The house is located within the boundaries of the settlement of Kampos, at the Cycladic island of Paros. Its natural presence is enhanced by the sublime rural landscape surrounds it, which consists of cereal fields, small vineyards and olive-trees. It provides accommodation for a family of five all the year round, a situation entails a living organization, unlike the typical holiday house.Save this picture!© George MessaritakisDuring the design stage, particular emphasis was given to the analysis of local characteristics and conditions, such as the strong light of Cyclades and the wind, for everyday contact with nature and outdoor living. These greatly contributed to the design of the house, the aesthetic elaboration of which resulted from a modern and austere approach, without the use of exceeding decorative features.Save this picture!© George MessaritakisSave this picture!Floor PlanSave this picture!© George MessaritakisThe building form derives from the deconstruction of a single rectangular prism, (an archetypal building form of the island), as a starting point for the formation of a void (veranda) protected from the strong northerly winds. The removed volume is placed above the ground floor as an independent space for relaxation or hospitality, where one can enjoy unobstructed views towards Pounta area and Antiparos island, making use of a 95 m² roof terrace.Save this picture!© George MessaritakisSave this picture!© George MessaritakisOf the two rectangular prisms on the ground floor, one recedes slightly in relation to the other, in order to reveal a part of the veranda and lead to the entrance. These two volumes form the backbone of the house. The first accommodates the day-to-day living areas, the second houses the private ones, family bedrooms and bathroom, with the auxiliary spaces linking the two.Save this picture!© George MessaritakisThe orientation and shaping of the building volumes, the strategically positioned single small window in the northern side, the careful installation of a façade insulation system to avoid thermal bridging, as well as, additional elements like wooden pergolas, are all enhancing the energy performance of the dwelling in response to local conditions.Project gallerySee allShow lessLondon’s Garden Bridge Project Should be Scrapped, Report FindsArchitecture NewsWalsh College / Valerio Dewalt Train AssociatesSelected Projects Share Save this picture!© George Messaritakis+ 46 Share ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/868451/kampos-house-lantavos-projects Clipboard Photographs Houses Photographs: George Messaritakis Manufacturers Brands with products used in this architecture project “COPY” Kampos House / Lantavos ProjectsSave this projectSaveKampos House / Lantavos Projects Architects: Lantavos Projects Area Area of this architecture project 2016 Greece ArchDaily “COPY” Kampos House / Lantavos Projects Year: Manufacturers: Apavisa, BTicino, GSI, BRIGHT, CARRON, FABBRO BRUNO Products translation missing: en-US.post.svg.material_description ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/868451/kampos-house-lantavos-projects Clipboard CopyHouses•Kampos, Greece CopyAbout this officeLantavos ProjectsOfficeFollowProductConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesKamposGreecePublished on April 07, 2017Cite: “Kampos House / Lantavos Projects” 07 Apr 2017.

Platypus Digital’s free email marketing course explains What the course coversThe course, available from the Why Do Digital website, covers:The trends – and why they mean you need to take digital seriouslyFundraising – why keeping your eggs out of the digital fundraising basket puts your charity at riskComms – why your communications team is digital first, whether they like it or notService delivery – why you can’t deliver your service without digital Culture – why you can’t do anything without the right cultureAfter you sign up for free, you will receive one email every morning, each of which takes around two minutes to read, for 10 consecutive days. Platypus Digital, the charity digital marketing agency, has created a free email marketing course entitled ‘Why do digital?’ It is designed to show CEOs, trustees and funders why they need to use digital technology, rather than what or how to do it.Its objective is, by winning that argument, to help release more funding for digital activities, a commonly-reported challenge faced by many fundraisers.Matt Collins, Managing Director of Platypus Digital, believes that there is too much debate in charities about what to do with digital tools (usually it is ‘more digital’) or how to do it, such as how to use particular digital platforms effectively.These debates, he argues, don’t usually help to solve the challenge of a lack of commitment to take full advantage of the opportunities digital provides.The 10-stage email course is designed for charity staff to work their way through on their daily commute. Collins says that it will “arm you with the arguments you need to convince senior management by the time you get to work”.He added: “It’s also perfect for people who want to understand the opportunities digital creates for their charity themselves.” About Howard Lake Howard Lake is a digital fundraising entrepreneur.

We too believe that people don’t buy what you do, they buy why you do it.“We looked around the current messages about adoption of digital in charities, and realised the question ‘Why should we do digital?’ simply wasn’t being answered – everything covered what to do and how to do it. So we wanted to take the debate back a step, and try to answer that absolutely fundamental question.“We strongly believe that lack of funding is the big problem. And a sector that fully understands why it should do digital will soon find that to be less of a problem.”
SHARE By Hoosier Ag Today – Apr 26, 2018 Facebook Twitter U.S. Ethanol Production Hits 2nd Lowest level in Over a Year SHARE According to EIA data analyzed by the Renewable Fuels Association, ethanol production averaged 985,000 barrels per day (b/d)—or 41.37 million gallons daily—down 25,000 b/d from the prior week. This is the first time in 15 weeks that production settled below 1 million b/d, dipping to the second-lowest output in 80 weeks. As a result, the four-week average for ethanol production receded to a 27-week low of 1.016 million b/d for an annualized rate of 15.58 billion gallons.Despite the cut in output, stocks reversed their five-week fall with a 1.9% increase over last week to 21.7 million barrels.Average weekly gasoline demand decreased 7.9% from last week’s record high to 381.5 million gallons (9.083 million barrels) daily. This is equivalent to 139.24 billion gallons annualized. Refiner/blender input of ethanol decreased 0.7% to 911,000 b/d, equivalent to 13.97 billion gallons annualized. The ethanol content in gasoline supplied to the market averaged 10.03%, up from 9.30% the previous week and the first week this year to breach the 10% threshold. Expressed as a percentage of daily gasoline demand, daily ethanol production increased to 10.84%.Source: RFA Facebook Twitter Home Energy U.S. Ethanol Production Hits 2nd Lowest level in Over a Year Previous articleNFU Board of Directors Opposes Current House Farm BillNext articleIndiana Remains a Top State for Cover Crops Hoosier Ag Today

One of the deceased in this case was a house maker. In this case, the Motor Accident Claims Tribunal awarded a total sum of Rs 40.71 lakhs for both deceased to the claimants. Partly allowing the appeal filed by Insurance Company, the High Court reversed the addition of future prospects.Allowing the appeal filed by claimants, the bench enhanced the total motor accident compensation of Rs 22 lakhs awarded by the High Court to the claimants by Rs 11.20 lakhs to reach a new total of Rs 33.20 lakhs. The judge penned a separate opinion while concurring with the judgment authored by Justice Surya Kant. In his opinion, the Judge noted that there are two distinct categories of situations wherein the Court determines notional income of a victim. The first category of cases relates to those wherein the victim was employed, but the claimants are not able to prove her actual income, before the Court. In such a situation, the Court “guesses” the income of the victim on the basis of the evidence on record, like the quality of life being led by the victim and her family, the general earning of an individual employed in that field, the qualifications of the victim, and other considerations, the judge said.The second category of cases, the judge said, relates to those situations wherein the Court is called upon to determine the income of a nonearning victim, such as a child, a student or a homemaker. In this context, the judge noted that in India, according to the 2011 Census, nearly 159.85 million women stated that “household work” was their main occupation, as compared to only 5.79 million men. The judge made the following observations:”The sheer amount of time and effort that is dedicated to household work by individuals, who are more likely to be women than men, is not surprising when one considers the plethora of activities a house maker undertakes. A house maker often prepares food for the entire family, manages the procurement of groceries and other household shopping needs, cleans and manages the house and its surroundings, undertakes decoration, repairs and maintenance work, looks after the needs of the children and any aged member of the household, manages budgets and so much more. In rural households, they often also assist in the sowing, harvesting and transplanting activities in the field, apart from tending cattle.””The issue of fixing notional income for a homemaker, therefore, serves extremely important functions. It is a recognition of the multitude of women who are engaged in this activity, whether by choice or as a result of social/cultural norms. It signals to society at large that the law and the Courts of the land believe in the value of the labour, services and sacrifices of homemakers. It is an acceptance of the idea that these activities contribute in a very real way to the economic condition of the family, and the economy of the nation, regardless of the fact that it may have been traditionally excluded from economic analyses. It is a reflection of changing attitudes and mindsets and of our international law obligations. And, most importantly, it is a step towards the constitutional vision of social equality and ensuring dignity of life to all individuals.”Observing thus, the judge summarized his opinion regarding the issue of calculation of notional income for homemakers and the grant of future prospects with respect to them, as follows:Grant of compensation, on a pecuniary basis, with respect to a homemaker, is a settled proposition of law. Taking into account the gendered nature of housework, with an overwhelming percentage of women being engaged in the same as compared to men, the fixing of notional income of a homemaker attains special significance. It becomes a recognition of the work, labour and sacrifices of homemakers and a reflection of changing attitudes. It is also in furtherance of our nation’s international law obligations and our constitutional vision of social equality and ensuring dignity to all.Various methods can be employed by the Court to fix the notional income of a homemaker, depending on the facts and circumstances of the case. The Court should ensure while choosing the method, and fixing the notional income, that the same is just in the facts and circumstances of the particular case, neither assessing the compensation too conservatively, nor too liberally.The granting of future prospects, on the notional income calculated in such cases, is a component of just compensation.
