What an architect actually do ?

I think the general public thinks that architects are actually engineers or that the same thing. And they're not. and that i just want to actually briefly touch on what an architect does, what their role is.

If you would like to be one what that appears like. All right, so first I'm gonna say I feel there are a few differing types of architects.

consider myself, there are technical architects who are specialized at understanding how things go together, like building details, all the systems that enter a building and therefore the technical aspects of a building, then business architects - people that are specialized at understanding how a business is operated, but might not be that that well tuned when it involves designing or the technical aspects.

So if you're brooding about hiring an architect otherwise you want to become an architect just keep that in your mind, that there is not only one track that you simply need to be. therefore the primary role of an architect is what i'd call a "conductor of buildings' '. i feel once I consider music and that i feel like a conductor, the conductor knows what all of the instruments should be playing, but might not have the talents to play every single instrument within the symphony or no matter the band or whatever it's . and that is really what an architect does: they concentrate on how they're going to assemble these instruments together to make something that basically makes plenty of sense.


Now an architect, i might say, may be a jack-of-all-trades during a lot of the way .
It's Important for an architect to know tons about the HVAC, the plumbing, the electrical, the small print , like how the Assembly's carpentry, tilework. Basically all of the trades literally jack-of-all-trades is that the architect's job on top of understanding code, understanding how a project goes through, coordinating with a client, ensuring that they understand the process and what's happening, and serving as a middleman between the client and therefore the contractor.


To sort of, like break things down, so as that everyone is on the same page. So there's
parts of engineering that an architect does, but the architect doesn't necessarily do the structural engineering for the building. Architects are able to do that , but i might say that the bulk of architects unless they're more towards that technical side that I wont to be talking about, don't do this because it's a liability. They'll hire somebody else and that they do this with just about everything that they are doing . They hire sub consultants that then advise them on what they ought to do. which so a structural engineer, a engineer , engineer - those sort of engineers and designers will we'll hire to be a neighborhood of their team then the architect becomes the conductor, ensuring that each one of these parts of the team is sensible , so it is the architects
you have to know everything that's going into a building and make it work essentially. And Make it beautiful.


That's really, I think, what the architect does

it is the architect's job to verify that each one of those things coming together, add up for what the client wants in terms of an aesthetic appearance. then when construction starts to form sure that the contractor whoever's
building the project is adhering to what the architect is drawn.

The "design intent" is what it's called. therefore the drawings communicate the design intent to the contractor then the contractor is supposed to make thereto design intent, but many things get missed in drawings or even can get overlooked, is probably a far better thanks to put it and it is the architect's job to be onsite, to be ready to means various things maybe the architect is looking at. I mean, what percentage times have you ever read a book, an entire page of or a hope for instance an entire chapter of a book and you do not remember all the small print . is actually what happens when a contractor takes it on employment . It's their job to know all that stuff, but sometimes things get missed therefore the architect is there to mention "hey, this is often really important, we'd like to form sure this gets hit". So, this certain requirement is met.

So, that's really i feel the only because of describe what an architect does, is do the design , confirm that everything is wise from a functional and programmatic point of view then to coordinate all the sub consultants that are putting their stuff inside the building, all the things that make the building work, confirm that which will be incorporated and doesn't detract from the beauty of the architecture and really confirm that it works. So hopefully it's helped shed some light on what an architect does for you.

Ljubljana - The Capital of Slovenia
Ok guys, a lot of you know I am from Slovenia, and since the country is not widely famous, I decided to write a card to kind of present it to you. So, I hope you will like my quick presentation of a capital of Slovenia, and also a place where I spent most of my time, because of studying. Ljubljana has no world-famous attractions, which is just great: there's no need to hop from one place to another, taking photos and crossing the items on your checklist. You have all the time to stroll around and enjoy the city itself. In the summer, its center hosts a number of city sponsored events, from children workshops and public playgrounds on the streets that get closed for traffic for the occasion, to Trnfest's off-beat street performances and musical events of all genres. In autumn it shows its academic face as it fills again by students of the state's largest university to whom the city owes much of its youthful character. Cold December days are warmed by thousand of lights, the new year's decoration conceived by local artists, and by food and drinks sold from street stands on the banks of Ljubljanica river. After surviving the boring gray remaining of winter, the city erupts again with spring flowers planted on its streets and crossroads. Located at the middle of a trade route between the northern Adriatic Sea and the Danube region, it was the historical capital ofCarniola, a Slovene-inhabited part of Austria-Hungary, and it has been the cultural, educational, economic, political, and administrative center of independent Slovenia since 1991. Ljubljana ("lyoob-lyAH-nah") is a charming city full of artists, museums, and galleries. With a population of 300,000, it is one of the smallest capital cities in Europe. The main language of the city is unsurprisingly Slovenian. Bosnian/Croatian/Serbian is generally understood by most people and frequently spoken fluently by adults, especially those over the age of 40. Most of citizens speak at least some English, many, especially those under age of 30, speak it fluently. It's also worth trying any major European language you speak as you just might be understood. Triple Bridge (Tromostovje), designed by Jože Plečnik, consists of three separate picturesque bridges located next to one another. The neighboring Prešeren square with the statue of Slovenian greatest poet France Prešeren is the central location of downtown Ljubljana and a common meeting point. Across Ljubljanica to the left is Open Market and the Dragon Bridge. Squeezed between the castle hill and Ljubljanica river is the old town with two squares, Mestni trg (City square) with the Robba fountain and the city hall behind it, and, further on, Gornji trg (Upper square). Well preserved medieval buildings now house local designer shops, and several popular cafes and restaurants. Although they may look creepy, the perfectly safe narrow lanes lead to charming little squares and buildings. Zmajski Most (Dragon Bridge), completed in 1901, designed by Croatian Jurij Zainovich. It is guarded by four detailed dragon statues from the city's coat-of-arms. You have to be careful around the Dragon Bridge area, as it is on a major busy road just outside the pedestrian zone and near misses (and worse) between inattentive tourists and traffic are common. Ljubljana Castle - You can catch the "tourist train" from the Triple Bridge to the castle, or walk up the (quite steep) hill to the castle. The tower has magnificent views all over the city. You can also see the Sava River and Kamnik Alps in the distance. Btw, I live just under the castle, so 10 minutes walk to to top. Metelkova City - A self-declared autonomous culture place to gather for alternative artists, many subcultures and youth. What used to be a military barracks is now full of underground artists, bars and nightclubs. Metelkova can get crowded on Fridays and Saturdays. This is an awesome place to party. Tivoli Park is the main city park. You can sit down on a park bench and enjoy the sun. There is also a childern's playground and a lot of paths to walk. Ljubljana Zoo is considered one of the most beautiful Zoos of Europe. I don't this so, tho. Ljubljana Botanic Garden is the oldest Slovene cultural, scientific and educational institution. It was founded in 1810, the time of the Illyrian Provinces, as a garden of native flora and a section of the Central School (École Centrale). In the garden is also tropical glasshouse. So, this is a quick intrudaction to the Capital city of Slovenia, Ljubljana. It is a city worth visiting. It is suitable for younger and older generations. It is quite small (tho, the biggest city of Slovenia), so everything is reachable by your feet. We don't get a lot of famous people, like bands and singers here, because we are so small, tho Paris Hilton did came to Slovenia, but it was by mistake haha. I hope you like this card, I would be really happy if you like it, clip it and comment it, because I want people to see and get to know Ljubljana. And if you want it, I can post pictures and write about other beautiful, even more greeny places of Slovenia, I know @TerrecaRiley would love it! And if you guys (@marshalledgar @nicolejb @alywoah @onesmile @2littlelegs @allischaaff @NixonWoman @skee292 @shannonl5 @danidee @LauraFisher @buddyesd @LizArnone ...) every find yourself in Europe, somewhere near me, you are more than welcome to come and visit. We'll do some cocktails!
The Works of Dale Chihuly The Atlantis Collection
ABOVE - A detail of "The Crystal Gate" installation in the Atlantis Resort, Nassau, The Bahamas. Dale Chihuly is a blown glass designer/sculptor whose works are considered unique to the field of blown glass, "moving it into the realm of large-scale sculpture". His works are legendary in the realm of art glass and he is considered a modern master through his mixing of traditional glass blowing techniques (learned in Venice Italy) and new techniques he’s developed to create works of mind-blowing intricacy and scale. Since a serious car accident in 1976 left him blinded in one eye and a body surfing accident in 1979 left him unable to hold the glass blowing pipe. He has since hired others to do the manual labor in bringing his designs to life. He calls himself “more of a choreographer than a dancer… more of a supervisor than a participant… more a director than an actor.” His large installations are on display in permanent collections all over the world, including in the United States, Canada, England, Singapore, the United Arab Emirates, Kuwait, and Nassau, the Bahamas at the Atlantis Resort. ABOVE - A detail of "The Crystal Gate" installation in the Atlantis Resort, Nassau, The Bahamas. The challenges in shooting such amazing works of art are many: SCALE - These massive installations are so large and complex that to capture the truly amazing detail and unique beauty of each you really need to shoot close-up images. The scale is then lost. But to shoot wide to establish each work in the environment they were places (designed for), you loose the finer details that make these works so awe inspiring. I knew when I was booked to shoot a corporate event in the Atlantis that the four large Chihuly installations were top of my list for my own "must shoot" items for the trip. I'd seen wide photo after wide photo and once on site and standing in amazement at their complexity and detail I decided to shoot long and tight - opting to not focus on scale so much as detail but knowing that certain angles would convey the size of their settings and therefore express their monumental size. LOCATION - These works of art are the show pieces of the busiest part of the resort, the casino. There isn't a time day or night that these works of art are not surrounded by people. Having the time to set up a shot and take it would be difficult. LOCATION - Because photography in the casino proper is not allowed, I was limited to the angles I could select. This meant going for my 300mm f/2.8 lens - large, heavy, and in need of some sort of support (i.e. tripod or monopod). It wasn't going to be possible to stop in a busy walkway and set up a tripod - so I decided to experiment with hand-held shots. LOCATION - Again, because of the location I couldn't increase shutter speed with the use of a speedlight. Flash photography was strictly prohibited inside the resort. The areas these installations occupied were dimly lit, which worked to the advantage of their display (since they are all internally lit), but with large lenses you have the hand-held rule of photography - if you don't want blur from the lens shaking you must shoot the second equivalent of the total focal length of the lens. Meaning I had to shoot at 1/350 second or higher to keep from having shake/blur in the images from holding that massive lens hand-held. I adjusted ISO to compensate and I used anything I could to steady my body/arms as I hoisted 12lbs of camera and lens up to get my shots. ABOVE -At the main entrance of the Atlantis Casino, "The Crystal Gate" installation stands 18 feet tall. Made of individual crystal glass shafts (3,100 to be exact), it is an amazing work of beauty as well as being a feat of design and engineering. Weighing over 30,000 pounds, it simply is an astoundingly beautiful and complex sculpture. Chihuly Atlantis Exhibits – Dale Chihuly was commissioned by the owner and builder of The Atlantis to make four grand statement works for the casino. Each is insured for over a million US dollars, they are all uniquely individual yet collectively appropriate for the design and theme of the Atlantis's main casino. The Crystal Gate - The Crystal Gate is a glittering tower of crystal soaring nearly 20 feet into the air at the entrance to the Atlantis Casino weighing 30,000 pounds and is made of 3,100 hand-blown crystals. It is the grand statement piece as you enter the casino – a marvel of crystal shapes and forms. It was by far my favorite piece, the pure scale and ambition of it spoke to me. I took dozens of photos of it and each angle reveals a new character and symmetry. ABOVE - The Temple of the Moon rests atop a large elevated platform. It sits opposite the casino from The Temple of the Sun. Between the two in the center of the room, suspended from the ceiling, is the Seaform Chandelier. Temple of the Moon & The Temple of the Sun - The challenge was to bring beauty to paradise -- and the Sun and Moon. Chihuly was commissioned to make dazzling yet approachable sculpture for the new Atlantis Resort Hotel on Paradise Island in the Bahamas. SPECIAL NOTE - Having the ability to step OUTSIDE the casino and shoot a photo such as the one above is one of the many reasons why I will ALWAYS travel with a super-telephoto lens. Having a 300, 400, 500, or 600mm lens available makes shots like the one above a reality. ABOVE - The Temple of the Moon – Each of the surface "plates" of the Temple of the Moon in itself is an amazing work of art. Cobalt blue mixes with silverish white and translucent blues to create a soothing and symmetrical opposite to the Temple of the Sun across the casino. “I knew I could create the sun very successfully, but the moon would have to somehow be blown and constructed in an entirely original way. I knew it would be difficult and force me to make something new.” ~ Dale Chihuly Beautifully rendered relief paintings of the twelve signs of the zodiac circle the Sun and Moon installations. BELOW - The dynamic and explosive colors and design of the Temple of the Sun are indeed a striking contrast to the relaxing and calming coolness of the Temple of the Moon. Temple of the Sun – The Temple of the Sun is a giant ball of flame-like tentacles of yellow, orange, and red elements radiating from its globe. It resembles a fearsome underwater creature of beauty and mystery while at the same time it could also easily be said that it is a representation of the violence and danger that reaches out from the center of every star into space. The Temple of the Sun has more than 2,300 yellow, orange, and red elements radiating from a fiery globe atop a replica of a Mayan temple. AND THEN THERE WAS THE SEA - BELOW - In the center of the room, caught between the two extremes of the sun and moon rests the Seaform Chandelier. The Seaform Chandelier – Featuring 900 unique hand blown elements depicting a wide assortment of ocean life in abstract form; this stunning 12ft diameter glass sculpture is located in the center of the Bacarat Lounge within sight of the two massive “Temple” sculptures. It features a number of instantly recognizable ocean shapes such starfish and then flows into shapes reminiscent of dolphins and other aquatic life. It is also an interesting "buffer" between the two extremes of the Temples. There are hints of gold and reds found in the Temple of the Sun, and cooler whites and bluish grey found in the Temple of the Moon. BELOW - In and around the casino are numerous smaller Chihuly works known as Macchia Bowls. Macchia Bowls - Derived from the Latin macula, the Italian word “macchia” connotes simply a stain or a spot, but it has a much richer range of meaning. Since the Renaissance, macchia has been associated with a sketchy way of applying the initial color to a drawing or painting. Particularly appropriate for the late style of the Venetian painter Titian, the word characterizes his emphasis on brushwork and summary treatment of form. In the seventeenth century, macchia designated the special quality of improvisational sketches that appear to be nature’s miraculous creation rather than mere human work. When Chihuly appropriates the term “Macchia” for his series, he gives back to the word some of its traditional meanings, particularly the emphasis on spontaneity, on artistic collaboration with technique rather than mere control of it. There is an undeniable sense of continuity and purpose to the master works on display at the Atlantis. Each piece although completely unique in design, shape, and color, flows into the next as a collective series should. Each alone is breathtaking and awe inspiring; but together they are an experience. The Atlantis is a destination without question, but the entire island of Nassau offers a unique treasure of culture and history that should not be missed if you ever have the chance to visit. For me, the chance to experience these beautiful installations in person and then be challenged in attempting to capture their beautify in photographs was one of the many highlights of my trip. © Copyright 2011-2015, Jon Patrick Hyde, All Rights Reserved.

House exchange is an excellent way to enjoy family holidays on a limited budget. The cost of Accommodations is usually the most significant chunk of any vacation spending. So, the cutting costs on this considerable expense can unlock doors of possibilities.  The potential savings allow you to spend more money on sightseeing, food, entertainment, and shopping at a vacation destination. But, before you finish your home exchange deal, it is imperative to know the optimum way to communicate with your exchange partner. Clear All Your Doubts & Queries Right Away Once you’ve received a query or someone has replied to your request, the next step is to talk to your potential home exchange partner. It’s best to clear all your questions and eliminate all doubt before you go ahead with the swapping deal. Inquire about the amenities in the house, such as the number of bedrooms and bathrooms, the configurations of beds, Internet connectivity, LED Screen, patio garden, or pool. If you’re traveling with kids, make sure you talk about the things to do and see in the proximity that is kid-friendly.  When asking queries have realistic expectations. Don’t expect their house to be as perfect as your home, and you may not have all the facilities. Don’t feel timid about asking any type of questions, like how are the neighbors, where are the most convenient dry cleaner, etc. What’s important is to be open and transparent with our swapper.

How to Make Katsu Curry (カツカレー), Japan's Cutlet & Curry Dish (Vegan Option)
Every so often, this is one of those plates I get a serious craving for. I always think that katsu cutlets tend to be a little too dry and that simple curry rice plates are a little bit boring, so when I'm able to order them together, I get really excited. They really balance each other out! Traditionally, katsu curry is made with chicken, beef, or pork, but you can customize this however you would want. For example, I have seen people sub the meat out for thick breaded cuts of eggplant or Portobello mushroom for an equally satisfying vegetarian dish. Katsu Curry (Makes 4 servings) INGREDIENTS: To Make the Katsu (Meat Version) - 4 pork loin chops, chicken breast, or thin steaks (about 1" thick, no bones) Salt & pepper, to taste 1/2 cup flour 1 - 2 eggs 1 cup panko or bread crumbs Oil for deep frying To Make the Katsu (Vegan/Vegetarian Version) - 4 1" thick slices of eggplant, 4 portobello caps, or 4 store-bought seitan-based cutlets (I would recommend trying Gardein's Chick'n Scallopini - thawed - for this dish.) Salt & pepper, to taste 1/2 cup flour 1 - 2 egg replacements (Ener-G Egg Replacer woould be good for this recipe.) 1 cup panko or bread crumbs Oil for frying To Make the Curry - 2 yellow onions 2 carrots 3 potatoes 1 tablespoons oil 3 1/2 cups water 1 box curry sauce mix (approximately 4 ounces) 4 cups of cooked white rice DIRECTIONS: 1) To make the katsu, make small cuts all over your cutlet of choice with tip of knife. Sprinkle salt and pepper on both sides. Coat it with flour, dip in eggs (or egg replacement), then cover with bread crumbs. 2) Heat deep frying oil to 350 F, and deep fry crumb-covered cutlet. (You can check the temperature by dropping a bread crumb. If it comes up to the oil surface right after it's dropped, it's good.) 3) Fry until color turns golden brown and cutlet floats in the oil, about 5-8 minutes, turning once or twice. Set the meat on a cooling rack for a minute. Cut into 5-6 pieces. 4) To make the curry, cut vegetables into bite size pieces. Heat oil and fry onions for 8 minutes. Add carrots and potatoes. Add water to the pot. After it boils, remove from heat and add curry sauce mix. Stir well so the pieces of the mix dissolve. Let it simmer for 10 - 15 minutes (cook longer if you'd like it thicker). If you'd like to add the optional curry powder, stir it in just before serving. 5) Put about a cup of rice on each plate, then place a katsu over the rice. Finally, generously pour curry over it. Serve while still warm.
Why Do You Have To Wait 10 Days Between Driving Tests?
A practical driving test is the last step to get a driving license. But it is also a very difficult and challenging step because, in this step, the examiners observe your skills very carefully, and a small mistake may lead you toward failure. Today I am going to share my practical driving test cancellation experience with you. When I started learning to drive, my father was there to teach me. But due to his office and work, he didn't have enough time to teach me. We get up early in the morning and go to the racing ground. My father gave me the keys and asked me to drive. He always told me the right way to drive, and when I performed something wrong, he taught me like a professional instructor. But due to the office work, he has to go early in the morning, and I have very less time to learn new things. After some time, my father asked me to submit the request to get the driving test license. I don't have any idea or previous experience to do that, so I asked my father for help. We go to a net cafe and opened the Dvsa website with the help of the internet. There are many forums, and we have to fill all of them. They asked to give the basic personal information like; provisional number, name, father's name, address, etc. After giving all these things, they asked to give the bank account number to pay the applying fee. After giving the application fee, I received a confirmation mail with the mentioned date of my driving test. My Experience Of Driving Test: First, I have to go for the theory test, and I passed the test with a good score. There are many problems, and hard questions are there, but I solve all of them and pass my theory driving test. This builds my confidence, and unfortunately, my confidence turns into overconfidence very soon. After passing the theory driving test, I started thinking that the practical driving test will also be very easy, and I don't need to practice more. My father asked me for the practice, but I refused them all the time by saying, "it is very easy for me to pass the practical driving test without practising". and after some days, the date of my practical test arrives, and I come to my center with full aggression and overconfidence. My examiner took a look at me and then sat with me in the car. I performed very well but also made some minor but important mistakes that led me toward failure. This is very heartbroken, and then I start looking to find driving test cancellations to perform the practical test again. With the help of a website, "Test Swap," I found the cancellation very soon and then again performed the test after 10 days. Remember, don't be in a rush; if you fail your test, you should have to wait for at least 10 days to clear your mistakes and learn them very well to perform them rightly during your practical test. After 10 days, I performed my test again and passed it very well. My experience with Test Swap: If you also fail the practical driving test, don't panic! Apply for your driving test again and then find driving cancellations to perform it earlier. I suggest you find driving test cancellations by Test Swap because they are very trusty, and I have experience of using the services of Test Swap. I highly recommend everyone who fails their practical driving test to use the great and excellent services of Test Swap to find driving test cancellations.

Difference between Shop Drawings and As Built Drawings
Execution of project cannot start unless the blueprints of the structure or building are in place. The designing stage of any construction project holds immense importance as it lays the foundation for effective project execution. Throughout the construction process there are various construction drawings prepared, each of them serves different purpose and possess their own unique features. These design drawings provide a glimpse of the actual state of construction process during various stages of project lifecycle. Shop Drawings and As Built Drawings are crucial in construction process and are created to accomplish different goals. In this article, we will understand both of these drawings and how are they different from each other. Shop Drawings Shop Drawings, also known as fabrication drawings are detailed representation of design intent. These drawings are generally utilized by fabricators, contractors, manufacturers, suppliers etc. in regards to manufacturing, assembling, and installation of pre-fabricated components of a building or structure. A few examples of the same are; Elevators, windows, trusses, MEP components such as HVAC ducts, plumbing pipes etc. The style of these drawings is very different from architect’s drawing as these are extremely detailed, having instructions/notations for installation, dimensions and materials needed. Shop Drawings usually include the following information: · Dimensions · Applicable fabrication standards · Details needed for erection and installation · Plans, elevations, views, sections, and information required for installation of pre-fabricated elements Shop Drawings are essential because of the following reasons: · Structural shop drawings provide essential information to fabricator in great detail to make sure that all the components used in fabrication are sound structurally. It also ensures that there is no compromise made with safety & standards are adhered to. · MEP Shop Drawing Services can be used to create MEP drawings which provide information regarding HVAC, electrical, plumbing and fire-protection components of a building. This is used not just for fabrication, installation and assembly but can also aid facility managers for carrying out quick repairs by pinpointing the location of a faulty component. · It brings down fabrication rework considerably by providing accurate and detailed information pertaining to the kind of materials to be used, the dimensions etc. about fabricated components and early detection of clashes. · Helps in clear communication between architect, designer, client and fabricator. · Essential in expediting the timeline of construction by ensuring seamless flow of fabrication process. As Built Drawings: As built drawings also known as Record Drawings or Red Line Drawings are revised versions/sets of drawings created after the completion of construction project. These drawings are prepared by contractors & subcontractors to compare the final completed version of the structure or the building with that of what was originally planned. Thus, these drawings provide a final blueprint of finished structure and the area surrounding it. During any construction project there are various times when deviations are to be made from what was planned initially. As Built Services can also be used to keep a track of the changes made throughout the project lifecycle and records them to reflect the actual construction with exact dimensions, location and geometry of the built structure or building. As built drawings generally include the following information: · Modifications in designs · Alterations done in shop drawings · Geometry, dimensions, area etc. · Deviations from initial designs Importance of As Built Drawings · It reflects the actual constructed state of the building and not just the conceived idea. · Time and cost saving, as no resources are wasted in the maintenance and operation processes to locate, recognize, installation and maintenance, as all the information is reflected in documented history of building. · It provides room for safety as the detailed plans show the areas where safety parameters may be needed, and how can they be installed. · They are helpful during renovation or refurbishment of the building as it contains the history of building and all the primary and essential information which can expedite the process. Conclusion: During any construction process, accuracy is essential in order to prevent errors, and wastage of resources, such as time, money and manpower. Even though Shop Drawings and As Built Drawings are different from one another, both of them require the same level of precision in order to ensure a smooth on-site construction process.
Is Hotel From American Horror Story Real?
The fictional 'Hotel Cortez' on American Horror story was inspired by the real-life Cecil Hotel located in Los Angeles California, which was constructed back in 1924. The Cecil Hotel has grabbed media attention several times. The hotel is known for several suicides and murders. The hotel has actually changed its name to Stay on Main...maybe to rid of the spooky rep it has under its original name. *shudders* So how did they come up with the name 'Hotel Cortez' for the show? Well, the fictional hotel is named after Spanish conquistador Hernan Cortez and a giant portrait made entirely of metal depicts an image of the historical figure who caused the bloody fall of the Aztec Empire. (uproxx) Well then. As far as Cecil hotel that inspired the new season's location, a woman by the name of Elizabeth Short, nicknamed "The Black Dahlia" was the victim of a murder in 1947. She was found with her body completely severed in half at the waist. What's her connection to the hotel? That was one of the last places she was seen before her bloody death. A man by the name of Richard Ramirez was a frequent resident back in the 1980s. During 1985, he went on a series of murders. He was nicknamed as the "night stalker." He killed 13 people. Another murderer by the name of Jack Unterweger also stayed at the hotel during the 80s. He killed 3 prostitutes. Remember Elisa Lam? She was the woman who was found dead inside one of the water supply tanks on the hotel's roof. This was in February 2013. The surveillance video showed Lam acting strangely -- pressing multiple elevator buttons, and waving her arms wildly. Although Lam was though to have had bipolar disorder, many believed that paranormal activity was to blame. Despite the terrifying stories, the hotel actually looks kinda nice... The hotel lobby. Most of the hotel's guests are foreigners or international travellers who do not know about Hotel Cecil's unsettling history. Goodness knows I will NEVER stay at that hotel. Would you?

How to Decor Home to give it on Rent to Traveler?
This week we teased you all on social media and we're excited to show you how to adorn yourself with our home decor and our fall tour. This will be a DIY - filled tour of our home decor and decoration, complete with photos, videos, and more. During the tour, you will see how we have decorated for the fall, from our kitchen to our dining room, bathroom, living room to our bedroom. We changed the scenery on our prepared wooden table with some autumnal decorative touches, including a throw pillow and fake eucalyptus twigs (which can be found here and here). Our autumn dress is similar to last year, with amber tones reminiscent of the throw cushions and the not quite so eucalyptus branches, as well as a bit of red. We love the way the wreath can be seen from the inside out and immediately carried it to the living room, which borders our entrance. It is the first color our guests see on our front door wreaths upon arrival, and we love it! Our entrance is the entrance where our guests arrive and we want to keep it as close to the front door as possible, even if it is just a few meters from the door. If you don't have enough ghost sightings from the towers, know for the Natchez Ghost Tour, organized by Karla Brown. The house exchange is open for guided tours all year round and includes a tour of all the preserved buildings as well as numerous other historic buildings that are shown on the city map during the tour of the city. It is open on Saturday and Sunday from 10 am to 6 pm, and on Sunday and Monday from 1 pm to 5 pm. Karla Brown also offers several historic tours, such as the Natchez Historic District Tour and the National Historic Landmarks Tour. Most of the visitors Center offers you the opportunity to take a ride through the historic district and visit some of the city's historic buildings. After breakfast in the morning, head to New Orleans on a guided, authentic swamp boat tour that takes you through the mysterious bays and swamps infested with alligators and lined with moss-draped trees. After exploring nature, cross the road and head south on the Mississippi. Have breakfast, we follow the house decoration to the historic town. Then our last drive on a quiet country road out of the city leads you to some of the most beautiful houses in and around Natchez.
