The site is located on the edge of the village, facing small mountains. Compared with nearby sites with the same shape and area, the project site had an irregular shape and relatively big area. Considering that unique site conditions, the architect had to think over several site plan options with the view of the whole village. The client suggested a square plan because he liked the simple form and also because it can be a good way of reducing construction costs. The architect agreed it would be a simple but powerful declaration in a new town, to put a simple volume on the edge of the village.Save this picture!© JiHyun ChoiSave this picture!First Floor PlanSave this picture!© JiHyun ChoiThe butterfly roof is a result of deliberation to satisfy two design conditions: to make a pitched roof following planning guidelines and to make a flat roof matching the square plan. An image was pulled out from a study model; a several-folded roof made of paper on top of a solid cube. To build it, a hybrid structure system of concrete and steel was adopted.Save this picture!© JiHyun ChoiThanks to the structure system, four sharp crevices between the roof and the wall were created, and then became clerestories. The ceiling was treated with a pure white surface with no additional elements, such as lights and sensors. The glass floor came from the desire of the client, who wanted to have openness and space efficiency at the same time. It plays a role in connecting light and indicates whenever someone is being around.Save this picture!© JiHyun ChoiThe butterfly roof, clerestories, and the glass floor create a unique space that can’t be found anywhere else. Despite the seemingly enclosed impression, the atmosphere in the house dramatically changes, delicately responding to changes in the weather and time outside. The sunshine that enters deep into the house penetrates the space, crashes, and crumbles, creating an unexpected effect and unique atmosphere. The flow of sunshine from the second floor to the first floor through the glass floor is reversed by the artificial light flow rising from the first floor to the second floor at night. The clerestories, which were the entrances to accept the sunshine during the day, become the outlets for nighly light emission.Save this picture!© JiHyun ChoiThe idea of a new life has led to deliberation about the meaning of each basic building element, such as walls, pillars, floors, staircases, roofs, and light. As for the designing new house, KyungHwan Chun hopes this house to inspire dreams, rather than to be simple.

first_img The M/T Al Funtas is one of four KOTC very large crude carriers (VLCCs) to be retrofitted with the Wärtsilä Fuel Efficiency Boost. (Credit: KOTC) The technology group Wärtsilä has been contracted to upgrade the performance of four vessels owned by Kuwait Oil Tanker Company (KOTC), a subsidiary of Kuwait Petroleum Company (KPC), by retrofitting the Wärtsilä Fuel Efficiency Boost solution to the ships’ main engines. The modification will reduce fuel consumption, and correspondingly lessen the environmental impact by lowering greenhouse gas emission levels. The order with Wärtsilä was placed in the first quarter of 2020. KOTC and other major ship owners who have taken a proactive approach towards environmental protection have been actively looking for ways to reduce their fuel consumption and carbon footprint, thus paving the way for them to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. As a result, the Wärtsilä Fuel Efficiency Boost initiative has attracted considerable interest, and similar orders from other large shipping companies have been placed in recent months.The Wärtsilä solution is based on two-stroke engine optimisation technology for selected Wärtsilä RT-flex and earlier deliveries of X-type two-stroke engines. The four KOTC very large crude carriers (VLCCs) to be retrofitted operate with 7-cylinder Wärtsilä RT-flex82T two-stroke main engines. The retrofitting of the vessels with the Wärtsilä Fuel Efficiency Boost will take place over the coming six months.“Our smart marine approach is dedicated towards raising efficiencies and improving the environmental sustainability of marine operations. The Wärtsilä Fuel Efficiency Boost is completely aligned with this philosophy, while at the same time lowering operating costs,” says Mr Riad Belaid, Area Sales GM, Middle East & Asia, 2-stroke & Specialised Services, Wärtsilä Marine Business.“By modifying the main engines of these carriers, we are assured of operating with the latest technology and having the best operational efficiency. We know and trust Wärtsilä’s high quality products and systems, and we appreciate the excellent support they offer,” says KOTC’s Acting CEO, Mr. Ali Shehab.The Wärtsilä Fuel Efficiency Boost is a well-balanced combination of an increased compression ratio and modified injector nozzles. Together with optimised engine tuning parameters, it allows fuel savings of up to 4%. The pilot installation showed around 10~12 tons per day lower fuel consumption than a sister vessel operating the same route, and resulted in 1195 tons of fuel savings over the 9 months pilot period.In 2019, Wärtsilä successfully installed the company’s Intelligent Combustion Control and Fuel Activated Sacless Technology (FAST) upgrades on these same four vessels.

first_imgJefferson County, In. — The Big Oaks National Wildlife Refuge calls upon volunteer birders and nature enthusiasts in Indiana to participate in Audubon’s longest-running wintertime tradition, the annual Christmas Bird Count (CBC).  Volunteer birders of all skill levels are needed to count birds.  The Big Oaks NWR count will be held on Saturday, December 15, 2018.  Volunteers may sign up to count birds for a half day (until noon, or noon to sunset) or all day.  We will meet at 8:00 am at the Big Oaks NWR office.  The Big Oaks Conservation Society, a not-for-profit refuge support group, will provide lunch for volunteers at the refuge office. If you are interested in participating in the Big Oaks NWR count, contact the refuge at 812-273-0783.  Weather for the Christmas bird count can be variable, but warm and/or waterproof clothing is recommended.The Christmas Bird Count began over a century ago when 27 conservationists in 25 localities, led by scientist and writer Frank Chapman, changed the course of ornithological history.  On Christmas Day of 1900, the small group posed an alternative to the “side hunt,” a Christmas day activity in which teams competed to see who could shoot the most birds and small mammals.  Instead of shooting birds, Chapman proposed to identify, count, and record all the birds they saw, founding what is now considered to be the world’s most significant citizen-based conservation effort and a more than century-old institution.Apart from its attraction as a social and competitive event, the CBC reveals valuable scientific data.  Each count group completes a census of the birds found during one 24-hour period between December 14 and January 5 in a designated circle 15 miles in diameter—about 177 square miles.  Now in its 118th year, the CBC is larger than ever with more than 2000 individual counts scheduled, expanding its geographical range and accumulating information about the winter distributions of various birds, and it is vital in monitoring the status of resident and migratory birds across the Western Hemisphere.  The data, 100% volunteer generated, have become a crucial part of the U. S. Government’s natural history monitoring database.   Count results from 1900 to the present are available through Audubon’s website.Big Oaks NWR consists of 50,000 acres on the former Jefferson Proving Ground (JPG) located in Jennings, Ripley, and Jefferson Counties in southeastern Indiana.  The local refuge is managed by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service and provides public use opportunities, such as hunting, fishing, wildlife observation, photography, interpretation and environmental education.  The refuge has one of the largest contiguous forest blocks in the southeastern part of the state as well as one of the largest grassland complexes; both provide wonderful wildlife viewing opportunities for refuge visitors.  Information about the refuge is available online here.last_img read more

first_imgA company’s values, having a social media policy in place, and employees being your customers, were a few of the discussions held at the Future of HR Summit in Boksburg, Gauteng.Ian Dury of Kyocera was on a panel speaking about “Digital Revolution” at the Future of HR Summit. Dury spoke about automation of administration processes such as filling in leave forms. (Image: Melissa Javan)Melissa JavanYour employees are your brand ambassadors, McDonald’s CEO Greg Solomon told delegates at the Future of HR Summit.The conference explored the transformation of human resources in the business environment, forecast trends for the coming year, shared innovative approaches to overcoming challenges and discussed methods of employee engagement in the digital age. It was held on 19 and 20 July in Boksburg, Gauteng.Topics under discussion included “Mobile talent sourcing: what does it mean for your business?” and “Unpacking the 2017 Global Human Capital Trends”.Solomon’s topic was “Guidelines to global success – a McDonald’s case study”.Solomon said out of 11,500 employees in his business, it lost about 2,000 people every year. It was important to treat employees well – if not, they would tell their families and friends, especially children, about their bad experiences. “Your people are your future customers.”When he spoke about a company’s values, Solomon challenged the audience by asking: “What is the one thing in your organisation that everyone can get right?” McDonald’s focus, for example, was quality, service and cleanliness.Equal happiness was important, he said. In 2016, he told restaurant owners they would not get bonuses. “We did make a deal with them that if they met their KPIs [key performance indicators], they would win a six-day trip on a ship to Mauritius. Out of 170 restaurant owners, 120 met their KPIs and went on the cruise to Mauritius.”There were 250 McDonald’s outlets in South Africa, said Solomon, who called it a “people business”. Of that amount, 74% were open 24/7, although he was wary about these hours and put them to the restaurant owners.“We used to close at 23:00, and then employees would be finished at 00:00. They would then arrive at home around 01:00. So we had people saying ‘I’m struggling with this late shift.’” But employees were happy that the shifts were different now; the 24/7 worked for them.Culture in a businessColin Browne, author of How to Build a Happy Sandpit, spoke about the importance of having a company culture. His example was a group of four friends on a road trip to Cape Town. Their strategy would include who paid for the fuel, where they would stay and where they would stop along the way. If they created a culture, he said, it would be an epic road trip.“Culture brings life, heart to strategy. Without culture, strategy is just things we do.”Without culture, the work place would not feel like life. “A lot of people put their ‘work hat’ on and do not bring their best level of themselves.”One way to build a culture in a business was to have fewer stupid rules, Browne said. “Often we are great at teaching, but can we learn too. You don’t have to be in leadership to have a leadership idea.”Respect was a two-way street. “We are seeing that younger people want to work for a company that is perceived to be good.”Speaking about living your company’s values, he gave as an example the McCarthy company. One of its values was family-related. It was found that there were people in the company whop could not read or write; free classes were then arranged to teach these people to read and write, to empower them.The importance of a social media strategyVerlie Oosthuizen, a lawyer, spoke about “The art of connecting: devise your winning social media policies and procedures”.“I did employment law for 10 years. I started seeing social media issues coming up. My friends would post things that I thought ‘how can you do (post) that?’”She was prompted to ask her firm to implement a social media department, and it had seen several cases relating to social media problems at the Commission for Conciliation, Mediation and Arbitration.WhatsApp was the biggest social media platform in South Africa, according to Oosthuizen’s statistics. “It is also where the biggest problems are found for employees. For instance, you cannot delete a message you send nor edit it. People screen-grab your message easily.”She warned that people who frequently used and understood social media, might not understand the long-term effects of the platforms. “It’s important to look at social media policies. Educate your employees on it.“Employers have a lot of control regarding what their employees say on social media. It’s important that employees are taught about what they can say. You are entitled to have a stand – your employees have chosen to work for your organisation.”Similarly, your employees had to know your social media strategy – it had to “live” when you implemented it. When you were enforcing it, it had to be consistent. “Look at each case differently.”Delegates tweeted their learnings:“You need to up-skill your staff if you expect them to do different things” – David Edwards if @CEB_News at #FutureofHR pic.twitter.com/SH0DwXYkU5— #FutureofHR (@Future_of_HR) July 20, 2017We’re here discussing all things HR, Recruitment, Talent Management, Corporate learning etc #futureofhr Summit cc @SABPP1 @Future_of_HR pic.twitter.com/QcGCf4UKCA— Ziyana Consulting HR (@HR_Ziyana) July 19, 2017“When you tie your actions to your values you are most likely to complete these actions”-SunInternational @MillionThrills interactivesession pic.twitter.com/zQku03RZxk— #FutureofHR (@Future_of_HR) July 19, [email protected]_of_HR #futureofhr – treat your employees as if they were your customers.

first_imgInter Milan’s boss Luciano Spalletti explained the situation surrounding the future of Ivan Perisic after his side’s narrow 1-0 loss to Torino.Torino secured three points thanks to Armando Izzo’s header which extended Inter’s winless run in their two Serie A games of 2019.However, reports of Perisic’s exit that was later confirmed by director Beppe Marotta changed the atmosphere prior to kick-off.“It’s quite simple. Players can say what they want, but they are employees, they have signed contracts and in order to leave, they need someone willing to pay for them,” the Coach told Football Italia.“You can’t leave for free and with your salary paid by someone else. If, as Marotta said, he doesn’t want to play, then clearly he’ll be left out. That’s not a problem for me.Romelu Lukaku, Serie A, Inter MilanCapello calls Lukaku “a modern striker” Manuel R. Medina – September 14, 2019 The former Italian manager believes Romelu Lukaku is perfectly suited for Antonio Conte’s Internazionale Milan in the Serie A.“Someone who cannot contribute to the team has to stay out.”Benching Perisic was also one of the reasons for the change in formation to 3-5-2 against Walter Mazzarri’s Torino.“I changed the wingers with two strikers, because I didn’t have many wingers at my disposal. Perisic is indisposed, we risked Matteo Politano at the end because he wasn’t well, while Keita is out.“We made a different choice, based on physicality and not losing individual duels, so we could create chances for the front two. We got a couple of situations wrong, then when Toro clammed up after the goal, it became more difficult.“Now we’ve got to get the team back in order based on the tactical principles we ha. We need everyone to do their job, because we were too sluggish in the tackles.”last_img read more
