Martis Camp is a 2,200 acre multigenerational ski and golf club located between historic Truckee, California, and Lake Tahoe. Over 600 one to five acre single family lots are planned with small groups of lots being released at a time. This 6,000 square foot development project is sited on an acre of steeply sloping, wooded terrain, with phenomenal views of the Carson mountain range to the north and west. The placement and footprint of the house preserves the natural site features through minimal grading and tree removal.Save this picture!Courtesy of Blaze Makoid ArchitectureAccessed from the lower part of the site, the house is a simple ‘L’, with the two wings linked by the double height glazed entry and stair hall, located at the intersection of the two geometries. A stone plinth mediates the steep pitch of the site creating both a cloistered parking court as well as a base on which the two story house rests. High stone retaining walls along the high point of the site combine with a dramatically cantilevered roof to provide extensive, sheltered outdoor patio space that includes outdoor cooking, dining and living areas. These program elements surround the open plan great room that contains living, dining, and kitchen. The den to the northwest projects out beyond the stone base, creating a secluded, glazed refuge and serves as a balance to the roof projection on the opposite side of the house.Save this picture!Courtesy of Blaze Makoid ArchitectureSave this picture!PlanSave this picture!Courtesy of Blaze Makoid ArchitectureBlack stained cedar siding allows for the house to blend with the landscape during the summer and fall, and pose as a dramatic counterpoint to the snow cover through the winter months.Save this picture!Courtesy of Blaze Makoid ArchitectureProject gallerySee allShow lessSix Practices Selected As Winners of the 2016 Architectural League PrizeArchitecture NewsMoshe Safdie to Receive Lifetime Achievement Award at the 2016 National Design AwardsArchitecture News Share CopyAbout this officeBlaze Makoid ArchitectureOfficeFollowProductWood#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesUnited StatesPublished on May 05, 2016Cite: “Martis Camp 506 / Blaze Makoid Architecture” 05 May 2016.

Soy Checkoff Aims to Improve End Users’ Products

first_img Facebook Twitter Home Indiana Agriculture News Soy Checkoff Aims to Improve End Users’ Products SHARE By Andy Eubank – Apr 10, 2016 SHARE Jared Hagert for USBThe United Soybean Board continues implementation of the checkoff’s long-range strategic plan with the goal of maximizing profit opportunities for all U.S. soybean farmers. The plan focuses on innovating beyond the bushel to meet U.S. soy’s end users’ needs. End users of U.S. soy don’t buy bushels of beans; they buy the components…meal and oil. And the checkoff has plans to improve these products. That will build preference for U.S. soy among these end users and add value for farmers. USB chair Jared Hagert explains.“U.S. soybean farmers have proven that we can provide a steady, sustainable and high-quality supply of soybeans. Now, we need to be innovative about our soy products and how we position them to our soy customers.”One way the checkoff is already driving U.S. soybean oil innovation is through high oleic soybeans. Next, it wants to do the same with soybean meal, by increasing protein.To learn more about the soy checkoff’s long-range strategic plan, visit www.UNITEDSOYBEAN.ORG.

Use Plot Data to Make Sound Decisions

first_img Use Plot Data to Make Sound Decisions Home News Feed Use Plot Data to Make Sound Decisions By Hoosier Ag Today – Oct 20, 2017 Facebook Twitter SHARE Matt Hutcheson, CCAProduct ManagerSeed Consultants, Inc.As harvest progresses across the Eastern Corn Belt, seed companies, universities, and growers will have the chance to compile and analyze data from yield testing. One of the most important decisions a farmer will face all year is deciding what variety to plant and in which field to plant it. To ensure that the best possible decision is made next spring, it is important to spend some time looking at yield data. While reviewing data is critical, knowing how to determine whether it is accurate and useful is equally important. Below are some tips for using data to make sound planting decisions next spring.Look for Replicated DataDon’t rely on yield results from one strip plot on a farm or from a single plot location. Look for data from randomized tests that are repeated multiple times and across multiple locations. Replications in testing increase the reliability of the data and helps to remove variables that can skew results.For strip plot data, was a “tester” used?Strip plots planted on farms can cover large areas of a field. In many fields in the Eastern Corn Belt there are several soil types. If a plot crosses several soil types how can you be sure it is accurate? By planting a “tester” variety at regular intervals within the plot, you can calculate adjusted yields based on the variability of the tester yield across the plot. The use of a tester minimizes the effect soil type variability has on the plot results to ensure more accurate data.Look for consistencyAccording to Bob Nielsen, Purdue Extension Agronomist, “Documented consistency in yield performance is still the key to success in selecting hybrids that will perform well in your farming operation.” When choosing a variety based on plot data, it is important to look for consistent performance—across several plot locations and between multiple years. Choose varieties that consistently performed well in 2016 and 2017, in multiple locations, and different growing conditions.Statistical SignificanceOn published data look for foot notes that indicate the least statistically significant yield difference, or LSD. In many plots, the performance of the top 5 or 10 varieties may not be statistically different. Although there are small differences in yield, statistical analysis of the data indicates that all varieties within the LSD have an equal chance of winning the plot.While plot data can be very useful in making decisions, some plot data is significantly more accurate and reliable. The key to getting the most out of yield data is having the ability to sort through the large amounts of information to identify the data that most accurately and reliably represents varietal performance.

We also have strong commitments from our supply chain to support us during this unprecedented ramp up of demand and we fully expect to support Medtronic to get ventilators to market quickly. In partnership with our supply chain, we are now going to be in the frontline of the battle against COVID-19 and we will play our part in the national and international effort” Welcoming this announcement from Bolgers, Shannon Chamber CEO Helen Downes said: “The commitment we are seeing from our Shannon companies to keep their businesses operating whilst working within the health and safety requirements of the HSE and the WHO, is commendable. Covid antibody testing opens to public at Shannon Airport Noel Halpin (floor manager) and Paul Collins (sales and marketing manager), Bolger Engineering, at the recent Manufacturing Solutions event in Limerick Institute of Technology (LIT) showing one of their high quality precision medical fabrications.Bolgers, a leading medical equipment fabrication and assembly supplier based in Shannon, Co Clare, Ireland, has announced that it is increasing its ventilator fabrication manufacturing operations. This is being implemented to support Medtronic, the world’s largest medical technology company, as they more than double ty to manufacture and supply ventilators in response to the urgent needs of patients and healthcare systems across the globe confronting COVID-19. TAGSbusinessCoronavirusCovid 19Limerick City and CountyNews Government announces phased easing of public health restrictions WhatsApp Medtronic recognizes the acute need for ventilators as life-saving devices in the management of COVID-19 infections. High-performance ventilators play a critical role in the management of patients with severe respiratory illness, such as COVID-19, who require assistance because they cannot breathe effectively. By placing a patient on such a ventilator, the patient’s lungs are permitted to rest and recover while the ventilator performs the functions of supplying oxygen and simulating the actions of breathing. Without ventilation support, many patients with severe respiratory disease might not survive. “To now see a company ramping up its activities to play its part in providing a much-needed medical device, so vital to assisting doctors deal with and patients recover from the COVID- 19 virus, is exceptional. Bolgers’ ability to respond so swiftly to this need demonsrates the value of having business continuity plans in place, coupled with, as in this instance, an ability to expand production lines. Well done to all the team,” added Ms Downes. ‘Everything tells us we are moving forward’last_img read more

Further, all orders of eviction, dispossession or demolition and orders of anticipatory bail have been extended till May 15. The order has been passed in a suo moto case, to ensure that litigants do not suffer on account of their “inability to approach the Courts of law”: “(i) All interim orders passed by the High Court of Judicature at Allahabad well as at Lucknow, all the District Courts, Civil Courts, Family Courts, Labour Courts, Industrial Tribunals and all other Tribunals in the State over which this Court has power of superintendence, which have been expired subsequent to 19th March, 2020 or are due to expire within a period of one month from today, will continue to operate upto 10th May, 2020. We, however, make it clear that those interim orders which are not of a limited duration and are to operate till further orders will remain unaffected; (ii) If a bail has been granted in anticipation as an interim measure for a specific period and that period is going to expire on or before 3rd May, 2020, the same shall stand extended upto 15th May, 2020. (iii) If any orders of eviction, dispossession or demolition are already passed by the High Court, District or Civil Courts, the same shall remain in abeyance till 15th May, 2020 or having any order order by the court competent, whichever is earlier,” the court has directed. Earlier, the High Court had extended all interim orders till April 26. However, in light of extension of the lockdown, the High Court set it “deemed appropriate” to modify that order.
