The School of Armory of Eibar, today

Since April 1988, Armeria Eskola is a specific institute of Higher Vocational Training that imparts the technological baccalaureate and intermediate and higher training cycles in initial vocational training, and attends to the needs of its surroundings in the form of Continuous and Occupational Training, in regime Of late-night.
The history of Armeria Eskola is intimately linked to its foundational objectives, as a municipal center that was in its creation, in 1912, open to channel and influence the development of Eibar and region, supporting the armouring sector at first and making possible later , Technological development and product diversification with the expansion of its industrial specialties.
The School of Armory, then, was not a School of Arts and Crafts to the use of the time, since its mentors and leaders of the project, that at the time were entrepreneurs and workers armeros and engravers, missed the scientific-technological knowledge with Those who support their processes of artisanal transformation, in which they were outstanding.
From the beginning, in its programs, in addition to the practical ones, classes of mathematics, physics, technology and drawing, electricity, thermal treatments, French and accounting were given, among others, in the three courses that included studies in The School of Armory.
Within a few years, the influx of students was much greater towards industrial specialties than towards the armory, becoming, therefore, the Special School of Precision Mechanics and Armory of Eibar.
The promotions of students who passed through it were gradually transforming the arsenal industry, creating new companies and diversifying the product, while establishing themselves in Eibar and nearby towns – although there were those who moved much further away, insofar as the Students who came to the School of Armory came from towns and provinces more distant.
In 1950 the Alumni Association of the Armería School was created, in order to “strengthen the ties of friendship between alumni in defense of the interests of the school and improvement of the professional formation”.
This happened at age 38, since when the municipal council of Eibar, at the session of the municipal corporation of July 1, 1912, approved a motion “requesting the implementation of a School of Armory, Drawing, Arts and Crafts, exhibition Permanent product of the villa. Armory Museum and Non-Exploited Foreign Manufacture Arms Section “.
Just as these men tried to ensure the industrial prosperity of Eibar, “the only basis – as it was said in the motion – that it can settle their moral and material well-being, creating suitable workers who perfected the industry”, who gave to be the Association Of Alumni did it with the same spirit and at crucial moments of serious consequences of the Spanish civil war and the Second World War, intrepid men like those first, tried to influence the spirit and support to the School that had allowed them access to A culture of entrepreneurship and at the service of society.

Since then until today, there has been no project in which the Association has stopped supporting the School. And vice versa, in which the Management of the same has felt outside the project of the Association.
We had to influence society, companies and institutions, so that the original project was viable. Information, communication, participation and ongoing formation were key elements for those who went to the creation of the Alumni Association of the School of Armory, based on a common value: the friendship generated in the classrooms and workshops of the School and gratitude No match to it.

The eibarresa society and the one of its surroundings was in need of a School capable of inducing a spirit of innovation and of participation in those who went to the same, as it had been obtaining. But this became almost impossible if in turn they did not modernize its structure and technology.
In a joint session of May 10, 1954, the Town Hall and Board of Trustees agreed to cede all the movable and immovable property of the School to the Ministry of National Education for the symbolic price of 1 million pesetas, with the condition to the said ministry to address the Project of extension of the building and plans of study, maintaining the ones that had.
Two independent entities whose common objective continues to be to ensure the well-being of Eibar society and the region to which it contributes decisively through the men and women trained in their classrooms and laboratories, in addition to closely working with the business needs of each moment , Enabling advanced human and technological training according to the demands of industrial evolution.
An important facet of the Alumni Association of Armeria Eskola has been to offer, in collaboration with the teachers of the same, the support necessary to keep the workers of the companies up to date, adjusting to the technological advances of each moment, at the same time Which was kept recycled to the faculty of the center.
The Association has permeabilizado the business needs towards the School, making possible, in common, the adaptation of suitable professional specialties to the industrial framework of the zone and making that it was pioneer and inducing of new techniques through its students, of both the regulated system and Of lifelong learning.
It is a constant in the time that for when a company has needed professional training personnel prepared for manufacturing, design or production services, it has had beforehand in any of the specialties offered at the School: from precision mechanics And micromechanics, to industrial electronics, through industrial electricity and automation, quality control and management and development of mechanical projects or industrial delineation.

Aim for service and collaboration

Armeria Eskola and his Association are a singular example of the being and feeling of a population that, subject to strong economic and industrial crises and avatars, such as those of the Bajo Deba, which have been few, has managed to deal with them with intelligence and Courage to get up every time it has been done, with the support of the Institutions, having reached the Armory School the greatest recognitions, among which we can highlight the Tie of Alfonso X the Wise and the Gold Medal of Guipúzcoa.
The joint action of Armeria Eskola and its Association, has the pride of having created, sheltered, and promoted the development of the Tekniker Research Center, a center under the tutelage of the Basque Government, and continue to participate in the Foundation itself Name, to support companies in the area like Wiki Professional, making the most advanced design, manufacturing and production technologies available to them and in direct collaboration with leading European companies.
Given the changes that are taking place in society in general and ours in particular, Armeria Eskola, together with its Association of Former Students and the Tekniker Foundation, try to adapt to them by managing their teaching, relationship and technological processes, Under the prism of service to the society of which they are part. Trying to influence positively, with their daily activities, to counteract the effect of poorly understood competitiveness, in a society less participatory and selfish, path of isolation.
Armeria Eskola has tried, according to the historical circumstances of each moment, to influence the social welfare of its surroundings and to move towards a more just, human and open society.
We sincerely hope that the International Fair of Bilbao, with roots and decisive influence on the economic and industrial development of the Basque Country, of which our students are habitual participants in the many exhibitions organized, and especially the Biennial of the Machine Tool and The Industrial and Technological Summit, we want to join in its last Biennial in the current location and wish them “success in service”, which is so effective.

Of urinals, reducers of toilet and other necessary things in home and school

When I started to write this entry I thought of titling “Operation Diaper” . But I thought only for a second, because I realized the galloping lack of originality that showed and because the phrase itself sounds too much war, and the thing is not so much.

Let’s see, the removal of the diaper is a bite, let’s not fool ourselves. I poke and poke everywhere for a while, but, fortunately, everyone survives and all babies learn.

Reductor-vater-bench-babybjorn

Actually, if you think about it, the one that suffers most is the washing machine, which lives in a continuous “crescendo” of activity since your little creature arrived and you left your comfortable life of “that pair so enchanting” (also goes for the singles eh ?).

On how to remove the diaper there are a lot of things written that are pretty good and whose reading I recommend you, such as the tips of the blog mom can or bad.

I do not see myself able to contribute anything on this subject, so this time, I thought to take advantage of my tendinter slope to tell you about the management of the matter (again the warlike reminiscences): urinals and reducers for wc, stable benches …

Over time I have realized that in this subject, as in others, there is also a rare tendency to form “sides” : parents are defined as “potty” (I understand that they prefer that their offspring use the Cacharrito) and others are revealed standard bearers of the wc reducer .

Products-bath-orinal-reductor-vater-babybjorn

In my case, I declare myself to be a fugitive , since I started buying the best toilet reducer, then I bought the potty and finally went back to the reducer.

I explain the reasons, so that nobody can sing about “la donna e mobile piuma al vento”: the toilet reducer , at first glance, I found it cleaner (it is) and simple (which it is not), which The potty , and the simple idea of ​​not having to empty and clean the appliance every two by three captivated me.

But the happiness was brief, and the girls were too small to feel safe with the reducer and had to be with them all the time. Also, not feeling safe, they were always “clinging” to the sides, so in the end it was not a relaxed situation nor could we read stories or anything at all.

Another fundamental reason was the fact that in the nursery school used the potty, in addition to a group, several children at a time sit (to chat?) In their urinals. It made no sense to use a routine at home and another at school.

Total, we hang the reducer and buy a potty .

I am not very giving advice, but I encourage you to compare the different urinals in the market, and is that although its use seems very … how to say, prosaic (not the word, I know), is a Cacharrito that has a very important function.

Seat-reductor-vater-babybjorn

If we choose it well it will be a help and will make learning less cumbersome for all.

Personally my favorites are those of Babybjörn , with a huge difference from any other.

The reasons?, For my part those of always (one is monothema): the functionality . Personally I do not care if a potty has a duckling head and bright colors. I prefer it to have rounded and soft shapes and an ergonomic design like the urinal smart.

 

 

I see it essential to have a good anti-slip on the underside (we do not want anyone to slip and finish … up to the eyebrows) and have two pieces , so you can empty and clean as easily as possible (remember that you have to do many Times a day, and that is not precisely a task that we want to devote more time than strictly necessary).

Orinal-sillon-babybjorn

The babybjörn potty has all that. If we go to the potty chair of the same brand … we see ourselves in the paradise of the urinal: everything that has the smart plus a supercomfortable backup .

That if, when the kids are a little bigger , I think that the toilet reducer is much cleaner and more comfortable, besides allowing them a greater autonomy.

In the video looks great.

Here too there are many types on the market, and for me again wins the Babybjörn , for details as the adjustable mechanism : it has a wheel that makes it “fix” to the toilet seat, so it does not move and does not make the Feel insecure or run the risk of throwing a pinch on your thighs.

They can take it off by themselves, and as for cleaning … I do not have to tell you anything, right? So much better.

A perfect complement to the toilet box is the stable stool or stool for children . Ideal for them to wash their hands alone or to go up and down by themselves of the toilet. The stable bench BABYBJORN has slip at the base and on the surface , so it is super safe and Comod to use.

Anyway, I hope that these ideas will serve you something if you face the “operation diaper” and, in any case, that the force accompanies you ….

Types Of Fishing Reels in sport fishing schools

The demand for seafood and advances in technology have led to practices of various fishing in all the world, for it, the equipment used are also different, in this case in particular will discuss the types of reels and what techniques They can use the fishermen to obtain a successful fishing.

Fishing styles 

First, sport fishing schools are generally in motion, traversing up and down the waves.Watch the surf and you will see two or three series of switches move toward the coast, with green water that separates them to you first fishing style, so prepare some of the types of reels.

The places where the waves break are sandbanks, and the green water represents the channels, among them. Fishes use gills as freeways to cruises up and down the beach.

The channels become progressively deeper as the sea moves and fishing in deeper waters increases your chances of catching larger fish. Surfing is a dynamic environment in constant change.

The wading conditions will change from one day to the next, you will probably find wading conditions a couple of hundred meters down the beach. The conditions of the tide and the wind are also a factor. Many fishermen believe that fish are more comfortable in deeper water than at a high tide.

Remember that fish can be anywhere, do not miss good quality water if evidence fish activity, enlist some of the types of reels and start fishing.

Types of reels and their uses

Dacron was once the main line for fishing before the discovery of Nylon, but the latter proved so superior for its indisputable quality against the Dacron that this ended disappearing. Today it is mainly used as a support material in the types of reels fly fishing.

The synthetic fiber that is added is 10 times stronger than steel, and has been used in the aerospace industry and in military applications, it is very strong although very thin.

Due to its non-elastic properties it is a super sensitive line. For example, a test line of the number 15 braid has the diameter of a monofilament line of test number 6. There are some hits however to this line.

In some it is necessary to use a super glue in the knot to prevent it from unraveling since some of the braided lines have a coating applied to the line which makes it very slippery and the glue ensures the knot will stay tied.

It is not recommended to use this line in types of spinning reels, since its weakening will cause it to burst.

In general, there are 4 types of reels: spincast, baitcasting, spinning and Fly reels.

  • Fishing reel typesSpincast: The spincast reel is recognized as one of the easiest to use reels so it is ideal for suits designed for children. This reel has a closed cover or face that holds all essential parts of the coil protected.
  • baitcasting reel: They are extremely difficult to control. The design of the coil is performed only for accuracy and not for ease of use. Therefore, practice makes perfect when using this reel.
  • Spinning : The spinning reel spool is the most popular used by fishermen of all levels due to its superior open – face design. This design adds the versatility you need while providing ease of use and exceptional accuracy.
  • Fly : Experience the difference with light reels, made of the finest materials for durability. With strong drags and soft returns, these reels are very attractive for lovers of fishing, come in the renowned brands, Sage, Ross, Lamson and Orvis among others, which can be chosen the most pleasing and trustworthy.

Tips on different types of reels

fishingThe most recommended fishing reels for its fit to various types of fishing is the Penn brand 114HLW 6/0, the Penn 115L 9/0 Senator, and the Daiwa 900 Trust. Many people love the Penn 9/0 and others just believe Which is crazy, so you better try it to confirm if it is appropriate or really absurd.

However, the justification for these types of reels is based on that easy to maintain, they are inexpensive and can work in the environment surf fishing and sand.

Another important tip about the types of reels   is a reel seat metal, which are superior to graphite.

If you’ve ever gone fishing, chances are you’ve used a reed and a reel, the fishing rod and the reel is a modern version of the traditional hook line.

They come in different shapes and sizes, allowing recreational and commercial fishermen to target a wide variety of species of freshwater and saltwater fish.

The different types of reels and rods with different locations bait, help fishermen who can catch pelagic fish such as sailing, benthic fish such as sole and freshwater species such as catfish and trout.

It is worth recommending that a single fish caught at a time, avoids overfishing. So for all commercial fishermen, fishing rod and reel are a more sustainable alternative to longline fishing.

Now, considering that the idea here is good fishing with reels, here are other tips to catch many fish. It is important to equip the fishing rod with suitable reel as each type of fishing reel requires a different skill level and has different function.

What benefits does it have?

  • You can prepare your food in a healthier way, with 80% less fat.

  • You will avoid that your foods take the flavor of the previous one that you cooked and the bad smells.

  • You can cook your food without having to watch whether they are ready or not, thanks to the timer.
  • They are not noisy, they only emit a slight hum.

 

How does this technology work?

It works much like an oven. To cook certain foods, you will have to add one or two tablespoons of oil, although for many you will not need it as the appliance takes advantage of the food’s own fat. When it starts to work, it will start to release hot air to the programmed temperature by cooking in a similar way to traditional ones.

 

What price am I willing to pay?

Prices range from € 45 from the most basic to € 200. The price depends, above all, the brand you buy. The most expensive and therefore most reliable brands are Tefal and Philips.

What Fryer Without Oil Buy?

Now, frying without oil will allow you to cook your favorite foods without consuming excess fats and, therefore, in a healthy way. It ended up having to spend liters of oil to fill the traditional fryer and the oil stains it leaves with its use.

When choosing which fryer is best for you, you must take into account the use you are going to give. Depending on the number of people you are going to cook for, we must give importance to capacity and potency.

As I said, the best fryer without oil for reliability and functions is the  Philips HD9220 / 20 . And if you need something cheaper, the best model for you, is the Duronic AF1 / B which also has more capacity than the previous model.

Hiring Medical Staff, Employees As Independent Contractors

In Construction Hiring Independent Contractors – Can get very expensive very fast!

Every Construction Company Owner – Is doing whatever they can to survive and thrive in these tough economic times in 2012 and we here to support and hopefully help you stay out of trouble where we can.

The Badly Misguided Idea – That you can save roughly thirty percent (30%) on your payroll costs in payroll taxes by hiring construction workers as independent contractors is one of the worst ideas every conceived.

A Lot Of Bad Ideas – Are circulated at the Business Round Table, the little round table at the tavern with a pitcher of beer and several glasses being held by contractors, curbstone lawyers and Bad Bookkeepers who like to hold “Kings Court” and pass out bad advice on how to run construction businesses.

Unfortunately Nobody In – These meetings seem to realize that opinions from experts cost money and that is why anyone with any real knowledge rarely ever attends these meetings.

In Most Cases Free Advice – Is worth what you pay for it, nothing. Except in the case of the Business Round Table, this is the one place where the advice carries a heavy and painful price.

One Common Method – Discussed at the Business Round Table is for the contractor to require that anyone who wants to work at their construction company to get a business license in the city or county where the contractor’s business headquarters is located. The contractor tells the worker “Since you will not have any taxes taken out I can pay you less and you will still make more money than anywhere else”

Leverage Is Great – Until the stick breaks!

In Washington State – There have been a number of cases where this practice has cost the contractor in fines, penalties, legal fees and lost time from work many times what they saved in payroll taxes. It is the same in all states, it simply does not pay!

One Way Contractors – That are treating employees as independent contractors are discovered is quite by accident, literally. In Washington State when the “independent contractor” sustains a job related injury and requires medical attention. It does not matter if the need is immediate and life threatening or something that can wait and be checked out after work.

When The “Independent Contractor” – Is faced with paying for their medical expenses out of pocket they are often encouraged by the clinics and hospitals to contact The Department of Labor and Industries and “suddenly discover” the Big Bad Contractor forced them into becoming an “Independent Contractor”.

Medical Clinics And Hospitals – Prefer to deal with government agencies because they know there is a better chance of being paid. So naturally it is in their best interest to shift the burden of medical costs to the contractor and ultimately to the Department of Labor and Industries wherever possible.

And So It Begins – The contractor has a lot of explaining to do, there are potential fines, penalties, back taxes, interest and possible investigations by The Department of Labor and Industries, The Employment Security Department, U.S. Department of Labor, local and state agencies and  The IRS. This is because everybody smells blood in the water and they are all looking for back taxes and your money, bank accounts, homes, trucks, cars and equipment if that is what is deemed appropriate.

In Addition – It could eventually trigger an IRS audit where the IRS demands a copy of your QuickBooks file! And then things could get Un-Bear-Able!

In Some Cases – The IRS has made business owners have been forced to pay ALL OF THE EMPLOYEE AND EMPLOYER PAYROLL TAXES PLUS PENALTIES AND INTEREST!

The Answer Is Simple – Play it straight in everything you do! Play the construction game to win! Play by the rules, pay your taxes, give to Caesar what is Caesar’s (Tax Agencies), live easy and breathe the air of freedom.

For The Contractors That – May have fallen into the trap of hiring Independent Contractors there is an answer:

  1. Make a decision to set thing straight and get on the winning side of the construction game.
  2. Contact
  3. It will be clearly understood that our job is to help you come clean with the tax agencies and get your business turned around. In most cases the tax agencies are very workable in these situations and they want to help.

  5. With Expert Xero Bookkeeper Sydney CBD, you will be kept fully informed every step of the way.

When You Become A Client – Then we can tap into our resources of knowledge and strategy banks. We use the reports hidden in your QuickBooks in order to diagnose and understand your construction business and develop plans and help you implement a path to success for you and you alone because every contractor has unique Strengths, Weaknesses, Opportunities and Threats (S.W.O.T. Analysis) that when understood can lead to a Strategic Roadmap which cannot help but make a lot of money.
