We wanted the house to fit gently between the surrounding houses of the original built-up area and the trees of the old garden, to be able to take advantage of the views and natural resources, and the house to function well naturally in terms of heat and economics, without current artificial “passive standards”. The task was to design a house for a family of four. Parents who work daily in artificial open-space office had a fundamental desire for natural materials and intimacy. The children’s section was required to be easily separable from other areas, prospectively for the time when the children grow up. Great attention was paid to the client’s economy of the house and operation of the house, shading both from the sun rays and during the light pollution generated by the house at night. An outdoor covered space was required for year-round seating and drying of fruits and herbs.Save this picture!© BoysPlayNiceThe plot is situated near Prague, on the southern slope above the Berounka river with a beautiful view of the Brdy hills. The land is accessible from the south, which has become challenge in terms of the layout. There was an old hut and mature trees in the garden – old fruit-bearing in the lower part and conifers and walnut in the upper part of the garden. In the design concept, we wanted to use the maximum allowed space for building the house on the land and to concentrate most of the functions of the house, for easy access, on the ground floor (social and parents’ part), and a smaller children’s part upstairs.Save this picture!© BoysPlayNiceWe stretched the main mass of the house as much as possible between the eastern and western borders in order to create the longest possible southern facade – warming up / heating the house by the sun during the heating season. The summer sun, on the other hand, is naturally shaded by the recessed glazed façade (porch). We tried to place the house on the plot as high as possible to get the best views of the region from the house, we also considered neighbouring buildings (privacy) and had in mind old mature trees. As a result, we decided to place the house roughly in the middle of the plot and at the same time we created two gardens – a southern sunny orchard and a northern shady grove.Save this picture!© BoysPlayNiceSave this picture!PlansSave this picture!© BoysPlayNiceThe main ground floor of the house is made of solid material of ceramic blocks (without external insulation) and partitions, and is covered by a concrete ceiling (feeling safe). The roof above the ground floor is designed as a garden, a meadow with butterflies. On top of it, there is a light wooden shed/hut, as a place for teenagers. Access to the house is via a wavy path leading from the main road. The garage was placed in the lower part and thus not obscuring the views from the living area. Behind the house, there is a garden house with sauna, attached to part of the original hut.Save this picture!© BoysPlayNiceThe layout of the ground floor is divided into a southern social and northern private part. The southern part has five segments, one of which is the entrance hall. Along the entire south wall is a recessed porch, the space between the inside and outside areas. On the wooden floor, there are two children’s rooms in the corners with a common central hall and access to the roof garden. The most beautiful views.Save this picture!© BoysPlayNiceProject gallerySee allShow lessSynergy, From a Monastery to a Music Conservatory / Brückner & Brückner ArchitektenSelected ProjectsModern, Low-Budget and Easy to Build Living Spaces: the Case Study House ProgramArticles Share Houses Czech Republic Architects: kaa-studio Area Area of this architecture project Year:  Save this picture!© BoysPlayNice+ 28Curated by Paula Pintos Share “COPY” ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/959187/new-house-in-the-old-garden-kaa-studio Clipboard Photographs 2020 Projects “COPY” Manufacturers: RHEINZINK, CE.SI.

HSUS Attacks America’s Hog Farmers Again

first_imgHome Indiana Agriculture News HSUS Attacks America’s Hog Farmers Again HSUS Attacks America’s Hog Farmers Again Facebook Twitter By Gary Truitt – Oct 29, 2013 SHARE Facebook Twitter A questionable undercover video from a Minnesota farm released today by Mercy for Animals, a front group for the Humane Society of the United States, is the latest attack against America’s hog farmers. In advance of a press conference that is expected to be full of misinformation, it is important to know the facts: An independent veterinarian, who was taken by law enforcement to the Pipestone facility shown in the video, determined that there were no signs of inhumane treatment or violations of good production standards. Therefore, no charges were filed.But that wasn’t good enough for this Pipestone farm. Its care for animals is so firmly rooted in its commitment to industry best practices that it did something consistent with its proactive approach to continuous improvement – it brought in a third party to investigate. Though the MFA-produced undercover video was unfortunately never made available to Pipestone, the farm’s investigation determined that the employee involved had not been following animal care protocols, and he was immediately fired.America’s pork producers are primarily family farmers who care about the animals they raise and the food they produce for the American consumer. It is the same food they produce for their own families. They don’t need questionable undercover videos produced by organizations with political agendas to remind them of their commitment to animal care.American farmers have the trust of the American people and don’t deserve the onslaught they face from groups such as the Humane Society of the United States that have deep pockets from deceptive fundraising practices.This latest attack by HSUS and MFA clearly is the result of the pressure they’re feeling after a year of significant state and federal legislative losses. HSUS has spent significant amounts of its donors’ money on futile legislative efforts and on a lawsuit that had nothing to do with animal welfare was dismissed by a U.S. District Court judge. HSUS donors, especially the many whose priorities are the protection of companion animals, deserve better than that.

Odessa police’s PAL camp expands to welcome more this summer

first_img Amid the laughter and cheers, the running and jumping, and the excited energy scattering all across Floyd Gwin Park on the feet of dozens of playful kids, Cpl. Michael Hamilton was reminded, standing aside in the shade for a bit, that he was watching just the beginning of camp — and that this was just the start to one of two.There’s twice as much work to be done this year.And he wouldn’t have it any other way.“Knowing that I have two sessions this year, I’m like double-happy,” Hamilton laughed during the second day of camp Tuesday, trying to find the right words. “It’s great. WhatsApp Local NewsCrime Odessa police’s PAL camp expands to welcome more this summer By admin – June 6, 2018 Youngsters urged to be safe over graduation weekends Twelve-year-old Ciandra Mendoza, in red, helps the girls team defeat the boys team in a tug of war match during a day at the Odessa Police Athletic League summer camp Tuesday at Floyd Gwin Park. PAL camp is a youth program that utilizes athletic and recreational activities to create trust and understanding between police officers and youth. Odessa PAL summer camp executive director Sgt. Jon Foust talks about the PAL program. WhatsApp “The more kids that we can reach, the better,” he added.The Odessa Police Department’s Police Athletic League summer camp has been expanded to include two sessions this summer to welcome even more campers, in the camp’s 26th summer of bringing local youth together daily for activities, exercises and fun in the sun.This year, after several summers of 60-child, one-month camps filling up fast and quickly closing registration, the program has doubled in scope, now supporting a full camp running throughout June and another with about 60 other campers running through July.Both camps filled up and now about 120 local kids will have the chance to enjoy weekdays filled with tug-of-war, kickball, playground time and more at Floyd Gwin, plus afternoon field trips to pools and the bowling alley and others, while connecting with officers like Hamilton, who’s in his fifth summer with the program, and Sgt. Jon Foust, the camp’s executive director and coordinator.“I’m really excited about this summer,” said Foust, who’s in his 17th year running the PAL camp and 20th year involved in it, speaking on the chance to have two sessions instead of just one.“I’m really excited about the direction and the progress that we’re making with these kids, and that the administration backs us 100-percent on it,” he said.Each session of the camp is set to run every weekday for four weeks, with the second session starting July 9. Each day, OPD officers spend parts of their shift with campers, and, Foust said, more and more officers are coming to the park to volunteer in their spare time, above and beyond when it’s assigned.Foust said OPD Chief of Police Michael Gerke wanted to expand the program and invest more into it this past year.“Chief Gerke approached us during the off-time, and said this is what he’d like to do and asked if we think we could make it work,” Foust said.“We’re multiple levels of officers short and he’s still committing officers out here from each shift. That shows an unbelievable amount of support from our administration and belief in the program as far as I’m concerned.”Foust said he was excited about the prospect of expanding the camp as soon as it came up.“We’ve always had a waiting list. It was really nice not having to have a waiting list,” Foust said. “Those who missed the June registration gladly took the July. That made it feel better for me, that I didn’t have to tell somebody, ‘No.’”With more time invested into the camp, that means more is ultimately invested into the area’s youth, Hamilton noted.“I think it’s awesome,” Hamilton said. “Chief Gerke is all about community policing, and he sees that this is a big community function for us. He knows that if we can reach the kids and show them that we’re people, we can start building a better community, a better relationship between us and their community.”Foust said that funds the program raises go toward either officer training via PAL conferences, or toward insuring the camps and keeping registration costs low for many of the campers that need it. Citizen donations are welcomed for the Odessa PAL, sharing the same address as the department at 205 North Grant Avenue.“To me, this is exactly what police work is — working with these kids,” Foust said. “We all get into the job wanting to help people.“To me, it’s the most rewarding part of police work that I’ve ever been involved with.” Pinterest Twelve-year-old Ciandra Mendoza, in red, helps the girls team defeat the boys team in a tug of war match during a day at the Odessa Police Athletic League summer camp Tuesday at Floyd Gwin Park.
