Hamas has killed hundreds of children by forcing them to dig their infamous tunnels. Hamas executes suspected collaborators, summarily without execution. Gazan schools teach school kids to killJews and other infidels for simply being Jewish. Hamas purposely targets schools and civilians with their missiles, while Israelis perform gymnastics to minimize civilian deaths. Hamas uses mosques as military launch pads. Hamas’s charter demands the total eradication of the Jewish state. Israeli hospitals treat all-comers , regardless of background, (even Muslim terrorists) whereas no Jews are allowed in the Gazan Hospital.Hamas and the Palestinian Authority celebrate homicide/suicide bombers whereas Israeliscients are at the forefront of medical advancement.While Hamas and its allies have coercively crushed the Gazan Christian community, Israel is the ONLY country in the ME where Christianity is growing. (For that matter, the Palestinian Authority in the West Bank has made life for Christians increasingly difficult and the numbers of Christians there is decreasing .)Israelis want peace, whereas Hamas, Hezbollah, ISIS, Al Qaeda, the Muslim Brotherhood want the destruction of Jews and Christians. There is no moral equivalence here.Israel has every right to protect itself , supporting Hamas is absolutely wrong as it purposely engenders evil .It’s tragic that Gazan civilians are trapped by the Muslim terrorist mindset.

Cultural contextNess Point is a new house set in the dramatic landscape of the White Cliffs of Dover. The client grew up in the locality and commissioned Tonkin Liu to design a modern building that responded to the cultural heritage of this landmark setting and to his own family heritage, suggesting that the building could in some ways be Celtic.Save this picture!© Greg StorrarSave this picture!SectionArchitecture as landscapeHunkered into the land with undulating thick walls along its length, Ness Point is constructed as a journey with views that pull the surrounding landscape into the house. Each room is orientated towards a different aspect of the landscape, across the passing ships of the English Channel, towards the sun rising out of the sea at the winter solstice, and over to the coastal cliffs called Ness Point, after which the house is named.Save this picture!© Nick GuttridgeExposed to the elementsIn response to the exposed nature of cliff top site perched 65 meter above the sea, the house is designed as a highly sealed and insulated enclosure. The castle-like Ness Point House utilises heat recovery and solar thermal renewable systems to maximise energy efficiency in the winter, whilst the long gallery skylight and eco-vents enable passive cooling for equally exposed hot summer sun.Save this picture!© Nick GuttridgeCavernous volumeAlthough the form is irregular the constructional techniques used to construct the house are traditional. The combined effect of undulating plan and inclined sections creates a cavernous internal space that has been articulated to allow flexibility of use. The interior catches the dynamism of the day’s changing light so that the building becomes a part of the larger canvas of ever-changing coastal weather.Save this picture!Ground Floor PlanSave this picture!© Alex PeacockLandscape of time Ness Point has been designed as if it had grown out of the land in which it is embedded. The bio-diverse green roof slopes downward into the land at the rear, retaining rainwater and harbouring local wildlife, merging the house, over time, into the landscape of the coastal cliff top. Tonkin Liu have used their unique storytelling methodology to design a house that fulfils the poetry of place.Save this picture!© Nick GuttridgeProject gallerySee allShow lessHaru Cafe / B.U.S ArchitectureSelected ProjectsWorld’s Largest Starbucks to Open on Chicago’s Magnificent MileArchitecture News Share Mendick Waring Year:  Eckersley O’Callaghan ArchDaily CopyHouses•Dover, United Kingdom Ness Point House / Tonkin Liu ArchitectsSave this projectSaveNess Point House / Tonkin Liu Architects Lighting Design: Photographs:  Robby Whitfield, Nick Guttridge , Greg Storrar, Alex Peacock Manufacturers Brands with products used in this architecture project Save this picture!© Robby Whitfield+ 30 Share ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/870248/ness-point-house-tonkin-liu-architects Clipboard “COPY” Manufacturers: Velfac, Alan Hayward Joinery, Blackdown, Prima Systems Tonkin Liu Houses United Kingdom Landscape Architect: Architects: Tonkin Liu Architects Area Area of this architecture project 2016 Photographs Contractor: “COPY”last_img read more

Indiana Growers Find Effective Tool in Battle Against Weed Resistance

first_imgClouser says that more growers are learning to make the changes necessary and that the Liberty trait has not proven to have any yield drag when paired with the Beck’s genetics, “The Liberty system has worked well for growers using a wide variety of Beck’s varieties on a number of different fields and soil types.”  Doug ClouserWith each passing season, more and more Indiana growers are dealing with weeds that are resistant to Glyphosate. Many Hoosier growers are finding  success with the Liberty system. Beck’s Hybrids reports that over 40% of their soybean sales have been Liberty Link soybeans, an indication that Hoosier farmers are getting serious about dealing with weed resistance. Doug Clouser with Beck’s says, across Indiana, IL, and Ohio, growers are finding weed resistance to be a serious issue, “Several weed species are driving the move to look for a solution to weed resistance. These include Marestail, Giant Ragweed, and Palmer Amaranth.” The latter has been trucked in from the south were it has become a serious problem for farmers. Clouser added that Liberty is being embraced because it is one of the few new technologies that is available now, “Some of the new products we had hoped would help with resistance have been delayed in getting government approval, and farmers want tools they can use today. So many are turning to the Liberty system to deal with the problem now.”   But he warns making the switch to Liberty has a learning curve, “Farmers have to learn to do some things differently from when they used the Roundup system. They have to start their weed control program earlier and monitor their fields closely.” He said it takes some practice to manage a residual herbicide program. Going forward, he added, this is the way a weed control program will need to be operated regardless of what product or system one uses.
