This house could be restored to its original scenery and beauty for me.”Save this picture!Floor PlanWith this statement, the nature of this project was determined: to renovate the 70-year-old house to match the 70-year-old man’s original fond memory of his earlier home where he lived until he was eighteen years old.Save this picture!© Yuji NishijimaThe surrounding village has almost fully vanished due to depopulation. The ground floor space that was originally used for large village gatherings and ceremonies has now been remodeled to be a more intimate Doma-space for meeting close friends and family.Save this picture!© Yuji NishijimaWe wanted to symbolize purity in the Doma by making a “renovation of subtraction”. By carefully stripping the wood from the ceiling joists, we create a large double-height space that uncovers the buildings pure structure and reveals the robust roof trusses above.Save this picture!© Yuji NishijimaThe wood,  with an elegant local red cedar traditional red stain that has maintained its original quality and color, is repurposed from the ceiling to the ground floor as floorboards, tabletops, and handrails. To complete the Doma and form a more dignified space, the ground floor’s original soil is solidified and a window is made high above.Save this picture!SectionBecause the man had lived in an urban center for 50 years, it was also necessary to upgrade the house into a modern living space by making a “renovation of addition”. The damaged kitchen walls were replaced with an airtight double-wall that is insulated and earthquake-resistant.Save this picture!© Yuji NishijimaThe areas of subtraction and addition are connected by cutting a large window into their intermediate wall. This connection creates a relationship of mutual awareness between the spaces, strengthening each individually and the house as a whole.Save this picture!© Yuji NishijimaOur intention in the design is to recover the original scenery and beauty of the house according to the man’s memory and further modernize the house. The existing materials reflect the past; through a minimalist method, we have carefully reorganized them to create a respectful house for the 70-year-old man’s last home.Save this picture!© Yuji NishijimaProject gallerySee allShow lessYuanyang Express We+ Co-working Space / MAT OfficeSelected Projects21st Century New York: What Would Jane Jacobs Do?Articles Share CopyAbout this officeTailored design LabOfficeFollowProductWood#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesRefurbishmentRenovationKagaJapanPublished on December 27, 2015Cite: “House Refurbishment in Kaga / Tailored design Lab” 26 Dec 2015.

Attawapiskat thirdparty manager sitting on funds for new houses NDP MP Angus

first_imgAPTN National NewsOTTAWA–The outside consultant hired by the federal Aboriginal Affairs department to manage Attawapiskat’s finances “is sitting on” funds the community needs to prepare site work for new modular homes awaiting transport to the community, according to NDP MP Charlie Angus.Angus said officials from diamond company De Beers, which operates a diamond mine near the community, are ready to prepare the site for the 22 modular homes the department purchased in response to the housing crisis in the community. The homes, built in New Brunswick, are current awaiting shipment in Moosonee, Ont.Angus said in question period Wednesday that the third-party manager has not only “cut off” funds preventing site work for the homes, but also for Attawapiskat’s education system.“Canadians expect a just resolution to the Attawapiskat crisis, but the minister prefers to punish the community,” said Angus, MP for Timmins-James Bay. “It has been two months since he has cut off all the funding to the education system and to students. He has cut off the funding that is needed to actually prepare the site so the modular homes can be brought in.”Aboriginal Affairs Minister John Duncan said the funds haven’t been released because the band leadership has refused to give the third-party manager requested information.“We have a manager in place and he wants to work with the First Nations leadership in the community,” said Duncan. “He has asked for and not received the information he needs in order to pay the bills that this member from Timmins is asking for.”Angus accused Duncan of treating the community “like a hostage population” while paying a consultant, who is based in Winnipeg “$50,000” while the technical team from De Beers “does not have a dime” to lay the ground work for the new homes.Duncan called Angus’ claims a “fabrication,” but added he could not comment on the third-party manger because the issue is before the courts.Attawapiskat has gone to Federal Court seeking to overturn the department’s decision to impose the third-party manager. A hearing was held in Toronto Tuesday and a decision is expected soon.The federal government imposed the third-party manager last November as the scandal over the dire and life-threatening housing conditions on the reserve gripped the Canadian public.Prime Minister Stephen Harper and Duncan both blamed the band leadership for creating the housing crisis by mishandling money.Attawapiskat Chief Theresa Spence has said her administration was working to rectify the band’s finances and, as proof of their commitment to transparency, posted all their financial data online.In a speech opening the Crown-First Nations Gathering last Tuesday, Harper said a “new day” had dawned on the relationship between First Nations and Canada.last_img read more

Campbell Soup plans to sell international fresh units

first_imgCampbell Soup Co. plans to focus on its core snacks and soup business in North America and sell its international business, paying down debt.The Camden, New Jersey, company said Thursday it’s working urgently to complete all the moves by next July.The planned sales will leave Campbell Soup with brands including Goldfish, Pepperidge Farm and Snyder’s of Hanover.The company announced a reorganization in May, along with the retirement of then CEO Denise Morrison, as it faces a mix of changing food trends and potentially costly tariffs on aluminum and steel.Campbell’s has been wrestling with declining soup and juice sales in a market crowded with competitors at the same time that many families are seeking foods they consider healthier and less processed.Earlier this year, Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross famously held up a can of Campbell’s soup in a CNBC interview to make the case that the Trump administration’s steel and aluminum tariffs were “no big deal.” The company has said that it expects steel and aluminum costs to rise, pushing its overall costs higher.Fourth-quarter profit plunged 70 per cent to $94 million, or 31 cents per share, as surging costs outpaced a revenue boost. Still, the results topped Wall Street expectations.Sales rose 33 per cent to $2.22 billion, but fell short of forecasts.In premarket trading, shares of the company slipped 2.4 per cent to $39.05. Shares are down nearly 17 per cent in the year to date.last_img read more

Huawei wants India to remove hurdles for 5G spectrum

first_imgShenzhen: Chinese telecom equipment major Huawei on Tuesday said that India should address the constraints in the spectrum availability to make 5G technology-based services a success in the country. Speaking to IANS on the sidelines of the Huawei Global Analysts Summit 2019 here Huawei Executive Director David Wang, who is also the company’s ICT strategy head, also pointed out that the Indian telecom market is currently faced with excess competition. Also Read – Swiggy now in 500 Indian cities, targets 100 more this year “Huawei would like to see India become more attractive in terms of 5G. We hope to see more changes in the Indian market..there is lack of spectrum for 5G operators which could affect the services. If the constraints present in the 4G is there in 5G as well, then these constraints might hamper growth,” Wang said. Huawei Deputy Chairman Ken Hu said some of the growth irritants of 4G in India should not be repeated. These problems had made it difficult for telcos to make profits with the 4G spectrum in the face of excessive competition in the telecom services market. Also Read – New HP Pavilion x360 notebook with in-built Alexa in India “If operators are struggling to make profits under 4G, I wonder how will they become profitable in 5G. Competition in Indian market is overheated”, Ken said. “My personal view is that for a very long time after 4G deployment, eMBB will be the main scenario. If operators are already struggling to gain profits on eMBB scenario under 4G, then I wonder how do they make profits under 5G””, he added. eMBB, or enhanced Mobile Broadband, is one of the three sets of used cases defined for 5G. Huawei which has faced security concerns in some parts of Europe and in the US, said that it is already in the Indian government’s invitee list for 5G trials, as and when these take place. “We were invited by the Indian government last year to conduct field trials for 5G and also participated in used cases and researches with operators in India. Huawei is deeply engaged with the Indian market on 5G,” Wang said. “India is similar to China and other growing markets in terms of requirements and ICT and is an important market for us”, he added. Huawei has undertaken 5G demo trials, alongwith Airtel and Reliance Jio, at the Indian Mobile Congress. India’s Department of Telecom so far has not taken any decision on the time period for 5G trials as the telecom operators have differences over the quantum of spectrum to be allotted and the duration of the field exercise. While the operators demand a one-year minimum period for trial, the government says it only allot spectrum for 90-day trials. The Indian telecom services market is facing severe competition, with a tariff war unleashed by Reliance Jio already affecting telcos’ bottomlines. They are already complaining about the high high reserve price of the next spe4ctrum auction slated to take place later this year. Huawei has been present in India since the last decade in the telecom equipment business and has so far worked with Airtel and BSNL. It faces completion from fellow Chinese rival ZTE, Korean major Samsung, and the European firms Ericsson and Nokia.last_img read more

2 Russian spies sentenced in Montenegro in Coup attempt

first_imgPodgorica (Montenegro): A Montenegro court on Thursday sentenced 13 people, including two Russian secret service operatives, to up to 15 years in prison after they were convicted of plotting to overthrow the Balkan country’s government and prevent it from joining NATO. Chief judge Suzana Mugosa said the two Russians, identified as Eduard Shishmakov and Vladimir Popov, were convicted of “attempted terrorism” and “creating a criminal organisation.” The two were tried in absentia. Shishmakov received a 15-year prison term while Popov got 12 years. Two leading ethnic Serb opposition politicians, Andrija Mandic and Milan Knezevic, were sentenced to five years each. The verdict said the group planned to take over parliament on election day on October 16, 2016, assassinate then-Prime Minister Milo Djukanovic and install a pro-Russia, anti-NATO leadership. Montenegro joined NATO in June 2017 as the Western military alliance’s 29th member despite strong opposition from Moscow, which considers the small Adriatic country a historic Slavic ally and is opposed to NATO’s enlargement. The Kremlin has repeatedly denied involvement in the coup attempt. Montenegro’s police thwarted the action after receiving tips from Western spy organizations, authorities said. The Russian pair, said to be members of the Russian military secret service agency GRU, coordinated the attempted coup from neighbouring Serbia, the verdict said. They were allowed by Serbia’s pro-Russia authorities to leave for Moscow despite reports that they operated with sophisticated spy equipment. The judge said that the Russians provided at least 200,000 euros for the purchase of rifles and guns. She said two tried to recruit “as many people as possible to come to the protest” and try to “change the electoral will” and “prevent Montenegro from joining NATO.”last_img read more

Calculated controversy as marketing strategy in Coca-Cola’s ad campaign

first_imgPhiladelphia – Last Sunday, Coca-Cola debuted its “America the Beautiful” commercial during the Super Bowl, taking heavy criticism in some circles for perceived defamation of a patriotic American song. The ad features bilingual American women singing the quasi-national anthem in seven languages, including English, Spanish and Senegalese, and triggered outrage and heated debate across the country – exactly as Coke intended.Some conservatives deemed the ad divisive and un-American, while most commentators took the opportunity to indulge in self-righteous grandstandingon the virtues of multiculturalism. The debate is as old as the United States, which has no official language, precisely because the country has been deeply diverse since its founding. Despite the revisionist efforts of xenophobic pundits, our history is rife with examples of linguistic pluralism, from the bilingual California state constitution to the numerous native U.S. dialects, including Louisiana Creole and Pennsylvania Dutch, and home to thousands of religious denominations (Islam, by the way, is the fourth most-practiced after Christianity, Judaism and Buddhism). In this light, the passionate defenses of diversity put forth by most commentators do more to increase their own self-worth and give legitimacy to the ravings of misguided partisans than present a truly revolutionary take on the issue. Recently, marketing strategies by Coca-Cola and other well-established corporations have preyed upon this very tendency.Cheerios presented a similarly “edgy” commercial in 2013, featuring an interracial family. The company ran a follow-up ad with the same family in response to critics, and a 30-second spot was featured in Super Bowl ads last Sunday as well. Recalling, too, JCPenney’s gay-friendly advertising, with controversy over a Father’s Day ad featuring gay parents, it is significant that older companies with broad customer bases are opting for a risky, progressive approach (not always with success – the CEO of JCPenney was fired after a 25% decrease in sales stemming from the ads).The Millennial generation, currently aged roughly 13-29, is the most ethnically diverse and progressive generation in history, and advertisers are taking note. Companies with more traditional reputations are using daring political statements to present a fresh face to younger consumers, backed by the huge revenue required to risk negative sales results. Coca-Cola’s choice to reveal their commercial during the most-watched television event in U.S. history was a move calculated to maximize the reaction that executives knew would result from an ad featuring a classic patriotic anthem sung in Spanish and other languages by immigrants, including a woman in hijab, at the height of political debate on immigration reform.Like other corporations before it, Coca-Cola has recognized the opportunity to wring more money from this controversy by expanding the original ad, running a 90-second version during the opening ceremonies of the Olympics on Friday. Americans (and commentators worldwide) should stop taking the bait. Attempts by Coke and other companies to capitalize on progressive trends belies their actual roles in decidedly anti-progressive activities, from Coca-Cola’s alleged involvement in union organizer assassinations in Colombia to its discrimination against African-American employees.A Super Bowl ad for home soda maker Soda Stream was allegedly banned by the network for a derisive comment directed at Pepsi and Coke, both sponsors of the sporting event – a troubling sign of the totalitarian-esque power of two of the world’s largest beverage producers. Coincidentally, Soda Stream is implicated in damning enterprises as well, operating factories in the occupied West Bank in violation of international law.Rather than get caught up in endless online debate with social conservatives on the merits of diversity, further enriching Coca-Cola’s advertising revenue, commentators would do well to focus on actual threats to democracy and multiculturalism worldwide. We are more concerned with pressing 1 for English than seeing beyond the polished presentations of multinational corporations, who wield actual power to influence global trends, either for human advancement or profit margins. Disingenuous advertising aside, their actions show that they will continue to choose profit until consumers demand otherwise.© Morocco World News. All Rights Reserved.

The Cost To The Mets Of Leaving Matt Harvey On The Mound

With a little help from the Kansas City Royals’ aggressive brand of opportunism, the New York Mets committed a variety of blunders en route to losing the World Series. But the one that might haunt the team most in the wake of its season-ending 7-2 loss Sunday was the acquiescence of manager Terry Collins to the demand of starting pitcher Matt Harvey to remain on the mound for the ninth inning with a 2-0 lead.Up to that point, Harvey had spun a gem of a game — eight innings of shutout ball with nine strikeouts — under pressure-packed circumstances. But he’d also thrown 101 pitches and was navigating his way through the heart of the Royals’ lineup for a dangerous fourth time. Meanwhile, Mets closer Jeurys Familia had been warming up and was about to enter the game… before Collins changed his mind after Harvey lobbied to stay in. (Harvey could be seen in the dugout shouting “no way” at the idea of being replaced.)Three batters later, Harvey had already given up one run and put the eventual tying run on base, effectively giving New York its own version of Grady Little leaving Pedro Martinez on the hill in the 2003 ALCS. But how much did it really cost the Mets at each step of the way?Under normal circumstances,1As per wOBA, computed using Baseball-Reference’s Marcel projections and using the MLB average to determine the expected runs per plate appearance in a theoretical matchup between Harvey and hitters No. 3-7 in KC’s lineup. the heart of the Kansas City order would score about 0.36 runs per inning against Harvey, giving the team a corresponding 9 percent probability of scoring at least the two runs required to tie the game. But all else being equal, pitchers going through the order a fourth time see about a 7.5 percent increase to their runs allowed per inning — meaning there was more like a 10 percent chance that the Royals would score two or more runs against Harvey at that stage of the game.Meanwhile, the same Royals batters would have been expected to score about 0.35 runs per inning against a fresh Familia, which corresponds to a 9 percent probability of plating two or more runs. A difference of 1 percentage point may not sound like much, but the start of the ninth inning is already a medium-leverage situation before a pitch is thrown, so even small changes to the probability of getting out of the inning without relinquishing the lead (and therefore winning the game) are amplified.Of course, Collins arguably made a bigger mistake when he declined to pull Harvey even after Harvey allowed a leadoff walk to Lorenzo Cain. With a tired Harvey in the game, the odds of allowing two or more runs in the inning climbed to 19 percent, as opposed to the 17 percent it would have been against Familia in the same situation. (And after Cain stole second base, those numbers became 20 percent and 18 percent.)Again, the odds were still good that the Mets would be able to record three outs before the Royals scored two runs. Eric Hosmer’s subsequent double would have been an unexpected event whether he hit it off Harvey or Familia — it was the game’s most important play in terms of win probability added — and even after that, the Royals still needed Hosmer’s remarkable heads-up baserunning (and a bad throw by Lucas Duda) to tie the ballgame and force extra innings.So it’s unfair to criticize Collins too much for leaving Harvey on the mound to start the ninth inning. But in a must-win game where every small edge matters, that fateful decision definitely shaved a few percentage points off of New York’s chances of sending the Series back to Kansas City.CORRECTION, Nov. 2, 3:15 p.m.: An earlier version of this article referred incorrectly to the difference in the probability of the Royals scoring two runs in the ninth if Harvey had been replaced by Familia at the top of the inning. The difference is 1 percentage point, not 1 percent. In addition, the article incorrectly referred to Duda’s throw to home as an error. Although the throw was wide of its mark, it was not officially scored as an error. read more
