Year: OS House / Johnsen Schmaling Architects “COPY” Photographs: Johnsen Schmaling Architects Text description provided by the architects. The OS House by Johnsen Schmaling Architects is located in downtown Racine, Wisconsin and attempts to redefine the urban fabric of this historic rustbelt city. Sited on a narrow lot between a 3-story mansion and a mid-century ranch, the colorful 1,900sf residence is a welcome and dynamic intervention to the streetscape.Save this picture!© Johnsen Schmaling Architects Recommended ProductsFiber Cements / CementsSwisspearlSwisspearl Largo Fiber Cement PanelsWindowsVitrocsaMinimalist Window – SlidingEnclosures / Double Skin FacadesIsland Exterior FabricatorsCurtain Wall Facade SystemsWindowsAir-LuxSliding Window – CurvedFrom an organizational standpoint, the OS House is a simple rectangular volume that serves as a transition piece between the large mass of the mansion and the low profile of the adjacent ranch. The residence also serves as a transition between the street and the shores of Lake Michigan through the use of glazing and outdoor spaces. Save this picture!© Johnsen Schmaling Architects Upon approaching the main entry courtyard of the OS House, the architects’ strategic use of glazing is evident: despite being rectangular in volume, the interior of the residence is a compilation of intricately carved niches visually connected by a series of sliding or stationary glazed panels . These niches include unique indoor/outdoor spaces such as elevated patios, a shaded main level terrace, and a glazed vestibule adjacent to the dining room. The organization capitalizes on the fantastic views afforded by the site. Save this picture!© Johnsen Schmaling Architects Perhaps the most notable architectural feature of the OS House would be the rainscreen: a system of thin concrete panels suspended between steel channels. In addition to being a radical architectural statement, this assembly creates an 8” deep ventilated envelope that contributes to the superior performance of the residence. Save this picture!© Johnsen Schmaling Architects Apart from being a radical formal departure from the existing neighborhood context, the OS House is is one of the first LEED Platinum residences in the Midwest. The project utilizes a variety of sustainable materials including a ventilated rainscreens, high-efficiency glazing, low-flow water fixtures, and permeable surfaces to mitigate stormwater runoff. These materials, coupled with innovative technologies such as a free-standing PV array, photovoltaic roof laminates, and a deep-well geothermal heating/cooling system allows the residence to operate off the grid for most of the year (and even function as a net producer during peak energy harvest).Save this picture!© Johnsen Schmaling Architects Project gallerySee allShow lessTimisoara’s Highseat / PrechteckArticlesCommercial Complex for Building Industry Proposal / Alireza Mahdizadeh Hakak, Ali Al…Articles Share Photographs ArchDaily CopyAbout this officeJohnsen Schmaling ArchitectsOfficeFollowProductsWoodGlassSteel#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesDabasResidentialRacineSustainabilityHouses3D ModelingUnited StatesPublished on August 13, 2011Cite: “OS House / Johnsen Schmaling Architects” 13 Aug 2011.

This study concludes that very correlation among a wider sampling of charities around the world. A development plan serves as a time-tested roadmap for charities to navigate through uncertain times like what we’re experiencing this year. But, possibly more importantly, by involving other stakeholders like senior management and boards with the fundraisers in creating a data-informed plan, it can lead to a broader philanthropic culture which understands that fundraising isn’t transactional. Both benefits are essential to a charity’s sustainability and thrivability, especially now.”Sarah TeDesco, Executive Vice President at Donor Search and report sponsor added:“In a constantly changing environment, innovation is key to the success of so many organisations. While planning is hugely important, so is embracing innovative techniques such as models and technology to enhance the current donor experience. While more than half of respondents acknowledge a lack of innovation when it came to their objectives and fundraising goals, with the publication of this report, I hope it might inspire change to do things better and differently.” 560 total views, 2 views today Lack of philanthropic culture in nonprofits hindering income growth, finds study While most fundraisers believe their nonprofit is donor-centric, less than half say philanthropy is embedded at the core of their organisation, with this lack of philanthropic culture hindering income growth, according to research released today.The report, Development Plans and Fundraising Performance, from the Institute for Sustainable Philanthropy, examines how planning is undertaken in the fundraising sector and its impact on income. It presents data from a study of 325 fundraisers globally to demonstrate the importance of fundraising planning and provide statistical evidence to show that strategic planning drives higher income growth, donor retention and fundraiser confidence.During its study, the Institute for Sustainable Philanthropy found that while the many organisations do have fundraising plans in place and recognise the need for strategic planning, many lack philanthropic culture and engagement from the board.In fact, while 84% of the fundraisers questioned say they believe their nonprofit is donor-centric in that it is organised around donor need, fewer than half (48%) feel that philanthropy is embedded at the core of their organisation. Just 40% of respondents believe that colleagues outside of the fundraising team could clearly articulate the case for support.Dr Adrian Sargeant, Co-Director of the Institute for Sustainable Philanthropy and report author said:“Failure to plan is effectively planning to fail – it’s crucial that charities of all sizes engage in rigorous planning with the involvement of fundraisers, senior management and the board. But our research also proves a clear link between philanthropic culture and fundraising success – those nonprofits whose boards value and respect the work of fundraising teams and support them and their planning process have better fundraising performance. I urge any organisation that wants to markedly increase its fundraising income to make developing its philanthropic culture an absolute priority.”The report finds too that while the vast majority (95%) of fundraisers believe planning to be an immensely valuable process, just over a quarter of fundraisers (28%) say their organisation lacks a formal planning document. Larger organisations (those with a turnover above $1m) are more likely (78%) to have a written plan compared to smaller nonprofits (63%).In addition, the report argues, fundraising plans have greater levels of success in terms of revenue growth, donor retention and fundraiser confidence when the board is involved in their design. In most cases, the senior management team (75%) is involved in fundraising planning, but fewer than half of respondents (45%) report involvement at board level.And, while the research shows that the board has a crucial role in the development of philanthropic culture, it also reveals that only 57% of fundraisers feel that their Board is supportive of them, while a fifth of fundraisers do not believe their organisation views them as professionals. However, it finds, professional recognition of fundraisers is higher in those organisations that formalise fundraising planning.Barbara O’Reilly, Senior Fundraising Consultant at Windmill Hill Consulting and report sponsor commented: Advertisement 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.

Facebook By Digital AIM Web Support – March 4, 2021 Pinterest WhatsApp Twitter JANESVILLE, Wis.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Feb 3, 2021– Janesville based biotechnology company, American Extractions, continues to scale quickly capitalizing on their unique, self-developed plant extraction technology that is taking the hemp and CBD industries by storm. The result of this revolutionary technology is the birth of “Whole Spectrum™” CBD which goes far beyond traditional “full spectrum” (includes other cannabinoids and terpenes besides just CBD) and “broad spectrum” (like full spectrum but THC free). Whole Spectrum™ CBD is made by leveraging American Extraction’s proprietary “Cellular Deconstruction™” technology (CDT) that captures effectively 100% of available cannabinoid molecules in their entirety and does not use CO2, solvents, or any noxious chemicals. This, the company claims, leads to more bioavailability and products that are faster acting, longer lasting and provide stronger results than competitive processes. Company founder, president and lead-researcher, John Goepfert, has been experimenting with different extraction methods since 2013 when he started processing salicin (a naturally occurring pain reliever) from willow bark. Since then, he has perfected the company’s proprietary Cellular Deconstruction™ technology which leads to extraction rates of virtually 100% of available cannabinoids and delivers 95%+ after refinement. CDT is rooted in physics, not chemistry and is far superior to common CO2, ethanol, and petro-chemical extraction methods because it doesn’t damage or leave behind valuable cannabinoids. The outcome is so pure and potent, American Extractions’ distillate crystallizes naturally at concentrations as low as 35%, which likely leads to the only all-natural CBD isolate on the market. After completing a second round of Wisconsin-based funding in mid-2020, the company is now positioned to meet rapidly growing customer and industry demand. As the CBD market continues to mature, the category is ripe for transformation. Retailers and brands are calling for more innovation and need meaningful product differentiation to stand out in what has become a crowded and confusing health supplement category. With Whole Spectrum™ as the new quality standard, available through white label and private label programs, American Extractions is poised to help.

Brittany Gottke(BLUE ROCK, Ohio) — For 364 days, the Gottke sisters waited to hug their dad.On Saturday, they finally got their chance, as the girls’ family and community welcomed Sgt. First Class Terry Gottke back from a tour of duty in Afghanistan.When a fire truck with its sirens blaring passed their house, Tawny, 7, and Brea, 5, of Blue Rock, Ohio, just outside Columbus, took notice. And, they were all tears of joy when Gottke stepped off the truck, surprising them.“Daddy! Daddy’s here!” Tawny exclaimed, giving him a huge kiss on the cheek.Brittany Gottke told ABC News Monday that it was both her and Terry Gottke’s idea to have him arrive in a fire truck, decked out in head-to-toe firefighting gear.
