in his Idaho homes. These include “sculptural tubs, steam showers with light, sound and aromatherapy, tiles with hand-cut looks and subtle tone differences, fluted or fluted textures, oversized rugs and sheer curtains.” .

“Throughout 2021, we worked with designers who wanted (and still want) the flexibility to customize their projects using different colors and finishes for their vanities,” recalls Hastings’ Gifford. “For bathtubs, solid surface materials remain popular because they have a soft texture and are easy to clean and maintain. The New York-based retailer has also seen strong interest in hands-free faucets with white finishes and versatile wall-mounted vanities.

Technological trends

Technology has continued to evolve in kitchen and bathroom projects, and it shows no signs of slowing down. Smart features are increasingly present in kitchens and bathrooms, notes Christian, CEO of the Home Technology Association. “We’re seeing entertainment products installed in kitchens like waterproof TVs built into the counter backsplash, charging stations, shelves for cooking tutorials or recipe browsing, built-in overhead speakers or a simple wireless speaker on the counter. He also sees sleek built-in sockets, lighting keypads and recessed concealment systems so the electronics in the room are present but hidden.

“With bathrooms, we see a lot of circadian rhythm lighting being installed so that the time spent in the bath is consistent with an owner’s sleep cycles,” he says. Other bathroom technology trends cited by designers include smart toilets, upgraded shower systems, integrated sound and lighting systems, and smart blinds.

Machado-Rosas sums it up this way: “We have seen a significant increase in the number of customers requesting smart technology that is fully integrated into their homes. Due to the combination of improved accessibility and ease of use, we expect to see this trend grow exponentially in the years to come. ”

Predictions for 2022

ASID’s Chung predicts that flexible spaces, universal design, locally sourced products due to the supply line and sustainability issues will trend in 2022. She also believes the pandemic has increased the perceived value of designers by helping their clients meet the challenges brought on by the pandemic.

Christian from HTA foresees a strong push towards wellness technology, indoor and outdoor home theater spaces and death (at least in the short term) in “just in time” delivery systems. He also sees designers working earlier in the process with tech professionals to more easily integrate their projects.

Hasting’s Gifford predicts the growing importance of video tours to replace live travel and events wherever possible. He’s also anticipating more integrated sink / vanity options, with solid-surface tubs continuing their popularity, and while no one wants to hear that, he notes, prices are rising for all products due to the increase. raw material costs.

Among the designers, Serra plans devices with scalable technology, more dining space in the kitchens and more storage for several cooks. Machado-Rosas expects technology to appear in more products and smart home systems to become more affordable, with continued attention to creating calming spaces, versatile rooms, larger pantries and more. personalized bathrooms. She also expects minimalism to be highly trending for her weaklings.
maintenance benefits.

Homebuilder Clark expects to see more hidden kitchens, induction appliances, multi-function appliances, and fewer upper cabinets. She predicts bathrooms will receive more artisanal materials, sound and light upgrades for spa effects, and even what she calls family wellness suites. These would look like high-end spa facilities with steam or sauna areas, grooming stations, and central shower stalls.

While 2021 has kept many professionals in the design industry at home, facing inventory and other challenges, 2022 is already shaping up to be a more active, in-person year. The Kitchen & Bath Industry Show, again paired with the International Builders’ Show, will meet in person in Orlando in February. Exhibitors reflecting the trends observed by these professionals will be on hand to share their products. I will be there. Are you going? ▪

RTL Today – Netherlands: Early closure of bars, restaurants and shops https://embroidery2u.com/rtl-today-netherlands-early-closure-of-bars-restaurants-and-shops/ Fri, 26 Nov 2021 15:00:00 +0000 https://embroidery2u.com/rtl-today-netherlands-early-closure-of-bars-restaurants-and-shops/ The Netherlands will tighten its partial Covid lockdown on Friday with the early closure of bars, restaurants and shops, as police prepare for possible further riots on sidewalks.

Schools will, however, remain open under measures to be unveiled by Prime Minister Mark Rutte at a 7 p.m. press conference, Dutch media reported.

Hospitals will also cancel planned operations to free up beds as cases hit record highs of more than 20,000 infections a day, despite 85% of Dutch adults being vaccinated, the health minister said.

But new restrictions risk escalating a tense situation after four nights of unrest across the country, including in the port city of Rotterdam where five rioters were shot dead by police.

“We are keeping our eyes and ears open and we are ready,” Rotterdam police spokesman Gijs van Nimwegen told AFP.

“We hope that things will remain calm in Rotterdam and the rest of the Netherlands.”

The Dutch government decided at a meeting on Friday that non-essential shops, bars, cafes, restaurants, cinemas and restaurants were to close from 5 p.m. to 5 a.m., starting Sunday, public broadcaster NOS reported.

Non-essential stores were previously allowed to stay open until 6 p.m. and food service establishments until 8 p.m.

Schools will remain open, despite the biggest increase in infections among children, but students aged 10 and above must wear masks, NOS said citing sources in the cabinet.

Health experts from the Dutch Outbreak Management Team are said to have estimated that a new closure of schools, as was the case at the start of the pandemic, would be harmful to children.

But some experts have called for schools to be closed to stop the wave of infections caused by young people that is overwhelming hospitals.

Dutch authorities recorded 21,350 new infections on Friday, slightly below the seven-day average of 22,258.

Hospitals will cancel non-critical operations such as knee and hip surgeries, while critical operations such as heart and cancer treatments may have to be postponed, Health Minister Hugo de Jonge said.

The Dutch “should prepare for a harsh winter,” de Jonge added.

The Netherlands lifted most restrictions on coronaviruses in September, but was forced to reintroduce them in October, sparking angry protests.

Protests erupted in The Hague during the Prime Minister’s last two press conferences on Covid, with police using water cannons to disperse protesters.

Riots broke out in Rotterdam last Friday after a Covid protest, and unrest spread to The Hague on Saturday and other cities including Groningen in the north on Sunday and Monday.

At least 173 people have been arrested across the country.

The mayor of Nijmegen near the German border has meanwhile banned a demonstration scheduled for Sunday against measures against the coronavirus “because of a serious risk of disturbing public order”.

Woodstar Events Opens in Woodstock | Nvdaily https://embroidery2u.com/woodstar-events-opens-in-woodstock-nvdaily/ Thu, 25 Nov 2021 19:33:00 +0000 https://embroidery2u.com/woodstar-events-opens-in-woodstock-nvdaily/

WOODSTOCK – Javier Wong said he understands the importance of working for something as well as providing service to his community.

So he decided to kill two birds with one stone with Woodstar Events, a new event center he and his family opened at 766 S. Main St. in Woodstock.

The event center, which can accommodate anything from weddings to family game nights, could possibly one day be a larger restaurant to serve as an extension to his family’s restaurant next door, Mary’s Botanitas.

“We wanted to have a full-size restaurant, and we looked at this place right next to us,” Wong said following a ribbon cut with the Shenandoah County Chamber of Commerce on Tuesday. “The initial investment for a restaurant is very high, so my sister came up with the idea of ​​making this place a place until I had enough money to make a full-size restaurant.”

Wong’s mother, Mary Ferreira, owns and cooks at the restaurant next door, and Wong and her sister, Jessica, will continue to help with both businesses.

The space will accommodate 150 people, Wong said, and it will be able to provide tables and chairs as well as decorations and catering.

“We want people to have a beautiful open space so that they can celebrate their special occasions,” Wong said.

Wong said they would host family game nights open to the public from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. on Tuesdays and Thursdays to allow the community to enjoy the space. It’s also a way to help young minds develop, he said.

“People can come here and play with their kids and friends with board games, puzzles and different activities,” he said. “It’s a way to socialize on a more real level than playing video games or something like that. We want people to socialize. Playing board games helps children develop problem-solving skills. I play board games a lot with my nephews, and that’s a very positive thing for them.

Wong and his family moved to the Woodstock area in 2001. He said his grandfather worked in apple picking and chicken factories in the area. Since 2001, Wong said his family has worked hard to keep the family business strong and grow it.

“We love Woodstock. We really appreciate the kindness of the people here. We want to stay here, ”he said. “A lot of people think that working with family makes things difficult, but we grew up together and we just know what to do to get things done.”

If you would like to reserve the space, Woodstar Events can be found on Facebook and Google. Those interested can also call 540-481-5628.
