The Wood house

The tree is a natural resource that gives us many useful things for life. Their presence not only contributes to the beauty of the world but also brings life to the organism. I am a nature lover, the feeling of being immersed with them, hearing the sound of the wind through the foliage, the song from the birds perched on the branches, the sound of fallen leaves when leaving the branch and the sound of rustling when someone swept the leaves away, they made my soul relax, purified, making my life full of energy. Because of that, it always makes me like and loves all the things made of wood. In my heart, I always cherished myself with a desire to live in a house made entirely of wood. So today I will introduce some of my favorite wood houses.

Interesting things from wood

It will be exciting things if you don’t know these things yet.

I.   One of the things I like most about wood is the variety of materials, colors, scents, sizes, and properties of them. There are billions of plants in the world, and part of them are plants capable of making wooden furniture as well as building houses.

Their advantages:
– There are beautiful grain marks, easy to dye, easy to decorate the surface.
– Isolated from temperature and electricity, good moisture prevention, small thermal expansion.
– It’s soft so you can use machines, tools like the best hand saw, etc. to saw, shave, drill, split with high speed in them but still with good strength.
– Easy to connect with nails, tenons, glue.
– Finally, it is durable with a long time
However, besides that, they also have disadvantage points, but with advanced technology and human intelligence, the disadvantages of wood are best overcome.

II.   You must have heard about feng shui furniture or feng shui wood bracelets. So this brings the second exciting thing about the wood. Wood developed from nature in thousands of years ago, no one knew why wood appeared, where did it come from, we only know that it has been on Earth since humans existed. Besides What humans see inside the tree apart from the advantages that are said, people also know that they have souls, this soul has existed for tens of thousands of years, it absorbs the essence of heaven and earth to live, it carries endless and powerful energy. Therefore, we consider wood as a raw material to make feng shui objects. A wooden feng shui bracelet will bring a new beginning with lots of luck and fortune. Also other sacred objects such as altars, or holy places like temples and pagodas, you will see everywhere carrying the breath of wood.
Another interesting story I know about the tree is that the tree is a shelter for the abandoned souls; the souls of humans who have not been liberated. That is why many people said they saw white shadows at the banyan tree in the night.

My favorite wooden houses

To create and build a wooden house is not simple; the first thing when building a wooden house is the material. For this material, it needs to be well preserved, avoiding the harsh environment, not allowing the wood to be flooded regularly, removing all the outer skin of trees to minimize termites. Typically, softwood will be used for household appliances; hardwood is used to make bearing places such as stairs, floors, pillars, etc. If you do not have a deep understanding of wood materials, you need advice from experts to make the best choice for your house. Besides, my favorite house also includes decorative items made of wood. For me, self-made wooden things like the picture frame will bring more satisfaction, with only the best hammer and a few nails that I can create a family photo frame for my house.

1. A one-story house combined with glass doors will create an elegant and modern look. To add a cool and relaxing part, it will be a small swimming pool combined with a wooden floor for avoiding slippery when playing or running, it will keep children safe when outdoor entertainment activities. Around the house is decorated flowers and plants.

2. Wooden houses combined with large sized stones will create an ancient feel and are a bit rude. However, if such a house is built in high places, it will be more wonderful and suitable for the scenery. Those with strong personalities will keen on this kind of house.

The advantage for houses built with stone is solidity, the tolerance of these walls is extremely good during the rainy season, or during the storms, they block strong winds and heavy rains. In the dry season, these stone walls have the ability to help lower your home temperature and avoid the summer heat.

3. Just like the house above, this European-styled house is a combination of uniquely designed wood and white stone walls with large, airy windows and doors. Also on the dome of the house, there are sky-well windows that allow natural light to easily enter the house. At night, the whole house is covered in a shimmering sparkling light that makes it look romantic and outstanding.

4. A prevalent wooden house architecture in Vietnam, if you go to the countryside of Vietnam, you will see this type of house, which I also like. It is not as luxurious and modern as the above architectural styles, but the classic style with the most Asian tradition that I have ever seen.

The impression for me about this kind of house is that the roof, with a dome made of red bricks, combined with a wooden frame, it not only helps the roof that is not waterlogged and the house is cool but also create delicate and elegant. Moreover, these houses also create accents with carved letters or shapes made of wood chisels that are incredibly sophisticated and eye-catching.


A wooden house, brings close and familiar with the highlight is the natural landscape, the garden has rivers and streams, swimming pools, orchards, flowers, and plants, creating a comfortable living space, harmony with nature, always being a nice place of each person during the weekend. Because the house is not simply a place to go back, is a place to regain strength after long days of hard work but also create spaces for family members to feel close, share, having love and reunion.

Around The Association With John Daigle

Every Wednesday, John Daigle of stops by Spin IT to provide his assessment of various happenings around the NBA.

This week, Daigle introduces you to his (mostly) fool-proof system for determining which teams will be the last 3 in and the first 3 out in the Western Conference.

For more of John Daigle, be sure to visit The Unbiased Fan.

With only a few weeks remaining in the regular season, there are quite a few things I can confidently claim to know: What Boston has accomplished without their best player on the court is nothing short of astonishing; George Hill might be having the most underrated NBA season of any player out there; The Heat are really, really good; The Bobcats are really, really bad; Bryan Colangelo already regrets the Rudy Gay trade; No matter their combined age or resting situation, every team should fear running into the Spurs during the postseason; The Grizzlies are a legitimate contender if their seeding-chips fall in the right place; The Detroit obituaries, if even for a second, had reserved a spot for Brandon Knight after the DeAndre dunk; Orlando might have a sneaky-good core of role players in place between Vucevic, Harris, Moore, and Harkless; I’m not sure what the hell the Sixers are doing; And did I mention the Heat are really good?

However, one issue I can’t seem to put my finger on is which teams will eventually sneak into the postseason for the West. The top five seeds, minus the obligatory jostling that’s sure to take place over the next few weeks, might be set in stone, but the six through eleven seeds are separated by a mere six games. How are we supposed to deduce who’s in and who stays home to enjoy the new season of Game of Thrones on the night of?

The good news is, together, I feel like this can be accomplished. So, without further ado, I present to you the point scale that’s sure to help us reach a conclusion (or drive me to a Carrie Mathison-like state at the end of Homeland Season One).

It’s rather simple. We’ll only be judging Golden State, Houston, the Lakers, Utah, Dallas, and Portland, seeing as they’re the only teams left competing for three spots. A team receives two points for winning the category, one point for being an honorable mention, and half a point whenever I deem fit. (I wouldn’t try to argue that last bullet point, either. If you feel the need to protest any half-point increments, I’ll promptly use the Chewbacca defense and walk away.) In the end, we’ll tally the points we’ve divvied up to each team and see where we stand. Fail proof, right?

And as a friendly reminder, this is once again being brought to you by Around The Revolutions

Strength of Schedule

Though this category offered numerous ways to approach it, I felt the best method was to address the toughest paths, rather than the easiest. For instance, the Warriors, Rockets, and Lakers have 10 games remaining against teams over .500, while Portland, on the other hand, has 16.

The worst luck happens to lean towards the Mavericks, who have 13 games left to play against above-.500 teams, yet only two games in which they could make up an entire game between themselves and the sixth seed (LAL, Portland).

However, the two most interesting outlooks to watch surrounding these six teams are (1) How the next seven games for Utah play out (@OKC, Mem, NYK, @Hou, @SA, @Dal, Por), and (2) How Los Angeles handles their final four games of the season (@Por, GS, SA, Hou). (Don’t worry. If it comes down to a win-and-in situation, you can lay the house on a Live Journal the following morning.)

Nonetheless, the clear winner here is Golden State. With only 10 games remaining against above-.500 teams, six of those happen to be versus opponents they could stay an entire game up on with a victory (Hou, LAL x 2, Port x 2, Utah).

SCORE:  Golden State – 2, Houston – 1, LAL – 1, Utah – 0, Dallas – 0, Portland – 0


Is there any doubt who walks away from this one with two points? Only one team throughout the entire league has scored more points than the Rockets (Denver), while the Knicks, who are second in the league in 3-point-attempts, rank nearly one hundred behind them. And even with their high-volume of shooting from behind the arc, Houston’s accuracy hasn’t taken a hit, sinking an incredible 37.3% of their 3’s. (For comparison, the Warriors have attempted just below 1300 and are shooting a league-best 39.7%.)

Just to drive home the point, the Rockets are also the only team on this list that rank in the top 10 of OffRtg (scoring 107.3 points per 100 possessions), assist percentage (60.9% of their shots come via assist), and rebounding percentage (50.7%, which shouldn’t come as too much of a shock seeing as Morey and McHale preach the Moneyball-method of volume-shooting and rebounding). (Though their second-worst opponent offensive rebounding percentage might need some work.)

SCORE:  Houston – 2, GS – 1, LAL – 0, Utah – 0, Dallas – 0, Portland – 0

Best Pending Reality Show

An incredibly strong category considering these are teams fighting to live another day. I’m not sure what Utah, Portland, or Golden State bring to the table in terms of entertainment, but Karoake with Delfino!, The Roast of Dwight Howard, and my personal favorite, Vinsanity’s School of Cycling undoubtedly have wheels.

SCORE:  Dallas – 2, LAL – 1, Houston – 1, Utah – 0, Portland – 0, GS – 0


In a not-so-coincidental coincidence, none of these teams are currently listed in the top 10 of defensive efficiency. In fact, none are ranked in the top 15. Actually, let’s take this a step further. Here’s a list of how many points per 100 possessions each team is currently allowing, with their league ranking in parentheses.

Golden State – 103.4 (17)

Los Angeles – 103.9 (18)

Utah – 104.1 (19)

Dallas – 104.2 (20)

Houston – 104.9 (24)

Portland – 105.3 (25)

Thanks for doing all the work for me, guys.

SCORE:  Every team -1


There’s certainly a clear-cut winner here, however, almost every team deserves some sort of applause. The Trail Blazers began their transition during the most recent offseason, while the Warriors are currently competing with a team of surging youths that are destined to be an eventual contender with one or two more minuscule additions.

Furthermore, the Mavericks reasoning behind the release of Chandler revolves solely around the CBA and what lies in the future, the Lakers only have one player on the books during the Summer of Lebron (literally), and the Jazz holds all the cards with two exponential sign-and-trade pieces in Millsap and Jefferson. It’s just too bad each of these teams has to compete with the Rockets analytics.

I’ve written it time and time again, so I’ll save further barraging for another date. Just don’t be shocked when the Rockets “fill-in” players around a couple of maxed out superstars are (instead of casual names like Carter, Meeks, and Hayward) Lin and Asik.

SCORE:  Houston – 2, Dallas – 1, Utah – 1, GS – 1, LAL – 1, Portland – .5


Sure, no one in the league might be trekking towards the playoffs like the Nuggets  (nine in a row/19-4 over their last 23, which is about an 11 on the Holy Shit Meter), but there are still a few outliers in this group that are just now reaching their peak.

Though they’re slowly attempting to right the ship, Golden State has been the complete opposite of this category as of late, going 6-12 over their last 18 games. On the same note, Utah is getting shelled in the second half of games, specifically in the third quarter, where they’ve allowed 111.8 points per 100 possessions while only scoring 92.8 over the course of their last seven games (2-6). (It should also be noted that even in those two wins, they scored 109.3 and allowed 136.5 in the third.)

On the opposite end of the spectrum, the Rockets are finding a groove, and Dallas is hitting their stride at the right time, winning five of their last six. The big winner here, though, remains the Lakers.

Rising from the depths of 17-25, Los Angeles has somehow collected themselves over time, now sitting three games above .500. Howard’s momentous 39 and 16 in Orlando may or may not have been an important niche and turning point of this season (let alone his career), but either way, the Lakers are building chemistry en route to a likely postseason berth.

SCORE:  LAL – 2, Houston – 1, Dallas – 1, GS – 0, Utah – 0, Portland – 0


Ladies and Gentlemen, welcome back to America’s favorite game show: GUESS! THAT! NAME!!

You already know how to play, so let’s jump straight into it. Ready? Ok, go ahead and…GUESS! THAT! NAME!!!

Your category is THE FINAL FIVE MINUTES…

Kyrie Irving – 43-90 FG, 47.8 FG%, 9-28 3FG, 32.1 3FG%

(Player A) – 17-34 FG, 50 FG%, 14-25 3FG, 56 3FG%

Answers locked? Well, if you guessed Wesley Matthews…YOU’RE CORRECT! Thanks for playing, and as always, please have your pets spayed or neutered.

Of the 38 players that qualified with 100+ minutes logged during the final five minutes of games (when CLUTCH statistics are tracked), Matthews has the highest shooting percentage from beyond the arc (per NBA Stats Database) and has been a constant go-to, along with Lillard.

I realize you want the ball in Kobe’s hand during those must-have moments, especially since he’s still playing out-of-this-world great. Or maybe you’ll even suffice with Harden/Virk Carwitzki. But come on, Portland is still in the negatives! Plus, we somehow have to make up for LaRue Martin, Mychal Thompson, Greg Oden, and Arvydas Sabonis (every Trail Blazers fan just smashed their computer).

SCORE: Portland – 2, LAL – 1.5, Dallas – 1, Houston – 1, Utah – 0, GS – 0

So, if you’ve been keeping track, the totals are as follows (drum roll, please)…

Houston – 7

Los Angeles – 5.5

Dallas – 4

Golden State – 3

Portland – 1.5

Utah – 0

And there you have it. I’m not saying it’s a fool-proof plan for figuring the West out, but it’s the best method we have

Rob Gronkowski Doesn’t Even Need New Orleans to Party

I’m sure we all remember Gronk and a few other Patriots throwing the greatest Loser’s Post-Superbowl Party ever just one year ago. This year, the Patriots again came up short of their ultimate goal in the playoffs, losing to the Ravens in a game in which they were favored by 9 points.

But it’s tough to keep a good Gronk down, especially when he’s geared up for some down time in New Orleans. Last night, he was sighted warming up for the weekend at Bogie’s Bar in Baton Rouge, responsibly chaperoning a group of fraternity kids from LSU. Look out, Bourbon Street, the Gronkowski is drawing near.

Spin IT is still investigating the specifics of the situation (i.e. What happened to Gronk’s shirt? How many of those LSU slots did he bang exactly?)We’ll keep you posted.

H/t Reddit user clb2489

[UPDATE] A few friends of mine who live in Baton Rouge have informed me that they weren’t at the bar and would never go because it’s a “freshman bar.”

Confiscating alcohol from underage college kids? All in a day’s work for Rob Gronkowski. Like we said before, the man was chaperoning.

[UPDATE] So apparently, he was also there with former LSU and current Pats running back Stevan Ridley. They went because Ridley used to hang out there during his LSU days from what I’ve heard. Further commentary brought to you by a much douchier Reddit user, Geaux12:

If you attended or have ever visited LSU, you will understand why Gronk, Ridley, and half of the athletes at LSU love Bogie’s. It’s jam-fucking-packed with gorgeous sorority girls. And they have a great patio in the back. Favorite college bar in Baton Rouge.

If you hate fraternity men, I wouldn’t bother though.

You will also understand why more down-to-Earth students hate it.

[UPDATE] While the exact whereabouts of Gronk’s shirt still remains a mystery, Softy_K has assured me that he did, in fact, come in wearing a shirt

Rob Parker Gets Interviewed by Worst Interviewer Ever; Says He Will Continue to Talk About Race

Rob Parker’s 30-day suspension from ESPN isn’t even over, and he’s already back in our worlds to talk more about race, like we said he would.

Here’s his first interview since his “Cornball Brotha” incident with Flash Point on

This is as manufactured and rehearsed an interview as has ever been done. The interviewer basically sets Parker up throughout with easy questions, but somehow, there were still many offensives, politically incorrect statements made by both, as Parker still claims that RGIII is “pushing away from his people” and the interviewer awkwardly brings up facts about “whites being in the stands watching black athletes” while using words like “peeps.”

Watch. The Parker interview starts up at around the 2:15 mark.
