This is an extension project on a thirty-five year-old house for a daughter and her husband.  Azelkova tree and a Camphor tree stood on the site since the time the main house was build thirty-five years ago.  Removing these trees was one of the design requirements because the new additional building could not be built if these trees remained.  When I received the offer for the project, I thought of various designs before I visited the site for the first time.  However, all my thoughts were blown away as soon as I saw the site in person.Save this picture!© Daici AnoRecommended ProductsDoorsSaliceSliding Door System – Slider S20DoorsLinvisibileLinvisibile Curved Hinged Door | AlbaDoorsSolarluxBi-Folding Doors – EcolineEnclosures / Double Skin FacadesRodecaRound Facade at Omnisport Arena ApeldoornThe two trees stood there quite strongly. I listen to the stories in detail; the daughter has memories of climbing these trees when she was little.These trees looked over the family for thirty-five years.  They colored the gardenand grew up with the family.  Therefore, utilizing these trees and creating a new place for the client became the main theme for the design.Save this picture!© Daici AnoIn detail, I cut thetwo trees with their branches intact.  Then I reduced the water content by smoking and drying them for two weeks.  Thereafter, I placed the trees where they used to stand and used them as main structural columns in the center of the living room, dining room, and kitchen.Save this picture!© Daici AnoIn order to mimic the way the trees used to stand, I sunk the building addition 70 centimeters down in the ground.  I kept the height of the addition lower than the main house while still maintaining 4 meter ceiling height.Save this picture!© Daici AnoBy the way, the smoking and drying process was done at a kiln within Kagawa prefecture.  These two trees returned to the site without ever leaving the prefecture.The client asked a Shinto priest at the nearby shrine to remove evil when the trees were cut.  Nobody would go that far without a love and attachment to these trees. Save this picture!© Daici AnoWhen this house is demolished and another new building constructed by a descendant of the client hundreds of years from now, surely these two trees will be reused in some kind of form. Save this picture!IsometricProject gallerySee allShow lessPratt Explores the Importance of Cold War Era Pre-Fabricated Building SystemsEventBook Presentation & Architects ConferenceEvent Share 2010 Projects Garden Tree House / Hironaka Ogawa & Associatescenter_img Area:  50 m² Area:  50 m² Year Completion year of this architecture project Photographs Year:  Garden Tree House / Hironaka Ogawa & AssociatesSave this projectSaveGarden Tree House / Hironaka Ogawa & Associates Architects: Hironaka Ogawa & Associates Area Area of this architecture project “COPY” ArchDaily Houses photographs:  Daici AnoPhotographs:  Daici Ano , Courtesy of Hironaka Ogawa & Associates CopyAbout this officeHironaka Ogawa & AssociatesOfficeFollowProductWood#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesHousesJapanPublished on February 27, 2013Cite: “Garden Tree House / Hironaka Ogawa & Associates” 27 Feb 2013.

Palestinian political prisoners shake the walls for hunger striker Bilal Kayed

first_imgNine Palestinian political prisoners launched hunger strikes in solidarity with “administrative detainee” Bilal Kayed on Aug. 7, joining over 100 others on strike since July 31.Strikers include Ahmad Sa’adat, the imprisoned general secretary of Kayed’s party, the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine. After starting his fast on July 31, Sa’adat was immediately punished by Israeli jailors with a transfer to solitary confinement.Hundreds more prisoners announced plans to join a one-day strike inside Nafha, Ramon, Ktziot and Hadarim prisons on Aug. 9.In France’s Lannemezan Prison, imprisoned Lebanese fighter Georges Abdallah and six other Arab and Basque prisoners held a three-day fast starting Aug. 3.On Aug. 8, supporters launched solidarity hunger strikes in a protest tent outside the International Committee of the Red Cross office in Gaza.Kayed, detained under Israel’s “administrative detention” law, will reach the 70th day of his own hunger strike on Aug. 23. He has been imprisoned by Israel for 14 ½ years for participating in resistance activities during the second Intifada. On June 13, the date of his scheduled release, Israel refused to free him, instead slapping him with an “administrative detention” order.This arbitrary decree, issued by an Israeli military commander, sentences him to six more months’ imprisonment without charge or trial. Since commanders can renew these orders an unlimited number of times, Kayed has effectively been interned indefinitely. In response, he launched a hunger strike on June 15 to demand his freedom.Many Palestinians fear Israel will use Kayed’s precedent to hold more Palestinian political prisoners with expiring sentences. Israel currently incarcerates 750 “administrative detainees” among 7,000 Palestinian political prisoners overall.On Aug.11, Israel’s supreme court ruled that a legal appeal for Kayed’s release would not even be heard until Oct. 5, nearly four months after he began his strike. The PFLP called the court’s decision “a death sentence.” (english.palinfo.com)Palestinian attorney Sahar Francis, director of the Addameer Prisoner Support and Human Rights Association, was able to visit Kayed the same day. The organization, which serves as Kayed’s legal counsel, reported its client faces intimidation from his jailors: “For example, he was surrounded by 25 armed police officers even though he is shackled with his right hand and left foot to his bed.” (addameer.org, Aug. 11)Kayed refuses treatmentEarlier, Addameer reported Kayed “is still shackled to his bed with his right hand and left foot. He is suffering from pain in his chest, kidney, jaw, eyes, ears and legs, as well as severe headache. He also suffers from blurred vision, numbness throughout the body and hair loss, as well as yellowness and peeling of the skin.” Kayed said the director of Israel’s Barzilai Hospital, where he is detained, warned that he would be “forcibly treated” if he loses consciousness. (addameer.org, Aug. 8)Kayed refuses to accept any treatment, including examinations, and requests transfer from the medical center, where he was sent on July 17.“I am demanding my immediate return to prison despite my deteriorating health conditions, to stand in one front and on one line in the prison cells of the occupation, side by side with all of the revolting prisoners, raising our loud voice: Your decision will not pass easily!” he wrote in a letter to his supporters on Aug. 1.“What I have received from you through your struggles, your sit-ins, your demonstrations, gives me more determination to continue forward until victory,” he continued. “Either freedom or martyrdom.” (samidoun.net)Samidoun: Palestinian Political Prisoner Solidarity Network has asked supporters to call the White House at 1-202-456-1111 to demand that President Barack Obama, as the representative of Israel’s biggest international funder, intercede for Kayed’s immediate release.The group has held six protests for Kayed in New York, including a march through Grand Central Terminal and the lobbies of two buildings holding offices of the British-Danish security company G4S on Aug. 12, and other demonstrations in Beirut, Brussels, The Hague and Montreal.Kayed and other prisoners affiliated with the PFLP have called on supporters to target G4S, a key contractor for Israel’s prisons, asking on Aug. 7 that they “take up the campaign to defend the prisoners through the international boycott of the occupation and its institutions, and boycott of its complicit corporations, led by the G4S security corporation.” (pflp.ps)The next of Samidoun’s weekly protests in Manhattan will start at 4 p.m. on Aug. 19 outside the G4S office at 19 West 44th St.Announcements and reports of events elsewhere, as well as news on Kayed and other Palestinian political prisoners, are posted online at samidoun.net.Catron is a member of Al-Awda New York: The Palestine Right to Return Coalition and an organizer with Samidoun: Palestinian Prisoner Solidarity Network.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Big Brazilian Corn Crop Sets Stage for Competition

first_imgHome Indiana Agriculture News Big Brazilian Corn Crop Sets Stage for Competition Facebook Twitter Source: NAFB News Service SHARE Previous articleHot, Dry May Brings Drought To Parts Of IndianaNext articleGary Wilhelmi 5/31/2012 PM Comment Gary Truitt The U.S. Grains Council says the stage is set for intense global competition for international corn markets. According to the Council – the U.S. and Brazil are both positioning themselves for a record setting corn harvest. A Grains Council representative based in Brazil says the summer crop harvest there has matched the anticipated volume of 36-million metric tons – 1.4-billion bushels. It’s estimated a record 7.1-million hectares – 17.5-million acres – will be devoted to second season corn – yielding another record setting 29-million tons – 1.1-billion bushels. If these projections are met and the favorable weather continues – Brazil’s total corn harvest for the 2011-12 marketing year is expected to exceed 67-million tons – 2.6-billion bushels. That’s a 13.5-percent increase over last year. The nation typically exports between 15 and 20-percent of their crop.Another factor weighing on the market – according to the Grains Council – is lower than anticipated domestic usage and exports – which have inundated Brazil with ample stocks. As the U.S. competes to build and defend market share – USGC Chairman Dr. Wendell Shauman says the marketing programming offered by the Council becomes increasingly more important.center_img Facebook Twitter SHARE Big Brazilian Corn Crop Sets Stage for Competition By Gary Truitt – May 31, 2012 last_img read more

Food Supply Chain is Strong but Adapting

first_img Facebook Twitter Food Supply Chain is Strong but Adapting By Andy Eubank – Mar 18, 2020 SHARE SHARE Food-supply-system-making-adjustmentsUSDA Secretary Sonny Perdue is telling the country that the nation’s food supply system remains strong thanks to the continuing efforts of farmers to stockers and all in between. But Perdue wants to be sure consumers have that food supply while the coronavirus threat is affecting day to day life.“We don’t want to have a panic next fall because we don’t have enough food,” he said. “We’ve got some demand issues right now. We don’t want to have supply chain issues, and we don’t.”Among all the challenges ahead for the food system, Purdue agricultural economist Dr. Jim Mintert says adapting is high on the list.“I agree with Sonny Perdue,” Mintert told HAT. “In the short run we don’t have a supply chain problem, but it is a big shift and especially when you think about the meat industry. We’re moving a tremendous amount of demand for meat away from the hotel, restaurant, and institutional trade into the retail grocery store trade, and that’s a big shift not only in where people pick that food up but also in terms of the types of products that are typically demanded in a retail grocery store vs. what’s demanded in that hotel, restaurant, institutional trade.He said processors weren’t prepared for such a shift but are now making adjustments, and in many cases scrambling to do so. Adjustments include changing cutting lines, changing management of cold storage facilities, and possibly even working with different wholesalers.“Those changes are taking place as we speak, but the good news I think from a producer perspective is those products are still in demand. That’s true here in the U.S. as well as elsewhere around the world.”What if coronavirus enters the meat processing workforce? Can the food supply chain continue, and safely?“USDA I think has taken some steps, along with the processors, to try and ensure that those facilities would remain open,” Mintert added. “I think they’re trying to work through some of those procedures right now. One of the concerns I know initially was, what would happen if meat inspectors happen to contract the virus and couldn’t work and had to go into some sort of a quarantine. USDA has taken some steps to make sure they can backstop around the country meat inspectors to keep the meat inspection service operational, so certainly in the short run I don’t see a problem.”But livestock producers are nonetheless feeling the pressure. Cattle and hog futures prices have collapsed in recent days, more so than cash prices. Mintert says cash prices are a better indication for producers of what’s going on here in the short term.Mintert is director of the Purdue Center for Commercial Agriculture.(Perdue audio source: Foxnews.com) Facebook Twitter Home Indiana Agriculture News Food Supply Chain is Strong but Adapting Previous articleFarm Bureau Highlights Immediate Challenges Facing the Agriculture SectorNext articleMaking Plans for After COVID-19 Andy Eubanklast_img read more

Two journalists arrested under state of emergency for criticising government

first_img RSF_en Follow the news on Europe – Central Asia News June 8, 2021 Find out more Europe – Central Asia Reporters Without Borders protested today at the arrest and detention of journalists Milovan Brkic and Dragisa Petrovic as part of the police investigation into the 12 March assassination of Serbian prime minister Zoran Djindjic.Brkic, Belgrade correspondent of the Podgorica (Montenegro) daily paper Dan, and Petrovic, its correspondent in Kragujevac (north of Belgrade), were arrested on 7 April on suspicion of involvement in the murder because they had written articles accusing the government of having ties with underworld gangs. But police say they may themselves be involved with the main murder suspects, the Zemun Gang, who they claimed the journalists had agreed to help by obstructing the enquiry through writing articles deliberately misleading the public.”The arrest of the two because they criticized the government in print is extremely serious and a crime against free expression,” said Reporters Without Border secretary-general Robert Ménard in a letter to interior minister Dusan Mihajlovic and culture and media minister Branislav Lecic.”No evidence has yet been presented to show the journalists have links with the gangs. We ask you to explain why they have been arrested and to free them at once if nothing in what they have written justifies their detention.” June 7, 2021 Find out more Respect judicial independence in cases of two leading journalists in Serbia and Montenegro, RSF says Europe – Central Asia RSF calls for a fully transparent investigation after mine kills two journalists in Azerbaijan Receive email alerts to go further Organisation April 11, 2003 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Two journalists arrested under state of emergency for criticising government Help by sharing this information “We’ll hold Ilham Aliyev personally responsible if anything happens to this blogger in France” RSF says The state of emergency declared after the murder allows police to detain for up to 30 days anyone who “threatens the safety of other citizens.” During that period, they are not permitted to contact a lawyer or family members or appear in court. The interior minister can extend the detention for another 30 days.The information ministry suspended distribution of Dan on 18 March after it published several articles questioning the state of emergency and related government measures. The Stampa Komerc distributing company was fined 200,000 dinars (3,300 euros). A 17 March decree restricting media reporting about reasons for the state of emergency and about its implementation, signed by parliament president Nastasa Micic, banned publication of news about Djindjic’s murder that was not confirmed by the government. It provides for fines of up to 500,000 dinars (8,200 euros) and suspension of the media concerned. News News June 4, 2021 Find out more Newslast_img read more
