Rather than taking a building as being one large volume, by bringing together several small volumes, and connecting small spaces together, it is possible to have green areas dotted around the site, incorporate the exterior area into the building and create rich space even with minimal space.Save this picture!© Fuji-shokai, Masahiko nishidaIn addition, by making use of corner lots and leaving them open without fenced off, you can no doubt further enhance the feeling of lush greenery.Save this picture!© Fuji-shokai, Masahiko nishidaProject gallerySee allShow lessAutomated Warehousing Facility / AKDASelected ProjectsHouse Under Eaves / MRTN ArchitectsSelected Projects Share “COPY” Architects: ALTS Design Office Area Area of this architecture project 2016 Save this picture!© Fuji-shokai, Masahiko nishida+ 13 Share Japan Year: center_img Yamashina House / ALTS Design Office Houses Yamashina House / ALTS Design OfficeSave this projectSaveYamashina House / ALTS Design Office Photographs ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/797221/yamashina-house-alts-design-office Clipboard CopyHouses•Mukō-shi, Japan ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/797221/yamashina-house-alts-design-office Clipboard Photographs:  Fuji-Shokai / Masahiko Nishida Manufacturers Brands with products used in this architecture project CopyAbout this officeALTS Design OfficeOfficeFollowProductWood#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesMukō-shiJapanPublished on October 13, 2016Cite: “Yamashina House / ALTS Design Office” 13 Oct 2016.

Ryan Martin’s Indiana Ag Forecast for July 17, 2017

first_img Facebook Twitter Ryan Martin’s Indiana Ag Forecast for July 17, 2017 A mostly dry start to the week this week, with no serious precipitation action until Thursday up north, and then over more of the state on Friday. The stagnant remains of an old frontal boundary over central Indiana lit up a few showers and thunderstorms yesterday, and we won’t completely rule that out today either. But, in general, we are looking for fairly nice, dry weather over the next 3 days. Temps will be climbing through midweek.Thursday, we have some moisture moving into the northern third of the state, an offshoot of a frontal complex that is more bent on hitting MI and the great lakes region. This will trigger rain totals of a few hundredths to perhaps .3” over areas from US 24 northward, and in far NW Indiana, we can see some rains over half an inch early on Thursday in southern Lake and southern Porter counties. The rest of the state stays dry. On Friday, a slow, sagging trough moves through the rest of the state, bringing rain totals of .1”-.5” with coverage at 50%. These rains will leave a lot of areas wanting for more. The above map shows a snapshot of potential precipitation at midday on Friday.The weekend shows an active precipitation track, mostly over the northern half to third of the state through Saturday and most of Sunday. Areas north of I0-70 can see rain totals of a few hundredths to half an inch over both days combined with coverage at no better than 60%. Southern Indiana continues with no significant ran chances. Temps remain above normal.We dry down again for next week, with no significant rain chances anywhere in Indiana for Monday through Wednesday. In the extended window, we do have a weak front moving in around the 28th with some potential rain totals up to half an inch and coverage at 60%, but the rest of the 11-16 day forecast period is dry, with temps above normal. While we still do not see what we would term “oppressive” heat building in, we do think that all of the coming 2 weeks will be above normal to some scale, and highs from the mid-80s to low 90s will be pretty much expected for most of the rest of the month…beginning with our slow build this week.

Mourning that vexes the future

first_imgThe loss of a loved one is an especially painful and disruptive event. A study by Harvard researchers shows that, for a small number of people, the sorrow that comes with the death of a spouse or partner can lead to problems not only in remembering the past, but also in imagining the future.As described in a paper published last month in Clinical Psychological Science, Professor of Psychology Richard McNally and clinical psychology graduate student Don Robinaugh found that while people suffering from complicated grief — a syndrome marked by intense, debilitating emotional distress and yearning for a lost loved one — had difficulty envisioning specific future events, those problems disappeared when they were asked to imagine an alternate future that included their lost loved one.“When someone loses a spouse, they lose not just the person they spend every day with, but the person they’re planning on spending the next 40 years or more with. So they’re losing all those events they imagined in their future — the birth of their first grandchild, the day they celebrate their retirement together, or their 50th wedding anniversary,” Robinaugh said.“Our sense is that people with complicated grief continue to imagine those events. They continue to picture what their life would have been, and they deeply yearn for that counterfactual future,” he said. “It’s a future that’s no longer possible. But it’s one they still strongly, strongly desire, so when we ask them to imagine these events, they are readily able to do so. In contrast, they have a much more difficult time when we ask them to imagine their future without the deceased.”To get at questions of how complicated grief might affect people’s ability to recall the past and envision what’s to come, Robinaugh and McNally recruited nearly three dozen volunteers, all of whom had lost a spouse or partner in the last one to three years, and identified more than a dozen who were suffering from complicated grief.All the study participants were then asked them to perform what researchers call an “autobiographical memory task.”Developed in the 1980s as a way to probe how conditions such as depression and post-traumatic stress disorder affect memory, the test asks subjects to recall specific memories based on certain keywords. As an example, Robinaugh said, researchers might start with the keyword “happy” and ask people to recall a time when they felt that way.“People who suffer from depression or post-traumatic stress disorder have a difficult time recalling specific memories on this task,” Robinaugh said. “If we ask them to describe a specific time when they felt happy, they may say they’re happy when they watch TV, or they were happy last year, as opposed to describing a specific event like the day their daughter was born, or when their son graduated high school.”When researchers at the University of Cambridge administered the test to patients with complicated grief, they uncovered a surprising result. When asked for memories from their own lives, people suffering from complicated grief struggled, but when asked to recall events from the life of their lost loved one, they performed significantly better.“We wanted to see if those findings would extend to how people thought about the future. One of the major clinical features of complicated grief is a sense the future is hopeless or empty, suggesting they may have difficulty imaging their future,” Robinaugh said. “In addition, there has been a great deal of work by professors Daniel Schacter, Randy Buckner, and others demonstrating that people’s ability to think about the past is very closely related to their ability to think about the future.”In the study devised by Robinaugh and McNally, participants were asked to perform two versions of the test. In the first, they imagined specific events that might happen in the future, while the second asked them to imagine events that might have occurred in the future if their loved one had not died.“When imagining events that included their loved one, patients typically described landmark life events,” Robinaugh said. “They would say things like, we would be happy when our first child is born, when we’re celebrating the day I retire, or when we finally buy our dream house. For people with complicated grief, these events with their loved ones were much easier to imagine than were events that could at this point realistically occur in their future.”Researchers also tested patients’ ability to recall the past by asking them to relate a memory in which a lost loved one was present, and another in which he or she was not. As in previous studies, Robinaugh said, those suffering from complicated grief performed better when recalling an incident that included the deceased.“We are just scratching the surface in terms of our understanding of this deficit in the ability to imagine the future,” Robinaugh said, “but we hope that helping people with complicated grief to better imagine their future will have some therapeutic benefit.“Even years after the loss, people with complicated grief maintain an identity that’s very closely entwined with the deceased,” he said. “Their life becomes very constricted. They don’t want to go out because they worry something might remind them of the loss and consequently trigger a lot of painful emotion. They often don’t want to become emotional in front of other people, so they stop seeing friends and family members.“This process of imagining the future can open things up,” he added. “It allows them to think about what their life might look like, and the things that might, at some point, make them happy, or that might give them a sense of meaning and purpose.”last_img read more

NWS Confirms Tornado Touched Down In Osgood

first_imgA home on Finks Road in Osgood suffered damage from an EF-1 Tornado on Thursday.The National Weather Service confirmed than a tornado touched down in Osgood Thursday night.Meteorologist Ken Haydu conducted a storm survey Friday near Osgood that revealed an EF-1 tornado estimated at 90 mph touched down at Finks Road.It forced a home off of its foundation while blowing out multiple windows and causing exterior damage.Two people were inside the home when the storm occurred.The homeowner and her granddaughter were home at the time of the storm. They both sought shelter in an interior room of the house, which could have been a life-saving decision.“If you don’t have a basement, the bathroom as an interior room is the safest place to be,” said Ken Haydu, meteorologist-in-chief of the National Weather Service Office in Wilmington, Ohio.“Ripley County now has a very clear example of getting in that interior room and saving yourself from injury.”Luckily, no one was injured as a result of the storms on Thursday.A barn on West C.R. 750 N in Osgood was damaged from wind speeds of 70 mphThe twister lost momentum less than a mile up the road when it damaged a barn on C.R. 750 North and knocked down power lines. At that point, the tornado was categorized as an EF-0 with an estimated wind speed of 70 mph.Responding agencies were Napoleon Volunteer Fire Department, Ripley County Sheriff’s Office and Ripley County EMA.The high winds and rain attributed with the storm led many residents throughout Southeastern Indiana to seek shelter in their basement or interior room of their home. According to Haydu, ninety percent of tornadoes occur between noon and midnight.When severe weather strikes the area, tune into Country 103.9 WRBI.last_img read more

Petrozzi wins Welsh title by nine shots

first_img21 May 2017 Petrozzi wins Welsh title by nine shots England’s Gian-Marco Petrozzi has won the Welsh open stroke play championship in great style – leading from wire to wire and finishing nine shots clear of the field. The 20-year-old from Trentham in Staffordshire was 13-under for the 72 holes at The Vale. He set out his stall with an opening round of seven-under 66 and added scores of 69, 70, 74. “I’m chuffed,” said Petrozzi, an England A squad player. “A really good first round put me in a great position and then I just used my experience and played solid golf from there.” His game was in great shape all round, but his putter was especially hot and helped keep him far in front of the field. He led by four after the first round, seven after the second and nine after 54 holes. Today, in the final two rounds, the putter helped him make a lot of par saves. “I didn’t strike the ball as good as the first two days but I kept it steady and putted really well, mopped up things well. “I just tried to play my own game and not look at anyone else. I carried on doing everything I’d done over the first two days and it just took care of itself.” This is Petrozzi’s first big win and he commented: “It’s been coming. All of last season and the start of this season I’ve been playing good golf. I knew I had it in there, I just needed to prove to myself that I could cross the line. “I’m over the moon with this and hopefully it catches the eye of the Walker Cup selectors. That’s my goal for the end of the year and hopefully this will put my name in the hat.” The runner up was another Staffordshire player, Jack Gaunt (Drayton Park), who finished on four-under, a stroke ahead of Walker Cup squad player Jack Davidson of Wales.
