The wife is a skillful cook and uses plenty of the vegetables picked by her husband. Because of that, a large “Doma” (earthen floor room) *1, “Engawa” (a veranda facing the garden) *2 and “Kura” (a storage room) *3, to keep such things as homemade “miso” soybean paste, were necessary. In traditional Japanese “Minka” (the general residences for people who farmed), there are Doma, Engawa and Kura. Living in such a house is suitable for people whose life is in farming. With this project, we reconfigured each of these elements under a single roof since the aim was to build a compact and modern Minka for a nuclear family living in the countryside. Save this picture!3DThe site is in a thriving agricultural region. All these elements were arranged within one space, and from the center of the site, and with differences in height, the plan was to gradually spread out concentrically the Kura, the Engawa, the Doma, the eaves and the garden. On top of this was put a large and deep roof. The center of the building is static, and the further out you go from the center it is open and dynamic. Save this picture!© Satoshi IkumaSave this picture!SectionSave this picture!© Satoshi IkumaThe loft at the center is a calm place that is surrounded by the roof, while the wooden floor space and the tatami mat space are places where one can rest, relaxing on the floor or sleeping. The wooden floor space and the tatami mat space are a level higher than the Doma, making them veranda-like spaces that you can sit on. On the other hand, the Doma, which includes the kitchen, is an intermediate area that connects the outside and the inside, along with being a place of activity and where people circulate. It is a place that is connected to daily life, and a space where neighbors can be invited into. Save this picture!PlanSince this region is inland, the summers are hot, and the winters are also bitterly cold. Because of that, the aim was for a residence where the indoor environment was stable all year round with efficient use of energy. First, it was thermally insulated and the airtightness secured with external insulation covering the entire outside of the residence (roof 100mm, walls 50mm). The floor of Doma and the Kura at the center of the residence are concrete, thus, the inside has sufficient heat storage by using materials that are high in specific heat. Save this picture!© Satoshi IkumaWith a mass of concrete at the center that is not impacted by the sunlight, it can stabilize the indoor environment through heat accumulation and radiation. In the summer, the accumulation of cool air from the cool night wind emits coolness during the day. In winter, the Doma accumulates heat from sunlight streaming through the windows, preventing a drop in the indoor temperature from night to morning. In addition, since a rapid temperature change can be prevented, it is possible to comfortably open the windows, realizing an open and stable indoor environment. Save this picture!© Satoshi IkumaWe created a modern version of the Minka by reflecting the elements of a traditional Minka in a modern way of living.*1 Doma: In traditional Japanese Minka, these spaces are made at the same height as the ground. As outdoor-like spaces, they played an important role as workspaces where cottage industry such as agriculture and handicrafts could be done. Save this picture!© Satoshi Ikuma*2 Engawa: The part of the building’s edge that has an overhanging wood floor. A buffer space between the inside and outside that is beneath the eaves. It is an open space where one can talk to guests while relaxing with them.  Save this picture!© Satoshi Ikuma*3 Kura: A structure built separately from the house that is a storeroom or vault.

Perdue Addresses China, USMCA, and E15 at Commodity Classic

first_img SHARE By Eric Pfeiffer – Mar 3, 2019 Home Indiana Agriculture News Perdue Addresses China, USMCA, and E15 at Commodity Classic Facebook Twitter Previous articleFarmers Leave Classic with Many Issues Still UnresolvedNext articleRyan Martin’s Indiana Ag Forecast for March 4, 2019 Eric Pfeiffer Perdue Addresses China, USMCA, and E15 at Commodity ClassicAg Secretary Sonny Perdue addressed the hot topics from this year’s Commodity Classic when he spoke to the crowd Friday morning. He touched on trade with China, the agreement with Mexico and Canada and the 232 tariffs that remain on those countries, and year-round E15.Perdue testified in DC last week that the EPA would not be able to get the E15 rule created before the summer driving season based on conversations with then Acting EPA Administrator Andrew Wheeler.“Well, there’s nothing like confirmation processes to get you moving faster and he had his confirmation hearing this week, and he figured out how to get the rule done by June 1 for E15 year-round, and he was confirmed yesterday.”As it relates to Mexico and Canada, Perdue says he’s still of the opinion that those tariffs on steel and aluminum levied against them need to be removed; however, “President Trump favors tariffs. I think I have come to the conclusion that tariffs, as a leverage mechanism, are very effective. I think he’s validated that. I think once you use that leverage, I’m working to persuade him that the leverage is no longer needed unless it’s needed for enforceability going forward. I don’t believe we need that for Canada and Mexico.”Perdue reiterated throughout his speech that President Trump has the American farmer’s back. He shared a story from when Chinese Vice Premier Liu was in the Oval Office and agreed to purchase an additional 10 million metric tons of soybeans as trade negotiations progressed. The story was greeted with applause from the crowd.“President Trump looked at Ambassador Lighthizer and Treasury Secretary Mnuchin, who’d been leading those discussions. He said, ‘It sounds like you all are making real progress on this intellectual property thing and technology and that’s all good, but I want you to take care of our farmers,’ and that’s a direct quote from President Trump and I appreciate it.”Indiana and National Corn Board Member Denny Maple told HAT after the speech that he largely credits Perdue for keeping agriculture a priority for President Trump.“He keeps reminding the president where his base came from and it’s the Midwest and the middle of the country. It’s an important segment to our nation’s economy, the ag sector, more than some people realize. We here in the Midwest understand that agriculture is important and the number of jobs that supported by agriculture, not necessarily on farm jobs, but other manufacturing jobs and so forth that is so important to this country.” SHARE Facebook Twitter Perdue Addresses China, USMCA, and E15 at Commodity Classiclast_img read more

TCU Rifle kicks off season with record setting weekend

first_imgTCU baseball finds their biggest fan just by saying hello Settlement reached between TCU, former professor in discrimination lawsuit printThe TCU Rifle team began the 2017 season in record-setting fashion this past weekend. At the Memphis Tiger Invitational on Saturday, the Horned Frogs defeated the field of nine teams handily, scoring almost 100 more points than Navy, who finished in second. The teams aggregate score of 4,728 points tied a school record. Senior Mindy Miles posted a personal-best aggregate score of 1189 (out of 1200) on Saturday, firing a 599 in Air Rifle and a 590 in Smallbore. Elizabeth Marsh followed Miles with an 1181 aggregate score, including a 589 in Smallbore that set the NCAA record for the highest score ever fired by a freshman in their first collegiate match. In total, the Horned Frogs had the top five aggregate scores of the invitational, and tied the second highest marks in school history in both Air Rifle and Smallbore aggregate scores. “I couldn’t have asked for a better start to the season,” head coach Karen Monez said. “With the record-setting scores fired this weekend, this team is going to continue to raise the bar.”Continuing their success on Sunday at the Ole Miss Invite, TCU defeated a field of 12 other teams, posting an aggregate score of 4,726 that tied for the third-best mark in program history. Sophomore Casey Lutz set a personal best in the Air Rifle with a score of 596 while junior Rachel Garner, senior Ariana Grabowski, and sophomore Rachel Kimbell all tied their personal bests. These performances gave the team an Air Rifle aggregate score of 2,381, besting the mark set the day before for the second highest in school history. Mindy Miles continued her impressive weekend by posting an aggregate score of 1,193, which broke her own personal record set on Saturday and is the second highest score in TCU history.  The Horned Frogs will head to The Citadel Saturday where they will take place in an invitational with two other schools.

Reporters Without Borders calls on candidates in presidential election to make commitment to respect press freedom

first_img RwandaAfrica November 27, 2020 Find out more RwandaAfrica Reports August 18, 2003 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Reporters Without Borders calls on candidates in presidential election to make commitment to respect press freedom With the presidential election in Rwanda just one week away, Reporters Without Borders has called on each of the four candidates to make a personal commitment to respect press freedom.”We urge you to take a public stand on this issue and to recommend concretemeasures to promote press freedom,” the organisation said to each of thefour candidates. The candidates include current President Paul Kagame,former prime minister Faustin Twagiramungu, former parliamentarianJean-Népomuscène Nayinzira and Alivera Mukabaramba, the first woman to joina presidential election race in Rwanda.”News coverage is all the same in Rwanda, and the few independent newspapersthat do exist operate in difficult circumstances,” the organisationunderlined, while recalling that these publications are quite often thetarget of administrative harassment. Reporters Without Borders also recalled that the first issue of one such independent paper, “Indorerwamo”, was seized by police in April 2003.Reporters Without Borders also deplored the fact that Rwanda remains one of the last countries in the region and on the African continent to not have any private audio-visual media outlets. In fact, Rwandan authorities point to the example of thebroadcaster Milles Collines Free Radio-television in order to highlight thepotential danger that private radio stations could represent for thecountry. Reporters Without Borders considers this argument to be obsolete in the current context.Reporters Without Borders also raised the cases of Dominique Makeli and Tatiana Mukakibibi, two imprisoned journalists whom it has supported for many years. The organisation believes these journalists did nothing more than exercise their professional duties and has urged the presidential candidates to make a commitment to release them both as soon as possible.Makeli, formerly with Radio Rwanda, has been detained in Kigali’s centralprison since 1994. Kigali State Prosecutor Sylvaire Gatambiye told Reporters Without Borders in October 2001 that Makeli had “incited people to genocide with his reports.” In May 1994, the journalist covered an alleged apparition of the Virgin Mary in the western town of Kibeho and had reported her supposed words, “The parent is in heaven.” The prosecutor said that at the time, this would have meant”President (Juvenal) Habyarimana is in heaven.” Listeners would haveinterpreted this as divine support for the former president and, byextension, the policy of exterminating Tutsis. Reporters Without Borders obtained a recording of the broadcast and played it to several Rwandans. None interpreted it to be an incitement to hatred.Mukakibibi was an on-air host and programme producer at Radio Rwanda. Shehosted entertainment and music programmes. On 6 April 1994, she was onassignment in Cyangugu, in eastern Rwanda. On 4 July 1994, Mukakibibi soughtrefuge with other journalists in Bukavu, Democratic Republic of Congo. Shereturned to Rwanda on 10 August and went to Kapgayi (near Gitarama), whereshe had started working with Father André Sibomana. Police arrested her ather Ntenyo (Gitarama) home in early October 1996. She was thrown into acommon cell, where she is still being held in very harsh conditions.In the months following her arrest, the journalist was accused of eithermurdering Eugène Bwanamudogo or having him killed. Bwanamudogo was a Tutsi who produced radio programmes for the Ministry of Agriculture. A witness who was living with Mukakibibi at the time of the genocide told Reporters Without Borders that she could not have killed Bwanamudogo because he had reportedly died during the first days of the genocide, when the journalist was on assignment in Cyangugu. Moreover, one of Bwanamudogo’s brothers reportedly told this samewitness that his brother was killed by soldiers. Mukakibibi is thought tohave been arrested at the instigation of Bwanamudogo’s sister Laetitia. Thetwo families were rivals. The journalist’s brother, Damascène Muhinda,allegedly took part in the massacre of several of Bwanamudogo’s familymembers.

Johansing Golf Tournament and Dinner this past weekend. To celebrate the landmark year, FSHA honored five men who were integral to the beginnings of the golf tournament: John Krappman (in place of his father, Andy Krappman), Angelo Mozilo, Bob Pernecky, Mike Smith and Tim Smith.The event was also spread over two days, a tournament first. On Sunday evening, more than 100 guests attended a cocktail party and dinner at Oakmont Country Club. At the dinner, folks bid on live auction items (including a much-wanted bobble head of Sr. Carolyn McCormack, O.P. and Sr. Celeste Marie Botello, O.P.), took part in a jewelry raffle, and of course, a paddle pledge. All money raised goes to scholarship money for FSHA students with financial need. “Nothing is better than helping these young ladies and their families,” said Honorary Chair Mike Smith. One such student had the chance to thank the crowd at the dinner on Sunday night. “Flintridge Sacred Heart Academy has been a school that has enriched me in countless ways,” said senior Rebecca Calix, “Without the benefit of the Johansing scholarship, my dream of attending Flintridge Sacred Heart Academy would never have been realized. I will never forget your generosity.”On Monday, golfers took to the links at Oakmont, teeing off at 11:00 a.m. Golfers had a chance to putt for cash, double their money with a “hit the heart” hole, and try to for a hole in one for a new Prius (donated by Mike Smith of Bob Smith Toyota). Lunch was served on the course, and all the players met up afterward for drinks and hors d’oeuvres on Oakmont’s patio. There, players received prizes, including former Dodger Adrian Beltre for longest drive, and celebrated a fun day on the golf course.Flintridge Sacred Heart Academy, 440 Saint Katherine Drive, La Cañada Flintridge, (626) 685-8500 or visit www.fsha.org.

County Will Study Increasing Firefighting Air Fleet After Explosive Growth of Destructive Sand Fire

first_imgHome of the Week: Unique Pasadena Home Located on Madeline Drive, Pasadena The Los Angeles County Fire Department and the Chief Executive Office will review the feasibility of purchasing, leasing, and partnering with other public entities for the operation of SuperScoopers, rotary, and fixed-wing aircrafts, on a motion by Supervisor Michael D. Antonovich.“As a result of the County’s 52-week fire season, it is vital that we maintain the best arsenal and resources to protect life and property,” said Antonovich.This report will include a comprehensive assessment of the current aircraft program to provide strategic replacement and expansion recommendations for rotary and fixed-wing aircraft.As of Tuesday night, the Sand Fire had burned through more than 37,700 acres of the Santa Clarita Valley and was called 25% contained, according to the Los Angeles County Fire Department.Authorities said one person has died, at least 18 homes have been destroyed and an estimated 20,000 residents evacuated during the blaze.Cal Fire has deployed water-dropping helicopters, which scoop water from the ocean, and jet-powered fixed wing aircraft to combat the blaze.On Tuesday, an illegal drone reportedly was spotted over the blaze and brought aircraft firefighting to a halt for safety reasons.CNBC reported that incidents of drone intrusions over wildfires has more than doubled from 2014 to 2015, according to the Interior Department, and said that the U.S. Forest Service is partnering with drone companies to develop  new technology which could literally ground the unmanned flying machines in similar cases.

Board President & Interim CEO Mike Bryant shared, “Our goal is to keep the staff together and continue being a community resource. We had to make the difficult decision to furlough our part-time employees, those who work on the museum floor. Our full-time employees, with the exception of our maintenance and animal care teams, are working remotely and finding new ways to engage our members and community during this closure.

General admission, memberships, group visits, camps, and site rentals generate nearly 80% of the budget, now more than ever, the museum will rely on fundraising. In response to this immediate need, the board of directors and several major donors have stepped forward with a $50,000 matching gift campaign.“We are calling on the community to participate,” shared Chief Development Officer Christine Franke. “We encourage everyone to make a donation, of any amount, to help match this $50,000 as quickly as possible. The museum will continue to engage and support families in creative and meaningful ways as we navigate this situation together. When we emerge from this period of physical distancing, our kids and grandkids are going to need to return to a safe, familiar place. We need to keep Kidspace strong, so we will be ready to re-open when the time is right.”To make a donation towards Kidspace’s $50,000 matching gift campaign, visit kidspacemuseum.org/donate or call (626) 243-4511.
