Art Deco is an eclectic artistic and design style which had its origins in Paris in the first decades of the 20th century. The style originated in the 1920s and continued to be employed until after World War II. The term "art deco" first saw wide use after an exhibition in 1966, referring to the 1925 Exposition Internationale des Arts Décoratifs et Industriels Modernes that was the culmination of high-end style moderne in Paris. Led by the best designers in the decorative arts such as fashion, and interior design, Art Deco affected all areas of design throughout the 1920s and 1930s, including architecture and industrial design, as well as the visual arts such as painting, the graphic arts and film. At the time, this style was seen as elegant, glamorous, functional and modern.
Art Deco moved away from the soft pastels and organic forms of Art Nouveau and embraced influences from many different styles and movements of the early 20th century, including Neoclassical, Constructivism, Cubism, Modernism, and Futurism. Its popularity peaked in Europe during the Roaring Twenties and continued strongly in the US through the 1930s. Although many design movements have political or philosophical roots or intentions, Art Deco was purely decorative.
Art Deco experienced a decline in popularity during the late 1930s and early 1940s, but experienced a resurgence in the 1960s with the first book on the subject by Bevis Hillier in 1968 to coincide with the Minneapolis exhibition and continued with the popularization of graphic design in the 1980s. Art Deco had a profound influence on many later artistic movements, such as Memphis and Pop art.
Surviving examples may still be seen in many different locations worldwide, in countries as diverse as China (Shanghai), the UK, Spain, Cuba, Indonesia, the Philippines, Argentina, Romania, Australia, Canada, New Zealand, India, Brazil, Colombia, and the United States (primarily in Miami Beach, Los Angeles, and New York City). Many classic examples still exist in the form of architecture in many major cities. The Empire State Building and Chrysler Building, both in New York City, are two of the largest and best-known examples of the style.

Apply the ethnic ornament in the house should not be indiscriminate. It takes special attention so it looks more leverage and make more high-value occupancy.
We often find ethnic ornaments on display or placed in a room. Its presence certainly not without cause. Some residents tried to apply it because of the ethnic ornament usually has a special meaning.
No doubt, every ethnic decoration on a table for example, whether it be stand alone or be grouped, would give a different meaning in the room. But make no mistake, ethnic ornaments different with ancient decorations.
The difference is, ethnic ornaments typically comes from our own country. In a sense, work or thing created is the result of craft that comes from own country. While the ancient decoration of origin can vary.
Not always from the country itself, could have been from abroad. Practically ancient for a place and time of making the already ancient and rare.
So, how to put decorations in the room? It's important to know that the intended meaning can be achieved. Therefore, some cases that often occur, ethnic decoration it has been just a pile of goods that no more than "warehouse".
For that, you should put these traditional decorations in the right place so as not to be merely supporting elements of space, but can also be a focal point of the room. No matter the ethnic decoration cheap or expensive, if you are good at placing it, garnish it actually will make the space more valuable.
Even though it was expensive for example, will not be impressed either if not given the support of light, in the sense of dark, so nothing is highlighted. Other cases, there is also a traditional objects put together for some types of goods.
Another thing that is no less important is the proportion. Do not let the ornaments that you apply does not fit in the space. For example, you want to install woven fabric on one side wall of the small space. If the fabric is greater than the size of the room, decorative objects that will not make the room look beautiful, but instead the room becomes increasingly narrow. So, measure the amount of decoration with spatial scale should be considered, both height and width of the wall should be balanced.

Although less well loved than social media, email seems still be a more effective media campaign for the buyer. At least, according to Foresee Results Study.
Traditional techniques such as email campaigns, search engine results, even more ads can influence people to visit the U.S. retail sites, compared to the interaction through social media.
Based on research on the effectiveness of social media on U.S. retail, only 5 percent who said the interaction of social media as an excuse to visit the retail site. Most consumers claimed to access the site because it knew the brand being promoted, receive promotional emails or mouth-to-mouth, and read product reviews related sites.
In addition, note also that consumers prefer to interact with the seller via email or their official website, through social networking instead. Statistics revealed that only 8 percent of online shoppers who prefer social media as their communication tool with the seller.
According to President and CEO Foresee Results, Larry Freed, every seller must know the effectiveness of each promotion technique to their customers.
“There should be serious thought to find out whether the seller must invest in social media. If the answer is yes, they have to utilize it as much as possible by ensuring interaction through social media successfully meet the needs and expectations of consumers,” said Freed.

As you recognize that Google Nexus One really out of date, but now its time to get upgrade. Yup Google just announced video chat capabilities in Android 2.3.4 (coming out with Nexus S handset).
As Google said, the video chat feature works with Google Talk and can be used on either Wi-Fi or mobile broadband networks if your phone carrier allows it. Just like the video calling feature in the desktop version of Google Talk, a camera icon appears next to online contacts that can video chat. Tap the camera and the video call begins. Unfortunately, Android devices only support a single account for Google Talk. Need a little change here???

Oak Trail also offers support for operating systems, including Android, MeeGo and Windows.
“Z670 helps provide the efficientcy for smaller devices, thinner and it have integrated packaging graphics with memory controller directly into the processor,”said Davis.
“This chip is 60 percent smaller than previous generation design with lower power for the device with no fan and is able to perform power saving features for a certain period,” he said.
Yup, the Z670 would be a serious challenger for ARM in the mobile market. Industry analyst Rob Enderle believes Oak Trail is currently the “best chance” for Intel to take the position of ARM.
“ARM has a excellent position in the smartphone market and a new tablet, with Intel showing some success in that area. In addition, with Microsoft’s announcement to go to the ARM for Windows and improve the ARM experiment for servers, Intel really have risky market,” said Enderle .
“Obviously, Oak Trail is the best opportunity for Intel to sustain the ARM blow,” he said.
Enderle also stressed in order to “fight” effectively against ARM, they will likely require the combined resources of all the vendors based on X86 architecture.

(AdSense VS Traffic Exchange)
After doing up nice site or blog with some fascinating content, as the owner we might have problem with how to get lot of visitors to our site or blog. Sometimes we reckon about a traffic exchange which designed to promote visitor traffic to websites or blogs. Through that program we could get lot of visitors as we join it, a member of the network will surf each other’s site.
Just like the PPC program, we have own credit just like 0.5 to 1.0 credit for every site we have visited. And we have to wait for the timer at the top or even the bottom frame of the page, and then click one of the images to match with the given image in order to proceed to the next random site. We can get the credits to assign them to our blog or website, for every visitor we get to our blog, 1 credit will deduct. The more sites we visit the more visitors we get to our blog.
It so simple to “attract” and promote our website through a traffic exchange program, and we don’t need much money because of them are free for us. We need more credits by visiting the other sites, and then use that to visit our blog. In this program we can specify the category of blogs you want to view or the sort of visitors you want to have. I can guarantee if you join this traffic exchange you will get many visitors as you like.
“It has come to our attention that invalid clicks or impressions have been generated on the Google ads on your site(s) through users of third-party programs paid or provided with other incentives to visit your site. Such programs may include, but are not limited to auto-surf, pay-to-surf, pay-to-read, or pay-to-click sites.” You have to know about it, yes it come from the Google administrator that not allow your blog to join this traffic exchange pay as they pay you based on impressions you get to your site. You should not join this program if your blog or site serves the AdSense program, and then your website will get banned from the AdSense program. Poorly thought if you should join traffic exchange because of you will loose the chance to get some treasure on internet through your blog.
The better thought is never to try this traffic exchange program while you have the AdSense program on your site. As the way it counter TOS from the advertising program which paid you based on impressions you get to your site, your site will get annoying from other advertising program. Just play hard on your SEO then manage it with some fantastic content which are can lead your blog to get some interest from the internet users. Have a fantastic day….
