LaurenceCRL-U.S. Aluminum Unit-Glaze SystemText description provided by the architects. The CRA House is located within a residential country club in Avándaro, Estado de México. The country club, like many others in Mexico, establishes general design criteria and suggests, with emphasis, the use of specific forms and materials. Given the mountain character of the site, the regulation infers the need to preserve the rustic character of the place through architecture. In most cases, regulatory constraints are real challenges that are solved through analysis and design. In this case, the design of the house proves a stylistic hybridization strategy, with the double purpose of giving continuity to the character of the whole, while at the same time articulating, in an alternative way, the different spaces and the program of the house.Save this picture!Instead of being perpendicular to the access, the whole house rotates, looking to obtain the best orientations and the best and widest views towards the golf field. By rotating the limits and the perimeter walls of the house, they establish alternative relations towards the exterior; Instead of an impassable fence, diagonal landscaped spaces are opened, which correct the conventional edge relationship between the land and the house. The same turn, allows articulating the closed and semi-enclosed spaces, always in relation to the open space (both the garden and the golf course)Save this picture!Save this picture!Save this picture!© Rafael GamoOn the upper floor, rooms are arranged around a central space for distribution and collection of solar energy (heat) and, converted into observation platforms, have visual shots towards the different views of the forest. The four spaces contained under the roof and wooden structure, allow accommodating an entire family in each of the rooms, taking advantage of the generous heights, with mezzanines.Save this picture!© Rafael GamoSave this picture!Save this picture!© Rafael Gamo At all times the immediate, mediate and distant landscape were respected; In fact, the house is a homage to the existing landscape and touches the destined plot in the least invasive way possible. The house sets a precedent and an alternative way of complying with regulations, protecting the architectural image of the complex and the natural environment, establishing an intelligent material dialogue with tradition and contemporary times. The construction system values local artisans, craftsmen and methods while creating spaces of international scope. Through observation and thinking, constructions can be achieved that offer different spatial, structural and formal results, through the rational use of material and human resources “as usual”, also achieving a comprehensive spatial, formal and energy performance.Save this picture!Save this picture!© Rafael GamoProject gallerySee allShow lessJCC Lab / Espaço OficinaSelected ProjectsArchitects, not Architecture: Dan Stubbergaard from COBEArchitecture News Share Lead Architects: Projects Houses CopyAbout this officeEstudio MMXOfficeFollow#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesValle De BravoStaircaseOn FacebookMexicoPublished on May 27, 2020Cite: “CRA House / Estudio MMX” [Casa CRA / Estudio MMX] 27 May 2020.

Crisis will thank participating companies by publicising their support in two double-page adverts in worldwide editions of the Financial Times and on the FT.com website, “reaching a global audience of over 1.5 million”.Simon Haslam, Chief Administrative Officer, Fidelity International, said: “Christmas Card Challenge provides an excellent mechanism for demonstrating our commitment to good corporate citizenship to our customers whilst still conveying our seasonal good wishes through the e-card. It also saves time, is environmentally friendly but most importantly it supports homeless people by developing their skills and employment prospects through the Crisis Open Christmas Project.” Swap Christmas cards for virtual choir, Crisis urges companies 36 total views, 1 views today AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis National homelessness charity Crisis is urging companies to swap the traditional corporate Christmas card for a tailor-made video e-card of homeless choristers.All of the parcipating singers are homeless people who will be spending the festive period at Crisis Open Christmas. Companies can request a choir of three (for a donation of £3,000) to sing ‘Jingle Bells’, a chamber choir of five (for £15,000) to perform ‘We wish you a merry Christmas’, or a full choir of about fifteen (for £25,000) to perform ‘The Twelve days of Christmas’.The charity is hoping to raise £1 million from its Christmas Card Challenge. Last year 114 companies donated their Christmas card budget to Crisis “preventing over 150,000 Christmas cards ending up in the bin, saving over 50 trees and helping to raise over £800,000”, according to the charity.

DuPont Advances Commercialization of Cellulosic Ethanol with Iowa Biorefinery For many corn growers, residue management is a major challenge when maximizing their potential grain yield. Leftover corn stover interferes with planting, delays stand establishment, monopolizes nitrogen in the soil and often harbors damaging insect, pests and pathogens. Some stover from the corn crop is left on the field to protect the soil from erosion. “Many of us who have participated in the stover harvest program with DuPont are already seeing benefits of this alternative residue management strategy including positive effects on grain yields the following year on our fields,” said Jim Hill, a corn grower whose stover will be used to supply DuPont’s biorefinery. “We’re excited to work with DuPont to supply stover to this new biorefinery, partner to discover new markets for our products and co-products and develop new crop production techniques based on the opportunity to manage residues thru partial stover removal.”DuPont will further adapt its cellulosic ethanol technology to additional feedstocks. It is already processing switchgrass in the testing facility it owns jointly with the University of Tennessee near Knoxville, Tenn. The use of advanced biofuels can result in fewer greenhouse gas emissions. An International Organization for Standardization (ISO) compliant, peer reviewed life cycle assessment of the DuPont biorefinery and supply chain indicates a potential greater than 100 percent reduction in greenhouse gas emissions compared to gasoline. This significant greenhouse gas reduction is enabled by use of cellulosic co-products as a source of renewable energy. The DuPont biorefinery co-product is a material that can displace coal in facilities currently burning this fossil fuel.Regional businesses and academic institutions have already indicated interest in exploring the potential use of the renewable co-products to replace portions of their coal fired operations.“We are excited to explore the various synergies between Lincolnway and DuPont that bring value to both companies. One area is the possibility of using DuPont’s cellulosic ethanol co-product to replace our coal usage,” said Lincolnway Energy Chairman Jeff Taylor. “We strive to continually improve our operations and environmental impact. Replacing our fossil fuels with this renewable cellulosic ethanol co-product to generate heat and power makes great sense. It is generated right next door, would reduce our coal usage and the transportation costs of shipping coal cars almost a thousand miles.” Collins was joined by Iowa Governor Terry Branstad to celebrate the official beginning of construction on the facility at a ceremony held at the construction site adjacent to grain ethanol facility Lincolnway Energy. “During my previous terms as governor, we were excited to bring ethanol production to the state. After many hard years of work by Iowa growers and technology companies like DuPont, Iowa now leads the country in renewable fuel production,” said Governor Branstad. This site in Nevada is the next critical step in our cellulosic ethanol journey. We look forward to bringing these advanced technologies online, creating local jobs and helping to deliver clean, sustainable energy.” Agricultural Impact Facebook Twitter To supply the corn stover for its plant, DuPont will contract with more than 500 local farmers to gather, store and deliver over 375,000 dry tons of stover per year into the Nevada facility. In addition to the estimated 60 full-time plant operations jobs, there will be over 150 individuals involved in the collection, stacking, transportation and storage of the stover feedstock seasonally during each harvest. The stover will be collected from an approximate 30 mile radius around the new facility and harvested off of 190,000 acres. Facebook Twitter SHARE SHARE Environmental Impact Home Energy DuPont Advances Commercialization of Cellulosic Ethanol with Iowa Biorefinery DuPont came one step closer to commercializing advanced biofuels by breaking ground on its cellulosic ethanol facility in Nevada, Iowa. Expectd to be completed in mid-2014, this more than $200 million facility will be among the first and largest commercial-scale cellulosic biorefinerie in the world. This new facility is expected to generate 30 million gallons annually of cellulosic biofuel produced from corn stover residues, a non-food feedstock that consists of corn stalks and leaves. This is more capacity than original estimates called for as data derived from our piloting facility in Tennessee has allowed DuPont to further optimize our process and technology. This first commercial facility will require a capital investment of about $7 per gallon of annual capacity. “Nearly a decade ago, DuPont set out to develop innovative technology that would result in low capital and low-cost cellulosic ethanol production. We recognized that science-powered innovation was the catalyst to make cellulosic ethanol a commercial reality and to help reduce global dependence on fossil fuels,” said James C. Collins, president, DuPont Industrial Biosciences. “By leveraging DuPont Pioneer corn production expertise and designing an integrated technology platform, we’ve built an affordable and sustainable entry point into this new industry. We’re committed to continued productivity gains to drive costs down even further for the coming generations of plants, ones based on corn stover as well as other feedstocks,” Collins continued. “And we didn’t get to this point alone. We’ve built an incredible partnership with the state of Iowa, Iowa State University, entrepreneurial growers and a whole host of partners around the country who share our vision of making renewable fuels a commercial reality.” By Gary Truitt – Dec 3, 2012 Source: Dupont Previous articleSeed Consultants Winter Agronomy Meetings AnnouncedNext articleProperty Tax Fix For Farmland Looks Certain Gary Truitt

On the upper end of things, home prices are booming and not likely to come down soon. Unfortunately, that trend, combined with nationwide housing inventory shortages and increasing rent prices, has made things difficult for lower-income consumers. But what about the housing requirements of those who fall between those two extremes? A new California bill is designed to address the needs of the “missing middle.”California is home to some of the priciest markets in the country, so living in the state as a middle- or lower-income worker can often mean commuting a long way because home prices near your job are unaffordable. First introduced in February 2018 by Assemblyman David Chiu (D-San Francisco) and Assemblyman Ash Kalra (D-San Jose), Assembly Bill 3152 would grant property tax exemptions to nonprofit housing developers who rent homes in high-cost areas to middle-income renters at a discount. The property tax discount is similar to one that already applies to lower-income rental housing.Assemblyman Chiu told the Santa Cruz Sentinel, “During the housing crisis, middle-income Californians are in a very tough spot. They don’t qualify for low-income affordable housing, but also can’t afford market rents.”According to the June 2016 California Apartment List Rent Report, California rental prices have been trending well above the national average since around May 2015. Nor is it just a California problem. A November 2017 Apartment List study reported that nearly half of U.S. renters are “cost burdened,” spending 30 percent or more of their income on rent. When you factor in the massive student debt many Americans are carrying, the path to homeownership becomes elusive. That begs the question—if there simply isn’t enough rental stock to accommodate demand, where does that leave the middle-income consumer who isn’t ready to purchase a home, or simply doesn’t desire to?“It’s encouraging to see the California legislature focusing on tax credits intended to help the middle-income renter and not just homeowners,” Beth O’Brien, CEO of CoreVest Finance, told DS News. “It’s a clear recognition on how important this segment of the housing stock is to the workforce. Over time I’d like to see programs like this geared towards a broader group of market participants so that it can have a greater impact on housing investment, but this is a good start.”Will bills such as California’s Assembly Bill 3152 help ease the pain? Only time will tell.

The single-Judge Bench of Justice Prathiba M Singh has granted time to the Government to apprise the court with the steps taken by it to implement the scheme. The matter has been posted for hearing on June 18. In February last year, Delhi CM Arvind Kejriwal had announced a budgetary provision of annual Rs 50-crore allowance for various welfare schemes for lawyers in Delhi-NCR. Subsequently in November, 2019, the Delhi government announced that a Committee comprising 13 lawyers will be set up to recommend the utilization of Rs. 50-crore Advocates Welfare Fund. The plea, filed through Advocates Amit Prakash Shahi & Yugansh Mittal states that it was only after several representations, the Delhi Government (Respondent No. 1) on March 20, 2020 issued an advertisement calling the Advocates enrolled with Bar Council of Delhi and who are voters in Delhi, to register for the Welfare Scheme by March 31. However, the same was obstructed by the Covid-19 lockdown that was promulgated wef March 25, 2020, and due to the Delhi Government’s website server being down. “Because of the lockdown and the Respondent’s server being down, many Advocates who wanted to register themselves, were not able to log in. The Petitioners received various complaints regarding their inability to register as the Respondent’s server was down,” the plea states. Further it is submitted, “in an extra ordinary situation of lockdown, where the offices were closed and not functional, the complaints regarding inability to register due to server being down continued and the Respondents were repeatedly reminded through email and WhatsApp messages, and also requested to extend the time up to 30.04.2020. with a hope that the lockdown will be lifted on 15.04.2020, and on return of normalcy, advocates will have sufficient time to get themselves registered. However, the Law Department of Respondents extended time only up to 14.04.2020, contrary to the request made by the petitioners in the facts and circumstances. The problems with the server continued in the meantime.” In this backdrop it is submitted that failure of the Government to further extend time is totally arbitrary and unreasonable. It is contended that the non-extension of time for registration was a “deliberate attempt” to deprive a large number of Advocates, who fulfill the eligibility criteria, from benefitting under the scheme. “The time fixed for registration during lockdown was too short in the situation faced in Delhi and the Respondents ought to have extended the time. By this act, Respondent No. 1 has deprived many advocates, who are legitimately entitled for being registered, but were denial opportunity, since they were not able to log in due to no fault of theirs, but the failure of Respondent No. 1,” the plea states. The Council has submitted that over a month has elapsed since notification of the Welfare Scheme however it has not been implemented so far even though the insurance policies as promised under the scheme have become necessary to provide treatment to lawyers, particularly during Covid-19. Accordingly, it has sought for a direction to the Delhi Government to release money and issue insurance policies for Mediclaim for Rs.5 lacs and Term insurance of Rs.10 lacs to 29,098 Advocates who are already registered under the Welfare Scheme.
