The use of modern technology and new treatment methods have started a new chapter in Finnish wood architecture. Lauri Louekari´s Villa Valtanen won a respected wood prize, ”A Log House of the Year” by Puuwoodholzbois at the winter 2012. The wilderness hideaway, located in Lapland close to Arctic Circle, combines ancient timber structures and modern architecture. Save this picture!© Lauri LouekariThe Villa Valtanen stands on top of a rocky outcrop with views towards the distant fells through the surrounding forest. The immediate surrounding contain standing, dead pine trunks, the scars of old forest fires and fine glacial boulders. The task was to design a wilderness hideaway consisting of a living room and sauna with a separate woodshed. Between the buildings is a terrace which provides access to both. Save this picture!© Lauri LouekariThe living room and sauna have a log frame with fishtail corner joints, which is a typical old Finnish building system. Between sauna and Living room is a lofty space with big windows opening onto the fell landscape of forest Lapland. The log frames here are not load-bearing, but the building has a series of beams which carry the laminated-veneer-lumber rafters. The side walls are clad in tarred 45 mm planking which acts like a “raincoat” and allows the use of a short eaves with almost no overhang. The gable walls are sheltered by a traditional eaves with a long overhang. The dark finish on the external walls helps the building to melt into the landscape. In contrast, the oiled natural-wood finnish brings light to the entrance facades. Save this picture!© Lauri LouekariThe theme of this building constructed to the north of Rovaniemi and the Arctic Circle, is localization. The log frames, windows, doors, facade mouldings and other joinery were made by local firms. The only products imported from outside were the solar panels and their batteries and the composting toilet.

Crop Insurance Fix Now Before Senate

first_img Previous articleClosing CommentsNext articlePurdue Expert: EPA’s Decision On RFS Is Statement On Greenhouse Gas Emissions Gary Truitt The U.S. House has sent the highway funding bill on to the Senate for consideration, a bill that includes a fix to crop insurance cuts that were included in last month’s budget deal. The House voted 359 to 65 on Thursday to advance the bill that will reverse a $3 billion cut to crop insurance. The cuts were part of a budget agreement passed last month that was not allowed amendments. However, Congressional leadership vowed at the time to fix the cuts later in the year. The Senate was expected to take up the deal as early as Thursday evening.The bill, formally known as H.R. 22, the conference report on the Surface Transportation Reauthorization and Reform Act, authorizes $305 billion in spending. It is the first five-year transportation authorization bill in more than 10 years and received support from key farm groups due to its basic provisions, which are important to rural America, and for its crop insurance provision, according to the Hagstrom Report.

Students approve all proposed changes to SGA’s constitution

Photo courtesy of Heesoo Yang. Twitter printTCU students approved all four of the proposed changes to the Student Government Association’s (SGA) constitution in a student-wide vote last week. The proposed changes to the SGA constitution. Photo courtesy of SGAThe proposed changes included adding the TCU anti-hazing policy and TCU anti-discriminatory policy to SGA’s constitution, eliminating student body vote on changes to the SGA constitution mandated by the university and merging the two student body vice presidents into one.  All four proposed changes will go into effect immediately except for the merging of the two student body presidents. Vivian Noyd, the elections and regulations chair of SGA, said that amendments made to the SGA constitution must first be approved by the organization.To be approved, the amendments must pass the House of Student Representatives by a two-thirds vote and then will be available for a vote by the undergraduate student body.  When asked about the reasoning behind implementing TCU’s anti-hazing and anti-discriminatory policies into the SGA constitution, Noyd said that they are required provisions in all student organization constitutions.  “In order to remain compliant with university requirements for registered student organizations, SGA added these changes to the referendum,” Noyd said.  The proposed change to eliminate the student body vote is not a complete silencing of students — it’s only on charges mandated by the university to maintain SGA’s status as an officially recognized student organization. “As an organization, it places an undue time and financial burden on the group to advertise and then hold a student body-wide referendum vote on items, like the anti-hazing and anti-discrimination clauses, that the university is requiring SGA to add,” Noyd said.  Some students were confused about the proposed change to eliminate student body vote, thinking that the student vote would be taken out in general.“I personally did not agree with it because I think it’s important to let students have a say,” said Marissa Briggs, a junior TCU education major. That amendment that combines the vice president positions will go into effect in SGA’s next election cycle in the spring of 2020. SGA’s House of Student Representatives will meet again on Tuesday, Nov. 12.

Man arrested for allegedly stealing roommate’s $10 million lottery ticket: Police

first_imgVacaville Police Department(VACAVILLE, Calif.) — A California man who tried to scam his way into hitting the jackpot has been arrested instead.Adul Saosongyang, 35, allegedly stole a winning scratch-off ticket for a $10 million prize from his roommate, police said.The unidentified victim bought the $30 Scratchers ticket at a Lucky supermarket in Vacaville, about 45 miles southwest of Sacramento, according to the Vacaville Police Department. After the man scraped off his results, he thought he won $10,000 and went home to share the news with his two roommates, police said.When the man went to the California State Lottery’s district office in Sacramento to collect his winnings the next day, he was told that the ticket was not a winner and had been altered, police said. The victim suspected that one of his roommates must have stolen the actual winning ticket and filed a report with the police department.The next day, when Saosongyang went to the lottery office, he was told that the winning ticket he had was actually worth $10 million, police said, adding that lottery workers were unaware at the time that the ticket had been reported stolen.The lottery office then began its standard administrative investigation it conducts for all winnings over $600. The investigator who went to the Lucky grocery store to obtain surveillance footage of the purchase was then told that the ticket may have been stolen and contacted police to initiate a joint investigation. They both determined that Saosongyang allegedly purchased a similar lottery ticket and altered it before swapping it with the winning ticket, according to authorities.On Monday, the lottery investigator invited Saosongyang to the Sacramento office to collect his winnings, but he was arrested and charged with grand theft instead, police said.The California Lottery confirmed in a statement that the theft of the $10 million prize money was thwarted and reminded players to take precautions when playing the lotto.“Immediately sign the back of Lottery tickets in ink; put them in a secure place you will remember; and, visit one of nine Lottery district offices throughout the state to begin the claims process,” the statement advised.The man who actually bought the ticket will be awarded his winnings after lottery investigators verify his identity, according to the statement.Saosongyang was booked into Sacramento County jail on Monday and was transferred to Solano County on Thursday, where he is being held on $65,000 bail.He is expected to appear in court Thursday afternoon. It is unclear if he has retained an attorney.Copyright © 2019, ABC Radio. All rights reserved.last_img read more

Woman killed in New Orleans during Mardi Gras parade after being hit by float

first_imgPhotoservice/iStock(NEW ORLEANS) — A Mardi Gras celebration in New Orleans turned deadly when a woman was killed after being run over by a parade float.The woman, whose name has not been released by police, was struck by a float from The Mystic Krewe of Nyx parade at the intersection of Magazine and Valence street around 9 p.m. local time Wednesday night, according to the New Orleans Police Department.The victim was pronounced dead at the scene.After the woman was fatally struck, floats in front of the incident continued along the route, while other floats were diverted, with police saying most people chose to stop marching after the accident.The Mystic Krewe of Nyx said its mission is to “unite women of diverse background for fun, friendship, and the merriment of the Mardi Gras season.” It had been holding the parade in New Orleans since 2012, its website said.“On such a joyous night, this is obviously a tragic occurrence. The parade takes a back seat when something like this happens on the route,” Krewe captain Julie Lea told ABC New Orleans affiliate WGNO. “On behalf of the entire Krewe of Nyx, along with the city of New Orleans, we offer our most sincere condolences to the family and friends of the individual involved.”Police said an autopsy would be performed and once the family is notified, they will release the name of the victim.Copyright © 2020, ABC Audio.
