Trading Spaces

Trading Spaces is an hour-long American television reality program that aired from 2000 to 2008 on the cable channels TLC and Discovery Home. The format of the show was based on the BBC TV series Changing Rooms; the first iteration ran for eight seasons. A revival began airing on April 2018, with several team members of the original run returning. In each episode, two sets of neighbors redecorated one room in each other's home; each two-person team had two days, a budget of US$1,000, the services of a designer. Both teams in early seasons shared one carpenter, while on, each team had a carpenter. Although the producers allowed the teams to go over budget there was one instance when a designer went $150 over budget and the producers forced her to return a rug she bought for the project; the teams have no say over what happens in their own homes, but they are able to give input into what happens in the home they are redecorating. The teams are not allowed to enter their own home for the duration of the show, the transformed rooms are revealed only at the end of the final day.

Ty Pennington, one of the show's original carpenters hosted Extreme Makeover: Home Edition on ABC. The first season featured original host Alex McLeod and some designers who never returned to the show, such as Dez Ryan and Roderick Shade, was produced by Knoxville, Tennessee–based RVIR Media. After the first 40 episodes, McLeod received an Emmy nomination for her work in the first season, but left to pursue other television opportunities. Beginning with the second season in 2001, Paige Davis took over as host, with the new production company Banyan Productions of Philadelphia. Early-season episodes were traditionally videotaped in and around the production company's home base, as can be seen in those episode's titles. Beginning in the show's fifth season, homeowners chose up to three rooms for their neighbors to re-decorate, the rooms were selected randomly, with some rooms having increased budgets of $2000 or $3000. Midway through this season, Davis was dismissed, the show went to a hostless format for several seasons and episodes featured two carpenters.

This change allowed the two homes to be farther apart, with the most extreme case featuring homes in New York and Oklahoma in the same episode. On November 13, 2007, it was announced that Davis would be returning as the host of Trading Spaces beginning in January 2008; the first episode with Davis as host aired on January 26, 2008. The show changed production companies, from Banyan Productions to A. Smith & Co. Productions. On February 6, 2009, Davis announced. On March 28, 2017, TLC announced that it had ordered an eight-episode revival of Trading Spaces from Endemol Shine North America's Authentic Entertainment. Host Paige Davis returned, joined by a number of cast members from the original era of the series, as well as new carpenters Brett Tutor and Joanie Dodd, new designers John Gidding, Kahi Lee, Sabrina Soto, one-off crossovers from Nate Berkus and Jeremiah Brent and Clinton Kelly. A reunion special hosted by Lisa Joyner was planned to accompany the April 7, 2018 premiere, featuring appearances by other former cast members.

The format remains unchanged from the previous seasons, although the spending budget was increased to $2,000. There is brand integration with the online retailers Overstock.com and Wayfair. The two-hour premiere was seen by 2.8 million viewers, making it TLC's highest-rated Saturday primetime program since 2010. On May 30, 2018, TLC renewed Trading Spaces for a tenth season, with a premiere date set for March 16, 2019, twelve episodes produced; the show featured different participants each episode.

Sarah Maple

Sarah Maple is a British visual artist. She was recognised for her work after being awarded the "New Sensations" prize. Maple was born in 1985 to British Father. In 2003, she had gone through a Foundation Course at the University of the Creative Arts. Four years she received a BA of Fine Art with honors at Kingston University. Much of Maple's inspiration originates from being brought up as a Muslim, with parents of mixed religious and cultural backgrounds. Blurring the lines between popular culture and religious devotion in an unfailingly mischievous manner, Sarah's aesthetic narrative urges the viewer to challenge traditional notions of religion and the societal role of women. Maple's work takes on fabricated scenes and situations, she is affected by the art world, as well as from her general surroundings. Her work is inspired by politics and literature, she believes these influences are woven into her art and provide the platform upon which her work is realised. Maple states. I believe comedy is a great tool to achieve this, why I choose to portray my conceptual ideas through a light-hearted and tongue-in-cheek approach'.

In 2007 she won the "4 New Sensations" competition, run by Channel 4 in conjunction with the Saatchi Gallery. The competition's aim is "to find the most exciting and imaginative artistic talent in the UK" from among art students graduating that year. In 2015 she won a Sky Academy Arts Scholarship to produce a new body of work for a new solo exhibition in 2017 Maple has exhibited her work at galleries and institutions such as Tate Britain, The New Art Exchange, Golden Thread Gallery and Kunstihoone Tallinn In 2015 she released her first book'You Could Have Done This', a hardback art book of selected works with contributions from Beverley Knowles, Margaret Harrison, Oreet Ashery and Anne Swartz Sarah Maple is the judge for international art competition in London Passion For Freedom London Festival at Mall Galleries.

Rama (Neretva)

Rama is a river in Bosnia and Herzegovina, a major tributary of the Neretva. It joins it from the right by discharging into Neretva's artificial reservoir, Jablaničko lake, at place called Marina Pećina, near village of Gračac, between location of underground powerhouse of Rama Hydroelectric Power Station and Jablanica Dam, depending on water level in Jablaničko lake, some 15 kilometers upstream from Jablanica; the Rama flows through municipalities of Prozor-Rama and Jablanica and Herzegovina, while its headwaters together with wellsprings in the region of Gornja Rama, in Rama valley, are submerged under the reservoir Ramsko Lake. The Rama springs out from large karst wellsprings called Ramasko Ljetno i Zimsko Vrelo, while couple of other large karst wellsprings contribute a majority of rivers waters. In what's now submerged Rama valley, in the region of Gornja Rama, the wellsprings of Ramsko Ljetno, Krupić and Buk being three largest are situated between villages of Rumboci and Kopčići and distributed around western-southwestern edge of the valley.

Numerous smaller ones, such as Tornjaci, Močila and Klenjak in Kovačevo Polje contribute to the river volume in its uppermost headwaters. Prozor-Rama Ramsko Lake Rama Hydroelectric Power Station
