European nations, including the UK, are making a grave accounting error that will result in the emissions of more planet-warming greenhouse gases, according to a new report from an independent London think tank. By counting the burning of wood pellets from felled forests in the U.S., Canada and Russia as a "renewable" or "sustainable" form of energy, nations in the European Union are masking their full impact on the environment, the report warns. The study , from Chatham House, comes as European officials debate policies that favor particular energy sources, including biomass energy such as wood pellets, as a way to cut planet-warming carbon dioxide.

Yemeni security officials say a suicide bomber killed at least eight soldiers Friday at a security base in the southern city of Zinjibar. The bomber, disguised as a driver delivering a load of wood, blew up his vehicle at the gate of the Yemeni military base after failing to get inside. Heavy gunfire ensued as other assailants tried to enter the base, injuring 10 others. There was no immediate claim of responsibility, but a military source said al-Qaida has carried out similar attacks in the area. Southern Yemen has been the target of a series of suicide bombings by extremist groups as the Yemeni government has failed to restore security after pushing Houthi Shi'ite militias and allied forces out of the south in 2015.

Swiss design studio Diiis Designstudio has switched gears a bit since we last saw them two years ago with their convertible backpack, Manta . Now, they're unveiling a few new designs but this time on the furniture and home furnishings front. Each of their products serves a basic function with added details that display clever twists. GITO / HATO are a pair of side tables that are easily put together with a simple screw system. The two wooden tabletops have a metal plate embedded allowing you to set a drink down without having to worry about it leaving a ring on the wood. HAWU is a bookshelf or a bar similar to the above tables. A metal frame holds three wooden shelves, where you get to choose between a half circle or a metal angle. The angle becomes a bookstand to help contain your stuff on the shelf, while also fastening it to the stand. S IM / SALA / BIM are a trio of glass vases where you have the flexibility of displaying a single stem or an entire bouquet with the help of the mirrored plates.

Nice open floor, lots of glass and wood create an modern and charming place. Take a look. And make sure to check out BIO-architects website for further information about this and other inspiring projects. See you next week. :) The house was designed and produced for a young couple who went to live in the suburbs of Moscow on Pirogovo lake. A year before, in 2015, they asked us for a compact 40m2 DublDom house, and after a successful experience of its winter installation, the customers got ready for a bigger one for the whole family, children and staff. None of the standard models was suitable for the site, so we made an individual project on the basis of DublDom of second edition. Most of the individual decisions are based on a simple technology and inexpensive materials, so we managed to follow one of the basic principles of DublDom company - quality of architecture at an affordable pricing.

We all need somewhere to store our clothing, but dressers do not come cheap. New solid wood options will run you well over $500 (though usually twice that price!), so you're likely to be buying MDF, veneered pieces at a lower price point. Of course, you can always dig up quality secondhand pieces at your local thrift store (or online in our Marketplace ), but if new, stylish and affordable is what you're after, check out 11 of our favorites under $400.

We spent weeks building and preparing different stations though our property, all aimed at scaring the neighborhood kids. He taught me how to turn a bowl of grapes into a pile of eyeballs and a stack of wood into a guillotine. I think it was here that I learned that, with a little imagination and some creativity, you can shape the world around you. I try to continue the tradition every year in the form of an annual Halloween party. I spend the months leading up to it making decorations and building props. It allows me the opportunity to get a little dirty and build something with my hands. I am able to flex some different creative muscles and look at the world a little differently.

Sometimes despite impracticality, safety, failure, and general good sense one has an urge to see a project through for the sake of it. When you're sick of buttering your toast every morning, you might take a leaf out of Rick Sandc ahem, [William Osman]'s book and build a toast-bot to take care of the task for you . [Osman] opting for nail the overkill quotient is using a reciprocating saw motor to hold the butter while the toast moves underneath the apparatus on a platform controlled by a linear stepper motor. The frame and mounts for Toast-Bot were cut out of wood on his home-built laser cutter affectionately named Retina Smelter 9000 and assembled after some frustration and application of zip-ties. The final result DOES butter toast, but well see for yourself. Despite working with only margerine-al (sorry!) success from a practical standpoint equally inclined to shred or butter we are inclined to chalk this up as a win regardless.

Progressive activists similarly capitalized on generous support from pharmaceutical manufacturers and nonprofits such as Atlantic Philanthropies and the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation during the heated debate to pass Obamacare. Nearly eight years later, most of the big donors have moved on, leaving health law defenders to make do with paltry budgets. Levin said most of the 7,000 donations the Indivisible Project has received come from small dollardonors who pony up about $50. Padilla said the sum is “just enough to keep us going.” “We have gotten enough to keep us going another three or four months,” said Padilla, who also works on health issues for the National Immigration Law Center. “There’s never enough money in the health care advocacy community,” said Ethan Rome, who led Health Care for America Now during the run up to pass Obamacare and is trying to revive it.
