(5) “A usual carpenter can earn an hourly rate of $32.27. Good money in carpentry not astonishingly depends for the carpenter’s work. Glazers, particularly those that are self-employed, rely a lot on recommendations. When the carpenter has fine working history it’s highly likely that his customers will be recommending him to other folks. Career openings or job availabilities are anticipated to be plentiful due to new houses getting constructed, home remodeling or residence building replacements. A normal annual salary can range from less than $18,000 to more than $49,000. Once more, this would depend for the experience as well as geographic region, union affiliation, economic times as well as the climate. Median salary is approximately $29,000.”

(2) Demand- “The Bureau of Labor Statistics projects 20 percent job growth for carpenters from 2010 to 2020, driven by population growth and the need for infrastructure maintenance, this rate is 6 percentage points higher than the average for all occupational groups.” Many of these jobs need the support on home renovations and government infrastructure needs. Carpenters are needed in every area of a project, which makes them a better choice because they can be used no matter what.
Ryan Marasti's comment, March 27, 2014 1:11 PM
(3) Choice- Carpentry is very different than other jobs in that way in which they are so much more capable of doing some many different things. So that leads to them being able to do more work and opens up where they can do it as well. Thirty-nine percent of carpenters in the US are self-employed. This lets the carpenters really what kind of job that they want and what suits them best as well. The job is an outdoor option or an indoor option as well.
Ryan Marasti's comment, March 27, 2014 1:11 PM
(4) Training- Carpenters have the luxury of a wide range of training, making money, and at the same time increasing their skills and knowledge. The thing that most people look to get is an apprenticeship. During this they may gain the knowledge in scaffolding, fall protection, and Occupational and Health Administration issues.

8) Wet –floodproofing “allows the uninhabited lower portion of a building to flood, but uses materials that will not be damaged by flooding.”
Ryan Marasti's comment, March 5, 2014 3:28 PM
9) Active floodproofing “sometimes known as contingent (partial) or emergency (temporary) floodproofing, requires human intervention to implement actions that will protect a building and its contents from flooding. Successful use of this technique requires ample warning time to mobilize people and equipment and floodproofing materials.”
Ryan Marasti's comment, March 5, 2014 3:29 PM
10) Passive floodproofing “sometimes referred to as permanent floodproofing, requires no human intervention—the building (and/or its immediate surroundings) is designed and constructed to be floodproof without human intervention.”

(8) Some of the great pros to being a carpenter is, faster employment growth, specific jobs just for you, you can enter the field with just a high school diploma, and finally to work in cities with a growing population.

(9) At the same time though you have very bad things that you could end up facing such as, high risk of non-fatal injuries, hard strenuous work, steadiness of work may rely on weather conditions, and of course will require at least three of four years of apprenticeship work.

(10) At the same time you may also want to learn skills in other areas like math and science to help you with making your own blue prints or designs. Some of the key ones are computer- assisted programs, first-aid used for possible on-site injuries, procuring materials used in designs, and also communicating with employers and construction workers.

IDEERS - Resistant Buildings - Adding Dampers

Different types of dampers can be used to absorb energy from buildings when they vibrate during an earthquake.

4) Metallic dampers are made all from steel. They are made to be changed so when the quake strikes its unable to return to its original shape. It also transfers some of that energy into the actually building itself. One of these dampers is used where two braces join together. When the building is vibrating these braces should compress and make this thing deform and take it out of its original shape.
Ryan Marasti's comment, March 5, 2014 3:21 PM
5) Friction dampers are made to slide over one another. When the parts slide over one another, some of that energy goes back into the building. This damper is consisted of several steel plates with holes in them allowing them to be bolted to the other plates. These plates have had special treatment to them to make them create more friction.
Ryan Marasti's comment, March 5, 2014 3:21 PM
6) Viscous fluid dampers are more or less like a shock you can find on a bike or a car. They have a fluid in them such as oil. There are three parts to it; there is a piston, damper, and then the brace and it all works together as one to support the building. The piston is able to move in and out of the damper. The oil is made to flow through the holes and cause friction. The energy is actually transferred into heat energy. When the building moves from left and right, it forces the piston to move in and out of the damper.

1) Lead-rubber bearings are a type of base isolation bearings. It is made from layers of rubber smashed together with layers of steel as well. In the middle of it all is a solid lead plug. On the bottom and top the bearing is fitted with plates of steel, which are made to connect the building and foundation. In the vertical direction the bearing is still and strong but also flexible in the horizontal direction.
Ryan Marasti's comment, March 5, 2014 2:42 PM
2) Spherical sliding isolation bearings is another way to protect against earthquakes. This way is supported with bearing pads with a curved surface and low friction. Due to the curved surface the building slides both vertically and horizontally. The needed force to move the building upward limits the lateral forces, which would lead to a building miss, happen. The cause of these bearings also can make the length of the buildings period of vibration.

3) Damping devices are usually apart of a bracing system. When one of the ends is attached to a column and the other is attached to a floor beam. Giving the column more strength and support. The columns usually go through the most and need the most extra support so that’s why we add strenght to them. It braces the structure not allowing as much damage.
