Designed for a site currently occupied by an arcade and bus stop, the hybrid proposal, known as “Torghallen,” focuses on reconnecting two open plazas by devoting the ground floor to the public. The jury, which selected JAJA’s design ahead of 135 other proposals, stated: “The clear concept of a light building that touches the ground in few points creates a strong connection and transparency between the surrounding urban spaces.”+ 18Save this picture!Plaza. Image © JAJA ArchitectsFrom the architects: At 15-meters-wide, 12-meters-tall and 65-meters-long, Torghallen, volumetrically, is defined as a floating slab with a significant presence in the cityscape. Programmatically, it is organized with market hall on the ground floor and affordable housing on the upper three floors. The ground floor is conceived as an open and flexible space for markets and events. Inspired by the existing arcade, the façade is pulled back to create a transition zone between the interior and exterior space. The covered space also provides sheltered waiting areas for the bus and outdoor service areas for café and market. The large arches have an efficient load carrying structure that also provides generous spatial qualities. The environmentally friendly massive wood construction references the traditional Nordic materiality whilst supporting strong acoustic and tactile qualities. Save this picture!Shops. Image © JAJA ArchitectsSave this picture!Circulation. Image © JAJA ArchitectsThe affordable housing on the upper floors are based on a modular system that allows for repetition in layout, cutting down construction costs and an organization that ensures optimal daylight conditions. The terrace and main living areas are located along the south façade away from the traffic and towards the main plaza. The façades language consists of the structural framework, the terraces, opaque walls and movable sun shading. The different elements form a façade expression that is both cohesive, repetitive and playful. Save this picture!Apartment. Image © JAJA ArchitectsExternal circulation is the most cost effective solution for affordable housing; however, it can often feel invasive to privacy as people pass by. For the north faced circulation space, we propose a semi-public concept where the circulation space through spatial organization can perform as both circulation and informal areas to the apartments. The semi-public space creates niches for private functions, and voids where daylight can filter through. The space performs as a green house, a separate climatic zone, which makes the semi-public spaces comfortable throughout the year. More than mere circulation, the semi-public space becomes a setting that encourages social communities within the housing complex. Save this picture!Concept Diagrams.

Since its construction in 1822, the Ourcq Canal has undergone many metamorphosis. From agricultural land to capital region of France, from Paris to Greater Paris, from industrial transformations to cultural changes, from labour to leisure, the constant renewal of its banks confirm the French adage that one never bathes in the same river. At a time of metropolisation and territorial integration the Ourcq Canal is the common thread of the reinvention of the capital. In the city of Pantin, just before the Paris ring road, converted giants like the Centre National deSave this picture!© Frederic Delanglela Dance (former police headquarters), the Magasins généraux ( former “breadbasket of Paris” and now office of BETC, France’s top advertising agency) and the Grands Moulins (former flourmills and future offices BNP- Parisbas) are revived by new tenants. When entering Paris the canal crosses the small and big follies of the park of Villette. Its banks are covered by joggers and cyclists while the cafés, bistrots, museums and concert halls invite the strollers to take an entertaining break. Avenier-Cornejo’s housing project sits on an exceptional location by the water edge and beside a bridge leading from the Town Hall to the metro station.Save this picture!© Schnepp RenouThe site is crossed by a constant stream of passing and movement on which the office based its strategy for the implementation of the master plan. The architects chose to split the project into three entities and to arrange them in a half-star around a new public square. In doing so, they confirm the status of small centrality of the site and provide to all 3 buildings an address on the square. This choice also made possible the composition of a lush garden visible from the banks of the canal. The three buildings settle in full awareness in this rich and complex surroundings.Save this picture!PlanSave this picture!SectionConscious of the environment, they offer each apartment outdoor spaces (loggias or balconies) facing the garden, the canal and the square, so that their inhabitants can live in a strong link with the exteriors. Conscious of the metropolitan scale and architectural heritage of the city of Pantin, they display solid brick façades with a hollow joint, a material both contemporary, environmentally virtuous and familiar to industrial territories. In a journey from the common to the private, the architects treat with a refined exactness the localisation, morphology and materiality of the buildings.Save this picture!© Schnepp RenouEach building has a distinct shade — anthracite grey, light grey and red — contributing to an impression of diversity and homogeneity at the same time. In the same spirit, windows, shutters and balustrades are made of aluminium with different metallic shades. The layout of the apartments favours the fluidity of the living spaces, the brightness of the rooms and the optimization of orientations, conveying both an image of elegance and robustness.Save this picture!© Charlotte DonkerSave this picture!© Charlotte DonkerThe ground floor apartments extend to large private terraces opening directly onto the garden and thus transforming their location at the foot of the building into an asset. The choice of preserving the existing big trees of the plot allowed to welcome the inhabitants with a flourishing garden. In this garden, robust local species requiring little maintenance and watering were planted. Finally, entomophilous and low allergenic plants brought the double advantage of promoting the biodiversity of insects and birds.Save this picture!© Schnepp RenouProject gallerySee allShow lessPublic Spaces: ArchDaily’s Best Articles on the TopicArticlesZaha Hadid Architects Released Images for the Newly Designed Southbank Tower LobbyArchitecture NewsProject locationAddress:1 Rue du Général Compans, 93500 Pantin, FranceLocation to be used only as a reference.

CME Warns Customers of Possible Impact of Sequestration

first_img By Gary Truitt – Feb 23, 2013 SHARE SHARE Previous articleMonsanto to Appeal Ruling of Brazilian JudgeNext articleIndiana Corn Marketing Council President Dies Suddenly Gary Truitt Some CME Group Livestock and dairy contracts that depend on USDA grading and inspections could be impacted by across-the-board spending cuts. Should the mandatory cuts begin on March 1 – CME’s Managing Director of Agricultural Products Tim Andriesen says the physical delivery and cash settlement mechanisms of certain CME livestock and dairy products could be affected. That’s because the CME’s live cattle contract is dependent on USDA staff that might be furloughed as a result of the cuts. Exchange rules to allow CME to modify the delivery and settlement rules pertaining to the contracts if USDA staff isn’t available. CME hasn’t said if other contracts that could be impacted have rules that could be modified to allow for trading. Reuters has reported that cash settled livestock and dairy products require data that may be unavailable because of sequestration. Furloughs for USDA’s grading and inspection staff would also impact the exchange’s spot call dairy markets. In addition – if USDA’s regular schedule of reports is altered by the sequester – the daily calculation of the CME Feeder Cattle Index and CME Lean Hog index – as well as the monthly calculation used to determine settlement prices for CME Dairy futures products – could also be disrupted.According to CME – the following contracts may be affected by the budget cuts: Live Cattle futures Feb 2013 contract; Lean Hog futures and options, April 2013 and subsequent contracts; Feeder Cattle Futures, March 2013 and subsequent contracts; Milk (Class III and IV), Butter, Cheese, Non-Fat Dry Milk, and Whey March 2013 and subsequent contracts; Spot Call (Butter, Cheese and Non-Fat Dry Milk), March 1 and subsequent trading days.Source: NAFB News Service Facebook Twitter CME Warns Customers of Possible Impact of Sequestration Facebook Twitter Home Indiana Agriculture News CME Warns Customers of Possible Impact of Sequestrationlast_img read more

(Credit: Flintridge Center)The Flintridge Center last month announced the graduation of the 36th class of its Apprenticeship Preparation Program, which was the first class held under its new hybrid education model, created in June in response to the ongoing pandemic, the organization said.The class of seven graduated on Sept. 10, according to the Flintridge Center. The APP provides information, skills, and experience in the construction trades for previously incarcerated or gang-affiliated workers, according to the center.The previous class was cut short by several weeks as the pandemic struck, officials said.“In June, as the pandemic continued and individuals needed opportunities more urgently than ever before, Flintridge Center staff resumed a hybridized model of the program with adjustments to preserve health of participants and staff,” the center said in a written statement.At the time, the APP was one of the only programs of its type in operation amid the pandemic, the organization said.“For participants, this presented an unprecedented opportunity to enter in-demand careers as union hiring has continued amidst the crisis,” the statement said.In addition to in-person instruction, the class has participated in employment development, math tutoring, life skills, and virtual union site visits to get eyes on the construction, center officials said in an August update on the program. “The class also continues to enjoy outdoor physical fitness hikes with the group.”Among the graduates was Reginald Beasley, who said he was laid off from his job at the Rose Bowl due to the pandemic.“Since I’ve been in class, I’ve learned a lot. It’s given me a positive mind frame, and not wanting to go back to doing things I was doing that weren’t good,” he said. “The best thing about it is learning how I can better myself.”After graduating, Beasley said he plans on joining the laborers’ union.Flintridge Center commended the graduates for their accomplishments.“Completing the APP curriculum while taking COVID-19 precautions is no small feat,” the statement said. “Our deepest thanks to our volunteers and partners who make this program possible.More information on the Flintridge Center and the Apprenticeship Preparation Program can be found online at flintridge.org.

Pasadena’s Armenian Community Unhappy With Truce Agreement in Nagorno-Karabakh

first_img STAFF REPORT First Heatwave Expected Next Week Your email address will not be published. Required fields are marked * CITY NEWS SERVICE/STAFF REPORT Pasadena Will Allow Vaccinated People to Go Without Masks in Most Settings Starting on Tuesday Hundreds of Armenian supporters gather at the steps of Pasadena City Hall during “Pasadena for Artsakh” rally at Pasadena City Hall on Thursday, October 15, 2020, protesting Turkish-Azerbaijani aggression and attacks in Nagorno-Karabakh. (Photo By James Carbone for Pasadena Now)It’s been more than a month since deadly fighting between Armenian and Turkish-backed Azerbaijani forces came to an end in Nagorno-Karabakh, but many in the Armenian American community in Pasadena and around the world say land concessions granted to Azerbaijan in a truce agreement signed by Armenia’s prime minister earlier this week went too far.While an end to the bloodshed that began on Sept. 27 comes as a welcome development, the agreement signed by Armenian Prime Minister Nikol Pashinian on Tuesday has resulted in widespread protests in Armenia’s capital city of Yerevan, according to The Associated Press.Under the agreement, Armenian is to hand over territories it held outside of the ethnically Armenian enclave of Nagorno-Karabakh, also known as Artsakh, The AP reported. Among them is the Lachin region, which contains the main road connecting Nagorno-Karabakh to Armenia.Russian peacekeepers are to enforce the truce for five years and are tasked with making sure the road remains open, according to The AP.Former Pasadena City Council candidate Bo Patatian said it seemed as though Armenia’s hand was forced due to the overwhelming military force it faced.“From start to finish, it’s a really bad situation,” Patatian said.“Now there’s civil unrest in Armenia because Pashinian was made to sign an agreement that gave away almost four of the seven major provinces of Artsakh we have held since the 1990s,” Patatian said.“And it wasn’t much of a deal, because in the southernmost part, it actually creates an unimpeded zone between Azerbaijan and Turkey, which basically cuts right through Armenia proper. [That] not only endangers the lives of Armenians in Artsakh, but not directly puts the Armenians in Armenia proper in the line of fire, because now it creates an avenue and a connection between Turkey and Azerbaijan.“But after more than a month of combat, [Pashinian ] signed it because he had no other alternative… There would be more bloodshed if he had not signed that agreement,” Patatian said.The future remains unclear, and Patatian said he was expecting the Armenian Parliament to get involved in the situation soon.But he urged caution and thoughtfulness.“Anything that happens in life that’s made in haste and in a moment of anger and confusion doesn’t necessarily get to a positive outcome,” Patatian said. “I think that, given the opportunity for the dust to settle and for cooler heads to prevail… if history is prologue to anything, then we’ll be able to sort this out in an amicable manner.”Pasadena businessman Chris Karageuzian said he took issue with the agreement.“It’s not something I agree with. We’re waiting to see what truly is going to be transpired and finished because no one can be or should be proud of giving back our rightful lands. There’re talks about Russian peacekeepers already at the front lines and border to escort people out,” he said.“We’re not happy with that result. We demand that we keep those lands. We demand that the world wakes up and help,” Karageuzian said. “It’s something that is beyond just Armenia and Azerbaijan. It’s basically Armenia versus global terrorism and nationalism.”Community members have written to Congress and the president seeking support, he said.“We see no action… We just see words,” Karageuzian said. “We need to strengthen our people. We need to strengthen our economy, strengthen our army and military, the proper way, to defend itself, because we are truly alone.”Former Pasadena City Council candidate Joe Baghdadlian said he, too, was displeased with the seemingly unilateral decision of Armenia’s prime minister.“If I was prime minister of Armenia, I would go back to my people and ask them, ‘What do you think? We’re losing this war and so on because Turkey is getting F-16s, and we [in the U.S.] supply Turkey with F-16s,’” he said.“The United States, our President Trump, he was saying, ‘We will do something.’” Baghdadlian. “He didn’t do anything.” Make a comment Community News Subscribe Herbeauty10 Of The Most Notorious Female Spies In HistoryHerbeautyHerbeautyHerbeauty8 Easy Exotic Meals Anyone Can MakeHerbeautyHerbeautyHerbeautyInstall These Measures To Keep Your Household Safe From Covid19HerbeautyHerbeautyHerbeautyA Mental Health Chatbot Which Helps People With DepressionHerbeautyHerbeautyHerbeautyJennifer Lopez And Alex Rodriguez’s Wedding DelayedHerbeautyHerbeautyHerbeauty10 Ways To Power Yourself As A WomanHerbeautyHerbeauty 19 recommended0 commentsShareShareTweetSharePin it Community News Pasadena’s Armenian Community Unhappy With Truce Agreement in Nagorno-Karabakh By DAVID CROSS and BRIAN DAY Published on Thursday, November 12, 2020 | 1:30 pm faithfernandez More » ShareTweetShare on Google+Pin on PinterestSend with WhatsApp,Donald CommunityPCC- COMMUNITYVirtual Schools PasadenaHomes Solve Community/Gov/Pub SafetyPasadena Public WorksPASADENA EVENTS & ACTIVITIES CALENDARClick here for Movie Showtimescenter_img Business News Name (required)  Mail (required) (not be published)  Website  More Cool Stuff STAFF REPORT Pasadena’s ‘626 Day’ Aims to Celebrate City, Boost Local Economy Community News Home of the Week: Unique Pasadena Home Located on Madeline Drive, Pasadena Top of the News EVENTS & ENTERTAINMENT | FOOD & DRINK | THE ARTS | REAL ESTATE | HOME & GARDEN | WELLNESS | SOCIAL SCENE | GETAWAYS | PARENTS & KIDS Get our daily Pasadena newspaper in your email box.

Enterprise Ireland offers benefits to start lowering carbon emissions

first_imgWATCH: “Everyone is fighting so hard to get on” – Pat Ryan on competitive camogie squads WhatsApp Speaking about the Climate Enterprise Action Fund, Enterprise Ireland’s Aidan McKenna said:“Ireland has an ambitious target to reduce emissions by more than 51% by the end of the decade. The enterprise sector accounts for 13% of Ireland’s emissions so it has an important role to play in this national strategy.“Reducing emissions and adopting more sustainable production practices is a smart business strategy. Increasingly consumers are placing a premium on environmentally sustainable products and services.
