This residence for a couple and their two children is located in a housing development dotted with lots that have remained unsold for many years. The design process began with the question of whether it might be possible to maintain a certain degree of privacy on this particular lot while at the same time creating a sense of connection with the surroundings. Could we somehow dissolve the property line by deliberately entwining green areas throughout the lot? That was the image in our minds when we began.Save this picture!© Katsuya. TairaFirst, rather than constructing a wall around the property, we decided to try creating a place-based boundary similar to a tree-lined street between the house and the rest of the property, and by doing so to evoke a feeling of generosity toward the surrounding area. We ended up constructing a ring shaped hill with a path around the top. This maintained privacy while loosely connecting the property with its surroundings. The house is situated within this ring. In two places, the ring pierces the residence, connecting it to the exterior. The approach to the residence is via the path around the ring-shaped hill.Save this picture!© Katsuya. TairaSave this picture!© Katsuya. TairaThe building is divided into four volumes: the living room, the children’s room, the kitchen, and the bathroom and master bedroom, with the dining room at the center. Separating the various parts of the home in this way allows each section to be connected to the exterior, with an outdoor space inside the ring attached to each. The plan is to eventually plant gardens in each of these spaces to create a variety of views from inside the house. The area between the ring and the property line will also be landscaped, further changing the scenery both inside and out and creating a space that is open to the surrounding environment.Save this picture!© Katsuya.

The money raised will enable us to help more families be together when they really need to be, by providing dedicated accommodation close to the hospital. This is a vital resource, enabling parents and carers to be at their child’s bedside within minutes, at whatever time of the day and night. We couldn’t be happier to be involved in this campaign and hope everyone enjoys the advertisement and supports this special partnership.” The 2016 John Lewis Christmas advert includes support for The Wildlife Trusts The advert tells the story of Dave, a hard-working and devoted dad, who comes up with an ingenious plan to make sure he can be with his family for Christmas. It is told through a song, ‘The Greatest Gift For Christmas Is Me’, voiced by British actor James Corden.How does the ad campaign raise funds for GOSH?The advert itself of course does not raise funds and there is no call to give to the charity within it. It is the related products for the ad that will generate income for the charity. All profits from the sale of the specially created Gingerbread ‘Dave’ (£1) and The Greatest Gift film animation kit (£5) will go to Great Ormond Street Hospital Children’s Charity.From 21st November, customers will also have the option to make a 20p donation at the till, or more if specifically requested, with all the proceeds going to the charity.This is the first time full colour 3D printed faces have ever been used in animation production in the UK.Sarah Kilmartin, Head of Broadcast Comms, Sainsbury’s, said:“Christmas is for Sharing has been a constant theme for our Christmas ads for the last three years and it continues to have real resonance for our customers… Supporting Great Ormond Street Hospital Children’s Charity felt like a very natural extension of this as we know that the families at the hospital face more difficulties than most to spend time together as a family, at Christmas and all year round.” Advertisement  267 total views,  1 views today About Howard Lake Howard Lake is a digital fundraising entrepreneur.

Ag Economy Barometer Shows Dip in Sentiment in February

first_img Ag Economy Barometer Shows Dip in Sentiment in February SHARE By Andy Eubank – Mar 5, 2019 SHARE Facebook Twitter Home Indiana Agriculture News Ag Economy Barometer Shows Dip in Sentiment in February Facebook Twitter Ag Economy Barometer Shows Dip in Sentiment in FebruaryThe new Purdue and CME Group report measuring the sentiment about the ag economy has been released, and the February barometer is down seven points from January to a reading of 136. Both the Index of Current Conditions and the Index of Future Expectations declined, but the current conditions index was most significant.Jim Mintert, the barometer’s principal investigator and director of the Purdue Center for Commercial Agriculture said fewer farmers said they expect their operation to grow in the future compared to their statements a year ago. He says that could be a sign of increasing financial stress.Considering the current trade war with China and soybean price erosion, Mintert says producers again were asked how their 2019 soybean planted acres might compare to last year.“We focused on producers who told us they planted soybeans last year,” he said. “Twenty-three percent of those producers indicated they plan to reduce their soybean acreage in 2019 vs. 2018. We followed up those producers and asked by how much they plan to reduce their soybean acreage, and two-thirds of them said that they plan to reduce soybean acreage by more than ten percent, a rather substantial decline in acreage.”Mintert says there were revealing responses when farmers were asked what kind of farm operation growth they expected in the next five years.“Fifty percent of the producers in our survey said they have no plans to grow or might actually reduce the size of their farming operation,” he said. “On the other hand though, there is a group of people who are planning fairly rapid growth. Thirty-seven percent said that they plan to increase the size of their operation on an annual basis of five percent or more, and importantly, five percent of those producers said they actually plan to increase the size of their operation by more than fifteen percent per year, very rapid growth plans on the part of those farming operations.”In the new barometer, producers were slightly more optimistic about evaluating farmland as a long-term investment and the future growth of agricultural exports. They do remain concerned about risk with marketing risk the most critical to their farming operation.Four hundred producers are surveyed each month, and the full report is here.

Russell Group unis still excluding poorer students

first_imgIn addition to access concerns, the report showed how Russell Group students were relatively more likely than those at post-1992 institutions to have wanted a university place “for the experience”, as opposed to “to gain qualifications” or “improve [their] chances of getting a job.” While only 23% of post-1992 university students reported being in it “for the experience,” 35% from Russell Group members said that this was a factor behind their university attendence.And in spite of the academic prowess of the Russell Group universities, only 62% of students compared to 73% in post-1992 institutions said that they had applied “to gain qualifications.” Russell Group students were also less concerned about “improving [their] earning potential.”A third-year DPhil student said they recognised that the statistics reflected their own priorities at Oxford. “I was aware that doing a thesis would leave me with a lot of flexibility. I want to get the most out of the extra-curricular activities on offer, and my degree definitely comes second,” he said.Responding to the findings, Piat told Cherwell, “we are delighted that Russell Group students have indicated the highest levels of satisfaction with the quality of teaching and learning at their institutions and that the vast majority cited academic reputation as a key factor in their choice of university.” She added, “The report found that 89% of students at Russell Group universities rated the quality of teaching and learning as good or excellent, compared to a sector-wide average of 85%.”The NUS report also highlighted that while Russell Group physics students received more contact hours time that post-1992 universities, they lost out in communications and documentation degrees.“Students studying physical sciences and related subjects received 20 contact hours a week in pre-1992 universities and 15 hours a week in post-1992 universities,” the study stated, yet “students studying mass communications and documentation subjects received 7 contact hours a week in Russell Group universities compared with 14 hours a week in Post 1992 universities.” The Russell Group of universities is not doing enough to address the financial and accommodation-based concerns of prospective applicants from less privileged backgrounds, a report released this week by the National Union of Students (NUS) has revealed.The group of 20 leading UK universities, including Oxford and Cambridge, was shown to attract far fewer students who were concerned about their university being close to home (19% in contrast to 41% for former polytechnics which because universities in 1992), despite this concern being at the top of the agenda for applicants from the lowest socio-economic groups, D and E (parents who are unskilled manual and casual workers).53% of students from groups D and E reported choosing an institution based on its geographical proximity, against only a fifth of group A applicants (from a professional or managerial background).The Director of the Russell Group, Wendy Piat, declined to comment on these statistics, stating that the group “welcomes this study which will serve as a useful tool to help our institutions continue to improve the quality of education and support they provide.” In a press release last year, however, Piat wrote that she was “particularly determined to help to tackle the root cause of the problem of the under-representation of students from poorer backgrounds at Russell Group institutions.”Despite this, the report described a continuing trend that “students that attend Pre 1992 [former Polytechnics], and particularly Russell Group institutions, are significantly more likely to be from higher socio-economic groups.” The statistics come as Oxford processes the applications from thousands of prospective applicants for the 2009 intake, who have been targeted by a number of the University’s access schemes.These include the Oxford Access Scheme Ambassador Programme, which takes students from “schools with no history of sending applicants to Oxford University… through four years of residential and one day events leading up to university application.”Responding to the figures, one Magdalen classicist told Cherwell, “it seems ridiculous that our universities can’t get their act together over access. It’s a really important issue to me, and if all these resources we’re putting towards targeting less-well off schools aren’t paying off, we ought to have a serious rethink.”last_img read more

Press release: UK’s biggest road upgrade reaches half-way point

first_img Our amazing team has been working incredibly hard to deliver this upgraded A14, and most days we have up to 2,700 staff working across more than 20 miles to build the new roads and bridges that are needed, in addition to all of the environmental measures we are implementing. This is the biggest road building project currently taking place in the country and yet drivers will only see around a quarter of it from the existing road at present. Working on this epic project has been remarkable so far: from seeing the new road emerge as we moved earth into place for its foundations, to the wide array of bridges and structures being built, the fantastic discoveries of our archaeological team and the industry-leading work our environmental team is carrying out. We know drivers can be frustrated by roadworks, particularly when they’re in place for a long time, but we’re delighted to announce at this two-year anniversary that we’re on time and on budget, having completed more than 50% of the work, to get this new road opened for drivers by the end of 2020. Main construction on a project to upgrade 21 miles of the A14 between Cambridge and Huntingdon started on Monday 28 November 2016 and is on target to be completed by December 2020.Since work started, more than eight million working hours have gone into the project, and eight million cubic metres of earthworks have been moved across the site – equivalent to more than three Great Pyramids of Giza. Nine new bridges will have opened to traffic by the end of the year and construction is well under way on 25 more. Along the way, the project team has started delivering extensive protection for the environment and uncovered astonishing archaeological finds which shine new light on thousands of years of history.Project Director for the A14 Cambridge to Huntingdon improvement scheme David Bray said: Highways England is upgrading a 21-mile stretch of the A14 between Cambridge and Huntingdon to three lanes in each direction including a brand new 17-mile bypass south of Huntingdon, with four lanes in each direction between Bar Hill and Girton. The project, which includes 34 main bridges and structures, will add capacity, boost the local and national economy and cut up to 20 minutes off drivers’ journeys.center_img Since work started in November 2016, 80% of the 10 million cubic metres of material needed for the £1.5 billion project has been moved, with the spoil used for new earthworks and embankments. More than eight million construction hours have been worked, and the 750m long River Great Ouse Viaduct, with its 6,000 tonne steel structure, is 85% complete.The project team has worked hard to keep traffic flowing through the roadworks, leaving all lanes open to traffic during the day, with extra restrictions, when needed, in place overnight and at weekends. The free recovery service has also responded swiftly to every incident within the existing roadworks, recovering more than 700 broken-down vehicles, with 95% of these cleared within an hour, and 184 cleared within 30 minutes.The team has won eight industry awards for innovative working, including ‘Best Construction Project to Work On’ and a RoSPA Gold Health and Safety Award. The project is also the first of its type to be recognised as by the Considerate Construction Scheme as an ‘Ultra’ site, for the way the project is delivered.The project’s diverse workforce includes more than 100 apprentices and 63 graduates, in addition to 28 internships and two Groundwork outreach programmes.Some 250 archaeologists have been involved in the scheme, investigating 33 sites across 360 hectares. Their remarkable discoveries include 40 pottery kilns, 342 burials, a Roman camp, an abandoned Medieval village, rare Roman coins from the third century, and a variety of Ice Age animals, including a woolly mammoth from 130,000 years ago.Some 866,000 plants from 50 different species will be replanted alongside the new A14, with trees in keeping with those found locally including oak, elm, hawthorn, blackthorn, elder and field maple. Several rare plant species have also been moved so that they can be replanted. In all, twice as many trees will be replanted as those which have had to be felled for the construction of the new road and cleared vegetation has been used within the local community for energy production. All the electricity used in the project has come from renewable energy.The team has also been working hard to support local charities and good causes, with 30 local projects receiving £280,000 to benefit around 2,000 people. as part of the A14 Community Fund. Around £60,000 has been raised for local charities through various initiatives too.In partnership with Cambridgeshire County Council, a £3.5 million programme of works has started to build new pedestrian, cyclist and horse rider routes in addition to the 18 miles which are provided as part of the scheme. Funding has also been secured to support four local flood prevention projects. Communities have engaged with the project thanks to the team’s mobile visitor exhibition centre attending 70 events, reaching around 5,000 people.In recent weeks, a new bridge over the A14 at Swavesey has opened to traffic, and an old bridge demolished. Two massive new bridges at Bar Hill were also moved into place during a weekend operation in September, having been pre-fabricated next to the A14. Looking ahead, the project team expects to open a new local access road between Cambridge and Dry Drayton this winter, and the new A1 between Brampton and Buckden is expected to open early in 2019.The fully upgraded A14 is due to be opened to traffic by December 2020.last_img read more
