first_imgLATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS Delve into the living history book that is the first capital of Japan TAGS: Japan Advertising FeatureJapan 2019 Travel Guide: NaraHead off the beaten path and visit the Nara Prefecture, which is full of World Heritage Sites and picturesque villages…The Culture Vulture Rather than just visit a temple, why not stay in one? Mount Shigi offers such lodgings, where you can sample shojin ryori cuisine (the traditional dining style of Buddhist monks) and take in the temple grounds at night.As the centre of trade between Japan and the Silk Road, Nara was the first place to receive new ideas from overseas. Buddhism also spurred innovation, from the cloth for priests’ garments to the calligraphy brushes, paper and inks used for copying sutras and the tea whisk (Chasen). Look out for these traditional crafts in the shops of Nara.Red-leaf road: An autumnal view at Mount YoshinoMount Yoshino, Horyuji Temple and Nara City are all World Heritage Sites, providing an insight into the area’s unique history.The Foodie In the towns along the pilgrimage routes through Nara, a special type of sushi evolved. Kakinoha-zushi, meaning ‘persimmon-leaf sushi’, is a small portion of rice topped with a slice of raw salmon or mackerel and wrapped in a persimmon leaf. The leaves have anti-bacterial properties that keep the sushi fresh. Well worth a taste test.It’s a wrap: Kakinoha-zushi is wrapped in a persimmon leafSomen, fine white noodles that are often eaten chilled in summer, originated in the Mount Miwa area. And there are plenty of options for fine dining, too, with 20 Michelin-starred restaurants in Nara.The Adventurer The best way to discover Nara at your own pace is by bike. In the city there is a 25km World Heritage Tour that takes in the main landmarks, or head out into the countryside for a 40km ride on the Yamanobe-no-Michi Trail, a section of Japan’s first road that takes you to ancient sites.At Asuka, rent an electric bike to discover beautiful terraced rice fields as well as temples, tombs and giant stones, and stop by a cozy café for a break.Nara is full of adventures. Traditional martial arts Yagyu-Ryu (swordsmanship) and Hozoin-Ryu Sojutsu (spearmanship) were founded in Nara 460 years ago.The Party Animal Refined sake has a 400-year history in Nara, with the area offering visitors brewery and tasting tours.Old and new: A traditional narrow street in NaramachiTo the south of Nara Park, where you can see deer, is the old town of Naramachi. The narrow streets of traditional merchant houses now host shops, galleries, cafés and bars. It’s an easy area to cover on foot and is the perfect place for a night out.For more travel information…www.visitnara.jp How to get thereNara is easily accessible by train from Japan’s big cities.

Conran & Partners has designed a highly environmentally responsible, contemporary, family home in the grounds of a former school in East Sussex. The house expresses the strong horizontals found in the walls and hedges of the existing garden whilst built from a palette of high quality, traditional materials. Nestled into the existing trees to the north of the site, the house optimises its orientation with glazed south facing elevations, shaded by large overhangs. The copper clad first floor takes a linear form, spanning across the lower level from east to west and acts as an acoustic separation between the garden and the noise generated by the nearby A26. Waste from the dig for the site was mounded along the boundary of the road to further improve the noise levels in the garden.

S Mahal House / Moon Hoon

Posted On Jun 17 2021 by

first_imgCopySave this picture!© Kim Yong KwanText description provided by the architects. Yangpyeong ResidenceWhen I was a high school student, I had a friend of slight build who always used to carry the Book of Changes with him and was interested in Korean traditional classical music. He was faithful in his religious life, at the same time full of curiosity about the secular world and always paced around restlessly. One day after 20 years, he called me out of the blue. He had in the meantime become a veterinarian and wished to move to India a few years later to lead his own life. After getting together with him for a chat over a drink a couple of times he asked me to design a house where he, his wife and her parents would live together. He wanted me to build an inner court and madang where he could raise animals, as well as a prayer room.Save this picture!© Park Chan Woo The land he purchased in Daesim-ri, Yangpyeong was a place where water, a rice paddy, a forest and livestock stables were intermingled. Despite a budget that was on the tight side, I was able to create seven inner courts including one for every room plus one in the center, while designing a circulatory balcony where there was sufficient space for the house owner and his cats and dogs to roam about freely. Although it was quite different from India that my friend had been dreaming of, I designed a sonarasi (an autistic interpretation of Varanasi), which was also used as a pool, and completed a prayer room (Ssalon de Sson) where his nostalgia about room salons and his obsession with prayer were mixed.Save this picture!© Kim Yong Kwan In order to crate a boundary between the circulatory balcony with the outside, I initially considered hard and cold finishing materials. Due to the low budget, however, we had to improvise and finally opted for a finish with curtains made from waterproof cloth. The waving of the soft walls on a breezy day made it clear to me: the house is truly alive. When I walked around inside the house, the soft walls reacting to my body brought me exquisite feelings.Save this picture!© Kim Yong Kwan After a few weeks when a strong wind blew, the curtains waved like the hair of a crazy women and his family who witnessed the scene voiced their discomfort over this unexpected eeriness, unable to stand the confusion and dizziness much longer.Save this picture!© Kim Yong Kwan The friend and I express regret over the curtains that became the lost wings.Save this picture!First Floor PlanProject gallerySee allShow lessBalancing Barn / MVRDVSelected ProjectsA Look at Hollywood’s Love Affair with John LautnerArticles Share S Mahal House / Moon Hoon Area:  14712 m² Area:  14712 m² Year Completion year of this architecture project Architects: Moon Hoon Area Area of this architecture project photographs:  Kim Yong Kwan, Park Chan WooPhotographs:  Kim Yong Kwan, Park Chan Woo+ 39 Share 2007 S Mahal House / Moon HoonSave this projectSaveS Mahal House / Moon HoonSave this picture!© Kim Yong KwanHouses•South Korea “COPY” 2007 Photographs Year: center_img South Korea Year:  ArchDaily Houses “COPY” Projects ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/357210/s-mahal-house-moon-hoon Clipboard ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/357210/s-mahal-house-moon-hoon Clipboard CopyAbout this officeMoon HoonOfficeFollowProductConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesHousesSouth KoreaPublished on April 21, 2013Cite: “S Mahal House / Moon Hoon” 21 Apr 2013.

Weed Control in 2020 Could be Costly

Posted On Jun 14 2021 by

first_img Weed Control in 2020 Could be CostlyToo wet, too dry, and then too wet again. That pretty well sums up 2019 in a nutshell, right? One of the many problems that caused was the “too wet” periods were when field work and preparation were to take place. Dr. Bill Johnson, Purdue professor of weed science, says that will likely result in a lot of weed pressure in 2020.“A lot of those fields that did have a crop in them had weeds that went to seed. Then we had such a high percentage of the acres that were prevent plant as well, and if nothing was done for weed control on the prevent plant acres then there’s going to be a tremendous weed seed bank to deal with in 2020.”Johnson says budgeting for weed control in 2020 could get expensive.“If you’re the type of person that is typically trying to minimize weed control costs, yes, it will be a significant increase in expenses. Maybe double to triple what you normally spend on that particular prevent plant piece of ground. If you’re a person that is used to using robust residuals and full rates of herbicides post-emergence, it shouldn’t be too much of a battle. Certainly, you have some notes on what weed went to seed if you have to make some minor adjustments for those fields that were prevent plant.”Johnson predicts the three biggest headaches in 2020 from a weed standpoint.“It’s going to be marestail. It’s going to be waterhemp, and it’s going to be giant ragweed for sure. Depending on the weather conditions, if it turns out hot and dry, we could have isolated areas with Palmer amaranth that really tortures us as well.”Tune in Monday (same HAT-time, same HAT-channel) to hear Johnson break down what his plan of attack would be for those three headache weeds.

Death threat to Bulgarian news website publisher

Organisation Help by sharing this information Bulgaria: RSF condemns refusal to investigate reporter’s violent arrest Reporters Without Borders (RSF) is appalled to learn that Bulgarian criminal gang leaders are allegedly planning to murder Zov News website publisher Georgi Ezekiev and calls on the Bulgarian authorities to carry out an immediate investigation.The alleged murder plan came to light earlier this month in the course of a joint investigation by Zov News and the investigative news website Bivol into a drug trafficking ring in which police officers are thought to be implicated. A person who used to be involved in this network told the reporters in a filmed interview that his former mafia bosses were planning to eliminate Ezekiev.One of the reporters participating in this investigation, Maria Dimitrova, meanwhile received threatening messages by SMS and on Facebook. And shortly after Dimitrova managed to get one of the gang’s victims to talk to her, three unidentified men physically attacked her informant.“We are very worried about the threats to website publisher Georgi Ezekiev and one of his reporters, who filed a complaint that was ignored by the police,” said Pauline Adès-Mével, the head of RSF’s EU-Balkans desk. “The Bulgarian authorities must take these threats and attacks seriously, must do everything possible to protect the targets and must carry out a thorough investigation into this affair.”Bulgaria is ranked 109th out of 180 countries in RSF’s 2017 World Press Freedom Index, the lowest position of any European Union member.
