The project is conceived as a central cabin that gradually opens to the landscape in 4 symmetric fronts, following a continuous constructive module of 2 feet.Save this picture!© Roland HalbeSave this picture!First Floor PlanSave this picture!© Roland HalbeThe building consists of a squared horizontal basement with a smaller squared room in the middle, from which four rooms come off perpendicularly, defining four rectangular patios in the corners. The central room gathers all the common circulations and hosts the cooking, dining and living areas under a four-pitched ceiling with a central skylight. Its vertical surfaces consist of a sliding window and a wall, of 5 and 7 modules each, placed in a symmetrical rotation along the center of the plan.Save this picture!© Roland HalbeSave this picture!SectionsSave this picture!© Roland HalbeEach wall hosts a specific use —bookshelves, closets, kitchen or chimney— and an equal door at its corner. Behind them are the bedrooms, opened to the landscape through a large window at the front, and closed to the adjoining patios through walls that encase the sliding windows of the main living room. The patios only relate to the central room. When the windows open, it becomes a large terrace open to the outside along both diagonal axes. When the bedrooms shut their doors, they disappear between the walls becoming cut off the noise and circulations of the rest of the house.Save this picture!© Roland HalbeThe structure is made of laminated pine and is left uncovered, making explicit the constant measures and joints that rule the project. The perimeter is protected by a continuous horizontal eave. The roof, made of zinc, consists of 4 series of 3 triangular planes that run from the corners of the central skylight to the corners of the external eave. The form and pitch of each plane result from the 5:7 proportion ruling the central room and the height difference between the center and the borders. The symmetric rotation of this asymmetrical form produces the figure of a whirlwind, thus blurring the difference of the concave center and the horizontal perimeter into an organic totality.Save this picture!© Roland HalbeProject gallerySee allShow lessPatrik Schumacher on Parametric Design and the Early Days of Zaha Hadid ArchitectsArticlesBicycle Parking / Ector Hoogstad ArchitectenSelected Projects Share House in el Peumo / Cristián Izquierdo Lehmann Houses House in el Peumo / Cristián Izquierdo LehmannSave this projectSaveHouse in el Peumo / Cristián Izquierdo Lehmann CopyAbout this officeCristián Izquierdo LehmannOfficeFollowProductWood#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesPeumoRoland HalbeChilePublished on July 04, 2019Cite: “House in el Peumo / Cristián Izquierdo Lehmann” [Casa en el Peumo / Cristián Izquierdo Lehmann] 04 Jul 2019.

Different interpretations of stewardship cause “culture clashes” in charities

first_imgDelegates at the Institute of Fundraising’s National Convention today heard that different concepts of stewardship of donors are generating “culture clashes” between different types of fundraisers.This development was presented jointly by Gordon Michie, director of development at telephone fundraising agency Relationship Marketing, and author of a white paper in 2007 and survey in 2008 on stewardship, and Sarah Wheeler, development and individual giving manager at Cystic Fibrosis Trust.In the “All things to all men: different types of fundraising stewardship” session, Wheeler argued that stewardship is “all things to all men and therefore nothing to any of them”. Advertisement About Howard Lake Howard Lake is a digital fundraising entrepreneur. Publisher of UK Fundraising, the world’s first web resource for professional fundraisers, since 1994. Trainer and consultant in digital fundraising. Founder of Fundraising Camp and co-founder of Researching massive growth in giving. She outlined three types of culture clash:• A clash of stewardship ideologies• A clash of stewardship definition• A clash between fundraisers and other charity staff over the need for stewardship in the first place.She gave an example of a clash of ‘ideology’ between herself as a proactive steward (a major fundraiser) and a passive steward (a donor service manager).A donor had given £200 and asked that this should be restricted to a specific element of a project. She believed that this would not be a cost effective use of the donation given the staff time it would take up to meet the necessary reporting back.Wheeler said: “I spoke to the donor services manager, who was processing the donation, and asked him if he would go back to the donor and ask her to consider making the gift less tightly restricted – explaining how this would ensure her gift would go further.“If at the end of the conversation she still wanted her gift to be restricted we would do so.“He refused to even have the conversation with the donor. In his view the donor had already expressed their wishes that the gift be restricted and we should respect those wishes.“We had a clash because we were both applying the principles of ‘stewardship’ but at different levels. He passive, mine proactive.“Passive stewardship had made things less flexible and ironically removed the opportunity to build a deeper level of understanding with a supporter.”Michie said that he wasn’t surprised that this kind of clash occurs “if fundraisers persist in referring to different degrees of relationships with their donors by the same name”.He agreed with Wheeler that discussing stewardship with other fundraisers is like “trying to compare apples and pears but not even realising there are pears in the fruit basket”.The Relationship Marketing Stewardship Survey report can be downloaded AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis Tagged with: Institute of Fundraising Marketing stewardshipcenter_img  35 total views,  1 views today AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis Different interpretations of stewardship cause “culture clashes” in charities Howard Lake | 3 July 2009 | Newslast_img read more

Butterweed is that Yellow Flower in Farm Fields

first_img Yellow flowers are ButterweedIf you travel rural roads in the Hoosier state and around the nation for that matter, you’ve probably noticed a lot of yellow flowers in the fields. The bright yellow in fields stretches from Texas east to Florida, northward along the Atlantic coast to Virginia, and back west to Nebraska. The growth is actually a weed called butterweed, says University of Illinois Weed Scientist Aaron Hager.“Butterweed is a species that typically germinates and emerges in the fall,” he explained. “It will overwinter as a small rosette of leaves, and then about late April to early part of May it bolts and produces these very bright, showy yellow flowers.”The bad news for farmers is that because the plant has flowered it is going to get much harder to control.“So when you see the flowers of the winter annual species that typically means that these plants are nearing completion of their life cycle. So we see the bright yellow flowers now and in a few weeks a lot of those yellow flowers would be replaced by little white tufts of actual seed at the top of the plant where the flower is right now. So many times on the larger plants, simply because of large they are, how close they are to completing their life cycle, some of the burndown herbicides can tend to struggle a bit more compared with the level of control we see when these applications are made say during the rosette stage or early growth stages.”Farmers always seem to find a way to control weeds and they’ll find a way with yellow butterweed too.Source: NAFB News Service Butterweed is that Yellow Flower in Farm Fields Facebook Twitter Home Indiana Agriculture News Butterweed is that Yellow Flower in Farm Fields SHARE Previous articleConsolidation Continues: Kubota to Acquire Great Plans ManufacturingNext articleNE Indiana Lagging Behind in Planting Andy Eubank Facebook Twitter SHARE By Andy Eubank – May 16, 2016 last_img read more

University Hospital Limerick part of nationwide expansion of cutting edge study

first_imgEmail Print RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR From Left: Rita Hinchion, UL HRI CRSU, Dr Maeve Skelly, Dr Manus Moloney and Elaine Conway, UL HRI CRSU.Picture: Liam Burke Irish life sciences company Genomics Medicine Ireland today announced that the Health Research Institute through the UL/UL Hospitals Clinical Research Support Unit (CRSU) at University Hospital Limerick (UHL) and affiliated hospitals will form part of a nationwide expansion of its cutting-edge genomics study into Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD), the first of its kind in Ireland.UL Hospital Group is one of six additional research sites to begin collaborating with GMI in this pioneering research, resulting in a total of nine centres in five regions nationwide that are now part of an initiative that aims to identify genetic markers that can help diagnose, predict disease severity and identify personalised treatments for people with IBD.The six new sites are University Hospital Limerick; University Hospital Galway; Cork and Mercy University Hospitals; Beaumont Hospital Dublin; and St. James’s Hospital Dublin. They join Tallaght Hospital, St. Vincent’s University Hospital, and hospitals in the Western Health and Social Care Trust area, Northern Ireland, in conjunction with the Clinical Translational Research Centre (C-TRIC) at Altnagelvin Hospital site in Derry/Londonderry, who participated in the study’s initial launch late last year.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up The announcement coincides with World IBD Day (19th May) which seeks to raise awareness and support the more than ten million people around the world and over 20,000 people in Ireland living with inflammatory bowel diseases (IBD), an umbrella term for chronic inflammatory gastrointestinal disorders primarily affecting adults in the prime of their life. There are two major forms of IBD – Crohn’s disease (CD) and Ulcerative colitis (UC) – which are life-long conditions for which there is currently no known cause or cure.Onset is typically in childhood or in young adults so IBD has potential to impact educational performance and work productivity, as well as quality of life. Crohn’s Disease is associated with increased mortality in the Irish population[2] and there is an increased risk of colon cancer to people with either Crohn’s disease or Ulcerative Colitis. Ireland has one of the highest rates of Colitis in the world.Senator Ged Nash, Crohn’s patient and Patron of the Irish Society for Colitis and Crohn’s Disease (ISCC), commented, “I am excited by Genomics Medicine Ireland’s expansion of its IBD genomic research study across the island Ireland, which greatly increases its potential for discovering new medication, tailored treatments, or even one day finding a cure for this pervasive disease. I was diagnosed with Crohn’s when I was 14 years old, and throughout my adult life I have sought to help to raise awareness of what it means to live with IBD, both through informative events with the ISCC and via my various roles in the Oireachtas. I truly feel that this will be a sea change in the fight against IBD.”Dr. Maeve Skelly, UHL, added, “We invite our patients to learn more about this innovative research. It’s exciting to be a part of a nationwide collaboration of discovery into the genetic factors of IBD to help patients here in Ireland and, potentially, have relevant findings for people worldwide living with IBD.”People with IBD attending any of the participating research centres and who are interested in participating in the study can ask their consultant for more information.More about health here.

Revealed: Cocaine in the Bod

An investigation by Cherwell into drug use around Oxford has discovered suggestions of traces of cocaine in a number of locations. The tests, which were carried out using chemical cocaine swabs over three days, are part of the most comprehensive investigation into student drug habits among Oxford students in recent years. The investigation includes an anonymous survey of 650 students from across the University.Tests were carried out in ten different locations, six of which produced in positive results for cocaine. These locations were the Oxford Union, the Old Bodleian Library, the Bodleian Radcliffe Camera, the Manor Road Building (where the Social Sciences Library is located), the Ruskin School of Drawing and Fine Art, and the Oxford University Language centre. This evidence of cocaine in university libraries is particularly alarming, as it is suggestive of non-recreational cocaine consumption.The swabs, which offer an immediate result confirming or denying the presence of cocaine traces, were used to wipe surfaces in all locations in the bathrooms, including toilet seats, cisterns, and other flat surfaces. The tests were purchased from, a drug detection company based in Lancashire established by former policeman Dave Rigg. Pictures of the positive results were sent to the manufacturer in order to check their veracity.[mm-hide-text]%%IMG_ORIGINAL%%8908%%[/mm-hide-text]Cocaine swab result for the Old Bodleian LibraryMr Rigg, speaking to Cherwell, said that the cocaine tests used in the investigation are “well-known and used in the scientific community”, and have an accuracy of 95 per cent in detecting street-level cocaine.In light of Cherwell’s findings, a spokesperson for Oxford University commented, “We do not believe there is a problem of widespread cocaine use at Oxford University, and note that the accuracy of the cocaine test swabs would probably not stand up as evidence in court. The findings are of concern, however, and the relevant University authorities have requested more information about how this investigation was carried out. “The University advises those who are abusing any substance to seek help. There is a range of support available, promoted by the University, the colleges and the student union.”The swabs are soaked in Cobalt thiocyanate, a pink substance, and turn blue when in contact with cocaine. Whilst the cocaine swabs act as a presumptive test, their accuracy means that they are a strong indicator that cocaine has been used in places where a positive result is detected.David Rigg stressed, “It has been (wrongly) suggested in the past that a) the cocaine ‘blew in’ from the outside and was deposited on the surface and b) cocaine has been deposited by placing a bank note on a surface.“Our swabs are designed to work at milligram levels of cocaine, so a substantial amount must have been present on the surface initially. The presence of cocaine on banknotes are recorded at nanogram levels which would not ‘trip’ the chemistry of the swab.”Tests carried out in the Turl Street Kitchen, the English Faculty Library, the Examinations Schools and the Oxford University Student Union resulted in no cocaine traces being detected.[mm-hide-text]%%IMG_ORIGINAL%%8909%%[/mm-hide-text]Cocaine swab result for the Oxford UnionA similar investigation into cocaine usage carried out by Cherwell in 2008 discovered evidence of cocaine in both OUSU and the Oxford Union. Comparable surveys have also been conducted in the past by student journalists in Exeter and York universities, where evidence of cocaine on university property was revealed. Similar swabs were also used by a German television station to test for cocaine in the European Parliament in 2005.A spokesperson for the Oxford Union told Cherwell, “Any form of drug use on the premises of the Oxford Union constitutes serious misconduct and is absolutely not tolerated. As the buildings are open to all members and their guests, and are often hired out, there is a possibility that such instances could occur, despite the fact that there are always security staff on our premises. If an incident involving drug use is discovered, it is taken extremely seriously, and we co-operate closely with the police on the issue.” read more
