Once again, two American architecture schools lead the pack for architecture and interior design. For undergraduate studies, once again, Cornell University takes top honors for 2019 — a position it has held for 8 of the last 9 years. And for advanced degrees, the longtime leader of the pack is Harvard University’s Graduate School of Design (GSD), which has been ranked #1 for the last 6 years in a row.

If you’re a little fuzzy about Cornell’s place in the world of design, don’t worry — the school is perhaps better known for its technical prowess in engineering. But you probably have heard about one its famous students, the Dutch-born starchitect Rem Koolhaas.

By the early 2000s, Cornell recognized that their architecture teaching facilities and student design studios were due for a makeover. So, in an inspired “eat your own dogfood” moment, they engaged former student Rem Koolhaas to come back to re-envision the campus environment for students at Cornell’s College of Architecture, Art, and Planning (AAP).

The result, Milstein Hall, is a remarkable achievement. When it opened in 2011, the 47,000 sq foot building — designed by Koolhaas and OMA principal Shohei Shigematsu — created a new ‘center of gravity’ for the design arts at Cornell.

Inside Milstein, you can find the stunning new L. P. Kwee Studios — a light-filled open space whose hybrid truss superstructure boldly cantilevers 50 feet over University Avenue — providing much-needed studio space for around 285 students.

As Cornell’s needs for studio space grew, Formaspace was there to help.

With the benefit of a gift from Cornell Alumna Frances Shloss, (B.Arch. ’45), the university was able to engage NYC-based LEVENBETTS architects to undertake a sensitive renovation of historic East Sibley Hall — to create a new state-of-the-art studio space for another 60 students.

Opening in 2014, the new Frances Shloss Studios at East Sibley Hall combines the best of the past — such as original pine floors and antique windows — with the best of the future, including overhead skylights and Formaspace’s renowned industrial-strength desks, tables, and workbenches.

According to Aaron Stoneburner, the Industrial Design and Engineering Team Manager at Formaspace, the Cornell project called for over 300 Basix workbenches, each one kitted out with laminate plywood worksurfaces. Formaspace also manufactured 230 custom storage units for the Frances Shloss Studios, each one designed with two stacked file drawers.

The steel-framed Formaspace furniture incorporates key details that make life easier for students, including a pull-out shelf under the worksurface for storing drawings, built-in power strips for computers, glue guns, and other devices — all of which can be stored in the built-in drawer under the desk — as well as a soft, felt privacy panel that provides space to pin drawings, mood boards, and other important reference items.

As is so often the case, one project leads to another. As the Cornell project was wrapping up, Formaspace got a call from Harvard University’s Graduate School of Design, thanks to a referral from Cornell. Harvard wanted to renovate the interior studio space of its iconic Gund Hall on the Cambridge campus, and they wanted Formaspace to assist with updated furnishings.

Designed by Australian-born GSD graduate John Andrews, Gund Hall opened in 1972. Its massive angled roof allows natural light to flood into the student studio workspaces inside, while providing views of downtown Boston across the Charles River.

After decades of use, the individual studio work areas at Gund Hall were in need of a major refresh. Harvard commissioned Formaspace to create and install new furniture — right down to replacing all 160 of the original metal “spines” that anchor the worksurfaces and panels to the floor.

The new furniture was manufactured at Formaspace’s Austin, Texas factory headquarters, including 400 new worksurfaces, silver-painted pegboard panels, and updated translucent acrylic privacy panels.

Once everything was ready, Formaspace shipped the new furniture to Harvard and performed an onsite installation — in only three weeks — to minimize disruption on campus.

“Several aspects made this a challenging project for us,” says Formaspace’s Stoneburner. He notes that “the floors that comprise the five tiers of Gund Hall’s stadium-like interior aren’t level, which meant quite a bit of fine tuning during the manufacturing and installation process. Temperature shift was another issue inside the building — we made provisions for the acrylic panel fittings to allow expansion without cracking. And we were able to find new sources of Baltic birch plywood, as our regular supplier in Japan was disrupted due to a major earthquake.”

Laura Winckel of Quality Quilts by Laura to be Featured on CUTV News Radio

HARKER HEIGHTS, TEXAS, UNITED STATES, August 19, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — When you think of self-made and spirited women, Laura Winckel is one who truly fits the mold. About eight years ago she turned her artistic talents from a hobby that brought comfort to the community and many servicepeople into a real business. With the exception of her mother, who gifted her the long arm quilting machine that broadened her natural capabilities, Laura did it with her ingenuity and determination.

Today, the owner of Quality Quilts by Laura runs an ever-growing business and has begun to take her talents into dynamic new teaching and lecturing engagements. She cautions other entrepreneurs not to fool themselves into thinking they can do it all. You have to focus on your strengths, relinquish some control or some capital, and let others take the load off of you. Otherwise, Laura says, you won’t be able to meet demands as the business picks up. For Laura, that has translated into hiring a bookkeeper, using a professional to help with marketing and PR, and hiring other quilting artists to help assemble and sew pieces.

Laura’s business is headquartered in Harker Heights, Texas. Her town is pretty close to Houston, where some of the nation’s largest and most prestigious quilt shows are held. It is also an Army base, and Laura’s husband is a retired serviceman. This might explain why one of her major focuses as a quilting artist is the Quilts of Valor Foundation, established in 2003. Laura says being able to curl up in the quilts she collaboratively makes and awards, is a major source of warmth, pride and comfort for soldiers, and can even help with PTSD. To date, the foundation has awarded more than 180,000 quilts. Laura’s work for them has been featured in the Killeen Daily Herald and can also be viewed on her website and Facebook pages.

The importance of a presence on social media is another piece of business advice Laura is happy to share. She stresses that making a name for yourself can be as much an effort as doing all the production. In addition to social media and recommendations, she meets clients at competitions, advertises in magazines, and uses communications such as this radio series. “If you’re not out there beating your own drum, who is going to beat your drum for you?” she says with the lilting voice and sense of humor that make Laura such a popular lecturer.

Tune in to learn more about Laura’s work–which includes commissioned pieces, new and award-winning leather pieces, and the Quilts of Valor designs (which will be most uplifting on September 11th.)

CUTV News Radio will feature Businesswoman and Quilt Artist Laura Winckel in interviews with Jim Master’s, on August 21st and 28th and September 4th and 11th

Listen to the Shows on Blog Talk Radio

Sri Lanka Betrays its People by Promoting Alleged War Criminal to head its Army

Shavendra Silva 2009

seen in May 2009 (man pointing)

This is a man who has shown his willingness to violate international law,” said ITJP Executive Director Yasmin Sooka, “his promotion will spark fear throughout the country..”

— Yasmin Sooka

JOHANNESBURG, SOUTH AFRICA, August 19, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — The Sri Lankan President’s decision to appoint a notorious alleged war criminal, Major General Shavendra Silva, as Commander of the Army is immensely damaging to the country and marks the end of any reconciliation process, given the allegations of war crimes and crimes againt humanity against him.

In January this year the International Truth and Justice Project published a 137-page Dossier on Silva which showed there was more than enough evidence to charge him with war crimes and crimes against humanity. Instead he has now been promoted to the most powerful job in the army just months before important elections.

“This is a man who has shown his willingness to violate international law,” said ITJP Executive Director Yasmin Sooka, “his promotion will spark fear throughout the country but especially among the hundreds of thousands of Tamils who suffered immense loss in 2009 when Silva allegedly oversaw attacks on civilian sites”.

Shavendra Silva has also never been held accountable for his role in crushing the Janatha Vimukthi Peramuna (JVP) or People’s Liberation Front uprising in the late eighties during which there were credible allegations of summary executions, enforced disappearances, torture and sexual violence, and the detention of thousands of Sinhala youth. Some of the violations occurred in Matale where Silva was based, serving under Gotabaya Rajapaksa who commanded the first Gajaba Regiment there.

“After so much bloodshed Sri Lankans need to hold their leaders accountable in order to stop the repeated cycles of violence. Silva’s promotion however sends a message of total impunity,” added Ms. Sooka.

Silva’s appointment also throws into question US assistance to the Sri Lankan Army which is subject to Leahy Laws which prohibit the U.S. from providing military assistance to foreign security force units that violate human rights with impunity. The appointment could also potentially impact Sri Lanka’s recent resumption of deployment of UN peacekeepers. Peacekeeping deployment was put on hold for most of 2018 while more stringent vetting arrangements were put in place to ensure soldiers who had fought in units (such as Silva’s 58 Division) in areas where alleged war crimes took place in 2008-9 were screened out.

“I imagine there has been intense diplomatic lobbying to stop Sri Lanka taking this step – with all the consequences explained. It’s striking an own goal for any country to take this step and frankly disheartening particularly for the Rule of Law,” added Sooka.

“I very much hope Sri Lanka’s allies will now take a principled step and ensure Major General Shavendra Silva is not granted a visa to travel abroad even on official duty.”

LONDON, GREATER LONDON, UK, August 19, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — The global military drones market was valued at about $12.1 billion in 2018 and is expected to grow to $19.04 billion at a CAGR of 12.0% through 2022.

The military drones market consists of sales of military drones and related services. The military drones are specifically used for military purposes such as border surveillance, battle damage management, combat operations, communication, delivery, and anti-terrorism weaponry. Military drones include tactical drones, MALE (Medium altitude, long endurance) drones, HALE (High altitude, long endurance) drones, TUAV (Tactical unmanned air vehicle) drones, UCAV (Unmanned combat air vehicle) drones, SUAV (Small unmanned air vehicle) drones and others.

The military drones market has been geographically segmented into North America, Western Europe, APAC, Eastern Europe, South America and Middle East & Africa. The North American market is the largest market for military drones and is expected to continue to be the largest market during the forecast period

Increasing government funding on military drones to enhance efficiency in military operations boosts the demand for the production of military drones. According to the 2018 report published by the Bard College Center for the Study of the Drone, in 2019 U.S. Navy funding for unmanned systems increased by $1 billion (38%) and U.S Army funding increased by $719 million (73%) when compared to the 2018. Furthermore, Department of Defense in U.S requested approximately $9.39 billion for drones and associated technologies in the fiscal year 2019 representing a significant expansion of 26% in drone spending over 2018 budget, $7.5 billion. Hence, the increasing government spending on unmanned drones is driving the military drones market.

The shortage of trained and skilled military drone pilots equates lesser usage hindering the military drone market growth. Military drones are more sophisticated compared to commercial drones and require trained pilots to operate them. Though the current budget supports purchases of military drones, lack of trained professionals could lead to lesser drone utilization. According to an article on The Washington Post published in 2016, the lack of skilled drone pilots caused the US military to cut 8 % of its drone combat missions in 2015. The number of active pilots in the US has declined from over 800,000 in 1980 to barely 600,000 in 2017 and are in need of 637,000 drone pilots.
Major players in the military drones market include Northrop Grumman, Lockheed Martin, Boeing, AeroVironment and General Atomics.
