Is the Word Furniture Singular Or Plural

What is a good alternative head lice treatment to use instead of the drug store shampoos?

Pyrethrins are the active ingredient in most lice treatment shampoos. Dog flea and tick shampoo contains a higher concentration of this ingredient and is far cheaper to use. Use it once a week to keep from being re-infested. Remember to wash all bedding. Heat from the dryer will kill them on pillows,stuffed animals etc. Raid makes a fogger for fleas ticks and lice that can be used in the house for carpets and furniture. I even used a fogger in my car because I was afraid they may be in the seats.

How young is too young for a cat to be declawed?

I've had cats all my life and only had one declawed ever. When they are little they seem to be more destructive, just out of playfulness. They have this sticky tape stuff you can put on furniture at major pet stores. They also have these little plastic caps you can actually glue onto the existing claws. They come in all colors, I personally think they are silly, and have not tried them, but they could solve your problem temporarily until she is older. I did not give you a direct answer becasue I just do not know if she is too young or not, but she very well may settle down some and some of these alternatives might save you the expense and trouble of declawing, and save the cat her claws too :).

How To Clean Large Living Room Couch Pillows That Are Heavily Soiled?

I would take the accent pillows, if the covers can not be removed for washing, to a laundromat with a large front-loader and toss them in. If they come out fine, that's great. If they do not , well, that kind do not work for your house with kids spilling food all over. Next time, get ones with removable washable covers. Or get removable covers for the ones you already have. Upholstery cleaning can be done on furniture. I would hire someone rather than do it myself.

is helium bad for you?

Breathing helium is actually dangerous if you are not a professional. If you breath too much two things can happen. 1. If you were forced, you could suffocate, just like having no air to breath. People have died playing in a helium ballon. 2. More likely is this. If you have seen someone faint before you notice that people start to faint and try to catch themselves as they go down. If you breath too much helium, you faint instantly. When this happens, you go straight down to the floor with no cushion from trying to catch yourself. The problem is that your head hits the nearest thing including furniture or the floor itself. Every year people go to the hospital with serious injuries when this happens.

What can possibly be biting me?

My guess would be fleas since they are extremely tiny and can easily hide in the fur of animals or in furniture. But they reproduce rapidly and rely on blood to live. I would get a professional flea dip for your kittens and while they are at the groomer's getting a professional flea dip, stop by Pet Smart and get an aerosol flea killer. Wash anything you can in hot water because water will kill any existing fleas and spray the areas you can not put in the washing machine. It's fleas.

What if the delivery driver thinks they deserve a bigger tip than I give them, say I give them 15%/20% tip for example?

If you are referring to the delivery of food purchased at the supermarket, then, considering the delivery charge you have paid, you could tell the delivery man that he's lucky he got a tip at all. Where I live grocery, delivery men do not expect tips, nor do they wait for them. And I have a question, a tip of 15 or 20 percent of what? Where I live, all the delivery man gets is the address, and the numbers on the delivery boxes that are for each address. He has no idea of the total cost of your purchase.For items such as furniture, washers, fridges and such, here in Israel, we tip whatever we think is adequate, with no relation to the value of the item. A washer that cost 25 percent more than the one your neighbor bought does not weigh any more than his. Why should you pay the delivery man a higher tip than was paid for the delivery cheaper one?

my small bedroom electric heater constantly turns on & off, won't stay on even in the cold weather.?

Clean the vents (use a vacuum attachment). If you are trying to use a small heater in a large space, it may simply be overwhelmed running 'top heat' for long. Turn DOWN the thermostat and see if it runs longer. The unit itself may be overheating since it's only running on full-power without a break. (Think about a person running, you can go a lot longer at a slower pace than you can at a sprint). Also, make sure that the unit has good air circulation around it -- if it's close to the wall or furniture, it may warm up just that little 'pocket' of air, think that it's done, and turn off.

Got any ideas on why i feel this way?

Do you have dogs or cat in house? Doesnt matter if they were always there, you can be allergic to them NOW. New perfume, furniture polish? Do you change your furnace/ac air filter with a quality one every month? That happens a lot,not changeing it every month. Do you drink enough fluids like water? Do you need to change your bedding or bedroom drapes enough? If all else fails, go to your physician or ask a pharmacist. ps. Pharmacists are a great help without the Dr. bill when appropriate

Dryer-fluff air?

Rather than risk the dress in the dryer. Put on a rubber glove. Moisten it (not dripping, just damp) run your hand down the dress and you will pick up the hair. Clean it off the glove and repeat until the dress is clean. This works for furniture and drapes too.

Very mysterious smell..?

Has anything spilt or been left that you havent noticed.? Could be a glass of milk spilt behind a piece of furniture for eg. Maybe you have mice that possibly died in a wall. Have you had any leaks or anything causing water damage or something? Do you have a garbarator, dishwasher, fridge, oven/stove. Alot of the time weird smells come from any of these and it needs to be completelty cleaned out well. Or maybe your furnace vents need cleaning?

My bathroom wall has termite damage and scratch marks from my cats. How do I fix this on a tight budget?

Part 1. This ai not computing for me. Termites start way down, and inside walls, not on walls. Had 'em, fought 'em, but not in a bathroom. Unless the bathroom is covered in cat-nip infused wallpaper, another “mystery“ on the cats. Over the years, I've had them damage fabric on furniture or drapes, window/door screens, water beds, puncture my jeans, etc., but never a bathroom wall. Moving right along - Part 2. Slather on a medium bucket of spackling, sand flat, clean up the debris, prime, and paint your favorite color.

do babies need to crawl before they walk?

No babies do not need to crawl before they walk but it is good if they do. You can get down on the floor with him and crawl around with him to encourage him to crawl. Crawling is part of sequencing in the braind of a baby and if they do not crawl at all and just walk then their sequencing can be off. Studies have shown that babies who dont crawl at all are more likely to have hard time in math. I never thought my daughter would crawl she started pulling up and taking steps holding on to furniture but then one day out of nowhere she could crawl and she could do it good. Dont worry I am sure that your son will do just fine

I Was so Fat I Broke Tables, Chairs and Beds
CHOC-LOVING mum Kayleigh Rampling was mortified when she sat back on a garden chair and it gave way. The solid oak seat had caved in beneath her 19½st bulk - and it wasn't the first time she had broken furniture because of her size.Legs had snapped on tables she leaned on, school furniture had splintered and her bed had cracked TWICE.She gorged on chocolate, fizzy drinks and takeaways and soon ballooned to a size 24. That was in 2013. Two years on, she's lost 9st and wears a size 12.Her inspiration? That chair, a friend's invite to go on a girly holiday to Turkey and an alarming visit to her GP.Kayleigh, 24, who has a son, Tyler, four, says: "My eating was out of control. I would eat anything and everything I could get my hands on."Because I was the only one of my friends with a baby, they would often come round and we'd all get takeaways. "I'd have massive portions, too. If my mum made shepherd's pie or spaghetti bolognese, I'd have as much as my dad. "I also had a soft spot for chocolate and fizzy drinks. "Literally anything with sugar in, I'd shove in my mouth." Kayleigh, who had been a chubby teenager, got a strong indication she would have to do something about her size while chatting to her auntie Lisa at mum Theresa's home. She said: "When I sat down on a garden chair I heard the wood snap. I was mortified. The chair was my dad's pride and joy - solid oak."My auntie laughed about it so I tried to laugh it off too. She told me to pop a cushion on top, so that's what I did. "To this day my dad doesn't know who broke it."She went on: "I used to break everything I sat on. Even at school, chairs would break under my weight."I even broke my bed. I wasn't doing anything special to make it break, I was just sleeping."Kayleigh, of Eltham, South East London, said she found it doubly difficult to keep weight off after having Riley, but got two more incentives early in 2013 - the holiday and the GP visit.In January, her friends started to plan a break to Marmaris in Turkey. Full-time mum Kayleigh says: "I received a text from my best friend Ella asking me if I wanted to join them on holiday."I'd never been away without my family and was excited so of course I said yes. "I was sure my mum could look after Riley for the weekend and I could scrape some cash together."But as I hung up the phone and picked up my knife and fork to continue stuffing my face, something horrible dawned on me. I thought, 'I'm going to be the fat friend on holiday'."I remembered getting stuck in the sea on previous getaways. I was too heavy to drag myself out and up the beach."At about the same time as she booked the holiday, Kayleigh went to her GP for a check-up.She went on: "I was weighed and when I looked down at the scales I saw it said 19st 7lb."I thought it was a joke. I thought I was roughly 13 to 14st at the most. I was stunned. "I had high blood pressure and my BMI was sky high. "All I wanted to do was cry."I sat down on the wall outside the doctor's and felt ashamed of myself."I looked down at my beautiful little boy. He gave me a cheeky smile, poked my belly and laughed."From that moment, Kayleigh banned the sugary drinks, treats and takeaways.She says: "I binned all the junk food I loved. All the fizzy drinks and my stash of bed-time sweets."In my first week of dieting I lost about 5lb and from then on, the weight fell off."I ate balanced meals with no snacks and plenty of salads. It made me feel amazing."I didn't use any diet plan, I just ate sensibly and cut down my portion sizes."Kayleigh lost 3st in the three months before her summer holiday with friends.She says: "I felt a bit better on holiday. I was noticeably smaller, but still felt huge. "Some of the girls were curvy, and others were dead skinny with toned abs, but I was still the largest by a mile."When I came back, I carried on with my healthy eating, and started hitting the gym four times a week while Riley was at nursery."I did a lot of weight training to tone the excess skin I was getting from losing weight."Over the following 20 months Kayleigh lost another 6st and dropped six dress sizes.At 10st 7lb, she now weighs almost half of her former self.Single Kayleigh, who lives alone with Riley, says: "I couldn't be happier. I love my new image. "Everyone always tells me how great I look and some people who have known me for years don't even recognise me now."Looking back, I can't believe I used to be so big and eat so badly."I must have eaten about 3,500 calories a day. It's disgusting."I'm surprised I was able to enjoy life with the lifestyle I chose. I was always so sluggish."Luckily, Riley wasn'trunning around when I was larger because I could not have caught up with him."Now, I go on walks with Riley and we play lots of games together."I still get compliments left, right and centre and it encourages me to stay on target and keep up the good work."My heart still flutters with joy every time I jump on the scales and see my weight."Best of all, I can now sit on anything without worrying about breaking it."Breakfast: Skipped.Lunch: Chips and sausages or a sandwich, plus lots of chocolate.Dinner: Man-sized portion of anything deep-fried, greasy or unhealthy.Snacks: Chocolate bars, crisps, cheesy chips or a pizza.Breakfast: Porridge.Lunch: Chicken salad, with water.Dinner: Healthy homemade meal from scratch.Snacks: Fruit and cereal bars.IF YOU'RE stuck in a behavioural rut, it's hard to face facts until they are pushed right under your nose, writes Sun nutrition expert AMANDA URSELL.In spite of breaking her bed and acknowledging that she needed to be careful of where to sit when out and about, it wasn't until Kayleigh's GP told her the bare facts and figures of her weight that she took stock.Kayleigh's successful weight loss is inspirational and proves that it doesn't matter what your starting point is - if you face up to things, your life can change.Not only does Kayleigh feel better but her future health prospects have improved beyond all recognition, too.Fitness expert LUCY WYNDHAM-READ says: "Kayleigh doing weight training sessions four times a week to tone her muscles must have had a great impact on the weight loss."The more toned your muscles, the more metabolically active you become, which means you will burn more calories."When Riley is not at nursery, she can continue these workouts with squats and lunges at home."And walking with her son is great as she is adding in aerobic exercise - it will maintain her energy levels."Additional reporting by Stacey Byles.Call: 0207 782 4276 Email: Text: SUNWOMAN with a short outline of your story to 86611 (Texts cost 35p plus your standard network charge)

At its height exactly one hundred years ago, Art Nouveau was a concerted attempt to create an international style based on decoration. It was developed by a brilliant and energetic generation of artists and designers, who sought to fashion an art form appropriate to the modern age. During this extraordinary time, urban life as we now understand it was established. Old customs, habits, and artistic styles sat alongside new, combining a wide range of contradictory images and ideas. Many artists, designers, and architects were excited by new technologies and lifestyles, while others retreated into the past, embracing the spirit world, fantasy, and myth. Art Nouveau was in many ways a response to the Industrial Revolution. Some artists welcomed technological progress and embraced the aesthetic possibilities of new materials such as cast iron. Others deplored the shoddiness of mass-produced machine-made goods and aimed to elevate the decorative arts to the level of fine art by applying the highest standards of craftsmanship and design to everyday objects. Art Nouveau designers also believed that all the arts should work in harmony to create a "total work of art," or Gesamtkunstwerk: buildings, furniture, textiles, clothes, and jewelry all conformed to the principles of Art Nouveau------3. what is the role of technology?The word technology is defined as the branch of knowledge that deals with the creation and use of technical means and their interrelation with life, society, and the environment, drawing upon such subjects as industrial arts, engineering, applied science, and pure science. Technology is a major cultural determinant, no less important in shaping human lives than philosophy, religion, social organization, or political systems. In the broadest sense, these forces are also aspects of technology. The French sociologist Jacques Ellul has defined la technique as the totality of all rational methods in every field of human activity, so that, for example, education, law, sports, propaganda, and the social sciences are all technologies in that sense. At the other end of the scale, common parlance limits the terms meaning to specific industrial arts. The terms science and technology are often confounded. The confusion arises because so much of contemporary technology is based on the natural sciences such disciplines as physics, chemistry, biology, and other branches of knowledge that deal with the study, measurement, and understanding of natural phenomena. The achievements of the electronics, pharmaceutical, and plastics industries are based on a huge body of scientific investigation. In simplest terms, the concern of science is why, and of technology, how. The relationship between the two is actually much more complex, however, and varies from industry to industry: some technologies are science intensive, whereas the manufacture of such items as cigarettes or furniture depends much less on science. In fact, much of modern technology developed without any scientific input whatever, and there are many examples of entire sciences arising from earlier technologies or developing in an effort to explain findings made by scientifically nave artisans. For example, gunnery led to ballistics; the steam engine, to thermodynamics; powered flight, to aerodynamics; primitive metalworking, to metallurgy; and communications, to radio astronomy. - Charles Susskind------4. how can deforestation cause flooding and climate change?Deforestation can cause flooding (or be an attributable factor) as trees intercept rainfall and absorb infiltrated water (lower groundwater tables). Therefore trees can reduce runoff and groundwater flows. If the land that is deforested is developed with impervious surfaces (such as roads) then the land's runoff and rate of runoff can greatly be increased too. Thus water that naturally would have infiltrated into the land instead now is directed to a central water source in minutes (when naturally may have taken hours, days or weeks). Water sensitive urban designs are being implemented now to avoid (or minimise) the risk of this within new developments. Flooding can be caused by the saturation of the soil (that is the groundwater table rises to the surface and then flooding starts to occur as the land can no longer infiltrate water). Trees are deep rooted and can assist in lowering water tables (e.g. in Western Australia forests were thinned to increase the runoff and groundwater flows into water reservoirs). Flooding can also be caused by increased runoff to waterways, and again deforestation may increase the volume and rate of water entering these waterways. In regards to global warming (climate change) trees (especially large forests) are natural carbon sinks (i.e. absorb carbon emissions). The loss of forests reduces the area of the carbon sinks, therefore with less absorption of carbon emissions more are within the atmosphere, thus exacerbating global warming. Also because trees store carbon in their woody tissue when deforestation occurs this carbon is typically released (unless the timber is turned into long-term products such as furniture, construction beams etc.). When deforestation occurs typically a burn is undertaken too (this releases further carbon). Lasted the land is typically turned into a carbon source (ag land, residential, industrial etc) so this leads to the land having a complete reverse from being a sink to be a source.------5. What are the main economic factors affecting Industry in the Czech republic for the last four years?Czech Republic has one of the largest industrial park in Europe and one the largest share of the industry toward entire GDP. This was already the case in the 19th century and survived the upheavals of the 20th century. During the past 20 years, industry went through deep structural changes, which decimated traditional textile, shoe, pulp, and furniture industry as the competition from China and East Asia increased. Secondary environment was always an issue, which was reason why heavy industry went to significant restructuring, especially chemical, iron, and energy production. Traditional machinery, car, electronic, polymer, plastic, glass industry modernized and expanded. Czech Republic together with Slovakia became primarily oriented on car production and car components. It produces about 20% of all European car parts, from engines to cables, components, and car electronics. This heavy dependency on the car industry is blessing and curse. Car industry generates the largest share of the economy and is a main export and employer. The main export markets are in Europe, both in Eurozone, and Eastern Europe. However, as the financial and economic crisis hit Europe, so the slowdown from the Western Europe affected Czech Republic and its export industry. Since 2012, the country is in recession, where domestic demand is weak, export stagnates, and capital investment disappeared. Banking and financial sector is relatively healthy in Czech Republic, but country suffers with low productivity and chronic budget deficits. Since last year, economic crisis from southern Europe is affecting more countries, and Czech Republic feels the effect. Traditional markets like Hungary, Italy, Slovenia, and Romania are in deep recession, which is decimating export. Secondary, the capital outflow from the region since 2008 affects the investment, which further causes the lagging of the productivity behind the wealthiest countries in the world------6. how did people oppose/react to the invention of spinning jenny and watt steam engine?Most people saw the introduction of the spinning jenny with great awe as it created much more yarn than that produced by hand. However, James Hargreaves made an 8 spindle jenny , which could replace up to 8 people. When Hargreavesbuilt spinning jennys for Robert Peel, grand father of the Prime Minister, workers attacked Hargreaves home in 1768 and destroyed not only the machines but also furniture and windows. this forced Hargreaves to move away too Nottingham to continue to build new jennys. To make matters worse for Hargreaves, when he applied for a patent, other people were claiming it as theirs and Hargreaves had difficulties collecting royalties. By 1785, a new era of weaving began and the Industrial Revolution was underway, with industries moving from the home to large manufactories. The advent of the steam engine was not from Watts, but he certainly improved upon the Newcomen engine he had been working on. Watt had been developing his engines but it was not until 1775 that his first engine worked to his satisfaction. Watt however restricted further development of his engines and it was not until the expiration of his patents in 1802 that Trevithicks engine was developed and it was capable of being developed for transport use. Watt had developed his steam engine for industrial use in factories and mines, but Richard Trevithicks steam engine was small and powerful enough to be used for steam powered transport. This led to the development of the iron horse, the train, but led to reductions in use of real horses and their associated industries. Industries such as strappers, leather merchants, farriers and groomers etc. People liked the idea of the speed of rail transport and it led to an increase in heavy industry like steelworks to build railways, locomotives and lumberjacks for the sleepers required.

3 Fresh Ways to Breathe New Life into Old Furniture
Interior designer Sasha Bikoff suggests three ways to revive your antiques.By CHANTEL TATTOLI for Architectural Digest."Use your imagination -- you don't have to color in the lines," Sasha Bikoff says of redecorating. The New York-based interior designer known for her playful upholstery choices has a penchant for revamping midcentury Italian and French furniture with remnants of luxe fabrics from fashion houses such as Pucci, Dolce & Gabbana, Oscar de la Renta, and Chanel. Bikoff, whose projects recently outgrew her Tribeca basement, just opened an antiques showroom down the street that offers her own colorful riffs on Milo Baughman chairs and French Empire stools. Architectural Digest caught up with the revisionist thinker for tips on how, as she puts it, "to wake up oldies but goodies."Photo: Patrick ClineReupholster the tired. Upholstery is a sure way to transform an old hand into a statement, says Bikoff. Do not be afraid to opt for fabrics with a lot of personality. To create harmony, study the shape of the piece and pick a print that mimics its design, or recover a classic with a strikingly modern print to make it pop. "If purple is your favorite color, you should have a purple piece your house," she adds.Photo: Patrick Cline Overdye the rug. Send a large-format rug to a good dyer for brilliant recoloring. Overdye antique rugs--Bikoff is partial to Chinese Deco carpets--in fresh colors such as marigold, cerulean, and peridot. Gentle tie-dyeing techniques can also produce wonderfully vivifying results. Reset the stage for an otherwise muted room, or match a rug to a vignette of furniture to create a whole new world.Photo: Patrick ClineReshuffle the mix. Sometimes, introducing one or two pieces into unexpected company changes everything. Move an 18th-century love seat into a room with side tables from Dorothy Draper's Hollywood Regency moment, or scoot a balloon-back chair up to a Memphis Milano desk. "The magic is in the mingling," Bikoff says. "It's like a conversation between some unique personalities."More from Architectural Digest:Inside Jennifer Aniston's Gorgeous Beverly Hills HomeTour Sarah Jessica Parker's Epic East Village Townhouse30 Incredible Classic White Kitchens10 Unbelievable Dream ClosetsGisele Bündchen and Tom Brady's Incredible L.A.

Subscription Sofa? Rental Startup Feather Raises $12 Million to Fight 'fast Furniture'
Today furniture subscription startupFeatherannounced their expansion into two new markets, Los Angeles and Orange County California after securing $12 million in funding. The Series A was led by Spark Capital and had participation from Kleiner Perkins, Bain Capital Ventures, Y Combinator, PJC, Fuel Capital and Scott Belsky, among others. Spark Capital has helped fund other startups in the furniture industry including Wayfair, 1stdibs, and Everything But The House.This brings Feather's total funding to $16 million. The company plans to use this investment to become a leader in reverse logistics as well as increase headcount.A Greener Business ModelFeather launched in 2017 in the New York City market by three-time startup founder and Y Combinator alum, Jay Reno. Renodeveloped this business model to provide a solution to the problemscaused by the rise of "fast furniture." Much like fast fashion, fast furniture has a trendy look and low cost, but it isn't designed tobe used for the long haul. While some piecesarea great way to stay within a budget, especially for occasionalfurniture like side tables and accent chairs-there is a tendency togo overboard. While cheap clothing isn't generally purchased out of necessity, everyone needs a sofa.Then factor in the statistic that millennialsmove more than twelve timesbefore purchasing a home. So,home furnishingsare being purchased and disposed of at a higher rate than in previous generations. It's no surprisethat9.7 million tons of furnitureend up in landfills every year. Particularly for this demographic, rental subscriptions like Featherare a more environmentally friendly and cost-effective way to furnish a home.Furniture Rental 2.0New furniture subscription services, like competitorFernisharen'tentirely different fromthe older rental models such asRent-A-Center, albeit with farsuperiorbranding and products. Feather is targeting a different market entirely. Furniture rental has traditionallyappealed to two very different demographics-real estate professionals (for staging purposes) and low-income populations. Feather subscribers can buy furniture, but they're choosing to rent instead because it is simply a smarter option for them.A Millenial SolutionAccording to Reno, Feather's subscribers are in the stage after graduating from college before they purchase their first home, between the ages of 18-35 with a 50/50 split between men and women. "Their lives are often changing-jobs, relationships, cities, and as a result change apartments every one to two years," he says. "They are drawn to customized, on-demand services that give them access to items without bearing the burden of ownership to make this more transient life possible."Feather also sets itself apart because their inventory isfrom the stores where their customers would normally be purchasing from.They currently offer 150 different pieces from retailers West Elm and Pottery Barn, who they have exclusive partnerships with as well as other popular brandssuch as Casper, Leesa, and Joybird.Cost EffectivenessFeather'ssubscription model has two tiers, members and non-members. Members pay $19 per month for an annual membership "Members get a significantly discounted monthly subscription price on their furniture pieces, which equates to 50% of retail after one year of their membership," explains Reno.The startup also has a rent to own model built in, allowing subscribers to apply the amount they've already paid towards renting the itemto the cost of purchase. They can also change out theirfurniture for a charge of $99 per trip, with one free change annually for members. Delivery and assembly are also free, which is an added cost that many people forget to add on to the price of owning furniture.But not all of Feather's subscribers are frequent movers. A portion of their business comes from people who rent out spare rooms in their home or have properties used as short term rentals through Home Away, VRBO, Airbnb, etc. Using Feather allows them to furnish these spaces in a more stylish and cost-effective way. However, saysReno "It's important to note that the overwhelming majority of our customers are using our furniture in their primary residence."Looking AheadAs for future expansion, the brand is focusing on its new markets for now, but Reno says not to count it out. "We haven't shared any public plans for additional expansion, however, we believe Feather offers a service that city dwellers across the country and world can use to furnish their homes without spending a fortune or hurting the planet in the process."
