KCS-content AT a time of year when many City folk are sunning themselves on beaches abroad, it’s good to see that James Caan, the entrepreneur most famous for his appearances on Dragons’ Den, is putting his cash to good use. Last week he flew out to Pakistan to help with the flood relief efforts there. His missive about his experiences doing his bit makes for some extraordinary reading. Landing in Lahore, he set about trying to buy supplies for 1,000 families in a village outside Islamabad, but encountered problems even finding enough food in the shops to load his lorry. Finally he got enough food together, but after travelling through the countryside, he concludes that “it really is survival of the fittest out there, and if you don’t fight for it, you don’t get the aid. This isn’t how it should be.”His description of driving through the flooded area makes vivid reading: “As we weaved in and out of the tops of trees that barely broke the surface of the water, I saw people’s belongings floating to the top; kitchen utensils, and then the odd roof top here and there. It was mind-boggling.” Depressing. SADDLE UPBIKES are a far commoner sight in the City these days, what with Boris’s scheme of rent-a-bike, and now the City of London is trying to encourage bicycling too.They’re calling on senior managers to take part in sponsored cycle-rides as part of European Mobility Week, 16-22 September, with each manager tasked with raising £5,000. The money goes to Re-Cycle, which sends second-hand bikes in Africa. To find out more, and to take the first step to seeing your boss tottering about on two wheels, see www.cityoflondon.gov.uk/cyclechallenge. AMISH ANALYSTANOTHER sensitive City type is James Montier, an analyst at investment management firm GMO. In a research note this week he writes: “As those who know me can attest, I’ve never worried about being fashionable. Not for me, the fads and fashions of this contemporary age. Indeed, I’m known affectionately to some of my colleagues as “the Amish,” for my shunning of the modern world. Touch-screen technology and person-less check-ins at airports haunt my nightmares.” He finishes: “Perhaps I am just a man from a different time.” Then wandered off and started embroidering a quilt, presumably. DICK FULD: MAN OF EMOTIONTHIS is not something you hear very often, but here goes: “Poor Dick Fuld.” The former Lehman Brothers boss, who was known as The Gorilla for his gruff, not to say, er, hands-on, management style, is hard to love, but it seems that he has a softer side. Former Lehman employee named Kevin White has recently revealed a strange encounter he had with his boss in the wake of the investment bank’s collapse in late 2008. the 47-year-old told how, just after it became clear that Lehman had collapsed, he went to see Fuld in his office. “Are you going to shoot me?” Fuld asked. No, replied White, and explained that he was there to thank him for the good times. “Give me a hug. I need a hug,” responded an emotional Fuld, and embraced his astonished colleague. Then he started crying. “Kevin, you’re the first person to say thank-you to me,” wept poor old Dick. And the last, one assumes.

Andrew Maynard Architects present this residential alteration and extension to an existing double fronted weatherboard house in Melbourne, Australia. The brief required 2 bathrooms, a bedroom, living area, kitchen and increased connection with outside areas.The context is typical of inner suburban Melbourne. The site is double fronted with a deeper than usual block running east west. The initial brief asked for an extension along the full width of the existing house. The response to the brief was that any addition should run along a southern boundary to maximize solar access to new and existing spaces and to bring external space into the middle of the living areas.Save this picture!Our practice is interested in the possibility of malleable and mobile space, especially in residential design. We want buildings to respond to the emerging social conditions created by mobile technology such as mobile phones, laptops, PDAs, cars, planes etc. Though we have numerous conceptual designs that explore these concepts, the Essex Street house, with its removable walls, is our first tiny step towards building our numerous experiments.The original house has been restored to its simple four room square plan. The new structure sits lightly beside it like a loyal companion. Rather than build a hard-edged or strongly defined object, the new structure has a blurred or vague edge. The recycled grey iron bark portal frames are of a larger, non-domestic scale. They were envisaged as an old relic of a pre-industrial age, an old, wise element to a new and vibrant addition. Within the robust portals is the delicate layered box. The use of screening and the glazed garage doors create a soft edge that allows the internal spaces to spill into the outdoor spaces. Within this structure are the small, colorful boxes of the bedroom and kitchen. These objects separate functions and act as a bridge between the original house and the extension.Save this picture!The long block has always been rugged, overgrown and wild. Our response to this site condition was to have the large, robust portals connected to the ground delicately rather than conquering or damaging the current ground plain. Hopefully the wild yard will reinstate itself around the base of the structure and make it appear to delicately hang over the ground plane.By running the extension along the southern boundary solar access is achieved in the original lounge, the new internal spaces and the outdoor space shared between them. Along with the protected and sheltered yard the glazed garage doors allow internal activities to spill into the outdoor areas without the need for premeditation or separation throughout the year. Rather than hiding the bathroom function we have opened it up into the yard so that these relaxing and leisurely activities can spill into the yard.Save this picture!Insulation, a sheltering context and well-designed sunshading makes the design an efficient home without the use of elaborate tactics or expensive equipment. The sunshading spacing was designed to minimize solar gain during summer and maximize solar gain during winter. As the seasons shift forest-like dappled sunlight plays throughout the internal spaces. A soon to be installed rainwater tank will be positioned along the southern façade where the roof drainage has been articulated to.The internal plan is a simple linear organization, however the overall design is not a linear one. The layering between internal and external spaces creates an organic series of connections visually and actual between original, new and external spaces. The kitchen ‘box’ acts as the bridge between the old and new, acting as a negotiator between the two languages.Save this picture!The primary structure is a series of recycled grey iron bark portal frames with 12mm steel connectors at each junction. Within the portal structure is a simple stud frame. The glazed garage doors have a steel surround that fixes directly to the stud work. Western Red Cedar battens shade the structure. Existing services have been extended. The client is planning to add solar panels to the new roof area. The roof water has been articulated to points along the southern boundary to allow rainwater tanks to plug straight into the current plumbing.Project gallerySee allShow less”Design Education as Research Laboratory”, Conference at DIAArticlesGlass Balcony at Sears TowerArticles Share “COPY” Australia CopyAbout this officeAustin Maynard ArchitectsOfficeFollow#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesMelbourneRefurbishmentWoodHousesAustraliaPublished on July 03, 2009Cite: “Essex Street House / Austin Maynard Architects” 03 Jul 2009.

On Aug. 28, with Washington, London and Paris apparently on the verge of opening up another very unpopular and dangerous war by firing missiles at Syria, anti-war activists in the U.S. and around the world went to the streets before the rockets were launched.The demonstrations were just the tiny tip of an enormous iceberg of popular opposition in each of the imperialist countries. By Sept. 1, British Prime Minister David Cameron had lost a vote in Parliament backing the war. President Barack Obama, with nearly no international backing, had announced he would ask the U.S. Congress for the support he lacked.By a count of the listings on the United National Antiwar Coalition’s website, by Sept. 1 there were at least 70 demonstrations, vigils or meetings in at least 50 U.S. cities. (unacpeace.org)Reports from around the country — from Newark, N.J., to Dearborn, Mich., and Oakland, Calif. — showed that, while the protests were not as large as those leading up to the 2003 war on Iraq, they easily won the solidarity of those passing by.In New York City on Aug. 29, hundreds of demonstrators, including a strong group of Syria-origin people from Allentown, Pa., marched for two hours to the beat of drums in and around the construction-disrupted streets of Times Square. They often blocked traffic as they chanted, “U.S., NATO, hands off Syria!” The International Action Center and the Syrian American Forum initiated the action. Other groups also built and joined it.Weaving through the congested sidewalks, the protesters came in close contact with the diverse Times Square crowd, arousing many friendly reactions and few hostile ones.On Aug. 29 at the Westwood Federal Building in Los Angeles, hundreds called out by Arab Americans for Syria and the Syrian American Forum, along with the International Action Center, BAYAN-USA, the Union of Progressive Iranians, SOA Watch-LA, the Puerto Rican Alliance and UNAC-LA, demanded no bombing or rocket attacks on Syria.Nearly 100 demonstrators in Seattle made their opposition to a bombing escalation against Syria very visible as the youthful marchers, including many from the Syrian community, marched across downtown from the Federal Building to the Westlake Center and back again on Aug 31.In San Diego, members of Workers World Party distributed the party’s newspaper to Saturday park goers at famous Balboa Park as well as participants in a spirited rally demanding no U.S. attack on Syria. A banner reminded everyone of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.’s assessment of U.S. militarism 46 years ago: “The greatest purveyor of violence in the world today [is] my own government.”In Washington, D.C., hundreds of demonstrators marched in a demonstration the IAC called Aug. 31 before and during Obama’s speech. Their chants reached into the Rose Garden. The Answer Coalition, Code Pink and the Syrian American Forum were also present.In the San Francisco Bay Area, there were demonstrations in San Francisco on Aug. 29 around Union Square and on Aug. 31 at the United Nations Plaza. There was also a rally in Oakland on Aug. 31 in Oscar Grant Plaza.Demonstrators gathered outside the University of Florida in Gainesville on Aug. 28. Anti-war protests also took place in Minneapolis that same day and in Chicago on Aug. 31. Reports can be found at fightbacknews.org.Hundreds demanded “Don’t bomb Syria” on Boston Common on Aug 31. Syrian nationals proudly displayed their country’s flag and passionately denounced U.S. plans to launch missile attacks against their people. Protestors marched up Boston’s ultrarich, Beacon Hill neighborhood and pounded on the front doors and windows of Secretary of State John Kerry’s mansion.The People’s Organization for Progress held a lively street meeting in Newark, N.J., on Aug. 31, protesting the attack on Syria to the unanimous cheers of passers-by. The same day in the midst of a busy noontime crowd on Wisconsin Avenue in Milwaukee, over 70 protesters came out to demand “Hands off Syria!”Terri Kay, Sara Flounders, Bob McCubbin, John Parker, Jim McMahon and Gerry Scoppettuolo contributed to this report.

Indiana Soybean Alliance Seeks Farmers to Run for Board Seats By Andy Eubank – Feb 4, 2014 Hoosier soybean farmers interested in serving on the board of directors of the Indiana Soybean Alliance – the state’s soybean organization – need to file a completed application by Friday, March 28, 2014.ISA works on behalf of nearly 28,000 soybean farmers in Indiana who contribute to the soybean Checkoff. The ISA Board of Directors is responsible for the investment of those checkoff funds. Under its new three-year strategic plan, the ISA identified five major focus areas, including grain marketing, livestock, new uses, production and environmental research, and aquaculture.To apply to be a candidate, Hoosier farmers must sign a Director Expectation Statement and provide information on an Indiana Soybean Leader Profile form. Download the form at https://www.indianasoybean.com/elections or call the soybean office at 1-800-735-0195. Completed paperwork must be postmarked or faxed on or before March 28, 2014 to be eligible.ISA has four voting districts in the state and farmers elected to the 24-member board of directors will serve a three-year term. ISA is seeking candidates to fill two open seats in each of the four districts.District I counties include: Benton, Carroll, Cass, Clinton, Elkhart, Fulton, Howard, Jasper, Kosciusko, La Porte, Lake, Marshall, Miami, Newton, Porter, Pulaski, St. Joseph, Starke, Tipton, Wabash and White.District II counties include: Adams, Allen, Blackford, Dekalb, Delaware, Grant, Henry, Huntington, Jay, La Grange, Madison, Noble, Randolph, Steuben, Wayne, Wells and Whitley.District III counties include: Clay, Daviess, Dubois, Fountain, Gibson, Greene, Knox, Martin, Montgomery, Owen, Parke, Pike, Posey, Putnam, Spencer, Sullivan, Tippecanoe, Vanderburgh, Vermillion, Vigo, Warren and Warrick.District IV counties include: Bartholomew, Boone, Brown, Clark, Crawford, Dearborn, Decatur, Fayette, Floyd, Franklin, Hamilton, Hancock, Harrison, Hendricks, Jackson, Jefferson, Jennings, Johnson, Lawrence, Marion, Monroe, Morgan, Ohio, Orange, Perry, Ripley, Rush, Scott, Shelby, Switzerland, Union and Washington.Candidates for the ISA Board are required to have been engaged in the growing of soybeans in Indiana in the last two years. Candidates must certify that they own the soybeans or share the ownership and risk of loss of the soybeans.Voting will take place in July and ballots will be distributed to Indiana soybean farmers by mail. Those farmers elected in July will begin serving on the ISA board of directors in December 2014.Once elected to the Board, a director may also choose to represent the dues-paying members of the Alliance. Directors who choose to represent ISA’s dues-paying members will develop and promote public policies that benefit the interests of Indiana’s soybean farmers – both in Indianapolis and Washington, D.C.Since federal law prohibits the ISA from using soybean checkoff funds to support policy activities, financial support for membership and policy activities comes from member dues and other contributions. An elected director’s service on behalf of dues-paying ISA members is strictly voluntary and a candidate for the Board is not required to be a dues-paying member of the Alliance.For more information or to obtain a Director Expectation Statement, download the form at https://www.indianasoybean.com/elections or call 1-800-735-0195.Source: ISA SHARE SHARE Facebook Twitter Home Indiana Agriculture News Indiana Soybean Alliance Seeks Farmers to Run for Board Seats Facebook Twitter Previous articlePence among Governors Urging Presidential Involvement in Propane ShortageNext articleGrowth Energy Praises Congress for Passage of the 2014 Farm Bill Andy Eubank
