Fundamental to the project was the need to create a community whilst supporting the individual; therefore, the courtyard is the meeting point and entry to each building. It refers to traditional college accommodation where students interact from private spaces to the common.Save this picture!planShared spaces and vertical circulation are located at the centre of each building encouraging interaction. The main communal spaces are double storey volumes playing an important role in connecting all levels and defining the architectural composition. Each wing of the building has a cohort of 30 studios per level. Studios contain a kitchenette, ensuite and living/sleeping space. At 20m2 the studio module was refined to create a sense of spaciousness, incorporating extensive operable floor to ceiling windows and exposed ceilings 2.7 metres in height, with services contained at central risers.

Higher Ground Initiates Hand Pumps, Sanitations in Arthington

first_imgA Liberian-based NGO, Higher Ground International (HGI), working to improve rural communities, has begun the construction of hand pump and sanitation facilities in Arthington, Lower Montserrado County.In an exclusive interview with the Daily Observer on Wednesday, May 21 in Arthington, the founder and chief executive officer of HGI, Madam Henrietta White Holder said that the initiative is meant to restore dignity in the lives of rural community residents.“The projects in Arthington are intended to improve the living conditions of the residents after being affected by the civil crisis in Liberia. This is in fulfillment of a dream that we conceived few years ago while in the United States to come back and help our fellow citizens,” she explained.She said that about 10 communities in Arthington that are lacking safe drinking water and sanitation are expected to benefit.“At the moment, we have constructed hand pumps and toilets in three of the communities and with more funding we intend to expand,” she further said.Madam Holder disclosed that, they are expected to embark on an agricultural program in Arthington, upon the completion of the hand pump and sanitation projects.“We have a 150 acres of land earmarked for crop production to create economic opportunities for many residents in the communities. Farmers will be supported in growing crop to raise income,” she said.She said the agricultural project will initially target more than 100 farmers.According to her the program will seek to create processing facility for crop like cassava, adding that the processing house has already been constructed.Madam Holder, however, mentioned transportation difficulties and funding as some challenges confronting their developmental initiatives.Meanwhile, the HGI founder told our reporter that they intend to launch their developmental activities in Arthington this week.She said the program is expected to bring together government officials and some members of political parties.According to her Peace Ambassador George Weah is expected to launch the program.At the same time, residents of Arthington have described the initiative of HGI as a welcoming development.The Artington residents said that that for a very long time, they have lacked safe drinking water and sanitation.The City Mayor of Arthington, Genius White, who also added his impression on the HGI’ initiatives said that the development was timely.“The residents of our city do not have access to safe drinking water. Many times, we drink from the creek which is not safe. Therefore, we are very thankful for the undertaken of the HGI,” he told this paper in his office on Wednesday.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

School lunch prep time

first_imgShare Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest By Shelly Detwiler, berry farmer and dieticianSchool is right around the corner and if you ask any kid, “What’s your favorite about school?” The most likely answer is recess with a close second as lunch. Paul’s school lunch memory features Aunt Fern behind the counter offering extra helpings of sandwiches and other main dish entrees. On the other hand, hamburger gravy was my worst nightmare in the Plain City Elementary cafeteria.The National School Lunch Program (NSLP) is a federally assisted meal program operating in public and nonprofit private schools and residential child care institutions. It provides nutritionally balanced, low-cost or no-cost lunches to children each school day. The NSLP was established under the Richard B. Russell National School Lunch Act, signed into law by President Harry Truman in 1946.USDA Food and Nutrition Services states in 2018 schools served over 4.8 billion lunches to children nationwide. Daily requirements include: 1 cup milk 1% or less fat; 1 to 2 ounces grains, half being whole grains; 1 to 2 ounces meat or meat alternative; ¾ to 1 cup veggies; and ½ to 1 cup fruit. The requirements gradually reduce sodium to less than 640 to 740mg/day in the next 10 years.In 2013 flavored milk was eliminated from the school lunch program in an effort to reduce added sugars. Dairy industry people believe that the consumption of milk went down 1.1 million half-pints within the first 2 years. The School Milk Nutrition act of 2017 tried to help reverse this decline in consumption by marketing new attractive milk containers, improved tedious paperwork and allowed increased varieties of milk for the kids.Menus and online payment have made it easier for kids and parents to pick and choose what days they will eat school lunch. Of course, there are always some days that don’t meet with kid’s approval. My kids were required to make their own lunches on days of unapproved school lunch days. More than likely it consisted of either leftovers or PBJ sandwiches, baby carrots and a piece of fruit. Much more creative lunch ideas can be found on Pinterest and other mom websites today. Ideas may include twists on wraps, pitas and muffins as well as lots of things to dip. Kids love to dip! Going rogue on your lunch to work and school try using the chart below and making homemade Lunchables. These are especially perfect for kids who are grazers.This year as school is about to start, think outside the box for packed lunches. These are also great ideas for the peeps who head to work outside the home. The sky is the limit!
