The House Carrara’s Project is located in the modernist city of Brasilia and has considered this topic as a determinant factor for its architectural concept and materials choice, also allied to the aesthetic sense the clients were looking for, after all, the environment and the architecture conceived had to be designed to be occupied by dreams, people and its objects.Save this picture!© manufatura creativeThen, it was born a residential project for a couple and its two children, who loved cement, concrete and wood. Out of this dream the house has formed its shape with a clear and objective volume, intentionally creating integrated spaces allying functionality to the modernism required by the city and the family’s day life.Save this picture!© manufatura creativeThe project’s program consists of an intimate house on the top floor, where all the rooms give access to an extensive exposed balcony that acts as a big solarium for contemplation. This results in great environments for each resident.Save this picture!© manufatura creativeOn the ground floor, all the rooms are divided by operable doors and panels that aid in connecting and isolating spaces. Living room, home theater, kitchen, balcony and gourmet area are connected by the house’s transparency even with the use of concrete and wood panels. The use of the same type of flooring helps the perception of the grand scenario.Save this picture!IsometricThe kitchen integrates with the dining room by folding doors that follow the same cumaru’s wood sheating of the large slatted wood panel hiding the stairs that give access to the top floor rooms, always seeking an intimate and direct circulation.

BASF Touts 2017 Success for Dicamba Herbicide and 2018 Plans

first_img BASF-Engenia-2018-changesDespite well documented problems related to off-target movement of dicamba herbicides in 2017, BASF is chalking up the season as a success while promising increased education and training for 2018. The company shared impressive survey results from their growers and users of Engenia® herbicide Friday. Scott Kay, Vice President, BASF U.S. Crop Protection, said those farmers’ stewardship of the technology was a key to their success.“I spent time talking to growers in Illinois, Iowa, and Indiana, and I spoke to them largely about their stewardship,” he said. “What did they do? What was their best practice? What made for a successful Engenia herbicide application? Following an application checklist, I think came out in nearly every conversation. They clearly had a plan and they had been trained on that plan. Using approved nozzles was also critical, so they had to change what they did before and adopt the new technology and new nozzles specific for this application. We gave away over 700,000 of those nozzles this past summer.”He added success also depends on understanding what crops are in nearby fields and maintaining a good line of communication with BASF representatives.In the new round of training BASF Technical Marketing Manager Chad Asmus says they will share what they found that led to off-target movement this season, “like improper nozzles, improper boom height, wind speed and direction, in many cases spray system hygiene, understanding how sensitive soybeans can be to small doses of dicamba and potential contamination points within the mixing and loading process.” Asmus added, “We also identified in some geographies nighttime applications and applications during a temperature inversion.”There is an updated Engenia label for the 2018 growing season which adds requirements for spray application training, record keeping, wind speed limitations, and application timing restrictions. Asmus explains the product is now a restricted use pesticide.“Only certified applicators and those operating under their guidance, may purchase and apply Engenia herbicide. Additionally, applicators must complete dicamba training prior to the application. To help applicators meet these new requirements, we will expand our Engenia On Target Application Academies. Application materials in both English and Spanish will be available at in-person training sessions and through enhanced mobile applications. We believe that when the label is followed, these updates will help to address concerns for next season.”BASF field reps investigated 787 soybean symptomology claims during the 2017 season.From BASF release:In the survey, 400 soybean and cotton growers across the country said the newest BASF technology, Engenia® herbicide, designed to battle tough weeds for dicamba tolerant (DT) crops, provided them with cleaner fields in the 2017 growing season. Growers rated weed control from Engenia herbicide an 8.6 out of 10 nationally (on a scale of 1-10 with 10 being best).In addition to high satisfaction with weed control, 85 percent of growers surveyed planned to use Engenia in 2018 and 83 percent planned to recommend the product.“While most growers achieved great results stewarding DT crops this season, some non-DT farms experienced symptomology that may have come from the improper use of the new technology,” said Asmus, “BASF worked with growers to better understand what was occurring.”BASF field reps investigated 787 soybean symptomology claims during the 2017 season, most of which had no impact on yield. However, in a few isolated cases, yield may have been affected where the terminal growth was inhibited.“Developing a fact- and science-based recommendation that focuses on a long-term solution for farmers remains a critical part of working together,” said Asmus. “That’s why we recently met with weed scientists from across the country to share 2017 season results and work collaboratively on a path forward. Growers demanded new technology in the fight against resistant weeds and they looked to DT cotton and soybeans and new chemistries as the next evolution in farming. By working together and properly applying crop protection products, more farms can experience cleaner fields and greater yields.” Facebook Twitter BASF Touts 2017 Success for Dicamba Herbicide and 2018 Plans Home Indiana Agriculture News BASF Touts 2017 Success for Dicamba Herbicide and 2018 Plans Previous articleBower Trading Market Strategy Report: Markets Recover Before a Slow Holiday WeekNext articleRyan Martin’s Indiana Ag Forecast for November 20, 2017 Andy Eubank By Andy Eubank – Nov 20, 2017 SHARE Facebook Twitter SHARElast_img read more

Families of victims still await justice on second anniversary of Maguindanao massacre

first_img Mass international solidarity campaign launched in support of Maria Ressa PhilippinesAsia – Pacific News Organisation On the second anniversary of the massacre of 32 journalists by then Maguindanao province governor Andal Ampatuan Sr’s private militia on 23 November 2009, Reporters Without Borders reiterates its full support for the families of the victims and voices its concern about the continuing impunity and the judicial system’s slowness.“We are worried by the lack of progress in the judicial investigation and the repeated postponement of hearings,” Reporters Without Borders said. “Two years after the worst massacre ever suffered by the media, fewer than half of those responsible have been arrested and no one has been convicted. Most have not had precise charges brought against them while those behind the massacre are using every possible kind of appeal to escape justice. Impartial justice must be rendered without delay.“We welcome the judicial system’s rejection of the appeals by several of the people involved but we remind it of its responsibility to the families of the 32 dead journalists. It would be unacceptable if these families had to wait indefinitely for the massacre’s instigators and perpetrators to be convicted. Both the credibility of Philippine justice and the safety of the country’s journalists for years to come are at stake.”In the one of the latest developments in the case, at the start of November, an appeal court rejected a request by Zaldy Ampatuan, one of the leading defendants, to reestablish a decision by former justice minister Alberto Agra absolving him of complicity in the massacre’s planning and execution. Zaldy Ampatuan is one of Andal Ampatuan Sr’s sons and, at the time of the massacre, was governor of the Autonomous Region in Muslim Mindanao, which includes Maguindanao province. On 16 November, he appealed against the rejection of his request to be withdrawn from the list of accused.On 21 November, the families of the victim’s asked the justice minister to reject Zaldy Ampatuan’s offer to turn state witness in an electoral fraud case against former President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo, which would give him preferential treatment.Ampatuan family on trialThere have been many twists and turns in the case in the past 10 months, some of which have highlighted the discrepancies in the judicial system’s regulations and the ineffective way the hearings are being conducted.A hearing on the results of the autopsies on the victims was interrupted on 3 February by the widow of one of the journalist victims outside the courtroom shouting insults at the Ampatuan family’s lawyers. One of the defence lawyers, Andres Manuel, had just suggested that the victims may have died before being shot. He also suggested that they may have inflicted the injuries on themselves.An appeal court ordered Monette Salasay, the widow of Mindanao Gazette journalist Napoleon Salaysay, and National Union of Journalists secretary-general Rowena Paraan on 12 April to explain comments attributed to them in a Philippine Daily Inquirer article which, according to the court, insinuated that its decisions were biased and corrupt. The order could lead to contempt of court proceedings resulting in imprisonment or a fine.Andal Ampatuan Sr and nine other persons were formally charged on 27 May. Several NGOs condemned that fact that 21 other people, including five Ampatuan family members, had still not been charged.Andal Ampatuan Sr pleaded not guilty on 1 June.In an unprecedented decision, the supreme court gave its permission on 14 June for the trial to be covered live on radio and TV at the request of several news media and plaintiffs. Some media condemned the restrictions placed on the broadcasting of hearings.On 1 July, regional trial court judge Jocelyn Reyes-Solis rejected requests made by Andal “Unsay” Ampatuan Jr on 20 August and 16 September 2010 that testimony about his alleged involvement by 33 defendants and Ampatuan family security employee Kenny Dalandag be ruled inadmissible.Later the same month, justice minister Leila de Lima rejected Zaldy Ampatuan’s request to be a state witness in a tax fraud case in exchange for his removal from the list of leading suspects. An appeal court also rejected the offer on 8 August.The lawyers for the defence protested on 31 August that they had not been notified about a prosecution witness’s testimony in court. On 29 September, they made fun of the testimony of the mother of one of the victims.Earlier this month, a police official said some of suspects, including Kanor Ampatuan and Bahnarin Ampatuan, were still hiding in areas controlled by the rebel Moro Islamic Liberation Front. In all, the police have arrested 93 people on suspicion of participating in massacre and are still looking for another 103.During his election campaign in earlier 2010, President Benigno Aquino promised to combat impunity and referred repeatedly to the Maguindanao massacre. The widows of one of the victims appeared in one of his campaign spots.Reporters Without Borders, which supports the campaign against impunity being waged by members of the International Freedom of Expression Exchange (IFEX), urges President Aquino and his government to do everything possible to ensure the Maguindanao massacre trial’s successful conclusion in 2012 and to end the impunity still prevailing in the Philippines.___________________________________08-31-2010: A lawyer and a journalist interviewed as Maguindanao massacre trial resumes11-22-2010: Tribute to victims, one year after Maguindanao massacre RSF_en to go further Filipina journalist still held although court dismissed case eleven days ago Follow the news on Philippines News PhilippinesAsia – Pacific center_img Philippines: RSF and the #HoldTheLine Coalition welcome reprieve for Maria Ressa, demand all other charges and cases be dropped Receive email alerts News June 1, 2021 Find out more November 23, 2011 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Families of victims still await justice on second anniversary of Maguindanao massacre News Help by sharing this information May 3, 2021 Find out more February 16, 2021 Find out morelast_img read more

A Limerick University have found women who are stigmatised after having…

first_imgGardai make arrests following chaotic student party near University of Limerick Twitter Advertisement NewsHealthA Limerick University have found women who are stigmatised after having an abortion experience negative effectsBy Staff Reporter – February 5, 2018 1845 Dr Aisling O’DonnellResearchers from University of Limerick (UL) have found that women who feel stigmatised after having an abortion, experience increased psychological distress and physical health symptoms.Dr Aisling O’Donnell of UL’s Department of Psychology, who led the research, explains: “While in the past, it has been assumed that having an abortion leads to worse mental or physical health, there has been no research-based evidence that this is the case. However, there is evidence that women who have abortions are stigmatised, and also that numerous types of stigma are linked to worse mental and physical health. That was the starting point for our research.”Dr O’Donnell and her team, investigated whether the health issues that related to stigma also applied to the stigma surrounding abortion. The team focused particularly on Ireland, using online surveys to gather information from women who had had abortions about their feelings of stigmatisation and other mental and physical health symptoms.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up “In Ireland, no one can escape the knowledge that abortion is stigmatised in our society, and this includes women who access abortion services,” Dr O’Donnell says.“When women internalise this stigma, they feel isolated from others, and in turn this is associated with psychological and physical health problems.”As her team’s research has found very real health problems associated with stigmatisation Dr O’Donnell believes that it is incumbent on all citizens to reduce stigmatisation of those who have had abortions.“Regardless of whether you would support access to abortion or not, we suggest there is no benefit to denigrating the moral character of any of our citizens, particularly when this is associated with worse psychological and physical health.” She concluded.More about health here.  Limerick nurse helping the fight against COVID-19, calls for round the clock garda patrols near University of Limerick following “out of control” student parties WhatsApp Print TAGSabortionDr. Aisling O’DonnellstigmaUniversity of Limerick Linkedincenter_img Ann & Steve Talk Stuff | Episode 44 | Immersive Software Engineering Email Facebook Decision on FIBA European Championships in Limerick to be made in May University of Limerick research identifies secrets of Fantasy Premier League success RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR University of Limerick ceases funding for off-campus Garda COVID-patrols after sanctioning students following massive street party Previous articleO’ Dea concerned at Governments plan to get rid of contributory State pensionNext articleHoran case a wake-up call for parents Staff Reporterhttp://www.limerickpost.ie last_img read more

And, he said, it is also important for them to build and strengthen their bodies.“We build up our bodies by eating healthy foods and drinking milk and water and juices like orange juice and apple juice,” he said. “We need to take care of our minds and our bodies and we need to start when we are little kids.”Jones said OCAP Troy Head Start offers a holistic educational program for children ages three to five.“We are recruiting children for the 2015-2016 school year now,” she said. “Head Start is an income eligible program and it is a comprehensive pre-school program that includes children with handicaps.”Jones said the children are served USDA-approved breakfasts and lunches and snacks.“We have six classrooms, each with 20 children, and a disabilities aide if need,” she said.Registration for the 2015-2016 school year may be done onsite or at the OCAP building on North Three Notch Street in Troy.
