The project, situated in an urban plot of approximately 1000m2 with a steep slope and with a pre-existing building, consists on inserting a new dwelling. Both houses share common spaces within the same plot, but will be inhabited by two different owners. The current owner has 50 % of the plot and the pre-existing building, and our client is the owner of the other half of the plot and the right to build the new house. Both must agree on the architecture to live together without interference.Save this picture!© Aitor OrtizRecommended ProductsRenders / 3D AnimationAUGmentectureAugmented Reality Platform – AUGmentecture™Renders / 3D AnimationEnscape3D Real-Time Rendering SoftwareRenders / 3D AnimationVectorworksVectorworks ArchitectCoffee tablesBoConceptMadrid Coffee Table AD20The local plan states that the building must meet a two-family residential typology. Strictly this model assumes two houses within a single volume. Accepting this premise means attaching to the existing building, involving the views and the living space.Save this picture!© Aitor OrtizConsidering that both buildings should be understood as a unit for regulatory purposes, the strategy is to link them physically through a series of common elements consisting of a shared courtyard and the upper terraces.Save this picture!© Aitor OrtizThe proposal therefore focuses in the section. It redefines the different levels of the existing housing. The basement becomes ground level and so on. In this way, both buildings are framed within the allowed outline and a unitary piece.Save this picture!© Aitor OrtizUnder these conditions the new building is conceived as a piece adapted to the topography that somehow extends from the existing building, moving towards the end of the lot and descending to a lower level.Save this picture!Floor PlanThe house has a basement, ground floor and first floor. The first floor is materialized in a volume that emerges laterally on the ground of the roof of the existing dwelling. Between both houses there is no material distinction. A gap that distances both houses is created by a fold of the cover and its vegetable treatment, always allowing views over the open space.Save this picture!© Aitor OrtizThe floor of the building is organized around an interior courtyard which allows wide sights of the interior spaces. In this way, the dwelling opens to the outer space, and amplifies its size while maintaining a high degree of privacy. The dining and lounge areas turn, on the other hand, to the landscape.Save this picture!© Aitor OrtizThe architectural proposal negotiates an agreement between the two owners, and between them and the urban legislation, in which the proposal flexibly fits. The resulting architecture is the materialization of this agreement.Project gallerySee allShow lessHouse in Funabashi / Koji Hatano ArchitectsSelected ProjectsVideo: Tamedia New Office Building / Shigeru Ban ArchitectsVideos Share ArchDaily Year:  Projectslast_img read more

Overall sector income rises but smaller charities continue to struggle

first_img Advertisement Overall sector income rises but smaller charities continue to struggle AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis10 The charity sector saw a 5.8% rise in overall income in 2013/14, but while Britain’s biggest charities saw their income rise in 2013/14, smaller charities saw a decrease in real terms, according to NVCO statistics.Charities with an annual income of more than £10m saw growth, while overall income for smaller and medium-sized charities declined or stayed the same. Those in the £10m–£100m annual income category saw income grow by 3.7%, while those in categories below £1m all saw falls in their income.Charities in the £100,000-£1m category saw their income decrease by -0.7%, while those in the £10,000-£100,000 category saw a -1.7% drop, and those with an income of less than £10,000, saw a fall of -3.6%.The total income of those charities in the £100m+ category grew 26%, driven in part by increases in their income but also by an increase in the size of the category as a whole with a notable number of charities exceeding the £100m threshold for the first time.The figures are based on analysis of charities’ accounts as submitted to the Charity Commission, and highlight a continuing overall trend of larger charities increasing their income in recent years, while smaller charities have seen reductions.Overall incomeOverall income for the sector increased to £43.8bn in 2013/14, mainly as a result of increases in income from individuals. Spending also rose by 3.5% to £41.7bn. Earned income from individuals, including fees for services and fundraising earnings such as charity shop sales, was up 4.2% to £10bn, while donations were up 7.7% at £7.2bn. Total income from individuals grew to its highest level ever in real terms at £19.4bn, though donations remained below their 2010/11 peak.Income from government, largely in the form of contracts for running public services, also rose by 3.5% to £15bn, but remained below its 2007/8 to 2011/12 level. Most of the rise in government income went to the largest of charities with incomes over £100m a year. This was driven in particular by a number of very large contracts with or grants to charities in this category. However, government grants to the sector, at £2.8bn, were less than half their level ten years prior in 2003/4.Sir Stuart Etherington, chief executive of NCVO, said:“Charities of all sizes make an immense difference to our society and our world every day. We should be pleased that some of Britain’s most well-known and influential charities are continuing to grow and thrive. However, these figures do underline our concern that small and medium-sized charities are struggling in particular at the moment. We all need to focus on what more can be done to support those good organisations which are nevertheless continuing to struggle in the current climate.”  66 total views,  2 views today AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis10 Melanie May | 14 April 2016 | News About Melanie May Melanie May is a journalist and copywriter specialising in writing both for and about the charity and marketing services sectors since 2001.

Enjoy a Steak; It’s Beef Month!

first_img Facebook Twitter Home Indiana Agriculture News Enjoy a Steak; It’s Beef Month! May is Beef MonthThe month of May in Indiana means racing at the world’s most famous track, but here and across the country it is also Beef Month. Hoosier beef producers encourage you to celebrate.“I think that everyone needs to fire up the grill and pick their favorite steak and put that thing on the grill tonight. That would be a great way of celebrating,” said Joe Moore, Executive Vice President of the Indiana Beef Cattle Association. He tells HAT May is an important seasonal kickoff for the beef industry.“Beef is, I always call it a seasonal commodity. During the winter we sell roasts and during the summer we sell steaks, and our summer grilling season actually officially kicks off Memorial Day weekend. So it’s huge for us.”Moore says cattlemen and women are producers of a nutritional powerhouse.“Beef is the number one source for protein, zinc and vitamin B12 in the United States,” he said. “Comparatively speaking a 3-ounce portion of lean beef is about 154 calories, and to get the same amount of zinc you would have to eat about 2,300 worth of salmon. To get the same amount of B12 you would have to eat over 1,000 calories worth of chicken breasts. To get the same 25 grams of protein you’d have to eat almost 700 calories worth of peanut butter, or 400 calories worth of black beans.”In Indiana the beef industry is on the smaller side compared to other commodities. Moore says smaller, but not insignificant.“We have over 17,000 premises registered with the Board of Animal Health as having beef cattle on them, in the state. There’s over 800,000 head of cattle in the state of Indiana,” he added, “and that includes dairy as well.”Beef is not only the nutritional powerhouse, but as with all of agriculture, it’s good for Indiana’s economy. Thousands of people play a role in bringing beef from pasture toPlate, from the actual cattle producers to feed and equipment dealers and food marketers.Moore adds, “We are fortunate in Indiana to have such outstanding beef producers and allied industry partners who work together to provide the safest and highest quality beef products available anywhere for the consumer.” SHARE By Andy Eubank – May 3, 2017 Enjoy a Steak; It’s Beef Month!

Delayed discharges cost UHL €5.5 million since 2016

first_imgUpdated statement on service disruptions UL Hospitals Group University Hospital LimerickSINN Féin TD Maurice Quinlivan has called out the HSE and the Minister for Health for their “failure” to tackle delayed discharges at University Hospital Limerick (UHL), costing the hospital more than €5.5 million since 2016.According to the Limerick politician, delayed discharge patients are clinically fit for discharge from an acute bed, but because of a lack of home help or a nursing home bed they can’t be discharged.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up “This practice constitutes one of the biggest financial wastes in the health service and has cost the health service nearly €600 million since 2016,” Deputy Quinlivan commented.“Hundreds of millions is being wasted unnecessarily by keeping these patients in acute hospital beds. Delayed discharges also keep sick patients out of beds and further delays care, is a contributory factor to Emergency Department overcrowding, it adversely affects patient flow throughout the hospital, and it is incredibly unfair on the patients who are ready to be discharged.”Deputy Quinlivan went on to claim that since the beginning of 2017, 6,466 bed days have been lost in University Hospital Limerick due to delayed discharges, costing the hospital €5,546,556. “So far this year 2,060 bed days have been lost in University Hospital Limerick due to delayed discharges. It costs the health service €878 to run a hospital bed per day, so these bed days have cost University Hospital Limerick over €1.8 million so far this year, just to keep patients in beds who are ready to go home.“This has been going on for years, last year, when the cost of a hospital bed per day was €856 per day, 2,426 bed days were lost, meaning the it cost UHL over €2 million. This state of affairs makes the HSE penny-wise and pound-foolish policy of freezing home help hours even more bizarre. Simon Harris and Paul Reid should be focusing on tackling this issue which costs the HSE close to €200 million each year,” he concluded.A response from UL Hospitals Group stated that longstanding and ongoing collaboration between acute and community sectors continues to ensure that the Mid-West performs well in terms of delayed discharges.“In absolute terms and per head of population, patients in the Mid-West are less likely than anywhere else in the country to experience a delayed discharge from hospital. Any reasonable analysis of the national data demonstrates this. At any point in time over the period in question, University Hospital Limerick accounts for approximately one per cent of the total bed days lost through delayed discharges in the country.” Twitter TAGShealthLimerick City and CountyNewsUHLuniversity hospital limerick 64 patients waiting for beds in UHL Advertisement Print 53 patients waiting for beds at UHL Email Linkedincenter_img Previous articleSix promising graduate dancers’ public premiereNext articleBig apprenticeship take-up in Limerick Alan Jacques RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR NewsHealthDelayed discharges cost UHL €5.5 million since 2016By Alan Jacques – August 17, 2019 122 Facebook Limerick Post Show | Careers & Health Sciences Event for TY Students WhatsApp “There is extreme overcrowding in UHL this morning” – UHL Numbers of Limerick hospital group staff sidelined by COVID-19 reduces by 162 in past 7 dayslast_img read more

Making a perfect match

first_img Previous Article Next Article Case study: Matching candidates with suitable employers can now take lesstime and effort as intelligent candidate matching software makes its markAs the worldwide leader in the staffing industry, Manpower providesemployment to more than 2.7 million people annually through 3,800 offices in 59countries – which adds up to a lot of skillsets and CVs being matched to a lotof different positions. Given the volumes it deals with, Manpower looked into the concept ofintelligent candidate matching software. While there would be obvious speedbenefits, its overriding criteria was to find a technology that replicated thedecision-making process of the human brain and ensure that a precise fit wasmade between candidate and employer. In January this year, Manpower rolled out the pilot phase of acandidate-to-vacancy matching system called Ijen, developed by UK companyNCorp. “We were benchmarking systems and this one came out the best,”says Jorg Stehr, IT director EMEA at Manpower. “To match our employees tothe job orders we need to find the best possible fit and this is based on anumber of parameters, including skills and experience, location, employers’preference and preferences of employees. The system applies artificialintelligence (AI) to the job-matching process and takes in all of theseparameters and more.” Criticisms that a computer is replacing the touchy-feely side of recruitmentare refuted by Stehr who says that, if anything, it enhances the face-to-facetime a branch representative can spend with the client. “Now that they don’t have to do the searches, there is more time forpersonal interaction,” he says. The Ijen technology is based on 10 years’ work by Cambridge Universityresearchers and replicates the ability of the human brain to recognise closelymatching items based on large numbers of parameters. Although this is the firsttime this has been used in the HR sector, it has been tried and tested in thee-commerce sector and is used by such high-profile sites as,Autotrader and EG (Estates Gazette) Property. “We saw there were applications for the HR sector and that it waswell-suited to recruitment,” says NCorp chief executive Nick Bidmead.”The way we’ve built it means that the core technology can be used indifferent ways by various customers, including job boards, for instance. Thisenables Manpower’s consultants to maximise the potential of its entiredatabase, while simultaneously improving the quality of matches is somethingthat traditional structured query language (SQL) searching cannotdeliver.” The system can deliver matches across a database of thousands of CVs infractions of seconds says Bidmead. “We know from our work with sites suchas Autotrader that people don’t want to wait, so it has to be that fast.” The technology can also carry out Skills Gap Analysis that identifies whichskills are in short supply and equally those that are in demand. So far, the pilot has been rolled out in the Netherlands, Germany andDenmark (with operations planned for other European countries, the Middle East,Africa and Asia) and feedback has been extremely positive from the Manpowerstaff using it, claims Stehr. “Staff like the fact that it is web-based.Our previous system was client/server based. The current system is much easierto configure. We are providing web-based training over two to three days andstaff can interact with someone who has used the system before.” Stehr led the steering committee on the project, which also includes HRoperations staff from across Europe as well as representatives from the financedepartment and EMEA managing director Yoav Michaely. The company has a closerelationship between HR operations and IT, Stehr says. “We have almost 100per cent alignment. We have to, because, in effect, the system is ourproduction line. I know that isn’t a very HR term, but it is vital to ourbusiness.” The Ijen system is also going to be instrumental in the organisation’sincreasing need to meet cross-border requirements from clients. Manpower hasset up Cross-Border Connections to cater for these and reports not only anincrease in companies looking for staff in other countries, but also foremployees wanting to find work in other countries. “In future, it willalso support cross-border matching,” Stehr says.

Thales to Supply Sonobuoy Processors for Romanian Navy’s Helicopters

first_img View post tag: Defence View post tag: Naval View post tag: Romanian Romanian helicopter manufacturer IAR Brasov has chosen Thales to supply TMS 2000 sonobuoy processors to equip IAR-330 Pumahelicopters operated by the Romanian Navy.The processors will give the Romanian Navy a decisive anti-submarine warfare (ASW) capability to detect submarines in the Black Sea, in particular as part of NATO missions.TMS 2000 processors offer a rapidly deployable ASW capability, with installation requiring only minor modifications to the aircraft. Sonobuoys are released over the sea by a fixed- or rotary-wing aircraft and send acoustic data to the processor via a VHF link. The VHF receiver on the aircraft receives and processes the data in real time.With the TMS 2000 system, Thales offers a solution that is both cost-effective and highly efficient in operational terms. It is quick and easy to install and delivers excellent signal processing performance and display quality. Overall, the TMS 2000 represents an ideal solution for navies that need to quickly acquire an ASW capability.Thales offers proven sonobuoy processors for maritime patrol aircraft as well as helicopters of all sizes. The operational performance of sonobuoys has improved rapidly in recent years, making them an increasingly serious threat to any submarine seeking to avoid detection.With a large number of systems already in service, Thales is a leading player in sonobuoy processors and is maintaining a significant level of investment in order to ensure client navies benefit from the very latest systems and technologies.The TMS 2000 processor is one of the most advanced currently available on the market and equips NH90 helicopters operated by the French, Norwegian and Swedish Navies as well as the Royal Navy’s EH101 Merlins.[mappress]Press Release, June 17, 2013; Image: Thales Thales to Supply Sonobuoy Processors for Romanian Navy’s Helicopters View post tag: processors View post tag: Navy’s View post tag: Supply View post tag: Helicopters June 17, 2013center_img View post tag: Defense View post tag: News by topic Equipment & technology View post tag: Thales View post tag: Sonobuoy Back to overview,Home naval-today Thales to Supply Sonobuoy Processors for Romanian Navy’s Helicopters View post tag: Navy Share this articlelast_img read more
