Treehouse is located in the town of Ubud, at the heart of the island of Bali. Surrounded by jungle to the sides and rice terraces in the front, this suite from the boutique hotel Stonehouse, stands five meters above the ground thanks to its 14 centimeter diameter and 8 meter long bamboo pillars.Save this picture!© Matias AllendeSave this picture!PlanSave this picture!Section BBSave this picture!© Matias AllendeTree House’s ceiling is made from 3 centimeter wide x 2.5 centimeter thick x 4 meter long bamboo splits, creating a grid-shell that derives its strength from its double curvature. The overall shape shows the integration of architecture and environment, and the relationship between space and nature. The interior floor is also made from bamboo splits that smoothly transitions into a wooden terrace. This moment in the building highlights the wall-less space that keeps indoors and outdoors as one unity. The interior design bows to the beauty and sacredness of bamboo with a circular nest-like custom made bed by the studio.Save this picture!© Matias AllendeOther features like the toilet cave and shower bring their inspiration from the adjacent jungle.

UW defenseman Justin Schultz leads the Badgers with 34 points, one of which came earlier against Michigan Tech Oct. 30. The Huskies shocked many early this season with an undefeated record, but after facing Wisconsin, they have gone without a victory.[/media-credit]The last time Michigan Tech and Wisconsin met, the Huskies were undefeated at 3-0-2. It was a surprising start for a team that went 5-30-1 the season before.Then, history caught up with head coach Jamie Russell’s squad.Wisconsin won both its games against Michigan Tech, taking 5-2 and 4-1 decisions en route to a series sweep.Since then, MTU is 0-16-1. The Huskies haven’t won a game since October and sit at a record that’s more par for the course in Houghton – 3-18-3.Meanwhile, the Badgers have caught fire, winners of 10 of their last 11. No. 8 Wisconsin sits at 17-8-3 and in fifth place in the WCHA, with 20 points.Right now, though, the focus for Wisconsin is on the trip to the Upper Peninsula and a continuation of the team’s winning ways.“They are a big team and I think on a big sheet of ice, with our abilities it minimizes it to some degree,” UW head coach Mike Eaves said. “I think going on a small sheet, it maximizes their ability to take away time and space. We’ll practice on a small sheet all week this week and having played, not this past weekend, but the weekend before, on a small sheet in Duluth should help us prepare for playing against them.”Wisconsin’s last experience on a small sheet of ice came with mixed results – the Badgers split a series in Duluth with the offensively skilled Bulldogs, and although they came up with a 3-2 win in game two, they watched a 3-0 lead slip away late in the third period.However, as Eaves mentioned, the issue with the Huskies will be size, rather than skill.19 players on the MTU roster are at least six feet tall, as opposed to 11 for UW. Even more impressively, five players are 6-foot-4 or taller, including forwards Daniel Holmberg and leading scorer Milos Gordic (11-6-17).Wisconsin maxes out at 6-foot-3, in forwards Sean Dolan and Gavin Hartzog. However, any size advantage the Huskies have held hasn’t helped in terms of game results.Michigan Tech is dead last in the WCHA in scoring defense (4.38 goals allowed per game) and second to last in scoring offense, putting in just 2.29 goals per game. The Huskies have been shut out in three consecutive games and have scored three goals or more in a game just three times since the beginning of December.Wisconsin’s nation-leading scoring defense (2.04 goals allowed per game) doesn’t bode well for Michigan Tech, nor does the Badgers’ 3.39 goals scored per game.MTU fares slightly better on the power play, sitting middle of the pack in the conference with a 20-percent conversion rate. Wisconsin leads the WCHA with a 25.7-percent mark.The success the Badgers have with the man-advantage could be an issue for the Huskies, who are next-to-last in penalty killing, with just a 74.2-percent mark.But despite the struggles MTU is mired in – both this season and in past seasons – Eaves is making sure his team is ready to compete.“You know, it’s trying to turn around a big ship in the middle of the ocean. Sometimes it takes time,” Eaves said of Russell and the Huskies. “And I know for one thing, they’re a wounded animal right now, and they’re going, they’re going to give us everything we have. And if we sit back at all, we’re going to have our hat handed to us.”
Meantime, the provincial cabinet decision on the project, the second major hurdle cited by the story, is slated to come next month while the debate continues.The Globe says the government’s reputation for sound fiscal management could be at stake given the massive project cost and the fact returns will likely not come back until long after most of the current MLAs have left office.Thus the decision is not seen as a slam dunk and the Globe says even Energy Minister Bill Bennett wants to know whether the private sector can provide the power for less.He’s quoted as saying, “It will be a long and difficult discussion became everybody wants certainty.”Advertisement Read the entire Globe and Mail article here.With files from The Globe and Mail Claiming B.C. Hydro has already spent a third of a billion dollars laying the groundwork for the third dam on the Peace River, reporter Justine Hunter says the Crown Corporation wants to start by mid-January to clear the way for the project it’s been trying to get built for about three and half decades.However, the story argues that two major and related hurdles still stand in the way of the currently projected $8 billion dam.First, there’s the opposition by local area First Nations and it’s widely anticipated they will file a legal challenge to the flooding of their traditional Peace Valley territories southwest of Fort St. John.- Advertisement -The Globe claims Chief Roland Willson of the West Moberly First Nations has his legal team working on separate judicial review applications for the environmental certificate issued by the federal and provincial governments.Chief Willson says work on the project won’t happen on his community lands and the newspaper quotes him as saying, “We don’t have the human or financial capacity to deal with Site C. We’re not going to be able process their applications. They are going to have to wait.”Chief Willson adds, “And if they start without their permits, the only recourse is to file an injunction.”Advertisement

Share Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest Ever since my junior high days I have been a runner. I joined the track team because it seemed like the thing to do at the time. Since then, I have never stopped running.I cannot say how many of my stories have been mentally crafted during a late night run on back country roads guided by moonlight and accompanied by the crickets and rustling corn leaves in the lonely rural farm fields around me. My running keeps me in reasonable shape (even during farm meeting/banquet season) and helps keep me in tune with the seasons and agriculture around me — whether it is watching planting progress, smelling the corn pollinating, looking on as combines roll through the fields, or running through the frozen, snow-covered landscape in winter. Running also helps me organize my thoughts, plan my day and (believe it or not) relax for a bit.And, although I do not really follow competitive running all that closely, I really have admiration for those who excel at distance running and the unbelievable dedication and hard work required for success. Combine that with my love of watching the Olympics and I could not help but be a bit star-struck when I got the chance to sit down and talk with Clayton Murphy.The 21-year-old Darke County native and University of Akron student is competing in the Rio Olympics this month as a member of the U.S.A. Track & Field Team in the 800-meter run. He is also sponsored by Nike and will be competing internationally in middle distance races well beyond the Olympics.He won the 800 at the Olympic Trials on July 4.“I don’t think I expected to be first, but the goal was to be in the top three to qualify,” he said. “There are not really many words to express that initial feeling when you first realize you’re an Olympian. It was pretty overwhelming.”Of course, along with the information for the story, I couldn’t help but talk about running with Clayton. I was really curious about his training regimen.“I’ll run every day for two weeks and take a day off. I typically get up at 7 and eat a big breakfast and workout at 9 starting with a warm up of a couple of miles. After that I’ll do repeats on the track then cool down for a couple of miles. I do some core stretching too and a lot of bodyweight strength training with push-ups, pull-ups and other things,” he said. “My long runs are 10 miles to work on endurance and maintain a high level of fitness. I do four miles for my short runs. I’ll run twice a day a couple of times a week.”So what does an Olympian eat?“I try to eat three good meals a day: eggs and toast for breakfast, a lunchmeat sandwich for lunch, and maybe meat and pasta for dinner. I love milk, too. I don’t drink quite as much now but I used to drink a couple of gallons a week,” Murphy said. “I really work at eating right and taking care of myself.”But he wouldn’t be a college student without some dietary vices.“I’ll drink a soda every now and then. I’ll eat some Oreos — double stuff — before bed sometimes and splurge,” he said. “I also really like to eat vanilla wafers, Lucky Charms and ice cream. I like chocolate chip cookie dough the best, but if it is ice cream I’ll eat it.”And — a little known fact — though he loves Oreos and milk, he does not enjoy dipping the cookies in the milk. He drinks it separately.One unfortunate circumstance of Clayton’s incredible success is that he will be missing the late-August Great Darke County Fair, an act considered almost treasonous in some local circles.“This will be the second year in row that I have missed the county fair. I’ll miss the shows and the fair food (sugar waffles) at the Great Darke County Fair,” he said. “These are the only two years I have missed it since I can remember.”Despite his absence at the fair, Clayton has gotten tremendous support from his home community.“Darke County now has a personal connection to the Olympics and it is cool to have that,” he said. “Everyone has been so supportive.”While my running accomplishments do not really have that many similarities to Clayton’s, I do plan on drinking more milk, enjoying Lucky Charms and ice cream more regularly and, on my next trip to the Darke County Fair, I will run (or at least jog) to the sugar waffle booth. We can’t all be Olympians, but that won’t stop me from eating like one.
Pennsylvania and Washington, two of several states that have struggled with wage-setting rules for stimulus-funded weatherization work, appear ready to finally start weatherizing.At issue, once again, were state program administrators’ difficulties reckoning with the Davis-Bacon Act. Imposed on weatherization programs for the first time, Davis-Bacon requires that weatherization workers be paid prevailing wage rates. Setting those rates accurately, however, often has meant determining prevailing wages on a county-by-county basis, which can be an unusually time-consuming process. A recent story in the Philadelphia Inquirer, for example, cited hourly rates as low as $10 (in Pennsylvania’s Delaware County) and as high as $25 (in Philadelphia and Bucks counties). Most weatherization agencies in the state are now ready to start weatherizing, although the wage-setting process has put them several weeks behind schedule.The weatherization deadlineThat delay has created anxiety among some agency administrators, mainly because they have a limited amount of time to meet weatherization goals they agreed to with the Department of Energy earlier in the year. About half the $5 billion in stimulus funds has been allocated to states, but to qualify for the second allotment of federal funds, the agencies must meet their weatherization goals by fall of 2010.“If we don’t meet our goals by September 30, we don’t get the second half of the stimulus money,” Walter Yakabosky, director of training for the Energy Coordinating Agency, in Philadelphia, told the Inquirer. “So everybody is getting a little crazy. We would have liked to have started training earlier.”Pennsylvania expects to weatherize about 29,000 homes and create 940 jobs over the course of the entire stimulus-funded program.The frustrations of wage-rule researchSimilarly hectic scenarios have played out at agencies in Arizona, Indiana, Nevada, Idaho, and Michigan.Confusion over how to mesh Davis-Bacon requirements, state wage rules, and prevailing-wage data put weatherization administrators in Washington state behind schedule as well. As a recent story in the Olympian pointed out, the results of a county-by-county wage survey, which was handled by the U.S. Department of Labor, weren’t completed until September 1. Further guidance from the state’s Department of Labor and Industries was required to come up with definitive wage-setting rules.If they can get back on schedule, the state’s weatherization agencies will spend about 60 million stimulus dollars over the next couple years, creating an estimated 250 jobs and weatherizing almost 7,000 homes. Statewide, a little more than 100 homes have been weatherized using stimulus funds since October 1, the Olympian notes. But the original target for that date was 935 homes, so Washington’s weatherizing teams have their work cut out for them.
An unbeatable 3-0 lead in hand, India would now aim for a cleansweep while trying out new players when they take on a demoralised West Indies in the inconsequential fourth game of their five-match one-day international series, on Monday.Led by Suresh Raina, the second-string Indian team has given a good account of itself dominating the struggling Caribbean side, which has been weakened further by the absence of big-hitting Chris Gayle and reliable performers such as Dwayne Bravo.In fact, the series has done a world of good to young Indian players such as Rohit Sharma, Virat Kohli and Raina himself.They have proved themselves as fighters when faced with tense situations, prompting coach Duncan Fletcher to state that the given the pool of talent, his wards are set to dominate world cricket for another decade or so.”It is due to the amount of talent India have. Indian cricket is in a very, very healthy state presently,” stated Fletcher after India clinched the series with a three-wicket win yesterday.Right-handed batsman Manoj Tiwary might get a look in after Raina hinted that reserve players are likely to be fielded for the remaining two matches. But bowling would certainly be an area of concern for the Indians.Without the ever-reliable Zaheer Khan, who won’t be available even for the Test series due to injury, the pacers led by Munaf Patel have struggled as was evident from the way West Indian number nine Andre Russell took them to the cleaners on Saturday.advertisement- With PTI inputs
