House Vihavainen is situated on a exceptionally beautiful lake side plot in Punkaharju, Finland. The form and materials were inspired by the surronding nature with its rushes, stones and tall pine-trees. Large windows bring the nature inside to be a part of the everyday life. Weathered wood and low mass lifted from the ground gives the building humbleness and modesty in the beautiful Finnish landscape.

Inspired by the unique relation to the woods, the objective was to create a house that brings the forest inside through large glass panels – and create an ever-changing seasonal backdrop for the interior living spaces.Save this picture!Floor PlanThe aim was also to create a child-friendly house with dedicated areas for playing – and combine it with the challenges inherent in the local regulations; for example the house could only be one storey tall, and had to occupy less than 20 percent of the site area.Save this picture!© Julian WeyerThe solution was a partially underground parterre floor which acts as the building’s base, with children’s rooms, playrooms and access to an outdoor patio. The upper part, covered with dark patinated zinc, is seemingly hovering above this base. It contains living rooms with multiple aspects, facing the forest and treetops on one side, and receiving plenty of daylight from the other – and with access to a raised south- facing wooden terrace with sitting-steps.Save this picture!© Julian WeyerProject gallerySee allShow lessSnøhetta Chosen to Design Le Monde Headquarters in ParisArchitecture NewsThrough the Lens: The Social Implications of Green Roofs in FilmArticles Share CopyAbout this officeC.F.

Crop Conditions Remain Stable

first_img Early week rainfall brought much needed relief to fields throughout the State, according to Greg Matli, State Statistician, USDA, NASS, Indiana Field Office. While above average rainfall helped replenish soil moisture, some fields with light soils were still in need of rain. The average temperature for the week was 73.1 degrees, which was normal for the State. The amount of rainfall varied from 0.09 inches to 3.32 inches during the week. The statewide average for precipitation was 1.36 inches. There were 5.2 days available for fieldwork for the week ending August 5.Corn and soybean conditions remained stable throughout the week, with the percentage rated good to excellent higher than last year and the five-year average for both crops. The above average rainfall and warm temperatures kept corn and soybean progress slightly ahead of schedule. While the early week rains sustained pastures, the rest of the week remained relatively dry giving farmers a nice window for cutting hay. Livestock are reported to be in good condition overall, despite some high temperatures. Other activities for the week included hauling grain, finishing up paperwork with FSA, and spraying herbicides and fungicides.

Two foreign journalists placed on government blacklist

first_img Covid-19 emergency laws spell disaster for press freedom Update: On 4 March, the weekly Far Eastern Economic Review finally apologized for publishing on 10 January 2002 an article considered offensive by Thai authorities, who reacted by revoking the visas of two journalists based in Bangkok. The magazine’s lawyer presented a letter of apology, signed by Michael Vatikiotis, editor in chief, to the president of the National Assembly, Uthai Pimchaichon. According to the Immigration Police spokesperson, the committee examining the appeal to the expulsion order against the journalists is to meet on 4 March and will make a decision “that will take this letter of apology into account”. On 1 March, a Thai police official said that his offices were examining the content of the latest issue of the British magazine The Economist which included a special report on Thailand, and which focused on the monarchy. This magazine, normally on sale at newsagents on Friday, had not yet been distributed. Red alert for green journalism – 10 environmental reporters killed in five years According to information obtained by RSF, on 21 February 2002, Lieutenant General Hemaraj Thareethai, who is the Ministry of Immigration’s police chief, confimed the existence of a blacklist, comprised of forty-six foreigners who are considered “undesirables” in Thailand and consequently risk expulsion. The list is to be submitted to the interior minister for his approval. The names of American journalist Crispin and British journalist Tasker, both of whom work for the “Far Eastern Economic Review”, are included on the blacklist. Also included are the names of the magazine’s publication director and an editor-in-chief who works at the magazine’s Hong Kong headquarters. Thirteen members of the Chinese spiritual movement Falungong are also included on the blacklist. News In a letter to Interior Minister Purachai Piumsombun, RSF protested the government’s placement of Shawn W. Crispin and Rodney Tasker, Bangkok bureau chief and journalist from the financial magazine Far Eastern Economic Review, respectively, on a blacklist of foreigners who are barred from entering Thailand. “We condemn this measure, which is prejudicial to press freedom and unworthy of a democracy,” stated Robert Ménard, the organisation’s secretary-general. RSF asked the minister to see to it that both the journalists’ names, as well as those of two other employees from the magazine, are removed from the Ministry of Immigration’s blacklist of forty-six foreigners.

On 7 January, General Tritot Ronnarittivichai, who oversees the distribution of publications, issued an order banning the 10 January issue of the “Far Eastern Economic Review”. He also ordered the seizure of all copies of the issue. According to the general, the issue in question included an article that was likely to disturb public order and “affect public morality”. As such, it violated the Publishing Act of 1941. On 5 January, the Thai airline Thai International PLC barred the magazine’s distribution on all its flights. On 7 January, Thai Prime Minister Thaksin Shinawatra announced that lawyers would study the magazine’s articles in order to determine whether “defamation” charges should be filed against it. The prime minister was especially disturbed by an article titled “Listless Days”, which reported on relations between both heads of the Thai executive branch. The prime minister expressed the belief that foreign publications wereattacking the Thai government because of his refusal to privatise state companies in order to sell them at a reduced price on the international market. In the incriminating article, the “Far Eastern Economic Review” discussed relations between the king and the prime minister. This followed a December speech by the king in which he severely criticised Thaksin.On 10 January, the radio programme “Lok Yam Chao” (World Morning), a daily political talk-show, was banned after its host read passages from a controversial “Far Eastern Economic Review” article. The programme has been broadcast on the FM dial for twenty years. It is broadcast on a network owned by the Ministry of Public Relations. According to the talk-show’s host, Somkiat, the programme was reportedly banned by government order. Organisation June 12, 2020 Find out morelast_img read more

Over 1,700 Unmaintained, Empty Local Swimming Pools Concern Vector Control Agency

first_img Make a comment Community News As of June 1st, 2015 the San Gabriel Valley Mosquito and Vector Control District (SGVMVCD) is monitoring over 1,700 swimming pools that are either empty or unmaintained in the 241 square miles that make up their District. This daunting number directly impacts public health.An unmaintained swimming pool is a safety hazard and a perfect environment for producing mosquitoes. In one month one average sized unmaintained swimming pool could produce over 3 million adult mosquitoes, enough to significantly impair a community’s health.“Empty pools are our main concern because they quickly collect water and we hardly find them completely dry,” says Mel Cook, the District’s operations manager. “Even with the right equipment, keeping an empty pool completely dry is labor intensive and time consuming; less than an inch of water can start producing mosquitoes in a matter of days,” he continued.The District has seen an increase in unmaintained swimming pools and they suspect one reason may be a well-intentioned effort to conserve water. “We know our state is in the middle of a severe drought and everyone is focused on saving water. We would like people to know that leaving a pool partially filled will create conditions that produce mosquitoes,” says Jason Farned, public information officer of the SGVMVCD. Farned explains that while the District supports water conservation and does not want to discourage anyone’s efforts to save water, he reminds residents to consider public health as they do so. “It is critical that we all make sure that our rain barrels, fish ponds, and swimming pools do not produce mosquitoes,” he says.Keeping an empty pool dry is not the answer. “We currently know of over 1,700 pools which need regular inspections, says district manager Kenn Fujioka. ” Residents who have swimming pools are responsible by law for ensuring they function properly. The District can no longer routinely inspect the growing number of empty pools. We are asking for the public’s cooperation so we do not have to issue abatement notices.” California’s Health and Safety Code gives vector control agencies the authority to control vectors within their jurisdiction including imposing fines of up to $1,000 per day for non-compliance. “We are responsible for getting negligent property owners to remove sources of mosquitoes so the health of neighborhoods is protected.” Fujioka stated.West Nile virus is transmitted by mosquitoes and continuously threatens public health in California. In 2014 there were more than 798 human cases and 31 deaths statewide. The unusually warm winter and continuing drought have vector control agencies concerned that another active year may occur, since these conditions tend to produce more mosquitoes near people. Since there is currently no vaccine or cure for the disease, preventive measures are the most effective way to reduce infections with West Nile virus.All property owners must keep their swimming pools functioning properly. “Lawmakers must develop regulations that both conserve water and keep pools operating so public health is not compromised. Vector control agencies do not have resources to inspect them all,” says Fujioka. The SGVMVCD also encourages residents of San Gabriel Valley to actively eliminate sources that produce mosquitoes and protect themselves from bites. Here are some tips they provide:* Examine property regularly to identify and DUMP or DRAIN standing water* Call and REPORT excessive mosquito activity, especially mosquitoes biting during the day* Call and REPORT green pools and standing water around neighborhood* Wear insect REPELLENT and LONG SLEEVES to prevent bites* Ensure screens have no holes and are tightly closed on windows and doorsReport mosquitoes and/or request service by calling San Gabriel Valley Mosquito and Vector Control District at (626) 814-9466 or by visiting www.SGVMosquito.org.

Following the salmon trail from Limerick to Western Greenland

Housing 37 Compulsory Purchase Orders issued as council takes action on derelict sites The AK Ilen under sail.Photo: Dermot LynchTHE last of Ireland’s timber-built ocean-going sailing ships set sail from Limerick Docks this week to ride the waves of the North Atlantic once again.The nation’s sole surviving ocean-going wooden sailing ship, the ‘Ilen’, which was re-built through a community educational programme in Roxboro, will now follow the migratory journey of salmon in the Shannon River to West Greenland.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up Designed by Limerick man Conor O’Brien and built in Baltimore in 1926, the ‘Auxiliary Ketch Ilen’ was first delivered by Munster men to the Falkland Islands where she served valiantly for 70 years.The Ilen is today setting off for its longest voyage in decades. It is the culmination of a lot of hard work by so many in our community who helped us realise our vision of reimagining this impressive ship.After being returned home to Limerick and given a new breath of life with powerful ribs of grown Irish oak, and long planks of European Larch, the 56-foot vessel was readying herself this Monday to take to the high seas for this historic 1,200 nautical mile voyage.Skipper for the nine-week educational-expedition is Polar yachtsman Paddy Barry. The crew will also include Limerick graphic artist and director of the Ilen Project, Gary McMahon, who spearheaded the community project to rebuild the trading ketch in Limerick and West Cork.“The Ilen is today setting off for its longest voyage in decades. It is the culmination of a lot of hard work by so many in our community who helped us realise our vision of reimagining this impressive ship. Throughout this journey, participants in the project have shared and learnt skills through the build which will remain with them for a lifetime. It is a symbol of what can be achieved when people work together and it is fitting therefore that our ‘Salmon Wake’ journey is highlighting the decline in salmon populations,” Mr McMahon commented.Atlantic salmon populations are widely distributed throughout Irish freshwaters with over 140 such systems designated as salmon rivers. While in the 1970s, the number of Atlantic Salmon returning to Irish waters peaked at 1,800,000, the numbers returning have decreased by 70 per cent in recent decades.‘Salmon Wake’ is the Ilen Project’s Community and Schools Education Programme which is highlighting the decline of salmon during International Year of the Salmon.The rebuilding of the Ilen and her preparations for sea were completed in June and the crew from all parts of Ireland are looking forward to her longest ocean voyage since 1926.The voyage follows a creative programme which saw building workshops and community days take place at multiple locations across the city with local schools, artists, craft makers and institutions all playing a role in bringing this majestic ship back to sea. Young people from Limerick and West Greenland are participating in this project and discovering what both communities share as North Atlantic maritime island peoples.“We know that for every 100 salmon that leave Ireland to go out to sea, 95 don’t make it back due to a range of challenges which they face at sea. The Ilen Project’s ‘Salmon Wake’ programme is a timely tribute to this iconic species during International Year of the Salmon and it is hoped that it will help create awareness around their decline in Ireland and across the northern hemisphere.” Dr Ciaran Byrne, CEO of Inland Fisheries Ireland (IFI) explained.Kerry musician Breanndán Ó Beaglaoich, Mike Grimes, Mantas Seskanskis, James Madigan, Ronan Ó Caoimh, Mick Ruane, Seamus O’Byrne, and Justin McDonagh are also on board the Ilen, which is destined for Nuuk, Greenland’s capital city.The Captain of the Ilen will provide updates on the ship’s progress as it follows the route of salmon migration to West Greenland as a guest blogger on IFI’s blog www.fishinginireland.info.
