Nota Design International pte Ltd just shared with us this project called “House At Hillside” in Singapore. According to the architects, this house is a half a century old single storey terrace with an attic and is located in a huge residential zone with a plot ratio of 1.4. The potential of it being en-bloc in a few years’ time is there, but by no means certain.The occupant is a small nuclear family, consisting of the couple, 2 pre-school kids and a domestic helper. Thus, the decision to retain the main structure is made.

Save this picture!© Nota Design International pte LtdLayout The designer will attempt to illustrate a very important point in this project. Lower budget does not equate to lower aesthetic and quality. In fact, lower budget actually means a lot more creativity required! The total built-in area is a mere 147 sqm to start with. Original living room measures only 6m by 3.4 m and divided by old masonry walls on both ends and worsen by a low flat ceiling which makes the space incredibly small. Save this picture!© Nota Design International pte LtdThe front and rear walls of the living room were demolished. In their places were 2 sets of new full-height timber-framed clear glass pivot panels. This allows good cross ventilation across the length of the house when doors are opened. When closed, it allows the air conditioning unit to work more efficiently as they act as air envelops. Flat ceiling was also removed to expose the huge space under the high pitch roof. High ceiling keeps the habitable space cooler especially when it’s 6 m at its highest. Save this picture!© Nota Design International pte LtdThe front yard was a narrow 2.5m corridor which is hard to furnish. A second wall fronting the original living room wall was also demolished to create the new L- shaped Patio. The 2 bedrooms were retained with some modifications. A Doorway was introduced between the 2 Bedrooms to allow direct access to the front kids’ room. The small window in the master bedroom fronting the air well is transformed into a large doorway to allow occupant to enjoy natural air and greenery from the bed day and night. The locations of the kitchen, storeroom, attic space and the 2 bathrooms were left unchanged with much cosmetic modification.

Vermont employment outlook shows middle-class jobs shrinking

first_imgUS Senator Bernie Sanders (I-VT) has released a report showing that low-wage jobs will provide the biggest share of Vermont employment growth through 2018.‘Unfortunately, many of the new jobs being projected for Vermont and America are low-paying jobs. We can and must do better,’ said Sanders, a member of the Senate labor committee.As the state and nation struggle through the worst recession since the 1930s, Vermont’s 6 percent unemployment rate and the 9.6 percent national jobless figure overshadow a decline in manufacturing jobs and other occupations that once supported middle-class families.The employment structure in Vermont reflects a national trend.‘The structure of job opportunities in the United States has sharply polarized over the past two decades, with expanding job opportunities in both high-skill, high-wage occupations and low-skill, low-wage occupations, coupled with contracting opportunities in middle-wage, middle-skill white-collar and blue-collar jobs,’ MIT economist David Autor concluded in a report on The Polarization of Job Opportunities in the U.S. Labor Market.In Vermont, the greatest demand, with more than 400 new openings a year, will be for cashiers and home care aides, according to the analysis compiled for Sanders using state employment data. Another 362 positions are expected in each of the next eight years for retail sales. The median income for those three fields is $18,730, $21,130 and $22,840The highest number of annual openings through 2018 are for cashiers, who are paid an average of $9.57 an hour. According to the state data, 459 such positions are projected to open up each year.Health care is a bright spot in Vermont’s economy. Nursing is one of the few fields with both high demand and good pay. The projected 214 positions opening up annually for registered nurses pay an average of $30 an hour. On the other hand, home care aides are paid only $10 an hour. There are 426 anticipated openings for home care aides each year, the second highest for any of the almost 500 fields of work in VermontThere are 65 types of positions that are defined as ‘high demand’ in Vermont, but just 10 fields are projected to have more than 100 openings each year through 2018. Just three of those occupations earn an average of at least $20 an hour. Executive secretaries make $20 an hour on average, registered nurses are paid $30 an hour, and accountants typically earn $31 an hour. For a full list, click here.To be considered a job in ‘high demand,’ an occupation must exceed both the statewide average for job creation, having at least 24 openings a year, and the statewide annual growth rate, measured at least 0.8 percent annually.More than four of 10 Vermont jobs created through 2018, or 44 percent of annual openings, are classified as “low paying,” according to an analysis by Mathew Barewicz, the economic and labor market information chief at the Vermont Department of Labor. “Low-paying” in his analysis is classified as any position that earns less than $15.73 an hour, or $32,720 per year.Sanders is working to create good-paying jobs by reforming U.S. trade policies, expanding broadband service throughout Vermont, promoting employee-ownership of businesses and encouraging major employers, such as Sandia National Laboratories, to locate facilities in Vermont. Source: Sanders office. 9.9.2010last_img read more

We must take a big leap: Jokowi seeks major transformation out of crisis

first_imgRead also: Jokowi reaffirms Indonesia’s ‘massive downstreaming’ of natural resourcesWith 75 years of independence, Jokowi said, Indonesia had emerged as an upper-middle-income country but the ongoing economic crisis was the worst in its history.In the first quarter, the economy grew 2.97 percent but contracted 5.32 percent in the second quarter. He compared the rates with those of developed countries, which had contracted more than 10 percent.Jokowi once again emphasized the need for swift action in providing social assistance for people and laidoff workers, while acknowledging the importance of loan restructuring and emergency capital assistance for small and medium enterprises.“It is not an easy task. The government must adjust its programs and carry out budget reallocations quickly,” the President said in his speech.Jokowi also asserted the importance of speed and accuracy in the health sector, especially in providing emergency facilities and medical equipment, enforcing health protocols and accelerating citizen repatriation processes.“We must undertake fundamental reforms in the way we work. Our readiness and speed are being tested,” he said.He also addressed the need for fundamental reforms in the health sector by strengthening the capacity of human resources and developing hospitals, health centers, as well as the medicine and medical equipment industry.“Resilience and capacity of our health service must be improved on a massive scale,” he said.During the address, Jokowi also expressed his appreciation to medical and health workers, as well as to community leaders, volunteers, journalists, national security personnel and civil servants. President Joko “Jokowi” Widodo has called on people to support development amid the health and economic crisis.“In 25 years we will usher in 100 years of independence as we become the Indonesia we aspire to be,” Jokowi said in his state of the nation address on Friday during the People’s Consultative Assembly (MPR) annual session at the House of Representatives compound in Jakarta, held to commemorate Indonesia’s 75th Independence Day, which falls on Monday.Wearing traditional Sabu clothing from East Nusa Tenggara, he said the crisis could help push major transformation through the implementation of grand strategies and the resolution of fundamental problems.  “Our current goal is not only to escape the pandemic but also to get through the crisis. We are taking measures to take a big leap by making the most of out of the ongoing crisis,” Jokowi said in his state of the nation address.He said this period should be used to help the “catch up”.Jokowi compared the economic crisis to a computer crash, where many countries had to face stagnation but had the chance to restart their systems.“All countries must undergo a brief shutdown, restart and reboot,” he said.center_img Topics :last_img read more

SuperSport Lands Anthony Joshua/ Andy Ruiz Rematch

first_imgThe upset immediately drew comparisons with Buster Douglas’ upset victory over Mike Tyson in 1990 and Hasim Rahman’s dramatic victory over Lennox Lewis in South Africa in 2001.Ruiz was dismissed largely on the basis of his roly-poly body shape, but his fast hands and solid chin saw him prevail.Former Olympic champion Joshua swears that he will make the necessary adjustments to avenge the defeat, following the path of former heavyweight champions Lewis (against Rahman), Evander Holyfield (Riddick Bowe) and Muhammad Ali (Joe Frazier), who all rebounded to win their rematches.Speaking of Joshua last week, Ruiz said: “He looks a little slimmer, but I don’t think that’s going to do any different. You can do whatever you want outside of the ring, but inside of the ring when it’s fight time, like Mike Tyson said, everyone has a plan until you get hit.“He’s going to try and win by points, especially since he’s going to be running around. My job is to cut the ring, and that’s exactly what we’ve been training for.”Several outstanding fights will make up the undercard, including heavyweights Alexander Povetkin and Michael Hunter and junior-lightweights Scott Quigg and Jono Carroll.Share this:FacebookRedditTwitterPrintPinterestEmailWhatsAppSkypeLinkedInTumblrPocketTelegram The biggest fight of the year – the much-awaited rematch between heavyweight champion Andy Ruiz and Anthony Joshua – will be broadcast live on SuperSport on December 7. The event will be available on DStv packages from Compact Plus to Premium.Five months after American Ruiz upset Joshua in one of the greatest shocks in boxing history, the pair will meet in a purpose-built 15, 000-seat arena in Saudi Arabia, in an event aptly called “Clash on the Dunes”.In June, Ruiz put Joshua down several times in their battle at Madison Square Garden before ending matters in the seventh round.last_img read more

Cole, Badgers seniors end UW career on championship note

first_imgMINNEAPOLIS — After all the talk, hype and anticipation during the season, the Wisconsin women’s hockey team has finally captured the NCAA championship for the first time in the program’s history.Of course, the entire team has to be proud of becoming the best team in the nation. But it has to be even more gratifying for the graduating seniors.The caliber of play from the seniors was a fitting end to the Badgers’ season. And for the departing seniors, this was the ideal way to end their time at Wisconsin, mainly because over the past four years, they’ve become better with each season, only to come up short time and again.The seniors certainly played like they wanted that victory. On the ice in Minneapolis, they definitely looked like a group of players that were so close to victory they could taste it. Their 60 minutes of hard work during the 3-0 victory over Border Battle rival Minnesota was arguably the best hockey the Badgers have played all season long.In the end, it was the effort of the Badgers who were playing their final game in a Wisconsin jersey that won out.Grace Hutchins had a first-period goal, which was assisted by assistant captain Nikki Burish. Cyndy Kenyon would go on to tally assists on both of Jinelle Zaugg’s two powerplay goals, and team captain Sharon Cole was crucial in killing off Minnesota’s powerplay.Meghan Horras did not play in her final game for the cardinal and white, but was instrumental throughout the regular season and early playoffs, where she had the best winning percentage in the conference.It has to be especially rewarding for Cole, who is a native of suburban Minneapolis. She was awarded the privilege of hoisting the championship trophy right in front of her friends and family.”It was very nice,” Cole said of winning it all and going out on top in her hometown. “I grew up here, I’ve played hockey in this rink. It’s great to come home and end it, and have all [my] family and friends come and watch.”I’m ecstatic, I can’t even describe the feeling,” Cole continued. “I was out on the ice and practically bawling. And when my teammates skated up and hugged me, it was amazing. I couldn’t ask for a better way to end my career.”The entire team was happy for Cole and the rest of the seniors. UW head coach Mark Johnson, who began his coaching tenure at Wisconsin during Cole’s first season four years ago, was among those who felt good for Cole.”The first thing that came to mind [after winning] was Sharon Cole and when she first came to Wisconsin four years ago,” Johnson said. “It was also of her being the captain of her team four years later and how much she’s matured and grown and developed into a solid Division I hockey player.”Obviously, the younger Badgers were in no need of extra incentive for winning the title, but thinking about their elder teammates could not have hurt the cause.”You practice everyday and play hard for each other, especially the seniors,” junior defender Bobbi-Jo Slusar said. “We knew it was their last game and I think we sent them off on a good note. … I think they’re pretty happy, so I’m glad we could do it for them.”The Badgers’ victory was a team effort, with the seniors pulling their weight as much as anyone else, but this championship will most certainly stand as a tribute to this talented group of seniors.After all, it is the perfect way to be rewarded for four years of hard work.last_img read more
