The site of project locates in the region south of Yangtze River, this region is the motherland of Chinese triditional landscape art. The Architect aims to reflect the modern construction technology and living comfort, though this project trying to discuss about how to satisfy the spiritual needs for those Chinese who still really treasured Chinese trditional Cultures of living and abandoning themselves to the nature, to be retired from the noisy world. Therefore, on the existing long and narrow site, architect purposely enlarged the longitudinal scale of circulation, scenic views and even timeline though the strategic transition and composition of spaces, in order to form a spacial pattern of wide depth spaces.The architectural archetype of this project originates from the triditional Chinese architectual pavillion element named “Ting”, which normally constructed from wooden beams, this project was constructed from steel structural system, as bending structural system as wooden beams. The huge overhanging roofs extend the boundaries of architecture into the courtyard and gardens. Finally, this project delivered a consequence that a garden house with three different hierarchies of deep depth spaces, deep³ courtyard.Save this picture!© Shengliang SuPreface_ Hierarchy First _ Deep¹There was always a tradition of creating beautiful Private Gardens in regions south of the Yangtze River。The tradition was kept, only difference is that the characters of Garden masters are changed. They are not as the literati in the old times that only abandoned themselves to the Nature, but also the modern co-workers having multi-relatives with the whole society. As the clients, their requirements for gardens are not making private tour of scenic spots any more, but recover their original simplicity. So the manifesto of Deep³courtyard is giving a media for the old Chinese saying “living back into nature” to relate the reality and the idealist pursue.Save this picture!© Shengliang Su【Pattern】_ Hierarchy Second _ Deep2In particular site planning, the start point is not the solid spaces massing layout, but void spaces. “Void” means scenic and also functional, it could be courtyard or part of architecture. “Void” is the basic unit of site organization, different void spaces would be insert in site based on using demands, then separated the boundaries of inside and outside in every “void”. Finally, we figure out four architecture units and ten small courtyard with different scales and shapes. Save this picture!© Su ArchitectsThe whole architecture consists of multiple courtyards that overlaid through the longitudinal axis. There are three main layers of the courtyard spatial pattern, first layer is functionally for entry, lobby and living room. This first layer was designed for a hundred years elder for his daily living. Considering for his convenience, designer placed his living function spaces in first layer. In the meanwhile, using a continued longitudinal wall from inside till outside to separate the living-room and bedroom. In order to emphasis this separation, architectural massing also followed this variation.Save this picture!In the second layer, to make the water pond as a core space, surrounding is for private living room. It is divided by a “T” shape opening from the first layer. The upper part of this opening use wooden grid hollow out to present the invisible structural beam. In this layer, a “ting”—Chinese opening pavilion is placed beside the waterscape which related the inside and outside, front and rear of the garden. In this layer, another longitudinal wall separated the private space of guest courtyard.Save this picture!© Shengliang SuThe third layer is the playground and back garden for the garden master, due to the requirement from client, a small basketball play area was placed. All these tree layers, one after one, relate to each other, formed a consequence of deep spatial perception in this garden house.Save this picture!© Shengliang SuVista_ Hierarchy Third _ Deep3There are blurry boundaries between each courtyard in this estate, but a twist movement connect them. The reflection of them are various, covered, inserted, opened or divided. In the tour of courtyards, the sight is continuing change, while every spot would show the indistinct scenes, the sights would lead the steps of exploration. The twist movement extends the spatial perception of deep on this existing rectangular site.Save this picture!© Shengliang SuHousingIn a garden house estate, architecture itself is not the key point. In tradition Chinese garden, a simple architectural logic lead pieces of space placed at where it should be. Each of them was given different name based on their different functions and forms, such as ting—pavilion, tai—platform, ge—tower with terraces, xie—pavilion on terrace. All pieces used same construction system, and in proper scale of massing.Save this picture!© Shengliang SuSave this picture!Floor PlanSave this picture!© Shengliang SuIn Deep³ courtyards, the boundaries and layouts of architecture was identified by courtyards, the roof solution is the only question left. Chinese ancient architecture structural system had been found very clearly, as the modern post-and-lintel system, beam and columns supporting the thick roof deck system, the wall just as separation screen was not part of supporting system. Save this picture!© Shengliang SuArchitect considered the warm rainy climate in southern regions of China, people stay in exterior space even more than interior space. So the overhang roof eave became an import element, since it is a nice shelter that keeping out rain and shading of direct sunshine, but keep ventilation. We want this kind of covering could be light and invisible, so the real architectural massing hiding in courtyards through deep overhang roof.Save this picture!© Shengliang SuFor distinguish covering and separation both on architectural form and construction system, the functional massing are using brick-concrete structure, roof is using steel structure. The roof consists of two shell plates joggled together to form the windows face north to increase ventilation and daylighting.Save this picture!SectionThe excellent visual effects must come from structural accuracy. In order to have the huge overhang roof looks especial lighter, we did try some special design for structure and construction, to achieve the goal with make sure not losing the effect of insulation system.Save this picture!© Shengliang SuWaterscapeThe area of water pond garden original was a small ground fish pond behind the existing house. After refit and enlarge, the pond already connects to the water channel on the east side. For this whole estate, only east side open to the waterscape without bounding wall. The characters of traditional Chinese garden are introversion and sealing with clear boundaries, but we want the courtyards could get interaction and breathe from the surroundings, reading the breathing rhythm sending from the waterscape, the sights, even the context.Save this picture!© Shengliang SuThere is no drain down pipe from the roof which was designed on purpose, the grounding quartzite were cut with several gaps, to expose the beautiful cobblestones. The cobblestones may not scream to gather notice from visitors in the sunny day, but if you have the luck to visit this estate during a raining day, there would be an amazing image presenting for you. The rain water drain down from the drain hole set on the roof, and drop off into the gaps paved with cobblestones. This corporation of nature (both rain and gravity) and artificial design would form a raining paravent connecting the roof and ground through a beautiful and gentle way.Save this picture!© Shengliang SuPedestrianWe already got used to the super flat and straight road, and almost forgot how up and down, fade in and out of the trail road through the hills. The pedestrian actually relate to our bodies, it is the median surface between human being and the nature that we were navigated through eyes and touched by feet. The road was created though people’s walks, so we should look back to our feet, and to modify the way we are going to pass. The garden is the modified nature, there are may not the very strong boundaries from nature and artificial creation.Save this picture!© Su ArchitectsPostscriptIn the old times, Chinese garden houses were kind of wonderlands designed by garden masters to achieve their idealist living spaces, this is the realization of architecture from literal description and art works to be constructed. In the meanwhile, as part of modern world, we have the same questions to ask ourselves, what kind of living condition would be our wonderlands? This question is the core clue leading the whole design and building process of this project, the answer wouldn’t be clarified until it be done.Save this picture!© Shengliang SuAfter this project was built, once we saw a Chinese Ancient art painting named “the Dongshan Sizhu diagram”, we found the resonance of design concept and practice. The living image made 700 years ago had a silent transforming influence of the practice today. The special orders, key elements, even the architectural prototype in the painting were all reflected to our work. Save this picture!© Shengliang SuAs moderns, when we create our garden, we could not like ancients, since all living condition and environment had changed, we know about skyscraper, we know garden villa, we know living in nature, but when we were amazed by the crush that we saw the idealist living spaces potentially in our minds which hiding in an ancient painting, we treat this as a gift trip back home.Project gallerySee allShow lessBird & Bird London / MCM ArchitectureSelected ProjectsHotel Mapp / JYCArchitect + DCDAssociatesSelected ProjectsProject locationAddress:Jiangsu, ChinaLocation to be used only as a reference.

Charity Commission warns charities of direct debit fraud scams

first_img Howard Lake | 21 January 2010 | News Charity Commission warns charities of direct debit fraud scams RedressUnder the direct debit guarantee scheme, if the charity has been wrongly paying a direct debit, it can reclaim this money from the bank. It is then the bank’s responsibility to reclaim this money from the supplier.A spokesperson for Bacs Payment Schemes Limited said: “Paperless Direct Debit is a highly reliable, safe and cost effective method for organisations, including charities, to collect regular payments. Instances of Direct Debit fraud are very low when compared with alternative payment methods like cheque or card.“We treat any instances of Direct Debit fraud extremely seriously, even when they take place rarely. We are pleased to work with the Charity Commission in providing this alert to the charity sector”.Bacs added its own advice:Organisations setting up non-paper Direct Debit Instructions must verify the identity of the Payer prior to collecting any money; the methods used vary depending upon the associated commercial risk – all are agreed and approved by the organisation’s sponsoring bank.For organisations providing services and goods, for example, Bacs makes a list of stringent verification measures available in a secure area of its website. However, for obvious reasons, and in the interest of fraud prevention, these measures must remain confidential.Organisations collecting by Direct Debit must also confirm, in writing, the Instruction given by the customer within three days of setting up the Direct Debit. Alternatively the organisation must write and give Advance Notice of the transaction, normally ten working days prior to it leaving the customer’s account. In line with standard banking industry recommendations, all consumers are advised to keep their personal details secure, regularly check their bank statements, monitor their bank balance, open all post and dispose of it with care.The Charity Commission publishes information about charity trustees’ legal duties and responsibilities for ensuring strong financial controls in its ./guidance CC8 Internal Financial Controls for Charities.www.charitycommission.gov.uk About Howard Lake Howard Lake is a digital fundraising entrepreneur.

The Charity Commission is warning charities of the danger of fraudulent direct debits being set up from charity bank accounts. It has been made aware of a number of instances where this has happened, resulting in the abuse of charity funds.What can charities do? The Commission is publishing the following advice for charities on its website:PreventionWrite to your bank and inform them that no further direct debits should be set up without the specific approval of certain named authorised personnel.DetectionYou should ensure that you regularly check your bank statements and ensure the bank statements reconcile with the charity records. Any unexplained or unusual direct debits must be investigated.

Illegal terror against im/migrants continues

first_imgBy B.L.S.San Antonio, Texas“They told me not to tell my family where I was,” a Haitian asylum-seeker recounted. “I heard people being taken away in the hall [of the hotel] screaming, ‘I’m not going! I’m not going!’”An im/migrant Haitian mother and her daughter are incarcerated by ICE in a hotel room in San Antonio on July 1.In the month of July, Immigration and Customs Enforcement held nearly 200 immigrant children, including babies and toddlers, in hotels in El Paso and McAllen, Texas, as well as Phoenix, Ariz. This violated a decades-old court settlement that was meant to protect children from poor conditions in detention and also limit the length of time that a child is held in ICE custody. After 20 days, children are supposed to be released to a family sponsor who is living in the U.S. More often than not, this settlement is discounted by ICE. While detainees were being held in hotels, ICE allowed families to make one phone call, but instructed them not to share their location with family members on the phone. These families were denied all information, including the name of the hotel where they were being detained and the location. They only received vague answers from the officers guarding the hallways. A reason was not provided about why they were taken to the hotel or the amount of time they would be detained. Families were left anxious, not knowing if they would be deported or if they would eventually be able to see their family and friends who were waiting for them in the U.S.These families were secretly taken to deliberately undisclosed areas, making it impossible for them to receive any sort of legal services because no one knows of their location. Similar to what happened at the Portland protests, the government has intentionally used unmarked vans to transport these families. They have been taken to unofficial holding facilities, such as these hotels, to house them until their untraceable expulsion. This is consistent with ICE practice; for instance, detention centers are often built in isolated areas, making it difficult for attorneys to offer their services.Misusing pandemic crisisThe current administration has abused U.S. code Title 42 amid the pandemic in order to shut down the border and turn away all immigrants. Since March, the U.S. Customs and Border Protection has expelled over 105,000 immigrants under the guise of public health concerns. (tinyurl.com/yaostc7z) This expulsion may include many refugees fleeing possible death in their home countries. Their right to be screened for an opportunity to apply for asylum in the U.S. has been disregarded by government officials. The inequity and overpolicing that Black communities face in the U.S. has also made its way into immigrant detention. According to a study by researchers Franco, Patler and Reiter, Black immigrants are six times more likely to be sent to solitary confinement. (osf.io/preprints/socarxiv/zdy7f/) According to RAICES, an immigrant rights nonprofit based in Texas, the amount paid for an average bond was about $10,500. For Haitian immigrants, the average bond paid was much higher, about $16,170. The majority of the families who have been hidden in hotels have been Black immigrant families.ICE was ostensibly formed to protect the U.S. from terrorism in the period after Sept. 11, 2001. After nearly 20 years, the agency has caused an extensive amount of trauma to children and families by separating them. Its agents have been accused of sexually assaulting thousands of children and have also mentally and physically abused adult immigrants. The government treats every single immigrant as a criminal threat, greeting them at the border with handcuffs and jailing them for seeking a better and safer life. But ICE is the real criminal. FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

USDA Announces Conservation Incentives for Working Grass, Range and Pasture Lands

first_imgHome Indiana Agriculture News USDA Announces Conservation Incentives for Working Grass, Range and Pasture Lands USDA Announces Conservation Incentives for Working Grass, Range and Pasture Lands Facebook Twitter SHARE By Andy Eubank – Jul 16, 2015 Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack has announced that beginning September 1, farmers and ranchers can apply for financial assistance to help conserve working grasslands, rangeland and pastureland while maintaining the areas as livestock grazing lands.The initiative is part of the voluntary Conservation Reserve Program (CRP), a federally funded program that for 30 years has assisted agricultural producers with the cost of restoring, enhancing and protecting certain grasses, shrubs and trees to improve water quality, prevent soil erosion and reduce loss of wildlife habitat. In return, the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) provides participants with rental payments and cost-share assistance. CRP has helped farmers and ranchers prevent more than 8 billion tons of soil from eroding, reduce nitrogen and phosphorous runoff relative to cropland by 95 and 85 percent respectively, and even sequester 43 million tons of greenhouse gases annually, equal to taking 8 million cars off the road.“A record 400 million acres and 600,000 producers and landowners are currently enrolled in USDA’s conservation programs. The Conservation Reserve Program has been one of the most successful conservation programs in the history of the country, and we are pleased to begin these grasslands incentives as we celebrate the program’s 30th year,” said Vilsack. “This is another great example of how agricultural production can work hand in hand with efforts to improve the environment and increase wildlife habitat.”The CRP-Grasslands initiative will provide participants who establish long-term, resource-conserving covers with annual rental payments up to 75 percent of the grazing value of the land. Cost-share assistance also is available for up to 50 percent of the covers and other practices, such as cross fencing to support rotational grazing or improving pasture cover to benefit pollinators or other wildlife. Participants may still conduct common grazing practices, produce hay, mow, or harvest for seed production, conduct fire rehabilitation, and construct firebreaks and fences.With the publication of the CRP regulation today, the Farm Service Agency will accept applications on an ongoing basis beginning Sept. 1, 2015, with those applications scored against published ranking criteria, and approved based on the competiveness of the offer. The ranking period will occur at least once per year and be announced at least 30 days prior to its start. The end of the first ranking period will be Nov. 20, 2015.Later this week, USDA will also announce state-by-state allotments for the State Acres for Wildlife Enhancement (SAFE). Through SAFE, also a CRP initiative, up to 400,000 acres of additional agricultural land across 37 states will be eligible for wildlife habitat restoration funding. The additional acres are part of an earlier CRP wildlife habitat announcement made by Secretary Vilsack. Currently, more than 1 million acres, representing 98 projects, are enrolled in SAFE.To learn more about participating in CRP-Grasslands or SAFE, visit www.fsa.usda.gov/crp or consult with the local Farm Service Agency county office. To locate a nearby Farm Service Agency office, visit https://offices.usda.gov.The CRP-Grasslands program was made possible by the 2014 Farm Bill, which builds on historic economic gains in rural America over the past six years while achieving meaningful reform and billions of dollars in savings for the taxpayer. Since enactment, USDA has made significant progress to implement each provision of this critical legislation, including providing disaster relief to farmers and ranchers; strengthening risk management tools; expanding access to rural credit; funding critical research; establishing innovative public-private conservation partnerships; developing new markets for rural-made products; and investing in infrastructure, housing and community facilities to help improve quality of life in rural America.
