  • Tusculum Residence / Smart Design Studio

    first_img “COPY” Text description provided by the architects. This exciting renovation and extension of a turn-of-the-century terrace house in Sydney’s Potts Point focuses on a grand and gracefully spiralling stair that forms the pivotal junction of the old and new parts of the house. The staircase, spanning the width of the building, features delicate fan-like steel treads cantilevered from the central steel post and winding their way past six split levels, offset between the old and new sides of the house. The stair was conceived as the element that grafts the contemporary and new minimal structure to the refined, trimmed and formal older portion of the dwelling.Save this picture!Courtesy of smart design studioRecommended ProductsEnclosures / Double Skin FacadesRodecaRound Facade at Omnisport Arena ApeldoornDoorsdormakabaEntrance Doors – Revolving Door 4000 SeriesDoorsLinvisibileLinvisibile Curved Hinged Door | AlbaEnclosures / Double Skin FacadesIsland Exterior FabricatorsCurtain Wall Facade SystemsSpacious living areas and private zones open out from each side of the stair with one area per level alternating between the old and new building. Formal living, dining, kitchen and informal living; master suite, guest suite, study and laundry: each zone maintains a natural sense of privacy from the other through the offset in level yet maintains a sense of interconnection in the openness and movement created by the stair. Save this picture!Courtesy of smart design studioInternally, finishes in the old portion of the house are contemporary and elegant in a stripped-classical style with deep flush skirting boards, mannered panelled doors and wide timber floorboards, all in gloss white paint and offset by richly coloured set plaster walls. In contrast, the mainly white extension with the same gloss white floorboards, features a black stained timber-boarded joinery element across three levels. Bronze window frames, ironmongery and trims unite both portions of the three-storey home.

An addition to this, the bi-folding doors are concealed by joinery to provide a seamless connection to the tiered rear garden with mature pepper tree. This house offers extraordinary spaces complemented by confident forms, understated design and exquisite detail.Save this picture!floor plansProject gallerySee allShow lessSuperbowl Project / Supermachine StudioArticlesAD Recommends: Best of the WeekArticles Share Save this picture!Courtesy of smart design studio+ 21 Share Australia “COPY” Architects: Smart Design Studio Area Area of this architecture project ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/234197/tusculum-residence-smart-design-studio Clipboard Projects CopyHouses•Sydney, Australia 2010center_img CopyAbout this officeSmart Design StudioOfficeFollow#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesDabasSydneyHouses3D ModelingAustraliaPublished on May 15, 2012Cite: “Tusculum Residence / Smart Design Studio” 15 May 2012.

  • Cranes approach World Cup qualifiers with Nations Cup gusto

    first_imgFridayGhana vs Uganda, 6.30pm (LIVE SS4/UBC)Group  A :Libya, Guinea, DR Congo, TunisiaGroup B: Zambia, Cameroon, Nigeria, AlgeriaGroup C: Gabon, Morocco, Mali, Ivory CoastGroup D: Burkina Faso, South Africa, Cape Verde, SenegalGroup E: Uganda, Congo, Egypt, GhanaMatchdays1: Oct 3-11 20162: Nov 7-15 20163/4: Aug 28-Sept 5 20175: Oct 2-10 20176: Nov 6-14 2017Before qualification for their first African Nations Cup finals can sink in, Uganda Cranes find themselves in the dip end of the 2018 FIFA World Cup qualifiers.The reward for dominating six brutal games will be a dream ticket as one of five African representatives to the World Cup. While qualification for the Nations Cup brought great scenes of joy from a glory starved nation, taking the act a step further to Russia would stun the world.Cranes coach, Serbian Milutin ‘Micho’ Sredojevic  was unfazed when the draw saw him placed in a group that has two teams that have been to the World Cup before. He said success in the Africa Cup of Nations qualification will be the perfect launch pad for the World Cup qualifiers – uncharted territory for Uganda so far.“Once we finish that (qualification for Gabon) we shall fly on the wings of confidence go to play World Cup qualifiers where we need to meet top class teams with no pressure on us,” Micho said Uganda after the draw. “Against these giants, the mental part is most important. Technically we shall be up to standard but question is can the whole country stand behind us with just 10 percent of a budget compared to others  we are competing against?”Money issues, for team and self, have been on the coach’s mind since then, with him creating a storm about salary arrears soon after qualification for Gabon.How much of that has taken his players off the ball, will be seen Friday when they play their second game since qualification for Gabon.They lost the first game, a friendly against Togo Tuesday, and Micho was quick to state that Cranes were happy with what they achieved in the game.“We have no time to dwell on the result of the game we played against Togo because our focus has always been on the game against Ghana. The Togo game simply helped us identify areas we need to improve and polish some others to help us get a very good result in Tamale,” the coach said.Other than doubts about goalkeeper Denis Onyango, Micho has his full team ahead of the key opening game at Tamale Sports Stadium.Tweets about @officialfufa Asamoah Gyan uneasyGhana’s Black Stars, without injured midfielders Andre ‘Dede’ Ayew and Kwadwo Asamoah, will be led by veteran striker Asamoah Gyan who is wary of the Ugandan visitors.Asamoah Gyan told the press that since becoming a member of the national team in 2003, the Ugandans have been a ‘headache’, adding that, “mostly we either draw or they win but the time has come for us to stop them and do so in style on Friday.”center_img Share on: WhatsApp Pages: 1 2last_img read more

  • Wildcats hit by Storm in final of Hawks Invitational

    first_imgBy Bruce Fuhr,The Nelson Daily Sports EditorThe Mount Sentinel Wildcats passed the first test of the 2010 B.C. High School Girl’s Volleyball season Saturday in Trail — well sort of.The Cats lost in straight sets (25-15, 25-20) to a much more experienced Selkirk Storm side from Kimberley but proved to head coach Joe Moreira this team will battle right to the bitter end. “We played great,” said Moreira when asked about his team’s play at the 38th annual High School Senior Girl’s Invitational Volleyball Tournament at the J. Lloyd Crowe gymnasium.“With only eight players (five – Grade 10’s and three – Grade 12’s) and no super stars like a (Team B.C. star) Katie Wayling, we are a very different team.“However, what we lack in experience, height, and provincial team calibre talent we proved, at least this weekend, that we can compete and play with tremendous enthusiasm.”Mount Sentinel completed the round robin draw undefeated, edging Selkirk Saturday morning just barely.The Cats dominated the other three teams in the tournament, L.V. Rogers Bombers of Nelson, Golden Eagles and host J. Lloyd Crowe Hawks. But in the final it was a different story as the Storm overwhelmed the Wildcats.Despite the loss in the final, Moreira believes this edition of the Wildcats has something he can build upon.“The surprise this weekend was our consistent play,” he said. “Something that was quite unexpected, but a great delight to see.”SIDE OUT: The Cats travel to Kelowna Friday to compete in the Immaculata Invitational Tournament. . . . The L.V. Rogers Bombers squad struggled in its first test of the high school season, finishing fifth in the tournament. Golden edged host J. Lloyd Crowe Hawks in the bronze medal [email protected]last_img read more

  • Fighting hunger on wheels

    first_imgFor those who are unable to make provisions for the future, the retirement years are extremely difficult; this is why Meals on Wheels has begun the Caregiver Initiative and started it at Reuven Old Age Home in the south of Johannesburg. Christine Crossly, caregiver to 284 elderly residents at Reuven. One of the many vegetable gardens being planted at Reuven as part of their makeover project.(Images: Cadine Pillay)MEDIA CONTACTS • Michelle Wohlberg,Meals on Wheels+27 82 410 3576 or +27 86 000 0700Cadine PillayMeals on Wheels (MoW) was established in 1942 and has since been operating a community feeding scheme serving hungry families and delivering nutritious meals to schools, orphanages and shelters for the homeless across South Africa.Their 141 branches countrywide serve over 400 service points and in 2011, the organisation broke its own record, providing more than 13-million meals over the duration of the year.For staff in the Johannesburg branch, the need for such an organisation is experienced far and wide. Finding himself in a desperate situation, a Johannesburg school principal who recently discovered that 80 of his pupils were coming to school hungry on most days, requested MoW’s help, and their response was to deliver meals for them twice a week.The organisation’s volunteers also operate several soup kitchens in some of the city’s poor areas and surrounding towns such as Alberton, Moffat View, Rosettenville and Boksburg. In these communities, MoW has found a situation where unemployment among the adults leads to a vulnerability to crime and the elements, as most have nowhere else to go.Even larger organisations such as the Salvation Army in Johannesburg depend on the help of MoW. Specially prepared meals are made by volunteers and collected regularly by officials from the Salvation Army for their HIV positive patients.Over their years of service, however, the people at MoW realised that it was more than just food that people needed. In a lot of cases, caregiving services were also a necessity.“The more we expand the meal delivery service, the more we come across traumatic situations that demand far more than just food,” said Enrico Robinson, the organisation’s manager.Caring for the agedIn an effort to address this situation, the organisation started its caregiving initiative, which also extends countrywide. At Reuven Old Age Home in the south of Johannesburg, Christine Crossly is the only caregiver to the 284 residents.Her job includes assessing and analysing their needs, which may include taking some of the residents to the nearby hospital for their chronic medication and check-ups, fetching medication for those who don’t have to go, and running other errands on their behalf.“Most of these people just need attention and care, even if it’s just having a cup of tea with them,” said Crossly.She has several resident volunteers who assist her with her duties, providing caregiver services for the more frail residents. Crossly encourages interaction amongst the residents so that they can take care of each other in her absence. The volunteers also help out at MoW’s weekly soup kitchens around the city.MoW gives training to people who want to become caregivers. The organisation’s vision is to provide caregivers for every home or shelter that needs them.“As cheesy as it sounds, our mission is to feed and look after the world,” said Michelle Wohlberg of MoW. “We want to take care of their physical and emotional needs.”Inspired to make a difference in the lives of poor people, Wohlberg moved from a professional career in the corporate sector several years ago to work for MoW.“One of our volunteers, who is also a pensioner, has not received his monthly grant for several months. This left him in a situation where he was unable to pay his rent,” she explained.With the help of a local company that is now sponsoring R500 (US$60), she said, his monthly expenses are covered. The company agreed to keep the sponsorship up until the problem with his pension pay-out has been resolved.Restoring hope Another of MoW’s initiatives organises refurbishing of the living spaces in which the volunteers’ charges live. The makeover project encourages companies or individuals to adopt a family or orphanage that is in dire need, and to give their surroundings a complete makeover.Some of the companies go beyond just sponsoring the refurbishment, but also use the opportunity as a team building exercise for their employees. At Reuven in particular, some of the makeover work involved planting vegetable gardens outside each residential block and painting the walls in the rooms as well as outside.last_img read more

  • Financial Statements – That is just BS

    first_imgThis post was published on the Military Families Learning Network Blog on August 14, 2013. By Michael GutterYour BS (Balance Sheet) is an important way to track your family’s fiscal health. Having the right records create benchmarks so you can track your progress. Have you ever dieted? Creating and updating your balance sheet is a lot like stepping on a scale. At that moment, you know where we stand. A balance sheet accounts for what we own and what we owe. By thinking about this number one can set a targeted net worth for the end of each year, much the same way we might target a lower weight or BMI score. You can look at how to improve your net worth. We can seek to increase our assets through things like saving and investing some of your income. Your investments should increase over time adding to your wealth. We also can look at whether or not we need to reduce what we owe. Having too much debt lowers your net worth and usually reduces the amount of cash flows available for saving or even for fun.It is important to track your flows as well. We can use an income and expense statement where our money flows; flows in, flows out. Going back to our diet analogy an income and expense statement is like a food diary to see where your calories went for the day.  You compare your record to your budget (diet plan) and see whether you are sticking to your plan. If your income is more than our expenses, then make sure you have a plan for saving. If you are losing ground it is important to look for ways to cut back. Helpful suggestions for cutting back can be found here.For more on creating financial statements, check out a helpful web conference. This session includes a case study and great discussion.Once you have these statements, you want to explore what they tell you about your Financial Strengths, Weaknesses, Opportunities, and Threats.For more on Ratio and SWOT analysis, check out this webinar.last_img read more

  • 5 Rules for Nurturing Your Dream Clients

    first_img Get the Free eBook! Want to master cold calling? Download my free eBook! Many would have you believe that cold calling is dead, but the successful have no fear of the phone; they use it to outproduce their competitors. Download Now If you want to win your dream clients, you have to nurture those relationships over time. You have to make the deposits that make you known and that make you known as a value creator. Here are 5 rules to help you nurture your dream clients without making the mistakes most sales organizations and salespeople make.It must come from you: I love marketing. But if something shows up in your dream client’s inbox from marketing—even if it has your name on it—it is spam. You are the one nurturing the relationship, so any deposit in that relationship must necessarily come from you. Later, you are going to ask for their time, and you are going to be the one they work with. You do the nurturing.It must not be behind the wall: Let’s say you have some killer piece of content your dream client might benefit from reading and implementing in their business. If you send a link to that content that requires them to enter their name, email address, and phone number in order to download it, you are not nurturing the relationship. Send them the white paper, case study, or idea directly.It must contain a personal note: If the note you send was written by marketing and intended to be used on every email, it is not nurturing. You have to send your communication with a personal note from you, and it’s even more powerful if you know something about your dream client that you can include. Without the personal note, we’re back to spam.It must contain an actionable, valuable idea: This is where some people get a little cross with me. If you send something to your dream client with the intention of making a deposit in your relationship, it has to be something of value. You have to be prepared to share a valuable idea, even though your dream client may use that idea without hiring you. If you want to be know as a value creator, you have to have and a share valuable ideas. Nothing less will do.It must not contain an ask: If you are making a deposit in the relationship, make it. But don’t also attempt to make a withdrawal at the same time. It goes like this: Deposit. Deposit. Deposit. Withdrawal. When you are nurturing, nurture. When you are asking, ask!

  • Virat Kohli hungry to win overseas and that matters a lot: Sourav Ganguly to India Today

    first_imgVirat Kohli’s Team India are on a rampaging form making huge strides in the world of cricket since past two years.From Ravi Shastri’s first stint and Anil Kumble’s one-year tenure to the return of Shastri, India have registered eight successive Test series wins.Along with eyeing a series victory in the upcoming Delhi Test match against Sri Lanka, India are also looking to level Australia’s record of nine consecutive Test series wins.Even if India get the record, it is after after the record that their real challenge would start.With the Indian team scheduled to play four big series outside the sub continent in South Africa, England, Australia and New Zealand and the 2019 World Cup in England in the next year and a half, this phase is what could possibly define the legacy Virat Kohli’s Team India.The man who showed India the way to win overseas, former captain Sourav Ganguly thinks success in these upcoming overseas tours is not just a dream.”Overseas is the real challenge. And I think this team can win. They have the fast bowlers and the ability to take 20 wickets. I hope in the next 15 months, India will come good. I think India will do well overseas under Kohli. Virat Kohli has the hunger to win overseas and that matters a lot,” Ganguly told India Today.India’s away season will kick off early next year with a three-match Test series against South Africa — a place that has its own demons for India. Ganguly fondly remembers the Johannesburg Test of 2006, the only Test India have won in South Africa and never have they won a Test series there. However, he refuses to get into comparisons between that side and the current one.advertisement”This team is balanced. I don’t know more or less as compared to teams we went to South Africa with. Players come from different generations but I hope Indian bowlers get 20 wickets. That will be crucial because it won’t turn there,” he said. Selectors are due to pick the squad for the South Africa series next week and Ganguly reckons India should only go in with three spinners.”It depends on the captain. If he wants to take three spinners, they will need an extra keeper as well. If I was Virat Kohli, my thinking would be to ask myself which spinner I want to play in the first Test. Because you won’t play two spinners in the eleven. If Virat thinks Kuldeep will play then take him. If your thinking is Ashwin, Jadeja then Kuldeep, might as well take 5 fast bowlers,” he opined.The former skipper is unhappy about the lack of practice games for the team before the Tests even though the team is trying to make up by playing on greener wickets in the ongoing Test series against Sri Lanka.”One practice game is not ideal. I always think when we go to South Africa, England, Australia, you need two or three practice games. We should have focused on this more. But that’s how it is now. Will have to make do,” he said. “The earlier they acclimatise, it will help them do well,” he added.last_img read more
