Jalan Merlimau / Aamer Architects

first_img Houses Jalan Merlimau / Aamer Architects ArchDaily “COPY” Photographs:  Amir SultanText description provided by the architects. One of the main design challenges for this house was the rather tight triangular site. The entrance and façade from the street was very narrow, giving the house little presence. Save this picture!© Amir SultanRecommended ProductsDoorsJansenDoors – Folding and SlidingDoorsVEKADoors – VEKAMOTION 82DoorsECLISSESliding Pocket Door – ECLISSE LuceDoorsSolarluxBi-Folding Doors – EcolineThe layout, orientation and even the form and massing of the house attempt to negate these site constraints. This formulates the overall design direction. The L-configuration of the plans lends itself to the best possible engagement to site conditions, climate and vistas. The house opens up at the eastern façade, fronted by a central garden and landscape pond. Main spaces are orientated around this garden. The landscape pond extends from this garden to an intimate courtyard across to the other side of the double-volume living space. This courtyard demarcates the semi-private domain of the house. The west elevation assumes the rear of the house. Save this picture!© Amir SultanPunctuating spaces with lush greenery even at the rooftop becomes an intuitive design strategy that enhances the tropicality of the house, providing a ‘green frame’ to the vistas, screening the unpleasant and reducing the tightness of site. Save this picture!© Amir SultanThe lap pool is strategically placed at the rooftop, where the best views are. This not only frees up the ground floor for more garden space but also provides passive cooling and insulation for the spaces below. Save this picture!© Amir SultanPerhaps the most prominent feature of the house is the dramatic front roof that slants from the attic to the car porch, giving the house the presence it needs from the narrow entrance and street.Save this picture!© Amir SultanProject gallerySee allShow lessEEAE / ENHSA Architectural Theory Subgroup WorkshopArticlesInfinity Forest Project / Scale ArchitectureArticles Share Jalan Merlimau / Aamer ArchitectsSave this projectSaveJalan Merlimau / Aamer Architects Save this picture!© Amir Sultan+ 23 Share Singapore “COPY” Architects: Aamer Architects Year Completion year of this architecture project center_img Photographs ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/60023/jalan-merlimau-aamer-architects Clipboard Projects ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/60023/jalan-merlimau-aamer-architects Clipboard 2010 Year:  CopyHouses•Singapore CopyAbout this officeAamer ArchitectsOfficeFollow#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesHousesSingaporePublished on May 15, 2010Cite: “Jalan Merlimau / Aamer Architects” 15 May 2010.

UK Fundraising bot shares content via Facebook Messenger

Publisher of UK Fundraising, the world’s first web resource for professional fundraisers, since 1994. Trainer and consultant in digital fundraising. Founder of Fundraising Camp and co-founder of GoodJobs.org.uk. Researching massive growth in giving. AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis7 UK Fundraising bot shares content via Facebook Messenger Fundraisers can now stay up to date with the latest content from UK Fundraising, via a Facebook Messenger bot.The tool offers a simple conversation that lets fundraisers select the type of fundraising content they wish to receive from the site, and when they wish to receive it.New content from UK Fundraising is sent once a day, Monday to Friday, in the morning or in the afternoon.Readers are guided through a choice of content, to ensure that they receive just the content they want.UK Fundraising’s Howard Lake explained: “Initially they can choose news updates, blog posts, job alerts and events, or a combination of those. And what time of day to receive it. There is also the option to receive promotions from selected third party companies and agencies.“We shall be adding more content options in due course, so that fundraisers can sign up for specific content relevant to them, such as major gifts, law/policy, and leadership, or indeed content specific to a geographic region.”Email and Messenger?The bot mirrors the daily email updates that UK Fundraising has published since 2000. In fact, it goes further in that it lets fundraisers filter the type of content they receive, unlike the news updates which feature all the latest news and blog posts on the site.The bot isn’t intended to replace the email newsletter. It is simply another option for the growing numbers of people who prefer to use Messenger for updates from news sources, retailers, utilities and of course friends and family.Built by OpenThe bot was designed and built by Open, a full-service creative response agency, who helps some of the UK’s biggest charities “persuade people to do the right thing, right now”. Specifically, it was developed by Alfie Waldron, one of Open’s writers, as a side project. (Alfie was the 2016 winner of IWITOT for championing and talking with The Bee Lady). Open had been investigating the potential of chatbots for some of their clients, including a global chatbot for Unicef to launch their World Children’s Day celebration.Waldron said: “The potential uses for chatbots are endless. They’re a way to engage supporters, surprise and delight your audience, deliver great content and even process transactions. And when it comes to delivering personalised news, events and blog updates, they’re the perfect fit. This was a really exciting project to be a part of. With support from Paul de Gregorio, Open’s Director of Digital Engagement, the basic bot’s structure and functions were designed in a Friday afternoon session at Open and then built over a weekend last November. As such, it was probably the first bot to be used by a UK charity sector publication.De Gregorio said: “Howard knew that Open was exploring the potential of chatbots for our clients and came in for a chat about how UK Fundraising could integrate one into it’s offering. Before we knew it, we’d sketched out the design and functionality. Then it was just a case of building, testing and refining before the launch. We love how it’s turned out.” In the beginning, there were some efforts by UK Fundraising to introduce natural language processing functions to make it more interactive. These were scaled back due to complexity. But it remains an option to expand considerably what the bot (or another bot) can do with the extensive 23+ years of content on UK Fundraising. And indeed with partner content from other sources.last_img read more

Bring out the brooms: Baseball sweeps Cal in dominant fashion

first_imgprintTCU baseball finished their sweep of California with a 6-1 win on Sunday, marking their third straight series win to start the season. The Horned Frogs pulled ahead by a run in the first inning after senior Zach Humphreys doubled and Hunter Wolfe drove in Gray Rogers on an RBI single.The Bears threatened at the top of the fifth with a runner on first and third and no outs. Starting pitcher Russell Smith and the Frogs didn’t let the Bears take advantage while in scoring position, though, getting two strikeouts and a pop fly to end the inning.Smith retired the first 12 batters he faced and allowed one earned run through 6.1 innings pitched. He fanned eight and didn’t walk a batter on the afternoon.“I was really just attacking the zone with the fastball down and changeup late, seemed like they really were not picking up the changeup, so that was really the plan,” Smith said. Gene Wood extended the lead for the Frogs in the bottom of the fifth. Wood doubled down the first baseline and brought home Humphreys. Sam Thompson singled in the sixth inning and scored on a Rogers RBI. Cal cut into TCU’s lead in the top of the sixth inning on a throwing error when the Bears stole in a two-on two-out situation.The Frogs added the final three runs of the game in the seventh inning. Wood scored on an error and Phillip Sikes hit a two-run RBI single down the first base line. Tommy Sacco follows through on his swing against California. Photo courtesy of GoFrogs.com“We got a couple timely hits, and it’s a tough weekend to hit with the wind blowing the way it was,” head coach Jim Schlossnagle said.The Frogs held the Bears to just four hits and one run.“It was a full team effort,” Schlossnagle said. “We played really good defense despite a couple missed plays today, but I think we showed the depth of our pitching staff.”Schlossnagle was impressed with his starting pitchers all weekend.“I have always said the game begins and ends with starting pitching,” Schlossnagle said. “For the most part, we are not giving up too many free bases. We are throwing a lot of strikes and making the other team earn what they get, and that’s a good recipe for winning baseball.”The Frogs are undefeated at home, and Smith credits that to the fans. The win keeps TCU undefeated at Lupton Stadium this season — their eighth win in eight tries. Smith attributes that success to the support from their fans.“We have the best fans probably in the country or at least in the Big 12. They come out and support us well, and we play well for them,” Smith said. The Horned Frogs are back in action at Lupton Stadium on Tuesday against UTA.

Four group receive ASCA grants

One grant award is for the Center’s Don Stewart: Think/Decipher/Smile exhibition and the other is for coordinator support.The Brundidge Historical Society received a $4,200 folk arts grant for its 8th annual Pike Piddlers Storytelling Festival the last weekend in January.Troy University received a $4,230 folk arts grant for the 2014 Wiregrass Blues Festival. By Jaine Treadwell Latest Stories The Alabama State Council on the Arts (ASCA) awarded 99 grants totaling $342,695 at its Council December meeting in Montgomery.The round of grants will support arts in education, folk art, community, literature, performing and visual arts programs Jan. 1, 2014, through Sept. 30, 2014.Four Pike County arts organizations receive grant funding totaling $15,930. Troy falls to No. 13 Clemson Book Nook to reopen Email the author “The ASCA funds that we receive for coordinator support will be used for staffing necessary in handling all of the programs outside of the special programs that we facilitate.”Drinkard said the Troy-Pike Cultural Arts Center board is thrilled with the funding that the Center receives from ASCA.“We feel that the exhibitions and programs that we offer through the Troy-Pike Cultural Art Center are worthwhile and these grants are an indication that ASCA believes they are important, too,” she said.Johnny Steed, president of the Brundidge Historical Society, said, too, that ASCA grants help keep BHS folk arts programs afloat.“The Pike Piddlers Storytelling Festival is a costly event,” he said. “We bring in four nationally acclaimed storytellers each year. We decided back in 2005, that if we were going to be successful with a storytelling festival, we were going to have to get the best storytellers and it was going to cost us.”Steed said the list of storytellers that have been featured at the Pike Piddlers Storytelling Festival reads like a who’s who among storytellers.“And, we’ve been able to do that because of the support that we have gotten from the Alabama State Council on the Arts,” he said. “Without the state arts council’s support, we would be limited in what we could do.“That’s how important ASCA’s support is to us and to our community. We greatly appreciate ASCA’s support of our events and the other arts events throughout Pike County and across the state.”The Council makes grants awards to non-profit organizations, schools, universities, cities, and a wide range of community groups. ASCA funds are matched by contributions from businesses, individuals, local government and earned income by the grantee. Arts programs, assisted by Council grants, have a track record of enhancing community development, education, cultural tourism and overall quality of life in virtually all regions of the state.The Alabama State Council on the Arts is the official state arts agency of Alabama. The staff of the Council, directed by Al Head, administers the grants programs and provides technical assistance in arts planning and programming. The Council receives its support through an annual appropriation from the Alabama Legislature and funding from the National Endowment for the Arts, a federal agency.

The funding that, we, and other arts agencies receive from ASCA is based, in part, on funds they receive from the National Endowment for the Arts (NEA). So, our local arts organizations benefit from both.”Drinkard said the ASCA grant funds received in the recently grant cycle will be used to bring the Don Stewart exhibition to the Johnson Center.“Don Stewart is a Birmingham pen and ink artist,” Drinkard said. “He comes to TroyFest and will be the focus of our Art Bridges Arts Education program next year. The grant funds will assist us in getting the exhibition here, the artist’s reception and promoting this outstanding exhibition.

Year-round distribution suggests spatial segregation of two small petrel species in the South Atlantic

first_imgAimPelagic seabirds exploit large areas of ocean when acting as central-place foragers during the breeding season, and ranges are even more extensive outside the breeding period. Spatial niche partitioning is known to occur among species that breed sympatrically, but is less apparent during the non-breeding period when there is increased potential for overlap among closely related species from neighbouring island groups. This applies to several species of prion, Pachyptila spp., in the Southern Ocean; although extremely abundant, their at-sea distribution was virtually unknown because they are difficult to distinguish while at sea. To understand spatial niche partitioning at large scales, we investigated the year-round distribution of thin-billed prions (Pachyptila belcheri) from the Falkland Islands (Islas Malvinas) and Antarctic prions (Pachyptila desolata) from South Georgia.LocationSouth Atlantic Ocean.MethodsRecently, geolocation devices have become small enough to be deployed on small seabirds. During 2009–10, we tracked 20 thin-billed prions and 9 Antarctic prions with miniaturized geolocators. We applied ecological niche models to compare environmental conditions in the habitat utilized year-round.ResultsWe show that two prion species from the south-west Atlantic Ocean have divergent patterns of migration, and that this has resulted in nearly complete spatial segregation (0–5% overlap by month in the 95% kernel density polygons). Nineteen of 20 thin-billed prions migrated to an area > 3000 km east of their breeding site, whereas all Antarctic prions migrated a much shorter distance, and to the north-west. The non-breeding distribution of thin-billed prions included the waters around South Georgia, but only when the Antarctic prions were absent. The models highlighted large differences in the realized niche between the two species, and between the habitat characteristics of breeding and non-breeding areas of thin-billed and Antarctic prions.Main conclusionsOur results are consistent with the prediction that spatial niche partitioning occurs at large scales, allowing the co-existence of related species. The methods applied here will enable predictive maps of the distributions of other prion populations to be created, once data become available from other breeding sites in the Southern Ocean.last_img read more
