Framed House is a renovation to the back of an existing semi-detached house in Vaucluse. The project included a new open-plan Living/Dining/Kitchen area, two bathrooms and the conversion of an existing pool into a landscaped garden.Save this picture!© Tom FergusonSave this picture!PlansSave this picture!© Tom FergusonThe name Framed is a result of the main connecting element of the house: the pivot doors and hood that act as a ‘frame’, ‘framing’ the view to the garden.Save this picture!© Tom FergusonThe new design of the Living/Dining/Kitchen area and relocation of the existing Laundry services enabled a more efficient layout which was enhanced by two major decisions: reclaiming the roof space by demolishing the existing flat ceiling and opening up the rear facade of the house, incorporating new pivot doors to the garden for maximum opening area. These two interventions to the space transformed the living experience dramatically by amplifying the sense of spaciousness with a higher ceiling and a more generous and seamless transition to the outdoor area, keeping the inside and outside at the same level. Save this picture!© Tom FergusonThe Ground Floor Bathroom which was originally a Bedroom, was re-designed incorporating its traditional elements. This was achieved by replacing traditional skirtings, vertical decorative profiles and picture-hanging rails for waterproofed ones, and by specifying large porcelain tiles to eliminate tile grouting to give the illusion of having typical rendered and painted walls. This room, which also includes the relocated Laundry, has minimised the feel of a wet room.Save this picture!© Tom FergusonFramed House has truly fulfilled the Client’s brief, from the integral general layout to Joinery detailing. The Client had a clear idea on how they wanted to interact with the space and what were their needs. It was early identified that their existing pool was not of value to them, having the beach in close proximity. This was the first element to be deleted from the project to allow for a lawn instead; with demolished pool fences, the outdoor area was instantly increased, and a new generous garden was created.Save this picture!© Tom FergusonInternally, all the joinery was designed to maximise storage, to fulfil everyday needs and to enrich experience through custom detailing. The property has a clear division between old and new, with the new alterations to the back of the house and with a retained old traditional feel to the front, including the new Ground Floor Bathroom with all its traditional elements as per the Client’s brief and acknowledgement of the past.Save this picture!© Tom FergusonProject gallerySee allShow lessTofu Factory / DnASelected ProjectsHL Building / BASIOSelected ProjectsProject locationAddress:Vaucluse NSW 2030, AustraliaLocation to be used only as a reference.

New multiple myeloma initiative to be established

first_imgDana-Farber Cancer Institute will establish the Riney Family Multiple Myeloma Initiative to help improve outcomes and accelerate understanding of the underlying biology for the most challenging types of myelomas, cancers that form in a type of white blood cell called a plasma cell. The initiative is being established with a $16.5 million gift from Paula and Rodger Riney of St. Louis, Missouri.The gift from the couple’s foundation, the Paula and Rodger Riney Foundation, is their first gift to Dana-Farber, and is the largest single gift from a family to support multiple myeloma cancer research and care in Dana-Farber’s history. The Riney Family Multiple Myeloma Initiative at Dana-Farber will add to their legacy of multiple myeloma support, which includes gifts to Washington University School of Medicine and the Multiple Myeloma Research Foundation (MMRF), and will improve outcomes for myeloma patients everywhere.Rodger Riney was diagnosed with multiple myeloma in 2015 and treated at the Washington University School of Medicine and Siteman Cancer Center at Barnes-Jewish Hospital. In 2018, Ken Anderson, program director at Dana-Farber’s Jerome Lipper Multiple Myeloma Center and LeBow Institute for Myeloma Therapeutics and Kraft Family Professor of Medicine at Harvard Medical School, joined as an advisor to Riney’s care team.“As a myeloma patient, you are very aware of the groundbreaking work being done at Dana-Farber in multiple myeloma. Dana-Farber is an institution we want to invest in given its impressive track record in improving myeloma treatment,” said Riney. “Our hope is that this gift will inspire others to support Dana-Farber’s researchers and clinicians to extend survivorship, and ultimately find a cure.”“We are deeply grateful to the Riney Family for this inspired gift that will quickly advance our knowledge of multiple myeloma. While we have made significant strides in treating multiple myeloma, this initiative provides an opportunity to accelerate the most promising strategies and meaningfully extend remissions,” said Laurie H. Glimcher, president and CEO, Dana-Farber Cancer Institute.In the U.S., about four people per 100,000 are diagnosed with multiple myeloma each year. Because of the availability of new and more effective drugs for the treatment of multiple myeloma, the prognosis of some people diagnosed with this condition has improved significantly in recent years, but for other patients the disease remains challenging to treat.The Riney Family Multiple Myeloma Initiative will support three aims over the next two years:Identify and target genomic and epigenomic abnormalities, unraveling the biological determinants of disease behavior in general as well as in certain high-risk multiple myeloma sub groups;Develop novel therapeutics to target both tumor cells and the host immune microenvironment, bringing more durable, immune-based combination therapies to patients in the near-term; andCreate infrastructure for big data management and open access myeloma research resources, catalyzing new collaborations and providing access to novel technologies to improve the way multiple myeloma research is conducted in the future.“We send our heartfelt thanks to Paula and Rodger for their confidence in our team,” said Anderson. “With their tremendous gift, we have an unprecedented opportunity to develop highly personalized novel targeted and immune treatments for patients facing the most challenging forms of this disease. Their extraordinary support will foster collaborative efforts to benefit patients and their families world-wide.”last_img read more

Pecan Scab Resistance

first_imgA major disease plaguing Georgia’s pecan crop, scab is a growing problem for state producers due to increasing resistance to the fungicides used to control the disease.“I do think it’s something farmers need to be concerned about,” said Katherine Stevenson, a University of Georgia plant pathologist based in Tifton. “We’re always recommending that they don’t use the same product over and over again because that’s just asking for trouble, that’s just asking for resistance to develop. We’re always encouraging growers to use different products and rotate the several different chemistries that are available to them.”The fungal pathogen that causes scab overwinters in the tree, as lesions on stems and old nut shucks remain in the tree after harvest. When temperatures start to warm in the spring, the fungus becomes active and starts to produce new spores, which are spread by rain and wind. Farmers repeatedly use fungicide treatments to try to combat scab disease during rainy growing seasons, like that of 2013. This repeated exposure is causing scab to develop resistance to certain chemicals, making an already difficult-to-control disease much more challenging to treat.“Scab — we’ve always had it, and it’s always out there, but the severity of it is very environmentally dependent,” said Tim Brenneman, UGA scientist in Tifton.“Last year we had a wet summer into the fall. We had a lot of scab carrying over. This year we had a wet spring — April and May were very wet — so it’s kind of a worst case scenario in that scab really exploded.”“With the heavy use of fungicides on the pecan crop, we know that resistance is a potential risk. We’ve seen shifts in the sensitivity of the pathogen to some of our main fungicides. It’s becoming less sensitive,” he continued.Scab disease is not usually a tree killer, but it will reduce yields. Farmers expected a yield of more than 90 million pounds in 2013, but their trees only produced a little more than 60 million pounds. One big reason was scab. If scab infects the nut in the early stages of development, the pecan may fall off. Scab can cause leaf loss and also produce black lesions on the pecan shucks any time during the season, which can reduce nut size and, therefore, yield.Brenneman and Stevenson have known that scab resistance could be a problem for more than a decade. However, during a fungicide sensitivity monitoring program in the summer of 2014, more than 200 samples of pecan leaves from around the state were tested, and the plant pathologists’ concerns were confirmed.“We have a lot more issues with resistant scab than we realized,” Brenneman said. “We’d have growers coming back with resistance to three different chemicals and some levels of very high resistance.”The goal of the program, which is ongoing, is for UGA to test the scab samples against six different fungicides to determine which fungicides are still working.“We’re really trying to get a feel for what the sensitivity is to these different fungicides. How bad is the resistance problem out there? How widespread is it?” Stevenson said.The long growing season of early April through late September is another reason treatment applications are a challenge. Growers typically spray for scab at least every two weeks, but during an extremely wet growing season like last year, producers are more often on a seven- to 10-day spraying schedule.“In wet years like last year and this year, farmers are spraying a lot, and they’re spraying everything they can spray. It puts a lot of pressure on the pathogen populations. It’s an ideal situation to get resistance if you spray every week or (every) 10 days all season long,” Stevenson said.Due to their ability to produce a high-quality nut, the Desirable cultivar is the main variety of pecan grown in Georgia. Unfortunately, they are also the most susceptible to scab, Brenneman said.Adding to the challenge of spraying for scab disease are the pecan trees themselves. Pecans are a perennial crop, meaning they’re not replanted every year, like peanuts or corn. Farmers rotate their peanut and corn crops every two or three years, so they don’t use the same chemicals each year. For pecan orchards, there is no rotational cycle. The same grove is receiving the same chemical application year after year, allowing naturally present fungi to develop resistance.Also, pecan trees can reach 60 to 70 feet or more, making them very challenging to spray. “You have areas that don’t get sprayed effectively,” said Brenneman. “Any time that you have pockets that don’t get sprayed as well or just get a partial dose, you could potentially select resistance in those areas.”last_img read more

The Red Queen Did Not Invent Sex

first_imgA Darwinian story just died.  One of the evolutionary stories for the origin of sex is the “Red Queen” hypothesis.  Named after a character in Alice in Wonderland, it is the idea that an organism must continually change just to stay the same, like running and getting nowhere.  Technically, it states that “sexual reproduction is maintained because it improves a species’ ability to respond to a changing biotic environment.”  First proposed by Van Valen in 1973, it has been a favorite among competing hypotheses for the origin of sex.    Otto and Nuismer, publishing in the May 14 issue of Science,1 investigated this hypothesis with a population genetics model and found it wanting.  Their abstract summarizes, “Our results show that species interactions typically select against sex.  We conclude that, although the Red Queen favors sex under certain circumstances, it alone does not account for the ubiquity of sex.”  (For more on the origin of sex, see 05/12/2004 commentary.)1Sarah P. Otto and Scott L. Nuismer, “Species Interactions and the Evolution of Sex,” Science, Vol 304, Issue 5673, 1018-1020, 14 May 2004, [DOI: 10.1126/science.1094072].How long do we have to watch Charlie shoot himself in the foot before we conclude he should not run for Sheriff?    Montana teachers, beware!  Do not quote this paper in biology class.  Since it casts doubt on the Darwinian paradigm, it’s against the law (see 05/13/2004 headline).(Visited 10 times, 1 visits today)FacebookTwitterPinterestSave分享0last_img read more

Mens basketball What exactly is wrong with Ohio State

Redshirt junior guard Kam Williams (15) shoots the ball during the Buckeyes home opener against North Carolina Central. The Buckeyes won 69-63. Ashley Nelson | Sports DirectorFew things have went right for the Ohio State men’s basketball team since Big Ten play began on Jan 1. The Buckeyes have lost three straight games to conference opponents, most recently a 78-68 loss to Minnesota in Williams Arena.Things will only be getting tougher from here on out for OSU, as the Buckeyes are set to take on No. 18 Wisconsin. Last season, Thad Matta’s team lost 79-68 to the Badgers.The Badgers are 13-3 this year, and are coming off an 11-point loss to Purdue, a team that OSU lost to by just one point on Thursday. Although Wisconsin was downed by the Boilermakers, there seems little to convince anyone OSU can easily handle a team as dangerous as the Badgers.After the loss to Purdue, senior forward Marc Loving said he felt confident in OSU’s ability to right the ship this season, regardless of how rocky the start had been.“We know what we’re capable of,” he said.Whatever he feels the team is capable of has yet to be seen this season. The Buckeyes have appeared sluggish on defense and disconnected on offense at times.Even with occasional glimpses into the capability of players like Loving and redshirt senior guard Kam Williams, OSU is shooting a feeble 38.8 percent from the field, with just a 31.8 percent mark from outside the arc.Williams, who started the year shooting 56 percent from 3-point range through the team’s first six games, has gone just 4-for-14 from 3 since the start of conference play. Although other players like Loving and sophomore guard JaQuan Lyle present a perimeter threat, the lack of outside scoring has stifled the Buckeyes’ offense.Correcting mistakes from outside might be an easy fix with more practice. However, the Buckeyes have struggled to limit opposing scoring attacks, giving up an average of 65.6 points per game, which puts OSU at No. 55 in the nation.More worryingly, the Buckeyes force an average of 13.06 turnovers per game, tied with Army West Point as 221st in the nation. Without forcing turnovers, there seems little hope of OSU putting up enough points to overcome opponents, especially a Badgers team that averages 76 points per game.With a lack turnovers and shooting struggles, the Buckeyes will need nothing short of a mid-season miracle to make OSU relevant in the Big Ten again. Regardless, veterans like junior forward Jae’Sean Tate are remaining positive through the hard times.“I wouldn’t say (there is) concern because we work our butts off every day,” Tate said. “We’re in here every day. We’ve just got to keep grinding it. We’ve got to keep working and trusting (Matta.) The outcome is going to be there.”He went on to say he felt the Buckeyes will hit their stride soon. However, until OSU corrects the glaring problems in front of them, the team will be taking nothing more than baby steps. read more
