Wood & Straw, an innovative and responsible constructive choice. Straw insulation is a natural material: it is a material healthy, durable (experiments show straw houses dating back nearly 100 years) and powerful (we get resistances of the order of 9 W / m².K – compare to 5 W / m².k traditionally for walls properly isolated).By opting for the construction of wood & straw, biosourced construction is favored, which limits the use of unsustainable resources.Save this picture!© Juan Sepulveda GrazioliThe constructive advantage of wood and straw construction compared to the traditional wooden structure and MOB wood frame walls is the possibility of complete prefabrication of the wall. The low weight of the wooden structure and straw allows the production of large areas of factory walls. The assembly line does not require a very powerful crane and the panels can be easily handled on site with light lifting equipment.Save this picture!© Juan Sepulveda GrazioliSave this picture!Floor planSave this picture!SectionThe insertion of the program in the site. The plot, a real park in the district of Gauchetières, is surrounded byJean Moulin Avenue to the west, Val Street to the east and Paul Langevin Street to the north. The landscaped importance of the site (large free park) allowed a free and structured implantation: the houses project will respond in the same way as the other buildingspresent in the park. The boundaries on the north side will be treatedlandscape and porous, to be perceived as thresholds.At the back of the parcel of fences will be set up, with wicketaccess. The pedestrian can continue to cross the park thanks to the faults that preserve the distant views, the porosity and create asupervision from Paul Langevin Street.Save this picture!© Juan Sepulveda GrazioliThe project’s challenge is not to recreate a built-up front but rather to create different rhythms and stay open on the site. By creating these faults of the street, the houses are grouped by module, which we will call “block” of 4 to 5 houses:Block A, the central block B, Block C.A and C are identical, in mirror.Save this picture!© Juan Sepulveda GrazioliThe central block B is slightly set back from A and C, to allow the requalification of the pedestrian band located between the car parks of the schools and the future houses. This withdrawal also allows breakthroughs not only south but also diagonally. It protects the houses from the proximity of the street.Save this picture!© Juan Sepulveda GrazioliThe houses arearranged in staggered rows to avoid sudden repetition by too rough alignments. The decommissioning of one house in two generates private green spaces and limits the creation of fence. An alternation of the heights of factage also allows to vary the silhouette and to energize it.Save this picture!© Juan Sepulveda GrazioliProject gallerySee allShow lessThayer Brick House / Brooks + Scarpa + Studio Dwell ArchitectsSelected ProjectsSubaru Nursery / RFA+CFASelected Projects Share Wood and Straw Housing / NZI Architectes ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/918820/wood-and-straw-housing-nzi-architectes Clipboard “COPY” I+A Projects Save this picture!© Juan Sepulveda Grazioli+ 19Curated by Paula Pintos Share France Year:  2019 Area:  1100 m² Year Completion year of this architecture project CopyHouses•Nogent-le-Rotrou, France Manufacturers: Bacacier, Cruard Charpente Architects: NZI Architectes Area Area of this architecture project ArchDaily Structure: Photographs:  Juan Sepulveda Grazioli Manufacturers Brands with products used in this architecture project CopyAbout this officeNZI ArchitectesOfficeFollowProductWood#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesNogent-le-RotrouFrancePublished on June 12, 2019Cite: “Wood and Straw Housing / NZI Architectes” 12 Jun 2019.

first_img Cheques will stay “for as long as customers need them”, the Payments Council announced today and said that the possible withdrawal date for cheques in 2018 has been scrapped.Chairman of the Council Richard North said: “It’s in the DNA of the Payments Council to consult and listen to all those people who actually make payments and use cheques. Over the last two years we have learnt a great deal about what is important to our many stakeholders and we are really grateful to all of those groups an individuals who took the time to talk to us and help us reach this decision.”Simon Morrison, director of marketing and communications at the Institute of Fundraising said the institute was delighted at the decision. “This will make a world of difference to a lot of our members, especially as some charities currently receive up to 80 per cent of their funding by cheque.”Previously released figures from CAF Bank show that it received 1.7m cheques worth £471m in the 2010/11 financial year. “Peter Mitchell, ceo of the bank said “We believe that this is great news for charities as many were extremely concerned about how to adapt to the potential loss of income that losing cheques might have brought.” Howard Lake | 12 July 2011 | News About Howard Lake Howard Lake is a digital fundraising entrepreneur.

first_img Facebook Twitter By Andy Eubank – Jun 29, 2014 Facebook Twitter International Soy Demand Remains Strong A variety of factors have China stocking up on U.S. soybeans, leading to what an industry analyst calls a “golden age” for U.S. soybean farmers. The U.S. has already exported more soybeans in the current marketing year than in any marketing year in history, and there are still a few months to go.Each year, U.S. soybean farmers export more than half their crop, and with international demand so high, soy value is strong, says Soy Checkoff consultant John Baize.“We’re having record demand every year. We’ve seen soybean demand grow faster than demand for any other major commodity. It is being driven by export demand and China has been the biggest driver of that.” Since 2000, Chinese pork production has increased 38-percent and demand to feed those hogs more soybean meal is driving China’s purchases. By providing high-quality soybean meal, U.S. farmers should remain the preferred supplier for China.For more information on the state of u.s. soy exports, visit www.unitedsoybean.org.

Reporters Without Borders (RSF) urges the international community to increase pressure on the Chinese regime to release all detained press freedom defenders. Tour guide Kunchok Jinpa, 51, who was a key news source on Tibet for foreign media until his arrests in 2013, passed away on 6th February 2021 in Lhasa as a consequence of ill-treatment suffered whilst in detention. He was serving a 21-year prison sentence for “leaking state secrets” after he provided information on protests in his native region of Driru, in eastern Tibet.“The Chinese regime should be held fully accountable for the death of Kunchok Jinpa, who was detained, submitted to ill-treatment, and likely tortured for the simple act of sharing information to the media”, says Cédric Alviani, Reporters Without Borders (RSF) East Asia Bureau head, who urges the international community “to increase pressure on Beijing to release all detained press freedom defenders.”In 2017, Liu Xiaobo, Nobel peace laureate and winner of the RSF Press Freedom Prize, and Yang Tongyan, dissident blogger, also died from ill-treatment whilst detained.China ranks 177th out of 180 in the 2020 RSF World Press Freedom Index and is the world’s largest captor of journalists with at least 121 detained, often in life-threatening conditions.

first_img Governmental Measures Target Expanded Access to Affordable Housing 2 days ago Governmental Measures Target Expanded Access to Affordable Housing 2 days ago Tagged with: Homeownership Rate Demand Propels Home Prices Upward 2 days ago Home / Daily Dose / Immigrant Homeownership is Bolstering the Housing Market The decline in the U.S. homeownership rate has been well-documented over the last couple of years; in the second quarter, the rate fell to a 51-year low of 62.9 percent.The homeownership rate is not declining for everyone, however. There is one group that is grabbing an increasingly higher share of the American Dream of homeownership.According to Trulia, the gap is closing between the homeownership rate for immigrants (U.S. residents born outside the country) and the rate for domestic-born residents. The disparity in homeownership rate between immigrants and domestic-born U.S. residents peaked in 2001 at 20.7 percentage points between the two rates but has narrowed considerably since then (15.7 percentage points in 2015).The homeownership rate of domestic-born U.S. residents has basically stayed flat over the last two decades while the rate for immigrants has increased during that same period, according to Trulia. In 1994, the homeownership rate for immigrants was 48.1 percent, compared with 66 percent for U.S.-born residents (a difference of about 17.9 percent). Both rates rose and then peaked during the bubble years, then started to fall; however, by 2015, the homeownership rate for U.S. residents in 2015 was basically the same as it had been in 1994, while the rate for foreign-born immigrants in 2015 (50.5 percent) was 2.3 percentage points higher than it was two decades earlier.Homeownership has long been viewed as a key to economic prosperity and building wealth. The closing disparity between the two and the fact that the homeownership rate is higher for immigrants than it was two decades ago indicates that immigrants are building more wealth and contributing more to the economy, according to Trulia.Immigrants are closing the gap because many of them are staying in the U.S. longer and building up a solid credit history and employment history, Trulia found.  For instance, the homeownership rate among immigrants who have lived in the country for five years or less was much lower than that of immigrants who have lived in the U.S. for 10 or more years in every state.“This is likely due to the fact that immigrants who lived in the U.S. less than five years do not have adequate credit history in the U.S. to obtain a mortgage, which forces them to rent rather than own,” said Mark Uh, data scientist with Trulia. “Thus, those states with a greater proportion of foreign-born having lived in the U.S. for longer durations saw higher rates of homeownership.” The Best Markets For Residential Property Investors 2 days ago Sign up for DS News Daily Share Save Previous: Top 10 States for Foreclosure Next: Wells Fargo: Q3 Earnings Calm in the Midst of the Storm Demand Propels Home Prices Upward 2 days ago Brian Honea’s writing and editing career spans nearly two decades across many forms of media.

This annual reinsurance agreement from FEMA is in effect from January 1, 2020, to January 1, 2021, with 27 private insurance companies. The newest reinsurance covers portions of NFIP losses above $4 billion from a single flood event. The Agency paid a total premium of $205 million for the coverage. The agreement is structured to cover:10.25 percent of losses between $4 billion and $6 billion,34.68 percent of losses between $6 billion and $8 billion, and21.80 percent of losses between $8 billion and $10 billion.Combing the $500 million allocated in August 2018 and the $300 million from April 2019, FEMA has transferred $2.13 billion of the NFIP’s flood risk for the 2020 hurricane season to the private sector. If a storm is large enough to trigger all reinsurance agreements (NFIP claims exceed $6 billion) FEMA would receive qualifying payments under all reinsurance agreements. In the event a storm results in NFIP claims over $10 billion, FEMA would receive the full $2.13 billion of coverage form the private markets. “It takes the whole community to prepare for disasters, and that includes participation from the private sector. Through reinsurance, FEMA partners with private markets to build a pillar that supports a sound financial framework for the NFIP by a meaningful transfer of flood risk,” said David Maurstad, Deputy Associate Administrator of the NFIP.The U.S. government avoided another shutdown in November 2019 and the NFIP was refunded through December 20. The NFIP was set to expire on November 21. President Donald Trump signed legislation in December that extends the program’s authorization to September 30, 2020. Congress must now reauthorize the NFIP by no later than 11:59 p.m. on September 30, 2020.   Print This Post The Best Markets For Residential Property Investors 2 days agolast_img read more

first_img Previous Article Next Article Employers’ associations must try harder if they are to surviveOn 21 Sep 2004 in Personnel Today Employers’associations were created in response to the development of formalisedindustrial relations. As a result, they are often thought of as bodies from thepast, battling to make themselves relevant to employers in an age whencollective bargaining is in retreat.However,associations have made considerable efforts to diversify their range ofservices in recent years, and have increasingly taken on training, advisory andconsultancy roles beyond their original briefs.Cranfield Network (Cranet) data helps to show wherethey retain members. Which organisations continue to be members of employers’associations, and how satisfied are they with the services the associationsprovide?The2003 Cranet Survey askedsenior HR practitioners whether their organisation (all with 100 or moreemployees) was in membership of anassociation. Approximately half of the employers surveyed reported that theywere members. Justunder half of the organisations were members, although the public sector showeda higher tendency towards membership. Since unions are better represented inthe public sector, this might indicate that membership itself continues to beassociated with traditional industrial relations functions.Asecond question asked how satisfied respondents were with the range of servicesprovided by their associations. The results are shown below. The majority saidmembership met their needs “to a small extent”. The proportion of managers reporting thatassociations met their needs to a small extent increased with the employer’ssize (measured by the number employed). Organisationsemploying between 2,000 and 5,000 people appeared to find membership mostproblematic. Three-quarters reported that the association met their needseither to a small extent, or not at all.Overall,the figures appear to give cause for concern that employers’ associations areonly meeting employers’ needs to a small extent. Only among smaller employers(those employing 200 people or less) did they achieve a majority of positivesatisfaction ratings from employers.Inshort, employers’ associations do, indeed, appear to be living on borrowedtime. The fragility of their members’ attachment to them is evident. It appearsthey will have to do more to meet their members’ needs by providing more andbetter services.Ifthey are unable to do this, the future looks bleak. It would appear to confirmthe view that there is insufficient scope for employers’ associations in themodern world of work. Comments are closed. Related posts:No related photos.last_img read more
