This building has been designed after the request, of two sisters, for a bioclimatic house where to live together and independent at the same time. So the project focuses on these clients’ needs. The building plot enjoys views over the Collserola mount, and it is on a uniform and deep pitch, (30%).Save this picture!© Adrià GoulaAfter the bioclimatic study of this exact point we decided the strategies of the project, in order to maximise the environmental and thermal performance, and to follow the equivalent demands to a passive house. We improve the comfort of the building by:- Compaction.- Capture and sun protection.- Thermal resistance.- Cross ventilation.Save this picture!© Adrià GoulaOn the other hand, as we did not want to modify the original plot and to better adapt to the topography of the land, our project was founded on only two retaining walls which are parallel with the contour lines. These retaining walls support a lightweight wooden construction. This wooden frame is formed by five wall framings which are perpendicular to the concrete walls. This five framing walls organize the different spaces of the house with the idea that each women could have two rooms, a dining and a sitting room, a bathroom, a kitchen and a terrace to implement the main rooms.Save this picture!Floor PlanThis compact construction and of a big thermal resistance, frame the landscape facing south through the fully grazed façade that, in addition to a lineal roof-light for the rooms on the north side, works as a sun capture during the cold seasons.Save this picture!© Adrià GoulaThe savings on heating (and air conditioning) have been possible due to the sun protection on the windows, the wooden ventilated façade, the use of a vegetal roof which provides a big thermal resistance and landscape value; and also a design that has paid particular attention to the natural ventilation, especially important in summer. The demand on heating has been under the limits of a passivhaus (15 Kwh/m2a), and it has been solved with just a fire place for each person.

U.S. Pork Producers Not Competitive on the World Market

first_img Surging pork exports from the European Union to Asia are disrupting exports of the same products from the United States. The European Union last year surpassed the United States as the world’s leading exporter of pork, according to a recent USDA report.  EU pork exports to all destinations increased seven percent from 2013 to 2015, while total U.S. shipments only increased one percent. Since 2014, EU pork exports to China rose nearly 82 percent. While Japan, Korea and China accounted for nearly 38 percent of total EU pork shipments in 2013, those markets rose to nearly 56 percent in 2015. U.S. pork exports to Japan, Korea and China declined five percent during the 2013 to 2015 period and also accounted for a smaller portion of total U.S. shipments.As a result, EU expanded not only shipments to key Asian markets in terms of volumes, but also market share.Source: NAFB News Service SHARE Home Indiana Agriculture News U.S. Pork Producers Not Competitive on the World Market Facebook Twitter U.S. Pork Producers Not Competitive on the World Market Facebook Twitter By Hoosier Ag Today – Apr 14, 2016 SHARE Previous articleClosing CommentsNext articleSenators Reach Deal to Act on Comprehensive Energy Bill Hoosier Ag Todaylast_img read more

Tracking Family Living Costs in Your Farming Operation

first_img By Gary Truitt – Sep 7, 2016 Home Indiana Agriculture News Tracking Family Living Costs in Your Farming Operation Tracking Family Living Costs in Your Farming Operation SHARE Facebook Twitter Tracking Family Living Costs in Your Farming OperationEveryone is trying to reduce costs in their farming operation, but some costs are easier to track than others. Vince Bailey, with Farm Credit Mid-America, says family living costs may be one item that gets overlooked, “One reason for that is because it is something you don’t put on your tax return. These costs are something you don’t normally track.”Baily says finding a way to track and manage family living costs is not an easy thing to do. “Those can be very difficult conversations to have,” he said. “A good way to track these costs is to separate them from the rest of the operation. Just cut one check per month for family living costs and put it into a separate account. That gives your family a finite number of dollars to live from.”  He added that small expenses add up over time and become problematic if they aren’t tracked appropriately. Taking the relatively simple step of cutting your family a monthly check can have a big impact on both controlling your budget and on your operation’s balance sheet.For additional tips and financial insights, visit www.e-farmcredit.com.

The corporation was formed following the closure and sale of The Alhambra, a Front Porch retirement community to continue The Alhambra’s philanthropic not-for-profit heritage of meeting needs through its founding parent California Lutheran Homes and sustained through Front Porch.“Technology advancements have and are continuing to reshape all our lives,” said Mort Swales, board chair, Alhambra Services Corporation. “The Front Porch Center for Innovation and Wellbeing is a nationally-recognized innovation leader that has been instrumental in facilitating the development and application of technologies in senior services that is improving life of older adults.

This work continues including the completion of a tele-mental health program and an emerging partnership to integrate technology into a senior wellness program.Earlier this year, the University of the Pacific was awarded a grant from the California Wellness Foundation to deploy a tele-dentistry demonstration initiative that will provide low-income seniors with first level dental care at Front Porch affordable housing communities and other senior-serving organizations. The Front Porch Center is supporting the pilot and tracking the results.“In order for the Center to scale and support the development of sustainable models that could be replicated in other communities and form new partnerships, additional staffing is necessary to build the capacity of the Center,” said Davis Park, Front Porch Center director. “We are grateful to the Alhambra Services Corporation in meeting that need.”About the Front Porch Center for Innovation and WellbeingThe Front Porch Center for Innovation and Wellbeing is part of Front Porch, one of Southern California’s largest not?for?profit providers of retirement living communities and affordable housing.

The suggestion was made before a division bench of Justice SS Shinde and Justice Manish Pitale that sought to know if any accused booked under the stringent Unlawful Activities (Prevention) Act (UAPA) in India was granted bail on medical grounds. Advocate Anand Grover appearing on behalf of Rao said that while there was a judgment of the Guwahati High Court that fits the current circumstances perfectly, the court could satisfy itself by first granting Rao temporary bail for at least three months. “He can report to authority the court deems fit because it is also in the prosecution’s interest that he be fit for trial.” Rao has been in a private hospital for over a month and the court finally received a report from the hospital that he was fit for discharge and capable of self-care. He however continues to be on medication for various illnesses which include a kidney disease and hypertension among others. Grover submitted that he was not disputing the report and keeping in Hospital further would continue to burden the ex-chequer, however the Taloja Jail Hospital, where he would be shifted if he wasn’t granted bail did not have the infrastructure to handle a severaly ill patient like him. J Manish Pitale then sought a short affidavit from Rao’s counsels on why he could not be kept in Taloja prison, specifically dealing with Nanavati Super Speciality Hospital’s observations that Rao was fit for discharge. “You need to state on oath your criticism for Taloja Prison if you want the court to consider it.” Justice Shinde added. During the hearing Grover said he had just one law point to argue. He cited a Guwahati High Court bail order in Redaul Hussain Khan vs NIA to say that the embargo on granting bail in the UAPA Act would not stop the court from granting bail on medical grounds under the Criminal Procedure Code. Section 43 D(5) of the UAPA Act puts an embargo on granting bail to an accused booked under the Act if the court come to the conclusion that a prima facie case is made out. Grover, however, submitted that the court could still grant bail to an accused under section 437(1) of the CrPC. Justice Shinde sought to know if the order, and thereby the observation of the Guwahati HC had been challenged. Advocate Paras Nath from the defence’s team, who had found the judgment, informed the Bombay High Court that the order was challenged by the accused in the Supreme Court but the petition was withdrawn and therefore the conditions for bail on medical grounds still stand. When the bench wanted to know if Rao is managing to eat food, his nephew N Venugopal informed the court that while his uncle could eat, only yesterday he was suffering from pains in his chest. “The doctors said it could be acidity and have given him treatment for it,” however he added that they suspect there is an issue with the heart valve. Senior Advocate Indira Jaising who is arguing another petition filed by Rao’s wife P Hemlatha for a declaration that Rao’s fundamental rights to health, dignity and life, and thereby his rights, under Article 21 of the Constitution of India have been violated by prison officials, will continue her arguments tomorrow.

Spate of attacks reported on Cowley Road

first_imgOxford students have been warned against walking home alone at night following a spate of attacks on students in the Cowley area.Recent incidents involve a physical assault on a female student by South Parks, as well as a man approaching students who are on their own late at night by Cheney Lane.Two men were also reportedly waiting outside St Hilda’s College last Saturday, asking students leaving the ball to get in their car.In an email to students, St Hilda’s Dean Lorraine Wild wrote: “We have been alerted to an assault on a female student in the South Parks area last week during which she was kicked and punched to the ground.“There have been two other incidents in the area around Cheney Lane in which a man has been reported as approaching lone students late at night.”She warned students to be “extra vigilant” and to “try not to walk home alone late at night.”A female student was approached at 4am by two men in a silver car on Cowley Place, shortly after leaving the St Hilda’s Ball. She ran back inside to the St Hilda’s porters’ lodge, but the men had already driven off when the porter went out to find them.The student described the men as “leery” and told Cherwell that she would have felt “vulnerable” without the porters’ lodge so near.She said: “I’m surprised that it happened here, because back home I’d probably be more careful, but in Oxford you forget that there’s a wider world beyond the colleges.“It’s shocking to think that despite being lucky enough to run back to a college, something scary like this can happen.”Advice on the University website recommends that students “plan your night before you go out” and “never walk home alone” in the dark.last_img read more
