    Iranian architecture displays a class and elegance that cannot be matched with any other style of architecture and design. It is quite distinct from that of Muslim countries. The major features of Iranian architecture are: structural ingenuity basically in vault and dome construction; a skill of decoration with freedom and intricacy incomparable to any other form of architecture.

    The pre-Islamic buildings include the remarkable Elamite ziggurat at Chogha Zanbil. Baked brick was used for outer surfaces by the 12th century BC. Most of the greatest buildings were built with a religious purpose, and even in secular buildings religious influences are entirely absent. Palaces were present, and their shapes, sizes and colors varied according to the ruling dynasty.

    The first great development of ancient Persian architecture took place under the Achaemenid dynasty during the Persian Empire, from about 550 to 330 BC. There are numerous remains of Achaemenian period, including two palaces, a sacred precinct, a citadel, a tower, and the tomb of Cyrus.

    Royal architecture under the Achaemenid also included tombs cut in solid rock, of which the best-known examples are those at Naqshah Rostam near Persepolis. Little is known of the popular building practices of the period, but archaeologists believe that the ordinary dwelling was made of mud brick. After the conquest of Persia by Alexander the Great, Greek influence, in its late, Hellenistic phase, was predominant in the arts of Persia. Examples include fragments of bronze sculpture found at Shami, and the Parthian sculptural reliefs at Behistun.

    During the Islamic period “mosques” became the major buildings in Iranian architecture. Outstanding examples of early Islamic Iranian architecture include the Mosque of Baghdad built in 764, the Great Mosque at Samarra erected in 847, and the early 10th-century mosque at Nayin.

    After the 17th century, Iranian artists copied European paintings and engravings, and the native traditions declined. But Iranian architecture still managed to leave a huge impact on the world.

    It’s your first time away from home. College may be a little scary to you. You get your own space to share with a bunch of other people making it feel like a 24-7 sleepover. But wait. You like sports and your roomie likes movies. How in the world will you decorate your room?

    Posters

    Enter the poster. Posters have been around for hundreds of years. They provide color, themes and cover wall space to perfection. If the poster you choose is especially important to you get it framed so that it lasts longer.

    Something Special From Home

    So posters are the first way to decorate. Second, did you have something really special in your room at home, say a trophy or ribbon you had won? Just having that in your room will help give you the security and confidence you need to succeed while you are away at college.

    Stereo

    Third…How about your stereo? Bringing your own stereo to college along with your CD collection can make you one of the popular kids on campus. After dinner and before studying blast those tunes down the hall and get everyone dancing away their energy and having fun. Then everyone can settle in for an evening at the books.

    Stuffed Toys

    Fourth…Did you have a special stuffed animal or stuffed toy on your bed at home? This is more for the girls than the guys obviously but if it was a stuffed animal that your best friend or little brother had given you it will have a unique place in your heart so give it a special spot in your dorm room.

    Hats

    Fifth…Hats! For the guys, a collection of baseball hats will tell everyone about you and your favorite teams. Some hats may have pins you collected as you went from event to event. Imagine having a Yankees cap with pins of each of their World Series Championships. You would certainly stand out in a crowd of baseball fans. Maybe you were on a trip and picked up a new cap. That could start a conversation with a new friend. And with baseball caps you can buy an inexpensive hanger to put on the back of your closet door, keeping them in one place and readily accessible.

    Decorating your dorm space at college is extremely important. It will make you feel at home (as best you can) and it will be a quiet and familiar place you can return to at the end of a busy school day. Think about what you want to take away with you and make decorating the first thing you do when you arrive. Get that dorm room looking and feeling like your home for the school year.

    If you have feng shui training, then you know how important it is to put these principles into practice in your home and work spaces. If you haven’t had any classes or training in feng shui but would still like to fill your home with the applied principles of it, then feng shui consultations are probably right up your alley. The great thing about feng shui consulting (as opposed to going out and taking classes on your own) is that it provides you with personalized information, direct from a professional.

    Rather than learning the principles and then attempting to apply them, amateur-style, to your own home, an experienced professional can take a look at your living and working spaces and tell you how to optimize them for energy flow. They can also give you pointers on improving other aspects of your life that can be manipulated with feng shui. Does your family fight a lot in the living room? Do you have trouble focusing when working at your desk? Both of these are things that can be improved through the use of feng shui.

    You can create warmth in the kitchen, romance in the bedroom, and creative, focused productivity in the office, when you room is optimized for those very things. Of course, it is up to you, as the resident of the space, to maintain these spaces in a way that continues to be supportive of this energy and function. One way to stay on top of things is to do what is sometimes known as maintenance cleaning. All this means is that you clean up as you go along, rather than waiting to do it all in one big swoop. That doesn’t mean you have to clean your house every day (who has time for that?), but it does mean cleaning up after you use or dirty any given space. In the bathroom, for example, wiping down the fixtures and counter after using the sink will keep everything spot-free and shiny. It will also make your bathroom a more welcoming place each time you walk in. That way, when it comes time for the weekend cleaning, you’ll have much less to do and won’t feel overwhelmed with how much there is to clean up.

    Sometimes, bringing feng shui into a space can help the inhabitants respect the space and its meaning on a deeper level. If you do have feng shui consulting, be sure to share what you’ve learned with the entire family. Even if they don’t all believe fully in the art, they will hopefully respect your intentions regarding their home, and they will certainly appreciate how wonderful the whole house looks and feels!

    Creating a Request for Proposal

    The process of hiring the best structured cabling contractor for the job will usually involve issuing what is known as a Request for Proposal or RFP. RFP’s are simply documents that let potential bidders know exactly what you want and provide them with the chance to convince you that they are the best choice for the job. As a bonus, RFPs also help you to organize your thoughts in terms of what type of voice and data applications you want included in the cabling system.

    All sorts of information can be included in an RFP. An overview of the project itself is a good idea, since bidders will want to know if the system is intended for a hospital versus an office building or school. Breaking the document down into sections with specific questions related to each communication application you need in the network will also be helpful. Make it clear you want the proposal to follow the same general format of the RFP. Doing so will make it much easier to compare each of the proposals point by point and identify who is providing answers with solid information.

    A crucial element of the RFP is a breakdown of the costs associated with designing and installing the structured cabling system. Ideally, you want quotes and estimates for each of the components necessary to build the right type of system. Data cabling contractors are used to providing this type of detail, so don’t hesitate to ask for the breakdown to be included in the proposal. Keep in mind those estimates and quotes can be included as an attachment to the main proposal, or you can opt to have the costs associated with each section, with the total cost included as a final section in the document.

    Due Dates

    Always include a due date with every RFP you send to project bidders. Make it clear that any proposals received after the due date will not be considered – no exceptions. This will make it much easier for you to settle down with all the structured cabling bids at one time, go through all of them in a logical and orderly manner, and determine which proposal reflects the best combination of price and expertise.

    Keep in mind that once you’ve gone through all the voice and data cabling bids and made your selection, notify your first choice and make plans to enter into a formal contract. At the same time, notify the other contractors who submitted proposals of your decision and thank them for their submissions. This will help to maintain good will and increase the chances that they will be willing to work with you if your first choice doesn’t work out for some reason.
