Sits on a 352 square meters land, Misol House was initially designed to adopt American classical architectural style. The owner, a pilot by profession, may be inspired by the houses in the countries that he has visited. As a consultant, the Architect has a moral responsibility to advise the Client that the American classical architectural style is unsuitable for Indonesia’s tropical climate. Instead, Somia Design Studio offers the idea of a tropical urban house as an ideal concept to respond to the tropical climate conditions in Bali.Save this picture!© Mario WibowoSave this picture!Ground Floor PlanSave this picture!© Mario WibowoChallenges on the tight land area and the dense neighborhood are responded by balancing the ratio between the built-up areas and the open space areas. Open space provision aims to maximally absorb rainwater as well as maximizing reforestation areas to reduce harmful carbon in the city. It could also reduce the surrounding temperature and increase the percentage of the urban void. The allocation of the built area and open space ratio is made 50/50 to avoid a solid impression on the building mass.Save this picture!© Mario WibowoThe process of synchronization between Client’s needs and desires was addressed by exchanging thoughts intensively between the Client and the Architect to sort out the suitable and ideal design to be applied. The tropical urban house concept applied to Misol House creates many voids within the house, allowing penetration of sunlight as the natural source of lighting and optimizing natural ventilation. The living room and dining room, located on the ground floor, are designed with full height glass walls to optimize natural lighting. The use of glass wall makes the architecture alive by exposing the activities inside the house.Save this picture!© Mario WibowoThe Client initially wanted the whole house to be in white color to give the impression of cleanliness. The Architect offers the ideas of applying two colors concept to the building, which are white and grey. This way the Client’s desire on achieving a clean, simple, quiet, and bright impression can still be psychologically achieved without having the house to appear monotonous. The house is also equipped with a wet kitchen that is separated from the dining room, large enough to accommodate heavy cooking activities that the Client likes to do on daily basis. A separate kitchen space also aims to avoid contamination to other rooms from the odor generated from the cooking activities.Save this picture!Section AThe layout of the house is designed based on the Client’s specific brief. Master bedroom with attached master bathroom is located on the ground floor, while the two other bedrooms are located on the upper floor with a shared bathroom. The bedrooms are designed not too large as the users tend to have high mobility, and the bedrooms are mainly used for resting and sleeping activities only. In addition, by designing the bedrooms that are not too large, the residents are expected to spend more time in the living room together with other family members. A green pocket with a medium size tree is designed between the master bathroom and the kitchen, providing a green element in the middle of the house. The existence of this green pocket would add a peaceful and beautiful impression to the house.Save this picture!© Mario WibowoBalconies are provided on the upper story, which is designed as such that the privacy of the residents is preserved but at the same time the visual connection with the outside environment is not cut off. Trees are planted on the balconies for cool ambiance. A roof with void covering the balconies is provided to preserve the privacy of the balconies and shelter the balconies from the weather, but at the same time allows for plants to grow. The void on the roof is designed as such that the person standing on the balconies will not be seen by the neighbors on the same floor level. A combination of Client’s needs, practicality, and artistic values, Misol House is not only comfortable and compact but also a house that spoils the eyes and mind of the residents to ease the stress from the urban hustle and bustle.Save this picture!© Mario WibowoProject gallerySee allShow lessTai Kwun Centre for Heritage and Art / Herzog & de MeuronSelected ProjectsZipeng Bay Resort Residential / Shanghai ZF Architectural DesignSelected Projects Share CopyAbout this officeSomia DesignOfficeFollowProductConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesDenpasar BaratIndonesiaPublished on August 28, 2018Cite: “Misol House / Somia Design” 27 Aug 2018.

Andrelton Simmons returns to Angels’ lineup quicker than expected

first_imgThe Angels were without Simmons for just over a month, a relatively quick return from an injury that the Angels believed might cause him to miss as much as eight weeks.“I was trying to fight with the trainers a little bit about that,” Simmons said. “They tried telling me how much it normally takes. … I don’t care about anybody else. I just tried to make progress as fast as possible. I’m just happy I’m back now.”Luís Rengifo, who came up after Simmons got hurt, remained on the roster. The Angels will rotate him around at second, third and shortstop, giving days off to Simmons, Tommy La Stella and David Fletcher. On Thursday, Rengifo started at second and Fletcher had the day off.Related Articles Angels offense breaks out to split doubleheader with Astros Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Error Jose Suarez’s rocky start sinks Angels in loss to Astros Angels’ Mike Trout working on his defense, thanks to Twitter center_img Angels’ poor pitching spoils an Albert Pujols milestone Angels’ Shohei Ohtani spending downtime working in outfield ANAHEIM — The Angels’ lineup is finally complete.Shortstop Andrelton Simmons was activated before Thursday’s game and slotted into the No. 7 spot in the batting order, joining Justin Upton and Shohei Ohtani in the lineup for the first time all season.“I thought I was going to be playing the most games out of everybody, and unfortunately that thing happened,” said Simmons, who suffered a Grade 3 left ankle sprain on May 21. “I’m glad everybody’s back. J-Up looks good out there. Ohtani’s swinging the bat good. (Mike Trout) is doing what he normally does. It’s going to be exciting times.”Ohtani missed the first five weeks of the season rehabbing from Tommy John surgery, and Upton missed about two and a half months because of a sprained toe.

Olympian hopes book will start dialogue and open eyes

first_img EVERYDAY STRUGGLE Blake recalled that his humble upbringing in the deep-rural Morningside district in St Elizabeth, and his everyday struggles to attend St Elizabeth Technical High School, “propelled” him to win a relay bronze medal at the 1996 Olympics in Atlanta, Georgia, and silver at the 1995 World Championships in Gothenburg, Sweden. “It’s (book) going to start a dialogue and open the eyes. To be honest, I am not trying to be a millionaire from this book, My hope is that it will reach in the hands of all high-school athletes and they will be able to take this book home and let their parents read it,” explained Blake, who says he wants to help athletes stay focused “on the rugged path to athletic prowess”. He added that, the track arena is not going to be easy for the athletes, while noting he suffered “fights” during his time on the track. “The whole idea is to motivate athletes who come from a struggling background, disenfranchised kids. Kids sidelined and losing hope, this book is going to teach them to fight that type of demon and propel themselves forward. “I’ve had the experience of making the national team and some people did not want me on the 4x400m and coaches told me I am to stay focused, and I know exactly what that meant …” he recalled. Blake is of the view that past athletes are not well appreciated in Jamaica but he considers them “trend-setters for upcoming athletes to excel towards”. Blake, who represented Jamaica at two Olympic Games, two World Championships, two World University Games, one Pan American Games and one Commonwealth Games, stressed that he feels Jamaican athletes should show more guts and courage and not take abuse. “I find that with professional athletes, they have no backbone these days … . I have had experiences where these athletes just take anything. Sports in Jamaica has gone to a point where it’s all about winning, and athletes have suffered for the sport that they love, and the book is going to talk about some of the challenges that I have faced and correlate it with some of the challenges that other athletes have and will face over the years,” stressed Blake. Retired Olympian, Dennis Blake says he is hoping to use his book, Dennis Blake’s Memoir: An Olympian’s Hidden Secrets, to help young athletes, their parents, coaches and stakeholders of track and field to “knock out fear, overcome challenges and achieve their goals”. Blake, 45, describes himself as a coach, does consultation and gives motivational speeches to students, athletes and professionals seeking to reach the highest levels in sport. “This book opens an important conversation for anyone who is struggling to make a difference in their lives and to fulfil their personal goals,” he said. “Readers will be inspired by the indelible stories which will also shed light on the significant challenges faced by athletes when competing at the elite level,” Blake told The Gleaner in an interview. His book will be published in two parts, the first of which is scheduled to hit the shelves in summer in the United States and will be sold for US$14.95. “My hope and dream for this book is for it to be read by all athletes. It is mostly geared towards those disenfranchised athletes, those athletes who have goals and feel like they can’t make it or they don’t see any light at the end of the tunnel,” added Blake, who is now based in the United States.last_img read more

Chlorinated water sanitation of leafy green vegetables for fresh produce processors

first_imgShare Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest Before leafy green vegetables get to your local grocery store they are treated with sanitizers to reduce bacteria that have come in contact with the produce prior to or during harvesting and to prevent cross-contamination.Chlorinated water is usually used in fresh produce industry. Chlorinated water treatment is cost-effective and easiest to manage among all of the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) approved sanitizers for fresh produce. If the produce is dirty, it is rinsed first with cool water because organic material reduces the efficacy of the sanitation process.Keep in mind this information is intended for small food processors. This sanitation process is not recommended for use at home to clean lettuce or other leafy vegetables from your garden, unless the chlorine meets food grade classification.Chlorinated water is produced by adding either chlorine gas, calcium hypochlorite, or sodium hypochlorite to water. Sodium hypochlorite (NaOCl), also known as bleach, is sold in liquid form. Although more costly than other options, it is safer and relatively easy to use. Since minimal monitoring is required, NaOCl is a common chlorine source for chlorinated water in smaller scale operations. Sodium hypochlorite solution should be stored in a dark and dry place at temperatures between 50 and 70 degrees F and should be used within three months. How is chlorinated water prepared?Chlorinated water with a concentration range of 75 to 200 parts per million (ppm) active chlorine is commonly used. Active chlorine concentration of 200 ppm is the maximum amount allowed to be used by law. The chlorinated water solution with 200 ppm active chlorine is prepared by mixing approximately 1 tablespoon of 5.25% food-grade NaOCl solution, with 1 gallon of water. Although commercial household bleaches (such as Clorox) are sodium hypochlorite solution in water at 5.25% concentration, they may not be food grade. Food grade bleach is defined as sodium hypochlorite solution without any additives such as fragrances, stabilizers, or thickeners. Read the label because only food grade bleach is approved by the EPA for use in food processing.Chlorinated water should be prepared fresh daily. Because chlorine content decreases with time, it should be monitored by using chlorine test strips or kits which measures the concentration of “free chlorine or available chlorine.” How is chlorinated water applied?Chlorinated water is applied by either submerging or spraying the fresh produce. Submerging involves loading produce into a long channel filled with cool, chlorinated water. Submersion for one minute, in a concentration of 75 to 200 ppm available chlorine, is usually effective. Spraying which also provides hydro-cooling is applied to the produce which is placed on a conveyor belt that simultaneously cools and sanitizes. For leafy greens, chlorinated water with available chlorine concentration of 75 to 150 ppm is used. Why is pH of chlorinated water important for effective sanitation?The effectiveness of chlorinated water is highly dependent on the pH of the solution.The solution should be held between pH values of 6.5 to 7.5 to produce hypochlorous acid (HOCl). A pH below 6.5 is corrosive to processing equipment. A pH above 7.5 reduces the effectiveness of sanitation. How is the pH of chlorinated water checked and adjusted?The pH must be checked frequently so that adjustments can be made to offset the addition of the organic matter from the fresh produce. A pH meter shouldbe used, but pH test kits and even litmus paper can provide general pH ranges.If the pH is found to be outside of the necessary range, sodium carbonate is added to raise the pH, and hydrochloric acid, vinegar or sodium bisulfate is added to lower the pH. A test kit is used to determine how much acid or base must be added to be within the desired range.A more detailed fact sheet on this topic can be found on Ohioline (http://ohioline.osu.edu/factsheet/aex-262) Gönül Kaletunç, Professor and food safety engineering specialist, can be reached at 614-292-0419, or [email protected] This column is provided by the OSU Department of Food, Agricultural and Biological Engineering, OSU Extension, Ohio Agricultural Research & Development Center, and the College of Food, Agricultural and Environmental Sciences.last_img read more

Cattlemen urge action to reduce trade barriers in Japan

first_imgShare Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest National Cattlemen’s Beef Association (NCBA) President Kevin Kester urged the Trump Administration to move quickly to tear down trade barriers for U.S. beef in Japan. Speaking at a public hearing on the potential economic impact of a U.S.-Japan bilateral trade agreement, Kester noted that reducing tariff and non-tariff trade barriers would benefit Japanese consumers and U.S. cattle producers. Japan is the top export market for U.S. beef, accounting for nearly $2 billion in sales in 2017. However, U.S. beef exports face tariffs as high as 50% under some circumstances.“NCBA strongly supports prioritizing and expediting negotiations for a U.S.-Japan Trade Agreement,” Kester said in his comments. “The U.S. beef industry is at risk of losing significant market share in Japan unless immediate action is taken to level the playing field.”A number of key U.S. competitors have negotiated agreements that provide their producers with preferential access to the Japanese market. For example, under the Comprehensive and Progressive Trans-Pacific Partnership (CPTPP), Australian beef exporters will enjoy a tariff reduction of 27.5% in the first year of the agreement for fresh and frozen products. In most cases, the countries who are part of CPTPP will see their tariff rates for beef exports decline to 9% over the next 15 years. In addition to CPTPP, Japan is moving ahead with a trade agreement that will give European Union beef producers similar terms to those negotiated in CPTPP.“NCBA supported the negotiated compromise under Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) because it reduced the massive tariff applied to U.S. beef, diminished the likelihood of triggering snap back tariffs, and established strong, objective, and predictable sanitary and phytosanitary standards and other rules-based trade standards,” Kester said. “We expect nothing less under a U.S.-Japan Trade Agreement.”last_img read more
