Open Your Home to a Hallway of Possibilities

CIL Paints provides easy three-step guide to painting

one of the most neglected areas of the home

March 5, 2012 – When it comes to painting your home’s hallways, do you have tunnel vision? You’re not alone, says leading Canadian paint brand CIL Paints.

“The number one question we receive from people across the country is how to paint a hallway,” says Alison Goldman, Marketing Communications Manager for leading Canadian paint brand CIL Paints. “Hallways are often a neglected area of the home and the last space to be given any colour consideration, yet they have great potential and are simple to beautify with a little paint and planning.”

For starters, it’s important to take into account the size of the space being painted and its visual relationship to surrounding rooms, Goldman advises. “As with any other room in the house, the amount of lighting in the area is also an important consideration, especially because hallways tend to be tunnel-like,” she explains.

Goldman provides this easy three-step guide to choosing the right paint colour for the job:

1. Create colour illusions. Use colour to correct oddly-shaped spaces, such as a hallway that is long and narrow. Paint the long walls a lighter colour and the far, short wall a darker colour to compress the space. To make a narrow hallway look larger, paint the ceiling a very dark colour, which creates the feeling of the walls being higher. Another way to create the effect of more volume in a hallway is to paint architectural details such as doorframes, window frames, moldings and trim the same shade as the walls. If you’re looking to add height to a closed-in space, a crisp white ceiling will do the trick.

2. Coordinate with adjacent rooms. If the hallway has fixed openings to other rooms, choose paint colours that coordinate throughout the area to give the space visual flow. Rooms off the hallway that have doors that can be closed offer more colour freedom. The general rule of thumb when it comes to painting small spaces is to use light, neutral colours like beige, gray or white – such as CIL’s Lazy Days (90YR 83/053), Pelican (30YY 72/018) or Yucca White (90YY 83/107) – to make space look larger. Playing it safe with neutral colours also helps brighten up the area and ensure the hallway coordinates with colour schemes in adjoining rooms.

3. Deck the walls with creativity. For hallways that can withstand more vibrant colour, yellow is an enduring favourite, ranging from mellow tones to bright, cheery shades. Go for blue-based gray if space gets some natural light and rose-based gray to add warmth. Icy pink or a pale green give the hallway a shabby chic touch, while antique whites and creams lend a classic look. More dramatic colours like red, brown and even black – framed by light coloured trim – can be used to create a stunning space. Keep in mind that since walls in the hallway are close together, the colour will appear more intense than it would in other rooms.

“No matter what colour you choose for your hallways, it’s critical to use the right paint product since hallways are high-traffic areas that take a lot of abuse,” Goldman says, explaining that highly-durable, washable paints, such as CIL Smart³ Interior Wash & Wear, are recommended. Developed using Ceramic Microsphere and StainBlock technologies, CIL Smart³ Interior Wash & Wear is specially formulated to resist chipping, scuffing and marking, and allows dirt and stains to be easily removed.

“We pass through our home’s hallways likely more than any other space in the house, so we might as well ensure we enjoy the view for a long time to come,” says Goldman. “With these easy guidelines, transforming a hallway from drab to fab is as easy as 1-2-3.”

For more tips on painting hallways and other rooms in the home, or to locate a CIL retailer near you, visit http://www.cil.ca or call 1-800-DURABLE (387-2253).

A New Book That Will Revolutionize the Teaching Profession

Professional Capital: Transforming Teaching in Every School

NEW YORK, March 1, 2012, /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ — Teachers College Press is pleased to announce the publication of Professional Capital: Transforming Teaching in Every School, the newest book from best-selling education authors, Andy Hargreaves and Michael Fullan. Copublished with the Ontario Principals’ Council, Professional Capital promises to be the most important collaboration yet by Hargreaves and Fullan, both of whom are recognized internationally at the highest levels as experts on teaching and educational change. This book is so different, TC Press has not revealed the title and its central idea until today.

Hargreaves and Fullan remind us that the future of learning depends absolutely on the future of teaching. In Professional Capital, they show how the quality of teaching is captured in a compelling new idea: the professional capital of every teacher working together in every school. It’s a game changer. We will never be able to think about or discuss the nature or the future of teaching in the same way, ever again. Speaking out against policies that result in a teaching force that is inexperienced, inexpensive, and exhausted, these two world authorities—who know teaching and leadership inside out—set out a groundbreaking new agenda to transform the future of teaching and public education.

Pre-publication anticipation has been building and the book has already gained international recognition and praise from such notables as Sir Ken Robinson (world-renowned educator and author), who writes “Transforming education is one of the signature challenges of our times. Professional Capital sets out exactly and undeniably why the only way to do it is to honor and improve the profession of teaching. Written by two of the sharpest educational thinkers in the world, Professional Capital is an incisive critique of the failing reform movements in many countries and a powerful manifesto for the only strategy that can and does work. This book should revolutionize how policymakers and practitioners alike think and act in education. The price of failure is more than they or our children can afford.”

Additional admiration has come from Randi Weingarten (President, American Federation of Teachers), Pasi Sahlberg (Director General, CIMO at the Finnish Ministry of Education), Dan Domenech (Executive Director, American Association of School Administrators), Dennis Van Roekel (President, National Education Association), Steve Munby (Chief Executive, National College for School Leadership), Ben Levin (Professor and Canada Research Chair in Education Leadership and Policy, OISE/University of Toronto), and Christopher Harrison (President, UK National Association of Head Teachers).

Ideas-driven, evidence-based, and strategically powerful, Professional Capital combats the tired arguments and stereotypes of teachers and teaching and shows us how to change them by demanding more of the teaching profession and more from the systems that support it. This is a book that no one connected with schools can afford to ignore.

Andy Hargreaves is the Thomas More Brennan Chair in the Lynch School of Education at Boston College (www.andyhargreaves.com). Michael Fullan is Professor Emeritus of the Ontario Institute for Studies in Education of the University of Toronto (www.michaelfullan.ca).

Tales of an Energy Shifter, Shift the Energy – Change Your Life

By Sharon Sinclair

Like most of us, we live between two worlds, the inner life and the outer. In my case the two blur in the work that I do in both worlds. My husband and I spent years in the entertainment business as stage designers for major rock and country groups such as Reba, ZZ Top, Don Henley, Billy Joel, Pink Floyd and others. We worked in entertainment throughout the 70’s, 80’s and 90’s until about 2003. However, we always led a kind of double life as Larry is also a massage and bodywork therapist and I have been doing intuitive and psychic work since I was a small child. During much of this time, Larry was a VP at Walt Disney Imagineering, Lucas Films, and Universal Studios and I designed award-winning retail store designs for Pebble Beach Golf Course, Century City, Park City and many others.

Our spiritual life kept tugging at us, so in 1999 we moved to the Portland Oregon area and began a business called Energy Shifters. For the past 14 years we have been working with individual homes, real estate agents and developers who have “problem” energies in their homes. Yes, we even communicate with ghosts and spirits and help them to cross when necessary. The work is so fascinating and the more we do it the more we realize how important the service is and how few people do what we do. We have so many clients in desperate situations. Many people in this real estate market have real problems with what we call predecessor energy i.e., energy left by the previous owners of the home. So many people have been forced leave their homes due to divorce, bankruptcy, or foreclosure. These experiences and trauma leave a powerful imprint in a home. When a new buyer moves into the home, they can often fall prey to the effects of that energy. Some people’s homes actually make them sick. Many people understand that something is just wrong. They may call paranormal societies, but most of these groups may simply confirm the presence of entities, overlook other possible causes, and do nothing for the removal of ghosts, much less correct geological or other energetic anomalies. This is highly frustrating for the individuals and families.

We have helped many homes to heal, many people to heal themselves, mentally, spiritually and physically and businesses to prosper.

I describe myself as a Native American/Pagan/Buddhist. My family was my first and most important teachers. My Father was Cherokee, my Mother, and Grandmother of Celtic origins. Much of my subsequent studies have been rooted in Shamanic Buddhism. Many of the techniques I use were taught to me in the traditional (oral) way of being passed down by practice and observation through my Mother, Father, Grandmother and masters that I have sought and that came to me. I share these techniques and gifts with you in hopes of bringing you the clarity and the healing that you desire.

Please visit my website, www.energy-shifter.com and explore this other world around you and trust your instincts.

Happy Women’s Day!

Toronto Police Service
News Release

Distracted driving campaign results “Don’t Drive Distracted”

Tuesday, February 21, 2012 – 3:11 PM
Traffic Services
416-808-1900

On Monday, February 13, 2012, the Toronto Police Service launched a one-week enforcement campaign, “Don’t Drive Distracted”.

See the previous release.

Distracted driving poses a serious and growing danger to road safety in our community. The Toronto Police Service continues to take aim at all forms of distracted driving, including the irresponsible behaviour of drivers who engage in texting or making phone calls on their handheld devices.

During the seven-day campaign, which ended on Sunday, February 19, 2012, the Toronto Police Service issued:

1) 129 charges for a display screen visible to the driver (114 for 2011)
2) 1,705 charges for a handheld communication device (2,226 for 2011)
3) 77 charges for handheld entertainment device (102 for 2011)
4) 121 charges were laid for careless driving (122 for 2011)

A total of 9,876 charges were laid in comparison to the 8,758 charges laid in the 2011 campaign.

Distracted driving refers to all forms of distracted or inattentive driving such as adjusting a vehicle’s entertainment or GPS unit, eating and drinking, using a handheld device or viewing a DVD player or computer screen, etc. Drivers must realize that the true danger to public safety lies in the distraction, not the device.

The Toronto Police Service will continue its efforts to minimize the dangerous activity that distracted driving poses to all of the people who use Toronto’s roads, through continued education and enforcement.

Traffic Services is dedicated to ensuring the safe and orderly movement of traffic within the City of Toronto. Stay informed with what’s happening at:
Twitter, Facebook Fan Page, Facebook Group and on Blog.
