The brief for this long and narrow site was to design a semi-detached house for a multi-generational family. The key challenge was that within the site boundary, a 5m-tall retaining wall juts into the length of the site by a third, drastically limiting the buildable area. Furthermore, the needs of the big family – a couple, their 4 children and 1 grandmother demanded that living spaces be maximised.Save this picture!© Aaron PocockArchitecturally, we sought to address the Client’s needs for a big house by embedding the building into the site – to build over the existing retaining wall with minimal impact to its structural integrity. This had to be done sensitively as the retaining wall supports a slope abutting a neighboring house perched 20m-tall over the back of the site.  Save this picture!© Aaron PocockSave this picture!SectionSave this picture!© Aaron PocockThrough a combined effort of architectural strategy and engineering innovation, there were opportunities for introducing meaningful garden spaces at every level. These garden spaces are especially private as they enjoy the cross breeze through the vista across the backyards of the row of neighboring houses which were all built away from the original retaining walls.  Save this picture!© Aaron PocockDue to the close proximity to the neighboring plots, a balance between privacy and openness had to be achieved. This weighed into our consideration, and screens were introduced to wrap around the private areas at the second story.Save this picture!Diagram 1Externally, rustic yellow granite was paired with the thick EIFS screens to convey the aesthetic of gravitas and create a sense of privacy. Though functional, these screens are decidedly ornamental, setting the Namly house apart from its neighbors.Save this picture!© Aaron PocockProject gallerySee allShow lessSmeg and Liebherr Kitchen Design ContestIdeasLinx Headquarters / AREALISSelected Projects Share CopyAbout this officeDesignshopOfficeFollowProductConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesSingaporePublished on September 07, 2017Cite: “House at Namly Place / Designshop” 07 Sep 2017.

Plenish Doing Well in Indiana

first_img Facebook Twitter Tegeder said Plenish™  acres will be up in 2013 and are likely to increase even more in the years to come, “We are waiting for EU approval and hope to ramp up for full production in 2014.” He expects Indiana contracted acreage to jump significantly in the 2014 growing season. He added that Indiana has been a great state to work in because of the support they have received from the Indiana Soybean Alliance. Facebook Twitter Previous articleAFBF President Talks Farm Bill during Indiana VisitNext article“If There Ain’t No Beer in Heaven…” Gary Truitt SHARE By Gary Truitt – Aug 31, 2012 This year was the first that Indiana soybean growers participated in the Plenish™  project with Pioneer and ADM.  The program has been expanded for 2013. Plenish is a high oleic soybean oil that is taking the food industry by storm. As a result, the number of acres that will be contracted for production will increase in 2013. Dave Tegeder, Sr. Marketing Manager with the Plenish™  project, told HAT that despite the drought they are very pleased with the soybean production in Indiana this year, “Indiana soybean growers have really stepped up and worked with us and ADM on this new platform.”  He said, despite the drought and reduced yields, they will have enough soybeans to meet their needs.  The soybeans are processed at the ADM plant in Clinton County, thus most of the acres are in the west central part of the state. Contracted acre goals for 2013 will be increased, according to Pioneer.center_img SHARE Read more about Plenish™   here.[audio:https://www.hoosieragtoday.com//wp-content/uploads//2012/08/plenishwrap.mp3|titles=Plenish Doing Well in Indiana]Audio Playerhttps://media.blubrry.com/hoosieragtoday/p/www.hoosieragtoday.com//wp-content/uploads//2012/08/plenishwrap.mp300:0000:0000:00Use Up/Down Arrow keys to increase or decrease volume.Podcast: Play in new window | Download | EmbedSubscribe: RSS Plenish Doing Well in Indiana Home Indiana Agriculture News Plenish Doing Well in Indiana Tegeder says the oil produced is healthier and works extremely well in the food processing industry, “Processors really like it because it has a longer fry life and actually makes the food taste better.” In commercial trials, processors have reported many other benefits that make Plenish™ very desirable to use in production.

Sarah Jane will speak up for mental health

first_imgRELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR Sarah Jane Hennelly.SOCIAL Democrats chairperson Sarah Jane Hennelly, has been appointed to the role of party’s national spokesperson for mental health and wellbeing.She has an extensive background in mental health having worked in research and community based mental health groups across the city for several years. A graduate of European Politics and Law from the University of Limerick, the 28 year-old Castletroy woman sees mental health as a major national issue with Limerick City in particular experiencing ongoing challenges.“Our government spends half the recommended amount on mental health. Aside from the Connecting for Life Strategy, which focuses on crises and suicide, we have no national mental health strategy in this State. That is a true reflection of the value placed by government and the large parties on mental health.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up “Without a blueprint things are aimless and chaotic. That is not good enough in this area or any area for that matter,” she declared.“In 2015, we held a community policy night on mental health, well-being and suicide in Limerick City. The ideas that were formed during this event were the basis for the Social Democrats 2016 Mental Health Policy.“Over the next number of months, we plan on holding another policy night. This will allow the people of Limerick to once again influence national policy from the ground up on an issue that is close to all of us, from Limerick City to Dáil Éireann.“I am confident that the work we do on the ground in the next few months in Limerick City — getting more voices to feed into how we deal with mental health – will serve as the basis of the State’s mental health strategy nationally.“The Social Democrats and especially our co-leader Roisin Shortall have heavily influenced national policy to-date, I believe this will be no different, but we require input and engagement with people in every walk of life,” she said.by Alan [email protected] Previous articleFunds no barrier to M20 motorwayNext articleOscar winning Swedish comedy opens Millennium Film Club Alan Jacqueshttp://www.limerickpost.ie Print Limerick Ladies National Football League opener to be streamed live Limerick’s National Camogie League double header to be streamed live Facebook Linkedin WATCH: “Everyone is fighting so hard to get on” – Pat Ryan on competitive camogie squads Twittercenter_img Advertisement WhatsApp TAGSlimerickMental HealthSarah Jane HennellySocial Democrats Predictions on the future of learning discussed at Limerick Lifelong Learning Festival Email Limerick Artist ‘Willzee’ releases new Music Video – “A Dream of Peace” NewsLocal NewsSarah Jane will speak up for mental healthBy Alan Jacques – October 13, 2017 1238 Billy Lee names strong Limerick side to take on Wicklow in crucial Division 3 clashlast_img read more

Sexual segregation in distribution, diet and trophic level of seabirds: insights from stable isotope analysis

first_imgConsiderable attention has focused on inter- and intraspecific variation in trophic niches of marine predators. Although this has revealed evidence for sexual segregation in distribution in some species, few studies have been able to address sex-related dietary specialisation. Stable isotope analysis of blood cells collected from albatrosses and petrels at South Georgia during chick-rearing indicated a difference in δ13C, suggesting that females fed to the north of males, only in two species with male-biased sexual size dimorphism; in no species did sexes differ in trophic level (δ15N). Based on a wider review, significant differences between sexes in isotope signatures were much more common in seabirds during the pre-laying or breeding than the nonbreeding period, presumably reflecting greater between-sex partitioning of resources when foraging ranges are more constrained and competition is greater. Sex differences, or their absence, were usually consistent across successive stages during the pre-laying and breeding periods, but not necessarily year-round nor between populations. Significant differences in isotope signatures between males and females were extremely rare in monomorphic species, suggesting a link between sexual size dimorphism and segregation in diet or distribution. Among the Southern Ocean albatrosses, sex differences in δ13C suggested the underlying mechanism was related to habitat specialisation, whereas in other size-dimorphic taxa (both male- and female-biased), sex differences were more common in δ15N than δ13C and therefore more consistent with size-mediated competitive exclusion or dietary specialisation.last_img read more

TPO pushes back against government plans for whole-sector ombudsman

first_imgHome » News » TPO pushes back against government plans for whole-sector ombudsman previous nextRegulation & LawTPO pushes back against government plans for whole-sector ombudsmanToday’s annual report from The Property Ombudsman says it believes separate redress schemes for both private and social sectors are best way forward.Nigel Lewis17th May 20180769 Views The Property Ombudsman disagrees with the government’s position that the housing sector should be policed by a single ombudsman, suggesting instead that the role is divided into two between its social and private halves.The comments are made in TPO’s annual report published today in which Ombudsman Katrine Sporle (pictured above, left, with Chair Diana Warwick) says: “We believe that there should be only one Ombudsman per sector [which would be] better placed to set best practice, raise standards in the industry and clarify the position of consumers.“We cannot see an Ombudsman being effective for the whole of the private and social sector.”This will hold sway in Whitehall – TPO is the largest property ombudsman by a long chalk and now claims to have more than 95% of sales and 85% of letting agents in the UK signed up.And it is only one of two services left following the withdrawal of Ombudsman Services: Property in February.TPO’s report also reveals that the number of complaints about letting agents from landlords and tenants soared during 2017, rising by 11%, while the number of sales agent complaints plummeted by 16%.This reflects the seismic shifts taking place in the property market as more and more people rent rather than own.TPO also awarded a lot more cash to consumers last year, up 11% to £1.36 million.The Ombudsman also recently signed up to use chatbot service Yomdel on its website, which helped dramatically increase the number of consumers contacting it, rising by 68% during 2017, while overall the number of complaints dealt with by TPO increased by 3%.Katrine Sporle Katrine Sporle CBE letting agents ombudsman sales agents The Property Ombudsman TPO May 17, 2018Nigel LewisWhat’s your opinion?

Jordanian Naval Force receives RB-Ms from the US

first_img View post tag: RB-M View post tag: Fincantieri Marinette Marine Photo: Photo: Vigor Marine Share this article View post tag: Vigor Marine View post tag: Jordanian Navy The Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan has accepted delivery of two response boat-mediums (RB-Ms) under a foreign military sale arranged through the US Department of Homeland Security.RB-Ms were delivered by Fincantieri Marinette Marine and Vigor, with Fincantieri acting as prime contractor and program manager for the project, and Vigor building the vessels at its Seattle facility.The Royal Jordanian Naval Force (RJNF) plans to operate the boats from its base in Aqaba, Jordan.The 13.6-meter vessels are capable of a top speed of more than 42 knots and have a mission duration of up to 24 hours. The RB-Ms will enhance the RJNF’s ability to perform security missions, search and rescue, and drug interdiction along with visit, board, search and seizure operations (VBSS).Key features on the vessels include FLIR night vision technology, push knees for added control with VBSS operations, and a composite aft deck hardtop for crew comfort. The vessels continue to utilize shock mitigating seats, Vector-Stick Integrated Control Systems, and port and starboard rescue wells for water retrievals.“We are pleased to lead this effort as the prime contractor and to team with Vigor to provide the US government and our Coast Guard a means through which to strengthen security cooperation worldwide,” said Rick Hunt, president of Fincantieri Marinette Marine.Vigor previously delivered 174 similar boats to the US Coast Guard and is completing six additional boats to Bahrain.last_img read more

Hoboken mayor veto’s ordinance to appoint Rent Leveling and Stabilization Board…

first_imgHOBOKEN – Mayor Ravi Bhalla has vetoed an ordinance by the City Council which would have allowed them to transfer appointment authority of three full Rent Leveling and Stabilization Board members and two alternates from the mayor to the City Council.The quasi-judicial nine-member Rent Leveling and Stabilization Board is comprised of residents. It hears cases such as those of landlords who are applying for a hardship exception to the city’s long-term rent control laws, which keep rent increases to a few percent each year.The veto came after the city’s legal department issued a memo stating that the city council’s proposed actions would violate New Jersey state statutes and the Faulkner Act. After receiving this memo, the council disputed the legal opinion and voted to approve the ordinance on second reading on March 15 with a 6-3 vote.“First, the ordinance is unlawful for the reasons stated in the attached legal opinion from the Law Department,” Bhalla said in his March 23 veto statement. “Second, even if the City Council had lawful authority to transfer appointment authority of board members of the Rent Leveling & Stabilization Board away from this office and to the City Council, the City Council has failed to articulate a compelling public policy purpose in support of the ordinance,”Bhalla charged that the ordinance was driven by the council’s dissatisfaction over the fact that two political allies of its leadership were not re-appointed to the board.“While the City Council has made unconvincing attempts to couch their purpose in policy terms, it is strikingly obvious that their conduct is driven by politics, not good government.”Both former board members Michael Lenz and Cheryll Fallick, who were supporters of Councilwoman Jen Giattino’s mayoral run, were not reappointed by Bhalla. Instead the mayor has nominated Warren Hall and Heath Urban. The council has not voted yet on whether to confirm their appointments.Last month, Bhalla vetoed another measure by the council which would allow a referendum be placed on the November ballot enabling voters to choose whether to reinstate runoff elections. The council overrode that veto with a 7-2 vote.The council needs a minimum of a 6-3 vote to override a mayoral veto. ×last_img read more
