beautiful,story,ads beautiful picture,the,nineteenth,century,while,education,was seen,as a passport,to success,in professional,and public,life for,Victorian,middle-class boys,who were,educated”for the world, middle-class girls,were,educated”for the drawing room”and theireducation was social,rather,than intellectualAs a result,the majority ,of upper, and upper,middle,class girls were educated at home, with only a minority attending expensive, fashionable boarding schools with a non-academic curriculumMeanwhile the daughters of the professional and the merchant classes were educated at home until they were about ten years old, after which they attended a local day school for two or three years, generally followed by a boarding school which provided a social rather than an academic education. Lower-middle-class girls attended small, local day schools for about four or five years from around the age of ten, and their levels of achievement were particularly low,For the majority of upper- and middle-class girls, this pattern continued until as late as the beginning of the First World War. But in 1850 Frances Mary Buss established the North London Collegiate School, the first of the modern fee-paying day schools or High Schools, offering a similar education to that given to boys; in 1869 the Endowed Schools Act increased girls’ access to grammar schools, which had previously been almost exclusively male; in 1872 Emily Shirreff and her sister Maria Grey founded the Girls’ Public,Day School,Company, enabling,schools to be,owned,by trusts or,companies and controlled by a,board of governors,rather than by,private,individuals; and in,1877 the first girls’,public school, St Andrew’s,opened in Scotland, followed by,Roedean in,1885 and,Wycombe Abbey,in 18 year,
The application of Vapor Armour to your building envelope will dramatically reduce wear and maintenance of your compressors, greatly enhance cooling efficiency, saving you significant amounts of money.
10 common causes of damaging water intrusion.
One of the best first approaches to reducing energy use is through optimizing the building envelope to minimize heating and cooling (HVAC) loads – this can be accomplished through increased insulation, air tightness, and the quality of the windows.
The ERC is highly insulated in order to keep heating and cooling loads to a minimum. A minimum of R40 insulation is used on the roof and R30 in all of the walls – both assemblies of which exceed the insulation requirements of Canada’s Model National Energy Code for Building.
By increasing the insulation in the building, resultant demand on mechanical systems is reduced, this leads to greater overall energy savings for the building. The Earth Rangers Centre is nearly 90% more efficient than other “normally constructed” buildings of its size.

Indoor Air Quality: Water Intrusion and Microbial Contamination
This video presents recommendations for constructing a well-designed foundation that supports the house and directs water away from the structure. Topics include damp proofing, foundation drainage, and site grading. Types of foundations include basements, crawlspaces, and slabs-on-grade.
