Image Courtesy of Nick Leith-Smith Architecture+DesignAn emphasis on craftsmanship and tactility undercuts the four-bedroom home, as evident in the handcrafted oak and glass staircase connecting the first and ground floors. This attention to detail is made all the more commendable by the project’s completion in a mere fraction of the time typically required by a residence of its kind. In ten short weeks, the timber frame house was built almost in its entirety; during this time the structure was erected, fully externally clad, and roofed. Internally, floors were laid and rooms partitioned, and fitted with electrics and plumbing. A further eight weeks were required for the construction of the aforementioned flood-safe brick plinth, with joinery, kitchens, bathrooms, and finishes and other detailing completed after the ten-week initial construction period.•Berkshire, United Kingdom Area: 240 m² Area: 240 m² Year Completion year of this architecture project United Kingdom Projects “COPY” Nick Leith-Smith Builds Timber Frame Family Home in 10 WeeksSave this projectSaveNick Leith-Smith Builds Timber Frame Family Home in 10 Weeks Photographs: Courtesy of Nick Leith-Smith Architecture+DesignProject gallerySee allShow lessArchitects’ Propose Flexible Art Pavilion for SingaporeAwarded CompetitionWinners of d3 Unbuilt Visions 2014 Competition AnnouncedArchitecture News Share Houses Photographs Year: Save this picture!Photo by Quintin Lake.

London-based Nick Leith-Smith Architecture + Design built a timber frame family home in just ten weeks, replacing an existing post-war bungalow in Berkshire. The environmentally friendly residence is 240-square-meters and sits on a designated flood zone, requiring the house to be placed upon a 1-meter-high brick plinth. The addition of such height creates a split level between the garage and entrance level, adding depth to an otherwise restrained material palette.

More than half of charities use Cloud-based technology, yet nearly one in four do not have access to real-time data, according to research by Advanced.The Advanced Trends Report 2017 surveyed over 1,000 professionals in UK organisations including charities, and found that 65% of charities now use Cloud-based technology but 26% lack access to real-time data while 40% do not have the right tools to do their job effectively.Mark Dewell, Managing Director, Commercial and Third Sector, at Advanced, said:“Charities are under immense pressure – they need to be communicating closely with donors, efficiently and effectively, to maintain and grow revenues. This is coupled with the challenges of having the right digital technology so that staff can streamline administrative tasks to save costs and allow them to invest more time in the people that matter – supporters, members and stakeholders.“But the reality is that charities need to have the confidence to embrace Cloud technology fully, to ensure they can transform into digital-first organisations. This will ensure they are fit for the future, ready for real and present challenges around GDPR and better prepared to address threats such as cyber security.”Advanced has announced an acceleration of its plans to deliver a new Cloud-first strategy to help charities move forward. This includes the introduction of CloudDonor to its existing solutions, which it unveiled this week at TechSmart NFP 2017. This is an intuitive donor relationship management system that helps charities process fundraising income, build marketing campaigns and manage all the core elements of fundraising with web-based portals that provide information for both staff and donors which is accessible at all times from one source.

Grand Central Station, NYCNew York — Hundreds of anti-racist demonstrators marched from Times Square to Hell’s Kitchen here on Jan. 20 to confront white supremacists and misogynists celebrating the one-year anniversary of President Donald Trump’s inauguration. The venue information was made available to the public only two hours before the event started. The host of the event, who had two venues cancel on him in the run-up to the event, was only able to secure a dingy corner of the West Side Highway.An event intended as a celebration of white supremacy and toxic masculinity soon assumed a new tenor, as attendees found the building surrounded by a coalition of dedicated anti-fascists chanting, “Nazi scum! Off our streets!”It was just one victory in a string of victories during the Days of Rage (#DaysofRage), inspired by the growing resistance in Palestine. From Martin Luther King Jr. Day to the one-year anniversary of the Trump inauguration, militant actions took place across the U.S., with at least 16 in New York. These salvos against the ruling class opposed the reactionary Trump administration’s endless attacks on working-class and oppressed people.One year into a nightmare regime of deportation, repression and warmongering, the Democratic Party has done nothing to protect us. Instead, they hope that Trump’s crimes will amount to a victory for their party at the midterm elections. There are hundreds of thousands of migrants facing deportation, millions in prison held to slave labor, millions who do not have access to health care, housing, food security, etc., who cannot wait for midterms, cannot wait until 2020 and cannot rely on the Democratic Party, which has done nothing but betray them.The resounding message of the Days of Rage was: We don’t have to live like this. Only independent peoples’ struggle, not the Democratic Party, can provide genuine resistance.The coalition of resistance in New York included the Committee to Stop FBI Repression, Guevaristas for the Revolutionary Empowerment of Black and Latino Society (G-REBLS), International League of Peoples’ Struggles, Labor Against Racist Terror, Metropolitan Anarchist Coordinating Council, NYC Shut It Down, NYC Workers Defense Committee, the People’s MTA, People’s Organization for Progress, People’s Power Assemblies, Samidoun: Palestinian Prisoner Solidarity Network, Workers World Party and Why Accountability.Anti-racismDays of Rage kicked off with the Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. March & Rally Against Inequality, Racism, Sexism, Fascism and War in Newark, N.J., organized by POP. Among many other issues, the Jan. 15 march through downtown Newark raised the struggle against police brutality at home and imperialist war abroad, referencing King’s passionate but often ignored opposition to the Vietnam War.Every Monday for the past two and a half years, NYC Shut It Down has organized a Black Lives Matter protest known as People’s Monday, in which the story of a different Black, Brown or Indigenous person killed by the state is told. On King’s birthday, NYC Shut It Down and its supporters marched through Harlem, telling the story of King’s assassination. Police attempted to violently suppress the protest, arresting three marchers. The action defiantly continued and ended with jail solidarity at a nearby precinct for those arrested.LaborOn Jan. 15, Martin Luther King Jr. Day, activists organized a rally in Columbus Circle here to show solidarity with striking Spectrum workers — members of Local 3 of the International Electrical Workers, who have been on strike for nearly 10 months, since March 28.Florida prisoners began a strike that day demanding an end to prison slave labor, among other demands. When Dr. King was assassinated in Memphis, Tenn., he was supporting a strike of Black sanitation workers for decent wages and union recognition.TransportationThousands of New Yorkers, overwhelmingly Black and Brown, are arrested every month because they cannot afford subway fare, leading to jail time and even deportation. An action at the 3rd Avenue and 149th Street subway station in the Bronx raised awareness of these racist arrests and offered commuters free entry to the subway system.The action, organized and led by Bronxites for NYPD Accountability (Why Accountability) as part of the ongoing “Swipe It Forward” campaign, encouraged commuters with unlimited subway passes to use them to swipe another rider in when leaving the subway turnstiles. By swiping forward, which is completely legal, New Yorkers can reduce opportunities for the racist New York Police Department to harass, ticket and arrest riders unable to afford the ever-increasing subway fare.The People’s MTA held a speakout and rally at NYC’s Union Square raising the lack of accessibility in New York’s subway system. The action raised four demands: 100 percent accessibility; defend transit workers against attacks by the bosses and the media; cops out of the subway; and reduce the fare to $0 — make Wall Street pay!Cops infest the subway system to racially profile Black and Brown New Yorkers. They play no positive role in the system (as descendants of pre-Civil War slave patrols, they play no positive role anywhere). and must be expelled from the subway.Anti-imperialism and International SolidarityOn MLK Day, Samidoun: Palestinian Prisoner Solidarity Network held its weekly afternoon rally here protesting Israeli detention of Palestinians. This rally of dozens focused on Ahed Tamimi, the 16-year-old Palestinian recently jailed for resisting Zionist occupation of her homeland. Chants of “From the river to the sea, Palestine will be free” and “Not another nickel, not another dime, no more money for Israel’s crimes” were enthusiastically received by passersby.On Jan. 18, Guevaristas for the Revolutionary Empowerment of Black and Latino Society (G-REBLS) took to the streets and subways here to distribute literature detailing the crimes of U.S. imperialism in Puerto Rico, Honduras, Yemen and Palestine.Later that day, the International League of Peoples’ Struggles held a demonstration in Union Square against U.S. wars and imperialism. The demonstration demanded “U.S. out of everywhere!” and raised struggles against imperialism in Palestine and the Philippines. For more about this demonstration, see tinyurl.com/y9ocxsuw.On Jan. 19, the Haitian community and its supporters marched early in the morning to protest Trump’s most recent racist invective toward Haiti and African nations. The march was led by the 1804 Movement for All Immigrants, a newly formed anti-imperialist, Haitian-led coalition.Defend J20 and DurhamThe Committee to Stop FBI Repression held a public forum at the Solidarity Center here on Jan. 16 to discuss recent police repression, including updates on legal proceedings against activists arrested at last year’s J20 counterinaugural demonstrations in Washington, D.C., and against activists in Durham, N.C., who pulled down a white supremacist statue in August. CSFR shared tactics and strategies to defend the movement from police repression to a packed room. For more about this meeting, see tinyurl.com/y9wbo8qp.Opioid EpidemicWorkers World Party organized a demonstration inside the Sackler Wing of NYC’s Metropolitan Museum of Art i to raise awareness of the more than 200,000 people killed by drug overdoses in the U.S. since 1999. Last year more than 20,000 people died in the U.S. from prescription drug overdoses.The Sackler family has made billions off opioid painkiller OxyContin, legally killing thousands, while the “War on Drugs” has imprisoned millions of Black and Brown people for selling or possessing small amounts of recreational drugs. The demo called for the Met to return money donated by the Sacklers and for the Sackler fortune to be distributed as reparations to those whose lives have been ruined by OxyContin.Women’s Liberation On the morning of Jan. 18, the Metropolitan Anarchist Coordinating Council organized a Rally Against Rapist Cops and All Cops outside of Brooklyn Supreme Court to support Anna Chambers, an 18-year-old woman raped by two NYPD officers. People’s pressure is essential to win convictions in this case: The judge is Danny Chun, who let off killer cop Peter Liang without jail time two years ago.That evening, Workers World Party held a forum at the Solidarity Center on Women and the Fight Against Capitalism and Imperialism. Speakers raised the leadership of women in struggles against imperialism in Honduras and the Philippines and distinguished Marxist feminism, which sees patriarchy as a foundational component of capitalism, from bourgeois feminism, which sees it as a mere complicating flaw.A contingent organized by Samidoun: Palestinian Prisoner Solidarity Network mobilized for the NYC Women’s March on Jan. 20 to demand freedom for Palestinian freedom fighter Ahed Tamimi. Near the end of the march route, WWP and the People’s Power Assembly distributed literature and held signs. Slogans included “Justice for Sandra Bland,” “End Police Murder of Black Women” and “Time’s up for Patriarchy, White Supremacy and Capitalism.”After the Women’s March, Days of Rage culminated in a Rally Against Trump and Capitalism in Grand Central Station. Two large banners were unfurled from a balcony over the station. One of them read, “Capitalism Kills, Capitalism Deports, Capitalism Steals, Capitalism Violates. Abolish Capitalism!” Speakers raised a wide range of peoples’ struggles and the need for a broad movement against Trump independent of the Democratic Party.The rally ended with a march to Times Square and then on to Hell’s Kitchen to confront the white supremacist gathering. One thing is for sure: White supremacist misogynists like Mike Cernovich, Gavin McInnes and Stefan Molyneux will think twice before meeting openly in New York City again.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare this
Hoosiers Honored as ASA Regional Conservation Legacy Award Winner Facebook Twitter SHARE Mark and Phyllis Legan of Coatesville, Ind., received the American Soybean Association’s Conservation Legacy Award for the Northeast Region at last week’s Commodity Classic in San Antonio. The program is sponsored by BASF, Monsanto, the United Soybean Board and Corn and Soybean Digest, and recognizes soybean farmers across the country for their outstanding environmental and conservation practices, while maintaining profitable farming operations.“With an efficient livestock operation operating hand-in-hand with the farm’s soybean and barley operations, the Legans’ farm is a great case study in the variety and diversity of individual farms within our industry. Mark and Phyllis have done a wonderful job making use of the nutrients generated by their livestock and returning those to the soil in their fields,” said ASA President and Iowa farmer Ray Gaesser. “What’s more, the Legans are first generation farmers, and have brought a unique perspective to their work that will undoubtedly help other first generation operators do the same.”The Legans’ operation is both 100 percent no-till and 100 percent cover cropped, which Phyllis says enhances soil biological activity and improves organic matter. The Legans also utilize the manure from their large-scale hog operation as a nutrient for integration into their soil. Through drainage tiling, cover cropping, man-made wetlands and other methods, the Legans are also invested in smart water management on their farm as well.“Conservation means using our land and water resources, but leaving them in as good or better shape than when we were entrusted with them,” says Mark. “At the same time, we are living and working at a productive, sustainable farm and leaving it in good shape for future generations.”ASA presented the award to the Legans on Friday during the association’s annual awards banquet at Commodity Classic in San Antonio. Nominations are open for the 2015 Conservation Legacy Awards Program online at www.SoyGrowers.com/Award-Programs.Source: ASA By Andy Eubank – Mar 3, 2014 Home Indiana Agriculture News Hoosiers Honored as ASA Regional Conservation Legacy Award Winner Facebook Twitter Previous articleGrowers Voicing Support for EnlistNext articleCCSI Offering 4 Workshops on Soil Health and Cover Crops Andy Eubank SHARE
