One questions the sense of ‘landed-ness’ in a typically maxed-out envelope of a semi-detached typology. What is usually left over after the building footprint is no more than a slender planting strip on the ground. Hence, one of the prime motivations of this house was to seek out more garden spaces/surfaces in an attempt to redress this imbalance while we fulfill the client’s brief.

Save this picture!© Jeremy SanThe Planter Screen Enclosing part of the building façade on the upper floor is a layer of planting system we devised to behave more like a curtain wall. Its primary function is to perform as a privacy screen and to keep the rain out. We were particularly thrilled with this detail as it approximates to an organic envelope. The curtain of plants coincides building performance with man’s affinity for nature. Save this picture!© Jeremy SanThe Sloping Roof The sloping roof terrace is derived from the staggered section of the house and retained a continuous flow from the indoor. We were nostalgic with the idea of getting up on the roof, itself. The sloping roof-scape reminds us of an undulating terrain. We imagined the inclined plane to be more conducive to sit or lie down and have a conversation while looking out in the same direction, sharing the same moment, like one do in a park.Save this picture!© Jeremy SanProject gallerySee allShow lessPritzker Ceremony / SANAAArticlesAustralia St infants School COLA / Scale ArchitectureArticles Share Maximum Garden House / Formwerkz ArchitectsSave this projectSaveMaximum Garden House / Formwerkz Architects Photographs Houses CopyHouses•Singapore Maximum Garden House / Formwerkz Architects 2010 Singapore Save this picture!© Jeremy San+ 20 Share CopyAbout this officeFormwerkz ArchitectsOfficeFollow#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesHousesSingaporePublished on May 18, 2010Cite: “Maximum Garden House / Formwerkz Architects” 18 May 2010.

U.S. weapons base in Italy expands — trees are first casualties

first_imgIn front of the U.S. milartary base, Camp Darby, in Italy.This article was published in the Sept. 21 issue of Il Manifesto, written by that newspaper’s expert on militarism. Although it describes the expansion in only one of the many overseas U.S. military bases, Camp Darby in Italy, its expansion reveals the continued drive to war by U.S. imperialism to increase its military reach worldwide. Workers World Managing Editor John Catalinotto translated the article.The first trees have already been cut down, the others marked with paint: 937 trees are now being removed in the “protected” natural area of the San Rossore Regional Park between [the Italian cities of] Pisa and Livorno. The slaughtered trees are the first “collateral damage” of the massive reorganization, begun these days, of the infrastructure of Camp Darby, which contains the largest U.S. arsenal in the world outside the United States.Even if the U.S. command promises to replant more trees than those cut, the construction of a railway and other infrastructure, fragmenting the natural habitats, will upset a vast ecosystem.The project involves the construction of a new railway section that will connect the station of Tombolo (on the Pisa-Livorno line) to a new loading and unloading terminal. The trains will cross the Canale dei Navicelli on a new rotating metal bridge. The loading and unloading terminal, almost 65 feet high, will consist of four 575-foot-long tracks capable of accommodating nine wagons each, for a total of 36 wagons.The terminal will be joined to the ammunition storage area by large trucks. By means of trolleys handling containers, incoming weapons will be transferred from railway wagons to trucks and those leaving the base will be transferred from trucks to railway wagons. The terminal will allow the transit of two trains per day, which will connect the base to the port through the normal lines of the Italian state railways.The reorganization of the infrastructure, which has just begun, is based on the plan to carry out the increased transit of weapons from Camp Darby. The current connection via canal and the base road with the port of Livorno and the Pisa airport is no longer sufficient.The U.S. continuously supplies the 125 bunkers at Camp Darby with over a million artillery bullets, bombs for aircraft and missiles, plus thousands of tanks, vehicles and other military equipment in these bunkers (according to approximate estimates).Since March 2017, enormous ships have been calling at Livorno on a monthly basis. The ships unload and load weapons that are continuously transported to the ports of Aqaba in Jordan, Jeddah in Saudi Arabia and other Middle Eastern ports. U.S. forces and allies use these weapons in the wars in Syria, Iraq and Yemen.You do not need to be a skilled technician to understand what the dangers are for the population of the Tuscany region. Moving thousands of high-powered explosive warheads continuously in a densely populated area involves obvious risks. Even though the project managers describe their strategy as taking into account “human health and public safety,” an accident with catastrophic consequences cannot be excluded.Neither can anyone rule out the possibility of sabotage or a terrorist attack that could cause the explosion of an entire train loaded with bombs. This is confirmed by the fact that the plan provides for the construction of a second terminal which will be used for verification and inspection operations of the “suspect wagons.” Those are wagons on which a bomb could have been installed (for example, inside a container). Such a bomb, exploding on command, would cause a catastrophic chain reaction.What have the authorities done about this danger? Instead of carrying out their duties to protect the citizens and the territory, the region of Tuscany, the municipalities of Pisa and Livorno, and the Park Authority have not only approved the strengthening of Camp Darby, but have contributed to carrying it out. The civil works carried out in recent years for real or alleged economic development projects (such as luxury shipbuilding) — in particular the works to improve the navigability of the Navicelli Canal and the rail links to the port of Livorno — are exactly those demanded for years by the command of Camp Darby.Its most prominent representative, [U.S. Army Garrison Italy Cmdr. Col. Erik M. Berdy], has been received in recent months with all the honors by the president of the Tuscan Regional Council, Eugenio Giani (Democratic Party), who has committed to promoting “integration between the U.S. military base of Camp Darby and the surrounding community,” by the mayor of Livorno, Filippo Nogarin (Five Star Movement), and that of Pisa, Michele Conti (League). The representatives of these three major parties  have expressed substantially the same position supporting military expansion. The trees of the park can be cut down and the bombs of Camp Darby can circulate on Italian territory, thanks to the mutual consent of the politicians.In a July 11 interview in La Nazione, Col. Berdy said Camp Darby plays a key role in the Pentagon’s logistics, supplying the U.S. land forces and areas in much shorter time than it would take if they were supplied directly from the U.S. The base supplied most of the weapons for the wars against Iraq, Yugoslavia, Libya and Afghanistan.

Anybody Buying that Big Equipment in Louisville?

first_img Anybody Buying that Big Equipment in Louisville? Facebook Twitter By Andy Eubank – Feb 14, 2013 SHARE Home News Feed Anybody Buying that Big Equipment in Louisville? financing the equipmentWarm weather greeted day 2 farmers visiting the largest indoor farm show in America. As usual in Louisville Kentucky there is plenty of large equipment on display at the National Farm Machinery Show, and everyone from the farmers to the ladies and kids is climbing up and checking it out. But is there much interest in new equipment purchases?Eric Hess is a financial services officer for Farm Credit Mid-America and he says farmers are buying equipment and many other things.“Farmers have been pretty active all across the board. With the 179 depreciation there have been quite a few equipment purchases go through that some guys may not have done otherwise without the tax advantage that the 179 depreciation offered. Land purchases have been fairly brisk when they can be found. The amount of land on the market hasn’t been quite what the farmers would like for it to be but there is quite a bit of interest in land right now.”Hess says what is of concern is the cost in the future to finance those equipment and land purchases.“We’ve seen on a lot of peoples’ minds concern about future interest rates, what they might do and when we might see those creep up a little. There is also concern about rising cost of equipment, land and other inputs as well.”Hess doesn’t have an interest rate crystal ball, “but what I can tell you is that we’re at what I believe are 70 year lows in fixed interest rate markets and if I were a producer that had much debt against land or equipment right now, I would definitely be looking to fix some longer term interest rate.”Farm Credit Services offers help for just about anything a farmer might need and Hess details that and the information a farmer needs to provide them with in the HAT interview:Eric Hess Farm Credit MidAmerica Facebook Twitter SHARE Previous articleSeed Consultants Market Watch 2/14/2013 Closing Comments With Gary WilhelmiNext articleWill Farming Boom Period Continue to be Explored in Workshop Andy Eubanklast_img read more

Indiana Soils Warming Fast, but Too Wet to Plant

first_img By Gary Truitt – Mar 22, 2016 Previous articleRoberts Pleased with Marketplace GMO Labeling EffortsNext articleMorning Outlook Gary Truitt Indiana Soils Warming Fast, but Too Wet to Plant martin spring wrapRyan MartinA warmer than average March has warmed Indiana soils to the point where planting could begin. However, April showers will likely keep planters from rolling anytime soon. According to Hoosier Ag Today Chief meteorologist Ryan Martin spring is in the air with trees blooming and soils warming up nicely, “At the 4 inch depth, we should see soil temps reaching 50 degrees in southern Indiana by this weekend. This would include about everything south of I-70. Above that, we should remain in the mid to upper 40 degree range.” Martin says soil moisture is another issue, “We have a system moving in later this week, another early next week, and yet a third about the beginning of April.”  He said these systems will produce a good deal of moisture and could drop several inches on the Hoosier state over the next two weeks.The last week in March and the first two weeks in April will see cooler temperatures along with heavy rains that will keep field work to a minimum. Martin states, “March was above normal in temperatures, but I feel we will see April closer to normal.” He said the cooler temps will not hurt the soil temperature as much as they will slow drying, “We will not see rapid drying of the soils which means planting may be slow to start in some areas.”  Martin notes that some market commentators are already trying to make a case for delayed planting,  but says it is too early to consider that as a real market factor.You can get Ryan’s Indiana farm forecast every morning in your e-mail; just sign up for the free HAT newsletter.

Make a comment Community News SoCalGas service pickup trucks. (Photo courtesy SoCalGas Facebook)Southern California Gas Co. announced Thursday it will convert 200 new Ford F-250 service pickup trucks to run on renewable natural gas, a renewable form of energy produced from a variety of waste streams.Outfitting the service trucks with a California Air Resource Board certified ultra-low emissions vehicles system by Landi Renzo USA is expected to reduce more than 2,000 metric tons of CO2 equivalent per year, which is equivalent to taking 1,800 passenger vehicles off the road for one year.With the addition of the 200 new net-zero emissions service trucks, nearly 40% of SoCalGas’ service vehicles will run on clean fuels, according to the utility. The fleet conversion is expected to be complete by the end of the year.“This project is one of the many decarbonizing initiatives we’re implementing here at SoCalGas as we continue to move towards a net zero future,” said Sandra Hrna, vice president of supply chain and operations support. “In order to achieve our sustainability goals, we work to build strong relationships with innovative partners to help us continue delivering technologies to further decarbonize the transportation sector.”Putting more clean trucks on the road is a key part of SoCalGas’ commitment to achieve net zero greenhouse gas emissions in its operations and delivery of energy by 2045.RNG is a renewable form of energy produced from the waste streams at dairy farms, wastewater treatment plants, landfills and other sources. Depending on its source, RNG can be carbon negative, meaning it avoids more emissions than it emits when produced and used as a fuel. Capturing the methane from these waste sources and converting it into RNG keeps greenhouse gas emissions with high global warming potential from entering the atmosphere and reduces the use of fossil fuels.Landi Renzo USA is partnering with two local companies on the conversion project — Phenix Truck Body and CTEC Truck Body. The Landi Renzo Eco Ready CNG system is designed and engineered from the base Ford 6.2L engine in a partnership between Landi Renzo USA and Ford Motor Co.

Corpses Floating In Ganga: NHRC Seeks Response From Centre, Govt Of UP & Bihar

first_imgNews UpdatesCorpses Floating In Ganga: NHRC Seeks Response From Centre, Govt Of UP & Bihar LIVELAW NEWS NETWORK13 May 2021 5:58 AMShare This – xImage Courtesy : Indian ExpressThe National Human Rights Commission has issued notices to the Centre and the Governments of Uttar Pradesh and Bihar over the viral news of corpses found floating in the river Ganga. The Commission has asked the Chief Secretaries of both the States and the Secretary, Union Ministry of Jal Shakti (Department of Water Resources, River Development & Ganga Rejuvenation), to file an action taken report within four weeks.Advertisement It noted that public authorities have failed to take concentric efforts in educating the masses and checking the immersion of half burnt or unburnt dead bodies into the river “The practice of disposal of dead bodies in our sacred river Ganga is clearly in violation of guidelines of the National Mission for Clean Ganga project of Ministry of Jal Shakti, Department of Water Resources, River Development & Ganga Rejuvenation,” it said.Advertisement The Commission has taken cognizance of a complaint, apprehending that these dead bodies were of Covid victims, hence, their disposal in such a manner may seriously affect all those persons who are dependent on the river for their day to day activities. The complainant further stated that even if these dead bodies were not of Covid victims, then such practice/incidents are shameful to the society as a whole as that amounts to violation of human rights of even deceased persons.Advertisement Advertisement While issuing notices, the Commission noted that the authorities failed to implement the ‘River Ganga (Rejuvenation, Protection and Management) Authorities Order, 2016’ which inter alia relates to measures for prevention, control and abatement of environmental pollution in the river. “No person shall do any act or carry on any project or process or activity which, notwithstanding whether such act has been mentioned in this Order or not, has the effect of causing pollution in the River Ganga,” the 2016 Order states. In related news, the Patna High Court has also take note of the incident and has sought response of Commissioner of the Districts Buxar and Kaimur.TagsNational Human Rights Commission #NHRC Covid Affected Dead Bodies River Ganga Corpses Floating In Ganga UP Government Bihar Government Subscribe to LiveLaw, enjoy Ad free version and other unlimited features, just INR 599 Click here to Subscribe.
