Save this picture!© Nicolas CastesThe historical richness of the site where time has left its distinctive print calls for a sober vision of architecture linked with the sense of the place. Respect of what is existing is the driving force of the project. A new structure is conceived within a patrimonial frame which is the building work of the farmhouse. The building slots into this protective enclosure and has a delicate discussion with it. Save this picture!PlanA central line follows on from the Maison du Parc (park & house), this axis articulates the different circulations and insccribes the architectural project in a coherent and global vision on a site scale. Save this picture!© Nicolas CastesWith a view to harmony with the environing landscape, we imagined a buiding which composition lines answer subtely the existing building profile. The protective roof with large fascias offers a global unity. This light and aerial roofing seems to float delicately above work spaces. This roof is raised which allows a very clear readability of the new elements of the project compared to the existing ones. Save this picture!Section C-C’The contemporary envelope of the building is both dynamic and unifying. Its vertical rythm, sometimes filled, sometimes empty, generates a transparency and a fluidity of views which allow us to see the existing walls at any time. The project includes wooden motorized, pliable, sliding shutters which will be integrated on the Eastern and Western facades.

U2, Oasis and even Britney Spears had all been mooted as being the first act to play the venue, so it comes as a surprise that promoters have opted for the Childline Concert.Priced at €40 each, Childline tickets went on sale yesterday. Since the first concert was held in 1997, Childline has benefited to the tune of €2.5m and the children’s charity is expected to receive €400,000 alone from the December 16th concert.According to a representative of the charity: “Childline would like to thank all parties involved with the concert including the artists, organisers and The O2 Dublin, who are generously giving their services and time free of charge on this historic opening night of the O2 arena.“Their involvement will contribute significantly to ensuring that every child who contacts Childline will be heard,” they added.last_img read more

Conversely, nine in ten small charities recorded no complaints about their fundraising. Six in ten complaints were generated by 1% of reporting charities (all with a voluntary income of £10 million and over).The most complained about methods of fundraising were addressed mail and telephone fundraising, accounting for 60% of all fundraising complaints. In addition, over a third (35%) of charity fundraising complaints were prompted by a general dislike of fundraising methods.Top 10 Fundraising Methods Prompting Complaint in 2015Addressed mail (27,089) Email fundraising (2,441)center_img Commenting on the report, Stephen Dunmore, Acting Chief Executive of the Fundraising Regulator said:“Complaint monitoring is an important analytical tool to help regulators and fundraising practitioners alike understand where public concerns lie. As we pick up the reins for regulating charity fundraising later this week, we recognise the critical importance of identifying and addressing concerns from the public. This will remain a key focus for self-regulation of fundraising. Without that overview, charities cannot re-build public confidence in their work and restore trust in the way that essential funds are raised.”Peter Lewis, Chief Executive of the Institute of Fundraising, added:“2015 was a difficult year for fundraising and in response we have seen the sector taking rapid action to address the public concerns which came to light. These actions have set the sector on the right path. At the IoF, as part of our anticipated merger with the PFRA, we are about to launch a new service to help our members comply with the Code, and are further developing our extensive training programme to help raise fundraising standards further. It is also important to note that figures for the last year show that existing donors are choosing to continue to support the causes they care about.” Raffles (855)The report emphasises the need for charities to ensure that supporters’ views remain central to all future fundraising approaches.Andrew Hind, Chair of the Fundraising Standards Board, said:“While we must continually stress the essential need for charities to fundraise energetically and innovatively, charities must find ways to ensure that their fundraising approaches minimise any concern to the public. Fundraising should always be a positive experience that reflects the charity’s own values and the importance of its supporters. The public’s dislike of some fundraising methods highlights the need for charities to listen ever more carefully to supporter feedback and adapt their fundraising strategies in line with those views.” Advertisement FRSB reveals 66,814 charity fundraising complaints reported in 2015 Street face-to- face (1,033) Outdoor events (1,634)  187 total views,  3 views today About Melanie May Melanie May is a journalist and copywriter specialising in writing both for and about the charity and marketing services sectors since 2001.

Indiana, Fostering a Culture of Agriculture Innovation

first_img Facebook Twitter Home Indiana Agriculture News Indiana, Fostering a Culture of Agriculture Innovation By Gary Truitt – Dec 13, 2015 SHARE Indiana, Fostering a Culture of Agriculture InnovationJulie Borlaug,The first of its kind conference held last week brought together Indiana’s top agriculture, technology, and life sciences leaders to discuss fostering a culture of agricultural innovation in our state. The Ag Biosciences Innovation Conference, sponsored by AgriNovus, was designed to bring very different players, from diverse sectors of the state, to collaborate on innovative ideas in agriculture. Keynote speaker at the event Julie Borlaug, granddaughter of Norman Borlaug, said it is vital that agriculture begin to interact with other industries and technologies to foster the kind of innovation we will need to increase food production, “We in agriculture spend a lot of time talking to ourselves, so it is great when an event like this brings together outside groups to focus on agricultural innovation.” She told HAT that a more holistic approach is needed to address the world’s food production problem.Borlaug said the kind of innovation that will increase food production will not come from within agriculture, but will be a collaborative effort with many different technologies, “It is going to take engineers, and robotics, and computer science, and many others to address the issues we face in agriculture.”  She added that even biotechnology will need to embrace other sectors of the life sciences. Facebook Twittercenter_img Indiana, Fostering a Culture of Agriculture Innovation SHARE Ted McKinneyIndiana State Department of Agriculture director Ted McKinney said fostering a culture of agricultural innovation is a primary goal of Governor Pence and that this conference was the first step in making Indiana a Silicon Valley of agriculture, “AgriNovus took the first step and brought all the players together. We have to know what kind of resources we have.” AgriNovus executive director Beth Bechdol said the focus now will be identifying and recruiting the talent that will be needed to foster agricultural innovation in Indiana. Borlaug said one of the keys to getting the right talent is to get more young people interested in agriculture, “We have to show them that the innovation  in agriculture is just as exciting as innovation  in other sectors.” Previous articlePinching Pennies and Boosting Yields, Focus of Annual Farm Show Seminars This WeekNext articleMorning Outlook Gary Truittlast_img read more

She wanted to create a family-friendly philanthropic fundraiser.ADPi members sold tickets for food as well as had lawn games, music and face painting available for everyone who attended.“Overall, it’s a celebration for the Ronald McDonald House,” said Pecoraro.Various yard games were available to play at the event, including a ground piano, four in a row and cornhole.Pecoraro wanted to create a tailgate-esque event, in which they hosted outside the King Family Commons before the TCU vs. Baylor baseball game last Saturday.Peceraro said the event helped not only RMH, but the sorority bond too.“Having the philanthropy we have really helps brings our sisterhood together,” she said. “It helps create a sense of unity.”Brittany Gloria (far left), and Mardison Buckner (right, middle), members of RMH pose with ADPI members (from left to right) Daniella Hochhauser, Caroline Muller and Grace Tate.Brittany Gloria, a member of the young professional’s group that volunteers at the RMH house, said she was glad to see the turnout, despite the gloomy weather, and all the effort the ladies put into the RMH.“It’s so easy to get caught up in school and life,” Gloria said, “so it’s nice to see that they’re wanting to give back and help with other families in the DFW area.”Pecoraro said that ADPi members volunteer at the house about every other week. They play with children and serve meals to families staying at the house.Since its opening in 1981, the 55,000 square foot house has served as a lifeline for families of critically ill children who are hospitalized in the city. In 2016 alone, 947 families stayed at the Fort Worth House.The front lobby of Ronald McDonald House of Fort Worth.Photo provided by RMHWhen families stay at the house, they are given food, a place to do laundry and a place to stay in one of their 58 rooms.What staff members and volunteers strive to show is that RMH is not just a building, but a home-away-from-home.“We really are a support structure for the families,” said Beth Lamb, chief marketing officer at Ronald McDonald House of Fort Worth.Lamb said that everyone there works to create a stress reduced environment so that the families can focus more on the health of their child and not worry about some of the additional stresses of being away from home and the burdens it comes with, particularly the financial burden.At the end of each stay, families are asked to give a $20 donation per night that they stayed.One of the 58 rooms that families can stay in. Photo provided by RMHLamb says sometimes families can pay, but sometimes they can’t. But she adds that they work to never turn away families.Hannah Llach, communication coordinator for Ronald McDonald House of Fort Worth, said working with all the families is such a rewarding experience.Llach, a TCU alum, said her family had volunteered at a RMH in Bakersfield, but it wasn’t until she started working at the house in Fort Worth she saw the real impact it made“Their gratitude for our staff, volunteers and donors is unmeasurable,” she said. “It’s given me a new perspective and purpose for my everyday life.”Lamb said she working at the house has taught her life lessons. She told one story about a five-year-old boy, who was battling cancer, running down the hall by her office saying “giddy-up Bullseye.”“He’s dealing with some of the hardest things in his life, and yet he’s infused with a joy,” she said. “And so if he can have that, then I certainly can. It teaches me to be strong.”Even though she is not on staff at RMH, first year ADPi member Marissa Wells, said she sees the impact it has on the community, as well as other members of ADPi.“We are a very diverse group, but one of the things we have in common is our passion for our philanthropy,” she said. “It’s just a lot of fun to be able to go and see and work with the people that you’re raising money for and just seeing the cause with your eyes makes such a huge difference.” TCU student lobbies Texas congressional delegation for foreign aid Primary election results signal changes for the Democratic Party + posts Paige Megyesi is a theatre and journalism double major at Texas Christian University, class of 2019.

He was told he was being deported and a police car took him to the airport to be put on a plane. His lawyer, Beatrice Mtetwa, said shortly afterwards she had obtained a court order blocking the deportation.”Zimbabwe is one of the most backward countries in Africa as far as press freedom is concerned and certainly the harshest towards the independent media,” Ménard said. “President Robert Mugabe and his information minister, Jonathan Moyo, do not tolerate criticism of them in the foreign press.”Mugabe is on the Reporters Without Borders worldwide list of 42 predators of press freedom.Immigration officials went to Meldrum’s house in Harare at night on 7 May but he was not at home. They refused to say what they wanted with him. His lawyer said that as soon as legal procedures were respected, he would be at the disposition of the legal authorities. On 13 May, an immigration official accused him of breaking the rules of his residency by writing about the political situation.
