A HOME MADE FOR 2 is located within a prominent residential neighbourhood in the northern part of Kuala Lumpur.  The client has certain requirements in term of design and space and priority was placed on revamping the Interior spaces while maintaining most of the exterior facade features. We have work closely with the client who was also a designer for the house.Save this picture!Floor PlansSpatial adaptability became the design parameters for the house layout. The design of the house is tailor-made for two users with one master bedroom and one multipurpose guest room. The guest room is designed to become a flexible communal space that also functions as a multi-purpose TV hall or study room.Save this picture!© Alvin Tan PhotographyThe ground floor layout embodies the concept of fluid space. From the front, all the way to the back of the house, the internal spaces were arranged to form a continuous flow of space for maximum cross ventilation. When viewed from the car porch entrance gate, the internal space of the house is partially obscured due to the unique vertical wave pattern metal screen design. Upon entering the house, visitors will be greeted by the courtyard garden located next to the living room.Save this picture!Sections and ElevationsNatural light is introduced to the double-volume central space by removing the first floor existing toilet slab. Randomly placed roof tile skylights puncture through the roof ceiling, to animate light and shadow play onto the interior planes, invoking the poetic sense of the space.Save this picture!© Alvin Tan PhotographyThis space acts as a focal point for the entire house, where all the rooms are pivoted and choreographed; bringing light and ventilation to the parts of the house that might otherwise be dark, gloomy and airless. The spacious and well-lit interior create an unexpected contrast from the house’s modest external impression.Save this picture!Modifications DiagramFor the rear façade treatment, we constructed new double-storeys brick masonry wall using vertically-laid stretcher bond to form an open courtyard with landscape that is open to the sky. The exposed brick wall consists of a clay and sand bricks mixture with small vertical slots for ventilation purposes. Save this picture!© Alvin Tan PhotographyThe open concept bathroom at first floor with a full-height glass window, embrace the openness and intimacy while maintaining privacy. The amount of light penetrating the bathroom helps to reduce humidity, keeping the airiness and lightness of the space.On the first floor, we bridge the gap between the front and back portion of the house using lightweight steel bridge. The perforated floor allows maximum daylight to permeate through, creating dappled light and casting shadows to the lower floor. The interior spaces of the house embody minimalist architectural design with simple yet elegant geometric forms. Save this picture!© Alvin Tan PhotographyThe obsession of black and white colour palette (combination of dark and light hues) give pleasing contrast to the internal space, elements and textures but yet allows for a sense of intimacy and comfort.

Chicago People’s Assembly says ‘Food is a right!’

first_imgWW photo: Patricia LinaresWorking people from the Midwest and beyond participated in a “Food Is a Right” People’s Assembly on Aug. 16 at Dominican University in Chicago. The assembly was a central feature of the 2014 Critical Dietetics Conference that included participants from Australia, Canada, London, Trinidad and the United States.The People’s Assembly centered around four demands: Stop all cuts to government food stamps and food programs; healthy food affordable to all — end food deserts; economic justice for food, agricultural and all workers — including the right to unionize; and hold the food industry and agribusiness accountable for environmental and health impacts in the U.S. and around the world.“The first of the eight millennium development goals set by the United Nations Millennium Declaration in 2000 to be achieved by 2015 is to ‘eradicate extreme hunger and poverty,’ including reducing the proportion of people who experience hunger by 50 percent. Instead, what has occurred is an increase in malnutrition both in the U.S. and abroad, due to both undernutrition and overnutrition. The result is increasing nutrition related diseases, such as diabetes and hypertension, due to poor food quality and disparity in food access. Half of the victims of food inequality are children,” said Dr. Jill White, professor of dietetics at Dominican and an organizer of the assembly.White added, “We are at this assembly to empower those interested in ending hunger and fighting for food justice, workers’ rights and saving the environment to come together to plan united actions.”Students from Dominican played a central role in organizing the assembly, as did activist academics and many community members. Attendees included members of the Chicago Food Depository, the Illinois Hunger Coalition, the Illinois Public Health Association and the Chicago Hispanic Health Coalition.Delegations came from the Southside, Humboldt Park and Little Village neighborhoods. Centro Sin Fronteras, led by Emma Lozano, brought buses of Black and Brown youth. The Moratorium Now! Coalition in Detroit, Rockford Fight Imperialism, Stand Together (FIST) and the Wisconsin Bail Out the People Movement all sent delegations.Speakers addressed numerous issues related to the four central demands and all denounced the billions in food stamp cuts and U.S. violations of United Nations goals and charters. Strong support for the low-wage worker demand of “$15 and a union” was expressed throughout the assembly.A major assembly focus was the myriad ways that food is related to the migrant crisis caused by banks and mostly U.S.-based agribusiness corporations.Teresa Gutierrez of the May 1st Coalition for Worker and Immigrant Rights in New York brought solidarity greetings from her organization. She analyzed how capitalism is responsible for millions of migrants and refugees being forced out of their homelands into the U.S. just to feed the children they left behind. Once here, they are superexploited as workers by agribusiness and other industries. Gutierrez described the May 1st Coalition plans to organize a caravan to south Texas to support migrant refugees.Mexican migrant Elvira Arellano was once deported from the U.S. after taking sanctuary for 12 months in 2007-2008 at the Adalberto United Methodist Church in Chicago. Now a leader of La Familia Latina Unida — Sin Fronteras (Latina Family United — Without Borders), Arellano expressed the agony of millions of migrants when she said, “We had to leave our children in order to feed them.”Participants at the assembly are moving forward to fight for their four main demands.

Potential for Corn Ear Molds This Year Due to Weather Extremes

first_img Facebook Twitter Potential for Corn Ear Molds This Year Due to Weather Extremes SHARE Facebook Twitter Home News Feed Potential for Corn Ear Molds This Year Due to Weather Extremes By Gary Truitt – Sep 24, 2013 SHARE A growing season characterized by weather extremes, leading to crop stress during flowering and delayed maturity, has created favorable conditions for classic corn ear molds. DuPont Pioneer experts warn that the environment will become increasingly ideal for ear molds if the weather brings cooler temperatures and periodic rains as we head into harvest. In addition, drought stress and insect injury to the crop provide an avenue for fungi to enter, causing ear molds to establish and spread.“The carryover of ear mold inoculum from last year’s drought environment is likely minimal; however, growers with a history of molds should carefully scout their fields,” says Bill Dolezal, DuPont Pioneer plant pathology research fellow. “While not significant, we have heard reports of ear molds in Indiana and Illinois, as well as Missouri and Tennessee, this year. Ear molds reduce yield potential, grain quality and feed value.”While scouting, it is important to identify molds and determine if mycotoxins are present. If mold presence is greater than 10,000 cfu/gram and is of the Aspergillus, Fusarium, Gibberella or Penicillium strains, a mycotoxin screening should be completed. Many crop insurance policies require that you  contact your crop insurance agent as samples must be pulled from the field by a loss adjuster prior to the grain being placed in storage. The representative sample must be sent to university plant pathology labs for proper mycotoxin screening and identification.If 10 percent or more of the ears in the field have a significant amount of mold present on greater than 25 percent of the ear, harvest as soon as possible. The best way to prevent further growth and toxin development is to harvest at or above 20 percent moisture and then dry the corn to 15 percent moisture or less.When harvesting, be sure to adjust your combine to minimize kernel damage and remove the lightest kernels. Broken kernels often have a higher likelihood of toxin development.Proper grain drying and storage are critical to minimize further proliferation of existing molds. Grain should be dried to less than 15 percent moisture and cooled below 50 degrees as quickly as possible following harvest. Prior to storage, clean grain to remove any infected kernels, cobs and fines.If possible, store infected grain separately to avoid putting the entire bin at risk for contamination. Grain should be stored in cool temperatures, preferably around 30 degrees. To maintain condition, regularly monitor and check grain in storage for temperature, moisture and insects. After handling infected grain, thoroughly clean drying bins and equipment to avoid further contamination.Looking ahead to next year, Pioneer experts provide several tips to manage and decrease the likelihood of corn ear molds. Consider planting regionally adapted hybrids, such as those in the Optimum® AcreMax® product line-up; which offers many hybrid choices with strong traits for above-ground insect protection to help reduce damaged kernels and fungal-spore entry points. Implementing a balanced fertility program, designed for optimum yields, is also beneficial. Crop rotation and residue management can provide substantial disease control as well.For additional management tips, contact your local DuPont Pioneer agronomist or Pioneer sales professional, or visit pioneer.com.

Harvest Windows Remain Open Despite Snow and Brutal Cold Across Indiana

first_img By Eric Pfeiffer – Nov 7, 2019 Harvest Windows Remain Open Despite Snow and Brutal Cold Across Indiana Facebook Twitter SHARE Harvest Windows Remain Open Despite Snow and Brutal Cold Across IndianaHAT Chief Meteorologist Ryan Martin says harvest opportunities still exist over the next ten days to two weeks. His harvest weather forecast is presented by First Farmers Bank & Trust, proud to support Indiana farmers, Kokomo Grain, and Seed Genetics Direct: a family-owned company meeting the corn, wheat, soybean, alfalfa, and herbicide needs of Corn Belt farmers. Value. Knowledge. Performance. It’s in their genetics.Martin says that forecast looks to be dry, for the most part, but significant cold air is coming through.“Most will tell you that cold air alone is not a problem, but we are going to be seeing our drying potential slowed quite a bit. A large part of the state is reporting wet corn coming in. We even had some places kind of shutting down for wet corn deliveries to try and let the dryers catch up.”Martin sees no precipitation this weekend; however, “On Monday, I do see a little front coming through bringing some snow. It will likely be a coating to a couple of inches over most of the state. That’s going to be cold enough that we should see all snow, but the liquid equivalency of that is still only a tenth or two maximum, so not a lot of moisture.”After that, Martin says temperatures will be brutally cold Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday next week, “But we start to moderate a little bit next Friday and Saturday. We actually see clouds increase Sunday the 17th, but our next chance of moisture may not develop until overnight Sunday night into Monday the 18th. This does look like it’s going to bring rain. We’re talking .3” or less from I-70 north…if you’re in the south, you’ll probably be able last right on through the 19th before your next round of rain.”Martin’s extended forecast does call for additional rain around Wednesday, November 20.

I am demiting office”, J Mishra observed.Senior Advocate Rajeev Dhavan, appearing for Bhushan, submitted that he has raised some questions of law and that the matter ought to be referred to Constitution Bench. Dhavan also urged the bench to hear Attorney General as issues of constitutional importance are involved.”These questions must be resolved for “once and for all”. The Court’s free speech jurisprudence has expanded and its impact on contempt law must be considered”, Dhavan submitted(The questions framed by Bhushan may be read here).However, Justice Mishra observed that there was paucity of time, given the fact that he was retiring on September 3.Justice Mishra therefore said that it was appropriate that the matter was considered by another bench on September 10.The question whether notice should be issued to the Attorney General is also left to the other bench, Justice Mishra said.On August 17, a bench of Justices Arun Mishra, BR Gavai & Krishna Murari stated that the following questions, having larger ramifications, arose in the case: (i) In case a public statement as to corruption by a particular Judge(s) is permissible, under what circumstances and on what basis, it can be made, and safeguards, if any, to be observed in that regard ?(ii) What procedure is to be adopted to make complaint in such cases when the allegation is about the conduct of a sitting Judge ?(iii) Whether against retired Judge(s), any allegation as to corruption can be made publicly, thereby shaking the confidence of general public in the judiciary; and whether the same would be punishable under the Contempt of Courts Act?On August 10, the Court had decided to hold a detailed hearing on whether to accept the explanation tendered by Advocate Prashant Bhushan in the contempt case and whether corruption allegations against judges, by themselves, would constitute contempt.The subject matter of the case is an interview given by Bhushan to Shoma Chaudhury of Tehelka magazine in 2009, where he allegedly said that for his allegations, half of the last 16 Chief Justices were corrupt. As per the complaint, Bhushan also said in the interview that he had no proof for the allegations.On August 4, a bench comprising Justices Arun Mishra, B R Gavai and Krishna Murari had reserved orders on whether to accept his explanation and said that it will proceed to hear the case in detail if his explanation was not found acceptable.”In case we do not accept the explanation/apology, we will hear the matter. We reserve the order”, the bench noted in the order.As per the press release issued by Prashant Bhushan’s office, he refused to tender an apology but agreed to issue the following explanation.”In my interview to Tehelka in 2009 I have used the word corruption in a wide sense meaning lack of propriety. I did not mean only financial corruption or deriving any pecuniary advantage. If what I have said caused hurt to any of them or to their families in any way, I regret the same. I unreservedly state that I support the institution of the judiciary and especially the Supreme Court of which I am a part, and had no intention to lower the prestige of the judiciary in which I have complete faith. I regret if my interview was misunderstood as doing so, that is, lower the reputation of the judiciary, especially the Supreme Court, which could never have been my intention at all.”The suo motu case was taken on the basis of a complaint made by Senior Advocate Harish Salve.The contempt proceedings pertain to allegations made by Salve towards Bhushan where Bhushan allegedly said that half of the last 16 Chief Justices were corrupt. As per the complaint, Bhushan also said in the interview that he had no proof for the allegations.On November 6, 2009, the complaint was placed before a bench comprising the then Chief Justice K G Balakrishnan and Justice S H Kapadia, which directed that the matter be listed before a 3-judge bench in which Justice Kapadia was not a member.On January 19, 2010, a bench comprising Justices Altamas Kabir, Cyriac Joseph and H L Dattu issued notices to Bhushan and Tarun Tejpal, the Editor-in-Chief of Tehelka magazineWith inputs from Akshita Saxena Subscribe to LiveLaw, enjoy Ad free version and other unlimited features, just INR 599 Click here to Subscribe.

Coronavirus updates: US shatters previous record of new cases

first_imgSamara Heisz/iStockBy MORGAN WINSOR, JON HAWORTH and EMILY SHAPIRO, ABC News(NEW YORK) — A pandemic of the novel coronavirus has now killed more than 544,000 people worldwide.Over 11.8 million people across the globe have been diagnosed with COVID-19, the disease caused by the new respiratory virus, according to data compiled by the Center for Systems Science and Engineering at Johns Hopkins University. The actual numbers are believed to be much higher due to testing shortages, many unreported cases and suspicions that some governments are hiding the scope of their nations’ outbreaks.Since the first cases were detected in China in December, the United States has become the worst-affected country, with more than 2.9 million diagnosed cases and at least 131,521 deaths.Here is how the news is developing Wednesday. All times Eastern: 11 a.m.: Florida has 41 hospitals with no available bedsAs coronavirus cases surge in Florida, the state had 41 hospitals with no available beds as of Wednesday morning, according to the state’s Agency for Healthcare Administration.Only 15.36% of Florida’s adult ICU beds remain available, the agency said.This comes as Florida reports 9,989 more cases since Tuesday, bringing the state to a total of 223,793 diagnosed cases of the coronavirus.In Miami-Dade County, which includes the city of Miami, the positivity rate has jumped to 21.9%.Osceola County is reporting a positivity rate of 19.5%, while in Hillsborough County, which includes Tampa, the positivity rate stands at 16.4%.Hillsborough County students and staff will be required to wear face masks when they return to school, the superintendent announced Tuesday evening.10:25 a.m.: NYC schools to mix in-person, remote learningWhen New York City restarts school for its 1.1 million public school students, classes will be a mix of in-person and remote learning, Mayor Bill de Blasio said Wednesday.Students will learn five days a week and most children will be in school two or three days each week, he said.Schools will be deep-cleaned each night and face coverings will be required, said Richard Carranza, chancellor of the city’s Department of Education.Fewer students will be in each class and teachers can use large spaces, like gyms and cafeterias, to teach, Carranza said.Families can also choose remote learning full-time for their children, the mayor added.“We have to look at this as a challenge, but one that we can also find good in,” de Blasio said.Of those tested for the coronavirus in New York City, 1% are now testing positive, the mayor said Wednesday.9:05 a.m.: Coronavirus crisis expanding in South and SouthwestThe coronavirus crisis is expanding in the South and the Southeast, according to an internal FEMA memo obtained by ABC News. Arizona reported 354 new cases per 100,000 population in the past week, compared to a national average of 100 per 100,000. In California, the highest number of new cases in last three weeks were in Los Angeles, Riverside and Orange counties, representing 51.8% of new cases in the state. Southern California and the Central Valley show high community transmission and the Bay Area is also seeing rising cases. Florida is reporting 261 new cases per 100,000 population in the past week. The highest number of new cases in last three weeks were in Miami-Dade, Hillsborough and Broward Counties. But those counties represented only 37.9% of new cases in the state; increases are occurring broadly across multiple counties, including Orange. In South Carolina, positivity rates are increasing in coastal counties and urban areas. The highest number of new cases over the last three weeks were in Charleston, Horry and Greenville Counties, representing 41.1% of new cases in the state.

While some of those people may have been together at other events, officials said, the only common link they all share is the graduation.Officials said anyone who attended the ceremony “needs to take additional precautions when interacting with individuals from our vulnerable population,” and to get tested if they or someone in their home develops symptoms.Board members of the Union County Public Schools had voted in late May to hold in-person graduation ceremonies while practicing social distancing, despite an order from North Carolina Gov. Roy Cooper that prohibits them. The Union County Sheriff’s Office said they wouldn’t interfere with the plans to carry out traditional graduations.“As Union County Public Schools held graduations, the district provided clear health and safety guidance for graduates and their guests,” Union County Public Schools told WSOC in a statement Tuesday. “Ceremonies included social distancing protocols, and staff encouraged all attendees to wear face coverings. In addition, hand sanitizer or hand washing stations were available at each stadium.”3:30 a.m.: US sets another record with over 60,000 new cases in a dayMore than 60,000 new cases of COVID-19 were identified in the United States on Tuesday, according to a count kept by Johns Hopkins University.It’s the first time the United States has reached or crossed the 60,000 threshold of newly diagnosed cases in a 24-hour reporting period.Tuesday’s caseload shattered the country’s previous record set on July 2, when more than 54,000 new cases were identified.The national total currently stands at 2,996,098 diagnosed cases with at least 131,480 deaths, according to Johns Hopkins.
