King California King Western King or Eastern King?

With two sizes of King beds and four names, it can get confusing when you go shopping for a King Size Bed. A Standard King is also called an Eastern King and a California King is also called a Western King. A Standard King is about 10cm (4 inches) wider and a California King is 10cm (4 inches) longer.

Two people sleeping in a King size bed will get the same amount of personal sleeping space as in a Twin bed. In fact, if you pushed two Extra-Long Twin beds together they'd be about the same size as an Eastern King. For great versatility in a guest room, if you have the floor space, use 2 extra long twin beds separately for singles or push them together to make a king bed for couples.

When buying sheets, you have to be careful to purchase the right size. Flat sheets will fit both sizes of King beds, but fitted sheets are cut to fit one or the other. Before you go shopping for sheets, be sure to measure your bed exactly to be sure to buy the linens that will fit exactly.

Standard King or Eastern King beds are about 40 cm (16 inches) wider than a Queen bed and the same length. A King size bed is sold with two box springs or frames and one mattress. This makes it easier to move.

Overall dimensions: 193.04 cm (76 inches) wide x 203.20 cm (80inches) long

Width per person: 96.52 cm (38 inches)

Pros: As the widest bed commonly available in stores, the Standard King is the most comfortable for two adults. The 80? length is sufficient for most people. Sheets labeled "King Size" fit a Standard King bed.



Cons: Because of its size, a King bed may not be practical for a single person who has to do the moving by himself. They're hard to get upstairs, through narrow, winding hallways, and small rooms. A King bed may not be long enough for very tall people. Bedding is most expensive in the King sizes. The wide bed requires at least 3 standard or 2 queen or king pillows, adding to the cost.

California King or Western King beds are 12? wider than a Queen and 4? longer. This is the longest bed commonly available in stores and is the best choice for tall people. Like the Eastern King, the California King bed set comes with one mattress and two half-width box springs to be more manageable when moving. Very tall single people can sleep from corner to corner and still be comfortable.

Overall dimensions: 182.88 cm (72 inches) wide x 213.36 cm (84 inches) long

Width per person: 91.44 cm (36 inches)

Pros: A California King size mattress is wide enough for two to sleep comfortably and is the longest bed commonly available. Its extra length is good for tall people.

Cons: This very large mattress may be cumbersome to move and may not fit up stairs, through narrow hallways, or in small bedrooms. Like the Eastern King, the California King bed set comes with one mattress and two half-width box springs to be more manageable when moving. Very tall single people can sleep from corner to corner and still be comfortable.

Mormon Missionary Training Center: An Elite Boot Camp

PROVO, Utah (RNS) The 35-acre campus is an island of young people, where teens and 20-somethings outnumber grown-ups by 10-to-1.

The place is awash in fresh-faced students, and even the workers -- from the cafeteria to the copy center, the mailroom to the bookstore -- and most of the teachers are under 30.

It's no "Animal House," though, with raucous frats, food fights and binge drinking. This is Mormonism's elite Missionary Training Center, where the men wear white shirts and ties, the women don modest skirts and dresses and everyone is expected to heed the rules.

It ranks second among the nation's largest on-site language schools, behind only the U.S. Defense Departmen

Vrouekarakters in enkele prosawerke van C.M. van den Heever. (Research Articles).

Abstract

The role of women In some prose works of C.M. van den Heever



Re-reading the C.M. van den Heever "classics" Somer

(1935) and Laat vrugte (1939) within the framework of Van den Heever

criticism through the years, one becomes aware that central themes in

his oeuvre are acted out by women. The beautiful young girl Linda in

Somer embodies the sadness of the transcience of beauty and happiness.

Through Ouma Willa, Betta and Johanna--three women from three

generations in Laat vrugte--the theme of the endurance of the memory of

love and passion beyond decay and death is expressed. A cursory examination of other

5 Chic, Under-The-Radar Hotels You'll Want To Live In Forever

There are hotels that look like hotels -- rooms with bland Costco art, curtains that weigh as much as the bed, a minibar with a $7 bag of nuts -- and there are hotels that make you feel like you're staying with a friend who has impeccable taste.

Take Anna Bern's Nest Inn, in Narrowsburg, New York, for example. The art director-turned-shopkeeper and hotelier had so many people tell her that they wanted to live in her boutique, Nest, that she eventually bought a house around the corner and turned it into a two-room inn, furnished with the same merchandise she finds on her worldwide travels and sells in the shop.

The following hotels span the country and range in price, location,
