Private hiring rose 113,000, while government employment fell 10,000.However, overall employment for October and November was revised to show 70,000 more job gains than previously reported. The unemployment rate fell to 9.4 per cent, the lowest since May 2009, from 9.8 per cent in November.Economists raised their employment forecasts after payrolls processing company ADP Employer Services said on Wednesday private employers added 297,000 in December – the largest gain on ADP records dating to 2000.“The labour market improvement is still way slower than what everybody would hope for,” said Harm Bandholz, chief U.S. economist at UniCredit Research in New York.Federal Reserve officials will take into account the jobs report when they meet on January 25-26. Signs of strength in the economic recovery had led to calls for the U.S. central bank to scale back its widely criticized $600bn (£387bn) government bond-purchasing program aimed at keeping interest rates low to boost demand. last_img read more

Afumati House / Manadelucru

Among the highest concerns formulated at the beginning of the project for the house of Afumati, was that referring to its dimensions. It was at the end of the glorious period when square meters were flowing endlessly and the owners of the house were still under their spell, too. As almost everybody in those times, from a block flat you had to move into a house as large as possible, on a plot of land as large as possible. This particular plot of land is part of a newly developed urban area of the municipality of Afumati. Across the road there is still a houseless field. Save this picture!© Cosmin DragomirThe over-gauge resulting from the project theme also brought about the concern for the design of a monoblock object with a brutal appearance. Beyond the scale, we also wanted to get out of the recurrent logics of the new outskirts: that of a massive box merely placed inside a yard. This is why we thought from the very beginning about a carved out body, with gills that would let the house breath and with exterior spaces that could advance towards the interior. The owners wanted a tennis court by the house, on the Eastern side. The building itself reaches as far as the alignment limit on the Northern and Western sides in order to clear out the necessary space in the yard. Save this picture!© Cosmin DragomirThe gills and the carvings we have been referring to above, are developed only on this facade, the others (as-a-matter-offact, the most exposed to the wind) being much more opaque. The carvings in the volume create a diversity of intermediate places – open and covered terraces, loggias and patios – and, consequently, a more complex and less abrupt relation to the exterior. Another effect on the spatial structure of the house is the increase of the natural light effect: for example, the terrace carved out in the middle of the volume brings light to the attic level by means of a window located under the terrace bench and all the way to the entrance hallway, on the ground floor. Save this picture!© Cosmin DragomirThe attic – provided with this own terrace, with high parapet which also allows a certain degree of intimacy – is practically working as a separate house. At present, it houses a film projection room, a library with an open reading place and a rather generous space for parties. However, all these can be subtly and easily transformed into an apartment for the owners’ daughter, when given the case. The terrace on the first floor is protecting that of the living room. It was thought as an airplane wing, to be supported by four metallic circular section pillars. Save this picture!© Cosmin DragomirUnfortunately, these were later covered and given a square shape, with a much stronger visual appearance. Also in addition to the initial project (and coming out of the beneficiaries’ fear of earthquakes) there appeared a pillar under the console that covers the terrace of the first floor. The evolution of the project during the building works led to another change. Initially, it had been established the wood panelling of the carvings, but, when we saw how those hollows were functioning in sunlight, we decided to keep to a unitarily treated object, whose main finishing was light.

This building is a continuation of our exploration in a genre of building that is specifically design for occupation in the summer months. In the design process we attempt to challenge the boundaries between the built form and nature to heighten the experience of immersion in nature. We challenge also the accepted levels of comfort and utility for the same reason. We attempt also to reference the nostalgia surrounding the “Kiwi bach” by manipulating scale, form, relationships, materiality and limitation of amenity.Save this picture!©  Patrick ReynoldsSave this picture!Floor PlanSave this picture!©  Patrick ReynoldsResponse:
Break the building into 2 primary components in order to reduce the scale and to allow the bach to follow the contour of the land.
Create a single cut in the knoll and retain it with a gabion wall, this sets up a spine around which the components can be ordered.
Separate the functions by a full level to allow a panoramic view from the living level and to step the house down towards the beach.
The living pavilion is articulated as a series of 4 spaces in a pinwheel arrangement; a kitchen, a lounge and 2 covered decks. The kitchen aspects towards both the north and south deck depending on the prevailing wind conditions by manipulating a series of doors and shutters.
A stair drops to the lower level and penetrates the gabion wall, a covered outside walkway running along the gabion wall connects to the bedroom spaces.
The stair continues on axis with a powerful rock formation at the base of the slope to make the connection to the beach.Save this picture!©  Patrick ReynoldsA black stained rainscreen cladding introduces a crenulated layering which peels open in part to allow views and privacy or wind screening.

The latter type is made in cases were a Garda has been involved in an incident causing serious harm or death.He said that as far as he was concerned serious harm had been caused to Ms Simms “from an emotional and psychological point of view” and the decision was made to make a section 102 referral to GSOC.Superintendent McGovern testified that he was later contacted by Darren Wright, a Senior Investigating Officer with GSOC, who told him the complaint might not be a Section 102 referral.Ms Simms later informed GSOC in writing that she did not wish to make a complaint, and later withdrew her statement to Gardai.The Disclosures Tribunal is examining contacts between senior gardai and Tusla about Garda Harrison.

2016 US wheat harvest expected to shrink

first_imgThe US wheat crop could be the lowest since 2006, according to a report by the Agriculture & Horticulture Development Board (AHDB).Assuming normal conditions, the drop would chiefly be due to the lowest area being planted by farmers for six years, with the area planted with hard red winter wheat down 9% and soft red winter wheat down 5%.However, US wheat stocks are expected to rise 25% over the 2015/16 period, up to over 25Mt, which should offset the predicted drop in this year’s harvest and ensure availability will be similar to its current level.Helen Plant, senior analyst at AHDB Market Intelligence, said: “A US wheat crop of around 50Mt would still mean availability similar to this season ¬ in 2006 the US harvested 49.2Mt. Put another way, there would need to be a larger fall in spring wheat plantings and/or below-average growing and harvest conditions for US wheat availability to fall.“However, it may well be that certain classes of US wheat see a fall in availability. Stocks of hard red winter (HRW), the largest class by output, are expected to grow by 45% over this season to the highest level since 1999/00. Hard red spring (HRS) wheat stocks are also forecast to increase by 27%. In contrast, soft red winter (SRW) wheat stocks are expected to grow by a more modest 7%.”last_img read more
