The minimumhouse at Mellensee, situated to the south of Berlin, is a prototype for a serial holiday and residentialhouse. Under the label minimumhouse it is offered including all furniture and fittings. The concept was developed by the ideal of a house with maximum outdoor impressions and also by making full use of the solar yields for the building.

The annual heating requirements answer to the low-energy standard. Soil sensor, ceiling-mounted radiation heating, controlled ventilation and a heat recovery support thermic automation. A bus system constantly supervises and regulates the house.

A solar system is placed on the extensively vegetated flat roof. Save this picture!Floor Plan & SectionsThe northern wall is a highly insulated, two-shell timber frame construction. The southern facade is a flush fixed glazing mullion-transom construction. Sliding windows permit to open the west and east facades. A core, that is placed in this volume, integrates building services, closet and flight of stairs and also divides the ground plan into zones. All materials and surfaces used for the minimumhouse have been chosen in accordance to ecological and sustainable criteria.Save this picture!© Christian GahlProject gallerySee allShow lessParc Paysager des bords de Seine Proposal / AWP & HHFArticles“São Paulo – South America Super Nexus” at Cities of Tomorrow TalksArticles Share CopyHouses•Klausdorf, Germany Save this picture!© Christian Gahl+ 17 Share Houses Minimum House / Scheidt Kasprusch Architekten Minimum House / Scheidt Kasprusch ArchitektenSave this projectSaveMinimum House / Scheidt Kasprusch Architekten CopyAbout this officeScheidt Kasprusch ArchitektenOfficeFollowProductsWoodGlass#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesWoodHousesKlausdorfGermanyPublished on September 20, 2011Cite: “Minimum House / Scheidt Kasprusch Architekten” 20 Sep 2011.

As an authorised officer our inspector will be proactive in helping those animals most in need, those that have been abandoned, neglected or cruelly treated,” Dr Kelly explained.He also paid tribute to Limerick SPCA for working tirelessly in Limerick to help animals over the years.“Merging with the ISPCA and providing funding for an ISPCA inspector is the right thing to do at this time and will be a great benefit to the animals of Limerick.”Chairperson of Limerick SPCA, Geraldine Nardone, believes that having a full time ISPCA inspector is a positive step for Limerick and will allow the legislation to be enforced more effectively.“Thanks to the bequest we received this has now become a reality. We are delighted to be able to collaborate with the ISPCA on this and to merge with them. We wish David and the ISPCA every success for the future,” Geraldine told the Limerick Post.Meanwhile, ISPCA inspector David Walsh says he is delighted to have taken up the new position.“I look forward to promoting animal welfare and dealing with incidents of animal cruelty whenever possible.”Members of the public in Limerick can report animal welfare concerns to the ISPCA via the National Animal Cruelty Helpline in confidence on 1890 515 515.

A starting chance for Western Cape youth

first_imgFor more than a decade the Western Cape NGO Starting Chance has been making early childhood development programmes more accessible across the province. Its latest event is hosting nearly 1,000 preschool children at its Fair Play Fun Day on 5 August.More than 40% of children in the Western Cape under the age of five have no access to early childhood development facilities. In an effort to make ECD more accessible, Cape Town NGO Starting Chance trains and supports educators throughout the province. (Image: Mathiba Molefe)Play Your Part ReporterProper early childhood development (ECD) can go a long way towards helping a child grow into a healthy adult, providing them with the strong foundation they need to tackle the many issues they will face as they grow up.In a bid to help the children of the Western Cape build this foundation, Cape Town NGO Starting Chance has, for more than a decade, been fuelling the growth of ECD programmes throughout the province.In this spirit, during Women’s Month, the organisation has joined hands with nine educare centres and schools in hosting nearly 1,000 preschool children at its Fair Play Fun Day on 5 August at Mfuleni High School in Blue Downs, Cape Town.“Partnering with the local high school, preschools and primary schools and engaging parents means we can support and impact the rate of change of the education process,” says Starting Chance founder Ian Corbett.Each of the schools and educare centres will make games using recycled material for the children to play with during the fun day.Starting Chance will also be responsible for the food stalls on the day. The proceeds from the stalls will go towards upgrading schools in the area and providing educators and caregivers with the training and teaching materials they need to mould young minds.“Our experience on this project has shown that by working together, we can make significant change possible,” Corbett said.The children will also be joined by members of the surrounding communities to celebrate Women’s Month with the mothers, female entrepreneurs and teachers who run the various educare centres. (Image: Mathiba Molefe)Not all heroes wear capesThe collective has extended an invitation to the public to join them as a volunteer at the fun day and help bring it to life and share in the enriching experience. You can also help out by sponsoring R30 games and food coupon booklet for the children who cannot afford them.To learn more, support or volunteer, visit www.startingchance.org.za or call Ali on 082 491 1171.The children will also be joined by members of the surrounding communities to celebrate Women’s Month with the mothers, female entrepreneurs and teachers who run the various educare centres.Corbett believes the event is an ideal way to empower educare entrepreneurs with a networking and fundraising opportunity, while helping them to develop their businesses and the standard of ECD in the area.Would you like to use this article in your publication or on your website?

The 5 Sales Tools Every Company Will Use in 2019

first_imgBrad AndersonEditor In Chief at ReadWrite How OKR’s Completely Transformed Our Culture Related Posts Over the past couple years, the machine learning niche has exploded into the mainstream. Startups have popped up left and right to show off their innovative new tools, and Google — the tech giant above all tech giants — now claims to be a machine learning company.This sudden spike in AI interest is not as surprising as it might seem. People have wanted smart robots since the earliest days of sci-fi. Thanks to strides in natural language processing and other tech advances, the long-awaited arrival of machine learning is finally here.For sales processes, machine learning is a dream come true. More than 40 percent of salespeople find prospecting leads to be the hardest part of the job, with 22 percent feeling that qualifying those leads is even harder. Now, AI can sift through prospects using advanced analytics to discover which ones are the most likely to convert, then spit out a list of the best leads in seconds. No more spending two-thirds of the day entering data and researching leads — with machines on the case, salespeople can spend their time talking to prospects and closing deals.Not all sales tools are created equal, though. The successful sales teams of the future will lean on these to win more deals: Personalized mobile appsPlenty of sales fall through due to issues beyond the salesperson’s control, and those issues are often a result of the company’s product or service. A service that is unclear in its execution — no matter how valuable that service may be — can cause potential buyers to back out quickly, leaving the salesperson in the lurch.However, if the service is presented in a sleek and well-executed format that is easily accessible during a sales call, salespeople will be free to work their magic without restraint. When building a personalized app for the donor registration organization DKMS, the software development team at Clevertech focused on simplifying and streamlining the original system to help retain users. Its sophisticated mobile solution increased user retention by 60 percent and significantly improved awareness and understanding of DKMS’s service with the simplicity of a cleaner presentation.Salespeople are only as strong as the product or service they’re looking to sell. By arming them with an easy-to-navigate and easy-to-transport display, companies can provide salespeople with everything they need to educate prospective clients on the value of what they provide. Smart searchAI-enabled searches cut through the mire of unqualified leads to pick out the individuals and companies best matched to the seller’s product or service. If there is one machine learning tool that every company needs, it’s this one.Node, an AI-powered discovery engine, is going all-in on sales enablement. The company recently announced $5 million in new funding and brought in two top AI researchers to develop its latest product.“AI has incredible potential in sales,” says Greg McBeth, head of revenue at Node. “New tools allow companies to discover valuable customer information that they would otherwise miss, then act on that information at the right time with the right message.” ChatbotsModern consumers prefer to do most product research on their own. They use smartphones to compare prices, check social media for reviews, and read articles about the pros and cons of each choice. By the time they reach out to a salesperson, they are almost ready to close. In B2B sales, the process is longer, but the premise is the same: Online research has replaced the old-school necessity of verbal description in sales.Chatbots guide website visitors to complete tasks that get them closer to closing. They can provide information about local stores, set up appointments to speak with salespeople, and answer questions about products and services. The best ones embody the personalities of the brands behind them, giving would-be customers a more personalized experience.Cloud solutionsIt’s 2018, and the office is now mobile. Salespeople on the go should not be isolated from their tools and resources. “Frustrated customers are beating up your salespeople because your sales teams are out there all on their own,” explains Phil Rainsberger, director of strategy and customer experience at Tier 1. “They don’t have answers to customers’ questions, they don’t have up-to-the-second information, they’re disconnected from your company’s systems, and as a result they’re unable to provide real-time information and make decisions that every type of business and customer is beginning to demand.”Modern cloud solutions allow sales teams to access information from anywhere, empowering them to make faster decisions and capitalize on opportunities in the field. Not only do cloud solutions speed up the sales process, but they also lower the budget hit from slower, more expensive information systems.Salespeople from cloud-powered companies can do in one meeting what those from other companies do in several, reducing the number of opportunities for deals to get away.Sales AccelerationCRM’s are the anchor to any sales environment. However, common complaints from sales reps is that their CRM is too clunky and slows them down. But the information contained within is a vital system of record. Companies that have a 360 degree view of their core customers have a competitive advantage.Reduce the weight of a CRM by adding additional products to your technology stack. This will reduce the daunting nature of a CRM, further driving adoption and making your CRM investment more valuable.Sales teams should consider investing in sales acceleration software that integrates with their CRM, improving sales productivity. As you explore sales acceleration solutions, make sure they’re designed for your specific (inside or outside) sales strategy.Sales teams won’t go away anytime soon, but their tool kits are expanding rapidly. The companies with the best sales results in the future will be the ones that leverage the full power of their technological advantages. These four technologies provide a starting point, but truly tech-centered sellers should keep up with the latest advancements to stay ahead of their industries.

Boushies family meets federal ministers after acquittal in murder trial

first_imgThe Canadian Press OTTAWA – Colten Boushie’s family is in Ottawa meeting federal ministers after a Saskatchewan farmer accused of fatally shooting him was acquitted late last week.Boushie’s cousin, Jade Tootoosis, said Monday the family has no specific goal beyond building relationships with people who have the power to change the way First Nations people are treated in the criminal justice system.“We’re not in a rush because we want things done right,” Tootoosis said shortly after meeting with Indigenous Affairs Minister Carolyn Bennett.“We have little to no faith in the justice system. We’re here to talk about that.”On Friday, a jury found Gerald Stanley, 56, not guilty of second-degree murder in the 2016 killing of Boushie, a 22-year-old member of the Red Pheasant First Nation.Boushie’s relatives are expected to sit down with Public Safety Minister Ralph Goodale and Justice Minister Jody Wilson-Raybould on Tuesday.Boushie’s mother, Debbie Baptiste, said justice for Colten would mean a change to the justice system.Chris Murphy, a family friend and lawyer, said the family discussed the issue of jury selection with Bennett.The apparent all-white makeup of the jury has been widely criticized, along with so-called peremptory challenges, which allow lawyers to reject jury candidates without needing to provide a justification.Tootoosis said she would like to see the government do away with peremptory challenges.Wilson-Raybould, who is the country’s first Indigenous justice minister, tweeted Saturday in the wake of the Stanley verdict that Canada “can and must do better.”Aboriginal Sen. Murray Sinclair posted a poem online saying he grieves for First Nations youth “who now see no hope,” and says Indigenous people have been grieving for so long it has become part of their DNA.“I grieve for a family that has not yet seen justice from the moment a handgunned farmer (why does a farmer need such a gun?) pulled the trigger and killed their son,” Sinclair wrote.Kevin Seesequasis, a Cree Nation councillor in Saskatchewan, said both Indigenous and non-Indigenous residents are reeling from what he describes as a horrible failure of the criminal justice system.“Colten Boushie was not just the victim of a senseless murder,” Seesequasis said.“If we cannot find some way toward real change for Indigenous people in the criminal justice system, Colten Boushie will also be the victim of a criminal justice system that was stacked against him from the start and a government indifferent to that reality.”Indigenous faculty members and allies sent an open letter to heads of universities across Canada describing the Stanley verdict as “yet another iteration of the systemic violence that Indigenous peoples in this country have faced for over 150 years.”The letter, signed by more than 20 faculty members from schools as far afield as Australia and New Zealand, calls for universities to support anti-oppressive education and enhance institutional accountability towards First Nations communities.last_img read more
