In addition, a multi-floor living space was needed due to the limitation of the site area.Save this picture!Floor PlanTherefore, to avoid facing each other, a round shaped volume was chosen against the corner of the square shaped volume of the main house. It was arranged so as to create a valley-like space in between the two buildings spreading open towards the outside. The round shape is set on an irregular shaped site, creating various shaped gardens around it that can be shared with the main house. Each room on the first floor in the round shaped building has a door that opens to the gardens.Save this picture!© Kentaro KuriharaA number of small rooms and a bathroom are located on the first floor, and a single large hall where everyone can gather is arranged on the second floor. Downstairs and upstairs are relatively close by lowering the height of the slab (the upstairs floor) that lies between the two floors, and therefore, the garden grounds can be seen even from the center of the second floor through the enclosed staircases and downstairs rooms.Save this picture!Floor PlanEntering through the entrance on the second floor, enclosed staircases are arranged within the living room that is filled with natural light from a high ceiling; the enclosed staircases look like slender structures of various heights. The space seems like being on a street in a town, and makes you feel it is on the ground level although it is on the upstairs of the multi-floor building.Save this picture!© Kentaro KuriharaEach of the four enclosed staircases connects to an individual room on the first floor. When you look up at the open ceilings from the children’s room or the bedroom (inside of the enclosed staircases) that almost reach the roof, the sky can be seen and natural light pours down from skylights above the openings in the enclosed staircases. It was intended with this house that a person be able to feel the ground and sky throughout, though it is a multi-floored building.Save this picture!SectionElimination of the discontinuity between multi-floor stairs that usually exists might result in the unfolding of a united and continuous new living environment. By interrelating with each area, including the outside, and by intersecting the living space from exterior to interior and from upstairs to downstairs, the hierarchy between the first floor and the second floor disappears and individual functions and sceneries mix together.Save this picture!© Kentaro KuriharaProject gallerySee allShow lessEFFEKT Wins Contest to Redevelop Abandoned Train Shed in Esbjerg with StreetmekkaUnbuilt ProjectThe 9 Most Controversial Buildings of All TimeArticles Share Japan CopyAbout this officeStudio VelocityOfficeFollowProductsWoodConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesRefurbishmentExtensionOkazaki-shiHousesRefurbishmentJapanPublished on November 30, 2014Cite: “House in Chiharada / Studio Velocity” 30 Nov 2014.

Final round of the Tampon Tax Fund opens

first_imgThe government is particularly encouraging applications from specialist women’s networks whose projects include making onward grants to other women’s’ charitable organisations. This will make use of the expertise in the charitable sector, ensure this round of funding reaches as many disadvantaged women and girls as possible and help the country to build back better following the pandemic. Minister for Civil Society and Youth, Baroness Barran, said: Tagged with: Funding women No further funding will be made because the tax ended on 1 January 2021 when the UK left the EU. Applications are now open for grants from the final round of the Tampon Tax Fund, worth a total of £11.25 million. Charities can apply for up to £350,000 in funding to support projects helping thousands of women and girls across the UK. “The support provided through this final round will ensure specialist charities who receive grants can support women and girls in need, and help to become more sustainable and plan for the future. The Tampon Tax Fund was introduced in 2015 in response to VAT being imposed on sanitary products by the European Union. By the end of this round more than £90 million will have been granted to support charities helping women and girls. Lower grant threshold By encouraging applications from specialist women’s networks whose projects include making onward grants to other women’s’ charitable organisations, the government is hoping to make use of the expertise in the charitable sector, and thereby ensure this round of funding reaches as many disadvantaged women and girls as possible. Advertisement In previous rounds of the Tampon Tax Fund grants had been available up to £1 million. The lower threshold for this round is designed to increase the number of projects that can benefit from it. Priority will be given to bids for work to end violence against women and girls, as well as organisations that support a network of charities.  The deadline for applications to the Tampon Tax Fund is Sunday 4 July 2021.  AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis1 Grants may be for 12 or 18-month projects, and all activities must be concluded and funds spent by 31 March 2023.   702 total views,  1 views today AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis1 Final round of the Tampon Tax Fund opens “We remain as committed as ever to ending violence against women and girls which is why this category is a priority for this round of funding, and we will continue to tackle the issue as a priority.” Howard Lake | 21 May 2021 | News About Howard Lake Howard Lake is a digital fundraising entrepreneur.

Producer Optimism About the Future Wanes

first_imgThe Ag Economy Barometer, Index of Current Conditions and Index of Future Expectations are available on the Bloomberg Terminal under the following ticker symbols: AGECBARO, AGECCURC and AGECFTEX.  Producer Optimism About the Future Wanes Facebook Twitter Home Indiana Agriculture News  Producer Optimism About the Future Wanes SHARE Producers’ optimism about the future of the agricultural economy fell in September, according to the Index of Future Expectations, a sub-index of the Purdue University/CME Group Ag Economy Barometer. The overall barometer held steady from August to September with a reading of 132 as its two sub-indices – the Index of Future Expectations and the Index of Current Conditions – shifted in opposite directions. The Index of Future Expectations fell seven points to 130 in September, while the Index of Current Conditions climbed from 122 in August to 135 in September. The Ag Economy Barometer is based on a monthly survey of 400 U.S. agricultural producers.“Although the decline in the Index of Future Expectations was modest, it could be an indication that some of the optimism that surfaced among producers in late 2016 and early 2017 is eroding,” said Jim Mintert, director of Purdue’s Center for Commercial Agriculture and principal investigator for the barometer. “One of the drivers of the jump in producer sentiment after the 2016 U.S. presidential election was a sharp increase in expectations about the U.S. economy. But the last two times the barometer survey has posed questions about the overall economy, respondents were noticeably less optimistic.”For example, on the September survey, just 40 percent of the respondents said the U.S. economy was likely to expand, a decline of almost one-third from March when nearly 60 percent said they expected expansion.Another topic on the September survey was trade agreements and negotiations, specifically the North American Free Trade Agreement, or NAFTA. The survey asked respondents whether NAFTA has been good or bad for the U.S. economy and, separately, for U.S. farmers and ranchers. In both cases, more producers than not reported that the agreement had been good. In the case of the U.S. economy, 52 percent of respondents said they thought NAFTA had been good. Fifty-nine percent reported that they thought the agreement had been good for U.S. farmers and ranchers.In contrast, back in February, 93 percent of respondents said trade was important to the U.S. agricultural economy and 80 percent of producers said trade was important to their farms.The differences among the responses to the more general trade questions and those that focused specifically on NAFTA suggest there is some uncertainty among producers about the impact of NAFTA, Mintert said. Moreover, Mintert said, just looking at the percentage of favorable responses regarding the impact of NAFTA might not tell the whole story. “An unusually large percentage of survey participants – 24 percent in the case of the U.S. economy and 20 percent in the case of farmers and ranchers – opted not to answer these two questions,” he said. “Although we can’t say for sure why producers opted not to respond to these two questions, it might also reflect a relatively high degree of uncertainty regarding NAFTA’s impact.”The full September report includes more information about producers’ sentiment toward NAFTA, their expectations for the stock market in 12 months, and what they think might happen with the U.S. economy in the next year.

Vietnamese bloggers under close watch during Trump-Kim meet in Hanoi

first_img RSF laureates support jailed Vietnamese journalist Pham Doan Trang March 1, 2019 – Updated on August 23, 2019 Vietnamese bloggers under close watch during Trump-Kim meet in Hanoi Two bloggers, Le Van Dung and Cat Linh, were arrested as they photographed and filmed the US delegation travelling through the centre of Hanoi on 27 February. The police released them in the evening after holding them for several hours.The bloggers placed under surveillance included Nguyen Lan Thang, who is known for his outspoken posts and contributions to Radio Free Asia. He said he was closely watched at his Hanoi home.Nguyen Tuong Thuy, a blogger known for his opinion pieces, received a visit at his home on 24 February from three police officers, who questioned him about his planned movements and told him not to “welcome Trump and Kim.” The blogger Dung Voa’s wife said the authorities were afraid that dissidents would accept invitations to conferences organized by embassies.“There is no justification for the arrests or surveillance of these bloggers aside from the Vietnamese regime’s obvious desire for total news control,” RSF’s Asia-Pacific desk said. “Although Hanoi used the summit to declare itself the ‘capital of peace,’ the event allowed the world to see the authoritarian excesses of a regime that is terrified of dissidents making their voice heard.”Bloggers and citizen-journalists are the constant targets of increasingly harsh persecution and a total of 29 are currently detained. Vietnam is ranked 175th out of 180 countries in RSF’s 2018 World Press Freedom Index.

The regulators have introduced macroeconomic supervisory stress tests for banks with total consolidated assets of more than $50 billion to ensure banks have adequate capital to continue operations in such an event; one of those, the Comprehensive Capital Analysis and Review (CCAR) is administered annually by the Fed. Banks with more than $50 billion in total consolidated assets are required to submit resolution plans to the Fed and the FDIC.Another key effort is the Fed’s launch of the Comprehensive Liquidity Assessment and Review (CLAR) in 2012 as an annual assessment to give supervisors of financial firms a regular opportunity to respond to evolving liquidity risks. The Fed also enhanced the rules creating enhanced risk management standards for larger U.S. banks in addition to the rules in place for capital planning, liquidity risk management, and stress testing.Regulators implemented stronger capital requirements for financial institutions of all sizes to strengthen the safety and soundness of the institutions, ensuring they will be able to absorb the shock of an economic downturn. The sixth initiative undertaken by regulators to strengthen the banking system is enhancing large bank supervisory processes through the Large Institution Supervision Coordinating Committee, which is comprised of representatives from the Federal Reserve banks and the central bank. The Committee sets supervisory policies for the 16 largest, most systemically important financial institutions in the country.The seventh initiative taken by the Fed is the supervision of systemically important nonbanks designated as such by the Financial Stability Oversight Council, as required by Section 113 of the Dodd-Frank Act. The Council has determined that financial stress at four institutions – American International Group, General Electric Capital Corporation, Prudential Financial, and MetLife – would pose a threat to U.S. financial stability and therefore require Fed supervision.For the eighth initiative as part of the effort to strengthen the banking system, the Fed is increasing its reliance on forward-looking supervision and data analytics. The ninth effort is the Volcker Rule, which was approved by the Fed and four other federal agencies in December 2013 as a common final rule to implement Section 619 of Dodd-Frank. The Volcker Rule, named for former Fed chair Paul Volcker, was intended to help firms and regulators monitor and identify proprietary trading and high-risk trading strategies that are prohibited.The 10th effort the Fed has taken to strengthen the banking system is distinguishing between risks posts by large, systemically important financial firms and risks posed by community banks.”Of course, the Federal Reserve distinguishes big banks whose weakness can shake the entire economy from small banks,” the San Francisco Fed said on its webpage. “Community banks, for example, would face an undue burden by having to meet many of the same regulatory requirements as large banks. So, regulators fashion more basic supervisory expectations for smaller, less complex banks, identifying which provisions of new regulations are relevant.”To view the entire list of 10 regulatory efforts to instill more resiliency in the nation’s banks, read the full article How Is Banking Safer Following the Financial Crisis?
