For this ground that looks too long and tight, we adopted a way to construct a house by reinterpreting scale, natural light, and the use of each room instead of setting one concept to design it. We made 5 specific proposals. 1, Balancing of scale and light Save this picture!SectionHeight of each room is adjusted according to the number of users and the use of the room. For example, children’s bedroom is 1.3m high while the living room is 4.4m. The room used by one person has limited natural light while the space people gather is much brighter. Balancing of scale and light bring a character to simple one room.2, Exterior on the edgeSave this picture!Courtesy of Katsutoshi Sasaki + AssociatesThe ground was too narrow to allow any space for garden, so we set an inner garden at the end of the ground floor and a terrace on the north end of the second floor. High window in the living room is designed not only to let in light, but also to provide ventilation route in summer to discharge the heat accumulated up on the ceiling plane.3. DismantlingSave this picture!Courtesy of Katsutoshi Sasaki + AssociatesBy dismantling living room and dining room, we avoided large area concentrated to one place. As these spaces that have public nature are dispersed, lines of flow work effectively. Also, by deconcentrating the factors required to children’s room such as sleep, storage or study, we can reduce the floor space of children’s bedroom while sharing space for other functions of storage and study by entire family.4.UnrestrictingSave this picture!Second Floor PlanWe suggested the way of living to utilize the space other than wet areas (kitchen, bathroom etc) without restricting its purpose. In sum, the space setting becomes neutral; you can sleep, dine or relax whenever you like. For example, dining in inner garden may be more enjoyable than in dining room.5. OverlappingSave this picture!Courtesy of Katsutoshi Sasaki + AssociatesBy overlapping multiple uses on one space, efficiency of floor space is improved. Corridor as desk space, inner garden as dining or guest room, and so on. This narrow and long building that could be described as all lines of flow, is designed as functional, effective and liberating space by applying these operations.

However, this is the first time that a portrait of the Queen on horseback has been used on a Gold Quarter Sovereign, making it a world first to mark an historic event.Only 2,018 Gold Quarter Sovereigns are being issued. The coins are 14mm in diameter, made of solid 22-carat gold, and available for £98 each exclusively from The Bradford Exchange site or by phone.The Gold Quarter Sovereign is one of a set of three coins released by The Bradford Exchange to celebrate this Royal Jubilee, including the Enthroned Queen Half Sovereign and Double Effigy Full Sovereign.Reflecting the equestrian portrait on the 2018 Gold Quarter Sovereign and the Queen’s well-known love for horses, The Bradford Exchange is donating the full set of coins, worth over £1,500, to The Horse Rangers Association at a ceremony today (Thursday 31 May), two days before the Queen’s Sapphire Coronation Jubilee.Jeremy Richardson, Director at The Horse Rangers Association, said:“We are delighted to be receiving this kind donation from The Bradford Exchange and we will be able to put it to good use. At the age of ninety two the Queen is still a keen horsewoman and this is an inspiration to us all, so it feels appropriate that her commemorative coin will help us to continue our own work of encouraging youngsters to develop and grow as individuals through horse-riding.” AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis3 About Melanie May Melanie May is a journalist and copywriter specialising in writing both for and about the charity and marketing services sectors since 2001.

China calls for lifting of U.S. sanctions against Iran

first_imgAmid the fight against the coronavirus COVID-19, China called on March 16 for the immediate lifting of U.S. sanctions on Iran, one of the countries hardest hit by the pandemic. China’s call came in response to a letter sent by Iranian President Hassan Rouhani to leaders of several countries.CodePink demonstrates in front of the Treasury Department, Washington, D.C., on March 11.Rouhani accused the U.S. government of continuing to thwart Iran’s efforts to counter the pandemic, noting that sanctions have caused around $200 billion in direct damages to Iran’s economy in less than two years. The U.S. sanctions have now severely limited Iran’s access to vital medical supplies to combat the disease.Speaking at a press briefing, China’s Foreign Ministry spokesperson Geng Shuang supported Iran’s call, noting that continued unilateral sanctions imposed on Iran have deteriorated health conditions in the country and “gone against the humanitarian spirit.” He added that the sanctions seriously affect Iran’s fight against the pandemic and limit humanitarian aid from the United Nations and other international organizations. (English.chinamil.com)China has already sent test kits and other anti-epidemic materials, plus a team of voluntary experts, to Iran.  The team is encouraging the international community to support Iran.

Don’t overlook a key strategic asset in call centre staff

first_imgRelated posts:No related photos. Outsourcing a big segment of routine HR responsibilities to a call centrecan be beneficial, but companies must remember to invest as much in their callcentre employees as they would in any new investment or serviceGetting bums on seats is a splendid tenet for the world of entertainment.But when transferred from theatre land to the call centre workplace, therecould hardly be a more appalling principle. Why is it then that despite protestations across the call centre industry tothe contrary, ‘rope ’em in, stack ’em high and drive ’em hard’ is still theprevailing approach to their staff? Call centres continue to be notorious for their churn, with average staffturnover around 32 per cent. Companies are still putting their entire destiniesinto the hands of their worst-trained, worst-paid and worst-motivated people. Workers’ tasks are crushingly boring and repetitive, they are subjected toviolent outbursts from frustrated callers, they operate withinstrictly-controlled regimes, they have no scope or encouragement to developindividual skills, and their sense of fulfilment is zero. In such an atmosphere employees are principally concerned with their ownsurvival rather than care for the customer. But then self-preservation is arguably no more than natural in anenvironment where 6 per cent of the workforce suffers from serious psychiatricproblems – double the rate for the general working population. The trouble from the company’s point of view is that call centre staff livewith their customers – its lifeblood – every day, and it is from them thatcustomers form their image. Furthermore, with call centres often the only interface between business andthe outside world, they are increasingly becoming an organisation’s soleshowcase, with the abilities and attitudes of staff playing a vital part inbuilding the brand and consumer trust in that brand. We live in an age when the way companies care for and present themselves totheir patrons can be a significant competitive differentiator, and those thatfail to adequately invest in their staff will weaken their market position andultimately endanger their survival. Yet they continue to subject employees to the relentless strain of quotas,judging them by the quantity of their daily contacts rather than the quality ofhow they interact with callers. If people are poorly trained and poorly treated, the result is high levelsof staff turnover and low levels of service, which is why the issue of calibreand retention of employees should be on every board’s agenda. It is also whyboards must become far more closely involved in how centres are run and manned.After all, ensuring that maximum return is derived from an organisation’smost valuable asset is within the compass of its directors. Companies must regard their call centre workforces as a strategic asset andapply as much focus to investment in people as they would to an important newproduct or service. That means senior executives directly participating inrecruitment, training, development and working environment and not leaving itsolely to the subordinate strata of HR and call centre management. Where management has imposed a systems strategy, boards should superimpose apeople strategy. They should also closely engage themselves in selectionpolicies and candidate quality and in how staff are taught, handled andencouraged to fulfil their potential. As part of that, they should ensure employees are armed with the personaland inter-personal skills that underpin relationships, and are empowered tobecome knowledge workers, with a wide availability of information and mediachannels, rather than script-reading robots. Above all, at the forefront of their minds they should carry the maxim thatthe way to a customer’s heart lies not in software and systems, but in people.And for the company that values its future, something more is needed thanmerely bums on seats.
