The program for this house for two sisters and their families was relatively clear. They wanted the house in bright tones with a simple exterior design; desired an outdoor space that received good sunlight; and wished to build with wood.Save this picture!© Hwang hyochelSave this picture!SectionThe most difficult aspect about this project was that three parking spots had to be secured on a small plot of land. We first created a simple exterior volume and then from within drew out the interior space.Save this picture!© Hwang hyochelSave this picture!Floor PlanWhile one of the houses followed the shape of the exterior design, the other house took the form of a hidden terrace house within the outer house. Then, to resolve the parking lot problem, we elevated one of the houses. We created a steel skeleton frame for the ground floor and a parking lot, placing a three-story house on top. Size-wise, it became a four-story wooden building. We had to locate a structural design firm that works with wood structures, which is relatively rare in Korea. We also took great pains to consider the detail of the different contraction and expansion coefficients of steel frames and wood jointers. The Dongtan House is a four-story wooden residential home with different spatial structures within one volume.Save this picture!© Hwang hyochelSave this picture!SectionProject gallerySee allShow lessAn Old Breton Barn Converted into an Artist Studio / Modal ArchitectureSelected ProjectsArchiculture Interviews: Ted LandsmarkVideos Share 2014 Year: ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/603588/dongtan-house-jya-rchitects Clipboard Structure: Houses Save this picture!© Hwang hyochel+ 38 Share South Korea Dongtan House / JYA-RCHITECTSSave this projectSaveDongtan House / JYA-RCHITECTS CopyAbout this officeJYA-RCHITECTSOfficeFollowProductsWoodSteelBrick#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesHwaseong-siKoreaRepublic ofHousesWoodSouth KoreaPublished on March 02, 2015Cite: “Dongtan House / JYA-RCHITECTS” 01 Mar 2015.

FacebookTwitterLinkedInEmailPrint分享Jessica Shankleman for Bloomberg News:One of Europe’s most promising markets for renewable energy is being threatened by legislation that would impose new fees and potential jail terms for operators of wind farms, an industry lobby group said.Poland’s governing Law and Justice Party is proposing laws that would require new turbines to be situated away from homes, schools and natural reserves at a distance of more than 10-times their height. That would be about 1.5 kilometers (0.9 miles), according to data compiled by Bloomberg New Energy Finance. The law also would subject existing wind farms to audits every two years.The law would raise annual wind farm costs by as much as 150 million zloty ($37.6 million) even if no more turbines were built, according to the draft legislation. While the government is attempting to clamp down on rising electricity bills and empower communities concerned about the installations, the wind industry says the rules would choke off development and eliminate a clean source of electricity.Poland’s plans “will tie projects up in red tape and make life difficult for developers by imposing arbitrary rules that serve no other purpose than to prevent wind turbine deployment,” said Oliver Joy, a spokesman for the European Wind Energy Association. “This draft law is a clear statement of intent and should not be allowed to stand.”The government says it’s worried a surge in new installations is creating a conflict between communities and investors. It’s also seeking to curb subsidies for renewables and support its ailing coal industry, which has been undercut by falling commodity prices. While the country was among more than 195 nations that backed the Paris deal on climate change in December, it has sought a special status for coal and forecasts the fossil fuel will form a key component of its energy security for decades.Piotr Naimski, the Polish government official in charge of supervising gas and power grids, said Thursday the country needs to adopt a strategy of letting renewables compete with coal-fired plants without subsidies. He wants to change the current merit system that gives wind power priority over coal generation, according to an interview with Biznesalert.pl.Poland’s energy ministry declined to comment on the draft law.Poland, Europe’s top coal producer, notched up the continent’s second-highest number of wind-power installations last year. Developers rushed to install 1.26 gigawatts of new capacity ahead of expected changes to government subsidies, that will require developers to bid in auctions for support. The country now has 5.1 gigawatts of installed wind capacity, equivalent to about 9 percent of the installed base in neighboring Germany.“Poland has excellent wind resources and has the potential to be a European power house in wind energy,” The threat to imprison turbine operators for violating potential rules is “deeply concerning and misguided,” Joy said.Concerning for the wind lobby group are rules embedded in the legislation that would require wind farm owners to pay fees for operating plants and sign up for a new permit every two years. Those who fail to comply might face prison sentences, and the rules would be applied retroactively to existing plants, said Joy.Instead of imposing tough restrictions, the government may find ways to boost the benefits that communities enjoy from wind power, including opportunities to co-invest, said David Hostert, an analyst at Bloomberg New Energy Finance.“There are also a host of technical solutions available today to limit the impact of wind turbines, such as noise-reduction technology or automatically stopping the turbine at certain times of day to avoid flickering shadows on nearby properties,” he said.Wind Farms Now Come With the Threat of Jail Bloomberg: In Poland, ‘Wind Farms Now Come With the Threat of Jail’

Former Finn Harps and Derry City player Stephen McLaughlin is confident he has done enough to merit a place in Phil Brown’s starting XI for Southend’s play-off final with Wycombe at Wembley. McLaughlin had started the first-leg of their semi-final play-off win against Stevenage but was dropped for the return leg.However, McLaughlin’s introduction changed the game and turned the tide in favour of Southend. McLaughlin created the equalising goal and then scored the crucial second in extra-time before Southend sealed it deep into injury-time.In an interview with Soccer Republic on RTE McLaughlin is confident he will start the play-off final at Wembley later this month.McLaughlin said, “I was disappointed to be left out of the starting side for the return-leg but I felt I proved a point when I came on.“I set-up the first goal and scored the second goal so I was delighted I was able to make the impact I did. “I’m hopeful I’ve done enough to earn a place in the starting XI for the final at Wembley.McLaughlin admitted he was excited about the prospect of playing at Wembley and says as a kid you dream of playing on the hallowed turf.McLaughlin reflected fondly on his time with Derry City and encouraged people to continue to donate to the Mark Farren Treatment Fund.“I had a great spell at Derry, we won two cups and lost another final so it was a great time.“Mark Farren is an absolute gentleman and I’m delighted at the response he has got and I’m encouraging people to continue to donate. McLaughlin will be hoping Saturday the 30th of May will be a good day for the man from the Isle of Doagh when his Southend side face Stevenage at Wembley in the league-two play-off final.MCLAUGHLIN HOPEFUL OF MAKING STARTING XI FOR PLAY-OFF FINAL AT WEMBLEY was last modified: May 20th, 2015 by Mark ForkerShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)Tags:newssoccerSportStephen McLaughlinWEMBLEY
Essential Reading! Get my 2nd book: The Lost Art of Closing “In The Lost Art of Closing, Anthony proves that the final commitment can actually be one of the easiest parts of the sales process—if you’ve set it up properly with other commitments that have to happen long before the close. The key is to lead customers through a series of necessary steps designed to prevent a purchase stall.” Buy Now We have a lot of ideas about how buyers buy and how we as sellers should sell. We collect and count data (mostly without capturing any context) and use it to show how buyers make thoughtful, rational, well-informed decisions. But mostly, as buyers, we aren’t as thoughtful or rational as we pretend to be. Mostly, we make emotional decisions and rationalize them after the fact.This week, Alan Greenspan, former Chairman of the Federal Reserve, made the rounds to promote his new book. With a sexy title like The Map and the Territory: Risk, Human Nature, and the Future of Forecasting, how could I possibly resist picking up? It wasn’t the title that got me. It was Greenspan’s admission that “animal spirits” have a greater impact on the economy as a whole, and that we aren’t ruled by “considerations of our rational long-term self-interest.” Greenspan wrote the book to suggest that animal spirits need to be considered when you look at whole economies.So how is this useful to you and me? You and I have known animal spirits underlie economic decisions for a long time. Our clients aren’t rational, decision-making creatures.Here are a few ideas Greenspan discusses in the book. I selected them specifically for the crossover into sales.Animal Spirits: John Maynard Keynes coined this phrase to mean “a spontaneous urge to action rather than inaction, and not as the rational outcome of a weighted average of quantitative benefits multiplied quantitative probabilities.”Purchasing agents use spreadsheets to try to rationalize buying decisions. No one else does. The weighting is done in their head and doesn’t have very much to do with mathematical equations.Fear and Euphoria: “We all directly experience threats to our self and our values (fear) and the sense of well-being or elation (euphoria) triggered in pursuits of economic interests. Fear, a major component of animal spirits, is a response to a threat of life, limb, and net worth.”People are motivated to move away from pain and towards pleasure. We move away from danger and towards security. In larger, complex deals, this matters a great deal.Time Preference: “Time preference is the self-evident propensity to value more highly a claim to an asset today than a claim to that same asset at some fixed time in the future. A promise delivered tomorrow is not as valuable as that promised delivered today.”The return on investment we promise needs to be sooner rather than later. We don’t act in our own long-term self-interest because we are focused on the here and now. Even (especially) your clients.Herd Behavior: “There is a universally observed human trait to follow a leader of some sort. It is driven by most people’s need to achieve the security (emotional and physical) of belonging to a group. It is arguably one of our most important propensities, second only to fear, and a significant driver of economic activity.”“The emergence of modern social media has only accelerated herd behavior.”“People in every society seek to improve their status in the pecking order of any organization.”Want to know why consensus is so important? Want to know why people go along and get along? We need to belong to a group. Want to know why some organizations are so political? It’s the pecking order. Welcome to the herd!Home Bias: “Home bias is the propensity to deal with the familiar: with people and things geographically close to home and familiar in terms of culture, language, and trust.”“A propensity related to the comfort and familiarity of trading with partners close to home is the emotional comfort we all sense in personal relationships that become familiar and predictable. The uncertainty that arises with strangers imparts a certain, if minor, stress that subsides with familiarity.”All things being equal, relationships win. Trust matters. Caring matters.Look at the opportunities that you are working on right now. Look at your clients. If you can’t see the animal spirits at work, then look deeper. We are human beings, and animal spirits is the deep stuff that drives our behaviors and beliefs.

OTTAWA — Now that public prosecutors have decided to stay a breach-of-trust charge against Vice-Admiral Mark Norman, here are five questions Canadians don’t have full answers to:1) What was the evidence that got Norman’s charge stayed?The Public Prosecution Service of Canada said it received information in late March from Norman’s legal team that, upon review with the evidence the RCMP provided, led them to believe there was no reasonable prospect of conviction in the case. In court, the Crown said the new information provided greater context about Norman’s conduct and “revealed a number of complexities” prosecutors hadn’t previously known about. Defence lawyer Marie Henein suggested that it’s related to the previous Conservative government’s negotiations of the supply-ship deal with Chantier Davie shipyard.The information, however, hasn’t been made public. Nor was there an indication about why the information didn’t arrive sooner, or why it took another month before prosecutors decided to stay the case. At a press conference, Norman called the procurement system complicated and obtuse and an ugly process that is difficult to explain at the best of times.2) What was in that 60-page memo dealing with the Norman case that the top civil servant sent to Prime Minister Justin Trudeau last year?Norman’s legal team wanted to see what was in the memo, believing the information would help his defence. According to the government, it was information subject to solicitor-client privilege, which is the reason cited for keeping its contents secret. A witness in Norman’s pre-trial hearings suggested the memo actually originated with the Privy Council Office’s top legal officer but passed through Privy Council clerk Michael Wernick because that’s how memorandums from the public service formally get to the prime minister’s desk. But it’s not clear what the memo said specifically about Norman’s case.Of note is that Wernick has public said that in October 2018 he decided to let the court make the final call on what ordinarily secret cabinet information could be released to the defence team.3) Now that one legal fight is over, will Norman start another one?Although the government plans to cover Norman’s legal fees, he could sue the government in civil court over the handling of his case. The RCMP and government are the targets of a civil suit from Sen. Mike Duffy, who alleges his rights were abused in an investigation of his Senate expenses — which led to criminal charges of which he was acquitted.Henein said Wednesday that Norman’s criminal case had just ended minutes before and she and her client would make a decision at another time about whether to file a similar civil suit.4) Does Mark Norman go back to work? And in what role?Norman was suspended as the vice-chief of the defence staff at the start of 2017, and then officially shuffled out of the assignment and replaced by Lt.-Gen. Paul Wynnyk the following year. He has been in a “supernumerary position” within the defence chief’s office since June 2018.Norman said he is ready to go back to work — he joked about sorting out his building pass — but in what capacity is unclear. Gen. Jonathan Vance, chief of the defence staff, will make that decision.5) What happens to the other criminal trial over a shipbuilding leak?Matthew Matchett’s case remains open and the federal prosecution service reiterated Wednesday that it’s a wholly separate proceeding. Matchett was suspended in October 2018 from his job as a procurement officer at Public Services and Procurement Canada after his name came up in a submission Norman’s legal team made. He was charged in February with one count of breach of trust.Documents relevant to Norman’s case — including some that weren’t made public — could yet come out in Matchett’s trial. His case is in a similar state as Norman’s was before Wednesday, with the Crown and defence going over documents to determine what is relevant evidence.The Canadian Press
The Blood Tribe reserve in Alberta is currently 547.5 square miles.Tamara PimentelAPTN NewsA federal court ruled Wednesday that Canada owes the Blood Tribe 162.5 square miles (258 square kilometres) of land to fulfill its Treaty obligations.“The Blood Tribe Chief and Councillors are pleased to announce that a judgement has been received from the Federal Court on what is known as the “Big Claim”, said a release from the community.“A claim which the Blood Tribe has been pursuing for many years.”The Blood Tribe, located in southern Alberta, first started the process of reclaiming their land in 1980.Under the Treaty Land Entitlement formula, the Blood Tribe was entitled to a reserve of 710 square miles (1,838 square kilometres). The current reserve is 547.5 square miles (1,418 square kilometres)According to the claim in the federal court, the Blood Tribe said that Canada failed to fulfill its Treaty obligation to provide one square mile of reserve land for each five members of the Blood Tribe.That would add approximately 100 square miles to the reserve.It also claimed that the lands between the St. Mary and Kootenay Rivers, to the mountains and to the International Boundary as its reserve; and that its reserve was established by the 1882 Nelson survey, which surveyed the southern boundary of the reserve 5 miles further south than it is currently.“The Federal Court’s findings agreed with the Blood Tribe’s claim that there was an outstanding Treaty obligation and that the Tribe is owed a further 162.5 square miles based on the population at the time,” the statement said.“The Blood Tribe trusts that given the history of the Big Claim and the fact that both the ICC and the Federal Court have found that the Blood Tribe has a valid claim that Canada will not be appealing this recent judgement and that there will be finality to this long outstanding treaty obligation.”The Big Claim was ordered to be to be heard in the Federal Court as three phases.Phase one was the oral history evidence of Blood Tribe Elders, heard in May, 2016, phase two was a hearing on the substantive legal issues that was heard in May and June of 2018, and phase three willdeal with the damages that the Blood Tribe suffered.Leaders in the community first went to the specific claims court in 1996 but in 2002, Canada informed the Blood Tribe that the entire claim was rejected for negotiation through the specific claims process.It was then pursued through the Federal Court.“Now that the Federal Court of Canada has provided its decision Blood Tribe Council will be reviewing the options available to the Blood Tribe including the steps to bring this before the Court to have Phase 3 held and will continue to keep Blood Tribe members informed on the steps being taken in the Big Claim,” the statement said.No one from the community was available for an interview.The trial will continue at a later date to hear evidence and submissions on the remedy on the breach of [email protected]@Tamara_aptn
