A place for us and our guests to get out of the working stress and everyday-life, to find a special privacy, to return to real life again, just to enjoy time, nature, reading, eating… a special location to offer a retreat off the everyday-life – that was our little dream to build. As we are both architects, the intention of our work was to show that the quality of a building is designed by his proportions, materials and structures, not only by size.Save this picture!© Florian HolzherrThe wooden house its only four meters wide, the area kitchen / dining, living and sleeping is open-plan and connected by stairs, each half a level above the other. We have chosen a solid wood construction for the outer walls and roof. Inside the wall we built a wall of adobes, covered by clay.Save this picture!© Florian HolzherrOne enters the house through the heavy wooden door, to get the guest a feeling of the structure of the walls. The kitchen and dining room can be extended into the garden in summer by opening the large folding sliding doors on each side over the two free-hanging terraces. Through this vast glass area one is sitting more or less in nature. If necessary protective curtains can afford privacy.Save this picture!Ground Floor PlanThe sitting room is heaven for listening to music, watching films, reading, and enjoying the fire and the mountains. By all weathers one can look directly on to the mountain “Spitzstein” through the large panorama window. The wood-burning stove radiates it’s warmth – a comfort crackling and the aroma of wood fills the whole house. One level up, the bed looks straight out onto the Auerbach and can enjoy the late afternoon sun. The bathroom is separated by a cupboard from the sleeping area.Save this picture!© Florian HolzherrThe small gallery above the living room it’s the freestanding bathtub with a view of the heavens. This area makes cosy reading corner that can be used for relaxation after a hot bath or a long walk on the fresh air. The garden can be shared and is an ideal spot to barbecue and relax. Through the garden gate is directly on the Auerbach, which in summer offers wonderful‚ Badegumpen to cool off in and in winter is ice-wonderland.Save this picture!First Floor PlanConcerning the construction of the house, we used just materials we are totally convinced. The ceilings and the construction of the roof are built by the same material as the walls: solid wood. All exterior walls are built by 16 cm thick solid wooden plates, inside we built a clay wall and inside we used also clay to plaster the walls with its wall heating system.Save this picture!© Florian HolzherrThe whole house is heated by this kind of invisible heating system; additionally in the bathroom we planned also underfloor heating. An automatically controlled ventilation system provides the house with fresh air at all times. The lighting system in the house is operated by normal switches. There is a modern BUS System which also enables practical operation with a remote or iPad. The uncomplex room structure integrates a high technology almost invisible, so that the house opens up to the guest very simple.Save this picture!© Florian HolzherrIn order to try to reduce the private electrical consumption, all electrical circuits in the house are monitored, so everyone has the opportunity to get a feeling for his own energy use. The solar panels on the roof are shape of tiles. They produce more energy than the house itself requires, so it can also provide electricity for the neighboring house. A socket to charge an electrical car has been installed, a battery to store the electricity has been provided, but not yet realised.Save this picture!© Florian HolzherrThis house is open to the public for part of the year.

Ruling accepts importance of protecting journalistic sources

The prosecutor also rejected for lack of evidence the possibility of an enquiry into supposed links between the newspaper and the intelligence services.————————————————————-20.08.2004 – Provincial government threatens privacy of journalistic sourcesReporters Without Borders today warned the government of Argentina’s Neuquén province that it was threatening democracy by pressing the daily paper Río Negro to reveal its sources for a report it published about alleged embezzlement involving a government minister. “Confidentiality of journalistic sources is the cornerstone of press freedom,” it said in a letter to provincial governor Jorge Sobisch. “Without it, nobody would dare to give sensitive information to journalists. Pressing the paper to reveal its sources is a serious threat to investigative journalism, which is vital for democracy.”We remind you that Principle 8 of the Inter-American Human Rights Commission’s Declaration on Freedom of Expression says explicitly that every journalist has the right not to reveal sources of information.”The provincial government filed a suit on 6 August asking the paper to disclose its sources for an article two days earlier that reported that public accountants were investigating suspected embezzlement by the Neuquén Provincial Bank while it was headed by the present local minister of social security and labour, Luis Manganaro. The paper said between 500,000 and 700,000 pesos (135,000-190,000 euros) were stolen from a federal funding authority, the AFIP-DGI.Manganaro called for revelation of the journalists’ sources and investigation of which legal officials may have leaked information to them. The paper’s management has called the minister’s request an “unacceptable attack on press freedom and encroachment on the independence of the judiciary.”The editor of the Neuquén daily La Nación, Hector Mauriño, noted that the case was not an isolated one and was part of long-standing government hostility towards Río Negro. All government bodies in the province cancelled their advertising in Río Negro in January 2003 after it criticised the governor for alleged corruption.

OH workers turning to drugs and alcohol to combat stress

first_imgRelated posts:No related photos. Comments are closed. OH workers turning to drugs and alcohol to combat stressOn 1 Feb 2004 in Personnel Today OH practitioners are increasingly stressed, with some turning to alcohol ordrugs to cope with rising pressures. The shock findings come from a poll of 129 people by recruitment firm OHRecruitment last summer. More than half of those questioned admitted to feeling stressed at work,with two-thirds claiming their work environment had become more stressful overthe past 12 months. A total of 88 per cent had taken five days or more off sick in the past 12months, with 23 per cent blaming their absence wholly or partly on stress. Worryingly, when it came to comparing those who felt they suffered fromwork-related stress with those who did not, those suffering were twice aslikely to use alcohol and prescription or non-prescription drugs. They were also nearly four times as likely to put their absence from workdown to the effects of stress and three times as likely to have experiencedincreasing levels of work-related stress over the past 12 months. A clear sign of the time pressures OH practitioners are working under,emerged from the fact that just 13 per cent said they took a full hour’s lunchbreak, and 47 per cent had a half-hour to an hour’s commute to and from work.Those suffering from work-related stress were twice as likely to have anaverage commute of an hour or more. When it came to tackling stress, most preferred sports and leisure, althoughalcohol, at 21 per cent, was high on the list. For a minority of others, smoking and drugs, whether illegal or prescribed,were their preferred method of winding down after a hard day. OH Recruitment director Sue Lamb said: “The results suggest thatwork-related stress is increasing for both the UK workforce and the OHprofessionals charged with recognising and treating the symptoms, prompting thequestion: who looks after the carers?” The agency plans to carry out a follow-up survey later this year todetermine whether OH professionals have access to the same stress managementresources as other workers, and whether they are being used. Key findings1. Are you stressed at work?Yes – 57 per cent No – 43 per cent2. Has your work environment become more stressful in the past12 months?Yes – 60 per centNo – 40 per cent3.

What methods do you use to combat stress?Sports and leisure – 73 per centAlcohol – 21 per centTobacco – 7 per cent Prescribed drugs – 2 per cent Illegal drugs – 1 per cent Other – 52 per cent6.

Contrasting strategies of resistance vs. tolerance to desiccationin two polar dipterans

first_imgLow water availability is one of the principal stressors for terrestrial invertebrates in the polar regions, determining the survival of individuals, the success of species and the composition of communities. The Arctic and Antarctic dipterans Heleomyza borealis and Eretmoptera murphyi spend the majority of their biennial life cycles as larvae, and so are exposed to the full range of environmental conditions, including low water availability, over the annual cycle. In the current study, the desiccation resistance and desiccation tolerance of larvae were investigated, as well as their capacity for cross-tolerance to temperature stress. Larvae of H. borealis showed high levels of desiccation resistance, only losing 6.9% of their body water after 12 days at 98.2% relative humidity (RH). In contrast, larvae of E. murphyi lost 46.7% of their body water after 12 days at the same RH. Survival of E. murphyi larvae remained high in spite of this loss (>80% survival). Following exposure to 98.2% RH, larvae of E. murphyi showed enhanced survival at −18°C for 2 h. The supercooling point of larvae of both species was also lowered following prior treatment at 98.2% RH. Cross-tolerance to high temperatures (37 or 38.5°C) was not noted following desiccation in E. murphyi, and survival even fell at 37°C following a 12-day pre-treatment. The current study demonstrates two different strategies of responding to low water availability in the polar regions and indicates the potential for cross-tolerance, a capacity which is likely to be beneficial in the ever-changing polar climate.last_img read more
