The structure consists of double skin system of the main frame and a surface of aluminum panels. To reduce the amount of radiant heat in summer, west and south sides are designed without openings and the width of space in the double skin of walls and roof on west and south are wider. This system controls the circulation of warm air so that it rises through the inside of double skin and extracted through louvers.

The external aluminum panes covering the volume vary to the louvers according to changes in size and gradual fragmentation. The angles, widths and lengths of panels are adjusted and louver aperture rations are determined according to the location of each room opening, loft opening, flue window and ventilation and air-conditioning outlets. Save this picture!The house is located in a rural area near Ise Bay. There are vast rice fields around the site. During rice planting season, the fields are bathed in water and in autumn, harvesting season gives fields a golden glow. The area is also subject to high rainfall and frequent flooding. Save this picture!The volume is elevated on a mound and rests on a green foundation. The site demanded a plan in which this foundation could protect the building from flooding and also allow the view of countryside to blend in harmoniously with green grass planted on the foundation. The entire structure consists of two volumes of different sizes. The interior spaces are formed so that they connect with the exterior by the mutual displacement of volumes and by penetration of the horizontal and vertical voids. The void vertically penetrating the small volume on east faces children’s room and bathroom on the first floor and family room on the second floor. The horizontal void perpendicular to it is the first floor terrace connecting to dining room. Light, wind and landscape enter deeply into the building through these two voids. Save this picture!The challenge of capturing rich exterior landscape within while also maintaining the autonomy of interior spaces is tackled by examining various methods available for providing openings to the house. When two steel doors in dining and entrance are opened, pastoral landscape bursts into the building through terrace extending to rice fields. Aspects of the countryside showing from season to season, natural lights shining in the void from above and also sounds of footsteps from paves gravel impact the void space with various aspects. From living room to family space, soft light from a long slit of the roof engulfs the internal space. An expressive atmosphere is created by the changing of light intensity according to the change of sunlight and passage of time. An abstract external courtyard between aluminum panels can be viewed from family space. Save this picture!A disproportionate amount of lighting is placed on interior walls on west. The lights appear as countless segmented streams, and by randomly fragmenting the light, the non-uniformity further amplified the sense of fluidity and abstractness in the space producing a space with an expressive dramatic feel.Save this picture!first floor planProject gallerySee allShow less“From Suburb to City” International Summer Academy 2012ArticlesPassive House International Design CompetitionArticles Share 2011 Year:  Parametric Fragment / Takashi Yamaguchi & AssociatesSave this projectSaveParametric Fragment / Takashi Yamaguchi & Associateslast_img read more

These adverts are running across channels including Facebook, Instagram, and Snapchat. They encourage people to sign up to host their own Coffee Morning to fundraise for Macmillan via the charity’s website.This is the second year in a row that Macmillan has worked with Automated Creative, which was founded in 2018 by Tom Ollerton, former innovation director at social media agency We Are Social. The agency’s commercial clients include GSK, BOSE and Unilever.Continual optimisationHaving audited Macmillan’s brand assets and content the platform’s Creator tool converts them to digital advertising formats and optimises them continually at scale, based on user feedback and results. In this way it automatically determines the visuals and copy that have the greatest impact on the target audience.The recruitment campaign is designed to reduce the charity’s cost per acquisition (CPA).The World’s Biggest Coffee Morning is Macmillan’s biggest fundraising event which sees more than 200,000 people take part in a day “dedicated to cuppas and cakes”. Last year the campaign raised almost £27 million.Content working harderImogen Stead, senior marketing manager, Macmillan Cancer Support commented: “Automated Creative’s proven results in making content work harder to drive traffic and conversions were impossible to ignore.“I’m confident that working with a team who understands the importance of creative as well as the opportunities that technology presents will help us reach more people and make this year’s World’s Biggest Coffee Morning a huge success, enabling us to continue to support people living with cancer.”Automated Creative’s Tom Ollerton said that their platform was one way of improving the way in which organisations attract people’s attention when face with a huge quantity of content.He added: “The term ‘artificial intelligence’ may sound futuristic and a bit of a gamble but in fact it’s the exact opposite. Our technology can help ensure that every word and image will have the maximum possible impact and offer the best value for money.” Shiny New Object PodcastTom Ollerton expands on advertising and AI and related issues in his Shiny New Object Podcast.center_img AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis26 Howard Lake | 10 September 2019 | News Tagged with: artificial intelligence fundraising events Macmillan Cancer Support Advertisementlast_img read more

Debbie Stabenow, Ranking Member of the Senate Ag Committee, requested the report back in February.“It found deep regional inequities with southern farmers benefitting significantly more compared to other regions,” she said. “Eight of the nine top states with the highest payments per acre were in the South, and on average southern farmers received higher payments compared to individual farmers in any other region.”Midwestern states received more dollars in total than the south because there are more individual farms in the Midwest than the South.“Whether or not farmers break even or go into debt is not based on how much their state receives as a whole,” said Stabenow. “All farmers’ profitability and viability is based on how much they are getting per acre on their individual farm.”Less than 10 percent of the payments went to farms that produced specialty crops, dairy or hogs. Stabenow also said that USDA’s approach to MFP significantly benefited large farms over smaller farms.“The USDA doubled the maximum payment that farmers could receive beyond the Farm Bill and put in place $125,000 per farmer being eligible to receive payment, but did nothing to help small and beginning farmers,” she added. “The top 1.3 percent of payment recipients received an additional $519 million.”The full report can be found here.

TxDOT: Distracted driving still a problem

first_img WhatsApp Pinterest Twitter Facebook WhatsApp TxDOT: Distracted driving still a problem Local News TxDOT logo Despite a state law that bans texting and driving, distracted driving continues to be a problem, a Texas Department of Transportation news release stated. The release stated that one in five crashes in Texas involves distracted driving. “Our message is no longer just a public safety suggestion to urge Texans to avoid distraction while operating a vehicle — it is to remind them of the law that now forbids such activity,” TxDOT Executive Director James Bass said in a prepared statement. “One life lost is one too many, and distracted driving is completely preventable.” The number of crashes due to distracted driving in Texas has decreased 6% from the 12-month period before and after the texting-while-driving ban took effect on Sept. 1, 2017, the release stated. TxDOT’s “Heads Up” campaign, which was started in 2018, began Tuesday in San Antonio with the return of a 12-city, virtual reality experience tour in collaboration with AT&T “It Can Wait” to educate Texans about the dangers of driving while being distracted, the release detailed.center_img TAGS  By Digital AIM Web Support – February 24, 2021 Twitter Facebook Pinterest Previous articleMCHS CFO appointed interim CEONext articleEffortless Summertime Entertaining Digital AIM Web Supportlast_img read more

Tompkins dedicates day for bullying prevention

first_img Your government news is made possible with support from:center_img (Update 12:15 p.m. Monday, Oct. 7) — The rally Monday that was originally scheduled to take place at the Bernie Milton Pavilion has been moved indoors to the GIAC Gym, 301 W. Court St., Ithaca. TOMPKINS COUNTY, N.Y. — Monday, Oct. 7, has been designated “Bullying Prevention Day” in Tompkins County. The dedicated day will highlight the need for local schools and organizations to work together to prevent bullying, an issue that impacts about 20% of high school students nationally.Local residents will “#BlueUp” Monday as part of the World Day of Bullying Prevention. To mark the day, the Greater Ithaca Activities Center, The Sophie Fund and the Tompkins County Bullying Prevention Task Force are organizing a rally for 4:30 p.m. Monday, Oct. 7 at the Bernie Milton Pavilion on the Ithaca Commons. (See update)The day was designated with a proclamation Tuesday at Tompkins County Legislature. Kate Shanks-Booth, director of youth services in Tompkins County, said in a news release that a day dedicated to bullying prevention is an important step forward.“The Tompkins County Youth Services Department deals with all the different municipalities and school districts that are encompassed within Tompkins County,” she said in a news release. “We hear from our partners at every level that bullying is a major area of concern, as the physical and emotional trauma experienced during these events lasts a lifetime. We are doing our part, working with Tompkins County Bullying Prevention Task Force and other local partners to ensure that every youth in Tompkins County can thrive in life, work, and school without the negative impacts of all types of bullying.” Kelsey O’Connor • Related: Task force brings community together to address bullying in local schoolsThe Tompkins County Bullying Prevention Task Force includes government agencies, community organizations, parents and representatives from six school districts. It was formed this year to help curb bullying in local schools. It’s an issue that impacts about 19% of high school students nationally, and about 21.7% in New York, according to data from the National Youth Risk Behavior survey. According to an earlier report in The Ithaca Voice, the task force found that over the 2017–18 school year in Tompkins schools, there were 109 reports of discrimination, harassment and bullying and 20 incidents of cyberbullying.Being bullied by peers is the most common form of abuse children face, and it can have long-term mental and physical health effects. At the same time, many children suffer in silence because they are reluctant to tell their parents or teachers, studies show.The task force is calling on local schools to consider organizing activities Monday to observe Bullying Prevention Day, such as skits, speakers, assemblies, and other events to raise awareness about bullying.In a news release from Task Force, Celia Clement, a longtime social worker and member of the Task Force, said students need to be the driving force in creating an inclusive culture. “We anticipate that providing these opportunities for education and dialogue will serve as a catalyst for students to take ownership in initiating Upstander leadership programs that will be responsive to the unique needs of their schools.”An upstander is someone who does not stand by and will speak up to support a person who is being attacked or bullied. The Task Force sent materials to schools with ideas for activities and resources to encourage children to be upstanders.

OTM ejects ‘baffled’ estate agency just two months after joining

first_imgHome » News » Agencies & People » OTM ejects ‘baffled’ estate agency just two months after joining previous nextAgencies & PeopleOTM ejects ‘baffled’ estate agency just two months after joiningThe portal has told the agency it can no longer list on its platform because Eazy Agent ‘doesn’t do its own on-site valuations’, an accusation it denies.The Negotiator20th August 202001,807 Views New online firm Eazy Agent claims it’s been unfairly kicked off OnTheMarket (OTM) despite not flouting any of the platform’s rules.The Leeds-based agent – profiled earlier this week on The Negotiator – has been given a month’s notice in an email sent to co-founder Lee Farrell (pictured, above), which says, ‘Clients should do their own on-site valuations. It is of our understanding that Eazy Agent doesn’t offer this as part of their service.’However, Farrell insists it does do its own valuations but claims that, like most agents, it has been doing virtual valuations during Covid. He now plans to get legal advice. “I’ve looked through the Ts and Cs and can’t find a reason why we’d be removed,” says Farrell.A spokesperson for OnTheMarket says: “All estate and letting agent customers must meet the full-service eligibility criteria if they are to advertise and remain doing so with OnTheMarket.”Pay now serviceEazy Agent claims to have launched a UK-first: a ‘pay now’ service, covering everything from legal fees to a removal van and even a dog sitter on moving day for £1,749.It also has a £249 basic service which it promotes as a great budget alternative to traditional high street agents. The new firm covers all of the UK and often works with third parties for services such as photography and viewings.Says Farrell: “I got a message through our live chat from someone telling me that pressure was being put on the platform by a company threatening that they would leave if we didn’t. I took it with a pinch of salt but then got the email giving us notice.” OTM declined to comment when this was put to them.Three completionsSince launching eight weeks ago, the company has had three completions and, after this week’s publicity, had its highest daily number of site visits and 14 leads. He’s now decided to capitalise on the story and has updated the logo with ‘BANNED’ and the caption, ‘The brand they want to ban. Join the revolution.’Adds Farrell: “It won’t stop us doing what we’re doing as we’ve shown it can be done. It just makes me more determined.”Farrell is also a director of another property website, which is a portal which offers vendors the ability to sell their home via a Pattison auction.

Advertising watchdog warns ‘Marie Celeste’ portals over old property listings

first_imgTwo property portals in Manchester have been censured by the Advertising Standards for advertising properties that, a member of the public complained, did not exist.The property, a four-bedroom detached in the Devon town of Rackenford, was listed in 2017 by the vendor on both and with its full address and details of how to arrange either a virtual or face-to-face viewing.A house hunter complained to the ASA in July last year that after making enquiries, it turned out the property was not for sale – unsurprisingly.The ASA tried to contact both property portals which did not respond, and the ASA now says it is worried by both website’s disregard for the advertising code and that the adverts were ‘misleading’.“We understood that the property had not been on the market since 2017 and remained on the website despite several requests to remove it. We therefore concluded that the ad was misleading,” its adjudication says.Track downThe ASA said it could not track down the people behind both sites, but The Negotiator has established that both were sister sites to Houser, whose general manager until 2017 – when the house ad was first listed – was Adnan Arif.He is a tech entrepreneur of Pakistani origin who launched Houser in the UK during 2014/5 and persuaded several thousand agents to list on the site and launched regional sister sites.Since 2017 the sites including Houser and have become digital ‘Marie Celestes’ – digitally afloat but with no one in charge or returning emails. The ASA says it has told the portals not to advertise properties in this way again and subsequently both have been taken down, displaying ‘temporarily unavailable’ messages.marie celeste listings Houser advertising standards authority ASA January 20, 2021Nigel LewisWhat’s your opinion?

It was first identified in Great Britain.So far the new strain is not proving to be more deadly or causing more severe infections, but it is far easier to spread and has now been found in Indiana. For that reason, State Health Commissioner Dr. Kristina Box says it’s more important than ever for Hoosiers to continue to wear their masks, practice social distancing, maintain good hygiene and get vaccinated when they are eligible.
