Book in the Slovenian language:  Kamishibaj at school and at home

Perhaps the biggest growth in interest in Kamishibai is happening outside Japan. Artists and kamishibai practitioners have actively been transporting kamishibai to countries throughout Europe to encourage local artists to create their own stories.  Kamishibai is a great pedagogical tool, and soon they were bringing it into kindergartens, schools, faculties, and libraries. By looking at the history of kamishibai, we are reminded that the kamishibai format does not have to be limited to one definition, performance style, or audience but rather should be seen as a truly versatile format that is limited only by the imagination.

Book titled Kamisibai at school and home, representing Japanese theater technique kamisibaj.The paper theater encourages children to read, write, draw and stage perform. An innovative approach to learning promotes creative thinking and expression of children.

Measurement of radon helps us to assess the quality of air in living and business premises.

Test Today For a Healthier Tomorrow 

Have you measured your Radon concentrations in your home? Radon is the most important cause of lung cancer after smoking. If you levels are to high it is easy to fix.

Clean air is extremely important in modern buildings for comfortable feeling. Natural ventilation is limited due to modern materials and method of construction. The construction of modern houses tends to low operating, construction costs, architectural ideals ... and often forget about the quality of the living environment.

 

Radon measurements
Radon measurements

 

When buying a property, we allow buyers to measure radon in buildings. Individuals who are aware of the harmful effects of increased radon concentration, usually with some repairs of buildings improve air quality in their living and business premises.

It is therefore important that air quality is constantly monitored. We can control what we can measure:

  • air temperature in the room
  • moisture in the room
  • presence of gases, smoke, carbon monoxide, radon
  • humidity control and mold on the walls
  • external influence or emissions

The digital mean radon concentration meter measures radon concentration in accommodation spaces.

Radon measurements in the living and working environment allow us to evaluate the value of radon and the impact of radon on health -  cause lung cancer.

 

In Slovenia, the highest concentrations of radon were measured in the western and southern part of the country, where carbonate rocks dominate, the Notranjsko - kraška part.

 

Radon enters the house through cracks in the floorboard and walls, through the pipes. The reason for the entry of radon into buildings is a slight decrease in pressure inside, which is a consequence of warmer air in buildings, especially in winter. In addition, during the cold period, ventilation of rooms is also reduced. Consequently, winter concentrations of radon are 2-3 times higher than average in summer.

 

In particular, it is necessary to emphasize the energy repair of existing buildings, which generally have a poorer sealing of the floorboard and in which the poor sealing of the windows and envelopes of the house ensured the continuous ventilation of the rooms. When new windows and new insulation wrap are installed in such a building, radon concentration in the building can be increased several times. The newest passive houses should, as a rule, have adequately sealed floor panels, which in combination with the central ventilation system will provide safety against elevated concentrations of radon. Despite all the preventive measures taken, however, for any building we can not say with certainty that it is safe from the radon until it is confirmed by measurements. Even the values ​​measured in adjacent buildings are usually very different.

Purchasing property in Slovenia.
