Jonathan Davies great solo effort against the Dragons

first_imgWednesday Sep 29, 2010 Jonathan Davies great solo effort against the Dragons The Scarlets sit near the top of the table in the Magners League after their 27-14 win over the Dragons in Newport on Friday. Scarlets scored three first half tries, with Jonathan Davies set up one and then scoring this solo effort shortly afterwards.Davies, sometimes referred to as Jon to avoid confusion with his commentating namesake, has shown this season that he isnt far away from making a very competent step up to being a regular international player.Still just 22, Davies has all the attributes and possesses incredible acceleration as well as brute strength. He is deceptively quick and is solid on defence. Hes now scored six tries in three games, and is many peoples teamsheets as the starting center for Wales while Jamie Roberts is sidelined.On Friday night he earned another Man of the Match award after he put in a great showing, setting up a nice try for young George North, then scoring this impressive individual try.He did pick up a slight ankle niggle, but looks to be okay for this upcoming weekends derby clash with local rivals Ospreys at Parc y Scarlets on Saturday night.

The “Green Concept Home” is a two-story single-family residence located in Bellevue, Washington. This 2,840 sqf house has a contemporary design and is owned, designed and built by husband and wife team David Huang and Millie Leung. Designed by Modus V Studio Architects, the house broke ground in September 2009 and was completed the following year in September 2010.Save this picture!sectionThe project aims to build an environmentally friendly and sustainable home that moves our society towards more sustainable living. The house implemented many concepts of green designs – including structural insulated panels (SIPs), rainwater harvesting system, solar hot water heater, tankless hot water heater, heat recovery ventilator, radiant floor heating, solar orientation, Energy Star appliances, Energy Star metal roof, Energy Star windows, low-flow water fixtures, no VOCs paints, renewable and environmentally friendly materials and drought-tolerant landscaping. Our goal is to minimize energy and water usage, maximize the comfort for the residents and to create a holistic and sustainable way of life. Save this picture!© Millie LeungSpecial care was also taken during construction to minimize waste and to recycle majority of the waste. The waste was sent to a local recycling facility with a 95%+ diversion rate. Save this picture!floor planThe Green Concept Home, which we also nick-named the “H-House”, has a floor plan that takes a shape of the letter “H”. The house is separated into Eastern and Western wings of the “H”. The Western wing consists of the “public” spaces such as living room, kitchen, dining room, and office. This is a very open and lofty space, with high ceiling (20 ft) above the living room and the office overlooking the living room. There are no walls built between the different rooms, so it becomes a great space that the day activities are carried out. The space is filled with lights from Southern and Northern exposure, while shielded from Western suns. The Eastern wing of the house consists of the “private” spaces such as all the bedrooms, guest room, mechanical room and garage. Contrary to the other wing, the Eastern wing is very enclosed, protected, and intimate, becoming the space where the family will rest at night. The design strategy of clearly separating the day-activity spaces with night-resting spaces allow for an easy separation of heating zones. It also provides an acoustic barrier between the noisier part of the house – the living room/kitchen – and the bedrooms. Save this picture!© Millie LeungThroughout the project’s preparation, we have done intensive research and cost comparison, striving to make going green as affordable as possible without sacrificing functionality, comfort and style. Save this picture!sectionAnother goal of this project is about sharing information and lessons we have learned. Throughout our research, design, preparation and construction, we have documented information collected and lessons learned on our project website www.greenconcepthome.com. We have also arranged free educational public tours during construction. By doing so, we hope to increase public awareness on green building. Although many fine green demonstration houses have already been built throughout the country, there needs to be many, many more of them, until there are enough so that virtually everyone has a chance to experience them. We hope that through media outreach and educational presentations, we can do our part to increase public awareness to encourage more green buildings in the future and a greener environment for generations to come.Save this picture!© Millie LeungProject gallerySee allShow lessHenry Gifford Files Opposition to USGBC’s Motion to Dismiss Amended ComplaintArticlesArt and Archeological Museum / CVDB ArquitectosArticles Share Year:  “COPY” Houses “COPY” ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/135212/green-concept-home-modus-v-studio-architects Clipboard United States CopyAbout this officeModus V Studio ArchitectsOfficeFollow#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesSustainabilityHousesBellevueUnited StatesPublished on May 16, 2011Cite: “Green Concept Home / Modus V Studio Architects” 16 May 2011.

Montreal-based yh2 introduces TRIPTYCH, a three-pavilion residence carefully nestled in lakeside surroundings. The house, with its crisp lines and sober palette, was built on a sloping site overlooking a small lake in the Laurentian Mountains, one hundred kilometres from Montreal.Save this picture!© Maxime BrouilletThe architects designed this building with a classical triptych in mind. It features a central piece, with direct views of Lac St-Cyr, and two side pavilions meant to be in more intimate contact with the nearby trees. The project is about the idea of fragmentation; it evolved from the desire to integrate three discrete shapes among existing trees on naturally sloping grounds.Save this picture!© Maxime BrouilletEach one of the three volumes sets the stage for a specific natural tableau, framed by the building’s geometry. The roofs, which slope up in three directions from the centre of the house, accentuate the views.Save this picture!© Maxime BrouilletSave this picture!Level 1 floor PlanSave this picture!© Maxime BrouilletThe kitchen and an adjoining office occupy the central block with generous openings towards the lake. The living room is accessed through a glass link, located east. The room’s highest point is at the window and attracts the eye towards the sky. The master bedroom, exposed to the morning sun, is directly below the living room and sits firmly on the ground thanks to the site’s natural slope. It is reached through a sculptural staircase that appears to be floating in the air with its suspended last step.Save this picture!© Maxime BrouilletLooking west, a second side pavilion is set at a slight angle from the rest of the house. It allows for separate quarters available for friends and guests. Located in close proximity to the house’s main entrance, the guest suite is more private than the rest of the building and is signalled by a switch in floor materials, from hardwood to polished concrete. The interior parking garage and a secondary entrance are located below.Save this picture!Basement & Ground floor PlansThe three pavilions are linked together through two glassed-in passageways, which create a formal separation between the project’s main elements. The front door is discreetly inserted in the passageway leading to the guest suite. The entrance area is lined with the same material as that used on the façades, blurring the boundaries between interiors and exteriors. On the opposite side of the central pavilion, the passageway which leads to the living room doubles as a dining space and is totally open to the outside. Night lighting is provided through a suspended aluminum ceiling, which has been carefully cut to create a sensation of being under a forest canopy.Save this picture!© Maxime BrouilletTRIPTYCH features mostly natural materials. The façades are sheathed with Eastern cedar planks, treated to appear weathered by time. Interior walls and ceilings are either gypsum board or white cedar while the floors are white oak or polished concrete. Wide patio doors, with black aluminum casings, frame the ever-changing views. A patio area extends from the kitchen and dining spaces towards the lake. The building’s geometry creates a theatrical stage for the surrounding nature.Save this picture!© Maxime BrouilletProject gallerySee allShow lessClifton Hill House / Field Office ArchitectureSelected ProjectsThe New Mixtape Featuring Your Favorite DesignersArchitecture News Share Save this picture!© Maxime Brouillet+ 26Curated by Fernanda Castro Share ArchDaily Area:  2500 ft² Year Completion year of this architecture project 2018 Canada Year:  CopyAbout this officeYH2 ArchitectureOfficeFollowProductsWoodGlass#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesInterior DesignResidential InteriorsHouse InteriorsWentworth-NordCanadaPublished on December 30, 2018Cite: “TRIPTYCH / YH2 Architecture” 30 Dec 2018.

Well, we haven’t, but you can buy an “I Eat Chuggers” sweatshirt online if you want.Like it or not, “chugger” has entered the lexicon as a less than complimentary term for the face-to-face or direct dialogue street fundraiser. Short for “charity mugger”, it’s a useful shorthand for the many newspaper reporters who have run scare stories about the high profile and evidently successful method of regular donor recruitment.While it doesn’t do the fundraising profession, the word is funny, so we were amused to spot an anti-chugger sweatshirt for sale. It is yours for $25.99. In fact, it was spotted by “The Raizer”, the back-page gossip and wag at Professional Fundraising magazine, who this month kindly provided the Web address for those wishing to buy one.

The newspaper surveyed 20 charity cards and found the range of return to the charity varied from 10 per cent to 80 per cent. The Irish Times found that in most cases it was impossible to tell from the cards what the return was to charity. Two exceptions were Marks and Spencer cards sold in Ireland, which is giving 10 per cent of the sales price to Focus Ireland, and Debenhams, which is giving 20 per cent to the ISPCC.Not surprisingly, buying cards directly from the charity gives a much larger percentage to the charity. The Irish Cancer Society says 80 per cent of revenues goes to their organisation if people buy directly from them but as little is 10 per cent if people buy their cards from Boots.

The announcement was made at a reception, attended by the Duchess and famous children’s authors, which marked 15 years of the National Literacy Trust’s programme for children in disadvantaged communities.A class of thirty children aged nine and ten from St Augustine’s CE Primary School in Westminster were the lucky winners of a “bus journey of reading” which saw the bus travel down London’s Pall Mall to Clarence House to collect Her Royal Highness The Duchess of Cornwall.Armed with their ‘golden tickets’, the youngsters boarding the Routemaster number 15 bus were greeted by bus conductor Wally (of Where’s Wally? fame) and enjoyed storytelling and activity sessions by children’s authors including Jeremy Strong and Tommy Donbavand.After the bus journey, The Duchess of Cornwall met supporters past and present at a reception to celebrate the work of the charity’s National Young Readers’ Programme in encouraging hundreds of thousands of disadvantaged youngsters to develop a love of reading.Director of the National Literacy Trust, Jonathan Douglas, said: “Her Royal Highness’s support will help us to ensure children and adults across the UK have the literacy skills they need for a happier, healthier and more prosperous life”.www.literacytrust.org.uk  24 total views,  1 views today AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis Tagged with: Celebrity Events AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis About Howard Lake Howard Lake is a digital fundraising entrepreneur.

Giant egg hunt in London aims to raise £2m for two charities

first_imgOver 200 large decorated eggs will be hidden around central London next year as part of an attempt to raise £1 million each for Elephant Family and Action for Children. The Big Egg Hunt will begin on Shrove Tuesday, 21 February 2012, and last for 40 days.Each 2.5 foot fibreglass egg will be individually decorated by leading artists, designers, architects and jewellers. Participants in the hunt can use a map or a mobile app to follow clues to find the eggs. Participants will pay a small fee to take part.

Big Lottery Fund & Heritage Lottery Fund take on new names to incorporate the National Lottery

first_imgWATCH: Making a difference Big Lottery Fund & Heritage Lottery Fund take on new names to incorporate the National Lottery Melanie May | 29 January 2019 | News The Big Lottery Fund and the Heritage Lottery Fund have today (29 January) adopted their name changes to incorporate The National Lottery. The changes were first announced last September, and are to make a clearer link between playing The National Lottery and the good causes that benefit. The Big Lottery Fund changes its name today to The National Lottery Community Fund, while the Heritage Lottery Fund will now be known as The National Lottery Heritage Fund. Both organisations have also refreshed their brand identities to incorporate The National Lottery’s crossed-fingers.The changes come in The National Lottery’s 25th anniversary year. The first draw took place in November 1994 with more than £30 million raised each week for a variety of good causes since then.Dawn Austwick, Chief Executive of The National Lottery Community Fund, said:“National Lottery funding for good causes changes lives. As the largest community funder in the UK, we see the amazing achievements of thousands of people-led projects every year. From social groups for young carers to baking classes for the older generation, from craft workshops in rurally isolated areas to support sessions for new parents, communities are thriving thanks to The National Lottery. By deepening the connection between players and the great projects they are supporting, we can make sure more people understand the incredible difference they make across the UK.”Ros Kerslake, The National Lottery Heritage Fund CEO, said: Advertisement  276 total views,  2 views today AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis52 “In 25 years The National Lottery has transformed the UK. Historic high streets and public parks have been revitalised; native wildlife has been protected; our museums and cultural attractions are now world-class; and stories and memories have been preserved. But beyond the millionaires it’s created, many people simply aren’t aware of its impact on our daily lives. By putting The National Lottery brand front and centre of our own, we hope to help change that.”Last year, the National Lottery Community Fund, as the Big Lottery Fund, gave out £508.5 million of National Lottery funding to community projects across the UK with over 11,000 projects benefitting.  The Fund expects that its old logo may continue to be used for some time as the many small grassroots and projects it funds switch across as and when they are creating new print materials. The Fund has communicated to groups to support them in updating digital materials and to reassure them that they can continue to use previously printed materials or merchandise until they are ready to order new ones.The National Lottery Heritage Fund has invested almost £8 billion in UK heritage projects so far. The announcement of its new identity comes ahead of the unveiling of its next strategic National Lottery Funding Framework that sets out its priorities for the next five year.  More information about its funding priorities will be available from 30 January.  Tagged with: Big Lottery Fund Heritage Lottery Fund National Lottery [youtube]https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=t2JSIPkcfso[/youtube]  275 total views,  1 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.
