In this case, the original house was a Colonial box with vinyl siding; it was poorly sited, and a garage cut it off from a spacious yard. Yet it had charm: cozy rooms, a downstairs bedroom suite, and ample usable space. The project called for—in essence—adding a house to the existing house, and the complexity and challenge proved too hard to resist.Save this picture!Floor PlanOur design created a slot for the addition by demolishing the garage and using surplus driveway space. This move anchored the new house in the landscape while ensuring that it wouldn’t eat up valuable green space, despite its large scale. The most challenging aspect was one of fit: by style and scale. Stylistically, we were marrying a modern glass and copper house to a Colonial. Moreover, integration was daunting: the high-ceilings and open volumes of the planned addition did not align with the Colonial’s tighter and more compressed spaces.Save this picture!Courtesy of Charles Rose ArchitectsTo confront the central challenge—of stitching together old and new—we used strategies that both hid and heightened transitions. Outside, we put a new wrapper on the Colonial: a cedar box. We kept practically everything as it was: window frames became sculptural indentations; old panes were replaced with single sheets of glass. Inside, we put a three-story atrium, topped by six large skylights – where old and new meet. We made this the formal entryway: The front door leads visitors into a small vestibule that opens into the atrium. A steel-and-glass stair climbs from the stone atrium floor to upper level of the addition. A second sculptural stair—a steel-and-glass bridge—crosses the atrium and links the second floors in the addition and the Colonial, heightening the contrast. A curtain wall of glass runs the length of the kitchen and living spaces, bringing the outdoors inside. The plan is open; the ground-floor stair, granite dining room server and bluestone fireplace are designed to delineate room areas.Save this picture!Courtesy of Charles Rose ArchitectsProject gallerySee allShow lessThe Principals Install Sound Reactive, Silver-Coated “Quilt” at NeuehouseArchitecture NewsArchitect Develops the World’s First HoverboardArchitecture News Share ArchDailylast_img read more

Equity Crowdfunding from Unistellar Gives Space Lovers Rare Access to a Profitable Space Brand

Comparing individual and spatial influences on foraging behaviour in Antarctic fur seals Arctocephalus gazella

first_imgWe investigated intra-specific and geographic variation in the behaviour of female Antarctic fur seals Arctocephalus gazella by serially sampling 11 individuals throughout their breeding season using satellite tracking, time-depth recorders and radio transmitters. There was significant variation between individuals in trip durations and the maximum distance reached from the breeding beach, but not in the direction of travel. We recognised 4 categories of trip duration, depending on the location of foraging: long deep-location, long intermediate-location, short intermediate-location and short shallow-location, based on the maximum distance reached from the breeding beach and the mean depth of water where diving occurred. Trip category accounted for a greater amount of the variation between trips than the identity of the seal. Seals on long deep-location trips spent proportionally less time diving, had a lower dive rate, and dived to shallower depths for shorter durations with less bottom time than seals on short shallow-location trips. There was no significant difference in the total number of dives within trips between trip categories or between individual seals. There was also no significant difference in either the mean size of krill taken by individual seals or the incidence of fishes in their diet. These data suggest there is a strong individual component to where a seal forages especially in terms of the distance it travels from the breeding beach. However, we suggest that it is where an individual forages, not who that individual is, that determines how it will behave in terms of its diving. While individual seals may exploit areas of previous feeding success, their diving behaviour within these areas is likely to be determined by the spatial and temporal distribution of the prey within them.last_img read more

Indiana utility says coal phaseout, new renewables will save customers $4 billion

first_img FacebookTwitterLinkedInEmailPrint分享Northwest Indiana Times:Indiana utility NIPSCO decided to transition away from the coal it’s burned for 90 years because of financial considerations, not environmental concerns, company President Violet Sistovaris told the Lakeshore Chamber of Commerce Wednesday.The Merrillville-based utility estimates it will save up to $4 billion by retiring its aging coal-fired plants, including the Michigan City Generating Station, passing the cost savings onto customers. NIPSCO believes that in a decade it will instead generate 65% of its electricity from renewable energy sources, 25% from natural gas, and 10% from other sources, such as buying power at market rates from the grid when it’s most cost-effective to do so.“It’s a customer-focused plan to meet the future energy needs of customers,” Sistovaris told a business crowd at a Lakeshore Chamber luncheon at Dynasty Banquets in Hammond. “It’s a decades-long transition to a more balanced portfolio. We’re going from coal-fired generation to lower-cost cleaner energy sources that will result in $4 billion in cost savings. It’s a more balanced, more diverse and more affordable way to reliably provide electricity. It’s not politically driven or environmentally driven. It’s lower cost.”Every few years, NIPSCO, the second-largest electric utility in Indiana, reviews how it will provide power in the future to its 460,000 electric customers, including five large industrial users that make up 40% of the total demand. The company looked 20 years out in a forecast and saw an opportunity to invest in cleaner and more balanced electricity generation, Sistovaris said.“Retiring all of our coal plants as quickly as possible was the least-cost option,” she said. “Running the coal plants to the end of life was the most expensive. They have aged and gotten more expensive to maintain and operate as anyone who runs an industrial facility can appreciate.”NIPSCO is partnering with developers to build four new wind farms across Indiana, in rural areas downstate. The company also expects to get power from solar panels, natural gas and the grid system, and will continue to evaluate the exact mix based on prices and market conditions, Sistovaris said.More: NIPSCO estimates shift from coal will save $4 billion Indiana utility says coal phaseout, new renewables will save customers $4 billionlast_img read more

Bundy (R)$3400$2700$12See above Today’s MLB DFS Picks: DraftKings, FanDuel advice for Thursday, June 20SP: Nick Pivetta, Phillies @ Nationals. The Phillies young righty has been good since being recalled, punching out six or more in four straight games. The Nats also are far better against lefthanded pitching, ranking 18th in wOBA and 22nd in wRC+ against righties. Pivetta has been slightly unlucky this year, as he’s notched a 5.00 ERA and only a .295 xFIP. He has a fair price across the industry.C: Jonathan Lucroy, Angels @ Blue Jays. Lucroy is 8-for-20 lifetime with a .450 wOBA against Clayton Richard. Richard has been awful since coming off the IL, notching a 7.53 ERA. Righties are batting .322 against Richard this year, as well.MORE THURSDAY MLB: SP rankings1B: Eric Thames, Brewers vs. Reds. I’m really digging this game, especially from the Brewers side. Tanner Roark has allowed a .305/.403/.484, a .381 wOBA and a 6.38 xFIP. Thames has hit nine of his 10 home runs against RHPs, and Miller Park ranks four in HRs on the year. He’s very expensive on DK — for no reason — but he works in a game stack and as a one-off on FD.2B: Jeff McNeil, Mets @ Cubs. The Mets 2B is rollin’ with back-to-back multi-hit games and is now batting .333 over his past 10 games. He has six extra-base hits and two stolen bases over that span, as well, which is obviously ideal. Lefties have a .321 average and .850 OPS vs. Chatwood on the year.SS: J.P. Crawford, Mariners vs. Orioles. Crawford has had a 62 at-bat sample this year, but his numbers against vs. RHP are pretty solid (.310 average). He’s also notably cheap across the industry. I know most people are going to use Chris Taylor on FD, but Crawford is the pivot off of him. CW. Astudillo (R)[email protected] 8:15G. Sparkman (R)$3400$2300$8UPGRADE CJ.

Turner (R)[email protected] 7:05N. Pivetta (R)$5500$4300$20UPGRADE 3B: Vladimir Guerrero Jr., Blue Jays vs. Angels. For whatever reason his price on DK continues to drop, and it’s all the way down to $3.5K, which is insane. This game has a 10.5-run implied total, and the Jays are up nearly five runs themselves. I could get behind Vlad in cash based on price and how many runs could be scored here.OF: Lourdes Gurriel Jr., Blue Jays vs. Angels. He’s only $3.1K on FD, which is super appealing considering how well he’s been playing. He’s homered four times over his last 10 games. Jose Suarez has been extremely lucky this year. Despite having a 4.50 ERA, his xFIP sits at 5.57 and SIERA is over 5.00, as well.For more player recommendations and analysis, become a Fantasy Alarm subscriber today!                                                                                                                                                                                                                                   Pos PlayerMatchupOpp. SPDKFDY!
