Perched on the eastern spur of Linden in the lower Blue Mountains, sat a project home partially completed in 2003. The new owners, a young couple, decided after suffering through several cold winters that it was time to renovate the house into a thermally comfortable family home.Save this picture!© Barton TaylorThe clients originally wanted to maintain the two existing pavilions: one for guest accommodation and the other for ancillary spaces and create a new dwelling to the east, increasing floor space to accommodate a family and capture the surrounding bushland and easterly views across the Sydney basin to the harbour and city.Save this picture!Site PlanASA proposed an alternate way of thinking about the site with the main principles of respecting the bushland at the core and re-using as much of the existing built form, services and structure as possible to reduce waste and manage costs. From this re-interpretation of the existing “L-House” was created: re-using the north-eastern pavilion for the parents, flowing to a new central family link, which would navigate the level changes in the landscape to connect with the existing east-west pavilion, housing the children’s area, an office and ancillary spaces. This consolidation of the built form created a single eastern elevation where the sweeping views to the city skyline could be appreciated from multiple living spaces.Save this picture!© Barton TaylorConversely, the L-shaped house formed a new western entry to the property to curate the appreciation of the natural bushland setting as you enter the site. The low window-to-wall ratio on the west enabled a celebration of the sleek zincalume cladding. The simplicity and rhythm of the material provides a striking contrast to the natural bushland, with the zincalume shimmering on approach, reflecting the colours of the day. The material however also serves a greater purpose: fire protection. The close proximity of the natural bushland meant the external envelope had to be robust and non-combustible in order to meet the highest level of bushfire protection construction set in the original 2003 DA. As such, the house is effectively wrapped in zincalume cladding with bushfire rated hardwood used as feature elements to soften moments of connection.Save this picture!© Barton TaylorFor an alteration and addition L-House achieves a solid NATHERS rating of 7.6 stars, well exceeding the 4 stars required in the 2014 s96 approval. Many initiatives have been undertaken to ensure L-House provides a high performance thermal envelope for its residents to cope with the extreme heat and cold of Linden, these include: stripping back the old pavilions and completely re-insulating, using thermally broken window frames and lowering the window to wall ratio. This means L-House has a lower peak demand which in turn reduces the overall residential demand on peak days, which Ausgrid estimates increases the size of their power stations by 147% and is a key initiative on moving to a greener grid.Save this picture!© Barton TaylorThe design and construction teams worked in an integrated manner to manage the complexities of environmental protection, bushfire mitigation and the re-use of services and structure. The outcome is a highly crafted home that celebrates its natural environment and delivers a low operational energy comfortable home.Save this picture!© Barton TaylorSave this picture!SectionsProject gallerySee allShow lessWhite Box / Ayutt and Associates DesignSelected ProjectsINTERNATIONAL WORKSHOP RCR 2018: III International Workshop of ScenographyWorkshop Share “COPY” “COPY” L-House / Alexander Symes Architect Architects: Alexander Symes Architect Area Area of this architecture project Projects Australia CopyAbout this officeAlexander Symes ArchitectOfficeFollowProductsWoodGlassSteel#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesLindenAustraliaPublished on April 19, 2018Cite: “L-House / Alexander Symes Architect ” 18 Apr 2018.

The final appeal total is often nearly double the amount raised on the night.Sir Terry Wogan, who hosted the programme, announced the total at the end of the seven-hour event, saying “Thank you to the British people in these tough times to come up with that kind of money on behalf of Britain’s children.” This was the 32nd annual BBC Children in Need telethon appeal.The event featured band One Direction with their single ‘What Makes You Beautiful’, TV presenter Matt Baker who had cycled a rickshaw from Edinburgh to London in the week running up to the event, TV newsreaders dancing (including Angela Rippon, the original dancing TV newsreader), Lord Alan Sugar, JLS, Gok Wan, the Eastenders cast and the case of The Wizard of Oz.Newly launched social currency Blue Dot also partnered with the appeal, offering exclusive content from stars performing backstage at the Children in Need Rocks Manchester concert. Viewers could access this content by cashing in blue dots, which they earn by donating or volunteering.BBC Radio 2’s audience contributed £2,032,642 and Matt Baker’s Rickshaw Challenge raised £1,263,272. The audience in Wales raised £1,389,923, another record sum.The appeal got off to a good start: by 8pm the total stood at £4,364,411, rising to £15,274,911 at 10pm, and setting a new on-the-night record by midnight at £22,207,844 with two hours still to go.www.bbc.co.uk/pudsey AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis BBC Children in Need raises £26m on the night Tagged with: BBC Children in Need Celebrity Events Research / statistics About Howard Lake Howard Lake is a digital fundraising entrepreneur.

Syria Crisis Impacts Ethanol, RFS Debate

first_imgHome News Feed Syria Crisis Impacts Ethanol, RFS Debate 2013 is the 40th anniversary of the first OPEC oil embargo which crippled the US economy and created a gasoline shortage in the US that is legendary to this day. Audio Playerhttps://www.hoosieragtoday.com//wp-content/uploads//2013/09/Growth-energy-wrap.mp300:0000:0000:00Use Up/Down Arrow keys to increase or decrease volume.President Obama has stated he wants Congress to decide on the US course of action in Syria. At the same time, the ethanol industry is pressing lawmakers to allow greater market access by not dismantling the Renewable Fuel Standard.  Growth Energy’s General Wesley Clark says the current crisis in Syria is all about big oil and the dependence of the US on imported Middle Eastern supplies, “Do you think it is not about the relationship with Saudi Arabia, and their rivalry with Iran?   Do you think it is not about America’s dependence of Saudi Arabia’s oil supplies? Of course it is; it is totally about big oil.”  Clark made his comments during a press briefing on Monday discussing Growth Energy’s efforts to block changes to the RFS.  He added he hopes lawmakers can connect the dots between the Syrian crisis and the need for renewable fuel. SHARE Facebook Twitter SHARE Clark says that, by allowing more US produced renewable fuel into the market, the US will not have to get involved in another military action in the Middle East, “If this was taking place in Africa, the world and the US would not be all upset about it.  This is all about the powers behind the world oil business.” Clark says, by allowing more US produced fuel into the marketplace, the US economy and US consumers will not be under the thumb of foreign oil rich nations, “Saudi Arabia controls the price of oil; right now they have it at just above $100 a barrel. A year from now they will need that price to be $120 a barrel. Russia and Iran also benefit from higher oil prices.  The only one who does not benefit is the country that is suffering from it, the United States. And here we are serving their interests in Syria.” Facebook Twitter Previous articleIndiana Crops Continue to Wither With Lack of RainNext articleLucas Talks Farm Bill Extension Gary Truitt Syria Crisis Impacts Ethanol, RFS Debate By Gary Truitt – Sep 9, 2013 Over 150 ethanol advocates are in Washington this week to lobby Congress to reject the big oil monopoly of the transportation fuel market. “Big Oil has made repeal of the RFS one of its top policy priorities, and it is time the American people know that they are actively seeking to block the use of renewable fuels that are cleaner burning, less expensive, and reduce our dependence on foreign oil – it’s time to put an end to Big Oil’s campaign of misinformation to protect their bottom line by trying to eliminate competition,” said Tom Buis, President of Growth Energy.last_img read more

Reconstruction of millennial changes in dust emission, transport and regional sea ice coverage using the deep EPICA ice cores from the Atlantic and Indian Ocean sector of Antarctica

first_imgContinuous sea salt and mineral dust aerosol records have been studied on the two EPICA (European Project for Ice Coring in Antarctica) deep ice cores. The joint use of these records from opposite sides of the East Antarctic plateau allows for an estimate of changes in dust transport and emission intensity as well as for the identification of regional differences in the sea salt aerosol source. The mineral dust flux records at both sites show a strong coherency over the last 150 kyr related to dust emission changes in the glacial Patagonian dust source with three times higher dust fluxes in the Atlantic compared to the Indian Ocean sector of the Southern Ocean (SO). Using a simple conceptual transport model this indicates that transport can explain only 40% of the atmospheric dust concentration changes in Antarctica, while factor 5–10 changes occurred. Accordingly, the main cause for the strong glacial dust flux changes in Antarctica must lie in environmental changes in Patagonia. Dust emissions, hence environmental conditions in Patagonia, were very similar during the last two glacials and interglacials, respectively, despite 2–4 °C warmer temperatures recorded in Antarctica during the penultimate interglacial than today. 2–3 times higher sea salt fluxes found in both ice cores in the glacial compared to the Holocene are difficult to reconcile with a largely unchanged transport intensity and the distant open ocean source. The substantial glacial enhancements in sea salt aerosol fluxes can be readily explained assuming sea ice formation as the main sea salt aerosol source with a significantly larger expansion of (summer) sea ice in the Weddell Sea than in the Indian Ocean sector. During the penultimate interglacial, our sea salt records point to a 50% reduction of winter sea ice coverage compared to the Holocene both in the Indian and Atlantic Ocean sector of the SO. However, from 20 to 80 ka before present sea salt fluxes show only very subdued millennial changes despite pronounced temperature fluctuations, likely due to the large distance of the sea ice salt source to our drill sites.last_img read more

Child Support Conference Celebrates Training, Daily Dedication

first_imgNearly 600 Indiana child support workers and county prosecutors convened in French Lick for three days of training; they honored their peers for superior service to constituents; and potentially saved lives with an American Red Cross blood drive. The annual event is sponsored by the Indiana Prosecuting Attorneys Council with support of the Indiana Child Support Bureau. Olga Glossett, child support office manager for the Elkhart County Prosecutor’s Office, received the highest honor for a child support worker, the Beatrice Deuel Award. Named in honor of longtime St. Joseph County child support worker Beatrice Deuel, the award is presented to a retiring professional whose work exemplifies dedication and commitment to service.Ms. Glossett spent nearly 10 years with the Van Wert County, Ohio, child support office before her employment with the Elkhart County child support office in 2004. With nearly 25 years of child support commitment, she demonstrated daily her knowledge and passion to serve the program participants in a professional manner.Seven current child support workers received the K.I.D. (Kudos for Inspiration and Dedication) Award:Marion County Child Support Computer Specialist Kevin Abshire was honored for his performance of every assignment with excellence. During a recent office renovation, he assisted with furniture and computer moves while maintaining his daily job performance.Bartholomew County Caseworker Jamie Langley was nominated because she is “always conscientious” and is “accessible, straight-forward and clear when working cases.”Jefferson County Caseworker Jeanna G. Jackson was honored because “she works her cases with zeal and gusto…the 500 or 600 cases she has get dedication and attention.”St. Joseph County Enforcement Caseworker and Team Leader Tara Towner has “developed a broad understanding of all things child support…her attention to detail and diligent case tracking has resulted in successful enforcement of her cases.”Vigo County Enforcement Caseworker Debbie Conn was nominated because “she has a way of making parents give her any information that she needs” and in 15 years, has never been the subject of a complaint.Monroe County Caseworker Hattie Green has filled multiple roles in the child support office; she has good rapport with both custodial and noncustodial parents, “treating everyone with respect and professionalism”.  Kosciusko County Modification Team Lead Vickey Brooks provides “guidance and leadership to team members, both new to child support and experienced.”An additional 103 child support workers from 27 counties, as well as the Indiana Child Support Bureau, were recognized for years of service to their offices, including Madeline Baker of Marion County for 35 years of service and Cheryl Barney and Debbie Brame, both of the Child Support Bureau, for 40 years of service. Child support prosecutors and staff members demonstrated generosity by surpassing expectations for a Red Cross blood drive, donating 49 units of blood with the potential to save 147 lives.
