We can now work anywhere as long as we have a decent internet connection and something to type on. Penda’s latest design, Yin & Yang house, calls upon millennials to take advantage of this ability and move back to the countryside for a better quality of life.+ 29Yin & Yang house in Germany’s countryside will provide a small family the resources to grow all of their own food for a self-sufficient lifestyle whilst establishing a harmonious dialogue between the living and working spaces in the home. Addressing our detachment with the origins of our food and the unsustainable industrial agriculture, the house will become a living organism that will transform as the seasons’ pass, sculpted by nature. Whenever architects design a building, they take an area away that used to belong to nature. We try to give this space back to plants on the roof. At the same time we provide a gardening-system for the owners with greenhouses in winter and rows of planters for the rest of the year – Christ Precht, founding partner of Penda. Continuing the relation with nature, the roof of the house will be a landscape in itself; two peaks in opposite corners will form mountains that a valley will run through. The ascending roof will also facilitate rainwater harvesting that channels the water to the ground to be reused on dry days for the plants. Depending on the time of year Yin & Yang house will evolve and grow. In the design, Penda has integrated flexible greenhouses for the winter months and gardening planters for herbs, vegetables and fruit on the roof.Save this picture!Courtesy of Penda AustriaRecommended ProductsEnclosures / Double Skin FacadesAlucoilStructural Honeycomb Panels – LarcoreWindowsC.R.

In our garden, we try to grow as much of our daily nutrition as somehow possible,” says Fei Tang. “You know what you eat and taste the work and love that comes from your own garden. Real food becomes part of your identity. The same way that architecture does. To combine both in one harmonious design, gives a poetic image for a small plot on the countryside.”When architecture supports the food we eat, it becomes so much more than just a “building” – a rare situation when it comes to the ever-bustling cities. Penda is calling other architects to adopt this strategy to encourage the younger generation of creatives to move to the countryside. The Yin & Yang house was exhibited at the Documenta in Kassel, Germany, as part of an effort from architects to revive the region of Edersee.Save this picture!Courtesy of Penda AustriaSave this picture!Courtesy of Penda AustriaLocationEdersee, GermanyStudioPenda AustriaProject TeamChris Precht, Fei Tang Precht, Dayong Sun, Zizhi YuArea75.0 m2Project Year2017PhotographsCourtesy of Penda Austria, Courtesy of Fernando NeyraNews via: Penda.Project gallerySee allShow lessRI House / arquitectura xSelected ProjectsIs the Pritzker Prize Still Relevant Today?Architecture News Share CopyAbout this officeProductWood#TagsProjectsUnbuilt ProjectResidential ArchitectureHousesLandscapeSustainability & Green DesignPendaNatureNewsResidentialArchitecture NewsCountrysideSustainableEdertalEderseeLive WorkLifestyleGermanyPublished on March 06, 2018Cite: Ella Thorns. “Architecture That Can Feed You: Penda’s Yin & Yang House Addresses Our Detachment With Food” 06 Mar 2018.

SHARE SHARE By Hoosier Ag Today – Nov 7, 2018 Facebook Twitter The National Pork Board (NPB), United Soybean Board (USB) and National Corn Growers Association (NCGA) announce the signing of a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) on a sustainability research platform that will benefit all three organizations and their producers. This research program will include the sharing of completed research, coordination on current and planned research and define ways to share and communicate results with each organization’s members.Leadership from the three commodity groups agree that it is prudent to consider specific ways in which they might work together more effectively to ensure alignment and collaboration in sustainability research and how the results can and will be communicated and shared.“Sustainability is defined by the We CareSM ethical principles pork producers established over 10 years ago,” said National Pork Board President Steve Rommereim, a pig farmer from Alcester, South Dakota. “Joining in the efforts of two other organizations, as a collective group, we can more effectively spend producer dollars to achieve the goals we can all believe in and support. Without one, we wouldn’t have the other.”An overarching goal of proactive, continuous improvement is a shared focus among pork, soybean and corn producers.“Most farmers are invested in multiple commodities and invested in more than one of our organizations, so it’s important that we are collaborating wherever we can,” said Lewis Bainbridge, USB chair and soybean and livestock farmer from South Dakota. “We need to be supportive of one another, especially now when there’s more interest in what we’re doing to produce our commodities. We need to be looking at the big picture of how our commodities work together and take that a step further.”Through combined communications efforts and outreach, the organizations can increase the education, capacity and motivation of pig and grain farmers to adopt conservation measures that deliver benefits to the environment and to farm resilience and profitability.“NCGA’s targeted focus – whether it’s policy, market development or research – is to grind more corn and do it profitably. However, in areas like sustainability and research where we share goals and values in our industry, it is just plain smart to work in collaboration,” said Lynn Chrisp, NCGA president of Hastings, Nebraska. “This memorandum will encourage increased communications, further sharing of staff and funding resources, pool expertise, and ultimately makes us all more effective.”A task force of farmer representatives from NPB, USB and NCGA will be formed and, with support from each organization, will be responsible for managing and evaluating the activities outlined in the MOU. Additionally, the task force will track progress and evaluate the value and impact of the MOU upon completion of all activities.Source: NCGA Home Indiana Agriculture News Commodity Leaders Join Forces on Sustainability Research Previous articleCrop Adviser Conference to Offer Ag Pros Practical Management InfoNext articleWhat a Republican Senate and Democratic House Means for Indiana Agriculture Hoosier Ag Today Facebook Twitter Commodity Leaders Join Forces on Sustainability Research

Mr Sarkozy, what have you asked of Zhou Yongkang?”Talking about the fight against organised crime and terrorism is one thing, but not to raise human rights and public freedoms questions would be unacceptable. The minister you are welcoming, Mr Sarkozy, is directly responsible for the crackdown on dissident voices in China.”We realise that for you he is an important representative of the Chinese government, but for tens of thousands of Chinese he is the person directly responsible for torture, unfair imprisonment of dissidents and serious human rights violations.”Hong Kong journalist Ching Cheong was accused of spying after being arrested in Guangzhou in April 2005. The Chinese foreign ministry said on 31 May 2005 that the correspondent for the Singapore daily Straits Times had confessed to spying for foreign agencies.The management of Straits Times has said it was shocked by these accusations and the journalist’s wife, Mary Lau, has explained that he fell into a trap set by a third party when he tried to obtain recordings of secret interviews with reformist ex-prime minister, Zhao Ziyang.The trial of Zhao Yan, Chinese researcher on the New York Times, for “divulging state secrets” and “fraud” was held behind closed doors on 16 June 2006, in the No 2 People’s Court in Beijing. No witnesses were allowed to appear. This offence is punishable with the death penalty.Zhao’s sister, Zhao Kun, had her request to attend the trial turned down by the court. Zhao Yan, laureate of the 2005 Reporters Without Borders – Fondation de France press freedom award, has been in prison since 17 September 2004. He was accused of revealing news of the retirement from politics of Jiang Zemin to the New York Times before it was officially announced.Arrested on 24 November 2004, Shi Tao was sentenced on 20 April 2005 to 10 years in prison for “illegally divulging state secrets abroad” because he took the text of an official memo that had been sent to his newspaper, Dangdai Shang Bao (Contemporary Business News), and posted it on foreign websites. The memo warned journalists of the dangers of social destabilisation on the 15th anniversary of the Tiananmen Square massacre. Shi is currently held in Prison No. 1 in the south-central province of Hunan, which is located on a small island near the city of Yuanjiang. He shares a cell with more than 10 other inmates and makes jewellery in a workshop of poor sanitary standards.
