Nestled into the native shrubs of the Martha’s Vineyard coastline, East House’s site-cast concrete façade welcomes tendrils of coastal vines while providing a robust barrier to New England’s coastal weather. The ten-inch-thick concrete walls are cast in the form of a collection of concrete boxes, relieved with sustainably harvested Spanish Cedar window frames, and oriented to achieve both subtle and dramatic responses to the landscape.Save this picture!DiagramDuring design, a commissioned study revealed a rate of coastal bluff erosion that made both client and architect extremely uncomfortable with the siting of the residence. The solution was to cast the floors – formerly wood-framed – in concrete, making each box a three or four-sided structural unit that could be individually lifted and moved to a location far from the bluff, should erosion occur. The 4,000 square foot house is thus divided into concrete boxes –  individually liftable with all interior finishes in place, and interstitial corridors – light wood framed zones that can be easily removed and rebuilt if the building is moved.Save this picture!© Chuck ChoiSave this picture!© Chuck ChoiEach box has a rugged concrete exterior and is finished with interior stone floors. The interior walls are clad in Douglas Fir and Alaskan Cedar, which are soft to touch, but extremely durable in the rough coastal weather. Circulation travels along the interior figure of the boxes through interstitial spaces both rough-framed and finished in wood, and is choreographed to an ever-more-revealing experience of the site. Strategic through-views to surrounding greenery direct visitors from the entrance to a library and living area.Save this picture!© Chuck ChoiSave this picture!Floor PlanSave this picture!© Matthew SnyderEmbedded in the natural landscape, East House is nearly invisible from points further up the slope. The concrete shell is cantilevered over the landscape, allowing for expanses of glass along five walls. Operable windows pull back, and the gap between the concrete units amplifies the sound of the ocean, bringing it along with sea breezes through the entire house. A planted roof caps each box individually, mitigating run-off while further visually integrating the building with the lush landscape. Rainwater is collected in the interstitial roofs, directed to a single Mahogany flue, and cast into a below-ground cistern for use in irrigation. Geothermal wells use the earth’s thermo-conductivity to temper living spaces, vastly reducing the size and cost of HVAC equipment. With radiant heating, calibrated window openings, and the thermal mass of concrete, the house creates natural ventilation and buffers summer heat gain. Save this picture!© Chuck ChoiProject gallerySee allShow lessTezuka Architects on Their Formative Experiences, Architecture as a Cure and Finding…InterviewsCall for Entries: Melbourne Tattoo AcademyIdeas Share ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/794755/east-house-peter-rose-plus-partners Clipboard ArchDaily Area:  4000 ft² Year Completion year of this architecture project Houses Photographs CopyHouses•Chilmark, United States CopyAbout this officePeter Rose + PartnersOfficeFollowProductConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesChilmarkUnited StatesPublished on September 07, 2016Cite: “East House / Peter Rose + Partners” 07 Sep 2016.

Zagorje mills became the 23rd Croatian product protected in the EU

first_img“Zagorski mlinci” has been awarded the European protected geographical indication, the European Commission published in the Official Journal of the European Union L 168 on June 25, 2019.Thus, “Zagorski mlinci” are entered in the register of protected designations of origin and protected geographical indications and protected throughout the European Union.The geographical area of ​​production of “Zagorje mills” includes the area of ​​Hrvatsko Zagorje, ie the entire area of ​​Krapina-Zagorje County, the entire area of ​​Varaždin County and the peripheral parts of Zagreb County bordering Krapina-Zagorje and Varaždin County, ie municipalities: Brdovec, Marija Gorica, Pušća, Dubravica, Luka , Jakovlje, Bistra and Bedenica.Croatia now has 23 agricultural and food products whose name is registered in the European Union as a protected designation of origin or a protected geographical indication. In addition to the name Zagorski mlinci, the following are registered: Krk prosciutto, Extra virgin olive oil Cres, Neretva mandarin, Ogulin sauerkraut / Ogulin sauerkraut, Baranja kulen, Lika potatoes, Istrian prosciutto / Istrian prosciutto, Drniš prosciutto, Dalmatian prosciutto, Poljički soparnik / Poljički zeljannik Krk olive oil, Korčula olive oil, Pag lamb, Šolta olive oil, Varaždin cabbage, Slavonian kulen / Slavonian kulin, Međimurje meat ‘from Tiblica, Slavonian honey, Lika lamb, Istria and Pag salt. For these products, the EU mark of protected designation of origin or protected geographical indication on the packaging guarantees the consumer the purchase of an authentic product. More information The process of protection of the name “Zagorski mlinci” began in September 2016, when the Association for the Protection, Preservation and Promotion of Traditional Zagorje Products “Tradition of Zagorje” submitted a request to the Ministry of Agriculture to protect the geographical indication. In April 2017, the Ministry of Agriculture issued a Decision on the transitional national protection of the name “Zagorski mlinci”, and in June of the same year a request was sent to the European Commission for the registration of the name at the level of the European Union.The simple recipe of “Zagorje mills”, which contained only flour, salt and water, was passed down through the generations in the families of Hrvatsko Zagorje and has remained until today. The recognizable appearance and fragile texture of “Zagorje mills” is due to the specific way of baking the dough on flat or rounded hot plates, which lasts only a few minutes. Baking mills on such plates is a traditional way of baking “Zagorje mills”, just as it used to be baked on ovens in Zagorje houses.”Zagorski mlinci” is a product that, after being prepared, is traditionally served with roasted poultry meat, so in almost all records related to the way of consuming “Zagorski turkey”, it is stated that it is served with “Zagorski mlinci”. Both products belong to the most important autochthonous products of Hrvatsko Zagorje and are found in almost all tourist, gastronomic and other publications related to Hrvatsko Zagorje, and together they form a recognizable combination – the “main dish” of Hrvatsko Zagorje, most often called “Zagorje turkey with grinders”.”Zagorski mlinci” is a bakery product prepared from wheat smooth flour type 550, water and salt from which a thin, rolled and hand-stretched dough up to 2,5 mm thick is made. The stretched dough is then cut into rectangular pieces, which are baked in two stages on hot plates and dried until done. The finished product “Zagorski mlinci” is a thin, baked dough of rectangular shape with possible uneven edges, white-yellow color, flat and in some places slightly raised surfaces with characteristic, sometimes burnt protrusions (bubbles) light brown, brown to black color due to swelling of the dough baking. Before consumption, “Zagorski mlinci” are manually broken into smaller pieces and poured over with boiled water, after which they should be left to stand for a short time. They are then drained, traditionally seasoned with hot baking fat and can be consumed.”Rarely does anyone have such a complete story – turkey and grinders, both protected. We expect that the picky European market will recognize our products, but also that manufacturers will be able to form an adequate price for that market.. Through the Entrepreneurship Center, we will make a proposal to the Ministry of Agriculture that they also subsidize the increase in production. “, concluded the prefect of Krapina-Zagorje County, Željko Kolar.”The Ministry of Agriculture wants to increase the number of producers participating in the system of control of protected products. Given that entering the control system for producers means a certain financial cost in the Rural Development Program of the Republic of Croatia for the period 2015-2020, we have envisaged Measure 3, which is intended for new producers of protected agricultural and food products, and in which they are fully recognize and finance product control costs. Also through this measure, co-financing of various promotional activities carried out by producer groups is envisaged. Thus, we are trying to increase the number of manufacturers, and thus products and their promotion, which will certainly facilitate the placement of products outside the borders of the Republic of Croatia. I call on our manufacturers to protect as many products as possible, because that way their products also get added value” pointed out the Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Agriculture, Tomislav Tolusic.

Jermall Charlo raring to gift Dennis Hogan KO, lock in 2020 fight with Canelo or GGG

first_imgThe WBC middleweight champion meant a lump of coal in the form of a knockout. Getting that done would give Charlo his 30th professional victory and 22nd KO. From there, Charlo would go back to waiting for his own gift-wrapped box in the form of a big-name fight against Saul “Canelo” Alvarez or Gennadiy Golovkin, hoping to make one or both part of his 2020 vision.Join DAZN and watch more than 100 fight nights a yearSecuring a bout with either could be a difficult task, considering both Canelo and GGG fight on DAZN, while Charlo is a PBC fighter. Alvarez, his trainer Eddy Reynoso and Golden Boy Promotions have been rather unpredictable with his booking of late, too, with his last three fights taking place in three different weight classes: An 11th-round TKO of Sergey Kovalev in a light heavyweight tilt in November, a unanimous decision over Daniel Jacobs in middleweight action back in May and a third-round TKO of Rocky Fielding at super middleweight in December of 2018.Currently, Canelo owns the WBA (Super) middleweight championship, the WBA (Regular) super middleweight title and the WBO light heavyweight strap that he got by moving up two weight classes and defeating Kovalev last month. When Reynoso spoke with FightHype earlier this week, Charlo wasn’t on Canelo’s short list of potential opponents. That list did include GGG, Billy Joe Saunders, Callum Smith and John Ryder.As for Golovkin, the 37-year-old got a lot more than he bargained for against Sergiy Derevyanchenko in October. While Golovkin did earn the unanimous decision to claim the IBF and IBO middleweight titles, plenty of boxing pundits felt like Derevyanchenko did enough to win the fight. Whether that performance from GGG will make the Kazakh warrior reluctant to unify titles with Charlo remains to be seen.”I don’t know, man,” Charlo told Sporting News with a sigh. “Hopefully we get the looks of those guys one day. I feel like I can stand in there with those guys.”Charlo, 29, has quality wins — his December 2016 victory over Julian Williams arguably being his best — but it’d take an even bigger name to truly allow this lion to roam boxing’s most coveted den.If Charlo has to move up to super middleweight at 168 pounds to catch Canelo, he’s willing and able. However, if Canelo and GGG spurn him, Charlo has just the right opponent in mind — none other than Jacobs. After hitting the Canelo sweepstakes only to fall short to the Mexican fighter on the cards in May, Jacobs moved up to 168 pounds and will face Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. on Dec. 20.Despite Jacobs also fighting on DAZN, the timing of his fight and Charlo’s before it puts the two fighters on essentially the same schedule. And there’s mutual interest, considering their bit of history following a testy exchange the two had backstage last year.”I will, for sure, for real,” Charlo said about moving up and facing Jacobs. “It will happen.”Of course any of those three fights would be in jeopardy if Charlo loses to Hogan, who’s moving up from junior middleweight to 160 pounds to challenge for the title. Hogan spoke about having more power in his punch during the press conference Thursday, but Charlo isn’t buying it.”If Hogan says he’s more powerful at middleweight, then he’s going to come to fight and stay in the pocket,” Charlo said. “If he comes to box, I’ll come to fight, and if he comes to fight, I’ll be able to box him. Regardless, we’re going to make adjustments in the fight. “If he can’t take my shot, I’m going to hit him flush and put him out.”Check that box, and Charlo can enjoy being dad over the holidays. The Houston native who waves around the “Lions Only” mantra recently welcomed his latest cub, daughter Journi — his first daughter after four sons. That gives Charlo a renewed sense of purpose.”You got to have more respect for yourself,” Charlo told Sporting News. “[The trash talk] looks good to people, but later on it’s, ‘Dad, why did you say this? Why did you say that?’ You gotta be able to become a man.”Charlo turns 30 in May. He can only do his part against Hogan first and hope that the marquee names hear this lion’s roar and feed his hunger. Jermall Charlo sneered in Dennis Hogan’s direction with some final words.”It’s going to be a good night of boxing and that’s all I have to deliver — something explosive,” Charlo said Thursday to end the press conference at The Tillary Hotel in Brooklyn before his fight Saturday night just one mile away at the Barclays Center. “A nice little Christmas gift for you, homie.”last_img read more

Cats coach confident of better days ahead for Kootenay squad

first_imgEven after losing two of three games on the Island, Wildcats skipper Cary Fisher remains confident there are bigger and better days ahead for the Kootenay-based squad.“Had you watched the game you would not have believed we came up short,” Fisher told The Nelson Daily after the Cats dropped two of three BC Female Midget AAA Hockey League games to the Vancouver Island Hurricanes this past weekend in Campbell River.Vancouver Island won the final two games by 3-1 and 2-1 scores.Kootenay opened the series with a 5-2 win thanks to the two-goal performance of Denomie Vockeroth-Fisher of Rossland.Danica Dahlin (Golden), Kimberley Huisman (Fernie) and Keegan Paterson (Nelson) also scored for the Cats, which held period leads of 3-1 and 4-2.Cats’ netminder Morgan Flynn (Castlegar) was in goal for the win. “This weekend was tough after coming out and playing well enough to score five goals we struggled to find the net in the next two games,” Fisher explained.“The players worked very hard in both losses and we had a great time of possession advantage in both losses.”Vockeroth-Fisher and Stephanie McAuley (Trail) scored the other goals for Kootenay.“I think our goal needs to be more engaged in the moment,” said Fisher.“For non athletes this may seem a bit odd but it works like this — a player can work hard but in the moment they can loose focus even while working hard.  We missed the net a lot and we missed open players. “Kootenay, 4-4-1, drops to fourth in BCFMHL standings, but is only one point from second in the six-team league.Fraser Valley Phantom tops the league with an 8-0-2 record.“I guess the best way to describe it is paying attention to details and being more surgical in our approach,” said Fisher, pleased with the play of Keegan Paterson of Nelson, McAyla Yuris (Trail) and Denomie Vockeroth-Fisher.“Simple is best with most things in life and I believe this team will find a simple game very soon.”The Cats are off until November 22 when Kootenay travels to Kelowna for a three-game set against the Okanagan Rockets.last_img read more

Walking Alongside our Service Members, Veterans and Their Families

first_imgWording read during the presentationI was honored and humbled to be recognized for my contributions to the BTYR efforts as together we support our Service members and families. I encourage everyone to engage in building his or her community’s capacity. In what small ways can you walk alongside Service members, families and Veterans in your community? How can you build community capacity and create or contribute to a rapid response team?         I am only one, but still I am one. I cannot do everything, but still                                  I can do something; and because I cannot do everything, I will                                      not refuse to do something that I can do. – Helen Keller   by Anita Harris Hering         The highest reward for a person’s work is not what they get for it,                             but what they become because of it. – John RuskinRuskin’s quote could very well define my family of eight – three sisters, two brothers and my parents. Volunteerism within our church and the community never was something scheduled around our weekly duties and jobs, but rather our duties and jobs were scheduled around when we were to volunteer. Being actively engaged with the needs of our community always came first.Our parents made volunteering a priority and helped us kids to understand the importance of volunteering in the community such as with The American Legion, VFW, Lions, making picnic tables for the community park, partnering with local churches on an Ecumenical summer kids program, bringing food to the local food shelf (even though we didn’t have much for ourselves), etc. I learned that being present to others in the community, was (and still is) what one does while here on earth. I learned the value of meeting people where they are in life and then moving forward together.My volunteer experience as a child is what brought me to the place in my heart and influenced my current volunteerism efforts. I have been passionately active in our local nine city Central Minnesota Warrior to Citizen – Beyond the Yellow Ribbon (BTYR) program as early as 2005 when the seed was planted, when it was proclaimed a BTYR program in 2010 by then Minnesota Governor Pawlenty, and even now. Anita Harris Hering joined the University of Minnesota Extension as an Extension educator in 2005. She has extensive experience with youth, adults, volunteers, educators, community partnerships, Service members, Veterans and their families.center_img What is a Yellow Ribbon Community?“A Yellow Ribbon Community unites all areas within a community to create a comprehensive network that connects and coordinates agencies, organizations, resources and employers for the purpose of proactively supporting Service members and military families.”Over the years, our BTYR team has been awarded with many awards (from military branches and units, corporate and private donations, gifts, and even the prestigious St. Cloud State University Husky Award from Student Life & Development and the campus Veteran Resource Center) for building community capacity and synchronizing community, county and company resources in support of Service members, veterans and military families. Our team has successfully collaborated with the local military Family Assistance Centers, nonprofit organizations, state and federal support partners, and the community as a whole to identify and address gaps in services to provide support to military connected residents. Which brings me to the greatest honor that I received in 2017.In 2017 SFC Mark Wood surprised me with a plaque for our Central MN Warrior to Citizen – BTYR and for me personally. I was also presented an AMERICAN FLAG which B Co 2-211 GSAB flew over Afghanistan in Operation Resolute Support – Operation Freedom’s Sentinel.While the Service members were working overseas, our BTYR team served as the local boots on the ground to provide support and services for the families and spouses. The wording on the plaque summarized our efforts.last_img read more
