This modest, 880 square-foot cabin for a young family sits at the end of an old logging road, its compact volume hugging the edge of a small clearing in a remote Wisconsin forest.Save this picture!© John J. MacaulayThe tight budget required a rigorously simple structure.  In order to minimize the building’s footprint and take advantage of the sloped site, the horizontally organized components of a traditional cabin compound – typically an open-plan longhouse with communal living space, an outhouse, and a freestanding toolshed – were reconfigured and stacked vertically.  The bottom level, carved into the hill and accessible from the clearing, houses a small workshop, equipment storage, and a washroom, providing the infrastructural base for the living quarters above.  A wood-slatted entry door opens to stairs that lead up to the open living hall centered around a wood-burning stove and bracketed by a simple galley kitchen and a pair of small, open sleeping rooms.Save this picture!Exploded AxonSave this picture!© John J. MacaulayFloor-to-ceiling curtains on either end of the living hall can be moved or retracted, their undulating fabric and delicate texture adding a sensual dimension to the crisp interior palette.  Depending on their arrangement, the curtains can provide privacy for the sleeping rooms, open them up to the main living space, or screen the kitchen when not in use.  Large-scale lift-slide apertures along the sides of the living hall offer extensive views of the forest and direct access to an informal hillside terrace.  In the summer, the apertures become screened openings, virtually transforming the living hall into a covered outdoor room and facilitating a high degree of cross-ventilation that eliminates the need for mechanical conditioning.  A small study, originally conceived as another room adjacent to the living hall, was instead stacked on top of it, creating an intimate, elevated observatory with treetop views.Save this picture!SectionsThe meticulously detailed project takes advantage of readily available materials used in the region’s farmstead architecture. On the outside, exposed concrete, cedar, anodized metal, and cementitious plaster all echo the muted, earthy hues of the surrounding forest and rock formations.  The material palette extends to the inside, where integrally colored polished concrete floors on the two main levels provide sufficiently durable surfaces against the periodic abuse from cross country skies, dogs, and muddy hiking boots.  Walls, ceilings, and built-in cabinets are painted white, lightening up the interiors during the long winter months and providing a quiet, neutral foreground against which nature’s complex and ever-changing tableau, carefully framed by the cabin’s large openings, can unfold.Save this picture!© John J.

STONE: New Year, new you!

first_img It’s time to put the year 2020 in our rearview mirror. A new year brings a fresh start, a re-boot if you will, to reflect on past transgressions and make wiser decisions ahead. One of the ways we do this is going through the perennial motions of making New Year’s resolutions. Unfortunately, these resolutions often fall flat by end of January…maybe stretching into February if we’re lucky. However, New Year’s resolutions don’t have to have such an abrupt and disappointing ending. Following a few simple tips can improve the likelihood of finally hitting those goals. The most effective way to avoid failure is to have a game plan designed to address potential pitfalls that would otherwise compromise your success. Since goals take time, effort, and commitment to reach; it’s not reasonable to expect something monumental such as losing a significant amount of weight or quitting smoking to suddenly happen overnight. While we wish for quick results, pushing too many goals at one time can lead to a loss of focus. If its pounds you aim to drop, don’t focus necessarily on the exact amount of weight you want to lose. Instead, set goals more likely to be achieved…such as drinking water instead of soda, pick three days each week to increase physical activity, and stay away from fast food for a month. Taking small steps leads to positive lifestyle changes in the long term which is key. Include a friend in your endeavors, preferably one that is a motivator rather than an enabler. A true friend will help you stay the course and vice versa. Sharing each other’s progress is a great way to recognize results and remind each other of the benefits you set out to achieve to begin with. No one wants to let a friend down, so use each other as a support system to keep on task. Simple strategies such as grocery shopping together, going for a run, taking a walk, or just revisiting why you set your goals are all examples of how friends can help maintain the intensity needed to see it through. Schedule time to reach your goals. Whether your preferred reminders come from a computer, smartphone, or post-it notes; include them as part of each day. This effortless task will help carve necessary time in gaining momentum in fulfilling your success. As busy as we are, there still is time throughout the day to spend on your goals. If it’s important enough, you’ll find a way to take a care of it. But, it’s ultimately your responsibility to schedule it within the hustle and bustle of everyday activities. Hitting your initial goals proves you can do it. The prize of seeing it through and the results that follow can be highly motivating to build upon additional success. Remember, modifying a lifestyle, that has been ingrained over years, takes time and repetitive acts to change. With this in mind, don’t forget to reward yourself. Celebrating victories large and small encourage us to press on. Rewards can come in different forms…be creative, but don’t give in to getting the chosen incentive until your goal is complete. Continue to set new goals and reward yourself each time to build upon the positive changes your making for your life. Bottom line is to be realistic by keeping your resolutions simple, straight forward, and open to continued lifestyle improvements. The building blocks for continued success start with the initial small steps in allowing you to make the big changes you’ve always wanted to achieve. Here’s to 2021 finally being your year to make it happen. Have a blessed, prosperous, and especially healthy New Year!

Next Stage of Economic Recovery Will Be ‘Unprecedented’

According to April 2021 commentary from the Fannie Mae Economic and Strategic Research (ESR) Group, a strong rebound to housing and the greater economy is likely to follow.Full-year 2021 real GDP growth expectations improved to 6.8%, the team reported, including 9.1% annualized growth in Q2, due predominately, they say, to the continued easing of virus-related gathering restrictions and stimulus-driven consumer spending.New home sales fell 18.2% over the month while pending sales declined by 10.6%. Existing home sales, which lag contract signings by about 30 to 45 days, on average, will therefore likely be considerably weaker in March and perhaps April, the ESR reported.Those stats come following a slight downward revision to the forecast due to continued supply constraints and a modestly higher outlook for mortgage rates, noted the ESR.”The ramp-up we’d previously forecast for the economy is underway, as evidenced by, among other measures, increasing airline passenger reservations and restaurant bookings,” said Doug Duncan, SVP and Chief Economist. “Vaccinations are continuing to roll out, and consumers appear to be increasingly looking toward post-pandemic life. While inflationary pressure is growing, our latest forecast update suggests that in the near term interest rates will remain steady at borrower-friendly levels. In fact, despite the recent increases, mortgage rates remain near historical lows, which we expect will help maintain strong housing demand in 2021.Duncan added: “An above-average pace of renters converting to first-time homebuyers is continuing, with many migrating into the suburbs from denser urban areas. However, strong consumer demand for housing continues to hit up against a lack of supply, limiting sales and bolstering home prices, which we expect will further compound affordability concerns in the months ahead as homebuilders also wrestle with input supply restraints.”Some risks lie ahead, the Fannie Mae team reports.”The pandemic-driven recession of 2020 was unprecedented, and so too is this next stage of economic recovery,” the researchers noted. “While growth is clearly accelerating, consumers’ eagerness to return to previously restricted activities is somewhat uncertain, as is their willingness to tap into the nearly $2 trillion in built-up savings from the past year. There are other meaningful risks to the macro forecast, as well, including ongoing supply chain disruptions, most notably semiconductors (and related auto manufacturing), and shipping bottlenecks.”They expect these factors to be resolved this year, however, if not,  they will likely hold back the pace of growth.Their outlook, the researchers say, is tinted with macroeconomic unpredictability.”If a combination of surging consumer demand coupled with ongoing supply constraints leads to higher inflation, the Fed may be compelled to tighten monetary policy more quickly than we currently expect,” they said. “Future developments in fiscal policy, notably a potential infrastructure and tax bill, have not been incorporated into our current baseline forecast. Lastly, COVID variants that resist current vaccines, or further complications regarding the vaccination roll out, cannot be ruled out.”And the housing sector is even more dubious. Aside from supply and demand issues, uncertainty surrounds the timing and implications of the end of the forbearance policies and how those might impact the number and nature of home sales.”However, we believe continued improvement in the labor market and higher levels of home equity will likely help limit distressed sales,” the ESR team concludes.Their full report is available at FannieMae.com.

USA: PSNS & IMF, NNSY Recognized as 21st Century Registered Apprenticeship Trailblazers and Innovators

Apprentices are paid to attend all required curriculum. The educational partners provide accredited academic courses that result in an academic certificate and/or degree. Following completion of the required academics, apprentices document on-the-job learning and complete the trade theory and skills training which result in journey-level certificates from both the Department of Labor and the Department of the Navy.PSNS & IMF’s apprentice program began in 1901. It has produced nearly 9,000 graduates throughout its 111 years of continuous operations. The program’s tie to secondary education began in 1925, and now each graduate receives an associate degree in technical arts from educational partner Olympic College. The program currently has 812 apprentices in 28 trades related to the repair and maintenance of the naval fleet.NNSY also operates one of the nation’s oldest and most vital apprentice programs, observing its 100th anniversary Jan 2, 2013. Registered by the United States Department of Labor in 1970, it currently trains approximately 700 apprentices in 24 skilled occupations each year. NNSY partners with Tidewater Community College to provide the required academic courses. The NNSY apprenticeship program has been recognized twice in the past five years by the Virginia Apprenticeship Council for its outstanding apprentices.[mappress]Naval Today Staff, July 27, 2012 Industry news Share this article View post tag: Registered View post tag: Labor View post tag: US View post tag: Apprenticeship View post tag: Innovators View post tag: Department View post tag: 21st Back to overview,Home naval-today USA: PSNS & IMF, NNSY Recognized as 21st Century Registered Apprenticeship Trailblazers and Innovators View post tag: PSNS View post tag: Trailblazers View post tag: IMF July 27, 2012last_img read more

It’s an excellent opportunity to find out how things work. Make Republicans UncomfortableBy David Leonhardt Renewable Energy Day, January 7, 2020. Activists met with their legislators to ask them to transition Indiana to renewable power. Rep. Hakeem Jeffries, D-N.Y., pushed back on the GOP’s argument that Democrats are using the impeachment procedures to oust President Donald Trump from office, and said that the impeachment trial is about the high crimes and misdemeanors he committed through his office. Jeffries cited the work Democrats have done with the President on bipartisan bills that addressed lowering healthcare costs and criminal justice reform. “We don’t hate this President, but we love the Constitution,” he said. “We love our Democracy.” Trump was impeached by the House of Representatives in December on two articles – abuse of power and obstruction of Congress. The Senate will now decide whether to convict trump of those charges and remove him from office, or acquit him. Indiana has the 3rd worst maternal mortality* in the country, a rate that puts Indiana on par with Iraq and Samoa. From 2013 – 2017, the U.S. had a maternal mortality rate of 29.6 out of 100,000 births; Indiana had a maternal mortality rate of 50.2 out of 100,000 births. Mexico, at 38 per 100,000, had a lower maternal mortality rate than the state of Indiana from 2013 – 2017. To give those numbers some perspective, in 2015, Australia had 6, Germany had 6, the United Kingdom had 9.Likewise, our infant mortality rate is the 7th highest in the country.In June, Democratic State Senator Jean Breaux introduced an amendment that would combat these abysmal numbers by providing Medicaid resources for pregnant women. But the decision was voted down along party lines, with 100% of Republican senators voting against women and children.Note: Should you attempt to find data on maternal mortality rates from Indiana on the State Department of Health website, the data is not available. Links that might appear to get to that data only take you in a circle. You are instructed to send email to [email protected] , presumably, to obtain it. https://www.in.gov/isdh/27319.htm*The Maternal mortality rate (MMR) is the annual number of female deaths per 100,000 live births from any cause related to or aggravated by pregnancy or its management (excluding accidental or incidental causes).

Action Request:HB 1414Call Your State RepresentativesThere’s a bill at our Statehouse that needs everyone’s action to stop it. It’s currently in the House.HB 1414 would block the electric utilities from retiring a coal plant unless the federal government mandated the retirement. Alternatively a coal plant could be retired if proved to not be in the public interest, which would add time, red tape and expense to the retirement process.Indiana law requires investor-owned utilities to create a plan every two years to identify resource investments to meet electricity requirements. Utilities are directed to choose the resources with the lowest reasonable costs taking into account risks and uncertainties over a 20-year planning horizon. HB 1414 overrides this consumer protection law.  Not the utilities, the customers, the Office of Utility Consumer Counselor (OUCC), the Indiana Utility Regulatory Commission (IURC), the Mid-continent Independent System Operator (MISO), nor Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) has said there is any need to change the current planning law or to stop coal plant retirements.Coal plants are being retired because the 20-year planning analyses indicate that maintaining the coal plants cost the ratepayers more than newer, cleaner alternatives. That is exactly how the process was designed to work.  The coal industry should not be allowed to override laws created to protect utility customers from abuse.This bill is not necessary; coal is not required to provide reliable electricity. This bill forces ratepayers to pay for the most expensive and highest risk source of generation. Coal pollution raises our health costs and shortens our lives.Arctic ice is melting, oceans are rising, and forests are burning. We need to quickly move away from fossil fuels. Delaying the transition is immoral. This bill is immoral.Please ask your Legislators to oppose HB 1414.(***If you don’t know who your Senator or Representative is, find out here.)State Senator Vaneta Becker, Senate District 501-800-382-9467 or [email protected] Senator Jim Tomes, Senate District 491-800-382-9467 or [email protected] Representative Matt Hostettler, House District 64 1-800-382-9841 or [email protected] Representative Ron Bacon, House District 751-800-382-9841 or [email protected] Representative Wendy McNamara, House District 761-800-382-9841 or [email protected] Representative Ryan Hatfield, House District 77317-232-9622 or 1-800-382-9842 or [email protected] Representative Holli Sullivan, House District 781-800-383-9841 or [email protected] FacebookTwitterCopy LinkEmailShare Indiana House approves Hatfield amendment to lower prescription drug pricesJanuary 29, 2020News & Media, Member FeaturedIndiana House Democratic CaucusINDIANAPOLIS – State Rep.

Mr Kipling steps into puddings arena

first_imgMr Kipling has thrown its hat into the ambient dessert market, with the launch of Mr Kipling Puddings. It marks a new focus for the brand, which currently produces cakes, tarts, pies and slices.The ambient sponge puddings market is currently worth £14.5m (IRI value sales 52w/e 9 July 2011), but is currently in decline as consumers switch to chilled products said the firm. Given the brand’s long established baking credentials, and its popularity with consumers, sponge puddings were a natural next step, it added, and the brand aims to grow this area of the market by bringing some of its existing cake customers into the ambient desserts aisle.“Six in ten households bought a Mr Kipling product in the last 12 months offering ample opportunity for crossover,” commented Tim Olley, category controller for desserts at parent company Premier Foods. “The launch of Mr Kipling sponge puddings is a real opportunity for Premier Foods to step change the ambient pudding market and return it to growth,” added Sarah Burnett, senior brand manger cake for Premier Foods. She said the firm would be competing with the likes of the Aunty’s brand, as well as own-label and chilled products, adding that the new range was been targeted at the mainstream market.The new range of microwaveable sponge puddings will be available in five varieties – Chocolate, Sticky Toffee, Lemon, Golden Syrup and Raspberry, and will launch in stores from late August.last_img read more
