There are many benefits to having a built-in vacuum. No cords, less mess, more power, and an easier clean. It’s a convenient, high-performing, versatile, and all-around great value. Plus, it even helps to improve the indoor air quality of your house. If you haven’t yet considered upgrading to a built-in vacuum, we urge you to do so. For over three decades, at Gary’s Vacuflo, we’ve been making a difference in homes all around the Portland area by installing built-in vacuum systems.

You may be asking yourself what a built-in vacuum is. Essentially, it’s a vacuum that’s located in a central location in your home but works throughout all the rooms in your house, with pipes running through the interior walls. These pipes connect to the central unit of the system, which is stationary, meaning you’ll never have to lug a heavy portable vacuum around ever again.

Wondering how a built-in vacuum works? Let us explain it to you. There are four main components to a built-in vacuum that work together to function.

The Philippines has a rich history, going back hundreds of years. The cuisine of this archipelago has been infused by the many cultures the islands have been influenced by over the years. Because of this colorful past, their food is as unique as it is rich with a dizzying array of flavors. From complex and umami to sweet and cloying, it's no wonder that time and time again, Filipino cuisine is the talk of food lovers.


But every meal is completed, nay perfected, by the condiments that seal in its flavors. If you want to know what makes Filipino food so enticing, you have to get acquainted with these four condiments.


  1. Soy Sauce

Brought to the Philippines by Chinese, soy sauce is probably the most recognizable ingredient to come out of East Asia. Soy sauce is ubiquitous in Filipino cooking, often employed in dishes that are wildly removed in a culinary sense from the Chinese origins of the sauce.


Notable dishes that incorporate soy sauce include the world-famous adobo, where it's used to marinate the tender meats. It's also used to marinate Filipino-style steak, commonly known as bistek. When infused with sliced green chili and onions, it's a dipping sauce for various fried food, such as crispy pork cutlets. This makes soy sauce a must-have in a Filipino kitchen.


  1. Bagoong

This pungent but umami delicacy is one of the Philippine's most unique products. Generally, it refers to a variety of fermented condiments made of either anchovies or crustaceans, such as shrimp and crab. The seafood is washed and packed in salt and left to ferment anywhere between one to three months. The resulting paste has a number of uses.


For example, Barrio Fiesta's sweet bagoong is often used as a dipping sauce for unripe mangoes, the umami of the bagoong bringing out the sourness of the fruit. Bagoong is also a key ingredient in kare-kare, a savory stew made of peanut sauce, oxtail, and various vegetables.


  1. Vinegar

You will never find a Filipino kitchen that doesn't have a bottle of vinegar. The sour liquid is sometimes made of rice wine and even infused with spices such as red chilies and onions to give it a more complex flavor. Vinegar is amazingly versatile as an ingredient in Filipino cooking.


First, it's used as a dipping sauce, usually with chopped onions, for vegetable rolls and the local variety of sausages. Vinegar is also used in cooking adobo, providing the sourness of the dish. It's also the key ingredient in kilawin, a local delicacy made of raw fish. The acidity of the vinegar cooks the fish without heat, making it the Philippine counterpart to ceviche.


  1. Calamansi

This small green citrus fruit is native to the archipelago and at home in any Philippine dinner table. The calamansi has a unique flavor, tarter than lemon and not as tangy as lime. Filipinos use calamansi to marinate meats, such as beef and pork steaks, infusing them with its sour but savory flavor. Calamansi is also used to add more tanginess to individual dishes, such as rice porridge, various noodle-based meals, and combined with other sauces for dips and marinades.


If you're curious about how to use these condiments, you should take the time to learn a few Filipino recipes. So long as you remember to stock up on these different sauces and delicacies, you can get the flavor perfectly.

The COVID-19 Pandemic intensifies the Philippine’s battle against Double Burden of Malnutrition. Double Burden of Malnutrition is defined by World Health Organization (WHO) as “the coexistence of undernutrition along with overweight and obesity, or diet-related non communicable diseases, within individuals, households and populations, and across the life course.”


The limited distribution and access to food supplies aggravate the plight of poor and low income Filipino households to sustain each person’s required nutrients through healthy meals. On the other hand, home confinement due to the mandated community quarantine may cause more people to not only restrict their physical activities but also to overeat and/or consume more food with empty calories as part of coping with stress and/or boredom.

Some people travel because of the spectacular landscapes they want to tick off their bucket lists. Others travel to the destinations they saw in some of their favorite movies or TV shows, such as the people who opt for an Outlander tour in Scotland.

Yet there are those people who travel to a specific location solely because of the local cuisine, and truth be told, this might be the most authentic trip that one can make.

Determining whether you want a gas air compressor or an electric air compressor is one key choice in selecting an air compressor. This decision depends on your specifics needs, requirements, and application.

Gas-powered compressors are the best, if not the only option on sites where a lot of air is needed and there is no electricity. During the framing phase of new construction, this is seen most often.

Usually, these compressors are wheeled for portability because of the extra weight of the gas engines and the bigger pumps. They weigh from 120 to 200 pounds. Unless there is a lift gate or ramp, it will likely take two people to safely load and offload the compressor onto the truck at this weight.

This article will explain the differences between gas and electric compressors as well as what each is better suited to.

Times are tough. This is an undeniable fact that everyone in the world knows. Unless your family already has millions of pounds in the bank, you are affected by the global recession. The global economy has been bad for a long time. The standard prices of basic commodities have drastically multiplied over the years. On the other hand, the average household income has stayed almost at a constant throughout the years.

This phenomenon creates a substantial financial deficit for families. Households have to make many adjustments just for their budget to tide them over before the next payday. There are three strategies that a family can employ when they realize that their current budget is not enough:

In the past century, many of the biggest issues affecting teeth’s shape, colour, and alignment were treated with: 1) crowns – artificial caps that covered teeth, letting them rot inside while the outside looked healthy; and 2) braces, which put teeth in a metal net that some would call unsightly. Both of these technologies are still used in specific cases today, but another viable and convenient option has emerged for addressing various aesthetic and alignment dental issues – veneers.

Veneers are special coverings for teeth made of sturdy materials – dental porcelain (in most cases) and sometimes composite resins. This may sound a lot like crowns, but veneers only cover the front of the teeth and merge more than they cover.

It is said that the best gifts come from the heart. While earnest gifts with invested effort are sure to be appreciated, you can make your gift to someone a hundred times better by getting a little creative and customizing it. When you tailor your gift to the personality/interests/date-of-birth/other personal characteristics, it has a much better chance of being fully appreciated by the person receiving it. Below, we have compiled a list of 5 customizable gift ideas that may come in handy.
