An intrinsic connection to, and respect for, nature defines this Montauk weekend residence at every glance. The owners purchased two adjacent lots that were sold as one, a rarity to find in the area. Yet instead of building one oversized house, RYA created two separate structures — a main house and a guest house/garage — on the property. This leaves space in the middle, creating an unobtrusive scale and an overall feel that’s the opposite of a garish mansion.Save this picture!© Michael MoranThe two buildings are laid out to position each living space, whether indoors or out, to maximize the views and capture the summer sun and breezes. Lake Montauk is the main event, but not the only one: Secondary, more sheltered spaces offer cozy contrast to the wide-open water views. The main living spaces are placed close to the ground, with only glass and oversized sliding doors dividing indoors and out, providing a stage for informal indoor/outdoor living. Re-vegetated native shoreline plantings planted between the house and the water, instead of a traditional lawn, strengthen the dialog between the built and natural environment.Save this picture!© Michael MoranWhile the main house’s living spaces are nestled within the landscape, the three guest bedrooms sit over the garage/boathouse, with panoramic northern and western vistas from up high, contrasting with those offered by the main house.Save this picture!© Michael MoranSave this picture!Ground floor planSave this picture!© Michael MoranDespite those varying experiences, one factor keeps everything cohesive: materials. Natural materials were selected with an eye to how they’ll develop over time. Wide, rough-sawn cedar planks on the exteriors are left untreated to let the sun bleach them out to the silvery hue of driftwood; raw zinc roofs will also develop a mottled patina in time; and solid bronze hardware will stand up to the marine environment with little care and will become more beautiful with time and use.Save this picture!© Michael MoranInside, there’s an interplay of modern and rustic: An exposed structural steel frame spans large expanses of energy-efficient solar glass, adding a feeling of lightness while supporting a series of heavy solid wood roof trusses, painted white. The neutral palette of whites and bleached woods with dark accents makes for an aesthetic that’s at once serene and active. And a subtle-yet-powerful play of textures — from the smooth and rough painted wood planks, to handmade Moroccan tiles, to floors made of European white oak and finished to look as raw as possible — underscore the interplay of architecture and nature.Save this picture!© Michael MoranProject gallerySee allShow lessPlatform House / studioplusthreeSelected ProjectsUniversity Cultural Center Rogelio Salmona – First Phase / Rogelio SalmonaSelected Projects Share Becker Engineering Houses CopyHouses•Montauk, United States ArchDaily Civil Engineer: General Contractor: Landscape Architect: Architects: Robert Young Architects Area Area of this architecture project Photographs:  Michael Moran Manufacturers Brands with products used in this architecture project Year:  Lighting: James C.

Duplicate data still costs charities money, says Experian

first_img Howard Lake | 15 December 2008 | News Businesses including charities are still wasting money by sending duplicate mailings to supporters and donors, according to a new report from Experian®, the global information services company.The report titled ‘Making sense of a crowded nation’, includes ./guidance for organisations on how to optimise their contact data management strategies.Research commissioned for the report reveals that 85% of businesses across the UK’s main industry sectors – from financial services, retail and FMCG companies, through to charities – neglect to remove duplicate names and addresses from their mailing campaigns every month.The survey is based on responses from 150 businesses across the UK’s major industry sectors.None of the charities questioned believe their databases storing donors’ names and addresses were 100 per cent accurate, and only 10% thought that their current processes for removing duplicates were ‘highly effective’.Only 3% cent of charities surveyed undertake or outsource de-duplication exercises every month, compared to 31% of financial services organisations and 10% of those in the FMCG/retail sector.The scale of the potential problem of duplicate data is indicated by the fact that, according to the survey, 40% of charities send bulk communications more than once a month and 53% estimate that over 50,000 contacts are included in each mailing.Perhaps surprisingly, 59% of charities surveyed said that environmental impact is not a priority in their decision making around campaigns.Stuart Johnston, UK Managing Director of Experian QAS, comments: “One in four UK businesses still rely on manual de-duplication, which is a shocking statistic. Aside from the tough economic climate businesses are operating in, repeatedly mailing a customer with the same offer sends out a poor message about the company’s brand and its concerns about the environment.”He added: “Customer management is critical in today’s climate and it starts with having accurate and up to date data. Our research serves as a real wake-up call to businesses and it is critical that they take advantage of technology to identify, remove and prevent duplicates on their AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis  18 total views,  1 views today AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis About Howard Lake Howard Lake is a digital fundraising entrepreneur.

Miniature Truss Work

Meza, L. Montemayor, N. Clarke, J. Greer/CaltechFancy Erector Set? Nope. The elaborate fractal structure shown at right (with a close-up below) is many, many times smaller than that and is certainly not child’s play. It is the latest example of what Julia Greer, professor of materials science and mechanics, calls a fractal nanotruss—nano because the structures are made up of members that are as thin as five nanometers (five billionths of a meter); truss because they are carefully architected structures that might one day be used in structural engineering materials.Greer’s group has developed a three-step process for building such complex structures very precisely. They first use a direct laser writing method called two-photon lithography to “write” a three-dimensional pattern in a polymer, allowing a laser beam to crosslink and harden the polymer wherever it is focused. At the end of the patterning step, the parts of the polymer that were exposed to the laser remain intact while the rest is dissolved away, revealing a three-dimensional scaffold. Next, the scientists coat the polymer scaffold with a continuous, very thin layer of a material—it can be a ceramic, metal, metallic glass, semiconductor, “just about anything,” Greer says. In this case, they used alumina, or aluminum oxide, which is a brittle ceramic, to coat the scaffold. In the final step they etch out the polymer from within the structure, leaving a hollow architecture.Taking advantage of some of the size effects that many materials display at the nanoscale, these nanotrusses can have unusual, desirable qualities. For example, intrinsically brittle materials, like ceramics, including the alumina shown, can be made deformable so that they can be crushed and still rebound to their original state without global failure.“Having full control over the architecture gives us the ability to tune material properties to what was previously unattainable with conventional monolithic materials or with foams,” says Greer. “For example, we can decouple strength from density and make materials that are both strong (and tough) as well as extremely lightweight. These structures can contain nearly 99 percent air yet can also be as strong as steel. Designing them into fractals allows us to incorporate hierarchical design into material architecture, which promises to have further beneficial properties.”The members of Greer’s group who helped develop the new fabrication process and created these nanotrusses are graduate students Lucas Meza and Lauren Montemayor and Nigel Clarke, an undergraduate intern from the University of Waterloo.

While allowing the regular bail application of the Petitioner-accused who had joined the investigation as and when required, the bench comprised of Justice Sandeep Sharma observed, “object of the bail is to secure the attendance of the accused in the trial and the proper test to be applied in the solution of the question whether bail should be granted or refused is whether it is probable that the party will appear to take his trial. Otherwise, bail is not to be withheld as a punishment.” Reliance was placed on Sanjay Chandra v. Central Bureau of Investigation, (2012) 1 SCC 49, whereby the Supreme Court had observed, “The object of bail is to secure the appearance of the accused person at his trial by reasonable amount of bail. The object of bail is neither punitive nor preventative. Deprivation of liberty must be considered a punishment, unless it can be required to ensure that an accused person will stand his trial when called upon. The Courts owe more than verbal respect to the principle that punishment begins after conviction, and that every man is deemed to be innocent until duly tried and duly found guilty.” The Petitioner had been booked under Sections 509, 354, 354-A, 323 and 504 of IPC and Section 3(1) (10) of the SC/ ST (Prevention of Atrocities) Act, 1989. Since the Additional Advocate General, appearing for the state had informed the court that the Petitioner-accused had joined the investigation and was no longer required for custodial interrogation, the bench allowed the bail plea. While doing so, the bench highlighted the factors laid down by the Supreme Court in Prasanta Kumar Sarkar v. Ashis Chatterjee & Anr., (2010) 14 SCC 496, for grant of bail and it observed, “normal rule is of bail and not jail. Court has to keep in mind nature of accusations, nature of evidence in support thereof, severity of the punishment which conviction will entail, character of the accused, circumstances which are peculiar to the accused involved in that crime.” It thereafter ordered that the Petitioner be enlarged on bail subject to his furnishing personal bond in the sum of Rs. 20,000/- each with one local surety in the like amount to the satisfaction of concerned Chief Judicial Magistrate/trial Court.

It’s not something that I’ll forget”.The USS Abraham Lincoln is the fifth Nimitz-class super carrier in the United States Navy.At 333 metres long, 77 metres wide and weighing in at 100,000 tonnes, the ship is more than 25 times larger than Parramatta. The Abraham Lincoln is powered by two nuclear reactors, four steam turbines and can reach speeds of more than 30 knots with unlimited range.Parramatta departed company with the carrier group after the brief encounter to continue with her patrol in the Arabian Sea.Parramatta is currently deployed to the MEAO as part of Operation SLIPPER and under the Combined Maritime Forces (CMF), which is responsible for maritime security operations in the Gulf region, the maritime environment around the Horn of Africa, and counter piracy and terrorism operations in the Gulf of Aden.Parramatta’s presence is contributing to the inter-operability of 25 CMF nations and demonstrates Australia’s and CMF’s resolve to maintain safe access to vital international straits and the maintenance of good order at sea.The Anzac Class Frigate will be relieved on station by HMAS Melbourne in early March and will return to Sydney at the end of the month.[mappress]Naval Today Staff , March 07, 2012; Image: navy View post tag: Abraham View post tag: Navy View post tag: News by topic View post tag: joins View post tag: Parramatta Back to overview,Home naval-today HMAS Parramatta Joins USS Abraham Lincoln Carrier Battle Group View post tag: USSlast_img read more
