Other developments include the expansion of a robust and diverse diocesan staff, advanced diocese-wide commitments to antiracism and multiculturalism, dedication to gun violence prevention, care for creation and reimagining the Episcopal Church in Connecticut, resulting in significant changes in the structures and operations of the diocese in order to better participate in the mission of God.“Serving as your bishop has been the greatest blessing and honor of my ordained ministry,” Douglas said in a letter to the diocese. “In the power of the Holy Spirit, we have embraced the challenges and opportunities of this new missional age. I am excited about the work before us, and I very much look forward to our next year and a half together in service to God’s mission of restoration and reconciliation.”Douglas came to Connecticut from the Episcopal Divinity School, then located in Cambridge, Massachusetts, where he was the Angus Dun Professor of Mission and World Christianity for over two decades.

Essentially, the detached 3-level house, originally built in 1936, asked for a thorough reconversion. A hotchpotch of rooms, most of them low on natural light, made the house lack spatiality and gave it a rather closed, introvert feeling. Save this picture!© Luc RoymansSave this picture!Floor PlanSave this picture!© Luc RoymansHowever, it was the habitable area of 470 m², the garden and the location in the residential area of the city center of Ghent, quiet but close to traffic interchanges, that persuaded the owners to buy this property. Bringing daylight into the house and creating a link with the garden was the first requirement, next to adapting the outdated house to contemporary living standards.Save this picture!© Luc RoymansThe owners, a family with three playful boys, love spending time outside and like to have a barbecue in summer as well as in winter time. Therefore, an extension in glass and concrete was added to the rear part of the house, almost ‘crawling’ out of the house into the garden, reorienting the life on the garden and ensuring a direct contact with it. Its 6-meter accordion window can be opened completely, blurring the boundaries between the inside and the outside. Even when it’s raining, this is a pleasant place to sit and enjoy a Gin & Tonic with an open air feeling.   Save this picture!© Luc RoymansKitchen and dining area were designed in this rear part. Given the north-facing orientation of the garden, the wall-to-wall window enables a constant daylight admission into the core living areas of the house. Save this picture!© Luc RoymansThe extension was carried out in rough, timber shuttered concrete, true to the traditional technique. Being both striking and yet unassuming at the same time, this material creates an honest and timeless look and doesn’t withdraw the attention from the essence. To balance the cold grey of the concrete, timber cladding was chosen to give the façade a sense of warmth. The interplay between the straightforwardness of the concrete and the warmth of the wood lends the extension a timeless character. Partly for the privacy of the owners, the timber cladding hides a window and a door giving access to the storage room, as well as a cabinet for the owner’s Tesla Wall Connector.  Save this picture!Design wall-cabinet: Filip Janssens. Image © Luc RoymansOn top of the extension, a green roof with wildflowers was provided. On the first floor, this results in a view lending an emphasis to the (visually) extended garden.Save this picture!© Luc RoymansInside the existing house, dividing walls have been opened up to reallocate the rooms. In order to maintain the unique character of the house, original features such as marble tiles, wooden floor boards, steel profiles, old doors and cabinets have been retained or reused wherever possible.Save this picture!© Luc RoymansAs for the replacement of the original windows, wood was the material of preference, allowing the architect to design a unique frame profile, including a shadow gap which gives the windows a more elegant appearance.Save this picture!© Luc RoymansThe existing house is a robust volume made out of masonry, with small windows. The extension was carried out in rough, timber shuttered concrete, true to the traditional technique. Save this picture!© Luc RoymansAlso at the interior of the house this timber shuttered concrete was used for the new structural walls.

Romero crashes Lamborghini

first_imgRelatedPosts Pirlo not out to copy anyone after Juventus’ comfortable opening win Ighalo: My best moment as ‘Red Devil’ EPL: Crystal Palace stun sloppy Man U Manchester United keeper Sergio Romero has been involved in a crash in his Lamborghini. The club confirmed it was the Argentinian involved in the smash – and he was unhurt. The crash happened on the Carrington Spur Road through Ashton, not far from the Reds’ training ground. No other cars are believed to have been involved. Images showed the supercar underneath a buckled barrier at the side of the road. Romero has been seen driving a Lamborghini to and from training in recent months. It is believed to be the same car involved in the crash. Police were later seen at the scene as the debris was cleared from the road. Romero has made 23 appearances for United in all competitions since signing from Sampdoria in 2015.Tags: AshtonCarington Spur RoadLamborghiniManchester UnitedSampdoriaSergio Romerolast_img read more

Solar Groups At Odds Over Tax Credit Strategy

first_imgITC viewed as critical to solar’s growthSince the tax credit went into effect in 2006, it has helped annual PV installations to grow by more than 1,600%, SEIA says. The credit was extended in 2008, but it will end entirely for residential systems and drop from 30% to 10% for commercial systems unless Congress intervenes by the end of 2016.“The solar Investment Tax Credit is one of the most important federal policy mechanisms to support the deployment of solar energy in the United States,” the group’s website says. “The ITC continues to drive growth in the industry and job creation across the country.”The tax credit encourages homeowners to invest in solar equipment by knocking 30% of the cost of the system off their tax bills. If, for example, a homeowner invests $10,000 in a PV system, he or she can deduct 30% of that ($3,000) from taxes owed at the end of the year. An end to the ITC means that PV systems will rise in cost by 30% overnight.The SEIA says that the tax credit is responsible not only for “dramatic” increases in the number of systems that have been installed but also for an 86% growth in solar employment in the last four years, and a jobs creation rate nearly 20 times higher than overall employment growth.It also creates “market certainty” for companies, making them feel comfortable with long-term investments in the industry. That spurs technological innovation and lowers costs for consumers, SEIA says. Solar energy advocates worry that the expiration of a 30% federal tax credit for residential solar equipment at the end of 2016 will result in thousands of lost jobs and many fewer installations of photovoltaic (PV) systems. But the country’s two solar trade groups can’t agree on how or even whether to join forces to fight for an extension of the tax credit.One group, the Solar Energy Industries Association (SEIA), recently asked the Solar Electric Power Association (SEPA) to kick in $2 million for a lobbying effort to retain the income tax credit (ITC), Greentech Media reports. But SEPA said no, citing fears that getting involved in a campaign might threaten its reputation as an “unbiased educational organization.”Citing documents obtained by Greentech Media, Stephen Lacey reports SEIA chief Rhone Resch and board Chairman Nat Kreamer wrote a joint letter to SEPA president Julia Hamm expressing their concerns and asking for money to lobby for an extension.They warned that a failure to keep the credit would mean the loss of 100,000 jobs and a 60% drop in the number of U.S. PV installations. They’re also concerned that a large trade show organized jointly by the two groups, Solar Power International, would suffer.“Solar Power International, the primary source of SEPA’s budget, would be severely impacted due to a lack of exhibitors, sponsors and attendees,” the letter said, according to Greentech Media. “Our ability to carry out our respective missions would be challenged.”The appeal wasn’t enough for SEPA. “While SEPA fully appreciates the impact the ITC has had on the solar industry broadly as well as directly on Solar Power International, the Board determined that funding any elements of an advocacy campaign managed by a 501(c)6 may be detrimental to SEPA’s reputation as an unbiased educational organization,” Hamm replied in an email. A difference in outlooksAlthough both trade groups are nominally pro-solar, they have different missions and are categorized differently under federal tax laws. SEIA is a 501 (c)6 organization, Greentech Media said, while SEPA is a 501(c)3 group — the first a lobbying organization and the latter an organization limited to educational work.Officers on SEPA’s board of directors all are utility executives, as are many of the directors. SEIA’s board, on the other hand, includes a number of executives with such companies as SunPower Corporation, SolarCity, First Solar, and Standard Solar.Although it’s easy to surmise that the strong presence of utility executives on the SEPA board is what’s driving its lack of enthusiasm for an ITC lobbying effort, Hamm said that non-utility board members also thought that advocacy was inappropriate.Hamm told Greentech Media that SEPA was still thinking about how it might participate in the ITC debate. “We’re certainly not ignoring it,” she said. “We just don’t have an agenda. Not having an agenda ensures that any research we conduct will be credible.”last_img read more

Safety and Security Unit of Education Ministry Gets Support of US$3 Million

first_img The Safety and Security Unit of the Ministry of Education, Youth and Information has been boosted with a US$3 million support from the United States Agency for International Development (USAID), under the Ministry/USAID Partnership For Safe School project.Through the project, the Unit will increase the number of hand held metal detectors to 500, and walk through scanners to 30 for the 2018-2019 school year. Funding has also been provided for perimeter fencing, installation of cameras, capacity building training as well as support to uniformed groups.Addressing a JIS ‘Think Tank’, today (September 13), Director of the Unit, Assistant Superintendent of Police (ASP), Coleridge Minto, said that through the partnership, more than 300 students from across the island also benefited from a special therapeutic behaviour modification camp, held in July under the theme: ‘Chance, Choice and Change’.He explained that the Ministry’s prime objective is to implement the necessary measures to transform schools and their immediate surroundings into safe zones through a multi-layered and multi-sectoral approach, utilizing both public and private partnerships, supported by legislation and policies where necessary.According to ASP Minto, the Ministry’s position in treating safety and security in school should be seen as a holistic approach and not left up to an individual.“As a consequence, the Ministry has mandated that a Security and Safety Committee be established in each school. This committee comprises both internal and external partners who should develop and implement a security and safety plan,” he said.The Ministry has completed the procurement, printing and distribution of 6,000 Safety and Security Manuals and have begun distribution to the schools.The Safe School Policy involves a paradigm shift in the area of student behaviour and discipline. It emphasizes prevention and early intervention strategies in dealing with the social, emotional, and behavioural difficulties experienced by some students.
