Okinawa, once called the Ryukyu Kingdom, has been blessed with rich forest and ocean resources.Save this picture!© Koichi TorimuraThe Okinawan people organised a unique social system by gradually adopting the culture and latest technologies of their neighbors while carefully adapting and integrating them to their particular environment. They cultivated particular lifestyles based on their natural surroundings, and thus were able to create a sustainable relationship with nature.  Save this picture!© Koichi TorimuraHowever, due to the constant change of governing bodies, and rapid inflow of new technologies since the Industrial Revolution, they lost touch with this delicate balance between people and nature. The architecture was no exception. The vernacular buildings were replaced by newly-imported conventional construction methods that placed a huge emphasis on convenience and safety. This led to the loss of the Okinawan cultural identity in addition to damaging the local scenery. The extent of the economic impact can be observed the concentration of wealth among the few, and consequently the architectural gap between the rich and the poor has become strikingly pronounced throughout the region’s towns and cities. Now more than ever, I see an architectural environment typical of the coffee belt, that is, the obscene contrast between the magnificent resorts and the impoverished conditions of local neighborhoods. Save this picture!© Koichi TorimuraSave this picture!Floor PlanSave this picture!© Koichi TorimuraHaving said that, it is important to recognize this chain of events not as the capitalist economy destroying tradition, but rather as the result of the haphazard adaptation of modern technology without allowing it to undergo the process of indigenization.Save this picture!Structure SystemNow that the Information Age is in the process of maturity, we are facing a new challenge to course-correct this trend. But more importantly, it is an opportunity. By connecting new technologies and galvanizing the intelligence of local communities, I aim to nurture a new form of architecture that is indigenized, vernacular, and symbiotic with nature. By doing so, I believe Okinawa can build a rich, distinctive architectural environment once again.Save this picture!© Koichi TorimuraIt is with this wish that I built Shinminka. I tried not to be too nostalgic about the past, reasoned inductively, and looked through the lens of modern architecture. While it might be true that in many cases, the end result ended up in line with traditional Japanese architecture, some design progress has certainly been made. Save this picture!SectionThis progress becomes evident when we examine two classical conflicts in Japanese architecture. First is the conflict between lateral strength of the structure against natural disasters—particularly typhoons in case of Okinawa—and ventilation to prevent humidity and to provide openness. The stronger the structure, the less ventilation there will be; hence the more humidity will remain inside, and it will also prevent openness. Second is the conflict between wind load and the size of the eaves. The larger the eaves, the more wind load there will be. The smaller the eaves, the less sunshine they can shield the interior from. (N.B. sunshine is quite strong in Okinawa in summer.) It was necessary to create solutions for both of these issues through design.Save this picture!© Koichi TorimuraUsually to ensure lateral strength, braces are placed parallel to the walls. But by designing this way, ventilation and openness will be limited. Hence, my idea was to place braces radially toward the outside, connecting to outer columns of the building. At the same time, the roofs (the eaves) are extended to those outer columns to secure the right size and to control wind load. Thus the design of the 12 braces and outer columns provides sufficient lateral strength and works against wind load, even in the face of typhoons.Save this picture!© Koichi TorimuraIn this way I freed the structure from the necessity of walls; for the first time in my design it is possible to employ glass windows on all four sides of the building. The glass windows provide more than enough ventilation and openness to the outside environment. Seamless transition from outside nature to architecture had been realised. Save this picture!© Koichi TorimuraThis project has been completed, but I do believe there is space for further development and other possibilities. I hope Shinminka will serve as a good case study for the local architecture of Japan, and will act as a good guide to the general direction our architecture should go towards in the future.   Save this picture!© Koichi TorimuraProject gallerySee allShow lessDeskopolitan / MoreySmithSelected ProjectsCall for 360 Videos and Virtual Reality ToursCall for Submissions Share Japan Photographs 2016 Year:  Housescenter_img CopyHouses•Motobu, Japan SHINMINKA / ISSHOArchitects ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/869100/shinminka-isshoarchitects Clipboard Projects Photographs:  Koichi Torimura Manufacturers Brands with products used in this architecture project ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/869100/shinminka-isshoarchitects Clipboard “COPY” SHINMINKA / ISSHOArchitectsSave this projectSaveSHINMINKA / ISSHOArchitects CopyAbout this officeISSHOArchitectsOfficeFollowProductWood#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesMotobuJapanPublished on April 17, 2017Cite: “SHINMINKA / ISSHOArchitects” 16 Apr 2017.

County officials expect strong turnout on Super Tuesday

first_imgFacebook printIn this Friday, Feb. 28, 2020 photo, voters wait in line at an early polling site in San Antonio. California and Texas are the most populous states in the nation and the biggest delegate prizes for the candidates, yet they also present a stark contrast in voting laws. (AP Photo/Eric Gay)After months of campaigning, voters head to the polls today to weigh in on everything from presidential candidates to statewide propositions. After a robust early voting period that saw Democratic turnout rise, county election officials are expecting a strong turnout. Heider Garcia, Tarrant County’s elections administrator, said several changes in the county’s elections process could boost numbers.Voters are now able to vote at any polling location in the county, rather than being restricted to a specific polling place, Garcia said.The county is also working with six transportation services to provide free transportation to polling locations.  The chance of rain today might factor into voter turnout numbers. Sarah Barnes, a meteorologist with the National Weather Service, said there is a 30% chance of rain.Barnes said while people in the area should only expect “a little under a quarter-inch” of rain, some drivers are less inclined to be on the roads during showers.A percent chance of rain means rain will only cover a certain percentage of a given area, so whether someone experiences rain depends on their location. There is no way to predict which specific parts of Tarrant County will receive rain, but most of the showers will be concentrated in the southern counties of Central Texas, she said.Chances of rain in Central Texas on Tuesday are highest in the southern counties. Photo courtesy of the National Weather ServiceVoters will see the names of some candidates who dropped out of the race just before election day on their ballots, including Amy Klobuchar and Pete Buttigieg. Klobuchar and Buttigieg are both endorsing Vice President Joe Biden. People who voted early cannot recast their ballot if their chosen candidate dropped out before election day, Garcia said. Garcia said people should keep in mind the importance of their vote.“The spirit of it all is that [elections] are when we have a say in how things are done,” he said. “No matter what your position is, every vote matters.”  Alexandra Langhttps://www.tcu360.com/author/alexandra-lang/ Twitter The Skiff: April 8, 2021 Facebook The Skiff Graduation Issue: April 22, 2021 Alexandra Lang Linkedin Alexandra Langhttps://www.tcu360.com/author/alexandra-lang/ + posts The Skiff: April 1, 2021 In this Friday, Feb. 28, 2020 photo, voters wait in line at an early polling site in San Antonio.

Sisense Unveils Sisense Fusion, an AI-Driven Analytics Platform Designed to Make Data Analytics Simple,…

first_img Twitter Pinterest Facebook NEW YORK–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Feb 9, 2021– Sisense, the leading AI-driven platform for infusing analytics everywhere, today announced Sisense Fusion. Optimized to bring actionable intelligence to employees and customers, Sisense Fusion helps organizations infuse analytics everywhere, whether that is to provide more value to their customers, transform their business or generate new products and innovations. Sisense does this by going beyond the dashboard to allow users to build customized analytic experiences inside their customer and employee-facing applications for delivering analytics to people – when and where they need them. Gartner predicts, by 2025, data stories will be the most widespread way of consuming analytics and 75 percent of stories will be automatically generated using augmented analytics techniques.” 1 However, in a recent Harvard Business Review Analytic Services survey commissioned by Sisense, only 24 percent of total respondents said they are even moderately successful in using analyzed data effectively 2. Many companies aren’t achieving the strategic benefits that they expect after making expensive data investments. A major hurdle for effective data-driven insights is that they are not provided in context or in easily consumable and actionable formats, making it difficult for decision-makers to take action. “Sisense empowers businesses, their partners and customers to infuse analytics everywhere, and act on their data at the right time, every time. For too long, users have been drowning in the complexity of data and don’t know what actions to take,” said Ashley Kramer, Chief Product and Marketing Officer at Sisense. “We are removing these hurdles and delivering actionable intelligence where people work, in their applications, workflows and business process so they can focus on innovation and disrupt markets.” Shaul Shalev, Safety Analytics & Innovation Manager at Air Canada, a Sisense customer said, “Presenting relevant dashboards and stats to executive stakeholders is useful and important. But even better is providing access to actionable data to front-line employees empowering them to make immediate decisions. This improves safety in real-time for both passengers and flight staff.” Luma Health has rapidly advanced from startup to award-winning industry leader in digital health. With Sisense as their infused analytics platform, their teams are able to release new, timely offerings in a matter of weeks. Aditya Bansod, Co-Founder and CTO of Luma Health said, “In times of crisis, people need insight they can act on immediately. The teams at Luma Health were able to use data from Sisense to analyze, recognize and address the unpredictable swings in patient behavior that the outbreak of COVID-19 and the release of the vaccines produced, harnessing and delivering timely insights directly to our providers.” “While self-service has been a positive development in data-driven decision making, organizations are now struggling with too many insights and too few well-informed actions,” said Doug Henschen, Vice President and Principal Analyst at Constellation Research. “Embedded analytics approaches not only save time, they ensure that curated analytics based on known, reliable data sources and relevant analyses are presented where they are needed, so users can make real-time decisions and take action.” (Complimentary Constellation report available here ). Sisense Fusion enhances every decision and empowers both customers and employees by providing actionable intelligence. Businesses can embed analytics into customer-facing applications to differentiate their products and improve the overall experience. Organizations can go beyond the dashboard by allowing all skill levels to analyze data and build customized experiences that are infused into workflows and processes.

Press release: Funding announced to train 900 new children’s social workers

first_img Social workers are heroes, often unsung, of our society – working on the frontline to offer care and support to some of the most vulnerable children and families in the country. Children’s social care is only as good as the people who deliver it, which is why we want to recruit, retain and develop the best social workers, so they can continue to offer the much needed lifeline to those who need it most. That’s why the Government is supporting Frontline with £45 million to continue their work in attracting and training bright graduates and career changers, who aspire for a rewarding career as a social worker. Education Secretary Damian Hinds has today (8 January) announced plans to fund 900 places on the Frontline children’s social work training programme up to 2021.The social work charity, which has cross-party support, has secured £45 million in funding as it recruits growing numbers of trainees to the social work profession, helping to transform the lives of vulnerable children and families.The announcement of additional funding comes as new Frontline-commissioned research, undertaken by ComRes, reveals that 44% of adults aged 18 – 34 are considering a change of career this year. The research also shows that a quarter of millennials would prioritise purpose over pay (25%).Frontline, a top graduate recruiter, has already brought over 1,000 people onto its programme since 2013. Frontline is currently recruiting for its largest ever cohort of 452 trainees, with over 40 vacancies in the South West for the first time, and all trainees will benefit from generous bursaries of up to £20,000.Education Secretary Damian Hinds said: Josh MacAlister, Frontline’s Chief Executive: Every child deserves a safe and stable home. Today’s announcement means that Frontline can develop even more outstanding social workers to stand alongside those children and families who need them the most. This year there has never been a better time to get into social work, with applications still open to join the Frontline programme for 2019.center_img Sally Hodges, Director of Children’s Services, Solihull: We are proud to be working in partnership with Frontline to train the next generation of social workers. Social work is one of the country’s most important professions, and can make a life changing difference to those most in need. Frontline’s participants, and the passion and talent they bring, have been an invaluable addition to our team at Solihull. We welcome today’s news and look forward to continuing our work together to deliver the best services for vulnerable children and their families.last_img read more
