Residents of urban housing complexes can’t choose their neighbors. This project is an attempt to provide both connection and appropriate distance between the residents of a property that includes condos with long-term owners as well as rental units occupied by temporary tenants.Save this picture!© Seiichi OhsawaSave this picture!SectionSave this picture!© Seiichi OhsawaEach unit is comprised of interlinked boxy rooms. These units are strung together in a line with a passage-like “marginal courtyard” between each pair of volumes functioning to mediate between residents with different values and lifestyles. In addition, a series of small boxes are attached to each of the large boxes. The small boxes serve as bay windows, benches, counters, balconies, and small rooms, bringing southern light from the courtyards deep into every room. Offsetting the height and direction of these openings prevents neighbors from seeing into one another’s living spaces.Save this picture!© Seiichi OhsawaOn the other hand, residents share the marginal courtyards. In addition, the design makes use of the elevation differential on the lot to create different levels in the architecture. This allows for the free linkage of spaces, with the two rental units interlocking three-dimensionally and both offering living spaces on the ground level, second floor, and south side. The boxes are tonally divided so that each time a resident moves from one box to another they cross from a white space into a grey one, creating a sensation of depth as they move between settings.Save this picture!© Seiichi OhsawaThe boxes that make up urban living spaces tend to have standardized sizes and functions as well as uniform living spaces. However, altering the arrangement and connections between these boxes allows them to be responsive to the scale of the streetscape as well as the physical scale of their residents, as well as to adapt to a range of design and site conditions. This project thus presents a potential solution to the need for diverse living spaces, weaving together varied gathering points and linkages to reflect the urban space it is part of.  Save this picture!© Seiichi OhsawaProject gallerySee allShow lessVH R-10 G House / Architecture-Infrastructure-ResearchSelected ProjectsHouse in Tajiri 2 / Kazunori Fujimoto Architect & AssociatesSelected Projects Share Year:  Save this picture!© Seiichi Ohsawa+ 17Curated by María Francisca González Share CopyHouses•Japan Co-Connect House / Hugo Kohno Architect Associates ArchDaily ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOr Clipboard Japan Architects: Hugo Kohno Architect Associates Area Area of this architecture project Area:  219 m² Year Completion year of this architecture project 2019 ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOr Clipboard Houses Co-Connect House / Hugo Kohno Architect AssociatesSave this projectSaveCo-Connect House / Hugo Kohno Architect Associateslast_img read more

Football mentor has hands full during virus lockdown

first_imgShare on: WhatsApp Wayne Richardson (left) pictured with Manchester United’s Odion IghaloLondon, United Kingdom | AFP |  Fitness coach and mentor Wayne Richardson has had his hands full dealing with footballers’ mental health issues in a period of unprecedented uncertainty during the coronavirus lockdown.Richardson and his staff have spoken to about 150 players, from professionals all the way down to the grassroots during football’s hiatus.Players have reported a number of issues, from being unable to play PlayStation with their friends to a lack of training facilities at home, but there is a common thread.“Commonplace from grassroots, academy, scholar to first-team, players are finding it boring,” he told AFP by phone from his home in Manchester in northern England.“‘I cannot go to my girlfriend’s, I cannot drive here or there, go to the shop.’ We have to try and keep that in check and tell them it won’t last forever.”Richardson set up his company, Richardson Sport, with Emma Hughes in 2010. His team including fitness coaches, nutritionists, psychologists and sports mentors.Richardson, whose recent clients include Manchester United player Odion Ighalo, says uncertainty is rife among players, although some are now preparing for a return to action.“We work on some areas we don’t usually spend a lot of time on, listening to their worries,” he said.“Some don’t know if they will be asked to sign a new contract and we focus on ‘are there other options for you like another career, further education?’”– Mental health –The Professional Footballers’ Association released figures earlier this month from a survey carried out during the pandemic that showed more than a fifth of current and former players had reported being depressed or had considered self-harm.Richardson himself experienced a profoundly upsetting episode in 2006.He had spent hours talking to a footballer whose girlfriend had told him she was pregnant by somebody else. Richardson advised the player to take a paternity test.“I received a text message off one of the guys (friend of the footballer) ‘Wayne, he won’t be in tomorrow’,” said Richardson.“I will never forget this part — ‘x has been found hanged’. It just shows you don’t know what is going on behind the scenes.” Richardson said players also needed practical help.“They might have been offered new contracts and then got injured and the coach might have said unfortunately ‘we don’t know whether we can keep you on’,” he said.“That creates doubt for that player firstly in getting himself fit and what will happen next.”Richardson said one of the players he has talked to had plans to go to Scotland but the move hit trouble because two of the clubs who were interested had put their players on the government’s furlough scheme.Richardson, who previously worked in projects to tackle gang crime, grew up in the tough Manchester inner-city neighbourhood of Moss Side — plagued by high unemployment and drug problems.He overcame his family’s scepticism that he would have a career in football and has worked with a number of high-profile clubs including Manchester City and Leeds United.Richardson said having a career observing footballers up close had shown him that they have to deal with the same issues as everybody else“The amount of money they are being paid, everyone will always look at the negative side of football,” he said.“No matter what, they are all human beings, they still eat and go to the toilet and go through other daily routines we do.“However, in the public’s eyes they are in a privileged position.”Despite all the help he can offer, Richardson is aware of the stark reality that this can only go so far.Speaking about the players he helps, he said: “He will shake your hand or hug you when he leaves but you can’t control their life.“Sometimes it is overwhelming dealing with everything and you can’t save the whole world.”last_img read more

RB Schools to Get More Funding

first_imgBy John BurtonRED BANK – An almost 13 percent increase in state education funding for the 2013-14 school year for the Red Bank school district “will help us move forward,” Superintendent Laura Morana said.According to the state Department of Education (DOE), the district can anticipate getting a 12.9 percent increase, amounting to $339,218. It is the largest increase among districts in the Two River area.Atlantic Highlands will receive an additional $2,937 in state money for a 2 percent increase. Henry Hudson Regional will get an additional $3,330 for a 0.4 percent increase. Highlands will get a 1.3 percent increase or $8,347 while the Oceanport district will receive an additional $3,577 for a 0.8 percent increase for the coming school year.Most area districts’ funding is projected to remain flat. The area districts that are expected to receive the same amount of aid for 2013-14 as they did in 2012-13 are: Colts Neck, Fair Haven, Holmdel, Little Silver, Middletown, Monmouth Beach, Red Bank Regional, Rumson, Rumson-Fair Haven Regional and Shrewsbury.“I wish I could say the money was some gift for education improvement purposes or tax relief,” Red Bank Board of Education President Ben Forest said. “However, the commissioner [of education Chris Cerf] is acting on a basis of need.“Unfortunately, we’re going to be covering increasing costs and demands in our district,” Forest said.DOE spokesperson Barbara Morgan said state education officials relied on a formula, looking at what districts needed to provide a thorough and efficient education as prescribed by state standards, and at the local district’s ability to pay its fair share of it. When there was a gap between the two, state aid will allow those districts to reach what is called in education parlance the adequacy budget, according to Morgan.“That is what the state is providing,” through aid, she said.The Red Bank school district has seen an enrollment increase during the last couple of years, with this year and next seeing a 5 percent jump districtwide, according to Morana.“We’ll continue to see steady growth over the next five years,” the superintendent said.There are 13 districts across the state that have seen significant enrollment jumps and have been getting more state aid to help them address it, including Red Bank. The district also has been getting additional state money to cover expansion of its full-day pre-K program.But, Morana said, the district has to hire some additional teachers and faces rising costs for employee health insurance premiums, among other increases in spending.“There is a laundry list of items that we are now going to be able to begin addressing,” with the increased aid, she said.The additional aid also is “due to the fact that we’ve been underfunded for years and years,” Morana said.She was appreciative that Gov. Chris Christie and the commissioner are addressing what she sees as a shortfall.Without this and the other aid increases, the district would have faced tough choices for the enrollment jumps, including possibly expanding classroom size from its current 21-23 students to as many as 30 per class. “That would not have been a good decision. I could not in good conscience make a recommendation for that,” Morana said.The district will not be keeping all of the more than $300,000 additional aid, however. As required by the state, the district will allocate about a third of it to the Red Bank Charter School, Morana said.The district is slated to provide the charter school with $1.7 million for the 2013-14 school year, based on the state formula, according to the superintendent.last_img read more

Outlook for ’06 uncertain

Please try again.subscribeCongratulations! You’re all set! I’ve never been one for market predictions, and I stand firm that personal-finance journalists have no business making them. Nobody can say for sure whether stocks are going up or down next year or where interest rates are headed. Still, many of my colleagues persist in this useless exercise even if their results are no better than flipping a coin. But after 15 years of writing this column, I do have a high degree of confidence that a number of things will happen in 2006 (some already are). These are my “predictions” – I prefer to call them expectations – for the new year: -Energy stocks, real estate and emerging markets all soared at various times in 2005. I can’t tell you what the “hot” investments will be for 2006, or whether there will be any. But if there is one, the popular financial press will start touting it after it has already had a big run. Swayed by tantalizing stories, greedy (and naive) investors will abandon well-diversified portfolios to chase this new “hot” investment just about the time it is about to cool off. -With short-term interest finally high enough to provide a livable yield, money market mutual funds rather than bank accounts will as a rule again offer the best deals for consumers. These funds are not federally insured, but pose minimal if not negligible risk of default, particularly those managed by the bigger companies such as Vanguard and Fidelity. Not long ago, when interest rates were rock bottom, many banks were paying higher rates on money market and savings accounts than money market mutual funds. But now, higher rates accentuate the funds’ yield advantage. Money market funds generally pay the current market interest rates minus their expenses, while most banks tend to be maddeningly slow (or at least slower) to pass on the higher rates to consumers. Luckily, there are exceptions, particularly among Internet-based banks that offer the same federal deposit insurance as their brick-and-mortar counterparts but are not saddled with so many overhead expenses. For a list of higher-yielding bank money market and savings accounts and money market mutual funds, you can check Web sites such as and -Several times next year (at least two or three times a month), I will receive a letter or e-mail from a reader who lost money in an investment and claims he was duped. Almost always it will be a perfectly legitimate investment, but one that from all indications was not appropriate for a person in the reader’s situation (too much risk and/or little liquidity, for example). The reader will blame an “adviser” for talking him into making the investment, then will admit he made it without understanding it. The lesson that still has not been learned: Never, and I mean never, invest in something you do not understand. -Consumer-electronics enthusiasts (addicts?) will find the cost of many new products and services is higher than what it appears at first glance. You may have to spend hundreds of dollars for mounting devices and/or help wiring and putting up a wall-hanging big plasma TV, for example. And you will likely need larger memory cards to hold a collection of downloaded songs on “high-end” cell phones (not to mention monthly charges to access a music library plus as much as $2.50 every time you download a song). Openly marketed to instant-gratification users, these expensive “toys” will make it increasingly harder to save for consumers without the discipline to put a limit on their spending. If you “must” have these devices, learn about all costs before you buy, including recurring ones. If you still want to buy them, go ahead, but commit not to go over the amount you have budgeted. -Drooling over the lucrative baby boomer market, particularly the large sums accumulated in 401(k)s and rollover IRAs, insurance companies and other financial services firms will come up with a slew of new products and services designed to turn these nest eggs into sustainable retirement income (or, in industry jargon, convert “assets” to “cash flow”). Educated and discerning consumers stand to benefit greatly by the competition among these firms and by the ever-growing number of choices, including different types of annuities and systematic and guaranteed withdrawal plans. But the complexity of these products – many make the Medicare drug benefit simple by comparison – may lead consumers to make poor decisions, including some that are irrevocable or, at best, carry substantial penalties to reverse. -My last prediction – oops, expectation – for 2006: The media will again be full of market predictions, all useless.
