World’s First Algae Bioreactor Facade Nears CompletionSave this articleSaveWorld’s First Algae Bioreactor Facade Nears Completion CopyBIQ – the world’s first algae powered building – is set to be completed in Germany later this month. Built for the International Building Exhibition (IBA) in Hamburg, this zero-carbon apartment complex will sport a bright green facade-cum-algae farm, while its interior proposes a radical new theory on how we will live in the near future.More about BIQ after the break… At about the same size as bacteria, microalgae can produce more biofuel per hectare than alternative crops. This joint venture between Splitterwerk Architects, ARUP, Colt International and Strategic Science Consult marks the first time algae-reactors have been fully integrated into the fabric of a building.Save this picture!BIQ via GOODOn the south-east and south-west facades, there is a second skin of hollow glass panels containing micro-algae farms. Here, the algae floats around basking in the sunlight which hits the structure, while being fed on a diet of carbon dioxide and nutrients by a network of pipes. Photosynthesizing and growing, the algae-pulp can then be periodically harvested and fermented in an external biogas plant to generate energy. Aside from producing energy and performing the usual job of heat and sound insulation, the facade is characterized by other valuable traits. Heat from excess sunlight, not needed by the algae, is collected and can be stored in brine-filled boreholes, to be used for space and water heating. In addition, the algae provides adaptive shading throughout the year; the more intense the sunlight gets, the more algae grows inside the facade and the more shade is provided. Save this picture!BIQ via GOODAlso proposed by BIQ is a new model of living, which is based on the idea that the distinction between workplace and home is ever thinning, making traditional rigid apartment layouts somewhat obstructive. Two of the building’s fifteen apartments have no separate rooms, instead they are large versatile spaces, which the resident can configure “on demand” to something which suits them. Algae is quickly becoming a new buzzword in the fields of bio-architecture and energy production. As the likes of BP and Exxon put their money behind algae-fuel projects, algae-facades are increasingly being seen as a solution to the problem of sustainably powering buildings. Aside from being able to produce biomass and hydrogen, they can also be used to detect pollution and absorb carbon dioxide while releasing oxygen. Several conceptual projects have been proposed by architects, such as a plan to re-skin Chicago’s Marina Towers with algae or ARUP’s inclusion of algae-pods in their vision of the ‘Skyscraper of 2050’.via Good, IBA Hamburg Image gallerySee allShow lessRooms / Ando CorporationSelected ProjectsLandfill Reclaimation: Fresh Kills Park Develops as a Natural Coastal Buffer and Par…Architecture News Share Save this picture!BIQ via GOODWritten by Nicky RackardMarch 04, 2013 Share ArchDaily World’s First Algae Bioreactor Facade Nears Completion CopyAbout this authorNicky RackardAuthorFollow#TagsNewsArchitecture NewsResidential ArchitectureHousingApartmentsSustainableBiotechnologyHamburgBuilding Technology and MaterialsFacadeArupSPLITTERWERKGermanyCite: Nicky Rackard. “World’s First Algae Bioreactor Facade Nears Completion” 04 Mar 2013.

On Feb. 14, Valentine’s Day in the U.S., the world once again witnessed a president with no heart. One might even argue with no brain.If this was Oz, it would be entertaining.But it’s the belly of the imperialist beast, so when President Donald Trump announces any edict, it is ominous.The workers and oppressed here and around the world are suffering. Migrants are agonizing at the southern border of the U.S. Yet on Feb. 14 Trump — calling up his signature campaign issue — declared that the national emergency that needed the most attention and funding was — the Wall at the southern border.Sarah Sanders, Trump’s press secretary, stated the emergency was needed “to ensure we stop the national security and humanitarian crisis at the border.”More, more, more money and lies for the WallAt the Valentine’s Day press conference, Trump, being his usual demagogic self, used racism and lies as arguments for more money and for the “emergency.”Making white-supremacist slurs that undocumented workers in the U.S. are all gang members, rapists and killers, Trump invited the “Angel Moms” to the event to prove his lies. These are mothers whose children were allegedly killed by migrants. Everyone mourns the loss of a child. But when tragedies are weaponized and used as political pawns, they should be opposed. One of the “Angel Moms,” Maureen Maloney from Massachusetts, lost her son in a motorcycle accident when he collided with a car driven by an undocumented worker. This is certainly no argument for racist pandering.Congress has already approved a spending package of $1.38 billion for the Wall. However, this massive amount is short of the $5.7 billion that Trump demands. Buoyed by his right-wing base, egged on by his reactionary friends on Fox News, Trump is determined to undermine even his own capitalist government to get his way.By declaring a national emergency on the border, he aims to use executive action to put together $8 billion to build his Wall.Both parties built the WallIn a joint statement, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer stated, “Declaring a national emergency would be a lawless act, a gross abuse of the power of the presidency and a desperate attempt to distract from the fact that President Trump broke his core promise to have Mexico pay for his wall.” (NBC News, Feb. 14)This is what some liberals call the “Resistance” today!What if Trump had gotten Mexico to pay for the Wall? Would that have made the Democrats happy? But despite the divisions between Trump and the Democrats — and now even some Republicans — both parties are responsible for the modern war on migrants. Both parties have paid for the militarized Wall that already exists.The American Friends Service Committee has pointed out: “[P]olicies under every administration … have systematically militarized southern border communities, criminalizing millions of immigrants and creating repressive conditions from California to Texas. … Many of these efforts have been couched in the language of war,” such as “the war on drugs … the war on crime … and the war on terror.” (tinyurl.com/yyj7yl4c)Pedro Rios, director of the AFSC’s U.S.-Mexico Border Program in San Diego, emphasizes that “today U.S. Customs and Border Protection, which includes the Border Patrol, is the largest law enforcement agency in the country.” Rios elaborates, “They use military-style enforcement tactics, equipment, and strategies to ‘control’ the border, including drone planes, military helicopters and the coordination of local law enforcement and federal forces that embolden vigilante groups.”Humanitarian crisis at the WallClearly, the real crisis at the border is a humanitarian one that both parties created and that Trump has accelerated.Families have been teargassed; legitimate asylum seekers have been locked up. Families have been torn apart, placed in cages and in detention centers that are cold and unbearable. Children have died in custody — alone and afraid.It is still not known how many children have actually been taken from their parents and placed in foster care. Officials say that many of these children will never be returned to their parents, many of whom have already been deported.Despite the current posturing by Democrats, it was under the Democratic administration of President Barack Obama that more immigrants were deported than ever before or since in U.S. history.Currently, liberals are up in arms about Trump’s declaration of a national emergency, worried about the alarming scope of his powers and violations of the U.S. constitution.Yet the people of the border in south Texas, primarily Mexicans, live in an area that has been transformed, according to the National Network for Immigrant Rights, “to a zone of permanent vigilance, enforcement and violence. … [I]t has become an imagined war zone … where the U.S. Constitution has little to no value.” (tinyurl.com/y6nb24or)Where is the concern for the constitutional rights of the Rio Grande Valley residents of south Texas? Probably in the same place where Democrats talk about the rights of Black and Brown youth gunned down by racist police. Nowhere.End the war on migrants, end all warsToday, the Mexico/U.S. border in south Texas is the most militarized region in the country — because despite their bickering, both parties are united in defending the capitalist system.According to the National Priorities Project for 2015: “[M]ilitary spending is projected to account for 54 percent of all federal discretionary spending, a total of $598.5 billion.” (tinyurl.com/pr7w8ml)These billions should be spent on the people, on social services, not for the Wall or for wars — certainly not for a war on Venezuela. In a statement Senator Schumer released on “the crisis in Venezuela,” he repeatedly lied to justify U.S. intervention and to rally other countries to the attack, while claiming that this was to support the Venezuelan people “in their efforts to restore democracy.” (tinyurl.com/yxnxd2k7) Yet the administration of President Maduro is a democratically elected government that, if allowed to live in peace, would continue to create conditions that prevent migration.Not one more cent should be spent on the Wall.Democratic party allies were scheduled to rally nationally Feb. 18 under the call “No Racist Wall, No Power Grab.” They have finally been moved to call it a racist wall.Who will actually stop the Wall and the wars? The movement of the workers and oppressed must fight to dismantle the current militarized Wall and to end the war on migrants and all wars.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare this

Hoosier Ag Today meteorologist Ryan Martin says a sustained drying out period is not likely.“We picked up two solid rain hits over the northern half of the state that were good for about an inch to two inches apiece. So we’ve got soil saturation levels near their peak over the northern half, a couple of inches there, and we still picked up anywhere from half to one and a half to two inches down in the southern part of the state too. We’re pretty saturated north to south and really could do with a week to nine days of dry weather helping us out. Unfortunately I don’t think we’re going to get it.”But for most of the crops that are in the ground Martin says the excess rain for now shouldn’t be posing a problem.“Now I may have some agronomists that call me up and want to argue with me on that. I have talked with some folks who are saying my beans are a little yellow, and granted, I know they are. The thing is we had corn in this exact same scenario over a good chunk of the state about 2-3 weeks ago, so I don’t think this is a major concern. Yes, it’s wet, the profile is full of water but you’ve got to go with the old adage that rain makes grain. As long as we don’t come in here and steam the bean plants with heat, which I don’t think we will, you’ve got to look at this moisture in the grand scheme of things as being positive. I’d much rather have a little bit too much water than not enough.”USDA says there is still 11 percent of the Indiana soybean crop left to plant. Will those farmers be playing the prevented plant card before long?“I definitely think so,” Martin said, and he looks toward rain patterns to make that assessment. Those patterns indicate the possibility of no more planting opportunities until near the end of the month.” Will the Indiana Rain Make Grain?

NEXT Tuesday promises to be an historic day for Limerick, with the scheduled opening of the €660 million tunnel.Work commenced four years ago. However, while Tuesday is pencilled in for the big day, official confirmation will not be forthcoming until the weekend.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up Agencies involved in the construction and running of the PPP scheme are this week holding final talks on the operation of the structure, which is expected to ease traffic through the city to the tune of 20,000 vehicles a day.Tom King, general manager of Direct Route, told the Limerick Post that An Taoiseach Brian Cowen is due to cut the ribbon at the opening ceremony.“The provisional date is Tuesday, July 27 for the opening and the Taoiseach is free that day to cut the ribbon”. He said that there was still due process to go through with the NRA, before the opening date was confirmed and that meetings are being held throughout this week.The tunnel is the first to comply with legislation under the new European Tunnel Safety Directive.“We still don’t have a definite green light, but there is no hold-up per se. All documents and safety inspections, etc, have to be signed off by the NRA and there are some consultations to go through.“We are confident everything is in place to open next week. This is the culmination of four years work. It has been hugely successful and we have ticked all the boxes”.When asked who was pencilled in as the first unofficial vehicle to travel through the Tunnel, Mr. King quipped: “I don’t care who is first as long as they pay their €1.80 toll!” Twitter NewsLocal NewsLong road leads to tunnel openingBy admin – July 22, 2010 638 Advertisement Print WhatsApp Email Facebook Linkedin Previous articleWillie in WonderlandNext articleSteamboat Quay a crime haven admin
