Problem with set positions of components

Hello, i am newbie.

I learn vaadin a few days and i’m trying do a example application. Now i’m working on set my components to standard 2 columns layout. And i have problem and don’t know what i have to do.

im sending a photo: http://i47.tinypic.com/ddorcz.jpg

and source code: http://4programmers.net/Pastebin/1923

Second question: how can i create somethings vertical, or horizontal spacer items? For example, i need lower the positions of panels “menu” and “aktualnosci”.

Greetings
