Following ranching tradition, work on the home is envisioned as a continuous process based on resource availability rather than a finalized object. For this reason, standardized wood frame construction was interwoven within a series of heavier timber members to facilitate ease of client labor and modification. Save this picture!Overlooking a pond to the south, a reflective shield of galvanized corrugated metal protects the primary structure and conditioned spaces while creating interstitial zones of outdoor space. Cutouts and openings in the reflective shield are strategically placed to frame views to the countryside, pond, and vehicular approach.  Save this picture!PlansThrough the orientation and form of the reflective shield, the building employs basic principles of passive sustainable design to take advantage of natural daylight and ventilation while controlling solar heat gain. Save this picture!The primary use of reflective sheet metal, stucco, exposed wood and natural stones found on the site, as well as the shed-like form of the protective enclosure acknowledge the unique material and vernacular precedents of the Hill Country region in a contemporary design.Save this picture!Project gallerySee allShow lessEagle Nest Hut Proposal / Piero CerattiArticles(RE)Configured-Assemblage / WE-DESIGNS.ORG, LLC and XP& ArchitectureArticles Share Ottmers House / Vincent Snyder Architects Ottmers House / Vincent Snyder ArchitectsSave this projectSaveOttmers House / Vincent Snyder Architects Houseslast_img read more

Press release: Guidance for GPs to access extra flu vaccines as part of expanded vaccination programme

first_imgThis guidance explains the process that GPs should follow to access the government’s additional vaccines from the central supply.As part of the tried-and-tested approach to delivering vaccination at scale, should GPs deliver all vaccines from their own stock, they can place orders from mid-October with suppliers for the government-secured stock to be delivered from November. These vaccines will be provided to those at-risk groups like 65s and over, pregnant women and those with pre-existing conditions, as well as frontline health and social care workers.GPs and pharmacies are responsible for procuring flu vaccine. However in addition to this, the government has agreed to procure over 8 million vaccines which providers can access once their own stock is empty to help deliver the vaccine to 30 million people.Over 10 million vaccines have already been delivered, with the other 20 million scheduled for delivery in October, November and December. As flu levels generally do not begin to rise until December, people do not have to rush to get vaccinated in September or October, as the vaccination programme continues right up until and into the flu season.Deputy Chief Medical Officer Jonathan Van-Tam said: If you are in an eligible group, or if you are a frontline health or social care worker, the flu vaccination will help to protect you and your loved ones this winter. That is very important at a time when COVID-19 is an additional threat. If you’re eligible for a free flu vaccine, you will be contacted by the NHS to arrange an appointment. When that happens, please take advantage of this important protection. Vaccines are already being given to at-risk groups in GPs and pharmacies and will continue over the winter months Additional vaccines have been secured by government to allow providers to vaccinate the expanded eligible groups Those eligible for the free flu vaccine, alongside frontline health and social care workers, have already begun to receive their vaccinations. Those aged 50 to 64 will also be eligible for a free vaccine but will be invited later in the season. Once they’re invited, they will be eligible to receive vaccines from the government-secured supply.The flu vaccination programme will run throughout the winter months and into January, so anyone eligible for a vaccine will be able to receive one. The flu season tends to start in December, but vaccination at any point in the season is valuable protection.Background informationGP guidance has been issued directly to providers.A pre-set proportion of this additional stock will also be made available to trusts and community pharmacy, and the arrangements for them to order against this stock will be confirmed shortly.center_img Frontline NHS staff are working harder than ever to prepare for winter and have seen significant increase in demand for the flu vaccination, so access to additional supply will be very well received by GPs and patients alike. GPs and pharmacies will continue to offer regular, timely flu vaccines to eligible groups, making particular efforts to prioritise the most vulnerable. Dr Raj Patel, NHS Deputy National Medical Director of Primary Care, said:last_img read more

Vermont organizations receive $400,000 to assist home owners

first_imgSix Vermont organizations received a total of nearly $400,000 as US Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack selected recipients in 50 states and the Commonwealth of Puerto Rico for grants to make critical repairs and improve housing conditions for low- and very-low-income rural residents. The support Vilsack announced is provided through USDA Rural Development’s Housing Preservation Grants (HPG) program. Funds are provided to intermediaries such as town or county governments, public agencies, federally recognized Indian Tribes, and non-profit and faith-based and community organizations. These organizations then distribute the grants to homeowners and owners of multi-family rental properties or cooperative dwellings who rent to low- and very-low-income residents. Grants may be used to make general repairs, such as installing or improving plumbing or providing or enhancing access to people with disabilities. Funds may also be used to weatherize and make homes more energy efficient. The following is a complete list of recipients. The funding, a total of $399,918, is contingent upon the recipient meeting the terms of the grant agreement. Central Vermont Community Land Trust ‘ $50,000Champlain Housing Loan Fund ‘ $50,000Gilman Housing Trust, Inc. ‘ $83,306Northeast Employment and Training ‘ $83,306Southeastern Vermont Community Action ‘ $50,000Vermont Center for Independent Living ‘ $83,306 ‘Our investment under this program will leverage $733,000 of other sources of funds to help low and very low homeowners and renters’, said Molly Lambert, State Director USDA Rural Development.  ‘We are proud of our partnerships with the organizations that serve these citizens of our state’, Lambert said. The funds will be used for weatherization, access modification for disabled residents, and essential home repairs.’ Since taking office, President Obama’s Administration has taken historic steps to improve the lives of rural Americans, put people back to work and build thriving economies in rural communities. From proposing the American Jobs Act to establishing the first-ever White House Rural Council ‘ chaired by Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack ‘ the President wants the federal government to be the best possible partner for rural businesses and entrepreneurs creating job opportunities and for people who want to live, work, and raise their families in rural communities. USDA, through its Rural Development mission area, administers and manages housing, business and community infrastructure and facility programs through a national network of state and local offices. Rural Development has an existing portfolio of more than $155 billion in loans and loan guarantees. These programs are designed to improve the economic stability of rural communities, businesses, residents, farmers and ranchers and improve the quality of life in rural America.  Visit http://www.rurdev.usda.gov(link is external) for additional information about the agency’s programs.MONTPELIER VT-November 8, 2011 ‘last_img read more

LSU star running back Derrius Guice ruled out for Syracuse game

first_img Published on September 20, 2017 at 11:57 am Contact Matthew: [email protected] | @MatthewGut21 Guice sat out practice Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday, recovering from what Orgeron said Monday is a “minor injury,” according to Nola.com. Guice missed the last quarter and a half of LSU’s loss against Mississippi State. The junior took 15 carries for 76 yards last week and has 57 rushes for 300 yards and four touchdowns this season.Orgeron’s best player is Guice, whom a college football coach told Sports Illustrated “might be a better back than Leonard Fournette,” because he’s “harder to tackle because he runs with so much juice guys can’t corral him.”“He’s a very, very talented back,” SU head coach Dino Babers said Monday. “I think he’s different from the starter last year. I think he’s more complete. I think he can catch passes, I think he can run, and he’s tough between the tackles. He’s one of those guys that gets six, eight, 10, then he goes for 20, then he goes for 40. He’s going to be very difficult to stop.”Senior Darrel Williams has taken the second-most snaps on the LSU roster. He has one start this year, 28 carries for 159 yards and four rushing touchdowns.On the ACC coaches teleconference call, Syracuse coach Dino Babers said he thought his team will see Guice dressed out on Saturday.“That guy is a competitor,” Babers said, “I’m sure he’s going to be out there.”Regardless, Syracuse will not have to face one of the top tailbacks in the country, the same way it did in the SU-LSU matchup two years ago. Tigers running back and 2017 NFL Draft No. 4 overall pick Leonard Fournette ran for two touchdowns and 244 yards in a 34-24 win at the Carrier Dome.Syracuse is 1-2 all-time against the Tigers, its lone win coming at the 1989 Hall of Fame Bowl in Tampa, Florida, a 23-10 victory. Syracuse lost the teams’ first meeting, in New Orleans, 10-13 in  the 1964 season and lost the teams’ last meeting, 2015, 34-24 at the Dome.Game time is scheduled Saturday for 7 p.m. from Death Valley on ESPN2.Additional notes from the ACC and SEC teleconferences:Babers on LSU OC Matt Canada, who served the same role at Pittsburgh last season, a 76-61 SU loss: “What we saw, we couldn’t stop at Pitt. In a sense, he’s more dangerous than he’s ever been.”On whether freshman running back Markenzy Pierre, who fumbled on his second carry last week, will get early snaps: “Ball security is job security in our program.”Orgeron on Syracuse: “I think they have a great scheme. His offensive scheme is very hard to defend. They have the right QB and are playing better defense.”CORRECTION: In a previous version of this post, Markenzy Pierre was misnamed. The Daily Orange regrets this error. Comments UPDATED: Sept. 20, 2017 at 1:16 a.m.No. 25 Louisiana State star running back Derrius Guice has been ruled out for Saturday’s game against Syracuse, Tigers head coach Ed Orgeron said Wednesday night on his radio show.“He will not play this week,” Orgeron said, “but he is getting better.”Wednesday morning on the SEC coaches teleconference, Orgeron said he was unsure whether Guice would play.center_img Facebook Twitter Google+last_img read more
