On an estate of 4.5 hectares, surrounded by a century old fruit trees, the client wanted to replace a neglected sixties barn by a contemporary design. The new barn fits to both the landscape and the historical buildings on the estate, where the main building is the monumental farm ‘Rottenburg’. Besides shelter for the sheep and storage, the new barn also accommodates an apartment.Save this picture!Courtesy of Workshop architectenSave this picture!Floor PlanSave this picture!Courtesy of Workshop architectenThe main structure consists of four timber slabs that divide the barn into three zones: a barn area, a semi-transparent intermediate zone and an apartment. Openings in the slabs offer a view from the apartment in the yard and the old orchard. The semi-transparent intermediate zone connects the south-west side with the north-east side of the farmyard. The facade consists of black-stained Douglas, which contrasts with the raw wood on the inside.Save this picture!Courtesy of Workshop architectenSave this picture!StructureSave this picture!Courtesy of Workshop architectenProject gallerySee allShow lessCorner House / DSDHASelected ProjectsMehrabad House / Sarsayeh Architectural OfficeSelected Projects Share Photographs:  Workshop architecten Manufacturers Brands with products used in this architecture project Architects: Workshop architecten Area Area of this architecture project Area:  270 m² Year Completion year of this architecture project Contractor: Year:  Barn Rijswijk / Workshop architectenSave this projectSaveBarn Rijswijk / Workshop architecten Barn Rijswijk / Workshop architecten CopyAbout this officeWorkshop architectenOfficeFollowProductWood#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsIndustrial ArchitectureBarnResidential ArchitectureHousesRijswijkThe NetherlandsPublished on December 20, 2016Cite: “Barn Rijswijk / Workshop architecten” 20 Dec 2016.

Audio devices to tackle dog fouling

first_img Previous articleUL team get the winning verdict at the Four CourtsNext article1913 lockout takes Limerick students to New York Alan Jacqueshttp://www.limerickpost.ie AUDIO devices that encourage dog owners to clean up after their pets have been installed on both sides of the new River Shannon boardwalk in the city in a novel approach to combating dog fouling.Dog owners who pass the audio devices developed by NUI Maynooth-based company Riteview Solutions, will trigger a message stating: “Do your bit to keep Limerick clean. Stop Limerick Dog Litter. Use any bag any bin — please pick up after your dog.”Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up Limerick City and County Councils plan to relocate the devices currently operating in the city area to other spots throughout Limerick during the coming months. The local authority is also considering the option of installing additional devices at other sites.Welcoming the  initiative, Mayor Kathleen Leddin said it was important for dog owners to pick up their pet’s litter as dog waste was not only a nuisance but it could also carry diseases that were harmful to humans.The installation of the audio devices has also been welcomed by the Limerick City Tidy Towns Committee, which regularly undertakes clean-ups throughout the city in conjunction with the local authority.Tidy Towns representative Maura O’Neill described it as a fantastic development that would help keep streets and green areas clean by encouraging dog owners to take greater responsibility.“Dog litter is at the top of people’s minds as the worst form of litter and these audio devices help to spread the message that allowing dogs to foul in a public area and then not picking it up is simply unacceptable,” said Ms O’Neill.Limerick City and County Councils environment awareness officer, Sinead McDonnell, explained there are a number of simple ways in which dog owners can help keep public areas dog litter free.“The message we are promoting is simple; always carry a bag to clean up after your dog.  Failing to clean up after your dog is the same as littering and is an offence under the Litter Pollution Acts.“There are now a wide range of options available to dog owners for cleaning up after their dogs. Check at your local vet, pet shop, supermarket or online,” she said. #HearThis: New music and video from Limerick rapper Strange Boy RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR Facebook NewsLocal NewsAudio devices to tackle dog foulingBy Alan Jacques – April 4, 2014 862 WhatsApp Email New Music: 40Hurtz Advertisementcenter_img Linkedin Watch the streamed gig for Fergal Nash album launch Celebrating a ground breaking year in music from Limerick Print Emma Langford shortlisted for RTE Folk Award and playing a LIVE SHOW!!! this Saturday #SaucySoul: Room 58 – ‘Hate To See You Leave’ Twitter TAGSLimerick city councilLimerick County CouncilMusic LimerickRiteview Solutions last_img read more

Corn Production

first_imgGeorgia’s field corn acreage is up and yields should be strong, but prices remain disappointingly low for producers, according to University of Georgia Cooperative Extension weed specialist Eric Prostko.Because cotton prices have slipped to 67 cents per pound, Georgia producers have looked for alternative crops to cotton. Field corn is a viable option, especially since it is widely used as a rotational crop for growers who farm peanuts, another popular commodity in Georgia.The U.S. Department of Agriculture projects that Georgia farmers will harvest 355,000 acres of corn this year, up 25 percent from last year’s 285,000, according to Prostko. “Field corn is a crop that Georgia growers will always count on every growing season. While it requires regular chemical applications to avoid diseases like corn rust and irrigation because of its strong dependence on water, it remains a valuable commodity for our producers,” Prostko said. “Now, is the price where we would like it to be? No, but it remains a potential strong option for our growers to consider, especially if cotton prices remain as low as they have for an extended period of time.”Along with increased acreage, Prostko said several farmers are “hitting their marks” with projected corn yields. Georgia’s expected increase in yields coincides with the country’s projected boom in corn production this year. The USDA National Agricultural Statistics Service forecasts corn production at 15.1 billion bushels, up 11 percent from last year.Georgia growers faced challenges this year in achieving high production. Excessive rainfall during a two-week period in late March and early April delayed some plantings in south Georgia. Farmers also overcame drought-like conditions during the summer. Prostko estimates that between 75 and 85 percent of Georgia’s corn crop is irrigated, which was a necessity this year, especially in July.“We’re going to compensate our moisture deficits through irrigation. Our farmers are watering every day or every other day,” Protsko said. “Some may never shut the pivot off because it takes so long to get around, you’ve got to just keep it going.”Field corn is a high-water-use crop and south Georgia soils are sandy and contain low organic matter that doesn’t hold moisture well. Georgia also experiences extremely high temperatures during the summer, which results in a lot of evaporation.“It’s like we’re fighting a drought all the time,” Prostko said.Achieving high yields this growing season is vital for corn growers dealing with prices averaging $3.33 per bushel. Those prices fall far below the $7 and $8 prices producers enjoyed last year and below the $4 threshold for which most producers aim, Prostko said. One option growers have is to store their corn, which Prostko expects to happen until prices rebound.One cost-effective solution that growers have transitioned to in recent years is the use of electric pumps on irrigation systems. Since corn requires constant water application, irrigation systems are constantly running. Instead of paying for diesel fuel, most farmers use electric pumps, a cost-saving solution.To view photos of corn production and research at the UGA, see http://bit.ly/2dboxhO.To watch a video of corn being harvested on the UGA Tifton Campus, see http://bit.ly/2ckrE9Y.last_img read more

UK mulls comply or explain, rigid fee cap for DC funds

first_imgThe UK government is to consider capping fees charged by defined contribution (DC) funds, imposing either an absolute limit of 0.75-1% or allowing a more flexible comply or explain approach.As the employer association CBI warned that a fee cap could lead to higher costs amid “historically low” charges by some pension providers, the Department for Work & Pensions (DWP) said its consultation would also consider banning active member discounts (AMDs), whereby fees increase if a member ceases contributing to a pot.In the consultation’s foreword, pensions minister Steve Webb also stressed that examining the method of fee disclosure was as important as the potential for a cap.“We want to assess what can be done to improve transparency in pension scheme charges and to look at whether there is a role for the government in improving disclosure,” he said. “We also want to test the case for capping default fund charges and have offered a range of structures to help tease out some of the various issues.”The department proposed introducing either a 1% cap or a 0.75% cap, or imposing a 0.75% threshold while allowing companies to justify charges up to 0.25 percentage points higher when registering a new scheme with the Pensions Regulator (TPR).Webb hinted at a comply or explain approach during a recent speech, saying that if companies could justify a charge higher than the cap, they should be allowed to “make the case”.Under proposals, a cap would come into effect from April 2014 for any companies yet to reach their staging date for auto-enrolment, while any firms already compliant with auto-enrolment would have until 2015 to comply.Shadow pensions minister Gregg McClymont was quick to attack the proposals when announced by Webb in the House of Commons yesterday, arguing there was “a gap between the rhetoric and the reality” of Webb’s pronouncements on fees.The proposals also received a mixed response from the industry, with the National Association of Pension Funds (NAPF), Barnett Waddingham and master trust provider B&CE warning that it was more important to view fees in the context of value for money.The NAPF’s head of policy and advocacy Helen Forrest emphasised the importance of transparency and scale in delivering good pensions outcomes.She said: “Charges should be seen as part of a bigger picture that includes quality of services provided to savers through their working life and a robust investment strategy that generates good returns.”Mark Futcher, a partner at Barnett Waddingham, welcomed government action “to curtail overly high pension charges”.But he added: “Charges need to be viewed in context – it is the overall value that is important. Good-quality education, engagement and governance are important factors, and we have seen much legislation and best practice guidance in this area.”Meanwhile, Darren Philp – until recently the head of policy at the NAPF and now acting in a similar capacity for B&CE master trust The People’s Pension – urged the DWP to standardise the industry’s fee-charging structure, noting that, without such an approach, the attempt to lower costs would be “futile”.“Our view is that pension providers should focus on value for money – giving the best product possible at the cheapest possible price – rather than inventing new and often obscure methods of charging,” he said.Union umbrella group TUC was more positive about the cap, but said the potential for a 0.75% cap was only a “good initial step” to provide members the reassurance they required.The group’s general secretary Frances O’Grady said: “In the longer term, we want the charge cap to be reduced to 0.5% – the level that good schemes like NEST already charge.”Proposals for an inflexible fee cap come after Webb previously seemed opposed to such an approach, noting that it could result in employers getting “false comfort” that the annual management charge on offer was low enough to attract government approval, when better rates could be achieved.The consultation will close by 28 November.,WebsitesWe are not responsible for the content of external sitesLink to DWP’s ‘Better workplace pensions: a consultation on charging’ paperlast_img read more
