The UK has its fair share of accidents over 750,000 per year occur in the home. This is broke down as follows:-
- 500,000 people injured colliding with household objects
- 235,000 injured using their stairs
Some of the more bizarre facts are that over 50,000 people a year are injured by beds which are the most common furniture in the home that causes accidents. Who would have though a bed would make for a lethal health and safety hazard.
Additionally even more bizarrely over 30,000 people are injured in the home annually due to wood flooring. In contrast the figure of 235,000 people injured when using stairs makes more sense.
This results in over 3000 deaths a year. It makes for grim reading but these figures show the home can be a dangerous place. Even more so for the elderly over 65 that make a large proportion of people suffering an accident using their stairs in the home. With children under 5 making a substantial contribution to the figures.

Microsoft is hardly likely to let their old rivals get ahead of them, so it’d be surprising if the new Xbox 720 (as it’s currently known) doesn’t come out at the same time, if not before. So wherever your allegiances lie, you should have a little something to stick on the Christmas list.
It’s about time too. It’s been a good 8 years since the release of the Xbox 360 and PS3 and all this time those self-satisfied PC gamers have been racing ahead. Consolers can’t keep up with their ramped-up graphics cards and space-age hard drives – but that will all change at the end of the month.
So with all this extra power, what can we expect from the games?

Anytime you’re crafting some sort of building, be it residential or commercial, you are going to deal with some debris.

In this quick tutorial, you’re going to learn how to create cool SVG files that can be used in conjunction with VideoScribe, a software developed by Sparkol.
How To Create SVG Files Part I
First you will need a high quality image that you can work with. Either by tracing it, or by converting it into shapes and paths. To do that, you can use Illustrator or Inkscape. In this example we will use Illustrator, as it’s one of my favorite pieces of software ever developed by adobe.
To get your image, a royalty free one I mean, go to: http://office.microsoft.com/en-us/images/ . That’s where I’ve got my snowboarder from. I then import it into Illustrator, by dragging and dropping the image in.
