This luxurious residence, which has just been completed recently, is absolute example of a design that satisfies the owners’ preference more than just to satisfy architect’s taste. The owners who are successful in their business are also highly experienced in life and have a different architectural conception. While the husband loves the unique and creative style, the wife favors something that is practical and convenient. Combined, they inspired Architect Tran Le Quoc Binh for an ingenious design.Save this picture!© Quang DamSave this picture!Ground floor planSave this picture!Elevation 01Save this picture!© Quang DamFrom outside, the lush greenery-covered fence steers passer-by’s into a realm of awe, only to reveal the radiant masterpiece behind it- the house. Just behind the gate, a distinctive presence immerses visitors in wonder, displaying a gallery of exotic shapes combined with timber slating – the terraced field house style. All of this is what makes the house so unique.Save this picture!© Quang DamIn the living room, a “bird nest” style pendant attached to the ceiling is compatible with the timber wrapped around the elevator, analogous to a bird nest and a tree. The balustrade panels are engraved with intricate flower patterns. The dining and kitchen areas both fit the styles and needs of the owners. Both have an open view to the garden. Materials in the kitchen are easy to clean and maintain. The dining table set matches the use of timber for the ceiling and floor.Save this picture!© Quang DamThe theater room is installed with high tech equipment, with sound insulation and absorptive materials combined with the velvet walls creating a cinematic experience. Besides that, using the effect of water factors such as swimming pool and Koi fish pond, which is divided by a greenery is also an idea to harmonize and adapt to the differences between husband and wife.Save this picture!© Quang DamInterior spaces mainly focus on convenience, which every detail is treated as carefully as possible to maximize the convenience for the users. The owners set a clear goal for their home from the beginning: to make sure every time they come home, it is more comfortable than being in any hotel or resort.

Reparaciones y las raíces racistas de Yale

first_imgEl brutal asesinato de nueve afroamericanas/os en la histórica Iglesia Metodista Episcopal Africana Emanuel en Charleston-Carolina del Sur en junio del año pasado por un racista que blandió símbolos confederados, provocó un movimiento nacional para retirar las banderas y estatuas confederadas y quitar los nombres de los propietarios de esclavos de lugares y edificios.Uno de estos ricos propietarios de esclavas/os fue John C. Calhoun, un graduado de Yale en 1804, a quien la Universidad de Yale honra al haberle dado su nombre al Colegio Calhoun. Como consecuencia de la balacera en Charleston, estudiantes de Yale comenzaron una petición para eliminar el nombre de Calhoun y consiguieron más de 1.500 firmas. La petición dice: “Al igual que el despliegue oficial de la bandera de la Confederación en Carolina del Sur, el Colegio Calhoun representa una indiferencia a siglos de dolor y sufrimiento de la población negra”.Para quien no sabe cuán podrido era Calhoun, a principios de 1800, fue la voz nacional más viciosa promoviendo la esclavocracia, incluso llamando a la esclavitud un “bien positivo”. Y él era poderoso además de rico; fue representante y senador de Carolina del Sur, secretario de estado y vicepresidente bajo John Quincy Adams y también Andrew Jackson. Una de sus principales “contribuciones” fue ser el autor de la doctrina que permitía a los estados esclavistas hacer caso omiso de cualquier ley federal que inhibiera la esclavitud.En cara del Underground Railroad (Corredor Oculto de esclavas/os), dirigido por héroes como Harriet Tubman, Calhoun creó la Ley de Esclavos Fugitivos de 1850. Esta ley permitía a los dueños de esclavos localizar y volver a esclavizar a quienes se habían escapado al Norte.Desafiando a sus estudiantes, el presidente de Yale Peter Salovey, anunció el 27 de abril que la escuela se negaba a remover el nombre del supremacista blanco del colegio residencial.En un momento en que incluso la Legislatura de Carolina del Sur está de acuerdo en retirar la bandera de la Confederación de la Cámara Legislativa, ¿por qué una universidad de Nueva Inglaterra de la ‘Ivy League’ [N de T: colegios considerados los mejores del país] se niega a borrar el nombre de este monstruo racista? La única razón lógica es que conceder esta parte del pasado de Yale abre la puerta a un nuevo examen de la totalidad del enredo histórico de la Universidad de Yale y su enriquecimiento con la esclavitud.La Universidad de Yale lleva el nombre de Elihu Yale, un funcionario de la Compañía de las Indias Orientales a finales de 1600, que hizo una fortuna con el comercio de esclavos del Océano Índico. El decano Holloway de la universidad de Yale, señaló el año pasado que “En su fundación y durante sus primeros 150 años o más, sí, Yale, como tantas otras instituciones de la época, fueron cómplices en el saqueo debido a que sus finanzas estaban entrelazadas con la economía global de esclavos”. (yaledailynews.com 30 de marzo de 2015)El trabajo no remunerado de millones de esclavas/os africanos durante siglos fue central para la acumulación de capital de muchos actuales bancos, compañías de seguros, empresas e instituciones elitistas como la Universidad de Yale. Esta acumulación, con valor actual de billones de dólares, se intensificó sobre todo después de la invención de la desmotadora de algodón por otro graduado de Yale, Eli Whitney. Continuó a través del período de la aparcería, el motor económico de Jim Crow, forzado por el brutal régimen de terror del Klan.Este legado racista continúa de mil maneras hoy, con las políticas de los gobiernos y las empresas por igual sobre vivienda, educación, prisiones, e incluso de aguas limpias, diseñadas para saquear la riqueza producida por la comunidad afroamericana.Durante años ha habido un creciente movimiento de reparaciones exigiendo un retorno de esta riqueza a las comunidades afroamericanas donde estaban y de donde se extrajeron con tanta crueldad. La administración de la Universidad de Yale y todos sus patrocinadores de Wall Street quieren evitar cualquier cosa que podría abrir la puerta a la justa reparación de la riqueza.Workers World – Mundo Obrero apoya la justa demanda de las/os estudiantes de Yale para cambiar el nombre de su colegio. Pero eso es sólo el comienzo. La campaña electoral 2016 del Partido WW-Mundo Obrero incluye la demanda de ¡reparaciones ahora! Esa deuda debe ser pagada por las instituciones ricas como la Universidad de Yale y todos sus aliados de Wall Street.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Learning fosters engaged employees

first_imgThe full-employment economy seems to be positively affecting employee engagement, yet full employment is creating a concern for management seeking talent. Gallup’s most recent annual workplace survey showed employee engagement tied for the highest levels since Gallup began recording it in 2000, and active dissatisfaction fell to the lowest recorded level. A recent Deloitte survey, however, reports that 39% of large-company executives were “barely able” or “unable” to find the talent they required. Furthermore, current Labor Department data show that 38% of U.S. small businesses had positions they could not fill, and the “quit rate” upward trend, particularly within the financial services industry, continues for 2018.  Additionally, as companies work hard to upskill and retain their workforce, employees also become more engaged. Organizations facing this talent crunch should see this human resource threat as an opportunity. With talent so difficult to recruit, and retention of talent equally important, management today is more attuned to the value of talent development programs that serve the needs of the organization and the employee. Well executed learning programs deliver needed skills and, importantly, engender loyalty that supports retention as well. A sustained focus on continuous learning for all employees establishes a culture whereby your organization can become a “learning organization.”A learning culture provides an edge both in profitability and competitive resilience. Gallup documented that organizations that best engage their employees achieve higher earnings-per-share growth, better business metrics and lower turnover than competitors with less engagement. Engagement occurs when people have opportunities to both develop and employ new skills, and have their opinions heard. Engaged employees seek new learning experiences and new competencies to increase their personal value to the organization. Smart managers realize that employee recognition for work achievements and positive relationships with coworkers and supervisors translate into engaged employees. Educational programs require focused attention for effective design and implementation. The IBM Institute for Business Value recently reported that 60% of executives surveyed were not finding it easy to keep their workforce “current and relevant”. The most successful organizations know that high quality developmental experiences lead to high achievement and organizational success. They make learning easy by adopting a flexible approach that employs a number of learning options and platforms that are refreshed and up-to-date. A focus on how people learn and what incentivizes them to do so are built into effective programs. Large companies like ATT and IBM have instituted effective employee-centric learning programs to develop needed skills within their workforce. IBM instituted “bite-sized” learning modules of about 15 minutes each to retool thousands of engineers in current technical practices. It based the system on research that showed that the human attention span drops sharply after about 20 minutes, and time interspersed between learning sessions improves long-term retention. ATT embarked on a company-wide learning program to upskill hundreds of thousands of employees in order to transform the company from “cables and hardware” to “the internet and cloud”, by utilizing eLearning and in-person learning protocols.  Companies are well served by following the lead of IBM and ATT in viewing their employees as a resource to be fully developed and by cultivating and providing relevant learning to ensure this happens. 3SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblr,Stuart R.

Rice farming to take root in South Africa

first_imgCan rice grow in South Africa? The South African agricultural sector could soon add rice to its list of crops cultivated locally. South Africa’s next major grain crop Rice has never been produced commercially in the country. According to the International Rice Research Institute (IRRI), 90% of the world’s rice is cultivated in South, Southeast, and East Asia. Rice processing facilities are not available in South Africa yet, but talks are underway with a local financier about investment to build such a facility. “This is an amazing project and a very exciting prospect for South African agriculture,” says local businessman Hennie Kruger, who is spearheading a rice cultivation project in South Africa. A local seed company is looking into importing the rice seed initially, but in the near future the company would like to start seed selection on rice. Kruger estimates that within three years South Africa could have its own seed and the industry could be established commercially. He says that there is a common misconception that rice can only grow in watery paddy fields. However, because northern hemisphere agricultural countries receive much more rain than South Africa, crops such as rice are often grown in water. After harvest, the rice grain undergoes a number of processes depending on how it will be used. Such methods include, drying, storing, milling, and processing. First published by MediaClubSouthAfrica.com – get free high-resolution photos and professional feature articles from Brand South Africa’s media service. In these environments, rice yields are low and extremely variable because of soil problems and unpredictable combinations of drought and flood. One fifth of the world’s population depends on rice cultivation for their livelihoods. According to Kruger, the absence of local rice plantings does not mean it can’t be produced successfully in South Africa. Kruger says that with well-managed irrigation, rice can be grown in many areas across South Africa, such as Kwa-Zulu Natal, the western areas of the Free State province and even as far north as Thabazimbi in Limpopo province. The IRRI confirms that rice production under irrigation is viable. The irrigated rice environment accounts for about half of the harvested rice area and contributes 75% of global rice production.center_img Globally, rice is grown in more than a hundred countries with a total harvested area of nearly 160-million hectares, producing more than 700-million tons every year. Seed and production facilities “This is a very positive development for the country and there are many farmers interested in growing rice.” He says that about 10 years ago, studies by the Agricultural Research Council found rice to be a crop worth cultivating. “When grown under irrigation the crop responds beautifully,” he says. He says that as rice is a cereal grain summer crop, many grain farmers would be interested in growing rice as a means to diversify their farming operations. Local production will also reduce the country’s reliance on rice imports. South Africa imports two-million tons of the staple each year. According to the IRRI, flood-prone rice producing ecosystems need special rice varieties that are suited to flooded environments. These rice plants must be adapted to conditions such as deep water, flash floods that could last longer than 10 days, salinity in low-lying coastal areas and problem soils. 22 December 2011 Worldwide, about 80-million hectares of rice are grown in irrigated areas. High-yielding areas of irrigated rice can be found in China, Egypt, Japan, Indonesia, Vietnam, the Republic of Korea, and the Senegal River Valley in Africa. “Our farmers should produce much of the rice we need. It could become a major grain crop in South Africa,” says Kruger. Recent commercial planting trials carried out by six farmers across the country yielded promising results. “The trials show that rice does not have to be cultivated in water-logged fields. It can be planted in any soil, provided the soil contains 15% clay,” explains Kruger. The South African economy and agricultural sector can benefit significantly from introducing another grain crop, says Kruger.last_img read more
