The principal, Dolly Lin, and the team only retained its original structure and re-constructed all other parts, and transformed the house into a project that integrates modern technology. Save this picture!Courtesy of DL Design/TL Architects & Associates/HY KOThere is a famous Chinese idiom “yīn dì zhì yí” which means to apply appropriated methods according to the surrounding conditions. The humidity and coldness in the mountain were the main challenge while designing the house. The design team applied and considered modern construction techniques and sustainable methods during the design process. The house was designed as an experimental project to sustain in the unpredictable mountain weather. To use and construct double walls, double paned windows and an additional underground level is an insulation to isolate the damp and freeze from the ground earth in cold seasons. There is daylight and ventilation function by opening windows, so the house doesn’t need any artificial lighting during daytime before 5pm. The skylight also permits light and fresh air into indoor for natural air circulation. Energy conservation is one of the main concepts during the design process.Save this picture!Courtesy of DL Design/TL Architects & Associates/HY KOThe exterior stone panel pattern provides an illusion of vertical extension. On the ground floor, Dining room and living room have floor to ceiling height openings to blur the boundary between interior and exterior spaces. The staircase is the core circulation of the house which connects three levels. Sun light from skylight to staircase is playing shadow during daytime. The top floor is a multi-function room that provides a great view of the mountain nature.Save this picture!First Floor PlanProject gallerySee allShow lessVideo: IKEA Foundation Design a Shelter for RefugeesVideosBristol Hospital Competition FinalistsArchitecture News Share Architects: DL Design/TL Architects & Associates Area Area of this architecture project Year:  Projects ArchDaily Re-born House / DL Design/TL Architects & Associates “COPY” CopyAbout this officeDL Design/TL Architects & AssociatesOfficeFollowProductsWoodGlassConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesWoodTaipeiHousesTaiwan (ROC)Published on July 03, 2013Cite: “Re-born House / DL Design/TL Architects & Associates” 03 Jul 2013.

Australia Coal Advocates Bank on Unlikely Demand From India

first_img FacebookTwitterLinkedInEmailPrint分享Daniel Hurst for The Guardian:Australia’s resources minister has predicted India’s demand for coal will increase, even as some analysts warned him against relying on “overly bullish” forecasts.In a speech in Canberra, Josh Frydenberg said China – which is undergoing an economic transition – was “not the only game in town” and strong economic growth in India would drive increased demand for Australian resources.India is seeking to increase its own domestic coal production and also boost its reliance on renewable energy. Frydenberg acknowledged global demand for coal would fall as a percentage of the overall energy mix from 40% now to 30% in 2040, but said India would become the largest coal importer in the world by 2020.Frydenberg said absolute demand for energy in Asia was rising because of dramatic increases in population, urbanisation and a rising middle class.“The reality is that there will be significant demand for our energy and minerals going forward and this forms the basis for long-term optimism for these sectors of Australian industry,” he told the National Press Club on Tuesday.“Consider this: today India has 18% of the world’s population but represents only 6% of global energy use.”Last week, Frydenberg met with the Indian minister for coal, power and renewable energy, Piyush Goyal, who has previously suggested the country could stop importing thermal coal by 2017 except to supply coastal plants.When asked on Tuesday to reconcile India’s ambitious target with his own rosy outlook, Frydenberg said there was a “real market for Australian coal, which is low in sulphur, low in ash”. He said when considered alongside “still evolving” carbon capture and storage technology, “the picture for coal is not one-sided”.“When it comes to India, Goyal has made very clear that they still will need to import coal, they are looking for clean coal, or cleaner, that Australia has an important part to play,” Frydenberg said.“We export $5bn worth of coal annually to them. It is their real key form of baseload power. They are investing in renewables, and that’s a fantastic story, but if they are going to expand the grid, the way to do that, he made it very clear, is coal and Australian coal has a role to play.“I got the clarification that he will need Australian coal for some time to come.”Pressed on whether that demand would increase, Frydenberg said: “Based on the arithmetic I have seen, I think it will.”But Tim Buckley, the director of energy finance studies at the pro-renewables Institute for Energy Economics and Financial Analysis, urged the government to tread cautiously.“Josh Frydenberg’s general disposition is very bullish for Australian coal but several of his points are factually inconsistent with the existing data,” said Buckley, a financial markets expert.“For example, he doesn’t clarify the distinction between India’s increasing reliance on coking coal imports versus the declining Indian reliance on imported thermal coal, which is down 15% year on year.”Buckley said while four-fifths of India’s coal usage comprised thermal coal, or the type used in power plants, just 20% comprised coking coal, or the type used in steel production. This meant that coal imports were likely to experience an overall decline, with India aiming to double its domestic thermal coal production by 2020.“Energy minister Goyal has made it very clear his top priorities are driving improvement in grid efficiency, energy efficiency, solar, wind, hydo capacity expansions and a diversification away from coal over time,” Buckley said.Full article: Josh Frydenberg says India’s demand for Australian coal will increase Australia Coal Advocates Bank on Unlikely Demand From Indialast_img read more

WHO seeks urgent push for pandemic flu vaccines

first_imgOct 23, 2006 (CIDRAP News) –Warning that the world is billions of doses short of the amount of vaccine needed to prepare for an influenza pandemic, the World Health Organization (WHO) today called for an urgent and coordinated international effort to make up the deficit.The agency recommended an immediate campaign to boost vaccine production capacity and develop vaccines that would provide broader and more durable protection—while cautioning that such efforts will not bear fruit for another 3 to 5 years.”We are presently several billion doses short of the amount of pandemic influenza vaccine we would need to protect the global population,” Dr. Marie-Paule Kieny, director of the WHO Initiative for Vaccine Research, said in a news release. “This could lead to a public health crisis.””Importantly, none of the strategies will be able to fill the gap in the immediate short term but, if action is taken now, should bear fruit within a future time frame of three to five years,” states the official summary of the WHO’s “Global pandemic influenza action plan to increase vaccine supply.”The report is the product of a meeting of 120 experts in Geneva in May.The WHO estimates the cost of the needed initiatives at US $3 billion to $10 billion.The world’s current production capacity for seasonal flu vaccine is estimated at 350 million doses a year, which could perhaps be pushed to 500 million doses with round-the-clock operation (each dose containing 15 micrograms of antigen for each of three flu strains), the report says.  Current expansion plans are expected to add another 280 million doses of annual capacity over the next 2 to 3 years, pushing the total to a maximum of 780 million doses.Under the most optimistic assumptions, if all facilities converted to making a single-strain pandemic flu vaccine, maximum world capacity by 2008 or 2009 would be about 2.34 billion doses, the report says. Given a world population of 6.7 billion, this would fall several billion doses short of the expected demand in a pandemic, it states.Further, it says that current egg-based production methods don’t work nearly as well for H5N1 flu vaccines as they do for seasonal flu vaccines. As a result, the current maximum capacity to make H5N1 vaccine is only about 500 million (single-strain) doses a year. Because each person would probably need two doses, only 250 million people could be fully vaccinated in a year.The WHO lays out three main steps for closing the vaccine supply gap:Increase use of seasonal flu vaccine to stimulate industry to produce more (while protecting more people from seasonal flu)Increase vaccine production capacity by improving yields and building new plantsIncrease research to (1) develop better vaccines that provide more protection with fewer doses and (2) produce vaccines faster and more efficientlyThe most direct way to improve production capacity is to increase the production yield and immunogenicity of H5N-based vaccines, the report says. The WHO hopes to improve coordination of efforts in this area by “creating a collaborative consortium of laboratories with the objective of developing better candidate prototype vaccine strains.”The plan lists various possibilities for building new vaccine production facilities, including transferring egg-based or cell-culture production to potential new manufacturers and partially converting veterinary vaccine production facilities to produce human flu vaccines.The report says various strategies may help increase production yields. Several candidate vaccines containing adjuvants—chemicals that stimulate the immune system—will be tested over the next 2 years, but funding will be needed to accelerate the systematic evaluation of the formulations under development, the WHO says.The agency also calls for more research on live attenuated flu vaccines, saying they may be more effective than inactivated vaccines, cost less to produce, and have higher yields. The plan also advocates further assessment of killed, whole-virus vaccines and of administering vaccines intradermally rather than intramuscularly.The WHO estimates the cost of all the strategies for boosting vaccine yields and production capacity at anywhere from $2 billion to $9 billion.Concerning the quest for better vaccines, the report says the ideal vaccine is one that is safe and effective in all target groups with a single dose, is easily produced on a large scale, is thermostable, provides protection for at least a year, and protects against “antigenically drifted” flu strains.The report recommends a number of approaches for developing better vaccines:Evaluate new adjuvantsAssess the molecular basis for the immunogenicity of hemagglutinin, one of the two surface proteins on flu virusesDevelop new-generation vaccines, such as ones that target viral proteins other than hemagglutininDetermine the potential benefits of giving a pre-pandemic vaccine to prime the immune system to respond to later vaccination with a pandemic vaccine.The plan also advocates standardizing protocols for evaluating new vaccine candidates and defining immune responses in lab animals that correlate with protection in humans.See also:Oct 23 WHO news releasehttp://www.who.int/mediacentre/news/releases/2006/pr58/en/index.htmlWHO reporthttp://www.who.int/csr/resources/publications/influenza/CDS_EPR_GIP_2006_1.pdflast_img read more

Wisconsin hopes for better end to 2009-10

first_imgJunior guard Alyssa Karel and the Wisconsin Badgers will look to avoid another late-season collapse after a strong start to the Big Ten season.[/media-credit]Now that everyone’s finally grown accustomed to dating their checks 2010 instead of 2009, it’s a good time to peer back a calendar year and evaluate, for, as George Santayana famously said, “Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it.”And if the clock is flipped back to January 2009 for the Wisconsin women’s basketball team, one will discover an identical 13-4 mark heading into the team’s 18th game and the heart of Big Ten conference play.One also will discover that at that juncture in the ’08-’09 season, the team began a slide that saw them lose eight of their next 10 contests, including a five-game losing streak that essentially dashed any NCAA tournament hopes.So, considering this time around’s the cast of characters — with five returning starters, only two lost letterwinners and just three freshmen — is mostly the same, how does the team prevent duplicating the ’09 mid-January slump?“We have a different mentality this year,” Rae Lin D’Alie, the team’s senior point guard and leader in assists and steals, said. “This year, we understand what needs to be done to win. And we knew it last year, but this year we understand it — it’s a totally different thing.“You can know a lot of things but when you really understand them, it’s a different story because you’re willing to put in the work; you’re willing to put in what needs to be done in order to get those wins.”“[Last year’s collapse] has come up in conversations, but I think this year we just need to be more mentally tough,” Teah Gant, D’Alie’s lone fellow senior and a team tri-captain, said. “I think that’s what we lacked last year is we’d get through an hour of practice and be mentally drained and not into it. So that’s definitely one thing we’ve been focusing on this year.”Although the squad has produced a similar start to both of the past two seasons, the differences in how the 13-4 records were reached are crucial.Statistically speaking, head coach Lisa Stone’s team has gotten better across the board by shooting the ball better at the free throw line, from distance and from the field; rebounding at a higher rate; and, most importantly, improving in scoring and scoring defense.Moreover, the 2009 team did not feature freshman sensation Taylor Wurtz, who is fifth on the team in scoring and fourth in rebounding.While the majority of the current roster was around to experience last year’s travails and learn from them, the team would do well to focus last year’s slide, if only to remind them of the rigors of Big Ten play.“It’s just a totally different season,” Gant said. “Everyone wants to be at the top of their league and end their season on a good note and get into the NCAA tournament, so that becomes more of a focus as it comes down to conference play.“It’s just a lot more physical, a lot more mental. … In the beginning of the season, everybody’s really excited to play and get some games under their belts, but when it gets down toward the end, it comes down to the mental aspect and just staying focused the entire time.”It also is notable that with five road tests remaining before the team enters tournament play, , last year’s team limped to a 1-8 road conference mark. Thus far, three of the Badgers’ four losses have occurred away from the Kohl Center’s friendly confines.“Everybody would much rather play at home,” D’Alie said. “For us, though, we get caught up in that sometimes. We get caught up in who’s winning what and what’s our record and what’s our record on the road — where we’re best when we just play basketball, when we just play together.“I think the more we can take the focus off that and the more we can focus on ourselves and reaching our max potential then [the rest] will just fall right in.”And the rest will be history — whether or not a repeat is up to them.last_img read more

Giants pitcher Sam Coonrod is opposing Black Lives Matter in bad faith

first_imgWhich, as he showed Thursday, is on the opposite side of a lot of people in the sport. MORE: Betts alone on Dodgers in taking a knee during anthemThe second-year Giants pitcher refused to bend the knee prior to his team’s season opener vs. the rival Dodgers. He towered above the rest of the uniformed personnel before the national anthem as they demonstrated for racial justice and against police brutality. A few stayed grounded for the anthem, most notably Dodgers outfielder Mookie Betts. Some of Coonrod’s mates did, too. Coonrod stayed upright the entire time.After the game, an 8-1 Giants loss in which he did not pitch, Coonrod gave reporters three explanations why he stayed rooted to the foul line: 1. Not enough advance notice. He said he didn’t have adequate time to talk it over with his teammates.2. His Christian faith, which he said prohibits him from kneeling before anything (or anyone) but God and Jesus. “I feel that if I did kneel, I would be being a hypocrite. I didn’t want to be a hypocrite. Like I said, I didn’t mean any ill will toward anyone,” Coonrod said, per Alex Pavlovic of NBC Sports Bay Area. He said he doesn’t get upset with people who kneel. 3. His wariness of Black Lives Matter. “I just can’t get on board with a couple of things that I have read about Black Lives Matter,” he said (again, per Pavlovic). “How they lean towards Marxism and they’ve said some negative things about the nuclear family. I just can’t get on board with that.”The first explanation should be dismissed out of hand. Coonrod showed that no amount of lead time would have changed his actions. He knew what was coming, and he still stood resolute. Give him credit for that, at least. Would he have retreated to the clubhouse or bullpen had he been given a few more hours to think about it? Seems doubtful.Coonrod might be on better footing with his basing his stance on religious grounds. But it’s still difficult to follow how taking a principled stand by not standing could make a person of faith two-faced. If Coonrod kneels only for God, then he can pray silently for an end to police abuses and foul treatment of people based on assumptions about skin color. He could be up front about it, too. “I don’t think kneeling is proper in the context of secular protests; I will show my solidarity by kneeling for the right reasons,” he could say.That would leave Coonrod just not wanting to look like a hypocrite when it comes to BLM. He agrees with the facile notion that people who march under its flag are anti-American anarchists who are backed by shadowy fellow traitors. He’s using his faith as a shield in front of one of his faces — the uncharitable one. If he kneels, then he’s giving his tacit approval of the movement. It’s not clear whether he wore the “Black Lives Matter” T-shirts that were distributed to uniformed personnel.Bruce Maxwell is noticing all this. Ian Desmond is, too. Andrew McCutchen, the man who came up with the idea of the black ribbon, might be taking a few notes himself.Giants manager Gabe Kapler said Friday (per the San Francisco Chronicle) that Coonrod will address his teammates, but it’s not known whether the pitcher has spoken yet with outfielder Jaylin Davis, the team’s lone Black American player and a social justice advocate. Sam Coonrod stood alone Thursday night. Stood up for his beliefs. Stood against MLB’s newfound attention to contemporary issues of race in the United States.That reads like an endorsement of what Coonrod did, doesn’t it? It isn’t, so pardon me for not being as crystal clear as Coonrod was about where he stands on baseball’s social justice efforts.center_img Coonrod said that people ought to respect his stance. They absolutely should, if it’s earned. The best way he can do that is to be authentic about his beliefs on BLM.He needs to say whenever he gets the chance that Black lives do matter, but that he can’t support the organization’s full agenda, and he needs to be more specific about why. Saying “a couple of things I have read” is lazy and unpersuasive.Otherwise, his bringing religion into it is a convenient copout. He needs to wear his belief like a cross he wants to bear. He shouldn’t be hiding behind one.last_img read more

Bob and Doug Dock Dragon at ISS Live

first_imgDragon Endeavour has completed the first half of her round trip mission to the space station. Spacecraft Commander Doug Hurley and Joint Operations Commander Bob Behnken have “Captured the Flag” as the first crew to reach the ISS from the United States since the last Space Shuttle mission in 2011.Endeavour lifted off on a Falcon 9 rocket Saturday, leaving LC-39A at the Kennedy Space Center in Florida at 3:22 PM EDT (19:22 UTC). After a flawless ride uphill, Endeavour separated from Falcon 9’s second stage and opened its nosecone. This exposed the spacecraft’s docking port as well as an array of Draco maneuvering thrusters, and began the nineteen hours of tests and maneuvers to rendezvous with the ISS.last_img

Chris Pugh Voted Western Indoor Soccer League Player of the Week

first_imgFacebook63Tweet0Pin0Submitted by Oly Town ArtesiansOly Town Artesians forward Chris Pugh has been honored by Western Indoor Soccer League club coaches and operators as the Offensive Player Of The Week for his hat trick on Saturday night against the Oly-Pen Force.Pugh, a North Thurston High School and Evergreen State alum, scored three times in the third and fourth quarters, sparking a run that cut a 7-1 Oly-Pen Force lead to just two goals, 8-6, early in the fourth. It was a hard-fought game by Pugh and both sides that saw the momentum shift massively twice over the course of just five minutes, and the Force eventually pulled away to register a 12-7 victory.The 38 year-old has been with the Artesians since the 2015-2016 season, but only played in six games over the past two seasons due to injuries and other commitments. This season, he has played in seven of nine games and has scored seven goals. But most importantly, he brings solid, veteran leadership to a young and inexperienced squad that has struggled on the field. He does all that while being a father to two young children and working his day job with the State of Washington’s Department of Natural Resources.Also honored by the WISL for Defensive Player Of The Week were two more Evergreen State College alums, Tacoma Stars Reserves’ Jeff Bader and Oly-Pen Force’s Greg Wolfe. Wolfe was an Original Artesian, playing in 16 games over two seasons before moving to Seattle. He scored twice, made five blocks and drew the key penalty that smashed the Oly Town comeback bid on Saturday. This is his first season back in the WISL since the 2015-2016 season.Pugh and the Oly Town Artesians wrap up the regular season this Saturday night when they face Bellingham United at The Pavilion at The Evergreen State College. It’s Fan Appreciation Night, with games, prizes, giveaways and more all evening long. First kick is at 6:30 PM. The following week join us for a postseason friendly against the Oly Legends on Austin Kelley Night, an annual event to honor friend and teammate Austin Kelley. First kick for AK Night sponsored by HDR Inc. is also set for 6:30. Stay up to date with the Artesians by visiting the Oly Town Artesians website, following them on Twitter, and liking them on Facebook.last_img read more
