Far from the geometric construction methods of a traditional chalet, the interior architecture of this family home is a domestic landscape whose forms emerge from the ground like small functional mountains rising from a valley. Reso¬lutely fluid and modern, the result is a set of lines and organic forms composed around a strip of wood. A large, main room is set above the whole construction, defining the central point of the chalet where the family comes together around a warm hearth.Save this picture!© Vincent Leroux / tempsmachineProject gallerySee allShow less’Calling of the Sea’ – Exhibition Hall for Yantai Development Zone Blueprint / Origi…ArticlesAD Recommends: Best of the WeekArticles Share “COPY” CopyHouses, Residential•Saint-Martin-de-Belleville, France Chalet Beranger / Noé Duchaufour-Lawrance Architects: Noé Duchaufour-Lawrance Area Area of this architecture project ArchDaily Photographs CopyAbout this officeNoé Duchaufour-LawranceOfficeFollowProductsWoodConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesInterior DesignResidential InteriorsSaint-Martin-de-BellevilleInteriorsHousesFrancePublished on February 28, 2012Cite: “Chalet Beranger / Noé Duchaufour-Lawrance” 28 Feb 2012.

2026 World Cup: FIFA as human rights rule-giver

first_img Protecting journalistsInternational bodies Freedom of expression Organisation Reporters Without Borders (RSF) welcomes FIFA’s long-awaiting decision to include human rights criteria in the choice of countries to host the World Cup, but questions its implementation. The names of the countries that will host the 2026 FIFA World Cup were announced today. RSF_en Help by sharing this information June 13, 2018 2026 World Cup: FIFA as human rights rule-giver In its candidacy guide, published in May 2017, FIFA insists on its determination to ensure that the procedure for choosing World Cup hosts was beyond reproach, while in a separate document issued the same month, FIFA announced that it is “committed to respecting human rights in accordance with the UN Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights.” As regards the choice of a country to host the 2026 World Cup, FIFA requested a clear committment to human rights, including the freedom to inform, from candidate countries. So far, so good.“As long as it is really implemented, we can only welcome FIFA’s seductive promise to base the selection of World Cup host countries on rigorous criteria regarding human rights, including press freedom,” RSF secretary-general Christophe Deloire said. “The problem is that FIFA seems to be stepping outside of its role of promoting football in order to instruct governments on the human rights policies they should adopt.”In the chapter on human rights in its document on candidate evaluation, FIFA says it will assign to the selected candidate countries a series of measures designed to improve the effectiveness of their strategy on human rights. “The host country’s implementation of additional measures defined by FIFA is obligatory,” it says.But FIFA’s selection is based solely on the undertakings given by the candidate country and the dossier it provides, even if the external evaluation commissioned by FIFA confirms the existence of threats to human rights and press freedom in the candidate country.This was the case with Morocco, one of the countries that was being considered as the host of the 2026 World Cup, and the three countries whose joint bid was accepted today: Mexico, the United States and Canada. In these circumstances, it is the credibility of the measures recommended by FIFA that are questionable.Morocco, Mexico, the United States and Canada are ranked 135th, 147th, 45th and 18th respectively in RSF’s 2018 World Press Freedom Index.

2018 Click It or Ticket Seat Belt Mobilization May 21-June 3

first_imgLaw enforcement officers from the Ocean City Police Department will be cracking down on unbuckled motorists and their passengers as part of the national “Click it or Ticket” campaign.Beginning May 21 and running through June 3, the annual initiative high visibility law enforcement seat belt patrols. Included is a national publicity campaign designed to ensure that drivers and passengers recognize the life-saving value of seat belts.Using a seat belt is the simplest way a driver and their passengers can protect themselves when traveling. Motor vehicle occupants who buckle up increase their chances of surviving a crash by as much as 75 percent.The “Click It or Ticket” mobilization will be the only statewide seat belt enforcement crackdown in New Jersey this year. The goal of the campaign is to raise New Jersey seat belt usage rate, which currently stands at 94.07%. Law enforcement and safety officials want to ultimately see a 100 percent compliance rate.New Jersey has a strong front seat belt usage rate, but there is still work to do. To meet our goals enforcement must continue along with efforts to educate all motor vehicle occupants about the importance of buckling up on every ride.

Retail govt bond coupon of 6.4% attractive for investors: Analysts

first_imgThe Finance Ministry’s announcement of a 6.4 percent fixed coupon rate for retail government bonds series ORI-017 is a relatively attractive valuation for retail investors, analysts say.Mandiri Sekuritas head of fixed income research Handy Yunianto said the coupon rate reflected a 90 basis points (bps) spread with the Deposit Insurance Corporation (LPS) deposit rate, which is higher than the spread of the previous ORI series.Although the previous ORI-016 offered a higher coupon rate of 6.8 percent, the spread was only 30 bps above the LPS rate at that time. “The current series actually has a bigger spread due to the lowering of the LPS guaranteed interest rate, which has fallen quite deep along with the fall of Bank Indonesia’s [BI] rate,” Handy told The Jakarta Post on Friday.BI has cut its benchmark interest rate by 50 bps so far this year to 4.5 percent in an effort to stabilize the economy amid the volatility caused by the COVID-19 pandemic. Meanwhile, the LPS rate has fallen 75 bps to 5.5 percent during the same period. “That coupon rate is still attractive because it is higher than the deposit rate,” RHB Sekuritas Indonesia assistant vice president Adra Wijasena told the Post. The coupon rate was “reasonable and aligned with investor’s expectation”, he added, citing the yield of the three-year-tenor government debt paper (SUN) of 6.38 percent as of Thursday, according to data from the Indonesia Bond Pricing Agency (IBPA). The ORI-017 series also has a tenor of three years, set to mature on July 15, 2023. Adra added that aside from the attractive rate, retail government bonds were still considered a good investment vehicle as the 15 percent tax for bonds was still lower than the 20 percent tax for time deposits. ORI-017, which will be offered from June 15 to July 9, will be available online across 25 of the DJPPR’s distribution partners including banks, brokerage houses and fintech. The minimum order is Rp 1 million (US$70.23) and the maximum is Rp 3 billion. ORI will only become tradable between domestic investors after a two-month minimum holding period that ends on Sept. 15. According to the latest data from the Finance Ministry’s debt management office (DMO), retail investors owned Rp 95.45 trillion in rupiah-denominated government bonds, around 3.1 percent of the total outstanding bonds, as of June 8. During a webinar held as part of the Post’s webinar series “Jakpost Up Close” on Wednesday, Handy spoke about the low level of individual participation in the bond market. As of June 10, retail investors only held around 3 percent of tradable government bonds, or Rp 95.6 trillion out of the total Rp 3.07 quadrillion, according to data from the DMO.Foreign investors, on the other hand, dominate ownership, holding 30 percent, while banks own 31.7 percent.Despite this, enthusiasm from retail investors has appeared to grow steadily in recent years, as seen by the increase in new retail investor clients across different securities companies. As of 2019, Mandiri Sekuritas had 119,000 retail clients, up from 95,000 the previous year, accounting for around 25 percent of new client growth per year. During the first four months of this year, it booked 11,000 new retail customers. The securities company has been appointed as one of the 25 distribution partners for ORI-017. Digital investment portal Tanamduit, another official distribution partner for government bonds, reported that the number of customers registering on its platform had increased 31 percent to more than 230,000 people as of the end of May. According to a DMO press statement, the process to purchase ORI-017 online will be divided into four phases: registration, billing order, payment and settlement. Retail investors are encouraged to contact one of the 25 distribution partners to place purchase orders through their electronic systems. Topics :last_img read more

Catherine E. “Katy” Hortemiller

first_imgCatherine E. “Katy” Hortemiller, age 78 of Batesville, died Sunday, March 19, 2017.  Born January 16, 1939 in Ripley County Indiana, she is the daughter of Bessie (Nee: Grills) and Paul Wissel.  She married James Hortemiller October 4, 1958 at St. Anthony’s Church in Morris.  Katy was an executive secretary at Batesville Casket Company 23 years before retiring.  A member of the Knights of St. John’s Ladies Auxiliary, she is a past president in addition to being secretary and treasurer for 19 years.  She also served 10 years as secretary of the Knights of St. John’s International.  Katy was a member of St. Louis Church, the Phi Beta Psi Sorority, the Batesville Beautification League and the Batesville Red Hat Ladies.Although generous with giving of her time and talents, Katy enjoyed many interests in her free time.  An avid gardener, she tended to both her flower beds and a vegetable garden.  The excess from the garden was canned so it could be enjoyed over the winter. A good cook, her homemade vegetable soup and peach pie were huge family favorites and they looked forward each year to the traditional Christmas meal of roast beef, mashed potatoes and corn.  She looked forward to all the holidays so she could decorate the house.  Other hobbies included cross stitching, attending sporting events, working jig saw puzzles and playing cards most nights.  Her family teased that Katy apparently had a weakness for shopping and didn’t mind the drive to the Belterra Casino.She is survived by her husband Jim; daughter Lisa Wallpe of Greensburg; son Greg Hortemiller of Cincinnati; sisters Eleen Weisenbach of Batesville, Cornelia Hoffman of Dover, Indiana; grandchildren Erin Smith, Jordan Wallpe, Sarah Wallpe, Alison Wallpe, Anna Wallpe, Evan Wallpe and great grandchildren Lila Smith, Landon Smith and Rhett Wallpe.  In addition to her parents, she is also preceded in death by grandson Adam Hortemiller.Visitation is Wednesday, March 22nd, from 4 – 7 p.m. at the funeral home.  Funeral services are 10 a.m. Thursday, March 23rd, at St. Louis Church with Rev. Stan Pondo officiating.  Burial will follow in the church cemetery.  The family request memorials to the Knights of St. John Scholarship Fund, the Jerry Becker Memorial Fund or the Adam Hortemiller Memorial Scholarship Fund.last_img read more

Landry brothers face off

first_imgJEFF SCHORFHEIDE/Herald photoCarl and Marcus Landry grew up playing basketball against each other in their Milwaukee backyard, but Wednesday was the first time the Landry brothers actually went head-to-head in an official game, when Marcus and the No. 2 Wisconsin Badgers hosted Carl’s Purdue Boilermakers.“We played against each other in the summers in little community games or whatever,” Carl, Purdue’s senior forward, said at Big Ten Media Day. “But in an organized game, this is the first time.“I was very excited — I had it scheduled on my calendar.”Coming into the game, there was plenty of trash talk going back and forth between the two brothers, especially after last year’s matchup was postponed with Marcus declared academically ineligible and Carl taking a medical redshirt due to an injured knee. And although Carl wants to be a supportive big brother, he had simply heard enough of his little brother Marcus’ yapping leading up to Wednesday night’s contest.“Being the younger brother, Marcus likes to talk,” Purdue’s Landry said. “The younger brother always thinks he’s tougher than the older brother, and when I went home this summer for a few days, all I heard from Marcus was, ‘We going to beat y’all, we going to do this, we going to do that.’”While the Landry brothers weren’t primarily guarding each other, Carl did show up his younger sibling by scoring 16 points on 50 percent shooting and grabbing six rebounds. However, it was Marcus who got the last laugh as he chipped in four points and five rebounds to help Wisconsin squeak by Purdue 69-64.“The little time they had on each other, you could tell they were trying to take it at each other,” Wisconsin senior forward Alando Tucker said. “But Marcus definitely has the bragging rights now that we won.”In the second half, Marcus found himself guarding his brother just once after a defensive switch. And Marcus made the most of the lone defensive matchup, swatting his big brother’s potential dunk.But even though neither of the Landry brothers threw down a single dunk in the game, Carl said dunking is at the heart of their rivalry.“We would have dunk contests in our backyard all the time,” Carl said. “Marcus was always the kind of guy who said, ‘Come on, man. Dunk. Show me your dunk.’ And me being the oldest, I was just like, ‘Whatever, get out of here.’“He was always challenging me, and if I ever did compete with him in a real dunk contest, I don’t even know who would win. …If I did win, he would still say he won just because he’s the younger brother.”During their childhood backyard-dunk contests, Carl said he always beat up on Marcus.“Growing up, you always bully your brother,” he said. “You know, dunk on him, punch him in the stomach.”Many fans, players and even coaches looked forward to Wednesday’s Wisconsin-Purdue game just because of the Landry brothers matchup.“I think it’s something that’s unique, anytime you get a chance to go against your brother and compete like this,” Purdue head coach Matt Painter said. “Especially for Carl, coming back to the state of Wisconsin and being able to perform.“It’s got to be a little bit eerie for them, but I think a lot of fans like to see it.”The matchup wasn’t just eerie for Carl and Marcus, however. It was also rather awkward for the approximately 50 Landry friends and family who were in attendance, stuck in the middle of cheering for either Carl’s Boilermakers or Marcus’ Badgers.“It’s crazy because my mom said when she comes to the game, she’s going to wear a Wisconsin hat and a Purdue shirt,” Carl said. “And when Marcus scores, it’s two claps and when I score, it’s two claps. She can’t cheer more for one son than the other.“But it’s really just an honor for both my mother and my father to have two sons playing against each other.”last_img read more

Questions surround asbestos pipes left after replacement works

first_imgQuestions have been raised over a stretch of pipes left behind after pipe replacement works from Lough Salt to Letterkenny.The old pipes, which were made with asbestos, are believed to remain in the ground alongside the new water infrastructure.Cllr Michael McBride raised the matter with the Letterkenny MD on Wednesday. He asked what policy the council has on the disused pipes, given that the public is advised to dispose of other asbestos waste in a safe manner. Joe Ferry, Senior Chemist for the council said that there is no environmental risk with leaving the pipes in the ground, given the amount of time they’ve already been there.“It’s more of a risk if you move them at all,” Mr Ferry said.Cllr McBride replied: “My own opinion is that they should be removed.”The issue was raised outside of the planned agenda at this month’s municipal district meeting.

Global partners join forces on SKA

first_imgAustralia – Department of Innovation, Industry, Science and ResearchChina – National Astronomical Observatories, Chinese Academy of SciencesItaly – National Institute for AstrophysicsNew Zealand – Ministry of Economic DevelopmentRepublic of South Africa – National Research FoundationThe Netherlands – Netherlands Organisation for Scientific ResearchUnited Kingdom – Science and Technology Facilities Council SAinfo reporter 3 January 2012 The world’s biggest telescope project has taken a crucial step forward, with its international partners joining forces and agreeing funding for the detailed design of the Square Kilometre Array (SKA). The SKA is a €1.5-billion global science project to build the world’s largest and most sensitive radio telescope. Scientists, engineers and industry partners from around the world are collaborating on research and development for the SKA, which will be capable of answering some of the most fundamental questions about the universe. South Africa, allied with eight other African countries, is competing against Australia (allied with New Zealand) to host the SKA. The decision on the host country is due to be announced in early 2012. On 23 November, seven national governmental and research organisations announced the formation of the SKA Organisation, an independent, not-for-profit company established to formalise relationships with international partners and centralise the leadership of the SKA project. The signatories – from Australia, China, Italy, the Netherlands, New Zealand, South Africa and the UK – plan to spend €69-million (including in-kind contributions) to fund the project in the period leading up to the construction phase, which starts in 2016. Further signatories are expected to join the SKA Organisation and commit additional resources over the next six months. Professor John Womersley, chair of the founding board that prepared the formation of the SKA Organisation, said in a statement: “I am delighted that the partners have recognised the scientific, economic and societal benefits that investing in international science projects like the SKA can bring.” The new SKA Organisation will directly employ staff, have the power to make legally binding decisions and lead the work of the international partners on the design of the telescope. Outgoing SKA project director Professor Richard Schilizzi said: “We are keen to start reaping the rewards that this new structure will bring, not only to the engineering development work, but to the project as a whole.” The office of the SKA Organisation will be located in purpose-built premises funded by the University of Manchester at Jodrell Bank in Cheshire, UK. The office will take over from the SKA Program Development Office currently based at the University. Dr Michiel van Haarlem was appointed interim director-general of the new SKA Organisation following Schilizzi’s retirement in December. The SKA project is expected drive technology development in antennas, fibre networks, signal processing, software and computing, and power. The design, construction and operation of the SKA has the potential to boost skills development, employment and economic growth in science, engineering and associated industries, not only in the SKA host countries but in all partner countries.

Are modern genetics worth the money?

first_imgShare Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest By Harold Watters, Ohio State University Extension field agronomistAt summer field days and then at Farm Science Review, I had the opportunity to talk with growers about crop prices and how they plan to cut back on costs for 2019. While yield will help offset the cut backs, price is still a concern. One topic that came up several times was to change their genetics to cheaper hybrids or maybe drop traits. This thought somewhat concerns me.I have conducted a number of trials and comparisons over the years and generally have learned that new is better when it comes to choosing a hybrid or variety. One such comparison I have been making over recent years is of a modern hybrid to open pollinated corn varieties. I know this is an extreme comparison but I do actually have some folks tell me they are looking for a modern open pollinated variety so they can produce their own seed. For 2018, I compared a modern traited hybrid, a modern non-traited hybrid, a modern open pollinated variety and an older open pollinated variety (Table 1). Reid’s yellow dent (the old OP) has a history in Ohio and has played a significant part in modern corn breeding. Table 1. Yield and lodging results for 2018 corn comparisons near South Charleston, Ohio.TreatmentModern hybrid – traitedModern hybrid –non-traitedModern OPReid’s yellow dent——— Yield in Bu/A ———18,000 seed/A205.3192.3125.085.536,000 seed/A242.5219.6142.774.3Lsd 0.1014.7— Lodging 1-10 scale (1 standing, 10 flat) —18,000 seed/A111.754.536,000 seed/A111.755.25Lsd 0.100.7 Typically when I make this comparison between my modern hybrid and Reid’s yellow dent, I have about 100-bushel per acre advantage for the modern hybrid. This year, however, with lodging, insect feeding, disease, and a good growing season for these modern hybrids, the differences were a bit more. I use this information when talking with consumers about the value of modern technology in plant breeding. We can also see the benefit to increasing seeding rates for the modern hybrids.Lodging likely had an influence on yield, with the open pollinated Reid’s yellow dent not standing well versus any of the “modern” corns standing quite well.As to the economics (Table 2) and that thought on using modern hybrids versus open pollinated varieties, here is a limited economic comparison of the four corns used in this trial. Looks like the high priced seed is the winner — but keep in mind this also likely has the latest selection criteria applied, meaning it was chosen for sale as a high yield hybrid under current conditions. Table 2.
