Business could save £1bn through energy behaviour change

British companies could save as much as £1bn on their energy bills by changing their ‘energy behaviours’ rather than rely on technical solutions, according to Npower energy experts as reported in the Telegraph this week. Each company could save between 3-15pc, or an average saving of 9pc, the supplier added.

Npower Business Solutions, a division of the Big Six supplier, said that it has already helped customers to drive bills down by £26m after acquiring an energy management firm which specialises in company habits.

Npower snapped up the RUMM energy consultancy in April last year as part of the company’s plan to grow within the increasingly competitive business supply market.

A spokeswoman for the supplier said Npower is targeting total savings of £1bn for its energy customers by focusing on RUMM’s behavioural approach to energy saving for with their sophisticated energy management software and business energy reduction UK
gasEach company could save between 3-15pc, or an average saving of 9pc, the supplier added.

Npower’s Phil Griffiths said: “It often surprises businesses to find out that non-technical savings are usually greater than technical savings. Through learning about your energy habits, it is easy to make subtle, low-cost and effective changes to help keep down your energy bills. It’s already produced clear and proven benefits for firms, big and small, saving businesses we have worked with over £26m.”

The supplier refers to its behaviour analysts as “carbon psychologists” and says that the experts can design energy saving programmes by addressing employee energy habits to help them adopt more energy efficient ways of working.

A study from trade group Energy UK found that the business supply market has seen a consistent increase in competitiveness in recent years. Currently there are 24 suppliers active in the business market of which over a fifth joined the market last year.

Vaginal Massage Tantric Treatment for Couples 

Tantra in London is a growing trend among people where Eastern cultures and practices are being adopted to heal and strike a balance within life. Just like Yoga, Tantra is on the rise to bring in the ‘oomph’ factor especially in relationships. Little is known about the other benefits of Tantra apart from its mainstream perception, which is Tantra is sex and hidden pleasure. Many myths and misconceptions dock around Tantra taking away its true core purpose.

Tantra holds the key to connection – to create connection to your inner self which in return will allow you to create connection with others and your loved ones. Tantra’s goal is to heal past hurt and process of Tantra is to surpass hurt in order to attain happiness and bliss. Tantra is weaving of the spiritual body, emotional body and the physical body in order to connect to the divine source energy to attain a state of bliss and happiness. Therefore, I work as a meditator assisting the weaving by removing stagnant negative emotions and energy blocks and physical blocks stored as toxins in the body.

Having worked with over 3000 women from all over the world spanning across U.S, Europe, U.K and Asia and having recognized the dire need of healing therapy to reconstruct people, I took the initiative set up Tantric Journey School of Healing and Awakening (http://www.tantricjourney.com/about-tantric-journey/) to help people heal and teach the art of healing to anyone who wanted to become a healer. Tantric Journey School of Healing and Awakening teaches the pioneer engineered therapy called ‘Tantric Journey Bodywork’. Bodywork is an artisanship crafted with years of research, teachings and validations by masters of the art in order to apply the healing massage techniques that bring about Emotional Detox through Tantra and Tao Bodywork.

Tantra London is abundant but many do not hold the healing essence of the Tantra teaching as they are only intended for pleasure, but whereas the essence of Tantric vaginal massage is to heal and connect to higher source energy to live at optimum. This is done by me, acting as a mediator to our client to help the client to remove negative stagnant emotions in the cellular memory in the body’s cells that block the positive energy flow (positive emotions) that contribute to positive experiences.Yoni Massage

Tantric vaginal massage honors women and womanhood. It teaches women self-respect and the most precious jewel for a women is self –respect that brings about self-discipline, self-confidence and self-esteem and teaches her to create her own safe circle allowing experiences that only nourish her. The client is subjected to a well-planned procedure before the Tantric massage treatment.

At a comfortable pace between the practitioner (me) and the client in environment that is safe to the client, the client goes through talking therapy, body movements such as yoga, breath work, sounds such as mantras and eventually the Tantric massage treatment at her own pace.

Most importantly, I will meet the client where she is, accepting who she is with unconditional love and take her on the inner journey where ever she wants to go. Read more on the treatment here >http://www.tantricjourney.com/uncategorized/emotional-detox-tantra-tao-bodywork/ Tantric treatment for couples is beneficial in many ways as Tantra celebrates sexuality and sexual energy – the life force energy. Hence Tantra has been subjected to criticism and misconception.

To dispel the main myth about “Tantra is only about sex” it is good to know some Tantric sex practices do not have any physical contact of genitals. It is good to keep in mind the fundamental ideology of Tantric sex is about cultivating sexual energy within yourself to have a deeper understanding of yourself in order to connect to your partner who would do the same.

Therefore Tantric sex is about energetically connecting with you and your partner to forge a bond beyond a physical realm to bring about love, intimacy, passion and the most vital ingredient – trust. The practice of Tantric sex with copulation or without copulation can heal a relationship or heal one partner who houses both emotional and physical pain.

The practice of Tantric sex with your loved can open magical doors to your relationship as it is a form of sex therapy. Also to address the main concern and myth about “Tantric sex can entice appetites that can lead to orgies”, it is wise to know Tantra does not advocate in indulging uncontrollable sexual desires or orgies.

finding-the-female-g-spot-1

In fact, Tantra teaches us to control our sexual desires and channel it to a higher purpose – the higher purpose being love. Tantric sex is about being conscious of the person you are connecting with, asking permission to touch or kiss or express sexual desire in other ways. Tantra lovers take time to soul gaze where they connect with the essence of the person they are going to make love to by opening up all their chakras and communicating to create a safe platform so that the power of excitement can be transformed into love.

Therefore as we have been able to shed light into these myths we can deduce that Tantra and Tantric sex is beneficial to us – in a world where connectivity is mastered through technology there is sincere lack of human connection.

Tantric Journey Tantric treatment for couples aims to help women heal through vaginal massage therefore contributing less to the cycle of depression, violence, crimes, unexpected pregnancies, welfare, and women’s health with the use of Tantra in London. Out of suffering comes the strongest souls. And as Matt Kahn says, ‘True healing is the willingness to treat yourselves and others better than the past ever did’.  And the key to healing completely is Tantric Journey Emotional Detox through Tantra & Tao Bodywork where all negative feelings and issues are removed from its origin in order to cultivate positive feelings to build a life of nourishing experiences.

Emotional Detox through a Tantric & Tao manner brings the client body to a positive state at a biological level through positive cells for sound physical, emotional and psychological health.

March has been a busy month with celebrations all month round. Firstly Mother’s Day was celebrated in style this year with beautiful elegant window displays in honour of all the mothers who are no longer with us as well as the mothers who are. Some of  Lodge Brothers branches such as funeral directors Ashford decorated their windows using a pink-themed Mother’s Day display at the weekend .

One client brought in a card and was very grateful for having it included in the display in remembrance of her mum. The poem “My Mother Kept a Garden” was displayed in the window which has some lovely thoughts about the caring  and nurturing nature of mothers.

St Patrick’s Day was marked on the 17th March 2016 at funeral directors Feltham, traditionally, the day is celebrated by a visit to Church in the morning, followed by dancing and merriment when the  restrictions of Lent are lifted for one day! The display in the  window shows the Irish flag, a shamrock (hand  knitted by Pat) alongside a bottle of Guinness.

Easter is a time to celebrate with friends and family and a time to remember loved ones who have passed on. What better way to remember our loved ones than by doing something for members of the community. Sharing Easter in the community brightens so many people’s day especially the elderly. Lodge Brothers funeral directors Northolt have arranged an Easter Tea Party for the residents of local nursing homes in and around the various villages.

Find out what some of the other Lodge Brothers branches such as funeral directors Englefield Green have been up to recently  in the community.

Explore the latest design in retail architects London with dblo Associates, known for their leading edge in commercial designs.

Whether it’s to design shopping malls, grocery stores, hairdressers, offices dblo Associates have the professionalism and expertise required through their innovative team trained in building design.

Much consideration is taken for each individual project as the architect’s main focuses are usually accessibility and productivity. He or she must design with two groups in mind — the staff and clients. These two groups of people use the same space simultaneously, but for different purposes. Their needs, preferences, and attitudes regarding that space can greatly differ.

Retail architects Mayfair can also help a company establish a visual identity by using unique materials to design a retail space, such as adding hardwood floors where tiles are normally used. Some professionals give stores themes that capitalize on the business’ specialty. Others use colours in significant places, such as the roof, so that people can readily identify a particular store’s location.

With many years of experience in architecture, having completed hundreds of projects dblo Associates rank one of the best architects in London.

Spencer King from DIY Marquees offers excellent advice for those wanting to set up their own marquee company; be it buying a pop-up marquee or one of the hundreds of different marquee available. DIY Marquees not only offer Marquees they also sell many accessories such as lighting, heating and  flooring.

DIY Marquees

Nearly all professional marquee hire’s use diesel or gas powered heaters. When using one of these to heat a marquee personally I would always put a carbon monoxide tester in the marquee too. They’re cheap, easy to fit and give peace of mind to both you and the customer. Not only that it makes you look (even more) thorough and professional. All fumes from a diesel heater should be kept outside from the chimney but what if the wind blows it straight back towards the marquee?

L B Whites have a very useful heating app that’s worth looking at and illustrates why electric heaters are just not man enough for any serious size marquee.

Inputting a 6x12m commercial (3m apex height) marquee with a rise of 30 degrees C (they do metric, I can’t!) gives a requirement for approx 100,000BTU’s or 30KW of heating. Had we designed our marquees to have a higher apex not only would they be less wind resistant they would also require far more heating – the requirement goes up to 40KW.

The maximum an electric heater can supply is 3KW of heat. If you wanted to heat one of these marquees using electric heaters you would need a whopping 10-13 of them and a very large generator to power them all!

Stick to diesel (indirect) or gas (lbwhite) and fit a carbon monoxide detector.

QUICK AND EASY HOT CROSS BUN RECIPE

Ingredients

  • 225 g unsalted butter (at room temperature)
  • 200 g light muscovado sugar
  • 150 g ground almonds
  • 100 g buckwheat flour (see tip)
  • 1 teaspoon ground mixed spice
  • 1½ teaspoons gluten-free baking pow
  • ¼ teaspoon sea salt
  • 1 large orange
  • 3 large free-range eggs (at room temperature)
  • 175 g mixed dried fruit (ideally with candied orange in it)
  • 50 g dried cranberries
  • 1 eating apple (125g)
  • 100 g icing sugar , plus extra for dusitng
Method
Heat the oven to 180C/gas 4. Line two muffin trays with paper cases or squares of baking paper. In large bowl, beat the butter and sugar with an electric beater until pale and fluffy.

Combine the almonds, flour, mixed spice, baking powder and salt in
a bowl, then sift it on top of the creamed butter and sugar. Add the orange zest, 3 tablespoons of the juice and the eggs to the bowl as well. Beat everything together until you have a thick batter, then stir in the dried fruit, cranberries and apple.

Dollop the mixture into the muffin cases so they’re three-quarters full. Bake for 35 minutes, then turn down the heat to 160C/gas 3 and bake for
a further 20–25 minutes, until the muffins are well risen and golden, and a skewer inserted into the centre comes out clean. Leave to cool in the tin for 15 minutes, then remove to a rack to cool completely.

Gradually mix the icing sugar with 4–5 teaspoons of the orange juice to make a thick icing. Spoon into a piping bag with a round nozzle, or into a sandwich bag, snipping off one corner. Pipe crosses onto each muffin, dust with extra icing sugar and leave to set.Tips

Buckwheat, despite its name, is not related to wheat at all and is totally gluten-free. The flour has a light nuttiness. You’ll find it in most supermarkets and health food shops.
