How to choose a steam shower

Buying a steam shower in Canada is like having your own sauna at your home. If you wanted to purchase one yourself then here are some guidelines that you need to consider:

  1. If you wanted to buy a Toronto steam shower then know your needs and preferences from it first. Steam showers are usually equipped with lots of extra features such as adjustable lighting, aromatherapy and stereo systems. So think about if you really need these features so that you can prepare the money for it and if not then just go for the simple one.
  2. You should know that steam showers come in different sizes. Try to calculate the dimensions and see if what you need can fit in your home.
  3. Steam showers usually come in with easy controls. You can ask the salesperson in charge how these steam showers are controlled. It would be better if it comes along with a remote control in it so that you won’t bother getting up while doing your steam shower session.

Be sure to check out these guides when you buy a steam shower for your home. If they really meet your needs and preferences then surely you will have a good relaxing moment at home.

BLOOMBERGVILLE DISRUPTS LAST NIGHT’S CITY COUNCIL VOTE (VIDEO)

At 7:30PM Tuesday night, June 28, as City Council was scheduled to vote on the budget deal, about 100 residents marched from Bloombergville down Broadway to protest at City Hall.

As the protesters reached City Hall, a disruption squad of 13 entered the City Council office building at 250 Broadway, across the street.  Chanting “Stop the Vote!  Stop the Vote!  We have a right to be here!” they sat down in the lobby, locking their arms together to block the entrance from inside.

When word of the action spread, protesters broke off from City Hall and hurried across Broadway to the City Council building.  Inside the building, police began separating the protesters and arresting them.  Shouting “Let Them Go!” and “They say cut back, we say fight back!” protesters outside surged forward to block the entrance, preventing police from taking the group out the main doors.

As police started bringing the sit-in protesters out a side entrance instead, they were met by more Bloombergville protesters, calling “Let Them Go!” and surrounding the two police vans they were being loaded into and keeping them from being driven off.  Police and protesters chased each other for two blocks, stopping the vans and being pushed back so they could keep going.

Protests continued into the night at 250 Broadway and then at the Emigrant Bank Building, 49-51 Chambers Street, where the vote was scheduled to be held around midnight.  In the end, the vote on the budget was postponed until Wednesday.

Protests continue today.

STAND BY US (Video)

Mayor Bloomberg’s proposed budgets cuts threaten schools, hospitals, fire stations and thousands of workers’ jobs.

After already deep cuts in previous years that left hospitals underfunded, closed schools, eliminated bus lines, cut subway service and reduced other public services, like sanitation and rat control, New York can’t take much more. New cuts will leave the city sicker, poorer, and less safe.

Since Tuesday residents of Bloombergville have camped out, marched and rallied in and around City Hall Park to protest the planned cuts and stop the budget.

“Stand By Us,” a video by Messiah Rhodes, shows some of the highlights and captures the spirit of Bloombergville’s first few days.

View the video here:

All New Yorkers who are willing and able, come join us we will be here day and night.  Sleep Out, Speak Up and Fight Back Against Budget Cuts!
