Perched high upon Yeomalt Bluff, the Ellis Residence enjoys a commanding 180-degree view of Puget Sound and the Seattle skyline. The owners requested that the residence be sustainable, and the resulting design by Coates Design is the first LEED Platinum home outside the city of Seattle.  Follow the break for more photographs and drawings.Save this picture!© Roger Turk/Northlight PhotographyRecommended ProductsFiber Cements / CementsRieder GroupFacade Panels – concrete skinWoodTechnowoodPergola SystemsWoodBlumer LehmannFree Form Structures for Wood ProjectsWoodEGGERLaminatesThe owners had a special goal in mind when they decided to build a sustainable home in the beautiful surroundings of Bainbridge Island, WA. The owners’ goal was two-fold: they wanted to prove that sustainability can be achieved without compromising a modern aesthetic design and they wanted to motivate others to follow suit.Save this picture!Site PlanThe design limits its impact on the environment with a multitude of sustainable practices. Through implementation of geothermal, photovoltaic, solar hot water, and advanced heat-recovery technologies this home has succeeded in reducing the energy consumption by more than 70% compared to a typical home construction. The home also makes use of rain water cisterns for irrigation of native landscaping and a vegetated roof. The project’s ecologically small footprint was not just constrained to the construction of the new house. Rather than demolishing the existing structure on the site, the team deconstructed, it effectively diverting 98% of its material from the landfill.Save this picture!© Roger Turk/Northlight PhotographyThe home features intimate multi-use spaces that frame exceptional views of Seattle across Puget Sound. The view is best seen from the dining/living room’s large expanse of glass windows and doors that open out to a concrete patio. Another great location to capture the vistas beyond is the sunken concrete tub in the master bath and on the accessible vegetated roof. The anticipation of the owners, Ed and Joanne’s unique goal encompassed a 3 year process. This is a small price to pay when your home is a model of sustainability.

S House / Domenack Arquitectos

first_img “COPY” photographs:  Juan SolanoPhotographs:  Juan Solano Ojasi Save this picture!© Juan SolanoText description provided by the architects. The house is the result of dealing with three important variables: satisfying the functional needs of the family, adapting the design to a difficult sloping topography without resorting to complicate and expensive structures, and capturing the views towards a golf course despite the fact that the plot is not adjacent to it. Save this picture!© Juan SolanoThe design of the house is planned over an existing natural platform located 3m above street level. This decision allowed locating only the parking and service areas at street level, while the rest of the program is located above the natural platform. The house is developed in 3 levels, following the rocky ascending topography of the plot. The functional and spatial distribution derives from the customs and needs of the clients. The main garden, pool and social areas are located in the first level, while the private areas are located in the second and third levels.Save this picture!© Juan SolanoThe project´s elevated position allows taking advantage of the views of the golf course, located to the south of the plot, from the social and master bedroom areas. The rest of the house enjoys different views and scenarios of the surrounding natural environment, through patios, gardens and platforms generated by following the ascending topography. The design of the house promotes adequate ventilation, lighting and thermal control in order to reduce energy consumption.Save this picture!First Floor PlanThe house´s composition is framed in a double height exposed concrete structure that directs the views to the golf course and contains the inner volumes of the house. Space within this frame flows freely, visually integrating different areas of the project and its natural surroundings. The premise of adapting the house to the plot´s natural topography, based on ecological and economic criteria, determined the rest of the house´s posterior facades.Save this picture!© Juan SolanoProject gallerySee allShow lessPlovdiv Central Square Architectural CompetitionArchitecture NewsAmerican Standard / SPACESelected Projects Share Houses CopyAbout this officeDomenack ArquitectosOfficeFollowProductsWoodGlassConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesLimaHousesPeruPublished on April 20, 2014Cite: “S House / Domenack Arquitectos” 20 Apr 2014.

Freedom will come to Palestine

first_imgThe situation in the Middle East has been a hotbed of chaos for some time now. From the unjust wars in Iraq and Afghanistan to the quagmire you have now in Syria regarding the Islamic State group. Not even Yemen has been spared from the imperialist forces interfering in the self-determination of its peoples. There is one struggle, however, that has remained since 1948, and that is the struggle for the liberation of Palestine from the grip of the cruel Zionist police state.Less than a year after the conflict in Gaza during the summer of 2014, we see another conflict arise from Palestinian lands, this time including not only Gaza but the West Bank and Jerusalem as well. This chapter in this long struggle to freedom started a month ago, when in mid-September the Israeli military decided to go into the Al-Aqsa mosque, the second holiest site in Islam, and allow Jewish extremists to wreak havoc among the Muslim/Palestinian worshippers. Even though the Palestinians and Muslims were defending their right to be at the mosque against these religious extremists, they were treated like the aggressors. Their rights were squashed, and the Jewish radicals were allowed to continue. This led to a wave of instability across occupied East Jerusalem, which poured into the West Bank and Gaza and started confrontations between Palestinians and the Israeli settlers and military. This all occurred as the flag of free Palestine was finally allowed to wave at the United Nations, and exactly at the same time that Palestinian Authority leader Mahmoud Abbas declared that the 1993 Oslo Accords with Israel, which are not being upheld by Israel, are no longer valid and that Palestine no longer has to adhere to them. This is obviously retaliation on behalf of the Israeli government led by Benjamin Netanyahu, who already has the blood of several thousand Palestinians on his hands. A third intifada is in the works, and we must support Palestine in its right to freedom and equality. The hard-handed tactics being used at this moment by the Israeli military are just more violations of human rights on top of an already exhausting list of atrocities. These include the diversion of agricultural water supply to prevent crops from growing in Gaza, not allowing food and supplies into the Palestinian territories, and bulldozing the houses of hundreds of Palestinian families to establish illegal settlements. The violence that is being seen now in the West Bank, Jerusalem and Gaza is provoked and caused by the Zionist government. What we see from the Palestinian side is the reaction to Israeli tactics. We are also watching the intifada take form again and resistance begin to solidify across the Palestinian territories. We must stand in solidarity with Palestine and all oppressed people across the world. Long live a free Palestine!

Profit Picture Dims for Pork Producers

first_img SHARE 2013 was supposed to see a return to profitability for Indiana pork producers, but that may now be put on hold. Purdue Ag Economist Chris Hurt says both the supply of pork and price of pork have gone down in recent weeks.  “Economists and producers had been hopeful that prices would return to at least break-even this spring,” said Hurt. But a $9-per-hundredweight drop in live-hog prices and a $7.50-per-hundredweight drop in futures prices since the beginning of February has quelled some of the optimism. By Gary Truitt – Mar 11, 2013 Profit Picture Dims for Pork Producers In addition to loss of Russian and Chinese markets, the value of the Japanese yen has fallen by 12 percent so far this year and by 16 percent since October. The decline means U.S. pork prices are higher in Japan by similar percentages. Japan bought 6 percent of the U.S. pork production volume in 2012, making the country the largest U.S. pork buyer. All of the market problems have combined to create an outlook that is less-than-welcome for hog producers struggling to cover high feed prices. Pork Outlook with Chris Hurt Facebook Twitter SHAREcenter_img Previous articlePork Producers Reaffirm Industry Support for Producer Choice on Sow HousingNext articleBills Propose Crop Insurance Cutbacks Gary Truitt Facebook Twitter Hurt’s full comments and an accompanying podcast are available in the weekly outlook section of Farmdoc Daily at https://www.farmdoc.illinois.edu/marketing/weekly/html/030413.html As a result, Hurt sees pork producers doing no better than breaking even for much of this year. “The current outlook suggests the industry will have to wait until late summer for break-even conditions when feed prices can decline if more normal corn and soybean crops develop,” Hurt said. “With the more cautious tone, hog prices are expected to only average about $66 in the second quarter, with costs of production near $70 per live hundredweight.” With lower corn and soybean meal prices, late-summer production costs could come down to the $66 mark. Home News Feed Profit Picture Dims for Pork Producers “Price weakness is coming from demand concerns,” Hurt observed. “The first of those concerns is the weakened buying power of U.S. consumers. Unusually high gasoline prices for this time of year and increased payroll taxes since January 1 have reduced the buying power of consumers.” Second, Hurt said potential reduction in federal meat inspectors as a result of automatic spending cuts mandated by sequestration could mean animal-processing plants would operate fewer days of the year. “If plants were to shut down some days, they wouldn’t buy hogs for those days — thus weakening hog prices,” he said.Another major demand factor is export demand, which accounts for 23 percent of total U.S. pork production. Hurt explained that, in February, Russia banned imports of U.S. pork because of concerns over the use of ractopamine, a feed additive that promotes lean muscle in animals raised for meat. Russia represented 1.2 percent of U.S. pork production in 2012. “The loss of Russian business would not be felt as much by itself due to their small share; but, later in February, China also announced that they were going to more closely check imports of U.S. pork for ractopamine,” Hurt said. “Last year, China’s pork purchases from the U.S. represented 3.4 percent of total U.S. production volume.”last_img read more

Plenish Soybeans Do Well in Challenging Year

first_img SHARE In Clinton, Montgomery, Boone, and Tippecanoe Counties, a large amount of high oleic soybeans are produced because of the processing facility in Frankfort.  Kramer says these new varieties are showing some very good yields this year, “I am really thrilled on how those turned out this year.” Kramer reported that a grower just east of Frankfort had a field of Plenish soybeans yield over 70 bpa. He said this should give growers confidence that they can get top end yield with the Plenish varieties and get paid a premium price by processors at the same time. Home Indiana Agriculture News Plenish Soybeans Do Well in Challenging Year It started out looking like a good year for soybean yields, but lack of rain in late August and September over much of Indiana kept many soybean varieties from finishing well.  Yield reports area quite variable, said Fred Kramer, agronomist with DuPont Pioneer in Clinton County, “I have heard soybean yields that range from 30 to 60 bpa in this area.”   Some growers who got rain at the right time are reporting some top end yields. Kramer added the new Pioneer T series varieties handled this year’s weather stress very well, “The P28T 33R and the P35T58R both performed very well this year.” Previous articleLawmakers from Both Chambers Call for Farm Bill Support for Beginning FarmersNext articleOil Prices Decline for 6th Straight Week Gary Truitt SHAREcenter_img Plenish Soybeans Do Well in Challenging Year By Gary Truitt – Oct 27, 2013 Facebook Twitter Facebook Twitterlast_img read more

Politicians will have to campaign to us, address our concerns, and propose policy we prefer, unless we prove them right by not turning out to vote.”Her group meets every Wednesday and every other week they invite campaign officials and their staff to speak.Meanwhile, the Young Democratic Leaders have partnered with campaigns to research how to inform potential voters how to register in Texas, specifically out-of-state students who are unaware they can register to vote in Texas.“We want to be a home for students, while they may have the minority view, there’s other students that are like-minded,” said Anthony Deininger, the founder and president of YDL.The latest Quinnipiac Poll shows more women prefer Democratic candidates than men do, with 58 percent of women in comparison to 42 percent of men. Texas Democrats are hoping for a wave of young female voters to help turn the state blue.At a recent event on campus, YDL proclaimed: “The future is female.”The event, which was in the ballroom of the Brown-Lupton University Union, targeted young women and introduced them to Texas Democrats who are on the ballot this November.Olivia Albrecht wore this sweater to the YDL event last Wednesday in hopes to inspire more women to vote. Photo by Carolina Olivares.Olivia Albrecht, a sophomore business marketing major who turned 18 over the summer, said she is eager to vote in the midterm election. She said she hopes to be a role model for her neighbors back home in California who are also eligible to vote in the primaries.Women traditionally have higher voter turnouts in presidential elections; however, representation has always been lower in midterm elections, according to the Center for American Women and Politics (CAWP).The CAWP has also reported voters ages 18-24 represent the lowest percentage across the boards.Some are suggesting the recent fight over the appointment of Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh may galvanize women upset with the process.New York District 14 representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, who unseated a Democratic incumbent in the primary, is among a record-breaking number of female candidates and the number of women who on the midterm ballot for the House and the Senate, according to New York Times analysis.We are asking Senators to respect survivors & the standards of the Supreme Court: #CancelKavanauagh.Soon, the Senate will vote on Kavanaugh’s nomination.But on November 6th, THE PEOPLE will vote on their Senators.Time to send a message: https://t.co/7iDkzMwjdM pic.twitter.com/9PhrgeYuHv— Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (@Ocasio2018) October 5, 2018“Ocasio-Cortez showed the effect grassroots efforts can have in this era,” said Dooley. “Voters want a candidate who’s willing to get to meet them, forcing a lot of once-safe incumbents to campaign differently against these new, more active challengers.”Deininger said the young Democrats and Republicans are planning to team up to address issues of a low young voter turnout and to unite students with differentiating viewpoints at TCU to get rid of such a division.For more information on how to join the College Republicans or attend their events, visit their Facebook page.For more information on how to join YDL or attend their events, follow them on social media at @ydltcu.
