Due to the overdevelopment of urban areas, the distance between the buildings across the street is only four meters wide.Save this picture!© Jin-Ming ZhengRecommended ProductsRenders / 3D AnimationAUGmentectureAugmented Reality Platform – AUGmentecture™DoorsStudcoAccess Panels – AccessDorDoorsECLISSESliding Pocket Door – ECLISSE LuceDoorsLinvisibileLinvisibile Curved Hinged Door | AlbaSince the site is hidden in the alley, this area still keeps its serenity in the bustling city. Opening up the common space not only augments the street width, it also provides more interactions between the users and the surroundings. However, such transparency does not affect the resident’s privacy because the pond in the lobby sets a boundary between public and private.Save this picture!© Jin-Ming Zheng“Space and Concept”The main concern is to capture the history of this neighborhood in the design principle. Our design evolves from the idea of slowing down busy lives of the urban dwellers by adding more green spaces to each and every resident unit. Its form naturally occurs by stacking the modules on top of each other.Save this picture!© Jin-Ming ZhengInstead of having the usual one large unit per floor, a double height, two units per floor type is adopted. The front door of each unit is located at alternate levels, therefore making each unit having its own entry lobby. To solve the issue of privacy from the building across the road, the windows for the living room are facing inside, looking out at the balcony next to a solid wall.Save this picture!Diagram 1The double height balcony provides ample of sunshine to the living room. Looking at the balcony from the lift lobby is a reminder of such nostalgic experience of going home through a garden. The private lift opens up to the sky garden in every unit. This mimics the traditional Taiwanese housing and thus responds to the history of the surroundings. The main feature of the façade is formed by the combination of various slabs- the roughness of masonry cladding on the exterior wall speaks to the texture of the street while the white-pebbled wall brightens the sky garden from the reflection of the sun.Save this picture!© Jin-Ming ZhengProject gallerySee allShow lessUnified Architectural Theory: Chapter 8ArticlesB-AND-BEE Introduces Honeycomb Campsites for FestivalsArchitecture NewsProject locationAddress:Taipei City, TaiwanLocation to be used only as a reference.

Enthuse launches product to help charities with virtual event building

first_img  275 total views,  1 views today AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis4 Tagged with: virtual event Enthuse launches product to help charities with virtual event building The map will be displayed across the charity’s event page as well as all individual and team fundraising pages, enabling supporters to keep track of their progress visually. Event leaderboards will show who has finished the route, sorted by the fastest finisher, giving charities ways to incentivise and reward supporters. The team pages will also show how much distance has been covered by everyone, and how many members have completed the route. Key route milestones will be displayed on the map, such as Big Ben or the Cutty Sark for the London Marathon, to help keep participants motivated, and custom start and finish pins can be set for the route. Progress along the route can be automatically tracked via a linked Strava account or participants can upload manual activities if they are using a different fitness app. Speaking about the launch, Chester Mojay-Sinclare, Enthuse Founder and CEO, commented:“Virtual events have proved a crucial lifeline for charities throughout the pandemic to maintain their fundraising income. We know supporters want more though – two thirds of Gen Z and half of millennials tell us they are interested in map and milestone based-challenges, and the launch of Virtual Journeys will help charities deliver this. “When physical fundraising events start to come back, Virtual Journeys will also allow charities to broaden participation by opening up their events to supporters wherever they are based, as well as creating unique virtual events where supporters team up to try and run a distance together like the length of the British coastline.” Guy Aubertin, Director of Fundraising and Operations for Walk The Walk said: “The development of virtual event capability is allowing us to launch a new version of our London Moonwalk. We are creating a 52 mile version of the event using the Virtual Journeys product, and are delighted to be able to bring this new challenge to our supporters, under our own brand.” The launch of Virtual Journeys is part of Enthuse’s ongoing platform development, which has recently included the launch of virtual races, manual activity uploads and live streaming as well as leaderboards and milestones.Main image: by Tirachard Kumtanom from Pexels Melanie May | 26 January 2021 | Newscenter_img Enthuse has launched a new product aimed at helping charities build fun virtual events and increase revenue. Virtual Journeys is a set of map-based challenges, with both pre-made and bespoke maps that are powered by Google Maps. Pre-made maps available at launch include courses for the London Marathon, the Inca Trail, the London to Brighton Cycle Ride, and Lands End to John O’Groats. Charities can define how participants take part in the challenges – whether it’s a run, walk or cycle – as well as how long the challenge lasts for and if it’s a team or individual based activity. Charities will also be able to work with Enthuse to build their own bespoke maps for courses and fundraising events.  Advertisement About Melanie May Melanie May is a journalist and copywriter specialising in writing both for and about the charity and marketing services sectors since 2001.

Wells Fargo Indiana Weather Forecast 3/12/2015

first_img Previous articleFarm Bureau Says EPA’s Proposed Air Quality Standards Harmful to AgNext articleMorning Outlook Hoosier Ag Today Facebook Twitter Home News Feed Wells Fargo Indiana Weather Forecast 3/12/2015 By Hoosier Ag Today – Mar 12, 2015 Facebook Twitter SHARE SHARE Wells Fargo Indiana Weather Forecast 3/12/2015 High pressure gives another warm day today with south wind flow up the backside of the high.There really is no change in the short term forecast either, with a nice slug of rain moving in over the state from tomorrow through the first half of Saturday. This  rain will be the heaviest from US 24 southward, but will actually end up hitting about 75% of the state, an improvement in coverage over the past 24 hours. Rain totals will be from a tenth to nearly an inch, with the heaviest over the southern half of the state.Air stays warm in the wake of this system, and we will see Sunday and even Monday be well above normal. Temps may even push into the lower 60s on Monday up to the Michigan line.Colder air comes behind a front for next Tuesday. This front comes out of a Canadian low that travels across the great lakes. Precipiation will be minor, and will mostly be confined to the northern third of the state Tuesday, with up to a tenth or two possible. However the colder air begins to work in behind for the second half of next week and will actually max out around the  20th and 21st. That will be right about when another frontal boundary sweeps through bringing rain, and perhaps a bit of wet snow to the north We are still looking for temps to be much warmer than the last cold snap, though. Temps will be from the upper 30s to mid 40s at the coldest part of the airmass, which will equate to about 10 degrees below normal.The extended period shows a couple more systems workint ghroughy from the 21st to the 26th. Rains from those systems will likely be under half an inch.BEYOND INDIANA:CORN WeatherArgentina sees a front move through late this week through the weekend that brings half to 1 inch rains to 70% of corn areas, and then a front stalls late next week over southern Cordoba and southern Buenos Aires province. That front can bring an other half to 1 inch. Mostly dry for the rest of the period. A drier trend has started to emerge over southern Matto Grosso do Sul, Parana and areas down through RGDS. This dry trend holds until late next Monday and Tuesday, when showers and storms are back and can bring half to 1 inch rain totals. South and eastern parts of the US corn belt are in line to get some rains off an on over the next 10 days to 2 weeks. IN, OH, KY, along with southern IL and southern MO will see half to 2 inch rains. Farther north and west, very little moisture is coming in over the short haul. Temps will be 10-20 degrees above normal through the end of the week, but then closer to normal next week. Snowmelt can provide anywhere from 1-3 inches of water for the rest of the week, which will be needed in western parts of the Corn Belt where rains miss. SOYBEAN WeatherA slow moving frontal complex moves across Brazil soy areas through the rest of the week, with the highest frequency rains coming from late tonight through Saturday. In this timeframe, we can see quarter to half inch totals each day, and the next 7 days can see rain totals at or above 2 inches. We should see a drier pattern emerge starting Sunday and continuing most of next week, with the exception being western Matto Grosso…scattered to spotty rains may hang around locally through the week next week, but will not be part of a bigger pattern. Heavy rains are still a concern here in the Deep South as we move toward planting of early beans here in a few weeks. The first big batch of rain is done, but we see two more systems in the next 10 days that come through, and they can bring another 1-3 inches of rain for the period. We also are trending toward a continuation of the wet pattern for the 11-16 day period. WHEAT Weather No change in the overall pattern. Most of HRW areas are warm and dry through the next 10 days, and the next good chance of precipitation may not develop until closer to the 20th. However, in east TX and OK, we do see heavier rains in the short term with 3 systems between now and the 19th. This will help east and southeast HRW areas. SRW areas continue to be divided north from south. Northern areas see combined 10 day rains from a tenth to half an inch. Southern SRW areas will be more in the half to 2 inch range. Temps above normal this week. Near normal next week, below normal after the 19th. Ukraine sees 10 day rain totals from half to 1 inch. Farther east, other parts of Western Russia and FSU areas are seeing lesser amounts. The totals are similar to what we saw yesterday, but we are seeing rains hold together better coming out of Eastern Europe as they come into Ukraine. This gradual shift in pattern should bring slightly better rains eventually into Russian growing regions, but for now, we keep them drier at half an inch or less for the entire 10 day period.  Kazakhstan also looks to stay dry, especially in the west. Temps well above normal.  In Australia, models suggest slightly better rains in Western Australia, but lesser rains in NSW over the 10 day period. In general, the changes are not enough for us to change our forecast, and the trend is still drier than we would like as we move toward planting in a few weeks. CATTLE Weather Normal to above normal temps for most cattle areas this week and next Heavy rains miss beef production areas in the central plains, but may impact feedyards in east Texas. Dairy areas stay dry, but warmer than normal. HOG Weather No major issues in hog areas, although we will see more moisture over OH valley areas in the next 10 days. Large snow melt equals mud…but not enough to make major headlines, as the bulk of hog areas had been drier than normal going into the heavy snows, and the soil profile will soak up moisture readily.last_img read more

As Chirac opens Legion of Honour museum, activists outside sport its insignia in protest against its award to Putin

The museum, which was closed for five years for renovations, is dedicated to the history of the medal and the men and women who have worn it.“As French citizens, we are appalled by the decision to bestoy France’s highest award on someone like Putin,” Reporters Without Borders said. “The Legion of Honour is given to foreign citizens for services to France or the causes it supports. But 21 journalists, including Anna Politkovskaya, Paul Klebnikov, Valeri Ivanov and Alexei Sidorov, have been killed in Russia because of their work, with alarming impunity, since Putin became president in March 2000.”The organisation added: “It is a scandal that this award has gone to a man whose words and deeds display complete disdain for freedom of expression and human rights in general. We think we are worthier than Mr. Putin to receive this medal and, to protest against the decision to give it to a ‘press freedom predator,’ we chose to wear its insignia, knowing we were violating article 433-7 of the criminal code.”On 20 October, Reporters Without Borders asked the French Council of State and Chirac, as Grand Master of the Order of the Legion of Honour, to strip Putin of the Grand Cross of the Legion of Honour, its highest rank, which he was given on 22 September.Among his many outrageous comments to the press in the past, Putin has said he wanted “to wipe out Chechen terrorists in the shit-house,” described the independent press as “means of mass disinformation and tools for combatting the state,” and told a French journalist who asked about Chechnya to come for “a circumcision in Moscow so nothing grows back Follow the news on Belarus RSF_en As President Chirac opened the newly-refurbished Legion of Honour museum today in Paris, Reporters Without Borders activists gathered outside wearing dummy copies of the medal in protest against his recent decision to award it to a “press freedom predator,” Russian leader Vladimir Putin.
