Education Art Center College of Design Celebrated a New Home for Visual Arts Transformation of Former U.S. Postal Service FacilitySignificantly Expands Campus, Provides New Access for Public and Art Community From STAFF REPORTS Published on Friday, June 20, 2014 | 11:04 am HerbeautyThe Most Heartwarming Moments Between Father And DaughterHerbeautyHerbeautyHerbeautyThis Trend Looks Kind Of Cool!HerbeautyHerbeautyHerbeauty5 Things To Avoid If You Want To Have Whiter TeethHerbeautyHerbeautyHerbeautyYou Can’t Go Past Our Healthy Quick RecipesHerbeautyHerbeautyHerbeautyThese Are 15 Great Style Tips From Asian WomenHerbeautyHerbeautyHerbeauty9 Of The Best Family Friendly Dog BreedsHerbeautyHerbeauty Â©Lawrence Anderson/EstoIn 2014, 870 South Raymond Avenue became the new home for Art Centerâ€™s Fine Art and Illustration departmentsâ€”and a thriving collaborative nucleus for the visual arts. This former U.S. Postal Service property has alleviated overcrowding on the Collegeâ€™s Hillside campus, expanded Art Centerâ€™s educational reach and resources, and helped transform South Campus from a â€œsatelliteâ€ location to a full-fledged campus.Art Center officially celebrated the successful opening of a new home for visual arts on Thursday, June 19. College leadership offered a few remarks with special recognition from several government officials. Following the ceremony, renovation architect Darin Johnstone led tours of the building, featuring a special exhibition/installation by his firm Darin Johnstone Architecture (djA) and showcased work by Art Center students and faculty.â€œDeveloping new spaces for learningâ€”both in the physical and virtual senseâ€”is a key focus of Art Centerâ€™s strategic plan; but only in as much as it enhances the quality of the education we can offer,â€ said Art Center President Lorne M. Buchman. â€œIn creating this new homebase for our Illustration and Fine Art students we have indeed added to the vibrancy of our campus community, which will no doubt expand the learning opportunities available to our studentsâ€”and we couldnâ€™t be happier.â€â€œOver time, the needs of our students and our curriculum have changed dramatically. Dedicated spaces for making and viewing artworks is essential,â€ said Fred Fehlau, provost. â€œThis new space enables us to expand and develop our programs while enhancing our capacity for teaching, learning, creating and collaborating. In doing so, we ensure that Art Center is able to fulfill its mission as a college and its promise to students now and into the future.â€The facility also provides opportunities for Art Center to strengthen engagement with diverse communities because of the proximity of the campus to public transportation and the continued presence of Art Centerâ€™s Public Programs, offering ongoing education for all ages.A key feature of the 35,000 square foot buildingâ€”on track to meet LEED Silver Certification standards, maximizing energy and water efficiency, and indoor environmental qualityâ€”is the abundance of natural light. What was once a dark, dated sorting and distribution center is now a bright, open space for learning and creativity. The building also boasts several formal and informal gallery spaces, private studios for students, seminar rooms and computer labs and, in the near future, an outdoor sculpture yard and printmaking studio. Another highlight of the building is efficiently controlled fluorescent lighting contributed by alumnus Scott Yu (BS 82) through his company, Vode, which designs adaptive architectural lighting systems.â€œThe amount of space for galleries, classrooms and offices needed to educate Art Centerâ€™s young visual artists filled the entire buildingâ€™s existing volume. At the same time most of the spaces still required an abundance of natural light,â€ Johnstone explained. â€œWe identified a few key areas of natural light within the existing building that we termed â€˜light courtsâ€™ and attempted to use the building program to open them up. Formal galleries and circulation areasâ€”themselves conceived of as informal gallery spacesâ€”were used to connect all of these â€˜light courts,â€™ effectively carving the mass of classrooms, studios and offices with light.â€â€œAs both an architect and educator, Darin was especially aware and conversant of the challenges we faced in renovating the 870 building within an incredibly tight schedule,â€ said George Falardeau, senior vice president of Real Estate and Operations. â€œDarin and his entire team worked closely with our director of Real Estate and Campus Planning, Rollin Homer, as well as other Art Center administrators and they all exceeded expectations on all fronts. Everyone in the community is in awe of the buildingâ€™s transformation.â€â€œThe renovated building and our efforts to enliven that industrial portion of Pasadena has enjoyed great support from City officials and the community at large,â€ Falardeau added.In addition to seeing the work of current Art Center students and faculty, attendees had an opportunity to further explore the work of Darin Johnstone Architecture through a series of drawings (Drawn Out: Didactic to Haptic) and an installation (Light Mass)â€”both created by djAâ€”that was on view. Of the museum-quality display, Johnstone said, â€œFor this exhibit a two part drawing series and an installation was conceived to reflect upon the original design approach while deepening and extending the architectâ€™s understanding of the building. The drawings move from programmatic to projective and the installation is intended to work as a drawing and an object simultaneously. The entire piece is a projection of multiple outcomes and a rumination on presence.â€Fueled by a commitment to support the next generation of artists and designers, acquisition of the property was made possible in large part by three seven-figure alumni giftsâ€”from Richard Law (MS 58), Steven Rieman (BS 74) and his wife, Ruth, and Bruce Heavin (BA 93) and his wife, former Art Center faculty member Lynda Weinmanâ€”followed by a $1 million grant from the Ralph M. Parsons Foundation. Renovation of the building received lead funding in the form of $500,000 grants from the Fletcher Jones Foundation, Hutto-Patterson Charitable Foundation and The Rose Hills Foundation.Art Center College of DesignFounded in 1930 and located in Pasadena, California, Art Center College of Design (artcenter.edu) is a global leader in art and design education.

The L.V. Rogers Bombers continue to roll on the West Kootenay High School Fieldhockey scene.The Bombers dominated a Stanley Humphries Rockers squad from Castlegar from start to finish en route to a 5-1 victory in action Thursday at the Pass Creek Fields.Stanley Humphries playing the game with eleven players ran into a brick wall as the Bombers controlled the game from the beginning and did not look back, chances and goals coming often for the Bombers. “Great passing and running by the Bombers kept Stanley Humphries on their heels all game,” said coach Bruce Walgren.LVR opened the scoring when Hanna Quinn combined some quick passing by the midfield, Allie Zondervan Noa Butterfield and Naomi Perkins. Emma Borhi scored the Bombers second of the game on a pass from Hanna Quinn and rookie Kassandra Schloeder to give LVR a 2-0 lead at the half.Rookie Liza Demski, Quinn and Borhi also scored in the second half.Stanley Humphries ruined the shutout bid by keeper Cammille Gebharts in the second half.”Much like in Oliver the lady bombers were very solid in the back line, Heather Potkins, Kyra Burkart, Noa Butterfield, Emma Gregorich, and Rookie Mia Kraus,” Walgren explained.”The nidfield lead by the stellar play of Allie Zondervan and Naomi Perkins just kept the pressure on Stanley Humphries and continuously fed the front line for some terrific scoring opportunities.”
15 September 2011South African website wine.co.za is offering free QR-codes – codes that can be read by smartphones – to local wine estates for use on their bottles, giving consumers quick and easy access to information about the wine on the internet.QR-codes (Quick Response Codes) are a kind of barcode that is printed on a product or label, which can then be photographed and interpreted by a smartphone. They usually contain links to enable easy access to websites, negating the need for consumers to have to type in long addresses or URLs.“By placing a QR-Code on say a back label, a wine producer can supply much more detailed information about their wine, directly to the consumer, at the time of purchase,” wine.co.za said in a statement this week. “In the case of wine.co.za, we have already created a mobi-page for every wine in our extensive database.“This page will present the full technical analysis, tasting notes, accolades, contact details of the producer.”Adding value to marketingAccording to wine.co.za, Wines of South Africa recently requested producers to take a look at QR-Codes as they add huge value to marketing wines, at very low cost, and with the free QR-Codes the cost remains very low.All wine producers need to do is to ensure that their information is kept up to date on wine.co.zaTo check out QR-Codes in action, go to www.wine.co.za/mobi and select a winery name to show a list of wines that wine.co.za has generated QR codes for.Then use your cell phone’s barcode reader to “photograph” that image. A web page will appear on your browser with everything about the chosen wine.Many smartphones come preloaded with QR-code readers. Otherwise, QR-code readers can be downloaded from the native “app” store.SAinfo reporterWould you like to use this article in your publication or on your website? See: Using SAinfo material
Issue 5: No polyethylene covering the dirt floorThe crawl space has a bare dirt floor. The crawl space air is in communication with the interior of the home. Because there is no vapor barrier on the dirt floor, ground moisture evaporates into the crawl space air, raising the interior relative humidity.Required Corrections: To limit the entry of ground moisture and soil gas, the dirt floor should be covered with a polyethylene vapor barrier, with seams lapped and sealed. The edges of the polyethylene should be sealed to the foundation wall. If radon testing shows elevated radon levels, then a sub-slab depressurization system should be installed to exhaust soil gases to the exterior.Ideally, add a layer of horizontal rigid insulation to limit heat transfer to the ground. Protect the insulation with a concrete “rat slab.” Issue 1: Electrical cable isn’t securely stapledAt some point in the past, modern electrical cable was installed to serve a floor receptacle. The cable was not properly fastened to the structure, and drapes freely across a five-foot span. This is a code violation.Required Corrections: The cable should be rerouted and supported with staples meeting building code requirements. If necessary, replace the cable so that it can be correctly routed and supported. Last week, GBA published a photo of a crawl space in an old house under the headline, “What’s Wrong With This Picture?”The photo showed an unvented crawl space in a cold climate. The home was built in 1885. This crawl space is attached to an adjacent concrete-floored basement. The foundation walls are made of mortared limestone.Even in the small area captured in the photo, there are a number of problems that compromise energy efficiency, building durability, and life safety. Here are our answers to the question posed last week. Garrett Mosiman works as a Research Fellow for the Center for Sustainable Research at the University of Minnesota. He has a bachelor’s degree in architecture from Rice University and an M.S. in architecture, Sustainable Design Track, from the University of Minnesota. He is also a LEED Accredited Professional. Issue 4: No capillary break at the top of the foundation wallThere is untreated wood in contact with the masonry foundation, a common situation in houses of this age. There are no signs of a capillary break to prevent foundation moisture from wicking into the framing.Required Corrections: If the foundation drainage is good and the assembly is exposed to warm interior air for drying, the risk of wood rot is relatively low. However, insulating the rim-joist area on the interior can increase the risk of rot, since added insulation would lower the drying potential of the sill. If the homeowner plans to insulate this area on the interior, it’s worth considering the installation of a capillary break. If the area will be insulated on the exterior, a capillary break may not be necessary.First, verify that there is good site and soil drainage on the exterior side of the assembly. Lift the sill — a task that sounds more daunting than it is in practice — and install a capillary break (metal flashing or a rubber membrane). Then insulate on the interior using rigid foam or spray polyurethane foam. Issue 3: Knob-and-tube wiringThere is some knob-and-tube wiring. Although the wire appears to be cut, it’s impossible to tell by looking at it whether the wire is still live.Required Corrections: The wire should be removed back to a code-approved junction box. Consider eliminating all knob-and-tube wiring in the house. Issue 6: The crawl space walls are uninsulatedThe foundation walls are uninsulated.Required Corrections: The crawl space walls can be insulated with rigid foam or closed-cell spray polyurethane foam. Because there is no capillary break at the top of the masonry wall, exterior insulation is preferable to interior insulation. Issue 2: Asbestos insulationA hydronic heat pipe is wrapped with asbestos insulation. The asbestos lacks encapsulation to prevent contact with asbestos fibers. If this insulation is abraded, asbestos fibers will be released into the air. If these fibers are inhaled, they can lodge deep in the lungs, eventually leading to lung disease.Required Corrections: Hire a certified asbestos abatement contractor to remove the asbestos or stabilize it in place.

zoom After it saw a growth rate of 24% in 2017, Poland’s Deepwater Container Terminal (DCT) Gdansk aims to continue growing this year as well.During the year, DCT Gdansk’s volumes increased to just under 1.6 million TEU as the company launched full operation of the second terminal T2, doubling its capacity.“This facilitated the continued growth of our relationship with the 2M Alliance and then in May the arrival of the OCEAN Alliance. Having the world’s two largest Alliances provide direct calls with the largest ships in their fleet is a real testament to the vision of building DCT Gdansk,” Cameron Thorpe, CEO of DCT Gdansk, said.Continuing to plan growth, DCT has initiated its ‘T2B program’, due to roll-out over the next 3 years.The program includes two additional ship-to-shore cranes arriving in the third quarter of 2018, enabling the T2 berth to deploy 7 cranes by the end of this year. In support there will be an expansion of the yard area with 5 additional all-electric e-RTGs.Thorpe said that over the next two years there will be a second fairway approach to the Port of Gdansk, to which DCT will have access.This will further reduce the time from pilot-station to berth, enhancing the total port turn-around time of the ULCV’s calling.“Longer-term, DCT has considerable ability to expand both berth and yard footprint, so we can effectively continue to grow in-line with market demand,” Thorpe concluded.
