Along a series of lushly green mountains, narrow rice field terraces are divided by a mountain stream. Surrounded by this complicated yet beautiful abundant nature, a settlement can be seen in Kashiwano-machi, a town in Kaga city, Ishikawa, Japan. The project site was established in an gap along by a national road running the edge of the city. How should the building be designed to fill the space in a town that was slowly built up over a long period of time by people and nature?

It was thought that this approach may be necessary and most natural for the residents and town people. Save this picture!© Nacasa & PartnersA “Kura” (Japanese warehouse) is a feature of the typology of the town. It is a secondary house that can be seen anywhere, since every house in the town has a Kura. With small, aesthetic proportions, it fills the space and distance between houses and it helps block the prying eyes of neighbors. Save this picture!© Nacasa & PartnersIt can be said that the planning site complies with the traditional construction style of the town: a house like a Kura with a few open doors is built between a busy national road and the head house in which the client family lives. Additionally, the volume of a Kura suits the current “a house for a woman living alone” theme. While moving forward with the plan, the typological aspect of the Kura was used within the constraints of the building’s site and context to specialize the process. The process begin like this: a decision was made using a volume study that maintained the proportions of the dialogue between the building plan and the surrounding environment. Then, between the main house and the planned building, a chevron shaped courtyard was made way for, creating a complete assembly whose plan is known as Kunoji. Save this picture!© Nacasa & PartnersBetween the Kunoji and the main house the space became a welcoming courtyard and, at the same time, the north-western side of the Kunoji produced a small space that answered the client’s request of having a private garden. Via this process an architectural shape that acts as a part of the town was derived.

Natalie gold lifts Team South Africa

first_imgHe added: “World records used to be broken by 10 to 15 seconds, but the margins people are breaking world records by is now plateauing. I think it’s a good sign at the end of the day that or athletes are getting better.” ‘The standard has been raised so much’“The standard of the sport has been raised so much in the last four years, so I knew I would have to fight like I’ve never fought before.” Although not as fast as her world record winning time in Beijing, the win was Du Toit’s third in succession in the event at the Paralympics. It also took her total of Paralympic gold medals to 12. He said he had mixed feelings after winning bronze in London. “To be honest, I’m a little disappointed as I was hoping to reach 14 metres, but I’m more excited about this bronze medal than any of my previous gold medals,” he told reporters. After the race, Du Toit dedicated her win to the former president of Gauteng Central Aquatics, Cathy Doyle, who passed away recently. She told reporters: “Cathy was supposed to be officiating here and it’s very sad because she was at the last world championships by the side of the pool. Natalie du Toit captured her second gold medal of the London Paralympics with a convincing victory in the 400m freestyle S9 class on Tuesday evening as Team South Africa’s tally improved by three medals. ‘This is not just a hobby sport’Addressing a media conference, Spence said: “The fact is our athletes are getting better. They’re training full-time. This is not just a hobby sport. It’s professional sport at its very best,” he told a news conference. “I have to be happy as I swam a personal best,” Sapiro said. “Some countries are enjoying far better levels of funding, which in turn leads to better results. We would like to put it down to their (the athletes’) hard work rather than anything else.” IPC media and communications director Craig Spence said 279 world records were set in Beijing. By Tuesday in London, 137 world records had been set, along with 81 Paralympic Games records. Shireen Sapiro was third in the defence of her 100m backstroke S10 title. Despite finishing in bronze medal position, her time of 1:09.02 was faster than her winning time in Beijing and was also a new African record. The South African star touched the wall in 4:30.18, almost 10 seconds ahead of second placed Stephanie Millward of Great Britain. Bronze went to Australia’s Ellie Cole, while South Africa’s Emily Gray finished seventh. Bronze medalMichael Louwrens, 52, won a bronze medal in the f57 men’s shot put with a season’s best heave of 13.64 metres, worth 958 points. Russia’s Alexey Ashapatov claimed gold with a Paralympic record distance of 16.20 and 989 points. Poland’s Janusz Rokicki, whose best put was a distance of 15.68 metres, edged out South Africa’s Louwrens by only two points with a tally of 960.center_img Charl Bouwer tried to repeat as champion in the 400 metres freestyle S13, but was beaten into fifth place. The top three countries remain the same with Great Britain (23, 30, 26, 79) in second and Russia (23, 22, 17) in third. ‘I want to dedicate this medal to her’“I try and picture her sitting there on the chair and the whole idea for me was to swim the 400m for her. She really helped me in the province and I want to dedicate this medal to her and to her family who are still supporting me, even in their time of grief.” Belarussian sensation Ihar Boki won his fourth gold medal with his fourth world record, clocking 3:58.78. Ukraine’s Danylo Chufarov, who finished second to Bouwer in Beijing, was second again, with Russia’s Aleksandr Golintovskii in third place. Canada’s Summer Mortimer took victory in a world record 1:05.90, while Sophie Pascoe of Australia, with whom Sapiro tied in Beijing, won silver in an Oceania record of 1:06.69. MedalsAfter Tuesday’s action, Team South Africa had accumulated three gold, five silver and seven bronze medals for a total of 15 medals. The country moved up one one position on the medal table from 23rd to 22nd place. The comments by Louwrens and Shireen Sapiro about the higher standards of competition were confirmed when the International Paralympic Committee said the London Paralympics were on course for more world records than were set in Beijing in 2008. ‘It’s amazing’“The standards are huge, they’ve jumped in leaps and bounds and it’s amazing what happens in this world of sport.” Louwrens first competed in the Paralympics in 1996 in Atlanta where he won gold in the shot put. He followed that up with gold medals in Sydney and Athens. Front-running China has won 53 gold, 39 silver and 40 bronze medals, bringing their total to 132. 5 September 2012 Would you like to use this article in your publication or on your website?

Five generations of family and one barn

first_imgShare Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest Including my children, five generations of the Reese family have worked and played in the old barn on my parent’s property — that is a lot of pitchforking and hay fort building.When faced with a decision about the future of this incredible, historic structure, my parents made the decision in 2010 to hire a gifted Amish crew to give it a major makeover for future generations of Reeses to continue to work and play beneath the ancient rafters of this grand old barn. Based on the saw marks on the beams, the style and the roofing material, it has been estimated that the barn was built between 1870 and 1880. Think about how Ohio agriculture has changed since then!My parents are the third generation of the Reese family to own the farm. My great-grandfather, Pearl Jay Reese, and his wife, Jessie Mae, purchased the farm in 1918. Here is more about the barn from the Hancock Historical Society.For three generations, the 1,200 square foot barn housed a dairy operation. The barn is a typical, three-bay, English ground barn, and the size and design of are reminiscent of a New England style. While some of the material is hand hewn, the smaller braces (scantlings) are circular sawn. The barn builders probably made use of some of the last old-growth material available in the area that could span the whole length of the barn as one piece of lumber. Both the plates and purlins are one piece (“one stick”). The orientation of the bracing in the barn is unique. The whitewash on the walls from the old milking parlor on the east side of the barn is still visible, and there is evidence that the milking parlor replaced an earlier grainery. The Reese barn is one of seven that will be featured on the third annual Hancock Historical Museum Historic Barn Tour on Sept. 12. The tours have proven to be a great way for non-farmers to connect with agriculture, but also a great way for modern farmers to re-connect with their agricultural heritage.This year’s tour features the oldest set of barns overall, though the area may have actually been settled later than parts of the county on previous tours. In several cases, the younger barns from earlier tours were the second barns built on the farms.Retired Hancock County Extension educator Gary Wilson was instrumental in getting the tour started and was surprised about how much he has learned about his community and heritage in the process.“This has been a look at the farm heritage here. I have learned a lot about these barns. I discovered I have one 8-inch by 8-inch beam in my barn that is 70 feet long. A neighbor has one that is 80 feet long,” Wilson said. “The Hancock Historical Museum has professionals on staff who know how to look into the records and property deeds and each barn owner on the tour gets a rundown of the history of their barns. Those things are really interesting. Many of these farm families go back several generations and these tours bring back family to see the barns. It is like a family reunion.”Wilson has learned much about his own family history in recent years, in part through the barn tour.“We have my great grandmother’s farm records from 1895 to 1928 — if they bought a pair of boots they wrote it down. They fit everything they bought for a year on a half piece of paper. They bought hardly anything,” he said. “Some years they grossed less than $400, but yet they built a house and a barn. I have the bill of sale for when they built the barn in 1905 — it cost $1,465. That was the only year they had more expenses than they had income. You couldn’t just go to Ag Credit and get an operating loan in those days. They just used what they had.”Because of the value of the tour for local farming, the area’s agricultural community has been very supportive of the tour in terms of sponsorships. Sponsors for the event include the Hancock County Farm Bureau, Ag Credit, Findlay Implement, Legacy Cooperative, Advanced Drainage Systems, Inc., and Archbold Equipment Co. Other sponsors are Citizens National Bank, Reineke Family Dealerships, and Findlay-Hancock County Convention & Visitors Bureau.Ultimately, the inherent appeal of the barns attracts the initial attention for tour goers, but it is what can be learned about the people who built the amazing structures and their descendants that really resonates with those on the tour. Those dynamic craftsmen from yesteryear left their legacy in the timbers and the ingenuity that has defied the elements and laws of nature for generations.“Everybody can trace themselves back to the farm. When you go back, that barn was the centerpiece of the farm. It was the first place you went and the last place you left every day. Those days have changed, but many people are still using them on the farm and some people have kept them up,” Wilson said. “They built things to last back then and they didn’t use nails and screws and bolts. They didn’t have engineers with graduate degree or blueprints. They didn’t have rulers — just something similar to a framing square. They cut out sticks of certain lengths for measuring. It was just common sense based on knowledge that had been passed down from their fathers. It is fascinating to think about how these barns were built.”Today that craftsmanship provides glimpses into a lifestyle that is hard for us to imagine. Some say those were the good old days, though a look at the harsh realities that had to be endured back then may encourage you to think otherwise. Either way, the ghosts of our forefathers inhabiting Ohio’s rural barns offer something people are looking for — insight into a way of life that is tough to fathom, but fascinating to contemplate.The third annual Historic Barn Tour on Saturday, Sept. 12 from 10-4. It is a self-guided tour of seven historic barns in western Hancock County. Pre-sale tickets for $10 are available at the Hancock Historical Museum and sponsor locations in Findlay. Tickets can be purchased online at http://historicbarntour.brownpapertickets.com.

Pew Study Says Internet Users More Social, Civically Engaged

first_imgSocial Networks and Group ParticipationThe survey finds that social media and social networking sites in particular have become important tools for groups and organizations. 48% of those who are active in groups say that those groups have a Facebook page, and 42% say the groups they’re active in use text messaging. 30% say their groups have their own blog, and 16% say the groups communicate with members via Twitter. That old stereotype that Internet users are isolated and anti-social is getting harder and harder to justify. In fact, the latest study from the Pew Internet and American Life Project, aptly titled “The Social Side of the Internet,” challenges this notion even further, finding that Internet users are actually more active in voluntary groups and organizations than non-Internet users.According to the research, 75% of all American adults participate in some group activity. But the difference between Internet users and non-Internet users is rather striking, with 80% of the former and only 56% of the latter active in groups. The research found that social media users are even more likely to be group participants: 82% of social network users and 85% of Twitter users are, for example.Internet Is Making Us More Socially Engaged, Making Groups More EffectiveThe survey finds that most Americans see the Internet as having a major impact on groups’ organization, communication, and effectiveness. 68% of all Americans – both Internet users and non-users – say the Internet has had a major impact on the ability of groups to communicate with members. And 62% say the Internet has had a major impact on the ability of groups to bring attention to an issue. It isn’t simply that Internet users are more active in groups and organizations. According to the survey’s findings, these people are also more likely to feel a sense of pride and accomplishment about their contributions. That’s an important feeling for groups to be able to encourage in their members, one that in turn likely prompts continued participation. For people who want to be involved in groups, who want to make a difference, and who want to work with people they trust, this survey finds the Internet is likely the place where they organize themselves.

Mens Hockey No 15 Ohio State uses strong defense to secure OT

Ohio State junior forward handles a faceoff during Ohio State’s 2-1 overtime win against Minnesota Friday, Dec. 8. Credit: Nick Hudak | For The LanternRedshirt junior goalie Sean Romeo had arguably his worst series of the season last week against Penn State, giving up nine goals in two games while not looking like the net-minder who places among the leaders at his position in nearly every statistic this year.Tonight, he showed why he’s been the backbone of this defensive-minded Buckeyes team.No. 15 Ohio State (9-4-4, 4-4-1-0 in Big Ten) needed all 33 saves from Romeo in a tight 2-1 overtime victory at the Schottenstein Center Friday against No. 7 Minnesota.“When someone comes down and you’re not scared that [Romeo] going to let one in it’s always nice,” senior forward Christian Lampasso said. “We did a great job blocking shots today … so it’s not just [Romeo] playing good defensively it’s our whole team, but it’s definitely good having someone so solid in the net.”Lampasso scored the winner in the extra frame for Ohio State after he found the puck on his stick in front of the net from teammate junior forward Dakota Joshua to give the Buckeyes three key points in the Big Ten standings.“Playing against Minnesota, they’re always hard to play against,” Lampasso said. “Any time you can beat a top 10 team it’s always a big W.”Ohio State maintained a 1-0 lead until late in the third period, where sophomore forward Rem Pitlick scored on an odd-man rush to break Romeo’s shutout and force overtime.The Buckeyes had yet to score in the extra period this season, with all four previous efforts eventually moving to a shootout, but Lampasso broke that streak, and gave his team a much-needed boost.“It’s nice to get a couple of bounces there at the end, but you have to work for those, and I just liked our mentality,” head coach Steve Rohlik said. “We kind of gave up the lead late there, but our team could have folded and we went the other way, overtime we had a couple good looks, and it was nice to finish it off.”The Buckeyes opened the scoring in the first period on a power play goal by sophomore forward Tanner Laczynski that beat junior goalie Eric Schierhorn in the top corner. The goal was set up by a series of passes that led to Laczynski being all alone, and he buried his opportunity. Junior forward Mason Jobst and senior forward Matthew Weis earned assists on the play.The assist gave Jobst 100 career points for Ohio State in only 91 games.“It means a lot for sure,” Jobst said. “It’s a milestone I wasn’t sure I was going to get when I got here, but I’ve been surrounded by a lot of great players, last year, this year freshmen year, and the coaching staff has put me in a good spot to be successful.”The second period ended scoreless, but there were strong chances on both sides of the ice. Redshirt junior goalie Sean Romeo made some big saves while on the penalty kill, keeping Ohio State ahead despite being outshot by the Golden Gophers 16-11 in the period.Minnesota controlled most of the third period, and it was up to Romeo to maintain the thin margin, which he did until the Pitlick goal late.Ohio State went a perfect 5-for-5 on the penalty kill, which Rohlik said was a major factor in tonight’s game.“We scored a big power play goal, and at the end of the day it’s a difference,” Rohlik said. “I mean our kill was a bend but don’t break, I don’t think they had a power play goal and we had one, so when you look at it at the end of the game special teams is a key.”The Buckeyes move just a point behind Minnesota after the win, and the victory marks only the second win for Ohio State at home this season.“When you have a good team that believes in themselves, you’re going to have some good finishes and we did that tonight,” Rohlik said.Game 2 puck drop for Ohio State and Minnesota is Saturday at 8 p.m. at the Schottenstein Center. read more

Zidane not interested in managing France – FFF president

first_imgThe French Football Federation (FFF) president Noel Le Graet insists that Zinedine Zidane has never demonstrated any interest in coaching France and he is certain that Didier Deschamps will remain with them until at least 2020Zidane stunned the football world in May when he announced that he had left Real Madrid, just five days after leading them to a third successive Champions League crown.Since then, Zidane has been linked with the role of becoming the new head coach of France with Deschamps himself stating that it will likely happen at some point in the future.And the media feel that the move may actually materialise sooner than expected with many fans and pundits alike suggesting that Deschamps failed to extract the true potential of the France squad, despite winning the World Cup this summer.But Le Graet has dismissed any suggestions that they will be parting with Deschamps.Sergio Ramos, Real MadridZidane reveals Sergio Ramos injury concern for Real Madrid Andrew Smyth – September 14, 2019 Zinedine Zidane has put Sergio Ramos’ availability for Real Madrid’s trip to Sevilla next weekend in doubt after withdrawing him against Levante.“We have contracts until 2020,” Le Graet told BFM TV, via SportsKeeda.“He’s someone who works a lot.

For the first match [of Euro 2020], he will be there.”As for the Zidane speculation, Le Graet had this to say: “There has been no will on his part, manifested by him, to train the national team,”“We have not thought about it. Didier is in place until 2020. Me too, [then] we’ll see.”last_img read more
