Each year since 1967, students in the Yale School of Architecture’s professional degree program have designed and built a structure in the summer after their second semester. Founded by Charles Moore as the first academic design-build program in the country, the early years of the Yale Building Project resulted in community centers and campgrounds in Appalachia and New England. Since 1989, the Building Project has created homes for over 50 New Haven families.Save this picture!Floor PlanStudents participating in this year’s Jim Vlock First Year Building Project—created in partnership with Columbus House, a New Haven-based homelessness services provider—have designed a two-unit home in New Haven’s Hill neighborhood. This home, clad in shingles, makes extensive use of cross-laminated timber (CLT) panels, an innovative and sustainable wood product, for structural and insulated vertical and horizontal surfaces. The panels were trimmed offsite and then craned in, continuing experiments in prefabrication that began in last year’s project.Save this picture!© Zelig Fok and Nicole DoanThe prefabrication and panelized nature of the structural elements allowed the students to spend more time working out details in the house, including a long row of skylights along the ridge of the roof, bringing natural light into the double-height spaces of both living units. A sliding interior window shutter in an upper floor bedroom allows a range of natural lighting and view options for residents. These apertures contrast with the exposed natural wood surface of the CLT panels which bring warmth to the interior spaces; cove lighting along the top of the CLT panels bathes the underside of the pitched roof. Eventually, the roof will host an array of solar panels installed by New Haven Community Solar.Save this picture!© Zelig Fok and Nicole DoanSave this picture!Section 1Save this picture!© Zelig Fok and Nicole DoanFirst-year students formed into design teams in the spring of 2018, each proposing a different scheme responding to the same material and site demands. The winning proposal was selected by a design jury on May 1, 2018, and then was refined by students into a drawing set. The students then spent the summer trimming CLT panels at Yale’s West Campus and assembling the structure on site in New Haven’s Hill neighborhood. This year’s house is the second built in a five-year collaboration with Columbus House, and the two units will welcome two formerly homeless New Haven families.Save this picture!© Zelig Fok and Nicole DoanProject gallerySee allShow lessUmi-Play Children’s Dramatic Arts Center / AntiStatics ArchitectureSelected ProjectsHOOP Dance Gathering Place / Brook McIlroySelected Projects Share United States 2018 Jim Vlock First Year Building Project / Yale School of Architecture “COPY” Manufacturers: VELUX Commercial, Firestone Building Products, Kohler, Pella EFCO, Rich Brilliant Willing, SmartLam, Foxblock, New Haven Community Solar Projects CopyAbout this officeYale School of ArchitectureOfficeFollowProductWood#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesNew HavenUnited StatesPublished on December 13, 2018Cite: “2018 Jim Vlock First Year Building Project / Yale School of Architecture” 13 Dec 2018.

Can we object to a disciplinary companion?

first_imgQ An employee has made a request to bring a workplace companion along to a disciplinary hearing, but we think they are an unreasonable choice. Could we face any financial penalty if we don’t allow them in?AA workplace companion can be either: 1) a colleague; 2) a trade union representative; or 3) a union official (who is certified as competent). However, an employee’s choice must be reasonable for example, the individual cannot be involved in the dispute or as a material witness, or be expected to travel from a remote location.But if you refuse a workplace companion outright without good reason the employee could bring a tribunal claim against you. Their entitlement to be accompanied during a disciplinary hearing is a statutory right and an employee cannot be made to forego it. Where this happens, the maximum compensatory tribunal award is £760 (there is no minimum level). This figure is based on two weeks’ statutory pay at the current rate of £380 per week.last_img read more

Those who do remember history: Part 2

first_img 2SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblr by: Ken AglePart 2 of 2When it comes to compliance, sometimes knowing the “why” can make all the difference. In this two-part series, Ken Agle provides some background on how the gold standard, historical wars, economic development, and other events have impacted modern transaction limitations.In Part 1 of this series, Ken gave a brief overview of how the metal standards have played their role. In Part 2, he addresses how the reserve requirements factor into the equation and how the pieces fit together.Reserve Requirements Play Their RoleReserve requirements have long played a role in our nation’s financial system as movement away from gold standards evolved. When bank notes were first issued in the 19th century, few individuals outside the very narrow geographic area of the issuing bank would rely on those notes. Eventually arrangements between banks allowed for the expanded geographic use of bank notes, but largely on the basis that such banks maintained reserves sufficient to cover the amounts, thereby increasing their liquidity.With the Civil War came the first reserve requirements on a national bank for deposit accounts. The National Bank Acts of 1863 and 1864 provided the opportunity for national banks by creating a network of institutions whose notes could circulate more easily throughout the country.Reserve requirements were critical to ensuring the liquidity of the national bank notes and promoting them as a medium of exchange. It was only a matter of time that the role of deposits, enhanced by partial reserves, supplanted bank notes as the primary medium exchange for many transactions. continue reading »last_img read more

Wenger – We’re getting there

first_img Chile forward Alexis Sanchez took his tally to 10 goals with a double strike to finally break down Burnley’s resistance and send the Gunners on their way to a 3-0 victory at the Emirates Stadium. Following an indifferent spell, Arsenal have now won three matches in a row, and are unbeaten since losing at Chelsea before the international break. With the return of England international Theo Walcott, who made a late cameo after 10 months out with a serious knee injury, Wenger will soon have plenty of more attacking options. France forward Olivier Giroud is also set to be in contention following the next international break after recovering earlier than expected from a broken foot. “For Theo it must be great as well to see that everybody wants him to come on,” said Wenger, who could give Walcott another run out on Tuesday night in the Champions League against Anderlecht when midfielder Jack Wilshere is expected to be available again after a minor knee problem. “Lukas Podolski also played very well after he came on, he could have scored two. “When you think that we have not got a number of offensive players like Ozil, Wilshere and Giroud, there is a lot of competition in the forward positions.” While Wenger may feel his squad is now moving in the right direction, there remain more questions than answers for Burnley boss Sean Dyche. However, with home matches coming up against the likes of Hull, Aston Villa and Newcastle, spirits within the Clarets camp remain high that illusive first top-flight win will come sooner rather than later. “There has to be a future on what you do. You can’t rely on a lucky win, or another one because you are never going to improve and build a team,” said Dyche. “You have to build it by method and ours is reasonably sound, but we are coming up against teams who are of a higher level, and there is no negative in that.” Press Association Arsene Wenger feels Arsenal are slowly finding the right balance to kick-start their Barclays Premier League campaign. Wenger believes the way his team continued to stay positive, despite the frustrations of seeing Burnley goalkeeper Tom Heaton pull off a string of saves and the defenders make last-gasp blocks, has them moving in the right direction again. “In the recent games at home we were not patient and we have learned. We look a bit more balanced between offence and defence,” said manager Wenger, whose side are now fourth, above West Ham on goal difference, but still nine points off leaders Chelsea. “We were less in trouble when we lost the ball, we were serious and that is very important in the efficiency.” Key to Arsenal’s resurgence has been the impressive form of Sanchez, a £30million summer buy from Barcelona, who Wenger has deployed in a more central attacking role following injury to record-signing Mesut Ozil. Wenger is confident Sanchez can support the additional responsibility, having compared him and the Uruguayan former Liverpool striker Luis Suarez to tough South American “street footballers” in the build-up to Saturday’s match. “I was ready to give him time if he needed it, but he has settled in much quicker than expected,” the Arsenal boss said. “Now I play him through the middle and he has shown he can find the ball, he can dribble and he can go at you. “There are similarities with (Luis) Suarez a little bit by going at you, by being where you do not expect him to be in the box, and by having that huge desire to be at the end of things.” last_img read more

Real Madrid won 4-1. APCristiano Ronaldo soaked up the acclaim after his brace fired Real Madrid to a 4-1 Champions League final demolition of Juventus and capped his “spectacular” end to the season.Ronaldo led Madrid to their first La Liga and Champions League double since 1958 by scoring 16 goals in his last 10 games of a memorable campaign, even by his sky-high standards.ADVERTISEMENT “It has been an incredible end to the season by us. The players deserve it and so do I.”Madrid midfielder Toni Kroos was happy to let Ronaldo hog the spotlight, adding: “Everybody knows that Cristiano is very important. “As a team we played very well in the quarter-finals, the semi-finals and today, but you need a guy to score the goals and he did it again.”Best in the world Madrid have won the Champions League three times in the last four years and their French forward Karim Benzema said: “It’s amazing, to win one, then two, then three! “We’ve made history and, there you go, we’re the best team in the world — it’s fantastic. “I want to keep going like that and win lots of trophies. We live football for this and tonight we’re all delighted.”It was also a special evening for Madrid’s Gareth Bale, who saluted his team’s historic triumph as the Spanish giants became the first side to retain the trophy for 27 years.Bale has been hampered by ankle and calf injuries for much of the season, but the Wales forward was able to play a part in his hometown after coming on as a 77th minute replacement for Benzema.Madrid’s dominant display gives them a 12th Champions League title and makes them the first to win it in successive years since the great AC Milan side of 1989 and 1990.

K Srikkanth hails ‘fighter’ Yuvraj Singh as he answers critics with a majestic double hundred

first_imgCritics were up in arms the moment chairman of selector K Srikkanth and his panel decided to pick Yuvraj Singh for the ICC World T20 in August, arguing the call was based on emotion and not on cricketing logic.They felt that while the left-hander could be a part of any international team before being diagnosed with cancer, four months wasn’t enough time for him to regain match fitness – after going through rigorous therapy for a rare germ cell cancer – and be a part of Team India.Even well-wishers questioned the decision saying that only in India could such a selection happen and comparisons were drawn with teams like Australia and South Africa.Back then, Srikkanth and team had stayed silent. But not on Monday after Yuvraj hit a well-deserved double ton for North Zone against Central Zone in their Duleep Trophy semi-final.Ex-chairman of selectors Srikkanth hailed Yuvraj as a fighter and said that he had repaid the faith they had shown in him while picking him for the World T20 in Sri Lanka.”A lot of discussion was regarding his fitness and if we were being emotional by picking him just four months into his recovery from cancer. Not many supported our case, but deep within we always knew he is a champion cricketer and on Monday he proved that once again.”I am very happy for him and wish him further success. In a way, he has also justified us backing him and bringing him back into the national fold. He has repaid the faith we showed in him,” he told Mail Today. Srikkanth feels that Yuvraj is ready for the longer formats of the game and not just T20.”His knock in the Duleep Trophy proves that he has regained enough fitness to not only play the shortest format of the game – T20 – but also the longer versions. Even if it might be too early to consider him for Tests, he is definitely ready for the ODI format,” he said.Srikkanth found support from one of the current selectors who refused to be named. He too feels that Yuvraj’s double hundred is the best way that he could have answered his critics.”Yuvraj’s double ton not only shuts his critics up, but also augurs well for the future of Indian cricket. It once again proves that if you are determined and willing to go that extra mile to bounce back, even the Almighty takes your side,” he said.When asked if Yuvraj was ready to don national colours in the ODI format and ultimately the whites that every cricketer dreams of, he said: “As of now, he is definitely ready to go through the rigours of 50over cricket. Test cricket could still take a little bit of time, but with the dedication he has shown while training, I won’t be too surprised if he is back into the Test team sooner rather than later.”advertisementlast_img read more

On Nova Scotias historic Shubenacadie River a slowmotion showdown

first_imgFORT ELLIS, N.S. – On the muddy banks of Nova Scotia’s Shubenacadie River, Dorene Bernard is listening for sounds that will let her know the historic waterway is about to change direction.“The wind will pick up, and you’ll start hearing the water and waves coming,” the Mi’kmaq activist says as she walks through the tall grass, carrying a large fan made from an eagle’s wing.The Shubenacadie is a 72-kilometre tidal river that cuts through the middle of Nova Scotia and flows into the Bay of Fundy. But when the world’s highest tides rise in the bay, salt water flows up the river for almost half its length, creating a wave — or tidal bore — that pushes against the river’s current.It’s an unusual natural phenomenon that draws tourists from around the world. It has also helped support the Mi’kmaq for more than 13,000 years.“This is a major highway, a major artery for our people,” says Bernard, a social worker, academic and member of the Sipekne’katik First Nation in nearby Indian Brook, N.S.“Our ancestors are buried along here … It has a very significant historical, spiritual and cultural relevance to who we are.”Before the bore arrives, the river is like glass on this humid, windless day.However, Bernard is mindful that another change is coming for the river and her people.For the past 12 years, a Calgary-based company has been planning to pump water from the river to an underground site 12 kilometres away, where it will be used to flush out salt deposits, creating huge caverns that will eventually store natural gas.AltaGas says the leftover brine solution will be pumped into the river, twice a day at high tide, over a two- to three-year period.The initial plan is to create two caverns about a kilometre underground. But the company has said it may need as many as 15 caverns, which would be linked to the nearby Maritimes and Northeast natural gas pipeline, about 60 kilometres north of Halifax.The storage is needed by an AltaGas subsidiary, Heritage Gas, which sells natural gas in the Halifax area and a few other Nova Scotia communities. It says it wants to stockpile its product during the colder months to protect its customers from price shocks when demand spikes.Drilling for the first two caverns has been completed.After years of consultations, legal wrangling and scientific monitoring, the company’s Nova Scotia-based subsidiary, Alton Natural Gas Storage LP, has said it plans to start the brining process some time later this year.Bernard says her people are not going to let that happen.The $130-million project has been largely on hold since 2014 when Mi’kmaq activists started a series of protests that culminated two years later in the creation of a year-round protest camp at the work site northwest of Stewiacke.“We’re not going to let anyone destroy our water,” Bernard said in a recent interview, declining to elaborate on what will happen if police or security guards try to reclaim the site.“The impacts will be huge. You can’t just put something in your vein and think it’s not going to affect your whole body.”She says the company has consulted with Indigenous leaders, but she insists it has done a poor job of reaching out to the Mi’kmaq people, particularly those who are members of her First Nation.“There was never a public hearing with Alton Gas in our community. Never.”For its part, the company has insisted it has consulted with local Indigenous people, and the provincial government has agreed.More importantly, the company says it has already secured the permits it needs to start pumping water from the river.At the entrance to the protest camp off Riverside Road, a steel gate is covered in placards and a canvas lean-to. A sign that warns against trespassing — installed by the company with the help of the RCMP — has been covered with a blanket.In May of last year, protesters built a tiny, two-storey house out of straw bales and lime plaster. It has a dirt floor, wood stove, bunks and plenty of provisions inside.There’s also a garden. Chickens and geese roam the makeshift squatters camp.On this day, there are only three protesters — they call themselves water protectors — at the site. But some supporters from Halifax later drop by for a visit.“We have a lot of allies, settlers who are supporting this camp — it’s not just the Mi’kmaq,” says Ducie Howe, Bernard’s cousin and a resident of what she calls Shubenacadie Reserve No. 14, the original name for the nearby First Nation.“There’s people from all over who will come. And they’ll keep coming.”Howe says Nova Scotians need to be reminded that the company is operating on unceded Mi’kmaq territory.“We signed peace and friendship treaties,” she says. “We never signed treaties that gave up any part of our lands … Giving out permits? Those are illegal. They didn’t have the right to do that.”Closer to the river, there’s a smaller, flat-topped wooden building that Bernard describes as a truckhouse. The reference is to the 1752 Peace and Friendship Treaty, which states that the Mi’kmaq are free to build “truckhouses” along the river to facilitate trade.In the distance, a small hut for security guards sits empty.Company spokeswoman Lori Maclean says some protesters have been served with trespassing notices.“The company is aware of the activity of protesters at the site and continues to engage with law enforcement and the community,” she said in a recent email. “Alton sites are work areas that are open only to Alton staff or approved contractors.”Alton has received the environmental and industrial approvals it needs to proceed, including two environmental assessments and an independent third-party science review. However, provincial Environment Minister Margaret Miller has yet to make a decision about an appeal of the industrial approval filed by the Sipekne’katik First Nation.As for the brine that will be pumped into the river, the company says the peak release on each tidal cycle will be approximately 5,000 cubic metres, which will be mixed in with four million cubic metres of brackish tidal flow.The company says the brine flowing into the Minas Basin “would not be detectable and would be insignificant in terms of the natural fluctuation of salinity the ecosystem is subject to during each tidal cycle.”Alton Gas also says the intake pipe will not suck in fish or small organisms because the water will be filtered through a rock wall, and the intake flow will be low enough to allow all fish to swim away.“The requirements of our monitoring program with provincial and federal regulators will ensure that the brine will not impact the ecosystem,” the company’s website says.Before Bernard and Howe leave the river, the pair stand at the edge of the bank to make an offering through song.The lyrics are sung in the original Ojibwa and then in Mi’kmaq: “Water, I love you. I thank you. I respect you. Water is life.”last_img read more
