The assignment is located in the province of Loja, Ecuador in the parish Malacatos, in an extraordinary place called Native forest with an enviable mountain landscape and almost no nearby buildings, except for some scattered farms, the site remains as a forest mostly intact, preserving the existing ecology of the place to this comes the name of the project “Native House”, the importance of the history of the commune is transcendental, the most important economic activities are agriculture and artisan brick production, reason why its owners, a Canadian couple, asked us for a house that could adapt to its natural environment, its topography and generate the least possible impact on the landscape.Our intention to make an exemplary architecture with the environment became the first challenge in a property of more than 12000m2, in this relationship with the ground, the house is placed on a higher level than the site this solution offers us the possibility of keeping the house as a very low volume, allowing the “interior” house to have a more intimate relationship with the land and the nearby views, while the “exterior” part search an intense relationship with the privileged distant views over the valley and a proximity to the mountain with its magnificent native forest, the house defines its own type of occupation based on two innovative elements: the connection with the land and the relationship with the landscape.Save this picture!© JAG StudioSave this picture!PlanSave this picture!© JAG StudioThe arrangement of the entire house is linear, leaving all its environments towards an optimal orientation, which creates a diversity of spatial qualities both indoors and outdoors. Several of the facades of the house can be opened, so that the building becomes useful and usable from all sides, in the same way they can all be closed serving as a protective, waterproof and weather resistant housing, being totally isolated from the outside. The will to give the house multiple specific situations and scenarios creates a set of unique relationships and connections, allowing it a certain flexibility in the spaces, that is, multipurpose spaces that range from individual uses to collective uses.Save this picture!© JAG StudioThe interior distribution is simple and clear, designed for the regular use of two people, but eventually up to 10 or more people could use it without any problem, the house keeps all its spaces visually connected to each other and with the environment, the social area is open to the landscape, the service module divides the social area from the private one in perfect order, and the furniture is minimal with simple pieces that organize the space with storage and support functions.Save this picture!© JAG StudioRegarding the materiality of the house, we have wanted to use noble and typical materials, mainly the artisan brick applied by hand by local workers and producers in line with the productive history of the area, preserving the existing ecology and above all supporting the local economy. of the community members of the sector, but at the same time giving it a more contemporary touch, combining it in a pure way and using it in various ways, this together with the rigor of the geometry with which the volume is designed corresponds to the need for the place that the house occupies on the ground making the project dissolve into the landscape.Save this picture!© JAG StudioProject gallerySee allShow lessChocolab Integration Center / MEC ArquitecturaSelected ProjectsNDC House / Tropical SpaceSelected Projects Share Year:  Houses Photographs:  JAG Studio Manufacturers Brands with products used in this architecture project Native House / David Regalado ArquitecturaSave this projectSaveNative House / David Regalado Arquitectura “COPY” CopyAbout this officeDavid Regalado ArquitecturaOfficeFollowProductBrick#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesMalacatosOn FacebookEcuadorPublished on May 11, 2020Cite: “Native House / David Regalado Arquitectura” [Casa Nativa / David Regalado Arquitectura] 11 May 2020.

Families Flock to Amusements, Arcades

first_imgPlayland’s Castaway Cove outside rides were virtually untouched by the blaze. This photo is from July 2020. By MADDY VITALEThe Ocean City Boardwalk is just not the same without the whoosh of a ride, the screams from a thrill on a roller-coaster or the giggles from kids testing out toy race cars.On Thursday, with Gov. Phil Murphy’s go-ahead to reopen amusement parks, water parks, and arcades taking effect, families were once again able to enjoy one of their favorite traditions just in time for Fourth of July weekend.“The amusements, the water parks and the arcades are an integral part of the Ocean City Boardwalk experience,” said Michele Gillian, executive director of the Ocean City Regional Chamber of Commerce.Gillian added, “There are many Boardwalk businesses that are staples. The amusement industry is one of them. It is part of the family vacation experience. People build memories on them, which leads to generation after generation of families returning to Ocean City.”Families rushed to Gillian’s Wonderland Pier and Playland’s Castaway Cove when the doors opened Thursday afternoon to spend an evening enjoying the amusements and the feeling, after three months of the coronavirus shutdown, of some normalcy.Playland’s Castaway Cove would not be the same without its iconic rapid-speed roller-coaster named Gale Force.Stacie Frank and her husband, Jay Ablian, of Chicago, have spent summers in Ocean City for years.In fact, Frank’s parents have a home here and she has been vacationing at the resort all of her life. ‘“I have been coming here since I was a child,” Frank said. “My family used to come all of the time and we would always go to Gillian’s Wonderland Pier.”The couple’s daughters, Alexandra, 6, and Grace, 5, couldn’t wait to head to the amusement park, hop on a roller-coaster, get in an “airplane” and just about any other kiddie ride.“I like the ones that go up in the air and turn,” Alexandra said.Grace agreed.Jay Ablian, and his wife, Stacie Frank, of Chicago, with daughters, Grace, 5, and Alexandra, 6, spend an evening at Gillian’s Wonderland Pier.Mayor Jay Gillian, who owns Wonderland Pier, looked around at the children and their families having a good time and said, “It feels great. We are so lucky that we got to open. We are making everyone wear masks and try to make everyone happy. We are trying to give people a great place to escape.”As part of the governor’s safety guidelines, employees at the amusement parks and arcades are to sanitize the rides and hard surfaces after use. Masks are also given out to anyone who needs them at the amusements and at Jilly’s Arcade. Hand sanitizing stations are also at the locations.“The Chamber, city and business community have worked together to ensure our guests’ safety and adhere to the governor’s guidelines,” Michele Gillian emphasized. “Safety has always been the number one priority for us in the amusement industry.” Jilly’s Arcade can once again provide fun for the family.Jilly’s Arcade on the Boardwalk was bustling with patrons, who played video games, tossed basketballs in hoops for prizes and spent the day enjoying other games.Barbara Spear, of Yardley, Pa., her husband, sister, and children, William, 3, Lois, 11, and Benjamin, 9, savored the Ocean City amusements.The kids could not wait for the amusement parks to open, she said.“With all of the home schooling, the kids just needed to get out of the house. We have been here since it opened,” Spear said. “There is sanitizer if you need it, masks. It is just nice to get out with the kids.”Playland’s Castaway Cove staff is ready to offer patrons enjoyment, while still adhering to safety guidelines.A balmy start to the holiday weekend didn’t deter Boardwalk strollers from taking in the sights and the amusements.Some children play a squirt-gun game at Playland’s Castaway Cove.The carousel at Wonderland Pier is always a favorite.People watch as friends and family go for a spin.The toy car racetrack at Wonderland Pier provides some thrills.last_img read more

first_imgSamworth Brothers is planning to create a Savoury Pastry Centre of Excellence with the merger of two bakery operations in Callington, Cornwall.Staff from the Tamar and Lynher bakeries, which between them employ 915 people, were told late last year of plans to merge the businesses, putting 17 managerial and administrative roles at risk.The Ginsters owner said the move would create a stronger and sustainable business going forward, with a larger-scale bakery.“We are committed to do everything we can to support those affected and, where possible, working to identify alternative roles across the group,” said Joanne Milroy, group communications for Samworth Brother.New Samworth Brothers chief executive Flor Healy last week began his role at the business – ten months after Alex Knight stepped down from his post.last_img read more

The Latest: T20 World Cup on agenda for ICC meeting

first_imgThe chief executives of the International Cricket Council’s 12 full members and three associate representatives also will discuss the rescheduling of series, the program of future tours and the key factors behind the resumption of international cricket on Thursday’s conference call.The T20 World Cup is scheduled for Oct. 18-Nov. 15 in Australia. It is cricket’s biggest global tournament this year and hasn’t yet been called off.ICC chief executive Manu Sawhney says the organization is continuing to “take advice from experts and authorities” about the T20 tournament.Sawhney says there is a need to “share knowledge and … build a deep understanding of what it will take to resume international cricket.”___ Aguero says “it’s a tough time for children at the moment, and also for parents trying to keep them focused on their education from home.”Aguero hasn’t played a competitive match since March 8 because soccer is shut down in England and across most of the world during the outbreak.___More AP sports: and,Tampa Bay Lightning advance to face Dallas Stars in Stanley Cup finals, beating New York Islanders 2-1 in OT in Game 6 German state and local officials could potentially veto games in their areas.

His lessons became available on a day kids in Britain would have usually returned to school after the Easter holidays. The president of the German soccer federation says resuming league play will not mean taking resources away from healthcare workers amid the coronavirus pandemic.Fritz Keller writes in Kicker magazine “we guarantee that resuming play … will not cause a burden for the healthcare system.”He adds that “there will be no use by sportspeople of testing capacity which would be missed elsewhere.”No top league games have been played since March 11.The German league has been more bullish than other major European competitions about the chances of resuming in May or June with widespread coronavirus tests for players. That push is partly driven by fears that several clubs face financial collapse without TV and sponsorship money.

first_imgShare Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest Acting Assistant to the Secretary for Rural Development Joel Baxley today announced that the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) is investing $91 million to build or improve community facilities (PDF, 108 KB) and essential services for nearly 300,000 rural residents in 12 states, including Ohio.“Modern community facilities are key drivers of economic development,” Baxley said. “Under the leadership of Agriculture Secretary Sonny Perdue, USDA is committed to being a strong partner to rural communities in building and maintaining these institutions that are foundational to quality of life and prosperity.”USDA is funding 16 projects through the Community Facilities Direct Loan Program. The funding helps rural small towns, cities and communities make infrastructure improvements and provide essential facilities such as public schools, libraries,The projects announced are located in Alabama, Indiana, Iowa, Kansas, Nebraska, North Carolina, Ohio, South Carolina, South Dakota, Tennessee, Texas and Wisconsin.More than 100 types of projects are eligible for Community Facilities funding. Eligible applicants include municipalities, public bodies, nonprofit organizations and federally recognized Native American tribes. Applicants and projects must be in rural areas with a population of 20,000 or less.In April 2017, President Donald J. Trump established the Interagency Task Force on Agriculture and Rural Prosperity to identify legislative, regulatory and policy changes that could promote agriculture and prosperity in rural communities. In January 2018, Secretary Perdue presented the Task Force’s findings to President Trump. These findings included 31 recommendations to align the federal government with state, local and tribal governments to take advantage of opportunities that exist in rural America. Increasing investments in rural infrastructure is a key recommendation of the task force.To view the report in its entirety, please view the Report to the President of the United States from the Task Force on Agriculture and Rural Prosperity (PDF, 5.4 MB).

Make sure manure is treated as a valuable resource

first_imgShare Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest By Mary WicksDid you know that manure is a valuable resource? From applying it to cropland to creating compost, it can benefit crops and soil or generate additional income. Using manure is complex, which makes it interesting but challenging. There are many factors, such as nutrient availability, application methods, and application rules that need to be taken into account. Soil benefitsA recent 2-year study by the University of Wisconsin compared the effects manure and inorganic fertilizers on soil health. Researchers demonstrated that manure was more effective in maintaining soil pH at a healthy range, while the fertilizer tended to increase acidity. Manure was also more effective in increasing total nitrogen in the soil. And, due the organic matter in manure, it helped increase water stable aggregates, which makes soil more resistant to erosion. However, the electrical conductivity of soils with manure application was higher, indicating that salt levels in manure need to be considered. Nutrient benefitsThe key for land application is to take advantage of the nutrients in manure, saving money on fertilizer while also protecting water quality. Following the 4R Nutrient Stewardship principles (right source, right rate, right time, right place) is a good starting point, but other considerations, such as weather and storage capacity, must also be addressed.In Ohio, nearly 49% of manure is applied from October to December, but an unusually wet fall followed by an extended wet spring as we are currently experiencing, can limit the days available for field application. This results in many livestock producers with not enough manure storage capacity. Regulations that limit manure application during winter months and rain forecasts that prevent manure application can further reduce the application window. To expand the available days for applying manure, Glen Arnold, manure management systems field specialist with OSU Extension, has shown that using liquid manure to side dress emerging crops, especially corn and wheat, can result in yields similar to, or better than, commercial fertilizers. Other benefitsManure can also be a source of income. Poultry litter is often sold to crop producers as a source of nutrients and to improve soil tilth. Others compost manure for sale to nurseries or garden centers. Composting is a natural process in which organisms, primarily microbes, decompose the manure. When managed correctly, this aerobic process can reduce pathogens, odors, and the moisture content creating a product that is easier to handle and allows manure nutrients and organic material to be cost effectively transported off the farm. Learn more at the Manure Science ReviewThere’s a lot more to know about managing manure and the Manure Science Review on August 7 is a great place to learn. This year’s speaker and demonstration program will be held at JIMITA Holsteins in Strasburg, Ohio, and then followed by a tour of nearby Bull Country Composting. Speakers will address when manure nutrients are available, what cover crops can and can’t do, side dressing with manure, and more. Field demonstrations will highlight spreader calibration, liquid manure application methods, manure health, and other practices. The day will wrap up with a tour of a commercial manure composting facility, focusing on material handling and processing as well as marketing.This educational program qualifies for continuing education credits for Certified Crop Advisors, ODA Certified Livestock Managers, ODA Fertilizer Recertification, Pennsylvania Manure Hauler/Broker, and Indiana State Chemist Category 14.
