The L-Stack House responds to a site anomaly set within a dense inner-city neighborhood near a city park. The 10,000 sqf trapezoid-shaped lot is traversed diagonally by a dry-bed creek. The urban grid and the modest scale of existing houses in the neighborhood is enhanced through a strategy of bridging and stacking of forms. Save this picture!© Timothy HursleyIn effect a new order is superimposed upon a in-fill tract of land that has been undeveloped since the 19th century origins of the city of Fayetteville. The resulting scheme is an ‘L’ configuration that subdivides the interior program and the site into private and public entities. A carefully positioned glass-enclosed stairway hinges together the two 18 -foot wide boxes that form the house structure.Save this picture!© Timothy HursleyAt the interior, the ground floor is organized as a linear open plan with connecting terraces along and adjacent to the creek. Throughout the house, windows and skylights are arranged to provide controlled views, illumination, a sense of privacy, and opportunities to observe the dynamic nature of the creek. The stairway penetrates the underbelly of the second floor. Here private spaces are more discreet and cellular, however, all spaces open onto a hall that serves as a common family space for reading, office work, or watching television. Primary materials at the interior include teak floors, wenge, walnut, and white oak millwork, and painted wood plank accent walls. Large steel box windows provide spaces for sitting or sleeping.

The wood screen is disengaged from a rubber-clad substrate and is stacked and screwed on the flat creating a horizontal louvered effect at the long walls. The cladding system provides for 50% transparency and perceptually provides the walls with a phenomenal translucency. End walls are either black metal clad or glass storefronts.Save this picture!© Timothy HursleyProject gallerySee allShow lessArchDaily 2010 Building of the Year Award: The WinnersArticlesAD Round Up: Refurbishment Part VArticles Share L-Stack House / Marlon Blackwell Architect CopyAbout this officeMarlon Blackwell ArchitectsOfficeFollowProductsWoodGlass#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesDabasFayettevilleHouses3D ModelingUnited StatesPublished on February 16, 2011Cite: “L-Stack House / Marlon Blackwell Architect” 16 Feb 2011.

Demand Will Not Help 2014 Crop PricesChris HurtTypically when US corn prices fall due to a large crop, world buyers step in to buy US corn at these lower prices. According to Purdue Ag Economist Dr. Chris Hurt, that may not happen with the 2014 crop, “Exports have not been as strong for the new crop as we have seen for the past few years.” He told HAT China has a surplus of corn and may not buy as much from the world market as they have in the past few years. In addition, the world supply of corn is good. “So this is keeping the USDA conservative in their export projections,” said Hurt.Hurt says the ethanol industry is also not likely to step in and increase demand for corn. He said ethanol profit margins are already good and the caps imposed by the RFS are limiting how much ethanol can be produced. “Bottom line, lower prices do not buy us much more ethanol use,” Hurt said. Even the livestock sector is not likely to increase their demand for corn. “The PED virus is constraining expansion in the hog industry,” Hurt stated. “The poultry industry is having trouble with expansion and the cattle industry just takes a long time to rebuild.” He added that cattle in feedlot numbers will be down in 2015.Hurt predicts that demand for US corn will increase, but slowly, over the next 2 or 3 growing seasons, “We will see more livestock production around the world and more grain processing but over time.” He said from now on we will be in recovery mode with demand slowly moving up during the 2015 and 2016 growing season. This assumes, however, that we will have trend line yields for the 2015 and 2016 crops.

SHARE Facebook Twitter The Need for Speed With Seed SHARE Facebook Twitter By Gary Truitt – Apr 12, 2020 The Need for Speed With SeedAfter planting delays the past 2 years, growers are anxious to get seeds in the ground as quickly as possible which has sparked interest in high speed planters.In an effort to get planting done in a shorter period of time, farmers are looking to new technology to increase the speed of planting.“We are able put seed in the ground at 14 mph to 15 mph and have the same accuracy as we did at 5 mph,” according to Brenton Wolf with Bane Welker Equipment.He stated that several new planter models have been redesigned to plant faster.Machinery Pete told HAT that there is a lot of farmer interest in these high speed units.“There is really a lot of interest in that high speed stuff. There is a lot of buzz about the new John Deere planter that is designed to work with older tractors.”He added he is seeing a lot more interest by farmers in general about planters.Kinze has introduced a new high speed planter but has also introduced a retrofit kit that will allow growers to upgrade their current planter to a higher speed. Eric Broadbent with Kinze says this is an option many growers are considering, especially in these financially challenging times.“Guys don’t want to upgrade from a 12 row planter to a 16 planter or even larger,” he said. “It is a whole operation decision and expense. Yet, they want to get more acres planted quicker so their alternative is to go faster.”Wolf says farmers have always tinkered with their planters, but this year it is all about making them faster.“There is a ton of things we can do to push the needle along and gain speed.” Home Indiana Agriculture News The Need for Speed With Seed Previous articleCOVID-19 Sends Agriculture Prices PlummetingNext articleCommentary: Don’t Cry Over Dumped Milk Gary Truitt

So perhaps it is not surprising that the two major political parties are equally divided on proposed legislation to roll back what the Obama Administration sees as one of its greatest achievements, the Dodd-Frank Act of 2010.House Financial Services Committee Chairman Jeb Hensarling (R-Texas) introduced H.R. 5983, commonly known as the Financial CHOICE Act (Creating Hope and Opportunity for Investors, Consumers and Entrepreneurs) in June 2016, on the eve of Dodd-Frank’s sixth birthday, as an alternative to the highly controversial Wall Street Reform legislation. Among the CHOICE Act’s key proposals are giving banks the option for relief from certain regulations if they meet a certain capital threshold; eliminating the government’s power to designate firms as “systemically important”; and wholesale reforms to the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau that include removing the Bureau’s director and replacing him with a five-member bipartisan commission.The Republicans on the House Financial Services Committee tout the CHOICE Act as promoting “growth for all, bailouts for none.”“If we want strong economic growth and more freedom, we must empower Americans, not Washington bureaucrats. We must offer all Americans greater opportunities to raise their standard of living and achieve financial independence. In a phrase, we need economic growth for all and bank bailouts for none. This is the foundation of the Republican plan to reignite growth by replacing Dodd-Frank with real reforms that work,” Hensarling said.In the last few months, Democrats on the House Financial Services Committee have derided the proposal, repeatedly referring to it as the “Wrong CHOICE Act.”[youtube http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uiSDsQ4cTGY]Earlier this week in a Committee markup, the CHOICE Act passed by a 30-26 voice vote almost completely among party lines. Every Democrat on the Committee who voted on the CHOICE Act (Rep. Terri Sewell, D-Alabama, was the only Democrat who did not vote) voted against it. According to a report from the Wall Street Journal, Democrats were steadfastly unwilling to compromise their position, offering not one single amendment to the proposal during the markup.“Mr. Chairman, this bill is so bad that it simply cannot be fixed. This markup is not a serious attempt to move thoughtful legislation, evidenced by the fact that we only had one hearing on one portion of the bill. It’s clear that this is a rushed, partisan messaging tool, though why anyone would want to push legislation to deregulate Wall Street at a time like this is beyond me,” Committee Ranking Member Maxine Waters (D-California) said during the markup. “So let’s not waste any more time on this. Democrats will not offer any amendments, and we move to dispense with this political theater.”Every Committee Republican who voted (three did not vote), with one exception, voted in favor of the CHOICE Act. The lone Committee Republican who voted against it in the markup was Bruce Poliquin (D-Maine). Poliquin’s office did not immediately respond to a request for comment on his vote.The Wall Street Journal reported that the CHOICE Act is likely to pass in a full House vote, but is not expected to gain traction in the Senate. Even if it does, President Obama has vowed to veto any attempt to roll back Dodd-Frank, which his Administration views as one of its greatest triumphs.
